Incandescence's Opinions

Just a second.. Let me get up on my platform here, adjust my mic... There we go. Ahem.

Today's Episode: The Grand Galloping Gala, Celestia's Rule, and Life in General.

You know. I really don't understand the purpose of this whole party. Just a bunch of snooty ponies getting together to while their time away in the palace, and for what? They don't get to know eachother, it's like they show up just so that they can bask in the oooh wonderous presence of Celestia. I mean really. Year after year of this, it's gotta be boring. How long has it been going on like this, is she delivering herself a cosmic punishment for imprisoning her sister in the moon? I can't think of any other reason to torture yourself like this year after year after year. I heard the last one came crashing down around those prissy ponies, hah, I might've liked to see that, but I never get invited.

I never get invited, and I wouldn't wanna go anyway. It's just be me getting all hyped up over being accepted into some high society horseapples. feeling like I'm finally getting some recognition, and I'd show up, and spend the entire night carting trays around. Honestly, I don't know who decided it would be a good idea to hatch dragons here in canterlot. I mean really, creatures filled with fire running about in a school filled with countless ancient scrolls and books, prancing about in cities made of wood and thatch down below with ponies on sabatical. Someone didn't think this through! One wrong move and the place goes up in flames. Ponies fleeing, destruction everywhere. Not to mention using us as little helper monkeys, I mean come on! You think we might not be a little beligerent? What happens when we grow up and are too big to be useful? Come to think of it, I haven't actually seen any adult dragons anywhere around populated Equestria. Is this a new thing? Like, just a few decades or so? I don't think so, something sinister is going on here.

On the topic of fires, why don't we seem to have some sort of emergency response team? I see millers, and bakers, and even rainbow makers! What I don't see are law enforcement, no rapid medical response teams, no fire response teams. We don't even have a centralized health system! What if some disease suddenly comes out of Everfree? What if there's a thirty carriage pileup? Sometimes I wonder if rising the Sun and the Moon both took a toll on our great leader's ability to plan ahead. On that subject, where the heck as her sister been? No-one has seen her since the incident! I'm telling Equestria, something funny's going on here, and it's not Pinkie's comedy routine.

But, you know, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter. We live our lives day by day, doing the things we need to do only to grow old and fade away, eventually be forgotten. The fact of the matter is, ladies and gentlemen, while we may have an impact on the lives of those around us, the world is just too darned big for anything we little groundlings to do anything that really matters. But, hey! It's a sweet, irritating ride while it lasts!
