For MLP long before the first season, for other settings depending on what happens in the text.

not bad, though you seem to be missing quite a few words, here and there.

Unfortunately, english in not my native tongue.

an editor might help, but it's honestly not as bad as some other fanfics on this site. if you keep writing this will most likely stop being an issue at some point anyway

Another brilliant chapter, I'm really enjoying this entire story. It's going to be interesting seeing how Sunset and Seth shake up and change Worm. They've already made a major change in killing Nilbog.

So Cauldron appears to not realize Sunset's true origins, which probably might be a good thing everything considered. Though it's possible that Rebecca was just lying to Legend in regards to Sunset's believed origins.

They aren't omniscent. They can't knew everything.

so what is all this based on? I know what the cat was and all that, but this world they fell in to i don't understand

Worm webnovel by John C. McCrae. The dystopian dark story about superheroes

It really dark and brutal, so be warned

:yay: for some more Worm in Fimfiction!

Read later! ASAP!

Well, there is unmatched stupidity. "She could destroy the earth, so lets not warn the trainer who is - as a matter of routine - going to demand she push for maximum power".

Still, the Endbringers should no longer be a problem.

She triggered a solar flare, the plasma and particles from which which transversed normal space (otherwise it would not be trackable or its path through space describable) to reach earth in 15 seconds.

It normally takes 499 seconds for light from the sun to reach the earth.

This requires reaching back in time and violating causality (it takes minutes to tens of minutes for the energy stored in the suns magnetic field to be released as a solar flare) to trigger the flare, pulling mass-energy through normal space at 33.27 times the speed of light (requiring something beyond infinite energy), shielding the rest of the universe from the side effects (requiring infinite shielding effects), negating several conservation laws (Momentum just to start, but since they're all linked anyway, violating one negates them all), and a lot more. She then reacted in microseconds to steer and cancel out that infinite energy with equally infinite precision (any error in manipulating infinity would produce an infinite or zero result) and then drained off the heat from an event that should have left a sea of molten rock instead of some ashes and a surface that people could walk on.

All while either falling unconscious or unconscious.

The Endbringers power is pretty ill-defined, but the original author has stated that it is NOT infinite.

Alternatively, of course, she could just be capable of redefining the structure and history of the universe over volumes much larger than the earth at ranges of at least 93 million miles - with the fine control to avoid wrecking the universe - while unconscious. That's still effectively unlimited with respect to the solar system, but at least it's finite and will not destroy the rest of the universe.

Ah well. Poking at the math of superhero stories almost always reaches absurd results one way or another. No one ever thinks about what the characters are actually doing or what side effects it would have.

First, magic did it. Secondly, an accurate explanation of what happened is a spoiler to the plot of this work. :scootangel:

...well this is a very scary and disconcerting view of Celestia. I'll be honest I'm not a fan of the idea the statues in the garden were once people other then Discord. The opening chapter of A Tale of Two Suns, though only a nightmare, does a very good job of demonstrating what a nightmare this is.

Still, I'm curious, so I'll keep on reading... besides, what has curiosity ever done to a cat? I'm sure it's nothing bad.

A biopsy has shown that he is actually a cat" [...] "And how long will it be? And where is Midnight?"

"We could not find him [...]

I'm not a medical expert, but I think a biopsy involves cutting open a deceased body, so either they did not do a biopsy or they did find midnight. if they did find midnight and do a biopsy that means that he cannot be a projection, so that argument is superfluous.

"Biopsy - an examination of tissue removed from a living body to discover the presence, cause, or extent of a disease."
"a bone marrow biopsy"

I was also not sure, but the encyclopedia says that it is taken from the living.

9537288
fair enough, but then how do they think he is still a projection if they were able to remove some tissue?

9537292
As i already said on another website:

Projections is a very general concept. Some powers allow you to create corporeal projections that have not only density, but also other biological and physical parameters.

Endbringers created by Eidolon's power as an example.
And according to the author of the Worm, Danny could summon rats from nowhere.

Brilliant chapter.:pinkiehappy: I think Coil will get a nasty surprise if he tries to recruit Lisa by gunpoint in this story. Of course that's if Calvert still became Coil, since there's already been major changes/ripples for the canon timeline.

I thought Worm was a video game?

Which is the point.

"Rubber Science" is what you get when a settings physics is presumed to be similar to realities except when it suits the action or plot. If the secondary effects, and their impact on history, are accounted for, then you have an alternate reality.

For example, in a relativistic universe, it does not matter how something moves from one point to another; if it completes the trip faster than light would make the trip, it moves backwards in time. If that does not happen in a setting - regardless of what reason is offered - then it is a non-relativistic setting. There is nothing inherently wrong with such a setting, but if the author then mentions things that rely on relativistic effects, then he or she is using rubber science.

Can mass-energy respond to an additional force, whether or not we call it "magic"? Then subatomic particles have an additional set of properties to allow that interaction, giving them additional decay modes, additional types, and much more. Subatomic physics becomes wildly different.

All conservation laws are linked. If you can violate one, you can violate them all - which makes worrying about the heat death of the universe quite meaningless since energy is no longer conserved.

You can still tell a good story with rubber science - most of the major "science fiction" franchises have told some good stories (along with a few clunkers), and so have superhero stories - but the best way to avoid subtle self-contradictions in so doing (presuming that you do not greatly enjoy coming up with hypothetical physics and examining its implications) is to avoid giving too many details.

I'm all for anything that warps, folds spindles and mutilates the canon Worm timeline.

Dear Luna, the original web comic was only really useful if you needed to self-induce chronic depression. It's basically Evangelion with supers.

This is clearly Contessa's OP Path to Victory power at work.

It must have told her that defeating Scion would be easier if they moved the statue.

Of course Contessa's power doesn't give explanations.

9524619 Yeah, do not read if you're at risk of depression.
