Now for another imagination
game: first, if you don't have a younger sister, imagine you do. Now
imagine that your parents let this little sister take control of the
TV. It's Saturday morning, so the new episode of her favorite show
is on In this week’s episode, a young pony named Apple Bloom makes
a potion that reveals her cutie mark... and keeps giving her new
cutie marks and talents Try as you might, you actually find yourself
 
enjoying  this show. But don't feel ashamed- this show, My Little Pony:
Friendship is Magic, has managed to spread far outside its original
target demographic of young girls and supports a large internet
fandom of teens and adults, both boys and girls. In this essay, I’ll
be talking about the basic premise of the show (and yes, there will
be more videos this time- these ones being full length episodes. And
songs. Lots of songs.) show you some screenshots from the show
(because you guys seem to like pictures better than videos), and show you some of the fanmusic.


And here's a screenshot from the episode in question (Cutie Pox) because none of you read my freewrite from last month. Which I need to find some replacement videos for...


First, I have to tell you what
the show is about. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic focuses on
six ponies (Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie
Pie, and Fluttershy) and often one baby dragon (Spike) and their
adventures, ranging from helping settle a dispute between a group of
ponies and a group of buffalo (in the episode Over a Barrel) to
ruining the biggest party in all of Equestria (in the season 1 finale
Best Night Ever).  The episodes can be watched in any order, but
I recommend watching the first two episodes (Friendship is Magic Part
1 and Friendship is Magic Part 2) first.  In these episodes,
Twilight Sparkle goes to Ponyville to check on the preparations for
the annual Summer Sun Celebration and make friends, as per Princess
Celestia's orders.  Instead of Princess Celestia raising the sun
the next day, however, Nightmare Moon appears and vows to make an
eternal night.  In order to bring the Princess back, Twilight
and her new friends have to find the Elements of Harmony.  The
combined episodes are about an hour long.



Next, I'll show you
screenshots of the show because the lack of response to last month's
freewrite has convinced me that I need to include lots of pretty
pictures to get you guys to pay attention to what I write.


Over the top visual gags are common.


Especially for the unicorn the fandom had dubbed “Lyra” (but Hasbro calls her Heartstrings... not that this matters to most people...)


The fandom latched onto this backround pony (whom they have dubbed “Derpy Hooves”), and she has since become a mascot of sorts.

Foreshadowing of the cutest kind.


Let me just say this right now: the CMC are the best ponies in my eyes. Look at them, they're so cute!


Finally, I'll show you some
fan music the community has done, because for a fandom based on a
cartoon about colorful talking ponies we have some epic music. I'm
going to try to include a variety of genres here; the first x songs
are remixes (songs include Becoming Popular (The Pony Everypony
Should Know), Find a Pet Song (which will worm its way into my
Consumer Science project, so if you're in my class look out for
that), Winter Wrap Up, and Cutie Mark Crusaders Theme), the rest are
originals.











Also, because I have to
include a widget, have a Voki customized to look like a human version
of Rarity doing an actual quote from the show with the actual audio
(the specific episode is called Cutie Mark Chronicles), and the
original scene:
