Remember, children, warmongering is never as fun as you imagine it in your head.

Oh dang, I turn 30 years old this Monday. ...Guess I'll stream something on my Twitch channel, I dunno.

I'd have to rewatch the episode to see what he was saying for real, but that screengrab was a very good find for DiscordDM to show his inner "Mr. Burns".

A neat little detail is that there's only one throne, not two like what the older castle had. Celestia shares the seat of power with Luna. She is a good sister.

I'd argue only 1 throne is a bad sister move, since they have to either "fight" over it or only one of them really gets to claim it as theirs

But the reason there is only 1 throne in the Canterlot castle is because it was built before Luna came back, why make 2 thrones when there is only 1 ruler?

But once Luna came back, they kept it at one throne. They share the time between them.

She gets her own in season 9.

... and put the spare throne back in storage unless Twilight is letting Spike use one...

As we've seen in Canterlot Wedding and others, the sisters trade watch and watch. So they only need one throne.

If he wanted glorious warfare, at least Twilight didn't let him down

No Tirek, this is not Equestria At War HOI IV mod...

And an early Happy Birthday.

As crazy as it sounds, I am starting to suspect that the girls will decide to get drained by Tirek intentionally in order to bait him into turning on Discord.

As interesting as it would be, I have my doubts.

Though, it could be done; the screencap from the later seasons with a full powered Tirek could suggest that they do so just to spite a player who insists on playing the antagonistic pvp game, to cause the GM to rewind or some method of that kind.

But it does have some odd hurdles to get to all six deciding that the best way to 'win' is 'not to play'...
CyanWhisp 15th Aug 2022, 5:56 AM edit delete reply
Interesting. I came up with this theory because
a.) Discord just stated that the only thing keeping Tirek in line right now is the threat of death by elements.
b.) In the show, Tirek betrayed Discord immediately after draining the 5 girls.
c.) ‘The thing that was an accident in the show is now intentional’ is a common bit in this comic.
I suppose this would need the caviat of the girls having a plan to deal with Tirek afterwards.

Just fyi, 'Excellent' is misspelled in the first panel; I know the extra x's are on purpose, but you're missing an l. Also, happy birthday!
