"She was a student of Princess Celestia"... implying she knows certain secrets and powerful magic...

...are we looking at the instigator of Equestria Girls?
I would be 100% ok with this if that's what happens.

...Now I'm just picturing the scene...Canterlot...Sun is shining, birds are singing...The first day of Princess Twilight Sparkle's new career...

"So...Let me get this straight. You were her student before me?" Neutral

"Yes...And then you went and entered the picture and she just kicked me to the curb!" Mad

"Sorry, I didn't know-" Shocked

"SORRY!? SORRY!?!? Oh, YOU'RE GONNA BE SORRY!!" Twisted Evil

And then Sunset causes whatever problem is the focus of the season 4 premiere via trying to murder Twilight.

Yeah, but I could see her inadvertently saying something without the intent to cause harm, but then her student misinterprets her words and thinks of it as being thrown to the curb Smile

True...

Still, I don't think Sunset Shimmer is going to be any trouble. I mean she wouldn't be one of the six ponies at the top of the forum if she was a baddie now would she?

Actually, that pony is someone's OC. Sunset's Cutie Mark is the sun, while the OC pony up there has a flame...

Still, your point remains. I doubt they will make toys for an antagonist before she has appeared...

... I was joking.

I noticed the differences thank you very much. I was just pointing out how damn similar the designs are.

Season 4!

Post  Zarhon on Sat Jul 20, 2013 7:12 pm

Well, looks like we've got ourselves a look at season 4! Better update the thread title, Aproc, it's pony discussions time again! Very Happy 

As a reminder, any discussions within this thread are likely to contain a huge amount of spoilers. Keep stuff in spoiler tags for everyone's convenience.

Our first glimpse/preview/spoilers of season 4 come in the form of an animatic, straight from Comic Con! (spoilers in link)

Discussion ho!
Comic Con Vid preview:
The vid is a storyboard animatic, split across four episodes, it seems.

- First clip is Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon vigorously mocking Scootaloo for her inability to fly, and how she'll "never get chosen" as a representative of Ponyville for some kind of games. Looks like they've upgraded on their psychological abuse.

- Second clip opens up with Spike in Maretropolis, disguised as a superhero, along with the Mane Six, who are apparently Pony Rangers Power Ponies! Then some kind of villain is revealed robbing a bank - a mixture of Ursula and Doctor Octopus (using her mane). Many squee's were had.

- Third clip is a (VERY catchy) song, sung by the Apple family and Pinkie Pie as they travel along the countryside in their cart. It's comparable to Smile Smile Smile in quality!

- Fourth clip is Twilight Sparkle, confused, as she suddenly confronts Luna, who pretty much snaps, is engulfed in evil stuff, and turns into Nightmare Moon. I think this is a flashback of some sort.

You're welcome.

NMM returns, I've heard theories that its a dream, or time travel. I personally hope its neither. Also, Scootaloo is CONFIRMED old enough to fly, CONFIRMED that she should be able to, but can't- which means some headcanons are taking damage early. Episode should come with some feels.

Power Rangers. Or super heroes. Best Episode.

Pros:
It's all looking good...

Cons:
They made a setting which would have made one of my campaigns 10x better now that I think about it...

Monochrome Lineart Animatic? I can see how that could be a neat setting.

November 23, everyone set every alarm you own. Wrap yourselves in calendars. Don't change the channel from the hub so you don't miss it.

Also, Sept 1st Equestria girls, for all you nerds that didn't go see it already.

I am only in one of the aforementioned fanbases, and even then only marginally

But I must say I will enjoy watching Tumblr explode

(Also imagine if somehow Homestuck's final update was on that day Tumblr would explode twice)

Post  Zarhon on Sat Dec 07, 2013 10:30 pm

Edit: Wait, should I be posting in this thread or the other one? We have two, apparently.

Have a pair of more best worst commentaries!

Castle-Mania:
- Pictured: Every member of the educational system, everywhere, ever.
- Murder quota: Book, duster.
- Twilight needs to brush up on her wiki skills.
- At least she can Jenga.
- Okay, how did Celestia know that Twilight was in need of a book at that very moment? Is she spying on her? Reading her mind?
- "We couldn't bother with, let alone afford, renovations."
- "No, I won't tell you where my secret book is. Hope you like vague hints."
- Bookboner, activate!
- That's a really uncanny looking statue, compared to everypony else. Artist must have been high as a kite.
- "Pay no attention to the demonic spiders."
- BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY
- Those bees kind of stand out from there
- Also, BEEEEES
- Dammit Pinkie, stop making me go check the transcripts.
- The hell, Gummy. Do you have no pain receptors at all?
- Wait, are they competing to blink last, or move last? Just the whole 'not blink' issue eventually makes your eyes hurt. They don't even need bees.
- And why the suits? Real people have done this without a suit.
- Excellent score.
- Pinkie, those aren't even...
- And then the children had yet another reason to hate the educational system - THE BELLS
- "Alright, we need somepony to do this obnoxious job. Any ideas on who we should ask?"
"Pinkie Pie."
"Pinkie Pie."
"Me!"
- "No, It's not 'gay chicken', RD. That's just pointless."
- I would hate to walk through a forest during any spider season, let alone star-spider season.
- Angel does not approve of this trip.
- "Because of reasons."
- "And greed. Greed too."
- "I call bullshit on that, Rarity."
- Tee hee, that gag.
- THE SHADOW KNOWS
- Why did you take Angel with you here anyway? He can handle himself at home just fine!
- "I need these to summon the hellbeasts, of course!"
- Let's be frank: When was Granny Smith wrong about something?
- My little animations: Recycling is magic!
- That looks dangerous for one's teeth.
- "Don't be a smartass, Rarity."
- "Well, she's dead."
- Wouldn't Fluttershy hear and recognize the duo below her?
- Don't tempt fate, Rarity.
- Angel is such a dipshit.
- Silly looking colonel picture returns. And some old granny. Bet she's the villain this season.
- Don't be a wuss, Spike.
- It's a secret to everypony.
- The book has a smiley face. Now you can't unsee it.
- Who makes these kinds of decorations?
- Okay Dash that is adorable.
- Rarity: Still a mistress of sarcasm.
- And then shipping happens.
- Ahh, the classic cutaway gag.
- Dammit, you just passed the important bits you two. Turn around!
- Seriously, it's like, 10 feet away.
- "What else could it be, magic?"
- Rarity, castles don't have opinions.
- Is a piece of armor really that terrifying?
- As are statues, apparently.
- Fun fact: That dragon statue was actually visible in the previous episode, during the flashback (the sisters fly past it in a few frames).
- Everypony scream!
- Rarity, get your priorities straight.
- Rarity looks kind of bald in that one shot.
- Donald Duck sound effects!
- "I win if you're dead, right?"
- That frame doesn't make any geometrical sense. And how did she know Rainbow went that way?
- When in doubt, abuse Rarity.
- Seriously? You, Rainbow Dash, a weather-pony, are afraid of lightning?!
- Tilt!
- Rarity's legs look so silly in that frame.
- Years of therapy, lost to one shadow.
- "Don't be a pussy, spike."
- "EVERYONE CHILL THE BUCK OUT!"
- Also if she can do that, the implications are rather worrying.
- Twilight, is your horn growing?
- "Twilight, please stop trying to absorb us into one ultimate best pony."
- SUDDENLY, THE EPIC PLOT TWIST NOPONY EXPECTED IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED
- Also shame Pinkie Pie isn't here.
- OH SNAP!
- She knows how to grind that organ.
- Dat... bellring.
- Dammit Pinkie I don't want to read the transcripts every time you say something.
- The cupcakes party, of course! Much less witnesses here!".
- That is a very specific trap for a very specific creature to affect.
- Strangely enough, this might actually be a thing that happens for Pinkie Pie.
- Moral of the story: In a land of magic and legitimate horrors that defy logic and reason, being one of them is a good way to avoid being a wuss.
- And then future generations would be maddened in their attempts to discern Pinkie Pie's entries.
- "Dear diary: I enjoy tempting fate."
- NOPONY EXPECTS THE - Oh bugger!

Daring Don't:
- Being a druid is thankless work.
- Pictured: An accurate representation of Bronies between seasons / episodes.
- Aztec/Maya/Incan ponies! Also, how do they hold those bows?
- Tails... Work that way, apparently?
- That bird looks so happy to be used as a projectile.
- Now THAT is a well-used visual gag.
- Dat pronking.
- Ponies with hats!
- AJ, not wearing her hat? BLASPHEMY! Although it does look awesome.
- Squee!
- "What? I was reading fanfi- I mean yes, Daring Do books. Right."
- Ewwww. Dash!
- Withdrawal symptoms, go!
- Angry Dashface!
- And then the plot quickly turns into one of "Misery".
- TRAVEL BY MAP! Also Indiana Jones / Jurassic Park music!
- Wow, Pinkie just defaced miles of countryside.
- Everyone ignore the smart pony. Also, that horn.
- Slobbish behavior is a distinct possiblity.
- Return of the Dashface.
- "Get off my book, lesbimare!"
- "Pay no attention to my magical, glowing McGuffin."
- Return of the two-button typewriter! I think their idea of making letters involves a mechanism that writes its letters with differing heights, akin to a music sheet.
- Why enter through the roof?
- MY FACE! IT STINGS! NOT THE GLASSES! It's like watching a Leslie Nielsen skit.
- WHAT ARE THE ODDS?!
- So, the thug ponies have a 'surprise', 'biff', and 'punched out' cutie mark.
- [Fanon intensifies]
- Dammit, not you too! I can't watch transcripts for everything!
- I heard that as hate, rather than heat. Still fits, surprisingly.
- Well, her leg's broken and she fails her adventure. BAD END.
- These ponies are very dumb. Also the other ponies are very blind.
- "Especially the clopping!"
- FANON OVERLOAD!
- TRANSCRIPTS ASDGSDGASFGDHFJGFD
- Insecurity relapse, go!
- Stop hitting yourself.
- "DIE, MAIN CHARACTER!"
- Wow. Just. Woooooow.
- "Stupid main characters, who do they think they are?"
- "We can hear you, you know."
- MISTRESS OF DISGUISE!
- Ice burn!
- Dammit Dash if you keep making these faces they'll just be all over the internet.
- Okay Daring Do, you've got this, just fly up and laugh.
- What no don't go fight the cats are you retarded.
- That kick vector is hilarious.
- RD SAVES THE DAY!
- BAD END.
- Touchy feels time!
- Motivation speech time!
- Epic trap time!
- She is not thinking her escape through well enough.
- "Have I mentioned yet that you're a palette swap of me with a different adorable/awesome ratio?"
- "Fine, we can ship later."
- Those tribe-ponies sure have a lack of originality with their cutie marks.
- "Who are those six?"
"Oh, we're just the side characters. Pay no attention to us."
"Kay."
- ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN OF ULTIMATE DESTINY
- Load bearing... Rings? That's a really terrible design plan.
- OBJECTIONNNNNN!
- Wilhelm scream!
- And then countless ponies were buried alive. GOOD END!
- "Okay, shipping time!"
- Oh hey, that's nice of Twilight to make the shared diary emblazoned with a huge logo of just her cutie mark.
- Moral of the episode: Never forget you are a main character.
- That mailpony sure looks un-thrilled to be here.
- And then Dash would be remembered as a literary scrappy.

Now, the latest episode gave us quite a bit of worldbuilding:
1) Aztec/Inca/Mayan ponies are a thing.
2) Daring Do being a real thing (meaning many ponies died horribly across many books).
3) Pinkie Pie defaced half the continent and has infinite amounts of red paint.
4) A new "Region" of Equestria - the "Valley" the events take place within. Along with it, an unmarked "map" of Equestria as they travel through it.
5) A bunch of "canon" events and places and things related to the books. Among them, Quetzalcóatl, which implies the existence of "feathered serpents".
6) The book characters are apparently either far away enough to not know what goes on with A.K. Yearling's  publishing career, or are too oblivious to realize it, or simply ignoring it. Either way, she's dodging quite a few copyright issues and potential ways of having her enemies abuse her writing what is essentially an autobiography.
