RESPECT
As Gracenote is (loosely) based on Aretha Franklin, I felt she would want to offer tribute to her inspiration.

The outfit is (also loosely) based on two different things she wore on album covers.  Would have been three except I couldn't make a fur stole that looked good on a pony, so had to make do with lots of lace trim instead.

The Pone Wars 6.19: Foreshadowing
This page is best page.  I like it even better than 2.3.26 and 3.4.36.

One of my favorite parts of Rogue One (and there were a lot of them) was the Death Star eclipse over Jedha before the test-fire.  Obviously that didn't happen in my tribute, since I wrote it before Rogue One came out (and it was based on a Buster Keaton movie anyway, and only had some of the same characters in common), so I missed the opportunity to use that image myself, until now.

Since MLP's prognostication magic is largely limited to the special senses of party ponies, I don't normally have the opportunity for Luna to get all the forebodings that Yoda normally gets.  But the Smooze, as a non-linear chaos creature, provides an excellent opportunity for her to have a glimpse of its future... which, of course, she's going to grossly misinterpret, because that makes a better story :)

This page's imagery came to me while I was still early on in this issue (I hadn't even finished scripting yet), and so I dropped everything and went to draw it right away. The result is even better than I anticipated.  I did have to renumber it a couple of times to fit what eventually led up to it (originally it was page 18, but it took a little longer to get to this point).

I am writing this series assuming that people have read the original one, so if you're a bit lost about what exactly this page is foreshadowing I suggest you go back and read volume 1.

The Pone Wars 6.18: Things Fall Apart
The panel order here is a little bit tricky, but I tried it with arrows and it looked like crap.  Read them in a '2' shape.

Action sequences are hard. I don' like doin' em.

I had this sequence scripted out so that Luna would get covered in smears of flume when she catches Fettlock, and then realized when I was drawing it that the plant is spitting goo all over the place and some of it is almost certainly going to fall into the volcano anyway. So this is still a heroic rescue, without the 'accidentally making things worse' part 'cause they were already worse.

The Pone Wars 6.17: That Way Down
This page was meant to be a visual callback to the Nightmare Moon's firing chamber, except I didn't actually go back and look at the original page when I made it.  At the time I was trying to be cagey about the Smooze replacing the Death Star laser, so it's very small in comparison to this.

One of my favorite parts of this project is bringing a bunch of unrelated (or barely related) elements together. Even as recently as when I started plotting this issue, it wouldn't have occurred to me that I'd be mashing up the original MLP movie with The Force Unleashed, not to mention all the other things. And yet, here we are...

The Pone Wars 6.16: Memory Like a Draconequus
This page went through multiple rewrites, but unusually, it wasn't to make Discord's lines more Discordant, but to try to actually make the punchline punchy. I'm finding this to be a bit of a problem on Discord pages - if he's funny enough I start to feel like I don't need to finish with a punchline.

It's already well-established that much of this series is a sequel to 'Make New Friends But Keep Discord', but here we go into a little more detail about how we got from point A to point B.
