Short Hand: The Dark Emperor Shepherd 2 · 6:27pm July 29th

Meanwhile in Ponyville, the coup and installation of Emperor Shepherd the First had gone unnoticed until it arrived by telegram. Twilight Sparkle read it, rolled her eyes, and sought out Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie. Dash was napping on a cloud, while Pinkie Pie was trying to play tiddlywinks.


Twilight: "Haha, very funny Rainbow Dash. And Pinkie, this seems like one of your pranks too."


Dash: "Huh? What's so funny?"

Pinkie: "Forgive me Shepherd, for I have sinned!"

Shepherd: *sigh* "Pinkie Pie, for the last time, I'm not a priest! I can't take confession! I'm not even Catholic!"

Pinkie: "Father Waddles said as a Human Guardian you're just as good as a priest!"

Shepherd: "Father Waddles and I are going to have to have words."

Pinkie: "Pleeeeeasse? Please please please please please please please please-?!"

Weeks after the dramatic battle with the Deer... And Ponyville was back to normal... Shepherd was walking around, taking a day off. He headed up to Filthy Rich's store to do some shopping... When he saw them. His eyes widened as the Cutie Mark Crusaders happily bouncing out of the store.

Shepherd: "Huh. Hey girls!"

Applebloom: "Oh! Howdy Shepherd! Look what we got!"

Sweetie Belle: "They're on sale today!"

Scootloo: "And look totally awesome!"

Short Hand: Rarity and Spike · 11:24pm August 9th

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."

Rarity: "Oh, thank you dear... Hm?" She looked over at him more closely, and saw that he was distracted. "Spike, I need the red thread next."

At last, the day of the Eeeevil Imperial Wedding has arrived! Shepherd is in big, bulky, "impressive" looking evil wedding armor. He is standing at the Eeeevil Altar erected in the Palace Courtyard, Discord waiting as the 'minister' and Cadence is sitting nearby as Mare of Honor. Chewie is "Best Stallion", and standing with a large bowtie as he growls, while Spike is the ringbearer, again.

Short Hand: Dates with Shepherd - Fluttershy · 4:02am August 3rd

Shepherd: I've known her the longest, and she's been fairly obvious... Okay blindingly obvious with her affections. So let's just man up and ask her. Clearly, she's too shy to just say it.

He knocks on Fluttershy's door

Fluttershy: Opens it "Oh... H-Hello Shepherd. It's so nice to see you, how are you?"

Shepherd: "I'm good. So. You want to go on a date with me this Venuday?"

Fluttershy: "..."

Shepherd: "... Fluttershy?"

Shepherd tries to Help Twilight Sparkle

Short Hand: Doctor Whooves 1 · 9:05pm August 19th

Shepherd took the revelation that Doctor Whooves and Ditzy had a time travelling, dimension-hopping muffin-shaped TARDIS quite well.

Shepherd: "HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHAT THE PUS SPEWING FUCK-!"

But after he was able to compose himself, breathing into a paper bag in the main control room of the Muffin...

Doctor: "Now now, everything is all right!"

Shepherd: "So... You think you can get me home?"

Twilight: bright red, snatches it away with her telekinesis "Th-That's about scientific inquiries into the religious practices of certain predator groups and tribes and definitely not pornographic in any way whatsoever ahahahaha!"

Shepherd: "... Okay?"

Fluttershy: "Hello Twilight! I just got the latest issue!"

Short Hand: Infiltration · 2:17pm August 17th

One human and a few ponies had thwarted Chrysalis' brilliant (In her mind) scheme to take over Equestria and get an everlasting source of love. It was infuriating that a weak creature with no magic at all could be instrumental in defeating her!

Short Hand: The Dark Emperor Shepherd 9 · 1:47am August 19th

The Dark Emperor Shepherd was sitting on the throne, giving Applejack a very thorough and pleasing bellyrub, while Raven Quill ran him through his itinerary.

Raven: "And after the press interview, you will give your State of Equestria speech to Parliament."

Shepherd: "Wait, I have to make a speech?"

Raven: "Of course. The Princesses were meant to give the same speech, but since you are in power, you must do it."

Short Hand: Trusting Chaos · 4:05am August 9th

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!"

Shepherd: "Yeah, and I'm still checking her for mind control magic or body swapping or literally anything else you may have done to her."

Short Hand: Pony Religion 3 · 3:43am August 25th

Shepherd was doing some financial stuff at his kitchen table, when the doorbell rang. He got up and walked up to it, and opened it. There was Pinkie Pie, with... Several gray ponies.

Pinkie: "Hi Shepherd! My family is in town, and they wanted to meet you! This is my dad Igneous Rock Pie, my mom Cloudy Quartz Pie, and my sisters Limestone and Marble Pie!"

She grins happily, while her family remains very stoic.

After the Changeling Invasion and the wedding, Shepherd was trying to relax in the armor and weapons from the Ancient Human Archives he'd pilfered for the fight in a small, unoccupied room in the palace. After some time, Princess Celestia entered, sat down next to him, and began eating cakes too.

Shepherd: "... You okay?"

Celestia: "... Shepherd. Do you think I'm weak?"

Shepherd: "Huh?"

Short Hand: The Dark Emperor Shepherd 7 · 2:52pm August 7th

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."

Applejack: "To be fair, he does kinda hate yer guts anyway."
