I know, right?

I know a lot of bronies would bitch if they somehow were able to segue Megan and her siblings coming into the storyline, but fuck that. I hate it when bronies get butthurt with that bullshit. Plus, I like the idea of her being the founder of the Crystal Empire, and they didn't specifically say HOW Tirek was defeated in G4.

Yeah, Well it's hard to tell where the series will go now that equestria has been given rainbow powers. Anything could happen really. It's funny though that a lot of us never saw it coming.
Here's to season 5!

That is an awkward way to hold a longsword. Especially one that's on fire.

True. But there's a pretty staggering misconception about the weight of swords, and longswords aren't really that heavy or difficult to wield.

About three pounds, give or take, and actually quite an agile weapon. Nothing to do with weight, it's about range of motion.

With a normal grip you can cut from any point of the compass, and your hand will be protected by the crossguard the whole strike. You can stab from above, below, and either side. You can block incoming strikes on the crossguard from any direction, push them away from you to either side, and angle around from any side.

With a reverse grip, you can only cut or slice from the right (maybe a little from the lower left), you expose your hand at the beginning of the cut, and your elbow is exposed at the end. It's difficult to get power and reach from the motion, and the more you do, the worse your exposure is. Options from the left are even more sharply limited - mostly stabbing, although this motion at least stays behind the guard. Most blocks will be at angles where you have less leverage, with no way to angle around for a counter.

Plus, you know, it's on fire. I'm expecting her clothes to catch fire in three, two, one...

Magical flame, wizard, probably holding the sword like that after stabbing Tirek dagger-style.

Above all, style.

+10 for knowing longswords, though.
