Fluttershy stage fright - really?

Fluttershy stage fright - really?

Saw the new EqG short, Fluttershy musical...     She has shown she's quite capable of singing in front of a crowd. She just needs a villain to defeat, hah. And friendship magic helps, too, at least from my viewpoint, but yeah, some settings have enough of that certain magic, others maybe not. I can empathize with her great potential that only comes out when the stars are aligned, so to speak. Soo, being a Pinkie brain, I would have told her that there's no reason to

S8E7 commentary - "I am so sorry, Celestia. It is the script's fault."

That's what I imagined Twilight telling her. The episode had its highlights, but they were quite timid and enjoyed best without pointing them all out. In the beginning, Celestia thinks theater brings out the best in people. Well, dunno about Equestria, but in our realm there often seems to be lots of jealousy, competitive friction and big egoes involved. When Pinkie showed she counts the times AJ told her not to do something, I thought, well, that shows she cares, hehe. When

I can resist MLP merch, but I can't resist to comment on this:

Today at the drugstore I noticed some MLP merch. There were what looked like Kinder egg knockoffs in Twily, Dashie or Pinkie theme, a bit bigger than the real thing and with air holes at the top, so I don't even know whether there was chocolate in them, and the label was too small to read. I hope Dashie doesn't get her egghead worries over these, haha. But the really odd thing was something I at first thought was a Pez dispenser. But on closer examination it was a Rainbow Dash extendab

S8E5 Grannies Gone Wild - How did I like it?

- Very obvious, predictable lesson. (Title basically spoiler.) - Rainbow Dash. - Old people. - Some other main character ah can't remember right now. - No Fluttershy. - No Pinkie Pie. - No Luna. Couldn't get excited about this one. Was also a bit too far-fetched how a pegasus like Rainbow Dash could get excited about a rollercoaster. She must be pulling way more g's half the time she's flying around. Kudos though for successfully putting a crystal meth reference in a

S8E4 - Fake It 'Til You Make It - picture commentary

As I would say: Another "My Little Phony" episode.   By the way, very funny: Ponies Rarity asked to run her fashion shop before asking Fluttershy, apparently in that order: Rainbow Dash!! Pinkie Pie!! Twilight Sparkle - OK! Applejack - OK! she has experience from an earlier episode, she should have been first choice! Starlight Glimmer - OK! Still better than Twilight. :-P Big Mac!! Cheerilee - OK I guess. Granny Smith - oh dear! DJ Pon3?! CMC!!! Maud ... uh ... no idea, actually.

Season 8 Opening - picture commentary

What a nice celebratory mood the season is starting with, meeting old friend from the movie, connecting with the events of it, and generally welcoming so many characters to the show. Made me feel a bit like when watching Magical Mystery Cure. But of course, as always, challenges arise... ... Lovely how they're gathering from all corners after our little ponies spread the message far and wide through action... ... ... One of those memora

Season 7 finale commentary (with pretty pictures)

FOREWORD: It was hard for me to get into the mood at first when right at the beginning of ep25 I was reminded of an incident a while ago where someone on the forums was inconsiderately posting spoilers about it where it didn't belong (Apparently some Hasbro spoilers I had missed because I only watch the show!) and had his behavior 100% protected and guarded by forum administration. By far not the first time I got loads of horseapples from that direction (and other areas of the fandom), that's wh

S7E24 Uncommon Bond - brief commentary

There are some thematic similarities to the episode Forever Filly, but more basically this was a total unicorn episode. Maud was the only non-unicorn, but she fit in just fine because of the theme. The issue I see portrayed here that the episode sadly didn't even quite touch on due to it being like a unicorn mind bubble is that friendship based on common interests alone, not on interest in each other, is a relatively weak friendship. It's a wholly different level to base it on deeper bonds

S7E23 Secrets and Pies - prief pommentary

I like to say there's no such thing as a bad Fluttershy episode, but I have to and gladly will expand that to Pinkie episodes. Not much more to say here. I just enjoyed it way too much to do an analysis. And I love the idea of half-birthdays. Such a pinkie thing. Pinkie.Scriptum.: When it comes to hugs, she knows what she's doing. If the hug is too tight, you are too tight. Oh and did anyone else see this for a brief moment?... ( I've drawn this myself. https://dowl

S7E22 Once Upon a Zeppelin - brief commentary

Not much to say for me on details here. Slight connections to Fame and Misfortune. When Twilight made a deal with Iron Will, the problem and likely chain of events was obvious. They need to take the helm and do what Iron Will had in mind, but their way, through sincerity. A bit of a soft mutiny, maybe. Twilight could still improve her leadership skills there. Maybe get some assertiveness lessons from Fluttershy? (Oh well, as I said, it was predictable that things would turn out that way in
