#97) I am an open brony with everyone, except my parents. I'd tell them, but my dad will not approve. He even disapproved and called me gay when I was really into "Phineas and Ferb". Imagine if he found out [about "Friendship is Magic"]! There's no way he would approve. But I want to buy merchandise, shirts, and other stuff. So what do you think I should do about telling my parents?
Answer: Your dad sounds like a royal prick. I don't know what his upbringing was like, but your sexuality isn't defined by watching a simple TV show. "Phineas and Ferb" might be geared towards an audience younger than yourself, but I'm not sure why it would be considered, in his eyes, to be 'gay'. I think he might be getting mixed up between watching something that's distinctly effeminate and watching something that targets kids in general. If anything, "Phineas and Ferb" is a show pitched at boys (although, naturally, it does have universal appeal) and so I can see why you'd be worried about

As the Wheel Turns
Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

#101) Why do so many bronies lie about their gender? So many (guys) pretend to be girls and it's weird. This one guy pretended he was a slutty girl pony so guys would sex roleplay with him and treat him nicer and flirt with him. Am I the only person who thinks this is creepy? You shouldn't lie about who you are, should you?
Answer: Of course you shouldn't lie about who you are. You should know everything about everyone. I don't befriend someone unless I know at least the following details: what their blood type is; where they grew up; if they have a history of heart failure in the family; when they started to walk; what their first word was; how many kids they plan on having (if any); and so on. The list is endless, and even then you can't trust people.
Concealing information is fair enough, but lying about information is a bit of an odd one. On the one hand you have the power to be whoever you want to be online – if you're a weedy, anxious individual who can't co

#79) As a woman should I be worried that the people that run our fandom are guys primarily (example: Equestria Daily)? I must say I was a bit offended when I saw sexualized ponies getting featured.
Answer: This is a fantastic question, because it's so multi-faceted and it raises genuine points about larger issues that exist in society. Despite feminism and suffrage, and policies that increasingly purport to grant women greater levels of equality, women are still marginalized in a lot of circumstances.
It's fair to say that Equestria Daily is a male-run website. You have the occasional female admin (Phoe springs to mind) but naturally, Sethisto is the dominating force of the website, and, I imagine, the one with the power to accept and veto the overall decisions that Equestria Daily makes. A simple glance over the site suggests that it's run by men, for men: you can quite frequently see images of ponies in 'sexualised' poses, and on more than one occasion they've linked t

#46) What's with the crazy adoration for brony 'celebrities' [people popular within the fandom]? Some of these people are treated as guests at conventions just as much as people working on the show. It pisses me off that the fandom worships certain popular bronies. What do you think of this?
Answer: It's important to remember that brony 'celebrities', as you put it, are just normal people. And, in some respects, yes, certain individuals are seen through rose-tinted glasses. I always find it amusing when fan-musicians, for example, are featured on guest lists for conventions above people such as Daniel Ingram, the guy responsible for most of the songs in the actual show.
Then again, the fandom likes its idols, and there's no point in getting pissed off just because said idols are receiving a great deal of praise. Most of the brony 'celebrities' deserve at least a portion of their fame, and so it seems fair to say that if people are willing to look up to these people

The Rain-Bow Incident
All was quiet and calm in the town of Ponyville. The skies were sunny, blue and cloudless. Like the top shell of a robin's egg encased the small town. The park was bustling with life. Ponies of all species and backgrounds were walking, talking, playing, anything and everything that would be expected on a sunny afternoon.
All of a sudden, a pony's head, blue as the sky above it, poked up from within a bush with a pair of nervous, scarlet eyes that gave the area a quick scan. Just as quickly as it appeared, the head vanished back into the safety of the bush.
Rainbow Dash could feel herself shivering. There she was, in the middle of the park, several ponies walking around that would be able to see her in plain view had she stepped out of her designated hiding spot-inside a thick bush that was pushed up against an oak tree.
Normally being noticed would b

Now and then I think of when you were on the show
Like when you said you just don't what went rone
Told myself that you were right for kids
And felt so happy in your company
But that was friendship and it's a feeling I still remember
You can get addicted to a certain kind of (pony/show)
Like waiting for the season finale
Always the finale
So when we found that you could not make the rote
Well you said that you would still be in the back
But I'll admit that I was sad that you were over
But they didn’t have to censored you
Fro-ing her out like a baked-bad
And that she were nothing
And they don’t even think of your fans
But they treat you like a baked-bad
And that feels so rone
They didn’t have to to censorer you
Make the bronys cry in there beds
And then change the Dr name
I guess that they don’t like us though
Now you’re just somepony that I used to know
Now you’re just somepony that I used to know

Rainbow Dash kicked one of the last clouds in the sky.
It was a warm summers day and she was put on weather duty. Dash was supposed to clear away all the clouds to make room for Celestia's shining sun. There was a good thing about being on weather duty though, she got to secretly keep some fluffy clouds to nap on and nobody would notice! She hated when another pony cleared all the fluffy and comfortable clouds, leaving her tiny weak ones to nap on. Thinking about that, Dash realized she could use a rest. She lay down on a large cloud, feeling the warm sun to her fur.
"This is the life," she said to herself, "it feels like I'm on the beach. Oh yeah! We don't have beaches in Ponyville."
Just as her eyes were closing, preparing for a great dream about the Wonderbolts, something hit her. Not a thought, something literally hit her. Right in the face! Dash gasped, hitting her face with her hoof to see what strange thing that smelled like Applejack's farm was on her face. Somethi

Down in the town, spirits were high as Pinkie Pie held yet another party. "Did that girl ever do anything else." Up on the apple farm, though, one pony was by himself. It wasn't that he wasn't invited (he'd been to couple of them in past), but those wild, sugar fueled hootenannies just weren't his thing. It was okay, though; he knew how to keep himself occupied.
Big Macintosh strolled through the apple orchard, inspecting the crop. It was going to be a big one; he could already hear the jingle of bits in his head. On his way back to the house, the stallion's ear twitched and focused on a sound. A crunching sound. He didn't like what he was hearing. He knew both of his sisters weren't home, so could only m

8:13am - Home
Mom's going home today. She won't be here when I get back from work. I really am going to miss her.
We hugged for ages and ages before I had to leave for work.
"You've dealt with all this stuff pretty well. You hung in there better than I would have, trust me." she told me. I laughed.
"Thanks. I never thought I'd say this, but... you've been a great help."
She grinned. "That's what I'm here for, sweetheart. And hey, you can phone me anytime. I'll be right there."
I could feel tears welling up in my eyes. Oh, not again!!!
"Oh, Dash, don't cry... You couldn't wait to see the back of me three weeks ago!" She giggled, and I just cried harder. She held me tight, and I buried my face in her mane.
"I don't want to live alone anymore, Mom..." I mumbled.
"But you have the power to change that! You need to follow your heart, and it'll take you on the right track. I have a feeling you won't be alone for long."
We shared one last long hug before I made for the door.
Lone PrincessThe castle was empty. It was always empty.Lone Princess2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As the lone Alicorn walked slowly through the halls, she listened to the echoing of her hooves clopping on the floor of the hallway.
The castle was so big, every room cavernous compared to the equine who roamed it. It scared her... yet it was the only thing she could call home. She felt like she had always been here. Always been alone.
She tried to look out of the windows lining one side of the hallway, but she could see nothing outside. Crystals as black as the deepest cave covered every window, every door. She could not break them. She could not escape.
This place was more of a prison than anything.
The pony prisoner shivered, and coughed haggardly. Her blueish-purple coat was lined with tiny patches of ice in some places. It was so cold. So very cold.
She spread her wings, shaking the tiny icicles off of them. They were too frozen for her to be able to fly, the feathers saturated with ice.
Even her horn could hardly use

But all she wants is a day,
A day to live her entire life
In every fractured way.
She wants to find her way today
Instead of looking for tomorrow,
Yet she always wonders why
Every day is bleak and hollow.
She looks for wisdom high and low
Here and there and in between,
But instead of wisdom all she sees
Is a picture show of her own dreams.
She's looking for another door
To take her far away from home,
But if she ever finds it at last
Then she will truly be alone.
She lives the troubled life of youth
But she lives it not alone,
She lives it with her many friends
And among them is her future's own.

"Huh oh yeah sorry," said Dash as she landed on the cloud. 'What are you doing you stupid mare acting like some love struck filly?' she thought for the love of Equestria she was blushing. Quickly she turned her face from Soarin hiding her embarrassed look away from him.
Soarin chuckled to himself. He knew that Dash had been looking at him rather than concentrating, he also knew that Dash was self-conscious. 'She's so endearing when she is blushing'. Soarin thought to himself, eager to see her glow even more he asked her a question that left her speechless.
"Uh Soarin do you think you could repeat that?"
