  1. After watching S8 E13 "The Mean 6" and noticing Chrysalis excluding Starlight from her little science experiment, It made me think about something interesting... What would a Discorded Starlight be like? I've always thought Starlight was a very interesting character to add to MLP. Ever since the Cutie Map episodes I thought it was funny that a character like her would even be in a show like MLP. She's definitely got a mix of issues going on. To me, she seems to be a sociopath to a degree with a bit of narcissism also. She sometimes does questionable things to accomplish/get something she wants without thinking through how it will affect others. Sociopaths can have a conscience but it usually is weaker than a normal person. They tend to put themselves and/or their needs above others. The narcissism seems to be a big part of her problems. What she says when she is exposed in The Cutie Map says a lot about this. It highlights her inflated view of her magic abilities and how she thinks lesser of the "townspeople." Discorded Starlight would be probably be like Fluttershy,in a way, but less shy. She would be anxious and always overly concerned with how whatever she does would affect others or how it would make others feel. I also think she would be somewhat like an overprotective parent in a way, being worried to the point of being annoying. So what do you guys think? EDIT: I wasn't thinking a lot in my original response. I was thinking more along the lines of "Old Starlight" from the village. She currently has made big changes, but still occasionally lapses again with her plans, like thinking mind control is a good idea, or leading dangerous creatures back to where they were led away from. Seeing how she is currently, she would probably seem depressed, lethargic, and disinterested if discorded now.
  2. Greetings, Ponies of the MLP Forums! This is a topic in which, you are allowed to ask questions to me and any of my five amazing friends. Sup? Hello, Darlings. Howdy! Hiya! Um...Hello? "The Great and Powerful" Trixie has decided to grace this thread with her presence as well. Before we begin, I would like to thank our friends @Totally Lyra & Lyra Heartstrings for giving us this idea. Rules: Please keep your questions clean/No cussing. No shipping questions. No Pre-Release Episode Spoilers. Questions should only be directed at the ponies in the thread title. No repetitive questions please. No one word responses to my answers please.
  3. I think she's a great pony, and glad that she decided it was better to make friends with ponies rather than harm them.
  4. WELCOME TO THE STARLIGHT GLIMMER FANCLUB! She was equal and wanted to share True Friendship with everypony. And then she was reformed, and is the one and only student of the Princess of Friendship. She has amazing magical abilities that match those of the Princesses themselves. She is the first true friend of the Great and Powerful Trixie. It's the one and only Starlight Glimmer! Club Rules: - No hate on this or any other character. - No spam. - Don't claim that you're the biggest fan. - No overly inappropriate material. - Please focus on this character only: all posts must include her as the main topic. - Forum global rules still apply!
  5. Note: Expanded my thoughts from here and here. Being Starlight's first episode of Season 9 and from a prior synopsis, one could guess a low-stakes episode, magic-oriented, or possible repeat of a Every Little Thing She Does. That couldn’t be any further from the truth. Magic's involved, but it wasn't central to the story. With her friends off for Spring Break, she's running the school now until they return, and she needs something to organize her time in school while also not being in office. Casting an alert curse on a bracelet was convenient and made sense: Once they need her help, she'll be right there. Unfortunately, she didn't foresee what was to come. Her schedule just before Spring Break became so hectic that she not only got many ponies lined up, but Silverstream came over several times for very small problems related to an unnamed project. And to make matters worse, Starlight was unable to help Trixie gather the right objects for Maud and Mud’s spring solstice party the next morning (with Sunburst invited, too) and Trixie had to prepare it all by herself. The episode spends a good amount of time gradually building tension, starting with the innocent(ly funny expressions by Trixie) and ending with the stressful. Some examples include: Trixie casually drinking tea and eating sandwiches as Starlight juggles between her office and the picnic. Starlight helping her students while trying (and failing ) to hide her nerves. As Trixie reminds her of the errands, Starlight stays conspicuously silent as she looks around and taps her hooves. As Ocellus deals with her identity crisis, Starlight tries to solve it while rushing through. Starlight leaving the store once her bracelet buzzes, accidentally dropping the streamers she plans to buy. After Starlight realizes she missed out on everything and failed to keep her promises, she crouched and smacked her muzzle on the ground. Suddenly, her bracelet rang again. During this first third of the story, a lot of great faces were animated to accentuate the stress building up amongst themselves and each other, like their eyes increasing size, Trixie's sneers, Smolder's smirk, and Starlight's anguish. The dialogue was also top-notch, adding to both the humor and drama. Additionally, despite being Starlight-centric, Haber doesn't write Trixie in the wrong for expecting her to keep her promise, too. Yes, Starlight was justified to not keep 'em, even though she tried her hardest to keep up. Being in charge of the school for now, she's responsible for their safety and guidance if need be. To her, rejecting any help could mean missing out on something truly important to solve and letting Twilight et al down. Nevertheless, Haber doesn't let Trxie's feelings go or feel marginalized, spending good time airing her frustrations and then confronting her after taking care of the party arrangements. So when Silverstream asked for help one more time, the moment when Starlight turned her away and took off her bracelet until the Break ends made sense and didn't feel rushed through. So when Terramar alerted her that Silverstream vanished and then called her out for turning her away (Thanks, Trixie ), could you blame her feeling terrible for the whole thing? By closing the school early, she believed she could've solved an actual problem rather than any nerve-wracking nitpick from earlier. After realizing that she was in the Everfree Forest to likely research cockatrices, the tension climbed hundredfold and added further uncertainty for Starlight. Early in the open, Starlight explained how becoming a counselor allowed her to use her "checkered past" to get to others' shoes and aid them below the surface. The guilt she felt from seasons ago disappeared. But that guilt returned and only increased as the episode and danger progressed. Even after they all realized SS was safe and sound, that guilt never went away. The communication between the rest of her friends also felt very complete with plenty of humor. Some of the best moments were as follows: The anime-like blood vessels ready to burst and SG's shock really sell the joke and immediately show how even he gets on her nerves. Trixie standing up for Starlight to Terramar and eventually accepting partial blame for her disappearance. After Terramar criticized Starlight's party for not being "perfect," everyone, including Maud, glared crossly at him, shutting him up. In acts of desperation, Starlight looked in even the most unconventional places, such as inside Pinkie's party cannon and on a crowded bookshelf. Moments like these show both the panic creeping from within and the guilt that she already possesses. This little exchange: In the final two acts alone, there was plenty of flirting between them in comparison to Maud Couple from last year. Mud's little smile after Maud's reply feels genuine and shows appreciation for each other. The lesson has some similarities with Zeppelin, but they’re not the same. In Zeppelin, it’s about how it’s not selfish to have time with yourself. Here, it’s about not getting bogged down with a very stressful job to spend quality time with others. It’s a really good lesson. There are two problems. When Starlight and the others made it inside the open ruins of the sisters’ castle, they assumed the cockatrices won’t fly in and only surround. One big problem. Cockatrices can fly high, and they got too close to a flock of migrating ones by watching them from a cliff above. What if the provoked cockatrices decide to fly over the walls or through the old windows? They were just as vulnerable inside the ruins as out, yet the episode lowers the stakes a bit here and assumes they’re safe until they walk out. It was really dumb of everyone to gather and breathe there. At the very end, Silverstream admits to Starlight that her advice didn't amount to anything in the long run. First off, the joke wasn't funny. Secondly, it all but made Starlight's stress over "not doing her job" pointless and marginalizes the moral, as SS's visits didn't factor at all into the conclusion of her Spring Break project. Had Trixie not interrupt, Starlight would've completely lost her temper and given her the riot act. That said, it’s really good, and given the fact that Starlight’s takeover of the school may be inevitable, she really needed this episode. Good work, Haber!
  6. https://mlpforums.com/calendar/event/328-%7B%3F%7D/?module=events Title: Title: The Cutie Map (Part 1) Air Date: April 4th, 2015 Synopsis: The Mane 6 arrive in a village to solve a friendship problem and find out that everyone in the village has given up their Cutie Marks. Title: The Cutie Map (Part 2) Air Date: April 4th, 2015 Synopsis: The Mane 6 have their Cutie Marks taken and must find a way to get them back from the pony who took them.

  7. NOTE: I've seen a lot of posts from users on both sides with a vengeful attitude towards either fans or detractors both on this site (at least two of which I reported) and off. Wishing ill will at people or a group of people, calling someone or a group of fans "butthurt" (an ad hominem with homophobic and misogynistic implications), bashing fans, and verbal abuse to fan factions are vile and not welcome in this thread. For the sake of keeping discussion cool and civil, save this immaturity in your trash box and don't post it. On another note, even though this episode won't air in the U.S. until June 10, Treehouse TV in Canada will air it this Saturday sometime between 11 and 11:30am. Be prepared for spoilers! Title: A Royal Problem Air Date (Canada/Treehouse TV): May 20, 2017 Air Date (U.S./Discovery Family): June 10, 2017 Writer: Joanna Lewis & Kristine Songco (a.k.a., The Sister Writers) Summary: "Starlight Glimmer is sent to solve a friendship problem between Princess Celestia and Princess Luna; when it's clear that the problem is that the royal sisters don't appreciate one another, Starlight impulsively switches their cutie marks!" This episode will continue the trend from Treehouse TV starting last Sunday with Fluttershy Leans In: Two episodes will air per week, one on Saturday, one on Sunday (and could air the finale early in the summer), while Discovery Family will air one per week. More than likely due to the Movie coming out in October. The airing timing isn't consistent, so if you plan to watch the episode via the stream, arrive early. When someone uploads the episodes on YT and DailyMotion, I'll link them to you here. A poll will be published after it airs.

  8. Random idea I had for a while: Glimmy tied to a bunch of balloons and floating and trying to say hi to Sunburst.
  9. Call it a full-on a ship or a close friendship between two ponies with less than stellar pasts; it's apparent that these two share a connection and do care for one another. As such let us celebrate with a club for these two. <3 All forum rules apply; keep that in mind.
  10. I don’t usually do episode reviews but this episode is so good that I thought I should review this one. Student Counsel by far the best episode of the season we finally got another Starlight solo episode and it’s with none of the mane 6 bonus. Which was great because we haven’t gotten one since season 7. We got to see Trixie, Maud, Sunburst, Mud briar and Terrmar again and they all played a great role and were all in character. We also get to learn a little bit more about Cockatrices and how some can be friendly which was very nice to see. And of course the funny facial Expressions of Starlight and Trixie was highlight of the episode. This episode also has a fantastic lesson and moral. It’s okay to be busy but you need to be able to balance time between your job and friends. Overall a spectacular episode. Score: 1000/1000
  11. NOTE: Copied and pasted my review from here and contains some extra edits. Trixie and Starlight's chant and dance were total cringe. Looking for me to dish another negative? You ain't gonna find it here. (On the) Road to Friendship's story's incredibly simple, its focus driven 100% by Starlight, Trixie, and their incredible chemistry. Just like Spike, Big Mac, and Discord from Break Down, they only became friends two seasons ago, yet thanks to Haber's clever writing, you'd think their friendship goes back to childhood. Until Season 6, Trixie only stood center stage for Boast Busters, Magic Duel, and Rainbow Rocks as a tertiary character. But Haber brought her into becoming a reoccurring character and has become a vehicle for storytelling around Starlight. Their magnificent chemistry is thanks to Haber's incredibly tight dialogue, a continuous improvement of the show started by Shadow Play. With everything they say to and about each other, you buy into it, whether it's their praise, banter, jokes, passive-aggressive insults, and full-blown arguing. Their exchanges were snappy and completely believable; each moment and line flowed so well, even when the vocabulary repeats, with no hitch at all. Thanks to their chemistry, Haber takes advantage of as many comedic opportunities as possible. Virtually all of them land. Some of my favorites include: Starlight teleporting back to the school in a hurry, only to briefly return to say goodbye in between. Starlight throwing a little meta joke about how Twilight and friends would sing a song to commemorate their voyage, only for them both to start a song themselves. Blowing open the inflatable raft causes Starlight to get pinned to the window. During their descent into fighting, Starlight and Trixie share passive-aggressive barbs at each other during the Somnambula magic show. While sleeping in the caravan in Somnambula, Trixie talks and rehearses in her sleep, while Starlight snores noisily, each a callback to previous episodes. Kudos to Haber for using a combined pun of the village's name. The elder pony peaks out of the chest, sees nothing happening, and returns to sleep. Cue credits. But the best comedy comes during We're Friendship-Bound. Aside from being the season's best song up to this point, it's incredibly upbeat with catchy lyrics and just-as-catchy jazzy beat. Like Apples to the Core four seasons ago, its jovial tone reverberates through each scene, which ranged in activity, danger, and atmosphere. I don't recall the last time Pinkie broke the fourth wall, but Trixie and Starlight shattered it everywhere, especially this line(!): But like the rest of the season, Haber progressively tests their friendship. While Starlight's preoccupied at the school, Hoo'Far asks if he can trade his bigger caravan for hers. She says no, because it's her home. Her smaller, cramped wagon comes into play twice, including as they relaxed the first time. Trixie closes the door, causing SG to accidentally drop a smoke bomb. Starlight wasting bits on street food over essentials. Trixie waiting a long time in line for a particular street vendor over shopping at another empty vendor that orders the same thing. After all the hotels are booked, they get really testy with each other. Despite apologizing with each other… …they get really cramped inside her wagon. Starlight can't move, so she moves the smoke bombs, squashing Trixie. They couldn't sleep in the same room! Trixie wrapped a bandana around her muzzle to stop her snoring. Next morning, thy passive-aggressively take the last of each others' food, the haycake by SG, the juice by Trixie. This passive aggression continued into the failed magic show, one of Road to Friendship's funniest scenes. The water boils that night when they traded sleep- and meal-related insults and accusations, culminating with Starlight ejecting Trixie's supplies and: But the boiling foamed the next morning when Starlight traded away her wagon for his behind her back. You think that her impulsiveness would let her think twice about trading it away. Despite her decent alibi of traveling with a roomier wagon, Starlight has two major problems here: Her timing. Neither of them got along and fought the night before. Those feelings pass over here. Starlight traded it while Trixie slept. It doesn't matter if your intentions are good. This is her property, and she decides what to do with it, not SG. It ain't no surprise why Trixie's so upset; her anger's completely justified. Starlight comes off as a major plothole here, why she's primarily written to be in the wrong in Act 3, and becomes the episode's primary apologizer. This is a reversal of No Second Prances, but done way better. In the former, Trixie used Starlight, and she had to make it up to her. Here, Starlight screwed up badly and has to make it up. Some are a little disappointed we see nothing of Saddle Arabia beyond just Hoo'Far (who, BTW, had really excellent and witty dialect), but like Chrysalis in The Mean Six, those who do miss the point. This episode's about experiencing the ups and downs of friendship, having their friendship tested, overcoming it, and becoming closer. In the grand scope, Saddle Arabia isn't necessary, and the story in between more than makes up for it. All in all, it's an excellent episode — one of the best of not just the season, but the show, too.
  12. Playing with the ages of the characters Granny Smith is at the edges of her "prime" when the Bright Mac and Pear Butter are very young, though they can talk (about three years old). Exactly 15 years later, they marry clandestinely and Buttercup joins the Apple family. Assume that they have Big Macintosh immediately. Applejack and Big Mac can be pretty close in age, say three years apart. Apple Bloom is born much later. Big Mac hasn't aged visibly between "Where the Apple Lies" and the first episode. Let's say he's 18 in WTAL and AJ is 15. Assuming Apple Bloom is born very soon after this episode, then she is 15 years younger than AJ, and 18 younger than Mac, and her parents were 36 when they had her. Then they died, I guess. Now assume Apple Bloom is six at the start of the first episode (five year old Sweetie Belle looks a little younger, so six is probably the youngest that would make sense). That puts the meeting of Applejack's parents 39 years in the past. Assuming Granny smith was in her early thirties at that point, now she's 70. Mrs. Cake, if she were the same age as the Apple parents, would be 42 now, but keeping this number low seems necessary. We can let he be two years younger than Pear butter. This number is controlled by basically every number previously mentioned, so they have to be kept low too. As an aside, the Cakes seem to be masterful at raising an infant, so it's possible they had a previous child who has since moved out. This is possible if they had an earlier child at around 20. Mayor Mare can be the same age as the parents. So if everyone were alive at the start of the show, the ages would be: Granny Smith: 70 ( = 6 + 18 + 15 + 31) Mayor Mare: 42 ( = 6 + 18 + 15 + 3) Bright Mac: 42 ( = 6 + 18 + 15 + 3) Pear Butter: 42 ( = 6 + 18 + 15 + 3) Mrs. Cake: 40 ( = 6 + 18 + 15 + 3 - 2) Big Mac: 24 ( = 6 + 18) Applejack: 21 (= 6 + 15) Apple Bloom: 6 Wow, that sounds about right actually. Applejack says she was late in getting her cutie mark, so she can be older than the rest. AJ and Fluttershy: 21 The rest: 20. Spike hatched when Twilight was about six, so he's 14 at the start of the series. I like the idea of Starlight being younger than the Mane 6, since her Father treats her like a child, and she acts out in immature ways. I don't think she had her village for that long, say one year, or else someone would have called the authorities. The season 5 premiere happens a little more than a year after the first episode. Assuming she started the village at age 17 (having skipped a grade or something) with other impressionable young adults and ruled it for one year, that would make her 18 on her first appearance, and 17 at the start of the series (off screen). Making Trixie the same age also makes sense. Starlight: 17 Trixie: 17 What do you think?

  15. How can they forgive Starlight Glimmer after all she's done? ? It's insane! She's created several apocalyptic times lines during The Cutie Remark, one of which seems to be a lifeless ash wasteland. All that awful things over losing a single friend? Does Starlight Glimmer deserve forgiveness? Should she be executed or exiled? All she got was a slap on the wrist for doing all that. How it would play out in a more realistic setting. Starlight Glimmer: I'm sorry. Can you forgive me for all I've done? Princess Twilight Sparkle: Nope. What you did was unforgivable. If you don't go into exile, I'm putting you under a guillotine. The End (cue end credits music)
  16. Speculation on What Season 9 (The Last Season?) of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Will Be Like: Speculations based on leaked information! Spoilers ahead. Anyway, those are just my speculations on what could happen/occur come Season 9 (should it be the last season of FIM). But what do you think, do you agree with my speculations? What are yours? Let me and everyone else know. 😊 God Bless and Take Care. Speculation on What Season 9.docx
  17. In other words, could certain questions finally get answed , and certain theroies be put to rest. Well, with any kind of closuer on a franchise, the finale always seems to (at most times) open the doors to allow the writers to get a lot of stuff out of their system for themselves and for at most, the fans. But will the final season of MLP : FIM do that as well? Here I talk about what could be finally addressed, if that is the case. Now one of the first things that they (the writers) could finally address, is the whole Spike x Rarity situation. What I mean is, that if the writers choose to do so (IMO I believe they will), this will finally be addressed, and the outcome will be one that is a positive one, and yet be one that not a lot of the brony/pegasister community will agree on. And what the outcome will be, Spike and Rarity together. You may ask "How?" Well, it's quite simple, if you look at the fact, that they've been teasing this since Eps. 1, and throughout the show's run, they've had several episodes centered around Spike, that have also involved Rarity in some major/minor capacity, and with it being the final season of the show, like I mentioned at the beginning at the start, it opens the door for this to take place. And the reason being is, unless the series finale somehow ties into G5 and G5 becomes a soft Retcon/Reboot of FIM, then (IMO) this Spike x Rarity Deal will finally become a reality. 2. A Sugar Belle and Big Mac wedding will most likely happen. The reason being is the fact that this could be looked at as a 3 chapter deal, with the first happening in S7 , and So it only makes sense to tie this trifecta up with a 3rd and final chapter happening in the final season, which would culminate with a wedding between Sugar and BIg. Heck, for emotional sake, have the spirts of AJ, AppleBloom and Big Mac's parents appear to show their love and support, and thus have the kids and Sugar Belle seem as well. 3. Finally Addressing Celestria and Luna's orgins. Yes, before the show comes to a close, this has to be addressed, especially after giving them some moments to shine, first in the Premiere of S6 and most recently, not once but twice in S7, and This is something that finally needs to be addressed and I believe (IMO) that the writing staff of FIM will finally do so in the final season. Espiecally with the fact, that if you go back to the S6 Premiere, they both said, "That the birth of an Alicorn, is something Equestria has never seen", and that it was "Even beyond their understanding." Yeah, when they both said those things, that was enough of red flag, and more of a legit reasoning to wanna know about their orgins. 4. Starlight Glimmer becoming an Alicorn? Yes, indeed, this is most likely the direction they are heading, and if S9 is it for the show, definitely expect the writing staff to go this route. And, why?, you may ask. Because it seems that's what they building towards with her. (at least in my IMO), and would make sense that they writing staff make this a reality. 5. Sunset Shimmer Returns! , and the recent "Mirror Magic" EQG special, she has never returned to Equestria on the "Friendship is Magic" side of things. So with the final season, I truly believe and hope, (like many do) that this will be the season that it finally happens. And all honesty, I feel the writing staff knows that as well and will make it happen. 6. I believe that a G1 character has to be brought in, with a G4/FIM update, and that character should Majesty. And if you want a reason why, well if you watch MLP-Silver Quill's and ILOVEKPALOT's Video they did on Villains in MLP, than you pretty much get your answer there, as to why she should be brought in. Basically make her a character, that believes she's doing the right thing, but in fact is not. Or as Silver Quill put it, make her a rogue element that believes that all villainy, even those that have been redeemed, should be disposed of. Than the writers can build towards something between her and Twilight, and at same time, they could acknowledge a history between Celestria, Luna and Majesty as well, and that could really build the tension between her and Twilight. But that's what I (IMO) feel the writers will/would do in the final season, should it be more freelanced. What are your thoughts? God Bless!

  23. Recently I watched Ant-man and the Wasp, and I realized one big thing about me when it comes to judging characters. In Disney's Coco, the protagonist is the worst character I have ever seen in any animated motion picture. The character must face the consequences of it's own actions. And this aspect is deeply connected to the story itself, as if all characters are deeply connected to it's own story. Of course there are lots of things to consider when judging a character, but I would focus on this aspect. When it comes to the characters of MLP, I don't like Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. Not just because they were cruel and mean to the CMCs, but because they were characters that hardly suffer their consequences. The only time I saw it happen was when Diamond Tiara was forced to wear a rabbit suit and do a thing that she made fun of early in Family Appreciation Day (S02E12). If shallow dumb mean bully characters built only for the sake of being mean bullies could face their consequences and get what they deserve every time, they could be characters that we love to hate and we care about, look forward to see them again. But most of the time, they didn't. Diamond and Silver were being totally harsh, and they went away with it. The problems they created was left for others (CMCs) to solve. It helps making us hate certain characters and root for other characters, but it isn't satisfying that much. But it doesn't mean that all dumb bully villains are bad characters. After all, we love villains like Biff in Back to the Future or Harry and Marv from Home Alone. Trixie faced the consequences of her actions. So even she is still pretty much the same old cocky mare, we love her. (and of course she actually changed) Think of how much people hate Pinkie Pie for her often causing problems but not facing the consequences. Good that she has good episodes that shows she's not totally an inconsiderate crazy pony. Rarity faced her consequences. She got dirt on her dress, felt guilty for her actions, fell from Cloudsdale. Guilda, Nightmare Moon, Zephyr Breeze, Chrysalis, Discord, all faced their consequences. Do you know who didn't faced it's own consequence? Starlight Glimmer. She didn't got what she deserve, didn't fixed her pathological behavior of overreacting, she got what she always wanted, she got forgiven, she's friends with the princess and everybody loves her. I couldn't clearly explain some of the parts why I disliked her in the first place, but I think I am more clear about why. Flim Flam brothers seems like they face their consequences every time because they always get caught, but the truth is quite the opposite. The fact that they come up with another scam every time with no remorse and no damage taken, and most ponies except for the mane six gets fooled every time proves this. If they have had faced their consequences in the first place, Flim Flam brothers couldn't show up the second time as crooks. The only time they suffered the consequence was in Best Gift Ever. (but some might say this wasn't a scam, ponies were just stupid to buy it) Sludge got away from what he did without any harm to himself, but he got revealed and won't be welcomed anymore. And that's why I don't want him to return. It won't work and it would be stupid. Cozy Glow and Chancellor Neighsay are particular cases because one goes to prison in hell and the other gets locked up by a pony and gets rescued by non-pony creatures. You could say they get what they deserve. But in this case, there are way more bigger flaws about them. Maybe I will talk about it later. I like the moment when the villain steps on his own banana peeling and flips upside down. Or in a brutal final fight scene where the bad guy's own weapon backfires on him like Ben-Hur. Bruce Lee kicking a guy to a spear. I like to see characters get what they deserve for the sake of a good satisfying story and likable good/bad characters. That's why the moment Spike gets a cup of ice cream from Twilight in P.P.O.V. (S06E22) is so memorable and satisfying to me. And if the story is more of a character driven story, this becomes more important. Choices that characters make are important. If there is no consequences to an action, the choices becomes irrelevant, the character becomes irrelevant, the story becomes irrelevant. I'm curious about what you think about consequences in MLP, or stories in general.
  24. So today at work, I had another brainstorm of an idea involving an Alternative MLP Universe. The style is similar to Friendship is Magic, as well as the voice cast. But many of the origin stories are a bit different, not to mention some of the layouts. Here's how it goes. In this alternative world, Princess Twilight Sparkle once had a student of her own named Majesty, a young filly unicorn who once had an optimistic future. But one day, something went wrong and Majesty cut ties with her former teacher. This left Twilight Sparkle devastated by her failure. Months later, Twilight and her friends Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack and Fluttershy were able to defeat Starlight Glimmer, a mare with a troubled past. Twilight, seeing Majesty withing Starlight, took her in as her student in hopes of giving her a second chance. Though Twilight and her superiors Princess Celestia and Princess Luna were willing to give her a chance to prove she's changed, there are some ponies who won't forgive her for what she did, calling her an impostor, a Twilight Wannabe, and a Mary Sue. This has left Starlight depressed, but there are some ponies that trust her in second chances. Especially those who live in Ponyville. Since then, Starlight has considered Ponyville her new home. And she has a number of friends to help her out(Besides the Mane 6 and Spike): Trixie, BIg Macintosh, Sugar Belle, Double Diamond, Mr and Mrs Cake, Baby Lickety Split, and Derpy Hooves AKA Muffins. One day, Twilight's former student Majesty appeared out of nowhere, armed with a tiara called The Wrath of the Windigos. With it, she channels her own rage and hate into a powerful magical weapon, using it to devastate the Equestrian Kingdom. Twilight wants to stop her former pupil, but Celestia insists on having her new pupil Starlight Glimmer stop Majesty. Twilight was reluctant because she didn't want her new pupil to fall to evil again, or for her to succumb to Majesty. But in the end, she puts her trust in Celestia and allows Starlight to embark on this quest to stop Majesty. Starlight's companions are Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy and Sunset Shimmer. Sunset serves as a big sister towards Starlight, helping her out and guiding her to her right path. Since Starlight's reform, Sunset has been looking after her, and for a good reason. Like Starlight, Sunset had a troubled past of her own. She and her younger brother Sunburst grew up as street rats in Equestria, trying to forge to survive. They were often mistreated by other Ponies as if they were unwelcomed guest. It took Celestia's own intervention to save both and take them in as her own students. As Starlight and the others embark on their quest to stop Majesty, a young colt who is considered a fan of Twilight Sparkle wants to know why Majesty went evil. A group of other Twilight fans don't seem to care, as they consider Majesty a traitor to Equestria, especially their leader. Curious, this young colt embarks on his own investigation in Canterlot on what happened that day. She was able to interview Twilight Sparkle and Princess Celestia on why Majesty went rogue. Twilight's own assistant, Spike the Dragon, serves as a partner for the young colt in the investigation. His investigation turns up to the family of Majesty. The young colt and Spike were able to talk with Majesty's mother and father. Majesty sounded like the perfect filly growing up in Canterlot. So why did she go rogue? Turns out, some ponies were sending her nasty letters, calling her "Imposter," "Fake," "Twilight Wannabe," and even "Loser." And it wasn't just the words. The parents witnessed their own daughter being humiliated when someone purposefully dumped a bucket of rotten vegetables on Majesty long ago as a mean-spirited prank, causing her to flip out. She was even taunted and humiliated by what sounds like the same ponies from the Twilight Sparkle Fan Club. This made the Young Colt began to rethink his stance in that club. At Midnight Castle, Starlight, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy and Sunset were able to do battle with Majesty. Despite her age, Majesty was able to overpower all seven ponies with the Wrath of the Windigos Tiara. As the seven are severly crippled from Majesty's resistance, the young filly plans on using the fully power of the tiara to devastate Canterlot City as revenge for the humiliation she went through many years ago. Starlight and Sunset began to see a similarity between themselves and Majesty, and tried to reason with her, even bringing in their own past. But Majesty was not listening. She would stop at nothing to unleash all of her hatred towards Canterlot, and destroy the entire city. It was there that the sacred powers of harmony activated within all seven heroines. Early ago, they were unable to use the powers of Harmony to bring down Majesty. But Sunset's empathy and the spark in Starlight's heart were enough to power all seven ponies. They use the Rainbow of Light to defeat Majesty and shatter her crown. Even in defeat, Majesty was as defiant as ever, refusing to even consider a reform, only to accept her arrest by the Seven ponies. Starlight and Sunset were only saddened by Majesty's own defiant stance. After a short quest, Starlight, Sunset, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack and Fluttershy return to Canterlot with Majesty in tow. Majesty was put into a dungeon cell where she would await her own trial. However, Princess Celestia portaled into the cell, wanting to know what really happened with Majesty. She was willing to give Twilight's former student a second chance like how Twilight gave Starlight a second chance. But Majesty refused to budge, even wondering why she would be given than when she's locked up. Turns out, Celestia left the door unlocked, stating that Majesty could escape anytime she wanted, and start the whole cycle over if she desired. But Majesty didn't even want to do so. Without power, Majesty feels useless. But when Celestia brought up some parts of Majesty's past that caused her so much grief, the young filly broke down crying, admitting that all that heckling, all that taunting and tormenting by a group of trouble makers was what caused her to abandon her studies in friendship. Celestia now had an idea, and it involved Starlight's own ceremony. That night, Starlight attended a ceremony with her friends, celebrating their victory over Majesty. But as Starlight accepted the award from Princess Luna and Twilight, some former naysayers started seeing Starlight in a new light, at least giving Starlight some hope. Then, without a second thought, a group of hecklers dumped a bucket of rotten vegetables on Starlight all just to humiliate her, and started to call her the same names that they called Majesty. It was never about Starlight's past. It was because Starlight was no Twilight Sparkle. Devastated, Starlight ran off crying. That alone angered Twilight, who called out those hecklers for being rude and insulting, even going as far as to blame them for Majesty's misfortunes. In fact, she now knows that the group of Twilight fans were responsible not just for heckling Starlight, but also to Majesty as well. When those same fans refuse to accept Starlight and even Majesty as students of Twilight, the Princess of Friendship throws down her crown and quits her status as Princess. Princess Luna even scolds those very hecklers with some parts of the crowd becoming restless. The young colt who witnessed everything called out his own fan club for their selfishness. The leader refused to accept any blame, stating that it was about keeping Twilight Sparkle pure. But some members of the fan club began to see the errors of their own ways, especially after the leader dumps rotten produce on the young colt's head for his own amusement. The young colt departs from the leader of the group, throwing away his Twilight Sparkle merchandise in shame. Soon after, some fan club members also do the same, leaving the leader all alone. That night, Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, APplejack, Fluttershy and Spike all went to comfort Starlight Glimmer after the humiliation she went through. Not long after, Celestia, Luna and Majesty joined Starlight as well. Majesty began to see the error of her ways and took pity on Starlight. Starlight was able to cheer up and allowed Majesty to snuggle up to her. Then the young colt arrives, ashamed at what his fan club did to Majesty and Starlight. He even confesses that he actually had a crush on Majesty back then. Some fan club members came to confess what they did and surrender, willing to pay the price for what they did. But not the leader, who was angry over being ousted by the other fan club members. As punishment, the fan club members have to attend community service to make up for what they did. Majesty, Starlight and the young colt volunteered to help out. For Majesty, she chose to do community service to make up for what she did as a villain. Twilight and Celestia are only glad that Majesty was able to return and mend their ways, though Starlight has volunteered to be Majesty's newest teacher. As for the former leader of the fan club, he has to spend an entire year cleaning up Canterlot City as punishment for his crimes. Starlight has become closer to the ponies of Equestria thanks to her second chance, and for helping save Majesty from herself. For Twilight, she couldn't have been more proud of her pupils. And for Celestia and Luna, they couldn't have been more proud of Twilight Sparkle.
