Learn to love the writing, of telling a story that you want told, and not the recognition that comes with it. When skill and passion atrophy, write for yourself, and in time, you'll inspire others.


A long, long time ago, there was a knight who set out on a noble quest to save a fair maiden and, if possible, slay the dragon keeping her captive.

Only... things don't always go as planned.

Many thanks to the incredibly talented hattonslayden for letting me use this picture for the cover art. Check out his work some time!

Update: featured? Oh my... I feel all tingly inside...

That cover alone makes me want to read. God I love hatton's work.

This was brilliant. At first, I was kinda confused as to where you were going with it, then the last part made me laugh. Not a bad way to twist the original into something entertaining, plus... this line.

“Oh, come now Applebloom, you must never ask a lady her age,” Discord said with a smile.

Not sure if want...

Either way, loved it. :rainbowlaugh:

I like it! :pinkiehappy:


carved with strange runes frm another time, from another age.

Knight saving the Dragoness from an unruly and very ungrateful princess/lady...?
Dragoness, every time! :moustache:

4042734 Sorry about that: I added in some details and my college's computers don't come with online spell-check, unlike my laptop.


Okay, I'll admit this is an entertaining tale, but it's a pony story only by the slimmest of margins.

4042816 True. But nevertheless I still enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope to see the sequel story. :ajsmug:

I will await part two in a week.

dat dragon butt

Hmm. Well, if we're going based on the various parts that he has, then unless one his mother's parents were hybrids as well, I'd guess that his other grandparents were a gryphon and a manticore.


Interesting story, but I don't think tacking a bit about Discord on the end should really qualify it as a FiM fic. The mods think otherwise, though...

this story was great!
Now onward my steed, to free poor dragonesses from terrible princesses!

wonder if the dragon is still alive in the present time, have her show up and embarrass Discord with stories of his childhood

4043735 Sweet Sisters, all of my yes.:raritystarry:

That was pretty good, and I would love to hear the other 2 story's

dam no sex dude secuwal and heat of the dragon ASAP

Had that pic in my folder for a while. It's great to finally see a well-written story to go along with it.

4044482 make a second story about how the knight and dragon got it on

4044742 Yeah, I'm pretty sure he knew that you meant that. But I'm guessing that he just couldn't comprehend the why.

4044852 want to know why look and that bloody cover pic and you see why also i have a scale fedish

Awesome story!

You should do a sequel (of sorts) that follows the knight and the dragoness as they start to form a friendship and later on, a romantical relationship (not talking about sex here. That would be cool, but not everyone's into that type of stuff).

Just a suggestion as I think quite a few people would like that. But hell, it's your story dude. Anyway, I loved this. You earned a like and a favourite. Great job! :twilightsmile:

seems legit

We'd better see that hydra and volcano some day!

*shakes fist in a barely threatening manner*

I am so trying to remember where I first saw the idea, The Dragon And the George? but this is especially delightfully twisted with the gift of the maiden to the squire, and then with the story in a story.

Also, you really avoided It was all a Dream so chocolaty. :pinkiegasp:

Dates, Marriages, honeymoons and a life in the day would be sooo much fun. :rainbowkiss:

4045694 4045136 4045033 Based on this story's surprisingly supportive and/or positive reception, I now am currently planning out a story for these two. My only stipulation is that it may take some time to not only craft, but to get started on. I have nearly 30 other projects I'd at least like to start, not to mention the 3 "big" projects I'm already working on, and I would like to finish at least one of those.

Now I really want to hear what happens... it may be next week for Cheerilee's Class... but the completed tag reminds me that it will never come...

Xenophilia is best philia:rainbowkiss:


Was confusing toward the end but, :rainbowlaugh: all the same

That's fine. Take your time. We don't expect you to drop all of your other projects just to focus on this.

Trust me. Another story on this will be well worth the wait. And thank you for planning another story for this out. It'll be awesome, just like this one.

Danka for listening to your readers. :twilightsmile:

This story... You bastard. Now I have to Fav.:ajbemused: . . :derpytongue2:

The truth of Discord: The result of an inhuman experiment in magical chimerism in the evil land of the International Chinese Communist Conspiracy!

See all you need to be prepared to defend against these evil fiends here:


Well that was amusing.

King Guy:No no no, I said to "SLAY" the dragon not...:facehoof: Oh Geez

Sorry I couldn't resist! Nice story:twilightsheepish:

Definitely not what I expected for the ending, even after reading a couple comments first. Loved it, though. :rainbowlaugh:

*cough*that's putting it mildly*cough*

Dude, you are so good at this, this was so creative and fun to read, i loved it. :heart: Im faving this :trixieshiftleft:

Huzzah, I got the 200th like. (I feel so special)

It was quite the enjoyable spin on that old cliche. Can't say I wouldn't do the same thing if I was in his armored boots.

I'm stealing this for my next Pathfinder game.

Can you set it up online? I would join that, no one here in Roswell to play with.

I've had this as the basis for part of the world in my next pathfinder game for like a year. This was much better than mine.

4044410 English, motherbucker, do you speak type it?

I have nearly 30 other projects I'd at least like to start, not to mention the 3 "big" projects I'm already working on, and I would like to finish at least one of those.

Boy, do I know that feeling.

he had trained to become a knight of land

I think you accidentally a word here.

he really didn’t to linger,

And now you accidentally another one.

he wasn't slightly attracted to her or anything, no sir

And judging from this river, his father's lands must be in Egypt.

4047797 The first one was referring to a landed knight, a man in medieval times who held property and whatnot while also being in the retinue of the king. The second one... yeah, my bad. :facehoof:

As for the third one, I'm not entirely sure what that means.

Okay, this was good in the half with the knight and the dragon, but the connection to MLP feels completely tacked-on.
