Hey! What did you do that for? Why'd you delete this comic? I didn't get to read it yet!

I didn't delete anything, you can read it at The Leak [post-episode strip].

I like relationships where the lovers are really different so they have to make efforts and learn from each other to stay together. That's the complete opposite, these characters have nothing to learn from each other as they are just bad clones.

That's what what MLP is supposed to be about: it's good to be around people different from you because you can learn from each other. And you can be friends even if you don't have anything in common.

Maud's previous episodes dealt with that. She has social insecurities, but she finally became a close friend of Starlight. She created bonds with a lot of other ponies which are really different from her even if they made her uncomfortable at first. Her character arc was all about it. Mudbriar has nothing to add to Maud's character arc. Even worse, it makes it go backward as this episodes clearly ends with them alone far away from the party where other ponies are.

This episode has a good morale for Pinkie Pie. "You have to accept your sister's lover as long as he makes her happy".
For Maud, this is awful. "Find people like you and stay away from the others".

In truth, what works for friends doesn't always work for couples. There has actually been quite a lot of research on this and they found relationships where they are opposites have a high likelyhood of failing. However, the same is true for couples that are exactly the same. The couples that most often last are those in the middle, often with a lean toward being more similar then different. Note: I say this as a fan of your comic. My argument is simply that as a moral, saying opposites attract is just as bad as saying lovers should be exactly the same.

No prob, we're just talking :)
These researches are interesting. I'm really speaking about a character development point of view here, not about real life.

nice... Exept this wasn't THAT much of a maud episode. If you watch in a larger scale instead of maud befriending somebody different despite social insecurity. Here it's pinkie having to befriend someone she isn't confortable with. Your point of view is like saying "pinkie can show maud her friends with their univers but maud can't".

The moral more appropriate would be more like "you can show your univers to your friend/sisters but it doesn't stop them to have THEIR/HER univers to show you".

The fact that this is a Pinkie episode doesn't make it meaningless for the other characters. I'm not saying Maud can't have her own universe, I'm saying her development is about opening herself to other universes and this pairing is counterproductive for it.

I hesitated to shout "Mauxie for life!!" But it would have immediately ended the debate as everyone knows this is the one and only truth :icontrixieslyplz:
