Raven: Y'all gotta remember, Celestia and Luna are pure alicorns, while Cadance and Twi are artificial alicorns. So, who knows? Maybe artificial alicorns just have longer lifespans instead of immortality....... or not....... Well, you never know.
Oops, wrong batshit tweet by McCarthy, I forgot what the original topic was. Anyway, unless Twilight dies in the show than what she said there has no merit. The only way she can't outlive her friends is if dies before them (unless they all become immortal, which is fucking retarded. If Twilight is mortal and she doesn't die before all her friends than it means she outlived some of them, which is directly against the tweet.). Since I doubt that will happen the question really has no relevance to the show whatsoever and as McCarthy obviously just said it to appease unreasonably upset fans it can't be taken as canon. Anyway, alicorns are NOT immortal. Faust has confirmed that. She stated that Twilight's destiny is to replace Celestia, so this isn't really as big an issue as everyone says because Twilight is still going to die.
Well we can agree that Twilight is not immorta. nor most likely will she be getting extended life. Also it has been confirmed the toilet will not be leaving Ponyville, of her own choice I might add she will continue to call this town her home.
If she is going to be Celestia's successor, which makes the most sense and was the original intention, than she most likely get extended life. I'm not sure if that's still where they're going as the mythology has sort of been getting retconned into something much stupider. As much as I dislike McCarthy's recent writing, I feel a bit sorry for her for the crap she has to put up with, both from Hasbro and from the fans.
The toilet won't be leaving Ponyville? I didn't even know there was rumors about moving lavatories. That's a scary thought. My word! Glad that's not happening. That being said, I fail to see what another random McCarthy tweet has to do with anything. We weren't talking about Twilight leaving Ponyville.
I have every reason to take what McCarthy says as canon. First, if you haven't been paying attention she has LIED on twitter numerous times, most famously about Twilicorn. Second, her writing has gone to shit starting with A Canterlot Wedding. Third, while she is the head writer right now Faust was the creator of the show, the true writer of the show, and this goes against everything the original show was about, the original show which actually had a coherent plotline. It's no more pointless to not accept this as it is to accept it. EQG being canon is pretty much pejorative in everyway. There reason to have to accept it as canon if it has no effect on the show, so I'm completely justified in ignoring her confirmation.
well if you read tis story [link] you will say it's about the place before this drawing came.
if the story is toooo long for you or you are lazy, here is a summery of the story - 'cause i read and suffered it-
so apple jack dies. there is a wedding. twilght and rainbow have a long fight. fluttershy dies. rarity almost dies. twilight turns rarity to an alicorn. rainbow turns in to an alicorn. celestia is MAD!!!!!!!!! twight and rarity and rainbow are banish from equestria. they make ponys who don't want to die an alicorns. rarity is trying to make things so they can get to the ponys faster if they themselves can't come to them. uh golden apple dies.... the end.
it's a sad story. i didn't put to much away but if you want to find out what happens read the story.
anyway twilight is sad - like me then i finished the story - but all will come back.? they should make a statue of the main six in ponyvilly. great art work.
This is the main reason why I didn't like the fact that Twilight is an alicorn now. Because won't she outlive her brother as well? Bah! Why Twilight, why?!!! It hurts my feels! But I do love the picture ^.^"
Twilight...Applejack managed to get a horn and wings in one epic event, so now all of the champions of the Elements of Harmony have ascended. I know, but how long until I can finish off this emo goth phase? It was a joke, dear, I told you five years ago.
Sorry to bother you, but I'm planning a fic somewhat along the lines of this image. It'll be called And Then There Was One. May I have your permission to use this image as a cover image for it on FimFiction? You'll be credited of course, complete with a link back to this page. And of course I'll link you to the story should you want it.
Did no one pay the greatest attention to when Twilight became an alicorn? Celestia clearly said that she had fulfilled her destiny up until she became an alicorn, that is where celestia helped. Becoming an alicorn had nothing to do with rewards or twilight putting a spell on herself, it was her destiny to become an alicorn and a princess.
Your point may be valid, yet it doesn't apply to this picture. The point was to underline the consequences of her becoming an alicorn, not that celestia may have been cruel with her decision. Destiny or not, she's an alicorn. The only question is whether alicorns have extended lifespans or not. :/ Thanks for commenting though
Personally this is my opinion: There are alicorns and Immortal alicorns. Luna and Celestia are the only immortal alicorns in the series. Twilight, Cadance and any other alicorns you see are just princesses. They don't actually live forever.
If I remember right, Celestia send mane 6 into dangerous missions and after all the time they saved Equestria, they not received or asked for any reward.
Twilight become Alicorn not as reward, Celestia just helped Twilight to gain it indirectly but it was Twilight who transformed herself.
As for Twilight friends, we just saw like 5 minutes when she become Alicorn and coronation, and Twilight already thanked her friends in front of entire Canterlot, and there are still 2 parts and entire season 2 left, so we will see do Twilight friends are left reward-less.
