This story is a sequel to Screwball Mio Amoré


Several months ago, a strange little propeller beanie dropped out of the sky and landed in an abandoned field outside Ponyville. The ponies went about their lives, blissfully unaware of what lurked underneath, until today...

3 things I say about this trilogy.

1. Very awesome, glad to have read it.
2. Probably know the answer, but will we ever see more adventures of Screwball? Like side stories?
3. ...did I just get Rick Roll'd?

761834 3.A. (The tan stallion closed his eyes and began rocking the stunned being back and forth. "No! I'm never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around or desert you..." He squeezed tighter, causing the pink and purple creature's swirling eyes to bulge. "Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never tell a lie or hurt you.") Yeah we absolutely got Rick Roll'd.

Oooh, the voices of the mini-chaos-ponyoids... and Buttons and Davenport, with ther boringness turned up to over nine thousand...:rainbowlaugh:

Oh, I just love Screwball; love redeems everything!:pinkiesmile:

Oh: as one more thing, Discord is a silly billy meanie beanie. He made a plan that required him to have some measure of control of chaos? "Oh, I have planned for all contingencies, bwah ha ha!" Really?

Hey, I didn't know you were on FIMFiction too!

Am I the only one who would have found it funnier if Button just had to deal with going Screwball every once in a while?
Maybe if a certain alabaster unicorn stopped being a troll and shared the secrets of "organized chaos," we wouldn't be in this mess, hmm? The trick isn't to stay sane, the trick is to use your insanity for good.

Then again, if we weren't in this mess, we'd have no story. So keep doing what you're doing Warren (can I call you Warren?), because whatever your thought process is, IT WORKS AWESOMELY.

Well, Douglas Adams proved, in defiance of linguistics or mathematics, that a trilogy doesn't have to have three parts. :pinkiehappy:

'This just in. Berry Punch swears off the hard cider after seeing mini ponies. She says that she's, quote,"Sticking to good ol' grape juice from now on." I'm here to say, not likely.

Rick roll. God I hate that song, but here, it works well.

This is what went through my mind during the procession of Screwballs

Poor Berry Punch... not!

761834 Definitely got rolled. :pinkiecrazy:

Wonderful ending. I'm so glad it was happy. Go, Button Stitch!

klaatu, barada nikto
I see what you did there... :pinkiehappy:

I love this series and am glad you decided to upload it to Fimfiction

"Bah weep grag naw weep nini bong" Missed a couple words but still loved it, you are the first I've ever seen use the universal greeting from the original animated Transformers movie from the 80's.
"Klaatu Verata Nikto" Another good one, glad to see the Army of Darkness here as well.

I was waiting and hoping for the incantation from the Phoenix Gate, from the Gargoyles animated serial... slight disappointment, oh well, can't have your cake and eat it too I guess.

Anyway loved the work, I'm especially happy to see somepony embracing Screwball, single quick scene like so many others, but she just hasn't garnered the following that I think she deserves. Thanks again for a good read, this story made my night. Oh, and you made Screwball 20% cooler.:rainbowkiss:

Army of Darkness was referencing "The Day the Earth Stood Still" with "Klaatu Barada Nikto" :twistnerd:

I never really watched Gargoyles so I never encountered the Phoenix Gate thing. You can only reference what you know. :raritywink:

Anyway, thanks for reading. Glad you enjoyed it. :pinkiehappy::raritystarry::twilightsmile:

Excellent ending(?) to the trilogy!

You are officially one of my favorite authors in the fandom. :moustache:

this is probably similar to what the red mare
was going thu.

:rainbowlaugh:classic
I heard this as read that

LOL
Davenport...un-stallion like..
LOL
I swear I heard Timmy's dad's scream
I nearly LOLed out of my seat at that.:rainbowlaugh:

from what little I know about discord that
diatribe sounded just like him.

I half expected him to start laughing evilly
then say "did you like that I'd been rehearsing
for hours"

761876
I caught that too
Did you catch the Zero Wing reference
"what you say princess Luna"
Or kalattu Barrdta NICTO

:rainbowlaugh:I paused myself all three times and LOLed

Yay, transformers reference. Bah weep graw na weep ninny bong.

OKay that ending made everything worth it. Screwballs speech...is a thing of beauty. I may have to see about making a recording of it.

"Well, by now I'm not up to anything except the top of a pedestal..."
That line made me laugh.

I love the role of Discord in all of this; it fits so perfectly, with his trademark blend of style, chaos, and guilt-inducing malice.

DAMMIT, I just got rickrolled by my fanfiction!

Oddly enough, this is only the second time it's ever happened to me. With the amount of fanfic I read, that's actually surprisingly low.

"No bickering". Nice to see they've learned from past mistakes.

You know, this series really feels like it could be an episode of the series proper!

:trixieshiftright: Not sure if too many references or not enough... probably both. :rainbowwild:

And that unexpectedness of a rickroll... hah! :rainbowlaugh:

Well, I assume if you simply toss it into space, It may turn into a black hole. Therefore, the solution is to throw it really really hard so that its gravitational field won't drag it back towards the system.

