Special thanks to labba94 for idea of Red Screen of Death (it's a legit thing!)

Here it is! Definitely my favorite page of the whole script. Mostly because Lionel23 was kind enough to let me go crazy with it as the original script was rather 'elastic'. I only had to put his OC's in the page (the creature on the poster, a kirin, plus Cloudia  and Angel Song in a panel below), and he suggested some ideas for petitioners. I used most of them, and added something from me (like angry Scootaloo, or DJ Octavia. I made one thing due to a false memory - I was sure Dr. Whooves was supposed to present a scientific theory... it turned out the script had "some charts", but it didn't really matter in the end. As for Derpy... Well, you can blame me. She was supposed to merely "crash into the room and break some things", but the problem was - the throne room is empty. So I decided she could break a window aaaand... Luna. It was also a good excuse to play with screentones a la manga. The Japanese sound effects are legit... theoretically - I found them in a dictionary of manga SFX. You can also blame me for Luna breaking the 4th wall (I've heard some people hate that) and being annoyed at the petitioners. Such a commentary from her seemed suitable for the scene. So, if you dislike something, blame me, not lionel.
The Time honeycomb theory is a reference to Time cube theory. And the polychora and honeycombs you can see on the blackboard are actually legit. I've actually spent... hours on Wikipedia reading about 4-dimensional geometry, hyperbolic space and honeycombs just to make up something cool (at least in my opinion).
