History: Twilight grew up in Canterlot, a town mainly populated by unicorns. She lived a happy life with her parents and her older brother Shining Armor, an aspiring royal guard and she also had her foalsitter Princess Cadence who she viewed as a sister. When at the Summer Sun Celebration she saw Princess Celestia rise the sun. Inspired, she began to study magic and her parents enrolled her in a special school. But during the entrance exam, an explosion caused Twilight’s powerful magic to be triggered and she caused chaos until Celestia calmed her. She recognized the filly’s potential and took her on as her student with Twilight gaining her Cutie Mark as well. For years, Twilight studied magic and became occupied with books and studying to the point that she alienated anyone who tried to be friends with her. Celestia therefore sent her and her assistant Spike to Ponyville where Twilight made friends with other ponies. After these friendships defeated the evil Nightmare Moon, Twilight chose to stay and study the ‘magic of friendship’.
As time went on, Twilight’s bonds with her friends grew as she became more friendly and open. The true extent of this came when the evil being Discord was freed and changed her friends into the opposite of themselves with Twilight unable to help them. Devastated and abandoned, she was Discorded until Celestia sent her various letters to remind her of the friendships that she made which gave Twilight back her resolve. She saved her friends and they sealed Discord away once again. Consequently when worried that Celestia would separate her from her friends, she was so desperate that she magically created a problem to report with Celestia having to assure her that she would never do such a thing.
Twilight’s challenges were far from over. Her brother and Cadence were to be married and she felt angry, sad, and worried about her brother and their growing distance. It led to her lashing out at Cadence and angering everypony, making her feel guilty. But ‘Cadence’ was a fake and Twilight was reunited with the real one when trapped in a cavern. They stopped the wedding and saved Shining Armor, who proceeded to save Equestria with Cadence. Twilight was later sent to the Crystal Empire to discover why it returned and she felt uncertain and worried about the task. She discovered that the ponies were under an evil influence but gave up her chance to end it and pass her test when trapped so that Spike could do it and stop the chaos. Spike succeeded but Twilight felt bad at failing, but her sacrifice allowed her to pass, much to her joy.
After Celestia allowed Discord to be freed, Twilight was given the Elements of Harmony and sent a book She read a spell, discovering the next day that she accidently switched her friends Cutie Marks and therefore their destinies She was guilt-stricken, but the urge to save her friends gave her resolve to fix things and to finish an incomplete spell. Upon succeeding, Celestia turned her into an Alicorn and named her a princess due to realizing the magic of friendship. While grateful, Twilight was unsure if she was ready until when in the Crystal Empire, a unicorn named Sunset Shimmer stole the Element of Magic and escaped through a mirror. Twilight gave chase, finding herself in a human world and meeting the human versions of her friends who Sunset ripped apart. Twilight, unable to stand for this, restored the girls friendship and stood up against Sunset’s bullying. The six friends defeated Sunset with Twilight making her realize that with how she is now, she will be all alone. She returned to Equestria with more confidence in herself.
While more confident Twilight still felt conflict about her ability to live up to her title. She was forced to take command when Everfree Forest went out of control and the Princesses were captured. She discovered the cause as the Tree of Harmony where the Elements were found, but due to the danger her friends sent her away. Discord berated her for willingly walking away, provoking Twilight to go back as well as realize that to undo the damage, the Elements were to be returned. The ponies saved Equestria, but also summoned a lockbox. Twilight realized that she could fulfill her duties, but she also wasn’t for sure what her duties were and felt upset about her lack of purpose. The princesses encouraged her to be patient before an emergency erupted with the rise of the power-draining Tirek. Worried and since Tirek didn’t know of Twilight, the princesses transferred their power into her. She faced Tirek once he discovered her, even losing her home, but she surrendered when her friends were threatened. She even asked for Discord to be freed despite betraying them and due to it, Discord have her a necklace that she realized was a key to the lockbox. The girls, using other keys that they gained, unlocked Rainbow Power, defeated Tirek, and a new castle arose. Twilight discovered her purpose as Princess of Friendship and her duty was to spread the magic of friendship.
Twilight was again summoned to the human world when Sunset called her to help against the Sirens. Twilight did her best, knowing how her friends were expecting her to be able to help, but she felt pressured due to the expectations. When everyone argued more and it seemed like they were trapped, Twilight nearly broke until Sunset got them all to realize that they need to listen to each other for their friendship to survive and not be ripped apart. The girls escaped and faced the Sirens in a musical showdown, defeating the Sirens and neutralizing their ability to absorb negative emotion. Twilight, her job done, returned to Equestria with Sunset having a magic journal to talk to her, giving Twilight a student such as she was to Celestia.
Personality: Princess Twilight Sparkle is a pony who is intelligent, studious, and determined to do her best. She is very talented at magic, as such since it is her special talent, and she has worked long and hard to become as good as she is. But due to it, she became more consumed with books than with making friends and it wasn’t until she went to Ponyville that she began to truly understand how valuable friendship is. As such she has gone from anti-social and closed up to a warm, friendly, and compassionate pony who is devoted to her friends and is always there to help them no matter what.
Twilight is very humble and she tries her best to not be a show off, though she has realized that it’s okay to showcase her talents. She is a kind-hearted pony and she loves her friends, number one assistant Spike, her family, and her mentor Celestia very deeply. She has only shown romantic attraction to one person, Flash Sentry, a teenager that she met when in the human world. Though the feeling is mutual, they haven’t gotten together and even though a pony Flash exists, Twilight hasn’t formed any sort of relationship with him. Most of what she does is for her friends and to help other ponies while continuing her studies in the magic of friendship, soon excelling to the point that she became a princess, something that she is still shocked by but is finding her purpose in her new role and is very devoted to doing her best. Hobbies of hers include reading, studying, managing her library, and of course practicing magic. While more sociable, she never lost her love for reading and is more than happy to curl up with a book all day when she feels like it, only now she’ll invite friends to read with her.
Though she is overall a friendly and selfless pony, Twilight is not without her faults. There are many things that she had to lean, such as accepting her friends for who they are even if she didn’t like a way that they acted and to not judge others by their interests and hobbies, worrying about Rarity when captured due to her proper interests only to see that she was able to handle herself. She can stress out very easily, especially when it comes to tests or if any fear of losing her friends comes up, almost going insane at the thought of being separated from them permanently. She can also be insensitive at times, once commenting that Pinkie Pie isn’t suited for caring for babies with her in earshot and while she wasn’t wrong, it was still insensitive to her friend. Though her getting truly angry is rare, she can be easily frustrated and annoyed when push comes to shove. She can also have a hard time forgiving others, such as Discord, though with time she will and even then she will defend a reformed person. She also feels confident and uncertain about things, such as her role as a princess and how well she can serve it, but her friends are always there to lift her up.
Twilight is not perfect, nor will she ever claim to be. She is a hard worker- even if overly so and while she has her faults, she has learned to improve them. She has learned much from her time in Ponyville and even though she is now the Princess of Friendship, she knows that there is still plenty for her to learn. But she enjoys learning, so that is perfectly fine with her. Twilights’s devotion to both her duties and to her friends has shaped her into a mature, compassionate, and loving alicorn who no matter what, will never lose faith in her friends and will always face any evil that comes at her for the good of Equestria. Now her task is to spread the magic of friendship throughout Equestria, a task that she alongside her her friends will serve full-heartedly.
Gem Considerations: Her Gem will be a Tanzanite. It will be shaped like a six-pointed star and be embedded in the middle of her forehead. The gem is known as the 'stone of magic' and the 'workaholic's stone', both fitting Twilgiht perfectly. Twilight can at times be over-stressed and is very much a workaholic, so the gem will help her learn to calm down and to be at ease more. It will also help her when she is feeling upset or uncertain about herself while strengthening her sense of harmony. It will let her evolve into a better person (pony?) and fee more confident as a princess and how to go about it.
- Energy blasts
The powrcap will leave Twilight a little uncomfortable. But she has learned to deal without her magic before, so she can again. But due to her experience with magic and her abilities not being too horribly different from what she already knows, it wouldn't take her long at all to control and master it. It would still take practice, but she'd adapt to it fairly well.

PERSONALITY: Twilight is a very kind and sweet girl. She is very studious, and can often be found studying or reading a good book, even if she’s read it hundreds of other times. She is a responsible and well-organized unicorn who is very good at planning things and has great leadership abilities. While Twilight is a nice person, she has a bad tendency to over-work herself and she can get stressed out very easily, especially over things that she does not understand. She also has somewhat of a temper and gets irritated with the crazy antics of others, but she has slowly learned to accept others for who they are.
Twilight began as the apprentice of Equestria’s ruler, Princess Celestia. Twilight has learned much from her mentor, and this and her natural ability with magic has made her a very smart and powerful pony. Twilight takes her studies very seriously, and she enjoys learning new things. She wants to be the best that she can be, so she practices magic endlessly to master whatever spells that she can get her hooves on. No matter what the spell, Twilight will practice it over and over until she gets it right. Her studies have made her highly intelligent, but she isn’t very sociable or athletic because of it, though she has been slowly becoming better at both. Twilight prides herself in her magical ability, but she tries not to be too prideful in order to not annoy or anger her friends.
She did not start out as the dedicated friend that she is now though. Long ago, she was still nice but very much a loner who prefered books over ponies. Circumstances forced her to make friends, but when she did she began to see the true importance and power of friendship. She soon accepted the friendship of five other ponies and was instructed by Princess Celestia to stay with them and study the ‘magic of friendship’. As she learns more about friendship, the greater a friend she becomes. This does have it’s dark side as when she once believed that she would be separated from her friends forever, she went crazy and almost caused a riot due to her irrational behavior. But she does love her friends dearly and is very dedicated to them. She is also this way to her assistant a baby dragon named Spike whos he views as a younger brother. She also loves her family a great deal,, especially her big brother Shining Armor and her sister-in-law Princess Cadance.
Even after accepting friends, Twilight still enjoys reading, studying, and performing acts of magic. She can be rather socially awkward at times, not knowing what to say and sometimes being- overly-excited for simple things such as a slumber party (but to be fair it was her first). She can also be insensitive at times, mainly when under lots of stress. She also sometimes looks to her books too much and has problems accepting things that cannot be explained by logic. However she is a very dedicated student and she never gives up no matter how bad things may seem. She will always stand up for what’s right and has no tolerance for bullies or bad guys. While not the strongest physically (though she WAS able to carries a boulder before with some effort), she is still rather fit and agile, enough that she can handle herself until help arrives. She is a natural leader and is a very determined and self-sacrificing girl and she will do anything for the people she loves,. even give up her life.
Due to how Twilight matured form a secluded unicorn to a friendly and accepting one who understood the value of friendship and willing to put herself at risk to protect her fellow ponies. Princess Celestia saw her as ready to become a princess. Twilight was given wings and became an Alicorn as was also given the title of princess. She has some worries over if she is up for the task, but also believes that she can get through it as long as she has her friends by her side.HISTORY; Twilight was born and raised in Equestria in the prestigious city of Canterlot. She had a fairly normal upbringing, living with her parents and her older brother Shining Armor, who she was very close to. She was also close to her foal-sitter, an Alicorn princess named Cadence. When a filly, Twilight went to see Equestria’s ruler, Princess Celestia, raise the sun at the yearly Summer Sun Celebration. The display amazed Twilight, who decided that she wanted to become as great with magic as the princess. She taught herself basic spells, such as turning a page of a book with magic. Her parents enrolled her into a school for gifted unicorns, but Twilight had to pass an entrance exam to get it. The exam involved using magic to hatch a dragon egg, but Twilight found that she couldn’t do it. But a sudden boom caused her magic to increase and she not only hatched the egg, but she caused the instructors to levitate and she turned her parents into plants. She also aged the baby dragon, but her out-of-control magic was stopped by Princess Celestia, which caused the effects to be undone.
Impressed by Twilight’s raw power, Celestia took the young foal in as an apprentice and Twilight also gained her Cutie Mark that day. Twilight was given the baby dragon to be raised as her assistant, and she named him Spike. For the next few years, Twilight would be taught all about magic by the princess and would become focused on her studies. This caused her to drift away from Shining Armor and to become anti-social because of the devotion she put into studying. When older, Twilight read about Nightmare Moon, a powerful Alicorn who wished to cause eternal night to Equestria, but was sealed in the moon by Celestia. Twilight believes that she will be free soon and tries to warn Celestia, but instead she and Spike are sent to Ponyville to over-see the preparations for the Summer Sun Celebration. Twilight reluctantly accepted the task and met five ponies named Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie. They all wanted to be friends with her, but Twilight didn’t want friends and she believed that all of Ponyville was crazy.
When the Celebration was about to start, Celestia was nowhere to be found and Nightmare Moon appeared, having indeed been free and she begins to spread her eternal darkness. Twilight discovers that only the legendary Elements of Harmony can stop Nightmare Moon and to her disdain, the five ponies she had met refused to leave her side and went with her to find the Elements in the Everfree Forest, which most ponies fear. During this, Nightmare Moon tried to stop the five ponies and used her magic to cause monsters to attack the six ponies or to cause some kind of obstacle. During each incident, Twilight was helped by the five ponies, and she slowly began to warm-up to them. Soon, the six reached the broken-down area that housed the Elements of Harmony but when Twilight tried to activate them, Nightmare Moon abducted her and stole the Elements.
Twilight faced Nightmare Moon and was able to trick her into lowering her guard so that she could again try to activate the Elements, Not only did she fail, but Nightmare Moon destroyed them right before her eyes. Twilight felt all was lost, until she heard the five ponies searchign for her, which caused the ‘spark’ that she had been trying to cause. She realized that her five friends represented the Elements Honesty (Applejack), Kindness (Fluttershy), Generosity (Rarity), Laughter (Pinkie Pie), and Loyalty (Rainbow Dash). Twilight at last accepts them as her friends, which allows a sixth element to appear, the Element of Magic. This turns into a crown while the five previously destroyed Elements turn into necklaces and together, the six ponies use the Elements to defeat Nightmare Moon.
The girls lose consciousness, but when they wake up they see that the night is gone and Princess Celestia appears before them. Nightmare Moon has been reverted back into Princess Luna, the younger sister of Celestia and the two reconcile. Celestia is proud of her student for being able to find the Elements and save Equestria, but Twilight feels sad as she’ll now have to leave her new friends. Celestia then decides to give Twilight a new task; to study the magic of Friendship in Ponyville,. This means that Twilight can both remain with her friends and continue her studies, making her happy.
Throughout season 1, Twilight learns several lessons such as having to choose between friends and learning to admit her reluctance in doing this and hurting their feelings (“The Ticket Master”), how to realize that it’s okay to be prideful of her skills as long as she doesn’t act vain about it (“Boast Busters”), how to accept what she is good at and to find her place among other ponies (“Winter Wrap-Up”), and various other lessons concerning friendship. She has faced several problems during her stay in Ponyville, such as dealing with the boastful unicorn Trixie (“Boast Busters”) and facing monsters such as a Hydra (“Feeling Pinkie Keen”) and a dragon (“Owl’s Well That Ends Well”). One day, Twilight tells the Cutie Mark Crusaders, a trio of fillies with no Cutie Marks, on how she gained her’s and she later learned that Rainbow Dasdh unknowingly caused the boom that increased Twilight’s magic. This had also caused the other four ponies to gain they’re cutie marks, and they realize that they were connected before they even met. This makes they’re bond even stronger.
The first season ends with Twilight and her friends attending the Grand Galloping Gala in Canterlot, which Twilight hopes to sue as an opportunity to spend time with her mentor. Things don’t go as planned, and the night ends in a disaster for the six ponies. Celestia is pre-occupied with the other guests, and Twilight is able to barely spend any time with her, After a huge incident caused by a series of events, the six ponies go to a local donut shop to get over their misery, but Celestia arrives and declares that it was the best Grand Galloping Gala she had ever been at. Twilight and the other girls cheer up, making the night a little bit better.
Season 2 begins with a strange series of event occurring, such as the clouds raining chocolate milk and the animals gaining strange body types. Twilight tries to undo all of this with her magic, but it fails. The six are then called to Canterlot by Celestia, who tells them that the chaos is being caused by the recently freed God of Chaos, Discord. He once ruled Equestria with an iron-fist and caused havoc for everypony until Celestia and Luna used the recently-discovered Elements of Harmony to seal him away. Since the six ponies are the only ones who can use the Elements now, Celestia asks them to seal Discord gain… only to find that the Elements are gone!
Discord appears along a stained-glass window, revealing that he stole the Elements and he leaves the ponies a riddle on where to look for them. Twilight believes that the riddle leads to the maze and she and her friends head to face Discord. The God of Chaos uses his power to steal Twilight and Rarity’s horns and Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash’s wings to make sure that they can’t have an advantage. He also separates the six in the maze and he breaks down all but Twilight, turning them against their respective element. This causes Rainbow to abandon the five and upon reaching the end of the maze, Twilight finds that Discord never said that the Elements were in the maze, so she caused her friends to be broken. She then realizes that the Elements are at her library in the very book that she first learned about themt. She leads her four changed friends there, and she finds the Elements.
Twilight uses Spike as the Element of Loyalty with Rainbow gone, and she convinces her friends to help by convincing them that after this, they’ll never have to see each other again. But Twilight finds that the Elements don’t work as her friends have turned against they’re Element and they quickly abandon her, which causes her to break and turn from her element. She decides to leave Ponyville, but Celestia sends Twilight back the friendship reports that she has written when she discovered a lesson on friendship. Twilight reads them back over, which causes her to return to her old self and regain hope that she can save her friends and Equestria. She confronts her friends and uses a memory spell to remind them of their friendship and to restore them to they’re old selves. The six girls face Discord again and with they’re friendship again strong, they turn the God of Chaos into stone.
The next episode, “Lesson Zero” happens not long after the fight with Discord, and Twilight realizes that she hasn’t learned anything about friendship for a week. She fears that this will cause Celestia to force her to return to Canterlot and be demoted, which causes her to frantically try to find a problem to resolve., She finds none and her friends don’t think of her problem as anything serious, which causes her to snap and to create an incident herself., She uses her old doll and a powerful spell to make the Cutie Mark Crusaders fight over the town, but the spell also ends up affecting the rest of the town. She confesses this to her friends, and the spell is only stopped by the timely arrival of Celestia, who Spike had called out of concern for Twilight. The five believe that Twilight is going to be punished, so they go and confess that they didn’t take Twilight seriously and that they should have been there for her. This causes Celestia to allow Twilight to stay and she assigns all six of them to send her friendship reports, whenever they learn one, that is.
Sometime later, Twilight befriends and helps Princess Luna become more accepted with the ponies after she had reformed during “Nightmare Night”, a holiday devoted to Nightmare Moon. Luna has trouble with learning modern customs and her past as Nightmare moon still scares others. Twilight tries hard to help her, but Luna is having a difficult time to the point where she nearly cancels Nightmare Night. It isn’t until she saves a young foal that Luna beins to adjust and she starts to become more accepted b other ponies, much to Twilight’s happiness.
The second season ends with Twilight and her friends being invited to the wedding of Twilight’s brother, Shining Armor. Twilight is angered when she gets the news, not having even known that her brother was dating and she realizes that she has grown distant form him since she came to Ponyville., She confronts her brother, but she forgives him and is happy when she becomes the best-mare and when she realizes that Shining Armor is marrying her former foal-sitter Cadence. But upon encountering Cadence again, the Alicorn seems to have no memory of her and seems rather mean and rude not only to Twilight, but to everyone but Shining Armor. Everyone believes that this is because she is stressed about the wedding, but Twilight isn’t convinced and she becomes further concerned when she sees Cadence use a spell on her brother when he has a head-ache. She confronts Cadence at the wedding rehearsal, which upsets Cadcence and answers Shining Armor, who says that the spell was to cure his headache. He bands Twilight form the wedding and her friends walk out on her, including Celestia. Cadence appears to go to comfort her, but she instead uses a spell to trap Twilight underground to prevent her from interfering in her plans.
Twilight finds herself in a long-forgotten underground cavern and she is mocked b Cadence, which causes Twilight to try and fail to blast her. She then destroys some crystal, and she finds a messed-up and weak Cadence, who tries to tell Twilight that the Cadence she saw was a fake. Twilight doesn’t believe her until Cadence does the dance that she and Twilight did when they were younger. This makes Twilight realize that the real Cadence had been imprisoned, and the two go to escape and save Shining Armor. They reach the wedding just in time and Cadence reveals the other pony to be Queen Chrysalis, a Changling. Chrysalis reveals herself, having taken on Cadence’s appearance to make Shining Armor fall in love with her and she used this to increase her magic. This causes her to defeat Celestia and Twilight and her friends go to get the Elements, but the Changlings stop them. The girls feel regret for not trusting Twilight and they apologize to her, but Twilight doesn’t blame them for anything as she secretly frees Cadence and tells her to free Shining Armor form the mind-control spell. Cadence is able to do so, snd she and Shining Armor use they’re love and combined magic to banish away the Changlings. The wedding commences with Twilight organizing everything and she is again made the best mare. She also learns one of the reasons why Cadence married Shining Armor; to gain her as a sister. Twilight sings as the reception and she and her brother have one more sibling moment before Shining Armor and Cadence leave for their honeymoon.
Sometime later, Twilight goes to Canterlot to take a test, but she ;learns that she must instead go to the recently-returned Crystal Empire to learn why it has returned. She is also told that she, and she alone must save the Crystal Empire. Twilight and her friends head there and meet with Shining Armor before they are attacked by the evil King Sombra, the former ruler of the Crystal Empire. The girls get safely to the Empire, but Shining Armor has his magic blocked. They meet with Cadence, who is exhausted from using her magic to protect the Empire for days with no rest. Twilight and her friends go out to find out what happened to the Empire, and they find that all the Crystal Ponies are depressed and have amnesia. They soon learn about the Crystal Heart Fair, which was used to spread love throughout the empire, The girls organize a fair, but they soon discover that the Fair was to power the crystal Heart relic, which the ponies don’t have. With Cadence growing weaker by the minute, Twilight goes to find the Crystal Heart with Spike going after her.
Twilight finds that the Crystal Heart is in the palace and she unlocks a secret chamber in the throne room. She finds a door but when she goes through it, she finds herself back in Canterlot where Celestia tells her that she failed and that she is dismissed as her apprentice. Twilight is snapped out of this by Spike, and Twilight realizes that the door causes an illusion of a pony greatest fear, Spike has a vision of Twilight abandoning him, but she assures him that she would never do that and she uses a spell to make the door safe to pass. She invites Spike to come along, having been reluctant initially to allow him to come. She soon manages to find the Crystal Heart, but Sombra uses a spell to trap her. She knocks the Crystal heart to Spike and despite having been told that only she can save the Empire, she tells Spike to take the Crystal heart and to save the Empire. He goes and he and Cadence have the Crystal Ponies unite and banish away Sombra for good. The Empire is fully restored and Sombra’s evil is undone and while she is glad, Twilight fears that Celestia will now reject her as she wasn’t the one who saved the Empire. But Celestia points out that it was her who told Spike to go on and that she sacrificed what she believed was her place as Celestia’s student in order to save everypony else. Having realized the meaning of self-sacrifice, Twilight passes the test.
Later as Twilight is practicing magic tricks to meet with some higer-up ponies, Trixie form “Boast Busters” returns and she challenges Twilight to a Magic Duel. Trixie, having appeared to have grown stronger, wins and she banishes Twilight from Ponyville while trapping the rest of the ponies into becoming her slaves. Twilight retreats to Everfree Forest and she meets with her friend Zecora, a wise zebra, who teaches her more about magic. Twilight is soon met by Fluttershy ,who escaped Ponyville and she tells Twilight about what Trixie is doing to the town. Trixie has the Alicorn Amulet, a powerful artifact that slowly corrupts the user. Twilight goes to challenge Trixie again, tricking her into believing that she has a stronger amulet and she and her friends use theater tricks to make the spells appear real. Trixie removed the Alicorn Amulet, which allows Rainbow Dash to grab it and hand to Zecora and Twilight reveals that her own amulet is a doorstop and it was all an act. Trixie appears to reform, but she is still boastful as she again leaves Ponyville while Twilight performs for the higher-up ponies.
Later, Celestia orders the six friends to reform Discord and they free him with the Elements. Fluttershy is, shockingly, able to reform Discord, but Celestia leaves the Elements with Twilight just in case he turns evil again.

THIRD PERSON: (Takes place during "Return of Harmony, P2")
It was over. There was no hope left. She had believed that they could have saved Equestria, the Princess had been counting on them. But not Twilight had to face facts, Discord had one. Her friends, once caring and always by her side, had abandoned her and betrayed their Elemtent. There was no honesty, laughter, kindness, generosity, or loyalty. There was no friendship, and therefore there was no magic. There was no hope. There was nothing but chaos.
Only one teardrop escaped her as the now gray unicorn walked through the chaotic street of Ponyville. She paid the floating houses, checker boarder road, or long-legged bunnies any mind, she simply didn't care anymore. Why should she? Her friends were gone and the Elements had failed. She could do nothing to end the chaos. She should have stayed in Canterlot, she should have kept her head buried in her 'dusty old books'. Books couldn't;t betray her, they couldn't say and do harmful things to her, and they couldn't end up ripping her heart out int he end. She had truly believed for so long now that magic was strong, that it was the greatest magic of all and that she was nothing without it. And she had been right, she was nothing without her friends, She was nothing.
She was going to leave Ponyville and toss away her 'big crown thingy', not wanting to stay and see the downfall of her home continue. Maybe she would just leave Equestria all together, she didn't want to see Discord do anything else and she didn't want to be hurt anymore. She would get Spike and go, he was the only one who hadn't hurt her. He was her only true friend left. She could no nothing for her other friends... but why was a part of her refusing to believe it? Why was that tiny part of her screaming at her to not give up? That there was a way to save her friends and Equestria? Could she really just leave it all behind? Could she really go back to that lonely life that she had left behind so long ago? Was she really ready to let go of the magic of friendship?
She could do nothing. There was nothing left. Nothing... right?
