Second week of Pony #5

01 Apr

Finished! I have now watched the entire five season of pony. Except for the second half of What About Discord? Which I decided to skip because I was really dragging my feet watching it and without the time deadline there was really no real reason to watch it if I wasn’t enjoying it. Anyway, was interesting trying to keep track of all the neat canon stuff like minor characters, magic, places, etc. I think the most interesting bit was realizing that the fashion industry is pretty much all Earth Ponies. The only unicorns involved in the fashion industry are two in Canterlot and Rarity herself. Every other pony related to the fashion industry is a Earth Pony.

Also just finished watching The Crystaling. Not bad, some good moments. Though I do have one thing to complain about. The credits. Mr and Mrs Sparkle? Really? That’s what you put for their names in the credits. Really? Also seeing the new baby for the first time (I avoided all promo stuff I could) made me think of Shub-Cadurath.

Pony Show Canon season 5

Castle Throne cutie marks light up the first time they sit in them (table forms up out of the floor when they are all sitting)
Table has detailed map of all of Equestria (looks to be illusion)
Flashing cutie marks is signal the map is calling them somewhere cutie marks float to place on the map they should go (why? The mysterious force of the rainbow commands it!)

Starlight covers/conceals cutie mark with makeup
Interrupted friends speech

Starlight Glimmer’s magic seems to have pretty good range (grabs jars before they hit the ground from a long way up)

Flashing cutie marks success signal
Angel bunny gets kicked into a mud puddle (I watched it twice, because only crazy people watch that shot once)

Princess Luna can bring ponies into another pony’s dreams

Rainbow Dash’s hair is styled really nice
Princess Celestia calls Discord/Smooze Gala the most fun ever
Griffonstone (the very heart of the gryphon kingdom)
In ancient times the gryphons were as greedy as dragons
King Grover found the mysterious Idol of Borius (legend says the idol was made from the golden dust of sunsets blown across the mountains by the north wind)
Possessing the idol filled the Gryphon’s hearts with pride

Twilight likes vanilla ice cream, red balloons, dancing, but is afraid of quesadillas
Pinkie’s parents aren’t nearly old enough for a 50th anniversary party

Smokey mountains (neither Fluttershy or Twilight have been there, not much information on them, single book Twilight could find says they have the most beautiful valley in all of Equestria)
