A pony can’t eat a lamia silly. it’s the other way around

Moths and bats are back but lamia thread remains absent. I’m still working on [.content]

My theory is that mothponies have better tasting blood than other things and they know that the bats know that and they bats know they know they know and it makes things awkward. They don’t have any real issues with each other though beyond the discomfort

It might be the kind of topic, how would a unicorn thread go? Or a pegasus thread? Earthpony thread? They could sure go for a bit but talking about the species specifically can only last so long, we have the changeling thread kept alive by a coya and the snowponies are new so there’s tons of lore to talk about. That’s why the lamia threads lasted many months, new blank canvas and lot’s of content to show off, we don’t have anything going currently.

I remember there was a thread on Sphinx and there’s almost nothing to go on there so it didn’t last much. I think it could work but they’re also a creature with irl lore so I think people got hung up on that instead of branching.

It probably would turn in to a shitfest real quick. Ppl would prob immediately start complaining about "muh created lore" vs "accurate 2 da show" and would scare off any creativity, and slowly it would devolve in to derpitards qnd coomers shilling their half baked Mary sues. Granted, I am going off of older board mentality. G5 has brought in some newer anon, and really has improved the quality of the board. I'm glad that snowponies are doing well though; it gives me hope for fan created content.

I have something I've been working on for quite some time now. Not sure how long it'll take to get it finished (shooting for December), but I'm more than confident it'll give us something to blab about. It using close to nothing made in these threads, but I hope it'll at least capture to spirit of the old moth threads. Just imagine cute, warm moths in a cute, cold village, and that may help paint an idea in your head.

I guess for right now, though, maybe we could make up some head canons about specific characters. Like, has anyone thought how Hexferry ended up being a honey maker?

>>37677144
Took me longer than 24 hours but here I am!
In an effort to distinguish pegasi from bats, I've stolen and adapted some factoids I've picked up some stories over the years.
Firstly, unlike pegasi, bats don't channel magic through their wings. As a result they can't really interact with weather like pegasi can, nor can they fly like pegasi. Their wings are more meant for sort controlled bursts flying from treetop to treetop.
As for what their magic can do, again its near 100% sensory. A magically gifted bat would have near superequine echolocation. A great example of that in action was in a story by engAnon, a bat pony was able to tell the main charatcer's sword was dull while they were blindfolded and while the sword was still in its seethe. They could probably do other stuff too but I haven't been able to come up with it yet.
Lastly, why would the bats even be around? Well, people often forget, but the world of mlp is actually full of horrible monsters that in an untamed wild would probably shred ponies without a second thought. Therefore, bats evolved as a tribe with almost the explicit purpose of being night watchmen. Ponies who's whole point is to protect the heard at night. That's their purpose in the pony driven artificial ecosystem.
>>

Oh yeah, as for diet I generally have in my stories that their primarily fruit and insectivores, cuz I will not tell I lie: I think the blood thing is kind of stupid

>>37672955
>>
>>37684196
>>37684203
I can get behind this. The nightwatchman bit makes a lot of sense as to why Luna would have them as her guards.

Also, yee, I always found the blood thing to be pretty dumb. They canonically feed off of fruit in the show, and pictures of bats with fruit is a lot more wholesome than pictures of bats consooming blood. Lol

I havent really been around /bat/ before so I wouldnt know if this has been explored before. Instead of distinguishing Y from X I like to make connections of Y to X however I got no time to write this and don't know any bat or moth characters if anyone wants to run with it.


From my perspective evolution doesnt really apply to ponies, the only exception being Alicorns which is why it stands out as special but instead are basically born into each race that suits them. They can still fit as a nightwatch but maybe the reason they were shunned is because of what they are is a direct result of what has been done, not just because of what they look like, where they live or what they eat. Instead of being born hybrid breeds like Kirin they used to be normal ponies long ago but are now a magically-cursed race going back generations? Is this too edgy?

One, they're not OP unless whatever fanfiction you're reading has made them so
Two, they still have a set of agreed upon aesthetics that existed when they were first seen, namely the nightmare night episode, and bright pink is not part of it. Bright pink bats are autists' attempt at making their oc stand out, but so is making them a bat in the first place a lot of the time.
Hence proper bat ocs that are colored like bat ponies

Unironically based and original-threadpilled. As much as I am a hypocrite with my burnt orange batpony OC, I quite agree that the grey and dark colored bat ponies are a lot more accurate to what a batpony should be. Even dumping original-thread lore out, they are still more aesthetically pleasing overall.

Yeah, that concept works on Heartbeat quite well. Still mostly grey for the most part, but it helps makes her vibrant pink mane stand out more. Very bat, but also very girly and intense.

God I wish I had a plushie or a figurine of her; she's a cute character.

I for one can not really bring myself to care enough to even form an opinion on if gray bats or more colorful bats are superior to one another when it comes to design, as long as it's not my little pony fursona tier with neon raveparty rainbow vomit bodies and coat patters from at least 4 different species of animals, and tiger stripes at least somewhere, face looking like it took a shotgun blast at close range due to all the piercings adding +1 uniqueness and personality, with equally unique individual spiritual lyrical miracle manes and usually made into a bat alicorn with demon horns, it's a-ok in my book wether it is grey, pink, orange or white or even pooprat brown

Alright these are deviant art/amino tier bats.

