Everything is awesome!

As a member of a royal family, it was always expected that Flurry Heart would come into a leadership role at some point in her life. But nopony could ever have expected it would be while she was still at a young age, as is the case when her parents are away on official business one day. And so begins the glorious reign of Flurry, apparently.

Well... that does like some things that a child would like to do.

All hail Flurry Heart, heroes rise again.....

NTS: Have Spike and Gabby foalsit Flurry.

What is that all?

Okay, this was so ridiculous and funny! I love it! All hail Princess Flurry Heart! Future ruler of the Crystal Empire!

Poor Sunburst, though...

Question: Is the Captain or the Cadet supposed to be Flash Sentry or just another random pair of Royal Guards?

This was a REALLY funny one-shot. The exchanges, characterizations and humor were all well done in all the right places. Though I DEFINITELY feel sorry for Sunburst. And, yeah, Shining, I would actually go for a FULL TEAM of babysitters (a group of SIX OR MORE) next time rather than just TWO sitters. Though I do agree with the reviewer that said that it might make for a good bonding experience for Spike and Gabby to both be part of that team (since Spike is basically Flurry's foster uncle).

I was almost expecting them to come back to Flurry actually doing something with the tax laws...

Yeah, same

But what greeted them was no disaster or catastrophe, but instead a scene they honestly had no words for. A veritable parade of guards, all dressed as frogs, dancing in front of Flurry, who was comfortably sitting in the royal throne, giggling and clapping merrily. To one side of the chamber was a mountain of soft toys, all looking like they'd just been ordered in, while on the other side were was a buffet being set up that consisted of nothing but ice cream and candies.

Nothing stranger than what you see at a brony convention. :facehoof:

Yes, it was hilarious seeing Flurry Heart be ruler of the Empire, but the fact Sunburst has obviously a very serious concussion and could potentially have permanent brain damage...kind of spoils the fun, if you ask me. :pinkiesad2: If there was a little snippet near the end just to say that Sunburst is going to make a full recovery, that would have been better.

Seems to be just a random pair, as Flash's designation might not be openly shown...

And this is why you make sure the chain of command has more than one link. For shame, Shining.

All told, this definitely could have gone worse. And if Flurry were any older, it probably would have. Brilliant work. Thank you for it.

This actually had me cracking up. Princess Flurry Heart as a baby is freaking adorable.

Which only means her awkward teenage years are going to be hell for EVERYONE involved...

They're lucky Flurry Heart is just a baby. If she were old enough to understand and speak words she'd be dangerous.

I'd very much like to see this baby translator in action. :trixieshiftleft:

Well, it could certainly be worse:

Anyway, good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

And it turns out that not only are the new tax laws fairer, but they are also more streamlined and cut through a lot of the red tape involved in collecting them.

...giving out hugs to everyone who's your friend!
Nothing to stop you now,
No parents to bring you down,
When there's nothing left to lose,
You win!


Sorry, I just recognized the song referenced there and just had to keep it going. :rainbowlaugh:

It seems nopony caught the Doctor Whooves joke, shame.

All hail her royal cuteness!
This was really funny.:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::pinkiehappy:

Plot twist: Flurry was actually asking about the Empire's relationship with Equestria and whether or not it would be beneficial to officially invade and overthrow Celestia and Luna using the mystical power of dancing frog soldiers, toys, candies, and baby alicorn giggles.

Clearly, they've already begun amassing weaponry and training in the art of the dancing frog.

It is only a matter of time, now.

I caught it! I just thought it was so obvious it didn't need pointing out. :rainbowlaugh:

9831545
I caught it! The Doctor knows so many languages...

"Hail to thee, Princess Flurry Heart, ruler of the Crystal Empire!"

By the gods, Flurry Heart planned this all along! It's a coup! :pinkiegasp:

9831916
And no one will ever believe it.

In Crystal News today, new leader Flurry somehow the worst ever politician since Ronald Thump. Making the soldiers do the craziest incoherent things. In other news, Chrysalis was captured disguised as Cadance again, though, soldiers aren't sure why they found her hiding in the Shining Armor's bed and also another Sombra attack nearly happened when somepony apparently forgot to turn on the defenses because Flurry wanted teeth on the Crystal Heart. The Heart was retrieved and Sombra quickly vaporized once again.

Perhaps they should ask Sunset Shimmer? It would be hilarious.

The best kind of preposterous. I loved it!

To one side of the chamber was a mountain of soft toys, all looking like they'd just been ordered in, while on the other side were was a buffet being set up that consisted of nothing but ice cream and candies. Beside the throne, unaware of all this, was Sunburst, who was still knocked out, with his nurse doing all she could to try and wake him, though sadly without success. Cadance and Shining looked to this, then to the side, where the page was just trotting in beside them.

This is why you hire competent translators. :ajbemused: And why you don't leave children in charge.

Indeed though to be fair they didn't even hire the translator they were going to since he was all the way in Ponyville. They just went with the first thing on the top of their head that makes sense for a baby to order...like dancing frog soldiers apparently for her amusement. XD

Please, Sunburst got off easy there. You should remember the beating Twilight took back in season one because of Derpy and her "Sorry my bad." thing. So many things falling on Twilight's head in succession, including I think a piano and anvil and she's still fine somehow.

Well, they wanted somepony in charge. They got somepony in charge. They only have themselves to blame.

Cute and funny. Thanks for this.

Interestingly, the US government takes this a step further and has what is called "the designated survivor."

If something or someone were to try and kill all the members of government in one location, the designated survivor is one person within the chain of command who is hidden away to ensure that there is a constitutional successor.

I am sure the day will come when Flurry will be a great ruler with a long and healthy rule. But that day won’t come for sometime, at least not until everyone can understand her.

9830586 Yeah, I expected the final scene to be the guard captain wearing reading glasses, pointing out some deductions of questionable value to Flurry, to which she responds by drawing all over the paper with a crayon in her mouth.

I dunno, personally I think that "Make the Guards Dress Like Frogs and Dance Around" would be a good addition to the regular schedule.

This story is absolutely adorable! Flurry in charge is a cute idea although I'd like to see her rule for longer, such as a few days.

Could you imagine if things actually turned out well.:rainbowlaugh:

"Well, I hear there's a stallion all the way down in Ponyville who speaks baby. Some scientist guy. Maybe we could ask him?"

Heh. I get that reference.

Either that, or something about a banana. He may have paraphrased

Cute. Alt ending Candace says you have all done well to worship the young princess and dance for her pleasure.

I find it hilarious that no one's commented on the fact the Captain was given a choice of frog costumes or tax laws and chose the frog costumes.
