Eh, if they go into a legal battle, Trixie can wind up owing the money, but no, you can't legally sell yourself into slavery. With Equestria representing a more ideal world, I'm pretty sure they also have that as a law like America does.

It sounds like Limestone is getting emotional reasons involved here, so it is better for Trixie to just go to court and owe back the money, have her have to pay so much each month, that kind of thing. While you could talk about "honor" and "Dignity" of holding up to your word, it doesn't mean anything legally and, from what it sounds like, it doesn't mean anything to Trixie either.

Limestone is making an enemy of a princess, this is very stupid of her

"I want her to own up to her words!"

Does that mean she wants Trixie to start doing everything she says she's going to do? Or does Limestone to finish something she started?

8177349 All I have to do is point out 'Trade Ya' to show that a promise is legally binding, even if it involves slavery.

Trixie is my favorite character and I hate seeing this happen to her. That said, I have to say Limestone has every right to make Trixie work off her entire debt. It's time Trixie learned not to write checks are flank can't cash. Now, her flank belongs to Limestone for over a year.

All I have to do is point out 'Trade Ya' to show that a promise is legally binding, even if it involves slavery.

You say that despite the ruling that it wasn't a 'fair trade'. I have a good feeling that trying to sell a pony would always be considered a 'unfair trade', or illegal trade if the current princess was pushed to be that stand offish. :ajbemused:

Plus, that was two ponies, one being Dash, that probably knew as little about the law as most people. Indentured servant might make more sense. Fluttershy said she'd go with her to train the pet, but if she arrived, found she had to live outside, or other issuey living problems *and also had a spine*, I imagine she would just say sorry and leave. And while the other pony could be angry, they'd have to life with it or go to court.

With Trixie, she didn't make the deal at that trade place. She doesn't want to put in the work she said she would? Then she owes the money back. Simple as that. She doesn't have the money? Then it becomes a court issue, but Lime can't hold her their by fear and force. Not legally anyways.

The fact that Starlight and Maud helping didn't even count towards the hours Trixie worked, that's also low of Lime. She didn't make an agreement with the other two, but if she is pushing lines like that, then I am expecting that Starlight, Twilight, or Trixie will be telling Lime to screw off pretty soon.

8179239 I didn't say I like it. I'm not saying it's fair. I'm saying this is the Equestrian justice system. Trixie made a contract to work off a debt for x amount of bits. Trixie had no intention of upholding said contract. Limestone is making Trixie do what she said she was going to do. Trixie is about to learn two very important lessons:
1. Don't make promises you know you have no intention of keeping.
2. Never gamble more than you can afford to lose.

I'm saying this is the Equestrian justice system.

And my argument is that this is not the justice system, this is someone making a verbal contract that wouldn't hold up legally. Trixie agreed to do x amount of word for x amount of payment up front. She chose not to do the work so she owes the money back, unless they stated something else that would happen if either side broke the contract, but it sounds like they didn't.

There is literally nothing stopping Trixie from saying she'll just pay back the money and leaving the farm, legally or otherwise. She broke contract, so she owes either the money or the work. She can just choose to pay back the money, give it to Maud monthly or something. Done. Lime can't tell her she has to do the work and that's all she'll accept, that wasn't part of the contract.

This kind of thing happens all the time with contractor's. Lime is just lucky Trixie made a big enough deal out of herself to be noticed so Lime can try to get back her money. I get what Lime is trying to do, but Lime has no legal backing for this 'lesson' of hers, and a con artist like Trixie seems to be acting like would know that.

I really enjoy your discussion here. It makes me want to open the contract and Limestone's character sheet I worked out for the story. And I thank you Frankie2 to argue on behalf of the story and not your favourite pony.

The problem with that would be, if I continue, that I have to play favouritism to one side or the other. While right now I hit the perfect middle ground of making LimestoneĀ“s actions understandable and despicable.
(I can go and try to hit the balance again, but in the end I would have to choose who was "right")

someone making a verbal contract that wouldn't hold up legally

The Pie family has a written contract and since you brought up that contractors breaking treaties all the time. There is also the other side of the medal (i hope that is the right translation) with adhesion contracts. Were legal business becomes much more shady.

found she had to live outside, or other issuey living problems,

I am pretty sure I wrote that they had returned every evening to their home until they were to exhausted to make the trip back home. Then they got the guest room at the Pie family household. Does not sound to me like Limestone oversteps

I can give you a single reason Trixie is not already up and away by now. Starlight. Maud lives in Ponyville now, so getting to see her and pretending as if she turned over a new leave while hiding from her past is not an option.

"I want her to own up to her words!"

Does that mean she wants Trixie to start doing everything she says she's going to do? Or does Limestone to finish something she started?

Why not both? I picture Limestone as a pony that honors her word and does not accept anything less of others.

After mulling this story over, I think there is definitely potential for more. Limestone Pie needs more love and perhaps a sequel where she and Trixie at least learn to respect each other, or maybe even become friends.
