Life can be a rough gig, and life in Ponyville is no exception. Between pestering Parasprite plagues, dreadful Diamond Dog droves, and colorful Crusader craziness, Twilight Sparkle could tell you that moving to a new town can be quite a hassle. This… is not her story.

Instead, meet Reason. He is not a bearer of one of the Elements of Harmony. He is not a cadet-warrior-pegasus-in-training. He is not a wandering unicorn vagabond living in a dangerous, post-apocalyptic Equestria (that would be silly). No, Reason is a regular earth pony with regular earth pony problems trying to carve out a life for himself and his sister in the not-so-regular town of Ponyville.

Set during the events of Season One, Reason must navigate the perils of a normal pony’s life in a town that is less than normal, juggling romance and duty, and ultimately discovering for himself whether friendship truly is magic... Or, you know, not.

After all, in a place like Ponyville, anything is possible.

I need to see more of this.

Oblivious Reason is oblivious. I like your writing style, not too forced and you, in a most straightforward manner, avoided AJ, which I found hilarious. Will be following

I'm glad you like it! If you happen to notice anything I missed in editing, please let me know! Feedback is always appreciated!

The description was captivating, and the story was not much different. Not too many details, and the letters are amusing. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next chapter, Fearless. dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Bonbon_grin.png

Love it so far. You're writing style is just fun to read in general.

:rainbowlaugh: Silly indeed.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!

Just saw this on EqD, great job so far! If this is the most updated version of the story, you should see if they'll add a link here instead of just the google docs. :twilightsmile:

It's on my to-do list. I used Google docs in order to make everything all shiny and coherent, but was uploading on this site, first (updates were less shiny, but posted quicker). I'm going to request a link to FIMFiction when I send in Chapter Two.

Also: thank you all for reading, as well as the really supportive comments! I appreciate it! :raritywink:

Same lullaby as Fluttershy sings to the CMC? Mildly suspicious.

Not bad, and looking forward to more.


I suppose if "Club Can't Handle Me" by Flo Rida was popular in Ponyville, I would have put that song in instead. Alas, Equestria was not blessed with Mr. Rida's music at the time in question. :pinkiesad2:

I love how delightfully dense Reason is. Turn out I already favorited the story(or I would do it again), so keep up the good work I guess. Looking forward to the rest.

Poor B.B she is setting herself up for disappointment because this aint no fairytale.


Of course this ain't no fairy tale. But you COULD say it's.....


.........a pony tale.


I quite like this story! I generally stick to canon characters, but this is changing my mind :pinkiehappy:

An interesting start!

I like your writing style, and am looking forward to reading more. :D

Enjoying this very much! I'm glad you ended it on a good note. For a bit, I thought this was going to be one of those fics that made Ponyville look like a pretty hostile place. The little details here and there, like the part about the weather team, really paint Ponyville in a positive, happy light, and I appreciate that. My one negative critique is that the scene outside Sugercube Corner ended rather abruptly. Other than that, I can't wait for more. :D


I'm glad you like it! :pinkiehappy: I tried to keep Ponyville relate-able, while still keeping more or less in conjunction with the show. Some little details are more prescient than others (hopefully without being so small as to go unnoticed).

More is on its way!


I eagerly await more! :pinkiehappy:
And of course, Reason is oblivious of the one thing that could really make Ponyville stand out for him. :derpytongue2:


This comment made my day. Which is awesome. That makes you awesome. Please, have a Scootaloo. :scootangel:

I hope it brightens your day as you have brightened mine!

Well ponyfeathers. I was liking reading this on Google Docs, it gave me a sense of nostalgia from when all the fanfiction went to Google Docs. And now I noticed this one, where all the other stories I'm tracking are saved.

I cant decide which one to follow along with :raritydespair:

So that's how Scootaloo and Sweetie Bell met.

In other news, the Sun celebration should be... interesting, to say the least.

A Lower Deck Episode... that's a whole series. :pinkiesmile: This is a very interesting fic, and I'll be watching it!

1062053 Wholeheartedly seconded. Really enjoying how this is shaping up and I can't wait to see more.:pinkiehappy:


All in good time, friend. :ajsmug:

Also, I like your pic.

The plot is a bit too simple, and that Derpy cover had me expecting… well… more Derpy. :derpytongue2: (yeah I know she ain't in the character tags, but I rarely ever check that) …and the title made me think of a chronicle book with many short slice-of-life chapters and assorted characters.

That said, it's a very interesting story and I like the two main characters. I also like how even though it's a simple love triangle, I really can't guess what's coming next, and I'm actually quite eager to find out! Nice work. :ajsmug:

Wow, it took me this long to read this? :derpytongue2:

My apologizes, I got horribly busy the last few weeks. This was a very nice chapter, and I eagerly await the next one.

Great job. I am looking forward to reading more of this story. I hope they are on their way.

A proper romantic comedy on fimfiction? What kind of sorcery is this?

:twilightsmile: I know you told me not to read your story, but I started on the introduction and it's just been a page-turner(Down-scroller?) ever since! So....you should totally update soon.

Once you get back from CG that is.

Well, this isn't nearly as lighthearted as I expected it to be.

992814 Indeed. I very much agree with the afore said statement.

well done adding little referenses to the show there!
