If someone says the line "What is a pony? A miserable little pile of friendship!" At some point I will be quite happy…

season 3 left the whole damn series hanging off of multiple cliffs.

>whatever happened to rainbow dash at the wonderbolts academy

>when are the equestrian games and will we ever see them
>why hasn't spike given rarity the d
>why the fuck cant scootaloo fly
>why don't they give sweetie belle more singing roles

most importantly though:
>why is applejack still the most useless, irrelevant, and politically incorrect pony

so many questions to answer hopefully Hasbro will make the right decision and allow another 4 seasons

I still haven't seen MMC yet because of all the drama it caused when it aired. I guess I'm going to have to now though otherwise I'm not going to know what's going on.

1. She's still training for them, but isn't one.

2. Episode 5 of season 4.

3. Because they're afraid of what doing anything beyond subtle hints would say

4. Season 4, episode 5.

5. Claire Corlett sings for Sweetie Belle instead of Michelle Creber this season, so maybe more?

6. Because they keep her boring so her family looks interesting by comparison. She's unrealistically folksy and boring, with no realistic quirks.

Turns out most ponies aren't xenophilic pedophiles. Or, if they are, it is not suitable for children's TV.

Applebloom is interesting enough in her own right. But Big Mac and Granny are one-joke characters. I can't really see them becomi-

We're not getting all into this shit about Spike's age and what is acceptable for an Equestrian relationship again.

They really wouldn't stop it because it's used for both comedy and "feels," some of which are pretty strong. They can imply a lot, and they could always pull the "oh he's really old by pony standards" card if they really wanted to since they've intentionally left most information about dragons untold.

Well Big Mac yeah is pretty much the same joke but there's ground to be covered. Granny Smith just isn't that interesting.

>"oh he's really old by pony standards"
He's still younger than Twilight since he hatched when she got her cutiemark. But depending how old Twilight actually is, he could still be adult by pony standards.

'course if they're trying to pass the mane six off as teens a la Equestria Girls, that goes out the window. But that never made any sense.

Anonymous 429592

Yeah, they're still like in their twenties. Nothing is changing that headcanon for me, sorry.

>that .gif

Nothing wrong with that…

Agreed. And Twilight was of reading age, studying for an exam, so I'd put her at least five at time of cutiemark… but no more than ten. She was a wee little thing. So for Twilight in her twenties, that's a minimum of ten years old for Spike, and he could credibly be upwards of eighteen. Clearly he's sophisticated enough to take unsupervised trips in Canterlot, and to arrange things with folks like Hoity Toity.

I don't get the feeling he's hit dragon puberty – his crush doesn't seem sexual – but dragon maturation is mysterious enough even before the "raised by ponies" complication.

I kinda doubt that they will even really touch on Spike and Rarity. The shippers can dream though.

Anonymous 429698

I really hope that there's a way that dragons can grow with some way other than greed. It can't be the only way, it would make way more sense if it was almost like getting a cutie mark, in that you have an incredibly emotional and memorable event that causes it.

Most of the time it would be the first hoard, but it wouldn't have to be.

Anonymous 429705

They'll "touch" on it in that they will use it for "cute" moments and such. There's also an interesting element (lel) to their relationship.

You've got the bearer of the Element of Generosity with a member of a species infamous for their greed but trying to fight it. That's just interesting by itself.

They'll probably just bring it up as a gag every now and then, i doubt they really have any serious plans for it.

In other words, it's going nowhere because the comedy potential is too great.

Oh and apparently the "sweet moments" aren't going to stop either.
