Purple Dalek


Evildoers beware! Ponyville's latest masked vigilante is here. She's small, she's blue, she can inexplicably use a bow and arrow despite being an earth pony. She's the Masked Arrow!

Written mostly because Archer is an awesome background pony who needs more love and deserves her own tag.

I love what you did with this.

Very creative and original despite my he references to pop culture.

Look forward to reading more.:pinkiehappy:

I'm a sucker for just about every part of this. Damn your eyes.

So it begins

Could've sworn this was gonna be an Archer crossover.

I was thinking Green Arrow.

I thought that this would be an Arrow crossover. Apparently it's The Avengers instead. So, who would portray the other avengers?

I don't know about a character tag, but Archer certainly deserves some attention every now and then. She's got moxie.

I was half-expecting her to go into a Rorschach-esque inner monologue.

Still funny, though.

This needs a sequel!

Dat eyepatch...
Dat name...

I enjoyed it, so I added it to a whole bunch of groups. :twilightsmile:

Short, but still chock full of delicious, wholesome win.

Faved and liked. Well done ol' chap.:moustache:

Now all I can think of is the CMC and Archer forming a Sentai. Their suits would probably look something like JAKQ.
Now, what would it be like? Hmmm.....

BLOOM: With a burning passion! Cutie Red!
ARCHER: With great courage! Cutie Blue!
SCOOT: With an iron will! Cutie Green!
SWEETIE: With a graceful heart! Cutie Pink!
ALL: These four foals united! Cutie Force! Markranger!

Maybe it would be called BASS actually....


I lost it right around 'quiver before me.' :rainbowlaugh:

I greatly enjoyed reading this, a lot of the lines were just plain gold.

“Quiver before me.” :facehoof: :rainbowlaugh:

I love this Archer. Loved all of this. Dang near choked on my pepi while reading it earlier. xD

I do hope we see more Archer stories after this. Archer is wholly under represented. That or just buried in obscurity since there is no character tags for anything beyond what the tags limit people to write about.

Moar, plz :heart:

Umm. . . .where did her wings go? I mean, in her first appearance, she had wings.


I'd like to see more of this initiative.

My face hurts.

This is too good. :rainbowlaugh:

Yes! All of my yes! I love Archer and archery! She's too cute!
And this story was awesomely adorable (or adorably awesome). I know I'd like to see more of Archer, excuse me, the Masked Arrow.


Perfect. I loved it. Keep doing these.

Also, Code Name: Kids Next Door.

To FUNY:rainbowlaugh:

One minute I now have to go to the restroom.:twilightsheepish:

One Minute Later

You used Avengers!

Don't take that offensively, keep doing it, I like it.

I love the story picture by the way :rainbowlaugh:, I looked at it and then I looked at the description and then I read some comments, and then I went, "Hay what the heck I 'll just read it."

Aw yea! I gave 100th like! :rainbowwild:

Nice story. It's awesome!

That was really good! It's not often someone can pull off writing from a childs view of things. There should be more story's like this, just foals and their imagination.

4249751. Stories, it is spelled stories.

Well, i'm a pretty bad speller, and it seems I have met a grammer Nazi. :rainbowlaugh:
No offense, :moustache:

4250777. And I forgive people who have an auto spellchecker putting the wrong words.

Archer?! Noooo! I wanted to call her Scootablue! :raritycry:

Ah well, nice story :scootangel:

they was always something you hadn’t prepared for
a local dive filled to the brim with ponies you stuffed themselves so full

1. There was always something you hadn't prepared for.
2. I believe you meant; That stuffed themselves so full.

Such a short and sweet story, makes me wish I was as young, full of energy and pkayful as them again.

But alas, time goes on and... I guess progress is made

4241351 :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Also, there is always that one person has to dislike. :flutterrage: :facehoof:

:rainbowlaugh: This is the funniest, and most awesome thing ever! Too bad I had to keep myself from laughing out loud due to it being late at night. This whole thing reminded me of Darkwing Duck, and the whole "Defenders Initiative" was just priceless. Well done Purple Dalek, well done. (I love the username too, by the way):pinkiehappy:

For she was indeed a filly, not an icky colt like that Pipsqueak whom the mysterious, agile and tree climbing filly did not have a crush on whatsoever.

also dat ending doe

4235709 you just reminded me of Seikimatsu Sentai Gorenjai.
Excuse me while I rewatch it.

That was absolutely hysterical! Loved it!

>>>Alternatively, Ponyville was like broccoli. Small and icky.>>>

But... I like broccoli.

*Alondro is shunned*


Now they need the Incredible Chunk and Iron Filly and Captain Amareica. :raritywink:

“Bloom Fury. Member of the Cutie Mark Crusaders. I’m here to talk to you about the Defenders Initiative.”

And at this line, I started clapping so hard, that my hands are still sore.

Liked, Faved, Loved, Sequel demanded.

Loved every part of this!

I SUPER want more of this.

Defenders (Avengers), together! (Assemble!)

4258883 Never heard of that one. Is that like a parody or something?

4435564 it's a Japanese comedy skit

Super hero references galore:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Thumb and added to my recommendation group,

This isn't just a story about foals. It reads (to an extent) like a story for foals. That is most certainly not a criticism! I did enjoy it. And the ending is very nice.

This was a really good story, but there's one very minor thing you may want to edit.

No matter how much you studied, no matter how much you practiced, not matter how much Miss Cheerilee helped you, they was always something you hadn’t prepared for.

Also, I hope that there's a sequel that has a joke about the series, Archer.
