Power of Appreciation by bobthedalek Power of Appreciation by bobthedalek
"You don't run Ponyville, Twilight"
"WELL I MIGHT AS WELL!!!"

Six years drawing ponies...first time drawing Mayor Mare. Honestly, I think she'd quite an underused character, and a very nice design too :)

I'm taking a rest this week to try and get back to some sort of 'normal', so don't expect anything till next Saturday. I'll admit, I'm quite looking forward to the next episode! ;)

So I guess checks and balances doesn't exist in Equestria? I guess the Season 8 premiere kinda implied it. :P

It was then, thou not very noticeable then, that Twilight had unknowingly started THE Revolution.

To be fair, I'm pretty sure "Princess" outranks "Mayor." :XD:

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Twilight has no power until both Celestia and Luna either die or abdicate and even then, the laws she proposes would have to be approved by her parliament. Is what I'm saying accurate?

I don't know, but typically when there's crisis like the Season 4 Finale and "The Movie," the power goes to Twilight when Celestia, Luna, and Cadence are out of commission.

Cadence is the ruler of the Crystal Empire, not Equestria, no?

You have no idea how much I would love for something like this to happen in the show just once.
Twilight using her "princess powers" for something, anything... not for her own merit but for anything worthy, really

I don't think Mayor Mare shouldn't be surprised. I mean, Ponyville has a holiday and/or festival every other Wednesday for Celestia's sake!

Au contraire, mon amie. Ponyville was founded by royal permission; your power is devolved from the throne. Twilight owns you.

Is this how England really is?

I suppose there is an element of truth in it...

The queen holds the power to dissolve parliament if I remember rightly, but I'm not quite sure just where her power ends. The only thing I remember is that the Houses of Parliament is the only place in the UK it's illegal for the queen to enter, due to her long gone ancestor James 1st. Can't quite remember what he did though...

Funnily enough, I remember now. He rushed in interrupted one of the parliamentary sessions. 

And to be more specific, it's the house of commons the royals are banned for, they're allowed in the house of lords.
