It's called a... I don't actually know, but his avatar is designed to cycle through several pictures. I also have no idea how this works, I think it's some kind of web service.

Anxiously awaiting chance to see the final episodes. I'll get to see one tomorrow after school and the last Tuesday night if I'm lucky. All of the high ratings and spoiler tags around here are making me want to watch it all the more.

As a note, I've finally jumped on the avatar bandwagon (which must be extremely long and excessively slow if I can still jump on it). Just a cropped image of Twilight that I glitchified via the use of wordpad. I think I'll do more of that. It's fun and potentially awesome

Post  Sean Mirrsen on Mon Apr 23, 2012 10:23 pm

There's been an interesting line of discussion over at the GitP forums, which led me to expand a little on my personal interpretation of Equestrian history.

Summing the resulting interpretation up:

Alicorns are not intrinsically immortal, they are more magically capable and combine the advantages of pegasi and unicorns, but that's it. All alicorns are royalty, and likely female, as exemplified by the in-universe term for "alicorn" being "Princess".
During Discord's first reign, there were six unicorn/alicorn friends, among them Princesses Luna and Celestia, and possibly Starswirl the Bearded, or a relative/apprentice thereof. Their friendship was strong enough, and their magic powerful enough, that when they decided to confront Discord and were mocked and punished in return, they each called into being/activated a powerful magical artifact borne of nature itself, becoming the first Bearers of the Elements of Harmony. Starswirl (or his apprentice) received the Element of Magic, Celestia received Generosity, Luna received Loyalty. Discord attempted to break the link between the Elements and the Bearers, only to be stopped by Celestia and Luna, who defiantly resisted him. At some point, perhaps as a last resort, Discord presented Luna with a horrible choice - someone dear to her (lover? sibling/friend? parent?), in exchange for her Element and the fate of the whole of Equestria. Luna chose to protect Equestria, allowing everyone to defeat Discord, but suffering a tragic loss. This caused a crack in her link to the Element of Loyalty, as she was forced to betray someone she likely swore to protect to save the others. As time went on, she became resentful of those she chose to protect, and corrupted herself, becoming Nightmare Moon. The five remaining Elements were not enough to purify her. In the ensuing battle to somehow quell, capture and contain Nightmare Moon, who was a lot more powerful at that time, four Element Bearers were one way or another injured, rendered incapable of fighting, perhaps even killed. Celestia alone remained, and somehow managed to contain Luna, for a limited time. In that time, the surviving Element Bearers (likely primarily the Magic bearer) came up with one last contingency plan. The Element of Generosity works not only for giving gifts, but also receiving that which is given as a gift. The four Bearers willingly gave up their Spirits of Harmony so that Celestia could use them with her Element of Generosity, powering an epic spell that sealed Luna away inside the celestial body she controlled, with the four Spirits of Harmony sealing themselves along with her, acting as guardians. Laughter, Kindness, Honesty and Magic became the four stars that surrounded the Moon, keeping Nightmare Moon sealed until such a time came when six new Bearers could once again come together and wield the Elements to purify Luna. These "stars" did indeed aid Nightmare Moon's escape, and she was aware of these signs as the spell was explained to her (or, in front of her) as it was being prepared and cast. The Spirit of Generosity itself was also spent, but the energy of the five spirits combined was such that Celestia was overcharged on natural magic, gaining incredibly prolonged life, at the cost of the others who gave theirs. The 1000-year period was likely chosen arbitrarily, but may have been retconned into the history books as the "nearest occasion". Perhaps the Elements took time to reinstate themselves once all of their Bearers lost their links to them, and that was the reason for the arbitrary limit. In any case, that is how it was, or at least how it currently looks in my head.

Opinions?

Oh, and - >Wall of Text Warning<

Alicorns are not intrinsically immortal

No one's witnessed or recorded the death of one, and they appear to have lived for a damn long time.

That qualifies for at least having a lot of spare time with a long lifespan.

Instant 1 hour procrastination device, use with reckless abandon.

We honestly have no proof of just how long normal ponies last, either. They might be as short-lived as real-life horses. They might be as longevitous as humans. They might be somewhere in the middle. They might outlive us by hundreds or thousands of years. They might only survive for split seconds of our understanding of time, and the show is demonstrating their lives at the pace they understand and which we can identify with.

Hence the hundreds of years longer lifespan than us option.

The whole "ponyville is hundreds of years old" line. In which case, Granny (and ponyville) could be somewhat less than a hundred (either human lifespans which seems most likely, or horse ones).

Welp, that certainly proves ponies can be very very old.

And that any relationship between a human and pony would be almost a Mayfly December romance...

I find it easier to chalk up as a continuity error, but whatev~ There's nothing saying ponies can't live ridiculously long times.

Interesting poll on ED:



Seems about right. I'd put Becoming Popular a bit higher though.

Firstly, I would point out that there is such a thing as hyperbole (with regards to the ponies living hundreds of years), and that it is all too possible Twilight is using such in that regard.

Secondly, whoever translates this gets a free cookie.

Google Translate doesn't do the ancient languages that well. Partly because English doesn't equalise with them that well.
