Truth to told, that would be one of the best plot twists in MLP if it turned out to be true. Though to be fair, much like Vader I doubt the ‘evil Alicorn’ would recognize Sunny initially. After all, Vader didn’t recognize Luke as his son until after the events of the original Star Wars film. So even if she were Sunny’s mother chances are she may not recognize Sunny as such, at least not initially.
I am glad I am not the only one who is confused about what happened to Sunny’s mother. I have heard rumors that Sunny’s mother might be an Alicorn herself, similar to Princess Cadence with Shining Armor. If this is the case, it could explain why Sunny was the pony who got those powers. As to why she didn’t have her powers at birth a la Flurry Heart, well, that could be explained through the fact that nopony had magic at that time, and as such her Alicorn abilities wouldn’t manifest until later.
I had a rather dark headcanon awhile ago that Sunny’s mother couldn’t bare the ostracization by the community of being married to Argyle so she left. And to this day no one knows where she is.
For that matter, what about Sunny’s mother? No mention of her so far at all, as if she never even had one. Weird. Yeah we can assume she’s dead, but if that’s the case why don’t they just say so? Sunny had a great relationship with her dad but it’s like her mom is estranged, or did some horrible thing and went to pony prison and nopony speaks of her.
This is how I would have done it: instead of showing the current cast of characters being transformed into fillies, show flashback scenes of their childhood. I still want to learn more about Sunny’s dad Argyle, and I think learning more about the parents of Pipp, Zipp, Izzy, and Hitch would also be fascinating as well. It could build upon all of the characters significantly.
Then again, Filly Sunny is really adorable. Especially when she’s with her dad.
Sunny’s glitter is OP, please nerf! Nah, just kiddin’. ;-D
You have the right attitude as usual, good sir. The thing with MLP is it’s so decentralized that it’s pointless to bicker about what’s canon and what’s not. It’d be naive to think that G5 is always going to play by G4 rules.
It is kinda neat learning how Alicorn magic works through Sunny. Seems that a lot of it has to do with having a complete sense of self: The swag she gets from Pipp, the bravery from Zipp, the inspiration from Izzy, the compassion from Hitch, and her belief in herself, among other things, coming together all at once at the right time.
I’m guessing the glitter side effect is caused by Izzy’s influence.
I can’t quite put my finger on it, I just know that the glitter is a metaphor for something. Izzy uses it to “uni-cycle” or make things new. Maybe it’s a bi-product of Sunny making new magic… Or maybe I’m stretching it here! Hehe.
