#110) What would you say are the biggest misconceptions society at large has about the MLP fan community? Also, what would you say are the worst assumptions society has made about MLP fans that, unfortunately, are generally true?
Answer: I'm not sure how aware of the MLP fandom society at large is, and so I'd first point out that the majority of people do not, and will not ever, have any knowledge of the bronies. Those who do know of them, though, seem to have different perceptions, most of which appear to be negative. Having spoken to a few members of the public about "Friendship is Magic", a common misconception seems to be that the people who make up the brony fandom are either paedophiles or homosexuals (sadly, being gay is still treated as a bad thing by many).
Liking something designed for kids obviously raises assumptions, but it's doubtful that many bronies are paedophiles, and neither would I argue that bronies are more likely to be paedophiles simply because of

"It's very beautiful, isn't it?"
"Y-yes it is... I never imagined..."
Twilight and Luna were standing on the deck of the Ponyville Library. It was the middle of spring, and Winter Wrap Up had long past. The grass was growing and the flowers were blooming, adding a beautiful green hue to the world as Luna's moon shone brightly overhead in the dead of night. The temperature was warm and the air was muggy, but the sky remained crystal clear. The pair of them were looking through Twilight's largest telescope, which she had just set up the night before.
"Things are so much clearer with a bigger lens, don't you think?" asked Twilight.
"Definitely," replied Luna, her eye glued to the eyepiece, the telescope pointed low on the horizon. "What's this star called?"
"It's called Antares. It's a part of the constellation called Scorpio," said Twilight, looking at one of her books. Luna took her face away from the eyepiece finally, looking up at the sky itself. She stared in the direction

The crowd cheered as the final words were spoken. With a quick movement of the hooves a sea of hats flew into the air. Music played loudly through the entire auditorium as hugs and cheers were spread far and wide. Some were crying, some were laughing, and some could only just smile broadly.
Fluttershy's hat sat, still adorned to her head. She let out a soft sigh. It was graduation day from Flight School. She had barely passed, her flying skills were nothing impressive, but they were enough that the school deemed her ready to face the world. But despite that, she couldn't feel happy.
The one pony she had hoped would be there cheering her on, that would be in the stands praising her for how much she had accomplished wasn't there. She hadn't heard a single word from Rainbow in over a year and she had given up hope that she would hear from the hero that had saved her from failing a long time ago.
The crowd around her began to fan out, heading into the stands to meet with family a
After Mare-day Gras...The light from Celestia's noontime sun brightly shone into Twilight's sleeping face, causing the unicorn to cover her face with a foreleg. "Mmmph, 5 more minutes...

But, try as she might, the warmth from the sun gently urged her from her slumber. Giving a sigh, the unicorn slowly opens her first her left eye... Then her right eye creeps open as she stumbles out of her sleeping nook. Still half-asleep, Twilight trips down the steps and into the kitchen. "Mmmm, need tea... Wha-what happened last night...?" The last thing she remembered as she trotted drowzily into the kitchen, was being at the local Mare-day Gras party Pinkie Pie threw last night...

Orchestrating young Luna's fall,
To darkness and corruption of her soul,
Possessed by both envy and hate,
Banishment was her final fate,
Her sister forced to pay this horrid toll.
These events are well known to all:
The Moon Princess's rise and fall,
A tragic tale and a warning as well
And yet there still is much unsaid
More of this story to be read
Of the time after Princess Luna fell
Luna now banished for all time,
Final victim of Nightmare's crime,
Celestia's warmed heart began to chill,
She knew that what she'd done was right,
Sending away Princess of Night,
Yet still this knowledge was a bitter pill.
And for days Celestia wept,
From when she woke to when she slept,
But she continued her appointed task,
She wished that she could change the past
But soon accepted this at last
And hid her grief beneath an aloof mask.
So came the day, so came the night,
The moon's dim glow, the bright sunlight,
And Celestia sat upon
Alice and Syrin - PrologueIt was a dark and stormy night in Manehattan, and the bright, fluorescent lights hit the hard pavement providing tiny shelters of light from the dark clouds above. The rain had not yet started, but it was soon to come. Thunder could be heard in the distance and the vague flashes of lightning could also be seen. This was going to be a big one, just like the Cloudsdale Weather Service had scheduled, and pony denizens of the city were all making haste to return home before the storm began in earnest.Alice and Syrin - Prologue3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"WAAHH!" yelled a young, orange-maned unicorn colt from the back a dark alleyway. "Don't hurt me! I don't have anything worth stealing! I swear!"
"Oh yes you do! Hand over the book! There'll be no excuses this time!" retorted a white-maned mare.
"B-b-but it's a priceless family heirloom! I can't just hand it over!"
"We'll see about that!" exclaimed the mare with a wide grin on her face. She began moving towards him, her horn lighting up, as the colt pressed himself further into the dark alley

