My name's PJ. I'm from New York. I write pony fics. I go to parties with bronies. I'm not good at self-introduction.


This story is a sequel to Lyra's Human

Several years after the events of Lyra's Human, Derpy Hooves decides that she's lonely, and wants to meet a human for herself. Together, Derpy and the human have crazy adventures across worlds as both learn what it means to be true friends.

:pinkiehappy: epic Ditzy and epic human = EPIC STORY

Oh, this is going to be reeeeeeeal good.:pinkiehappy:


Because while Lyra wants hands, I want my story to have legs. :raritywink:

Damn.. I really don't want to start on this until it is finished. I don't like waiting to see what happens next, lol. How long will this story be compared to the last one?


Open-ended. I'm trying to make it much more laid-back than LH1, which was my goal for that originally before Lyra and the protagonist fell in love, and I couldn't stop them.

500726 They gained something of a life of their own, eh? You might want to ask pinkie if she had anything to do with that. Oh my god... idea for best story ever. Story about a guy writing a story and he goes insane while writing and convinces himself that pinkie is breaking the fourth wall irl and writing things in for him, though it is described in a way that makes the reader question if he is insane or if pinkie is actually breaking the fourth wall.
I know I read a story earlier about someone trying to write a story and pinkie is breaking the fourth wall but yah... that was more of a comedy.

We have legends from Greek mythology talking about a Pegasus. Wonder if she's gonna get sent into the past at some point... :pinkiegasp:

Erm... I feel like it is a VERY BAD idea to send such an innocent pony to earth. The feds will steal her. So lock yo doors, hide yo pony, cuz they be stealin (or raping) everypony in here. :derpyderp1::derpyderp2::derpytongue2:

They should send AJ or Rainbow there. HNNNG that would be awesome. Also... how hard could it possibly be to find a fellow brony that would wanna live with derpy. It doesn't matter if derpy isn't their fav pony, they would still go. I would...


Derpy may be innocent, but she is NOT stupid. She can handle herself, trust me.

As to the second, would you really, REALLY in real life, want to move away from family, friends, and your life and go live somewhere else where you didn't know the culture? The way I'm viewing it, it's more like an exchange student program than just a brony recruiting. Also remember that Lyra has limited communication to the human world.

504070 Hell yes I would leave. The people I called friends at one time resent me, the few friends I have anymore are breaking apart from me, literally 50% of my past is repressed so I don't remember any of that shit, I can't stand society and the social norms set by morons, and my family is pretty much the same as roommates to me.
On occasion I have a good day and things are pretty nice but that is rare. In fact, I take solace in sleeping because I like drifting off away from this world for those 8 hours or more.
I would give anything to live away from other people or to go to a better place.

It was a rather long wait... BUT THAT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! I guess taking more time and care with stories does result in better quality :raritywink:

Lol Derpy. I love it when people don't make Derpy this storm of madness that ruins everything and can't form a sentence. The smarter side of Derpy is the better side.
Those spells are a good fail-safe for any corners you write yourself into, very good planning on your part. Keep up the great story, I can't wait for the next chapter... well.. never mind. I can wait for a very long time as long as the chapters keep this excellent quality. :pinkiehappy::ajsmug::rainbowwild::raritystarry::twilightsheepish::facehoof:

I was wondering when the next chapter would appear. Dat Vas Fun!


Schedule for this one is that each chapter is published at midnight UTC between Wednesday and Thursday.

I was actually referring to the current chapter, as in wondering past-tense, but thanks anyway. :derpytongue2:

Lolollol the part with the quill. That was a very good end to the chapter. I can't wait to see what twilight does when she tells her this story. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild:

Uhmmm I just got to where she said to make sure SafeSearch is on.

I have a VERRRYYYY bad feeling about this... Derpy please avoid the dark side of the brony fandom

Dark side? What dark side?:pinkiecrazy:

603335 U know exactly what I'm talking about. What if derpy ended up reading Sweet Apple massacre?

By the way I don't trust those sentient programs. I feel like they lied and are going to form Skynet later. lol

Just put some Aperture Science Morality modules on them. As part of a required test protocol, they are no longer allowed to lie to you.:trollestia:


The living is a lie

Holy mac-AAAAAHHH! Submit, transcribing software! Submit o-AAAAHHHHH. SUBMIT!

What a gem!

And yeah, playing dumb around perverts really CAN pay off, believe it or not.

Well, I'm sure that there's absolutely no way Derpynet and Karynet will show up later and be relevant to the story again. Nope, not a chance. Nuh-uh. Not happening. :trollestia:

Dude, I did that, like, 10 seconds ago! Stalker!:twilightoops:

And where did you get that smiley?

605395 i was just catching up on the story and it popes up lol

Good idea: bringing Derpy to see a movie
Bad idea: showing Forrest Gump :trollestia:

Lol. Nice heartwarming chapter. Hockey woulda been better, but still good. (Hockey is best sport)
The part where derpy scored the goal was missing something. You shoulda written it so both pinkies dove towards the ball, hit their heads, and that is what caused them to miss it. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Oh yah.. that reminds me. The part with Pinkie splitting into two of herself was awesome. I love seeing her break all physics XD

I like the fact that you're making Ditzy (I refuse to call her Derpy because it sounds too offensive in my opinion.) as intelligent if not moreso than an average pegasus by having her use magic similar to that of a unicorn.

Derpalicious, eh?
I have to wonder, though, where's the other guy that was hanging out with Lyra? did he like, die or something? I forget what the end of the story was... :fluttercry:
Guess I'll have to read it again.


She's a fairly blank canvas based on what we've seen on the show. In my view, she's given to malapropisms, and she might be a bit impulsive, but there's definitely a wisdom here. Also she raised a filly to adulthood, and you've got to learn a thing or two doing that.


The protagonist of LH1 is still living with Lyra, but has been basically written out. One of my goals in the first story was to avoid revealing that character's gender, and that was hard enough to do in a first-person story. It's downright impossible to do in this one.

I think you messed up on the italics too, maybe this will help

Wow, so if I leave an open tag, it just carries over to whatever comes next? That's some funky coding.

It's nice after reading a few action-centered or mystery-centered fics or watching violent cartoons or reading/writing something random to cool of fwith some good, clean fun with a smooth story and just the right of fact mixed with fiction.

On that note,
All ya have to do is take a cup of fun and add it to the mix!
Now just take a little chapter that is done and post it to give their fix!

Writing is never just a cinch, it takes image-gin-nation!
Lots of devotion, finger-motion, and some dediCATION!

Fanfics! Sweet and delicious!
Fanfics! Trolls can be vicious!
Fanfics! Fanfics, fanfics, FANFIIIIICS! :pinkiesmile:

Lol derpy.... that's not how you spell Viral. I love this story, it's so cute. :pinkiesmile::twilightsmile:

FAUST (really good story though)

I love the way that you introduce Karyn to the mane 6. You don't just throw her into their group like most stories do. :pinkiehappy: Also if I were Karyn, I'd probably ask to keep the dress back in Equestria. You wouldn't want such a thing to get stolen. :\

I LOVED the scene were they get their cutie marks. It nearly brought tears of happiness to my eyes. :pinkiesad2::twilightsmile:

Great chapter, man! Can't wait to see more of this excellence!

Karyn, I think, has far more self-control than me. Then again, I'm pretty vulnerable to guilt-trips too.

Not much culture shock for the human, eh?

I'll believe it when I see it.

Ah.... This was, is, and will be a good laugh. Keep it up, my friend.

Ten, ten million dollers :pinkiegasp: Y U SELL diamonds! think of all that money!


Probably a good idea. I likely won't write it, but you can assume it happens. . . unless I get desperate for a plotline and need to have it stolen. :twilightsmile:

And the next chapter in Equestria does not include a Mane 6er, but will have a canon character.


Thank you, thank you both.


Think about it for a moment. If she went to sell them, how would she answer the question of where a college student got her hands on so many rare gems? Then, let's say she got the money. How would she explain that to her friends and family? And how could she trust that her friends were really her friends and not just gold-diggers? But let's go beyond that and say that she got all the money in her bank. She'd have to spend a lot of time and effort with tax people and financial planners. And what would she do with her life afterwards? Not have a career? Be an idle socialite? Nobody likes those people.

Easy money is never easy. That's the theme of that part of the chapter.

A human cutie mark, that's different. I don't think I have read a story were that happened. So if a human stays in Equestria long enough would they be able to use magic?

Yeah, they're not real like AAAAARRRGH! :rainbowderp: :pinkiegasp:

Inevitable, it was.


Ditzy is giving me invisible puppy dog eyes that make me want to type this. :derpyderp1:
