    I know right!

    Nobody uses a cross as an insignia anymore in 40k. The closest is the inquisition, and they don't have pink skulls unless they've gone radical and been corrupted by slaanesh.

    It's quite offensive, frankly.

    So with Grayven in MLP and a Paul in the Fallout universe, are we getting an SI in Fallout Equestria?

    *dryly* it’s the inquisition- who isn’t radical/corrupted by the Imperium’s/Emperor’s Origional Standards? >.<

    .... I have a sudden, irrational conviction that Amberley Veil, Inquisitor for the Ordo Heraticus, is currently giving me a disapproving scowl through the 4th wall and 38+ millenia worth of time difference, for lumping her in with the Ordo Mallius...

    Correction, it is consistent, if he calls everyone buy their legal first name whether they want them to or not.

    But if someone was named Anthony wanted to be called Tony, and you still called him Anthony, that is less 'reasonable' and more 'being a prick' (or in Australian, a cunt).

    An equal opportunity asshole is still an asshole.

    Uh, dude, have you seen the Black Templar chapter mark? Looking it up, it appears that the Imperial Paladins Space Marine chapter also have the cross-and-skull as their chapter symbol, and they use a blue color scheme, as well. Odds are the Dreadnaught in that picture belonged to them, even if they're a fairly obscure Space Marine chapter.

    Pretty much every chapter uses the cross and skull symbol. It's the terminator cross and on almost every suit of modern terminator armour. Even if a marine isn't wearing the suit he still gets to wear the honours so most veterans will have it somewhere, and it's used as the first company's symbol because of that.

    That dreadnought's skull and cross is most likely just a hastily done rendition of a terminator honour. Like so:

    I'm basically living in a
    prog rock album cover


    The Castle of the Two Sisters looks to be in far better repair in my dream than it does in reality. It-.

    "Luna, is this the pre-banishment castle?"

    She pauses for a moment as she leads the way through the halls and takes a moment to look around. "It is."

    "I don't know what that looks like. How are you inserting your thoughts into my head space?"

    She tosses her mane, and starts walking again. "'Tis not an attack. 'Tis the nature of dreams to respond to the thoughts and memories of those who experience them. E'en now, thou couldst most likely change things if thou truly desir'd it."

    "Okay. I know that you and Celestia used to use the Elements…"

    "That is not why we are here." She shoves open the door to the throne room. "When We speak of the Elements, the first that comes to our mind is Kindness. 'Tis here that Sister showed Us the greatest Kindness after We were restored from the Nightmare."

    "Wasn't that in the ruined castle?"

    "Yes. But this is still how We remember Our home."

    "Isn't it supposed to be a kindness that you displayed?"

    "That… We hope not."

    She turns, spreads her legs a little to improve her stability, then closes her eyes. The castle around us… Rots away, a thousand years of neglect appearing as I watch. Another wavering in our environment and Luna appears as she was immediately after the Nightmare was banished; small, weak and scared. Translucent images of the Bearers shimmer into being on the peripheries of the diorama but the focus is the statuesque form of Princess Celestia, towering over the cringing Luna.

    Then the Celestia image lays down next to her, and nuzzles her.

    "After all that We did, she was still willing to accept Us back." Luna shakes her head, her eyes remaining locked on the image. "If this does not work, then this approach is fatally flawed."

    "Maybe you need something you did to demonstrate a virtue?"

    "We-."

    I can't read pony expressions well, but she looks decidedly unhappy. I walk over to her, standing alongside her and pressing my side-. Too tall. I crouch slightly and press my side into hers.

    "You wielded the Elements. Come on. You confronted me to protect your nation. Wasn't that a display of loyalty?"

    "Neigh. Pride, and frustration that We missed Sister's fight with Chrysalis. We sought confrontation to prove Our might. We were selfish. And frustrating though you are, We should not have attacked you without further investigation."

    "Don’t apologise. I enjoyed it. Now, come on: there must be something that sticks-."

    "Wriggling!" Her eyes widen and she sidesteps away from me. "You were-! … Standing proud!"

    "You're an attractive mare. Now focus. Virtues."

    "I-. No, I know that I did, but-."

    Oh no. "It's working on you, trying to make you forget, to cheapen your achievements. Come on, pick a memory at random if you must."

    She nods, and the eight dream ponies disappear to be replaced by an image of a royal guard. He looks around fearfully, spear held under his right wing. Luna walks towards him. "This is Stalwart Spear. He assailed Us when We appeared in the Ponyville town hall as Nightmare Moon. We struck him down, and he had nightmares for days." She lays her right forehoof on his left shoulder. "His was the first dream we visited after Our return, and We were able to bring him comfort."

    "See? Kind."

    She backs off, and the image of Stalwart Spear fades. "We caused his terrors. A pony whose very cutie mark identifies their strongest desire to fight in Equestria's defence was confronted by one who effortlessly overpowered him. And Our Sister's student did not even call upon him to aid her in her journey to our castle."

    "Yeah, but you made a point of trying to help him." I pause. "Did you know who the dreamer was before you went in?"

    "No, We did not. Though We should not have been surprised."

    "Yeah, you felt bad, but you knuckled down and did the job when you could have ducked out or hid away. You wanted him to feel better, and I want you to feel better about doing it." I bend my neck down and nudge her with my face, careful to make sure that I don’t accidentally spike her with my horn. "Okay?"

    She.. smiles faintly. "We accept what you say." Then she sighs. "But it appears that the Elements do not, elsewise-.

    Pink light flares in the air, and I breathe a sigh of relief. Good, good, this approach can-

    A pink gemstone appears as the light fades, and floats over to attach itself to my armour.

    -not work as intended. And now I have Kindness, apparently.

    "Thou hast shown me kindness, and been recognised for it. Mayhap thou can demonstrate each of the virtues for thyself, and achieve victory in that manner. Though we are still at a loss as to what We are supposed to do to aid in this endeavour."

    Well, if I'm getting the Elements…

    "What are you afraid of?"

    "Huhuhahahahahahahaha!"

    Nightmare Moon appears at the end of the room, throwing her head back as she gives her villain laugh an outing. A beaten Celestia lies at her hooves, struggling to move.

    "We fear becoming that once more. A callous, cruel and petty creature who cares only for her own aggrandisement."

    Nightmare Moon smiles.

    "A strong, confident creature who revels in her own majesty, not the bumbling, hesitant mess that you are. I was always better at being me than you were."

    "And We know that in Our heart of hearts that We believe that too."

    Yellow light flares around her feet, and a moment later Luna's barding gains a new decoration.

    "This is… Fear? You wore something similar on your ear piercing."

    "Yes, that represents the yellow light of fear. So now we know what-"

    I hear a stamp. An armoured boot striking a stone surface. And another. Something is slowly approaching.

    "-we're doing."

    She nods as Nightmare Moon fades into memory. Hm, to be relived in Luna's own nightmares. "What are the other emotions your spectrum contains?"

    "Hate and anger, avarice, will, hope, compassion, and love. And I've got loyalty, honesty, generosity, laughter and friendship to go. Okay, this is manageable."

    "Assuming that this works."

    The boots are getting closer. Luna's ears prick up.

    "We assume that We didst not imagine that?"

    "No, not intentionally. But I mostly just focused on shutting mental intruders down, not doing anything entertaining. I was expecting that we'd be facing the Tantaquation by now."

    Another trudging step and the creature comes into view.

    So I foresaw Grayven getting the Elements as a (small) possibility. But having Luna go through the Emotional Spectrum? That's a nice pairing that makes this much more enjoyable.

    Yeah, this whole situation is as trippy as fuck. Battling an abomination of your own making upon a battlefield made of your own dreaming mind alongside a winged Unicorn of night? Prog Rock fans would have that art framed on the wall.

    Can you blame her for thinking of happier times?

    Unfortunately, Grayven is better at Fear than Avarice.

    However, it's not easy to be the kind of person to embody all the elements at once...

    Like I said, she's thinking of happier times.

    Harmony tends to be forgiving, admittedly.

    I'm surprised there was no fear present. Imagine Luna's uncertainty at how her sister would react...

    Given the danger, any gamble is worth the risk.

    That sounds awkward as hell...

    Yeah, that's a popular characterisation in fan-fiction. I can see her feeling uncomfortably inferior to her sister...

    Oh, my. Grayven, you cad. Hmm... Would this qualify as a wet dream?:p

    Oh, dear, it's already starting to spread...

    I hope it was just a polite talk...

    Ouch, that must have stung.

    Huh. That must make for some embarrassing moments sometimes, not knowing what awaits you in someone's dreams...

    Wait for it!

    What.:confused:

    Oh, gods... It makes a perverse sense. Since the danger is locked within Grayven's mind, he's the only one who can really work to fix it...

    Kosh: What do you want?

    Of course. It's only natural she should fear that she could still harbour those feelings, that they might come bubbling back to the surface someday...

    Why else would she have created the Tantabus, after all?

    No way.:eek: Is she on the path to becoming a White Lantern, or is this just symbolic? Surely we'll see soon!

    That kind of approach says "I feel no need to chase you, for you cannot escape me no matter how far or fast you run." Pure slasher movie monster.

    Let the mutual vision quest begin!

    The Tantabus-Anti-life fusion is enjoying this, isn't it?

    Oh, this is going to be good...

    Well, this is going to be an interesting sequence of events. Luna and Grayven going on a shared vision quest through their respective memories for the macguffins to defeat the slow-moving monster? And no doubt those in the real world are panicking.

    Corrections:
    She tosses her mane...
    I can't read pony expressions...
    A pony whose very cutie...

    We've joked before about how Zoat has clearly enjoyed cumming here, but I think we're about to see some hardcore bestialit- interspecies erotica! The sort we should have seen on Vega.

    ...Maybe she was thinking of a time before Nightmare Moon, then?x3

    Effing Hardcore. Uh... Forgiving, when it likes them?

    Admittedly, I haven't seen more than maybe the first whole season and some of the second before I got bored of it, barring stuff like Twilight Vs Tirek... I'm surely missing a lot...

    Well, that's something of a weighty problem, isn't it?:p Picture a Cyldesdale wooing a Shetland...

    plus if they both went through the mirror they'd be the same species mostly. since grayven has basically turned himself into an apocalyptian after being a roided up human. seriously the blockbuster formula, who in their right mind would think that was valuable.

    Now picture it playing out for real. Because the mirror opens up into public.

    A tall naked female human with Elentári hair speared on alicorn cock in public. Wonder Woman rocks up to to hear the words "GrAyVeN!"

    I'm thinking Diana just turns around and goes home.

    Diana doesn't get paid enough to deal with that, and aphrodite would probably crow on if she tried to stop it anyway. soooo it's basically a lose lose situation.

    Well, if she gets in on it, on the other side of the mirror, it could be win win.
