Third Day Mark: Seriously.

Why do grown-ass men watch this.    Honestly.   Not trolling, just confused as farking shiat.


For the same reason I watch Adventure Time and Regular Show. 

Real life is full of cynicism, vitriol and whatnot. Some of it I spew it myself. 

Sometimes, I just need to step back and watch something that is simple and fun, as a sort of detoxing process.

Twilight Farkle: and forget scoots for a sec, if you wanna talk orphans, where the FARK are aj's parents at? only granny smith and big mac were around when she got her cutie mark and came home, but now there's an applebloom...


static1.wikia.nocookie.net

Eeyup, orphan. They discreetly touched on it by means of twin shooting stars a couple of times during the Apple Family Reunion / Thanksgiving episode.


AJ's whole backstory makes sense if you look at it like this...

Applebloom was virtually a newborn baby when AJ left for Manehattan. She left because her parents had just died and she was sick of the apple gig.

Then, she saw that rainboom headed for home and knew it was time to go back.

Dead parents also explains why she's such a workaholic... she feels everything is unstable and could be lost at the drop of a hat if she doesn't keep control of it... because she lost her parents as a filly, so the farm, Granny, everything else could go just as easily.

So there's a comic book shop in Canterlot that sells enchanted comic books with the ability to literally suck you into them and trap you inside unless you can defeat the villain. I suppose you could even die inside of them, and they sell these books to anyone, even kids. I don't know, maybe someone should look into that?

cynicalminion:from season one's open, continuity went out the window.  twilight herself is reading the story of celestia and luna, but by the time nightmare moon is defeated, somehow she's surprised by "sister?"


Not really. "Once upon a time, in the magical land of Equestria..." (narrator and Twilight) is the unclassified version. Technically, it mentions only that there were two sisters, one of whom became the Mare in the Moon/Nightmare Moon. Twilight never saw the classified version that includes the facts "It's not a myth, and, oh, by the way, Celestia has a sister that she hasn't mentioned in a thousand years." When Twilight started to figure it out, Celestia's response was "...but you simply must stop reading those dusty old books!" (They don't call her Trollestia for nothing. The whole thing was a setup - make some friends, because you're the missing element, and it won't work if you know about it until you figure it out for yourself.)

oh, and another continuity failure that's been bugging me.  if the guys in cloudsdale were the ones RD raced because they were teasing fluttershy, they'd know darn well she'd done a sonic rainboom.  they might not think she could pull off another one, but that's not how it's phrased...


*clickity clickity click, watchwatchwatch* "I'll allow it!"


also, who's best pony?

This.

Also, the characters are flawed enough to be interesting to adults. The smart one's OCD to the point of defeating herself, the country bumpkin's a workaholic, the stylish one falls to pieces the minute anything goes wrong, the egomaniac's covering up her inferiority complex, the happy shiny party animal is actually bipolar, and the cutest, shyest, politest one of all is prone to fits of violent rage.

But mostly because cartoons are fun, and cartoons with a fanbase as weirdly creative and insanely prolific (or is it the other way around?) as this one just adds to the fun.

/FUN!


Or, instead of the Stylish bit, you could say the Posh one is actually a country bumpkin trying to cover up her roots by acting like the stylish one.

cynicalminion: true, but i also like the idea that celestia's the only one who gave up the connection with the elements.

oh, right, add THAT to the bs list... five elements of harmony are known, only when all six are present can nightmare moon be defeated.  ok.  now discord.  the two of you did what with the six that then turned around and bit you in the ass, AFTER they just helped you beat a bad guy.

so even though we know celestia's got less than nuttin', i wanna see luna clean house on the dark side...


I'm sticking with the tinfoil here. Consider...

The uncensored version of history reads something like this:

Celestia+Luna vs Discord? Knew of all six, had all six (three apiece) used all six.
Celestia vs Luna? Knew of all six, had all six (let's assume Luna wasn't exactly interested in harmony at this point in her character arc), used all six, and there are plenty of bananas on the moon.

1000 years later, however, Twilight's a grad student who doesn't necessarily know Celestia ever had a sister. She's just found a book about the elements of harmony, an imminent catastrophe dating back 1000 years, and has just been told not to bother studying it any further. (Celestia knows damn well what that suggestion's going to prompt Twilight to do...)

Twilight: So, about these elements of harmony?
Trollestia: Gosh, Twilight, only five are known. I haven't a clue what the sixth might be! (It's only been right there on your plot since magic kindergarten, but I'm not telling you that! Tee-hee!)

Two seasons later:

Trollestia: I have every confidence you will succeed, and when you do, you'll get a sweet promotion. Off you go, Twily!
Luna: Seriously?
Trollestia: Eeyup.
Twilight: (Delegates the job to Spike and a wife-flinging brother)
Luna: OK, she's got the leadership thing down. Time to break out the really arcane stuff? *conjures Starswirl's book*
Trollestia: Eeyup.
And thus is set in motion the story arc for Season 3.

th08.deviantart.net

tl;dr: Celestia always knows more about what's going on than she lets her underlings know. You don't win the game by following a walkthrough. You can't self-actualize unless you figure out the big mysteries for yourself. Or maybe she just doesn't like plot spoile-PHRASING!

Seconds after entering the book: "Is this... Maretropolis?" we pan out to see lots of background ponies in the street. Somepony else is going to have to go frame-by-frame and average things out to see if they can extract subpixel resolution, and even then, I think only the animators will know for sure.

Probably the same sort of merchant who sold the Alicorn Amulet to Trixie. Magicians get overpowered artifacts, baby dragons get enchanted comics (maybe the comics have failsafes, like a holodeck usually does), merchant shrugs, "they knew what they were getting into, I say let 'em crash!"

Bats, in which Applejack and Fluttershy fight over the pest extermination practices of Sweet Apple Acres

Rarity Takes Manehattan, in which Rarity gets her fall line stolen and becomes a total biatch to everyone

And, Pinkie Apple Pie, where Pinkie discovers she may be related to the Apple Family.
