Probably have her start to get lonely and come back to Dash (possibly after having driven off other friends likewise), but one of the ponies gives a mouthful about her attitude, and challenges her to even just try and not bully anyone for a week. Then she huffs off, but decides to accept the challenge (competitive streak), and then go from there.Here's a question. How would you 'redeem' Gilda, for lack of a better word?
I wonder how long it'll be before we get to thread 7, Pinkie's Party ^^Also, thanks for starting the new thread, Q99.
If you pose the question to the fandom at large, the answer would involve a lot of bowing and scraping before Fluttershy.Here's a question. How would you 'redeem' Gilda, for lack of a better word?
The only one I can adequately speculate on is that the Everfree Forest is the result of Nightmare Moon and the battle there. But again, speculation.Here's another question: why is the Palace of the Royal Pony Sisters in the EverFree Forest?
This has been troubling me for awhile. What was Equestria like ten centuries ago? What is Equestria, really? What lies beyond it's borders? What are it's borders?
It's appropriate that I ask this in Applejack's thread. I've been thinking alot about the Earth Ponies, lately. I feel that there's a story there that hasn't been told that strikes right to the heart of all of these questions.
Here's one: When both sisters were around, the Equestria "safe zone" was even bigger than it is now, and it shrunk as a result of only being maintained by one princess.The only one I can adequately speculate on is that the Everfree Forest is the result of Nightmare Moon and the battle there. But again, speculation.
There are a few fairly standard ways to redeem a bully type character. The first is to make them have a change of heart and start being nice and apologizing, but I think of that as clumsy writing . The other would be to take a deeper look at them and reveal the emotions or background that make them feel a need to lash out, which I think is a better way to deal with it. Maybe take the time to show that Gilda was persecuted for being a Griffon in a pony flight school and felt she needed to "prove" herself, or possibly the opposite and she was completely ostracized by Griffons for it (and was kind of jealous of Rainbow Dash's other friends because Dash was the only friend she had left; also, she stole the apple because she had no money!).Here's a question. How would you 'redeem' Gilda, for lack of a better word?
