Sense of Humor


A funny author(hopefully)

T

(This story is part of the shared Marvel/MLP universe created by this guy.)

Derpy was only trying to deliver a box of fireworks (that were due for transport days ago) to somepony by the last name of Lulamoon. As it happened, the pony turned out to be a really famous showmare and she didn't seem very happy when she arrived in the middle of the night, though the oddly emotionless mare beside her...well, she wasn't sure. Anywho, Ms. Lulamoon wasn't mad at Derpy; a really big metal bird thing demolished her home when it fell out of the sky, and she was really bent on finding the owner and giving them an earful. In her defense, Derpy didn't know she stepped on any buttons inside the blasted thing; nopony should leave stuff like that for a mailmare like her to step on. But then they were suddenly in this giant black space and Equestria had completely vanished. Then the showmare got angry at her. The other pony? She just kept staring blankly.

Lucky for them, these cool alien creatures came out of nowhere and offered to get her home once they finished a job they had to do. See, they're apparently Guardians of the Galaxy or something like that, and they help out folks in the galaxy. So, Derpy naturally assumed that they'd just tag along for now and they'd be home in no time at all, where she could finish her delivery andjust maybe keep her job!

Then the talking raccoon stole a few batteries from these golden people, and everything went downhill from there.

Like,way down. Like falling of a cliff into an endless void-down.

So, Derpy and Trixie in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? Sign me up!

"Yes, other civilizations! Maybe the Kree, maybe the badoons, that place with the freaky horses...Oh!"

Wait, he planted one on Equus?! Oh, shit...

Does this story have any spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in it?

Yes, if this is anything like the prologue, the story will follow GotG Vol. 2 heavily. So if you want to wait until the DVD comes out, I suggest putting this story in "Tracking" until you finish the movie.

In other news, if this story ends with Derpy and Trixie joining the Guardians. Then I am completely interested. If the prologue didn't seal it for me (And it did), I completely look forward to your story for the concept alone.

Well, this seemed interesting. Just a thought, maybe you should include more side characters like Shining Armor, or Cadence, maybe even Doctor Whooves.

8376414

Well, i don't intend to follow it too heavily, but the plot is very much involved.

8376290
Eeyup.


8376236
Yes. Quite the problem.

Everything's better with Kurt Russell... and ponies, of course.

this reminds me heavily of guardians of the galaxy vol. 2 (which i watched last night)

Oh boy, looks like Howard the Duck is going to be making a quick stop by Equus, and I think he's going to have a few certain stowaways.

:fluttershysad: And poor Derpy. She just can't catch a break with her job.

:ajbemused: Is this going to just be the same plot as the movie but with MLP added into it the same as "This War of Ours" was?

Because if so, pass.

8377767
Well he plot of GOT2 will be involved, but it will be different.

8378459
Different how? Because JD told us that This War of Ours would be different, but it ended up being virtually the same as the movie but with different characters filling different plot points. I'd rather that this fic do something that isn't... that.

Then again, I don't control it. But after seeing him deliver something so criminally boring after his fic before was the complete opposite, I'm a little skeptical.

So we begin a new adventure. :pinkiecrazy: Excellent work so far. Keep it up.

Howard the Duck FTW! Also, it looks like the Incident in Equus is Ultron's near-extinction of the planet, whereas the Incident on Earth is the Chitauri invasion of New York. Loving it so far! Keep going!

8380118
Duck Tales! Whoo Hoo!

You know, I've always found the chapter where the ponies watch Star Wars so funny, that I imagine the eight of them watching Nostalgia Critic sometimes. Or just the girl's reactions to some of the shitty movies and classic movies of the times. You know what I mean?

8380418 I wouldn't mind a ponies react YouTube channel. :ajsmug:

I would have liked to see more MLP characters go with the Guardians, like Fleur de Lis.

8382785

If I told you exactly how, it'd give away surprises. And JD himself has advised me to be more original after getting those kinds of comments on his story. So I've been thinking up new things for this.
I've definitely put Howard The Duck in a different position plot wise. :P

8382792
Ok. That's already a good sign.

And the world could always do with more Howard the Duck.... that's not being sarcastic, by the way. I REALLY want to see a solo film by Marvel in the future.

"My only work. Feels like my...our sole purpose! It's been sent out to other places not far from earth, but I was worried that the roots wouldn't take to the soil here. But it does! It does!" He waved his hand skyward, eyes distant as if he were imagining an amazing future. "And soon, with a lot of work, I should be able to let other planets have a plant just like this to call their own!"

"Other planets?"

"Yes, other civilizations! Maybe the Kree, maybe the badoons, that place with the freaky horses...Oh!" He snapped his fingers at a sudden realization. "If I can enter peacefully, I'll get the Skrulls one of these too!"

"Well...I don't have a clue what you're talking about!" Meredith offered in the most supportive voice, wrapping her arms around him in a hug. Whatever he did and wherever he went, she would go with him. "But I like the way you say it."

