    Traditionally when you 'defeat' some opponents you get everything they had...

    Including their catgirls. :)


    Viz the New Gods query, I did wonder if they might have ways of taking 'backups', having spare bodies which have a tiny fraction of their power cached away,so they could switch to those if their primary one was vapourised, and the vapour carefully scattered... Seems like the sort of thing the cautious/seriously paranoid would like to do...

    Mammon said that he never fully recovered after his ordeal with Constantine.

    Though yeah if he was just as powerful as before he got stabbed the first time losing political power would make sense.

    The Kings in Heaven said something about making Zauriel into a mortal to see if they should eat the fruit?

    Did all the angels in Heaven eat the fruit already?

    You know, all these alt!Pauls have me wondering- what would a Paul in Star Wars do/be like?
    Be honest. Do you really think that would stop Paul? :V

    Probably useless because there's no way to charge his ring and Legends is not canon any longer.

    You know, one of the reason Paul would be good for Khoah is that if they ever get kids at least he wouldn’t force her to add Paul as a prefix to their name, seriously either the dad or Khoah herself suck at naming childrens.

    I'm curious what Lord Protector Paul's long term intentions for his settlement are. I mean, say the situation stabilises enough that starvation is no longer an immediate concern, the Thundercats finish Mumm-ra off and Paul doesn't have a lantern by then.

    Rebuild the capital?

    Expand?

    Try to improve relations with the various races the Cats screwed over?

    Throw Khoah a huge fancy wedding? (Sweetheart deserves it.)

    He clearly won't be accepting Lion-O's authority anytime soon. Which is fair considering kittyprince's 'tremendous' leadership skills.

    "Wilykit, Wilykat, say hello to your new brother and sister: Paulikit and Paulikat!"

    "...Fuck's sake, mama;"

    Now that poses an interesting question, would Paul be able to even say their names? How ironclad are the rules that revolve around his mental block on his own name? Because Paulikit and Paulikat are very clearly not the name Paul, but does including the word Paul prevent him from saying it anyway?

    The amecomi one was a discussion hypothetical that got an omake from someone, thus it doesn't really exist until Zoat writes more about it.

    I thought the Ame-Comi SI was a male Violet Lantern with the Zamoran idea of a uniform (booty shorts) wearing a trench coat to cover himself because he couldn't change the default settings on the Ring?

    Only male superhero in the Ame-Comi universe leading to uncomfortable harem shenanigans that that SI keeps trying to avoid.

    Legends is the only canon, the sequel trilogy is not canon.

    Conquer the known universe? become the god-emperor of catkind?

    The Deep Six lay eggs, whenever they die, one of those eggs hatches and they are alive again.

    Which is how the Deep Six are still the Deep Six considering Aquaman and his fishy friends keep killing them.

    Dr Bedlam turned into a being of pure energy and interacts with the world with a series of disposable android bodies.

    Canterlot
    Late Afternoon


    "…grow larger?"

    Luna appears to be taking her status as third shortest alicorn in her stride. Cadance appears to not be all that curious about Sunset's achievement, which… Strikes me as a little odd. While, yes, I'm going to credit her with the intelligence to have talked to Shining Armour about the life expectancy difference I'd have thought that she'd be all over this.

    Circe nods. "It's inevitable. As you-." She hesitates. "Has Sunset shown you her equations?"

    "Yes, though We do not yet fully grasp their meaning."

    "Essentially, becoming an alicorn changes the proportion of 'you' that is made of arcane energy rather than flesh. An alicorn as old as Celestia has almost certainly reached her full size, barring any further transformations." Circe frowns. "Do you know exactly how old she is? Sunset said that Celestia is over a thousand, but she wasn't able to find a precise figure."

    "I would think so. Celestia is Our sister. She is one thousand and forty nine."

    "One thousand-." I frown. "Really? I assumed-. But then you're only-."

    "Forty six, if one discounts the time during which Nightmare Moon was in possession of Our body." She rolls her eyes. "Did you assume that We were some ancient demi-goddess? There are ponies in Our guard who are Our senior."

    "So more of a middle-aged demi-goddess?" She gives me a mildly reproachful glare. "What? I'm not exactly in the first flush of youth myself, and-" I lower my head and voice slightly "-you're the one sort of Christmas Cake I'd-."

    She looks away, smiling, her ears twitching and her tail flicking my haunches.

    "Hie away, you incorrigible scoundrel."

    "Oh you love it."

    Cadance smiles at our exchange, then looks thoughtfully at Circe. "Does that mean that I'm going to grow as well?"

    "Almost certainly. I'm afraid that accelerating the process with an existing alicorn is rather more difficult than-."

    "Oh, no no no. I'm not jealous. I'm glad that Sunset was able to get what she wants."

    I smirk. "Because now you don't have to worry about her turning up in your room at night with a dissection kit."

    She looks away. "Well… Ah, how do you think her talk with Princess Celestia is going?"

    "Nothing's exploded yet and-" I glance out of a nearby window. "-the sun's still on course, so I suppose that it's going about as well as it could."

    "I know you don't like Celestia very much, but when Sunset was her student they really cared about each other-." My expression appears to give me away. "And maybe Celestia didn't communicate very well, and maybe Sunset was a lot angrier than was healthy, but that love doesn't just go away." She looks thoughtful. "Maybe I could remind them of that feeling-."

    I scowl. "Use-."

    [​IMG]

    'Use unnatural mental influence spells on any member of my retinue and I will treat it as an act of war.'

    I glance at Luna, who looks curious as to where I was going with that.

    No. No.

    Cadance stops to see what I wanted to say, and… I do want to make clear clear my opposition, but less vehemently.

    "I feel that it's important to let them work out their differences themselves, and I would very much appreciate it if you didn't ever interfere with their thoughts with magic."

    Cadance gapes for a moment.

    "… O-oh."

    Oh… Great. Managed to be rude anyway. Ugh. I look away. I suppose that I should check on them. It's not as if Sunset doesn't know how to nullify sound or kill someone quietly.

    "Excuse me."

    I turn and trot away. To be absolutely fair, I don't know precisely how severe her mental compulsions are, but… That's not really a question a person should have to consider. After what Chrysalis did to Shining Armour she should know better than that.

    Ugh.

    Speaking of the stallion, he's over there talking to Shadow Tempest. I'm not sure exactly how much the state of the Royal Guard is his fault, how much is Celestia and how much is the combined failure of the institution over the course of a thousand years, but-.

    "Hey." Rainbow Dash appears in the air directly in front of me. "What were you planning on using on me?"

    I stop walking, raising my eyebrows. "I beg your pardon?"

    "The thing. Like the clones and Spike and Rarity and the Diamond Dogs. What were you planning on springing on me?"

    "Didn’t really have anything, to be honest. Maybe something about the ennui involved in wanting to join the Wonderbolts when you're already a better flier and fighter than they are, but at this point you're more aware of your faults than I am."

    She flaps twice, then frowns.

    "Why would I need an emu to join the Wonderbolts? Emus can't fly."



    I.. don't trust myself to keep a straight face, so I walk past her in the direction of-. No, they're gone. Ah, Twilight Sparkle. I should ask her about mental influence spells and see how warranted my concerns are. I mean, I'm confident that Sunset can defend herself-.

    "Hey, Gravy!" / "Hey, Gravy!"

    I stop again, turning to see… Pinkie Pie and Party Popper.

    Wait, 'gravy'? Blood sauce? I mean, I know that she's a baker, but… I wouldn't have thought that ponies… No, she might mean that white sauce stuff that Americans think is gravy.

    "Pinkie Pie. Party Popper. What can I do for you?"

    "Okay, but which is which?" / "Okay, but which is which?"

    Creepy party twins alert.

    I point to Party Popper. "Popper." And then to Pinkie Pie. "Pie."

    No… Wait. I look closer.

    "No. You're not."

    The Pinkie clone grins even wider. "You actually can tell!"

    "Yes..? May I ask what you're doing in Canterlot?"

    "I'm gunna be the Canterlot Pinkie! Because it would be super-confusing if we all went to the same place, and I got sent here. Party Popper got Manehattan because of course she did-"

    "Uh-huh."

    "-and Original Pinkie got Ponyville and everypinkie else got somewhere else!"

    "It will be a party extravaganza, I'm-."

    "Sunset, that isn't what I meant."

    Hurried hoofsteps cause me and.. most of the room to turn in the direction of the door to Celestia's garden. Sunset comes through first, water leaking from her eyes. An alarmed-looking Celestia follows swiftly at her heels. Sunset stops for a moment, her eyes alighting on me for a moment before turning back to Celestia.

    "What else could you mean? What more could I learn when I've already achieved what your 'lessons' were supposed to teach me to do?"

    "I'm sorry you feel that way, but-."

    Sunset's face falls. "Yes. You are, aren't you?" She shakes her head. "I don't know what I-." She turns away from Celestia and trots over to me. "Grayven, can we.. go? Just… Call a boom tube?"

    I look from her to Celestia, who gives her head a small pleading shake. And then back to Sunset.

    "Certainly. Luna, I'll be back tomorrow. Mother Box."

    Boom!

    Okay, does Sunset still believe that Celestia's lessons were about becoming an Alicorn and not about becoming a happy, well adjusted member of society?

    He wants Thundera to become the dominant world power through economics and technology rather than military force. The birds proved that using a stone as a fuel rather than a weapon is much better for a civilisation, and they themselves are isolationist.
    No, because he wants to marry her soonish and they don't have the resources for a huge wedding.
    For the SI, Lion-O being foolish is far better than him being wise. If he were wise, it would be harder to reject him.
    No, that cats are different enough to humans that they can't breed together.

    He has a power ring? Even if it's fear based and therefore not really suited for that kind of thing, just giving up without putting any effort into finding a solution doesn't seem much like the Paul I've been reading about.

    Gotta put some kittens on those kitty titties.

    Paul has also said to Jade that he is indifferent to the prospect of having children.

    If he has any then he will love them and take care of them, but he isn't really interested in having them in the first place.

    If he marries Khoah then he will become Willytab's and Willikin's stepdad, so he will already have children with her.

    'but less vehemently' not 'less vehermently'

    Also the episode, Repetition, says that it will be episode 95, but this is episode 95, it should be 96.

    I don't think Yaul can easily fiddle with genetics to ensure a viable hybrid offspring. He doesn't have a database in the ring, no local geneticists or databases to consult, nor a lantern to dump power into a hard computing a viable match.

    That isnt getting into the possibility that he'll have a much harder time achieving it at a with a yellow ring. Remember that the Renegade had issues of a similar kind when he switched over to a yellow ring while he didnt have a orange lantern.

    Ooh, Celestia doesnt like Sunset's outlook/ attitude/ philosophy and is expecting her to go back to being her student? That's rough. Its been 15 years for her, you would think she'll have a easier time letting go.

    Saying "I'm sorry you feel that way" is basically the classic example of how not to apologize.

    Celestia is acting emotionally here.

    Remember she thought that she was dead for 15 years and now she finds out she is alive and it has only been a year for her.

    She probably doesn't consider her to be that emotionally mature, despite her figuring out a way to become an Alicorn.
    Intellectually she is a genius, emotionally not so much.
