[Comic] Princess-ness Has Its Privileges by Obsequiosity [Comic] Princess-ness Has Its Privileges by Obsequiosity
This idea came to me, of all times, while I was brushing my teeth. My wife found me scribbling, "feather bookmarks" in a notebook while frothing at the mouth.

She worries sometimes...


[Huh. Something like a thousand people showed up today. Did I get EQD'd or something? What brings you to my humble doodle factory, weary travelers?

And as long as we're getting attention:

She could also use them for chores, too. Feather dusting would be a cinch! Though she would have to clean them much more often and sneeze numerous times.

she would also use them as quills instead of using Almshouses feathers

Heh heh. To me the funniest thing about this comic, is that even though I spent days drawing and coloring it, the whole "use them as quills" thing never occurred to me once.  It had to be bookmarks.  To everyone else, the quills thing was so obvious...

Thank you for your kind words!

The traditional spelling of his name is "Aloysius", which is a latin name similar to Louis or Luigi.  ("Luigi the Owl" amuses me far too much.)  
Lauren Faust has said it was "Owlowiscious", but wishes she had stuck a "y" in there to reference the original.  mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Owlowisciou…

Heh. Second panel is a hair on the derpy side, isn't it?  It's a slightly exaggerated/mostly butchered copy of a screenshot.

You just gave me an idea on how to preserve the feathers I use in hats: If the shaft id thin I can just put it in a book.

I assume older feathers get weak an can easily pulled out.
At leas that is how hair works.

I have been told that it's not so bad (like molting) as long as she stays away from "pinion" feathers, whatever those are. Surprising number of bird experts amoung the pony fans. Pegasus enthusiasts?

probably. i know pegasi are my favorite species myself (mostly thanks to Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo)...but i'm no expert either. i do know i see my pet bird plucking feathers occasionally, so maybe not to bad after all :shrug:

Next up: Quills & Sofas goes bankrupt, as Twilight's quill expenses constituted 82% of his gross revenue.

Haha, funny idea.

However I hope that Twilight will open herself to more then just reading and her magic, after all she can now fly and her strength and endurance increased, she can now try her luck in sport as well.

She's already last year's fifth place in the Running of the Leaves, so there's that...

I am genuinely curious to see how they use this event to develop Twilight as a character, though. Lots of story possibilities.

Dear Princess Celestia,

The automatic shoulder mounted quill dispensers that you get for becoming a princess are great, but what kind of magical discovery do I have to make to earn a lifetime supply of ink?

Your Faithful Student,
Twilight Sparkle

P.S.: On a totally different subject, how would a pony go about the reversal of a spell to create a pegasus/unicorn/squid chimera that has gone horribly wrong?
