FiM TNtMD - Page 45: A Hard Question by ArofaTamahn FiM TNtMD - Page 45: A Hard Question by ArofaTamahn

I had hoped by now to have prepared a prose adaptation of the scene with Nahmat that we missed, but writing good prose in a week while drawing next week's pages is hard for me.

But to summarize, like theirs, her world is mostly made of rock, with a cool, thin crust, a hot, liquid mantle, and a hot, iron-nickel core. Like theirs, her world is mostly covered in water, which can be naturally found in solid, liquid, and gaseous states. Like theirs, her world is covered in a thin film of air, made mostly of nitrogen, oxygen, crabon-dioxie and water. And, like theirs, her world is covered in life. This page outlines the differences, though she, as far as I can tell, hasn't yet mentioned that all the lights in the night sky are other suns, planets and galaxies.

Shining Armor has a geek for a sister, bless him, so I wrote this scene thinking he wouldn't be as dumbstruck by such a strange world as Cadance, who, as an Alicorn, was born to rule over natural order for the good of pony-kind.

Well, it actually turns out that Cadance is kind of a secret geek as well . . . who knew?

Also, given the fact that the sun and moon do not operate without being directly controlled, it seems quite plausible, and perhaps even likely, that Equestria has never existed without ecological engineering. Certainly it is hard to see how it could ever have functioned properly without something to cycle the heavens and provide a steady alternation of day and night. On what grounds, then, would you call that "unnatural"? This is, in all likelihood, as the Tree of Harmony intended things to be.

Normally, when something like that comes up, it's just semantics. You just need to agree on terms and move on.

In this case, they don't natively speak the same language to begin with, so it's not even semantics. It's translation.

Tell me about Cadence. Come visit us for a day and you'll see more chaos than Discord can probably offer.

"Welocme to the real world, BI***!"

but no, seriously, we dont get sick from the "spinning", so neither should they

it was never any big deal to me that the everfree forest functioned on its own... but rather the conception that the fact that plants and animals could function autonomously of each other was considered "UN-nantural" as in "incorrect" DID bother me...

surely the land wasn't always this well regulated into such synergy... (which in itself isn't a bad thing) frankly it is this synergy that makes equestria a nice place to live that doesn't need high technology to do it... especially made possible by magic... thus: more time and effort can be spent on character and integrity over material and profit, effectively choking the disease of greed well before it sprouts... for the most part... and motivation comes not from the chance of material profit as much as personal profit from the artistic and self fulfillment type of payoff.

there is natural, such as flowing water which is nice, there is natural like predators eating smaller creatures whcih is a sort of organized chaos in which the loser pays big time... obviously equestria has done well to look out for the little people... ironically the basic aim of Marx's communist manifesto...

It's all so true.

Despite the show's potential, I think ponies have WAY too much control over their world, but I don't think about it.-_-

I find this comic really clever. You hear one half of the story from one character's mouth and the other half from the other character's...
