Old AliTwi Idea Dulset Tarn !KelpieFM3QCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828981

Hey everyone, been a long time, huh? I was digging around my old stuff and found a concept I remember putting a lot of effort into. Not sure how many people here still watch the show, but this was back during the season 3 hiatus when I wanted to show all the doomsayers that it was possible (if highly unlikely) that the show could do well after the whole Princess Twilight fiasco. It's just a sort of... hypothetical look into where I think things could have gone. It's a little long, but not a fic or anything. I'm kinda just looking for feedback, whatever it might be.

<Welp, the body was too long for a post, so here's a link to a google doc instead.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iqrJ_hddNAHFkr0LLFL8EYbQAT58SsvqmMPCfp9HqGo/edit?usp=sharing

So... if you made it through all that, please let me know what you thought, if you think it's plausible, or if you disagree with my interpretations. Any kind of feedback is welcome!

It's not bad but in my eyes doesn't quite match up a few things and makes an assumption or two I don't agree with.

Firstly I don't like Twilight's sudden depression right after the coronation at the end of S3 where she seems only to happen.

Also Celestia being put off by Twilight's request to reconsider the coronation doesn't sound like her at all (besides, how can you reconsider that which had already happened)? She would much rather have comforted her.

And I fully disagree with this: "Celestia made her a princess and it was quite wholly Celestia."

The fact that she grew wings was what made her a princess and that wasn't Celestia's doing - she just saw the potential of Twilight and subtly guided her in that direction.

IMO Celestia just stated what was common knowledge, that all alicorns have reached a level of power, dignity and character and that would make them leaders of their people, i.e. princesses.

I would even go so far as to say that because they have become alicorns they fully understand and readily accept these roles. If a pony were to shy away from such big responsibility she would not be able to become an alicorn in the first place.

I appreciate the feedback but I'm really not sure what isn't lining up for you. I never mentioned any depression, only a slow realization of what happened. Celestia does attempt to comfort Twilight, but nothing she can say could actually help.

Twilight growing wings didn't make her a princess. Celestia showing up and telling Twilight she's a princess, is what made her a princess. Just imagine if she hadn't done that. Even if your interpretation of the subject were true, she'd never have been coronated except for Celestia's direct choice. And even if somehow there were more to it than Celestia's individual decision, what's important is Twilight's own perception that the only reason she became a princess was that Celestia told her she was. Right?

>I never mentioned any depression
She sounded depressed to me.

>Twilight growing wings didn't make her a princess

I disagree. Celestia only confirmed the obvious. Rarity was the first to quip that she looked like one because alicorn = princess.

>Just imagine if she hadn't done that.

Then Twilight would have approached her and had asked for an explanation.

> she'd never have been coronated except for Celestia's direct choice

I don't recall Celestia making a choice in that regard; the scene cut straight to the coronation, god knows what could have happened between frames.

>Twilight's own perception that the only reason she became a princess was that Celestia told her she was.

I also don't recall Twilight giving that impression.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but that is 100% your interpretation, not the facts of the episode.

It is, but I say exactly the same about your interpretation because they do not match the facts of the episode.

I will read the kelpie's dissertation soon but I'm ready to respond to one point here:

following her coronation, I dunno bout depressed but Twily WAS listless, as seen in her dissatisfaction in not knowing her place

You'll Play Your Part [ With Lyrics ] - My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic Song

if not for the Tirek attack, who knows whether she would have settled in comfortably as Princess of Fighting and Ballerinamusicboxes.

She did not doubt her role as a princess per se though, she lacked a field to operate in as a princess.

It makes perfect sense. Imagine Twilight being assigned into a managing position - which she likes. But she has nothing and no one to manage.
