The Magic of Flying Backwards by zoidledoidle The Magic of Flying Backwards by zoidledoidle
It's much more complex than you think...

---

So... Twilicorn. I'll get used to it.

The Derpinator is back! *knocksonwood* Hopefully she'll stick around, and this isn't a goodbye. I seriously could not be happier about that. It was so great of DHX to bring her back. I'm still trying to figure out why people hate this episode so much. I'll admit, when I first watched it with some of my friends, I didn't really like it all that much. But going back and re listening to the songs and paying closer attention I thought that it looked like they put a lot of time and effort into making this episode great. Especially the Twilicorn scene. That part was just so moving, I personally loved it. And Celestia sang for the first time! She's got a great set of lungs! "Destinyyyyyyyy~" /shot And technically, this Twilicorn story is supposed to be a three-parter with the next two episodes coming next season. Looks like I'm gonna hafta sit here for the next six months making fan stuff, like the rest of the fandom. Can't wait to see what we can come up with!

Anywho, here's my little tribute to the end of the third season. Now I get to look forward to just Hetalia every weekend. I'm gonna miss episodes longer than 4-5 minutes long. *sigh* Oh well, time for some patriotism.
U.S.A.!

Derpy teaching Twilight how to fly? This HAS to be in Season 4... IT NEEDS TO BE IN SEASON 4 (we'll all die laughing)

There are two reasons I can think of why people where angry about Twilicorn. one is that is was opposed by the creator, but it went through anyways, and the other reason is that the episode seemed like an end series scene.

P.S. cant wait till next year! that is when the next season come out

There is a reason you didn't like it the first time you watched it...

The ears look a bit off to me, but otherwise I like it.

Because the episode was very flawed.

The ears are wider than those in the show. If that's your style it's fine, but it's not quite how they look in the show.

Most of it. [link] Basically it was very rushed, it made no sense, it's plot was poorly structured, and it wasted several story elements on a bad episode.

Derpy wrote the book on flying backwards, so she wrote the book "On Flying Backwards".

It's the first thing I copied when my PS3 finally let me do this...

:iconderpy-hooves: It must be great to be an alicorn. You can use your magic to hold up the book. When I was learning to fly, my copy fell through the cloud house floor and I chased after it, all the way right into the ground. And when I woke up, everything tasted like a hospital.

If you look carefully during the last scenes of the episode, you can see some glittering appear on Twilight's mane.

Glad you were able to catch this detail.

To be honest, I didn't see that at all, I just thought I'd add in the sparkles for affect.
But I went back and re-watched those scenes, I see what you mean!

My headcanon is whenever Derpy's not there, she's teaching "Tactical Erratic Flying Patterns" and "Advanced Muffinology - Extremely Baked!" at Pony University.
