Flint Sparks

Who let the dogs out?


Maud isn't like other earth ponies. She's special, like her sister.

She can hear a voice, a voice from another world. At first it torments her, then comforts her, then befriends her. Naturally, Maud does the rational thing: she falls in love.

But will it last?

...I am so confused right now. What the hell did you do to my emotions, Flinty?! :raritydespair:

Well, that was something different.

I wonder if narrators have a Heaven they go to when they reach The End.

I read this while sniffing cocaine.:heart:Thanks for that Flint.

This was the first religious experience I've ever had.

That's heartbreaking! Why............wh......what possessed you to torture Maud in such a way!
You monster! You........you........you glorious bastard! D'''''':

PS. Write more!

This was beautiful, actually almost brought a tear to my eye. :fluttershysad:

It started on a dark and stormy night. Why? Because a lot of stories start that way. Don't call it cliche, it just happens. Stories start on bright and sunny days, or nights where the ocean is calm and smells like spilled table salt and vinegar. Stories have to start somewhere, and you probably read it before. Stop being such a critic! Though, I do admit, some are more exciting than others. Like stories that start on the day of the apocalypse, now that's exciting!

Thank you so much for this, expecially the underlined parts.

That... was certainly a great take on a concept not many have even ventured upon. Driving feelings down towards your brain's epicentre to give you a "Romeo & Juliet" like vibe, with its forbidden love and inevitable end, convincing yourself to believe that their love is real. Which it is, in it's own weird yet alluring way.

Bravo, good sir. And might I dribble upon the idea of a sequel?

Um... Ow my feels.

Oh wow! This was great to read! And it was nice to get a break from the normal stuff you find on here, so thats another point you get for originality.

It really makes me want to go watch Stranger than Fiction again haha.

Good job!

Thumbs up and faved!

This is the most hilarious thing i have read in millennia.

I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. You came around and just punched my feels in the face! I feel betrayed! (kinda) :rainbowwild:

I need a beer after reading this, why you do this to maud, why, I feel like I just read some that has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it man, please write more you glorious bastard

This story was making me smile and laugh though out the whole thing! :pinkiehappy:
Then the end... it broke my heart. :raritydespair:

4169134 Unfortunately, all stories must come to an end... :fluttershysad:

Oh, hey, this was a nice story. *pause, sudden realization.* Oh. My. GOD.:pinkiegasp: :fluttershbad:

4169513 Please tell me you got it, please tell me you got it... :pinkiehappy:

4169520 I did. You magnificent bastard, you.

Continue it! Continue it no! YOU CRUEL HEARTLESS BEING!
Poor Maud :fluttercry:


Jesus, how hard was that to write?

Combining dialogue and narration seamlessly

Oh, I used the stream of consciousness writing technique. It wasn't too hard to slip into that persona, or at least for this one instance.

Why would it be appropriate for this story? Ask 4169513

Rereading it again and goddammit I just realised something.:facehoof:

I'm 12 so I wasn't even alive when myspace was a thing.

This brought up emotions I didn't knew I had.
Well done.


Still gonna reread it though. You can never expect what this fandom can do. Next thing you know, a fan-made sequel would be made.

Nudge *hint**hint*

Great, I don't know if I actually got what you were implying with the author note or not. It's frustrating. :applejackunsure:

The story was great, I love how the narrator is an actual being(well voice) in the story. It was heartbreaking to see Maud so happy and then...

4171464 If you're curious, PM me and I'll let you know. :moustache:


But, seriously, I liked the story.

I think I got what your trying to say... but i'm not to sure I'm right, I hope i'm not.

Yo if it's what i'm thinking it is. That's some real deep stuff going on in that story......

The narrator reminds me of the narrator from the anime Sgt. Frog (or Keroro Gunso as its called in Japan). The way the narrators conflict with the "alive" characters is really good!


Gotta agree, especially when they all did a bow at the New Years and he was just a figure clad in black clothes and a cloth covering his face, also joining the bow.


Actually, it was an April Fool's joke. So it probably won't get a sequel and any super deep stuff going on. But still, people can dream.

(Inside: :fluttercry:)

4172170 wow.....it was a good one. Had me sitting there and questioning my moral values. props


And it took an April Fools fic for us to look at our moral values:rainbowlaugh:

4169812 Pfft, whatever do you mean, darling?

4172393 ..... Did I just get trolled?:twilightoops:

Noooooo! Narrator, Why did you have to be... be... be so unreliable!:raritydespair:

I have just witnessed the romance equivalent of Stanley Parable.... :rainbowderp:

*Slow Clap*
*Golfer's clap*
*Lighting the New Year's fireworks early*

Oh god this was beautiful, rarely have I seen stories where the character's are aware of the narrators, let alone fall in love with one :pinkiehappy:

You sir deserve five mustaches out of five :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

At first I was like "tragedy? meh, no way this story can deliver" but then I read it and I was like :pinkiegasp:

Insert your favourite slow clap gif.
