Luna's Time Is Coming? Anonymous 385280

Is Luna's time coming in season 4? Will she have more air time, or will she try to take back the kingdom for herself?

Her backstory will probably get more detail. The modern mare? Hard to say.

There's always the option of putting Celestia on a bus and having Luna take over, if the runners want to up the intensity. Instead of "Celestia is powerful and understanding, maybe she can fix things" you get an equally powerful but emotionally fragile and not nearly so popular ruler. Puts more pressure on the manes.

Anonymous 385319

I know it isn't possible with this series on tv, but if Luna was to ever shock and awe everyone by being hostile and trying to take over the kingdom, like she has some negative sentiments to what happened to her before, it would really add to the depth of the show and the characters. I would love to see it happen.

Everything can't always be hunky dory, and friendships do break. It would be a great example.

INCOMING SPOILERS:

In the animatic that was shown at Comic Con (http://youtu.be/hnlquKcFM58?t=4m9s), a scene containing Twilight watching Luna's initial corruption and transformation into NMM was shown. At the very least, we definitely will get some backstory on our lunar princess.

As for other stories involving her, it's hard to say. I'd love to see some, personally.

Referring to what you posted, I think that was a dream sequence.

Random anecdote: Luna's cutie mark has always been a little strange IMO…most every other pony's CM is just like a brand/symbol but Luna's almost looks like an actual birthmark.

I always try to avoid spoilers, so my conjecture is that flashbacks/historical clips would make the most sense. The series pilot explained that NMM came to be because Luna was jealous of the attention Celestia got while Luna's work went unappreciated. Since then, Luna's been getting more comfortable with the ponies, from learning how to interact better with them in Luna Eclipsed to showing herself as protective and caring of them in Sleepless. Having her revert to NMM just wouldn't really make sense without being horribly forced. Not that I'd put it past the PHBs at Hasbro.

Hopefully it won't be something utterly stupid since I'd like to see more of her without it inducing cringes.

So would I, but unless one or more of the new writers are terrific at developing characters (admittedly, I've seen evidence that Corey Powell is), I have my doubts that they can handle Luna cringe-free. Has anyone else noticed that all the characters introduced since Lauren left have been flat?

Of course, I mentioned Powell, and she did give us the most interesting development on Luna so far: her ability to enter dreams, and the implication that she's compassionate about doing it. She also took Scootaloo farther than she's ever been taken before, and in "Just for Sidekicks," she gave the pets personalities that we didn't know they had. She's good.

On the downside, she used Rarity for shallow comic relief in "Sleepless," but all the writers do that. Poor Rare-Rare hasn't been interesting since "Sweet and Elite."

Scootapuff!saU4Tsd4dU 386361

>>386267
To be fair, most of the characters tend to be a bit more shallow when they're not the focus of an episode.

Rarara desperately needs some focus though. It will have been over TWO YEARS since Rarity will have had an episode by the time an episode starring her comes up.

Anonymous 386513

>>386361
>Rarara desperately needs some focus though.
No kidding. I guess you've heard that she was supposed to be the focus of "Spike at your Service," which could have explained Spike's "Dragon Code" B.S. and inexplicable incompetence, but reportedly Rare-Rare came off as a complete bitch in the original treatment, so they switched the focus to AJ instead.

Consider the implications of that. Apparently they couldn't figure out how to soften Rarity. They had to switch characters entirely. Have they played her as the darkest of the Mane Six for so long, there's no way to redeem her without taking her out-of-character? Maybe. Honestly, I wouldn't know how to write a Rarity-centric episode without introducing new canon that explained why she is the way she is. She's abrasive. If she wasn't, she wouldn't be Rarity.

The writers have painted her into a corner. I can imagine ways of writing her out of it, but doing it in a way that's suitable for the target demographic would be difficult — unless, of course, one simply pretended that much of her S2 development never happened.

Anonymous 386514

I think it had as much to do with Spike having a crush on Rarara as it had to do with her personality. She's still fine, and she isn't painted into a corner, it's just that particular situation probably made her seem unnecessarily nasty…

I would argue that Rarity has ALWAYS been something of a bitch; but the charm of her character is that she recognizes it in herself and (usually) works through it and in spite of her self-centeredness winds up doing what's right for her friends in spite of her own desires.

Rarity has always used Spike's crush to get favors out of him, though, and he's always clung to her and offered to help with whatever she's doing. What would even change?

"Rarity saves Spike's life so he devotes himself to her" is redundant. At least with a different character it's a new situation. Unfortunately, the episode derailed its own premise by making Spike terrible at everything, but that's a different matter not related to Rarity.

