My name is Matthew Rock. When things took a turn for the worst and my degrees couldn't get me the job of high-class chef back home, I made the free dimensional leap to Equestria looking for better chances.

Fat lot of good that did me. I'm now stuck at the lower end of the restaurants, a re-vamped donut shop trying to act like the big leagues. The place is a dump as far as I'm concerned, but I guess I need the experience if I'm ever gonna get the attention or save enough money to make it big myself or open my own restaurant sometime.

Gotta spend a little time in hell before moving on up.

Why'd they take Donut Joe out of the character tags?

Now I kinda wish Celestia finds out her guards are abusing their talents on her family. That should be interesting to watch.

Thank you; I now have the one idea I was missing to complete the outline! :pinkiehappy:

Haha! This story was just what i needed. Now im gonna realise its 1 in the morning and pass out. Night.

Oh, and please continue the story.

Yay, finally more HiE stories that don't rely on human saving Equestria! And potential M/M?

Why was this added then deleted from the mind control group?

I was unaware setting it as "not featured" would remove it.
EDIT: It was still there when I last checked. Perhaps only I could see it there? Still, it's back to "featured".

The MC kind of reminds me of Jack from Three's Company.

Great chapter. I love these two together, the way they play off of each other. Although, I'm not really noticing any 'attitude' problem on Matthew's part that would alienate him from other ponies. Is he just being self deprecating or is there something I'm missing?

He's rather foul-mouthed and most of his stuff is said in a rather dry or sarcastic tone. Probably should have clarified that earlier.

The Sun's sweet tooth strikes again.

I totally saw that ending coming, but it didn't detract from the humour at all! :rainbowlaugh:

I like how you portrayed Prince blueblood here, he's a bit snobby and picky but not overly exaggerated to the extreme which tends to be done the worse in HIE type fics like this so good job there.

A couple errors I spotted:

At one point in the meeting with Amethyst, Midnight is referred to using female pronouns.

Speedometers tell the rate of travel in the form of distance units over time: 65 miles per hour. Something that would give a readout of only distance (696969696.9) is called an Odometer.

I like this Fleur de Lis. People usually write her as either a vapid whore or a scheming bitch. It's good to see her as just a normal girl trying to keep her shit together.

Hmm.

Stallion X Man romance? I can get behind that.

Also, how does this dimensiona jump work? Is it one-way only or are there portal stations that aloow Earth and Equestria to be in contact?

It's explained better later, but the gist is this:

Something similar to the mirror is what allows the humans and Equestrians to make the dimension jump to Earth or Equestria, specifically to a sort of "rehabilitation center"/foreign customs stop upon entry. However, repeated crossings are not advised, as too many in one period often leads to multiple health issues, so the minimum mandatory stay in one place or the other is a week, and it is generally preferred to wait a month before crossing back over.
