My Thoughts on Rainbow DashMuch like with Pinkie Pie and Rarity, my opinion on Rainbow Dash, at least during the early episodes, was influenced by my initial exposure to her. When she frist came on screen I gained an opinion of her as being "the token tomboy", which was something which bothered me at first as we already seemed to have a character to fit that role with Applejack. So when Rainbow showed up my first reaction was, "don't we have one of these already?"My Thoughts on Rainbow Dash in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But much like the others my perception of her changed greatly overtime. This was not just a typical tomboy character. There were many aspects of her that broke out of that mould. Though unlike the others, the degree to which she broke out of her stereotype seemed less obvious.
Not only that, but much like Rarity and Pinkie Pie, I didn't really like her that much when I first started watching the show. However, unlike those other two, and I know this is going to earn me many MANY haters, I haven't grown to like Rainbow as much as I have with the others.
My Thoughts on Twilight SparkleThroughout my life I've had a fairly difficult relationship with regard to main characters in kid's shows. In my experience they've effectively been boiled down to one of three options. Either their so perfect and so unbelievably good that it's hard to get invested in them as character, so flawed that they cross the line into flat-out unlikeable, or in many cases simply so bland and boring that I have no real connection or interest in them whatsoever.My Thoughts on Twilight Sparkle in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I need you all to understand this history I've had with main characters so you understand how important it is when I say what I'm about to say.
Because in my opinion, Twilight Sparkle is without a doubt, one of the greatest main characters ever put in a kid's show. No, I'm not joking. This is the first time in a very long time that I've come across a main character that's managed to find that very elusive sweet spot in terms of their general characteristics. She's not unrealistically good and wholesome, she has flaws but never so many tha
Equestria Girls - AdviceThe royal palace of Canterlot. More majestic and awe-inspiring than any other building ever built by a pony. When you looked upon it, you knew this was a great place, that it was home to those who were respected and loved. To Twilight, it was a second home to her. When she was a young filly, she had been chosen to study under Princess Celestia directly, and as such, had been assigned quarters here during her time of study. She'd spent much of her life living here, and even after she moved to Ponyville, she retained the fond memories of being here.Equestria Girls - Advice in Short Stories More Like This
But, as she walked up the marble stars leading up to the front gates, happiness was not front and centre in her mind. Instead, she was dwelling on a rather disturbing piece of information she'd recently been made aware of. Her colt-friend, Flash Sentry, had informed her the day before that he was once in a relationship with another mare. Now this alone would not have been enough to bother her, as she knew fully well that many ponies had more
My Thoughts on ApplejackLet me get something out of the way right now. I liked Applejack when I first saw her in the first episode. This is something that needs to me made very clear because, under normal circumstances, I'm not a particular big fan of stereotype characters. When I say that Applejack is a stereotype, what I mean is that she very much seemed to embody many of the traits that people have of those in the Southern United States. The accent, the farm, the big family, the hat. If it wasn't for Applejack's more redeeming qualities I'd have probably dismissed her.My Thoughts on Applejack in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But like I said, Applejack has redeeming qualities to her. Many in fact that, like with Fluttershy, far outweigh any of the negative things I'm about to say about her in this essay.
First, let me talk about some of her good points. Being a person who works frequently in a farm environment, she is, naturally, a very hard worker. I've always had an appreciation for the kinds of people who do this kind of work, especially when they put so much
My Thoughts on FluttershyAnd here my life really is on the line.My Thoughts on Fluttershy in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Yep, it's time to talk about Fluttershy. And I mean what I said, Fluttershy has, over the course of her time in this show, gained such a devoted following that it's become akin to heresy in this fandom to say anything negative about her. In fact so fierce have fans become in their protectiveness of this character that any characters in the show itself who've said or done anything to upset or harm her in any way have instantly become demonized.
Now, as a confession, I myself have participated in such behaviour myself during my time as a member of this fandom, so I understand completely where people are coming from. When we see Fluttershy, observe her mannerisms, her way of speaking, it creates an immediate impact on us. When we look at her we see a shy, sweet, innocent and vulnerable creature who needs protecting. In many ways it's like some sort of parental instinct, at least how I see it. A need to defend those we feel cannot defend themselves.
My Thoughts on Celestia and LunaAnd so we come to the two regal sisters themselves. Celestia and Luna, the Princesses of My Little Pony. Despite not being in the show so much, the little that these two characters have done is so big, both on and off screen, that I've come up with tons to write about, for better or for worse.My Thoughts on Celestia and Luna in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Let me start by addressing a particular complaint I came across when I first started watching the show. That issue is the fact that they're both Princesses in a land where no other form of royalty seems to exist. It was argued that because there are no older monarchs above them, like a king or something, that they should be called Queens instead of Princesses.
Well firstly, let me say right now that it is not unusual or unheard of for countries to be ruled by princes and princesses rather than kings or queens. These types of nations are known as principalities and while I'm not familiar with any such nations that exist at the moment, I do know that they were at one point fairly common in Europe,
My Thoughts on the Cutie Mark CrusadersI have written a fair deal about these characters whenever I did reviews on episodes that focused on them. Remembering what I wrote about them I find it easy to assume that many will come away from those reviews with the distinct impression that I do not like these characters at all. This is, in fact, a false assumption. I do not dislike or hate the Cutie Mark Crusaders. However, that does not mean that I do not occasionally find things about their characters that bother, because I do. But much like Spike, they've never done anything to make me dread their appearances.My Thoughts on the Cutie Mark Crusaders in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Which is already a point in their favour I can tell you. Typically, whenever I've been introduced to kid characters in cartoons, especially very young kid characters, they've been incredibly difficult for me to like. So many times in other shows it seems like they've been designed with the express purpose of being "annoying for the sake of it". So at the very least I can say that the CMC have never made me feel this way

Two years. That was all the time Draco had needed to become an animal.
The forest was now his home: the only secure place for him. But even there it seemed that its inhabitants knew his past. Even within the monsters, he was rejected. In a sense, it served as his prison- like his house, but different. All the forest was his. Draco knew every last spot, every rock, every tree, where best places to hunt were, and where the best fruits grew.
Now there was nopony to talk to. In two years, he hadn´t spoken to anyone. In the rare occasion that words came from his mouth, he simply threw them to the air- just for the pleasure of hearing something other than an angry roar. Draco could only roar at his savage neighbors. After all, he had to look strong in order to show them who was the ruler. But even he, who was a considerably sanguinary beast, didn´t dare approach the limits of the forest which connected with the resplendent city of Canterlot.

Draco continued to watch the scene unfolding before him- with those two angelical mares in his domain. Little Luna was splashing and laughing as, coincidentally, he had done countless times before. Celestia, on the other hand, simply sat and observed her sister.
“Come on, the water´s great! You have to try it!” Luna said, laughing.
“I´ve already told you that if we´re wet when we return home, they’ll realize where we´ve been. And we´ll be in big trouble,” Celestia replied. “I don´t want to be blamed.”
Luna submerged her head in the lake and proceeded to spit the water into the air, imitating a fountain. She then repeated the action, this time spitting toward her sister in a playful manner. Celestia jumped back to avoid Luna’s line of fire and shot her an annoyed glance. Luna answered her gaze with an innocent smile.

The icy cold of the lake water sent chills resonating through every last nerve in Draco´s body. As he sank deeper and deeper, he felt the pressure grow stronger against his body. Draco began feeling sharp pains all across his body within the first 30 meters of his plunge. Keeping his eyes closed, he attempted to recall a joyful memory; he wanted something pleasant to carry with him to wherever he was going.
Draco had never given much thought to what came after life, but as he neared its edge, he couldn´t help but to feel some curiosity. Maybe it would be a peaceful rest after a life of suffering; perhaps the afterlife would be filled with an eternity of torment and pain- even more tortuous that the life he had just ended. Or maybe what followed was nothing except the cold embrace of darkness as farewell. The only sure thing was the slow death beforehand.
It wasn´t nearly as fast as he thought it would be. Draco soon came to regret his days of training to increase his

After 15 years, things had changed considerably. For example, the prediction had continued to progress, and a second alicorn had born ten years after the first one. She was named Luna.
After ponies of the village went to Sun Pride´s home to learn if his son had been born, Sun Pride told them that the baby had born the previous night. And as it was predicted, he was a monster, so he decided to drown him. He also explained that the death of the baby had unsettled Grey Weather´s mind, and she had left home. That explanation fit very well with Grey Weather´s behavior. She was hardly ever seen by the village anymore. The few times they could see her were when she went to the market to buy food. Thus, the fame of her insanity continued to grow.

This tale I am going to tell began a long time ago, longer than what you could ever imagine. Before anything existed, even before this remote space we call universe, there were two entities, two siblings who spanned all trace of existence. Their names were Chaos and Harmony. They inhabited the limbo, a realm which did not know the significance of time and space, with each other as their only company. At first mistrustful, both divinities maintained the distance. But after millenniums of continuous silence, life was created, and that same instant was when they accepted their mutual presence, as for them it was understood that they were dependent on the other. Their union had been responsible for something marvelous, and that is why they concluded that they needed each other to survive, in fact, for their work to survive. This idea was not born even as a thought, but a mere instinct, an impulse neither of them could comprehend. And then, once combined the forces of order and chaos the un

Picking it up, he leaned against the basket of the balloon and regained his concentration.

Books and scrolls littered the floor of Ponyville’s library, leaving only a small path for Twilight to walk through. At the epicenter of the organized chaos was the unicorn herself, glancing between a large, old book and a partially finished chalk drawing on the ground. Occasionally she moved to a large stack of books detailing old languages and flipped through them, mumbling to herself as she cross-referenced symbols and details to a piece of parchment. After several more walks between her references and the near crumbling book she was so focused on, she grinned and took a piece of chalk with her magic.
“Now... I need to draw these runes just right...” Twilight said to herself, tracing an intricate pattern into the floor of the library. Beads of sweat were starting to form on her brow, from the concentration she was putting into the small piece of chalk scraping along the floor. Just a little more... she thought,

"I'm so glad that you decided to come to the ball with me, Dash!" said Star Catcher. Her mane was done up in a formal style, an abundance of curls fashioned into a crown at her poll, the rest falling down the other side in a waterfall of blue and pink. Her ears glittered with diamond earrings and the necklace at her throat sparkled. Dash had never seen a filly look more stunning. She blushed as she took the hoof Star Catcher offered her and they stepped together through the huge doors that led into the great hall of Cloudsdale Flight School.
The roof of the hall was open to the air and the weather had been expressly designed for the evening's celebration. A sliver of a moon shone down through layers of stratus clouds that lit up in its soft light like a veil of glowing yellow-silver. Gorgeous banks of cumulus surrounded them, and illuminated by the last rays of the setting sun their undersides were aglow,

It's late in the night, dancing is done
The music has died, you're ready to run
But you don't have a clue
This party hasn't ended yet not for me and you
Now you're just pretending
You're hiding from yourself
Yes you are, yes you are
Like golden rays of sun in the cloud
We're meant to be one, I know we are
If I am the sky then you are my star
Pinkie Pie stood in the middle of Sugar Cube Corner and surveyed her handiwork.
"Pinkie Pie," she said to herself. "I know I say this to you Or do I mean 'me'? every month, but you've gone and outdone yourself " She cocked her head in thought. "Or do I mean 'myself'? Oh, I can never work that out!"
The bakery was a riot of streamers and ribbons and crepe-paper and confetti, and brightly-coloured balloons floated up to the ceiling in bunches. The tables were covered with white cloths and party snacks cookies and muffins and sugar cubes and pot

Twilight Sparkle awoke with a start, going from lying down to sitting up in her bed in the space of a second.
She looked around. Her room was dark, and the view outside of her window the same aside from a large, full moon and hundreds of stars dotting the sky. A cool breeze blew in from the window, ruffling her mane in contrast to the warmth of her covers.
She checked her nightstand's clock.
It was time.
Casting a violet light from her horn as a guide, Twilight slipped out of bed as quietly as she could. She tiptoed past Spike, who was sound asleep in his basket, and mumbling something about Rarity. Or jewels. Or Rarity being turned into a jewel, perhaps? In the end, Twilight decided it was best not to think about it too much. She continued out of her bedroom instead, and went downstairs.
Her scarf, a pink-and-white striped f

"Are you sure you wish to do this?"
Princess Celestia looked down at the unicorn in front of her. She had dealt with this unicorn before, and could only remember one time when doing so had ever turned out badly.
Even then, it hadn't really been the unicorn's fault -- Grand Galloping Galas never turned out well. It was a known issue that Celestia was still looking into how to fix.
"More than sure." Rarity looked back up to Celestia with a determined yet content expression. "Remember, Princess, we are ever in your service. And by 'your', I naturally mean all of the Canterlot royal house. Indeed, I am beyond honored that you are even considering my offer."
The two ponies walked, with Celestia leading Rarity down several of Canterlot Castle's hallways. "Honestly, when Twilight told me of it, I was at first quite surprised. Then I thought about it, and it did not take me long to understand." She stopped and looked back at Rarity. "Given past events, you certainly have y
