Alicorn Twilight, Why by Deadend197 Alicorn Twilight, Why by Deadend197
God damn those wings, still not as good as I hoped they would look but at least they're satisfactory now. Not too happy about the colouring and background (I suck at making backgrounds) but I think I've spent enough time on this.

I don't hate Alicorn Twilight I just thought this was a good idea for a drawing :], My jimmies are only slightly rustled I just hope she doesn't stay an Alicorn for good It just takes away what makes an Alicorn special that there are very few of them, and I think it needs to stay that way.

Relax, there is nothing to worry, this will not happen, as a friend he read by Twitter of some of the people who work in the series (including Meghan McCarthy) have said very clearly that no immortality it will go into Twilight and she will never leave her friends.

I heard Lauren even said that also.

But the fact people still do stuff like this irks me.

Me too, I find it ridiculous that many people believe that all princesses and/or alicorns like Twilight or Cadence should have eternal life as Celestia or Luna.

I will answer for your own answer. Because they control the day and evening apart when Luna was Nightmare Moon, slow thousand years to be free and return to Equestria.

Twilight's not immortal. No offense, but why can't people see that?

Because many people think that all alicorns and / or princesses are immortal as Celestia or Luna, and they are like goddesses.

Being a alicorn and/or princess It has nothing to do with being immortal.

I also find it ridiculous to say that all alicorns must be royalty, can not be alicorns with ordinary lives?

Yeah... I agree.

Celestia and Luna, being the ones who control night and day are the only ones I see as immortal.

At least Twilight is still able to hang out with her friends :)

I think it's time we gave up. Everyone loves Alicorn Twilight now and every day more and more people hate us for not liking it, evnetually we'll all start loving it too and be absorbed back into the rest of the community or we'll be lynched in an effort to eliminate the deriders but one way or another the anti-twilicorn movement will be remembered as a bunch of idiots not wanting to accept a good thing.

Me I can't accept it still but not for the same reasons everyone else seems to. The main reason is that, after stepping back and giving the show and fandom an honest look I've come to the conclusion that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic isn't that good of a show, at least not as good as we built it up to be. It's a competently executed show with appealing animation and decent character designs and even a few good episodes but the more I think about it the more I realize that the show is just... average. It's only built up so much because it was of a higher quality that the previous version of My Little Pony, at least in terms of characterization, but even then the stories are about the same and even g3.5 had better animation, even if the character designs weren't that appealing.

I've only watched one episode of the new season, the one where Flim and Flam return, and now I see why I can't go back to watching the show. It's not the Twilicorn, because she's not in that episode, it’s because I realize all the problems I had with the show once I was able to watch it divorced from all the “Twilicorn controversy”.

 

Friendship is Magic came out at the perfect time to gain its popularity, there hadn’t been many good new kid’s cartoons in a while (in fact children’s entertainment was flagging at the time), and internet fandom was reaching its peak performance. Friendship is Magic being average (When compared to all other kids show out there) and watchable with decent animation and more story than we expected looked like a shiny piece of crystal in a sea of mud, but it’s still no gem. All due credit to Lauren Faust, you created a great show for little girls that is trying to show good morals and more grown up situations they will need to remember, and I’d much rather have my children watch Friendship is Magic than Hanna Montana or High School Musical, but even then I’d rather they watched older good cartoons like Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Freakazoid, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck or Gargoyles.

 

I won’t be ignoring fan works, I admit the fandom has turned out a lot of great pieces of work: art, music, videos, fanfiction and even story blogs. In fact, I’m going to keep viewing two story blogs, Twixie Answers and Pun Pony, long after the show finishes its run and I’ve gone on to other things because they carve out their own identity and don’t feel the need to adhere to anything the show forces viewers to accept. Another thing I’ve seen, however, is that no one in the community is willing to defend their right to create or parody or make real changes to stop Hasbro from Cease and Desisting their work because the more they just roll over and bark at Hasbro obediently the more this will happen. Someone needs to stand up and try to change things or eventually these anti-fanwork bills like SOPA and PIPA will be passed and we will have only ourselves to blame for not stopping them when we had the chance.

 

I just can’t delude myself anymore into thinking the show “hit a dive when the Twilicorn came into existence” it’s more that I realize the shows flaws became more apparent and I was blind to them before. Friendship is Magic is still a good kid’s show and the fandom has produced a number of things I will continue to experience but the cowardly nature of the fandom and what I’ve seen of the show has just made me realize that the show was only acceptably average at a time when new kid’s properties were become stale and vomit riddled. There are better new shows out there and even better older ones so maybe it’s time we gave up on trying to “defend Twilight Unicorn” and just moved on with our lives before the Bronies smite us so they don’t have to acknowledge the flaws in the show they so desperately love.

Two things.
1. This looks awesome.

2. She is not immortal, a writer even said she wouldn't outlive her friends. Cadence has obviously aged and I know Twilight will. I think the reason Celestia and Luna are immortal or simply ageless is because its a cartoon so they don't go too in detail. Look at the episode talking about how Equestria was made, they say it was founded before the sisters and yet their flag has Celestia and Luna so the show contradicts itself. I think that maybe natural alicorns like the sisters are immortal, or at least ageless but alicorns mike Cadence and Twilight are still normal ponies physically and will continue to age.

Also keep in mind everyone that is against her being alicorn...

While there is an older audience, the creators are making this to be a KIDS' SHOW. Little kids take stuff like this in like no body's business. They love it because it gives them excitement and a role model. 

Just remember that. xD

Making Sparkle an Alicorn creates infinite episode ideas. If she stayed a Unicorn, the series would have ended at season 3.

I don't think that being alicorn = immortality. I think Celestia and Luna could extend their life with some powerful magic of age or something like that... Like Glinda the Good Witch, for example. It's not connected with being alicorn.

Officially Twilight will be staying in Ponyville and with her friends: [link]

It is official that Twilight will not outlive her friends: Meghan McCarthy

Tara Strong also has this to say:
"Well the good news is, Twilight is going to stay Twilight. She is overwhelmed and surprised and grateful for this new phase in her life but it’s not going to change how she is or how she interacts with her friends, she’s staying in Ponyville. I’m certainly not changing any of my performance and it’s really the same Twilight except she can do more stuff now. She can fly…it’s not going to change the overall feel of the show, she’s going to be with the Mane 6. It’s just Twilight but a little bit better, she can do more stuff! But overall, it’s not really going to change that much. I think that’s what everybody’s afraid of, that it’s going to change sort of that core element that everyone fell in love with these six characters and that’s not going to change at all. I’m not changing a thing about my performance."

According to Meghan McCarthy's twitter, Twilight won't outlive her friends. This can be interpreted in a lot of different ways:
1. Twilight becoming an alicorn did not affect her lifespan in anyway.
2. The rest of the Mane 6 will also become Alicorns.
3. Twilight's going to die soon.
4. Twilight's going to lose her Alicorn status, and revert to being a unicorn. Or possibly get stuck as a pegasus or earth pony.
5. The "Twilight Is Dead" theory was correct all along.
6. In response to the backlash, Twilight has been erased from canon entirely.