At first I thought he was talking about the Korbinites, but then I remembered "Oh right, MLP fic." So that's obviously not good.

And at least Meredith saying that in this version didn't make her sound entirely stupid. When someone tells me that a glowing alien weed will be "all across the universe, I don't just not ask hard questions and settle for "how they said it." Maybe Grandpa Quill and whoever else told you Ego was bad news might have had a point.

Whooves looked disappointed with her answer, but his spirits were slightly lifted with her question. "Yes! It's for my Shake-making machine! I just need those pieces to finish it. I'm just here for...inspiration on what the main recipe should be."

"Cookies and Cream would my top choice." Derpy giggled as she presented his package and scooted it next to his sundae on the table.

:moustache: Word! Cookies And Creamer 4 Life!

Also, I think the timeline in your story is kind of screwed up. If Twilight and co are still on Earth at the time of or shortly before Civil War, then it's already WAY past the time when Guardians 2 should have taken place in Oct 2014. UNLESS of course if this takes place in the year the film came out or some other time. Just the kind of stuff I tend to notice. Kind of like how Spider-Man Homecoming needs to flat out re-edit some things. Eight years my ass.

Neat
Even if you do change things to be original I hope you keep some of the humor and main plot points of the movie.

"OH CELESTIA, THAT FEELS GOOOOOOD!" Derpy enjoyed the few waves of pleasure radiating from her spine before starting to head off to finish her deliveries. Thanks to his light hit against her back, she could move with a bit more pep in her step and her muscles recieved a much needed burst of energy. "Okay, Doc! I'll see you later!"

...I need to get my mind outta the gutter.

Trixie's eyes blew wide in disbelief and moreso outrage at her ending price."EIGHT BITS?! IF TRIXIE'D KNOWN YOU WERE RUNNING SOME KIND OF...uh, Does Trixie get a discount since she's one of Pinkie's best friends?"

"...If it'll get you out of my bakery sooner," Mrs.Cake sighed and shrugged tiredly." Then you get a discount. It can be delivered whenever you wish, be it today or later. Please say today."

Retail work in a nutshell.

The grey pony combed away the purple bangs from her disinterested eyes and fixed Trixie with a blank stare. " I'm pretty sure you ran into me. I was just standing here talking to...No, Boulder." The mare plucked a small rock up from the ground next to her and stared at it with the same emotionless face. "What did I say about growling at other ponies? She didn't hurt me.I'm fine."

Maud. With the Guardians. This I HAVE to see.

Trixie flinched at the question, her eyes already narrowing at the unchecked item reading Maud's exact words. The unicorn growled when she remembered the reason behind it not being checked off; apparently ponyville was out of several kinds of fireworks including the colors she wanted, so she sent for them in the mail.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say those fireworks were blown up in Vision's face.

:derpyderp1: Oh dear! Derpy accidently pressed the big button and now she along with Trixie and Maud are off on an involuntary adventure, leaving Howard stranded now that his ride has been stolen!:rainbowlaugh:

The belly of the metallic vulture smashed through the various party tables and completely flung everything on them into the air or into the ground. Wood and plastic splinters littered the sky like dull fireworks, but it was nothing compared to the climatic smash of the top half of her home. A piece of her heart broke as she washed the top half disappear in a loud blur and then reappear as many broken pieces scattered along the grassy Plains beneath them. The metallic object continued on as if nothing had happened, but the damage spoke volumes as it disappeared from her thoughts. Trixie sadly surveyed the damage, her lips forming a deep pout as her eyes watered.

"Well, that was close. " Maud took notice of trixie and her eyebrows just barely slanted upwards to make her look sympathetic. Her voice however, was basically the same. "...I'm sorry about your house...At least there's still pieces left to put back together. It could have been worse."

The candles strewn about on the ground suddenly ignited the sparkling juice that was freed from the shattered glass bottles. The bottom half of her house was almost instantly engulfed in flames, along with anything from the party that survived. Maud and Trixie blinked in unison.

"Okay. Now it can't get any worse."

"Please stop jinxing it."

"OH FER CHRISSAKE, I JUST PAID THE THING OOOOOFF!!!"

Guess it sucks to be you, Howard. :rainbowlaugh:

And then, Howard was the first one to almost drop the f-bomb in the MCU. Well, second one. The Punisher was the first. :pinkiecrazy:

Oh, bringing Howard early into the story, huh?

Wonder what'll happen when someone comes across Howard?

"Dat's a DUCK! Dat's a DUCK, man!"

"I think it's lovely." Maud's half lidded eyes appreciated the bedazzled banner and the exotic lettering using for writing the title. " It only says 'Welcome Back, Starlight Glimmer.' Where is everypony else's name?"

Trixie rolled her eyes. "It would be utterly impossible for Trixie to fit all those extremely long names in the banner! But, if you insist on criticising it..." She levitated a permanent marker up from the ground and used it to write: And everypony else, including Spike. in the corner of the banner.

Ya think you could cool it with the nepotism, Trixie?

Oh, for God's sake, Howard.

"It's because they're more of a basic civilization rather than super advanced like us."

Kraglin huffed through his nose, confusion painted clearly on his face. "Yeah, well. I still don't understand what's up with their chins. It's lahk some kind of sweater pattern, you know?"

"Yep. It makes 'em look all swollen and fat in a way. 'Specially with the green skin and purple suit and all."

Skrulls: That's racist!

She came to a full stop as a raccoon (with a tiny figure on his shoulder) opened the cieling hatch and stared wide-eyed at her.

"...Well,sh!t."

"I am Groot!"

Great timing, guys.

The ponies and the Guardians have officially made contact! :yay:

Also, this:

"Even heard rumors of Thanos being up to something. Yeah, no time to be showing teeth. "

Oh, he's definitely up to something. Something big. :pinkiecrazy:

A. You misspelled some words.
B. I would be a happy man if you never say 'Molestia' again.

they are aware of doctor strange

Will the Soveign be in this? I found them quite entertaining and that first battle in the movie was EPIC (and quite hilarious as well)
Poor Derpy, or Muffins she was called in the show I think, just wants to be a hero

Oh, the banter of the Guardians never gets old! Loved Drax's lines in this chapter!

Rocket snorted. "Yeah. Reports of some guy using a green stone to loop time and fight a giant face. Man, people will go into detail for the best laughs, I tell ya."

Doctor Strange reference. Gotta love it. That brings up an interesting question if the Guardians know about Strange, but we'll just have to wait and see.

"I liked you better on my world," Trixie narrowed her eyes even more. "Where you talked less and ate my trash."

"I liked you better as glue,Sweetcheeks."

Trixie's gonna have to apply water directly to the burn. :trixieshiftleft:

Well this is fun, but I'm not sure if you need to put Rocket's dialogue in bold. And you should hire an editor to go over any spelling mistakes because I saw quite a few.

At least he's not a herald of Galactus.

Terrax the Tamer, huh? Cool!

Gotta say, though, Maud definitely stole this chapter for me. :rainbowlaugh:

The feeling's mutual on the Infinity War trailer. :fluttercry:

Another excellent chapter! Great interactions! However, I managed to catch this:

"Well, one can be used to something and still hate it. I'm used to jokes, but I hate smiling. I'm used to running, but I hate running away. The list goes on." They found themselves stalking down the front steps of the high temple, reaching the flat grey bottom in half a minute. The planet itself was almost devoid of color, taking on the same hues as the citizens dressed. Gamora eyed the dull surroundings halfheartedly. "I'm used to jokes, but I hate smiling. I'm used to running, but I hate running away. The list goes on."

Gamora said that twice.

8585850

Yeah the twice thing was intentional, though I did want it worded differently now that I think about it. :/

"...That seems...wrong. I know you're not the most hard-hearted race but...Luna spread terror and threatened countless lives.' Gamora halted in place, surprised and just the slightest bit outraged. "And they just reformed her? What if she had been faking the whole time? And Celestia just forgot the things Luna did?"

Well, to be fair, she spent a thousand years in prison.

"Nothing can change that, Gamora!" She said, trying to look taller than her a failing. It would take some time for the girl's metallic, dull shin bone to adjust to her neural commands. "I can beat you the next time we are brought against one another. I've practiced for weeks!"

Eight year old Gamora barely batted an eye at the smaller girl and her strange appendage. "You've been taking out your anger on lifeless dolls. Father says that anger must only be released when a hit is made."

This would be adorable if it weren't for Daddy Thanos.
Also, it should be "Nothing can change that, Gamora!" she said, trying to look taller than her and failing."

"I don't think a movie about a mean donkey would be good." Derpy quickly reasoned, then mumbled. "Whatever a movie is..."

Wait, where did they mention a don- *Thinks for a second* -oh.

Ooooo! Getting into the first battle of the movie! Love it! :yay:

I'm hoping Derpy dances with Groot during the fight. :derpytongue2:

Finally!
So excited for what comes next and the shenanigans that come with it

"Oh. I gave Rocket the glove that Terrax originally had. " Maud explained and sat on her haunches to lift one forehoof. A metallic, tube shaped glove sat perfectly and glinted in the light of their golden surroundings. When she swayed the hoof, the dagger followed it like an obedient pet. "When he re-designed it for me, I found that I could control rocks and metal elements to the point that I can direct their every movement. Or disperse them into their base atoms and recombine them to form a new metal."

Maud Pie: Earthbender.

If she could just shoot out it'seemed eyes,

Small typo here, not sure what you're saying.

Well, well, it seems that out of desperation, Trixie was able to cast a powerful spell. Hopefully we get to see more of this progression as the story continues.

Hoping Derpy flies in to save Drax. That would be hilarious.

Another awesome chapter! Can't wait for the next!
