Twilight: Who are you? Celesta: I am The Creator - of a television show that gives hope and joy and inspiration to millions. Twilight: Then who am I? Celestia: You're the star Twilight: Was nothing real Celestia: You were real. That's what made you so good to watch.
After seeing the episodes that have aired so far, I don't think it matters that much anymore. She's still that fun, nerdy, dependable unicorn we know and love. She just has it easier when it comes to stairs next time.
I am the Princess. I created Equestria. I've been waiting for you. You have many questions, and although the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably equine. Ergo, some of my answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most irrelevant. You are here because Ponyville is about to be destroyed. Its every living inhabitant terminated, its entire existence eradicated. Denial is the most predictable of all equine responses. But, rest assured, this will be the sixth time we have destroyed it, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it. There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept. However, the relevant issue is whether or not you are ready to accept the responsibility for the death of every pony being in this world. Hope, it is the quintessential pony delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness. As I was saying, Cadence stumbled upon a solution whereby nearly ninety-nine percent of the test subjects accepted the program provided they were given a choice - even if they were only aware of it at a near-unconscious level. While this solution worked, it was fundamentally flawed, creating the otherwise contradictory systemic anomaly, that, if left unchecked, might threaten the system itself. Ergo, those who refused the program, while a minority, would constitute an escalating probability of disaster. There are two doors. The door to your right leads to the Source and the salvation of Ponyville. The door to your left leads back to the Equestria, to him... and to the end of your species. As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction: the chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you to the simple and obvious truth: he is going to die and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of Equestria. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here. The function of the Fifth Element of Harmony is now to return to the source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the prime program. After which you will be required to select from Equestria 23 individuals, 16 female, 7 male, to rebuild Ponyville. Failure to comply with this process will result in a cataclysmic system crash killing everyone connected to Equestria, which coupled with the extermination of Ponyville will ultimately result in the extinction of the entire equine race. There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept. The first Equestria I designed was quite naturally perfect. It was a work of art. Flawless. Sublime. A triumph only equaled by its monumental failure. It is interesting reading your reactions. Your five predecessors were, by design, based on a similar predication: a contingent affirmation that was meant to create a profound attachment to the rest of your species, facilitating the function of the Fifth Element . While the others experienced this in a general way, your experience is far more specific. Vis-à-vis: love. Apropos, Spike entered the Equestria to save your life at the cost of his own.Which brings us at last to the moment of truth, wherein the fundamental flaw is ultimately expressed, and the Anomaly revealed as both beginning... and end.
I think it would have been better if Shining Armor was the one that tried to save her, seeing as brotherly love is inherently stronger than friendship love, meaning that Twilight would be much more willing to risk the entire equestrian race for her brother rather than spike. Also, Spike is a wimp and cannot be compared to Trinity. But these are just my opinions.
