It's been a weird morning. Anyways, since I've grown fond of doing this, my episode geek out! Spoilers shall ensure:
Fluttershy, haven't you already gotten over your fear of Dragons? Guess more than one dragon is just too much.
Rainbow and the butterfly migration
.haha! Fluttershy DID owe her. Poor Rainbow
I mean, I would love to see a butterfly migration, but I'm sure Rainbow wouldn't. And it's a dragon migration! Come on, Fluttershy!! And now that you've kicked RD, you owe her even more
I'm really starting to love the relationship between RD and Fluttershy. They're so mismatched, yet they get along so well. It kinda reminds me of my cousin and me
we don't necessarily have RD and Fluttershy's personality, but if we weren't cousins, we would never have been friends. We would probably hate each other. But we have always gotten along so great. Yeah, I would never invite my cousin to see a butterfly migration, cause I know she would be bored
Camo ponies ^_^
Rarity's camo and binoculars
RD looking towards AJ
I like the comment someone made on YouTube
it looked like she was trying to impress AJ ^_^;
Oh, my God, Spike
.have some pride in yourself! Aww, even AJ laughed at him in the apron!
Rarity and "the cutest wittle chubby cheeks!!" How cute! "Waddles off in anger" "WADDLES!?" haha!
Since when do Rarity and RD hang out?! For breakfast?! Need more interaction so that makes sense! Really! I have trouble understanding how these two get along! They never do anything together! Even in this episode, they were just kinda standing next to each other, not interacting!
Spike packed ONE sandwich in his run-away satchel
Aww, Twilight knows she has to let the butterfly go to see if it will return to her, like Mariah Carey said...
"I've done LOTS of nutty things!" "We know!" *groan* I really like RD in this episode.
Hehe, Twilight as the concerned mom following their kid to school.
THAT'S one of Rarity's finest creations?
The teenage dragons RUINED the concept of this episode. Ugh! I don't even want to talk about them!
Wow, ponies must be really uncool. Both Griffons and Dragons hate them
Letter to Princess Celestia RUINED!!!
Crackle is best dragon
he reminds me of my dog, actually, LOL
Rainbow Dash kicking Rarity ^_^;
King of the hoard reminds me of this
kitten is king of the box, and NOONE shall dethrone him!
Sheesh, Dragons are lava proof??
It bothers me that Phoenix reproduce
.they kinda live forever (I guess unless they're killed), so shouldn't they be more
abundant? Or maybe they're like pandas and only breed every few years
only in this case, few hundred years.
Oh, Rainbow Dash
being held back by unicorns
Even other Pegasi hold you back.
BABY PHOENIXS!!!! The bird lover in me is pleased. But they can fly already?
Phoenix egg is kinda awesome
I want one! Sheesh, a pet that lives forever. And I thought tortoises were long term pets
.I think RD coulda taken the dragons. And Twilight actually couldn't use her spell at first? That's
.kinda awesome. We all know her magic has it's limits, but I think this is the first time her spell failed in the middle of casting. To the fanfiction!!!
BABY PHOENIX!!!! PEEWEE!!!! DEEEEEEE!!! Oh, my God. Spike has a pet. And it's a Phoenix. It's soooo cute!!! I want a pet Phoenix!!!
You know, with the head canon that Twilight and the others are being geared to take over to Princess Celestia eventually, and now Twilight kinda in a way having a Phoenix, I'm starting to believe that more and more.
Okay, so I'm glad I saw the second teaser last night because it lowered my expectations for this episode, which was good, because I hated those teenage dragons. Not in a "those characters were so mean" way but in a "seriously? The writer had to make these characters?" way. Speaking of the writer, Merriwether Williams (yes, I'm now starting to pay attention to which writer write's each episode. My fave so far is M. A. Larson), I'm getting the sense that Williams' episodes have a great concept and tend to fall short of expectancy. Probably the best of her episodes so far, in my opinion, is Putting Your Hoof Down
but really, who am I to judge? I could never write for a kid's show or a kid's story
and I've tried. Believe me, I've tried
All in all, I give this episode a 3 out of 5. Didn't really solidify any dragon canon except that they migrate once in a generation, and that Spike seems to be an exception in flying and attitude. Oh, and that dragons are SO fireproof, that they can swim in lava. But the interaction between the Mane Six was entertaining.
