Everything changes for Twilight Sparkle and her friends when a mysterious extraterrestrial ship crash lands in Equestria. When Twilight messes around in the ship's systems with her magic, she ends up transported to an alien world unlike anything she imagined: a box canyon in the middle of nowhere.

To get home, Twilight must enlist the help of the eccentric Red and Blue soldiers that live there... if she can get them to stop bickering first! Additionally, she finds herself being pursued by the enigmatic military agency known only as Project Freelancer. Back in Equestria, all is not well for Twilight's friends as forces involved with the crashed ship make themselves known. Reds, Blues and ponies will all have to work together to discover the mysterious connection between Equestria and Project Freelancer.

A crossover with Red vs Blue. Written with the intention for the story to be followable without having watched the series. (just don't expect to get all the references).

Now with editors! BradtheBrony and Rough_Draft.

I made a blog post explaining things. You should read it.

Let me be the first to say that this is probably the best idea ever. As a fan of Red vs Blue this was a good story. I look forward to reading more!

Haha this is awesome. More pls? :pinkiehappy:

I'll be sure to check this one out later. After all, its only fair. I'm assuming this takes place at the end of season 3/beginning of reconstruction. Am I right?

Having seen all ten seasons, I can honestly say, this was awesome. The guys are in character, the why are we here bit is classic RvB, and even the ponies seem to be enjoyable. Faved and liked. :pinkiehappy:

3569711 Thanks! Yeah, writing for the RvB guys is tons of fun!

3569682 You are correct in your assumption! Everything is explained in my most recent blog post!

3569669 Don't you worry. More is coming! :pinkiehappy:

3569564 WHOOOOOOAAAAH! Yes, future chapters won't quite be that long

3569542 Would you say it's the best idea ever... of all time? :rainbowwild: probably not, there's a lot of ideas out there but I'm glad you like it!

Blew my mind hope you make more

Thank you for making this. It's been awhile since I read a RvB/MLP FIM story

Great chapter. Big fan of Red and Blue. Though i'm seriously behind on the episodes. Do you know any place other than Youtube where i can find all the episodes?

While you probably would have been better off using the 'what happened to Georgia' premise rther than 'how the shpi took a year to crash', you made this almost as good as the My Little Caboose series and I will follow it.

Do not screw this up.

3570640 Rooster Teeth's website my good sir! Seasons 1 through 11 and all the miniseries are there!

3570748 Well, in this particular continuity the ship never makes it to Valhalla, and crashes into Equestria a few days after the Season 5 finale.

Though I have to admit... the idea of Equestria being the place where Georgia ended up is hilarious! Sounds like a great idea for a spinoff!

3570804 Make that spinoffand I'll follow you.

Oh, and one thing I forgot to point out, Tucker's aromour colour is cyan. Carolina is teal.

:rainbowlaugh: i lost it at the mention of Donut twerking :rainbowlaugh:

I read this in the Georgia font

Please, disregard the sin worthy pun in this comment. :pinkiehappy:

3570758 Thank you for letting me know.:pinkiehappy: I look forward to reading more of you're story.

This is for read later...so long...

3570824 Is that right? All these years I thought it was teal...

Huh.

3570640
Their website: roosterteeth.com
They have all the episodes and have just recently finished season 11.

3571003 The dvd character profiles say cyan.

3571097
but in season (i forgot what season it was the season they first met andy and the elite) 6 (i think) he says his armor is aqua

3571015 Thank you for taking the time to tell me.

3571126 Aqua is only a vague term. It's typically divided into two separate colours.
Cyan is aqua with a significant green tone, and teal has a significant blue tone.

OH MY GOD, YOU F**KING RULE!
I have never seen an RvB crossover story before! Crossovers aren't really my thing though, but regardless of that you are an amazing person just for doing it.
You stay classy, amazing writer.
This could be the best idea ever. Of all time.

Hey, another RvB crossover. Hopefully this one isn't going to be knee-deep in the seasons that I haven't watched yet.
3571343
There's this one too.

This is going to take a while to read...

3571366
Oh, son of a. . .over 250 chapters.
Holy Shit.
I can't feel my torso.
Although, they sorta alluded to this in the series:
Tucker: What do you want, Caboose?
Caboose: I want a pony.
Oh and by the way, Caboose thinks Sheila is Derpy.
Observe: "Sheila! Come back to me! I made you a muffin!"
but aside from that, I know where all my night hours are going. I don't need sleep. *eye twitches while face sculpts itself into a manic grin*

I got the reference to season 1

I LOVE RVB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

GGRRrr
[Oh my god, how did you get so popular. I was planning on making a RvB fic, but I am a bit worried that it won't be as popular as yours.]

Hey, you and me are both doing RoosterTeeth crossovers. How about that?:ajsmug:
I really enjoy where this is going. Keep up the good work, and good luck on your travels!

3571634
That shouldn't deter you from writing and posting. Just because some people might not see it or like it doesn't mean that it's a bad writing. If you really want to do it, then go for it!
...if that's okay with you, of course:fluttershysad:

3571682
GGRRrr
[Thanks for the encouragement.]

I bet Donut is going to go full on girly when he sees an actual unicorn:rainbowlaugh:

Two things that bother me: 1) In the third section, when AJ is trying to pry Pinkie Pie off of the filly's tail, you spelled "released" as "real leased." You might want to change that. 2) In the fifth section, you boldface every emotion that Omega puts off. What the f**k is with that?

Other than that, I like this idea. Just keep on rolling, and you'll do fine.

Favourite and Like...for now.

(P.S.: I enjoyed the reference to season 1 of RvB. That was cool!)

first off, I am a huge fan of RVB, loved the Twi and Spike rendition of Blood Gulch Chronicles Episode 1
my theories so far: Pinkie is infected with Omega, and after the computer dive either Gamma or Sheila had a hand in sending Twi to Blood Gulch but if she is infected with either is unknown at this moment

bravo bravo bravo hope for more

Hmm this has potential. Wonder why Gamma would send Twilight to Blood Gulch?

Also good to see Church. I was missing him from Season 11.

You've definitely got the tone down for the RvB characters I think. Loved the "Artificial,.. Intelligence" call out.

I think the "You ever wonder why we're here?" scene was great in concept, but it seemed a bit forced as I'm pretty sure you just slightly modified the dialog from the series. A bit more modification to make it more "pony" would have done it good I think, but it's still far better than I would have done (I've put some thought into writing my own RvB crossover and wouldn't have thought of using this reference),.

Hope you're just taking Google Translated lines for Lopez's dialog (supposedly that is what the RvB guys do, or did at some point anyway). :)

Favorited, looking forward for future updates... interested to see where you'll take this, sounds like you're rewriting Seasons 6-10. Lots of good story there to mess with.

Also, nice title. Have no idea what it means, but it sounds good and original and isn't "Twilight in Blood Gulch lol" so that's great.

3569682

The RvB scene in the beginning is from the Season 5 finale.

3571420

Check the word count, he used to write one a day so they're all pretty short... and some are in need of some editing.

It's pretty much several stories in one. He is also writing a sequel which seems to be on hiatus at the moment.

He was going to go back and edit the first story to have bigger, less chapters and so forth. Possibly he's doing that now considering he hasn't posted any new chapters in forever.

There's some weird things in there he does that don't really make a whole lot of sense from a story perspective (IE a bunch of characters get some character building, but then he kills them off without resolving their B plotlines, then immediately brings them back... I got whiplash from it I swear. I LIKED those characters, but still.) but I think it's worth a read.

3571343

I have read three... this one looks a bit more promising as far as RvB tone goes, though I can't say Equestria's mysterious immediate mastery of technology (and convenient existence of magic AIs) sits right with me, but there probably aren't very many plausible ways to do whatever the author is doing with Tex and Gamma.

3571765

Donut is already 100% brony, he just doesn't realize it yet.

Unfortunately, he'd be the kind of brony that would attract negative press coverage of the fandom, I'm sure.

3570748

Pretty sure Georgia's fate was at least partly documented in a DVD bonus scene (impacts on a space station window due to jetpack problems).

3571634

Writing is better than not writing gogogo.

3571003

I thought they were both the same color? Pretty sure at one point in Season 11 Tucker references that he has no idea what to call his armor color.

3569973

13000 is perfectly acceptable for a chapter update, based on the other stories I am subscribed to. I find lots of stores go up to 20k per chapter. I'm a quick reader though. Bite-size chapters are certainly fine too.

Okay, as someone who is actually studying for a computer science major; the way you are describing this code/machine is painful.

But I am willing to at least see where this goes.

I hope this won't end up like one of the stories I read, where theres surprise for a few moments, and then its just like yeah ponies big deal. I want it to be more somewhat alienated like it takes a long time for them to warm up to a magical talking horse. :twilightblush:

Two of my favorite things:
RvB... And MLP
So why don't we put the two together! Hooray! :derpytongue2:
Well, my favorite crossovers are obviously the Doctor Who and MLP ones, but you know... Halo is my favorite video game series... And RvB is my favorite fan thing to come out of Halo... So..

lol my god, really? red v blue x mlp? what the actual fuck :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

This is great! Not only that but their are actually two great RVB fanfics out their! Theirs this one, and the My Little Caboose series. I am proud to say that anybody that has a good understanding of the RVB universe and characters and took the time and compassion in it and managed to make a masterpiece deserves my attention. Fav'd! :twilightsmile:

3572001 Haha, can you tell I don't know anything about computers? :derpytongue2: All I know is that they trapped Gamma behind a firewall at the end of Season 5.

3571831 Hmm... I'm gonna blame autocorrect for the "real leased" thing. As for the bolded stuff with Omega, I felt that I needed a way to get across his creepy vibes and thought it would look kinda cool. Probably not one of my best ideas, but...

3571988 Wow that's a lot of words. Let's see...
- Yes, I suppose I could've done a better job with the opening dialogue, I just wasn't sure how I'd be able to ponify that scene any more without straying too far from the original dialogue
- Yes, I specifically used online translation for Lopez's lines because that's how they did it for the show.
- The title is a reference to the lyrics from the RvB theme ("Blood Gulch Blues" by Trocadero), which I felt greatly encapsulates the main themes of the show and this story.

3571634 The absolute last thing I want to do is discourage people with my work. If you have an idea for your own RvB crossover, for the love of Celestia DO IT!!

3572479

You rate as "CSI bad" in terms of how poorly you misrepresent computer data.

AKA Hollywood thinks the Internet is just a series of tubes.

3572541 Not everyone is a geek squad tactical response member, bro.

-Will

Oh dear lord, I hope you update this quickly!

I love how even in the MLP verse there are RvB jokes, like M.I. Also, this may be one of my favorite jokes:

She could only imagine how wise and noble they must be…

“ATTENTION TURD-BISCUITS! FRONT AND CENTER! DOUBLE-TIME!”

Can't wait to see more!
