I'm an old-school MLP fan, glad the new show is doing great.


An ancient tradition, a balance of power, political maneuvering of the highest order.

None of these appear here. Instead, enjoy a lighthearted look at the princesses as they try to figure out how to fit Twilight into one of their favorite activities.


I've never seen a second of Game of Thrones nor read a single page of A Song of Fire and Ice. This is is no way based off anything from that. You may thank Stryke for the impetus for me to get this done and for the cover art..

Fun little story!

Though honestly, I have to say, you've GOT to run with this. Because any plan involving the Cutie Mark Crusaders is A) A bad plan, and B) bound to be hilarious. Bring on more royal disaster!

...you're insane....

....I love your way of thinking, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo all leaned back. “CUTIE MARK CRUSADER THRONE BUILDERS, YAY!” they shouted before running off.

Twilight. What have you done. You've doomed us all.


You let them.. you ENCOURAGED them - to build thrones.

I'll start running now and beat the rush to the bomb shelters.

Beautiful ending, just beautiful :scootangel:

Twilight what are you doing. :twilightoops:
Twilight no. :twilightangry2:
Twilight, stop. :facehoof:

Sweetie Pie and Scootaloo glared at Applebloom with more than a hint of jealousy. "Whaddya know," said the farm pony, "my special talent IS throne building! Anyone know where ah can find a few hunnert swords?"

... did you just write a post-Ascension story?

Still this is funny, just showing that the Sisters can be silly without trolling made my day. And yes I do agree with the others on the ending... Twilight for being the smartest mare in the room you can be a complete and utter dumbass.


That was very funny! Even coming from you, RK!:trollestia:

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you just wait until the game starts again. There is no middle ground.

Now if only A Song of Ice and Fire worked like this; it would have only made up one book!

On this story, this was funny as hell, and that ending... Oh dear, I can just imagine them building something like the Iron Throne, especially with all the pointy ends.

Dude, be careful. My GOT story got commented. Some guy said the author is against fanfiction based on his work, and may issue. A cease and dissist.

Oh, I thought she would summon Pinkie, the princess of party games.

If something like this isn't clear for use under parody exemption, I don't know what would be. It mentions the title to make a gag and that's it.

My only question now is how you systematically eliminate the chairs as the game goes on. I MUST KNOW.

What? That's all? But what happens next? Hilarious take on a Game of Thrones though. I rather like it.

I love silly little one shots! :pinkiehappy: One of my favorites is one about Celestia, Luna, and Cadance trying to change a light bulb. :trollestia: But this one is cool too. I could almost see this as part of your Hasbroverse stories. Young Megan teaching filly Celestia and Luna how to play musical chairs, and Danny suggesting they should use their thrones. Keep up the good work.

Can I make a sequel? :scootangel::trixieshiftleft::twilightsheepish:


Also, seeing the results of the CMCTB would be delightfully hilarious.

(This is probably the closest I will ever come to the actual Game of Thrones...)

It's only now that I realized that Twilight is the only Princess without a throne :twilightoops:


Isn't this group far too small for a decent game of musical chairs? Especially when it was just two of them.

That warning would look a lot better under the "Read More"...

thanks god this isn't based on game of thrones... It's going to be painful to watch them die....

Good for a chuckle. If you ever do write a sequel it would be funny if the Princess's were discussing something like it was a major catastrophe (imagine Twilight talking like she'd always planned to betray Celestia or such) developing.....only to reveal their playing a game like RISK or Monopoly.

Twilight twisted her head around to watch them run out of the treehouse. “Perfect plan!” she said. “I'm sure everything will turn out just fine.”

How the hell are you the one getting all the views when i'm the one who's actually writing a serious homage to the books AND the show? I mean seriously, i'm six chapters in (Short ones) and there's a whole lot more political intrigue just from Discord voicing his concerns about the celestial sisters to Cadence!

I like your fic but please change the name to avoid comparison, or, something.

Fairly cute. Well done.

I, er... wha...? :derpyderp1:

Well that was unexpected. Simple but still got a chuckle out of me. :twilightsmile:

So... this is a Game of Thrones parody/crossover? Does that mean every mare's teats will be exposed, everypony ruts, and everypony dies? :rainbowlaugh:

3270584 The thing is, I've read Game of Ponies- and it needs work. Insulting another author for getting more views than you when you need to improve the grammar in your own story does not become a good writer.

3271780 I wasn't insulting you, the internet is bad at that. But what's wrong with my grammar?

3264181 Thanks, but honestly, I think it's gonna remain a one-shot. Beyond 'CMC screw up royally' :raritywink: there's not much more that can be done.

3264216 yes, i am insane. :derpytongue2: *Hands out newsletter* There you go. I brought you a letter! :derpyderp1:

3264443 But it made so much sense at the time! :twilightblush:

3265056 Good idea. beat the rush :rainbowlaugh:

3265081 Thanks, Stryke. You're to blame for this. Remember that. :p

3265172 Too late. The Throne is built. The tree sap flows.

3265862 Yes, I did. Wouldn't work otherwise. ;) And yes. For all her smarts Twilight can be rock-stupid on occasion.

3265880 lol, thanks.

3265937 I've heard it's a long series. That's about all the fully concrete info I have on the thing. And those Throne pics, too.

3266254 Compared to what she did, that would be cautious.

3266330 Thanks. Not sure if it can be called a 'take' on it. Beyond the title, got nothing in common.

3266331 Could you post a link to that one, please? Sounds good. And thank you. Sometimes you need a little cracky insanity.

3267165 Well... sure! I'd be honored. :twilightsmile:

3267287 Closest I'll ever get, too.

3267711 Watching Game of thrones, I'm guessing?

3267982 They managed. ;) Mostly they just ran around until collapsing in laughter.

3268251 I just wanted to make sure no one would come in with false or misinformed expectations.

3268265 Ouch! Yeah, good thing beyond the title there's no similarity.

3268683 *Snort* that could work as a second chapter.

3270584 ... No. I am not changing the name of this fic. And... there's no political intrigue here. So, yes. I guess you do have more!

3270965 Thank you.

3271237 Thank you. That's what I was aiming for, so cool. :)

3271875 When I originally looked at Game of Ponies, it was in need of work- the grammar seems to have been corrected since then. However, the chapters need improvement in the length department- In fact, what you've currently got would be a bit easier if you simply bundled them up into one first chapter, with the parts separated by asterisks, rather than 7 500 or so words chapters.

I know it wouldn't work otherwise, it's just you were so against the Ascension or at least seemed like when that episode happened. I was surprised to see you do a fic that had it happen, though considering you major fics take place before S3 it's understandable why it has been used.

3272269 I see, well if this were any other story I would have thousand word chapters, however. Game of Ponies is a very stylized, very specific kind of story telling and it gives me the freedom to write the chapters as short or as long as I need them to be.

That being said, I am still in the beginning stages of writing the story, introducing the characters, etc. But even if the chapters stay this short I will probably have made up for it in quantity of chapters, any, 250.


Because this story is just good fun. It's comedy that has little to nothing to do with Game of Throne. It's not meant to be anything great, and yet that's what helps make it great.

3280936 I wasn't bagging on this story, see my first comment "I like your fic but please change the name to avoid comparison, or, something." So yeah.

Also, Ice and Fire*


There's no reason to change the name. One is a comedy, the other isn't. The content should be the differentiator. Heck, there are multiple stories here with literally the same name.

3285927 I see your point, though I was trying to put more emphasis on the 'or something' part. I realize that it was a strange request to begin with.

But eh, would you mind reading Game of Ponies? I really need some input on it.


Alright, I'll put it on my read later list and .. well .... the name speaks for itself, I think.

3286209 Like, it's predictable?

3277585 If you're looking for an actual adaption of game of thrones, go check out my page.


I don't know, haven't read it yet. I was saying that the name "Read Later" tells you exactly what it means.

3286356 Kay, I wasn't really worried about that. Catch ya later though.

3265862 3272209 3272313 Wait, RK, an author I seriously respect and admire is also of the anti-twilicorn faction?


But seriously, this was a great fic. :pinkiehappy:

You now just figured that out? Well guess since RK hasn't done the usual thing and state the series is ruined forever and Twi will an mopey emo little... twit it isn't obvious
