If you'll excuse me, I need to find a towel, clean up my fangasm, and read that manga!:pinkiehappy:

#3 · 107w, 5d ago · 2 · ·

when you mentioned the fucked up seasons, my first thought was that they could simply be doing them backwards. New management or a beaurocracy error could have led to the seasons being done backwards.

#4 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Distraction successful. :twilightsmile:

#5 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Manga? You have my interest but you can only distract for so long, like a cat with a piece of yarn.

#6 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

That manga... READ IT!

Also, plot holes like how some of the things mentioned in other fimfiction stories occur like door handles, tea pots, mugs and even the skates that Pinkie was using.:pinkiecrazy:

#7 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

I'm going to hate you for skipping an episode:ajbemused:

#9 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

How dare you link us to something you've already provided a link to before? :flutterrage:

Yeah, I actually don't mind that much. The reason this fic does well is BECAUSE it deviates from the episodes, not because it follows them. You've still got plenty of episodes to cover, and with season 3 arriving you're only going to get more. :twilightsmile:

#10 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I read that already but thanks for reminding us:twilightsmile:

#11 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I'm sorry i need to clean my computer screen after seeing that

#12 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

There's a manga?!

I'll take that offer! But im not gonna give some fangasm for that.

Have this one instead! :moustache:

EDIT: F*ck! I just realized 2moro is my exam! Thx a lot memesaurus for distracting me from revising!  

      U know what? Ima read the manga than revise.....


#13 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

why don't you just write them in the right order? Fall first then Winter?

wouldent that make more sense than to skip 2 episodes?

#14 · 107w, 5d ago · 2 · ·

The episodes aren't in chronological order. They were never supposed to be. You have to assume Twilight has written to the Princess other weeks, but those weeks just aren't part of the episodes.

It's the same with Twilight's first birthday she celebrated with her friends and her first Nightmare Night in Ponyville; both are chronologically part of her first year in Ponyville but both are, episodically, part of Season 2.

#15 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

Well, that's fair enough, maybe you can just replace them when they fit story wise.

#21 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Y'know... I've read in one of the wikis that the episodes were not aired in the order they were supposed to happen. :D Give us winter wrap-up! (after fall weather friends of course)

Someone seemed to have used logic to figure it all out too..

#22 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

meme-asaurus, why don't you shuffle the episodes so that Fall Weather Friends and Winter Warp-Up happen during season two? That is, assuming you're doing season two episodes, but I think its fair to say most fans are making that assumption.

#23 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I’m not doing the Winter Wrap-Up episode. Or the Fall Weather Friends.

Or you could just do Fall Weather Friends first and give the finger to episode order all together. Your choice.

#24 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

How to Include Both Episodes:

Step 1: Come-up with better idea for "Fall Weather Friends" (If you still think the one you came up with sucks by then:fluttershysad:)

Step 2: Write them in chronological order instead of broadcast order:twilightsmile:

Step 3: ???:applejackconfused:

Step 4: Profit[img]//[/img]

#25 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

*twitches in a fit of fangasms* :pinkiecrazy:

#26 · 107w, 5d ago · 2 · ·

Oh, meme, you big silly! Of course you'd run into this problem if you tried to present season one's chronology as the same order that the episodes aired in! That's because it's all out of whack!

The diagram an above commenter posted partially explains this, but here's version two of the same diagram anyway.

Make sense now?

#27 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Technically it could just be that some of the friendship reports weren't shown in the show, therefore accounting for the missing time.

#28 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

fuck broadcast order and go fall weather friends, hearths warming eve, winter wrap up?

#29 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I'm reading the manga later.

#30 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I can see why you wouldn't want to do those two episodes, and I don't blame you for not doing them.

#31 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Considering all the deviations from the show (and the fact that word of god says there isn't a set in stone canon I believe), why not just put Fall Weather Friends before Winter Wrap Up?

#32 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·


That actually makes sense.

I think.

And no offence to the artist (props to him/her for doing this), but I honestly cannot stand the style of manga.  I shall give that a miss.

And if you had decided to make the plow turn into a robot-thing, I would have demanded Transformers references.

#33 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I agree do the Fall Weather Friends then Witer Warp up

Also Sex and Fire

#34 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

You heard me. The same guy who did my cover art is making an anime-style comic book of this very story. Now, are you going to sit there and hate me for cutting out an episode, or are you going to fangasm, click the freaking link, read the manga, and fangasm some more?

Your choice.

#35 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

i already know of the manga! You cannot use it to sate me!

.....ah, who am I kidding? I was never that invested in continuity porn anyway. Just keep doing what you do dood.

#36 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

The episodes aired in a nonchronological order.

#37 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I think you're just lazy and splitting hairs, but make something original yourself to fill the gap, and we'll call it even.

#38 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

It's worse. The 'winter' actually lasts less than a day. When Twilight Sparkle wakes up too early in the morning, d'you notice something? No snow.

The snow is there when she next walks out the door. So I'm guessing she got up waaaaaay too early.

...or they have a very short winter. You know, like we'd have one day of rain in an otherwise spotless summer.

#39 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

just do winter wrap up and forget the timeline

#40 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Soooo, what ARE you gonna do next then?

Or are you giving up on this all-together? :applecry:

#41 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

some how i found this more copmical than anything you have done befopre in this story  jolly good show my friend

#42 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Here is how I view the time issue...

Also, why don't you have Dusk realize the plot hole, Pinkie freak out, and then Dr. Whooves explain it! :pinkiegasp: Could be fun....

Love your ideas, love your work. I look forward to whatever you write. :rainbowkiss:

#43 · 107w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

BRO I GOT THIS. Buckle your seatbelt.

So Princess Trollestia is messing around with super powerful magic and accidentally causes an overnight blizzard in Ponyville. Thoroughly embarrassed and being the troll she is, she brainwashes the town into thinking its been winter for three months and now it's time to wrap it up. Dusk and Pinkie, with their magical/fourth wall powers are immune and wake up very concerned. Their concerns grow when they learn everypony thinks it's been winter for three months. They meet to have sex discuss the problem and decide to help anyways just to get things back to normal, all the while asking why nopony notices that yesterday was SUMMER. Afterwards, a concerned Dusk contacts Celestia, who then confesses that it was her fault, lessons were learned, love and tolerate, blah blah blah. Winter is cleaned up and summer returns (with more brainwashing to skip right through spring), and the time line continues right on into autumn and Fall Weather Friends can proceed as planned. ITS BRILLIANT AND U KNOW IT! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO USE THIS!! This fic needs more Trollestia anyways.

I give you full permission to use any and all of these ideas. No need to thank me. You're welcome. Seeing more of your work is thanks enough. SO CMON WHAT U WAITING FOR.

Also, the manga was quite delicious. Your attempts to appease me have not gone unnoticed.

#44 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1527670 My god. :pinkiegasp: That's awesome.

My thinking (and probably other people's as well, I haven't read all the comments) is to simply flip those two's order: Fall Weather Friends, then Winter Wrap-up sometime thereafter, as in FWW is in October, and WWW is in the following February. I dunno.

#45 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

I would have loved to read the pinkie commentary in the hot air balloon, but if it's too annoying to explain two seasonal shifts in reverse order, then I hold nothing against it

#46 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

>>1527451 It's like how in "The Return of Harmony," there's a lot more letters that Celestia returns than 26-27ish.

#47 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Your attempt to distract us with a manga was clever, but as I can see from reading the comments, not clever enough. :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

#48 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

Episodes not in cronlogical order.  Simple as that.  Odd for a cartoon like this though.

#49 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

ok i was confused at all the chronology stuff but then i saw manga and i literally just stopped....not readin moving or one single thingi just stopped......tell the artist that e did a good deed today:twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

#50 · 107w, 5d ago · · ·

When I get onto a computer that won't have deviantART blocked (school internet, yay :ajbemused:), I'll check the manga out.
