    I'd like to discuss if the magical auras are visible in-universe or are they only there for the audience. What do you think?

    Yes, ponies see them

    • In the official Celestia's short video she mentions different colors of the magical auras. But the canonicity of this video is dubious, since even the official comics were sometimes contradicted by the show.
    • In the image near the end of the episode Amending Fences, there is Twilight with her aura visible. Please note that it is an in-universe photo.

    No, ponies don't see them

    • In Winter Wrap Up, when Twilight uses magic on the snowplow, Applejack merely suspects she used magic instead of seeing it outright (the aura was all over the snowplow).
    • In MMMystery on the Friendship Express, in what is supposedly P…

    • Queen Chrysalis (we know this will happen from the animatic)
    • More changelings!
    • How did the Mane 5 first met and become friends?
    • Princess Cadance's backstory (why is she an Alicorn? How was she adopted by Celestia?)
    • Dwelling on the fact that Flurry Heart is an unearned Alicorn (mentioned in The Crystalling - Part 1)
    • The Pillars of Old Equestria and Stygian (I have a hunch each of them is going to have their own episode), I would also like them to interact with Discord
    • The return of Twist
    • An episode with reformed Diamond Tiara and maybe a friendship problem with Silver Spoon
    • More of Applejack's parents and Grand Pear
    • More Trixie!
    • More Discord! Maybe another song.
    • Characters from the Movie (Celaeno, Capper, Tempest, hippogriffs, maybe even Songbird Sere…

    I have rated all of the episodes (well, not all — some are still unreleased) and I have used 1-10 grades for that:

    1 — disaster
    2 — awful
    3 — bad
    4 — poor
    5 — mediocre
    6 — fair
    7 — good
    8 — great
    9 — excellent
    10 — masterpiece

    Note: These are just my subjective opinions. You do not have to agree with them.

    "Retcons" page idea

    August 9, 2012 by Xannot

    I'm thinking about writing an article named "Retcons". Retcon is a subsequent alteration of previously established facts in the world of fiction. They may be very minor to the storyline, but some can have a stronger effect on it.

    Some retcons that I thought of:

    1. Mayor Mare's mane color (semi-large retcon) - it's improbable that they were thinking of Mayor's hair as dyed all the time from the beginning of the show.
    2. Shining Armor (major retcon) - Twilight wasn't meant to have a brother, he never appeared or was mentioned before the wedding episodes.
    3. Derpy (major retcon) - she was just a crowd-filler pony with no personality and normal eyes, but joined the cast because of fandom.
    4. Apple Strudel's appearance (very minor recton) - he was mentioned in…
