This story is a sequel to Windfall

A brilliant mind discovers a problem in search of a solution, which leads to inspiration, which leads to invention, which leads to a technological/magical advance that will in time forever change Equestria.

Sequel to Windfall, set three years after the events in that story.

Chapters (44)

IT'S HEEEEEERE! Words cannot express how wonderful this story is.

Oh wow! This is so great!:pinkiegasp:

(Except I saw that ol' biopic of Howard Hughes the other day, and now I see Twilight as Hughes...:twilightoops:)

It's easier for me to track and comment on a story here. I know I'll have some comments in later chapters.

Praise Celestia, it's finally here!!:yay:
Time to read it again:moustache:

Mmm, that's some good thaumobabble.

I've been reading every new chapter of this on dA, great to see it here as well :pinkiehappy: :yay: :raritystarry: :derpytongue2:

Earth and Sky came to FiMFiction.net? HECK YES! I am going to reread the chapters as I go, here!

Whether or not Applejack tries the mechanical wings, I have no idea. It's a complete toss-up. Any inputs on this comment?
oh, and FIRST!!!!!!!!

Earth and Sky? YAAAAAAAY!! <kermit flail>

I like this. I like this a lot. The characters who've changed less are captured beautifully, I love what you've done with Applebloom (didn't get to see too much of Sweetie Belle yet, but I look forwards to that and any appearances by Scootaloo), and the whole idea is great. I really like how you had Twilight catch the thought in measures, rather than all at once, too.

Write on!:twilightsmile:

The daaaw is strong within this one!:eeyup:

Ummm...I have a fic called Earth and Sky.


Ahh, the introduction of Pip Squeak in the role that single handedly turned him into one of my favorite background ponies.

Woo! Been reading this on DA

So much diabeetus inducing adorableness :yay:


Woo-hoo! Good to see this on FimFiction at last!

YAY, Earth and Sky on FIMFiction! I faithfully follow this one on dA, and can't wait for the next chapter! :pinkiehappy:

"What color are you tasting right now?"

Magic in a nutshell, folks.

The eldest of the Apple sisters could scarcely believe that such sweet, velvet soft tones could carry such implicit threat.


Implicit means it's implied; explicit means it's outright said.

I have to admit I'm most excited about the part where Rarity and Twilight get to be business moguls. :raritystarry:

Congrats on getting to be one of the featured stories!

Haha, I only just started reading this earlier today, reached chapter seven, and was all "darn, I wish there was more of this to read!" Couple hours later, these two new chapters pop up. Feels awesome!

This story is great and I eagerly await more!

Macintosh is adorable as a dad.

It's up to chapter 16 on DA if you care to check it out there. Otherwise, I'll be uploading a couple chapters here every day 'til it's caught up, then I'll upload new chapters to both as they happen. :ajsmug::raritywink::twilightsmile:


What Twilight's doing right now is the sort of thing one of the characters from MY story does for a living!!! I'm glad to see that it's a feasible profession to more than one person. :D Great story, by the way. I'm enjoying this immensely. :yay:

I LOVE fluttershy's rant, scolding Rainbow about how Pinkie cries herself to sleep at night because she can't play in the clouds with her foals and how her own foals have to wonder why their daddy can't join them the way mommy can. :raritycry: The D'aw has been doubled!

What are you, a dictionary? :unsuresweetie::raritywink:

I know what implicit means, I chose that word because while I agree that Fluttershy was explicitly threatening Applejack, the undertone in her gentle, sweet voice threatened oh so much more. You do NOT mess around where Fluttershy's kids are concerned. :flutterrage:

Sorry if it was unclear, tho. Thanks for reading! :twilightsmile::pinkiehappy::raritystarry:

Apple Bloom and Pip are such an adorable pair in this.

I... must have missed this chapter when it was on deviantart, cuz I know I didn't read Dash's reaction to the wings.

THANK YOU Warren Hatch for hearing me and linking this in a comment :pinkiehappy::raritystarry::heart::raritystarry::pinkiehappy:

S'possible. I've had a continuing problem with derped links when I submit these chapters to EQD. :derpytongue2:
Thanks for reading! :pinkiehappy:

I love this chapter. The way Rarity plays all four of them is just beautiful.

Finally! You've finally decided to upload your story onto on of the biggest Brony fan fic sites.

I love your stories, but "Windfall" and "Earth and Sky" are by far my favorites. With the "Screwball" trilogy coming in close at second. By the way, you are amazing.
And since i forgot to comment on the previous chapters, *ahem* :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:
That is all.
(One Pinkie Pie for each chapter by the way).

That " stallion talk " Big Mac gave was the funniest thing I've read all day. :rainbowlaugh:

I said this once and I shall say it again:

Oh, Applebloom....
Oh, Big Mac...
Oblivious Pip is really funny.
And Soarin' is a developing character and this is good.

This is some good stuff.

Really preferred the techno-innovation storyline. Liked it almost as much as I detest matchmaking.

Favorite chapter yet.

Applebloom, Big Mac, and Pip are all just fantastic.

"Good heavens, Miss Apple Bloom, you're beautiful!" Swing and a hit!

Oh Rarity, never change. :raritywink:



Oh, Rarity:raritystarry:

I crack up a little EVERY TIME Fluttershy calls Big Mac "Big Bunny":rainbowlaugh:

I love this chapter! The mental image of watching the princesses desperately try not to bust up laughing while everyone else is trying so hard to be dignified and presentable is hysterical.:derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2:
