Also, the additional information on the potential harms of the data exploit mentioned at the end of the chapter was cool. X3
Oh, thanks. :)
But yeah, I can see why it wasn't suitable to actually be the explanation in the chapter.

Oh, sorry. Why didn't you put that in the end notes, then?

Because it's not in the chapter, so it doesn't matter.

Mmmk.
I'm just saying that "Snapped Strings" has nothing to do with anything being wireless... unless the command was to some console that then broadcast a variety of exploits to shut down all the cyberponies. Which wouldn't make much sense, in my opinion, given Lighthooves was capable of programming in commands and that would be way easier and more reliable. The rest of the section is just kinda vague, but further explanation isn't necessary since it's not in the chapter.

I gave some thought for the whole EoS thingy and what he may be looking for.
At first the intentions were unclear, we knew it collected souls, but why?
In this chapter, Golden said that the EoS collecting souls of mortals is a byproduct of his need to consume stars.
And after he consume stars he grows and begin to consume whole solar systems.

But mabey the EoS is not as evil as BJ and GB think?
For those of you that played Mass Effect 3, you know that the reapers killed everyone in order to preserve them, since once in every "cycle" the A.I will try to over throw the mortals, so the Reapers saw the need to preserve life through...making a reaper out of them, so that their consciousness will remain.

What if the EoS is kind of the same.
It does not know what happens to souls in the after life.
Perhaps he is a machine that was constructed in a far away place, in search of Immortality.
Yet he himself is afraid of that afterlife and wish to save "souls" from it.
Be it of stars, ponies or ants.
For BJ and GB its truly evil, necromancy, mass extinction, mind control.
But for the EoS, there is no right and good, there is only the correct action, and that is to save the souls from the afterlife which he is does not what it contains, and so is afraid of it.

I just read Simply Rarity...and happened to be listening to my usual mildly depressing music as I did so. I hadn't done any looking and didn't know what to expect and the feel train just bowled me over and now its 11 pm and I think I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep.. Shy

This isn't the topic for this, but I think I'll re-read Simply Rarity. I haven't read it since before I even knew Fallout Equestria existed and can't remember anything other than that I enjoyed it.

Aoshi has put something amazing together.  He and another group of artists have put together a soundtrack for Horizons to help me out with bills and to hopefully get me to more conventions.  You can look for it here!

You're probably gonna want to post that on your fimfic blog for max publicity, buuuut... I can't seem to listen to any of the tracks. I think it's because it "releases" tomorrow or something, so you might want to hold off on sending the link around till then. I'm gonna give a guess here and say that letting people listen to the music for free increases the number of sales you're going to get there by about a zillion percent.

Let's see... 44 songs?

*Charity voice* One cap per song, plus a six caps package fee... That'll be fifty caps.

Let's call that my birthday gift to myself.

Nothing wrong with an early release

I feel like we're doing a Darksiders thing, where you have to balance out the good with evil for a few hundred years or else you'll throw the whole universe out of whack...cue EoS doing the "good" thing and erasing Equus from existance so something new can come along

unless I'm interpreting it wrong

In my country you can always buy rechargeable credit card that you can just charge on the go for something like 500 bucks without a bank account
Maybe you have something similar?

My gosh, I started a running commentary on the story but it was too much. My heart is thundering and I just can't stop grinning. That story is amazing. Just lovely. Just imagining that filly who was dancing in the snow passing away in the cold as Rarity desperately tried to keep her warm, then later as the Apples drag her, weakened but struggling, away from that little bundled body...
I feel so unbelievably happy right now I can hardly describe it. Light-headed.
I love this story, Somber. I really do. It's not perfect, the beginning could use some work, but the rest is very strong.

Thanks.  A lot of people say Applejack and Rainbow are OOC, but I can see RD just saying critical things like that without really thinking about it.  And Applejack does draw back when she realizes her questions are upsetting Rarity.  But maybe that's just me...

I half-agree, based on my assessments of the two characters.

Applejack's lines would have sounded a bit better from Rainbow Dash. Applejack is a bit too sensible to see Rarity working such long hours and act like it isn't hard work. She'd joke about Rarity being rich, but it would be far from sounding mean or jealous. Rarity was already late to the party due to a big order while Applejack might have finished work for the day a while ago. Plus, farming at least has an "off" season. Applejack would never want to do what Rarity does.
Rainbow Dash makes light of everything that isn't important to her. She'd assume Rarity probably usually just casts a spell and poof, fancy stuff. That's how Rainbow's work goes, after all. Ten seconds is an afternoon's worth of work.
She just wouldn't grasp how fashion, dresses, etc. could possibly be hard, and wouldn't be paying enough attention to see how Rarity struggles.

Plus, the hypocrisy of a journal being cheap compared to an self-autographed picture was classic Rainbow Dash. I completely agreed with your interpretation of her.

Somepony has to stroke Rainbow's Ego, and more often then not, she does it herself

Part of why I hate her sometimes, yet she's still one of my top five favorite ponies, behind Twilight, Applejack, Luna and my wife
