I lol'd on the line, "Because of the SHAME."
This ep had one of the deepest and most complex morals I've seen in this show. It was couched at the end as, "Don't try too hard to be perfect," which is a moral that the target demographic can understand. But the real moral was basically, "If you think you're a failure, try internalizing a different set of values." That's not something that can really be grasped by an eight-year-old.
In previous episodes, Twilight's obsessive anxieties have all proved to be illusory and unnecessary. But in this one, they were all real-- as long as you live in the community of the library and subscribe to its code. To escape, Dusty Pages had to reject both.
Not a moral for the target demographic.
Also, great names for the library ponies.
