I've harassed a couple of threads into giving me the intel on running a pony stream on cytube and with their help I've managed to set it up properly.
We'll do a test stream on Sunday starting at 15:00 UTC and ending at 18:00 UTC and then maybe we decide when to rewatch Starlight episodes.
Trust me, this is gonna be a lot of fun, just a one time event as an excuse to watch glimmy

Not enough evidence. By your own logic, Celestia and Luna aren’t related. Also, saying that Starlight is related to the Sunny is on a equal level as saying she is related to Sprout because his mom is named Phyllis, and shares a name with Starlight’s plant.

Depends on which aspect of it she looks into. The Followers of the Apocalypse are positive, as are a few other things. I'd be fascinated to hear what she thought of Mr House who is best choice imo.

I can see pre-redemption Starlight going the Yes-Man route simply because she thinks she can do better. After she gets redeemed, all I can say she probably wouldn’t like Caesar’s Legion or House.
>I can't remember enough about it. She probably would wouldn't she.
It’s a story about coming together despite differences to defeat an overwhelming threat. I know in one of few origins, Shepard’s dead was killed by Turians in a war and you can talk to Garrus about it. Pre-redemption Starlight would lean more towards renegade, Post-Redemption Starlight leans more towards Paragon.

Yes, that sounds likely.
>After she gets redeemed, all I can say she probably wouldn’t like Caesar’s Legion or House.
Legion for sure, House isn't bad but I guess she might think he's too autocratic. I can't see her like NCR much either however. Probably would still side with them wouldn't she.

>ME
Ah that's it then, yeah she'd like that.

>Only DE game I’ve ever played is Human Revolution and I never finished it, so I wouldn’t know.
HR is flashy fun but a downgrade I think in terms of plot. Starlight would like the political and philosophical aspects of both I am sure.
Maybe even Invisible War.

You must've heard this one here and there, hell, you might even be one of them that wrote a post like this.
>Starlight should have stayed a villain.
So here, a question for anyone that got this idea or that might have liked it. How?

If you got the chance to rewrite the Season 5 finale and have Starlight stay as a recurring villain (or whatever you have planned for her) how would you go about it?
The idea is appealing at a first glance so I gave it a thought and realized that it's impossible. Sure, it's possible to create a cheap villain out of Starlight; an angry, vengeful pony that occasionally causes troubles to our beloved Mane 6, in a fashion similar to the Flim Flam brothers only more dangerous, maybe.
But, holy hell, is that a cheap way out. It would also de-rank Starlight from her position of a great villain. Just imagine, episode ends with Starlight defeated (again) and as she's retreating into the horizon she's yelling:
>"I'LL GET YOU NEXT TIME! TWILIGHT SPARKLEEEeeeeee..."
Like a joke.
Therefore, in order to maintain her infamous badge of "Best Villain" you'd need to keep the compelling political nature of her motives and not turn her into a lowly, angry bad guy.
On top of that you can't forget that her intentions were noble from the start, a society where there is no reason anyone would ever separate themselves from others and with that, everyone can stay together and live in harmony.
It is impossible to achieve this without scrapping the fantastic season opener. (to which I place a rule that disallows you fiddling with the opener, only the finale is open to a rewrite)

I've been trying to think of ideas but really she worked best as a one off villain, the more I think about it the more it seems hard to avoid cheapening her by having her "try again" after the S5 opening.

All I've got is she only pretends to go along with Twilight's friendship student stuff, and bides her time until she can either alicorn ascend herself/something similar to then just best Twilight in the present. All the while at every opportunity trying to counter Twilight's friendship stuff with her own equalism beliefs, seeing if she can shake Twilight's idealism when possible.
Her next attempt would have to be her last one, only statue would really result from such low betrayal if she failed to convince or best Twilight this time.

> after the S5 opening.
Meant to say ending.
But anyway, to avoid her just being a continual nuisance, like a meaner Flim/Flam, she can only really try one more time. I can't see Twilight extending mercy again to someone who has proven themselves to be so low and traitorous. Even if Twilight did, would her friends really all accept Starlight again, after causing problems for them all?
>>
>>38052216
Yeah, finding a continuation for Starlight as a villain is tricky. I do like the idea of Starlight picking and prodding Twilight's ideals. Sure, equalism is dead, but it doesn't mean Starlight can't express any more ideas of her own to contend Twilight.
That said, she does speak her mind when she finds the courage.

It would have been interesting if Starlight had outright rejected befriending Twilight's friends.
>Okay I'll be your student
>But let me pick my own friends
Twilight would be caught out, Starlight is on paper agreeing, and
>not letting her friendship student pick her own friends
Wouldn't look very good for Twilight either.

Or Starlight could also try and work on Twi's friends? Fluttershy was the most open to her, maybe now as a "goodie goodie", Starlight can really start pushing her next big utopia?
>Applejack, does it ever bug you that a unicorn can levitate all those apples off in one go? >Where is the fairness there?

The stream link will be posted half an hour before the start.

We'll watch S06E08 A Hearth's Warming Tail It's the third day of Orthodox Christmas so it kind of works, shut up.
...and two or three youtube videos to round it to half an hour - 15:00 UTC.
If it works out we'll figure out the date and time for the real thing et cetera et cetera
that part doesn't matter, simply, if you are interested, you only have to catch the stream.

So many criticisms against Starlight mention her lack of empathy, failure to learn from her mistakes, yada yada you've seen it all. It's as if they are all suffering from selective blindness, how do they not see it?
I mean look at her, look how hard she's trying to make amends.
Starlight was always a good pony and her mistakes never came from malice. Pinkie sees it.

Too many such criticisms are not really objective criticism so much as using the pretence of being analytical of Starlight to attack her for "ruining the show". When coming from a viewpoint where your mind is already made up, any positive points or noticing Starlight is trying to be better won't get a look in.
>Starlight was always a good pony and her mistakes never came from malice. Pinkie sees it.
Pinkie has a kind heart and I love her for that. Starlight made mistakes but was never truly evil. That's what made her such a great villain, but an even better pony undergoing redemption. How sad it is that too few people are willing to see that.

It might just take quite a bit longer for those people to change their minds. If they ever do that is, sadly. Here's hoping.

>hey, why that pic in particular?
I just like how long her mane and tail are, her expression of self satisfaction, and how nice her ears look and how long her legs are. It totals up to a very nice looking depiction of Starlight in my eyes. I love it.

However, I must admit

>Fanfiction I suppose could fill the gap
Writing or reading it? I kind of do want to write some pony fanfiction, I'm just worried about getting characterization right. I began making a list of reference episodes but I realize now it'd be better to just take detailed notes.

>>38028044
>Pony Twilight also had no connection to anyone in the human world when she arrived at CHS.
Don't be dense.

>>38063881
Writing it I suppose, I don't know how much material like that is out there. Haven't really looked.

>I'm just worried about getting characterization right. I began making a list of reference episodes but I realize now it'd be better to just take detailed notes.
That is kinda what keeps me from doing any. I do agree detailed notes seems to be the best way to keep track of character traits/behaviors.

I don't know how judgemental people are about it. "____ would never do ____" or say blank etc would be tedious. I'm pretty live and let live about it, its only fanfiction, sure some fanfiction can be legitimately great art or even superior to the source material, but most of the time I read it just to see an idea I like put into action. So long as someone has done it, I don't mind so much the execution.
>>
>>38063904
I mean, I suppose I don't know either. I haven't read any fanfiction since maybe late elementary school or early middle school. And it was mostly Percy Jackson smut. I guess when it comes to writing fanfiction (and drawing fan art, which I hope to also contribute at some point) it's all based on my personal conception. I'm worried about writing OOC but if I did and it were OOC to ME, I'd suppose I'd recognize that. I can just write the characters the way I would prefer to. And besides Applejack, I think I mostly have them figured out. The Mane 6 at least. But I'll probably just exclude Applejack entirely.

Figuring out Starlight will be more difficult because she's a bit more complex and shares a lot of similarities with both Sunset and Twilight. I think figuring out how to characterize those three in a way that doesn't overlap too much will be the hardest. But it at least gives me an excuse to rewatch Starlight's episodes. I've seen most of them only once at this point.

Both points seems fair and reasonable to me. From what I've seen in most places, the point of fanfiction isn't necessarily to entertain others so much as your own enjoyment of writing it. Obviously that doesn't mean you can't write to entertain, but you should at least be enjoying writing your fanfiction.

>But I'll probably just exclude Applejack entirely.
A little curious, what is it about her that you don't find understandable? Or do you just not like her character much?

>Figuring out Starlight will be more difficult ... I think figuring out how to characterize those three in a way that doesn't overlap too much will be the hardest.

That you recognize that such a distinction exists is a good start, they need their own separate voices.

>But it at least gives me an excuse to rewatch Starlight's episodes. I've seen most of them only once at this point.
Again from what I can gather it is stressed quite a bit that rewatching the source material several times to notice all the details helps quite lot. And it should be enjoyable anyway.

Looking forward to what you produce regardless.

I wouldn't stress it too much, as long as you can pick up on the defining characteristics you basically can't go wrong. It's fan fiction, no one is expecting a carbon copy of the original character to begin with and as a matter of fact I'd rather have the writer write what they have in mind rather than bend to the original content so much.
If you're interested in examples for short greens you should check out Grim's work if you haven't already, it's amazing:

Personally I really like "Sharing a Treat" it's steaming hot, "Public Display" is beyond adorable and "Hotdog Experience" is hilarious (picrel).
For any proper fanfics, well there's obviously fimfiction.
What's funny is that there's always the "Selected fanfics" post under the OP and of course when someone is interested in them it's not there.

>>38052096
>How?

Take her magic away. That's the first step.
It is, in my observation, the one of many things she has clung onto which is still relevant in the present world she is living in and is dependent upon throughout her daily life. Given that she grew up all "fucky" so to speak that lack of ethics compelled her to cope, to which she inevitably fell into the practice of magic as not only did it feed her pandering to the better parts of her past but it also served her in the long run.

Take away a pony's way of living and they will cope. Take away their way of coping, THAT is when they begin to crumble.

I suppose I'm going from developing Starlight into a more complex character to making her go completely insane, which sort of is the plan. Perhaps I'd pull something out of my ass detailing a bullshit situation where Starlight just up and loses her magic and so she begins to look into the dark arts for alternatives, this leading to Twilight and the gang having to stop her a second time, and perhaps this time for good. I would use that to serve as a heartbreaking moment for Twilight knowing that she failed in her mission to save her student and turn it into a lesson for her to learn as a leader.

Now that is dark. Very dark. But I like it. Starlight's search for new magical power sounds akin to Sombra's unusual dark horn, which depending on whether you acknowledge the comics or not could have been artifical due to dark magic.
Insane Starlight driven to darkness to try and cope with her fallen circumstances and failures, and Twilight knowing Starlight has become utterly lost and beyond saving and having to deal with that?
Very good idea. Nice one.

Sunset is certainly more headstrong. Twilight, anxious, yep, she questions her actions more. Starlight, nonchalant, yes. You seem to have a decent grasp of them in my opinion.

Yeah, I really like it. Actually I hate it and would never want to see Starlight go through it but I do like the idea show wise. I'll echo this anon here >>38068042 it's very dark.
There are some conditions the idea needs fulfilled. After losing her magic it doesn't have to be the end of it all. She could find some ponies to help her overcome it (or ponies could find her, this is Equestria after all) or she could just become apathetic to it all.
It doesn't have to be the ugliest possible direction of madness.
So it would have to go something along these lines:
>Starlight somehow loses her ability to manipulate magic.
>Twilight makes a critical error when trying to reform Starlight.
>Some event directs Starlight down the worst possible path.
>>
>>38068976
>Twilight makes a critical error when trying to reform Starlight.
Perhaps this idea is a bit too OOC for Twi, but what if she hoof-waves away Starlight losing magic?
"You don't need magic to make friends!" Focusing too much on her Princess of Friendship TM side and ignoring the fact that Starlight is a unicorn and one who focuses quite a lot on the primary aspect of what a unicorn is.
Starlight could try good naturedly to go along with this at first but it would grate on her pretty quickly that something she keenly feels the loss of and that makes her who she is is so quickly shoved aside so Twilight can feel good about reforming her.
>>
>>38068993
What if Twilight herself takes Starlight's magic away? As punishment? Nah.
What if Twilight had to do it to escape the time loop? But then she'd stick with wounded Starlight until she heals.
hmm, this is tricky. Again, I like the idea, it's just kind of difficult to implement in this world of kind ponies.

I wouldn't be too quick to nah that (I mean no offence), see, if the ponies are so blasé about turning villains to statues, removing Starlight's magic could be seen as a reasonable course of action.
Especially if it wasn't permeant, and Twilight could restore it. The resentment from Starlight that would fester, yeah, things would go dark very quickly.
>What if Twilight had to do it to escape the time loop? But then she'd stick with wounded Starlight until she heals.
Could have it so that both of them are incapacitated by returning from the time loop and Starlight is randomly scattered somewhere else perhaps.

>Again, I like the idea, it's just kind of difficult to implement in this world of kind ponies.
Definitely, strangely this sounds more like the sort of thing you might have in G1 than G4.
>>
>>38069104
>ponies are so blasé about turning villains to statues
They tend to trust each other and they definitely trust their princesses. So if a princess says this bad guy is so irredeemably evil they need banish them for a thousand years they'll trust their decision.
This is all on Twilight though. She's the only one to meet Starlight through their dance through time. So you need to figure out how to have Twilight consider placing cuffs on Starlight's magic as punishment and, well.. I don't see an obvious solution.
If this was Celestia you could have something. But the show really wants Twilight to be better than Celestia.

>Could have it so that both of them are incapacitated by returning from the time loop and Starlight is randomly scattered somewhere else perhaps.
Could work, could be interesting. There's still the issue of the crystal map (or whatever it's called) and it siccing the Mane team 6, maybe even preemptively, on Starlight if she tries anything funny.

Ok I concede that, you're right, it isn't Princess decision, its Twilight.
>So you need to figure out how to have Twilight consider placing cuffs on Starlight's magic as punishment and, well.. I don't see an obvious solution.
I suppose you're right, it doesn't seem very "Twilight" to even consider doing that, and even if she did, would she even know magic that can do that? Or have any means of doing so? Tricky.
>If this was Celestia you could have something.
Celestia true would surely know something on how to restrain Starlight. And would understand the tragic necessity if Starlight refuses to back down. But again, Celly isn't there, and Twilight is more idealistic.

>There's still the issue of the crystal map (or whatever it's called) and it siccing the Mane team 6, maybe even preemptively, on Starlight if she tries anything funny.
Wasn't the map busted after Starlight's messing around with it? I think she and Twilight actually fixed it together. Without Starlight to help her, maybe it would take Twi longer to do that. More time for Starlight to slink into the shadows.

>I'll shamefully admit that I haven't watched it.

When it comes to this thread, I have no clue what's going on. First of all, I've yet to get over the death of the previous one. Secondly this one is actually faster on average than the ones before it as it turns out (5 days 170 posts; usually it's 125 posts).
That said, there's a definite lack of our discussion friends. Why? I don't know, the premature death, glim spam, no sign of proper threads, all this for a week.
The opening post on this one is weak as well. Maybe should have used a simple cute glimmy and not a Macbeth reference. A smug Starlight on a throne is a bit unwelcoming.
I will say, this thread has been a jolly barrel of fun. With our insomnia Anon and his trusty phone.
There's also that green by our Octavia flagbearer friendo in the other thread. And there's the curious newfag. So all in all... it's pretty alright. Yeah, I like it.

>I've yet to get over the death of the previous one
Yeah, that was sad it just went under one night.
>>
I think the reason why I have trouble defining Starlight's character is because she has pretty consistent development, even going into the last two seasons. She changes quite a bit from beginning, middle, to end.

And rewatching these episodes makes me sad. I didn't realize just how much we potentially missed out on. Like I didn't realize how much of a great/natural leader she is. When she goes back to her old village they're all clamoring for her advice and input showing how much they still value her thoughts and opinions despite what she did to them. They probably would've liked her just as much as a leader if she didn't lie to them and take away their free will. I see now why anons thought she might get wings. She probably would have if becoming an alicorn was something that occured naturally rather than a gift given. She probably would've been a better choice for leader of Equestria than Twilight.

Still really wish we had gotten to see her interact with the M6 more too. There's a scene in No Second Prances where Fluttershy looks really sad when she comes back to the picnic and realizes Starlight left. And if Starlight had been introduced earlier maybe they could've actually done something with her connection to Luna, more than her just saying "I see a lot of myself in you".

I would explain, but I don't think I can. I just hate her. She's such an annoying hick bitch. Okay, maybe I can explain somewhat, but not in a very respectful way. Actually it's best I try not to explain at all.
>Sunset is certainly more headstrong. Twilight, anxious, yep, she questions her actions more. Starlight, nonchalant, yes.
I realized Sunset is probably gonna be the most difficult to charactrize. Especially in relation to the other two. But I still have at least one EqG special left to watch. It might be helpful if I can think of other non-MLP characters I can relate them to. I already thought of Twilight as being like Maka Albarn when I was a kid. I haven't seen Soul Eater since then but I think that should probably still hold up, in my head at least. Maybe I could relate Sunset to Ryuuko? Man, Fame and Misfortune is a shitty episode. Shitty episode with a good song. I don't know. I feel like I can really relate to Starlight but I can't think of anybody I can relate her to, not even the other two other characters I relate to most.

It does seem weird how she is completely and totally omitted however. Applejack's parents are dead and that fact is acknowledged in the show. Odd.

>Never seen it, but if those character relations help, that is good.
I'm not sure what shows you've seen but there's probably a few characters I could relate Twilight to. Like Pearl from Steven Universe kind of works in a way. Starlight shares some similarities with Spinel (one of the other characters I relate to the most) but the way they act after they're reformed is completely different. I mean, we only got one post-movie episode with Spinel. If her character had been handled better and we got to see her develop it could've been a lot like Starlight. As it stands though I guess Spinel is more like Pinkie.
>Oh, sorry about that.
It's alright. But I didn't another reminder how much I've been neglecting making music, I'm depressed enough about it as is. This whole month and past month has been horrible. Everything's been really terrible lately and my birthday's only like 48 hours away. I'm really dreading it. I wish Starlight and Trixie were real so I had someone to talk to, I feel like they'd be really good friends. I should be in Sunburst's place. God, I want to die.

I know its going to sound trite but I'll say it anyway, hopefully things will get better for you, if they've been bad recently. My fingers are crossed for you anyway. Maybe once things level off you can return with new energy to stuff like music making and really kick off a whole new era of it for yourself.

The Twi/Trixie parts are 100% on point in my opinion, but the Starlight
>probably wouldn't get on with flamboyant and animated personalities
Isn't Trixie both of those qualities? At least on surface anyway. Maybe its because Trixie tones down a little bit on that side of herself around Starlight/off the stage that Starlight can get over that aspect of her, making her as said, comfortable.

>spoiler
You're not alone in thinking that. I've often thought Twilight was much more suited to a wise advisor/Merlin type role than as the ruler herself. Starlight grew into being a leader.

>Still really wish we had gotten to see her interact with the M6 more too. There's a scene in No Second Prances where Fluttershy looks really sad when she comes back to the picnic and realizes Starlight left.

Rainbow Dash should have at least been able to show Starlight the Wonderbolts, and maybe Starlight's ability to fly with magic would have amazed RD/the Wonderbolts. It could have gone somewhere.

>And if Starlight had been introduced earlier maybe they could've actually done something with her connection to Luna, more than her just saying "I see a lot of myself in you".

The lack of interaction with Luna especially hurts. Luna feels undeveloped herself but having her interact with someone else who has undergone redemption and she could relate to on that would have been magical.

The other character I relate to the most is Asuka. And in a way they both share similarities with Starlight but all three of them act very different. The pony closest to Asuka is probably Trixie.
>spoiler
thank you! I will. That really means a lot.

>>38073326
>Isn't Trixie both of those qualities?
Now that you mention it, a bit, yeah. I did cross it out cause I realized it wasn't entirely accurate but I can't remember why. I was really just thinking about Pinkie Pie when I wrote it but yeah, it's probably wrong.
>I've often thought Twilight was much more suited to a wise advisor/Merlin type role than as the ruler herself.
Yeah I was just in a thread the maybe a day or two ago where I had a convo with an anon about how Twilight makes more sense as a teacher and how she probably should've opened a school of magic instead. Twilight's idolization of Celestia isn't based around her politics or leadership skills but rather her role in Twilight's life as a mentor and in general as a historic figure. It's the same reason she fangirls over Star Swirl the Bearded.
>and maybe Starlight's ability to fly with magic would have amazed RD/the Wonderbolts. It could have gone somewhere.
... I completely forgot about that. We really did miss out on A LOT. I feel like there's something Starlight would've connected with Rarity over too.
>The lack of interaction with Luna especially hurts.
I'm very thankful for what we did get, but seriously. I really wish we could've seen more of Celestia and Luna early on too. It's difficult to even get a firm grasp of what their characters would've been like before the new (?) writers decided to make them act like teenage girls. I'm also a huge fan of all the Starlight and Chrysalis art.

It wasn't the worst thing that could have happened to her, but it definitely could have been better. I'm more annoyed by the fact that the show was basically taken over by the school at the end.

It bothers me that you're kind of right about that. Not in a bad way, its just weird to think about.

>Twilight's idolization of Celestia isn't based around her politics or leadership skills but rather her role in Twilight's life as a mentor and in general as a historic figure. It's the same reason she fangirls over Star Swirl the Bearded.
Never really thought of that angle, now you mention it, that's a good observation.
A school of magic would have been amazing. Sweetie Belle could have enrolled.

>I feel like there's something Starlight would've connected with Rarity over too.
If she can connect with Maud over rocks, surely she can have enough of an interest in fashion and such to build bridges with Rarity.

>I really wish we could've seen more of Celestia and Luna early on too

Yes. Its interesting to note that Celestia is described in a least one book I have as:
>beautiful and kind as a fairytale queen, and she guides her beloved ponies wisely and well.
My phone camera is ass but pic related is what I am referring to.

Archetypal regal and beautiful queen of old. With a hint of mischief/fun. Shame we didn't see more.

I wasn't keen on the whole counselor thing either but if I had to pick a job for her it's actually a pretty good pick. A short work day and so many free days per year all while working for a prestigious school.

>>38078976
>Not in a bad way, its just weird to think about.
Yeah, I would love to be able to say Asuka is most similar to Starlight but her and Trixie act a lot more alike. It's weird, but in a fun way. Need to get back into drawing so I can make some "The Great and Powerful Asuka" art.

>A school of magic would have been amazing. Sweetie Belle could have enrolled.
Yeah, exactly. God I keep saying "yeah". A school of magic in Ponyville set up as a more accessible and welcoming alternative to Celestia's school in Canterlot would even be helpful for unicorns like Trixie.

