...Are those five Derpys in panel 2?

Were all the conspicuous absences of her as a background character in season 3 and the first part of season 4 actually just her going back in time and appearing extra times in the previous seasons?

(It might be late and I might be very tired as I write this.)

No, only one Derpy's eyes are slightly crossed, the one in the top row, as is her adorable signature look. The rest are imposter changelings that mimicked the least suspicious pony in a quest to infiltrate equestria unnoticed! After all, who'd ever suspect her? It's the perfect disguise! Until they realized there were multiple versions of her at the same spot, and they couldn't tell who was a changeling of each other or the original.

Remember, at one point, she wasn't a character and didn't have her eyes crossed by default. It was only by Season Two that they made it permanent.

I kinda loathe it...

Don't you just hate it when you spy so hard you forget who you were spying for?

Rainbow's first true long shot.
You guys ever had to pull one of these before?

I've never personally pulled this sort of thing off, but I had a player that did once. We were playing FFG's Edge of the Empire (Star Wars, but with a focus on "wretched hive[s] of scum and villainy"), and I was running an adventure that was half Hunger Games, half, well, Star Wars. Long story short, the party was split and a pair of PCs were out in an evil swamp trying to make it to their transport. Somehow, one of the PCs ended up on the bad end of an Acklay (which, if you know don't know what an Acklay is, is basically ALL THE ENDS). He was running away and, while in full view of the creature, decided to roll to HIDE. FROM THE ANGRY MONSTER. RIGHT BEHIND HIM. A sane (read: smart) GM, would have simply told him it was an impossibility, but I was not a sane GM.

A side note about FFG's Star Wars RPGs: because it's a system that uses "positive" and "negative" dice, it is always possible that a task, no matter how hard, can be achieved if a character is simultaneously very skilled and ungodly lucky.

So I give him a bunch of negative dice. If memory serves (and it probably does not), I gave him the same amount you'd give someone trying to blow up the Death Star. The only benefits he had to the roll were the fog, and the spending of one Destiny Point. He takes this fistfull of dice, shakes it up, and

FREAKING

BEYOND ALL REASON

SUCCEEDS.

And I'm just left there, flabbergasted, trying to figure out how on earth this good-for-nothing nerf-herder had managed to elude a giant angry crab-monster right behind him.

"An old satellite's orbit's has been decaying for some time and by AN AMAZEING CO-INCIDENCE, JUST HAPPENS to fall on the Acklay. By the way, I hate you so much"

"You turn a corner around a bush, spot a small sinkhole, and dive down it. The Acklay doesn't notice and thunders on past. By the way, I hate you."
