that reference joke is almost as old and played out as the Twilight reading "Twilight" thing

it makes sense that now would be the time that it would pop up again

but

that isn't even an interesting spin on it

Actually it was originally posted a few days before the RR Kickstarter.

It just occurred to me that maybe some of the events of Inspiration Manifestation cast the year-old fansong Where The Rich Ponies Go in a new light

how's that a problem

just place the setting between two earlier seasons or in an earlier season or in an alternate universe based on earlier seasons

putting season 4 on might help with characterization, though (except for the parts where the writers of the show completely fuck up the characterization)

oh, no, i don't need to worry about season 4, this thing is set after season 2 and kind of just ignores whatever happens later

my fear was that the only way i could scare up more motivation (or righteous indignation, they kind of blur together) is to watch season 4. the fic came from an overall feeling i got of the direction the show was going in during season 3, and it kiiiiiiiiiiiinda sounds like it kept going that way in season 4, but i don't really want to watch all those episodes and find out for sure

For the best of the general feel of the show:
Watch the Weird Al episode.
Watch the Maud Pie episode.
maybe watch some of the other episodes. Depends on what you like. Apple family? Cute city pone? Fluttershy singing bass? Twilight mentoring little fillies? Aardvarks?


For the storyline:
Watch the opening two parter.
maybe watch some of the "key" episodes
Watch the finale.

give it two or three hours if you're going to be writing about it. c'mon.

Friday Fanfiction Feature:

#1



I mean, I get that King Sombra's horn is talking. The only thing I don't get is why it's Alan Rickman's shoulder that's talking and not his hair.


#2
True Love:



#3

I just caught myself singing, "Fluttershy in the sky, I can go twice as high..." and so on.

I blame Darq.
