Nightmare Moona by GlancoJusticar Nightmare Moona by GlancoJusticar
Muhahaha! I will be a scary villain for two episodes because kids can't follow a continuous story through the season! (That's actually sad.)

She was the most amazing villain of the whole serious, in my humble opinion. Yes, even better than Chrysalis. May her spirit and her goal be remembered forever.

better than Discord? D: What makes her so great? (serious question. Why do you feel this way? I would like to better understand.)

I rather liked her design. Discord annoyed me. Very much.

The reason for their short term villains is that Hasbro wants to keep the series' action to a bare minimum. After all, it's supposed to be a Slice of Life.

In that case, it would be the job of fanfic authors to churn out the epic fantasy tales out of FIM then.

Exactly that's what makes the series work: Fandom is the series' leash owner, not the other way around. this is known as the "Sherlock Holmes Fanship Effect".

That's the point, except that Hasbro don't like story or myth arcs because they want every episode to be a self-contained story...

I know. But do they really think myth arcs would discover people from buying their toys?

:iconbrutalityinc:
BrutalityInc Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
No, they think the kids are too dumb to understand long winding story arcs. And they want it to be 'edutainment' - episodes with a moral.

:iconmatt0044:
matt0044 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013
Yeah, because their Transformers franchise is a total stranger to that for sure.

Honestly, the episodic format isn't really bad. Hell, it make it more accessible to kids or adults AKA potential Bronies who can start at any point. It's not like the show has too.

True. This strategy makes it more accessible, therefore profitable.

What's wrong with a moral being in the story?

Nothing, only that it would be even better if they include a season-spanning story along with it!

"because kids can't follow a continuous story through the season!"

Power Rangers (among others) would like a word with this...

Plus, I'm fine with the episodic nature of the series.

That didn't stop Grand Galloping Gala from being mentioned and foreshadowed before the finale. That's right GGG was the most feared villain in the series!

Although... I admit that an on going antagonist (for each season) would be cool. I don't mind the lack of it but it'd be cool.

True but it was mentioned here and there and even then, you didn't need to hear them to be prepared for Episode 26.

I love them wings and the way the legs appear here. Sharp and viciously curved like blades. At the same time, she reminds me of some gigantic thin-winged butterfly, in a way. And the catlike quality of her head and face is captured very well here. I like the way you went about making her black while giving her volume by the simple expedient of a bright outline on the left-side surfaces and some right-side ones. I also rather like how you went about livening up her mane, again simple yet works well.
Well done!
