If a story were to go on forever, interest would not be similarly immortal. A story either dies good or lives to see itself become tiresome.

If the story's eternal, it never ends so there's nothing that's left afterward.

I bailed on this when "Twilight" killed that guard, but came back in near the end after the true Twilight was revealed and recently went through the whole thing.

I'm afraid overall it was too grimdark for me, like the last few seasons of ST:DS9, but I digress.  I've also bailed on Star Mares for the same reason :(  I'm reminded of a line from an old issue of Legion of Superheroes: what was so important that was worth all that killing?

Even in the actual Doctor Who show, the removal of blocking of memories of ones personal future is brought up several times. It even happens to The Doctor the self whenever they meet another version of themself. So at least this has credence to how nobody remembers what happened.

You used the one ending that pushes all my wrong buttons. I HATE the "Nobody remembers" ending. I would have prefered the dream ending, or how about the "alternate universe" ending? Simply put: epic story, bad ending

It actually has some canon credence. Whenever The Doctor meets past versions of himself, only the one furthest in the timeline remembers what happened.

I'm just saying that "nobody remembers" has some previous evidence to give credence to it happening now.
I can still understand if you still feel the ending was weak. I for one felt that the twist that Twilight was replaced with the clone was rather weak, since I'd figured that out within the first few pages of her appearance.

Y'know, that future cannot come into being. Remember when Starlight sent Twilight to different futures? What's the one thing all those futures didn't account for? Twilight's castle and the Map. Every time she was sent to the future, it was there to keep the balance, even though it wasn't supposed to be. This story obviously takes place before the map, so the future they witnessed was one where the map never was. See, time cannot account for powerful magic.

Now that the story's over, I have questions.

Twilight goes off to fight a shapeshifter, and upon returning has inexplicably changed into a cruel tyrant. WHY did it as long as it did for everyone to suspect she was replaced by one of said shapeshifters?

It makes everyone look unrealistic idiotic that they never considered the possibility without explaining why they dismissed it. Was the Queen's link to Twilight, something no-one knew was possible, supposed to explain it?

My impression was the change was subtle and gradual. It didn't happen overnight. Things like this take time in order to be successful.

I have to point at pre-WW2 Germany as an example. The nightmare of Nazi Germany started in 1923 with Hitler's failed coup in Munich but he managed to rally people behind him by 1933. That's a period of ten years, during which he managed to turn the Germans against the various people groups that would later die in the camps. He was charismatic, a gifted talker, and knew how to play the Us Vs. Them game. The rest is history. Appeasement failed, Poland got stomped, WW2 started, and millions died.

Things only really started falling apart for him when he decided to backstab the Russians when he did.

Only problem is that Twilight ruled peacefully for over 900 years, and the change happened six years ago. Shortly after a war with Changelings.

Even if the ponies of the future didn't know what a Changeling was, Spike did. Spike has seen Changelings before and knows what they can do. And being Twilight's longest and closest best friend, Spike should've known what was happening.

Things like this aren't immediately obvious to even those closest to you. It's just too easy for us outsiders to say "Spike should've known what was happening" but that, in itself, is an unrealistic expectation because real life rarely works out that way.

Look at abusers. Not all of them are obvious, even to a victim's family and friends. They can put up a pretty good act which draws attention away from the victim's out-of-character behavior if any. I've read so many stories from families of victims who were caught completely by surprise when the abuse was discovered and sadly, it's sometimes discovered when a victim is killed. In some other cases, the family and friends will also engage in victim-blaming themselves. It's not impossible to pull the wool over the eyes of people who should know better. Real life examples exonerate Spike in this case because it doesn't always work out where things are discovered right away and Rule of Drama is in play as well. If things went perfectly where Spike discovered there was an imposter long before things got the point they did in the comic, there would be no story at all. Stories depend on us to suspend disbelief. Spike not doing so lends to realism.

We also need to remember the "changelings" in this story are Zygons. They have the same basic powers as the changelings from the show but judging from Chrysalis's performance in A Canterlot Wedding, changelings can't copy memories. I'd go so far as to say they can't copy mannerisms either, something else a Zygon can. The ability to copy mannerisms and memories in addition to appearance is what makes Zygons more dangerous. In the 50th Anniversary movie of Doctor Who, a Zygon impersonated Queen Elizabeth and when the Doctor was presented with both, he couldn't tell which was the imposter because the fake also had Elizabeth's memories and mannerisms.

If you replaced Chrysalis and the changelings with Zygons in A Canterlot Wedding, they would've been far more successful at pulling off Chrysalis's plan because their copy ability is more absolute. A Zygon never would've slipped up as badly as Chrysalis did when looking at the two-parter in hindsight and stacking her kind up against Zygons.

Nopony knew that much about Cadance except Twilight. And she saw immediately that something was wrong.

And the Zygon Queen didn't really try to convince any of Twilight's friends that she was real. She was rude, condescending and straight up called Rarity ugly. 



And yes, they are called Zygons...

But before that reveal, they were first called Crimson Changelings...

Crimson CHANGELINGS...

The shapeshifters were disguised as shapeshifters.




...And even when a Zygon was revealed within Spike's group, he STILL thought that Twilight was evil.

Recall the Time of No Return[Eng] - page 163 by GashibokA  In this cartoon, there is a setting that zygon can not replicate mana. Because of this fact, the doctor did not doubt Twilight at first.
Other ponies, likewise, did not know the name of Zygon and called it Crimson changeling, so there was no information about this alien. So they would have thought of a changeling that could not replicate memory.

Even if Changelings can't copy memories, they would still have six years to learn everything about Twilight. She would have books, journals and diaries.

And if ponies called them Crimson Changelings, it's an obvious reason why. Crimson or not, the word "changeling" is in the name and Changeling literally means "shapeshifter". And Changelings in the MLP universe use mana. The Doctor knows this. Twilight's friends know this. And Spike knows this.
And maybe after over a thousands years, a new breed of Changeling was able to copy not just ponies, but their mana as well?

Other things are possible, but the fact that they only evolved at a time of only one thousand years admits that they do not know the theory of evolution.
