Two new Twilight Comedy/Random stories in a row :rainbowderp:, man I'm going to laugh today :rainbowlaugh:

#2 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

I just love how you do these cutie marks to indicate who's talking!

#3 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

This is pretty nice. I like it.

#4 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Cool, Asthetic's only one shot since Sparkle's Law!

#5 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

:rainbowderp:

#6 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

ok um it was all um what :pinkiegasp::facehoof:

#7 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

I, uhhhh... what!? :derpyderp2:

“Thanks, Rarity. I’m really glad you came.”

The faintest hint of a flush crept into Rarity’s cheeks as Twilight scurried away, and she coughed daintily.

Yes. Well. Quite.

:rainbowlaugh: I loved that bit

Overall this was brilliant, a sheer level of :rainbowhuh: and :pinkiecrazy: all the way through.

On a side note if you don't mind... WHERE IS THE IMMORTAL GAME!?!? :flutterrage:

#8 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

That... that was amazing.

#9 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Twilight being the epitome of Bruce Willis...well, I better put this one in my read later list! :pinkiehappy:

Silver out!

#10 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

I love the cover picture.

EDIT after reading: Eh, it was ok. I would assume that it is much funnier if you watch Die Hard before hand.

#11 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

That was AMAZING!! :rainbowlaugh:

Though I have to admit, every time there's a hostage situation, I can't stop but keep thinking this one line: shoot the hostage. Even though that had no applicable scenario here.

Hmm... just needs music, too.

I also just noticed that I have your other two stories on 'Read Later'.

#12 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Yippie kai :yay:, motherbucker. :twilightangry2:

#13 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Manga/anime levels of power-ups and chaos ensues...

I recognize 'Star Swirl's Ludicral Improbabilitinator' from Madness Combat with its 'Improbability Drive'.  Have you watched that flash?

#14 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

This wasn't just awesome. It wasn't just amazing.

It was glorious.

#15 · 107w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

Twi'd the Hardest!

It's been quite a day for Twilight in hero stories. Can't say I'm not happy about that!

Cool action, wonderful imagination and messed up spells!

Though you didn't have her crawling through any ventilation shafts. You ruined the whole thing! Tell Trixie to start over, with more feeling!

Let's hope Twilight doesn't end this story... With a Vengeance!

#16 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

lol the ending...

#17 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

"Twi Harder"

I GET IT!

#19 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Oh that was awesome.

But the mood seemed inappropriately dark at times and when those periods changed to comedy suddenly, it was a little jarring. But great story anyway.

#20 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

Ha ha, awesome sauce. Twilight is definitely the the best action pony! To the library!

#21 · 107w, 4d ago · · ·

That was bucking epic. And hey, I got to read about Twilight being awesome without watching her get mind raped this time. :yay:

#22 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

I will read this... sometime...

Sounds cool.

#23 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

That was... interesting. A bit of laughs here and there, but honestly, the whole technological shenanigans felt really off. I mean, on an enviroment that's all magic and mythic creatures, suddenly having a cyborg with a chainsaw for a tail, missiles and jetpacks was kind of confusing. Maybe I didn't completely get the Ludicral Improbabilitinator's effect, but I think it would have been better if you had just stuck to purely magical - big bladed spikes on the dragon tail, magical wings on the minotaurs, magical energy condensed into a missile. That kinda thing

#24 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>990819 The function of Star Swirl's Ludicral Improbabilitinator is to make everything possible more epic. Technology that should not exist comes out of freaking nowhere, minions poof into existence at the drop of a hat. Weapons will appear from hammer space for no adequately explained reason. Star Swirl developed the spell by studying the effects of chaos magic itself. He researched all known accounts of Discord's magic and eventually developed the time travel spell to take samples of the energy directly from one of his attacks. It essentially dictates that the odds of anything happening are as close to 100% as possible. This can have both positive and negative effects as the hero will make death-defying escapes but will also be presented with near impossible challenges. The use of the spell was banned after Star Swirl used it to save the kingdom from an alliance of griffons and dragons only to follow up by stealing the royal regalia from a heavily guarded vault.

Oh. My. God. Ahahahahaha.

AND THAT ENDING..

#26 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Very creative, very original, very awesome. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#27 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Ludicral Improbabilitinator

I still have absolutely no idea what this does.:twilightsheepish:

#28 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>991558

It's like the infinite improbability drive of action movies, in my opinion.

#29 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Awwww yeah. This was one hell of a good read. I love the final twist, very well done. While I expected it to be a misunderstanding/trick/joke (at the point everyone was really damn bored being held hostage), I did not see it coming that the spells on Twi would work so... well. :pinkiecrazy:

Fantastic story. Have all me Favs.

#30 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

have my fav.

The only reason I read this is because of that amazing pun in the description, but i stayed for the awesome story

Good work!

#31 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

Oh wow, that was fantastic!

Take my thumbs, an entry on my user page (wall of awesome oneshots), and all of my love.

#32 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>991730 Pretty much. As soon as I saw this, I knew that some wacky shit was going to go down.

#33 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

You had me at "Twi harder" :pinkiehappy:

#34 · 107w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

This is the first comedy of yours I've read, and a wonderful one at that.  I'm glad to see that you're not a one tricky pony of war! :trixieshiftright:

:raritydespair: But, darling, "begun" simply can never be used as a verb.  I do wish you'd take me up on my grammar pre-reading offer sometime, as I have begun to notice a trend that began in TIG.

Primary: The Immortal Game - 21

Status: Second Stage Edits (That means the others. This will take awhile.)

#36 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>992133

Ah I see, thanks, really I just wanted to know what stage it was at since it hadn't updated in so long :twilightsmile:

#37 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>992205 You can check that on AestheticB's page, under the blog-post. I just copied it from there.:raritywink:

#38 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>992278

Oh, I must've missed that post somehow :derpytongue2:

#39 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>989995

First time I've audibly laughed at a joke on the internet in weeks. Kudos.

That story was amazing. I enjoyed every second of it. I thought from the title it'd be a dumb joke story, but it was absolutely amazing. The cutie mark transitions were brilliant, and the entirety of the story was brilliantly written.

By the way, you're clearly a brit. Caught you on "maths".

#40 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

O.O <==click

Let's make a movie out of this:pinkiehappy:

#41 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

I'm a little disappointed that Twilight's motivation at the end was 'the spell's making me do it' and not 'this is what you get for :yay:ing with my head like that'.  It's what I'd do.

#42 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

So AWESOME:rainbowkiss:

#43 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>990356

Where the fuck did you get that GIF?

Tell me. TELL ME NOW!

#44 · 107w, 3d ago · · ·

>>994352 Its from a season three song. My friend made it for me.

#45 · 107w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

>>992342

Bitch please. He's Canadian.

#46 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

I just spent five minutes looking for the first part you :trollestia:

*Goes on to read.*

EDIT: That ending... Funny but I think you should have hinted she's a bit happy to conform to that paradigm because they deserved it.

#47 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Your ability to accurately detail and plan action scenes in an engaging manner is the same as always.

Side note: "And the paradigm says that even heroes go bad"  Everyone knows actions heroes go rogue

#48 · 106w, 6d ago · · ·

What the... have I just read.

#49 · 106w, 4d ago · · ·

Best action comedy ever! And yes, action heroes do go rouge! :rainbowlaugh:

The cyborg/chainsaw dragon, jetpack-wearing Manticores and the missile launcher-wielding Changelings did it for me! And that ending! :rainbowlaugh:

Silver out!

#50 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

I can't read this story for one sole reason, I have to read Twi Hard first, I can't start reading in the middle of a series, especially when it is based off of the awesome Die Hard series even if only loosely based off of it.
