I just saw the Season 3 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And I have to say that I didn't like it, at best.One, I just wished that Twilight was turned into a Princess at the series finale( Not now, there's going to be a Season 4 and rumors of a season 5), it would have been more suitable. Two, now that Twilight is a Princess, what does everyone think things would turn out if she stays in Ponyville; especially now that she will have to perform royal duties much more often? Three, there's one less unicorn in the Mane Six, there's an unbalance amongst the pony races with Rarity as the only unicorn now. Four, even Lauren Faust disagreed with Twilight Sparkle becoming a Princess Alicorn like having Cadence into one instead of a regular unicorn on Tumblr/Twitter. So don't give me any crap of how it was destined to be of Twilight being in-between of Celestia and Luna as day and night and her Element of Harmony being a crown instead of the standard necklace. Five, you expect me to be happy that coronation episode was only made to sell an expensive toy?! Call me shallow, stuck-up, and even unreasonable, but I'm not liking how this is turning out to be. And I have every right to complain!

I wasn't too thrilled with her becoming an alicorn either, it seems her whole personality changed. Now she's hardly funny, has fun, or is kind of in a way, snobbish (a little like Celestia, with her head held high). I love twilight and all, but I don't love her new wings, or her even being a princess.

Just to correct you, Cadence was actually meant to be a Pegasus, not a Unicorn or Alicorn

I was annoyed the first time I watched the coronation episode, since I didn't think Twilight's persona fit the bill for becoming an alicorn, let alone a princess. I don't know anything about there needing a tie-in for a 'Princess Sparkle" toy to be sold during the holidays but it seems to me there could have been other ways to entice folks to cough up money on plushies or toys. Seems to me it would have been more interesting to have Twilight become the court magician or some kind of teacher... would have been fun to see the kind of troubles that could crop up with a classroom full of students just learning how to use their powers. :)

I know that any series that stays on the air for more than a couple of years has a tendency to veer off into new plotlines but it doesn't mean I like it when it happens. I'm just going to go on hoping that it will all end up being a dream... just some kind of excuse that will allow Twilight to go back to being an awesome scholar and magical gal.  :D

In case you haven't noticed, this journal is for people who dislike/hate the fact that Twilight Sparkle is now a Princess when all we ever seen her do so far is give out stupid commands, flight that inconsistently goes from horrible to fantastic and back, and worst of all, she would panic at the slightest of things even when she has been given little real official duties. Do not argue with me about that last part, because that is one of the reasons why TS should have stayed an unicorn. Should I ask you what would happen if something of an actually calamitous nature were to come to Equestria!
BTW, the reason why I avoid season three and four was that there were no friendship lessons which was the strongest point in this series. It's concentrating less on the dynamics within the Mane Six and other characters and more on individual stories. In other words, friendship is less emphasized.So think thoroughly on what the other side is feeling and saying before you pretend to be the main topic of discussion and then sprout nonsense. It's pathetic.

if u go on hub.com, they have the trailer for season 4 and the trailer on youtube. When I saw it, It didn't really look like Twilight and her friends anymore. It looked like Twilight and her sidekicks...

dont forget what Celestia told Twilight before she transformed.
she practicly said no more friendship reports, that she wouldnt be her student anymore which broke their relation from teacher and student into princesses... i'd trade that episode for Fluttershy turning into a dragon instead -.-

Why? It's not like her personality was going to change and even if it did the whole thing would be temporary. it'd be an episode about seeing everything through another light and perspective, heck i'd also want to see how creative they can make dragon designs. Pherhaps she'd looks like this or something www.google.se/search?q=dragon+… :3

Yes, you do have every right to complain and frankly I agree with you. Twilight just looks out of place as an Alicorn and the whole princess thing doesn't fit her character either.

Oh, and thank you for the fave on my journal. I'm glad I'm not the only one who wasn't happy with this new change.

I have no problem with Twilight being a princess. I'm not bothered with the fact that she may or may not outlive her friends. The show will never address it anyway, so it's not like we have to worry about it. It will ALWAYS be left up to fan interpretation.

I AM upset about the balance of the six friends. Now, more than ever before, Twilight is being fingered as being 'more important' than her friends, which just screws up the dynamic of the entire thing. Before, even though Twilight was the most main character, they all had a delicate balance of flaws and strengths. Twilight's main weakness was that she flipped out over small things. But they showed her getting over that. Also, she's now a princess, while her friends are just normal ponies trying to get by. There's a status-quo here that is being royally skewed (literally) and that changes the show's feeling.

Twilight wasn't MORE important than her friends. She was just as important. Another pony in the group, they were equals. They are now no longer equals. But they'll either TRY to treat them all as equals- which just affirms that the wings are more superfluous than anything else, which is insulting because it means she was only given wings to sell new toys- or they will show Twilight as being the princess she now is, which will make the show become 'The Twilight Sparkle... and friends.' show, which is just going to be ugly.

Well, the entire point of giving Twilight the wings WAS so they could make more toys to sell. Hasbro treated it as it wouldn't change the dynamic, and that they would still be friends, no matter what. They just thought it would appeal to the VERY young ones who thinks being a princess is so freakin' cute and awesome.

That makes another person in the boat! When I heard she was going to become an Alicorn Princess, I thought the newer season would suck with Twilight Sparkle no longer with her friends. In fact, I'm sure that while Twilight Sparkle started off with a destiny of sorts, Lauren Faust knows that it's now clichéd to have a character become royalty or something because "it's their destiny", give me a break!

Yes, on a interview, Lauren Faust explicitly stated that Twilight Sparkle was going to be Princess Celestia's successor, but how and what exactly Faust had in mind is now null and void.

I agree near 100%, except for the part about Twilight being immortal. Since she wasn't born an alicorn like Celestia and Luna appear to have been (if it's proved they aren't this theory is bullcrap), I like to think it doesn't change her lifespan. According to the Crystal Heart Spell book Cadance used to be a pegasus so this can apply to her too.

If Lauren still had control, uninhibited by Hasbro, I could see a finale where Twilight fails a test given by Celestia and cries her heart out though her friends try to comfort her. Pinkie would even think it's something to celebrate (seriously, people like Twilight, myself once included, could benefit from something like that. An instructor told me she planned to throw her daughter a party when she made her first C. :D). Celestia would tell her it's not a big deal, that she can retake the test, which she does and barely passes. The lesson would be you learn from your failures. :)

Unfortunately, even though she's still a unicorn in the comic, in the past issue #4, it's been revealed that she can take Chrysalis out with a zap, making her more powerful than Celestia by far. That seems a little too Mary Sue for my tastes and it boggles the mind. :iconfacehoofplz:

As far as I can tell, yes. But there's likely a driver. In STH it was the comic that led to the cancelation of Sonic the Hedgehog (not SatAM).
If the MLP show is driving the comic, then I don't know what to expect. :O The message I get is, "meet the new and improved Twilight, Elements of Harmony no longer required." :hmm:

I totally agree with you here.
I doubt that Twilicorn is here to stay, thou. Its an open secret that the people working on the show are not all too happy with it too (I like to read the "Everythings gonna be fine" line at the end as "Look, we know that was a total crapfest, but Hasbro forced that shit upon us! But don´t worry, we have an idea how to salvage this trainwreck!"). That and the massive backlash they recieved on the issue make it possible that its only temporary. I have seen cartoons all my life, so I know how pretty well how writing in them works. My prediction for the season 4 premiere is something like this:
Twi takes up her duties as new princess but things are not really working out and she gets doubts about the whole deal. Meanwhile a new menace is threatning Equestria, hse and the Mane 5 confront it, but things go south very fast. In the end Twi has to sacrify her Alicorn-Princess status to save the lives of her friends and defeat the evil. She says something adorkable like "I´m sorry to dissapoint you!", the others say something like "We love you just the way you are!" "We would have done the same for you!", Salestia says something like "I could not be more pround in you, my most faithfull student!", group hug, credits and Twilicorn will be dead, buried and never be spoken of again!
I think thats more or less the way it will wind down. Yes, a retcon like that is a cheap, clicheé cop out, but its theonly way to get out of this after they have driiven the show against the wall like that.
At least thats the only hope I still have for FIM. If Twilicorn stays, I´m gone.

OK, since you were curious enough to ask me for my opinion, I will gladly give it to you. OK, here it is:

First off, I understand your dislike with the concept and I definitely respect your point of view on the whole scenario. Being a fan of the show myself, I feel that the idea of having a character that we have followed and gotten to know from the very start getting wings and a crown is a very big step, far bigger than the other big steps the show has taken in the past.

But from my point of view, I guess the anxiety is more based on the fact that this plot element became official in the season 3 finale. Even if it's the most perfect time to add such a grand twist to the story, I feel that by doing so, it leaves a big heap of fans on a cliffhanger; a cliffhanger where said fans are worried if someone will come and save them, or if they will hang there until the rope finally snaps.

Now, while I understand that we all feel anxious about why we are all left hanging until season 4 comes out, I feel that we all have gone a bit too far. I feel that we have gotten so pessimistic with our fandom, that we have forgotten about why we're fans in the first place.

Even though I was right there with almost everyone else when Twilight became an alicorn, I have gotten a sense of perspective on the whole thing, and now I’m just so tired of all this drama. While I am skeptic to the idea of Princess Twilight, I’m still open about this, especially now when several workers on the show has confirmed that Twilight will be the same character as before, and she will still hang out with her friends.

I’m not saying that we shouldn’t criticise. I’m just saying that we shouldn’t take things so seriously. The show is supposed to make us happy, not depressed. The fanbase is supposed to make us have more fun with the show, not make us feel bad.

That’s how I feel.

On three, Larson has confirmed that Twilight won't leave her friends. There have been rumors that Trixie would join the mane cast, too, but I doubt it (not that I dread it, though).

Four, I share your painnnn. People say it's obvious for this reason or that one--but they're saying that because they want to sound smart. If a person actually believes that, they also actually believe that the creators ship Lyra and Bonbon, that Rainbow is lesbian, and that it's so obvious that Sweetie is actually Rarity's daughter.

Six, it was never confirmed that Cadence was immortal. Celestia and Luna are, but Celestia and Luna are also the sun and moon. It's not hard to believe that they're a different breed.

Otherwise, yeah. Yeah.

At best, I'll have to find some way to get used to this once season 4 comes again. Right now, I'll largely be off the fandom somewhat. It's just too much of a shock.
