Season Four Wish List Heavy Mole 442709[View]

I'm sure many of us have been speculating on just what will happen in season four, after a long interstice which has featured many staff changes. Some even say that this season will "make or break" continued interest in the show.

I have my own ideas about what I'd like to see this season. Below I've listed some hypothetical episodes which I feel we would do well to see (feel free to share your own!):

"My Little Candidate" - After being picked on by some bullies at school, Scootaloo decides to prove herself by running for mayor of Ponyville–but does a cutie mark lie in her future, or a jaded conscience?

"The Manehattan Project" - Shining Armor is kicked out of the Crystal Empire after he waffles an answer about his time spent with the disguised Queen Chrysalis. He goes to Manehattan to stay with his parents, and rubs elbows with Babs Seed, who offers to help him with his failing marriage…

"Baby Snakes" - The Cakes wind up with a gigantic stockpile of Big Beefaroni when Pinkie Pie protests that the Chef has altered the recipe from ordinary Beefaroni (besides just making them "big"); meanwhile, Sweetie Belle doesn't know what to do when she finds a dead snake in her room.

"Elements of Harmony Unlimited" - With Twilight having recently ascended to alicorn status, Rainbow Dash motions to expand the Elements of Harmony to make them "more powerful than ever". Each of the Elements have their own suggestions for who to induct (including Babs Seed, Gilda and Discord), but the girls soon learn that six heads are better than twenty-two…

"Everybody Dupes" - When Rarity swallows her house key at a picnic at Sweet Apple Acres, she inadvertently offends Applejack by refusing to use her outhouses. She must reconcile quickly, however, when the shade of King Sombra returns to menace the unfortunate citizens of the Crystal Empire. Can Rarity swallow her pride and admit the truth in front of her friends and terrified dignitaries, in time to save the crystal ponies?

"One Froggy Evening" - Spike and Shining Armor stumble across a tap-dancing frog when traipsing through Froggy Bottom Bog, and become certain that such a curiosity is what is needed to restore Shining to Cadence's good graces. The frog's stop-and-go antics make him more trouble than he's worth, however, and land Spike in the 'frog' house wit

-In the original 'conflict resolution' compromise for Over A Barrel, the buffalo agreed to fertilize the apple orchard in exchange for a cut of the pies.

-The original voice recordings for It's About Time included a lengthier "not going to move until next Tuesday" scene, in which Twilight is more vocal. She shouts Rainbow Dash's name several times in frustration and once in what sounds like pleasure.

-The script for Read it and Weep was altered heavily by by Hasbro execs to avoid lesbian overtones.

We've had the CMC learning lessons already, though! Remember Family Appreciation Day? It also gave a lot of background on Ponyville and Granny Smith.

Personally I wouldn't really want the side characters, and especially not background ponies given the spotlight often. With this I mean being the stars of their own episodes. Supporting roles, for sure, but the main show isn't about them, no matter how much I'd want Octavia or Rose to get their episodes. And after what happened with Derpy I'm not sure they'd want to touch beloved background characters that much.

Sorry to rain on your parades, but at least I don't think these things are feasible.

I agree, they're falling into the trap of writing her the easiest possible way, when in fact Pinkie's humor can be more subtle. Case in point: One of her funniest moments is "oatmeal are you crazy", and it didn't require a cut-away and a laugh track

The writers suck at writing for AJ Agiri 426926[View]

From as early as the pilot, the writers NEVER knew how to write Applejack properly.

Her element, "honesty", refers to living an honest life and having integrity, not to literally telling the truth all the time.

Yet in S1E2 and in S2E2, the writers clearly don't understand this simple concept.

In S1E2, she proves how honest she is by… telling Twilight that it's okay to let go of a ledge? In S2E2, her discorded version just tells a bunch of petty lies?

To anyone who makes the claim that the show has been declining in quality: No, the writing was always shit.

I think the lack of consistency mainly between the two parters is part of the reason why I'm not much of an Applejack person. I blame it on whole "elements of harmony" concept, which has made it a little more difficult to stitch her character throughout the entirety of the show.

