    This greeted me this morning.

    Oh CRAP it's hot.

    It's going to be in the mid-thirties all week. For the next two days, it's going to be thirty-five. For the  metrically challenged, that's  about ninety-seven fahrenheit.

    These  are days in which one is proud that someone stepped up to the plate and invented air-conditioning.

    My dog is not going to be a happy camper, and will likely be as pleased as I am of the existence of the A/C.

    Maybe I'll get myself some ice cream. Hot days are always better with ice cream. It's either that or seeing if I can get heat exhaustion again. Maybe I'll be lucky and the heat will birth a thunderstorm. I love a good thunderstorm; the more violent, the better. It's like rain with fireworks. Even my dog loves them. She yells at the thunder, thinking she's protecting me.

    So then. A week of doing as little as possible and giving thanks to cold air and ice cream.

    Summertime is here.

    I've just seen the stupidest thing this month.

    The local school board has gone on strike. All of the teachers walked off the job. The reason for the strike essentially boils down to 'better support for the kids.'

    So, in essence they want to improve things for the students by refusing to teach them anything.

    Wuh?

    There's a little pink nose a-pokin' into my room.

    It's Daisy, sucking up.

    As usual.

    She pokes her head in periodically, in the hope that A) She'll get a walk, B) She'll get a snack or C) She 'll get both.

    And she can be quite insistent, hanging outside my door and giving pitieous whines under her breath, especially when she wants a walk. Well, I can't take her out, as it's raining cats and dogs (*COUGH*), so I decide to keep her occupied in another way by giving her a peice of what I'm snacking on.

    Wine gums.

    A wine gum, if you didn't  know, is essentially a dense ju-jube. She scarfs it up without a single thought, as dogs are wont to do, and the fun begins.

    As anyone who owns a dog can tell you, giving a dog peanut butter is pretty funny.

    Giving one a wine gum is hilarious.

    She bites right into it, immediately gumming her mouth shut. So she tries on her side teeth. No good; gummed up again.She shakes her head to loosen it to try again. At this point she's basically waging war on it with her face.

    She figures out what's going on and to be careful, so now she looks like an old lady trying to eat a sandwich as her dentures are falling out. She rolls the gum up and down left and right slowly but surely wearing it down for proper consumption. This takes over a minute as I'm quietly losing my shit.

    Finally, after a protracted battle with her gummy nemesis, she swallows it and licks her face clean.

    Then she looks to me for another one.

    Stupid dog.

    Here's a thought to run through your cute pointy heads.

    Self-help means exactly that: dealing with a problem or issue on your own.

    So why would you need a book on the subject?

Zecora, the zebra shamaness has lived in the Everfree Forest for some time, but has never gone beyond except for the sake of finding roots and herbs for her potions that her woods cannot supply. But upon making friends with young Apple Bloom and later Twilight and her companions, she has taken it upon herself to travel beyond for a time. Stopping at Sweet Apple Acres for a minute to speak with Applejack, she catches the eye of Macintosh. The stallion falls for Zecora at first sight and then does something very poorly thought out to prove himself to her...

SuperGiantRobot, you cease to fail me.

#2 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

I have read this story before, or at least one that was nearly identical :trixieshiftright:

#3 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836421

That was probably mine - I decided to expand on the story. Check my Da link.

#4 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836439

Aha! Good, good, always happy to see expanded stories :twilightsmile:

(I was wondering why there was no link in my document)

#5 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

I like the premise. Never thought of this idea before and I'm embarrassed for it. Good job.

#6 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836457

There are a couple along this line now, but I may have been the first one to do a Zecora/Mac story, taking into account that the original was written about a year and half ago.

Don't quote me on that, though.

#7 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

Haven't I read this before here? I swear this is not the first time I've seen Zecora head to Manehatten. Still good start.

#8 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836589

Not Manehattan, now that we know that's it's a good distance away - this is a sort of sister city: 'not the same as the original, but a close copy.'

#9 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

I found something, well... two somethings really. :twilightsheepish:

Twilight turned back to the zebra. “Sorry about her, Zecora. Sometimes she has a tendency to say what’s thinking before she thinks about what she’s saying.”

The sight of him had stirred something more in her, especially now that she though of him,

#10 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836607

Ah... I stand corrected, and you are right Manehatten would be too far though seeing Zecora on a train would be interesting.

#11 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836653

Thanks; a bit tricky to edit on a PS3 with only a thumbpad...:pinkiehappy:

#12 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1836421

>>1836457

>>1836321

Wait'll you see what Ihave planned for poor Macintosh...:trixieshiftleft:

#13 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

Hmm, I'm not really a big fan of ZecoraMac, but so far, these seems interesting. Proceed.

#14 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

oh good was beggining to think you missed the part about cutie pox episode lol good story will be favved

#15 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

Their is just one thing that bothers me a bit about this fic. That is the opening line, I don't know why. But other than that I really like this story!

#16 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

What kind of language did you use for zecora?

#17 · 95w, 5d ago · 1 · · There and Back Again ·

>>1837187

Swahili. That's a direct translation.

#18 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1837186

'It was mid-morning when the zebra mare trotted into Ponyville' perhaps?

#19 · 95w, 5d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

>>1837247

Could be, Not to sure could just be the mid-day part.

#21 · 95w, 4d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

You have engaged my interests. Just tell, where it is this will be going?

But please, do so continue.

#22 · 95w, 4d ago · · · There and Back Again ·

i like the idea of big mac and zecora together its diferent but good

#24 · 95w, 22h ago · · · There and Back Again ·

OOOOOOOO! :pinkiegasp: I've never seen a ZecoraMac before!!! :pinkiehappy:

#28 · 93w, 5d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

interesting

#29 · 93w, 4d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

Well the good news is that Granny likes her, bad news he faced Toxicodendron philogelos or more commonly known as Poison Joke. Well at least he is heading towards his lady love who is skilled at curing it.

#30 · 93w, 4d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

Ah Poison joke.

#31 · 93w, 4d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

Have I read this story before?  It seems familiar yet different.

#32 · 93w, 3d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

There's not enough Macora.:fluttercry:

#33 · 93w, 1d ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

"Ewe mungu wangu.... They must feed him foals..."

Oh, was it you? Cool, I'll credit. I generally do if I know who did it.

#37 · 92w, 13h ago · · · There and Back Again ·

Ah ha! So this is what that Zecora stuff before was about. *starts reading*

#38 · 92w, 12h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

oh wow i cant wait to see how mac gets out of this one :rainbowlaugh:

#39 · 92w, 12h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

Oh Macintosh... Didn't your sisters tell you about Poison Joke?:facehoof:

#40 · 92w, 12h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1969912

Well that's what he gets for refusing help...

#41 · 92w, 11h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

An interesting ship, you have my curiosity.

Edit: Pretty good :eeyup: I'll look forward to more of this

#42 · 92w, 11h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

Yeah, I too feel as if I have read this before. Reupload?

#43 · 92w, 11h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970073

Sorta. Not just a re-upload, I've expanded the hell out of ot.

#44 · 92w, 11h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970087

Allrighty. Lets see what's new then.

#45 · 92w, 8h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

I can honestly say this is the first time I've seen a shipfic that has actually triggered anything even remotely fan-boyish inside me :pinkiehappy:.

#46 · 92w, 8h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970836

Cool. One day I just thought to myself: "Hey, this has never been done. And the two places are kinda close. Let's do this."

This is actually a re-write. The original was written a year ago and is a lot smaller, hence the author's note.

#47 · 92w, 8h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970879

Well, I look forward to reading it in its entirety :derpytongue2:

#48 · 92w, 8h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970884

it ain't getting any better for Mac, let's put it this way.

#49 · 92w, 7h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

In the summary, Twilight is missing an "L" and an "I"

Reading now...

#50 · 92w, 7h ago · · · Cherchez la Mare ·

>>1970922

Sorry 'bout that.
