"The successor to MyLittleAspergers and MLPAutismCentral. This channel is an archive for videos released in the public domain to be re-uploaded for educational/research purposes"
Great find! This channel has a ton of interesting videos, including some McDonald's Brony videos I've never seen before!
As for this video... what is it with bronies and Princess Luna?
We had almost a full year between Luna's first appearance at the beginning of season 1 to her second appearance early in season 2. In the meantime, the fandom had to invent a personality for her. (I mean, what are we supposed to do? Not write fan fiction of her?)
There were a few common themes. "Gamer Luna" was a common one, as was the childish "Princess Woona," inspired by her smaller size than Celestia.
One fairly common idea was that Luna was a bit out of touch after her thousands of years on the moon. She was socially awkward, and in need of education about how the world has changed.
And in "Luna Eclipsed" in season 2, that's exactly what she was.
For a whole year, Luna was basically a fairly popular fan-made character, and when she showed up again, she was exactly what the fans expected. Luna's appearance in canon validated some of the (fairly obvious) fan theories about her personality.
That's my take on it, at least.
This MLPAutismChannel has compiled plenty more brony evil. The rabbit hole is, indeed, endless.
So it's an autism thing? That makes sense. LUNA DID HAVE TROUBLE COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER PONIES, BEING OBLIVIOUS TO THEIR FEELINGS AND MAKING SOCIAL MISTAKES LIKE SPEAKING IN THE ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE. A pony whom autistic fans speculate to be autistic, who later turns out to actually *be* autistic, is bound to generate a diehard collection of fans.
I didn't start really following the show until Season Three, so I missed out on the early fan speculation re: Princess Luna. But I was pleased as punch when they finally gave Roid Rage some serious screen-time last week, so I imagine maybe the fan reaction was like that?
(speaking of which, *Bulk Biceps*? What the hell?! I'm guessing Bulk Biceps is a pseudonym that Snowfake adopted, because he was ashamed of his "real" name. That's my fanon explanation, at any rate.)
"Snowflake" was never intended to be his name, it was just something Spitfire called him in a 'drill sergeant breaking you down" kind of way.
Anyway, if we're going to talk about last week's episode, we need to talk about a certain pony's triumphant return. According to the people behind the show, she's here to stay. That's a major triumph for the show and the fans.
Regardless, his name SHOULD be Roid Rage. It's almost as bad as them trying to retcon Derpy to Ditzy Doo.
And yes, I'm glad our mail pony returned, too! My four favorite ponies are Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Roid Rage, and Derpy, so you can imagine my delight! The episode itself was a little weak - it felt like a rehash of Hurricane Fluttershy and Wonderbolt Academy, but without the Oomph of either episode. But it's still a great episode, and the background pony guest stars are sure to go into this season's highlight reel, alongside Flutterbat (which was the best thing ever).
My favorite episode this season is, by far, Pinkie Apple Pie. The combination of the Apple family's loving bond and Pinkie Pie's Pinkie Pie-ness made it the perfect storm of everything I love about this show. And that song! Apples to the Core is officially my favorite MLP song!
Flutterbat was aggressively adorable, and I sincerely hope we see more of her in the future. I mean, there's no way we won't.
Really? I found Pinkie Apple Pie to be sort of hard to watch. There's a lot of unspoken pain in Pinkie Pie's life, in regards to her family. She's quite clearly suffering from trauma issues, guilt, resentment, fear of abandonment, fear of criticism and rejection. So to see the pony with the least happy family life, trying to horn her way into the strongest, most supportive pony family... I dunno, but that's really, really sad.
And of course the writers just glossed right over the subtext, like they did with Applejack's dead parents. I know they did it because they don't want My Little Pony to get too "heavy" and depress children, but I think in this case, the silence just made the whole situation that much more terrible.
I've seen similar situations in my own life. Most of my friends have terrible family lives, myself included, but one of them, his family is very much like the Apples. They all work together, they all make an effort to stay in touch, and even when they fight, they never give up on each other. Last year, his parents threw him a birthday party, inviting all of his various cousins and uncles and whatnot - upwards of about fifty people, all from a close-knit, extended family unit. Anyway, I went to this party, and this guy shows up; a friend of a friend I'd seen a few times on the streets. He started talking about how great it was to see all this family togetherness; how he didn't really have any family, how his mom had just died of an Oxy overdose, how his stepdad was an abusive alcoholic and how his brother hated him and nobody spoke to anyone else unless drugs or firearms were involved. His aunt had shot his grandmother the Christmas before. But he didn't speak with bitterness, he just spoke with... longing. He spent that whole night being super-polite and watching my buddy's family like a cold, hungry hobo staring into a restaurant window. The look in his eyes, I'd seen it before, in broken soldiers and parolees fresh from prison. When he left, my friend made fun of him for being such a weirdo.
I guess my point is, fuck Pinkie Apple Pie. Stupid episode for jerks. :(
Also, I noticed that Apples to the Core was winning Equestria Daily's Best Song poll, but bump that, Bats FTW.
I'm sorry everypony, I didn't mean to say fuck Pinkie Apple Pie. It's not a bad episode, it just hits a bit too close to home.

