If the main OCs in this story were voiced, what would they sound like? How do I know this story won't die after only one chapter?

If you'd like to take a look at my other stories, you may find that 1) I tend to stick as close to natural show voicing of characters we know and make sure to give ones I create a discernable personality. This story is mainly focusing on the show characters listed with the addition of three others staying true to the mythological roots of the show 2) I don't leave stories unfinished - they may take a while to be completed, but I'll finish things once I start. I've got the entire story outlined and major events detailed. It's not an open-ended story or something where I intend to figure it out as I go.

So, I finished the story - updating every MWF until fully published.

I thought Mage Meadowbrook was a different pony than the Meadowbrook who was a Pillar.

There are a couple different takes on it. Generally, it hasn't been a great piece of continuity in the writing of the show with using a name that could be taken as a title or a family name instead of a specific pony.

Some have assumed that, due to Meadowbrook being better known as "the Mystical Mask", history accidentally acknowledged her as a different pony, or confused her with another mage.

Oh, so it's Shadow Play beat for beat, is it?

Could you elaborate? My story follows the S7 finale episodes, but it's not the same story.

I mean in terms of how Starswirl, Twilight, and Starlight are characterized and how their dynamic plays put, and in regard to the first two once again misunderstanding what a map mission is.

That's a fair observation to make. I do try and stay close to show characterization. Being as this story takes place right after Shadow Play, the continuation of those personality quirks shouldn't seem too out of place, I would hope.

The shame of it is, the show's characterization is off.

9398316
Not really. I have seen Them act like this plenty of times throughout the show.

Plus the show writers and creators know how characters are better then some random viewer.

Do they though? Without exception, they came on in Season Five or after. At best they know the characters they created, and even that's not a given. With the ones they inherited? No chance.
