If you ever somehow become a Catholic saint, be aware that they will harvest your bones and build altars around them.

Director:" CUT! Take ten while we check the gate."
Spike lights up a cigarette, applejack cracks a beer, a make up pony trots out to glue pinkie's cutie mark back on. Twilight plays on her smart phone and rarity doffs her wig and scratches her head. Fluttershy screams at the animal handlers to get the damn things away from her, and rainbow dash demands to be let off the fly by wire setup.
All the while the producers curses the whole lot of them, and the hasbro rep counts his money while raiding the craft services table.

It's not that you're behind the curve so much as it is that I have spent way too much time on dA since joining the herd.

With Pinkie Pie, why this episode? While there's some episodes where she badly needs to be put on mute, it's sad that it happened in the episode where she's trying to defend her family's livelihood. I guess that's amplified by my desire to know more about her background. Was surprised at the number of people who thought the rock farm was made up.

I think that she's an alchemist or herbalist, but her knowledge of the magic of plants and animals can be more generally applied. She also seems to be a literal Witch Doctor, as she knows how to fix or fight magical ailments. The only magic she's been implied to have seemed to be stage illusions, but she still knows how spell casting magic works.
I really want to know more about Zecora's backstory. So much stuff they could do with that.

That's what makes it interesting. She's that super informed mentor who genuinely can't do the things the "chosen one" needs to do as opposed to just sitting in a cave somewhere. It's also interesting that Zecora (and to a lesser degree, Pinkie) specializes in more broad Old World type information as opposed to specific wizard spells.

Zecora knows how to use the fauna of the Everfree to make a number of potions, was able to diagnose a dragon, and knew enough about magic duels and magicians to come up with a winning strategy. She might not have cast spells, but she's a pretty decent Batman kind of character, a niche that no one else in the show fits.
If we never get to see Zecora outmaneuver and defeat a spell caster without using any magic herself, I'll be really sad.

Fauna is animals (like fauns), flora is plants (like flowers).
She might also use the fauna in her potions too, its not like we see EVERYTHING she does.
