So Pony Life Is Kinda Nice? EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831934[View]

After having seen all 6 currently released episodes, I thought I’d stop in and give my opinion of Pony Life.

Right off the bat, let’s all agree nothing will EVER live up to FiM. Heck, even the later seasons of FiM couldn’t live up to the first few seasons. So it would be unfair to compare the 2, so I won’t. That being said, Pony Life itself can be a fairly cozy, fun, well done cartoon. Tabitha’s voice acting is still an absolute 11/10, and the writers have done Rarity great justice so far. Sure Pinkie is still spastic as fuck, but it’s a far more grounded and coherent show than I expected. And yes, the world of Equestria is basically gone, and all depth and meaning has been removed from absolutely everything except their personalities, but there’s still a good deal to enjoy, even if as a casual viewer.

My favorite episode so far, and the only one I’ve seen multiple times, is the one about Applejack’s hat, episode 3. If that episode were part of FiM and expanded to a full 22 minutes, it would have ranked up there as an all time favorite. So I’m glad Pony Life exists, if just because we get to see more of our girls.

Diana Moon Glampers Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36832060[View]

Has anyone noticed that "The Cutie Map" is a ponification of Kurt Vonnegut's 1961 short story, “Harrison Bergeron,” greatly beloved of right-wing thinkers? In it, the U.S. is governed by a Handicapper General named Diana Moon Glampers, whose minions assign handicaps to everyone to ensure that nobody has any grounds for feeling themselves superior to anyone else. The beautiful person is obliged to wear an ugly wig and frumpy clothing, the brilliant person wears headphones that produce thought-preventing noise, the ballerina wears lead shoes, and so on.

"Starlight Glimmer" is an obvious play on "Diana Moon Glampers." No?

Now that you mention it, I do vaguely recall reading that story for a high school paper. The parallels are pretty spot on. Vonnegut was a very astute individual and his writing style and rules were very influential in my college writing.

Hayagriva Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831980[View]

From the Wikipedia article on the Lord Hayagriva, an avatar of Lord Vishnu:

"The Horse Avatar of Lord Vishnu is seen as pulling the sun up to the heavens every day, bringing light to darkness. Hayagriva's consort is Marichi, the goddess of the rising sun, more accurately the sun's light which is the life force of all things, and which is seen as the female aspect of Hayagriva. Marichi represents the essence of the power of creation of the cosmos. Whereas Hayagriva represents the other male aspect.

"In several other sources he is a white horse who pulls the sun into the sky every morning."

Hayagriva ("Horse-Neck") is "worshipped as the god of knowledge and wisdom, with a human body and a horse's head, brilliant white in color."

Sound familiar? You bet. Now -- did Lairen Faust know all this? Or is this a Jungian archetype of the collective unconscious? Or just a coincidence?

Other scattered noticings; Twilight's cutiemark is the unicursal hexagram of Thelema. Thelema is a religion which synthesizes all three main Abrahamic religions, Gnostic paganism, and Dharmic religions (theravada buddhism/hinduism). They believe love is the most important thing, especially a ‘fraternal’ love. AKA; friendship. They also are a religion that deals with occult philosophy or, ‘magic.’

How Would you Have Ended MLP FIM Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36832018[View]

Er -- at the end of Season 3?

Oh, maybe not. There were a dozen episodes or so in the later seasons that were good enough to keep me hanging on. I would hate to have missed "Power Ponies," "Tanks for the Memories," "Saddle Row Review," and maybe 8-10 other episodes in S4-8, including the two-parters about Glimglam. But as the writers piled up new species and new characters to try to keep the juices of novelty flowing through the narrative, the outlines of Faust's original vision slowly faded from view. By the time we got to S9, the only thing that was keeping me engaged was the current of snarky electricity energizing the Big Baddies.

I liked the Celestiafication of TS -- long and tall, with living hair -- in "The Last Problem." But I thought packing Celestia and Luna off to Silver Senility Farm at the end was exceedingly lame. We were never given to understand why those two lived for centuries while all other ponies rose and fell like the flowers of the field. (There may be an explanation in the "Book of the Two Sisters," but I never read that.) The fundamental disjunction between mortal and immortal ponies established the Two Sisters as gods or demigods in the very first episode. I wish that disjunction had been maintained, and that the show had ended in a way that returned to the theme of mortality versus divinity.

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36832020

I would have been happy if season 5 was the end. The show took a really steep dive after that, with notable exceptions of course for a few perfect 10/10 Beyond Godlike episodes. The song was very nice as well, though Let The Rainbow Remind You was better to close out a finale.

I would have kept Twilight in her normal sized body, or at least shown Celestia and Luna in smaller bodies, like we got to see in FiM Part 2, to demonstrate they return to normal size after relinquishing power. I also would have made a point to say Twilight isn’t immortal, and the throne will pass on more frequently.

While I'm not a big fan of most stories told after Season 3, ending the series before the final hour and a half would have cost us many wonderful characters and stories that never would have been produced.

I hate that the Kirin only got one episode at the end of the line. More Hipogriff stories would have been nice as well. Didn't care either way about the dragons. The MLP Movie wasn't as awful in context of what came in the series afterwords.

From the first three pages of the first comic, it has some potential for fleshing things out in the weeks following the coronation. It isn't animated but the comic is pretty gud in turns.
