That scepter joke was one of the worst attempts at making a forced meme since the hula-hoop from Portal....still cool comic.

wait was the scepter made to become a meme?

The scepter originated from a scene in the season four opener where discord conjures up the scepter as well as a cape and crown on twilight in attempt to make a comment about her acting like she was above everyone else since she was now a princess. My point was the fact it had a goofy face and how pronounced it was in that scene was an instance of trying to make a meme out of a force joke. And initially it didn't work at least not until "popular" artists started to feature it everywhere and it has such become more of an in-joke then a meme. I believe the phenomenon is called 'twilicane'.

well the joke was funny to me and it is something discord would do and it is not that they keep spamming it i think it was just something that people remembered.

Whatever, each to their own, I guess.

  Y'know, what I read into this series, and what I really like about it, is the implication that after all the grimdark of the Fallout Equestria stories, after all the serious tragedy and horror of war and recovery, Equestria is returning to a state of harmony.  And I mean "harmony" in a very "meta" way... as the air clears the various narratives are gravitating towards the natural humor and light-hearted nature of the setting.  As the land finally heals jokes are once again funny, the colors are cheerful, and the ponies are adorable.  It's like the channel is slowly changing from "dramatic sci-fi" to... well, "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."  And seeing all the plot threads from "Fallout: Equestria's" bleak setting evolve and resolve in such a fashion is wonderfully heartwarming.

  And hilarious too, of course.  It goes without saying that the laughs are still a little more sardonic than anything we'd see in the show, but that's icing on the cake so far as I'm concerned.

Pretty interesting analysis, given that it matches the original games pretty well: pre-war America was a pretty crapsack place, with rampant paranoia, commie fear, and cultural stagnation, whereas post-apocalypse America is eventually thriving and advancing despite all the damage. Depending on how moral the protagonist is, you can usually make the wasteland a better place.

Sadly, most of the Fallout: Equestria fanfics ignore this and play up the terror and crushing despair of the wasteland, especially Project Horizons.

Hm.  Sounds about right... I'm sure they're great stories, but grimdark never really appealed to my personal tastes.

You say that like you're going to refuse to help the mare with the heavily-armed robot utterly devoted to her.

Something tells me that Sweetie Bot isn't taking 'no' for an answer... or, indeed, anything except: "Yes, Minister Rarity! Whatever you say Minister Rarity!"

I just have to ask, where is the scientist who ejaculated in to the sonic emitter. I'd laugh my ass of if he would be here.

When in doubt, C4. (In this case, a bazooka) :XD:

Twilicane just never seems to get old with me. Also, LOVE Rarity Brain Pod's pouty face in the final panel and Flutters, who is always adorable, is especially so here.
