And that's the end of FiD's ninth arc, The Last Roundup! These usually end on a 10, but the pacing didn't quite work out that way, so it ends on a 5 this time.

What's next? Another excursion into an IDW comic mini-arc, which gives people plenty of time to submit guest comics so that there's content enough for me to take a brief sabbatical. And then we'll return with... at time of writing, I'm not 100% sure myself. Who gets their ticket next? Pinkie Pie? Fluttershy? Or will Rainbow Dash finally actually get hers? We'll see next time!

Rarity is a devious thief, Pinkie, there WILL be payback some day.

My guess is somewhere in the arc after the next one.

How are the responses to submissions going along?

Noodle Incidents? I had a character with one built into his background. Happened in Brazil and was responsible for why he left the army, but it was an interesting one because it was a tragic Noodle Incident.

The only thing other PCs could piece together was that in involved a broken laptop and my character's platoon driving out to find a Radio Shack, only to misplace our Humvee because someone TP'd it.

Sometimes, in real life, I talk about things that have happened to me in vague terms, making them noodle incidents to everybody else.

"Let's just say it involved three bags of cement, a space heater, two RC cars, a calculator, and a sledgehammer."

That has served me quite well over the years.

"Silicon wafers and hydrochloric acid mix surprisingly well."

"It turns out that grinding things into finer particles can make them explode better. Who knew?"

"I've done the research, and there can exist such things as space pirates. But being flagged to no nation they have no rights, so any national space force could seize them as property. Let's just say, that prospect did not appeal to my clients."

"Have I hacked for pay? There is one incident I can cop to, where they owned the code and everything, they'd just lost the password. I did it mostly as a favor for them, only charging them a dime more to crack and reset their security considering everything else."

"I made my own quasi-corporate alias because there are organizations, for instance military ones, that will never provide certain things to an individual but are perfectly happy providing the same things to a 'company', even one that is nothing more than a legal alias for a person. It's been useful for other purposes too."

That last one is where Winged Cat Solutions came from.

In response to Winged Cat Solutions...

I made an ad company during 11th and 12th grade of High School. I was in a Marketing and Business class, and a lot of our projects we'd have to do involved, well, *marketing* an idea. For one, we made a Super Bowl Cereal commercial (Making a graphic of football logo-shaped Lucky Charms was actually somewhat difficult for that), and for another, we designed a roller coaster with a special purpose: It also had a gift shop off the Exit (separate from the Entrance), and had an entire section set in a glass tube set in the middle of a huge, open-ocean aquarium.

The ad company that we made to add a sense of credibility to it all was called "Superb Ad Associations" and we had a website for the two years under "www.superbadass.com" With our logo being a smiley face with a baseball cap, with the words "superbadass" written on the cap.

My group ended the first year with 115% in the gradebooks due to that small extra effort. It was something I'm still rather proud of having created.

How Pvt. Sarvus "Rook" Torian "joined" the Imperial Guard is a bit of a noodle incident itself. Small details pop
