I type stories using my hands


Strange nightmares are plaguing the ponies of Equestria.

Somepony must help ponies to face their deepest fears, but unless Princess Luna is able to discover who—or what—is responsible, the nightmares may never end.

Scootaloo is ready to prove that she can be as fearless as her big sister, Rainbow Dash, even if it means never having a peaceful night's sleep again.

After reading Anthropology a while ago, I've wanted to read something else from you...

And I guess this will be that. It'll be great :rainbowdetermined2:

Yay, new JTH story! :twilightsmile:

Screw work; I can do overtime later, :trixieshiftright:

I guess that answers MY question!

~Skeeter The Lurker

Oh yes. Oh my god yes.

Scootaloo and Luna, in an adventure story?

This... Needs to get to the box. Like, now.

~Skeeter The Lurker


It has been a while, hasn't it? :pinkiehappy:

Believe it or not, I have an idea similar to this waiting in the wings (surprisingly similar, actually). I guess great minds think alike. :ajsmug:

As for this story, well, it's a decent setup. It certainly leaves a lot to the imagination, and makes me eager to read more. But my question is why does Luna need Scootaloo's help? She seems to be handling things just fine. Heck, neither this nightmare nor whatever is causing it even put up a fight. So, why is Scoot needed? And furthermore, why her? Why not Twilight or Celestia? Doesn't she go into their dreams, too? :unsuresweetie:

Now, let me be clear: I'm not against this concept. Like I said, I have a similar idea myself. But you need to set a precedent. Show us why Luna needs help, and show us why she needs Scootaloo specifically. And no, Scoot facing her fears isn't gonna cut it. Despite what Luna says, that isn't all that special. Trust me, explaining these things isn't gonna spoil the mystery one iota. :duck:

Calling it now: by the time this story ends Scootaloo is going to have a dream-based Cutie Mark.

huzzah! we are blessed with another jasonthehuman story!:twilightsmile:

Ohoho. OhoHOhoho. Oh this is shaping up to be a potentially awesome story. I really dig the concept. Great intro chapter, it did a great job of setting up the story. Characterizations were great too, took me a while to figure out it was a nightmare.

Now, the real question: why Scootaloo? I'm sure Luna knows, but I hope it will start to become clear soon. We'll just have to trust the princess, and the author. :pinkiesmile:

3034507 Let us make it so!

Kind of odd for Luna to recruit a foal like this, so I can't help but wonder if they it's really Luna at all.

Oh, this will be good. Very, very good. Can't wait to see what happens next! :pinkiehappy:

I await the madness!

This is gonna be great!

:scootangel::applecry::unsuresweetie: and CMC tag. Isn't that redundant?

“Huh?” Sweetie Belle sat up, suddenly alert. It looked like she had been even more spaced out than Scootaloo had been. “Uh… What was the question?”
Sweetie shook her head. “I don’t think so. It didn’t work so well last time. I don’t think any of us are getting our cutie marks on stage.”

Poor Sweetie. It looks like she got a visit from whatever is causing the nightmares, too.

At first, you had my curiosity... Now, you have my attention.

This looks like it is going to be a good story. Can't wait for future updates.

I wish you the best of luck in all your future endevors.

Much love, Harvey Birdman.

So this is like Inception + Persona 4

Just when I thought I would never see anything coming from Jason . . . this appears. Are we going for another epic? Because I'm ready for another epic.

The Horn of JasonTheHuman shall sound in the deep . . . one last time.

WE RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The whole "face your fears" thing got kinda repetitive when skirts spammed it every other paragraph in that dark comedy he wrote. Though I still wonder why Scoots got chosen, besides the fact that its Scoots. Wouldn't a lucid dreamer be better?

Yeah, this is going to tear apart FiMFiction. FEATURE BOX, PREPARE YOURSELF!

This begs the question: Who would win in a fight? Freddy Kruger or Princess Luna?

I have noted that the few foolish nightmares that dared to show themselves in my mind long ago never come back.


3040165 I'd face my fears... if I had any left.

The only thing resembling fear I have is more akin to disappointment, and it's based on several as-yet-unknown components and qualities of the multiverse.

(Alondro is a High Elemental now...) :pinkiecrazy:

You know what I did to my nightmares? Cuz I have no clue. I don't remember anything, and it makes sleeping kinda boring. I still haven't figured out how to go lucid on command, either.

This seems like a really cool idea, but I hope we get some kind of explanation as to why Luna is recruiting a foal for a dangerous mission. It seems out of character for her to do this without a really good reason.

3041297 My dreams are mostly about various picturesque countrysides and towns that my brain makes up. That, and various weather phenomenon.



If this ends up being a nightmar eon elm street crossover, I'll be happy.

Even if it isn't, with a bucking awesome storyline and fun, engaging characters, I'll STILL be happy.

Overall, this story is a win-win. Kudos to you my good author!:moustache:

Scootaloo: Equestrian Dream Ranger...nah, that's silly.:ajbemused:

I can already kinda predict the ending

We have absolute proof that wing size means absolutely nothing to pegasi.


If that monstrosity can get off the ground, then Scoots can certainly find a way! :scootangel:


not bad, i really like the idea!, its something new i never read before. so why scoots? thats the only thing thats bugging me, a tiny explanation of that would be nice but other than that hhope to see the next chapter soon! :D

That purple pony's wings look like malformed ribs from this angle.

3041954. I think it might be a reference to when Luna helped Scootaloo with her own bad dreams.



yeah but still doesn't explain why she picked her. is she said that "hey your the only pony who knows i do this stuff." then yeah id like that X3

3041986 I SECOND THAT NOTION! :pinkiecrazy:

3042012 Interesting... Now I need to think of something else to say so I don't feel stupid.

3038615 It's for filtered searches. As long as the character box has room, there's no downside.

Somepony is other than Luna is going though other ponys' Dream I need to know what happens next!:raritydespair:

Dohoho. Another story. With a nice little tag on the end.

Darn you. I was planning on a story with almost the exact same premise. But I'll look to what you've done for ideas, nonetheless.

Using small foals to fight some evil? That's something I have a hard time accepting, I mean its not like Luna would ask for other ponies to risk their lives; usually Celestia is the one to do so.


So, the nightmare seem to be attached to an object near them?

Maybe an enchantment to cause the nightmare?

Also... Button Mash. You too?

~Skeeter The Lurker

cool story, i wonder what would happen if they took sweetie to the crystal empire now...

its cool how your story progresses from dream to day. an interesting idea, normally stories go from day to night and show the significance of the dream in the next chapter. i find your way much nicer to read :)

Ya know, Scoots can't keep that secret forever.

Wait, why can't she just tell AB? Surely Sweetie Belle will remember when she wakes up, though.

3071708 If she does wake up, DUN DUN DUUUUUN

Great job, Scoots. You broke Sweetie Belle. :ajbemused:
