I just realized: it has been 29 days since anypony commented in this thread. No wonder I didn’t get any notifications for it in the last month, lol.
Anyway, Sunny Starscout has developed a lot as a character since this page was last updated. She has shown her love of Nightmare Moon by dressing up as her, shown that she cares more about having a garden that can be used by everypony in Maretime Bay than power or prestige, and has acted as strong moral support for the rest of her friends. It’s honestly really nice to see her develop, and I would love to see some interactions between her and Misty in the future. Who knows, as Cosmas the Explorer told me, Sunny could be the pony who breaks through to Misty and helps her become the pony that she was meant to be, away from Opaline’s shadow. This could be seen as a callback to Twilight being the pony who broke through Starlight’s psychological wall, as well, which is nice.
Hopefully Chapter 3 of MyM will give us a lot more Sunny to work with, so that this thread can be a lot more active.
