Don't believe everything that you're told. Question everything, believe nothing. The first moon landing that you learned about in school was all lies, the reality of the matter is very different...

(I can not stress enough the fact that this is [obviously] set in an Alternate Universe.)

((On Hiatus until further notice - I will not abandon this, I just need some time to brainstorm! I Pinkie-Promise!))

I haven't even read the story yet, but the cover picture....that was worth visiting this page.

I've got a hunch this story will be just as good.

Damn it... Stop reading my MIND! I totally had this EXACT idea like a week ago...

Good job, my only complaint is I wish it was more than a one-shot.

This looks interesting, but it's 6:23 AM and I woke up at 11:00 AM... How am I still awake?
I shall read this in the morning! Or afternoon...

Someone needs to write a follow up for this. Hell, it might even be me who writes it.

That was rather enjoyable. The language at parts was a little iffy but otherwise it was great!

Not the best it could be. I'm not sure how to say it other then it could be 'more' and just leave it at that.

Would certainly be worth reading if you continue it though.

Just...Just...Just TAKE IT ALL! TAKE ALL MY LIKES! TAKE ALL MY FAVORITES! EVEN TAKE MY MOUSTACHE! HERE! TAKE IT! :moustache:

Honestly, really good fic!

Well, I just got some new software that's called Dragon dictate. I'm actually using it right now to type out this comment, which makes writing a lot easier, and I need to test it more extensively on something. I will put some thought into it after brainstorming for a little, but honestly at the moment I'm out of ideas, and I'm kind of tired - being up all night tends to do that.

There were a couple of errors, like Micheal Collins didnt actually go on the moons surface, or that the quote Neil said was "one small step for a man"

I laugh at the description, school didn't tell me shit about the moon landing (Apollo 11 is assumed to be the mentioned one). Too bad for them I taught myself.

Good show! I came for the picture stayed for the plot.

I enjoyed the story, but I feel a little offended that you made Neil sound so nervous at the beginning. The way the opening SHOULD have gone would be:

Ten... :yay:Yeah!
Nine... :yay:Hell yeah!
Eight... :yay:Fuck yeah!
...
...
...
Lift off... :flutterrage:WOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Maybe you could show the debriefing of all four travelers on the space craft? (I can just picture Luna sitting happy as can be on the receiving end of an interview room simply because she would have people to talk to and take an interest in her.)

Yes.
All of my yes.

Liked and faved.

Stuff I'm too lazy to explain:
>he still fells it nonetheless.
>Neil rolls his eyes. “It isn’t [if]that bad.”
>which he was only doing to look busy
>I’m only gonna’ say this once, okay?
>as a figure makes it’s self clear

You seem to have a problem with tenses:
>Neil looks around and realizes that he was alone
>Its coat is a dark blue that seemed to melt into the darkness
>The metal floor embraced Neil’s forehead as the rest of him lightly floats in the air

>and an even bigger one when he was woken up

807614 Not sure if slow clapper, or spam…

Slow clapper.
This story was genius.

811131 I have no idea what that meme is referring to, due to my lack of text vocabulary.

811207
No I am not fucking kidding you.

811530 Can you tell me what IKR means, though?

810647 The issues with the tenses would be because the story was initially in the past tense, but I decided to change it to present tense because I thought it made the story feel more authentic, which it really needs because it's actually just a blatant slap in the face to the entire Apollo 11 mission, and the crew members. I'm certain that Buzz isn't a prick, and that Neil wasn't as terrified at liftoff.

Thanks for the corrections.

813510 i just did, it was just 11pm, and i had school the next day and had to wake up at 630am :twilightsmile:, loved it btw

813530 good *rubs hands together* goooooooooooood...:pinkiecrazy:

This story is AMAZING!!!


Oh, and question for Buzz: "What was on you're mind when you first saw Luna come into the lander?"

821556
I imagine it was something like, "what the hell did they put in the ration packs?"

I can imagine it least one ass asking why Luna isn't in a kitchen... or a ranch.

Personally, I'm awaiting the reaction to the movie 'The invasion of Space Ponies from Outer Space.'

Question for Luna: "Are you a Communist?"

Question for Luna: How did you know Buzz was a human, or for that matter what humans were?

Question for Luna, did you ever celebrate your birthday with skippy the rock???

Question for Luna: Do you have a massive fortress hidden on the dark side of the Moon?

Question for Luna: Why are there stars in your mane? Is it a window into space, or... does it actually CONTAIN space? Is all of existence, lifeforms included, comprised of the strands of your hair? That's the "String Theory," right?

MOON ROCK MOON ROCK!
wondered if she ever sent comets at earth just fo funziez

Houston must have known about Luna, how else could they have the fuel allowances to make that possible?

noticed it in the updates section. Looks pretty interesting :moustache:

*favorite*

I'm already delirious from the overdose of awesome that your story just pushed into my veins.
This is coming along really well. Your narrative style is interesting, if occasionally a bit... choppy isn't the right word, but it doesn't always flow as well as it could.
Nonetheless, that barely even caught my attention as I was pulled into this strange story with LEDS which, while existing at the time of the first moon landings, were not very common until at least a decade or two later due to their incredibly short life span when they were first introduced.

And this story was just favd

"Sorry for taking an entire week to get this done" that was a week? god I really have to do more stuff in my free time, it felt like a month!

Where is Celestia? If Luna Survived on the moon did Celestia just die out?

Has anyone seen the asdfmovies on youtube? Remember - I think, idk - someone the moon bear??

/Astronauts used to zero-g
/Trained extensively how to use shuttle
/They were geniuses not stoned hippies
/Took four days to get to moon
/Inaccuracies makes me rage so hard.
/Still good story
/Damn you
