Applejack has taken a job on Earth, and agrees to host the Crusaders for a visit. When an emergency comes up, the fillies are left to take care of themselves.
Oh god North Carolina? I hope they are prepared for hill billy trailer parks and ghettos!
Woah, CMCs on earth. This is going to be interesting.
>>440170440170 Yea, I don't know if you've ever been out here. But, that is such a common misconception it hurts. Seriously. Thats like saying California is only filled with party animals, gay people and druggies.
>>440179440179 I lived there for awhile. Twas a joke on my part, sorry if sounded like stereotyping. Though, never go to the north east part of the state. The stereotypes are mostly true.
>>440182440182 I live in Wake county, so i'll agree with you there.
a universe where the government isnt torturing and experimenting on interdimentional- pony-aliens? sweet. im getting kinda jealous at all the atention the east coast is receiving. i've read fics of ponies going to new jersey, new york city, and now N carolina. someone should write a fic about ponies showing up in the sonoran desert in Arizona... actually, maybe i'll do that.
>>440182440182 Thats where I live ye old asshole
Could be worse. They could be in South Carolina.
>>440422440422 that hurts
I know. Living in South Carolina is a very painful experience.
(Just so you know, I live in SC)
Well say what you want about NC least we've got some good BBQ and all the pork you could ever want... actually that might not be such a selling point for ponies.
>>440538440538 THis is true, "Good to live NC!"
I'd read it.
hey, what is the terrible thing that happened to applejack?
In my mind, this story is set in 1995. I had originally written the event to be the Oklahoma City Bombing, but decided to change it. This is supposed to be a comedy, not a tragedy.
When you wrote Battleships did you ever say to yourself, "this is the perfect starting point for an amazing series!"? With ponies having adventures on earth, in space and now North Carolina, this truly is one of the best series on Fimfiction! There is practically no end to originality!
I noticed a mistake: She was planning to move back to Equestira as soon as her duty assignment at Lejeune was up.
But anyways, am liking this story.
Thanks. My spellcheck pretty much breaks when I'm writing pony stories.
I live in NC! Ima read this neow.
Sounds more like Area 51. That could be the basis for a PoE fic.
This may sound like a stupid question but are you going to have them discover their marks by the time the fic ends?
so do I just thought you were making fun of us and you it's not that bad out here though im moving north
Nah, don't want to break canon that hard.
I'm thinking about writing a "CMC all grown up" story, though
This made me think of what it would be like if the CMCs came to my town of Waynesboro. They would probably get tricked into trying dip and cigarettes.
The word is 'sapient' not sentient. An amoeba is technically sentient.
This is the kind of PoE fic that I like; friendly and mutually beneficial contact between two alien races.
Still, a little technical quibble: when referring to a member of the United States Marine Corps, the word "marine" is capitalized.
I'm loving this series your making here.
I didn't want the sailors mentioned in the same sentence to feel left out
Damn squids can suck it up :P
I have trouble following your fics and haven't read this one yet but, wouldn't the CMC's be older by the present day if it was 'present' Equestria in 1991?
Ehhh, yeah, maybe. There's a reason I didn't put a concrete date on this one.
Granted, maybe that's the reason Applejack was willing to leave them alone.
HOLY CRAP!! I LIVE IN NC!!!
I know, right?
Where in the hell do you get your ideas from?
I sit in front of my computer and stuff happens, man. I wish I could come up with some idea of how to put that into words.
It's the magicks!
GIVE ME MOAR DONUTS AND PONIES NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cutie mark crusader diabetes battlers are go!
Well there's Starbuck's, but I'm not exactly sure if you could consider that competition...
Well, technically Dunkin' sells more coffee than they do donuts, so Starbucks is closer competition than Krispy Kreme.
Yeah, I sit here doing research on donut shops for the purposes of a fanfic involving young ponies.
Auuuughh!! You just HAD to write about donuts, didnt you, you had to. Argentina has absolutely nothing related to donuts here, and it sucks ass!
I refuse to believe you. I think you have three dartboards. One with ponies, one with military and police branches, and one with U.S states.
.... Oh God. I was just joking, but that actually makes a scary amount of sense.
Oh my God, I should DO that!
You know what? You do that, and I'll see if I can't bother a friend of mine who can draw to make a pic of it.
What exactly are AJ and Beth doing? I would guess they're in a secret relationship, but there isn't a Romance tag. Perhaps they are having a gun fight?
"Mmm...Doughnuts." (Homer Simpson Drool)
I have idea.....but I vill not say
Please note the mention of AJ's stallionfriend in the first chapter.
Also note that I'm known for writing plot twists.
>>472286472286 zats vat i thought
>>472286472286 I like where this is going.
Beth must've done something that one time she visited Equestria, huh?
Communist spy!! I knew it!
fucking knew IT!
Pinkie Pie discovers Krispie Kreme.
EVERYTHING EXPLODES. TWICE.
What a TWEEST!
Liked just because it is NC. :3
Read the story, good so far.
I was sort of right. Beth, if it makes you feel any better, people at school sometimes call me ponyfucker (even though I was never in a situation like that involving an animal).
Yay! Ponies in NC! Here's wishing the best of luck to the CMC's adventure in the state from lil' Washington.
Beth could still be a communist spy....
Great so far. Looking forward to more as always. And yes, Scoots, Earth is weird.
So, are they ever going to get really lost? Because right now they're just going in a weird circle. With donuts.
I could go for a donut right now…
Hahaha, General Lee taxi service. Glorious!
Actually article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice states that any servicemember who “engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same sex or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy.”
Obviously it's been modified a bit since the repeal of Don't Ask / Don't Tell, but I'm pretty sure the "TWO LEGS GOOD / FOUR LEGS BAD" bit is still on the books, hahaha. Then again, I suppose the question becomes, "okay then so what's unnatural carnal copulation?"
...Oh god why did I look that up on a government computer; now the S6 guys are going to be giving me funny looks.
>>506266506266 meh, im reading this on a government computer. Luckily its not my CAC tho, so the ITs will think my LPO is a weirdo
Your LPO should learn that CACs are not to be left unattended in computers, ha ha ha.
>>506468506468 youd think he'd have leaned since he now has EqD, FiMFic, and a ponified youtube page permantly on his browser from the last time...
Obviously he's a closeted brony and is just pleased because now he has an excuse.
LPO: "Oh yeah that it's that guy who did it; sucks for me, eh?"
*browses ponies when no one is looking*
LOL this is gonna be fun!
Oh gawd...CMC + donuts + Marines = epic lulz
“Who put the milk in before the cereal…” said Apple Bloom.
“…and then somehow caught it on fire?” finished Sweetie Belle.
“Um, whoops,” chuckled Scootaloo nervously.
“Wow, maybe I am the best qualified,” said Beth.
I LOL'd so hard
What's up with AJ though?
Chapter 4 should answer that question.
Yep Earth be weird
The drill instructor told us, ‘The rain makes you strong! All of you will learn to love
it. Right now, you should be so motivated that your motoboner is hard. Mine is!’.”
“What the…” said Applejack.
“Yeah, I couldn’t figure it out either,” said Beth. “It was a female DI.”
Also...going in circles with donuts...
Doing donuts with donuts...
Yeah, I've been thinking about switching exclusively to comedy. It's easier to write, and people seem to like it at least as much as my drama.
>>507417507417 Nah, a little drama just make ya appreciate the comedy more
Aww it's over?
But I wanted more CMC antics!
There no conflict in this story....
I'm a lazy bum.
Actually, that was a good ending.
He's right, though. There wasn't enough conflict to make a proper story. This is kind of step back from my usual gunfights-and-car-chases stuff.
Well a step-back relaxation story isn't bad. I thought it was still good for a rambling around story.
I'm still shipping AJ with Beth, because I'm bored.
I can't guarante that I would read that story, but I have no problem with you writing and posting it.
I'm still going with Beth is a secret communist spy...
A story doesn't NEED conflict to be good.
I, personally, liked it. Honestly? I found it rather adorable and humorous, and it shows that the CMC aren't as crazy-go-nuts as they USED to be, while showing they're still learning.
But "Strange Bedfellows" featured a MALE human.... which, sad to say, would have made the "pony poker" accusation more likely.
I visit my grandmother in South Carolina every Christmas, It's nice :3
BTW When The people who divided Carolina into two (No idea who they were , Something about the Civil War I think) I can only hope they were thinking,
"The Carolina has been doubled!"
When she said "I night out" I instantaneously remembered the song "One night in Bangkok" Why? I have no idea.
Here's the song, I'm going to bed now.
One Night In Bangkok By: Someone I don't know
Scootaloo burned cereal?
Definitely a good story.
Bethxapplejack, I bet a story about that would be good I'ld definately read it. Especially since it would have a conflict about not only how others would feel about it but how they would too. ~<3
NC Coast reporting. Best place in the world.
I wish the CMC luck. I lived in Charlotte, NC for 8 years. The second I got the chance, I was enthralled to go back to Virginia Beach.
Like Virginia Beach? It will be a major setting for an upcoming story. You should see it in about a month.
>>10999011099901 There is not a single emoticon in the entire world that describes just how stoked that makes me.
I just realized Pegasus ponies could make a FORTUNE doing weather control on Earth.
One time, the kitchen staff at the boy scout camp I work at once burned tomato soup.
Yup, this is the east coast.
