Hold your ground but do not be unkind. (Ponyphonic, "Shy Heart") He/him. Ponyfic Roundup reviews every Wednesday.



Starlight's teleportation skills are becoming very impressive. There's just one little problem: she doesn't seem to be able to go anywhere without coming to a rather sticky end. Okay, not end exactly. But definitely sticky.

The first story in the Custardverse.

Now has a reading by Feral!

Oh. For a bit there I thought Starlight was actually traveling through the Semi-Elemental Plane of Custard with each teleport. I'm ever so slightly disappointed.

Ah well, still a fun bit of randomness.

Get that man to Equestria, pronto!

I'm not Super Trampoline, you know! :derpytongue2: Also, note the lack of a [Comedy] tag.

You're asking for a ban there. :rainbowlaugh:

Anti-custard shampoo broke me up! :D

7655306 Heh, glad to hear it! :pinkiehappy: A quick Google suggests that nobody else has ever used the phrase "anti-custard shampoo", so I have a little claim to fame there! :P

I could not stop giggling!

There's something about custard that's just intrinsically funny. Teleporting into it, doubly so. (In the same way that teatime is doubly an illusion, I suppose, or at least when I'm in odd form...)

Well, you what they say.
When in doubt, blame Discord.

Yay, thanks! And I'm now trying to remember whether Douglas Adams ever made a custard joke. Sadly, I can't. :P

Well, who knows where the Lord of Chaos might be at any one time...? :P

I have done nothing but teleport custard for three days.

Edit: Wait, that's not what you meant.

7656768 Maybe it is what I meant. I have to defer to an egg on this, cracked or otherwise. :rainbowwild:

7655127 that was mildly fascinating.


I'm not Super Trampoline, you know!

As soon as I saw this story title, I was like, This is a good story idea.

7657427 I'm going to put that quote in the description now. :pinkiehappy:

7657713 Which is now on my RiL list. I'll remember whose fault that was.

7657729 Just remember that's xjuggernaughtx's not-very-secret account, so you know it's good.

7657738 That's true. I'm concerned that I know such things.

I'm looking forwards to the expansion of the custard-verse ;)

Like it or not, I think this is the one that's gonna be associated with your name. "Loganberry??... OH! You wrote that story about custard!"

Well, you might be. I'm the one who's going to be lumbered with writing the damn thing! :rainbowlaugh:
I can live with it. I made it through the weekend, and I can't see anyone being more custard-obsessed than that lot!

7655145 Darnit, now i want that ><

7655145 And only now do I realise that was an Order of the Stick reference. Yay once again for Logan's tin ear for pop culture references. :pinkiehappy:

7778334 All I'm saying right now is that this probably won't be the only Custardverse story ever written...

I looked up the strip to make sure I used the right prefix and everything! :raritydespair:

7780136 Ever since this one turned into a UK PonyCon meme (for some reason I still don't understand), I've been semi-committed to writing some sort of a sequel before next year's UKPC. That'll probably be in October, if you want to mark the date in your diary now. :derpytongue2:

(One might appear before then, but don't count on it.)

7862816 So you did! I saw the review as you know, but missed the comment here. So thanks! :twilightsmile:

It's a weird story name but it also sounds like a delicious one too.

7927840 Weird and delicious? Now there's a combination! :pinkiehappy:

7936084 Hehe. Maybe I should have put Opal in the fic! :raritystarry: What's the first weakness, apart from world domination?


That would be CatNip, m8.:twilightsheepish:

Very cute story about teleportation gone wrong. After reading all the "Blink" stories about the darker side of teleporting, it was nice for something cute to cleanse the palate. Er, so to speak.

7981510 Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile: I hadn't really thought of this as a sort of antidote to Blink et al, but it's an appealing idea!

"...diabetes marelitus."

That pun. Wow. Oh, I haven't encountered a pun that hurts that much in quite some time. You wound me. Bravo.

Cute story, if more than a little ridiculous. Poor Starlight, I think even I would get tired of crème brûlée after repeatedly being covered in mustard. Mmm, I need to make some crème brûlée...

8157888 I'm honoured to be the purveyor of such a wounding pun! And thank you (and for the watch, too). There'll be another Custardverse story along... sometime, so watch out. (You can decide for yourself how to take that last bit...)

I thought it was Trixie who had problems teleporting...
Instead it's Starlight who has mustered the custard and is very flustered.

Custard affects magical prowess in strange and as yet not entirely understood ways. :raritywink:

I don't get the pun.

What the hell.

What in the literal hell.

I've been saying this for two years.

Nobody listens.

I’m disappointed she didn’t try teleporting two feet to her left and ended up in custard somehow.

10/10 tho, would ready again

Heh, thanks! Must admit I didn't think of that one. :pinkiehappy:
