Was talking about Fix’s plotholes. Namely, the fact that despite twilight giving power to these two, seems she still has power.
If Twilight was so bothered by what the two of them did, and she had so much time to think about it, plan it out… why wouldn’t she instead consider giving Cadance control over Equestria? Would that just not let it happen in their desired rant-y way?
I never get why some people think that someone ‘having a reason’ for doing horrible things somehow absolves them. Everyone has a ‘reason’, usually one they consider to be good* whether IRL or fiction; how does that make them automatically worthy of forgiveness and their acts nothing important?
- – The sole exception to me are some sociopathic serial killers who don’t even seem to take amusement or satisfaction from murder. As they say afterwards, “I just wanted to see if I would feel something, and I didn’t.”
