The First Key by atryl The First Key by atryl
Just a headcanon thing, I don't really follow the fandom's things, but I thought why not drawing this.

Oh, by this I meant that thread is the first key to the mysterious box at the Tree of harmony. Or something. Not sure. But it seemed important to me :)

tons of predestination in this season. If Tirek had not come at all they would not have needed the box but they also would not have gotten the final key.

the thread is the first key that actually sounds quite likely to me but would that make the rubber chicken that pinkie got the second one??

pretty good headcanon, the rainbow yarn definitely gives a kind of "ties the bind" kind of feeling to it.

Perhaps the magic of those key items comes from the strong, positive feelings of the moment when it`s given to an Element wielder?

Yeah, I definitely think that the thread is important, considering that Rarity earned it with her generosity and friendship, and that it was kinda emphasized in the end.

It's the first key. RD's key was already obtained. Pinkie will get hers from Cheese Sandwich (Don't deny it), maybe Twilight will get hers from Cadence or the CMC. Fluttershy might get hers for realizing her kindness. Maybe AJ will get hers from using her Honesty to do better than the Flim-Flam Brothers, or something. And the Keys will unlock the Rainbow Power that will rejuvenate the Tree of Harmony, and Twilight will live in Celestia & Luna's old Castle, after restoring it.

It's definitely a key, no doubt about it. I mean, the thing glowed at the last moment of the episode. What pointless object does that.

Regarding that the rainbow thread was something important and unexpected that appeard at the end of this episode, and it being considered a key to the box...
...
...wouldn't fluttershy's teeth also fall in the same category?

:iconheavenshipperartist:

I don't think so, it's more of a slice of life than the actual story. I think Fluttershy would get her key later :)

Well, to me, that Daring Do book may transform into the first Key of Harmony. My headcanon.

Sorry that I replied to you twice, but...

The thread is indeed the first key. The metal Rainbow Dash receives in S4E11 is the second key. (It has a rainbow color, and the same shine as the spool of thread; looks like a "rainbow color" + "rainbow shine" is what indicates the keys.

XGluon Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014
I doubt it.

Think about it. Wouldn't Rainbow Dash be VERY upset if her new favorite novel transformed into a key.
After all, you can't read a key.
(And even though the rest of the Mane Six could always get her another copy, RD would complain about how "it just isn't the same".)

Personally, I'm thinking one of two things:
A: The "keys" aren't literal keys, they're just random objects. The objects' connections to the "attributes of the Element of Harmony" that the Mane Six possess is what opens the box.
B: The first Key of Harmony is actually in the form of a rainbow-colored bookmark that Daring Do slipped inside the book.
 (Well, it's because I think that this new "Rainbow Power" thing has MUCH to do with the contents of the box, and so the "keys", if initially disguised as ordinary objects, would be indicated by having a rainbow color(and a shine just like the rainbow thread's).)

you are probably right! the way it sparkled at the end..
maybe - the episode was about Rarity proving that she in fact represents generosity. Maybe when the ponies really prove that they represent the element given to them they will recive a gift (another key) from a pony they helped...
