Perpetually Confused


I can say in no uncertain terms I have no idea what any of this or why I'm doing it

It is interesting fact of pony life that ones cutie mark can possess more then one meaning, often being metaphorical and cryptic.

Celestia's, for example, not only means she raises the sun but seeks to be light for others, a guide. Shadow possessed a wingblade as hers, where its been proposed it meant her skill in asymmetrical warfare. She stated it meant she knew what it meant to use a blade, and that one always carried it with them, whether seen or not.

Star has always thought hers meant she was a tracker, a stalker. What it means is she is curious, and she by nature must follow a trail, a quarry.

She now stands at the side of one of the worlds greatest enigmas, a mare so apart from temper and manner as to seem almost antithesis to her sister. So, how does one seek such a trail, winding and working back through the long years of their Diarchy?

Simple. Approach the matter with the well known Kicker means of broaching the improper and possibly dangerous.

With all the sublety of a sledge hammer.

Okay I have to know. How much was taken from The Lunar Rebellion storyline? I'm recognizing quite a bit just from the description.

the clans were around a long time, though how much they were into the political sphere varied. Its something akin to church and state, or at least thats the closest we can come too in comparison. Hurricane, for example, tried damn hard to keep them separate as much as possible. He couldn't out right forbid them of course, but he could use his eloquence and subtle ways to dissuade them from the notion. When on matters of the clan as a family, he agreed, which was why he wanted them to try to have some seperation.

the pegasus, from what I've seen, have always had a problem with romanticization. Now none of this, in general, again from my perspective, is done from a place of malice or spite, but are generally well meaning. But it must be infuriating for anyone in charge of them that they seem to only budge a inch when they've taken a cattle prod to the butt.

From the description:

Celestia's, for example, not only means she raises the sun but seeks to be light for others, a guide. Shadow possessed a wingblade as hers, where its been proposed it meant her skill in asymetrical warfare. She stated it meant she knew what it meant to use a blade, and that one always carried it with them, whether seen or not.

You spelled that Highlighted word wrong, it should be asymmetrical. It's a commonly misspelled word so I figured I would point it out.

I hate to be the one to point it out, but if this was meant as an entry for the Imposing Sovereigns contest, I'm pretty sure it exceeds the word limit.

EDIT: My bad. I see now it's in a special non-competing category.
