The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

The wiki has its uses to be sure, but when it’s wrong, it’s wrong. Wikis in general are flawed that way, they value editorial consensus and references over actually being right. A pizelle is a type of cookie. That name perfectly fits the older pony who was a Wonderbolt cadet and has a cookie cutie mark, but this is clearly not an animation error, it’s a different pony.

So what shall we do now?

We could assume that the pony with the cookie cutie mark has always been the same one and keep Sugar Cookie and the alias Pizzelle for her. Maybe she wore her hair differently in Wonderbolts Academy, maybe it’s an animation error. That way we get two ponies with similar looks.

We could also assume that the pony in Wonderbolts Academy is yet another pony. Since the one with the bangs is named Pizzelle in the Wonderbolts Academy Handbook, only the one with the curls in Wonderbolts Academy would keep the name Sugar Cookie, the one with the bangs would keep the name Pizzelle which would be un-aliased. That way we get three ponies with similar looks, two of whom are shown as Wonderbolts trainees on screen, but never at the same time. But then we’d have to, for example, split Orion into three ponies, too: fancy Earth pony, fancy unicorn, spiky unicorn.

I’m in favour of the former solution, but I’m not the one to decide.

These are both Sugar Cookie/Pizzelle (alias) and can stay that way. They have the same eyes, coat, and cutie mark. Just the forelock style is different, and that may be due to the wonderbolts uniform.


This character has a different coat color, eye color, and cutie mark, so I agree with renaming.

Noticed today that the wiki names this unicorn Cloverbelle. I’m fine with sticking with that.

Viva Reverie’s Irish cousin? Also, 28 tagged pics and counting. She’s been around for quite a while.

And since we aren’t voting again yet, let’s name another two hearty unicorns.

She’s been flying under the radar for several seasons now despite getting not exactly little exposure.


And then there’s her.


Speaking of the radar:

A comment has suggested Vibrant Melody three years ago already.

And another suggestion from a comment:

Maybe this’ll attract some more name suggestions: I’ve made a new solo focus crop of her.



Not that I dislike Concordia, it was my suggestion after all, but still…

I have a question. Do the three stallions in this picture have names yet? I don’t know if they do or not. If they do, please tell me what their names are. If not, I don’t mind us giving them names here in the future.
