The Struggle of Despair by bobthedalek The Struggle of Despair by bobthedalek

"Draw a pony struggling/Draw a pony stretching"

You know that rule of simple etiquette where you're supposed to do what the house guest wants? Vinyl hates that rule! :P

Seems she didn't manage to get down any successful escape plans yesterday either! :D

The reason Vinyl doesn't use her magic is because she doesn't wanna hurt Octamum... that, ot Octamum somehow blocked her magic.

It's not ABDL (Had to do a quick search to see what exactly that stood for) It was originally just meant to be a one off joke, but people loved it so much I decided to play it out  bit longer. If it 'aint broke, don't fix it.

I'm rather torn with what would work, Would simply going through it with out the hesitation and just dealing with it proves that she is mature by not throwing a fit to stop it? Or would that merely just encourage Octamum to keep doing it?

Also, I know Vinyl causes trouble for Octavia a lot, but this starting to seem rather unfair. I can seen Octavia having some fun at Vinyl's expense but after awhile it just seems Vinyl is getting picked on more often that Octavia is. Maybe it would help if we had more picking on Octavia pics to balance things out a little more.

Don't get me wrong, I think this funny but I'm also starting to feel that this getting a little one sided. Ooh Perhaps maybe we could Pick on Octamum for change you know that way she doesn't come off as Over Powering?

I know how you feel. I myself am starting to realise how one sided it has become. It's a difficult struggle between choosing what I think will work, and what the viewers want, as quite a bit of the Octaparents personalities has been built up on viewer suggestions.

For example, for the past so many weeks I've had a comic featuring Octamum and Vinyl sat in 'waiting list'. It's slightly more serious than comedy, but it does explain most of the situation behind Octamum and how she acts, however it would mean practically no stuff like this in the future when it is posted.

Perhaps I might try and have a little fun with the other characters before that comes along, though you've convinced me that that comic should be posted sometime in the next week. Thinking about it more, it'd probably be a good move.

Well I hope I'm not ruin all the fun, I'm just thinking maybe somebody else should be on the beating end. Because it would else keep the joke fresh too instead of it going "oh look Octamum is treating Vinyl like a baby. oh ha  ha  ha can you tell this is my happy face: -_- "

...Wait! I know what Vinyl must do. It helped a mouse evade a cat countless times in the past, and it will surely help this colourful talking equine in the present; she must wear a fake moustache! After she evades the grip and sight of the cello players mother :|

Those are some good expressions of delight and terror.
