Second Week of Pony #4

31 Mar

Ha! All caught up on the text reviews for the big master review list and chipping away at video reviews once more. Found a guy that has two review videos (I think) of pony fan fiction, but doesn’t give names or links in the description and I certainly am not watching a hour long video just to see what he covers. So just going to put the links here and here.

I’m not sure if the show is getting more worldbuilding elements as the seasons roll on or I’m just paying more attention (which I doubt) but it does seem like these lists are getting longer for each season.

Pony show canon Season 4 list:

Twilight learning to fly, both wings and legs moving
Summer sun celebration two days away
First summer sun celebration Celestia will enjoy, was always a reminder that she had to banish her sister and now it is a reminder of her sister returning
Sun and moon in the sky at the same time (Spike thinks it is weird, side of sky with sun is daytime, side of sky with moon is night with stars, blurry border between the two)
Officers of the royal guard take orders from royalty (Blueblood not mentioned)
Applejack reacts to infestation of spiked black vines as weeds
Rainbow Dash refers to the black spiky clouds as Everfree clouds in a familiar way (as if wild clouds from the Everfree forest were a occasional problem)
Touching unicorn horn disrupts active magic/telekinesis
Rarity reacts with puzzlement but not panic to spike-vines
