Say what you will about Starlight, but nothing says more about her than the fact she’s the only character we ever saw who outright left someone for dead (in her fight with Chrysalis in S9.) She’s definitely not Princess of Friendship material, and that’s what I like about her. To hell with Twilight’s bourgeoise private school background, Glim’s a mare of the common pony and isn’t afraid to get her hooves dirty. And that’s a good thing.

The only thing I really didn’t like about Equestria Girls were the designs of the characters. I didn’t like the bobblehead look, but I think I understand why it’s like that.

Now that I’ve been watching “Tell Your Tale”, I think I’m starting to like Pipp more. Actually, I think I’m starting to like her more than I ever did Rarity.

And just like most people claiming to be for the people, she was a self serving charlatan who moved into a castle at the first opportunity, got a cushy job through nepotism and casually hung out with royalty and gods.
Truly this super prodigy who grew up in a wealthy gated community is a mare of the people.

And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

I will say this about Pipp. She does seem to be more casual around other ponies. She does seem easier talk to then Rarity.
It’s like this. Pipp is a princess appealing to the people. Rarity is a commoner appealing to those of high taste.

I guess since it’s in discussion, I preferred EQG over the second half of the main show, even though EQG also faltered towards the end.
@Angrybrony
In all fairness, the problem with that special was less Starlight herself and more on the special failing to capitalize on her inclusion in favor of its crappy villain instead

I wasn’t referring to her village- Starlight was no hero of the proletariat, and saying that what she had going on was communist is simply untrue- really it was more like a cult. And while she’s not as working class as, say, Applejack or Pinkie Pie, she also didn’t have a lot of the immense privilege Twilight did. Starlight presumably taught herself magic, and did so well enough she was able to fight Twilight to a draw without too much trouble and had the advantage over Chrysalis when she was powered up by the bell.
I think all of this is why she and Trixie go together so well- self-made mages with a chip on their shoulder trying to make it in the world. Starlight didn’t move in with Twilight because she wanted to, she was coerced when the options were that or actual consequences for what she did. And yes, this nepotism helped her. A lot. But something tells me a pony like Starlight would’ve been just fine on her own.
(I’ll refrain from diving too deep into a political reading of FiM because I don’t have the time or energy for it, but there is a lot to say about Twilight’s background and Equestrian politics as a whole.)

I’ll see your Dazzlings & Forgotten Friendship and raise you Rollercoaster of Friendship & Spring Breakdown. No Starlight there to be found, but plenty of ship tease (on and off an actual ship) and weak climaxes.

@Myoozik
And it’s blatantly obvious that Starlight could see that it wasn’t a desired outcome to begin with based on the picture, even if it was her fault it went wrong (which, again, it wasn’t). Twilight trusted her with that pretty much immediately (Starlight didn’t do this without consent, unlike S6, and it’s not even clear it was even real magic, considering hypnosis exists in reality), but nothing could stop the power of “Inconvenient Pinkie.”
What can I say? Confirmation bias is a thing, I feel like. Anything will seem like something damning if you reach hard enough, whether subconsciously or consciously, even if it actually isn’t by some, possibly most standards.
@GenericArchangel
Well, you can technically argue that happened regarding the Storm King, since… they didn’t really make an effort to catch him with the Staff, or seem torn up about it, but yeah, Starlight comes across as somewhat ruthless, which I like about her.
I also rather like Cadance for the fact she can be compassionate, but ruthless as hell (her end results against major villains: forcibly ejected, blown the hell up).
@Kiryu-Chan
Yeah, I’ve thought it’s unfair to pin the blame for that special being lackluster on Starlight, when I think it’s clear that it was moreso how the villain was the issue, both in her anticlimactic nature, and how she was a downgrade in how she was handled in Movie Magic, which if the resolution for that stood, I have a feeling Juniper would’ve been less despised as an antagonist. Not even sure that special needed a villain.
@Vivace
Special mention goes to Rollercoaster of Friendship in that regard, because of Vignette “I couldn’t care less to the point I’m obviously bored out of my mind wondering about whether they were trapped or erased from existence” Valencia getting a quick and easy anticlimactic reformation.
