Celestia was not always a kind ruler...

edit: the fact that Celestia didn't give anything on the Crystal Empire explains Twilight's and her books' lack of information on the subject.

Okay, I had to stop (then skim the rest) at the part where Luna unleashes pure magic, turning her into nightmare moon, for a few reasons.

For one thing, this is formatted in a REALLY bad way. It's a giant ass wall of (probably size 8-11) text. Even my OiM had pictures, and text that most people could read without enlarging. It's also written like a fanfiction rather than an analysis, almost all of it simply speculation on top of more speculation.

Furthermore, I know that Stormeye (brisineo), Electricsheep, or myself, don't own the "Overthinking is Magic" title. However, that does not mean that you can just use it without being contested, or simply disliked, for it. (It's at least kind of known that that's what we're doing) (Unless of course you thought of it yourself, which I personally find unlikely.)

Just as Stormeye said below me, you assume too much as canon, if it is not literally said in the show itself then it is not canon, only headcanon (or fanon if a widely accepted idea by the fanbase.)

*watches season 2 premiere*

Where is the bit in which is stated that Discord was imprisoned for 1,000 years?

I gave it a go, But there's so much text there! Maybe next time add some pictures or something :) OR RAINBOWS! definitely needs more rainbows :D    
   
Just wondering... I thought this was ElectricSheep's, Zekeon's and Storm Eyes think. The 'Overthinking is magic' thing. Unless they brought some new people on board :)   
   
I might have been able to get through it if I hadn't had a exam a few days ago. Still recovering :P

The only problem with this theory is that you describe things as if they were already canon. While the term "thousand years" is used commonly in the show, I believe it was at least over the span of a few years in general that the events took place, staring first with Celestia and Luna's rise to power and the defeat of Discord.

In my own theory, Discord, in order to have the last laugh, corrupted Luna as he was turned to stone, but the effects weren't immediate. During the early years of their rule, Celestia and Luna most likely put an end to several more threats to Equestria, King Somber being one, probably also banishing the dragons and griffons that tried to invade when Discord disappeared.

Eventually Discord's corruption of Luna caused the jealousy in her to reach a point to where her own nature changed and she became Nightmare Moon. Celestia, desperate to save her sister, but unable to use the Elements to their full power, banished Nightmare Moon to stall for time and sever both of their connections to the elements, weakening them. (And many also theorize that the Everfree Forest was born through this powerful spell, which created a pocket of chaotic magic that surived still)

Huh, that was interesting. Didn't think I'd getting around to reading the entire thing.

Let me put this into perspective for you; you just wrote an essay on My Little Pony.
I like the show as much as the next guy, but Jesus, dude.

i like reading and all, but that's just too much for speculation on an animated kids show. title does it justice though

Uh, a few holes here
It never says when, exactly, Discord was defeated, Throwing the whole theory of NMM out of wack

Discord himself could control the sun and moon, he didn't force Celestia and Luna,

We don't know what the Griffons ever did

We don't know where the forest came from, most theories put the blame on the battle between Celestia and Luna, following Luna's transformation into Nightmare Moon

We don't know the extent of Celestia's power, therefore, we don't know if She could create life, or even if it IS possible


Remember, if it wasn't in the show, it's not canon
