Should G5 be a continuation of G4 or a whole new continuity altogether?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
it should be an edgy 18+ gore fest where ponies fucking kill each other and fuck dead bodies and eat them. this is the true mlp, the one i grew up with. not your girly shit.
>starlight new luna

Ideally, G5 would be a new continuity that's just as good as G4 was. Realistically, G4 is going to last until all but the most die hard bronies leave, then G5 is going to be a steaming pile of shit 'for girls' like every generation before 4.
It should be a new continuity, it could make allusions and references to G4, but should be a different universe altogether. Here's an idea on how it could be:
>Set on Ponyland, where the three pony races live together but don't really tolerate each other.
>As a response to her terrible treatment on G4 and wasted potential, the protagonist would be Sunset Shimmer
>She would a different character, but still would have similar design to her G4 counterpart and her personality would be based on her pre-reformation G4 self, bitchy as hell, not as nasty but far from a good girl.
>She would also be an alicorn, and the only one of the setting, and the plot would be centered on her being considered a "chosen one" due to her unique condition, the one that would make the pony races stop fighting each other and unite.
>The expectation of being the savior would immensely annoy her, contributing to her bad attitude, "I don't owe shit to anyone".
>She would be "convinced" on going to an adventure to save whatever, accompanied by a representative of each tribe, expies of Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Maud Pie.
>It would adventure centered, slice of life would be kept to a minimum
>No deus ex machinas (elements of harmony, rainbow power), no animal sidekicks (Spike), no kiddies corner (CMC) and no pink mary sues from out of nowhere (Candyass and Poochie)
>Although separate from G4 altogether, it would mention it on gags and jokes, generally to shit on what ruined it
>It would be considered a success when parents started whining that their daughters were emulating the behavior of the protagonist
>Discord is a secondary gag character, a pony who just likes to MESS THINGS UP XD
>not voiced by De Lancie because that's expensive

A weird event has caused a large number of humans, particularly posters on /mlp/, to disappear from Earth and wake up in the land of Equestria as a pony (or Griffon), and none of them have cutie marks. With the sheer number of “trans-dimensional refugees”, the Royals have decided the best course of action would be to send them all to the expanding southeastern Equestrian frontier. The Royals have sent some bare supplies and materials to get started, and the Equestrians have set up a humble embassy staffed with advisors. More humans are being found across Equestria everyday and being offered the choice to come live here with us!

You and your fellow horsefuckers must work together to make this town flourish, explore, and tame the regional area.

Embassy: The embassy is a building from which the Equestrians direct the effort of building the colony. Almost all Equestrians (and Gryphons helping) working there are volunteers, since the kingdom of Equestria struck a deal with the unexpected visitors: They colonize the forbidden jungle, and get to keep the whole area to themselves.

They are handholding the colony through its first stages

Day 33
The town decides to expand again! @Bit @Ceres @GM Mode ( Daybreak ) @Mistral @Ruin @Stray Shot @Weathervane and @Whiskeyjack volunteer for the task. They split into two teams. One group finds some kind of natural hot waters... Haunted by trickster will'o'wisps!!! The other group find a massive colony of snakes who were forced out of their homes from a flood. They were able to relocate them without injury and everything looks all clear! Hooray!
Adventure by @Rain D. [Starry Step]

Congrats my little ponies, the town borders grows ever more! For now we have a new road, a new mine and even a new segment of the land to call our own! Tune in next update on the 5th of June!

So whose nightmare even was this? Starlight's, or Celestia's?

>In the end she even scorched her own kingdom i
I think this is a bit of a stretch for Daybreaker. Nightmare Moon forced eternal Night because she snapped and wanted Ponies to appreciate the Night, even if it meant by force. Daybreaker didn't really have the same motive
>You don't need anypony, You can do whatever you want! All you have to do is get rid of anyone who stands in your way.

That's her motive right there, to rule unchallenged and alone.

So, wait...
Princess Luna governs the dream realm and helps ponies work through trauma in their nightmares. And She says that if you leave them alone it could have a serious effect on ponies psyche.
But Luna hasn't been around for 1000 years and Celestia hasn't been to the dream realm before 'A Royal Problem'

Is this why all the Adults in Equestria have such severe personality disorders? Cause they didn't have Therapy Dream Horse helping them out?

>Adding nice details.
That's not the writers, it's the animators.

