A novice writer who one day plans to genetically modify himself to grow wings. Because wings are awesome and I hate gravity. (Avatar belongs to racer437 on Deviantart)


This story is a sequel to How to Date a Princess

The Pony of Shadows has been set loose on Equestria once again!

Now if only Flash could focus on THAT instead of having to try and NOT punch Star Swirl the Bearded in the face! It would HELP if he stopped criticizing his mare friend for TWO FREAKING MINUTES!

This is going to be a loooooooooooong day...

UPDATE: OH MY LUNA, I GOT FEATURED!!! I honestly can't believe this happened AGAIN!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (02/14/2019)

Sorry if the cover art isn't quite related, but it's the only one that I thought would fit.

Also, Happy Valentines Day :heart:

Alternate tags:
Don't punch him. Don't punch him. DON'T PUNCH HIM! Remembering to try and avoid punching. Epic make-out memory. Punching the REAL bad guy elation. Still not punching. Argument. More argument. Lightning. ONE JOB!!! THUNK! Apologies. Still in trouble.

You sir, just made my day. :twilightsmile:

This was pretty fun. XD
But, one thing, it's "pegasi" not "pegesi". Just the one e in there.

Awww...that was so sweet. This is why I love this series. True heart and great comedy.

Glad I could make you smile :twilightsmile:

CURSE YOU SPELLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Thank you for finding that)
Glad you still enjoy it :twilightsmile:

You know, I think the thing with the nobles apparently hating Twilight would work better if it had any foundation in the show. The only instance I remember was regular ponies reading the Friendship Journal and complaining.

Hey, I'm seeing this featured right now!

Before I read this, I must know: Will people get confused when they talk to both Flash Sentry and Flash Magnus?

I only use Flash Magnus once, so I don't think so

Maybe, but given my earlier stories, I think this alternate universe has at least a little bit of foundation for it. Thous maybe I should do some sort of back story for the nobles, one with Celestia dealing with their nonsense until luna decides to just chuck some of them out of the castle...literally :derpytongue2:

I...don't see it...Did I miss it? :fluttershysad:

Still, if it was featured, I may just lose my mind...If I already haven't :pinkiecrazy:

Do you have view mature on? Its probably not there if view mature is on.

I did not even realize that was a feature :facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof:
BUT YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! FEATURED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!JEdgouhfpuiadhfb iuwdfhpbidajfbhdipubfcpiuefgpuwiefgohwgfwebcpuiwenhfupwehfiuwrhgfiuwrgqfpiuwgrpiuhwrpiughapsiugfipushgiuprhgipuerwgwe (my forehead says hi) :pinkiecrazy:

I'm glad you and your forehead are happy.:pinkiehappy:

These stories are some of the best written on the site :pinkiehappy:

A hilarious read as always.

Just a fight Obliteration
NO one cares any more



Amazing as always :rainbowlaugh:

That....... was........... so............... AWESOME!
I mean OHMYGOSH! That was so hilarious! :twilightsmile:
I laughed so much that I fell of my bed like 5 times
Flash was sooo funny
Your just make my day, bro!:raritywink:

No problem :twilightsmile:
If you haven't seen them, there are three other stories in this series, with 'How to Date a Princess' as the first in the timeline

I really love the candid response Flash made to Starswirl.

Flash Sentry, well done. Star Swirl needed that reality check.

When in doubt, call in the sassy guard with the silly internal monologs :rainbowwild:

My head cannon is that a Nightmare is actually a defense mechanism meant to prevent psychological damage should an Alicorn ever reach a mental breaking point by locking the main mind away and forcing all the dangerous emotions into dark magic and away from the main soul of the pony. Say what you want about nightmare moon, at least she was able to think clearly and plan ahead, even if it was evil, though there was a possibility that Luna could have been possessed and forced into a nightmare form. Ehh, it's all just speculation :rainbowhuh:

I think their rage shift is more just like a unicorns, while an Earth Pony's rage shift has them make miniature earthquakes with each step while also possibly increasing in height, possibly until they are double in size

Or... you could not give in to that tired trope and do something original with them. Just sayin'.

Maybe... I’ll need to think on it though, as I have no idea what to do for it at the moment

That's okay. It's really only a pet peeve of mine.

I don't mind. Any advice is appreciated :twilightsmile:

Man, yeah. That hit the right spot! Ever since that episode, I have been shaming Starswirl for being such a JERK to Twilight. Thx for setting him right.

This was gold. Thank you.

I had the same feeling. And thus, this was born!!!! The end.

Glad you liked it:twilightsmile:

Glad we hold some unsaid truths in Equestria to heart, then.
Though, I have no clue what 'Rage Shift' is. I mean, I get it is some sort of magic triggered by an emotional reaction like being furiously angry but is there something more? Like, I noticed it mentioned that it's pegasi typically don't rage shift...

Maybe like that one time, Twilight's mane caught on fire because she was so angry over Pinkie Pie's Pinkie Sense being unexplainable by SCIENCE?

Exactly. Rage shift refers to the point when a pony becomes so enraged that they literally catch fire. I use it in the prequel to this story ‘How to date a princess’ but I think the name was coined by another author here on the site, but I can’t quite remember who :derpytongue2:

Oh, thank you. That clears it up.

OH MY GOODNESS I LOVED THIS SO MUCH!!!!! Starswirl SOOOOO needed that!

Yes. Yes he did :derpytongue2:
Glad you liked it

Mission accomplished then :pinkiecrazy:

Because he’s pissed off and not thinking clearly and likely wants to make his thoughts known even if there was a more peaceful solution

Heh. Considering what Starswirl pulled in the season opening, it's a good thing he didn't strike back.
Flash probably doesn't even realise how dangerous that could've been.

Remember though Star Swirl was likely still weakened due to his time in Limbo. Hooray for accidental plot convenience :derpytongue2:

Maybe it reminded you of the windfall island mini game in Wind Waker with the guy who yells SPLOOOSH and KABOOOOOOM every time you play his game? I do so love that goofy guy

That comes from the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
