No post on Sundays
Listening to some very sweet piano...
Chapter's still chugging along, so this week I'll talk a bit about the season finale in regards to Exp. I'll tag the story with this post as well.
I'll be honest, I didn't watch it, and at the moment I don't plan to. I've had the story explained to me, and while it sounds like an interesting concept, I'm wary of watching it and having it mess with my headcanon. For the same reason, I try to stay away from most other Twilicorn stories. Thing is, now that Twilicorn is canon, and I'm certain that it's vastly different to my perception of the subject (those of you who watched it may very well be amused by the prior understatement, I'd imagine), so I intend to keep the two separate by not watching the finale. Thing is, we have a set plan for the story's direction, and if I see where the show itself wants to take the premise, then it'll probably skew my perception of it.
So, since the finale of S3 interferes directly with the storyline of Expectations, I'm going to have Exp. take place at some point before the end of season 3, having the timelines essentially split there; this means that anything that happens in season four and onwards never happened prior to the start of Exp, and since I'm not much of a fan of doing alternate events of episodes in fanfics, these events won't take place in future chapters. So, if in S4 Scootaloo learns to fly, she'll probably be flightless for the rest of the story, for instance. In essence, Anything that happens from now on in the show will be completely ignored.
Of course, it may be a bit weird to those of you who have seen the episode to then read an old pre-S3 Twilicorn story that contradicts the canon, so I'll try my best to stick to the predetermined story we'd set out, so I'll skip the finale. Will I have to avoid watching the rest of the show from now on until Exp. is complete? I don't know, we'll see.
So yeah, what did you lot think of the finale?
Wow, you got me there, well done. This is where is gets tough.
Your move, Black Team!
