I was enjoying this comic until my brain said: "I wonder what the least amount of moves to change the gems from their panel 2 configuration to their panel 3 configuration is." Testing ensued. I cut out some paper shapes and arranged them just like in panel 2 then I moved them to their configuration in panel 3 and counted the moves.

The problem was I didn't know how Rarity rearranged the gems, so I did two different styles. One just swapping any two gems and one only swapping adjacent gems. The best result I got I assumed to be the lowest.

The results were
Any gems: 8
Only adjacent gems: 21

Phew! :)

I'm not sure if these are the best so if anyone comes up with a lower score, tell me. ( I really hope there isn't. :( )

P.S Nice comic!

Nah, she would've spent too much time organizing the gems in a more 'fabulous' pattern, then gasped and fainted when she had 3 in a row and they disappeared.

This DOES look like space, now that you mention it :)

It is suppose to be a cave full of gems, where Rarity is gem hunting.

lol, for a moment I thought this was a Wreck it Ralph joke.

Now I got the image of Greedy Spike wrecking the building while holding Rarity captive.

Wonder who would play Felix?
