    Reflections on a Royal Wedding and (Pony) Princess Culture

    Last weekend Britain had the excitement of a royal wedding, which is something that gets many people on this small island a little worked up. Some excitement also spread to America, and to much of the rest of the world. It seems, however, to have not attracted much comment on Fimfiction, despite the prominence of princess culture in our show. Evidently our community is only interested in

    Teambuilding activities

    In Non-Compete Clause Applejack and Rainbow Dash cannot agree whether shed building or speed racing is the better activity. Which leads to all sorts of problems.

I've seen some interesting stuff along that line. Choreographing quantum entanglement and the collapse of the wavefunction... Not sure how much the audience takes in... I think I'll stick to ponies.
