She sure seems to get a lot of pictures for something that doesn't exist sweetielad matey bloody bollocks lmao>>31498256
I just gave the bully example as what it is, an example, Anon
And I'm not sure about your point, are you saying that kids can end up deciding to stay alone (even though it isn't glimmy's case, at all, she wasn't/isn't some kind of lone wolf or hermit or whatever) without suffering anything 'dramatic'?
She held a grudge against cutie marks and them making ponies different from each other and thus, 'forcing them apart'
And sure, it's a real thing too, even if we don't have cutie mark, but I'm certain everyone hate 'it', the fact that you grow up and lose touch with your best friends (or even with your love interests) but there's a difference between just hating it and living with it, and taking control of a town and using force to keep everyone in line and emulate the perfect little china
I'm not sure how could anyone bring themselves to that point without suffering 'anything dramatic'
But sure, expanding on her past was/is still a must, but the thing is that if they did, then it'd make the reasons for why she did all these things even worse, because it makes so little sense
She'd NEED dramatic shit to have happened or it'll feel cheap and all of S7's effort to place her in everyone's heart would be wasted
I just don't know how they could fix it now, it's kind of like building a castle on a beach, wouldn't surprise me if we end up not getting anything from her past ever again because of that
