Lord Blackadder is the representitive of Dunny-on-Pone, the dumpiest burgh in Equestria. In spite of his efforts to jump-start the Dunny-on-Pone economy and remedy them of their numerous plagues, Prince Blueblood taxes him out of his mind and makes rules regulating the income and market of the civilians of Dunny-on-Pone, making Blackadder desparate to appeal to Prince Blueblood, but there yet another problem: Prince Blueblood is an absolute arsehead. Any attempt to appeal to Blueblood makes things worse, to the point in which Prince Blueblood converts the city into an unpopulated rotten Burroughs. So Blackadder attempts to marry off Blueblood to a smarter mare who will listen to him, but when Blueblood accepts a crooked deal in regards for his choice of "bride", Blackadder has enough of it and decides there is only one solution left: Overthrow Blueblood. Violently. Cunning Plans ensue.

Based off of the Blackadder series by the BBC.

WARNING!!
May contain a very politically incorrect sense of humor, as with the original series. If you are pregnant, on medication, or easily offended, Blackadder of Equestria is not recommended for you. Symptoms of being far too weak to be exposed to Blackadder of Equestria include feeling offended, hurt in butt, grossed out, and in general having your jimmies rustled.

May get M-rated with later entries, though it will likely have a T-rated start.

I hate to say this, but it's one of those things that makes more sense if you watch at least two seasons of Blackadder first.

A pony version of Blackadder, marvelous! Keep up the good work.

I was hoping more for Blackadder the Second. :-(

Must read it in the voices. Just isn't right otherwise.

5547658 Blimey! That's quite on the mark. Any chance of doing Baldric?

5547784 There will be some references from several incarnations of the series, so settle in, pull up a turnip, and enjoy. :pinkiehappy:

5547802 It does help really.

5548028 Credit goes to the FractiousLemon for that image, I just happened to find that and it seemed to closely resemble how Blackadder is depicted in this.

He also did Baldrick, just not with Pipsqueak's coat and mane color.

Take my like, fav, love and virginity for making this. :pinkiecrazy:

5548028
So long as the turnip is reasonably priced I'm not saying no. :pinkiesmile:

I would love to see baldrick become friends with pinkie. That would make my day.

Blackadder, Rarity & Sweetie Belle being descended from Sombra, Blueblood being comical. You sir...are the greatest crossover writer in the world!

I am a fan of Blackadder and this is hilarious :pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh: When is the next chapter going to be done?

5582674
Around Sunday, maybe even late Saturday! Glad you liked it and thanks for faving!!

Shows some promise, actually, though I can't really imagine Blackadder referring to the "IRS" at any point ever; it's just too American a term. If you want a non-UK-specific option, "tax pony" or something maybe?

Thank you for the kind words; the new chapter is up!

I'm rather late to the party, but I also made the edit!

Why is this in the A New World A New Way fan group? It's a pokemon group.

6089156
Sorry, I thought it was a crossover group in general. You can get rid of it from the list.

6089233
No Normal, I don't "like" Blackadder...

...I LOVE Blackadder!! :pinkiehappy: :heart:

...Wait, you like Blackadder? :rainbowderp:

6089285
Okay, I think I officially love you.

Take this turnip!

Nevermind the fact it's on Baldrick's head.

This is the most cynical of fim fic that I ever had the misfortune and displeasure to cos upon:flutterrage:. It both point out the obvious then hypocrisy and incompetency of the equestrian monarchies and shows that the common ramble of Equestial couldn't make the distinction between a politician and a pig, or is it the other way around? But honestly, forget the the first part and the middle part... and the end-e part:twilightsheepish: (pleas don't hurt me:fluttershyouch:); I just love it very much and it made my day on a hilarities note:pinkiesad2:, and I am looking forward to the next installment of this pony adaptation of great British dark humor. Keep it up:pinkiehappy:

6089584
Sorry, I realized that the second chapter in particular really goes over-the-top with the cynicism, and I didn't even mean to! I guess I just have a really dark sense of humor. Anyway, it's going to be something I'll watch out for for now on.

Still, I'm glad you liked it! So, what did you like most about it? What did I do right about it so far?

6089647 Na, I was just joking, the cynicism was totally great, I had a lot of full-blown laughters over this. What I like about this, is that despite Blackadder's cynicism he is genuinely, Sort of, trying to help the deasid infested ponies of his land; helping them by helping himself with others bits, by dubious means, by sucking-up to others or by heel-conceive plots. I especially like the part with the foal cutiemarks where it expenses most eloquently how dyer the situation is for the ponies of Dunny-on-Pone are in. I like the idea of Blackadder having a sort of close relation with Celestia, witch helps establish him as part of the scene, and that any scheming on his part mite be pick-up by her. I would love to see his interaction with Blueblood, Cadence, Shining armor, Fleur Delis, Fancy Pants and especially with Luna witch I'm expecting her to be sort of like Queen Elizabet in season two.

Roflmao! :rainbowlaugh:

Good show, you've quite well established the cynical character dynamic of Baldric and Saddlemund. Even better is the links you've established to Celestia and Blueblood. And I'll admit this chapter actually did reference some of my favorite Blackadder moments. Especially the gone barking mad underpants, pencils, and wibble bit.:pinkiecrazy::pinkiehappy: To which Celestia's response is in perfect synch with what I'd expect Sun-butt's Ponified Blackadderian response to be. :rainbowlaugh:

So, shall we move on to Court and Corkley behaviour? :pinkiehappy:

I only wish my schedule wasn't so utterly wibble today, I was hoping to have proofed the whole thing. :facehoof:

Despite some pacing issues, and grammatical errors found throughout the chapter, it was a lovely new installation. The references to the original Blackadder is always welcomed.

I must say -- I enjoy the way you've written the characters. The writers from Blackadder would be proud. Now, if only we can get Tony & Rowan on a team to do the audio-recording...

There is only one response to something this cynical and... Blackadder-y...

:rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh:

Firstly, some scenes play out too long. Like, when he turns crazy, this bit should be cut and skipped at certain points, as they are unnecessary. (Like prepping the disguise.) I would have restructured the scenes to play out more like an episode rather than what you've done. (Though what you have here is not bad, but an improvement is always nice.)

Otherwise, I like the story.

(P.S. I'd invest in an editor. As I'm writing this, I just got up from a rather sleepless night. Having said this, I remembered seeing a few errors here and there. I can't point out where right now, but they're there. I'd be willing to edit myself if I wasn't wrapped up in my own projects at the moment.)

6102775
I see your point.

I probably won't change the chapter that much (especially because other reviewers would criticize me and downvote my story for making it too short! FIMFiction is weird), but it's something I'll definitely avoid later on, because even though Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack is probably the best Godzilla movie of the millennium series, it's still an acquired taste for me for one simple reason:

The pacing is awful.

Like, really awful.

I'm going to be more mindful of pacing for now on.

When the butler says that cannibalism I frowned upon in most societies reminds me of Tim Burton's Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

6105234
I was probably a little bit influenced by that...:trollestia:
So how is it so far? What did I do right? What did I do wrong?

6105356 So far everything is okay with the new chapter. This chapter is good

Nice prologue

Before I read it, What is the Dark and Gore tag for ?

This is brilliant, good sir. It's every bit as amusing as the real deal. Thankfully for the most part you are emulating the humor instead of relaying too much on jokes from the main show. I am not too crazy about the created religion but well it wouldn't be the Blackadder without having a fair share of pokes to the organized religion. If we can not poke fun of ourselves and mistake satire for malice then what are we?

Though I know I am being broken record as this was stated already but try to find a proofreader at least.

Blackadder's patience faltered for a moment: "Well, if by 'bad luck', you mean 'there's no bloody roof anymore', then yes, I suppose we can say that it's 'bad luck'."

There it is! The quintessential Blackadder humour! :pinkiehappy:
Feel as if the Austin Powers scene is a bit anomalous but in for a penny I suppose.
Looking forward to Hugh-Laurious himself...Yes, I did just make that up on the spot.
Feel free to use it.

Derpy could only give a wall-eyed stare at Baldrick: "I'm always okay when you're around."

D'aaaw!
Aw, why you gotta' be so mean to Derpy, Mr B?

....Now get me two pencils, and a pair of underpants."

Oooooh dear, I know where this is going.

“Oh no, not frobbscrottle!”

Never a dull moment! :rainbowlaugh:

"Get two pencils, and a pair of underpants-" he was cut off by a green magic laser from Blackadder's horn.

CLUCKING BELL!

Okay, theory here.
Celestia has appointed Blueblood dominion over the province of the Baldricks so he can make them so miserable that the Baldricks will either die out and/or kill him, thus killing two birds with one stone.
