This is legit one of the best fics on the site.

It's a great illustration of how wacky comedy can still get serious and have real emotional moments without ever not being funny. Which is a skill that is very difficult to pull off but also makes for a wonderful story.

Been waiting a long time to see this one hit the site. Great story.

And my own immediate followup wlll be coming tomorrow.

God, this was beautiful! I almost teared up at the flashback in the maternity ward. Wow. Just. Wow.

Glad I was able to get my contribution out before this, because it would have been totally overshadowed by the splendor otherwise.

Goddammit. Sunset should'a just walked off into the su... thing. Getting involved with that mess again is one of the worst things that could happen to her.

How is this story "the logical next step in the Beanis Cinematic Universe"?

Aww, stop it. Y'all are gonna make me blush.

Well, what she was doing wasn't working either.

Are you implying that it's not? The foreshadowing's all there if you look back.

When beanis started being a "thing" I never expected feels from it. Well done.

Sunset just made a huge mistake. Buying a private island and cutting herself off from the actual insanity of Beanis would have been the right option. "We Miss You" is not a good idea to reintroduce yourself into a horrifically toxic environment.

Amid all of the ridiculousness, one can't forget the human element. Even during the slow takeover of all of Earth's business and culture by leguminous phalluses. Easily the most heartwarming scene set in a gladiatorial area that I've ever read, to say nothing of the creative placement of several other characters in the EqG setting. Thank you for it.

One of the best stories of the BCU.
I loved it 💛

You know, someday, someone will write a BCU RGRE fic, and the two will collide with the thunderous explosion of a matter-antimatter reaction, obliterating this website and opening the Seventh Seal and signaling the end of this doomed timeline, as the sin-shadowed moon eclipses the super blood wolf sun and locusts swarm from the thawed Arctic and the Browns win a Super Bowl.

Until then, we’ll have the glory that is this story. I love it.

Implying that the BCU is the opposite of RGRE is the highest praise.


I'm of the opinion that almost any comedy can be improved by sprinkling a little seriousness in there.

I get what you're saying, but solitary confinement ain't such a fun time either. Everyone needs someone.

Thanks! Honestly, the use of other characters was kinda fun: Cheese Sandwich in particular was basically suggested to me as a joke, but I like to think I made it work.

D'aww, thanks!

I'm gonna have to agree with Fuzzy's response here: I really don't mind being called the opposite of RGRE.

Thanks for all your comments!

I... well... uh... :rainbowderp:

I'm sorry, words escape me right now. Needless to say this is one of the stranger stories I've ever read. Also really kept me guessing at what was going on from beginning to end. Is this some distorted post apocalyptie Sunset Survived? No. Is Beanis some sinister megacorp that she got caught up in and is trying to escape? No. Just... what. What all the way through. :rainbowhuh:

And for that I loved it. :rainbowwild:


Oh, gosh. Is this the first Beanis story you've read? Honestly, you guessed what was going on fairly well, considering.

Anyway, head on over to this group and you can find the series that gives this story its context. Thanks for reading!

“Let’s go, you furry fandom jackass!”


i forgot how good this was. seriously, this might be the best fic in the whole group. it makes you laugh, it makes you cry/tear up, and it's just a well written story. take as much pride from this one as you can :pinkiesmile:

When I find enough braincells to spare for the task, you're next.


I look forward to it.

I want you to know the 'we're not barbarians at blood dome' is pure comedy. It was amazing in 300, it's amazing here.

There is more I want to comment on, but I'm falling asleep. I'll continue later.

You write a fucking FABULOUS fight scene. Action is hard to do without becoming confusing or just boring. Pacing action is a hell of a task in written form, but goddamn do you pull it off. Tossing in asides, thoughts, reactions, some funny lines too is just plain showing off. The fight with Pharynx is extremely well constructed and you should be proud of it.

The bit with Flash and Nambs is also excellent and a very meaty detail to chew on. There are so many good little details in this that build on and move forward the established Beanis Canon Lore. So many to steal from for my next one, thanks for giving me a big platform to land on in a few weeks.



Aww, thanks! I certainly did my best to balance the action, comedy, and drama. Mind you, though, I didn't think that the reactions and stuff were "showing off": I felt like they were integral to making the fight scene work. In any case, though, I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I look forward to what you come up with!

beans are pretty great

Honestly. Look at that stupid bastard, with his Astidas-branded armor and helmet. Armor! And he was defiling the traditional pre-match brags by talking about his sponsors!

Sunset needs to go look up the historical gladiators this sort of thing is based on; she'll find that this is way more traditional than the Blood Dome was before.

『Walk Like An Egyptian』

Look, you saw the scene. There's no way in Tartarus she wouldn't call herself that if questioned, and nothing more needs to be said on the matter.

independent of the Beanis stuff (ie: replace it with "Something Sunset doesn't like and Twilight/her old friends are involved in), I love this.
Adding the Beanis stuff on... uh...
I'm confused?

Still love this, I'm just also very confused.

Edit: I am falling down the Beanis rabbit hole.
I'm not seeing the floor.
