Pacifism by Pony-Berserker Pacifism by Pony-Berserker
Korean translation: ponyworld.egloos.com/400860
Russian translation: tabun.everypony.ru/blog/transl…

Cartoon characters can be really merciless when it comes to dealing with defeated villains and antagonists.

This comic is an extended remake (the original version had 3 panels only and a different title) of my very first digital comic on DA, but it was done in terrible quality, and I simply had to make the new one. The older version might probably be still found on derpibooru
This comic of course refers to events from "Too Many Pinkie Pies" and "The Crystal Empire" episodes (in case someone is confused by it.

Why are Pinkie and Twilight in the Daily Spa? For no reason - just had to put them somewhere. And a day in spa after the Mirror Pool Incident seemed to be a good idea.

Also, I'd like to thank ~VoidChicken who sometimes proofreads scripts for my comics and helps me with titles for them.

Everything drawn by me in Inkscape and Ponyscape (a derivative of Inkscape)
MLP Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle belong to Hasbro.
"Art" by me.

Definitely a well done comic. I can see very little that needs to be improved on. The steam rising from the water and the ripples around Twilight and Pinkie Pie shows that you pay attention to detail, which never goes astray. As I look at this comic, i'd say the only thing that should be improved upon is the movement of the characters themselves.

If you look at the frames, the position of the two ponies barely change. The 3rd frame looked good in that sense because Twilight lifted her leg up out of the water as she spoke. The last 4 frames of the comic don't look as good, because Pinkie Pie keeps her leg raised the whole time.

So yeah, more movement of the characters to make it look more like a scene being drawn would be good. Other than that, it is an excellent effort and an entertaining comic!

To be fair the scrolls that Twilight has would be made of paper and there are ways replace any leather needs without killing but no one ever said that Sombra was killed I mean the guy was a shadow more or less and all he did was get blown up and as something that was at least partly shadow.. He could survive the blast and his horn could be seen glowing with a spell.. Maybe he made himself less solid at the last second and while it is possible he is dead.. Did the writers say he was dead? NOPE!! 

But other than that I agree because in one episode Fluttershy can be seen feeding fish to animals and worms to birds suggesting that innocent of not taking animal life they are not...

Truth be told, I don't think anypony took out Sombra; it was the power of the Crystal Heart.

Not entirely.  Sombra's explosion was just a side-effect of putting the heart where it belonged.  A gun usually has a very limited set of potential uses unless you're creative.

I don't think they have leather saddles and parchment isn't necessarily hide. Also I don't consider sombra as killing a pony but destroying the shadowy remnants of what once was a pony but who lost himself long before. That said no where ever said ponies can never kill anyway, we don't know that. Though it's a good guess that they normally don't.

According to wikipedia - Parchment is a material made from processed animal skin and used—mainly in the past—for writing on.

As for killing and not killing, you can justify anything with whatever argument you think of, no matter how illogical it is - broadly speaking, it's called sophism.

I thought today the terms is used more generally, and could be used for a pulpy sort of plant substance too. Looking on dictionary.com we do have
1. the skin of sheep, goats, etc., prepared for use as a material on which to write.
2. a manuscript or document on such material.
3. a stiff, off-white paper resembling this material.
Still the last is clearly a derivative term. I guess I just wouldn't expect horses to be using the original sort.
Also on the wiki page you mentioned it has a section for additional uses of the term. It mentions that it's used to refer to graduation scrolls even though that's generally not classic parchment and has a section about "Plant-based parchment" though it seems that term normally actually refers to baking parchment. However it also mentions vegetable parchment which is made of pulp and wood fibers. That looks like that may be for cooking too though. For some reason I thought there was a pulpy writing paper that still gets called parchment but I guess I was wrong there. Technically it can be plant based as we've seen, but not normally for writting, and can be used for non skins.. but pretty much just in a modern sense I guess... >_<

That issue is a retrospective story read from his diary. And the final page clearly showed Twi believes he 'blew him to bits'. And he is incorporeal... so he is pretty much dead.
Also, just look at the date of this comic here.
Nice try, though.

*Doctor Whooves shows up*

Doctor Whooves: Let me take it from here, Twilight...

*Doctor Whooves turns to adress Pinkie Pie*

Doctor Whooves: What Twilight is TRYING to say is that, much like myself, you Ponies use violence as a last resort. True, some creatures and evildoers are beyond reasoning, and sometimes you have to end a life to save billions of others, but we always try to reason with the villains and befriend them, and only AFTER that fails we fall back on violence. I've done things I'm not proud of. I killed several Daleks. I destroyed the Nestene Consciousness. I killed the Krillitanes. I killed Lady Cassandra TWICE. But I'm not proud of it. Every life I take creates a wound in my soul. And the Ponies are the same way. My daughter...Jenny...she has been adopted by this goddess angel, Belldandy. Belldandy will resort to violence, but only when the lives of her loved ones are at stake. Most other times, she resorts to peace and reason. And she's just as powerful, just as magical, as any of you Ponies. We could all learn from her.

then explain to ME why her magic was purplyblackgreenish when casting KING SOMBRAS SPELL,for god sake some spells make your horn glow a different colour jeez,oh and about celestia,her magic changed into many colours yes,but she's an ALICORN for god sake an ALICORN!!!!besides maybe they even made many animation errors! but when she was fighting chrysalis on the royal wedding then that may explain a bit of what you said but lunas magic isn't black you know,oh and I'm right about shining his eyes are blue and his magic is blue,besides cutiemarks have many different colours,and it would be hard to only choose 1 so any explanation to what i just typed in?:D (Big Grin)

It's not like this hasn't happened before pinkie pie. I mean you did it to discord,celestia did it to nightmare moon,and sunset shimmer was banished to the human world. On a side note didn't chrysalis and her hive die? I mean being sent flying at super sonic speeds will hurt when they land. Oh and imagine what happened to the changelings inside buildings. Cleaning will have a hell of a work day. 
Conclusion:Villains can be hurt in horrible ways so as long as its not on screen or its not dying directly

It hard to fly when you're hurtling at break neck speeds. Insect wings are not good for recovering from tumbles trust me. Besides if they could fly why didn't they right themselves out of the shield. Either the changelings were too hurt by the shield or they're going too fast
