I think I have finally figured out why I hold Chrysalis in such a high regard
It's taken a long time of thinking about and I have found it at last. I think I have grown to enjoy her so much because of how she is presented in her debut episode. I felt something with her that other villain and characters didn't have. I felt a true sense of individuality from Chrysalis. Aside from the obvious villain troops, she felt real for me. Her personality dripping with actual passion, a desire to do as she wishes, and a mind bound by none. While what happened to Chrysalis after her defeat is up for conjecture. I do think she suffered that loss hard. And seeing her in a fallen state would of solidified it more for me. But I understand the show had to keep kid friendly. But that's why fan works for her can sometimes be so haunting to the reality of her existence afterward. And I really do love it. I am happy others have found a passion for Chrysalis. But IDK if they see here in the same light, I do.
Nightmare Moon was alright as a villain, but was only a one shot villain at best to add emphasis to how dangerous she is. And because sister jealousy and what not.
Discord is a villain that causes chaos without purpose. It's just causing chaos 'for the lols'.
Chrysalis, however, felt like she had true motive in everything she did. Even if she did drag her hive to do her bidding in the process. It felt like a being I'd be happy to get to know better. I honestly could actually see things from her side in some way.
Also I find her physical form quite interesting and beautiful. Almost as if she is part of nature itself. Which is why I always kinda felt like maybe plant life wrapped around the horn would look lovely.
This is my thoughts on it. And it's been after a long time of mulling over why exactly that I really have a attraction to her as a character. And I think this is going to be my final answer, since I am now content with it. I really am not going to ask that anyone see it the same way. I just felt like expressing myself one last time on the matter.
