I’ve learned to separate the art from the artist.
Wait, Really? I’ve never heard of that.

I never really got exactly what people wanted everyone to apologize to Twilight for. Yeah she was right in the end, but at the time she was being paranoid and had no real evidence against Cadence. And despite the lesson of Pinkie sense, you can’t just go along with something like your friend accusing someone just on faith and belief in your friend.


THANK YOU.

Seriously, why do people not get this?

just go here and read until either you lose all will to live or you get to the part where it derails into being about pizzas.

seriously, we got so sick of that entire shit-show of a drama we actually not only allowed the derailing to happen, but actually officially recognized the derail’s sovereignty by renaming the thread "the pizza thread".

@Jarkes
it’s called outcome bias. people tend to judge a plan of action by the results, rather than by whether or not it was a good idea in the moment it was made and executed. celestia freeing discord and twilight trusting starlight were terribly bad and risky moves as well, but they get defended because they happened to work out in the end.

example: walking up to t.j. dillashaw in the street and punching him in the dick. terrible idea, right? now if i did it and, for some reason, he rewarded my courage with 1000 dollars instead of murdering me right then and there, that doesn’t magically make it a good idea.

Absolutely no one deserved Twilight an apology, not even Applejack, the only one to apologize.

Twilight had already proven not once, but twice before in that very season that she’s someone who allows herself to get incredibly worked up over completely non-existent crises (Lesson Zero and It’s About Time), and therefore, I cannot blame the mane five in the slightest for thinking that this just might be another instance of that.

Tracing huh? Oh that explains why his recent comics always has the ponies facing the viewer for some reason… No wonder why it looks like the South Park style.
Didn’t that happen with Drawponies too?

I think it’s just that a lot of artist really enjoy Angst. No clue why, I never really enjoyed it, especially when the artist is forced to make something else extremely contrived and irrational just for the sake of it.

A lot of fic writers need to learn that creating a whole ton of pointless angst for the protagonist doesn’t make them an underdog and automatically make me want to root for them. It does the opposite if anything, no one likes a self-pitying main character, especially when the author goes out of their way to make everyone jerks to justify it

I do.

I like long stories full of angst and suffering.

I should probably not type anything in regards to Twilight during A Canterlot Wedding.

Instead I’ll just type that I want more Twilight/Cadance bonding. I loved their moments in Three’s A Crowd.

No people like conflict and drama caused by events, it’s just most people like A) there to be a some what happy ending to it and B) don’t like someone just endlessly whining about stupid stuff that happened to them constantly

Just don’t like it when people say ’no one’ in an opinion thread.

Which is why Odyssus already used it. It’s literally the second oldest trick in the book and that’s only because it’s the second oldest book in Western culture in existence right now
