Shoot. You can just go to the profile on here and then go to my albums to see them, then.

My albums might be private, as well... I gotta check.

Those ripped sprites reminds me of when I had Luna on my screen. I had to hold back a little squee whenever she would start bouncing, because I found that to be one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. During that time I also had Derpy and Octavia on my screen. Think I might have had them on my screen for a good two-three days, actually.

K, I found them. I really like the flying Rainbow Dash, but they're too big for what I want. =/

I found a good pinkie pie that I think I'm going to use.

Yep! Those are the same sprites used for the Desktop Ponies. xD;
I should turn those on again. o3o
They're pretty fun to have around. :D

Also, with the whole "Brony" thing...
I personally think that the word just refers to fans of the show. It applies to both male and female.
People seem to take it the wrong way, simply because of the fact that it has "Bro" in it.
/hoping nobody takes this in an offensive way, because none is intended :<

EDIT: Oh, and I completely agree with Astinus about the thing with the older fans. Then again, I hear that most of the older fans enjoy G4, like most of us. It also must be irritating, since most bronies dislike the older generations in someway. Must be really depressing for them.

    -Favorite Episode: The Cutie Mark Chronicles, no doubt.
    - Favorite Main Pony: I like them all!
    - Favorite Side Pony: DJ PON-3~!
    - About Me: I started watching the show when my sister did (Around early summertime this year) and I absolutley love the series. I get teased about it sometimes, but I honestly don't care. My Little Pony is just too awesome to handle for them.

    I don't see it that way at all. It was first created to refer to the male fanbase and that kind of disappoints me because, as was already posted, the whole term on its own is ignoring the female fans just by having "bro" in it. I don't want to be part of a definition that wasn't meant for me in the first place.

    When someone asks you how the term "brony" was created, people will tell you it's combination of "bro", referring to males, and the word "pony." When that person asks you why such a word also includes older female fans, you'll just shrug and say that's how it is. Because the female fanbase is apparently not important enough to warrant its own name, we have to stick with the term "brony" which doesn't really fit us to begin with. Plus, the staff of the show even recognized this word as referring to the male fanbase in the song Equestria Girls.

    I just don't feel like I, as a female, belong under that definition even if the meaning was altered.

    No offense taken, and no offense intended either. This isn't geared at anyone at all; I just wanted to speak up! To each their own :3 In fact, from typing this I realized I'm not even the nickname type. I'd rather just be called a fan of MLP: FiM, nothing more. A female-oriented term doesn't really interest me in any way.

    Well, I tend to call my sister "bro", or "man" at times. xD;
    Dunno if that means anything, haha.

    Anyway, now I completely understand. I sorta assumed females just didn't like the term because of "bro". o3o
    But yeah, I wouldn't want to be called something of the sort, if there was some fanbase with a majority of girls. So yeah, I understand.
    Instead of using "Brony" or "Pegasis" or whatever, some people just call the fanbase "Ponies". xD;
    I actually kinda like that.
    It's much easier than saying "fans of MLP", or anything. xDD;;

    EDIT: Oh, and welcome RobotUnicorn! :D

    Welcome RobotUnicorn. Welcome to the herd.

    I found some My Little Pony fruit snacks while at the store today, but the art was all Gen 3-3.5 and not Gen IV, so I didn't buy it. If it was Generation IV, I would've bought it.

      Well I agree. "Brony" was NOT COINED from the root word "Brother". In fact it was coined from 4chan's '/b/'. Users of /b/ refer to each other as /b/rothers as a reference to the sub board of 4chan. NOT BASED ON GENDER STATISTICS!

      The meaning was never altered, it was just never understood properly.

      As such I feel like terms like "Pegasister" are depreciated. If you really MUST use a gender loaded term, just use "Filly" as the Equestria Girls video does.


      But I really don't like seeing women set themselves apart from the guys just because of a word...it's just counterproductive to the purpose of the fan community anyway, which is overwhelmingly supportive of all of it's members as well as completely ignorant to things such as gender and more.

      To call oneself anything but a "Brony" when being a fan of MLP Gen 4 simply sets you apart from the fanbase, and that really isn't productive. Besides, the word 'Pegasister'? SO UGLEH. If you're using gender based pronouns, just use things like Filly, or Pony if you want to be gender neutral.

      Tomorrow is a pretty special day. Well, in our timezone anyway. Who can guess? Anyone? Nobody?

      It's the Anniversary for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Yep! One whole year since it started and one whole year since Twilight arrived in Ponyville and Luna returned.
      So I drew a little picture for the occasion.

      Spoiler:


      Just a topic question.

      Has anybody got anything planned for Monday?

        Fantastic fan-art you found Yoshi-san, as I try to find more Applejack wallpapers but I can only find a few.

        And tomorrow will be a day to remember!

          - Favorite Episode: Party of One
          - Favorite Main Pony: Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy
          - Favorite Side Pony: Princess Luna
          - About Me: When I first discovered the series, I said to myself "Why on Earth do so many people like this show?" and then I decided to watch an episode to find out why everyone liked it so much, eventually, I became a brony after watching so many episodes.

          Nothing much... I'm bored either way. (I'm going to rewatch every episode of the show again for the fourth time.)

          Looks like there's going to be another gap from Episode 4 (w/ Luna) to Episode 5 of a week.

          I'm personally looking forward to the remastered opening theme. xD;
          Seeing even a bit of change will be fascinating. :DDD

          Also... Fwee~
          I didn't put that picture here, simply because of it's size. xDD;;
          I was actually a part of this collab. I drew that Bon-Bon sitting on a pillar around the right. :D
          If any of you guys can be bothered, you can still join in. It's going to be updated until Friday.

            I really hope this next episode is good, as I would not be happy if the season started out badly.

            Well, the "start" of Season 2 is this upcoming episode, but the 2-parter with Discord is the real start of Season 2, and with those episodes, the season started off nicely and should be good for the rest of the season.
