My Little Raptormaniacs Page III

There are the pastel-colored dinosaurs you've been waiting for! Discord was too fun a character to not use in this story, even if only as a plot device. I had intended him to serve in this role ever since the initial conception of the storyline, so I was glad to see canonical confirmation that he was capable of accessing other dimensions. By the way, he's right to advise small dinosaurs not to walk behind sauropods.

In general, any references here to past events in MLP are meant to contextualize the story for other people who have watched the show and are not plot-essential. This page should be the most reference-heavy in the entire storyline, but I'm happy to answer questions if anyone is feeling lost.

If any MLP fans stumbled across this without prior knowledge of My Little Maniraptor and are wondering why Applejack doesn't have a show-accurate cutie mark, I explain it all here.

Coming Soon: My Little Raptormaniacs

Surprisingly (considering that this comic has a relatively small number of readers), I've been asked more than once whether I intend to do a crossover between Raptormaniacs and My Little Maniraptor, my unbridled parody of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. After sitting on a potential plot outline for the past few years, I have at last finalized the script and can now say that the answer is yes.

Will this be canon to Raptormaniacs? Yep. Good arguments can be made that this should have remained a non-canon venture, but my plans from the start were to have it influence the main plot in a number of significant ways, so too late. I have tried my best to provide enough background information where needed for readers who are unfamiliar with My Little Pony. But if any objections to this are solely on the basis of hatred or prejudice against the show, well... haters gonna hate.
