Exploring probability space for fun and the absence of profit



This story is a sequel to Oversaturation

When Ditzy Doo woke up, it seemed like it would be a typical morning, apart from the world coming apart at the seams. Then a massive magical shockwave swept through the universe, shoved her out of it, and sent her careening through alternate timelines.

Most of those timelines are populated by tiny horses.

It's going to be an interesting day.

Rated Teen for implicit unpleasantness and a bit of raunchier humor than my usual. Also, there will be spoilers for the previous story.

Yes, I had to Google Humansville too.

Always nice to see a new fic from you, Fan :twilightsmile:

Question: If we have not yet read Oversaturation, how lost can we expect to be?

:moustache: And how that multiverse got into her pajamas, she'll never know. :moustache:

A fair amount of content is going to seem to come out of nowhere if you haven't read the previous story. There's a brief recap at the beginning, but...

Actually, I'm kind of interested to see how it works out for someone who hasn't read Oversaturation. Go for it if you really want to. Be sure to report the results of the experiment! :twilightsmile:

There really wasn't any other option for the chapter title.

I like the idea that the embodiment of harmony can also appear as Black Lotus. Very Gathering. :twistnerd:


I know: I saw. But it was a chance to use Spike with an implied Groucho mustache. How was I supposed to pass that up?


Oh. I am liking the opportunities!

Before I click that link...

Oh please oh please be The Marx Brothers...


Hot damn!

Sunset Shimmer is capable of seeing the cracks in all of reality, but can she see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

This is so much love :heart:

And so many fun opportunities :raritystarry:

Well, that happened. Another Best Pon....human in ETSAB.

The cross references to your other fics are numerous here. Quite the experience, this.

Man, why are five different authors I enjoy all releasing new stories on the same day? :raritydespair: Gonna have to dump this one on the Read It Soonest for when I catch up on Oversaturation.

About an hour later, midway through the Night Watch's investigation of the Gonne, Ditzy vaguely acknowledged the doorbell ringing.


Ditzy has impeccable taste. :rainbowkiss:

Put simply, you weren't.

"Kids 'love' Cinnamon Toast Crunch because of the nationwide advertising campaign that tries to convince them that sugar-coated cardboard is delicious because it has squiggles on it. Sorry if I'm being a bit brusque, but right now I'm ensuring that the fine structure constant stays that way."

The nice thing about establishing a polycosmic manifold is that you can make an overarching continuity out of stories that constantly contradict one another.

There was a bit of a backlog; I hit Submit on Thursday, and I may not have been the only one.

Man I want even more now. Any thoughts on continuing this more? It such a great premise.

What if this was the real reason that Ditzy/Bubbles/Muffins/Derpy is wall-eyed? :derpyderp1: "I can see the uuuunnniiiivvvveeerrrsssseeee"

That's always been my hypothesis. Her eyes are focused, just not on anything we can perceive.

Equestrian Girls Vimes. Well ain't that an image!

Ah, "Skullcrusher Mountain." My favorite Jonathan Coulton (or however you spell him) song after "Want You Gone," "Still Alive," and "Re: Your Brains." Discord has good (or at least apropos) taste in music.

Also, I share the headcanon that ponies, especially Pegasi, are exceptionally resilient to crashes and similar sources of impact damage. Also, that ponies have a slow healing factor that lets them have narrative-conveniently short hospital stays, especially when they have an earth pony caring for them. (This may be relevant to the fic I'm currently working on. :derpytongue2:) This makes it a lot easier to justify having multiple high-octane action sequences in close chronological proximity.

Thanks for the fun read.

And now I'm imagining this Ditzy fangasming when she meets the version of herself that is actually a planeswalker.

This may or may not have already happened.

Pony regeneration would make a fair amount of sense, especially for earth ponies.

As for the fangasm, yeah, Ditzy Planeswalker tends to be quite popular with her other instances. :derpytongue2: Should you feel inspired, I'll just leave a none-too-subtle link to the Oversaturated World group's flash fiction thread. You know, just in case. :raritywink:

I've not read this one yet, but I'm just popping in to say your title literally made me go "Wut." when I saw it.

So now it becomes Lyrical Magical Pony Girl Ditzy Doo.

Well, it is a universe where there's a lot of befriending, using both definitions of the word.

7153894 With shiny beams of super-powered magic even, so that fits. Also the defeat equals friendship mechanic. But Ditzy needs an Inteligent Device, probably a regenerating muffin called Self-raising Heart. So you have a magical focus and a handy snack all in one.

7153890 Don't you mean LYRAcal?

*grins* Very intriguing. Almost makes me wonder seeing how others cope would be.

What a delightfully surreal story.

I really like your take on Ditzy Doo! It's fresh!

I wonder how that first Fluttershy reacted to having Ditzy pop into the world and then disappear... And how Twilight would react to that news...

Will Twilight remember enough of Discord talking to figure out that Pinkie's teleportation involves wavefunctions??

Is she gonna run checks on her Human-verse for magic problems?

"I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to—"

What's the song?

... Hurling in the Inter-versal space wouldn't have been pretty... And I really don't want to speculate more about it...



within themselves(.)

"Yes. Probably." Maybe.

Is the 'Maybe' supposed to be part of the speech as well?

we (were) overdue.

Fluttershy sure was interested in them teats. :trixieshiftright:

Interesting bit with Ditzy breaking Pinkie's cartoon physics.

A seventeenth arm reached towards Ditzy. Something told her she shouldn't think too hard about where it was coming from.

Because it was coming from where Sunset's labia should have been.


Fluttershy sure was interested in them teats. :trixieshiftright:

Ditzy represented a species Fluttershy had never met before, and thus Shy wanted to learn all she could about that species. Especially if Ditzy could answer the questions Twilight had never been able to because of being too busy saving worlds to research human anatomy.

That's Shy's story and she's sticking to it.

Yes. All the yes.

One day I found a multiverse in my pajamas.
How it got in my pajamas, I don't know.
And it was strangely filled with lots of tiny horses.
And this weird thing with mismatched limbs was there as well.
And it shoved my through the real of time and space,
Which was not very comfortable at all.
I can't seem to think of any more fun lyrics,
So I'll just leave it here before I go too far.

I'd really like to see this Ditzy meet one or both of these Fluttershy again.

Yeah, she's got no chance.

That was just delightfully fun, and my favorite bit had to be when Ditzy screwed up Pinkie's fast travel. Well, that and Discord, but I'm always a sucker for well written Discord.

Corrections offered without malice.

I figured we overdue.


trying to complement me,


You probably have my favorite versions of ditzy on this site. I dont think ive seen anyone make her seem like such an accidental badass ever.
