Once again clearly doing deliveries first THEN doing for a mare. As fr how its pretty clear once can assume that AJ and sugarbelle talked after the whole starlight deal. By the way the apples have done long deliveries before not to mention ponies always travel long distances. so thats invalid. Thats not even retconning. Besides itrs probably true that it wasnt thought of before hand but thats not retcon not garbage writing. Amazing how people miss this
"As fr how its pretty clear once can assume that AJ and sugarbelle talked after the whole starlight deal." No, if it is not SHOWN, we cannot ASSUME anything. It's not even HINTED at before that episode that the two had ever met. In fact, they could have used almost literally ANY MARE that had EVER been shown in the show (shit, they could have used any STALLION, too), and there would have been EXACTLY as much to support the relationship as Sugar Belle. Precisely NONE. There was literally nothing to support the relationship prior to it being forced on us. "By the way the apples have done long deliveries before not to mention ponies always travel long distances." So now we're just going to brush aside the fact that five trips TO and FROM her village would take FAR MORE than a week? He walked the whole way pulling a cart. It would take a day to get there and then another to get back. If he didn't leave as soon as he got back to Ponyville (you know maybe he slept or something) it would take no less than two weeks for those 5 trips. It takes HOURS to get to Canterlot from Ponyville by train (and last I looked, trains are just a BIT faster than walking) and her village is TWICE as far, PLUS climbing mountains after the train ride. Yes, the Apples HAVE delivered things a ways before, and oddly enough, they took several days for the delivery. But now Big Mac can go across the continent in a few hours?
"Once again clearly doing deliveries first THEN doing for a mare." Once again, you're making lots of assumptions with literally zero supporting evidence. If her village is THAT strapped for apples, there are cities FAR CLOSER that could have delivered them. This is just a baseless excuse for garbage writing.
Not saying its okay but its clear the staff dont put thought into how long it take Big Mac to go all that way. Which i agree since it isnt really relevant. You say its forced but not really. Theres really nothing wrong with just introducing this concept right then and there. You really dont have show us how they met. And yes we are just going to brush aside those long trips lol. it really doesnt matter. And i can assume what i want cause its pretty clear that what would happen when it comes to AJ and Starlight and sugarbelle talking out deals. I dont need evidence when it comes to Big Mac doing deliveries. Thats how these meet ups work. When you are doing a job suddenly you meet a nice girl. This is not an excuse its pretty obvious. I dont see it as garbage writing cause its not. Probably cause no one cares on the distance of a trip. Wow lol
"You really dont have show us how they met." Yes, they do, otherwise HOW did they pick Sugar Belle? She's NOT the only mare in the show. They could have picked literally any other mare from the show, but they didn't, they picked her based on literally nothing at all. Did they throw a dart at a dart board of characters? I mean, Big Mac had never met Saffron Marsala, so why wasn't SHE the choice? Or Lightning Dust? Shit, in the comics Fleetfoot was vying for his affections, so why didn't they pick her? Sugar Belle was a literally RANDOM PICK. And the fact that she lives across the CONTINENT is a HUGE problem. There are mares in Ponyville he'd never met. They live literally MINUTES from Sweet Apple Acres (removing the ENTIRE travel distance issue). But they weren't chosen, either. This ship was based on literally nothing at all. There was literally no thought put into it, making it no more than a crack ship. Even crack ship fanfic authors put more thought into their crack ships than went into that episode.
"When you are doing a job suddenly you meet a nice girl." That kind of necessitates having an initial meeting, doesn't it? Or do you just gloss over that issue in real life, too?
"Probably cause no one cares on the distance of a trip." People who care about quality writing care about the distance of the trip. That doesn't include you or the writer, apparently.
