Flying Twilight by Vector-Brony Flying Twilight by Vector-Brony
Well I've watched the season four, episodes 1/2 and to be honest all I felt afterwards was This was good?. I went crazy seeing Luna becoming Nightmare Moon, Discord being defeated and The tree of harmony. Theses were awesome. But I still have plenty of questions. What was up with the potion needing dark magic to turn it white. And also I feel that the Nighmare Moon ark was a little rushed.  It was a matter of minutes for Celestia to decide to banish her sister to the moon for a thousand years. Are you kidding me. You would have to be stone cold to do something like that. It was a "oh your evil noW. TO THE MOON!". This could had been a two part story in it's own right.

 This was made using traces from MLP FIM

While you have some valid points about certain plot arcs being rushed, I don't think you have the "right" points. The backstories were rushed because we mostly already know what happened. All the show creators did was illustrate it for us. What was rushed was their conflict in the Everfree Forest – that could've been drawn out a little longer to fully illustrate the points. While the matter of the potion was strange, it seems vague enough that it could be addressed later in the season.

In fact, their creation of an actual plot arc (unfilled gaps, spots of history, recurring characters, and of course the mystery of the box) is what made the two episodes so exciting. In the past, episodes have been very sporadic and largely unconnected. Now a "road" has been created for the characters to travel on.

Also, this episode had amazing animation and certain interesting subtleties (for example, the sun and moon both being raised made sure that the entire episode took place at Twilight).

There are plenty of improvements that could've been made (Zecora's appearance was sudden, and there was a disturbing lack of Scootaloo, among other things), but that's always going to happen. The show is still relatively new, and the season premiere showed an enormous amount of improvement that will hopefully last for the rest of the season. :)

Arguing about the episodes' qualities aside, I love your drawing! Twilight's pose and expression are adorable and drawn well. :D Great picture; it's awesome!

Are you serious?  Celestia was CRYING.  Did you think those were tears of joy?

That's our girl!
Are you kidding me, These were by far the best episodes I've ever seen! From actually seeing the first rosing of Nightmare Moon and her banishment actually being animated to finally seeing where Celestia and Luna got the Elements of Harmany! Trust me when I say this two parter exceeding my expectations was incredible, because I actually had pretty high expectations before seeing it. And they actually did make me feel for Celestia, that has never been done before. And seeing them have to give up the elements of harmony, I never expected that. And also ends on a set up for an adventure to find the keys. Season 4 really has alot of potential if it managed to start off as good as it did. First episode and already season 4 has given me a new #1 favorite episode of MLPFIM!
