OK, that was funny, and a nice bit on deconstruction what it means to live in a town subject to attacks by gigantic star-beasts, invasions by all-devouring multiplying parasprites, and Derpy Hooves.

To be honest, I cannot wait for the My Little Pony episode that deals with the election of a mayor. As with all political debates, it's bound to get nice and ugly really fast.

Brilliant story! Loved the Hitchhiker reference at the end. Great story from start to finish. [insert more glowing praise here.]

#4 · 250w, 4d ago · · ·

This was a work of brilliance...and it was way too short. :pinkiesad2:

#5 · 250w, 3d ago · · ·

This need to be longer!

That image alone makes me want to read this

After reading:  well this has been enjoyable, I don't think I've read a mayor mare story before.

Ponyville is preety.....accident proned huh? Tartarus, dams, derpy, you'd think celestial would've picked a better place lol

Even in Equestria politicians're always cutting library funding first. :twilightangry2:

#8 · 250w, 3h ago · · ·

Brilliantly funny story. "Do you know how awful ‘randomly subject to disaster’ looks to potential homeowners?" was just brilliant! :rainbowlaugh:

I am forced to wonder if Equestria has building and fire codes, and how much of Ponyville is in violation. Much enjoyed.

#10 · 250w, 2h ago · 1 · ·

Seriously, for such a small town, far too much seems to happen to its population that would qualify as "Wrath of the Gods".

#11 · 250w, 2h ago · 1 · ·

It needs a real conclusion but was an entertaining read none the less

#12 · 250w, 2h ago · · ·

It probably won't sound good when Canterlot hears their inspector was grievously injured whilst inspecting. Or killed. Petunias are deadly, you know.:pinkiecrazy:

#13 · 250w, 12m ago · · ·

A good laugh. Thanks. Still, I think that you could get a lot of mileage out of this idea, so I'm kind of disappointed there isn't more. And I love the idea of the Mayor being the main character.

Uh... basically, can I swipe this basic idea of 'Ponyville under inspection, Mayor slowly going insane' from you please? javascript:smilie(':pinkiesad2:');

This is a really good one. The moment where the mayor was waggling her hooves at Twilight in particular got a pretty hearty chuckle out of me.

#15 · 249w, 6d ago · · ·

I love your writing style. You deliver jokes perfectly.

Funny, I liked the contrast between what the mayor was saying and what she was thinking. :rainbowlaugh:

>>418055  Ponyville is Equestria's "South Park".  :trollestia:

#19 · 249w, 3d ago · · ·

Very cute.

#20 · 249w, 1d ago · 2 · ·


Could have been worse.  Could have been a whale. :derpytongue2:

#21 · 248w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

"Are-eye" Are...Eye...R....I....  R.I.


You clever little son of a gun, you

Well, it was quite funny, but I'm sure I didn't catch all the references there. Might be because I'm a foreigner. :pinkiesmile:

Anyway - Mayor Mare sure has it hard. For a backwater town like Ponyville a lot of strange crap happens all the time there. :rainbowlaugh:

#23 · 245w, 2d ago · · ·

That was a laugh :pinkiehappy:

(And the moral of the story is, live somewhere else. ANYWHERE ELSE.)

#24 · 176w, 15h ago · · ·

Well.  That's one way to ace an inspection...

We're not Detrot!

At precisely that moment, a bowl of petunias materialized in the sky. As objects suspended in the air tend to do, it immediately began to fall.

Oh, not again, it thought, shortly before it landed on the head of the Royal Inspector and knocked him out cold.