>If she can connect with Maud over rocks, surely she can have enough of an interest in fashion and such to build bridges with Rarity.
First thing that came to my mind is that maybe Starlight would be into cosplay? And she would ask Rarity for help in making a costume. Maybe inadvertently exposing Rarity to new and fantastical fashion ideas? Which highlights another difference between Starlight and Twilight to me. Twilight is like theoretical. As far as geekiness goes, Twilight is more interested in fact than fiction and Starlight would most likely be more interested in fiction over fact. And Sunset might think both are "nerd shit". I can see Sunset maybe being into like YA romance novels? If anything. Not sure if that makes sense to anyone else. Maybe Sunset would be more into video games. Like horror or action games?

>My phone camera is ass
Thanks for sharing anyway. That Luna description is very interesting.
>Archetypal regal and beautiful queen of old. With a hint of mischief/fun.
Definitely fits her S1 characterization. She enjoyed having little things shake up the monotony of royal life. I just we had gotten more of a hint of what she actually liked. Thinking about it I can see her maybe being a bit like Toriel.

>spoiler
I LOVED the setup they had in S8/9. With the kind of one-sided rivalry between them. One of the few things I really liked from the last two seasons so I absolutely hated how it ended. I really wish they could've found a way for Chrysalis to give up and have a somewhat friendly relationship with Starlight without needing to transform or completely stop being a bitch.

Like I said do things for yourself not for anyone else and don't feel bad for doing so. Starting to do something is the hardest part, so just watch cute ponies if you want to, just to get your mind off of shitty thoughts. Start creating pony content and I bet you will think shitty thoughts less and less.

https://forms.gle/6zJeohNFejpj1mK59
It'll be the four episodes from Season 5. Since it's relatively short, I say, why not do the two Trixie eps one hour before the stream. Think of it as a pre-show.

I'd like to see that.

The Canterlot crowd do seem pretty snooty and full of themselves. Twi's would probably be much less stuffy and friendlier.

>Starlight would be into cosplay?
I can see it, and I can see Rarity getting into it. And Rainbow strangely.

>Twilight is more interested in fact than fiction and Starlight would most likely be more interested in fiction over fact. And Sunset might think both are "nerd shit". I can see Sunset maybe being into like YA romance novels?

Agree on both Twi and Starlight. Starlight's interest in the fiction side of it is highlighted by how she and Sunburst bond over that kinda of stuff.
Sunset pretends she isn't that nerdy but is really. I can see her being less obviously nerdy and into broader interests.

>Thanks for sharing anyway. That Luna description is very interesting.
No problem, and yes, it is, I wish we had seen more of her like that. I loved S1 Luna design so much.
Agreed on the Celly stuff too.

I just might. I'm really bad at making decisions. I was planning on finishing my Eva rewatch tonight and watching EoE but I might just rewatch FiM and EqG stuff instead. Might even rewatch ANG a third time. As much as I've always been into... media I've not really been part of a fandom before.
>Start creating pony content and I bet you will think shitty thoughts less and less.
Part of the reason I got back into MLP was for reference. I've been wanting to write a magical girl series and I thought FiM would give me some ideas for it. Instead now I mostly have ideas for pony fanworks, but I'm gonna try to work on both.

>>38082368
>Twi's would probably be much less stuffy and friendlier.
I was kind of hinting at the other creatures of Equestria until I realized I'm not sure if they'd be capable of even doing magic. Probably a very unpopular opinion but I did not completely hate the Young Six.
>And Rainbow strangely.
Totally in a tsun "I don't actually like this geek shit it just kinda looks cool" sort of way. And it's not strange considering Daring Do (though honestly I couldn't stand Daring Do, or The Wonderbolts. RD is my third favorite in the M6 but I hate almost every single one of her episodes).
>I can see her being less obviously nerdy and into broader interests.
Like... enviromentalism? Cooking? Not entirely sure where you're getting at. I still have some Sunset stuff I need to watch though.
>No problem, and yes, it is, I wish we had seen more of her like that.
The only issue I see is that "romantic" reminds me a little too much of Rarity and they already share the same VA so I interpreted "romantic and shy" as maybe Luna being kind of like... eh, that could be too much like Maud.
>Looks like I'm a little late to this, but a very happy birthday to you! I made this edit for you.

Wow, thank you!!!!!! The day has been a little better than I expected it to be so far, a little worse too. There's one person I really hope to hear from but I don't think I'm going to. It's alright though. Even if the day ends up kind of shit I can always get drunk and return to ponies at the end of the night. FiM got me through 2021. Hopefully creating will get me through 2022.

I didn't completely hate the Y6 either. Changelings can use magic right? Not sure about the others.

>Totally in a tsun "I don't actually like this geek shit it just kinda looks cool" sort of way.
For sure. I agree on the Daring Do/Wonderbolt stuff. It wasn't so bad earlier on, as with most things.

>Like... enviromentalism? Cooking? Not entirely sure where you're getting at. I still have some Sunset stuff I need to watch though.
Nerdy in the sense of being really into others things and geeking out over them, but not necessarily scholastic subjects like Twi, or pure geekstuff like Starlight. Like I don't know, motorbikes, music, that kind of thing.

>The only issue I see is that "romantic" reminds me a little too much of Rarity and they already share the same VA so I interpreted "romantic and shy" as maybe Luna being kind of like... eh, that could be too much like Maud.
Perhaps it meant more in a sense of being a romantic at heart, having dreamlike imaginings of things being better than they are, yearning for the ideal. Less lovey dovey and more like the poet living in their idyllic world of the mind. Very fitting for a pony in charge of dreams.
S1 Luna being like Maud would be amusing. I am reasonably sure I've even seen art of her behaving kind of emotionless and distant like her.

yeah, music makes a lot of sense. i just watched sunset's backstage pass with postcrush so idk why i didnt think of that. she would still be more chill about her interests than starlight or twilight would be.
> Less lovey dovey and more like the poet living in their idyllic world of the mind.
oh! thats actually what I meant. like Luna being kind of emo or even gothic and writing or speaking in poetry. but then i thought her being dramatic might be too much like Rarity. and then i thought her being kind of serious and solemn might be seen as being too similar to Maud, even if it is only in a shallow way.
>You're welcome! A shame your day hasn't been quite as great as it could have been, but here's hoping the year will be a good one, for you, and all of us.

The idea of relinquishing expectations so you avoid the feeling of disappointment is flawed, you become soulless; in order to avoid bad feelings you have to shut of all emotions, including good ones. If you think you can get the good without the bad you're dead wrong.
Like playing a game where you can't lose. What's the point of it and can you even call it a game anymore?
Bite through pain and reason away disappointment by hunting down the next goal and your mind will get stronger, people with iron wills are the ones that suffered the most. You can even take inspiration from Starlight as it turns out.

From my personal experience, Starlight seems like the type of person that had trouble forming connections and would cherish the few she has. If you’re trying to implying adultery, I don’t think she would take it well at all; she would be angry at first, then she would just be really, really, really sad. That’s just what I think, though. I’ve met a lot of interesting people on my time on the internet.
>>
>>38085230
I don't know. I don't think I'm interested in dating her in the first place.

I feel like she'd try to play it off at first and try to act like she's not bothered you might be initiating a breakup.

Shit man, I can't possibly help you here. Trust me, everyone here would do everything in their power they could to help you. I would personally climb you onto my shoulders and then we would all charge the problem together.
But the circumstances aren't there. Don't forget, at the end of "The Cutie Re-Mark" Starlight alone had to make the decision. Two in fact.

I can only apologise anon, but I'm usually either pleasantly surprised or just indifferent. Wouldn't say its shutting off all emotions, more of lowering standards and expectations to dampen the fall of being disappointed. Sure you still would want to keep some sort of long term direction and goal ahead, but I also plan and expect for shit to hit the fan, so when it does, which is most of the time, you're kind of already emotionally and mentally ready for it. Its been working for me for the past few years already anyways, end of the day everyone deals with their shite in your own way.

sounds horrible. I didn't mean to interfere to begin with but this idea of ceasing 'to care' worried me.

Between that and her introduction in The Cutie Map I feel like Starlight probably really likes music and singing.

>>38086044
I texted her. Unfortunately I didn't get a response but I think the fact that I did it at the very end of the night helped me to not feel as bad about it.
>Don't forget, at the end of "The Cutie Re-Mark" Starlight alone had to make the decision. Two in fact.
Yeah, I even made a joke once about how The Cutie Re-Mark is Glimmer trying to initiate and then rejecting Instrumentality. There's a lot of fan art I want to make now. NGE x MLP stuff. The Joker interview scene with Starlight as Arthur and Twilight as Murray. And I want to redraw this scene from Steven Universe: The Movie when Spinel tells Steven "Now that I know you, I want to kill you even more" with Starlight in Spinel's place and Twilight in Steven's.

Yeah, I guess it depends on what exactly you're giving up on. Would I say you should give up on yourself? No, of course not. Would I say you should give up on things that are either peripheral or out of your sphere of influence? Certainly. I cant speak for the other anon, but personally its more of the latter for me. But then again, it is easier said than done, that goes without saying..

To my shame, I haven't red the official chapter book for Starlight titled "My Little Pony: Starlight Glimmer and the Secret Suite"
So I checked it out and.... is alright. There are some things I liked that I will post here so you can decide if you want to read it.

>[...]
>“Great! See you in the throne room in fifteen minutes,” Twilight replied. “I’m going to make us some healthy snacks. It could be a looong night of learning!” She giggled happily and trotted back to the door with a renewed pep in her step.
>The Alicorn looked back over her shoulder. “I know I say it all the time, Starlight, but I just love having you here in the castle so much. Having friends near just makes everything better, doesn’t it?”
>“Yeah.” Starlight sighed with a smile. “So much better.”
>Starlight did mean what she said, but Twilight Sparkle’s genuine excitement for teaching Starlight Glimmer always threw her off. Since Starlight had been so untrustworthy herself in her past life, she was still learning to accept other ponies’ intentions.
>The old Starlight Glimmer (the one who’d controlled an entire town by stealing their cutie marks) would have been suspicious that all of this nice behavior was just in service of a plan to trick her. But it wasn’t.
>The princess truly wanted to help her. It was kind.
>[...]

>[...]
>Flopping onto the cozy four-poster bed and burrowing into the covers wasn’t enough to center her—the truth was that she wasn’t actually tired.
>All the hours that Starlight Glimmer had spent with Twilight staring at spells in books, trying to decipher meanings, had given her a sense of deep fatigue and mental fogginess.
>She was used to working by herself, and all of the studying would have wiped her out as it was, but the collaboration was extra draining.
>[...]

There's a big hole between seasons 5 and 6 and in this book Starlight is still meeting the castle so it's kind of interesting seeing her being untrustworthy and reclusive.
Also there's this tidbit for Twilight and her behavior in "No Second Prances":

>[...]
>"Of course I still want to study, create, and use magic, but in ways that help ponies have better friendship experiences so that everypony in Equestria knows what it’s like to be supported by others the way I have here in Ponyville!"
>"But I know I have to loosen my grip and stop trying to control so much, like I did when you tried to bring Trixie to my dinner party."
>"I think that’s what Princess Celestia and Princess Luna meant when they replied to my last letter about learning to let go of—”
>[...]
>>
>>38086983
>>"But I know I have to loosen my grip and stop trying to control so much, like I did when you tried to bring Trixie to my dinner party."
So the book takes place between S6 and 7? And
>>All the hours that Starlight Glimmer had spent with Twilight staring at spells in books, trying to decipher meanings, had given her a sense of deep fatigue and mental fogginess.
>>She was used to working by herself, and all of the studying would have wiped her out as it was, but the collaboration was extra draining.
is interesting.
Starlight is obviously well read and knowledgeable about magic. IIRC she can even read old ponish too but I never stopped to think that her method of studying would be less extensive than Twilight's, but it only makes sense. She doesn't seem like she'd be as organized.

ye. Starlight was always interested in magic but she saw it as means to an end, rather than just studying magic so you can study advanced magic so you can study ancient magic etc.
It makes sense Starlight would need a lot of knowledge before she could do cutiemark manipulation or that "death beam" she later used on Discord, still, Twilight beats her in raw information.
In the last thread I mentioned that Starlight is a lot more creative when it comes to problem solving and the way she thinks when it comes to magic and just in general.

that's fine.
>>
>>38087697
>Starlight was always interested in magic but she saw it as means to an end
that's the perfect way to put it. I didn't want to just say she relies heavily (or "too much") on magic. she uses magic to be efficient and get what she wants. it goes back to what i was saying about how Starlight is more into the practical application of magic while Twilight really appreciates magic in a historical and theoretical sense.
>In the last thread I mentioned that Starlight is a lot more creative when it comes to problem solving and the way she thinks when it comes to magic and just in general.
yeah she's not "by the book" like Twilight.

ah chrysalis. She's essentially your basic kids show villain. Big evil queen living in a big evil land with her small evil minions. She's so evil she's black.
Okay, jokes aside, outside of her hives insect design she wasn't particularly interesting to me. There's a lot to like but nothing to really get a handle on and mull over in your head. Very basic villain like I said.
Until that moment with Starlight and her subsequent creeping madness.

First, Starlight and Chrysalis' moment of ***
True to her subversive thinking, Starlight breaks the norms and realizes their cold hearts never knew honest warmth. Err, let's skip ahead this part is not my favorite.
Facing truth, Chrysalis is offered a choice. Well, there is no choice really, why would anyone not accept the frankly generous offer of liberty from the shackles they've endured for so long.
..aaand Chrysalis literally slaps it away.
Why?! Pondering the reason for this is a puzzle as there is no obvious answer. She'd stay in her hive, she'd probably stay a queen, her hive will not suffer again, there won't be a need for conflict that hurts all sides etc.
There's lots of reasons for why she should repent. So why didn't she? Is it personal pride? Selfish spite? Did she feel humiliated? Like she's the worst queen in the world for not figuring this out earlier, as if she doesn't care for her hive?
Or is it that she believes her hive is no longer her hive. And that even if she converts it would never be the same.

I don't get it, I think I'm gonna repost this in /bug/, see what happens, why not.
>>
>>38088110
>***
That was supposed to be 'redemption'...
>>
>>38088110
I'll be honest. I completely forgot about Chrysalis after S2. But S8 and 9 made me love her, so I'm glad she refused. Too often villain redemptions ruin what made the character so fun and likeable in the first place, Starlight is a rare exception.
>>
>>38088226
I like how Chrysalis blames it all on Starlight when it's Thorax that should be getting the flak. A traitor and an usurper yet it's Starlight that Chrysalis targets.
Again, I'm thinking it's because she felt utterly humiliated with that extended hoof from a lavender queen overthrower.
>>
>>38088296
It's hilarious that she completely blames Starlight because Starlight is the only one that cares. I'm sure neither Throax or the Mane 6 were that bothered or concerned about Chrysalis's ultimate fate.

Going through this board I've seen a lot of people that seem to dislike S6 through 8 for focusing so much on non-Mane 6 characters but if anything I just wanted to see more of Starlight, Maud, and Trixie. Not just because I prefer Starlight as a character but at that point in the series almost every episode focusing on one of the M6 had them written very OOC.
>>
Sometimes, I sit and think about what would happened if we saw more of the school. I can imagine some students (specifically Cozy) coming to talk and just spending time with student councilor Glimmer. It would make the betrayal all the more tragic—promising student and friend turned evil mastermind. I can only imagine the myriad of emotions that would overtake Glimmer.

I could never see myself in a romantic relationship with Starlight, but I could see me and her in a close friendship. I used to have a close friend almost exactly like Starlight and I could totally see me and her in the same way. She seems like the exact kind of person I could comfortably shoot the shit with on a Friday night while we pound back a few hard ciders playing some couch coop vidya. I could absolutely see me and her playing Halo 2 coop while we progressively get more drunk and begin idly talking politics and philosophy.

her mane is so playful, I wish it was a bit more active in some scenes

On a similar topic, she was depicted eating food quite a bit. Six times in fact I believe (7 if you count the ice cream from eqg)
Foods she devoured with gusto:
>Cupcakes (Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2; She bakes some with Pinkie)
>Popcorn (The Crystalling; You know the scene)
>Pancakes (A Royal Problem; Mornings with Sunbutt must be great)
>Falafel (A Road to Friendship; Singing makes a mare hungry)
>Pancakes again (A Road to Friendship; This time the pancakes weren't as sweet)
>Sandwich (Student Counsel; Picnic with Trixie)

The bugs never should have been redeemed in the first place. Sometimes a setting just needs on hand villains, they filled that role nicely.

Setting that aside, you're right, Chrysalis was a terrible ruler if she never worked that out, or worse, worked it out and went for the far less efficient option anyway.

yeah the bugfags can't seem to find a logical reason either. The thing is, if you manage to find an emotional reason for Chrysalis's behavior in the finale then it would make her out to be an irresponsible queen that gives her personal feelings higher priority over the hive's well-being.
Unrelated, the bugfags are so unpleasant to be around but peek into or prod at what's dear to them and they'll either turn on the defensive or, if they trust you, they'll be very excited to share their thing with you.

I loved the episode, it was fun in general and mean Twilight is fantastic. They twisted the kind Princess of Friendship into a manipulative narcissist, amazing.
The ending is weak I'll admit, but they did give us a good face melting and who doesn't love it when a great villain screams while their face melts.

I like the Starlight and Trixie episodes because they remind me of the early Stewie and Brian episode; particularly the one where they sing “Road to Rhode Island.
>>
>>38113118
Well Road to Rhode Island and Friendship Bound are both parodies of Morocco Bound, so it makes sense that they'd make you think of each other. But yeah, I also like the Starlight and Trixie episodes. I think they just go well together, and it's a pity how out of character Twilight feels during No Second Prances. I've also never been a big Family Guy fan, but those Stewie and Brian episodes were definitely the best, so it's unfortunate that they seem to have just dropped that whole thing.
>>

>Well Road to Rhode Island and Friendship Bound are both parodies of Morocco Bound
I looked it up, but couldn’t find anything. What is that?
>I think they just go well together, and it's a pity how out of character Twilight feels during No Second Prances.
Is it? Twilight has always been depicted as, I’m not sure if this is right word, controlling. I mean, most of the Mane Six are still suspicious of Discord until that one episode where Twilight spends the weekend inside. On top of that, her previous two interactions with Trixie were negative and there really isn’t any indication she’s changed. That’s just how I see it, though. My opinion/memories may have been influenced by fan-fiction, and I have a bad habit of automatically rationalizing stuff.
>>
>>38113418
Yeah I don't get why people say Twilight is OOC in No Second Prances either. She's generally untrusting. She probably SHOULDN'T be untrusting but she is and it's a pretty consistent thing.
>>
>>38113429
I’m pleased at least one persons agrees. Half the time, my opinions are so vastly different that I question my sanity.

>Yeah I don't get why people say Twilight is OOC in No Second Prances either. She's generally untrusting. She probably SHOULDN'T be untrusting but she is and it's a pretty consistent thing.

By that point in the show Twilight really should have known better. Writers, they never learn.
>>
>>38113418
>I looked it up, but couldn’t find anything. What is that?
A song from a very old movie called "Road to Morocco."

>Is it?
Maybe it's just me, but something about the way Twilight acts in that episode rubs me the wrong way.
>>
>>38113540
>Half the time, my opinions are so vastly different that I question my sanity.
I know how you feel, honestly.

>>38113554
In the later seasons every member of the Mane 6 is written OOC the majority of the time. Twilight specifically is an odd case though because most of the time it feels less like she's written OOC and more like she's regressed in some ways. That may not sound like a notable difference but I feel like the way Twilight acts in No Second Prances is different than how she acts in A Trivial Pursuit, I would consider that very OOC. Twilight being so untrusting of Trixie, Discord, and others that late in the show is odd (especially since they made her the "Princess of Friendship") but it's not unfounded and just feels like one of her many flaws. Like you're pissed not because its OOC for her but because she should know better. And honestly you could argue that her untrusting nature is justified after the S2 finale. If she weren't so untrusting then changelings could've eventually taken over all of Equestria.

The only thing that felt strange to me about how Twilight acted in No Second Prances was the scene with her trying to force friendships on Starlight. Starlight gets angry at her and runs away sad, but Twilight ignores that and tries to have her befriend Cranky. That was the only thing that felt a little OOC to me.
>>
>>38113836
Yeah that makes sense
>>
>>38113771
It's all Confalone's fault. He regressed every single character but Glimmy in that one episode. Trixie is once again an antagonistic bitch that wants to beat Twilight for whatever reason, Twi is distrustful as fuck and so on. That guy was always overrated as fuck. He cares more about shoehorning his retarded humor and vore fetish than writing a semi-decent story. It doesn't help that almost everyone on this goddamn board worships him like a god.

In what one episode? No Second Prances? I don't think any other character is regressed. The writing for Celestia is bad though.

That's funny. Looking it up, I like (or at least wasn't that bothered by) all his episodes except She Talks to Angel. I hated She Talks to Angel so much it overpowers any good he might've done imo.

You're right actually. It is odd considering the forced title, but not at all unreasonable or OOC. Just as you say, a flaw.

>Like you're pissed not because its OOC for her but because she should know better.
The writers should know Twilight better as well. Twilight would be right at first to be shocked or concerned that Starlight befriended Trixie, but shouldn't have held onto that attitude.

>And honestly you could argue that her untrusting nature is justified after the S2 finale. If she weren't so untrusting then changelings could've eventually taken over all of Equestria.
Its what makes her her isn't it, Twilight (written well) questions everything. Like the big egghead that she is.

>>38114011
>The writing for Celestia is bad though.
Celestia not doing anything or calling Twi out on it is what is especially bizarre. You would have thought she would have agency of her own rather that just go along with it.

That alone would've pretty much fixed the episode. I think the OOC and regressive writing near the end was a result of the constantly changing writer's room and the fact that they didn't want to mess with the formula and wouldn't be sure what to do if the characters had meaningfully developed. What's interesting is that it didn't take Twilight very long to be buddy buddy with Starlight but she treated Trixie that way when arguably what Starlight did was worse than anything Trixie did. One could reasonably ask, did Twilight only forgive and accept Starlight out of desperation? Or is it because Twilight could see herself in Starlight? Does Twilight take what Trixie did to them more personally?
>Its what makes her her isn't it, Twilight (written well) questions everything. Like the big egghead that she is.
>You're right actually. It is odd considering the forced title, but not at all unreasonable or OOC. Just as you say, a flaw.

And Twilight being so flawed is interesting. I think it was just so frustrating later on because of the forced title and because the show didn't acknowledge it as much as they should have. It was almost episodic. Twilight would apologize for acting out and then do the same thing a few episodes later. And Twilight was a figure of authority at that point so unlike Starlight and Sunset she had no one to check her behavior, there were no more letters to Celestia.

I don't remember where else I was going with all of this I kind of got lost. But yeah. People can argue that Twilight was written so untrusting just to prop up Starlight but Twilight is kind of just like that. She's obsessed with Celestia and just barely trusted Celestia knew what she was doing about wanting to bring Discord back. Starlight enslaved an entire town, her being more open to villain redemption only makes sense.

NTA but yes Glimmy would feel really bad about murdering because she's not a bad person she's very nice and loving and even tried to stop Fluttershy from being bullied because she hates bullying so much. Glimmie understands what it feels like to be abandoned and made to felt you're not special, of course she would feel bad. She is very anti-bullying (and anti-murder though her feelings may get the best of her).
