How did the CMC (which Faust wanted to make into a preschool spin-off) become the leading source of continuity for this show?
Of course we all knew that Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash knew each other before the show started and know we know the details.
Still, as one from a small town I could sympathize with finding out that life can connect people in ways you’d never expect. Heck just the other day I discovered that a coworker of mine had previously worked with one of my closest friends in another city. So it wasn’t much of suspension of my disbelief to find that all of the mane six were tied by the rainbow caused by RD (heck, there were probably more who found themselves that day across Equestria). It was a nice touch showing that friendships are not tied down by time or space.
Although after seeing this, I’m surprised anyone still thinks RD is a lesbian. If anything, she’s a speed-force-sexual or maybe a lover of winning.
Kudos also to not making Pinkie Pie’s family a bunch of stereotypical fundamentalists and that they could enjoy fun and parties too. Not all rock farmers are the same.
