  1. Hello. I decided to write this little fanfic because of the episode "Applebuck Season". In it, Applejack is staying up all night bucking apples so she is sleepy and mishears ingredients, which leads to some muffins being made that give some background ponies food poisoning. They're all fine now, but I imagined what if after getting better, Lyra becomes afraid to eat muffins again because she's worried she'll get food poisoning again? Then, I came up with this. It's mostly dialogue, and very short, but it's my first attempt at MLP fanfic. One morning, Lyra was prancing down the streets of Ponyville. She thought she'd stop for breakfast at Sugarcube Corner. When she got there, Bon Bon was sitting at a table, eating a muffin. "Hey, Lyra!" said Bon Bob, "want some of my muffin?". "Umm...no thanks," said Lyra, backing away hesitantly. "What?!" said Bon Bon, "that's not like you, Lyra! Normally, you barely leave any for me!" Lyra giggled. She was used to teasing like this from her best friend. "Well, the thing is, I'm scared," she said. "Scared?! Why in Equestria would you be scared of muffins?!" said Bon Bon. "Well, remember a few days ago when we ate those muffins and got sick? Pinkie Pie herself said that they weren't baked goods, but rather baked bads. I don't want to get sick again!". "Ly, it was a fluke!" said Bon Bon, "Pinkie said that she will always check the ingredients before making the muffins, and besides, they tasted terrible. We would've spat them out but we were afraid of being rude. But I say that if you don't like it, just spit it out." Just then, Pinkie Pie bounded over. "What's going on, you two wacky mares?" she said. "It's Lyra," said Bon Bon, "she's worried that the Baked Bads incident will happen again so she doesn't want to eat a muffin." "Don't worry, Lyra," said Pinkie Pie, "I now have a policy against having ponies who are sleepy help make the cakes, I check to see what they put and discard any muffins with yucky ingredients." She said this all in one breath, lay her head on her front hooves at the word "sleepy", and made a silly disgusted face at the word, "yucky". By this time, Bon Bon had finished her muffin, so Pinkie Pie ran out and got Lyra another muffin. She set down the muffin and said, as though Lyra was a stubborn foal, "Come on, Lyra-Wyra, just one bite!" Lyra leaned over the muffin and drooled, but she still looked hesitant. Then, Pinkie Pie burst into song, singing very quickly to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: "Lyra should eat the muffin. 'Cause it's very nice and sweet. She's always liked my muffins. And I'll make sure they're good to eat. Bon Bon ate hers and she's fine. Lyra will like hers, I bet. And if she eats the muffin, She'll be very happy yet!" With each lyric, Lyra's eyes and mouth opened wider and wider and she leaned in closer to the muffin, eventually taking one little bite. It tasted so good that she instantly forgot about being scared and scarfed down the whole thing. "Atta filly, Lyra," said Bon Bon. Lyra gave a satisfied smile and hoof-bumped Bon Bon, the two went on their merry way, and Lyra was never afraid to eat a muffin again.
  2. What'd'y'know? I followed through with the schedule. But for how long, Chris? For how long?! ... ... ... I don't know who Chris is. *Saves Draft* Well, boy howdy! I've got my work cut out for me! That there episode is the biggest bumper crop o' writing I ever laid eyes on until Look Before You Sleep gets here. Big Mac says this episode is too big for me to handle on my own, but I told him to kill himself. I mean, if I trucked through "Simple Ways," I could chuck through any episode, good or bad! So, why hold the fun train back any further? I better get kickin', these bad jokes aren't gonna generate absolute silence on their own! Howdy, there, poniteers! This here is a spoilers review, so if you haven't seen this episode yet, ask a friend for help! - - - - - - - - So it's applebuckin' season here in Ponyville. Applejack and Big Mac I assume usually harvest the apples together, but since Big Mac has mysteriously sprained his...torso...it's up to Applejack to do it all on her own. Big Mac doesn't believe she can do it on her own, using his fancy mathematics to muddy the issue, but Harplejarkle says "fuck you I can eat all these apples!" Pretty sure until, like, that school newspaper episode, this is the most dialogue Big Mac has. Meanwhile, Applejack accuses Big Mac of rape. So Applejack's voice suddenly gets higher than the prologue as a stampede of stampedin' cows arrive to buck everything up. Pinkie Pie is having fun with the rumbling, but her fun has to end when Applejack and her dog Winona rally up them there stampede'a'hamburgers. Turning them away from Ponyville, the citizens cheer as she and her dog save the day. They should probably put up a wall or something to, you know, prevent illegal aliens from crossing the Ponyville border. Just a thought. The Mayor is stoned. Just saying. After conversing with the Canadians-I mean-cows, she gets one last hoorah from the ponies as she returns to her work. They decide to throw her a party, and as Twilight is giving her stupid speech, Rainbow Dash interrupts her to start one of the very first MLP memes. Doesn't that sound so awesome? I'm sure that made three of you explode or something. Anyway, Applejack is late to the ceremony because she's stoned out of her goddamned mind. Have you ever stopped to, like, look at the rainbows, man? Stoned from prolonged exposure to apple trees, Applejack finds her own reflection very amusing. So does Pinkie, but she's always coked up. Twilight finds this highly concerning, so she goes to visit Applejack where she finds her passed out by the trees. Applejack remains high as a kite as she explains to Twilight what applebuck season is, and why she's doing it all on her own. When Twilight asks what happened to the rest of the apple family from the pilot, Applejack says she's killed them all and so she's on her own. Twilight thinks that she should get some help for her drug/murdering habit, but Applejack get's really defensive and says "fuck you I can eat all these apples!" I'M GONNA GET A WICKED BAD TUMMY ACHE?!?!!??! WELL HOW ABOUT YOU PURPLE PONIES GET THE HELL OUT MAH TOWN! So, at the previously mentioned ceremony, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy talked about how Applejack was gonna help them with shit they could do themselves. Applejack arrives, still high on whatever she's smoking/injecting/snorting, and guess what happens? Tries to help Rainbow Dash with her dumb tricks - Fucks up Tries to help Pinkie Pie bake marijuana muffins - Fucks up Tries to help Fluttershy commit bestiality - Fucks up All 'cause she's addicted to drugs. Twilight confronts her after each of these encounters, but stubborn Applebitch says that drugs expand your mind and that she should kill herself. At least she managed to get Spike relatively high with her half-assed marijuana muffins. All the cool kids are doing it, Twilight! Unfortunately, the animals that Applejack was helping Fluttershy with got loose and caused another stampede, so Twilight said "SON OF AN ASSHOLE" and went to tell that orange piss stain off once and for all! When she arrives, Applejack is so high that she believes she bucked all the apple trees, but Big Mac shows her that there are still more to do. Unfortunately, Applejack overdosed and passed out, but when she awoke, Twilight and Big Mac insisted that she go to rehab while they finish bucking the orchard. KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS! So, while Applejack is in rehab, Twilight and the Fab Four finish harvesting the apples and Twilight learns that drugs suck shit. ... ... ... Or maybe the lesson was about how friendship is a game of give and take, and that you should receive help as much as you give it. ... ... ... Nope, I'm pretty sure the moral was "drugs are fucked up." And so concludes "Applebuck Season!" I think this is probably the most consistently well-executed episode of the season up to this point. It is an expansion on Applejack's stubborn personality and a good way of developing the character in a well-paced and realistic manner. She wants to do everything by herself at the cost of her health and her other responsibilities. As with this incredible plot and execution, I have no complaints with the story! It's the first near-perfect episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I will be giving it a 9/10, however, mostly because this isn't really one of my go-to MLP stories. I mean, it's amazing, but unlike the previous three episodes where there was some writing issue but at least remained enjoyable, this episode is writing perfection but isn't quite as much fun to sit through. That's a pretty rare occurrence for me, but I don't think a 9/10 is anything to be ashamed of. Good job with this episode, Amy Keating Rogers. You know, aside from the atrocity of "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" and some other mediocre episodes in season one & four, I notice that Amy Keating Rogers has written some of the best MLP episodes. Perhaps, so long as she stays on board, this show won't flush itself completely down the toi- ... Fuck.
  3. Well, a review on a Season 1 episode during Season 5. Yeah, this review made me realize how far behind I am. Regardless, today we're going to look at the first Applejack centric episode of the show; Applebuck Season. Feel free to leave a comment down below. I'd love to talk about this episode with you!
  4. Welcome to the "Pick a Flaw" thread for the first Applejack-centered episode. In it, Applejack's main flaw in her character, her stubbornness, is introduced and played a gigantic role throughout, from the party to the hilarious shenanigans to finally admitting to wanting help at the very end. It's also a bit controversial because her main flaw was really explored to the depth it hasn't covered since, leaving some bronies (including other Applejack bronies) to wonder if they're at a standstill with her. Like the others, pick the flaw that stands out to you or find to be the one that can determine the overall enjoyment or quality of the episode. My choice is going to the length of Applejack's stubborness. It's one thing to exploit it, but another to exploit it simply to plod the plot. The conflict lasted way too long, and several of the scenes were written more for the humor aspect. Although the scenes with Appljack hitting the seesaw and the baked bads are extremely funny, some like celebrating Applejack's deed to save Ponyville and then the overdramatic rabbit stampede are way too corny and disrupted the overall flow. In addition, Applejack was too stubborn for far too long, turning the episode into one where it's difficult not to watch the clock and wonder when it'll end. Overall, it's a decent episode, but it could've served its time much better.

  5. I told you these would be irregularly released. Time to review more ponies. I could make a Brady Bunch joke, but I'm not a terrible person, so no. "The Ticket Master" Written by Amy Keating Rogers & Lauren Faust Another episode that ends up just being decent. It's a bit better than the pilot, and it's still good fun, but there's almost nothing remarkable about it. Almost. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=2qeN3NgPRWo Dat voice acting. So yeah, it's another one of those episodes where a character has the key to somebody's happiness, but UH OH, all his/her friends want a piece of the action and lessons about whatever and bleh. The greatest strength of this episode is the fact that it's these characters who are going through the motions of this troped-up story. Not exactly the perfected humor we'd see in some later episodes, and the VA's still haven't achieved 100% synchronization (except Tabitha St. Germain, she is a national treasure), but we're seeing the beginning of some slightly more nuanced writing for the characters. For example, the humor surrounding Rarity's writing is less based on her prissiness and the fact that she makes dresses and more on the fact that she takes all her emotions to eleven. It's really basic at this stage, but we're getting there. Press Y to synchronize. HAHA, see what I did there?! It's funny because Assassin's Creed exists. Gawd, I'm so freaking hilarious! I should work for EQD. But we're only three episodes in, so the show is still in its infinitely awkward stage regarding the animation. Everything's kept as simplistic as possible (still an abundance of shots where we see the ponies only from the side), and there are some pretty noticeable gaffes with lip synching at times. That said, there are some pretty great expressive moments with the simplest facial expression or body language here and there. You are tearing me apart, Jean Dujardin pony! Also, DAT CLOUD. Overall, predictable, but harmless enough and ultimately fun. This episode still sits in the category of "this is actually pretty good for a show made for little girls", much like the pilot. Hopefully, we get out of this stage of the show soon; I need something meaty to tear into. Mmmmmm, meat... 7/10 "DUUUUUUUUUUDE, I'm trippin' out about ponies and stuff, dude!" "I dunno, but do you ever just wonder what, like, the color's mean...?" ================================================================================ There's probably an image that better represents this episode than this, but there is no image that better represents humanity. "Applebuck Season" Written by Amy Keating Rogers I like this one. The show's still trying to find its feet, but this episode works as a pretty good beta for great episodes in the future. If this episode provides anything at all, though, its a case for AJ being Best Pony. Hell, the characters within the show hold a rally just to congratulate AJ for being incredible. "Totally worth the funds we took from the sanitation department! Just make sure you don't create any trash between now and next month." AJ great is that her most persistent character flaw, her stubbornness and refusal to own up to the fact that her way of doing things may be faulty, is one everyone can relate to on some level. While the episode certainly plays it up for laughs, learning to accept that one has made an error in judgement is a mature lesson to teach to pretty much everybody. AJ's denying of the truth is also a pretty clever form of the "Element flaw" (the specific character trait that appears to be the opposite of the Element the pony in question is suppose to represent): the Element of Honesty is not honest with herself. [/deepness] It's a well-paced little tale with some legititmatley funny moments sprinkled throughout. The overly dramatic stampede, AJ's various levels of mental decay, that moment when Dash just sorta collapses on Twilight's balcony, and the "baked bads": it's all good. It's straightforward and simple by design and offers a solid 22 minutes of entertainment that at the very least ends up being harmless. It's not an episode that I go out of my way to watch, but I'm always glad I watched it. 8/10 "John Doe has struck again! Not sure which Deadly Sin this is suppose to represent, though. I think he was just kind of drunk this time." Random thoughts Man, were those fashion saddles weird. Rarity finally realizes that those fashion critics were not laughing with her. Look, Mrs. Faust, I get it. They're horses. Horses wear saddles. That isn't too much of a stretch in logic. But these just didn't work, man. Ignoring the question as to why saddles would have even been invented in a society made up of equines, there's just no way you can make a saddle work as fashion. The only thing they accomplish is looking bizarrely kinky. Somehow kinkier than just being buck naked. Kudos to that, I guess. I'm not sure whether the kinkiness of the saddles was meant to appeal to the key demographic of little girls who probably like dresses that consist of more than leather straps and a harness. But I guess it's not your fault that most people are not as open minded to the wonderful and wacky world of sexy ponies as you were. We all can't be Champion RD92, unfortunately. ... If you were expecting some Digibrony explorations of the show's themes or deeper meaning, than you're going to be disappointed with this review series. The only audience that appears to be in luck are those hoping to explore the sexual undertones of the saddles.
