Not bad, I really like it. Its catchy; surprised to see the starting verse done by RD, she rarely leads in the songs.
Its got a nice feel to it, and the mane six's voices are all harmonizing well.

On that note, I think their attempts are set up to be *failures* here. Specifically, they're looking at what *they* like in a home and not at what Twilight misses about her old home. So I think they have their hearts in the right place, but will find that their efforts won't have the effect they thought it would, leaving them bewildered.

I think at the end they'll end up gathering up something from her old castle that survived or whatnot after having an epiphany.

I think I would've liked the verses for each character's part to be a bit longer to space out them doing the "and we'll make" part.

Well I suppose you could say that a mare's home is her castle.

I will admit the second "and we'll make" was a bit garbled together. the first one worked though. (I was expecting "make it just fine" not "divine" though. That's just me though)

what that mean exaclty?

is that they are going to say "the home is where the heart is" and that is how it ends?

I was just posting that song from the original MLP as a response to your prediction (basically its the "the home is where the heart is" idea), with the second line being clarifying that I absolutely despise that song.

Well, now I expect that Twilight's recent issues have nothing to do with the loss of Golden Oak, but with her trying to live up to her title of "Princess of Friendship".

Because that's her only personality trait now.

Seriously? The point of the scene is showing that Twilight isn't just trying to be helpful, she's doing all she can to be somewhere else. Her challenging Dash to a bunch of races doesn't even really have anything to do with helping her.
>> No. 36793925

Nope, I think it's pretty obvious and you've got it wrong. She'd rather hang out with her friends, even doing lots of things she doesn't need to just to not leave because she feels she has nowhere else to go. Her home was destroyed and she seems to be sleeping in it's charred remains, avoiding the castle.

Seems odd that all-of-a-sudden she's having a problem with it, when she showed absolutely no signs of negativity in the S4 finale, EQG2, or the S5 opener.
>> No. 36793927

On that note, I think a theme of this episode will be moving on emotionally. Twilight doesn't want to leave her friends to go "back home" because her old home is a wreck and aside from not being much of a home anymore, it's still a pretty big emotional scar to confront. So instead she's trying to spend as much time away from it to not have to confront it, but it's something she does need to overcome. I'm interested in seeing how Twilight eventually resolves this problem, and I'm happy to see Twilight isn't just whining about her tree but trying to avoid it or at least mentioning the problem to her friends; that leaves up some real strong emotional possibilities when the truth gets drawn out of her.

There was a lot of stuff going on in the finale, and she did seem really pissed when it was destroyed. EQG2 and the opener of S5 seem fairly recent, like maybe within a few days, and as I've stated, this is something she seems to be trying to hide rather than cry to her friends about, so bottling it up when they're in business mode in the castle seems fine.

Bitch please, I have tons of personality traits. I hate most of modern gaming, I love it when shitty people get their come-uppance, I get annoyed at pricks with superiority complexes because of their cowardice, I worship Freedom like a citizen of Columbia minus the racism, and I am currently going through an existential crisis over the fact that I just realized that I'm 20 years old and have done precisely fucking nothing with my life.

Well, so twilight is so unwilling to confront her new role/house/loss of house that she pretty much is running herself ragged everywhere else just to have an excuse.

Not surprising for the episode, but not a very entertaining clip; Vital no doubt for the episode, but it requires some follow up stuff.


Just like how in the S3 finale she was flying super well.
And how in EQG she seemed to have accepted being a princess.
And how PTS had her deal with being a princess.

The show's not very consistent on having her lessons stick.


100% doubt it.


Completely uncalled for; that IS her one trait. She lost everything else she had at the end of S2.


That being said, I don't think that's why she's hanging out with the others right now. I more think its just emotional loss due to her tree being gone.

for the twilight issue, i dont know, they are pulling this "oh, my old house is gone, i dont want to live in this playset"
but at the end the moral is, well twilight, you now live in this new playset, so better you start liking it, you will kill yourself.

This supports my earlier speculation that the rest of the mane six move in to Twilight Sparkle's castle at the end of this story arc.

Well, I'm not going to say it's definitely going to happen, but I nevertheless reserve the right to say, "I totally called it" if it happens, wholly in the name of self-serving hypocrisy, of course.

I am certain to the point where I would pretty much bet money it will not happen.

That does make me wonder though: Will they have another big Toy item this season besides Celestia's Play castle?

Cutie mark magic didn't appear at all so far, making me think it was more or less just meant as "Rainbow power toys 2.0" after all, and they gotta shill SOMETHING.

I'm not sure how "Main6 now live in the castle" would somehow boost toy sales by a "crazy' amount, seeing as "main6 now live in the castle" is a rather tiny, insignificant detail compared to the other "BUY OUR TOYS" stunts they've pulled.

with what toys exactly? There wouldn't be any new toys, its just them moving to a preexisting toy.
>> No. 36793950
is just a reminder that twilight castle playset exist. and how it is so great and magnificent

just like how cadence appeared inmediatly when season 3 started. because is the reminder that she exist so you buy it, because she is so great and magnificent that she save the world

on any case, they at the season finale will stop featuring twilight castle to much, and they will start showing up canterlot for the next playset

It would ramp up the importance of the castle they already have. Kids that weren't interested in playsets before would now have to get this playset because it's the most important playset ever manufactured.

Yeah, toys are definitely a motive.

However, the main reason why I'm speculating it's happening (aside from the clips supporting the episode seems to be moving in that direction) is because it wouldn't really change anything (the Castle's smack dab in the middle of Ponyville and Twilight's friends can do whatever they were always doing there anyway) while introducing an interesting hunk of canon continuity (suddenly, they're roomies!).

Granted, if it goes this way, I could draw a pretty clear line to the end of Season 5 that everypony ends up a princess, or at least a Lady-In-Waiting or Duchess or something since, after all, they already live in a magic friendship castle.

It already seems important enough, seeing as it was a huge part of the S4 finale and the S5 opener, and they're flaunting it everywhere they possibly can, even in the goddamn intro.

If kids weren't interested in it already, I don't think making the other 5 "move" into it will suddenly make them interested in it.

Also seems like a really dumb and random way to "ramp up the importance" of it.

I bet the mane six shippers are probably squealling over the main six moving into twilight's castle right now.

But the thing is about this castle is, its *old* by now! that things from Season 4, they're going to be rolling out new stuff! new playsets, new toys. they don't want to waste time advertising an old toyset, they're going to stop production on those, mark them down, and start adverting a new thing.

its how they always do it with playsets.


Going to be honest, AJ and Fluttershy probably have the least shipping potential of the mane six :/

The canterlot one will be out before christmas; its not THAT far off. They have prototypes that are more or less the finished product, it will probably be out in the fall.

Though, that one will be pushed by Episode 100. I'm expecting something ELSE, like a new mane six toy line or something ala the rainbow power things or the Crystal toy line.

Any questions?

just because they have prototypes and stuff that doesnt mean it will be out on summer or anything, it maybe could come out on autum.

for something they have time programing.
And if they dont get an even more expensive toy out at christmas compared to the canterlot playset, then they are going to put the canterlot playset for christmas seasons.

the point is getting the most expensive toys out at that time period.
it have nothing to do with "the episode 100" or that stuff.

the episode 100 is pandering to the bronies fans, not to the kids.

on that case, they could be visisting canterlot alot more during this season, and then having the finale there, the point is showing it off as much as possible. so kids reconice the place and they have it in mind.

and we have episode 9 taking place at celestia's castle, where there will be a big happy dance... enough teaming with the playset?
