Starswirl = Discord theory? Do tell.
Spoiler:
There's a headcanon going around the Starswirl is Discord. Starswirl was a very, very powerful magician. Someone said they worked at the MLP voice recording section, and they overherd some Discord saying he was Starswirl. Looks like it's bullshit now, since the Discord episode aired, but the headcanon persists. In the Discord episode, he said he's never had any friends. We've seen in Party of One, Sonic Rainboom, and minorly in other episodes that failure to follow their cutie mark results in mental instability. Starswirl dedicated his whole life to magic, and that likely was his cutie mark. In the most recent episode, Celestia said he could never get the destiny spell to work, due to not knowing the magic of friendship (no friends). It is possible the newly maddened archmage flipped his shit and turned himself into a deformed mad god.
Spoiler:
That would be awesome, truth be told. My personal thing is that Starswirl = Gandalf visiting Equestria, but still.

Spoiler:

I fucking loved the episode. I viewed it as an original attempt as a finale, and the songs sold the episode for me. There were definitely problems near the end of it (some of the background scenes were a little lazy), but I got such a high off of the first half of the episode it didn't matter that much to me. To me, the alicorn thing strikes me as merely acknowledgement of all the things Twilight has learned over the course of the series; and it works as an allegory for Twilight finally leaving the nest and growing up a bit. She's had 64 episodes, about 2+ years, she's definitely learned enough to advance at this point.

I loved 6 out of the 7 songs, and I think that right there colors my perception of the episode because the songs were the episode. Now, to see what they do come Season 4.

Spoiler:
I'm quite okay with the episode, the worst I can say is that it felt quite boring because all the spoilers that I have read. I knew that twi fails spell that switches cutie marks, fixes that and makes new spell and is promoted.

Then there are the songs which I felt were too many.

I'm looking forward to the next two related episodes which I trust will be more interesting with the transformation out of the way. Ill have to try to avoid major spoilers from now on though.

The only thing about the episode I liked was the songs. Everything else is best not spoken about.

I must say that a musical episode was a great idea and a gambit that almost worked. Princess Twilight is still an incredibly stupid idea though and wasn't adequately covered up.

Hey look at me, all caught up for once.

So the finale...interesting episode, I guess. Was rather, um, fast paced. Felt like most of it was sped through so that they could get to the "hareh princess twilight" part in the same episode. Didn't mind all the music, helped the episode work as well as it did. So I dunno, I liked the idea, presentation could've been better. Twilight being an alicorn is cool I guess?

Beware, for prolonged exposure to my mind may cause feelings of indecision and vagueness. =P

The new IDW pony comic came out today, and I'm seeing tons and tons of pictures from it.

Being a Chrysalis fan, me gusta.

As someone who thinks the comics are awesome, Chrysalis and the CMC completely steal the show for me. Chrysalis is the main villain in this part of the series afterall.

Starting with #5 is going to be a new story arc.

I haven't read it, but there's a bunch of pictures going around from it. I very much like Chrysalis.

The new arc is going to be a new Nightmare Moon.

How not? The show's got a massive adult fanbase, a lot of whom are the kind who are into comics.

...Comic stores? Surely you have one local.

The Magic the Gathering website has a locator for their official re-sellers, as should a lot of the major comic brands and probably a lot of other major nerd businesses, too. Most of these places (I'd bet pretty much all of them) are going to be comics and games stores, if you need to look up any places near you.

Digital distribution works, too, if you don't have a problem with it (or want it on tablet, kindle, PC, what have you). Comixology is a pretty good site for that.

EDIT: There's the main series (which has 4 so far) that is more adventure-oriented, and also a side-series that currently has only one out that is more slice-of-life style.

I personally love the art of the first four issues. Issue #5 will be drawn by someone else, however.

Tornado:

Theme Song for a Pegasi with a Tornado Cutie Mark...

Possible professions relating to it may include assassination and/or battlefield destruction... Yes, I have imaginations for this. Of course, there are more benign applications... but meh.

Did I have to not know about this a couple weeks ago when I was far away in Fredericton at the only comic store that I know exists even remotely close to me?

So, anything show related happening in the next couple of months, or was that the end of it?

Well, Season 4 is sometime next winter, so I think we're just in that limbo state between seasons.

I have no doubt. I was lucky enough that I noticed before the majority of users noticed, bar Andal.
