<=Part 15Part 17
So here's a minor thing in Equestria Girls that I haven't heard anyone harp on: the Element of Magic has changed.
Gone are the sweeping sides and the turquoise facets. It's not a big deal. I mean, new princess, new look. I'd just like to know why it changed and where it came from since Twilight wasn't wearing it when she made her return in Magical Mystery Cure
. I would find it hilarious if season 4 featured the old Element of Magic look, but I have a feeling the staff will maintain this regardless of Equestria Girls' continuity.
Now, a few people have asked if this comic is anti-Twilacorn. Let me clarify that it is not.
Though I have uncertainties about where the show is headed, I don't consider Twilight's ascension to be a death bell for the show. I do, however, think it'd be in-character for her to struggle with uncertainty and even fear about what this new life demands. She tried to touch on that in the show before Celestia said, "There'll be time for that later." Well, I'm looking forward to later.
Some have called for Twilight to lose her wings, but I think that would be an even worse step. It would render the season 3 finale a truly empty toy gimmick and shut the door on new potential. Ultimately, we can only wait and see how season 4 will address this new direction.
In the meantime, this comic helps me process the issue and what I'd like to see. Thanks to everyone who favorites, comments, and shares with the brony community.
Now, on to page 17. I think I left it somewhere in the sofa cushions!Update
