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

Kaze ni Nare
@ILoveMyoozik

I mean, she congratulates Sweetie on being grown up near the beginning. Rarity knew in her heart of hearts that Sweetie was too old but was projecting and deluding herself. Like, this exchange happens before Rarity’s lowest point in the episode:

Sweetie Belle: Doesn’t look like it’s going so well. I’m just gonna do a quick check with the CMCs.
Rarity: Well, I guess duty calls, and-and you, you have that now…
Sweetie Belle: What?
Rarity: Oh nothing, nothing. Go on.


It’s like Honest apple. A beginning and an end I really like with a middle I REALLY don’t.

I saw it as her being a drama queen, but it’s Rarity so what do you expect? I get that she’s busy, but wouldn’t it have been better if she said: "Sweetie Belle, I so do miss spending time with you, what do you want to do for the both of us to enjoy?" Even if that actually happened, there was still Sweetie Belle’s passive agressive attitude, where this might sound biased, but I hate passive agressive attitudes both in fiction and real life.

That’s a better way of putting it, except that the middle is made of molasses and I’d rather be watching a yarn documentary.

I liked Forever Filly, may not be the best episode of S7, but it was still pretty solid.

It’s not the worst episode of Season 7, but it’s one I don’t have fond memories of watching.

If I had to say what my guilty pleasure episode of MLP is, it’d be Rainbow Falls. There is so much wrong with the episode, but all of the jokes are just so funny, and I was more amused by the bad writing and the OOC nature of it all. Fuck the Wonderbolts though.

I still maintain that the Wonderbolts only intended to have Rainbow as a temp replacement until they were absolutely sure Soarin’ got better and Soarin’ and Rainbow misunderstood what was going on.

Either that or they were testing Rainbow.

On that note, it’s weird that Soarin’s name actually has the apostrophe in it as its official spelling.

Maybe, but why would Spitfire lie to Soarin’ just so they could get Rainbow on their team?

The thing is, I don’t think she actually lied, there was just a misunderstanding.

Looking back at it, the fact that they liked Dash training with them and seeing how good she was, to the point of coaxing her to join their team and straight up lying to Soarin’ so he doesn’t find out is still a scummy move. I fail to see how that’s a misunderstanding.

Did they lie though? Or were they just genuinely trying to make sure he got completely better?

Admittedly, most of my opinions on the episode were influenced by this fanfic, which presents a different take on events and is one of those rare fix fics that isn’t bashing the characters.

I’ve lost interest in MLP fanfics entirely, but I probably wouldn’t have read a fix fic even back then because whatever they fixed would only make me bitter the show didn’t do it that way in the first place.

Even though I’m not into fanfics at all, fix fics that portray both parties in the wrong are favorites of mine instead of siding one over the other and jizzing all over their screen with their bias, unless they manage to make convincing evidence that makes it worth reading.

I don’t read fanfics, full stop. I just plain don’t like reading extremely long trails of words wondering when i’m going to stop.

btw, what is "fix fics"?

@Galestorm
I don’t either, fuck all that.

I think fix-fic refers to a work of fanfiction where the author believes it "puts right" something they didn’t like in an episode.

Fix Fics(or accusation fics, as they’re also called) are basically, an episode comes out that people don’t like, and the writer decides to make a fanfic trying to "fix" problems….or in most cases use the characters as mouthpieces to whine about why an episode sucks. The chances of them being good a rare phenomenon

Also, because people were talking about it earlier, I don’t think Rainbow Falls was that bad

Hasbro shutting that shit down

Molestia was wrecked by the combined efforts of channer trolls and Haters™ abusing Tumblr’s craptastic reporting system.

@Badumsquish
I want an episode about Fleur De Lis and Blueblood dating

She’s clearly made her choice already, and his pants are much fancier than Prince Bloobloo’s.

It could still work, though, with my headcanon that she’s Neigh Orleans’s Ambassador to Equestria, and also its best secret agent; it would be funny to have an episode built around Very Serious International Espionage where the spy in question can’t get anything done because the mark they assume must be hiding something big… really is exactly as shallow and irrelevant as he seems.

@ILoveMyoozik
See Sisterhooves Social, and Sleepless In Ponyville for some examples

Episodes from six and four season earlier, you mean? The last episode where they spent any significant time together was The Cart Before The Ponies— an entire season back— and even then Rarity demonstrated rather quite a lot of disconnection from Sweetie’s current interests.

I’d rather be watching a yarn documentary
