Impossible Numbers

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying, And this same flower that smiles today, Tomorrow will be dying."


Sunset Shimmer owns this world. She can do whatever she likes, play whatever games are devised, run around in a high-tech simulation the like of which has never been seen, smelled, heard, touched, or tasted before. And why wouldn’t she, when the Spirit of Chaos himself is her own personal game master?

But sooner or later, all good games must come to an end…

Contestant for the Sunset Shipping Contest: Endings. Further details are available via this link.

Should Hasbro commission a Lemon Hearts spin-off series (I know they will, and nothing will convince me otherwise of this fact) I hope they commission you to write an episode or two. One my favourite takes on a background pony, here.

Rest of the story is fab too, obviously. I'm off to go watch some Cornetto Trilogy now. No idea why. :twilightsmile:

Brilliant work, tying together real and virtual in a symbolic tangle better than any dream sequence Luna could conjure. Thank you for a fantastic read. Best of luck in the judging.

I honestly never thought there could be such as thing as "weird cyberpunk," but this is actually that. I like it.

Ah, and there it is. I don't even like Sunset Shimmer, but you'll make me read a Sunset Shimmer story.^^


Oh, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, friend, but Lemon got kicked out of Hasbro for being drunk and disorderly. However, she says if you'd like to see this spinoff show happen, please donate lots of money to www.thisisnotanotherlemonheartsscam.com.

Also, the Cornetto Trilogy, gosh... You have a good eye for movies there. And thank you for commenting! :scootangel:


I'm glad you enjoyed it so much, and yeah, weaving all the interconnections was a good chunk of the fun. Thank you very much for the fine comment. :twilightsmile:


Huh, I didn't even think about the cyberpunk aspects while I was writing it, honestly. Just focusing on the particular elements of a science-fiction premise, at the time, rather than any specific genre or category. But now you mention it in hindsight, that's interesting...

Anyway, thanks for commenting on my story. I'm glad you liked it. :pinkiesmile:


Well, I hope you enjoy the experience if or when you want to give it a go. I have to admit to a soft spot for her character myself, so hopefully that shines through here.


Do you mean it was a bit confusing? Sorry if I seem a bit slow-witted, but I honestly can't parse that comment at the moment. I hope the story wasn't disappointing, but if so I'd be interested to learn from any such feedback.


I see. Thank you for clarifying, and for the compliment too. :eeyup:

You have to read the

*takes a gulp of… something*

first chapter fast and the second one

*shiver, shudder*


that's the way to read this story

dear sweet Celestia


Sort of like going on a pub crawl before waking up the next morning. :moustache:

I feel like I'm not smart enough to fully appreciate how well-written this fic is, but I enjoyed it nonetheless :)


Well, that's ultimately the most important thing, and I'm glad you did enjoy it. Thanks for the comment! :scootangel:

I at least hope you were on the good stuff when you wrote this.

literally what c.c;


Er... I take it from that emoticon you didn't like it, then? :unsuresweetie: If so, I don't suppose I could receive a little feedback explaining where I might take notes for improvement? It might help avoid similar problems in the future.

Oh no, I love it! I just have no idea what's going on! XD

“Relax, Little Miss Prudery,” said Lemon, leading her evening choice away. “We’re just playing some mind games.” To the suddenly smiling stallion, she added, “Ping pong? I’m in a rebound mood tonight…”

Yes! Fun!

The Reality feels more videogamey than the Simulation.
If you reversed the chapter titles, I'd have no trouble believing that they were escaping from some posthuman future of maximum accelerationism into a world where time at least travels in a straight line.

I liked it.


Interesting to know, and thank you very much for commenting. :pinkiesmile:
