:iconcelestiawthplz::iconsays3plz:Are you all ok with this?:iconsays3eplz:
:iconmayormareplz::iconsays3plz:Of course! I used to be a mayor. Now I'm Prime Minister Mare!:iconsays3eplz:
:iconapplejack3plz::iconsays3plz:With these agricultural subsidies, Sweet Apple Acres' growth has increased threefold. Now that's some fancy mathematics!:iconsays3eplz:
:iconpinkiealicornplz::iconsays3plz:We get lots of national holidays. And their catering is covered with exclusive contracts signed by yours truly!:iconsays3eplz:
:iconfluttershyishappyplz::iconsays3plz:Healthcare reforms have been announced.:iconsays3eplz:

:iconrarityknowsplz::iconsays3plz:Small businesses are offered tax cuts now! I'll be able to pay off my debts and expand!:iconsays3eplz:
:iconcelestiawtfplz::iconsays3plz:I... kind of could've thought about some of those things in place of all the galas and events:iconsays3eplz:
:iconheyy-twilightplz::iconsays3plz:You know how it is – you have to start small but with good friends at your side, you can spread the magic of friendship far and wide...:iconsays3eplz:

She should reconsider the name though. Looks silly.

It seemed funny to me that Twilight, so distraught about her situation as a princess in the beginning of the finale, felt totally cool with the way it was resolved in the end and claimed it was the role she chose to have. Being the clever filly that she is, I could totally see this happening with a little ambition. :laughing:
But eh, Celestia really does oversee day-to-day affairs related to ruling a kingdom. You could see it in the comics. I guess we'll see what happens as the new season arrives.
Say, does the flag remind you of anything?

INB4: No, no references to specific political events. Only in general.

Also, Applejack butt. *snicker*

Maybe the Everfree Kingdom would be a more suitable name.

Pinkie has a point. 3 out of 4 princesse's rule a realm. Why not Twilight? If Cadnce paid any attention to her kindoms name, she would be Empress Cadnce. Twilight is just using the correct title for her new kingdom. Queen outranks princess, so she has more power than those 2.

Ehh, I think works like this dance around how absurd it is to bother with the aquisition of political sociological power in the first place because friendship and power don't work this way at all... Please, the point of friendship is the reward of power to be used at will including pacifying the masses to not ask or know how to ask questions? No wonder there is such a controversy ... Though maybe the more accurate term would be "upheaval"

I also think Twilight got a bit little, but you have to have patience. Twilight might get her kingdom/empire in time.

Considering Ponyville has grown a lot in it's population since Granny Smith's youthful days and now a princess has a castle there, it's sure to attract a lot of attention and new ponies moving to town.  They'll need a Queen soon to keep law & order, it'll be too much for the Mayor of Ponyville to handle on their own. ;P

Last time I checked they don't have king and queens in Equestria, only princesses (and the occasional princes?)
Kartoffelkamm Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
yeah, and im pretty sure im not the only one who want to see if one of the prince´s blood is in fact blue... :)

Considering the naming conventions of Equestria, she could mean that more literally than normal.

PFC Black Jack: Couldn't find the headlight fluid Ma'am, but I did get the Lu- Wait...where's Hooker?
RD: Still looking for that Elbow Grease.

Wait...this question may be stupid but..
How did the ribbon in the last panel come out of the comic strip?
Rurike13 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015
By default the image would have a transparent background until the background for the comic was added, if the canvas size was larger then the size of the comics background, its white boarder and black boxes, it would leave space that the tip of the ribbon could be put, whether this was intentional or by mistake is up in the air.

Celestia was a chessmaster in when nightmare and discord was around but became a general failure when chrysalis,sombra and Triek showed up.If Celestia was trying to teach twilight friendship then why was she telling twilight to do things alone and not telling her friends about discord's betrayal.
watcher25 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2015
Exactly. This is all one of several reasons how what was great has been tarnished into unworthiness with painfully clumsy continuations

I like your insight

And it's all quite a soloist situation of few claiming rights over the rest when you have a power hierarchy no matter how you slice it

Friendship my broken hoof...

Here's the main benefit of being an immortal alicorn: the Kingdom's first, and ONLY QUEEN.  And once all her friends have passed on(in about a century), she do away with the ilusion of democracy and rule as absolute monarch.  Once she does that, she can split the guard into 2 branches: those that protect the kingdom and her subjects, and her Praetorian Guard(those who protect HER at all times, day or night), with absolute loyalty to HER and HER alone(picked from the best mare's from the acadamy whose loyalty to her alone above all others is beyond doubt).  All have the additional title of QUEEN'S CONSORT( with the captain as HIGH QUEEN'S CONSORT.)
watcher25 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2015
Well, that is indeed fitting for a time of disillusion

Where friendship is a shell of what it once was serving to keep the power in one set of hooves just because and a hardened colder heart to live with it

And of course by then who would care anymore than they do about celestial and Luna now?

.... Oh wait. (Insert critical awareness rebuttal, loading in progress)
morion87 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
You might have to run that by me again, in normall english. I really dont get the philosopocal mumbo-jumbo.
watcher25 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
Ppwer has been taken just because- for powerl's sake- just because it can be done

Power becomes the only reason

Friendship does not justify power

Power makes all else pointless

So when everyone who clwould personally care about her is dead, it turns out her supposedly sacred friendships were also pointless - just means to an end she was too naive to not be played by, and then too arrogant to change
morion87 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2015
Makes more sense now. And since its Twilight's own kingdom, Celestia cant do anything about it. Unless Twilight takes the same path Sombra dd. Which is unlikly. Even being the ultimate power, she's hopefully learned from what others have done. Crowning herself Queen, she has learned one lesson: a kingdom, to work effeciantly, needs 1 ruler, who has ultimate say on every matter. Which is why Prime Minister is just a figure-head.

Blind faith

The bliss of Ignorance

Victory syndrome

The delusion of entitlement

None are greatness or traits of worthy leaders- leaders that do great things without dependence or belief in ranks unless the times are dire

A prison without bars

A machine for the mediocre

A glass that is just as much empty as it may be full, but it won't ever get past that

Constant paradox constant lies


And why?

Just because. No real reason beyond the trivial and poorly though out and very little empathy in it

Empty save for rainbow puke

And there will always be disillusioned but even more lost "villains" because of it, perpetuating the lie

Eternal hell

What is unclear about that? Because numbed brains and frivolous stuff -as ecologically stable as it is- doesn't change the details, only is a cover or destraction

A band of fools lead by a mind that doesn't want individuals, just followers... No questions that may defy the status quo because it would violate the "sacred" efficiency even if that's the right thing to do

The vice of power- blindness and numbness

Celestial has done it to perfection like a breeding ant queen

And the equivalently driven offspring obey the same will without even knowing it

Hmm. Bioshock also warned us of this

Humans war but ponies lie

How sad how empty how pointless

And the cycle continues

See the problem?

Or Does anyone care?
