Friendship IS Magic!
Oh boy where do I start..... Friendship is Magic may be the best show on television. Not just for it being funny, clever, and surprisingly sophisticated, but because it created a community of "unsuspected" fans, who actually still learn about being a good person, through the show. "Bronies" (teenage boys/ grown men who watch the show) have easily became one of the biggest groups of fanboys of any show on television. The show revolves around a group of six friends (all being equines) who consistently learn the value of friendship through various lessons brought up by poor choices they make. The main pony, Twilight Sparkle, is a purple unicorn who is very bright, but fairly socially awkward. She has a purple baby dragon assistant named Spike She is Princess Celestia's (leader of their homeland, "Equestria") personal student for learning about magic. Celestia sends Twilight to a small town named "Ponyville" (yes, the name of the town isn't that creative), to make friends with local ponies. She quickly meets a pink earth-pony named Pinkie Pie, who is obsessed with having fun and partying. Pinkie Pie is somewhat insecure, and keeps her partying personality because she's scared of her friends leaving her. She is kind and caring, but WAY over-the-top. Twilight then meets Applejack, a cowgirl-esque orange earth-pony who lives on a farm with her grandmother, Granny Smith, her brother, Big Macintosh, and her little sister, Apple Bloom (more on her later). Applejack is kind, honest, and hardworking, but she is very stubborn (i.e. is afraid to admit she can't do everything on her own). After Applejack, Twilight meets Rainbow Dash, a blue coated pegasus with a rainbow mane. She is self-centered, somewhat rude, and acts like she is the best pony ever. She is a loud-mouth too, but she genuinely cares about her friends, and is loyal. Rainbow Dash is a regular fan-favorite (not mine, but just popular). She is also an athlete flyer who models herself after a famous flying group named, "The Wonderbolts". Twilight then meets Rarity, a white-coated unicorn with a passion for fashion (rhyme time!). She is considered generous, though she is self-centered. She is a mean sister to her little sister, Sweetie Belle (more on her later, as well as Apple Bloom). Rarity only accepts clean things, and is afraid of getting dirty. After Rarity, Twilight meets Fluttershy, a kind, caring, and very, very shy pegasus. She cares for woodland critters, and puts them in front of anyone else. She is also too shy to stand up for herself, on all but one episode. They all have special talents (Twilight= good at magic/Rainbow Dash= athlete/Fluttershy= caring for animals/Rarity=fashionista/Applejack= good harvester/ Pinkie Pie= fun and joyful). All of their talents are represented by cutie-marks ("tramp stamps" that represent your special talent. Twilight= element of harmony sparkle/Applejack= apples/Fluttershy= butterflies/ Pinkie Pie= balloons/Rainbow Dash= rainbow lightning and cloud/ Rarity= diamonds. Ponies aren't born with cutie marks, they have to earn them. Three fillies, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo (Scootaloo is my personal favorite pony) dont have them yet, and try as hard as they can to find their talent. That's all I can say for now. Watch the show to find out more.
