I am not a clever pony.


Shining Armor and Twilight Sparkle live an average life in an average home in the most above-average city in Equestria. Growing up in Canterlot they are subject to the inner workings of the government and Princess Celestia. Even though Shining SHOULD be studying, when his little sister asks him to help her with something, how can he refuse? After all, there's only one reasonable course of action at that point: take over Equestria.

one does not simply 'not' do your homework.


Ok, this was a fun read. Love filly twilight! She's too adorable to resist. Especially when she's causing "mayhem" with Shining Armor. Great story!

This. Was. ADORABLE!

Only one chapter??! :fluttercry:

7725568 Unless you're Shining Armor. Then you um... pray that Twilight doesn't come after you for not doing it.

7725955 Yes..... for now. This may or may not have been testing the water for future stories...

7726237 i think you did great


This makes me want a story where Twilight actually does try to take over Equestria. Not in like an Evil way but like Pinky and the Brain where she's only doing it because she thinks she'd do a better job at running things.

“I think so, Moonlight, but where are we going to get one dozen banana-cream pies and an alligator at this time of day?”

I adore you.

7726755 I was wondering if anyone was going to pick up on my reference. :rainbowlaugh:


“Well then, Crimson, are you thinking what I’m thinking?”

“I think so, Moonlight, but where are we going to get one dozen banana-cream pies and an alligator at this time of day?”


Way to brighten my day. I feel sad for anyone who doesn't get it.

Kids pretending to be eeevil are just too adoracute.

7726487 "Gee, Twi, what do you want to do tonight?"
"The same thing we do every night, Shining: Try to take over the world!"
They're Shining and the Twi, yes Shining and the Twi. One is a genius, the other's just plain. They're Canterlot kids, their grades came in. They're shining, they're shining and the Twi, twi, Twi...

What is the reference? It's sounds familiar, but I can't quite put my hoof on it...

7727625 It's a reference to Pinky and the Brain.

7727881 This is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. :pinkiegasp:

That...wow. That fits way too well. :rainbowlaugh:

7727903 It's extra-relevant because this is a story about Twilight trying to take over the world. :twilightblush:


“I think so, Moonlight, but where are we going to get one dozen banana-cream pies and an alligator at this time of day?”

Meanwhile, back at Stately Wayne Pie Manor…
"MY PINKIE SENSE IS TINGLING! Or is it that gravel soup I just had for lunch?"

Okay, I've had a good laugh at this. And the "Twilight Campaign" bit makes it even better. :rainbowlaugh:

As for the story itself: I liked it. Have an upvote! :)

Shadow: Hahahaha, oh my God I can't breath! *DED*
[Cause of death: Excessive Laughter]

I, for one, welcome our adorable new overlord. Careful, her cute widdle face is a WMD.

Good to meet you, Not Hungry

Ah, the most infamous Dad joke of them all.

7727881 This was just too funny I couldn't even leave a comment on this story because I was too busy laughing at this wonderful video. :rainbowlaugh:

I do have one question about this story.

Why are Twilight and what appears to be Shinning Armor dressed like rabbits for the cover art?

Great story loved every bit of it by the way. I hope there will be a sequel to this story.

I have no idea why the costumes look like rabbits to you, but if they do, I'll want to fix that. :twilightoops: It's supposed to be the costumes mentioned in the story.

The cover art isn't completely done anyway, as he needed to publish the story sooner than I was able to finish it. Hopefully I'll get the updated version out soon.

7729353 I think what put that idea in his head was the way Twilight is holding her forelegs.

Ah, I think I see what you mean.

Drat, double drat! bested by my one weakness freshly bake cookies!

Banana cream pies and an alligator...? :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

7730038 Well, I was told it could possibly be a crocodile too, but Twilight said they weren't native to that part of Equestria. So alligator it is!


He needs to be careful with it.

It's the Dadliest joke in the world :trollestia:

That was adorable and funny throughout. Always good to see filly Twilight getting carried away.

Now I'm just waiting for her to actually take over Equestria.

Always fun seeing kids being silly kids, with imagination running wild.

One minor quibble, though. If this is supposed to fit in with the show's timeline, then this should probably use a made-up name:

“So good to see you again, Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.”

Since Twi's reaction to first hearing the name in Canterlot Wedding is lack of knowledge and swearing:

Princess Mi Amore Cadenza? Who in the hoof is that?!


7731483 I'm going with the idea that kids tend to forget things. She remembers Cadance because that was what she called her regularly, but for her monologing she'd be more proper. Doesn't mean she'd actually remember it 10-15 years later. She just remembers her amazing foal sitter, Cadance.

“Whatever you say, Moonlight. What say tomorrow, now that we’ve conquered the first princess, we focus on something a bit more local. Say… taking over the school so I don’t have to turn in the homework I was trying to do earlier?”
Twilight sat very still and placed her cookie on the napkin in front of her. Turning her head with the most serious look she could manage, she deadpanned. “Let’s not get carried away, B.B.B.F.F.”


Cute AF. Do give us more of those, please! :pinkiehappy:
