While I still have you here, I would like to remind you to please follow the rules at all times.

Thing that are generally discussed here:
– Episodes of Season 7
– Reactions
– Characters
– Animation
– Analysis
– Theories
– Speculation

I request that you refrain from the following:
– Using external factors to talk. That includes writers’ opinion, writers’ track record, fandom opinion, ratings, etc. This thread is for you to express your opinion, what you think about the episode and why you think so based on what happens in the episode.
– Policing opinions ("Stop thinking that.") We are here to discuss our opinions in a civilized manner, do not silence another just because you disagree. Speaking of…
– "You’re wrong". "No, you’re wrong". kind of talk. Be a reasonable individual, and use episode/character analysis for your rebuttal.
– Insulting others for their opinions. People are going to disagree with you or not see something the way that you do. And that is ok. Feel free to argue and defend your viewpoint, but do not berate others for not seeing things exactly your way.
– Bringing your baggage with you. Drama is going to happen. Episodes, moments, or characters can be so polarizing that heated debates and yelling can seem inevitable. While we can’t exactly prevent that, there are things we can control. You are not going to get along with everyone, and that’s fine, but this is episode discussion, not a soap opera. If you have some sort of issue with another user, do not bring that attitude here and disrupt the flow of conversation. Take it up in PMs or the mods if necessary.
– Anything that isn’t episode discussion. We get it, discussion can take us from one topic to the next, but we don’t want to constantly derail conversation.

@Magma_ERuptiOn
Yes they can, it’ll just be like Dr. Wily.

You see her over and over again, but suddenly, what’s this? A new villain? Nope, just Chrysalis in disguise.

Aren’t you getting a little ahead of yourself making this thread less than an hour after the leak of the last episode came out? I mean I know season 7 is most likely coming in spring but c’mon dude this is just a little bit ridiculous. =P

It was aired earlier than it was intended to and was aired after the actual finale was, it might not technically be a leak but it was still totally a leak. :I

@PonyPon
Fair enough I guess.

Also, is it just me or does my background pony number sound like a porn parody of the fall of the roman empire?

Alright, so assuming that there’s going to be three more map episodes, and they’ll still be duo episodes, 9 more combinations left to do. Consulting my chart…



We have…

TwiPie
TwiJack
RariLight
ApplePie
FlutterPie
AppleDash
RariDash
FlutterDash
Flarity

We used
TwiShy
TwiDash
PinkieDash
RariPie
RariJack
AppleShy

Amusingly enough, Pinkie has been the first and Twilight has been the last to be called by the map both seasons.

Huh, not sure I want to see that creepy image on top of the first post each time I come.

I’ve already brought up my expectations for S7, but to reiterate: I want to see the core principles of those living in Equestria challenged, poke holes in a system which clearly is heading more and more towards benefiting powerful ponies at the cost of everyone else, equine or otherwise.

I’m not asking for anarchy, much the opposite since that’s where we’re heading at this rate. I’m asking for the series to evolve past it’s "Colorful Utopia" roots and finally develop some depth instead of taking it away in the name of an hyper-controlled society featuring the thought police "Friendship Brigade" somehow not being seen as oppressive. Suspension of disbelief only goes so far, it’s time for that bubble to burst, and for ponies to realize, "Hey, we’re kinda living in an incredibly flawed society, maybe it’s time to change".

Here’s a list of things I want to see in S7 (That’ll probably never happen):
~A sign that the EQG movies are canon (Such as showing us which part of Twilight’s Castle the mirror is located).
~Fewer OOC moments.
~More episodes of Rainbow Dash with the Wonderbolts (I’m sorry, but "Being a jerk to others" and "Pulling pranks on friends" does not promote good character development…at least to me.).
~Less screentime for Rainbow Dash in episodes not about her(Reason being that I looked at the official Blue Angels schedule for 2017, and it was packed. If the `Bolts’ schedules are similar to that, RD wouldn’t have enough time to "Chillax" with her friends.).
~The Mane Six (especially Dash) actually exhibiting some militaristic traits, such as standing up and fighting back against enemies, instead of being defeated so easily.
And most importantly…
~At least one of the old writers making a comeback.

That’s all I can think of ATM. If I suddenly think of any more, I’ll update this post.

EDIT: No more trying to mimic HotiggedyDemon’s or John K’s art-style. I don’t care how funny the target (And non-target) audience thinks it is; this style of MLP animation should only be used for parodies, not actual episodes.
