[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/ Motherly Scootaloo]] (formerly Pregnant Scootaloo)(warning, the author does NOT currently own th Pregnant Scootaloo URL, and it currently redirects you to a site with a virus) is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' webcomic on Tumblr. Like the title stated [[TeenPregnancy the story is based off Scootaloo getting pregnant from a classmate]], and shows what comes after. [[https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=u2Do3CEAqu9Ot9OefMHqhDS2BOuOPjh6sSllSQtV3s19iWce-H3tINTFQKS&dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8d96fc0752e9614158f04872d2f2ae25dc Now has a]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/60016627682/donations-from-now-on donations bar]].

!!Tropes contained in ''Webcomic/MotherlyScootaloo'':
* AbortedArc: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/39615890536/page-1 Sandy's backstory]] is cut short, with the author saying it's on hiatus for a while in favor of focusing on the main story.
* AdultFear: The current storyline has a ''lot'' of this. Just think about the possibility of loosing your child to a JerkAss couple who probably won't let you see him.
** Subverted [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/52919632686 here]]. At first it seems like Twilight left Lightning on the table alone, but WordOfGod says that [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/52920435763/twilight-left-the-baby-on-the-table-alone-well-if She was in the room just off panel, and that not showing her was merely artistic choice, and Lightning was never in harm’s way]].
* [[spoiler: AlternateTimeline]]: Implied. [[spoiler: Thanks to the Discord Doctor Whooves entering the Motherly Scootaloo universe, he brought in the bleeding that effecting the universe. In this case, Raincatcher's mother Clearwater is murdered despite Sandy remembering her still being alive]]
* AlternateUniverse: Somewhat, [[WordOfGod the author says that]] [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53617353711/how-canon-are-seasons-2-and-3-in-motherly-scootaloo unless something in the main continuity]] ''directly contradicts'' the comic’s events, he will consider the events (from the show, comics, etc.) canon, since [[TimeSkip Motherly is meant to take place a few years later]].
* AmoralAttorney: Subverted for [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/51505282670/some-of-you-are-curious-about-my-parents-so Rain Catcher’s mother Clearwater]], who, [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/47422552321/cw-i-couldnt-hear-you-over-my-psychopathy-and despite an]] EvilLawyerJoke, seems [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/47842235486/now-you-know-what-happened-with-the-note significantly nicer than her son]].
** Apparently played straight with [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/53873001423 the Canterlot snob’s laywer]], he’s apparently ''so bad'', whenever Sandy finds an attourney, ''[[ScrewThisImOutOfHere they drop the case]]!''
*** It turns out to be [[spoiler:[[Franchise/AceAttorney Franziska]].]]
* AprilFoolsDay: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/46838599518 In 2013]]. Be warned, this is quite possibly the most NightmareFuel and TearJerker post yet... It has to be seen to be believed.
** A subverted example is that the blog was meant to be a joke, but it caught on.
** [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/47061329659/on-april-1st-of-last-year-i-drew-the-very-first According to]] WordOfGod, the comic is based of something he did for AprilFoolsDay 2012 and decided to expand upon 2 days later.
* AscendedExtra: As [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/36777466867/i-wonder-how-many-people-know-sandy-and-rain-catcher this mod post]] points out, Sandy and Rain Catcher are actual background ponies from the main song of ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend In Deed]]''.
* ArtEvolution: The art [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/tagged/archive/chrono gets]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/29114964826/i-hope-you-all-like-scootaloos-new-hair-style better]] as the story goes on, going from black and white to [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37153122950 color]] as well.
** Also, the way [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37516435682/we-interrupt-the-story-for-just-a-moment-to-thank Lightning's eyes]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/44654014481 changes from]] canon MLP infant eyes to more like the other characters.
** The author even lampshades it on [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/37374270317/boy-my-art-really-has-improved-this-year-by-a this]] mod post.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Invoked, Scootaloo chose Lightning Blitz's name ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/50383339042/was-it-just-me-or-did-derpy-seem-different-from because]]'' [[RuleOfCool she thought it was awesome]]. If he had been a girl, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/21446737235 she would have used "Spectrum Chaser instead]].
* BadassBoast: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not Here]], after hitting her RageBreakingPoint when [[{{Jerkass}} Upper Crust]], after [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37298093164/eye-color-fixed saying]] ‘’[[MoralEventHorizon Scootaloo would be better off dead]]’’, continues to insult both her and Sandy, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37369351982 going as far as to call Sandy a terrible mother]], complete with RedEyesTakeWarning!
---> '''[[{{Jerkass}} Jet Set]]''': You’ll be hearing from our lawyers.
---> '''Sandy''': '''Fine! Bring your lawyers! I won’t let you have that baby so long as I’m breathing!'''
---> '''Warden''': As long as you’re leaving, let me give you an express pass back to Canterlot! (Teleports the snobs away).
* BackStory: Sandy [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/39615890536/page-1 here]]. Sadly, it's on hiatus.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: We don’t know much about it yet, but apparently [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/52004352476/this-is-arrow-its-a-weird-picture-because-this most of Rain Catcher’s cousins on his second dad’s side are either crazy or in jail]].
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[{{Jerkass}} Jet Set and Upper Crust]], as anyone who's watched their introductory episode in canon could tell you.
* BreakTheCutie: Scootaloo is subject to this a few times but seems to be getting better and returning to some level of normalcy.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: This happens often with comments. Also, as [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/50383339042/was-it-just-me-or-did-derpy-seem-different-from these strips show]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/50850406105/4-months-ago-kicked-through-a-chalkboard Scootaloo knows she's in a Tumblr]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/51304178024 and seems to mainly think of the other Tumblr worlds as other dimensions]]. She can also usually tell when someone is from another Tumblr.
* ButtMonkey: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/25708723501/darn-and-i-thought-thatd-work-too-ohmahgosh Apple Bloom has]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/25715502990 a shade of this when]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/25781851900/no-cutie-marks-but-painting-is-really-fun the CMC are out and about]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/26140412969 seeming to end up on the short end of the stick]] ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/26310218160/to-be-continued-also-i-guess-this-is-how-im a lot]]''.
* TheCameo: Motherly Scootaloo appears in [[http://postcrusade-mod.tumblr.com/post/52780182259/askbitesizedrarity-wooo-100-follower this]] [[http://askbitesizedrarity.tumblr.com/ Ask Bite-Sized Rarity post]].
* TheCasanova: Apparently, Rain Catcher’s stepdad [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53119862734/apparently-its-fathers-day-for-some-of-you had this mindset]], [[YourCheatingHeart even cheating on his wife]] and thinking of girls as “points”. He tried to teach this behavior to RC... which is what lead to Scootaloo’s pregnancy.
* CleanPrettyChildbirth: Subverted. Though it may ''seem'' like it at first (as can be seen [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36276390442 here]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36446803239/mod-welp-babies-born-blogs-over-everyone-pack here]]), [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53603126674/the-scene-where-scootaloo-gives-birth-seems-to-happen-a according]] [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53604512153/about-how-long-is-it-between-lightning-blitz-being-born to]] WordOfGod, the birth scene was rushed, with significant parts of the process cut out (both to hasten the plot [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53605561569/people-wanted-to-see-lightning-covered-in-birth-fluids and prevent a]] {{Squick}} situation from a birth fluid-covered Lightning Blitz and Scootaloo being sewn up from her C-section). The author ‘’does’’ feel that he could have handled that part of the story better though, and not rushed through it so much.
* ContinuityNod: Sandy [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/24523168357 refrences the]] NoodleIncident (s) that caused Scootaloo to come home [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles covered in tree sap]].

** Also, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38690019283 the hospital food]] is ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep still]]'' horrible.
* {{Crossover}}: Lighting Blitz is now under the care of [[http://askmisstwilightsparkle.tumblr.com/ Miss Twilight Sparkle]], in a different world, thanks to the technology of The Doctor from [[http://askdiscordwhooves.tumblr.com/ Ask Discord Whooves]] (since the comics take place in different worlds.

*** As per WordOfGod, [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/52155661035/of-course-the-strips-from-the-coop-occur-in-a-separate while The Coop strips have a separate continuity,]] [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/52147178444/ask-the-elemental-four-said-i-dont-see-any all the other crossovers probably happened]] (just not necessarily in the order they were posted).

