I'm surprised Spike hasn't already eaten the entire castle! Maybe that's why they only show certain places in the castle in the show, all the other places have bite marks all over the place because of Spike!

Spoiler for "Triple Threat":





Spike may had overcame his addiction to eating the castle, but not Ember

Speaking of which, there is a somewhat popular theory going around that the castle may or may not be sentient in some way.

And just like that, Ember eating parts of the castle is a lot darker...

It came from a seed conjured up by the pillars, so technically, the castle is a crystallized plant;

Science has already disproved the theory of plant perception

Well, actually, the pillars each infused a crystal seed with their magic, and over time, these seeds became the Tree of Harmony.

Also, of course plant perception is a thing. If one plant is attacked by insects, for example, nearby plants with start producing substances to fight these insects, even if they themself are not yet under attack.
Therefore, if the castle, which is connected to the tree, which is connected to all of Equestria, senses that something is threatening the land, it´ll do what it can to procte the land.
Sure, it won´t stand up and kick some flank, but it can use the table-map-thingy to summon ponies or other magical beings, such as Spike, to certain locations.

The Tree of Harmony was created from the light of Equestria, a. k. a. the Pillars, and the seed it created, which grew into the castle, most likely needs this light to survive, just like the tree itself. Therefore, if the Tree of Harmony notices a threat, it lets the castle know, which then sends the most qualified beings in its reach to eliminate this threat. That´s basic plant immune system behavior, and if plant perception was not real, this wouldn´t work.

Also, Equestria is not our world, so I guess we can assume that not everything has to be the exact same in both worlds. I mean, in a world inhabited by magical, talking ponies, shape-shifting insects and competent political figures, is it really so unlikely that a castle, which has magically grown out of crystals formed from the piece and harmony of the realm I may add, posesses enough sentience to detect threats to its life, and then send other beings to deal with this threat?

Anyway, if the castle were a crystalized plant, this would mean that it came to be when a plant turned into a crystal, which is not the case. You see, the castle is a crystal, created by the Tree of Harmony, which got strengthened by the Elements of Harmony being returned to it after they themselves were strengthened by the Mane 6. The Tree then created the seed/box/whatever you want to call it, and when the Mane 6 used their keys, representations of their understanding of the Elements of Harmony, the box got the strength to grow into the castle.



Ok, this turned out a bit longer than intended. Anyway, thanks for reading. :)

There should have add more comedy to the My little pony show Friendship is magic.

Since this comic was posted almost a year before that video, no.

CSImadmax (who is currently missing) was a class act, she actually inspired a bunch of stuff and artists from all over the fandom.

The next day,  there were 1/4 inch thick steel Posted signs with the phrase, "Posted: No Trespassing, tourist groups will receive 1 (one) warning shot befor-- *the rest of the sign is a conglomeration of 1/4 inch to inch-and-a-half wide holes, rendering the 'sign' little more than twisted metal below the top third*
It took 5 group leaders 'losing' their megaphones or their hats before they got the message that they were unwelcome. ;)

It also took several shouts from Twilight Sparkle, who took Royal Canterlot Voice lessons from Princess Luna, to get the tourists to go away.

Personally, I miss the tree house as well, but along with her becoming an alicorn, it was a sign of growth for twilight as a princess. However, I do want to wish for 3 things in the next season
1. More development for the other mane 6 that is on par with Twilight's, like maybe another episode of daring do with rainbow dash or she confronts the harassing bullies from the cloudsdale episode, rarity getting a chance to show her fashion skills for other nobles like fancypants or even on the 2 royal pony sisters,etc, Fluttershy tries to interact with the Ursa Major, her cub and any other constellation animals with Discord "helping".
A. they used more colors shown on the outside of the tree  other than those super tiny lights hanging down and get rid of that weird crystal on top, make it look more like the tree of HARMONY and not simply crystal empire knock off with twilight's cutie mark hanging on top.
B. they have an episode dedicated to Twilight and the mane 6 trying to make it feel like not only her home, their place.
