This story is a sequel to Adventures in Currency Exchange: the REAL Conversion Bureau


Another day at (and in some cases, away from) one of those most helpful government agencies available to humans who end up in Equestria through no fault of their own. Whatever you have, they'll take it, give you shiny bits in return, and then get your money back to your universe where it belongs! (Why nopony offers to use the field agent portals to send humans home is never discussed, for some reason.)

Dawn's Eastern Rays of Perfect Yellow

Best Muffins name ever :derpytongue2:

"We only take home-made cash if it came from Emperor Norton."

As a history fan, I love you.

So, is Derpy part-kirin?

Why was Luna trying to give that guy money?

Read it, didn't vote. Don't @ me bro.

One of the better explanations for Derpy I've seen.

Fluttershy is still out taking care of her animals -- that last batch of fanfic writers they ate went down even worse than usual.

That's... concerning.

I'm not sure what I like more, pronouns being impolite in Yakyakistani culture, "smashbait," or Yona counting by powers of two. It's all fantastic. As is the fact that the Bureau will accept the Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico's handmade currency.

I can always get behind a Best Pony who can see into other universes.

Celestia didn't understand why the beefy men on stage were so appealing to her while she was in this form, given that she would have dismissed them as little more than shaved minotaurs if she were in her pony body.

The mind is a plaything of the body, as Twilight can attest.

Luna did only have a few years post-banishment to refine her diplomatic skills. Those could still use some work.

Derpy believes we will soon be invaded by one of the few things worse than a large gathering of fanfic writers: a rampaging horde of habitual fanfic readers.

It's a very good thing I treat her well in my stories...

Brilliant madness throughout. Thank you for the transcription. :raritywink:

Thank you! As you may have seen from the previous story, her mother was something of a fan of Whitetail Wood Wonder Weed. (In other words, Mom was stoned off her cutie mark when her little filly was born, and couldn't stop staring at the little one's mane.) :derpytongue2:

I was hoping someone would enjoy that! :twistnerd:

It's your headcanon; Derpy can be whatever you like. :pinkiehappy: And I guess I wasn't clear enough on Luna's mission. She was trying to give away money for the same reason Celestia was spending it -- to get it back into circulation on human worlds.

Yak disdain for pronouns came to me suddenly, but it made a decent explanation for why they always seem to avoid them. It probably sounds less awkward in Yakish than it does in modern Equestrian. As for Yona's counting choice, we know from a recent episode that she excels in science, and you can't learn science without picking up some math, so it seemed to be a good way of showing she's more intelligent than she sounds.

Also, pony skills or people skills -- whatever you call 'em, Luna's aren't the best. Her intentions are solid, though. :eeyup:

Brilliant madness throughout.

You're very kind! Thank you. :twilightsmile:

It was the name. Seems very kirin-ish.

Yes, but why THAT guy?

Drugs were involved. (See other comments, or the previous story.)

Yes, but why THAT guy?

He was the first person she spotted after appearing in that particular human world. Her sister had planned things out, but Luna was just improvising.

And if you're still having trouble with the currency, cuddles and ear scritches are also accepted. And no, Cloud Kicker is not the towns Welcome Wagon. Court order. Ignore any claims otherwise

:rainbowlaugh:

That was great. Particularly liked the Emperor Norton reference (praise be to Saint Norton).

Downvoted for curiosity. :derpytongue2:

Bring it on, Purple Princess.

Reading them back to back, I think I prefer this one overall to the original. :unsuresweetie:

The princesses ways of taking care of the money are interesting.

I enjoyed Diamond and Yona. Maybe they could get together sometime. Yona might make a good bodyguard for Diamond...
