Essay Jay

Make it count.


Starlight wasn't able to use her magic to help save her friends. It was a miracle, really, that she was even able to save Equestria with a shattered horn and a ragtag team of anti-heroes. The odds had been stacked against them.

Starlight struggled with not being able to use magic at all after an accident, so when she extended a hoof to Chrysalis in the hopes of reformation and it was rejected, her spirit was broken too. In a self-righteous show of pride, Starlight embarks on a journey of self healing and discovery that she hopes will help heal her body and mend her spirit.

Unfortunately, fourth-dimensional magic is probably going to break Starlight's mind more than it's going to heal it.

This is going to be fuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!

7836142 Marvel/Doctor Strange! Basically, similar characters and themes will appear. You know, magic and stuff! I'm pretty sure you can see where I'm going with this.

So are you a 'Luna is best princess' kinda person?

7836428 How do you mean? As in she's Best Pony or my favorite character

7836529 like you think Luna is the best princess of them all. I assume so because you use Luna instead of celestia mostly.

Three things:
1. Please label your crossovers. If people knew this was crossed with Doctor Strange you would have a much larger audience. Before I read this I thought Starlight was going to learn how to break the fourth wall, which is not what the story is about at all.
2. Repeating anything in the episode with only slight changes is a bad idea. I skipped about half the chapter because I already saw it. Cut that stuff out and replace it with a few paragraphs of summary.
3. That said, I'm interested in following this. Please do keep going.

7836536 I just think it's more appropriate for some of these cases

7836559 How do you think I should go about it, in the title or in the descriptions?

7836615 Author's Note at the bottom of the long description. That's what I do anyway.

Hm, this looks interesting.... I'll be tracking this.

See if you can fit "I've come to bargain!" in the plot! :pinkiehappy:

7836559 Well, I also that some bits of how the broken horn is dealt with in that part of the episode is important. If you skim it, you might not see how badly it actually affects Starlight physically, and maybe emotionally.

If you still think I should condense it, sure, but can I get your opinion?

7836720 Fair enough. I would still recommend condensing it if you can, or making other changes so it's not like reading a novel adaption of the episode in question.

Also if you get the next chapter out within a few days, I think this'll hit the featured box.

Anything with S. Glimmer as main gets a thumbs up from me.

Nice. Are you going to make Starlight like Movie Strange or Comic Strange?

7838602 I think a little bit of both, plus some stuff of my own invention.

Starlight walked into Mortar-

did you just

Starlight walked into Mortar.

One does not simply walk into Mortar... :rainbowdetermined2:

7873398 Not quite, though the two names are quite similar!

Think Marvel.

Do any of you get what I'm referencing in the title of the chapter?

"A funny thing happened on the way to Thor's Hammer" perhaps?

I'm finding this story interesting, and I'm definitively following you from now on. As a fan of both Doctor Strange and Starlight, this would seem like a really good story already, but I'll reserve my opinion of it until something more happens.

7885440 Pretty much got it spot on! Points to you! Sorry for the late reply, I've been working on the plotline for the universe I'm building. Heh.

Universes are difficult.

7836171 Really? Who will be Shuma-Gorath and Dormmamu?

7894783 I'm tempted to say Twilight will be Dormammu because:

But we both know that's not going to happen (I have a role already set for Twilight.)

Also, I think Shuma-Gorath is a big enough entity to appear as himself. What with being an immortal from another dimension and all.

OK we're finally getting to the good stuff. Been a real slow burn but I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end.

Starlight struggled with not being able to use magic at all after an accident, so when she extended a hoof to Chrysalis in the hopes of reformation and it was rejected, her spirit was broken too.

And Chrysalis became more of an unlikable cunt.

I like how this is turning out so far :D

With her entire mind going into shock and her face perpetually frozen in revelation, Starlight flapped her mouth open and closed like a fish.

Starlight.exe has stopped responding. Abort, Retry, Fail?

Discord's forth wall breaking~ness stuff. Need I say more? :pinkiecrazy:

Chapter names? I thought they were pretty good!

Walk?! WALKED!?!?!!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO- chough \breathe - OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!?!?!?!????!!!!??!!!??!?!?!??!??!

7956239 Eh. I still love that chitionous pony-like being.


You writing the next chapter or what?

8158049 I'm almost there :twilightsmile:

I've been busy with other projects.

8158108 Well, as long as you're working on it, I'm fine. I've just become you're biggest fan.

So is there gonna be like, an eldritch abomination pony that takes Dormammu's role?

Hey, buddy? Last sentence. Ya might wanna look over that a few times.
Okay, you fixed it.

8160650 Not particularly. Dormammu is big enough villain to appear as himself and not a ponified version, but I have a vision of how things'll play out. If enough people want a counterpart to him, then sure.

8161030 Since Dormammu is one of my favourite Marvel villains, you won't hear me complaining.

Also...I like that you implemented...

Tangential question: Is Pinkie a Watcher (Since she can peer and interact a bit beyond the Fourth Wall)? For that matter, is Discord a Watcher?

Come to think of it, Discord is more likely to be The Beyonder... And Tirek could be Galactus. Who's Doctor Doom? Someone awesome, probably, and I'm looking forward to reading Starlight's interactions with them.

I'd like to point out that you missed the glimpse of Dormammu we got during that sequence with the Dark Dimensions, unless your omission in this fic was intentional, and potentially foreshadowing...

Can't wait to see the Mordo pony.

You know, considering causality and the butterfly effect, I have to wonder what DID happen with Maud, considering Starlight wouldn't have been in Ponyville to be her friend and convince her to stay...?

Bout time. Sorry, but really. A few months wait, and but a few words? I may have good memory, but I had to read over this entire story to understand what was happening here.

8248774 *One 1/4 months

I'm so sorry, I was focusing on "The First Wonderbolt" for the past couple weeks and I also hit a stump with how to proceed in a way that would flow nicely. Really sorry.

I also wrote the first chapter to the third installment in the main storyline, which is sitting at around 5,000 words, and let me tell you, when you don't have time, 5,000 words and good wording is a miracle.

Again, so sorry. Forgive le moi? :fluttercry:

And also, I'm updating this fic to Issue 3 in the next couple weeks so hold onto your seat, there's more coming up!
