Sometimes you just want to hear your favorite story told a little different


What happens when you throw a Roaming Princess, space exploring Pegasus, country equa-lion, meek vampire, and a haughty seapony into a modern waitress’s home with no explanation?

Confusion, destruction, and friendship as they try to find a way home. Followed closely by secret societies, forbidden magic, and a heaping of destiny as they battle to save their friends from a dark cult and rescue the world in the process.

AH a time gambit! The gauntlet has been thrown. Dash is going to feel bad for bad mouthing Pinkie I think in a bit though I am sure she will make it up to her.

Haven't read yet but thumbs up just for concept.

So they're their Nightmare Night costumes?

(I assume Applejack is a were-lion)

Hey there. Thanks greatly for getting this story started. I have to admit that this DOES look downright intriguing. My guess is that Twilight was pulled from the past, Rainbow was pulled from the future and all three of the others were pulled from different universes entirely [Fluttershy is a vampire, Rarity is a mermaid and Applejack is a were-lion) . But I will admit that I COULD be wrong, But at any rate, very good job on the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up in all the right places.

I will most certainly be looking forward to more of this, but I will also respect the need for real world matters to take top priority.

This may be the weirdest idea you've ever had, but may the Moon keep shining on me, I want to read more! Have a very well deserved fave and like!

Nice. Time shenanigans are always fun. Keep it going.


Oops. I replied to the wrong post.

And yeah, they seem to be playing the roles of their Nightmare Night Costumes: both were-wolves (and presumably were-lions) and vampires can pass for normal people/ponies, and if Rarity is a powerfully magical seapony, no reason she can't turn herself into a regular one: Twilight can turn herself into a Breezie, after all.

(The one I disagree with is Pinkie: I think the author is imagining her as one of those drive-in waitresses, but that looks more like a roller disco outfit to me. )

*hums Dr. Who(oves) theme* Where's the TARDIS?

This is the weirdest idea I've ever had.

Sometimes it's the really weird ones that work out the best, so I say, BRING IT ON! :rainbowdetermined2:

What episode is the cover art from? That is from an episode, right?

It's from Scare Master the second episode focused on Nightmare Night.
Season 5 episode 21

I’m really liking this concept so far. I can’t wait for the next update. Well done Darling.

This is the weirdest, idea, ever. Of all time.
I love it.

Meh, I think she could pass for either one. I thought she was a roller-derby-est when I first saw the episode.

... Is there going to be more?

:pinkiehappy: This is amazing. Eagerly looking forward to more, whenever it may come.

Hoping this continues!

Haha! You and me both :)

AWESOME! I just love the idea of Twilight just showing up and be like 'MISSED ME?'

Maybe she'll reintroduce The Royal Canterlot-Roam Voice'.:twilightsmile:

IT LIIIIIIIIIIIIVES!!!! It lives. And Rarity's a hippogryph. Huh. Well, I guess the delay gave us something at least.

And this gives me hope that all those unfinished stories I'm tracking might finally get an update

Other than that this is a pretty cool au so far I can't wait to hear about the other characters time periods and what the overall story is

It's a good thing I spotted this in the front page's list of updated fics this evening, or I probably never would've known it updated, as I had thought it a dead fic and stopped following it quite awhile ago.

Assuming it'll update a little faster from here on out, though, I'll rectify that now so that's no longer an issue. :raritywink:

Anyway, this is still promising to be a very inventive premise, so in all seriousness, I hope it does keep going. :twilightsmile:

Sounds like Pinkie and Dash are about to go out together. Should be good times they are usually a fun combo.

This chapter might have taken a while, but was WELL worth the wait. Love the work that went into the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up. I especially loved the explanations for the time periods, Twilight's point outs concerning the complexities of time AND how rest and food would be helpful and the little role reversal of Rainbow Dash fangirling Scootaloo.

I am very certainly going to be looking forward to more of this, but am definitely VERY willing to be patient.

better nate than lever

Good to see more of this. I adore the Scoot/Dash role reversal and the complete disregard for the sanctity of the time-space continuum that entails. Eagerly looking forward to further madness.

The more we turned to cool gadgets and stuff the less we could shoot lasers out of our heads and control clouds.

Huh. You'd think that'd be cause for concern. Or Dash has cause and effect confused, and the weakening of innate magic led to ever more sophisticated technological alternatives. After all, an accurate explanation falls under "egghead stuff."


Or perhaps it's the common "rise of science causes the fading of magic" cliche, which long predates even G1 Ponies.

Yeah. I can respect the time drain of real life. I'm just glad to see this story continuing. Excellent job on the exchanges, characterizations and future chapter set-up in all the right places. I particularly liked Scoots meeting AJ, Twi and Flutters as well as her reactions to their admittedly hard-to-believe stories. And AJ's passing mention of her little sister was also great in addition to Twi's chat with that survey pony.

VERY certainly looking forward to more of this.

"...‘Cept that she’s a platypus.” She leaned down like she was telling Scootaloo a secret. “And platypi can be ornery little things..."

And here I thought for sure she was going to say that they don't do much. :rainbowlaugh:

Nice to see the story is still continuing, and still hoping it will keep on going too, however possible. :twilightsmile:

Platybloom? Wasn't expecting that... though only the males have those venomous spurs. Granted, hengstplatypodes might work differently.

and there’s nothing you can say to convince me otherwise.

Phrasing is important. :ajsmug:

Great addition. Looking forward to the next. Best of luck with class.

But it won't leave me alone and the plot is almost entirely worked (and by that I mean I know how it's going to end and I've thought about the middle at least once) out so I guess I'm going with it.

That's the status my idea has been at since before Season 5, and I still haven't done enough to feel like I can post the first chapter... always a game to conquer or other story to peruse...