Usually a writer (for a cartoon, sitcom, film) isn't even allowed to give visual hints in their script.

The reason for this is that each group of specialists shouldn't feel restrained or bogged down by "amateurs" from other groups.

Especially for big budget films this is true, where a writer's script is first rewritten by other writers (acts as editors and second opinion) before finally turned into a storyboard by yet another group of people.

Relevant to OP's question. Like, right from the get-go. Issue #1.
There are so many free comics sites that Googling "read sandman" should get you there just fine. Then again I haven't used any in months so I'll check later.
It's a magical setting, Anon.
If you've got a comprehensive doctorate on Equestrian metaphysics I'd like to hear it.
No, seriously. It'd help nail some shit down.

She's probably just overinflating her importance because she doesn't really have anything else going for her.

>Never liked Glimmer
>Thought her motivation for being a villain was a joke
>Intensely disliked the idea of her being reformed into a main character
>Now I am enjoying her episodes more than all the others
How does that happen? Is it because her personality and powers make it feasible to do storylines that weren't possible before?

She does like about five great unimpressed faces when she talks with Twilight in this episode.
>Is it because her personality and powers make it feasible to do storylines that weren't possible before?
I feel like I went through this process with Equestria Girls.
The neat thing about Glimmer's characterization is that she's actually not folding into the "perfect character" model the other characters have been getting into. As the rest of the group learns lessons and grows into well-rounded individuals who think generally about what they do, Glimglam doesn't really like that sort of lifestyle. She's more of a loose cannon who enjoys crazy shit and tries to solve problems with it.

Like Trixie was saying in episode 2 this season, Starlight was starting to get boring by turning into "generic friend number 7". Her anger and outbursts of magic and general nuttiness are what make her fun.

How come Spike and the CMC's don't interact more? They're all the same age, you'd think they would at least have more than one episode together.

Unless they did and I have alzheimers.
I remember vaguely shipping Sweetie and Spike just for that.

Also their episode together in S3 was one of the better episodes of that rather short season.

Pinkie sucks.

Think what you want of Glimmer but Pinkie interfering in her friendship with Maud to the point it fucks up an otherwise healthy relationship is the height of social ineptitude.

Revoke her friendship ambassadorship and kick her out of Twilight's court, I say.

It's about time for my yearly post, so here goes.

Most of you don't care or don't know who I am, which is fine. Feel free to call me a tripfag until hell freezes over.

But, if I'm being honest, I have not watched the show since around S6? The last thing I remember is Starlight Shimmer joined the Main 6 (I think).

Regardless, I haven't watched the show, nor have I posted/lurked on /mlp/. So, I have a potential opportunity (if anyone really cares).

The linked image is the most recent version of the "newfag guide", which has surprisingly been in use (albeit rarely) since 2013. I was inspired to make it due to a overwhelming number of posts asking how the board worked and etc. I maintained the guide through the years (the most recent edit being in 2016), and have asked for changes, additions, removals, and the like to keep up with the state of the board.

But, since I'm no longer browsing nor watching the show, if anyone wants to maintain the guide, they can feel free to request so here. Otherwise, this will more than likely be the last post I make (for a long time, anyways. The ride never ends.)


(Also, not starting with my trip because it's not really needed that much.)

Celestia ruled Equestria for as long as anyone can remember and while she ruled Equestria was a peaceful, prosperous and racially united country with few foreign influences. She disappears and suddenly ponies are race warring against each other and inviting whatever foreigners they can into Equestria to gain some sort of advantage. You'd think that most ponies would want to return to the times of peace & bread by removing all foreign puppets that only seek to encourage division for their own gain.

I wish they'd just have done a historical spin on it, maybe Equestria and the Crystal Empire teaming up to defeat a horde of Diamond Dogs or something.
Wasn't there another historical worldbuilding map that dealt with a bunch of other species in the world? Does anyone remember what it was called?

None of that is original, it's been done to death a million times
Unoriginal and mundane aren't synonyms.
Lower animation costs.
Because the writers lack creativity
It balances out the fantastical elements. The contrast & interplay between relatable living & magical adventures is a large part of ponies appeal, as it has been for many fictional settings going back decades, if not centuries.
Some prefer the lore eps, some prefer the SoL eps, but both are better for the other's presence. Like peanut butter & chocolate.
