Lulz.

Otherwise, good.

FIRST COMMENT AS I AM ACTUALLY FIRST :D

I don't always like crossovers, but when I do it's because nostalgia. You managed to hit every nail on the head as far as in-character dialogue and actions goes.

If you'll excuse me I'm going to go lament the lack of new Homestar stuff.

[youtube=Jpgy21r_dRE]

I'm putting this one on my main page so that it gets more views!

Read the whole thing aloud, didn't regret an instant. I'd blah about it being inaccessible to anyone who isn't a fan of either thing but right now I simply DO NOT care because I couldn't keep a straight face through the whole thing. Magic.

Also you nailed Strong Bad's dialogue. NAILED.

Wow, yeah, I agree with the commissar. That was an impressive imitation of the Chaps Bros style. I could practically hear Strong Bad's voice saying "In faaaact..." followed by da geddup noise, it's such a classic transition to the "middle part' of the email. Maybe the Chaps Brethren should hire you as a ghost writer since they're apparently too busy having, you know, actual LIVES and raising FAMILIES to update their internet cartoon website, *grumblecakes grumblecakes*

That's too awesome to exist. And yet it does. Excellent work.

Excellent! Well done good... person! A thup from me, to be sure.

That was different. :rainbowhuh:

If you'd asked me yesterday to think up a hundred possible crossover sources, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have come up with Homestar Runner.

Positively ingenious, I must say.

Perfectly done! I must admit, I was surprised at how well you captured the essence of Strong Bad! Hmm... I'll bet that's marketable!

I wonder how people in the world of Homestar thought Strong Bad's actions were all some kind of joke? :rainbowlaugh:

This is fantastic and perfectly in character. Nice short story that was definitely worth the read. You deserve a like and favorite, good author! :pinkiehappy:

I love it. Simply amazing.

I'm down with a good lulzie.

803428
Hope this tides you over until they return. Let's hope!

803563
Thanks for that! Also, Twilight is still cute when she does that.

803570
Strong Bad approves of your comment. Now send him an e-mail!

803582
I just want some of those grumblecakes~
Let's raise the grumblestakes~

Let's hope that once their little guy is old enough, they'll return.

803584
The awesomeness makes its existence possible. Well, and a dash of rainbows.:facehoof:

803609
:yay:

803639
:scootangel:

803644
A thup? What am I going to do with a thup? Maybe Strong Sad could use a good thup.:rainbowwild:

803671
Honestly, I was surprised no one else has tried this before me. All I found was a Marzipan Answering Machine parody. Which I'm going to read like a boss.

803683
Thanks! I was worried that another, more talented author would get to it first.

803771
I actually had a scene where Pinkie meets Strong Bad while he's scamming his friends, but it just didn't fit well. The paper took up her slack. :twistnerd:

803896
Woo Hoo! Thanks!

803916
Perhaps it's marketable, but he'd likely sue the pants off me. And then just settle out of court.

803980
Who knows? Some of the Homestar Runner characters aren't what you'd call... perceptive.

804033
Thank you! I'm glad you found this enjoyable!

804147
Thanks! I was worried that there wouldn't be a large enough Homestar Runner fanbase to get the jokes.

Thank you all for commenting! It's been a blast to see so many enjoying this silly story.

Knows next to nothing about Homestar. Still enjoyed the crossover. :moustache: Very nicely done.

Bwuahahaha, YES!

Good ol' Homestar Runner & Strong Bad. :pinkiehappy:

Dear Strong Bad,

My friend Dashie wanted me to ask you something. How do you type with boxing gloves on your hooves? Whatever that means...

Your Friend,
Pinkie Pie

P.S. If you come to Ponyville, I can guarantee a super-dooper-looper party with cake and cookies and Pin the Tail on the Pony! :pinkiehappy:

All of my yes.

I'm also a bit surprised it hasn't been done before. I guess that's just how Internet stuff goes, though. What was insanely popular 10 years ago is more or less dead today. Kudos for having the strangest fic I've read today which wasn't also terrible.

804433
That means I did my job to at least set the stage for what was going on. Awesome!

805735
They are a funny pair. No doubt!

805860
Dear Diana,

I'll only answer your question if you answer mine.

How do ponies carry things in their hooves? I mean, seriously.

Your Phoney,
Strong Bad

P.S. If your party has 88 hot girls there, I will be all up ons!

806211
And all of mine, as well!

806599
Thanks! I usually don't write such silly stuff, but it seems I lucked out with this one.

Once again, thank you all for commenting and enjoying!

Wow. That was excellent. I really could hear everything Strong Bad said in his voice. And the Chairscoot! :rainbowlaugh:

Very amusing, you really nailed this. :rainbowlaugh:

As the other commentors have stated, you did an excellent job with this! You got the character speaking styles and overall plot style of a SBemail down perfectly and the added 'sound effects' made the reading immersion even better. I don't know if it would be possible to pull off such a clean crossover if the fans of the two properties in question weren't as fanatical as they are.

