We don't get many Cutie Mark Crusader threads around these parts.
Previous thread: >>25262578
instant lurking and bumping guaranteed
It's because most of the time, threads for a character turn into greentext about wanting to fuck said character. Then you get the people who run in here to scream pedo and the thread collapses.
You sure aren't. Crusaders of the Lost Mark quickly became my favorite episode of the entire series. I'm not afraid to admit that some liquid pride was shed.
I was really hoping for more interesting cutie marks related to the buildup of season 1. I feel like they got to season three and went ' I have an idea, let's throw it all away and start again!'
I think that they were faced with a tough decision about how to proceed with the CMC getting their cutie marks. Connecting their destinies for helping other ponies discover their true talents was a good way to let them remain the Cutie Mark Crusaders. If you look closely at the marks, you will see that they each have a symbol indicating their unique talents contained within the shield.
While I see it in sweetie belles, I would live to know what it is in the other two. Applebloom has a heart which I have no idea, and Scootaloo is a lightning bolt inside of wings. I can't really connect these with their lives talents.
Who are your favorite Cutie Mark Crusaders? List them from best to worst. Mine is: Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo.
The thing I'm most pissed about is that it doesn't even match their color schemes.
How do you fuck up this badly? This is one of the most anticipated reveals in the whole fucking series and it only barely matches scoots/sweetie bell and doesn't match apple bloom AT ALL.
>heat = tlc towards farm equipment
>lightning bolt in wings = pic related
It's my favorite too. At first I thought it needed to be two episodes but after thinking about it I think it was perfect. If it was a two parter people would KNOW something was going to happen. With it being the CMC there's only really one major thing that could have been.
However with how they did it, it felt like one surprise after another. Everyone assumes it'll be about the election. Maybe some cute moments at least, right? That gets resolved in seven minutes. Then Silver Spoon tells off Tiara really fucking well. Then the fillies made me feel like a bad person because despite Tiara being as bitchy as she was they wanted to make sure she was ok. They've got hearts of fucking gold and as much as I do my best to be kind to others I don't know if I'd be able to do that.
That brings us to the next major part of the episode, Tiaras mom and Tiara not liking who she herself is. This song got me misty eyed but I didn't all out cry. It made me feel bad for Tiara which I never though possible. I was in the "Worse than Hitler" camp. I sort of feel bad for not wondering if she just had a bad parent or life. I usually try to think that about people who are in a bad mood, or at least I'd like to. You always get that one person that just pisses you off so well you hold on to that spite, you know?
Tiara tells her mom off and FINALLY the CMC realize what they want to do. It wasn't that they didn't know their talents, I'm sure Sweetie knows shes a good singer, etc. This kinda shows that cutiemarks are more what the ponies want than some fate thing. I like that.
I actually want to see Tiara more often now, I think the cutiemarks are cute and the overall colors match with each one even if more so than others. It was my favorite episode and the song they sang after getting them made me cry. If mom and dad were here... thanks AJ. I sure needed you to say that.
I'm actually glad she did.
I cannot disagree with that. The colors that were chosen for the cutie marks are not exactly easy on the eyes. I do like what they stand for though. I'm still holding the opinion that Hasbro had the most influence on the designs for the cutie marks.
empathy, willpower, being my waifu, all of the above
Take your pick.
While I feel there's enough purple to fit with Sweetie and enough warm tones to fit with Applebloom and Scoots, I would have liked the colors to be different. Perhaps make the shields color the fillies mane color, then the two inner marks the other CMCs mane color. Applebloom for example would have a red shield, Sweeties pink as the apple color, and Scoots purple as the heart. Would that have looked better while still keeping the basic idea of them always being friends?
I think that a different color palette would have benefited the overall design of the cutie marks. They already have the shield that connects all of them so the three mane colors weren't necessary. I've attached a design that I think would have looked better.
That's true, the shield does do the job well enough. I also love the idea of Appleblooms cutiemark having the color of her other family members. That's a nice touch. I honestly like the design but the colors could have been better.
Holy shit, how lucky were we that the halloween episode leaked and not another episode where we see the CMC with their cutie marks.
Imagine the shitstorm if we got spoiled on their cutie marks.
>To just toss them by the wayside for the other two is stupid and a waste of the first two seasons.
Stop being stupid. It's not like they can only be good at one thing each. Nothing was "tossed". Apple Bloom's good at chemistry and housework/building, and she's also good at seeing goodness in others and trust. That's been shown to be a big thing for her since season 1, which I imagine is what the heart stands for. Either that, or the willpower she's so often shown to have. There's no contradictions in that. What would have been dumb and boring is if things turned out exactly as hinted in Show Stoppers. There's nothing dumb or confusing about her mark other than (arguably) the colors.
I'm not sure if I really understand Scootaloo's, but this definitely, clearly wasn't some last-moment thing they slapped on without thinking abut.
I agree with that completely. They have learned so much since the beginning of the series. It would have personally been a big letdown for me if they had gotten the marks that most people were expecting them to get. The show runners seem to have thought this out pretty well considering they can continue being the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
what would you rather want? individual episodes of these fillies? them not being friends anymore? They arent exactly the m6 and are also implied not old enough to be going on crazy ass adventures, so what can you do? I like the idea of being together forever, and being CMC.
I think either way we would have been fine. Wasn't Scare Master episode 15, but aired out of order? They got their marks in episode 18, right? So regardless of the fuckup if their costumes had shown their flanks we would haven't been any the wiser since they still hadn't had them by then.
Even if they hadn't I wouldn't have noticed until today cause I wanted to save Scare Master for Halloween. I would have been spoiled either way since it would have been all over the place so I'm glad the mess up was on that specific episode. Any others past CotLM would have fucked the surprise.
I agree. Rarity for instance got her cutie mark from finding gems. Sure we could delve into the symbolism behind or whatever, but she got her cutie mark from a rock regardless. She still makes dresses and worries more about meeting deadlines than where to find more gems. RDs cutiemark is go fast but she works for the weather company. It's not "You are good at X, that is all you are allowed to do and get paid for. Forever. Fucking deal with it."
What did the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Diamond Tiara ever do to you?
"dead to me" is a bit harsh, I guess, since it's nothing they did and more what was done to them.
The CMC are going to be crusading for cutie marks together until they die. They've given up on finding out what their special talents/callings in life are and have become guidance counselors. This is not an exaggeration:
>Scootaloo: Absolutely! I don't care if I ever get my cutie mark as long as I get to hang out with my best friends.
>Apple Bloom: So what do you say, Crusaders? Want to just focus on helpin' others find their cutie marks?
>Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle: Yeah!
Their big growing up moment is refusing to grow up. Their special talent is not having special talents. I can't understand how anyone who's been watching these fillies since S1 can be satisfied by this, especially considering that it unceremoniously throws out every piece of foreshadowing about the CMC's special talents that's ever been given to us up to now. Sure, it wouldn't have been surprising if they had gotten the CMs that everyone expected them to get, but not everything has to have a twist ending.
The situation with Diamond Tiara is almost too depressing for me to think about. She deserved better than having such a tiresome, clichéd backstory shoehorned into her like that. The idea of her running for student president on a platform of replacing the playground equipment with a statue of herself, on which the entire plot of the episode hinges, is preposterous, and pinning her personality on a character who has never been seen, heard from, or even implied to exist up to now is a lazy cop-out.
Everything you just said about the CMC has been talked about and explained in this very thread and multiple times in the last one, too. The shield/crusader thing is their purpose/destiny, not their special talent. Their "real" marks are inside the shield and haven't been explained yet, though it's easy to guess what they mean. Having a talent and that talent not showing up on your ass doesn't mean you no longer have that talent. Nothing was retconned or abandoned. I can't believe this still needs explaining.
The problem is that literally every other pony has a simple CM that relates to the main thing that they do, while the CMC have these ridiculous (and ugly) compound marks that try to encapsulate every little facet of their characters at once.
I don't think that the cutie marks are ridiculous or ugly. It is great to have our favorite little fillies receive marks that represent a bond that will always keep them together while also highlighting their unique talents.
>The problem is that literally every other pony has a simple CM that relates to the main thing that they do
Not that guy but at first glance you'd think she's a gardener or something. Her mark doesn't instantly relate to her job just from looks. I mean I have a little issue with the color scheme of the marks even if I get what they were trying to go for, but I don't think they're too bad. If the colors were better like posted >>25285983 for example they'd not look much different than say, Shining Armors in complexity. The marks themselves are great and symbolic of their bond, helping others, and their talents.
The way the colors are just makes it too busy but I still like the marks themselves as far as design goes.
ruined my waifu
I mean I wouldn't have had a problem with DT resolving her beef with the CMC (it had to happen eventually), but this episode did it in basically the laziest way possible.
>were about wanting to have sex with horse children.
While I'd appreciate more waifu talk and filly love in here, It's kind of nice to be able to talk about her without getting responses about people wanting to ejaculate in her eyes, honestly. I hope we can get to a nice medium where we're unashamed about our preference while not going full sex-obsessed like before.
I was initially surprised to see users actually commenting like human beings on a 4Chan thread. Are you saying that you enjoyed seeing Diamond Tiara bully the Cutie Mark Crusaders?
Her wanting to be a nice pony who embraces the Magic of Friendship™ was only introduced in CotLM. Nothing she ever said or did before suggested she wasn't totally fine with being the way she was.
I don't know how I would have done it better; if I did I would be writing children's television instead of bitching about it on 4chan. That said, Barnyard Bargains and Sweet Apple Acres have a symbiotic relationship, so her and Apple Bloom would have had to resolve their beef eventually. An episode where Filthy Rich and Applejack try to force them to get along, but nothing they try works, but then something happens that causes DT and AB to overcome their differences on their own seems like an obvious approach.
How fucked would it have been if the leaked Nightmare Night episode showed the cmcs cutie marks before Crusaders of the Lost Mark premiered?
Still a rich kid having shitty parents who push them to do things their way isn't anything new. Be it fiction or reality. Hell they don't even have to be rich. I get that you'd have liked something to hint that she wanted to be better. Nothing is perfect. I still liked that she wasn't just a pile of shit but had some feelings under all that anger and hatred. Really, sometimes all it takes is one kind act.
Why in the world would you enjoy seeing three fillies be bullied by somepony just because they hadn't discovered their talents yet?
These are exactly the kinds of images I wanted to see after the episode. All four hugging each other with tears in their eyes. Granted was hoping there'd be more with Silver Spoon, but they just make me feel good inside.
My problem is that her existing parent was an okay guy, so they had to pull a shitty parent out of their asses to make DT's behavior-justifying backstory work, which should have been their first clue that it was probably a bad idea.
>was hoping there'd be more with Silver Spoon
Silver Spoon's cute and always just followed along with Diamond Tiara. I'd hope that she'll start being a better pony too after all this.
While it does seem that her father is a nice pony we don't know that for sure. If he is I don't see why her mother being shitty isn't believable. Uppity rich snooty people aren't unheard of.
I mean I get that you'd have liked it to be done better. For what it was, having a 22 minute air time which I find important for this episode because it keeps the continued surprises of DT's redemption and the cutiemarks actually surprising, they did great.
Everyone would like to see things fleshed out better. Hell I want to see the series continue for 5 more years if the writing stays at a decent quality. In the end though I also realize it's a cartoon. There's going to be cliches, there's going to be things that are done a bit quicker than some may want. Still comparing MMC to CotLM, I'd say CotLM was just done a hell of a lot better. Instead of Twilight fucking up, fixing her mess, and being rewarded for it, the CMC go out of their way to save a fillys soul from being a sad lonely bitter mess like her mother. Tiara never had to deal with failing AND losing her only friend before. Spoon had enough of her shit too.
I guess they could have based her redemption around that aspect alone, losing the only friend she ever had as a reason for her to look back and try to become a better pony. I still had fun with how they handled it. I'm sorry you disliked it though, but I hope any future episode with a kinder Tiara can entertain you.
Our favorite fillies with redesigned cutie marks.
Here is another set of alternate cutie marks taken from G3.
Scootaloo’s Cutie Mark: G3 Counterpart
Sweetie Belle’s Cutie Mark: G3 Counterpart
Apple Bloom’s Cutie Mark: G3 Apple Spice
These marks mean so much to them. They like them, so even if you don't, wanting to take them away to fit how you feel is pretty messed up desu.
They went out of their way to have that song make you want to cry.
>Get their marks.
>Tiara calls them amazing.
>Instant joy when they see them and realize they're crusading together still.
>Ponyville collectively happy for them, also Derpy.
>If mom and dad were here.
>I'm so proud of you, lil buddy.
>You've inspired me too.
>Altered intro sequence.
Thanks, I didn't dry eyes anyway. Only way I could possibly have loved the episode more is if they hugged Tiara, but I guess that's a bit soon huh? I mean sure I feel Tiara should have said something like "These are the Cutiemark Crusaders, and I hope some day they'll be my friends." like her admitting she wants to change or something. Still, fuck it, I'm a big softy and love redeemed characters.
The human Cutie Mark Crusaders give their pony counterparts a bath.
i see nothing wrong with this.
Fillies are the sexiest.
Now that they have they have their cutiemarks, they are now legal right? I mean that was the whole debate when /mlp/ first came on.
I still tear up every time I watch even just a clip of the episode.
Scootaloo is going to be in for a surprise when she wakes up.
>Scootaloo is a lightning bolt inside of wings
Scootaloo is obviously talented with Scooter stunts.
>Apple Bloom has a heart
She's the leader of the CMC which basically makes her the filly of friendship/magic.
>"Guys, remember when we tried forcing Big Mac to fuck Cheerilee? Well, I know why my cutie mark has a heart now."
Same here. I don't start balling or anything but liquid pride does threaten to escape my eyes.
I think that it is safe to say that we are all proud of our favorite horse children.
Apple Bloom is putting up some stiff competition.
Her personality does nothing for me. I'm not really into the fact that they're fillies as much as how they actually behave via their character.
Besides, the legality thing it a semantic. I've always gone with the notion that they age like regular horses.
Never been into the farm types, and Sweetie Belle is simply so genuinely cute and wonderful without needing to try as much as her sister. A bit of her mischievousness and her willingness to indulge in creativity and her emotions makes her such a well rounded character.
And I want to put a baby in her after we're married.
Why not have a bit of shipping between the two best fillies?
I also genuinely adore all of my filly, inside and out. As I may have mentioned a few times in here already, one trait in particular that I especially like is her empathy and interest in others. She even understood and appreciated Maud so well from that one short conversation, even though the Mane 6 couldn't make it work with a whole day. That's awesome. There was also Zecora, Troubleshoes and DT. Call it naive if you like; I consider that open-mindedness, bravery, and willpower to be a great thing and more than just childishness.
Anyway, would you wait and let Sweetie grow more before marrying her? Even assuming they'd be legal, I'd like to let her enjoy her childhood and be there for her as she finishes growing into an adult before bringing romance into it.
Can you imagine something like this happening? It is kind of a scary thought.
I'm not a very big fan of Rarity. Something about her just turns me off. Sweetie Belle has a more attractive design and even personality in my opinion.
I'd certainly let Sweetie Belle grow into marehood. Whatever is comfortable for her. However, I'd like to say that if there is a great relevant age difference, I'd probably seek a mare more my "range". No need to push anything on the filly. But it really does depend on her age when arriving in Equestria. I'd imagine growing together as the ideal. There would be such a warm, rewarding feeling to helping the foal blossom into something more beautiful than I could describe.
Still, she'd probably have gone through estrus multiple times already. My main concern would be that she'd pass away before me, considering the comparatively shorter lifespans of horses . It would destroy me, to be honest.
I actually like Rarity. She's my favorite mane 6, and I usually write her as chaste and noble. When she does have sex, it's with equal parts love and lust, and is tactful in order to veil her arousal and anxiety.
However, I'm brainstorming for a slightly emotionally harsh Rarity shaming fic (and it turns her on). So I'm thinking about various ways to make her feel as though the hard, rough handle of a broom is the best she'll ever get; the best she'll ever deserve.
Then I might write a story about having anal with Sweetie Belle.
Fuck, mares are so hot. It's so wonderful to be able to talk about them here.
Anonymity is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I think that it was good idea for me to start this thread.
To be perfectly honest, I cannot stand Rarity. The main reason being that she manipulates ponies to her benefit any time she gets the chance to.
I would however be open to reading your fic about her if you ever get around to writing it.
I'd probably be much more interested in reading about Sweetie Belle taking it up the plot though.
It is indeed. I actually think that there isn't enough talk about mares. Too much eqg as of late for my taste.
I can see those reasons for disliking Rarity; I'm more enamored with season 1 and 2 of her. Recently she seems to be a bit of a caricature. I also didn't really like the Canterlot Boutique episode, because her dream was to run one and design for royalty and high nobility, not simply own one while living in rural Ponyville. Ah well.
I'm not sure I'll have time to write the Sweetie Belle fic for this thread. I actually love writing human x mare or human x filly stuff, and mlp is a pretty great place to post it.
I prefer romance, and anatomically accurate horses. You know there's lots of great material that can inspire man x mare works. I once thought about getting into drawing, but I've always preferred writing and written erotica compared to art. I feel it stimulates the brain more.
Anyway, Sweetie's certainly the more "genuine" of the Belle sisters. That's why I'd be open to being in a relationship with her, however it all depends on the factor of whether she's gone through estrus yet or not. Pursuing a filly who is too young goes against what I feel is appropriate, and frankly turns me off.
I have seen quite a few Equestria Girls threads here lately. It doesn't really bother me though because I'm a fan of that franchise.
I wouldn't have such a big problem with her manipulation if she didn't do it on a regular basis. I always find myself referring to Putting Your Hoof Down where she gives the stereotypical acne ridden stallion insincere compliments just to get the asparagus from him. That isn't even mentioning how often she uses Spike's crush on her to make him do stuff for her.
I'll be keeping the thread alive as long as I can. I'm usually not into human x mare or human x filly stuff because a lot of it seems to be pretty bad and generic.
I am always up for reading a something romantic that isn't just about a guy fucking a mare/filly however. Anatomically correct horses are really the only thing that does it for me. I'm also glad to hear somebody else say that they prefer written erotcia rather than art.
Sweetie Belle is the more likable and adorable of the sisters for sure in my opinion. It all depends on if the filly would be willing to participate in a romantic relationship rather than what age she is for me. I would never force anything on a sweet young filly that they weren't comfortable with.
We have been talking a ton about Rarity and Sweetie Belle. I feel obligated to say that Apple Bloom is still my favorite filly but Sweetie Belle comes in at a close second.
I hope DT will get an episode where she gets in another pony's face. The writers are pretty good at reforming while having the pony be their ambitious self.
I'm not sure what they have in store for Diamond Tiara but I'm glad that she isn't bullying our favorite filly trio anymore.
They are such a bunch of cuties! How could anybody not love them?
I'm not too much a fan of EQG but it can be alright. I find the plots of the movies to be a bit bland. Also, Sunset Shimmer gets such a large amount of attention when compared to the other girls. It's surprising to see how many fans she has garnered from the time of the first movie till now.
I agree about he manipulative attitude during putting your hoof down, but let's face it, nobody wants to be with someone thy perceive as ugly. I exercise regularly as part of my job, and take great pride in my shape. So it makes me feel good when I get complimented by others of the opposite sex. I wouldn't want to date someone who doesn't take care of their appearance.
I can thank you for keeping the thread alive for as long as possible, but I still can't guarantee when I'll be able to write. I've read a fair bit of man x mare, and can't say I find it particularly difficult to find something that suits my interests, though I will occasionally go through the dry spells of anything I like.
As far as art goes, yes, anatomically accurate always reigns supreme. I'm very fond of Stradivarius. Do you have any stories that catch your eye? I'm always on the lookout for quality man x mare erotica. I'd need to look into some favorites to give you some in return. I'm not going to shill my own stuff though; its not really something I do and generally dislike using a trip code without posting any content.
It's good that you wouldn't force yourself onto any of your lovers. I find the sexual body language of horses in general really quite interesting and arousing (shocker, I'm sure). The context of the relationship and the sex is really what makes the difference for me when it comes to a story that can be emotional as well as sexy.
As far as next favorite filly, I'd have to say Silver Spoon. I find her color palette and style irresistible. It'd be great to have more background on her, though I doubt it will happen when there is still so little about Diamond Tiara.
I remember back to when the fandom was going apeshit about Equestria Girls when it was first announced. I was one of the people in the minority that was actually looking forward to the spin-off franchise. The first movie wasn't spectacular like the last two but I still enjoyed watching it.
Her manipulative attitude that I see come out of her more often than I would like is what really makes me dislike her in general. That being said, I usually enjoy her appearances when she is being the generous pony she is supposed to be.
I stay up very late so it is much easier for me to keep my thread alive during times where 4Chan isn't very active. If the thread does manage to die then you can be sure that I'll create one to replace it like I did with the previous thread, though that one wasn't mine.
I generally prefer anatomically correct ponies when it comes to art but every now and then I'll find some anthro or Equestria Girls art that I really like. I haven't really been looking into any fanfics lately so I don't have anything to recommend to you.
Just the thought of forcing myself on a mare, or especially a filly, makes me sick to my stomach. I too find the anatomy of horses to be interesting but I don't care for them in real life.
There are multiple reasons why Apple Bloom steals my heart when it comes to my favorite filly. The first and foremost would be her adorable country accent. The second is that I find her overall design to be very cute, especially the bow that she always wears. The final reason is because I'm a huge fan of Michelle Creber and all the content she produces.
I can't say I felt the same about the eqg movies when announced. I did feel they were going to take away from the show, and I believe they have. I feel like they might be moving away from the ponies due to the influx of male fans, or following the aging demographic no longer interested in ponies but rather the adventures of high school girls (considering many of the target demo would be in middle school).
Do you have a favorite of the mane 6? I'm certainly fine with keeping this thread about the fillies, however, if that's what you're looking for. I'm also down for a bit of lewd conversation; who'd be best in bed, what sort of martial personality would each one have, what they'd enjoy in a partner, possible fetishes, etc...
I'm up during the day, but will be sleeping soon. Stay around, and I'll certainly be back to chat more in about 9 hours or so.
I think the interest between real and fake is a line frequently blurred, especially by those of us who appreciate more anatomically accurate drawings or story details. It's what you to to maintain that line which counts. Real mares certainly don't have the personalities of the mlp pones, but they sure do posses the most delicious physiques...and how...
Glad to hear you feel the same way in regards to coerced sex. I believe that rape can be written into a good story, although I don't find it erotic. Instead, the underlying reasons for sexual abuse can present a different emotions to the reader. Naturally it all depends on the theme.
I actually couldn't care less about the voice actors and don't follow them at all. I'm in it for the ponies 100%. Been around since day 1. The scruffening took some wind out of the place, but I believe there are still plenty of those here interested in mare sex. Shame there isn't even more talk about it or stories.
Reading about lusty, in - estrus fillies is a treat. I wonder how an mlp horse would kiss; I bet it would feel and taste amazing.
I generally tend to look on the bright side of things. I don't think the Equestria Girls movies have taken away from the show at all. They are written and produced simultaneously alongside Friendship is Magic. While the sales for the girls department at Hasbro did make a huge leap thanks to the new Equestria Girls IP back in 2013, ponies are still going strong. We already have season 6 confirmed for next year and the MLP movie confirmed for 2017.
