My Thoughts on DiscordNow it's time to talk about the second major villain of the series. The spirit of disharmony, Discord.My Thoughts on Discord in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I've said this about him before but in many ways he stands a a villain in stark contrast to Nightmare Moon. Consider this. When Nightmare faced the main six, she was very direct in her methods. She would often use physical force, or the force of others, to try and stop them. Inflicting physical harm on her enemies was her priority when dealing with them. That, coupled with her serious personality made her, despite the points I spoke of in my last essay, a very traditional villain.
But when thinking of Discord, I cannot help but think that this was a villain seemingly born out of a dare to see how much they could make a character who was the exact opposite of Nightmare. His personality was not serious or focused, it was aloof, getting bored with any situation easily and doing only what he did for fun. He had no grand scheme in mind, no ultimate goal besides doing whatever he wanted, wh

When I say that Applejack is a stereotype, what I mean is that she very much seemed to embody many of the traits that people have of those in the Southern United States. The accent, the farm, the big family, the hat. If it wasn't for Applejack's more redeeming qualities I'd have probably dismissed her.My Thoughts on Applejack in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Kings and queens came from all around to offer their gifts to the foal. Among them was the widow Princess Celestia, and her young son Prince Butterscotch. He looked down at the young infant filly princess, smiled, and gave her a golden necklace with a pink gem in the shape of a butterfly on it. It was then that Thunderhooves and Celestia happened upon the same idea. Butterscotch and Fluttershy would be brought together each summer in hop

Twilight Sparkle was watching the bon fire from the balcony. She went inside the empty throne room as she muttered "Oh, silly fiddle faddle!" As Fluttershy prepared the tea, she said "Now, come have a nice cup of tea, dear. I'm sure it'll work out somehow." "Well, a bon fire won't stop Queen Chrysalis." Sunset Shimmer said as she conjured cookies with her magic. "Of course not. But what will?" Twilight Sparkle took her cup of tea, and sipped it. "Well, perhaps if we reason with her." Fluttershy said. Twilight Sparkle turned to Fluttershy in shock and said "Reason?" "With Queen Chrysalis?" Sunset Shimmer asked. "Well, she can't be all bad." Fluttershy said. "Oh, yes she can." Twilight Sparkle said. Sunset Shimmer growled in anger and said "I'd like to turn her into a fat old hoptoad!" Fluttershy turned to Sunset Shimmer, who conjured another cookie for her to eat, and said "Now dear, that isn't a very nice thing to say."

It was nighttime in the land of Equestria, and in a bedroom, in a mansion in Canterlot, two fillies named Applejack and Rarity were listening to a story that was being read by Applejack's mother named Cheerliee. "Just in that moment, the ugly little alligator looked up with his sad round eyes and pleaded: "Oh please, dear princess. Only a kiss from you can break this terrible spell that was inflicted on me by a wicked witch." Cheerliee said reading the book as she worked on a purple ribbon. "Here comes my favorite part." Rarity whispered to her friend. "And the beautiful princess was so moved by his desperate plea, that she stooped down, picked up the slippery creature." As Applejack and Rarity leaned closer to listen to the story, Rarity nodded while Applejack was shaking her head no as Cheerliee read "Leaned forward, raised him to her lips, and kissed that little alligator."

The Doctor looked along the line at his new companions, and was instantly worried, he wasn't sure he could fit in with them, or if he could bring himself to get close to any of them, given his track record with friends. Derpy looked over and smiled at him, and the Doctor smiled back, but even then, he was worried about losing her, his only friend. The Doctor had witnessed wars, and fought in many, and he knew that you never get over the scars of what you do. But here were these young girls, about to fight a war with one of the most warlike and barbaric races on the planet, and for some reason, he felt certain that these were the perfect ponies for the job. The Doctor looked back at Celestia, who was opening the chamber that housed the elements of harmony, a source of power that even his species, the time lords, had failed to understand. Celestia opened the box, and The Doctor stared at the beauty of the elements, five necklaces and a crown, all adorned with a coloured jewel, shaped lik

The shockwave rippled up her arm as her hoof collided with the cheek of a griffin guard. Twilight's mane and tale were ablaze with magical fire; mostly for show, it was just an illusion to make herself look more intimidating. Her entire body was covered in magical armour; plates of glowing magenta energy that defected nearly any blow. Around the knees of her hind legs and going all the way up her legs and spine was a complex mechanical system of Twilight's own design. It supported her knees and back so that she could stand upright, much like Pinkie Pie after her bout of brainwashing. It was both a huge strain on her body and her magic. The spell used up a surprising amount of energy and with Twilight already exhausted from her earlier fight, she was struggling to keep it stable.
'I'll give them some credit, these guys are pretty dedicated to their job,' she thought as she threw a knife into the chest of an advancing guard. The twenty that remained had done their job well, protecting co

Fluttershy and Big Mac walked into the main tent, now decorated with black to signify mourning. Princess Luna looked at the map on the table, and Fluttershy noticed that her eyes were red from crying.
"You wanted to see us Princess.' Said Big Mac, Luna jumped a bit, startled out of her trance. She cleared her throat, and Fluttershy feared that they were going to receive the traditional Canterlot voice. But was surprised to hear a soft, melodic voice.
"Oh, yes, I have mission of the utmost importance for you both" Luna said, making her way around the table to them. "I am sending you both to the Griffin capitol to investigate the disappearance of Twilight Sparkle." Fluttershy was surprised to be sent on such a dangerous mission, but even more surprised that Twilight still hadn't come back from her mission.
"Why would you pick us your highness?" she asked, not scared, just uncertain. Her confidence was now at the point where nothing scared her, except losing her friends.

With him in his severely weakened state and with her and Jean not only injured, but also lacking their hidden blades, the coming fight was going to be very difficult. An audible sigh came from behind her and Panadol stepped in between them all, creating an awkward silence as she carefully tiptoed through the nests.

Rarity looked at the calendar on the wall and sighed. The war had been going on for three months, with no end in sight and she was still being pressured for more weapons. As the head researcher, she had come up with ways of improving the war strategies. One of her first innovations was to make a way for earth ponies and pegasi to hold onto swords and blades without the use of their mouths, and still be just as effective. Rarity was beginning to get fed up with her workmates, who seemed to want no interaction with her other than to flirt or get a design approved. She felt lonely in the cluttered workshop at the back of the pony camp. She was also worrying about her friends, the war had consumed them. Battle hardened; they became flighty or distracted easily.

Twilight lay on her bunk, a book open before her, the apple she was eating held aloft by her magic. She felt uneasy as Pinkie's dark blue eyes rested on her in intense concentration.
"Pinkie. Stop staring at my eye." Twilight said casually, not lifting her head from the book.
"I'm not staring at your eye Twilight." Lied Pinkie. Twilight raised an eyebrow.
"Then what are you staring at?" she asked the Party pony.

"It's not that I don't approve Tia. I understand why it needs to be done. I just wish you had told Twilight the real reason, or at least send some backup for her." He told her.
"She needed to find out on her own Doctor. Twilight needed perspective on the war, otherwise how is she meant to take my place someday." Celestia explained. The Doctor looked at her in confusion.

Fluttershy was awoken by Twilight, it was still dark but the tent was lit up by a few small candles. She yawned, as though it was any other morning, until her brain kicked in and she remembered what was about to happen. She got out of bed and looked around; only Celestia, Twilight and herself were awake. Fluttershy went over to Derpy's bed and pulled back the covers; she was embarrassed to find not just Derpy, but the Doctor as well. She shook them both awake and begun to get her gear on. Pony archers were some of the best in the world, and were revered for their skills, Fluttershy was nervous as she would be leading a group of these archers onto the battlefield and wasn't sure she was the pony for the job.
Fluttershy calmed her mind and thought of the ponies she was fighting for; Big Mac, Applejack and Rainbow Dash. She put the last part of her armour on, a leather patch that sat on the inside of the forearm. Archer pony armour was designed not to weigh them down, so it was made compl

Near the centre of town sat a large tree. It had originally been the town hall during Ponyville's early years. More recently, however, the tree house had become Ponyville's library. It was a place of peace in times of trouble and much to the residents' dismay, it was often damaged. The tree was bathed in the golden light of the morn, making the frost on the leaves sparkle like the stars. These were the same stars that the tree house's sole occupant, the unicorn Twilight Sparkle, had spent most of the night gazing at. Twilight turned over as the sunlight filled the room, trying to catch a few more minutes of sleep before she had to begin repairs on the hole in the ceiling that Twilight's Pegasus friend Rainbow Dash had made the day before.

The city was buzzing with talk of what had become known as 'the slums incident.' Twilight and Archangel were walking through the market, dressed in black hooded jumpers. The white hood and cloak that was used to be their disguise was now the only thing giving away their identity. Since they were taking some time off to recover, and owing to the fact that the spring festival had started and the city was in a state of peace, there wasn't much need for them to intervene in anything. Archangel was still walking with a limp, the injury he sustained to his hind leg healing slower than normal because he couldn't find the time to rest it. Since he and David were the least injured members of the team, they had taken it upon themselves to not only take care of the others, but to also train the four new recruits that had joined them, three ponies and one griffin.

#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

#107) So this isn't very easy for me to just come out and say to some guy I've never really talked to, but based on some of the answers I've read from you, you seem to know your stuff. You see, I have this really big problem right now. I seem to have a strange attraction--no, addiction, to Rainbow Dash. It's not a sexual attraction, it's a love attraction. The funny thing is I don't even like her personality. Well, at least in the show. The fan-fic versions of her are probably what tipped me towards her. But anyways, what I need is for some way, any way to get her out of my mind or something. I don't want to hate her, I just want to not be attracted to her. If you could help me in any way, I would be ever so grateful. Thanks much!
Answer: It's interesting that you make the point that your attraction isn't sexual, but is, instead, more platonic in nature. Having strong feelings for a TV character isn't as unusual as it sounds; a lot of people have crushes on charact

She gave me a travel bag just before I left, fully packed with everything I would need: train tickets, a map, compass, scarf, and satellite tracker. She warned me about that last on

"So tell me, Disconnection, what do you think of the surface?" Quite frankly, I'm shocked! This isn't like anything I've every been told. This place actually seems decent. Still, I'm curious as to why there is a sunlit sky in the first place. I thought the cloud barrier covered everything.
"It does," added Silver, sipping a glass of finely aged wine. How does he do that?! Can he read my thoughts? "Not really. Your face just tells me all I need to know." What?!

It's funny just how absurd the things you see around you may be. I am fairly certain the Ancients never predicted any of this, and would laugh in our face if we had the chance to tell them about our world. To think that alicorns were once respected and venerated as divine incarnations, a species of higher value. Nowadays, anypony could become an alicorn if they wanted to. Nopony cares anymore. Bathing in their pride and beauty, they often forget just how much sacrifice the Ancients had to go through to make this future possible.
These days, I feel like I am the only one who understands how hard it must be for the Princesses. They poured flesh and blood into building this kingdom, so many millenniums ago. One day, they were on top of the world, proud to stand guard over the land they built. Then, all of a sudden, the ponies cast them aside like they were nothing. Nopony cared about them having both wings and horn. Why would they? Anypony could, at just a simple payment away.

A gentle breeze came in through the open window. Next to it, a young mare swayed back and forth in a large, comfy bed. By her side stood a stallion whose figure remained cloaked by the darkness of night. He sat down by her bed and watched over her as she slept. Every once in a while, the mare would rub her belly and occasionally moan in pain. The stallion did not say anything. He knew he could not interfere anymore.
He walked over to the open window and looked up at the starry skies. A faint, white glow surrounded him for just a moment. It dissipated just a few seconds later. The stallion turned his back away from the window, and he faced the sleeping mare now. Between her belly rubbing and her moaning, she snuck in a couple snores in between every other breath. He smiled at the mere thought of what came next. He knew this would be her definition of peaceful for months to come. He knew this was just the beginning of something greater.

The crowds of people were especially large today. Obviously, today was the Eclipse Carnival; a special event when Luna and Celestia raise their appropriate stars together under the cheers and applause of the crowd. I was glad I could finally see it with my own eyes. I had been here before, many times actually, but was never able to experience it through functionning eyes.
Three years ago, I was completely blind by birth. I always had to rely on others just to guide myself. It was a frustrating reality of mine, but I had no other choice. This defect shaped my lifestyle; everything I did revolved around my faulty eyes. Over the years, I learned how to read somepony's emotions like an open book, just by their footsteps, which is very hard to do in extremely crowded places.
Everypony walks differently. It reflects one's emotions just as much as writing. Ponies who are in a rush tend to pace. Their hoofsteps clop louder than those of ponies on a casual stroll. Excitement usually leads to on

Twilight and Cross's magic continued to pulsate the Everfree Forest. The trees splintered their bark and the others held onto the trees, roots, rocks, anything to keep them anchored, all except for Karol Flame who was held down by her armor.

"She's right," Wolfbane agreed. "We'll get nowhere fighting each other, we need to learn working together or our mission to save Equestria will fail miserably!" She got off Rainbow and helped her up. "Sorry about that kick."

"Those were wise words Wolfbane." Twilight said, stepping up.

Princess Luna gave Karol Flame her rooming and getting some day rest herself, she set out in search of the pony known as Tina, The Element of Kindness. Luna traveled to a small beach house where the white-coated brunette in question sat in the sand. She was a unicorn pony with a paw print and moon on her flank as a Cutie Mark.
"Excuse me." Luna said from behind her. There was no response. "Um, are you Crescent Tina?" Luna asked again. Still no response. Luna was beginning to feel slight irritation, so she took an extremely deep breath and using her loudest Canterlot Voice screamed, "EXCUSE ME!!" She panted in defeat still having no effect on the unicorn. Luna adjusted her crown and stepped in front of the pony.
"Hm?" Tina looked up and gasped when she recognized the Equestrian Princess of Night. "You are Princess Luna!" The pony promptly bowed.
"Yes," Luna began. "Why did you ignore me?" She asked.
"I'm sorry, I can't hear you," Tina explained. "I'm deaf."

Welcome to Ponyville
The train continued on its way, carrying the seven ponies that would meet their counterparts. The entire way the incompatible ponies found something to argue about and were all a bit huffy by the time they were half way there. After some time on the train, the new Elements looked on and finally witnessed the picturesque but small town of Ponyville. The train stopped in the station and the ponies exited. They looked about the town and at the bustling ponies all around, this place was much brighter than most of their own homes.
"I like it." Joker said, eyes going 'derpy' to see all the colors.
"Stop that, it'll stick that way." Jojo said to him.
"Plus it's creepy." Wolfbane stated, whacking his head to straighten his eyes. The group of seven approached the Library.

Luna agreed and set off to Trottingham to find the next Element. Laughter. She was rather eager since she always has loved to laugh. Luna reached a flat in the town that everypony directed her to and knocked on the door. A blue colt in a turtleneck, glasses, and blonde mane and a computer Cutie Mark answered the door.
"Greetings, are you Joker Jokester?" Luna asked. The colt dropped his jaw, but then shook off his surprise.
"Princess Luna?" The colt asked. "Uh, no, I'm not Joker, that's my roommate." The blue colt showed Luna inside. "I'm Jumpdrive, I just keep his ideas straight, this is his room." Jumpdrive opened the door and ducked as a loud noise permeated the whole flat.
"What was that thunderous noise!?" Luna shouted.
"That was Joker." Jumpdrive said, removing his hooves from his eyes.

"This isn't working sister." Luna said sadly as she removed her eye from the telescope. She looked at her sister in dismay.
"I thought they would have a rough patch at first, but not like this." Celestia said, her head hung low. "Perhaps their Elements don't balance as well as I'd hoped."
"What do you mean?" Luna was again questioning her sister. "Are they not all the Elements of Harmony?"
"No." Luna's face showed shock and confusion. "The new Elements are not the Elements of Harmony. Remember I said that Harmony were not the only Elements."
"What are you really saying?" Luna began to worry. "What are my friends?"
"They are the Elements of Mercy, Bravery, Power, Wisdom, Insanity, and Intelligence." These were Elements that are dangerous alone with no balance, but the Princess hoped that Harmony would hold them together.

"Spike, what are you doing?" Twilight asked. "You didn't send the letter to Princess Celestia." She laid her quill pen in its ink well.

One creature, however, was busy as could be in the Ponyville library. The small purple dragon seemed to be pulling more than his fair share of weight, cleaning and organizing all of the shelves in the library. Not even the voice of a purple unicorn could stop him.
