So, i was thinking what could be a problem with me and the show lately.

why im more exceptical than ever, even when there is no information to make me think something is going wrong, or something bad is comming.

So i have being watching others shows in the mean while. Steven Universe and Gravity falls.

and i think maybe a reason. Is that ponies give me that feeling that they are doing stuff just to fit a toy line, while this other shows make me wonder what are they going to do or going for. and i dont get that feeling of them making it for an uninspired reason.

It is unfair to compare FIM to others shows because at the end FIM is just a commercial tool and nothing else?

and how can i get the feel that FIM is really trying to go for something....while EqG doesnt help....

but at least doing it backwards is easier.

sure, everything on the universe is done just to sell stuff.

But when i see Steven getting his mothers room is because they have a plan or just want to show it, not because we need a playset.

While i see the giant crystal castle of twilight, i know is there just because you need a giant playset, the same to why twilight is a princess, just because the toys.

To me it start looking like the Merch drive the show, instead of the other way around, and i could try to give the benefit of the doubt, but Equestria Girls pretty much showed me that there is no priority on the show over plastic.

maybe on steven universe and gravity falls they will start changing stuff if they want to sell some toys... (even that is unprobable because most of the toys are done under a license instead of being the studios prodicing them)
>> No. 36792657
and i dont want to sound anti products....
but when is more important than the story or the message...
is harder to get exited about stuff when i know the only reason it exist is because toys and nothing else.

The main difference is MLP was conceived as a toy brand from the start, while Steven Universe began life as a creator-driven TV concept.

The "spreads harmony throughout the land" part is another thing, not just her name; that's more or less Twilight's entire purpose.

The writers actually have said that the drafts of the scripts get looked at by people from the network too, and they'll send notes back like Hasbro does.

The artists are at the DHX Vancouver studio, the writers are at Hasbro Studios in California, Hasbro finances and oversees the entire thing.

It may mean that the idea did not original come from the show's creative team, but from some other part of Hasbro.

I can't say I care too much. At least now any potentially new Dragon characters might have a personality outside of jerk/aggressive beast..

>she intended him to be [...] a dark dreaded force rather than a direct villain
See, that's kinda what I'm saying. He WAS that. The dark, dreaded force of corruption. Or rather, what corruption can do to someone with power & influence (like, say, a Princess of Magic).
If that was the specific feature of Sauron that Meghan was trying to capture, I'd say she did an alright job. Sauron himself was an Ainur spirit whom Melkor had twisted, after all. If she was trying to make a hyper-competent master-manipulator with warlike aspirations, not so much.

I figured it was the pony of shadows and that it was real. Honestly, the pony of shadows seems logical; cast off negative emotions isn't an uncommon trope, and if one were to headcanon the nightmare force being luna's subconscious dark thoughts rather than a true outside force it would make even more sense.

you think the show would pull off some kind of "fusion of the mane 6"? thing?

it could be a Deux ex machina with friendship and stuff, you know, to push that they need everybody.

and they can be a giant new princess alicorn toy. resembling the alicorn thing of RR or something like that.

So what would happen, if say- Somebody decided to take a hacksaw to a unicorns horn and cut it off?

Would the unicorn live? Would said unicorn still be able to do magic?

If unicorn horns grow throughout life, that could explain why Celestia's is longer than anypony else's; it's had centuries to get that way.

However, I'm guessing that Chrysalis's crooked horn thingy grows at the tip - - or doesn't grow or repair itself in adult life, like insect wings. Maybe her "minions" are early instars, like baby cockroaches.

Perhaps it magically regenerates rather than Organically growing?

Like if it broke off a magical green glow would slowly work itself up from where it was cut off as the horn was more or less redrawn (holes and all) into existence?

They are magical creatures after all.
>> No. 36791985
It probably wouldn't grow back, just like a pegasus's wings probably wouldn't grow back if they were hacked off.

Considering the type of show, hopefully we'll never have a canon confirmation of either.

Does anybody else wish to see something made of the whole "Sombra's horn survived" thing? Perhaps some sort of return at the most or like a cult trying to bring him back to life with it or something?

Flash Sentry is not a character, he is an object to be obtained by the now Princess Twilight Sparkle. He is an accesory, a prize for her to win, like the damsels in distress from the past, in this reconstruction of the hero's tale that is Equestria Girls, Flash Sentry is a compliment to Twilight Sparkle: The pony version is a soldier, his inherent quality as such is his physical strength that constracts with Twilight's love for books; Human Flash on the other hand is a rocker who doesn't like to follow conventional rules (shown by his ripped shirt and how he sits on the cafeteria), a bad boy with a gold heart that complements Twilight in the human world, but that's all assumptions from the fans given by clear visual symbols and not personal actions (speaking of visual symbols, Flash Sentry's color pallette compliments Twilight's pretty well).

Flash Sentry has to be saved by Twilight and her reward is a dance with him and almost getting a kiss, but we don't know anything about his desires other than reflecting those of Twilight. What do I mean with this? Well all his conscious actions had to do in one way or another with Twilight so everything about him revolves around Twilight, take her out of the scene and he is nothing, not even an object because his purpose is to be Twilight's price in Equestria Girls. At this exact moment, Flash Sentry is nothing outside Twilight Sparkle.

How do we fix him? It's rather difficult. First you need to push into the background the other 5 main characters so that you can build him and his relationships with beings outside AND before Twilight, Sunset Shimmer. This is why replacing him wouldn't work, because the new love interest would face the exact same problems of not being able to grow under the 6-7 protagonists unless he is given the space to do so. This opens the door for the second reason, the fandom.
