*walks out on stage* Umm, I don't know how to tell everyone this, but Conway Twitty's been dead for nearly 30 years, now. So...*dances awkwardly as distraction*

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 10:47 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

But eventually destroys everything.

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

Each of the Elements is a FATE-style Aspect that can be invoked negatively on occasion. The GM is loading the Mane 6 up with fate points for the finale, I guess.

Time to run. Later.


Good final season episode. Rarity looks back on something we've been watching all these years and realizes what it's meant to her.

Kinda.

On the other hand, if a friend suddenly drops cold turkey a bunch of activities he used to enjoy, you should not ignore that.

Oh, absolutely. You should check and see if there's something amiss. Rarity only checked because it was affecting HER activities, and not because spike suddenly changed.

On the other hand, her attempts to get his attention back showed that she actually has a really good idea what he likes to do. Clearly she has been paying attention to the stuff he talks about when they hang out. She doesn't just know what makes him useful. She thoroughly knows what he's into. That has to count for something.

I'm not saying she wasn't in tune with him, I am saying that she only started when it inconvenienced her life.

 

Edit: I'm also being more than a little sarcastic here. They didn't do a very good job STARTING this story.

Oh, absolutely. You should check and see if there's something amiss. Rarity only checked because it was affecting HER activities, and not because spike suddenly changed.

 

 

Well of course, I mean you and your friends have things you do seperate and stuff you do togeather. You're less likely notice if a friend drops and activity you're not a part of. This is stuff that Spike likes doing with her, and has been doing with her consistantly for years. Rarity has her businesses and classes to help manage, its not like she's always demanding Spike's time. But here, Rarity finds that one of their things, is suddenly SO not important to Spike that he's not even paying attention to her. That's gonna raise red flags to anyone, and not just becuase its effects her.

 

Now the whole "divorced parent' bit, yeah that's not as great, but I also feel that Spike's at fault some as well. It feels like Spike's not making time for anyone but Gabby, we only see it effect Rarity because 22 mins and plot, but it feels like he's being obsessed with Gabby. So luring him away with one time only things, might be a bit underhanded, but it also seems like the only thing he'll make time for. Neither are really being great friends imo but Rarity for most the episode is just trying to come to terms with her feelings for Spike. Its something good for her.

 

The only part that really reflects badly on her, imo, is how she seems to ignore Spike's feelings after Gabby rejects him till Twilight speaks up. But Spike again also seems to realize that he's kinda been hurting Rarity as well through this episode till the end. As it feels like the WHOLE episode could have been avoided by Spike's just making plans later for him and Rarity to do. Like he seems to finally do at the end.

Yeah, to us it was 22 minutes but to Rarity this could have been several days before she managed to get his attention back.

Oh, no, I didn't mean "from day one" kinda thing. I literally meant this episode. She has to walk into his room and scream at him to get his attention. It could have been handled better if they did the whole "brushed off while running into each other" trope. She runs into spike in the places he normally is (the castle, the school, sugar cube corner, ect...) and every time she asks him if he wants to help her, he comes up with an excuse and off he goes. Until rarity gets tired of it and just follows him to figure out why. THEN she goes into the whole divorced parent bit to get spike back. To me, that feels alot less forced.

Yes, again you have to remember you only got 22 minutes to get everything done. The direct approach of Rarity going to Spike telling her she's off the the Gem caves which she knows he likes doing with her and then getting refused. Is the quickest and simplest way to set up the plot.

Divorced parent thing? Wow, I didn't see that there. Hmm, Rarity doesn't have any romantic intentions toward Spike anyway so, eh. Glad she realized that she might have been using Spike and knew that she messed up a good thing Spike had with Gabby and made moves to fix it up.

Hope Spike grows up enough to realize he's not right for her and moves on in the future.

Btw, I would never have though of Gabby, of all people, to be a viable close friend to Spike.

Hmm, the Mane 6 have no romantic partners. Seems like pony Flash Sentry is gone.
