    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 A Hearth's Warming Tail · 8:52pm September 2nd

I don't really have much to say on this episode. It's basiclly the MLP spin on the Christmas Classic novel "A Christmas Carol" written by Charles Dickens. The story is centered on Starlight being told the tale by Twilight and then was shown the scenario with the various characters from the show acting as the characters from the novel. Playing the part of Scrooge, who wants to use a spell to remove the holiday forever. She then gets visited by three different ghosts with Christmas Past, played by Applejack, Ghost of Christmas Present by Pinkie Pie, and Ghost of Christmas Future by Luna. Basiclly the story shows that Starlight's character was taught badly at a boarding school about using magic to be used only for the benefit of Eqeustria and becomes fixed on the idea. Then the character goes through the three ghosts and, at the end, sees that if she casts the spell, she's dooming Equestria to its destruction. I liked the spin on the classic tale overall; the music was really good. I also liked the message about how we shouldn't be super fixated on working too hard and not having fun and being about sharing your life with friends and family. So, in the end a solid Christmas episode.
