I proved my namesake in a duel of honour. The crayon never stood a chance.


In celebration of 2015! We have made it, folks. We have made it to the Future!

"Little Lady, I swear you're going to be the first filly to ever be grounded before she was even born!" - A Very Concerned Father

Have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you had become an engineer, a farmer, a heroic airship captain, a vet, the leader of the anti-robot resistance, a baker, or maybe the overlord king of Tartarus? Have you ever wondered what the future might have been if you had dated person A, had that fling with person B, married person C, became the faithful servant of goddess D or pissed off evil godlike entity E? Have you ever wondered where life would have taken you if you were destined to be the universe's last hope-...err, rather, sire the universe's last hope? I used to.

Now the products of all my possible life choices have come over for dinner. From the future. And they are adorable. And they are my children. Apparently they are each from different parallel futures where particularly excellent life choices on my part had led to various big evil monstrosities and demi-gods taking over the entire universe. Luckily, each timeline has one last hope - these little fillies. And they have come to save me from assorted assassins from their various futures who've come back in time to kill me to stop them from being born. To top it all off, these little fillies have got to fix what bit of history they haven't blown up by making sure I get together with their mothers so that they can actually be born. It doesn't help that they all came from different mothers. And choosing one may or may not create a time paradox that might erase the others...or the entire universe as we know it.

The universe is gonna be fiiiine.

Features slice-of-life filly-raising shenanigans filled to the brim with sugar and diabetes with a side of backseat romantic comedy and filly-powered swashbuckling action for good measure.

This is one of the funniest and most bizarre stories I've seen so far.

"It's a maple syrup, butter, marmite, jam, lemon sorbet, nutella and peanut butter pancake sandwich."

I'm not sure which gave me diabetes, that or Vivi...
Probably Vivi.

AHA! I am still in the past of 2014, so quick, tell me tonight's lottery number so I can buy us both vast, immeasurable amounts of stuff! 8D

(Also, I am upset that someone else has figured out the formulae for cute. I mean, happy, but also a little upset.)

Dear lord, Pen... what insanity have you wroth this time?

Off to a fun start, looking forward to more!

Oh, and I too am wondering where the flying cars, hoverboards, and 3D hologram movies are (was born in 1984).

"Clothes?" The little pony gave a little giggle as she trotted to keep up with me. "Where we're going, we don't need clothes."

I found more back to the future references, but I don't need to tell them all.

The actual one from the movie was,
"Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads."

Epic story, I can't wait for more!

So much potential for craziness :pinkiecrazy: and Daww's :scootangel:
I will be watching :rainbowkiss:

This...this will be good

Well, scientists have 364 days to invent all that stuff :derpytongue2:

'We're so getting turned into a pony when we get to this Ee-testy-place'

*deep breath* Y'know, usually avoid fics where the human is turned into a pony. And by "usually avoid" I mean it's my fondest wish to have them all thrown into a firey crucible where the only thing they can hope for is a single second of slightly less pain.
With that said, however, with this line:

and the only one to come close enough was somepony called Tirek who summer-rise-d it in his last, famous formula, 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO', before being blown straight to Tartarus."

And the other fics (all of two) I've read from you, I'm willing to try to put aside my prejudices and give this story a fair shot.

Nice. Looking forward to reading this. :twilightsmile:

This is great. I can't tell you how much fun I had reading this. Great job.


I'm sorry alright.

I wanted a diabetes inducing acapella that could play all night.

Its Ponyville's fault. After the way they treated Trixie
I decided that I would take over the universe and give her the greatest stage EVER.

The weird part was how easy it was to set my Sweetie Bots from Snuggle to Crush.

So we have Sweetie Bot the ter-mane-nator...

*Slow applause* :rainbowlaugh:

Certainly one of the more interesting HiE setups.

Off course it had to be.

Of course it had to be.
Also...update of this one as well? :flutterrage: Come on, Pen Mightier, don't doom me to a lifetime of clop! I mean, I've been waiting 10 months for that other story, How To Raise Your Moon, to be updated!
