Einhander


Just an old school hybrid spaceship/pony writing some stories.

This story is a sequel to Faster


Fluttershy had the best, most loyal pony in the world as her fiancee. But after the events of Faster, Rainbow Dash is gone. Now, weeks after the funeral, she still blames herself and own weakness for Dash's death. She also has questions. Who is this bigger, stronger pony glaring at her in the mirror? What hasn't she been told about Dash's death? When did this giant hole appear in the side of her bedroom wall? Why is she suddenly so quick to anger? And how will she handle the fact that the reports of Dash's death have been slightly exaggerated?

The kindest, gentlest, most soft-spoken pony in Ponyville is about to become the strongest pony in all of Equestria.

What happens when she gets mad?

Sequel to Faster. Featured 2/7-2/9. Added to Twilight's Library 2/7.

Note: I have left enough clues for you to piece together what happened without having to read Faster, but really, you should read Faster before reading this. It's a Nolan Sequel, not a Burton Sequel. (In terms of a continuity, I make no promises as to quality)

Additional Note: Because Knighty is a tyrant, I can't tag everyone on the poster, because my poster has six characters. But rest assured, I didn't work this hard on a sequel to Faster without eventually getting around to the fate of Dash.

She shook her head. "I was following an intruder got inside your dream..."

Reads kinda awkward to me. Still a fine start.

Yes!:pinkiehappy: I been waiting for this!

Celestia turned her head slightly, looking at her sister out of the corner of her eye. β€œWe’re too late, Luna.”

β€œToo late?” Luna asked.

Celestia extended her hoof and watched the first few flakes land on her hoof. As they began to melt, she sighed.
β€œIt’s already begun.”

That is one hell of a chapter closer.

3910830 DAMMIT YOU SAID IT FIRST

But YES I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS :pinkiehappy:

YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES!!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH EINHANDER!!!

SO MUCH HAPPINESS!!!

It arrives! Are we getting five+ books in this series?

"Why Fluttershy, what a nasty little blow!" He grinned. "I didn't know you had it in you."

"Why Fluttershy." Discord lifted his head and rubbed his face. His voice was calm, but he wasn't smiling. He looked at her outstretched hoof. "I didn't know you had it in you."

Used the same phrase twice here. Intentional? I think so, because in one he's smiling, in the other not smiling. If it's not deliberate then consider re-phrasing one of them.

Can't wait to see where the rest of this goes!

3911310 intentional. The will to slap vs the power to smash.

I am now excited to read what happens.

Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesitishereeeeeeee!:pinkiehappy:
And just wow. This escalated quickly.
I can't wait for Fluttershy to meet Bolt. Beause it just has to happen!:rainbowkiss:

He also some lines about being afraid of bears, but my pre-reader wisely had me take them out.

But bears are the number one threat to Equestria.

3911455 Thx u for my early b-day present! Remember me? The b-day person? :rainbowhuh:
T-H-A-N-K -Y-O-U! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Aw hell.

I missed the release.

Still, strong start to this epic! That is one hell of a dream!

~Skeeter The Lurker

3911837 you're a working man now, son!

Shit's getting tense...

Twilight looks to be in a panic and Discord's concerned.

And if Discord's concerned... You know things are bad.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Wow. Such a good start. Can't wait to read more.

I need not read any more for this next bit.

Seeing as it's damn good so far... And plus Faster is in the Library as well...

I approve this for Twilight's Library!

~Skeeter The Lurker

YEAAAAH! :pinkiegasp: FINALLY!!! :yay: but seriously, that's what Rainbow looks like? I was picturing something WAY more epic, similar to your avatar. Oh well. :pinkiesad2:

3911848
If it is then give him the bloody ribbon xD

3911838

Yeah, and it'll take some getting used to, too...

3912137

Next chapter/comment. I promise.

~Skeeter The Lurker

3912019 Rainbow didn't turn into a robot.:moustache: It was just a liquid like metal plating.

Just when my feels we're recovering from faster....this comes out to tear them up again ... I LOVE IT:pinkiecrazy:

3912532 There would have to be some fancy manipulation of how they fit into the story line so they would be in the correct order.

Two prequels?

Wait just a goddamn second...Faster...Stronger...OH!

3912381 to quote: "She blinked assent and slowly came awake, piece by piece. Every part of her body began responding individually, and as one. And every part of her metal, interlocking and connecting, humming with magical energy. Every part had purpose. She had total control. She understood their design and function of every part of her, save her 'mane', which she realized was thousands of tiny metal strands molded into sharp angles. It momentarily irked her, but she let it pass, deciding that it was satisfying an unknown variable she classified as 'cool.'"

I imagined her looking like a robot in this scene

Wow, I am thoroughly enjoying this.

After reading Faster, and then stumbling into it with a heavy heart for Stronger, I cannot believe that I have reached the current end! :unsuresweetie:
I really would like to read more and congratulate you on the success this story, and it's prequel, have become!

Oh I'm starting to love this story

OH MY GOD!! Yes!! I've been waiting for this!! I'm starting now! :pinkiehappy:

That was an interesting look at the sisters' encounter with the orb, or at least at Celestia's recollection of it.

"Gentlecolts, we can rebuild her. We have the technology. We have the capability to build Equestria's first bionic pony. Rainbow Dash will be that pony. Better than she was before. Better, stronger, faster."

Just something I though of when I read the title for Faster and Stronger.....anyways time to read them.

Very cool start. Ominous and intriguing, with such atmosphere! This feels like the beginnng of something truly awesome.

Not Fluttershy too. You monster! :raritydespair:

Er I mean, good story. :twilightsheepish:

I think? :unsuresweetie:

"The Faster-verse" is the best name for a continuity ever.:rainbowdetermined2:

My two favorite ponies. Did it have to be my two favorite ponies? :fluttercry:

Faster was... I don't even know. To be honest, shipping offends me greatly. But there's just something perverse about these stories that makes me want to know what happens next... A sensation I don't have words to explain.

Now Fluttershy is inevitably going to lose herself to his designs, and I'm going to have to watch as her life gets torn even further apart until she is no more the sweet and tender filly from the show, the pony I have come to love... Just like Dash before her was lost utterly, I don't know how she will fare. I want her to win, but... the wish has been made. It's only a matter of time. :applejackunsure:

If only everything could be right again. :ajsleepy:

When Discord of all people is worried, you know that things are going to get very bad.

And something tells me that there isn't much remaining of the timberwolves.

My theory is that either Rainbow saves Scootaloo, but it all happened so fast Scoortaloo didn't recognize Rainbow, or the buff fluttershy saved her

The next in the series: Harder, and Better
- damn, someone made that joke already

Indeed, this is marvelously compelling, despite knowing it's going to be a tragedy

Let the sky fall. Clever

3915917 hardly, yourself asked for this in an diffrent way. We all demanded a story involving poor flutters after what happens in the previous story. That is the way of human thinking

OH. MY. GOD. IT'S FINALLY HERE YESSSSSSSSS :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::rainbowkiss:

3913044 Yeah its a little misleading with that description. But at almost every other time its described, it seems like its oozing over her body every time she goes fast.

3918330 Still. I can't stop picturing her like that. And frankly, I don't want too :P

3918062

No, no I'm afraid I haven't left any comments requesting this fic to continue, nor to involve Fluttershy. :trixieshiftright:

also I am a ferret. get your species right next time

3918437 but you had in your mind

3918446

You are now breathing manually.
