Like so many others, I assumed that the Canterlot Wedding encore would feature a season 3 announcement. I'd been working on this piece for a while and thought, Oh crud, this is a pretty timely comic and it wonít be as funny if I donít post it before the new season starts. So it became a rush job.

Well, the Hub got me good on this one. But in some ways I think the lack of an announcement adds to the punch-line. There's little point in complaining, and plenty of life to live before the new season starts.

Plus, don't interrupt Twilight's reading time, or she'll prank you something awful.

And now for some credits:

All character colors (except Pumpkin Cake) are based on guides by :iconkefkafloyd:.
Rainbow Dashís name font is courtesy of and their Breezed Caps font.
Likewise, Pinkie Piesí dialog is the Porcupine Pickle font. Yes, Porcupine Pickle.
:iconredheadstock:ís Light Beam Brushes added extra punch to the Sonic Rainboom.
"Elder" Twilight's colors are based on a commissioned piece by :iconpalestorm:.
And if you look at the second-to-last panel, you may see :iconqtmarx:ís Library Vector as a background.

Thanks to these folks for helping make this comic possible. Hope everyone enjoys!

UPDATE: Thank you Equestria Daily! I not only get to be featured with two more excellent comics, but I also get to enjoy a wellspring of supportive comments from the fan base! I appreciate all the encouragement and the constructive criticism.

I neglected to thank :iconerockertorres:, who's background vector inspired my design of the planet.

Thanks to all for the favorites and comments. I hope future comics will continue to impress!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you. 7 done

Actually, these things are fake, I was just  doing what the thing told me to do. If I was going to write chain mail though, I would make it happy, not scary.
