>the first pegasi queen might be Cozy Glow
>At least the documented name that Pipp knows is not Cozy Glow. The name of the first queen sounded in ASMR “Princess For A Day” from the Calm application. This is the official record. The name of the first queen is Peggy Zephyrina (spelling may be misspelled, I write in a different language).
Very interesting, this is lore that is needed. “Peggy Zephyrina”? So that explains the name Zephyr Heights, but then it means that the mountain peak that the castle rested on, C3 showed this quite clearly - had another name before the first pegasi queen. And it is possible that she was the first “guardian” of the Pegasus Crystal which, according to the book, “may have fallen from the shooting star” - although C2 has confirmed that it was Twilight Sparkle who created the crystals.
So the Cozy Glow option is now deleted. Sad, but it has been noted that the MYM team has squandered so many opportunities - especially in the first episode, the trailer in advance suggests that Opaline was behind the runaway magic. Which turned out to be completely without logic, how could the Earth Pony Magi go berserk and just come under control so easily? This is one of many logical short circuits in MYM, TYT and IDW are better in comparison. Many look towards TYT as seen with the Marestream to more easily understand what is witnessed on a logical basis.
I’m not sure if it’s possible to connect the G4 lore with G5 more, it seems that the MYM team couldn’t decide and pretended to have split in two; minimal G4 connection over a long period of time, several thousand years; or direct transfer from G4 to G5 down to just a few centuries. Also, there is a bit too much G3 in the G5, most of the episodes in C2 were weak, with few and scattered highlights, which then picked up in the last two episodes. C1 produced a ton of controversy surrounding magic, and C3 seemed confusing for actual lore building. TYT is more G4-imprinted despite its character, possibly because it was not age-restricted in contrast to MYM.
This cannot continue. MYM must be returned to G4 standard, or the Alternative Universe rule must be inserted on MYM and the G5. Then G5 will be to G4 as G1 was to G4, an alternate past.
At the very least, the mystery of Twilight Sparkle’s connection to the Wishing Star is encouraging - as we’ve seen, Zipp was never told the story of Wishentine by her mother. She found out about the unusual snowfall by studying the book about the unicorns, and concluded that it was a spell meant to invoke winter weather. And this revealed that the Winter Wishday is not in the same time period as Christmas in our world. This in itself is very good, and the idea of the Wishing Tree taken from the G1 comics and G1 Twilight is inspiring.
But as the book itself testifies; the MYM team needs to decide whether to continue with the G4 lore or not.
