He makes good points...

Like i said, reason i dont care is because the character never grew on me all that much, compared to others...

I would be more interested in the character development of havin, lets say, trixie or lyra taking twilights place in the group...

The other darrin, you might say...

Normal, on an ensemble show. I'm guessing the dissonance is also part of why people are reacting.

Ironically, i think derpy will be back in the finale

And they'll apply the new-twilight change to her too

And then the fandom will explode for real like a nuclear bomb :lol:

For me,i don't care much untill after i see the episode.

Cadance was supposed to be another "the sky is falling" moment ("they are plugging in the pink-rpincess-toy"),and then we got

out of it,so i'd say that worked right

Well, I've seen what "change" happens to her now, suppose it was inevitable even though I tried to be careful, but I've got no idea how/when/where/why etc.

Is those things part of the argument, or is it just the fact that she changes that's stirring up trouble? Because while I do see that it's definitely a huge change, I'm also quite interested to see how it'll affect the story.

A think, to keep the whole shebang as neutral as possible that a couple of the common issues are:

a) First and foremost, it breaks down the relative balance between the Mane 6
b) Along the same line, the implied power and responsabily would break down the premise of the show.
c) On the same line, considering the age of the known precedents, Fridge logic kicks in.
d) It also smells at a blatant toy-driven move, which implies the change could be shoehorned in the worst way possible.

a) Yeah a bit, though technically she's already more powerful I'd think? Although I guess there's a social rank issue too. But then again, she's always been higher up the chain than the others too. To be honest, all this does is to make the difference more visible? (Not saying that's not a problem though, just saying there's always been at least some imbalance).
- On a sidenote, I'd love to see Rarity use/develop her magic more!

b) That's true, though do we really know how these things work? Could be a long road from just changing to reaching any significant increase in power.
- Though to be fair, I don't know if these things are already known and I just don't know because I've been avoiding the topic. :roll:

c) See above, sort of.

d) That could easily get ugly, yeah. I caaaaaan see the change working out okay, but only if done right. Let's hope for the best, I guess.

This one had me in stitches. I've been raiding derpybooru for a couple of days and there are quite a few gems out there...

EDIT: Also - Klaud got me in stitches AGAIN.

Wait, does that mean I exploded...
and then exploded AGAIN?
Can I explode twice?

Heads up! New 4koma coming up later today.

Got the basic typesetting, but I still need to run the first translation thru my other Chinese friend.

Your edit looked so authentic, like "spur-of-the-moment-joke".
And I found that fun :)

I'm worried and curious about the path the show will take. This is a really big moment that is coming up, and it can go, well, pretty much any way.

They could make a "finisher" arc, wrapping up things left and right, or just keep calm and carry on... Who knows?

Bought #1 online and received it within a week. Got #2 locally. Expect to get #3 locally, if not, placing order for my Amy Webberson variant cover, featuring Gangnam ponies.

I try to go for the covers that have Rarity on it, because she's best pony
