All these leaks about Season 8 and G5...

And I'm still more focused on the state of my game than anything else. Even if the show completely overhauls itself, I feel that not just my work, but the work of every passionate person will still live on.

I really want to do more with those two... Maybe a sequel. Something of a Orpheus and Eurydice type deal, really flesh out the two cities, you know?

I agree on seeing more of those two in a sequel! but uhh one of them is kinda... but I would to see new characters with different personality and making them fall in love depending on the choices you make through out the game and not just one love letter and then boom! Cupid: you just got coupled! I'm hoping more on giving one of them courage to say or to do something. like per say you found a bottle of water and give it to the mare who is thirsty (like any normal protagonist would do to build a relationship) OR give to colt and tell him to give to the mare (vice versa). I love building relationship or help building the for others Like mass effect with joker and that robot (EVA I think?)

Yeah, I know one of them is ****. Haven't you read the mythical story of Orpheus before?

If I were to make a game about them, it would be less about building relationships and having them do the impossible to reunite.

Fortunately, I haven't seen any leaks of season 8. I've actually haven't even seen Seen season 7.
There's been a lot happening so I haven't had time. I'll get to it as fast as- Wait, Gen 5? :o
Hold the phone, was Generation 5 of MLP announced? Wait, does that mean the MLP we have come to love is close to ending? :(
Is the next gen a whole new cast (more as in, different iterations of old characters) ? is it a reboot with gen 4's cast? is it a continuation?

I have no idea, but it sounds like a reboot that starts RIGHT when G4 comes to a close. Too soon if you ask me.

I haven't been paying attention to MLP lately, but I didn't know Gen 5 would come so soon.

As for the rest, you are going to have to delve into the deepest pits of 4chan for that one.

If that was just fanart, it looks pretty damn good. Rarity looks pretty much the same (since she is best pony), Applejack is fine (she's a bit more realistic, but just not used to the lack of a), but I can't see Fluttershy as a Unicorn, and... wait, Earth Pony Twilight Sparkle? BLASPHEMY!!! I mean, making Twilight an Alicorn I had no problem with, since I felt like it worked well with her character arc in which she was the disciple of Celestia, and making her an Alicorn made it feel like Celestia was choosing her to be her eventual successor.

I mean, I'll be honest about the idea of Gen 5 in general: My Little Pony, prior to FiM pretty much had little to no mythology or lore, it was just "Magic Ponies for little girls" and everything was set in a sugar bowl world where everything was perfect. One thing people love about Gen 4 is that it finally added a mythology to the franchise and gave the MLP world it's own identity beyond just magic ponies. Gen 5 could make it's own take on the lore that Gen 4 created, build upon that foundation, and make something truly amazing that could possibly be greater than what FiM was. The big fear is that Gen 5 could reverse everything progressive and interesting that Gen 4 did and return the franchise to a "girly" series, which I think would ultimately kill MLP, especially given we live in a time where genders aren't stereotyped like they were in the past.

Well, see, here's the thing. Whether or not this takes a step forward or step back depends, sadly, on the suits. Faust took the show and made it more well-rounded and fun for all ages, despite the corporate meddling. I have a feeling that, because they are redesigning old characters in new beginnings, they want to play it much more safe and tread on familiar ground, rather than take notes on the shows bible and create a new setting altogether with new characters, new lands, and new challenges. You are right that they can't go back to the stereotypes. The suits know this well enough. However, there's also a similar danger in reinventing the wheel too much, and fixing what isn't broken can lead to audiences scratching their heads on why the show hit the "history eraser button" and start from scratch so soon while G4 is so fresh in their minds.

I was just reading the email, and I really don't like the idea they have for Applejack, since I like her as a farm pony because it does emphasize the fact that she's... well, a horse. As for Pinkie Pie being a Pegasus, I'm fine with that idea, especially since she was originally being considered to be a Pegasus during development of FiM, with Fluttershy being an Earth Pony, but for some reason this was changed at the last minute.

Male ponies I'm fine with (they have to procreate somehow after all), but in the end, I'd like it if they stick to the main three species (Earth, Unicorn, Pegasus) and introduce other species like Sea Ponies later on. One more thing, wings on hooves for the pegasi sounds rather awkward, though it reminds me a bit of the Greek god Hermes, though I rather have them in the usual place.

People are already holding funerals for the death of a character when it comes to AJ. Sure, she was hard to write episodes around, as they usually focus more on her family than her, but I really liked her character as a hard-working, salt-of-the-earth, country girl. To throw that out in favor of an AJ that is a urban troublemaker is kinda "bass ackwards", to say the least. I'd much rather it be about a new character, as the idea of a city punk slowly developing into a good, caring person in the end is a good narrative to have.

All the leaks are crazy, but I'm excited for Gen 5, kinda.
The passion projects and amazing things everyone has done will surely live on, though. Good luck to you!
