You might be thinking about OCs/fan characters. I get those mixed up all the time :D

I’m just joking with ya.

You’re also trying to read her in the best possible light.

It goes both ways.

Although being positive about her is usually better than opposite.

But then Shining Armor, Twilicorn and Equestria Girls came along, Faust left, Derpy was changed because 99% of people don’t know it’s even an offensive word (I’m absolutely certain Super Mario Maker blocks "Thunder Palace" as a level name) and Fighting is Magic and Button’s Adventures were shut down. Now all people care about are the Mane 6 and fucktoy OCs. I wonder if there’s a statistic set for what gets uploaded daily on average… Maybe the admins can think of something…

Well of course, it’s been around for around twice as long and came from an era where every little thing from MLP got every form of art to it.

It’s a real shame, I legitimately think the seaponies/hippographs (particularly Princess Skystar) have a lot of potential that the fanfic writers seem rather disinterested in exploring.

Tempest is one of only four characters introduced since The Crystalling to have 1000 images (the others being Flurry Heart, Ember and Thorax)

On the tag list, she’s on page 3. The next Season 7 character is Pear Butter, at the bottom of Page 7. Those are the only two characters introduced this season to have more pictures here than Philomena. Remember her? No?

Next movie character is Capper, who is #2520 on most populous tags. There are more pictures of Tom the Rock than there are of any TWABA characters besides Tempest and Pear Butter. Tom. Fucking Tom.

Well, to be fair, she was the only new character introduced in The Movie, so it just makes sense that she’d have the only new character tag.

honestly, it’s too bad there aren’t psychosomatic meds in equestria. they’ve been lucky so far with their scheme of "set the lunatic / sociopath / psychopath with reality-warping abilities loose and just hope everything works out in the end."

you know, that’s something i’d love to see. they attempt this with chrysalis and it fails miserably. she takes full advantage of this to pretend to be reformed only to catch them at their most vulnerable, and nearly take them down.

@DanielTepesKraus

I feel like those only apply if you’re trying to read starlight in the worst possible light.

Like, she definitely thinks irrationally and jumps to all sorts of conclusions. In fact, the things people lambast Star for are things she does as a result of her irrational jumps in logic.

She had nam flashbacks just thinking about seeing a childhood friend again. She’s definitely neurotic.

Her showing remorse is entirely down to interpretation. Like, if you’re watching already disliking her, then obviously you’ll interpret all the times she feels crap about what she’s done as acting. You’re primed for it.

I’d argue she IS learning from experience, as her approach is slowly evolving. It’s just a slow one.

fair enough she was actually portrayed as power hungry, but even that was just used as a tool to make her into a bully.

@gingerninja666
i dunno dude. this checklist of how to spot a sociopath? a lot of these apply to starlight. not all, but quite a few:

Superficial charm and good intelligence
Absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking
Absence of nervousness or neurotic manifestations
Unreliability
Untruthfulness and insincerity
Lack of remorse and shame
Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior
Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love
General poverty in major affective reactions
Specific loss of insight
Unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations
Fantastic and uninviting behavior with alcohol and sometimes without
Suicide threats rarely carried out
Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated
Failure to follow any life plan

@Josh103

Yes, she’s very stunted. But I really do think she’s getting better. She’s moved from being consciously oblivious of wrong doing to it being more of an instinct that she’s gaining a bit more of a hold on.

@Villain Pony

Then what about TWABA, where Starlight had a little breakdown when her town started trying to give her authority again,because she knew how awful she was. Or All Bottled Up, when she used magic on herself because she knew that her anger might make her do bad things to Trixie? She’s not a sociopath. She’s aware when she does things wrong. She’s just stunted.

One thing, I dislike how the gag about starlight’s backstory is to go: "My friend left me I’m evil now lol" ignoring how genuinely traumatized she was in Crystalling at the prospect of seeing Sunburst again.

Even if it’s petty to a lot of people, at this point it should be clear that Starlight’s head is not like a lot of people’s, and it was important to HER.

That’s the issue. It’s only important if it affects her. She’s a selfish sociopath who has to be told what’s wrong and yet keeps resetting back to an unempathic cunt.
