The (Iron) Will to Power by ultraspacemobile The (Iron) Will to Power by ultraspacemobile
Iron Will has one happenin' pad. I think we all know what goes on in a pad like this--and it definitely does _not_ involve large quantities of coke. At any rate, the joke is hackneyed and effete, but the image made me laugh, so I made a comic of it.

All the stuff Iron Will says is quoted in a slightly modified form from Nietzsche. I just flipped through the text and picked some parts I happened to underline. Don't look for any deeper meaning in it.

I love this picture; Nietzsche and ponies are a combination made of win. Just a German tip though: the proper translation is "Thus Spoke Zarathustra." The German title is "Also sprach Zarathustra," and confusion between the meaning of "also" in the two languages is quite common. The English also is "auch" in German.

I don't understand why you felt compelled to deliver a German lesson. You say specifically that "The German title is 'Also sprach...'". The title in the comic is "Also sprach..." with a silly pony pun standing in for the name.

I don't understand what you would change about the German.

I read that entire quote in Iron Will's voice =D (Except for Luna's part which I read in her "Royal Canterlot" voice)

Let's see, aside from the philosophical minotaur we've got Trixie acting normal and the dark goddess of the moon asking if swimwear makes her butt look big.

If it weren't for Vinyl on the theremin I'd say this must be "OOC theater" or something.

Iron will went to The Virgin Islands. They are now called The Islands. (I vote we make Iron Will the pony Chuck Norris)

I second this vote.

Iron Will once defeated a manticore, a dragon, and four timberwolves in a wrestling match. He won by tying them together with a hydra.

The reason Luna went to the moon wasn't actually for power. They were actually fighting over who got to have sex with Iron Will. Celestia ended up winning and Luna went to the moon, but she still got to have sex. Iron will did Celestia 100 times then went to the moon and did Luna 1,000 times. The royals thought this should not of been put into history so they changed it to look like a power struggle. All died a day after the changes were made final.

Fun Fact: Discord started out as an apprentice to Celestia, until he met Iron Will, that is.

Rarity wasn't actually hallucinating when she thought Tom was a diamond. Iron Will squeezed the rock so hard that it broke the boundaries of time and space.
