Boy am I glad October is over. That was not a good month.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are still open until this arc is finished! Guidelines here.

Aww yeah! It's gonna be a bardic Throw Down! This is gonna be totally awesome.
Nixitur 1st Nov 2016, 4:15 PM edit delete reply
Bardic throw downs are the best kind! In our Pathfinder campaign, I've actually had a bard vs bard battle quite recently. My Halfling Negotiator against some shmuck who wanted to start some shit. Good fun!

Maybe with a reference to Monkey Island 3. :3

I cant wait to see whats going to happen next!

But Newbiesbud, why October was not a good month?

I dont recall you said your life was getting any better for a while now... so why October was different? :(
Newbiespud 1st Nov 2016, 7:02 AM edit delete reply
Because I got really, really sick for about half the month, so the SpudShot got delayed, giving me a lot of anxiety... And then on Halloween, a bunch of crummy things happened to me all at once, as if to bookend the whole thing. Taken as a whole, it wasn't great.
emmerlaus 1st Nov 2016, 7:10 AM edit delete reply
Awww... I wish I could send you some good vibes your way. Sorry that I cannot be much help for you.

I hope you'll get better. :(

Silver lining-- the SpudShot took off quite brilliantly last Sunday. A nice diamond in the rough of October.
Dusk Raven 1st Nov 2016, 12:59 PM edit delete reply
And of course I completely missed it, since I didn't even know it was going to happen.
Digo Dragon 2nd Nov 2016, 5:12 AM edit delete reply
Digo Dragon
To be fair, I think there was a part in most of us that wasn't sure if it was going to happen. Given how wonky October was...

Looking not seeing any,
As Rarity would say. "Iiideaaa."
Who was your favorite rainbow key giver?
Me:Coco Pommel
TrueZero2 1st Nov 2016, 7:03 AM edit delete reply
For me, it's a toss-up between Coco Pommel (who has now officially become 'Miss Pommel' due to legal difficulties) and Discord.

After all, he is technically a Key Giver.
emmerlaus 1st Nov 2016, 7:14 AM edit delete reply
Discord wins for sure! :D

I wanna see more of angry Discord... or better Yandere Discord! XD

"Don't make Fluttershy angry."

"Let me guess. I wouldn't like her when she's angry?"

"What? No. Nothing like that. She gets a bit... shouty. Scolds people. Nothing dangerous. No, the reason you don't want to get Fluttershy angry - or hurt, for that matter - is because that makes Discord angry. You *don't* want one of the primordial forces of the universe angry at you."
Archeo Lumiere 1st Nov 2016, 7:34 AM edit delete reply
Now, question, in this scenario, would he make your life impossibly boring and routine, or... 'interesting'
Guest 1st Nov 2016, 8:04 AM edit delete reply
If he tried to make your life boring, he'd put himself to sleep before you noticed much. He'd definitely ensure that you live in interesting times.

To swipe a bit about Belldandy Wishbringer-Morisato:

"Does she get mad?"
"Worse: She gets disappointed."

"They took Fluttershy?!"

"Coco Pommel (who has now officially become 'Miss Pommel' due to legal difficulties)"

Has this officially been confirmed at that point? All I can find are the initial news.

Applejack. I mean, she practically figured it out herself. ;)
ANW 1st Nov 2016, 11:51 AM edit delete reply
Applejack wasn't the key giver.
It was Sliver Sill that gave her the bit.
Digo Dragon 2nd Nov 2016, 5:22 AM edit delete reply
Digo Dragon
It might have been one of her own bits that Granny used to buy that worthless tonic. ;)
Dusk Raven 1st Nov 2016, 1:00 PM edit delete reply
Spitfire, myself.

Honestly, I don't get why the fandom likes Pommel so much. Though, I also don't remember her ep much.
TrueZero2 2nd Nov 2016, 4:45 AM edit delete reply
Well SRP, considering it came from a Storyboard Artist/Supervising Director (Twitter Handle @TheBiggestJim) for the show, I'd say it's looking pretty official.

I can't help but feel excited to see Cheese Sandwich, both because I'm a huge Weird Al fan, and because I ran a mildly successful askblog involving Cheese (and Trixie) for about a year, so feel, like, viscerally connected to the character.
Digo Dragon 1st Nov 2016, 8:02 AM edit delete reply
Digo Dragon
Wait wait wait. You mean to say that the brilliant blog Cheesewiz is your brain child? :D
CaptainMolasses 1st Nov 2016, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
Yep, that's me. I ran that until I got burned out on MLP. Now this comic (and two tumblr askblogs run by a buddy of mine, askbutdonthug and askrosemaryandguru) is all the pony that I consume.
I gotta say, I feel famous, what with someone recognizing my blog so quickly.

It was a good blog! I enjoyed it immensely! :D

Somebody get me an interrogation room and a bright light 'cause we are gonna grill this cheese sandwich!

...I really just wanted to make a grilled cheese sandwich joke. I feel better now.

You crumb! How could you say that?
Anvildude 1st Nov 2016, 10:10 AM edit delete reply
Hey, that was a great pun, and a good joke setup. Keep it up, and you could become the Big Cheese someday.
Freelance 1st Nov 2016, 10:10 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, I think that joke frying panned.
.... I'll run now.

You better run, you muenster! ;)

Well, I did call Cheese Sandwich to come in for this ark. I did NOT, however, think to call Gilda the person to roll him up.
Stormhawke 1st Nov 2016, 10:16 AM Indeed. edit delete reply
I agree. Never expected this angle. I just assumed the DM would have Cheese as an NPC and set him against Pinkie at some point.
Seido 1st Nov 2016, 10:30 AM Well... edit delete reply
Did not see this coming. And Pinkie's becoming a better manipulator. Say Spud? Are the others gonna finish their sheets before the "goof off" or is that gonna happen during or after?

Oh snap, this is one of the more epic moments that I can remember in this comic. I'm pumped.

Credit to Gilda for recognizing that Pinkie Pie is trying to be a party throwing pony, and not a fighting pony. However, I feel like things are not going to be fun for Rainbow Dash at all.
Night Spinner 1st Nov 2016, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
O.o I did not see this coming. This is going to be good.
Limey Lassen 1st Nov 2016, 5:33 PM edit delete reply
This is why I keep reading this comic even long after the gimmick of the premise has worn off. Your plot twists and remixes never fail to catch me off guard.
setokayba 1st Nov 2016, 6:51 PM edit delete reply
And so... We discover what the direction of MLP tought creating Cheese Sandiwch.

They could not think of any name so they put the first thing in mind.
Brickman 1st Nov 2016, 9:11 PM edit delete reply
I can't believe I didn't see this coming as soon as they announced that the arc was taking place on RD's birthday.
Caelus Storm 1st Nov 2016, 9:44 PM edit delete reply
it's time for "Epic Bard Battles of Equestria". cheese Sandwich. versuuusssss. Pinkie Pie!

One of my favorite moments when I was DMing was after the party had to flee the dungeon. There was a brief moment of silence as they regrouped. Eventually one of the players spoke up and said "Did ... did we just get our butts kicked by a bard?!"

Criminy! Now I need to go rewatch the Cheese Sandwich episode.
