Time Turner and the Ghost Horses, Part 2

Time Turner and the Ghost Horses Part 2 Chapter 3: Ponyville Tony took a few steps forward. This time Time Turner was better prepared, but he still didn't see what had actually happened. He concluded that West must be that much better with his own abilities to have noticed anything before. They were on the old Royal Road looking towards a distant Canterlot. Tony turned south. "I can see what you meant by 'old fashioned', TT. So what does this library of your look like?" "It's a tree." "By a tree? Which one?" "No, it's a tree. Hollow tree. Biggest one in town." "That one?" Tony was pointing. "That would be it." "Crazy." Time Turne

Time Turner and the Ghost Horses, Part 1

Time Turner and the Ghost Horses Part 1 Prologue: Night Terrors Sounds of heavy hoof-falls, as if the whole of Equestria were groaning under their weight. They fell like mallets on stone and rose with something like a rush of wind. On and on they came through the darkness, echoing through the empty mists. Time Turner was trapped between the Everfree Forest and the cliff where fallen Fallen Galloping Bridge might have once let him flee to Rambling Rock Ridge. His chest was heaving as if he'd been running forever, legs aching, heart pounding, panic gripping. He pressed himself against the edge as close as he dare: a rear hoof knocking a sm

The Buffalo of Equestria

The Buffalo of Equestria

The American Bison (more commonly: Buffalo) tends to live in different herds segregated by sex. This is distinct from wild horse behavior -- for example: Przewalski's Horse, a truly wild breed and not merely feral like Mustangs, maintain distinct families of one stallion and commonly up to three mares -- and so I felt it should be reflected in how I dealt with them in Time Turner and the Talented Pony (and subsequently, as the opportunity arises). So like American Bison, the Buffalo of Equestria are shown living in separate herds nominally segregated with bulls living in the camp and cows (and most all calfs) living in pueblo-like villages s

Time Turner and the Talented Pony Chapter 1: Time Turner "Cock-A-Doodle-Do!!!" a familiar voice from the next room was yelling out her window. "Pinkie Pie...." Time Turner pulled his pillow over his head to block the morning out. A short while later somepony knocked on his door: "Everypony up for breakfast, oh- Twitchy tail!" some other pony cried out, "Why would somepony put a pie up there?" "I don't know, Pinkie, why WOULD somepony put a pie over my door?" a Canterlot accent tinged with an icy edge demanded before a door slammed. "Because one was left over?" Pinkie Pie pondered in innocence. Pies had their dark side too, Time Turner

Do We the People really establish our government or is the government 'self-establishing'? Let me explain the basis for the question. The 10th Amendment is an interesting article because of more than just the fact that it advances the idea of delegated powers. Certainly it reserves to the several States any powers not delegated in the Constitution to the federal - excepting those few expressly forbidden to the States in the federal Constitution.

The Cleveland of Beers

Once again a thread on a forum I frequent digs into Bud Lite, this time on account of some advertising. Now, I don't drink the stuff but apparently a LOT of people do. Yet for all that, on the various forums I go to no one ever defends the beer. Do you remember the beer summit? Obama, a professor and a cop get together over a few? The Cop had, IIRC, a Blue Moon. The professor a Red Stripe. Both good choices. And the President a ... Bud Lite. Now, normally if someone posted negatively about a personal preference supporters of the President would be all over them for petty partisanship ... but not even one whisper from the left at Hannity.
EDIT: aaahhh ... appears to have been something with my iPad. No problem after all. Thanks for the Fave! I would like to thank whoever faved my story Time Turner and the Ghost Horses. For some reason the DA isn't letting me see who.

Okay my old comments were way too long and I’m just going to shorten them. I hid all of them since it can’t be deleted.

Shorter version: The transformers may treat Wheelie like an adult, but not his parents. The bots that Wheelie was around was where soldiers who never been kids or been around children, but that shouldn’t apply to all Cybertronians. It’s unknown how civilians would’ve treated Wheelie. If like his parents, then a child.

In the G1 / G2 cartoon we never see Wheelie's parents.

I'm not saying they didn't exist but at some point they were separated from him, and for the purposes of any fan fiction I might have considered writing this would have happened on Quintessa when the Quintessons had them killed because they were studying how the young mech would respond to being alone.

Why?

Because I maintain that Wheelie was intentionally presented as being a messed up kid with what little the writers had to work with given his screen time in the movie, mainly for his rhyming. He had but a few moments in that violent environment to establish his character and after that aside from helping Daniel plan a birthday party on the TV cartoon he seems to have got very little additional development.

Hey, okay, first off let me say that I later described my take as a minimalist one, which is to say in the G1 cartoon, simply if only because the show writers were making stuff up as they went along with no real plan, the bots end up with things like not knowing their own history. So when I say they don't know why they had genders (and realize that they would have had these before the met us carbon-motor life forms) that doesn't mean I was saying they didn't recognize that they did or that they didn't appreciate it. Only they didn't know why their original builders made the choice beyond possibly femmes were for secretarial work or entertainment / dancing girls (we did see them as dancing girls in the G1 cartoon, on earth, post-movie in one episode ... so ... yeah, that was a thing).

In the G1 cartoon (there are multiple incarnations that contradict each other and so really don't mean much for the specifics of the rest ... in the extreme I wouldn't reference Kiss Players for ANY other adaptation of the franchise) until the movie we only saw Cybertronians proper using Vector Sigma or mad scientists to increase their numbers, and even in the movie and later Wheelie is never explained at all.

Again, what in that thread I'd refer to as plotki (we need something here) or toyki (we need to sell this toy) or both.

i also read the rest of that old thread. Fun stuff.

i completely forgot about my last post in it:

Meanwhile on Cybertron:

*Autobot_1X9*: So, let me get this straight, humans don't LIKE mindless drudgery?

*BugbotPrime7*: LOL! Apparently. LOL!

*Autobot_1X9*: WTB?! So what do they DO with their free time?

*NinjaGoddess1*:  (2 cents smiley) Spend time on forums wondering how we reproduce?

*BugbotPrime7*: LOL! Suuuuure they do.... LOL!

Read some of your post on there. One of them is about Wheelie being treated like an adult. That  inspire me to write my thoughts on Wheelie being treated like an adult. My first thought is him being at the legal adult age. Wheelie is a child, but maybe that meant in a phyiscal, emotional and menat sense. However maybe legally he's an adult. My other thought is that if Wheelie was living among Cybertronian civilians then he would be treat as a child. It seem that the autobots are well aware that Wheelie is a child ( he was calla child twice by Cybertronians), but don't seem to care. I don't know much about child soliders, but I don't think that they're treated any different from the adults. I'm choosing the first one. It makes the autobots less evil. 

I know most are born as adults, but I don't believe that to be the only reason or the reason. I mean even though they never been kids ( or most haven't ), and may not know to care for kids. They have been around humans long enough to know you don't drag kids to war. They should've sent Wheelie to another planet to be proper care for. Even in Transformers Animated Optimus Prime and the other autobots knew not to drag Sari in the battle. When they found out that Sari was part Cybertronian, they still won't bring her into a battle. Yes it's a different continuity, but they're born as adults too.
