how's the fandom coming with the alicorn-ing?
Pretty shit, from my perspective at least, and I haven't even watched the finale yet. I literally have no motivation to watch an episode of FiM for the first time.
The whole show has just been bastardized this whole season by the money-obsessed Hasbro, especially involving their input in fan contributions (the only thing barely keeping my interest at this point). Popular tumblrs have been removed, the John de Lancie documentary was shut down, and the Fighting is Magic game, that's been in development forever, is undergoing petition to retain its release.
As well as this, the writing has downgraded. The characters aren't as charming as the other seasons, neither are they funny, distinctive in terms of well-established character traits, and they all just converse kind of awkwardly. The episode stories are stale now, it doesn't seem adventurous anymore; all in all, it just doesn't match up with what was shown the other two seasons.
To me, the idea of Twilight being made PERMANENTLY as an Alicorn, is really a social metaphor for all the little nuisances that have tampered with the show's quality for more profit, complimented by the fact that this is really just to sell more toys; fan opinions be damned.
The series has hit a Dexter. It might get better, or it may succumb to more profitable corruption and degrade further. Whatever the case, if by the time Season 4 rolls around, and I react apathetically towards the premier, I think I'll hang up the "brony" title. I'm just tired.
