"Would you please let me join your p-p-party?
On lore. I agree in a way. You can't change the direction that they want to take the game. I can however disagree with those decisions. I mean, I haven't looked into too much panderia lore, but in the little I played in the beta it was pretty bad. That being said it could have been changed. I dunno. All I know is I did 15 quests and decided it wasn't for me.
This is however a good time to inform you all that Sweetie belle is best pony.
Speaking of which, bored and reading a pony/portal crossover fic atm. http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/0...ience-and.html
