Featured Sci-Fi Story: "Equus Metamorphosis" ( http://bit.ly/1YnanMR )

E
Source

Tirek is on the rampage, relentlessly stalking Princess Twilight Sparkle to complete his takeover of Equestria. Doctor Whooves manages to shelter several ponies, who decide to hide in Golden Oaks Library, only to find themselves within the tree moments before it is destroyed. This is where the Doctor has been hiding his T.A.R.D.I.S. all along, and the tree ship sends them back in time.

Now they have to find out what purpose they've been sent back for, and hopefully not change history in the process. Some ponies have different plans, however...

Hahahahah! This was an absolutely fabulous read! A bit jumpy and rushed in some areas of dialogue but owell. Can't believe you wrote this in a n hour, well done sir!

Pretty good man, but you really need to pace yourself and maybe explain things in a bit more detail. You're basically throwing stuff at our faces and expecting us to accept it. Otherwise though, it's a good story

Oh thank you! *hugs* I'm really glad you like it! It literally just came to me before I started writing. Before that, I had this story idea about Maud in a Quentin Tarantino movie setting, but I couldn't seem to make it work in my mind, so I went with this instead!

Stay tuned for more awesome! I'm writing a 4th chapter to the my sci-fi story tonight called "Equus Metamorphosis" :)

7305564

Ah that is a very good point! I must be careful not to be TOO Doctor Who with the plot style (Which is very much throw everything in and hope the audience keeps up), since we're dealing with writing here. Gotta be honest though: I was pacing this story the same way the Doctor Who episodes are paced. But I do need to slow down now. Thanks for pointing that out! And thank you for reading :)

7305573

I get what you're saying. Doctor Who is VERY much throwing things in peoples' faces, but yes, we ARE talking about writing. It's always good to stretch out some detail in a paragraph. A paragraph of detail could very well be only a few seconds in real time, but thats still a paragraph more that readers (like me) can read.

7305583

Then better pacing and more detail it shall be! I will slow down next time. I was too worried about the timing of "Tirek is gonna kill them all if they don't hurry" not realizing that I need to treat this like writing, where time can stop, fast forward and rewind at will :P

And thank you for the watch! :D *hugs*

7305671

No problem man. Remember, wibbly wobbly timey wimey right? You're actually doing very well. Also, I have a story in mind that I'm still making the first chapter of, which will be long. Watch out for it, will you?


Some wise words of wisdom from 12:

"Don't be lasagna." :twilightsmile:

7305681

Thank you! And if you PM me when you write your story, I'll be able to check it out! I have a huge backlog on my journal/blog watching O.o

I will NOT be lasagna! :P I guarantee it :D

7305684

Will do!

If you think about it, the Doctor's speech about time in "Blink" describes writing very well.

"From a non-linear non-subjective point of view, it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey shtuff."


:derpyderp2::derpyderp2::derpyderp2:

Now that is an interesting premise... I am certainly hooked.
For the Doctor and the 4 others, maintaining the past will sure be hard with a future princess who has the power of 4 alicorns in her...
I can't wait for the next part!

A little fast, but that may just be me. Anyways, i'm gonna track this one. Don't think I've read a doc. Whooves story before surprisingly.

7305819

Oh after that little twist, it's gonna get even better!

And thank you for faving this story! *hugs* Your support rocks!

7306371

Thank you for checking it out! I was talking with another reader that the action reads quite fast, though I'm pretty sure the reason is not only that I paced it like a Doctor Who episode, but that I have five characters to work with at most times.

I haven't seen a Doctor Whooves story on the front page in a while. I kinda wanna read one myself.

Thanks again!

If you haven't yet, you should definitely try these ones : Number 12, Doctor Whooves - The Series: Episode One - The Pinkie Conundrum, Doctor Whooves - A Hearth's Warming Tale, Doctor Whooves - The Series: Episode Two - Game of Stones, Doctor Whooves - The Series : Episode Three - Along Came A Spider. They aren't just great fanfics, they are treasures.
Sadly the original author has more or less left his unfinished sequel to take dust, and the other sequels' author has been slowed down by many issues for years...

7307460

Oh wow! Thank you so much! Yay! :D

A very great chapter can't wait to read more.

7307833

Thank you! Things are heating up! We'll see what happens to the Doctor and pals in the next installment!

7307875 just no derpy. :fluttershysad:

7307921

Well not yettttt. :P They could meet her literally ANYWHERE! :D

She stared off into the distance as the thunder and lightning grew in intensity. That means I could face Tirek right now, in Tartarus, and he wouldn’t be able to stop me…

Hopefully, Bookhorse isn't considering murder.

Knowing where stories with The Good(?) Doctor generally lead, however, somebody's probably going to die, and/or be severely injured, at some point.

Edit: Does Valve Logic apply to this, where looking into the eyes of one's self from another point in time ends up obliterating time itself? Probably not, but I'm still curious.

Aren't you forgetting the "A" "R"

7308092

We'll see what rests within the mind of Bookhorse soon enough. Her intentions shall be revealed!

You are right to assume that the Doctor's adventures often end in disaster for someone, or something, or somewhere. Usually London. :P

Thanks for the fav, too! *hugs*

7308230

You mean the "And Relative" part of the T.A.R.D.I.S.'s adventure's equation? I could've sworn that any sort of time-travel touched upon that...You'll have to be more specific :P

My guess for next chapters is, the Doctor, Cherilee, Sweetie Drops and Lyra will have the hard task to catch a superpowered alicorn on the loose...

7309068

That...is a reasonable assumption :P

Is this fanfic still alive?
