Suri Polomare isn't just content stealing ideas for dresses. Watch as she steals famous ideas throughout history and claims credit for them, okay.

Please get featured. I want to see a new character tag.

Hey mods, you think you could give her her own tag? Okay.

Good luck. It took darf asking for an anthro tag to get THAT.

And he's done vanished from the site.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Don't ask for tags, they get added once a character has had enough fics to really justify one. It can take a while (Sparkler and Cloudkicker only recently got them) or be quick (Maneiac and the Power Ponies were added within a week or so of their episodes) or it may never happen (Blossomforth, Davenport, various other minor ponies who are canon but have only 1-2 fics if any)

3735533 Alright, I won't ask for a tag. :derpytongue2:

Wut, more likes than views

Funny little story. The puns are wild but fitting. Nice to see Rarity get the last laugh.

I chuckled at the bit where she stole the printing press. Was wondering where she'd get Bibles to print before she went back and tried to one-up the pony version of God.

3735533 wait we have power pony tags now? O_O

“Oh, sorry dear,” said Rarity, turning back. “I’m an atheist.”

:duck:
I laughed, I died, I laughed some more.
It is a most fitting punchline.

Hmm, now that I think about it, Carts, it is very suspicious that one person alone just happened to come up with as many brilliant fan fictions as you, wouldn't you say? :duck:

Hey Carts, Kingtiger666. We live on the same planet, remember me? Yeah, do you think you could unpublish your five most popular stories and hand them over to me? I need a few extra followers so my next story is a big hit, okay?

Suri Polomare wrote this fic and you're just copying her, okay?

I was going to make a witty comment on this story, but Suri Polomare wrote it better than me.:rainbowlaugh:

OH GOD SHE'S THE NEW HIPSTER!:rainbowderp:

3736084 You caught me. I'm a time travelling author who goes back in time and takes credit for fics that others wrote. Soon, I will have written Fallout: Equestria, My Little Dashie, and Past Sins.

3736378 I KNEW it! I hope you realize what I'm gonna have to do if you take Cassandra.

3736390 Something to send a message, like break your "axles"

Featherson fumed. He couldn’t believe he had been duped.

Nikola Tailsla sauntered up behind him. "Now you know how it feels," he sneered.

I'm a believer and I still feel comfortable saying the following in regards to this fic:
Rarity is best pony. :rainbowlaugh:

3736414 seconded

Same thing with apple and xerox

“Oh, sorry dear,” said Rarity, turning back. “I’m an atheist.”

You can claim anything you want, but unless you can prove it people won't hesitate to call your bullshit. And apparently neither will ponies.
3736378
Oh, well be warned, two of those suck in my opinion, an I'm not telling you which so you can change my mind and keep me and others from pointing out how.

I can just see it now. The opening credits roll by, the MLP theme is ending, and

Developed for television by

Suri Polomare

I'm reading this in the break room at my job and my coworkers are wondering why I'm giggling like an idiot.

Awesome job, okay?

I knew there was a reason Rarity was best pony.

Rarity is an atheist.

New headcanon acquired.

I'm just going to upvote and favorite this, okay?

“Oh, sorry dear,” said Rarity, turning back. “I’m an atheist.”

I died.

I thought Rarity was jewish... :pinkiehappy:

“Oh, sorry dear,” said Rarity, turning back. “I’m an atheist.”

Friggin' hell, Carts.

Upvoted and faved.

And that's how Equestria was made! :pinkiehappy:

You know, the irony is that Thomas Jefferson, in real life, DID steal the light bulb idea from another person. He did exactly what Suri did!

the two first ponies: Apple and Eve

My reaction to this, I'm not sure how to describe it. In the pony creation myth for this story, the male was named after a (sometimes)red fruit like the fruit of knowledge and his last name is the same as the family name for a huge equestrian family.

3739507 He is the father of all earth ponies, including the apples. :ajsmug:

3739514
Well, i guess that word-of-gods that lineage head-cannon. Though, as the first male pony, wouldn't he be the father of every pony?

It's just, the parallels suggest that it is based off of the Christian creation story which would mean that eve was the one who was supposed to mess with the red fruit, not Apple. It would also mean that applejack would be some sort of "chosen Apple" which would link directly to scripture which would make her simultaneously holy and tarnished and i don't know how to feel about that. Also there is just something wrong about suggesting ponies have original sin in the first place, though i can't really tell myself they are perfect.

It's not even any of this weird stuff that got me to react. It's how you managed to get this huge reaction out of me with nothing but the name of a pony.

3739562 I just did it as a clever pun, to be honest. I didn't really overthink it myself :derpytongue2:

I just want to say that the idea of 'stealing' an invention from Edison is deliciously ironic. :pinkiecrazy:

God, that was amazing. Many laughs were had, friend. Good job.

Anywho, near the end I saw this,

“Oh, hello Suri,” Rarity turned around and responded, and then returned to her sowing.

Methinks you mean "sewing". "Sowing" is like planting a seed, "sewing" is the act of stitching, repairing fabrics and whatnot.

3740288 Thanks for pointing that out!

3740351
No problem. :twilightsmile:

I thought Celestia was God.
I like your headcanon better.

CDF

This story sure pooped up quickly. Great work; many giggles were had.

3739331
Thomas Edison, you mean. He is in many ways the true "father of electricity", but it's also true that he claimed responsibility for many of Nikola Tesla's inventions. He was kind of a dick.

3742491

The guy who ran electric currents through living dogs to try and discredit Nikolai's research is a bit of a 'dick' you say? :trixieshiftleft:

This is slightly amusing, if anything. Then again, this is what I get from reading "comedies" with less than 4k words.

Featherson fumed. He couldn’t believe he had been duped.

This. Is. IRONY!!!

I thought I knew where this story was going until that final glorious zag. Well done.

I'm a Christian and that makes this even more hilarious. BTW I thought PonyGod would be Lauren Faust....

Congratulations! Your story has officially been rated a Sapphire by the Gem Hunters.

That was definitely fun to read. Creative in it's own right, and the ending seemed like the setup for the best way to end it. No noticeable spelling and grammar errors. Story wise, though, it was on the simpler side, not saying it is a bad thing. Different scenarios playing out exactly the same way, but with different inventions. Nice job still for the creative names and such.

3735570 Yup, Powerponies and Mane-iac have their own tags.
