Wanderer D

Patreon | Ko-fi are available for subscriptions/donations! Helping pay my bills helps me write more!


When Wanderer D dies, he ends up looking at two incredibly large beings that will decide his fate.

What could that fate possibly be?!

If the fact that this is posted in a MLP:FIM story archive and it has ponies listed as characters doesn't give you a clue... wonder no more and just... read.

This story has been called a 'deconstruction of self-insert cliches'... I call it: 'I need therapy.'

Inspired loosely by the letters: JG and LT. If you get the reference you know your DL well enough.

Not what i was expecting.

Mill #2 · Jun 3rd, 2012 · · · Human ·

"It has to be somepony that would not simply glomp Twilight and try to mount her."

Well, this is when I knew this fic wouldn't have me as the main character.

Ahhaha. A smile from start to finish. Even if I could FEEL the awkward coming off all the situations. Bravo~

This was awesome. Way different then what I was expecting.

You said you would and you did.

I guess all great authors have to write one of these at some point. It's cosmic law.

This was amusing, but I've read quite a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor lately and many of the jokes I saw coming. Still, I didn't feel that my time was wasted reading this and I'll continue to read it whenever you update.

LEO. God, that takes me back to Ranma 1/2 days.

Trixie with no sense of direction? Perhaps she's a long lost relative to Ryoga. In fact, maybe Trixie fell into Pool of Drowned Pastel Pony and mysteriously found a portal to Equestria and has been a pony for so long she now thinks herself as such. And now I'm rambling.

Anyway, funny stuff and looking forward to more!

I approve of this immensely. This is everything a comedy HiE is meant to be; a raucous parody of the genre!

“Well... there was that one time where I wrote an RPG where we summoned Thoth just for the purpose of sending him to get pizza...”
Sound like something I'd do.

Keep'em coming.

Oh man, the giggles started halfway through and by the end I was laughing out loud.

Good show sir, good show! This self deprecating humor mixed with plenty of cracks in the fourth wall makes for an excellent story.

This is the first HiE story I have actually read... mostly because of all the reasons you pointed out.:trollestia:

Making fun of Background Pony? Well I never...

I kid, I love it! Fun story, "D." :pinkiehappy:

I dunno... A little too... how would I describe it? ...'forcibly meta?'
For my blood anyway. I can see other people finding it funny, but it didn't really endear itself to me...

Wanderer D

688450 That's the whole point of it! Just about everything is a reference to the usual HiE stories that get sent over. :pinkiehappy:

That jerk who gave you the downvote has been summarily dealt with.

To death.

Stay frosty, my friend.

This. Is. Going. To. Be. SO BUCKING AWESOME! :rainbowlaugh:

Wander D? Dead? MY LIFE IS RUINED! :applecry:


Well that was... interesting.
The pace is a bit too fast for my liking, but other than that it's actually a really good story (even with all the references to other HiE's). Tracking for now.
((I can practically taste the hijinks that are to come in the next chapter))

Dammit, D, how meta can you get? Although "Sorry, lapse in congruency" made me spit out my booze.

But yeah, funny! Some of it was a bit TOO blunt ("Eat that, Seth" was lolz, but also made me die inside) but it managed to stay on the "wryly self-aware" side of parody for most of the time.


“The problem is that it couldn’t be any brony. It has to be somepony that would not simply glomp Twilight and try to mount her.”


Wonderful concept, nice backdrop, overall wonderful idea.

I will follow this, as I must see this come to the end.

Why couldn't it have been me? I'm a nice brony. I can learn to abandon meat if need be. I wouldn't glomp Twilight or anypony else.:scootangel:

It's like you made a guide into a fic. Clearly Luna isn't the only experimenter here.

I can't help but wonder if Pinkie shenanigans might conspire to make your character-self aware of you. Oh, the shitstorm that would ensue...

Very entertaining story so far.

The line about glomping Twilight nearly killed me.

okay, this story is funny. really funny. Having fun, are we Wanderer? :ajsmug:

Wanderer D

691989 It is fun! :pinkiehappy: But you know what's even more fun? This story, thanks to the 'human' tag, attracts Rate Bombers like moths to flames... I am having a field day banning the morons into oblivion.

690726 Something that happens way too often in HiE stories, methinks :rainbowderp:

690453 Ye gods... :rainbowderp::derpyderp2::trollestia:

690417 you might be too nice... :raritywink:

689936 If all things go according to plan...it's going to be 6 chapters long. But will be updated sparingly since I have other projects to concentrate on first.

689850 :raritycry:

689791 Glad you liked it! :rainbowlaugh:

689750 Did you guess Who I'm meeting?

689735 That is very nice of you to say... if a tad disturbing.

689664 Your life?! What about mine!?

689662 :yay:

689655 Thanks much Obs, as always I know I can count on you!

688020 Well... I couldn't help myself. :twilightblush: I do love my Background Pony though...

687946 Oh, and there's more to come!

687408 You sir, are awesome if you share my passion for invoking the gods and sending them for pizza. Word of advice: Tlaloc is not a good option.

