    Dragon's Notebook: Scaled Tower Outline Complete

    The rewrite of one of my most popular stories is almost set to begin production. Just need to start chapter 1.

    New Short Description:

    An accident prompts Spike to do the unthinkable and claim lives in order to protect the one he loves from danger... before his protective instincts  involve his friends.

    New Long Description:

    People hurt themselves and in turn they learn from their mistakes. To Spike, Rarity seems insistent to keep learning from the same mistakes. An accident claims the life of a public figure and known only to Spike, he is to blame. This rattles his mind until he makes a resolution to  protect Rarity... and his friends from themselves and the ponies who wish to harm them.

    The only question plaguing Spike's mind is: How will this end?

    Rewrite of the Dragon's Notebook, crossover of Death Note.

    ARBY'S ADVENTURES IN EDMONTON PART 2

    STORY TIME PART 2:

    I almost died last night. Twice.

    So I wake up at 1 am and really, really, REALLY want a Junior Chicken. Or just something with chicken; McDonalds was just the first suggestion Geoff Twist and Jon, and Danielle Toth also wanted beer. So being me, I instantly search for a 24 hour liquor store and find one that closes at 2 am, just down the block from a 24 hour McDonalds. 30 minute bike ride so I gear up and hop on my bike and depart. It's such a swell night, cool breeze, lovely night life in the city. Five to ten minutes later I arrive at a bridge and cross it as it means I've found my turning point. I proceed further ahead, ignoring the streets that may as well be called "Murder Ave." and pedal on forward.

    In a little while I wind up seeing the Westmount Centre, my destination and just as I pedal towards the sidewalk, some guys jump out of the bushes to scare me, I guess. I twist the handlebars to the side and instead of gliding onto the sidewalk from the ramp I slam into the curb and hit someone's foot, I suppose. Because he immediately turned into Gary Busey and flipped his shit, crying like a little bitch about his fucking toe or something. All five draw knives and I'm immediately like "oshit im gonna die lol" and I immediately start sprinting with the Furious Five hot on my ass like America and Oil.

    Continuing around the block, I manage to ignore the constant "Fuck you, nigga" that the hooligans continued to spit into the air and manage to get back to my bike that nobody in the Heist Squad decided to keep watch of. I hop on it and pedal forward once more, arriving at Westmount in one piece, well away from the League of Super Evil.

    I arrived at the Liquor Depot at 1:50, just shortly before closing and purchased the Coors Light, no problemo. Just a minute away was the McDonalds where I ordered three Junior Chicken's, a 6-pc Chicken McNugget and two large Fry. Ten minutes later, I have my food and I departed the McDonalds, ready to return home. I leave Westmount and immediately regret taking the same route back.

    The reason being is that the Furious Five had apparently spent half an hour level-grinding because they had gained the ability to summon bicycles of their own. Feeling my inner Joseph Gordon-Levitt kick in, I immediately booked it like it was Premium Rush and Agent Monday was hot on my ass. All the way back to the bridge on St. Albert Trail, rather than cross like a reasonable person I curved to the right and went down the off-ramp onto the highway. Once I cleared rail, I took a sharp left through traffic, barely missing a truck from behind as well as a semi. Getting to the barrier in the centre, I threw my bike over the rail, still on an adrenaline high. Like Jason Statham himself, I began biking against traffic in the centre of the lane until the intersection where I curved to the left, barely missing another car and my adrenaline high died off. Just in time too because it was a clear four minutes home, no Furious Five in sight and warm McDonalds, sweating up my back like a high school locker room.

    I totally fucking earned my Junior Chicken and I don't give a shit what any of you say.

    ARBY'S ADVENTURES IN EDMONTON

    STORY TIME

    So I go to leave home so I can do my orientation at Red Robin. Leave, get on right bus, get off at right stop. Here's where things get fun. I was told that I can take the 2 down to the university bus stop and walk the two blocks to Red Robin. My phone also says "take the 2" because apparently it's a "20 minute ride". I get on the 2 and then the adventure begins.

    Half an hour later, when I'm in the middle of fucking Chinatown do I realize I boarded the wrong bus... and I'm twice the length away from work than I am home. It only took some like shanghai buildings and a shitton of Chinese restaurants to clue me in. Asking the bus driver what the shit, he tells me that it's the "right bus, wrong direction". I wound up in Clairview, Edmonton.

    The driver then tells me to take the train; be at my destination in 10 minutes. I agree, board the train right there. Nervous as fuck as 9 am had passed henceforth I missed the start of my orientation at work. Phone resetting and not working, asking ol' Danielle Toth for help was goddamn impossible so I kept trying as the train took me downtown: I saw the stadium; I saw industrial buildings; I saw other trains.

    Eventually, I wound up at Central Station and this would be the point in the film where the main protagonist can't handle the shit and we have the quiet drama scene. Not me. I immediately broke down when the trains had left and the civilians cleared the area leaving me alone on the platform. I fell to the ground, repeatedly slamming my finger on the button to call for information and I'm sitting there, hoping I'll be alone and have quick help. HAHA NOPE the speakers blare out "HI PRESS 1 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO..." and I'm sitting there going "oh shit there is no numpad". It finally tells me to wait to speak to a live representative and starts blaring elevator music; just as two trains and a metric fuckton of civilians converge on me like a swarm of locusts. All of a sudden, "HI HOW MAY I HELP YOU?" blares out of the speakers and I'm pressed right against the directory, whispering into the mic, "I don't know where I am". "What?" she asks, my soothing, sultry tone (not really) too low. After five more tries, I finally burst out crying, "I NEED HELP BECAUSE I'M LOST AND I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO" as about two hundred people eye this grown, 19-year-old man sobbing on the floor like Bane after Batman ruined his mask.

    After a while, I collect myself and tell her my destination and see that I'm at Central Station. Finally, she tells me that I just need to go to the street, go west and look for a hotel with a bus stop to board the 8 and that'll take me where I wanna go. I leave, get out, look to the left... and I see the exact bus stop where I got on the wrong bus. A full, full grating hour later, I had returned to where the madness had started.

    tl;dr, fuck mobile devices, you wind up in Chinatown.

    Totally made my orientation just fine, though. Thanks for your time.

Invading his life in the form of shackles and chains, tragedy strikes as Spike the Dragon is sentenced to imprisonment in the dreaded prison of the dragons, Castle Bahamut, until further notice.

Regardless of having been the victim of a miscarriage of justice, Spike has no time to shed tears as a deadly conspiracy inside the prison pins him as the target . . . but who is the one that framed him, and why?

Oh man, so you finally moved from fanfiction to this place. Awesome.

>>2111917 Fanfiction is sort of my testing grounds. Post there, get reviews, make edits, keep in mind for the future.

Here is the final frontier for my fanfiction. :o

>>2111940

Yeah, i can tell. You never get many comments on fanfiction as you get in here, in fimfiction.

This is a cool sounding premise. Definitely reading this later.

Also the cover art is great.

It kinda sounds like Deadman Wonderland with just the description, I'll give it a read later.

I just read this on fanfiction.

This is just like Deadman's wonderland,

Mass effect 2, and Prison Break. Faved.

Everypony here is saying its just like Deadman Wonderland(good anime), although actually seeing Spike here makes it hard to believe that it's not him. No predictions(yet). What does the title mean?(sounds Japanese)

>>2115536 Bahamut is the dragon god in most Final Fantasy games.

>>2116640

Not the title of the story(I thought you got that from the iPhone game), I meant the title of the chapter.

>>2117012 Oh.

Three meanings: 1) dragon man, 2) far-reaching man, or 3) imperial man.

Personally, when everything is said and done,

and Spike proves he's  innocent. He should ram a foot

up the Mane 6, Celestia, & Shining Armor's asses.

Once again you have me hooked. After reading the list of victims I know he didn't do it, seems like its someone with an agenda, but did they plan to put the blame on Spike or was it just a coincidence that the dragon had purple scales and green spikes? The way you describe it, Bahamut doesn't sound as bad as I thought it would be. (prediction, It's gonna be worse than I thought)

If your not busy, can you draw and color the dragons of this story for my imagination? I will say that if Spike is gonna survive than there is only one word for that: ADAPT

I have decided my next course of action as well as yours, as I wish to speak with you, the other Element bearers, as well as Spike as soon as possible.

>>2115536 its more like dat 1 naruto movie Blood Prison

>>2120901 Well, someone got my inspiration. That's two people.

>>2121506 Make that three people.:moustache:

Another chapter so soon? Glad to see that my predictions are still as sharp as ever(by the way it's pronounced Shining Armor). Surprised Spike was just arrested for suspicion to commit murder instead of the actual murders(I guess the victims weren't important enough when the Princesses life was in danger), also seems wrong to accuse Spike just because of the color of his scales(that's racist). I mean it's not like hes the only dragon in the world with that color scheme, hell for all we know that could have been Spike's father who committed those crimes. Spikes gonna have to grow up fast if he's ever hoping to survive this place.(still wished I had pics of the cast). Are we gonna see what the Mane 6 are doing while Spike's in prison? I think its too early for a prediction but I think the warden and this other dragon are involved with Spike's frame up.

>>2124761 The Canadian/British spelling is "armour," and I'm going to call him that.

And no, each chapter starts with a flashback elaborating on Spike's conviction and ends with the present in the prison. The Mane 6 are never shown in the present.

#19 · 88w, 5d ago · · · -3- Retreat ·

Now we know why Spike, curious as to what they need him for? Maybe use his power to take over Equestria?

#20 · 88w, 5d ago · · · -3- Retreat ·

>>2129244 ohshitohshitohshit

i forgot to update it with the flashback

#21 · 88w, 5d ago · · · -3- Retreat ·

>>2129275

Yeah, I was wondering why there wasn't a flash back when you said there would be on in every chapter?

#22 · 88w, 5d ago · · · -3- Retreat ·

A Spike story from the author of the "Notebook" stories? I'm in. Good work so far. Can't wait to find out why Spike's in there in the first place, and how this whole thing turns out.

This is getting good real good, but im more curious why there are pony guards and a dragon prison?

Excuse me while I go back to chapter three to read the flashback you left out....................... Okay now on to this chapter. I was wondering after the last few chapters, what are the requirements to get out of prison?(also how long is Spikes sentence?)

I bet if Phoenix Wright was Spikes attorney he wouldn't be in this situation.

On the night of 23rd of November, 1003 ANMR,

I'm guessing that the letters mean After Nightmare Moon's Return. If thats the case then the date would be 23rd of November, 003 AMNR.

After a week Spike is already big dragon on campus(I approve)

And it looks like I was right again when it came that the Warden is responsible for Spikes frame up.

I knew that Spikes plan was going to backfire and now he's suffering the consequences of leadership.

>>2139035 That was supposed to say "ANMB," for Nightmare Moon's banishment. :o

Specifically, a week and two days.

But yeah, pretty spot on.

>>2139035 Also: I believe I stated both; the requirements:

1) Warden deems the dragon fit for return to his/her nation, (which could be thousands of years or five days) or

2) The leader of the nation/the one who gave out the sentence must revoke the dragon's sentence for whatever reason, (new evidence may prove him innocent/the one whom sentenced may change his/her mind) or

3) The dragon's family must request it given that they have permission (they forgive him and want him back/etc.).

And again, the sentence is indefinite.

>>2139644

Right I remember the rules. It's the first one that I want more detail. What does a dragon have to do to prove to the Warden that their fit to be released?

>>2139755 Good behavior generally helps... and that's pretty much it. Go a few months or so  displaying no violent tendencies or escape attempts and completely cooperate with the guards and Warden and whatnot, and they'll be released after testing and whatnot.

>>2139814

Well I guess that's not going to happen after what Spike did,(should have played ball) and what type of testing we talking about

>>2139820 Just mental, psychological stuff to see if they're mentally prepared for the world. Spike will just never reach that point where they get a chance to test him.

Is the prologue the guy that framed Spike, or is that somewhere after future events in the story? Or are you gonna reveal that later on?

>>2144261 Well of course I'm gonna reveal it later on. :o

>>2144406

Sooooooo, you left it a mystery?

>>2144424 Duuuuh. It'll be resolved sometime, but for now, it's a mystery.

>>2144766

Thanks for the explanation. I love mysteries, but I still get cnfused. Keep up the good work, love the story. It deserves more views and likes.

This story seriously needs more reviews. It is sooo good!

#37 · 83w, 6d ago · 3 · · -5- Countdown ·

Spike just can't catch a break.

The Judicial system of Equestria is unfair, bias, and racist.

The assholes. When Spike breaks out & proves beyond a reasonable doubt

that he's innocent, He should ram a foot in the Mane 6, princesses, and Shining Armor's ass. On top of that; he should cut off all ties to Equestria,

move to the dragons' land, and marry Gelid.

Holy crap, I cannot wait to see where this is going. Makes me want to hate Shining Armor and the others, but I feel like something more is at play or coming up... and I. CANT. WAIT!!!! Great chapter, have this: :moustache:

You deserve more: :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

No matter how hard Spike trains, he wont be strong enough to fight Lockdown(especially since he has no training in combat) and still the matter of how would he get off the island if he ever go out of the prison is still a factor he hasn't considered(especially since he has no wings)

Comment posted by KARLOS1234IFY deleted at 9:07pm on the 28th of March, 2013

I'm just going to call the reference since nobody has done it yet.

Last airbender book three(the episodes before the day of the black sun) Where Iro(if I spell his name right) was in prison training in secretary to brake out.

>>2363821 That scene actually popped into my mind, but Spike wasn't following Iroh's steps in breaking out. Sorta. He was training to break out, but not from his cell. Just to survive the upcoming riot.

Well damn.

Did I do a good job pre-reading?

>>2370237

Thanks, and like i said before, you're stuck with me. Also, great ending. Can't wait to see how it will go from there.

Awesome fight scenes, always good.

>>2369206 What I meant was that the plan for the riot / kill the warden

is coming undone. P.s. Shining Armor you asshole.
