Sarcastic Brony

Give me one reason Celestia isn't best pony. Pro tip: You can't



This story is a sequel to How many friends have you made today?!

Things are a lot better for Anon since the events of Ponyville. His store is doing great and he enjoys the company of all his friends. As the days go on, he finds that the problems of the past are quick to haunt him as he is forced to face the one thing that hurt him the most.

All this waiting finally ended, faved and thank you so much.
Very nice way to show human technology to ponys (at last Luna). In dreams you don't need to know how something work. It work because you know it work that way in reality.
Anon learning actual magic from Luna. Sorry I can't name another ability to send mental messages to somebody subconcious through great distances.
And I see you followed some suggestions from comments of HMFHYMT. Trixie as friend of Anon is somehow fitting in my mind, this could be a great occasion to reconcile Twilight and Trixie and amend friendship between them.
Again, thank you so much.

This is so awesome!!!!!!!

So yeah, I'm glad this has started! HMFHYMT is one of my favorite stories on Fimfiction, so I'm glad the sequel is finally here! :twilightsmile:
Do you have any idea what the uploading schedule will be? Or are you just pumping these chapters out at random intervals? Either way, I'm looking forward to the next chapter!


Maybe you could have chrysalis steal him?

Celestia takes a moment to compose herself. She isn’t too sure why, but her heart was beating faster than normal when Anon was hugging her. Even her cheeks feel a bit warm. She hopes she isn’t getting sick.

You are very sick m'dear, you've caught FEELS.

Amazing return! I can't wait for the next chapter, you glorious writer!

Celestia is happy for him, but, she feels something missing in her life. Something that seems to lessen whenever Anon is around.

So, when you take nothing and lessen it further, what do you get? Something negative.

To think the very same human use to only talk to her and her sister at one point in time.

C'mon, at least try to proofread your long description.


I never make set times for chapter posting. Above all else I want to ensure quality posts. So that means that posting time may vary.

Can honey be considered a sugar alternative?

Well, technically speaking, Shining and Cadance haven't had their wedding yet. So the who changeling thing hasn't happened yet. You never know.

And now he gets a harem, despite literally being distrustful of EVERYBODY last fic. Consistency? What's that?!

Just three words...

and a video.:pinkiehappy:

>Implying that the ponies that like him are strangers
>Implying that Anon will be interested in anything romantic with a pony





When i saw "complete" on the first story i was all :raritydespair: but then i saw this :pinkiehappy:

Good first chapter, can't wait for more!

5912959 lovers: a term generally used for ones with romantic attraction to each other.


Sugar beet, honey, maple syrup, and stevia extract comes to mind.


Woudn't be surprised ponies used something like that as alternatives too.


Can honey be considered a sugar alternative?

>Natural sources of fructose include fruits, vegetables (including sugar cane), and honey
Is that answers your question?

>Implying that I understand words and didn't just pick the title because it sounded nice.

I am making this prediction now: Celestia and Anon get married and make human-pony hybrid babies.

Quite a few grammar and capitalization errors though. Like "saturday" should be "Saturday" but those are nitpicks.

Maybe what Twilight needs is a journey of self-discovery through other countries. She's been rather sheltered all her life.

Does he now? I don't remember reading that.

5912918 Should I expect their wedding in this story's timeline?

5912918 Quality over quantity, I get ya! I'm personally a fan/user of the 'I-have-no-plan plan', which includes only doing things when you want to do them... :pinkiehappy:

Glad I got a response! (even if some people disliked my comment >_>) Like I said before, looking forward to the next chapter! Take however long you like, as long as you have fun doing it, and make good chapters! :twilightsmile:


am love this so far I can't wait to see what happen next

So many potential love interests, so little Anon.

He thanks whatever gods there may be that he hasn’t run into Twilight during his limited time around the castle. However, now that he’ll be getting free time soon, the chances of running into her will be a matter of when and not if.

And oh what fun that will be, but what about Fluttershy? If I remember correctly wasn't she sent to Canterlot as well to train in controlling her Stare?

5912918 Have a cigar smoker. You're not you when you're not smoking.

"The mouth up there may be saying ’Yes...’"

"But the one down here is saying ’Love me~’"

MY god...it is beautiful...I must have more.

I'm confused, what happened between Anon and Twilight? Why can't Twilight live in Pony Ville? What's the situation between Anon and Lyra? Is that story based off another story?

See that big thing that says "This story is a sequel to How many friends have you made today?!" located under the tags?

....Yeah... You're kinda missing a ton of story.


This story is a sequel to How many friends have you made today?!

It's right there in the description.


OMG! I'm so nervicited! Augh! It's happening! :pinkiehappy:

A side story eh? I like it!

Just wondering, but do you have an editor, by chance? I noticed a few missing letters here and there, a couple misspellings, some problems with present, past, & future tense. I could help possibly..?

I would send a PM, but the message system is really buggy & incompatible with phones. But that's only right now. I'm on my compy later.

“That sounds dangerous.” Celestia says in worry.
“It’s very dangerous.

That's why I use it to send casual party letters to my friends.
Someone needs a lesson from Uncle Ben me thinks. :raritywink:

This is where it begins. I will be honest with you guys. I have no plans for what will happen in this story. I'm going to write and see where it takes me. I hope you all enjoy the journey, because nothing is set in stone.

Not to be pessimistic, but that's not too encouraging. That kind of thing is often a recipe for writer's block and a story that never gets finished.

I stopped using editors a long time ago. They're unreliable. If people want to point out major mistakes then I'll fix them as fast as I can.

It's how I write all of my stories.

ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!

Finally a sequel

This is where it begins. I will be honest with you guys. I have no plans for what will happen in this story. I'm going to write and see where it takes me. I hope you all enjoy the journey, because nothing is set in stone.

I know the feels, bro. I write and just see where my demented brain takes me. It's a lot less demented than I hoped, most of the time. Sad.

On the whole, the story needs editing. It reads fine until a typo or a punctuation error pops up...

She, allowed this?” Celestia asks in disbelief.

That comma. It annoys me. It does not need to be there. I understand you are trying to convey a pause in her speaking, but the punctuation is not correct. Instead (for example), go with; "She," —Celestia paused as she refocused herself— "allowed this?"

If you have a comma, give reason for it to exist. Otherwise, get rid of it.

I don't mean to nitpick. I love the chapter and enjoyed the previous story immensely.

Also, Saturday, not saturday.

Sorry...another nitpick...

5913144 Are you going to show the current state of the Elements of Harmony, like how they're holding up after everything and how they're handling their punishments?

... and look at how many of them are semi-permanently on hiatus.


I already pointed out two mistakes in the long description, yet both of them are still there.
