If you waddle on over to Castle Ashlar you’ll be able to read the story I began writing as an energetic fan-tribute to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I started writing this during the middle of Season 2 and wanted to do something different.
You know… no relationshipping, no “one day I awoke and I was a pony”, or “what would happen if Derpy became a mane character”?
Yeah. Nothing like that. See, I’m also a fan of the recent BBC production of Sherlock Holmes. More than smashing, if you ask me. Stephen Moffat is one of my all-time favorite writers. The guy keeps me on the edge of guessing, and that’s no mean feat.
Thus was born the only Doctor Whooves/Forelock Holmes/My Little Pony:Friendship is magic crossover.
I haven’t checked lately but I’m certain that’s still the case.
Anyway, it’s called A Thief at the Gala, and though it’s not finished, I promise by the time I finish posting the last chapter, it will be. You can find the link for it right here.
Yes, I saw Season 3’s finale.
Was I impressed?
In fact I am less impressed with the Bronies who believed this was going to destroy the fanbase. Look guys, you don’t quite understand what’s going on here. Something as wonderful as MLP:FiM takes time to destroy.
Also, simply because most of you twits think the finale was a wonderful episode must not have noticed all the generic words M.A. Larson was using for “nice” and “special”.
No, I don’t think two more follow-up episodes will redeem this plotline, either.
And no, none of the characters you say were redeemed, because they’ve fallen so away from the original style of MLP:FiM that it no longer matters.
Making everything nice doesn’t make it nice. MLP:FiM has become fodder for those who tell us money is the only thing that matters.
But hey, why listen to me? Just look at the economy.
I know I’m right, because I’m not really talking about Bronies and Ponies. I’m talking about friends and families and what it takes to keep society stable.
Friends… family… stable. Huh.
Lauren wasn’t allowed to share with us her creative vision by means of this show, and I think it will be unlikely that she will ever enjoy such influence again. She appears to be an upstart.
What good is hope, when you’re rich?
Rarity is as unpleasant now a snob as any of the others she boldly confronted so many seasons ago.
No, it’s not over yet. There’s still hope.
Hope to crush.
