Also, Larson's back everyone!

4631422

Yes! I'm so glad to hear that. I know a lot of people complain about him but I find his episodes very enjoyable.

Awesome to see the show coming back today!

Shit, the show is becoming self aware. RUN!

Why do I know this will turn out more nostalgic than it should be?

4631422
REALLY? My favourite writer returned? AND HE DID SOMETHING META? I don't know if you've realised it yet, but Larson is the god of writing meta. I'M HYPED.:pinkiehappy:

Wait, is that episode today?

Or: "How Twilight brought the waifu war to equestria"

Why do I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those cheesy clip shows?

Well, time to laugh at the writers laughing at us...again.

"Friendship isn't always easy, but there's no doubt it's worth fighting for!"

Whohoo, the streams are empty. This episode really is going out really quietly...

Starlight: What's that?

Twilight: It's this plot device that we used for a season. Kind of like the letters I wrote for a season, then everyone wrote for the following two seasons, and the map, which we don't really use at all anymore, and...wait...how long have you been here again?

"Twilight was better before she got wings!"

That ep had its ups and downs.

So...nothing was solved at the end...ok then:rainbowhuh:

The old Discord would be proud of Twilight for causing such disharmony.

Biglulu #22 · 1 week ago · · 2 ·

10/10 ep, 10/10 lesson.

This episode was meta, but not in the good kind of way like "Slice of Life" or "Stranger Than Fanfiction".

This episode in a nutshell.

From: MLP
To: The Fans

"Everybody is flawed! We get it! Shut the fuck up and enjoy the show!"

Also, I imagined Canterlot's newspaper would be called the Tribune, not the Chronicle. I've had to retcon one of my stories to fit it.

Holy guacamole, maximum metahumour in this one. Even the song failed to deus ex machina the crowd into submission! :rainbowlaugh:

4631497 They're learning to deal with having super fans and critics, so maybe not a total loss. :derpytongue2:

Everyone is praising this episode

I'm just here cloping waiting for it to be posted on dailymotion

Hey look. They ponified the fandom. lol

And one would think the world would have known about the Mane Six well before this episode.

EddWar #31 · 1 week ago · · 6 ·

Excellent episode, literally a slap to the fandom. :trollestia:

I just saw this episode and it just give an idea for a new villain!

Flisky #33 · 1 week ago · · ·

Slice of Life was a love letter to the fandom.
This episode was a restraining order. :twilightsheepish:

:rainbowlaugh: This episode was freaking hilarious! Leave it to M.A. Larson to write another episode satirising the brony fandom.

4631422 This will probably be his last episode since he said in an interview that he has no plans to return to the show due to how much it's changed.

4631486 :rainbowlaugh:

4631502 Why do you say that? I thought this episode was extremely funny.

10/10 Also a a greeting to BronyCon.

Ikr! Every time one of the ponies opened their mouths I couldn't believe how much they sounded like bronies!

4631552 Which is why I found this episode so hilarious!

4631507

But rarity was still being boycotted and ponies were still trying to join applejack's family :rainbowlaugh:

Are we really that bad? I mean I allways loved the show the way it was despite the flaws. in fact i love it more for its flaws, they just make it better.

4631554
Same here! Especially the part where the ponies complained about Fluttershy learning the same lessons over and over again. Tbh Fluttershy's lessons revolve around different types/ subjects is shyness. But I may be a bit biased Fluttershy is my fav of the mane 6.

Somehow I knew that it would end that way.

I think 4631537 summed this up in the best way possible. This was meta to the extreme, and I'm pretty sure I missed a minute or two because I found a YT version less than a half-hour after the episode aired. Guess I'll need to watch it on DM later.

Pretty sure my favorite 'complaint' was "Twilight was better before she got wings!" solely for the fact that that's the one I've heard the most. But I'm actually very surprised that none of them mentioned Applejack's "I didn't learn anything! I was right all along!" entry. Oh well. Oh right, that was a letter. Mah bad.:facehoof:
Still found this one massively amusing.

4631558
as individuals?
No, we are not that terrible, as you can control your own behavior.

As a whole fandom?
We are WAY worse than what was portrayed in the episode.

Worst episode ever.

Why so much hate on Rarity? She is as hard working as Applejack who is begin loved so much here (just to be clear, I like all of them, as well Starlight, Sunset and Spike). And really, I would love to see Discord in this episode after all, if we have discussions on who is the best pony, and other fandom things, why not shiping wars?
EDIT: One more thing about poor Rarity treatment in this episode, I love her! And yet she is like opposite of me, I'm tomboy who hates makeup and julery, rerly dress up, and feel the best in some old sweater, don't go on fancy parties or have any intrest on fashion, sawing. I'm the youngest in my family and yet, her sweet character, drama queen antics and passion makes me her fan.

That AJ bit was a letter, not in the journal. :P

I wrote up a bit more on my blog page, but basically we had 3 threads here, 2 of them meta. The one pointed out most is the fandom (Fluttershy and I think Rarity's experiences, some of the random comments), and wrt Flutters' (which fans also apply to RD, actually), I've been saying basically their response for years... Of course, realism does not equate to drama, but in an episodic show I think it works personally.

The other two were the business model ("It wasn't meant for marketing!"... essentially Twilight's thread) and the just plain silly (RD, AJ, and Pinkie's threads). AJ being too eager to please doesn't come up all that much now I think about it, so it didn't seem like a riff here, just something silly they did where she couldn't turn down anyone. Drawing questions in that Granny Smith is the head of the family, but I digress. I like to think Granny told everyone to git once AJ was out of earshot.

It's weird that spike didn't even exist in this ep
