S5 E5: Until Spring Comes Again by Esuka
S5 E5: Until Spring Comes Again
So here's the deal. Rainbow Dash is not my favorite character. While she can be entertaining, and her gung-ho attitude endearing, her bull headed neature and egomania can be too annoying. That said, I loved this episode. It was still her being stubborn and kind of selfish, but for reasons much more relatable than other RD episodes. And oh Faust, the love she showed towards Tank was heart melting. There was a lot of great non-verbal dialogue and moments of them just... I don't know, caring about each other. It was fantastic. I've said before that Rainbow is probably the most immature of the 6, and it really showed here, particularly in the second to last scene. But it wasn't annoying, it wasn't over the top. It was someone venting pain and frustration that they didn't know how else to deal with. It's real. And that's a large part of what makes this show great.

Also RD and Tank booties. So damn cute.

As a closing thought, I would really like a flashback episode detailing Fluttershy and Rainbow as kids. Flutters in particular seems to have a good understanding of how Rainbow works, and some time exploring how two strong opposites came to be so close and understanding would be a fascinating story.

S5 E4: Fear, Doubt, and Shadows in the Dark by Esuka
S5 E4: Fear, Doubt, and Shadows in the Dark
I'm going to be spoilerifically frank for a moment. I figure, if you're looking at this piece anyway, that's ok for me to do. When Applebloom got her cutie mark, I instantly called it for being a dream. But they actually ran the first sequence long enough that I questioned whether it was or not. So that was neat.

All in all, it was a neat episode. There were some good ideas, some fun execution, and great character interaction. I think the feeling of belonging and confidence in the future is something we struggle with at all ages, and it was well handled here. It's always fun, as well, to see Luna in her realm. My favorite element, I must say, was Applebloom's shadow. I was a little disappoint it wasn't some sort of dream parasite or something my mystical, but it made a lot of sense for the story, and I loved all the sequences in the forest. I loved Applebloom's reactions to it over the course of the episode, and I loved the slow reveal. That was some quality work.

Hey there, everyone,

A while back, I announced 'The Line,' a fanfiction I would be posting on a weekly basis. Well, it has now completed publication, and can be read from start to finish over on Fimfiction.net. I would love for you to give it a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers.
S5 E3: From the Ashes, From the Earth by Esuka

All in all, I thought this episode was... pretty good. Not great, but not bad. It had a cool setup, and addressed some issues I think we were all thinking about. The first act, establishing the problem and showing Twilight's reluctance towards the castle, was well done. The sentimental moments and the way they resolved the issue was clever and tasteful. It was mostly the stuff in the middle that wasn't as strong. I thought it was funny, I thought it was cute, but it wasn't really anything different. That said, I didn't recognize the writers, so they might be fairly new. A little time might let them get more acclimated and creative.

Also, I hope to Celestia we have a season gag of them finding Pinkie's party cannons randomly throughout the castle. Every so often, you here a BANG offscreen. Please let this happen.

S5 E1-2: Global Friendship System by Esuka
S5 E1-2: Global Friendship System
The long hiatus finally draws to a close. And what a way to start the season. No huge villains, no kingdom devouring plots. It felt much more contained, more personal. And oh lawdy were the overtones strong. It was interesting, and I think it can serve for some good discussion. Also, is it just me, or have cutie marks become quite unstable in the last two seasons or so? Seems like everyone and their dog can steal cutie marks, or erase cutie marks, or something. Poor CMC, maybe they should look into snatching theirs off someone else.

OH, AND WE GOT A HUGE NEW MAP. This is gonna be gooooood. It's a long season ahead, and I hope you're all looking forward to it.
