The biggest thing I didn't expect out of this comic was the somewhat closer than usual rapport between Twilight and Pinkie. Maybe deep down I've been TwiPie shipping trash all along? ...Nah.

I thought Pinkie trying to act like a stereotypical action hero was funny personally. I'm not sure how it would come across with real people though.

Same, I've actually run a ponyfinder game where we had a pinkie pie expy go all dark and gritty on us. That was some comedy gold

Totally with you here. I found it very funny. But also agree that with ‘real people’ it might not go over as well unless it’s clearly being done for fun. Which this situation seemed sorta geared to prevent.

Yeah, I enjoyed what pinkie was doing too. Her only mistake was not going oc to check with teilight/others when it went poorly with her.

Pinkie pies curse seems to have the most straightforward in character solution to me, which is, remind her that the best way to defeat discord is by remembering how to laugh.

I probably more agree with Pinkie. She tried to be serious action hero, but it fell flat and forced to me. Quite annoying in my opinion.

Maybe the comicly serious action hero would have been a better fit? Like how Arnold Schwarzenegger can be in a good number of his movies.

Of the four who 'took the bait', I think Pinkie's bittergrim was probably the one I would've enjoyed being at the table most, simply because of the contrast I've played in games with a personality-altering curse before, and they can be fun--and Pinkie seemed to be having fun doing it, and I find fun contagious unless it's malicious in nature.

By contrast:
AJ was clearly frustrated; Fluttershy was irritated and maybe even a little unpleasant; and Rarity seemed trapped in her self-image as a ROLEplayer to the point where she wasn't enjoying it (ie, she wasn't doing this because she wanted to, after awhile, but because she felt she needed to, in order to live up to her self-image as the group's thespian).
