Finally back for realz this time. During the graduation it's tradition in Sweden that family and friends hang little plushies around your neck (cheap stuff), and usually a champagne bottle or two . My mother went a little extra step and hung a Applejack Brushie around me. I got speechless.
Haven't watched Season 2 since the Halloween episode. I want to catch up. What can I expect? Is it good?
Ahh i see you talking about graduation i had my own gradation in sweden for just a week ago. Althought i didnt manage to get any ponies (didnt sell any in the area sadly :'( ) I later that day managed to buy some ponies later for my class since many are crazy with them Althought it was sad since many cried becouse it was uncertain if we would ever meet eachother again, i know it sounds silly but just making me think of them make me cry
Ponies in the news.
SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) -- Scores of men in brightly colored costumes were among the 4,000 My Little Pony fans at this weekend's "BronyCon" gathering in New Jersey.
"Bronies" are guys who like the cartoon "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and say they're misunderstood. They say there's nothing weird about their love for a show geared mainly to girls. They say they're fans because of great stories, characters and animation.
Animator Lauren Faust was hired by Hasbro two years ago to create the new cartoon based on the colorful ponies first released in the 1980s. She says she did write it for girls, but she's pleasantly surprised to have so many men and teenage boys as fans.

If anyone plays dota 2 can somone start a pony clan. with maybe HoN players
Hah, I love Chrysalis as the best villain yet. Why? Because she's not just a changeling, she's a ****ing Vord. In pony form. It's awesome.
Everyone needs to read a select few fantasy series in their life. Any more than this is great, but not as important.
Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones is the TV show on HBO)
The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
Codex Alera by Jim Butcher
And of course, not a series, just a single book, but still must be read. Lord of the Rings. Don't argue this with me, you can argue it all you want and it won't get anywhere because sometimes it's split into 3 books and sometimes it's split into 6 books; it's one book, often split into more.
But in the Codex Alera series, there are insect-like aliens called the Vord. And the Vord Queen is easily the most badass end boss of any book, movie, or game I've ever read, seen, or played. I mean, there have been a lot of really good bad guys that I've read, seen, or played against, but none as truly badass as the Vord Queen. Too often bad guys seem like they're going to be super powerful unbeatable evil whatever, but then the good guy gets to them, and just ****s them up. Either through a cheesy gimmick, or the bad guy not really being all that tough. Not so with the Vord Queen. Which, alas, is the biggest thing that disappointed me about Queen Chrysalis, she wasn't nearly as tough as she should have been. I mean ****, she took down Celestia like a boss, and then got ****ed up by some sissy Final Fantasy style cut scene love animation? Pathetic. I'm just going to choose to believe that it was never her intent to attack, but something far more evil and dangerous than she pushed her to it without giving her time to properly prepare. So she threw together some shaky plan in the attempt to hide in plain sight.
