* AssPull: If you didn't follow the foreshadowing, [[spoiler: having Discorded Whooves saving both Scootaloo and Lightning Blitz]] would be this.[[spoiler: It '''''is''''' Discorded Whooves after all...]]
* BrokenBase: Oh boy...many fans get sick and tired of the entire StatusQuoIsGod aspect of whenever something good happens to Scootaloo, it always goes back to having something ''horrible'' happen to her. Also the DiscordedWhooves crossovers don't seem to help as well, and '''Let's not even get STARTED''' with the Miss Twilight Sparkle crossovers (Especially with the recent posts implying that Scootaloo sees '''her''' as a way better mother (since you know, an unstable, suicidal mare who fell for Dissy due to AllGirlsWantBadBoys comes to play).[[spoiler: Huge points have recently garnered when it was revealed by Applebloom that Applejack has random sex with other ponies and decides she'll do nothing about it since it "makes her happy".]]
* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[{{Jerkass}} Upper Crust]] saying [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37298093164/eye-color-fixed Scootaloo would be better off dead]], and THEN saying [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37369351982 that Sandy is an awful mother to Scootaloo]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not prompting]] [[MamaBear Sandy]] to hit her RageBreakingPoint and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not and give the]] {{Jerkass}} a ShutUpHannibal speech!
** Since they ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36648073779 admitted]]'' that they ''knew'' Scootaloo might be suffering from [[{{UsefulNotes/Depression}} post partum depression]], many fans feel that their KickTheDog moment to her, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36569580007 taking her son, who she OBVIOUSLY loved VERY dearly]], ''right out of her hooves'', [[MoodWhiplash ruining what had been a]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heart-meltingly loving moment]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36446803239/mod-welp-babies-born-blogs-over-everyone-pack a few seconds ago]], combined with their general [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical attitude towards the young mother]], it crosses even ''more'' lines.
** Indeed, ''[[ZeroPercentApprovalRating NEARLY EVERYONE IN THE FANDOM]]'' '''''DESPISES THEM''''' for that (save for a few who view them with a bit more sympathy), and feels they didn't just ''cross'' the MoralEventHorizon, they '''''catapulted themselves over it!'''''
*** Examples of that include things like [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36569580007 showing disdain for her small-town background]], despite her being Lightning Blitz's ''birth mother'', and calling her a "hooligan" ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37298093164/eye-color-fixed along with the "better off dead comment"]]'' despite the fact that as [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37369351982 Sandy lampshades]] Scootaloo is the ''birth mother'', and isn't trying to put Lightning in danger (and shows disdain towards the fact that Sandy shows concern for Scootaloo even though she's not Sandy's biological daughter, despite the fact that ''they wanted to adopt Lightning!''), and ''then'' she has the nerve to '''''act indignant''''' when, in a dose of LaserGuidedKarma, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not Sandy denies them Lightning]], after they had basically said that ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36569580007 they would do the same thing to Scootaloo]]! Truly they are despicable!''
** They later get some CharacterDevelopment and a deeper look into their actions subverts this.
** See MoralEventHorizon for [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/66390041055/sandys-backstory-part-3-part-1-part-2-part-3 these two]].
** For some, Sam Rose putting that Applejack has casual sex with ponies and Applebloom not doing '''anything''' about it because 'it makes her happy'.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The constant chain of mistreatment and dangers gets tiresome after a while.
* InNameOnly: A rare case, even for this tumblr. While ''some characters'' are like their show counterparts, there is a huge complication with some characters, such as the instance of [[spoiler: Applejack having 'casual sex' with several colts]], and while fan interpretations can be as they be, some of these aspects do put a bad taste in reader's mouths...
* JerkassWoobie: Rain Catcher was a jerk for getting Scootaloo pregnant and leaving her, but after learning of his [[FreudianExcuse issues]], like his [[DisappearedDad problems with]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53119862734/apparently-its-fathers-day-for-some-of-you father figures]], and [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/45712936527 his]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/52354785711/i-didnt-even-remember-the-bet-all-i-could-think being unsure if he did]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53965583987/um-insert-a-mental-flash-of-every-rainloo care for Scootaloo]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53974488866 or not himself]] it's tough not to feel a ''little'' bad for him.
** He later gets some CharacterDevelopment and finally owns up to his mistakes, apologizing to Scootaloo.
** Also, some fans attribute this to [[JerkAss Jet Set and Upper Crust]] (partly due to a DracoInLeatherPants effect perhaps) because of the [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/35808403333 reveal]] that [[LawOfInverseFertility they can't have a child easily]], and Upper Crust's genuine sorrow [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not here]] (the fact that WordOfGod says they ''[[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53619960385/i-got-their-explanation-for-why-they-chose-sandys-ad do]]'' [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53638994448/i-think-anon-needs-to-realize-that-its-not-like-uc-and care]] for Lightning somewhat probably helps).
* JumpingTheShark: [[spoiler: Some fans find the revelation that Applejack has sex with random colts and Applebloom deciding to '''not do anything about it''' because it 'makes her big sis happy']] as this. This "revelation" put a sour taste in this troper's mouth, resulting with him unfollowing the tumblr (due to AJ being his favorite character and the fact how Sam Rose basically has written Equestria as).
** The crossover with DiscordedWhooves, which has left some fans thinking ''this'' is where the tumblr stopped being about the struggle Scootaloo deals with and instead focused on DarknessInducedAudienceApathy.
* HarsherInHindsight: Diamond Tiara making fun of Scootaloo's pregnancy becomes a lot more cringeworthy now that a sneak peek of S4 show Tiara making fun of Scootaloo for not being able to fly.
* MoralEventHorizon: See CrossesTheLineTwice.
** This is subverted after the trial, where it's revealed it was more InnocentlyInsensitive that outright malevolence. Scootaloo [[EasilyForgiven forgives them]], and Sandy decides to give them a chance in light of her charge's decision, but Sandy makes it clear that they '''''will''''' regret it if she catches them doing anything like it again.
** Pokey Pierce crossed it by framing Scootaloo for his own murder of Clearwater.
** In Sandy's backstory, the [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/66390041055/sandys-backstory-part-3-part-1-part-2-part-3 two colts who dropped Sandy off a roof]] because she was so good that the other students had to work harder ''really'' crossed it!
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Ever since the crossover with DiscordedWhooves, some fans have noted how the tumblr has shifted to having DarknessInducedAudienceApathy, similar to that with Discorded Whooves, as something negative constantly has to happen to Scootaloo, big or small. Same could be said with Sandy. It doesn't help that Miss Twilight Sparkle is now a recurring character ever since said cross over..
* '''ToughActToFollow''': While it gets it's fair share of love, it isn't considered in pair with SilentPonyvilleChronicles.
* {{Woobie}}: Scootaloo and Sandy.
