While the first half was definitely hilarious, I actually think it would have been funnier if Starlight was right and everything did just blow over.

Maybe it would after Twilight returns, I just didn't get to that part of the story. It's the kind of thing where I prefer the reader to use their imagination, as to what would happen next... :scootangel:

You could also add Rainbow, Pinkie.... pretty much the rest of the Mane 6 as wanted criminals as well.

Rainbow did commit a terrorist act by blowing up the Weather Factory.

God, I just went over the whole show and the Mane 6 and Spike have numerous criminal felonies to their names.

If you really wanted to push it, you could have Twilight busted for multiple homicides in Too Many Pinkie Pies.

9672183
True. But 'almost destroying the world via time travel' kind of overshadows all of that. Remember though, this fic is just a bit of fun, and so is not supposed to be thought about too deeply. Kudos to you for making the point, though. :raritywink:

9672207
I know. I was just pointing out that this story could be taken in so many hilarious directions, if one thinks about it. :pinkiecrazy:

Twilight: I'm Twilight Sparkle, the princess of Friendship, and I demand you release my friend Starlight from custody.

Officer: Hmmm, Twilight Sparkle. That name sounds familiar. Oh right, we have an outstanding warrant for you for the disappearances and suspected murder of 30 ponies. Come along quietly now. :pinkiecrazy:

This amused me greatly. Well done

9672219
Yeah, Twi's mass murder body count goes higher than even that - though would ascension invalidate prior criminal records? Hmm.

I love this story! Where do you come up with this stuff!:rainbowlaugh:

9672403
Thanks, that's always the No 1 aim when you write a comedy. :twilightsheepish:
9672689
At a guess, I'd say a VERY sleep deprived mind. :ajsleepy:

Starburst chuckled mirthfully at her foalhood friend,

Little error there.

9672781
...Which is now fixed. Cheers. :duck:

9672183 There are also the parts we didn't see where Spikezilla ate several dozen ponies alive. :fluttershbad:

9672183 It's good to be a friend of the 'king'.

You get away with murder as much as you want! And you get to throw anyone who mildly annoys you into the dungeon for completely fabricated heresies and stuff!

Ah... I did so enjoy the Dark Ages. Lived through the Black Death, has a pretty good time there! I've seen "The Exorcist" about 67 time, and it keeps getting funnier every single time! :pinkiecrazy:

(Yes, I did see that movie again recently. Last night, in fact.)

"Come quietly, Miss, We can either do this the easy way, or the hard way."

Well actually, Maud could mention how she (albeit unknowingly) told Starlight where to find a rock that could hold the cutie mark of an entire village. So she was already a sort of accomplice. If she wants to go down that route anyway.

9673333
A tenuous charge at best. I don't think she could go to jail for accidentally introducing Starlight to the village. Still, an interesting idea, if she wanted to pretend that was the plan all along... :moustache:

Oh Maud... I love it when she shows her naughty side.

9673333
Are we sure, though. She did go on later about how with the right rock, you could take over Equestria.

9672183
That could be an entire AU. "The felon 6" lol

Maud's being more forward as of lately.

9674077 9673396
She's in lloovvee :raritywink:


9673673
If such an AU is created, let the records show the roots of it started right here. :moustache:

9674081
Imagine the Mane gang had to deal with Maud's dirty flirting with her boyfriend.

9674102
Mud briar gets turned back. "Why am I covered in viscous clear fluid?"
Maud just smiles mysteriously.

Then the police try and arrest Terramar and Silverstream for some outstanding thing or another.

Together: “Diplomatic Immunity! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

9674081
He'll I would probably write it if I could get someone to edit for me lol

Why is Trixie performing powerful illusion magic - to put on a show purely for entertainment purposes - a crime? Trixie made embellishing claims and some idiots took them literally. She isn't at fault for any damages. Snips and Snails are.

9674081
No...no, I don't think I will.

9674848
Since when has the law been fair? Anyway, as I've said, this fic is just a bit of fun and obviously not convergent with anything that'll happen in canon at all. As long as people enjoy reading it, that's all that matters. :twistnerd:


9674850
It's okay. I'm not sure it would've taken off anyway.... :rainbowhuh:

"Well, I was going to prune Twiggy tonight."

How...how do you ever need to prune a stick? It's a stick, basically the severed limb of a plant or tree, so it's not like it's going to be growing anything new. I mean, if you were to chop off your arm, you wouldn't expect it to keep growing afterwards, would you? :rainbowlaugh:

I don't think I quite buy Starlight being that ignorant of how "the law" works like this, but still a fun story for the lols. :rainbowlaugh:

9675029
A LOT of this story was for the 'lols', including blatantly ignoring the realities of plant growth and possibly over exaggerating Star's naivety of the courts. As long as it made you laugh, I'd say it achieved it's objective. :twilightsheepish:

9675037
It did. Plus I got to make a Lethal Weapon II joke. Nothing can be bad if it involves a Lethal Weapon II joke.

9675141
Hard to argue with that point. :rainbowderp:

"That's her!! The one with the star/spiral on her butt! It doesn't matter that she's changed her manestyle, I'd recognise that smug look of pure evil anywhere!"

But... manestyle!


Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

But why is the police coming just now? Didn't she remove the thing much earlier already?

9677792
Well the way I see it, she got lucky the first time... sadly, the police were a bit more attentive on this occasion. Run Star run! :pinkiegasp:

In Equestria, is a "fake magic act" when you really use magic in your tricks?

9678721
Ever heard of a 'trumped up' charge? :rainbowderp:
