I always hated when Rarity called Spike Spikey Wikey. It seems to be very unprofessional and kind of ooc with Rarity.
I prefer in A Dog and Pony Show and A Molting where Rarity felt more like a responsible and professional employer.
I think Spikey Wikey is a way of artificially making Rarity closer to Spike without acutally earning it.

Sunset Shimmer post-first-EG-film is the first example that comes to mind. Despite she was frustrated in some scenes (like in Friendship Games), she tried her best to keep it in.

There was All Bottled Up where Starlight tried to keep her anger in check for fear of retaliation and thinking that she’s regressing back
@Cosmas-the-Explorer
How so? Seeing that Spike is her friend and someone she was growing close with, it’d make sense that a character like her would give him an embarrassing affectionate nickname, and Spike sure wasn’t complaining about the name due to his infatuation with her. Also, there is separating her work life from her personal life.

a tierlist i made back in 2020;
note how high starlight is, is based on her time back when she was a villain, not the afterstuff… and in general some things would change now but the S tier will always stay the same

I think the student six are mid tier characters at best. I don’t hate them but I don’t found them interesting beyond the concept of segregated races first integrating into school. It doesn’t make sense how the mane six seem to have to learn more lessons than them. And most of their personalities are pretty much the same as each other unlike the more unique student six.
Then again this is based on main characters and supporting characters. If it was a all characters list they would at least still be above like background ponies and if i were to change it, they would be above characters like derpy and flurry heart, flash, garble. Yona is the best one of the student six tho for me she’s at least a ok tier character.

And probably above lyra and bon bon too although i do think its interesting how lyra and bon bon relationship grows subtlety in the background. They aren’t really anything beyond that even if I do really ship them and like that they got together

Well there is also the fact that they were introduced late into the game and didn’t get a chance to fully pop through except for a few characters like Smolder and Gallus

Even if I liked the Student Six, especially their color pallete together, I was always more interested in the idea of the Mane Six and the school’s relationship.
I always felt like there should have had more times that the Mane Six taught the kids a moral lesson. It’s okay for the Mane Six to mess up, sometimes adults can be out of touch with young crowd, but I think this was a good oppurtunity to show how the Mane Six matured. I’m looking at you AJ and RD! It’s like if your Sunday School teachers are teaching you about not being jealous when you youself are very jealous.
And honestly maybe only Twilight, Fluttershy and Starlight should have taught in the school. I just don’t see Rainbow as a good teacher.
Getting back to the Student Six, maybe they should have had a lesser amount to have more focus on certain ones. At the very least there should be some focus on how the Mane Six positively influenced those rascals.

To be honest, the Student 6 were okay. My biggest problem with this is that the writers didn’t use the new characters to tell new stories in a compelling creative way, they were there to learn about friendship and the stories written for them were good enough and nothing else.
If the writers introduced new students apart from these six young students, they would use the new characters to tell the same story.
If you want to use a new character, don’t repeat the same previous stories just because that character is new. Take that advantage to use characters in complementary ways to get new conflicts and new stories, kinda like Pixar with one of their wonderful storytelling tips:

I never liked how Pipp was into hairstyling. I thoight it took away from her music ability. I feel like they made her into hairstyling so they could write her similaely to Rarity.
And speaking of other characters.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Izzy. I did like her a bit in the first movie but I always found Sunny to be way more interesting. Although now I think Izzy in TYT has no interest for me. I
Zipp I want to see her do more science. It would be so cool to see that.
I’ll be honest TYT doesn’t really interest. At first I was surprised how it was not terrible and how it had some nice first shorts. But I wish these shorts would just be a few at a time. I would like to see a series with at least 10 minutes.

I really wanna showcase my own changeling headcanon, but unfortunately with all the fans who prefer the show’s canon (especially seasons 6-9), I’m afraid people will either hate it or disregard it simply cuz it doesn’t follow what the
actual shape-shifting lovebuggo canon is.
sigh I feel so lonely. :(

What canon? They barely established anything before rendering them extinct.
I’m sure you can post your version of things in any headcanon thread(though i know only one) without anyone that matters giving you grief.
