Twilight cheats at Magical Mystery Cure by KTurtle Twilight cheats at Magical Mystery Cure by KTurtle
What if, instead of creating her own friendship magic to solve the problem of Starswirl the Bearded's unfinished spell, Twilight took the easy way out and just kept casting it until the ponies' cutie marks were on the right way round again? Well I guess Princess Celestia would be all like "TWILIGHT I AM DISAPPOINT". 'Cause that's kinda the magic equivalent of "solving" a Rubik's Cube by taking it apart with a prybar and reassembling it.

(Actually, the episode implies that the spell mixes the Elements of Harmony randomly instead of just cycling them, and there's actually a 119-to-1 chance against the spell actually putting them all the right way round at any time, but I ignored that because that would make the cartoon waaaaaaay too long!)

EDIT: Hiya, Equestria Daily!

EDIT 2: For the record, I loved "Magical Mystery Cure", and no I don't seriously think Twilight should have done what she does in this cartoon. It's just a joke, people. :}

EDIT 3: That means I DON'T wanna hear about how you thought the episode should have gone this way because it would be sooo much better than that dumb ol' "Twilight gets to grow awesome wings" ending. Keep it to yourself!

Well excuuuse her for using logic instead of going on the off-chance of "friendship" being the universal solution for everytihng.

I've been looking for a picture where I could express why I thought Rainbow Dash and Rarity's talents were changed. I've found it.

See, Rarity's initial talent was finding gemstones using a spell that she could cast wiout being taught to do so. The problem is, Applejack isn't a unicorn, so she had to go with Rarity's second talent that any species could do: dressmaking!

Rainbow Dash's initial talent is either her need for speed or being able to make a Sonic Rainboom/rainbows. Both things can be accomplished by a pegasus, which Rarity isn't, so instead Rarity used her awesome magic to control the weather, which is not only Rainbow Dash's job, but it is also the ultimate purpose of pegasi.

Therefore, the talent switch is necessary.

Dear Princess Celestia,
Who needs friendship when you're a unicorn!?
Your faithful student,
Twilight Sparkle

The only question I have about this episode is this: what sort of mess did Starswirl cause with his spell?
WorldWalker128 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014
I guess Starswirl had an assistant with common sense, too. Maybe he/she was NAMED Common Sense!
