Times are a-changing in the lands of the Diamond Dogs, and not for the better. Beset by the dangers of the surface world, their newly-established above-ground kingdom of Diamondia is in need of aid from friendly neighbors. Luckily, they just happen to be within a little over a week's journey of the most friendship-loving beings in the world! Surely the most loyal of canines and the friendliest of equines can work something out with only a minimum of misunderstanding, culture shock and inadvertent acts of war, right?

(Originally written for Equestria Daily's "Outside Insight" summer fanfic contest, but it's not going to be completed within the time limit or the word limit.)

A respectful treatment of the Diamond Dogs as sensible creatures? All my love!

This is fascinating. Normally I can't stand chapters this short, but it just seems appropriate considering the narrators. I have never seen the ponies from quite this point of view before. Looking forward to seeing what you've got in store!

Cutie Mark Crusaders Good Hound Scouts, YAY!

So, does this take Friends Forever #6 as canon?

Yep, that's the same Diamondia. That's the only one of the comics I expect to actually be important to the plot, though there's also a throwaway reference to the pirate arc of the main comic in chapter 6.

The next chapter might be a little while in coming; I'm currently making yet another attempt at continuing Mare Doloris right now.

Well now. You have something special here. This is really good - keep it up. :pinkiehappy:

This is such an interesting take on ponies as much as it is on Diamond dogs. It makes them very insular, panicky herd animals, without them seeming too different. Cheerilee here seems, quite frankly, close-minded and bigoted, and while that is not something most people would associate with her character, it still feels like Cheerilee, rather than a different character with her name latched on.

Not sure how to word this, but he narrative "voice" is really well done and a pleasure to read. Also, this take on Diamond Dogs is both refreshing and enjoyable. I'm looking forward to reading more. :twilightsmile:
