Bucking Nonsense

A Little Nonsense Now And Then Is Relished By The Wisest Men.


An unexpected encounter with a stallion helps Fluttershy feel better about a personal problem... And then hilarity ensues.

There is now an Interquel in progress, taking place between chapters 3 and 4. And there is a sequel planned.

Chapters (5)

Your story is good as is; it works either on its own as a short story or as the start for something longer.

This isn't actually the first story I wrote, but I keep trying to make a longer one, then losing my train of thought partway through, then either giving it up or just putting it in storage until I can recapture the thread... which I usually can't :twilightoops: . This time, I thought I'd try writing something that could work with one chapter, or could be expanded upon at great length. But I'm glad it's already getting faves, comments, and likes within fifteen minutes of hitting the site :rainbowlaugh: .

...And I now have a follower!

Continue it pleaaaase it's so good :)

Short and sweet! I like it. Youve earned a follow!

Okay, because it was requested, I am working on a second chapter now. I may have it up later tonight, or it may wait for a week. I don't know yet, we'll see.

This... this is adorable. I demand MOAR NOW! ... I-If that's okay with you...

But seriously, this is great. You deserve all of my like, favorite, and follow. I eagerly await the next chapter! :raritywink:

Okay, I just finished writing chapter two, and am now proof-reading it. It''s a slight change of pace from chapter one, since it's from the, ah, stallion's perspective, not Fluttershy's, but I hope you'll like it. I certainly enjoyed writing it.

Chapter Two UP! And no, I won't be doing chapter three today. Two chapters in one weekend is my limit. I might get another one up during the week, but for now, I'm just gonna bask in the glow of the fact that my first story actually made the popular stories list within hours of being posted. I couldn't have done it without you all! I love you guys as much as a random person on the internet can love other random people on the internet!

Well, this random person on the internet will favorite this story, written by a random person on the internet (You), and follow the writer of this random story on the internet (Still you, you dolt).

This is brilliant. Keep it up.

Not bad, though I really can't see super high speed digging working, eh who cares. It's funny that Twilight was expecting him, it makes sense though. I am curious as to what will happen next.

Regarding High Speed Digging: Cartoon physics. That is all.
In regards to Twilight waiting for him: yeah, I got a kick out of that, myself. I mean, I had considered having it be a surprise for her, but I thought to myself, "well, Twilight's pretty smart, so if she knew there was a changeling about to make a quick escape from a city that was surrounded on all sides by icy wasteland, with the only non-arctic method of escape being the train, well... :rainbowlaugh:

This is fantastic. Keep it up!

Okay, I lied, in the most delicious way possible. Here's a third chapter, for your consumption. Over 3000 words in one day. Enjoy your magnificent feast! :pinkiehappy:

That's always fun. :pinkiehappy:

(I prefer "everyling", myself, instead of "everybuggy".)

Oh my... Flutters has a bit of a crush methinks. I can see these two eventually getting into a biting fetish.:raritywink:

bro, i give it:

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::twistnerd: out of :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Also, I love your writing style! It's smooth and easy to read, while still being quite descriptive.

Now, to see where you go with this, but the start is entertaining.

Hee hee! "Everybuggy"! I've been using the more popular "Everyling" (and variations), but maybe in a cute oneshot (if I ever write such a thing) I'll have to steal that!

The story's just as cute, and even original, I'd bet, with the whole "Flutterbat gets mistaken for a Changeling by a Changeling that's attracted to her" cuteness.

Just... CUTE! :yay:

3703473 Every-ling= More realistic. Every-buggy= More hilarious.

Money can't buy me love I see what you did there

Double space, please!

Otherwise, great job. You just earned a favorite. :twilightsmile:

3705876 I don't mind when people don't double space. I mean, aren't most books NOT double spaced right? :twilightsheepish: That's just my opinion, personally. :3

Well, this is cute. I'll be watching.

And chapter four, UP! And yes, this will be the last chapter... of this story. I may do a sequel later. I had a lot of fun with this story, to be honest with you, and I had originally planned on having the "hearing" take a couple of chapters, but I really couldn't think of a way to do it without losing the light-hearted and overall adorable feeling of the overall story. Still, I think it went pretty well, all things considered.


I hate how torn this story makes me. I have a very particular set of rules for when/if I comment. Two of them being:
DO Comment If:
5 Chapters Minimum.

Special Exceptions:
Must be outstanding.
Do I need to point out how this story destroyed my ruleset?

That said, I hope to see more from you.

Looks like Wonderboldts Training left a bit of an impression on Dash

Of course! If you recall, the pegasai have a long-standing military tradition that literally predates Equestria. I'm certain their DNA would stand up and salute if you put it in a petri dish and barked an order at it.

Your praise makes me feel good inside. No, seriously, I mean it. I needed that compliment right there.

Ah, and I added an author's comment in chapter 2, regarding Mole Crickets. I did include a pic of one, for those of you who have never seen one. Be warned, they make changelings look handsome in comparison.

How is it that nobody else has come up with "everybuggy" before now!? I've been wasting my life with "everyling" and "someling" and such, instead of that brilliance! :raritydespair:

I really like it. I feel sad that I won't be seeing more of the character, but I understand if you don't want to spin it off beyond this.

Everybuggy? Really? That's in the story?

...Pure genius. My nonexistent hat off to you, good sir.

More of Mole Cricket, please! I absolutely adore this character and like the idea of him being a changeling in pony society. Also because I'm a hopeless romantic and want more FlutterMole/CricketShy shipping :twilightblush:.

I eagerly await your next story be it a sequel or not :raritywink: ... Though, I hope it's a sequel :raritystarry:.

Wow, at first I was like "Dafuq does KSP have to do with this?". Then I read the ship name.

I wholeheartedly approve this story.

Nothing to stop you doing one-shots including Cmdr Mole Cricket. They could be focused on certain events, and submitted as though friendship reports perhaps.

Well, you know, I never really considered that it could be anything except "everybuggy". I mean, it flows off the tongue much more smoothly than "everyling". I always figured that every species used something like that: Griffons probably use something like "everybirdy" when in the company of griffons, and minotaurs probably use something like "everybully". It should always sound at least a little like "everybody", right?

I am considering a sequel, one about the royal meeting mentioned in the story. We'll see how it turns out.

Ha! this was a great story! I hope you do make a sequel!

"Everybuggy"! That is brilliant! :pinkiehappy:
I almost wish I were writing a story involving changelings just so I could use that word! :derpytongue2:

Wait, it's over? Dang, that was short, but in a way, just the right size. A sequel would be nice, though.

Well, it's going to be more of an interquel, I guess: it'll be the story of the, ah, interview Mole Cricket has with Celestia and the other princesses. It'll give me a chance to flesh out Mole's character. Afterwards, I might even write up a prequel.

Okay folks, I have posted the first chapter of the Interquel. Once it's approved, feel free to read it. I hope you'll all enjoy it.
