Dude . . . for whatever reason that pic of yours is blocked. It won’t even let me cut and paste it into my browser. It’s either porn or infects the viewer’s computer with a virus.

I understand what you are saying Zionist Conspirator, and I agree.

That is why Friendship is Magic is one of the very few TV Shows I let my daughters watch. Its fun, simple, and safe (its also interesting, unlike the other incarnations of MLP)

I think that is the Reason why the Show has taken off like it has (have you seen the ratings for the season two finale? Wow!) People want wholesome entertainment, and that means no Homosexuals, I.E. Shoehorning in a Gay Crew Member in Mass Effect 3.

Besides, Cupcakes wasn't so bad........

My adult teen daughter has recently become somewhat re-interested in my little pony, after getting rid of all her ponies.

WOrse, my teenage son is into the show now, watching it online all the time. BTW, I will point out that the show is hilarious, and as a humor show is clean, positive, and much better than most of what kids could waste their time watching on TV. OK, that’s a small consolation, but still.

Funny story. My son was on a school trip for robotics, and had his own food so he didn’t go with the guys for dinner. One guy came back to the hotel room early, and caught my son on the computer, watching “My Little Pony” episodes. The kid asked what he was doing, and my son for a minute thought it would be less embarrasing to say “watching porn”.

For the record, I prefer his choice over that alternative. And also it seems no more useless than his watching YouTubes of other kids playing video games. Or me re-watching the entire “Quantum Leap” series.

I think one of the big disasters of our society is how many ways we have found to waste our lives

No, it's just a horror story. What's bad is that the canon Pinkie Pie from the show came to be almost universally identified with the Pinkie Pie in that story. Every video and pic of her was accompanied by comments about how dangerous and evil and psycho she was. There were even attempts to fit it in to the series itself, using the episode you reference as the time she started to lose her mind.

First, the idea that Pinkie has a separate personality named "Pinkamina Diane Pie" is purely fan convention. On the show itself she has no such split personality. "Pinkamina Diane Pie" is simply her full name (the only time she is addressed by that name on the series she already has her "happy" poofy maned look). She gets grayer and her mane and tail flatten when she's depressed. But there is no split personality. And in the episode in question she was merely sad and angry about being "betrayed" by her friends. She wasn't even contemplating doing anypony any harm. Come on, people!

For another thing, the Pinkie in "Cupcakes" isn't depressed Pinkie at all, but happy poofy haired Pinkie. That's what makes it such a horrific fic.

Personally, I blame the "evil clown" thing. Pinkie's just too happy to accept on her own terms, so she must be some sort of terrible monster. It's this that I object to, and it's this protectiveness that has made her my own personal favorite among the Mane 6 (even though I'm nothing like her myself).

Someone with artistic talent needs to draw a pic of "Pinkiewise the Dancing Clown" with the "dead lights" in her eyes as she opens her mouth to show all those horrific pointy teeth.

You don't have to explain that stuff to me Zionist.....

I already know.....

The Staff of FIM knew about "Cupcakes" but went with the story anyway, I think as a reference too it.

That is why we can't have nice things, like Rule 34, "Make it sexual". Your show has a nice, Upbeat charcter!? U MsUt bEa cRAZi!!!!!!

They have been doing a ton shout out to the fans lately, hell the last scene of the Season Finale alone has so many the fandom is still finding them.

Overtime I have analyzed the Main Chanters Personalities

With Rarity you have the "Fashion Character" which there is in all shows aimed for girls. Rarity isnt a shallow, self centered, rich appearance obsessed girl like all other characters under her category. shes and artistic and clever drama queen, with a hint of OCD. She is someone girls can actually aspire to be if they are lovers of clothing and fashion.

Pinkie Pie- My suspicions were correct. Pinkie pie is the most unstable of the group. A harsh Amish upbringing with little socializing. This leads her to be needy and emotional and wanting to be the center of attention. Hence her parties. If they had continued to ignore her for another day, Pinkie would have started kidnapping people and saying "Love me or I'll CUT YOU".

Fluttershy- Has rejections issues based on the lack of self esteem.

I am still Figuring Out Twilight, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash.

As I said, I don't see any connection between that episode and "Cupcakes." There's no depressed, flat-maned Pinke in cupcakes. And while Pinkie was certainly a little "out of it" after thinking her friends had betrayed her, she wasn't remotely dangerous or evil. The worst thing she contemplated was not inviting her "former" friends to any more of her parties. There's still a gulf between that and "Cupcakes" (which, as you pointed out, predated the episode).

I have no objections to horror fan fictions. My objection was solely to the identification of the character in the fan fiction with the canon character on the show.

They have been doing a ton shout out to the fans lately, hell the last scene of the Season Finale alone has so many the fandom is still finding them.

There are some fan conventions I would never want to see as "shout outs."

I agree with your assessment of Rarity. It's unusual to see such a character portrayed in a positive light in a "girls'" cartoon in our feminist-dominated age.

Pinkie Pie- My suspicions were correct. Pinkie pie is the most unstable of the group. A harsh Amish upbringing with little socializing. This leads her to be needy and emotional and wanting to be the center of attention. Hence her parties. If they had continued to ignore her for another day, Pinkie would have started kidnapping people and saying "Love me or I'll CUT YOU".

I agree with your point about her upbringing and her need for attention, but I disagree profoundly with the idea that Pinkie would ever harm anyone or anything. To say this is to read a fan fic character into the show.

BTW--how many contemporary cartoons have had portrayals of Amish?

Nothing was better than the Sweet, Sweet smell of Fan-fiction burning after the Luna-Halloween Episode, ah, I loved it how her Canon self with nothing like the Fanfics!

You are Correct, I must admit my Girls found the Show because of my Niece, I asked my Sister about the show and she said it was good, but she told me about this thing called "Cupcakes" that had been written about it. I checked it out (almost made me sick to my stomach, which few Writings can do) so I guess my perception of Pinkie has been colored from the very beginning by the FanFic.

BTW--how many contemporary cartoons have had portrayals of Amish?

Why MLP FIM has of Course!

You are so defensive that it makes it pretty clear to me that being a bonie or whatever is perverted.

Nobody ever says, “I’m an auto mechanic. Live with it or get bent.”

See what I mean?
