* Despite having gotten to the same stage many times before, Twilight still pauses to greet her friends near the end, pointing out that "there's always time for a group hug".

Based on the first chapter of the sequel if they hadn't Twilight probably would have been DrivenToSuicide.
* Twilight using one of her loops to come out as gay to her parents, something she's been afraid of ever since a childhood friend rejected her over it. [[spoiler: It turns out they already knew, because they found her PornStash]]
* Twilight reconciling with Azalea, after the two fell out over the latter's reaction to [[spoiler: an alternate Twilight becoming the Changeling Queen.]]
