"Gold for the merchant, silver for the maid / Copper for the craftsman, cunning in his trade / 'Good', laughed the Baron, sitting in his hall / But iron - cold iron - shall be the master of them all."



They say that Equestria was a paradise. I don’t know if that’s true, but I wanna believe it. There sure ain’t one in this piece of the ‘Verse. Maybe we coulda built one if it weren’t for the damned Confederation. Those bastards wanted every planet in the system under their hoof and wouldn’t take no for an answer. The outer planets fought ’em, and we lost.

It’s tough to get by these days with Confederation lawkeepers looking for an excuse to crack down, bandits and thieves crawling everywhere the Confederation’s not, and the Jesters prowling around the edges of civilized space. Honest work’s hard to come by, and honest folk are twice as rare. Still, a mare has to make a livin’ somehow. So that’s what I do.

Find a crew. Find a job. Keep flying.

To be perfectly accurate, you have to cancel the story halfway through. :derpytongue2: Then come back later to link to a super-long one-shot to wrap everything up.

Good story. Maybe I'll pick it up.

Hahaha, yesss. MLP/Firefly crosover? I am there.:pinkiehappy: The casting makes perfect sense so far (Fluttershy's casting felt a bit off at first, but after thinking about it a little, it really does fit quite well). Be interesting to see how this unfolds.

- Chimera of Team AngelFang

Wait, I just looked at your stories list.

Fuck this. I'm reading it.

I really like this chapter, it was very action-packed.

Dear god, the crossover king has entered the Joss zone! :pinkiehappy: Dis gonna be guud.

Oh...you just crossed over this shit...YES!!!!!

At last, the true, stunning conclusion to Firefly after its unfortunate cancellation: they all turned into ponies.

Waaaaitwaitwait. A Firefly crossover from the mind that brought us The Dresden Fillies? :pinkiegasp:

Sign me up! :rainbowdetermined2:

And, oh dear, that looks like a Tam scenario :twilightoops:

A crossover with Firefly? Yes! :pinkiegasp:

“Hello, there. Real Military-grade Confed-enchanted steel? You are coming home with me, beautiful!”

Gilda as Jayne? Gilda as Jayne. :moustache:

Ooh. Soarin as Wash to Applejack's Zoe. I can see that. It works perfectly! :pinkiehappy:

And who else than Rarity could be Inara? Hah! :rainbowlaugh:

Kaylee is best Element of Kindness :yay:

...I just realized you made Pinkie Pie River Tam, AKA, the psychic. You sneaky bastard :rainbowlaugh:

I never thought I'd see a well written crossover with Firefly and MLP:FiM. Thank you for proving me wrong and keep up the good work!

Liked and followed.

Browncoats, Represent!

Twilight and Pinkie being sisters feels kind of weird, but considering that they're taking the roles of the Tams, they're both perfectly suited to filling in for Simon and River, respectively.

Pinkie Pie: Also, I can kill you with my brain.:pinkiehappy::pinkiecrazy:

4896634 My problem is that I didn't know it existed before now :pinkiehappy: thank you for fixing that for me.

Pinkie as River?

This is gunna hurt, ain't it?

I am trying to mentally merge the voices of Captain Reynolds and Rainbow Dash. It's a little difficult.

I'm hoping at some point they go to Equus and meet Celestia and Luna...

Celestia: "Sup, bitches!" :trollestia:
Twilight: "But... but... Immortality isn't real!" :twilightoops:

I liked it....except...I just can't really see Pinkie as River. I mean, more powerful than she looks, able to work out equations in her head increadibly quickly, socially handicapped and emotionally distant, raised by the government because they realised she was gifted at a young age? That really seems more like Twilight to me. I always pictured Pinkie as Kaylee. Happy to a fault, nice to everyone, good at making things, etc.

Still, suspension of disbelief and all that. Will fav.

Ehh... not really a fan of this type of crossover.

Ok this looks awesome. Personally I'd have cast Pinkie as Kaylee (peppy little ball of shiny who makes flying vehicles:pinkiesmile:) and 'Shy as River (quiet reserved and vulnerable but totally capable of wiping out the whole team in the right circumstances:flutterrage:) but I can buy what you're selling here. Very excited about this and cant wait to see how it goes! :twilightsmile:

Also (going by tags) Zecora as Book is so perfect it's almost racist :rainbowlaugh:

Eeyup, this gets an instant fave. Well written so far, a lot of fun. Can't wait for more!

It's a whole new 'verse, guys. Even if you've seen Serenity, you don't know what's really going on.

Damn it... beaten to it again! :twilightoops: Doubt I could match the 76-0 Thumb rate anyway.

and Fluttershy spent the last of our money on a new compression coil.

Fluttershy, why you wasting money like this? You know the compression coil is never gonna bust :trollestia:

Also, awesome looking story so far, can't wait for more.

I, for one and both anticipating and dreading that sexual tension between Rarity and Dash.:rainbowderp:

To say nothing of Twi and Flutters.

This is going to take some tweaking to work. Not that I doubt at all it'll come out, but the personal interactions need an overhaul to match their personalities, at least.

My question is, who plays Book? I honestly have no ideas.:applejackunsure:

And now I can't help but imagine Angel talking in a cockney accent. Or Fluttershy being taken along to "ease negotiations" with him. His gang should be made entirely of pets from FIM. Owlowiscious would probably be the book keeper.:pinkiehappy:

And what about Spike? I mean having him be one of Rarity's customers would be easy, but kind of a bit part and he gets enough of that treatment already. I can't seriously see him as an intentional antagonist, but he also wouldn't work as Book's replacement without major reworking.:rainbowhuh:

I'm sure you've gotten more than you want of entirely warranted praise from bronycoats, but allow me to add a needy norse god to the chorus:


I eagerly anticipate more.


As for Book in this verse, my money's on Time Turner or Zecora.

Also Sapphron should totally be Lightning Dust...


I could see Zecora. Time Turner has too little characterization besides the reference to work, it'd draw too much interpretation from the audience. Too much hassle.

If this is based off the show firefly, omg I loved that show, its a shame that they called the show

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand...

Damn, I miss that show.

"Pinkie... sugarcube... she's puttin' the hair away, now."

Be-cause there's no gravity, but you can't take the sky from me... :pinkiehappy:


Same VA after all!

So, If I have it right....

RD - Malcolm Reynolds
AJ - Zoe
Soarin - Walsh
Rarity - Inara (this is gonna be GOOD)
Gilda - Jayne
Fluttershy - Kaylee
Twilight - Simon
Pinkie - River

Really hoping Zecora is Book.

4897805 Twilight's smart. Pinkie's something different.

Its not just about intelligence. its about their whole personalities. I simply cannot reconcile stoic emotionless River with happy go lucky, heart on her sleeve Pinkie, OR outwardly aggressive Pinkamina. Whereas, as I pointed out Twilight is a lot more powerful than she looks, able to rainman equations, was raised by the government, and, another thing I didn't think of last time, actually has an overly protective brother.

Pinkie is just too far removed from River. I mean, she hasn't shown up yet, but I just don't see HOW this fic will stay true to both the characters of Pinkie Pie AND River. One of them has to change. So we're either going to get a happy bubbly River, or a stoic Pinkie. Neither works for me.

Why can't Pinkie just be broken in her own, unique way?

I was wary of the premise at first, but I'm enjoying this so far. I'm gonna guess Zecora is going to be the priest.
