So much effort and passion went into this! Congratulations on this accomplishment, having an animation with this lenght and content isn't an easy task, but you made it!

As a person who's not involved or interested in MLP, I really enjoyed the animation and the storyline itself.

So glad to have helped you with the animation work for this project. I do hope that we can continue making stuff like this in the future. With my new team Anything is Possible

Interesting.
I remember watching the first few seasons of MLP, as I was a fan of Faust from Foster's and PPG, and yeah Celestia's method's where basically as narratively excusable as they where inexcusable.
I also think it's an interesting take to discuss consent within Celestia and Twilight's relationship, and kind of reminds me of an old Pokemon episode, where ash's Bulbasaur decided not to evolve, and ash's struggle about whether or not to use a lighting stone on Pikachu to defeat LT. Surge's Riachu.
While I think this debate was a little heavy handed I respect and overall agree that with in the narrative a lot of choice made sense because of inherent trust.
Also, nice animation overall, super competent for a fan project!
Thank you for making this.
