  1. I actually love that double episode too; there was a lot in it that it did well, and "Equality Starlight" is one of the best villains MLP has had - the finale of S5 is great too. I make the distinction between her old, evil self (interestingly, Make A Bear only sells that version of her manestyle) and the new, insecure but adorable student of Twilight - Similar to the NMM/Luna pairing. Personal worst? still trying to decide; probably either Princess Spike or Where The Apple Lies (with Honest Apple being a contender too)

    sunset shimmer: like or dislike, and why?

    I see the opposite of that in Starlight, she is deeply insecure - so insecure that her freakout over her friend leaving for university left her a twisted maniac; her dependence on her relationship with Trixie stops her giving THAT mare a pointed object lesson on not writing cheques your horn can't cash, and so forth. The S6 finale is as much about a transition within Starlight as about the changelings - and that she sees herself as defeated then rescued by Twilight (which is actually true of Sunset, but while Twi can get credit for putting her on a better path after Starlight accepted the cost of her revenge was too high, Spike has been a better mentor to Starlight than Twi has. Which is fine - what Starlight actually needed was emotional support and a chance to grow, and Twi gave her that freely. Sunset was the Diamond Tiara of Celestia's school, both in Equestria and at Canterlot High. She felt entitled to an easy path to power, and when Celestia wasn't forthcoming with that, tried to steal that power from Twilight. In contrast to Starlight, she WAS defeated by Twi, and rather roughly - the Rainbow Bitchslap of Harmony was in full effect and left her literally in a smoking hole in the ground. Twi (again!) offered her a better path, but it was the other girls of the EqG group that actually put that into effect, offering her the support she needed to get past the retribution she had earned from the rest of the school. When that was threatened, she fled back to equestria for a fix, even facing up to her shame with Celestia to find a path back to her "safe place" Interestingly enough though, when she is reset back to her first arrival by Wallflower, it is Princess Celestia she cries out to for help...

    Thread started as some recurring roleplay over in @totally's boop thread, back end of 2017 (combined with some discussion of coffee) so one of the regulars there started a separate thread for it. Was pretty popular last summer, then got trolled quite a bit and a lot of the regulars stopped being.

    There is a difference between acceptance and redemption though - the latter assumes the character will be willing and able to change in order to conform with expected behavour; the former that the others will be able to work around or ignore the issues they have with the character, To give examples - GlimGlam is the latter (I think trying to fix everything with magic is a unicorn trait though, given Twi does that too) but Pharynx is the former.

    That's very much in the eye of the beholder though; at what point do others stop trying to be there for them?

    Very Pony though - given all the redemption arcs, Fizzlepop and so forth. or Sergeant Calhoun from Wreck it Ralph..

    How would the series handle SBWM Luna?

    Twi has a spell for that though - she used it to make them into breezies (which also begs the question why she wouldn't just use that spell instead stealing of the perl in the movie) given we have infectious vampirism in the show (AKA flutterbat), lycanthropy might be on the list too.

    Quite a depressing character outline, but seen worse. Original Changelings (if there still are any) are not going to be popular with ponies. they don't seem to care about the glitterbugs (maybe they just don't recognise them as changelings?) And I haven't seen any negative reactions to kirins, although you could understand niriks not being invited to parties. Not sure why they would? The wings of a pegasus are just the focus of their Wingpower magic - everything else they can do (cloud walking and wrangling, flight and heavy lifting, tornados) are applied Wingpower, not crude mechanical lift.
