I thought this was rather insulting towards Spike. Don't be such a racist, Twilight.

To this day I still don't see why people relate this to Twilicorn. She was a unicorn, she was never meant to fly unless one-in-a-million magical deux ex machina took place. Spike is a dragon. Specific situations aside, it would be natural to expect him to have/grow wings, as its a widely ingrained part of the modern western dragon image. Most people I know that don't usually watch the show and see "Spike the Dragon" for the first time, usually asked me "why doesn't he have wings?". And I always feel it's a legitimate question, since wings are usually as common as firebreathing when one thinks of a dragon.

@Beau Skunky
it would do nothing to make him "better" as a character,
That would depend entirely on how they handled it, right? Growing wings would mean he's growing up, which in turn would open them up to more possibilities to explore his character beyond the usual, something they seem to attempting with other characters lately. Small wings would be a good way to illustrate growth without actually having to start making him bigger.

@Beau Skunky
add nothing to his personality
I disagree with this. It'd be very likely that growing wings would give him more confidence, which would open new dynamics with the other characters, or make him attempt different things that he wouldn't have before.

Point is, they're a part of their anatomy that "gives them more freedom and independence", so for him they'd perfectly represent something akin to reaching puberty and slightly altering his personality. It doesn't necesarily have to be bad, but its a natural part of life as much as any other issue the show tends to explore. It would also be interesting to see how Twilight and the others would adapt to their group's "little brother" being maybe a bit more rebelious for a while.

@Beau Skunky
lose some of his uniqueness
Yet a lot of people have been on the edge of their seats for the time Scoots finally flies. That would make her lose her "uniqueness", but people want it. Its normal to want your favorite characters to develop and go beyond. For the younger ones, that sometimes may involve slight physical changes.

I'm not even complaining about Twilicorn. I'm just saying I don't think Spike needs wings, it would do nothing to make him "better" as a character, add nothing to his personality, lose some of his uniqueness, and I'm fine with him being how he is, and it might just cause more fan drama, that's all I'm saying.

When I have several people giving me crap about a certain character, then it's understandable why I'd get a li'l sick of talking about said character.

Well, I apologize if I seemed passive-aggressive, that's not my intention.

@Beau Skunky
I didn't find it an attack, but excuse me if I get annoyed when you repeat the same fucking complaint about Twilicorn multiple times. I'm not even searching for it and you're everywhere.

Just reread all your Twilicorn comments, it's passive agressive in some way.

You get sour on a character because of other people? Seriously? .

@Beau Skunky
@Hebbocake I don't get it, others here tell me they think I'm a nice guy.

Good for you, i guess?

Yeesh, I'm sorry for having a different opinion then you, and not wanting another "Twilicorn" situation… (And I have a bad memory problem, so forgive me if I tend to repeat myself. It's something I can't help.) If you guys want him to have wings, that's fine. I don't, and I have my reasons too.

And how am I "passive-aggressive?" I always try to voice my opinions in the most polite way possible, yet people here like you still try to pick fights with me, or accuse me of things, or whatever. I don't get it, others here tell me they think I'm a nice guy.

It's bad enough some random guy sends me a batshit insane argument via private-message the other day, (citing that fanfics are "proof," that the Mane 6 are "abusive" to Spike, yeah don't try to make sense of that…) but it's starting to sour me on Spike, and his fans that they get upset so easily. (And I don't wanna be soured on him, because I like Spike too.)

>Add nothing to his personality
Yeah, if they wrote it as such

>nor allow him to do more then he already does
Except Fly. And possibly be a more (physically) mature dragon.

>He’s fine the way he is.
Never stopped anything from changing.

I like him just fine without 'em personally.

As I said we don't need another character spontaneously growing wings. It will add nothing to his personality, nor allow him to do more then he already does. He's fine the way he is.

Earth dragons
I honestly hope they aren't a thing, and that Spike not having them is either because they only grow during teenage years, or because he's somehow unique. Most likely due to how he was hatched.

The comics and tv series really hate Sparity. Rarity has no love toward Spike's race and she doeasn't even accept his identity. I don't know why would anyone ever ship them.

@FlonnesIkramant
With magic any character probably could technically, Spike wouldn't be a special case in that regard. It wouldn't be the same as suddenly naturally growing wings.

@PonyPon
Earth dragons could still be rare, though I chalk it up to the show writers & artists not giving much attention to that detail.
