About

Twilightlicious is a phrase and hashtag (#Twilightlicious) that is used to refer to anything in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom as amazing or awesome. It was originally meant to refer to anything related to Twilight Sparkle[1], but has developed into an overarching phrase.

Origin

On March 7, 2012, Tara Strong[2], voice actress of Twilight Sparkle, posted a tweet[6] acting as Twilight performing a short free-style rap, which included the phrase “Twilightlicious”, similar to Fergie’s[4] “Fergalicious”.

Two days later, she posted a “VocalTwit”[3] of herself acting as Twilight again, singing the lyrics from the previous tweet[7], as well as singing versions for some of her other past acting roles such as Raven of Teen Titans[8], Bubbles of The Powerpuff Girls[9], and Omi of Xiaolin Showdown[10].

Spread

The phrase quickly caught on, as well as the recording as a whole, and began to be included in YouTube videos[12] and as a hashtag in MLP-related tweets[11].



Sound Cloud[5] has also had a high volume of remixes that use the audio clip.
Three days after the original tweet, the domain name twilightliciou.us[13] was registered[14]. The website hosts a YTMND-like pairing of animation and music, featuring Twilight dancing to music from a YouTube video. The viewer can choose a different video for the music and manually adjust the BPM of the animation to match it, and the site provides a link to the modified version[13].

It’s certainly a thing, but it’s not particularly widespread or even that well-known within bronydom. Can’t hurt to document it now in case it gets bigger (hey, where else are you going to get info on the Web about budding memetic phenomena…even stuff with limited but some spread), but it’s nothing confirmable yet.

I can find some images though, and I may be able to submit some information about how Tara Strong began to become very involved with bronies somewhat recently (it feels like it led up to her post about being Twilightlicious. It’s kind of a cute love affair working both ways.
