Making New Friends by Lopoddity Making New Friends by Lopoddity
"Mommy, look what I made!"


creative little pandora makes a new friend out of some spare animals she found roaming around in Applejack's barn

also, the reason she was banned from Sweet Apple Acres for a brief period

I decided to retcon some elements of Pandora's backstory. Namely this: Freak Princess by Lopoddity. It began to feel cheap to me that ponies would bully Pandora for her appearance. Ponies have been shown to be a little xenophobic, but in later seasons they really don't seem to have any problems accepting Spike, King Thorax, Ember, Discord, the yaks, etc. So I can admit that in the peaceful, friendship-loving place like Equestria, it wouldn't be realistic for Pandora, an innocent child, to be bullied to the point of being made to feel like a monster. So how do the kind ponies of Equestria view a child draconequus?

It's simple. They fear her.

The fear didn't come from nothing. Pandora is a cute bby noodle with doofy floppy ears, and when she was born, many a pony found themselves cooing over the baby draconequus. She was a point of intrigue throughout the town. Sure, there were a few murmurs of concern here and there, but the ponies were largely quite tolerant and accepting............until her powers began to manifest.

Pandora is a child god. She has the power to bend reality as she pleases-including inverting gravity, reshaping matter, and overriding ponies' free will.....all these powers, combined with the non-existent restraint of a child, combined with a natural mischievous streak. As a child, she didn't understand that her playing could have dangerous consequences-she could hurl a snack cart fifty feet in the air because she thought it'd be funny, or force-fuse two animals together in an attempt to make a fun new pet, not grasping that the cart could kill somepony when it falls back down, or that fusing creatures together can seriously damage them. (Although don't worry about the chicken-rat here. Twilight and Discord were successfully able to separate and magically reorganize both creatures' molecules back into their original forms. Pandora made a glittery sincere sorry-I-scared-Auntie-Rarity-and-made-her-throw up-on-Auntie-Applejack apology card.)

Pandora made mistakes as a baby and a child, and ponies got hurt or terrified, and they give her a wide berth as she grows older. as she's older she understands that its more about her actions then her appearance, but as a child I can see her feeling an alienation between herself and children her own age, and grows a complex about being seen as a monster. She tries desperately to prove she is good, and sometimes succeeds in pulling off a kind deed here and there, but often her magic backfires, and she ends up causing more harm than help. Her desperation to rein herself in later factors heavily into her decision to train to become a princess.

So Pandora wasn't really bullied as a child (except by kid Bruce, who was exactly dumb enough to pick on a young monster). She was just...avoided.

Pandora's natural tendencies toward mayhem and destruction ( DADDY'S LITTLE PRINCESS by Lopoddity ) lead to Twilight very quickly implementing lessons to teach her daughter control of her magic, as well as ethics and morality: (old art but still kinda relevant: Magic by Lopoddity) Pandora may be a mischievous trickster as an adult, but deep down, she will always ultimately do what is right.

Sorry, but that's.....incredibly stupid. Starswirl and Sunburst are both male respected magic-users, and Shining Armor is both a magic-user and a respected authority. While Equestria is ruled by demi-goddesses, we have literally no evidence to suggest stallions are treated unfairly. If anything, Equestria is a perfect egalitarian society, with both males and females in a multitude of career positions. Literally no one is "denying" Moondancer because of his gender-Twilight Sparkle even took him on as a student.

"Denied by his friends, ignored most of his life"-so, so not true. Moondancer had good relationships with his friends and family. He was happy and well-adjusted, until he started obsessing over proving himself better than everyone.

Moondancer is a male, but neither white(???) nor heterosexual. Moondancer is not oppressed. He comes from a family that has done nothing but love and support him. He has a special talent, but chooses to pursue magic, not for the sake of study or glory, but because it will allow him to have power over others. Moondancer is profoundly insecure, power-hungry, and ego-maniacal. You are projecting a number of bizarre issues onto him, like him somehow being the victim of sexism, somehow making a positive change in society, despite him being, for all intents and purposes, the equivalent of a serial killer. Moondancer is not justified in his actions, because destroying other ponies to become stronger to pump up your own ego is unjustifiable. If you are interpreting Moondancer as the good guy, it's because you're bending over backwards to justify his actions.

I've read your other comments on my work, and many of them seem to be coming from a place of strange sexism and homophobia. Frankly, your comments are really goddamn annoying, and you insist on answers to the asinine questions you constantly ask. I'm blocking you. Goodbye.

Make new friends, but keep the old. 
One is silver and the other's gold. 

I like Pan being unaware of how creepy her powers can be. 
It creates a bit of possible dark humor.
