Me: But your majesty, the economy is in a tailspin, our exports are down, and our food supplies are nearly depleted! Chrysalis: [continues laughing] Me: [under breath] Man, this would never have happened with Celestia... Chrys: What did you say?! Me: I said, uh, "Down with Equestria"? Chrys: Good, now get out... Me: Sure, but, we're still hungry... Chrys: OUT!
Crysalis: Oh, there's a 5 month wait until Season Three of My Little Pony? WELL I DON CARE! BWAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Me: Which means you will be under house arrest for five months. Crysalis:-HAHAHHAHAHAH wait what? *is shoved into mobile magic-proof prison cell* Me: *waves* Bye Crysalis. Crysalis: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Dun worry, it's just the evil characters that are under house arrest. Everyone else is just going along with their normal lives off-screen.
