Batman has defeated many foes in his life. The Joker, Two Face, The Riddler, Poison Ivy...just to name a few. However, no matter how hard he tries, there was one foe he could never defeat...Time.

Finally beaten, he admits defeat, ready to give up...

But a tiny white unicorn might have something to say about that. A single word that gives him hope. A legacy. A way for Batman to conquer time itself, even if Bruce Wayne cannot.

That word...is "Father".

You going to do a Star Wars one? Just a question

Not in the current plan.

Their was also a large scorch mark

1. There.

Hah, figures Bruce would be immune to the D'awwws of those dastardly ponies.

Now Rarity will inherit Wayne Enterprises :rainbowlaugh:

So let's see...We've got a fully combat trained Fluttershy, Applejack the soon to be demon killer (has a nice ring to it, don't you think?) and now The Fabulously Dark Night...mare.

Shouldn't this require a Human tag? Also, baby Rarity!

You sir.... deserve this.

Bruce Wayne just had a "My Little Dashie" moment with Rarity.

Hhhhmmm, consider me... intrigued.

Seriously though, for a first chapter, not bad. A little short and the pacing seemed to shift a bit too and fro. But overall, I'm interested to see where you go with this; I'm looking forward to how the master detective solves the conundrum of a talking filly.

Looking forward to reading more :twilightsmile:

*puts intobookcase for watch later and tracking*

Rarity's coat isn't a pure white. It's more a very, very, very light gray - eggshell-white, perhaps.

Kinda like how Vinyl's coat is in fact a very, very, very pale yellow.

Good start, I'll be interested in seeing where you take this.

...i think i realized just WHAT it is thats throwing me off from one about Aj, Pinkie, and now Rarity.

Why are they still ponies?

It didnt seem to bug me as much when it came to "Fortress-shy", because she was more or less treated like a...well...overly adorable pet at first but became something else later on. With "The Sparkle", Twilights form didnt seem out of place due to the nature of the R&C settings.

But in Gotham? Ancient Greece? Whevever DMC takes place? I dont think so...

And i know you've said your primarily focusing on the father-daughter nurture relationships...but I just cant shake the feeling that it feels off.

That said...I will be watching them. Warily

So...yeah. I think I found my disconnect here.

5143954
You're asking how them being ponies goes unnoticed?

In the setting of God of War, in ancient Greece, all the mythological Greek monsters are also running around like crazy. Pinkie Pie is the least weird thing Kratos has encountered since his blood oath to Ares.

In the setting of Devil May Cry, Dante hunts demons for a living. The rest of why AJ goes unnoticed will become clear later.

As for future Gotham of Batman Beyond, genetic engineering and magic have become much more commonplace, so a talking unicorn is a curiosity, and if the premiere philanthropist and business tycoon - Bruce Wayne - treats her as a person, no one's going to think to question.

As for the as yet to be written "The Technological Technicolor Technomare" where RD is raised by Tony Stark...Tony's fought aliens before. The world is aware of aliens. Ergo, Rainbow's just classified as an alien.

5143983
Overexited Alien Conspiracy Nut: "SKRULL! SKRULL!"

TTTRD: "But I'm not a skwull..." :rainbowhuh:

Tony Stark: "You, sir, just insulted my daughter. Enjoy your lawsuit."

TTTRD: "DADDY!" :rainbowkiss:

Stark: "That's right, Skittles, the adoption was approved!"

On a separate note, I see that you are using most of the titles I suggested. :twilightsmile:

5144381
Yup. They were good titles.

Although "Pony May Cry" was tossed aside, along with the first backup title "Apples on Pizza".

5144381 Lol! Skittles is a GREAT petname for little Dash!

There's something I've noticed that I'm rather curious about. Aside from Fortresshy, each of these stories has had the ponies arrive with their cutie marks intact, regardless of age. Why is that? Something to do with an inability by the parental figures to explain what they are?

My only real concern... So no Terry?

5145090
Because in Fluttershy's case, the way she was going to be raised would drastically change how her special talent would develop. With the rest, however, either their special talents won't change (Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash), their special talent is significant to the plot (Twilight Sparkle), specific events will trigger something unique with their special talent (Applejack), or what changes is how they manifest their special talent (Rarity).
5145102
Nope, no Terry. Sorry.

5142594

Rarity will...

Oh gosh. That would be AMAZING.

5145255 Fascinating. Well, keep it up. The more of these I see, the more it catches my attention.

I'm going to wonder if all of these stories you've been creating involving this self-made genre would eventually collide into a single overarching plot line... And by Celestia that sounded awesome in my head.

...IS THIS YOUR MASTER PLAN?! All of this is too awesome not to be!

Ahem. Sorry. Over excited myself there. Most likely not the case, right? Right?

5145535
With the exception of Fortresshy, Sparkle in His Eye, and On The Corner of Straight and Narrow, the rest were specifically created with such a crossover continuity in mind.

5145555 Dang. :rainbowhuh: You thought this through. I hope you one day reach to that point. Cheers. :moustache:

Okay, now I know you're more than likely to cross the canons of the stories you've made and what's yet to come :rainbowdetermined2:

It'll be a treat if you actually decide to go for it. :rainbowdetermined2:

What's next? Street Fighter Rainbow Dash? :rainbowlaugh:

Pinkie Pie and Ghost Rider? :pinkiecrazy:

5148624

Pinkie Pie is with Kratos, putting the laughter in slaughter.

Rainbow Dash is going to Tony Stark iirc.

5143983 I agree with your reasons for why the presence of Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle will not be a problem for the worlds they are in. I also do not have a problem with how Fluttershy was accepted in the TF2 world. However, Rarity's presence in Gotham does bring up one issue. Bruce Wayne has done everything he could to keep his life as Batman a secret from the public. Since he can't keep Rarity in the Batcave or the house for her whole life he will have to let her be seen by the public. However, she will be the only unicorn of her species and will be seen as the daughter of Bruce Wayne. My question is this; won't the villains and civilians link Rarity to Bruce Wayne when she starts her crusades as Batmare? Even if her costume covers her completely (including her mane and tail), she would still be the only unicorn in Gotham. Someone would have to make the connection that Batmare is Rarity, which would make them remember that Rarity is Bruce Wayne's daughter, and may make them understand that Bruce Wayne is Batman.

5157268
That point of someone connecting the unicorn Batmare to being is actually a major plot point I intend to address within the story.

5157571 Interesting. I can't wait to see what you have come up with when that happens. :twilightsmile: Keep up the good work!

P.S.: Ever since I have learned that Pinkie Pie was to be paired with Kratos I have wanted to ask you something. What did the universe do to you for you to make that pairing happen!? Pinkie Pie with the power and training of the terrifying god killer? The universe stands no chance whatsoever and you know it! :fluttercry:

5157608
What made me think to make it happen?

Well, it probably had to do with that one time I speculated a GoW/anthro Equestria crossover where I shipped Kratos with Fluttershy, although Luna wanted a turn until she found out he was technically her Grandfather...

Or, I come up with crazy ideas all the time, and some just work good as stories.

5157652 Well, either way, I can't wait to start reading that story when it comes out. :pinkiehappy:

5157685
The Kratos/Fluttershy shipping one?

5157814 Actually, I meant the one about Pinkie being raised by Kratos. Sorry for the confusion.

5157827
Ah. "Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter" is out. It'll have more chapters soon.

5157997 I see it now; I couldn't see it before because I had the mature filter set to off. :derpytongue2:

5158054
Yeah...God of War, by definition, is Mature.

I am beginning to love your works! Rainbow and Iron Man/Tony Stark, and now *seeing after the first reference* Rarity and Batman/Bruce Wayne!
What's your next plan? An avenger, or a DC? If you have any more plans like these. :yay: :pinkiehappy: :derpytongue2:

5219505
Check my recent stories for more.

5219889
I have seen that most of your stories include a mixture of MLP and random movies/show/*maybe* book characters.
And I love them all! :pinkiehappy:

When can we expect MORE?!? I am extremely excited to see where this goes, if you couldn't tell by the previous sentence.

Oh God... please tell me this is the old batman, bot the snap the jokers neck and then spit on his corpse then use a gun Batman

5428701
This is specifically old Batman...as in the one from Batman Beyond who got too old to wear the suit.

5428708
Oooohhh... the one where Joker kidnapped a Robin, tortured him into becoming like him and making him his son, then was killed by said Robin.

Bruce is not good with children.

5428737
...yes, that Batman.

...you're referring to "Return of the Joker", right?

Dat Update. :pinkiecrazy:

5437674
