So, between here and twitter, I've received some questions about the news regarding Twilight Sparkle becoming a princess- what do you know? How does it affect the book? Why, where, who, what, etc.
The short of it is, it's really not up to me to say. I understand your curiosity, etc, but it's not my place to say the things any of us involved may or may not know. First, there's contracts and the like in place. Second, you never know when things will change. Third, I just don't like spoiling things! Hasbro is the one steering the ship here, we're just passengers along for the ride.
A lot of fans are up in arms. to quote my favorite starship captain, "People can be afraid of change."
And, to quote my favorite Hawaiian PI, "Probably the only thing you can count on in life is change .... that no matter how much you wanted things to stay the same they never did, and that change itself wasn't bad. It's just that, the transitions were sometimes tricky. "
All of us just have to be patient and see where the ride takes us, and remember: it's a cartoon. HAVE FUN, dammit!
