Why? Why is this even a question? Why is this something you think up? I'm not going to call you names, but I want to understand, why do you think of these things? What draws your mind to it and what makes all this mutilation so fascinating to you, Somber?
You start with mutilating Blackjack all the time, which is okay and all, but then it gets to the point where she becomes rape Jesus and such and it's a little weird in retrospect.
You tear off one of Glory's wings not all too long before that particular act.
Then you fuck around and say that Littlepip should've been raped over on the TVtropes forums, claiming it would've done her character good (somehow)...

...And now, well, I won't say you're planning on adding this to the story and I'm not trying to imply that, but you're thinking about the very act.
You hate Luna, don't you? You always treat Luna like shit, but this? ...This is worrying. What is it that draws you to (the thoughts of) such acts all the time?

...Well, no. Scratch that last one. I don't think you'd repeat that little maneuver.

You ever wonder what would happen after a thermonuclear war? What if we add some super-mutagen? Maybe an elder thing from beyond the black between the stars?

Mutilating a person is horrible. Mutilating a fictional character, not so much. With a fictional character, when something bad happens often the default response is no response. Think of the hero of a generic action movie mowing down dozens of 'bad guys'. Do you honestly care at all about the bad guys being shot, de-limbed and exploded most of the time? You have to build sympathy for that character first, build up that believability because characters aren't real and we know it. You're treating our academi-ish discussion like we're considering hurting a real person. We aren't. Luna isn't real, and she's not going to feel pain or anything else from loosing an already-imaginary wing or horn until we make her real.

More interestingly, Enchanted Comics was presumably in operation prior to that, too. So I'm thinking the owner of that shop could have survived the apocalypse by reading himself into one of his own comics and then refusing to complete the plot. Maybe a lucite-encased copy of Sword Mares #1, where he could run off and set himself up as king of a remote village for a couple of centuries...

Imagine how nutso he'd be by the end, if he got taken out. =P I guess you'd have to work out some sort of basic rules for how those work, like "no aging in the comic zone" and "if you die in the comic it restarts" or whatever. Could be a fun little thing.
Power Ponies:

But what if you DO age inside the comic?

Suppose it's like a pocket dimension, populated with illusion ponies.  He brought in a few dozen ponies who all got themselves set up as noble houses, with strict marriage rules (because you can't breed with illusions), and so now it's ten generations later and the kids are not aware that their world is a fake, except for maybe one or two who pass down the big secret and work behind the scenes to ensure that the quest never gets finished.

And then some young idiots figure out that their uncle is "in league with" the villain and finish the story despite him, and suddenly fifty-odd ponies get dumped into the wasteland with no knowledge of it but great skill with armor and medieval weaponry...
This line of thought is awesome. :D

I agree with all of this.

Except that Luna didn't lose a wing or her horn, because in the original fic, Nightseer was wearing her skull and bones as an outfit. Her wings were mentioned specifically, and there was no mention of a missing horn.

I understand where you're coming from, but you miss my focus. My focus is on why is it these types of mutilations that Somber loves oh so much?
It's not normal. I understand he's writing in a post apocalyptic setting and fair play that there's going to be some real grimy moments, but Somber seems almost fixated on having traumatising mutilation always be involved and it's worrying, to be honest.
It's as if he simply can't go without thinking of ways to be brutal to others, even if they are fictional characters.

These types of mutilations? What kind of mutilation isn't traumatizing? Injuries range between scratches and death, and with the very frequent occurrence of injuries in these types of stories a few that qualify as terrifically horrid are going to happen. Really, what's more worrying is that you keep on expressing concern for Somber's mental health when what you're really doing is making a mountain out of a molehill.
It's as if you simply can't go without criticizing stories without implying that the author's insane.

It's not so much the fact its used at all as it is the amount of it.
Coming up out of the blue and asking what if Luna had her horn* or wings blown apart by a terrorist act?

edit: just realised I wrote own rather than horn. My bad.

While I think this is an overreaction. There was a time Somber didn't go to the hospital because he simply couldn't afford it and it turned out to be something serious when he got the donations to go.

Could be he's genuinely worried. It is the time of year people tend to be lacking in funds the most though I personally don't think the question was anything to worry about.

It wasn't out of the blue. It was in the middle of a discussion about whether the Eclipse model cyberization was designed with the in-development IMP alicorns in mind or Princess Luna (or, later, simply as the end-of-the-line super-soldier model for unicorns, pegasi, and earth ponies), so offering a rationale why there might be people designing it with her in mind was entirely pertinent. It would be startling if nobody in the government were thinking along those lines after Shattered Hoof Ridge, and by extension, it's something that Somber has to think about to make the setting the best and most consistent it can be.

Isn't suggesting a horn needing to be replaced with cybernetics inconsistent? A horn has been shown to regrow twice. Once in FO:E and once in PH.

Fair enough, but for morale purposes that's a scar. A leader that returns the same is better than a leader that returns scarred. The metal horn would just be "Hey, remember when I got this blown off?" you can do it sure, but in my opinion it is not the ideal option.

Maybe, but then again, they weren't exactly rushing to make people forget about Big Macintosh. Image could easily spin that into pro-war propaganda.

The issue I tended to have with it, though, especially the suggestion that it could be used as a way to make her more intimidating, is that Luna is a shapeshifter.

That's fair. Still think they'd avoid it as much as they could. I'd think regrowing would generally be preferable to replacing.

I'd forgotten that. She did shapeshift in the story didn't she? I was gonna say that was just a thing in the show but she did turn into eclipse. Having nightmare moon in place would be intimidating enough for the Zebras I'd have to wonder if Equestria would understand she was just putting on an act. I'd think so.

Excuse me, but are you attacking an author based on the fact that he has a condition?

Yes, people are entitled to their own opinions. Whether you like it or not, I have to respect that some people might not enjoy something that I do ... but attacking an author's mental disorder is where people should draw the line. You basically saying that it is his condition that's at fault for you not liking PH. And that is in itself offensive to me and anyone else who has a disorder.

Maybe that wasn't what you intended, but it wouldn't change the fact that it's still offensive. You can dislike the story for BJ being "OP" or "A bad OC" ... but what you did was just something I can't tolerate.

Coming out of a "swords and sorcery" comic, they might do really well getting "transported to a new world" full of hostile beasts and poisonous zones. Though their sorcery might not work as expected...

Actually, this would be a really clever way to acquire a Rampage-esque melee specialist. The hero of the story could read himself in and proceed to complete the plotline. Whoops.

Aaaaand this should probably move over to the discussion thread...

Moodyman90 wrote:I may be misinterpreting the question, but Pipbucks probably have a better explanation than Pipboys when it comes to VATS and all. In the very least Pipbucks run on a Spell matrix which makes more sense to me since using it causes the Pipbuck to cast a short term speed spell on the user...
I could explain away VATS in Fallout as the game-interface expression of a targeting assist system, like a smartgun in Shadowrun, while I think of SATS as a spell that speeds up her mind so she can consider her actions at the speed of reflexes. But I'm not really asking "how does SATS slow everything down?" so much as "How does it know you want to use it in the first place?" Pip typically just says she 'dropped into SATS', which makes it sound like a purely mental action -- which means the PipBuck has some rudimentary capacity for mind-reading.

You think I'm fucked up, Kippershy?  I got NOTHING on the fucked up shit real life comes up with all the time.
Really now? You list nazi experiments, the Holocaust, assassinations, etc. and then put this on there with that stuff? Yeah, this is SO horrible.
*sigh* lets not get political with this...it was going to end badly, now it's only going to get worse...
Let's not.

*sighs softly*

Well I guess it's not really a good time to post, but I finally got the rest of the commentary for the chapter done...

*nuzzles Somber just barely*

Chapter 62b Commentary part 2:


I know it was a pretty big conversation over in the art thread about Blackjack's armor.  To an extent I do agree, it's an unusual choice for Echo not to have given her some plating to cover her crotch, especially after Lighthooves cracked her there in their last fight.  I really don't think it's a problem though.

Blackjack being pregnant was a definite surprise, unless she left something out, P-21 is heavily implied to be the father which... I think I'd be just fine with that.  Of course Glory could still be too, that's not entirely ruled out.  There's so many things that could possibly go wrong, I'll just have to add a healthy foal to the list of things I'd like if Blackjack gets a happy ending.

Using the scrap plating as shields was definitely a smart move, as was trusting the wings to work instead of trying to force them like she did with her legs.  It's always good to show in little ways like that that she has learned from her experiences.

As much as it wasn't a very pleasant experience for Blackjack, tactical distractions are every bit the valid move, and it worked pretty well too.  I don't blame her at all for slicing Chicanery's camera though.

It's really sad to see Thunderhead falling apart from the attack...  To think of all the ponies that might have been in the segment that fell.  I really do hope they were able to be evacuated...

Without the horror of Blackjack's surgery to offset it, Boo being able to say "Bwackjack" goes from incredibly meaningful and touching straight back to being rediculously adorable.  She may not appreciate it as much, but I'm happy Blackjack got her to wear the operative barding.

It's also great for getting ponies to mistakenly think she's Blackjack, which may or may not be a good thing in the future, but it can certainly be funny.

"I'm thinking of renaming her the Rampage, loading her up with beer and hookers, and becoming and earth pony sky pirate." - I think this is a fantastic idea, definitely better than dieing.

"Boo?  What do you think?" "Bwackjack!" "She can talk?  Quick!  Say 'booger'!  'Shit!'  'Harlot!'  'Batsuawa!'  'Trickle down economics!'  'Pink!'"  "Bwa?" - I've said it before, but Rampage and Boo are still my favorite characters, even more so for this scene.

"I'd been mistaken on my speed in the tower.  I was no faster than Morning Glory," - For all she had to give up for those wings, I feel a little sad for Blackjack that they aren't faster.  Although understandably that would have been a bigger drain on her power, and would have made people complain even more.

I did enjoy the little scene with the Castellanus shooting the snot out of the Sirocco.

"I could see the horizon curving ever so slightly.  The battle below became little flickering dots and larger flashing ovals." - This is a really pretty scene to imagine, maybe paired with some soft, peaceful piano music, even if Blackjack watching her power dwindle away is frightening.  Cyber wings seriously need to come with an emergency glide system...  Darn lack of saftey regulations...

I'm really sad Blackjack lost her sword too, it's been a very important part of her arsenal for quite some time now, and was the last real weapon she had left.

"The blank bit my mane and hauled me over the lip" - I had wondered before if the cloud-walking spell had helped Boo to haul blackjack up after jumping out of the Raptor, but no, it seems she is just /really/ strong.  So much for those people who said she couldn't do "Rampage Diplomacy" on my tumblr, heh.

I figured since it was the middle of the chapter that Blackjack (and hopefully Boo) would be alright, but it was still pretty sad.  If one or both hadn't made it, at least they would have gone out with a pony who cared about them...

I really don't know what it could possibly mean that Blackjack is dreaming about being Echo, but I certainly don't think it means anything good.

"I'll bite you to death!" "Oh.  It is you.  Hi." "I dropped it!  Haven't you ever just dropped something before?" - After such a bleak dream, it's nice to have Blackjack being so cute, even if the situation is still just as dire.

If I were in Blackjack's place I think I could totally put my faith in Boo too...

I'd completely forgotten about EC-1101's routing, I'm glad Blackjack didn't.  So the next destination is straight down in the Core...  In a way I wonder if it's actually going there on its own or if it's Cognitum pulling a string.  Or if everyone's speculation is right and Echo is returning to Luna...

"Ah yes.  I am not the only one who'se undergone some changes." - So apparently the killing joke escaped, heh...  As funny as that is, I'm /really/ glad Glory and the rest of the team weren't there when that happened.

It's really nice that Glory was able to minimalize the casualties of the attack on Thunderhead.  I was really worried about that...

I'm also really glad she didn't freak out about Blackjack's appearance...  Hopefully they'll get a chance to reconcile things before the end...

So Glory's plan to deal with the crisis was to take her father out of stasis?  Well as long as she can keep him stable with potions it's not a bad plan, having a figure of authority to look up to is very important in crisis situations.

I hope they were able to get Thunderhead far enough away to clear the blast zone...  Sure the whole point of pegasi cities is that they're supposed to be moble, but that doesn't guarantee anything.

I also hope that's not the last time Blackjack and Glory ever see eachother... it was really close to feeling like a "goodbye".

I'm not sure "easy" is the right word, but Blackjack certainly seems to be dealing with the idea of destroying the tower a lot better than she has other times.

It's definitely a good thing she was able to get past the cyberponies in the work area without a fight...  She has been slowly getting better at diplomacy over the course of the story, as I think I've said before it's nice to see it actually working too.

I absolutely love the conversation between Blackjack and Lighthooves.  It's a great buildup to their final battle, and was handled very well.  Especially "You're not the Princess... piece... thing on the board, you're just a prawn too.  Or are those horsies?  Or maybe one of the castle thingies."  Even being a such a terrible crisis, or maybe because of how tense the conversation was making everything, this was really adorable.  It is a great scene though, right to the end of Blackjack tackling him out the window.

"Command: snapped strings." - Yeah, this part is a definite ouch...  They really didn't deserve it...  Hopefully the ones Twister captured didn't get hit by the signal.

Yay for Boo!  I knew she could do it.

Their fight was handled well, I have trouble even imagining how it could have been before you decided to add to it.  Lighthooves' death may not have been as horrible as he deserved, but I think it was fitting enough.

"I don't need a chance.  I have a megaspell." - So that's what was on the paper, no wonder it could motivate ponies so well.  In my head, her delivery of this line was movie-grade cool...

I'd completely forgotten about the megaspell chambers, or that Blackjack could potentially access them.  I do have to say though, it's a /really/ good thing Rampage decided not to try and use this one to kill herself.  It /might/ have worked, but if it didn't, she would have been trapped in that compacted mass of metal, and getting out wouldn't have been pleasant or easy...

The escape from the megaspell was well done, very tense and properly frightening.  I'm sure Blackjack can survive being hit by the Raptor, but I really hope Boo will be alright...

happy Hearth's Warming...

Really now? You list nazi experiments, the Holocaust, assassinations, etc. and then put this on there with that stuff? Yeah, this is SO horrible.
...It's my impression that adding that last one was a joke.
