    Default Friendship is Dragons 3: Canterlot Wedding

    This is a screencap RPG game based on MLP. It's not 100% strictly in-order, and at least one major scene was done with all-new drawings by a reasonable-well-known pony artist.

    We are currently at the Canterlot Wedding. One of the main characters, the girl who plays Twilight, has a brother getting married, and both of the two are RPG'ers. We've seen in an earlier strip that the brother has been playing the same pony homebrew with a different GM, and now we get to meet Fiance and Fiancee'. (err, what are the names for the male and female versions?)

    http://friendshipisdragons.com/comics/1399
    Here we see our heroes (heroines?) getting ready to do the same divide and conquer party prep we've seen at the Gala, but this time they are the official prep ponies, not trouble making outsiders. What could go wrong?

    I really wonder where some of these screencaps come from.

    Today we see a wonderful twist. As much as Cadence is showing those "evil eyes" from the wedding episode, here we see that Cadence and Shining have explicitly made a one-shot for the main 6 players to figure out, even if that means suspecting them.

    So we have a pretty much out-of-character confirmation that this Cadence is playing an evil character for the players to figure out.

    Fiance is male.

    Fiancee is female.

    Like a lot of French words, an e on the end makes the word feminine. Un and une. Blond and blonde. Louis and Louise.

    So I did get it right.

    Is Fiancee spelled with an accented final e, or a plain final e?

    Fiancé(e).
    The 'feminine' final e is never accented.

    Wait, you pronounce the feminine E with an accent, but spell it without?

    The accent is on the first e, not on the one that makes the word feminine.

    And I'm now remembering why I didn't continue with French past middle school.

    Anyway, on topic, you think AJ's player is suddenly kicking herself?

    I think I'm liking Cadence better than much of the main cast so far.

    And she continues to show the difference between a loving person, and a jerk of a character.

    Maybe the twist is just that Cadence is a cruel pony, not a changeling?

    That kind of wrecks the second half, what with Twilight bonding with her future sister-in-law over a little flank-busting.

    A 19 isn't enough to pass? Now I'm remembering DCF and the guard monster hitting Roy's AC on a 2.

    "Watching my actual brother and his actual fiance' pretend to have a pre-marital squabble".

    That's a really good summary of the twist happening here.

    We've ruled out changelings.
    Anyone have any guesses?

    After the whole thing with Prince Blueblood I'm not ruling anything out.

    Oh dear ... we see what "Cadence" is doing now.

    Attempting to disagree results in a headache.
    If Cadence then succeeds in an opposed roll, she both dominates the target and eliminates the headache.

    The first does lead to the second.

    I wonder if we're going to see the introduction of a new organization to replace the Guild as an opponent.

    Yeah, a tactical (social) retreat is probably in order here. I wonder how they're going to set up the Twilight goes it alone part of the third act, since the in-strip Six are on her side.

    Apparently I'm an idiot. I didn't expect Spud to use team loyalty to explain why they were in the bridal party. And even a barbarian will wear a froufrou outfit it it leads to flank busting.

    Can I just say that this is my second favorite group of gamers (second only to the Darths and Droids crew), in at least part because they can keep IC and OOC well separate.

    The distinction between MAC/SA in character and out of character continues apace. I no longer have any idea where this is going, but I'm definitely enjoying the trip.

    Hey, Twilight actually entered on cue! Now to see how Spud is going to twist the end of episode 1 and set up episode 2...

    For some reason, today's strip reminded me of Roy's line from the start of the bar brawl in BRITF: "Well, I guess one of us was bound to make this spiral out of control. It might as well be me this time."

    Was that your reaction too, Keybounce?

    I'm not sure what BRITF is, but I'm thinking more along the lines of "If this is a mind controller, there's no telling who else is controlled. If I don't convince people, you will at least be able to tell who else is controlled."

    Yeah, that went about as well as I expected. I'm not sure if the crux of this arc is the actual episodes or TS's player getting some issues worked out.

    And I have an answer. It would be nice if I could relate to my own siblings half as well as these pony players do.

    Which OOTS arc was Blood runs in the Family? Was that dear Dad, the undead cleric that was friends with Durkon, until ... not friends, and "Do you remember the present that my wife gave me on my last birthday"?

    I love these images. I did not realize Twilight had that smile, nor the reactions that Cadence had.

    I have to re-watch this episode.
