Season 9 Discussion Thread Anon 03/03/2019 (Sun) 22:42:35 [Preview] No. 3583 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Ladies and gentlecolts! The final season of the legendary animated pony series from the 2010s is here!

The 4th generation of this franchise: My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic! This wild entertaining ride is actually ending!

The 9th season premieres on April and we´d better get ready to die (like Andrew W.K would say) because the last 26 episodes are coming this year, including the Rainbow Roadtrip special.

Any discussion, reflections, thoughts, theories, speculations... basically anything related to the episodes goes here.

You all know the deal. Like the old tradition for weddings: talk now or shut up forever before the nostalgia comes into your heads.

Links for streaming the upcoming episodes:

Congratulations for reaching the end of this generation and let´s try to enjoy the pony material left as much as we can!

And this leads to a very artificial drama that doesn´t translate all that well to those shortcomings from the actual life.
Here, if you are seeing the students succeed is because they have learnt the lessons that were taught back in season 8. They aren´t ponies (save Sandbar and even him is a stereotype of a typical cheesy pony) but in reality, they are a product of those lessons, just like Spike, Discord and later in season 6, Thorax showed in their attitudes.

If anything, ponies have already won. The reason the students joined and considered that this was an emergency for them is because they care about the same interest that ponies did: the Tree of Harmony. If they didn´t care, then yeah, culturally speaking they would be different and in the short clips, they show how their culture vary from each other.

But here it is the deal, the antics that come from them are strange and the closest thing that happened with such altogether interactions among so many species started with To Where and Back Again, then the movie and finally, in season 8.

They implied that it was an emergency and they came to offer their own vision to rebuild a legacy that was mostly lost. That came from their own will and they could have ignored the tree of harmony if they wanted. Why would they care if they didn´t have these lessons?.
Silver Stream wouldn´t have dreamt about becoming a Wonderbolt, Smolder wouldn´t like tea parties, Yona wouldn´t put her chill side instead of smashing almost all the time, Ocellus wouldn´t have focused on discovering pony´s history after getting redeemed in season 6 nor Gallus would have cared about having a little bit more empathy after feeling loved and valued from his friends....

So yeah, more variety is a mistake... yet they only focus on the visual part. Just another detail to add: When The Place Where We Belong starts, close your eyes and don´t focus on the fact they are different species, can you tell me how many differences there are between being sung by ponies and the students? Because all that I hear is the same Hollywood pop musical act that ponies have delivered over this entire gen and I almost believed for a moment that RD singer was in it.
Well, I have told way more than I expected.

>Despite all these new characters being added and a massive apocalyptic clash we only got six new sets do to Lego wanting to move on to the next thing and prep for it.
yeah probably because of oversaturation in the toy market. They simply don´t feel ready to change the merch and they always sell the same old same because of reliable sales and that implies that the mane 6 are the ones that bring most of the revenue. To an extent, using other characters feels like an anti commercial way to market the toys....

>That is a very good comparison.
in fact, I rewatched it again today. I´ve got to say that, besides knowing that it was pretty good episode (I cherish the pacing way more this time in hindsight, the Lady Writers did a great job here), there was a weird sense of nostalgia. This episode was the 2nd one I watched along with the fandom and it aired 4 years ago.

So, the comparisons should be obvious. The voices of reason were Spike and Rarity who took the leadership of those ideas, all the mane 5 showed their own vision on how to decorate the castle and the episode tried to redeem the product placement that happened in the season 4 finale by putting the old tree with those little gems that show the old events that happened for those 4 seasons. The filler parts comes from Spike but those events happen just to distract Twilight from the surprise. Not only that happened but also the mane 5 redecorated a little bit other parts of the castle, most notably the table for the dining room from Rarity´s part.

Uprooted follows this formula but on reverse. The product placement is the new Tree of Harmony and it hasn´t justified its creation. Does that mean Twilight´s Kingdom should be rated badly because of it? It didn´t because it was too awesome but there was a crowdfunding project in which they wanted the old treebrary back...
Anyway, it follows the reverse process because in CSC, the castle was already built and they had to bring something special for it while this one, the message was to convey to build something new and adapt a new form from the new generations to come that carries an unique vision that happens just at that time.
CSC messes up with the castle decorations while the mane 5 are putting their visions in practice (except in the reprise for a short moment) while the students applied their ideas after getting permissions from their kingdoms without a song. TPWWB happens at the end, delivering an uplifting but conclusive way to say that they have a solution to end this problem. After the song, that product pays off with a defined version of what the students wanted but weren´t capable of, they simply gave enough energy for the tree in order to grow and get a complete form from that fragile treehouse.

The idea of a Treehouse came from Yona, who acted as the voice of reason and she explicitly said that she hadn´t liked having arguments between friends (Gallus asked for her opinion in the middle of the argument by the way).

Despite having a few notable differences, the same formula was applied and I am convinced that if there is anything close to this in order to draw comparisons, it should be Castle Sweet Castle.

>In fact when you word it that way, it makes me a little surprised that I don't like it.
I didn´t like it at first too. Just that I tried too hard to bitch about it but I did constant pauses in order to point out the wrong things and the episode doesn´t drive to have such negative mindset. It took me like 3 times and that might be the reason why I feel that warmth with the interactions from the students. It´s more like I have reached the inability to find the complaints other fans used.

>It is interesting for me to have a more mixed negative reaction to it yet not being quite off in some observations from each other.
what a boring life would be if these things didn´t happen. I suppose if I started to act with fanatic thoughts, it wouldn´t drive you to think the same way. That means at least, that we have watched the same material...

>Purely mechanical.
basically

>If they do have some explanation later that isn't an excuse I'd be just fine.
yeah but they don´t seem to show it (yet? IDK) so we are left with that question unanswered.

for a premiere this late in the irde, that´s quite an achievement on its part.

>A family member has this as one of his favorites.

Having watched both today, I am posting both songs and...I am putting my hand on the fire (again) but the Place Where We Belong could drive to a lot of nostalgia vibes in the future for a lot of fans. Not now but there is a conclusive subtlety that feels like everything is going to end pretty soon and it has ended up being a highlight for me.

Make This Castle A Home pays off with the reprise but the song itself shows those good vibes as well until the end. Visually speaking, these songs go in reverse, one messes up the situation (most of the time) while the other one fixes it. Different characters yet so close to each other in their concepts.


What else can I say tonight? Not much else for now. So I am ending my part today. Goodnight /endpone/.

>The magic of friendship is magic
so the magic that comes from friendship is actually magic.

In conclusion, we are magicians.

>I'm probably going to be more in consumer mode for awhile as I get a feel for the season, with edits and /go/ on the side.
yeah, me too. I have come back but I feel like we have done more than enough for this hiatus. It felt short because we haven´t stopped posting about very different things all the time and now, season 9 has arrived. Yeah, setting up a passive mode for this period should be the next logical step to take.

>if all goes well the Mare in the Mountain maybe returning a little sooner than you think
oh my....oh my....

>I just thought you were going to post stuff for the OP
lol no, I wasn´t planning that. I simply asked about the image for the OP but I had in my mind to post all the stuff worthy to show at the front for any newcomer/lurker that has been edited during all these months. Your suggestions were the same ones that I had thought.

>not all of our greatest hits with a almost eerie theme to it accented with a rush quote
which means that despite not seemingly taking your musical links all that seriously, when it clicks, it clicks but in another way. I had read those lines of that song and I considered worthy to present them as the main column of the thread, especially with the line: "Now that 4th dimension is crossed" which points at the programs for the artificial editions. That eerie theme just came because if anyone sees those distorted flawed images, one would be overwhelmed at first contact. I simply posted them as the most unique ones, not because of ego but because of how few editors would consider the flaws for twisting an image manually with a finger.

>I think it was a modget, but a lowkey one the usual modget flavour to avoid any flak like last time
yeah, it´s a forgettable one. Only channers know how to make interesting GETs as usual (just like the triforce)

>What saddens me is the near unanimous commenters approval to modgets to "ensure that GETs are safe for everyone". I guess I'm like Discord in this case. Let the chaos happen.
yeah, I suppose I agree with you on that part. Everything seems to run on a safe script that is made to be big but only ends up having way less impact than it should. Everyone would be making drama and remembering the GET if it was clop/edgy/shipping (imagine if it was a Flashlight pic...) image. There would be a special attachment to it despite its quality and would cause several funny reactions.

>it seems like it didn't occur to him to use different IPs and/or accounts to upload images to circumvent rate limit despite being aware of it. Like, c'mon, it's almost like you wanted the GET to fail.
without that detail, more users would have suspicions about the system. I don´t know what´s worse: either the GET tracker or Derpimods at circlejerking that they have "achieved" a safe GET.

>I am feeling a bit of apathy these last two days. Yes, even if I should be hyped for season 9, I have no expectations for it and it has come as simply more content to speak rather than the main material to be circlejerking about for now.
I had that feel during season 7 premiere actually, I just felt like I was going through the motions. It was busy around that time and it just felt like another stressful thing I had to keep track with, so I think I can get that.

>I will have to reinvent myself and recover the right attitude
>(maybe the efforts of trying to be original and interesting all the time have made their effects as well)
I'd say especially on the second, anon. You have talked before of your pressure on your posts, though not recently. Remember, don't let it be a burden. Even if it means you fully can't reply or just shitpost. If there is any advice I can give is to simply not sweat it. Take a few days, just chill and get through the day to day and reevaluate from there how ya feel. Don't worry about posting, don't worry about being a negative or trying to force positivity. If ya don't feel like watching right away thats fine too
On top of that, don't think "the first thing I gotta do when I get back is review the fic and the show" that'll just make it a stress on your mind, you'll review it when ya feel like it and besides that was a prototype anyway.
Besides, with what I know about your schooling that is a pain itself.

until you get to watch an opener like season 9´s one and you feel the magic all over again. Every prejudice is gone after giving the show another try.

>I'd say especially on the second, anon. You have talked before of your pressure on your posts, though not recently. with what I know about your schooling that is a pain itself.
yeah, you mentioned that I made an effort for the image editing thread and it´s true that I have wanted to express way more than I usually offer. I fear a little bit of getting too repetitive so I try to go a little bit further. I suppose that ambition has a price for what it´s worth.

[/spoiler] Yeah, I read these lines back on Sunday and I decided to take a break save for posting a few nice images on Tuesday I think. I have been active for these two days so the things stay a little bit fresh and alive. The stressful period of the lab sessions is gone. I will say I still don´t promise anything and that´s why it feels like I am box full of surprises. But I am fine, thanks for thinking about me. [/spoiler]

I have watched it, twice in fact. My problem is not with the show, the show will stay, it has made its memories. That will never change. About your fic, I don´t know when I will make it justice but I will say that I had a good experience while reading it, the concept of Cadencebat is much more defined, it was a more plausible story for this franchise, much more straightforward and less chaotic than the revolution fic. There it is, taken with a general perspective. There are a few questions but for a prototype, it seems that the main sketches have already been made. Congratulations for defining her so clearly. If the review doesn´t come, at least, these words are posted for you to see.

Again, my only advise here is what I have already spoken.

And that is wise. Because if ya promise ya only have pressure to deliver and the pressure prevents you from being spontaneous with random things you may just want to do over the course of the day and random post for fun.

Welcome to Golden Oaks! Sit back and get /confy/ and dive into the vast amounts of data across the web that has been generated by the MLP fandom.

What is Golden Oaks?
Golden Oaks isn't quite sure exactly how to define itself yet. It is devoted to a rather nebulous topic of the fandom itself with an archival mindset. It will vary from as diverse subjects as academic research done on the fandom to even the discussion of old dead pony memes and trends past and present. With perhaps some self reflection as well.

What is Golden Oaks not?
Golden Oaks is not for the simple dissuasion of the latest scandal within the fandom or gossip about X. These subjects maybe relevant at times in the discussion of certain happenings and periods within the fandom, but the thread itself shouldn't dive into drama without reason.

What is this place?
This is the endchan's pony board. While we are microscopic we have regular posting and a somewhat distinct culture as can be with 3 anons and the occasional drifter . /go/ welcomes outside contributions. Feel free to look around.

Yep I saw. Though some of this maybe do to people avoiding spoilers the mlpforums had 800 users online at the time compared to reddits 200 I wonder how that compares to the pillars? I've always been a bit discounting for there.

There is a few small /pone/ and /semi-pone-related/ places I need to check on 8chan and considering what happened I probably should do it soon just in case

well, MLP Forums is by excellence the social media for the EQD side of the fandom. You can start to worry a little bit if that shite doesn´t show any activity at all.

>I wonder how that compares to the pillars? I've always been a bit discounting for there.
they are reaching the 80k user mark, some of them are dead or multiple accounts but yeah, they are managing to get a consistent level of activity over time. They won´t beat the main pillars but it´s not something you can look down at so easily.

>A very inactive yet young Equestria Daily alternative. Most recent post in september of last year and the oldest being in 2017. Random and intermittent posting that appears to go on hiatus for months from what I can tell.
let´s see if there is more activity for this season. I should mention that the site combines Spanish articles with English ones and if you check its Twitter´s profile, you will check out that this site has been made by a Mexican. Basically, it´s an independent blog that I think compiles Latin videos that would come from equestrianet.org and American sources.

The most active era was around early 2018 and only had an active period in September.

Been going through the Ponychan circlejerk trying to figure out a chronological timeline of important events for /go/ archival. Man this banner of their's is way too descriptive for their own good. Frankly I wanna cover only essential details for archival purposes and try to keep petty non site effecting drama out of it... the lines maybe quite blurry on that, but I'll post more detail later.

well,folks. These are the posts that one should stop and appreciate them for a little bit inside your heads. Out of all the reactions that you could get, these are the most valuable because nobody in this fandom actually expected to see the end a few years ago and now, we are living in an era in which MLP is causing nostalgia before it ends.

It seems that it has earned some kind of respect over the years...and for very solid reasons.

Just stop and think about all those people whose lives were dedicated to the MLP fandom and now, they are looking back at it with eyes as if that was a precious past. From an explosion for memes and porn....to this...

What have we all done here?

>looking through a recent mlp related post that went semi-viral there had a lot of comments that really seemed to go with what we've always said with the fandom over there.
we have talked about so many things. I mean, we have posted like the holy bible and pretty long posts in these nearly 4k messages. It should be interesting to watch, at least as a personal reminder.

>>3941
>this banner of their's is way too descriptive for their own good
really?top kek. You cannot literally go full drama mode all the time. It´s impossible to do that, even /mlp/ has gotten sick of doomposting at certain periods. That must come from the site itself and its users. Otherwise, I cannot imagine how the show provides drama for those posts unless they nitpick every single thing that appears on the episodes.

PRINCESS CELESTIA OFFICIAL /END/ THREAD

Like a phoenix, she gets revived until the end of our days. The first princess to appear into this generation, the first princess who started the wild ride back in December 2017 and the one who will see our paths ending.

Call her majesty, call her princess, call her mentor of harmony, call her troll or just call her Celestia. She is raising the sun everyday, always there to shine in front of us with loyalty.

This is the first official thread dedicated to her. Post any pics, greens or content related about her (her sister is welcome as well) by following these two rules:

1.One image per post if possible so we appreciate any picture of her more than posting them all at once.
2. Always follow this line:

=PRAISE THE SUN==

And so, a new thread, a new day begins...

more like you follow this philosophy rather than taking it to a political view.

There is literally nothing wrong with being a centrist. Sure, there are a few setbacks, but every ideology has them.
I'm sure my centrist bros would agree, somewhat. I may be wrong though.

The most twisted and distorted thread of /endpone/ is here!
This is a place where the images shown are not real, your eyes will be tricked to no end and you´ll see how the surreal world conquers your view of those images that you had seen before.
The brony fandom was originally the combination of /co/+ /b/. The /co/ part is that this thread focuses on pony images. However, the /b/ side of this follows the same famous line that its original board shows: "Anything posted here are autistic works of fiction, only a fool would take them seriously." This means that nothing here actually exists but another version of that fictional material and only naive people would see them as fresh original content. Don´t worry, the actual images will be posted (not always together) for drawing comparisons and notice the details between them.

Let me sum it up by quoting these lyrics:

>Truth is false and logic lost
>Now the fourth dimension is crossed
>You have entered the twilight zone
>Beyond this world strange things are known
>Use the key, unlock the door
>See what your fate might have in store
>Come explore your dreams' creation
>Enter this world of imagination

The Twilight Zone by Rush (1976).

If you only managed to implement bat wings to her, that picture could have been pretty useful tbh

now, speaking of the 2nd mascot....

by using the flaws from the mobile app, I believe that your picture about Candy was way more exploitable than one would have expected...

It could've. I actually made it after th fic though. Though for future Bat Cadence appearances that is a path I could take.

Now this is good. My asset is still a bit amateurish but now looks both purposeful and creepy in its own way.

>I actually made it after th fic though.
yeah, I know, it´s just that it simply looks like it could perfectly fit for whatever you have planned with her.

>Though for future Bat Cadence appearances that is a path I could take.
yeah, even if it´s taken to a derivative edition from the original picture, as long as it puts the reader into that concept and translates decently what you want, that should be enough.

>Now this is good. My asset is still a bit amateurish but now looks both purposeful and creepy in its own way.
yeah thanks. I doubted for a while about its brightness and I had to decide among 5 editions and decide which one should make the cut. I have other versions of her (more red colored and with less brightness) and I can post them as well.

The main thing about it was making your drawing a little bit more complex with the flaws and give her a little bit of a bat feeling. I simply pressed my finger a couple of times inside the wing and the contours of her body were transferred to the inside of the main wing. Adding more sharpness, a partial color wash and the little adjustments made with the PC, turned out to this product. I haven´t made a chaotic edit that would make the cut for a good while.

It´s not like the first time I do this with your pictures.

also I am posting pictures I have found out there on Derpi

they are unedited and I simply leave them here so if anyone feels inspired at editing them, they could serve for future material.

Just like the Candy edit >>3817(which seems that you have liked it a lot)

And there it is. The fic that I've been tensing for the last month or so is finally out there. I overall have mixed but more positive feelings than the last one. Their are several things going on with this fic and a few details of its creation that I'll explain at a later time along with my replies. See ya around endpone!

Well, this fic I am mostly pleased with. Partly as a finished product, partly as a stepping stone. It ain't perfect but I feel very good compared to where it started as a purely mechanical exercise like the first one. When I decided to put Cadence in I didn't originally foresee how she's change the atmosphere. Her charisma and confidence are a more developed state than the first fic that's for sure. I see her as a wise guide, though perhaps a little morally gray . She felt Apple Bloom's distress from robbing the fields every night and perhaps just decided to take a peak. There was a second version of this though that I may reuse later that would involved another character and a debate on several different things but it felt chunky compared to Bat Cadence's chrisma and fear, which had a straightforward dynamic that I think works better for this one.

As for the images. I specifically had envisioned that with what I could draw it look good for a possibly creepy dream child like dream story, with using normal images from derpibooru for the parts back in real life. Several sets of images where made but the one problem that I constantly faced was Cadence's lackluster appearance at times. Her slender body I couldn't manage, at least with the hardware I have now. I originally had it ready to post a fair bit eariler. Notice how most of the pictures are numbered till the end? I had taken the what I considered to be the best from all the image sets and numbered them in order of use for minimal confusion for posting, yet I backed out because I decided I still didn't like the Cadences. The Cadence pic I used for most of the her appearances in some edited forms was actually a prototype asset that is from another ongoing project that I've been working on. She wasn't perfect but she fit hear perfectly and was better than the others you showed her true potential in the edit thread though So I just used that pic in various quick edits and figured it already went well with the mix of styles anyway. There is still plenty I think I could've done better but I think I still managed to achieve an atmosphere with them so I can't complain.

Bat Cadence is far from dead.

I know it's not fair that I do this but sometimes I think good quality images are not going to be eternal. Someday we will arrive to Deviantart core quality and we all know what that means.

However,I can solve a little bit their colours. It's artificial yes but at least,those edits make it pleasant to the eye and serve to post something between the good ones. These two have like 10 upvotes or so and I am putting in the thumbnail which ones are edited.I can link them perfectly though.

>I wonder too. I mean it makes the difference for me.
I am not a fan of uploading things on Derpit but like this picture and Flurry´s one, it really picks you up and see it on practice.

>It probably is the most coherent of them Though my fav is still >>3736 semi-gothic.
yeah, I could comment about that one instantly. I get why you are attracted to the edgy one but despite having its touch, it doesn´t drive me 100% to convey that edgy feeling. It feels somewhat subtle in comparison to the other two edits.

>The wrinkles look muscular and masculine don't they?
eeyup. Basically that.
>Wonder if I could remove some of the feminine futures to make it fully work?
I suppose that there is no wrong way to fantasize and try to make an attempt on it. It feels like you are watching a serious face from video game characters. Adult Link or a few japanese characters with that filter because of the lack of horsey characteristics.

>Would the change's intent be immediately noticeable to anyone beside myself? Maybe. It just is an edit for an edit's sake.

Yeah I guess I get that. The others are more... intense and expressive I suppose. This one lack of brightness could be a little dull and dreary in comparison.

>it comes from those irradiating pixels that came from the screens of the TV.
It does!

>>3758
Would you like to go a descriptive rout and get one of the better edits and original pictures and place them side by side? Would you say there is any edit that clicks or feels just right to you that you just like to use in the OP solo?

I like Iceblue Crash. Which is what I randomly name the edit of that Rainbow Dash pic. It looks nicer as a OC though I wouldn't say there was too much wrong with the picture. Just average decent tier.

now, those people fearful of oceans because of sharks and big creatures in the depths. How wrong those plebs were, ponies were the sirens chants that make the environment dangerous from the very beginning.

>The others are more... intense and expressive I suppose. This one lack of brightness could be a little dull and dreary in comparison.
exactly that.

>It does!
either it´s due to the filter or the oversaturation of a certain effect/adjustment.

>Would you like to go a descriptive rout and get one of the better edits and original pictures and place them side by side?
either showing the products alone or doing that method. I am basically compiling them and putting them in the front as a greatest hits from these edits. Not all of them work but simply a selection of what we have offered here. I thought about not including any description and then letting the viewer to ask why it happened before the info comes but a little description can come with them perfectly (or quoting the post of its explanation from this thread)

>Would you say there is any edit that clicks or feels just right to you that you just like to use in the OP solo?
I am certainly torn about it. The one edit that I still hold in high regard is this one >>1822 and it certainly represents how twisted and artificial the edits can get, to the point where you are in an artificial land that will lead us into chaos or imprecise imagery.

That´s my first but any other can work so I am asking to you before I do anything (not to mention that it feels kind of selfish). I could also include any edit that speaks for itself and came from you like >>1868, >>2496, >>2649 and >>3735.
