Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps it's similar to rotation, except they rotate the sun and moon instead of the Earth? When Luna needs to raise the moon, Celestia sets the sun to the other side of the globe, and Luna does the same when Celestia must raise the sun.


Added DiffLines:

** If we want to take Nightmare Moon's banishment and Tirek being sent to hell into consideration, it seems the only consequence is a form of exile.

* How did Equestria avoid a massive villain pile up. I mean given what we know about Nightmare Moon and Discord we have a few choices. They knew him BEFORE coming to Equestria or this whole pillar thing was shortly there after and the Sirens, Tirek and Sombra were packed in before the Nightmare incident or you know just like now Equestria was a bloody mess for a few years only it's protectors all had to take the sacrifice win because they didn't have the benefit of plot armor.

to:

* The show suggests Celestia doesn't particularly enjoy all the adoration from her subjects because it results in them fearing her (to an extent) and forces her to fake happiness for their sake, even when she feels awful. Luna was jealous because she felt unloved and wanted the adoration her sister had. My question: Why didn't Celestia ever tell Luna this before she was forced to exile her for a millennium? Unless she somehow never picked up on Luna's feelings (which is hard to believe), why didn't she at some point tell Luna being "perfect" sucks? You could argue Luna wouldn't believe her, but at least she would've tried.

** Course real alligators are born with teeth, so the question remains why Gummy has spent so long without them (and why he has the tongue of a lizard, he is clearly no normal alligator).



** It is indicated that ponies can change their names to better suit their marks. Further, what the mark means and what it looks like may not be obvious (ergo knowing what your mark will approximately look like may not help you know what your special talent is).




to:

** Friendship lessons are indeed still part of the series but aren't recorded the way they were before. The journal still exists, as we learn in season 7, but it had seen better days thanks to how rough the ponies were with it and presumably due to it being in the Golden Oak library when Tirek destroyed it.

***They got asked to step in as Princesses at the time of unification of Equestria by the founders [Puddinghead, Princess Platinum and Commander Hurricane] It's described in the Journal of the Two Sisters.




to:

**It is explained in the Journal of the Two Sisters, apparently near the time of the unification of Equestria it took ten unicorns to get the sun moving and those ten would deplete their magic permanently. once ALL unicorns including Starswirl the Bearded were out of action they thought of asking the Alicorn there to try, she got her cutie mark, got empowered by it and repowered all the unicorns there... It also explain that alicorn get their cutie mark quite later in life than normal ponies so being an adult blank flank is not strange.

** It's not clear how much contact ponies and dragons normally have but it seems to be fairly limited. Enough that even Twilight, the Smart One, didn't head off in DragonQuest with the intention of dealing with the dragon as a sentient being that could be reasoned with. She brought Fluttershy specifically because Fluttershy has a connection to ''animals''. So its possible that either it IS racism/specism on the part of the ponies to mistreat Spike because they simply don't know better or perhaps Spike is special in some way that isn't clearly defined. That same thing that makes Scooby Doo different, it's not that dogs talk in Scooby Doo. They don't and it's never brought up.

** The fact that is allowed in Equestria to let child roam free doesn't mean it should be done:in TheLastRoundup Twilight was gone for 2-3 days(depending if a night passed before they were hired,but one surely passed between Applejack'promise and breakfast);at least the CMC have Others family members when their sisters are away(okay,except Scootaloo,but I blame the writers for not letting us know something about her).And anyway,how do you think he feels about being costantly left behind by the only ponies he know well(and don't try to tell me about Snips and Snails: we have seen them talking once and they annoyed him like the rest of us)and that he kept helping,by the way.About Twilight's birthday there is no proof that the drink were spiked:her dance is actually fairly realistic for someone who probably had never danced before(I'm not ashamed to admit I wouldn't do better) and they didn't need alchol to ruin the [[TheBestNightEver last party]].Also considering that in DragonQuest he had to glue himself to a photo of the birthday to pretend to be here,I'd say they didn't do one just for them.And last,I don't care if she can take out him with magic:leaving a kid fall in cold water is not a funny thing:it's not like pushing someone in a pool in a hot summer day;and also she apparently let him in long enough to get sick.

*** We do find out that he plays Ogres & Oubliettes with Big Mac, so that's at least one friend he does things with that don't involve the Mane Six.

* What happened the Journal that Twilight and her friends were recording their friendship lessons in? I don't think it appears or is mentioned after the season four finale. Does the show even do friendship lessons anymore?
