I was moreso mentioning Dio and the others to show that not everyone deserves redemption. Even in a cartoon with little to no mature themes such as MLP.
So I’ve heard. Since I personally liked the Season 9 finale myself, I knew that I was going to disagree with it so I didn’t bother with a lot of it, just what the author had to say behind the scenes.
So there’s this comic that caught my eye called “Fix” which like the title says, is a fix fic/vent piece towards the Season 9 finale. I skimmed most of it because I knew what I was getting into but on one of the recent panels, I read the description and I do have something to say there. I can understand his frustration over the Princesses choosing to stone the Trio instead of trying to redeem them and I can somewhat get his point about how it goes against the idea of friendship and all that, but I drew the line over the claims that it “ruined the entire show” cause it just sounded like exaggeration. That entire finale coloring their perception of the whole show is just absurdly ludicrous and I really can’t get behind that thinking. It sounded like they were treating the whole thing way way too seriously and it’s just dumb to me. That and another description I read where they said that they can’t watch G5 because of the finale is also pretty stupid.It’s pretty much why I’m not a fan of fix fics cause most of the time it just seems like excuses for the author to vent out and whine by using the characters as mouthpieces.
I feel like some people really need to let it go when it comes to their hatred of a character. There’s a difference between hating and disliking a character and hating and disliking a character incessantly and making sure everyone knows about it. Especially prevalent in places that don’t even mention said character or is contextually different but still use it as excuses to regurgitate the same points over and over again.
Fall of Equestria is the one with the Caribou, right? I wasn’t aware it went beyond just one fic from just one author. Shows the attention I paid to the FIMFiction community.
Funnily enough, this reminded me of something else that launched a thousand fics. A Canterlot Wedding spawned its own group of accusation fics back then. The one story I remember being good, like the author merely took an opportunity to explore what-ifs and ran with it rather than, well, venting their rage (whether at the episode or its reaction fics), turns out to have included Caribou.
As in, the species. They had nothing to do with the Caesar’s Legion 2.0 of FoE, other than (understandably) triggering several red flags among the readers when they showed up. Incidentally how I learned about FoE’s Caribou were even a thing to begin with.
For example, I read this one fix fic of The Mysterious Mare Do Well where after the episode, the Mane 5 throw Rainbow Dash a party to congratulate her for her heroism and during it, Dash nonchalantly says about how the whole dilemma was really making her feel and her friends felt bad for their actions. In that fic, it worked because all the characters were in-character, it didn’t make it all melodramatic with its tone and had an understanding of the episode. If “Fix” was more like that, then maybe I would see what they were coming from but the harsh and whiny tone of it all kept me away combined with the author’s ramblings.
There were so many more sensible things Twilight could’ve done that didn’t include turning herself to stone and giving control to Celestia and Luna. Like, she could’ve decided to ask Luna how to dreamwalk, for her desired purpose of understanding them (she has an indefinite amount of time to figure this out, if she feels so inclined, free them from stone and keep them contained another way while she figures it out, need not get them involved), or she could’ve brought that Deus Ex Flashback Potion from Princess Twilight Sparkle, that is, the S4 premiere, into play.
A lot of stories more or less centered around killing/curb-stomping caribou somehow, too.
(…) They’re an entire race of Villain Stus.
I don’t think I was aware that it started as a fic.
That’s how the magic works in Fix. The Twilight can see their backstories is to turn herself to stone.