** [[http://lightningblitzanswers.tumblr.com/post/56811312713/beware This]] post is a parody of ‘’WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom’’ (with a follow-up [[http://thecoopontlc.tumblr.com/post/59222572272 Coop strip]]). One fan [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/59223340842/i-know-it-doesnt-match-the-label-on-his-suit-but-i gave him the]] FanNickname “Frightening Blitz”.
* CutenessProximity: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/48651356426/this-is-the-best-birthday-ive-ever-had Lightning tends to]] induce this. [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/49812690598 Apparently, even]] ''Rainbow Dash'', who has shown incredible resistance to a RidiculouslyCuteCritter on a [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E7MayTheBestPetWin prior occasion]], isn't immune!
* DarkerAndEdgier: "The Birthing", due largely to the presence of [[KnightOfCerebus Jet Set and Upper Crust]], though it's become somewhat LighterAndSofter again after that.
** The story in general is a somewhat darker than the source material (since the premise is a young pony getting pregnant, it’s to be expected).
* TheDiaperChange: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/40315271830/askdiscordwhooves-self-worth-the-longer-you Here]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/48651356426/this-is-the-best-birthday-ive-ever-had here]].
** Referenced as a NoodleIncident that occured during Derpy’s time in maternity school [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/33448294883/ladyderpysphotos-that-was-a-funny-day-in here]].
* DisappearedDad: The father of Scoot's baby, Rain Catcher, left her after he found out she was pregnant. His adventures have their [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/ own Tumblr now]].
** Also, there has been ''no'' mention of Scootaloo's dad ''at all'', even in flashbacks.
** As of [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/60777571309 these]] [[http://lightningblitzanswers.tumblr.com/post/61043066334 few]] [[http://lightningblitzanswers.tumblr.com/post/61068171968 posts]], Lightning Blitz and Rain Catcher have finally met face to face.
* [[spoiler: DownerEnding]]: If you don’t win the Court case game and [[spoiler: prove Scootaloo's innocents of murder]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/46838599518 this is the end result]].
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Scootaloo gets them [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36648073779 here]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36712378649/there-will-be-a-short-break-between-the-end-of here]] after the KickTheDog moment mentioned below. Luckily, she improves by the next time we see her eyes.
** She also had them [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/32001587370/part-1-part-2-part-3-part-4-part-5-scootaloo after her]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/45885098673 mother died]] from cancer.
* [[spoiler: EasilyForgiven]]: After the whole custody drama, [[spoiler: Scootaloo names Upper Crust and Jet Set godparents to Lightning Blitz after being told they would of never gone with the murder charges if they were false, which it was]]. Subverted with Sandy.
* EatThat: At one point, Scootaloo says she'd rather ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/23074469517/honestly-apologize-to-diamond-tiara-id-rather eat her own scooter]]'' than apologize for ''[[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome kicking DT through the chalkboard]]''. [[ForegoneConclusion Of course]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/23110552804/oh-sweet-celestia-it-just-had-to-be-chocolate this happens]].
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Jerkasses Has Standards]]: Even though Jet Set and Upper Crusted wanted Lightning Blitz badly, [[spoiler: they would of drop the murder charges against Scootaloo if they thought they were false, which it was, and not cause an innocent filly to suffer]].
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Despite their KickTheDog [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36569580007 moments]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36648073779 towards Scootaloo]], especially when they say that ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37298093164/eye-color-fixed she was better off dead]]'', they seem [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not unable to recognize]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37369351982 their own]] [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]], and how much they hurt Scootaloo.
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[JerkAss Jet Set and Upper Crust]], who seem polite at first, but [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36569580007 the facade is]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37298093164/eye-color-fixed quickly dropped when Sandy was gone]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37369351982 and when they just couldn't bother]].
* Foreshadowing: WordOfGod has [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37722442676/opinion-on-discord-whooves-inclusion this]] to say about the Doctor Whooves crossover hints.
** Since the URL for the comic has changed, here’s [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/31106680386 Link #1]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/31260394623/mod-how-exactly-does-tumblr-continuity-work Link #2]], and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/33863201191 Link #3]].
* FourthWallMailSlot: See MediumAwareness.
* GoryDiscretionShot: We never see Scootaloo’s ruptured C-section injury, only [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37600596997 blood]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37677330400 blood-stained hooves]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37721792369/askdiscordwhooves-what-if-you-were-really bandages]].
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: In [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36712378649/there-will-be-a-short-break-between-the-end-of this strip]], Scootaloo sneaks out of the hospital with Lightning Blitz ''ridiculously'' easy. You think they would’ve wised up after the ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep last time]]'' something like that happened.
** [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37153122950 It isn’t even]] ''noticed'' until ''[[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37225395923 the next morning]]!''
* {{Hammerspace}}: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38364000253/askdiscordwhooves-hey-everyone-guess-what Here]], due to The Doctor’s hidden pockets.
* HeroicRROD: Scootaloo exerts herself too much after [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/36712378649/there-will-be-a-short-break-between-the-end-of taking Lightning Blitz from the hospital]], causing [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37225395923 her C-section stitches to rupture]], and is only saved by [[BigDamnHeroes the timely arrival]] of [[Series/DoctorWho The]] [[http://askdiscordwhooves.tumblr.com/ Doctor]] in his Tardis (though the Tardis is the one who brought him there), who bandages her and brings her to the hospital from [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53776656684/alright-if-you-wont-address-that-what-happened-to The Everfree Forest.]]
* ImplausibleDeniability: Even after [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/45630741398/lets-get-started-keep-in-mind-that-this-blog this]], which ''clearly'' shows that RC pushed Scoot on after she had second thoughts, he [[UnreliableNarrator still blames]] ''[[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/45642819712 her]]'' [[NeverMyFault for getting pregnant]] (even if he ''does'' admit he did have a part in it [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/45712936527 here]], he still pushes a lot of responsibility her way).
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: According to WordOfGod, [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/51773276667/what-made-you-decide-to-make-the-baby-a-boy-not-a-girl he made Lightning Blitz a boy to help even things out]], as the major canon [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic' MLP:FIM]] characters are mainly female, saying “Equestria needs more stallions”.
* InTheBlood: Apparently, athleticism, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/32001060672/part-1-part-2-part-3-part-4-part-5-scootaloo competitiveness]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/51775165887/http-ask-factory-scootaloo-tumblr-com determination]] and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38770555831/part-1 energy]] [[ItRunsInTheFamily run in the family]].

* {{Retcon}}: An earlier post made it seem like Motherly Scootaloo's Diamond Tiara was actually Chubby Diamond Tiara, who is much nicer, but a later post revealed that they were two different ponies and that world's Tiara is still a huge jerk.
** Another one happen with Derpy; the first Derpy was from Photo Shoot Derpy who is a model for Photo Finish and is dating Warden. Later it was change to Out of Work Derpy, who was fired from the MLPFIM show and takes odd jobs. Which makes this more noticeable is that the first Derpy was seen in a plot point of Sandy finding a steady job. Of course since these two retcons happen post [[spoiler: Discord Whooves entering the Motherly Scootaloo's universe and brought in the bleeding]], it might make [[FridgeBrilliance more sense]].

* {{Tomboy}}: Scootaloo was this initially.
** TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: As [[WordOfGod the author]] lampshades in [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/51775686065/i-love-how-you-had-scootaloo-change-from-a-pregnant this]] mod post, as a result of her motherhood and subsequent CharacterDevelopment, she has accepted more of her feminine side without letting it detract from who she was (which is what she [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/29396449236 thought would happen]]). This is shown by [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/29114964826/i-hope-you-all-like-scootaloos-new-hair-style her new]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/29396449236 hairstyle]], and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/47416707266/sandy-well-whoever-it-was-gave-you-a-very-nice her excitement about getting spa passes for her birthday]].
* TraumaCongaLine: Scootaloo. ''Oh GOD, Scootaloo''. The story starts off with [[TeenagePregnancy her]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/20414564366/im-bored-and-sandy-is-being-a-jerk-ask-me-stuff pregnant]]. ''Then'' we find out that her [[MissingMom mom died]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/32000783308/part-1-part-2-part-3-part-4-part-5-scootaloo several years back]], and she ended up being taken care of by a friend of her mother who [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/24709940213 promised her Scootaloo would go to a good home]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/45885098673 causing her to act because of an unconscious hope that that would cause her to return]]. We also find out that the father of her child left her when he found out (not to mention that there was a lot of teasing, mainly by [[JerkAss Diamond Tiara]]) and Sandy (the previously mentioned foster mom), [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/21446737235 put her unborn child up for adoption]], [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/22177538806 despite Scootaloo wanting to keep the foal]]. Then Scootaloo [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/26310218160/to-be-continued-also-i-guess-this-is-how-im has an argument]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/26432630418/to-be-continued with Apple Bloom]], and [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/26569887985/to-be-continued smashes her head into a mirror]] (luckily, [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/27945166267/just-ask-rainbow-dash Rainbow Dash agreed to]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/28455729293/and-with-this-i-officially-am-accepting-questions watch her along with Fluttershy]], giving [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/28947631944/i-forgot-applebloom-was-staying-at-fluttershys her and Apple Bloom a chance to make up]]). ''[[FromBadToWorse Then]]'', during "The Birthing", she gets a MAJOR KickTheDog from [[JerkAss Jet Set and Upper Crust]], who Sandy had been thinking of as adoptive parents for Scootaloo's newborn son, [[AwesomeMcCoolname Lightning Blitz]], causing her to take Lightning from the hospital just so she can be with him, which causes her C-section wounds to rupture, nearly ''killing her'' (and according to WordOfGod, she ''would have'' if rescue hadn't come when it did). Thankfully, when the JerkAss couple says to Sandy that Scootaloo would be ''better off dead'', she has a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment (after giving the couple a ShutUpHannibal speech) about this, which leads to Lightning being taken into a sort-of foster home by a friend (since they don't have the money to take of him at the moment) and Scootaloo gets clearance to visit him relatively quickly (following a subversion of ThereAreNoTherapists), and Sandy [[HappilyAdopted officially]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38770555831/part-1 adopts]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38770571483/part-2 Scootaloo]], and their relationship has seriously improved, causing the story to take a turn for the better.
** [[spoiler: Then the custody trial begins, which turns into a murder trial in which Scootaloo is charge with the murder of Clearwater, Raincatcher's mom. She is proven innocent though. But the bad ending, in which Scootaloo is found guilty, she gets hanged]]. And WordofGod say this is canon in an alternate-universe sense.
* UndisclosedFunds: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/35808403333 Jet Set and Upper Crust]].
* WebcomicTime: The author actually does a pretty good job avoiding having a lot of this, the most notable example being when the approximately 2 month hiatus is translated to a 2 month TimeSkip in-story.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Despite the [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/20414564366/im-bored-and-sandy-is-being-a-jerk-ask-me-stuff arguments]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/22177538806 between]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/21446737235 them]] early on, Sandy cares for Scootaloo, and was only [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/24523168357 doing]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/24592984197 what]] she ''thought'' was best for the baby when she put it up for adoption, even hoping Scootaloo could visit (and she is ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified]]'' when she [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37771011233 realizes]] what her actions had resulted in).
* WhamLine: [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38770555831/part-1 I’d like]] [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/38770571483/part-2 to be your mom]].
* WouldHarmaChild: [[spoiler: In this case, the justice system would kill a child. In the interactive trial game in which Scootaloo is charge with murder of one person, and if you lose, they executed her by hanging. And she is only thirteen when this happens]].
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Magic?]]: Sandy gets along just fine with unicorns, but their ''magic'', on the other hand, she has a phobia of ([[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/35042953966/ladyderpysphotos as seen here]]). Lampshaded in [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/23517753845/asksteampunkscootaloo-pregnant-scootaloo-is this]] strip.
** [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/33863201191 This]] strip implies that her magic issues [[spoiler:at least partly stem from her frustration over the fact that there's no time travel spell that she can use to save the life of Scootaloo's mother, Firefly]].
** [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/40311494843/page-1-page-2 This]] strip of her BackStory shows that she apparently didn't have this problem when younger.
