No, ThE SuN Is a DeADLy LaSeR.

1...2...3.... Huh, that's odd, weren't there supposed to be four colorful horses of the apocalypse?

The killed Famine because eating disorders are racist.

God DAMN that's funny. :pinkiehappy:

THAT WAS FAST

This feels like an indictment of something. Also, that cover pic is unnerving.

No offense, but I'm somewhat miffed by the fact that this story was, for all intents and purposes, little more than a paper-thin excuse to winge about the recent G5 leaks/teasers.

Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of concerns myself—I'm not gonna pretend the candyfloss we've seen thus far is anywhere close to flawless—but I don't want to see the fandom at large devolve into embittered cynicism. Believe me, it's a rather miserable fate for any community—especially one predicated upon "Friendship and Magic".

Point being, can we please try to keep our heads cool and level for at least a little while longer?

Sorry for taking up your time.

I think that maybe both G4 and G5 can exist. No need for a fight.

Sorry, I don't keep up with the news, what exactly is this all about?

10692523
Apparently the look of the G5 ponies got revealed via some bed sheets.

I’m reserving judgment until I see it in motion. Cause this feels like a Transformers Animated situation.

It doesn't even bother to hide this is shitting on G5 and the leaks. Which I assume is where the cover art is from.

Expecting 5hus fandom to be more mature than this is a list cause I feel. At least, all of it.

10692523
G5 got some new characters leaked, they're in the icon

10692526
Oh, generation 5. I wondered what that was about. I only though there were three generations of MLP designs

This is the definition of 'horror' right there. Kidding. For all intents and purposes we'll just have to wait and see how it goes.

10692488
Someone was going to write a fic like this when word spread. I'm just happy that it's not just a simple piece created for attention: the story comes off more as an artistic representation of that cynicism, rather than a perpetrator and follower of said cynicism. The worst is yet to come, and this is a great start compared to what we could have opened up with. If you want to be more positive, then be more positive. Simple as.

10692488
I'm also cautiously optimistic about G5. I just wanted to make a timely story and this is what I came up with, haha.

After all we don't know ANYTHING about these new characters (if they are even actual main characters and not just random placeholder ponies), so I had to be creative.

Okay, seriously, what am I missing? This is the first time I've seen these characters.

Yes.... let the drama over G5 begin...

:pinkiecrazy:

You’ve got my sense of humour and perspective of where the world is going down perfect, but the ending felt like a bit of a cop out. :rainbowwild:

10692555
I thought the ending was even sadder than if it was all real because in the canon of this story the girls are blissfully unaware of even the notion that they might be replaced. Well, when you try to do art with a contentious topic as the focal point, you're bound to not please everyone. Thanks for reading!

holy crap

I HAD GOOSEBUMPS THIS WHOLE STORY

HECK

10692599
A bit like our beloved pets have no concept of their own mortality? :moustache:

It's not really 'sad' per se. As long as they live their best lives, and give us plenty of great memories along the way, I think these are the most important things. The same two principles can be applied to the positive impact G4 left on (most) of us. Gone, but never forgotten. :twilightsmile:

As for the future of the franchise, whether these new ponies are going to have any part of it and whether they'll be as ingratiatingly 'woke' as they are in your fic we'll have to wait 'n see. As a natural cynic, I fear you may to closer to the truth than I fear... :twilightoops:

siggggh..... hanz... get ze flammenwerfer.... we must put these abominations down

Y'know, despite the apparently woke new protagonists of G5 being kinda in the gray area as we haven't seen any of them properly yet, what I am interested in is the villains that would come out to play. (or villain, since there is talk of it being an animated movie)

Evil Ponies that want to live in their own little village just like they did for hundreds of years?

Somehow managing to bring in serious talks about Supremacy into a thing for children?

Capitalist encouraging class divides to increase profits?

But Nah, it'll probably be a misguided pony who gets 'reformed' by the end of the movie and forgiven for anything they may have done.

Traps???

Made me laugh. I think I’ll stick with G4. G5 looks cringe af

well maybe if you got out from under that rock you hide under to avoid updating your fics you'd know

y'know, i think this premise woulda worked far better as a satirical comedy wherein those three hapless goons get lambasted for their dipshittery and possibly are cast as ineffectual villains

This is a mixed feelings story, since we're all worried about what G5 is going to do to the Equestria we know and love. It made me laugh, though, because no matter how good or bad G5 is it won't be as bad as this.

For anypony who's feeling a bit nostalgic for the Mane 6, just remember these brilliant words:

Let the rainbow remind you
That forever this will be our time
Let the rainbow remind you
That together we will always shine!

10693378
Yeah I think I wanted it to feel that way. On the one hand, this is inevitable and we can't stop G5.

On the other hand, the adventures of the G4 cast are timeless and can never be erased. And the power of nostalgia, as time goes on, will only increase the magic of this amazing series that nobody ever saw coming back in 2010.

Thanks for the comment :)

Circumstances have forced me to focus on writing paid commissions rather than the stuff I do for free. Pardon me for needing to keep a roof over my head.

10693483
suppose that's fair
still miffed about it tho

I don't get it. Is this really about G5?

Pete100 #37 · 6 days ago · · 1 ·

I don’t care what hasbro says. G4 will always be better than whatever monstrosity they make.

10692821
We don't know much yet. Keep an open mind.

10692448
It sure was. Then again, the reveals are coming thick and fast at the moment.

Nice to see that a story was created in this short time frame between the leak and the official news.

I personally liked the alternative take on the switch between generations. Let's hope that the official transition will be not as dark but still pretty good. The news we now have (26.2.21) painted an in my opinion a promising picture of the future. :twilightsmile:

10696760
Yeah this was more of a quick crackfic of sorts, though there was a point to it.

Check out my most recent G5 fic! It's much better, IMO.

Hehe no need to fight right? RIGHT?

10692488

Believe me, it's a rather miserable fate for any community—especially one predicated upon "Friendship and Magic".

Uh... have you looked at the premise of G5? "Friendship and Magic" got thrown out the window.

10697437
The premise of G5 is that harmony and friendship and magic have been lost / abandoned. Obviously the story will revolve around Sunny and friends restoring all of that. So suffice to say we are going to get enough love and tolerance to satisfy us, I am sure!

10697437

"Friendship and Magic" got thrown out the window.

If that winds up being the case, it's still no excuse for us to throw it out the window ourselves.

(Also, see Pickle's comment.)

So they turned it into into an old Playstation game? Silent Ponyville?

10693285
I swear your very chromosomes are shaped like dicks.

10698709
More like a soulless, grey metropolis devoid of personality (i.e. any given city in the West with a population over a million).

10699338
For a moment I thought you were talking about his chromosomes. I wasn't sure how to parse that.
