Guest Author's Note: "You know that thing where you're made of clouds, you assume everyone you touch can cloudwalk (by being a pegasus or by being enchanted), until one day you accelerate your body at something that treats you like mist, and by the time your attack starts going wrong you're kinetically committed to it?

Though we did not illustrate every single one, rest assured, the title does not lie. Sometimes, knowing no fear is a bad thing."

Newbiespud's Note: That's it for guest comics! Hopefully by now I've figured out what the next main arc is going to be! Thanks to all of our guest authors for contributing some awesome mini-arcs this time around and helping to give me an all-too-short sabbatical!

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: February 20th.

I get that he got the metal bowl thing from defeating the not-MCP, but what was it that it could vaporize the BigWings? I missed that part.

I think the idea was that the lazer rode the inside of the dish and was redirected back at the BigWings.

Does noone watch the classics?

They do the "close and smash" with the legs. No shooty, all smooshy.
Doc's using the MCP emitter dish thingy and a power source to derez them on impact. Or possibly shoot an MCP laser.

Close, but no power source needed. Check the author's note: they're made of clouds.

Consider what happens when a cloud descends fast on some solid object, and there isn't magic involved. (Even if the cloud is sentient enough to expect there will be magic, only to find out the hard way.)

Answer: cloud gets torn to shreds and dissipates. (If you're in a part of the world that gets foggy mornings, try passing your hand swiftly through the fog. It's literally that.) The bigwings kept on attacking and disintegrating even after seeing what happened.

Ah. I didn't pick up on them moving that fast. Cloud-based light cycles? Sure. But I remember the Rectifiers in both movies being more slow (and Flynn being able to swerve his broken Rectifier fairly well before it fell to pieces), so I just didn't get that kind of sense of motion.

Not so fast horizontally. But Joe's right: when they fall, that is fast.

...I thought it was a whole thing in the last two pages that the pillar the dish projects is also made out of clouds. I'm not sure how clouds can destroy other clouds? How would Cloudsdale even hold together if that was true?

I think panel 10 on this page is one of my favorites in the mini-arc. Doc's expression has just the right amount of "I might not have enough HP to tank this fall damage."

Panel 3 is my favorite: Doc rescuing Gin from himself, OOCly as well as ICly.

"should of" in panel 7
Winged Cat 28th Feb 2019, 10:27 AM edit delete reply
Winged Cat
Technically "should have" is grammatically correct, but a number of people pronounce that "should of", and we were going for what was actually said instead of what should have been said.
Guest 28th Feb 2019, 4:06 PM edit delete reply
Then why not spell it as 'should've'?
Winged Cat 28th Feb 2019, 4:33 PM edit delete reply
Winged Cat
We were going for what actually came out the various parties' mouths. Often enough, people actually say "should of" even if it is incorrect, so we went with that here.

It's a struggle I have writing dialog to sound natural and writing narration to sound proper. :3
HalflingPony 6th Mar 2019, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
"Should of" is just a mistaken transcription of "should've". There is no audible difference between the two.

If I have one major disappointment about this story arc, it's this: Doctor didn't go by the codename Tonic for it at all.

Gotta keep it G-rated, I guess.

I'll be honest, "I'll be your umbrella" sounds like it should be a dramatic line from an anime. Probably for a romance scene, but I could see it in a cool/funny action sequence too.

The scene where he blocks the shot reminds me of an old scene from Ullysis 31 (or whatever the French created Japanese animated show was called).

So, what do you think the next session of the FiD cast be about?

I feel a Discorded! Boss fight, maybe after a "tutorial"/introduction on how traveling through the World of Chaos is like.

"You know that thing where..." I keep hearing that said in Stefon's voice from SNL.
