I don't know what I am anymore. by RedApropos I don't know what I am anymore. by RedApropos
I call it, I call it, I call it. This is gonna be a thing in the show. Maybe not so dark or grim, but I BET THIS IS GONNA BE A THING!

Really though, enough sad/depressing/emotional ponies for now.

You can expect more adorable cuteness in the future. :3

------------EDIT-------------------

There seems to be some, uh... confusion regarding what this is about.
Allow me to explain:

Basically, a lot has happened in Twilight's life since the thousandth anniversary of the Summer Sun Celebration

She discovered she was an Element of Harmony, "Magic," learned she has the ability to perform the darkest of magic, was crowned a princess, and became an immortal being, an Alicorn.

And through it all, she has experienced and learned so much, with the love and support of her friends.

Though some of the changes she's gone through; mentally, spiritually, and even physically, has led Twilight concerned that, well, she isn't the little bookworm of a unicorn she once was.

The Elements, the Alicorn transformation, the dark magic, the power and authority she's inherited.

It's gone so far, she doesn't know what she is anymore.

--------------UPDATE---------------

Got rid of the unnecessary caption, and centered it to be a wallpaper.

I'm not worried. So long as she has Spike, she will always have a moral compass. He has been and always will be the one to make her come around.

She either has pinkeye or is infected with Las Plagas.  If it's the latter, i wonder what an immortal magical Los Ganados would be like.

I actually don't think Twi is immortal now... I think that only Natrual Alicorns are immortal. I mean, look at Princess Cadance. Celestia gave her her wings (or horn IDK which it was). It looks like she grows like any odinary pony while for Alicorns it takes much longer. O.O

this is a good piece. It has potential for a great story, and your description box makes a very solid point. However, I have read on mlpforums.com that Meghan McCarthy has confirmed that Twilight will not outlive her friends, so the whole "twilight being immortal" thing that everyone seems to think is not true. Not trolling, just letting you know. That small fact aside, you really are a great artist, and I do enjoy your work.

I TOTALLY want this to be a thing. It'll give Twilight more depth as a character I'm willing to bet. It'll also give the writers more to work with as far as coming up with plot scenarios.

Seconded, I want this be be a thing in the show too
Twilight questioning being an Alicorn should be adressed, maybe at the end of season 4 or maybe a villain plays on Twilight's doubts
Art wise a pretty good piece, the body proportions are just right and I like how her wings are fully out yet kept down displaying a sadness for the power she's achieved
But most of all I like that eye, I can almost see it being a plot point that as she uses dark magic one of her eyes becomes like that and can't be reversed (mostly a fanfiction plot point but the potential is still there for a real episode)

I too see the attraction for sad ponies, they bring a true juxtaposition to the otherwise colourful and lively show premise and can be really poweful
Nice work :D

:icongmanplz: Rise and shine, Miss Sparkle. Rise and...shine. It would seem that...your troubles are all that have affected you throughout your life. Time has its mysterious ways, and...well...you look like you haven't grown at all....minus the... wings...but.. time has its weird ways. So wake up, Miss Sparkle. Wake up and...smell the ashes.

Allow me to explain this: This is her darkness speaking.

Oh, I thought the dark magic was pushing itself to the surface, since becoming an alicorn would probably bring out latent power, and therefore the suppressed dark magic was seeping out. It's too dark for the show, but having that creeping corruption turning her into a villain would be freaking amazing. Then an epic quest for the remaining Mane 6 to go to Zebra and/or Griffon lands and get some kind of cure. Yeah... I might just have to make a fanfic about that

Ugh, not this again.
We've gone over it several thousand times already. Twilight Sparkle, pony, female, formerly unicorn, now alicorn, born in Canterlot, resident of Ponyville, bearer of an Element of Harmony, specifically that of Magic, student of Princess Celestia, most recently Princess of Equestria, very diligent and studious and deeply beloved by me. Now, cut that out already or I'll hit you with the Canterlot Encyclopedia, part A-H.

:iconredapropos: didn't ever mention Twilight being an Alicorn - did you not notice the glowing green eyes?? Like, the evil eyes?????

I think that's what she's talking about. Like, hey, Princess Celestia, I think I'm possessed. Yeah, not sure what's up with that, might wanna call the local news network or some shit.

Also, what in the incinerating fuck are you going on about?

CORPORATE AMERICA?

POISON THE MINDS OF OUR CHILDREN?

I wasn't aware that character development is a direct result of capitalism with the sole aim of ruining children's lives.

That's like saying Simba growing up and getting control of the fucking lion country or whatever the fuck happened is because of communism or something man I don't even know.

I hate people who compare Simba's character development with Twilicorn's. If you look at closer, you'll see that there are no similarities whatsoever.

DisneyMaster Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well the fact that it was probably a mandate from corporate America instead of the writers doing their own thing. That's why she's different from Simba. Real character development isn't forced, it flows naturally like water.
