All Princess Luna wanted was to wake up and enjoy her night, but after getting pranked one too many times by Philomena she is determined to get revenge. Can the palace withstand a prank war between these two?
Now on Equestria Daily
A bi-bi-bird bird bird! Bird is the word.
Did you know, about the bird!
this sounds VERY funny
and I will read it later
Excellent! Had me roaring, and I'm sure everyone else in the house thinks I'm crazy now. Crazier... Anywho, really looking forward to the next part! Please keep writing, I'll keep reading!
Why is this so funny? Help. Unable to sustain sanity with laughter. Going down!
great story! needs a sequel. or a spin-off about Twilight's adventures as a frog!
I knew something like this would happen one day! Philomena seemed just the perfect foil to Luna's high-strung disposition.
I'll admit the socks thing is a little on the random side, and our lack of knowledge or even hints as to why it's there is a little jarring, but maybe that's something for later chapters. So, maybe the random tag as well for this?
Oh, and very funny! By the way, will we see Philomena preen Luna's feathers at one point? Seems the troll thing to do.
A prank war between a fire bird with the power of regeneration and a veritable goddess?
Best comment yet
>>872418872418 Thank you.
This, is, hilarious! Keep up the great work, I'm dying to read the next one.
I hope you continue this!
I think this must be the best prank war book i've read in a while! And it's just getting started!
>>871485871485 Well, everybody knows that the bird is the word!
I think Nightmare Moon started by talking to socks. Life goes in circles.
RIP, Mr. Socko
I laughed. Hard. Thank you. You have a favorite.
Ladies and Gents, let us have a moment of silence for Mr. Socko.
Okay moment's over. DEATH TO THE.... bird that essentially has infinite lives... um....huh. I got nothing.
People, we got ourselves a war!
This is one of the best stories I've ever read! Keep up the good work, and let's hope that Luna will be victorious against Philomena! A bird that makes Fluttershy cry, is no friend of mine!
Anyways, keep on writing!
You know all those stories/games/shows where all the gods are for some reason locked in eternal hatred or combat with each other? I used to wonder why it is that they continue those kind of pointless wars. Now with a phoenix and an alicorn involved in prank infinitum, I can see how it might work. The Gods are closet sock puppet addicts too.
Philomena.... Two things....
You're gonna need it by the end of this.
If you would prefer, I can censor that^.
Okay, THAT is the best response yet.
Sorry, bro, but that guy above took your crown
He earned it.
You earned it.
"whispered Celestia, smirking as she peeled a banana."
Oh Harmony, Luna's full name . . .
I also have the most minuscule of nits to pick: the phrase is "So mote it be". It just doesn't have the same punch otherwise.
XD I like the ghostbuster reference you made lol I can't wait to see more of this!
Woo hoo! Congrats on the Equestria Daily, glad I could lend a hand in this!
You my good sir, deserve a moustache ... No... may a thousand moustaches fall upon thee... this is one of the best fics I've read in a while, keep them comming, I cannot wait to read more.
You just had to put Faust as the last name in that list. And you just had to make me rupture something in laughter because of it.
Man, so funny.
brace yourselves mah bronies and pegasisters... this is gonna be biblical...
Bring on the next chapter!!
I'm sticking around,
This is hilarious, I can't wait to see more.
You know, I enjoyed the story... except for the fact that you made luna something of an inconsiderate bitch.
>>924062924062 Really? Well, the part about waking her, I guess. Mostly I thought it just made Philomena seem absolutely insufferable.
Remind me not to set off Luna...I don't think I want to smell like fried human o.0
I was enjoying this thoroughly already, even with the oddness involving socks (I've seen it often enough that it pretty much just elicits a shrug anymore), and then you got to the aside with the dragon.
That secured a favorite and a thumbs up. Let's see where this goes...
One little thing: When Helm Breaker asks Nocturne if he's okay (“You alive in their, rookie?”), it should be there instead.
For the rest, awesomesauce.
I was waiting for somebody to get that
>>966417966417 It was the first thing that popped into my mind when i read that line, you had me rolling when Celestia pulled out the banana
It doesn't matter how old the joke is. If you can make it appear at the right moment, it can still work.
"I will make her feel the wrath of a thousand pranks before the week’s end! I don’t care if it takes me an eternity!"
an eternity or weeks end .. whatever comes first
Equestrian is gonna burn isn't it?
Another hilarious chapter
Favorite line:"Taping a sign that said ‘Worship My Royal Flank’ on my backside without me noticing!"
That night would be forever known as “Luna’s World Disco Party”.
Oh Luna, you need to be more genre savvy.
BAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHA The birds and the bee's chasing luna, The Great Breezie Ethnic Cleansing of 1657 hahah oh my god.
You sir, win all the internets
Celestia: Canines, sister?
Luna: All the better to eat meat with, my dear sister...!
Twilight: Wow, someone who loses their sanity even more severely than me. Wow.
Twilight instead went back to sleep, hoping Star Swirl would be waiting for her.
Let me guess its actually Celestia pranking Luna and framing Philomeena with the feathers
"I can dig it!"
*Steel walks into the room, carrying a paper bag full of groceries. He looks over at Pinkie on his computer.*
Shouldn't you be over at the Corner? Figured you were on till today.
"Nah, I've got the day off! Something about a cupcake disaster and the shop having to close down the kitchen for cleaning."
Huh...yeah, I heard about that. Wasn't that one of Twilight's experiments?
"Yeah, I'll tell you about it later! Come and look at this!"
*Steel walks over after placing the bag on a small table in the middle of the room, and he walks over to Pinkie's side, leaning down to see the screen.*
"I know! Great, isn't it!?"
I dunno. She's never run into you or Rainbow Dash proper since the Nightmare Moon incident, so where would she learn about pranking...?
*Steel squints his eyes, reading the description again.*
...What's Celestia teaching her pet?
"Well, isn't that obvious? Pranking!"
Whoever heard of a pheonix that pranks ponies...?
*Steel quirks his mouth in slight confusion, before shrugging and walking over to his couch. He crashes down onto it, placing his chin in his open hand as he leans forward. Pinkie turns around and looks at him.*
"Well? Aren't you gonna read it?"
Nah. You can go ahead, I'm good. I installed several new anti-viruses, so I shouldn't have any more problems with you guys using my computer. Just try not to break it.
*Pinkie spins around again, giggling to herself, as Steel pulls a Dr. Pepper out of the bag and cracks it open. He takes a sip as he stares at the ceiling, lost in his own thoughts.*
While this is VERY funny, I was sort of hoping for Luna to attempt a prank on Philomena, but Celestia gets caught in it and then declares a three way prank war.
I wanna see Rainbow Dash and Thunderlane's dance.
'Cause I love that pairing.
No, it's Philomena. Celly pranking Luna has been done before. This is 100 percent original.
Same as above
Oh that bird needs to pay! It has gone too far this time!
Polka ... now thats doing thing in style.
>>10858261085826 It's something called a 'skit'. Instead of doing your typical, every day-
Comments, I figured I'd do something more fun, more insightful, more creative.
"So he decided to invite me and my friends over from time to time for a reading group!"
Indeed. Seven points of view are far better than just one, after all.
"Yeah! Plus it's a lot of fun to see what people write about us!"
"Steel gets into the bad stuff a lot though!"
Oy! Don't go TELLING them that!
"Pinkie keeps no secrets that aren't locked down by a Pinkie Promise!"
I saw what you did to that stallion who broke the last one! It's suicide!
Hozza, the fun has been double!
You know, now that I actually know Luna a bit better, I'd have to say that was a little cruel of her sister...
Awww, c'mon! It's all in good fun!
She's been locked away on the moon for 1000 years, possessed by her hatred and jealousy of her sister! She's been PLOTTING this whole time! If it wasn't for you and the others, she'd probably still be RESURRECTING Celestia for the 50th time, then torturing her to death!
Steel! This is a COMIC, not...well, not whatever it is you were talking about!
...Right. Ahem, regaining composure...3...2...1...Ok. Luna is kind-hearted, but she's been out of the loop for 1000 years. That's kind of a cruel prank to pull on someone who tries to make a friend every night.
Yeah, it is, actually.
I don't feel bad for laughing at it once upon a time, but I'd feel bad if I laughed over it now.
Celestia shook her head as she watched her sister jump into the grave, shouting the name of her favorite sock over and over again.
I think i almost pissed my self from laughing.
Damn I thought this fic died...
Philomena must be thanked for the greatest party ever, even beating every Pinkie Pie party ever . . . Well done.
(Celestia will be . . . annoyed)
>>10861411086141 You're a decade too late; that's 80's Cheerliee.
Oh my fucking god, the 80's won't die in equestria EITHER??!!?!!?!?!?!!?!?!!?
>>10859941085994 IN the moon not on the moon
No... Not Disco! I thought we had defeated that abomination against dancing three decades ago! No! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
>>10884541088454 Fine, sorry, IN the moon.
...Celestia throws ponies REALLY hard.
"It's all in the neck."
May you rest in peace in the eternal drawer of the heavens.
We will never forget you,
>>10885131088513 she really does
Cool, Disco! :-) (Do not overdo the suffering of Luna or there is no way back at the end).
The Bird is the Word indeed. (Everybody's talkin about the bird...)
I know that Philomena is just trying to get a good laugh, but this is starting to get a little cruel.
Also Twilight, you realize that Spike totally has an idea right? I mean, you have a library full of books about everything and he's usually the one putting them on the shelves.:moustache
Wow look at me, I'm trying to have a conversation with a character that's in a fictional story based on another fictional story. God I'm losing it.
Are you sure you had it to begin with?
Yes! I mean no. Wait, what exactly is it?
Duh! I'm perfectly sane dude.
You're having a debate with yourself over you're own sanity in the comments, pretty sure that means you're nutty.
Don't hate me cuz you ain't me.
Ha! I am you you dick.
Anyways, great job on the second chapter. It was a bit of a long wait for my tastes, but you made the wait worth it.
Oh, and sorry about that little conversation.
This is what I needed after an absolutely horrid day at work. Thank you for making me laugh so hard I now have tears in my eyes.
My god!! this one was Hilarious!!
if any one know of a twilight and Star Swirl clop fic let me know cause now i want to read one lol
Ha ha, holy shit. XD
Still want Luna to win, tho.
What is the Breezie thing referencing?
That is amazing.
I love this.
Poor Luna... Even if disco moon is amazing.
That is all.
You just broke rule number one when dealing with Luna.
First, one should never call her Lulu; only Celestia had that right.
Celestia rest your soul.
Poor, poor Princess Luna. I really, really want Philomina to get her comeuppance... perhaps an appearance of the two greatest pranksters in Ponyville is in order?
Breezie's were a small fairy like race of ponies that appeared in G3
Wait. Kuwait just a minute here. Luna's middle name is Trixie?
Where did you get that?
" Princess Luna Artemis Diana Beatrix Leah Olympia Faust."
Trixie is short for Beatrix. I think that's pretty cool, at least.
If Twilight is really the brainiac she is supposed to be (in this fic) and now that she has a reason to despise Philomena, then she will enlist the help of and , the four of them will make the bird's eternal life hell... or destroy the palace trying.
Rated PonyStar WE DEMMAND SHENNANIGANS!!!
this was worth the wait it was just to fabulous of a chapter
"With both the birds and the bees right behind her tail, Princess Luna only prayed she would be coming out of this mess in one piece."
YOU ARE A MASTER
Weeeellll as the victim of a fair few pranks in my time I should probably consult my split personality:-
Crimson: I think Luna should just take the pranks as they come and try to join in with the merriment...
Kimberly: THIS MEANS WAR! First we prank Philomena, then Celestia, and then we can plunge the world into eternal prankness!
ATTENTION FELLOW FIMFICTION USERS:
With the release of palace perils chapter 2 I believe it is safe to say the we have reached the end of the internet
We've had a good run.
However, it is now time to turn off your computers and go outside, as it simply can't get better then this.
I was afraid you were going Afro circus on me with Pinkies suit
FEAR FOR YOUR LIVES MORTAL PONIES, FEAR THE COMING OF...
THE DANCE...SHALL LAST...FOREVER!!!
Mr. Socko... wasn't there a Mr. Socko in an online comic about a guy who goes to an alternate universe where humans are replaced by anthropomorphic animals? That guy had a Mr. Socko who spoke in a cheesy Italian accent.
Actually, the idea of a Mr. Socko came from Hardcore Wrestling Legend Mick Foley.
Why are you not updating for this?
Will be updated very soon
