Source work and author: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Lauren Faust
Door: My Little Pony/Equestria
Character Journal name: elementmagic
Character Name: Twilight Sparkle
Character Age: For simplicity’s sake, let’s say 18. She’s an adult by magical pony standards.
Character Played By: When not a pony, Katerina Graham.
Character History and Personality: Magic, particularly the study of, has been always been the center of Twilight Sparkle’s life. Growing up in Canterlot, her studies were all she ever focused on, taking in every scrap of knowledge even before she went to school for gifted ponies. Though clever and talented (although with a few hiccups here and there), even Princess Celestia herself saw that Twilight wasn’t seeing all that was out there, all that was important in life, and sent her to Ponyville to continue her studies there, to oversee the preparations for the Summer Sun Celebration and, most importantly, to make some friends. Bidding farewell to her parents and brother, and taking her friend and assistant Spike with her, she left for Ponyville, determined to make the princess proud and return to her studies in no time.
Of course, things would never go that smoothly. While the Summer Sun Celebration party was somewhat of a success, there was still the matter of the Nightmare Moon to deal with. Nightmare Moon was prophesied to return and bring an eternal night, a fate that had all the ponies in Ponyville worried. Twilight eventually realized it was not a hurdle to take on alone. She and her newfound friends worked together to find and combine the Elements of Harmony, each pony embodying one element, and Twilight’s being that of magic. They returned Nightmare Moon to her true state, as Princess Luna, and saved all of Equestria from a never ending night.
Twilight Sparkle realized that there was more to life than just books and magic lessons, and wrote to the Princess to say she was staying there in Ponyville. There was still much to learn, and not just about magic! While she hasn’t changed – she’s still the studious and practical pony that she’s always been – she’s realizing that not everything has to be so serious, and that balancing play with work is what makes a happy pony.
She’s still learning, of course. She still needs some gentle pushing when it comes to prying her from her books and making her socialize. Her spells sometimes don’t work out as she plans, usually due to too much stress and too many expectations she puts on herself. She still prefers solid proof over taking leaps of faith. But life is a learning experience in and of itself and she takes a great joy in her letters back home to Princess Celestia, telling her all about what she’s learned and how she’s looking forward to life’s next lesson.
Journal/Key: Her journal is a large leather bound tome, the pages old and faded to a cream color, the cover brown and bearing a gilded unicorn on the front. The key is old, brass but well cleaned, no markings since she uses magic to levitate and turn it when needed.
