These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Motherly Scootaloo
Ass Pull: If you didn't follow the foreshadowing, having Discorded Whooves saving both Scootaloo and Lightning Blitz would be this. It is Discorded Whooves after all...
Broken Base: Oh boy...many fans get sick and tired of the entire Status Quo Is God aspect of whenever something good happens to Scootaloo, it always goes back to having something horrible happen to her. Also the Discorded Whooves 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 All Girls Want Bad Boys comes to play). 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".
In Name Only: 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 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...
Jumping the Shark: 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).
This is subverted after the trial, where it's revealed it was more Innocently Insensitive that outright malevolence. Scootaloo 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.
They Copied It, So It Sucks: Ever since the crossover with Discorded Whooves, some fans have noted how the tumblr has shifted to having Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy, 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..
