This is my first attempt at a more "serious" MLP comic, as well as a chance to experiment with panel layouts and lighting. There's a lot of things in this comic I'd like to change, but I've already spent more than enough time on it as it is.

I came up with this comic after thinking over the implications of having shapeshifting creatures like the Changelings in the show. These creatures have the ability to perfectly mimic the appearance of any pony, right on down to the voice and clothes. Knowledge that such creatures exist could cause rampant panic and paranoia, with everypony starts pointing hooves at anypony who acts just a little different. It'd be like the Equestrian version of the Red Scare. I'd like to see something like that explored in Season 3- assuming it ever comes out.

Spoiler alert: It doesn't.

Every time a season ends on something big that gives the fans so many possibilities for ideas that makes it seem like the show could go anywhere, it doesn't really change anything and is far less interesting than what the fans predicted and speculated.

Although Changelings are perfect at their job, they have a fatal flaw: usually they have no idea what their target acts like or should do at given times, which is quick way to induce suspicion. Or when Thorax failed to perfectly copy Spike by tripping on the snow. The latest, for example, where they had suddenly replaced the main 6 and many others, immediately made Starlight very suspicious when "Pinkie Pie" acted totally weird although they certainly had improved their acting, like when "Aj" said "PP" always acts weirdly. Not only that, the whole shit was so suspicious it didn't only smell suspicious, but had it written all over it. Will be interesting seeing how they improve their acting from now on.

Yeah, but this is a nightmare. In this scenario, Applejack has some underlying paranoia that someone she knows, loves, and trusts could have been easily replaced by a Changeling (as Cadance was) and she wouldn't figure it out until it was too late, as they did with Chrysalis.

Sorta the slogan "Trust is a weakness" from Uplink: Hacker Elite fits.
