The mares of Ponyville lead such eventful lives, but what about the stallions? Spike the dragon is about to get an inside look at the secret workings of Equestria's silent minority...
Very good story. By the way, it's "magnifique".
This was a great read! If they still implemented the star rating here, this would get a 5/5 from me.
Haha. This could get featured!
Make a group called the fraternal brotherhood of Mann. I would join!
Spike's in for it. Poor guy.
Do it. Make a Group called the Fraternal Brotherhood of Mann! DO IT, SO THAT I MAY BE MANN.
When i read the title i immediatley thought of Pyro
There IS going to be more chapters of this
Make a group. I will join it. I'm following you, and praying to whatever deity is listening that you make this group.
MAKE THIS GROUP PLEASE
MAAAAAAAAANN............. WHAT IS TWILIGHT GOING TO DO? THIS MAKES ME HAVE MANY CURIOUSITYS, I just really, for some unknown reason, want to know what Twilight says to him, I want the brotherhood of mann to be discovered by the mane 6 and dominated..... understand my meaning? Dominated sexually.
Tis an oldie but goody.
That was adorable.
Excellent. This plot line should certainly be continued!
Brotherhood Of Man - Motorhead
this. is. AWESOME!
Oh my goodness, make more. This is just too excellent to leave at this point! Spike getting hazed, Big Mac poker-facing like a boss, and Caramel getting sloshed- I love it all. Liked, faved, and brutally moustached!
Who controls the British crown, who keeps the metric system down. we do. we do.
I've got a quick question, are you a Homestar Runner fan? Because I think a spot a Homestar reference in the first AND second chapter of the story.
Anyway, this is a really good story!!
Aw shit, I have been looking for this everywhere! Thank you!
god that was awesome
would you ever consider adding more chapters?
>>563555563555 Glad you enjoyed it. There is a sequel on EqD. I'll upload it here once I'm done with my other stories.
This deserves the mann-liest of awards:
And great cliff-hanger!
>>669909669909 Your mother must be so proud.
That was great.
I wonder how long it has been since I've posted this pic...
“A fair point,” conceded Waddle with a paternal smile. “After all, what stallion can truly resist the charms of a mare?”
“I think I met such a one at the pub the other night,” muttered Whoof. “Offered to buy me a drink, he did.”
Christ, I thought my lungs were going to collapse from laughing.
Twilight and Luna were doing a dance-off? That's the best thing ever!
Awesome that you continued this, you did a great job!
First Granny Smith, now Luna?
Come next meeting there will be a large, white 11th member of the order, complete with ethereal mane and a suspiciously fake-looking beard.
And she... <*cough*> he will chuck the ale like there's no tomorrow!
I dare you!
Amazing! And Luna knows? Blasphemy. I have to ask... when will the Fraternal Brotherhood of Mann be arriving here? I await the awesomeness that is brotherhood!
>>669924669924 yes the voices are so proud
that was awesome
please tell me you are doing more
I'm a just envisioning 'Life of Brian' after reading this. IT MUST BE DONE!
I'm half expecting Derpy to bungle up the Doctor's night to hold the Brotherhood meeting. Boxy, Breezy, and Pokey are just gonna laaaaugh.
I pray silently that more Mann is coming.
No Way But The Hard Way - Airbourne
You could pretty much take your pick of AC/DC or Airbourne, really.
I can imagine Spike's face after Luna saying that.
my list of reactions
This is great, I really can't wait for more. I'll be honest, my first thought when the Doctor mentioned getting hit on by another stallion via drink offer was "Pony Captain Jack!"
I hope there's more where this came from. Its really well written and definitely a great read.
>>694772694772 See my last blog post. Sorry.
>>695108695108 Ah, what a pity. Well, thanks for the short but sweet ride. Definitely worth rereading again. Think I'll keep a copy on my kindle for when I need something short but fun to read.
Now will never know what Spike did for his act of mann! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
“This one goes out to all my bronies! Thanks for reading, keep your stick on the ice.”

So much win in one sentence at the end of a story full of win
Many Bro Hoofs ;-;
Aw hell yeah
Luna's an honorary Brother. Sister. Person.
you should really write another one... with the cliffhanger and all
I only have one thing to say and it isn't "FIRST!!" Though that is valid..
Brother spike, thou art royally screwed, also a question,
HOW IN THE BUCK HAS THE BROTHERHOOD LASTED SO LONG THAT LUNA WOULD KNOW!!
Considering Spike's a dragon, and thus covered in armor designed to withstand lava, I think he'll be fine. On the whole a fine ending to a nice little series.
Seriously dude? Leaving us on such a cruel cliffhanger?
LIKE A SURGE OF MOLASSES!!!
Wow amazing and I could just imagine twilight trying to find out about it and thinking its a secret order to overthrow the princesses and Luna enjoying every minute of teilights freakouts.
That is all.
Can't say I'm terribly pleased by the ending. I mean, Spike goes through a lot to reach this meeting, and then it just ends on a moment of dread and fear despite seemingly giving us a hope spot. It's just poor form to END a story on cliffhanger, you know? Just a little scene where Spike either feels no pain from the paddles due to his scales, or endures the initiation and is happy with his new status in the fraternity, or even chickens out and runs away, just some kind of closure! As it stands the whole thing just feels... dissapointing now.
Poor Caramel, but at least he got Windie back. And got the chance to prove his heterosexuality to her at great length. Wait, not sure why I'm saying poor Caramel.
That's the way Spike, can't escape from a party, start a fight.
Great chapter, I'm always glad to see an update to this story.
The paddling will not work on Spike due to his tough scales so... tough luck brotherhood.
I kinda like that ends on an ambiguous cliffhanger. First comes the paddles then comes the drinking. I'm gonna assume that Spike is stronger than the paddles because he did belly flop into a pit of molten lava.
He has tough scales, so Spike will be alright.
I may have to use something similar to this. It is seriously delightful
>>670134670134 Remember, just don't piss them off.
>>670143670143 They hold their meetings at night. Luna is the Keeper of the Night. The stars are her eyes. She's watching you. Plus it's kind-of her duty as ruler of the nation to know about secret, possibly dangerous, societies.
I would love to see King Sombra, in all of his shadowy glory, end up showing up as a member of the Brotherhood. Spike is essentially all, "Da fuq!? and they find out that Sombra's an old member, and that Spike doesn't have to worry about him exacting his revenge while at the meeting because of a Truce of Brotherhood or something. Again, just a bit of randomness that I'd love to see.
>>16713821671382 That works!
>>16713901671390 The thing about the eyes and that she be creepin' on everypony?
The paddles get stuck on his spines. Or shatter, maybe shatter.
Really great chapter.
>>16720441672044 Both Luna and Sombra(ero)
I need to read the new chapter.
>>16726141672614 Oh, O.K.. Yeah, it's pretty good.
>>16729401672940 Glad to hear!
what, is it over
I really like this series. This latest one especially. No idea if you ever plan to continue, but what you have written so far is excellent one way or another, and I laughed a lot.
By the way? I caught that MouseHunt reference.
Fucking loved that movie.
>>16762141676214 I loved that movie too.
Glad Caramel and Windy are back together.
I also liked the hint of RainbowPie and Spike's plan of escape, and the paddles were funny once I realized his scales would protect him. Will there be more?
was Derpy's.. dissaperence and attire a refence to another fic or something?
HAH. Luna knows ALL.
"Canis Bowie" nice, man, nice. Really wanted to see the fight between Rainbow and Berry Punch, though...
>>17110221711022 It wouldn't have ended well for R.D. Nopony defeats the Punchmistress...
Oh no...They're going to challenge him to a game of ping-pong!
This is one awesome and funny story Nice idea giving overview on Mann part of the Ponyville I silently hope that it is not yet completed
Ha, Fallout New Vagas reference, classic. Anyway I really enjoyed this story, it puts the males of Equestria in the spot light for a change.
Ok, the Spike-substitute record player scene had me in stitches!
Also, the quote “Really Spike, it is considered quite rude to hyperventilate in the presence of a lady.” was gold!
