Her Cutie Mark could have a more Nebulous concept like Pinkie Pies, why couldn't it?

Oh wow it took me forever to notice the top half of this page is mostly one giant panel. That's pretty cool.

Speaking of, the art of this comic is lovely, with all the angles and stuff. I just read the whole thing today, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Can't wait to see more. :)

And Vinyl in day-glo boy-briefs gives me life

The last panel is my absolute favorite and I have no idea why. It's just... amazing.

Also related is my opinion on Cutie Marks, summed up by Heinlein:

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

don't diss specialization too hard. There's an economic formula that basically demonstrates that it's better for everyone to focus on the one thing they do best, rather than try to do everything equally well-- even if a particular individual is better at everything than anyone else.  Suppose you can write books and bake cakes, and so can your friend.  She writes better than she bakes, and you bake better than you write-- yet you do both better than her. You're still better off if you dedicate your efforts to baking, and leave writing to her... and she does the inverse. In the end it means both more cakes and more books.

*shrugs* I find it wrong that a child is virtually branded with whatever skill they must have in the future without a chance to succeed on their own merits. Yes, I know the show's writers have said that no one is ever unhappy with their Cutie Mark, but I find that dubious and suspect that no one is ever unhappy with their marks and that everyone just goes along and accepts it.

If that is the case, it means that Equestria is a land that never changes, caught in stasis, which is something I'm against. Or it means that the marks themselves have a brainwashing effect, which is wrong for me.

*shudders*

NO ONE is ever dissatisfied with their cutie mark? How distressingly finalizing, as well as hard to believe. Individuals tend to fret on every aspect of their physical bodies, wondering if they'll ever be acceptable enough for the status quo. And a great big colorful emblem emblazened on one's butt would fail to inspire angst in literally any given case? I smell a rat, and not in that good Bee way.

Furthermore, Troubleshoes totally mourned his cutie mark. No takebacksies.

Pony Psychology makes no sense at the best of times.

"I saved the world from an evil tyrant who would have plunged the land into darkness, which would have caused an ice age dooming all life on this world!"

"Yawn, no one cares."

"Hey, guys, I take pictures of ponies in fancy clothes."

"OH MY GOD YOU ARE SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME."


"We were just attacked by shapeshifters who want to eat our magic and possibly our souls!"

"Yawn."

"We have to show this guest a good time!"

"PANIC! DON'T CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE GUEST IS WHO WE THINK SHE IS!"


"A dragon turned into a Kaijuu last week and nearly wrecked the town in greed-based berserker rage!"

"Huh? Oh yeah."

"Look, a Zebra, someone with a slightly different culture and style!"

"BURN THE WITCH!"

-.- *changeling triggered* at least we dont base our enter life style to a tattoo on our ass. No. Dont take a moment to understand WHY they are starving. If they want food and come forcefully and have the audacity to want to live and eat they must be evil! Sweet queen I hope there is never a pony named ethnic cleansing. otherwise his cuitie mark is gonna be an interesting one to say the least.


the roleplayer in me cant help that. sorry ^^"

lets take a few steps back for a moment.  A cuitie mark should be more like a suggestion than the THIS IS WHAT YOU DO.  which is one of many bigger issues than just. Trust your mark they make you EVERYTHING. 

1. A good bit of racism is in equestria there has to be a reason why ever forging creature who steeps more than a inch in is almost always hated and shunned apon. Changelings are starving and have invading to actualy eat. the villains! Remember thorax (as much as it makes me face hoof) how he was quite clearly scared and harmless they still pointed spears and were most likely gonna kill him.

2. Not a lot of control of the nation. The song our town....need I really say more. Look at that and try not to think of "pony goose steping....harder than you think." I also thought of Der Deutsche Reichstag zu Nürnberg a bit.

3. classism. applejack's outer family the oranges. and the filthy rich family. 

4. not a lot of political allies. the fact that they let was is pretty much a third world nation (the griffions. changelings. it appears so fare. and yakastan. we dont even know where the zebras live) fend for themselves and starve yet if someone in a pony town is sad for some reason they donate almost the entire time to that one pony. seems a bit of bs. 

thers a lot more. but I dont wanna sound like a trigger happy SJW on tumber. and bring more thought than there should be to a show about marking small colorful young equines that are past foal hood but not yet mares that spread the almsot magical felling that is the dopamine of acquaintance of others who you care for like family.   

if you actually read this far. thank you. this is mostly for shits and giggles and just food for thought. sorry for my awful grammer

Hey, I've had some of the same sort of discussions about some of the darker implications of MLP with TheOwlGoesMoo and others. Mind you, I stopped watching shortly after the start of season four (didn't like the direction the show was going), but those points remain true. 

You make some very good points.

I dont like how they just changed the changelings. ITs lazy writing. Personaly I have what I at least would think would be a WAY better reason for the changelings to be that way.

Thorax in at least two seasons down the way. at least. admit that he was a spy for chrisalis. and explain things from there point of view.

That the changelings were starving and the invasion was staged like a dine and dash. get in. Eat. leave. with celestia taking a fall to to try and keep the resistance low. After the blast to stop other hives form declaring war or attacking the ammount of emotion spreading around with almost no changeling protocalls outside of the crystal empire it seems to make more sense that they also got more food. And she sent him in to see if ponys could forgive the changelings at all. Or at least her. To try and intergrate. therefore she would not be "reformed" but all ready good and the lesson taught would have been There is two sides to every story and the world is not black and white. Only verying sades of gray. It also makes celestia more understanable on how it looks like she dose nothing while doing everything.


Iv even though of entire historys with ponys and changelings getting along. (more for fun fan fic ideas but still) and yet now anyone will only see changeling  as heartless cruel monsters that have had the crimes of being diffrent and wanting to eat and feed there young.


there is a lot of evidence to support at least most of the theory. No one was really hurt. Besides minimal building dammages no one was really hurt outside of a few scares.  Queen chrisalises acting. The queen of a race of shapeshifters couldn't even act or do any resurch on the pony she was protraying. Really? or would that make more sense to act like that infront of twilight and there for get ready to stage a fall. She even caught her and turned around for a few moments and let her escape. then the fact there is literaly nothing done afterwords about changelings. Literaly. The only scare we ever had seen was in the crystial empire when thorax came in.

Dude, I work with :icontheowlgoesmoo: on a project where Sweetie Belle has been adopted by her sister and lives with the protagonist of a sci-fi first person shooter, who is a child soldier who constantly wears a suit of half-ton armor.

You do not have to defend that right to me.

For me Cutie Marks are two things Literal and metaphorical.

Literal because they see an image and relate that image with a job of their Mark.

Metaphorical because the image has a deeper meaning of what it can mean and it can allow the pony to do going beyond the mark but in what it means.

A good Example Is Cheerilee. Her Cutie Mark are three flowers but that doesn't make her a florist.
