Star Mares 3.3.14: Lost in Translation
Even when speaking the same language (or with the aid of magical universal translators), meanings can get muddled.  I often find that people don't understand me when I say perfectly straightforward things.

On that note, I'm not entirely happy with the way this came out - it isn't at all obvious that Cookiecutter's "I'll smite you if--" is a response to Avahi's fear in the previous panel that if they don't prostrate themselves, she'll smite them.  It would be perfectly clear if it were spoken, but the written medium doesn't really allow for conveying that information.  (The rest of the lemurs' lines are superfluous - anything important gets repeated by the ponies.)

For those trying to transliterate, sometimes the lemurs' text columns are read right-to-left and sometimes left-to-right: Inkscape changed the way it handled vertical text between versions 0.91 and 0.92, and I upgraded partway through this issue (and then downgraded, and then upgraded again).  It's not a major issue for me because I don't actually intend for you to read them, but I know some of you are gluttons for punishment and are going to do it anyway.

It may seem a bit presumptive of Cookiecutter to be calling herself a princess when she's only two-thirds of the way there, but Luke called himself a Jedi Knight with about as much legitimacy (possibly even less, given that he didn't magically acquire extra limbs as part of his training).  And it just occurred to me that while I was trying to imply that it was actually Discord giving her wings rather than a normal alicorn apotheosis, it could just as easily have been him preventing her from getting the whole package (which actually seems far more in character, if you think about it).

Star Mares 3.3.12-13: Crystal Bawl
I was in high school when The Phantom Menace came out, and the only reliable internet anyone had was the school's.  So we would download movie trailers in the math lab and watch them over and over and over again.  I now have the line "I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee" permanently etched into my brain as a result (also, the Hamster Dance).

I've seen some really nice grown-up Flurry Heart art, but I elected not to be that adventurous with my rendition, especially after I realized that her existing hair curls look like the Leia cinnabuns.  Her regalia is just a color-swapped version of her mother's, and I tried to make her cutie mark as much like Cadance's as possible while still having an ice motif (who knows if she's ever going to get one on the show - I might have to come back and special-edition these pages if she does).  I wish I could have given her some of Padme's lines instead of Sio Bibble's, though.

In case anyone is confused, Pinkie Pie is the only one of the six who is still 'little pony' sized, because she's Pinkie Pie - of course she never grew up.

Star Mares 3.3.11: Over Six Million Forms
This is the only time that the lemurs' dialogue is actually translated - I needed it to be understandable for the punchline this time, but I don't like the look of it, and subtitles aren't practical when dealing with more than one speaker (or more than one line, for that matter).

In the films, the ewoks are awfully cavalier in their obeisances to their alleged deity (either that or C-3PO is actually very bad at translating their language, which is also a possibility given that what he says sounds nothing like what they say), so I interpreted the lemurs wanting one as essentially a fashion accessory more than a religious figure.

Despite Cookiecutter's offhoof dismissal of them, universal translator powers are actually awfully potent, as any reader of the early run of New Mutants will agree.

EDIT: For the record, the names of these four little critters are (from left to right) Mirza, Kayan, Avahi, and Bangka - adapted from the names of major lemur or loris family groups.

Star Mares 3.3.9: Space Ships
Sometimes I wish I'd gone with my original plans to make Cheese Wedge a more prominent character (since Wedge is basically the Bon-Bon of Star Wars, complete with having different voice actors in different episodes), but it's already hard enough splitting the screen time as it is.

Was just pondering the idea of Red Shift or Blue Shift ascending to alicorn-dom Twilight style but it ends with a thwack...

"She didn't say much, and was unconscious most of the time, but perhaps that's what made her an excellent monarch..."
