[[WMG: Blueblood is Luna's son.]]
He's Celestia's nephew and she doesn't have any other siblings. He acts like a jerk because she gave birth to him and raised him when she was in her Nightmare Moon incarnation and therefore she encouraged his jerkassiness. Luna is very embarrassed by him now and there's a tacit agreement among the ponies not to talk about it.

[[WMG:Strawberry Sunrise has had a lot of dental work done...]]

Because she's obviously an expy of Julia Child, who was a member of the OSS during WorldWarTwo. So Mulia was an agent of the Office of Strategic Stallions, which was led by Wild Bull Donovan. After the war, it became the Canterlot Intelligence Agency, and Mulia became a chef.

[[WMG: Zesty Gourmand has a sensory disorder that leaves her with [[SuperSenses hyper-sensitive taste buds]].]]
This is why she'll only eat food that other ponies would find bland; to her, it tastes normal while the flavor of normal food is overwhelming. And it would have had to develop later on somehow, rather than her being born with it, in order to explain how she was able to become such an influential food critic to begin with with such a limited acceptable palette. An {{Inverted}} SenseLossSadness left her bitter that she was no longer able to enjoy foods that other ponies still could without trouble, so she leveraged her power as a food critic to shift every restaurant [[ItsAllAboutMe into something she could eat at without trouble, regardless of what other ponies thought.]] All the talk about subtle-tasting foods being an art form was just a cover story because she's self-conscious about her condition and could be afraid of losing her job over it(why would anyone listen to a food critic with a malfunctioning sense of taste?), while having the additional perk of having the food come across as high-class and elite despite the lack of flavor because of the supposed difficulty of making it, allowing it to still remain somewhat acceptable to the high-society Canterlot ponies and allowing her to keep her reputation as a critic despite her unappealing taste in food. This also explains why she would rather shun the now-popular Tasty Treat than try the food--if she's really concerned about her job and reputation, then that was a lose-lose-lose situation: either her reputation takes a hit from her stubbornness; she tries the food and can't hide her discomfort, outing her condition and therefore her unsuitability as a reliable food critic; or she tries the food and manages to fake a good reaction for her reputation's sake, but would then be expected to try similarly-flavorful restaurants and give them similar judgments, dooming her to aggravate her condition to keep her job. Option A just struck her as the lesser evil--if nothing else, she went out with a little bit more dignity than Option B without the recurring discomfort of Option C.

Admittedly, this theory doesn't explain why she demanded that every other aspect of the restaurants(decor, attire, presentation, etc) be identical instead of just the food.

[[WMG: The Hearth's Warming Eve play is a BroadStrokes retelling of real events.]]
Generally speaking, the sequence of events it shows is right and the characters existed with roughly the same personalities they have in the play, but things have generally been simplified over time. In reality, the leaders would have been less unreasonable than portrayed, especially Puddinghead: she was in all likelihood still... eccentric, but not the total loon of the play, otherwise she would never have managed to become the leader of a nation. The journeys were in all likelihood full-scale migrations rather than two-pony expeditions. Finally, the ending of the actual event was in all likelihood nowhere as neat as in the play -- there would still have been the hardships of building a new nation from scratch, and there were likely a lot of holdouts from the old society who didnít want to give up power [[FantasticRacism or mingle with the other tribes]]. The reason this didnít show up in the play would be because a) it would overly complicate things and get in the way of the moral -- history textbooks serve fine for the actual version -- and b) the story itself has gotten a bit blurred and oversimplified over a thousand plus years of telling and retelling.

** According to ''Literature/TheJournalOfTheTwoSisters'', they were both mares, and the characters in the actual episode also seemed to conceptualize them as such. However, ''Literature/PrincessCelestiaAndTheSummerOfRoyalWaves'' has Clover as a stallion. Her being a mare seems like the likeliest option at the moment.



He test it on himself, but it worked too well and he become a she more time than expected. That make the female starswirl toy make a little sense.

* According to ''The Journal of the Two Sisters'' (which has conflicted with show canon on occasion, so take this with a grain of salt), Commander Hurricane was a stallion, whereas the other five founders were mares.

mares. Then again, ''Literature/PrincessCelestiaAndTheSummerOfRoyalWaves'' also has Clover as a guy.

Some [[Website/{{Cracked}} Cracked.com]] reader on the [=FiM=] staff will decide that the multiple reference name is too good to pass up, [[WordOfSaintPaul with]] or [[BrokenBase without]] permission from Amy Keating Rogers. [[Website/SomethingAwful It]] [[OneOfUs happened]] with ''{{Pokemon}}'', why not MLP? Further support for this theory is that Soarin' is ''sooooo'' gorgeous/man-pretty, and his hairstyle's similar to Soren Bowie's, but slightly [[AnimeHair bigger]], and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]].

to:

* So is this guess confirmed yet? In "On Your Marks" during the Cutie Mark Crusaders' search for problems to solve, we see her very clearly being a central figure, standing in an office while other ponies walk up to her with documents that she reviews and signs before they leave.
* On the other hoof, she's probably not the ''only'' figure in Ponyville's government. Along with the other ponies mentioned in the example above from the show itself, the comics also give her a council and a small army of bureaucrats she has to manage.




to:

* Call this one jossed. Hasbro is using the "Mayor Mare" name for its licenses.
