The Storm King has returned to Equestria, fully restored and stronger than ever! This time, he's made sure to account for a few important 'meddling ponies' in his plan alongside the princesses and other figures of power.
With the Bearers of the Elements trapped far away from Equestria, how will they ever save their home?
Well, the way they always do: With strange new friends and the powerful forces that have guided them all along.

My final entry for the Feghoof Festival.

I thought these entries were all only going to be one chapter long. Please respond to this comment.

I don't think there's a rule against it, so long as I stay under the word limit.

Ha! And of course it would be a gnome. An island is a chunk of earth, after all.

And apparently you're telling an actual story with a feghoot in each chapter? Very nice. Looking forward to more.

Figured I'd give it a shot. Have to find a way to stand out from the other entries, after all. Glad you're enjoying it.

Oof. That's terrible. Not even enjoyably terrible. After all, Blueblood's failing was ego, not dullness. Still, interesting concept with the pigman mercenaries, and I assume the shrimp are the setup for a brick joke. This is definitely headed in an interesting direction.

Yeah... this one fought me. I didn't want to have just one chapter with no pun in it, but I just couldn't make anything fit cleanly. Even this joke started as boorish but then the second half fell apart.

Might have wanted to rearrange things so it was the last line, but still lovely stuff on the wordplay and narrative fronts.

Honestly I think I would have liked this even more without the cringe ending each chapter.

Poko?

Reference to another author's work. An incredibly potent alcohol, horrendously expensive, and just about the only thing that can get a dragon drunk.

There's definitely an arguement to be made for a single-chapter epic. This is definitely the best pun in the story, especially given the thematic connections. But even as is, this was a very fun read. Thank you for it, and best of luck in the judging.

Loved this, thank you for such an awesome entry into the contest! I hope you win.

Thanks for the love! I doubt I'll win (really fierce competition) but it was fun nonetheless!
