[Edit] Changed Twilight's first line on panel 3. Normally I don't edit things like dialogue after publishing a page, but this was an instance where I feel I made the mistake of not thinking through the script carefully enough beforehand. Having had more time, I concluded that since Twilight wasn't using the word "treason" literally, I ought to have had her say what she meant in the first place.

[Edit 2] I apparently forgot to draw Cadance's horn in the second frame of the bottom row. That has been fixed. Page, will you leave me alone now?

The more of this comic I write, the more I wish I could have wrote this as the followup to Magical Mystery Cure. But if I did, I would have had to write Discord, a character who wouldn't have wanted to miss out on such a dramatic event in Equestrian history, but sadly is of a caliber far beyond my writing skills. :(

Oh and if Twilight's revelation seems a little strange, keep in mind she's been mulling over this for the past hour or so of in-comic time.

My heart aches seeing Celestia this down :( (Sad)  . Of course she has flaws. Everyone has. But there was no need to treat her that hard. Or was it?

I love her character but sadly the original FiM series is about to have the development of Twilight in its spotlight, so Celestia just seems to be a tool for the writers to teach Twilight all her lessons. Hence all her flaws, arrogance and trolling appearance. It's disappointing how perfunctory her character is developed in the series :( .

Well? Don't keep us in suspense, Twi? What do you think you can ask Garret that will shed light upon this situation? What can Garret answer that Gralo cannot lie about?

Oh? What's this? Is Twilight starting to gain some individuality from her mentor?

I would have to agree, Twilight believing that Celestia knew what she was doing ALL the time? I know this is fan-fic but, THAT'S a little dumb; just saying.

I feel sad now. In a good way, though. It shows that this comic is emotional (they should make this an episode, minus the Fluttershy swearing part)

"oh come on, seriously, really?
 No really?
 Really really really, you really never though that Celestia could make a mistake ?

ever heard that "a wise mind benefits from a second opinion" ?

You never had to follow Celestia or be just like her to be a good pony and certainly you didn't have to be that way to be yourself... Celestia isn't any of us and none of us are her... that's nothing wrong, and it is neither a reason to not cooperate yet is isnt an excuse to not hold her accountable for her mistakes either... the biggest issue is Gralo, so if we're to do anything, we do it now (or we die....)"
