I keep staring at that "Block RainbowDoubleDash" button, and I can't help but wonder what would happen if I clicked it...

Hmm.

Honestly I don't know why people say that about Lunaverse Pinkie. Every time I've written for her, I've lifted immense amounts of her dialogue either directly from the show, or else from popular fanfics starring her (such as Pinkie Watches Paint Dry), and then presented it in the exact same context. Her first appearance in the Luanverse was, for example, a line-for-line remake of her first appearance in the show: throwing a party for Trixie, who had just arrived in Ponyville and was going to be living there from now on.

The sole exception to that "large amounts of dialouge" thing is actually my on-hiatus story Treasure Hunt...where she instead gives the foals a treasure map to kick of the eponymous treasure hunt. She mentions that she always keeps hidden treasure around town, in case of treasure-related emergencies. So the one bit of unique dialogue I've really written up for her is still spot-on with how she is presented in the show.

Have...have you actually read any Lunaverse stories? I don't think you have.

Anyway. For me, at least, Lunaverse-Pinkie is the same character as main-universe Pinkie. She just isn't an Element of Harmony. This isn't because I dislike her, it's because the central premise of the Lunaverse is that former background/secondary ponies are instead main characters, and former main characters are instead secondary/background characters.

...plus in the Lunaverse she has a coltfriend. Granted said coltfriend is Prince Blueblood, but she's actually slowly turning him into a better pony. Believe it or not the two work together, and shipping them is one of the few positive things to come out of At the Grand Galloping Gala

you people and your aus seriously piss me off. you guys all hate pinkie thats why you write these AUs just so you can bash her and hate on her and treat her character like shit all because you fuckers have a raging hateboner for her. just  look at how pathetic you fucking assholes are that you would write a bunch of alternate universes just so you can hate one character! we get it you think the show would be better without her SHUT UP! fine! write your own version of the show where she isnt in it be that way you fucking pricks! i personally dont think the show would be better without her SO FUCK YOU!

I understand that makes perfect sense.

For the most part Pinkie has been written by lifting huge amounts of her dialogue from the TV show itself and then presenting it in identical context in the Lunaverse. I kind of like the idea of Pinkie being a "constant", a pony who's essentially the same no matter what universe you're in.

Eh I kinda figured pinkie was at the bottom. You can usually tell someone least favorite by how they write and treat the character.

Hot damn is this movie better than the first one! I don't understand why it's getting poor critical reviews, excepting if critics hate cartoons for some reason. Because make no mistake, this is the cartoon, simply in live-action/CGI form, right down to the closing credits having the TMNT cartoon them play as the first song during them (a somewhat modern cover, granted, but close enough to the original as to make little difference).

Better still, the Turtles are definitely the focus this time around rather than April O'Neil, with a lot of time spent on developing them as brothers and as a team. O'Neil is decidedly a secondary character; she has her own subplot but it doesn't intrude on the Turtles, who retain more screen time than her. Casey Jones also has his own subplot involving Beebop and Rocksteady, but it is, again, a secondary thing to the Turtles themselves.

Speaking of, Beebop and Rocksteady were amazing. Every scene with them is pure gold, both pre- and post-mutation. Krang was great, too (though I preferred the spelling "Kraang", but the movie goes with the one-A variant), as was The Shredder and Baxter Stockman. Kirai is somewhat underutilized as a character, but in this movie she's pretty much here just to be The Shredder's lieutenant and doesn't really need much development for that role.

Basically, if you liked the cartoon, you'll like this movie and should go and see it, help the poor thing out - it definitely needs the help. Kind of like the movie version of Speed Racer, which is the anime in live-action form and makes no attempts to justify or apologize for anything from the anime, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is the cartoon, and everything that entails.
