i like the pretty rainbow

In regards to the inconsistencies with RD and Rarity, a lot of it stems from the fact that there are so many different writers for the show, and each one is simply more in tune with some characters than others. Season 6 especially had a lot of new writers.

That’s true! Some of the writers are also just better than the others.

But, what I was saying with regards to Rainbow and Rarity wasn’t just about the fact that they’re written inconsistently. They all get that a lot, and honestly I’d say Pinkie gets it much more than anyone else.

What bothers me about Rarity and Rainbow is that their moments of having less depth portray them in a way that’s really stereotypical and that I think shows a lot about what the writers think about these kinds of women. Like there’s a big stereotype about charming, beautiful women that they’re deceptive and use their charm and beauty to manipulate men into giving them what they want. And likewise butch women are stereotyped as aggressive and rude and mean. And sometimes I feel like the show goes a little overboard with these stereotypes with how they write Rarity and Rainbow.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
