Daughter of the Moon by Esuka
Daughter of the Moon
Here we are again, at year's end. I always get super retrospective around this time, judging how the year has been for me. What's gone on since the last solstice? Where am I now? What have I done? This year has been a very challenging one for me, but it has also been incredibly rewarding. I hope that, for all of you, 2015 has been a time to cherish. And looking forward, I hope 2016 has even more good in store.

Tonight is our longest night of the year, so stay warm and be merry. I have every intention of getting one more thing done before year's end, so let's hope that happens. Until next time, have a wonderful holiday.

S5 E25-26: What Might Have Been, What May Yet Be by Esuka
S5 E25-26: What Might Have Been, What May Yet Be
Isn't it great when your crazy villain is probably the worst part of your episode? In a season of ups and downs, this episode ended it on a high note for me. The idea of "What would have happened if X never occurred" has been floated around the fandom for years now, and it was interesting to see a canon vision. It was also interesting to see a full scale Equestrian war. I think Sombra's alternate reality was my favorite, so it sucks that they blew that first, but none of them were bad persay... Except maybe Discord's, but it was so short, whatever. I think Twilight and Spike were fun, the visuals of the time travel and the fighting were great. It was a well timed and well executed episode. 

And now we get to the elephant in the room. Starlight Glimmer. I will start by saying that her insanity, and the way it visually and strategically played out was fantastic. Her plot was so beyond the realm of reason, that you couldn't help but be impressed by it. Also, can we address that she is the only other pony to crack a Starswirl spell, AND she can fly using magic? Fuckin' Zaheer up in this house. No, all of that was great. It was her backstory that didn't really hit home. That whole thing with her friend was a fine instigator, but there were a few dozen levels of psychotic deterioration between "I lost my childhood friend and have a childish reason for it," to "I'm going to build a hamlet where everyone gets their cutie mark taken away," to "Fuck time and space, I'm going to wreck this person's life forever." I know there would have been a LOT to address if they had gone through each beat, but the instigating event, in my opinion, was not strong enough to justify bringing about multiple end-of-the-world scenarios for the sake of some vengeance. Again, that isn't to say that Starlight wasn't a ton of fun to watch. 

All in all, a great end to a pretty good season. For those of you familiar with how this works, there is one more image left to do. Finals are in full swing here, so it might take time to get to. But I do hope you look forward to it.

S5 E24: Behind the Glamour by Esuka
S5 E24: Behind the Glamour
Oh god, this season and it's cute ponies. What ever am I to do with all these cute ponies! This episode was a good swing up for me, and not just got its cute characters. It showed a good relationship between two characters. It was well paced and hit its beats in a pleasing way. It was deliberate without being self righteous about a message, which could have been easy to do in this situation. My biggest gripe, I'd say, was that the manager did not get any sort of comeuppance, but that's unfortunately all too true. Some times, bad people get to walk away, so it's really more a gripe with reality than with this story.

I think the way Rara as a personality and as a character was handled was well executed. Her wants and intentions did not necessarily meet up with her persona as constructed, but everyone just assumes that to be what she wants. Maybe we can take that into consideration before we rag on celebrities and their antics... Probably not, but maybe. Lastly, shout outs to some great songs this episode. Just fantastic work.

Well folks, we're coming to it at last. The conclusion to the fifth season. I hope you're looking forward to it. I know I am. Until then, Happy Thanksgiving.

S5 E23: War of the Pumpkins by Esuka
S5 E23: War of the Pumpkins
Pumpkins for days. This episode was a lot of fun, mostly for all the crazy yokel characters we got from the two families. Granted, only two of them spoke in most cases, but they were great, and the designs overall were great. The designs of the two hills were a lot of fun as well, showcasing their strengths and weaknesses. The plot was nothing spectacular, but still had some fun beats, and was well executed scene by scene.

I think my main issue would be Twilight and Fluttershy, but more Twilight. Fluttershy was, well, being herself, so ok she gets a pass. But Twilight is supposed to be the Princess of Friendship(tm). I get that she's a nerd, and that organizing and analyzing is her natural way to attacking problems. But shouldn't she have, by now, intuited that not everything is empirically solved, especially matters of friendship? It seems too late in her arc for her to be having problems like this. Don't get me wrong, it was humorous, but it felt out of place.

Still, I'd call it one of the better episodes of the season. If nothing else, we got to see more of Equestria and its colorful characters. And that's always a plus.

S5 E22: Cool Story by Esuka
S5 E22: Cool Story
So I guess all that cool stuff that happened over the weekend actually did happen? I was guessing that they were all making it up to pull a fast one on Twilight, since none of them could corroborate their story when asked. Kind of weird that that wasn't the case, but oh well. I thought Twilight was pretty well done this time around, and it was fun to see this scenario play out. We don't get to experience everything, and it sucks to know how much we don't get to be there for. I thought Twilight was fine, and I thought the others were fine. Discord was fine, but I don't know if HE knows how this whole thing is supposed to work. He's still grasping friendship, and he makes some pretty hefty screwups. I think it wouldn't have worked if they had just forgiven him, and much like Scare Master, it was successful because they didn't play it off. When they realized that he had caused this whole mess, they called him out. It emulates the sentiment and expectation of the audience, rather than try to be a "moral" ending.

All in all a pretty good episode. Discord's antics were lacking compared to other appearances, but the rest of the case did a good job.
