    Short Hand: Rarity and Spike

    Just an older snippet I will probably repurpose for Short Hand eventually.

    - - -

    Spike is helping Rarity with her work. Ever since Twilight ascended and Shepherd's helped coach him through controlling his greed, he's become taller and bigger. And in many eyes, far more handsome.

    Spike: "Here, this is the needle you want."

    Short Hand: Missed Opportunity

    Shepherd is fixing some plumbing in Rarity's shop while Twilight and Rarity work on a dress, with Spike hoping accessories up.

    Rarity: "Darling, something just occurred to me. You were in Canterlot when dear Shepherd was discovered, were you not?"

    Twilight: "Oh, I was!"

    Rarity: "Then how did you and Spike never meet him?"

    Twilight: "Ah... Well..."

    Flashback...

    Short Hand: Trusting Chaos

    One night, while Shepherd is reading at home... He hears some bells ringing, and then his walls turn purple. He sighs, and closes his eyes tightly.

    Discord: "Guess who?"

    Shepherd: "Not in the mood."

    Discord: "Aw, why must you be so hurtful, Shepherd? After all, I am reformed! Fluttershy said so herself!"

    Short Hand: The Dark Emperor Shepherd 8

    Shining Armor slowly came to, and took quick notes on his situation: His horn had a magic resistant ring around it, he was tied up, and he was sitting in a chair. No doubt he was about to be interrogated and tortured by the Evil Dark Emperor Shepherd.

    Shepherd: "Oh hey, he's coming around!"

    Short Hand: The Dark Emperor Shepherd 7

    At Canterlot Palace, Shepherd is pacing back and forth and trying not to trip over his own cape.

    Blueblood: "The entire Crystal Empire fleet is heading this way, Your Dreadfulness."

    Shepherd: *groans* "Oh good! More pressure! I don't suppose we could just tell Shining this is all a wacky sitcom plot?"

    Raven: "Alas my Dark Lord, he is unlikely to believe you."

Hands: Shepherd's Jobs 4 · 3:10am Dec 4th, 2019

Shepherd's Jobs Number 4: Diplomat

King Aspen: "So as you can see, this treaty will only require minor reparations of your lands, a mere half of the Apple farm-"

Celestia: "... Andrew? Would you come in please?"

*Shepherd walks into the conference room with a gun*

Shepherd: "Yes, Your Majesty?"

King Aspen: "!!! HUMAN?! THEY'RE REAL?!"

Shepherd: "Uh, hi. The gun's not loaded, don't worry-"

King Aspen: "NEVERMIND WHAT I JUST SAID! YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING! WE SWEAR FEALTY TO YOU AND BEG YOUR FORGIVENESS!" *He bows, with the rest of his terrified entourage*

Celestia: "Thank you Shepherd. That will be all. Would you like to have tea afterwards?"

Shepherd: "... Sure?"

Celestia: "Wonderful!"

You can get more accomplished with a kind word and a gun than just a kind word.

I see someone remembers Deer Season well.

I wonder how much Shepherd misses venison from his old life...

Is it just me, or did he seem more freaked out over the human than the gun?

Much later.

King Aspen bellowed, bring me the Chronicle of King Bambi. Man is in the forest.

Speak softly, and carry a big boomstick.

Or the old Daffy Duck cartoon. But when Angel's on the other arguing side, you know you're in trouble.

When in doubt, call in the woodwraith.

I imagine humans have hunted deer with bows, spears and knives for far longer than we have with guns.

Plus there's the whole persistence hunter aspect where we would literally run down our prey to exhaustion. So imagine actually living out a chase scene from a horror film where the creature after you always manages to catch up and never seems to get tired.
