Webcomic description

A screencap comic of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Equestria is a custom campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons, and the mane six are Player Characters. How will a party of six roleplayers fare in a world where the usual hack-'n'-slash high fantasy has been replaced by pastel-colored ponies?

My wedding involved a bunch of engineers and scientists figuring out how to support the flower arch when it turned out to be too top-heavy... We wound up grabbing fishing line out of someone's vehicle and looping it around the ceiling supports, but only on the flowers. This meant we had to keep the arch fixed or it wouldn't look like it had flowers on it anymore. Interesting day.

Oh and the 'bachelor party' was a game of Terraforming Mars.
Given Candence's reaction in the last panel I'm going to make a guess:

The twist is that there is no Candence at all in this version of the story, Shining is knowingly marrying the Changeling Queen, and the happy couple is going to drive Twilight's player insane by insisting she's just imagining things to maintain "Cadence"'s cover. Shining's player will go too far in his smugness about outsmarting Twilight's player, and Cadence will show herself to be a minmaxing problem solver just as god as Twilight's player, allowing her character to be one step ahead from Twilight's investigations on all time.

The shot of Celestia and Chrysalis fighting will be used as Twilight is imagining what the Changeling's plan is.

And the DM will again have to learn to stop insisting on pursuing/allowing meta mind games that make the players miserable rather than just talking like grown up individuals.

I've got "The universe likes you, but also makes a show out of acting like it derives great joy from your misfortune." (tsundere GM)
Based on the shenanigans that have happened in my ponyfinder party (in both forms of the party, I was functionally a healer; alchemist in one with the share "spells" discovery, and a cleric of Not-Quite-Twilight [Princess Luminence]), I went into every week's session hoping for a medium, mundane day, instead of stuff like:
* Steelheart (robo-pony) Oracle whose curse let them peek at the future, and they delivered a few of those in a doomsayer style.
* Persian (winged cat) Rogue who basically felt morals and ethics were "those weird pony things" (they were CN, I was a NG unicorn cleric that party, and we had a unicorn paladin of the same goddess in the party; we were the only ponies in that party for the most part)
* Earth Pony gunslinger who was basically going for a walking mortar launcher/cannon build (they crit a target, and basically pulped the our-level pony from the damage dice)
... so yeah, I sometimes pined for normal games.
