  • Creator Backlash: Phoebe Cates was so upset by the nude scenes (they used a body double without her knowledge) that she refused to do any promotion for the film.

For the fanfic

  • Outdated by Canon: Paradise was written in the first few years of the series' creation. While it did get some things right (such as Celestia and Luna not being Semi-Divine natural alicornnote , it also got things wrong. For example, canon has never implied that Celestia had a pink mane in her youth. The story predates flashbacks that depict her with her multicolored mane even centuries prior.
