Hi! I'm Lurks-no-More: a pony writer, RPG player, SF and fantasy fan, and a general nerd. I hope you enjoy my stories!


Princess Celestia will at last get a taste of Twilight Sparkle. No, not in that way! The whole Elemental Harmony Squad is involved... no, still not in that way!

Popsicles will be prominently involved... and again, not in a naughty way. The only naughty pony here is Luna.

That was cute, I like the taste of this fic. :rainbowwild:

:rainbowhuh: a tad confusing, yet a good read.

Nice. Really good read. :twilightsmile:


You have created a great fic.

And prooved the justice of our culture.

Now go and rest our heroes!

Wow... the innuendos in the description were funny, but this is plain hilarious!

That's Celestia!:trollestia:

God, this story was awesome. But now I want one of those popsicles. :fluttershysad:

I want a popsicle now...that read was good. I give you a thumbs up and favourite! :twilightsmile:

I love to see trolling runs in the family:trollestia:

This was highly amusing and made me kinda want ice cream

Though I must say my only complaint was the flavor for Rarity, it just seemed too plain and simple considering how Rarity is and what not. I guess I was just expecting something with some sort of pizzazz or something. All the flavors perfectly match the pony they represent except for Rarity's but all in all great stuff!

One of your shorter ones, Lurk, but still gold in my book.:raritywink:

Heh. Cute one-shot. And now I want to try all of these. :twilightsmile:

I expected something completely different... and I'm glad I was wrong, this was great :pinkiehappy:

:trollestia: oh Trollestia only you would pretend to be licking twilights horn like that. :trollestia:

i approve of this story.

If I were a lesser man, I'd have killed you for that reference.

for this, i give heart-shaped popsicle. :heart: :rainbowwild:

Well time to break out the ice cream maker.


I would disagree as the fic did state that her flavor used a very complex and high grade of vanilla. Rarity should be something refined and elegant.


I know it says it is high grade vanilla that is used but it also says that it's something that most would not take note of or notice, which is something that Rarity is not. Out of all the mane 6 Rarity is the one who purposely goes out of her way to be noticed and stand out as much as possible. The high class vanilla isn't a bad idea but in my opinion it still needs something extra to push it over the edge and be as spectacular as the unicorn it represents and not just "the kind of a thing a lot of ponies would bypass as something they'd tasted a thousand times before"

"Captain, you should check this out. I'm detecting high readings of likes from my visor..."


But rlly, nice story.

I need a sequel with where the Mane 6 try them out. It would simply be delicious. :heart:


Ah but it did say that the discerning ones would be in for a treat. The refined pony who can appreciate simple refined flavors, food snobs. And High class ponies is who Rarity likes to impress.

Also, we appear to be discussing ice cream flavors for my little pony characters....

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! :pinkiecrazy:

Brilliant. The people at the library are giving me funny looks now, because of my :rainbowlaugh: at the end. This is fantastic.

"Yet there's something more to it as well, a faint undertone of spices that I cannot recognize... Intriguing."
Wait :rainbowhuh:Wat?:rainbowderp:Did she mean ?...No of course she didnt!!:facehoof:
Confound you Princess Molestia!!!:trollestia:
You drive me to think negativly!!


I suppose its just a matter of opinion either way am I right? Still, it doesn't take away from the overall amazingness of the story so in the end does it really matter?

As for how, I'll just chalk it up as excellent writing by the author to spur on an actual discussion on this particular subject. Thus earning them more points in the winning category

I lol'd so hard. good job!

Now, will somepony please get B&J and Hasbro on the line and see about actually MAKING these?
A grand fortune to be made, for sure.

Can I has a Twilight Sparkle please:pinkiesad2:

I was just about to close my browser and go to bed when this caught my eye. Great read and very *snicker* tasteful.

Where did twilighs go anothrr stroy yet to be told writing on nook

Hilarious! :rainbowlaugh: Loved Celestia at the end with 'Twilight' there. Ah, when you're alone...


