» The Pinkie Pie Principle: Humor From Characterization

Today’s featured content is from first time guest author, Metaright!

Works of fiction can find an audience in surprising places when the creators are determined to produce a quality product. This has led to the runaway popularity of Friendship is Magic, which owes the existence of its unexpected demographic of adults to its intelligent writing. Normally, two aspects of the writing that Friendship is Magic does particularly well—characterization and humor—go hand-in-hand, playing off each other as the humor is first produced from strong characterization, which in turn allows the characterization to grow.

However, the show is not foolproof in this regard. To demonstrate, I will be examining the hyperactive party pony herself, Pinkie Pie. Perhaps no other character is as divisive as Pinkie from a humor standpoint, and even the most loyal pony fans can have wildly different viewpoints about her. Why is Pinkie so special in this regard? Find out after the break.

» Photoshop Fun Day: What Did Pinkie Pie See?

It’s that time again—time for another rousing edition of Photoshop Fun Day! In issue #4 of the IDW My Little Pony Comics, a particular sequence of panels stood out as a bit shocking.

Forums user Fizzbuzz took the panel and created a transparent knockout version, ready for anyone to composite in their GIF or still of choice. Here’s the original for you to see.

Our forums, naturally full of creative people, took the challenge by the horns and responded by turning the looking glass back upon itself. We’ve scoured the thread for some of the funniest entries in the thread to share with you. What was the mystery behind the door? Look behind the cut to find out.


» When Green Isn't Your Color: Being a Colorblind Pony Fan

Friendship is Magic has a fantastic cast in Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie. They’re quirky, outspoken, neurotic, and nuanced. And colorful? Sure, I guess. There’s the blue one, the white one, the, um, the other blue one, the tan one, the…pale green one? This is harder than I thought. At least Pinkie’s got the answer right there in her name. When you look at My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic through the eyes of the colorblind, you gain a new understanding for how the show communicates its themes. Read on for more!
