This story is a sequel to Blueblood's Ascension; or, Alicorns Just Aren't What They Used to Be


After the ascension of Prince Blueblood, a bevy of unicorns, pegasi, and earth ponies suddenly find themselves elevated to the status of royalty. Coronation after coronation has left the Equestrian government in a tizzy.

But these stories are not necessarily about that.

Background Ascension; or, The Heart of an Alicorn [Slice of Life][Comedy]: During the after-coronation party of Vinyl Scratch, Princess of Electronic Music and Epic Remixes, several recently-appointed royals find themselves pondering their new place in life… Idea suggested by RaptorCalloftheShadows.

Brother's Ascension; or, Alicorn Sales-Ponies Nonpareil [Comedy]: While prowling Equestria for new towns in which to sell their wares, Flim and Flam Flimflam find themselves in the dark, mysterious, and not-at-all spooky town of Hollow Shades. There, they stumble upon a chance to create something never before considered: Zap Apple cider.

Backstory Ascension; or, Apple Alicorns are Anonymous [Slice of Life]: As Applejack works the fields, an uncomfortable thought comes up. With the seeming ease that some ponies come by their ascensions, why hasn't Granny Smith become an alicorn yet?

Beauty's Ascension; or, An Alicorn Love Story [Romance][Slice of Life]: After Soarin ascends to alicornhood, he finds himself a might stressed out. With a little "prompting" from his superiors, he decides to take an extended vacation to Ponyville. As it turns out, there's somepony there he'd like to meet.

Bogus Ascension; or, Alicorns Don't Count for Much Nowadays [Comedy][Slice of Life]: A week after Lightning Dust ascends to alicornhood, Rainbow Dash still struggles with doing something awesome enough to make that mystical cut. The prismatic pegasus of Ponyville finds herself wallowing in a specific form of jealousy, one that will drive her on to better things. At least, that's the idea. Requested by Seether00.

Badguy Ascension; or, An Alicorn's Crime of Fashion [Comedy]: King Sombra just ascended. Whoops. Requested by Admiral Ackbar

Blank Flank Ascension; or, A Very Alicorn Hearth's Warming Eve [Slice of Life][Sad]: A blank-flank has ascended. Who is this filly? How did she ascend? And just what in the hay is going on with the Equestrian Budget?

it wasn't irrelevant to my interests. the part where celestia talks to redheart about princesshood and how it's not how everyone is blowing it up to be is very deep and is going to be a favorite scene for a while.

Expansion please. Your one of the few people who have balanced the whole lots of alicorn with an equal balance of logic and comedy.

If even a shitty pony like Lyra can be a princess, where does it end? Princess Carrot Top, Our Lady of Prop Comedy? Princesses Flitter and Cloudchaser, Hottest Twins in the Land? Prince Davenport, Master of Comfortable Furniture and Writing Utensils?!

Princess Celestia needs a fucking drink.

The 'Headcanon Accepted' lines were jarring... But all in all, a nice story. Vinyl and Lyra as harsh friends comes across natural, while the scenes with Redheart and Celestia are both heartwarming and amusing.

Y'know, Prince Davenport would be pretty awesome.

I'm really liking Princess Redheart. Although, you know, I bet Celestia turned down the requirements or something to get Twilight to become an Alicorn. This is probably all her fault, eyup. :eeyup:

So it occurs to me, that a somewhat-redeemed-but-still-idiotic Blueblood could do with a pragmatic mare like Redheart. He's like the Bertie Wooster of the series now-- Say, Red and Blue are both like, colors, so it's meant to beeeee! Bluered/Redblue 4eva. :rainbowkiss: Ship all the ponies!

The fact that hardly anyone is reading your work is criminal. This short, fluffy fanfic was not without a healthy dollop of heart. Every character came off with depth and believability, even the one-noters like Rainbow Dash and Braeburn. You didn't just write a story, you wrote a short glimpse into a much bigger world.

And every word of it was beautiful.

This was totally relevant to my interests. I enjoyed it immensely:pinkiehappy:

the part where celestia talks to redheart about princesshood and how it's not how everyone is blowing it up to be is very deep and is going to be a favorite scene for a while.

Thank you, I do think i'm getting better at writing that kind of scene. It means a lot to hear that the story will stick with you like that. :twilightsmile:

2713648

Expansion please.

Sequel, Seether. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Your one of the few people who have balanced the whole lots of alicorn with an equal balance of logic and comedy.

Even thought Blueblood's Ascension takes place on Earth, I do plan to explore this world a bit more as well. Check it out. :ajsmug:

2713686

If even a shitty pony like Lyra can be a princess,

Ouch. :rainbowwild:

where does it end? Princess Carrot Top, Our Lady of Prop Comedy? Princesses Flitter and Cloudchaser, Hottest Twins in the Land? Prince Davenport, Master of Comfortable Furniture and Writing Utensils?!

"Maybe" to all of those, though i've already come close to including His Excellency of the Couch.

Hmm...

Vinyl Scratch, Princess of Electronic Music and Epic Remixes
Nurse Redheart, Princess of Hospice
Lyra Heartstrings, Princess of Meledies
Braeburn Apple, Prince of Pioneering
Prince Blueblood, Crown Prince of Equestria
Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Friendship
Celestia, Princess of the Sun
Luna, Princess of the Moon

And that's just the ones i've mentioned... Yikes. :twilightoops:

2713760

The 'Headcanon Accepted' lines were jarring...

'Twas jarring, I suppose. But you'll have to excuse a little bit of "Twice Meta" humor when i'm writing Lyra. I'm none too keen on fitting her human fixation into my stories, so I find other way to portray her as odd.

But all in all, a nice story. Vinyl and Lyra as harsh friends comes across natural, while the scenes with Redheart and Celestia are both heartwarming and amusing.

Thanks.:scootangel: I'm glad you liked it.

2714056

Y'know, Prince Davenport would be pretty awesome.

Agreed. I'll have to see if he wouldn't fit in with the Pony Pantheon.

I'm really liking Princess Redheart. Although, you know, I bet Celestia turned down the requirements or something to get Twilight to become an Alicorn. This is probably all her fault, eyup. :eeyup:

Dagnabit, Celestia, stop grading on a curve! :flutterrage:

So it occurs to me, that a somewhat-redeemed-but-still-idiotic Blueblood could do with a pragmatic mare like Redheart. He's like the Bertie Wooster of the series now-- Say, Red and Blue are both like, colors, so it's meant to beeeee! Bluered/Redblue 4eva. :rainbowkiss: Ship all the ponies!

:pinkiegasp:

That's... That's several flavors of brilliant. That's gloriously... glorious.

Not only RedBlue, but HeartBlood. It truly is meant to be!

Hang on, I gotta go burn my BlueLight notes...

2714589

Let me start by saying that this comment means so much to me. I never would have thought that anyone would feel this way about one of my stories.

The fact that hardly anyone is reading your work is criminal.

I'm getting there, though. I mean, in the past week two stories landed in the feature box. I hadn't even had one, before. :pinkiesmile:

This short, fluffy fanfic was not without a healthy dollop of heart. Every character came off with depth and believability, even the one-noters like Rainbow Dash and Braeburn. You didn't just write a story, you wrote a short glimpse into a much bigger world.

I don't even know what to say besides "thank you." It was a pleasure to write.

And every word of it was beautiful.

Even the occasional typo? :raritywink:

2714780

You made me laugh, therefore it was good :pinkiehappy:

Great! It's my inner Pinkie Pie playing around periodically. :pinkiehappy:

2715016

This was totally relevant to my interests. I enjoyed it immensely :pinkiehappy:

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading! :twilightsmile:

Even the occasional typo?

Beauty in imperfection, my friend.

2719087

Heh. Alright, fair enough. :twilightsmile:

If you'll permit a bit of nostalgia, I'm reminded of my art teacher: "I like it. It's crude, but I like it."

Of course, I'll never stop striving for perfection. :scootangel: Failing, too, but that's beside the point.

Soarin, Wonderbolt Co-Captain and Prince of the Storm

Awesome.

3092792

I know, right? I think I'm gonna have to do a short-story about him, too. :rainbowdetermined2:

“What’s eating you, Nurse Redheart?”

If I were to guess, I'd say that it usually is Nurse Coldheart.
:pinkiecrazy:

“Look at us, we’re immortal, untouchable! We’re gonna do things nopony ever dreamed about!”

But remember that, in the end, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

3103301

But remember that, in the end, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

Only one alicorn? You must be new here. :raritywink:

Jokes aside, that song pretty much captures Vinyl's sentiment perfectly.

3105905

Mmm, musty skittles. Ehee! :pinkiehappy:

You know, I wrote that down, and even I'm having trouble picturing it. Some things were not meant for Man to know. :derpyderp1:

3168201

Yes it is. So very, very silly. :derpytongue2:

As Rarity said to Twilight, "It's your destiny, embrace it!" And so I embrace the silly. :pinkiehappy:

Damn, that's a lot of alicorns. I love how you are turning it both into a mundane thing, but still having each pony earn it somehow.

3178610

Ah ha! So you obeyed my command. MUAHAHAA!

Yes! Muhuhahahaha! Heh. :pinkiecrazy:

It was a good idea, for sure and for certain!

Now give me Alicorn Flufflepuff and I shall be pleased.

Noooo promises. I won't definitively say "no," but I don't feel so keen on using other people's OCs.

I would be all over a Button Mash's Mom alicorn, otherwise. :twilightblush:

Damn, that's a lot of alicorns. I love how you are turning it both into a mundane thing, but still having each pony earn it somehow.

It is deliciously oxymoronic, so thinks I. We have more alicorns to come, so don't touch that dial!

Ah... nice. Good to see the whole alicorn thing could predate Cadence and Twilight. Next vicitm.. I mean candidate please. I really like how you are staying away from the mane six and being creative.

Big Mac hoof-wrestling with Celestia may be my favorite thing out of the comics yet. The ferris wheel ride could be a close second, however.

Ohh god please let AB ascend. Just to tick off AJ. pleeeaasseeeeee:fluttershysad::raritystarry::duck:

Applebloom, princess of stoppers and removing things with your teeth?:rainbowwild:

3244379

Next vicitm.. I mean candidate please.

Next victidate has been selected, and has entered the story queue, so to speak. :pinkiehappy: No-Prize to anybody who guesses who it is.

I really like how you are staying away from the mane six and being creative.

Yeah, there's so many stories focusing on them becoming alicorns, it's almost easier to come up with new stories with these backgroundish characters. It gives me a breath of fresh air just writing them. :twilightsmile:

3245313

Big Mac hoof-wrestling with Celestia may be my favorite thing out of the comics yet. The ferris wheel ride could be a close second, however.

I want to read the comics so darn bad. (from what i've seen, my favorite scene's the one with Diamond Tiara's Psychiatric Help 5-cents) :twistnerd:

3245540

Ohh god please let AB ascend. Just to tick off AJ. pleeeaasseeeeee:fluttershysad::raritystarry::duck:

What I kinda want to see is what would happen if somepony ascended before getting their cutie mark. Hmm... :trollestia:

3245839

Applebloom, princess of stoppers and removing things with your teeth?:rainbowwild:

Apple Bloom, Princess of Blank Flanks if I was feeling mean. :scootangel: But I don't feel mean.

I got it! Princess of Eighties Rock! She's a real show stopper!

3250210 If you don't mind pirating, I can message you a download link. Considering I've bought every issue in multiple covers, I think I have the karma built up to excuse it.

3250340

Thanks, but I got it covered. I'm fine with paying retail, it's just a matter of time, is all. :twilightsmile:

I can definitely see Granny Smith being an alicorn all along and just not bothering to tell anypony, just sitting there and doing her work. That is totally her style.

3260811

Oh yeah. In my headcanon, Granny Smith is the original cool old lady. :ajsmug:

just not bothering to tell anypony

"Why didn't you tell us, Granny?"

"You din' ask!"

Sombra needs to ascend next, if only to see him in the waiting line.

3296761

He's not "next," but don't discount him appearing down the line. :trollestia:

Alicorn Princess of Divine Cakes, Cup Cake

They sure are, your majesty...

Loved it! Alicorns in love, and Dinky pushing it on on her mom makes sense.

