    Chap. 6 of "Foreigner" Upcoming, But—

    I had hoped:

         When starting this whole Foreigner project that I'd be able to squeeze it into six chapters and 40,000 words.  I mean, yes, the phrase "possible epilogue" appears in my notes, but I had dismissed them as the ravings of a madman.

         Until I found myself staring at a chapter six that was aiming toward 10,000 words all on its own.  

         So yes, chapter six should be up and ready for reading once the spackle and paint dries—in the next 12 hours, let's say—and while it will likely push the story to the 40K mark, it won't actually end the thing.  I'll try to keep the thrice-dreaded epilogue to under 5K words and try to get it out by next Thursday, but it might just take me two weeks all on its own if it decides to be finicky.

         I remain optimistic, though.  After all, what could possibly go wrong?  :pinkiehappy:

    My One Thought on "Rainbow Rocks"

    The theremin:

         Is the perfect instrument for Twilight Sparkle.  I mean, it's a mess of tubes and wires, it sounds peculiar, and you don't need fingers to play it.  I'd give any movie with a theremin joke a passing grade, but yeah, while I thought the first movie was OK, this one's a bit better than that.

    Some Rewriting on "Foreigner"

    Folks who:

         Read chapter 4 of Foreigner the day I posted it should know that, following a lovely suggestion from OneOverTwo, I added a couple paragraphs to the scene where Applejack bucks the debris away to reveal the bit of the mosaic underneath.  They're dealing with rocks, after all, and with Pinkie sitting right there, it was downright unnatural that AJ didn't consult with the rock farmer's daughter about the proper spot to kick.  So now she does.  :pinkiehappy:

Yes, the black and white pegasus who steps out of the glowing mirror seems very nice, but Pinkie's twitches tell her that this is her evil twin.  And when Pinkie makes her own journey through the mirror to meet even more Pinkies and even more Pies, well, that just means more fun!  Doesn't it?

I've been haphazardly planning this since March 12, 2011, the day my story "Pinkie Pie's Evil Twin" went up on Equestria Daily.  A year and a half later, a little rewriting has turned it into the first chapter here, and the rest will follow in due course.  Twelve chapters, maybe?  I guess we'll all find out together!

Yes, but who's working in the kitchen at that restaurant?  Besides, if Pinkie doesn't do six impossible things of a morning, who does?

We'll try to fit:

>>1101397

My plan is:

     A chapter every 10 days or so.  So look for Chapter Three today or tomorrow!

                          Mike

#20 · 113w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

Yeah:

     Looks like a chapter every ten days is doable.  So, chapter four on or about August 28th!

"All ponies are allowed to want things!  And they're all allowed to do everything reasonable to get what they want, too!"

That sounds... oddly motivational, actually.

Great story, by the way. I can't wait to see all the worlds you create! And just who is this Pinkie Prime, and what are her intentions? :trixieshiftright:

#22 · 113w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

Deft avoidance of Cadence's duties.  Well done.

#23 · 113w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1109643 Cadance is an ambassador, I think. She's not an alicorn, she's a unicorn with wings.

#24 · 113w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1109694 Ah, not an alacorn, a mutie.

#25 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1109694

>>1109950

When I was learning mythology:

     I only ever heard the word "alicorn" used to describe the substance that a unicorn's horn was made from.  And since the word has never actually appeared in any episodes of FiM, I don't use it, either.  A winged unicorn is just called a winged unicorn in my stuff.  :eeyup:

                                  Mike

#26 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1112242 I call them that because it's what they're usually called. Celestia is supposed to be all three types of pony in one. Cadance, I believe, lacks the earth pony strength and probably can't fly well either (we only see her glide, I think). So she's just a unicorn who happens to have wings. She's not otherwise special, like Luna and Celestia.

#28 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

Mr. AugieDog, your story is vey fascinating and original, favorited and tracked!

:twilightsmile:

#29 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1112255

For my part:

     I'm holding fast to the theory I presented in my story The Birth of Harmony that Cadance is Equestria's "death goddess," the psychopomp who carries the souls of the dead to the afterlife.  However, I'm also predicting that this theory will become "canon fodder" approximately fifteen seconds into season 3...  :raritywink:

#31 · 113w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

>>1112242 Alacorn, not to be confused with alicorn, is Latin, and literally translates as "wings, horn."  But, to each his own.

#32 · 113w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

Since we heard there was a fire at the beginning of the story, I'm guessing Pinkie Prime has something to do with it... Urgh, just what is this "party" she's plannign?!:raritydespair:

#33 · 113w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3: Plinky Pie ·

Dear, I'll be perfectly honest. Pinkie Prime scares me, I have a feeling something sad/dark is going to happen and I'm fearful. Either way, the story is wonderful so far and I can't wait to see more. :duck:

#34 · 112w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2: Pinkie Prime ·

Because why have one Pinkie when you can have an infinite number of Pinkie Pies!?!?!

     Revealed!  But don't fear!  Pinkie's here!

Chapter Four:

     Hit the 5,000 word mark on schedule yesterday, so if all goes well, I should have its last scene done this weekend, do edits and clean-ups on Monday, then get it posted here Tuesday.  If all goes well...  :twilightsmile:

#38 · 112w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

I wonder if:

     This is gonna be like my previous big story, "Half the Day is Night," where each succeeding chapter kept getting longer and longer till the last one was almost as long as the first five combined?

     Anyway, here's 4.  Let's say another 10 days or so for 5: Sept. 8th, we'll call it.

                           Mike

#39 · 112w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

This is gonna be gooooood

#40 · 112w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

Well i can see where this is going

#41 · 112w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1170228

My guess is:

     It's going where no Pinkie has gone before.  But that's just a guess.

                                Mike

#42 · 112w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1169845

I sure hope so!  :twilightsmile:

                         Mike

#44 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

Pinkie... What have you done now? Is what I asked in the first chapter. But now, I'll let this story take it's due course. I mean after all it's getting good. One Question though, (Big Power Rangers/Super Sentai Nerd Alert) Are we going to see a pony ranger version of Pinkie? Because that would be really, Really cool.

#45 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

I'm loving the progression of this story, and it seems that Primey does go evil on everypony. It seems like you alluded to her somehow damaging our ponyville. I can't wait to see how this continues to develop. Waiting with baited breath dear :raritystarry:

#46 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1170228 I think I can too. Can you see the alicorn Nightmare Party Prime defeated by the Pinkies of Harmony?

#47 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1173316 Honestly i think Pin Qi Khan was Prime's main objective. But the thing is the real pinkie is the only one with the names Pinkie and Pie in her name so she is actually the ultimate pinkie. Besides i think that the one ability that she has other than the pinkie sense that the others dont have is her "go anywhere" ability. that may give her an advantage when prime tries to take over.

#48 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1173568 Actually, I somehow forgot about that. Not sure if what I'm saying next is where you were going with this, but if Primey got in a fight with Real Pinkie Pie, Primey would be an idiot: Pinkie would evade every attack, teleport randomly, and blast her away with the Party Cannon, whether or not she realizes it's a fight.

#49 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1173631 If Primey is what she claims to be then she might be able to turn all of the others evil which is why it is going to be a problem. And like dash said there were more than one alicorn Pinkie out there so that power may be doubled.

The only problem i have with this story is that it is somewhat of a paradox because it goes against and yet still follows the string theory. It is said that  there are an infinite number of universes and in which every possibility is possible. So far it seems that it is following it but due to the string theory, but there should be universes where there are whole planets inhabited by nothing but Pinkies all of them exactly the same as the real pinkie the only difference is that they are the the only ones there. but it also goes along with it because the mirrors only go to worlds that have a pinkie.

But that means there is a chance that pinkie goes to a world where this already happened and then what?

#50 · 112w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 4: Pin Qi Khan ·

>>1172266

Alas:

     No Pinkie Power Ranger is scheduled to appear among our main characters.  She might be in the background, though--I mean, there's an infinite number of them, right?

>>1170667

     And I should probably make it clear, too, that we won't actually be visiting the starship Equipoise or anything like that, either.  Just so folks don't get any false hopes that Space Captain Pinkie Pie will be showing up.  After all, that's a completely different fic.

>>1172721

     Structurally, the next chapter will be the halfway point--if I end up following my notes--so nine chapters all told.

>>1173631

>>1173662

     The word "pinkpocalypse" just popped into my head...   :pinkiehappy:
