Here There Be Sirens

Twilight:  "If the Sirens had their way, they would have divided and conquered all of Equestria.  But a certain Starswirl the Bearded wasn't having it.  Rumor has it, he found a way to banish them to another world... one where he believed their magic power would be lost..."

Applejack:  "But Starswirl must have sent them there ages ago... how come they're just surfacing now?"

I don't really ever expect them to actually tackle the chore of making sense of the Equestria Girls timeline in any real fashion.  Trying to reconcile human Celestia and Luna and matching them up with seemingly immortal ponies who have been around for millennia in an alternate dimension is a massive headache.  The easiest way to explain it would likely be to involve Discord in the creation of the mirror and the world beyond it, allowing you to just shrug and say "Don't need to explain it... it's just Chaos" whenever the question of how all characters entering the mirror end up existing in the same time and at whatever age fits the story.

That said, I still liked the open-ended question that was posed in "Rainbow Rocks"...  They don't even attempt to suggest an answer to it in the film.  But there's certainly fun to be had in imagining that the Sirens have been hanging out in the human world for centuries, doing their thing, forming the basis for all sorts of legends as their magic slowly dries up and leaves them relatively powerless by the time that the present day roles around.  

Or maybe I just wanted to draw evil, pirate versions of the little mermaid as a change of pace.  You can never have too many pirate mermaids.

After being told to do so numerous times, I have finally set up a tip jar at Ko-Fi:
If you're feeling generous and would like to encourage me, feel free to drop me a small amount... it would be most appreciated!
