If that's not the premise for a grossly absurd grimdark fanfic yet, I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

Guess time
How many more pages until the runaway happens?

I’ll guess seven! For no other reason then why not!

Equestria is a weird place when friendship is a concept that can be physically weaponized. I do like that kind of weird.

Mortal Kombat had the right idea then. MK11, bring back Friendships!

And it's the equivalent of nuclear weaponry - it's THAT powerful. When six magic-deprived ponies can defeat the magic of ALL Equestria, including four alicorns, using nothing but the power of their friendship, the other countries around should be very nervous.

(Why, yes, I did add the "Friendship Option" to the Ponies with Pikes entry on TVTropes, why do you ask?)

Well, there goes an hour of my life browsing TVtropes. XD

*Only* an hour? That's discipline, right there.

Nah, I'd say it's more that TVTropes isn't as much of a trap ever since the "we want to make a serious reference site" crowd got control.

...is it just me, or does the griffon in panel 3 look like he's flipping the dragon off?
Luke 4th Apr 2019, 7:49 AM edit delete reply
It's the horn of Prince Rutherford behind him which looks like a finger

Huh, you're right. At first I thought he was flipping the dragon off (being that sort of character, but that's a little extreme for MLP - unless that was a deliberate "getting it past the radar").

You know, that does sound like it could be an alternate-Our Town fanfic.

Instead of the map sending the group to Our Town, they find themselves sent to <insert name here>, home of the School of Friendship, as run by Starlight Glimmer...

Let's be fair, the School of Friendship is, in canon, a front for indoctrination.

And second... is a basement with a ritual circle count as a secret lab in this case?
Winged Cat 4th Apr 2019, 10:23 AM edit delete reply
Winged Cat
A ritual circle counts as lab equipment, if it's a thaumatological lab - and in this world, such labs would exist.

Is the basement considered "secret" in any meaningful way?

Nopony knew about it for most of the season. The entrance is through a drainage grate or something like that?
zimmerwald1915 4th Apr 2019, 11:22 AM edit delete reply
That's not so much "secret" as "undiscovered." It'd be a secret if it was jept from everyone but and by a few, but no one knew about the catacombs.
Freelance 4th Apr 2019, 6:21 PM edit delete reply
It was secret enough that nobody found Starlight Glimmer down there for a while.

Not when Twilight is in charge

Disagree that it’s for indoctrination in canon. You could maybe convince me that they are political hostages, but they would still be hostages voluntarily given by the other nations. Moreover, they are allowed to leave, and have a fair amount of influence over the curriculum. The worst that could be said of the school is that it is heavy-handed diplomacy that assumes cultural superiority
zimmerwald1915 4th Apr 2019, 3:26 PM edit delete reply
Assume cultural supremacy for long enough, and in a heavy-handed enough way, and it becomes indistinguishable from indoctrination.
Borg 4th Apr 2019, 10:32 AM edit delete reply
But not here; there are no secrets in this school's basement.

None at all.

Nope.
Emtu 4th Apr 2019, 4:39 PM edit delete reply
Of course there's a secret lab in the basement, Twilight's running the school.
zimmerwald1915 4th Apr 2019, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
That's not actually a given.

Front? Please In any other world it would be open honest indoctrination without the pretense.

The secret order running the school is looking for the student who'll become the Quidditch Haderach.

I'm... Actually rather curious about core classes versus electives. But I suspect it follows the Medieval format more, where the concept of 'electives' isn't really a thing.

5 foreign students? There are 5 foreign students in the role playing group, but there are more than 5 foreign students in the school.

Or, are you just going to use screencaps where you don't see any non-pony students?
