• Discussion: What Do You Think the Show Would Be Like Without Spike?

    Years ago during a magic exam in Canterlot, Twilight Sparkle accidentally exploded and hatched an egg with a dragon inside.  Ever since then, they have been together. She plays an almost motherly role to the dragon.

    Imagine for a moment, that this never actually happened.  Twilight Sparkle never grew up with Spike at her side, and while the timeline still sends her to Ponyville, he was never there to help guide her to where she is today.

    How do you think the show would play out in this case? What would a Spikeless Friendship is Magic be like?

    Thanks to Justin for the idea!
