I started re-watching the series from the beginning...again, and got to MMC. While I didn't care for that episode, or the alicornization of purplesmart, I'm gonna be honest...the feels during that scene with Sunbutt's ballad and Twi's ascension still pull at my heartstrings. I'm proud Twi has gotten that far, and that causes feels, but so does the fact that we'll never see unicorn PurpleSmart again. I liked her design without the wings and swan neck syndrome. Bittersweet feels. Are the feels of MMC still fresh with you guys? What causes the feels? Like or hate that we've seen Twi longer as an alicorn than a unicorn?
I bet if they played MLP or just had the actresses record messages and played them in hospitals and therapists offices.. depression, suicide and rage could be decreased by at the very least 45%. For those of you that have started to get too know me, you already know my life has been full of tragic events, chronic depression and mood swings ( as was illustrated today) I am on medication for my mental problems and not only 30 minutes ago.. I was about too commit suicide.. I know those friends I have made may not want too hear that, but it is true.. I had my knife out and ready too slit myself.. but a voice pulled me out of the fires of despair and sadness.. actually .. it was 6 voices . I have NEVER snapped out of a deep depression like that EVER! But those voices.. the music and artwork, the vibrant colors and the overall " Hopeful Vibes " that it sends out, I felt warmth fill me, I slowly began too cry and as I fell too my knees, dropped the knife and basked in the love I felt, the warmth of Equestria had saved me... that is powerful right there.. I think the show should be shown too all those that suffer from mental illnesses such as depression, bi-polar, chronic depression, and other severe ones. It is my theory that the voices of the actors and actresses hit a certain pitch, tone and performance that might release Dopamine and serotonin in the brain ( the chemicals that cause euphoria and happiness, along with the upbeat soundtrack, which the notes C, G and D are known to release the same chemicals in the brain, they call them " Happy Notes " as minor notes have the opposite effect. So if my theory is correct, enough exposure too this show could in fact cause a reversal in the brain's chemistry, possibly.. with enough time might just cure those like me. Something too think about
You know, the episode “Filli Vanilli” is actually quite similar to the Rocko’s Modern Life episode “The Lounge Singer”: http://nick.mtvnimages.com/teennick-assets/specials/90s-all-that/flipbook/rockos-modern-life/rockos-modern-life-moments-flipbook/the-lounge-singer-203.jpg?height=385&width=510&matte=false&format=jpeg&quality=0.75 You probably remember that episode where Rocko discovers that Filburt also has a great singing talent, but like Fluttershy has stage fright. At first, he cures his stage fright using “Geckonetics” motivational audio tapes that enable him to “drain” his stage fright out into a pool of water (“Who spilled the stage fright?”). When the tapes are compromised however, Buddy gecko himself recommends Filburt picture the audience naked (a trick for curing stage fright), but Filburt (who was unable to do it before) has the convenience of the entire audience (of pigs) being naked for him. With Ponies however, Fluttershy couldn’t imagine them naked as, well…, they’re already naked… all the time. So imagine those “Geckonetics” motivational audio tapes working on Fluttershy, and imagine her “draining” her stage fright out into a pool of water like Filburt did. Can you think of any other ways Fluttershy and other Ponies could cure their stage fright (perhaps imagining the audience in very embarrassing clothing)?
