Social pariah like you've never seen before.


Spike has had it. It's not his fault the library is a shambles. In fact, he tried his very best to save it.

And now he's supposed to take the blame? Not this time! Until Twilight starts to fully appreciate his worth, Spike goes on strike!

He will not falter! He will not give in! He will stand his ground!
...if at the end of it all there is still some ground left to stand on.

Edit: Congrats on the feature!

I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

Its not as bad as I thought but a lot like

Aegis Sheild's
Stallions on Strike

Only fucosed on primarily spike not all of the equastria stallions.

This is a good read please do continue

Damn! I must know what comes next. I MUST! I MUST!! I MUST!!!

Down with mare and her rules, man!

Yes, Spike! Don't put up with all the abuse! Rebel against the tyranny of Twilight and her friends!

On a scale, no pun intended, of 1 to 10 how pissed off is Spike?

Wow, nice job on this! I must know what happens next.. I must!

To be honest, I only read the first chapter of "Stallions on Strike", but I got the feeling it was mostly about gender inequalities. I hope I therefore end up with a much different story, but maybe I should have read the entire thing before writing this...

That would be telling...
Although, he was oviously aggrevated enough to walk out on him.

Because of my infinite selfconsciousness about my idioms, I actually googled the phrase and found support for both(merriam-webster.com) and flipped an internal coin on which one to pick.

By looking at the cover image, I can tell this is gonna be similar to "Squid on Strike" (Spongebob Squarepants) so I'll give this a good read!

I'll track. This seems good.

I'll just casually erase that comment now... Sorry to have troubled you...:facehoof:

That. Was. Amazing.

Can't wait until the next update! (I don't ever want to bump into an obnoxious sofa clerk like that in my life...)

I'm afraid that was just a shameful attempt to trick people into giving my story a chance, for which an apology is in order.

:ajsleepy:I am very sorry to have deceived you and others like you into reading this story under false pretenses.:ajsleepy:

I use all means to attract readers to give my fic a chance at the feature box. This of course is no justification, merely an explanation.

No trouble at all. In fact, I initially thought the idiom was lying in shambles, but for that I found no support at all (presumably because it doesn't exist).

2496872 Well, it worked. That's why it got featured, because people were giving it a chance, and they enjoyed it!

Really enjoyed this story hope you update soon, also I wouldn't worry about stallions on strike because you were right on the money with gender inequality as the central theme in that story. This has a lot of places to go that would make it very original but more importantly I can't wait to see how the others react and more importantly how will Twilight handle the responsibility of the Library when she is always adventuring with her friends? Numerous questions going on in my head about this and were it will go, definitely adding to my favorites. Also very good pacing going quickly enough to keep it interesting but without revealing too much to early.

I laughed like crazy, cant wait for more!

Didn't Twilight give him a receipt for the quill order? You know, one that would say she ONLY ordered 50 quills?

Maaan, I thought this was gonna be like Squid on Strike. :pinkiesad2:

If this isn't a Spongebob Parody I will be SORELY disappointed.

I feel Equestrian society might be much more built on trust than ours (after all, what would friendship be without trust). So Twilight simply trusted Davenport to not mix up the order or fiendishly lure Spike into buying another sofa.

Please refer to my shameful apology at 2496872.

Where ever this story goes... I hope it ends happily for Spike (not having to slave away none stop)

Well at least Twilight isn't being a total jerk. I'm sure given time Spike will calm down but before this story has to end Twilight had better realize what happend and that what happened isn't Spike's fault. :eeyup:

And so it begins! MOAR! :flutterrage:

This is a story I have been waiting eagerly for.

Finally, a story where he says 'ENOUGH!' I must see where this goes...

2497163 Eh what the hay, I'm gonna fave this. Maybe you read my stories, maybe this little thing goes away... :trollestia: If you want to.

Not a single dislike... YOU sir are my hero!

I love stories that have spike either...
A) on strike
B) realize he is taken for granted
C) shows twilight how much work he REALLY does
D) idk I just like making points :pinkiehappy:


hmm... perfect example of a fic with loads of potential, but no certain indication of where the story will go from here.

Probationary fave for now.

This is gonna be good.:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:

No dislikes? I'm impressed. Let's just hope not even someone actually dislikes it.

INTERNET. WHAT DA BUCK.:applejackconfused:

It's good, really good. The disasters that happened to Spike maybe could have been alittle more "extreme" but it is great

There are no dislikes because this is what everyone wants to happen in the actual show! You tell her Spike! :rainbowlaugh:

Not the same thing. Spike is less of a butt in this story. :duck:

I'm intrigued... If there was any more I would be reading it, which means more than it sounds like considering I got <4h sleep last night and it's 0310 where I am.

Title is similar.
Story itself... not so much.

nice job, now this is a story I can get behind. Stallions on strike just got too big for me, but this, an individual case pertaining to Spike is something I really want to see. Hope to see more of this soon, keep goin and stay golden^^

I'm pretty sure Aegis is joking, for anyone who is actually taking offense in the comments section.

2498165 Ha! You weren't even the first to do the whole "Spike goes on Strike" deal. Also plugging your story in someone's elses....Yeah.

Spike is tired of being everypony's bitch! :moustache:

So far so good, good luck on the next chapter and congrats on making the top spot in the featured box.
