I write pony words. Millions of them. Some people actually think they might be worth reading. I am very thankful for that. Also, I have a Patreon now?

New Episode. · 4:36pm

Spoilers for the new episode.




Oh my gosh! So much new changeling canon! So many fan theories laughed at! Hive mind? Nope! Doesn't look like it. The drones don't talk in their natural state? Yep, they totally do! They have names like Drone 8357? Nope! They have real names! They can only change into something roughly their size, only quadrupeds, and they can't change into inanimate objects? Nope. They can turn into dragons and rocks! They're hatched from eggs? Woohoo! We got that one right! They live in some sort of hive? Oh yeah! That's two! Spike songs suck? Sorry Cathy. You're a really talented VA, but you're given very little to work with on that.

Better than his attempt to sing the Cloudsdale National Anthem. That one... hurt.

Changelings aside, did anyone else totally get where Cadance and Shining Armor and all the rest of them were coming from? I mean, the invasion at the wedding had to be their, what Pearl Harbor, or something like that? Something they're not going to be forgetting for a long time. So I can't really fault them for being paranoid, especially with a new baby around. What if that one changeling they spotted was just a scout? It's a perfectly reasonable fear.

Plus I thought they accepted Thorax a little too quickly. I know it's only a 22 minute episode, but they go from "eek! a changeling!' to "We're buddies now! Here, let me present my newborn to you after you hissed and went feral the last time you got this close to her." Not buying it, especially from ponies who know they can mind control. Maybe the drones can't, but how do they know that? Spike says this one is good. How do they know that 1. this is the only changeling, and 2. Spike isn't being mind controlled? I mean, let's say that Thorax is just a scout, which, again, Spike has no proof that he isn't. I know he isn't, but I'm making a point. How does everypony know that Queen Chrysalis isn't hiding outside the city and mind controlled Spike? I dunno. It just seemed too quick to me.

Starlight Glimmer was wasted. You could have cut her out of the episode and not lost a thing. Might as well throw in the rest of the Mane Six if you're going to have everypony but Spike just stand around.

I'm getting a little weirded out by the devotion the crystal ponies (and hey, there are crystal pegasi now!) show Spike. They don't just love him, they worship him and just about treat his word as law. Not only is it creepy, but it's a one-note joke that hasn't changed at all in the past few seasons.

I'm always in favor of Groucho and the Mirror references. One of the funniest Marx Brothers moments ever.

Overall, it was a passable episode. Not awful, but not top-of-the-line either. It was alright.

But hey, once my editor gets back to me with the edits, which should be today, we'll get another chapter of The Prince! And I'm working on another chapter of TD v EQG! And Gwenwyn!

>>2245687 I think if one were to discuss content above and beyond the basic, an art site of diverse content would be far more appropriate place to do so than a site that is narrowly focused on one thing such as FiM fiction.
