When English teacher Connie Hayden is told by a mysterious new friend that there is a way to travel from the human world to Equestria, she doesn't believe her. But what if the legend of Pinkamena is true?

Oh my. This intrigues me.

Yes! It's here! The only self-insert-thingie I ever read that wasn't a waste of electrons!:pinkiehappy:

Self-inserts are supposed to be bad...................
I need some time to think..........
I don't know if I can read this..... I might have to wait until it's completed to start on it....
But good writer..... :fluttershbad:

Self-inserts can easily be funny and enjoyable and not be written terribly. Just look at Through the Eyes of Another Pony.

For something totally unrelated to ponies (for now. the author also wrote My Little Blackbird) go read Sleeping with the Girls. That title is 100% literal in its wording and is intended to be misconstrued as a sexual statement.

Thumbs up? Check!
Favorite? Check!
Email tracking? Check!
Loving the f:yay:k out of it? You better believe that's a check!

OHMYGODILOVEYOUSOMUCHRIGHTNOW! Really hoping it doesn't stop at four chapters here.

read the first couple of chapters that she had on her deviantart page

Wait... A HiE with a girl!? What is this madness? And why do I love it!?
You got yourself a tracker Butterscotch! :rainbowkiss:

Hmmm... I usually avoid HiE and HiEtP like a spreading disease... but somehow I decided to give this one a shot and I quite enjoyed it.
Will track and see where it goes from there.

Oh yeah, awesome chapter length. Keep 'em 5k or more, is what I says. :ajsmug:

>inb4 Esther is a p0ni
>inb4 Esther is Lyra

This is such a weird and amusing story. Does uploading it mean that a new chapter is close at hand?

aslong as this dosen't end early like some other stories (not yours other ones.) i'm gonna track this and give 5 stars.:twilightsmile:
*face palms self* right stars have been replaced with a cruddy thumbs up.:twilightsheepish:

I'm not sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, it's self insert. On the other hand, it's Butterscotch. Hmmmmmmm...
I'll read later.

Can someone please tell me what /co/ is, i really have no idea.


i think that's what luna said

... wat? :rainbowhuh:

Ha! I remember when you first started posting this on /co/. I forgot how far you got into this too.

292096 Oh, so you're spoiling the story for me... nice. :rainbowlaugh:
I wasn't aware that this fic was already 'in motion'.

This is going to be a fun one, I can tell. Tracking for the incoming vhapters!

"Now, in Australia just about the only brand of hot-sauce available is Tabasco sauce"

This is only a good thing. As a native of the great state of Louisiana, I can guarantee that McIlhenny Co. Tabasco sauce is the ONLY hot sauce you will ever want or need, EVER.

AWESOME!! It's here!! :D

its HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: all of my tracks to you.

looks good:applejackunsure:
will track to see if it gets better:twilightsmile:

Waitamo! I think I have a faint inkling of who Esther might be!


Butterscotch Sundae! *squees uncontrollably*

Adorkable-female-aussie-brony goes to Equestria? It sure beats the avalanche of socially-awkward-really-needs-to-get-other-hobbies-male-brony stories.

Ok I'll watch this one.

Is this now complete on your DA or are you copy pasting what you have of this triumph of self insert to fimfiction?
Your the best Australian Butters!


Well, that's the last time I try to write an intelligent comment on this site. Nevertheless, I like this here tail, mane.

You know, from what I've read in the comments, there's more of this story somewhere else, but I'm just chill here and wait for the rest. Cause i'ma badass like that. I'm a patient man, I mean, I can wait for TheGentlemanCreeper to update his stories, which, lately has been 4 weeks+ apart. Sure real life gets in the way, and I'm not saying I enjoy waiting, just that I can do it. And anything worth having, is worth waiting/fighting/working for. So yeah. I just hope this isn't a Bloody Mary thing going on. That'd be weird. Would it be like... Indirect suicide or something in a self insertion? My hurts brain...

keep it up, butters.

English teacher? I wish my english teacher was that awesome. Actually now that i think about it, that would probably be extremely awkward

Oh hot damn, its over here now! Does this mean it'll update soon?

I love that humans are "spaceponies" to Pinkie!

Oh, this is great. lol All of my laughter... :twilightsheepish:

I love how Pinkie's mere presence adds this breathless exuberance to the narrative. Wheee! :pinkiehappy:

Well now I am tracking and OMG Australia! Finally we get ponies but anyhow keep it up!


I don't like self inserts, I have a hard time reading first person view stories and I don't care for the humans in Equestria trope (and thinking about it, I don't go much for comedy stories either...).

So I'm completely attributing it to your skills as a writer that I'm absolutely enjoying this story so far. I'll definitely stay around for the next chapters. Keep up the great work! :pinkiehappy:

Now this is interesting. I am sure I am not alone in my feeling that I am currently breaking a personal rule of mine: 'no self inserts', but I'll be damned... I am doing it anyway!

Still, the fun bit is trying to work out just whereabouts in the city you are for a lot of this. It's been a while since I have been to Sydney, but I think I can remember the CBD well enough. (Melbourne is so much easier to navigate! D:)

Well, long story short, I am intrigued! To the next chapter!

Heh :D That is all.

I can't wait for the next chapter!

(Also, I am filled with a sudden and all-consuming desire for scotch... if I wake up tomorrow with a hangover then... then... I will have no one to blame but myself, won't I?)


Its good to see your own self insert finally in Fimfiction, Butterscotch!
... Seeing that there are still chapters that you didnt bring here, does that mean that you have a new one waiting?

Anything from Butterscotch is always good

"Pinkie was gone, and I was still here."

I wouldn't have been able to take that. :fluttershyouch:

The whole myth about self inserts being bad stems from the fact that the many beginner and/or poor writers will write them in a mary-sue kind of way due to lack of creativity. If a good and/or experienced writer writes a self insert it will be good and Butterscotch here proves that point perfectly :)

Thats all you can say! :derpytongue2:

Well this is definately getting a track! Love the story so far, which is non-fiction right? Right? :derpytongue2: eagerly awaiting chapter 3!

This is the best self insert I have ever read. Awesome
