Ask Ditzy Ghoul
Big question incoming. How did Red Eye and the Goddess meet?
Anonymous

No clue. I first met Red Eye when he gave New Appleoosa his Stable’s water talisman, but I don’t know when he did anything aside from what Littlepip discovered and disclosed in her book.

It’s me again. I really get around.

Your camera does wonders for you, Ditzy. I think most ponies that interact with you through your blog forget that, like me, you were starting to advance in age at the time of the War, and that we both SHOULD have some wrinkles and crows feet.

You’re still beautiful though. No matter what’s happened to you over the years, you’re beautiful. :)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I wouldn’t go around claiming to be beautiful in the way that Velvet Remedy or Rarity are, but so long as my husband thinks I’m cute, that’s good enough for me.

So, Ditzy. Sucks about your family. But you know who else lost their family? Batmare.

Ditzy!

And if clop is to be believed…I don’t have to ask. Horse cock looks like it could make an effective club or blackjack.

DITZY!!!

Hey look, it’s me. I’m doing a thing.

Are ghouls immune or resistant to infection? open wounds and masses of rotting skin on the body would cause severe infection and death for most ponies, yet ghouls seem unaffected.

Immune. Due to the fact that our flesh is nectrotic and our bodies are saturated with radiation, any bacteria or viruses that might try to attach to our bodies die off almost instantaneously.

What sort of mobile technology did Zebras use to match equestrian tanks, boats, and airships? Its not really mentioned in littlepips book, besides the talismans like the bloodwing for wings temporarily, but Equestrians had thunderhead airships. There are only so many dragons after all, and I doubt such a prideful creature would stoop to carrying dozens of Zebra troops on its back.

Actually zebras were the ones who developed tanks, troop transports, and naval warships. Equestria copied some of their designs and made their own improvements based on what they had that the zebras didn’t. Ultimately, Equestria had just about every advantage in the war over the zebras save one: Experience. Earth ponies have strength, unicorns have magic, pegasi have flight, and zebras have tenacity (plus their own brand of magic, although they require external devices to actually use it, where ponies have innate powers). The zebra lands are harsh, and they, as a culture, are far more used to struggling to survive and fighting in general. Equestria was a land of plenty, and knew nothing of actual war at the time the Great War started.

The zebras struck first against Equestria when the resource conflicts came to a head, expecting the inexperienced ponies to be easy picking. They then spent the rest of the war being beaten back and having to resort to ever increasingly desperate means to keep from being completely wiped out. Of course, ponies wouldn’t have actually tried to commit genocide, but the zebras were used to fighting for their very right to survive, and assumed the war with Equestria was no different. Which is why, even when offered the chance for a peaceful resolution, attempted to assassinate Princess Celestia (although Littlepip discovered that they had intended for Princess Luna to be the one in the crosshairs).

How many ex-Raiders have you come across, and do you trust that Raiders can reform? Or do you believe that one a Raider, always a Raider?

I maintain a healthy level of skepticism, I wouldn’t have lived as long as I have otherwise. That said, I love hearing stories of raider ponies who do better. Who aspire to be better. Many times raiders are a product of being raised by a previous generation of raiders and simply don’t know any other way of living. I’ve met about a dozen over the years who turned themselves around. The key factors for many of those that do reform are either seeing something that gives them hope for a better life, or having an experience that shows them the truth of the suffering they inflict on others.

After remembering a question you once answered here, (in regards to ghoul pegasi still having the ability to fly without feathers) another question came to mind. If a pegasi loses their wings, can they still fly in some capacity? Or is that ability lost forever? It's morbid, I know, but answers to hypothetical scenarios like this tend to be the difference between life and death out here. Even if the sun has come back, life can still be brutal.

Unless they get a cybernetic replacement, no. Just like a unicorn with a broken horn can’t use magic, a pegasus with broken or missing wings can’t fly. Like the unicorn’s horn, the wings of a pegasus serve as a conduit for their innate magical abilities. While a broken wing just keeps the pegasus grounded, if they lost a wing, they wouldn’t be able to walk on clouds or control the weather any more either.

You've gotta have hooves to shop here? What about Griffins!

I was just reading off the sign outside my store. You have a point though, and someone else was concerned about my phrasing. I’ll have to see about fixing the sign.

No joke, just imagine what would happen if a minotaur felt like they were being discriminated against. ~ Purple Haze

Minotaurs have hooves though.
