I haven't seen or read anything about the finale, but I'm guessing Cozy Glow is Chrysalis in disguise.

With all the changelings running around and the Tree of Harmony operating its own set of doppelgangers, this show is starting to look more and more like that old John Carpenter horror movie The Thing.

I have to admit, I was confused at first until she kept it up and I realized what was going on :p

>>36829200
Scoots expression when she blurted out "I CAN'T FLY" was one of the high points of the episode.

its a single line, but it manages to convey alot of emotion and neatly aknowledge that the fact that she can't fly is basically an accepted disability at this point.

>>36829197
9/10, love it.
Great to see an antagonist STAY AN ANTAGONIST for once ("Rival for life" reminded me of vegeta saying Regenade for life), and I felt they did it well: Dust isn't bitter and is happy with her lot, and she's not out for revenge, but she's STILL basically a sociopath that's completely self absorbed.
She won't actively seek out to cause issues, but hell, she won't work against it either.

Strictly speaking, that in itself is a parody of a series of "scared straight" programs set up between public schools and law enforcement officials to show kids the frightening (and often exaggerated) consequences of drug use and reckless behavior. You can tell Spitfire has spent a lot of time doing DARE lectures.

Twilight Sparkle is a Mary Sue? !gEapIYWEa2Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36822414[View]

I like Twilight Sparkle, and don't really see how she can be a Mary Sue. Protagonist, sure, but the only episode where she seemed really "Sueish" was Magical Mystery Cure. Otherwise, she isn't a blatant self insert of either the writers or Tara Strong. Heck she isn't anywhere remotely like Tara. She isn't considered beautiful, but more importantly she isn't considered *remarkable* in appearance, at most she's described as a little scrawny. She has an ordinary eye color (for a pony) and she's a terrible dancer.

I'm just reading through this and trying to figure out where people would think of her like a Mary Sue: http://katfeete.net/writing/sue.php

Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is off the charts, but Twilight barely registers. Even Applejack gets a higher score, what with the dead parents, and the freckles, and winning an award for being the most well liked pony in all of Ponyville.

There aren't any prophecies about Twilight, specifically. There are ones about the main 6, but the prophecy stuff cuts off pretty much once Twi gets princess'd. I mean, I guess she's royalty now, but she was born to just ordinary parents, who weren't abusive or anything. She's also taking a more passive, supportive role in the background as a princess, and going absolutely nuts for not being able to participate in any of the adventure.

Not everybody likes Twilight. Heck, Sparkler hates her guts for one-upping her organizational skills. Twilight even aggravates her friends at times, though less so as a pretty princess. She doesn't rage against the machine, and is pretty content with the way the world is.

Any character can be portrayed as a Mary Sue, but for all Twilight is ridiculously overpowered at times, I just don't see her fitting in that role most of the time.

>>36829171
she has plenty of character traits

the writers just tend to put her in more episodes because the mane 6 became a old hat

her power isnt much different than that of twilights

i dont find it unreasonable for a new character to have a background of being great with magic otherwise would good would the season 5 finally been if twilight just defeated her and saved the day? this would suck for me because then id never see her again in the future and shes a great character

the reason why i say call flurry heart a mary sue is because she was just born with the ability to do crazy magic

starlight studied and practiced magic just like twilight did. just because it is missing seasons of it doesnt make her a mary sue.

by that logic twilight is as well because the show starts her off as the almighty powerful

>>36829172
Twilight was the original mane character of the show. Therefore she cannot be a Mary Sue. It would be like calling Goku a Mary Sue. A Mary Sue is a character that gets introduced later on, and ends up becoming more powerful and important than the original cast, and steals the spotlight from them. >>36829150

Raking It In Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829199[View]

According to FilmLA, the official Los Angeles film office, My Little Pony: The Movie had a production budget of $6.5 million (https://www.filmla.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/2017_film_study_v3-WEB.pdf). This makes it almost the cheapest feature film made in whole or in part in California last year. This figure is also a LOT less than any estimates I've seen on any brony website. If this budget estimate is correct, then the movie was fantastically profitable, reaping almost a one thousand percent return on investment.

Can this be possible? What are the implications?

I was going to say "best episode this season", but then I saw the kirin episode :p

loved this one, and found it great to see LD again. Really liked that they FINALLY stepped back a bit from the redemptions and let someone stay an antagonist while doing it somewhat realistically-- LD is still just kind of a self centered sociopath, she's not a sadist looking to cause problems she just doesn't CARE.

Plus damn, was that a nice touch when scoots blurts out to dash about not being able to be her because she can't fly. A really good admittance of her handicap.

Additionally, got a real chuckle out of Spitfire doing the van down by the river sketch (though I will admit to being confused for the first 10 seconds until I realized what she was doing XD



8.5/10.

Fuck Continuity: The Episode.

This is what happens when rando writers are brought on, and you don’t have a lore master like Jayson Theissen.

Scoots should know damn well who Lightning Dust is, and she and Twilight should presumably dislike her. Also, Flight to the Finish established that Dash doesn’t give a shit if Scoot can’t fly, nor does she expect her to.


At least watch relevant source material if you’re gonna write an episode.
