Only Chris's side of the conversation was archived in most chats.

|Just wanted to make a post on here: I am liking TSSF so far, and I will happily be contributing with the online template with myself and my Unicorn Counterpart and OC, Nightstar, along with my other pony OCs. Even some themed simple SHIP cards featuring Sonichu and Rosechu. Gonna make this game Zappin' Percent Cooler.|
Night Star Custom Card
12 August 2019
|Hey, y'all. This is Christine. I am just gettin into the Shipfic game, with ideas for my own expansion for the game, Sonichu-Themed, along with my other MLP OCs as well. For now, I just designed, for starters, a Start card with my Equestrian Self-Counterpart, Nightstar Sonichu.|
Offering Sonichu Books
16 August 2019
|There will be another two cards of Nightstar in the mix, plus "Sonichu" 12-9, which talks about Nightstar, is available directly from us. We are talking with Traveling Artist Stable in distributions at conventions at the moment. Feel free to direct message me if you'd like a copy of the book, or even the whole set of "Sonichu" Books; there are more than 14 books in the set at this time. Working on book 15. I'm have them printed through Lulu, but keeping the links on the hush-hush. Damn Haters and Bullies.
Anyhow, I've made four more cards for the Expansion.
16 August 2019
|Hey, I just wanted to get the details: what is the situation on the Timeline (or Post-Apocalyptic) stamp on some of the cards? How does it affect the gameplay? Or is it just a descriptive mark on those cards?|
17 August 2019
|Ah, yes, I gave a contact card in that same interest as well. When will the cards be printed, @N_A_Larson?|
17 August 2019
|Ah. After the cards have been designed, there will be two full expansions: one set featuring the Sonichus and Rosechus, and the other with our MLP OCs, counting and in addition to Nightstar.
And if it is that easy, maybe I should up the requirement ante from four Ponies to Six in the same turn.
It shall be made available in cooperation with a distributor, such as the Traveling Artists Stable; we will likely reach out to others as well. We will have to get these cards printed, officially, by the right people.
We are still figuring out some of the game and card details, but we are grasping the idea fairly well and quick.
Fortunately, there is still time in this, as we continue to work on the "Sonichu" Books as well.

|Here are a few new cards featuring my beloved Christine. Also, based on the actual phenomenon between her and I, Magi-Chan Sonichu.|
Asking N_A_Larson's Input on Card
25 August 2019
|Ah, thank you, @N_A_Larson; I shall update the card with that proper terminology.
I would also be interested in hearing your thoughts about the "Body Switching" card, @N_A_Larson. I have seen some room for error, such as playing this effect first, in particular to ship, say, a Unicorn with an Earth who is already shipped with three other Unicorns, to attain the Goal of the set of Unicorn Ships, should it be applicable and obtainable at the time.
But afterwards, say "Replace" or "Swap" went into effect, and the effect happened with one or both ponies affected by "Body Switching"; I would imagine the effect of switching the two Ponies who were Switched back to their original positions would become moot, and the remaining one, if the other was replaced, would remain where it was.
On the other hand, with one or multiple Swap(s), and Both Ponies remain on the grid at the end of the turn, the Switched Ponies would be swapped with each other into their Present Positions on the Grid. (edited)

|Well, I had thought the terminology in the effect, in particular, "Swap the two Pony cards back to their original positions" in the definition of the term "Original". I sense the term "Present Positions" would be more accurate, as opposed to the possible misinterpretation of the original starting positions of the two cards before being switched. And I went over the meaning of the effect in as much detail as possible of the intended and foreseen outcomes.|
Body Swapping Comparison
26 August 2019
|After, at the end of the turn. And this is relevant to body-switching for real: any events of either individual that happen while the souls are in the opposite body (in the situation) happen under the influence of the soul that happened during the time. And after the two switch back, the situations remain the same, but the only ones that really remember the details of the ships they established during the time is the soul that made it happen.
You can get a better visual idea when you see the Season 9 episode when Fluttershy and Angel swapped, though this situation is more based on that which has happened between Christine and I, Magi-Chan Sonichu; still in progression. (edited)
Asking Input on Simplifying Text
26 August 2019
|My mistake on the spoiler. And that is why I bring the card's effect's wording to you for critiquing and simplifying.|
|I am open for input on how to simplify the wording, if you would please. To spare from having to scroll up, here is just the text.|
|Body Switching - "When you play the Pony card to this Ship card after attaching it to the grid, you must swap the two Pony cards after activating the Power of the Pony card coming into play after playing this Ship card. At the end of your turn, swap the two Pony cards back to their original positions on the grid."|
Reply to Input
26 August 2019
|That is very good. Although the Body Switch is not supposed to be permanent, unless one of the two was removed from play, because it is usually fated in a Body Switching scenario be switched back. You can look at "Freaky Friday" or the "Switcheroo" episode of Teen Titans.
So, working from what you have provided, I feel the following would likely suffice:
"Swap the positions of the two pony cards attached to this ship. At the end of your turn, if neither of the affected pony cards has been removed from the shipping grid, swap them back to their present positions."
Or simply, "Swap them back" at the end.
20 October 2019
I've been still hard at work on mine and Magi-Chan's set of TSSSF cards for our new deck and expansion packs. I've figured out from my own Solitaire gameplay, and from the mechanics I have found in making some of our new cards. So, I came up with some Expanded Rules for a couple of new cards to go with the previous Rule cards.
I would like y'all's feedback on what we have so far, and improvement suggestions are welcomed.
Possible MLP Cons
27 October 2019
Unbeknownst to Chris, Seaquestria Fest has him on a preemptive ban list.
|Still a remainder of basic Ship cards to figure out to match the number in the Core deck Perhaps I may play with you at BABSCon.
At least I am mostly set for the event and travel planning,
I'll check out Trotcon; perhaps I can fit that in as well. At least there is plenty of time until 2020
There's also AirBnB.
What is the name of the new Maryland Convention?
That's in California
