Not that unique. She’s his big sis who he lives with and works for. Of course they love each other and look out for one another when they can but its been fleshed out pretty well by this point. Not like the early seasons where they were more up in the air.

The tradition relationships of “siblings,” or “maternal” don’t really stack up for the relationship between Spike and Twilight. It’s a unique relationship that runs the gamut between family to servant. It was beautiful in its uncertainty, and allowed us to ask questions about the justice of having a child be an employee and if Twilight really loved him or not. To write it off as “just siblings” really does not explore it to its fullest.

Honestly, its good the show went for the sibling route. What a terrible mom twilight would have been. Especially seeing as she was just a little kid herself.

Honestly, that could fit well with a lot of cannon, though with the only issue though being Spike’s as being part of Twilight’s biological family as a brother in Sparkle’s Seven.
 
@northern haste  
Indeed. I suppose the question is, when two episodes conflict, what should be viewed as canon? I have been trying to figure out a framework for the longest time though honestly I really don’t care too strongly what people believe myself.

I think I’ve seen at least one interpretation of Celestia attempting to raise Spike herself, but winding up needing Twilight’s help until she was old enough to do it herself because he’d bonded to her during the hatching.

The series couldn’t decide that and I am split myself. Honestly I am pretty drawn to Faust’s original intention for Celestia as something as a mother figure for Spike. The series went in every which way and seeing Twilight as a mother figure to Spike was something that I thought was a interesting concept. Perhaps Twilight is a sister-mom!

I understand the context behind this, but thats a really unappealing way to say “I have a child I need to raise”
