SlendercoltEmber inched his way into the Ever Free forest, shivering from the cold, unnatural feeling the woods gave him. Every little crack of a tree branch under his hooves made him jump out of his skin.More Like This
"Calm down Ember." he whispered to himself.
"It wasn't that scary with Angel, so why should it be now, right? Right. EEP!" He jumped at the sound of an owl, hooting above him. He craned his neck to see it, and tip-toed onward. The clouds churned overhead, warning of a storm, unplanned by the Pegasus ponies, and he wondered just what would happen if he was caught in it.
As thunder clapped above him, he passed the river where the mysterious scaled appendage nearly caught him, silently questioning why it wasn't showing it's self now. He hopped over the slippery rocks, into the deeper parts of the forest, ignoring his gut instinct to run.
As he walked on the increasingly precarious path, strewn with branches, vines, pebbles and the like, all waiting for an opportunity to trip him up, he thought bac

"A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2"
An Overthought Review of MLP:FIM Season 2, Episode 26.
Note 1: This episode is packed with opinions and spoilers. If you don't want to hear the spoilers, come back after the episode. If you don't want opinions, why are you reading a review?
Note 2: Because the youtube video I'm using to rewatch the episode combined the two episodes into one big one, the timestamps are going to be a bit wonky.
21:25- 23:43: Cave Story
The second half of the story kicks off very mysteriously. Despite the intense revelation that Cadence is totally evil, we have no idea what her plan is or what the heck she just did to Twilight. It's more than a little symbolic that Twilight literally starts the episode in the dark, with barely enough light to see her own hooves let alone figure out where she actually is. Her little panic at the start of the scene pretty much perfectly sums up her feelings. But
Charlotte TheoryI just had a thought.More Like This
Remember when Homura crushed the doll that killed Charlotte and how some people thought that the doll was the Witch's true body?
Hear me out on this:
There is the theory that Charlotte's mother was dying of cancer, and Charlotte used her wish for a cheesecake to share with her mother. But she ate it all, and when her mother died, she realized that she could have used her wish to save her mom, thus resulting in her Witchification.
That doll that Homura stepped on may actually represent Charlotte's mother, and there may have been a bond between the Witch and the doll. This 'bond' represents the relationship Charlotte had with her mother while she was in the hospital and may represent the hope that they could spend their time eating sweets together if she had survived the surgery. And when you recall the theory that Charlotte wished for cheesecake to share with her dying mother but it all for herself, it makes more sense, as cheese s

Note: As usual, this entire thing is based off of personal preference.
0:00-1:09: Freud would have a field day with Spike's subconscious.
Seriously, this has got to be the most random episode intro yet. The Spike and Rarity dynamic doesn't really have anything to do with the rest of the episode. Although this scene does introduce Spike's inexplicable obsession with ice cream in this episode. I mean really, he's eating ice cream all through this episode for some reason. But on to more relevant things.
Twilight doesn't seem to have gotten over her OCD very much since "Lesson Zero", but at least she manages to contain her neurosis to the house and doesn't end up wrecking the town. It's a bit of an exaggeration, but it does fit with what we know of her character. She's been known to do stuff like this before, so it's not much of a stre
