I Wasn't Prepared For This by TexasUberAlles I Wasn't Prepared For This by TexasUberAlles
Remember when they discovered the Elements of Harmony? How everypony else got a gorget/collar, but Twilight got a tiara? They've been setting this up *since Episode 2*.

Tumblr version: here.
-----------------------------------

I was prepared to do my best
To pass the merchandising test
And reach Episode 66
But I wasn't prepared for this

Three more seasons would have been a breeze
Ratings figures I recite with ease

--Not even counting iTunes downloads and YouTube viewers, the MLP Season 3 premier was viewed by 601,000 people on The Hub, a year-to-year increase of 204%!
--She is correct!

I can clear the shelves at Toys R Us
But I wasn't prepared for this
Will we be canceled or renewed?
I can't be sure...

--She can't be sure...

My fan base is loyal, my market share huge
Our success is pure

--Our success is pure

I was sure I'd be Princess eventually
I just didn't think it would be in Season Three
So no I wasn't

--Oh no, she wasn't

No I wasn't

Prepared... for this!

You know, I came to realize that she won't remain an Alicorn Princess for long. Why? How? You see, the writers and other staff said that Twilight won't outlive her friends. So, the possible way is that changing her back into a Unicorn.

That's just never going to happen; what McCarthy meant was that Twilight isn't the same kind of immortal Alicorn as Luna and Celestia, but rather an ascended Alicorn like Cadance, who as we can see from Twilight's flashbacks appears to be aging at a more or less normal rate.

Yes. It was visible from the beginning that Twilight was "ment" for higher tasks and that not only because of the tiara. Nevertheless: Right now and here she really looks like they put her into shoes which are too big for her. XD

 

Amazing work :clap: I really like it.

I agree. One not need to look far in the series to see that Twilight Sparkle was supposed to be an Alicorn. As for whether they did it to soon or not, I suppose that is an exercise for the viewer.

Though, I still think that the backlash about it was very silly. I'm fine with people having an opposing opinions, but only until things start to get out of control. A primary example of this was the Mass Effect 3 ending backlash. that was just silly. Actually, beyond silly, boarder line stupid.

Oh well.... Hopefully Twilight will grow into those shoes....

The Alicorn part of it wasn't really obvious until Cadance showed up, though; Lauren Herself originally intended her and Twilight to just be Unicorn princesses. Once we saw Princess Pinkhorse, the toy die was cast.

I penciled this later that week, yeah. If I had watched the spoilerific video of the song when they released it at SDCC, I probably would have had drawn this last Summer before the season even started, because the inevitable result of S3 would have been immediately obvious.

I think this was the piece i saw when i started following you, and now...lol. It makes me laugh as everyone freaks out! Im with you, i think the fandom is being trolled. I've read the original plan for the season finale and it doesnt even mention princesses, though the summary could easily include it.

Oh wow, you have no *idea* how hard the fandom is freaking out about this right now. EQD put up a commercial clip announcing that the title of the Season Finale has something to do with a princess being coronated, and in 15 hours that post had *over 1400* comments. I'm personally hoping that Hasbro is just trolling us and this is all leading up to *Cadance* being made *Crystal Princess*, but the herd is totally stampeding in circles right now.

This made me laugh my ass off! Considering I rewatched the crystal empire and it got me thinking. Why is Celestia training Twilight so hard? Why is she tossing all this big tasks on her?

I mean yes she must be rather old... but also gets me thinking where her niece... the only other Alicorn comes from... Cadence? And then Blue blood... her nephew? Do they have more siblings? Or what? Any who... is it possible that Celestia can actually pass the throne? And will do so to Twilight? there by making her an Alicorn through some spell of some sort?

but seeing this... it made me laugh my ass off because I imagined that face in that scenerio now. Pfft =w=

p.s The other mane six becoming some form of royal guards as well. Since techincally with Twilight they all use the elements of harmony xD

I'm not sure why some people are so upset over this concept, personally I think it would be pretty awesome if Twi turned out to be a princess or royalty of some sort. :iconbigmacshrugplz: I get how some are afraid that it would change the show too much...but I imagine that it would be revealed as a far-in-the-future thing in a season finale/premiere and she would go on as usual. That's only my take on things, though. :D

Anyway, I love this picture. The look on her face is perfect. :XD:

TexasUberAlles Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Twilight actually *is* associate royalty now; her brother is a prince! She's also Celestia's neice by marriage, umpteenth times removed. Heck, given that Cadance is an alicorn, Twilight is probably a lot closer to The Sisters than Blue Blood, since according to Lauren Herself he's her nephew "on her mother's side, about 50 times removed".
