Even though I lost interest in the fandom, I’ve been wanting to make myself a new ponysona that represents most of my interests. Glittersweet is a colorful pony who loves anything glittery, holographic, colorful, sweets and of course a good hayburger. ❤❤❤
She also enjoys painting her hooves with glittery & colorful hoof polish.
In other words, she’s a colorful, glittery mess but I love her and is pretty much me as a sparkle horse~ ✧・ﾟ*✧・ﾟ
A loud belch was heard from a distant cafe. The sign flipped
from “open” to “closed” with an added note that read “SOLD OUT.” The double
doors opened as a large blue blob with freckles came out. Or, it would seem
like a blob from a distance. In reality, it was the pegasus known as Pepper
Dust, and judging by her bloated belly, she had gone on a food raid. Again.
“Ugh, so full.” She groaned and hiccupped. “I couldn’t eat
another bite. Actually, wait a minute.” She pressed a hoof to her gut and felt
around. “Ballpark estimate but…I think I could actually fit TEN more bites in
there.” She shrugged and kept waddling, her legs trying to hold up the weight
of her body. Sweat dripped down from her forehead. “Shouldn’t…have skipped…leg
day…” she said through gritted teeth. Even though she felt slightly sick, she
had no regret. It was all-you-can-eat pancake day at ITROT. However, what the
owner failed to realize was just how much a single pony COULD possibly eat.
Unfortunately for the manager and other customers, they had to close early.
FORTUNATELY for Pepper, she had the biggest and best brunch of her life.
How exactly does unicorn magic function? Is it held in a reserviour in your body that depletes and then refills itself, or is it another form of physical stamina, etc.?
Just like any action, using magic requires energy, which comes from your body’s energy stores. Even just the thinking and concentrating involved of course requires energy.
However, it’s not just a matter of energy in equaling energy out. The work required to move the moon would take far more energy than your body could generate (equivalent to septillions of sandwiches worth).
Part of the energy, beyond that required by your brain to think and concentrate, does come from your body, but you also tap into the ambient magic around you, what the ancient unicorns called Textus Arcanum, the Hidden Fabric. In a sense your own power acts as a catalyst, though not only as a catalyst.
The more power you have, the more of the ambient magic you can tap into, so your spell casting ability is limited by your own energy level, and it’s important to get plenty of food and rest. Habitual magic users do end up eating a lot, particularly alicorns who often use far more demanding spells.
Some think it’s funny that Celestia eats so much cake, or that I eat so many hayburgers, and while it might seem excessive to the average pony, really it is necessary. Not cake and hayburgers specifically of course, but energy rich food.
"There's that hayburger joint, and I think there's also a good place that serves some good soups. Last time some buck went there, he got the whole 'No soup for you' treatment. Then again, he'd been acting aloof."
“So you want Trixie to eat at a restaurant that doesn’t serve bucks? How exactly is that a recommendation? Is Ponyville against deer somehow?”
