CvBrony here, you can call me Cv ("cee vee"). My wife poked me hard enough to try the show, and a bit later, here I am. Now with Patreon!


A collection of silly, bite-sized skits where the characters crush the fourth wall into dust to talk about the world of Rites of Ascension, all while poking fun at each other. Learn about the ascension process, cored weaponry, and more!

This is a NON-CANON Rites EU "story." (The characters break the fourth wall completely, so of course it has to be non-canon.) Art by my lovely and amazingly talented wife, Violet Squiggles! You do have to have read Rites of Ascension to really understand this one. You're going to be seriously lost if you start here. That being said, you do not need to read this story to understand what's going on in Rites. This is to add to something already whole (and maybe get a few laughs), not make up for shortcomings elsewhere. Also, I thought it would be fun.

Also, as this is non-canon to Rites, I can go back and change things if I like. Generally, this will only happen if something hasn't been explained in the canon stories yet and has to change for them. Hopefully I won't ever actually have go do that, but if I do, I'll point it out in the chapter.

Very good work CV!

lessee, sensing a pattern with how these end. Twi shoving the person out the door. so far no substantial information that hasn't already really been covered int eh story, but some fleshing out of the alicorn stuff. "Dominated" is an interesting way to put reaching the summits, but implies a level of control over them that I'm not too sure exists in your universe given the sporadic anture of them? Anyway, those are my initial thoughts

Well, that is the pattern so far. There will be more.

Good work and this is awesome, more to help explain the world you've built (while embarrassing Twilight by everyone) and more to look forward to (and drop whatever I was doing) as is the case whenever something of this verse updates.

Honestly surprised that this was approved as fast as it was! I expected it at the earliest tomorrow morning. Anyway; great to see it up! Keep up the great work, and I'm glad your internet is cooperating again, Cv!

"horn growth, body growth, wings and horn"

lol, you need a comma after wings and to change the second horn into mane.


I swear I caught that mistake earlier and fixed it. How'd it get back in?

Oh well. Fixed. Thanks!

Finally! I've been waiting forever!:pinkiehappy::twilightsmile:

what is this 4th wall you speak of all i see is a pile of rubble

Twilight! Twilight! I have a question. You've talked about Unicorns becoming Alicorns, but what about other ponies? Can Earth and Pegasus ponies become Alicorns too? *Is shoved out of door*

they are a separate subspecies from we ponies

I may be wrong but shouldn't that 'we' become 'us'? It makes more sense in the context. And I would add a coma before ponies, but that's probably because I suck at comas...:twilightblush:

That nitpicking aside, it's a fun read! Onwards to next chapter!:twilightsmile:

Did Shining Armor just have a stroke? :twilightoops:

Huzzah *Luna emote that needs to exists*
Yay questions being answered : D
(Also great job on the art, Violet)

3647142 That's... Actually a really interesting question.. Hmm. *Runs to skype*

I said the same thing there, but in the end it was decided that 'we' works there as well.

Pony spirituality. That gets my vote. I'm very interested in seeing where you take this.

Toss up for me between Pony Genetics and Magic Items, have to go with Pony Genetics though.

This is a NON-CANON Rites EU "story."

And by Non-Canon I take it you mean the ponies don't actually break the fourth wall or have any knowledge of these events but that the information they are presenting is in fact Canon info?:trixieshiftright:

Pony spirituality
:pinkiecrazy:Lets meet the creator.
And the decreator
on second thought, just the creator is fine

I'll also go with spirituality.

==Higher Power==!

Admittedly, I'm cheating cuz I know more about the other thing I'd have voted for(:yay:) but this honestly interests me.

The information presented IS canon to the story. But none of this ever happens. So events =/= canon, while info = canon


With the caveat that any info not presented directly in the canon stories yet may eventually change in the canon stories.


Really diggin' the info on the world you're building.

Seeing as you just did pony genetics, why not stay on the topic? My vote: pony genetics

I vote for wings. Given how much you've developed this topic, I'm interested to see what you do with an even broader one.

I'll take Pony Spirituality for $100, Alex.

might as well finish the wings cat:pinkiehappy:

I would like to read more about Pony spirituality.

Genetics. (I'm interested in Tribe Hybrids and Technology Level, but of course I know the latter won't be covered until Culture's chosen twice. I might vote Culture next time whether Genetics wins or not.)

I'm voting for Magic Items, though it looks like Higher Power is going to win.

3697951 Cool, that's what I thought from the title and the short description but I wanted to clarify after reading that line.:moustache:

==Culture==, most definitely.

Also, what do you thing about this? You post the chapter, then make comments only stating one topic each. We upvote the one we want covered. The one with the most upvotes is the chosen one. In the event of a draw... you choose the one you feel like writing. Or toss a coin, that works as well.

It does mean you will have at the very least seven comments in a row but I suppose it beats counting all the comments. Plus, I suspect there is quite significant amount of readers who will not vote if they have to write something, but upvoting one comment is not a hassle to them. We are all lazy like that.

==Magic Items==
As I've expressed before, I really want to know about cored weapons. I know that that's the second one... dl.dropbox.com/u/21167245/FiMFiction/Emoticons/misc_Spit_sad.png but, I can hope!

I really want to see pony genetics continued, but I think I'm going to have to vote for ==Magic Items==

It's both most informative about something in the story we need to know (cored weapons, how do they work and why are they so important?) and also magic items are objects of coolness and interest.

Higher power. Let's see where this rabbit hole takes us.

First thought is for Culture, but Magic Items gets a close second
