  1. Yeah, I'm totally fine with her the way she is. It's peculiar and sometimes funny, but if she was more like the others, that would be boring, even if you consider HER boring. AJ is being AJ. That's character stability, if you will. Down-to-earth. She's like that for a reason.
  2. That can't be it, since some other characters didn't have any of that either. And it can be temporarily reverted at any time anyway if an episode script demands it.
  3. "Steve Piranha, PuddingPonyPal, Prospekt and 1 other brohoof this" Pinkie Pie is happy. (P is my favorite letter. That's why yellow is my favorite color. ... Because it begins with a P.)
  4. The other day my young niece told me she knows all the ponies' names. She began: Twilight, Pinkie Pie, ... Rainbow Dash, ... Rarity, ... Fluttershy ... and ... uh ... aaaaand ... AH! And Spike the dragon! :-) The backgrounding is real. It's not a baseless fandom joke. xD

    Astute observation. Maybe he's trying to compensate with all his extravagant extroversion.
  6. I thought the black spots weren't part of Luna's cutie mark. Last time, when it was taken away, only the moon vanished. I assumed it's just her natural coat (and that it's naturally symmetrical). Hm, maybe that was just draining the power from the cutie mark. Interesting dreams ponies have. Pinkie surfing on the gummyboard, wearing shades, I like that a lot, heh. And Derpy as queen, on her side another ... background character. ;-) Starlight's dragon toothbrush was funny. Twilight her frequent freakout self, but totally understandable why she couldn't calm herself. Still so much admiration for the regal sisters and projection of crucial importance to Equestria. (She underestimates the importance of everypony else's contribution.) The episode was full with playfulness, action and lovely little details and a new insight into ponies' daily life. I will close with one of my favorite pictures from olden times that immediately came to mind when realizing the theme of this episode. I call it "Maneheart"...

Hm, maybe that was just draining the power from the cutie mark. EDIT: I think Luna's coat IS spotted as indicated in an earlier episode, but the spots were transferred here purely for practical reasons, since Luna's cutie mark is white and Celestia's coat is, too. It would have been nearly invisible on her. (Personally I would have chosen a black cloud/radiant effect around the moon to provide minimum contrast, but maybe that wouldn't have fit the art style. Still could have just given the moon a black outline though.) Interesting dreams ponies have. Pinkie surfing on the gummyboard, wearing shades, I like that a lot, heh.

Early-on this episode reminded me of one of my favorite pictures from olden times that I call "Maneheart"...

    Please not even insinuations about coming episodes in these threads.
  9. Oh my, I almost posted a potential episode spoiler, but then Pinkie jumped in front of the camera just in time. ^^

    While it was a setup for a specific lesson, the setup itself incorporated the same problem as in Fluttershy Leans In. And it also reminded me of Parental Gildeance. One crucial element of the problem was ignored. Rarity TOTALLY wanted AJ to be a judge, for her honesty. Then Rarity lectured her about just that as if it was AJ's fault ONLY. After AJ realized what she did and apologized, I absolutely expected Rarity to at least mention her responsibility in this, but nope. Not that and also no bit of leniency in her attitude. "I wish you'd realized it before you ruined the fashion show." - Well, Rarity, I wish YOU had simply COMMUNICATED that to her before she ruined the fashion show! I hope this bias isn't becoming a theme, because it disses the all-encompassing theme of personal responsibility. Most entertaining scene was with Strawberry Sunrise. (And I'm not just saying that because he has a pinkieish voice. Which BTW surprises me wasn't Andrea Libman, but a Maggie Blue O'Hara. Not sure whether she's voiced ponies before.)
  11. I recently made a referral code bonus webpage http://starcitizen.dowlphin.de that gives a good introduction to the game. I played with the idea of entering the whole advertising game since my altruism focus doesn't seem to get me anywhere, but the more I read up on it, the more off-putting it became. So I'm always trying to get a little caress for my soul without playing in the hands of an ugly system, thus doing open, sincere, more personal advertising. Star Citizen is gonna be an amazing game, unlike anything before, and I am very excited about being a part of the unfolding project. Now is a good time to join, because soon there will be a major update, and more generally early adopters are being rewarded. Check it out and share it and you'd do me a tremendous heartwarming favor if you used my referral code as mentioned on that sweet little webpage I made. :-) (Oh and in case it tells you somewhere on signup that you need a quadcore-CPU and don't have one (yet): People have confirmed it can run on dualcores if they're performing well (e.g. somewhat overclocked and/or of newer generation). And it generally only affects the performance I think, not the ability to run it at all.)

    It can work though. I enjoyed seeing Fluttershy not repeat old patterns, but standing her ground, and generally if a Fluttershy episode isn't spectacular, I'm fine with that, because Fluttershy, haha. Her presence alone makes my day.

    So the CMC help Feather Bangs out and he just totally spontaneously opened up to them, and it's totally forgotten how he rudely intruded on and interrupted Bic Mac's private moments with Sugar Belle? He was being a huge jerk and not even one remark about how that might not be okay? Felt very hurried and pushed, when instead they could have shortened the ridiculous musical competition near the end a bit, since I found myself speeding that one up, which is shocking for me when watching a new MLP episode. Feather Bangs seemed like a mere metaphor, not a character. Generally the 'formula' of the episode felt very familiar to me, even though it might have been a somewhat different theme before. It had some fun moments, but the 'valley was long and wide'. P.S.: I didn't vote in the poll, because I rate this episode as a precise 3.5/5. Neither 3 nor 4 would be accurate.
  14. There's also a 'hidden' important philosophical theme in this: If you can accept that puppies have different interests than adult dogs, imagine the same for animals that are often seen as 'cute'. You might start to treat all kinds of animals with that in mind. Take pigeons: Some of them are cool, some are jerks. You can observe that wherever there's lots of food around. Age often changes personality, too. Animals are people.

    @Zel Dashie should have told her parents "Hold your horses!". ^^
