In which I turn out to have been right about something

The entire opening of my story Somepony New is dependent on the grownup Lyra Heartstrings living in Ponyville but coming to Canterlot now and then: she meets up with Desert Brush at the Canterlot train station, sees him going away with Twilight Sparkle, and then duly reporting what she’s seen once she’s back in Ponyville.

I owe M. A. Larson for setting that up in Amending Fences. Really, I do.

    And not outright confirmation, but support for *my* headcanon that Twi came from a fairly privileged family: that library thing is like no college apartment I’VE ever seen.

    I’ve always thought so. From Second Act, in which Twi meets up with Cadance and Shining Armor:

    “I don’t think I’ve even seen you since the wedding.”

    “I’m sorry about that. I’ve just been incredibly busy, and, well, what do I have to say to a pair of newlyweds?”

    “We’re hardly newlyweds,” said Cadance. “It’s been almost a year.”

    “She’s like this,” he explained. “She always has been. When she was living in the Ivory Tower, she wouldn’t come home for days at a time, and it was only about a fifteen-minute trot.”