Batponies can absolutely be a wide variety of colors and still totally fit the style, they just have a different set of base rules, the same way ponies have a set of rules, although they mostly just use pastels. The kirin have a set of rules too, more muted and earthy colors. They can absolutely have more unusual colors as long as they’re within the rule set and are in the places they’re allowed to be.

A good example of a colorful batpony is Dusk dancer, or perhaps Pokey, Florence however might be pushing it with PURE WHITE, because never use pure white, but a slight tweak she still fits, bats like midnight blossom, echo and jasmine all have the same base color and that’s a bit too restrictive, even later on the show we see more colorful bats.

They take to nighttime colors like blue purple and green, gray works fine and black and not quite white work too. Warm colors here need to be darker hues unless mane highlights or the eyes, any yellow orange red or pink, especially for the coat, try putting a nighttime/ low light color filter on and that’ll probably make it work on a bat.

>>37706872
Ok so I was thinking about dark magic corruption and the crystal ponies being an example of magical speciation and then the ideas bumped into each other and the bat question

Why might batponies be shunned by other ponies and what made them become bat like in the first place?
Where do batpones live hm?

Ok so the idea is they ancient ancestors of the batponies built the well of shade, living in the shadows and worshiping the darkness, their constant existence in such a place with dark magic constantly swirling around them and perhaps even practicing it directly would have turned them into bat monsters, we know dark magic gives ponies slit eyes and fangs and with nightmare moon we see her wings become slightly bat like. Perhaps the bat pony features we know today we’re even directly intentional to help them live in the darkness, they became nocturnal, and over time becoming bat-like just stuck to them. Be it a specific spell they used repeatedly or just the side effects of living in a dark magic whirlpool they eventually just became that way permanently.

Just like the crystal ponies are now a separate race, but non crystal ponies can still become temporarily crystal with the original spell, batponies can still be created, as we see with bat rainbow dash. But are their own continuing subspecies now

They have since abandoned the well of shade (and dark magic?), left their original home a ruin, and the new batponies have given up the dark magic cult and made a new hollow shades to the (east of the original?)

The other tribes shunned them for their evil and were put off by their twisted forms and they just kept to themselves ever since.

I’m sure more details can be cleared up on this with more thought and time

I’m not sure if the episode contradicts my idea or not so I should go double check all that.

Mothponies can have a similar story. Their culture had some kind of transformative magic that became one with them over time

I always assumed they were Cambions or Dhampyrs like pic related. Born from an undead or demonic father and a mortal mother and shunned by their community of birth while resisting the deadly lure of their fathers' world. Eventually enough were born that they banded together and became a subspecies.

>>37710006
Well they still do stick together and become a subspecies, they just dealt with a different sort of demon here. My idea isn’t quite perfect though, they must have started as pegasus but how they did their magic related stuff isn’t clear. The crystal ponies were earthponies though and they did the same kind of thing I’m suggesting.

The pony of shadows or demons from some shadow realm can whisper to ponies it seems, telling them what to do and pretending to be nice, Stygian was a unicorn though so he was a better target than them. Maybe they stopped after what happened to him actually? There’s a lot of assumptions made compared to what I’d like to make but batponies barely exist and half their lore is fanmade.

What’s actually happening at the hollow is blurry and I need to clear that up. They said it’s not normally how we see it in the episode but what do they mean by that?

They imply ponies live there but we see none, applejack says she’s pretty sure some extremely distant Apple family members live there, but maybe she means Hollow shades the town.

The show never actually goes there except for very briefly, and it is for dark magic reasons, trick gets the alicorn amulet there. also where Tirek was hiding when discord first found him.

Don’t see batponies there but we only see two ponies from there.

The big rock formations at the ruins they go to aren’t on the map but the town is

The map table also is fucked compared to the actual map and put it on the west coast and isn’t the right shape and pretty much useless in any mapping situation because they change it so often.

It is a bit involved but maybe it can be slimmed a little. I’m just putting together bits of lore, not all of it is canon stuff and o only see a loose puzzle forming, there might be an answer that’s wholly canon but to explain bats we don’t have anything. If we accept magic evolution that seems to be true and say bats were made that way it still needs a situation where it can occur, the evil shadow temple in the ancient ruins near where it’s decided they live is a great candidate

Still not sure which method of becoming a batpony makes the most sense, natural dark magic corruption or specific design, if they started as pegasus it makes sense as the first, we never see a pegasus affected, it’s likely something would happen to their wings though, and we know the other bat features are common to dark magic, their ears are the odd part.

With unicorns it curves their horns, it brings up some questions about the Easten unicorns like mistmane and also makes me wonder if under the logic of this theory it would make sombra a unicorn equivalent of a batpony?

If they had some kind of specific batpony spell it might explain some inconsistencies but if we look at bat rainbow dash the spell only gives you wings and not the rest. And pegasus would have to have some artifact that does this, as might be necessary for magical speciation to occur.

I don’t have a solid idea yet here.
>>
>>37718566
Also on the mothpony/flutterpony side we see there is a spell to give ponies butterfly wings so maybe something related to that kind of thing? They have a lot more features than that though so they might be much more involved than any other example and need the most liberties to be given.

After all they’re actually completely fan made and not designed in any regard for this kind of concept, not that bats likely were either. It just works better on them.

This could also potentially explain the seaponies, doing similar things to what the hippogriffs are doing currently.
