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 · 155w, 5d ago · · ·

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

#5 · 155w, 4d 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:

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

#9 · 155w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

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

#10 · 155w, 1d 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 · 155w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

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

#12 · 155w, 23h 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 · 155w, 21h 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 · 155w, 18h 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 · 154w, 4d ago · · ·

Very cute.

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

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

:pinkiegasp:

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 · 150w, 3d ago · · ·

That was a laugh :pinkiehappy:

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

#24 · 81w, 1d ago · · ·

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