Anonsi


Hi. I'm Anonsi. The name is a mix of Anon & Anansi the Spider if you're wondering. I thought it was clever. I don't get out much.

Heeeeelllll yeeeeeesssssssss.

I feel that I should mention that this will usually update on Mondays when I have something to update with.

I honestly don't see Fluttershy helping to defeat any of the monsters.
I do like the idea for the sequel though. Will read.

let's see where this goes shell we

Ah, but will Twilight be riding Dracula's robot duplicate back to Earth from the Moon? :duck:

Parts 2 and 3 are getting posted together because not a lot happens in Part 2. And also because I am 89% love.

I love it, very believable reactions!! btw if you do egypt next here some data on it

During the late Old Kingdom and the First Intermediate Period, the Egyptians gradually came to believe that possession of a ba (Soul) and the possibility of a paradisiacal afterlife extended to everyone. In the fully developed afterlife beliefs of the New Kingdom, the soul had to avoid a variety of supernatural dangers in the Duat (A limbo of sorts), before undergoing a final judgment known as the "Weighing of the Heart". In this judgment, the gods compared the actions of the deceased while alive (symbolized by the heart) to Ma'at, to determine whether he or she had behaved in accordance with Ma'at. If the deceased was judged worthy, his or her ka and ba were united into an akh. Several beliefs coexisted about the akh's destination. Often the dead were said to dwell in the realm of Osiris, a lush and pleasant land in the underworld.

But, if you fail, Ammit (Devourer of the Dead,” “Eater of Hearts,” and “Great of Death.”) was next, you see Ammit lived near the scales of justice in Duat, the Egyptian underworld. In the Hall of Two Truths, Anubis weighed the heart of a person against Ma'at, the goddess of truth, who was sometimes depicted symbolically as an ostrich feather. If the heart was judged to be not pure, Ammit would devour it, and the person undergoing judgement was not allowed to continue their voyage towards Osiris and immortality. Once Ammit swallowed the heart, the soul was believed to become restless forever; this was called "to die a second time".

Ammit was not worshipped, and was never regarded as a goddess; instead she embodied all that the Egyptians feared, threatening to bind them to eternal restlessness if they did not follow the principle of Ma'at.

Now that's a God I knew nothing about, and I am glad you brought it to my attention.

Very glad.

This is how you say hello in Russia: Привет

This is how you say good bye in Russia: До свидания

Sorry, couldn't help it. :pinkiecrazy:

Personally I figured that with a resurgence of of Magic on earth, numerous Old Gods would appear and sorcery would become a factor among the population. Hell, maybe bring in Cthulhu or a Shoggoth. Or at least one Gelatinous Cube.

I won't be touching the Lovecraftian Mythos in YtS. It would be too big for it, and I would need to pull out some serious nonsense to have something like Elder Gods popping into existence 5 dimensions away because of a little thing like a shot of wild magic on Not-Too-Distant-Future Earth.

Nothing extraterrestrial.

Makes sense. I have one question though... given the appearance of Odin's Eye in later chapters, how familiar are you with Norse Mythology and how much of it is going to show up here? Because if it's what I think it is, I think I like it. I like it a lot.

14861
My Knowledge of Norse Mythology is pretty average (i.e: Whatever Wiki says), and as much as I don't want to spoil anything for the people who haven't already read every episode so far on EqD, I do not recall ever saying anything about Odin's Eye.

14967
Ah, right, my bad.

You may be interested in a couple of figures by the name of Skoll and Hati.

Good story thus far (And yeah here some norse mythology you might be interested in)

In Norse mythology, Hati Hróðvitnisson (first name meaning "He Who Hates, Enemy") and Sköll (Old Norse "Treachery") are wolfs that according to Gylfaginning chases the Moon and sun across sky (Hati the night sky, Sköll chases the Sun during the day), until the time of Ragnarök when they will swallow these heavenly bodies, after which Fenrir (Son of loki the trickster god) will break free from his bonds and kill Odin. (To twilight loki would sorta reminds her of a certain draconequus)
btw heres a pic of Applebloom in the arms of a soldier

you forget to mention that said wolves were supposedly grandchild of fenrir (whose alternate name is Hróðvitnir ("Famous Wolf") and so are grandkids to the trickster god.

That was AWESOME!!! LOVE THAT BOTH HUMAN AND PONY GOT A CHANCE TO KICK THAT GUYS ASS!!!

I like it, very action packed!!

edens... where have i heard that name before

Loved that there actually was enough pieces left to make something. :trollestia:

Like it thus far.

I really like your Stories!
Please keep the good work up! Also the Episode style is really nice.

“An old fart must keep his figure after all.”

That made my day. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

Well, looks like I found a new favourite story to obsess over waiting for updates.

Very well written, despite some minor flaws like the occasional jumbled up sentence (you do a lot of rewriting, don't you?). I am looking forward to where you will be going with this. Barnes is giving me the creeps right now. Oh and I wonder if we will see some good old human-pony-loving. :derpytongue2:

22228
I do indeed rewrite an awful lot, and jumbled up sentences are my bane (as well as those little grammar errors). Feel free to tell me where I made such errors and I'll do my best to fix 'em up.
And yes, Barnes is creepy. The fact you think so means I'm doing something right for once.

Awesome stuff, also if you have Applebloom and Sweetie belle come to visit there sister heres a creature worth considering
In ancient Greek mythology, Lamia (Greek: Λάμια) was a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. Aristophanes claimed her name derived from the Greek word for gullet (λαιμός; laimos), referring to her habit of devouring children.

for you see Diodorus relate Lamia had an affair with Zeus and bore him children. When Hera, Zeus' wife, discovered the affair, she became enraged and killed the children. Driven insane with grief, Lamia began devouring other children, and, according to Diodorus, her face became hideously distorted from her grisly deed

Zeus then gave her the ability to remove her eyes to appease her grief over the death of her children. Later stories state Lamia was cursed with the inability to close her eyes so that she would always obsess over the image of her dead children. Some accounts (such as that of Horace, below) say Hera forced Lamia to devour her own children and gain her serpentine form due to Hera wrath.

Woah epic!! (So it looks like the good guys aren't the only ones who know that magic is running rampant.) now the questionm remains as to who send it.

This is REALLY, REALLY good. Nice Vinyl-Cameo, though I would have wished for a little jab at the Octavia-Vinyl-pairing so popular among the fanom.

As for the actual writing and story:
Really, really good and I did not find a single error in my first read. Plus, the background-music made the battle in the club the undeniably coolest thing to ever be written about punching skeletons. That, and the glowsticks.

Keep up the good work!

I eagerly await more!

As for the Minisode here:

Very cute and (of course) well executed. Trying to critizise you is getting hard with every time you post something. Stop improving so I can keep nagging!

But all joking aside: I love the concept, It really let's you wind down after an action-heavy chapter like the last one. Oh and I could just hug you for not abandoning your characters once they served their purpose. I hate it wenn writers do that.

Enjoy your week!

Character abandonment is the leading cause of the Scabs, and I don't want any of that.

And now for some...ominous news. :ajbemused: I am writing Episode 5 currently (current position is 10000+ words), but it is taking a ludicrous amount of time to finish. So thus begins he long pause that has blighted me for months as I struggle to actually sit down and write the darn thing. I will however be posting other stories I have written for up coming mondays that are of, shall we say, more speed-fic-y in nature. But worry not, I am still writing (if you can call it that).

This was very good, as good as the last minisode, do you think you could continue off the old one? I want to see silver spoon (Or was it diamond tiara) get her commupance

27610
The minisodes essentially act as additional back story and world building, as well as in some cases, foreshadowing. However, seeing as how I only post one every two updates and I'm still stuck on Episode 5, I may post another minisode if I run out of other stories to fill my Monday updates with.

As for having a minisode based sub-story, you'll kind of get that with later minisodes.

And don't worry...there will be a time where Diamond Tiara meets a human.

27619
This excites me. :3

Also, damn you. Damn you for Julie-bean. I actually started tearing up a little.

27722
In a good way or bad way? I can only get better if you tell me where I went wrong.

good chap (Nice to see busy bee and her family again.

WHOA

WHOA

WHOA... WAIT JUST A MINUTE

HOLD ON
DID YOU JUST SAY SOMETHING THAT WASN'T "I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IN YOUR STORY"?

Wow, this makes me sick...
...
...
Sick of waiting for more!! Damn, those are some nice fics.
By the way, from what other fic did you get the idea?

"Wow, this makes me sick..."
ohgodohgodohgodohgodohgodohgod
"Sick of waiting for more!!"
Oh man...you nearly gave me a heart attack.

But to answer your question, Yellowstone and Yellowstone the series are (very loosely) based on The Conversion Bureau written by Blaze. You can find the links to that story here: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/fic/res/60773+50.html#65485 as well as dozens of other top notch stories that follow the general idea of the world much better than mine.

Sorry for nearly killing you. xD

Thanks for the links. You rock. \m/

This story is brilliant PS will you add any Zecora?

This is truly interesting sir, i have some ideas
some smuggler (Like maybe those pony terrorist or Diamond dogs transporting some of the more dangerous creatures from equestria to earth, like Quarry eel, cockatrices etc.

Dun dun duuuuuunn.
At first I was disappointed that this was not the awesome 10,000 word epic you wrote about, but that opinion soon changed when I read it and it turned out as thrilling and awesome as ever.
Very well written, and very interesting to say the least. I truely look forward to the big part :)

...I still have no idea what the hay just happened!

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪
