I remember is well; what part are you trying to get at?

My takeaway from that vision was, first, information about the Souleater, and second the implication that the ultimate goal here is to destroy it or remove it from the planet.

If Horizons is a heavy-lift rocket intended to move large amounts of material to the moon, it could be used to throw the Eater (which is presumably under the Hoof) off the planet and make it continue its trip to the void, but I find that unlikely because I seem to recall that the Eater is very large, like a mountain or something.

In any case, it seems odd to introduce Moonstone (actual moon material, or the body of the second star?), the one thing that can destroy soulmetal, if it's not going to be used at the climax of the story. And moreover, it seems moonstone can destroy much more than its weight in soulmetal, so a moonstone warhead would theoretically be capable of thrusting a knife into the heart of the Eater and blow it into dust. (Which is, recall, the normal end to the life of a star, and the dust engenders new life.)

@Kipper:
Spoiler:
For my P-21 story, while it wasn't originally intended to be arousing at all, I guess that kind of is the sub-context of anything with clop in it xP And well, as said about Daisy: I tried to show the "bad" parts of his visit there.
And *squee*. *Cough* Anyone that have read about any of my clopfics know I like squirting, like, A LOT xD

And that's true. I've also heard of the "potato women", personally don't understand those either. That little I can communicate xP I'm just don't make much sound at all, which is why I snort as the "generic porn" due to having retarded amounts of it. But yeah, anyhow, I make enough whatever to tell what I like or not xP

As for my pride and whatnot, can only say: Thanks ^^ (a bit too woozy to think of something better to say)

And *gigglesnort* It's kinda funny, we both are the "crazy" ones of our gender in this thread, and both are on the lower side of the ~"65-35 %" ratio of submissive and dominant xP
On a side note, it still amuses me with people that are to stupid to realize that anything can be done sub or dom. I've heard the argument "penetration is dominant, thus the male is always dominant when doing x" (and heard a even worse from another person, but instead using that reasoning to why males couldn't be raped.), and other said oral couldn't be given dominantly. I really wonder what some people lack to be able to think constructively and properly.

@Icy: (Sniper) From what I recall, she was just up on the roof on the building next to it, again could be totally off. But she recently sabotaged the shield of the building, from what I remember, so it'd indicate she got down from a roof x meters high, ran out of a panicked town that within an hour (max 5-10 min imo), got hit by balefire strong enough to mostly level the city and at least a kilometre around it. If I recall how the town looked like. Basically in FoE, Pinkie's body, or corpse, depending how she decided to spend her final time, knew she couldn't get away from the blast as the bombs fell, knew she couldn't escape in any way, so she huddled up in the corner and did whatever she now did with the Twilight statuette. Point is, Psalm now supposedly popped in to interject with Pinkie's last time, suicide or whatever she now did (still found it odd that she stayed in her office and died. (likely cried as well) Going with the large window in it. But ah well.) and is supposedly somehow escaped from the scene without getting hit by the shockwave, heatwave or anything. As said, she could have been like 2-5 km from the place, in which she'd have about enough time to make it possibly. If I recall a regular "small" nuke, it has a wave for it was either 1 km, or 10 km, something like that. I'm no expert.

@Silent: Ooh, she was in Tenpony, that explains it a bit... or wait, where was the place Pinkie was in again? I know it has to be "conveniently placed in just such a location" so it'd be angled right, and I guess it can do that. But still, it means she went there, turned off the sheilds, ran all the way to tenpony, without anyone noticing, then again, doubt they check that often, but then again, it was the MoM building... ah, whatever.

@Kipper: (Drugs) Not sure what to say about that as I got no knowledge on them.

(PH meet up) I'd personally stay well away from Somber, just in case I'd get the urge to pull a Glory (or something worse) on her. (doubt I would, but I don't trust myself)
I'd personally not meet anyone new for most reasons for at least ~2 years sadly.

@Sindri: (and Derp partially, at the end) Still, I say that's quite some bitchfist sniper scope, and bullet to pass through 2 shields and reinforced glass at that range.
And again, canon reminder is useful :P (although, with what Silent said, I'm a bit surprised Psalm made it off scot free from the blast, seeing how it messed up the tower a bit, despite the shields.)

As for BM, what I recalled it being described in PH, he kinda just stood around, argued some with the others, then fell down. Again, I could likely be wrong or mix him with someone else, but that's how I recalled that flashback being described. And he was supposed to be in his power armour if I recall right. Going with how "it was our own bullet tha' killed mah brother" AJ mentioned. Again, I have worthless memory xD

@Night: I think it's rather good. Kinda lacks "simpler" emoticons, but that's cakes, it has quiet a few neat ones.
The PM system is good, but I dislike the "post count" as said, going with how it goes "earth pony>pegasus>unicorn", I just dislike when earth ponies are "looked down" upon :P


And again, why is DDO so fun? BAXESTAB! (although ran into a fucking annoying dungeon, around 15 enemies in a fortified town, and as soon as you kill the first, a timer ticks down, and as soon as the last one falls, they start to respawn, making it neigh impossible to get a break in that town.

I've considered before that Horizons is supposed to allow the Eater to rise, but there's really been no evidence that anyone is working for the EoS even this far in. I'm sure that sort of thing is going to factor in, somehow, but I don't know how or who.

I suppose you could accomplish it by running all of Hoofington's power through a giant Enervation ring, or something...

Much better than our last venue. Or the one before that. I like it a lot.

I am using stylebot to shift the usernames and pictures to the left, shrink the profile pics, and reduce the font size of the bolded title at the top of every post...

Also I've noticed that sometimes it removed a line break between the reply box and the actual post. Like, if you hit enter once it ends up on the same line, or if you put a one line gap between paragraphs it appears adjacent. Seems to happen about once after every quote box? Haven't nailed it down exactly yet, and it's such a minor quirk compared to what we've dealt with in the past that it might not be worth trying to fix. Or it might just be me. The thread reset every 30-something pages is also strange, but not really a problem.

Ok i will talk to the other admins about shrinking profile pics, and reducing the font size of the bolded title at the top of every post

Why do you think whatever Project Horizons is is a good thing? Remember, the vision is what would have happened if Sanguine had been given EC-1101, and he gave it to whoever was talking to him through the terminal seen in Deus's memory orb. If anything, Project Horizons probably uses and empowers the Souleater to some end.

Gargh, Blackjack had one of those super-memories of the assassin before she got cyberized, right? I can't remember or find where it was, and I know that it's not Silver Stripe's memories coming in through the cyber implants (stupid crazy overactive brain) but I can't conclusively strike that crazy theory out without that piece of proof. Which I can't find.

As a general rule, it's easiest on the eyes to read light text on a dark background if it's a glowing screen or light projector (dark text on a light background is better on physical paper or a screen that doesn't glow). But that wouldn't work with the whole "cloud" theme here. Likewise, you should inquire with the other parts of the forum before looking at any of these things seriously; if it's just us then you shouldn't change the whole site to our preferences.

Pinkie was at the MoM hub above the Hoofbeats club. However, if you recall Garnet's phone call, she said,
"Partypooper is activated. Your alpha target was Twilight Sparkle, but our sources say she’s in Maripony. So alpha is now Pinkie Pie."
The intent was for Psalm to sabotage the MoM shield, enter Tenpony as a maintenance worker, kill Twilight, then go to the roof and snipe Pinkie. Since Twi was out of pocket, she just skipped that and went straight to the sniper shot.

(although, with what Silent said, I'm a bit surprised Psalm made it off scot free from the blast, seeing how it messed up the tower a bit, despite the shields.)
Yeah, I was thinking of that myself, but I guess that's why she ran for her riot gear when Cloudsdayle exploded. Anyway, her scope could see through walls, so she could get down behind the roof edge and still see everything. I think it was just the radiant heat that scorched the front of the building, anyway, so as long as she was out of a direct line of sight she should be fine.

As for BM, what I recalled it being described in PH, he kinda just stood around, argued some with the others, then fell down. Again, I could likely be wrong or mix him with someone else, but that's how I recalled that flashback being described. And he was supposed to be in his power armour if I recall right. Going with how "it was our own bullet tha' killed mah brother" AJ mentioned. Again, I have worthless memory xD
If you have a bad memory, why not just look it up? Lyra
"Macintosh spotted something and gave a yell… and then there was a shot. He went down."
Mac was wearing ordinary body armor, not unlike Celestia's guards. Power armor was developed in response to his death.

Yes, it was during the night at the Collegium in Ch. 28. That is to say, the evening after retrieving Lacunae from her catatonia...

It's silly and not at all urgent, but I'd like to see a wider selection of emoticons, myself. In particular, I find a lack of a simple, friendly smile other than the little tiny Lyra one. (As in, a smile that indicates you're not being sarcastic.)
By the way, I don't see the Chrysalis one in there yet... if you added it...
