Let the rainbow remind you that together we have equal rights

To clarify, the Mane 6 are the main characters of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, with Twilight as the central character, and the Gang of Five consist of the main characters from The Land Before Time series, Littlefoot being the central character.  Both terms are actually fanon, but they describe the character groups well enough.  So, I bet you're wondering what this blog is on.  Well, as you probably know already, I despise the episode "A Canterlot Wedding" and I describe the episode as a huge letdown on the subject of friendship, so perhaps it's only fair that I compare the friendships of the Mane 6 and the Gang of Five to see which one holds out better.  I know some of you may tend to think that the Mane 6 should take the gold, but let's be belligerently honest here.  The series MLP:FiM has the word "Friendship" in it, meaning that we likely tend to think the show is supposed to be about friendship.  Sadly, this is only what makes it suck even more when friendships don't hold out as expected.  This is especially true in "A Canterlot Wedding" based on my point of view.  I'm well aware that every friendship has its problems, but in a show that has "friendship" in its title?  You think that with two seasons, the Mane 6 would be less likely to cause problems amongst themselves.  In a series that doesn't have "friendship" in its title, we can expect pretty much anything to come out of it.  With that said, let's compare and see which friendship group is more superior.

The two things I like to compare the most for this include the MLP:FiM episode "A Canterlot Wedding" and the movie The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses.  From what I've gathered, by comparing these, I can instantly determine which friendship group holds out as the better one.  So let's take a look at the friendship-breaking parts.

A Canterlot Wedding

1.  Twilight surmises that her brother's wedding is a setup and that "Cadance" is scheming to harm her brother based on witnessing bad behavior.  Her friends dismiss her as simply being jealous and choose to favor two total strangers over her.  This makes no sense for two reasons.  First, why would Twilight be jealous of her brother getting married at all?  Is it because she doesn't even have a coltfriend?  Is it because she's worried that he'll be less involved with her life than ever before?  In fact, none of these reasons even make sense because "A Canterlot Wedding" is literally the first time Shining Armor has been mentioned.  So having him blow his own sister off by disowning her and throwing her out of his wedding is like revealing his true colors and showing us possibly the kind of character he really is.  A detestable jerk who cares nothing of his family and puts his own fiance ahead of everything else, including his own well-being.  Worst brother in the history of brothers.

2.  Twilight's friends showed little to no concern about her not being present in the wedding and seemed perfectly content without her, including Celestia.  This is one of the few times I give Celestia the verbal bashing she deserves, the other real time being "Twilight's Kingdom", but other times, she's perfectly fine.  If some of you think otherwise and that Tyrantlesia is headcanon, I say headcanon because you would like to think that and enforce it on others, then I'm very concerned for you.  And to be belligerently honest, I want to know what you've been smoking.  Because Tyrantlestia is not canon and never was.  The only reason I despise Celestia more than any other character is because she's every definition of the word nice and it sucks big balls to have her make dreadful mistakes in "A Canterlot Wedding" and "Twilight's Kingdom".  Nuff said.

3.  When the truth is revealed and Queen Chrysalis is finally set packing due to sheer, dumb luck (c'mon, admit it, that was the real reason because the Mane 6 failed in their duties and deserved to), we add insult to injury.  That is to say nothing is shown that hints that Twilight's friends were truly sorry or remorseful for their actions, especially having put two total strangers ahead of her.  I get that some stuff is not meant to be shown on screen, possibly for time reasons, but not having at least one scene that consists of Twilight's friends and Shining Armor make amends to Twilight?  That's just a bullet in the back and also the nail in the coffin that makes "A Canterlot Wedding" go down as one of the worst episodes in the series, if not in all of 2D cartoon history.  Why?  Nothing is resolved.

4.  This may not have to do with friendship matters, but I just have to get this off my chest.  Why in her right mind did Princess Celestia think she could go through with a royal wedding despite that threat that was made against Canterlot?  And could she not have told the Mane 6 that too?  Isn't that like trying to have a wedding in Boston while the city was in lock-down that one time after the marathon bombing?  I mean, really.  Think about it.

The Land Before Time XI:  Invasion of the Tinysauruses

1.  Cera pridefully thinks she should be the first dinosaur in the Great Valley to taste these tree-sweets at the right time because she claimed to have seen the tree first.  But it was Littlefoot who technically saw the tree first and likely because of this, the other friends laugh at her ridicule.  Cera takes this out by sneering at Littlefoot that he's too short to reach the tree.  This understandably puts Littlefoot into a depression, so he attempts to reach one of the tree-sweets from a cliff, but in sheer irony, he misses and falls, somehow emptying the tree of the sweets.  You might ask where the logic is, but that's not important.  The tree-sweets are then gobbled up by a pack of Mussaurus and Littlefoot tells a half-lie, or rather half of the whole story, mainly because he's worried about all the trouble he could be in... because of what Cera said.  Eventually, Littlefoot tells the whole story and three of his friends, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike, decide to dismiss him.  Cera is not shown to do so and it's possible that she felt guilty for putting Littlefoot down in the first place and it might have irked him to try and reach the tree.

2.  After dissing Littlefoot, the one thing happens with Ducky, Petrie, and Spike that we never see on screen in "A Canterlot Wedding" that had even the smallest chance of saving the episode.

Regret.  The one thing that I consider the saving grace of the Gang of Five.  Littlefoot's three friends regretted their actions.  In fact, Cera even suggests that they should find Littlefoot and apologize to him.  If anything, this shows that Cera, who's normally wild and tough and in the fourth movie wasn't exactly in favor of Littlefoot's new friend not warming up to her and the others, never held anything against Littlefoot for his misfortune.  Not once.  Ever.  Now, did any of the Mane 6 regret their actions against Twilight?  Did any of them question Shining Armor disowning her?  No.  Did they ever make amends in the end?  No.  Not unless I somehow missed it, which I'm pretty sure I didn't.  Anything off screen doesn't count because what happened was that bad.  Not even the kind Fluttershy stuck her neck up for Twilight.  And that's saying a lot.

I may not know much, but it's reasons like these alone that make it pretty clear which group of friends is superior, but just hear me out.  Because Ducky, Petrie, and Spike regretted being mean to Littlefoot, it's like they're saying that no matter what happens, they'll always be friends.  In the third movie, as bad as it might have been and I'm aware of that despite that I saw it loads of times as a kid, Cera says, "Littlefoot is my friend!  He'll always be my friend!"  That line sticks out in my memory because it comes from the character Cera, who used to start out bigoted and as much of a jerk as her father until she changed her ways.  Looking back on that line, it has more meaning than I remember.  As for the Mane 6, maybe there are a few points where they might have said to each other that no matter what happens, they'll always be friends.  If by that, they mean no matter what happens, unless one of us is a jealous nag over a wedding and accuses the bride of being evil, then yeah, apart from that, we'll always be friends.  So, guess who's taking the friendship crown in my book?  The Gang of Five from The Land Before Time wins and will always be the superior group of friends.

Nightmare Anti-Brony

Behold, bronies!  Your worst nightmare!  An original character made by me using an artwork of Rarity from G3 as its reference!

Yes, let it shock and terrorize you bronies with most evil senses of humor!  Let it haunt your nightmares!

ABC (Anti-Brony Campaign)

Bronies claimed their original policy was "love and tolerate".  They do NOT.  Sadly, this site is a heavy example.  Users claim that to be a user here, you have to be a brony.  Then, when people here, particularly anti-bronies, peacefully express their opinion, bronies attack these opinions, claiming that based on their opinions and their perspectives of how they see the MLP:FiM series, is actually canon.  Something based on mere opinions and perspectives is said to be canon.  Clearly, these bronies are insane and do NOT welcome different approaches, thus forcing others to give in and accept things from the same perspective.  I encourage people who do not feel free, and of course are able to view mature content just to be safe, to join ABC (Anti-Brony Campaign) and show that we should be free to state our opinions without being violated.  We can agree to disagree, but we should not have to be assaulted for being ourselves.

ABC targets the brony fandom as a whole and the bronies must be stopped... for their own good.

Headcanon

Bronies have reached an all-time low of making up their own headcanon based on their philosophies and opinions, claiming that they are facts, but they deviate from the real events.  But the real all-time low is that they're now out to force others to not only believe what they say, but persist until their opponents admit defeat.  So who's wrong and who's right?  Well, let's just say it's enough that America's Republicans are already hypocrites...

Scootaloo

Bulk Biceps

Flash Sentry

White Kyurem

Both this user and myself have been heavy victims of brony rampage.  We had originally come in peace, but have faced disrespect and injustice simply for showing up and stating our opinions and writing stories.

I think the G3 pony is cute.

But one thing I want to say, I'm not trying to sound offensive, bitchy, or mean here, but if you don't like the way the show is heading, and am not happy with the fanbase, then why did you still watch it, and are still complaining about it? I'm just curious, I'm not trying to start an argument. I mean, I saw the terrible new Sailor Moon Crystal anime, dropped after episode 3 due to the horrendous quality, found out more about it on Tumblr, and haven't even watched a single episode anymore due to it being horrible and the Crystal fans harassing me and other Sailor Moon fans.

And while yes, I do get frustrated with the fandom sometimes, no, I don't think MLP fans (I'm an MLP fan that doesn't call myself a brony), are "willing to just put their penises into anything pony be it good or bad, thus Hasbro utilizes the Michael Bay formula." We're not just people who will accept anything that's thrown at us (I wasn't too happy with the season 5 finale too at first),a nd what's Michael Bay to do with this? MLP doesn't have explosions in who knows how many episodes, nor sexy women with no personality.

I also don't agree about the " friendship is WAY more hypocrisy than magic and is more of an illusion." Sorry.

>>2071705 I judge the brony fanbase as a whole (not people individually) to be so devoted to the series, they're willing to just put their penises into anything pony be it good or bad, thus Hasbro utilizes the Michael Bay formula.  That is, even if they threaten to leave the fandom, they'll just come back and anything we make, their dumb, dumb brains will buy into it.  The Don Bluth formula is sadly also involved.  But it's only the part in which Hasbro thinks they can throw any shit at kids and get away with it.  Don Bluth films at least had powerful moments and happy endings making "anything thrown at kids" worthwhile to watch.  Sadly, I don't get that impression with MLP:FiM at all.  I mean... At.  All.

#87 · 8w, 2d ago · · 1 ·

>>2071703 I may be a brony, but I do know a good story when I read/watch it and both of those episodes I had mentioned could have been done so much better. In fact, a lot of the episodes could have been done so much better. There are a few really good ones and then ya get ones like these. Guess they can't all be gems huh? Although I did enjoy seeing the various different present scenerios that came about from altering the timeline.

#86 · 8w, 2d ago · · 1 ·

>>2071702 I commented on how forced Diamond Tiara's "redemption" was and how STUPID the Season 5 finale was.  Both times, I got flamed by hungry bronies.  And then after that, bronies started complaining about how stupid Starlight Glimmer's reformation was.  That's total hypocrisy, especially when bronies will not listen to anyone else but themselves.  I'm just about ready to post a hateful song on the front of my page here.

#85 · 8w, 2d ago · · 1 ·

>>2071678 Yea. I here ya. I think the writer's are becoming lazy. I mean the finale of this season has Starlight Glimmer becoming good just like that. The same way as Diamon Tiara. No build up. No long reformation process. Just their personality does a sudden reversal. And the explanation for why Starlight was the way she was was just stupid. Oh boo hoo. Her friend got her cutie mark before she did and she was afraid he'd leave her. Oh come on! Just give me a break with that. I literally facepalmed at that point in the episode. And they never showed if their friendship even ended.
