God almighty, I really hope this is fake...[link]
Ok, before people assume i'm just against change, or something, let me make one thing clear; I have no problem with change. Change is a necessity of life, and what keeps stories fresh. It keeps plots going, and keeps the attention of the viewers.
How change is used, can be a double edged sword. it can be great, or it can shit all over itself, much how I feel Hasbro and the writers are doing now.
For the longest time, I've been... indifferent with Twilight. The only issue i've ever had about her is, that she walking the blade's edge into becoming a Mary Sue (and not the good, interesting kind either). But, the writers have, for the most part, balanced her out throughout these 3 seasons very well, so her flaws keep her grounded, believable, and strangely realistic, personality wise (which is ironic, since she's a candy colored unicorn).
...but turning her into a princess.... into a fucking ALICORN... Not only pushes her over the cliff of believably, and into the dark depths of Mary Suedom, along side Alice from the resident evil movies and bella fucking swan, it's also shitting all over the already vague, and mysterious mytholigy the writers have been working on for 3 fucking seasons on Alicorns and their origins.
Since the very beginning, we are lead to believe Alicorns are simply born that way, into royalty, and having wings, along with immense power and immortality. We could of assumed back then that maybe Alicorn do earn their wings though tough trials, because so little was clear about them.
But then, Cadence came along. In the last two episodes of season 2, we see her as a young teenage filly, sporting her wings as she babysits Twilight. Because of this, we are now to assume that alicorns are BORN with wings, unless she somehow gained her wings at a very young age (which, from what we are hearing in season 3, with Twilights trials so far, is very unlikely). Cadence's mere existance screws over the mythology behind Alicorns, and now, with the introduction of the crystal kingdom, her very own origins are coming into question. Is she from the Crystal Kingdom? Or is she a decedent of their royalty? If she is, where is her royal linage? Is she related to Sombra? If she's directly from the Crystal Kingdom, does that make her over 1000 years old? If so, how do alicorns age, if she was seen as a teenager when she was with twilight??
And now, with Twilight becoming a princess, and an Alicorn, the writers have once again, fucked over the alicorn mythology within it's very own series.
I'm sorry for all the cursing, but this just royally pisses me off. Why ruin a good, modest, decent character like Twilight sparkle, as well as the Alicorn mythology being set up for 3 fucking seasons, just to give wings to a fucking character, and sell more fucking toys???
-sigh- Even so, I'll still watch MLPFIM, and finish off the season... But, if this continues on, I really really hope season 4 is it's last... because with the way the writers are going... I know I'm just going to be into more disappointment.
