This week's comic is based on Marks for Effort. I always love a good Crusader episode, and this was a good Crusader episode! Just a good ol' romp with best fillies helping out other fillies in need and Princess Twilight Sparkle treating them like criminals for no reason. And with their new role in the School of Friendship, that's all the main characters present and accounted for on the school's staff! …Is it weird that I was more excited about the CMC becoming tutors than I was about Spike getting wings?
Starlight Glimmer as a guidance counselor is still the funniest thing in the world to me. Don't get me wrong, she's clearly trying, and she's done a good job in the role so far, but… it's Starlight Friggin Glimmer! Founder of Equalism, Destroyer of Timelines, well known for making REALLY bad decisions based on the most minor of provocations! For as much progress as she's made studying friendship and going on adventures for the greater good, it's not like years and years believing that doing the kinds of terrible things she did are okay can just be instantly hammered out by sheer force of will! I also have evidence and reason to believe that she's never ENTIRELY stopped being evil. There's still a Glimmer of deviousness and powerlust in her that drives her to make more bad decisions if she thinks she can get away with it. That or poor impulse control. Either way, the idea of HER guiding young minds towards their futures is… concerning, to say the least. Though it IS a pretty humorous concept to make comics about!
Hope you find the tutoring you need to succeed! Looking forward to the next episode!
