Jay’s Month of Screams, Day 6- My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Due to the impending finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I’ve gotten the show stuck in my head. All day. Since I’m doing a Halloween Special a day, I figured I’d roll with it and watch one from the show.
In this season five episode, Fluttershy decides to try and face her biggest fear: going out on Nightmare Night. All her friends are thrilled about it, but the poor thing’s still too scared to enjoy the holiday.
So, instead of getting scared, Fluttershy decides it would be better to be the scarer. After a failed first attempt, Fluttershy manages to do the impossible and scare the daylights out of her friends! Despite this, she decides she can’t go through with making her friends feel like they’re in actual danger. Nightmare Night is just not for her in the end, and she goes back to staying in her cottage.
Not My Cup of Tea
As much as I enjoy the show, it’s hard to see something like My Little Pony as scary even at its most tense moments. It’s still a kids show, so it has to restrain itself. Regardless, I was impressed with how scary an experience Fluttershy made for her friends. If I got chase by a giant monster or attacked by a giant bat in a haunted maze, I’d be scared too. In a good way.
I guess I’m the end, MLP Halloween specials aren’t for me; kind of like how Nightmare Night isn’t for Fluttershy. It was still worth trying, and a fun way to prepare for the show’s series finale.
By the way, IDW’s continuing the show in comic book form. Happy Halloween!
