• Season 1 Transcripts

    He was there to see the season out, and like the 26 episodes he served as a rearguard for, Blueblood looks absolutely fabulous. That's why he's up there, ok? You can't fake that kind of fabulosity. Or this kind, for that matter.

    Through tireless effort and crazy typing speed, a brave and wonderful pony by the name of Alan Back has taken every single last episode from the first season and transcribed them into fan scripts. Being fan works, they are not official scripts, meaning among other things that they're not going to give you the scenery descriptions and directions exactly as they appeared in production, but they are properly formatted and super accurate. This is a wonderful boon to anypony with a creative project requiring episode-to-episode accuracy, or to any of you who are just bored and want to dissect dialog at your own pace without getting swept up in watching the show (there's always so many details I miss because I go into little kid observer mode every single time I sit down. Any of you guys know what I mean?). Download, crack it open, and enjoy

    3. The transcripts from the Wiki are only the characters dialogue.
      Alan Back wrote in full details, almost like an official script. And I'm impressed. Kudos!

    7. Sorry to nitpick, but doesn't vanguard mean forward element? How does being in the last episode make him a vanguard?

    8. There is just so much win, I don't even know how to react!

    9. I trust Phoe completely, but one day, probably Tuesday if I'm not swamped with homework, I'll sit down and check for accuracy, side by side along each episode.

    10. Wow, that is what i call a dedicated brony...

      I doubt I could even make it past the first half of the first episode without exploding into confetti.

      Yep. I meant rearguard, but I derped. This is the sort of thing that happens when you type on auto-pilot.

    12. Yes, Phoe, I definately know what you mean about going into little kid mode while watching My Little Pony.
      I had to watch the first episode of season two twice because I was too excited while watching it the first time. :P

    13. Blue Blood? Fabulous? Pah-lease!
      He wears month-old dish towels for ascots.

    14. Major kudos to Alan Back for his tireless work on these transcripts, but the main reason I'm commenting is to say I love that drawing of Blueblood. Who's the artist?

    15. Oh man, I'm humbled. And here I was complaining about how long my captions took to type and time...this must have taken forever.

    16. Dissect dialog WITHOUT getting sucked into watching episodes over and over? What's wrong with you, pony?

    17. Amazing work. I'm impressed, and not in the way that I've just seen something cool -no, that is genuinely impressive stuff. The level of detail is amazing, the accuracy is astounding, and the quality of the writing makes reliving the episodes in written format still enjoyable even if you've already watched the episodes a dozen times. When I read it I can in my imagination recall every scene and line of dialog in the character's voices. I recommend it to any fan who wants to experience Season 1 in a new light.

      One last thing: I think this would be very, very useful if translated into braille for the visually impaired, the details are so well formed and complete.

      And yes, I know what you mean by "little kid observer mode". :)

    25. Why is this called "transcripts" when these are scripts?

      ReplyDelete
    26. ALL OF MY RESPECT!

      please just take it. Whoever made this is one of the most dedicated and hard working bronies I've ever seen.

    27. Hmmm... We need a new set for this, since megauploads was taken down. I kinda need these for a fanfic I decided to do...
