Meet the Sparkles by PluckyNinja Meet the Sparkles by PluckyNinja
I figured I'd drop in a little bit of satirical commentary on "Equestria Girls" while it's relevant (that is, before more information comes out and potentially renders the joke here pointless). For those not in the know, "Brad" is the fanon name of the presently unnamed male human character in Equestria Girls who many presume to be the show's token love interest for Twilight Sparkle. He supposedly has the same voice actor as Shining Armor, and the design on his shirt is a shield similar to Shining Armor's cutiemark.

I'd like to think that the writers did this because they are channeling some Sigmund Freud, and some blatant freudian overtones played for comedy would instantly make EQG a lot more bearable. =P

:iconfrank1605: Has a Spanish translation on their page:

AND YES I KNOW HE'S REALLY A ROYAL GUARD NAMED FLASH SENTRY AND HE'S A PEGASUS. Just thought I'd get that out there before the inevitable avalanche of "corrective" comments floods in. Fortunately I haven't really gotten any yet, so we're off to a good start. ;)

the Brad thing, I just really refer to them as Flash 1(pony) and Flah 2(human) although I don't know which to ship Twi with because as a pony she blushed but she went to what was kind of like the prom in the human world.

Comic was made, I believe, before we saw anything of Flash Sentry as a pony. We only saw previews of his human form, never his pony one

There are ways around that. The point is to have a salty, savory stick of something in a fried cornbread coating - and there are probably vegetable-based salty, savory sticks of something which can be made if you're trying hard enough. Although we don't see a lot of savory creations on the show - there seems to be more of a focus on sweets for some reason.

Nah, just a chick who thinks it's fun to overthink things. ^_^
Although honestly, if you think a world of vegetarians wouldn't find a way to dig as much flavor out of their veg as we do out of meat, I think you've got another thing coming. ;) And on top of that, Twilight and her family are kinda high-class, since she grew up as the ruler's protege and her brother is now prince-consort...

Twi's beloved is so much like Shiny it hints that Twi is a little too fond of her BBBFF. That's something a lot of people thought on seeing Flash's design - a blue-haired royal guard with a shield cutie mark. As the description says, it was thought at the time that he'd even have Shining Armor's VA.