-slaps the the dumb out of your mouth-

Great concept Lurks-no-More; very original. Not to mention, I am always a fan of trolling Luna! Definately worth a thumbs up and a fav. I think I'll have to have a look through your other stories ... I read Making Do a while back and it was great as well.

I just noticed one small mistake. In the sentence "It was becoming clear to her that Luna had to be involved this." you are missing the word 'in' after the word 'involved.'

Also, I love the picture for this story. I wonder what the names of the flavours are: Applelicious, Rarilicious, Flutterlicious, Dashilicious, Pinkilicious, and Twilightlicious? :rainbowlaugh:

Maybe you have it the wrong way around. Maybe it would take a refined high-class pony to appreciate the complexity and high-quality of the vanilla used. In that way, it can represent how 'simple' ponies ignore the subtleties of high-class, elegance, proper manners, and intricacies of civilized ponies. It could represent that no one but the most sophisticated of ponies appreciate her refined nature.

Seems like Celestia was the naughty one. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild:

Luna's just trollin'.

Maybe something purple should have gone with Rarity...some near-wine quality grapes?

Also, I know this is a one-shot (or it looks like it) but if there is more to this story, then the princesses should at least decide to agree with releasing the product if and only if the Mane 6 get a decent sized share of the profits.


I don't even know what to say:applejackconfused:, except that this story was... interesting.

BUCK that company. B&J paid the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Plus, their sherbet isn't very good. But, a nice Italian Ice would be sublime
no, not THAT Sublime- if only Hasbro had a branch in Italy. It's a good idea, just without the B&J part.

Dammit, now I want to try these Popsicles!
Great story.
That is all.
Journcy Out.

Reading this I suddenly got a craving for a popsicle.

Okay, first of all: Wow. :rainbowderp:

I didn't imagine this would end up being featured... nor the flood of notices that brought on (seriously, they're coming faster than I can react to them). Thanks to all of you who read and, I hope, enjoyed this bit of silliness!

And if you're now craving a popsicle, particularly in one of the Mane Six flavors... then I have succeeded!


I wish I could like posts because DAMN IT I WANT ICE CREAM TOO!!!


I have only one question - what is the unknown spice in the Twilight popscicle?

1021144 1021151 1021766 If you guys want a Twilight-flavored popsicle (or a Fluttershy, or any of the others), then the story has been a success! :twilightblush:

1021189 Thank you! I loved the pic of Celestia (or is it Molestia?) with the Twilight-popsicle from the moment I saw it, and this story just flowed from there. I think it's one of the funniest things I've ever written. :pinkiehappy:

1021598 1021688 1021878 Ooh, good discussion! I picked vanilla for Rarity (and as Celestia's favorite) because, well, it's white! But it's also something that's often overlooked as "plain vanilla", yet good vanilla ice cream is truly delicious and flavorful. I thought this suited Rarity who is a lot more complex and interesting character than her archetype would suggest, and who, in-character, is a small-town girl with a middle-class background who dreams of becoming a part of Equestria's elite - without sacrificing her natural nobility of spirit and generosity. Going with something more flashy and fancy could have also worked, but I liked this approach more.

(Also, thanks for pointing that missing "in" out, Jakub; I've edited it in.)

1021917 If I had thought of that when writing this, I would have used it. :ajsleepy:

Dat pic! Need a Rainbow popsicle stat, I sense some tasty stuff is to be had!

1022080 To be completely honest: I don't know myself! It's a bit of mystery that fits Magic, something that Luna had trouble coming up with and is proud of having thought of. Imagine what fits your idea of a flavor that characterizes Twilight Sparkle well, and it will be that, at least for you. :twilightsmile:

Sweet and simple. :unsuresweetie: *ahem* ...sorry.

I've never thought to put flavors to the Elements of Harmony before. That was perfectly written for what it was. A charming, funny read.

Oh GOD can I PLEASE be that popsicle? :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::moustache:

If I had to guess, I'd say this was a case where the author didn't know either.

"Oh, I've got a brand new combine harvester/And I'll give you the key/Come on now let's get together/In perfect harmony..."
