A partially insane Knoxville Brony who likes to write. I also edit. And Vector too. Who knew? Not I. If only I could focus on just one...

With the Mane 6 called away from Ponyville on an extended friendship mission, Special Agent Sweetie Drops is forced to wage a one-mare war against an inadvertent ursine apocalypse.

Can Sweetie Drops overcome the well-meaning but self-destructive incompetence of her “Best Friend” and seemingly everypony else in town? And—more importantly—will Berry Punch fulfill her drink order before the bar’s destroyed, too?


This story was written for the: Season 9 Bingo Writing Contest!

My writing prompts includes the following:
Kaiju
Tartarus
S.M.I.L.E.
Chancellor Neighsay
Berry Punch

Many thanks to CoffeeMinion for his editing prowess.

I got Berry, too. Amusing to see our different takes on that prompt.

this is the best smile story ever !!
sadly many fics allude to S.M.I.L.E but this one delivers

Looks like just a normal day in Ponyville.

Mares in Black meet Jurassic Park? Way cool, good, funny, little story! Thanks. :pinkiehappy:

This was just beautiful. Extra props for the ending. :rainbowlaugh:

Congratulations I'm really interested to read it tomorrow XD

It must be Tuesday.

Sweetie Drops are you sure you want to go to that bar? I know this place down the street where the liquor ain't watered down, the service is friendly and the "staff" take care of your every need... did I forget to mention I've got five kids to feed?


Congrats on getting featured! You deserve it.

I think this came together really well. My favorite bit is how it ties into the S8 finale. To me, that’s what elevates this beyond “just” humor and strong characterization.

Pretty good story here. Good job.

double like!

Clever story and chapter titles.

You were having fun with this, weren't you? :raritywink:

This was delightful. I haven't read many of the chapter books, but I'm very glad I picked up The Mares From S.M.I.L.E. if only because it lets me get the references in this fic :pinkiehappy:

I'm entertained that Octavia and Vinyl weren't on your prompt list like I'd assumed; they were just entertaining civilians to cause trouble for the long-suffering Sweetie Drops :rainbowlaugh: I wouldn't have thought an Ursa Major counts as a Kaiju, but according to the notes on the generator they just mean "Any kind of giant creature, whether a character or not. Must be at least as tall as the Ponyville town hall." so you're in the clear. Nice work!

Thank you everypony for all of the comments and votes. I’m so happy this got featured, and it wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for all of you. I just want to say thank you again (and maybe a few more times; it’s so bewildering being featured; I honestly never expected to be featured, ever.)

Yup, Berry seems to get portrayed one of three ways: Drunk, Bartender, and Drunk Bartender. :raritywink:

Thank you, sir. :twilightsmile: I have noticed a disturbing lack of S.M.I.L.E. Fics on the site.

The day Agent Sweetie Drops graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for her? It was Tuesday. :trollestia:

9325702
I would have been upset if at least one person didn’t get the blatant Jurassic Park scene. :raritywink:

9326099
Ummm referring to the flare?

9326229
Thank you very much. I was torn between endings and just decided to do both. :pinkiecrazy:

9326435
I hope you enjoy it. :twilightsmile:

9326647
Thank you, I appreciate your praise and your Total Recall reference, my friend. :twilightsmile:

This one was like Taco Sonata in that it miraculously came together from a series of random prompts. I wonder if that’s my true strength; my ability to take random prompts and tie them all together into a coherent, or at least semi-coherent storyline...

9326768
Thank you, Sir. :twilightsmile:

9326887
Double-thanks! :twilightsmile:

When I first read your comment, I thought you had said something quite different from “titles.” Possibly due to how much of your work I peruse. :twilightsheepish: Thank you for the compliments on both, I came up with one, my editor came up with the other.

I love to alliterate. It another story I’m currently writing, I have about 20 alliterations (all connected, not 20 separate ones) into a single paragraph. :pinkiecrazy:
I’ve read a copy online, and I desperately want to own a copy. I love the whole concept for it.
I love the dichotomy between the two couples; any time I get the chance to show off one, I invariably show the other so you can see how their similarities accentuate their differences.
Yeah, I was really strapped for ideas when I saw “Kaiju;” even when I saw that they meant it only had to be a creature taller than City Hall. I was looking through every mythology source I could find for something that was big that wasn’t a classic “giant.” Then I remembered the Ursa Minor was the size of a house, and the Ursa Major is rivaled in size only by the full strength Tantabus.

This one was like Taco Sonata in that it miraculously came together from a series of random prompts.

Hee. That's what I'm finding with my entry for this contest too. At first I spent quite a while looking for ideas that tie together about three of the elements of my prompt and wondering how on Equestria I can fit in the others. Then it hit me at last: a fantastic setup that leaves all five disparate elements fitting together perfectly, without seeming too stretched or unnatural, prompted by something one of my characters says in canon, and even providing me the setup for a truly awesome/awful pun. So now I can't help but write it and it should be only a few weeks before it's up here for people to enjoy.

I guess what I'm saying is, I think this contest is particularly prone to making people find these crazy concepts that happen to seamlessly tie together all these diverse concepts; I'm glad it worked for you and I'm looking forward to seeing what else other entrants put together!

“Now get out of here before you make my insurance premiums go up again!”

She still has insurance on a building in Ponyville? I call that being ahead of the game.

In any case, best Season 8 finale fic I've ever read. Thank you for it, and best of luck in the judging.

What’s funny is that it wasn’t originally planned. But then, while looking back over Mares of S.M.I.L.E., I saw where they said that the Breezies and Tirek were just coverups, and... I was inspired. :pinkiecrazy:

Tyvm. :twilightsmile:

Always so much chaos surrounding SMILE and its associated mares. Delightful.

Always loved these dynamics. Never change, Lyra.

Great fun.

9444055
The one thought I put in there for Bon Bon—the one about her running towards danger, while Lyra—I always think of their dynamic like that. :pinkiecrazy:

9444240
The laugh I made when reading that line was wholly unattractive.

“No, but do you know what this is?” Bon Bon raised her MPRD; Neighsay and the other theatre patrons stared at the esoteric device. Then the MPRD flashed, followed by a high pitched whine as it recharged its magic-capacitor.

This was a pretty interesting story and finally somebody use the Lyra and Bonbon from smile story which a lot of people did not use much but this was a really good story to say nice job

10522573
Yup. That’s essentially what it is.

10522590
Thank you much. :twilightsmile:

Bon Bon looked Neighsay in his dazzled eyes. “You’re at the Ponville School of Friendship to view the highly-talented substitute teachers Twilight left performing a spectacular music recital. Princess Twilight and her highly-qualified friends saved you from a rampaging Ursa. You want to go home now because—” Ugh, think, Sweetie Drops… “—because you’re embarrassed that you failed to act in a crisis situation. Yes; that’s it. Now go home and think about how other ponies are more heroic than you!”

Neighsay started to cry as he trotted off.

This part kinda reminds me of, When was the last time Neighsay cried? And Sweetie Drops kinda sicked burned him a lot. A LOT

10959314
I honestly don’t recall him ever crying in the show. I think that’s why I had him cry now, the memory scrambler and the bad directions broke him. :trollestia:

10959332
LOL, my friend will be laughing at this
