Author Tempus


This one is a story that I've wanted to do ever since I saw the episode "Cutie Mark Chronicles." Than I saw that I wasn't the only one with the idea. But, I decided to do this one anyway.

Everyone knows that Rainbow Dash was the reason the mane six got their cutie marks. Or is it? When Rainbow decides against a race against Fluttershy's bullies, everything you thought you knew about Equestria is thrown out the window.

By the way, it would be really awesome if ponies started doing fanart of how they interpret these alternate ponies. If you've done any, send them to me at a.tempus [at] derpymail.org

a word of advice. finish the chapter before posting it. its shaping up to be a good story though.

I actually JUST fixed that. Chapter one is now about...
:rainbowdetermined2: 20% cooler.

ill say.... we really need a monocle pony.

Quite so, my good chap.

well, at least pinkie can still sense us. sort of.:pinkiesad2:

And... This Is The Part Were I Run

Hmmmm.....So, Rarity has to gather together a different sort of Mane Six; given that everypony's favorite background character :derpyderp1: is one of the few not affected by this, we might just see an echo of Recursions.

Good Story so far.

i feel sad for pinkie she grew up knowing somthing is not right. :pinkiesad2:

Is Rarity one of the only ones who turned out remotely close to her real self?

Ah, yes. I'm going to get to that. In the meantime, just think "Dressed for Success."

I can't even read that. It hurts to much.

Don't worry, more is...
You're the one who wrote Legion of Gloom and League of Fanons...
And you're tracking my story...

REVENGE!! :twilightcrazy:
Wait, they wouldn't have that emoticon yet.

Gives you invitation to a prestigious school,
Purposely makes the entrance exam impossible so you don't know you're stronger than me.

no derpy whyy she is gone you should have laughed whyy, the saddest thing waqs she never got her muffins :raritycry: :ajsleepy: :fluttershbad:

And suddenly, The Elements of DEATH!

Jesus, everypony just died one after the other. The only thing that comforts me in this alternate reality is...
:raritycry: CRAZY CAT LADY RARITY!! :raritydespair:

This story is so crazy and sad .. no NEED to write more! :pinkiegasp:

And i want some short haired Fluttershy, and long haired Rainbow- pictures :twilightsmile:

I actually drew a cover for the story... I just haven't gotten around to posting it. I think that now, because of you, I will! :yay: yay YOU! :pinkiehappy:

Yes. Quite. Indead. Hmm. :duck:

Ow, man this story is cool!
Rainbow is my faourite and see her as timid as Fluttershy used to be... :D
Make more please!

This Story can't be over yet!

I .. I beg you to write more! This is just way too fascinating ..

This, sir or madame, is the kindest comment I have ever received. Thank you.
And don't worry, this story is far from over. :pinkiehappy:

And with just that one choice, the entire show changes forever. With the exception of Rarity, the other ponies never got their cutie marks. :pinkiegasp:

This could truly change things as I see it from now on and it maybe for the worse...:fluttercry:

Please do keep up the good work upon such a great idea like this one. :twilightsmile:

When will you post the next chapter?
I'm still curious about the story, please write it and publish it, we need to know how this story will go!

Glad you like the story! Although, I am currently facing a terrible disease that many authors face. That disease is writer's block. So, as much as I'd like to work on it (which I really would, I LOVE writing) I can't... BUT! There will still be more! I haven't completely given up! ^^

33225Agreed.I LOVE the story,but WHEN THE HECK ARE YOU GOING TO UPDATE?:rainbowhuh::twilightangry2:

OHMYGAH! :raritystarry: Out of all storys i picked this one!! and guess what??? :pinkiehappy: I. LOVE. IT!!! keep up this GREAT work!


Well, at least that explains why there wasn't an update in... well, a long time. :trixieshiftright:

Yay, new chapters FINALLY!

Twilight is an angry bookworm,:twilightangry2:
Rainbow Dash got put in the ER for smart-mouthing a bully,:rainbowhuh:
Fluttershy swears to stand up for herself,:flutterrage:
Applejack stays in Manehatten,:ajbemused:
Rarity still gets her play on,:raritystarry:
and Pinkamema runs away to Ponyville knowing something is wrong.:pinkiecrazy:
Very interesting.

The Summer Sun Festival looks like it's going to be interesting. I wonder who the new Elements are going to be?

There better be more to this. Five ponies DIED!! WTF!!!

One more chapter. That is all I am giving this series. If things don't start seriously going up, I'm out.:twilightangry2:

i am such a terrible person. i promised to work on this and i haven't.
i will honestly start working on it for real next week.
please please PLEASE forgive me for not updating! :applecry:

2128336 Its been 92 weeks. I NEEEDZZ MOAR.

Sorry if this sounds rude. But, just wondering, did you forget to work on it?

So am I correct : Twilight turned into an pre-Trixie. :twilightangry2:
Fluttershy : becomes the new RD and is a fillyfooler. :flutterrage:
Apple Jack :stays in a Manhattan and probably becomes Polite .:ajsmug:
Rarity : no changes:raritystarry:
Pinkie Pie / Pinkamena : Becomes a saD pony :pinkiesad2:
Rainbow Dash : becomes the new Fluttershy :rainbowkiss:

25498 Hmmm mm I never thought of that .

So Rarity is the new element of Magic . By the way , isn't Twilight trying to keep Nightmare Moon there ?:duck:
