    Final update for the year of 2023

    So, I didn't get to everything I wanted to do this year, but that's fine. For the past three months, I've been working a night shift again, which has really screwed up my internal clock and really focused on school. So, writing is always going to be the last thing on my mind before the rest of my other responsibilities. But I'm happy to have finally finished Lucky Horseshoes. But 2024 is going to

    Thoughts on Buckball Season

    I thought this episode was one of the funniest episodes in the entire season as it does well with the premise and humor, which also starts a rather fun subplot with the new sport "buckball" growing in popularity. So basiclly, "buckball" was just invented, and Applejack and Rainbow Dash are on track to compete against Appleloosa. Little did they know that three-star athletes were with them: Pinkie

    Thoughts on Dungeons and Discords

    This is a great one in general, especially in the second half, but I wished it did more with the premise it presented, which helped me make a future fanfic idea. Basiclly The mane six go on a trip to Yakyakastan, leaving "the boys" by themselves (minus the fact they don't have a pet sitter for their pets like when they went to the Crystal Empire, but that's a nitpick). Discord is the most

    Thoughts on Times are a Changeling

    This episode is one that I have mixed feelings about. I do have to admit that when it comes to some of the episodes, I think it would have been better if they split some into two parts to help flesh out the ideas better and help with the pacing. This episode is one of them as this is the first episode where we see a Changeling since season 5's ending and the first time we seen Changelings having

    Thoughts on 28 Pranks Later

    This episode was one that I felt needed more time in the oven, as it wasn't one I particularly cared for. First, the beginning, where Rainbow Dash scares Fluttershy, makes no sense. Not only did they make it clear that Fluttershy was easily frightened in the last Halloween special, but it also felt overly cruel for Rainbow Dash to prank Fluttershy, knowing her since she was a filly. Then we get

Thoughts on No Second Prances · 2:15am August 7th

This Episode explores Starlight and Trixie as characters with similar backstories, both unicorns who had beef with Twilight and are trying to reform themselves. The episode is basiclly Starlight Glimmer having to find a new friend, and she struggles with using her magic abit too much to try to force a bond. She eventually meets Trixie by accident, and they quickly bond, but Twilight is against the friendship as she fears Trixie might bring out Starlight's dark side. But the truth is she was rather suspicious of Trixie, and she is right to mistrust her. But Twilight was being way too mistrusting and not giving Starlight the room to grow on her own. But it turns out Trixie was using her new friendship with Starlight to pull one over Twilight. When this is revealed to Starlight, she leaves, and the craziest part was Trixie actually becomes depressed seeing how she messed everything up. Then sort of almost commits suicide, jumping into a Manticore's mouth and trying to perform a trick she couldn't pull off without Starlight's help. Lucky for her, Starlight comes back to save her life.

This has to be one of my favorite episodes in season six because it shows that this was a test for Starlight in learning to make a new friend and shows she's committed to changing who she is. This experience also taught Twilight not to be too quick to judge a pony like Trixie and allowed Starlight to decide for herself how to be a good friend. Then Trixie got a lesson on getting over her jealousy of Twilight and seeing that it was ruining her relationships.

I enjoyed the humor, and the dialogue was well-written. Also loved the dinner bit with Twilight and Princess Celestia, where she gets stuck with Cranky, Derpy, and Vinyl. Love how Cranky comments on Celestia's hair and asks her how she makes it wave.
