Y’know, I try to be open-minded, but I still never thought I’d wind up taking a trickster god’s place in a world of candy-colored horses. My name’s Chance, and I’m in way over my head.

What? Suppose I should back up a little. I'm just your average guy. I try to be nice to folks, when I'm near them, but mostly I just like to be alone with my stories. In hindsight, I should have been more suspicious about the old man in the bookstore, but no point crying over it now. I'll admit, this is exciting! A whole new world of magic and whimsy to explore? Count me in!

...It's a shame though. It's not quite as nice as I expected...

I approve. This fic is definitely interesting and the flow of the jokes and humor is really good. Keep up the good work.

I like it, I shall be the First to thumb up your adventure. ^_^

Ignore the comment above mine, he don't count.

Interesting, and good too. I'll be keeping a close eye on this.

My oh my, now this is interesting. Some poor unfortunate soul being given incredible power but having no idea how to use them. Add to that the fact that he is in this particularly hostile version of the MLP universe. Yes, I see much potential in this one.

Carry on and good luck. Kudos. :moustache:

Ahhh... well written and nice! Welcome to the game, my friend. May you have many joyous travels and badass things to do along the way.


I'm really digging the nine tailed fox choice but the chapter felt rushed quite fast, and some how I get the sense that something is missing.
Slow down and develop a situation thoroughly before moving on otherwise good start. I look forward to seeing what becomes of this piece's life.

It's the new conversion bureau.

Damn you other authors for getting here before I the mighty Troutking!
Meh I am the unofficial greeter of our lovely group!
I for one love the idea of the a nine tailed fox.
I have to ask did you get it from pokemon, naruto or actual japanese mythology?
Anyway good work so far!
Oh and thanks for letting me feed off you!


Yeah, with a less apocalyptic feel.

Good good
You have pleased me new blood
You shall be spared in the coming feeding frenzy

Well, this is interesting, Instead of gaining power or prize, the 'Master' is giving away his powers. And dude, there's an obvious 'super' hero with cloning powers, you mentioned him yourself: Naruto, master of Shadow cloning.

Hmm, dividing tails. So you could hypothetically make 9 of yourselves? Well, if you're ever lonely, you could always play a game with yourself
(get your mind out of the...Am I the only one who's thinking of this?)

This. Is. Awesome.

You may proceed :ajsmug:

I have referenced this story slightly, alluding to kitsune as a native Equestrian species. Magic wielding sapient foxes... this universe just keeps getting better and better. :yay:

This is a really fun idea! Can't wait to see what's up next. I also like that you took your inspiration straight from the mythology, rather than the gazillion other works with foxes in them. Our dear protagonist is in for a few freaky days of finding out his fox powers, eh? :derpytongue2:

Ooh, I'm liking this so far. Kitsune are one of my favorite mythological creatures, and so far the story itself is being executed quite well. I'll definitely be watching this one. :twilightsmile:

I particularly look forward to seeing what other kitsune powers are going to get worked into this tale... Probably shapeshifting; that's pretty much a staple of the kitsune's bag of tricks, but what else? Illusion? Possession? Fox-fire? Draining life force? I can hardly wait! :pinkiecrazy:

Poor Zecora, she must be so confused. :rainbowhuh:

This chapter felt rather rushed (and almost started off like Ballad of Echo the Diamond Dog), but I am intrigued. I'm tracking this one.

Yeah, the beginning's kinda cliche, but cliches happen for a reason. Very good story

any idea when you will have the next chapter up

Huh, now this really is an interesting Story. Someone becoming a Kyuubi no Kitsune / Youko is a first... I think. I wonder if he has Immortality, the ability to see everything around him in a hundred yard radius, transform into anything he wants, the ability to conjure Fox-Fire, or any of the other traits common with Nine-tailed foxes. I also almost expected the old man to turn out to be Inari, since he's the Japanese Trickster God and a patron of Foxes, I know they're his messengers at least. Anyways, hoping to see more.

This is the only good fanfic in the ponyverse with kitsune at the moment... PLEASE tell me this isn't dead.

2514886 No, I mean do you want to have it. To write for.

I want to see this story continued, but it wasn't until after I wrote this one chapter that I realized I had no idea how to continue it. I'm great at creating characters with fleshed-out personality, developed backstories, and etc., but it tends to fall apart when I try to make a story to put them in.

2516668 well... I would.... If I didn't have my own idea for a kitsune fic.
(It's gonna be called sandwich(doesn't sound too mighty does it? promising right!? XD))

That and I have yet to reliably produce literature myself.
once I am able to, I might consider it.
You can consult other authors for help on how to get past this block, however.

2516907 It's not a block, I've just lost interest in the Chess game as a whole, really.

This sounds interesting. I will track and read when I can.

im fining this amusing are you going to continue this with either your own setting or the CGotG setting?

2818740 No, it's dead. Know anyone who'd want to pick it up?

i wish, i would take it myself but I'm not much of a writer either

no idea, not sure why i put that there, probably still tired

If it's really dead than I'd say changing from incomplete to canceled is in order, although I don't know how a story writer does that. Sad if that's the case:fluttershysad::fluttercry::raritydespair::raritycry:

3720978 I've actually been thinking of restarting it, as not a part of the Chessgame. Consider it "On Hiatus until further notice."

3721699 sweet i will wait and watch for updates:pinkiehappy:

Thanks for not updating ASSHOLE!!!!!

More, pls? I've had one eye open on this book for more months than I care to count, and it STILL hasn't updated. I will be patient and wait for now, but patience only lasts so long.

a pity this is cancelled.

3721699 please. PLEASE restart this. It was so good! I'd read this even as not part of the chessgame!
