Power leads to corruption by dreampaw Power leads to corruption by dreampaw
Twilight sparkle should know this!
This is the reason she should never be made an alicorn.
But nonetheless, she is a pretty alicorn.
(I made her hair longer because well.. every alicorn has balls long hair so i thought she should join the club.)
Hope you like.

Only trouble is, corruption comes to those who are easily deceived bit by bit. But Twilight's too smart for that.

There's nothing wrong with her being an alicorn. The problem was that it should have been a hallmark to the end of the series.

I remember this image as a background image for one of Archie / Desso's tracks.
I might aswell add the fact it's very well made, good job.

Um, that is an interesting style, as much as the idea behind it. Every power is accompanied by corruption, and it is up to you to fight it or not. If I had magic powers sorry, but I would use them in my own benefit. Cutie Shrug  Great pic by the way, the coloring and shading are aspects particularly good

Stunning work and I see your point! With power comes corruption and Twilight is so young - she may have proven herself but I bet she'll make a mistake that may lead to this even temporarily

I have to agree with your description.. the whole power thing?

I have a feeling later in the series that Twilight will get cursed or something and become something like nightmare moon... eh... I dunno..

I do know this. But we princesses sign an oath that we shall not abuse our power. Oh and alicorns' hair simply grows exponentially faster.

In my opinion, in the darker corner of the picture, I'm thinking you should've made some sort of shadows, like Sombra's shadow crystals or something. Just a suggestion.

The greatest expression of power is control. As long as she maintains control she will never be corrupted.

A few things that have been confirmed:
Twilight will NOT outlive her friends
Twilight will NOT be leaving Ponyville
Twilight will NOT be changing in personality or character, she will simply have new duties and a pair of wings.
Twilight CHOOSES to stay in Ponyville and to seek help from her friends in helping her with this change

The first three was confirmed by staff, the last two confirmed in the book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell.

yet does not Celestia prove power does not always corrupt? If one has been taught correctly, and have friends in which to guide her, she would become a great leader given time. Twilight Sparkle became an alicorn because she proved herself, showed her heart through her love for her friends, and though she has made mistakes she has fixed them... learned from them.

Power will not corrupt a heart made noble through friendships.

I would counter that the desire for power corrupts those who attain it.

Those who have power thrust upon them often find they bear it well, to their own astonishment.

I do not believe that Twilight will become corrupt, though they try to remake Monster High with the Equestria Girls... D:

I did not noticed Celestia to be corrupted, Cadance is not corrupted too, and Shinning Armor as well, only Luna give up to corruption and was saved in the end.

What like what, but Alicorn of friendship can handle her powers without letting it corrupt her.

She will learns the hard way things that her books explained her. But, she will feel emotions that books can't feel but express.

She is now an alicorn: she changed by appearance, she got responsibilities with it, but she still is Twilight with her innocence.

Power corrupts only when the mind is too feeble to bear it.
