The Golden Crane flies for Tarmon Gai'don.

Somepony asks Pinkie Pie a stupid question about mental health. So she gives them a stupid answer.

A crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion, for which it contains very large spoilers. Probably more wholesome than you'd guess from the tags or the title.

A crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion,

wholesome

And that tag and Search and... Wait, what was that title? Go back, there's no way I read that correctly.
I did. What the actual— Wait. I know that name. Let's see what this is about...

Yes, a penguin. Nopony really knew what was going on with that.

Some parallels work better than others, and some are just single lines.

The Angel attacks are easily one of the better ones... though I have to wonder what would happen if they ever did penetrate Terminal Doorstep.

Maud stole the Staff of Sameness, the artifact by which cutie marks are removed.

This entire story was inspired by Starlight's wooden Lance of Longinus, wasn't it?

Marble getting her cutie mark. Maud helping clean up the ashes afterwards.

I have several questions.

I'm not sure what I expected, but this was a surreal delight. And that ending. The NERV!

Thank you for a very important message. Get in the goddamn robot Take your goddamn pills.

10032467 Actually wholesome is a bit of a leap, but I think I would say more wholesome than you might guess from the title.

Mostly it translates as 'This is not a scat story. That's not what the title means.'

With a string of clouded quartz around her neck, Limestone knew who she was and where she belonged in the world

This is the kind of thing that needs to be highlighted again :heart: It's all the better for how godforsakenly deplorable so much of the rest of this is.

And I do love how Pinkie took the time to throw shade at Sunburst. The whole story's sort of a cautionary tale, so it works really nicely as sort of, "Look, just don't end up like that one and you'll be relatively alright" message.

I have to wonder what would happen if they ever did penetrate Terminal Doorstep.

Ooh, I hadn't thought of that one. I was at one point going to show Maud heading down to Terminal Diamond Dogma, but thought it made more sense for that to be the Castle of the Two Sisters :twilightsheepish:

This entire story was inspired by Starlight's wooden Lance of Longinus, wasn't it?

I think we can probably go one further and guess that The Cutie Map two-parter was inspired by that in canon :trollestia: Big Jim's response tweet was 'Not directly.' Which could mean a lot of things!

For the story, it was a few things - the title (I'm really glad you had that reaction to it!), the staff design/what it did/the idea of introducing it to the Tree, and more than anything how the three Pie sisters matched up. And then I remembered that bunny stampedes are legitimately a thing in FIM, and realised how the story might work.

The NERV!

:pinkiehappy: Celestia's in her castle, all's right with the world.

I'm not sure what I expected, but this was a surreal delight.

:yay: Mission accomplished! :twilightsmile:

This is the kind of thing that needs to be highlighted again :heart:

:pinkiehappy: There is a perfect Limestone Pie clip to illustrate, in case anyone doesn't get it!

godforsakenly deplorable

I was weighing up if this meant the misery, weird inappropriateness and fluffy violence, or the puns, and figured probably the latter.

And I do love how Pinkie took the time to throw shade at Sunburst. The whole story's sort of a cautionary tale, so it works really nicely as sort of, "Look, just don't end up like that one and you'll be relatively alright" message.

That is an excellent take on it :twilightsmile: Of all the fairly regular characters, I think Sunburst may be the most consistently bad at friendship, and the most oblivious to that failing. And some of the bits with him and Starlight are unpleasant to watch. He really shouldn't be teaching in that school!
