Guest Author's Note: "Making Marceline Tree Hugger was honestly the ONLY thing I really had planned. Everything else, including the headbutting thing only came about after the fact. Except use of Flutterbat to show that Fluttershy has a 'hardcore' side. I just really wanted to do that."

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

Head butting a friend to the point that the E.R. is required is all that is needed to become hardcore? Huh, thought it would be easier.
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 5:08 AM edit delete reply
not required. just that Fluttershy was so worried about her that they went to the ER.

Don't discount the actual pain involved in a good headbutt either. Ice packs were probably warranted. :o

But if Marcie got her into 'good old rock and roll' then how come she didn't know about David Bowie?
Cyborg7221 13th Dec 2016, 5:24 AM edit delete reply
Easy. I like YouTube indie music, and I have no idea what all is on there. Just 'cuz you like a genre, doesn't mean you know everything in it. Some things are just bound to slip through the cracks.

Maybe she's like me and has hardly ever even encountered David Bowie in a musical sense, so it doesn't matter if they like the music.
Like, I had completely forgotten David Bowie was a musician until half-binging the comic a couple of days ago.
And that's coming from someone who both knew about them from before I read the comic, and has read it a couple of times already.
His fame as the goblin-king's just too overshadowing.

What are you talking about, Rainbow Dash is the one that didn't know who David Bowie was, not Fluttershy.
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 1:04 PM edit delete reply
You're right, my bad. My memory had it where she agreed with Dashie about not knowing who he was.

If there was any time to put this one up, it is today.

What's your favorite type of music?

Me:Though I perfer full anime theme songs, as long as a song is not hard metal, I'll give it try.
ChaosStar0 13th Dec 2016, 5:58 AM edit delete reply
Classic Rock all day every day. I do listen to some boy bands(Backstreet Boys), anime theme songs, and other music. Anything but Rap basically.
Boris Carlot 13th Dec 2016, 6:22 AM edit delete reply
Mostly I listen to trip-hop, but I'm a huge fan of Queens of the Stone Age and The Divine Comedy.
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 6:36 AM edit delete reply
Actually, I have a question for you;
why are you a root beer?

Also, I like a little bit of everything. You name it, I love at least one song in the genre.
ANW 13th Dec 2016, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
Those are my initials.
It just it just happened to be the same as the name of a brand of root beer.
Rastaba 13th Dec 2016, 7:01 AM edit delete reply
Much like Michaela I like a bit of most every genre. Except heavy like scream metal or death metal. Those just don't work for me. My general fave genre though tends to be just 'anime theme songs', or Rock like Stan Bush. I'll admit I know OF David Bowie but have never been familiar with his work. Neither music or 'The Goblin King'. Number 2(or 3 depending on your opinion of ties) would have to be 'show tunes' like disney songs or musicals.

Edit: Reminded by Jennifer mentioning them, NO bagpipes! I can't personally stand them. So most every genre, except as previously mentioned OR anything with bagpipes!
Michaela 14th Dec 2016, 12:18 PM edit delete reply
There is a YouTube video of a guy playing Thunderstruck by Dragonforce on his bagpipes that also shoot fire. It was so metal, I don't know how anyone could hate bagpipes after seeing it.

But you also said that you're not into metal... your loss

I listen to anything as long as it's trying to be interesting on some level. Most of what I listen to is modern rock, but if it can be objectively called music and isn't the musical equivalent of a garbage fire I'll probably enjoy it.
Jennifer 13th Dec 2016, 7:40 AM edit delete reply
Traditional Folk and Celtic, especially bagpipes. IE, stuff everyone else has forgotten ever existed. I've never listened to pop at all, and while I'd heard the name David Bowie I've never listened to his music and wouldn't recognize him on the street.

Lately the answer seems to be "grunge."

Ask me again in a few months and we'll see what I say then.
reynard61 14th Dec 2016, 12:44 AM edit delete reply
Classical Music. Primarily Hector "Go BIG or go Home" Berlioz. But I also like (in no particular order) Liszt, Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Mahler, Bruckner, Sibelius, Mozart and...well...the rest.

Don't worry though, I also like some Rock (mainly from The Beatles through the '80s) and Novelty songs. (Weird Al, Spike Jones, Barnes & Barnes, Kip Adotta... Pretty much anything that you might have heard on Dr. Demento.)

ETA: I also like some Anime Theme songs and BGM as well.

At first I had trouble imagining someone playing Tree Hugger and acting like this.
But thinking about it, yeah, there is a lot of overlap between Tree Hugger and Amethyst - the kind of overlap that implies the same author.
And Amethyst's player WOULD be the kind of person you'd suspect of making fun of people and then taking their fries.

My old gaming group had a whole series of rules about fries and when it's perfectly legal to take them. It was serious business apparently.
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 6:39 AM edit delete reply
fries are a free for all. If you don't eat them quickly, you don't get any. Never bothered me though. Let others eat the greasy, salty starches, I on the other hoof steal chicken nuggets.
FanOfMostEverything 13th Dec 2016, 6:57 AM edit delete reply
But were there any fry rules lawyers?
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 7:02 AM edit delete reply
There are rules lawyers for EVERYTHING

An image of Fries Court and the procedural TV series surrounding it comes to mind...
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 7:54 AM edit delete reply
I could help write that...

The Fries Court is now in session. All rise for the honorable Judge Spud.
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 8:09 AM edit delete reply
"According to statute 32.7, and the Freedom Amendment; if the eating party be in a relationship with the purchaser, then all fries purchased are within legal propriety of the eating party."
you know that guy 13th Dec 2016, 7:37 PM edit delete reply
Objection, your honor. As argued in Abadeer, what kind of dad eats his daughter's fries and doesn't look her in the eye?
Michaela 14th Dec 2016, 1:42 AM edit delete reply
...that escalated quickly

Flutterbat being Shy with her Hardcore on is awesome. :)
Dusk Raven 13th Dec 2016, 10:35 AM edit delete reply
I always did rather like Flutterbat - but I liked even more the notion put forth in Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep that Flutterbat is a part of her, in a way - perhaps representing, to her, her assertive and brave side.

Agreed. Thus why it keeps getting used to attract audiences - even if by canon it's rare. (Though if it were more common in canon, it might not attract as much.)
Michaela 13th Dec 2016, 12:26 PM edit delete reply
It's best that Flutterbat remain rare, even as much as I personally enjoy the notion. Overdoing vampire motifs can get campy and dumb, losing loyal audiences. Which is one reason why Joss Whedon switched it up so much with Buffy/Angel once he had a good fan base going.

Inspired by our discussion of music, I returned to an old webcomic I used to read years ago. Introducing Facebath, the first ever metal band in this fantasy setting. The band members are Taz MaDara, an elfin drummer, Randy Thrasher, a half-Orc bassist, and on vocals and lead guitar is Gregory Deegan, whose father is the most famous bard in the country, mother is an arch-Mage, and brothers are a powerful necromancer and the local oracle. enjoy. \m/
