"Everything will be okay is what some think, but is it really after all your past experiences? What if there's the bigger picture something that you do not know yourself?" I made that quote up! Who knew my first twilight drawing would be as an alicorn?

oh my, I'm touched that you appreciate my attempts at insight and parallelism

and to be frank... well, everything that brings this issue into question might (and that is a big might) be resolved in the next season,  

but the essence of the issue virtually stems from the season 3 finale vs everything right up to it and without follow up (season 4), something like this is a very likely outcome... (and it still might stay that way)

maybe in every way the Two selves are still the same pony: as in Twilight is still Twilight, but the specter-like "past self" not only lacks a body, but is entirely alone: all the memories and knowledge but no one to talk to, not even the original and is forced to watch what is happening without experiencing it and is stuck as how she was right before the transformation happened

thus she is now forced to watch what is happening not through an alicorn's eyes, but a unicorn's eyes, yet they are still her eyes none the less, so this brings an unsettling question: if they are both the same pony... why is the physical one just going along with what is happening?

why are things suddenly going so fast? why is no one asking questions? and why is the original so keen to just accept this almost out of no where hierarchy of princess vs every pony else? why are her friends just bowing to her like it is nothing? WHY?

and isnt the more important question not about her apprenticeship to Celestia, but how do her friends fit into this? sure both are important to her, but is being Celestia's protege really more important than her Friendships ? Or is being Celestia's protege more important to THE ORIGINAL than her friendships...? 

Twilight should know better than anypony how little life Celestia gets to have compared to how much living Twilight has had with her friends because of her position as a princess... so why is the original so nonchalant about this princess position and what it might force her to do in spite of her friends that are the reason she's gotten so far... even through the entire coronation, as if nothing can possibly be wrong...?

Twilight should know that writing is nothing like living and playing or even working together... especially concerning Cadence and Shining armor and why she doesnt get to see them save for mostly business reasons...

So why isn't the original taking this into consideration? Don't tell me that this socially accepted but still very real divide is something she wanted...

Wait...Are they still the same pony then...?         

(how was that for brain food...?   cX   )

Yeah, the big picture is the essence of the issue... as if Twilight is wandering blindly through it...

this pic makes me tempted to think that once the alicorn magic took effect, there was a split: or rather 2 came from 1

the first is the physical one, the one with the wings

the second is a manifestation of her past self up until that moment, one that is watching with sad detachment how the... "present" (or original) self is carrying on just as carelessly as they both did before the split...

and the past self quite clearly senses trouble from where things are going, and is sad that she was led in to it, just like her "current" self is still being led into it...

sounds like a fan fiction manifesting around the brony slpit on the issue...

Dude, DUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE,  :holycrap:  I'm honestly just tripping on your comment. I basically had a basis to what my drawing meant, but you took it to a REALLY deeper meaning! and I'm just sitting there  going     Freak Out - dhakdhklhalkdaklj!!! and just tripping to your explanation of my drawing.   

Long story short,  you really outdid yourself.
