You shill.

Guess you won't be alone in shilling. Check the blog above, it's a bit ponderous but fascinating.

I have many potential ideas to write about but only eight slots left.

Post of the Day #2390

Glad to know I'm not alone in not cleaning up my bedroom. My bedroom isn't a total mess, but it could be cleaned up. Emphasis on could. I think it's fine most of the time. Unless I'm looking around for something I need and I can't find it.

...

Thought exercise. One of the Mane Six is going to have a baby: How do the others react?

Pinkie would probably be super excited, given how she reacted to the Cakes and Flurry Heart.

Plot twist, it is Pinkie Pie who is having the baby, and she now has to be extra-gentle and can't do much running around or sugar-eating.

One of the mane six gets a baby:

  • Twilight: Twi will completely stress out trying to research every possible detail about her own pregnancy and future motherhood. The others will spend the entire time fretting over calming her down, worried about what the stress might do to the unborn foal.
  • Applejack: Apples will offhandedly mention it like it's no big deal, and expect everyone, including herself, to carry on as usual. The others will increasinlgy try to get her to take a break from her work as it gets more difficult and more risky for the foal.
  • Rarity: Rares will be happy at first, then start fretting over her unflattering belly, first coming up with fashionable pregnancy clothing, then opening a baby fashion boutique. Everyone else will be supportive, and, as with Apples, try to get the workaholic fashionista to take a break already and stop stressing.
  • Pinkie Pie: Ponks will be over the moon with joy, and start planning the baby shower right away. And her foal's first birthday party. And every party after that. For both genders, just in case. The baby will have a party file filling an entire filing cabinet before it is even born. She will be so wrapped up in party ideas that she will fail to plan for anything else, and her friends will try everything to make sure she isn't woefully unprepared for having an actual baby. Also, naturally, trying to make her take a rest, and having heart attacks every time Ponks starts bouncing around the room with a huge belly.
  • Fluttershy: Flutters will wait until her pregnancy is very obvious before telling anyone, and she will be the model of expectant motherhood. Her friends will of course be supportive, and assume that there will be no problems whatsoever, perhaps to a fault.
  • Rainbow Dash: Dash will have an absolute fit over being told she can't stunt fly while pregnant. She will also be the worst prepared for having a child, even moreso than Pinkie. The others will fret endlessly over how in Equestria Dash is supposed to raise a foal. They will also have a fit every time Dash flies faster than a calm walk.

Part one of the season four beginning two-parter has been seen!

It started nice, focusing on Sparkles's nervousness and how being a Princess might clash with her previous lifestyle with her companions but got a bit punctured with the vines, thinking that discord did it even though it fits his power but not his modus operandi (nothing is really in the same category of "chocolate milk precipitation" or "ballet dancer Macintosh"), discord not helping because of his bruised ego, nobody suggesting that if discord is innocent then petrifying him will prove him so since being in stone means that everything he did will go back to normal and Zecora having a random potion that she doesn't really explain what it is, what it'll do, or why it needs Alicorn magic. Yeesh, this potion reeks of contrivance.

By the ending with Sparkles seeing Luna trying to bring about eternal night, this feels a bit off from what it started off as. Let's see if Celestia's exile of Luna has any meaning for Sparkles trying to get used to her new role or for the tale as a whole.

Why would petrifying Discord cause the plunder vines to go away?

[up]Because as far as they were aware at the moment they summoned discord (wasn't cognizant that the Elements of Harmony were needed to do that), everything that discord warped would go back to normal when he's petrified again. It's what happened in "the Return of Harmony" when they zapped him with the Elements of Harmony: he got turned into stone and everything was normal again: no chocolate milk precipitation, no ballet dancer Macintosh (or ballet dancer oxen or was it both), no giraffe-rabbits or such. Heck, none of the vines actually have any of discord's paw prints as none of them are tinged with the odd madness that characterized the touch of the Master of Chaos.

Petrifying discord would not cause the plundervines to recede so that would let discord prove that what's happening here is not his Chaos. He's the cause, yes, but not of the moment. It's what he did quite a time ago that's causing this.

That's an odd definition of "innocence", but I see what you're saying.

[up][up] Just to note, it was just the buffalo who were ballet dancing during Discord's temporary takeover of Ponyville in "Return of Harmony". Big Macintosh was acting like a dog (maybe got his mind swapped with Winona?).

[up][up]It's based around of the idea of "I didn't do this now! Me from a thousand years ago did this!"

Even if this idea was suggested, though, discord would still be "hurt" by the lack of anything resembling the benefit of the doubt and Fluttershy would still try to stop them. It's the idea being suggested that matters. It won't actually change the actual flow but thought being put into anything is nice.

Oh, and the two-parter actually made it explicit that the Summer Sun Celebration, done ever year for a thousand years, brings Celestia nothing but heartache. It surprised me enough to chuckle because the idea was obvious to an adult but it surprised me that now it would be explicit for the children seeing it.

Post of the Day #2391

@Ginger: Fanfics are usually written primarily for the author as they aren't getting money out of it, so if he wants to write Pinkie that way, he'll do so, even if everyone else didn't like it. @crowlover: Star Swirl would probably be rather embarassed. She's pretty naive and doesn't really have romantic experience. Plus her admiration of Twilight borders on sexual, even though she prefers stallions in general.

A question came to me: why did Celestia have the Summer Sun Celebration in Ponyville, anyway? Canterlot, as far as we see, seems to be a regular place for the Summer Sun Celebration. It may have been in Canterlot when Sparkles was a filly (maybe? My recollection is hazy), it's in Canterlot now in the two-parter I'm seeing, and we don't really see any places besides Canterlot having the Summer Sun Celebration more then once. Plus, and perhaps this is inane or wrong, but the Summer Sun Celebration seems to be the sort of thing that would happen regularly in the center of Equestria, where it's monarch has her abode.

In the Netherlands we have Queen's (now King's) Day, celebrating the king's birthday, and he always visits a different or town each year. I figured Equestria does something similar with the Summer Sun Celebration.

That's a more plausible in-universe explanation than Chessmasterlestia anyway.

Okay, I'm losing my mind here. Can someone back me up on this.

There's a thing in writing, where a character can "technically" try to kill someone, in the sense that their actions would murder a person if nothing stopped them, but these attempts at murder are done without any real belief or confidence that they will succeed in their attempt on someone's life. So the story doesn't really treat it like attempted murder.

Outside of one or two cases, there's no real evidence that Celestia could chessmaster her way out of a paper bag. It would make certain things in the story make more sense, but there's just no actual justification for it.

I think the most galling incident was the Crystal Empire two parter. Celestia telling Twilight to ignore her friends seemed like an obvious Secret Test of Character, but at the end it's revealed that nope, Celestia is just an idiot.

[up] Come again?

God DAMMIT, I hate that I can't even word myself properly. I feel trapped in my own head.

Just, someoen getting on my case that Starlight tried to kill Twilight in Cutie Remark. That bit where she traps Twi in crystal and drops her through the clouds. I was saying that it isn't really attempted murder because Starlight didn't seem to have any belief that Twilight wouldn't get out. It was just a means to put some distance between them. Her entire goal was to change the past. She left the spell behind so that Twi could follow her and watch as she loses her friends. What's the point of all that if she just wanted to kill Twilight?

I swear I've seen that kind of thing before. An "attempted murder" where the attacker clearly isn't expecting the other person to actually die. They're confident in the other person's ability to avoid it.

It does seem fair to assume that Starlight wasn't actually trying to kill Twilight. Though it's possible that she just didn't care.
