@Headphone Jack: Or he does it because he was spoiled as a child and no-one ever put him in his place. Blueblood may very well be a victim of cutiemark failure syndrom too-- his cutiemark is a compass rose, because his special talent was supposed to be leadership. He wouldn’t have a cutiemark like that if he wasn’t capable of some great things, but he’s likely never been given the opportunity or the push to do anything worthwhile with himself. He’s been kept in the palace where he doesn’t have to work, or even how to treat a lady with chivalry since everyone he knew growing up waited on him hand and foot.
Both are characters who are more complex under the surface than a half hour episode could do justice to. However, I think that Trixie definitely seems to get a free pass for her bad behavior in the fandom, while Blueblood is almost always treated like a total scumbag. He may have been rude and cold to Rarity, but Trixie dyed Rarity’s hair swamp green just because she didn’t like seeing another unicorn show off their talents.
Trixie is a wounded soul who has probably been made bitter through years of hardship, while Blueblood is someone who acts like an idiot because in his years of pampering he was never taught any better. Niehter’s behavior is justifaible, however both of them have potentially just as valid an explanation as to why they do not interact well with the ponies around them.
