Change by DarkFlame75 Change by DarkFlame75

Spanish translation




Many Bronies don't appreciate this change for Twilight. Even I originally had a very strong reaction. After seeing the episode and after thinking about it a bunch, I came up with this comic. I felt that this was the best way I could express my view. It's my hope that this comic helps people who like the change realize why and helps the other people understand the whole situation. There were many more things I wanted to say, but there simply isn't enough time and I'm simply not a wordsmith.

There's a longer, unedited version of the text, I'll probably post it in a journal tomorrow.

'Change' followupThis is a followup to this comic I posted last night.
I'd like to start off by saying that I'm happy with the reaction I've gotten so far. I have yet to hear anyone say that they hated her change. I have yet to hear anyone say that they love and fully embrace it, though.
I'd also like to clarify the point of this comic a little bit too. I wanted to make something different. Something touching. Not just another entertaining comic or another circlejerk. I wanted to make people think. I wanted to change minds. I wanted to reinforce opinions people already hold.
So far, I've somewhat achieved that. We'll see how it holds up as it spreads further around the internet.
There were many more things I wanted to say about this, but it started to get too long. There was no way I could illustrate the whole thing. Not to mention would anyone read it. I think it came out as the perfect length in the end. That said, I originally wrot

I would say that this is an amazing piece of work, while the art work itself and the style are not the best I've seen the piece truly does carry on the impact of what you want to get across. If I were to be stingy I would say that the art needs to be better, but I am still very pleasantly surprised by this work. You have done an amazing job. Also just for critiquing purposes I would say that several of the lines at the beginning didn't go together as well as they could, I had to make sense of them in my head. Maybe they are not in the correct place for a coherent train of thought? Still though I must congratulate you, for being a writer in artist form. Truly wonderful

I think that this is a great comic. I feel like I am one of the few who really genuinely enjoyed the finale, in fact it's one of my favorite episodes. I think that this comic, and others like it, help convey a sense of calmness and a don't worry attitude. (Those aren't the words I was looking for but oh well). I really like how you wrote it and the drawings you used to accompany it. That being said, I think that the drawings could have been executed a little better, but that's alright. Great comic! I loved it.

No problem, it's probably the best Princess Twilight related comic I've read. Like, EVER.

I stand corrected, this was nothing compared to whats coming next.  The way the finale is titled, Twilight might end up as the most powerful alicorn equestria has, and maybe the only one they have.  If not then the power transfer will mark her ascension from princess to goddes of magic and friendship, with the others being her new royal court/advisors.  The way the tree becomes a palace better than Canterlot, I say the tree thinks a goddess deserves one, and why not leave it in Ponyvile.  I say after this you can this is one of those moments in tv and show history where nothing will ever be the same and you can split the series into two halves: before and after all this.

Well it worked out in the end. I was pretty worried there for a bit though.

I know.  The part that really hit me like a brick was watching the library be destroyed.  Not just because I like books as much as Twilight, but because of all the memories they had made there.  I'm more mad that owluwisus flew the coup when Twilight could have used the moral support. That batttle reminded me of watching Dragon Ball Z:  they were throwing so much power around that Equestria is lucky to have any woods remaning.  And I like that the chest gave her a new place to call home,  I just wonder if the others are going to move in or come for important friendship meetings/summits.  And I hope it was placed where the library used to be, I dont think she could stand looking at the ruins all the time.

I say, the writers have done a 'decent' job of handling Twilight Sparkle as an alicorn and a princess. It started strong with Princess twilight Sparkle, covering many if not most of the concerns fans had with this change and showing that yes twilight is still Twilight. Also I consider this in my own mind as Twilight growing up, taking on new responsibilities, and even taking the first steps of becoming a great leader.

When I first read this comic I loved it, and I still do as it conveys much of my feelings of the subject of Twilight Sparkle and how one should not turn away from a character simply for gaining wings and a crown. For me personally, I say so what if she is a princess now... as long as they keep Twilight heart the same. A mare with a love of learning, one with a powerful bond with five special friends, one with a great destiny not yet fully tapped or even understood. When I see this new princess, I see the beginnings of a leader and teacher, who will still face challenges and uncertain paths, one who no matter what will never abandon those she cares about.

I have watched the show from its more humble beginnings and while I may not agree with everything, such as Discord's reform and fall from villainy, I believe even today it is still good... with lessons to learn and stories to tell. Twilight, while she will continue to grow and develop as a character, will still be Twilight. No mere wings can change this, at least not for me.

Thank you
