Filly, you’ll be a princess, soon

For 99% of the few people who actually read Bullp*ss; you can go about your business. As indicated by the title, this probably doesn’t concern you. Everybody else, come in a bit closer. It is time for rumors to be dispelled. I have something to tell you.

I’m actually listening to Urge Overdrive Neil Diamond right now.

Yeah. There has always been something cool about that song. I think it is the toy piano.

Also, Twilight Sparkle is becoming an Alicorn princess.

This photo accompanied an article on the Entertainment Weekly website, which states the season finale will feature Twilight’s coronation ceremony and see her undergo the physical change. According to show writer Meghan McCarthy, the purple unicorn always had a greater destiny, and for her selfless service, she has finally earned her wings, figuratively and literally.

Fans of the show have considered this possibility since the beginning. Okay, adult, male fans of the show. The kids probably never really gave it much thought. Now that it is actually happening, there has been mixed reaction from the community, ranging from exuberance to disgust. There are arguments as to the “real” reasons this is happening, from theories that it is a toy franchise thing to her transformation just being good character development.

Personally, I find this fascinating. Such consternation over a television show. Might I remind everybody that we are talking about a show meant to sell toys to little girls.

As for me, I really don’t care either way. She might as well go super Sayian. Perhaps the sisters need some vacation time. Maybe it is just to sell more toys. That I enjoy the show at all is a flipping anomaly. I’m not going to complain If I start losing interest in where the show goes. I didn’t cry when Heroes and Lost got so damn convoluted after a few years that I had to walk away.

It was nice while it was nice. So long, and thanks for all the cupcakes.

Why complain about 3 fun years?

Secretly, I hope they all get Alicornized, and become the new rulers of Equestria. Season 4: New ponies, with these bad-asses doing the mentoring. After all, there is only so much you can do with the same characters after a while. It worked with Reboot.

The artist for the above can be found here. Thanks.
