You know... Time flies by. We learn new things, experience new situations, know new people, but at the same time, we forget about the past, we tend to overlap the old with the new, and we lose people around us that once cared, or to which we cared about. And that's okay. That means you're acting in your life. You make decisions everyday, even if they contradict what you stand for in the past. Nothing remains, and never should. What you are now, is the most complete version of yourself that ever existed. You should be proud. You exist. You're a human living in the most advanced world that ever existed, too. And because of that, we should learn by now that society changes constantly because people change. We discover something new on the realms of science, or a new talent hits the stage like never before. Nobody exists without the rest. And that's what brings us here today: Larson isn't writing for the show since season 5, and Polsky isn't involved on season 7. The last remaining "veteran" is Meghan McCarthy, and that mere fact seems to have divided that part of the fandom most involved on knowing who wrote what. Y'know, all of us that spend our free time on forums and news blogs, as we should. They have given us great episodes, and so many topics of controversy through the seasons. They were fun, they were interesting, and kept that inner light inside the fandom so bright that the memes were all over the internet, even until now. Some took them humorous, and others personal. Good writers tend to take risks because of their hyperactive imagination. Their talents and their creations are just consequences of it. sometimes it goes right, others not that well as we could expect. A person can't stand out without making noise, and a creator will drown it they don't emerge and give it it's all. In moments like this, is when things like Ren and Stimpy, the Powerpuff girls, Avatar, and the recent Steven Universe goes to light. But even with the alarms and the outrages and worries that it generates, we should reconsider that our world isn't ending by any means. Media changes, entertainment will not be the same tomorrow. But that moment isn't today. Today we have a chance to move on, let go, and see what the new faces have to offer. I see so much disgust about Starlight, for taking an example and jumping right into MLP. She seemed so powerful, so clever, that even the Mane 6 couldn't outsmart her, that alone without taking in consideration her immense magic talent. Half of the fandom hates her, and I don't share that opinion. I understand that she could be "better" than any of the main characters until then, but I don't consider a physical characteristic enough reason to be objectively a better character. Titles and attributes don't make someone more or less likeable. It's their actions and how they develop in a story what defines them. Alicorns would be best pony all the time if it goes down to "talent" or "inner power". In all honestly, I have enjoyed her a LOT. Her episodes are fun to watch, the lessons we learn from her example are good, and her personality and relationship with Trixie makes me enjoy her even more than some of the remain 6 in the last seasons. I still remember what happenned about Twilicorn, and the memories about Flurry Heart are still fresh in the memory. We used to hate the Equestria Girls franchise, and today Sunset Shimmer is one of the most loved characters even surpassing some of the Mane 6. That's so much to say. We simply refuse to the change because it's new, and because is not what existed before. We fear that Starlight will steal the spotlight, but there is no spotlight to steal. She has her episodes, and still have an arc to accomplish. She's also relatable, likeable and interesting. Sounds familiar? It's like you, me, the Mane 6, and many "minor" characters on the series that have yet to have their own centered episodes. With enough exposition, we can learn to love anybody. We have Slice of Life to prove it. It's not that episode what makes us love these characters, it's all wrong; they were nothing but mere gags on the background. The thing with starlight is that we happen to know her better. We can adopt her too. And for many more reasons. I think that we have very, very high standards of the main characters. We like to think that in the end, they will be the bests. Twilight will be the more talented magic student, Rainbow Dash will be forever the fastest, Pinkie Pie the best at party planning, Rarity the best designer, and so on. We have Sunset and Starlight to prove Twilight's talent wrong (what I mean with this, is that Twilight's talent isn't absolute nor unique), Lightning Dust to slow down Rainbow, and Cheese Sandwish to put Pinkie's hooves on the ground. The only thing that can make them win in the end, is their attitudes. That's one thing that Starlight will never own. So don't fear. Everypony has much more to show. Let her tell her story, and then we can move on to the next character arc. I enjoy My Little Pony because the episodes are great, not because they center on one or two characters. That's not the important thing here. Let me ask you, the first season was that great after all? Before bronys existed, all the characters, all the writers, and for so many people, Lauren Faust herself were mere strangers. Then Friendship is Magic happenned to exist. We fell in love for it. And I don't know you, but I personally, still feel that rejoice whenever a new season is announced. Season 1 is my least favourite, but that doesn't mean that the series will end. They didn't. They won't. Unless, of course, everything we know about it vanishes, and only a few bronys remains. We should see first the episodes, and then, judge if they were good, bad, boring, and why. It's too soon to say that the series will end without Larson and Polsky. Don't remain on the Status Quo. It seems that the series ends every time there is a new season, even a new episode. It's laughable. We still have the memories, but we shall not remain in them. We need to move on, and be open minded. If so, then let go. The only thing safe to say is, we shall see. I have high expectations for the next seasons. It depends on the end result and not on the speculations to whether or not it'll be worth the time. To end with a happy note, my favourite Larson meme is still Princess Big Mac. Behold, everypony!
