"It's called 'Shh'," said Fluttershy. "It's a game about who can be quiet the longest. Sound fun? I'm the world champion."

Fluttershy is not a pony who makes things up. She really is the world champion of "Shh," or The Quiet Game. And now it's time for her to defend her crown, with Twilight Sparkle and Rarity along for the ride.

This is perfect on so many levels.

#2 · 174w, 2d ago · 5 · ·

Six thousand words for being quiet? COOLIO

This is what is called god in a nutshell

#4 · 174w, 2d ago · 3 · ·

Amazing.

Shh, the game, brought to life.

Damn, now I want to see a videogame of this.

#5 · 174w, 2d ago · 2 · ·

that was amazing, you caught the spirit the the show and its world perfectly.i could honestly see that almost word for word as a real episode. it just has this weird insanity to it, its just perfect.

#6 · 174w, 2d ago · · ·

The question I have to ask, when was the church mouse disqualified? :pinkiehappy:

#7 · 174w, 2d ago · · ·

Hi! Love it! 5/5 yays :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay:

:yay:Shhhhh...your all being to lound with your comments.

#11 · 174w, 19h ago · · ·

I was hoping for some weird friendship report at the end but other than that it was awesome.

#12 · 174w, 16h ago · 1 · ·

I'll keep it brief. It was... nice.

#13 · 174w, 15h ago · · ·

This is Prachett levels of awesome and snark.  I loved it.

#14 · 174w, 15h ago · · ·

This is hilarious. I swear it took far longer than it should have to get through it because I was laughing waaaaaaaay too hard for my own good...

In short, I lost the (quiet) game...

:yay: All my stars!

#15 · 174w, 15h ago · 2 · ·

I loved the announcers, mostly because I imagined them with stereotypical golfcaster voices.

#16 · 174w, 15h ago · 2 · ·

Loved it.  Especially Shy Sparrow.  That was a stroke of genius.

#17 · 174w, 15h ago · · ·

:yay:I liked it.

#18 · 174w, 15h ago · · ·

Absolutely hilarious! Excellent story!

#19 · 174w, 14h ago · · ·

THIS WAS AWESOME.

#20 · 174w, 14h ago · · ·

(mumbling) Incredible. She actually managed to beat a dried skeleton at being quiet & still. That alone is probably enough to get her in the record books.

#21 · 174w, 14h ago · · ·

:twilightsmile: Great job, as always Cold!

#22 · 174w, 14h ago · · ·

Wow, this was an incredibly story. Absolutely hilarious from start to finish.

#23 · 174w, 14h ago · 1 · ·

She beat ... a skeleton. I'll restate that - she beat the inanimate remains of a pony. At being quiet. And then she beat Angel Bunny - the ninja rabbit. Actually, no, there are ninja that make more noise than that rabbit (admittedly, she did make use of his achilles heel, but my point still stands).

More importantly, though - you wrote a fic based on a contest about being quiet. And you wrote it well.

I am impressed.

#25 · 174w, 13h ago · · ·

Lucky it was Angel Bunny at the end..had it been an animal from the Grand Galloping Gala, poor Fluttershy would have lost :flutterrage:"YOU WILL LOVE ME!"

#26 · 174w, 13h ago · · ·

"Nightmare Moon"... I mean, seriously ?

#27 · 174w, 13h ago · · ·

Loved it! :pinkiehappy:

Oh well, yes, alright, forget me :D

#29 · 174w, 13h ago · · ·

Someone actually wrote my idea? lol.

#30 · 174w, 12h ago · · ·

>>22605 lawl, by the way, you should totally do some kind of secret pony level in Diablo 3.

#31 · 174w, 12h ago · · ·

Holy hell! You wrote the Cutie Mark Conspiracy! aww man, no wonder I loved this story so damn much. It is so weirdly engaging.

Much like the show itself, I can't quite explain just why I like it, just that its really, really good! This could be an episode. A really good episode. I'm just imagining the visuals and they lend themselves well to comedy.

Awesome work CIG, just funny and giggle inducing. (it was really hard to explain to my dad sitting next to me on the couch why I couldn't stop laughing when I started reading the skeleton scene. that was so perfectly written, so clever... just... god was that funny)

That was hilarious.  And Shy Sparrow . . . Oh my God, how I laughed.

Can't help but feel bad for Rarity, though.  Poor girl.

Altogether, it was awesome.

#34 · 174w, 11h ago · · ·

This is just amazing.  I love the idea of the quiet game being a contact sport.  Way to take a line and make it even more epic than it was originally.  I was actually waiting for Big Macintosh to show up, he's so quiet as well.  

I loved the writing in this and it was very enjoyable!  Thank you for writing it.

#35 · 174w, 11h ago · · ·

This deserves to be animated, post haste!

#36 · 174w, 11h ago · · ·

You are a writing genius.

Hilarious.  And perfectly in-character for the show.

Extremely well-done.

:yay:

#37 · 174w, 11h ago · · ·

I'm more or less how twilight was thinking this is kind of pointless.

#38 · 174w, 10h ago · · ·

A very enjoyable story. But I think the skeleton part, as hilarious as it was, felt off If you aimed for the style of the show (black humor, duh).

#39 · 174w, 10h ago · · ·

I almost wanted to die when they brought out the skeleton, I still can't believe that Fluttershy won.

#41 · 174w, 53m ago · · ·

genius in the form of words...

#42 · 173w, 6d ago · · ·

So perfectly executed in the simplicity of its idea. Well doe, CiG! Have all my yays :yay:

#44 · 173w, 6d ago · · ·

>>22595 Well, it was Luna's strategy, and it might have worked on a lesser pony.

Over all, I give this story a :yay:

#45 · 173w, 6d ago · · ·

My gut hurts.

#46 · 173w, 6d ago · · ·

Absolutely loved it.

#47 · 173w, 6d ago · · ·

:flutterrage:HHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHH

:flutterrage:


yay

#48 · 173w, 5d ago · · ·

Loved it. I wish there were more fics like this one. Everyone just keeps making crossovers and weird romances.

#49 · 173w, 2d ago · · ·

This was so funny, i loved it! Its amazing that you took the quiet game and turned it into a story, with tension. That, my friend, is talent.

#50 · 173w, 2d ago · · ·

yay... if that's ok with you... :fluttershyouch:
