The princesses do have quite a bit of military power, but not in the sense of authority. They’re less like generals and more like attack helicopters.

depictions of human Pinkie Pie as far or even chubby are impossible in application, as her constant activity and energy will burn it off faster than she could gain from a buffet.

Aka the Cave of the Past from EarthBound. I prefer just calling it "The Place" after its theme.

There is worse even than that. In one timeline, the multiverse itself was ripped to shreds, and all that’s left is a garish and tattered patchwork of dimensional scraps where you can’t even trust the ground not to disappear under your feet.

Virgins, I thought.

Ah! So "Dovah" would be an originally Dovahzul word that got adopted into Tamrielic at some point in the millennium between the game’s time and the story’s present, then? Fair enough, that sort of thing happens all the time with real-life languages anyway.

Easy. Linguistic drift; in the N-Verse it’s 1000 years later, and in modern times. Hence why "douchebag" means "princess" in Tamrielic but "ruler" in Equestria (Fun fact: Equestria was founded around Skyrim’s time)

(Tamrielic and Equestria are actually closely related languages, despite the intrastellar gap. For example, "dragon" is "dovah" in Tamrielic and "dxve" in Equestria)


I feel compelled to point out that unless I’m misremembering things, "dovah" is technically a word in Dovahzul, the dragons’ own language, rather than the common tongue mortals speak, which are two separate things in-universe.

There is a worse timeline than the wasteland timeline. There is barely anything there, mostly monochromeish calm as opposed to the sepia windiness of the wasteland.

Unlike the wasteland, there are apparently inhabitants lurking around in this timeline. But no one knows exactly who, or what, they are…

Most of it revolves around a small group of series, mainly The Simpsons, Touhou, and MLP, but yeah, there’s a lot. I’ve since added Gravity Falls and Sonic SATAM to brief episodes of Arc 1…

The concept of democracy on a national scale is a completely foreign idea for ponies, who see no use for it. The rule of Celestia has simply been so benevolent that they have no reason to wish for any other system to exist

What do unicorns eat, then?


I tend to see them as regular herbivores. At least in my headcanon, equines — unicorns, donkeys, zebras, etc. — are herbivorous by default; the earth ponies’ partial lithivory and pegasi’s partial carnivory are the proverbial exceptions that prove the rule.

By extension, this also means that one of the biggest challenges of alicornhood is adapting to new dietary requirements — especially if you started out as an unicorn like Twilight did.

On another matter, you’ve gone and made me curious about this N-Verse of yours, now. What’s it about?

In the N-Verse, the word gets translated as "princess" because it sounds like the Tamrielic word for "princess", "duśbäg" (and yes, it’s pronounced "douchebag") (Tamrielic and Equestria are actually closely related languages, despite the intrastellar gap. For example, "dragon" is "dovah" in Tamrielic and "dxve" in Equestria)

@Ping_chan

also imagine if the magic mirrors weren’t actually portals to other dimensions but just teleporters to places on the same flat earth that’s too far for most ponies to travel to using normal means.


That sounds interesting! It would a pretty neat way of working in both original species and locations and a crossover or two…

Hmm… assuming a typical eight-times-the-size-of-Earth Minecraft world, flat and either disk or square-shaped, the Sun and Moon just go "beneath" it to account for the show’s canon astronomical behavior, it eventually fades into the Far Lands/the Wyld/whatever when you get to the edge, mirrors and suchlike portals to connect between distant parts and a pocket dimension or two… I feel a new headcanon coming on…

How far could a Rainbow Dash fly if she could fly without getting tired and taking a nap?


I wouldn’t know about RD specifically, but this reminds me of something I was thinking about some time ago. I like the headcanon that pegasi are more omnivorous than other ponies (as are earth ponies, technically, but in their case it rock-eating plus plant-eating, the pegasi still have the greatest capacity for meat, although their diet is still a lot more herbivorous than, say, ours). So it occurred to me that, assuming omnivory, a pegasus might be a very good explorer when it comes to crossing seas — all they’d need is a map and/or a compass for orientation, a cloud for resting and fresh water, a fishing rod or a net for getting food, and they’d be set for weeks at least.


@RhodieNite

Which of course begs a question — are Equestrian term limits ridiculously long, or are the sisters just that popular and have kept up a millennium-long reelection streak?
