Busted! by Nimaru Busted! by Nimaru
So you want to see what happened after Hawthorne beat 3 colts bloody in defense of his sister who was being attacked for defending her brother in the first place!? Here you go!

In case it wasn't clear, Hawthorne is reading Winter Willow's heart and Honeycrisp is noticing the subtle body language and vocal clues that Crabapple is giving off.

EDIT: I forgot to explain... Winter Willow and Crabapple are very proud that they are standing up for each other and that they took care of the bullies, but of course it wouldn't be responsible to just let their actions go without consequence. But of course Hawthorne and Honeycrisp can figure out their true feelings anyway.

I like how you showed their powers (with the words "pride" behind the words "worry" and "anger" and it also coming from Winter Willow's heart). And their habilities are cool! I just love that family!

Interesting concepts. I can't help to notice Honeycrisp's talent could be what we call today synergology. It's something I'm presently trying to learn and I could say it's very effective if you practice enough. You can really go beyond the words they say, as the subtle movements of the body is much harder (if not impossible) to truly control than the words we speak. Vocal clues is another matter, though.

For Hawthorne, the way it's described, I can't find any real difference of habilities between him and Winter Willow. It's only tamed a little?

Not tamed. The abilities of the elements bearers generally grows from generation to generation. I would say by the time he's Willow's age, he'll be more skilled than she.

So the only questions left are do the parents know the kids know? And if so, do the kids know the parents know the kids know? Which prompts, do the parents know the kids know the parents know the know? That leads to - (Mauled by passing mathematician.)

Unfortunately yes... This very quickly devolved into a failure of discipline. I was going to add another panel about it, but figured it would be too complex to describe. I was going to have Winter Willow and Crabapple realize what was happening and then cut the act and just talk straight to them.

Aw, that's beautiful. I gotta say, your comics are among my top two or three favourite. And since it doesn't attempt to do anything with the current mane cast, it's actually better than most of the others I like. Just wanted to let you know how much I love your work.

For a moment, I was wondering why they'd be angry that they'd stand up for each other, then I read your edit and I understood.

I will say though, I'd expect Willow's reaction upon finding out about the fight to be to smother them with hugs out of worry rather than scowling at them like that.

A question for you dear Nimaru if I may:
The infusion of the elements of harmony into the bearers boosted certain aspects of said bearers but the elemental infusions are passed down to their children. When the elements are transferred do the former bearers lose the boosts they gained from the infusion?
For instance did Luau suddenly require more that three hours sleep a night after her element was transferred to her (as yet un-displayed) child? Did Crabapple lose his cosmic connection?
And if these boosts were lost, was it instantaneous or slowly over time?

A river that cuts through a valley leaves marks in it's wake even if the course of the river changes later. I believe that every living relative retains a connection to the element, though it's lessened as it passes on. The primary bearer holds the full element, though the element can change bearers if needed. Let's face it, one or more element bearers may have died before passing it on in those 1000 years.

I must say that I have always admired the way in which, in each drawing or comic you make, you leave trails and hidden subtleties for those with the keen eye to discern...

not that I am one with the keenest of eyes but still I enjoy it. well done *le bows*

Hah. Reminds me of when I had to deal with some bullies almost a lifetime ago in grade school. I got mixed advice.

Mom: "Tell the teacher or just ignore them. They aren't worth it."

Dad: "Punch that a-hole in the face."

Awww we didn't want to know what happens after that right guys?...guys?....God dang it.

I was hoping their parents would never know about this. But unfortunately i was wrong.

Winter Willow and Crabapple doesn't deserve to be upset at thier kids. Hawthrone only beaten up those colts not just because they bullied him but also because they were beating up his sister for defending him. Those 3 mean Colts deserved it and hopefully they'll never him again. Hawthrone was only doing this in defense for himself and his sister, Their parents should've been proud at them for standing up for themseleves. Not Disapointed in Honeycrisp for getting herself in certain danger. And Hawthrone for beating up 3 colts that was beating up his sister and has bullied him in the past. And if theier parents are gonna punish them for this then i'll lose my respect for them.

Did you miss the fact that behind Crabapple's words were pride and while WinterWillow spoke of disappointment, Hawthorne could hear her heart feeling pride as well?

The point is that they are acting angry, but the kids can tell that they're really not that upset and they're actually kind of proud of them. Parents generally don't encourage physical violence and have to "play the part" even if inside they secretly are happy their kids taught those bullies a lesson.

This actually makes me realize something, if the spirit of the elements was passed down through the generations, how did the element of Loyalty get passed down since Rook already had a daughter? Did he have another child or did it just magically pass on when he died or did she get it at the exact same time he did?

The transfer is based on cutiemarks. The act of earning a cutie mark causes the connection and transfer (being a magical event).

A little confused. The "Pride" that is being emoted in word form, is that from Crabapple or Willow? And are they actually proud that Hawthorne stood up for his sister and not showing it? :confused: This one's a little hard to read. But I love it! :D Stand up to the bullies!!!!!
