I think I'm just a sucker for the social philosophy side of this show. Exploring how people act and think and the consequences and potential thereof in a safe, fantastical environment... That's extremely my jam, turns out.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

Look, solving an open-ended narrative puzzle is one thing. Impromptu poetry is quite another.

To make some impromptu poetry
Can be quite easy, actually.
Pick a format, short and quick.
Say, haiku or limerick.
Then put your words together swiftly.

Practice helps. To be fast, level up.
Don't despair if you are a young pup.
It can be quite a long grind,
'Til you leave your doubts behind.
One secret is to keep your hopes up.

Another is to prepare some rhymes
Likely to be relevant at times
That you can see coming up:
"Will X do Y next time? Yup!"
When Y happens, what will be your lines?

I find that flow
Has more import
Than any rhyme.

Just do make sure
To keep your rules
The same through out.

I know it's a kids show, and the episode is from nearly a decade ago now, but that look on Twi's face in the last panel still gives me the heebie jeebies.

The pen is mightier than the sword, and a quill is light enough to qualify for sneak attack damage.

She's basically planning to stab the universe. What could possibly go wrong?

/q From one to another, another to one.

A mark of one's destiny singled out alone, UNfulfilled;

From all of us together,

To each of us together,

With the marks of our destinies made one,

and one shared by all without end

The canon version seemed to be more about fulfilling one pony's destiny...which made it seem like the spell was about exploiting five other ponies to ascend oneself. Starswirl, I suspect, was a jerkass.

Well, given how he acts once he actually arrives in-show... yes. Yes he was.

Ah, yes! From "The Great Alicorn Hunt", by RHJunior. A great fanfic. Shame that in canon continuity, only Twilight ascends.

Reminds me of the time my PCs beat the final boss(a steampunk kind that was going to make the entire world a dead magic zone), In a dead maguc zone, using a friendship speech, the tooth of a dream monster glitched into reality, and basic rhyming to cast True Resurrection on the skeletal remains of a ancient friendly monk they knew that was easily epic level through sheer zen-tier and time spent meditating in the barrier between life and death...

...again, in a dead maguc zone.

They basically used Friendship, and a symbol of realitys laws not being absalute, to summon a absalute martial monster to help them fight this King and his giant steam mechaguards.

I'd give more deetz but this game was an exceptionally long ass time ago... Like atleast 15 years.... GOD I feel old...
