Huh. Looks like Gloriosa's doing camp counseling regardless of species.

"the Walls of Fruitless Endeavors," also known as the wall of the Crusaders' clubhouse in general.

“B’s.” He shook his head. “My god.”

:facehoof::rainbowlaugh: You wonderful, absolute madman.

The therapeutic aspect of the Scootasuit is genuinely heartwarming.

Fantastic opening, especially the narrator getting a second wind on those metaphors. Eagerly looking forward to more.

Absolutely fabulous, as usual. I may have teared up a little bit at the hidden secrets of Scootaloo's suit, but the giggles that the rest of the story had in store balanced it out quite marvelously.

Yep. Much like Celestia is generally a teacher and protector, in some form or fashion.

*grateful bow* Many thanks.

On the Scootasuit... yeah, I thought very carefully about including that.

Chaplain said it best, I think, when he said that comedy is a sad art. I interpret that to mean that comedy cannot live long without tears, any more than horror can live long without hope. So I knew there were going to be some somber (or at least semi-somber) scenes now and then. The Adam West show had ‘em as well (mostly in the Catwoman episodes, as I recall).

But, this is Batmane. I haven’t decided to what extent his origin is like the classic DC Batman. But being a version of that particular Eternal Champion, however much removed... well, there’s just no way that Batmane wouldn’t help a child as much as he could.

Additionally, while Batmane adores all the CMCs, there is also a special bond between him and Scoots. I’m not certain if it will ever come up directly in-story, but in this continuity her parents are not merely absent.

I confess, I was a little concerned that the suit’s secret would distract from the flow of the tale, but in the end it seemed character-breaking to omit it. I’m glad it worked. :twilightsmile:
