Jesus, the mods on ponychan really don't know what the hell they're moderating. It's ridiculous.
Ponychan? I’d call that development a major Internet storm if I ever heard of one, if what I learned there is anything to go by. At least the main characters themselves shouldn’t have too much difficulty determining their next adventure. The general reaction from the fans proved genuinely shocking running parallel to the events of the show, with the message found in the subtitle, as profoundly simple as I could imagine. The characters themselves are quite varied, with Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy’s personalities and experiences matching my own interests more readily than Rarity and Rainbow Dash’s, but I genuinely enjoy watching all of them, as well as Celestia and Luna, if in their own separate ways. The format for the first two episodes captured my attention in setting the tone for the rest of the story, perhaps summarized in Celestia's decree.:
Celestia: Why so glum, my faithful student? Are you not happy that your quest is complete and you can return to your studies in Canterlot?
Twilight: (looking glumly downward) That's just it. Just when I learned how wonderful it is to have friends, I have to leave them.
Celestia: (smiling in understanding) Spike, take a note, please. "I, Princess Celestia, hereby decree that the unicorn Twilight Sparkle shall take on a new mission for Equestria. She must continue to study the magic of friendship. She must report to me her findings from her new home in Ponyville."
(Twilight's new friends gathering around her and cheering)
Twilight: Oh, thank you, Princess Celestia. I'll study harder than ever before.
One can guess how quickly I accepted this show into my memory once I finished those first two episodes, with Pinkie Pie's brand of exuberance closing the event rather handily... and the fans' stories already embedded there, as well.
