    Hi, I'm Back! Two Questions...

    1. Are there any new episodes of MLP G5 planned for this year?

    2. Are there any trailers for them? Sorry, I've been out of the loop a bit due to 'external pressures'... :trixieshiftleft:

    Just watched the movie... (SPOILERS)

    And it was better than I thought it was gonna be. :moustache:

    The characters had distinct and interesting personalities, the jokes were mostly good and even the songs were catchy ear worms. :pinkiegasp:

    I look forward to seeing where they'll take G.5 next! And plans for a whole series yet? :trixieshiftleft:

    Couple of issues with the ending, though:

    Hi there! Just a couple of quickies (Most MLP Gen 5 related)

    So, this 'MLP A New Generation' is a thing, huh? And the movie is being released to stream on Netflix next month?

    Let's take a look at the main cast, shall we?

    It's been seven years since I joined fanfiction...

    Nah, this isn't one of those blog posts where I blurt at the top of my lungs 'I LOVE YOU GUYS!!' :derpytongue2:

    That ain't my style, and besides I am English don't you know. We're all masters of restraint. :ajsmug:

It's been seven years since I joined fanfiction... · 7:36pm Aug 3rd, 2021

Nah, this isn't one of those blog posts where I blurt at the top of my lungs 'I LOVE YOU GUYS!!' :derpytongue2:

That ain't my style, and besides I am English don't you know. We're all masters of restraint. :ajsmug:

Instead, I'd just like to offer a simple 'Thank You' to everyone who ever supported me on this site, whether it be by reading one of my many stories (more than 140 at last count, WOW) or tolerating my infamous snark on one of the various comment sections. You're all good, good people and I only wish you the very best. :pinkiehappy:

Here's to the next generation of MLP, and beyond. And even if 5.0 turns out to be a damp squib, at least we still have its predecessor. I'll continue to write horse words regardless, and I hope you'll continue following me on this weird and wacky journey that started all that time ago. :scootangel:

In fact, that reminds me. I still have another chapter to finish up. I tell you, I am LOVING this new workaholic attitude I seem to have picked up from somewhere... :yay:

As soon as someone figures out how to bottle such an emotion Starlight-style, you will let me know, won't you? :rainbowderp:


Peace out. :coolphoto:

You're a BRIT?! I KNEW there was something about you!

Yep. I thought the main clues would be the snooty sarcasm, the dry wit and saying words like ‘valour’ and ‘pavement’. I’ll take what you said as a compliment, in any case. :trixieshiftleft:

5563696
Older than a teenager, not so old I need to think about 'settling down'. Whatever that is. :rainbowkiss:

Wow seven years on Fimfic, congrats.

5563699
Now THAT'S how to celebrate. Or maybe this:

5563701
Cheers. And I ain't going anywhere. Apart from to bed, as soon as the coffee or Lucozade fails... :ajsleepy:

Wow it's been that long awesome 😃

5563706
Yep. Check the date, next to adult DT at the top of my page. Now Pinkie... where's my anniversary cake?! :pinkiecrazy:

I have nothing but high hopes for G5! I'm loving what I've seen so far! I theorize that they will take everything that made G4 great and make it even better! :twilightsmile:

Congrats! Its a really long way!

5563722
I hope you're right. It would have to be something special, to reach the heights of the generation before... :moustache:


5563725
Thanks, but... now I feel old. Anyway, thank you sonny! Hobbles off on walking stick :applejackunsure:

It's been good to have you!

5563732
Good to be here, too. And if even the mods are beginning to appreciate me, maybe my swollen ego isn't based on delusions of grandeur after all. :rainbowwild:

Now if only I could learn to tone down my excessive use of ponejis, perhaps my forum posts would be a little more tolerable to read... :derpyderp1: :pinkiesad2:

5563731 Nothing will ever reach the heights that G4 did, but at the very least we can take comfort in knowing that we will never have to go back to the olden days of MLP and that this franchise has nothing but a bright future ahead! :pinkiehappy:

You're English?! I love England! How did I never know about this?!

