One day at Hasbro HQ
Meghan McCarthy: You wanted to see me, sir?
Hasbro C.E.O.: Ah, Miss McCarthy. Please have a seat.
*McCarthy sits down*
Hasbro C.E.O.: So, Miss McCarthy, how is Season 3 coming along?
Meghan McCarthy: Great, sir! Larson is writing the last episode right now.
Hasbro C.E.O.: Good, good. Oh would you please do a small favor for me?
Meghan McCarthy: Of course, sir. What is it?
*Hasbro C.E.O. picks up and shows alicorn toy*
Hasbro C.E.O.: You see this, Miss McCarthy?
Meghan McCarthy: Is that… Twilight Sparkle, sir?
Hasbro C.E.O.: This is the new and improved Twilight Sparkle. She’s a princess now and I want you to promote our new product through this episode.
Meghan McCarthy: WHAT?! But sir we’re already half way through with writing the episode.
Hasbro C.E.O.: That’s all right. Put her in the second act!
Meghan McCarthy: But sir, do you realize how the bronies will react to this? They will be very upset if we do this.
Hasbro C.E.O.: I don’t care about bronies, whatever those are!
Meghan McCarthy: That would be the male fans of the show, sir.
Hasbro C.E.O.: Oh, yes well. It doesn’t matter. Because you are going to make that episode in a way that the bronies “WILL” like it!
Meghan McCarthy: But, sir…
Hasbro C.E.O.: No buts, Miss McCarthy! Every little girl wants to be a princess. Am I right? Now do it!
Meghan McCarthy: What about Lauren Faust? She would not agree to this.
Hasbro C.E.O.: Faust is no longer on the show. You don’t have a choice, Miss McCarthy. *stares into McCarthy’s eyes* You will do this.
Meghan McCarthy: (hypnotic state) I will do this.
Hasbro C.E.O.: That’s more like it. You’re dismissed.
And that my friends is how Alicorn Twilight came to be, or something like that.
