(Destiny) I Don't Want The Power by Mattatatta (Destiny) I Don't Want The Power by Mattatatta
"I don't want these wings, and I don't want that name."

More artwork for the physical copy of Destiny: A Tale of Unicorn Wings. It should've shipped a long time ago, but I've fallen way behind on making the artwork for the booklet. The only reason why those of you have not yet received your copies yet is that I'm still trying to get all the pages done. It'll be finished soon enough. Each double-page spread is another load off my mind, and with less on my mind, the easier it is for me draw something and actually like what I draw.

Next up, some Pippywish for the back cover - the unexpected darling of the entire album's art department and production team.

I am guessing it is the good old "immortality is a curse thing"
right?

More like a conflict between an old lifestyle and a new lifestyle. In Destiny, Twilight wants to live up to her mentor's expectations and be a successful princess, but at the same time she doesn't want to give the life she has in Ponyville.

Immortality isn't even hinted at surprisingly. Just power, responsibility, and destiny.

This Sounds like a story that readers can relate to if
they went through a transitional period in their lives.

There is that connection there, but like any story some elements are exaggerated for entertainment. The core of the conflict though is a common real-life conflict.

struggle on some or the reader won't give a rats ass.

Sometimes, Twilight, Destiny doesn't give a damn what we want. You just have to run with what you've got. You are an alicorn, the Princess of Friendship, the Element of Magic, the mistress of the violet light but... never forget: With great power comes great responsibility. This is your blessing; this is your curse; this is who and what you really are. Who are you? You're Princess Twilight Sparkle.
