This story is a sequel to Foreign Nationals of Unusual Importance

Each installment is prompted by another story on Fimfiction, which is linked by story card; permission will be sought before posting.

Shiny new diplomat Cookie Pusher lives a complicated life—struggling to carry out what may be the strangest duties in the history of the Foreign Service, yet remaining as much in the background as he can manage. Let’s see if we can make his life even more difficult.

Suggestions for prompt stories are welcome, but no guarantees are offered or implied—including any kind of schedule. No installment should be taken seriously in any way, and new tags may be added as needed.

Many thanks to FanOfMostEverything for both the original inspiration and for kind (and correct) promotional words.

Hit “Popular Stories” the day of publication, woo-hoo!

Oh, this is going to be amazing. And it gives me an excuse to plug another story I forgot to in addition to this one. Eagerly looking forward to more. Glad I could provide the short description.

Alright, I want to see where this megacross fic goes.

Less a mega cross and more a set of what ifs, I think.

If this is gonna be good 😈

So let me understand, a fanfic about reviewing fan fics

Not exactly reviews. More like what if the various fanfics used as prompts happened In the context of the additions to canon shown in Foreign Nationals of Unusual Performance, as well as it’s sequel and semi side story Amphorae.

I recommend those works, and reading them will give you a better idea of what Dave Bryant’s ‘verse (for lack of a better term) than I can typing on the phone

Oh, this is gonna be an awesome story!

Looking forward, with much anticipation, to each new installment!

Ah yes, yes, this is going to be a fun little governmental hiccup. LET US CROSS OVER ALL THE FICS!

If you don't already have this suggestion already, FoME's Oversaturation is pretty much the best alternate world for EQG.

-GM, master of the League of Sweetie Belles.

Shenanigans. Shenanigans EVERYWHERE. Let's do this!

I very much look forward to seeing how this progresses.

I second this. I'd love to see (among other things) Cook's reaction to "Sometime in the next few days, both our universes will collide and disintegrate to its constitute parts."

I love this story! Can’t wait to see more. :twilightsmile:

Ha! Cook's reaction to any of the worlds were Sunset becomes a "god" would be hilarious, if not hard to make fit with the other stores like this one does.

Essentially this will be a series of short pastiches based on the question “What if Cook were around for the events of this other fan story?”

I will do my best to satisfy! I imagine some will be serious and some will be silly, but likely most will make him wonder about his life choices. :trollestia:

9453315 I know you will, but you always never fail to please your readers, me included.

And that sounds good to me.

So, is this involving any story, or just the ones focusing on EQG?

I've a good one, Ranger. At one point, X-COM Sunset gets body-swapped with EQG Sunset and rips up the cafeteria thinking she's been put under some sort of enemy hallucination. She also places a call to the native X-Com, which is amazingly classified, and is certainly unknown to the local Sunset. I'd love to see Cook's perspective as all of the security alerts suddenly trigger.

Theoretically, stories on either side of the portal could be eligible, since Cook does become chargé d’affaires and later ambassador to Equestria. I avoid crossovers, though, so I’m not familiar with that particular story, other than seeing it listed on the front page.

Hmm, a pity that, 'tis an excellent story. In any case, you know you'll be receiving quite a few suggestions now? You certainly won't lack for reading material!

Oh, I could think of a few stories to toss here, if you take recommendations.

I do, though I make no guarantees about following up on them.

Well, here are some favorites:

I will look at them!

Addendum: be aware, though, Cook doesn’t interact with the sirens; they’re out of his purview. He deals only with the Rainbooms and doesn’t meet Rose until Virga.
