I thought it might be fun to make a list of who each of the villains were inspired by. Excluding Equestria Girls, they don't seem particularly based off anyone else
Nightmare Moon - Maleficent, with elements of the Evil Queen
Discord - Q
Queen Chrysalis - Ursula and Maleficent, with elements of Voldemort and Lamia
King Sombra - Sauron
Lord Tirek - Tirek from G1, with elements of Arabus and Lavan
Starlight Glimmer - Can't think of anyone in particular offhand, probably just a mix of Sunset Shimmer, communists/dictators, and time travelers
Pony of Shadows - Venom
The Storm King - Emperor PalpatineRead more >
Tomorrow is the sixth anniversary of the day I started watching MLP.

I'm sure you all know what they are, and if you're a newbie, and knowing it might help you give an answer, I'll tell you in a reply comment.

I have found two with the interest I kinda share with Applejack, though one of them isn't talking to me anymore.
But I haven't found anyone with a particular interest in the other one, except for one who finds some of my favorite types to be dull, and doesn't talk much in any event.
So, is there a way of finding someone else with these inter…Read more >
I stopped watching past Triple Threat for reasons I'm sure I've said before.
Of course, the second half of Season 7 will probably join its first half on Netflix before Season 8 comes out, but I'm not sure if what I read about any of the new episodes, both released and upcoming, sound that appealing.
But... I'm sure you all know the recent Season 8 announcement. And if it ends one of two ways I'm sure you all know (hint: Sombra or Discord?), I'd have to watch Season 7 to go by this official end of the arc over my headcanon.
However, and I can't believe I'm saying this... I actually WANT her to fly away again, because I'm not sure I want to watch the rest of Season 7.
Aside from the synopsis of the episodes sounding not that interesting...

Of course, I will publish the blog first then edit it so it doesn't show up on the feed and spoil it for anyone watching the feed
So, assuming the book is as accurate as Legend of Everfree (though as with Equestria Girls it confuses a character's arm with his tail):
