>RT: Woooaaaah... this is heavy. You gotta either trip out for flip out, the former option requiring you to find your LSD and take it.
... I feel like these incredibly weird, out-of-character suggestions are totally necessary. The day that one gets through, I shall flip a table in jubilation.
Rarity> DRAMA like a pro!
Rarity> Flashback to previous life?
No, don't be a bitch.
> GENEROUSforgive Sparkler her really quite understandable mistake.
> Send Miss Twilight a message asking if she has seen Sparkler's charges.
>R: Use your fine eye for detail to grasp the full severity of Sparkler's mane status.
You employ the ancient art of PILUPHRENOLOGY to gauge Sparkler's report's veracity by looking at her mane. She appears to be sincere.
>R: Drama like a pro!
"Oh, Sweetie Belle, my sister!" you moan. "Escaped into the wilderness of the city, unsupervised in a world of danger and intrigue! How has it come to this?! Did I teach you nothing of the respect due to one's elders? To disappear into Ponyville is one thing, but to abandon your caretaker and bring her to this state of distraction, her mane subtly unkempt? You have failed her as a foalsittee, but more importantly, I have failed you as a role model!"
(A lot of this is to make Sparkler feel better by shifting the blame away from her. Sweetie Belle and her friends explore Ponyville on their own all the time. Running away from their foalsitter without any notice, however, is quite unkind of them.)
"Sparkler, how I wish I could express my sorrow to you! That they have treated you so callously, so unthinkingly -- it is simply the worst! No, my dear one, dry your eyes --" you assume without looking that she is crying by now, if only at the power of your performance "-- you are not to blame in this. It is I who have erred, by failing to instill proper diligence in your charges. Alas, for I am a poor and incapable sister!"
You feel this speech needs a little something extra. Maybe you need to swoon. And to swoon, you'll need your COUCH...
>R: Decaptchalogue couch.
You prepare to try to decaptchalogue your couch using your JEWEL BOX MODUS. This glittering coffer used to hold the Elements of Harmony in Canterlot Castle, but you were able to convince Princess Celestia to give it to you as a reward for saving Equestria. Later you managed to repurpose it into a fetch modus.
Currently, six of the seven cards in your sylladex are in use. Besides your trusty couch, you have the MYSTERIOUS RECORD from your mother; your GLASSES, for use in emergency fashion design; a RARITY FIGURINE, from when Sweetie Belle and her friends decided to take up toymaking; your FIRE RUBY PENDANT, one of the most generous gifts you have ever received; and a pair of FAKE EYELASHES, in case... hmm. Well, just in case.
Whenever you want to retrieve something through your fetch modus, each card in your sylladex gets split up into three or more copies of its contents on an abstract playing board. In order to fetch a certain item out, you must remove all instances of that item from the playing board by rearranging their positions on the board so that they disappear in rows or columns of three or more at a time. (Moves that do not remove anything from the board are not legal.) For example, were there seven instances of your figurine on the playing board, removing all seven would cause the real figurine to be fetched from your sylladex, but removing only six would have no effect at all.
Here is the arrangement that your fetch modus presents you with this time. You must now present a MOVE LIST that successfully fetches one or more items from your sylladex.
Rarity: Fetch the Fainting Couch: 727377674546414033323031333416152322
-Nature of Sig-
Wow, that was NOT easy! I wonder how good Rarity is at this? Now let's fetch that couch!
For just the record: 323344342526
Now participating in Tartarus Fighters! Come, make a demon and battle in hell!
Has there been any luck with the other items? I've been trying for the Rarity figurine, and I think I've exhausted every move possible. No luck with the fire ruby or gushers/grist either. Damned practical mathematics, if only I'd listened!
It's possible to get the eyelashes, if you're plucky.
(instead of the couch, I mean. probably not both at once.)

Sparkler: Search for the CMC
-Nature of Sig-
Uh, that's not the quickest solution. It can be done in two moves:
which also sets you up to get the false eyelashes by making it 223254533536.
Nothing to see here.
Speaking of which, since I assume this is based of bejeweled, shouldn't one be able to move a piece into an empty square, if that would result in a match?
(Example: 73727767, the glasses near the top should be matchable regardless of the space being empty)
Also, is Pinkie Pie's fetch modus "set in stone" yet Violet? Can we offer suggestions?
> Sparkler: Take advantage of Rarity.
> Sparkler: Sigh loudly.
> Sparkler: Rate drama performance using your (up to now, useless) major in theatrical performances.
> Rarity: Switch to plucky mode and make a vow.

(speaking of different modes, you should try leaving out parameters in the link.)
It's set in wet sand or something. I have an idea that I kind of like, but it's not currently crucial to anything so I'd be content to change it if something better turned up. Same goes for Twilight's planet.Also, is Pinkie Pie's fetch modus "set in stone" yet Violet? Can we offer suggestions?
wow okay what> Sparkler: Take advantage of Rarity.
Bejeweled is a brilliant modus for Rarity. Yay!
*Sparkler has a sweet/sour bi-polar disorder, yes?
>Sparkler: Comfort Rarity.
>Taffy Machine: Comfort marshmallow pony.
Why, take advantage of her drama performance of course. *cough*
> Take advantage of Rarity................'s drama act for fun and profit.
Of course, this could work both ways.
> Rarity: Quickly counter-manipulate Sparkler's attempt of exploiting your own drama act (Manipulation double Reacharound). Nopony beats you at manipulation-off. You're simply the best there is.

I'd much rather see Sparkler say something along the lines of "I'm glad you're taking this so well."
