Well this is beyond late. So late, we're at season 6 already. I know some folks were really wondering where this was, and I'm sorry to have disappointed you. Suffice to say, life has been busy, and the few times I would have had a chance to put this together, wrenches were thrown. I will say that season 6 has started off stronger than I would have expected. Starlight's incorporation was strong, but it remains to be seen how it pays off. I'm personally glad for the absence of a villain, letting the episode instead play to the characters and the humor. All in all it was handled very well, and I'm more excited for the season now than I was.

Now, there is one more thing. Again, I apologize for the late arrival of the season 5 conclusion. And many (some? a few?) of you are probably going "But Esuka, where is the season 6 premiere drawing?" After consideration, I have decided I will not be doing follow-up works for season 6. I've done these for three seasons now, and between the effort and a decline in popularity, it's just not as much fun as it used to be. The community has changed drastically since I first got involved, as one would expect it to. If you are super upset by this, and want something that I regularly update, The Canterlot Academy of Music updates twice a week. I'm sorry if this comes as a disappointment.

Season 5 was a ride. Some episodes were utterly skippable, some were toppers on the show's history. We're just at the beginning of season 6, but it looks like this train isn't slowing down. I know I'll be watching, and I hope you all have a wonderful time. Until next time, everyone, be excellent.

Don't be silly. The baby was the villain.

Babies are always villains. Don't be fooled by their difficulties in walking, talking, or believing that objects they can't see continue to exist. They're evil masterminds.

Sigh. This is beautiful yet a bit bittersweet. I can't yet accept Starlight Glimmer. I just really, really wish they'd done a crappier job making her an evil character. They might then have done a much better job reforming her but oh well.
