Close-reading Analysis of MLP:FiM (Part 2)Conflict is explicitly introduced for the very first time with the story of the younger sister's envy. Envy is, classically, the second-most detrimental of the Seven Deadly Sins, trumped only by Pride. In the Bible, mankind's Original Sin is Pride -- believing oneself to be separate from or superior to God/Nature. Envy becomes possible when Separation is perceived to be real. The tale of the two sisters' rivalry is a sort of feminine retelling of the story of Cain and Abel with the ages shuffled: the younger sibling's offering is shunned while the elder sibling receives praise, prompting the shunned sibling to rebel and attack.Close-reading Analysis of MLP:FiM (Part 2) by penguindf12
According to Lauren Faust (though never explicitly stated in the show itself), the force responsible for transforming Princess Luna into Nightmare Moon was an evil entity that took advantage of her growing resentment of her sister's greater recognition. This entity feeds on her dark feelings and gives her power.
The basic feelings that led to Princess Luna's dar

A disclaimer which I believe ought to precede just about any in-depth close reading of any work:
I do not mean to imply during the course of this analysis that the creators of this series necessarily consciously implemented the concepts, ideologies, etc. that I examine here. However, I do propose that these things are nonetheless latent in the work, whether or not the creators consciously placed them there. Any work of art is a complex network of references wrought from culture and history via the medium of the individual, herself an instrument of these forces. When we create, we create with the materials from which we were ourselves created.
The series opens in a "classic" fashion: a storybook opens magically as the female narrator speaks; "Once upon a time...". This familiar sequence establishes a number of associations immediately; the fairytale connotations of the narrative opener, coupled with the image of a storybook, brings to
Apples of the NightHowdy. Y'all probably already know me, I’m the honest, mild mannered filly with a gift for tendin to orchards; but in recent times I done got sick of my simple earth pony life style. Sure yall are probably like “why in tarnation would a pony with an apple shaped cutie mark ever turn to the crazy stuff I done?” Well shoot, I reckon it all began some time ago.Apples of the Night by pootiet12345
I guess it all starts with somethin they taught me at Ponyville Tech: the dilemma of pony nature. I attended college to get myself a degree in business management a few years back along with a minor in agronomy. It was boring as shit, but I digress. In a class about theories and origin of Equestrian life, I learnt about this here dilemma, the idea that somehow ponies are all supposed to be equal when we are really quite outmatched by superiors among us.
The foundation of our society is that ponies like my friend Pinkie Pie and myself are the workers. Yep, you already know where this is going, but we really have no
A Dash of SprinklesRainbow Dash looked at her latest conquest, the beautiful yellow mare with an orange, flame like mane, laid on her bed, sleeping peacefully. Spitfire was truly a gorgeous mare, her shapely legs, and smooth, silky plot only adding to the temptation that is sex with a wonderbolt. She slowly got up, crawling out of the other pony's bed, trying her hardest to not wake her. Then Rainbow did what she did best, she dashed out of there before anyone could force her to stick around for breakfast.A Dash of Sprinkles by pootiet12345
'Good Faust she was tight,' Dash shuddered thinking about the cleanliness and fine perfume scent, 'but I never want to eat out another mare for that long again wonderbolt or not.' Rainbow Dash loved mares, but she hated providing them with oral services. It usually ended up taking too much of her time, too much of her effort, and there was always a slim chance that (even with her discriminating tastes) she could get a sexual infection in her mouth and tongue.
It was always strange to h