The Great and Powerful Trixie
My name prophesising
A renowned showmare
My challenge to all
Better them at their own
A veil to my insecurity
Ponyville, my downfall,
A minor setback
Confronting an Ursa true
Revealed my act a shimmering hue
Upstaged by a librarian
Saved by the Goddess
A disgraceful dethroning
Mirrored sparkle, fading
But an illusion...
A lack of appreciation

Theatre is but fiction
None but that mare could provide contradiction
News will travel
But Trixie will endure
After all, the world is a stage
And Trixie, its premier mage.

"There's one in every town " She said to herself.
It wasn't long before she reached the Boutique; she peered through the windows and saw Rarity lying on her sofa with a glass wine levitated next to her. She was obviously distressed. Twilight to the rescue!
Twilight burst through the door, making Rarity leap off the couch and almost forget about her wine.
"Twilight! You startled me! I was umm just taking a break!"
"Rarity, don't you think it's a bit early for wine? I mean even for you "

..I'm going to have quite a bit of work on my hooves with this new book!" said Twilight Sparkle, as I ran to catch up with her.
"I'm trying my best, Twilight; I can't move as fast as you with theses dinky little legs and pulling this big book," I replied, pulling a red wagon behind me, the axles squeaking under the weight of the huge book within. Is it my fault dragons grow slowly? I grumbled to myself as I finally caught up with her. One of these days I'm gonna finally start growing up, hopefully leg first. I sure hope it's soon; I'm tired of not being able to keep up with the others.
Twilight smiled back at me. "I'm sorry, Spike, but I've been waiting ages for this..."

Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo were all clinging to her, begging her not to go. "Consarn it, you three act like you never had a babysitter before! Are you two just going to watch?!

Rainbow Dash rolls around laughing and wipes a tear from her eye. "I'm sorry. I'm too busy laughing to help! Besides, it is kind of cute."
Rarity nods and says, "I'd rather not get this dress damaged by these ruffians. I am rather shocked they can slow you down though. I thought you were stronger than this."

I shivered as a cold gust of wind swept over me, pulling me out of my slumber. I blinked my eyes a few times and let out a quiet yawn. I was still tired but, I was really comfortable. Fluttershy and I were still cuddled up with each other, but she was still sleeping. I wiped my eyes with my free hoof and took a look over to Fluttershy to make sure she was alright.
Fluttershy seemed fine. She felt a little cold but, she was fine. I must've shielded her from the wind from the night. Thank, Celestia for that. I would hate for Fluttershy to get sick and not only because of that, but because it would make the trip back home more a pain as its already going to be. My leg was still feeling soar and so was the rest of my body. That tree really took its toll on me, and Fluttershy too.

“Ma’am, you can’t smoke here.”
She heard the voice, but she willed it away, taking another drag of her Equestrian Spirit cigarette.
“Ma’am…” the voice began again, but was cut off as the blue unicorn let out an exasperated sigh.
“The Great and Powerful Trixie HEARD you.”
“Well, I…” the tan waitress stammered.
“Yes, you.” Trixie turned to face her tormenter, adjusting her thick frames with her hoof as the cigarette dangled from her muzzle. “You have deemed it your responsibility to police the entire outdoors, just because your employers have adopted it as part of their overpriced establishment.” She gestured to the other tables in front of the coffee shop, where other ponies huddled, doing their best to stay out of the conflict.
The waitress, clearly uncomfortable with the direction the conversation was taking, tried to deflect.

