Bucking Nonsense

A Little Nonsense Now And Then Is Relished By The Wisest Men.


This story is a sequel to The Moon, The Flower, And The Door

Effective Immediately, This Story Has Been Cancelled.

"Anyone Can Be A Wizard..."

Morning Glory has succeeded in passing Princess Luna's test, and is now her personal protege... and soon to be her foster daughter. All seems to be sunshine, lollipops, and fluffy puppies forever... until Luna makes a discovery regarding the young filly's parentage, one that could wound the young filly's heart terribly. Keeping this information a secret seems wisest, especially given the connection the young filly has with Celestia's new student, but it soon becomes clear that this is just the tip of the iceberg, as the filly begins exhibiting strange and seemingly inexplicable talents. The young filly seems intent upon becoming a wizard, in spite of being an earth pony. Is such a thing possible, and is Equestria ready for it? And if so, what kind of a wizard would she be?

One thing soon becomes clear: No matter what the outcome turns out to be, something big is about to happen in Equestria, and when it's all over, nothing may ever be the same....

Totally worth staying up 'til 11:44 (here). ...Even though I had no idea it was coming. Still!

Flash Sentry as a stalker seems oddly appropriate. I refuse to think of him differently now and you can't please don't make me.

Haven't even started reading it, and this is the first thing I see;

It wasn't a dark and stormy night.

It really should have been.

Best opening ever.

I always preferred Blur over Oasis.

Not that I really cared about that Britpop musical feud.

That explains a lot. I suspect Butterbean and Celestia would get on very well indeed :trollestia:

Not one of their better songs. The lyrics are incredibly repetitive.

It's here! :pinkiehappy:

6455842 Addendum: he's a stalker for hire. He usually asks for monetary compensation for his stalkings, but this time he's doing it for free because Butterbean is family :pinkiecrazy:

Meticulously crafted and enchanted amulet... Am I the only one that thinks this is a big fat obvious clue that the little filly is an unwanted child of (Princess) Twilight Sparkle herself?


6455992 I think she is too old for that because this seems to be around the same time as the show which would put her at about the same age as the CMC. For what it's worth, my money is on her being Twilight's sister based on the description, although there are certainly other possibilities.

So... you need a little time to wake up?

You're making me like a story where Flash Sentry is portrayed in a good light.

The name alone normally starts my facial tic.

Consider that exhibit A that you're a good writer.

Hmmm. I sense Chekhov's Gun.

A good start. I look forward to more.:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:

Only now? The prologue was practically loaded with them.

6456077 Prologues always are, so mentioning them would have been redundant.

Wasn't this Pooka in either a blog or some backstory thing for the Morning Glory of TKIDLLTE? Because I remember this exact scene.

Woohoo it's arrived!

It doesn't rain in Cloudsdale, either, barring that one time where it mysteriously rained upwards for a week. Given that Discord was still in stone at the time, nopony can say for certain how that happened, although given that a grey filly with a blonde mane was born that particular day...

Wow took a little while to stop laughing at the punch line at the end of that one. :rainbowlaugh:

Another enjoyable chapter. Good job.:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:


6456088 I was thinking the exact same thing....

Heh, good memory. Now, if you can remember the name Galaxy, then give yourself a cookie. Oh, but don't blurt out what it is pertaining to, or the story it is in. I don't want to spoil too many surprises. :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright::trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright::trixieshiftleft:

Yes it is. It's been more than a year, but I hadn't forgotten it, I just waited for a chance to use it.

*reads desc* Now Morning Glory, are you a good witch, or a bad witch? :trollestia:

This looks amazing. I can't wait to read more.

This is intresting very intresting!!! :pinkiehappy:
Can't wait for the next chapter.

I like that you don't make Flash an idiot just for the fun. I'm not a fan of him but it gets realy boring realy fast.

AAAAH! Tales of the Questor? You referenced my comic?? I am so flattered!

You really make me want to read a story about the weirdness that was caused by derpys birth if it caused it to rain up in clouds dale. Also glad to see this going.

6456089 Looks like sound reasoning there for alicorn Derpy. :derpytongue2:

I've always liked the Puka ledgends. I don't know why I never thought to use them.

6455944 >implying Oasis is anything but britpop garbage fronted by two of the largest douches in music
I bet you like Blur too

Correction tendered benignly.


pegasi. Or pegasus ponies.


Ooh, this is very interesting. I'm totally following to see where this goes.

6456454 I LOVE YOU TO BRO!!

A constructed language per-deal would be safer—not that one cannot corrupt any language one chooses.

Oh dear. She has been kissed by one of the fae.
It's still spelled pegasi.

Why do I have the feeling the third boon is going to be friendship or something like that?

Fae? The Fair Folk? Oh. Oh dear.

As a fan of the Dresden Files, I can see all sorts of ways this can go hilariously wrong.

Please, do continue. :pinkiehappy:

A faerie ring as a teleportation device. Now this is very interesting. I believe we're going to see more of Blackberry in the future, and I hope the interaction between Morning Glory and the mysterious colt is going to be more interesting than this one.
