Next question….

The only way I can see it working out depends on your world view of Alicorns. If you believe they were once common, but something happened that caused most to disappear (and this OC was among those), it might work better (if needed in present day, use time travel). Otherwise, adding new Alicorns generally frowned upon regardless of how well it is done, so there would not be a objectivity “good” way of doing it.

…Um… Lets assume that the fic in question already has quite a few ways to create an Alicorn.

The question is more making the character itself be… not horribly contrived in the process.

The best I can come up with is a genetic mash up “Test Tube Baby” of Luna and Celestia made to… Compensate for Luna’s absence… Before Celestia figured out how to do it all herself.

The resulting Mutant gets put in temporal stasis for a while… That is, until the facility breaks down (long after its abandoned).

Having few experiences of its own, it learns about the outside world via the internet. And thus ends up having most of her interaction once leaving be similar to a fan-girl meeting her heroes.

…And I’m still not sure if that sucks or not. But then again, all my fan-fics and Fan-comics end up turned to 11 on the crazy scale, so that make’s it a rather … tame back-story in comparison.

Edit: And by “quite a few ways to create Alicorns” assume it’s like there’s a grab bag of plot devices so long, it begins to look like Marvel Comics… Or DC Comics.

@ZeroBlue4
Well, I’m no expert when it comes to that kind of stuff. However, since you seem to be familiar with DC universe, maybe make it something like Doomsday is to Superman. Have a clone of one of the known Alicorns that was created by another group (evil, or at least fearful of Celestia/ Luna if certain events happened in the future). You could either have the idea that the other Alicorns are the enemy implanted, or that something like this was planned, but didn’t happen before events that caused the project to stop. That’s just an idea, and I think would make more sense than Celestia just forgetting about this project IMO.

Oh no, you got me to start writing fan fiction. I told myself when I entered this fandom I wasn’t going to do that. Shame on you ZeroBlue4.

@Jacob
In my head canon, Celestia pretty much doesn’t actively remember anything from a certain time ago unless she gets a reminder to jog her memory. Not so much “Permanently forgotten” so much as it just “slipped her mind… for a thousand years.”

So it takes a letter from Twilight to remind her that her sister is coming back and she should gather the champions of the elements…

…Discord’s mischief to remind her to renew the seal on Discord…

…And a vague reference about something important returning to the northern front reminds her that there is a crystal empire is out there.

The Crystal ponies aren’t the only ones that can forget for a while until their memory is jogged. In fact, its truth in television I’d wager.

At this point, her forgetting about a project isn’t out of the question…

…And even before I turned “Forgetful Celestia” into my head-cannon, my main comic had a gag where Celestia forgot to return control of a Hero’s Guild to Luna after her return.

This is a really long rant for one sentence of your comment isn’t it?

Edit: Don’t expect me to post again for another 6 hours or so. I’m gonna take a nap now so that I can catch the pony streams and stuff. So… Wake up again at 10 PM here…That’d be like… 6 AM for the Americans on this board? I need to get my time-zones sorted.

@ZeroBue4 I can completely understand why Celestia would forget that kind of stuff. it all happend 1000 years ago. I can barely remember what happened last week. Just because you can live for 1000 years doesn’t mean you can remember 1000 years.

As a note related to a previous question…

Has anyone ever done anything with the various “Glitch” Alicorns? Those ones that are supposed to be animation errors of something?

Or with the “extra merchandise” Alicorns?

Or that one Princess that shows up in a book in “hearts and hooves day”?

For those that don’t remember, I’ll put them behind a spoiler tag or two… Cause this may take up a bit of screen room.


(Is it weird that I think the Alicorn in the hearts and hooves day book is kinda cute?)


As an unrelated side note, my afternoon nap was quite refreshing; thanks for asking. I’m now ready to see an episode in the dead of night that will probably be airing in daylight hours for the rest of you.

It’s a good thing I am born of darkness, or this might be taking a bit of a toll on my body.

@ Zeroblue4, outside of the ones you listed, the only other ones I can think of were a few of the royal guards in the Royal wedding (they have horns and little bit of a wing outline can be made out) and a toy that I think was intended to be the daughter of the Royal couple. Unfourtunatly the only image I can find off the top of my head for the latter is one that was making fun of how scary the toy is, and I don’t remember her name.

I tried to post images of the guards and the pink Alicorn kid. But something screwed up somewhere.

I know her name. It’s “Skyla” I believe I recall.

I think the name fits… she looks like some kind of dream cloud thingy. You know, those things gen 5 Pokemon games have been using.

So… What is this going to be the princess of I wonder? Some kind of sky kingdom? Kingdom of the Sylph/Cloud Ponies?

Eh… I find Leon to be more interesting. I mean… Leon has the body of a filly, but has the feet patterns of a male, and has a tomboy haircut ripped straight from Rainbow Dash.

Seriously, I want you guys to be seriously confused about whether that’s a Filly or a Colt. You deserve to be.

This is probably the only time a non pony image works here:

@Zeroblue4, I do think her name was Skyla. I don’t know if they have plans for her in the show, or if it was just another bit of Mech that Hasbro wanted to sell that has no effect on the story.
As for Leon, he is pretty much completely non-canon as far as the show is concerned, so I wouldn’t worry to much about it. I’m pretty shure, though, that he is a he.

Perhaps its a he. But considering the gender neutral language used when referring to him/her, I’m not so sure.

I’m not going to lie, one of the main reasons I want to think of Leon as a she is partly because there haven’t been any tomboy Princesses yet. And considering the world of MLP is kinda loose about how a girl should behave, isn’t it likely that such a line of thought may extend all the way up to the throne?

I mean, the mane 6 has a fairly even split between more tomboyish and androgenous attitudes vs girly attitudes. I know that it’s a stretch to lump androgenous in with tomboy, but when the pony in question (Twilight) has just as much reservation about doing things a bit too girly as the tomboys, even from episode 1 (running away from Rarity’s dress ups). I think I’ll make an exception.

If Leon turns out to be a female, I will squee so hard at there finally being a tomboyish princess in this fandom to work with.

…If she shows up in canon show. I will squee harder…

…but if the mere mention of Leon is completely forgotten by Hasbro, the MLP;FIM team and everyone else. I will Fan-Fic so hard.

Erm… that came out wrong. (Or did it?)

I’m feeling a lot better now…had a good rest, and got some advice…

Thank you all for being buddies


Alicorns, you say?

Well, I do think about that, Zero

For one, I think King Sombra pretty much eliminated the need that an alicorn was the de facto equine leader. He proved that even a unicorn was able to rule a kingdom (and according to Celestia, a really powerful/necessary one too).

Another thing I liked to re-point-out is Chrysalis and her changelings…

…all have wings and a horn. I know, different race, but still an equine one. That’s what we’re looking at. Equines , not necessarily ponies (in fact, we see four different equine groups in the series so far: regular ponies, crystal ponies, zebras, and changelings). This practically proves alicorn-like species can be subservient too.

So what are alicorns?

One theory I put forth is that its simply a genetic mutation. The fact you have wings and a horn is peculiar, but you’re not exactly a god. The reason why Celestia and Luna are the way they are is because they overthrew Discord and inherited some sort of power that made them immortal leaders of the land.

A bit like the Mandate of Heaven in China. The rulers are the sole rulers and hold all the powers of one (in this case, it includes immortality in Equestria) until such a time when they are unworthy of the position and are overthrown by the next rightful ruler(s) (Discord beaten by Celestia + Luna), and these new ones inherit the same mandate.

This also explains Cadence, being a powerful, but not exactly to par with her aunts, being. Hell, Shining Armor was able to generate a shield that defended all of Canterlot up to his wedding, Twilight has also shown abilities in shield making, so that rules out its “an alicorn thing”.

Another theory that can be used in conjunction or replace it is that the alicorns (or just Celestia and Luna’s family) are a bloodline. Like the Targaryens of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) or Mongols and Manchus to China. Foreign rulers who have held the position of ruler of a nation for a long period of time, a sort of dynasty.

However, that mention of Cadence (being denoted to love and all) does mean that there’s possibly something to being an alicorn. However, he specialty may just be a result of her special talent for which she got her cutie mark, rather than a god-like attribute

So in short; being an alicorn doesn’t exactly make you a god. But you’re pretty special nonethelss

@PopperFett the Mandalorian Brony, I don’t know if Chrysalis and the changelings are Equines. They certainly are Ponyoid (pony equivalent of humanoid), but the resemblance may be due to convergence rather than having the same origin. Of course, this is looking at it being a zoology major.

Also, your version of "pony group classification seems a little odd. I felt it was more Earth (possibly including Crystal ponies), Pegasus (including Luna’s bat guards), Unicorn, Alicorn (which may not be a true biological distinction, as we don’t know their exact origin), Zebra, Donkey, and mules
Of course, now we have some sort of sea pony in the book series, so that may need its own grouping as well.

Edit: Also: A-Teamesque sound track FTW!

In a way, I’m surprised that anyone is still trying to say that Cadance is a different kind of alicorn than Celestia and Luna, but then I remember that headcanon still reigns supreme for most.

Let me just point a couple things out here. No one but Cadance has EVER cast a spell of any kind as large as the “love and light” shield in the S3 premier, except maybe Discord. Despite the fact that it was related to her talent, it was still far larger than anything Shining Armor or Twilight had ever made, and theirs was a different kind of force field anyway. And if you try to blow that off as her special talent, just remember that moving celestial bodies is the special talent of the royal sisters, so you would be effectively blowing off their ability as well. I’d say it’s a fact that Cadance is indeed on the same tier as Luna and Celestia, but much younger, therefore not nearly as knowledgeable.

I think it’s pretty clear that every established alicorn in the show has a tendency toward much stronger magical ability than an average unicorn. But in Shining Armor, Twilight, and Sombra, we see that it’s not impossible for a normal unicorn to have massive innate power as well.

That means the only major distinction between alicorns and other ponies is slow aging, and I’ve argued before that this may be due to genetics as well.

So, did that actually interfere with watching the new episode?

I like the episode. Babs Seed’s voice was a little off from what I was expecting, but not bad. I liked how they beat us to making a sad backstory to explain that she was only a bully because of a troubled past, and it was done realistically IMO. Poor fanfiction writers. Like I added to my prior post, the A-sounding sound track was awesome.

I called it! It happened! I win!

Don’t believe me? Here’s a few snippits Taken from my little attempt at disscussion of the episode earlier…

Respoilered since some may not have watched the Ep yet.:

“When her blank flank is mentioned (as if its an insult), she hides it.”

“My theory: Babs has joined the Snooty Squad because she believes that she’s less likely to get picked on if she teams up with the SS to torment the CMC.”

“She’s not picking on them because she finds it fun. She does it because she is trying to escape her own problems of the threat of being picked on herself.”

Also, did anyone else hear how Bab’s voice drops a few pitches when she starts getting all intimidating? (Or is that spoilers?)

So, trying to find comparable sizes between Canterlot and The Crystal city we saw in S3. Trying to find similar areas (i.e. Minas Tirith for Canterlot). If someone could PM me some comparable measurements of the areas of the force fields Shining Armor produced in S2 and Cadence’s in S3, it would greatly be appreciated.

Suddenly, I have I crazy fic idea!

Anyone who hasn’t watched the episode yet, watch it, then come back and read the idea.

Its really two ideas that work together as one, so try to keep up.

The three Ponyville CMC visit Babs, and find that things are still bad for blank flanks in the eyes of some of the more… posh. So Applebloom comes up with a plan. They create a system to “fake” the same circumstances that happened in pony-ville.

The idea is that a disguised foreign cutie mark crusaders come in, play the victim (which may earn some an acting cutie mark), let the native crusader get some street cred; then the visiting crusader leaves.

The other half is that since this kind of ploy requires that few non crusaders know about it, it leads to the need to sneak around at night to do their crusading. And focuses on their midnight escapades, and their attempts to keep these escapades a secret. (Possibly gaining the attention of Luna, who may be quite amused.)

That last bit is inspired by the sneaking around behind Bab’s back the CMC did at night in the episode.

Feel free to steal that idea.

Huh, That must have been the moment the stream was hacked. I didn’t get to see jack happen involving stuff between the beginging of the cold opening and after the proper opening. Or between the song, and the CMC’s plan.

Cute episode. Babs was okay I guess.

I gotta wonder though – aren’t kids going to be more likely to take a “bully or be bullied” message from this over the old and tired “the bully could have been bullied first” one? Not only did I find the latter to be inaccurate half the time when I was growing up but the former presents what could be accepted as an actual solution to the problem – negative as it is – given that babs got bullying immunity and popular friends out of it. I guess they presented “talk to someone you trust” as the right solution, but it wasn’t positively reinforced until the end. If I saw this when I was a kid I would have been pretty confused. But I dunno. I generally don’t take interest in the lessons of the episodes or how people react to them, I was just wondering if I was the only one who got that idea.

Also I think that was one of the better songs we’ve heard throughout the whole damn series.

The song was awesome! Really well made

Oh, almost forgot:

Jokes aside, they hit on a solid issue. It is a kids’ show after all, and I think they handled a difficult issue very well.

And I have a big test tomorrow, so don’t expect me to be around.

I’ve never been a big fan of the CMC episodes, I don’t know why. As individual characters, I love them; they’re great and I love seeing them cameo in non-CMC episodes. When you put them together, however, they’re just grating. I had to skip one episode and rewatch it later in my first full watch of the show because I felt like I’d already seen two others that day and I was sick of them.

The song was fantastic. Not only was the song itself great, but the video went with it so well that it was able to make me keep my Youtube tab up, when I’d been switching back and forth the whole time before that. Playing it like a music video instead of a musical song worked out great. I can’t wait for the hard rock version they wanted to do, if they get permission to release it. Also loved the callback to the music video format right at the end. One thing, though – I’m pretty sure we’d established Scoots couldn’t sing, and she sure did there.

On the other hand, I could predict the story as soon as Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon showed up and Babs joined them. Considering she was obviously bothered by “blank flank” and joined them, I knew right away she was bullied, and when they made the trap, it was even more obvious it was going to be a “trap backfires because the target is in the same situation as the trap setters” kind of climax.

Then there’s this:

Oh god the juxtaposition of everything I laughed so hard

EDIT: Just saw this. Nair is gonna be so pissed that it even exists.
