(SPOILERS) wait.........she can get out of that pod thingy???? i thought that her body died and she was eternally stuck in that weather controlling machine. well sheeeeit that makes the ending a whole lot less sad.
Just finished reading FO:E and have been feeling extremely emotional ever since. But this picture gives me exactly what I wanted for Pip, a happy ending!! She may not be able to leave, but the thought of her friends being able to visit her fixes my broken heart And maybe Homage could make a new home there with Pip
This picture is wonderful! Thank you for cheering me up and making me love FO:E even more!!
This picture cured my post-FO:E depression, since I finished it for the first time last night. It was mainly spurred by the impression I was given that Littlepip would only be able to communicate with her friends and Homage through metaphysical means, and that she was permanently attached to the pod. I have an unapologetic ridiculous attachment to characters, and the ending hit home until I delve into making the ending less ambiguous.
Also, Homage's expression is perfect and adorable.
now, one little thing that popped up, dunno if you'd see it elsewhere, i saw a comment, it's kinda early to me, and my mind isn't working right. That spot has an inpenetrable forcefield, which the only bypass is dragonfire. It was stated before in the comments, the reason the others don't have their pipbucks is cause they didn't want to put the elements through the dragonfire for fear of damaging them. All well and good. So why does Calamity still have his? I don't recall Calamity taking an injury to his leg, so the metal on his leg is his pipbuck, correct?
Wait, What? LittlePip is the only one with a pipbuck. Velvet Remedy had one, but she didnt want it anymore. Also as for the means of getting in and out of that place: All they would need to do would be to create the right type of bypass spell. Im sure there are still ponies in the wasteland who are good at creating complex arcane-science spells. As for Littlepip in the pod: it was to my understanding that she COULD leave at anytime, however, she is the only pony who can operate the weather machine (After even a year of that, I dont really see why she would stay longer) Little pip MORE THAN LIKELY cannot escape that place on her own. Someone would have to do it from the outside. (unless the shield generators are located somewhere withing her tomb. )
if you read the ten years later post epilogue bit, you'll know they all do. The elements took the form of pipbucks this time around. And since both calamity and velvet are bearers, they do get pipbucks in the end. And if what you're thinking were true, why didn't the enclave consider and do that already? The truth is, the shield already had a bypass, allowing the princesses and RD in. Pip's also in an induced coma. Which also taking into consideration the importance of controlling the weather, I don't think can be just undone. I could see her here more than likely able to project on another monitor like Tia's doing, but otherwise is asleep.
Yeah, it left some considerable unfinished business. Cute pic though. I kinda felt like Littlepip's exile to the SPP hub seemed a little forced. It doesn't really make any sense that she would have to stay. That and her and Homage could just set up home there, since DJ-Pon3 mostly broadcasts through the SPP towers anyway.
