"Burninating the countryside... burninating the peasants... burninating all the peoples... and their thatched-roof COTTAGES! THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!! And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIGHT!!!"


For a millennium they have lurked in darkness, sustaining their deathless (~42%) legion through dank rituals and planning their return.

Now they are driven from their lair by a shortage of the essence that sustains them, and only one mare stands in the way of their inexorable conquest of Equestria.

The good news is, that mare is Limestone Pie. And she is having none of their noise.

... Now I want to see this done in actual death battle format.

And I'm always a fan of absurdly long titles. :trollestia:

8069105 I suspect it would go about the way it does here. After all, they're not an unreasonable horde of slavering maniacs. :derpytongue2:

:pinkiecrazy::trollestia::rainbowlaugh: SMOKE WEED E'ERYDAY DAY!!! :rainbowlaugh::trollestia::pinkiecrazy:

8069416 Well, the Brotherhood would certainly advocate doing so. Of course, they may not be the greatest (or sanest) of role models... :trollestia:

I really liked the plot of this story. It was firmed up pretty good.

8071187 I always aspire to deliver my readers a nice, firm plot. :trollestia:

It was magnificently firmed, yet supple as the story progressed. I wish that I could have seem anothet character pressed against it, trying to make it flex.

8071526 On a not-entirely-but-maybe-partially related note, if this thing could get some legs under it views-wise, I could totally be game for writing a Limestone X Bloodgore shipfic. :rainbowwild:

420 huh... Snoop pass the blunt

Funny story. I hope it gets legs. It certainly deserves it. Something tells me once they get into the "bat" side of Canterlot they'll be like:

I like to fly in Equestria!
The sun is so high in Equestria!
No need to be shy in Equestria!
Watch out for Lime' Pie in Equestria!

8096660 That's awesome. :derpytongue2: Thank you for the kind words as well.

Will it ever get legs? Here, now it's got legs:


A Plot of Bats, huh? Oh dear, I hope FlutterBat, er, Shy is safe (can just see Pinky Pie getting her hooked on Holder's Boulder's dust...):pinkiecrazy: :yay:

8142067 indeed! And with this much reality-bending going on, I have to wonder if the fact that Ponk and Flutters share the same voice actor would be of concern... :pinkiegasp: :pinkiecrazy:

8071265 You... Sent a trollface. Ah. :scootangel:, right?

8200748 Well, I'm mostly just being silly here. Mostly. The thing I personally liked about this story was that Limestone's Limestone-ness allows for a moment of (IMO) genuine conflict and tension as she squares off against an otherwise totally insane set of antagonists. :derpytongue2:

... This makes a disturbing amount of sense regarding Pinkie.

Also, Limestone was probably the best pony to send against such shenanigans.

I'm always glad to see this one attract eyeballs. They say "write for yourself," and even though I know this is a bit stupid, I always end up laughing whenever I re-read it.

My goodness, this was fun. Count on Limestone to end the party. :coolphoto:

You continue to amaze me through each and every story I read.


Once more another specimen for my journal, may you continue to flourish.
