Flash Sentry made an appearance....

Sat Jan 25, 2014, 8:26 PM
    Well...to those of you who saw the newest MLP episode "Three's a crowd", then I guess you noticed that Flash Sentry made a brief 10 second appearance. I saw it and was bot surprised and shocked:


    I think we all recall Megan McCarthy saying that Flash will not be a character in Season 4. Either she lied...or the more logical explanation is...Hasbro forced her to make him appear (Thank you once again Hasbro for continuing to destroy MLP like you do with everything else you make).

But back to the subject...while Flash did appear, even if only briefly, this DOES NOT prove he is coming back. For all we know, he just appeared to make everyone say "OMG IT"S FLASH!!" :shrug: . I mean many background characters have appeared over and over...like Fancy Pants, yet he never makes anymore major appearances. 

So...in truth, Flash has made a cameo appearance, but that DOES NOT mean he will return and become Twilight's official romance; That has yet to happen, so until it does, she is still single and he is not "back"



The MAIN reason I say all this is because of my own pairing of Twilight with my original character COURAGEOUS HEART. 

 I am NOT going to stop my writing just because of what happened in today's episode. My work will continue on for as long as possible...at least until I reach the end that I am planning, whether that happens when Twilight gets an official romance or not (Hoping NOT).

Over the past year since I started, my stories along with my own characters have become a big hit here on DA and elsewhere.


1. I have many friends and watchers here that love my stories and wish for more. They also love how Courageous was introduced and how he slowly became who he is, as well as got together with Twilight (Not to mention it all happened BEFORE Flash was ever named or made) :D

2. I have heard from a friend that he saw a discussion on Tumblir once with the subject on Courageous Heart. Everyone there was saying how much better he is compared to Flash. All that gave me a major boost. :squee:

3. My popularity has grown high in only a year. For most writers on DA, that is rare and hard to get. This proves my work is good; Good enough for Hasbro to notice...if they ever did :shrug:

4. While he may look like an alicorn, Courageous Heart is NOT a true one (If he cant use magic, then he is a false alicorn). His features and backstory are what make this pony that good. Some don't see that and are too dumb to even bother reading. :nod:



So, in short, no matter what happens (Even if Flash appears again and talks...or more.) I am NOT going to stop writing, nor stop with Twilight paired with Courageous. 

Or as they are now called: "TWIRAGEOUS" (you have to admit it is better than "Flashlight" :puke: . The Pairing name, not the whole pairing itself.)

Also, let us not forget that around half of the Brony Fandom like Flash, so we will have to see if Hasbro will go all the way or not. 

That is all I wanted to say. So yeah :nod:


TWIRAGEOUS FOREVER!!!!

I'm glad to hear that you're taking everything the right way. And though I still think that Flash is best pony and the best love interest for Twilight, I still like your story with Courageous. In short, you're one of the good ones.

Don't mention it, pal! Though I did take into account of what you said in one part of this. A character's features and backstory are what make a character great. That is why I'm hoping that for what I have planned for Flash will be as well received as your story with Courageous.

Yes. That is why I gave Courageous a chance. It's also one reason why I love King Sombra, Flash Sentry, and several other characters that hardly get any work done on them. Because I love to come up with my own stories for them. The potential that all characters have are endless. Heck, I bet I could come up with something for Snips and Snails if I wanted to. Or even Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon!......But I don't... I don't want to... at least not now.

I hope they do. And even if they do, I'll still love my story that I'm doing of him myself. Which reminds me, I've gotta get back to work. Wish me luck!

Hi Courageous!
I've been following your work for awhile now and I was surprised to see you visit the Flash Sentry Fan Club.  I'm glad to hear you're not a Flashbasher, personally I'm open to all pairings and it annoys me when anyone thinks their choice of pairing should be the one and only for that character.  Surely there's enough room in the MLP fandom for all our stories and artwork.
When I first founded the group I requested your commissions of Flash vs Courageous from keekoi but they're about to expire with no action taken.  That's a shame, they're really good Flash Sentry pieces and I'd love to have them in the collection.
It's good to know you'll keep your stories going, we're all Twilight Sparkle fans after all.

Yeah, I dont hate Flash...I just think he wasnt introduced properly and his personality and style is too common. Well...and also his pairing with Twilight is a bit of a rivalry for my own. Mine came way before he ever was developed, back when any pairing of Twilight was accepted whether it be cannon, background, or oc. But ever since Flash came in, most of the time when people comment on art that I commission, they are always saying that Twilight is with Flash now.

Honestly, they are not together and have never been together...so far. But that is a good thing, since it allows those of use with our own to continue. Not sure if Flash will become her romance in the future, but for now i am happy he is not.


But that is for the future to decide. For now, I am happy writing my stories with my own character who has come far in only a year :D



As for the artwork you tried to submit, dont worry about it because Keekoi has been inactive for a while anyway. Her art was good and most had mixed reactions to the battle, where some took sides. In the end it was even :D


And yeah, I plan to keep going for as long as possible. Many of us love Twilight and most of us try to make good stories of her and others. Thanks for talking with me and I hope you find more pictures that you wish to add to your collection :D

Yeah...the only thing that bugs me about it is when certain characters get a romance, or fans think they are in a romance, and they come over to my stories or artwork...or other peoples'...and start making rude or annoying comments. Whether or not Flash and Twilight get together, I am not going to stop my stories or let others get to me :D

Also, I dont hate "Flashlight" , I just dont think it was introduced right. If it was, I would admire it. But who knows if they plan to make it official or not :shrug:

First of all, I think Hasbro has better things to do than force a background character into a scene. That's just ridiculous you'd blame it on them.
Second, you sure seem a tad jealous 8/
Third, where does it officially say he isn't coming back? Apparently he's canon now.
Fourth, that's really rude to go on about how much better you think your oc is compared to another character.
Fifth, Twilight Sparkle isn't your character and it's not for you to decide what she does. If the writers want to give her a love interest, then they have every right to do so.

Counter:

1. Hasbro has made many bad moves before...like give Michael Bay the right to direct Transformers. WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT!!! Also, they are the reason Lauren Faust left the show because they wanted to do things their way...so yes, Hasbro IS to blame for the many mistakes that Megan has to fix now.

2. I am not jealous of Flash; I just dont think he was made well enough nor introduced right. Others feel the same way. Plus I was just saying this to let others know that I wasnt going to let this little short appearance stop me from writing my stories. Maybe if he was made well and such, I'd actually admire him.

3. Megan said he was not coming back in Season 4 on her Twitter page. What we saw, so far, was nothing more than a surprise appearance and until he shows up again and talks, along with the possibility of him being Twilight's official romance, he IS NOT canon.

4. Maybe you should read my stories BEFORE you judge. Courageous came way before Flash and hundreds if not over a thousand have loved how he was introduced and slowly made his way to become Twilight's romance. My stories were seen by many as good stories, and some outside DA said he was better. I dont see Courageous as the best in all the world, but he is one of the best that would make a better character and romance for Twilight. There are other ocs out there that are as good as mine that many would love to see become real, and if they do before mine, then they deserve it 

5. If they do give her a romance, it will just lead to more love/hate of the series. Like her becoming an alicorn too quickly, a male alicorn showing up, flash making an appearance. Hasbro is making too many decisions without thinking on how the community will feel. 


So in conclusion, I just said all this because I was shocked to see Flash appear when they said he would not. It was only a surprise appearance for us who have seen him before, so until he appears again with a more active role, he is NOT official and Twilight is still single. Besides, they whole thing was nothing more than a crush. She may find another romance in the future for all we know.

And I make these stories for fun and was just letting those know that despite his minor appearance, i am not going to stop writing. That was all.

As long as I'm Megan's guardian and lawyer

Yes HAsbro make mlp corrupted utterly and secondly i am so upset technically furious as fire of Lauren Faust she suppose to appeal to hasbro she's the rescuer it was said that she must protect her creation not forsaken it and make our emotions balanced not leave it  in eternal hatred and darkness

as i talked to megan secretly she said that flash will only make a cameo only that's all what i know from her and he will not act on it as long as he remains in the crystal empire if marriage confirmed which i am concerned of MLP FIM dies even half of the fandom dies too if megan is involved it will happen same as faust....

be honest i would never continue shipping my OC unless i have her permission or confirm right now i am making a pegasus OC just only in case of fandom Apocalypse ...

Flash's appreance so far means as much as appearance of any other background character - does he live in same universe as rest of ponies? yes he does. Does his presence has any input beside being sort of easter egg? Nope. No worries so far.

I'm sorry if I seem mean or if this upsets you but it seems like you're making ado about nothing.

Going as far as to blame Megan or Hasbro for "ruining" the show is really daft, at the end of the day it belongs to them so they can do whatever they please with the show, like with any children's show, it's goal is to sell toys not appease the fandom (sure nods to the fandom are present but that's because bronies have cash and will happily buy their pony toys giving Hasbro more cash). Yes season 4 has had *too many* fandom nods but that's all this season seems to be about (that and finding keys) so his presence is probably just a nod to equestria girls.

It doesn't really matter if Flash shows up again, you have your own little universe where Twilight ends up with your oc so the canon appearance of Flash as a background non speaking character really shouldn't matter to you that much. So his presence reappearing in the show hasn't "ruined" anything for you. At the end of the day deal with it, speaking as a Naruto Oc owner of 7 years (5 story re-writes, character revamps- worth it) I'm sure your oc and all the time you've spent on him and his story matter to you more than a 10 second non speaking cameo.

But anyway this is my 20pence on the matter.

Well, Im not doing this because i am offended, I am just letting others know what I am feeling...which is the possibility of Flash returning will not make me stop writing.

As for blaming, well i have heard from those that have close ties to Hasbro that they are going all out and doing stuff that Megan does not wish to do. Not sure who is responsible for Flash coming back, but it just proves that some of the producers are going too far without thinking about the reactions.

And Courageous has been around longer than flash, plus my stories merge well into the series...even today. Although there may have to be some minor changes to mine to make it seem like it, but yeah

It seems a little silly to get so worked up over a minor, non-speaking 10 second cameo.
 
I wouldn't put so much blame on Megan McCarthy or Hasbro, She could have been lying because too many Bronies were demanding spoilers or she could have been telling the truth initially but after seeing so much fan art of Flash they decided to do more with his character, which is why Equestria girls came about in the first place I believe (give me some time, I'll find the video where it was mentioned eventually >.<).

From what I can tell from your stories, this cameo doesn't really affect it at all and you could do what many other deviants do and to hell with the canon. If you don't support or like what is canon then you don't have to include it in your work, there is nothing forcing you to include it if anything more is developed, hell I know won't.

I personally don't like Flashes character, he has very little piss-poor development and Equestria girls could have functioned fine without him, and so I don't think this cameo means anything; because if you notice Twilight didn't react to his presence only Cadence, so I think this cameo was slipped in solely for the Bronies, which is what this season appears to be about.


Seriously, don't let the cameo bother you just continue with your story and your characters. You enjoy writing your story and you have fans that enjoy your story, surely that's more important than some slipped in fan service?


I'll apologise in advance incase I seemed mean or if I've said anything to upset you

I doubt that any romance will happen, they haven't really set it up so if it suddenly appear it'll be very jarring. If there will be any future indication of a romance sub-plot thing then we'll probably get the toys out before the episodes, after all toy sales trump all with Hasbro -_-

That's cool, I've seen people blow up over less on this website so its hard to tell if you might upset somebody so I thought it better to apologise in advance

Its alright. I know mine is romancing Twilight, but at least the story that worked its way up to it was viewed by many to be considered better.

I know most dont trust mlp fanfics nowadays, but if you ever feel like it, take a look at my stories in my gallery. Starting with "MLP The Light of Equestria". That is where it all started.

Thank you again for your reply and yeah, I am not gonna blow up or anything. I was just a little concerned

I was honestly surprised that he appeared but seriously Hasbro, do you really have to tie in Equestria Girls with the show when it's "just a spin-off" and NON CANON to the actual show?

Even though it was pretty interesting, I say that was  a buzz kill and ask: What was the point of having Flash in the show? Okay you know what, I won't deny that there are some stories that concern a TwiFlash pairing but in truth, when you look back on that episode, it doesn't feel right in any way, shape or form and Twilight still has a lot to learn about friendship even though she's an alicorn and after that, love  if there's ever a chance for her to have a love interest.

I think he's yet to gain a following if he's properly introduced with characters of his own that makes him unique and a detailed back story for him but right now, I rather not see him since he served no purpose in Three's a Crowd. I'll still follow it but in two ways: The TV show - On Occasion and also - in a fanfic but with a Twist like AlexLoneWolf's A New Hero from FanFiction which I am really hooked into.

Personally I don't mind Flashlight, I think he would be a good match for Twilight in the show. Now if they had introduced him properly then the Brony community might be more okay with him. Don't get me wrong I really enjoy your character Courageous and I wish that he was a character in the show because he and Twilight are awesome together and by no means stop making your stories and it would be an absolute shame if they were no longer written.

"I am NOT going to stop my writing just because of what happened in today's episode."
I wouldn't expect you to, canon or not. I know as a writer I tend to be nitpicky about what is or is not canon, but I'm fond of "the author never said it didn't happen" violations ;p, and I'll violate canon more blatantly than that if it works for my plot.
And I generally have no trouble with non-canon fanfics when I'm reading them.
Case in point: I'd written out my Sonic fics years before I got my hands on the official encyclopedia and found out the names of assorted wives. I already had a major OC as one of the wives throughout one story, and once I got the official info... I rewrote one single chapter and created another oneshot to allow both versions to be possible... and I only did that much because I wanted to.

And in my Pony fics... well, I'm certainly not going to eliminate OCs like my Swift Shade if Hasbro decides to give us some version of Luna's history that makes him impossible.

That being said, I haven't seen the episode with the Flash cameo, but as a fan of the show, I have yet to see a problem allowing an official relationship with him or any canon character while writing the fanfic relationship with your OC.
