What’s wrong with me?
Is it the way I talk?
The way I fly?
Is it the way my eyes
Look at the floor
And towards the sky?
I just don’t know
What’s wrong with me,
But if you’d like,
I’ll never speak;
You can sew my lips shut
So I’ll not utter a peep.
I’ll hide my eyes
Behind their lids
To save you from
Would you love me then;
If I were blind
Now, let me share
A little secret with you;
I do know what is wrong,
And it isn’t me
You talk about me,
Make me feel worthless,
All because my eyes
And I don’t act
Like other ponies.
For you, I’ll never
Hold back my voice.
I’ll shout out
And be heard over
Never will I
Hide my eyes;
Let them look
Where they will;
Up to the heavens
And down to the Earth.
I am proud of who I am
And I will not change;
Not for you,
Not for anypony.

Chapter Seven: Who'll Be Best Pony?
Vallade said I'm pretty, Ditzy thought sullenly. Just like Dinky does. Why did he say that? Ditzy understood that love motivated her daughters' sweet words. Associating Vallade with that notion filled her with dread. Of all the recent regrets, foremost was the nature of The Doctor's request:
“I need you to do this.”
Hurt, betrayed and confused. Ditzy had wanted to pull away from The Doctor's hooves on her shoulders. When had he mastered such a firm grip?
“Why? Why?” It was all she could think to ask.
“There is a very dangerous man out in that ballroom, Ditzy. I need somepony in there I can trust! You are that mare! Come on, you know what we've been though. You've helped me before. Won't you help me again?”
“But ... my dress ...”
“I am sorry about the dress. I am sorry about everything, but Vallade will do worse than Nightmare Moon. More than darkness, he'll consume the

This "tutorial" will focus mainly on the face, touching generally on use of clothing for a "total" appearance. I will try to cover things important for part-time and full-times as well.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND - where referring to the differences in appearance, this is obviously not going to be truth for all men. Just like the concept of beauty, the difference between male and female has no exact formula that will work for everyone's face.
ALSO : This is not focused towards Drag Queens or outrageous female makeup - this may be a starting point, but Drag is more a fantasy and though there are some general concepts - something you just need to be creative with, not limited to a set of ideas about.
1. Hair. Current culture dictates, women generally have longer hair than men. Cut of hair is extremely important - the cut needs not only to be "feminine" but to flatter your face. You can have your hair (or wig) cut t

"A Friend in Deed"
An Overthought Review of MLP:FIM Season 2, Episode 18.
Note: As usual, this is all subjective.
0:00-1:11: Somewhere on Youtube is a video of this scene with "Eye of the Tiger" playing in the background.
Needless to say, Pinkie has an odd morning routine. Not that this is surprising at all. There's a nice little switch-up here when they reveal that Pinkie's doing this to entertain the Cake twins rather than just for the heck of it (not that that would be surprising either). That doesn't necessarily preclude the idea that this is Pinkie's usual routine, though. She seems to be practicing her sort of "amusing all the ponies" routine or something.
I'm really not entirely sure what to make of this scene. On one hand, it's definitely hilarious. It's a lot of fun to watch, there's no denying that. The mere image of Pinkie wearing 80's-esque workout gear is funny on it's own, and slapstick el

As the festivities continued uninterrupted below, the winged pony ascended the stairwell and went through each room of the building, floor by floor — kitchen, bedroom, library, stockroom, and whooooaaaaaa! She reached the top floor and her wall-eyes gazed around the sight of massive room that amassed a labyrinthine jungle of the rusted cogs and jagged gears of the Old Clock Tower. The patchwork of holes left in the broken roof allowed glowing beams of sunlight to stream into the room, as a flock of white pigeons fluttered out. The walls hung with hundreds of clocks, clocks of all kinds, all different shapes and sizes, ticking and tocking in all different ways. Position

My Little Dashie: Sick DayI woke up one Monday morning, hopped in the shower and got dressed for work. I wasn't exactly looking forward to getting up so early, after all, Dashie and I stayed up pretty late last night playing Checkers. We were still celebrating over her Cutie Mark, I know it's a bit obsessive, but I'm just so proud of her for getting it. Much to my surprise, she's quite the skilled Checkers player. She beat me every single game we played. Although I was sort of holding back, simply because I loved seeing her so happy especially when the reward was a big hug.My Little Dashie: Sick Day3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I peeked in on Dashie to make sure she knew that I was heading off to work. Upon opening her door, I noticed she was still in bed. This wasn't that unusual; she does usually get up about the same time I do, but she has been known to sleep in once in a while especially when she stays up real late.
"Get up Dashie" I called to her, trying not to startle her too much.
My Little Dashie: First HalloweenIt's now been one whole month since that night I found Dashie. The two of us really have something going now. For starters she's actually beginning to enjoy bath times and is making more progress learning to speak. However she still refers to me as "Daddy," and at this point, I've pretty much given up trying to convince her otherwise. I'm almost starting to hope she goes back to Equestria soon, because I don't want her to get attached and then be hurt when we're finally separated. Yet at the same time I'm really starting to feel attached to her myself, and hope that day will never come. Either way, we were coming up on our first holiday together Halloween.My Little Dashie: First Halloween3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Twilight broke on the horizon, the sun peeking above tree tops and mountains as it rose. Small rays of light drifted through Twilight Sparkle's bedroom, falling upon her face. As slowly as possible, she opened her eyes and rubbed the sleep from them. Rousing herself, Twilight slipped out of the downy bed that had always seemed much too large for her, and walked to the window to gaze out at the land. It seemed surreal to her, the ruling Lady of Canterlot.
Why me? she wondered, as was her daily tradition. Why did everypony choose me? I never asked for this... this... Rainbow Dash had always told her it was an honor, but she could never bring herself to believe that. Twilight looked out the window, nearly all of Equestria in sight.

Now and then I think of when you were on the show

And then change the Dr name
I guess that they don’t like us though

Going to a new school a few weeks into the year was already bad enough. Thank God the teacher didn't try to catch me up on every assignment. That was the only thing I liked about him. He was one of those older gentlemen that didn't get along with students and should have quit teaching ten years ago. I ignored everything he said that wasn't math related.

Pinkamena Diane Pie was always a strange girl. Her family was an odd one, a family of rock farmers. She had two siblings, Octavia Isabelle and Bellamine Hannah. Of them, Pinkamena was the oldest, while Octavia and Bellamine were the younger twins. When they were born, little filly Pinkamena was unable to pronounce either of their names, so she called on Inkie and one Blinkie. The twins couldn't pronounce Pinkamena's name either, so she was called Pinkie. Their parents, Clyde and Sue, disapproved of the nicknames and only called them Pinkamena, Octavia, and Bellemine.
Being rock farmers was not the kind of life the little fillies wanted. They were only allowed to go to school once a week. There weren't any smiles or laughs at their house. It was a very strict household for a while. Of course, there was a large change of lifestyle after the rainbow.

#10) I know a brony who legally changed his name to that of a pony. What's up with that?
Answer: Some fans are really extreme when it comes to how much they like the show/fandom. Some love it so much that they're willing to do irrational things, one of which is changing your name legally to that of a pony. At that point, you're most likely taking things too far. I'm all for expressing yourself and feeling free to behave however you wish (as long as it doesn't impact on others), but the primary issue with the pony-name thing, apart from the inherent ridicule that'll arise from it, seems to be lasting appealing.
Consider that the show won't be around forever. Whether it lasts for another year or two, it's highly unlikely that you'll be watching new "Friendship is Magic" episodes in 2020. By that point, it's reasonable to assume that the fandom will have slowed down a heck of a lot. Logic suggests that when episodes stop being produced, interest in the show will dwindle; som
