@Everyone saying Brony hate has gone down:

You guys obviously haven’t been to tumblr recently.

Even after Pinkiepony’s been exposed for the lying, attention-whoring, misandrist, hypocritical, smut-drawing sociopath that she is a thousand times over, the damage is already done.

Thanks to DWM, Tumblr’s at an all-time high of SJW sheep believing whatever sourceless claims you thow at them. You could tell them that a white, cishet brony christian male had taken over Mexico in a military coup and those idiots would eat it up like they’d their own veggie burgers.

Goddammit, even the insecure frat dudebros and 12 year old CoDpiece kiddies have given up on annoying us, and now we’ve got Feminists-in-name-only on our backs! I swear if it’s not drama within the fandom, it’s drama without.

>Implying Tumblr wasn’t always full of sheep
Remember that fake article about a brony being arrested for bestiality?
I agree that the fake feminists are a problem, but that’s not just our problem. They are like bad trolls looking for any target they can find to annoy, they crave attention and people keep feeding them.

I feel like we should put up a sign on this article:

“IS OKAY FOR YOU TO LIKE PONE. IS ALSO OKAY TO NOT LIKE PONE. BUT DO NOT MAKE HATE FOR BRONE BECAUSE THEY LIKE PONE. AND DO NOT MAKE HATE FOR NON BRONE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT LIKE PONE. THANK YOU BYE.”

Just saying.

Twilight said something in this episode that really puts her position in Ponyville into perspective. “You know I’m helping everypony I can.” She used to be a librarian. Basically, she’s upgraded to local Messiah. If there’s anything I can say I really liked about this episode, it shows us that the rest of Ponyville doesn’t see her as a nerd that surrounds herself with books. But a beautiful, celebrity-like figure that is so beyond public affairs and mortal comprehension that unheard of that she could go eat at a diner or that anyone’s really a good friend of hers.

Of course, I just love over analysing everything she specifically does.

Alright, so here’s what I pulled from today’s episode:

Sweetie Belle is finally learning how to use magic.
Applebloom is learning how to be a potions master.
Scootaloo is learning how to be an automobile repair mare.
A diagram of the mystery box from the season 4 premiere is in the opening scene.
Burger chains are now canon.
Twilight is a slob when eating burgers.
Horseshoe shaped fries are also a thing.
Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon were actually being NICE to the CMC for once.
When fillies and colts are unable to spend time with their favorite celebrities, they turn into walkers from the walking dead (because they were walking when they chased the CMC).
Plants can cough.
Spike is a master at making Nachos.
And the CMC can write in the journal.

And now, it’s time for my favorite event!

The Squeaky Belle drinking game!

For every time Sweetie Belle’s voice cracks in the episode, take a shot! (warning, you will drunk by the time the episode’s over).

Well, I can safely say that I may have written Season 4 off too early; these last five episodes have ranged from inoffensive to outstanding. Perhaps they got their worst ideas out of the way at the start? Smart plan. Anyway, I’d consider today’s episode to be the former. It was neat to see Sweetie Belle practicing magic (and actually make progress in it by episode’s end), and it’s damn sure about time that Twilight’s status was brought to attention. Granted, we still didn’t get to see her do anything princess-y, but like Fluttershy said in last week’s episode, “Baby steps, everypony.” So yeah, not one of my favorites this season, but not much negative to say, either. I’m just curious as to how long this stretch can last.

Hey everyone! Do you all know what time it’s gonna be tomorrow?

Nope, it’s not ADVENTURE time, but it’s………………

TWILIGHT TIME!!!!!!

Get it? because tomorrow’s episode is called “twilight time!”

Eh? Eh? Get it?

Thank you, thank you, you’re all too kind! I’ll be here all week!

(Yeah, that was pretty much the worst joke I ever did in my life, and I did a lot bad jokes in my time).

So I was thinking about MLP today and I think I realized a huge problem I have with DHX or Hasbro or maybe just the writers: They seem really afraid to canonize anything. Like anything that people want to know. I remember how they danced around AJ’s parents being dead. Okay fair enough, death isn’t exactly something that should be discussed in a positive kids show like this.

Then there’s something like Equestria Girls. Throughout that entire film, never once is the word ‘human’ uttered. Then there’s Vinyl Scratches eyes, yeah we saw them in ACW. But that was literally for a frame, and this is a show that had infamous animation errors in the first season. And then there’s the matter of whether or not Pinkie is an Apple or not. Instead of giving us the obvious no and then getting on with the Aesop anyway, again; refuse to make a choice. I want to bring up Starswirl the Bearded or how exactly Luna transformed into NM, but there are good chances that those will be addressed.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

Oh yeah and the concept of Scootaloo having parents is still up in the air. I mean Jesus, are they really having a hard time deciding on whether or not to pander to the sadists that want Scootaloo to be a homeless orphan? This is another one of the situations that make me want to be backstage when they write up episodes. Just to hear exactly why they’re not addressing anything.