Somewhat, although she was lovable in "Suited for Success" and at the beginning of "Sonic Rainboom." In fact, the latter involved facets of both her and Dash's personalities that got left in the dust. We never saw Rarity being that discerning again, or Dash that vulnerable.

>>386661
>…the episode derailed its own premise by making Spike terrible at everything, but that's a different matter not related to Rarity.
I can imagine it being indirectly related to her. Her presence understandably turns Spike into a klutz, and his out-of-the-blue "Dragon Code" would have been explicable if it was just something he made up to get close to her. My guess is that both of those details were part of the original script, but they stopped making sense when AJ became the focus.

He knows nothing about dragons. Why would he leave Twilight — Twilight! — over some bullshit he made up? It felt false from the get-go, although if he'd left home like any twelve-year-old lost in his own fantasies ("So long, Spike! Good luck in your new life, and don't be late for dinner!" <snicker>) it would have been cute.

If they couldn't make Rarity work, they should have scrapped the whole concept and made KC&FO a two-parter.

Er, I was talking about NMM. Though depending on how you interpret things, they're essentially the same pony.

She is rather a difficult one to wrap your head around. Honestly, I don't really get her either. Arrogance and finickiness aren't positive traits, and it's hard to make a character so heavily defined by these likeable. RDJ pulls it off with his take on Tony Stark, but his style wouldn't work for Rarity.

Anonymous 386839

>>386804
>…depending on how you interpret things, they're essentially the same pony.
Yeah, the comic book implied they're not, but only Cook & Price's work stands up for me as canon at this point. Luna was possessed? Dash plays a Gibson Flying V? Fluttershy knits soft sculpture in a basement we didn't know she had? No thanks.

>Honestly, I don't really get her either.

I'm not sure the writers even do. She was originally supposed to personify the Element of Inspiration, and they should have left it that way. I think we've seen her getting inspired more often than we've seen her being generous.

What does she have to be generous with, anyway? Just the dresses she makes, I guess. She's sure not generous about gems, which is odd, because she has the ability to go out and pick them up like they were seashells.

She's generous with her art, basically, which isn't entirely altruistic. It's good marketing, and she's trying to build a business — same reason Hasbro isn't particularly protective about its intellectual property. Every episode, every parody, every PMV, every clip on YouTube is an ad for their toys.

Anyway, I get the impression that the writers have a hazier image of who and what Rarity is than any of the others. It's like they accidentally played her selfishness for laughs one too many times and went, "Wait a minute… what's the opposite of generosity? D'OH!"

Anonymous 386961

My own headcanon says that Luna and NMM are the same, with NMM being what happens when a princess gives in to negative emotions. But my headcanon also still sees the princesses as gods, and clashes rather badly with every Tom Dick and Twily getting wings and leveling up. Haven't even looked at the comics yet.

>She's generous with her art

Sometimes. If she's not too caught up in rubbing shoulders with high society to bother making the dress she promised. I'm sure if I found just the right scenes from the right episodes and base my opinion of her on only them, I might understand her appeal. Some people seem to have anyway.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately anime and I don't get along. I've tried several times but invariably it just results in fetal positions and uncontrolled screaming. I did look up the plot summary for that one though, and it sounds like an interesting tweest.

The first time I tried explaining my NMM headcanon, about halfway through I realized it vaguely paralleled Anakin's fall to (and eventual redemption from) Vader. The major difference being the allowance I granted for immortal magical god-creatures to go all super-saiyan when their emotions overtake them. It all fit in pretty well with established canon, and I'd have gotten away with it too if it hadn't been for that meddling Cadence and her surprise princess-out-of-fucking-nowhere. Damn you, Hasbro.

I don't know, she appeared young when she was babysitting Twilight, so maybe she just inherited an extremely rare "alicorn gene" from her relation to the Princesses and was just born recently (in the scope of thousands of years)

Apparently it was something like that. I recently read that Cadance was an orphan that Celestia took in, and she proved to be so decent that Celestia gave her those wings. That's supposedly the premise the writers have in their heads, but I'd take it with a grain of salt.

Anyway, if it is correct, Cadance isn't even a blood relation to Celestia and Luna. She's an honorary family member.

I can. She needs flaws. So far we don't know of any, but the situation isn't terminal because we don't know much about her. She's only been in three episodes (I'm counting "A Canterlot Wedding" and "The Crystal Empire" as one each), and two of them were epics, which don't leave much time for character development. In the third, "Games Ponies Play," she was pretty much in the background. It only told us what we already knew — she's not pretentious. She'll step in and help with mundane stuff.

Unfortunately, the Mane Six corner the market on flaws. I'm hard pressed to think of anything that doesn't involve vices that Hasbro won't let the ponies have. Addiction to bubble pipes and non-alcoholic cider wouldn't count.

I'm gonna stick with 'Cadence is at least a hundred years old and the flashback is a touch inaccurate' unless forced to change headcanon. "We never had a single fight" is such bull. Ain't gonna have none o' that.

Cadence (and Shining Armor as well) are portrayed as pleasant people, and capable without being overpowered. They don't come off as implausible in any of their interactions. But we still need to see quirks and inner struggles and petty frustrations to round out their characters.

Anonymous 394458

If the writers ever address her age (they might not), you'll probably be forced to change it. I think she's about SA's age — late twenties in human terms. We don't have a clear picture of how they age, but if Granny Smith is any indication, their lifespans are probably a little longer than ours are.

Probably. It just seems half-assed to have both younger alicorns born within a decade or two of each other when the other alicorns have been around for millenia. Enough of a coincidence to demand justification.

Not to mention it makes Cadence's immortal-mortal relationship less interesting. We can already get a "same age but her body doesn't wear down" relationship out of Twilight. Let Cadence do a different thing.

Well, as Lauren said, they don't hammer logic too hard. But, more importantly, she never intended for Cadance to be an alicorn. That was pure executive meddling.

She probably never intended for Twilight to become an alicorn either, although she did intend for her to succeed Celestia. She stopped short of going into detail about those plans. She said they were irrelevant now, and she didn't want to undermine the writers who are still on the show.

If she's a little bitter, she has a right to be.

Pretty close to what I've been bitching about all along about her and SA. They're both so blandly *nice*. No personality at all. They might as well be scenery props for all they add to the show. And given that they've been in the show for over a year already, any attempt at remedying it now is likely to feel pasted on…which is sort of how Hasbro has been pushing things anyway.

>>394501
>It just seems half-assed to have both younger alicorns born within a decade or two of each other when the other alicorns have been around for millenia.
Yeah. Pasted on without any real thought beyond "Sell moar toys." It's not so much that I object to change in the show, it's random shit from out of fucking nowhere that seems to have no regard for all the careful setup the show started with that annoys me. With a bit of thought and planning, most of the stuff that bugs me lately could have been woven seamlessly into the ponyverse instead of coming across like storyline by Mad Libs. Twilight has a BBBFF? That's cool, just MAKE FUCKING MENTION OF IT sometime in the TWO FUCKING YEARS they'd had by that point. And so on.

If Hasbro continues to micromanage the creative people, then they'd almost certainly make a hash of it. Reading between the lines, I get the distinct impression that Meghan, Jayson and the rest just kinda went "Fuck it" when Lauren left. You can't plan shit when suits are constantly barging in with changes that will domino through entire story lines. It feels like that's exactly what has happened.

Hasbro ordered ugly dresses.

>…sometime in the TWO FUCKING YEARS they'd had by that point.

Exactly. Making no mention of SA or Cadance in Season Two was a ridiculous oversight. However, I can't really count Season Three as a season. It felt like filler. I couldn't help thinking that they sort of shoehorned it in while concentrating on Equestria Girls.

I figure we'll know early in Season Four whether they recovered (which would mean someone diplomatically told the empty Hasbro suits to back the fuck off), or if the series is going to crash and burn.

Unfortunately, if I was a betting man, my money would be on crash and burn.

Which is fine to a point. It's a cartoon; I'm not expecting The Silmarillian, just reasonable believability/continuity. Pinkie breaking laws of physics I have no problem with. A mob of butterflies somehow holding a pony aloft is fine by me. Characters like Discord and Sombra not being mentioned before their introductions isn't a problem either since there was no reason why they'd have been brought up sooner.

>But, more importantly, she never intended for Cadance to be an alicorn. That was pure executive meddling.

Exactly. These were bad decisions for the show, though I guess good decisions for toy sales. Some foresight could've kept these from being quite as awful for the show.

>although she did intend for her to succeed Celestia.

Yeah, that was a shitty idea. Let her be appointed as Minister of Magic or something, that'd be fine and far less Mary Sue. She's already had way too much going for her, what with being Celestia's sole student, vanquisher of three major antagonists (and a minor ursa), owner of the only dragon slave* in Ponyville, sister to captain of the Royal Guard (not just A guard, but the fucking CAPTAIN of them), oh and by the way her foalsitter and eventual sister-in-law was also royalty…even without making her an alicorn, she was going to become Celestia II? Come ON!

>>395172
>I get the distinct impression that Meghan, Jayson and the rest just kinda went "Fuck it" when Lauren left.
Something was definitely lacking in S03. I got the impression nobody was optimistic about there being a S04 at that point either.

>Making no mention of SA or Cadance in Season Two was a ridiculous oversight.

I could've even lived without mention of Cadence as Twilight's foalsitter, that wasn't terribly important to know ahead of time since it was supposed to be a surprise that she was SA's fiance. Though I still cast a hairy eyeball at Hasbro for there suddenly being more than two alicorns/princesses.

It was okay by me at first, but as the characters became more real to me, it started bothering me more. The Mane Six became very psychologically realistic by the end of Season One, and it got to where the tension between the cartoony physics and the realistic personalities became annoying.

I suppose, but going two years without mentioning that Twilight had a brother was a major oversight. Worse, they didn't even try to cover it. All it would have taken was someone saying, "Brother? You never mentioned having a brother, Twilight," and that would have smoothed it over a little.

They didn't even acknowledge how out-of-left-field Shining Armor was. That was a serious mistake.

I loved they way the characters and setting were progressing too, but I'm still comfortable with it following cartoonisms. I guess that's one of the areas where we view things differently. Which of course is fine.

>Well, she was apparently going to leave it for the last episode.

I know. I still think it was too much. The rest of her plans I had no problem with, and had a nice bittersweet tinge…friends moving on with their lives, achieving their dreams even as it meant losing the tight group that defined them for so long. But back to Twi's ascension, the way it was crammed in was part of why it felt like nobody really counted on another season renewal. Tying up loose ends and such. Plus all the sightings of the verboten grey pegasus in the finale felt like a subtle farewell finger to Hasbro and love note to the fans from DHX.

>going two years without mentioning that Twilight had a brother was a major oversight.

And not just a brother, but an OMG BBBFF I WUV HIM SO MUCH WE DO EVERYTHING TOGETHER AND WE'RE NEVER APART! But not even a hint of a whisper about him for years. And yeah, everyone else being like, "Oh yeah, your brother, that's certainly not a surprise" didn't help either.

Maybe that bodes well. Frankly, the series could use a partial reboot. Where has Rarity's generosity and sharp discernment been? Dash's vulnerability? Pinkie's idiot-savant like intelligence? Parts of those characters were left lying in the road over the course of Season Two. They need them back.

Scootapuff!saU4Tsd4dU 395210

If I might interject here; there has been a fairly large turnover in writing staff coming into this season. Seeing how well the newest addition to the fold (Corey Powell) handled herself in S3, I am hopeful going forward. Perhaps some fresh perspectives will do us some good.

>>395210
Sleepless was a real highlight of S03, outside of Rarity continuing to be unlikeable. Luna's dreamwalking was a good example of something new from out of nowhere that fits in pretty well, seeing as how Luna's been growing as a character in what little airtime she's had. And Scoots's infatuation with Dashie couldn't keep getting dragged on forever. It might not have jived completely with Lauren's comment once that Dash wouldn't be a good big sis, but really, who didn't want to see them exactly as they wound up in this ep? I'd like to think S04 will manage some damage control, I just don't dare let my hopes get up too high.

I hate the idea of it being set in a high school, I hate the idea of Celestia and Luna being the principal and… what? assistant principal? respectively (oh how they've fallen), I hate the Mane Six being reduced in age while the CMCs are apparently at least three years older than they are in the show, and I hate the character designs.

I haven't seen it either, but if those things are indeed true about the film it at least proves that perhaps the staff haven't lost all sight of how these characters are supposed to be. It would certainly bode well for the future.

Neither of those things were in the movie.

Well, were they or weren't they?

I wouldn't say that is "along the lines of how she handled the parasprites, and weird little moments like, 'It was under EEEEEE!'". That's just like…le 4th wall breaking faec :^) or something.

Okay, I said I didn't want to see it, but The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy's link made a goddamn liar out of me. I watched it, and I find myself re-experiencing the same emotional reaction I felt after finally seeing Treasure Planet. I still think the concept is terrible, and I still don't like the character design, but… damn. That was absolutely, positively as good as it could have been.

TPWPAF was right about this, too: they did resurrect Rarity's discernment and Pinkie's idiot-savant-like intelligence. Both Pinkies did it when they pulled what was going on with Twilight out of thin air, and Pony Rarity did her thing at the end when she saw through Twilight saying she didn't have a crush on Flash. Of course she did.

So, maybe the writers do remember who those characters are. One can hope.

Oh, OK. We're back in agreement again.

That was pretty much my experience too. It made me wish the series was allowed to double the length of episodes so they'd have room to do stories like that. Except with ponies. And no high school setting.

They are. They do it twice a season and Hasbro always ruins it by meddling.

I'll be happy if she does anything.
