I bought a lava lamp at a garage sale. It had a genie in it. I wished to go to Equestria. I forgot that genies are all "tricky" and stuff.
All of my yes....
And with his second wish, it becomes a "Chess Game of the Gods" crossover.
And, knowing Norm, he'd pull an Echo and make the character mute so he can't wish to be turned back.
An intredasting story. I like.
YES!!!! This is so awesome! All my want my good brony! And 10 Spikes for you (R.I.P Spikey)
That's what I always thought FTW meant too for a loooooooong time.
You outta make a sequel.
YES YES YES YES YES
Key phrase for round two:
"I wish I was in canon Equestria." or "I wish I was in the Equestria I want to be in."
Heh, I suspect this is partly a story about the genie trolling him. Run him through the transmogrifier on the way there? I guess it depends on what rules the genie has. >:)
Awesome. Just awesome, and you should be proud. I can't think straight right now, I'm lightheaded from laughing so hard. Because of that, my head and chest are hurting, and I blame you entirely for that. So, congratulations. You rock, and I need some Ibuprofen.
Wish Krillin--er, Spike back to life!
(I used to think that meant f*** the world. Anyone else? Anyone else?)
Yes, unfortunately, yes.
Oh, the craziness was much loved! I think sometimes we have to write fun and silly things, and it just so happens that yours come out awesome and worthy of faving.
So, was the genie specifically Norm the genie? Because that just made it cooler you using that image.
Or my personal favorite genie troll:
"I wish for the wish that is best for me."
I was also confused about FTW.
I thought FTW was a derped version of WTF for the longest time...
>>10155821015582 So did I.
yay, I'm not alone!
..............oooooooooookkkkkk....lets pretend you never wrote this.....imagining THAT place as being real....*shudders*
Lol you made me think Spike is gonna die in SWAG.MOV when it comes out.
good story overall could use a sequal though!!!
I'll let you in on a little secret...
I greatly dislike those .MOV videos.
Still, the story was funny and unique, I'll grant thee an upvote
If the genie is the one in the picture, then I want him to die!
SEQUEL SEQUEL SEQUEL :D please make a sequel i can't wait until it comes out :D
Wish one: Go to Equestria (wrong Equestria, fixed)
Wish two: Spike's back to life as himself (turns into a vampire version of self, awesome)
Wish three: You and Spike go to the Equestria of the current TV show (lands in the middle of the Changeling Hive. Things go down-hill quickly)
SEQUEL REQUIRED! AHHHHHH!
if only he summoned the geinie to say "i wish you were dead"
Question: Is the "giggling-like-a-little-girl-while-skipping-to-the-check-out-counter" something you've actually done?
As soon the line describing Ponyville I exclaimed "Fuuuuuuuuuck!" rather loudly. I was guessing it was going to be FoE, but that is soooo much worse.
And now that I'm done, I have to say, I was surprised by how seriously you took this premise. Sure, it was a bit morbidly lighthearted a few times, but mostly it was serious. Also, this was really good.
Oh my gosh. I can't believe this passed moderation. Or that anyone actually likes it. Thank you all for your comments and compliments. I'm chortling so hard right now. (It's okay, I don't really know what that means either.)
>>10204541020454 Answer: No. I'm glad you caught the more "realistic" vibe. I tried to write it as if it actually happened to a really sarcastic and over-the-top version of myself. Thank you.
>>10152071015207 >>10152371015237 >>10165971016597 >>10157391015739 >>10168751016875 Are you serious? Okay, fine. I'll start on a sequel.
I was also thinking about asking for a sequel, but didn't want to bug you about it. Now I am much happier. :)
Yay i think this calls for.... A PARTY
>>10205881020588 I love your comments, DF. They're always well-written, which is frustratingly rare around here. Please, bug me all you want.
What you described about your writing is what happens to me EVERY SINGLE BUCKING TIME that I try to write. So I know that feel, bro.
In review of the story, I found it easy enough to understand having only watched apple.mov of the pony.mov series, so great job on that note. Your self-insert character was fairly well done, it was very clear he wasn't just some Mary Sue wish-fulfiller. I honestly gasped when *spoiler* died. I thought he might actually be left in that universe to die in for a moment.
Also, there was quite a bit of win in the fact that the genie could break the 4th wall.
...is it bad that I enjoyed every minute of this?
wish 1: to have 10 more wishes
wish 2: that HDD's Spike would be alive and unharmed in a safe spot in his Equestria
wish 2: to be able to summon green flame like Spike's all around me
wish 4: for Norm the Genie to buck himself inside his lamp while I'm in Lauren Faust's Equestria, unless he is called out to grant a wish
wish 5: for everyone to suddenly ignore that I said 'wish 2' a second time
wish 6: the power to bring the genie's lamp with me
wish 7: to be healthy and physically fit by human standards
wish 8: to be able to digest hay (it will be needed)
wish 9: that The Great and Powerful Trixie and the Flim Flam Brothers were not still homeless by the time I arrive at Equestria (no pony deserves that, especially just for being confident)
wish 10: to be able to connect to the internet via a magical computer where ever I am (to read any of shortskirt's story updates while I'm in Equestria)
wish 11: That I would be magically transported unharmed to Lauren Faust's Equestria, one minute from now, for one full day (always set a time limit on the big wish, cause if he is gonna trick you, that's where it will likely be)
wish 12: I wish for 10 more wishes!
Norm has stated that it is possible to wish for more wishes. It is canon. Now can somepony lawyer proof this beyond what I have already done?
YYYEEEAAAAYUUHHHH STICK IT TO THE GENIE!!
I used to think that meant f*** the world. Anyone else? Anyone else?
I'm pretty sure that's what everyone thinks at first.
You should do this but sent to g3 equestrian.
At least it was the.MOV side of that universe and not the Jappleack side.
>>10207851020785 Hello there Ponky!
First, I'd like to thank you for "Space is a Waste" (and Time is a Crime). I had no idea that the person with the strange, seemingly poorly-drawn avatar was actually an extremely talented musician.
Also, you successfully taught me how to pronounce "F'naaa". And for that, I am well pleased, Mr. Moses.
Ponky is a portmanteau? So... Pink+Hockey? Pony+Pinky? Those are the only two combinations I could come up with at this current moment in time whilst looking away from the keyboard in order to observe The Lord of the Rings as it's playing on the massive TV placed before me. I like being able to type without looking at the keyboard. It makes me feel special. Yeah, kill some orcs!
And hey, SS&E didn't actually write Anno Domini. You should correct that.
I believe the original title of his work was "I met a pony in hell (and we kicked ass together)"
And second, anyone knows that the only way to beat a genie's trickiness is by wishing for a lawyer. It is canon, no? Wish for a lawyer, and everything will be made well, in regards to this story!
I actually remember being kind of... frightened/horrified/moderately disgusted/displeased with the whole .MOV series. Just not my cup of tea.
But you actually created a surprisingly good work here, which has made me look towards you within an even more favorable light.
Clearly, the people of SATGF (are you a member of that pre-reading team?) are freakin' fetchin' awesome fetchers.
I'd also like to again say that you have impressed me, both with your impressive voice, and your impressive piano skills, and additionally your impressively humorous writing.
Why, if I got an elaborate and detailed response in the form of a comment from you, I'd probably squee and nerd all over the place. I'm already looping "Space is a Waste" for potentially hours on end, such that it embeds itself into my subcranium permanently, unless of course another catchy song gets stuck in there. I can't help that about myself.
But rest assured, your SS&E references and fast-paced musics will accompany a random stranger for hours on end whilst they use an imaginary avatar to dig holes and build sand castles. And only me, because my older brother refuses to allow me to blare it on my laptop's speakers... I was forced to use earphones! Like, the little uncomfortable buds that always hurt your ears if you leave them in for too long. Which I will inevitably do. Because *squee* it, this song is *squee*ing amazing. Just like... imagine someone with a look for which they could be described as "flabbergasted" and that would almost be me. Other than the fact that for the most part I just have an emotionless visage in order to disguise my true emotions from my playfully abusive brothers.
Live long and daaaaaash appllllllllllles!
So, yeah. If you could acknowledge my compliment when you happen to come across some of this elusive commodity known as a crime, I mean, time, either through a message sent (heaven-sent?) or a comment written (hopefully at a quick pace) would cause me to smile, and admire your dedication to your fans, and respond to your message with another long one most likely. Then after a few exchanges when you tire of my words, the conversations will die down and you'll likely forget about me, and who knows, I may forget about you.
It's a big world, after all. Or, a big fandom, I guess.
But for you, space is a waste except for that area which you occupy. And no time is wasted when you fill it with your artistic talents!
>>13566021356602 Heheh. Leave it to lengthy comments to distract me from a Hamlet paper due in a number of hours.
Poorly drawn avatar!? Good sir, you've pulled an interrobang out of me! How rude! I'm of the opinion that it's a rather well drawn avatar, actually. There's a lot of detail and meaning in that expression. It comes from an even more symbolic picture that I drew in my freshman year of college, based on the style of a very good friend of mine, whose style is in turn based on Tim Burton's, who is one of my very favorite and most inspirational artists. So... harumph. You almost lost me right there.
But you didn't. The word "seemingly" saved you.
Don't take my pronunciation of "f'naaa" as the real deal. Though I've asked a hundred times, Skirts won't tell me how it is properly pronounced. He has suggested that it's a "guttural" sound that might be called forth during battle when tearing out the heart of your enemy... but I toned it down a bit for the song.
Speaking of which, I'm so glad you liked it! I had no intention of anyone but shortskirtsandexplosions himself appreciating it in the least, but I'm glad it has found a place in your earholes.
You are, to my knowledge, the first person to try to un-portmanteau Ponky. I applaud you for that, even though you're not even close.
"Pony in Hell" is one of my favorites from Skirts. At the time this silliness was written, "Anno Domini" was still believed to have been brought into the world by his hand. I haven't changed it--nor do I plan to--because I want to look back at this story in fifteen years and say, "Oh, yeah... the infamous 'League of Extraordinary Gentlecolts' switcharoo... heheh... they sure fooled me."
HotDiggedyDemon's .MOV series is indeed frightening/horrifying/moderately disgusting/displeasant. Which is exactly why I love it. I've always been a fan of the macabre and bizarre, both of which are some of Max Gilardi's specialties. The animation style is just delightful to my eye, and the humor is--sometimes surprisingly--right up my alley. I've quite enjoyed his videos and look forward to their conclusion.
And thank you. I'm glad I could entertain. Although, if I may be so bold, I would suggest that you read some of my more serious works. My most popular is "The Sisters Doo", a story that suggests Daring Do and Ditzy (Derpy) are sisters. My favorite (at the moment) is "Mantles", a darker tale following a grown-up Apple Bloom's journey to becoming Mare Do Well in a post-princess Canterlot.
I am indeed a proud member of Spanish Announce Table Goes First, although I do not preread for "Background Pony" like the rest of them. That story means the world to me, and I hate spoilers. On that note, one other thing you ought to read is our collaboration, "The Secret Life of Big Macintosh". It's a heapload of fun, and my contribution (Chapter Three) is some of my very best work. Jump on that while it's still young. It's gonna be fun to watch it grow.
Nice references to my song. I'm clearly a fan of references. Too much so, probably. :ponkyshrug:
Anyway, glad you enjoyed this hogwash, thanks for complimenting my muzak, and I hope to see your comments on some other examples of my work.
(What a dismal prediction of our correspondence's eventual end. Unfortunately, they're probably fairly accurate. The only Brony I'm sure to remember until the day I die--which I will, sooner than later--is good ol' Skirts himself. "You'll probably forget me, but I will never you...")
Interesting. I don't want to be a Negative Nancy, but sometimes the references might've been laid on a little thick. I guess it'd be hard NOT to do that what with the premise being what it is, though.
People don't respond to comments. You live in a fantasy world!
Btw, yeah, everyone in SATGF is awesome. Well... almost everyone.
P.S. Ponky, don't tell Props I read this. I feel terrible enough already with how long it's taking me to get to Red Wings, and running off reading other SATGF works first makes me look even worse. That's not how it happened, I swear.
>>13905111390511 Heheh! Why the heck would you read this garbage out of all my shtuff? Oh... probably because I read your comedy... hmm...
Well, read "Sisters Doo" instead, whenever you can. And tell me which of your fics is the "least terrible", iyo. :ponkywink: I'll be sure to read it.
And don't worry, I haven't gotten to Red Wings yet either! :ponkysheepish: I'm about midway through the first chapter as I type, but I keep getting distracted. Silly Ponky...
I read this so I could read the sequel because of something in the description of the sequel. I have not yet gotten to the sequel.
And I guess my least terrible is probably either Birds/Bees (because people seem to like it) or When You Fall (because I didn't feel as much crushing shame immediately after clicking submit). Avoid Never Enough Pie (incredibly flat and lame) and the 4chan... thing (awful beyond words), and then the rest of my garbage is at least digestible. Late reply is late.
>>13944261394426 The sequel's pretty good, I guess... it has some funny moments. I think. :ponkyshrug:
Will read more of your work! Whether you like it or not, I really like your style and will be sure to check those out.
That was awesome.
