I wondered if there'd be any Equestria Girls stuff this year since there's the theatrical Pony movie coming out, and I was thrilled to learn of a three-episode mini-series in the summer! I desperately hoped that it wouldn't be like the camp movie, which is the only one of the movies I'm not crazy about.

The first episode aired in the U.S. this past day, and I am thrilled! It's back to the lovely formula of the first three movies: urban setting and the girls seem to be normal, i.e., no permanent powers like the camp movie made it look like they'd have! It was a great little slice-of-life story and it brought back some of the Crystal Prep girls, and in a much better way than I think the book handled them last year. If it wasn't that the Canterlot High girls were trying to raise money to repair the camp, I'd think that the mini-series happened instead of the camp movie.

Slightly torn now on my opinion of Sour Sweet, as she didn't seem to be much like herself once she started acting nice, as opposed to Sugarcoat, who was able to adapt her usual personality to being a nicer person. That would admittedly be hard to do with Sour Sweet, since her keynote trait is basically being two-faced and having a super bad attitude despite acting sweet to your face. I've been pondering on whether there would be a way for her to give her trademark two different opinions on things while being nice. I think that would be difficult to pull off, and probably in the end, it's better for her to get out of that rut ... even though then I'm not sure her name makes much sense anymore, LOL. But it was lovely to see the Crystal Prep girls finally shape up regardless, and I hope that if they appear further, more can be done with Sour Sweet. She is basically just genuinely sweet as a good guy and I could really get to like her that way. (And possibly further regret not getting that doll when Wal-Mart had her for $4. I didn't get her because I did not like her, and then when I thought maybe I should for that price, all the dolls of her had vanished, sigh.) Maybe part of me is having a hard time believing that she could have turned so completely around that she doesn't have that key personality trait or deep-seated bad attitude anymore, especially since we haven't focused much on her as a character to see what's really going on in her head, and my real issue with her now is waiting for the other shoe to drop. But I did really like how she and Rarity seemed to be hitting it off! That was nice to see.

Finished the crossover fic and have moved on to the fic it directly led into. I was so anxious to write the climax that I wrote it out first, LOL. Now I'm trying to go back and write the beginning, but part of me is torn still wanting to write some other scenes out of order. Maybe partially because I don't have as many ideas for the opening scene.... But very excited about this fic regardless!
