This is a story written to fill some of the missing episodes from Arcainum's season 1 series. I've gotten permission from him to do this. I also asked him if he wanted me to change the title a little to avoid confusion, but he allowed this as well. I did, however, add in the description that this is filling in missing season 1 episodes, so thank you for that. I hope this will avoid further confusion.

I applaud you my good sir, with work like this it may just drive grammar nazis like me out of a job!:trollestia: Least I can't find any so far... I have no imagination to use ANY of the lines in MLP to fit!!!! :raritycry: Now we only have like... umm... 15 episodes to fill? Was it more or less?

... IDEA!!!:raritystarry:

Have maybe Lyra or Bon-Bon use Pinkie's line "I call em' combos.":moustache:

It might save confusion if you changed the title to "Harpflank and Sweets: Episode 23"? Just a thought, I totally misunderstood what you meant when you said original title!

But srsly, hooray! I really enjoyed it. Sorry for dragging you out of your not-writing-pony time =p

A lot of credit goes to Arcainum and JohnPerry for catching my mistakes before posting. Having pre-readers you can rely is worth so much, it's not even funny.

Thanks for enjoying! I've already got more ideas than I know what to do with. I'll probably submit more when I need to take a break from other projects.

I updated the title to at least be a little different from yours. I guess I didn't think this through as well as I thought. Oh, well. Live and learn.

And don't feel bad about me not working on other stuff! I wanted to do this! Ponies 4Evar!

Well done. I can taste your flavor in the text, and while I prefer the original, this was a tasty treat. Trixie vs. Blueblood. Rock 'em sock 'em robots.

Ahem. It must be said.

WYLD STALLYNS! *air guitar solo!*

Alright, got that out of my system now. :) Very well done! Nice touch with Trixie pulling out Rarity's "Afraid to get dirty?" line, and the epilogue with Celestia and Blueblood was cute. His "political espionage" line makes me wonder, was he actually working for Celestia the whole time, to spy on Luna's operations?

I quite enjoy these bonus episodes. Arcainum, I think your awesome for letting people do this, and R. T. its just as awesome that you wrote this.

Mmm. That's good alternative fanfiction.

490235
EXCELLENT!

Not really. He was just looking for a change in scene. Plus, I liked the idea that Celestia wasn't too concerned, just curious. She's good at making us all wonder just what's going on in her mind at times.

BUT, if Arcainum says otherwise, then follow what he says. Any flubs in his world are entirely mine and his word is God.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun and I thank Arcainum for letting me play around in his world for a bit. I've got more ideas for episodes, so there may be more down the line.

Truly. I think that the differences between your styles is like differentiating between 2 different brands of potato chips. Though I think that last chapter in the original fic has moved into Barbecue flavor range. Regardless your take on this episode gives us one more closed gap in the void. Thank you.

You know, I think Princess Celestia let Blueblood join her sister because she knew he would just be a hindrance to her.

Nice job! I had been asking when somepony was going to play the megacello.:pinkiehappy:

Nice stories in the same spirit as the original! Please keep this up!

Oh Lyra, you so funny:pinkiehappy: Hmm... Maybe if there were clones of Ly and BB? (could be failed opposite gender clones as well but eh, an idea throwing it out there.)

I know, right?! How could it have gone this long?

841217
I do have other ideas for episodes, so stay tuned. Same Sweet time, same Sweet channel!

I don't think the world can handle clones of Lyra. It's just not big enough. Although...:trixieshiftright:

And they are read! That only took like three months. Starting with the compliments, there were a number of really great little character moments that were my favorite parts. You got the Lyra and Bon-Bon dynamic well with the "Whaddya want to do" and "They ate my Megacello!" scenes; Derpy being utterly nonplussed by getting caught in the door; everything Blueblood did. Using Blueblood and robo-parasprites as premises also worked out really well.

On the other hand, I can't say anything ever captured that Harpflank and Sweets dialed to eleven feeling that makes the series so great. It seemed like it only got to an eight or nine. I guess it's a little difficult writing in someone else's canon and trying not break anything, but next time try to find a moment that makes you think "Yes I am really going through with this," and after that, keep going. And I do hope you'll be writing a next time, these are good.

Dialed to eleven, huh? I'll have to think about that for next time. I did have a few things that I said to myself, "These have to go in here!" but it looks like they weren't as awesome as I envisioned in my head.

Arcainum is the master and I can only hope to be his lowly apprentice. I'm just glad he allowed me to get away with as much as I did.

Thanks for reading and enjoying!

Very nice, fits in quite well with the original.

That was great, I hope there might be more coming at some point.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun and Arcainum's world leaves plenty to work with.

1279591
Thanks again! I do have an idea for a new episode, but it's kinda on the back-burner at the moment as I have a joint project going that needs to get finished first. Afterwards, I'll see if I can crank out a new episode.

Till then!

I wonder if Trixie built funds for Luna by selling collectable lunatron figurines.

The :pinkiehappy: and the :twilightoops: :twilightoops: :twilightoops: :twilightoops:, the :pinkiehappy: and the :twilightoops:! If it makes sense then YAAY!

Coming soon to a Barnyard Bargains near you! Collect the six figure set!

One is a :twilightsheepish:, the other's :pinkiecrazy:!

2542161 Let's just hope they don't hear their triggers again. I forgot what one was but I remember the other being a grandfather clock chiming

They're Snips and Snails,
Yes, Snips and Snails.
One is a doofus,
The other's the same.
They're hired pony help,
They're cute as a whelp.
They're wimps,
They're Snips and Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snails!

Before each night is done,
They'll give their plan a whirl.
By the time Trixie finds them,
They'll have impressed that girl.
They're Snips and Snails,
Yes, Snips and Snails.
Their moonlight campaign,
Is easy to explain.
To make their boss less snappy,
They'll make Trixie happy!
They're wimps,
They're Snips and Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail Snail (narf)!

See, after seeing Vinyl and Octavia's dismissals of Snips and Snails, who were only trying to convey a vital bit of information ('cuz lets face it. You know that gun exploded moments after they dismissed them)... all I can think is that i'd love to see some kind of 'government inspector criticizes everything' episode in which that scene is used against them.

...
What? They were being jerks in general, and Octavia especially there.

2542556
Heh, that would actually be a good idea for Season 2, where M.A.R.E. has been exposed to the public and the citizens now demand that regulations be followed.

Perhaps somewhere down the line... :trixieshiftright:

Poor Snips & Snails, underappreciated and undervalued.

Were they up to anything in particular in Season 2? I don't really remember offhand.

2543432
Not sure. They haven't appeared in Season 2 from what I can recall. I'd have to bug Arcainum on that. My guess is that when Trixie moved over to M.A.R.E., she brought over Snips and Snails as her personal cheerleading section.

A mare's gotta have her entourage!

You'd think that a secret organization would at least know how to do background checks. Then again, with their commander's "system" for paperwork...
