Let's Ask Celestia by MLP-Silver-Quill Let's Ask Celestia by MLP-Silver-Quill
I'm sure that Princess Cadance's magic is absolutely wonderful to the show's target audience.

But I'm an old curmudgeon, so when I saw that she can make two ponies fall in love, I called "brainwashing!" Then again, this is Equestria; where disagreeing too much causes winter spirits to descend and freeze everybody. Kinda puts things in perspective.

Truth be told, I wanted to make a Men in Black joke in honor of the new movie (which I have not yet seen). This is the end result.

I'm still no good with weather, so the clouds come provided by :icongrendo11: and :iconjunglepony:
The Unicorn magic tutorial was generously provided by :iconpirill-poveniy:
And mustn't forget :icona01421:, whose Canterlot Castle set part of the background.

UPDATE: Now featured on Equestria Daily!

Once again I owe a lot of thanks to those who have or will favorite this piece and taken the time to comment. I've been watching the activity level shoot up in less than ten minutes, and again I am floored by Bronydom's connectivity.

And I appreciate hearing everyone's thoughts on Cadance and her magic. I have nothing against the character, but it is interesting to hear the differing views.

Nope. Kredens (Cadance's Polish nickname) is just... ending arguments and spearding love. She's not forcing ponies to love.

By magically zapping them without talking things out first. Seems pretty forceful to me.

Meanwhile back on MIB Earth, New York City:
Zed: I just got an interdimensional message from an old operative of ours: Princess Celestia. She's having a problem keeping MIB a secret and maintaining certain alien threats in Equestria and she's requesting assistance from HQ.
J: How did MIB recruit agents from another dimension? And a Princess for that matter? 
Zed: That's actually a rather.......interesting story that will have to wait for later. I'm sending you and K to Equestria via Star Speeder
J: Woohoo! We're gonna get some action with a Princess! That is if she's mostly humanoid.
K: That's gonna be a problem slick, because she isn't humanoid and she isn't any alien type that doesn't originally live on Earth.
J: Then what is her species?
K: Alicorn, Pony, or magical horse depending on how you look at it. She's very pretty in her own rights though, great hair, great figure, sweet personality too.
J:Stare

Actually...it's not making people fall in love, it's more...

Calming down a lover's qurall. I think she uses her magic to remind them what they mean to the other.

There is actually a difference, you see, with Cadence if she sees a couple that aren't working out and they have broken hearts she will repair them so they can lie in love and peace like they once did

Actually it's more like a reminder spell... For when two people are being morons... The spell forces the love to shine through... And make the people forget their petty arguments...

I thought of the same thing but my excuse is she probably just reminds ponies of positive memories and emotions rather then forces them to love eachother... but idk

I don't think she forces love between two people who don't have love for each other in the way that I think Cupid does for example, but instead helps couples either realize and acknowledge the love they've always had or get couples who have fallen out of love (after a fight or something) back into it.

I don't think Cadence forces ponies to fall in love, she just heals it.

 

Like the two arguing ponies in who knows what episode it was.  She was walking with Shining Armor and two ponies were arguing.  She used her love magic to make the two stop and get back together.

I saw something like this on Youtube (not the comic, just footage of Cadence bringing those two ponies back together). 

One of the comments said that they believe that instead of forcing them to fall in love, her magic reaches deep inside them to bring out why they fell in love or what love was already there and bringing it to the surface.

It sounds plausible...

:icondoctorwholovesthe80s:
That's what I figured too. Cadance doesn't make ponies fall in love, she takes the love that's already there and gives it a nudge. I see her as Equestria's main couples therapist.

Uh, maybe they mean that the Love Potion kind of magic (which forces ponies to love each other AND having no other personality traits) is different from what Cadence does with the Love Spell (which is derived from Crystal Pony magic, which Cadence used as a Pegasus.)
