Oh good. You're uploading this here, too. :pinkiehappy:

A very great story, I'll be eagerly awaiting more

Wow was not expecting Fluttershy to be a nomad so what would that make Zecora

All will be shown in time :p

These versions of events seem to go by much faster than the canon ones.

Like, not just taking into account the whole "more realistic" thing, I mean in general.

Though that's not really me complaining, just making an observation.

Right now, the biggest question I have is what this version of Sunburst is like.

And one thing I'd love to see eventually (even if it's just posted as a one shot separate as a bonus) is this version of Starlight somehow meeting her canon counterpart.
Even better would be if they ended up encountering each other multiple times:
Pre-village, post-village pre-reformation, and post-reformation.

I don't know how that would fit with the whole "rewrite the episodes to fit this AU" thing, but I still want to see it

Early episodes was me more warming up but funny enough the reason for pacing differences is due to media.
Animation goes by slower than writing as I could literally write 30min of animation in half the length of one of these stories.
As for the canon x au crossover... you are the 4th person to want that. I don't see the appeal.

Yeah, that can happen sometimes.

As for the appeal of Canon x AU, the appeal mostly just comes from the idea that the two versions of the cast reacting to each other would result in some humorous interactions.

So, Starlight a doormat, Applejack is a borderline con-artist and I can't even describe what the others have become.

Have a like.

Interesting idea to combine Boast Busters and Dragonshy like this.

I know right?
When the episodes are not enough in TF mode I start to combine or get original.
And I will say, the later this series goes on the more of that will happen.
I even have fully original episodes planned.

I mean, I can already think of a few obvious ones that'll need major changes (if they even occur at all) for this universe.

so where is starlight's version of spike?

Twilight still has spike.
Will be explained eventually.

I keep going back to the parts about Dash to try to figure out how best to describe her behavior in this universe, and the best I can come up with is the randomness of canon!Pinkie combined with the laziness of her canon counterpart, with a bit of canon!Twi's love of books.

Yet I feel like even THAT isn't entirely accurate

I'm impressed that you managed to weave all 3 of the CMC episodes from season 1 into one like this.

On one hoof, I kind of miss the whole "Iron Pony" competition thing from the original episode.

On the other, I also realize that wouldn't work with this version of the characters.

Wow... that is deep.

It took me a few times rereading it... but did Starlight accidentally end up proposing slavery?

Alright, just because this chapter, I'm gonna wash away my personal problems with this story. So, personal hang-ups aside, shit's pretty good :twilightsmile:

Oh. Ooooh. I... I did not realize that. At all. Oh no.

Rarity, what the fuck xD

On a more serious note, hmmm... I liked this :twilightsmile:

Except the lack of Starlight qwq

Fluttershy, makes sense; Applejack, really curious what things she left unsaid; Rarity, yep; Pinkie. Pinkie, what are you doing. Pinkie, stahp xD Not 100% clear on what exactly the darkness was a metaphor for, but eh; Rainbow, huh... is this what I think it is...?; and Twilight makes sense, too. Seems a bit weak of a reason to eschew magic altogether though, but I guess it could work? Or is there more, after all?

Loved the running joke with Starlight, too.

I feel like we are being teased with Starlight background here, loved it.

You know, I really am glad that I decided to stick through it back then, when I read the first two or three chapters. For all it's flaws, this story is one hell of a wild ride, and much of it has been genuinely enjoyable. By all means, please do have a pleasant break, and I can't wait for when you're back with more :twilightsmile:

Now, that aside, this chapter. This chapter. It's a love-hate relationship right there, I tell you, all compressed into a neat little package of ten thousand words. I'm not even 100% sure what I hate about it, but I know there are things that bug me. Whatever. Overall I would say I like it more than not, so I won't dwell on it.

That being said, however, the ending was certainly the highlight for me, and I just can't wait to see the topic be explored further in the future. I do not know why, but this particular story thread has gripped me the hardest, and upon reflection, is really the main reason I am here, and is the reason for the first comment I left on this story.

Many props to you, and keep on keeping on :twilightsmile:

Well, at least starlight already recognized the issue previously, this is almost therapeutic now :applejackunsure:

Great as usual :pinkiesmile:

So Rainbow has prosthetic wings, or just the one?
(only now getting around to actually reading this, I had a busy week)

The main bone/biggest pinion is artificial in each wing but the rest is organic.

Part of me is torn on that decision to make more original chapters from now on (not that I didn't like the original ones from this season).

Mostly because I kind of like seeing alternative takes on how episodes from canon WOULD play out in AUs (much more than I like seeing HISHE type fics)

There will still be a mix of both, practically every special like the season end/start and all the villains are more parodies.

I'll be waiting for that suncake to have a great payoff in some future chapter!!
Or maybe it's just a running gag Idk
