Thanks for the fav! :pinkiehappy:

I was planning on doing a review of your story Grief is the Price We Pay in a blog, and as this is technically the first time I'm doing a review of any kind, would like to know if I need your permission to do so. If not, I understand.

It's all relative. As you said, they were outside of time, where it couldn't affect them. All that meant was that time ceased interacting with them for a time, and only resumed when they returned again, picking up from where it left off. As a simplified analogy, it's like when you're microwaving a burrito and then stop the microwave before it finished for a certain space of time. When you resume the microwave again, the burrito doesn't suddenly overheat catching up during the lost time it could've spent heating up in-between, now does it?

Another way to look at it is that simply not nearly as much time passed from their perspective while they were in Limbo. That's actually a bit simpler to picture, honestly.

Thank you for noticing that and also, how come Starswirl and his friends haven't turned to dust by time. I mean they been outside of time and how come time doesn't affect them? Magic cannot do the impossible, science can screw time & space but not magic. No matter how powerful it is.

Thanks for the fav!
