ITT, fantasy blind readings. Pick one or more VA's and assign them an MLP character you'd like to hear them voice temporarily. Then give us some lines you'd particularly want to hear from them (they don't all have to be from the same episode).

Sean Schemmel- Princess Celestia
>No. You won't. You may have made it impossible for Shining Armor to perform his spell, but now that you have so foolishly revealed your true self, I can protect my subjects from you! (then follow up with one of his familiar power up screams)
>A phoenix is a majestic and magical bird. While it appears healthy and happy most of the time, every so often it must renew itself by shedding all of its feathers and bursting into flame. Rather melodramatic, if you ask me.
>I know! Can you imagine how dull it would have been if I hadn't invited Discord? Come on! Whoo! The night is still young!

Chris Sabat- Princess Luna
>Fine! We won't even bother with the royal farewell!
>BE STILL!
>No, Twilight Sparkle! We must use the traditional royal Canterlot voice for what we are about to say. Since you choose to fear your princess rather than love her, and dishonor her with this insulting celebration, we decree that Nightmare Night shall be canceled! Forever!
And just for grins, I'd like to hear both of them reenact the scene where they're bickering about the wedding gift during Slice of Life.

Dashed hopes, empty dreams Nother Nonymous 36804805[View]

A recurring theme in a number of episodes is seeing a character achieve a longed-for outcome, only to find out that the prize isn't worth the price. The classic expression of this is "The Best Night Ever," but there are other examples -- e.g., Rarity in "Sweet and Elite," Rainbow Dash in "Wonderbolt Academy" and "Daring Don't," AJ in "The Last Roundup," and so on. Compare Applebloom's fears in "Bloom and Gloom." The upcoming episode (S5 E14) looks like it may be another example. Whenever bright new dreams clash with old ties, the dreams have to fade. Is an overarching message of the show that your future has to be limited by your past?

While I will agree that you're probably right in that the writers didn't intend to portray spitfire so negatively, and that she learned a lesson in them, I feel they still inadvertantly gave a poor showing for the wonderbolts.


If it was a one time thing it would be more forgiveable, but since they just keep DOING it, spitfire comes off as not being able to grow or develop as a character despite learning multiple lessons XD


Either way, I know the show writers probably intend to keep the wonderbolts as Dash's dream and not portray them as being "bad", but I'm still pointing out that, even WITH them learning lessons in those scenarios, they haven't come out looking too good.

on that note, this is another reason I dislike the focus on cutie marks this season and how cutie marks have been smacking more and more of destiny as the show's gone on. I would much rather cutie marks just symbolize your talent and what you're good at, with what you DO in life being completely unrelated to your mark and up to you.

I don't typically post on this board, but I'm currently making my way through season 4 (held off as long as I could, and finally my curiosity got the better of me) and just watched episode 4, "Daring Don't".

I don't know if this was discussed previously, but I felt a HUGE opportunity was wasted on this episode. I kept expecting the end to find out that all along Rainbow Dash was writing a fanfic (or Twilight wrote one for her), and that the writers could get a few friendly jabs in at the fanfic community. Imagine my surprise and disappointment when, no, all of it was true.

Sorry if nobody cares, I just felt like sharing that. Go about your business.

Its not 100% gone as an option though: There could still in the future be an episode about Rainbow dash writing (bad) fanfiction.

Like learning that sometimes just because you LIKE something (Reading daring do books) doesn't mean you'd be GOOD at it (Writing them).
Be interesting to see dash cope with not being able to do something she had her heart in.

>>36804668
Don't worry, lots of people didn't like that ep, for lots of the reasons. e.g. I feel it lessens the Daring Do stories to have them be based on real events, I suppose since it means the joy of reading fiction still hasn't been touched upon. They also wasted their chance to make Daring Do more than a Dash recolour (e.g. have Daring Do's cover artist not just drawing the author), but nope.

The whole ep was kind of a mess too. All of the mane 6 are there to just watch as Do gets mugged in her own house, but then it's just Dash for large parts of the rest of the ep...

Ah well.

I can't really see much changing if Spike was adopted by Twilight or any other pony, seeing how he's already doing his best to try to integrate into pony society.

It's probably not going to happen unless a plot calls for it, though, as the developers are rather careful not to paint themselves into many corners.

Spike is a Metaphor for Evangelical Christians Enlightened Pony 36803380[View]

So, /pony/, it occurred to me, during the regular course of my day, the reason Spike seems to have not developed at all throughout the series.

As you may know, I just got back from Trotcon a few days ago, so I know what the Meaning of Pony is. I was just going about my day, pondering my own insecurities and the meaning of life and pony, as usual. There was an evangelical program on in the background when my mind finally made the connection.

Spike, as a character, represents old, fixed, immovable ways of thinking, and specifically evangelical Christianity.

I should have seen it before.

Let's break this down:

1. Spike is a dragon. Dragons are typically driven by greed and other base desires.

Evangelical Christians are obsessed with overcoming these base desires, so much so that they forget about the true meaning of life - friendship, love. Their minds are overcome by these thoughts, just like a dragon.

2. Spike has no perceptible character development since Season 1.

Those aren't really three convincing resemblances that you nailed down there. They're more like three huge blanket statements, many of which are taking the worst possible perspective against evangelical Christians who often aren't my favorite people either.

To me it more seems like him focusing on the cutie mark is due to the writers being told that this season has to focus on Cutie marks and what they're about.

Cutie marks honestly haven't been a big deal before this season if you weren't the CMC, Hasbro probably just said to focus on it since Cutie marks are an easily trademarkable image for characters to define who they are.


>>36800628
One of the best parts of the episode XD

I disliked 100, but DAMN was that a great part. It was just so randomly serious that I couldn't help but laugh.

On that note though, the "an endless search for a cutie mark" bit seems off, in that you don't really search for a cutie mark for more than a couple of years. Its something that happens at puberty more or less and you have it the rest of your life, no searching needed.

Unless you're trouble shoes, who's an outlier, there's nothing about your cutie mark that you keep searching for.

Finally caught this episode, too.

Pretty good Spike balance here. I feel almost as though they brought "immature" Spike and "snarky" Spike into a unified whole.

Interesting view into pony politics here. The four princesses and how they operate. How their subjects tend to be a tad overly demanding of them (e.g. trying to bug Twilight Sparkle to make decisions when she's too out of it).

Overall, pretty solid episode, fun and interesting. Season 5 continues to deliver.
