Eyes go shut
Into thin air leaving no trace
Why don't you just save your breath?
All of your words feel like a jail
That blocks the sun and makes me stale
Not enough gold in all the world
So why have I surrendered
To your abusive ways
The cracks have opened up to the core
Is there anywhere to go from here now?
Sick with the lies consuming our souls...
Give me one reason to take the breath we breathe for granted
Hold it in so long that you forget to say
Give me one reason to remain confined within the fences
Here with you and my soul on display...
Life is too precious to waste...

...well, how much do you wanna bet that this will show up tomorrow? Since, you know, Starlight Glimmer will seemingly mess with time and prevent Rainbow Dash's Rainboom from ever happening in the first place, thus equalizing everypony in the end?
I'd say it's an obvious given, really.
Now, this may be good or bad, depending on what happens. I say good because as I stated in a previous journal of mine, Cutie Mark Magic might be reminiscent of the Care Bears, of which I loved back then in the early '90s, and their own magic. I say bad because they might end up like Rainbow Power and merely serve as conduits for the one-hit Deus Ex Machina device, the Harmony Blaster. Which would REALLY be tiring at this point since this would be like the sixth time (they used it on NMM, Discord, Tirek, the Dazzlings, and on NMM again in a dream) that they've used it. All of which have no struggle to them except when they fought against the Dazzlings (and even then, they only needed Sunset Shimmer to make it more powerful).
At least they changed it up to something more of my preference (and meeting my goals, sort of?) in the Friendship Games, where they had a real Super form battle between Daydream Shimmer and Midnight Sparkle. And as I've said, though their colors still didn't change apart from the latter's darker skin, their designs were still worthy enough to be called Super forms, IMO, and they didn't serve as conduits for an instant one-hit win button either. Unlike Rainbow Power. >_>;
But yeah, I'm betting my money on the Blaster again... But, you never know. This is supposed to be more epic than the season 4 finale, they claimed last year. And thus, they could pull a surprise or two. You never know.
Let's find out tomorrow, shall we?
