- What I say: I'm fine.
- What I'm thinking: Can you believe how badly the fandom has treated Roxy Lalonde since she was first introduced? They either make her Dirk's best friend who gives him relationship advice when he's upset. Or they give her alcohol and a cat. Her personality is more than just alcohol, a cat, and Dirk's therapist, or just a funny prop. Where's fan content with her as a scientist? A coder? A gamer? A fanfic writer? Where's the in-depth meta about her overcoming addiction or her fixation on femininity or her relationship regarding her mom and the post-apocalyptic world she grew up in, or her compulsive-heterosexuality when she's obviously more comfortable flirting with girls? When the fuck is the fandom going to respect Roxy Lalonde?
Jitters, Starlight's not grown at ALL as a character since the beginning of Season 6. She's had many relapses regarding her old behavior, and she's suffered no actual punishment for her previous actions. She was forgiven almost immediately, and her redemption came off as less convincing than DISCORD'S. Despite her guilt, she was never punished, and it allowed her to develop a huge guilt complex because of it. She's a mopey sadsack of a pony with less going for her than a RANDOM BACKGROUND PONY.