I do have a favorite of the Mane 6 and that would be Pinkie Pie. I'm big fan of her humor and energetic personality. I'd rather not derail the thread into lewd discussion but this is 4Chan so I can't really prevent it.
You pretty much hit the nail on the head there. I just can't look at real mares the same way because they are just animals and don't speak or have personalities.
I'm a very frequent browser of Derpibooru and I have seen some stuff that has made my heart practically drop. It pains me to see somepony getting raped. especially any of the Cutie Mark Crusaders. There are exceptions to this though, such as if the pony appears to be enjoying it.
I personally feel that knowing the staff that work on the show is very important. It didn't take me long to memorize and do research on all of the writers and the VAs for each character.
One can only fantasize about such things.
Phew OP, I actually thought that you would say that the previous thread was yours.
In all honesty, I made that previous thread. Thanks OP for being honest!
I was just testing you with that question
I'm not really the type of person that takes credit for something that I didn't do. The CMC deserved a thread then and they still do now.
I hope their plots don't develop too much. They look perfect just the way they are, nice and small.
fuck I hated that scene
That was not how one is supposed to get a cutie mark. it was established in s1 that a cutiemark just pops in when it's time. What was with all that floating and explosion and shit
I didn't have a problem with the scene. It isn't what we expect to see when a cutie mark is earned but this was a special occasion. The CMC have connected destinies to be friends forever and help others discover their cutie marks.
They're important marks and they all got the "same" thing. It's special enough to warrant being different from the typical, I'd say. Those marks will probably lead them to doing some real meaningful shit.
I am disappointed by how dead the thread has been today.
A bump for Diamond Tiara is a bump for more Diamond Tiara.
You are pretty much the typical 4Chan user with low intelligence. You might want to check your grammar.
The cutie marks have different symbols representing each of their unique talents located inside of the shield.
I never actually gave a shit for Diamond Tiara before this episode. I just thought they would never do anything about her character and she would just become slowly less of a bitch over time just because.
In fact even watching CotLM I was laughing at her during the first half for getting BTFO during the election, I thought it was hilarious. I can't believe the show made me almost cry over her getting redeemed. Like if you told me a year ago, or even a month ago, that there was going to be an episode where I would feel actually sadness for her I would call you a faggot.
Who is your favorite background foal? Mine is Button Mash.
There should be more of her and Winona. I love it
So, anons, at what point in Crusaders of the Lost Mark did you realize the happening was imminent? Personally, I caught on when Scootaloo said she didn't care whether they ever got their marks.
I had a feeling something was up when they packed the episode with a hundred fucking songs.
The last time an episode started with a song, Twilight got wings.
Just say you're lazy, m8. Took less than two minutes to fix it in GIMP.
I should have figured it out when I determined it was a musical episode but I didn't. It caught me completely off guard though and I'm glad it did.
Even before CofLM aired, I was saying that Diamond Tiara would be redeemed =AND= the CMC would get their marks in the same episode. Even though I had guessed correctly, I still had a blast watching that episode anyway, wondering exactly how the writers were going to manage to do it all in just 22 minutes.
It was obvious from the official "blacked out" MLP promo poster that the CMC would get their marks this season. And VA Chantral Strang had tweeted that DT would get further character development in an episode that later turned out to be titled CotLM. Back in episode 12, Diamond Tiara's party was the reason the CMC met and her bullying caused them to form the CMC group, so it made sense to have DT involved when the CMC story arc came full circle. DT and the CMCs destinies seem to be tied together.
Of course, it would be interesting for DT to "fall off the wagon" and need some further "redeeming" from the CMC.
OP here. I was going to point out the typo that you made since I know all of the writers and voice actors/actresses that work on the show by heart, but I prefer not to criticise others like the majority of 4Chan does.
Amy Keating Rogers did an amazing job writing Crusaders of the Lost Mark and it makes me sad knowing that she has left the crew after five years to go work for Disney.
