Author Notes:

I'm trying to come up with a pithy, discussion-provoking Author's Note for this update, but honestly, I just looked at the scheduling calendar and saw that this is going up December 1st, and the only thought in my head now is, "Good grief, it's finally December."

Anyway, another Shadowtrot episode is live today!

Them randomly using the CMC as the flower fillies despite no indication they were in Canterlot before or after the scene amuses me.

Or rather, in the line of flower.

Though these flowers might turn out to be just that flammable, as a random extra bit that not-Cadance put in as insurance.

Shh! Don't give the DM ideas!

Do give the DM ideas, that are likely to backfire against opposing NPCs.

Or frontfire. It doesn't really matter from which direction they get burned.

Frankly that just sounds like something the CMC would do all on their own while trying to be the best flower fillies ever- that or accidentally use something like Poison Joke petals. Setting the bride on fire or cursing her by accident feels like the right sort of escalation when adapting their antics to a D&D setting.

Hooray! Only 2 more years until 2020 is done.

Fun Pony Fact: The musical number ends with the music rising, then dropping into the 'Mine, all mine' ending. In musical terms, this is known as... A False Cadence.

As if we didn't need more evidence that "Cadance" here is pretty sus. (Sorry, I just had to.)

I think they snuck in a false cadence at the end of "BBBFF", as well. Never mimd that, now.

Edit: I got the wrong term, whoops. Serves me right for not double-checking my sources. Thanks to Moonblaze for the correction.

You actually mucked this up a little bit. You didn't quite describe it right, but what you're trying to refer to is a Deceptive Cadence.

If NPCs had a perception shill maybe someone would notice the groom's eyes. :3

But! It's probably not fair to the players if NPCs are constantly picking up the clues and crumbs meant for the PCs to find. After all, as a GM you want to make the game about them primarily... and throw in an occasional NPC to get adopted that you can play through by proxy. XD

Funnily enough, I've never noticed the *front* of fake Cadance's wedding dress before. It makes her look like a bumblebee, and there's something off about that collar. And finally, what is the Crystal Heart doing right on her chest? Isn't it lost until next season?
Winged Cat 2nd Dec 2020, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
Winged Cat
It's not the Crystal Heart, just a gem that looks like it.
Moonblaze 2nd Dec 2020, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
That's some interesting foreshadowing I never noticed before though. Very interesting indeed.
Eroraf 2nd Dec 2020, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
I mean, the Heart is literally stamped right on her butt...
