612 - Spice Up Your Life
Written by Michael Vogel
Friendship is Magic #44 is due out this Wednesday (Jul. 20).
Going back to as regular a week as any can be said to be for her, what kinds of tasks does Twilight Sparkle have mapped out? Another pass through the library? Does the library in the castle serve all Ponyville like Golden Oaks did? It's a big of a walk comparatively, but she'd probably be no less eager to help a prospective reader. Some dignitaries have come by on occasion but it's still not the hub for that sort of political activity. Ideally she'd throw more open parties like for Hearth's Warming, but it's some work getting everything decorated and she does like some quiet, too.
Well, she's got whatever's necessary on a list, for sure.

The intro is finished!
I'm as excited as changeling right now.
Marker is a stone cold thug.
I heard one time she booped a pony just to watch it scrunch.
>You drew me doing WHAT to a horse?
Riding a horse. Clean the human out of your earholes.
So why are they all dressed up for cold weather, anyway?
They're going spelunking into your mums icy vagina.
I fucking hate you all
Sorry we were interrupting your stimulating conversation.
The gif? It's unrelated. I just wanted something silly.
Do you dare enter their magic realm?
Since most of you guys don't leave this general I just thought you should know it's her birthday.
Oh fuck, why did you have to remind me. That poor mother.
>It's a changeling episode
she went past a marked out of order sign because she did not want to waste time on an alternate route
all the other stuff like letting her and not having stopped the machinery is still fucked up but goddamn lady
I don't what you guys are talking about but I'm remembering that webm where the lady reaches the top of an escalator. The floor gives it beneath her and she barely had enough time to hand her kid to passerby before the machinery below ate her up.
It was broken? I swear I remember her reaching the top of a working one. That one webm with the retard in a rascal who rams repeatedly into the elevator door because he missed it and ends up falling in is pretty funny, though.
Fucking... gay horses.
>it has a super adorable, cutesy voice.
>sounds like this
i hope a giant dick falls from the sky an slam dunks into your butthole
It was this one for me. People were having so much fun I decided to see what it was about.
There's a rather big difference between unwarranted accusations of an unknown stranger and what's literally a creature whose sole sustenance is love and that almost took over the entirety of Canterlot.
And this one was what caused my friend to start watching.
It's a little girls cartoon show, I'm sure they're both male and female.
I'M GONNA BEAT THIS PONY IF YOU DON'T POST MORE OF HER
I think it would be more amusing if we can't tell their gender. The drones could be both and just both be infertile.
Plus it would mean it's less weird when they take the form of female ponies. It can be handwaved they're female changelings.
I kind of like that fan art has preserved Sunset's superior equine form, and that said superior equine form still shows up on merchandise.
It's a byproduct of her actual silliness, funnily enough.
Yes, Applejack knows all the ins and outs of it.
Hey guys, they're having a stealth pony thread on /co/ and I told them we're a monument to all their sins.
I think I missed him since I see some posts referencing him have been deleted.
Oh well. Anyway I told them if they needed me I was gonna be over here calling Starlight Glimmer a shit.
Starlight Glimmer a shit.
Let it never be said I don't keep my promises.
Huh, okay. That sounds nice
Glimmy a cute.
She should sing more
I'm more of a Shimmer man personally.
I actually don't hate Glimmer that much, I just love conflict.
Hope for the season finale. The Christmas in July episode was awesome.
The most retarded conflict in this board.
You have literally two characters who have never met, never mind the fact they're from two different series.
It really boils down to some delusional and butthurt shimmerfags.
I love them both, which now that I think about it sort of makes me a huge weirdo here.
See, this is what I'm talking about. Fucking MLPG always gets up in arms about this stupid shit and constantly flings shit in either direction for reasons I can't fathom. I just like both of them.
which one do you think is going to become a princess first
MLPG has thrived on conflict on day one of its birth friend.
It's just how we do things, not with soft pats on the back and gentle commentary, but fists in the face and jovial laughter in the back of the police van as we become best friends.
I meant between Shimmer and Glimmer but I guess in retrospect my post is pretty misleading
Listen familia I ain't saying it's contained to a single thread. It's this whole board. I think both sides of this retarded """"war""""" are autistic as fuck.
But it's undeniable that it's the salty shimmerfags that started this whole bullshit. There's no reason for them to even be angry at Glimmer since, as I said, both characters don't even know each other and they aren't even from the same series.
The whole thing stems from Shimmerfaggots who think their waifu was "robbed" from a position their waifu never really had a claim to. Any retard who seriously thought sunset was ever on the table to be on the show isn't very bright and those fuckers took their frustration on Starlight starting this whole shitfest. You don' see that level of retardation from Trixie or Moondancer fans, two characters who are part of FiM and have much more legitimacy to be a main characters than one who isn't even part of the FiM crew or has ever been mentioned on FiM.
We're all huge weirdo nerds anon. No shame in that.
I suppose it's something of a pride thing. I mean personally I've waited for years to see if the Elements of Harmony would add a proverbial Seventh Ranger. When Sunset was made such a figure in Equestria Girls, I was rather excited about it, and I can only imagine others were as well. For me, it's hard to see Glimmer as anything but a pretender to the role.
There's also the fact that I always thought Glimmer worked better as an antagonist, her ideology being an interesting element to her character. I feel like redeeming Sunset gave her character more depth, whereas Starlight's redemption took away from her character. I'd much preferred to see her kicking around as a bad guy for a little longer.
But that's just my opinion.
Yeah, but it's always been at least kind of fun. 2011 was a huge clusterfuck and it was good times. But there's just no enjoyment here. The instant one or the other is posted one half flips their shit and goes on the warpath.
See, like this. I don't give two shits about any of it. But people will take it seriously because of shit I don't care.
You seem to be taking it seriously yourself.
Can I suggest you just go about the weird method of ignoring shit you don't like?
I hear it tends to work from time to time. Hell, you can even read the hostile comments and just chuckle at them, it helps me.
SOME FOLKS ARE BORN, MADE TO WAVE THE FLAG
OOOO THEY'RE RED WHITE AND BLUE
How would Starlight be a pretender? Again Sunset is a 7th ranger in a different series. Glimmer's introduction as a 7th main member doesn't interfere with that and it doesn't make her a pretender since she is the 7th member of her respective series.
I suppose I am, but it does tend to get old after a while, you know? Maybe I just wanna talk about one horse or the other without someone throwing a hissy fit every once in a while. That would be nice. I've ignored and even munched some popcorn while watching past shitstorms but train wrecks sort of lose their appeal after a while.
Well, yeah, every waifufag in this board has their own brand of autism. No denying that. But I'm framing this in the context of waifu wars, lad.
In this context the "Shimmer vs Starlight" conflict just boils down to fagts being salty that their waifu isn't a main character on the show.
Wow, I really need to use a thesaurus or something.
>Shown to be more powerful than the rest of the cast barring the leader
>Doesn't show up in all the episodes
>Only seems to show up when the plot wants to focus on her
She's the Doggie Kruger and Yayoi Ulshade of MLP
Oh my god how have I never seen it
I just want to enjoy the horses
Sometimes the heart isn't bound by logic. And even though it's highly improbable, I always hoped Sunset might show up in the main series. If only for a special event. But as you say, they are in different series, and as such have different roles in said series.
Starlight is something of a seventh ranger in fim whereas Sunset has assumed the role of leader in eqg, leaving Scilight in the role of the seventh.
Still, it's fun to compare and contrast them. Especially with people who don't share my views.
We could merely argue the merits of Shim Sham vs Glim Glam without resorting to petty name calling. I'm always up for that.
Well Hiatuses tend to bring out the bored shitposters the most and MLPG is an easy target at times for causing storms.
Don't lose hope on the general, we are still a respectable bunch of jackasses. I for one like both Sunset and Starlight, they both have very nice arcs.
But storms do what storms do, and they fade away after a day.
>Don't lose hope on the general, we are still a respectable bunch of jackasses
Of course it is, otherwise I would've left ages ago. I guess all I can do is hope for the future.
I could but I should really sleep, I already should have been in bed about 3 hours ago. I'm just gonna drop another pony I think is super cute and hit the hay.
>Shimmerfags vs Glimmerfags
If you retards want a waifu war can you at least pick good characters to defend?
Now now, lets not get too hostile just yet.
Was there anything I typed that caused your response to be in such a manner?
I was simply talking to a fellow individual on this board in this general and apparently it provoked you.
I apologize but want to know what went wrong .
>I could but I should really sleep, I already should have been in bed about 3 hours ago.
Well maybe someday we can have a frank discussion about that anon and I hope you can join us for that. Pleasant dreams my friend.
Glad to see you guys getting along so well in the face of this catastrophe.
Where's Saine? And yes, you are his keeper.
/co/, the loving, understanding place that it is, kicked zootopia out completely, forcing them into trash.
Actually it's pretty comfy over there. A little faster than I'm used to, but pretty good otherwise.
You are trying to tack a wiafu on the neutral party here, friend. I am just a casual observer who is merely talking among the arguing masses trying to make sense of it all.
There is no need for hostility.
Complain about comics
Whine about stuff
A fucking janitor deleted a civilized comic thread where people were talking about a new book they were all excited for. Shit is crazy over there.
DID YOU NIGGERS NOT HEAR ME
I SAID DANCE WITH THE PONY
It's too early for dancing.
I'm not even in a standing mood right now, orange horse.
Just blue ones.
We did. Did you want to go back to it? Did you have something to contribute to the conversation?
This pony has a nice butt.
Stop posting pony butts.
The ponies don't like being sexualised.
> I feel like redeeming Sunset gave her character more depth, whereas Starlight's redemption took away from her character.
But that's literally the opposite of what happened. Sunset had no character before and she had no character after her redemption. If anything her doing a 180 on her past self was far more flimsy than what Glimmer went through.
Your opinions a shit.
Your love of pointless shitposting conflict a shit.
You in general, are a shit.
I agree with him in fact
Before the turn, Sunset was just generic alpha bitch with some magic powers, now you can tell she's struggling to become a leader and have the others accept her for what she is
Glimmer was waaaay more interesting and likeable as a villain, now that she's redeemed, her only personality trait seems to be ''apologizes a lot'' and ''was evil once'', and that's it
Why is morbi such a huge piece of shit
She doesn't get up til fucking mid day
Don't forget the most important part of her morning routine
lol at people who think rainbow dash masturbates, she is a pure kissless virgin
She just loves a good breakfast.
She also has a quick workout before breakfast to keep her tiny butt in tip top condition.
>try to open yoghurt
>the cover rips three times
I did not know a milk product could incite such blood curdling rage in me.
Does this look alright in an animation sense? I'm not going for smooth obviously, just "that looks right for a simple animation".
Two frames kind of worked, but I tested three frames and I think it looks decent and it's only slightly more work.
You're not wrong, there should be. Something like this.
So it definitely feels like the frame is missing, huh?
Ideally the intermediate frame is vague enough it could work for both, but that would probably be too obvious and look weird.
It's also the part where there is just 1 frame where the pon goes 1 pixel downs, gives it a really jagged feeling.
>Before the turn, Sunset was just generic alpha bitch with some magic powers, now you can tell she's struggling to become a leader and have the others accept her for what she is
>Implying EqG of all fucking things has this much literary worth
Must be nice living in a fantasy world where anything about EqG is good minus the 30 seconds of horse we got at the start of the first two.