Cheers, to seven years of snark and sarcasm!

5563757
Indeed. And I intend to be here for all of it. :trollestia:


5563805
I don’t know! But now you can love me also. That’s how it works, correct? :scootangel:


5563850
Long may it continue. :ajsmug:

5563737 I mean, I added you to my watch list a while ago so I don't know about the other mods, but I for one kept track of your work here. :raritywink:

5563879
I was aware of this, and thank you for the 'honour'. I still remember your review of A Mother's 'Love', my first big success. I wonder when I'll ever get around to finishing that? Probably the 32nd of Nev. Oh well. :applejackunsure:

I, meanwhile, am very skeptical for G5. I worry it may tarnish the legacy of G4 even more than Twilight becoming a recoloured Celestia did. The new ponies look kinda dumb and plus, I don't think ponies look good in 3D animation.
Not that I don't like 3D animation in general (after all, I'm also a Miraculer), it's just that ponies don't look good in it. And then there's the tennis balls. Do we really wanna turn this fandom into a tennis club?

Overall, I plan on only considering G4 to be canon. I dare Hasbro to try to change my mind and make a G5 episode better than G4's "To Where and Back Again" and "The Cutie Re-Mark". I absolutely DARE them to make a song in G5 better than G4's "This Day Aria"!

I worry it may tarnish the legacy of G4 even more than Twilight becoming a recoloured Celestia did.

G5 is going to be its own separate thing, so there's no chance of that happening. And how did Twilight looking like Celestia in "The Last Problem" tarnish the "legacy" of G4? Yeah, I didn't like it either, but it certainly didn't tarnish anything.

The new ponies look kinda dumb

I personally adore the designs!

And then there's the tennis balls. Do we really wanna turn this fandom into a tennis club?

:rainbowlaugh: Dude, seriously? You're seriously complaining about a freaking tennis ball? It's a freaking tennis ball, and it's only associated with one character. Maybe Izzy likes tennis. Maybe she somehow accidentally ended up with a tennis ball on her horn. Is the movie going to provide an explanation for that? Maybe it's just a visual gag for a joke. We may never know. Either way, this complaint is completely nonsensical.

5564156
Well, Twilight becoming a recoloured Celestia was more of a disappointing ending than a legacy tarnishment, but the point is it was a bad choice and G5 might worsen its effects.

Yeah, I get that complaining about the tennis balls is dumb, but that's pretty much the only thing anyone associates with G5, which again shows how dumb G5 can be expected to be.

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but personally I think G5 is gonna be another piece of uncreative formulaic profit-driven SJW corporate bullshit that every major media corporation (aside from the far-right Trumpist nonsense that is Fox News) is looking to turn legacy franchises into.

I mean, just look at Doctor Who! It used to be great, with talented writers like Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat, and actual talented actors like David Tennant and Matt Smith. Now it's a clusterfuck of plot holes and inconsistencies serving as an outhouse for the talentless excuse of a storywriter named Chris Chibnall while the only-slightly-talented Jodie Whittaker completely fails to portray the Doctor and instead seems to be playing the character of a confused drunk woman.

and G5 might worsen its effects.

How!?

that's pretty much the only thing anyone associates with G5, which again shows how dumb G5 can be expected to be.

I haven't heard anyone talking about nothing but the tennis ball, not on here, Equestria Daily, MLP Forums, Twitter, or Facebook. All I've heard are people speculating about what the film is going to be like, what the characters are going to be like, etc.

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but personally I think G5 is gonna be another piece of uncreative formulaic profit-driven SJW corporate bullshit that every major media corporation (aside from the far-right Trumpist nonsense that is Fox News) is looking to turn legacy franchises into.

Despite the fact that there isn't any evidence of that being the case.

5564249
Yeah, sorry about that, it was another one of my 3AM rants-about-stuff-I-don't-like. The point is, I do not have high hopes for G5. My expectations for it are essentially a 3D-animated G1, with terribly written characters and 1000% cringe. No matter what, I'm sticking with G4. Smolcellus 4evah!
