Author: It's-a me, Newbiespud!

I reeeeeally wanted to do one more IDW mini-arc, and I wanted to buy The Grand Galloping Gala a bit more time for… reasons. So here's a 7-page arc based on the Rarity issue of the early Micro Series.

Yellow dialogue in [brackets] is the DM speaking out of character, for anyone who's confused. Had to consolidate some of the existing balloons.

Scrapped dialogue:
DM: Fluttershy is looking up mythical animals… I asked Pinkie Pie to figure out a way to liven up the party, but I haven't heard from her since. I'm a little scared.

I accept the scrapped dialogue as canon. xD

Ditto. I rather like the comment about not hearing from Pinkie. Uh oh!

This may have been discussed before, but I don't see how this scheme can possibly work. Celestia knows Rarity's class and affiliation, Dainty Dove is a dead ringer for Rarity, and it's impossible for Celestia to be unaware if her nephew becomes betrothed. Why WOULDN'T Celestia not then out Rarity as a Thief? Is there any indication that she thinks Rarity has gone on the straight and narrow?

Maybe celestia thinks this situation is hilarious and wants to see how it plays out? I could see it.

You mean, just like how FiM's Celestia ran the Gala? Trollestia becomes FiD canon too?

They know they can't fool Celestia but Rulers often know a lot of dirty secrets they don't act on out of courtesy or convience and would like to keep Rarity's Identity one of those.

Hell yeah. Having an asset with character levels is a damn handy thing for any ruler, especially if they're mid to high level. Celestia is savvy enough to keep Rarity's secret and clever enough to use that leverage sparingly as needed.

Which makes me wonder..... What are the odds some of the wedding episode shots make it into the next story?

Wait a minute. Rainbow Dash just got a glimpse of at least one...compromised stallion, and now she's licking her lips. Is this an affirmation that she swings that way?

The original line to go with that face is about the afterparty, apple cider, and "a plate of fancy carrot sticks with my name on them."

So I guess we'll never know.

At the very least, we can say that Pinkie was perving.

Rainbow Dash has been checking out the stallions' carrot sticks and is feeling hungry.

Yep, okay. :-)

I'm not sure how 'compromised' the stallion would be considering the normal fashion most wear. i.e. a birthday suit. :3

I find it amusing that the theater is the Kazumi theater, named after Rarity's singing VA.

I didn't have a hard time understanding once I read the note about the speech bubbles, but now I'm just dieing to know how Content Aware Fill would handle them.
