    Hey there, seven or so people who still pay attention when I blog something! Listen up!

    I am about to post a new story. It's not TTHS or Garf, because I'm pretty sure that particular concept is destined for something else. No, I'm going full fanfic on this one. It's a crossover. Not the obvious one where X dies and goes to Equestria or what have you. I'm talking multiple universes, being visited by our protagonists in sequence. I'm talking another universe forming the infrastructure of the whole damn thing. I've assembled a two-man crossovering adventure team consisting of myself and Remnant Drive. Take it away, RD.

    We've been working on the concept on and off for over a year, iterating and iterating until we finally made a breakthrough. Read: I stopped being a lazy bastard and started writing.

    Thanks, RD.

    So if you're interested in a human amnesiac OC who doesn't make you want to tear your eyeballs out, pay attention to me. And if you'd like to be a beta reader for us, well that's even better! We need some of those.

    The long sleep is over. Shamus_Aran has awoken. The Galaxy is at peace.

    Prompts can be fun.

    860 words worth of fun, to be precise. Bazaam.

    Part of a writing excercise in which I and Crash826 traded prompts. The line that started off this particular block-o-text is in bold. You'll know it when you see it.

Cancelled, but preserved for posterity.

Archer is not having a good day. He's recently been knocked unconscious and imprisoned by a Fae race, notorious for their animosity towards humans and each other. Instead of cannibalistic Merfolk or mischievous Fairies, he finds... talking ponies. Who want him to be their "friend."

He is sentenced to remain in a small town they call "Eqshana", until he can learn to "live in harmony" with its inhabitants. Unfortunately, a message from his king, Jove V, has turned his prison sentence into a mission of espionage. Now he must escape these no-doubt insidious creatures, and even more importantly, stay sane doing it. Along the way, he will answer one of the most important questions he has ever faced: Is there really nothing to eat around here besides hay?

Great start, I am still chuckling.

Great Story!

"Let the manliest girl screams" :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

You have earned my track!

#5 · 148w, 4d ago · · · Down the Rabbit Hole ·


Huh........Better than my story..........I feel jealous....(Tracking story.)

Am I dating myself when I admit that I imagined the Mirror System operator speaking in Lily Tomlin's voice?

Anyway. Interesting story, I'm going to give it a follow and see where it goes!

Well done, bro.  This is a gem of a story, with a superb blend of comedy and serious story-telling.  Everypony is kept in character and there are lots of cool little connections you make throughout.

One of those few instant five-star stories, and even rarer instant faves. :pinkiehappy:

Hah, a Human-Equestiran confilct,and this time we dong have guns or such

Thanks very much, everyone! I greatly appreciate the feedback, as well as every single one of this story's followers.

There's a new chapter coming down the pipes, to be put up by tomorrow night. Stay tuned! :pinkiehappy:

Guess we know what comes next!

Archer gets discovered by someone who reads English and the sentence gets worse, and possibly initiates a Human-Equestrian conflict

Friggen troll-kings:trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

So now we have Princess Trollestia and King Jerkve. These two will get along swimmingly.:ajbemused:

#14 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Royal Correspondence ·

Is it just me or does anyone else read "Archer's" dialog in The Snipers voice?

#15 · 148w, 1d ago · · · Royal Correspondence ·

Brilliant! Brilliant! I look forward to more of your splendid story!:twilightsmile:

#16 · 147w, 5d ago · · · Extreme Makeover ·

archer is now going to be spending a lot of time with pinkie

#17 · 147w, 5d ago · · · Extreme Makeover ·

While I enjoyed the new chapter, the conversational, fourth-wall-breaking narrator is not something that I am particularly fond of when not done JUST right.

fisrt? :trollestia: :moustache:

Love the story. Can't wait for the next chapter!:pinkiehappy:

#25 · 147w, 1d ago · · · A Dangerous Game ·

My god that was so fucking hilarious. Im laughing my ass of right now.:rainbowlaugh: Great job, I was wondering when they would find out that we use animal skin. Though dont you think that cat gut bowstrings are a little too far?

#26 · 147w, 1d ago · · · A Dangerous Game ·

>>94472 It's a real thing, and bowstrings are really made from it. Though it's not from cats, it's from cattle. Which might be worse, considering cows talk in Equestria.

#27 · 147w, 1d ago · · · A Dangerous Game ·



#28 · 147w, 1d ago · · · A Dangerous Game ·

>>94507 Haha. That's hilarious. :rainbowlaugh: I'm fine with it if it's cows. I just find it a little disturbing if it's cats.

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

#30 · 146w, 4d ago · · · Robot Pony Attack ·

you can't kill that which isn't bound to the laws of the universe, Archer.


#31 · 146w, 4d ago · · · Robot Pony Attack ·

"Beneath this pink fur there is more than a pony. Beneath this pink fur there is insanity, Mr. Archer, and insanity is explosionproof." :pinkiehappy:

#33 · 146w, 4d ago · · · Robot Pony Attack ·

Pinkie is best steam golem pony..

#34 · 146w, 3d ago · · · Robot Pony Attack ·

>>102325 and if did mange to kill pinkie wouldnt by theory all of her pent-up insanity come forth and manifest itself? :3 i bet it would be and evil pie monster:pinkiehappy:

#35 · 146w, 3d ago · · · Robot Pony Attack ·


As you could guess from the chapter title, this is one of the stupider chapters.

In fact, it's the stupidest chapter I plan on writing, ever. Enjoy.

“Now, really. You weren’t very polite, and it took me fifteen whole minutes to stitch his face back together!”

And that is why this is the best fan fiction.

more stupid chapters:duck: please? for rarity?

OMG:rainbowlaugh:HAHAHAHAHA IT HURTS HAHAHAHAHA:rainbowlaugh:

Epic. Just... Epic. I only wish I could have discovered this story a month from now, so I could thoroughly enjoy the whole thing in one sitting.

Cool communication system, but I notice that they haven't become technomagically advanced enough to make the mirror-to-mirror magic link without the middle-man (er, woman)/operator yet.:trollestia:

A great and funny story.

This was absoltely Hilarious!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: I'm still beaming from "YOUR PASTRIES ARE TOO TINY! ARCHER DEMANDS MORE!" Even if you don't plan on doing more hilarous things of this nature I'd say you most definately have the skill for it!

Pinkie and Archer are the two best characters in this story by far.


Well... If it's for Rarity, I guess.

Excellent, simply EXCELLENT! One of the best fanfics I had the pleasure to read! I can't wait for MOAR!!!

MY GOD! That was fucking hilarious. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

This is a perfectly acceptable reaction to the last line.

#50 · 145w, 5d ago · · · Tales of Awesome ·

This is epic as always. Whenever I get an email saying a new chapter has come out I squeal like a fangirl. DON'T JUDGE ME!:pinkiecrazy:
