The Descendant

Thanks, but please don't send me cash "tips." Instead, support this charity: The Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club.


Spike has finally saved up his allowance, and on a beautiful winter's day he buys his first material possession, a sled!

When a technical difficulty causes him to doubt his purchase Twilight quietly uses her magic to solve the problem. But what awaits the dragon whelp as her magic turns an average sled into the Super Amazing Rocket Sled of Awesome?

I'm afraid there is only one thing that can describe this.

Literary Orgasm.

With a name like this you can't go wrong.

You've done it again. This is the perfect simple funny story. I'm afraid I'll never be able to see Ace the same way again though.:pinkiehappy:

Nice, nice nice! I think my favorite bits were "Reality collapsed upon itself, passed through a substance not unlike potato salad while wearing lederhosen, and emerged on the other side as a rather large woman named Frieda. " and when you described RD just sitting around, sadly eating fudge.

(Is so stunned that he has to use Emocons to communicate) :pinkiegasp: :rainbowlaugh:

Reads like something from Douglas Adams at times, brilliant!

Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

I only have one concern - what happened to the unfairly liberated sheep afterwards? I must know if they got a happy ending or if they were left to suffer in freedom?

I absolutely loved it! Well written, humorous with just the right amount of slapstick. Only one concern... I do not know, nor do I ever want to know, what was "special" about that flour. Ok? :pinkiesick:

That title and the image alone gets you 5 stars, fuck the rest of the fic it's all down from here. Get it? It's a sled pun!! Awesome-tactular. You write comedy so well. dude

Peace out.

Why am I reminded of the Awesome Sky Carriage of Awesomeness(C)?*

*The ASCA(C) is the sole property of CardsLafter on Equestria Daily

I admit, it seemed like a stupid premise. Right up to the point where Spike pushed off. I spent the remainder of the fic laughing my head off. The only thing better than ludicrous slapstick comedy is ludicrous slapstick comedy narrated in the dry tone of a sixty year old archaeology professor.

5 out of 5, no question about that. Everything from Spike's perception of reality to Charlie Sheen's windmill (that's the only kind of "special" flour that comes to mind) just pushed me farther into paroxysms of hilarity.

Now, I have one suggestion, and one suggestion only. If you haven't already, submit this genius work to Equestria Daily. I'm serious. Do it. Right now.

My first born.... He is yours...

Holy smokes! I got a featured story?! Holy smokes! 200 reads and 13 comments in less than 24 hours! Oh wow!:pinkiehappy:

Heh...I take it you liked it then!:raritywink:

Thanks so much!

That's what I assumed! Thanks for reading!:pinkiesmile:

Heh, glad you liked it!:twilightblush:

Thanks so much for saying so!:twilightsmile:

I'm very glad you enjoyed it, I did try so hard to make the comedy work! Don't worry, Ace will be okay!:pinkiesmile:

Those were some of my favorite bits too!:raritywink:

I would reply in emoticons, but this one's gonna be pretty close to their use limit...so please just take my thanks instead!:twilightblush:

Adams is one of my favorite authors, and I love his style of humor. Yes, I'd very much say he influenced this work...thank you so much for reading!:pinkiesmile:

I am very glad you liked it! Don't worry about the sheep, Big Mac came around later and kept them all quiet with some happy propaganda as Applejack rebuilt the "Scary Thing Exclusion Unit".:raritywink:

Hooray! Thank you!:twilightsheepish:

The "special flour" only contains whatever is necessary to get the biggest laugh!:twilightsmile:

That's the first picture I've had to make myself, as there was absolutely nothing else that even came close to what I needed. I'm glad you liked that as well! Oh, yes...I got the joke! Well done!:pinkiehappy:

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that story. I hope you believe me when I say I didn't mean to copy anything about it. They aren't too similar, my story and that one, are they?:twilightoops:

You are far too kind to me, good sir! I don't know if "master" is an appropriate title, but I promise to keep doing my best. Thank you so much for the wonderful comment!:pinkiesmile:

Oh wow, another wonderful comment! You folks are being so nice to me today!:twilightsheepish:

I'm very glad you enjoyed it so much! Thank you so much!

How is he at yardwork?:raritywink:

Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

Ha:rainbowkiss::pinkiehappy::.......though I kind a wanted spike to rip out the accent from AJ and AB:ajbemused::applecry:

Five words...


Seriously laughing my rump off the whole time. Think my favorite part was how Pip got the accent ripped out of him. :rainbowlaugh: (Not that I don't like Pip's accent, it was just hilarious)

I laughed so hard I cried. Excellent! Simply marvelous!

With that, he spoke one word.


and so it came to pass that all that had come before happened once again, maybe next time reality will refrain from wearing lederhosen eh ? :twilightblush:

Dude I rank your stuff up there with some of my favorite writers who do character based work like Coffeebean and TheGentlemenCreeper. I dunno between you three you guys are like the three headed dog that guards the gates of Hell oh and that dog just happens to write great stuff.

When I saw "The Descendant" as the author of this story, that alone was enough to give me the irresistible urge to read it. I like how you portray Twilight's affection concern for Spike; it makes me love that couple more and more.

When it comes to fanfiction, I have a certain list of authors, writers that have proven time and time again that their work is above exceptional, that their literary masterpieces are nothing short of astounding. Squeak-Anon, Saddlesoap Opera, Wanderer D, to name a few. You just earned a spot on the list.

This story was simply brilliant. Top-tier comedic elements, perfect portrayals of multiple characters, uh...

