It is the summer of 2020. The popular TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" has finished its eighth, and what appears to be final, season. In the wake of increasingly violent attacks by an extremist Internet-based terrorist group, the founders of the popular pony site, Equestria Daily, decide enough is enough. Bronies from all over the world have gathered in a small, abandoned industrial park in the run-down outskirts of Chicago to find the culmination of their dreams: Equestria. Through the wonders of science, they flee Earth for a land of magic, mystery and secrets. They will be weighed, they will be measured... will they be found wanting or will their dreams come true?

Story Idea inspired by a chapter in Shipping and Handling by PegasusRescueBrigade.

Kinda deserves to go onto the top of the site :rainbowlaugh:

#9 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I hope this 8 seasons thingie willactually happen..... Id rather see 8 seasons of Friendship is Magic over a new MLP series which may go back to the SUPPOSEDLY bad quality of gens 1 to 3.5 (I cant know as I didnt watch those ones)

This is too much fun! And to think it just kinda fell out of my head today. You guys are the best. I'll be sure to continue it:pinkiehappy:

you all deserve all of my :moustache: all of it!

#11 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>461975 Just keep on writing brony! It's what we do :rainbowlaugh:

#12 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Interesting.

#13 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Only eight seasons? That's it? There is bound to be at least 15 . . . and then a reboot.

Hmmm I will read and track this (because I brok my ankle and I need some fics to occupy me)

#14 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Inb4 Brony international guard reference.

I like the idea of a crusade thing going on, that was a very lucrative time for history in the wold of fiction and whatnot (see: Templars) but the only reason I did not like those times was the stupid amount of people that refused to even lie about their religious nature to survive. Or am I missing the point?

Aherm, idiotic ranting aside I shall read this.

#15 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

8 seasons must be a thing for writers setting their fics in the future.

#16 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462003

Reaction 15 much? :trixieshiftright:

As for the fic, love it. :pinkiehappy: Or, love the idea of it.

I shall read immediately!

#17 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

You sir have gotten my attention, I like what I see in this story and can't wait for more! :moustache: approves

#18 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Give me another chapter.

RIGHT NOW:flutterrage:

FLURRSHY COMMANDS YOU!!:flutterrage::flutterrage:

If thats ok with you that is... :fluttershyouch:

#20 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm not sure whether to be happy about being able to go to Equestria or to be sad about basically getting banished from Earth by haters. :applejackconfused:

Eh, I'll go with happy.

#21 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462096 I've been looking for that .gif for a while now. Thank you. As for the story, interesting.

#22 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I love it! only the best stories make me shudder, so much is yet to be done and can be done with such a great plot and start to what I Think will be a fabulous story.

#23 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I've seen a lot of fics on this site and if this one doesn't make it to the top then we might have a problem. If you need any advice or help just contact any fellow brony.

*modestly sips at a can of root beer*

"The air inside ionized and the distinctive smell of ozone filled the building."

Hurk?!? *spews soda* PPPPPPPPPPPHHTTTTTT!!!

*cough* *cough* OZONE?!? O₃ is a poisonous gas!!

~~~~~~

That all said I LOVE THIS!! Great ideas do come in the spur of the moment! Originality is the best policy!

>Post new story

>Say it's a side project until your other story is done, and will continue if it's popular

>New story has over 5x the amount of likes as your other story in an hour

lawl

I am intrigued by this concept, and shall be watching this.

EDIT: and featured to boot =P

#26 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Well, look at that.

I just happened to be glancing down the front page and noticed something mentioning my fic, Shipping and Handling.

To be perfectly fair, I didn't make up the Portal to Equestria thing, everything I used concerning EQD in chapter 10 is pre-existing "Equestria Daily lore" invented by Seth and Cereal.

Here's Cereal Velocity's actual video from "Equestrian Innovation's Portal to Equestria Project".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvTRKmjVUWY

Presumably, the portal from that clip got working well enough to send Seth to Equestria before shutting down again.

#27 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>461975 So, are they leaving because they are hated, or is there a real life, violent backlash that forces bronies into hiding? Other than being confused by that, great fiction!

#28 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

So "Conversion Bureau" meets "Stargate" meets the EqD-Staff? Not oooverly original but I like it. [+1 thumb]

Only thing that makes me wonder: If there is a Anti-Brony-Movement, I'd make sure they never ever, ever, ever, ever find the GATE. Some dead-mans-hand device that destroys the ring, burns out the drives that had the program and the space-time coordinates for equestria and then fillsthe sub-basements with cement. Just to be sure, you know.:twilightsheepish:

A "Goodbye and thanks for all the apples" would have been classy as well.:raritywink:

#29 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>461986

LOL in the face of Snape, how could I?

>>462003

Wow, you hit it on the nose there dude. That is the underlying message I guess, don't let go of what is really important and good. To me, that's what this community is all about.

>>462016

yeah, 8 seasons does seem to be kind of a thing...I rolled with it:pinkiehappy:

>>462114

I'm with yah. I've thought more about what I wrote, I have to do this sometimes for I write good ideas way faster than I think them, and I would agree that it would be a bittersweet departure. You know you are going to a better place but it sucks to leave everything you know behind.

>>462136

Will do.

This is an amazing turn out guys. I didn't think this would get so much attention, seeing as how 'bronies go to equestria' is quite the popular strand to go on. I was half expecting "cliched plot is cliched" but got all of this instead. It gives me this warm glowey feeling inside...I like it:pinkiehappy:

#30 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Won't deny the fact that this is by far one of the most interesting works I've read. You're doing some grand work.

Good luck on the story, my friend.

#31 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

I came expecting a half-baked idea.  Congratulations, it's fully baked.  I expect to see more on my desk this time next week. :pinkiehappy:

#32 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462181

really?! that's cool, I saw it in your fic first, then again I'm new to the herd, been a brony for only 4 weeks now, so there is a lot of fandom lore and jokes that I don't know yet. Thanks for the info, will credit were it's due

>>462205

yeah, the facts are muddy, this totally fell out of my head in like three hours so there's bound to be holes in it. There was a violent backlash in which several people were hurt, not killed. I think I will elaborate on that in the next chapter though

>>462174

IKR?

>>462226

it's funny you mention that, I thought about that too, but then I thought; no there might be stragglers. They would want to get as many bronies to the other side as wanted to go. also, ominous foreshadowing?

#33 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462265 Foreshadowing?...:pinkiegasp: OHGOD! What if an anti-brony group goes into Equestrian to....to....DESTROY IT?

#34 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Not sure if trolling or not. I can only assume it is, since it's the only way I can find this humorous.

#35 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462294

Who's trolling? me or somepony else? :rainbowlaugh:

#36 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Human fanfics are always the best I think! Good work!

#37 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

:moustache: That is all.  You have earned it.

#38 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462163

hmmmm, didn't think of that...I think I meant O2? idk, chemistry is not one of my strong suits...must research this...

#39 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462409 O2 Is the regular oxygen molecule, which is what we use in respiration. O3, or ozone, is only toxic in large amounts.

I hope that helped! :pinkiehappy:

#40 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462409

No you are right, lightning does form ozone gas. I believe that he misunderstood your use of the word "filled". Obviously it did not fill the whole room, just the smell of it. Besides, small amount for a short time the ponies will be fine.

#41 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462409

Clearly, neither are the specifics and nuances of the English language. Eh.

Anyways, color me intrigued. If you can up your writing abilities, and keep this going for a long while, consider yourself damned to the tenth circle of hell; that is, my faves list and a review with some criticism.

Good luck~

#42 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

This is amazing! what if this actually happened in the future? :rainbowhuh:

#43 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462229

I don't think its all that surprising for it to get this much attention.

I think one of the things that let it stand out is the uniqueness of the story.

First you got a massive number of bronies, usually a BiE story has only one brony.

Second you have considered the ramifications of the exodus to it's full extent. It can only get more interesting.

Third BNG was a great one shot. and it brought forth a very attractive idea, what would it be like if a ton of bronies just kinda appeared in equestria one day? These bronies have been ponyfied so there is a difference and honestly I really am lookin forward to this. if you are unconvinced then refer to my previous comment above.

#44 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

We would've gotten farther than 8 seasons!

#45 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Man, screw earth! ive always hated how everyone expects you to be the exact same as them, in Equestria i could be who i really am and not fear haters!

#46 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462315

You, for the content in the story. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to take all the over the top elements seriously or not, because it comes off as a bunch of wangst to me.

#47 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462520

Like they say "Your worst day in Equestria is still better than your best day on Earth"

#48 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

Hey! Remember to keep a chance to go through this portal for good ol' BronyRanger,  Y'HEAR?

#49 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

>>462409

The bubbles in soda are carbon dioxide, (CO2)

Just to clear that confusion up.

#50 · Chapter 1 · 123w, 6d ago · · ·

You know that this is a fiction because by the year 2020 everyone on earth will be a Brony/Pegasister making it so no one would try to get rid of Bronyism in the first place, and their will never be a final season of ponies the ponies are far to good for that. :rainbowdetermined2:
