#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

#82) How long do you think "Friendship is Magic" will last for? What is a good amount of seasons? Honestly, I want it to go on until at least Season 8.
Answer: Season 8 is a stretch. This is really a two-part question. The first part is about how long I realistically think that the show will last, based on speculation and circumstantial evidence. The second is about how long I personally believe the show should last, which is a different matter altogether.
To engage with the first part, we know that the show at least has in front of it another 13 episodes. After that, more might be made, or the show may maintain its success based on repeats. I can't predict when the show will end exactly, but it's pretty much a given that when Hasbro update the toy-line again, the show will be replaced. It's impossible to talk about "Friendship is Magic" without discussing it directly in parallel to the toys, as they both run off of each other and help to sustain one another. There

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

Earth: December 20, 2012
Tom lay back in his couch and let out a sigh, breath laden in beer, eyes so heavy he felt the world champion bodybuilder would have a difficult time keeping them open. The moonlight streamed through the Venetian blinds, cascading across the television as he stared at it, the images of little cartoon equines flashing on the screen. He looked at the clock. 11:30. Late enough where he should have been in bed, yet early enough where he didn't feel the least bit drowsy. He cursed his many late nights in college, watching movies, playing drinking games with his friends. It was his own fault, such was the story of his life.
He looked to his right. A framed photograph, showing the grinning face of himself and his family. Wife, Ashley, and daughters, Kelly and Sandra. A smile slowly crept onto his face as he looked into his daughter's eyes. So pure and imaginative- what he'd give to see them again. Alas, one drunk driver and a flipped va

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.

Chapter 1: Pinkie of the Dead
Celestia’s sun slowly began its descent into the distant horizon, turning the sky a haunting red. Little foals, colts and fillies started to wander the streets of Ponyville, dressed in their most terrifying and impressive costumes. There were ghosts, and monsters, goblins and ghouls. There was even a little orange pegasus dressed as an Eagle, a white hood with a hooked beak and a set of brown feathers over her body. With her, there was a little white unicorn dressed up as a rock-star and a little yellow earth pony dressed as a buffalo, red and white paint streaked over her face and a large feathered headdress atop her crown.
“Scootaloo, why couldn’t you just pick a normal costume to wear?” Sweetie Belle asked her feathered friend.
“Because I’m trying to create a different image,” Scootaloo retorted.

Spike the "Hero"
The Crystal Empire was slowly becoming engulfed in a mass of threatening, black clouds; dark as the deadliest of storms. Screams could be heard all around as the crystal ponies began to panic. Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.
Twilight started to scramble within the crystal-walled trap, looking for the Crystal Heart with a set of panicked eyes.

Beads of cold sweat rolled down Rainbow Dash's neck. The hot ceiling lights above intensifying the anxiety she felt to such a point that she felt as though she was going to pass out. There she was, standing in the middle of Ponyville's largest store. Her eyes were wide, staring at the newest piece of fan-merchandise being sold.
No, it wasn't anything to do with the Wonderbolts.
It was a limited-time offer Daring Do wallet. Rainbow Dash had to keep her mouth shut to prevent drooling. The wallet was grey and had adventurer's face printed on the front, grinning competitively at some invisible foe. She was a force to be reckoned with, even as just a picture. Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.

"Happy Hearth's Warming Eve, Squirt"
The streets of Ponyville were empty, life gone off to celebrate the holiday. The air was chilled, indigo sky so dark even the most dim stars stood out like giant fireflies. The sides of the street were lined with a thin layer of snow. It was an unusually snow-less Hearth's Warming Eve. Still brisk in the air, yet too warm for snow to remain un-melted for too long.
Scootaloo slowly trotted down the empty road, head hung low and tail tucked between her legs- both out of depression and as a means to keep herself warm in the chilly night air. The gentle gust, persistent in its presence, made the filly's purple mane flicker.
She lifted her head, her set of violet eyes looked left, then right. Nothing but darkened shops and illum

The day was dreary and dark. The landscape devoid of lush life, replaced with jagged rock and twisted trees, branches like arms outstretched. The calm bluish-grey day hidden behind a veil of dark grey and thunder, yet neigh a drop of rain fell from the sky.
The lone figure of a pony hid behind one of the many trees, her face mostly hidden behind the black fabric of her outfit. Her orange eyes darting around. She was focused, determined to accomplish her mission.
"Now to find a way to sneak into the castle." The filly, Apple Bloom, muttered. Her country drawl clear even if her mouth was hidden behind the black fabric. She gazed up towards her destination. A large, gothic castle perched high atop the mountain, towers rising up to end in cone-like roofs. Fire

Darkness was all around her. She would hardly be able to make out her front hooves, only catching the slightest outline of their shadowy form, and that was when they were placed directly in front of her eyes. Her room felt small, the walls expanding around her as she pulled the blankets further up her body so the fabric brushed lightly under her chin. But the snugness didn’t scare her quite as much, for at the moment she wasn’t alone.
Sitting in a small chair beside her was Spike. His claw was gently resting on her hoof as he sang at a low voice.
“Some days feel like the rain will never stop,
when pain will sting the heart.
Some days feel like all hope is lost,
even if a light is in the dark....”
He paused and laughed, massaging his throat. “Sorry if my voice isn’t doing this song justice. It’s more difficult than I thought it would be.”

Not only was this stallion her boyfriend's new Guardian ad Draco, he was likely going to stay in town indefinitely, and might need to make a few friends.
There were plenty of suspicions that Comet was sent to replace Twilight. Which was certainly a disturbing thought to the young unicorn. It meant the Princess actually thought Twilight was replaceable. To think any of them could be easily replaced gave her chills.

Twilight bolted from the library, her horn pulling the door closed behind her.
As she ran straight toward Applejack's farm, her thoughts were racing. What went wrong? Was it another attack? A landslide? Did somepony die...again?
Spike was clinging to her neck for dear life, as worry overtook the young unicorn.
Eventually, the two arrived near Sweet Apple Acres, and Twilight slowed to a crawl.
On both sides of the path, where there were once dozens of Apple Trees, now stood nothing but tall black pillars.
The fence that once ran along either side of the long dirt road was now nowhere to be seen, and the ground was covered in ashes.
Twilight was speechless. There were no words to say. No words she could say. As far as she could see, there wasn't a single survivor, the entire orchard was incinerated. Her best friend's business and livelihood was destroyed, overnight.
Why was she here?

And most importantly..

It started out like any other day, except for the fact that I finally was going to live on my own, in my own house. I found a house isolated in a forest, not another house for miles. I have been there before, looked it all over already, and it is really nice, it has a second story, an attic and a basement. It is my dream home, in the forest, no city noise, just me the outdoors.
My parents were tearing up when I was packing up, but I knew it was high time I set out on my own, I mean I'm twenty for god sakes. They tried to get me to stay they tried every trick in the book, including telling me it was haunted. I laughed and said, "Sorry Mom and Dad, but that's impossible no one has died there." They both insisted that it was true, but I kept pushing the thought away. I hated to see them like that, so as soon as my stuff was in the moving company's truck, I got in my car and went to my new house.

"Time to wake up Vova..."
Vova Lights, the unicorn to set a record for most alcohol consumed at a party, groaned, muttered some barely audible words, then simply shifted a little. She had no desire to wake up, on account of the head-shattering headache she was experiencing.
The worst part was that the cyan mare never had alcohol before, evidenced by the vomit currently in the toilet.
Which also means she had never experienced a hangover before.
"You must get up, you still need to pack your things." A familiar voice insisted to the miserable artist.
"I don wanna...." The unicorn whined.
"Ugh. You are worse than Vinyl." The mare's voice replied in frustration.
"Hey I'm not THAT bad!" Another mare's voice argued. One that Vova presumed to be a certain DJ she knew.
"Yes you are, now help me get her up."
"I don't wanna."
The cyan unicorn could hear the audible face-hoof, as she attempted to resist the urge to kill herself due to the massive hangove

Welcome to Ponyville.
Vova Lights, the ex-premier painter of Canterlot's art world, stared out of the window of the train towards her new home.
She wore a troubled look as thoughts of the one responsible for her fall ran through her mind.
Curse him. Why did he do it?
She had been on her rise of fame, until her manager turned on her, and took everything while she was left with nothing.
Fortunately for her, one of her best friends, Vinyl Scratch, and her marefriend, Octavia, offered to let her stay with them in Ponyville.
She packed everything she had, her easel, her paint, and her toothbrush.
That was it. She had nothing else. Except, well, for the pink, star-shaped, hair clip that she always had pinned on the right side of her head. The clip rested in her pink, with streaks of far lighter pink, mane. Her mane was fairly short, and messy. Her tail was messy as well, and normal length. Also it had the same coloring as her mane. Her coat was th

He wore his normal business suit, and looked like he was tired. But seeing me, and Mom, seemed to make him feel refreshed.
"Hey sweetie, how was work?" My mother asked, as she gave him a hug.
He gave her a weary smile, then replied, "It was tiring, but better now, thanks to you." He then picked me up, (I wasn't very big, seeing as I was only five years old.) "And Zach here."
I giggled once more, and hugged him.
