AUTHOR’S NOTE: I’m a straight white dude, so anything I say here should probably be taken with a grain of salt. If anything in this piece is incorrect or offensive, then I sincerely apologize and will take steps to correct it. There are so many great resources to look at (several I’ll list at the end of this) which should be taken into consideration along with what I’m saying here. Rainbow Rocks has just come out in theaters and is generally receiving positive reviews. However, I’m not here to talk about the quality of the film (look forward to that!), but instead to talk about one moment in it.
Ugh… School work is piling up, and having so little free time has sapped my motivation to write an Equestria Uncovered on a weekly (or even monthly) basis. If only there was something happening soon to reinvigorate my passion for writing about ponies.
Diamond Tiara and Silver spoon. Do two names in MLP bring up more hatred them theirs? Sure Discord bent the world to his twisted whims and Nightmare Moon tried to destroy all plant life by bringing eternal night, but these two are really mean! They’re immediately more relatable as antagonists because we’ve all probably dealt with people like this before who just like to mess with us for whatever reason they can come up with. That being said, is there something about these characters to make them redeemable? Should we, as fans, hold a mirror up to ourselves whenever we start hating on these two? Well there’s only one way to find out, and that’s to keep reading!
Who out there is ready to do some crusading? Will I get my Cutie Mark in writing? I sure as hell hope not. If this is supposed to be my super special talent, then that says a lot about how bad I am at most things. Anyway, the Cutie Mark Crusaders are pretty much the B team for the series. Whenever we aren’t focusing on the Mane 6 or Spike, these ponies take the forefront and have given us some really great episodes.
Cheerilee and Berry Punch. Wouldn’t these two be perfect for a 90’s style sitcom? The earnest sister with a frustrating job and the snarky sister with a drinking problem. WACKEYNESS ENSUES!! All kidding aside, there’s something about these two that makes them very endearing despite how little we know about Cheerilee from canon, and how one dimensional the portrayal of Berry Punch has been in fan made content.
Of course we get to the Zebra of rhyme! I’m sure all of you are saying that it’s about time! I’ll finally discuss her place in the show. I only hope that this article doesn’t blow.
We’re finally getting to one of the Mane 6. Just so you know, I’m not doing all of them at once. I’m gonna spread them out, and do each character as I see fit. For now let’s focus on this week’s topic, the one and only Pinkie Pie! Personally, I think that, despite the show not always knowing what to do with her, there is so much depth that can be minded from this unique equine, and it makes her one of the more compelling characters to discuss.
