I was going to write something here, perhaps about the daunting challenge of writing a justification for how gosh-darn smug Fluttershy is through this entire second part... but the seasonal bug is upon me at time of uploading and I can't think of anything. Blarg.

Hmm. Trying to crack magical compulsions with logic rarely ends well in my experience, but that experience comes mostly from dealing with NPCs. The "Hmm" from the usual DM does seem encouraging, or at least intriguing.

Seems as good a story prompt as any. Who else has tried to talk people out of mind control?

Sadly I haven't gotten to do that in any games, although I have had that happen in some fanfics I've written in my head. Most of the time it doesn't really work.

Edit: Actually, I have seen that happen in other people's games that I spectate. Although the context is hard enough that I don't really think I can share it here. Guess I could link to the official recaps if anyone's interested enough.

I would say something like "Now that's not fair."
But I would be hypocritical.
Something that true chaos never is, is a hypocrite.

Poke at the facade? Is she trying to make Pinkie an actual action girl, instead of someone pretending to be one?

That seems like the opposite of fighting the curse. Clearly I missed something.

The curse is to prevent her from using her actual Powers and whatnot against Discord.

She literally says she wants Pinkie to use her actual abilities. Which are comedically flavored.
