Impossible Numbers

Always aspire to leave the world a better place than you found it; there might be an inspection later.


After his journey through Equestria, the one realm in the Big World where the ponies live, Seabreeze has become a figure of awe and respect among the other Breezies. Much to his annoyance: he just wants to spend some quality time with his family, and he has no desire whatsoever to get roped into so-called adventures. Or so he tells himself.

Once the next Forage begins, he naturally chooses to stay behind and so return to a normal life, free from excitement and terror and dangerous creatures. However, when an intruder rushes into the little village – and is, to everyone's surprise, successfully captured by the Breezies – poor Seabreeze is thrown into the midst of a mysterious and ancient conflict that just screams "ADVENTURE". Things only get worse from there...

Do changelings appear in this story?


Sorry, but no. The title refers to a different hive altogether, as well as a game in the breezie world called Hive Versus Hive. Besides, I would've added the "changeling" tag if they were a prominent part of the story.

Interesting story so far.


Thanks! :scootangel: Should be another chapter out either tonight or tomorrow night. Definitely soon.

So, things are coming together for seabreeze. Progress, not malice, hug? Flutterpony burden anyone?


Flutterpony burden anyone?

Oh yes, that was one of the things that I enjoyed about writing this chapter. It shows how the Flutter Ponies are convinced they're doing the right thing, even while they're coming across as greedy and threatening to Seabreeze.

Seabreeze: Breezie of action!

Here's a heads-up for those following this story: it might be a while before I update this one again, though it will be done before the end of the month. In the meantime, I'll be focusing on another project, the details of which will be clarified in my blog post today.

Apologies in advance for the break in the posting routine. Trust me, it will be continued soon, since the draft is finished and I merely need to perform some minor editing first. Until then, enjoy the tenth chapter! :scootangel:

Well, I think you've waited long enough. We're entering the final run now, so I should have the ending published before the start of December. Until then, please enjoy the eleventh chapter. :scootangel:

EDIT: Interesting fact of the day: as of 28/11/2016, this is now the longest Seabreeze story on the site. That said, there are only twenty in total, on a site containing over 85,000 stories. Poor devil doesn't get nearly as much attention as he should.

This looks like a great start to a story and Seabreeze's comment about griffons makes me think that Gabby is among the griffons halping this year which means it is good for Seabreeze to stay home because he wouldn't get along with her.

What thae Flutterpony says reminds strongly of the Ice Warrior from the Doctor Who episode Cold War. Grandmarshall Skaldak had the same philosophy of if you harm one of us you harm us all.



:scootangel: Glad to see you're enjoying the story. Now that you mention it, I could easily imagine hyperactive Gabby getting on no-nonsense Seabreeze's nerves from the moment they meet, though given her ability to do practically anything that involves helping, he'd probably (if begrudgingly) admit she's good at her job. As for the "harm one of us, harm all of us" philosophy, I haven't seen that episode, but in any case it's a pretty widespread sentiment in many social groups and coalitions. And of course, it's a good way to escalate conflict...

Wonderful to read something unique. A very good and very successful endeavor.


Glad you liked it. Thanks for the comment. :scootangel:

Actually a really good story. It has excellent world building and reads quite nicely.


:scootangel: Late as I am with my comment, I'm glad you enjoyed it. A lot of the worldbuilding was based on a mixture of fairy and elf lore, with a dash of insect biology thrown in here and there. I remember it being quite fun to play around with the concepts.
