    Here's an idea--group the side threads by when they fall in between the main missions?

    Yay, cause I stopped updating that MW stuff a bit ago. ^^;

    I love my new Google Rose. I can track SO MUCH MORE and it does some of the math for me. honestly all it's missing is one of those formulas to calculate falling/collision damage.

    Wait... 1x magnification means that it's one hundred percent stronger? It looks like I was wrong DKS. The goggles have magnification (1x).

    Love would want to play with the happy rocks, but she doesn't know magic. She'll send them off to friendbutt, I guess.

    Aww, come on! You're the Jamie to my Adam. We're gonna blow some rocks up and learn about them! Remember, the difference between science and screwing around is writing it down. :D

    Wait... Adam is the fun one! I'd rather be Sparky. Sparky knows what's up in life.

    Alright, there is no way Love isn't going to mess with exploding rocks, but she can't look crazy in front of the new crew. The explosions are a medical tool to help treat Keg's stress. Really, it'd be unethical to not blow them up.

    To the point that Rip beat me to the punch. I've been tweaking a very similar speech for Sniper to give, talking about what it's like to be him, for a while. Then Rip goes and steals my thunder.

    So, hey, let's let Feral and Rip talk. It's a disaster in the making!

    Also, heh. Haven't we all wondered the same thing?

    A little more gore on the fangs, perhaps?

    Sad thing is that she's detailing Sniper's entire existence. Milt's got it pegged pretty well.

    Oh phew! I was feeling bad all morning when you wrote someone didn't let Sniper get in a word edgewise and I thought you meant me.

    No? I've been mostly wondering if Chrysalis is gonna die in her quest for revenge against Lars, and if Rose will even see her before that. A friend who lurks here for the story gave me a good idea on how to leave Chrysalis a note if we successfully raid this secret base of Hyper Thought. An effort to hopefully get Chryssi to rethink her plans and come to her senses that her method is probably not the best one.

    You two aren't going to break out into One Headlight are you? Sigh, If we didn't meet Blue mountain in the previous mission, Rose would be examining Rip's chest for an artificial heart. As it is, I think Rose has some questions on for Cadance on what she's doing in rip's head, and maybe Rose will be looking up some psychiatrists to help Rip out. buy her some mental health.

    That was one of my usual fourth-wall-leans. Rose looked to Sniper for help and then kept right on talking.

    How does Cadence forcing ponies to fall in love translate to Chrysalis?

    We can leave a note, but it'll probably be demolished by scavengers long before Chrysalis sees it. Further... I don't think we're going to change Chrysalis' mind about this.

    Rose: *stops taking notes and silently winces at the idea*

    Nope. Although, that's not a bad idea regardless.

    Sniper is toying with the idea of finding out just how far gone Rip is. The only hang up is that he doesn't want to push her into actual suicide.

    Because Chrysalis did the same thing when impersonating Cadance. ;)

    So basically just gonna adopt a "can't win, don't try" idiom? Maybe it's a Sniper thing to do, but Rose isn't smart enough to do that. She will figure out a way to leave a hidden message for the world's greatest infiltrator to find. Even if it does nothing, at least Rose tried.

    Rose is pondering putting her on medication. but she's not that kind of doctor, hence getting Rip to a specialist who is and can work that out.

    Sniper: "That's a sweet thought, but I'm standing right here. No need to hide anything."

    I'll let Sniper explain himself IC when the time comes.

    Yup. We never found out if it was possible to shake Blue Mountain out of his malaise. It doesn't look like this second crack at it is going any better.

    But that's part of the point, isn't it? Chrysalis could easily hide in plain sight! Imagine if she disguises herself as a member of Hornet Squad (since they're the newest and least-known group) in order to kidnap one of us, or sabotage some piece of equipment of ours. What if she disguises herself as Happy and poison our meals to knock us out?

    I see it less as obsession and more as justified paranoia. ;)

    Now I *WANT* Chrysalis to infiltrate us to see how it plays out.

    You give Sniper an opening like that and it would be out of character not to take it.

    AI Trixie wasn't enough for you? Stop asking for GM to punk you!

    That's not much consolation. I wasn't optimistic about our chances, but botching it like that never feels good.

    I can eat the tomato raw, but blech, no thanks on potatoes.

    Oh, Rose is gonna have fun if sniper is gonna play along with the game. :D

    But... wait, am I the only one expecting that to have already been decided to be a thing? Chrysalis isn't going to come after Rose?

    I can understand. We can't save them all. We just have to keep trying until we succeed or she gives up.

    "Who's the PLAGUE doctor here?" Oh I loved this comic series. The running gag with McCoy being all about plagues was my fav part.
