"Burninating the countryside... burninating the peasants... burninating all the peoples... and their thatched-roof COTTAGES! THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!! And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIGHT!!!"


Cheese Sandwich walked a long, unbeaten path in the years after Pinkie Pie introduced him to his calling as a party pony. He wandered throughout (and beyond) Equestria, spreading joy to others while also trying to find her again.

But the danger of unbeaten paths is that you can get beaten on them, especially when crossing paths with a deadly and determined seeker of the legendary Alicorn Amulet...

This story took second place in the September 2019 'Friendship is Short Shorts' Writeoff, "Uncharted Territory."

Yesss it's up

The sphinx is taking a vacation? Now that's something I'd like to see :raritywink:

Yay! It got transferred over! That reminds me I should fix mine up and move it over.

"consent is sexy."

True that.

Visions of sugarplums danced on his grave

This is a great line and you should feel great for having written it.

“A girl,” purred the Sphinx. “The Amulet could make her yours…”

Now, now, we've seen what happens when he tries that. An army of party ponies ends up marching on the Crystal Empire.

Brilliant stuff in a clash of genres for the ages. Thank you for it.

Isn’t it, though? :derpytongue2:

While that didn’t make it into the original Writeoff version due to word length, I definitely wanted to give the Sphinx more of a moment to talk about her service to Pachacutie and her future plans. This is even still a little light on that, but at least the scene has some more breathing room.

Do it filly :pinkiecrazy:

The great thing about this contest length is that you can just pick up and move the story as-is without having to spend a lot of time beating it into shape, if you’re so inclined.

It was a line that just came to me suddenly. I’m glad it’s gotten some laughs!

And thank you! Yes, I also rather liked that line, though I wasn’t fully sure if it would scan for readers. Fortunately it did!

Except mine needed some work.

This was great fun, I really enjoyed it. :yay:

Consent is sexy.

Oh Cheese, but you never did offer the Amulet to Pinkie did you? That would have been a tale. And who knows what she could have done with it, given the way she was briefly able to use Discord's power in the End of the End? But it has a stone in it, maybe the pony to really wonder about is Maud. Or was that the stone she meant when she told Starlight that "with the right stone you can rule Equestria"?

I dunno, CoffeeMinion, you could probably do a "War and Peace" length novel about the Pie family, lol... :pinkiegasp:

Of course a vagabond like Cheese would end up in Daring Do like adventures.
