    Oy vey. Picky, picky, picky!


    Bleh. 22 more questions on this test. Then I'll just have to write two papers. One of which is going to be basically a synopsis of Far Cry 3 (I took it seriously once, you idiot teacher, now you're going to get bullshit).

    Too hyped indeed. The pure stupidity of making alicorns completely irrelevant is just baffling.

    It's okay. I normally hate seeing spoilers for a show but I don't take this show seriously so it's not a big deal.

    So sad that so many people think Don't Worry, Be Happy was Bob Marley. Poor Bobby McFerrin.

    It's not making them irrelevant or lessened at all, in my opinion. It's embellishing the story, adding new insights into the working of Equestria and its denizens. People should have seen this coming from miles away with how hard Celestia makes Twilight work and giving her such difficult and dangerous tasks so frequently.

    The nature of alicorns suffered a much greater blow with the introduction of Cadence, because it showed that the combination of pegasus and unicorn biology was not unique to Celestia and Luna. It made them seem less all-powerful and godlike because their biology was no longer exclusive to the rulers of Equestria. Cadence should have been unicorn like Blue-Blood and I think that's what Faust had intended for her.

    I don't get why are people so uptight about spoiling ponies in the first place. It's not like it's some exciting show full of shocking plot twists.

    Badly. My arm is all red and puffy, and it's bruising up. The fun part is I can push down on one of the bite wounds and make part of my palm go numb

    See, but Cadence was/is the rightful ruler of the Crystal Kingdom. Making twilight an alicorn completely and totally destroys and semblance of alicorns being unique in any way, not when you can apparently just poof someone into one. That's the only problem I have with the occurrence. Cadence did do a similar thing, but it was redeemed in the episodes immediately following the episodes she was introduced.

    Yeah. The writing is directed at children and the plots are incredibly simple. I don't feel like spoilers are a big deal but I guess some people take it more seriously than others.

    They take it a bit too seriously in this thread and sometimes they even start insulting. It's ridiculous.
    Even on actually serious shows people don't get this level of pissy.

    Fair enough. But, I think the choice to allocate Cadence to the Crystal Kingdom was probably an 'after-the-fact' development. She likely wasn't born yet when Sombra took over the kingdom (considering she was still normal pony-sized when she was filly-sitting Twi), so I find it unlikely that her ruling the area was pre-planned.
    Personally, since Celestia and Luna are god-monarchs, I prefer the idea of alicorns being 'born' from magic (a critical element of the Equestrian universe) rather than being conventionally and organically conceived. Meritocratic reproduction, rather than biological reproduction. (Though, now it would seem that both origins are possible.)
