I almost forgot about my FFF by PepperSupreme I almost forgot about my FFF by PepperSupreme
foulsitter friend forever

The following is negative criticism on the episode. I have no intention to ruin your fun if you happen to enjoyed it. I say this because the comic really IS intended to be tongue-in-cheek. Luckily, most of you have been able to understand that. :)

"A Canterlot Wedding" was a very badly written episode.
Read a couple of my complaints here:

Two other complaints:
- How did Twilight get a princess foalsitter? She wasn\'t even a student of Celestia yet.
- Brother has no time to write a letter but has time to make the decision of marriage. Yeah...and when you decide to marry you don't marry immediately, y'know.

On the bright side: I loved Pinkie Pie and Rarity in this.
Animation was swell too, but that's often the case. My complaints are about the writing.

I agree completly about that episode. I really felt the writers "shit the bed" with that particular story plot. We find out that twilight has a brother that we have never heard of before that apparently she is really close to. No believes here something may be wrong even though it appears only her brother is being manipulated with magic when she is the one most often first to notice correctly something is wrong, not even the princess who should recognize that Cadence has become absolute ragging bitch seemingly at random. Finally there is the fact the "Goddes" gets shacked down witht little to no effort. WHAT THE HELL! Wow. I really hope this episode was some kind of major accident on the part of needing to pull shit out of the ass really quick or I need to start worrying about season 3.

I kow this is an old comment.
But having an brother you are close to yet none of your friends know it does happens in real life. I'm close to my brother but I never bring him to conversation neither does he with his friends. Siblings is one of those topics that don't come up that often unless some one ask you if you have them.

Also no one beliving Twilight seems that is part of her character and the other charcters (even the princess) just wrote of Cadence being a bitch as being under preasure (or her period on or the other). Also Celestia god like power levels are mostly a fandom thing. I don't blame the writers for the flaws. Most of them exist becasue this was a 2 parter instead of a 3 parter. There is just so much you can write for 40 minutes.

Shining Armor and Cadence were the biggest disappoint I found in the My Little Pony's episodes.

Not only did Cadence have the powers of love and had Celestia and Luna's alicorn apperance (which I had assume were godlike and could never be copied) she was marrying one of the main's characters brother who we get the privillage of meeting at the end of season two after not hearing of him. It annoyed me and still does. Hell, I had hoped Cadence just went bad whose powers of love took a turn for the worse but then incomes villian that explains everything~.

Why isn't Shining Armor mention? Did they have a fight? Is Twilight just to private to mention her own family members? But then theres the whole, "I can't socialize, I AM AWKWARD~" She seem pretty fine to me in that little song. Just irked me how lazy the new characters were shown. He had so much potential, I would of been more understanding if he stopped talking to her to chase his dreams, but that stops him from being a 'good and kind brother'~ I could guess all night possible ideas as why they weren't mention until now but eh, I will give the writers a benefit of a doubt (just please make it proper whatever writing gods that are out there) and hope they explain in the future in season 3.

They lacked personality and a proper backround story for me to get behind, honestly. Its one of the few episodes I wouldn't rewatch, that and Twilight's weird breakdown episode and the introduction to Discord. All were sloppy, but whatever, I will just enjoy the Little Mermaid ripoff song.

Old comment but let me answer the question.

I have a brother. And we are really close. But I never mention him to friends unless they ask me if I have a brother, same goes for him and his friends. Siblings don't really come into conversations that often. And even with having a brother I was socially awkward to the point I didn't have a social life until 7th grade then I moveto Florida and didn't have one again until college. It happens. I think that's why I like Shining Armor.

As for Twilight accusing Cadence without (much) evidence, she just forgot. Yeah, it probably slipped the writer's mind but you could look at it as Twilight getting to emotional and thereby making a bad decision. MLP:FiM a slice of life show and in real life people tend to forget things when caught up in their own emotions as well as just the heat of the moment. Pony's are Equestria's people so... yeah. Maybe it wasn't intended like that by the writer but this is just me, a simple fan, making a simple interpretation.

Plus, these retconning for each episode can be explained in that there's not plot to the show. Each episode's a snapshot of the lives of the Mane 6 and the CMCs as many have pointed out and each episode focuses on different things and events. Like one episode could take place a few uneventful days after the last or a month. As such, these past lessons may slip the minds of the mane six after a while. Happens to the best of us and Twilight needed to be reminded of these lessons to face Discord. Call it lazy writing if you want but I can see a good in-universe reason as to why.

And I'm perfectly aware that I look like some fanboy who can't stand other criticizing something they like. I'm not trying to be that guy at all but rather I'm just looking at things from a different perspective and maybe give people food for thought. You're free to see thing the way you want to but I'm just giving out my two cents.

I feel like Phoenix Wright in the courtroom, you know?

As in Twilight forgot what she told Pinkie Pie about evidence. She was upset that her brother forgot about her and how (evil) Cadence was acting bitchy to everyone so she already was a tad biased when she saw Cadence controlling her own brother. It just slipped her mind. One would call it lazy writing and I wouldn't put it past said critic but I myself think that Twilight, as a person/pony, merely forgot. We're all a bit biased and hypocritical at times without realizing it until it's too late. I've realized this about myself and others many times. MLP shows this and being a slice-of-life TV series, it works (well, when not abused).

I dunno about Cadence being a princess and a foalsitter. Maybe she own Twi's parents a favor or liked the job. I dunno. As for Shining Armor being forgotten, it could be a "You never asked" kind of situation with the other Mane five. I mean, when did they ask about Twilight's family before? It's similar to how Akira Toriyama wrote Dragon Ball (Z)? Plus, Twilight did question Shining Armor's abrupt marriage decision in the show.

My problem was not the sudden bro, but the sudden song that was made for us to buy this "sudden bro" stuff. The song was made heavy by adding that this was Twi's only childhood friend...only to introduce us to another, destroying the weight of the forced song and by not giving Candance a song it just becomes hilariously bad. As if they wrote without looking what they already wrote.

To me, baby(foal)sitters don't really count as friends. There's just paid people/ponies who just take care of a child/filly while the parents go out to have fun. A friend is someone who DOESN'T get paid to be with you but hangs out with you because, well, (s)he's your friend. For all we know, Cadence could've been Twi's foal-sitter for like a month. Plus, I've had friends before that I haven't seen for YEARS since I was a kid. Most of whom I've forgotten their names. So I understand how Twilight wouldn't remember her childhood foalsitter. It was probably a long time as the episode implies.

A song for Cadence however would've been nice but I don't see it as something to pull hair out over it. Maybe they would've but thought that there really wasn't that much time to fit it into the episode. Time constraints can be such a bother, right? Plus, it's usually one song per episode if I remember correctly.

You do know that Hasbro intervened and outright told them they had to make a season finale about a princess getting married to a cast member's family, right? On the other hoof, this is exactly how I felt about the first half of the special

When you are a good writer you must be able to deal with it. My problem was not so much about Twi having a bro, but more how they went quite dramatic over this fact because he was the only one she had, only to introduce is to a secong one she had who did not get an epic feels song. Just a tweek here and there in timing and it could easily all be improved. It just felt as only the writer made it without any editors on board.

I also had problems about that, but going into the show i assumed Cadance was using mind control on everyone and that barrier that shinning armor had up was also being used to spread her spell. Kinda figured 'asking rainbow dash to do a sonic rainboom' was a way of spreading the effects over all of equestria. It made sense to me, Twilight can forget to mention her brother for a while, but the sudden appearance of a wedding? seems suspicious, didn't know who cadence was until she 'saw' her. and how everyone just accepted this 3rd alicorn acting like it was all normal. but yeah, didn't happen like that.

Yeah, it was kinda random. I still liked it, in fact it's still a top episode for me, just it's low on the making sense chart:) A quick reference to her brother in say 3 episodes of season 1, first episode and a few others and then 1 or 2 in season 2 would have helped a lot. Like work him into season 2 opening, at least nightmare moon swatted aside some guards, discord faced no opposition besides the mane 6.

I can't think of many good episodes to fit Cadence into though, maybe briefly in The Cutie Mark Chronicles and perhaps in Rarity's canterlot episode in season 2. I do know that they need a few more episodes with characters older then the mane 6, would be nice to see that the whole world does not revolve around them , although it's the standard way to do such a show.
