How many friendships has Twilight destroyed under Celestias orders? At the moment I'm not even sure, but it seems she has had a hand in most of the main Unicorns of the series.
Even in the first episode, the pilot her studying had taken its toll. Crushed Moondancer's hopes and dreams of a best friend.
Ruining Trixie's reputation, a laughing remnent of what she once was.
While we have no concrete proof of what went on with Sunset Shimmer she obviously knew about Twilight in some way to have known she was a princess while in a different world enough to steal her crown and not Luna or Celestias.
Even if what Starlight was doing was wrong she destroyed years worth of progress in just a single day.
And she is making it even worse by abandoning Sunset Shimmer for Starlight as an apprentice.
She was meant to check on preperations and make friends then go back home. She was never meant to focus on NMM, none of this would have happened if you had just stopped. Tell me Twilight,do you feel like a Princess yet?
I've noticed this too. Many of these problems she was justified in ending, but they also caused new problems or ruined the life of the one who started it in the first place. I kinda want to seem them touch on this more, I think it'd be interesting.
>"We tried to save you!"
"You're no savior. Your talents lie elsewhere."
As true as these are, they would've held more of an impact before season 3. Heck only one of these were because of Celestia's orders.
Yes Twilight screwed up by not going to Moondancrer's party but she finally (after several seasons) went back to make amends.
Yes Trixie's reputation was ruined but that was because Trixie fessed up saying that all of her stories were fake.
This I agree on the fact that we don't know how Sunset knew Twilight became a princess, but the reason why she went for Twilight and not Luna or Celestia is because Twilight's crown actually had an element of Harmony Stone as it's gem. As far as we know, Luna and Celestia's crown do not.
Starlight's plan for an equal society had both a good side and a bad side. The only issue was that Starlight didn't go through the de-marking process herself and lied to the whole community. In the end, Starlight did go back to Our Town and the Equal 4 did welcome here back. And besides, it was the Map that sent Twilight there, not Celestia.
And as people have already stated, The movies and shows are separate stories so neither are canon. At the same time, we don't know if Starlight will actually be Twilight's apprentice come Season 6.
>Crushed Moondancer's hopes and dreams of a best friend.
Remember Twilight back in the pilot? She wasn't paying Moondancer much attention to begin with, in Amending Fences she couldn't even recall her name.
>Ruining Trixie's reputation, a laughing remnent of what she once was.
If you're equating friendships to reputation, how many friendships did Trixie hurt as part of her show, do you think? A dozen? A score? How many more if she had continued?
>destroyed years worth of progress in just a single day.
Our Town is still there, Starlight and everyone still lives there, what progress exactly was destroyed?
Shimmerfags, ladies and gentlemen.
If anything, it's scary how Twilight lacks perspective, she instantly denounced every alternate universe as worse than the one they had, without proper outlook on the entire situation.
>Crushed Moondancer's hopes and dreams of a best friend
Well, she came back and fixed that. If anything, it improves her character by making her responsible for her actions. Amending Fences was great.
Trixie was a lying cunt, she got what she had coming. Not to mention Trixie was a malicious bitch, enslave an entire town in vengeance
>caring about eqg
>destroyed years worth of progress
First off, what progress? Secondly, she didn't destroy anything, merely exposed the truth of Starlight who attacked her first.
>abandoning Sunset Shimmer
There are far more glaring problems in Twilight's actions than with the unicorn antagonists, hell I'd say those were the cases where she was most rational
>she instantly denounced every alternate universe as worse than the one they had, without proper outlook on the entire situation.
You mean in the S5 finale? That was explained by Zecora:
>Beneath this salve, no changeling hides, for it reveals the truth inside.
>The meaning is far worse, I see, for it is we who should not be.
The "truth inside" is that these false universes "should not be".
>Race to the map while we hold off their attack. Stop Starlight and put the whole world back on track!
The world, THE world, is currently not "on track".
I think that Twilight comes as a fucking crusader, they cause harm in the way of what they think is right, for what they think is best.
And everybody that doesn't follow her ideals is immediately punished and corrected.
Because it's a distortion, an anomaly. As the spell progresses, the false worlds starts making less and less sense.
I guess it's kind of similar to the other Starswirl spell in Magical Mystery Cure. It makes no sense that Rarity should ever get a job working with the weather to begin with, or that anyone would ever allow RD near pets unsupervised, they're all fucking awful at what they do.
But this... distortion, brought on by a spell, is causing them to do it regardless.
Cutie Re-Mark is like that on a worldwide scale, forcing the world into a shape it's not meant to fit.
On the basest level you can say it "should not be" because it's upsetting to Harmony, on a more tangible level, it's because the spell is fucking dangerous.
The Map and table the spell is intrinsically linked to grows progressively more distorted and worn down every time they change something, in the final iteration of the world there's nothing but a wasteland and the Map doesn't even glow any more. What would have happened if they had went back one more time? Would the table have ceased to function completely, leaving them stranded? Would the world itself cease to be, drowning them in the void? Would the spell collapse the world back on it's own?
>She was meant to check on preperations and make friends then go back home. She was never meant to focus on NMM, none of this would have happened if you had just stopped.
DYEWTS? She was sent to Ponyville to make friends so that she could defeat Nightmare Moon. Her whole path has been guided by Celestia to accomplish this result.
