It's opening night for Ink Well's musical and he's not sure what to make of all of the attention. Between the gifts and the pampering of the producer, the easygoing pegasus simply doesn't know how to handle all of the attention. But when a mysterious pony saves him from assassination, he finds space is far larger than he ever could have expected, and that time has a nasty way of playing tricks on you. This is a sequel to Newsworthy.

I LOVED Newsworthy. I hope this is every bit as good!

371452 Hope I can live up to your standard! Personally I have some horrible feeling I'm just shooting myself in the hoof going with a direct sequel, but that's never stopped me before!

This is good, like most of your other stories :twilightsmile:

371554 Well, what I've read so far is on par with Newsworthy, so I don't think you have to worry. :pinkiesmile:

I completely forgot it was about the Doctor 'till the end... :twilightoops:

Great story, though, and when the Doctor finally did appear, you captured his personality perfectly! I'm surprised you modeled him after the 9th one, though. Anyway, have a mustache. :moustache:

Excellent story, love the way it's turning out so far. 5 mustaches for you. :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache: Aside from that, are you planning to reincorporate Rose?

388892 Eventually, just hold on. Got another set piece or two before the story ends.

This is interesting, I'll give you that. I've never actually watched Doctor Who (unfortunately), so a lot of it made no sense. But I like it anyway. After all, what's life without a little mystery?

An upvote and a favourite for you!
Sincerely,

Decided to go with the shorter update. I'll be able to focus on finals, then get the next part out without as much stress potentially causing writer's block. Should hopefully workout.:yay:

Also, if you see any errors or have any comments, feel free to post them and I'll fix it in post. I went over it twice, but you always miss SOMETHING.:ajbemused:

I must say that while the whole Doctor focus was a little jarring, this chapter has convinced me that this is really just as good as newsworthy. Good luck with the writing, it is turning out great!

"as The Doctor ran his sonic over the solid metal."

Yeah.

The rest of the chapter was amazing, as I expected. There were probably more mistakes (not an insult, just an assumption), but I was too immersed in the story to notice.

Still barely understand The Doctor, though. Good news! I have now watched a grand total of 1 Doctor Who episode, which is to say, the very very first one. Good show, though The Doctor's accent is bloody impenetrable.

Good work, keep it up, etc.

Here we have the next update, 28 pages of ridiculousness culminating in the end of the setting. It's a good thing I separated it from the last update, or you'd have never seen that one...

Fun Fact: the front legs of a horse are called its arms. This makes it a lot easier to refer to them.

Now that we're in a new setting, maybe I'll have less writer's block and update more often! :pinkiehappy: One can only hope.

Oh, and any comments about errors or any other feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

So THAT's why this chapter took so long. It's quite large. Positively immense, in fact.

Enjoyed it very much. Still have yet to watch any episodes of Doctor Who so some mannerisms and any references are lost on me, but hey, it's still a great read.

Battle of Ponyville? Is that a reference to an event in the show, or something you dreamed up in that noggin of yours. And from all the grumpyness and saying 'Fantastic' all the time, this is a representation of the 9th Doctor, am I right?

632110 The Event at the end of Newsworthy was mentioned at the beginning of this story to be The Battle of Ponyville.

Also, yes, he's the 9th more than any

First off, underlining the book's title should be done with , not with <u></u>. I did also notice various punctuation issues and sentence structure bugs. Theyre minor however, and I only noticed because I am in the middle of proofreading another fic. In a noticing mood, I guess.

Otherwise, awesome chapter!

632691 I KNEW I forgot to switch something between the DA and the FiMfiction version. Thank you.

I forgot how much I liked this story. And one other thing... The protagonist is Ink Well... My account name is Inkdrop... :rainbowderp:

644555 Ink Well isn't even the only Ink Well in existence, in Ponyville, at this time if other writers are to be believed. There's, like, eight of them in Equestria, all of them different.

It must make mail difficult.

So, funny story, we have now officially passed the last section I fully planned out. I think I write worse when I have it in mind, somehow, but whatever.

It's a weak chapter, I know. It's conversation, it's fast paced, and it's all one character, all things I'm horrible with, but things can only get more interesting from here, right?

Did anyone else stop when the actor got killed in the biginning to play this?

Dr whooves opening

744555 That maaaaay have been what I was going for with that. Glad it worked!

We near the end, and the true evil reveals itself.

A lot got said in here, and I don't feel it's very strong, but I'll leave it for you to decide. Tell me if there's anything particularly wrong with it, or feedback, or anything. Comments are appreciated!

You are a wordsmith. Even if a lot of the stuff I don't fully comprehend (it always gets that way with me and the space-time continuum. We can never agree on anything) it's well written, as I've come to expect from you.

Also, I'm usually very good at mentally picturing someone, but for the life of me whenever I try to picture you, I always end up with Fluttershy behind the keyboard.

766328 It's because I am actually Fluttershy in a doctor's outfit behind a keyboard.

The Master. You can't have and DW story without him. Nice twist.

766371 You can, but it would be difficult. And since there's a pony already labelled as him, might as well use it, right?

And the story just keeps getting more and more interesting.:pinkiehappy:

766440 One would hope. If it was getting more boring I'd be doing it wrong.

RAPID FIRE'S A CHANGELING?!? NEBULA'S A DOCTOR SONG EQUIVALENT?!? THE BATTLE OF PONYVILLE?!? MY HEAD CANNOT CONTAIN THE AWESOME!!! rthbnuhj bgdvfbhjnkj *head explodes* SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MUSTACHES!!! :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Despite everything pointing to the contrary, there is an epilogue following, so don't worry about this being the end.

That said, comments are appreciated, and tell me if anything looks... off. I did edit this at 4 AM.

Glorious. Simply glorious. Thank you for your hard work, Medicshy. We have all enjoyed the results. :heart:

So what you're saying here is that the Doctor shown here is a younger Doctor, prior to at least the new series, who will return to his home universe for that, and then apparently returns to Equestria later on?

That is what I call both "genius" and also "pure win", good writer.:moustache:

This little adventure has been so fun to read. I'm hoping there will be a sequel going into that whole Master and Derpy thing.

Is it weird that the thought of Equestria splitting into two factions makes me feel kinda sad? dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Twilight_future.png

820307 I'm glad you have.

820468 I'll lay all of my thoughts out for it after the epilogue is written, 'cus this actually has an interesting story.

820649 There will be a sequel, indeed, which will shed some insight... eventually.

And you shouldn't feel sad. It comes back together afterwards, and is even closer due to its turmoil. is that such a bad thing?

821576

Thinking if the future always makes me sad. Everything turns to dust :applecry:

822271 too much perspective makes everything bleak

And so we reach the end of the story... It's been a long run, but I'm glad you have enjoyed it.

I would like to thank my readers, especially those who commented! I would also like to thank Flutterknight on Deviant art for the cover image and Razorbeam here for motivating me with his consistent updates.

Thank you everyone, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

EDIT: Added author's notes. You can find them here: http://www.fimfiction.net/blog/43846

Will there be a sequel?

844304 I'm not even going to be cryptic about this one. Yes, there will, and it may even be the next story I work on, but I think I might do a side project before that. I'm not sure yet.

This will be the next Epic Trilogy! Huzzah!

7-4

... Holy crap I just read both of the stories in this series in the last six hours.

7-4

846835 I REGRET NOTHING!

Besides, you know, having to read it on a phone.
