"That's how we got Majin, the anthropomorphic personification of Depravity. But he's like Pratchett's Death, where he's wholesome and caring." —RBDash47

If there's anything Rainbow Dash likes more than a good prank, it's being told that she's good at pranking. So when Princesses Celestia and Luna show up at her front door to tell her just that, she is delighted and not suspicious in the very least.

This'll end great. Just you watch.

7490557 Pretty much, yeah.:twilightsmile:

Not bad.

Though I always thought Disco Moon was just the pet name for Discord X Nightmare Moon shippers.

7490617 I mean, I guess it can be, but I always assumed that was DiscoMoon.

Disco Moon is a devilish entity of pure funk. The space makes all the difference.

7490619

In space, everybody can hear you groove.

7490633 I'll groove your space.

Well, if nothing else, it's good to see that Dash learned the ultimate prank; don't actually prank them, just tell them you're going to and drive them completely insane as they wait for it. Honestly, it's the biggest kind of psychological torture there is, since they're going to be horrified as they wait to be pranked by someone.

7490685 My thoughts as well,:ajsmug:

Pompadour-Twilight

Alright, given the fact how Celestia and Luna melted Rainbow Dash's refrigerator a few scenes earlier, I certainly wasn't expecting that. :twilightsheepish:

7490729 Nobody expects Pompadour-Twilight.

7490732 Just like the Spanish Inquisition. :rainbowderp:

7490734 Coincidence?

I think not.:trixieshiftright:

Rainbow’s trophy case..

DOUBLE PERIOD!

she was gone..

AND AGAIN!

Also, Pompadour-Twilight reminded me of Babar. Anyone remember Babar?

Majin Syeekoh

7490795 I'm so sorry that I missed those.:fluttershysad:

And barely. I was really young the last time I read a Babar book.

7490800 Nah, mate, I'm talking about the animated series.

Majin Syeekoh

7490807 Shit.

I remember like, flashes of images from that. Also really young.

7490810 There was an episode where a psychotic robot tried to feed their monkey manservant into a machine meant to disassemble robots into their component parts.

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7490813 That's, um...

You know, for kids!

This reminds me of a skit from Babylon 5.

Garibaldi: Think they'll ever find that transmitter you slipped G'kar?
Sinclair: No. Because there isn't one.
Garibaldi: What?
Sinclair: I lied. If I had put one in, sooner or later, they would have found it. This way, they'll keep looking.
Garibaldi: Commander, do you have any idea of the tests they'll put him through? The things they'll do to him, looking for a transmitter that isn't there?
Sinclair: Yes. Come on.
Garibaldi: There are some days I love this job.

7490826 To be fair, this is the 2000s revitalization of the series I'm talking about, and the early 2000s were not a great time for many things.

Majin Syeekoh

7490836 Oh god, I think one of the few good cartoons from the early 2000s was Justice League, ironically, considering the general tone the recent DC movies have taken.

7490846 You mean the tone of 'just do Batman, oh god, we haven't actually marketed any character other than Batman since the 90s, we're blind to this overspecialization and think the only way to make Superman marketable is to make him dark and brooding and a barely-restrained lunatic sociopath'? Or the tone of 'Guardians of Galaxy made bank, did we ever bother making any tier-below-Justice-League superteams'?

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7490852 More of the former, a little less on the latter. I heard Suicide Squad was decent despite initial critical reception.

They should really do a Teen Titans movie, though. That might make them some green.

7490855 WHY IS AQUAMAN COVERED IN BLACK MAKEUP? WHAT PURPOSE DOES IT SERVE?

But yeah, Teen Titans would win.

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7490859 Iunno, I have faith in Aquaman.

The character tends to shine in more serious takes of him for some reason.

7490862 But he looks so silly and edgelord!

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7490863 The thing about Aquaman, though, is that he has such an inherently silly superpower skillset that the edgelord thing kind of works for him, you know what I mean?

He's like a sea life based Fluttershy. That can punch really hard. You can either go full ham or full edge, and animated DC has done well in both directions. Let's just hope the movie does as well.

7490869 Superman can punch you. Batman can think about the most optimal way to punch you.

Aquaman can summon Cthulhu, have a round of drinks with him, and then the big guy will step on you.

But pardon me if I have no faith in the supposed DC Cinematic Universe.

Majin Syeekoh

7490877 No, I understand your suspicion completely.

I just like to have optimism in the future. Makes my day go better.

7490879 I prefer to be optimistic about stuff I'll actually pay money for.

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7490883 That's a good one.

I'll have to remember that line.

You know, for some reason, this really reminded me of the works of Margaret Mitchell*... Please don't kill me!

In all seriousness, this was fun! I just hope Tank got his lettuce—it seemed to get a little (understandably) forgotten with the arrival of Pompadour-Twilight.

*Incidentally, I did actually check the whole piece on I Write Like just to make sure, but if you go with just the first ten paragraphs or so it gave Joyce so well done on that?

Luna walked up to Rainbow Dash. “You are performing an unprecedented service for your nation,” she said before flying off herself.

I expect that this is perfectly true - I've certainly never served my nation by lending my fridge to a princess.

And Rainbow's final prank reminds me of an episode of MASH, where BJ pramked Hawkeye by getting him to spend the night trying to keep himself awake in the middle of the compound sorrounded by a jury-rigged barbed wire fence in an attempt to not get pranked.

7490990 The only things protecting your life right now are the Atlantic Ocean and Ireland.:ajbemused:

Now that that's out of the way, I'm glad that you enjoyed it!:twilightsmile:

I'd like to think Tank got his lettuce, too. It would certainly make for a happier ending, but pompadour-Twilight does have that kind of mesmerizing effect on people, so who knows in the end?

Majin Syeekoh

7491000 And that is exactly what Luna meant.:trollestia:

This is mysterious. Big question is, if there is actually any timeline where Dash rainbows the moon. I'd assume there isn't, because Twilight would check everything before doing time-travel, and she would look sad if she was going to disappear with her timeline because she changes the past, or, in the case if changing past doesn't change her timeline, time travel would not do anything and so she wouldn't have done it.
And if there isn't, only Rainbow Dash herself could have sent Twilight.
Did I miss something? Did Rainbow prank herself with time travel? That's great if she did.

7491028 I'll leave it open to your personal interpretation.

It's 5 am and I haven't been able to sleep yet. It's too early/late for me to engage in that level of thought.

Need more Disco Smith. If you know what I mean.

Majin Syeekoh

7491445 Unfortunately, I know exactly what you mean.:pinkiesick:

Do you really want to see how they'd tessereact to another prank?

Really? Geometry humor? That's how far we've fallen? Who's responsible for this?

Majin Syeekoh
Story Approver

7491653 You have no idea how happy it makes me that you caught that.

7491048 it's like... If pompadour Twilight disappeared then, something really bad must have happened for her to save Equestria by eliminating her timeline.

"Anytime, still-alive-Rainbow Dash!" pompadour-Twilight said with a smile, before her horn flashed

in this case becomes an intense tragic moment.
"Twilight disappeared into nothing, all sad, but smiling so that Dash wouldn't get an idea to bring her deadly Equestria of disco and blood to reality to save her from disappearing. She knew she was doomed, there was no escape from down that timeline of angsty ponies wearing smiles and party clothes, with harmony irreversibly broken by the pranks, not even with Starswirl's spell. She was doomed now as time spell was ending. Rainbow was still alive, that's what made her want to smile, she realized..."
Sorry

Starlight probably had evacuated through before it got bad. She can. In fact, if she ever disappears, ponies should go alert for something bad happening. Why would she evacuate alone, though... who knows...

7491663 No one wants to live in a world where Funk is the only law.

7491445 also, why not Disco Dash - that unusual song from MLP G3 :pinkiecrazy:

"Tessereact"

Thanos would not be laughing. I am, though!

7490685 Reminds me of that episode of Drake & Josh.
But now I see why it's a prank! Danke!

7492106
It's a pretty extreme thing to do, but it pays off really well since their own paranoia does them in for you.

7492108 Why bother setting up the prank when you can just tell them that you will and break them? It's the prank of pranks!

*Sigh*

Dash, Dash, Dash... this is why you specify that something being borrowed be returned in proper working order. It's a bit more difficult to slip out of that one.

7491028

As to the time issue, remember - in the original time travel plot, the time spell created a closed loop. I imagine that present-Twi was paying as much attention as she could to everything, and I do mean everything, that Pompadour-Twi was saying and doing. Thus allowing her to appropriately gear herself up, go back, and re-create the scene in order to fill out the plothole in the timestream. Meaning no, there probably wasn't ever an actual timeline in which Dash did that.

More tesseracts and disco please! I lived in that era! :pinkiecrazy:

The ending reminds me of an episode of MASH where BJ Hunnicut pulled a similar trick on Hawkeye. Fun stuff, and good memories.
