When a spell goes wrong, Twilight finds herself and her friends... as stallions! Will they be able to reverse the effects and return to their normal lives?

I like it. I love Rainbow Blitz especially. :3

:applejackconfused::fluttercry::pinkiehappy::rainbowdetermined2::raritystarry::twilightoops: this is pretty much how they each feel

"Anvil to the head".....:derpyderp1: THAT, s/he remembers.

After reading through all this, I have only one thing to say: Ha!

Seriously, besides a few grammatical errors, everything about this story is great. Nice characterization, interesting plot, and sounds like you're creating some nice settings.

Keep it up!

Well...that room collapsing was just destined to happen, wasn't it? (An' if you can't see it from a mile away, buy some binoculars and laser eye surgery) Anyways, aside from that adventure contrivance, stereotype this is still going pretty well. The characterizations are all pretty good.

If I remember correctly, though, I wasn't/am not feeling a whole lot of drama in the story. The stakes typically feel pretty low. Sure, there's the danger of being stuck as stallions and of losing their memories (though I'm a bit fuzzy on how drastic/bad that would be...would it simply alter or completely destroy them?), but they feel a bit removed from those dangers.

Fun story, tho.

Curious:coolphoto:Strange:pinkiecrazy:Nonsensical:scootangel: Perfect:trollestia:

:moustache: ladies... :rainbowhuh: ... I.... mean... sup dudes :rainbowdetermined2:

Rainbow and Octavia just made me smile. :pinkiehappy: Well done.

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

Oh Das Magiks :coolphoto: It does CRAZY things

I have to say, that I like how you buck the trend, in stating that RD err ... RB is completely straight. No need to make wild assumptions that are completely baseless.

But maybe a one-off vinylblitz shipping tale could convince more ponies of the believability of a straight Rainbow. Dunno. :derpyderp1:

Oh, is the arrow and the cross series yours too? With the transport spell gone wrong? I used the term colt-crudder in chapter 6 of my 'fic here because it seemed appropriate and I couldn't think of anything better for RD to blurt out.:rainbowdetermined2:

and not minutes after suggesting a little 'blitz shipping, we have octaviablitz.

I approve.
note: just read the next chapter. She came back and talked 'til she passed out, huh? Well played, Rainbow. Well played.

first i was like :rainbowderp: then i lol'd :rainbowlaugh:

On a Cross and Arrow isn't mine, but I very highly advocate that it's a fantastic fanfic.

I don't even know how I thought of that combo. I just said to myself, "let me have somepony walk into the bar." It ended up being Octavia, and I just ran with it from there. I might write a side story solely about their little talk.

Would it hurt them? Yes, in a way. They would go on thinking they've been stallions and Ponyville loves them. I think in this case it's their families that talents that suffer most. For example, Blitz wouldn't be able to do a rainboom. In fact, that fact would confuse the heck out of them when they wondered how they got their cutie marks. And think of what Celestia would be going through; losing her prized pupil! Dusk wouldn't remember her at all. It'd be crazy, to say the least.

If I neglected your comment, don't fret. You have my thanks for commenting on the story and showing how you felt about it! It's great to receive feedback. :twilightsmile:

hey, when they got the out for the first time you put everyone instead of everypony :twilightblush: just some advise

y u no make more!!!:raritydespair:

ben waiting since like forever for a new chapter :|

Sorry about that! I've been super busy with the NaPoWriMo. I'll work on the next chapter soon, I promise.

If you're talking about On A Cross And Arrow, then yes, I used the same names. Both stories were based on Trotsworth's stallion designs, If I'm not mistaken.

As far as having the same storyline, Cross And Arrow has the mane six traveling into an alternate universe and meeting themselves, whereas in 63rd Rune, the mane six themselves change genders and have to try and undo it.

Also, you may have seen my story on DeviantArt, where I post as 'Gig-Mendecil.' If it's not one of those two, than someone is taking my work! :twilightblush:

Thanks for the comment!

Yo. You EVER going to continue this fic?

Fantastic story, but an update is long overdue!

Does the phrase "lesbian trapped in a man's body" mean anything to you?

Amazing story so far. I can't wait for the next chapter to be posted. At the rate it's going I wonder if they will be able to make it in time. Also wondering about the memory necklace...does it get weaker per use in general or does it get weaker per use based on the pony it's used on?

:applejackunsure::derpyderp1::heart::rainbowdetermined2::rainbowkiss::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::applecry::trollestia::yay::unsuresweetie::twistnerd::moustache::facehoof::eeyup::duck::twilightsmile::twilightsheepish::twilightoops::twilightblush::twilightangry2::trixieshiftright::trixieshiftleft::scootangel::rainbowhuh::rainbowkiss::rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild::raritycry::raritydespair::raritystarry::raritywink::rainbowdetermined2::rainbowderp::pinkiesmile::pinkiesick::pinkiesad2::pinkiehappy::pinkiegasp::pinkiecrazy::derpyderp2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2::fluttercry::flutterrage::fluttershbad::fluttershyouch::fluttershysad::heart::derpyderp1::coolphoto::applejackunsure::applejackconfused::applecry::ajsmug::ajsleepy::ajbemused: add all the Things!!!!!

If they forget all of the amazing things they've done as friends, I will be a mighty sad panda :fluttercry: .

I am liking this so far. I am curious to see if there will be a bigger conflict between them getting more and more used to being their new selfs.(aka if you are planing to make them forget their old selfes, kinda like in the Discord episodes, but different ofcourse)

:heart::heart::heart: You finally made it! ^^
I've anticipated your story for so long :D

Turn Left

NASCAR is the solution to everything!

I was ready to go to bed... Who needs sleep? :ajsleepy:
Now write the rest of this masterpiece!!! :pinkiehappy:

am loving this. DONT TURN THEM BACK :pinkiecrazy: this is way too awesome!

Uhhhhhhhhh... Great writing, but a few nitpicks:
1 shouldn't Tia have thought that they were always colts?
2 with their reactions, you list all of their reactions, which I find irritating. It kinda breaks the flow. It's good for the characters, but breaks the flow.

Still, great, absurd awesome fic. Poor spike!

I had no idea this was on Fimfiction as well. Yay :heart:

Brilliant story so far I love it :heart:

1. Only Ponyville was affected by the spell. Everyone outside of it still remembers them as mares.
2. Damn, I'm trying to avoid that! I'll try to stray away from that in the last two chapters.

Thanks for the comments, everypony!

Celestia didn't react as much as I thought she would when she heard Dusk say Berry's name. I was wondering when she would catch on :duck:

♫♥I look forward to reading what happens next in your story♥♪

Hunh... well, you've got the memory dangers seeming a bit more dangerous (though some parts of it confound me... Sweetie Belle didn't gender swap... but Celestia in memory did... I'm not sure why this is happening (and it's forcing me to consider this a minor cross with Cogwork's piece (i.e. they're gaining their male counterparts' memories or something))).
The apparent physical danger is still rather low... sure, Pinkie fell off a cloud, but I don't think it ever felt like Dash couldn't save her and the maze wasn't very threatening at all (nearly lampshaded with the 'just had to go left' line).
I dunno. The stakes still seem fairly low.

1) Only those at the epicenter of the spell gender swapped.
2) Their memories range from garbled to non-existent.
3) Yeah, that maze was more annoying than dangerous.

Pretty much, the risk right now is "lose your memories of everyone you love outside of Ponyville / lose your skills." This mostly affects Twilight, Dash and Rarity, because Twilight would lose Celestia, Dash would lose her signature trick (and possibly any chance of being in the wonderbolts - because hey, a blue mare saved them heroically, not a stallion), and Rarity would have to either learn to make suits or start making dresses again.

Meh. No, it's not very dangerous. It's annoying and a bit upsetting, though.

22169 Ohhh.... now i get it. I feel really stupid... :twilightsheepish:

There is one thing I think you should clarify. If the gender-swap spell they're looking for is so old and is going to be so hard to set up, why can't they just re-do the spell that changed them in the first place. The spell was initially meant to change what type of ponies they were, but a typo caused it to shift to being a gender-swap spell, so why couldn't they just have gotten back into the circle of runes and done the spell again. If the typo had caused the runes to change from a species-swap to a gender-swap, wouldn't its effects have been able to work both ways, both transforming them and transforming them back?


The spell Twilight cast wasn't even finished, so the fact she was able to pull it off is astounding in itself. Because of that, replicating it would most likely make matters worse. As for the spell they're attempting find the reagents for right now, this is a more of a 'reset switch', using ingredients for their situation. If something different had happened, like they all lost their ability to talk or something, Celestia would've needed a different set of ingredients to fix it.


Wait, but if On a Cross and Arrow isn't yours, but you're using the same names, that's not very creative. This is your chance to be really creative; you should use new gender-swap names, not just ones taken from another fic. Just to throw a few out there, I can think of: Nightfall (Twilight), Pinkie Guy, Rainboy Dash, and Rainbow Dude; with a little brainstorming I'm sure you would be able to come up with some really good ones, and show your readers that you don't need to take ideas from other fics in order to make yours creative:pinkiesmile:.
Also, one thing that kind of bugs me about this part is it seems like a bit of a cliche; those pillars had been supporting the roof of that chasm for thousands of years and they just happened to pick that one particular day to come crashing down?

It's also not very creative for other fanfics to use the names of the main six, either? :derpytongue2:

But I kid. I started writing this after seeing Trotsworth's Rule 63'd characters, an I thought they were really well done and wanted to incorporate them into a story. I even asked for his permission to use them! To be completely honest, Cross and Arrow took the names from the same place as me, although I think he switched "Bubble Berry" to "Berry Bubble". So, his names aren't exactly original either. :pinkiegasp:

Yes, the columns falling down was cliche, but it was expected from the second they were mentioned. Big columns? Large cracks? Group of important characters exploring? Yeah, that's bound to come down.

Though wait, would Celestia and Luna become male versions of themselves?
Unless really they have switched memories and bodies with a Gender Bent Alternate Universe Themselves...

The spell only affected the people at the immediate epicenter of the spell

read all of them (so far). Very; very, very cool!
I heartily approve! :pinkiehappy:
