    "The My Little Caboose Halloween Special!" Has Begun!

    It's Spookyween, you guys, and that means it's time for the My Little Caboose Halloween Special! There are currently 5 chapters clocking in at 11k words, and the exiting conclusion will be released by the end of tonight. The reason that it isn't written yet doesn't have anything to do with wanting to cram in another game or two of the Evolve Alpha before writing it or anything, though, so don't even think that. So beware, because the story is certainly spooky!

    The password is "wdihtbb"!

    (Acronym for "Why did it have to be bats?")

    Long Time No See (RvB S12 Ep11 Spoilers) [If You Haven't Seen it, Don't Read]

    I've decided for the rest of the season I am going to do little recaps and afterthoughts of episodes. As such, like it states in the title, there will obviously be spoilers in the blog, so if you haven't seen the episode you should probably hop over there before you see any spoilers. I will also probably mention things that work out in my favor (two are already in this one), as well as things that I might try to implement in my own way in the fic. But enough about that, here's quick little recaps and notes.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Slow Down Time:

    In Halo, Cortana mentioned how one second to humans was a super long time to AI, and I'm glad they utilized it in a cool way in this. Eta and Iota, silent as always, jumping into the gun to make it more accurate was really cool, as was Theta suggesting they use the door as cover, I hope that they use this more and we really get to see Epsilon being used on the battlefield usefully (AKA without a weapon),

    Fragmented Memories:

    Well, it's official that Epsilon can recall all the other personalities, and he does not seem to really "control" them, making them essentially back. Take that those two or three people that messaged me/commented on my fics trying to say that they were all gone and he only had a clip of Delta in his head (when he talked to Carolina), the return of the fragments in MLC is totally justified and not inaccurate. I also have to mention that Theta, as long as he is with his AI brothers, is not nervous/scared at all. I also had a few people commenting that Theta wasn't as shy as he was when we first met him, so him being slightly more comfortable (mostly only around the CMC) is also justified. Really wish Sigma talked, though, but I can only assume that Sir Frodo might be difficult to get a hold of.

    Carolina's Helmet:

    Glad they finally "explained" where she got the new helmet. It was bothering me slightly that she had a new one (yes, I know there isn't a Rogue helmet in Halo 4 so she had to switch for that reason, but still. Even if it WAS just a simple "helmet is shot, just grab that one that you punched off".

    Overall it was a good episode. We got to see the good ol' fragments again, and I hope it won't be the last. I can imagine RvB doing something like what I did and Epsilon "remembering" the fragments. Would be nice to get the good old Doc'Malley combo once again.

    Holy Fuck, That Last Episode

    I mean, I pretty much knew what what was going to happen, but I'll keep the spoilers out of the blog post itself. Like, the buildup to the episode, the execution of the speeches, and the ending were just perfect. By far the best episode of season 11/12 to date. Be warned, though, because the comments most likely will have some in them.

    Still really hope the female Doctor ends up being Sister.

    Anyone Still Here?

    I mean, I have 1,300 followers, but I wonder how many of them never come on anymore/have just lost interest and forgotten about me...

    Anywho, hello to everyone who is still here!

    Sorry I haven't been on lately, been doing a bunch of shit IRL. Like moving to a different city with a buddy, dealing with shitty roommates, moving BACK home, planning for the future and the like. Haven't had much spare time, and what spare time I did have I didn't want to do jack shit besides smoke it up and sleep. Plus writing was getting harder for me to do what with me not wanting to reuse too many jokes (and there are only so many I can do without them being the same), without repeating similar stories (again, pretty difficult to do) and whatnot. Plus doing my own ACTUAL stories instead of fanfiction. I probably will never return to my one chapter every day/every other day, but I'm going to try and finish MLCII. I know I keep saying that, and I keep not delivering, but I'll keep trying. I hate leaving it unfinished and I'll try to get it done by next March. It'll probably be an open ending so people can write their own fanfictions about the gang using it as one of those "verse" things.

    Also, as for MLP itself, I've seen all of season 1 + 2, only seen about 5 episodes of season 3 and only one of season 4. That might have something to do with the lack of inspiration and creative juices, but during season 3 the game REALLY started to show its whole doing the "new dress to buy for your pony doll in real life every episode" thing and that really turned me off the show. (Still watch every RvB and ZP tho. Can never get enuf of dose.) But enough about that. Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth for, like, the ninety-gazillionth time. I'm back and I'ma start writing again. Won't be at the same speed as MLCI or the first 50 chapters of MLCII, but it'll at least be one chapter a week. I'll aim for 2 or 3, but no promises what with life and everything being a real creative downer.

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw is a video game reviewer from Australia. What happens when he plays a video game so girlish that it freezes his computer? Naturally, he hits it to make it work. Only him hitting it did not fix his problem, but rather it introduced a new one. The instant he hit his computer, he was propelled backwards into an oddly colorful world. But he's not going to let being in a different world stop him from doing his job. Now it's time to step up his reviewing skills for his greatest review ever: Equestria.

Warning: This fic may contain humor most find snide, snarky and sarcastic, and if you don't like it, bugger off.

OH GOD, SO MUCH YES

Definitely tracking this for later! :pinkiehappy:

What. WHAT. WHAT?! My mind is full of... I don't even... WHAT?!

ALL OF MY THUMBS UP!!!

Just for the idea.

going into the read later section for now.

Also, did you actually use punctuation? It would be more fun without it.

Oh my god.....just...MORE.

You saw this idea on Hiveminds profile?

Nice one Hivemind, you magnificent bastard.

Cheers

~iraqlobstah

interesting.......:trixieshiftright: i will track this.....

>>400442

No I went on his profile and saw that he liked ZP so I came up with the idea and he seemed to like it. :rainbowlaugh:

Suffice to say I would not have had the idea had I not went on his profile, so I would say we both share in this honor.

>>400443

Thank ya kindly :rainbowkiss:

I wonder what Yahtzee would think of this? :trollestia: I'll have to go to the mana bar and ask.

You need to send him the link to this. My guess is he'll laugh his ass off, then tear you a new one to keep up his standard of brutality :rainbowlaugh:

>>400460

That would be the funniest shit ever. He would probably want me dead.

Yeah I would except I'd probably get my ass kicked out of their and I'd rather not be shunned from the coolest bar ever.

About time all you tossers stopped faffing about and wrote this!

>>400471

Psh, if Yahtzee ended up liking it he would make the bar 20% cooler.

Literally. He would turn the thermostat down so he would freeze himself and everyone in the bar so he would die.

>>400478

They probably didn't think of it because it sounds like a terrible idea.

Which it still is.

...For the love of all that is holy, give us more.

Well, nothing is never safe to be crossover with MLP. Keep up the good work:yay:

Interesting. I'll read later.

Now we just need Yahtzee to review the fanfiction, and the cycle will be complete.

>>400502 You're right, he would. He really would. He might have to kill everyone so there would be no witnesses :pinkiehappy:

As to it being a bad idea, he's the perfect candidate for ponification. Surly, snarky, downright brutal, but hilariously so. I can't imagine how much fun you're going to have writing this :pinkiehappy: Personally, I can't wait to see his reaction to Princess Celestia. "Oooh look at the big shiny pony! Your hair looks like it's going to attack something. Oh? You raise the sun? NOT BLOODY LIKELY! You fail science forever!"

Well that was an interesting read. Very funny. :rainbowlaugh:

>>400525 funniest comment ever. ' Oh? You raise the sun? NOT BLOODY LIKELY!' Definitely going to quote that.

And one more thing. I am going to take the train to the city and bust my way into the mana bar. Oh wait he's only there on Thursdays.

>>400550>>400525

Funnily enough I had the exact thought of him saying that too :rainbowkiss:

>>400564 I can't wait for the next chapter. It'll be hilarious. I for one can see him getting into a big argument with Applejack.

>>400572

As I am writing he is already criticising her. :rainbowkiss:

The next chapter: Yahtzee Reviews - The Mane 6

I'm guessing people just thumbs this story up based on the concept alone.

Oh this should be good. One of the most unlikely crossovers turns out to be one of the funniest things I've read.

>>400589

Yeah, but I'm hoping they'll stay for the content. :raritywink:

You have now managed to make two of my favorite fics out of absolutely impossible concepts. Both this and Blue Is Magic seem completely unwritable (Haven't read hitchhikers yet, but I can only assume it's equally awesome and improbable), yet somehow not only have you written them, they manage to stay in character the entire damn time without taking a hammer to continuity. You get 5 mustaches from me :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

My Mind When Seeing the Title: :pinkiegasp:

My Mind When Reading the Description: :twilightoops:

My Mind When Finishing the Chapter: :rainbowlaugh:

That amount of cynicism is unhealthy for Equestria.

Author: "Are you ready for the next chapter?"

Me: "Ready? Ready...DOESN'T EVEN! FUCKING! DESCRIBE IT!"

SHIT JUST GOT FUCKING REAL!!!

Stay frosty!

~Hazard~

20 likes in an hour on a story that just sounds like a terrible idea, I wonder if that is some sort of record? :rainbowlaugh:

Gem

Great humour and it looks like it should be a fun ride! :rainbowlaugh: *Tracked*

Ok, I'm saying this not only as a big fan of Zero Punctuation, but also as a regular on the Escapist its self. I approve. I know you were just dieing for my approval and to know that I wish to read more. Seriously though, I could actually see Yahtzee saying and doing all of those things which in itself made it entertaining to me.  

My thought process when I saw this:

:pinkiegasp: :twilightangry2:

:trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftleft:

*leaves then reenters with wiffle bat in hand*

I'll read this sometime later (you bastard). I like how you suggested this idea to me sometime ago, but I'll let you take the fame of the idea :scootangel:

>>400452

Mind if I take a teensy bit of credit? :scootangel:

>>400745>>400754

Sorry about that. :twilightsheepish:

I was watching ZP and I was like 'I want to start a new fic anyways so I might as well do this one'.

I already did credit you in the description though. :yay:

This is quite good, but something that's been bothering me is that you're like Yahtzee; you can't tell if you should use an asterisk.  Throughout your story you consistently fail to use the possessive apostrophe.  For example, "Yahtzees" should be "Yahtzee's".

So....who here read this in Yahtzee's voice? :applejackunsure:

>>400769

I know, that and comma placement are my main problems. (I know when to use them but always just ignore them for some reason)

I'll fix it after I finish my next chapter.

>>400589 Hell knows i did!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

CONTINUE. FOR THE LOVE OF LUNA, WOONA, AND NIGHTMARE MOON CONTINUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!, YOUR KING DEMAAAAAANNNNNDDDDDDSSSSS IT!

i mean seriously, when i read the description it almost seemed unreadable. you deserve all the internets ever made, thought of, or given for not only proving your readers wrong, but also combining two of the greatest things ever made.

here are some pinkie's, has them.:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

>>400804 Careful. Too much Pinkie at once can be deadly. You'll might die with the case of smiles.
