    Friendly reminder to all and sundry that there's about three weeks left to submit your Most Delightful Ponidox. We've already gotten some great entries, but I'd love to see even more. And while I can't really accept it due to a number of logistical factors,

    Friendship is Card Games: Pony Life, Week 6

    I return from my latest foray into Zendikar with… middling success. Zagras only gets you so far when the rest of your Sealed pool is largely mediocre.

    FoME Thinks Too Much: The Royal Arsenal

    Ideally, all conflicts Equestria faces can be solved through the careful application of diplomacy and rainbow lasers. But even in magical lands of pastel ponies, ideals can fall short of reality. Enter the Royal Arsenal.

    Friendship is Card Games: Pony Life, Week 5

    And we’re back to G4.5 and the horrible web of lies that keeps Fluttershy thinking she’s involved in something intended for a much younger age group.

    Let’s not think too hard about potential connections there.

    Prefaced Insight

    Rules clarification for Most Delightful Ponidox: When I say that multiple instances of a character have to interact, that means that each must at least be aware of the other's presence. No looking at the other from Superman's Silver Age time-space telescope or suchlike. Use this handy,

That Which Wasn't Taken · 12:34pm August 13th

I swear I had no idea what I was unleashing with that poll. The good news is that the furor it caused was exactly the inspiration I needed to tie together an Oversaturated World story I've been chipping away at for months. It also means I have to remove another scene to slot in the new one. The original exchange is under the fold.

"I am not in a good mood right now, Rarity."

Rarity had become very familiar with Sunset's "barely dealing with the idiots surrounding me" voice over the past few months. "Oh dear. Anything I can do to help?"

"It's not you, it's... well, complicated."

"I'm always willing to lend a sympathetic ear, darling."

"Have you heard of the lost continent of Lemuria?"

"... I have a sense that this is going to be a long story."

"There are lizard people involved."

"On a lost continent named after a kind of monkey?"

"Yeah, I don't get it either." Sunset took a deep breath. "You said you needed to get into Equestria?"

Lemuria was a hypothetical way for lemurs to have made it from India to the island of Madagascar because plate tectonics hadn't been discovered yet. Or at least that's how it started before being absorbed into the Conspiracy Matrix (not to be confused with the Matrix Conspiracy) which explains why it has lizard people instead of SS&E fans lemur people. The More You Know©!

See, I just hear the word Lemuria and think of "that nutballs bad guy organization from Genius: the Transgression." Probably doesn't help that I write the specific crossover.

Ah Theosophy... so much fun if you can take it at face value and ignore the racist bullshit XD Sunset dealing with Lemuria would be pretty hillarious though.

I thought Lemurians were the bad guys in Risk of Rain

Amber's a good choice, tbh :twilightsheepish:
No comment on the misnamed lost continent that is actually called Kumari Kandam.

Both were taken from the same conspiracy theories, which I mentioned above.

...Huh. :D

Wait, it actually was named after lemurs? Wow, thanks!

Oh dear, lizard people? How would that manifest in the Oversaturated World?

Changelings are such an obvious 1:1 port of the conspiracy theories that it's kind of a shame that the Wholesome already exist.

Who do you think Sailor Orbital has been fighting? Turns out that Lemuria wasn’t so much ‘lost’ as ‘never on Earth in the first place’...

I like The Wholesome. Since we know what’s really up with them, more or less, it dodges the whole issue of conspiracy theories where they’re fun but when you scratch the surface it’s actually all about racism and/or antisemitism.

I've been looking on the Pantone website off-and-on to find a color matching Sunset's coat, in the hopes of finding what they had to say about the subject. And, I'm sad to say, I think I've found it. Let me curse you with knowledge:


(Admittedly, this description may be auto-generated, and thus not 100% accurate. BUT STILL.)

For reference:

Bah. You call that cursed? Brown is just dark orange, much in the same way that pink is light red.
