Well, the Cutie Map mission could prevent Starlight from spreading her cutie mark equality idea...
This time I tried to use a bit different style for this comic. What do you think?

Great thanks to Middy for his suggestions.

This idea deserves some further explaining, maybe a follow up to figure out what she forgot?

uh, the last panel clearly shows what Twilight forgot. There's no need to dig into anything at that point

FacehoofI guess I wasn't paying close enough attention, I feel silly now.

I don't consider myself a "brony", partly because I know almost nothing of the earlier generations, but is it true that Rarity was a princess in G3?

Also, who exactly has the authority to determine the line of succession? Is there a big parliamentary debate over it every time or does the one in line choose for him/herself?

And is the canon line of succession Celestia, Twilight, then Luna or is it Celestia, Luna, then Twilight?

Generations are reboots so nothing from previous generations carries on to the next generation.
Celestia and Luna are diarchs - they are theoretically equal rulers. Twilight is apparently a minor "princess" that doesn't rule over Equestria... and doesn't even rule over Ponyville but her exact status has never beem precisely described - she's just a princess of friendship, whatever that means.

I think "Princess of Friendship" means that "Friendship" is the name of her royal house, just as "The Night" is (what seems to be) the name of Celestia's and Luna's and "Saxe-Coburg and Gotha" was that of Prince Albert (hence the name "Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha").

Now you invoke an even greater power: An evil force known only as RETCON

If anything in this show should be retconned, it's Suelight Glimmer.

I can tolerate her.... but I could do without her.

Same.

I don't even see her as a Mary sue. I think she's just wasted potential. She's not even the worst character to me, rarity takes that blood-soaked crown every time for me.....

It's a good presentation of how it could go, except the fact that Starlight Glimmer is still there. She could have retconned her away too. Actually she should.

The joke is she forgot about her =P

Rarity, Celestia, or Luna would have stopped Starlight.

Also, Twilight in her original plan was not to be a "useless bookworm", but to be like Starswirl, unless she used that on herself intentionally sarcastically, to satirize the idea that being a bookworm is inferior to being a political leader, despite examples of great bookworm (or scholar, whatever it's called) Starswirl.

Actually it still doesn't explain why Pinkie can remember so many things.

But then the episode "The Cutie Map" never happened so did Starlight Glimmer just come to ponyville and change everyone else but ignore Twilight?

Uggg, Retcons and Time travel, they both suck
