good thing vinyl brought the machette

#2 · Chapter 1 · 77w, 5d ago · 4 · ·

Interesting start and a good read to say the least, do continue!

#3 · Chapter 1 · 77w, 5d ago · · ·

Ohhhh damn. For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island! Oh glorious day!

Anyways, I enjoyed this story so far. I find it quite interesting to see how this will turn out since they both have such different personalities and such. Will fav!

Keep it up bro! :rainbowkiss:

yea umm i think octy was right they were going the wrong way

#5 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 3d ago · · ·

“Let’s see…” began Octavia, opening her lunchbox, “… I have apples, carrots, and celery stalks. Oh, and colourful flowers too.”

That sounds...familiar... :trixieshiftright:

#6 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2036145

HA! I didn't notice it 'till you pointed it out. Nice.

Great story so far. Don't know why, but at the quicksand part I was thinking of The Scorpion King.:twilightoops: Can't wait for another update. And what do you mean by "pulp-y"?

#7 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2036319

I might be able to update tomorrow or Thursday, it depends upon how lazy I get. And as for pulp-y, I mean I want it to feel a bit like pulp magazines of the 20's and 30's. Very Indiana Jones-esque stuff.

Glad to see that you enjoy it! :pinkiehappy:

>>2038579

Oh. Thanks for explaining. That link helped.I love Lovecraft and The Phantom.

Well, I await your update.:twilightsmile:

#9 · Chapter 2 · 77w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2036145 I made the same joke in a story I still have yet to publish. It's been sitting there, waiting for me to write more on it before I send it in for approval.

#10 · Chapter 3 · 77w, 1d ago · · ·

Very funny keep it up

#11 · Chapter 3 · 77w, 1d ago · · ·

so i take it vinyl is trying to find the graves of somepony she knew a long time ago

#12 · Chapter 3 · 77w, 1d ago · · ·

Vinyl’s impulsiveness and lack of concern for her own wellbeing was making her more and more impatient to get back to the tour group.

well being*

Spotting Vinyl’s saddlebag lying where Vinyl had collapsed, a new idea occurred to Octavia.If

Octavia. If*

Good chapter. I have a feeling that Octavia may break that promise, at least for a minute. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

#13 · Chapter 3 · 77w, 20h ago · · ·

>>2046897

Oops, thanks for pointing out those errors. Fixed now.

I'm sorta busy over the next few days, so I don't know when I'll be able to update. Glad to see that you're enjoying it so far though!

#15 · Chapter 4 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

It is stupidly stupid.

You told us to tell you how stupid it was...

#16 · Chapter 4 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

At least… that’s what he said that last time I talked to him.”

that (the second one) or replace it with "the"

Also, you should use pronouns more often. I saw a couple sentences and paragraphs where you would use Vinyl a lot. It kinda disrupted flow (for me). Like here:

She could see why Vinyl was so determined to complete her self-appointed mission, yet at the same time couldn’t find it in her heart to empathise enough to accompany Vinyl.

You should replace one of the Vinyl's with the appropriate pronoun. Also, commas after "yet" and "time".

Great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

#17 · Chapter 4 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2071816

Oops! Thanks again for picking up on my errors! I realise the non-using-as-many-pronouns-as-I-should thing can be a bit annoying, but I worry that if I use too many "she" and "her"s in a sentence, it can get confusing as to whether Octavia or Vinyl are being referred too. I forget whether there's a grammar rule to do with that.

Would you like to proofread future chapters?

#18 · Chapter 4 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2071839

Sure. I would be honored.:twilightsmile:

#19 · Chapter 4 · 76w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2072896

Awesome, I'll send you PM's whenever I finish a chapter then.

Thank you, I really appreciate it! :pinkiehappy:

#20 · Chapter 5 · 76w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

Very nice (This is DoctorWhooves69 incase you were wandering)

#21 · Chapter 5 · 76w, 1d ago · 5 · ·

LOOK AT ALL.

THE REFERENCES I DON'T GET. :yay:

#22 · Chapter 5 · 76w, 1d ago · · ·

Another great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

#23 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

Yes. Yes you have.

In other news, this was an excellent chapter to an already excellent story.

#24 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

Haha. I love this story :rainbowkiss:

#25 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

“Of course I am, Tavi. You’re the hottest mare I know.”

There was a moment of silence before the two friends burst out laughing.

SHIPPING!! (And Vinyl laughed so Tavi thought she was joking so she wouldn't hate her for being gay and having a crush on her)

'Nuther great chapter. I like how this is coming along. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

#26 · Chapter 1 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island!

:fluttercry:

#27 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2197136

...Uh...uh...

:pinkiesad2: Well this is awkward.

#28 · Chapter 1 · 72w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2197136 Don't listen to the mean pony dude. Tavi/ Vinyl Island stories are awesome! :raritywink:

#29 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2197251

Nah, that's all right; An Island isn't my best story :twilightsmile:

>>2198791

Eyep~

As for the story itself, I'm enjoying it so far. Came for the syvvak, stayed for the plot. :scootangel:

#30 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2200262

Thank you! :twilightsmile: I've been reading An Island and so far it's pretty good fun!

#31 · Chapter 6 · 72w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2201302

Thank you :twilightsmile:

#32 · Chapter 7 · 71w, 4d ago · · ·

And that, my dear Tavi, is why you never help the bad guy. That is why the good path is so much harder.

Great chap, Doc. Really coming along nice. Can't wait for more.

#33 · Chapter 7 · 71w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

SHIPPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING~ :heart: I dig.

#34 · Chapter 7 · 71w, 3d ago · · ·

wow that was really low, she saved his life out of the goodness of her heart and in return he condemns her

#35 · Chapter 7 · 71w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2247057

And that is why he is the villain :trollestia:

#36 · Chapter 7 · 71w, 1d ago · 3 · ·

Octavia, you just can't go one story without getting shipped via FedEx

#37 · Chapter 8 · 71w, 2h ago · · ·

It was another great chapter Doc. That friendshipping scene was cute. I can't wait for more.

#39 · Chapter 8 · 71w, 2h ago · 2 · ·

When Octavia tried to "attack hug" Vinyl, I immediately thought about her doing it anime style:

"VINYL-CHAN, DESUUU~" *Glomp* :pinkiecrazy:

#40 · Chapter 8 · 70w, 6d ago · · ·

*Gasp*! NO VINYL!

#41 · Chapter 8 · 70w, 3d ago · · ·

And then another chapter for bonus clop an epilogue.

#42 · Chapter 9 · 69w, 4d ago · · ·

First! Ha never had a chance to do that before!:pinkiehappy:

#43 · Chapter 10 · 69w, 1d ago · 2 · ·

Ha! One of the better Vinyl/Octavia stories I've read.

Thuroughly enjoyed this. Well done sir! :pinkiehappy:

Yay for ambiguous endings! :rainbowlaugh:

#44 · Chapter 10 · 69w, 1d ago · · ·

It was a great OctaScratch friendshipping. Loved it from start to finish.. I can't wait for more OctaScratch from you, man.

#45 · Chapter 10 · 69w, 23h ago · 2 · ·

>>2330600

Thank you! Comments like this really do make my day!

>>2330891

The next story I have in mind is OctaScratch, but it's just a one-shot. Hopefully I can continue to satisfy :raritywink:

#46 · Chapter 10 · 69w, 5h ago · 1 · ·

Well.

That was, indeed, satisfying.

Thank you for providing this to lighten up my day. OctaScratch is always fun to read, the characters just seem to bounce off so well.

Keep writing~

:heart:

#47 · Chapter 10 · 69w, 4h ago · · ·
