Fantasy Setting

A request by Ether Echoes:

Twilight is tapped to manage the budding equestrian space program.

Twilight was so excited. She drew plans for launch facilities, for a rocket testing range, for an astronaut training center, and of course, for the first rocket design they’d test. It had a three-stage propulsion system, all based on the latest technology.

Princess Luna was very impressed. “A most ingenious contraption!” she observed. “Although I do have one question. If you wish to tour the celestial spheres yourself, would it not be easier to petition for the favor of Breksta, the Alicorn Goddess of Stars?”

Twilight stared at Luna with a blank expression. After a moment, Luna added: “She’s happy to give tours of her domain. And she’s always interested in fancy horseshoes if you’re looking for a gift. Pushing the comets through the heavens each night wears them down very quickly. She’s a size twelve.”

On her way out, Twilight threw all her plans in the dumpster.
