Oh my God yes! I have to read some of the previous but I'll be back!

Well, this didn't take long. And now the final chapter begins!

60120730 A.D.

Assuming this date is in the New Byzantine Calendar featured in “The Doctor’s Daughter,” that translates as July 30, 6012. The episode in question took place on July 24, 6012.

Suddenly, Jenny's attention was drawn away from the view by the smell of something she had grown all too familiar with over the course of the past five years.

How have Jenny and Bright Eyes been traveling for five years if it’s only been six days since “The Doctor’s Daughter” took place? The year would have to at least be 6017.

I spent my four years at college working in a library and mastered the Library of Congress system in my first week. I am also good with numbers. :raritywink:

"Do I detect banana nut muffins?" Jenny asked with a smirk.

"Besides, I should at least be able to recognize the scent of my favorite kind."

Jenny likes bananas as much as Ten. Like father; like generated anomaly, am I right?

I've been looking forward to this epic finale. And now it's finally here! Can't wait to see what happens. Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

As always, cue the Doctor Whooves theme!

That was a mistake on my part. :twilightblush: It's been a while since I'd last seen that episode and, unlike you, I'm not an expert on the New Byzantine Calendar. I looked up the episode and assumed that had been the whole year. I've changed the year to 6018 A.D. Jenny traveled on her own for one year before she met Bright Eyes. Sorry for the mistake and thank you for pointing it out. :pinkiesmile:

Finally read it! Oh my God I can't wait for the next chapter. Hopefully you don't take a year and 26 days to finish this one. Definitely one of my favorite series!

Discord Whooves waited until everypony had left before taking his glass of wine and throwing it across the room. It shattered against the opposite wall. Discord Whooves smiled as he watched the splattered wine drip from the wall and down onto the floor. "Tomorrow, this Equestria will celebrate its final Hearth's Warming," he stated coldly. "Tomorrow, this will all come to an end!"

Could you get anymore cliche, Discord Whooves?

6597497 I think I saw Penguin do the same thing a few weeks ago on Gotham.

Alas, an update!

"Maybe...maybe I deserve this," mumbled Luna the alicorn.
Human Luna's eyes widened. "No. Don't you go there."
"After all I did. Maybe I deserve this fate."

Reminds me a bit of "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?" I am also wondering how it is the Lunas survived even though Human Luna's head was straight up skewered by pony Luna's horn.

I see why this is called "Loved Ones." Celestia is reunited with her loved one Luna, and the Doctor is reunited with his loved one Jenny.

Well, this was a nice update. This is mostly a set up for what happens next, and I look forward to what comes next. Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

I...I completely forgot about that. I can't believe the party was only yesterday. It feels like years have gone by since that happened."
The Doctor cocked his head a bit. "More like one year, ten months, and thirteen days."

I'm not going to crunch the numbers myself but is that basically how much time has passed since this arc began in real time? Leaning really hard on the fourth wall are you now.

Trixie examined the device carefully. It looked like one of Oswin's guns but fitted more to work for a pony.

“... You just use the magic inside you to fire them."

I think I've seen firearms adapted for use by ponies playing a role in the Discord Whooves Tumblr. But they suspiciously sound like they work like firearms do in Bad_Seed_72's Tangled Roots Trilogy. :trixieshiftright:

"The candies are called Jelly Babies and the cookies are called Jammy Dodgers. They're very popular snacks in my hometown."

Jelly babies! The First Doctor's treat of choice! I don't know if Jammy Dodgers are connected to Doctor Who in any way. I've heard of them though.

"Twilight Sparkle. Derpy Hooves," Jenny started. "I have something to deliver to you." Jenny reached into one of her back pockets. She pulled out a peculiar object and presented to them. It was a silver case about the size of a tissue box. The lid was held shut by golden latches. The letters ERS were engraved into the lid of the case and beneath the letters was a strange symbol: a silver snake within a green crest.

"He didn't give me a name exactly. He just kept calling himself the Writer," Jenny replied. "Does that ring any bells?"

ERS. Edgar Roger Stevens. The Writer! But the symbol on the box is the House Slytherin seal? Why would The Writer have a box with the Slytherin seal on it? Unless he writes Harry Potter fanfiction as well.

"What the hell are you doing?!" snapped an angry voice. Twi and Flash turned to see Donna walking towards them. "Why do you have the Elements of Harmony?!"
"What?" asked a seemingly confused Flash.

"Why do you have them with you?! They're supposed to stay in the TARDIS!"
"I...I don't know. I don't remember getting them! I swear!"

So human Flash might not be evil; he's just doing evil things outside of his own control.

"Donna? What's wrong?" Twi asked.
Standing right behind Twi was a large, glowing, golden wolf. Donna took a few steps back until she bumped into the railing on the edge of the balcony. "What the hell is that?!" she asked.

Bad Wolf! But Twi can see it too now!

"Not another dragon! Not again!" cried Donna as the robotic dragon beneath her broke into a run.

Yes, another dragon! I wonder why it's called Project Firefly though.

And Monty and Opal had quite the Meet Cute. :heart:

Well, I'm glad I finally got caught up with this. Not much actually happened, but I see the set up for some really big things. I look forward to the next installment. Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

I'm not going to crunch the numbers myself but is that basically how much time has passed since this arc began in real time?

Yep. The exact amount of time between the posting of the chapter when the party took place and this chapter. :twilightsmile:

I think I've seen firearms adapted for use by ponies playing a role in the Discord Whooves Tumblr. But they suspiciously sound like they work like firearms do in Bad_Seed_72's Tangled Roots Trilogy.

The similarities are actually just a coincidence in this case.

Jelly babies! The First Doctor's treat of choice! I don't know if Jammy Dodgers are connected to Doctor Who in any way. I've heard of them though.

I think you mean the Fourth Doctor. And the Eleventh Doctor liked Jammy Dodgers. He made a plate of them for Clara in The Bells of Saint John.

6663954 Oh the Fourth Doctor! Why did I think it was the First? :applejackconfused: Did he like candy too? And it was Eleven that like Jammy Dodgers. I think I remember now.

6663961
I don't think the First Doctor had a signature snack.

Oh my gosh! Project Firefly is Discord Whooves' TARDIS! So, it seems everyone and everypony is gearing up for the final showdown with Discord Whooves. However, I'm pretty sure since we're only four chapters in, this upcoming Battle of Ponyville isn't the climax but rather the Ordeal as it is called in the Monomyth. I'm almost certain it will end in disaster and death. But I look forward to it anyway! I can't believe you got this out on New Year's. It was quite the surprise. Happy New Year's and keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

it's been awhile since I've been on this site. the story looks good so far :D

7201533
I'm slowly working on it. It's been a busy semester. :twilightsheepish:

7355263
Still working on it. Took a long break due to personal life drama. I hope to have the final chapters completed before the end of July. If not, I definitely plan to have them done before Season 6 starts back up again.

*tapping fingers on desk* so... Any updates?

7439760
Hit a few roadblocks here and there that prolonged my writing. Hopefully it won't take too much longer to finish the story. Again, sorry for the wait. :twilightsheepish:

7440347 It's fine, im not one to judge what's considered fast or slow in the writing world. Still, glad to hear it's going along, even if the pace isn't nessicerily steady.

6404666
Looks like I ended up taking about a year with this one, and I'm not even done yet. :twilightsheepish: But I'm back on track now and now that I'm writing I don't plan on stopping.

I think I'm dreaming... Please say I'm not...

The Tardis as a dragon best idea yet. ~hugs

Well, I finally decided to read this chapter. And it definitely did not disappoint. :twilightsmile:

“If you want this box, you’re going to have to get past my robot dragon first!”

Oh Donna. As feisty as ever.

He flexed his injured hoof forward. A spark of golden dust emanated from the tip. After a few seconds, the dust disappeared and Discord Whooves gave a satisfying roll of his head. He flexed his now healed hoof and stomped it into the snow.

Discord Whooves is healing himself with some of his regeneration energy.

The Doctor pushed Discord Whooves away and raised his own sword.
Discord Whooves smirked. “Haven’t seen that sword in a while,” he commented before raising his own sword once again.

Is that the sword from "The Christmas Invasion"?

A human woman with flowing red hair was levitating inches above the ground a couple feet from them. Her eyes were deep green, black tears rolled down her cheeks, her entire body was somewhat transparent, and the snow and earth beneath her floating form appeared to rot into an ugly tar.

Amy? :twilightoops::applejackconfused: Discord Whooves' first paramae takes the form of a twisted Amy Pond.

“It’s time!” She quickly flipped the latches and opened the lid. Inside the case, which appeared to be somewhat bigger on the inside, sat a huge white fang. “A…fang?”
Pinkie suddenly gasped. “Where did you get a Basilisk fang, Derpy?!” she shrieked.
“Uh…long story.”
“That thing can definitely destroy the camera!”
Derpy paused. “How do you know that?”
Pinkie stood up and pulled Derpy up along with her. “Trust me, Derpy. I read about it in a children’s fantasy book.”

When did Pinkie read Harry Potter? :applejackconfused: So Derpy destroys Discord Whooves' first paramae like Harry destroyed Voldemort's first horcrux.

Pinkie took a huge breath…and began to sing. “When I was a little filly and the sun was going down, the darkness and the shadows, they would always make me frown!” Pinkie sang.
The woman’s smile faded. “What are you doing?”

I feel like this scene was inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy. Having Pinkie re-utilize "Giggle at the Ghosties" was a nice touch.

The vial smashed on top of Thalia’s head. The magic stream was broken and the ball of magic flew up into the sky, smashing into several Cybermen as it went. Thalia let out a terrible scream as the strange potion cloaked her body. Random bursts of magic erupted from her horn. Twilight watched in horror as the fear in her clone’s eyes was slowly replaced by that of anger and obsession. Thalia’s colors began to invert and change.

And here we see how Thalia finally becomes Thalia. It's kind of Once Upon A Time-y when I think about it.

Her entire form began to dissolve and break apart like burning paper.... The woman then also exploded into a cloud of dust and ash. As the smoke faded away, a ghostly image of Discord Whooves’s angry eyes could be seen fading away into thin air.

In one fell swoop, Pinkie’s head was sliced clean off. The sadist’s face was perpetually frozen with a terrifying smile. The head and body suddenly began to burn and fade away like burning paper. Pinkie’s body finally dissolved into nothing, the faint angry eyes of Discord Whooves could be seen fading away in the smoke above the ashes.

So crazy human Pinkie was also one of Discord Whooves’ paramae! Like Nagini was one of Voldemort’s horcruxes.

“Run...run, you clever mare…and remember me.”

How many times have we had to watch Clara die on Doctor Who? And you got to go and do it yourself too. And you have to give her those infamous last words of Clara's.

Also, why is Flash a speedster robot who can stop time? And apparently this is a possibly a set up for your "Season Two". Maybe if I take another look at your future episodes list, there might be a clue in there.

Well this was a chapter that was definitely worth the wait. Hopefully, given I waited a while to read it, I won't have to wait as long for the next installment. Only two chapters left, and your first season of this epic series is over. I await them with baited breath. As always, keep up the very excellent work. :pinkiehappy:

7804111
Glad you enjoyed it. I've finally gotten a large amount of free time so I hope to finally wrap up this first season before 2016 ends.

Master is that you? I don't recall you being back at all. Hmm anyway. Shall we continue discord whooves torture?

“Make the deaths of those 2.47 billion children mean nothing!”

The number of children on Gallifrey when the Doctor "destroyed" Gallifrey. From The Day of the Doctor.

Matilda gave a sad smile. “Oswin Oswald, huh?”
Twilight tilted her head. “Did you know her?” she asked.
Matilda shook her head. “Not this one.”

Of course, Matilda is aware of Clara.

“NOOOOOOOOO!” cried Renet as she tumbled through the tear, which preceded to close with a loud crack.

Does that mean we're going be be seeing Renet again in the future?

“Take care of each other. Make our Equestria great again.”

:rainbowlaugh: Oh my gosh man!

There was so much death in this episode! Why did Opal have to die?! And then Twi somehow became the Bad Wolf and finally destroyed Discord Whooves! But now she and her Cybermen allies are gone too. :pinkiesad2:

It's not surprising the story wrapped up in the penultimate chapter. That's when they usually do in your stories. I wonder though how things will finally end in that final chapter of your finale either tomorrow or the next day.

And that ending though. Was that actually Missy or was that really the Afterlife? Like the real Afterlife? I don't remember Missy sending people to Hell.

Well anyway, I'm very excited for the end, and I'm glad I don't have to wait that long. You're finally wrapping up this story, and I finally posted my review of Legend of Everfree somehow on the same day. So, keep up the very excellent work. :pinkiehappy:

This was an intersting arc.
I looking forward for the next one.

oh boy the guardians of the galaxy. That'll be interesting. This was very well, awesome. I still need to go through and check off all the previous stories cause i started reading them before i decided to make an account, but that'll be for another day.

A handsome man came walking through the doorway.

its weird cause even though i knew it was starlord, my brain still said "Handsome Jack" and i have no idea why.

7839220
Actually, the "handsome man" is Killian "Captain Hook" Jones from Once Upon a Time.

7841635 oh did not know that. Still thought it was handsome jack for a second.

Missy... this is going to be interesting.

“Besides, it’s the Doctor’s job to get all moody with guilt and all that,” Rainbow Dash stated. Everypony turned to her with raised eyebrows. “What?! It’s true!”

It is, isn't it.

He turned away from Francis and Julianna to come face-to-face with a hooded stallion. He couldn’t make out the stallion’s face but Monty could tell he was a unicorn with a blue coat and a silver mane.

Is that the future Doctor from Episode 7?
 

Opal? Are you really waiting for me?

What?! Opal's alive! :pinkiegasp:
 

“Well, I’ve definitely been through enough over the past day or so. Though, it honestly feels like it’s been longer than that. Like over two years or something.”

There you go being meta again.
 

“It was my fault. Don’t worry yourself,” said the mare who had bumped into Trixie. She had a red coat, a brunette mane, a large red leaf for a cutie mark, and was wearing a denim jacket. She also had an obvious Trottingham accent.

Is that who I think it is?
 

“That must have been a sight to behold. Well, it’s nice to officially meet you, Trixie. Name’s Oswin.”

Eeyup :eeyup: That's the pony version of Oswin. I wonder though, what do red leaves have to do with Clara Oswald?
 

“And I promise that we’ll be right back. It’s just a simple dimension hop. What could happen?”

Those are famous last words.
 

“... You’ve made too many new friends to make that mistake.”

That's kind of the overarching theme of these stories. MLP is all about friendship. The Doctor is always struggling with being close to others given the dangers that surround him on his adventures through space and time. By coming in contact with the ponies of Equestria, The Doctor has for the first time a legitimate network of friends.
 
Oh my gosh! That ending! We get Alex and Quinn from Episode 14, Groot and Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain Hook from Once Upon A Time. (And of course, you have to describe Hook as "handsome".) That would have definitely been something to look forward to. But alas, I read this with the knowledge that unfortunately this series is no more. That makes this exceptionally bittersweet. I hear though you will be posting what would have happened in your stories, and I look forward to that. If I can't read the story, I'd rather just know what happens. Well, this has been quite the ride. It's been like five years I've been reading these stories of yours. It's pretty sad to see them go, especially prematurely. 😢 But I enjoyed it all nonetheless. You are a talented writer, and I'm sure you have a bright future of writing ahead of you. So for a final time on one of these stories I say keep up the great work. :pinkiehappy: Doctor Whooves, MLP, not, you still got a lot of great work ahead of you.

8256940
I'm really glad you enjoyed this final chapter. I really can't even begin to describe how much it hurt me to have to end the series here. But, as I've said, I promise to not leave you and the other followers in the dark. I'll try to get the information up soon. Thank you for following me along this journey. You've been reading these stories of mine almost as long as I've been writing them. And I've always enjoyed hearing your feedback. Hopefully my original writings in the future will be even more entertaining than my fanfics were. :twilightsmile:

8256958
Well I hope your inspired to do a second season. This has been an awesome ride. Good luck!
