Yeah, I wasn't expecting that either. Let's see if it works with The Tumor.
SHE HAS WHAT
the ultimate reward
TH3 GR33N SUN
WHAT DID YOU DO?
GREEN MOTHER FUCKING SUN
EDIT: Damn! i was almost sure I remembered that there was at least one that wasn't a variation of "Green Sun"...
Wow, from update to totally off-topic discussion in thirty-six hours. Not bad. Tell you what... we're going to do a scene change once I get the art done, solely because the transition works too well not to, but Applejack trying out her planned daughter's name can be added to the same backburner that Pinkie Pie having mailed her console to herself is simmering on. Have a scene or two and then come back to the barn if people want. Don't worry, it's not a big deal, I'm sure she'll take off that mask before the act is done. In the meantime, however, you need to have decided what Applejack would name a daughter, because I know I personally don't feel like hunting through apple-related names that aren't already living members of the apple clan.
Also, in the department of stuff unlikely ever to become relevant, I'm looking for a few fraymotif names. Specifically the duo fraymotifs of Fluttershy+Rarity and Twilight+[everyone but Fluttershy]. So there's another avenue for creativity. If you don't know what a fraymotif is: their titles should be somehow related to the character/s involved (their interests/personalities/etc.), ideally incorporating one or more music terms, and receiving bonus points for puns. And heck, level names are always appreciated: realistically, the more level names a pony has, the likelier they are to level up. I have dozens, but there's always room for more.
...I feel like there must be something or other I should respond to that was brought up in the last couple pages, but I'm not sure what. I guess there was a discussion about suggestions and how much they rely on Homestuck-oriented information that hasn't shown up in the story itself, but I'd rather that be self-policing if at all possible, since authors trying to regulate what readers talk about just doesn't work. Be ever judicious? I dunno.
Ooh, this'll be fun!

^ I like all of these suggestions.
I'll need to think about this. Possibly know more of their actual titles - all that's been revealed is that Rarity isn't the Dame. (I have my suspicions re: Rarity and possibly Rainbow, and of course Fluttershy is the Maid of Cute, but...)
Edit: Also, and largely unrelated, it occurs to me to wonder whether the ectobio other ponies might be their G1 versions - Posey and Firefly and Applejack and so on.
Man, I stink at coming up with specibus-style names. Music, huh? This is probably horrifically obvious, but maybe "Hornkind" for Twilight. Y'know, because she's a unicorn? Yeah, I got nothing. I'll keep trying to think of potential echeladder levels, though.
Cmon! MDW is OBVIOUSLY Granny Smith!
Ok, I'm not as sure as before, but yknow. With the "go easy on your daughter" comment and all. My thought is that this is AJ's daughter.
But post-scratched session.
...Ok, that doesn't make as much sense as I thought. Or maybe it does...
A warning from... at least 8 years into the future, that's for sure. Why that late? If it's something that will happen within a day? (Or maybe several days, dunno.)
Gah, I never considered the Ectobiology thing about the Mane 6!
And anyone wants context MSPAwiki sounds like a good place. Find any crazy terms, just search the wiki!
Pinkie is probably the Bard of Doom. Or maybe the Bard of Space, given how she can break the fourth wall and whatnot. Twilight is obviously the Mage, although I'm not sure what of...maybe the Mage of Light or something. I'm guessing either Applejack or Rainbow Dash is the Time player, due to the MDW, but there are any number of explanations for that. RD strikes me as the Knight, and Applejack...I don't know, maybe the Maid.
If only we knew what he player of Doom's powers were...
Also RD as the Knight and AJ as the Maid works for me!

Also, I know you didn't ask for singular Fraymotifs, but I'd like to put forward...

>Hearth's Warming Eve: Commemorate events from a scratched session. This suggestion is really only being made to tie in with my next suggestion, which is...

Right, yeah. Oops. I really need to get more sleep.

Let's not forget that not every character's element will be something they're naturally good at... Sometimes your "assigned role" in sburb has to do with personal growth. Jade would probably have been a more effective Seer than Rose initially, but as Rose grew into that role she made it something Jade never would have considered. Likewise, we can reasonably assume from Karkat's comments on the subject that Kanaya would have made a fine Hero of Time, but then we wouldn't have seen Aradia's trial-and-error time travel culminating in an army of doomed future alternates.
I guess what I'm saying is, let Rainbow Dash be the dame, and see what she makes of it. Or something to that effect. Never assign someone to continue what they're already good at doing and nothing else.
Dammit I'm rambling again. I could go back and edit that paragraph down to two lines but it's not like it's tl;dr-worthy and I want to keep the examples involving Rose and Aradia. ANYWAY...
MORE ECTOBIOBABY NAMES I GUESS
Of course given that pony names are generally prophetic of their special talents, I have a few ideas already for cutie marks for these hypothetical shipping babies. In particular, Kaboodle would totally be an inventor.
Blanking on fraymotif ideas right now but I like all the ones suggested so far so yeah
