Physics by LissyStrata Physics by LissyStrata
(Do not ask me what all those symbols mean. I have no idea.)

I desperately needed a break from reference sheets, so here's some of my Derpy/Master headcanon.

If Derpy had been human, she would have been a brilliant physicist. Since Equestria doesn't have much use for this, she's a mailmare with "useless" knowledge.

The Master, upon arriving in Equestria, rented a room from Derpy. After a few days of ignoring her affections, he realized she was probably one of the most intelligent ponies he'd met. Enough to somewhat tolerate her as an assistant.

Derpy is happy because not only is this a pony who finally understands her, but he also pays part of his rent in muffins.

moonlight: I'm sorry, but these symbols make no sense in this formation.

me: The point is that she says smart things onee-san.

moonlight: It's not smart, it's random!

me: Sorry LissyStrata, my sister moonlight is too logical to get jokes.
...I ALWAYS thought that Derpy was actually smart...

The Master makes the best Muffins this side of Gallopfrey, part of his rivalry with the Doctor stems from the Doctor trying to copy the recipe.

Well, let's see, that's a pressure differential equation, an equality for mass, a sum of forces which gives us zero for some reason, and a wave frequency... yeah, general stuff.

You said you don't know what any of those symbols mean, I'll explain them:


First diagram (x angle y): Arbitrary diagram of the acute angle of intersection between the vector x with the vector y. Perhaps used to demonstrate Dot (scalar) product.

f: Unrelated to adjacent formulae. Presumably frequency.

Sigma F = 0 : The sum of all forces (the resultant force) on a body is 0 when the body is in equilibrium (no acceleration).

M = Rho V : Rearrangement of the formula for density (represented by the Greek letter Rho) 'Rho = M/V' (M = mass, V = Volume).

Theta: Unrelated to adjacent formulae. The Greek letter theta is commonly used for notation of an angle (often in radians).

delta P = Rho g delta h : Fluid mechanics formula. Relates pressure change to the density (Rho) of a fluid, the force of gravity (g) and the change in depth (delta h).

Wave function diagram: The peak (point of greatest amplitude) to peak distance is the wavelength (notated as lambda), peak to trough (point of smallest amplitude) is lambda/2 . This could be the wave function for anything from fluid dispersion (most likely considering the adjacent fluid mechanics equation) to electromagnetic radiation.

v: Unrelated to adjacent formulae. Lower case v is common notation of velocity - the vector of speed.

Okay, so I got the mass/density equation wrong (thought it was a misprint of momentum), but I still say she's describing the destructive force of an incoming asteroid.

I think you should doublecheck what the word "headcanon" means, because it's technically not the correct word to use in that sentence
(but then again, I'm the kind of guy who will randomly latch onto a random detail and turn into the most persnickety troll on the web XD)

She'll take cupcakes in a pinch, but you have to scrape the frosting off first. :)

Derpy/Master is indeed an awesome pairing. :) Although personally my favourite has always been Ainley!Master. I think he might be slightly less predictable with regards to Derpy's affections. :)

Derpy makes me go :aww:. :nod:
