Trivia / The Assassination of Twilight Sparkle

Go To

  • Creator Backlash: The author posted on mid-June 2019 that he is still proud of the overall Myth Arc planned but felt that he could have handled the Genre Shift better due to it causing a massive hit in the series' overall popularity. The damage was so bad that the amount of likes for each of the sequels after Aftermath of a Fallen Star have yet to exceed 100 despite them being published for more than 6 months. To put this into perspective, his later one-shot stories easily breached that same number in a couple of weeks.
  • Inspiration for the Work:
    • The author has claimed the the idea for Aftermath of a Fallen Star came from Ripples, a side-story from The Killer Rarityverse which features POV's from ponies affected by Rarity's killing spree.
    • The idea for Path Of A Dragon came to be a Darker and Edgier version of Fairy Tail according to Word of God.
  • Schedule Slip: The stories for Part 2.5 were finally going to begin on mid-March 2018...only for real-life issues to crop up and all story updates had to be on hold until later May. Read here.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Originally, the story was going to be about Celestia tracking down Twilight's killers and how far she would go to seek justice. Also, the story would have been adopted by whoever wanted it. Eventually, the author liked the idea so much that he decided to write it himself.
    • Night Light was going to get his own chapter until it was scrapped.

    • The third story in The ’Verse titled Ragnarock of Equestria was going to be written in 2017. However, the author thought that the overall setting wasn't fleshed out enough, decides to write a Part 2.5 in the form of two stories whose setting is the growing up of Spike in Erebus Isles and Majesty Blueblood in Unicornia titled Rise Of A Dragon and Rise Of An Empress respectively.
      • On another note, Ember was originally going to be Killed Off for Real in Ragnarok of Equestria until the author had this idea, deciding to spare her by bringing her into Part 2.5 instead.
  • Working Title: Rise Of An Empress was changed to Rise Of A Tyrant as of Christmas 2017. Then come March 2018, the titles of the Part 2.5 stories are changed from Rise Of A Dragon and Rise Of A Tyrant to The Path of The Dragon and The Path of The Tyrant. The finalised title as of late June 2018 is Path of The Dragon and Path of The Tyrant.
