Well, if her name was Solaria…
That would be kinda awkward if we met…
I think it’s just a case of Celestia sounding better and fitting the role close enough. Kids don’t know Latin, and don’t care, so it’s not a big deal. I especially doubt it’s a prophecy, to be honest.
I am ecstatic because other people are speaking up about hating Trixie.
Actually, I don’t hate her, I just think she doesn’t deserve the fame, as she is an immensely flat character. Same with Chrysalis and other characters. I don’t hate or dislike people for liking them, I just don’t personally see the appeal. I guess I’m guilty of it, too, because I think Discord is fucking hilarious. Though, in my opinion, he was deeper than most of the other antagonists.
Deciding who has more personality between Trixie and Fluttershy is an opinion, really. I think that Fluttershy has a wealth more than Trixie, but you would disagree, apparently. We can argue about it all day, but it won’t really matter. Trying to change somebody’s favorite pony is like trying to punch a brick wall to death: you look like a jackass, and you are one.
And, as a note, I am note saying Trixie sucks and has no personality. Compared to many cartoons, she’s a solid antagonist. I just don’t think that with all the well-developed ponies in the show, Trixie deserves to be so widely loved.
Gigatoast nailed what the optimist in me wants from the episode, RandomMan nailed what the cynic wanted, and I’ll nail what I expect:
If she does return, she’ll likely try to begrudgingly apologize first. Her behavior warrants a reaction similar to being ignored by the Mane Six, and she tries to apologize again, not being sincere once more. Eventually, she finds Fluttershy, stops her from running off, and tries to sincerely apologize. Fluttershy accepts, and forgives Gilda, who goes around apologizing to everypony.
She then flies off to fight a meteor plummeting down to Equestria.
Because fuck you, that’s why.
