604- On Your Marks
Written by Dave Polsky and Josh Haber
Friendship is Magic #41 is due tomorrow (Apr. 13); digital copy should be out in around 8 hours!
Ponyville's not the biggest town, but it's not so small that a filly like Apple Bloom knows all the locals even having grown up there. That is, of course, assuming Tender Taps isn't from out of town. But in either case, he doesn't appear to have been in her class. Different places of learning, or just different rooms? Enough students seem to hang around the school that either Cheerilee has multple classes or there's more than is seen. Maybe the CMC will be able to learn more after having helped him achieve his cutie mark.
There's apparently no dance class at Cheerilee's, anyhow.

The intro is finished!
I'm curious who else feels the same way I do about this
The pony thread simulator videos are actually pretty entertaining in my opinion and
besides them introducing newfags into the boardI think that they themselves are a positive thing.
>just to be in them
Oh I fucking hated that, I feel like that was mostly newfags though. But it was always super obvious.
>lel I want princess celestia to freeze my cum into an icycle and stab me with it
So forced, and board culture went a little shittier because of it
Yah definitely not top-tier anymore, but i wouldn't say downhill does it justice, more like "a gentle downward slope"
I was in one. I posted something along the lines of ">making a pun >not using carlos.jpg". That was a very very pleasant surprise.
You're an autist.
1/10 made me reply. Here's your (You).
fillies feeding fillies
I tried transcribing this in Sibelius. It was frustrating and I didn’t come up with anything worth showing. I’m not sure what’s an eighth note and what’s a sixteenth. I’m not sure what’s a hollow note (aka half note or whole note) and what’s a solid note (quarter, eighth, sixteenth, etc.). I’m not even sure where the measures are. The treble staff and the bass staff certainly don’t line up together as far as beats, and I’m not sure they’re even meant to be played together. There is a key signature of Bb major written next to both staves, and then there’s a key signature of A major written next to the bass staff. The first chord seems to be two quarter notes played together, but then right below that is the inexplicable second key signature (3 sharps) of the bass staff, and the note stem is written so that it goes off the top note head, so I’m not even sure it’s meant to be a chord. It could be some weird artifact, or it could be the previous chord and measure line from the original piece of music this was taken from. Whoever handwrote this has terrible penmanship. I’m sure someone just scanned some handwritten music and made it fit to some premade staves. I’m pretty sure some notes are missing, too.
Thank goodness we have music engraving software and printers in the real world. I don’t know how Sweetie Belle does it. Maybe having huge eyes makes it easier to read their music.
>"Core MY LITTLE PONY revenues increased but were, however, more than offset by lower net revenues from the MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS products."
EqG shitting everything up, as usual.
Yeah, it just kinda seems like nonsense, and I'm pretty sure it's in 19/32 or some other weird fucking time signature
I tried transcribing it before and I gave up after four measures
Don't underestimate the inventiveness of the earthpone
>Implying ponies don't poop crystals like Eldar
Ponies are immaculately clean in every which way, I will not substitute any other answer. Even the sweaty stink they work up in day to day labor would be pleasantly musky and not offensively odorous.
what a relief to no longer be staring at that piece of shit
The lists are generated by having each Anons go though a sorter, which takes a lot of time now that we have 5 seasons, until they get a list like pic related. Then I copy and paste it into excel and run a macro that takes the number of the bottom place's rank and subtracts each episode's rank from it to get the points.
For example, in this list Spike at your Service is last at 120th. Taking that 120 and subtracting Lesson Zero's 1st place gives it 119 ranking points. Then just follow that logic down the line for every list. At the end I added across for each episode for the total ranking points.
post some of your favorite background ponies
There are many cute horses about
and she is a cute zebra
I thought it was funny how ridiculously happy all the background ponies are when the main six aren't around to ruin their days
Lets say Anons A, B, and C all ranked Lesson Zero 1st, 20th, and 78th respectively for example.
As long as all of them have their last place episode at 120th, ties can make that number lower, then it'll be the sum of 120 minus 1, 120 minus 20, and 120 minus 78 for that episode's ranking points. The sum of those three differences add up to the total ranking points for that episode. So that ranking calculation I explained in the last post is done across every episode in a singular list based on what number last place is in that list, and then I add the ranking points for one episode across all of the lists for an episode's total individual ranking point amount.
Do you think ponies are aware that their butts are huge?
i also enjoy the background ponies
i don't know why
i guess it's because you can imagine their ordinary pony lives and doing cute things every day and they don't say much
Well ponyville has always had the river system running through it, so its not a horrendous stretch to imagine that it gets a bit crazy somewhere near town.
I liked that we got a bit of how the background ponies pony on their own time when the town isn't being beset by main six induced disasters
Too Many Pinkie Pies In Bed
Background ponies are best ponies, I love them to pieces
spike at your service in bed
they always seem like they are up to cute shenanigans
and they travel A LOT
also i like this new one
Thats what I love most about them
there is always something going on in the background, little touches and continuing gags to catch and notice, recurring groups of friends that show up here and there and pony together, etc
Its fun to observe who ponys who and in what severity and frequency
games ponies play in bed
apple family reunion in bed
bats! in bed
flight to the finish in bed
for whom the sweetie belle toils in bed
appleoosa's most wanted in bed
party pooped in bed
three's a crowd in bed
a dog and pony show in bed
and the one that describes my sex life
party of one in bed
Meanwhile, Twilight's TRYING to ignore all the sounds of gay ass-fucking going on in her castle.
>Meanwhile, Twilight's TRYING to ignore all the sounds of gay ass-fucking going on in her castle.
Shining Armor casted an anti-noise spell to keep sound from leaving the bubble, faggot.
N-not that I would know about the sound bubble, a friend told me about it that's all.
>you can literally hear the sound of Shining Armor's balls hitting against Spike's butt from across the Castle
>pat pat pat pat
>he's so paranoid about liking dicks he fetishizes ''not gay'' gay sex
>Shining Armor casted an anti-noise spell to keep sound from leaving the bubble
That's just what he tells Spike.
We all know that damn bubble doesn't stop shit.
Just ask Twilight!
>"Mr. White? Remember how you said not to do the thing with the red phosphorus?"
Especially if it's on a hot summer day
Pony wants to play your favorite video game
and do it poorly on purpose.
she prefers to pretend to be a cat
>should be going to bed
>instead I'm dicking around with DFTs applied to the seasons
I think it's pretty obvious at which point the season opener aired.
The second large peak on the posts per thread scale was the scruffening 2.0 where /mlp/ decided to panic in MLPG.
I think I'll change the layout of these, with a whole month instead of only 2 weeks. Also wanna merge the per threads into per days to remove the oscillating of night- and day-threads, but I need to come up with a good idea how to check the actual amount per 24 hours. right now I just assign the thread to whatever day it ended on since the day scale is not very precise in these ones anyway.
>tfw you work with fourier transforms every day
>but you never really understood it and are too lazy to read up on it
is there a way to calculate the perfect filly trap, like one that will deliver me an endless supply of fillies into the hamper beneath if i build it correctly and rig it up with the proper bait
>Are you a dirty ME or something
I'm a theoretician. My Prof would probably beat me if I told him that I do not know it, but it's in the part of the code I treat as blackbox and do not have to work on.
I'm about to head off to beb, but I'll make sure to post anything interesting tomorrow
>Also I could give you the data for the other 4 past surveys too if you want that.
I'd be great if you could post them tomorrow
I'm actually reading up on it right now. Good
this little filly walks right up to you and just stares
i always default to celestia, but i'd like to imagine myself being dominated by a different mare this time
and i'd like to think about her continuing to hump me even after i've already cum and it hurts but she keeps going until i cum again and it's amazing
It was kind of difficult, but I was able to get this into a storytime-able format.
Do you think I should put it at the end of the comic storytime and make it a double feature this week? Or should I have it in it's own thread? It's a picture book about 40 pages or 18ish posts long.
>There's going to be lots of shitposting from people who hate the baby.
Good point. I'll try to have a thread up sooner rather than later then. That way I can link to it from the comic storytime later tonight for those that are interested.
Now I am kind of upset at myself that I didn't look it up earlier because it is actually fairly simple.
I like the contrast between Canterlot and Manehattan. Canterlot is home to the rich, higher class ponies, while Manehattan ponies are more of the working class.
I like how the locations in the show are distinct from each other.
Filly should remember to chew it first.
it's where celestia segregated the filthy earthies
Starting My Little Pony: Good Night, Baby Flurry Heart storytime here:
the kind pones eat
New Filly already has a statue?
>I'm getting a bit sick thinking about how long that might of taken
Long. I've seen that artist stream before, and she is not one of the super fast artists.
Her stuff is great though
>tfw have the patience for this
>tfw beautiful parodies, meaningful pieces, and art that pushes the limits when it comes to pony art easily topping double digits in hours of effort gets fucking dick in terms of views
>tfw just spending an hour drawing a fucking butt getting fucked brings in the views
At least I feel good about pushing it from time to time but it's not like I'm invincible to the soul crushing reality of what sells.
it would ruin my life if anyone even suspected i was a brony
that is by far the ugliest shirt i have ever seen
why not wear a subtle, stylish brony shirt
Sex and and or anything that is sexy just gets more attention. Anything beautiful really has to be pretty top notch to get noticed. I think one way to avoid that crushing,(understandably so) feeling is to take each piece as an opportunity to see what mistakes you can avoid making a second time around and what you can improve upon.
If it's just for approval or views then, that almost always leads to soul crushing disappointment. Validation is nice, but if you can at least placate yourself a bit, then i'd call that a victory.
I know it's a very tired phrase, but; it should be a labor of love, not a labor of how much attention one can get.
what a villain
I just read through, it, I thought it was a nice story.
Obviously very simple and not much too it, but it was a pretty nice children's book and the illustrations were pretty.
8 or 9/10
I will never be put in that position again
