I'm not sure if this is what Vaniver is referring to, but she did lock Luna up for what could have been forever if she hadn't managed to return.

The show is going on another break which means Ponies and Homestuck are on simultaneous hiatus and I can't take it any more.

Oh wait, I mean, I couldn't see how NMM was turned into stone. I kind of...just assumed she hung out on the moon, like, playing chess or something?

I always thought she was locked up in the actual moon.

The Mare in the Moon formation appeared similar to the real life Man/Rabbit in the Moon formation, which is made out of craters and such on the moon. And it disappeared after Luna was freed with the aid of four stars. So...it is entirely possible that Luna was turned into stone on the moon.

I'd thought that was just for dramatic effect, to symbolize that NMM was there without actually showing her.

...Well, if not, someone should ask Luna what it feels like to be a giant rock in space.

Yeah, I interpreted that as Celestia imprisoning Luna in the moon.

(Also, I sort of want to see someone make an animation of Celestia and Luna using Ralph's "one of these days... one of these days... bang zoom! To the moon!" from The Honeymooners.)

There's persistent rumors that she'll appear sometime this season. I'm just disappointed they wasted the opportunity, since it's not like they'd even have to write dialogue for her in the last scene.

Turned the TV on this morning. MLP: FIM with Dutch dubs. Scarred for life.

The worst part was that they didn't translate things like 'Cutie Marks' or their names, so it was an abomination of multipile languages with a Flemish accent.

Spoiler:
I think my favorite line was "Congratulations Spike! You're the new Rainbow Dash."

I very much enjoyed the "here's all your great memories and everything you've learned about friendship" scene with Celestia sending back the letters. I was mildly disappointed that everyone else was fixed through magic memory sharing, but I can see not wanting to have the "I can see the good in you!" conversation six times instead of one.

Yes and apparently so.

It was on Kindernet ( y'know, Comedy Central channel before 3pm ), so basically it's on Belgium television. Damn you Studio 100!

This makes me wish I was fluent in my country's language (Welsh - with only about half a million speakers its nearly non-existent outside of Wales and completely unheard of outside of Europe unless you're an Argentine who lives near Patagonia) so I could translate shit into it and link it everywhere for people to just wonder what the fuck is going on.

Wait, there are people who speak Welsh in ARGENTINA?!

Yeah, an area of the Patagonia county/district called Y Wladfa was colonised by Welshmen in about 1920 or so.

Game_boy wrote:I want a Welsh dub now. But they're only allowed to use words with the letter ll in them.

I can see the title sequence now...

Fy merlen fach, fy merlen fach, aaaaaah...
(Fy merlen fach)
Roeddwn i'n arfer meddwl beth allai fod cyfeillgarwch.
(Fy merlen fach)
Hyd nes i chi i gyd, mae'n rhannu hud 'da fi.
Antur mawr,
Llwyth o hwyl
Mae calon hardd,
Ffyddlon a chryf,
Cariad a tiriondeb,
A hud yn ei gwneud yn holl cwblhau!
Fy merlen fach 'da ni.
Ydych chi'n gwybod eich bod yn fy ffrindiau gorau?


Needs a little work. Especially Twilight's lines. They have loads of super-long words in them. But it was only a Google translate job. But I'm super happy with the title. Fy Merlen Fach has a good ring to it. For those of you not versed in Welsh (I assume all of you), it's pronounced "ver mare-lin vach", with the ch being like in Bach or Loch.

Okay... I think I have to learn Welsh properly now. I'm having ideas. They'd all speak in Valleys accents except for Applejack, who'd speak in the country bumpkin North Walian accent and Rarity would speak like one of the posh Taffia from Cardiff.

Have you heard the Italian intro? They threw the original song completely out the window and made a whole new opening:

I have to wonder if the rest of the show is localized that thoroughly.

I feel bad for only just discovering this thread...
my only thing right now is that Randall may be one of the only comic writers on the internet that hasn't done a comic on this fandom.
It being a controversial fandom is not an excuse, because he also did 2 comics on the furry fandom (not that anything is wrong with furries).

Oh, and Dashie is best pony.
On 10/10/10, My Little Pony started to appeal to adult males. Ya rly!
Forget the /b/ memes, and go watch the show and see what I mean. After all, the /b/ memes exist because the show itself is so cleverly written. Check it out!
