Later, Trixie puts on her mostrar as planned, but her delivery is flat and unenthusiastic as a result of her falling out with Starlight; regardless, she intends to go through with the Moonshot Manticore Mouth Dive. On a nearby hill, Twilight and Saten (who's serprisingly serious this episode) approach the heartbroken Starlight and Twilight apologizes for trying to pick and choose her friends for her.

Saten: What about me?

Twilight: You?.. Oh right.. Sorry for not listening to you.

Starlight: But... what if Trixie really was using me just to one-up you?

Saten: People change. Look at my mom.

Twilight: He's right.. I jumped to conclusions.. She picked her words wrong.

At the very climax of Trixie's magic trick, Starlight returns to make it a success, and the audience loudly cheers. As the two take a bow, Trixie introduces Starlight as her "great and powerful assistant and best friend".


Backstage, Trixie and Starlight reconcile with a hug. Twilight enters to apologize to Trixie for not trusting her and to commend her for her performance. Trixie humbly accepts Twilight's apology and praise,...

ONCE TWILGHT AND SATEN FIND THE NEW FRIENDS:

Twilight Sparkle: Ahem? tu just decided to skip our cena without telling me? Are tu aware that, at this very moment, Princess Celestia is waiting for tu at a mesa, tabla with exquisite silverware placement?!

Starlight Glimmer: Yes, but—

Twilight Sparkle: This is exactly why I didn't want tu to make friends with Trixie.

Trixie: A-ha! tu still don't trust me! But guess what, princess? It doesn't matter if tu want to give me a segundo chance o not. Starlight had to choose between tu and me, and she chose me! Your pupil chose me, so ha! I win!

Saten Twist: (in head) I wish she didn't say it that way.

Starlight Glimmer (hurt): tu win? This was only to get back at Twilight!?

Trixie: Exactly! [beat] Wait! I mean, no! I got caught up in the moment. I like you. Beating Twilight is just a bonus. [gasps] Saying that didn't help, did it?

Starlight (in tears): I should've known. Nobody in Ponyville wanted to be my friend. Why would you? [runs off sobbing]

As Trixie shows Starlight to her wagon, Twilight appears to give Starlight friend alternatives, including Glaze, Vinyl, and limón Heart. Offended por Twilight's distrust and undue concern, Starlight says she wants to make friends on her own, and she storms off.

Twilight tries to chase her. But Saten Twist flies over, in one of his más serious moments, he expresses anger at her for trying to give Starlight alternatives to Trixie.

Tilight: Saten, please, this is seriou-

Saten: I mean it Twilight! If tu upset her, I'l-

Twilight: But I just think tha-

Saten: Trixie has a lot of trouble fitting in. Your not making it any easier for her!

Twilight: I..

Saten: Just leave them alone! (flies off).

Twilight pauses there.




Starlight and Trixie discuss Trixie's upcoming show, and Trixie seeks to perform the "Moonshot Manticore Mouth Dive", a dangerous magic trick previously only pulled off por poni, pony magician Hoofdini. She is nervous about attempting the trick por herself, but Starlight offers to be her stage assistant, giving her más confidence. Unfortunately,...

Twilight is seen pacing back and forth.

Twilight Sparkle: I'm trying Saten.I'm trying to be open minded.. But your girlfriend still isn't someone I trust.

Saten (puts drops in his bloodshot eyes from the weed): Well.. Just promise tu won't interfer.. Now aren't we suppose to inviting your gang for dinner?

Twilight: Oh. Right.. Thanks for the reminder.

Saten: Hey, without the boes, I'm smarter than people think.




PONYVILLE:

Starlight and Trixie out in the open.

cereza, cerezo Berry and Goldengrape: [unintelligible whispering] ...did tu see...?

[unintelligible whispering of varous ponies]

Trixie: Everyone always says they'll give tu a segundo chance, but deep down, they never forget..

Starlight Glimmer: That's what I'm worried about.

Trixie: [sighs]

Starlight Glimmer: What is it?

Trixie: I heard what Twilight dicho about me, and she's right. I wasn't very nice.. Saten, Derpy, and Glaze rubbed off on me in that way as well.. So I'd understand if tu didn't want to be friends.

EPISODE 1 part one

Twilight Sparkle: I dicho no magic. tu were supposed to do it por hoof so I could work in a friendship lesson.

Starlight Glimmer: Oh, I heard "set the table" and just kinda went for it.

Twilight Sparkle: Well, if tu hadn't used magic, you'd have heard me say, uh... this plate represents your head, this spoon is your heart, and the knives... are sharp! Always be careful with knives. [sigh] The metaphors make más sense when you're actually setting the table.

Starlight Glimmer: Should I... change it back?

Twilight Sparkle: I just want to make sure you're ready for this dinner. Princess Celestia will be joining us tomorrow night to see how the friendship lessons are going! Starlight Glimmer: If it's just you, me, and Princess Celestia, why are there four seats?

Twilight Sparkle: Well, the whole point is for tu to bring a new friend. That way, the princess will see for herself just how far you've come. And how good a teacher tu have.

John de Lancie is an actor who's worked in both live action and animated stuff.

Mr. Lancie voices Discord in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Discord was in a villain in the first episode he was in. However he was a más polite character in later episodes. For más information on that I recommend the documentary that Mr. Lancie was in. He was in a documentary called Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult fans of My Little Pony.

John de Lancie is one of the best actors of all time. His performance as Discord shows off how eloquent his voice is. It sounds like he's putting tons of effort into every sentence that Discord says. It's one of the most compelling, charming, fun, and fancy sounding voices that I've ever heard. John de Lancie deserves voice actuación awards for the amazing stuff he did with his voice.

Discord is my favorito! My Little poni, pony character. Discord is a major standout for his unique personality and fun loving antics. John de Lancie's voice adds so much charm to Discord. Frankly Discord's not that fancy looking, but John de Lancie's voice adds tons of eloquent awesomeness to Discord.

Pinkie's Ghost

It was a dark night, and there was lots of fog. Then, the ghost poni, pony was seen running through the streets of Ponyville. He was killed in an accident on Halloween, and every año on the día of the accident, the ghost poni, pony runs around ponyville, shreiking like a lost soul!

arco iris Dash: Pinkie, what are tu talking about?
Pinkie Pie: The ghost pony. Snips, and Snails saw it last night.
arco iris Dash: Where?
Pinkie Pie: They didn't tell me. Oh, it makes my legs wobble to think about it.
arco iris Dash: Ha! You're just a gullible pony. I'm not scared! *Flies away*
Snips: *Arrives with Snails*
Pinkie Pie: arco iris Dash didn't believe in your ghost.
Snips: Neither did I. It was only a pretend ghost story on television.
Pinkie Pie: Ach.
Snails: Ach?
Pinkie Pie: That's german for oh.

Later that night, Pinkie had to rush to the store to get más flour for Mr, and Mrs. Cake. She liked running in the dark, and was thinking of throwing a party because of this.

There were a decent amount of good films in 2017. One of 2017's best films is My Little Pony: The Movie. Although the film seems to mostly be appealing to people who are big fans of the mostrar I think that several people would get lots of enjoyment out of the film.

The film's plot may not seem super complex, but it does a great job of setting up fun adventure. The plot is about Twilight Sparkle and her best friends (Applejack, arco iris Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike) trying to save Equestria from the Storm King. The Storm King's henchwoman, Tempest Shadow, is trying to take the magic away from Twilight and the other princesses. The ponies travel to various places and meet other species including a cat, pirates, and other royals.



The reciente My Little poni, pony franchise sadly hasn't gotten some respect from people due to being about ponies. When I heard about this franchise it seemed to be too sweet and not really exciting. However the modern My Little poni, pony franchise and this film have a very meaningful amount of good feelings. The emotions in the film feel genuine and impactful instead of too kid friendly and boring. The film...

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a very popular animated show. This lista ranks all of the show's important characters as well as Sunset Shimmer from the Equestria Girls film series. In order to keep the lista from being too long characters that aren't relevant to the plot aren't included like Big Macintosh, Snips, Snails, and Trixie.

17. Princess Luna

Despite being a real popular character Princess Luna didn't stand out for me. Her personality, storylines, and dialogue isn't that interesting o memorable.

16. Scootaloo

Out of the three main Cutie Mark Crusaders Scootaloo makes the smallest impression and isn't that interesting.

15. Sweetie Belle

The Cutie Mark Crusaders in general aren't very interesting with one exception that's mentioned later in the ranking. Sweetie Belle is Rarity's sister and she acts similar to her. She's okay, but nothing that memorable.

14. Shining Armor

The 2017 My Little poni, pony animated film has a lot of characters. Some of the characters are from the mostrar and others are new characters. This ranking excludes background characters. The characters are ranked from least favorito! to favorite.

18. Princess Celestia

Celestia is my least favorito! character in the mostrar and my opinion on her in this film is pretty similar. She is a questionable mentor to Twilight and she easily gets defeated por Tempest Shadow. Considering that Twilight is way más heroic, helpful, and saves Equestria frequently why is Celestia still in charge?

17. Princess Luna

My feelings about her are similar to her sister. Luna just doesn't interest me as a character. I keep forgetting she's on the show. Like her sister she's not very helpful and easily gets defeated por Tempest Shadow.

16. queen Novo

queen Novo is nearly as bad as Celestia. She had a pearl that could of helped Twilight stop the Storm King, but she bans her from using it. In other words the world could be saved, but Novo won't take the "risk." Novo is a bad ruler.

My Little Pony: The Movie is a 2017 animated film that is based on the popular animated mostrar My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The film has the show's voice cast playing the main ponies and celebridades playing the film's new characters.

The Plot

Twilight Sparkle and her friends (Applejack, arco iris Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike) try to save Equestria from the Storm King. The Storm King had his parte superior, arriba sidekick (Tempest Shadow) get the world in danger and steal the princess' magic. The ponies are helped out por some new characters who become their friends.

Although this is a overly cute My Little poni, pony film the film's plot is actually really epic. The world is put in danger which makes this far más important ands epic than most My Little poni, pony stories. The characters' storylines may be predictable, but the conflict is awesome.

The Characters

Twilight Sparkle (as usual) is my favorito! of the main ponies due to being más important, interesting, and enfriador, refrigerador than her friends. Twilight's friends have forgettable roles in the film. Tempest Shadow's storyline is predictable, but at least she has a...

Alright, so, I know I haven’t publicado an articulo on this club for the last… Two years? But I felt like this was the best place to add it. Because I don’t want to post this on my club. Wouldn’t work well there. So, let me tell tu what I thought of the new My Little poni, pony Movie that got released. I So, I was dragged to this movie por my Brony friend as revenge for talking mad shit about Life is Strange (Terrible game, and I don’t care what anyone says), so naturally, being part of a revenge plot, I decided to watch it with him, and, honestly, it wasn’t half bad. I thought it was pretty good. But not a flawless movie. So why don’t I talk about what I liked about this movie first? And I will try to avoid spoilers as best as I can.

First off, I liked the new characters that were introduced. I liked the side characters, and I especially liked the villain. I enjoyed the cat character Capper. I enjoyed the gang of bird pirates. I enjoyed the Hippogriffs as well. The singer Songbird Serenade was…. There… But I felt that, out of all the new characters were the villains. I mean, yeah, Storm King wasn’t the worst villain I’ve seen. He was kind of just in the...

It was a lovely nice beautiful día in horse town and Pinkie Pie was skipping in the streets because she can't walk normally until a misceláneo gay thought suddenly popped up in her rosado, rosa head.

"I heard from somewhere that 1 in each group of friends is gay", Pinkie dicho out loud. "I hope it's Rarity, because Rarity's cute!" And with that she went to the marshmallow's 10-story house.

Rarity was eating raw onions (the ones with layers, the real kind™) until suddenly,,,

OK, so hear me out on this one. People have been wondering what kind of warriors we have now o then the ponies would be. This articulo here is my take and why it would be so. Of course, I will be prone to error with my reasons to my opinions, but they should be able to make sense in a way.

Without further ado, here we go!

Twilight Sparkle: Samurai

Why?: Twilight Sparkle is one of the most knowledgeable ponies around in Ponyville, as well as a loyal subject under Princess Celestia, who used to have Twilight as her student. The Samurai were knowledgeable as well, serving the daimyo with honor and valor. They were trained in armed and unarmed combat, learned short poems, and showed fierce loyalty to their leader. Twilight Sparkle should make for a good Samurai warrior. Just give her a kabuto and a wakizashi and watch her intellect turn into strength.

arco iris Dash: Greek Hoplite

Why?: As the athletic poni, pony of the Mane 6, arco iris Dash also proves herself as a loyal contender in the safety of others. And so it is with the Greek Hoplites, be they Athenian, Phocian, Spartan, o anyone else. They are proud, but...

-Yo Mama is so stupid, she tried to put the square block through Chrysalis' holes!

-Yo Mama is so ugly, when Discord saw her, he said, "That is too chaotic for my tastes."

-Yo Mama is so hairy, she makes up part of the Everfree Forest!

-Yo Mama is so fat, it takes a día for Pegasus ponies to fly around her!

-Yo Mama is so stupid, she thought arco iris Dash was made out of Skittles!

-Yo Mama is so fat, Starswirl the Bearded couldn't banish her to the human world!

-Yo Mama is so stupid, when King Sombra tried to get crystals, she gave him crystal meth!

-Yo Mama is so ugly, Pinkie Pie broke the fourth muro to get away from her!

-Yo Mama is so fat, when Tirek consumed her magic, he became obese!

-Yo Mama is so stupid, when she tried to make cupcakes, she put the cup in the cake!

hola guys. So a couple months hace I did an articulo on my link, as tu may recall. Well, since then there have been a couple big changes to my list, large enough that I felt it was worth re-doing. The format is gonna be pretty much the same as it was in the other one, and for some of the returning stories I'll pretty much just be copy/paste-ing my anterior thoughts. I would like to blame btflash for being the dork indirectly responsible for most of these changes. And here we go.

Notes: My Little poni, pony is owned por Hasbro and created por Lauren Faust. This is a story that I wrote for both Fanfiction.net and Fanpop. I hope that tu enjoy and comment.

Discord was walking around Ponyville, resisting his temptation to pull pranks on the residents of Ponyville. A building was being made to protect animales that didn't have anywhere else to live. It was Fluttershy's idea so Discord pretended to care.

Discord went to Sugarcube Corner.

Mr. Cake dicho "Hi. How can I help you?"

Discord dicho "I'm going to a important party and I got the job of ordering and picking up the cakes. I need tu to have 50 of your nicest cakes made por tomorrow."

Mr. Cake dicho "Are tu serious?"

Discord dicho "Yes."

Mr. Cake passed out.

Discord dicho "Is he okay?'

Mrs. Cake dicho "Yes. He passes out all the time. We'll try as hard as possible to get those cakes ready por tomorrow. Are tu sure tu have enough money?"
