I don't know what Jake's talking about, there's nothing manlier than ponies. Maybe it's because this one isn't official, I dunno.

But yeah, guessing people will enjoy this one. Know Adam was wanting to do this scene for awhile - actually based off something I wrote ages ago - and I'd say this is a pretty good spot for it. Am pretty happy with how this came out, and it serves as a nice close-out (aside from one panel building off of this) for the kids for this chapter. The next page will get us wrapped up there.

Have we gone into detail on Lore's whole pony thing before? If not, Adam came up with her gushing over them like crazy a long time ago, back when things were first being planned, kind of intended to just be this ridiculously silly yet cute little thing. And now if you look at it today when we're actually doing it we each own at least one pony toy apiece (and I own a lot more than that). Go figure.

Heheh... Yeah, this came from a short story Martin wrote way back of Jake reading a bedtime story to Jenny and Lore, and as soon as I read it I knew I had to somehow work it in. Bits like the book's title and Jake's line about facial hair were lifted directly from the story.

I think the timing of it works out nicely since Jake would probably only agree to do this after the thing with Spencer. They raise a good point- they DID have a rough day, and after seeing them all captured and possibly-dead, Jake is probably ready to be WAY nicer to them just because, deep down, he's just glad they're alright.

Heh... But yeah, the Pony thing is weird- just gave it to Lore as kind of a typical little-girl interest waaaay back when planning it, then before it started me and Martin wound up becoming Bronies. Works out nicely- lets us give Lore a lot of in-jokes on it. Heck, she's gonna spend the next chapter running around in a Fluttershy dress.

I laughed so hard at Jake's facial hair line, that is funny, and next Jake will be singing "Good Night Demon Slayer" to all six of them for their bedtime lullaby(and yes I got that from your DA page Adam).

Heh... While I do think of that scenario every time I hear the song, I don't think Jake would actually be willing to sing to the kids anytime soon. Considering they had to be knocked out and strung up for him to read them a story, I think somebody'd have to be stabbed in the lungs before he started singing.

Are you sure you don't mean "testosterone", Jake?

That'd be it. ^^
