Colour Coded Chaos

Hello! I'm an aspiring fanfic writer from southeast England. Hopefully, some of the stuff I post will not be a boatload of dross...


When Applejack's nailed by a falling rowan tree whilst taking part in the Running of the Leaves, she thinks it's bad enough being, well, nailed by a falling rowan tree. But when a raven lands on her windowsill and tells her to go somewhere that sort of doesn't exist in two days or she'll snuff it with a fairly sizeable explosion, and Ditzy Doo gets dragged into the mess, everyone's favourite orange farm pony has to go a-questin'. This can only end well...

I hope to get this into Equestria Daily. If you're reading, ED Prereaders, please send me a note on this account telling me where and when to meet you with the fifty thousand in non-sequential used notes.

Hmmmmm....an epic quest and a buddy movie; I do hope to see this on Equestria Daily soon as it touches all the bases.


Thank you very much! I did send it off to Sethisto for his consideration, and I might not even have to give him the fifty thousand in non-sequential bills! Yay!

"like tentacles on a Japanese schoolgirl. "

I've seen enough hentai... meh forget it ,to obvious :trixieshiftright: :moustache: :trollestia:

It was silly, I enjoyed it.

OK, rather sizeable edit for the good people of Equestria Daily. I hope they post this!:pinkiehappy:

:rainbowlaugh: that was a great epic buddy story, and AppleDash shipping to top it! :twilightsmile:

Was that... a Barrett's Privateers reference?

Quite well written. I merely think Ditzy and Applejack should have gotten together, not ApplexRainbow. :derpysmile:


Yeah, I guess. That said, I love AppleDash shipping. AppleDoo will doubtless come in another story, possibly involving bending spacetime into interesting shapes in order to grow a particularly hardy breed of apple.

"Seriously, AJ, you have a one-track mind when it comes to apples."
"Oh, yeah, Ditzy. Say, isn't that a muffin-"
"Pross-a-cution rests."

Hearing Stan Roger's song in my head made reading this bloody fantastic. Great way to spend the evening!


Absolutely no problem at all; as for folk-tale-ish, that was kind of a given, considering the source material of the crossover. And it kinda proved I can write jokes. And it proved that Applejack can wrassle up herself a 5-Star story without having more popular members of the Mane 6 to play off of. So I'm the most proud of this piece.

At least, until my ongoing pony farce project crash-lands on deviantArt like a sperm whale and a potted petunia. :facehoof:

6885 Hitchikers guide !!! awesome, you do have good taste in books.


Yay! Somepony else got it! I'd love to hear what you thought of the fic, too.

The stallion that gave them pea soup was named Mendel.

Insta five for everything, but especially the genetics joke.



Eeyup. I'm a physics grad but genetics has always been an interest of mine. It's great, to say nothing of powerful.

I'm really glad you liked my story. Means a lot! :pinkiehappy::heart:

The most important thing about this story was that it was fun and happy and mirthful and epic hilarious.

Yeah, we need more of these.


I'm very happy that you liked it, and there are more like it in the works. Next up should be Pinkie-centric with a Gummy who learned to talk... and is similar to one Edmund Blackadder.

i liked the part with derpy doing silly things. :derpytongue2:
in all seriousness, this was pretty much awesome. kinda incredibly random, but hey, foot-wide chocolate chips get an A+ in my book. you should take some stars, good sir :ajsmug:

Derpy doing silly things is all the parts. So I'm glad you liked them!

I remember reading this before, and I loved it just as much then as I do now.
Super awesome story!

Nice of you to say! I just hope you enjoy the rest of the Cycle as much!

"Star. Star. Star. Star. Star. Star. Another star. Space is boring. Wanna go home. Wanna go to Earth. Wanna go to Earth. Wanna go to Earth. Wanna go to Earth."

I love you. Insta-track/five stars.

Thank you very much for all the stars. I can only hope none of them go nova, that sort of thing can really put a crimp on your day...

Completely and utterly hilarious. Especially the Ditzy/Derpy characterization - she's not stupid, she just has great comic timing that's inexorably crept everywhere else!
...also it looks like she spends too much time thinking about EVERYTHING.

Indeed she is. I love the little furball: she deserves a lot better than she's got out of life and it really pains me to see her sad. Which is why I wrote this!

I hope you decide to read The L Words as well; it's kind of a sequel to this, but focussing on Twilight's backstory. Same alternate 'verse, though. Warnings for darkness apply.

That was silly. :pinkiesmile:

I don't like Friend-Shipping, but I'll let it slide this time as your story was so fun!

Not entirely sure where any friendshipping was in that (the ship of the story is quite blatant Appledash), but I'll let it slide since your comment was nice. =]

REALLY liked the way you reinterpreted one of my favorite folk songs with ponies.
Day = made.

Thanks! I hope you like the pseudo-follow-up The L Words just as much (though, since it's a darkfic, hopefully for different reasons). :twilightsmile:

542536 That's actually what I fond first. It looked interesting, so I ended up reading the whole thing. I loved it, then I saw this and freaked.

Oooh, awesome! This fic, incidentally, is why Ditzy has that silver chain on her during Chapter 3 - and also why Applejack and Rainbow Dash are kinda awkward around each other.

Was that a Myth Adventures reference you slipped in there? If so, I approve.

If not, I still approve, this story is amazing. Your writing is absolutely excellent, and I am annoyed that it has taken me this long to read you. More, I say!

A reference to whatnow?

But thank you for the compliments. If you like my style but want to see it applied to sad/dark fics, then please continue reading the Westmareland Cycle in The L Words.

The Robert Aspirin Myth series.

I'll take it from your reaction that no, it is not. dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Luna_apple.png

Hmmm. Well, could you tell me what you thought the reference was so that I can look it up and understand it properly? Also, this totally isn't a thinly-disguised way of hiding that I just want to be able to bluff about it in future. Goodness no. That would be silly.

827066 The bits where AJ gleeps and eebles.

Ah, d'accord. I've always just thought Unsound Effects were intrinsically funny.

Oh, they are. Just the two particular ones you picked got me thinkin'. Also, The L Words is how I found this. Looking forward to seeing more in the future. I know some people can't handle such darkness in their fics, but... I always have had a fondness for the macabre. dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Luna_lolface.png

Zere ist... sumzink uff ze night about hyu...

Fantastic story! :3 And dat Appledash :twilightblush:
