Something odd at your doorstep? Weird voices in the night? Call the CMC, they'll make it all right!
"There's something strange, in the neighborhood..."
Okay, you've got me. I mean, it's really only an introduction. But you've got some clever ideas, and give a sense that cool things are going to happen, and I wonder what's going on with the CMC. I'll be looking forward to the next chapter.
I like your writing style. It reminds me so much of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, but feels very unique and enjoyable. I AM WATCHING YOU...
Well. I'm not entirely sure exactly where I was expecting this story to go, but it certainly wasn't this.
Oh this is perfect! I was smiling the whole way through . A ghoul, a robot (Sweetiebot! Yes!), and evil cultists that are chasing Scootaloo for some reason? And Pinkie making candy-loaded weapons! Sweet.
Thanks for the new CMC story! Yay! It keeps getting better and better. MOAR!
...Now admit it: You´ve read so much Pratchett that it´s seeping out in your text. Which is why I love reading it
Sweetie Bot, and Apple Gloom
...what? don't give me tha...
okay fine I won't tease you
This is the best thing of all things.
Well, it can't be Scoota-protoalicorn.
I've got to run out of the house for a bit, but I'll read this once I get back. After all, with Sweetie Bot AND Appleblank confirmed in the cast, we're just one Scootaling (Changeling Scootaloo) away from this being the...
I'm back. Read the whole thing. Just one orphaned changeling away from NONE of the CMC from EVER getting their Cutie Marks.
Why yes. This is awesome...
That moment when sweetie belle unfolded what to me looked like a pair of miniguns from the sides...
Altho I don't see any of the crusaders beeing prevented from getting a cutie mark eventually. Ghoul or robot...
This is certainly different. I'll be keeping a close eye on this.
>>967732967732 i wish. I believe we have Scoota-orphan, one of the more depressing Scoota's
As I posted earlier, I'm holding out hope for Orphaned Changeling Scootaloo, or Scootaling, for short. All the depression of Scoota-orphan, combined with the physiological horror of the "Tomato in the Mirror" trope.
...that... That is actually a rather good point. My earlier point about NONE of the CMC getting Cutie Marks has now been rescinded.
More reason to hold out hope that Scootaloo will turn out to be a changeling: Balooga released a new CMC groupshot!
*Is in his happy place*
...not sure what is up with Sootaling's arm in the third panel, though...
>>10608021060802 I'm with you! I really hope it turns out that Scootaloo is a changeling!
I was floored by the writing style and the interesting view into Ditzy. I only wished I thought of something that cool for a Whooves story of mine. I'm in.
"First, there’s the vital checklist. Are your lungs, gills, or phalanges working?"
Adams and Pratchett would be proud.
“Traditionally Taste is skipped entirely, and sight only gets a brief check to make sure it’s there before shutting down again.”
Niggling detail. Either lowercase taste or capitalize Sight.
“His actions would become significant only after town hall exploded, but they also started at this time.”
I love these kinds of comedic foreshadowing.
This story is a keeper. Now I actually need to go through Tale of the Blanks.
>>967572967572 Indeed, it is the best possible thing. : nods sagely.
That was the single most random chapter I've ever read anywhere I enjoyed every second of it.
So what your saying is this fic isn't dead....
Still waiting for Scootaloo to be reveled to be a Changeling.
Man, it's been so long since this updated, I had to go back and reread the previous chapters to remind myself what was going on.
It did not help.
Pinkie please stop before all of reality collapses around us...
Few words can describe how I feel about this being continued. Words such as: WOOHOO, FUCK YEAH *runs in a circle* WOO! *happy dance*
I'm very happy to see this continued, as I am for everything that you've written so far.
>>20098962009896 You, Sir/Ma'am/Gentlething, need to read this, if that is the case. It's the most ramndom thing I've managed to find. The fact that my brain broke while reading it is just one point in it's favor.
