Horn Writing by bobthedalek Horn Writing by bobthedalek
And thus, Twilight and Sunburst spent the best part of the hiatus attempting to translate Starlight's list! =P

---

And so, a whole season's worth of episode themed comics comes to an end. Has it been fun? Mostly, there have been some times when I felt like pulling my hair out, but yes, it has been fun.

Will I be doing it again next season? I'm not sure. As it stands I'll probably drop back to creating ones for specific episodes, but depending on my situation when season 8 comes around, I may be tempted to do another full season we'll see how it plays out.

What are my plans now we're in the magical land of the Season 7-8 hiatus? I'm not too sure honestly. I've got a few unused comic ideas from season seven, so you may get a 'scrapped week' sometime in the near future!

Twilight: Got it! 1 loaf of bread, 2 cartons of eggs, milk, some new books, kite building supplies? …Maybe this isn’t part of Starswirl’s journal after all.

Starlight: So, Twilight, are you done translating my shopping list?

Twilight: This is your shopping list?

Starlight: Mhm.

Twilight: And instead of telling me that you let me waste all this time trying to translate it, thinking it was part of Starswirl’s journal?

Starlight: Mhm.

Twilight: I hate you so much right now.

I'm pretty sure that when you translate it, you'll find it says "A cat person may be cute now, but in the long run it wouldn't work well."

Honestly, I love this comic.

I once spent a whole week trying to translate what I thought was a secret message of some sort, only to find out that it was my brother´s homework...

Wait, mild comes from cows. Cows live on farms. Farms are where flour is made. You can find flour and paper towels in the kitchen. A kitchen is a room in the house. So is the bathroom. In the bathroom, we have shampoo. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED

As Twilight reads, and the words are made clear!

I would go one but you know where this is leading...

3 days later...

Twilight: Starlight, Spike, you wouldn't believe what I had deciphered! This is an oracle, a revelation, something that speaks about the future!

Spike and Starlight: Huh?

Twilight: Look! It says here that a unicorn turned into Alicorn, and after that, she acquired a mysterious box and has to unlock the box with her friends!

Starlight: *whispered to Spike* Did I write that?

Twilight: And then, the box then gave this new alicorn a castle, and inside it there's a cutie map!

Spike: *whispered back to Starlight* That's weird.

Twilight: And the map sent the alicorn and her friends to meet the potential magic user and reformed her!

*Spike and Starlight stared at Twilight, speechless*

Twilight: I think that means you, Starlight. Oh, here's another one. It says here that this reformed unicorn will play a prank to this alicorn by writing a shopping list using horn writing.

Spike: *whispered to Starlight* She has found out. Run.

Twilight: *creates a magic barrier to imprison Starlight* Oh no you don't. It says here I have to punish you for playing pranks on me. Now how should I punish you...

Starlight: *Gulp*

Spike:"But how will we know what to get from the store?"

Starlight:"Don't worry I have a back up list."

Spike:"There nothing on here but different kinds of booze."

Starlight:"And that why I made the fake list to keep Twilight busy."

It's convenient that Starlight was the only one who understood horn writing. Just what kind of studies did she master before becoming the dreaded time-altering "equalizer"? xD

Depends on Twilight capability to decipher the list, I say the least might be in a few minutes or the longest might be several days. There are about 35% chances she might not complete the decipher, though, and a slight 2.5% she gone mad while decipher.

Thanks for keeping us entertained for a whole season! It was one heck of a season, too. If you want to cap it off, maybe make a final comic that just takes single panels from different strips from this season and mash them together into a hilarious out-of-context story?

Now we (half of us) prepare for "three months of winter coolness, and awesome holidays..." And after we wrap that up it should be about time to fire up the Season 8 hype train! (And this gallery is definitely where I come for train-related knowledge and shenanigans.)
