The More You Know!
I like naming Applejack's foal Calvados (apple brandy). It works especially well if she is an AJ + R combination.
I don't think Hoofstuck titles need to be completely bound by Homestuck precedent. I nominate Futtershy as the Physician of Rage. The title is nicely ambiguous; does she heal anger through her ability to conciliate? Or is she standing a few strides from a berserk outburst?
I'm not sure I understand what Violet CLM is looking for with the Duo Strifemotifs. Could someone point me to an example in Homestuck or spell it out? Thanks.
Violet CLM, have you considered associating each pony with a musical note:
Dough -- Pinkie, our baker
Ray (of golden sun) -- Twilight, received as a gift from Celestia
Me -- Rarity, at once generous and self centered
Sow -- Applejack, the farmer
I'm not sure where to put Dash in this. Fluttershy already has a song; can anyone tell me the note she starts with when rehearsing her chorus in the first episode or calling the animals at the gala?
Dash is Fa(r). Just throwing that out there for you, It Was A...
Fluttershy is totally La. The whole lalalala thing just makes it click for me.
Fa is Rainbow Dash. - Far, Fast, Favored
I agree with La being Fluttershy.
There are other fraymotifs that were mentioned by name, but never shown, all of which are from John: Feathercadence, Pneumatic Progression, Breathless Battaglia, Ivories in the Fire (Together with Dave), Mixolydian Maelstrom (Together with Rose) and Fantasia's Inhale (Together with Jade).
I think Violet is looking for examples of abilities that the ponies can use together in the future, altough at the moment this would be hard, because we don't know any of their mythological roles, so we are making up the names based on what we think their roles will be.
The one between Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle has to be called Rhythm Heaven. That's all I'm asking.
Well, she did say that they should be music related. Let's see.
Pinkie: Pestiforous Polka.
Fluttershy: Carnagival of the Animals
Twilight: Classical Sympony
Rainbow Dash: Awesome Side of the Moon (Based on the album cover. Maybe a combo with Luna or something)
Applejack: Cidarppegio, Apploggiatura
For whoever the Time player is, there are also all sorts of puns to make on time signatures; cut time, common time, etc.
Twilight: Music Of The Spheres, Rondo Of Stars
Rarity: Symphony Of The Thousand Weavers
Partial update time. Almost done! I had a bunch of posts to reply to and thought I might as well throw in an image as well, plus goodness knows I love extreme zooms.
> FIRE! FIRE! FIIREE!! AAAAAHHHH!
...Fire. On a thing that appears to be either a book or a rug. On a green floor, near but not in a fireplace. With... either a vase or a table, I think, nearby.
...Fluttershy, what are you up to?
Hmmmm...interesting. I'm kinda curious about whether that's fire, or just Applejack in mid-appearification/disappearification.
You are the Cutie Mark Crusaders -- Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle -- and you have just set fire to Sparkler's living room rug. You were reenacting the hit stage show "2600," and Sparkler, the town foalsitter, stepped out of the room to see if her peanut butter cookies were ready. As it happens, one of the pivotal scenes of "2600" involves Pony John Cusack setting fire to the room. In the show, firefighters come in and rescue him, but... you didn't think quite that far ahead.
>CMC: throw the rug in the fire and drop it like it's hot
> CMC: Use the water from the vase on the dresser to put out the fire!
> CMC: Scream CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS FIREFIGHTERS!!! YAY!!!
> AB: You heard that sand puts off fire, so you get some from outside, come back, and drop it over the fire.
> S: Try to run around the fire to make a tornado, like you saw Rainbow Dash doing. That will surely work.
> SB: Be the more sensible of the trio, and use the water from the vase to douse the fire.
> Hairbrained plans: Collide with each other.
>Roll/fold the rug up really fast to deny the fire air and thus put it out.
> CMC: Each try to captchalogue the fires. If that doesn't work, use the sage advice of "stop, drop & roll" and roll that wooden log from the fireplace into the fire to put it out.
