I never thought this panel would get the reactions it did... some fans were delighted, some were outraged. Fans went nuts over Luna's shirt. I wasn't trying to say anything... I just thought it was funny.
The other LUDICROUS fan response was to Mr Waddle, the little old-man pony. Somebody said that by including him, we were saying that Catholicism played a part in MLP. First: i drew him the way he appeared in the cartoon, collar and all. Second: IT'S A CARTOON, stop over-analyzing!
Luna's ever-changing t-shirt slogan was inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone, in which Ron Glass plays a demon tempting Sherman Hemsley out of his soul... he wore a red shirt that changed about every third scene.
A few more fun things I did with the page was the return of the Thomas Magnum pony alongside Rarity's parents, and having Vinyl ditch the damned club music for some of the Fab Four!
