I stay up far too late.
Small stories and drabbles that focus on the faithful student and the estranged sister.
Your a naughty pony Luna, a naughty pony indeed. and..."MUZJIKS".... Is this an actual word or did you just make it up? I am now honestly interested..
>>187943187943 Apparently, it's the best word in the game, 29 pts, + 50 pts for using all 7 letters.
It means a Russian peasant.
Haha, yup. Best word in the game. I was looking for something obscure that couldn't pass off as a legitimate word, and that one was perfect.
I just finished a paper on Russian serfdom in the 1600s and went online hoping to never see the word 'muzjik' again.
I love this story. Adorable. Cute. Funny. It isn't outwardly romantic, but feels..sexy.
I looked up the word Muzjiks in the urben dictionary, an i lol'd
TO anyone curious, here it is
1:The best 7 letter word in scrabble, this word racks up 29 points, and receives a bonus of 50 for being 7 letters or longer, that totals to 79 points.
2:a Russian peasant (especially prior to 1917)
Alan: "What does muzjiks mean?"
Jim:"I don't know but I just owned you in scrabble"
This seems promising. Your dialogue style works for this. And I like the way you've portrayed Luna.
I love this one. The first few were okay, but this one is really
Very cute! Tracking
I got scared for a bit there. What with NMM peeking out. I forgot about this story, so I reread the whole thing when you updated. Still cute!
Luna seems to freak out over imagined things like Twilight.
-looks at username- Aww, snap. I love your work. Thank you!
Thank you, much appreciated.
Thank you, thank you.
And that's why they're perfect for each other. Haha.
Just wanted to say thank you to the author.
Thank you, HerroPony, you have no idea how happy and fuzzy on the inside this story makes me.
really great story, a little short and slow to update, but nonetheless great!
There's a lot of Luna in the Ponyfic-o-sphere, and I think each author pulls his or her own interpretation out of the admittedly limited amount of material we have to work with. Which is why, I guess, something usually feels a little "off" about her depictions to me; it's no fault of the author in particular, it's just that there's a lot more holes to fill, and the material used to fill it doesn't always resonate with me. For whatever reason, though, this particular little short comes the closest I've seen to really making me happy, the closest to laying out a character that something about me feels that it knows.
It's a little odd for me to say "nicely done" for something that succeeds mostly in confirming my own inner paradigm, but I will say that this story made me happy, and I'm looking forward to more drabbles if you choose to pen them.
... At first, I mistook the word for "MUDKIPZ" and thought 'In what universe does Mudkipz count in Scrabble?'
Loved the story! But now i'm getting curious about the next part
Any ETA on that?
Thank you, thank you!
The next part is all planned and outlined; should be out some time soon.
TwiLuna that is too cute...
Please write more! This stuff is great.
I love your TwiLuna. You write Twilight very well, and I love your Luna (which I differentiate from Twi only because Twi's so established compared to Luna)!
TwiLuna is best Luna
Luna: "Do you trust me?"
Twilight: "I trust yo-"
Oh, James Cameron, what are you doing here?
"They're stealing from me."
No, they're learning to trust after a very long relationship, your Titanic love story has them trusting each other over a few days.
"Are you insulting my plot?"
Yes. This guy wrote a better love story than Titanic.
awesome, to bad this doesn't update more often! i absolutely love luna's personality, one can really describe her state of mind as that of the waning and waxing lunar phases
I was silently hoping Twilight would jump off the cloud, only to have Luna swiftly catch her. It pretty much gets to the same result, except with more falling off clouds and stuff!
And again, I reread the whole thing because I keep forgeting what story this is! So many tracked stories, some update more often than others... oh well, it's still a blast after the third reading.
TwiLuna is best everything. It is in fact, the greatest thing in the universe ever.
Nicely done. The world needs more of this 'ship.
Lovely chapter, just one thing... you used quite a few words that I was unfamiliar with (not being English born (DRAGON BORN!)), so I dunno... maybe that should be something for you to consider for a future story? That not everyone is English and thus maybe it would be better to use more commonly used words? I dunno... it was just a suggestion :)
He should stick to Aliens, thats what he's good at :D
Couldn't have said it better myself brah!
That it does!
This is surprisingly good for such a short shot.
As they say: cute things come in small packages.
You Sir deserve a Moustache for that* in the purple serpent voice*
So... New chapter? Please?
Re-reading. Probably not for the first time.
Help, it's giving me unmanly warm fuzzy feelings, and I can't stop reading!
If you updated I would celebrate that date for 30 years afterward.
Urrrrk, my feels...
Poor Celestia, ever the proper Princess. Never able to take what she wants.
A downer chapter?
"NO! None of that! Shame on you!"
Dear Faust... Poor Celestia. The feels on that one hit me like a runaway train...
A nice look into Celestia's Mind, though I hope this doesn't mean that she's going try and interfere with Luna and Twilight's relationship later down the line.
Regardless, a good chapter. Hope to see more in the future.
I'll admit I did not expect the chapter from Celestia's point of view, and while its sad, sure, all I can really think is "All's fair in love and war" and "Early Bird Gets the Worm" It was also kinda nice for Celestia to feel jealous, note the emotion and then note the comparison to Luna. Given the first paragraph, it sounds like Celestia's been down the road of outliving lovers before and she tries to cut herself off from her emotions and purposely stays away from getting involved no matter how much she wants too, while Luna doesn't because she hasn't perhaps experienced the losses Celestia has. I eagerly look forward to more installments.
Edit: Are all these stories connected to each other? If so, I think it might retroactively make the Chapter "The Second Best Thing" kinda sad as well...
Is there gonna be a Springer moment later in the story?
I hope I'm invited.
Could we perhaps...
Have a story...
Wherein Celestia gets to be happy?
I'd had my eye on this one, hoping to see more.
Huh? wtf? I thought I tracked this story...and it happens that I missed like 3 chapters?
All the universes that matter.
Each chapter up til now carries a heavy or strong emotion to it. This one felt beautifully tragic to me. Nothing more, nothing less. Yet so perfect.
If you've set out to out to vigorously stir the emotions of your readers... congratulations.
Her Radiant Majesty deserves happiness even more than Luna, who nearly brought about genocide out of pettiness. :|
To give so much, and get nothing in return that she actually -needs- is beyond cruel. Whereas Luna has always had Celestia looking out for her, then Luna tried to -take- from her, and now that Luna's back, she's taking -again- this time just without force and combat.
People can go on and on about poor sad little Luna, but I rarely hear anything about Celestia's far greater hardships outside of the ranks of the Solar Empire. Why does the sinner get to be happy and the martyr never find any peace?
JUSTICE! We call for it! Or... I'ma cry.
Even though I don't like Celestia I can't help but feel a little bad for her, I do understand her "problem" but I'm a rather selfish person and I would never sacrifice anything to obtain my own interests, even if I had to walk on thousands of corpses to achieve my desires (then again I'm not what you would consider a "decent" person).
PS. I forgot where I wanted to go with this...
uuuh okay i don't think i really understand how this got resolved.
Luna worries that she is just second best for Twilight(because she cant have celestia). Then Celestia tells Luna that she is not interested in Twilight.
How does that change that Luna feels like the second best? logically it would just show that twilight really can't have Celestia and then Lunas worry would improve.
Great way to keep on the TwiLuna topic but present it from an entirely different (outside) perspective.
Not sure about this wording: "The walls spoke through these monochromatic windows". If we're talking about stained glass, then they'd be polychromatic. Monochromatic means single-color, which seems out of place here.
celestia deserves happiness as well, isn't there a solution for everyone?
also; we know what happens when an alicorn feels incredibly jealous...hello daymare sun! (not now of course, but it's a possibility)
