    Wait, what reaction to Cadence? Are some idiots being idiots somewhere about her?

  • chrisnlchrisnl Registered User regular
    There are undoubtedly entitled fans who take exception to her being an alicorn. Such is life, you can't do anything without somebody getting their knickers in a twist.

    Well having her as an Alicorn does kind of make Celestia and Luna less unique.

    And her being an Alicorn wasn't really important to the plot at all.

    Also, Faust didn't want any other Alicorns in the series.

    However, having another one isn't going to ruin everything. So... weh.

    And Chrysalis's regular form is kind of alicorn-ish. Does that make them even less unique?

    I rank Fallout: Equestria amongst the top ten stories I've ever read. Whether that says more about the quality of the fic or the number of stories I've read in my life, I don't know. It's very long (longer the than lord of the rings), but it's worth the effort, in my opinion.

    Simply Rarity is a nice, sad shortish story.

    Calling the shots is good for a laugh and is pretty short.


    I - er - I read quite a bit of fan fiction last summer. I can recommend a few others but I know most people frown upon it *shrugs*

    There is absolutely no way Fallout Equestria should work, but it does. And it has far more quality in writing and storytelling than fanfiction has any right to have. So yeah, if you don't mind the length it's a good read.

    I honestly am not all that bothered by Cadence being an alicorn, at first it was strange, but I mostly shrugged it off since it meant Celestia could stop having pink toys.

    Once I saw the finale and put a personality to her, I genuinely liked her as a character and I want to see more of her and Shining Armor in the future. Hell I'm even brewing plans to take this Cupcake pony I ended up with and make her into adolescent Cadence, since she has the right hair and about the right size.

    Yeah, they really should've gotten Ron Perlman to do his voice.

    Or Keith David.

    Or H. Jon Benjamin (c'mon c'mon c'mon Studio B bring him in for a third season character)

    I'll have to give it a look. The few times I've tried reading any of the fanfiction, there were enough clumsy word choices in the first few paragraphs to put me off reading any further. The only one I finished was this one, which could be subtitled: "The Redemption of Prince Blueblood", which isn't bad, but is also overlong and repetitive in spots, and has a few aspects (like the final fight and Luna's actions) that simply make no logical sense.

    Saying it's in your top 10 stories does pretty much just make me question how many books you've read, but I'll ignore that.

    I might regret this question. But what's up with the self-shipping? Triple self-shipping even.

    Clones/time travel/alternate universes, I assume. Meeting yourself through time travel is already canon, so...

    The reason it's better quality is because it's ten megabytes.

    Huh, so it is. I sometimes forget my Internet is actually pretty awesome here. (I was mostly talking about it being the full dance, though)

    It made a pretty great Chekov's gun, even it if it's been done before.

    Note that Candence grew up in parallel with Shining Armor and Twilight, so if Alicorns end up being immortal or just plain live for a long time then she's extremely young compared to Celestia and Luna

    Lauren Faust obviously planed for them to be extremely long lived. Perhaps we're back to 'When a daddy unicorn and a mommy pegasus love each other very much' territory?

    Clone, twin, magic spell, parallel worlds, etc.

    Because fanfic writers are awful people.

    I was mostly bothered by the fact that making Cadence an alicorn and a princess didn't seem to add anything at all to the plot. It felt like a hasty rewrite. But at least she's still a somewhat likeable, humble character rather than a prissy fairytale princess.

    Other than that, "Trust your instincts" seems like a poor lesson to take from the episode. Especially when they could have gone with something like "You get your strength from the ponies who love you."

    This is actually the one part of the plot of the finale that irked me, especially since it was handled better in earlier episodes:

    It's a great lesson though. Sure another one might have suited the episode better but I like this one.

    Twilight spotted something her friends and teacher hadn't and followed through with it.

    Well, lets be honest, she presented it very poorly. You dont wait until the rehersal starts the next day, and announce the bride is evil. She could have gone to see Celestia that same night and explained what she saw, but instead she took the drama whore route and got ignored. Which i kinda like as a lesson to little girls :)

    Oh my god, I just realised.
    What if this alicorn 'situation' escalates?

    First it starts with Cadance, then an alicorn moves into ponyville. After that alicorns are running the ponyville bank, bakery, art studio etc.

    Next thing you know the mane six are out of their jobs and riding their own alicorns into town to pick up their state benefit cheques!

    If the trade off was "You guys can have your white Celestia, as long as we have a pink princess to market" im ok with this. But to all you die hard fans out there thinking she ruins the lore of Equestria, worst case scenario is that she is mentioned a couple of times. I honestly don't see her coming back visually for season 3.
