Let's talk about fate!

Recommended Posts

Alright, so i have a pretty simple theory:
My theory is that Trixie, Sunset Shimmer, Starlight Glimmer, Moondancer and any other unicorns that Twilight personally helped in the show didn't meet her through sheer coincidence: it was all fate.

We know by now that fate plays at least some sort of role in MLP's storyline - even if it isn't a role as major as it would play in other shows where fate is a factor in the story - so it could easily be that Twilight was always ment to meet these characters, and that they were always ment to meet her.

 

That applies to Trixie and Starlight because, even if they didn't anything they did and just moved on to have normal lifes(as normal as one's life can get living in a world like Equestria, which is just loaded with weird stuff), they would still be highly likely to meet Twilight since, ever since Twi gained the map - an event that isn't affected by either of the two characters - the fact that at any moment of any day Twilight could be sent to any part of Equestria has been present. It could take two days or two years, she would end up bumping into them eventually.

 

Then there's Sunset, who met Twilight as a consequence of her own choices, in this case of course she would run into Twilight simply because of Sunset's personality: she's driven and determined and - especially before her redemption - doesn't take "No" as an awnser, she would never just accept the fact that she's no longer Celestia's disciple, under any circumstance Sunset would have tried to retaliate in one way or another, and no matter wether she succeeded or not she'd end up meeting Twilight. The only way for these two to not meet would be if either of them never existed or if Sunset never stopped being Celetia's apprentice.

 

Which finally brings us to Moondancer, who met Twilight because Twilight deliberately wanted to meet her, which again was inevitable: Twilight was feeling guilty for forgetting about her and, being who she is, she wouldn't just "leave it be", Twilight would try to make up for it in some fashion and - again- would inevitably end up meeting her.

 

It could also all be some big coincidence, but the whole fate thing is still possible.

So, what do you think? do you agree, do you not agree? anything that i missed or that you would like to add? also, this is my first time posting a topic about the show, so hooray to that i guess.  :squee:

I'd go beyond that and say that pretty much everything in Equestria is guided by fate. We've seen just how important Rainbow Dash's Rainboom was in giving the Mane 6 their Cutie Marks, but the happy coincidences don't stop there. For instance, what are the odds that Nightmare Moon would return just as Twilight and her future friends are around? Over a span of a thousand years it seems unlikely that Celestia knew what date she'd have to banish her sister to get that result, or that Luna chose the moment she became evil just so this would work out the way it did.

 

The same thing goes for reforming Discord. If they hadn't done so, they would not have beaten Tirek...although Tirek's rise to power would also have been slowed without Discord. The Crystal Empire returned just in time for Cadance and Shining Armor to take up residence there, which they would not have done if Chrysalis had won.

 

Lastly, the very fact the Cutie Marks exist suggest that each pony has a well-defined destiny considering it's unlikely they'll go against their Cutie Marks, thus guaranteeing they'll live up to what it represents. Destiny magic seems like the kind of thing only wizards like Star Swirl the Bearded would screw around with. I still believe that it wasn't Celestia who made Twilight an alicorn, but that she just some kind of 'ascension interrupt' spell so she can talk to the pony who is ascending...and possibly stop it if that pony is not to her liking. Celestia has screwed with magic she shouldn't touch before, if the Reflections arc is anything to go by.

If Discord was not a fool he would have sent Tirek back to tartarus in this scene or he could trap him while joining him. >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cinXeGnhL4&list=PLfJpfTZK5SWAYkDYaPN3rW7q3RjZzlzl0&index=42

I don't think that it was fate that Twilight meet any of them.

Unlike how all of the mane 6 got their cutie marks due to the sonic rainboom.
