"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

Sorry Twi, you're more of a figurehead than a real governmental power.

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!

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz: Actually Twilight, she's right. She does have more authority than you do here.
Emoticon - Twilight Sparkle Angry :iconsaysplz: How? Why?! I thought my title meant something!
:iconcelestialolplz: :iconsaysplz: Actually, you're only a junior princess. We all just call you "Princess Twilight" because we're all lazy.
:Twilight Sparkle Meme Icon: :iconsaysplz: S-so what you're saying is this whole thing has been nothing but a giant lie?!
:iconcelestia=3plz: :iconsaysplz: Pretty much, but hey! On the bright side, you don't have any official responsibilities or dedications to uphold.
MLP Emote Twilight Sparkle Envy Covet Spite 
Twilight Sparkle (hmm...) #2 plz :iconsaysplz: I hope Sunset Shimmer needs a roommate.
