** Rainbow Dash's total breakdown at Twilight [[spoiler: seemingly]] [[EasilyForgiven forgiving everybody with no grudge whatsoever]] was already bad enough. It gets even worse when she confesses to Soarin in her chapter that she really, ''really'' wanted Twilight to brand her and the others as complete idiots and make them move mountains to earn any amount of forgiveness for what they did.

** Spike total guilt about the rehearsal incident in ''Post Nuptials'' makes even more sense when you find out in ''Families'' about all of the FantasticRacism he endured in early childhood and how Twilight always defended him and was the only one who was always there and made him feel like he was special. No wonder why Spike views her as a mom.

Added DiffLines:

** A common complaint about the rift between the Humane 5 in Equestria Girls before Twilight mended it was how it was based on weak misunderstandings aimed at a specific person. ''Through the Mirror'' has the rift between the group even ''WORSE'' because Sunset engineered rumors that drove them apart (one of them got Fluttershy and Rainbow harrased by students, another nearly got Rarity expelled) and none of them can even look at the other girls now.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many of those who aren't fond of how the series gets DarkerAndEdgier treat ''Post Nuptials'' as a stand alone fic.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: While ''Post Nuptials'' was praised for it's [[{{WAFF}} idealistic tone]], it [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at darker themes]]. ''Metamorphosis'' showed plenty of darkness, but being a side story, didn't affect expectations for the main series. Come ''Families'', the Olive Branch story thread irked quite a few readers who had come into the story following the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin various family issues]] only to see most of them pushed aside in favor of what they saw as a trite and/or unrealistic conspiracy/thriller angle. in response to a comment about the plot thread's perceived weaknesses, Darth Link justified them with it just being a side plot and wanting to "keep the focus on the personal troubles", despite it being ''the entire second half of the story'', while the "personal troubles" were wrapped up [[spoiler:(or tied in to Olive Branch)]] midway through. Once it seem ''Direction'' was going to [[DarkerAndEdgier continue the trend]], many reader abandoned the series for [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks loosing the idealism that was the series' big draw]].

** Relatedly, given how much [[AdaptationalVillainy eviler and serious Discord was here]], that his defeat (in the middle of laughing at the Princesses efforts to stop him when they sicced the Elements of Harmony on him) so perfectly mirrors [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E2PrincessTwilightSparklePart2 how they defeated him in canon]] (down to Discord leaving behind something that would cause trouble 1000+ years later) is rather miraculous.
* JerkassWoobie: Queen Chrysalis, of all people, in "Metamorphosis".
* MagnumOpus: ''Post Nuptials'' is this for Darth Link, and widely held as such for the Canterlot Wedding FixFic [[FandomSpecificPlot genre]]. Rather than [[AccusationFic simply call the cast out for their actions]], it gives a [[{{Deconstruction}} thoughtful]], sympathetic perspective into every side [[BrokenBase of the issue]], and provides a [[{{WAFF}} optimistic and satisfying tone and reconciliation]] that captured the tone of the show.

* HilariousInHindsight: In this story, Discord is described as a creature so cruel and sadistic that [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E1TheReturnOfHarmonyPart1 his]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 actions]] shattered Fluttershy's worldview that showing others kindness is the key to bringing out the good in anyone. Then "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E11KeepCalmAndFlutterOn Keep Calm and Flutter On]]" aired and showed Fluttershy doing just that with Discord. Needless to say, it immediately became clear which season 3 episode Darth Link would be ignoring for this continuity.

* MalignantPlotTumor: The Olive Branch story thread in ''Families'' irked quite a few readers who had come into the story following the various [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin family issues]] only to see most of them pushed aside in favor of what they saw as a trite and/or unrealistic conspiracy/thriller angle.
