>>25377970 if this was true, as well as the "reformed to be twilight's student" thing, would Twilight have the adult or filly as her student? An easy reform for her would be to make her Twilight's student before she goes power-hungry, erasing the Glimmer we know from ever existing.
or you can have a multiverse theory thing where unreformed Glimmer remains in universe, but little Glimmer is raised from birth to defeat her with friendship and love, like some sort of supersoldier.
>>25378035 Well, Twilight deiciding to accept filly Starlight as her future student would create a parallel universe where she that is what happened, so if Starlight simply came back to her own version of the future she would technically still exist, this would also end the loop, think Zelda timeline where we had two timelines for Oot, one with adult Link, after defeating Ganon, coming back to his own separate timeline as a kid (making the whole future adventure kinda of pointless), and one where he remained at the alternative, destroyed future as an adult and moved on with his life
>>25378125 >>25378145 He is right though, its annoying how retarded teenagers are always expecting "muh lore" and "muh fantasy world" from this show, even if the world building is good it doesn't mean the writting has it as priority, it was always message/slice of life > World building
>>25378175 Unless she came back to her own, separate timeline, if Glimmer is from he future she didn't came from the current timeline's future, but from a parallel universe's future and she thinks she is still on the same universe (which she isn't), if she came back to her own future where she originally came from (which will still exist as its own thing, like two separate trainloads) she will continue to exist while filly Glimmer will now be raised by Twilight, its almost like she being destined to have a change of hearts already being the reason why the good future even exists, along with the parallel universe and the bad future
>>25378370 I believe there is a place for everything out there, i actually highly consider scientific proofs to be the defining factors (the cherry on top) of any theory, but right now, none of the scientific theories we have are any more likely to be real than any of the religions or other non-scientific theories, Equestria still has a good chance to be somehow real in the after life since there is no way to know what happens to our conscience when we die
>>25378160 Most likely the time travel would be to remove cutie marks and fuck up the mane 6 from ever getting them. Didn't you see that panel with twilight talking about how she recieved her cutie mark and that starlight was in the background?
I'm not sure how the whole "I'm their daughter from the future," thing is going to fit in this most likely scenario. And even if they do, that is really stupid desu senpai.
>>25378160 I don't think the writters are this smart man >There is a parallel universe where this is real >There is a parallel universe where Sunset Shimmer was the protagonist of FiM while Twilight was the protagonist of EQG >There is a parallel universe where bronies never existed and Lauren remained at the show until the end, writting it with no limitations from Hasbro just imagine
>>25378647 Yes, but thats partially because the expectations from G4 were pretty lower than what we got, i mean, if someone told you 6-7 years ago that My Little Pony would be a well written cartoon with a interesting world would you believe them? The surprise factor kinda of helped with that, nobody was expecting the show to be even watchable in the first place, they expected Thomas and Barney 2.0.There are some people who enjoy looking for ways to explain how that world works, what makes it tick, this is what brought so many people, not the fantasy world itself, but the curiosity towards it, they wanted to know the details, and from that a lot of fan fiction and headcanons were born, but this doesn't mean the show was ever focused on that, every time characters went to new places and met new people it was for a reason, the morals and the slice of life factor are still the biggest focus on this show, since teaching kids about the morals is what the show is supposed to be about in the first place, world building is just a secondary thing that some people really seem to enjoy, i mean just look at how much people love shit like Adventure Time or Gravity Falls for the same reason, people love deepest lore, but they love trying to discover deepest lore for themselves even more
If altering the timestream is enough to leave Twilight stuck in some kind of paradoxial loop (see EqG), odds are unfucking it is going to have some very interesting effects on the origin of the "glitch".
After all, the simplest way to prevent Glimmer from altering the timestream might well be Glimmer retroactively not existing to begin with. Or at least, a large portion of what would have become Glimmer- if Twilight ends up going back to fix the whole thing and ends up nudging her (after all, to go back to the original Rainboom is when they'd all be in childhood), then changing STARLIGHT's future is a possible option.
Coming back to a "normal" future in which Starlight became Twilight's Royal Student is the only alteration would work too.
>>25378811 yeah, its kinda like if the idea of future Starlight even going back to the past in the first place already altered the universe, the fact that Twilight was destined to, at some point in time, stop Starlight from fucking the timeline was already enough to fix the timeline early on and allow the good timeline to exist in the first place
>>25377970 I'm afraid this theory is simply too good to be true. It would also imply that Starlight has used time travel magic before to travel to the past, but right now it seems that she discovered time travel magic only after being defeated by the Mane 6. Why would she travel to the past to create an equality town? It doesn't make much sense. I really want this theory to be true, but it's simply too deep and complex for this show.