> "Greep!", "Oople!", "Imsk!", "Ning!", "Gimby!", "Hooba!", "Ootini!", "Mimp!", "Eegee!"

Reminds me "Pop!", "Six!", "Squish!", "A-ah!", "Cicero!", "Lipschitz!":

Read this all, and I just have to say it - your Screwball stories are PERFECT!!! I wanna read more about her! And about Button and her husband too! Screwball and Button Stitch will become friends? Screwball will have special somepony? Will Pinkie Pie and Screwball became best friends or rivals? What about other mane6? And who made "Loser" and painted mustache on Discord's face - Button or Screwball? And where Screwball will live? And how's Button and Davenport's family business going? And if Photofinish come to Ponyville and see Screwball, what would she say? And what Screwball will answer, when CMC asks her about her cutiemark? And what about that poor wyvern from Everfree Forest, how he's doing? And what will think Derpy, when she'll become acquainted with Screwball? What's Button Stitch's favorite meal? And Screwball's? And how's Screwball will integrate in pony society? And what work will she have to earn bits? And woobala teh in rubbam? Wirubala boop weepa? Woot!

And answer me, please - in Ponyville is really NO ONE who liked Screwball's house-painting? If at least one pony like it and don't wash it away from his house - it will be very comforting to Screwball. Maybe she'll become great artist - surrealist or impressionist...

I'm sure some ponies in town considered the paintings interesting enough to keep, but most of it was just plain hard to look at. Clashing colors that would give you a headache and patterns that would make your eyes go crossed. :raritydespair:

This was a rampage of vandalism, not an artistic exercise, and Screwball was painting over everything, including windows and doors and parts of the houses that would never be painted. :duck:

Screwball will find her place in Equestria, but not as a painter. :unsuresweetie:

> Clashing colors that would give you a headache and patterns that would make your eyes go crossed.

In Russia for such things exists slang word "вырвиглаз", which means "tearouteye".

But art of many artists looks like chaotic vandalism, if it's on the wall of the street, not in gallery. Cubism, impressionism, surrealism, abstractionism and such things can't be obvious as art to everyone.

I hope next story will be soon, and i'll know, what place in Equestria society Scruwball will find...

Also, film by Screwball:

*mechanical female voice* Hello-o. Are you still there?.. *beep*

Here's hoping Screwball can keep her appetite under control, or else the beasts of the Everfree Forest are doomed! :pinkiecrazy:

But seriously, this was a fun, sweet, and funny series of stories, and I'm sorely tempted to read the rest of your work right away because of them. You did a great job.

Third read through all three, still love them.

:twilightsmile:

Dammit, you set up this whole series just to rick roll bronies didn't you?
...............:trixieshiftright: Well played sir. Well played indeed.

I think my favorite part of the trilogy is that each feels like it could fit into the length of an episode. Perfect pacing and length.

Wow, this was a blast from the past. I remember these being some of the first fimfics I read before I had an account. A little late, but here's an upvote for all three.

I remember the first ep where he screamed like that. and totoally agree it fits Davenport perfectly.

Great trilogy loved it!!! gota say though Luna is either misinformed or in denial that Screwball ant a creature of chaos anymore though. She just happens to have morals and a bit more structured mind than she use too.

I'm still wrapping my head around Spike being referred to as a "dragonet".
Is that like a male equivalent of "dragonette"?

6976300
-et is a diminutive. Kinda like how a baronet is less than a baron. Or a cygnet is a baby swan. (Which I think was my general inspiration for using the phrase.) Both those associations work well with dragons to me. :twilightsmile:

I'm not quite sure what exactly Discord was trying to say about Button Stitch about being a "plug in reality" and all.
Was he saying that Twilight was wrong in part one and she WAS controlling the chaos?
And I still have no clue what being..."leaky" would mean in that regard.

6978688
Discord set up an "amount" of chaos to be unleashed on Equestria, and placed Button as a block or a barrier so that it wouldn't be unleashed right away, kind of like a plug in the end of a hose stopping the water from coming out. If you walk up to a hose with a plug in the end and pull it out, you get sprayed in the face. This was Discord's plan, with Twilight or Celestia being the ones he planned to "soak". :twilightoops:

The plug itself has no control of when the water is released, it only blocks the flow until someone removes it. Button didn't block all the chaos, she was slightly "leaky", which manifested as her turning into Screwball. This was by design. When she was "cured" of being a plug for the chaos, there was nothing to hold the chaos back. :facehoof:

Perhaps you've never worked or played with a garden hose. Here's a demonstration. If there is a bottle of water or soda nearby, hold it upside down over your head and unscrew the cap. The cap is what Button was, metaphorically. What happens when the cap is removed is what Discord was intending, metaphorically. Now go get some paper towels and clean up, literally. :raritywink::ajsmug:

3430347 You know. If you really want to you could try setting up a colab with Warren if you REALLY want to see it done and have some really good ideas. Or maybe you could work out something with him to write a spin-off.

6978740 Thanks for the reply. It was kind of a unfamiliar situation, if not a complicated one (the part about chaos and reality - not literal hoses). I guess it's for the best pacing that the princesses and Discord don't sit there to explain all of that. Thanks.
