Some say he once sired a pod of killer whales with a saucy mermaid, and that he'll respawn where the sidewalk ends.  All we know is, he's called Rust.

I always wanted to go to Equestria.  When I got the chance, I took the deal without reading the fine print.  To my surprise, I didn't arrive there as a pony, or even as a human.  It seems I get to view this world from a different perspective than what I've imagined.

My name is Echo.  I am a Diamond Dog.

Oooo...Bummer.

You had a good run though, and hey!

Saved the damsel in distress, major afterlife brownie points there.

It's not over until the fat lady sings, mate.

#3 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

A story about a diamond dog.  AWWWWWW YEAAAAAHHHHHH.

#4 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>217080

I know, right?  I can't recall ever seeing one, so I decided to just make it.  This might be the first of it's kind, I think.  If not, tell me who wrote the first one so I can kill them and take the credit.  :pinkiecrazy:

#5 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Woo! Another good story where the main character isn't turned into pony! :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

#6 · Chapter 1 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Finally a story that brakes from the mold of happens I congratulate you good sir.:trixieshiftright:

#7 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>217090  Well I know of stories with diamond dogs as main characters, but never a human turned diamond dog.  I read a human turned dragon before.  Best wishes man, happy writing!

#8 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

o shit, no wonder this story is so kick ass its by sir buck apple himself.

#9 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

In all honesty, you have the best ideas. This is gonna be fricken amazing.

#10 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>217132

I attribute this to my general insanity, as well as a recent concussion addling me even further.

#11 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

liking this idea, tracking to see how he recovers from a case of slashed neck :rainbowlaugh:

#12 · Chapter 1 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Yeah finally a story that involves the person being a diamond dog. Yesh.

#13 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

so fuckin meta

#14 · Chapter 2 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

'Why couldn't you have just thrown me a rapist or something?' Is it bad if this part made me chuckle? I also lol'd at the being literally booted out of the universe thing...

#15 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Lol throwing the fluffy kitten into the river...

#16 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>217342

He had it coming, the adorable bastard was too powerful to let live another day.

#17 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

This is a nice and refreshing thing from human goes to equestria and gets turned into an local creature, love the whole diamond dog thing. Plus Balto<3:yay::heart:

#18 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Sir Buck Apple "Come with me if you want to laugh!" Seriously this story is bucking helarious!:rainbowlaugh: The Discorded boot to the head. The pig gargling mollasses. The part where you immatated different deep voiced movie icons.(Terminator was the best.)  The "how did you know that ?internet" part. I could go on but that would be a little redundant. The action near the end of the 3rd chapter was good to but so far I'm hear for the laughs. Also great Idea to make a fic where the main character is Diamond Dog. Very original.

#19 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

I would have never thought of it- human turned Diamond Dog. Thinking about it though Diamond Dogs in their own right can be Bad-A's if they wanted to be, or if they hand the cognitive ability to be.

Great work, definitely tracking!

#20 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

"Into the river he goes." was THE FUNNIEST LINE IN ALL OF HISTORY!

(To me, at least.)






FROST!

#21 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Lol, Echo, you so silly... looking forward to seeing what comes next :rainbowlaugh:

#22 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Changed my account name, because this is my original OC.

#23 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

my only regret is that i cannot rate this higher than five stars, but anyways a new chapter of Far From the Tree and now this brand new epicness. are you trying to overwelm us with awesomness? because it just might work :pinkiehappy:

#24 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh noes!

I hope echo gets to someday talk again but at least he's being a champ about it now :fluttercry:

I remember having some oral surgery before where I couldn't talk for a weak and that was just plain maddening, I feel his pain...

Also made it impossible to drink alcohol....

#25 · Chapter 2 · 137w, 1d ago · · 1 ·

let me guess the old guy is discord right:rainbowhuh:

#26 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Wait, its possible to change account names?  How? >>218247

#27 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>218401

Just hit the "EDIT ACCOUNT" tab, in-between the tracking and dashboard buttons.  From there, just type in your new user name, and re-use your password or type a new one.

#28 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

I really like this story and i want more:flutterrage:

#29 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>218528

I am a generous author.  Ask and ye shall recieve...  Just give me a day or two, man, I pumped this out in ONE DAY, illustration included!  

#30 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Alrighty! Awesome chapter and plenty of hilarity to be found.:yay:

First:

Echo, I agree with you 100% that diner food is some of the greatest stuff cooked on this little mudball, BUT! It's even better when you actually EAT it.:facehoof:

Second:

I can't believe a character such as yourself missed such a perfect opportunity!:raritydespair:

When Daring asked you what "your mother" fed you, you should have pointed at her while rubbing your belly.

I am so disappointed in you right now.:ajsleepy:

Third:

Might wanna keep an eye on Dr.MacGuyver's handywork, with all the shit (figurative and possibly literal) that shoes get into, an infection could become a problem. Just a little heads-up

Fourth:

Insanity does bestow such nice jackets doesn't it?

I even got mine monogrammed!:raritystarry:

And finally number Banana!

Digging in the dirt, wagging your tail... Dude, better keep a close eye on those canine behaviors. Daring probably wouldn't like it if you start humping her leg.:trollestia:

#31 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

god i wish i was as good at writing as you are...mabey then my stories would get more than a few hundred views. :pinkiesick:

#32 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>218758

I'm now the undisputed master of doggystyle.

#33 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

HE KICKED ME IN THE FACE!

#35 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>218785

Mate, it's not about how well you write, it's about the ideas you write about.  The better and more original the idea, the more attention it receives.  Just look at this story, for example!  Hasn't been out for twelve hours and it's got over 600 views!  And it HASN'T been featured, either.  Good idea gets good publicity.  

#36 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

Ya but grammer and how you add detail to the story is also a major factor in writing. The first chapter in my first story was horrible when it came to grammer, because of that my ratings were low which caused alot of people to not want to read it. I have gotten much better but my work still doesnt even compare to yours. :applejackunsure:

I would use a proofreader but its nearly imposible to find one that doesnt expect to be payed for it. I can understand that, and i wouldnt mind paying if i wasnt already having to pay for college gas and all the other necestities of life.

#37 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

>>218758 Hey maybe he will hump her leg.....:trollestia:  On another note, Discord should really try out as the kicker for a football team who knows how far he can kick the ball if he can punt echo from his home dimension to Equestria...

#39 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 12h ago · · ·

>>218830

You might want to rescind that last bit about not being featured.

#40 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 12h ago · · ·

>>220122

Mate, you've made my day tenfold.

TENFOLD, I SAY!

#42 · Chapter 3 · 137w, 12h ago · · ·

>>217067My step mom: aaaauuuuueeee.. for my love has all but gone... and left me here alonnnneee....

Me:Good enough?

#43 · Chapter 1 · 137w, 12h ago · 1 · ·

"On my first day in Equestria, I had my throat torn out."

THE END :derpytongue2:

#44 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 11h ago · · ·

That Worgen pic is my screen saver :rainbowlaugh:

#45 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 10h ago · · ·

Just a question. Is the old man who sent him to Equestria Discord?

#46 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 10h ago · · ·

The story is surprisingly great. Only thing which bugs me is that incredibly silly worgen pic. Makes me almost want to draw a replacement. Hmm.

#47 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 10h ago · · ·

>>220292

There are surprisingly few pictures of diamond dogs, and my own artistic talent is mediocre at best.  I'd gladly take anything sent to me.

#48 · Chapter 1 · 137w, 10h ago · · ·

This actually addressed almost all the complains I have with normal HiE's! :pinkiegasp:

People seem to use the same cliches over and over again. But to be fair, it's kinda hard if everyone had to be original :rainbowwild:

Like where this is going, will keep reading :pinkiehappy:

#49 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 10h ago · · ·

i rub hamburgers specifically chili burgers over my nipples on a regular basis.

#50 · Chapter 4 · 137w, 9h ago · · ·

This has got the be the most interesting HiE I've read in a long time :pinkiehappy:

While I'd ask if he got to Ponyville at some point, I gotta admit that I have no clue... Both Lyra, Vionna, Derpy and Pipsqueak is in the tags, but not a single one of the mane 6 :rainbowhuh:

This is good though, I love it :pinkiehappy:
