Based on the commercials I've seen for the upcoming premier of My Little Pony Season 5, I've put together a premise.

The mane six arrive in the town full of ponies with creepy forced smiles and who all have the same cutie marks. The head of the town, and only one capable of making facial expressions, is Starlight Glimmer. She explains to the six that this is all a social experiment to prove her theory that having the same cutie mark actually leads to a happier life. The six argue until she introduces one of the towns earliest members.

He is a pony who used to have a cutie mark in dentistry. He was the best in his home town, so good that he could fill a cavity with his eyes closed. Which is good because he hated looking in pony's mouths. His cutie mark, his special talent, was a skill no pony could rival, but he hated his job. Until one day, Starlight dropped a pamphlet in his mail box explaining what her town had to offer. So he gave it a look and found that other ponies all had stories similar to his, where they weren't satisfied by the destiny set out by the tattoo on their butts. So he, like so many before, submitted to a spell which changed his cutie mark to an equals sign, just like all the others, and he's been happy ever since.

Turns out, the spell Starlight has used is a forbidden magic sealed away long ago. It's basically brainwashing, stripping ponies of not just their cutie marks, but that which makes them different from each other, reducing them to little more than drones free from the burden of free thought. It's basically a cult spell with Starlight as the cult leader, forcing her ideas onto unsuspecting ponies. She knows they're being indoctrinated, but thinks the happiness they feel justifies such unethical means.

But the mane six don't know this yet. They think she's just trying to peacefully share her way of thinking, and so submit to the spell as a way of winning the argument through example. And without them even realizing it, they're slowly losing themselves to the spell. Eventually they recover enough sense to fight back, and just in time to stop Starlight from using this spell on another nearby town as her next step in conquering all Equestria.


We're probably not going to get this plot line as it's kinda more mature than what I think Hasbro will allow, but I'm still hopeful. Additionally, I'm really looking forward to the episode where they devote time to the background ponies. Hopefully they'll call them all by name. Perhaps they'll even bring back Derpy proper. I'd also like for Gilda to come back and make amends with Dash. The fans, and shippers, will just eat it up.

I don't do too much political pieces from my channel. Most of what you'll get here is my fiction.
