pelting him something rotten?
I never like Rainbow Factory.
I'm with you, Cereal. This is the first I'm hearing of any pine cones. Is that supposed to be a thing now, or something?
Wow! Two of my favorite pony things... updated! (well sorta. Loved the original what are british and I can't stop listening to Rainbow Factory.)
I think in a Fluttershy/Trixie shipfic, Trixie had to eat pinecones to survive or something. To my knowledge, pinecones are to Trixie what abacus is to Luna.
That first one is god damn amazing
Loved the rainbow factory one and lol at the british and my little onepiece made me think of MLP Anime Edition.
Pinecones and Trixie have been a thing forever. I don't know why.Maybe someone saw that cup she had in the episode with a picture of hay on it and mistook the hay for a pinecone? I dunno...
#1 Now that's one awesome PMV, even if it's based on one of the most disturbing fanfics out there.#2 Pie what is pink? Astronomical wanker?! lolwut#3 This would be such an awesome intro to the show.
Hay? I thought that was wheat.
Astronomical Wanker! epicness.
OMG, I've listened to Rainbow Factory so many times. I love that video.
BronyDanceParty once again fails to disappoint me. I love the Rainbow factory tune and the fanfic as well.
You got me, I have no idea what the whole pinecone thing is either.
One of the local bronies from my area requested an artist during a live-stream to draw Trixie eating a pine-cone. That was where it started.
Hehehhahaha! Rainbow factory! Love! that third one where have i heard that song before....
To answer Cereal about the pinecone thing.Double A is the large size and extra flavor variety.A is the average flavored variety of pinecone.B grade is not crunchy and tastes horribly to some, but to others it's an acquired taste.
I thought they were discussing the EU countries.
I met the guy that STARTED this at BroNYcon. It's meant as just a sheer "what the hell?" thing.
British Pinkie > British Bakura
I heard that the pinecone thing was when someone was requested randomly to draw Trixie eating a pinecone and then other people started drawing it, like the sock fad.
@T'laren Well, it's working. Shakespeare's petticoat, some ponies are right bonkers, I declare.
Rainbow Factory, Because fanfic writers hate rainbow dash and feel the need to torture her, make her a killer, ship her with everything, or write stories about her that will depress the entire brony community to the point of not being able to look at her without crying.
I'd always thought of the message of Rainbow Factory of simply being a way of saying that weather control is serious business. This is definitely a very dark take on it, I wonder if the animator came up with this idea, or Wooden Toaster did.
@CaptainDashIn my defence, Rainbow Dash is best pony IMO.No lie. =PAlso, that PMV is EXCELLENT! I like the idea of using Pony Creator with animation. Very interesting technique =D
@CaptainDash Well based on what you're saying, I must work in a completely different way. I've read the fanfics and have had reactions to them. So by extension, I've seen all the 'cruelty' done onto Rainbow But when I watch the show, I set everything aside and just focus on that. The Rainbow I see in the show is a separate thing from the Rainbow I see in the fanfics.
I just got scared playing a game and decided to come look at the posts to help calm me down, then I listened to Rainbow Factory (for the first time, i might add), and now I feel worse. HOW CAN YOU FAIL ME, IN MY TIME OF NEED. Now I'm going to be on the site for another hour or so...
Okay, I've heard of this Rainbow Factory thing before...but not any real details. Is it as bad as Cupcakes? Because if so...why the hell is a PMV for it allowed to be on EQ Daily?
@AuroraDawnThat was a good fic btw, and Dash is the best@CityFlyer502That's what I tell people who have just read cupcakes, The characters in the fic aren't the character from the show.
the one piece one made my day
That "British version" of MLP killed me. God I loved it. "Astronomical wanker". *snort* MORE MORE MORE!!!!
I love how videos for Cupcakes and Rainbow Factory are posted in consecutive days :DI just hope there isn't one for Sweet Apple Massacre to complete the trifecta :/
Rainbow Factory is the scariest thing I have ever seen1 (That has to do with ponies) of course I try to avoid the scariest things.
@CaptainDash Then what do you tell to the people that read Cupcakes and were left thinking "huh? That's what all the horror stories were about?" 'Cause that's just about where I fall in. Sure, it was pretty disturbing, but I think there's worse stuff out there than Cupcakes. Saw's the first thing to come to mind.
rainbow factory video is awesome i saw it yesterday. i also enjoy Wooden Toaster's song.(though i went and found "the rainbow factory fan fic that is based off of the rainbow factory song" and found it to be a good psychological read. but i digress scootabuse is not something i enjoy. in fact it's my least favorite type of grimdark fic. i would rather take "that fic that shall not be named" over anything scootabuse any day)
I've seen #3 already, but what the hay, I'll watch it again since I'm a One Piece fan!
"Great William Shakespeare's petticoat!"XD
@KyroneaI found it a little more disturbing than cupcakes, if only because it was better-written and closer to the original characterizations. I enjoy the occasional dark read, though.That being said, an excellent selection of PMVs. I really like the Ponies What are British series.
@Kyronea Yes, it is a gore laden fanfic but honestly the story is better than that of Cupcakes even if it is no marvel of literature. While Cupcakes is a mostly shock value this has some interesting plot to it.The PMV is probably allowed because there is't any gore in the video and the music is so awesome.
@Kyronea no the rainbow factory fan fic is nowhere near the as bad as the gorefest that is cupcakes.
@CityFlyer502I feel like there are a few reasons why a fic like cupcakes might be like that, because I had a similar reaction, but that's because I had mentally over-prepared myself as a result of all the hype. I actually saw a trailer for it a few times that more or less showed everything Pinkie did, so in the end I wasn't surprised when I read the story.
I see. Thank you for the answers, everypony. Still, I think I'll skip that one. I dislike grimdark. (Though I have read the occasional fic...specifically Fallout Equestria...but then everypony's read that one.)
@CaptainDash Well that might be it. When I first got into this, Cupcakes was one of those things that kept getting tossed around, and then it didn't take me long to find out what it was all about. I actually didn't read it until about two or three weeks ago, and like I said, I was left thinking "that's what all the hype was about?" I might have had a different reaction if I hadn't known so much about it beforehand, but that's just how it went down.
For the Rainbow Factory, why does one of the ponies look like one of my OCs? (The grey one with the heart cutie mark) That's pretty weird. Also, the song is cool, but based off that video I am scared of the fanfic.
@CityFlyer502Kinda makes you wonder if future bronies are going to have the same thought with Rainbow Factory now that it's been animated.
I think the whole pinecone thing started with Slugbox doing a thing were every 100 of ther Parodic Pony Pin-Ups booklet thing they sold, they'd draw a certain anthrofied version of the characters, and on the list, it said they'd eat a pinecone on a livestream if 1000 were sold.
@CaptainDash Who knows. Maybe another fanfic will come along that puts Rainbow Factory and Cupcakes to shame, and then that will be all the buzz in the community.........did I just say that?
Hmm, I've been enjoying the Rainbow Factory song since I first heard it in Everfree's top 100 (my pony pic and fic folders are sizable, but I only recently got into fan music that isn't remixed from the show). This latest PMV only makes the song that much cooler.Think I might have to look into the Fanfic it inspired. Grimdark is not usually my thing, at least not the gory kind, but if I was able to bring myself to read Cupcakes, all be it after months of holding off, then Rainbow Factory should be easy.Oh, and the return of the British Ponies is most delightful. Can't comment on the One Piece vid though, as my familiarity with the source material is close to zero.
@CityFlyer502i thought the exact same thing after reading cupcakes. i was like "thats it? thats what i have been afraid of for months? wow! what i had running through my head based on what i heard about it was much worse !" so now knowing that cupcakes is tamer then anything i have in my head i read grimdark fics as if they are nothing. though as i said i still don't like scootabuse. but hey i would rather read grimdark fic then sad fic . . .i avoid sad fic like the plague after reading "bittersweet". i have never cried like i did after reading that fic in my life.
That One Piece PMV... that's been around for months...I still love it thoguh... I can't help it.
@coldshoulder That makes two of us. I was expecting a total blood bath, but got something completely different. And I don't really touch sad fics unless they're worth reading. Bittersweet was a real tearjerker, but Final Dreams Of A Filly still breaks me down when I dare take a look at it. It's a wonder I can do what I said and block it all out during an episode. But like @CaptainDash said, the ponies in the show are different from the ponies in the fanfics and that's the formula I go by when the show starts playing.
Rainbow Factory.That song and Fanfic still haunt me. Especially when I'm playing TF2 and the I see Scout (Modded to look like Rainbow Dash) get gibbed by a rocket and have her multicolored, bloody head roll past me.And yet the song is awesome enough that I keep coming back for more.I'll watch the others later. I'm tired.
I don't get the whole Rainbow Factory thing. I had heard it was very dark and just so good and creepy and disturbing and etc. and when I read it, my reaction was simply that it's bad. Badly written, badly characterized, badly plotted, just shoddy all the way around.I think if that same concept had been in the hands of a skilled writer, it could have been very potent. But bad writing trumps interesting concept every time.
Those are pinecones?? I always thought those were grenades O_O'
@CityFlyer502ya and since i am sine i am also a warhammer 40k and have been since i was young grimdark was a place i visited quite often throughout my life. ye i know i don't count them as being in the same universe at all as well. cannon ponies are not the same to fannon ponies no mater how close they get. that's the only way i can look at pinkie's smiling face without a tear coming to my eye after reading bittersweet. (that fic really REALLY did a number on me) but i have read some sad fic afterword but that's because they were happy sad and a very good read.
@coldshoulderI'm starting to think I need to read bittersweet now.
@CaptainDash Go on ahead, but it might leave you sobbing for a while after. For what it's worth, the subject at hand is something that I have personal experience with.@coldshoulder Yeah, I was left that way too. Didn't really help that it was one of the first fanfics I ever read and like I told @CaptainDash, the subject at hand is something I have experience with. Not me of course, but my brother. And...I won't go into it any further.
I keep coming back to watch Rainbow Factory. Why do I continue to take this punishment?A) The song is that awesomeB) I'm psychoticC) BothI'm honestly not sure
@CaptainDashNO! if you like pinkie pie at all you should stay away from that fic at all cos.... i mean if you want to read it you can im not stopping you. but as i said it made me bawl out cry. it made my hear break for my favorite pony. after reading it i had to repeat the words "shes not dead, shes not dead, she is stile alive! i will see her again in next weeks episode! shes not dead! " over and over and over again. this has made me more afraid of sad fics then i am of grimdark fics. that's all i have to say on the subject of bittersweet.
Hmm, the Rainbow Factory PMV wasn't bad. More simplistic but that's fine. I'm surprised I haven;t seen more fully-animated PMV's to it yet really.The Ponies what are British sequel video was funny like the last one. Had me giggling.The My Little One Piece video seemed well made. Though I haven't watched One Piece in... who knows how long it's been. lol
Hmm, I think I preferred the other ponies what are British more than that one, even pushing english as old-tymey as you can go it's a little overdone. Accents are pretty good though, it's not bad at all.
If I remember correctly there was some brony a while back that went to various artists and requested pictures of Trixie eating a pinecone.After some of the semi-big artists did so, the idea kinda just stuck I guess.
#3's been linked before, only you linked the English version.
Pinecone was a forced brony meme, started by one brony who basically spoke to every artist he could in an attempt to keep it going. It still shows up from time to time, but even at the height of its success has never touched ponies in socks.
@CityFlyer502 frankly the only way I can read some of the fics out there is remembering these characters are essentially actors in the fic. given a bad script they will act horribly, but given a good script the performance is wonderful. look at gen 3 ponies, such wonderful voice acting, but no talent put into the writing, do you blame the voice actors? no, you blame the hack writers. so no, do not blame any pony for how they act in a bad fic.
Anything that combines MLP:FIM and One Piece HAS to be great. LOL
Cereal, blame BronyMike
@Steel ResolveI'm just waiting for Mystery Pinkie Pie Theater 3000 to riff Rainbow Factory.
@Steel Resolve In no instance was I blaming anybody. We were just talking about how some people read the fanfics and then have their views of the show characters distorted. Whereas I read the fanfics, but keep both worlds completely separate. I don't watch the show and think Pinkie is a psychotic murderer. Or that Rainbow is having a fling with Twilight. No. The instant the show starts rolling, all of that gets thrown out the window.
@DPV111 That's gonna be so interesting to read. Assuming it gets done of course. They made a complete mockery of Cupcakes, so I'm curios to see what could be done with Rainbow Factory.
WTF Cereal, I'm sure I saw that third one a LONG LONG TIME ago...Also, that pine cone thingy, I think it started here --> http://graphic-lee.deviantart.com/art/Trixie-waits-and-watches-264561688
The song is nice and creepy enough without a fic explaining what happens in gory detail. I think part of the effect of the Rainbow Factory is the haunting lyrics, combined with those awesome strings, and leaving the rest to your imagination. I'd rather not see that spoiled.Plus, reading grimdark just to say that I've read them isn't something I like to do.Ponies What are Brittish is one of the zaniest yet best ideas in ages. PIE THAT IS PINK indeed.
#3 I read "Believe" and "Japanese" and thought it's I'll believe by Altima. Oh well, One Piece then. British ponies are always great, though. ;P
The Rainbow Factory PMV was pretty nice, and told a pretty good story. Much better than the fic, anyhow. Being mostly images and pony generator characters, it was rather well done.British Ponies is funny as always.The third one was posted here: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/pmv-one-peice-outlaw-star-pony-openings.html but this one is in English. The song was just changed to Japanese, and nothing beyond that was altered.
#1 is an awsome song and there should be more 3/4 step out there. However, the vid creeped me out slightly. Still, not as horrifying as that cupcakes video.
The pinecone thing is trixie making twilight get a bad grade by grading her pinecones- Twilight would prob freak at a grade lower than perfection
HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING DAAAAAAAAAY!!!! TO ALL BRONIES BLACK, WHITE, AND ALL SHADES!
@coldshoulderI don't know, I mean, I've read Cupcakes, and I've read My Little Dashie, and I'm still fine with both of those characters. Unless Bittersweet is actually sader than My Little Dashie, I should be able to handle it.
Rainbow Factory ftw! :D (The fanfic is just stupid though. Why do people even care about it?)
@CaptainDash It's a just a well-written sad story. If it turns out that it gives you some fucking psychological trauma, that just means there was already something wrong with you to begin with.
@CityFlyer502Not really relevant to the rest of your conversation, but I'm pretty sure that the fanfic was inspired by the song, not the other way around.
the pine cone thing has been tied into alot of things like the ask princess luna tumblr. im not sure the correct thing is that it ORIGINATED from it but i think it did. let me get a link to the tumblr and you can see for yourself i am too lazy to confirm http://ask-princess-luna.tumblr.com/
I am afraid of reading that grimdark crap. I don't know whether the author is good or not, I just find the subject matter disturbing. Ugh.
LOL #2: "Roar-ith."
"Someone please explain this damn pinecone thing to me."^Memes Cereal, memes: they aren't hav 2 make sense.
@wackypony"Pelting him something rotten" would translate as "Throwing a lot of things at him"
#1 Didn't read so didn't watch#2 I lack proper words to describe it's awesomeness. Spike was the best and Pinkie after her faceplant was also great.#3 Japan culture should stay as far away from ponies as possible. This simply doesn't mix and results are creepy.
wtf was with those british accentsit's just not right
Ooh... The Rainbow Factory is kind of awesome, but it could need just a tad more volume on the vocals! It gets a bit drowned in the power-pounding music! Now... Dub-step remix plz?! ;)
I read Rainbow Factory. The characterization was terrible. From the first time I heard a pony swear there, I thought "This is kinda stupid. Ponies don't act like this, and certainly don't treat others this way." And then we got to the point where Dr. Exposition explained what the machine actually was and concluded that, were it not so gruesome, it would actually be hilarious.
1. Saw it not even 5 minutes after it was released, can't wait for more PMV's from this guy (the pneumatic steam effect from the pistons sounds awesome)2. "Pie what is Pink, cease presenting him with confectionery!" this is just plain fun to listen to3. (Music source is Believe by Folder5) ANYWAYS, always like the source music rather than the abridged versions used in opening/ending themes; I remember seeing the reactions for Japan getting a Subbed version of the first Episodes of MLP:FiM, pretty funny. Wonder if they would do something similar to the Powerpuff Girls -> Powerpuff Girls Z (or PPZ?);
Rainbow factory is genuinely creepy.
About time the Rainbow Factory pmv made it in here!I cannot stop listening to the Insane version!..I think I might even be tempted to read the fanfic at some point.
@KyroneaThis pony, er, dragon, hasn't read Fallout Equestria.So there. Your argument is invalid.
Ok seriously some one needs to get LK and MasakoX to do one of those brittish things.
@CaptainDashYOU are kinda right cause there is an animation of pinkie pie killing rainbow dash.I told him about rainbow factorythen cupcakes [brr] and he said I was lying when I told him He'll see the truth once he reads itHAHAHAHA
@Rainbow dash vs pinkie pie in evilnessOR watches it
How do I get rainbow factory to be my ringtone
