I’ve decided to make a thread honoring one of the most underappreciated characters on the show. Starlight seems to get a lot of undeserved hate from the fandom, especially on this site, so it’s only fair we balance out that vitriol by giving her some love. Look at that face. How could you possibly say anything bad about her?

In this thread, you can post pictures of Starlight, write fanfics about her, share Starlight-related videos, and generally discuss what you like about our favorite student of Twilight. There are some rules however.
1. No Starlight haters allowed. This place is for showing appreciation towards Starlight, not bashing her.
2. Appreciation for Starlight must be genuine. You can’t make sarcastic or passive aggressive remarks about her, i.e. "I really like how Starlight is an overpowered Mary Sue who’s so easily forgiven."
3. Stay on topic. This thread isn’t about Twilight, Sunset, etc. You can talk about other characters in your posts, but make sure the main focus is Starlight.
4. NSFW content is allowed, but be sure to warn users of the explicit nature. We do have people that don’t like to see that sort of thing.

Other than that, feel free to have fun. If this thread does well, I might make appreciation threads of other controversial characters like Flash Sentry or Flurry Heart.

I liked Starlight at first,then I thought she was a little overused.I like when she is paired with Trixie.I wish that would happen more often.It felt like Trixie’s character was salvaged,and starlight was interesting again.

Maybe this is a unpopular opinion, but I think she was underused. She has appeared in 10 episodes out of 26 of season 6. She didn’t speak for 2 of those episodes. Admittedly, she likely had the most episodes about her than any other character in season 6, but I think that her not being forced into other episodes helped balance things out.

I meant for a relatively new character,she was overused.Zecora,Tree Hugger,Little Strongheart,even Dischord haven’t been used as often as starlight.also,what they did with her when she was there wasn’t as good as it could have been.and the Christmas Carol episode was just weird.I still liked it.

I thought Applejack was the most unappreciated?

I fucking love Starlight Glimmer. Apart from Moondancer, Trixie, and Twilight Sparkle, I find her to be the most sympathetic and relatable character in the show. She is so cute and honestly seems like she is trying to do better. Also, while I will admit that I find Sunset Shimmer’s redemption story arc to be better and more heartwrenching, making you want to comfort her and tell her everything’s alright, I like how with Starlight they really show what it is like to have social issues.

How the hell could anyone think that. What is relatable about her?

I too have problems making friends and socializing. I mean, sure, I can do stuff when it is a teacher or someone older than me telling me to do it, but when some classmate tries to talk to me, I get nervous and scared, just like Starlight.

All of her problems were solved instantly and everyone forgave her, even her childhood friend came back to comfort her. Being a twilight clone, she is favored by destiny in every possible way and it doesn’t feel like she’s earned any of this at all. That’s not relatable or sympathetic.

I’m sorry you feel that way. To me, though, she is relatable and sympathetic.
