G5 wasn’t safe from the Cupcakes treatment guys! History is doomed to repeat itself. :) More below the break!
Ok so i can explain. My friend and I were joking about if G5 had a ridiculously popular creepypasta akin to Cupcakes. Thus, this drawing was born. Imagine it’s like the Rainbow/Pinkamena situation but Hitch is Rainbow and Sprout is Pinkamena, though Sprout’s motives for killing Hitch came from the fact that he believed he ‘stole his destiny,’ as you can see from Sprout now sporting Hitch’s cutie mark- (along with Pipp+Zipp’s wings and Izzy’s horn, but that’s a whole other can of worms.) Yes, this is ironic. Not really a fan of grimdark MLP fiction myself. Call this a parody. Also guess you can say this is an alternate universe where he was able to go through with his ‘war’ plans.”

Are they actually talking about Twilight?
Clearly there’s a connection between Sunny and Twilight. Twilight’s cutie mark appears on her father’s book, for one thing. And Sunny has figurines of the Mane 6, including Twilight.
But even so, consider this dialogue from the beginning of G5:
Argyle: Once upon a time, many many moons ago in ancient Equestria, there lived a very special-
Argyle: The unicorn was very bright
Sunny: As bright as the sun
Argyle: One day the princess summoned her to the castle for an important assignment
Sunny: To learn about friendship!
Argyle: She soon made lots of new friends.
You might think this is a recap of the beginning of G4, but look again. Twilight was never “summoned to the castle” to learn about friendship; Celestia actually sent her a letter about it and told her to go straight to Ponyville. And what’s this business about being “as bright as the sun”? Sure, Twilight’s smart, but why mention the sun at all?
Perhaps it’s just a reference to how Twilight was (eventually) a worthy successor to Celestia. Perhaps Sunny just likes comparing things to the Sun because that’s her name. Or perhaps...perhaps we’re reading this all wrong.
Maybe “the Princess” in this story isn’t Celestia; it’s actually Twilight. And “the unicorn” who is “as bright as the sun”? That’s actually Luster Dawn. Wasn’t Luster summoned to the castle, to learn about friendship, in The Last Problem? This isn’t from the beginning of G4; this is from the end.
It’s clear that there was some sort of cataclysm between G4 and G5. What if Luster Dawn was involved with that somehow?
(Then again, there’s one other Princess Protege who’s also connected to the sun. Her name is Sunset Shimmer...)
