Metool Bard

A weaver of tales who enjoys a good story. What more is there to say, really?



This story is a sequel to Apple Bloom and the Timberwolf

One of the flaws of the Fourth Wall Theater Troupe is that one of its founding members, Discord, doesn't keep a schedule (he's the Master of Chaos; why would he?). As such, it's very possible for him to drop in for a brainstorming session at the most inappropriate of times. Like when Pinkie Pie is supposed to be foal-sitting Pound and Pumpkin, for instance.

But perhaps it is possible to eat two cakes with one spork. After all, inspiration can strike when you least expect it, and it's almost time for the twins to go to bed, anyway. Yeah, I think you can see where this is going.

If you're not familiar with the Fourth Wall Theater Troupe, it is recommended that you check out their debut performance, which can be found in the prequel tag above.

why are these comments all deleted? that doesn't give a good impression... although the stories great so far so it should balance out

2962252 There's an innocent explanation for this, I assure you. Someone posted a random gif that had nothing to do with the story at hand. I asked about it, and he said he just wanted to be random. I said I didn't approve, and he said he understood and deleted it; along with all of his other comments in our exchange. Seeing as having my comments up would only be confusing, I did the same. :duck:

That aside, I'm glad you're enjoying the story thus far. :twilightsmile:

"You have a very slappable face."


Can't wait 'till the next chapter, as always!

2964625 my brother says that ALL the time!!!:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:
makes me wonder what he does when I'm not around...:trixieshiftright:

I don't care; I have a new headcanon.

I already have several headcannons on how Pinkie met the Cakes. One more will not hurt... :pinkiecrazy:

I really really liked this! :pinkiehappy: I love the way you wrote Pinkie and how she told the stories, it was cute and very funny to read.

Great job. :pinkiesmile:

3123531 Thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile:

DARN IT! I was planning on writing something like this one day...noooooooooooooo:pinkiesad2:

Oh, well...still an awessoem story

3150548 Well, you know what they say about great minds thinking alike and all that jazz. :ajsmug:


True...but am I really that great of a mind or just plain lucky.

3150768 To be fair, it could easily be both. :rainbowwild:

This story. I may be just spitballing here, but is the source story meant to be something about goblins who come around Hanukah and blow out the candles on the menorah?

3400665 Um, no. The original story this particular tale is based off of is called The Trolls and the Pussycat, with the Diamond Dogs playing the part of the trolls and Gummy playing the part of a polar bear who's mistaken for a cat. :twistnerd:

This story has been approved by the Sibling Story Stockpile.

Well, that's an amusing little twist on the old story of Lazarus and the giant. :ajsmug: :twilightsmile: :twistnerd:

5014839 Actually, this one was based on another story called The Stone Cheese, hence Limestone's failed ploy to get rid of the Diamond Dog. Or is Lazarus and the Giant another name for that story that I'm not aware of? :unsuresweetie:

5015443 Probably. The story as I heard it involved Lazarus' adventures, first killing 40 (flies) with a single blow and inscribing this on a belt he decided to wear around, then engaging in a contest of strength with a giant by squeezing whey out of cheese (instead of a rock) and throwing a bird (instead of a rock) so high into the air it never came down, tricking a cavefull of dragons into gathering enormous quantities of firewood for him, and finally when the dragons tired of this, evading their nighttime attack by leaving a log in his place in bed for them to whack at and wearing a few small bandages when they saw him next, for effect.

Good times! :pinkiehappy:

5015737 Wow. That's actually a lot more elaborate than the story I remember. Then again, the whole basis of this fic came from an old children's book-on-tape that I remember listening to/reading all the time when I was a kid. :derpytongue2:

"Speaking as a draconequus who had to stare at the same hedge ever since you and your friends stopped my return, yes," said Discord plainly.

Must be maddening, It would have driven him mad were he not already mad.

"You have a very slappable face."
To demonstrate her point, she slapped the Diamond Dog a few times and ran off. The Diamond Dog roared in frustration.

Best Pony. Hands down. I seriously love this pony.

"I tried to warn him," said Limestone with a shrug as Pinkie emerged from the tunnel. And with that, the Three Pony Sisters Pie had the best We Finished Our Chores So Let's Have Fun party ever! Or, at least until the next one.

She did try to warn him in her defense.

I know this song about sharing that will surely win the Diamond Dogs over!

If it's the song you sang in Over a Barrel, then don't sing it, it'll just make things worse.

Also, Gummy isn't the only one who tends to get annoyed by others shoving marshmallows up their noses.

"Oh, Pinkie. Would I do a thing like that?" asked Discord as a halo appeared above his head.
"Yes. Yes you would," said Pinkie sternly.

I like this, it shows that while Pinkie has no problems with harmless chaos and shenanigans, she knows when to get serious and that babies need their sleep.

"Very funny, Discord," she said. "No seriously, it was. But there's a time and place for this kinda thing."

Once again, I really like this, another facet to Pinkie's character.

And from that day forward, no Diamond Dogs ever bothered the Pie family's rock farm ever again. At least to my knowledge. Which I think is pretty good, since by now, they probably know better. Tee-hee~!

Discord's probably chuckling at this.

Oh my goodness, I just re-read this story and realized that you nailed Pinkie's sisters' characterizations almost perfectly BEFORE their characterizations were officially on the show. :pinkiegasp:

6662083 I've mentioned before that fanfiction foresight is a bit of a schtick of mine (though an unintentional one; I'll fully admit), and the Pie sisters are no exception to that. :ajsmug:
