rainbow rocks Did you forgive Sunset Shimmer?

I've noticed not a lot of people I know did not really forgive Sunset for trying to destroy Equestria by turning into a demon.  Meh, I've seen weirder things.

 

Did you guys forgive Sunset Shimmer for what she did?

I am one of those people that just doesn't like to hold grudges. I try to forgive most people for nearly anything. Having grudges of any sort ends up making me feel a sort of sadness inside, so letting those feelings go is a goal I make. Same with Sunset here. I was probably in the .5% of people that felt a sort of of sorrow for Sunset at the end of the first EqG film. Her breaking down actually hit me kinda heard ,though I know many kinda thought that part was dumb.

 

In all, I forgive her. Not having any real friends in your can take its toll.

Of course.

 

It's been shown since then that she's genuinely made an effort to make amends, become accepted, and legitimately gets upset when those she considers her friends are in danger-it's definitely a real turn around from the Sunset Shimmer she used to be.

Of course I forgive her.

 

Since then, she seems to have made a real effort to change for the better, and I personally think this really shows in the sequels Rainbow Rocks and the Friendship Games. Heck, Sunset just recently become my second favourite EqG character.

Of course.  The entire movie she actually made an effort to change herself for the better and had to actually struggle for redemption.

Which is more than I can say for Starlight Glimmer, even though I loved the finale and like her character.

Plus Rainbow Rocks mad Sunset Shimmer one of my favorite characters.

I actually hated sunset in the first EQG she was just so fucking annoying with her plan and everything and when she was defeated I was so happy but, ever since RR she's in my top 3 favorite EQG she's just too adorable!

when i first saw the first EQG film i thought she was a jerk and when i saw the second one i thought she was trying to make amends and after the third one i thought she has more than made up for her past mistakes.

so yes i forgave her.

Definitely, unlike a majority of redeemed characters *coughstarlightcough* she wasn't instantly forgiven, she had to work tooth and nail to gain everyone's trust and goodwill

 

Her heel-face turn may have very weak, but it's definitely worked out to her favor in the long run

I think she's in the same boat as Luna in that she was lucky to be defeated when she was. Both of them allowed themselves to be corrupted and only snapped out of it when their plans failed. Had Sunset not been taken down when she was, she likely would have carried on past the point of redemption, but even though she was lucky to be stopped before too much damage was done, her reformation has been very genuine, so she is deserving of forgiveness. The same can happen with real people. Some start going down the wrong path and are lucky enough to get a wake up call and turn their lives arounf, others aren't so fortunate, it doesn't always mean that one is worse than the other, sometimes it's just they way things work out.

 

On a side note, the way her crying scene was handled in the UFP version The Movening, is probably my favorite scene from any UFP. Really did make me lol

I didn't at first. It's easy to say you're sorry after you got defeated in your demon form. There was a part of me that thought she was just making that all up to get off the hook.

 

But, as of Rainbow Rocks, I really do forgive her. She really does seem very apologetic and seeing her get ostracized for actions she is deeply regretful of really hits me in the feels.

I forgave her because while I didn't like how her character acted at first I grew to like her and Hell...Luna got forgiven for turning into Nightmare Moon and trying to plunge Equestria into eternal shadow...so forgiving Sunset for turning into a demon and trying to take over Equestria is easy if you ask me. Plus her turn around is genuine and it shows in Rainbow Rocks as well as the chapter books where she is a main focus because it shows that NOT EVERYONE FORGAVE HER OR LIKED HER. For the most part Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy & Twilight were the only actual ones to forgive her outright at first and the rest of the school avoided Sunset and the CMC personally tried to make her life miserable because they felt she was taking them away from their sisters(Sweetie & Apple Bloom) and after all that she finds it in herself to forgive THEM and that adds to her character which is why I love her so much.


 


Sunset is best human and as always

Yes, I forgive her, she has changed turned away from evil, it takes a whole lot of guts to turn away from old habits. She didn't let pride keep her from become good. Not only did she turn away from evil, she also became a protagonist! You got to give her credit for that one!
