I have nothing against her, but she complete destroyed headcanon that only natural alicorns are immortal. I thought Celestia and Luna were special, I thought they were naturally born alicorns! Even Luna said was suprised and said they they never seen this happening before... I'm literally destroyed inside... And speaking of royal sisters. Celestia and Luna dissapointed me. Even together they could barealy hold and failed in the end to hold snow storm. Are they really that weak? How did Twilight even beat Tirek in S4 if even combine power of 2 alicorns is not enough to stop blizzard?

Quote from: Dawnstar on 2016 Apr 02, 00:11:47Spoiler: showI don't consider her to be the 7th main character at all.A character who was only recently introduced, as a villain no less, and is rather suddenly redeemed can not be considered on the same character level as a primary cast that has 5 seasons of development behind them.Yeah she's Twilight's pupil now, but at best she'll get put in a "major supporting character" role like Discord and Spike, but with more screen time than the former and likely less than the latter.As for the blizzard. It required a powerful magic artifact to hold back the weather of the Frozen North. This means the weather that far north is a lot like the weather of the Everfree Forest in that the ponies are unable to control it. Except the northern weather is like Everfree's on steroids.Granted, with how many times Celestia and Luna have been missing or incapacitated it does cheapen their roles as "guardians of Equestria" even if it was the first time they actually did something useful against the "threat" this time.

Quote from: Icy Shield on 2016 Apr 02, 08:01:16Spoiler: show Well of course you couldn't hold blizzard forever even if you're alicorn thats why crystal heart artifact was for. But Cadance on her own held a barrier against blizzard (evil shadow blizzard?) that brought king Sombra for full 1 day or more.I thought writters intentionaly were making royal sister missing or disarmed for sake of moving story plot otherwise it would have been a short episode of royal sisters defeating evil with 1 or 2 powerfull spells. I was waiting for moment where they could shine and save the day (especially for Celestia). Yeaaahhh...Gods they are not. Not even demi-gods if they keep that way.
Quote from: Icy Shield on 2016 Apr 02, 08:01:16I guess not many want to talk on negative aspects of the show or just simply ignore it. Or maybe just don't care as long as there cute ponies on the screen.
Quote from: Dawnstar on 2016 Apr 02, 11:28:19Spoiler: showCadence wasn't holding back the Frozen North's weather though. She was just holding back King Sombra.The Crystal Heart was not damaged or destroyed when the Crystal Empire returned. It was just hidden at the top of the palace spire, but was otherwise in perfect working condition which meant that it was still holding back the weather of the Frozen North as well.When Sombra finally made it inside the city the blizzard didn't follow him.
QuoteWhat about Guard120?

Quote from: Midnight Breeze on 2016 Apr 05, 05:41:53Spoiler: showI gotta say, from a logical standpoint they picked the worst city imaginable for this plot.Manehatten is a metropolis, what are the odds that there's only one shop in the entire city that sells that particular product? Pretty close to zero. Could have just taken a taxi 4 blocks down the road to the next closest bag shop.Ehh...disregard me. My INTP is showing again.
Quote from: Icy Shield on 2016 Apr 11, 07:08:14Spoiler: showSpeaking of Manehatten. Always when I see it in the show, it feels so out of place. We got Canterlot, Crystal Empire, Ponyvile and many other towns with interesting/fantasy style town design and then...modern big city from real life . Doesn't fit to overall MLP designs that was intreduced in the show. I wonder if Las Peasuses will the same? I hope not
Quote from: McClaw on 2016 Apr 11, 08:45:04Spoiler: showManehatten may not have the same fantasy elements as the other prominent locations, but it does tend to reflect how major urban areas such as London and New York City looked in the 19th century -- which is the period Lauren was going for when designing Ponyville.
Quote from: Icy Shield on 2016 Apr 11, 11:42:16Spoiler: show You mean 20th century? I'm pretty sure 19th century looked a bit different. And still what's the point adding it to show? It breaks the whole atmosphere and looks a bit too bizarre. I think 18th century city designs would fit better
