Magical Mystery Cure (and that one children’s book) simply makes it look like Celestia gives out princesshood just for the sake of making more alicorns, and Twilight is simply joining the alicorn club. Maybe Season 4 will give us the bigger picture, but again, I don’t think the current staff has the same vision for the show’s future that Lauren did, or they would have saved Twilight’s ascension as the climactic end of a large-scale conflict. Also, I don’t think that they would do something as bold as killing Celestia or otherwise removing her from reality.
