Maybe the area that Cloudsdale supplies with rainwater is not the whole of Equestria? We know for a fact that there are places where the weather controls itself (e.g. the Everfree forest), so maybe the ponies only apply weather control to a tiny part of Equestria, or there are many other Cloudsdale-like weather factories where they produce rain.

Idea: Equestria is the only place that uses weather control. Equestria takes other nations' water (From shared oceans, rivers, etc.), and keeps it. This would result in massive storage facilities in Equestria, and plenty of water. It would also have the added benefit of causing endless droughts and famines in other countries.

That's what they want equestrians to believe. Kim Jong Il style bs?

It's more likely than you think.

The Summer Sun celebration showed that the Alicorns actually do have power over night and day.

That's why we're using average rainfall, real life has areas that are dryer as well. We could also use the average rainfall for the whole Earth. In any event, I suspect that Equestria's area will turn out to be tiny, since 1708 m^3 of water is only roughly two millionths of a km^3 and I seem to remember from some lecture I had that Sweden gets roughly 15-20 km^3 of rain every year.

Unless we use the average rainfall for the Atacama desert or something, which is not very reasonable at all.

The average rainfall for Earth would probably be better for our purposes than the average rainfall for Canada, which is what I was getting at.

Also: Why do you think the griffons aren't eating ponies left and right? That was actually the basis of TSR before I abandoned it: Celestia (and Luna) was/were the only thing(s) that kept Equestria in a rather unnatural state of peace and stability. If you have a living goddess for a ruler, nobody is going to fuck with you, not even nature (except possibly a few residents of Gensokyo). Take that away...

I was contemplating sending it to EqD, but I wanted some input from someone else first.

I think the most shoddy assumption is the Cloudsdale altitude one, it could vary ±1000 meters, at least, which means a lot for the final result. So, what does everyone say? Does it deserve to be spread to the internet at large?
Silfurdreki, that's absolutely brilliant.
I wonder if there are some shots where you can see Cloudsdale and the ground. From the height of the houses and towers, you could probably guess how high it is.

And then from the average building height of Cloudsdale, you can tell how far away it is

Was I the only one to have a huge WTF face (and hear the voice of Ron Perlman in my brain) when they started watching a cheesy 60's-style presentation? Which suddenly BURSTS INTO FLAMES no less?

Hrm, not really.

If it gave me any reaction, it was a "harumph, more mundane technology."



PS: We're well beyond this point, but sometimes I get a dose of perspective and see that early 20 something men are getting extremely excited about an upcoming royal wedding with a pony princess.

Seriously, though:

Royal: I'd have a slight issue with this section in that monarchy has been pretty much proven to be a mediocre-at-best system of sociopolitical organization in most cases. In this context, not so much.

Pony: All that is right with the world.

Wedding: Connotations of the "sale" of children, though that is rather grey moral ground, both because of conflicting beliefs and because of the role of arranged marriages (esp. among nobility, etc.) in the political process.


So yeah, nothing particularly objectionable, and it also fits with the other topic at hand.

Now I know what they all do
I have to find my place
Work with all my heart
Tough task ahead I face
How will I do without my magic
Help the Earth Pony way
I want to belong so I must
Do my best today.

Oddly enough, though I adore everything that involves Pinkie, the one song I find myself humming most often is the Art of the Dress.

I'd be willing to try doing dramatic readings of them, if I can figure out how to work my webcam mic and figure out how to not make it sound like shit. Razz