Now, a lot of collective bronies have had their collective jimmies collectively rustled from pinkie’s behavior in the recent episode………….collectively. So here I am going to play defense.

Insensitivity is Pinkie’s major negative trait, much like Twilight’s OCD and Applejack’s stubbornness. Her hyper activity caused her to speak before she could think out the words. She wasn’t trying to purposefully hurt Fluttershy, but she was only trying to compliment her and it came out wrong or may have she may have said too much, it’s apart of her character, as shown in a friend in deed when she showed no respect for Cranky’s personal bubble, over a barrel when she unintentionally started a stampede, and may the best pet win when she was talking about how they were going to invite rainbow for the pet play date, but remembered that she didn’t have a pet.

TL:DR

It’s not OOC for Pinkie to be insensitive, it’s just a negative character trait she has as a result of her ADD personality.

I did see someone make the point that the mane six have all been placed into most of the episodes of this season thus far, whether they need to be or not, meaning Pinkie has had more screentime this season to display those traits. But problems only seems to happen when Pinkie isn’t the focus of an episode. I think that future episodes about her wont have these problems like “Pinkie Pride”; it’s how she acts as a side character that people have issues with, although she’s yet to detract from a story she’s not part of and instead its just little comic relief gags that are rubbing fans the wrong way.

I would like to point out though that as over-the-top as Pinkie was in “Filli Vanilli”, she was still as concerned for Fluttershy as the rest of her friends towards the end even if she wasn’t able to express and word it properly so she wasn’t totally inconsiderate. AKR’s tweet that Pinkie had no filter in the episode, regardless of whether or not it excuses her behaviour in anyone’s eyes, also suggests the writers are aware of this on some level. I think that, at worst, it’s just a bit of a rough patch. It’s nothing too serious at the moment, and a lot of the time the show’s writer have proved that they can learn from their mistakes so I don’t see all doom and gloom ahead for Pinkie’s character.

The first few episodes are generally considered to be relatively dull. If you want a better understanding of why we like it, perhaps you should try one that many of us consider to be good , like ’It’s About Time’ or ‘Sleepless in Ponyville’.

In a recent Comic Book Cast interview with Josh Keaton (voice of Spiderman, Hal Jordan, Ocelot ect.)
he said that he and his wife loved MLP, especially the music and Discord, and he wishes he could someday do a voice over for the show. Just thought i’d point out that, yes Spidey is a brony. :D

What I took from this week’s episode:

Pony A Capella is a thing.
Big Mac, Fluttershy and Rarity are some of the best singers in all of Equestria.
Pinkie REALLY needs to work on keeping her mouth shut.
Apparently, poison joke has the same effect every time it is applied.
Big Mac is slowly becoming a more important part of the cast.
I am going to be seeing a lot of three-ways between Rarity, Fluttershy and Mac.

The episode was really good, but I think Pinkie could have toned it down a bit. (Odd how she was being so brutal to the pony who shares her voice actor.)

I immediately connected with Fluttershy in this episode. I’ve also done things without realising others were watching or listening – not singing. but making a joke or putting on a funny voice for a moment or something like that which works just the same. I realise that nobody really sees any of it as a cause to make fun of me, far from it, but it can still be embarrassing even when it shouldn’t. I know EXACTLY how that feels! Amy Keating Rogers was spot on with a lot of emotions here. This is definitely the episode which I’ve related to the most. Aside from the fact that it was about singing, I could practically see myself in this episode :)

As soon as I saw the preview clip where Fluttershy’s friends are shocked to hear her sing, and she’s embarrassed that they did, I thought it was gonna sour the whole experience for me. I’m glad to say that it didn’t, but seriously, that plot device is so dumb. They’ve all sang many times before in front of each other and complete strangers (and please, don’t give me that “Rule of Musical” explanation again; I’m sick of it). That aside, I found nothing else offensive about this episode. I loved the callback to “Bridle Gossip”, I loved the song, and I loved the moral. This is why Amy Keating Rogers is my favorite writer; she just can’t write a bad episode. I never should’ve doubted her.

P.S. If they could stop shoehorning the entirety of the Mane Six into every episode and making Pinkie as obnoxious as possible (besides crawling on the wall like Spider-Man, which I thought was cool)… that’d be great.