812192
Chairscoot is best Geddup Noise!

821524
Thank you! I certainly wasn't sure how this would turn out when I started.

832499
The sound effects were the most worrisome since the SBmails are so visually necessary to get most of the jokes. There's some things that just don't translate well to the written word. But, I'm glad that everyone thinks I nailed it!

Dear Twilight,
How do you type with hooves on?
-Your best friend,
Trevor


Beautiful man. I like it. :pinkiehappy:

Wow... My brain read that in 100% dead on homestar runner voices. It's like my auditory gland somehow got sucked all the way back to 2002. ...Not sure quite how I feel about that. Still, a wonderful read that will likely inspire me to waste several hours later today in a depths of flash based Internet nostalgia.

Oh yeah I totally did forget to favorite and comment here when I first read it. Same as everyone else, I'm basically just going to say you captured the Brothers Chaps style perfectly, and I was able to envision it as if it actually were a new update on site. If only~ Anyways, I really should stop procrastinating on reading the rest of your stuff, but... procrastinating is really easy.

845345
Dear Strong Bad,

Typing? Have you seen our typewriters? We have the best available! Only three keys! You need over 26 just to spell your name right. Top that!

Sincerely,
Twilightlicious

862050
Thanks!

885038
What better way to spend your time? I personally love the random button on the site and just let it run in the background while I do whatever. Good times.

887155
Why, thank you! I'm really floored by how well this story was received. There are more fans of this internet show than I was expecting.

Ugh, don't get me started on procrastination. I could have so much stuff done now if I just put away the distractions. They're just so... distracting.

Thank you all for commenting and enjoying my work!

Oh, how I miss Strong Bad and HR in general:fluttershysad: I can't believe I never thought of this idea. It makes so much sense. And Strong Bad is just spot on perfect. Major kudos, man.

This is hilarious. Brings me back to my childhood. Kudos to you, man.

There needs to be a Trogdor fic...

914649
I miss new Homestar Runner stuff too. That's partially why I came up with this idea, just to have a little more Strong Bad in my life. Judging from the response, I think it worked! :pinkiehappy:

954239
I'm not sure how I would work Trogdor in, especially since this is a one-shot. Though I suddenly have this image of Fluttershy staring down the Burninator in my head...:rainbowderp:

Thanks for the comments! I'm so glad so many people found this enjoyable!

That was hilarious! Haven't seen any Strong Bad emails for a while, so this was great!

I can't say it any better than the rest already have. As an avid fan of HSR back in the day, this was utterly flawless. I'm just glad I stumbled on this fic! You've earned a follower, easily.

954239
Why, should such a thing occur, do I have a very vivid mental picture of Discord confronting Trogdor about his shoddy impersonation? :derpyderp1:

959704
Thanks! I've been missing new emails too and wanted to try to fill the void by making my own. Glad you found it enjoyable!

1263536
Thank you! I'm just pleased as bunch that this came out and met readers' expectations.

As a bonus, here's my interpretation of a scene with Trogdor and Discord:

Trogdor: Puny spirit! I am the Burninator! I've torched all the thatched-roof cottages!

Discord: Yeah, but can you make them float upside down?

:pinkiehappy:

Oh, man, I LOVE Homestar Runner, and this just made my day. You kept Strong Bad totally in character. Kudos to you! =)

2541805
Glad you found this enjoyable! Hope the rest of your day goes just as well!

Three years. Never forget.
845345
Trevor? You're back? What happened? We thought they got you!

One of the best crossovers I've read on here for a while. I love Strong Bad and really miss him; hopefully the Brothers Chaps get to making a new one someday.

Have a like and a favorite.

I was reliving my childhood and I wondered, "Hm, I wonder if there's a pony crossover with this," and poof, here I am! Great work!

4004950
Heh, that's pretty much the thought process that went through my head just before I wrote this.

Also, if you're interested in more Homestar Runner hijinx, here's Twilight's Answering Machine. :pinkiegasp:

Dear Princess Celestia,

Princess? Princess? What, was the 'Queen' upgrade out of your price range? You have this entire country that pretty much worships you and you still couldn't convince them to shell over some extra tax money for the bling necessary to pull that off? I mean, the of Town managed to get 'King' status and the closest thing we have to an economy is Bubs' Concession Stand.

Seriously, if a semi-senile glutton can get people to call him 'King,' it couldn't be that hard to tack 'Queen' onto your name and have it stick.

Sincerely yours,

Strong (we have real royalty) Bad

Love it. :D

Nailed it! :rainbowlaugh:

If it's okay, there's a dramatic reading of your story.

Looks like your hard work paid off there, good job.:twilightsmile:

6417112
Heh. Yeah, PresentPerfect notified me of it. Really good voice work!

Though I agree with PresentPerfect's review in that it's weird having some parts of the narration spoken allowed, particularly the spots where I describe Strong Bad typing on his keyboard (with boxing gloves on!).
