Ask yourself this question: which is more likely? An episode where the ponies are transported to a comic book universe, in which they are made to parody well-known super heroes battling an outlandish villain–or a Zecora episode?

I'll take super hero episode for $400 Alex.

>implying Zecora wasn't in a freeze frame sucked into the book too and given the part of the villan Zebras are always the villan

My question now is how long do we have to wait until we start getting tentacle clop of this new villain from the corruption thread?

P.S. My favorite Rarity episode. First one where I've liked her more than Fluttershy.

These are versions of Hearts as Strong as Horses with only one singer at a time.

I honestly think it would be better if the song was separated like this and jumped between them, only joining them together for the chorus and at other appropriate times.

*cough cough* because then it would be more like "I'll Make a Man Out of You" *cough*

An interesting realization that I should have obviously made earlier, but this seems to be the first time the actual voice of Sweetie Belle also sang for Sweetie Belle.
Normally, Michelle Creber picks up the Sweetie Belle singing, which makes CMC songs weird because then it's just Michelle Creber, Michelle Creber with a southern accent, and Madeleine Peters.

But this time, Claire Corlett is actually singing for Sweetie Belle. And she does an amazing job.

"And I wanted to tell you, dear sister, how glad I am to see that you have chosen to ornament this occasion with a color combination so disgusting that I don't think I could have come up with it if I had set to work on it assiduously, whilst suspended in an alien cocoon."

"To be sure, older sister, I am confident you have taught her well the ways of passive-aggressive bitchery."

"Perhaps, following the coronation, we can hold a reception–a party, similar to the one held in Ponyville to celebrate your seditious behavior, little sister, but for adults instead."

"And I would be certain to attend it, for only an idle-brained cunt would forgo such an invitation, much less a formal ceremony at which they were the guest of honor."

Twilight seems uncomfortable with princesshood. Anonymous 444623[View]

If that theme continues throughout the season, they may actually be cleverly setting up for something amazing. Here's my prediction for the season:

1. As the season progresses, a Twilight gets more and more uncomfortable with the "Princess" title.
2. In the finale, her ascension attracts some sort of catastrophe and/or her new responsibilities cause her to crack.
3. Twilight decides princesshood just isn't for her, and uses the destiny spell from MMC to change herself back into regular Twilight.

After this, it can go a few different ways.
4a. Celestia reveals that the whole thing was just another test, to teach Twilight that a good student is willing to question her teacher.
4b. Celestia reveals that the whole thing was just a test, to teach Twilight to be humble enough to say no to responsibilities she doesn't think she can handle, and/or rewards she doesn't think she deserves.
4c. Celestia realizes she was wrong, and has to write a letter about the lesson _she_ learned. "-Dear Princess- To My Faithful Student, Twilight: I learned that whether you're a mother, or just a mother figure, you need to remember that your children have their own goals, and you shouldn't try to force _them_ to follow _your_ passions."
4d. Some combination of the above, such as combining the lessons, or Twilight stating she learned one or both of the lessons, and Celestia responding by talking about her own lesson.

This would be so badass. Especially the penultimate one, because it shows that Celestia isn't infallible, gives a nice "teacher learns from student" moment, and teaches the parents of the target audience for a change. If one of these happens, I'll take back 75-85% of the bad stuff I've said about Twilacorn.

I just realized I'd been a brony for two hears. Chills. It made me think about things for a while.

Has this whole business become boring to you all? It's starting to fade for me. I miss when there was that exhilaration - the novelty to it; doing something you've never done before - and that feeling of going deeper and moving in your own direction. It's foolish, and everyone knows that, but deep down, most everyone felt it anyway.

The old "big" artists are moving away from the fandom. It seems there are fewer and fewer good songs and fewer and fewer good stories. Because of this, things seem to have just fallen into a routine.

Most of us agree S3 was a total failure meant to fill in the minimum of gaps. I'm honestly hoping season 4 is good, and a sort of "spark" to keep things alive again.

I'm just a random person with opinions; what are your thoughts on this matter? When did you get on this neverending ride? How do you feel about the general state of the fandom?

Season 4 will not be better by the sheer factor that MLP:FiM was a sleeper cell that came out of nowhere when the fandom first exploded onto the scene.

Now? The effect is more or less miffed these days. The awe behind it no longer resonates as loudly as it did before, nor will it ever again.

The fad has passed gentlemen. That does not mean the fandom itself will die, but whatever drew the initial fanbase in is now more or less gone.

From here on out, it will be the typical slash and slab stuff that we'll expect from any fandom.

Hell, I ditched mine with Pokemon a long time ago. It won't be any different here. I'll still be around, but I definitely know the best has come to past a long time ago, for me being at the time of Luna Eclipsed.

Okay, that makes more sense. Can't say I'd heard OP being used in such context before, so I misunderstood what you meant. Still don't think I agree completely, but I can see what you mean.

And indeed. It could very well mean Twilight was meant to be the Bearer of the Element of Magic or has some even deeper connection to the Tree or the Elements. I would imagine they have a plan, but I have no idea what it is going to be at this point…

Ah, yes, that would have been nice, wouldn't it? Though Blueballs I personally think is just a remnant of the past in some way and not actually a prince like the Princesses are.

Twi was Celestia's personal student for a good few years, so I can't say I'm really surprised she isn't exactly lower-tier. But it could have been nice, for sure. At least she doesn't have a magical mane like the original princesses. …yet.

Besides, clearly alicorn magic makes stallions evil. Exhibit A: King Sombrero.

Not true. You would probably have to replace the sheet rock after something like that, assuming that the studs aren't also damaged (both Twilight and Fluttershy must have hit the studs, otherwise they almost certainly would have gone flying through the wall). That's a task that could take a whole afternoon, and we see Pinkie out and about the next morning.
