I write pony words. Millions of them. Some people actually think they might be worth reading. I am very thankful for that. Also, I have a Patreon now?

E

The sky ship: a pinnacle of Equestrian technology. With it, unicorns and earth ponies can now soar in the sky. On top of that, it now makes transporting massive amounts of wealth across city lines with a speed never before seen.

With mobile wealth comes pirates.

With pirates, comes the Mane Six.

Heh. Sky pirates for the win.

I loved it.

~Skeeter The Lurker

2717355wtf did I just watch.... I need a link for this....

.... I knew you would make rarity that way... Lol:duck:

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

5 out of 4 mustaches! :yay:

If there's one thing I love more than pirates it's sky pirates, this was a fun read for sure.

*pauses while reading*

"You were her mentor, Twilight, what defenses can we expect?" asked Fluttershy.

???

Scratch that, reverse it? *insert Wonka here*

What a great one shot! This would make a great series if you expanded it, but man does it work like this! I had an inkling that Celestia was behind this, but once they were led into the throne room, I wasn't all that sure anymore. Anyhoo, great work! And I saw you hit the 1,100 followers mark, congratulations! :twilightsmile:

2718679 Thanks! have you enjoyed the latest chapters of Word is Fear as well?

2718698 Oh yes! You should have seen my face when I saw what happened to Blossom's grandparents. It was like this: :derpyderp1: only with less derp eye.

And the heavy xenophobia running rampant is surprising as well. It's not often one sees that amount of blatant profiling in a MLP fic, unless it's stuck up unicorns who think they're better, and one especially doesn't see one where the unicorns are on the receiving end of the mistreatment. Not sure where I stand on that... where I would certainly take all precautions against Blossom, events in the past 70 years show that forcing a race out such as we did with Japanese Americans during WWII makes me a little uneasy about what is happening to the unicorns because of Blossom. GRRRR, I don't know! Every twist and turn, and you've still got me on the edge of my seat!

2718745 Right where I want you. :pinkiecrazy: Wait until you see what happens next

2718778 Oh jeez, I can't wait! :pinkiehappy:

I apologize to everyone in advance for this;

2718884
Shit, I was just about to post that! :rainbowlaugh:

2718884 *starts crying in a corner*..... Never again....never again!!!!!!!!

Awww... Robbing stagecoaches isn't nearly as fun as pirating...

What? Lolololol I enjoyed this so much more than I should have. :rainbowlaugh:

Only error I found was

It was a delightful time for he pegasi, but their ground-bound counterparts felt a little cheated.

Add a t

Not bad. :moustache: :moustache: :moustache: :moustache: I do very much enjoy a good sky pirates story. There aren't enough of those stories in the world. I do feel that some points were just a bit too foggy, but that's the point of a one-shot I suppose.

Boredom is one helluva drug :twilightoops:

i volunteer for the new imperial pirate crew!

2718884
Do it the right way, with Alestorm!

Man, now i want to play the games again.

2720291
Or Running Wild's Under Jolly Roger! Though in this case Therion's cover of it :scootangel:

Sky pirates? You wouldn't happen to be a certain EQD prereader, would you?

2719685 ya got that right

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!!!!!!!!:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

THIS IS THE TALE! OF CAPTAIN FLUTTERSHY!

Oh, BTW (INCOMING NINJAGO REFERENCE!!!!) you should've used Destiny's Bounty instead! XD

2720426
No, he wouldn't.

That certain EqD pre-reader happens to be throwing things against the wall and praying for death at the moment, as a matter of fact.

- Hooray we're pirates!
- Let's go loot that boat!
- We got their treasure!
- Oh no! Ambush!
- Noo we've been caught! Oh well. Don't care.
- Celestia looks kinda angry...
- but she really isn't! The feast was delicious!
- Nuuu! We can't go pirating anymore!:raritydespair:
- Ooh! Stagecoaches!

I've spent about a month putting 16k words into a story/extended universe with pretty much this exact concept. I was set to finish editing it and put it up today.

Rage-inducingly inconvenient timing for me, is all.

2721572 Oh... yes, I've just looked on your profile Mr. Likes Sky Pirates.

Um...

...

...

I take it this is never getting on EqD then. I have earned your eternal ire.

S... sorry... I had no idea.

My bad. :derpyderp2:

Yay pirates! Those stagecoaches are in for some bad luck...:pinkiecrazy:

2721572

Hey, I'd still read it anyway. This story here only had like 2k words. More expansion would be great!

I wish there was more, this is awesome.

2720278

All or nothing, scrub.

Adventure Galley - Running Wild

Depends if we're talking Western or European Stage coach robbery.

Highwayman vs Wild West Bandito favor very different styles. The former is essentially very localized land piracy, while Wild West is well the Wild West.

Damn it Now I want to see a Magnificent Seven tribute with Ponies.

Not a cover of "You are a Pirate". Unless you're trying to make a point of mentioning Running Wild, in which case you're the third to mention them :scootangel: But all good. Can never have too much metal \m/ <insert "Brothers Of Metal" chorus here>

"Rarity nodded and gathered all of them up before tossing them overboard."
...Aren't they in the sky?
...Did Rarity just murder seventeen guards?

Hey, BronyWriter! I have just riffed this story for Carts' Unicorn Theater. If you've ever seen Mystery Science Theater 3000, it's just like that except it's for fanfics. I basically take someone's story and insert my lines of witty dialogue here and there. Obviously, it's all in good fun and there's no harm intended. :pinkiehappy:

Here's my Riff of The Mane Six Are Pirates

And here is the main page of Carts' Unicorn Theater, where you can find other stories I've riffed.

interesting story!
