Humans.

Truth or myth? Ancient lost civilization or just an old pony's tale?

No pony has ever seen one, and most haven't even heard of them. But Lyra knows that these wonderful creatures are more than just old legends, and she's going to find out... and possibly drive her roommate insane in the process.

I like where this is going. I want more! Here take some stars I can't hold all of them!

#2 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Is it a bad thing that, when she described her dream, the first thing I thought of was the scene with Sheik from The Ocarina of Time? Great writing, though, and a fun take on Lyra and Bon-bon's relationship (I assume they aren't dating in this one, correct?)!

#3 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

This is seriously good. :pinkiehappy: I want more

#4 · 148w, 1d ago · 5 · · Music and Magic ·

So instead of Agent Mulder (I want to believe) and Agent Scully, we have Agent Lyra and Agent Bon-Bon.

This could prove to be interesting. I'll give it a follow!

#5 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

COOL! i look forward to reading more!

(most creative comment ever)

#6 · 148w, 1d ago · 2 · · Music and Magic ·

Humans? Feh, ponies still believe in that myth?

#7 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

And then the humans transport to Equestria and Lyra gives Bon-Bon a "I told you so" face and the starts a revolution against Celestia with her human army. THE END :pinkiehappy:

#8 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Kinda like the fic I'm doing. Except I have Lyra searching out old myths on humans, and eventually stumbling accross a ruin on one of her expeditions. Going into the ruin, and after some adventures there, Lyra finds a chamber filled with thousands of humans in cryogenic suspension.

#9 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

I like this story and Nightgazer your story sounds pretty cool.

#10 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

XD This seems to be quite interesting! (Are you making fun of Lyra and her short attention span with the fork? XD Nice.)

#11 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Aw....that cover art makes my eyes leak.

#12 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

You have my attention. I demand more!:raritydespair:

Follow your dreams Lyra!  You just gotta keep believing, and sooner or later your dreams will come true! :twilightsmile:

Love it!  I absolutely love the idea shaping up right here.  Heh, it's honestly too easy to envision a gigantic, exaggerated grin on my favorite ocean green unicorns lips at finally not only getting her cutie mark, but learning to control magic.  Kind of wondering where you're planning on taking it though, seeing as it could either go on about how Lyra uncovers something ground breaking and slowly pieces together a secret that's been hidden in the form of pieces and clues spread all across Equestria (just like Nicholas Cage did! :pinkiehappy:) or she just drives Bon Bon up the wall crazy with her obsession.

Either way, I'm following this!

As a Cryptozoologist (someone who studies Cryptozoology;the study of unknown animals like Bigfoot and Loch Ness Monster) I am highly interested to see where this goes.

#17 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

>>72655

they live in the same house... they're probably married

#18 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

This is very interesting indeed! But make sure you KNOW where your going on with this before continuing...this kind of thing can have many road blocks you need to deal with...good luck! :ajsmug:

#19 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Alright! Stand back everyone, I am about to blow your minds with this amazingly original comment. *clears throat* :fluttershyouch::fluttershbad::flutterrage:MMMMMMMMOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

#20 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

If this is going to be one of those humans in Equestria stories, please don't let it be like most of the rest where two species overcome their differences in 5 minutes. :trixieshiftleft:

#21 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

What's here is pretty darn good, but here's the big question: how focused will this be? Will Lyra's quest for humanity be the sole plot thread, or there be half a dozen other weaving in and out of the story? 'Cause a problem I've noticed popping up in fics lately is that they loose focus of the main plot in favor of jokes and whatnot. Or perhaps it's not all that prevalent a problem at all? In either case, it's something to be avoided.

*shrugs* Says "roommates" in the description and it's not tagged as romance, so I think not. I'd be fine with it either way, though.

#23 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

I like it. Looking forward to Pt. 2.

#24 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

This is so full of win it deserves 6 STARS :eeyup:

#25 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

At first, the introduction of the story of Lyra’s Cutie Nark confused me :applejackconfused: because I didn’t know how this was suppose to connect with the story of finding humans. But then you connected Lyra’s love for music with humans, and I thought that was really clever.

#26 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

I am intrigued!

#27 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

A very strong opening.  I really liked how you tied her interest in humans to her cutie mark and it was a good cutie mark origin story.  Most Ponies, I expect, have a relatively calm one like that, important to them, but not awe inspiring.

Anyway, I'll be following this.  Good job.

#28 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

I like it. I wonder, will you make it so that human DO, or at least DID, exist? Or will the story mainly feature Lyra's foalish, yet comedic, attempts to prove their existence?? I'm very intrigued in what will happen :pinkiehappy: :eeyup:

#29 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Great.

#30 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Believable. Plus, decent writing style. Tracking.

#31 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

This has caught my attention.

I shall be tracking and faving this grand story!

#32 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Most enjoyable, and a wonderful way to dovetail cutie mark and anthropological obsession. Also:

#34 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

More of this please. SO much more of this.

#35 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Wy oh why can't i hold all hese stars, could you take some of my hands?

#36 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Music and Magic ·

DOHOHOHOHO

Humans...

Next you will be saying that the sun and moon move by themselves:rainbowlaugh:

Good Story so far, I'll give it 4.5 cuz it entertained me

LISTEN TO THE MAN. THIS HAS CROSSOVER POTENTIAL.

But anyhow, surely Bon-bon has heard of monkeys? I mean Fluttershy even mentions monkeys when fantasizing about the GGG. I mean unless in the Ponyverse, primates are some obscure mammals noone ever talks about, like what we do with most rodents.

#38 · 148w, 23h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

you sir... you sir have a good thing going on at the moment, keep it up

>>72769 BEST. STORY PLOT. EVER.:flutterrage:

#42 · 148w, 13h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Most of the instruments had already been taken. So much for drums, Lyra thought. Wandering around the music room, between other young unicorns who were already trying out their new instruments, Heartstrings finally took a closer look at the lyre. No way, that one would definitely be too hard…

First sentence Lyra, second sentence Heartstrings, just a little slip-up there, nothing too major, easy fix.

I'll just say it now. I love this story, I think it flows perfectly together, with perfect transition and pace, but I'm not really a critic, so I can't think of anything else to say that will make me seem intelligent, haha.

Dialogue punctuation is a bit different then what I was taught, not sure if it's different from place to place, but I'm still eight years into grade school, so don't take whatever I say too seriously, alright? I'm not an expert at anything, lol.

#43 · 148w, 11h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

It just rips me in half that ponies dont know about humans. They think its a myth just like we think they are a myth. I actually think there is ponys in another dimension. You never know...:derpytongue2:

#44 · 148w, 11h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

>>72655 I thought the exact same thing

#45 · 148w, 11h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Her real name was Lyra, but as she said earlier in the same flashback, she used to go by Hearstrings. So that wasn't a slip-up so much as just her flip-flopping on names in her own mind.

#46 · 148w, 11h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Oh I'm definitely looking forward to more of this story! Keep em coming! :pinkiehappy:

#47 · 148w, 11h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Vincent! Stop the presses! Make sure you get this in.

Keep this up, you have successfully managed to  catch my interest, not an easy feat...Oh look, a chair!

5 stars, darling :raritywink:

#48 · 148w, 10h ago · 2 · · Music and Magic ·

Poor Bon-Bon, having to endure Lyra's crackpot theories about mythical bipeds and their opposable thumbs, it must be very taxing.  That filly really needs to get some professional help.

#49 · 148w, 10h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

Excellent, I think I'll definitely watch you and follow this story. Great story, post soon :P I can't wait.

#50 · 148w, 9h ago · · · Music and Magic ·

I have not yet seen a fanfic surrounding Lyra's fascination with humans. I've seen it referenced, some important parts of a story surrounding it, but not a whole story dedicated to her obsession. I'm definitely going to enjoy this! :pinkiehappy:
