Welcome to Fillychan, where everything Filly, Funtasia, or both, is what it’s all about. Whether you’re having high expectations for the show, are interested in learning more about it, or are just a random bypasser, we wish you welcome.

It’s basically a serial thread at Ponychan, and not really its own forum or board. For those who are primarily experienced with 4chan or general forums, quick step introductions are at >>1017061, and other than that, you’re free to post here and try to talk about whatever you find fitting.

>Well, there's comparisons to other shows, I suppose. I'm liking Paw Patrol a lot now, but you can really see the dish shape of the eyes at times.
I have only in the past two months begun to give Nick Jr. a real shot. On the occasions where I've come across Paw Patrol, it felt like the show was as simple and one-trick-y as "Puppies saving the day", like a combination of TF Rescue Bots and Animal Planet's Too Cute. I'm also not a fan of web videos of puppies, which I've seen that Paw Patrol's puppies have tried to behave like, so if I were to watch a whole episode, I'd need to force myself to watch it.

But who knows? Lalaloopsy has sailed up as my Cartoon Of The Year (COTY?) of 2015, and Zack & Quack has become something I can watch without minding it if I come across it.

>And it might be interesting to list off the other characters with eyebrow scars like Will. There's one kid in Monster Buster Club, Jefferson from Max Steel, and I think it started with Gnomeo in Gnomeo and Juliet.
Since I couldn't remember any eyebrow-scarred cartoon characters in a hurry, I looked through Netflix Nordic's selection of ~130 cartoons and animated movies. After 20 minutes of looking, the amount of recurring characters in these 130 choices with scarred eyebrows were... zero. Nill. Nothing. My cartoon knowledge has really pulled the short stick on this one. Not even those I had always thought has had scars (Ricco from Madagascar, or either one of the three villains in Winx Club), were fooling me with cheek scars or disputable eye make-up.

>It's mustering up the sense of what to put on my cv, and the courage to actually apply. I've only tried one so far, I've got another position I wouldn't mind getting, but... yeah, mostly a question of not knowing what to do when and where.
Stuff the doctorate onto the CV, and arguably also how long you've been in uni. I do often misjudge how other people think, but "College: 8 years" sounds more impressive to me than "College: 3 years". I've also never truly been on the job search market, but I'd say one should/could apply to jobs as if they were mail-in lottery competitions without minimum stakes. I recall you completed your pegasus(?) novel last November, so has there been enough happiness and something resembling an income in order to continue with it?

>Also, I've just tried tweaking Edward a bit, and if I'm gonna fix all the errors on him, it's going to be a fresh model. On the bright side, I can use what I have as a baseline, and the points can snap to the surface so at least it wouldn't be entirely from scratch.
I've always been a make-do kind of guy, and have been puzzled when, say, Skundi, has been perfectionist-ical in almost anything they do. You did (from what I can remember) impress me with the second image of the completed Edward gargoyle model. But since it sounds like the baseline has a surface, then you can just snap the new and slightly edited body-part surfaces onto the baseline, like snapping the cover onto a mobile phone's back?

Well then.
http://www.fillywiki.com/wiki/Main_Page

Please do not think that is anywhere close to the final intended functionality and look. It still uses the default skin because I haven't really gotten around to skinning yet and there are a LOT of extensions on my list left to install.

Earlier today, there was a dumb error that prevented the creation of new pages which resulted from a bad CloudFlare setting. The core functionality seems pretty stable now, but don't hesitate to yell at me if you find any similar errors or anything else that seems wrong. Feel free to mess around with the site as much as you'd like.

The SMTP config didn't want to cooperate fully, so it uses a gmail address for automated confirmation emails right now, that is intended to be a temporary fix (but would still work very well for a small wiki).

Anyway, over the next few days I should hopefully be able to add some nice functionality to it.

>>1835785
>On top of all these "Wikia is dumb" opinions/discoveries on various wikis, it seems indirectly to me that Wikia does not approve much of a wikia linking to an off-Wikia wiki.
Indeed. After all, it's competition. But I think they really only watch the large wikis closely, I think you can get away with more on the smaller ones.

>They needed perhaps a stress test, for some reason?
Well, that's not at all the proper way to get one.

>>1836041
>But could they at that point have thought that it'd be as a build-up to an Early 2015 release...? It could explain why it hasn't come to fruition yet...
At the time, they thought it was going to be released Autumn 2015. Check the bottom pic in http://www.funtasiadaily.com/2014/10/october-video-followup.html

>You can unfortunately attribute ~40 of the 101 FuD hits to me, as I kept looking at the story's front page to see if there were any new comments to the story as a whole, and in a few cases as a jumping stone to get to your FiMFiction blog.
Doesn't Fimfiction have a unique hits filter? That kinda feels like a necessary feature in any referral traffic counter, so it's a bit crappy if it doesn't.

>>1837130
>I've always been a make-do kind of guy, and have been puzzled when, say, Skundi, has been perfectionist-ical in almost anything they do.
It's quite bad for a programmer to be a make-do kind of guy, because you then quickly become a "do-over" kind of guy when everything repeatedly breaks.

Lynn does not strike me as a Fluttershy-type after all, given the knowledge we've amassed since the ages ago where I last saw that picture being posted. The other four were given accurate ponies, but probably the biggest time capsule in the image was the "Applejack is a background pony" joke in it.

Noted! There is however a small problem that prevented me from seeing the front page as it was meant to be. It's been struck by bot-spammers up the wazoo. And apparently not just one this time. In addition to the front page at the time of writing being two links to a pretty dubious furniture seller (Yes, I clicked on them), the front page's history log [www.fillywiki.com] has about 8 or so spammers clogging up the log comments.

I'll let you handle the situation's seriousness level this time, but giving some protection against random edits to the front page seems necessary to me.

>Well, that's not at all the proper way to get one.
So then, how does one get a proper stress test? Even to me does it sound pretty off to have a stress test on days where nothing is going on.

>At the time, they thought it was going to be released Autumn 2015. Check the bottom pic in (FuD article)
...aah. I had forgot all about that picture, somehow.

>Doesn't Fimfiction have a unique hits filter? That kinda feels like a necessary feature in any referral traffic counter, so it's a bit crappy if it doesn't.
Who knows if they have a unique-hit filter or not? I never really saw any proof for or against it back when I was reading FiMFiction stories (late 2012, early 2013?).

>It's quite bad for a programmer to be a make-do kind of guy, because you then quickly become a "do-over" kind of guy when everything repeatedly breaks.
Okay, you're right on that. The programming business is one business where every detail has to be perfect-perfect.

Alright. I'll probably make test pages about suspiciously Filly-like magical elephants.

I find their horse figures mildly entertaining, but I don't think it's the show for me... Still, nice to know you're still finding stuff to watch!

Lately I've been find all these mid-season breaks are a tad confusing, heh... Not entirely sure why they're a thing, maybe because auto-recording things tend to record the whole series, so going straight from one to another is more likely to keep people watching but means a "mid-season break" is needed to catch up on making the series? They seem to be getting more common...

Account made. The current newsfeed is... Odd, though, so I'll hold off playing around with coding for a bit. It should all work with the same coding language as Wikia, right?

>Doesn't Fimfiction have a unique hits filter? That kinda feels like a necessary feature in any referral traffic counter, so it's a bit crappy if it doesn't.
You'd hope so! It is odd when things don't do that. Actually, I don't think Wikia does that, so there's one obvious thing to improve...

Wouldn't doing the move earlier still allow for the "stress test" when the pilot aired?

Whoops, I knew there was something important I forgot! I installed an anti-spam filter earlier today, and it seems to be working so far - 6 spambots banned by it already.

I got very delighted after coming up with that one.

>Account made. The current newsfeed is... Odd, though, so I'll hold off playing around with coding for a bit. It should all work with the same coding language as Wikia, right?
Yep, it does not look nice at all currently - but I just threw something up really quickly to show that the functionality exists. We should be able to put it in a nice table or something.

And yeah, the wiki markup (the coding on the pages themselves) should be exactly the same as wikia's. Also, I gave your account admin access.

>EinFestFürLoki.jpg
One catch with watching as many preschool cartoons as I do, is that I've grown very tired of all the surprise-party plots, of which yet another one features in this comic. So since the plot tells itself, I will instead note that Loki is looking emptily into the air when he's speaking, somewhat Stewie Wonder-like (Loki is blind headcanonical?). And the 6th image's speech bubbles are reversed, meaning that Kirina is hosting a party and Loki is rejecting himself, with the "Oh ..." afterwards becoming an odd "Uh, wait, what did I just say? No use in denying that then!".

>Oh! And eps are on YouTube! Some of the movement by the characters looks a little too swift, but the visuals otherwise look great! That's nice.
Okay, so after watching almost all of episode 7 (The only full ep on Inivizimals' official YouTube channel), I found two complaints that for the most part prevented me from getting properly in touch with the show's actual features and plot. The first two-thirds were awkward to watch due to the one-episode plot (I skipped a minute around the 11-minute mark), and while Wii Fit U did sell me on the concept of British English dubs, I found the voices of both the trio's girl and the blonde dude, and the lead professor to have very unfitting accents or voices (The girl and professor have strong Spanish accents, and the teenage dude sounds like he's 40).

Perhaps I could get used to it, perhaps I won't, or perhaps another dub (Scandinavian? American/Canadian English?) will be the rescue float.

>Well, they wouldn't, but maybe we could do it subtly... Somehow.
I'm currently imagining using the "External link" function to edit in Filly True-Wiki links into inconspicuous sentences in a few articles, as if they were a source for the articles' info.

>That sounds pretty extreme... Obviously we'd all like it to be, but I agree with previous sentiments that time enjoyed is not time wasted, so even if the show's not what I hope I intend to look back on this thread/etc fondly.
I've really enjoyed the time as a Filly fan, but this is the only fandom I really have left that I would ever desire to join. Should FF or Filly flop for me, I've got nothing left. Very, very few reasons left to even use internet browsers for anything. 6 hours of my daily life, which I already have enough problems filling up, would become void of events.

>Haha, really? That's pretty good.
Yep. While we don't discuss huge conspiracies to take over the world, we do often share pieces of info that would either be superfluous on other sites (MIPTV/WorldScreen unconcrete updates), or that is of a nature that cannot be discussed in public (High-ranking Filly peoples), in addition to the group's intended purpose of assisting with making FuD articles.

>Quite a neat little display piece.
Thanks! I was on a shopping spree after having bought a set of PC speakers at a friendly-minded electronics store (Siba, which Skundi probably knows about) at the other side of the fairly small shopping centre.

>The toys make me smile because they're cute little dogs doing dangerous jobs, apparently. I might look into it sometime.
It's pretty much exactly how you've described it. The rescue crew occasionally also do community services, such as aiding with circuses or mass-picnics. There are also humans in the rescue crew, mostly for guiding the dogs and for area surveillors.

I can't remember if you still have Sky or not, but it should be moderately easy to catch it on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. program blocks, presumably in the daytime or in the early morning. If you have a subscription that would probably be expensive even by Norwegian means, Paw Patrol should be a regular inventory on the dedicated Nick Jr. channel.

>I find their horse figures mildly entertaining, but I don't think it's the show for me... Still, nice to know you're still finding stuff to watch!
The horses only actually appeared in one DVD movie. But what could I say... the plots in the show can either be cliché-repeating or cliché-defeating. The latter category includes one episode where the resident mechanic Ace Fender Bender was to fix a grammophone before Jewel Sparkle (fancy princess-lifestyle girl)'s ballet performance. After Ace has absolutely no clue what any of the grammophone parts are called ("Spinning-thing" and "Stick-thing" were among his terms), he borrows parts from every mechanic object that the Main 8 or 9 own and use, but he keeps failing, and with 2 minutes to go, he made the grammophone toast some bread in his last attempt.

With seconds to go, it is discovered that Ace made a baker's kitchen toaster play music, and everyone praise Ace for his once-again spectacular mechanical feats, and he assures them that he can always fix things in his own way.

Had there been a Lalaloopsy fandom that didn't mandate the involved parties to be parents or preschool kids, then it would be a small backup alternative to Filly.

>Lately I've been find all these mid-season breaks are a tad confusing, heh...
They have annoyed me since 2013. The problems I had with figuring out the broadcasts of Sofia the First S1's first half in the summer of 2013 pretty much threw me off the show, and it has never fully recovered from that ever since.

>Ah well. It's done now.
Indeed. And I got to witness it. It wouldn't have been anything I'd even take note of if I hadn't been checking Fillychan at that exact moment in time.

A "Movies & TV" package at $10 would indicate a very normal DVD or pretty cheap Blu-Ray, but a 400 gram weight would indicate some sort of collector's edition. I'll take a very long Hail Mary shot here and guess it's a World of Warcraft behind-the-scenes official documentary that originally followed a Blizzard game's collector's edition?

>I think it's mostly because of Lynn's bad self-confidence as described in the first bio we found.
Ah, there was that bio. While the later show trailers has made it clear that she has some serious self-confidence problems (Running in the forest scared), I think it's become clear by now that she's not very shy.

It looks much better now, thankfully. I am currently planning to sit on the fence (in regards to active tests of the wiki with edits and profiles and such) for a few days while awaiting more features, it could be anywhere between two days and a week before I decide to join in.

I thank goodness that it was as easy as installing a spam filter. I was fearing we'd have to instate severe edit restrictions for unregistered visitors.

>Probably still trying to get even more syndication for it...
I grew up reading Wikipedia media articles in the late 00's, so I only really know of syndication as a US-only thing. But BRB had early luck finding international distributions for the show's premiere movies in 2013-14, so looking for more channels and countries sounds feasible, even if I believe that they've begun to exhaust the amount of countries left that would be willing to pick it up.

Oh, weird. Then again, we've already talked about the odd lack of high-quality dubbing... I finished the Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright game last night, and one thing that bugged me throughout is the bad dubbing for the Phoenix Wright side. The Layton lot (main characters and new supporting ones) were all brilliant but nearly every one of the Wright-plot ones were bad. Pretty odd considering that the teams clearly worked closely enough together to make a coherent game!

(Doesn't help that the English translation of the first Phoenix Wright game decided to claim that the obviously-Japan area they live in is actually the US, which has got increasingly weird, as exaggerated by this comic: http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=120913 )

Perhaps you need more creative hobbies? I like your writing, but there's lots more and it all tends to be pretty time-consuming. Knitting's one that's gaining more nerd interest lately, and I quite like the HAMA bead things (that you iron flat, you can use them to make pixel art pretty well).

In my mind it'll take a bit of faffing just to get used to the new site, so probably a similar time frame for me before I go test that stuff works. Hopefully it'll all go smoothly when I try though!

>But BRB had early luck finding international distributions for the show's premiere movies in 2013-14, so looking for more channels and countries sounds feasible, even if I believe that they've begun to exhaust the amount of countries left that would be willing to pick it up.
You'd think it'd be more profitable to screen it early and hope that other countries see the success and buy it later rather than just delaying it... Maybe that's a gamble they avoid though, in case it isn't a hit.

>But since it sounds like the baseline has a surface, then you can just snap the new and slightly edited body-part surfaces onto the baseline, like snapping the cover onto a mobile phone's back?

Yup, that's it in a nutshell. I think I've done it on smaller scale before, for do-overs, too. It's called retopologising, basically you have the same volumes and shapes but different edgeflow. Think of it as the difference between an L-shaped block in Tetris and straight block that's bent in the middle.

On a related note, made a minor tweak to the pony model that might be relevant to Filly: ponies don't have knees, Fillys don't have heels. I couldn't see the knee joint in a profile reference for ponies, which ended up carrying over. But when I redid it, I made the lower part just follow the leg, instead of being extruded at an angle. Again, normally feet look like an L-shaped Tetris block, but here they're just straight extensions. Going by the pictures posted here, I noticed Fillys standing on two legs didn't have very pronounced heels. The legs look pretty straight in that pose, no little bony protrusions like ponies have. Maybe the models reflect that, too?

The eyelids are a pain, still, and it got to the point of wanting to quit the whole endeavour yesterday, it's so frustrating. I dunno, maybe I'll just cheat and use shapekeys again. I want to finish the pony before redoing Edward, for sure.

>>The toys make me smile because they're cute little dogs doing dangerous jobs, apparently. I might look into it sometime.
>It's pretty much exactly how you've described it. The rescue crew occasionally also do community services, such as aiding with circuses or mass-picnics. There are also humans in the rescue crew, mostly for guiding the dogs and for area surveillors.

It's kind of like Thunderbirds, but for small children. The pups getting into their vehicles is very obvious stock footage, and the whole briefing every time can be a bit annoying. The whole thing is a lot more child-oriented than most of my usual fare, but... (warning: incoming ramble)

The pups do all have distinct personalities and some neat catchphrases. They're also mostly boys, and good-hearted without coming off as perfect Gary Stus, which in and of itself gets my stamp of approval. It's got fairly good morals without being preachy. Can't comment on how educational it is, but the aforementioned briefing all the time does at least explain what the problems are and how they plan on solving it, which I can only assume is useful for small children who haven't learned planning yet.

It also has its own adult fandom. Seems to be a trend.

Episodes can be found here: http://www.nickjr.com/kids-videos/paw-patrol-kids-videos.html

But, again, it is very kiddish in nature. If you can get past that, it's pretty good.

Incidentally, the trash pup Rocky is an undefined mixed-breed with a fear of water. Said fear of water makes him aversive to taking baths.

They literally have the trash truck be driven by a dirty bastard. Well played, Nick Jr., well played.

>Ah, there was that bio. While the later show trailers has made it clear that she has some serious self-confidence problems (Running in the forest scared), I think it's become clear by now that she's not very shy.
She does speak with a fair amount of volume in the first trailer, and she smiles just as heartily as the rest of them. So more than likely, it's a fear of failure, not any social pressure. Also, we still haven't seen any Witchy Fillies in the trailers besides her, have we? Loneliness might come into play there.

The link to what I watched, in English and everything, was this [www.youtube.com].

>Oh, weird. Then again, we've already talked about the odd lack of high-quality dubbing...
I do somewhat remember talking about it, but I've forgot everything we had concluded with.
>I finished the Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright game last night, and one thing that bugged me throughout is the bad dubbing for the Phoenix Wright side. The Layton lot (main characters and new supporting ones) were all brilliant but nearly every one of the Wright-plot ones were bad. Pretty odd considering that the teams clearly worked closely enough together to make a coherent game!
It's pretty rare that I am bugged by a bad dub. The Norwegian dub of Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time was unplayable due to the super-nasal voice it gave the Fongoids (a race of very tech-shy peace-seeking creatures). It could also be a part of the reason why I can't take Nickelodeon teen sitcoms seriously, as the same set of ~10 voices are repeated throughout about 6 shows. Granted, most of these sitcoms had the same actors in the US main roles anyway.

>(Doesn't help that the English translation of the first Phoenix Wright game decided to claim that the obviously-Japan area they live in is actually the US, which has got increasingly weird, as exaggerated by this comic: [Awkward Zombie])
A fun (but very short) read. I remember hearing stories about the Phoenix Wright translation crew finding themselves in increasing problems, such as having to rewrite a Japanese WWII pilot veteran into an American WWII pilot veteran.

>Perhaps you need more creative hobbies? I like your writing, but there's lots more and it all tends to be pretty time-consuming. Knitting's one that's gaining more nerd interest lately, and I quite like the HAMA bead things (that you iron flat, you can use them to make pixel art pretty well).
I have serious problems with patience and fatigue that prevents me from doing most things that lasts more than about 1 1/2 hours, and I have personal and pretty obscure reasons for not getting into knitting. But I feel that I cannot say no to all of your suggestions (Would be pretty rude on my part), and had to think overnight about what more to say to your suggestions: I do remember the HAMA beads clearly, and could be a way to spend an hour or so, but I can't remember coming across bead plates(?) that allowed for finished beads of more than about 100x100 dots, which'd limit pixel art possibilities.

I know practically nothing about Southern European cartoon companies, but I know that American cartoons bank everything on making it big in the US as a beginning, and only shopping it to Europe between six and twelve months later, and that's assuming that the cartoon doesn't flop. My experiences with BRB may be the very first time I've come across cartoons that give equal premiere priority to all Western (and Asian!) markets.

Since I actually did watch an 11-minute episode of it yesterday daytime, I can say that it was a human, in singular, in the crew. He seems to around age 15, and while he rarely actually does any rescue manouvres, he does give most of the commands that the pups follow, both before and in the midst of it, and does take note when something odd is going on. The actual pups are very active, as in both being happy, task-focused, and easy to distress when something strange is going on.

I can also go good for that Raichu's link to the US Nick Jr. site works from a Norwegian location.

Indeed she is the sole confirmed Witchy I've seen in the trailers. A fear of failure adds up with what I've seen in the trailers, although it would be a slight difference from the toys, where she's virtually given up on achieving magic skills.

>I think I've done it on smaller scale before, for do-overs, too. It's called retopologising, basically you have the same volumes and shapes but different edgeflow. Think of it as the difference between an L-shaped block in Tetris and straight block that's bent in the middle.
Makes partial sense. I can at least imagine the block difference pretty well!

>On a related note, made a minor tweak to the pony model that might be relevant to Filly: ponies don't have knees, Fillys don't have heels. I couldn't see the knee joint in a profile reference for ponies, which ended up carrying over. (...). Going by the pictures posted here, I noticed Fillys standing on two legs didn't have very pronounced heels. The legs look pretty straight in that pose, no little bony protrusions like ponies have. Maybe the models reflect that, too?
Looking at my images of Fillys standing on both two and four, I notice that their heel is near-nonexistent and can only be seen when looking for very small curves. Moreover, the tiny heels I did find, seemed to be bent the other way.
<An unusually visible case of it should be in this picture.
His upper body isn't a good reference due to some Paint edits I did, but the lowest set of purple lines should show a small bending around his fetlock area.

I can imagine that the briefings can get fairly repetitive after a while, even after having watched one ep (Pups Save A Ghost, I think it was?).

>But, again, it is very kiddish in nature. If you can get past that, it's pretty good.
I have gone as deeply into American preschool cartoons as seemingly very few men (or women) has ever ventured before, and moreover have gotten so used to them that most grown-up fiction, and increasingly some non-fiction genres, are frustrating me with their lack of happiness and respect between people.

Wow. If the pup had been older than a pup, then it'd be a full-blown Wu-Tang Clan reference (Hint: Ol' Dirty Bastard). But even without it, it goes one step above Lalaloopsy's references to Flashdance and spaghetti trees.

They do, but you can only really see it in how they move.

That's what that main hind leg joint is. If you mean clear toe joints (down by the hoof as equines effectively walk on tip-toes), then they are there (you can see the hooves tilt as they walk), though the pudginess of the area means they might be simplified.

>>I did not watch nearly so much. I only found... The French one, I think...
>The link to what I watched, in English and everything, was this .
Skipping through, the pacing (and lack of monsters, and possibly that I'm not in a TV-watching mood right now) put me off, but the expressions bothered me more than the voices (at least that first character's face, which doesn't scrunch up as it should).

On the bright side, Funtasia's got excellent expressions from what we've seen, so it doesn't raise any concerns in regards to BRB's ability for me. I think I'll be more patient with magical horse characters than I am with human ones, too.

>It's pretty rare that I am bugged by a bad dub.
Bad voice acting can really get to me even if it's in the original language.

>I have serious problems with patience and fatigue that prevents me from doing most things that lasts more than about 1 1/2 hours, and I have personal and pretty obscure reasons for not getting into knitting.
Fair enough

I have little square boards the slot together. My biggest pixel art piece (the manticore boss from Castlevania) was bigger than the lot combined, so I had to half-iron the completed bits to free up boards as I went. Was pretty tricky though, I'd recommend starting small!

And it doesn't have to be knitting or beads, those were just examples. You say you lack patience, but I'd still call story telling a form of art and you can do that. Finishing projects can certainly be a pain, but it's about expressing your ideas.

We ended up in a discussion about making a wiki logo yesterday. Exo submitted this: http://www.fillychan.com/files/fil/orig/1428765351920777.png/Filly%20MediaWiki%20logo%202.png

I suggested this as a counter-proposal: https://i.imgur.com/HX5feBy.png

As you can see, mine is much smaller - it's 160x160 pixels which is the default MediaWiki logo size - although we can probably change this with skinning, we'd at least initially have to rescale the other one down quite a bit to use it.

What do you think?

One preschool cartoon with an adult fandom is one thing better with this world. At least if Raichu' is right on that it is a proper fandom.

>(...), but the expressions bothered me more than the voices (at least that first character's face, which doesn't scrunch up as it should).
There is perhaps a slight lack in interesting expression from what I saw. If the first character is who I think it is, then the plain professor is a very plain guy. Very formal, and very focused on keeping the Alliance secret.

>You say you lack patience, but I'd still call story telling a form of art and you can do that. Finishing projects can certainly be a pain, but it's about expressing your ideas.
That reminds me of something... I have never had a clear plan about Day 2-Earth in my fanfic plans. I've banking on somehow getting to Day 3-Earth with the plot moderately intact, in which very, very big stuff would happen.

So I decided to ramble around with nonsense starting points and write a bit more based on that, and suddenly I had Chapter 7 and all of Day 2-Earth completed, and probably ready for reading! This was partially solved by making the day very short: 4 1/2 pages, compared to Day 2-Funtasia's 12+ pages. Now the road finally lies ahead for Day 3.

Perhaps I really am a good writer after all! I had lost the faith I once had in myself, so let's see how much of it I can regain!

>Mm, maybe... Waiting for the show to start and analysing the wildlife range or such might be more me though.
I am still in a mode where I cannot truly believe in that this release date will be the real one, after having been fooled some five times about it by now. So it could take a really long while before you get a chance to analyse the "proper" show's wildlife, I will assume.

>That can be a bore... I know conflict helps drive stories, but sometimes it feels pretty forced. I think that bugs me more in kids' shows though...
Back in 2011 and 2012, bronies were shouting in all directions that having conflict was an absolute requirement to have a watchable show, and that that was what set FiM apart from all other girls' cartoons. Almost needless to say, I have found their statement(s) to be very wrong, and have found several non-conflict shows I would watch seven days a week.

>I'm not sure if I ever posted this in the thread, so here it goes: (Filly Happy Meal ad)
I clearly recall that Time Lord posted a better quality-upload of the ad some time ago, but I cannot reliably tell how long ago that was; anywhere between two and four months. They gave Rose some postive and interesting animating and traits, as I for starters rarely see her jump 1 1/2 times her body height through circus rings.

>Nope! (see attached pic)
They classified two Abra and Cadabra plushies as "Movies & TV"? Are the Chinese post system psychic (apart from their very obvious surveillance skills...), from the future, or unusually updated on toy franchises?

>While I welcome contributions of course, I don't think that necessarily has to be necessary.

The BRB MIPTV stand has struck its First Strike. Let's see what wonders there are in the huge background poster:

• Cedric is carrying a pile of books and smiling. On top of the pile is Battiwigs and Wranglum, who is stuck together with a... piece of gum?
• Will is riding a skateboard for whichever reason he may have. The skateboard isn't very long, and reminds me of those rounded surfboards that may or may not be tailored to smaller surferers.
• Rose is looking emotional, Lynn is smirky-but-happy, and Bella is also a bit emotional.
• ...where could the spider come into play?
• The top-right part is of course from the October 2014 trailer where they traverse the ledge. The middle of the picture has a very unidentifiable contraption, looking like a mix of a mechanical diving-suit, a mechanical ferry motor and a star observatory.
• 26 x 30''... they've said that length before, but if it's 30'' without ads, it'd be the greatest thing to happen European animation since Kika & Bob S1. Yes, it'd be better than Mouk, Geronimo Stilton and Moonzy.
• Bella is the closest one to an active portable mirror.

>I think gold/purple would be better than black, but I do like the simplicity of yours, plus creating it at the right size tends to be practical... Can either be revised?
On Skype, he demonstrated single-colour changes of his logo into blue and dark red. I probably shouldn't dismiss the chance of the easiness of a two-toned color change, but it doesn't sound quite as easy.

In addition, I made my attempt at 1000x1000 since I was thinking that MediaWiki had some sort of downscaling function, and it was preferrable to fit in a 1100px+ near-full-sized Filly logo and do most of the size reduction later on.

>Sounds good!
Indeed. Now I have no plot-based excuse not to begin on the last handful of chapters, but I'll most likely wait some days (or weeks?) still.

I've got the elements of it as different layers in the source file, so it pretty much is as long as you don't want an element to be two-tone itself.

Holy... wow. Okay, so we get some details, at least. I couldn't help but notice that none of the links are clickable, though. In fact, the only thing that links to is an image. Are we sure this is for real? There's also no new visual material aside from the owl, and Will is referred to by his toy name, not his show name. All the screenshots are taken from trailers, and they don't really match up with the synopsis that well.

Story-wise... okay, so we're getting an admittedly neat little horse pun in the first episode title, the Lynn episode is a lot less dramatic than expected, the Zack episode involves a missing student, and this universe has adolescent kids brewing crush potions in class. Well, at least a crush potion sounds more innocent than a love poison, there's that. And hey, at least that means they're aware of it at a young age. I like how it's looking.

I'm going to hold off on getting hyped for a little bit, though. It looks unfinished and/or fake at the moment. Carefully optimistic, though. Very carefully.

Welcome to the 12 o'clock news here, live from Fillychan, I'm Exohasard. The top stories today:

• The old Filly Funtasia banner site has updated with a PNG strongly resembling a more thorough layout. This includes titles and incomplete synopsises for the first four episodes.
• In the cupcake episode, now mostly called Liar, Liar, Prance on Fire, Rose and her friends are making serious attempts to counter the monster rumours they had created themselves.
• Lynn and Rose are dormmates according to Alone At Last, and Will's levitating cupcakes are used as the header image for this episode, after the cupcake episode's resolution.
• The blue trail in the April 2014 trailer was not the gem leaving a trail behind it, but a hyper-rare Blue Rainbow. Also, the episode is called The Missing Student, although given the October 2014 trailer, perhaps "The Missing Students" would have been more accurate?
• First love has been confirmed for a while, and The Crush involves a crush potion splashed on Cedric, giving him uncontrollable affections for Rose...
• The spellings of Wranglum, the Royal Magic Academy and Battiwigs have been confirmed. However, Bella and Will are listed by their full toy names of Isabella and Willow.
• An owl reminiscent of Hocus the Owl, Abra's pet, can be seen on top of the Characters banner.
• Nothing in the PNG is really clickable, leaving things like the top banner and the Outside the Academy button as mysteries for now.
• And the Story section is now a year and a half old and uses outdated spellings.
• The website will by the looks of it also be available in multiple languages.

And now over to our interviewee of the morning, RaichuWizDom.

>>1842868
>I couldn't help but notice that none of the links are clickable, though. In fact, the only thing that links to is an image. Are we sure this is for real?
The main guarantee we have for that this is real, is that the same URL has hosted a very plain banner with the Fillys, the slogan "Not a Horse... It's a Filly!" and some official Dracco logos, for the past 2 years. Both the poster-image and the URL has also been linked to on the MyFilly site, but for whatever reason they now opted only to link to the poster, moving the poster over to http://www.myfilly.com/fillyAd.html .

The new layout image was first discovered at 1 in the morning last night by Zejgar, so if it was an April Fools, it'd be extremely rude to leave it up for so long just to have people discover it, and if it was a ruse by a non-fan, he could be the first non-fan in history to have done that much research on Filly Funtasia.

>and Will is referred to by his toy name, not his show name.
If we go technical, statements from October 2013 were that Willow was his full name, but that he was rather embarrased by it and prefers to use Will as a nickname.

>All the screenshots are taken from trailers, and they don't really match up with the synopsis that well.
The The Crush image misses by a country mile, but the implications of the Alone At Last image are far too big to be dismissed. After all, it'd be an actual explanation as to how the first trailer had him prance with his cupcakes and lose them split-seconds later.

>the Lynn episode is a lot less dramatic than expected, the Zack episode involves a missing student
I am inclined to believe that "Lynn running in the forest" won't be the same episode as "Rose x Cedric" for several reasons, most of all that the former seemed to have Cedric and Rose focusing more on saving Lynn than on each other. However, it's a slight surprise that it's a missing student in singular. At first, Rose and Zack was missing, then all three were missing. An idea pop up in my head where The Missing Student was meant to be "Lynn running in the forest", but that would be an unfairly big miss for them to write.

>I'm going to hold off on getting hyped for a little bit, though. It looks unfinished and/or fake at the moment. Carefully optimistic, though. Very carefully.
I've chosen to go nearly all-in on believing this, in part as I was excited enough this, that for some minutes when I tried to sleep last night, it felt more like the night before Christmas Eve than the actual night before the Christmas Eve of 2014. In short, I am inclined to believe that the truthfulness rate is ~90%, and the remainder can be excused with avoiding spoilers or legacy formatting.

Yuppetiyup. I am not giving unusual focus on BRB's Twitter account, chatting about it to my eyes bleed on Skype, trying to figure out how to discuss it on the Twitter Filly group, or made FF-relevant edits to the Filly Wiki(a). Not at all.

(For people who really want to drive a sarcasm point home, I think Ponychan have the "sar" tag, which if it is used with square brackets and a slash like with the spoiler tag, should result in reverse italics.)

>The BRB MIPTV stand has struck its First Strike.
Often posters like that are mishmashes of random pics, so I think the MOST striking thing is that they've moved away from pink for it, making it actually look quite cool!

>In addition, I made my attempt at 1000x1000 since I was thinking that MediaWiki had some sort of downscaling function, and it was preferrable to fit in a 1100px+ near-full-sized Filly logo and do most of the size reduction later on.
Most things do have an auto-scale function, but sometimes that can result in text and images becoming confused.

>>1841656

I agree that it's odd, suspicious even, but if the site got hacked I'd expect something more extreme. I assume it's a temporary thing before they get it properly up, so some things (e.g. the screenshots used) might change.

>I'm going to hold off on getting hyped for a little bit, though. It looks unfinished and/or fake at the moment. Carefully optimistic, though. Very carefully.
Agreed. I do like the section borders though!

Haha, true.

>>the Lynn episode is a lot less dramatic than expected, the Zack episode involves a missing student
>I am inclined to believe that "Lynn running in the forest" won't be the same episode as "Rose x Cedric" for several reasons
I feel that this summary adds a lot of weight to most of the Lynn clips being "Lynn trying to get away from Rose" ones that lead to her rushing into the forest and, ultimately, coming to an understanding with Rose (cue hug, watched by frog).

The classroom-tornado could be part of the potions lab, and be the reason for how Cedric gets splashed and/or why Lynn forgets the potion.

>The Missing Student
The title confuses me since, from what we've seen, it seems a lot like Rose and Zack are walking through the forest when he falls down a hole and then they try to get Fabian to save them, implying that all 3 are out with no time for any 1 to be announced as "missing". I suppose it's possible that Zack is missing (looking for the crystal) and Rose and Fabian volunteer to look for him, with the falling-down-the-hole incident happening before they head back and that Zack standing at the head of the class happens towards the end.

>>I'm going to hold off on getting hyped for a little bit, though. It looks unfinished and/or fake at the moment. Carefully optimistic, though. Very carefully.
>I've chosen to go nearly all-in on believing this, in part as I was excited enough this, that for some minutes when I tried to sleep last night, it felt more like the night before Christmas Eve than the actual night before the Christmas Eve of 2014.

I think it's a fair expectation that most of this is true, but I can at least hold onto my hype for until the site's more than an image.

>>1842945
Heehee, it IS pretty cool.

Again, those lovely borders add weight to it for me: I don't think a prankster would take the time to make them, especially not a unique one for every section, and they look very in line with the style of the rest of the show.

Isn't the Rose next in the "Story" section new? It looks like an early rendering of http://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/37600000/Rose-Filly-Funtasia-filly-funtasia-37609983-500-410.png (unless it's the other way around and that one's the old rendering).

As a bonus detail, since the MyFilly link to the old website has moved to http://www.myfilly.com/fillyAd.html , it must have been a conscious effort to put the Filly Funtasia site into a lot more useful (but also slightly more difficult to access) purpose, and not some random bloke uploading the image on accident or as a Snowden-style leak.

>>1842971
>And we'd had all the ep summaries suggested apart from the love potion!
I don't think we've had "Rose driving Lynn crazy" suggested, although that plot is easy to tie in with one (or even two) plots of what we had decuded from the April 2014 trailer.

>so I think the MOST striking thing is that they've moved away from pink for it, making it actually look quite cool!
It is pretty gloomy and blue, which does make it look not girls'-show like (for good and bad). The only pink things left are the characters and the Filly logo, which now seems to be more for contrast than, as a main colour in any meaning of the term.

>It is just 1 image at the moment, not even any text.
I have been wondering if the reason to only have a PNG, is so that Zejgar and Skundi cannot go into the coding to find things far beyond what BRB would be comfortable to let out at this point...

>I do like that owl.
I have never seen that owl on a Filly site, especially not looking like that, so that's one more reason to believe that this could be the real deal.

>I agree that it's odd, suspicious even, but if the site got hacked I'd expect something more extreme. I assume it's a temporary thing before they get it properly up, so some things (e.g. the screenshots used) might change.
Pretty much. I do cast doubt over when it'll be a full site, though. The site lacks mentions of any dates, so in my perception, it looks as if the site was meant to be finished close to release. I do also speculate that it could be a never-before seen way to slow down the flow of info, as if this PNG was in fact the first step of BRB's stated little-by-little info reveals.

>Agreed. I do like the section borders though!
>Again, those lovely borders add weight to it for me: I don't think a prankster would take the time to make them, especially not a unique one for every section, and they look very in line with the style of the rest of the show.
They look well drawn. The leaves were a nice touch. (The Characters section has on its sides four leaves. Coincidence? *conspiracy theory mode*)

>I feel that this summary adds a lot of weight to most of the Lynn clips being "Lynn trying to get away from Rose" ones that lead to her rushing into the forest and, ultimately, coming to an understanding with Rose (cue hug, watched by frog).
Seems pretty guaranteed at the moment!

>The classroom-tornado could be part of the potions lab, and be the reason for how Cedric gets splashed and/or why Lynn forgets the potion.
I did have big problems connecting the tornado machine into Alone At Last, so I appreciate the theory.

>The title confuses me since, from what we've seen, it seems a lot like (...)
Uuuh, wasn't it so that Rose and Zack fell down at the same time? Both in the April and October 2014 trailers? But a singular student... could it be Fabian? He seems like the kind of guy to go missing for whichever reason. Me and Zejgar pondered about Lynn, but her in the forest is clearly lining up with Alone At Last.

>I think it's a fair expectation that most of this is true, but I can at least hold onto my hype for until the site's more than an image.
I got pretty hyped by the image alone, so I'm in party mode.

>Isn't the Rose next in the "Story" section new? It looks like an early rendering of (Fanpop image).
The background is very different, so they must have spun her model some 180° around, if they didn't simply take her model and put it into a new setting.

I wouldn't say gloomy, just more... Magic-y? Certainly less of the little-girl-exclusive thing that shows aimed at girls often go for.

Probably, but feel free to speculate!

>Uuuh, wasn't it so that Rose and Zack fell down at the same time?
Got to rush off and eat now, but didn't we see Rose reaching after Zack as he fell? I thought she fell in too after trying to rescue him.

>I got pretty hyped by the image alone, so I'm in party mode.
Woo!

>>Isn't the Rose next in the "Story" section new? It looks like an early rendering of (Fanpop image).

Differences I see:
- The image (tilt of hill, tree, 2 butterflies, and Rose) have been flipped
- The rainbow has been faded and now comes in front of the tree
- The flowers have been reduced in number and rearranged
- The colours have been faded (most obvious for tree, grass, and sky)
- The far background's changed

I'd still call it basically the same pic though.

New wonders about the site and MIPTV poster, courtesy of Twitter and Skype respectively:
• The crystal from the Zack episode is apparently not what was behind the blue trail, but rather the Blue Rainbow. That leaves the question of how the crystal is related to all this. Twitter reached a very unclear concensus where Skylia (particularly the Moonlight region) is hovering over the Filly world unevenly, so that a meteor-gem sky passes through Funtasia every 300 years, and the Blue Rainbow is a shooting star-meteor-crystal-gem.
• If you look carefully in the full picture [i.imgur.com] from MIPTV, there is a Filly box of sorts on the second-lowest aisle, with a picture of Xander on its front. Playset? Board game? Filly Funtasia toy line?
• The spider on the MIPTV poster is as fake as a £60 bill, with its face actually looking like it's painted on, and it has an unusual six legs.

>Raichu's "Life's a Witch" back here (DeviantArt PDF) (the classroom spell was put with those events here, which is still possible).
It took a long while before I found the plot in question, and even though I cannot really imagine that Lynn's afraidness would be involved (I thought of the site synopsis more as that Lynn gets generally pissed off), but it is a technically correct guesswork from Raichu'.

>I wouldn't say gloomy, just more... Magic-y? Certainly less of the little-girl-exclusive thing that shows aimed at girls often go for.
It has caves, unlit libraries, an apparently-fake spider and a mysterious machine, all crammed in one poster, so it seems that BRB is themselves actually trying to turn Filly Funtasia into something more than a usual horse show (Hasbro didn't even try to show off FiM as anything else than a girly show for the first three years), which is pretty cool.

>but didn't we see Rose reaching after Zack as he fell? I thought she fell in too after trying to rescue him.
After looking at the third trailer: No. We don't see that. I see Rose falling down right above Zack, and Rose is from the looks of it not standing on anything as she's reaching after him.

>I'd still call it basically the same pic though.
Okay then, you're the art expert here. Then the site picture would have to be a later and total edit of the first picture.

I guess it means they don't have all-new toys for the event... That's not so surprising though, given the confusion on the release date.

But you've got many Twitter followers of you, including none else than Skundi's Funtasia Daily account, and several others of a quantity that I can no longer view because you've blocked me. Are they allowed to stalk you, as you so nicely word it?

It is feasible that the Blue Rainbow could be caused by the blue crystal, after thinking about it.

>I guess it means they don't have all-new toys for the event... That's not so surprising though, given the confusion on the release date.
It could possibly be a preview box of our old theories of an FF-themed best-of collection of relevant Filly toys. Though Xander isn't really relevant to FF from what we know about it...

The logo's clearly FIM-y, but they've still gone for the flocked route. Then again, I've seen other flocked horse sets too, so maybe it's just a thing...? Elaborate hair on fantasy horses is rather Filly though: Very few non-Filly blindbag horses have so much as braids (from what I've seen).

This may be the first time in my life that I've been informed of a new Fillychan post thanks to a Club Filly wall post. Also, no major news from MIPTV yesterday or so far today; could the website PNG have been this MIP's big Filly thing?

You're somewhat right in my eyes; if it's stalking, constantly helping Rose or flushing Rose with bubblegum poetry, then it would be a very plain episode. When I read the synopsis, I was imagining it something more like Cedric having an internal drama of the sort of "Why do I suddenly feel so super-nervous around Rose and yet adore her above all else? Why?!", mixed with Cedric doing physical blunders and a few (but only a few) speech fumbles, which'd be a decent bit better in my eyes.

I notice that the top picture on the box have ponies who appear to have knitted wool hair, while the bottom picture have very Lissy-like ponies. With that difference and bootleg-ity, what could possibly be inside the blindbags?

The Fillys do have very different haircuts, even with some trends (Butterfly Fillys were very susceptible to long hair with big curls).

>Still, I like many of the designs I can see in this pic, so I'd get at least one if they turned up near me.
The centrepiece pony, with white fur, blonde hair and a blue horn-thing, looks somewhat good, but something about that knitted-esque mane and tail hits my "not normal and not something I'm used to" senses.

It does! I guess the re-release is due to other horse merch's popularity? Still, hopefully this new wave (questionable logo or no) makes it closer to me, some of them look very pleasant!

Maybe with quite a bit of Lynn, having realised what's happened, trying to fix things and not let either realise it was her fault? That would mean 2 Lynn eps quite early on though, so Cedric-focus is possible...

By the way, weren't we expecting "Rose's first day at the academy" to come first?

I was more interested in the bottom-right white-with-gold-hair one (under the price). I imagine the braids look better on flocked toys in person though.

You have imported toys from mainland China before, but I will be the first to admit that buying toys in a local toy store can be pretty fun on a good day.

>Maybe with quite a bit of Lynn, having realised what's happened, trying to fix things and not let either realise it was her fault? That would mean 2 Lynn eps quite early on though, so Cedric-focus is possible...
Lynn is said to neglect the potion, so I will counter and suggest that Lynn is not aware that it was her potion that made Cedric such weird, until perhaps pretty late in the episode (Around 19min into a 25" episode). That opens up some new possibilites to me, such as Lynn thinking for most of the mid-episode "Why is Cedric acting so strange? I know we had some potion yadda-yadda class, but this simply isn't like him."

>By the way, weren't we expecting "Rose's first day at the academy" to come first?
Yes, I think I remember that we did expect it that way, although it was on-and-off in a competition with the theory of that the cupcake episode would be episode 1, due to short-lasting memory of everyone involved. I remember it as that the butterfly scene and the "Academy opens its doors" scene would be an episode 1, if the cupcake episode actually was E02 or E03. Now it's all pretty united, I guess.

>I was more interested in the bottom-right white-with-gold-hair one (under the price). I imagine the braids look better on flocked toys in person though.
I am willing to swear that I've seen a pony with a similar coiffure in Lissy Magic Ponys, but if all of Charm Pony are PetZoo toys, then I guess I can't say much against that.

>>>1848363
Aah, okay. Although, I haven't found pictures of what is inside the blindbags, so I don't feel 100% sure that it is the PetZoo horses that are in it. Maybe Charm Pony is a big enough bootleg that it only uses PetZoo horses for its advertising...?

I did a Google search of "charm pony", which gave no good results (The curse of FiM and search engines...), but I did find out that Amazon had a lot of MLP G3 storybooks, some of them with pretty interesting covers for those in this thread who knows a bit about G3.

After some experimentation with ways to replace the act of having to use links to disputable YouTube videos every time someone wants to link to a song, I found Deezer (For instance, here's a song [www.deezer.com]). It's available in 180+ countries, which does in fact include Russia. It has a free mode in which you can select your own songs (So long, Pandora), and although an account is needed to listen to more than 30 seconds, the account creation is easier than to tie one's shoelaces. A handful of artists are lacking (Metallica and Nintendo are completely lacking), but you'll get some 80-85% of every released song you could be looking for. Also, yes, it's legal and pretty much backed by several record companies.

Some Skype experiments and a chat with Zejgar has made me convinced that I could declare Deezer to be the Filly fandom's (self-)official source of music for the purpose of linking songs to others, making us super-unique among fanbases for not using YouTube for 95% of song linkings.

The Wiki doesn't have a separate article about the Filly Fan Club figures, since they were considered to be the same character toy- and design-wise as Filly from Filly Beach Party. To give the two Filly display figures their own article, would only be possible if they had bio cards with many, many differences from the toys that Filly got in Filly Beach Party.

And not even then is it guaranteed that they would be seen as new Fillys. Melian and Schulfee still share an article, and the 7 Neon-Fillys are limited to a section on the Toy line articles page.

I did add your picture of the two toys to the Filly article, along with a new line written into the article, so at least they are acknowledged now. :)

Did not understand, and here the "Beach party"?
"Filly Fan" that's three extra horses, which could be purchased only by the members of the German Filly Fan club. Unfortunately, they are closing (or already closed)

Basically, they are toys of the Filly mascot character. And there is already an article about the Filly mascot character.

>>It does! I guess the re-release is due to other horse merch's popularity? Still, hopefully this new wave (questionable logo or no) makes it closer to me, some of them look very pleasant!
>You have imported toys from mainland China before, but I will be the first to admit that buying toys in a local toy store can be pretty fun on a good day.
Yes! Plus less hassle and I can try to work out what's in the blind bag before opening it, which is kind of fun.

>>Maybe with quite a bit of Lynn, having realised what's happened, trying to fix things and not let either realise it was her fault? That would mean 2 Lynn eps quite early on though, so Cedric-focus is possible...
>Lynn is said to neglect the potion, so I will counter and suggest that Lynn is not aware that it was her potion that made Cedric such weird
She might have just neglected it for a moment ("ugh, I'll tidy it up after break") and then quickly realised the error. Ha, oddly the speculation on this makes me yearn for the show more than speculating on the mysterious blue crystal and caves... Not that I don't want to know about magical mysteries too, but I'm happier to speculate on that whereas I kind of just want to know what route they go with for Lynn neglecting a potion!

>>By the way, weren't we expecting "Rose's first day at the academy" to come first?
>Yes, I think I remember that we did expect it that way, although it was on-and-off in a competition with the theory of that the cupcake episode would be episode 1, due to short-lasting memory of everyone involved. I remember it as that the butterfly scene and the "Academy opens its doors" scene would be an episode 1, if the cupcake episode actually was E02 or E03. Now it's all pretty united, I guess.
I'm happy with "Rose's first day" being shown later in flashback form (often the "first episode" type of ep isn't actually the best place to start since it's often more them interacting as strangers than friends). I do remember someone (Raichu maybe?) being very certain that #1 was Rose's first day... Seems unlikely that she'd cover for Bella having only just met her though.

>I am willing to swear that I've seen a pony with a similar coiffure in Lissy Magic Ponys
I think they look a little more intricate here (less cartoony).

>Aah, okay. Although, I haven't found pictures of what is inside the blindbags, so I don't feel 100% sure that it is the PetZoo horses that are in it. Maybe Charm Pony is a big enough bootleg that it only uses PetZoo horses for its advertising...?
I guess it's possible, but that would be VERY misleading!

...Chocolate wings? Sounds like an oddball in a fashion show. Also, in picture 9, Zara and Kirina have no pupils.

It's been more than three years since I last shopped for blindbags in actual blind bags (presuming MLP Minis doesn't count). Since I assume there's air in the blindbag that complicates the issue, it still sounds more like a Christmas thing to me to squeeze and shake boxes.

So by what means could Lynn attempt to fix her error? A counter-potion, knocking him out for like two seconds, talking sense into him, or trying to keep Rose away from Cedric at most costs? I can mostly see negative consequences of these options, though.

For me, the episode basically be a way to see what kind of character Cedric is. We know absolutely nothing about him FF-wise, and still nothing about his regular behaviour. It'd be belovable to watch the episode, but if Cedric is shown off on an earlier point in promotion materials, that'd be awesome but would reduce The Crush's importance.

>I'm happy with "Rose's first day" being shown later in flashback form (often the "first episode" type of ep isn't actually the best place to start since it's often more them interacting as strangers than friends).

At various points in time, I did feel certain that the "Looking at the Academy" scenes from the first trailer would form an introductory episode. Said theory pretty much vanished from existence when common consensus became that "the cupcake episode" would be the first episode.

>I'm not sure I'll get into it as I really hate making new accounts and signing in... Still, best of luck!
That's a new thing I now get to know that you despise... and one that I very frankly think I'll have problems remembering, heh... I feel like pushing Deezer pretty far, in part as it's not YouTube (Looking up professional music on YouTube can give odd results at times), so one can expect that I'll link to Deezer at times in this thread when I feel like talking about pro songs.

>Where are we at with considering a Wiki move?
The long version is "Skundi is implementing more and more small details to the wiki to one day make it an alternative to Wikia that everyone would want to use and desire, but just about everyone had other priorities after the MIPTV wall poster and hasn't gone back to regular pace yet".

I've been planning to ask you this, and since Fillychanthread is much easier for telling others about chats that has happened:

Do you wildly randomly have any info on a Filly Wedding advent calendar? There is only one picture and one internet store listing (at bücher.de, possibly buecher.de) that shows to me that it has ever existed. I understand if you don't have info, but I was hoping for the best here.

I notice we have some language problems in this thread; I've attempted some stilted but slightly easier English, but I can also try to speak broken English, which I am also fluent in as of two years ago. Me using broken English would be very bad if you depend on Google Translate in this thread, though.

I assume a mix of those two; delaying him whilst she tries to make the cure or such ("I bet Rose would prefer it if you wrote her a song first!"), all without getting anyone suspicious that she did anything wrong.

>For me, the episode basically be a way to see what kind of character Cedric is. We know absolutely nothing about him FF-wise, and still nothing about his regular behaviour.

It could always play his current actions in conflict with his normal actions? "What's got into Cedric? Normally he's studying by this time, and instead he's... Writing poetry?"

I do look forward to finding out what he's like though!

>I did feel certain that the "Looking at the Academy" scenes from the first trailer would form an introductory episode.
Those could still be in the first ep even if it's not Rose experiencing it for the first time with us. Or they might be in the opening credits?

>so one can expect that I'll link to Deezer at times in this thread when I feel like talking about pro songs.
That's fine. Maybe it'll grow on me.

Regarding the first (introductory) episode:

The most likely thing to happen is what we get from any new series involving a team of main characters. The very first shots of them will be character-establishing moments, and the very first episode will be a stimulus display, or whatever the proper term is.

Basically, the way to introduce characters is to blow up whatever feature you want to emphasise first and add depth later. The way to show off characters is to show them react to the same thing in very different manners. For MLP, the introduction of the characters was them being busy at their jobs: Twilight spends only a matter of seconds outside before rushing to the library. The first time we see Spike we know he's an assistant, and so on. Showing off characters was especially in the first three episodes: everyone has something different they want out of the Gala (including nothing at first, in Twilight's case), something different to ask Applejack, and a different approach to the dragon in Dragonshy. Same with Power Rangers: first time we see Kimberly is while she's doing gymnastics, isn't it? Teen Titans... kind of a bad example, because the episodes got out of order.

Anyway, my guess is, if we don't get any real arrival episode for Rose, we'll open the cupcakes episode and series with Rose painting, Will trying some sort of trick while Cedric looks up from a book and tells him to please stop before he hurts himself. Actually, the most time efficient would be for Rose to be painting Will while he's standing on one front hoof and then the fall happens. Bella's introduction probably involves birds (let's hope it's not too much like Fluttershy, then) and Lynn's introduction, if the lack of confidence does become a thing on the show, will show her somewhere in a corner worrying about something or other and only half-heartedly getting involved on the artsy stuff.

We already know Will's going to put on his brave face and claim he'd headbutt the cupcake thief, but two out of three girls know it's a sham, so how that's going to work out on the entire roster is anyone's guess. It's not quite everyone responding differently to the same thing, which is kinda weird. Not a bad idea, necessarily, but weird. I'd certainly expect Cedric to have a character establishing moment there as a voice of reason, as someone calm and collected, if that old 'Intelligent' marker from the early reveals is anything to go by.

So, tl;dr: Cedric's most likely going to get basic character in the cupcakes episode before he gets his own goofy episode.

I have taken a while to reply now, as I've had some ear problems for a day or two (like when you have flu or fever, but only in the ears), and have prioritized Twitter and Filly Wikia. Twitter is somehow quickly on its way to become my main chat place, although that shouldn't be properly problematic for the other five places I'm on.

I've also often thought that there is roughly equal genders in Filly, although a Twitter chat gave the toy lines overall more of a 2:1 female-male inhabiting of the Filly lands.

>>1854010
>Hee, kind of!
I still shake and squeeze Christmas presents to this day, though when you've (I've?) passed twenty, it's getting pretty easy to guess the presents, partly owing to having less wishes in life that other people could help you fulfill.

Hmm... I actually can imagine something like that happening.

>I do look forward to finding out what he's like though!
Same here! Possibly because he's basically my favourite Filly by virtue of nothing more than his toy bios and some stares in the trailers.

As for the sequel fanfic: I've struck some more problems by now, as there are a small handful of characters in it whose presence could prove problematic, so that version of the fic most likely won't reach FuD now. I am still hoping to finish it for the sake of Fillychan, though.

>>1854894

Perhaps "introductory episode"? Or "establishing episode"?

>Twilight spends only a matter of seconds outside before rushing to the library. The first time we see Spike we know he's an assistant, and so on.

Okay, that's a fair point. I do know of a small number of shows who are pretty much mysteries early on, though: TF Prime spent six episodes (which did include a five-part opener) in order to establish who was who in the main crew of 10-ish.

>Cedric's most likely going to get basic character in the cupcakes episode before he gets his own goofy episode.
More or less, but the question mostly remains of what his basic characterism would be.

Well, we've already sort of got hints that Bella and Will are fairly extraverted, and assuming Lynn's confidence issues are a thing (which, admittedly, isn't a given), she'd be a bit more introverted, adventurous but not one to work in groups so much. Rose, as the main character, would be somewhere in between, leaning towards 'Let's all be friends'.

So... if Cedric's the 'Intelligent' one, my guess is he'd be like Lynn, but instead of being adventurous he'd be more of a researcher. Lots of reading, nice enough guy, easy to approach but not one to approach others very easily. Book smart, basically, and given the rest of the cast looking the way they do, probably the least likely to get overly excited over something.

>Perhaps "introductory episode"? Or "establishing episode"?
That's the thing, though: the kind of episode I'm talking about isn't limited to introductions. Dragonshy was textbook example: everyone is given the same stimulus of 'Dragon threatening Ponyville', and they all react differently. You see how characters are defined by their differences, which is easier to do if the thing they're responding to is the same. The Gala fits that description as well. It shows off character traits, but it doesn't necessarily limit itself to showing new ones.

Maybe calling it a Band Episode would be better, or a Main Cast Episode, or a Role Call Episode.
