Rock and a Hard Place: Equestria Girls and Season Four

Before I begin, it’s rather important to note that the subject matter of this entire article contains very large spoilers for Equestria Girls, the theatrical Friendship is Magic movie. So if you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to skip this analysis.   Go ahead. I can wait. This whole thing was written up beforehand, so I’ve been waiting since before you even got here.   Good? Good. Now I’ll just say it- I liked Equestria Girls. I did. As someone who despised Magical Mystery Cure and thin

The Problem with Adventure Stories

During the self-imposed short vacation I decided to take after getting an article published to the Round Stable (which you should go read if you haven’t already, wink-wink-nudge-nudge), I decided to rewatch some of the episodes of Friendship is Magic that I haven’t seen in a while. I started to notice a distinct issue I had with “adventure stories,” or episodes that place a heavier emphasis on external conflict and lengthy excursions. Namely, when the show decides to engage in worldbuilding by i

My Analysis is Now On The Round Stable!

Hello, several people on here that regularly tuned in to my analysis! I'm overjoyed to announce that the secret project I mentioned before is complete- an original analysis, written by yours truly, has been featured on The Round Stable.   For those unaware, The Round Stable is a pony-centric blog that specializes not only in news, but also in analysis and editorials. Over the span of the last couple months, I've been working with the editors in order to get my writing up to snuff to be put out

[Your regular analysis to return after this important update.]

Hello all.   I honestly didn't expect for my analyses to become quite as popular as they did. Granted, ~130 views per article is not really popular at all. In fact, "popular" may have been a terrible word to use. But for an unknown, up-and-coming writer on the Internet, that's a pretty significant figure.   Anyway, there will be a delay for this blog. For reasons I do not feel I can disclose at this time, the analyses I have written will not be uploaded to this blog until further notice. I c

The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well: Why We Love to Hate It

If there's anything infamous in the brony community, it's the tale of Rainbow Dash's heroism gone sour. Season 2's The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well, written by Merriwether Williams, may be the episode most notorious for being disliked. The episode is notorious for having a regular placement smack at the bottom of "favorite episode" lists the world over. But what exactly about The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well rubs people the wrong way?   The moral of the episode, wrapped up near the end in the show's sig

In Defense of Opposition: Refutations to Common Arguments Against Anti-Twilicorn Fans

Though season three's finale has come and gone, discussions still rage on concerning the future of our little studious princess-in-training. And rage is plentiful, both from the pro-Twilicorn and the anti-Twilicorn. Here I'll answer to thirteen common arguments against the anti-Twilicorn mindset.   Before we begin, it's important to note that there are exceptions to just about everything I say. There are the few anti-Twilicorn fans that are contrary to the norm, and some do react and express t

Magical Mystery Cure: What could it have done better?

Originally posted in the Magical Mystery Cure discussion thread.   Like most of us, I was very hesitant about the whole "Twilight becomes an Alicorn" thing. And actually seeing the episode, it seems like they tried to squeeze two distinct plots together. But the writers have pulled through some terrible decisions before (giving Twilight a long-lost brother, namely). So I was determined to keep myself in check and put faith in the writers. So, did they deliver a satisfying episode?   Not real
