Rambling Writer

Our job is not to give readers what they want; our job is to show them things they never imagined. --Walt Williams



Suddenly finding herself in hell, Twilight is presented with one fact: for the rest of eternity, she's stuck in a library holding every book possible. She's expected to organize them and is allowed to read them.

What makes this hell, again?

Now has two Spanish translations, one by SPANIARD KIWI and another by Pugg-Senpai.

The moment I leave, she runs past me, apologizing because there’s a “disturbance in the folio” or something.

Like a million pages cried out in fear and were suddenly crinkled?

That was cute, though the demon names were almost physically painful. The personal hell ID code and "Lowerarchy" were both quite well done, though. Thank you for an enjoyable bit of silliness.

Loved it, might share this with a few non pony friends. Well done.

And now, Twilight is going to spend the rest of her life knowing that there is an incredible library in Hell, and that she will never get to see it for as long as she lives (if ever again). So, in a way, her life is a little less thrilling, and Discord got to create a little chaos by doing a favor for Twilight (even if she'll never know it).

That was a fun and delightful quick read! Thank you!

Nice, but I think there's a line missing near the beginning. Twilight replies with “It is?” but the only thing the demon said beforehand was “Welcome to hell.” . Other than that, a very enjoyable read.

Interesting one shot. I like it.


The walls were lined with shelves and shelves and shelves of books and books and books; she was a library (yay, hopefully) of some kind, only bigger than any library she had ever seen before.

I think that's taking her love of books too far.

Ok. That was HILARIOUS. how you came up with that, I don't know, but I won't ask, either.

If Fluttershy can be a tree, Twilight can be a library.


I know this is supposed to be a comedy, and it is a good one, but my mind keeps coming back to a particular episode of the Twilight Zone. Not sure why.

Poor Twily, had her share of Hell Heaven taken from her...

Great story!

Poor Twilight though :fluttercry:

Very nice if it wasn't spelled out Discord caused the chaos of putting her there I could almost see this as Tiwlight's side of "Solving for Death" by Majin Syeekoh

This brought a smile to my face. It also reminded me of an episode of Eek the Cat getting sent to Hell instead of Heaven. He was tasked to clean an infinite litterbox... and did. Apparently, he made some sort of game out of it.

..makes me wonder if the worker of hell will use her system. pretty darn impressive.

Near the end there I was expecting her to cast some anchoring spell or something so that she could go back when she wanted.
"Save me Screwtrot."

Oooooh this was fantastic, good show!

I hate that I'm not nearly this creative.

Well, that was fun. Could have done with leaving the explanation of how Twilight got there mysterious, though.

Reminds me of a scene from the Simpsons where Homer was being force-fed donuts in his particular afterlife and enjoying every minute of it.

Our thoughts exactly.

Some errors :raritywink::

1. The walls were lined with shelves and shelves and shelves of books and books and books; she was a library (yay, hopefully) of some kind, only bigger than any library she had ever seen before.

2. There had to be something bad involved. (I would italicize 'something' too.)

This story was hilarious! I've seen comedies that weren't funny at all. But this . . . this was glorious!

I'm now following you!

Keep on writing! :pinkiehappy: Enjoy my 👍 from me to you!

I am normally pretty lazy my room is messy but I like my game shelves really organized. My dad is the opisite he cares about me being neat about literally everything else so he beats me

Well that was friggin' amazing. :rainbowlaugh:

A few minor errors here and there, but hilarious all the same!

Was not expecting a Screwtape reference here, but I guess I should have :rainbowlaugh: Their personalities were on point.

Still has no dislikes! Woot

Okay, that was amusing as hell :yay:

Being sent back was the real Hell.

:moustache: better you then me.

This was a work of genius. :rainbowlaugh: I loved the whole thing, well done. :yay:

:rainbowkiss: I...can't even! :rainbowlaugh:

I see what you did there.

Well I guess Twilight's burning with anguish, and possibly despair now. To her leaving all that information unread is damnable.

So how many of these books did she read? Has Twilight returned knowing literally EVERYTHING now? Sequel maybe?

i find that ironic that in hell she was in paradise and now not having access to that paradise her life is a living hell


Hopefully the Image fits, because as soon as I saw the word ironic in your comment this popped into my head.

how is palpatine ironic

He said it once, and it has forever been ingrained in my memory.

And you just jinxed it.

Huh, I thought they were going to reveal that having something so fun being ripped away from her was her actual hell... of course I also thought she had died and just didn't know it from choking on food.

That cover picture is really cute by the way, darn Twilight and being so adorkable.

Twilight's personal hell can still be a library.

They just need to fill it with students plagiarising for their assignments, dog-earing pages, opening books wide enough to curl and crease the spines, turning pages with greasy hooves, and deliberately returning books to the wrong shelves so that only they can find them again.

And Twilight can only watch as a disembodied spirit. :twilightoops: :twilightangry2:

I feel she would still some how figure out how to organize, care for, and read the books. Her meer presence unsettles the potential defilers of folio.

Shouldn't it be filled with books on nature philosophy written unironically? And the 90s dork age of Power Ponies when Humdrum was killed and Fillisecond was a witch-weed addict? And Twilight Sparkle's own badly written romance novels?

Twilight's eternal punishment is to organize and read an infinite library filled with books. Somebody contact Satan, clearly someone is screwing up down there.

"That’s not possible. The Library is infinite.”
“Look, don’t ask me how she did it, but she did it!

Twilight Sparkle: Master of the impossible.

"There was time. There was finally time."

How long before Twilight finds a way to break into Hell? :v

Yeah, the god of chaos killing a pony and sending them to hell sounds about right. I bucking loved it.

Oh yes, this was the PERFECT Hell for her. She has an Infinite Library, then has it taken forever beyond her reach. FOOOOREEEEVVEEEEERR!

not bad, it is quite good, but at the same time not really my cup of tea.

2 hours maybe a week

Interesting that nobody seemed to get the references to "The Screwtape Letters"....
