Dubs Rewatcher


Hey friends, Dubs here! I'm a tired college student, an EqD Pre-reader, a Formidable Feather, and a sixteen-time EqD published author. I hope you have a lovely day—be kind to strangers!


E

Twilight Sparkle has been serving her country as the Princess of Friendship for over two years, and she thinks that it's finally time for her to take the next step in her royal career: she wants a fancy enchanted mane, just like Celestia and Luna. Luckily for her, the process behind it is pretty simple—all she has to do is go petition the legendary Author of All Beings. You know, the one that lives near the supermarket. Surely she'll be willing to grant Twilight her new magical princess mane!

Unfortunately for her, there's one catch: the Author of All Beings is a complete troll.


Thanks to ZuTheSkunk for the Faust vector. Thanks to Thornwing, Quill Scratch, Frog Myre, Manaphy, Oroboro, and Foehn for prereading.

Maximum trolling!

I hue'd. :trollestia:
Pretend that's Trollfaust.

The comedic timing here was amazing.

Maximum Trolltle, go!

Sunset spontaneously becoming a Princess was the best.

I for one welcome our human-alicorn princess hybrid overladies!

Newspaper errata FTW :rainbowlaugh:

There are no words to describe how amusing the story is thank you for the good read

I'm still never going to get over the newspaper thing. Thank you, Dubs. That was the awesomest :pinkiesmile:

This is also a delightful fic and people should read it and I'm not biased in any way about this :trixieshiftright:

This story is hairlarious.

Good God that was awful, please kill me

,,, welll all i have to say is....
Haircuts! Hippies! Brainz!

I just... I... what...?

10/10

Fausticorn asking Twilicorn out on a date.

Mind gives me Faust asking Tara out on a date.

"My mind's telling me nooo... but my body! My body's tellin' me yes!"

Fausticorn is still #1 troll.

one on the inside of the desk, and the other just in front.

That chair is noclipping! AHHHH HACKS!
... No but seriously, shouldn't that chair be BEHIND the desk?

What is love? Can it hurt me?

And now I will have Haddaway stuck in my head all day

“What? That’s ridiculous!” Celestia cried. She held a hoof to her chest. “I use the tears of angels in my body wash. But that’s beside the point

Angel Tears Body Wash™ It's a piece of heaven in a bottle!

Oh, Twilight :rainbowlaugh:
Fun little read!

6235777 Both are married women... Husbands would be up in the box heckling.

This's story is perfect! 10/10!

Nothing stands in the way of shipping goggles. When will you learn, mon ami?

Fausticorn is best troll. :trollestia:

“Just last week, I got my horn caught in the royal espresso machine.” She paused. “Don’t ask how.”

I really want to know how that happened. :rainbowlaugh:

“Couldn’t you just get a haircut?” Celestia asked. “You’d look good with a shorter mane.”

Twilight really did look absolutely adorable with that shorter manestyle.

She elbowed Twilight in the side. “I guess you could say she didn’t last long as… Head of State!”

*slams head against the desk repeatedly*

A great story, nonetheless. I love your characterization, by the way. :twilightsmile:

6235956 Did Waldorf and Statler kill the muppet show?

6235969

Statler and Waldorf ARE the muppet show, moppet. :twilightsmile:

If the Mane makes the mare, then here are the means to re-make yourself.
If anyone gets that, bravo.

That news paper article. "Reforming the human race" and "gift Equestria with Reality TV". Love how Baldlight Sparkle came out in that. Sunset is simply adorable. The princess she always knew she deserved to be and commited treason for finally came true.

Loved this story. It's stories like these that make me wish Faust was an actual tag. Amazing job with her in this. My goodness, ponies these days just don't appreciate those with such sense of humor as they used to. xD

Cutest story ever. Love it!

'Grats on the feature!

Thanks, sweetie. Glad to have you looking out for me. :raritywink:


6235794
When I wrote that, I had been wondering if it was confusing. I've changed it. Thanks for pointing it out.

6235831
I spend my days teaching a cinematography class, and I have a co-worker who insists on playing the song at least once a day EVERY SINGLE DAY. That song's gonna be carved into my mind until the eventual heat death of the universe.

6235583
I hope you looked at the author's note, sweetie. I think you have more to do with this fic than anyone. :ajsmug:

I do love Fausticorn used well, and this is definitely an example of that. Hilarious and heartfelt. Thank you for it.

Epic trolls. Epic cheesiness. Epic jerkitude. Epic. Epic. EPIC!!! 10/10

And BTW, Faust, friendship can hurt you and so can love. Friendship turned Discord to stone and blasted Tirek into the Underworld, literally, and Love blasted both Chrysalis and Sombra out of entire kingdoms (pretty sure Sombra is in pieces right now) :twilightoops:. So... yeah, not a good idea to question those...

Isn't Faust the last name of the actual creator of MLP?

“Just last week, I got my horn caught in the royal espresso machine.” She paused. “Don’t ask how.”

:rainbowlaugh:

Couldn't resist.

Angel-tear body wash and lemon cake are now part of my official headcanon.

6236246
Or you are troll, or you are truly new in this fandom guy.

6236335 I've been a brony for a few years, I just forgot the intro credits. XD

I still wanna know what rules Cadance broke.

Here's how you navigate that ceiling fan hazard, Twilight: take your mane and shove it up your ass.

6236345 Like faust said in the begining, love is a concept, not an object.

so full of troll.

...and I love it! Heh. Great job.

6236335 Couldn't he be both? :rainbowhuh:

What a lovely trollfic. Quite amused am I. :derpytongue2:

6236425

Princess Twilight looks at you in shock, her purple eyes wide as saucers.

"Erm...that's a bit much, don't you think?"

“Well, three times, if you count that night Pinkie made her ‘special cupcakes.’”

;D

6236216 Did you know I've actually reached the point where I just skim author's notes without even thinking about it? I mean, I reached that point back when I was 12 and reading fics on ff.net, but the point still stands.

Oh you :heart: Thank you, Dubs. This has brought multiple smiles to my face (not at the same time. Just clarifying.)

Concepts define our existence and the success of society. "Right", "wrong", "success", "failure", "value", "love", "truth", "deception", "friendship", "the group", "the self", "the other", "home", "nation", "RULES", "language"...

None of these are things. But they nonetheless real. It isn't necessary to have a physical form to exist.

Even animals depend on concepts. They form herds, love their children (and for some species, their mates), make friends, use trickery to hunt or escape from predators...

You have the imagination of an author and an artist, Faust. Imagine a world without these things. Or even simply a world without any form of love or friendship--not in ponies, not in animals, not in anything.
Then say that they do not exist.

TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

MY POINT EXACTLY.

6236895 Thank god for Terry Pratchett. Which book was that?

Although my point still stands. You won't find an atom of language or a molecule of sapience, either.

This is amazing.I wish I was a being of almighty power like Faust.

That was really funny. Like, every line was a home-run of comedy.

O DEER LAWD that correction in the newspaper. :rainbowlaugh:
