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.

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.

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.

Doesn't affect my (as-yet-unrealized-beyond-preliminary-character-sketches) fic yet... in fact, it pretty much cements my idea of Trixie going on a roaring rampage of revenge. (Granted, my planned fic is a fusion fic, so I'd be playing very fast and loose with canon anyway...)

meh, most of her return is practically fanfiction based as is xD

"Of Mares and Magic" is essentially this without the down the roads shipping, and a troll ending that was added to screw with people that didn't want anything less then a Twixie ending.

We'll see, for now though we'll be getting that thing we've been asking for 2 seasons of a return of Trixie. Like Luna, they are going to have to do SOMETHING extreme to do something original that fanon hasn't done to death :P

The ones that voted she'd return for prideful revenge were right! And yet, those that said she wasn't all bad are also right! Trixie remains sorta neutral and simply wants her dignity and fame back. WHY CAN'T IT BE SATURDAY! XD

Shame that the hour long thing turned out to be a hoax, that means you can expect some crazy stuff to happen from the get go! That's a lot of Trixie to fit into one single episode lol

I think of it this way:
A) She's likely possessed, or at least influenced by her necklace. Which I am, until proven otherwise, assuming is a shard of Sombra's power (likely, his horn took the form of the necklace).
B) Okay, so I'm a huge fan of Trixie's redemption, but given that's not happening, at least we're seeing Trixie stick to her guns. If a "villain" can't see the error of their ways, then let them at least persevere in what they're doing.

I'm still hoping for Redemption Story (where it turns out her lingering bitterness and need to be accepted in Ponyville got twisted into dictatorial madness by Sombra, and she begs forgiveness once he's driven out) at the end, but I'm still hoping this won't be the Final Season, so I think I'm probably going to be disappointed a lot no matter *how* awesome S3 ends up being.

Come the weekend, my cup will run over with the tears of canon-smacked Trixie fans. And it shall be glorious.


What can I say, I get a kick out of seeing Hasbro and Studio B crush fanon cliches left and right.

"Only 2 alicorns!" "Black and red are not valid pony colors!" "No new pony species/subraces!" "Twilight is strongest unicorn bar none!" All smacked down in less than half a dozen episodes.

This fandom is rapidly running out of knee-jerk excuses to slap the Mary Sue tag on OCs.

It's getting sort of hilarious the way everything that moves lately is getting labeled as a Mary Sue. I think that trope officially jumped the shark when I saw someone call Spike a Mary Sue for saving the day with the Crystal Heart.

I have a picture titled "Since When Does Twilight Sparkle Ever Fail?" that's going up next week (so I can add elements to it from "Magic Duel"), because that line from the Success Song is one of the funniest damn things I've ever heard; I *love* it when the creators of this show lampshade stuff like that.

For some reason, fandoms in general love to slap the Mary Sue tag on any OC that's capable of standing on even footing with a major canon character at anything at all.

The Mary Sue trope jumped the shark long before FiM made it to Lauren Faust's sketchpad.

To be honest i dislike the angsty whiny and usually Twilight obssessed Trixie who´s always soooooo sorry and will become a better pony and what not.

So the dark and mean Trixie from what we saw in the spoilers is a great thing for me! :D
