I'm currently rewatching 7.02 All Bottled Up.
Fluttershy just said "I'm just glad to be with all of you" which immediately reminded me of this amazingly beautiful comic :heart:

RD: My turn! Cloudsdale attacks Manehattan!

Fluttershy: But I'm controlling Manehattan.

RD: It's the point of this game Fluttershy! I need to take Manehattan to win!

Fluttershy: But why? Can't we reach some sort of diplomatic mutual agreement? Is it because your citizens are hungry? I can send food for them? Or maybe money? A loan? You won't need to pay me back if you can't.

RD: ... I can't invade her ... she's too nice ... Cloudsdale attacks Appleoosa.

Applejack: Hey!

RD: Don't look at me, I'm just playing the game!

"I don't want Pinkie to be excluded and feel alone. All we want is to have fun together, right?"

Of course, such consideration is only reserved for ponies. If you happen to be a dragon who's shown endless loyalty, dedication, and support, you will have a very lonely social life.

I'm sure you had some very warm and tender feelings while writing this comic, but portraying the ponies I love as an ethnically-cleansed group that doesn't care if Spike is around (even going so far as to have Fluttershy call everyone but Spike her best friends) leaves me feeling cold. This is the kind of thing that's making the mane six harder and harder to like.

Are the ponies even aware that they're the only friends he has? Do they care?

Okay, I'm sorry, I have to have my say. Just because Spike isn't present in this particular comic doesn't mean he's being excluded from the group, especially on racial grounds, Spike has a social life outside of Twilight's library home, so it's quite possible that he's not even in the house, or maybe Spike doesn't even like Monopoly, many people don't like the game, and even if Spike was feeling excluded Twilight would pick up on it and do something, besides, how would Spike even play in the first place? Monopoly is for six players.

BoneSatellite Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013
Those are nothing but assumptions, and the same things could be said about any one of the mane six anyway. Regardless of whatever social life Spike has outside those ponies, they're still his closest friends, yet he's the one who is consistently excluded from the gang.

sonamy-666 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

So may assumption are nothing more than that, but your assumptions are pure facts? WRRROOOOOONNNNG!

My counterclaim has more logic than what you are saying, according to your comment Spike is being excluded because he is a dragon, so according to you the ponies are racist, a vibe that you d you alone has picked up from this comment. The only person that's bastardised the ponies here is you!

BoneSatellite Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013
I'm not droning on and on about any racist nonsense. It was more bitter sarcasm than a claim that the ponies are prejudiced (I do watch the show, after all). But it is smegging annoying that the character who's known Twilight longer, knows her better, and is more committed to her than anyone else - and is an outcast and an orphan to boot - is rarely seen enjoying the company of his closest friends. One could easily take this to mean that the companionship of the ponies' most unique and eager-to-please companion is less desirable to them than their more demographically analogous friends. More often than not, I frown over the likelihood that the majority of this pony-obsessed fanbase is content to think so.

it bothers you that much then be a damn man and take it up with the script writers for the show, you don't know how the social circle for the characters outside the show works, as a matter of fact from  what I see, Spike is in the loop enough.

I do, when possible, but I've never attended a convention and don't want to spam them with tweets. You got their emails for me, let's have'em. But from what we've seen in seasons three and four, they have already begun to realize how fckd up it is that he's so frequently left out.

The show writers are doing great for the most part. It's this comic (and similar products of a fanbase that's freaking high on ponies) that I have a problem with. All six of Spike's friends having fun without him is something I see too damned often, and it turns me off. That is what I think of this unfortunate little comic; I've stated my opinion, and you're doing jack squat to change it.

Now how the hell long is this exchange going to last? I'll let you have the last word as long as you don't say anything to provoke another response from me.

If you have a problem with the fanbase then why are you bothering us in the first place? Fact of the matter is you've over-analysed Spike's position in the circle of friends, which in spite of your depressing fantasy is actually very good and he's in the loop with the Mane 6, you wound yourself up and made yourself look like an idiot in front of everyone who takes the time to read the comments. You may not think you have, but that's how other people are seeing it.

Think about what you've been saying from the point of view of other people: You think that Spike is being discriminated against in the entire fanbase on the grounds that he's not playing a game of Monopoly! Also you have a problem with Fluttershy saying that she is with her very best friends, Fluttershy also considers Angel Bunny and a 500+ animals in her garden her friends, does that mean she's discriminating against them too? NO!

The artist didn't make the Mane 6 fascists, the bronies didn't make them fascists, you made them fascists, you created your own personal hell because you have problems with perception and delusion. You may believe I'm being horrid to you for my own troll enjoyment, that's also wrong, I'm being cruel to be kind. Your delusional ramblings have to stop, otherwise people are going to continue to make fun of you long after this comment.

Kind of sad that Spike doesn't have any other friends than them, but you can't just assume that, because he isn't in this comic, that everyone else is hating on him. He could easily be doing anything else (like you said in your response) and just isn't portrayed in the comic. The comic maker doesn't have to describe every detail around each situation. Maybe they invited Spike, but he didn't want to play or he was busy? Maybe they might not have asked, but we can't just assume the worst with incomplete information. This comic isn't really about Spike anyways.

But I do agree that they need some more canon Spike love in the show. He needs more in his life than being "the number one assistant". That's why I love the fandom when they make Twilight seem more like an older sister/mother.

I agree with your second paragraph, and halfway with your first. The comic may not be about Spike, but it's not specifically about Pinkie Pie or Rarity either. It's about a group of friends, and one of them is missing. One can contrive all sorts of reasons for his absence, but that doesn't change the fact that he's the only one who is consistently excluded from pictures, comics, and fanfics that feature all six of his friends. Why not do something with Spike and four or five of the ponies once in a while? It's always the "mane six", as if their friendship is defined by their status as Element Bearers and the evenly-balanced aesthetic they got going on.

I think I can understand that. However, I don't think that there is a much of a relationship between Spike and other members of the Mane 6 besides Twilight, Rarity, and Applejack (and that last one was a weird servitude thing). So there's not really much to go on by the way of Spike being friends with much of the mane 6. The sad fact, however, is that he DOES consider all of them his friends, if only by association with his closest friend: Twilight. Once again, I wish for more Spike getting friends in the future, but as of now, it's a sad truth that he isn't really close with many of them.

Also, when you talked about my "paragraphs", I laughed at how long I made my proposal! Did not expect them to be that long!

It's been demonstrated in canon that he doesn't get along with the CMC. Just as it has that the mane six are his closest friends.

Hopefully he's just babysitting the CMC to keep them out of the girls' manes while they think of ways to make up for spending quality time without him (that's what picnics, slumber parties, and Element missions are for).
