Memory Lane by I-am-knot Memory Lane by I-am-knot
READ THIS --> As many have pointed out, I know "she wont out live her friends". I know that the writers have said that. But is that really such a big deal when watching fan work? If you do think so, please keep it to yourself, I've already heard every version of disagreement now.

Twilight "only" thanks Pinkie because when the filly is offering to give away her balloons to cheer up the princess. And when saying "Thanks you" to the filly, Twilight is reminded of Pinkie Pie in that specific moment and thus uses her name.

I didn't forget Rainbow Dash. She is represented by the prism in panel three.

Inspired by :iconagamnentzar: :icontim015: browse.deviantart.com/art/The-…

We have reached that point again where there are just too many comment for me to answer. I have read everyone and I'm thankful for them. Even if I didn't reply.

I had to give everything full stars, as it actually had a tear run down my eye. This is true to being alicorn, you outlive your normal friends, and the representation to this picture really gives in some thought that Twilight is nearly forever, forever to have memories of her dead friends.
Thank you for making this, it's truly a beautiful piece of art and meaning, it even shows Twilight's adjustment to her crown and armor. Her expression is very Twilight, you can see the emotion in her eyes.
Too bad, we all know this is bound to happen. Amazing artwork.

It took me a second to figure out what was going on in this one, but after I had it sorted out it almost made me shed tears. It's kinda sad that alicorns will outlive the other pony types, but I'd rather not think about it because I dont want Twilight to be alone. Since I'm a huge fan of Twilight myself, I think it's no wonder that this piece of work affects my feeligns in a way.
Anyways, this is a beautiful work of art with a meaning to it.
I really like the art style and the story this one tells.

He's a dragon, so he has a longer lifepan, which means he's alive somewhere, maybe in the castle or in a cave somewhere sleeping.

Her life might be forever now, but so is friendship beyond the limitations of time.
Even if Twilight outlives her friends, quite possibly the biggest lesson is that even in life and death, they're always in your heart. A little cliched, I know, but that doesn't make it untrue, right? The fact that she remembers them, the fact that they had such an affect of her, both proof they they existed.

Friendship, it really is kinda magical~! ^u^ *shot*

Wait... The writers have stated that she won't outlive her friends?

That is both good news... and Mildly confusing. Did the writers mention how that works? cause, Celestia and Luna are Alicorns too, and are practically immortal (depending on who you ask, some say they just have really really really REALLLLLLLY long lives). I mean, I could understand, however, that Twilight, despite being an Alicorn, is not immortal like Celestia and Luna, but, and I know how this might sound, I would still expect her to have a longer life then most ponies.

So, did they mention how exactly that works, and if Cadence is the same way? If not, whatever, I was just curious. I hadn't heard about this until just now.

alicorn does not = imortality.
Celestia and Luna are special cases. They were immortal before getting their hooves on the elements. Just like Cadence agea and will eventually grow old so will Twilight and her friends

And that's one of the Theory's about his whole affair. I think it is the case, or rather, they just live very long lives. We probably won't know for sure unless Hasbro decides to tell us how it works.

Though I agree with your theory.

:iconytsejam58:
ytsejam58 Featured By Owner 1 hour ago
Okay. yeah that's just how I justify it. I don't think Hasbro will explain it in the show but maybe Cook and Price will include it in one of the comic series. They tend to cover things The show won't.

Twilight and Cadenza could be considered artificial alicorns. I'd imagine that Celestia and Luna are natural alicorns.

That makes sense. It would probably mean that, while Twilight would probably have a longer life the her friends, She and Cadenza would probably die at some point.

They probably just wont have anyone die. That way no one outlives anyone else in the show. And since no series has aired for a whole lifetime, it's pretty safe.

I like to point out Snowdrop was a fanmade animation made by Silliy Filly Studio so i can't really answer sense only they know that. But i guess sense Twilight had to prove herself to be a good leader, Snowdrop might not have the qualification to be a ruler just like Starswirl the Bearded as Queen Celestia told in the season 3 finale.
That make most sense for me. ^^

(btw i refuse to call Celestia a Princess sense she was ment to be a Queen, but no said Hasbro.)
