Nayuki, would it be at all possible to reveal what Dash's bedspread design looks like without her obscuring part of it?

I... kinda want to... have a real one made... *squeak*

What no, that's a general comment for the season as a whole.

Daring Doo definitely was a fun bit that I'd like to see more of... Although the character would definitely need fleshing out to hold up a narrative. And something to distinguish her from Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, other than being a pony.

As for the minor question regarding why this crash managed to hurt Rainbow Dash: Going by the head movements of the others, she seemed to go down spinning, so the best explanation would be that she got her wing caught on something. That kind of thing has got to do some damage!
Also, good call NOT to show exactly what happened. Really made that scene go down a lot easier.

From a structural standpoint, how can molten lava remain that potent or for that matter how can a collapsible floor endure those temperatures for so long? And don't tell me it is because it is a fictional story in a children's cartoon, cause that will just make my mind leap out of my head and explode on my face!

Yeah, the lava bugged me a bit too. But on this kind of show, "magic lava" is a plausible answer.

Apparently the working title for this episode was... Reading Rainbow.
QUOTE
I have seen a lot of funny fandom comments about how the title should have been "Reading Rainbow". Apparently that actually WAS the working title early on--don't know why they didn't keep it but I assume it has something to do with the rights to the actual show.*

Yes, the impractical use of lava does bother me, but ceiling gators? Seems legit, nothing questionable about that logic.

I really don't take issue with the non-accurate use of lave in a fictional adventure story told within a fictional world which runs on magic.

Was implying Nayuki was revealing the Princesses and Zecora were actually male.

Someone on Ponychan just pointed this out, but retroactively, one could say Berry Punch was dressed up as Daring Do for Nightmare Night.

Via the application of faulty logic to Nayuki's comment, this (ahem) implies that any costumes we don't see in "Luna Eclipsed" constitute spoilers; conversely, costumes actually seen will bar the subject from future episodes. Fandom, begin drawing perverse conclusions!

I'll start! Nopony was dressed as a seapony. Is that "shoo be doo" I hear?

For the humor and reading comprehension impaired, this is a joke. Thank you.

(there was a bit of cloning in that episode that I would have ideally avoided), but it was a big episode and we had a deadline to meet.


There are always people dressing in the same mall costumes at halloween.tsk.
