15 (who?)
  • Mood: Approval
Remember the first time watching an MLP episode?
Remember your first smile at Pinkie's antics?
Your first cheer as Rainbow completed a stunt?
Your first squee at Fluttershy's cuteness?
Your awe at the beauty Rarity's dresses?
Your belly rumbling at the sight of Applejack's baked treats?

Do you remember seeing Twilight come to Ponyville for the first time?
I do.

She was a sight to see.
Her shock at Pinkie's antics,
her grumbling about Rainbow's stunts,
her eye-rolling at Fluttershy's cuteness,
her disgust at the beauty of Rarity's dresses,
her fleeing at the sight of Applejack's baked treats.

But she has changed so much since then.
I remember.

Nightmare Moon brought her
and the six together.
Trixie's showy magic got her
to defend her friends.
Zebra Zecora taught her
to not judge by one's looks.
Discord's nasty tricks showed her
that friendship must be kept.
Chrysalis' dirty masquerade revealed to her
to have faith in oneself.

And we have stood by her these whole three seasons,
Wanting her to keep going on, and become the best she could be.

As if we were Celestia,
looking down upon our student,
we have watched her grow.

And now our love and admiration has come to its sweet, sweet fruition.
The pony we have been watching,
has matured,
grown up,
under our watchful eye.

Our little Twilight, is now our grand princess.

And we are proud of her.

Aww, Thank you very much. :) That makes me feel really appreciated.
That's beautiful.
This sums up my feelings EXACTLY as I was watching Celestia talk to Twilight. So many tears of pride.

I know, right?
We have always known that she is special. You are right we have watched her grow you a brilliant yet clueless filly to a young mare. Celestia was right to chose her, to guide her and to teach her.

"The fate of Equestria does not rest on me making friends."
Wow... so much has happened since that first lovely two-parter. I feel like crying thinking about how much the show has grown and expanded, in a good way of course. It just feels like the show is maturing just like Twilight is. It's wonderful.
