My explanation is that when Celestia used the Elements, she did so alone, and consequently they did not have enough power to purify Luna of her corruption, just enough to imprison her. In contrast, when the Mane 6 used them, the Elements were able to power themselves through their friendship, which as we all know is equivalent to Magic in Equestria.

 

Simply put, the Mane 6 put much more juice into their usage of the Elements.

I just realized that, in "Magic Duel," Trixie takes Pinkie's mouth and nose. Unfortunate implications?

I never understood why people got so mad about Princess Twilight. To judge her by her position and not her character seems kind of shallow. She's still Twilight, wings or no.

i definitely agree with this. celestia and luna were powerful enough to each use the elements but since neither were destined to wield them, their power couldn't be fully tapped. it was only when they found themselves in the hands (hooves?) of the mane six, the rightful bearers of the elements, that their power could be used to their full extent. this is because they were able to power the elements with friendship, an incredibly powerful and unique form of magic that even a pony like star swirl, who has created many intense and complex spells such as time travel, couldn't discover.

Pinkie Pie has risen a bit in my opinion since last time I touched upon this. At times she's impossible not to like, while other times she can be really annoying.

^ Easily one of the best episodes of the series. But maybe I think that because it gave off a really strong Scooby-Doo vibe (probably intentionally), which was my favorite show as a kid.

So as of today, my MLP/Doctor Who fanfiction, Dr. Hooves and the Broken Box, is finally complete and published. It's not perfect by any means, but I'm pretty proud of it all things considered.

 

Not sure when I'll get around to writing something else, but I do hope to do so eventually.

This seems to be the Celestia/Luna season so far.

 

This time around we learned that they put lots of secret passages in their castle for fun.  I can get behind that.

She can be a bit slow and annoying but I still love Pinkie Pie. She reminds me of Bubbles from PPG. I was hoping the Dark Unicorn thingy would chase them away but I was kinda dissapointed when he turned out to be Pinkie Pie.

 

I'm still wondering what Princess Luna would look like when she's a fully grown mare.

My headcanon is that being trapped as NMM for so long made her atrophy a bit.  It's how I reconcile her appearance in S1E2 with her new look since Luna Eclipsed.

True, she did atrophy, but she's a born alicorn. She'll probably take longer to grow than most mortal ponies. Fanart that shows baby Cadence is really starting to irritate me, now that The Crystal Heart Spell revealed her to be originally a pegasus.

I wonder what Celestia would like like corrupted. A pony of flame?

Hey, did anyone see that iTunes and Google Play have the series' official soundtrack available for download?

 

It only has songs from seasons 1 and 2, but they sound excellent. I've downloaded Becoming Popular and Love is in Bloom and they both sound fabulous.

 If you do use a spoiler tag you could identify what episode number or numbers you're spoiling. That way people like me can participate in new episode discussion without the risk of accidentally spoiling future episodes for ourselves. ;)  Personally I like to give each episode about one and a half to two weeks before discussing without spoilers, but it's up to you.

Was that added for the album? When I heard that, I thought it must have just been covered up by dialogue in the original episode and thus ignored by the people who rip songs from the show for download. But if it was newly added just for the album, that's maybe even cooler.

I think that's the part where Cadance and Shining are dancing.  Pinkie's sudden summoning of Vinyl makes them seem separate in the episode itself.

As much of a bland, flat, one-dimensional, boring, superfluous character Flash Sentry is, I realized there's one thing I liked about him. After the Humane Six defeat Sunset Shimmer, and he asks her to dance, he's biting his lip and looks all nervous. That had a hint of humanness in it. I liked that part.

So that latest episode, am I right? I think it might be the best episode of this new season so far (and not just because it set such a high bar for this season's songs). I like that it's the first episode to deal directly with Scootaloo's inability to fly, which is one of her primary character traits but has up until now been used largely as a punchline. It did feel a bit formulaic at moments, but the story was good, and the song was good, and the message was good. An all-around awesome episode, if you ask me.

This was just an all-around great episode. Right off the bat, I loved that the CMC are doing something other than stupid, random things in rapid succession. It got old fast. Also, if you remember in "Call of the Cutie," Rainbow Dash was the one who originally told Apple Bloom to do that. Having her be a genuine voice of reason shows great growth in Dashie as a character. Also, she plays off of Harshwinny hilariously. The song was great, as they always are. The reprise was an unexpected surprise. The moral was well-executed and didn't seem forced at all.

 

If there's one thing I could criticize it about, it's pacing. I don't usually notice pacing, when other bronies say an episode's was good, bad, or otherwise. I often found myself saying, "Huh? We're at [whatever part we're at] already?" But then, pacing is something I'm really bad at appraising, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Overall, 9/10. One of the best.

I don't like when the songs are so repetitive, but it seemed like a decent episode overall.  Didn't like it as much as the previous few, though.

So any thoughts on if Scoots can walk on clouds? I'm inclined to believe so, since "Sonic Rainboom" implies Twilight's spell for wings and her spell for cloud-walking are totally unrelated.

 

I didn't have this thought until right now, and it probably won't get used, but who here thinks there could be an episode about Scootaloo becoming Fluttershy's apprentice? Fluttershy doesn't seem to fly that much in daily life.

 

Come to think of it, did Scootaloo ever go to the flight camp Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash did? Fluttershy's flashbacks of her being bullied imply she was slightly older than Scootaloo is in the present (remembering that Flutters is a year older than Pinkie, whom has Scootaloo's proportions in her flashback). Maybe she can't fly because, for some reason, she never had proper training.

Scoots hung on a cloud for a second in "Sleepless in Ponyville", so I'm pretty sure she can also walk on them.

 

It has also been clearly implied by Scootaloo in the latest episode that her problem was that her wings just have not grown (yet?) -- but maybe training would still help.

Come to think of it, did Scootaloo ever go to the flight camp Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash did? Fluttershy's flashbacks of her being bullied imply she was slightly older than Scootaloo is in the present (remembering that Flutters is a year older than Pinkie, whom has Scootaloo's proportions in her flashback). Maybe she can't fly because, for some reason, she never had proper training.

Scoots hung on a cloud for a second in "Sleepless in Ponyville", so I'm pretty sure she can also walk on them.
 
It has also been clearly implied by Scootaloo in the latest episode that her problem was that her wings just have not grown (yet?) -- but maybe training would still help.

Personally, I like and relate to the idea that Scootaloo might actually be disabled. She might fly one day, just like a dyslexic person can learn to read, but I think it'd be a disservice to that aspect of her character if it just took some training or time to grow to make her into a "normal" pegasus. How would a disabled person who identifies with Scootaloo feel if the "solution" to the disability was presented as "growing up and not being disabled anymore"? Rather, I think it should continue to present a challenge even if she does finally manage to achieve flight.

From what we've seen, Scootaloo's wings are plenty powerful. She just can't get them to provide the right amount of lift. But she can still do amazing things with them, and shouldn't be pushing herself to fly just so she can "fit in".

I don't mean it would fix the problem completely if she went to a camp now. I mean it gets harder to learn the older a pony gets. That might detract from the parallelism to real-world birth disabilities.

"What kind of pedophile would hang out on BZP? The only people left on here are

nostalgic 18-year-olds. He'd be the laughingstock of the pedophile community."
