    BUCK 2014 Fanfiction Panel

    Hi guys and gals!

    BUCK is coming up this Saturday, and is very exciting (if you are going, that is!). Even more exciting than that is that there will be a FANFICTION PANEL starring all your favourite people (and me).

    If you are going to BUCK, please come along and say hi! It will be at 11am on the Saturday morning, more details here:

    Joining me, will be Knighty, Scribbler, Arcanium, Greatodyer and Metaphor

    (You may remember that Scribbler did some amazing readings of some of my stories, and Arc decided Scootaloo sounded like a pirate for our Fimfic charity livestream. I certainly haven't forgotten!)

    Come on, how amazing does that sound! If you're at the con and don't go, your life will be full of tears!

    (No idea if the panel will be filmed and put online, I don't think so, unless anyone is planning on going along with a camera!)

    'Rise' has, uh, risen

    I am a machine! A pony machine! It turns out that after a few weeks of scraping out a few hundred words on another story, the threat of a deadline on this one got me there with time to spare!

    Yup, 'Rise' is now complete, and actually within the word limit. The response has been amazing, and so I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Some of you might be upset it is a self-contained story (though it was always going to be, and the ending was the first thing I thought up). I may return to this idea though, and I have no problem with anyone else wanting to riff off it!

    I ended up above a thousand words above the word limit. Fimfic's word count isn't as accurate as gdocs, but it was still a bit much. I ended up removing some minor bits, but also the firefly section. I will leave it below, and might drop it back in after the contest has finished! So uh, sorry if you liked that bit!

    Something caught her eye. A flicker of light above the enormous entranceway to the castle. It was fire in a jar.

    No. Misty narrowed her eyes, looking closer. She started to storm toward the entrance, a new sense of determination rising. It wasn’t fire. With a leap she rose into the air, ignoring the screaming of her sore wings as they took her closer and closer to the jar.

    It was sitting on a ledge above the door, sending gentle light all around. It wasn’t fire though. She pressed her face against the smooth glass, watching the trapped fireflies within, circling their tiny prison.

    “Don’t worry, I’ll get you out of there!” she whispered urgently, looking this way and that in case a pony should see what she was up to. When she was certain the coast was clear, she hefted herself onto the top of the jar, which seemed to be made out of metal. Despite the obvious join, she could see no gaps in the top. She tried using her sword to pry it apart, but nothing would budge.

    “Damn pony magic!” she cursed, sinking down beside the jar in defeat. She watched her pained reflection, illuminated by the streaks of light from within. An idea formed in her mind; she slowly stood up and hefted her front limbs against the jar. “Okay, little buddies! Hold tight!”

    Straining against the glass, she hefted as hard as she could. It began to scrape against the ledge and then started to violently shudder and topple. Misty fell forwards as the jar launched itself onto the ground, barely managing to not fall herself. Below her, it exploded into a thousand shards of crystal that lit up as the fireflies danced free, soaring into the black of the night and vanishing amongst the stars.

    Misty smiled. She had done it. She had struck a blow against the ponies the like of which had never been seen before. It wasn’t enough though. Winter was still coming. But there was something the ponies didn’t know. Misty was coming for them.

    Now to finish Seapony story!

    EqD Prompt Competition Madness

    Okay guys, I have put everything on hold in a frenzied attempt to actually write a story for the EqD Outside Insight Summer Fanfic Contest. I have posted up what I've done in order to shame myself into finishing it. Another 5k by tomorrow... it's doable!

    Actually, my worry is that it will be too long, as the limit is 15k. But then I guess you all still get a bonus story, so everyone wins!

    Let me know what you think!


    It is about Breezies, but EVEN SO give it a go!

    Video Review: Twilight's Best Friend

    I just got messaged by Emeraldcomet who showed me a video review he did of my story Twilight's Best Friend. I always like to see what other people made of my stories (and if you do something like this, please let me know!)

    It's an old story (early 2011 I believe) but still one of my favourites, if a little rough around the edges in retrospect! Anyway, check out the review here:

  • ...

An ancient enemy has escaped their bonds and threatens to destroy the entire world in a black night of chaos and uncreation. What Equestria needs is Twilight Sparkle and the Elements of Harmony.

Unfortunately, what Equestria is getting is Princess Luna's rather dangerous-sounding 'Doom Patrol'.

Luna! Derpy! Princess Erroria! A weird-looking cyclops! They and the rest of the animation error ponies must race to save Equestria from the doom that awaits. But it's a task they can't possibly hope to achieve.

Because their enemy is... Nobody?

[NOTE: This story is very loosely inspired by Grant Morrison's 'Doom Patrol' comics from the 80s; absolutely no knowledge of it is needed to enjoy this, so don't get scared off!]

Doom Patrol... That's the one with the Question and Blue Beetle and all the other Charlton guys, right?


No, that was... I don't think they ever had a name!

Doom Patrol was with Robot Man and Negative Man etc, though this is more an 'inspired by' than 'crosses over with', so you don't need to know anything about it.

Oh, Blueshift.  Oh, Blueshift.

HOW did you...come up with this...?  But it sounds so AWESOME!  And this is why I'm subscribed to you.  This is something I MUST read.


*Thumbs up*

Slowpoke? Is that Luna in disguise?

Yay I have my very own fic :scootangel:

Can someone please explain why the alicorn filly is riding a Slowpoke? I don't get it.:fluttershyouch:

Liked for cyclopes pony :twilightblush:

Fricking Donny :flutterrage:

“Piss off!”


Blueshift, you're being beautiful again. Stop it.

Let's fly to the castle! *FLING!*

Yes, this is awesome so far.  So so awesome. :pinkiehappy:

The best part is, even if we accept your premise, Princess Erroria double shouldn't exist, she was an animation error within a dream sequence. :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:


No, that's the Watchmen you're thinking of. :trollestia:

Faved for Slowpoke.

Now someone needs to make a alt account on here, named Time Flies, and write really bad self insert stories with it.

How the hell is this working?

Isn't The Cyclopes Pony Named Blues?????



No, Blues (or Noteworthy as Hasbro would have it) has two eyes!

>>2402150 Then you should probably have a look at my avatar.

>>2402269 That's really funny looking.

Also, I liked the fic, Blue. Good jawb. Didn't want you to think I faved just for a Pokemon.

Oh, Doom Patrol. I loved that comic. It was crazy random. Nonsensical. Turned sideways with a geranium planted in it. The Justice League dealt with alien invaders and Lex Luthor. The Doom Patrol handled transvestite Genius Loci and The Painting That Ate Paris.

And this is Rule 50 in all its glory. Against a threat too ludicrous for the Mane Six, you need an imaginary princess, an impossible-faced hatepony, a colt born from absurdity, a hero of a thousand made-up victories, and a pair of eyes just enough out of synch to see the truth. You need... the Doom Patrol. With ponies.

I am expecting some Monty-python style silliness from this story.

How did this get featured after only 79 views? Oh right, because the feature box system is broken.

Well, I'll give this a read anyway.


>>2401793 it was the one where beast boy made his big debut, wasnt it?


IIRC, Beast Boy joined the Doom Patrol some time after the period represented here, after the original writer left and the Patrol calmed down to somewhat more-normal levels of lunacy.


Pretty sure Slowpoke is Erroria's companion because it took 4chan a year before actually acknowledging the existence of the error alicorn and dubbing her Princess Erroria. She was pretty huge on /mlp/ for a while after that.

Derpy is still best error.:derpytongue2:


>>2402791 I meant the overall series this is pulled from. no reboots


Ugh, reboots :raritydespair:

Sorry, can't help you with that.


Being one of those who happened to be around for Erroria's "birth", Slowpoke's companionship is indeed due to the fact that unlike Derpy, it took two years to get her shaped up into the Princess of /mlp/ we know today.

Poor Luna. She could really use Banana Sundae right now, even if he's Erroria's imaginary friend.

(Hmmm....Negative Man vibes...)

...You have my attention; please continue.


Translation: this is fucking perfect

Oh. Oh, my. Oh, Blueshift. This is beautiful. Truly beautiful.


So it's a /mlp/ thing? I still don't get it, but I like the slowpoke.

Very nice beginning.  Totally ridiculous but still completely serious.


I now completely want to dig up and re-read my Grant Morrison "Doom Patrol" run.  Your description said you didn't have to be familiar with "Doom Patrol" to understand this story...  and while that definitely seems to be true, I know I'm appreciating this on a hole extra level because I have.  It feels like Morrison's "Doom Patrol" and I could easily see this being the plot-line of one of the comics.  

Also, bonus points for naming the first chapter "Crawling from the Wreckage."  I half-expected chapter 2 to be called "The Painting that Ate Prance" (yeah, I'll pony-size it...)  :pinkiehappy:  

And "Doom Patrol" references aside, the Derpy-Luna scene in the Post Office may have been one of the greatest Derpy scenes I have read yet on this site.  Derpy being Derpy, and Luna getting distracted because she's no on any stamps.  :derpytongue2:

Keep up the good work;  looking forward to Chapter 3!

“Begone, begone, o form of pony, // And arise the princess who is no phony!”
Where are the iambs, Blueshift

where :raritydespair:



OMG, gone gone the form of man, Rise the emon Etrigan! just gonna put that in my comment. I loved it, I love everything that this is you even referenced the Suicide Squad. omg oooh I'm nerdgasming to much

>>2402107 I'm assuming that was a joke, since you were using the :trollestia: face, since Watchmen were alternate version of known super heros, since Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons were unable to use the actual characters.

She frowned, peering at one of the sheets of paper. It hurt to look at it. “…An’ a four-sided triangle?”

Even the laws of geometry aren't safe from the CMC.  Heheheh.

Screw Slowpoke, what about Missingno?


I believe originally DC bought the rights to the characters and asked Alan Moore to write a comic about them. They then realised that Watchmen would render them all completely useless after it had been completed, so make them original instead.

This Mr. Nobody seems a lot more dangerous than the original Doom Patrol version, who could drain sanity from people but couldn't turn reality itself inside out, at least not without a little help from his friends or the occasional weird artifact. I will read on with interest to see where this goes. (BTW, I am aware of the origin of the other characters, but where does Scootaguy come from? "The many origins of Scootaloo" (which I bailed on) or something?)

>>2404488 Yeah, I knew it was something like that. I own the graphic novel, I've read it twice. And I saw the movie in theaters 4 times and have the final cut blu-ray.

>>2404504 Ah, Derpibooru, My Little Pony's theater of Dada...


Eeeyup. Since it took so long to create Erroria, according to the original thread, naturally the only way she could have gotten to /mlp/ that "fast" is on Slowpokeback. One artist seeing the post later, and...

Exquisite. I can't help but imagine Nobody as the Nightmare form of Fausticorn, though I'm sure his origin is nowhere near as intelligible... if he even has one.

In any case, I'm definitely looking forward to more. Especially whatever heroics might be performed by best pony. :derpytongue2:
