post #91 of 694

Finally got around to watching A Canterlot Wedding. I didn't get a sense of it being disney-esque though, perhaps it could be because it followed or took things from The Hero's Journey format? Still a great episode. I prefer it to the Discord two-parter. I loved the part where the changling was changing in front of Pinkie Pie lol. Btw, if Twilight was so close to her brother, how come we never heard of him? I know she said she started hanging out with him less and less, but to lose all contact? Which brings me to another question: How come no pony has parents? Just brothers and sisters. I believe Pinkie Pie lives with her parents, but I don't ever recall it being stated that they were indeed her parents.

We never heard about him before because he was probably shoe-horned in after the rest of the episodes were done. Lauren Faust came up with the concept for the episode before the season aired, but it's reasonable to assume Studio B/DHX or Hasbro altered it. It's all but confirmed that Hasbro did alter Cadence. Faust original had her as a simple unicorn, but Hasbro wanted to sell more princess toys.

 

There have been plenty of parents shown. Pinkie Pie lives with Mr. and Mrs. Cake who aren't her parents. Though they do have two foals as of season 2 episode 13. Pinkie Pie lived on a rock farm (supposedly) and we see her parents in season 1 episode 23. We see Twilight's parents in the same episode, and they make an appearance during the wedding. We meet Rarity and Sweetie Belle's parents in season 2 episode 5.

I was talking about general continuity, but of course he was shoe-horned in. As far as parents, I haven't paid much attention I guess. I forgot about Twilight being sent off to school and Rarity's parents with their Canadian accents. I wasn't including Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake though.

Relatives are never mentioned until they are relevant to plot or are major characters. When sweetie bell was first introduced we had no idea she was rarity's sister until stare Master where it was relevant to the plot of that episode.

I could ask about fluttershy and rainbow dash's parents. Every other pony's parents have been dealt with in some way (aj is missing in action, wasn't even there in childhood flashback). You see it all the time in all sorts of media.

Do what everyone else in the community does. When in doubt, assume they died in some horrible tragedy.

 

I wonder how involved the typical pegasi parents are in raising their children. The fact every pegasi gets shipped off to flight camp at an early age is interesting. Something about this might crop up when/if Scootaloo ever gets her own episode. She's one of the few pegasi frequently seen in Ponyville, we don't know her parents, and she can't fly yet despite being around the age RD and Fluttershy were at flight camp.

That is already my headcanon. Though I think they will never touch on it. That is just my opinion. They will be left more ambiguous than Arnold's parents from Hey! Arnold.

Hmm, not really surprised to find this type of thread here.

Probably just a little surprised that it doesn't have nearly as much posts as on any other forum.

The old thread used to have a lot more posts, and was relatively active.

This thread is only a two weeks old, and I'm sure it will become more active in the future.

Ah, well makes sense. I often see threads with like hundreds or even thousands of pages. Not sure how this forum handles those.

Seems a lot more tame though redface.gif

Yeah this thread isn't that old, the other one had a lot more posts. No clue why it was locked though.

What have you done!?

How dare you ruin the image of the majestic Fluttershy in by humanizing her appearance.

Credit where credit is due, those were actually good cosplays. Unlike, say, these guys.

Also, I had to go to Walmart today to get milk anyway, so I bought my Twilight. Now all I need are some fake ears and a neckbeard and I'll be set.

They can rape the image of Pinkie Pie and Rainbowdash all they want, as long as they don't touch my beloved Fluttershy.
