MLP Controversy Meme V3
Alright, folks. I've finished Season 7 and seen the movie - time for Round 3 on :icondeecat98:'s MLP controversy meme! :D (Big Grin) 

Favorite Character: Fluttershy
I LOVE how much she's grown lately.
Honorable mentions: Apple Bloom, Rarity, Big Mac, Applejack, Countess Coloratura, Sweetie Belle, etc.

Despised Character: Juniper Montage
If you thought Starlight had petty motives for growing villainous, think again. Same applies for how quickly and convolutedly Juniper was "redeemed". Eye Roll
Dishonorable mentions: Svengallop, Prince Rutherford, Sour Sweet, etc.

Favorite Season: Season 4
This truly was a pinnacle for the series.
Honorable mentions: Season 7, Season 2

Despised Season: Season 6
It did have a few good ones; but when they struck out, they really struck out.
Dishonorable mentions: Season 5, Season 3

Most Overrated Character: Trixie
Seven seasons in and she's still as irritating as Tartarus.
Dishonorable mentions: Background Ponies (especially Derpy and Doctor Whooves), Soarin, Iron Will, Sunburst, Thorax, Pinkie Pie, Princess Luna, etc.

Most Underrated Character: Princess Celestia
I honestly can't understand why she's gotten so much hate! :-? (Confused) 
Honorable mentions: Rarity, Spike, Zecora, Flurry Heart, Little Strongheart, Applejack, Flash Sentry, etc.

Favorite Villain: Tempest Shadow
Basically villainous Starlight done right - you can't help but feel for her once she reveals her backstory, let alone when the Storm King stabs her in the back.
Honorable mentions: Stygian/the Pony of Shadows, the Flim Flam Brothers, Daybreaker, Ahuizotl, etc.

Despised Villain: Juniper Montage
A complete waste of a villain. Again, call Starlight's motives petty if you will; but at least it's easier to sympathize with her losing a close friend in such a short period of time, than it is to sympathize with Juniper wanting a lead role simply because she's the director's niece.
Dishonorable mentions: Midnight Sparkle, Trixie, Wind Rider, Principal Cinch, etc.

Favorite Song: "Rainbow"
The music and lyrics are stunningly beautiful, and have tons of meaning for each of the Mane 6 and their trials and tribulations. :happycry 
Honorable mentions: "You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song", "The Magic Inside", "We'll Make Our Mark", "Flawless", "Open Up Your Eyes", etc.

Despised Song: "Unleash the Magic"
Painful to watch - where do the Shadowbolts get off being so cruel to Sci-Twi?! 
Dishonorable mentions: "Bad Counter Spell", "Snips and Snails' Rap", "Awesome As I Wanna Be", "Stop the Bats", "The Spectacle", etc.

Favorite Episode: "A Health of Information"
This is by far Fluttershy's best starring role to date. Her determination was mind-blowing, I felt genuinely scared for both her and Zecora, and I could empathize with the overwhelming guilt that was driving her to the breaking point.
Honorable mentions: "The Perfect Pear", "Flutter Brutter", "Hard to Say Anything", "The Mane Attraction", "Shadow Play", etc.

Despised Episode: "Fame and Misfortune"
Cruel, cynical, and convoluted. Who did those so-called "fans" think they were?! Stare 
Dishonorable mentions: "Not Asking for Trouble", "Putting Your Hoof Down", "Secrets and Pies", "Boast Busters", "28 Pranks Later", etc.

Well, that's it. Feel free to comment. :)
I do not own MLP.

That evening, as promised, Fluttershy arrived at my apartment. I didn't hear her knock at first: I was too busy taking rapid, furious swings at my inflatable punching bag. It was only when she knocked again and called my name - and when Tali barked out a welcome - that I was snapped out of my brief rage. "Coming!" I cried anxiously, and rushed to the door, simultaneously trying to regain my composure.

"You...box?" quizzed Fluttershy, once she had caught sight of my punching bag.

"Not as a sport," I explained wearily. "I just use it to vent my bottled-up anger every now and then."

"I'm not surprised. Your landlady said you were screaming and shouting at the top of your lungs earlier - you even scared the neighbors!"

"Yeah. In all honesty, I'm surprised she didn't give me the boot."

"But, why?" Fluttershy persisted. "I mean, you're the last pony I'd expect to have fits of rage, even that one time last Saturday!"

"I know," I replied, shuddering painfully at the memory. "But you'd be surprised, Fluttershy - I'm not always as even-tempered as I seem."

Fluttershy winced, as if she too were recalling a painful memory. "Well, I know what that feels like," she said sadly.

"What do you mean?"

"I'll tell you at Twilight's."

"The castle?!" I exclaimed.

"Of course," replied Fluttershy. "I think it's about time we all had a heart-to-heart talk about the way Rainbow Dash has been treating you."

"She won't be there; will she? Seeing her is the last thing I need."

"No; it'll be just you, Twilight, Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie, and me. Oh! And maybe Spike and/or Starlight."

"You...arranged all that...for me?" I asked in disbelief. "I'm...I'm touched!"

Fluttershy hugged me gently. "It's nothing," she said modestly. "We're supposed to spread friendship across Equestria - we might as well help our friends back home!"

I went silent in deep thought; then, as we headed off into the gathering evening, I began to sing softly:

"No one could ever know me.
No one could ever see me.
Seems you're the only one who knows
What it's like to be me."


Fluttershy caught on and sang the next portion:

"Someone to face the day with,
Make it through all the rest with."


Here, I interjected:

"Someone I'll always laugh with."

"Even at my worst, I'm best with you...yeah."

We finished together, exchanged awkward glances, then laughed out loud. "This is the best I've felt all week!" I said, grinning uncontrollably; but my smile vanished just as quickly as it had appeared, as I wondered how I would get by in weeks to come...




Less than twenty minutes later, I was seated with the Elements of Harmony - minus one - in the throne room of the Castle of Friendship. Each of the young mares had her own throne with her cutie mark inscribed into it, while Spike had his own smaller chair parallel to Twilight's. Just for tonight, they had an extra chair set up specially for me - "Celestia knows what Rainbow'd say if she knew you'd used hers!" remarked Applejack.

"My sentiments exactly," I said grimly.

Now, as I settled in and glanced around the Round Table, my namesake mind was racing: where should I start? Rarity could see my apprehension, and was quick to reassure me. "Take all the time you need, dear - we're all ears!"

Pinkie giggled. "All ears! Wouldn't that be wacky?!"

"It's just an expression, Pinkie," Twilight explained dryly.

"It'd still be wacky!" said Pinkie in a singsong voice.

This brought a hearty chuckle out of me - Pinkie flashed Twilight an innocent smile, as if to say, "Toldja so!"

I took a deep breath. "Well," I began slowly, "as I'm sure you all know, Rainbow Dash and I haven't exactly gotten off on the right hoof. I wish we could be friends, believe me; but it's hard to make friends with somepony who's always bragging or making wisecracks or putting you down."

"She's always had a rather sharp tongue," admitted Rarity, "and a knack for conceitedness and impatience; but she's usually not this bad."

"Great," I groaned. "Even on a good day, she's a carbon copy of my younger brother, only ten times worse!"

"Hang on a sec," Spike interjected. "How does your brother come into all this?"

"I just see a lot of him in Rainbow Dash," I explained. "Mandolin Wind has always seemed to exceed in things I struggle with: socializing, dating, and a way with words - something he all too often takes for granted. He put me through Tartarus when we were growing up, and he still has a bit of an edge to him even now; but more often than not, when I complain to my parents about how much he's pushing my buttons, they just tell me the usual: 'That's just Mandolin being Mandolin - he'll grow out of it!'

"Come to think of it," I went on, "my dad's always had a rather sarcastic, patronizing side too, not to mention a frightening temper."

Fluttershy let out a small whimper, and shrank back a little in her seat.

"I know," I replied with a twinge of shame. "It's safe to say I've inherited that temper - and it's something I've had to struggle with for years now. I find any anger very upsetting, even if it's my own, and especially if it's aggressive - that could be another reason why I feel so wary around Dash."

Fluttershy let out a sad sigh. "I've been there and beyond myself," she said, hesitating a bit. "You...you wouldn't believe it; but...I turned extremely nasty once."

Rarity cast her a solemn frown. "You mean that dreadful fiasco with Iron Will; don't you?"

"Mm-hmm!" squeaked Fluttershy, in a voice I could hardly hear.

"Who's Iron Will?"

With Rarity and Pinkie's encouragement, Fluttershy painstakingly told me of how she had grown tired of other ponies walking all over her, and attended a traveling minotaur's seminar on how to become more assertive. The only flaw in the solution was Iron Will's philosophy, which was basically this: if somepony inconveniences you, let 'em have it. That being said, it didn't take long for things to go from bad to worse.

"...A-and then," Fluttershy faltered tearfully, as Rarity stood by her side and rubbed her shoulder comfortingly, "I - I hurt my own friends! I told Rarity a-and Pinkie their lives were meaningless! I-I w-wish I hadn't, but I d-did! I DI-HI-HI-HI-HI-HIIIIIIIIIIIIID!!!!!!!!!!!" Unable to say any more, she burst into uncontrollable sobs. I could feel my heart break just watching her - what she'd said just couldn't be true!

After a few moments, Fluttershy managed to compose herself, dry her tears, and take a few deep breaths. "I'm so sorry you had to see me like that, Endless," she sniffled, "but I still regret what I did to this day - even after I righted my wrong and started asserting myself more appropriately, the guilt's never really gone away."

"Don't beat yourself up, Fluttershy," I replied gently, trotting over and hugging her. "You realized you went off the rails and you made up for it, and that's all that matters - unlike some," I finished darkly.

"You've got a point, Endless," admitted Twilight. "I don't think Rainbow Dash often realizes how hurtful her words can be."

"Kinda funny, isn't it?" mused Spike. "How she dishes it out one moment, then showboats herself the next?"

"Kinda sorta," I agreed bitterly. "Unabashedly putting her peers down while building herself up. The question is: why am I suddenly her favorite target?"

"Well," said Twilight thoughtfully, "if I know anything about Rainbow, it's that she tends to lash out more when she's under a lot of stress, or if she feels challenged."

"Tell me about it!" piped up Pinkie. "She blew a fuse at me just for saying the word 'hibernate'!"

I blinked in confusion. "Huh?"

"Long story short: Dashie's pet tortoise was gonna hibernate during winter; she didn't want him to," Pinkie replied quickly.

"That ain't a patch on how she acted when we had to save the Crystal Empire," Applejack continued. "Barkin' at the locals fer a way ta protect the city, scarin' 'em away from the fake Crystal Heart while Twilight 'n' Spike tracked down the real one..."

"Trying to guilt me into jousting with her," put in Fluttershy, rubbing her arm and shivering slightly.

"She guilted you?!" I repeated, stunned.

"Yes," Fluttershy replied unhappily. "She said if the Empire's fate mattered to me, I would go on jousting - and then she turned right around and said she had her reputation to think of."

"Oh, the irony," I deadpanned.

"And let's not forget how Dash reacted to the Mysterious Mare Do Well," frowned Rarity. "She'd been getting so much praise for her heroics lately, she couldn't bare to have some masked stranger take the stage in her place - that masked stranger really being the five of us in disguise, in a bid to deflate her ego."

No sooner had Rarity said this than a lightbulb went off in my head. "So, in other words," I said slowly, putting two and two together, "she feels jealous when a newcomer gains a lot of popularity in a short period of time - like she's got competition for her imaginary status as awesomest pony around. Do you think that's why she's being such a pain in the flank?"

"Now that you mention it," Twilight ventured after a few moments' pause, "I wouldn't put it past her. She does tend to have something of a jealous streak."

"Well," I smirked ruefully, "that's one thing I can empathize with her about. Remember how I said I sometimes have trouble with my social skills? Well, seeing anyone far more neurologically impaired than me get ahead in areas I haven't tends to burn me up. It's not something I'm proud of, but it's true. Maybe Rainbow feels the same way: that I shouldn't have become friends with you guys here in Ponyville so quickly, because I'm just some awkward freak!"

"Don't say that, Endless!" cried Fluttershy imploringly. "You're anything but a freak!"

"It's true, you are prone to sensory overload," Rarity added delicately. "I could see that from the day you first arrived."

"But you're a kind, honest feller through and through," finished Applejack. "And ain't that all that really matters at the end o' the day?"

"I'm not really sure anymore," I murmured sadly. "If being nice won't stop Rainbow Dash hating my guts, what will?"

"One way or another, we need to get to the bottom of it," said Twilight stoically. "I suggest we hold another meeting and get Rainbow's side of the story - we'll report back to Endless afterwards."

"Are you sure that's a good idea?" I asked anxiously. "There's no telling how she'll react. For all we know, she might get angry with you for holding this meeting without her knowledge, and even angrier with me for whining about her..."

"Whining?!" Rarity burst out incredulously. "Voicing upset over somepony treating you badly is not whining! Thiiiiiiiiiis is whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiinnng!!!!!!" she added in a grating, high-pitched voice.

I snickered, then launched into a massive laughing fit: who knew Rarity had such a taste in theatrics?! As Spike and the mares all joined in, I felt like the luckiest stallion in Equestria. Even though I'd been beginning to doubt it in light of recent incidents, I now felt positive once again, that as long as I had supportive friends on my side, Ponyville was the right place for me...

For a time I thought my faith it must be hidin'
Searchin' through the sky
Hoping to find a way, a way
To get me through the day
Wonder where I belong
Is this where I should stay?

You lift me up when I am fallin'
You're my friend when I was callin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world
Yeah, you always been believin'
Give my life a whole new meanin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world

It's a strength in me it seems I had forgotten
Now I realize today
I'm starting to dream again, again
Was a matter of when
I guess we all lose our way now and then

You lift me up when I am fallin'
You're my friend when I was callin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world
Yeah, you always been believin'
Give my life a whole new meanin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world

Always been believin'
Give my life a whole new meanin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world

Yeah
Top of the whole wide wide world
Yeah, you always been believin'
Give my life a whole new meanin'
Now I'm on top of the world
Top of the whole wide world!

So the recent news of Thomas Season 22 naturally has everybody in a tizzy to put it very, very mildly. These are my thoughts of the matter thus far: matt0044.tumblr.com/post/16643…

I am anxious whether or not this will have diamonds in the rough or just be plain rough. However, come what may, I'm giving it a shot.

In the case of Henry and Edward, well, I doubt that the vocal amount of fans, young, old and parents, will make this change permanent. I'm not opposed to additions to the Steam Team but replacements are another matter.

Well, just because they won't live at Tidmouth Sheds doesn't necessarily mean they're being booted off the main cast.

I enjoyed Journey Beyond Sodor. It wasn't quite the best like The Great Race but JBS was still pretty entertaining. Mind you, I'm hoping the engines physically moving isn't brought to the TV series. I mean, it was interesting of an experiment to see given the animators have more of a budget to work with but I'd imagine they'd like to keep it simple for the TV show's lower funds.

Though the trucks bouncing was fine since it fits their personalities more. Also loved that they spoke individually more. XD

Though it'd be cool if we saw England more. Like Thomas returning to London itself. I guess they keep the UK vague to appeal to kids all over the world but still...
