It was inevitable, really. Alright motherfoxtrotters here's a pony thread so you can talk about marshmallow animals and doo-doo.
The main reason I'm posting this now: Season 3. Season 3 of MLP:FiM will premiere Saturday, November 10th (tomorrow, you dummies) on the Hub channel, at 10:00 AM EST. This is pretty much a big deal. There's gonna probably be a ton of places livestreaming the episodes if you don't have cable.
So let me get this straight: There's this character out there with a red mane and a dull yellow coat. At some point he/she finds a pair of friends who are outcasts according to their peers, and said protagonist joins in their circle of trust. Later on this character seeks council on his/her purpose in life and how to go about it in a remote location. This mentor being seeked is a lone, wise alchemist. He's is a prairie creature that would normally live in the jungle, or is it the other way around? -Either way that alchemist has black and white fur and lives in a giant tree.
I think Applebloom's father was probably trampled to death by a herd of wildabeasts.
