Controlling the Sun by DeusExEquus Controlling the Sun by DeusExEquus
I would imagine this is how the rings let you plunge an entire region into sweltering heat, seeing as the pony that literally controls the sun is generally not super evil.

Luna: Seriously Tia, ponies would give you a billion gold rings of varying sizes if you did so much as look in their general direction, and you're accepting bribes?

Hey she was paid to perform a service and she is doing so. If whoever is living in the basin wants cooler weather I'm sure Celestia can be bribe..I mean paid to take care of the issue. Its a free market afterall!

Hmm, maybe Celestia should be banished this time.

i would second this opinion, but imagine what would come of it. the mane 6 would then have to defeat an evil celestia. or perhaps the next bearers of the elements of harmony will have to do it, due to the fact that it would probably be 1,000 years from that point in time. either way, she will wreak havoc upon equestria, and, at the same time, discord would follow her due him probably making a pact with her to do as she says at all times, and make ponyville the chaos central of equestria, such as was his original plan.

Well, Discord is what I think they're calling "reformed" now. Yes, he has that special connection with Celestia, maybe Luna also. I think that maybe he would still be disappointed in her, considering he's now being good mostly because of Celestia. And, the Mane 6 would probably be deceased or something before Celestia finally snaps. And in between the time the Mane 6 pass away and the time that there are new bearers of the elements, maybe Luna would banish her? It's just a little prediction, no reason to get our tails in a twist. :)

I really don't get Ahuizotl. Is he supposed to be a gorrila-wolf?

He is an Ahuizotl, translating to spined-beast (I think. Its late and my lore is fuzzy). They are a creature from Aztec lore. They are said to hunt humans and specifically enjoy fingernails, hair and skin I think. They lurk by the waters edge and use their hands to drown victims.

So yeah, these things are kinda messed up. Love Mlp for the dark undertones they slide into the show. Like Griffons for instance.

I don't understand this comic.
Why has Ahuizotl concinved Celestia to do it, when he had all the rings together?
Reply
:iconzelda-lover306:
Zelda-Lover306 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2014
Because Celestia is the one that controls the sun. And she isn't evil enough to allow an area of Equestria to be plunged into unseasonable heat. On a normal day. So he's using the rings to bribe Celestia to do it.

Generally, its better not to think about it too hard... Ruins the joke.

I've learned not to think to hard about Celestia's role outside Equestria in the world at large, as it just causes headaches and leads to ridiculous conclusions.

If you start watching it, you'll never stop. Trust me. I started to like MrPoniator's fan made MLP videos even before I watched the show.

This vid - mrponiator.deviantart.com/art/… got me into MLP. I couldn't stop watching it and now I'm a huge fan of MLP. You should check the link I posted ;)

The vid is crazy, yes. But MLP is awesome :D

I've seen a few episodes, they were OK. Nothing really bad and better than what I expected from a show aimed at little girls, they just didn't strike me as anything speacile. However I may watch the episode where this unholy blue abomination is in, so which one was it?

His name is Ahuizotl, and he appears in season 2 episode 16 'Read it and weep', then again in season 4 episode 4 'Daring Dont'.

I think the temple was supposed to raise the temperature. The rings were for breaking through the shield spell keeping the temple at bay that Daring Do put up.

Heh, greedy princesses.

My headcanon states the power over the sun is actually wrested from Celestia's hooves, hence making her a more relatable character and less of a deity. But I do think this idea is funnier.

I just figured it was greenhouse gasses or something. Really, I find it weird that so few people seem to have thought of the possibility of altering temperature without taking direct control of the sun.

But I like how she wears those rings so impractically. All "I don't even need to be able to move my wings, I just need to sit here and give orders."

Celestia is "generally not super evil"? Really?! :iconepicfacehoofplz:

She is only the kindest, most benevolent ruler ever and you say she's GENERALLY NOT SUPER EVIL?!?!

Ahem. Anyway, I liked the joke in this comic even though I believe that if Ahuizotl had succeeded in his plan, Celestia would certainly have done something about it. Nobody messes with her sun!

I choose to believe that the Tetnochtitlan basin is an area like the Everfree Forest, where things happen regardless of pony involvement, and the rings influence that.
