One average morning, one average princess, one average kitchen, and one average bag of whole wheat bread slices... No one could mess this up.

One-Shot about beloved Luna doing perhaps one of the most mundane of tasks.

Why do I get the feeling this is going to be just like Luna Vs. The World: Microwave? :rainbowlaugh:

Phew, thank god.

I thought the Luna X [human appliance] fad had died.

Hey guess what??



Reminds me of when I try to make toast.

Heh, we share cover art!

That was fantastic. Super big smile the whole way. I think I might take to calling the toaster the alchemy device from now on, so is the honor I impart on this fic and therefore onto you.

omg... I loved how it skipped from waiting to Celestia going what the ever loving hell... :rainbowlaugh:

I wish I could destroy my house making toast

XD :rainbowlaugh::facehoof:

Luna, Luna, Luna...

At least she used the best type of bread.

This was great, I love seeing mundane things being made out as epic. One small stickler though,

"...purpose echoing along with the claps of her naked hooves against the dull carpet flooring."

Would her walking on carpet have really made any noise? Did you mean to put tiled flooring? eh, who cares?

Adorable story, definitely gonna look up some more of your work later.

I would LOVE to see a dramatic reading of this.
This is such a great story, anyhow.

It's the funhouse mirror version of Progress, then. Nice!

Guys, it's happened again...Flinx has struck gold. Short, sweet, delicious gold. :trollestia::facehoof:


Okay that was good, even though I did expect that to happen. Nice work, you had Luna down perfectly.

She should try to make ramen next :pinkiehappy:


destroyed all of canterlot by making toast!?!?!? i'm dissapointed in you Luna :fluttershysad:
and you didn't even put jelly, jam or butter on the toast...

If When this gets featured, I think i'm going to have to take a break from this website for a long while.

Odd how I have to look to real world literature for an escape from this. Things usually go the other way around.

I had a smile on my face for the entire story.
You're a comedy genius and can write Luna perfectly no matter what she's doing.

Always good for a smile with these one-shots.:pinkiesmile:

There is no price on the fabulosity of a perfect piece of toast...... The Castle was expendable!!!

I loed this little nibble of comedy.... So simple... yet... so funny!!

Oh, Luna... Why you so cute trying to figure out the technology of today? XD

Luna = MLP: FiM's Mr. Burns. :moustache::moustache::moustache:

Saying average FOUR TIMES peaked my interest.
And so I have read it, and so I can relate.

While a very funny story, something caught my eye that could turn into a story all on its own.

"Lord Pipsqueak"

Luna doesn't seem the type to exaggerate when speaking of someone's station. She always struck me as very particular about that. Which means if she's calling Pipsqueak a Lord, he must be one.

So, does that mean Pipsqueak is actually nobility, or did Luna ennoble him because he proclaimed her his favorite Princess ever? Either way, that alone could make a premise for a very interesting story.

If he's Canterlot nobility, why was he - as most nobles would say - "slumming it" in Ponyville? If Luna made him a Lord, how did the rest of the nobility take it, and what effect did it have regarding his family (assuming he has one in this continuity)?

2714558 Short answer, he is nobility.

And once again we are reminded of why Luna is best princess.
One error I found:

If Luna, Princess of the Night, bolstered the power of the toaster

Pretty sure that's what you meant to say. Could be wrong. :twilightsmile:

The alchemy device. :rainbowlaugh:
Have an upvote, kind sir.

*Grammar Nazi airstrike*

"To where hast the royal chef placed the---AH-HAH!" Luna cut herself off as she spotted her desired target.

It is has or hath, since hast is the obsolete 2nd person singular present tense form of thou. Using it otherwise simply is grammatical nonsense.

"And thou said I could nay make breakfast on my own..." Luna scoffed in victory, enjoying the taste of a flaky piece of toast against her mouth.

That is thou saidst, or thou saidest. Every verb which belongs to thou needs an -(e)st ending. Exceptions are verbs in the subjuctive mood but that's not the case here because the phrase is neither a command, a wish, or a request but rather a statement.

Very cute! Luna adjusting to the modern world stories are always good for a laugh. I especially like the idea of a toaster as an "alchemical device". Thanks for writing!

I lol'd. Those toasters... Conniving contraptions are they; silvery, silent saboteurs just waiting for the right time to strike...

Bravo, good show. I spotted a typo, I think. You wrote "blustered" when "bolstered" would make more sense. Other than that tiny detail, fantastic story.:twilightsmile:

(Thou hast amused us greatly with thy tale of toasted misfortune, o humorous scribe!)
(Yes, well, let's see how funny you think it is when you get done rebuilding the castle, Lulu. By hoof. One brick at a time.) :trollestia:
(...'twas still worth it.)

The world conspires against dear Luna. Awww, one day, you will be able to get somthing right....

This is the FUNNIEST story ever!

:trollestia::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: YEA TOAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2709898 Me too. It's been long, hasn't it?

Well, at least she made toast :twilightsheepish:

"inclination" I think you meant implication.

2710659>>2714408 You're safe. Not long enough to get featured. Pony Verbs a Noun stories are part of why the 4k word requirement exists :scootangel:

I recorded a READING of this on youtube here. Hope its okay with you overlord.

Who needs a house when you have toast.


That's not a limerick. The rhyming scheme is correct but the metre not. The 3rd and 4th lines are supposed to be shorter than the 1st, 2nd and 5th.

9 syllables,

Also, "blustered the power of the toaster?"

I think you mean "bolster."

you looked so very at peace curled against your pillow. You even had that little bit of drool at the corner of your lip. You know the one. The one you get when you have flighty dreams of so-and-so. I digress. It would have been a crime to have woken you up when you seemed so happy sleeping in. Regardless, I have left

she seems like a sleep stalker watching luna sleep


Msuftacke for yor good sir. :moustache:
A;so Im drungk

...now I suddenly want to see an image of Changelings constructing a statue of Chrysalis upending an avian of some sort, with said avian flying in the direction of Canterlot Castle.

Came for the cover art, stayed for the premise.

Gotta say, though, I didn't find this as funny as some others...

Was still an amusing read, though.
