    Should anyone else join The God Squad?

    So, I am trying to bank a bunch of chapters during my vacation, that way there isn't a huge lull, and as I am getting near the end of Season 2 and planning out Season 3 I am undecided on the makeup of the God Squad. Naturally Luna, Celestia, Tydal, Cadence, Shining and Chrysalis will remain part of the team. Discord will also be a part of the team full time by the end of Season 2.

    There are some other characters I have already considered about allowing to join the squad but the issue that always arises is how big the team should be. Right now it is a six man/pony/capricorn/changeling team, and Discord makes seven. What should be the limit though? Keep it at the seven? Cut it down (maybe you guys want Discord not to join or would love to see someone booted off... I can't imagine the team without the Core 6 but maybe you'd like it to be a smaller group).  Or maybe you want the roster to continue to grow and have any of the following join:

    Princess Twilight Sparkle: Let her have some mommy and me time with Luna

    Polar Vortex: Tydal's favorite brother AND a character voiced by Alec Baldwin!

    Philomenia: The sarcastic phoenix that only Celestia understands

    Mary Sue: Even though she is one of the Doctor's companions she is a deity...

    Fuzzy Thinker: Yes, add the Dumbledore parody to the team!

    Starswirl the Bearded: He could either be alive or his skull could be part of the team.

    The Evil Muffin: Just make him officially a member.

    Fluffle Puff: Give Chrysalis something to cuddle

    Nyx: Poor thing, I don't think anyone but me remembers her... (looks around awkwardly)

    Let me know what you think of the currently Core 6 line-up, Discord's upcoming joining of the Squad, and who else you'd love to see join the Squad (either full time or for as a recurring member)

    Also, why are none of you making Tydal plushes? He could hunt down the other, weaker, plushes and beat them up!

    Another Non-Pony plot bunny

    As if I didn't have enough unfinished stories sitting about (and I swear I will get back to my Iron Man/Game of Thrones crossover and my Justice League story... I was writing a lot of both of them right before my mom passed and I've found it hard to get motivated on them), I have another plot bunny dancing in my head. I've already written two chapters on my day off and I'll probably get a third done tomorrow. Just wanted to see what you guys thought of this strange combination:

    Indiana Jones and the Abbey of Downton

    Timeline: Just before the start of Series 3 and into Series 3

    Synopsis: After Sibyl marries Branson and Mary becomes engaged to Matthew Crawley the family, fearing that Edith will become desperate and cling to the first bachelor she finds, convinces her to take a trip to America. They had hoped this would allow her some time to breathe so that when she returned they would be better prepared to find her a suitable match. There was no way they could have known that Edith bring back with her a fiancée… a young soon-to-be Doctor of Archeology named Henry ‘Indiana’ Jones Jr. Now two worlds collide as a newly empowered Edith and her fiancée Indy arrive at Downton, ready to throw English society off kilter… and perhaps discover some lost treasures along the way.

    Pairings: Edith/Indiana, Mary/Matthew, Sibyl/Branson, Cora/Robert

    The basic plot would see Edith, now more empowered by having Indy in her life, and Indiana injected into the world of Downton and how this would alter things. And this being Indiana Jones, of course he is going to begin seeking out lost treasures and dangerous artifacts.

    Everybody Wants to Rule the World...

    CLICK HERE AND WAIT FOR LYRICS TO BEGIN BEFORE READING!

    (We see Ponyville. Everything looks normal and peaceful… but there is an eerie calm, like the one that comes before the storm)

    Welcome to your life

    (We pan in, moving past Sweet Apple Acres, Rarity’s Boutique, Sugar Cube Corner… and while looking the same, are too static, too quiet)

    There's no turning back

    (We see the world suddenly flicker, the buildings changing from their normal forms into older stone buildings and huts straight out of the past. it is a strange vision, like a tv flickering between two channels)

    Even while we sleep

    (We see flickers and ghostly images of ponies, capricorns and other beings racing towards each other, clearly in the middle of a war. The phantoms are like wisps of fog, swirling about Ponyville.)

    We will find you

    Acting on your best behavior

    (the sky is now black and full of thunderclouds)

    Turn your back on Mother Nature

    (Everything goes quiet and still again. There is a crack of thunder and the screen goes black)

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    (The camera is now focused on a purple eye)

    It's my own design

    (We pull back to see Faith standing at the prow of the Abundance, looking down at Equestria, confused)

    It's my own remorse

    (Faith looks down and sees a golden coin. He reaches down and picks it up, his head tilted, befuddled)

    Help me to decide

    Help me make the most of freedom

    (He stares at the coin, which bears not the image of Celestia but the face of a strange pony-like figure)

    And of pleasure

    (The coin crumbles into dust in Faith’s hoof)

    Nothing ever lasts forever

    (Faith’s eyes go wide and he slowly begins to turn)

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    (We see the Abundance’s deck explode as columns of flames burst from it. Faith silently yells, racing past the crew towards the helm, reaching for Trixie, who is holding a crying Clockwork… )

    There's a room where the light won't find you

    Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down

    (…only for him to fall through the lower decks, his wings impaled by burning shards of wood. He falls out of the ship, his eyes still staring up in horror as the Abundance burns.)

    When they do, I'll be right behind you

    (Faith lands and looks up, only to see Princess Celestia, wearing grim armor, standing before him.  the silver alicorn looking about in confusion as Celestia steps over him, her stare as if she were looking through him rather than at him.)

    So glad we've almost made it

    (Twilight, Cadence, and Luna join Celestia, looking across a battlefield, Faith trying to get their attention but failing. Their horns glow and the four charge forward towards a massive army in black armor and burning manes.)

    So sad we had to fade it

    (We pan over the battle field until we come face to face with a Qilin, half dragon half pony; it is the being from the coin. He smiles and holds up his clawed hand, fire appearing in it before he silently sends out twin jets of fire through the sky towards the battlefield)

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    (Jets of fire race towards Faith, who shields himself, only for geysers of water to shoot up and stop them. Faith turns back and stares as Lord Tydal races onto the battlefield, letting out a silent roar as he leaps towards the qilin general)

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    (Faith trembles as he witnesses the battle, completely forgotten and ignored. He gripes his head and Twilight turns, snapped out of her battle fury as he screams, black magic bursting from him)

    Everybody wants to rule-

    (Close up on Faith’s eye as it goes dark, coat going pure black)

This story is a sequel to The Many Secret Origins of Scootaloo

When Scootaloo's attempt at flying causes her to crash into Twilight's lab, it sets off a chain reaction that causes Twilight to disappear, leaves the library in shambles and Scootaloo knocked out. A wave of purple energy rips through Equestria, leaving all to wonder 'great, what now?'

When Scootaloo awakens, she learns from the Bureau of Undoing Trouble from Twilight Sparkle that this world's Twilight is gone... and in her place are dozens of Twilights from different dimensions, tearing across the land. Worse, Nightfall Eclipse, a wicked Twilight from the antimatter universe, is assembling other bad Twilights to form The League of Evil Twilights, who seek to take over Equestria.

Now gifted with the ability to track down these Twilights, thanks to the explosion, Scootaloo will seek out these visitors from other universes in the hopes of sending them home and getting the real Twilight back.

Crisis of Infinite Twilights: Truth, Dare or Drink, the official spin-off, can be found here

And so it begins.

This story all came about from me thinking about alternate realities. We already have had a few... the Equestria Girl's reality, the Cross and Arrow reality... but I began to think of more and more of them and knew that it could be quite a fun fic. Then, when I hit upon the idea of turning the tables and having Scootaloo be the star, dealing with these alternate Twilights... well, it was too good to resist.