You know what, it'll save time if I just sum it up this way: I can't find anything to criticize about your writing. Nothing that I think could stand to be improved, nothing that I think should change, nothing. Absolutely wonderful.


Based on name alone I am reading this. This will totally be SUPER-SPECIAL-AWESOME!!!

I am many things in many places. Here I am Not.


As in everything I read I found flaws. Like three other stories that I have read this is good enough for me to give it my highest rating as of yet. It was quite fun, and I believe my favorite moment would be the moment in which Ace transforms and decides to be a queen. I am shrewd in my ratings and thus I don't give a 5. I give only a 4.5. My reasoning for this is that spike is less the only less than perfect character. I was a bit confused when you chose to make him yodel. I have never given a story on this site a 5. I don't believe I ever will. You have earned my highest rating along with my other favorite stories however.

I am many things in many places. Here I am Not.

Always room in the sequel!:raritywink:

I most certainly would not mind if they made this an episode...especially if they credited/paid me for it! Alas, that though is not the fate of a fan-fic writer, and I'm very glad you enjoyed it in this form.:twilightsmile:

I am very glad you enjoyed it so much!:pinkiesmile:

But... but I like lederhosen.:fluttercry:

Just kidding! Thanks for reading!:twilightsheepish:

I'll have to talk with those other writers about getting a Cerberus suit made up! Thanks so much for the high compliment, I really appreciate it!:pinkiehappy:

I'm very glad that you've taken my name as a mark of quality. Yes, Twilight and Spike's family-like relationship is very important to me. I'm actually kinda worried about this episode that starts in fifteen minutes just because I'm hoping they'll touch on it. Thanks for reading!:twilightsmile:

Very impressive company. I've tried my best in each of my stories... I'm glad you feel that I deserve to be listed amongst such luminaries of the fan-fiction writing craft!:pinkiesmile:

I accept that as a high compliment. I had Spike beginning to yodel because the idea of him yodeling, having a secret like that, was absurd...and hence I felt added to the absurdity of the situation. I thank you for feeling that the story deserved to match the highest stories you've rated. Thank you!:twilightsmile:


SPIKE A BOSS!:moustache:
(c wut i did thar)

This bears heavy resemblance to the Hitchhiker's series. Me likey. :pinkiehappy:

i believe that this can be summed up in one word.


have some stars for your trouble. perhaps 5?

She was the living embodiment of fast! She was the living pillar of quick! She…she was…

…she was being passed by a yodeling baby dragon on a sled.

Reality collapsed upon itself, passed through a substance not unlike potato salad while wearing lederhosen, and emerged on the other side as a rather large woman named Frieda.


This was amazing. Truly and undeniably pure awesome.

Thank you so much!:twilightsmile:

Heh, thanks!:pinkiesmile:

Oh yes, Douglas Adams is one of my favorite authors, so it does have some similarities.:twilightsheepish:

Thanks for the stars!:pinkiehappy:

Glad you liked it!:twilightsmile:

I'm very glad you think so!:pinkiesmile:

With this and "Cup of Joe," you've definitely established yourself as someone I'm willing to read even before reading the description.


One of the most funny MLP fics I have ever read! Hilarious would be a major understatement. I really loved this.

58967 No problem. The Awesome Sky Carriage of Awesomeness(C) is something from a story called "Through the Eyes of Another Pony," by CardsLafter. It's a HIE, only the OC gets turned into a pony. No more details, it's a good story, you should check it out sometime. I mean, if you want to.

That means so much to me! Thank you!:twilightsmile:

I really appreciate that!:pinkiesmile:

I'm very glad you liked it! Thanks for the stars!:twilightblush:

I take it you enjoyed it then! Thanks so much!:pinkiehappy:

It means a lot to me that you would say so!:twilightsmile:

I'll have to check it out during my "down time".:pinkiesmile:

Absolutely hilarious. I say, the narrator was the best character!

Screamingly funny.

Thank you! Heh, that narrator, he gets me every time too!:raritywink:

I'm glad you found it funny!:twilightsmile:

so, my gf asked me to tell her a story so she could fall asleep. like a boss, i picked this. she fell asleep. but i still cracked up at spike excreting his pancreas through his tear ducts. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

"Reality collapsed upon itself, passed through a substance not unlike potato salad while wearing lederhosen, and emerged on the other side as a rather large woman named Frieda."

This line is trying its very hardest to be zany but just falls flat.

I'm very glad you liked it! Glad the story is useful as well as entertaining.:twilightsmile:

Thanks for reading anywho.

That's an awesome idea!:twilightblush:

Just wanted to say: Thank you for writing this! That story was awesome :)

Thank you so much for saying so!:pinkiesmile:

I'm very glad you enjoyed it!:twilightsmile:

As a fellow writer, I have to say....this....oh-em-gee yes, this was EXCELLENT! :heart:

I can only see comedy genius here, I mean, beautiful! Every single incident that Spike's wild ride on that rampant sled fit the whole scenario perfectly, and only kept getting funnier. I kept picturing the sheep and their voices in my head and just couldn't stop laughing at that, either! :twilightsheepish: IF anything though, I think you should take a crack at one particular spin-off story idea....

The bit about Solar Flare? That should be a comedic epic story that you should really consider writing. You have the comedic genius that I know I lack most of the time, I'm sure you could pull it off and pull it off swimmingly chapter after chapter! :raritystarry:

Their attempts were interrupted by the cries of ponies upon the slope, however, as they ran around in small circles while screaming and flailing their forelegs.
Think about this for a second. Are they running on two legs?

Other than that, frickin hilarious.:rainbowlaugh: This seems like something out of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
