Sorry To Have Ruined All Your Fanfic by TexasUberAlles Sorry To Have Ruined All Your Fanfic by TexasUberAlles
Man, however "Magic Duel" turns out, it is going to destroy a LOT of headcanon. There are like a dozen wildly different takes on Trixie out there that have hundreds of deeply-invested fanfics and comics apiece. This is gonna be one of those episodes that causes a lot of howling.

Ah I love the smell of magical warfare in the morning or the afternoon anytime really.

I am frankly stunned at how they put the episode together in such a way that they didn't really invalidate most of the fanfic and headcanon except for Twixie (Sparklemoon? IDEK), but shipping is always invalidated by canon unless LyraBon. Obsessed!Trixie and Asshole!Trixie are in full effect, but it could also easily be read as Redeemed!Trixie having been influenced or corrupted by some outside agent just before the episode begins, to go look for the amulet and settle old resentments. That's my personal take, because a reformed Trix is a more interesting character than just another Dark Fangirl.

I'm also amazed that they didn't take the opportunity to bring Sombra back here, even as a hint. They must be saving him for an *epic* Boss Battle in the Finale.

And for the record, I don't think this invalidated Twixie. On the contrary, it strengthened it.

Here's hoping they do. He was a huge letdown.

Given how rare it is for the MLP franchise to reuse an antagonist*, I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.


* - To my knowledge, Trixie is only the second villain in the franchise to get an encore appearance, the first being the witches from the volcano in G1.

Yeah, I guess Hydia *did* come back, at least offscreen; since The Smooze wasn't successful, she decided to destroy the ponies with Gak instead.

Nightmare Moon sure scared the hardcandy out of some tykes in Luna Eclipsed, even if she was just Luna gettin' her Tom Savini on. Parasprites came back long enogh to be used defensively in combat by Twilight. If John deLancie is to be believed, Discord will be back this season, and Chrysalis wasn't destroyed, just hurled into the wilderness; she's already back in the comics.

Sombra will be back; they went through the trouble of showing us that his horn can spread his evil influence when it's cut off, then showed it very nearly bouncing off the camera in the climax.
