[6/10/2014 12:16:50 AM] Moxypony: ooh, what if, when the stasis chamber is opened, Cherry Bloom first sees Moxy and momentarily mistakes him for Moxi, thinking some of her old friends are still alive.
It'd be an early chance for them to see a crack in her facade
[6/10/2014 10:14:48 AM] Cherry Bloom: I like that. Gives a bit of significance to the moxi/moxy thing.
[6/10/2014 10:57:24 PM] Cherry Bloom: If the megaspells have an underlying framework that's physical ain nature and if they're supposed to be an expy for nuclear weapons, the way that nuclear weapons work is they use dynomite as an explosion to thrust the atomic payload together in order to cause the nuclear detonation.
[6/10/2014 10:57:49 PM] Moxypony: but the way Balefire works is necromantic fire
[6/10/2014 10:58:07 PM] Cherry Bloom: That means that the physical apparatus would still have to have physical parts to move in order for them to be able to be dormant
[6/10/2014 10:58:18 PM] Moxypony: …OH
[6/10/2014 10:58:21 PM] Moxypony: OH!
[6/10/2014 10:58:28 PM] Cherry Bloom: Especially since Zebra themselves do not have unicorn magic to trigger them
[6/10/2014 10:58:40 PM] Moxypony: okay, I see, you don't mean physically containing the explosion
[6/10/2014 10:59:33 PM] Cherry Bloom: just trying his damndest to keep the physical part from converting into the magical part of the process.
[6/10/2014 11:00:45 PM] Moxypony: that's definitely more reasonable than what I was imagining, but I suppose that would be indicative of a planted bomb rather than a dropped one, or missile
[6/10/2014 11:00:53 PM] Moxypony: do we want to go with a plant?
[6/10/2014 11:00:57 PM] Moxypony: heh heh heh
[6/10/2014 11:01:19 PM] Cherry Bloom: Planted at a place that would do the most damage to both the tree and the palace.
[6/10/2014 11:01:44 PM] Moxypony: that can work
[6/11/2014 6:01:59 PM] Moxypony: considering her illusion magic would be the only thing preventing the town from being discovered by Red Eye's army, it might be better to hold off on them finding Cherry Bloom until after the events surrounding the Cathedral go down
[6/11/2014 6:09:43 PM] Cherry Bloom: Makes perfect sense. also for that reason it might be best to wait to start out until after that point in the mane story. so that they don't run into any one. and if there's enough commotion from the event that might be something that draws the group out initially.
[6/11/2014 6:10:26 PM] Moxypony: my plan was for them to start their journey before then, they're caught outside during the conflict, and return to find Luneria after
[6/11/2014 6:23:04 PM] Moxypony: I imagine they left after Littlepip, so they spent less time in the wasteland prior to the whole war thing
[6/11/2014 6:23:57 PM] Cherry Bloom: is the eff/cathedral part mentioned?
[6/11/2014 6:24:21 PM] Cherry Bloom: if you can find that you have a narrowed field to look through fin reference to timing of events.
[6/11/2014 6:25:49 PM] Moxypony: I think the Cathedral is destroyed in Chapter 43
[6/11/2014 6:27:28 PM] Moxypony: okay, this is gonna get complicated unless we want them involved in the fight with the Enclave...
