|My first commission from Drachea! <3|
After seeing the thread online about how an episode broke "cutie mark canon", I wanted to point out some things that I thought of.
Clyde's talent IS bad luck. His JOB will be Rodeo Clown. For all but two (maybe three) of the Mane 6, their cutie marks/talents are NOT their jobs but that they use their talent IN their job.
Talent: Flying fast
Job: Weather Pony
Uses fast flying to finish job quickly (or for helping with the tornado to bring water to Cloudsdale).
Talent: Throwing awesome parties
Uses her job as a central location for throwing her parties as well as to provide food for said parties
Talent: Finding hidden gems
Uses the gems she finds in her outfits
Fluttershy (this one is arguable)
Talent: Talking to and calming down animals
Job: Vet? Its not really sure what she does
Uses her talent to find out what is wrong with the animals to better help them.
Also, this isn't the first episode where a pony questions their talent. In the episode with Cheese Sandwich, Pinkie questions if she should even be a Party Pony because everyone seemed to be more interested in Cheese's party than her's.
Its one of the issues I have with "What My Cutie Mark is Telling Me" because AJ (with Rarity's cutie mark) shouldn't be sewing but out looking for gems, as that is what Rarity's Cutie Mark represents. Same with Rarity with RD's mark. She should be trying to go fast, not doing weather. If it was their jobs that switched and not their actual talents, THEN the entire scenario would make sense.
Same with people making "What if the Rainboom never happened?" stories that show Rarity not making clothing. Rarity would likely still be a seamstress/dressmaker, she just wouldn't use gems in the outfits and maybe not being as popular outside of Ponyville.
