Relax, there is nothing to worry, this will not happen, as a friend he read by Twitter of some of the people who work in the series (including Meghan McCarthy) have said very clearly that no immortality it will go into Twilight and she will never leave her friends.

A sad but interesting and moving concept. The good news is that since Twilight officially became an alicorn princess, there's been a lot of chatter and messages that she will live just as long as her friends. And if the longevity of Granny Smith and her even older Auntie Applesauce are any indication, the Mane Six all have long and full lives ahead of them. They just might not have all their teeth by then. :)

I guess the anger in the fandom over Twiley's transformation is still there, but it was clearly a marketing move by Hasbro to sell more new toys. And all its toy lines have been rebooted or revised countless times since the 80's (Transformers, GI Joe, MLP and soon a rebooted Jem and the Holograms). So cursed be the firm the Hassenfeld Brothers built in yonder Pawtucket. A thousand parasprite swarms be upon them! Rage

On a more positive note, yesterday I thought up a short fan story called "The Golden Mares" that sees the Mane Six all alive and well in their elder years, with Twilight about to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee (60 years) as Princess of Friendship. They look like Granny Smith in appearance and gather at Twiley's castle once a week for their reading circle. Rainbow Dash argues that their next book should be "Daring Do Comes Out of Retirement" whilst Fluttershy suggests "How I Made the Parasprites Nice and Not So Hungry", written by her daughter from her husband Big Mac. On the big jubilee celebration, Twiley addresses the Ponyville crowd from her balcony with the other five, now knighted as duchesses and ladies, proclaiming that of all the magic she has learned in her many years, the greatest and most powerful kind of all is the magic of friendship.

My little Granny by Nianara
This was the fun cartoon that inspired it. Just add wings to Twiley and you have The Golden Mares. :)

NO! I REFUSE TO BELIEVE SUCH CLAIMS (no matter how beautiful the art is!)

Besides, what would the Princess of FRIENDSHIP be without her best FRIENDS? Just a regular old princess, that's what!

Twilight is immortal, that means she lives forever while the rest sort of get old and die. Thats why Its horrible, she has to lose all her friends.

I know how to prevent this, here's how it goes: if celestia can turn ponies in to alicorns and there for make them immortal, then twilight can do it to, so when she realizes this would happen, she can just turn them into alicorns. TWILICORN FOREVER!!!!!!! 7

Nah I just found the implementation to be unwarranted in its context, and ultimately meaningless. 'Hate' would be an exaggeration.

The picture is an illustration of a hypothetical problem, nothing more.

You either give the Panacea to all the ponies or none at all, that's what I feel.

You read "The Great Alicorn Hunt" by any chance? It actually makes a good argument in favor of getting immortality (Ageless, not complete) for everyone.

But wait, I'm pretty sure Twilight doesn't know the longivity spell. If she did, I don't think she would cast it on herself knowing that this moment would be inevitable.
You don't even know how much I WOULDN'T do EVEN if immortality was on the table (even disregarding the fact that I would outlive my family and friends!).

What freaks me out is that the balloons on Pinkie's tombstone are clean and still floating, which either means that they are regularly changed, or the grave is new.

I'm not sure why people keep acting like it's already canon that this is inevitable. There's nothing more stopping the other Mane Five from becoming immortal than there is stopping The Doctor from getting another 12 lives.

It is trivial to rerender this image with PP and the entire graveyard("I know everypony in Ponyville!"), AJ and her family(including the next few generations), or any other combination you can think of. The motif remains unchanged until everyone ever is immortalized. Even if that would be possible, it is obviously not unproblematic.

Please do not take this image, especially given its age, as some sort of insistence upon a particular future. Allegedly, a certain staff member even went to the length of (somewhat oddly) expressing that this in particular will not happen, whatever that means.

The image is an illustration of one of the possible problems of prolonged life.
