    Arms and Armament

    So, I was catching up on some blog posts this morning, and happened upon one which discussed the way objects can reflect characters, and happened to use their choices of weapons as an example. Which set me off down the track of contemplating what, in Equestria's earlier and rather rougher pieces of history, might our favorite protagonists arm themselves with should such warlike preparations be

    Color Coordination

    Given the full-spectrum range of coat and mane colors among Equestrian ponies, can you imagine the trouble planners of any sort of public event that needs a seating chart must have? Not only do they have to take into account all the same considerations that we do, but Earthly event planners don't have to worry about accidentally creating eye-wateringly bad color combinations by accident.

If I do decide to go down the CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS COSMONAUTS! path, even unto the point at which marks are earned in rocketry - well, I invite speculation in the comments as to what, specifically, Sweetie Belle's might be.

(Scootaloo's and Apple Bloom's are pretty obvious, given the talents we see them display in canon, but I'm having real trouble with hers - and I can't use only two out of three of the Ponyville CMCs for this plot thread, for reason that it would be a crime against narrative causality.)

Music writing with rocket motors for percussion instruments?

Something to do with communications?
