Twist by harwicks-art Twist by harwicks-art
I'm kind of surprised that Twist never had another speaking part after her first appearance, but at least she became a regular background filly in the CMC class scenes (unlike poor Pipsqueak, who seemed to vanish from Ponyville until finally making a brief background showing again.) Not that I really imagine there's a lot of story left to tell with Twist... it just seemed like she was likely to be a more important character in those days before the CMC were firmly established. But once she got her cutie mark, Apple Bloom dropped her faster than if she had declared pears the best fruit imaginable.

Never letting Apple Bloom speak to Twist ever again is one of the major oversights in the show that the writers have yet to compensate for.

Cute little squirt.

Twist seems to get along with the rest of the class pretty well, at least, so she's not too lonely I hope.

She DID get another speaking role. But Sweetie and Scootaloo gave her that "who IS this pony?" look when she put in her two cents. Apple Bloom turned her back on her for getting a cutie mark before her and then finding two friends that were willing to help her get her cutie mark. (I love AB, my least favorite filly, but she's still in there! I just never liked the way it seemed as if she just dumped her unpopular friend for more fun and blank flanked friends. :P)

This one came out super adorable <3 /fav

Did she speak again?  Which episode? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

"OH! Is it a powdered donut!? Because that sounds DELICIOUS!"
Cutie Pox

Sorry for the late reply, sadly unlike all my other online accounts, DA seems to give no email notifications on comments. But yes, to me it is one of the cutest Twist moments. Short, but just too cute.

The reason, if I recall the proper wording, was that Twist was too grounded and would just end up making it hard to justify doing crazy things with the CMC. Paraphrasing of course, but essentially she already had her cutie mark, didn't let bullies get to her, so it was just too much of a problem to fit her in.

I do hear we are getting returning S1 characters though, so we might see that Apple Bloom probably isn't a complete jerk and still consider Twist a good friend. Just one she doesn't have much in common with anymore, as kids, this means they just grew apart to pursue different goals. (I don't actually think AB is a jerk, she's selfish, but just too narrow minded to see what she's doing most the times.)

But yes, The Cutie Pox has the best Twist face.

Too bad she's so underappreciated. And, for some reasons, in fanfics (at least those I've read) she's usually the first to die (except of one in which she was shooting laser beams from her eyes :D)

I admit, I don't really read fanfics where "the first to die" often applies...  but I suppose Samuel Jackson got his start with similar roles.

Yeah, he was that black guy who usually dies first in movies xD But it's still better than that guy (I think his name was Jay Hernandez), whose role in "Silent Hill" was credited as "the corpse on a fence"...

I did think she was somewhat more rare, so that made her a good choice for my first filly portrait.

cute. just asking, if you know why do some people hate twist. I mean I don't find anything wrong with her besides that she sunbed Applebloom when she got her cutie mark.

I think it's a combo of the voice, and the fact that she was in the very first non-Mane Six starring episode, so there was a bit of anger built up over the idea that the audience was forced to watch these fillies instead of the real stars of the show, because Hasbro wanted some younger ponies on the show too.  Whenever fans feel something is forced on them by Hasbro, they seem to have trouble letting go of their anger even when things work out just fine.

that's probably it, just like the Derpy thing. Honestly I did not even know that little fiasco happened until I did some research on it. To be truthful I think some fans just overrated a little. But any ways thanks again.

Yes, I miss the little sweetheart. And IIRC she was even still happy to be Apple Bloom's friend even after getting her cutie mark. At least you'd think the other CMC girls would want her to come in as a consultant. Anyway, she's very sweet here, looking so cute with her treat and big smile (hidden mostly, but there's enough).

Really, she's so sweet that Cheerilee just smiled when Twist pinned a heart to her chest by accident.  You know that had to sting.

She has to sit in the front of the class, otherwise she coats the back of the filly's head in front of her with spit when she answers questions.