El aire era cálido y el sol brillaba, todo los ponies en Ponyville estaban teniendo un día glorioso. El centro de la ciudad se encontraba lleno de ocupados ponies que llenaban las calles. Cada uno de ellos parecía tener un lugar específico al cual ir. Todos excepto Rainbow Dash; su lugar estaba en el cielo. Ella volaba libremente por el aire, acelerando de un lado a otro, agitando las copas de los árboles y perturbando el aire. La pegaso azul pasó por encima del patio de la escuela, tan solo para impresionar a los pequeños ponies, luego subió varios cientos de pies y comenzó a caer picada tan rápido como pudo. Segundos antes de golpear el suelo, sus alas se abrieron y ella regresó a claro azul del cielo. Rainbow se sentía viva.
De pronto, Dash recordó que ella debía estar en otro lugar, se supo
My Little Muffin - Part 1 Soft, classical music echoed through the halls and rooms of the humble abode that night. It was a gentle tune, violins and bass bringing forth a powerful, yet emotional crescendo. For some reason, ponies liked playing Posh Ball's 'Canon in D Major' at weddings, possibly to reflect what they hoped the future would bring. Meanwhile, Derpy Hooves busied herself with fixing her dinner: she was not nearly conceited enough to play this sort of thing while reading.My Little Muffin - Part 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The amber-eyed pony hummed along with the tune as she chopped up some celery to put in her salad, looking out her window and into the night sky. Although it grew warmer in her house by the minute, she didn't dare open the windows or else succumb to the horrid stench that came when hundreds of ponies expelled the contents of their stomachs. Derpy shook her head at the thought, dumping the chopped vegetable into her salad.
It all started out innocently enough. The town

The baby dragon sighed and pushed himself away from the table, mentally bracing to give it another try. His claws clicked lightly on the wooden floors as he walked up the stairs to the purple pony's bedroom. Eventually reaching the second floor of the library, he knocked loudly on the right-hand door at the top of the landing. "Twilight!" he shouted. "Wake up! It's almost ten in the morning and you got another letter from the princess!"

All Rainbow Dash could do was wait, wait for her hopes and dreams to crumble around her as her friend's voices echoed in her ears. 'You will see your girlfriend tomorrow.' Rainbow's hoof slowly slid down the pane of glass as she lowered her sight from the window feeling the recurring pain as she limped over to Rarity's bed. Rainbow gazed down to her best friend curled up in a ball, breathing delicately in her sleep. "I'm sorry." She whispered before limping towards the door.3 Days Regret - Part 72 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The Princess gave a soft sigh as she gazed back to the desk, there were several parchments along the rim containing half finished orders to several of her subjects. Among the orders lay a single, blank scroll with a quill resting at its base. Celestia gave another small sigh, she wondered if it was maybe her hundredth of the hour. She knew all to well the reason for her distress. 'Twilight Sparkle, who is it you love?' Celestia kept loosing herself to her thoughts and worries. She loved and cared for Twilight like a sister, at first she feared it was the same as with her real sister, Princess Luna. But as their time passed together she could feel no desire for the young unicorn. Though this relieved her worries, it still upset her until the conclusion of the Summer Sun Nightmare event.3 Weeks Party - Part 73 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She had been at this for several minutes, and the situation called for a bit more urgency than her friend was showing. Or not showing, as the case may be. So far she hadn't shown up at all.
"Dash, am I going to have to get Fluttershy to go up there?" Twilight asked of the clouds. She finally heard from above, a low groan making its way down to her.
"Alright already." Rainbow Dash complained, rolling onto her front and over to the edge of her cloud home, where she could look down on Twilight. She blinked slowly a couple times at Twilight. "Can't a pony get some shuteye?" she complained.
"It's nearly afternoon Dash!" Twilight retorted. Dash just looked around lazily at the bright day she had somehow slept straight through until now. She gave a yawn.

Rarity paced around her workshop, deep in thought. Sure, there were dresses she was supposed to be making, but she couldn't concentrate on any of them right now; they weren't due anytime too soon anyway. It bugged the designer to leave so many projects unfinished, but there were more pressing matters to attend to at the moment. "Oh Fluttershy, how do I even go about asking you?

When she first appeared in Ponyville years ago, Pinkie was only a small pink filly and her mane was strait from sadness and the rain. The couple soon found out she had no family nearby, if any, and feeling sorry for her they decided to adopt her, at least until her parents could be found. She was such a sad pony back then.3 Weeks Party - Part 23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
