  1. My personal breakdown of Twilight Sparkle's character, why her character has more depth than you think. https://www.deviantart.com/cloudmistdragon/art/MLP-Analysis-The-Morality-of-Twilight-Sparkle-878108051 There is no character from the main cast of Friendship is Magic I think more about than Twilight Sparkle. Though Fluttershy has almost always been my favorite character of the Mane 6, there’s something about Twilight that will never leave my mind. On the surface, she doesn’t seem very complex. A genius introvert that learns to enjoy having friends, a discovery that leads her on a journey where she gains godlike power and becomes an immortal ruler in the end. Only looking at a short summary of her journey, it’s easy to get the false impression that she’s a Mary Sue, even as Twilight’s journey shows her failing time and time again as the flawed character she is. Obsessive, meticulous, and naïve, these are all flaws that land Twilight in trouble throughout her journey. However, none of these flaws seem to reflect a darkness in Twilight’s heart. On the surface, everything in the series seems to paint her as a pure soul. She is not. Twilight’s moral compass is very much flawed. This is not a criticism of her character, as Twilight’s character interests me far more looking at it from this other angle. This is a topic that has become of great interest to me in the wake of the upcoming G5, with speculation of the role Twilight will serve. Will she still be around to lend the new cast of characters a hand, and whether she will or won’t, will she have become jaded by the loss of magic in Equestria? Was the friendship and harmony in Equestria being replaced by paranoia and mistrust her fault? These questions seem to indicate Twilight being more flawed as a character than we initially believed…however, what if this was always actually the case? What if the often perceived as bad writing throughout the series, not just in the final two seasons, was foreshadowing something like this? What if morality in the show was always more complex than we thought? At first glance, this is difficult to imagine. The show’s view of morality seems very black and white. If a villain doesn’t have a backstory, they’re evil just for the sake of it, friendship is good, good always wins in the end. However, despite this, it’s hinted that Tirek, Cozy Glow, and Queen Chrysalis, indisputably the three villains who cause the most destruction in Equestria with their evil ways, could have changed if they had embraced friendship and Tirek even gets a nod to having a reason for being evil. In addition, good does not win in the end in a single one of the alternate universes Twilight visits in The Cutie Re-Mark, evil triumphs purely because of the absence of Twilight and her friends coming together. Yet Twilight and her friends are still not enough to triumph over evil at the end of the show, it’s all of Equestria coming together that has to save them and convince Twilight to accept the fact that there will always be darkness in the world. Yes, despite the fact that there’s no better role model in Equestria than Twilight in this world that apparently has no shades of gray to its laws of morality, she still must embrace darkness as an omnipresent, indestructible force in the world in order to complete her character arc. Obviously, Twilight can not help the way the world works. However, this proves that she is not capable of being a purely good being rejecting all evil. This capability of being corrupted is also shown with Princess Celestia, her mentor, who was tempted in Starlight Glimmer’s nightmare by Daybreaker, an evil incarnation of herself she could’ve become the same way Princess Luna became Nightmare Moon. An evil version of Twilight only appears in Equestria Girls as a corrupted form of the Twilight of that world, but the world of Friendship is Magic does show what Twilight would’ve been like without friendship through two characters that are purposely very similar to her in design, the once coldly reclusive and abrasive Moondancer and the once villainous Starlight. These may only be “What if?” scenarios, but they are not meant to show the only ways Twilight could ever possibly be corrupted. Even the Twilight that knows friendship was shown to be capable of wrongdoing. The most well-known example of this is shown in the MLP:FiM movie, where Twilight attempts to steal a pearl, believing that it’s the only way to save Equestria. Since the justification for her crime in the movie is very understandable, the question this raises about Twilight’s idea of right and wrong is largely overlooked. Other well-known examples are in the episodes Lesson Zero and A Trivial Pursuit, which showcase a manic Twilight attempting to create trouble out of desperation for a lesson to learn and mistreating a friend out of desperation to win a game respectively. Again, the question this dubious behavior raises is often ignored, most often being written off as Twilight simply having an episode. Twilight did something wrong, she learned a lesson, but what exactly made her believe she was in the right for doing wrong? The answer I have come up with is quite simple, and even explains lesser-known instances of Twilight’s impurity. Twilight believes she is in the right for doing wrong if that wrongdoing prevents her from failing. The three aforementioned examples, even with one being far less petty, all showed her feeling that she was backed into a corner with no choice but to sin to succeed. To understand what would make Twilight think this way, start by looking back at The Crystal Empire, which showed how seriously Twilight took test-taking, to the point where even considering the possibility of failure was enough to demoralize her. Her greatest concern on this quest to protect a kingdom from being enslaved by evil was not saving the Crystal Ponies, but failing her mentor’s test, as shown by her greatest fear being scolded by Celestia for her failure. Even after watching what her brother and the sister-in-law she admired had to go through to protect everyone, she still hesitated before commanding Spike to rescue the Crystal Heart, purely because of her fear of failure. You would think that with time, this fear of failure would subside, but no, it never would. Fast-forward to King Sombra’s return in The Beginning of the End, and Twilight’s greatest fear is still being scolded by Celestia after failing to stop Sombra. She imagines a possessed Celestia and Luna rebuking her for allowing Ponyville to be destroyed, but Sombra was only interested in ruling over the Empire at that point of the story and only ever attempted to conquer, not destroy, any land. This shows that, again, her mind was preoccupied by a test to prove herself, this time, to show that she was worthy of succeeding Celestia and Luna as the ruler of Equestria. Interestingly, it’s not that she wants this role, it’s not that she wants power…it’s that she doesn’t want to fail. Twilight is in no way power-thirsty and maintains the utmost respect for ponies in power. That respect is a sign of her good ethic and loyalty to Celestia, but that respect can also create weakness of the heart, a refusal to rebel against what you know is wrong. The two glowing examples of this weakness of Twilight’s are in Shadow Play and School Daze. In Shadow Play, Twilight debates whether or not it’s right to refuse a pony she believes could be redeemed a chance to reform simply because Starswirl the Bearded, the mentor of her mentors, believes it’s impossible to redeem Stygian. Yes, in spite of the fact that Starlight, a living, walking contradiction to Starswirl’s misguided beliefs, is standing right beside her, reminding her that Starswirl is wrong, she still contemplates going along with Starswirl’s plan. It gets even worse in School Daze, where despite the fact that Chancellor Neighsay has just made it clear to her that he is an openly racist bigot who will not tolerate other creatures learning about friendship, intolerance that completely goes against Twilight’s ideals, again, she still contemplates doing things his way at first to get her school reopened before Starlight has to talk her into doing what should have been obvious from the start, following her heart and rebelling against authority. Why is this? Why does Twilight, despite all the evil she has to face, have so much trouble going against not just a pony she admires for what’s right, but a pony she doesn’t admire for what’s right? Put simply, it’s because Twilight has a good soul, but she doesn’t have a rebel’s soul. This makes sense, considering that all her life, she’s been studying under the most powerful pony in Equestria, and even her entire quest of friendship was given to her as an order from the most powerful pony in Equestria. Her entire life, she’s been closely following the directions of Equestria’s government. Are you beginning to see how this could play a part in G5 for setting up a mistake Twilight could make that would allow for the friendship and harmony in Equestria to be replaced with paranoia and mistrust? Anyone, regardless of ideology, is able to acknowledge the fact that governments are absolutely notorious for being susceptible to corruption. And if push came to shove, after everything we’ve reviewed so far, does Twilight sound like the kind of pony who would be willing to rebel against a corrupt government, or attempt to justify that government’s wrongdoings? After everything we’ve looked at so far, wouldn’t you agree that the best way for the corrupt ponies in the government to manipulate her would be to convince her that if she lets them down, she lets all of Equestria down? What better way for them to manipulate her than to exploit her fear of failure? Is Twilight capable of leading a corrupt government? I don’t know, only time will tell. However, we all know that she is capable of resigning ponies to cruel fates, or at least condoning forces of power resigning ponies to cruel fates. Cozy Glow, only a child, ends up being sent to Tartarus instead of being put in a rehabilitation center for juvenile criminals, and King Sombra ends up being destroyed twice, all while Twilight and her friends rejoice in his demise. Twilight, despite having never killed a pony before, having always attempted to only imprison, banish, or reform every other foe, looks down on him with a smile as she leads her friends to annihilate him. You could say that she couldn’t control the magic that did this to him, but recall, who is the Tree of Harmony’s avatar? Twilight Sparkle. What makes Twilight feel at ease with these two being punished so brutally? How does she justify them being given worse than they deserve? The reason Cozy Glow and Sombra deserve to be treated worse than ordinary villains, I believe in her mind, is because these two villains are representations of her failure. Cozy Glow was a student of Twilight’s who became corrupted and Sombra made Twilight helpless in the face of her greatest fear back when she had to save the Empire, not with her own ability, but by allowing Spike to accomplish what should have been her feat. Both serve as eternal reminders of her shortcomings. You never know what is going on in someone’s head, but this theory would explain some of Twilight’s inconsistent behavior. Most inconsistent for her is the uncanny reaction she has to the reveal of Discord using the villains as a way to boost her confidence at the risk of the safety of the citizens of Equestria. Regardless of good intentions, Discord’s actions of using others, enabling an evil child, sending a villain to conquer a kingdom and take Twilight’s family hostage before having Twilight destroy that villain are comparable to the actions of a psychopath. Yet when Twilight hears this…it is not her, but her friends and mentor who rebuke Discord for his actions. She is not angry, but disillusioned despite the fact that she would be more justified than anyone else in losing it. Her family was put in danger, her country was put in danger, she was set up to obliterate a pony for nothing, yet she says nothing to condemn Discord, she’s only upset about the fact that the victories of her and her friends weren’t real. Why does this stand out as her source of distress? Because Discord created an illusion of her passing a test. Out of everything Twilight could be upset at Discord for doing, she chooses his deception. Not enabling evil, not endangering innocents, not sending villains to their doom, but the fact that he lied. Why is everything else Discord did justifiable? Because he was trying to help Twilight in his own way, despite the fact that this way wasn’t even ethical. Twilight sympathizes with him because he wanted her to succeed. Did you catch it? The reason why Discord’s evil must be justifiable is because the opposite of failure is success. The reason why the song Twilight sings in The Crystal Empire that defines her triumphs and her heart’s purity is called The Failure Success Song is because Twilight’s morality is defined by failure and success. This makes perfect sense because she’s lived her entire life as a student. If you are trying to help Twilight succeed, you must have good in you, no matter what. If you are trying to cause her to fail, you must have evil in you that would put her at fault if that evil were to obstruct her. Before Twilight is forced to accept that there will always be darkness in the world, she views the evil in the world as an obstacle of a test that she will either pass or fail. Evil can not triumph for any reason other than her own shortcomings. Since Discord’s shady actions have caused Twilight to both succeed and fail, she becomes depressed rather than angry because she is in a moral dilemma. This also explains why she breaks down like she does in The Ending of the End, even though she has just been reunited with the friends who sacrificed themselves so that she could escape, telling them that nothing they do matters. It doesn’t matter to her that this situation is Discord’s fault, what matters to her is that her test from Discord was just a setup. This causes her to start irrationally believing that all her accomplishments have no meaning, thus losing her will to fight. She doesn’t have the rebellious spirit that would motivate her to fight against a seemingly hopeless and inescapable situation and she doesn’t view her friends as her driving force, but her desire to succeed. Thus why her fire is reignited not by her friends returning alive and well, but by them reminding her of the fact that she succeeded in making a difference by changing their lives, that her friendship with them is an accomplishment. They also have to talk her out of worrying that she’ll just make things worse and that she has already failed. Fear of failure, wanting to succeed, you get the idea now. Twilight has also doubted friendship in the face of failure, not just here, but in the movie, where she had to admit that she “failed friendship” even though she’s the princess of friendship and friendship is magic, her element. Why? Because she does not view friendship as the core of her moral code like you would initially believe, but as the core of Equestria’s moral code, something she has to exemplify. It’s the guiding principle of the world all must follow, but none can follow it perfectly. This is why at the end of her character arc, she has to be reminded of friendship’s power in order to pull through. Because no matter how much Twilight’s character grows and evolves, she can not deny the feeling that she is still Celestia’s student and nothing will motivate her more than the desire to pass Celestia’s test. In her mind, she’s still a work in progress and a student with obligations to her teacher. However, what happens when she takes up Celestia’s role as the teacher instead of the student, with mentoring Luster Dawn in the future? Even here, Twilight’s driving force is not friendship itself, but her role as a teacher, passing down her teachings to later generations. This would explain why she’s content with watching her friends grow old and gray while she retains her youth inside of an immortal body. In the end, it’s not about her friends, but what she has learned about friendship that she and the generations that follow will learn and teach. That is the conclusion of my dissection of Twilight’s flaws on a moral scale. Twilight is still a morally strong character who has done far more good than bad, but she is in no way perfect. I love that about her. It makes her feel more real to me, appreciating these weaknesses of her otherwise strong ethic because no one in the real world has a perfect moral compass. Since everyone has a different idea of right and wrong, I definitely don’t expect everyone to agree with every one of my thoughts on Twilight’s conduct. I also don’t expect everyone to agree with every part of my interpretation since I believe that the show writers know Twilight’s character better than I do. Indeed, many people do not like how Twilight’s character was written. Me, however, if some of the controversial moments in the show were purposely foreshadowing what I’ve interpreted, I’d appreciate the way Twilight’s character was written even more. Even the things I personally don’t like about her character keep me thinking about her and I see that as a sign of a well-written character. For her to not have any flaws, to only be a goody-goody, a perfect representation of morality, she wouldn’t be the same to me.
  2. Would equestria girls Twilight (sci twi) be an alicorn if she went through the mirror to Equestria? Would she take on a form that resembles her trans-dimensional Equestrian counterpart, or would she appear as a unicorn seeing as how she was never a pony to begin with. Maybe she could preform some act in the human world that would make her an alicorn if she went to the other side of the mirror? As this is purely theoretical and will likely never happen in the canon, discuss!
  3. Below is a link to the story ideas I have for each ship. They are just short summaries, feel free to comment on the journal if you have other ideas! Alternate Verse - Shipping Help! I would also like to take this time to thank all who participate! I will update when I have chosen a ship!
  4. Don't know if anyone pointed this out, but after you watch this character intro videos on DC Superhero Girls YouTube Channel, it just seems to obvious, especially when compare the character's personality's between the two shows. And here I discuss why these shows are the basically (almost) the same.

  6. With "Rollercoaster of Friendship" recently airing, the redemption at the end of Vignette Valencia, has gotten everyone talking again about how redemption should be utilized in both shows, when it comes to redeeming certain characters. And apparently Vignette's didn't sit well with a majority of the fans. And from what I understand, is for good reason, 1. the way she was portrayed throughout most of the special, seem to not really warrant a redemption or for fans to feel sympathy for her. And 2. Her actions spoke and showed that she's a character that needs more development before a proper redemption. But here's the thing, the writers/creative staff, they may write a good to great story for an episode/Special/Movie for EQG or FIM, but at the end of the day, they don't have the final say on how it's presented, Those above them at Hasbro, and DHX have the final say. Don't believe me, ask M.A Larson, he discussed this during a panel last year, when it came to how "Fame and Misfortune" was presented. For example, if it's decided that Cozy Glow gets redeemed at the end of this current season, despite what she has and will do, that's going to happen. If it's decided that Principal Cinch or Finch in Friendship Games gets redeemed in a future EQG Movie/Special, despite what she's done, it's going to happen. Same can be said for Cryissy, Triek, Lighting Dust, Wynn Rider, etc.... The point is, wither we as fans or the creative staff themselves feel a redemption should happen or not, in the end, it's the heads at Hasbro and DHX that have the final say on that decision. A good outside example of this, is WWE, and how despite everyone telling them otherwise, Roman Reigns is still getting pushed down all the fans throats, and getting a possibly rematch at the upcoming WWE SummerSlam event against Brock Lesnar for their Universal Title. And why is this happening, despite everyone outside and inside WWE saying otherwise, because at the end of the day, despite being able to book and write a good show, the creative staff don't have the final say on who should be pushed, Vince McMahon does. And in a strange way, the same can be said here. Because again, even if the fans and even the creative staff believe a redemption is needed or not, they don't have the last word, those above them at Hasbro and DHX have the final say. Anyway, that's all I have to say about that, let me know what you think about what I had to say here. Take Care and God Bless.
  7. Depending on the Outcome (Box Office Wise), I could see a 2nd Theatrical Film coming out of this. However, if we were to be real here, I say the most realistic logical choice would be Direct to Video to release a sequel on. Now as far as a story goes, I could see a story were we "finally" could have a crossover between The Friendship is Magic Mane 6/7 and The Equestria Girls Mane 6/7, and find out the true connection between both worlds. I could also see a story were we get a "Passing of the Torch" , were the Mane 6 would have to seek out those that they believe Can carry on the Elements of Harmony from them, along with the Rainbow Power. I could also see a story were it Centers around the "Guardians of Harmony" line. And Finally, I could see a story were we get the "Return of Tirek", who by using some kind of magic along with the Generation's take on the Witches from the G1 film, helps resurrect The Storm King. And The Mane 6/7 have to come together with some new power bestowed upon them/or they have to unlock to try and stop this group of villains from destroying Equestria. But those are just my thoughts on how I feel a sequel could be released and my thoughts/ideas on what kind of story we could get out of it. But what about you, how do you think it could be released, and what kind of story do you think we could get as a result. And do you anyone agree my thoughts on the whole thing? Let me know down below. Thanks and God Bless -bwrosas
  8. I mean, if you look at the first half of this season, you have episodes that center around that in some way, (Horse Play), (Non-Compete Clause), (The Maud Couple), (Fake it, Till You Make It), (The Parent Map), and recently the Mid-Season Finale (The Mean 6). If those and what's to come in the 2nd half , if that doesn't show you that this season is about really testing their friendship and learning to accept each other for who they are and what they like and dislike, then I don't know what does. I also won't be surprised, (because IMO it seems to be possibly leading to this), that the School remains open as it is, but that Twilight and her Friends decide to step down as the staff of the school, because they'll come to realize that even though the idea for the school is a good one, that after everything they've gone through this past season, and the strong tests that their Friendship has had to endure, that they themselves still have a lot to learn about Friendship, and that also balancing their other priorities along with being teachers, isn't working out for them, and possibly hand off the teaching duties to those that they know can handle it and balance the time to do it. Or they can change it up a bit, to where School only is open maybe 2-3 times a week, and thus the rest of the week they can focus on strengthing their friendship with each other, and focus on their other priorities outside of teaching. And yes, in the end this will lead to a possibly Neighsay redemption at the end of the season. But what do you guys all think? Comments are Welcomed.
  9. I could. I mean she got refencend once in the series, so it only makes that she may make a apperacnce soon. Maybe Season 9? What do you think? By the way Sandy was Firefly's Original voice in G1. Thoughts?
  10. From the last 13:48 of 15:00mins of the 1hr live stream. Here I discuss potently what the 200th episode of My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic could be about. ps. between the cut out of 2:37-2:53, I was talking about "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel as the song Pinkie could a cover on. Comments are Welcomed @EquestriaDaily @mlpforums @MyLittlePony @MLPMovie @dhxmedia @HasbroNews @MMeghanMcCarthy @NicoleDubuc @dhxmedia @lady_writers @joshhaber @goldenrusset @JoshuaHamilton #RAWAfterMania #RawAfterMainia #WrestleMania #MLPSeason8 #fakeittilyoumakeit
  11. So one question that was brought up, was how are the MANE 7 going to work around being teachers and such at this school, while they have other priorities to attend too. That's a good question. And hopefully, I can answer that. Now some are looking at the school as like a college of some kind, or an independent study program. And if that's the case, then it's real simple, you have one or two classes taught a day and that's it. Then afterwards you use the rest of the day to attend to those other priorities that need attention. For example : On Monday's , you could have Applejack and Rainbow Dash teach their classes, while the others use that day to attend to their other jobs and priorities Then on Tuesday's, Have Fluttershy and Pinkie teach their classes, while the others use that day to attend to their other jobs and priorities Then on Wednesday , Have Rarity teach her's, while the others use that day to attend to their other jobs and priorities, rinse and repeat. And then use the rest of the week to focus on other priorities that need attending too, or use it to just relax and enjoy life. Because you have to remember this, Rarity has 3 shops to attend too, so she would need that extra time to attend to them. Rainbow Dash is a Wonderbolt, so she'll need to rehearse with them, even if they work around her new teaching schedule, she still needs time to rehearse. Applejack has her family's farm that needs tending too. Pinkie has Sugarcube Corner bakery that she works at, so she'll need time for that. Twilight probably would like some time to just relax and read a good book, maybe catch up on what Sunset's doing, spend time with her family, etc. And Starlight would probably enjoy a bit of a break too, especially if she's going to be the school's guidance counselor, I'm sure she would appreciate some time off. But yeah, I believe that's how the school, from an hourly/time-wise perspective will work. I mean if you have 15-16 episodes yet to come that are non-school and non-student six centered, then what I just mentioned here on how it will operate, fits right in with the continuity of the season. Because remember after this past weekend, we now have only 8-9 school and student six centered episodes to go. But that's how (IMO) I believe the School of Friendship will operate in continuity with the 8th season. What do you think though? Do you agree with what I said? Share your thoughts and have a Blessed GOOD FRIDAY.
  12. I apologize for the length of this audiovideo at 27:40mins, please take your time to listen, and I also apologize if I seem to have rambled and repeated myself at times. God Bless! Here I talk about how fans have felt after the S8 premeire, and why with these new 6 characters being introduced, that fans have nothing to worry about this season or into season 9, and why the season will be the only true season based on the school of friendship and the only season to soley feature these new 6 characters.

  13. After watching "Analyst Bronies React: Season 7 Finale "Shadow Play", I can understand many of the points that they made. However, if you really think about it, Starswirl was just as much to blame for what happen as Twilight. Now you may ask, "How can that be?" Well, when you think about it, if he had placed a note in his journal, telling whoever came across it, not to reverse the spell, maybe the Mane 6 would've been more cautious about it. Now let's say Twilight still wanted to reverse the spell, she could've done it in a way, that like in the S4 premiere , she could've put her own spin on it, and like later on in Part 2 of "Shadow Play", assumes she's figured out a way to bring the Pillars back without the Pony of Shadows, only to have it backfire, for example, when it at first it seems to have work, and even Starswirl seems impressed, but as they start to leave Ponhenge along with the Pillars, that's when the lighting hits and the Pony of Shadows emerges, and as they all turn around and see this, that's when Twilight realizes her own spin on the spell failed. Another thing is, if they wanted to involve Celestria and Luna a bit more, they could've had Starswirl teach them (back in the past) not opening or reverse any kind of spell that's meant to protect Equestria, and then have them pass it on to their future students. One thing some fans have taken issue with, is Starlight being the voice of reason, and basically being the one that saw the bigger picture of the situation and realized that there was possibly more to this than what was being telegraphed. And the reason that was, was because she was using her past experiences as an antagonist and what she had learned as Twilight's Student to realize that they were only getting one side of the story and not the other, and when they finally did get that side of the story, the reaction of the Pillars and StarSwirl was one of, "Oops! We Fu**Yeah** upped! Because they realized that hear their friend out on his reasoning for taking their items, and his reasoning, was because he wanted to help them in battle. And Starlight's reaction towards when this revelation was made, was one of, "See, Stygin was ready to talk and explain his actions" One other thing, is some fans may not like the fact, that it took towards the end of part 2 for her friends to stick up for Twilight, but my guess, is they love and respected Twilight enough, as to not confront Starswirl's berating of her, that was until he didn't even get a look see or consideration to her proposed plan/spell, and guess that was moment that the rest of the Mane 6 were basically "Enough of this berating crap of our friend!" So overall, yes!, "Shadow Play" was/is possibly one of the best Season Finale's the Show has done. But yet there are issue's here and there, that some members of the fanbase will take issue with, either positively or negatively. But those are just my thoughts. What did you guys think of what I had to say? Take Care!
  14. The only way any kind of ship can happen, is when they decide to end the show, and the final (which I still believe will be 10) season occurs , that is where I believe any kind of ship for the Mane 6 or any other MLP character will happen and become official.
  15. Is MLP : Friendship is Magic Hurrying Certain Moments Instead Of Really Building Up To Them? Did this before today, but I discuss, if MLP : FIM is hurrying certain big Moments and should they have held off on them a bit longer. Comments are Welcomed
  16. I'm just curious about that. Are the clothes suppose to match their personalities? I'm just curious about that. Also, how in The Equestria Prime world (the Pony world), she doesn't have mascara on her eyelids (or lipstick as seen in some promo pics), but upon arriving in the human world, she does. Couldn't they kind of keep her a bit of the same, like they did with Twilight. Also, one last thing, How in the world can she or Twilight get easily adjusted to the human body, like it's it nothing? Someone, please answer that. That's all have to ask for now. God Bless!
  17. When Twilight and Later Starlight Enter The Human Equestria World, How do they get their clothes or in Starlight's case, mascara on her eyelids when they arrive? I'm just curious about that. Are the clothes suppose to match their personalities? I'm just curious about that. Also, how in The Equestria Prime world (the Pony world), she doesn't have mascara on her eyelids (or lipstick as seen in some promo pics), but upon arriving in the human world, she does. Couldn't they kind of keep her a bit of the same, like they did with Twilight. Also, one last thing, How in the world can she or Twilight get easily adjusted to the human body, like it's it nothing? Someone, please answer that. That's all have to ask for now. God Bless!
  18. I think the S7 finale (wither you enjoyed or not) gave us an idea of what Josh and Nicole has/have in store for us in this upcoming season. As far as the Pillars go, I've been thinking, that something is being set up that will cause them to go back to their original timeline in history, maybe they start losing whatever power they have or like Mistmane did in her story, start to grow older and in this case, weaker because they're slowly losing their power, and the only to save them is to send them back to their own time. Also I think somehow we will probably find out the that there is something more Darker than the POS, Tirek, Chrysalis , or any threat they've faced combined. I also think that all 6, if not Mane 7/8 Will get a vision of what this NEW Threat is, and what they may have to do to stop it, which may be something silmiar to what The Pillars did a 1000 years before to contain the POS. But those are just my theroies. Do you all agree?
  19. Overall, it's a good episode for Halloween time. The only thing fans take issue with , might be the message. But when one looks at it, the message/moral is something we all deal with at some points in our life. And what that is, is even if we don't like something at first, how we will we know we don't like it if we don't try. And even after we try, the we can decide wither or not to give it a shot again in the future. I also did like some of the references to anime like Sailor Moon, Utena, Dragonball, etc... And wither people will like or not, I did like the little (subtle) RarityxSpike moments they threw at us towards the end, as well as have Spike near Twilight during certain moments. So I did like those little tidbits. One thing I might have changed is, if her Friends know Fluttershy will give it a shot, hoping she may join them every year for Nightmare Night as a result, shouldn't they have at least tried to tone it down for her enjoyment, or at least take the time to teach her the finer points of the holiday and how to enjoy it. I'm just saying. But Overall , A Good Episode for Halloween Time. Here's hoping we get another Nightmare Night/Halloween episode in season 8. God Bless!
  20. This my theory on why the Writing staff has Written Twilight Sparkle the way they have after "Magical Mystery Cure". These are just my thoughts. Comments are Welcomed #MLPMovie #MLPSeason7 #TwilightSparkle
  21. With any film based on a comic book, a novel, or a live-action or animated tv show, there's going to be nitpicks from fans about certain characters not being used correctly, to the main cast being ooc, etc... With the MLP Movie, it's no different, and here I'm going to discuss 4 of them, that I touched upon in my video version of this topic. 1. The Princesses (minus Twilight) being useless again. Now let me (IMO) tell you why this happened. As a kid of the 80s, I've seen Hasbro do this before (Transformers : The Movie, G.I. Joe : The Movie, Etc..), and the reason they do this is to put focus on The "MANE" group of characters that the film needs to be focused on. For if they had all 4 Princesses out and about, pretty much any fan knows that if they combined their powers, this invasion wouldn't last very long. So they had to figure out a way to basically pull a "PRIME/DUKE" moment with Celestria, Luna, and Cadance, and did so, by having Tempest use that green orb thing to turn them into glass stone. By doing this, it puts the focus on Twilight and friends having to find a way to save the day (ala, 1986 TF MOVIE and 1987 JOE MOVIE). So for anyone that was upset by this, well hopefully I gave a good reason on why this happened. 2. Twilight acting OOC. This seems to be a topic from the film, that has many fans up in arms. Well, let me explain why Twilight was like this:. You see Twilight was already putting a lot of pressure on herself by putting together this first-ever Friendship Festival, then all of sudden this hostile takeover from The Storm King happens, her Mentor's and sister-in-law get turned to stone, and the only clue she has to save their home, is "hippos". And if that's not enough, it seems her friends weren't taking this too seriously, from trusting someone, who originally wanted to sell them into slavery to pay off a debt, to befriending pirates, by helping them get their mojo back, and then doing a Sonic Rainboom, when they shouldn't have, to finally the last straw being, that the one character that Celestria had mentioned could help, turning them down, thus causing Twilight to attempt to steal the hippogriff's transformation orb, to her friends calling her out on it, while discovering at the same time that Twilight was just using them to make Skystar "happy" so she could try and attempt the thief. So as for Twilight acting OOC, you really can't blame her. I mean even in real life, if someone is going through a lot and has a lot on their mind at the same time, and it takes one little moment or comment from someone to set them off, of course their going to lash out and say things that they don't really mean. And that's exactly what Twilight did, everything just came to a boiling point, and Pinkie calling her out for what she just did, that was the straw that broke the camel's back. But what you see afterwards (off/on screen), is both regret the blow up they had, and both sides realize that they should have worked together, not against each other. 3. The Storm King not being a good villan. As I said in the video version of this, I think when fans see this character, they see this film's equvenlet of Starscream from Transformers. Being a long-time fan of the Transformers, I saw Starscream as a usurper that wanted control of the Deceptions from Megatron, but was always foiled in the end, and the reason was because Starscream was shown as not being ready to yield such power or knowing what to do with it, once he had it. That is somewhat how some fans viewed the Storm King, Tempest promised and gave him the power he craved, but he really wasn't ready for it and like Starscream in several Transformers incarnations, it cost him his life in the end. 4. Where were the other characters, like Discord, Shining Armor, etc...?, Well since this was made around seasons 4-6, they could have been incorporated into the film. But they (the writers) wanted the main focus to be on the MANE 6 and yes even the Newer characters. Besides, as I meantiond with the Princesses above, if Discord was around, we probably wouldn't have much of a takeover would we, and who's to say he didn't suffer the same fate as the 3 Princesses (but off screen), I'm just saying. And if you must know, this is a staple of any Hasbro and Toy-based animated features, certain characters will be involved in the film, but mostly off-screen (ex. '86 TF Film, had several Autobot deaths off-screen), so just because we don't see them doing something on-screen, doesn't mean that they aren't part of the story in someway. But that's all have to say in this written version of what I said on video about Nitpicks some fans have with this film. Let me know what you all think. God Bless and Take Care
