Grimdark done right. (Party of One)
Party of Two Clop version of that episode :)
I have to say since the topic of grimdark has come up, I do like it for example Cupcakes, however the majority is crap. I do enjoy a good well made story, but thats just the problem, most of them aren't good and well made. Take Rainbow Factory for example all I have heard of that one so far makes it seem rubbish to me, I dislike OC it ruins the feel of characters to me, especially to have them in such a main position, also in general the other stuff makes it sound like all it was made for was to be grimdark, and not to be a story.
Cupcakes though it was grimdark had style, Pinkie kept her party attitude all the way through and it made her character actually seem like thats how she would be if she was pyschotic, rather than just oh look the character is now psychotic apparently like most grimdarks do. The way Rainbow Dash slowly descented from struggling her own arrogance and just ending up wanting to go home really felt like an actual character being destroyed, rather than just a character being killed off for some random paragraphs of grimdark.
There is grimdark out there that is good, but sadly most is shadowed by people who are just trying to copy the successful ones. For example Fluttershy's Sink which I made I focused on the characters and how Fluttershy slowly descented into nothing to eventually accept her place. I am glad some people have liked it as I hoped for a few to, but I never made it just to be one of those "hey look its grimdark" pieces. I had the idea come to me and thought it would be a interesting thing to write so I writ it. Glad I did to.
What are the chances of LUUUUUUUUUNA appearing in episode 3?
Hopefully she will.
Do you welcome the change of Theme?
As long as its good.
Favorite Background pony (excluding Derpy Hooves)?
Are alicorns naturally born?
Seems like they are, don't know for sure, there has been fanfictions of having Twilight becoming one to take over after Celestia passed on which I liked, but they aren't canon to the story but as a side fan story it seems good.
Do you want Celestia/Luna backstory?
Favorite non-BG, non-mane6 pony?
Trixie and Luna.
