We have the Candance Oligarchy, but not a Twilight Federation?

I vote yes. She's got a top hat and a monocle. You can't argue with that class!

I always wondered what kind of legion Cadence would be in charge of (personally thought it was the 'Crystal Empires', but Oligarchy sounds fancier).

She is definitely becoming a favorite though.

Well, not everybody agrees on whether it's Cadence or Cadance. Technically, either is correct. I just go by the original Cadence (which was the spelling when they announced her), but through some reason or the other they changed their minds and changed it to Cadance far later. It's a mystery why thyey changed the spelling, and that's what we've been stuck with since.

I have no problem with those who spell it Cadance, but just remember that it used to be Cadence, and probably would still be if they didn't change it mysteriously.

iirc she was named after Cadince, the daughter of a Hasbro exec. :iconlunappleshrugplz: Early publicity stuff is made while production is ongoing and always subject to change (like how Pinkie was a pegasus in some of the early promos, Selene was changed to Luna fairly late in the game, and so on), not to mention that it's usually put together by a separate team who isn't involved in the show itself, so unless there's some really good reason not to I just prefer to go with what they use in the finished product.

I don't blame you, and I have nothing against the choice. If I'm annoyed at anyone, it's Hasbro, not you. I just haven't had anywhere to say this before, and it's been bottled up for too long. But I really do not like the name change for 3 reasons.

1: It was sudden and unexpected.

2: That "a" just about kills me, as the grammar freak inside me screams out "That's wrong!". It seriously hurts my brain.

3: As far as I know, it was changed AFTER the premier of "A Canterlot Wedding" They shouldn't have changed it then.

I just noticed something though. Your picture spells it "Cadance", but the picture name is spelled "Cadence". Tricky.

I wouldn't call it "sudden and unexpected"; we had one very early promo spell it Cadence, and it's been Cadance ever since. It was not changed after the premiere -- all the promos, publicity materials, websites, and so on leading up to the episode airing spelled it Cadance. Or do you mean after the episode was made rather than premiered? If so, do you have a source on that?

I initially spelled it Cadence, I just forgot to change the title. I'll do that now, thanks!

Apparently I've never seen that promo then, and my source is incorrect. I'll have to find that promo.

I still prefer Cadence, but hey. You're not me. You can say Cadance all you like. I can't really stop you. As for me, I have a friend to interrogate. He's got some explaining to do.

...okay, I guess? I can't say it burns me up that someone spells a pretty pony princess's name differently. :iconapplejackwhatplz: Maybe it's just Internet Tone, but you seem to think I'm getting upset or hyperdefensive or something, and I'm really not.

Luna contributes freedom for everypony, celestia contributes order. Cadence only spreds Love around and doesnt realy lead anything.
