    will the real chromosome please stand up

    Is this thing on?

    Good. You're gonna want to see this.

    I am not far many more things than I am, and among them are the following: I am not Chromosome. I am not who you think. I am not a vigil for this account's original owner. I am not a joke, or a trick, or a clever ruse. And as I've just recently and fortuitously come into possession of it, I am not planning on just leaving an account with over 800 followers to sit around unused and unloved while there are stories to be written and a fickle bastard of a feature box to invade.

    Conversely, I am controversial. I am intruding upon the legacy of someone you all seemed to have treasured while he was here. But I am also, by Chromosome's private admission, free to do whatever I want with this account. And I am intrigued, though not discomforted yet, with the choice I now face.

    What the hell should I do with this thing?

    I could try to emulate Chromosome's style and pick up where he left off. I could use this as a dumping ground for any plot thread I'm not sure if I want to follow. I could take commissions for anything under the sun. I could write clop, depraved or otherwise. I could do nothing at all, and merely stand guard over the remnants and rubble left behind by those who came before me. Regardless of what ends up happening here, I'll go ahead and add one more thing that I'm not.

    I'm not going away.

    Arriverderci, my little new friends, and good riddance to anyone who's decided to unfollow this account and direct their inordinately valued attention elsewhere. Any of you who want to stick around and watch what's about to go down... just call me Maverick. We just might have a little bit of fun together.

    Four Nails to a Coffin

    Hello, everyone. It's been a while! Sorry about that. Between finals looming on the horizon, other obligations and... well, just general laziness, I've been incapable of really keeping on top of journals. I'm sure you guys don't mind too much though.

    As I write this, I realise how this journal is another small drop in a rising ocean. Your tumblrs and facebooks and fimfiction accounts by now are probably black with notifications heralding one thing: season four has finally come. And wow, has it been a wait. You've endured a shoddy third season, a longer-than-usual dry spell, and finally you're being rewarded with one kicker of a full season. It's like a whole new world again.

    "But the time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things."

    I'm scratching my head as to how to put this best. Most of you know that when it comes to public announcements, I do my best to avoid waffling about my personal dealings. However, I believe that in this situation, at least some sort of explanation for what comes next. In past hiatus, I've always asked myself and my friends if they believe that immersing ourselves too fully in "serious" fanfiction was spoiling the show for us. The kind of emotion and theme that was being put across in writing couldn't be possibly matched by a children's cartoon. And it can't. But it didn't matter, because whenever we went back, we were reminded why we loved it so much to begin with. The jokes, the character, the all around fun. It's refreshing, in a sense, to get that feeling.

    Now imagine that wave didn't come. Imagine that in the show's absence the cynicism and maturity brought on by copious fanfics didn't get washed away by the purging light of pony marvel. Imagine that feeling gnawing at me the entire month leading up to the season four premiere until it came to the test today.

    I guess that what I'm trying to say is this: season four is going to be great. Amazing, even. Everything's been amped up from the characters to the animation. I can tell this from only ten minutes of having watched it. However this won't include me, because instead of finding myself enjoying the show, I find myself uncomfortable watching it, awkward. It's like when your parents tell you santa isn't real (spoilers!) and the magic just vanishes. And with my one last tie to a fandom I've got little love left for, what does it mean?

    Well, as far as you should be concerned, absolutely nothing! I'm going to keep writing Bezithan, I'm going to continue my presence on this website. Honestly, nothing will be different. Things are still the same, and all that's been added is a deadline. Bezithan shall be my last contribution to the ponyverse, and honestly? No other story could be more appropriate. My writing muscles are aching to move on to writing about things that aren't plush cartoon critters. I want that, I really want that. I want to be able to call myself a writer with no strings attached, to get published, to do what I want. And I guess I realise I can't do that here anymore.

    Anyways, that's all I really have to say on the subject. The future's still bright, folks! I've got a ton in store for Bezithan, and I can't wait to take you on this last trip. It's gonna be a good one. I hope you all enjoy season four. Give Celestia a kick in the seat for me.

Originally written by Chromosome.

Humans... humans are such a bizarre race. Capable of the greatest benevolence and the worst atrocities. And yet, they're so very predictable. For you see, while societies may die, and nations may crumble, one thing will remain constant: the desire to survive.

I should know. I was there when everything fell.

yay a depression fix!

Oh well, I still like it!

Those fucking implications. Those fucking implications.

Holy shit.

I thought he wouldn't give in. I was oh so very wrong.

Can't we ever have a happy story?

#7 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

... I don't know what's going on.

And I love it.

#8 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Anno Domini...year of the master...Very nice title indeed

#9 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Holy sweet mother of... That was awesome. If this is one of the reasons we haven't had a Background Pony update, I'm perfectly okay with this. For this was an excellent story. And it's finished, you say? Well, that's okay. This was excellent. Well done :twilightsmile:

#10 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

This is awesome

Have you met SS&E?

#13 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh... my! This is... exquisite. And way too true. And I can't wait for more.

I also very much like the style of the writing here.

#14 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Why does the computer use Celsius for temperature, but Curies for radiation? That measurement isn't SI and its use is strongly discouraged.

#15 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Holy mother of needs a sequel now.

I've come to expect great things from SS&E, but this is downright impressive.

Take my internets, take all of them.

#16 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

How can I favourite and like more than once?

#17 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Funny how I was listening to Rise Against's "Hero of War" when I finished reading that.

#18 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Gosh, Skirts.  You are one lonely motherbucker.

This is genius and creative and horrendously sad.  I loved and hated every word.  Equestria as a distantly-post-apocalyptic Earth is a fascinating idea.  I've been waiting to see you write for Discord, and I was far from disappointed.

I hesitate to say this, because it's not entirely true, but I wish I could get a glimpse of your imagination.  How does it come up with this stuff?  And how does it describe it so vividly?  So horribly...?

This is my favorite "Human" oneshot, and I doubt it will ever be topped.

EDIT:  Eeererrughghgh.... I feel awful.  You floored me with this, Chromosome.  You quite literally floored me.

#19 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

That's pretty interesting powered armor, I'm glad it wasn't actually a mech. Bipedal mechs are... ugh.

Anyway, what was that explosion? A nuclear bomb or the reactor?

I hope this has a possibility for a happy ending.

>>964992

One can always hope.

#20 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

A few cockups with bad word choices, but other than that this is depressingly interesting for a war-fic involving Discord. I think I shall follow it.

#22 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Wow. As sick as I am of humanity being portrayed as being war machines and nothing greater, this was written exceptionally well. And the implications of that last sentence ...

Well, you never dissapoint SS&E, but I'd just love a happy story out of you sometime. All these depressing fics ...

EDIT: and now that the LOEG has been revealed and we've all been made a fool off, I redirect all my praise to Chromosome.

#23 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache: 5/5 very nice.

#24 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

And the question remains... what does he do?

I like how the story is basically Discord breaking Hayden the same way he broke the Mane 6 in the Season 2 premiere. Everything was deliberate, I think, to soften Hayden up for Discord's offer.

#25 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Wonder how many LMOE's Discord went through to find one that wasn't too far gone or moral enough to work with?

#26 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>965260

That, sir, would seem to be the question of the day... :twilightoops:

#27 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

A story about last pony in Equestria, a story about invisible unicorn that no one remember and lives on its own, another story about a lone pony in Tartarus, and now  a story about the last human being.

I think there is some sort of pattern here. Not that I mind, they're all awesome and a good way to spend hours upon hours to read.

Also for the sake of off-topicy talk, this story is awesome too.

#28 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

I've always wondered what exactly happened before Celestia and Luna. It's always seemed so interesting.

Now let us watch as this goes down into the legends of this site.

#29 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

This was really good, I was skeptical at first, but damn...

also,

IN B4 FEATURED 2!!!  This was an amazing piece!  I hope we can all look foward to a sequel, or series sequel!

THE HELL DO YOU MEAN FINISHED

You forgot the depressing effects of immortality.

But it's all good; they're all awesome.

#33 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

wow, just, wow :pinkiecrazy:

#34 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>965462

same reaction.

MAKE MOOOOOOOOOOOOORE!

#35 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

That is some delicious Discord right there.

Where would you place this (if at all) in the canon timeline?

#36 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>964908

SS&E doesn't know how to write a happy story.

#37 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

AWWWWWWW SHIT!

you really like sending me into the dark, dank hole that is humanity's corruption, don't you? I mean, the last pony was great, but this can be amazing. And what do you think about contradicting your own story time-lines from the last pony?

#38 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

O_O

That was almost expected, but still downright terrifying.

#39 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Really? Something this awesome is a one shot SS&E???

Of course I am still waiting for you to return to EoP, so far be it from me to try and prod you towards making more of this...but if you could somehow do both... (or, I suppose three if ya count background pony).

As always, love yo shit!

BR
#40 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Shit...I think I know what he's gonna do next.

#41 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

Bring them humanity’s greatest creation...

...Bring them war.

That is not true.  Our greatest creation is not destruction.  We are not that paradoxal.

Discord is wrong.  I am not vain in knowing what our greatest creation is.

I be damn if I let some fake unreal broke god tell me who I am!

Good story - poor moral.

#42 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

That was brilliant. I wonder how humanity's second chance went, and how it faded and made room for ponies...

Also, Celestia will soon have a new garden statue :trollestia:

#43 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>966081

That's the point. For Discord, mankind's greatest creation is war. After all, he is the spirit of chaos, and war cause a whole crapton of chaos.

#44 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>965623

I don't think the word happy is in SS&E's dictionary.

#45 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

The Crusaders, you guys.

THINK OF THE FUCKING CRUSADERS.

#46 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>966081  You missed the point.  Well said, >>966128.  When the story ends, we feel afraid.  Or we feel gross, or worried, or angry--anything but happy.  Anything but moral.  The point of the story is that, if we're not careful and conscious about them, human tendencies toward violence and selfish survival can be chaotically devastating.

#47 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>966081

I believe that's the point. We know Discord is wrong. You, as the reader, are supposed to think, "No, Hayden, don't listen to him!"

Discord is the god of chaos, and he achieves his goals by manipulation and deceit. This is just a story of someone who fell for it. I think SS&E wanted you to take away that Discord is wrong about humanity, and if you think differently, that this could be the end result.

Or, I could be wrong, and SS&E is just one pessimistic motherbucker. :rainbowderp:

#48 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

>>965032

Because Discord.

>>966081

Well, there's still room for him to change his mind, right?

oh wait SS&E, nevermind, everybody dies

>>964872

I agree - the implication is so well done that I actually can't honestly wish for a continuation.

#50 · 122w, 1d ago · · ·

...damn. That's all I have to say.

Those ponies are probably screwed unless they can hit the war machine with the Elements of Harmony. And if Hayden's any competent he'll kill one of them before that happens.

Good story.
