    Yay for ponies in spring! :D

    But...
    to be honest, I was really hoping the foal wouldn't be an alicorn. :(

    I mean, I'll give the idea a chance and all, but yeah, I'm not exactly thrilled.

    Yeah...

    Looks like they're just another (albiet more powerful species) that procreate, but Celestia and Luna artifically or by virtue of becoming the sun and moon guardians, extended their lives.

    She's so adorable though, two tone wings like her mother.

    Teaser here because the eqd link is region locked


    Is it just me or is the sound she makes rather creepy?

    Interesting implications here, should Twilight have children someday.

    Shining Armour: All-Equestria Champion of the Understatement (Twilight running him a close second)

    I only saw the animated GIF to being with, but yep, Junior definitely sounds a bit other-worldly ... and the Princess of Lurrrrv herself is looking a big haggard.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Princess McFlurry has a cutie mark under that nappy, too ...

    Why does she sound like she needs an Exorcist?

    I do hope we get at least one episode of 'soon to be parents' Shinning and Cadence before devilspawn Flurry Heart is born.

    The sound on the clip isn't finished yet, we'll be getting something better by Spring.

    The animatic code is still on it. And interestingly says "6.01" so this is the premiere?

    First up, woo-hoo! Spring! Yeah! YAY. :D

    But I think there could be more to... that aspect than meets the eye. I think it's interesting that
    Twilight seems so shocked that Flurry is an alicorn. Twi's done massive amounts of research on basically everything, so why is she shocked? Is this the first ever alicorn foal? Has no princess ever had children before, so there's no existing data? Or, more sinisterly, is there some dark prophecy about alicorn foals, like the one regarding Nightmare Moon's escape.
    Also,
    that sound you hear is half of Fimfiction exploding, now that they have to accept the possibility of alicorns being born as such. :p

    Devilspawn or not, as soon as Funko release a model of her I'm totally buying it ... well played, Hasbro, well played indeed.

    EDIT: And I'm willing to bet that there'll be a plushie of her featured on EQD tomorrow.

    When I saw the fan reaction to this
    baby alicorn
    I thought that the ponies must have accepted this. But I watched the teaser and all the characters act as if this is wrong, no one looks happy about this development.

    So I don't know why fans are just ignoring this and just assuming that writers are ignoring continuity.

    But anyway, Yay for season 6, Hooray!

    We don't know if an alicorn has ever been "born" before since no one is old enough to remember Tia or Luna having done so. Or maybe it's because Cadance was born a Pegasus and assumed it couldn't happen that way.

    There's also the case that having royal blood does not instantly mean an alicorn, as Prince Blueblood can attest in season 1.

    He would be many generations removed allowing for much interbreeding with other species, as any offspring of the two princesses would have to take another species for a partner. Or Tia adopted.

    She calls Cadance her niece, even though they aren't related.

    That still applies, everyone. Yes, even in this thread. Thanks. :) (I've done a little editing in earlier posts for this reason. No actual text changed, just some hidden.)

    Still though if this is really the season premier episode, you know something is going to go wrong as its the show's standard.

    Epic Beginning
    Slice of Life in-between.
    Epic Finale.

    In one of the books though,
    Its stated that alicorns just age slower than normal ponies

    As I may have mentioned elsewhere, if there is another Slice Of Life episode then it really should focus on Celestia and Luna.
    Alternatively, Sun Butt might actually get her own episode as a way of explaining why Cadance 2.0 is an alicorn with humongous wings.

    But...

    Meghan has specfically stated Twilight won't age any slower than her friends, Cadance is aging at a normal rate. There are two distinct kinds somehow, and if it's not a natural thing since Flurry Heart looks mortal, then it has to be magic.

    Since Luna and Celestia are pretty much the only thing keeping the entire planet alive through their control of the sun and the moon, I think its safe to assume they are different Alicorns. They're super special awesome Alicorns.
