#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

Now the hour has come at last
The soft and fading light
Has crossed the west horizon
And has bidden us goodnight
-The Moon Rises
Air colored a lavender-blue, the smallest rays of light peaked over the horizon to shine towards the sprawling lands that lay over that horizon. These were the most petite of beams however, not enough to bring true light to those who it passed over but enough to signal the dawn of day. It was these lights that lightened the sky to the shade of the only one viewing them with great wonder, a being with the body of a pony, the wings of a pegasus and the horn of a unicorn while she was none of these things. If she were to take flight she could easily

"And what is it that you are here for today, citizen?"
In the royal day courtroom there stood many ponies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from bulky earth ponies to slight pegasi to frail Unicorns all the way to the giant mixture of the previous three races, an Alicorn. Celestia sat on top of a regal and rich purple pillow on the side of the court away from the large doors that gave entrance to it. Next to her stood the green coated day captain, his posture rigid and his face plastered with a seemingly permanent smirk. On the other side of Celestia was her technically former student Starswirl who now spent his days acting mainly as her adviser and her chief spell maker. The rest of the courtroom was filled with various ponies who stood in various positions, some off to the side to observe while others formed a long line that reached the back of the giant and o

The Heir to Courage
The Hero's Shade traveled shroud in the shadows of a thickly wooded trail. Paws nimbly picking their way through fallen branches the wolf silently tread to the secluded home buried deep along the outskirts of Hyrule.
Within the last few hours Shade had found himself once again able to sense the Triforce of Courage.
From the moment the golden relic was split by an unbalanced touch the three pieces of the Triforce were destined to be continually regifted and reborn through generations.
Courage had made its rounds time and time again, each time leading its wielder on an righteous but otherwise uneventful life.
Wisdom was most often reborn within the royal family and earlier this year it had done so yet again, with a new princess, again named Zelda as was tradition...
But what troubled the Sacred Beast is that in all his wanderings he had yet to see anyone bear the mark of Power...
As an ethereal being Shade made his way easily and silently into the dusty old rafters of

Perched atop her balcony as per usual, Luna rolled her eyes before turning to face her sister, a little perturbed that her moment had been interrupted. Celestia couldn't read the annoyance on her sister's face and went right on to speaking with her now that she had Luna's attention, inadvertently ignoring her sister's mood.
"Your constellations were quite the marvel last night Luna."
The princess of the night sighed and closed her eyes, exhaustion beginning to set in to her body after having crept in the whole afternoon and night before, "Why thank you Celestia,"

It didn't matter. There was no past, no future. Only the flames.
Oh, there was the light too! A light that came from everywhere! But mostly there was the flames.
Twisting, flickering, burning at her very soul. The pain was immeasurable, but it had always existed, as far back as she could remember, and she could remember a long time.
Or maybe she could... It was somewhat hard to measure time when there was nothing for her to measure it against. There was only the flames, eating away at her, yet never making her any smaller. Forever burning, the fire was all that existed.
Her body was... Wait, did she even have a body? Maybe she did at some point. At least she thought she did. Maybe she did. She hoped it was a nice body, one with a soft mane and maybe some nice friends to go along with it. Oh! And a name! She remembered that she had had a name at one point. It was a pretty name too. She had liked her name! She wished she

Slowly I drifted toward consciousness, aware of a throbbing pain in my head. Something soft and wet gently dabbed at my face and hair, cleaning away the dirt and blood from my fall. I murmured softly, struggling to open my heavy eyelids.
I lay in a small bed, staring up at a cobwebbed stone ceiling. A single lantern provided adequate light for what appeared to be a tiny, single room house. It sat on a small table, illuminating a variety of items — and the cloaked figure who used them. Quietly he wrung a cloth into a bowl, his face hidden beneath his hood.
I tried to speak but managed only a small croak, since my throat felt dry as sand. The man glanced toward me and quickly grabbed a bottle as he returned to my bedside. Gently he tipped my head up, holding the bottle to my lips so I could drink.
When I had taken all I wanted, he lowered my head back onto the pillow and rose to set the bottle aside. I watched him reach for a bundle of cloth before he se

"Lady Twilight Sparkle!"
That night had been dreamless for Twilight, almost mercifully so. It had allowed her a peaceful, uninterrupted rest. This morning, however, wasn't about to give her the same courtesy.
"Grmph... Who are you and what do you waaa- What in the name of-" Twilight unleashed an uncharacteristic string of obscenities as the unknown name-caller ripped open a pair of drapes, flooding the room with bright sunlight.
"Princess Luna may have ordered me to let you sleep in, but enough is enough, Lady Sparkle. You missed breakfast, you're late for your next appointment, and the Princess even raised the sun for you today!"
Twilight rolled over to glare at the clock on the wall; it was barely 9. This mare was beginning to get on her last nerve. "Fifteen hours ago I was in the hospital."
"A Princess does not make excuses, Lady Sparkle. If you are to be a Princess, you should begin acting like one immediately."

MY LITTLE POEM
Ponies with Ayreon
[Click here for the accompanying song]
Bathing in prismatic light
Awaking free at last
Able to move on my own, I'm back in control
Only blurred memories left
Glimpses of the past
In my dreams I still walk the surface of Moon
I saw my home
From where I stood
What once was my home
From my thousand-year room
Isolated on the Moon
Locked within the abyss of time
A voice echoed in my mind
A shadow reflecting life
Resentful thoughts enslaved my soul, my heart
How did it wish to break free
Torment the world once seen
How did I wish it to leave my soul, my heart
Long years alone
Friendless and cold
Alone with my thoughts
One tormenting soul
While my spirit roamed the Moon
Locked within the abyss of time
So warm it feels to walk on earth
So much it heals to see living world
So much it calms to meet loved ones

#64) I'm at college and my room-mate doesn't know that I like MLP. I'm embarrassed to mention it to him, but it's a problem because I can't draw or watch ponies with him in the room...which is all the time. What advice do you have for me?
Answer: I think you should be at an age now where you should be accepted for your inoffensive interests. He probably has his own interests that could be seen as embarrassing. You're living together for the foreseeable future, and so it's not healthy to keep something to yourself that you want to be a part of. It won't be much fun spending an entire year, or perhaps longer, hiding your interest and avoiding drawing and so on.
Don't make an effort to 'tell' him: that's making it more important than it needs to be. Just do what you usually do draw ponies and watch the episodes on Youtube or whatever. If he asks what you're watching, again, don't go overboard. Announcing that you're a 'brony' is unnecessary. Just say that it's a show

Princess Luna lay on the balcony, staring at the moon she had just raised. Although she knew her nighttime was appreciated, still she felt darkness creep at the edges of her heart. It wasn't bitterness this time, no...she just felt so...alone. She sighed, lowering her eyes, trying to blink away the tears that began to form at her eyes.
Luna leapt to her hooves, turning. "Twilight Sparkle," she said, addressing the purple mare that stood before her. "We did not realise you were there. Is there something you need of us?" By long force of habit, she spoke in the royal plural, although she did not use the royal voice as she had at first.
"Not exactly," Twilight said, stepping onto the balcony with the princess. "Actually, three nights from now, my friends and I were going to hang out at Applejack's barn, and I was wondering if you might care to join us if you had the time?"

It was a warm and sunny midmorning, ponies of all sorts happily trotted along the cobblestone streets of the most magnificent city in the world. There was to be an extravagant gala later this evening and ponies from all over the world had come to attend it. After all, the richest and most famous ponies were all going to be there, especially the richest and most famous of them all; the one and only Princess Celestia. This was a party that was truly a must come for all.
"It's so wonderful to finally have you here, Princess Celestia."
"Please, Commander Chiton. The pleasure is all mine. I cannot wait until we arrive at the gala. I have no doubt it will be one to remember."
"I'm glad you're so enthused, Princess. I can't say the same for myself though. I've been having these odd dreams as of late, and I haven't been able to sleep very well. If there's anything I remember well from the oracles' teachings, i

"Tell me what troubles you, my little pony."
The words lurched from Twilight's mouth. "We found Luna's diary!" her eyes widened.
"Sister." Celestia called. "Come out now. It's time to let in the light." Twilight looked over her shoulder. She noticed a flash of green light under the door. It creaked open.
"Luna, no!" Twilight told her.
"I must, Twilight. We shall stand strong together." Luna stepped out of the door.
Meanwhile, in the Ponyville Library, a piece of paper came from nowhere and floated gingerly down onto the face of a pegasus sleeping on the library floor. The pegasus, still asleep, tried to blow the paper off of her.
Shall you now?" Celestia asked. She turned to Twilight. "It's time to sleep, my little pony."
Twilight stumbled. "Twilight!" Luna called her name, but it sounded so distant. Her eyelids grew

but I am loyal 'til the end,
I do not service the dishonest,
I bide my time in starlight blaze,
the sun has ruled too many years,
the night will rise once again
and with the moon as my witness
I'll bide my time to set the stage,
a thousand years to plan the game,
a stalemate hand has been unmade
and royal thieves have been unveiled,
I will not rest nor will I wait,
the time is here for radical change,
equality for one and all;
a royal crown will surely fall
and with it, justice will be made.
To the Night, I pledge allegiance,
To the Moon, I vow obedience,
Forever I shall be a loyal subject,
All hail, our most beloved,
The, one and only, Lunar Republic.

You're walking through the woods
When a sound sends shivers down your spine
A thunderclap from Hell
Makes you pray for protection divine
Something moved, what was that
Shadowy figures in the trees
Thundering hooves, glowing eyes
Makes your blood turn to freeze
Night fall, hear them coming
Don't think, just start running
Shadowbolts - your worst nightmare
Shadowbolts - you best beware
Dark mist and fog surround you
Your body is shackled with fear
A silence that's so cold
Broken by whispers in your ear
Apparitions, tempting you
Promising your hearts desire
Their mission, snatch your soul
And cast it into the fire
You hide, they'll find you
Don't look behind you
Shadowbolts - there's no escape
Shadowbolts - Your soul they'll take
Seek you, near or far
Wherever you are
Shadowbolts - there's no salvation
Shadowbolts - spell your damnation
