Vai would totally be down to rescue Tryko'S-- OH WAIT SHE'S DEAD.
Thanks Alton. ;P
Ahahahaha. Look what I found in the backlogs:

This was back when Jaiye still had piercings. Bwahaha. The dancing in question happened on the first night Jaiye met Tyrrin, who explicitly posted that she was grinding on people in just the way that Tyrrin thought was distasteful. Hahaha. Awesome.
Oh man, Ehos really is clueless.
If it's the Abyss, it's Demons. Though the Qlippoth and the Demodands live there too I think.
I hate Qlippoths with a passion.
Playing a pure enchanter/illusion sorcerer, and the adventure path we're playing has a dungeon full of Qlippoths... They're /all/ immune to mind-affecting. I've had to get creative to help. XD
Kim: this is literally it. You haven't missed anything else. Settro teleported into Kim's classroom and said there was a demon, and Jacob said it was probably him.People present include Kim, Jacob, Vriska, Pyra, Dara, and possibly Phaedra and Ignace.

I typically describe Batman as Lawful Neutral with good tendancies when explaining alignment to new players due to all the reasons you just mentioned, where you said that was Chaotic Good.
Just pointing out that even with the same definitions you can end up with wildly different answers based on perspective.
Also, if you can ignore historical context then the same logic applies - Batman will eventually shift away from the "Dark Knight" era Batman and will become something else again, which is what I think Damiani and Icrhawk's point was. Frank Miller's Batman is definitely Evil, in my opinion.

Mercy isn't always "Good".
You can be merciful towards someone that doesn't deserve it, someone who won't repent or change their ways (and continue hurting people).
Sometimes, Mercy is killing people.
All depends on how it's defined, but it all falls under the purview of the Patron. ;)
Destiny/Fate is not any more powerful than any of the others. It's different from knowledge however. Fate isn't about actually knowing what is going to happen; it's about the idea that everything that happens is somehow planned out ahead of time and can't be changed. It doesn't even have to be true to be a powerful idea.
Besides, who wants to live in a deterministic universe anyway? Amirite? ;)
Hey, here's something to add to the good list:
The Champions (and by extension the Patrons) tend to be the ones that keep the Seeds of Destruction in check. It's already happened in-game once, and is actually the reason why Vai accepted her Championship in the first place (at least, in this time line): to defeat Khoda.

There's something about Full metal Alchemist that I could never get super into. I dunno exactly what it is, because I like the concept and some of the characters, but I am never able to get past the first 10 episodes of either series. Not sure.
If you wanna get technical, blood cells are largely iron. Metalbend. Game.
The main problem here is that the show doesn't define what is exactly "Earth", or "Metal".
Metalbending is justified because of impurities in the metal... ie, the fact that there is "earth" in steel.
So... what is exactly earthbending? That is easily the most difficult of them to define (especially in a sci-fi setting). I mean, most dirt and stone on our planet consists of things like carbon and silicon.
Water is something specific - dihydrogen oxide.
Fire is also easy - it's not actually firebending, it's energy bending, which is why firebending can make electricity.
Air... less easy, but could still be defined as bend able to being anything in a gaseous state.
Earth is by far the most troublesome though, and I don't have an easy answer to that. ;P
Interestingly, in greek times Platonic Solids - which we today use as our dice - were generally linked to the elements. d4s are Fire, d6s are Earth, d8s are Air, d12s are Cosmic, and d20s are Water.

Note: it's not Starlight, but Zilla who got whacked. Starlight is a defunct character, as her player quit the game, just so you know.
Zilla had visible and obvious Fae qualities though, so your theory still holds I'd say.
Maybe the murderer believes themselves self-righteous? Dragons on Agartha are widely considered evil, tieflings as well... And based on some of the actions of the Winter Court, I'm guessing Fae are at best treated as enigmatic and dangerous, and at worst evil.
I mean... So far it has all been teenaged girls...
Let's just hope we can find the killer before they open the Chamber of Secrets.
I am personally of the opinion that the Arcanist is not nearly as powerful as everyone thinks. I mean, maybe in a high level game, but the only thing broken about it, in my opinion, is not the Spellcasting aspect, but some of the Exploits... man. Counterspelling as an immediate action, even if it is a powered-down version of Counterspelling? Dimensional Slide, a 5ft step turned into 10*Arcanist level? Damn.
The Arcanist Exploits aside, the Spellcasting progresses as a Sorcerer (so, 1 level behind), but maxes out a Wizard's spells per day. So the Arcnist loses out on both the raw spells per day of the Sorcerer and the quick learning of the Wizard. To me, that's not worth being able to switch your prepared spells every day (or, with an Exploit, as a Full-round action).
Personally I think the Brawler, the Shaman and the Slayer are far more OP. The Brawler pretty much makes the Monk defunct as a class, and the Slayer almost does the same to the Ranger.
I am very happy with the Warpriest though, since options for a religious frontliner before were very limited - Paladins simply don't cut it (due to alignment restrictions).
Well, you're in luck then. The rest of the series considers the "Alternate Ending" as canon, since the author acknowledged how seriously bad that ending was. I would actually say that "Tears in the Snow" is probably the worst one of all of them, despite the fact that Cerulean is probably my favourite character in the series.
I can give PLENTY more distractions too, once you plow through the rest of that fic. ;)
Also, this fanfic is unintentionally nostalgic. My friends were really into MLP when I was in third grade so all the familiar names are a little weird to me. Bad childhood memories of the horrific movie ( you know, the one where the ponies get turned into dragons...and I then got woken up by little sisters waking up screaming in the middle of the night for a couple of weeks...ugh...so many nightmares and parents slept on anoth floor so it was my problem...I rather preferred the ponies as dragons...) are a lot of why I don't even bother to watch the new series. Well, that and when I did give it a chance I wanted to hit my head against the wall before the episode ended...not my cup of tea.
Heh, I totally get why watching the show would be frustrating, but to me, it's like a Disney movie. The characters are needlessly dense, the big baddies always get Deus Ex'd away, but at the same time I can't help it. It's like liquid joy into my brain.
Re: The fic... Honestly it actually reminds me a lot of Avalon at times. Hell... In Song of Whispers... There's a pony who loves to sing who cannot use his voice because it's so destructive.
