So think about Fluttershy's insults to Rarity and Pinkie Pie for a minute.  She insulted their lives' callings.  Everypony dreams of the day they find their calling, earning their cutie mark in the process.  She berated and belittled that.

I mean, what she did was rude, but if you consider just how much a pony's life calling means to them, then she was indeed a monster.

I'm starting to think what Discord did wasn't turn people opposite, but essentially turn their personalities inside out - the deepest part of them that they are quite capable of but subconsiously deny suddenly became their main personality.

Rarity innately has the capacity for great selfishness, Pinkie Pie has the capacity for great party-poopering, Fluttershy has the capacity for great meanness, Applejack probably has the capacity to be deceitful, and hell, the very first thing we saw Twilight Sparkle do was be an antisocial loner.
Also apparently Faust said that Luna turned evil due to external forces
please have discord come back with an epic battle
Really? Yes!! My world-view is confirmed!

Loved the episode. I love how Rarity being "assertive" is just being a tease. :p

*perks up* So...she started talking like Raven, then?



She could easily do that, y'know. :P

So was anyone else reminded of the PPG episode where Bubbles goes "hardcore," or is it just me?

Nightmare Trixie would be awesome...

The fanfic The Dresden Fillies features her as a villain.

That it does.  I've been so busy reading 'My Little Denarians' that I'd forgotten about that one.

So I see that the story I've been waiting on for forever is finally updated.  I'm talking of course about The Sun is Tired.

Now that you reminded me of that PPG episode, yes does remind me of it.

I have to check that fanfic out.

On the subject of fanfics, I can't wait for the Iron Will fanfics, I hope someone does a background story for him, because I have a great idea of making him into an ex-pro wrestler for some reason.

B:  Several of the other pre-readers were happy about that themselves.  Me, I haven't read it.

One thing I like about the episode is that at the end, he was actually very reasonable.  He wasn't a monster, he was just teaching others wrong.

My personal fanon for him is that he was actually bullied a lot growing up, and had to teach himself how to handle it, since no one else would help him.  And then he saw others being bullied, so he taught them to do the same.

When he was met with non-violent resistance for the first time in the form of Fluttershy, it surprised him and essentially changed his viewpoint on things.

I suppose he could've been a pro-wrestler along the lines.  He certainly acts like one XD

In case you can't tell, I like Iron Will.  He's sorta like Gilda's opposite.

That's a great background for him, I really like the idea of him being bullied when he was younger, and is the reason why he acts the way he does.

No wonder he reminds me of a pro-wrestler, I like him too.

Yeah, there was nothing wrong with Will, just his methods. I quite enjoyed the episode overall. Not my favorite, by far, but not the weakest either. Plus, I know it made N. de Plum happy. Yay.

I thought the episode was very good. It was nice to see the "bad" side of Fluttershy, even though she was doing it the way she was taught by Iron Will. She just thought she was indeed being more assertive and did not see how she was turning into a bully. At the end she eventually figured out that she can have the courage to tell other ponies "no" and to be able to put her hoof down instead of being a push over.

I do hope that her newfound assertiveness won't take over her shy, domicile personality as that is what I like about her and I absolutely hate it when writers of shows try to change a character's persona.

You know, that looks really uncomfortable. I can only imagine that most pegasi would kind of freak out if their wings were restricted like that.

Yes, Rainbow Dash endured it in the Running of the Leaves, but her fidgeting implied it was incredibly uncomfortable for her.
