Rainbow Dash reveals the little-known fact that pegasi can survive in outer space, and Pinkie Pie dares her to take her to the moon, so that she can party with the moon ponies. Space is full of dangers beyond a simple lack of air, but with a little help from her friends, Pinkie Pie just might win past them all and prove that ponies can party whereever they please. Even if the moon is full of weasels.

Okay, this is pretty good!
Might want to consolidate this into less chapters with more words each, though.

553950 Yeeeah... I know what you mean. They're a lot shorter than the chapters most people post, which makes it look longer than it is, which might scare people away. As in, the whole story so far is about the length of one chapter from a typical story. :derpyderp2:

And if it gets long the chapter list could get really unmanageable. :ajsleepy:

The best part about this whole deal is the fact that it sounds like an actual episode: not too far outside of in-place lore, but still ambitious enough to make you keep reading. Good work! :yay:

This is actually quite brilliantly written: very funny lines, nice interaction between characters, consistent characterization... I can only guess that the reason this story seems to be so underrated is because the formatting of the chapters is scaring people away in the first place.

Keep up the good work.

Sooo ... forgot to protect her against vacuum? Or radiation? (I guess I should just read the next chapter). n.n

The Smarty Pants incident? c.c

But they'd already solved the air problem! Scuba gear!

Awww, poor Fluttershy. *petpets*

And I guess that's one way to reconcile the Ditzy/Derpy name discrepancy. n.n

Using poison joke does sound like something Twilight would do. So geeky! <3

Ponies in spaaaaaace!

Assuming they actually do make it to space this time. n.n

554006>>554205 Thanks!

555105 Vacuum, mostly.

555517 From Lesson Zero, when Twilight enchants her Smarty Pants doll to hypnotize everyone who sees it and Celestia has to swoop in and save the day.

555545 They don't have enough!

I like it so far. Keep it up!

keep writing, you making ME, a lover of more sane fanfics a lover of this fanfic :pinkiehappy: keep it up! and keep the lols coming :rainbowlaugh:

Eeeeeee!

Filthy's going to have to pay for it now.

Poor Rainbow Dash and Thunder. Yikes.

568314>>568796 Thanks! I'll do my best to keep it funny... although meeting aliens is bound to be spooky. Well, it shouldn't be *that* dark or I'd have put a dark tag on it. :twilightblush:

572727 Technically, Pinkie and Twilight are in worse trouble right now, although I guess obvious solution is obvious.

Tight ninja suit would work, you know. That's the principle behind mechanical counterpressure suits!

586788 Ha! I did have a character improvise a mechanical counterpressure suit in an RPG session once. I wouldn't think off-the-shelf ninja suits would do the trick, but I've never actually tried one on to judge how tight they are.:rainbowhuh:

As a friend of guy behind the Sperrets, I'm quite amused by this crossover. :pinkiesmile:

Yay! They found Dashie! Or at least a monitor hooked up to a camera that's on her.

The language-learning game was cute. n.n

So the moon ponies are ... ponies? Weasels? Weasel-ponies? Humanoid weasel ponies? With hands and clawed paws? :pinkiecrazy:

... I think I need a description.

Also, magic beats technology! But Blizzard beats Pinkie.

660444 They're weasel-furries. Well, space ferrets.

Magic and technology are not designed to counter each other (yet?), so they tend to trump each other randomly.

Aha! Space ferrets are moon ponies!

I guess sperrets are usually pretty mellow. I hope Warp and Wolf are okay.

Also, poison joke is NOT FUNNY! It needs to tune its sense of humor.

660502 Heh. It probably gets worse every time you're exposed, because you're ready for what it did to you last time.

Derpy, the mistress of information warfare attacks! :derpyderp1::derpyderp2::derpytongue2:

696030 Without advanced sperret defenses he would have been hypnotized indefinately! :pinkiecrazy:

Is Derpy-hypnosis a fanon thing? O.o

She seemed pretty scary, pushing Chance around like that!

704973 Sort of. :derpytongue2: It wasn't actually supposed to be literal hypnosis, just morbid fascination, but if it keeps you staring it's going to trigger your defenses because memes can be sneaky that way.

And just because this plan ended with the ship being destroyed and all the equipment buried and burned and all the moon ponies turned to stone in Twilight's dream doesn't mean _anything_ will go wrong with it in reality!

Also, poor Derpy.

725742 That was just a dream! And everypony knows Twilight is kind of paranoid about how Celestia will react to everything she does.

It's not like Twilight was having a prophetic dream accidentally granted by the untrained unicorn whose special talent is predicting the future. :twilightsmile:

Yay! The giant space weasels aren't dead, they're just dragged into banishment on Equestria and imprisoned in the place they were banished to!

Maybe Twilight can ask Luna what happened to them, if they make it back to Equestria.

Oh no! The moon is Princess Luna's HEAD! D:

Pinkie Pie's singing cracked me up. Especially the other characters' reactions to it. And "And other things that somehow rhyme with shovels". =D

784678 All I could think of was 'hovels' but that doesn't really go with moon. :facehoof:

At least they're only planning to drill a hole through a small ridge and then reshape one of her ears. I mean, mountain ranges.

'None of us know your name'. Heeheehee!

The conversation about who might be the superuser is amusing, too. It *does* make a lot more sense, when you think about it...

That Pinkie Pie still does musical numbers in text cracks me up for some reason.

824591 Which makes sense? Discord being the super-user? :pinkiecrazy: He'd probably be really annoyed if he heard someone say he made sense.

As for the singing, well, she has to inspire competence *somehow*. Wait, that probably only makes sense if you play D+D. :twistnerd:

Hopefully this chapter isn't too graphic, but I figured 'hey, I have this 'teen' rating that I haven't been using -- let's make up for lost time!' :pinkiecrazy:

O.o

Pinkie's nightmare was pretty funny. "How was I supposed to know they were planning a surprise party for me?"

845594 Luna certainly enjoyed it!

Great. Now I can't help but hear Luna's lines in Harbinger's voice!

Public-key cryptography using abacus? Ouch!

851049 From what I understand, the hard part is generating the key pairs. It probably takes new recruits a couple days. :trollestia:

..and yeah, it's basically a cruel, cruel prank.

(and I couldn't resist the ME2 quote, sorry)

The last part reminded me of Skies of Arcadia- "Moonstone-Cannon-----FIRE!" :pinkiehappy:
Alternatively, the Rains of Destruction. I always liked the use of orbital weaponry in my fiction.

860650 Nightmare Moon only wanted eternal night so that she could keep Equestria safe with her orbital battlestation. It was all a misunderstanding. :twilightsheepish:

I like Celestia being paranoid and untrusting; it's a nice change of pace from how omniscient everyone seems to picture her.

Keep up the good work!

862144 I get the impression that Twilight Sparkle is Celestia's Derpy.

Parasprites. Gala. Want-it-Need-it. Ruining her brother's wedding. "I just don't know what went wrong!" :twilightblush:

862421 To be fair, she saved that last one. She went about it the worst possible way she could've, but still.

863378 Heeheehee! I do consider her teleporting around the wedding rehearsal, shouting 'Evil! Evil! Evil!' to be a crowning moment of awesome for her, though. Yes Twilight Sparkle! Use your powers of Introversion to embarass yourself like no pony ever has before you, or ever will again!
