Between the last comic and now, things have progressed to a point where (tangentially related, copyright-free) merch might actually be happening! Exciting. Things are still coming together, though, and the further we get the more I want to slow down and make sure we've got all the fine details right.

Looks like things are getting good

Woo! Progress is good news, but it's definitely worth taking your time. Don't wanna find out you accidentally signed away your soul or something.

lol. Don't think that can actually happen.

The way the number 11 looks on Dash in the 7th panel reminded me of The Cutie Map. :3

Man, that town would hold the most boring races.

That's not true. Every racer would be neck-and-neck, nose-to-nose the entire race. The suspense would be heart-pounding!

Maybe you guys can help me here.
I've been getting a story together, but I'm stuck at one part.
One of the charthers(I just can't spell that word right) is going to be an elemental sealer. I've already got darkness and earth figured out.
For darkness, chain like shadows grabs the person and seals it into the darkness itself.
For earth, the hand of Giga grabs then seals itself around them into a boulder.
But I still need to come up with an idea for the rest.
Maybe you guys can come up with something.

For water, maybe atmospheric moisture (or standing water if available) begins coating the target and forcing itself into their lungs/throat and freezes into an ice crystal before they actually die for crude cryogenics.

For wind, you could actually scatter their essence into the wind in such a way that it can't be reassembled without a command word and your concentration.

Fire, I love the classic burning wheel that bound Ixion. Maybe light the target on fire first, then have that fire rearrange itself into the burning wheel.

And let's not forget the obvious answers for element shaping ideas, Avatar and Korra.

I might use the water idea as an ice seal.
Love that fire idea, but wouldn't it noticeable?
Wind is good.

For wood, vines grow out of the ground and hold the target fast.

For metal, the target is chained and shackled and placed in an iron coffin.

For water, the target is submerged beneath enough water that the pressure prevents movement.

For air, the target is flung into the sky and put into orbit.

For fire, the target has pieces burn away and regenerate constantly.

For light, the target is trapped in a brilliant geometric form.

Wood I can get that from nearby trees and seal it in one.
I like the water idea, use it in a deep lake or ocean.
The light is a good one.
Fire, no. Doesn't stop their movement.
Air, do you know how force it takes to escape earth's gravity?
Metal do I just carry one around?
Those things are heavy.

Look at panal one, then at panal two.
Whoops.
ANW 30th Jun 2015, 6:21 AM edit delete reply
I meant 3 and 4
Digo 30th Jun 2015, 6:38 AM edit delete reply
The Whoops have been doubled!

(I see what you're pointing out though. AJ's missing number)

If the two players got Stamina points based on their athletics bonuses (12?) then Twilight must have also gotten some of those points! That means that after RD uses all but 1 of hers to make it back to the front, something will happen/the two will sabotage each other leaving Twilight and all the NPCs with all of their points remaining! I predict Twilight will blow past both of them with all of her Stamina in the final quarter!

Comment take 2. *Internet why you hate me so?*

Well, it seems pretty obvious AJ and Rainbow are going to completely bomb the race, and it's going to be Twilight who is going to have to win to keep the group from a) losing a ticket, or b) the group getting a bad reputaion for taking the ticket unfairly.

... Why to they have to make a feel-good sport that happens annually so hard. *Face Salm* Even some criminals have a beter sense of cooperation and teamwork then them.

Is Twilight going to derail the mission again? How are they going to get a ticket now?

*Spoiler Free*

"Party Poopers"

This episode was a great charecter building episode for Pinkie Pie

3 things I liked

1) The princess of love appears in 3 straight episodes

2) Callbacks to previous episodes

3) Yak's

My only complaint is the way the yaks talk is a little annoying (This nothing like yakyakastan, we angry, we smash)
