Jetfire is not only alive, he's posted Dangerous Business here at FIMFic... along with the first two chapters of a sequel.

It means I can finally do this:

In the next:

     "Clandestine Corps" story, I'm sending Blueblood and his team to the zebra homeland specifically because I want to write whole sections of rhyming dialogue.  But that's just me...  :twilightblush:

I definitely don't like the idea of every zebra rhyming -- I kind of put mine out there as a half-formed, off-the-cuff thought, because I've never expended a great deal of energy considering it. Someone else's 50 Headcanon Questions blog proposed that she's the victim of a curse, which I like, but my favorite has to be GhostOfHeraclitus's, where she's one of a select group of missionaries who have a deeply-reasoned... reason for talking that way.

Just happened to be passing by and wanted to comment regarding this:

38. Do all zebras rhyme?

No. Zecora was banished from the zebra homeland for it.

Thank the lords of Kobol I'm not the only one who doesn't assume that she represents zebras as a whole. We've seen one, and we have no reason to think she reflects her race/tribe in any way, shape, or form. I say this with a specific reference in mind. Horizon commented on a story of mine where I use rhyming for a pony married to a bard: "It seems a little odd against canon, given that it felt awfully Zebraic and that seems like cross-cultural contamination [...] "

I can't pretend that I don't mentally put black marks against people that compare an author's stories to their headcanon as if their headcanon meant anything. I kinda wish I were less judgemental than that, but I'm only human.

Anyway, the point was to say that I am deeply appreciative of your approach to headcanon, although it does make for an interesting point of analysis that I don't hold an opinion on, nor even care about, the majority of the questions presented here.

People are weird—myself included. Myself especially.
