As most of anda already know, I've telah diberi lebih than my two cents about how I feel about what Twilight berkata to Sunset Shimmer in the crater near the end of EG1 and I still stand sejak my opinion that she was out of line when she berkata that; regardless of how Sunset acted in the first movie. Over the past couple of days, when thinking about that scene, I've reflected on how I actually feel about Twilight Sparkle as a whole. So I will take this time to give my personal thoughts and feelings about Twilight Sparkle.
When I decided to watch MLP: FiM, I started from the first episode. Twilight in the beginning was an anti-social bookwork who resented the very idea of friendship. I did find that a bit annoying about her, but at the same time, she was also someone who was focused on the task at hand, which was what I could respect. She knew Nightmare Moon was coming and she needed to talk to Celestia about it. keseluruhan though, she could've been a bit lebih open.
But after the two part pilot, she became lebih open about friendship and over the course of the show, many aspects of her personality has shined through.
A great example is in "Lesson Zero," where she showed her OCD personality which I find very entertaining about her. It also shows her tendency to blow things out of proportion when she panics like assuming Celestia will banish her for forgetting to write a friendship lesson letter.
Another thing I find endearing about her is her awkwardness. It's very cute and adorable. I also like her tendency to be a bit clumsy at times and I also like how she has her flaws, like not being good at sports and not being able to fly so well after she gets her wings. It's funny to watch her clutz at things that aren't related to books, magic, and studying.
Now let's talk about her relationship with Celestia; and this is the part where my confliction with my feeling about her start to come in, as it also relates to the Sunset Shimmer issue. Obviously, Twilight has a great deal of respect for Celestia, seeing her as sort of a mother figure as well as a mentor. Twilight has proven to be a bintang student to her, as shown with her talents for magic. Sunset Shimmer was also a student of Celestia's who had great potential. The difference is that Twilight gradually earned her power, while Sunset felt it was owed to her. As a result, Sunset held some form of resentment and jealousy towards Twilight because of it. Now some can say that's selfish thinking on Sunset's part, but I personally can relate to those kind of feelings. I understand what it means to feel like anda deserve something and yet no one will give it to you; the feeling of having a bit of inferiority to someone, to have that kind of jealousy. It's understandable that Sunset would want power because she feels she deserves it. This is one of the reasons why I think Twilight was out of line when she berkata what she berkata to her in the crater.
As I berkata in the sebelumnya article, another reason, I think she was out of line is because of Celestia's past with Sunset. Knowing that Sunset had a past with Celestia and considering Twilight has so much respect for Celestia, it doesn't make sense that she would say what she said, regardless of what Sunset did.
And also, like I berkata before, the only way I'll give Twilight a slight leeway on this account is if she didn't see Sunset crying when she was transforming. Sunset did not know she would turn into a demon. I don't believe Sunset was really a monster, but Twilight automatically assumed she was just because she turned into a demon.
Which brings me to the most important reason I hate that scene; TWILIGHT IS NOT SOMEONE WHO WOULD SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT! Twilight is not the kind of person/pony that would rub salt in the wound of someone, regardless of who they are. There Sunset Shimmer was, lying in a crater, a shell of her former self with absolutely nothing and there Twilight is, standing above her, talking her down in front of the whole school! Like I berkata before, I don't care how Sunset acted, Twilight should not have done that. I know she helped her out of the crater eventually, but her talking down to Sunset just overpowers that!
Overall, when it comes to Twilight for me, I'm conflicted. On one hand, I Cinta her tendencies for OCD, and freaking out over small details and her awkwardness and flaws are endearing to watch. But when it comes to that scene......THAT SCENE....I find myself getting angry at her and virtually every time I see her on screen, whether in FiM atau EG, I am reminded of that scene which never should've happened. So while I don't necessarily hate Twilight, I'm not quite as found of her as I was before, but I still like her a bit. I really hope Hasbro follows through on my request to change that scene for the first movie, because when it comes right down to it, I really do not want to hate Twilight.
