    UnDeserved: FiM/EqG's terrible moral

    I watched entirely too much pony this morning. It got me thinking.

    EqG 1: Sunset Shimmer not granted higher power by Celestia, takes Element of Magic, becomes demon.
    2(RR): Sirens not granted magic by default, must take it, are demonized for their acts. (weakest version)

    Explaining Pinkie Sense: Pwny Pony Pinkie, Brainhacker Extraordinaire

    So I've produced several (mostly scientifically-worthless but possibly making for good stories) hypotheses here:
    1. Pinkie's social powers and memory derive from memory-hacking everypony she meets. Ponies, specifically.
    1b. This is pid (pony ID) based, so pool clones do not benefit; this is whgat Pinkie actually acts like without her mental powerup.

    Points of Canon mini: ❧ s7e20 "A Health of Information"

    ❧Polymorph effects are getting more and more common, yet we keep running into things that they should solve ("It Isn't the Mane Thing About You").
    ❧Swamp Fever doesn't require the whole lifecycle to reproduce…or Zecora just had some of the spores still on her to give the doc. (On the flipside, kudos for actually making it infect those it came in contact with.)

Points of Canon mini: ❧ s7e20 "A Health of Information" · 5:12pm Sep 23rd, 2017

❧Polymorph effects are getting more and more common, yet we keep running into things that they should solve ("It Isn't the Mane Thing About You").
❧Swamp Fever doesn't require the whole lifecycle to reproduce…or Zecora just had some of the spores still on her to give the doc. (On the flipside, kudos for actually making it infect those it came in contact with.)

MitchH: Yeah, I marked that up to "this thing has active phases, and endemic phases. it just went into pandemic mode." Behaves an awful lot like a fungal disease, actually. And fungi have different modalities they shift back and forth between.

❧Mage Meadowbrook was an Earth Pony. "Mage" does not, then, imply unicorn magic in Equestrian…
❧Fluttershy doesn't want to be a tree that badly. However, this does provide a fairly swift way to become one, should she or another so desire.
❧Mage Meadowbrook is famous enough to be taught of, yet her discoveries are not in Twilight's library, except obliquely, and her library is not entirely in modern Equish…
❧"Old Ponish". :facehoof: (Crystal Empire doesn't speak it, for all that they were out of time. Causes problems.)
❧Fluttershy's "research skills"-she had those? …also, she translated one book sufficiently to reference it properly in less than a night???

There's no way this settlement made of wood in a swamp still exists unless it was only abandoned recently.

❧Very disappointed that nopony paid any thought to "can this cure return the fully-run Swamp Fever trees to pony shape"?
