"I don't know what lead to it, but that... made me think. About you. About me. About anything other than getting what I craved. It was... new. Foreign. I kept up that introspective thought process up until your had another nightmare. One that wasn't caused by me.">Your hands stop, clenching into fists on your knees.
"That... irritated me. It seems selfish, and it was, but I wanted to be the only issue you had.">You gesture around you with your hand.
"You know the rest.">Twilight slowly nods, fixing you with her gaze now that you were done explaining yourself.
"So... you're a part of me, but now you're also yourself.">You run your hands through the flared-up strands of your hair, causing them to fall into a much more comfortable mess of violet and magenta.
"I suppose... Wait a moment.">You sit up again, turning to face her.
"The geodes.">She frowns.
"What about them?">You start explaining, wings flaring up of their own accord.
"When they all came to the seven of you, their magic caused all of you to gain your abilities and forms. Rainbow's speed, your levitation, the outfits and crystalline forms...">Your wings are flapping, but you're barely paying attention, on a roll.
"That might have done it as well. The additional magic from the geodes affected you, so maybe it affected me! That's why I gained full self-awareness and control of my cravings. That's why I can do this!">You swing a hand around, your magic coursing through your veins, before a giant purple pillar of crystals forms out of the ground and rises high enough to meet the roof of Canterlot High.
"You weren't the only one to gain new magic, Twilight! Heck, it did more than just that, it made me... me!">You pause, looking around to find yourself hovering a few feet above Twilight, who looks a bit uncomfortable below you at your sudden outburst.>Wincing, you lower yourself back to the ground, dismissing the crystals.
