So a line in the 1st / 2nd episode of season 6, when luna and celestia see the alicorn baby
"this has never happened before, this is the first time an alicorn has been born in equestria"
So this can go 1 of 2 ways:
1) ALL ponies up until this point have had to EARN their wings, except for this baby
2) Princess luna and princess celestia were alicorns born before equestria was established as a "place"
#2 seems more plausible for this reference, as we still aren't quite sure where celestia and luna even CAME from - if the realm was named something else before this, and if there was a race of alicorns they were born from,...
but that line does leave things open for interpretation.. it would make more SENSE that sin ce there are so few alicorns, that all alicorns have to EARN their wings.
I am also noticing they are staying with their "all alicorns have to be female because men just aren't good enough" routine for little girls..
so what do YOU think? Is this baby an exception because her mother is an alicorn? Or is she simply the first "alicorn" born into equestria?
Also I guess twilight and even starlight glimmer aren't the head honchos for magic anymore - twilight gets double shamed in the magic dept hahaha..
