So the canon ships are GallusxSmolder and SandbarxYona. All aboard!

kztxl7 #2 · 2 weeks ago · · 1 ·

Yona x Sandbar.

I can dig it.

Haven't seen it yet, but synopsis seems rather predictable. Probably will end up making herself something she's not with the makeover and then no ones happy until she just acts like herself. If I'm lucky then I'm incorrect about this prediction.

*Slow dance begins*
*Yona trips*
So it begins

Ocellus x Sandbar is dead!

oh this was adorable, and this ship is sailing really well.

5057102
you are incorrect. somewhat. its more like she's so yona that she cant pony for long.

I loved Rarity resigning to fabulous bouncing at the end.

P.S. Why was Spike dressed as Spike?

Remember everybody, unless Zimmerwald wants to have a candid conversation, ignore them.

Oh, this episode is gonna bolster the Yonabar fanart.

I liked the whole My Fair Lady motif, complete with a memorable quote ("I think she's got it!")

Yona was very adorable throughout the episode. That, and Spike as a Deadmau5 parody was funny

5057111 That, too

5057099
so who's ocellus' ship?

Oh, I can't WAIT to see the shippers go nuts with THIS episode...

All in all, a decent "Be Yourself" episode, 7 out of 10.

YONA IS BEST YAK!

5057111
I think that was supposed to be a reference to DeadMau5.

Yeah, it was cute, but I feel like they just introduced a new ship that won't have any time to really sail. I do like it, though.

And the mighty ESS YONABAR sets sail

5057116
Well, if you prescribe to only in-group shipping, that just leaves Silverstream I guess

5057117
i think the shows writers beat them to it. did you see the shooting star? their destined for marriage.

My Fair Yona, huh? And free shipping fodder for the fanfic writers. I approve. :pinkiesmile:

This episode has endeared me to Yona like no other one has before. Sure, it's a familiar moral that the show has tackled before, but there's enough nuance in the execution to make it stand out. Also, Yona really stole the show with how adorably awkward she is, even after her lessons from the Mane 6.

And, of course, I can't forget the not-so-subtle shipping fodder. I've seen plenty of Young Six shipping stories on this site, but I think this is the first time the writers actually hinted that something more might be going on between these characters. It's really sweet. :heart:

...

Now I'm curious if there's ever been an example of a bovine and an equine crossbreeding. This fandom make my mind go to very weird places sometimes. :derpyderp2:

5057121
im up for anyone as long as it makes sense. i just cant think of anyone besides maybe gallus.

OMG, this episode was so amazing, everything I've ever wanted out of the non-adventure half of the series. Great little visual touches, all the characters were there, so adorable. Plus a good moral to boot. I have such a big smile on my face right now. 11/10, would die of cuteness again.

In my opinion, the first "meh" episode of the season, though I was not entirely surprised when I read the synopsis. Also, how in Equestria did we get an "official" Yona/Sandbar ship before Gallus/Silverstream?

Honestly, my favorite parts were the Spike DeadMau5 outfit and Silverstream's "You look weird!" expression. Not much more to say from my end.

5057123
maybe a hefty Big Mac like character? with the strength of a yak and the grace of a pony?

5057128
I meant an actual bovine/equine crossbreed in real life.

5057129
ah. that would look weird. tried looking it up and got nothing but photoshoped pics.

My thoughts are pretty simple about the episode: Predictable, yet adorable.

Cute Yona is cute :pinkiehappy:

Such an ADORABLE episode! Sandbar x Yona favorite student six ship now. ^.^ Sure it was a predictable episode, but I think this is one of my favorite episodes from this season. Mostly because of the Yona awkward adorableness. <3

I mean if you start getting into group ships and polygamy, they're all obviously going to all get together in one big harem for Smolder

The scenes with Rarity were quite well done.

5057136
she did her best. well maybe more than her best.

Let me guess; he doesn't like the make-over and prefers her usual style?

I seriously hope I'm wrong.

For me personally, I need an episode that really spotlights Silverstream.

Right now she's the only one that feels meh to me.

5057138
you are. its more like her clumsyness keeps her from being what she thinks she needs to be. sandbar was ok with her dressing up.

How does this bode for Sandcellus?

5057142
took a torpedo to the rudder. its dead in the water.

Pegasisters!
Bronies!
All MLP fans alike!

Prepare the ship cannons! We fire at noon!

I'm going to admit it. I'm watching this episode as I type this (I had it recorded) and DANG! Sandbar's friends are shipping them hard. I love their teasing.

As soon as Yona stepped on her dress, I knew this was going downhill.



And...now everypony wants to learn Yona's dance...... I hope Twilight has school insurance for both her students and for property damage. Yona on her OWN was creating a small earthquake and now the entire student body is doing it...

DJ Scales and Tail - Someone please make a story based on this.

*Plays Chopin's Funeral March*

5057148
you know.... i understood that because of a video game.

5057150
You could always choose Moonlight Sonata.

5057152
beautiful song. first heard it in eternal sonata.

5057111
Because it's been a running gag that he always dresses up as himself since Luna Eclipsed.

5057158
eternal sonata? its a 360 jrpg based on chopins songs. or am i misunderstanding things and youre talking about womething else? if so sorry, it tends to happen a lot with me.

> Lie down
> Try not to Yak
> Yak a lot

5057164
perfect description.

I was so excited when I saw that initial blush! I hadn't considered any ships between the students, but when I got a look at Sandbar and Yona, I couldn't stop myself from loving how adorable it was!
On a completely not really unrelated note, I have the musical numbers of My Fair Lady stuck in my head.

Alright, I'm gonna be low-key honest, ever since season 8 I had an inkling little feeling that an episode like this would happen.

Looks like I was right about the YonaXSandbar ship (Yanbar) or (Sona)

I ship it!!

“You’re so well spoken.”

Uh, codeswitch much?

She's All Yak aka My Fair Yak aka Yakmalion

I think the writers wrote Sandbar like that just to mess with the fans. As someone who went to prom with a friend (we were never boyfriend/girlfriend), I know it's entirely possible to go to a school dance with someone without dating them. But I guess if that were the case, then Yona wouldn't have the motivation to try to change herself.

Actually, I think I take issue more with the contrived award at the end. "Sandbar, you lifted Yona's spirits out of our collective earshot! You win Best Couple!"

Animation limitations mean that Yona, Sandbar, and Rarity were the only three characters who actually got dressed up for the dance. So what was Rarity doing with all of those dresses at the beginning of the episode?

Now, the important question: What convoluted spelling does Spike use for his DJ name? sk4lesNtail, perhaps? Or maybe it requires some Ponish character that can't be replicated on our keyboards.

Sure, they are just 'friends'
this totally wasn't a shipping episode and the writers totally didn't do it on purpose :trixieshiftright:
