>>35778572>She was prepared to leave.
She literally told Celestia she was upset to go. She was prepared for it as an inevitability and she had still barely met them. Twilight's lack of blind obedience is shown a number of times throughout seasons 1-3, and I'll line them up for ya.
S1-E1 - "I am her student, and I'll do my royal duty, but the fate of Equestria does not rest on me making friends." Literally she questions (and to a degree openly defies) Celestia as one of the first actions in the entire show establishing her character.
S1-E2 - Reluctant to leave, willing to express this sentiment to Celestia.
S1-E3 - Willing to disappoint the Princess by sending back the tickets even though asked to attend.
S1-E22 - Willing to not only disappoint Celestia but to lie to her that it was her fault Philomena got kidnapped. Twilight is willing to stand up for her friends and her ideals by even lying to Celestia's face.
S2-E2 - Her first inclination wasn't to return to Canterlot or Celestia even without her friends.
S2-E3 - She intentionally tried to bullshit an assignment to prevent punishment she believed Celestia would unfairly level against her for something outside of her control. That's not trust, that's fear.
S2-E25 - Twilight completely disregards Celestia telling her to let her intuition go, resulting in her actually saving the day on her own, mostly.
S3-E2 - Doubts Celestia's faith in her and in sending her on her own to solve this.
S3-E10 - Twilight continually doubts Celestia's wisdom in letting Discord out and is the main driving force behind everypony actively seeking to undo what Celestia thought was right.
tl;dr: You're objectively wrong in every single capacity. yiwts.>>35778579
Didn't want to dominate the thread. Felt it was sensible not to overrun everything.
