Sometimes, I mash my face against a keyboard, and stories come out. Sometimes, they're even good.
Twilight Sparkle and Trixie get into an argument about everything.
They also go on an adventure, fight monsters and save Equestria, but, you know, that's just a side point.
Has a TV Tropes mention: under Fan Fic. WHAT. EXPLODING WITH JOY NOW.
dis is gud stuff.
>>39076473907647 Glad you like it!
What... just happened?
>>39076823907682 i hop dis gets featured. is gud.
Heh, the second story prompt with these two. They make such a good team.
Silly but enjoyable, with both contributing to the overall "crusade" to bring down the baddie. Neither overshadowed the other (though I'm sure Trixie would argue the point).
>>39083343908334 Thanks for the kind words!
I'm glad that I seem to have gotten the balance between the two down.
Trixie and Twilight arguments seem to write themselves, and they do make a good team, though both of them would deny it.
This was a hilarious read from start to finish. I absolutely loved it. Both characters remained pretty well within their proper characterization, and they kept up their bickering and sniping without really giving any ground. I could easily see them keep doing stuff like this simply for fun (let's face it, Twilight relishes in having somepony to snark at without having to hold back), and Trixie would definitely want to become an alicorn solely to keep their rivalry on an even keel.
Vitriolic Best Friends, anyone?
>>39120073912007 That was what I was going for with this: that Twilight and Trixie have this weird rivalry/friendship thing going on that only they really get. I completely forgot about that trope, though. If I get a mention on the relevant TVTropes page, I will explode with joy.
I'm glad you enjoyed this story!
>>39122703912270 I hope you meant that figuratively, because...
It's funny, really, because I've thought the same thing; in one of my current projects, Twilight and her friends end up depowered while Trixie (independently) has trained herself in the hopes of matching her. Trixie then gets upset that her rival has fallen behind and demands that Twilight regains her strength so they can have a proper rivalry. Twilight gets all mopey because she thought they were friends... until Pinkie points out that for crazy ponies like Trixie, rivalry is friendship.
>>39124233912423 WHAT. WHAT.
A most excellent story with some of the best banter I've ever read! Kudos!
And hey wasn't "Lord Umbra" the main villain from Mighty Orbots?
ps- congrats on the tv tropes mention! hopefully you don't explode and then explode again! I've heard that can happen...
>>40592624059262 I'm glad you liked it!
To be honest, I just made up the most stereotypical villain name I could think of. I have no idea if it's from anything else.
It was an obscure cartoon from the '80s. Uh-oh I think I may have just dated myself
Was looking for hilarious Trixie/Twilight banter, got all that and a comedic adventure.
I love it.
>>40851764085176 I'm glad that you enjoyed it!
The Snarky Adventures of Twilight and Trixie, that was fantastic. I would happily read more about them in this style.
I'll have to take a look at your other stories too.
>>45051264505126 I'm glad you found it enjoyable!
First I have to say: This story is a perfect example of why people need to get the idea that Trixie is an illusionist out of their heads, because it leads to a lot of tired clichés. I could swear I've read the conversation where Trixie is extolling the virtues of some shady historical illusionist so many times it's become an archetype by now.
Apart from that, good read.
Just out of interest, where did twilight learn how to pick locks.
Also, simply because Lord Umbra is bright pink does not mean they can't be scary. Think about pinkie pie and how many scary versions there are of her, even in the show.
ADORABLE...JUST ADORABLE !!!!!!
For some reason, I can't help but see the image of Twilight and Trixie as pony Beavis and Butthead now out of my head
I wonder where Trixie discovered this whole Lord Umbra and his evil plot, anyways.
