You'll never understand a pony until you walk a mile in their horseshoes. Or more appropriately, until a magical goddess forces you to switch bodies with the other in an effort to force the lesson upon you. That's right, its a body swap fiction! Starring everyone's favorite musical ponies, Vinyl and Octavia! (Partially narrated by Princess Luna)

Chapters (11)
Comments ( 350 )

Deciding to do the AN boring stuff down here, because I'm a rebel and I live on the edge n shit!
But no seriously, there's not a lot to be said. Although I must say I've never seen this done before, but if it has oh well.
Shoutout to nobody in particular, because I'm a recluse on the site and have no friends/prereaders, and all my real life friends aren't this deep into the fandom, those that aren't haters that is.

Feel free to leave your thoughts on this, and I'll more than likely respond because I love each and every one of you.
And yes, before anyone asks, the actual body swap happens in the next part. Blame my love for a tiny bit of buildup and character development before throwing them to the fate of a crazy alicorn goddess.

I love this! It's funny and interesting. Please write more very soon. :yay:

I'll be Your Friend:pinkiecrazy:
This was also a very good story but I was surprised Ponies had Cuss words.
I don't care really I just didn't expect it.:pinkiegasp:
So Keep up the good work!

"Isn't the point of a trout to weed out those who aren't cut out for the job?" Wow, I didn't know trouts were so musically relevant. Crafty little fishes they are :pinkiecrazy:

Anywho, this looks interesting. Octavia going for the blood seems a bit too much, but I'm sure we'll get an explanation for it when we look deeper in the personal insecurities and all that. Thanks for dropping the link to Nightmare Night btw, never heard it before.

well that was a nice read, waiting to see what happens next. Big Fan of this type of storys

Heh, interesting story so far. I can't wait to see what happens next, I doubt it will be pleasant for either mare but humorous none the less.


Sounds interesting, but I don't really tend to read incomplete stories until at least 3 chapters have been written. I'll be keeping an eye on this, though.

All of my yes. I'll be watching this one carefully. :rainbowwild:

You're quite welcome for the link. As far as insecurities from Octavia are concerned, it'll become clear soon enough. In later chapters. So the only way to answer that question is to keep reading :trollestia:

MUAHAHA! I'm a crafty bastard.

Depends what you mean by "pleasant," but as for humorous. Yes, I will try nonetheless.

Well I suppose it's better than nothing :rainbowwild:
Don't worry though, I've actually had this story in my mind for weeks, so several chapters are still in the wings.

Also, not to spam anyone but more to complain, this was supposed to be approved by 5 my time before I went to work. I was hoping for it to see a few more people but noooooooo, this was approved an hour ago :flutterrage:

I was hoping this would be up during peak viewing time but oh well, not gonna stop my writing.

Okay, was that Mic the Microphone, Wooden Toaster, and LivingTombstone? I'm not up on the music scene since I'm more a reader but I think that was who was walking in with Vinyl.

I likes this and the idea appeals to my odd sense of humor. My only question is why no Lyra to make it worse?

1088578 I shall honor this gift. The future generations will hear the legends of the legendary Gift of Fucks to Give you have bestowed upon me :trollestia:

1088745 Well, we wouldn't want all the secrets to be unveiled on the first chapter, would we? That would be no fun. Tho now I'm wondering if there will be scenes with the parents...

I can neither confirm nor deny that allegation, but I will ask you to stay out of my head.

To answer your question, yes that was they. And there might be more of them later on. I decided to put them in so Vinyl had a crowd to hang with like Octavia had hers.


Well it makes sense to me!
As for Lyra, I don't have a place for her. Yet. Who knows, maybe she'll end up sitting on a bench somewhere for like 0.5 seconds.

No complaints here. I think they would hang out with her if they were there. I just wanted to make sure I knew who they were since I'm usually terrible at placing things like that.

Well you hit it on the nose, and I will take this time to recommend their music to you, as they are quite talented. Them along with Archie, Aviators, OmniPony, PinkiePieSwear, Alex S, Eurobeat Brony, MandoPony, and ArtAttack.
Yeah I'm a big fan of the music community :twilightsmile:

1089195 Aww, but there are so many buttons and bright lights to play with! :pinkiecrazy:

...oh good, it's not my mind then. My mind is full of pony, and I'm perfectly ok with it :pinkiecrazy:

ok, when you told me about this, I have to admit I was skeptical... but if each chapter is as well written as this one, this will be an amazing story dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Colgate_beam.png

Well it's about time you showed back up! And I have to ask where you got your Colgate emote, because I wanna steal it

Best intro to a story I have ever read. I can not wait for more and there better be more.

Once again you make a brilliant story that combines a sense of humor with romance. Keep up the good work.

You flatter me too much, really :twilightblush:
I just write whatever crazy idea comes to me in that blissful land that I find myself in while pushing shopping carts at work

1095771 What can I say, I like your writing style. Many of my best ideas come from the blissful land that I find myself in when I am working as well.

Yay an update! I want to apologize for the huge delay between chapters. I even cut this one down from its intended length slightly just so I can keep this thing going (but don't worry, I didn't skimp out on quality). I want to apologize again because updates will be infrequent at best, as this semester's classes have dumped a huge load of reading on me. For those of you who know about Mr. David McColough (author of Pulitzer Prize winning biographies Truman and John Adams), I am reading two biographies written by him, and the biography of Oppenheimer for one class. For those of you who don't know about those books, it means I have about 1800 pages of reading for one class, and that's not counting the papers and other readings I have to do for the other 4 classes :pinkiesick:

But I will continue writing this in what little free time I have, because I really do enjoy this story and I'm pretty sure you want to see what happens next. God forbid that I throw this away just because of school. I need some way to stay sane after all dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Twilight_crazy.png

But yeah, tl;dr school is fucking my free time in the ass, so no guarantees of when the next chapter will come. Though if you do follow my blog posts I will try to keep you all updated. dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Octavia_plot.png <-- gratuitous ass is gratuitous.

1216706 Well this much is obvious, but still the question is is it un welcome?
Nah I'm enjoying it

Curses! Someone found out where I got the idea from! ABANDON STORY!:twilightoops:


Nah I'm just screwin' with ya

Heh heh heh, what a card! :pinkiehappy:
Can't wait for the next chapter.
Well, actually I can. That just means I've enjoyed what I've seen so far and expect to see something good in the future.

Well it'll be a bit, if you read my author comment after chapter 2 =/
School blows mate, especially taking a couple 400 level college classes
But I've already started the next one, so it's not like progress hasn't been made

And so it begins. And now Octavia will realize that Vinyl is more than a party pony after seeing the terrible conditions she lives in

Finally had time to finish this chapter. Hope you all like it, because it took some valuable free time to do dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Vinyl_sad.png

Also, is it wrong that I think of the jokes first, then write the rest of the story around them? Nah, it's all good dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Spitfire_lazy.png

Now to drown myself in music dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Octavia_chair.png

i absolutely love this, and cant wait to see more. :pinkiehappy:

this is absolutely the most hilarious fic i've read all month.
if you're gonna keep this up, you'd better be ready to pay the medical bill for my broken ribs!

Ah, the brilliance. It will be fun to see how their relationship develops over time...:pinkiehappy:

( •_•)>⌐■-■

Oh, the adventures to come.:rainbowlaugh:

"Princess, I have one that's been bugging me since this thing started. If Octy and I were to bang right here, right now...would it be gay? Or the highest form of clopping possible?"

Princess Luna facehoofed, while Octavia took the liberty of smacking Vinyl upside the head.

you know thats a really good question, too bad we will never see the answer to that

YEAH! DJ Pon-3 in the HOUSE!!:moustache:
