    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.)

7.7 unicorns and the Dumb Story Idea · 6:05pm Sep 30th, 2017

I initially thought, on seeing the Starlight Glimmer tag, what with th

Sunset Shimmer. Twilight Sparkle. Starlight Glimmer.
6.7, 8.7, 9.7 (in terms of name length, first.last). All [astronomical light] + [gleam] names. All with streaked manes. All mares. So there's one missing. Shining Armor and Cadence have 7-long names, and were close enough to Celestia, but don't fit much of the rest of the pattern. Celestia secretly teaching Starlight could continue the sequence. There are, somewhat surprisingly, only two 7.7 unicorns in the wikia wiki: Officer Trotter [comics] and Blossom Delight. ("Erroria Animata", the alicorn filly, also fits, but is not on the wiki.)

So who would fit in the middle? Whom did Celestia teach between them?

taken from here and here.

antapex, aureole, azimuth, Canopus, cyclone, drizzle, eclipse, equinox, horizon, Jupiter, Mercury, Miranda, Neptune, perigee, Polaris, primary, radiant, rainbow, sextant, spicule, sunspot, T-Tauri, tempest, thunder, Titania, transit, typhoon, Umbriel

plus "glister" as one option for the "shimmer" replacement.

Distant Horizon?

I was trying to restrict it to "sky-related (preferably light-related)" + "gleam/glimmer/lustrous" as name-component meanings.
