MLP Liveblog Chat Thingy: “Twilight Time”

My Kickstarter campaign to fund My Little Po-Mo volume 2 is here!

And as long as you have your wallets out, two more worthy causes to which you can give: You can help Viga pay for art school (and earn some custom art in the process), or you can help the family of Michael Morones, the bullied Brony boy who attempted suicide.

How to participate in the liveblog chat:

Option 1: Whenever you watch the episode, comment on this post as you watch with whatever responses you feel like posting!

Option 2: Go to Enter a nickname, then for the Channels field enter ##rabbitcube, and finally fill in the Captcha and hit Connect! We’ll be watching the episode and commenting there starting at just after 3:00 p.m. EST. Not that that is one hour later than usual because I have a 2 p.m. panel. After the chat, I will update this post with a log of the conversation.

Chatlog below the cut!

[15:05] <@Sylocat> Magic lessons!
[15:05] <@Sylocat> Show off
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Uh oh… helping the CMCs?
[15:06] <Froborr> I would be happy not to get a cutie mark in sweeping.
[15:06] == AlicornPriest [826ccdd0@gateway/web/freenode/session] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[15:06] <Decoy_Octopus> this is an oddly long cold open, isn’t it?
[15:06] <@Sylocat> Yes
[15:07] <Froborr> A little, yeah.
[15:07] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[15:07] <@Sylocat> Oh jeez…
[15:07] <@Sylocat> “Killlllllllll meeeeeeeee….”
[15:07] <Froborr> Great, they’ve created carnivorous evil-apples.
[15:07] <@Sylocat> “Must be blood. Must be fresh.”
[15:07] <Froborr> So, this is the episode where Applebloom has to feed her prize-winning super-apple-seedling blood, right?
[15:07] <Decoy_Octopus> calling it, this will somehow be twilight’s key episode
[15:07] <@Sylocat> (those are the only lines I remember from Little Shop of Horrors)
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Pipsqueak!
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[15:08] <@Sylocat> And Twist
[15:08] <Decoy_Octopus> oh hey pip isn’t dead
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Wait, Diamond Tiara doing acrobatics?
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Oh, of course she’s not
[15:08] <@Sylocat> Oh yikes
[15:08] <Froborr> lol
[15:08] <@Sylocat> It’s Alfred!
[15:08] <Decoy_Octopus> she has a butler?
[15:09] <@Sylocat> Uh oh, fantasy sequence
[15:09] <@Sylocat> Mad scientist Apple Bloom!
[15:09] <Froborr> Sweetie Belle for President
[15:09] <@Sylocat> Oh yes, please, Sweetie Belle, toss her into the lake
[15:09] <Froborr> …oh, just a dream sequence
[15:10] <@Sylocat> Ew
[15:10] <Decoy_Octopus> twilight isn’t a princess you dopes
[15:10] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[15:10] <Decoy_Octopus> what gave you that idea
[15:10] <@Sylocat> Exactly what they were chiding her for
[15:11] <@Sylocat> So, they’re actually addressing the fact that Twilight is now a princess
[15:11] <Decoy_Octopus> wait is that the first time they’ve explicitly said in-show that she’s an alicorn
[15:11] <@Sylocat> Well, the first time since the premiere, I think
[15:11] <Froborr> No, I’m pretty sure they said it in the season-3 finale.
[15:11] <Decoy_Octopus> I don’t remember if they said it in the season 3 fin-oh okay
[15:11] <Froborr> Rarity said it there IIRC
[15:11] <@Sylocat> Cutie Mark Crusader Social Climbers and Connection Users
[15:12] <Froborr> Cutie Mark Crusader Power Brokers
[15:12] <Decoy_Octopus> oh hey someone acknowledged her hair is weird
[15:12] <@Sylocat> “A bold design choice.”
[15:12] <@Sylocat> So they think “adorkable” is just her fashion choice
[15:12] <@Sylocat> Oh boy
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Wait, we don’t see the Little Shop of Horrors thing again?
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Oh no
[15:13] <Decoy_Octopus> oh hey obnoxious titledrop
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Of course, once the CMCs now get a taste of popularity…
[15:13] <Froborr> To be fair, Twilight is a better teacher than Cheerilee
[15:13] <Decoy_Octopus> cheerilee’s a teacher?
[15:13] <@Sylocat> Wait, they don’t seem corrupted by the attention?
[15:13] <Froborr> Then again, Cheerilee is a pretty terrible teacher
[15:14] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[15:14] <@Sylocat> Sweetie Belle truly is Rarity’s sister
[15:14] <Decoy_Octopus> of course sweetie belle is excited about thi-darnit sylo
[15:14] <@Sylocat> Sorry ^_^;
[15:14] <Froborr> Is Sweetie Belle’s voice getting deeper?
[15:15] <@Sylocat> Oh yikes
[15:15] <Decoy_Octopus> yeah I thought it sounded weird
[15:15] <Froborr> That last line in the previous scene seemed unusually deep
[15:15] <@Sylocat> Whatever happened to Luna being Pipsqueak’s favorite princess ever?
[15:15] <Decoy_Octopus> fdf twilight eating
[15:15] <@Sylocat> (thus that Assassin’s Creed comic)
[15:15] <@Sylocat> Hay burgers
[15:15] <Froborr> …She just used the burger to wipe ketchup off her face.
[15:16] <@Sylocat> Uh oh, and Twilight’s blundering right into the trap
[15:16] <Froborr> Twilight is Princess of the Slobs
[15:16] <Decoy_Octopus> wait pinkie why are you here
[15:16] == totient [] has quit [Quit: – Chat comfortably. Anywhere.]
[15:16] <@Sylocat> Red light, green light
[15:17] <Froborr> Scootaloo is really Rainbow Dash’s protege, isn’t she?
[15:17] <@Sylocat> I’m surprised Featherweight isn’t there, given how he sold them out in Ponyville Confidential
[15:18] <Froborr> Featherweight is there.
[15:18] <@Sylocat> He is? I didn’t see him
[15:18] <Froborr> He just took the photo of the CMC!
[15:18] <@Sylocat> Like Decoy and I both said, Sweetie Belle is Rarity’s sister
[15:19] <@Sylocat> And now Apple Bloom and Scootaloo are falling into the same trap
[15:19] <@Sylocat> Come on, CMCs, invite everypony else except DT/SS
[15:20] <@Sylocat> …Or not
[15:20] <@Sylocat> Oh jeez, one of the kids is drooling, literally
[15:20] == Decoy_Octopus [63c3af4b@gateway/web/freenode/session] has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[15:20] <@Sylocat> RUN FOR YOUR LIVES
[15:20] <Froborr> So… the CMC are girls 4-7 and the other kids are the bronies, right?
[15:20] <@Sylocat> GAH!
[15:21] <@Sylocat> Wait, she’s… she doesn’t… huh? What is this…
[15:21] <@Sylocat> Ah, of course, she’s setting up a structure
[15:21] <@Sylocat> Hey, in the background, that’s a diagram of the Mystery Box
[15:22] <Froborr> Hey, it is. Interesting.
[15:22] <@Sylocat> I suppose Twilight does want to prove she’s not above them all
[15:23] <@Sylocat> Wait, why is Twilight surprised they haven’t improved?
[15:23] <@Sylocat> Ah, she’s using Rarity’s techniques from The Crystal Empire
[15:24] <@Sylocat> Only they’re not quite… huh?
[15:24] <@Sylocat> HAHAHAHAH
[15:24] <@Sylocat> Well, it’s better than they were last week
[15:25] <@Sylocat> Wait, is that her key to the box?
[15:25] <Froborr> This seems possible!
[15:25] <Froborr> Haha, Spike is suffering. Sucks to be him.
[15:26] <@Sylocat> Ah, so it’s not her key
[15:26] <Froborr> Huh, surprisingly no.
[15:26] <@Sylocat> That was… a weird episode
[15:27] <Froborr> Yeah… don’t know if I liked it?
[15:27] <Froborr> It kept not going where I expected… except then it did?
[15:27] <@Sylocat> Weirdly paced, a bit of cringe comedy
[15:27] <@Sylocat> (also, the CMC advanced with their skills a bit too fast)
[15:28] <Froborr> To be fair, we don’t know how much time elapsed before the final scene.

[15:29] <@Sylocat> Ah, that’s true
[15:29] <@Sylocat> I was also hoping that DT/SS would get a bit of egg on their faces at some point
[15:30] <@Sylocat> But oh well… it had to make the point that, it’s okay they didn’t get any social advancement out of this in the end
[15:31] <@Sylocat> (also, I suppose Twilight will have to get her key last)

  1. My apologies for suddenly leaving, my internet spontaneously died and didn't come back until a bit afterward. I thought it was a pretty good episode, honestly.
