    Real Life Update

    Been sick with the flu and other things for the past week. And I got obsessed with Naruto again. So writing will be slowed for a bit. Sorry.

    Short Hand: Aftermath of Science

    Shepherd: "Twiliiiiight! What the hell-Where did all these bits come from?!"

    He gestures to the pile of gold bits on the kitchen table.

    Twilight: "Ummmm..." taps her hooves together "I asked for donations from all the research participants... I set fifty bits as the minimum donation and well..."

    Shepherd: "... If I didn't know any better, I would swear you were pimping me out."

    Short Hand: Tea Party

    Shepherd is invited to a tea party with Fluttershy and Discord.

    Shepherd: "Oh hey... Flying s'mores. Nice."

    Fluttershy: "Oh, I quite like them!"

    Discord: "Do I detect a hint of criticism in your tone, Shepherd?"

    Shepherd: "No. It's nice that you're still as food obsessed as a wine aunt on Twitter. Maybe you can put it on Instagram to impress other childless weirdos"

    Short Hand: A New Generation 2

    Old Man Shepherd had taken Sunny and her friends to an ancient cavern, far from Maretime Bay.

    Hitch: "Uh huh... There a reason we're out here?"

    Izzy: "Is it a good reason? Like a secret candy stash? Ugh, two thousand year old candy! Gross!"

    Short Hand: A New Generation...

    In the future, Shepherd, now an old but badass looking man, fell asleep... And then woke up in front of an Earth pony with orange fur, purple mane and tail, and a big smile.

    Shepherd: "Urgh... My head... What the hell happened...?"

    Sunny Starscout: "YES! IT WORKED! THE MAGIC WORKS!"

    Shepherd: "I... Who are you?"

Short Hand: The Cutie Mark Crusaders 1 · 10:53pm Aug 29th, 2020

Applebloom: "So Shepherd, what's your cutie mark?"

Shepherd: "Huh? I don't have one."


Applebloom: "Ya mean... ya don't have one?"

Scootaloo: "At all?!"

Sweetie Belle: "Not even a little one?"

Shepherd: "Nope. Humans don't have cutie marks. Never have."

Applebloom: "So that means..."


Shepherd: "No I'm not. I don't want a cutie mark, girls."

Applebloom: "Wha... You don't?!"

Shepherd: "Nope."

Sweetie Belle: "But-But why not?!"

Shepherd: "Why would I want one? I'm happy without one. And you guys will get yours in time, too. So you don't have to worry."

Scootaloo: "Can you still be part of our club? Because we only have a few members and we're running out of money."


Scootaloo: "OOPS! I-I mean we DON'T need money! For things!"

Sweetie Belle: *sighs* "We just think you could give us new ideas for Cutie Marks, Mister Shepherd. Since yer an alien and all."

Shepherd: "Well..."

CMCs: "Pleeeeeaaaase?"

Shepherd: *sighs* "... Fine. What's first on the agenda?"

Later... Shepherd is lying on a table in the CMC Clubhouse, while Scootaloo adjusts a camera, Sweetie Belle is dressed as a doctor, and Applebloom is dressed as a military officer.

CMCs: "Cutie Mark Crusaders Alien Autopsy and Cover Up Specialists! YAYYYYYY!"

Shepherd: sighs "Technically since I'm still alive, it's not an autopsy."

Scootaloo: "Should we fix that?"

Sweetie Belle and Applebloom: "SCOOTALOO!"

Scootaloo: "What?!"

Scootaloo, you worry me.


Eh, by little kid standards, that's barely notable. Plus, let's face it - much as we love her, you just know that Scootaloo's the kind of kid who, if going through the mirror, wouldn't have fingers for ten seconds before she picked her nose with them. This is just par for the course with this kind of filly.

AB: "Ya can't jus' kill him, Scoots!"
Scoots: "Why not? He can come back from the dead, right? Isn't that what he told us about that Cheese Crust guy?"
Shepherd: "His name is Jesus Christ and and wasn't human!"
Scoots: "Ooooohhhh... my bad."

Shepherd: "Well He was but He was also God-Look, point is, He is the exception! Every other human dies without a respawn!"
Applebloom: "What about Dragonballs?"
Scootaloo: "Dragon's what?"
Shepherd: "Do you have those handy?"
Applebloom: "Well no-"
Shepherd: "Then no!"

Crusaders In Black!

Scootaloo is right! It should be "Cutie Mark Crusaders Alien Vivisection and Cover Up Specialists" :scootangel:
