Co-written by myself and Tenure

A mysterious blacksmith with a troubled past trundles into Ponyville as he wends his way to nowhere across Equestria. A chance encounter with three boisterous foals leads him and them to an adventure they'll never forget, which will change their lives forever.

NOTE: Does not include either Indy nor Nazi's - sorry to disappoint... but it's pretty good :)

Da, is nice; Well written! The Kai Pony approves! :yay: ~Yay!~ :yay:

Cutie Mark Crusader Cutie Mark Crusaders go! :unsuresweetie: :scootangel: :applecry:

Do a sequel! Or! One that is actually like good ol' Indy. Either way, it'd be epic.

I would actually LOVE to do an Indy crossover or Indy-like episode/adventure...

BTW, there's another person that's put this EXACT same story up, but in multiple chapters, not one big on. SO who wrote it first? You, or them?

if you mean "raiders of the cutie mark" which is some 25k words and about 9 chapters, then it's NOT the same story at all. It does feature the same cover art, but to my knowledge this went up on EqD before the other story was even written. If I had better or different and suitable cover art, I could probably be persuaded to change it, but I don't.

This one was written by myself and Tenure, and I have his permission to post it. I can show you the google doc if you wish, with the edits in it, so if anyone else has posted this story under a different name, then I'd like to know.

Hope you enjoyed it though!

I did enjoy it. A LOT. And I stand by my want of a sequel. :derpytongue2:

:applecry::scootangel::unsuresweetie: : CUTIE MARK CRUSADER CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS! YAY!

A delightful story, and very good job characterizing the OC.

Dat ending!

Herp derp, forgot to comment after I finished listening to this! V:

Excellent work. You made good use of the "mysterious blank-flank stranger comes to Ponyville" trope, the CMCs, and of course Granny Smith. Her scene was definitely my favorite part of the story. It's really unusual to see the CMCs being good at something, too. The message of what a cutie mark stands for was played out well in Smithy's redemption. Wonderful!

It only took you a year to read it :pinkiecrazy:

Sounds about right. :B

Nice to see some good adventure stories!:rainbowkiss:

And then they made an episode with the same name...

And what an episode it was! Easily in my top 5 :pinkiegasp:

Read this a week after I saw the episode. Loved it!
