Not checking in here. I may post stories because my patrons are nice and like ponies. Otherwise out of the fandom, sorry peeps.

Celestia is a princess, elegant, regal, and certainly not secretly trying to mess with everyone around her for her own amusement...

Brought to you by watching Jordanis play Untitled Goose Game a bunch. Plus having Celestia be the goose instead of making Celestia deal with the goose was also his idea, and he edited it super well, so pretty much this is Jordanis' story, I just wrote bits of it.

Story is now complete!

This. This chapter. It's absolutely perfect.

Especially the slow buildup to the punchline of "Rake in the lake" as you realize 'is she really going for that one?'

Loving this so far, Celestia is just the kind of pony to set these little challenges for herself just to keep things interesting.

*leans onto hoof and has a long sigh*

of course, this goos had to become a fic ... i mean- how could it be any different XD

Jordanis also had the "rake" pun idea. :pinkiehappy:

It kind of loses something when the targets aren't perfectly aware that they're about to be screwed over somehow, regardless of their efforts to stop it.

According to the TvTropes page, it's actually one of the most obnoxiously difficult goals in the game.

This was amusing. Trollestia written well is always a treat.

As always, I love reading, writing, and editing Celestia.

I wouldn't say so, especially once you get into the secret and time trial goals. The trick is that NPCs prioritize what you're actively doing right now above everything else. They'll only come after you while you're proactively dragging an item or otherwise violating a "rule", so you can just drop it and distract them with a ton of other things and then do it behind their backs.

Agreed. Rake in the Lake is pretty easy--IIRC, drag it into the one garden bed you can hide in, duck (har) down, and the groundskeeper will lose you. Then go mess up a bunch of things on the far side of the garden, flee, and drag the rake out behind the raised beds. You'll be out of his range by the time he's done fixing the far side of the garden and have a clear shot to the lake. Same basic formula for the picnic items.

this entire fic gave me anatidaephobia

Ha! Love the pun

I saw the thumbnail and title, and instantly knew what this story was about. Primarily thanks to Neebs Gaming.

At first, I thought Celestia was going to be using the form of a goose to troll ponies, but remaining her usual self just adds a whole new layer of challenge to her silly game.

Very fun stuff. Bravo on getting Blueblood into the lake.

You have my full attention. I love this

I didn't get the pun, but it was a funny story anyway.

I was wondering, is Celestia a Duck or Swank in this fic?

You just won a million dollars.

As linked by Dan:

In a historical context, a rake (short for rakehell, analogous to "hellraiser") was a man who was habituated to immoral conduct, particularly womanising. Often, a rake was also prodigal, wasting his (usually inherited) fortune on gambling, wine, women and song, and incurring lavish debts in the process.

Combine that with Blueblood's personality and Untitled Goose Game having an objective to drop a rake in the lake, and you get this chapter.

Well I knew the Rake In The Lake objective from Goose Game, but yeah, I needed that wikipedia link.

Loving this so far. Though can't help but feel it's missing something.

There, that will do.

It’s a lovely morning in Canterlot, and you are a horrible Alicorn.

Okay, you get a fave. That pun is brilliant. :trollestia:

Ah Celestia, having fun where you can. I wonder if she's gonna nick something shiny at the end of this big story. Also, don't be like blueblood. Failure to pay attention to surroundings and you'll be in the lake :pinkiecrazy:

Oh goody, goody, it's the fun Celestia!

This was educational. I suppose that, logically, a noun form of 'rakish' had to exist at some point.

Delightful stuff. I have to think that Celestia kept doing it even after she abdicated. Not getting spotted just added to the challenge!

Of course there’s probably a crewmember whose job it was to make sure the gate was secure. Who is now fired through no fault of their own.

GOOSE GOOSE AM HJONK!

The hjonkening continues.....

Celestia: The Queen of the Geese and overall Mistress of Dickery :rainbowlaugh:

This is excellence though I can see it growing boring quickly if something doesn't happen to spice things up perhaps Luna is in on the game and is also messing with ponies maybe they even have conflicting goals occasionally

9905245
Yeah, that was my thought as well.

Collateral damage would be bad form.

In the words of JackSepticEye...
HJONK HJONK AM GOOSE!

Fuck, you beat me to it! I was also writing a goose story!

Top tier though, hilarious af.

I give it 10 out of 10 mustaches. :moustache:/:moustache:

There's room for more than one! I've been reading goose game stories on AO3, and there are a bunch of really ridiculous crossovers. I've even enjoyed some where I had no idea about the original fandom.

I had a feeling someone would make a story about this game sooner or later on this site,
