Trixie's Great and Powerful Guide v1.99e
Numbers Edition

Brief Introduction

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a reboot of the MLP franchise by Powerpuff Girls artist Lauren Faust, currently viewed by (almost) the entire Internet, not only the intended audience. Here is a place where we discuss the joy of friendship.

> My Little Pony? Seriously?

It's a clever show. It has excellent writing, character dynamics, humor, animation, and generally treats kids seriously rather than condescending to them. It has every right to be a 20 minute corporate committee designed infomercial, but it's not.

> Isn't this a show for little girls?

Pixar technically makes shows for little boys, and produce some of the best animation in the world.

> Okay, fine. I'll give it a try. Where do I start?

No Brony could ask for more. I recommend watching the episodes in order. They're all up on Youtube. Unusually, Hasbro seems fine with having the entire series up in public because they've made no move to bring down any of the episodes. Search for "Friendship is Magic Episode 1" and you should find the series pretty easily... Or search for "Sharing is Magic" Google Doc. That is all.

> Okay, I'm going to watch it but this had better live up to the hype!

Whoa, calm down there. The show is light hearted, optimistic fun but it's not for everyone. It's good fun, the community is good fun, and everyone can do with a reminder that friendship is magic but if it doesn't gel for you we'll love and tolerate you anyway. Plus, you might hit the wrong episode. Ask first?

> Iron Hoof/Fan Theories/Shipping/Binding

All in good fun! If it's not your cup of tea, skim it, but this show has triggered a great creative outpouring from the Internet. Pony themed fan-art is abundant and often excellent. See below for some examples.

> Derpy Hooves/Doctor Whoof

Two minor background characters who were adopted as emblems of 4chan. Derpy Hooves is so named due to an animation error in the first episode that had her eyes facing in different directions; 4chan has assigned her the role of Ponyville's mailpony, and her only line so far has been "Muffins". The show's animators are aware of Derpy's popularity and she's shown up a few times recently with her eyes obviously derped. Currently made canon in Feeling Pinkie Keen and in Faust's picture showcased below, Derpy was deemed important enough to appear in storyboards for Season II.

Dr. Whoof is a pony with an hourglass cutie mark; he and his kin save time and space very quietly off camera.

Deadly's Ironically Presented Anti-Spoiler Measures

DO YOU HATE SPOILER TAGS?

Well, Deadly's here to help you get rid of them... with a vengeance! Create a new bookmark in your browser and copy the code below as the link/url of said bookmark. Name it something helpful, like "Spoilers B GONE!" or whatever. Then whenever you view a thread here on GitP you just hit the bookmark and BAM! no more spoilers.

You won't even see the boxes, just the bare innards in all their gory glory.

It also makes sure that no image is wider than 600px, to avoid stretching pages, and will attempt to "intelligently" remove repeated images except avatars. Neat, huh? Sadly that last part means stuff like pony emotes may get lost but the forum doesn't make it easy for me to single out images in quotes as I'd have liked... that's an open problem, I guess.

Tested in Firefox, Chrome and Opera. Should work in any modern browser, but you never know with these things.


javascript:(function() { var a = document.getElementsByTagName('div'); for (var i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { if (a[i].className == 'spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'block'; a[i].className = ''; } else if (a[i].className == 'pre-spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'none'; }} var ims = new Array(); var tmp; a = document.getElementsByTagName('img'); for (i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { tmp = a[i].parentNode.className ; if (ims.indexOf(a[i].getAttribute('src')) == -1) { ims.push(a[i].getAttribute('src')); a[i].style.maxWidth = '600px'; } else if (tmp != 'avataroverflow' && tmp != 'alt2') { a[i].style.display = 'none' ; }}})();

If you don't mind repeated images, here's a version that leaves them be.

javascript:(function() { var a = document.getElementsByTagName('div'); for (var i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { if (a[i].className == 'spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'block'; a[i].className = ''; } else if (a[i].className == 'pre-spoiler') { a[i].style.display = 'none'; }} a = document.getElementsByTagName('img'); for (i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i++) { a[i].style.maxWidth = '600px'; }})();

[FFRP] [Slice o'Life] *Loaf it or Leave it
[QUOTE=Tectonic Robot;13778331]
"Ah, thank you very much, Miss Constance!" Fresh smiles and allows the astrologer to lead the way, looking at the rather interesting town. "Thanks for showing me around, miss. I owe you one. Who's selling the building?"

Constance stops.

I... Don't rightly know. I always assumed it was Ponyville property, or perhaps reacquainted by the Royal guard or the clergy, an put back out. I don't suppose I even know how Ponyville works! We have a Mayor, but there's never an election, and she doesn't seem to do anything...

Oh well! Who cares right? Between this delicious bread, your winning charm and some funds I appropriated out of my own Border Defense budget, we will have you fixed up brighter than Sirius! Now, how do you plan to have your family's wheat shipped down here for making bread with? I do they deal directly in flour? Or...? She starts walking again, after circling a hoof to prompt Fresh into explaining.

[FFRP] [Slice o'Life] *Loaf it or Leave it


"Ah, thank you very much, Miss Constance!" Fresh smiles and allows the astrologer to lead the way, looking at the rather interesting town. "Thanks for showing me around, miss. I owe you one. Who's selling the building?"

Constance stops.

I... Don't rightly know. I always assumed it was Ponyville property, or perhaps reacquainted by the Royal guard or the clergy, an put back out. I don't suppose I even know how Ponyville works! We have a Mayor, but there's never an election, and she doesn't seem to do anything...

Oh well! Who cares right? Between this delicious bread, your winning charm and some funds I appropriated out of my own Border Defense budget, we will have you fixed up brighter than Sirius! Now, how do you plan to have your family's wheat shipped down here for making bread with? I do they deal directly in flour? Or...? She starts walking again, after circling a hoof to prompt Fresh into explaining.


You didn't jump the gun, no. At this point we were just waiting for old thread to die.

Man. That funny gait stuff is still with me. Gotta look into that!

[FFRP] [Slice of Life] Loaf it or Leave it

"My... winning charm? You're flattering me, miss Constance. And thank you! The recipes of my family have been perfected and passed down for many years, and we are very proud of them. I was thinking about chatering a few fields for seeds, and having the family cart down some flour while the bakery is getting started."

Fresh looks around a bit, before leaning closer to Constance. "This is embarrassing, but... can you think of a decent name for the store? I want it to be different from the family's main store, The Lovely Loaf, but I'm having trouble with inspiration..." The stallion evidently hasn't yet noticed that Constance has apparently offered to help him buy the building!

Anyhoo, writing update, because why not.
I've gotten to about 11,500 words without really figuring out what exactly is going on, but I don't think I can go any further without it. All I've got so far is that something native to the alien world brought them there, and the same being is responsible for Pinkie's disappearance. However, I don't know what that thing is, or why it is doing this. This is important information, but I'm really not getting any good ideas.

Also, I loved those PMVs that were linked in the last thread. Beautiful.

Hellos all you wonderful ponies! I am back! Now here is some random ideas I am thinking about putting into a fic. A random ship fic that probably has none of the ponies people expect. One or two more mature fics that can be dark material. And one clop fic for a friend whom enjoys the show. My one main thing for the authors here is what did you find hardest about writting a fanfic?

Strife Warzeal
2012-08-24, 01:32 PM
Wow. That took forever.


UFO ??? (Somewhere between 13-17)
Dear Twilight,

Today was simply awful! A huge wave of UFOs arrived and the human plane set off to fight them. Next thing I know we're being ordered to get aboard our ship as well. Nothing to it, I thought. Just another simple mission. But no. I heard yammerings from the humans about how their interceptors were being forced to retreat, and that the aliens had landed in the Middle East for emergency repairs.

When we got there the desert was scorching hot as always. But that wasn't the worst part. This UFO was huge! And barely damaged at all I must say. Needless to say their were more aliens then we had ever faced before as well. Even that wasn't the worst part though.

These little gray beasts attacked our minds! Oh poor Daisy and Fancy Pants. Their minds were constantly blasted, going from blinding rage to utter despair and fear. Occasionally they claim they were taken over all together. Though luckily they had ditched their guns in time so nothing happened. They tried to get Octavia too but she shrugged it off effortlessly. Blueblood was sent scurrying for a bit but recovered and rejoined us later. Rose got shot in the head, but luckily my armor and some quick medical attention from Octavia kept her alright. She won't be fighting for the next week though according to the human doctors.

As a result we felt that it was unsafe to keep everypony together. So only a small group consisting of Vinyl Scratch, our tank and I entered the UFO. It was so tedious clearing out that first level. Vinyl learned how to shoot through the teleporters which surprised me. I mean you can never guess what magics some unicorns know. Makes me feel a little jealous in fact. Anyways Vinyl ran out of autocannon shots pretty quickly but after she killed what looked like an alien tank. We cleared most of the second floor and moved onto the third, leaving Blueblood, Spitfire, and Soarin to finish the job. The aliens sent Spitfire into a blind rage allowing one of the aliens to sneak up on her. Luckily Soarin dropped it with one shot to the head!

The third floor was full of tight corridors. We kept the tank guarding the teleporter but one of the aliens sneaked up behind us and blew it apart with a big cannon! It's a good thing this armor I made is so effective or the blast could have ruined my tail! Vinyl and I kept clearing the corridors with little problems. I zapped a few with my stun rod, and rather then be captured the last alien blew himself up. Or missed horribly. Same result either way though!

Weirdly the human disorganization has struck again. Instead of sending our captives to your base they insisted that they come to my base, no matter how many times I told them that we didn't have the facility to hold them! Naturally they died as a result. So now my base is building it's own prison to hold these things. Oh and we need another tank. Things just don't last do they. And after I had just repainted it too. :(

Sincerely,

Rarity Unicorn

So do waves of 4 or 5 UFOs usually happen? And all in the same general area too. My interceptors couldn't shoot any of them down but they landed anyways so I sent both squads in. Rarity's squad got in quick and did that mission take forever! The mind control caused a restart but it only got me once. I did have plenty of other restarts though till I learned how to shoot through teleporters effectively. Oh and that my tank could use them. That made things so much easier.

Anyways the UFOs ran away before Twilight's squad got there and my interceptors were still too damaged/refuelling to do anything. So they didn't get to do anything at all. Still made a ton of money as a result.

Now in research matters I recently got Power Armor. But it requires Elerium-115 to make. Not much but to get everypony with the armor would cost a good 150 Elerium-115. Is this a good investment?

I think I'll repost this report next thread along with the requested screen shots. In the meantime bed.

The power armor is good but research, I think it's UFO Power Source, and you upgrade it. Are you still relying on basic human weaponry for your interceptors? You won't be able to take on the bigger ships until you upgrade, you were lucky that you managed to get that ship, which I think was a Terror ship, maybe an alien base ship. Hard to tell with the description of three floors, cyberdiscs, and what appears to be a blasterbomb launcher. If that's true be glad the AI sucks, they don't know how to shoot the blasterbomb up the gravlifts (they are gravlifts not teleporters), or there'd be no more Rarity and Vinyl.

Sectoids are one of two races that use psionics, though they aren't too good at it. Try to capture, it's usually a leader, to make your troops much better.

Hardest part is to summon the will to sit down and just write, and to not get distracted constantly. In my experience, once you get over those two hurdles things tend to flow nicely in most cases. At least if you have an idea what you're writing and how the story is supposed to move along, if you don't then you need to do some thinking first. I tend to start by writing a brief outline of the chapter I'm writing (or the whole story if it's a short one), just one or two lines for each section so I know the sequence of major events. After that it's just a linear progression from start to finish. That's what works for me, at least.

So awesome!Quite nice. If even half of the forward-pointing things on that model are weapons, the craft will pack quite a punch.
(Ten linear cannons on the wings, four smaller ones in the front hull, dual gatling chin turret, plus six missile tubes. Quite the package.)

Just don't call it a "VTOL Tank", please. A gunship is a gunship.

Wow, I am so behind that it mysteriously changed into a new thread on me.

Found something relevant to the chicken tank.

I've got some thing to say to everypony. It's about all those "jokes" about me being a chicken, and being an actual chicken, and that I can't fly because I'm too stupid or deformed or something. And about all those stories where everypony makes me miserable or abused or something.

I... I just want to say...

Just don't call it a "VTOL Tank", please. A gunship is a gunship.

Those four hull things are actually not weapons, but terribly boring searchlights...! Even really high-tech vehicles still want running lights occasionally...

But between the missile launchers (there may be more than six missiles in there...!), the multibarrel phased plasma chin turret, and a heavy-starfighter-grade phased plasma cannon array on the wings, it's gonna punch hard...!

I don't think I've ever called it anything other than a VTOL. ("VTOL tank" isn't something that I've ever heard in wargames terminology.) But yes, it's essentially a VTOL gunship, as opposed to a grav tank (because some grav tanks, like the Strayvian ones, can fly (some, like the Cybertanks are more like hover tanks).


Definitely like this design...

Yeah, quite pleased with how that came out myself!

('Course, some of that might be because it's closer to a starfighter/starship, which is more my area of expertise.)

We have always been firethread. Ever since that incident with the CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS TIME COMMANDOS. Yup.

"My... winning charm? You're flattering me, miss Constance. And thank you! The recipes of my family have been perfected and passed down for many years, and we are very proud of them. I was thinking about chatering a few fields for seeds, and having the family cart down some flour while the bakery is getting started."

Fresh looks around a bit, before leaning closer to Constance. "This is embarrassing, but... can you think of a decent name for the store? I want it to be different from the family's main store, The Lovely Loaf, but I'm having trouble with inspiration..." The stallion evidently hasn't yet noticed that Constance has apparently offered to help him buy the building!

Blink, blink.

A name? I uh... Hm.
Loaves and Laughter? Bread and Banter? Wheat and White? Quills and Sofa-- no, that ones taken. Mmm. Names are hard D=

Let's just try and get the building together first. And from the sounds of it you'll need farmland too! The only good fields around belong to the Apple family. Or those Lemonfolk, but we don't talk about them within city limits... Or there are a couple places on the edge of town? Do you have a preference?


Hellos all you wonderful ponies! I am back! Now here is some random ideas I am thinking about putting into a fic. A random ship fic that probably has none of the ponies people expect. One or two more mature fics that can be dark material. And one clop fic for a friend whom enjoys the show. My one main thing for the authors here is what did you find hardest about writting a fanfic?

Mostly getting all the pieces to flow right. Sometimes a great idea is ruined by not having the right words or coming across funny hen you meant serious or something.

And hey, when you write that clopfic shoot me a link.

*Glomps Scoot and carries her off to treat a big tub of ice cream*

Btw I learned something new. On another forums somepony rps as AppleBloom and does a good job. I asked her about how tall ponies are. She provided me with a good example. Most ponies are about three feet tall, and foals about 2 feet tall. Celestia is then roughly five feet tall. So I am about two inches taller then her!! >.>;;;; What can't a pony be happy about somethings.

Hee~

Yeah, we went over that here, too. We figured out their height sometime around the order season I think? Darth Bobcat did the maths. The real fun in in how proportional the ponies are, I think.

Also, congrats on being taller than the princesses!

So, over at the LoL thread someponies brought up a webcomic talking of a Pony MOBA. So using LoL as basis what would be our pony's abilities?

example:

Pony: Fluttershy
Catagory: Support/Jungler

P: Hidden: when in bushes fluttershy gains increased mana and health regeneration
Q: Critters: One of Fluttershy's animals arrive at target location for 6 seconds (max 1 animal at rank one, 2 at rank three, 3 at rank five) Animal will prioritize target of fluttershy's auto attack or closest enemy units. 3 sec cooldown
W: Melodic Voice: heals target friendly unit. If one of Fluttershy's animal recieves heal, it applies a 1.5 sec movement speed slow to its next attack. 10 seconds Cooldown
E: Cheering: increase target friendly unit's movment and attack speed by 1.5 seconds 8 sec cooldown
R: Stare: all enemy units in a cone in front of Fluttershy are stunned for 2 seconds and takes damage 180/150/100 sec cooldown

Freakin' awesome, Scoots! Grats on the new ride!


Random crackpot theory time!

So. Alicorns. Alicorns come in two varieties: lesser and true. True alicorns are Celestia and Luna. They are the only two we know of so far, at least. True alicorns embody the aspects of all three pony races: The strength and connection to nature of the earth ponies; the flight and connection to the weather of the pegasi; and the magical prowess of the unicorns. The earth pony connection is less obvious, true, but I feel that perhaps the sun and moon can be considered part of nature too.

Then we have lesser alicorns, which only have aspects of two pony races. Princess Cadance is a lesser alicorn, being half unicorn, half pegasus, but with no earth pony traits. And also Prince Blueblood. Yes, the prince is also an alicorn; he is half earth pony, half unicorn, with no pegasus traits. All the royals are alicorns of a sort. But of course, you must be wondering "is there a third lesser alicorn, one who is half earth pony, half pegasus?". Of course there is. Who do we know who has aspects of both races? A pegasus who has a connection to nature, to animals perhaps?

That's right: Fluttershy is the other Princess. She just doesn't know it yet. Why? I don't know. Perhaps her parents gave her up for adoption, or maybe they intend to only tell her when the time is right? Who knows?

Booooring. Fire is so 20 centuries ago. Atomization is the new thing. :smallsmile:

I've been thinking, since I live in a projected Isaac path, about how many Pegasi it would take to create a catagory 1 hurricane. 800 wingpower makes a tornado... so... all of them?

It took 80+ to make a tornado with insane directed suction. By herself Rainbow Dash can create a mini tornado. What's the reason for this discrepancy? It's the control behind the first tornado. It lifted the water up to a very specfic location with almost no spray. It also picked up a ton of water and was rather big. Rainbow Dash's mini tornado was smaller and less controlled, picking up up anything small and loose. It was also less powerful.

All in all I don't think it would take that many more pegasi then Ponyville has to create a category 1 hurricane. As long as they didn't have to control it.


Oh and I have it as head-canon that pony magic works under a resonance theory. The bonds between the ponies make their magic stronger then they would on their own when they are working together. The stronger the relationship between ponies also increases the strength of each other's magic. This was a big reason on why Fluttershy did so much better in the finale Hurricane Fluttershy. Her bond with Rainbow Dash helped increase her own wingpower while Rainbow Dash's own wingpower also increased.

Rainbow Dash's pep-talks were part of trying to increase the resonance rate between the Ponyville Pegasi. This also explains why Fluttershy seems to be a stronger flyer around Rainbow Dash in general.


Well that was a lot of head-canon

Terror Attack-2
Dear Princess Celestia,

Our plane had practically just arrived at base when we recived word that the aliens had launched an attack on Budapest. Even though that was right by Rarity's base, they requested for our squad to be sent in since they were still down a tank and had a wounded pony. We rushed to refuel and rearm as fast as possible and I take comfort in the fact that we launched again in record time.

Still Budapest was a mess. The Sectoids had launched a full out invasion and were slaughtering humans indiscriminately. Apparently the fact that the aliens had targeted Budapest threw off the human intelligence who were expecting an invasion in the Middle East, considering all the activity there. Personally I think that the humans don't know what they're doing. Its a good thing we're here to protect them.

The Sectoid invasion force was smaller then the last one. They had these weird cyber-disc tanks which took a lot of fire power to drop. They tended to explode when they were finished off too. They didn't prove to hard to defeat however as they were more interested in shooting at humans then protecting themselves against us.

The psionic attacks showed another appearence today as well. They targeted you initially and though you seemed to fight them off, you refused to join the battle in case they succeeded at a later date. They attacked me as well later on sending me into a panic. It was awful Celestia! My mind was filled full of images of Discord returning and Equestria being laid to waste. I was forced to watch as he turned you into a mockery of yourself. I collapsed crying, but luckily the mission went on without me.

Our tank was destroyed as it scouted though it soaked up an impressive amount of firepower first and dropped at least three of the aliens by itself. I'm not too clear on the final details of the battle but to my understanding Applejack's team was checking to see if we had finished off the last of the Sectoid forces when two of them literally appeared out of nowhere in the middle of the street. One was quickly gunned down and Big Mac shot the other, through one window, through a building, and through another window to the head. Somehow in the surprise somepony shot Princess Luna by mistake. It was a bad injury but Rainbow Dash and Cadance rushed in to apply some first aid. I suspect Shiny was the pony who shot her judging by his guilty expression. He won't talk to me about it though.

Princess Luna's injury was really bad though. They rushed her to the medical bay for surgery to remove the bullet. If it weren't for Rarity's armor it's likely that shot would have killed her. As a result Princess Luna is out injured for another twenty-three days. As before Fluttershy will be taking her position on the squad.

So far this month all of the attacks have been done by the Sectoids. I wonder if this is because we captured their friends? The humans won't talk about it but I overheard one of them muttering how the aliens have unlimited numbers and that we need something more to protect Earth. In good news a new base is under construction is someplace called China, near Hong Kong. I wonder who will be summoned to help guard that base?

*Squees* my favorite ship (albeit one I think quite unlikely). Twilight looks so happy in that picture, like getting to touch Rainbow's mane is the best thing ever.

Rainbow's mane is best mane ^^

I don't consider it unlikely, quite the opposite. Twilight and Dash are the only two who we know are the very best at what they do, not just in Ponyville but apparently all of Equestria, and perhaps even the best there has been in at least a thousand years, if Celestia's words are to be taken seriously.

They are both truly exceptional, one of a kind in their respective fields, likely to become legends. Their friends may be good at what they do, but we have no indication that they are the best in all of Equestria or anything at all close to that. Applejack didn't win a single first prize in Canterlot, for example. She's probably good, clearly the best rodeo pony in Ponyville, but she's not the best in all of Equestria.

So the way I see it, both Dash and Twilight may find it hard to find others who they can truly relate to and understand the way they could relate to each other. And with Dash's new love of reading they even have a common interest and an excuse to spend more time together.

I consider it one of the more realistic ships.

I don't think I've ever called it anything other than a VTOL. ("VTOL tank" isn't something that I've ever heard in wargames terminology.) But yes, it's essentially a VTOL gunship, as opposed to a grav tank (because some grav tanks, like the Strayvian ones, can fly (some, like the Cybertanks are more like hover tanks).


I think referring to anything as a VTOL is a bit odd. Vertical Take Off and Landing is an action something does not a description of what it is.

While I think gunship would apply to any moderate speed aircraft designed around taking out ground targets. In contrast to a flying tank it would still be faster, less heavily armored, more manuverable, and just generally still built like an aircraft.

Those are just my own opinions though.

All in all I don't think it would take that many more pegasi then Ponyville has to create a category 1 hurricane. As long as they didn't have to control it.

Also consider the storm they apparently whipped up effortlessly in Winter Wrap Up to clear all the snow and ice. I don't think they had a lot of control there, but it looked quite powerful to me.

I don't know. I'm not sure twilight is legendary in her field. Also, their relationship would be mostly long distance, as the nature of two people being professionals to that degree are by their nature self-focused. This is why flutterdash seems to work; because Fluttershy would prefer to be Dash's support.

Also, I took the last roundup as more being a nod to the evils of over-kindness. If Applebloom had said "that was great sis! But ya gotta get more clearance, y'all hit the bar, and didn't ya strike the barrel during the iron pony competition? We need to work on that" then things would have been grea. But nope! AJ made a mistake and it went unnoticed, uncorrected, until the judges.

I didn't say they were legendary now, but I would be very, very surprised if they didn't become legends. Being truly legendary is usually something you become after your death, or at least later in life, and they're still young and only starting to make a name for themselves.

As for distance, Equestria doesn't seem to be all that big for ponies, especially for a unicorn who can teleport like nopony's business and a pegasus who can probably fly across the length of Equestria in a few hours. They likely wouldn't have to move away from Ponyville at all to pursue their individual paths, and I doubt they would like to move away.

I'm sure Applejack could improve, maybe she could eventually work her way up to win first place with the right sort of encouragement and hard work as you say, but we still have no hint that she's naturally talented to the same degree. Dash and Twilight's extraordinary talent goes way beyond simply being driven and training hard.

Seriously, this is awesome. What's left over for Dash, though?

Dash actually had the first pony vehicle out of any of 'em. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=11838639&postcount=1322)

And still the fastest and most dangerous out of all of 'em, including those capital starships I sent to Charger.



(I think we can call the Scovocsper VTOL an unqualified success...!)

Those are just my own opinions though.

VTOL has become a generic term, especially in sci-fi, (like "laser" or "cannon" or, come to that "tank") generally meaning "helicopter-like flying craft that's not actually got rotors." I'm a little surprised you've not heard it in that context before, given how prevalent it is and has been for decades. "Attack VTOL" is more commonly used as opposed to "gunship"; indeed the latter is fairly rare in comparison, at least in my circles "attack helipcopter" is more usual - expecially since most choppers have more missiles than guns nowadays (and, of course, "gunship" have other meanings outside armed helicopters, which is probably why it's not as common in sci-fi.)

(See C&C, Halo, BattleTech, virtually every single sci-fi wargames manufacturer (except maybe GW), just to name some things of the top of my head etc etc.)

But terminology aside, nominally, yes, the Scovocsper is designed to fill a heliocopter gunship role, heavily armed and lightly armoured. (It might just be big enough to warrent being able to be fitted with starfighter shields, though.)

I personally hear gunship all the time, and never VTOL anything, so yeah, varies by circles I guess.

Soras Teva Gee
2012-08-24, 07:14 PM
I've heard it used in "VTOL craft" or "VTOL capablity" but not as a type/class name ever. Mind you I mostly have heard it from an IRL perspective where talking about the Harrier, Osprey, or F-35. And mostly being specific to the craft. While of course a helo is a helo.

Of course these days I mostly here gunship in reference to the AC-130 Spectre, and its really a cargo plane... a cargo plane that with a cargo of death!

Ah-hah hah I crack myself up sometimes.

Anyways more seriously gunship is a fluid term (afterall its originally naval) but back on topic I simply have never managed to here VTOL used like that so must be something you weirdoes across the pond are up to. And if it is being used like that I don't like it, it doesn't have the linguistic flair of radar and sonar.

When used in a modern military context, yes, it tends to refer to the very small number of fixed-wing aircraft that are capable of VTOL operations (though even then, most of them are functionally STOVL in normal use); helicopters are technically VTOLs, of course (which is why sci-fi co-opted the term for not-helicopter vehicles in the same role), but rarely called out as such specifically (since there aren't any non-VTOL helicopters - to my knowledge (and if there are, they'd be an exception, not the rule) - so the additional descriptor is unnecessary.

Given it's been well ingrained into sci-fi terminology (and especially for wargames) for over twenty odd years on both sides of the pond (see BattleTech (which is US), which has been calling VTOLs VTOLs since about 1985, well before even I started wargaming), it's about as stuck as it's going to get. S' one o' them things you're gonna have to live with, I'm afraid.

You misunderstand. If they are both legendary (and I still doubt Twilight is legendary in that sense; she might be revere upon death but Dash is a legend in her own mind right now) then FDA are Rey wot have time for each other. When Dash needs that nice hot bath drawn for her, after a hard day at the track, Sparkle is going to be in the middle of research. When Twilight needs her telescopes aligned just so, the slightest disturbance could be a problem so Dashie can't perform anywhere nearby.

They could be friends, but I can't see them being able to support each other.


I'm sure Applejack could improve, maybe she could eventually work her way up to win first place with the right sort of encouragement and hard work as you say, but we still have no hint that she's naturally talented to the same degree. Dash and Twilight's extraordinary talent goes way beyond simply being driven and training hard.

That's a good thing. Talent is an albatross aroun the neck. Dash has talent an it destroyed her career. She napped through flight school and is doing basic sky Janitor work for a Podunk hub town. That's not the career path of a Pegasus who earned what they have. She is good, but she is cocky, sloppy. That's why Dash isn't a wonder bolt.

You will note AJ had that same cockiness when she lost all those rodeo events. I'd like to think that was intentional.

Vote The Amish Party: less tyranny, more Bwuh?

I wish I could say this was the first time I've been unexpectedly and against my will elected to some position of power.


So, over at the LoL thread someponies brought up a webcomic talking of a Pony MOBA. So using LoL as basis what would be our pony's abilities?

example:

Pony: Fluttershy
Catagory: Support/Jungler

P: Hidden: when in bushes fluttershy gains increased mana and health regeneration
Q: Critters: One of Fluttershy's animals arrive at target location for 6 seconds (max 1 animal at rank one, 2 at rank three, 3 at rank five) Animal will prioritize target of fluttershy's auto attack or closest enemy units. 3 sec cooldown
W: Melodic Voice: heals target friendly unit. If one of Fluttershy's animal recieves heal, it applies a 1.5 sec movement speed slow to its next attack. 10 seconds Cooldown
E: Cheering: increase target friendly unit's movment and attack speed by 1.5 seconds 8 sec cooldown
R: Stare: all enemy units in a cone in front of Fluttershy are stunned for 2 seconds and takes damage 180/150/100 sec cooldown

Heh, I chuckled at that comic. But goodness gracious, coming up with a champion is harder than I thought. I'll have Twilight bouncing around my head all day, maybe I'll get something down later.

I see the Griffons as German except for that French Griffon chef, who was clearly French. I'm not sure why, probably some fanfiction or second hand impressions caused by others who had read fanfiction, since Gilda herself doesn't necessarily seem German. Pegasi were either Greek or Roman, hard to call, although if they were Greek they're more Spartan than Athenian.

I don't really see any other species as having their own nation. Dragons are more like marauding barbarians, dogs are too sparsely populated, and donkeys seem to me to just be an ethnicity of ponies, if you will.

using Decathalon as an example..you need not win one single event to win the overall competition
a steady performance of 2nd's and 3rd's will accumulate the points that a one event specialist will not get by winning once and then finishing other events in 7th for example

When used in a modern military context, yes, it tends to refer to the very small number of fixed-wing aircraft that are capable of VTOL operations (though even then, most of them are functionally STOVL in normal use); helicopters are technically VTOLs, of course (which is why sci-fi co-opted the term for not-helicopter vehicles in the same role), but rarely called out as such specifically (since there aren't any non-VTOL helicopters - to my knowledge (and if there are, they'd be an exception, not the rule) - so the additional descriptor is unnecessary.

Non VTOL helicopters are gyrocopters, or at least that's the only thing like them. Actually predate helos by a fair bit I seem to recall.



Given it's been well ingrained into sci-fi terminology (and especially for wargames) for over twenty odd years on both sides of the pond (see BattleTech (which is US), which has been calling VTOLs VTOLs since about 1985, well before even I started wargaming), it's about as stuck as it's going to get. S' one o' them things you're gonna have to live with, I'm afraid.

I'm by no means a broad sci-fi expert but well like I said I've never heard it used that way. The big two don't use the term, with speeder being the closest for one and no plantary combat craft existing for the other. Actually more I think about it if anything sci-fi air/space craft having the capability just seems to be assumed and you rarely see things needing a runway.

Its not that I'm sure there aren't examples, just that the designation of calling something "a VTOL" isn't anything like generic or in broad use. BattleTech is still quite niche and falls under wargaming for example, and nobody thinks of anything but the mechs from there like with anything mecha genre.


Speaking of THE GLORIOUS MOTHERLAND, what nationality do you all see the separate races aside from Equestria being? I mean this like "Equestria=England/America" type thing. Would the Griffons be like the ancient romans? Would the dogs be fascist German, or Russian?

Discussion Time!

The songs in Seasons 1 and 2 have had a wide variety of genres between them all. What genres have we not seen, and what character(s) would fit it the best and vise versa? For example, which character would be best for a rap? What kind of song would AJ be best suited for (perhaps aside from the obvious country/western).

The power armor is good but research, I think it's UFO Power Source, and you upgrade it. Are you still relying on basic human weaponry for your interceptors? You won't be able to take on the bigger ships until you upgrade, you were lucky that you managed to get that ship, which I think was a Terror ship, maybe an alien base ship. Hard to tell with the description of three floors, cyberdiscs, and what appears to be a blasterbomb launcher. If that's true be glad the AI sucks, they don't know how to shoot the blasterbomb up the gravlifts (they are gravlifts not teleporters), or there'd be no more Rarity and Vinyl.

Sectoids are one of two races that use psionics, though they aren't too good at it. Try to capture, it's usually a leader, to make your troops much better.

Nah, UFO Power Source is what lets you get Power Armor in the first place. Yeah unfortunately. I keep choosing alien techs that I think will give me an interceptor upgrade but get infantry stuff instead (Like Power Source). That ship landed so hey lucky me I guess.

Rarity says those were teleporters and who are we to argue? :smallbiggrin:
I was pretty lucky with the blasterbomb. It only fired twice and the second time it killed itself.

I did capture some but they went to Rarity's base where they could die instead of Twiilght's base. :smallyuk:

During the Terror Attack there just wasn't a good oppurtunity. I'll capture a leader eventually, but I won't put my ponies lives at risk for no reason to do so.

Ouch, most of your team has some pretty bad stats. When/if you can get it, maybe psyionics will make it up to you. Who knows.

If Twilight has the highest Psionic stat I may explode from happiness :smallbiggrin:


Rainbow's mane is best mane ^^

I don't consider it unlikely, quite the opposite. Twilight and Dash are the only two who we know are the very best at what they do, not just in Ponyville but apparently all of Equestria, and perhaps even the best there has been in at least a thousand years, if Celestia's words are to be taken seriously.

They are both truly exceptional, one of a kind in their respective fields, likely to become legends. Their friends may be good at what they do, but we have no indication that they are the best in all of Equestria or anything at all close to that. Applejack didn't win a single first prize in Canterlot, for example. She's probably good, clearly the best rodeo pony in Ponyville, but she's not the best in all of Equestria.

So the way I see it, both Dash and Twilight may find it hard to find others who they can truly relate to and understand the way they could relate to each other. And with Dash's new love of reading they even have a common interest and an excuse to spend more time together.

I consider it one of the more realistic ships.

Well it isn't a bad ship by any means. But all of them are already legendary as the Elements of Harmony. Rarity is likely to become very famous, if not legendary for her clothing as well.

As is I can see them getting along great as friends but lacking the time and energy to make a successful relationship. Furthermore their fields don't interact too much so they won't be working together at all.


I don't know. I'm not sure twilight is legendary in her field. Also, their relationship would be mostly long distance, as the nature of two people being professionals to that degree are by their nature self-focused. This is why flutterdash seems to work; because Fluttershy would prefer to be Dash's support.

Also, I took the last roundup as more being a nod to the evils of over-kindness. If Applebloom had said "that was great sis! But ya gotta get more clearance, y'all hit the bar, and didn't ya strike the barrel during the iron pony competition? We need to work on that" then things would have been grea. But nope! AJ made a mistake and it went unnoticed, uncorrected, until the judges.



I think Winter Wrap Up may be a friendship ritual, where the note town participates. It woul make it all stronger than the sum of its pony parts.

Same with running of the leaves, actually.

I do agree with the whole Flutterdash part. Paticularly for Rainbow Dash who gives me the impression that sometimes she wants to be spoiled by her partner. It could also work if the two were working together like for example Twilight and Celestia. If the two became partners in more then the relationship sense then that would also be a good sign for a relationship.

I disagree with the Twilight being legendary part. I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't already teaching classes around articles she's written, or teaching spells she has developed to a new generation. It's just that her actual appearance isn't very well known due to her total lack of public appearances in the past and ego in her work.

On the Applebloom part; really? Come on. It's her little sister who idolizes Applejack. She's not going to be able to give an impartial opinion on how Applejack does and its unrealistic to expect otherwise. She's too caught up in the fun and excitement to notice. She doesn't have the emotional maturity or experience to be that critical of Applejack when it comes to rodeo sports. Now if it was Twilight or Big Mac watching you'd have a point.


Speaking of THE GLORIOUS MOTHERLAND, what nationality do you all see the separate races aside from Equestria being? I mean this like "Equestria=England/America" type thing. Would the Griffons be like the ancient romans? Would the dogs be fascist German, or Russian?

New interceptors? That's easy, I'll spoil in case you want to find out yourself.
UFO Power Source -> UFO Navigation -> UFO Construction(Somewhere in here gets Flying Suits, basically slightly stronger power armor that can fly) -> New Fighter Craft(get it, it uses elerium as fuel though) -> Fighter/Trasnport (ignore) -> Ultimate Craft (In the words of Twilight: Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!)There may be a few steps also needed but I think it's for stuff like Elerium, which you should have covered already. Assuming you have the Elerium, get rid of your human-ships as soon as possible, if you haven't noticed you have to pay rent for them. You'll have to hold onto the Skyranger a bit longer though until you can get the best one.

That'd be great, I mean Psionics isn't too far removed from wizardry and magic right? I mean they both cast off of intelligence.

You misunderstand. If they are both legendary (and I still doubt Twilight is legendary in that sense; she might be revere upon death but Dash is a legend in her own mind right now) then FDA are Rey wot have time for each other. When Dash needs that nice hot bath drawn for her, after a hard day at the track, Sparkle is going to be in the middle of research. When Twilight needs her telescopes aligned just so, the slightest disturbance could be a problem so Dashie can't perform anywhere nearby.

They could be friends, but I can't see them being able to support each other.

I'm pretty sure Dash is also close to a legend to other minds already, and Twilight too for that matter (what Forum Explorer said), but that's a little besides the point so let's leave it aside.

No one said it had to be perfect. There will always be something to squabble over, and probably should be, in a healthy relationship. FlutterDash is also a great ship, one I've always loved, but don't tell me they wouldn't have some (potentially big) issues too.

My point is that none of their friends are quite like them, in terms of sheer innate talent and potential for becoming legends. It's like a highly educated genius with an IQ through the roof trying to find love among merely ordinary intellects with only basic education (please read on before you point out that this is exactly the case with TwiDash :smalltongue:). Or a billionaire ruling a multi-national company trying to date a secretary (for more than one night). I'm sure it can be done, but you generally don't see it. Part of this is that such people tend to move in particular circles where they meet people like themselves, so they date those kinds of people, but it's also because it's hard to relate to each other on a deeper level when you're so very different.

These examples don't translate perfectly to ponies and Equestria, but I hope they make the point.

For Twilight, someone like Celestia or Luna may be the only other ponies who could talk to her on a truly equal level. Rainbow Dash may not be super smart and highly educated, but she's in the same kind of situation and can relate. Also she's a close friend and same class, which is a boon compared to the princesses. And who knows, I'm sure Dash isn't a super genius, but I also get the impression she's far from stupid.

As for Dash, I'm not even sure the Wonderbolts can match her (at least in terms of pure potential, I'm sure they have much longer and better training and experience), which leaves her with no pony but Twilight, who may not be a pegasus but does have a similar situation.


That's a good thing. Talent is an albatross aroun the neck. Dash has talent an it destroyed her career. She napped through flight school and is doing basic sky Janitor work for a Podunk hub town. That's not the career path of a Pegasus who earned what they have. She is good, but she is cocky, sloppy. That's why Dash isn't a wonder bolt.

You will note AJ had that same cockiness when she lost all those rodeo events. I'd like to think that was intentional.

Yes, I'm sure Applejack is more hard working in a sense. Dash does tend to take it easy, sometimes. Although I also think she does actually train hard, too. Dash very much does things in bursts, training exceedingly hard for a time (harder than AJ), then sleeping the rest of the day. Applejack is more of a steady, continuous worker, working all day at a steady pace, although much of that is simply farm work which may occasionally be a kind of exercise, but isn't exactly focused rodeo training.

But this is all completely irrelevant to my point, because what I'm talking about is innate talent and potential, which Dash has in spades where Applejack is probably more average (but works hard). Dash doesn't have to work at all to be great (although she would have to work hard to become a true legend or to join the Wonderbolts) whereas Applejack wouldn't be particularly good if it wasn't because she worked hard all the time.


sure we do
Fluttershy is the World Champ at Shhhhh!

According to herself :smallwink: And it's not exactly something you become famous for (which of course is great if you're Shy), and it's not really a very ... demanding profession.

It doesn't exactly help her relate to Dash, is what I'm trying to say.


and Applejack if you remember won more ribbons than anyone else
using Decathalon as an example..you need not win one single event to win the overall competition
a steady performance of 2nd's and 3rd's will accumulate the points that a one event specialist will not get by winning once and then finishing other events in 7th for example

Applejack is good, she works hard and she deserves what she has earned. But aside from being hard working and maybe a little talented, she is not presented as being insanely talented from birth like Dash is.

Applejack may become an equal among the elite of rodeo ponies, but she's far from a legend. Maybe the best, but not the Best Ever! Dash is a born legend, all she needs is some discipline (which, I might add, Twilight has in abundance, making her a potentially excellent trainer also since she might know a lot about the theory which Dash wouldn't otherwise learn, like we saw in the running of the leaves)


Well it isn't a bad ship by any means. But all of them are already legendary as the Elements of Harmony. Rarity is likely to become very famous, if not legendary for her clothing as well.

As is I can see them getting along great as friends but lacking the time and energy to make a successful relationship. Furthermore their fields don't interact too much so they won't be working together at all.

Their friends, as I see it, may become legendary by association (because of the Elements), but not in their own rights. Rarity may become famous as a fashion designer, but we have no indication that she's THE best designer in all of Equestria or in the last 1000 years or anything like that. She may become an equal among the elite, but that's far from being a legend. Same with Applejack, as I said above.

Point of order: they should be legendary as the Elements. But as we saw in Sweet and Elite, they are apparently not widely known as such. Even Fancy Pants didn't seem to have any idea of who Rarity or Rainbow Dash was by name, nor does the set of "purple unicorn (who should be at least slightly known as the princess' personal protégé), pink earth pony, orange earth pony, blue-and-rainbow pegasus, yellow-and-pink pegasus" seem to have rung any bells.

Mind you I mostly have heard it from an IRL perspective where talking about the Harrier, Osprey, or F-35.

Incidently those being names of the meeting rooms at my jobsite. Kinda lame I say. :p Also, half of management was in the Navy or Airforce so they would probably agree with your statement about VTOL.

Sorry Cap, the ponies have already gotten you.



A more verbose answer to your initial question would be simply that it's got well-designed, three-dimensional characters, good stories, plenty of humour working at several levels, doesn't patronise it's (original intended) audience, excellent animation and superb musical talent.

If you are unaware, Lauren Faust, who did a lot of the initial design and world-building, has a lot of good credentials under her belt, like the Powerpuff Girls.

So what's the problem? Would you be surprised to find, say, a girl enjoying Transformers entertainment?

A great deal is determined by social constructs and ingrained expectations. And, unfortunately, one of those expectations seems to be "boys think things made for girls are stupid/worthless". But if you can overcome that, master yourself enough to look at things open-mindedly without regard to for whom they were made, I think you'll be a happier and better person than you are. And, honestly, a happier and better person than a lot of bronies; I've seen astonishing amounts of vitriol flung at all the previous-gen pony shows (some of which were actually quite good) and at the current iteration of Strawberry Shortcake, which was in the just-before-MLP timeslot in Season 2 and shared (shares? I haven't been keeping up on things...) several voice actors.

Speaking of things that will come in contact with you, the Cult's take over of the world just started five minutes ago.

Realy, Boffie, I am going to be honest and will suggest you take the first portal into another reality, mostly because this one is not going to last much longer. Well, for living things, anyway. In about a hour, the entire population of Equestria will be dead. Five minutes later, they will be revived as sentinent undead under the cult's control. Dont bother with running to Celestia, I dont know where she ended up. Nor Luna, but I will guess she's on the moon, willingly this time.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, died today. He was 82. :smallfrown:

I dunno about you guys, but Neil dying hit close to home with me, since I always dreamed of shaking his hand and becomkng an astronaut. My bucket list now has 1 more thing that I will never accomplish.

Perhaps you guys could honor him with pictures of Astronaut ponies/ponies in space? Just a suggestion though.

"Dude! I saw this killer cartoon!"

"What was it?"
It starts off with a prophecy, right? That an ancient evil will use the alignment of the stars to return, dethrone the god of the sun, and plunge the world Into eternal darkness and a reign of evil unparalleled."

"Pretty standard actually. You sure it's good?"
"Trust, bro! Trust.
Okay, so, the sungod's like, studen or disciple or whatever finds this prophecy, an is sent to a punk village in order to find... Something. Allies, they god is all very vague about it."

"Man, this sounds lame. Is this like, Adventure time?"
"Dude. Chill! Okay, so. So the student goes to this town, right? And meets a bunch of othe characters, and it's all pretty funny and slapstick. It's got a lot of depth, and the student's like, assistant or brother or some shiz falls in love with one, and like the farmer has a billion cousins nudge nudge wink wink, and then! The town is having like a once a year celebration for te solstice or something, but the sun god is actually coming to visit the town this time so it's huge!"

"Oh, hey I see. You're joshing me! I played this campaign. It has Pelor and--"
"Dude, no! Just listen, alright?"

"Okay, okay! Geeze..."
"alright, so. So the festivalComes, but instead of like, the sun rise, an evil goddess shows up and tells them the sun god is captured and they are all. So. Screwed! So the student gathers a ragtag bunch of misfits, which you know means they're bass-ass, and decides to storm the thousand year old abandoned castle in the cursed woods while beset by the eldritch powers of a dark and vengeful kami."

"Kami? Like in DBZ?"
"... Dude. Read a damn book every now and then. No, like a spirit or a god! I was being poetic, you philistine."

"Uh, I'm from Chicago, bro. Not the philistines."
"You're dumb.

"Moving on! Okay, so they go through this like, cursed forest, and it tests all their virtues. The farmer is all like, integrity and stuff, so they get put into a situation that tests whether the others trust her, and--"

"woah, wait. 'Her'?"
:smallannoyed:

"Okay! Geeze..."
" And then like, they get are psychically attacked by tree demons, and there's this brutal manticore fight and the token soft, girly character just ****in' like JUMPKICKS IT IN THE FACE, even. And one of the characters that's as set up for Humor? Totally just like, hits them with the fridge logic and fixes the problem and tames te manticore. And their fighter is almost recruited by the evil army, but sides with good over personal gain, you know, pretty standard stuff right? Until the showdown.

"See, they are seeking the mcguffin the sungod once used to imprison the dark goddess, and they find it... In the evil one's lair. Suddenly, they--"

"Hmm. Gravity Falls maybe? Or that French thing made with flash?"
BRO I AM TALKING

*zipping motion*
"Okay, so. So they get set for a scuffle, but then the bad guy totally just ports the student and the artifact across to a different tower and hella darts winning the fight. But the student thinks, and then charges! And uses the same teleport the dark god just did, see, because the student is smart and figured that out, and then grabs the artifact... An you have to watch the rest, it's pretty cool. There are a couple twists, and the characters are really well done, the jokes are good, and the animation is smooth like a criminal."

"... Like a criminal? Really?"
"Hey, MJ used to be funny..."

And there you have it. At this point, we've taken 95% of the members Children of Nightmare into custody, destroyed most of your allies, and you yourself managed to neutralize the only mage your cult has with the power to go hoof-to-hoof with the professor. And with Charnel separated from the rest of the cult, it will be simple to send her back to the elemental plane of fire to be with her mother. You were right about one thing though...
*appears behind Nightcore*
This is over.
*Igor hops out of a portal infront of Nightcore and grabs her by the throat*
OOK!
One of the drawbacks to sonic magic is that you can't cast it if your ability to speak is impaired. Don't bother trying to struggle, either. Thanks to the professor's "improvements", Igor is easily three times stronger than any pony we've ever encountered. *turns to Igor* If she so much as blinks, I want you to rip her horn off.

Speaking of things that will come in contact with you, the Cult's take over of the world just started five minutes ago.

You might want to look outside.

The sun has basicly been converted into a giant ball of negitive energy. Actualy, you probably should not go outside. Realy, Boffie, I am going to be honest and will suggest you take the first portal into another reality, mostly because this one is not going to last much longer. Well, for living things, anyway. In about a hour, the entire population of Equestria will be dead. Five minutes later, they will be revived as sentinent undead under the cult's control. Dont bother with running to Celestia, I dont know where she ended up. Nor Luna, but I will guess she's on the moon, willingly this time.


Guess what?



I won.

You two finally getting somewhere?
I hope you realise that right now, because of the sheer amount of excess magical background energy you're flooding equestria with that I am quite litterally tripping balls (http://youtu.be/yzC4hFK5P3g) here.

I should really go for a detoxifying lie-down in a quiet part of the Darkspire, but I'd hate to miss your thrilling little conclusion.

Also, I think the Commander covered the answer to Captain Obvious well enough, though I must disagree on the subject of stages. There isn't really any such thing, no matter how amusing the charts can seem.

Edit - Wait, Count Von-Count has gone? Oh man. Now THERE is some serious bad news.

Hey guys. I'm sorry if I kinda ruin the mood of the post for a second or two, but I wanted to let you guys know that I checked the BBC a few minutes ago...

Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, died today. He was 82. :smallfrown:

I dunno about you guys, but Neil dying hit close to home with me, since I always dreamed of shaking his hand and becomkng an astronaut. My bucket list now has 1 more thing that I will never accomplish.

Perhaps you guys could honor him with pictures of Astronaut ponies/ponies in space? Just a suggestion though.

A sad day indeed. Sadder still that as the years go on, we might once again see a day when no living man has walked on the surface of another world.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, died today. He was 82. :smallfrown:

A sad day indeed.

I, and the crews on the entire Bleak Despair Sector Fleet, salute you, Neil Armstrong.

*salute*
*salute*
*salute*

May your journey on reach new stars.


And the voice of Count VonCount died yesterday. These are dark times.

...

...

And so, doubly sad. The last and only Vampire that didn't actually deserve staking passes.

In honour, then, in my own Lichy way, allow me to post an image of the Count that I found the most amusing, and one that now we shall not come to see pass in actuality.

Yes, those of you who know me, I'm pretty sure you can guess what's coming...

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lll29jmmuz1qf64jao1_500.jpg

...

Yet, no even I cannot fully maintain my levity... I think I feel a bit more of a personal connection to the Count and thus to Jerry Nelson, as Maxronaut does to Neil Armstrong; the muppets were part of my childhood from a very early age.

It wasn't long ago, maybe only a year or so, that BBC Radio 4 did an interview with Count. Seriously, it was on a regular financial program or something. I'd never listen to something like that normally, but it was advertised, so I thought, "I can't miss this!" You don't hear that sort of thing very often, do you? The chap doing the interview treated it with the same gravity as he would anyone else, aside from the fact he was clearly trying not fangasm... They even did a little segment on what happens when you interview a muppet, which was interesting in it's own right.

We are indeed diminished by both their passings.

This game sounds incredibly interesting. Is this an emulator or is there some other way to go about obtaining it?


You can obtain it through Steam. It comes prepackaged in DOSBOX, so no config needed.

Its only something like 5 bucks as well.


Point of order: they should be legendary as the Elements. But as we saw in Sweet and Elite, they are apparently not widely known as such. Even Fancy Pants didn't seem to have any idea of who Rarity or Rainbow Dash was by name, nor does the set of "purple unicorn (who should be at least slightly known as the princess' personal protégé), pink earth pony, orange earth pony, blue-and-rainbow pegasus, yellow-and-pink pegasus" seem to have rung any bells.

(Why is it that it seems like every time I respond to something you say I start with "point of order"?)

I'm half convinced that the nobles are too stuck up to notice. I mean there is a literal window dedicated to their victory not to mention the giant ceremony.

Make that two windows. Do they just not enter the throne room or something?


Hey for that prophecy did it ever occur to anyone that 'the stars shall aid in her escape' referred to Luna being freed with Twilight's help? (Since she has stars for a cutie mark.)

One last word of warning, though. I'm going to personally see to it that you are upgraded to a Class-V threat. That means that, should you ever return to Equestria, you will promptly be hunted down by the Elements of Harmony, and if they can't deal with you, then Boffinspark will be taken off his leash. Keep that in mind. *Regeln and Igor leave via portal*

The RP in this thread is getting remarkably tedious.

We have a perfectly good freeform RP subforum (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=32), and you've been asked by the mods to take it elsewhere. Please do so.

My only comment to you is that warning seemed to be over... 15 days, and at least 3 threads ago. Not that it isn't worth respecting, but it seems like the Mods might have said something a bit more recent or done something if they still considered it a problem.

The actual reason I'm posting is to say this: You guys pick -the- most obscure names. 525.600 Ponies? That just seems.... odd. Even for you people.

Personally, I took that to mean;
- don't have posts that are just RP
- keep it spoiler'd
- keep it respectful

As opposed to NO RP NOT NOW NOT EVER. But I suppose we should ask.

Well, KPenguin has been in and out of the thread repeatedly since then, I think.

Though, far as I can see, given the current state of the interminable Boffinspark / Silent Night thing, it's possibly time to say "The End" or finally allow it to graduate to it's own thread in the Freeform RP section, because when the sun is transformed into wildly opposing energy forms twice at least within the space of a single post-and-response, it's probably time to admit it's grown too big to sit around as mere background colour. :smallsmile:

KPenguin not having seen it does not mean its okay. I fouls that out with "but I've posted semi-saucy pictures before!". Luckily that sounds like hyperbole. <_<

That does, admittedly, deviate so wildly from anything established for my little pony whatsoever that your inherent quadrupedalness does not make it relevant enough for the thread. Well, for being a mainstay of the thread; we don't really have a specific number of degrees separation before something is non-pony.

What are the Equestrian equivalents of major spectator sports? Are there separate sports for each race? One major sport which requires specific race combinations? How would this sport work?

I envision a major sport would be something like team handball, and unicorns can only use magic if they are the goalie. That way Unicorns and Pegasi don't have an overwhelming advantage, since they cannot move while they have the ball.

A cool unicorn activity to me would be war games like Warhammer where the board pieces are animated by the Unicorns.

Horse-race gambling.

Two sports - or, at least, entertainments - in one: some ponies race, and others bet on how well they'll do.

Not a wholesome trotting-race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the... I don't actually have any idea how to adapt that.

That whole thing was amusing. But this, this line right here, pure beauty.


A sad day indeed. Sadder still that as the years go on, we might once again see a day when no living man has walked on the surface of another world.

This is only true because we're getting really good at shooting giant robots around.

That said, both losses are sad, and I'm glad to see ponythread remembering them.

I don't see it playing out that way. I think Dash would take being called boring as a personal affront, and instead of feeling bad alone afterwards, she'd call the filly back over and come up with something fun to do instead.

I actually would guess that horseraces aren't especially popular, in the same way that track and field is only popular in the real world during the Olympics. I would guess there is some kind of Pegasus game that is something like soccer+Quidditch. It would also be pretty cool if there was a unicorn-style basketball game where everypony is teleporting all over the place and levitating the ball around as they go back and forth trying to score. Also, we've seen American footballs (Applejack and Dash kicked them during Running of the Leaves) so something like that exists.

Well time for the darkest LP update yet! Don't worry nopony died but....

UFO-21
Dear Princess Celestia,

I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to the aliens were controlling me! And you don't need to worry about me. I know you were only being controlled and you didn't want to harm me. I could see it in your eyes.

What? Yes I know you can hear me, you've got the bed beside me remember? I don't think it's hypocritical at all! You're Princess Celestia and shooting at you is the worst thing I could ever do! I'm just a normal pony.

T-thank you Princess-I mean Celestia. I-um. I didn't realize I was so important to you. :smallredface: Well, s-sorry again.

Yes I have written that all done why? Well the parts I've spoken anyways.

If you want I can scribble it out.

Alright if you're sure.

Ahem. Now where was I?

Right. Today the humans discovered an alien base in the Middle East. They must of set it up during that big wave of ships. Our squad was in better condition then Rarity's so we were sent in. On the way a large UFO was spotted heading towards the base. It landed nearby and began to ferry supplies to the base. The humans decided that we should take out the UFO first and attack the base later.

This mission was a literal nightmare. Honestly I never should have moved in after that first mental attack. But they didn't attack for a little while so I decided to risk it. I'm sorry.

Sorry sorry! Won't happen again I promise Prin- I mean Celestia. So we clear out the guards in front, with Rainbow Dash dropping two and Pinkie dropping one. Then we split into three groups. One group holding the ship consisting of everypony without armor plus our tank, one group of you, me and Applejack, and Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie in the last group. They took one entrance while we took the other.

Applejack went ahead when the two of us more or less went crazy just inside the entrance. You tried dropping me initially with the stun rod but I am apparently immune to electricity, since you tired again later when you briefly broke free of their control. While we were in their control we were forced to fire upon each other again and again. It was awful. That's all I'm going to say about that. Well I can't remember too much of it to be sure, but it's haunted my dreams since. I do remember Fluttershy rushing in with my medikit and treating our injuries.

Meanwhile Pinkie and Rainbow Dash had a great time. Well so Rainbow Dash won't shut up about. Apparently they handled it like it was nothing, just Pinkie gunning down aliens left and right while she dodged the bullets and captured them with her bare hooves. And not her stun rod. Anyways that part of the ship was the Sectoid's main living quarters.

Applejack on the other hand just calmly walked through the ship. She went through one door, zapped the Sectoid right in front. Waited a bit, reopen the door and zapped it's friend that came to help it. She then calmly walked through the corridors til one of the aliens blew itself up again. She was only partially caught in the blast and entirely unharmed. She then walked in and zapped the leader.

The humans were pretty ecstatic about that. We've finally captured aleader and research has begun on it. I'm not sure why.

Okay how was that?

Thanks Celestia.

Sure I'll stop writing now.

Both Twilight and Celestia are wounded for a good ten days. And I'm not sure what to do about the alien base. Should I send in Rarity's team even though they can't take prisoners? Can Twilight's team even take prisoners now? What happens when you fill up a containment center? Should I wait the ten days?

You definitely want to wait until you can capture more aliens, You'll need to capture commanders at one point anyways. Probably will want to recover/research Stun Bombs if you haven't already; it's a lot safer and easier than stun rods.

For your sake, I hope it's either a Muton(as they're generally easy, alongside their terror unit), or Floater(as they're pretty much the weakest, and their terror unit isn't too much of a threat either) base. May *deity* have mercy on your soul if it's a snakeman(because of the terror unit) or Ethereal(not going to spoil them if you haven't met them) base. Sectoids are kinda middleish on whether you want to do a base of them.

You'll want to upgrade your tanks before you consider attacking too. To at least a LaserTank, if not a Hover-Plasma (can give research tree if you want). I'm working off the assumption you are using requisitioned tanks. Training psionics may not be to bad of an idea either, if you are willing to wait long enough to start the program before attacking (that's looking at the realm of 2 months before you'd be willing, it is worth it though).

Well considering the Sectoid 'theme' of this month I'm almost positive that it's going to be a Sectoid base.

So what does happen when you fill up an Alien Containment Facility? Are the old ones just kicked out?

I don't think I will upgrade my tanks before going in. Well unless that just leads me to getting curbstomped. I'm definatly not waiting for psionics to come in. 2 months is far too long.

Not sure, I never really have filled Containments for some reason, I think you can sell the live aliens just like the corpses, not sure. If the base is close enough, you can pick off it's supply ships and keep the nations happy while you build your forces. Be careful, bases are a whole nother ballgame compared to Terror missions, or any crashed/landed ship you've had to deal with.

Edit,I think researching the aliens cleans up your containment unit.

Also how early are bases normally found. You're talking about all this crazy research like laser tanks but I'm only in the third month of the game.

Well, from the show at least, ponies do enjoy watching the races. Wasn't there a scene in Sweet and Elite where Rarity was watching the Wonderbolts race? And lets not forget Fall Weather Friends, where a good chunk of the episode was dedicated to the Running of the Leaves, a big 'ol race. Also the fact that Rainbow Dash seems to favor solving all of her problems with racing, such as choosing a pet and dealing with bullies.

As for other sports, no idea. I can see something like Air Ball (http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Airball)from Avatar working out with Pegasus and Unicorns. Couldn't find a video of it, but for those of you with netflix or the dvds, it is in the third episode. Basically, the participants stand on tiny pegs in the ground and use magical air bursts to shoot a ball through a goal.

In my experience, bases come in a bit later.

Laser tanks can be gotten in the first month(exaggerating a little, but not much I think). Just follow this upgrade tree.
Laser Pistol -> Laser Rifle -> Heavy Laser(I believe this is what unlocks it for manufacture) -> Laser Cannon (good for ships) -> Laser Defense (mostly for the points you get for completing research).

Have a minor image dump, since I've been mostly talking about xcom.

Why use it now, you ask? Well, this is thread 52 and there are 52 weeks in a year. Since thread 12 already passed already, and thread 365 (and 1/4) is a ways away, this seemed like a good time.

..... Yeah, that's esoteric as ****.


This is nothing compared to last summer, when it was not uncommon to see 10+ pages go by in a single day. And lets not forget the time when everyone decided to see if it was possible to fill an entire thread in one day. It failed, they only got what, 30, 40 pages?

Psh. I doubt you guys couldn't fill up a thread if you really wanted to. Must have been a hell of a show to watch.

Also, I just saw the part of this thread involving Captain Obvious and Co. You guys enjoy the assimilating as much as you enjoy the show, I'm sure.

Hey, Forum Explorer. I've gotta ask you something.

Is XCOM enjoyable? If so, is it enjoyable enough that I should go out & pre-order the newest one? :smallconfused:

The mods yelled at us! :smallbiggrin: It was basically within 3 threads when I joined (which places this event about 30 threads ago, if I remember everything correctly). I basically missed it since I think I was at Six Flags(amusement park, for any outside the north-east US area) that day, and I wasn't liking the idea of catching up on thirty pages. I'm a bit more active now, so I probably would participate/read through it all.

I'm having a blast with it. But I do love strategy games. However the very best part of it is that I can change the character's names (and thus ponify them.) If you do get the newest X-com you have to make sure to change the names to something/someone you care about and the game just gets that much more intense.

Reminds me of the time when I ran a X-COM game based on ponythreaders. If I recall correctly, only kpenguin (who later became high commander) and one other ponythreader which I couldn't quite remember the name managed to keep their skins intact through my run in the game. The rest of you had a turn (or more) in the cloning vats.

So a change of subject is needed? Time for some more DISCUSSION TIME!

What are the Equestrian equivalents of major spectator sports? Are there separate sports for each race? One major sport which requires specific race combinations? How would this sport work?

GO!
I'm imagining something like professional bending in Legend of Korra. One of each pony type on each team and the objective is to knock the opposing team out of the ring. Earth ponies get something to buck at the opponents, pegasi use gusts of wind, and unicorns can use magic blasts. Fun for all the family, and one of the few games where all three pony types would have equal parts to play without having to refrain from using their natural abilities.


I attended, and actually wrote a report of the first day (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13747645&postcount=905) for ponythread. To borrow the words of our favorite polychromatic pegasus, it was /)^3^(\ So Awesome!

In the IRC, two of the pegasus PCs have played a game where they both spin up mini-twisters and send them at each other, battling tops style.

The Modguin: Persistent roleplay in the discussion forums are generally discouraged. If you have a long running roleplay that's grown beyond the vague bounds of a silly aside, it would be best to move it to the freeform RP forum.

I don't mind the RP, I just skip right over any and all of it. I would ask that people explicitly tag is as RP, though, by putting "RP" or something equally informative as the first thing above the spoiler, because when I see a spoiler with a silly title I might expect it to contain a picture, and get disappointed when I open it and get RP instead.

Everyone is a stereotype if you ignore their depth. RD is a jock. AJ is a hick. Fluttershy is an anime convention chick. Rarity is a faux-sionista. Twilight Sparkle is a nerd. Pinkie is a druggy. Spike is a dudebro.

You mean lesbian by the way, right? It's unfortunate that she is stereotyped as liking girls just because of her rainbow colors? That is indeed somewhat coincidental, but no more so than a pony being named cloud kicker and growing up to Kick clouds. And the whole "butch because sports" thing doesn't pan out, as I have arguedn vehemently and successfully that Dashie is one f the girlier ponies.

Personally, I'd be leery of them saddling her with a boyfriend just because. "Look! She's not a lesbian! She likes man parts! You don't have to worry about what message we might be sending" when sending those messages of nonconformity being okay is part of the appeal.

And sorry for laughing, by the way. Your timing was just that exquisite. I read something about an RD boyfriend hoax, refresh the page and BAM. Put a smile on my face, but my neighbors are probably not thrilled to wake up to hyena laughter. :smallbiggrin:

Oh, I'm fully aware of that, the characters are quite stereotypical, but in a positive sort of way. For example, Twilight is an intelligent nerd because she's an intelligent nerd. Now, If RD was a lesbian, she would be perceived by many people to be a tomboy-ish character with a rainbow mane because she was a lesbian... if that makes sense.
Remember that article claiming that Rainbow Dash was promoting a lesbian stereotype? Well, the problem with that article was that it was complaining about her being a lesbian stereotype when in fact, the show never even suggested that she was a lesbian. The article simply complained about her being a lesbian stereotype going on the assumption that she was a lesbian BECAUSE of her characteristics in the show. So, the writer complained about her own assumption of the character, rather then actual character.
Now, if RD really was a Lesbian, then it might make this kind of criticism more relevant.

On a related note, I'd actually like to see queer relationships in the show, as long as they treat it in the same way they would treat a heterosexual relationship, like Adventure Time did. Rather then "ERMAHGERD A GAY COUPLE. WE MUST TREAT THEM EQUALLY. DEHR PRINCESS CELESTA, I LERN GAYS R PPL TOO." :smalltongue:

And that's fine. :P

Honestly, given who the official target audience is and how things aimed at them have been targeted in the past, I'd be very surprised if we got any kind of genuine relationship stuff beyond what we've already seen with Rarity's Blueblood fantasies and the S2 wedding.

Which is not to say they shouldn't do such a thing, but I doubt they will.

Problem is Hasbro wants no trouble from said target audience's parents, who actually have the money to buy pony related products and some wouldn't appreciate a character that challenged their moral beliefs (or they simply don't think such a character is suitable in a show for impressionable children).

You saw the fuss raised over Derpy speaking. A gay character on a show for young children would draw out all sorts of people spewing noncense about the "moral degradation of society" and "the corruption of the youth"

This, although something more strong than 'leery'. Of course one could always say she's bi (which is sort of my view on the matter right now), but it'd still kinda ruin things for a lot of people.

I kinda hope and expect that they don't give any of the mane 6, sans possibly Rarity, a boyfriend. Just to leave everyone happy. It's the best and safest option.

I especially don't want them to give Dash a romance, because I know it ain't going to be another girl, not until pigs fly and hell freezes over. Sadly, but I fear that's reality.

Edit: I would of course like to be proven wrong, and see them do a canon lesbian ship, but it should probably be Lyra and BonBon, to be honest.

Well, maybe they could do it in the final season, when it's already been decided to not continue the series. Not bloody likely, of course.

I guess I'd just love to see the world go up in flames like that, it would be awesome. People need controversy, a good kick in the values every now and then. :smallbiggrin: And I don't think the show would have to shut down, actually. It'd lose some, but also gain some. It wouldn't be win-win, but it would definitely gain respect and publicity.

Of course, again, Hasbro has no interest in that sort of publicity, I'm sure.

I'm having a blast with it. But I do love strategy games. However the very best part of it is that I can change the character's names (and thus ponify them.) If you do get the newest X-com you have to make sure to change the names to something/someone you care about and the game just gets that much more intense.

IT SHALL BE DONE.

BTW, have you ever thought about making a ponified fanfic version of XCOM with those notes you've been writing? I'd read it. /)*3*(\

And I really hope they give her a girlfriend at some point, because they could do so much good with a strong gay character example for the target audience.

This. So much this.

Even if Hasbro and the writers steer away from giving the Mane 6 boyfriend/girlfriends, nodding to some of the background ponies relationships would be nice. Maybe an episode where Bon Bon is looking for the perfect anniversary present for Lyra [the answer is pants], where the focus is less on "look, they are lesbians woo!" and more on "these two ponies love each other and have a strong healthy relationship, albeit they happen to be both female."

Yeah. Haters be damned, that would be nice and sweet.


"... albeit they happen to be both female."

As long as they don't mention that part explicitly, to not make it look like it's a big deal. If you start mentioning that they're both female, you make a deal out of it.

Yeah, that is what I meant to say in my own hamfisted way. Basically meant, showcase the relationship: don't just highlight it in such a way that the relationship isn't the important part, but that the spectacle of WHO is in the relationship is the important part.

Since no matter how I write it it looks like I am brute forcing it, lets just say I agree with your sentiments.

I rather not have the show shut down over protests of encouraging same-sex partnership. Am I not wrong in saying that Americans are still very leery of this issue?

I'm with Grif on this one. If they do give Dash a girlfriend, which I'm not against in the slightest, then it'll probably be the whole Derpy fiasco all over again. Only this time it'll be 10K x worse, & they may be forced to edit/cancel a good episode. If somepony gets really pissed, the entire show may be cancelled.

That's how stupid Americans can be, & it sucks to be one of them sometimes. :smallannoyed:

Also, millions upon millions of fanfics will be altered or all out destroyed. :smalltongue:

Unfortunately yes. And the sad fact remains that while Gay characters feature normally in many television shows, and they are taking a few tentative strides into shows for slightly younger audiences (as I'm hearing is the case with adventure time) the fact remains that so many people (read: bigots) believe that if children believe Homosexuality is a normal thing on television, they may *gasp* accept it in real life, or be encouraged to become homosexuals themselves.

When you couple this with the fact that across America many of us get in arms about a company or authority figure publically endorsing same sex marriage, it's understandable why Hasbro wouldn't want to touch this issue with a ten foot pole.

I should probably stop here before I start getting too into religion and politics.

In other news, what magical creatures do you think/ hope will feature in upcoming seasons?

I predict that we might see a sphinx, classic riddling guardians make good obstacles for cartoons.

Yes, because nobody EVER gets up in arms about endorsing heterosexual marriages. Especially not when they're only supporting one, not putting down the other. That would be dumb. cough-eatmorchikin-cough

I personally think it's already happened. Just they can explicitly come out and say it, and must always have some level of deniability. So that's why we've gotten so many FlutterDash hints. If anyone was to accuse them and try and start an uproar they could go "Hey I don't know what you are talking about. You read that into the show, they could just be good friends." And thus they dodge the controversy compleatly!



IT SHALL BE DONE.

Yeah I have. Right now I'm thinking that I'll make a fanfic based on these notes, but not held so strictly to the gameplay like the notes have been. But only when I've finished the game so I know if it will have a downer ending or not

Anyways, er, looks like RP has been banished... after everything exploded. And stuff. ._. Funky stuff, guys, funky stuff.

No, see, breif RP style silliness is still fine as far as I can tell. It's just persistant RP quite specifically like the Pokonic/Alabenson Children of Nightmare Vs Boffinspark and Co feud that needs to branch off into it's own full-grown thread.

Also, I definately suspect there is a chance that Flutterdash is following the Mystique/Destiny route of obvious but plausibly deniable.

That sounds awesome! I wonder how that would work with griffons. I posit they have more horsepower but drastically less finesse.
My take is that griffons are good at soaring and diving, but don't turn as tightly as the smaller, shorter-winged pegasi.

And I've believed in Lyra and Bon Bon as a couple since the Season One poster, but Putting Your Hoof Down really reinforced that in my mind.

On the subject of the show and same-sex relationships:
I would be fine with it appearing in the show, but it would probably cause a media ****storm Hasbro would very much like to avoid. While there have been some steps toward the subject of younger audiences (From what I heard Paranorman has a gay character, but that is a movie, not a TV show) , it could still be quite messy for the show if they tried something. They could probably get away with a Lyra/Bon-Bon pairing in the background as long as they didn't show anything blatant though.

On the subject of what fantasy creatures we hope to see in future seasons:
I would love to see golems (They're like magical robots! :smalltongue: ), dracoliches, or gargoyles appear in the show at some point.

Yeah plausible deniability is the critical thing. You can do anything you want, as long as you can respond to any protest with "I have no idea what you're talking about" and have people believe you.

To elaborate, even though you clearly get what I'm talking about;

The specifics of the Mystique/Destiny thing in X-Men was that of course they were an item, and they were always meant to be. They just couldn't actually say it, because those higher up and the comics code or whatever would have had issue (whereas the audience almost certainly wouldn't and apparently didn't).

Which is to say, if that is the case here, it's not so much that they would be leaving it open to interpretation as simply not confirming it. That way people like Hasbro or critics and pressure groups don't get involved, whilst it being relatively obvious to the fans who have no problem with the idea. Like how Applejack's parents are almost certainly dead, but it will never be confirmed either way (though they clearly are). Because if they don't try to write in specific mention of it, the higher ups aren't likely to make them contradict it.

Re: Dracoliches - That seems unlikely purely because of how grim that would be.
But weren't zombies mentioned at some point in the show? Which would mean that the concept wouldn't be impossible in the setting, (even if there are no actual zombies in the setting).

On a related note, I'd actually like to see queer relationships in the show, as long as they treat it in the same way they would treat a heterosexual relationship, like Adventure Time did. Rather then "ERMAHGERD A GAY COUPLE. WE MUST TREAT THEM EQUALLY. DEHR PRINCESS CELESTA, I LERN GAYS R PPL TOO." :smalltongue:

And that's fine. :P

Far above all my other hopes for season three flies the mist veiled appearance of gersberms pony. And no, Twist does not count. Twist is worst pony.

Because if they don't try to write in specific mention of it, the higher ups aren't likely to make them contradict it.

I should point out this example has subtle factual inaccuracies:


Q: Where are Applejack's parents?

To put it bluntly, we just never figured it out. I just liked the feeling of them living with their Granny, but keeping the family dynamic tight and small. To be honest, I would like to simply say that they passed away somehow, but it's just it would have likely been deemed too sad for a kids' show and I don't think it would have ever been approved. There was brief discussion of them being traveling salesponies or explorers, but since we never needed the information in an episode, nothing was ever made official. So it will have to remain a mystery until someone decides to define it.

In effect she never asked or came up with an answer that merely not being communicated. Whether this is the same thing is somewhat interpretative.



And now for something comepletely different and silly

Like I said this is what I think has already pretty much happened.

Zombies were mentioned and I believe immediately rebutted with "Zombies aren't real!" So I imagine Zombies exist like they do in our world.

Chapter 2 of II is nearly done, it's fairly short. I'm going to do final edits and then publish it tomorrow, once I've had some sleep, but I'd love some second thoughts before then. Anything, even if it's just 'it was good'. I'm sure there's plenty that could be improved, though.