I now have a request.
I kinda want to the see alicorn princess Lightning Dust. Why? Just to piss the heck out of the Dash, that's why. I think it would be hilarious and might lead Dash to the a similar question as AJ. Why not me/us? Trixie did it.

It's a nice inversion of the typical only the element bearers get to ascend meme.

Aww, that was adorable! Soarin's writing really captured the essence of his feelings, in a way that was better than simple inner monologue.

That was great! And they have a ship name that works out nicely, hehe.

Soar Hooves or Derrin Do? :derpytongue2:

Have picture of adorableness!

derpicdn.net/img/2012/11/4/142415/large.png

Oh, yes. You should definitely try the caramel drizzle confection. Tis worthy of much praise! :trollestia:

3339843

Thank you very much! :twilightsmile:

I like it... I like it! The concept, the characters... Yes, I do believe I can make that work.

Yeah, i'll get to writing that one and release it as the next chapter.

Any excuse to write Rainbow Dash, I always say...

Hmm, time to rewatch Lightning's episode a few dozen times. :rainbowdetermined2:

3340680

Aww, that was adorable! Soarin's writing really captured the essence of his feelings, in a way that was better than simple inner monologue.

I'm glad you liked the journal style. It's been a personal challenge of mine to avoid using internal monologues, at least since my second story. It always seems like they're one of the more prevalent examples of "telling" in a story.

It helps me stay creative when I can't use them, too. :scootangel:

3341105

Not bad, I liked it.

E-e-excellent! :twistnerd:

3344116

That was great! And they have a ship name that works out nicely, hehe.
Soar Hooves or Derrin Do? :derpytongue2:

Oh, most certainly Derrin' Do, it even combines Derpy's two names! :derpytongue2:

Have picture of adorableness!

Oh, gosh, I have the stupidest grin on my face right now. That's perfect! :raritystarry:

Bill and Ted's Bogus Ascension? Count me in!

... I should probably read it now.

I'm your friend, Dust! Don't listen to them! Go find Gilda and Trixie. You can can form your own Elements, with booze and hookers.

You have made a grave error, Spitfire.

Cuss you for not making this a screwball comedy. Cuss you so much.

3432143

NOTCH ALICORN!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTCH? The creator of Minecraft? But how would that... Could that even... How could I...

How would that even work!? :raritydespair:

3432156

Bill and Ted's Bogus Ascension? Count me in!
... I should probably read it now.

That is usually recommended, yes. :twilightsmile:

3432175

I'm your friend, Dust! Don't listen to them! Go find Gilda and Trixie. You can can form your own Elements, with booze and hookers.

Indeed, indeed! Expect her to pop up occasionally in future stories. :twistnerd:

You have made a grave error, Spitfire.

The air chilled as Spitfire sat in the empty room, devoid of windows or doors. She meekly projected her voice into the darkness. "H-hello?"

"Hello, Spitfire," a voice said out of the darkness. A royal shade of purple fell across her. "I am Seether00. I have been expecting you."

Again, most profuse apologies. :unsuresweetie:

3432194

Cuss you for not making this a screwball comedy. Cuss you so much.

I will say that we're overdue for a screwball comedy! The next story on my list is indeed a completely scratch your head, pick your nose, wiggle your ears screwball comedy. :pinkiehappy:

The three stars demand it be screwball. But not Screwball. But I should do her, too, eventually.

3432270
SH.......HES NOTCH......ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!!!!!!!
Plus he has made a million dollar game.....yeah.HE IS EVERYTHING!!!!!

3432274

Yes... Yes, I can see it all clearly now. Truly, this is the greatest alicorn prince of all time. Maybe even better than Blueblood...

...

But how would that even work!? :raritycry:

3432300

Sad to say that she does. But she's not a total loss, I'd like to mention...

3435239

I love Dash's plan, she sure doesn't think small.

Never in her life! Always bigger, always better. :rainbowdetermined2:

Mandible is great, changelings are so much fun.

Yeah he is. I kinda envisioned him as a one-scene wonder in Blueblood's Ascension Part II, but I liked his character enough to cross him over into this and Blueblood's Ascension Part III. Expect hijinks. :trollestia:
