I've been keeping up with all the pony news, announcements, and creator comments. I'm aware that many of the items in the left column have been discredited by the creators. However, I am not going to make any edits to this image. The fact that many things have been proven wrong only strengthens my point- namely, that just because everypony believes something will happen as a direct result of a certain change, that doesn't mean it is definitely going to happen. Perhaps the next time there's a change in pony canon and everybody starts automatically making assumptions, we can look back at this image and remember that nothing is certain until it actually happens.
Seriously, for the past months, everybody who talked about the implications of Alicorn Twilight acted like at least one of the things on the left was automatic, a given that would have to happen alongside it no questions asked. All of those things are definitely possible, and a few of them would certainly spoil the show.
But honestly, I'm not going to take any of those as a given. Until today, I wasn't even ready to say that Alicorn Twilight automatically equaled Princess Twilight. It certainly fit, given what's already been established, but it definitely isn't written in stone. Not to mention the same press release that discussed Alicorn Twilight talked a bit about being a princess, and it wasn't at all like what a lot of bronies assume.
