Can we talk about this?

Am I crazy to think that no two straight girls would touch faces and look at each other like this?

Does this not basically confirm that they're a couple?

You're thinking with the wrong head, OP. I cuddle my straight friends all the time. It's no big. Besides, during something as potentially emotional as a musical duet, it's entirely possible two girls would give each other a look like that for a moment.

I'm very curious, what could someone DO with someone else's stolen cutie mark?
starlight said "This cutie mark belongs to a princess, it could be very useful to our cause"
but was that just a lie?
I know that when she said that, I really wanted her to actually use the ponies' cutie marks against them
So yeah, I want to know what /pony/ thinks

It still wasn't exactly what the episode was setting up. The thing from TK was specifically about magic and absorbing it, with the cutie marks fading just being a visual sign like being Discorded turns you grey and treating absorbing magic as just absorbing general power, while TCM was more about how the cutie mark represents a character's individual and unique strengths and talents, with the main conflict being about them being removed, not absorbed.

Without any hints or reasoning that Starlight could and was going to do something similar to Tirek absorbing magic, then it's not really a red herring since the writers didn't plant any false leads to divert the viewers attention, it's just speculation of what could have happened that wound up being wrong.

>Well first they would have had to establish that you could absorb someone else's cutie mark in addition to having your own.

Not at that point in the story; Starlight had not yet been outed as having her cutie mark yet. They could have taken the story in the direction of her actually being equalized, but wanting to steal Twilight's cutie mark (replacing the equal sign of hers) with Twilight's out of jealousy of it.
This would still have shown her as being a hypocrite as she would have stopped being equal herself the second a "good" cutie mark came along for her to steal. She simply would have been dissatisfied with her own cutie mark and due to that have come up with the equalization plan more to bring others down due to her personal dissatisfaction with cutie marks instead of truly believing her philosophy. (roughly the same effect as her beings shown to not believe in equality, she just wanted to be better than everyone else).

I feel that the plot would have been better if she'd had a plan of doing something with the cutie marks instead, as it feels like a waste of potential and meaningless build up for her to steal the cutie marks and focus on the mane six's (and twilight's in specific) being extremley important if she was just hoarding them.

Almost right after we find out Starlight is personally holding onto the mane six's cutie marks, we then proceed to see that she wasn't equalized.

And it's still not a red herring if you're just making up possibilities for what could have happened.

It's not the existence of season 5 itself that we're keeping from being spoiled, it's the information about future episodes that haven't aired yet that we keep under spoilers for the sake of those who want to go into an episode blind.

So. what do you think would be cool or interesting objects for Meadowlark to have possessed?

Would you want any of them to possibly have been a magical object shown or referenced already in the show?
Would you want any of them to actually be evil?


Would you want there to ACTUALLY be a 9th relic that was never recorded in history books after all?

See, that's how I feel about the majority of the popular songs (at least until fan covers make them good). "In Our Town" is marchy though, and it's only grown on me since the ep.

I think Starlight's taken the top as "pony I'd most like to cosplay (if I cosplayed)" for me: Her "me winning is everyone winning" attitude seems like it'd be fun to do!

In sameness, there is peace.
Exceptionalism is a lie.
Free yourself from your cutie mark.
Choose equality as your special talent.
Difference is frustration.
To excel is to fail.
Be your best by never being your best.

So, with the last couple of music videos, Sunset and Rarity had random cray ass magic powers.

Do you think that this will be a thing in the future for Equestria girls with all of the mane seven having magic they can do?

what i mean is.
with Maud, Coco.
there is no problem, they will not get a pony toy of any kind. at least from the start, they are created with a different vision. and they resulted to be ok for secondary characters, i mean. i dont get the appeal of coco, but people go crazy for her, i dont care.

while sunset shimmer is part of the icon of the entire new line, they are going to make dolls based on her even before the movie was release, and even before they could see the reception of the movie.

so maybe that make her into another tool just like Cadence is.

Sure there you have your Sunset development, which i think is really weak, but people love her now, so what ever, she passed from "im a dumb villain" to "im so sad, im the nicest girl in the world but no body love me, crawling in my skin----"

Hmm. Your post makes me realize that I was a little unfair in pointing out how Rainbow rocks and the newest shorts all focused on Sunset, since, as you pointed out, they really do have to work hard to make sure the audience gets a good feel for Sunset and who she is as a character.


That being said, I think friendship games will be when we start to get a good feeling of how she fits into the world and the universe, since Twilight will be introduced.
If Sunset is used centrally in Friendship games, it will be a good indication of her being the new mane character for the series, compared to the movie not really having a real central character in order to focus on twilight specifically.

Not true; Season 4 actually started to experiment in having adventures occur at points besides the finale and the premier, with Power ponies, Daring don't and Three's a crowd.

Its highly plausible for them to have mild adventures occur this season mid season.


In fact, with the Probability of six episodes like the key episodes, I wouldn't discount the map happening alot.

We've got a date, we've got a synopsis, and the season 5 thread is getting pretty big, so I'm making this thread a month early for all the discussion for the premiere.

This premier's title is Cutie Markless Parts 1 and 2.

>In the Season 5 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity and Applejack meet Starlight Glimmer when they are summoned to solve a friendship problem only to find a utopian village in which everyone has given up their Cutie Marks. At first look, the ponies in this village appear happy, but it soon becomes clear that Starlight Glimmer has a vastly different and rather sinister view on friendship and the individual talents that make Equestria's ponies so special.

This episode airs Saturday, April 4th at 11:00 AM EST/ 8:00 AM PST.

  Its the first day of April, and a flash of hype has just taken EQD by storm: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2015/04/preview-clip-of-new-apple-bloomers-show.html

It's a preview for a supposedly new series called "Apple Bloomers"; but something tells me it's just an April Fools joke.

What do you think, is it real, or is it "April Fools"?

I'm currently saying "April Fools", and... "don't we know it" (like how Duck the Great Western engine said it): https://youtu.be/t2it4uatjcY?t=35s

As more S5 and EQG3 info is released, thought it'd be better to separate the two threads.

Short overview of EQG3 info:

-"Friendship games", inter-school competition story
-"Science Twilight" playing a large role in the movie
-"Shadowbolts" name of the villains/villain team, and "Crystal Prep" being the school name
-Releasing in Fall 2015

So far, we have 4 Stallions for 4 of the Mane 6: http://www.deviantart.com/art/The-Boyfriend-Club-435220293

We have Flash Sentry for Twilight, Cheese Sandwich for Pinkie, Soarin' for Rainbow Dash, and Trenderhoof for either Rarity or AJ.

But I have been thinking for a while now that the show needs a Stallion for Fluttershy; but now what do you think he'd be like?

I can imagine Fluttershy's "Special SomePony" being of the hippie/counterculture/earthy type (so I guess he'd naturally be an Earth Pony), and I can imagine his Cutie Mark being a 'White Dove carrying an Olive Branch': http://sweetclipart.com/multisite/sweetclipart/files/imagecache/middle/peace_dove.png
