MLP:FiM MKIV - The Waiting
(The waiting ends November 23rd (Though maybe not the thread))



About This Thread

This is the 4th FiM thread where we talk about a saturday morning cartoon with people who also watch that same cartoon and some that don't. If you wanna talk just post and we'll most likely respond to whatever it may be.


My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (MLP:FiM) is the 4th generation (G4) of My Little Pony (owned by Hasbro) TV show that began in late 2010, with FiM being written by Lauren Faust; who also wrote the Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Imaginary Friends, among several others.

This show is NOT to be confused with the first 3 generations of MLP from the 80's and 90's, which by comparison are bastardized monstrosities made to blatantly advertise Hasbro's toys and nothing more. With G4, Lauren Faust wanted to make a show that was not only entertaining for its young target audience, but their parents, too.

Of course, a lot of haters still exist because of ignorance, even the writers of the G4 show predicted ridicule. But hopefully whoever is reading this that isn't familiar with what this pony business is all about, will at least give it a chance. There is nothing shameful about liking MLP as it's a legitimately good show.


Soon after Season 1 was released, FiM was found to be so entertaining that people from a much wider demographic were drawn to it. Those who discovered the cartoon created threads about it on 4chan's /co/, and became a massive hit, with the show spreading it's way to the infamous random board, /b/. From there, the popularity of the show exploded. Ever since then, it's been constantly growing.

And that's how Equestria was made.


The Mane 6

Ripped from the old thread which was ripped from the FiM website:

For a unicorn who's new to the magic of friendship, TWILIGHT SPARKLE gets an "A+." She uses her magical powers to help her friends, and she's always ready to lend a helping hoof. Sometimes she gets on her high horse, but her love for her pals makes her a natural leader.
APPLEJACK is a country pony who grew up on her family's apple farm. She's down to earth and dependable, and she's not afraid to get her hooves dirty. To her, any job can be done with a little horse sense and hard work. APPLEJACK has a knack for figuring out how to fix a problem -- fast!
Graceful FLUTTERSHY has a special way with forest animals. Her favorite thing is to care for them in her quiet meadow cottage. That's because FLUTTERSHY is, well ... shy. She's sweet, soft-spoken, and kind of a scaredy-pony. Her friends love her for her kindness, and they work hard to bring her out of her shell.
PINKIE PIE is a free spirit who prances to the beat of her own drum. Actually, she prances to the sound of her own singing. She's playful and full of energy. She can talk till the ponies come home. She loves to invent silly songs, giggle, skip, and make her friends laugh.
RAINBOW DASH lives for adventure! Whenever there's a problem that involves danger, distant lands, and mysterious beasts, she's the first to help. She's bold. She's brave. She's also a bit proud and mischievous -- but wouldn't you be too if you were the fastest Pegasus around?
With her gleaming white coat and royal purple curls, RARITY is the most beautiful unicorn in PONYVILLE. And she knows it. After all, heads turn when she prances down the street. A talented fashion designer, Rarity loves to give the other ponies makeovers, and her dream is to design for PRINCESS CELESTIA.


The General Plot

The story begins with a unicorn named Twilight Sparkle who has been told by Princess Celestia, ruler of Equestria, to go find some friends as she is completely obsessed with her studying. From there onward she meets many new friends, confronts villains and embarks on many different adventures, whilst learning about the values of friendship and how to deal with all sorts of difficult situations in life.


Canon Seasons, Episodes and Livestreams

The episodes in MLP: FiM are mostly standalone episodes with a few story arcs that span across an entire season. Due to this, new members typically ask which episodes are the best to start with. While I would recommend starting at the very beginning and working your way through the seasons in chronological order, some others feel that this is not the best way to view the episodes since the beginning episodes can be quite boring. Here is a list of recommended episodes, most of which can be found on youtube:

Luna Eclipsed: Season 2 Episode 4.
The Return of Harmony: Season 2 Episode 1.
A Canterlot Wedding: Season 2 Episode 25.
Lesson Zero: Season 2 Episode 3.
Sleepless in Ponyville: Season 3 Episode 6.
Applebuck Season: Season 1 Episode 4.
Party of One: Season 1 Episode 25.
Note: All three seasons are available on Netflix!

New episodes are usually streamed live on The Brony Network. However, due to the season being over the livestream is currently inactive. The new season will not be starting until next winter.

First page!
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA
