Yes, it was! It had me grinning all the way through (until the very end, when it got a bit offhandedly saccharine). So many nifty litte details! How about the three Norns as flying reindeer? But my very favorite detail was Celestia as a rubber liferaft.

I was also glad to hear "Thank Celestia!" back on somepony's lips again.

Happy Hearth's Warming, y'all! One more year to come.

She and Cheerilee deserve better.

You really had to pay careful attention for all the Easter Eggs in this special. I loved the added effort on Spike's animation for his song.

I wonder if anyone at Hasbro cringed at the anti-toy messages Applejack was throwing down?

Yeah, I thought making Flim and Flam merchandisers of mass-produced toys was really ballsy.

Another wonderful thing in this special: Derpy finally has enough screentime and dialogue to develop a personality slightly deeper than "Ditzy Blonde with Crossed Eyes."

But the image that stays with me is the inflatable Celestia pool float. I would give serious dollars to own one, and I don't even have a pool.

They knocked this special out of the park. 10/10. Way to end the season, folks!

First 4 reviews are all 10/10? Has that ever happened? we're either quality deprived, or this one was just god tier. I tend to think it's both.

That was a great episode. Nice and relaxing atmosphere througout and it's good seeing some more of the ponies that barely showed up in season 8.

Oh, so Belldandy, Urd and Skuld are retarded anime ripoffs of Clothos, Lachesis and Atropos?

Good to know.

I guess? That makes about as much sense as saying they're a ponification of the Three Musketeers.

I was thinking more ghost of christmas past, present and yet to come, but with "yet to come" being less dark.

>>36829381
>>36829382
Agreed. I won't say 10/10, but it was a really good and comfy special. really loved the interaction between the characters (EVERYONE had great chemistry) and nothing felt out of character.

The only one I think felt kind of weak in plot was spike because his was so one dimensional and he really didn't have another support character to play off of like the others did.

That being said, this episode REALLY made me want a full on Dash/discord episode given their playing off each other in this episode and mutual status as essentially each being the "best" friend of fluttershy of each gender.

Lots of cute animation and designs too-- I SHOULD hate flurry heart since she's such an obvious toy push, but they manage to make her cute in her mannerisms (And that star outfit).

The only really big issue I have is the overly deus ex machina resolution and sugariness of the ending, which discord even POINTED OUT, ironically enough.

9/10.

>>36829383
>I was also glad to hear "Thank Celestia!" back on somepony's lips again.

true that!

>>36829385
The sad thing is that marble's probably so much of a Neet that she'll never have the courage to actually ask a guy out and end up living at her parents farm all her life.

On that note, damned, did I love limestone in this one. She's a MUCH better foil to pinky than maud, and her angry new yorker accent actually makes her rather adorable, in a strange way.


>>36829391
her voice and mannerism seems WAAAY different than she was before.

Before she seemed kind of "slow" and derpy, but in this one she comes off as, well, drunk. Kind of a "pretty airhead drunk" kind of feel.

its strange that they're FINALLY letting her talk again after such a long time of being forced to be silent by hasbro.

>>36829388
To be honest, I'm going to sound pessimistic, but I'll say "deprived". Its a good episode, but I don't think its 10/10.

She came off to me as someone who tries to sound and act professional in her job without making a mistake (but fearing she would). I know several people IRL who start to talk slow and very articulated in meetings, very unlike they usually act.

I don't know, she didn't sound too nervous to me. Even when she messed up (talking about the package being sent to applejack) she didn't seem worried for HERSELF but rather that it'd be bad if AJ opened it.

I liked it.
I wonder if I could get in on that secret santa.
Spike would be easy to shop for. just get him gems
Rarity, prolly like botanical oil infuser or something cool she wouldnt know she needs, trendy is key.
RD, maybe a book, on like wonderbolts history, or maybe something for Tank, couldnt go wrong there.
AJ, a hat band. she doesnt have one and it would look cool.
Pinkie. Maybe the hardest. Honestly, maybe like a new saddle bag, something she could use.
Fluttershy. Maybe the easiest. An orchid, just cuz she would prolly like taking care of it.
Twilight Sparkle. Books are a good idea, but better would be a vintage or historical relic given how much she likes antiqueing. maybe like some wall art?

>>36829385
that made me sqee

u need new reaction pics
9/10 is still a promoter score
good take

Yes, but at those instances she didn't speak slow and carefully either.

To me she really looked like she tried to act more professional than she normally would be. Switching from this phasade (e.g. when she asked "name") to to her normal self (when worrying for the package).

To be fair, Dickens totally ripped off Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos when he made those spirits. But even ignoring that, the show already did those, and they weren't prescient or capricious wish granters, the way the Gift Givers (and the Fates) were.

Yeah. But I liked its being an image of Celestia. Incongruous. Cheerfully impudent, with a hint of lèse-majesté verging on blasphemy.

Did you notice what Rarity did there, with her cart in The Cart Before The Ponies?

>>36829436
Uh, no, I hadn't. But I'm not 100% sure that's a caricature of Celestia, It could just be a generic queen (Queen Swan).

I sure don't know any other white queens with a crown and yoke for regalia, and Rarity was going for the most audacious cart. It's not 100% sure though. I suspect Rarity'd be in a bit of trouble if it was.
