    Retirement Talks

    Celestia and Luna talk with Starlight Glimmer about retiring from ruling Equestria. Author's Note: This was an idea that came up after watching the Season 9 trailer. Cover Art belongs to 90sigma on DeviantART. Retirement Talks
  2. 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.
  3. LOL, I've finally made something that I thought was worth posting. Well, This is what I thought of I saw that the upcoming MLP episode was called What Lies Beneath. It seemed fitting considering how some of the some of the past episodes of them together have gone. It turned out better than I thought it would too. All I had access to at the moment was a laptop with a touch pad. I haven't seen the episode, so I don't know what it's really about. Here's what the real movie cover looks like.
  4. What would the mane 6, Starlight, and Spike think of the songs by Breaking Benjamin?
  5. Shadow Nightwing

    Starlight, genius, or mad?

    I've always wondered, was Starlight Glimmer a genius who came up with the way to build a utopia in the desert, or was she mad, her anger clouding her better judgement, her past experiences twisting her thoughts? Honestly, I think it was a bit of both, and the idea was brilliant, but the execution was botched by her belief that she was better than everypony. With proper management, her idea had great promise. If course, the magic she possesses is unique, as would be impossible to find elsewhere. But enough about what I think! What do you think?
  6. 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.

    What if Starlight Initially Won?

    What would happen if Starlight won while in equality village?
  8. Should Sunset have been Twilight's student instead of Starlight? It's a simple debate, should she have been and why? Let me argue for Sunset, see Sunset isn't actually that bad for a character, she made a mistake and it took her actual time to get others to trust her again not just the human mane 6 but twilight and the rest of Canterlot High as well, which can be relatable to many people and can actually teach a lesson to the target demographic like the shows "supposed to". for that reason, I would've like for sunset either pony form or her unseen human form to return or enter back into the portal and become pony twilight's student, shes smart, shes talented, and she has a lot to learn and twilight could easily have taught her and it would've been a lot more genuine than starlight, and maybe even have sunset do something grand and end up eventually making her own friends as the new mane six or even following in twilight's hooves and becoming an alicorn herself. Also having Sunset there for Starlight's capture of the mane 6 during the start of season 5 would have been extremely helpful because she could have easily figured out what was happening, she could have tricked Starlight into thinking she's betraying her teacher, and gotten starlight's true intentions and cutie mark discovered by the rest of the town, and it would've been way more believable then Fluttershy because Sunset herself was a villain at one point, and she's extremely crafty. Not to mention Sunset would end up driving Starlight away, Starlight would have to somehow manipulate the mane six into separating like in the season 5 finale, but without Starswirl's spell, and with them separated Sunset nor Twilight would completely notice because of how Sunset's teachings are really taking primary to Twilights and Sunset's attention, which would lead to a half season to a full season with Sunset learning friendship and making her own friends. This so when the next major threat does happen, (because we all know one will eventually), Sunset's group would have to step up and actually save the day, eventually leading to HER BECOMING STARLIGHT'S TEACHER and teaching her about friendship so that Starlight can redeem herself and become friends with Trixie like she is now. I also think Sunset would teach differently than Twilight, with her personality and all it would be a lot more challenging to both Starlight and Sunset. I also believe Sunset's teaching style would be very enjoyable to watch and to see her make mistakes while teaching Starlight about magic and friendship, which honestly could easily extend the series on to about 16 seasons before it got stale, adding new characters and groups to focus on, and etc.
  9. Okay, so we already know that the movie's production began around Season 4's timeframe. They had no way of knowing what new characters would be introduced, or how drastically the status quo of FIM would change back then. Yet they decided well in advance that regardless of how the last three seasons panned out, the movie would take place specifically between Seasons 7 and 8. With that in mind, the show's staff will have a lot of explaining to do, within the context of the show itself, as to why Discord, the Pillars, Ember, Thorax and his reformed changeling hive, were never around to help save Equestria from the Storm King. And why Shining Armor, Starlight, Trixie and Sunburst apparently decided to sit the whole thing out. If they don't have a good reason for being AWOL, that will just make them look like the worst friends ever. The Mane Six would not appreciate abandonment, and neither would the princesses. Especially Cadence. I mean, she gets turned into a statue, and her husband isn't around to give enough of a flying fuck to save her? That's messed up. How do you think they'll patch all this up?
  10. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but search came up with nothing for Starlight Cutie Mark when searching. So I'd like to start a discussion with you all. What is the meaning of Starlight's Cutie Mark? What's her talent? A Cutie Mark is earned when a pony discovers their special talent, the thing they're good at and do the best. It's not necessarily the only thing they will ever do with their life, nor are they going to be the best in the world at that thing, but it's the thing they're supposed to be the best at doing when such things come up. Starlight originally had issues with Cutie Marks, trying to hide hers and remove those of others to create a utopia. She tried to destroy the lives of the Manes and their Cutie Marks. She has switched the Alicorn sisters Cutie Marks to teach them a good lesson. It seems she's all up in everyone's behinds while also being Op at magic and then later not being able to lift a simple suitcase. But with the latter I digress. So what is our favorite reformed villain pony and basically Mane 8's special talent? What is she good at? What does the lavender and blueish swirling thing actually mean? IIRC this has never been brought up or mentioned in the show, so I thought I would make this thread to discuss. I feel she might just be good at magic in general like Twilight, but is that really possible? What do you guys think?
  11. Hi, everypony, No offense at all, I loved the movie a lot and it was really more than I expected, but there were still couple of things I wanted to see, although I knew some of them would not happen, so I want your idea by voting, which one of the cases disappointed you the most? Which One Did You Dislike The Most About The Movie? -Starlight and Trixie had no dialogues at all. -We only saw the CMC at one scene, in a cage. -Fluttershy only had few lines. -There was no Discord at all. (not counting the balloon that Pinkie Pie made xD) Vote for it, I wanna see your opinion. Not in the section? Still just pick the one that you wished to happen the most then. Peace!
  12. Plenty of people have compared Starlight Glimmer's 'equality village' ideology to Communism, Marxism, and assorted other notable cultic belief systems, but is there an actual combination of ideologies equating (pun not intended) to those propagated by Starlight? Is there an official philosophical classification that her village cult and its values fit into? Or, at very least, are there aspects of her beliefs that can be described in analogy to real-life ideological tenets and principles?
  13. The simple wallpaper I did no effects in just a placement of brushes and trying to create a light feeling with one my favorite ponies: Starlight Glimmer. Went back to the minimalist style I've been using on and off and trying to think of doing with Fluttershy in the next few weeks to come once I got time. Just been some time since I did a Fim Wallpaper of any kind!
  14. [Pre-Disclaimer: Wow, I did not expect that to turn into such a textwall. But hey, I am a rambler. Also, repost into my blog {is this my blog? I've never used it so far} from the Royal Problem thread] Disclaimer: if I've ever written an episode review before, it was long enough ago that I don't remember. So, bear with me] I suppose the most surprising thing is how perfectly everyone is cast for their role. I'll get to that in a minute, though. Eh, make that ten. Right now, I need to spend about five of them squealing in glee that not only, after six and a half seasons, we finally have an episode focused around the royal sisters. It's a good thing that I'm mature enough that it doesn't bother me that, despite several episodes focused around Luna specifically, Celestia had to share her with Twilight or her sister. There's no problem at all. Just kidding. Well, just... kidding about not kidding? Which was actually kidding? Let's just drop this would-be plot point, it's getting too recursive. Besides, we have enough to cram into twenty-two minutes as it is and we have no screen time to spare. Because, although the issue between the two princesses is the Big Thing driving the episode, there's three different plots going on throughout the whole thing. At least, anyway. The first is, as mentioned, the problem between Celestia and Luna. On the other hand, there's also the issue of Twilight constantly hovering over Starlight and finally, Starlight's doubts about the whole cutie-mark-switcharoo... yeah, let's call it a decision. Snap decisions are decisions nevertheless. Which kinda makes me wonder, was this episode written, more or less, for a while now but the writing staff had to wait until they had the right cast together? Yep, going back to the first sentence - that didn't take long, after all. See, after I came out of my initial Celestifanboy trance, I realized, not only did the episode pull off all three threads together without taking anyone out of character, but actually used some of their defining traits to tie all three subthreads together. Twilight was there as a facilitator to the crisis - not only would her well-established mentor worship make it impossible for her to step out of line and force a decision on the princesses, but the cognitive dissonance she experiences just considering the possibility that Celestia might be anything short of flawless just fuels the panic of Starlight being responsible for fixing it - something that pushes Starlight even more into second-guessing herself since Twilight makes it painfully obvious that she still has some pretty huge trust issues, even if she does make an effort to put them aside. Starlight, on the other hand, manages to build on her character development and tries the direct approach with the Princesses to get them talking to each other - which is likewise still on par with her personality so far, as she's shown time and time again that, when there's a task to complete, her first solution tends to be a straight line from point A to point B and if that fails, brute-force the obstacles and - maybe - ask for forgiveness later, but it's also backfired enough times that she was aware - if not really in a state to think - how much of a gamble it was. But doing so took a strongly iconoclastic personality, which none of the other characters in the entire show, save possibly Discord, have. And finally, there's the princesses. To be perfectly honest, I actually found the writers constantly reminding us how Luna tends to feel underappreciated for her work a little tiring and making her a fewer-dimensional character, but to be fair, all we've seen of her was either a} working in the dream realm or b} dealing with her personal crises, so some slack can easily be given there. As for Celestia, well, it was nice to see some development to her beyond being the wise and kind ruler and slash or mentor, so seeing her at her, shall we say, less regal went miles towards further humanizing what was, up to this point, really mostly an archetype. Once all the pieces are laid out and the plot gets underway, everything does tend to go more or less as you'd expect - despite each princess' expectation of how easy their day is going to be, turns out it's actually pretty exhausting. But the unexpected thing is that the writers show us more than that - that Celestia's job is actually physically exhausting to the point that she can probably hammer nails with her cheek muscles, and when things don't go as planned, she rarely has a chance for a do-over - just move on to the next thing on the to-do list. Luna, on the other hand, gets no company, no support network and rather than having a list of tasks to check off, she has to deal with each unique dream crisis on the fly and using only her own personal strength. And boy, when we do get to the dreams, we're really in for a wild ride. The dreambubbles alone are going to fuel fanon like crazy - is that dream Cadence's or Flurry's? Why is the Doctor lurking around the maze? Are those Applejack's parents? Will ever Princess Derpy?! Ayhem. Let's get back to Starlight. I've mentioned before that, from where I'm standing, the relationship between Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer seemed less like one between two friends and more like a recovering addict and their rehabilitation officer, and rightfully so. For her entire life, Starlight had been using magic as a shortcut and, if you look closely, when her first attempt to get the princesses talking to each other fails, the impetus for her brute forcing yet another problem doesn't seem to be desperation as much as frustration and moments later she becomes aware of the gravity of her actions. Hilariously enough, even through all of the terror, she manages to keep her direct honesty. And while she definitely had more avenues to force Celestia and Luna to talk to each other, whether calling on the fact that the Map sent her to them, or even cashing in on the fact that she saved them from Chrysalis, talking is not her strong point. All her life, she'd specialized in leadership and magic, and when pushed into a situation where she can't command attention, let alone authority, she reflexively reached for the hammer. So, after her Twilight helpfully pushes her along the road to a full blown neurosis, seeing her nightmare is kind of a given. And since Luna barely made it through Celestia's day, it's natural that Celestia would be hilariously unprepared for a night in Luna's shoes. And once the nightmare starts rolling, there's not much to do than sit back, grab some popcorn and enjoy the ride. And what a ride it is - nevermind just the appearance of Daybreaker, hearing Nicole Oliver cut loose and ham it up to eleven was a cherry on a cake. But another surprising thing is that, instead of taking two of the most common tropes for stopping the dream entities - reaching out to Starlight or working together with Luna, it reminded us that there will be problems that we need to solve without relying on anyone else, and that encouragement from someone we trust and respect can help us find the strength we need to achieve what seems like an unreachable goal. So, in the end, I think we've had a total of three, make that four morals. First, that when dealing with hard work yourself, it's easy to fall into the trap of believing that someone else has it much easier than you, and it often helps to talk to them about it - not only to keep it from bottling up, but to get their perspective as well. Then, there's the reminder that no tool is inherently good or bad by itself, but rather, how it's used. Starlight using magic to switch their cutie marks was a right call - not the right call, as there may have been others - but after several harsh lessons where trying to magic others into doing what you say, it's easy to see how she'd start associating it with Something She Should Never Do, and it's a good thing to be reminded that, when all you have is a hammer, sometimes a problem really is a nail. Third, that it's a good thing to be able to self-reliant - sometimes you don't have friends or family to help you, and there's nothing left but give up or step up to the challenge. And finally... no matter how interested you are, no matter how much of an emotional stake you have in a situation, if someone {or something, in this case} wiser and better informed puts a person in charge of solving it, it's often a good idea to step off, especially when they make it clear you're not helping. But I don't think Twilight got that one just yet.
  15. It's an argument that i have seen quite a few times around this fandom and even till this day, i have never understood why that is even a problem to begin with, since nobody gave a damn about it before season 6 when Starlight showed. What is the thought process of people, who say that unicorns are not allowed to use magic to solve their problems, considering they live in a magical fantasy world, where magic is an all day accurance in this world? As we have seen in the show since the beginning of the show, Unicorn use Magic not just for everyday things, but they also use for their everyday jobs. It would be horrible to let them not use magic. How is a barbar supposed to work without his scissors? Or a Plumber without his pliers, a Doctor without his Stethoscope, a lumberjack without his saw, you get the point. People say that Magic can be dangerous. Well, so can be certain jobs that i just listed. There are certain everyday things that people do all the time in this world, that some would consider dangerous, like climbing a high ladder, or working with a saw. Nobody is complaining about though. Do you think people go a bit over the top about this?

    Art evolution.

    It's been a month since I've started doing a daily drawing. And Oh Boy, it's been a blast. I didn't liked it at first, but little by little I think I became better... Maybe. It all started with this "thing" which I didn't take too seriously, but it was my first pony in a while. Close to 5 years without even touching a pen to draw. It hurted. Then I did this. I like this style better. It reminds me about those old joke magazines like MAD. I tried to replicate the last drawing's style, but didn't work. Her face is derpy without the cute. I actually like this Octavia, but i have to admit, the lightning doesn't make sense. It's a problem I'm struggle with even today, but sooner or later I'll overcome such flaws. Aaand, here I began to make those horrible intrusive text highlights. They take a lot of space and later when it's not 22 days anymore, it became useless. With this one I took a little risk. I like the colors, but they're oversaturated. Here's when I tried to do a background that wasn't just clouds or two colors. I didn't detailed that much, but I liked it when I did it. Today, not so much, but I kinda have respect to it.Was the first time that I tried to do a good shading... "good" xD well, it's not that bad. With this one, I tried an old, OLD comic book style which I didn't know how to do. It turned out decent, but it's nothing compared with other styles. I kinda like it even today though. This Luna brings me issues. I liked the concept, but the final results are... Special. The perspective is so messy, oh goodness. This I don't like. Not at all. Moving on! This was the first one that I really liked how it turned out. I like the highlights, the background is okay, and the lineart is charming. It was the best I did since the beginning imo. Besides, Dashie with Tank is an idea that I'd love to do more often. This was the time that I've started to do certain things, like the mane style, the shadows and highlights, and more "dynamic" poses. They're still stiffy, but here I noticed that I was improving after a long time. ... And I watch this one, and I laugh. Oh god, look at the expression, the proportions, the background! I thought it was ok, but now I realize that it wasn't that good as I expected xD It's not terrible, and it's better than the others, but still, it's not as good as the next ones, thankfully. That's a good sign. I like to mess with the ways of doing the magic effect. This one is... weird. The style is weird, the expressions are weird, and even the shading is. I kinda, sorta, maybe like it, but I feel ashamed every time I look at it well, it was more than 2 weeks ago. I think I've improved. Maybe. Now, this is one of my personal favourites. This is when I really liked how it was turning out, and I can't find any major flaws besides Luna's face. But even still, I think it's funny and doesn't ruin the whole image. Here's when my shading started to look good. I mess up sometimes, but I've learned my lesson since the Crusaders one. Oh geez... Welp, this was the image when all my mane styles started to be like silk... Not really, but I love Celestia's. And this one... I messed up with the shading in a couple of ponys, specially in Rarity, but I LOVE the feeling I receive from it. It reminds me about those promotional posters from movie theaters. And I love how Sunset, Pinkie, Starlight and Twilight look. With this one I tried to do a "good" background, but... Well, it's not that bad, but the pony proportions are messy, and the color is oversaturated again. I try to improve that even today. Keep it light and smooth, Eifie. Don't over do it. This one was simple. Notice the sense of movement and the way the ponys point to the next part of the text like they're dancing. They point to each other in a way, and I think it's fun. I really like to do Pinkie's mane, it's so messy and weird Even when I like the Fluttercord idea, I don't really like this one that much. The background is weird, and I could do the characters better. even though, I like the feeling it emanates. what I enjoy the most are Discord's wings. This one was fun to do. I love the Crusaders, and I enjoy doing them whenever I can. Even if the "18 days" image was just... Ugh. It's my least favourite. But this one redeemes that, right? (Redeemes? That's how you spell it? English is not my mother language, so don't mind me D: ). Oh my. The Apple-Pie family is tricky, but certainly fun. My thing is doing portrait drawings, and the style is weird but charming to me, haha! (Marble's mane is my favourite. Maud's expression is priceless.). And this one right there is special. Why? It was the first one that I send to Equestria Daily. And it was published. I won't lie to you, I was happy the rest of the day after I noticed that. Then Sethisto started to notice my drawings, and ever since many more of them were published on the page. I'm truly glad of that. I'm willing to do so much more because I have a little more feedback. The brony community is the best. Oh, and another one following the trend of the "13 days" one. Notice how now they're more balanced. Now is Twilight who has her eyes open, and the rest has them closed. She really is the princess of friendship, and I'd love to do more tributes about this fact. Kinda reminds me about the PPG. I think this one is my favourite. The shading is the best 've done in my opinion, and the message is fun. Celestia is used to be captured, so we don't have to worry. Some magical thing will save the day at the end of the afternoon. Should i say i really like the manes? This has a special place in my heart. Ember looks good, and the lightning is divine. (Sounds bad when it's my own drawing. I'm sorry! ) This one is a close second because the colors. This one is charming, and it's okay, but not of my favourites. I think I messed un a bit with the background, and the proportions are a little bit off. And Oh MY, what happenned to Sunburst's beard? That's not right! Besides Starlight's magic is light blue. Whoops. (Oh, you noticed the tea cup? Trixie approves. And the prediction came true, Spike and her shared a moment in the season premiere!). This was fun to do, but MY GOODNESS it take a lot of time, and it isn't even that great. The shading could be better, but that happens when you're on a schedule and try to do so many characters. Don't do that, people! Outside that, it's fun to watch and the illustration looks okay. This was the last one. Was the day before the season premiere, and I couldn't be happier. Notice how I get rid of the intrusive text since the "7 days left" one. I'm so glad about it. The countdown remains in the title, not in the image. And here's some others before and after the episode. The "meme" ones are too fun. I'll do some more this week. The title of this one is "Hiatus was just a nightmare, everypony!". It was published before the episodes aired. Those ones, you know. I hope you like watching them as I love doing them! Twitter! Follow me on dA for more!

    6 days left; Harmony at last.

    Well, that took a while. Yesterday I was watching Rainbow Rocks with my best friend, and it's actually beautiful how Sunset evolved as a character. But today it's not about her, though i'd like it to be (?) These days I've been watching seasons 5 and 6, and Starlight really grew on me. The main cast complements each other wonderfully, so I wonder, could Starlight be an official element like Sunset in the spin-off movies, or they'll keep it like this and move on? A 7th element on the main series is not necessary, and for that we have Sunset. That's kinda why I don't often compare them; they're an important member now, but accomplish very different roles. By seeing that movie, it's weird, but I can appreciate Starlight more for what and who she is and what she had been through. I'm more than glad that a great portion of the fandom considered her an official part of the group, and so do I. Even if she'll never be an official element, the connection she have with the others will keep them together, and it will only grow hopefully in season 7. We know the rest of the cast, that's why I skip my thoughts about them. I love them so much as characters. And I love making tribute images of them, of course. Twitter! deviantArt!

    5 days left; the mother of All.

    I have always respected Queen Chrysalis as a character, and as an antagonist. She's clever, manipulative, and before the season 6 finale, she had a complete army behind her. Just like Cadence, she was design to be a perfect ruler, to depend on love. She's Cadence's perfect shadow, obscure and terrifying. But the thing that calls my attention, is that she's in fact a mother. She has lost her reign, her subjects and her childrens. She's alone, and all she has known is now a reflection of treason. That's why it hurts me a little when she loses it all. At the same time, I can only wonder if she's capable of raise a whole new swarm by her own, or if she needs some, *cough*, partner. Equestrian biology is something I would take in college for sure. And this is not a surprise, we'll have a Chrysalis episode in season 7. It would surely surprise me if they forget about her for a whole season, haha. Please don't, Hasbro. We need either a revenge or a redemption episode. Twitter! deviantArt!

    3 days left, a friend's friend.

    I was going to put Derpy somewhere in there... i really like the idea of Sunburst meeting Trixie and hanging out. Also, I consider Spike as a really good friend of Starlight. I hope they do some more stuff together. Twitter! deviantArt!

    Less than 2 days; welcome home

    It's a shame they killed king Sombra. This dream is impossible now, but i kinda like the idea of all the season's villains united. Well, it's more a tribute for the season 7 villain. I wonder what or who will it be. I hope the new characters are interesting as well. Twitter! deviantArt!
  22. Spike, you really deserve more. One reason behind my sudden love for Starlight, was because you were so supportive to her and helped her when needed. You really do a dynamic duo. I'll enjoy every time you are on the same scene for sure. Not only it makes Starlight more likeable, but encourages your character to grow and improve by helping others. That's the reason behind supportive characters per se and after all. Cathy Weseluck has a lovely voice, we don't want it to go to waste, do we? All the cheers today goes to the Number One Assistant Spike. Twitter! deviantArt!

    15 days left; Zecora celebration.

    Ah, Zecora. You are a very interesting character; you're clever, wise, talented in traditional magic and skilled in brewery, alongside with your capability to solve problems that escape to the hooves of our main protagonists. I feel sincerely bad that you are so underused. They have missed so much opportunities to demonstrate just how much you are valued by other ponys and creatures around you. I have always seen you as the type of mentor Twilight needed. You have helped her a lot more that other princesses I know, shotsfired, the Celestia's method is risible, if not thrown in the air waiting to somebody to catch it, and guided her when times required. You've demonstrated that you care and share without wanting something in return, as seen in The Cutie Pox, Bridle Gossip, Magic Duel, and so on. A good example of your lovely heart is that moment in On Your Marks when we see you and the Crusaders making potions in your hut. It's a short, but strong moment that shows perfectly your caring nature. That, or you just like to spare your knowledge with others for the sake of enjoyment. Either way, it's a pleasure every time you're on screen. Which leaves the question; why they hesitate that much on giving you credit? On the last seasons it seemed like you're just a resource whenever the story needs a brief cameo of "mystic and arcane". Your mere existence still is a mystery, but all these questions are still in the air too. We know how you are, but the when and how of yourself is never explained. We know more about Diamond Tiara than Zecora. Let me tell you, that mere idea is disappointing. You are capable of making a complete story on your own indeed. They just don't know how to approach it and show your better strengths. And if the excuse is the way you blend, then they have encountered a bitter end. Your character has much potential, but the thing is, we simply don't happen to see it. You're flawless, wise, virtually perfect on your ways, and I feel sorry for it, because that makes a boring character. That normally makes me be indifferent; I particularly didn't like Celestia that much on her early days, and was for that exact reasons. We didn't happen to know her enough to care about her daily life. It was until episodes like A Canterlot Wedding, Lesson Zero and Magical Mystery Cure that I felt more interested on her as a character. Especially in Slice of Life, and that's a shame that it's only for a few moments. We knew then that she is a sister, she has emotions, she gets mad and has her strong opinions about things that matter little to nothing, like forgetting a gift for the couple and blaming her beloved Luna. She became real. We could empathize with her internally, not only because She Is A Princess, which is not a character but a mere title. A card of presentation doesn't make anyone more likeable. The same treat goes to Zecora; if her character were just wise, problem solver, or a mere entity that exists just by name and title, she would be forgettable. But you're not. We know you're not. You happen to enjoy yourself. I'd love to see you more on the episodes, and of course I hope there are more episodes that consider you important. What I'm trying to tell is, even if your appearances are just cameos on the last five seasons it seems, these are the moments when you happen to shine the most. Your way of telling spooky stories, your caring about the young ones, the enjoyment you get by helping others in need, your calm and relaxing nature, and the fact that even your knowledge is limited, makes you more real. Parasprites, Zecora's only weakness. We know how Zecora is when she's calm, but I'd love to see her struggle. I think tsundere Chrysalis would like to hear it. Just to finish, here's my final thoughts. I'm certain that we only see the surface, and it is a real, real shame, because it neglects everything we learned on your first episode; "Maybe next time you will take a second look, and not judge the cover of the book". We love you, Zecora. I've enjoyed every episode you're in, and if you one day decide to raise and shine, everyone that sees you will realize that you're one of the main protagonists of the series, even if you share even less screen than Snips and Snails. Maybe on the next Equestria Girls or the incoming MLP Movie you'll have your chance and play your part (Does anybody read the whole thing? Haha). Only one thing more; I'd LOVE an interaction with Starlight. I'm sure they will understand and enjoy each other. Twilight missed her opportunity.
  24. Oh, Sunset. Even if you're not technically canon on the main series, you're a part of my heart. The image is not Sunset focused, nor Twilight. It's about the feeling and the spectrum of emotions that means to have someone to care about. The decisions we make are all we are, and the way we express our love and care is what defines the relations we make on this terrifying world. Don't let your love fade. Feed it. Make it grow. Maybe you'll save someone else's life. Twitter! deviantArt!