Agiri 435771

File: 1384222269860.png (1.57 MB, 1158x863, Human apples.png)


I think the problem is that "honesty" can be defined two different ways, and the writers don't seem to fully realize it. She was written to be "honest" as in "to have integrity" not "to never tell lies".

The strange part is that Lauren Faust herself wrote the pilot, so even she fell into this trap.

Though I guess it would be difficult to demonstrate this trait in a short 4-minute scene.

File: 1384223552605.jpg (263.34 KB, 1280x1280, human Applejack blue dress.jpg)

AJ's pretty high on the integrity scale, although she has a major blind spot for her own athleticism. (She's a capable weekend warrior, but fancies herself a contender for the best around. Sorry, Miss J.). As for lies… she doesn't tell many, and she doesn't tell them well, but she certainly lies at least a few times.

In his most recent letter to me, 'thony told me he had a question for you guys.

If each pony had a personal issue and could only ask for counsel to one other from the mane 6, who would she go to? Who'd be her confident?

I feel like Pinkie would actually make a great confident for about everyone, but then I think AJ and RD might have a better time being honest to each other… Maybe?

File: 1383153498737.jpg (178.36 KB, 1280x960, 1383114722042.jpg)

I could see Twilight going to any one of the other Mane 5 for help depending on the nature of the problem. I could also see her asking Spike or one of the Princesses.

For Pinkie, I'd say it would be about the same as with Twilight, but without Spike or the princesses.

Rarity would definitely go to Fluttershy first, not just because they share similar interests, but because she and Fluttershy seem to hang out more often than with the others. Spa visits and whatnot.

Dash would go to either Fluttershy (since they're childhood friends and all), Applejack (because she meshes well with Dash's tomboyish personality), or Twilight (because as the "egghead" of the group, she would probably be able to help her the most. Also reading buddies).

Fluttershy would go to Rarity first, and, failing that, would probably go to Pinkie next.

Applejack would probably seek out Twilight first, then try Dash if that didn't work out.

Heavy Mole 427032

File: 1383162222228.jpg (7.88 KB, 213x237, lucy5.jpg)


Pinkie would get "lonely comedian" syndrome, and would turn to the quiet and reserved Fluttershy for normal conversation.

Rarity would feel isolated spending so much time in a line of work that not many others around her can be expected to know, and would turn to Twilight as someone who can relate.

Applejack, though a hard and useful worker, would sometimes feel guilty for being a "fish out of water" when it comes to topical or worldly matters, and would turn to Pinkie as an "in-the-loop" person who would not judge her.

Fluttershy would struggle with the demands of making it in the working world-at-large, and would lean on Applejack's reliable ethic and received wisdom.

Twilight would be stressed out by the high demands of her position and turn to Rainbow Dash as a confident, rough-and-ready antidote to her typical company.

Rainbow Dash would accrue many difficulties in her personal relationships due to her one-track focus and bilious temperament, and would turn to Rarity for advice on social matters.

The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 427151

File: 1383175299258.png (274.21 KB, 811x534, UAhBY.png)

Probably depends on the issue at hand, In general it comes down to who they respect enough to listen to their advise and trust enough to ask for help. Of course those with specialist knowledge get an advantage for advice in that area, see Sisterhooves Social, I can't see Rarity asking AJ for advice in any other circumstance.

Fluttershy -> Rarity or Rainbow Dash: she'd go to those she knows the best.

Rarity -> Fluttershy : They have this thing going at the spa, and Fluttershy is a very good listener, not to mention very kind

AJ -> Granny Smith or Twilight, depending on the advice she needed. Granny Smith provides wisdom; Twilight, knowledge

Pinkie -> Twilight: she acts as the rational problem solver

Twilight -> Panic, though Spike acts as her counsel she wouldn't actually seek him out. He just gives it on his own

Rainbow Dash -> wouldn't ask for counsel; that would admit weakness, he'd hide it or try to solve it herself
