Newest My Little Pony episode season 4 (I think it’s the 3rd or fourth episode, the one with Daring Do—spoilers)
I love how Rainbow Dash basically became a fangirl in this episode. The entire time I was thinking how my friends and I interact the same way. Like when Twilight and Rainbow are both discussing the book in excited voices and going back and forth and the others are like WTF cuz their not in on the fandom! That happens all the time in fangirl culture! And how she’s waiting for the new book to come out, and the deadline was pushed back and she couldn’t wait another two months! That’s all of us waiting for new episodes (and books, lol)! I like how because it’s a fandom, it makes reference to the fandom. Like My LIttle Pony is a fandom, so they have an episode with a character or scenario involving fan culture. I love that! They recently did that in Doctor Who, too. It makes us feel like they’re listening. They pay homage to us in the best way possible: through the show we fangirl/fanboy over! How awesome is that!!!
Plus, I see what they did there. With the Harry Potter J.K. Rowling reference. And the whole ring thing was very Lord of the Rings. But, you all knew about the references. Why am I telling you this?
And who knew Daring Do was an actual pony! Ha! But as soon as I saw her in that disguise I knew it was her. Still, it was surprising that she actually exists.
Anyway, I liked it. It was fun to watch the episode and see myself in the fangirly-ness.
