Doesn't count as a doublepost if you can't see them at the same time. :P
Hmm, not sure if OC, or Jade Harley pony.
I'm ok with either because adorables.

Recently I've gotten to wondering about the shape of the ponies' planet and the mechanics of the local star system around it. In regard to Prinecss Celestial "raising the Sun" I mean. That doesn't make a lick of sense in either a Heliocentric OR a Geocentric model. I'm stymied.
I've a theory about that actually, but people would probably brush it off as stupid because it involves the Sun in the FiMverse being made of magic instead of Hydrogen...
Yeah, bringing Discord into any given argument is null because, well, he's Discord. He can do that kind of stuff.

sig quotes I guess? (one of them)
It's based on a square video game map.
If you fly far enough south, you end up north.
There is no up or down.
Come to think of it, that statement is a bit confusing... She mentions "Earth" before it's named as such by Smart Cookie when they place their flag on the area of Equestria. This implies one of the following:
a) Pinkie Pie / Councilor Puddinghead are breaking the 4th wall and referencing "our" Earth.
b) Earth is the planet Equestria is on. Meaning ponies are precursors/post-human extinction inhabitants of Earth.
c) "Earth" (that is, soil, or landmass) is "round" naturally. Which could mean anything from a physics/geography standpoint.
Plus I think there's a globe in one episode.
And given that there's no indication that one side of the planet is frozen this precludes the sun from being left idling in the underworld or phebous apollo's garage or beneath great a'tuin or whatever.
Related to this, I'm fairly certain that Celestia has already seen visions of this potential calamity and has made Twilight Sparkle her apprentice/trying to get her to make friends in a DESPERATE attempt to prevent the above scenario from happening.
I should have been more specific. It doesn't make sense in a geocentric model with a spherical world. The sun is always over some part of the planet; it doesn't actually go down.
