And so the fandom proceeded to DIE. by FlyingBrickAnimation And so the fandom proceeded to DIE. by FlyingBrickAnimation
I'm probably going to get thousands of flames for this, but I don't fucking care. Hasbro's really jumping the shark with this "Alicorn Twilight" thing, and it's going to ruin the show for me. I'll watch the episode, but I'll prepare for the worst.

I know this is old now but...I have  never understood how anyone was surprised. I saw it coming back in Season 1.  I mean, Twilight as a unicorn was very magically gifted, wielded the Element of Magic(the HIDDEN Element at the time), went through trials and tests for most of her life, what ELSE could it all have been leading up to? At the very least it should have been obvious when the Crystal Empire came about. Maybe it wasn't as easily noticed as I thought it was.  I just have never understood the amount of surprise and loathing it brought from other fans of the show.

Looking back at it, the thing I most hate about it is the fact that it was so rushed. Something as big as this deserved a two-part episode at least, though I'd have personally stretched it out to the full season, or half season.

Not if you think about her becoming an Alicorn as the end result of everything we see up to that point itself. If you start from Season One and go forward with that in mind you can see how Twilight's tests from Celestia, and all the little nudges in the right direction, how it all leads up to her becoming a Princess in her own right. So while in episode context it might feel rushed on the whole it took more than one season to get there. The biggest hint possible for her future destiny is right there in front of our faces in the very first episode. The Element of Magic itself. Worn on her head as a crown. It doesn't just set her apart as the leader of the group of Elements but as a leader in general, it gives us a hint as to what our awkward little bookworm is capable of.  I think it was nice we got to see her go from awkward little bookworm who had not a friend in the world within her own group, to a Princess of Friendship, we got to see a character grow to be the best she could be, and we will get to see what she does now that she has truly accepted her roll as Princess.

Now that's true. I do agree that we were given little hints that this would happen from the beginning, and I'm sure most bronies suspected that this would happen. What I didn't suspect, though, what that it would happen so soon. I figured that the whole "Alicornication" thing would work better as a series finale, so it can leave things open-ended about what happens next. Plus, becoming a princess is a damn big milestone in her life, so it would work a lot better as the end, but it happened in season 3. There's still many more seasons left, and all I'm wondering is, now that she's a princess, where do we go from there? How do we top that? Season 4 tried to top that, what with the "Tree of Harmony", Twilight getting a castle and all that, and honestly it kind of felt underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I liked season 4 for the most part, but the premiere and the finale were a little... ehhhh. And there were many things about her becoming a princess that were never answered in the episode itself and could've been answered if they had stretched it out to a two-parter. For one thing, it would've left plenty of room for the seven songs. For another, it could have taken the time to resolve whether or not she was totally okay with it, whether it would mean that she does outlive her friends like every brony is fearing, etc. All if it had only been two parts instead of one.

I don't think those things are going to be addressed at all, ever. You have to look at this from a child's point of view. To children, death isn't something they think about, its just ABSURD to think that one day Mother and Father(or whoever raised you) will die and be gone forever. Even if a child knows of  things such as death very rarely will they apply that to those they know and love. To a child, you are going to live for forever, because they can NOT see life without you if you are their parent or guardian, or someone very important to them. So for the target audience Twilight is always going to be alive and having adventures with her friends, no matter what, because that is how it works. Even as the adult I am my mind has a hard time wrapping around the fact that one day, I will not have my fathers here, that I will be, in a way, alone. So fr them to address the finer points of immortal or not immortal is something I will not hold my breath for.

I would have been more angry if they had made her a Princess as the end of it all. I'm not one for those types open endings. Now if they just left it at "And they had many more wonderful adventures for the rest of their lives." or something, that's fine. But being all "TWILIGHT BECAME A PRETTY PRINCESS, THE END!" would make me rage I think. We might see being Princess as a big deal right now but we also don't have the full picture, we don't know what the ending will bring, it could be that by the end of it all becoming a Princess will just be a stepping stone in the life of the character known as Twilight Sparkle.

Well, that's your opinion, but I respectfully disagree. I will let you have your own opinion though, I've been able to mostly ignore Twilicorn in the newer seasons so it's not as much of a problem for me.

I Find It Funny How An Oc Can Be Born A Rainbow Super Powerful Alicorn, And Most People Love It, But When Twilight, A Canon Character, Who Has Saved The World Over Three Times, Becomes One..
SHE SUCKS SO MUCH.
Her Personality Is The Same.
Unlike Those Ocs, She DESERVES It, And Has Her Same Old Personality.
Now, I Never Said You Support Them, But Other People In The Fandom Are Like That, And It Annoys Me.
Sure, The Oc's Ain't Canon, But You Must See My Point.

No, I get where you're coming from, though admittedly I see very few alicorn OCs who aren't completely ridiculed XD Exactly the reason I decided to make my own OC an earth pony, the opposite extreme.

But tbh I've kinda grown used to her being an alicorn. I wouldn't say I like it (I still prefer her as a unicorn and make all my arts in pre s3 canon) but I don't rant and rave about it as much as I used to.

I'm not trying to bash people here, but why do lots of people hate her as an Alicorn? I personally love her as an Alicorn
