My Little Pony Season 5 Finale Musings

Okay so, I just want to say this one thing. I know that the finale felt rushed towards the end, I think we can all agree on that, but am I the only one who thought that Starlight's backstory was NO EXCUSE for her being a radical communist??? Losing a single childhood friend is not enough to make someone evil in any world, anywhere! I totally get that My Little Pony is a children's show and they couldn't make a story too abstract or terrible, but I think a better backstory for Starlight would have been this:

Starlight is an orphan. She lives in an orphanage with other colts and fillies. She has a hard time making friends because they are always getting adopted. She may make one friend only to find that in a month that same friend is leaving with a new family. Eventually, making friends becomes pointless. Starlight finds that those that get their cutiemarks early are adopted quicker, whereas blank flanks are often left behind, because having a cutiemark means having a talent, and having a talent means you are special. This kind of cutiemark/special talent favoritism would 100% cause damage to any growing mind, but Starlight would, of course, take it especially hard because she would not develop a cutiemark until her adult years.
Being forced to watch as the lucky ones got to go to a home, while the few blank flanks, or those that got their cutiemarks when they were older and less cute (and therefore less likely to be adopted) is what could have made her so sympathetic to those who are given the short end of the stick, and so furious at those who stand out among others. Starlight's insecurities and unique ideology would make much more sense stemming from this situation, instead of the canon scenario where she just lost one friend and got jealous and gave up on friends forever like some big dumb baby.

Aside from that, my only other nitpick was that all of the mane six still had their cutiemarks in the alternate world scenarios. Why would they have their cutiemarks if they never discovered their true talents? I firmly believe that the mane six should have been blank flanks in their alternate worlds. This would explain the dystopian way in which they lived, because they would not have discovered the joys derived from their special talents.

Okay I'm done musing. Carry on!

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

I am a digital artist with an affinity for the so-called "ferals" of anthropomorphic nature (think of the movies Bambi, The Lion King, The Land Before Time, etc), that is, quadrupedal animals that speak and emote as humans do.

Drawing is simply a hobby for me, though I do occasionally take commissions if I am blessed with free time.

When I'm not doodling or mucking about in the reptile room, I am working at an exotic veterinary clinic, where I wrestle alligators, cuddle prairie dogs, and talk with vasa parrots. My job takes precedence, so my artwork takes time!
