Quote from: Dawnstar on 2015 Nov 30, 15:09:24Spoiler: Starlight's Probation showI'm honestly surprised at how much people seem to speculate that Starlight is going to become a part of the main cast. To me it looked more like they were keeping her around because she was too dangerous to trust off on her own.We'll probably get appearances in later seasons, but I don't see her becoming a prominent character.Right now though I think the ponies just want to keep an eye on her until they're sure she can be trusted not to have a relapse.Spoiler: Alternate Timelines showI loved the alternate timelines though. Makes you wonder just how things changed over the years just based on how very different each event in Cloudsdale was.I'm actually more interested in the Nightmare Moon timeline than I am the Sombra timeline though. The transition of rulers couldn't have been that unpleasant seeing as there wasn't the same kind of strife in many of the other timelines. Plus Twilight's alternate friends didn't seem to have any issue serving Nightmare Moon.As for the whole eternal night killing off all life. I think what may have happened was that Nightmare Moon has strong enough magic to move the sun like Celestia (Celestia was only able to beat her with the Elements after all). My guess is that she keeps the sun up in the daytime long enough to make sure everything doesn't die off.Also, did anyone else notice the moon was shaded in the colors of Celestia's mane? Out of all the timelines though I think the one with Chrysalis may have been the darkest second only to the Wasteland one. If only because they made it seem like Zecora's village was the last remaining holdout able to fight back against the changelings which means they'd pretty much absorbed all of Equestria by that point.I also found it interesting how they chose Applejack to be Chrysalis' disguise. Hiding deception behind the face of honesty. Of course since AJ, Rainbow and Rarity were all changelings I can assume nothing good happened to those three in that timeline.As for the Wasteland timeline though, I think that may have actually been the timeline where Starlight managed to take over Equestria like she had planned.Without the specialized talents of the three pony races I can imagine their carefully balanced ecosystem collapsing without the care they give it.Spoiler: Another Interesting Thought showIn all of the timelines none of the other villains managed to regain power, so while the world was still in turmoil the other villains still managed to get defeated.Either because they joined up with the victorious villain of that timeline, or because Equestria was still able to find a way to defeat them.I'll use Sombra's timeline as an example.Only Celestia was there to fight back against Sombra's forces which means Luna was either rebanished or destroyed, same with Discord unless the war put a damper on his fun. The Changelings were probably wiped out. Of course since the timelines were all present-day that also means that Tirek was also dealt with in some fashion.Equestria's technology did seem to be a bit more advanced in that timeline than the others so the lack of Elements and the war with Sombra probably pushed them to develop a technological advantage.
Quote from: Chishio Kunrin on 2015 Nov 30, 16:27:31Spoiler: Alternate Timelines showRemember what Nightmare Moon said, though? No pony was allowed to have more powerful magic than her. The reason she was so successful and didn't have a resistance against her is because she stamped out any possibility of anypony rebelling against her by making it to where nopony had enough power to defeat her.Spoiler: Another Thought showWell, in real life, in times of large wars, technology makes huge leaps to meet the needs of the warring sides. Not just technology for tools of combat, but also for medicine and medical procedures, as well as ways of more efficiently producing what the people need.
Quote from: Guard120 on 2015 Dec 07, 09:54:48Spoiler: showThen there is her power. Twilight might as well give up her cutie mark, because the Element of Magic herself (who also gave up most all of her young life to her craft) was bested by this Unicorn, which never made sense. The writers should have used different tactics. To say nothing of every pegasus basically being made obsolete by how effortlessly Starlight was able to fly.No, All Starlight Glimmer taught me was that Petty, vindictive rage is more powerful than the Magic of Friendship and I will never forgive her for it

Quote from: Guard120 on 2015 Dec 08, 09:21:49I still don't like Starlight and probably wont for a long time, and that is my right and my burden. Maybe I will change my mind if I decide to watch season 6, who knows, maybe the writers will surprise me, they didn't with that episode though.
Quote from: LostSanity on 2015 Dec 11, 18:27:34I want to continue to watch the show and to be a brony... but... if she shows up... I'm just concerned that I won't be able to.

Quote from: wingedpineapple on 2015 Dec 12, 18:33:05Nah, we obviously need you tell us how much you don't like them a fifth time in this thread.
