Don't ask about the name. It is a silly story.

This story is a sequel to Trixie's Great and Powerful Adventure


When Trixie Lulamoon found herself lost in the distant past, she had no idea how to get back. And so, she decided to make the most of it. Follow her year-long sojourn through the ancient past of Equestria, in her own words, as she somehow manages to found a rebellion, teach a child the ways of magic, and make serious bank off a populace that has never seen a proper Showpony performance before!

Foreward by AK Yearling, author of the famous Daring Do series.

Okay, honesty time: I'm mostly reading this because I need something to cleanse my mind of the Fat Trixie crisis.

And for those of you whose minds have not yet been spoiled by that horror, then consider yourselves lucky. You do not want to know.

All kidding aside, this looks legitimately funny. Tracking.

the Fat Trixie crisis

I pray for a swift end to humanity. :trixieshiftleft:

Eh, I'd just settle for a swift end to that guy's shenanigans.

But getting back on topic; I really like what I'm seeing thus far. The journal entries, especially at the beginning, are legitimately fun to read. Curious to see where this goes in the end.

Already having fun, and Trixie hasn't even gotten to the good parts yet.

I think Daring Do is going to have some choice words for Trixie if they ever meet.

Looking forward to how much Trixie screws things up next time!

Making this into a continuing series? Excellent, he said, steepling his fingers and hunching his back.

This fic couldn't be anymore perfectly Trixie than this even if it tried. :rainbowlaugh:

This promises to be a very fun read indeed. And Daring's footnotes just add to the fun. :twilightsmile:

I am always up for time travel stories, and Trixie stories, and Grogar stories featuring an authentic Grogar. Also interested in how you’re gonna handle Bray.

This reminds me a bit of the Warhammer Cain novels. Here you have a rogue-esk (if not stupidly lucky) character who is perceived as a heroic figure to the public while a third party does the narration, constantly adding their two cents like the straight-man.

Shoot. I've been found out. Time to call Exterminatus...

The bureau called, they are asking if you want a planetary bombardment, a cyclonic missile, a deathwatch team to deliver their doomsday device or if you just want to call in the guard.


On a serious note though, this is a real piece of work you made up!

Logically speaking, they did meet. After this was all over, and one of their mutual not-quite-friends pushed them towards actually publishing it.

It's also possible that Trixie has been back for decades now and hasn't talked about what happened to her. Given how young she seems to be in this, I'm guessing this happened not long before or after Twilight ascended the throne and it's taken 25 years for them to find the journal.

In short, Trixie's being unreliable, forcing them to look for the written first hand accounts themselves and comparing it with their historical/archeological record. At least, there's no indication that this happened to Trixie recently nor is there any suggestion that they haven't found her yet and she's still stuck. I guess we'll wait and see.

There was indeed a cult attempting to use Gusty’s Tomb to bring back Grogar and the city of Tambelon. Don’t worry, they didn’t get close. Suffice it to say, I stopped the ritual and ended up banishing them to the realm of darkness they’d sought to unleash upon ponykind (you can read about the entire encounter in my upcoming book, Daring Do and the Return of Tambelon !).

Did you just open yourself up to writing a Daring Do story, because I think you just opened yourself up to writing a Daring Do story. Also, she and Cabelleron have a kid! That's adorable!

I love everything about this story. You really capture Trixie's personality here. Can't wait for what this story will bring!

Trixie's being unreliable

In other news, the sky is blue. :twilightsmile:

Also, it’s first-hoof account. :pinkiecrazy:

im half expecting trixie to be princess platinum

I love this. You’ve caught Trixie’s voice perfectly, and the interplay between her writing and Yearling’s commentary is a brilliant counterpoint. And at the same time, you’re worldbuilding and adding depth to both narrators, even while making measured use of Trixie’s being an unreliable narrator (and her desire to be reliable). The corrections that Trixie has in the text only add to all these effects, and the notes that Trix added in later are wonderful foreshadowing.

I'm half expecting her to be Starswirl The Bearded's mentor. Would explain their similar fashion sense.

9967586
Alternately, Trixie was totally honest about saving Equestria, mentoring Starswirl, rescuing the princesses, and who knows what else, but no one believed her because she's Trixie and so they launched a search to uncover the real story.

Did you read the story this is a sequel to? She is/was.

I needed a lie-down after I read that. We could have all blipped out of existence the second she said that, I hope you realize. Luna better visit my dreams tonight, because I need it.

Ponies assume that time is a strictt progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, its more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

well she end up marrying him so maybe

You’d be surprised… how often that happens.

Dear Daring,
No, no I wouldn't.
Twilight

"FIRE! SWEET CELESTIA HOW COULD ONE FILLY TORCH SO MUCH!?"

Huh. I half-expected that to get her put into Advanced Placement.

In fact, it would seem Trixie can speak a variety of languages and dialects, to the point where I'd say she's a savant.

Part of Rincewind Syndrome. Something about an inverse relationship between comprehending mundane languages and understanding the arcane. Mind you, Trixie's case is less severe than the best-known case, so it's not as extreme either way.

the past where the Sun and Moon move on their own

Seems Magical History was one of Trixie's poorer subjects.

This is going to be a lot of fun. Indeed, it already is! Looking forward to more.

Huh. I half-expected that to get her put into Advanced Placement.

Not when you launch a firework into Advanced Placement and nail Celestia in the back of the head...

Part of Rincewind Syndrome.

Ironically, Trixie also has the soul of a magician but the body of a sprinter.

"Between the time when the oceans drank Marelantis and the rise of the herd of Alicorns, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Trixie, destined to wear the jeweled Amulet of Alicornia upon a troubled mane. It is I, her chronicler*, who alone can tell thee of this saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!"

screaming unicorn crashes through trees, lands in bush

"Yes. High adventure."**

"HIGH. ADVENTURE."

*I swear to Faust, having to write this in faux-Old Ponish because the editor thought it was "the right tone for an ancient story of the Pre-Discordian era"...I'm Daring Do, not Shake Sphere!
**Hijinks. Close enough.
