Scootaloo was an orphan until she accepted a changelings offer to become a family. Now that all the craziness with the changelings is over it should be smooth sailing as Scootaloo and her family try to live their life but nothing's ever that easy.
(Sequel to Lightning Strikes)
Sequel to awesome fic? Sequel to awesome fic.
Now we get to see Scoots and her two mommies!
Woo! Sequel time! I'm so excited!
But then this happened.....
Well, Scootaloo when two people love each other
when two people love each other
two people love
I like it, it was very punctual as well. Keep up the outstanding work.
yay ive been waiting for this i wonder how this story will continue
Twilight said "She sure can sneak up on people." in the Royal Wedding episodes when she was talking about Cadance. So it's valid.
Scootaloo did not ask her mom to change her appearance. Either way, its a good story!
Scootaloo suggested that shiv have a pony form to go with her name. She was referring to how lightning made a new form to go with the name like having a matching tie and suit ya know.
Like and a fav :D
Also what was the story before this one called?
Yay sequel! Lets see what zany adventures they can get into!
(apparently 'yay' isn't a real word according to my spell-check...)
>>989345989345 The first one is called Lightning Strikes
>>989347989347 Yay's a real word in my book.
>>989376989376 Ty im gonna read it later.
2 awesome sequels to 2 awesome post wedding fanfiction in 1 week nice
NICE! Sequel to awesome fic indeed!
Oh, poor Scoots. She was an orphan. For a short time she had a mom. Now she has 2 moms, and they're both changelings. The bullies at school are gonna have field day!
Until her two Changeling moms bust out the leg blades and chitinous exoskeletons. Then the bullies will pee themselves unapologetically and run away in testicle (or ovary)-shriveling terror.
I don't think I've ever heard of that kind of terror.
I've used the testicle version to describe a combination of humiliation and defeat. Basically I used it because it SOUNDS ultimate and total. The very gender-specific organs of power (in a cultural context) are shriveling in terror or defeat, as though draining the owner of their might. I included ovaries because there are a LOT of mares in Equestria, and some of them can be bullies.
Well either way I'm gonna put that phrase in my repeater and use it when appropriate.
Awesome! I got someone to repeat a weird phrase I made up
Nice to see continuation of great story :)
And it will continue. Just at a slow pace I think. College is starting in a few days and I gotta focus on that. But I'll still find time to crank out a chapter when I can.
Sweet, very sweet.
I was also expecting more of a reaction. I'll just assume they're both going to freakout in private and then go back to being fine with it.
D'awww. Family togetherness. And the CMC being awesome.
Frankly, I want to see Sweetie make a lemon explode in the show. I already saw the comic (so I get the reference.)
sooo cute. i wonder what sivers job going to be
Waiting for more :D
The plot thickens and things get more interesting. Also, good to know they can have children.
Those last few words should be all we need to know what happens.
Meh, they'll fix it somehow. The elements are on the changelings' side, and everypony know the elements run that town.
interesting. witing for more
NOOOOoo that guy is such a biggot. poor lightning.
I know the story needs a villain, by why do people always use Filthy Rich when they need a rich jackass to harass the main characters of the story? The one time he was really given lines in the show he was portrayed as being the exact opposite.
That aside, yet another great chapter for a great story. Shit's about to get real I think. Now I really, REALLY want to know what happens next.
>>11309771130977 ikr and even at the end of the episode he tried to get Diamond Tiara to stop acting like a brat
I guess now is a good time to call up on a favor from Celestia, after all Lightning has done for Ponyville and in the battle. I would guess the princesses have a little more pull than Filthy?
And making Filthy Rich an asshole towards the maincharacter HAVE been overused (like Aziraphael pointed out), but in this case.... I think he's just xenophobic bigot, which makes it ok in my books to use him in that fashion.
well as long as the mayor isnt part of the group they wont have to worry about this to much
Things aren't as black and white as Filthy being a villain. Just let me work my magic, you'll see what happens
Hit the nail on the head with the xenophobe thing.
>>11319671131967 I suppose I've just become too jaded to FR's portrayal in fanfiction. 90% of the stories he shows up in end up with him being a douchebag with the only reason given being, "LOL, because I said so!". I should have known you would be better than that.....
Meh, no worries.
A good Lawyer? She's a national hero, she could call in the Princesses themselves if she wanted to.
Hmmm, are changelings even subject to Equestrian law? I'm sure they follow it to stay on everypony's good side but, could Lightning just ignore the legal summons as being a changeling?
Oh Filthy, why you gotta be like that? I'm sure the changelings could do wonders for your business. Need some "advertising" boom 20 identical mares.
>>11313801131380 >>11322971132297 Not to mention the CMC (who in their right minds wants to piss off the most destructive fillies in town
I think Filthy Rich and his group maybe out-gunned here.
Oh damn. It just got real. Fight for your family, Lightning.
What Lightning needs to do is tell Scootaloo. Scootaloo will then tell Applebloom, who will tell Granny Smith, who will have a few words with Filthy. Problem solved.
Problem with that is Filthy Rich and Granny Smith are in a business relationship. He doesn't need the the product the Apple family makes because he has a department store, that's what I think he owns anyway. On the other hand the Apples need the money they get from Filthy. They can't go against him because losing him as a business partner would put a dent in their profits and possibly cause the Apples to lose the farm.
Filthy's using a legal route. None of the others can get involved because this isn't just a personal problem anymore now that the court system's involved. As bad as it sounds Filthy's completely within his rights to challenge Lightning on her legal custody of Scootaloo because of the method Lightning used to get said custody. And even though Lightning's kind of a hero the Princesses can't get involved because they're the rulers of a nation and can't show favoritism to subject with this type of problem. If Lightning got royal help then others would want it too. It's all politics.
>>11975441197544 That still leaves the CMC. After all, children are one of the most destructive forces in any world...
This is true but would destruction really help here? If the CMC were to take any retaliatory action it could do more harm then good.
Berry Punch, Alcoholic Attorney at Law.
Now we know how Berry afford all that alcohol!
oh sweet clestia. that is sooo funny.
>>12124691212469 actually thats a bout the norm
my sister is a attorney and when she isnt on a case she is eather sleeping or drinking some
"two Brothers Brandy"
Yay! We've entered the realm of bureacracy and red tape.
Drunk lawyer is best lawyer! How appropriate I was just watching VGA play Phoenix Wright before reading this.
Couple errors I spotted:
from one FIlthy Rich.
she felt didn’t ebe. (ebb)
to let go off a bit of her
Thanks for the error spotting. And for reading.
You're welcome for the spotting and reading, thank you for writing.
Filthy Rich is a Lawfully Evil villain, but what makes it worse is that he thinks he is Lawfully good hero.
The worst kind of evil, is the one that think its good!
>>12244921224492 but that is the only true evil
I can't wait to see the royal dress down Filty will receive.
>>10575411057541Yes. I want to see Scootaloo get a sibling.
Oh crap...Why does no one ever check the door?
I can see this working in their favor though...a natural reaction from Scootaloo at the thought of losing her new family, leading to her trying to find a way to save it herself, which would show that she is better off with the changelings to the court.
Looking forward to more. I wanna see if my theory is even remotely close...probably isn't...almost never is...
"Twilight stopped and made a few swallowing motions. She stuck out her tongue with the crystal resting on it."
UH HURR DURR HOARSES DUN HAVE GAG REFLEXES HURR DURR HURR
I'm just kidding, I don't care. Just sayin it before someone else does. I know Pinkie has vomited before so I'm cool with that... Although that was a little too easy for Twilight to hock up. I blame magic.
Nah, she just read how to in a book. She read Hoofdeanies guide to escaping hoof cuffs.
Want more now!!!!!!
Destroying their chances of an easy win yet again, lol.
Damn, Scoots really told Diamond Tiara there. Now, if only something like this happened in the actual show . . .
With the lemons!
Cave Johnson would be proud.
Hmmm, I admire Scoot's courage and initiative...but breaking in still seems like a bad idea.
Also I get the distinct feeling that Diamond Tiara is going to be an ally in this endeavor rather than an enemy. She seemed legitimately confused and...unsympathetic...to her fathers scheme. If I'm right that's awesome! I like it when Tiara and Spoon aren't total jerks all the time.
That was actually rather clever use of the cloud and rope.
Oooooo now I gotta know how this plays out.
Also I'll just leave this:
leapt of the table
cutting through the Ponyville, park a (misplaced comma)
she gasped, realizing that she was caught the only thing she could do was watch as Scootaloo closed the last few inches between them. (I think gasped should end in a period, and then have a comma after caught.)
CUTIEMARK CRUSADERS HOME INVASION!!!
Dude, a Kenan and Kel reference? interesting....
>>14306041430604 i was thinking that the whole time
when life gives you lemons don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down
ya burn his house down with the lemons
Ya gotta love the 90's.
>>14375131437513 Yeah you do! I LOVE ORANGE SODA!
Interesting. Kinda wishing you updated more frequently so I didn't have to wait so long to find out what happens next.
Sorry 'bout that but with college and life in general getting in the way I don't have much time to write. When my work load lightens up a bit I should be more regular.
>>14514101451410Aw. Well, that's life. Kind of life that I'll probly never get to.
>>14521101452110 Why not?
>>14530531453053I don't think you'd want to hear my answer to that.
Fair enough. Although I am curious, it's your answer to give or withhold.
>>14573321457332If you really want to know, Pm me and I'll reply.
>>12124691212469 What >>12128441212844 said. I was a Paralegal student for awhile, and what I heard some of my prof.s say about previous work-places, and/or what they themselves did in their spare time, yeah, quite a number of lawyers either drink, smoke, or both. They need SOMETHING to alleviate all of that stress they deal with.
Anywho, looking foward to maor! :3
DUN DUN DUNNNN!!!
Sweetie Belle is Cave Johnson's top engineer. Eat your heart out, Apple Bloom!
Just a warning to everyone. My pre reader's been busy so this is the chapter with only me going through it to look for errors. I might have missed something so if you see anything tell me and I'll get to fixin' it.
So far seems good to me, and interesting how you're not making Diamond tiara an evil bully
Retrieving a pen from it’s holster - its
Nothing says covert infiltration better than high explosive.
including the A-Team reference made this chapter 20% cooler .
Called it and loved it.
And an A-Team reference, nice.
Can't wait to see the look on his face when he shows up to the trial with no evidence.
Time drug on as (drug is a substance, past tense of drag is dragged)
Additionally you have the word "Ah" when Apple Bloom talks capitalized when it shouldn't be frequently.
The Ah is her saying I with her accent.
Yeah...but since it's not an "I" I don't think it should be capitalized...
Might be wrong, oh well minor quibble.
Hmm, you could be right. Meh, I'll just leave it as is and if enough people say something I might change it I guess.
I always thought she could be a good pony. Given the right motivation.
