>>4156>May our pony family last ten thousand years
That's really ambitious. I wonder what it would look like if it actually lasted ten thousand years.

You guys probably didn't, and I wondered if I was clogging the catalog with (potentially) another thread. But I posted anyways for the purpose of two reasons.
The first is that I make "hello" threads on here every once in a while to see how everyone's doing, and it's been a good while since the last one.
And I'm just an old friend of Moony's, like he says. We've known each other since the earliest days of the show, back when we were regulars on another pony imageboard. I followed Moony here after I became disillusioned with the other ones, because this place captures the spirit of the early fandom. And since the show has ended, I wanted to thank everybody for everything. I hope I'm not bothering you guys.

I'm generally pretty satisfied with FiM at this point.
9 seasons is certainly a good run.
Course, I have yet to see any of season 9. I haven't really been enthusiastic about MLP since sometime between seasons 6 and 7. Season 8 kinda started out with a bit of a thud for me and I lost interest partway through.

I’m certainly a bit depressed over the fact that the show has ended, but I’m also happy that it got to end on such a positive note.
And I’d also like to remind everyone that this site isn’t going anywhere, places like fimfiction and derpibooru aren’t going anywhere, the fandom isn’t going anywhere, nor are most of the fans that’ve stuck around this long. The show dies but the fandom lives on in us.

Very satisfied with that ending. Can't please everyone, but I thought it was epic (the two parter) followed by lovely (the epilogue)
I watched the final credits roll 3 hours ago and it's still not sunk in. Been one hell of a ride.

i'm pretty heartbroken, but i know i'll live
i really wish Gen 5 would come faster, so there was less time for people to lose interest
when the last pony-friend i have gives up on pony.. well, maybe then i'll start contemplating whether my life has meaning and all that
but for now, there are still people around me that love ponies, and there will be for a long time

Don't feel too bad. I pretty much dropped out after the end of Season 3. Twilight becoming a Princess was what started my disconnect from the show, and seeing the CMC get their cutie marks in some rando episode (and not in a movie, season finale, etc.) was the final straw. I stopped watching entirely then. Save for the series finale, of course.

tomorrow, now i must rest
Such a long time till G5. At least we get plenty of time for any rewatches etc and those conventions that can still be bothered to run seem popular still so the fandom doesn't look likely to disappear any time soon. (To be fair, I wouldn't want to run a con either, it takes a special kind of masochist to organise things like that, and understandable they get burned out, run out of volunteers and say 'no more') >>4184
Could be worth a try still.
The princess thing was largely because the show was originally meant to end pretty much the way it did, but back in season 3. Hasbro had already done all the toys etc then decided at the last minute to ask the show to continue on so we got that weird last minute semi-rewrite and now uh, two coronations. But if you ignore all that really you get used to it. I know some got really mad about it but honestly most did just get used to it if they persevered. Aside from one self referential episode where she's like "what the hell am I even a princess for?" it's largely ignored until the last few eps and is just the same character with wings.
Worse things happen (*mumblelibrarymumble*) but not a lot of bad.
To each their own but I liked the CMC episode being random as then it was a complete surprise (if you hadn't seen leaked spoilers). Oh how my jaw dropped. One of my favourite episodes - that reveal and song at the end made me cry more than the finale.
The show does go through a bit of a pain point IMO around season 5/6 with the weird ways of trying to shake things up and attempting to shoehorn a new character in with seemingly no plan of what to do with her (the fact she got all but ignored in the finale says a lot) but after the movie came another major change that seemed utterly ridiculous and yet worked really well IMO, introduced 6 great new characters and several more besides, and gave the show a much needed shake-up.

Already broke down about the show ending. Still not coping well. But at least my misery has given me new appreciation for sadness.
To everyone who thinks the fandom is going to die along with the show.

Maybe now I'll get over my creepy obsession of Fluttershy.

I know of a man who once hotglued a Pinkie Pie.
If you can keep below that standard and remain romantically and fantastically involved with Flutters, it would be lovely.
Well this is apparently a thing that's going to fill the time while we wait for G5.

So they're giving MLP:FiM the Teen Titans GO! treatment?
As long as it's called G4.5 and not G5 then I'd be cool with it.

In what I guess is a promotional picture he looks normal, though it looks like they took his wings away.
Still not sure how I feel about this.
On one hand it looks like the "Teen Titans Go!" treatment. Lazy writing for half laughs and merchandising.
However the flat dimensional design, colouring and lineart reminds me of retro Cartoon Network cartoons like Dexter's Lab or PowerPuff Girls which also used similar background designs which compliments the cartoons.
As for Spike with no wings, not surprised given he is a wingless dragon in the original series as well as The Princess Promenade and The Runaway Rainbow.

For a true dragon, yeah.
He can still be a dragonoid, though.

Drakes're drakes. They're a dragonoid, but not a true dragon.
You might still call them a dragon, in so far as they belong to the 'dragon' genus, but, they are not 'true' dragons.
