Foxhelm


Found the show in late 2015, and fell in love with it. I also like D&D (3 and 3.5), Fansty novel and movie, Sci-Fi movies. MarbleMac is Best Ship and Flashlight is a fair second

Twilight and the Mane 6 should turn tail and run, once back at home they could contact Celestia and have her send in the Army to check that town out along with Shining Armor so they can make sure NOTHING happens to anyone there.

Well, they are an hour walk from the closest train station, there is also the train schedule that needs to be acknowledged, they have no skyboat and while Fluttershy, Rainbow, and Twilight can fly... that's not a practical choice.

Okay, full of references and lampshades as usual. I'm a little confused by the references to your Rainbow Rocks-inspired story. Is there a particular reason why you publish your stories out of order? That Dark tag is scaring me a bit, but I'm looking forward to the rest of it nonetheless.

8473143
There is a reason for the out of publishing, I had the first chapter of this done before the other. I have done this before.

8473640
Well, by the time that I decided to give your series a shot, you had published your stories in such a way that I was able to read it in order. By the way, what did happen with Twilight and you-know-who at Midnight Castle? :trixieshiftright: You know what? You don't have to answer that. I just wanted to give you a shifty eyebrow regarding that little tidbit. :rainbowwild:

8473655 you'll have to wait and see for the answer:raritywink:

New story, new enemy. And you'd think they learned to trust Pinkie's instinct by now...

8473689

What happened to the Dazzlings? Not sure how the events of Rainbow Rocks would translate in this serie: did they merely lose the " siren" aspect, or lose all access to magic ?

8495383
Please be patient, it is coming.

Now that's how yah start things off.

'till now, same as the show. Can't wait to see when the twist will arrive!

1. So, is SugarMac canon to this series now? :applejackunsure:
2. Yay, Pinkie Tales! :yay:
3. That scene with the muffins makes so much more sense now. By the way, how many of those muffins would be needed to make AJ sick?
4. Who has the strongest stomach in this continuity? I mean, canonically to the show, Pinkie does because she regularly eats stuff that normally isn't food, probably a family trait.
5. How are you going to adapt the movie? I mean, focus gems are the equivalent of horns, and unless I'm mistaken, they seem to be replaceable in this series. Breaking a focus gem just doesn't seem as crippling as breaking a horn.

BTW, I haven't seen the movie yet. I just know Tempest's motivation from the promotional materials. I'm waiting for the video release because I HATE watching movies alone, and all my movie- watching buddies (aka my parents and siblings) and I are all too busy and/or cheap to go to the theatre in the middle of the school season. Our go-to theatre season is the Christmas week.

4. Who has the strongest stomach in this continuity? I mean, canonically to the show, Pinkie does because she regularly eats stuff that normally isn't food, probably a family trait.

With all due respect, I think SPIKE has the strongest stomach. I mean, we're talking about somebody who ate a "baked bads" muffin and LIKED IT. Mind you, we're talking about the muffins that made PINKIE (among other ponies) sick.

8496289
Okay, its clear 8495777 was referring to the mane6. Which in the show is Pinkie Pie (cartoon logic and or rule of comedy not withstanding), here a mmore realistic approach is taken, being a farmer and needing to live off of a shoestring budget at anypoint for any amount of time due to possible crop failures and such Applejack growing up could not be picky about what she ate, thus she can run a wider array of food sources than her peers. As for Twilight, she's an ascended demigod and this about the last week of summer-first week of fall and her ascension took place about two weeks tops before the Summer Solstice, so only a hand ful of months at the most.

8496361
So, I'm guessing that the short answer is AJ followed by Twilight, correct?

8496395
As things currently stand, yes

8495777
1) Up in the air, but it and MarbleMac are not necessarily mutually exclusive
2) I enjoy them too
3) No idea, the fact should stand that one muffin won't
4) See my other replies
5) I can't tell you without spoilers, but in Erisomachy I do call out the 'third-eye' or pineal gland, which is in line with the center of the forehead, which is counted as the thought or vortex chakra in Hinduism, the chakra that deals with enlightenment, and in The Great and Powerful Amendments I point out that not all focus gems are worn one's head, in Trixie's case her focus gem is more in line with her throat, and back in Revenge of Nightmare Moon Celestia pointed out that not all Magicborn need to use focus gems. And there is still what Didj, the artist whose My Little Mage fanart is the base of all this, will draw.

The cat's out of the bag! And more foreshadowing!

“You almost had it Applejack,” Pinkie tried to cheer on the paladin, but that went over like a lead balloon… “Hey, Foxhelm, you know the Mythbusters proved that a balloon made out of lead foil can still float when filled with helium as long as there are no holes in it and/or doesn’t tear during the ninety-sixth episode of the show, right?” Pinkie reminded the author.

How is she still doing that? She's been equalized. :applejackunsure:

8507744
It's the last thing she could until the process took hold. Also this is Pinkie Pie and to quote Commander Firebrand "Don't question it."

By the way, how do you feel about the headcanon of Sentry and Magnus being related?

8507839
With Magnus being a great-great-great (point having been made) uncle to Sentry (which is my headcanon)

Wow, this story was the most on point with the show than the others, except for the occasional reference to future and past episodes.

Nice work.

8535962
Yeah sometimes there are not much I can change, but you might be in for a surprise in the next couple. :raritywink:

Not much of a change from canon. I don't have anything else to say. Although, Twilight deflecting those spells was pretty awesome.

8535995
Yeah most of the differences here are minor and subtle. But remeber Twilight bashing the spells part, it might not be the only time I employ it.:raritywink:

To me the more the stories directly follow the episodes the less interesting they become. Retellings are usually only interesting in the changes and the less the changes matter (particularly in what characters show) the less interesting it gets.

My favorite moments in the series are things like how Dash and Rainbow interact in the Gala story where your new setting and the slight changes in the characters show off something new.

I am not saying that you should not keep the basic plots but like the Gala story I think some of these stories should do more to show new things about the characters things that the show does not get to do.

8536306
There's not much that needed to change for this story in my eyes, a lot of what I thought could have made this episode better are more like nitpicks and minor things. Like for example having Fluttershy staying in Starlight's house and her waiting until Party Favor was saying that the others didn't 'break' to tell Twilight et al about Starlight, a call back to 'baked bads', debating who should act like they were converted before Fluttershy agreed to do it, and few other minor things.

So sometimes there aren't going to be major changes.

However, I do have quite a few plans for the few stories.:raritywink:

8536399

Oh do not get me wrong I do not think one needs o make major changes to the story. What I do think is that remaking a story needs to show something new that the original did not. The basic plot can remain the same but perhaps seeing a new side to a character or really adding depth. You have an excellent chance to do that and personally I think you should whenever you get the chance.

8536455
Sincerely speaking, I don't have much against the episode as it was, a few minor things here and there, but all in all I found the episode to be really solid.
Now the season 5 finale and season 6 openers. .... well lets say there are things in the works...:pinkiecrazy:

Very little I can say about this other than, well, great job on this story overall. Again, pretty faithful to the actual episode, but there are subtle details that make it more enjoyable. Overall, the exchanges, characterizations, action and future story set-up are all well done in all the right places.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that THIS version of "Friendship Games" will be going into detail concerning the adventure Twilight's friends are on while Twilight herself and Spike are busy trying to stop Starlight from messing up the time stream. But I will admit that I COULD be wrong.

At any rate, I will very certainly be looking forward to more of your work, but will also respect if I need to be patient.

Sorry, but no spoilers, Darling :raritywink:
