Must be Lucius then. Too bad, I think Xenophilius fits Discord much better.

Luna, not because Luna, but because she genuinely had the most meaningful line(s) and actually empathized with Twilight.

The series premiere ends in a Star Wars reference. (Season Two premiere continues the tradition more obviously)

Ugh, people think that's Dumbledore, Harry and Hermione? Fail. Yes, Twilight is Harry Potter, but look at the ties. Discord is Slytherin and Cadance is Ravenclaw. I'm guessing Discord is Xenophilius Lovegood—mainly because of the hair and personality, I don't know what house he was—and Cadance is his daughter, Luna Lovegood (Who is basically the only ravenclaw with more than a few lines.)

Interesting. I was not aware you could construct a playlist via the URL.

Sadly, bypassing the YouTube interface this way is not something I can condone. A 'proper' playlist would be much preferred.

HRH is for 'Her Royal Highness'

And no, faking means faking. She intends to only pretend to help Celestia solve this 'crisis,' hence her help is fake :)

That's fair enough. I appreciate that you took the time to comment sensibly.

Personally, I like transformational stories that deal with characters adapting to new things, and I look for the mane six in them because it's a sign that things like alicornification aren't just a symptom of poor character design. To each his own :)

Constructive criticism is always appreciated, though I swear I have a gremlin here adding little punctuation errors after every set of fixes .-.

I'm not really surprised at the star rating. I figure it pretty much comes with the territory when you're writing about alicorns.

Sigh, more caps and puntuation. I swear I had all of those down. Shh, don't tell EqD. I was supposed to have fixed all of them already.

As for the ellipses, semicolons, en-dashes and em-dashes, I'm well aware of how often I use them, but they're more a symptom of the conversational tone and style than an issue on their own. I try to minimize them when I can.

Not quite sure where you're coming from with the other comments though.

The "nope" is definitely Twilight through the narration. I suppose if you consider it internal dialogue, it could deserve its own paragraph, is that what you mean?

The comment on pie is meant to remind the reader of the specific instance the quote comes from in order to validate it, and also indicate that it's a trend that has continued. She's overwhelmed/regretful in hindsight.

The comment in third-person is in response to Applejack talking to everyone but her, and so sarcastically shares the same 'viewpoint.'

I'm really not sure why those particular bits stand out to you.

(Also, curse this silly comment system requiring short names.)
