   I thought the episode was fine, though I just hate when stupid works its way into characters I'd have taken for being smarter than this...

Rainbow thinking her rusty "lucky horseshoe" has any intrinsic value to others makes her look vain... AND stupid. I mean, that's nearly the same as Christian Weston Chandler offering to give people "respect points" or some shit for something of real world value. And actually, her IQ feels like it's dropped over the last few episodes. "Testing Testing" showed her blowing off studying until realizing that she, in fact, didn't know the subject material. How you can fail to know what... you KNOW... I don't know...

Then there's, "hey, let's combine our trade-stock so we can get something of even greater value!" Well yeah, girls, that'd work great. Course, you have to be going in on something both of you want, or else... y'know... one of you is going to get the short end of the stick. Big surprise when they both try buying their pool's worth of items for themselves.   


I get that it's a show meant to teach young kids a bunch of moral shit, so they almost have to spell it out for them like they don't have the faintest idea... but I hate how dumb it can make the characters look when they've been shown to be more competent than this.

@Kusang:
That's some neat idea. I'm not sure what 'Shy's egg is supposed to be though.

@BR:
Let me clarify. Character making mistakes, and learning from them, is very important. However, when characters commit a flaw that contradicts what has been established about them, it is a problem.

From TT123, we learned that Dash takes note of everything when she flies, and considering her speed, she must be capable of processing information at a very fast rate. This was consistent with Wonderbolt Academy. When her friends fell, she immediately dived straight down to build momentum, knowing there's a tunnel right beneath her, and quickly gathered enough cloud to catch her friends, which again required her to know the quantity and positions of the cloud before choosing that option. Also, she was never one who forget her friends in favor of her interest. Shadowbolts offer, Wonderbolts dream, enough wingpower to beat a record, nothing ever made Dash lose sight of her friends. So how did a book distract her enough to agree to selling away her friend, and took her a minute to process it?

Pinkie may be an airhead, but she is still sensitive about others' mood, shown in Griffon the brush off and especially in Pinkie Pride, even when she focuses on outdoing Cheese. And she should be, if she's really as adept at making people laugh as the show implies. But then we have this scene. How did she not notice the filly cowering before her? And it's not just this episode, Filli Vanilli as well. In those instances, she was just like one of the FUN! FUN! FUN! clones from the mirror pool.

As for Rarity and AJ, when they insist the other to take all the items to prove "I'm the better friend" comes off as really petty, more so when they try to take for themselves. Or maybe it just rubs me the wrong way. But we just had Simple Ways, where Rarity acted in a very insulting manner to AJ, and yet AJ was still more reasonable than this episode.

And Twilight originally wanted to trade the books away because the library was running out of space, yet she decided to keep them. To me at least, Twilight would be more of the type to give away the books so that others may also learn just as she has, instead of hoarding them out of sentimental values.

It's also a reference to Madoka Magica (her Japanese VA is the same person who voiced Kyubey) c:

So about that wheelchair pony featured in this episode, according to this Equestria Daily article, it seems he's actually an OC named Stellar Eclipse, created and voiced by a kid who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy type III, as part of a collaboration with the Make a Wish Foundation.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh~

Yeah, I heard about that too. But the "Make a Wish Foundation" part I didn't see. That's pretty sweet that that's what his wish was. He really was an interesting addition to the episode. Hope maybe he'll become popular in the fandom.

Ha ha, I had fun drawing that. Nice calls on the easter eggs (pun intended).

My innate ability to sense when someone is making a Madoka reference has been lacking as of late.

Wow. At first I was thinking "What a silly name" but that is actually a really cool thing to do.

I actually really liked Celestia's short song at the end of season 3. I have no idea what the general opinion on that one is.

Celestia's ballad was very well-received, and for good reasons.

I made some more pony art.

The Princes and the Dragon

Something kind of interesting I realized a while ago:
Most of the time in western lore, a princess and a dragon are enemies.
Not here though. Here the princess and the dragon are family.
