Wrap-up Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831252[View]

Looking back on a decade of Faust's ponies, I find myself thinking about what originally drew me into the fandom. In my case, it was watching the video of "Winter Wrap Up" -- just the song, excised from the episode (S1E11). I was enchanted, and I walked into Equestria and never came out. But I rarely encountered anything in the show later on that had the magical force of that first video.

What was, and is, so special about it? What was there in this one number that drew me in to a franchise that I had previously classed with Rainbow Bright and the Care Bears as a farrago of meretricious and cynical cuteness mobilized in the service of corporate greed? Here are some answers that have occurred to me.

1. The "Winter Wrap Up" number is quiet, modest, and serious. Apart from Twilight and Spike's getting buried in a fall of snow at one point, there are no sight gags. Nothing funny happens, and there is no laughter. On the other hand, nothing epic happens -- nothing magical, explosive, or portentous. The subject of the song is the absence of magic, which is forbidden to Twilight by local custom ("the earth pony way"). At first appearances, this is a work song.

2. And yet it is mythic and magical. It deals with the fundamental stuff of mythology: the cycle of years and lives, birth and death, the melting away of winter and the coming of spring -- Botticelli's "Primavera" redone with cartoon horses. It is both solemn and gay (in the original sense). It is also magical, because this is a world in which the sun and moon do not rise and set, and the seasons do not come and go, without the intervention of labor and intelligence. Unless the Houyhnhnms work together, the clouds will not part to let the sun's warmth and beauty in, the southern birds will not return, the snow will not go away, and winter will be eternal. Only laboring intelligence can shift the axis of the world. If Disney had animated this number, the birds, ferrets, and bunnies would have been running around chipping in, brushing away snow with their tails, and bringing ribbons to Rarity in their beaks. The MLP number presents us with a fantasy mode of interaction between culture and nature that is less obvious and harder to define.

3. The main (mane) characters are very delicately individualized. Pinkie does not bounce, shriek, and emit balloons and confetti; Rarity does not posture and preen; Rainbow Dash does not boast, compete, and wh

Nope. Never registered a name here.

Animation has always been a thing for me because, before digital graphics and green screens, animation was the most practical way to realize a story in visual form as far as movies and TV went.

I can see a lot of influences in Song In The Sky. Everything from Lovecraft to Hideaki Anno's works. Toss in the mix of modern and older mid 20th century architecture and you get a very interesting backdrop for a story.

The limited animation was part of the problem that could not be overcome due to time constraints and limited animation resources to work from. His second episode will have vastly improved resources due to having hired someone with far more experience with the software he was using to render the video.

Interesting. So-- the pilot wasn't a finished product, but a sort of high-grade animatic? There ought to be a word for that.

The events taking place were... actually pretty well written? But the character interactions, the dialogue, the choices... pretty much your usual schlock. Not to mention a lesson that was much better handed in season 1? What's sad is that this is probably one of the better episodes this season.

No time for them anymore now that loose ends are being wrapped up and various characters get their final showings.

On one hand, I think we would have seen way more of the young six if there'd be a season 10, on the other hand their story arch was pretty much completed in season 9.

For those who don't understand the lack of full disclosure by people who work at a show level produced for a corporation like Disney or Hasbro, one must first realize that there are very few places where people can obtain employment. You fuck up at one place and have that splattered around the industry and fandom at the same time, your odds shrink to zero, even for people with decades of success in producing and writing for shows.

Thus, you rarely get those who rely on the fact they'll never get work again if they piss off one too many suits at the major studios or the people who own the studios.

Hell, you don't even need to piss someone off if they think you're too expensive to keep around. Look at what happened to OK KO! and Ian J.Q. last month. He and his show were canned. No reasons given. No controversy or drama. Just a nice kid with a fun show being fired after three seasons.

A brief update to tidy up some loose ends.

It's certain a second MLP movie will be released via Paramount Pictures. The studio has taken the URL MyLittlePonyMovie.com and the redirect gives you their logo as a place holder page.

No surprise given the change of distribution announced months ago. It will be fun to see MLP billboards in Hollywood again when the next movie is released.

That's a good way to look at it. Everyone who has seen the leaked e-mail infographics of the Gen 5 development time line are already predicting a two season train wreck. The 2021 movie will tell the story once we know more about what stuck and what was rejected from the 2016 plans.

The newest problem exposed in one line of a graphic posted either here or the Russian Hacker thread shows that Hasbro will not have a contract to show their series on any of the Discovery cable channels.

Could MLP Gen 5 go directly to Netflix as has a number of other series reboots? Given that Netflix has founded their own animation studio, they appear to be quite hungry for damn near any quality nostalgia properties.

Yeah.
Like, its a good moral of AJ wanting to tell the truth, but I feel it kind of undermines the idea of Celestia being at east leaving everything in the mane six's hands if they're unable to fix things up here.
I would have rather had Twilight find out about issues and have burst in on the other 5, with it turning out that, YES, they WERE able to fix things up even without twilight's help since it was their expertise.


Also, fucking hell they kind of have only themselves to blame for the weather issue when they put someone so utterly idiotic in charge of it to the point all it took was a little filly basically telling him to fuck things up as "advice" to screw things up.

That's like having Zephyr as a royal guard, except without the "Just as planned" bit.

The first few times Twilight tried to raise the Sun and Moon
SHE COULD BARELY CONTROL IT
> like when she fought Tirek with all 3 Alicorn magics.
She also struggled when she had the amulet the 1st time
but seeing her in this episode raise it perfectly with Celestia and Luna was a great way to show her progression towards being ready to take the mantle.

I think one fan (upon the China release) said something along the lines of, "This just made the Sparity Ship a whole lot more stronger". Which one could agree with, especially when you take Pinkie's line at the end in or out of context. Also when one really thinks about it, episodes like this, have different points of view giving to them from the brony/pegasister community.
Some may look at it as a closing to the Sparity ship, others (as mentioned above), see it as strengthening it, some see it as an episode that didn't belong in this final season (along some pervious episodes before), and some see it as Spike possibly getting a new ship tease giving to him, in the form of Gabby, etc..., etc....And even through, I'm one of those that support the Sparity ship, and see this episode as indeed making it stronger.
I see Rarity's actions, as not of one just being selfish (at times she was) or jealous (which she mostly was), but I like to take DisneyFanatics2364's "Bride of Discord" (Chapter/Episode 6 [14:07-19:37]), as an example of Rarity releasing how Spike really means to her, and how much she's falling for him, but never really noticed till, 1. "The Best Gift Ever", the first 20secs of the mid-season 9 finale, and now with this episode, and him spending time with Gabby, instead of her, or even taking time to notice her.
This reminded me a lot/if somewhat of Applejack's reaction towards Spike spending time with Rarity, and not noticing her.That's how I take Rarity's reactions in this episode, somewhat of being in that same camp as Applejack's in "BOD". Heck @BornAgainBrony said it best: QuoteThis episode is playing with romance in the same way that "Tanks for the Memories" played with death. It's played as a friendship episode, but considering they used Rarity and Spike to set this off, and the fact that Spike clearly has one on Gabby now, it's pretty obvious that this story is a love triangle at its core.
They pushed things just far enough to make this episode into the ultimate shipping war without revealing for certain if Rarity is harboring feelings for Spike, and it's bloody brilliant! So just because it may seem otherwise, Josh Haber knew what he was doing.
In fact, if you saw the trailer for the finale (and possibly the final 2 episodes), there is some Sparity moment's snuck in there, as a bit of a follow-up to this episode (kinda), and pervious episodes before it (from earlier seasons, and the prior season), as well as "TBGE"So I sa