Next chapter will be called Twiley and give us some ideas on what has happened

#2 · 56w, 3d ago · 27 · · Princess Twilight ·

....the BUTTS Agency?

Ok, I have to read this....

#3 · 56w, 3d ago · 8 · · Princess Twilight ·

The plot kinda reminds me of the sweetie chronicles...

#4 · 56w, 3d ago · 5 · · Princess Twilight ·

Looking forward to this story. The Many Secret Origins of Scootaloo was probably my favorite of your stories.

I'm curious as to which alternate realities you're planning on using. Do you plan to use Twilight's from other people stories, ie. Lunaverse or Past Sins Twilight?

#5 · 56w, 3d ago · 5 · · Princess Twilight ·

Oh crap. Scoots, I think you're a bit screwed...

#6 · 56w, 3d ago · 1 · · Princess Twilight ·

Oh. My. YES!

It is here, at last. :yay:

Write on,

Legion

#7 · 56w, 3d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

>>3235137

There is a VERY slight resemblance, but you will see VERY shortly that it is wildly different, especially when the Twilights begin interacting with each other.

>>3235213

I will only confirm that Snowblind's Twilight will appear in this story

#8 · 56w, 3d ago · 8 · · Princess Twilight ·

This is like the opposite concept of TSC with the same premise. Interesting...

Paint from the TARDIS?  ...What'd she do, blow up a galaxy just to scratch it?

#11 · 56w, 2d ago · 4 · · Princess Twilight ·

"No Rainbow… no… I don't wanna go to the Rainbow Factory," Scootaloo mumbled.

A Rainbow Factory reference instead of a Cupcakes reference? You are a good person.

Your passages for each Element Bearer's childhood princess dream was nice to read. Following Applejack's sad reminiscences with Fluttershy's hilarious reaction reminded me of something Joss Whedon does: interjecting a sad or serious moment with humor (or cut off a good moment with something shocking and sobering).

#12 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Does Marv Wolfman get a royalty check for this? :trollestia:

#13 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Ok, for some reason, I read the title, and all I could think of was the Crisis on Infinite Earths miniseries of DC Comics that came out years ago...

Still, from the description, it does look interesting

#14 · 56w, 2d ago · 1 · · Princess Twilight ·

This will be interesting, but that remains to be seen. I shall track this... FOR NOW...

#15 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

So the first Twilight we meet is Filly Twilight. You just couldn't resist killing us with cuteness could you? :twilightsmile:

I look forward to seeing just how many different Twilights come out of this. :eeyup:

#16 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

This is going to be good. Will you be using any Twilight's from other stories?

#17 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

i got ya covered scoots,: "crap."

this... is gonna be good:pinkiehappy:

#18 · 56w, 2d ago · 3 · · Princess Twilight ·

First it was a Crisis of Infinite Pinkies... Now it's a Crisis of Infinite Twilights. Celestia help us if there's a crisis of infinite Derpys.

#19 · 56w, 2d ago · 2 · · Princess Twilight ·

Fourth paragraph in, the description of filly Rarity and her father nearly killed me. Oh god my heart!

And filly Dash two paragraphs later caused me to involuntarily salute.

#20 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

If this is anything like "Secret Origins", then I know this is going to be amazing. :scootangel:

#21 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Well, there are always the multitude of Twilight clones in that tumbling place.

#22 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Looks like it's up to the BUTTS to handle this.

#23 · 56w, 2d ago · 3 · · Princess Twilight ·

She dreamed of using her station not as a ruler but as an innovator, changing the lives of her subjects for the better through her experiments.

I misread that as "stallion" and made the sentence really awkward.

#24 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Well, I'm thoroughly amused already. Fav'd to follow, and instant thumbs-up for the song! :rainbowlaugh:

#25 · 56w, 2d ago · 1 · · Princess Twilight ·

Scootaloo is so gonna get banished.:derpyderp1:

Or turned to stone.:derpyderp2:

Or turned to stone and banished to a place where ponies eat stone.:derpytongue2:

#26 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Hehe, BUTTS. :twilightblush: I´m so reading this later.

#27 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

There were SO many little things in this that just had be saying "yes" over and over, and a few of those actually caused me to giggle-snort. I do not giggle-snort. ever. But you made me do it. :pinkiegasp:

End all? I love this. Please please please let this be one of those fics that updates 10 times a week! :pinkiehappy:

#28 · 56w, 2d ago · 3 · · Princess Twilight ·

So let me get this straight. The Cutie Mark Crusaders summoned DARKSEID?

:flutterrage: How the hell did Equestria survive the Self-proclaimed GOD OF EVIL?

........ Let's see how this fic turns out, I expect some more ridiculious Shennigans :pinkiecrazy:

#29 · 56w, 2d ago · 1 · · Princess Twilight ·

Am I the only one the notices that the title is a clear homage to "Crisis of Infinite Pinkies" by Skirts.  I thought it was obvious, but no one has said it yet, so maybe I'm wrong.

#30 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

>>3236091 Nope. Both are a reference of Crisis of Infinite Earths, a DC universe thing/

#31 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

>>3235504

...For as much a good person as you can be for referencing a gorefic.

TDR
#32 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

So far so good. and a musical number too, i love musical numbers.:pinkiecrazy:

#33 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

>>3235520 same  :facehoof: doesn't help that I re-read the mini series last night

#34 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

Suddenly I saw some bold letters in the description and then I saw it was the BUTTS agency.

How did you come up with that one? :rainbowlaugh:

#35 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

I am sad that Antimonitor!Twilight's group is not called Every Villain Is Lemons. Because then we could have BUTTS vs EVIL! :pinkiecrazy:

#36 · 56w, 2d ago · 2 · · Princess Twilight ·

>>3235565

I have already designed 24 different Twilights that will appear and have at least a chapter dedicated to themselves.

#37 · 56w, 2d ago · 2 · · Princess Twilight ·

Dont tell me.

We all went on reading this because one of the reasons was BUTTS.

>>3235067 I wonder if you're going to make your Twilight Sparkle from your story, come out and just have fun with that. certainly would be entertaining. :twilightsheepish:

Gentle Breeze guide your path, and a warm smile welcome you home. :twilightsmile:

#41 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

This story is very promising. The description is well-written, quite thorough without dragging on what's unnecessary, and pretty funny. The musical number was good as well.

There are some typos though, which I'll point out later. For now I'll mention the lines I liked most;

'If one had a mind-reading machine (either built or stolen from Princess Luna's secret workshop),'

'Rarity had spent the next year happily trotting around her house, holding court with her stuffed animals while her father had played the part of faithful knight whenever his little filly asked him too. When Sweetie Belle had begged for a crown of her own Rarity had held a special ceremony to induct the newest little princess into the fold,'

'(once she'd learned what a guillotine was, however, she'd let out a scream and had nightmares for a week),'

'(it was only years later that she had learned that one or two of her crayon drawings had been done on scrolls brought before Celestia; the greatest insult the Princess could think of for worthless proposals was to hand them off to Twilight to use while forcing their writer to watch),'

'She saw Equestria as a grand invention that remained unfinished, waiting for the next brilliant mind to improve upon the design,'

'Groundquake, go get another case of guinea pigs! And a mop to clean up after they explode!,'

'Turns out that the only pony who used the library was Twilight (and Rainbow Dash but once she'd learned that Fluttershy was the author of Daring Do she simply had the buttercream mare send her advanced copies),'

'He was dressed in his standard 'Twilight is Experimenting' gear: a football helmet, hockey pads, insolated oven mitts and a jock strap with cup,'

'and that one time you tried that chant the Cutie Mark Crusaders used to summon that Old God,'

'Nothing here is dangerous."

"By itself," Spike said, edging away from her. "But I am pretty sure you shouldn't be performing five experiments at once!",'

'After several ponies had point out that Twilight had kinda committed murder 30 times over, the newly minted princess had decided to see if this were the case and test the magic within the pool,'

'which Twilight had gotten by buttering up Fluttershy (not literally though, much to the sadness of stallions everywhere),'

'Cadence and Chrysalis controlled abstract powers (love and drama, to be precise),'

'their adopted father, Lord Tydal of the capricorns,'

'"...I'm going to hide in the basement, ok?",'

'"No guts, no glory!"

"You go for this glory and ya won't have guts!" Applebloom pleaded. "They'll all be on the ground!",'

'"Every time you try one of these big stunts they fail quicker than Granny's girdle after a big dinner!",'

'raw anarchy spilled out, thrashing about the library like a manticore with the trots,'

'the real world tugging her from her dream,'

'The good news was that the library was still standing. The bad news was that nothing INSIDE the library was standing,'

'puddles of what Scootaloo prayed was pudding staining the floorboards'

and

'"I am so getting banished... or turned to stone... or turned to stone and then banished to someplace where the ponies eat stones..."'

Here are the typos I found;

'Buerau' should be 'Bureau,'

'flux capcitator' should be 'flux capacitor,'

'afteral' in 'they didn’t want to be decapitated, afteral,' should be 'after all'

and

'Darksied' should be 'Darkseid.'

And I'm not sure if it's a mistake, but Fluttershy refers to Rainbow Dash as 'her' Rainbow Dash in the eighth paragraph.

#42 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

This is pretty good. Had little doubt that it would be. I like the concept, I can't wait to see where you take it. It most certainly isn't bad that's for sure.

Looking forward to seeing all of the many Twilights.

#43 · 56w, 2d ago · 3 · · Princess Twilight ·

Awww yeah. I've been looking forward to this for a while now, and the first chapter looks like it's off to a good start. :twilightsmile: Right away, the impression I got was that the narrative is a little more... let's say 'stable' than The God Squad, and more in the style of The Many Secret Origins of Scootaloo. Plenty of time for the boulder of wackiness to start rolling down the hill toward the orphanage as it goes, and also causing me to think that your version of the pantheon are actually Lovecraftian beings who project an aura of insanity around them.

Even Celestia.

ESPECIALLY CELESTIA. :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

Which means that Discord, to quote the Joker, is just ahead of the curve.

>>3235292

I will only confirm that Snowblind's Twilight will appear in this story

Gotta admit, this fillls me with both pride and stomach-butterflies, even though the concept is originally based on one of yours to begin with. :twilightsheepish: Even though they're still incomplete, between Snowblind, Lunar Eclipse: The Rock Opera (shameless plug, ahoy!) and the messages between us, I hope I defined her character well enough for you to use.

>>3235908

Kinky. Maybe she's still got a thing going on with Hairy Grabber. :rainbowwild:

Loving it, and some fantastic lines:

lest they face the guillotine (once she'd learned what a guillotine was, however, she'd let out a scream and had nightmares for a week).
:fluttercry:

once she'd learned that Fluttershy was the author of Daring Do she simply had the buttercream mare send her advanced copies
:rainbowhuh::yay:

which Twilight had gotten by buttering up Fluttershy (not literally though, much to the sadness of stallions everywhere)

Is it wrong of me to fave and upvote this fic before I read it, because I trusted the author this much?

>>3236998

Only if you don't have evidence that what they've written will be good.

I've read the summary; that's evidence enough for me

#49 · 56w, 2d ago · · · Princess Twilight ·

I like it!

This is my type of humor (I love references) and I love how you write the CMC, it feels like them but is somehow more entertaining than watching them in the show.

Very minor technical nit-pik

"Muffin Day is to a religious holiday!"

I'm pretty sure this should be "too".

Other than that, I'm looking forward to more.
