>>36828295>where she flubbed spells constantly and wasn't THAT strong.
There was only a few instances where I can recall her messing up with a spell somehow during that time. SotC, WWU, and LZ. I think in those instances, it was more about using her magic to escalate things or just not solve things in that instance, rather than it being a recurring character trait that she messes up spells. Plus the very next episode after PP, Bats, has Twilight mess up and do a spell wrong which escalates the problem. If they don't want Twilight to solve things, they still just have her not be able to solve things, like fixing Rarity's hair or getting honey from those bees simply just can't be fixed with magic.
Might actually be because more recently Starlight is around now and is often impulsive that they can just use her to cause magical mishaps that create problems or make things worse instead of Twilight accidentally messing up something.
