It is a known fact that different universes have different time constants; that is, while one universe may experience a second, a different one might experience two. This causes a very large temporal drift between universes where, more often than not, the season doesn't even match up, let alone the day. However, in this holiday season, everyone's holidays are lining up perfectly. The Emperor of Mankind wants in on this.

Join the ponies, humans, daemons, and other creatures for a look at many different expressions of the holiday spirit.

Part of the Songs of the Spheres continuity - a Christmas/Holiday special! Takes place after chapter 073 - The Hunger for Games.

-GM, master of Nirvana.

Emperor has a Text to Speech Device?

9363064
Yes. It even says text-to-speech device when you meet him in-story.

-GM, master of mice.

Well, it was a wild ride, but hey... I'm just passing through...

Magical spaceship drives causing unusual weather on dead planets? What is this, The Maretian? Because if so, Mark Watney's probably in better shape in this timeline. :raritywink:

Ah, the key to orkish diplomacy: Don't try to make them stop fighting, just point them in the right direction.

Of course they’d all happen on the same day. It’s so unlikely it had to happen eventually.

Good, she's learning.

Oh, hey, Director Storm still exists. Good for him. And he does love Christmas.

There is something surreally hilarious about an ascended Sunset talking to the God-Emperor of Mankind, though some of that is on my end. :derpytongue2:

“It’s Exmas is what it is.”
Flutterfree raised an incredulous eyebrow. “You probably shouldn’t be passive-aggressively quoting C. S. Lewis.”

Huh. Uncultured swine that I am, I thought that was a Futurama reference. And now I want to see Rev versus robot Santa.

When was the last time you felt particularly patriotic on Hearth's Warming?

Not exactly a fair comparison given how Equestria got folded into larger multiversal supernation.

oh by Azathoth’s second left ventricle, not this prick.

Oh no...

Overall, he gave off a ‘dark Egyptian space god’ vibe.

Oh, good, it's just Ahriman. I was worried it was going to be Cato Sicarius.

“Because you value the opinion of others even if they differ from your own?” Corona suggested.

:rainbowlaugh: That may be the funniest line in this story thus far.

... Oh my word, she warped herself into Veggie Tales. You absolute madman.

Jotaro shook his head. “Star Platinum would not be able to keep Pinkie at bay.”

I truly do fear that when the truth about Eve comes out, Pinkie will turn against the MU. That... would be bad. :twilightoops:

YOU SHOULD GET HER A GIFT OF MEMORIES – ONE TO REMIND HER OF ALL THE GOOD TIMES. ALL THE CONNECTIONS YOU ALREADY HAVE.

Well, that's uncanny. I just read a Jinglemas story with the exact same concept.

“…I kind of want to play this game,” Corona said. “It sounds interesting.”
“Oh hell no here we go…” Kitten moaned.
“I WOULD BE ENTHRALLED TO TEACH YOU…”

Later...

"This is literally Yu-Gi-Oh."
"LIES. VILEST SLANDER."
"We've found universes where ka itself revolves around this game. Trust me. It's Yu-Gi-Oh."
"I DID NOT MAKE YOU FESTIVITY ADVISOR FOR YOU TO BETRAY ME LIKE HORUS'S SUNBURNT HORSE DAUGHTER."
"Can we play Magic: the Gathering instead?"
"ONLY IF YOU WIN THIS NEXT ROUND."

There's something beautifully ironic in a minister starting a literal war on Christmas.

Burgerbelle held up a ‘to be continued’ sign shaped like an arrow.

(Looks at comments)
Well, someone has to do it.

That’s all Eve needed to know. “All right. I’ll take it. What is it?”
“Well, the first step is driving you mildly insane.”

:facehoof: Couldn't have at least waited to talk to Flutterfree about it, could she?

By trying to show them how wrong their celebration is with angry force, it rarely changes anything and… and it just ruins the holiday for them.

Aaaand now you've recontextualized the comic I reviewed today. Seriously, when did you bug my house? :raritywink:

In any case, wonderful stuff, from the reconciliation to the introduction of Galaxa Immaterium in all its Bruvaly glory. Thank you for it, and Merry Christmas. :twilightsmile:

Welp, this got feature somehow, im glad this story is getting more attention, anyway, now to the he next chapter : D

but also four scouting, research, first contact, and occasionally calculated
HE GOT MY NUMBER FIVE MINUTES AFTER YOU GAVE ME THA TPHONE
I’m again stuck by how surreal all this is
Storm caught everyone with a telekinesis crystal, throwing them back
how much you were Scrooging up, but I’m glad your back

1. For.
2. That phone.
3. Struck.
4. Every one, two words in this case because pies. Food pies, not Pinkie Pies.
5. You're.

Well the Emperor's parts were good, but I could honestly skip the rest of it. Leave it to a Starlight to utterly miss the point of something.

I have no idea what I just read but it was hilarious and heartwarming thank you. Merry Christmas

A literal war on Christmas... *groan*

“…Am I being tested? Why? What am I supposed to learn?”

You're supposed to learn to stop being the worst pony.

Funny moments in this fanfic (Cosmo WAAAGHing with the orks, ...) but I feel it is odd to take the parody of an universe in a mix of universes who aren't parodies...

9759158
I've taken lots of parodies as genuine universes. The Pony abridged series and the world of the Flats are the most prominent, followed by this one.

-GM, master of pairs.

9759298
It's ok, I would just have preferred a non-parody Warhammer 40k universe.
While I'm a fan of W40k, I have to admit I don't have much interest in the TTS Emperor parody.

9759305
I chose TTS for a few reasons
1) I enjoy it a bit more. The lore is mostly identical and yet I find it much more enjoyable when taken in slight jest.
2) If the Emperor didn't have a way to communicate Merodi Universalis would probably have just left a standard 40k universe for dead. I wanted them to have at least some reason to stick around and try to fight / help the universe.
-GM, master of riches.

9759307
That makes me think of a Starcraft's parody, Carbot Animations... how it would go if Eve tried to meet them.

"Greetings. I am Evening Sparkle, Overhead of Relations for Merodi Universalis."
"..."
"... Hello?"
"Not enough minerals!"
