Boo! That’s easy for unicorns! You’re arrogant!
What kind of performer would put up with that?
Ever since the first season, Trixie Lulamoon has been presented as a villain (now reformed) who let her arrogance get the better of her. But if you really think about it, it was really all the Mane Six’s fault.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with performers exaggerating their abilities and accomplishments during a show, but the Mane Six started heckling her for her “attitude.”
People also overlook the fact that it wasn’t Trixie who brought that Ursa Minor into town, it was the poster children for the “Boyz R Dum” trope, Snips and Snails.
Poor Trixie. Outcast and ridiculed over something that wasn’t even her fault. And after all her hard work trying to be a performer.
The show never even acknowledged the fact that the Mane Six destroyed this pony’s dream.
It’s only natural she’d want to square that. But there was a problem. The Alicorn Amulet was cursed and it made her insane.
It’s true she kept trying to fight after she took it off, but who wouldn’t? Her blood was up and she was in the middle of a fight with the same bitches who crushed her dream.
None of that was because she was jealous. There was no hint that she even knew who the hell Twilight Sparkle was before the Manes ruined her show the first time.
Really, All Bottled Up was the very first time I ever really saw Trixie do something that could have been held against her. Even then you could chalk it up to insecurity.
She knew Starlight Glimmer was mad. The arrogance thing, once again, was an act. She was so afraid of a direct confrontation with her friend, even just by apologizing, that she went into showbiz mode just hoping she could get Starlight to laugh off her antics.
Feel bad about trying to split them up yet, Twilight? Did it ever once occur to you to try to find Trixie yourself and see if she was OK?
