A double theory presentation!
So as some of you might of read, I had posted up a theory know as 'that realization...' without knowing that it was a well talked about theory already. Thanks to Carsair providing me a link to one said forum, I had come up with a new theory in my head. First of them is how will Twilight not outlive her friends? Yet in the forum, it was stated that Twilight will not live pass her friends. Now of course a lot of ponies are joking around (or probably being serious) and saying that Twilight will die before her friends; giving up her alicorn status. I don't think that's going to happen. Instead, it seemed a lot of ponies seem to over look one little fact that comes straight from the show: Fluttershy is friends with Discord.
Now what does that little fact have to do with anything with Twilight being immortal and outliving her friends? Possibly a lot. If Twilight is immortal, then that means she can not die by age(She is still capable of dying though by heavy amounts of bodily damage). With that, it is possible that Discord would not want his only friend to die either since Fluttershy is the only one who has (almost) fully trusted him. With that, he proposes a deal to make her immortal. However, while Fluttershy refused this offer a few times, being a heavy believer on the flow of life, she finally gives in and agrees, but on one condition; Discord has to make her friends immortal as well, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Applejack. When she mentioned Twilight Sparkle's name, Discord explained to her that she already was one, and was going to selfishly outlive her and the rest, but Fluttershy didn't believe him.
In that instant, Discord made her and her friends immortals as well, making it so that none of them died by the natural causes of aging. They were not sure about this decision that was just pushed onto them, but as time went by, they figured that it was alright, so long as they had each other.
And thus Twilight will never outlive her friends.
As for the third theory, what defines a immortal Alicorn? In the same forum, it seems as if it makes it that not all Alicorns are immortal, once again stating that Twilight will not live pass her friends. Now if the case is that Discord actually does not interfered with their life spans, then does that mean Twilight is not immortal? On that note, what defines one Alicorn to be immortal and one not to be? Does one have to born as an Alicorn to be immortal like Celestia and Luna?
That third theory had more questions than theories, I know, but once again I want to hear you guys thoughts on these subjects, but just to make sure you understand the questions, I'll repost them again:
1) How will it be so that Twilight will not outlive her friends?
2) What defines an immortal Alicorn?
Until next time,