ugh. Are we done with this stuff yet?
Rabbit hole works, too. Angel is an asshole, and he'd probably take perverse delight in creeping people out with stuff like this.

Maybe this is what poetv is for, but we've been beating this pony for what, over 3 years now? I think it's okay to move on to something else instead of rehashing the same old shit over and over. I'm just bored of it.
This whole pony phenomenon is clearly making some of you uncomfortable, which should be all the incentive people need to submit more pony videos.
Yes, pedos all over the website I frequent makes me uncomfortable.
Says the man whose DA is covered in pony art!
One day, meme, you will learn to live without hate, and on that day we will welcome you with open hooves.
JBF - We've laughed at furries for over ten years. We laugh at juggalos, TIs, otakus, otherkin, Republicans, feminists, conspiracy theorists, Christians, Wiccans, black people, white people, fat people, other users, and the French.
We get an average of one, two pony videos per week, tops. It's a fun topic; if it's not your cup of tea, you've got plenty of other stuff to do! And if it is your cup of tea, well, no one will judge you. You don't have to feel uncomfortable or ashamed of who you are.

haha. But, I guess you're right that it has quieted down some. It was getting to be 2-3 videos a day for a while. Most of them are uninspired more than anything. There is the occasional one that breaks new ground, but I think we've exhausted the humor of guys jerking off on pillows.
Long ago, I saw a link to a guy who was having those Real Doll latex-rubber sex-mannequins custom made to look like a dark elf from EverQuest.
I'd rather not soil my browsing history to look, but I wonder if they've expanded into the cartoon pony biz?
Oooh oooh I'l volunteer! BRB
You can get elf ears, vampire teeth and custom skin colours.
Also you can get shemale versions.
But no ponies or otters yet.
I thank those braver than I for furthering the cause of SCIENCE!
You might see if they have a "got a suggestion?" box. If they offer a reward for a lucrative idea, maybe it'll earn you a finder's fee or something.
I would suggest a strap-on Kuato with an oral fixation but they would probably call bullshit on me.

Why does she have human hands? Who in their right mind would be turned on by a pony with human hands that isn't Lyra? This person should be ashamed.
Bailing that, he sounds like Balki, so I'm hoping that there's another video of him doing the Dance of Joy with his pillow.
Furries. That's who. Ditto on the personalized collar that she'd never actually wear in the show.
Yes, furry bronies are a thing. And yes, furry brony cloppers should be ashamed, but no more so than your run-of-the-mill furvert.
Yeah, I like ponies and all, and I don't really mind humanized ponies (it's not my thing, but whatever), but ANTHRO ponies? Sweet Lords of Kobol. Furries ruin everything.
