What if the water melted her cutiemark off, along with a painfully generous portion of skin, and then painted a random one in its place...


Think abooouuuutttt itt....

Why are cutie marks the main source of your talent?

You're telling me even if you have 30 years worth of training it can all be lost in one go?

Yes. If you spend 1000 years practicing and studying magic. You will lose all of it instantly besides a simple levitation spell. Any unicorn who does not get a magic cutie mark is doomed to little better than an earth pony.

The only time rarity got new spells she could use without a book was when she had rainbow dash's cutie mark. Cutie marks give you the sky or chain you to the dirt.

I feel like each new season they change how cutie marks work.

If spells exist to remove cutie marks and twilight switched her friend's cutie marks. Why is cutie mark switching not a profession or more common place?

My explanation for how qt marks work is that they are a container for accumulated skill in whatever they represent, which is why the pony can get better at it but also qt mark manipulation magic can completely remove or misplace the skill associated with it. However the pony with the qt mark also grows used to having it due to storing part of him/herself inside the qt mark, thus if she gets another one or loses the qt mark he/she loses her entire balance so to speak, depending on how long he/she has had the mark for.
I think that'd even explain why Applebloom was able to use herbs back in the day to get multiple qt marks but able to perform their feats, while when the mane 6 got theirs switched around they had trouble using their new qt marks.

Oh, and Starlight Glimmer's magic wasn't merely removing a qt mark, it was also putting an inhibitor qt mark that forcefully shut off any distinctive trait a character has whenever they try to display it. It was most noticeably displayed when they were in the locked room and they constantly had their new qt marks glowing black whenever they tried to act like themselves, only to be forced to act mediocre and uncharacteristic.

Some character's default state IS being mediocre, it just happens that theirs isn't.
