Thanks! I've been working with a lot of tough angles recently so I'm glad if they're working out.

Yeah that's probably Rose Petal, now that I noticed the horned shadow in the last panel. Maybe it's not a ritual but it has something demonic involved, so do I get partial credit for my previous guess?

It looks like it's time for Willow to face her inner demons. A few questions though. 

1) Are all of the heart healers presented here covered in the brief bios you did for them a couple years ago? I just can't find it in your gallery.

2) Why have Willow's detection abilities waned over time? If I recall correctly, didn't they became empowered after the elemental infusion as noted in her bio in Twilight's Studies?

Two new girls and two new boys. One of the healers is missing (Tender Embrace) because he's too sensitive for this work. There are others, but they gathered the strongest only for this.

Her element hasn't waned, but her abilities have due to repressed pain. Just like in real life, holding things in can be damaging.

I also don't see rose in the crowd.
She is a hearth healer too isn't she?

She was never an official heart healer, but she WAS a constant presence in the hall :)

Yes. That was no accident, but still not OFFICIALLY a healer. She was too busy with her kids and then with duties of the Prime Minister's mare.

what are Rose's duties anyway?
I mean everypony else of the elements has known duties except for her.

Place your bets Ladies and Gentlemen! Who is this mysterious voice!? Currently taking bets on:
Celestia
Winter Willow's Mother
Winter Willow's Old Babysitter or Aunt
None of The Above

House takes minor percentage of all bets to cover overhead and unofficially backs Winter Willow's Mother.

House just noticed the shadow connected to the voice and immediately regrets its decision.

Rose has been added to the options pool.

Remember Winter Willow's abilities? I already said they were weaker, but not dead. Heartsong was using a spell to keep them all hidden and that's why they were holding hooves.

First, I thought it was Celestia, but then I noticed the shadow at the lower left of the last panel. A female shaped head with small horn.
Pretty much sure it's Rose Petal now.

Silly Willow, Rose Petal can make you do anything!
I've never heard Rose Petal speak that loud before.
I was not expecting this, especially out of Rose Petal.
In case, you hadn't guessed, i'm pretty sure it's Rose Petal in that doorway.

Could be, though at the same time it could also be Celestia. *shrugs* All we (the readers) have at the moment is just a shadow outline of a pony with a Horn. Don't know if its a Unicorn or a Alicorn.

Just have to wait until later.

true, but when it turns out that it really is rose petal, i'll probably do a little jig and say i told so.  if it is celestia, i give you permission to do the same.
