(T>B) Young Six as Element Bearers · 12:35pm Jun 8th, 2021

From this thread of mine: https://www.fimfiction.net/group/50/the-writers-group/thread/456062/young-six-as-element-bearers

It never quite happened exactly (for some reason), but they came very close, and certainly formed a close bond with the Tree. And looking at the point where they really should have got them (the Season 8 finale) we can make a reasonable deduction as to their Elements.

Is there really not a closer-up shot?

Anyway, if you assume that the auras matching the Mane 6's coat colours isn't a coincidence, then:

Gallus = Magic. A combination that seems odd at first, since griffons don't seem to have any. But if you use my alternate interpretation of it as an Element based in opening one's heart to others, then he would certainly qualify, having recently made the first friends in his life. (And he's had longer to bond with them then Twilight did!)
Yona = Honesty. Like AJ, she almost seems like a shoe-in - does she ever lie? But she does, in the following season, face a test in being herself as opposed to conforming to societal expectations, which fits.
Silverstream = Laughter. Another "obvious" one - she's the lightest hearted (and most airheaded) of the group, and almost impossible to hate. But like Pinkie, she grew up in a loving but stifled environment, where fear was more prevalent then joy - and unlike Pinkie, she only very recently got out.
Smoulder = Loyalty. Well, she certainly has it, even though dragons tend to a more selfish lifestyle - Garble has his band, but older ones seem to live solitarily. And Dash did say she wanted to try being a dragon at some point - and they've both been mistaken for guys. So why not?
Ocellus = Generosity. Well, that she went from all take to all give is part of her species backstory... but I do wonder if she was one of the holdouts who Thorax mentioned in Season 7.
Sandbar = Kindness. Well, he certainly seems like a nice guy - but now I kind of wonder if he always was.* And like Fluttershy, he seems almost more comfortable with non-ponies than with his own kind.

*In case you haven't figured out yet, my personal belief is that Element Bearers are not "naturals", but rather choose to follow a certain principle, even if it isn't always easy.

So what do you think? Would you have sorted them differently?
