Zecora's helpful nature has won her many good friends in Ponyville, but they're in for a big surprise when Zecora tries to show them what the best medicine really is. And no, it's not laughter.

I can see this being featured... :ajsmug:

#2 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

At first, I was like, 'what's with the title'?

Then I read it.

And I lol'd so hard.

#3 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

Niceeeee, lol...

Between Pinkie's completely ditz agreement, and the reference to Granny smith's line and fronting, it's just.. Dear Celestia :rainbowlaugh:

#4 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

When I started reading, I was in a bad mood. Now? Can't stop smiling.

#5 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

:pinkiegasp: Buck yeah! Hahahah this is hilarious!

#6 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

>>752865 One can hope. :moustache:

>>752875>>752879>>752897>>752940 It's a relief to know that this actually IS funny. Phew. :twilightsheepish: Really glad you guys enjoyed it!

#7 · 215w, 20h ago · · ·

Heh, this made me smile.

Because of that, you've earned a thumbs up from me :pinkiesmile:

#8 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·

I read the description and all I could think is "I am either a massive pervert or this is gonna get sexual." It did, and it was hilarious.

#10 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·

I caught the reference to Fluttershy's original name.  Extraordinary story.

#11 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·

This made me smile, smile, smile.

Also,  I didn't even [i[know you could do that with cake frosting! And Zecora, she--"

#13 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·

>>753072 Ha, good on ya! I was wondering who might mention that.

>>753084 Thank you for the fix!! Oh, and I thought of you when I PinkieDash'd :heart:

>>753085 Oh-hohoho! :moustache:

#14 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·

Exemplary! :moustache:

#15 · 215w, 19h ago · · ·


My Little PinkieDash: Frosting is Magic

Did you read that story? With the frosting gun? It was a bit bleh except for the frosting gun part. With was actually also bleh, but fun imagery.

#16 · 215w, 18h ago · 1 · ·

"Is it a mare's approach that causes you shock? There's still much fun to be had, even without a--"

And that´s where I hit the "Like" Button.

#17 · 215w, 18h ago · · ·

>>753128 Excelsior! :moustache:

>>753178 Never heard of it. I'm mildly scared.

#18 · 215w, 18h ago · · ·

L.O.V.E. Machine - W.A.S.P.

For some reason I was expecting Beavis and Butthead, but that was funny enough.

#19 · 215w, 18h ago · · ·

This is now Zecora´s official theme in my headcanon.

#20 · 215w, 18h ago · · ·

Zecora Does Ponyville

Like...all of them?

Maybe I should actually read this.

#21 · 215w, 18h ago · · ·

>>753199 Takei is best pony.

>>753251>>753266 Gonna have to listen to these later!

#23 · 215w, 16h ago · · ·

I don't even understand what happened, but I have the distinct feeling that you're so good at your craft that I never will, either.

Loved it. Envy you for being a clever pony.

#24 · 215w, 13h ago · · ·

I usually don't like this kind of thing, but... that was admittedly hilarious.  I :rainbowlaugh: out loud more times than I could count.  Good on you!  Very clever writing, and excellent rhymes for Miss Z.

#25 · 215w, 10h ago · · ·

>>753492 Well, that's one way to use an icing gun. :derpytongue2:

>>753819 Zecora did Ponyville, obviously!

>>753819>>754692 Really glad you liked it so much! Thank you, guys. :pinkiehappy:

#26 · 215w, 10h ago · · ·

Congratulations! You are officially #10 on the featured list! Numbers 1, 2, and 3 being the top three featured right now.

#27 · 215w, 41m ago · · ·

I thought this couldn't possibly be, because man, too obvious! Then it turns out it is what it is!:rainbowlaugh:

#28 · 214w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm always impressed with Zecora fics, just because of the talent it takes to write all her lines.

This was very funny and amused me greatly.


#29 · 214w, 6d ago · · ·

>>755549 Woo! I'm Number Ten! I'm Number Ten! :yay:

>>757036 It is what it is! Truer words have never been spoken...

>>758720 I tend to pause while I'm writing to think about what I'm going to do next, but in this story the longest pauses were trying to decide what Zecora was going to say. Honestly, it was fun! But, I don't think I could write her as the main character of a longer, non-comedic story. It would probably start to get to me. :derpytongue2:

>>759942 Iambic pentameter looks really frickin' hard.

#31 · 214w, 6d ago · · ·

>>760226 I don't think I pulled off 100% Iambic pentameter but yeah, during editing I realized I needed to re-structure some of Zecora's sentences to get as close as possible. I think it turned out okay!

#32 · 214w, 6d ago · · ·

I had wayyy too much laugh right now

#33 · 214w, 6d ago · · ·

You get the "Best Use of Sweetie Belle Interruption" award! :unsuresweetie:

>>753266WHAT THE BUCK IS CANNON ?!?!?!?!:twilightoops:

#35 · 214w, 5d ago · · ·


CANON on the other hoof =

1.  An ecclesiastical law or code of laws established by a church council.

2.  A secular law, rule, or code of law.


a.  An established principle: the canons of polite society.

b.  A basis for judgment; a standard or criterion.

4.  The books of the Bible officially accepted as Holy Scripture.


a.  A group of literary works that are generally accepted as representing a field: "the durable canon of American short fiction" (William Styron).

b.  The works of a writer that have been accepted as authentic: the entire Shakespeare canon.

6. Canon The part of the Mass beginning after the Preface and Sanctus and ending just before the Lord's Prayer.

7.  The calendar of saints accepted by the Roman Catholic Church.

8. Music A composition or passage in which a melody is imitated by one or more voices at fixed intervals of pitch and time.

Means what is official fact according to the series and merchandise etc.

Fanon = What the fans think is canon. For example Octavia x Vinyl Scratch

Headcanon = What goes inside my own head that I think should be canon. For example Zecora listening to George Michael while doing Ponyville.

"Of all possible dangers, the great and the small, the least of my worries is a faceful of balls."


#39 · 214w, 11h ago · · ·

>>794485 I try not to be too amused by my own humor, but I did laugh when I came up with that one. I think it's probably my favorite part of the story. I'm glad you liked it, too! :pinkiehappy:

#40 · 214w, 3h ago · · ·

"a shouted whisper" :D

I'll let you get away with it though, it's clearly used for laffs. And laff I did. Love it :pinkiehappy:

#41 · 213w, 6d ago · · ·

CONGRATS ON EQD!!! :pinkiegasp:

#42 · 213w, 6d ago · · ·

Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets that reference.

#43 · 213w, 6d ago · · ·

Ehh, yet another "clop-tease" story? :applejackunsure:

#44 · 213w, 6d ago · · ·
