I was hoping you guys would be classy and leave no comments on the previous page at all, but you didn't.

It's OK, I still love you guys.

Now, I'm gonna need to skip uploading on the 12th to get back on schedule. I know its a sucky thing, especially at a point this tense, but I literally finished this page a couple hours before I now, and I don't like running my schedule this close. Don't worry, I'll be working hard, and you can count on things getting pretty awesome.

And when I saw awesome, I mean, like, eruption-of–volcanic-ash-speeding–your-way-awesome.

I am never classy. I prefer crass over class when commenting; it's more fun to ruffle some fictional feathers. All my best comments are lewd, crude, rude, racist, sexist, and Marxist.
I have also never once left a truly perfect comment. I dream that one day the ideal opportunity will arise, but alas, that is in truth unlikely. Do you have any idea how rare a proper opportunity to leave a sexist comment is? At least ponies have the decency to have different races than real people do.

So, what do you say, Garret. Want to get your magic scanned?

ArofaTamahn could you describe WHY and HOW the Equestrian scanning of one's magic is invasive? I am curious...England emote England emote

Well if we're right about this, Magic is essentially a part of the ponies, right? Like super intimate. It's what allows a unicorn to use magic, pegasi to fly with their small wings, and earth ponies' close affinity to the earth. I suppose it's sorta like an organ to them.

I still don't understand why scanning his magic would be treating him like a criminal. It would be treating him like suspect and I don't see the problem in that.
I would have made everything so much easier for everyone.

Would you approve of the police searching your house the moment anybody accused you of a crime, regardless of whether they had any evidence?

sure, I've got nothing to hide. As long as they put everything back where they found it.
With stakes this high it especially wouldn't be a problem. Just an inconvenience.

HOLY. CRAP. Well, I don't know what happened, but at one point I checked deviantart and you had 25 new pages that seemed to have a lot of text. Being the lazy guy I am, I deciced to put it off until later. I AM NOW KICKING MY PAST SELF IN THE A*buysomeapples*S! These pages have been INCREDIBLE! This story is AMAZING and you have developed it so well! Even in the description, your arguing of points has been quite developed, and I enjoy reading EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE! Thank you so much for this amazing comic and I'll keep current from now on (circumstance permiting).

Feel like this whole time, this was just an echo of Garret and that he died the second that Gralo possessed him. He's kinda just on auto at the moment until Gralo has to pull the breaks, like he's probably about to.

Page 78. Last panel. The magic shop where he was trying out all those wands to absolutely no effect, now going out of business after another griffon asked for help with a wand that Rarity had put back. Gralo had stolen all the magic from the shop, which is now being shut down, with what appears to be a police officer writing down notes for a police report. The preceding panel is the tree Nat kicked and immediately lost more leaves than it should have from the force of a magical doppelgänger in the form of a pony, which by all rights would have a limited physical presence. A tree that, not moments before, the mane 6 and Garret had been right near as they spoke with Fluttershy. We can see Gralo is indeed using Garret as a vessel, and stealing away much of the magic that surrounds him.

Page 58. Panel 10. This leads me to believe Garret is still alive and well, and Gralo is indeed only posessing him in the back of his mind. Garret is completely unaware, and as soon as Gralo interrupts Garret's train of thought, Garret is genuinely confused and doesn't even know how he lost his train of thought, much like how Twilight was caught confused about what had terrified her so when she re-opened her door that morning to find a blond-and-yellow mare standing there.

I believe you were also alluding to the use of "autopilot," until Gralo pulls the "brakes" to take control for himself. I believe this does not necessarily contradict Garret still being alive, well, and for the most part, in control until Gralo deems it appropriate to take over as needed.

I don't about him being dead, I mean echos of ones body and thoughts are usually repeats of them self's before they die. Garret seems much more alive then dead in body and mind. Nat thought that Garret was a walking corps (kinda like an echo but with no mind of its own) used to mask Gralo's true identity. I think Garret is alive and has no idea that Gralo is inside him. Echos usually don't have plausible deniability see how the cant act like a normal living being

But the previous page (and the first few panels on this page) show Gralo flying away… Meaning Gralo is no longer possessing Garret… So if Twilight scans Garret's magic, there shall be no trace of him!

The most simple solutions are often the ones we see only when it is almost too late.
Because yes, if Gralo really has nothing to hide, accepting a scan is the best way to proove his innocence, and avert the threat the "dog" is to him - unless of course, he DOES have something to hide.

So... scanning him would have yielded results that would have proven Gralo being real and Celestia was against it. After Nahmats speech, she will fall into heavy depression when she hears, that Twilight managed to get Gralo to reveal himself.

She pretty much did it again, ignoring a huge threat to her kingdom and letting Twilight save the day yet again.

It's no surprise. The author of this has already made it very clear that he's annoyed with the way Celestia acts in the series.

Yeah. My way of describing her, before Nahmat's rant, was lazy. I actually faved that part of the comic because it described how I saw Celestia so well. Granted, she's very kind, but... well, Arofa already said it.

I'm kind of hoping that this comic actually DOES have Celestia learning from her mistakes and taking an active part in stopping Gralo (and not getting Worfed in the process).
