Thank you everyone for making me realize that I am, in fact, a clop artist.
Good, now draw some delicious, delicious Twiluna.
I’m pretty certain Hasbro has nothing to do with this. For one, C&Ding individual blogs would be a vast waste of resources. It’s why they never go after fanfics, there’s just too many of them. In addition, Calpain has already stated it was the actions of a lone butthurt tumblr user who reported it. Considering this is the third time Molestia’s been taken down, I’m disappoint in Tumblr’s staff in allowing it to happen again after they already determined twice before it didn’t violate the TOS.
Unless you believe in one of the conspiracy theories that Calpain and EQD are doing Hasbro’s dirty work and are dishing out the damage control, this lies squarely at the foot of Tumblr’s users.
I enjoyed it. Another really nice episode. I was disappointed in the actions of Spitfire, though. You’d think the Captain of the Wonderbolts would act a bit less illegally (since I’m pretty sure the Equestria Games Committee would look down upon fraudulently admitting a new team member). I could see Fleetfoot playing the role as she’s a blank slate, but given what we know of Spitfire, it seems a little baffling to see her moral standings crumble. It was also really dickish of them to just kick Soarin under the bus. “Nopony’s been by to visit me.” What the hell? This is how the famed Wonderbolts treat their teammates?
It was also really nice seeing Soarin. I don’t know about anyone else, but I was happier to see him than Derpy. Derpy already has a personality--whether canon or fanon. We know nothing about Soarin other than his like of apple pie, and it was great seeing more of him. Hopefully they’ll flesh him out even more heading forward and give the Soarindash folks even more fuel for the growing fire.
I guess I’m the only one who’s never really been that big into Derpy. She’s nice, but the level some people take her to just seems silly sometimes. I did get my jimmies rustled over the censorship, but that was more because it was censorship than because it was Derpy.