687366 LEO is a Ranma fan-fiction reference of course :pinkiehappy:

687314 And I'd do it again. So I will... with the following chapters, at least.

687235 Thank you! :pinkiehappy:

687194 Indeed :moustache:

686870 But that's a good thing, right?!

*possible spoilers?*
inb4 Doctor Whooves
I honestly can't remember an episode of Doctor Who where there was a pool in the TARDIS, and I'm a pretty avid fan of the series. Maybe my memory just sucks :C
BUT IF IT IS DOCTOR WHOOVES, WHOA NELLY, I haven't read very much fics about our resident Time Lord, but the one's I have read are really good.

692152 Even if in jest, hearing you call me awesome really made my day. :twilightsmile:

692152 You're not wrong! I can't think of another pony that gets as much human action as Twi, except maybe Dashie. :rainbowhuh::twilightoops:

If you died I would rip open the space-time continuum, find your past self and make him finish all of your stories.

Well... I'm in an awkward position.

See, I like to at least READ things I review before I give them a proper review; but I honestly and legitimately couldn't do that here. Part of it is a time issue, I'll admit, but the rest is basically that it's just so hard to actually read. Now, I'll come clean, I'm not really that big on parodies in general; I can appreciate the fact that a lot of people like them, and well done ones CAN be enjoyable. But this... if I had to say it, it seems like it's trying a bit to hard to BE a parody. It reads more like a bad attempt to write a human in Equestria fic; which may be part of what you wanted, but you did your job a little too well this time. I won't say it's bad, as there's clearly a lot of people who enjoyed it, but it just seems a little too much for me.

Maybe when I find the time, I'll give it a second go and see if there's anything that I can gleam from it that would make it worth my time, but I can't make any promises.

This sounds amazingly epic, and I want to see where this is going. :raritystarry:

If you died I would rip open the space-time continuum, find your past self and make you finish all of your stories.

Well, it's going to hard to explain to Trixie how he came back as a pony after jumping off a cliff with three timber wolves... still, cool story. You get a derpy.:derpytongue2:

“As if I would trust you with either wings or a horn. You get to be an Earth Pony.”
Yeah right. As if earth ponies don't have magic >.>

Wanderer D

696339 Luna underestimates my ability for chaos.

694715 Um... h-hi Trixie, guess what? I'm a pony now?

694433 My past self would be very, very confused.

693780 I'm just hoping it keeps being entertaining for all!

692911 No worries, you don't have to force yourself to read it :twilightblush: I did try hard, I'll take the whole thing as a compliment even if it loses me a reader...

692234 It's never shown, but it's mentioned on occasion. The most recent mention I can remember is on the first episode of season 6. I think. Anyway, when the 11th Doctor first appears, it is mentioned.

Hopefully not so confused that he couldn't finish The Moon's Twilight.

This is hilarious, self insert to the extreme!

I don't know what I liked more, the fact that Luna and Celestia were worried about Twilight getting glomped upon the human's arrival; or was it the "Take this Seth!" kiss.

I can't wait for him to talk with Sweetie Belle and Twilight.

D: "So how did your dimension hopping trip go?"
:unsuresweetie: "Huh?"

D: "Would you happen to have a psuedo-evil fillyfooling clone, or planning to screw up a teleportation spell of some sort?"

692152 Let me reword this. I care that much about your life so that you may continue to dazzle me with fanfics.

I think Wanderer D is secretly jealous of authors that have tons of fun writing gratuitous Mary Sue self-inserts

My sides.:rainbowlaugh:
More, please more.:pinkiehappy:

I suspect this will be a lot of fun, if you update it at all. I'm concerned that, given the new rules, it might be a bit hypocritical to continue. Of course, that's taking the wider definition of meta-fiction. If the new rule refers to the more narrow version, then by all means, lead us into glorious laughter.

I'm glad to see this, regardless. I love me some HiE, but there's so much out there that's absolutely horrid that it gets difficult to browse through the archive looking for new ones to read. Since you are a Mod, and given that you've proven yourself with this chapter, I'm more than willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.

In other words, +track.

Edit: Having read your most recent comment on the rules post, I withdraw my concerns about hypocrisy, and will eagerly await new installments. Also, turns out you write two more fanfictions I already read. I REALLY need to start paying attention to who writes what. Shame on me.

Such a mick take, It was hilarious, even if my story is taken the piss in there somehow.

I dont remember doing this........:rainbowhuh:

What is this I don't even-

Need chapter 2.

So much win!:rainbowkiss:

I need moar asap, or else you will feel the wrath of the Moglin army!:flutterrage:

~Derpster out!

That was so funny I almost died laughing :pinkiehappy:


Are you trying yo kill me?:pinkiegasp:

Luna giggled. “I poisoned his soup!”

Okay yeah, I'm tracking this. :pinkiehappy:


“Wait... I'm going to be a HiE?!” Wanderer D asked in disbelief. “Have you no shame? No sense of decency? There are few things that could be lower than that!”

I am not regretting this decision. ^_^

EDIT4: You know what, I can't possibly hope to quote all the most hilarious-awesome lines in this fic so I'm just gonna stop here. :P

"Don't worry, I have a katana!" is going to quickly become this story's catchphrase.

Katanas fix everything.
