I just remembered that Twilight is an alicorn now, so she is immortal, I think. Am I right? Ponies who become alicorns become immortal? I guess that's why Celestia or Luna never died or old age :D That was on mind when I saw that episode where Applebloom had to bring Granny Smith to class for show and tell or something. Then when she told her story, she was young, but Celestia still looked the same! Ugh...this kind of stuff hurts my head :D Anyways, nice work mate!

Well, there are some different theories on the subject. Cadence and Twilight are "artificial" alicorns, since they weren't born that way but rather made that way through the magic of love and friendship, respectively. Therefore, they should age and die like normal ponies. Luna and Celestia, however, were born alicorns, and therefore are "natural" alicorns, which makes them immortal.

That's the halfway canonized theory, anyway, thanks to tweets from Meghan and the animating crew.

That makes sense! It does sound unfair when Twilight turns into an alicorn and becomes immortal while her friends and everyone else dies. So Cadence wasn't born an alicorn? I thought she was :) Did they mentioned that in the series? I know this theory has nothing to do with Twilight being an alicorn, but I have a theory that the mane 6 will become alicorns too! I don't know. I guess I complicated things even more :D

They mention in the book The Crystal Heart (or something--I can't remember the exact title) that Cadence was born a Pegasus. 

And I'm not sure if the Mane Six need to become alicorns, but Season 4 has to correct this "We're totally dependent on Twilight" thing.

megahn mcarthy has already tweeted that Twilight won't outlive her friends. that's literally what she said, so i'm assuming that Twi is still mortal. also, Cadance's origins were explained in the book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell

Yes. I've seen a lot of "Twilight mourning her friends because she's immortal", and I thought it would be interesting to see a reversal.

Not sure--since nothing's canonized yet I figured I'd leave it all up to RD's perspective. 

My headcanon is though that Twilight is immortal, however--I like the drama it creates, despite it not being canon.
