The Iguana Man


I am just a simple thinker, though some call me mad.

While travelling down to Ponyville for Hearth's Warming, Thorax is asked to look into something weird happening at the Pie Rock Farm. One of the ponies living there has started acting very strangely and her family is worried she may have been replaced.

Can Thorax root out the cause of this disturbance? Can he resolve matters in time for Hearth's Warming? Can he survive an afternoon with the Pies?

If you have the answer to any of these questions, Thorax would appreciate you telling him, since he hasn't the slightest clue.


Set prior to the Season Six finale.

A Jinglemas present for Trick Question. I hope she, and every other reader, enjoys it.

I wonder what would have happened with Thorax if he had touched the poison joke...

Also, would he know of hippogriffs if this is before Storm King's assault of Canterlot?

She, actually. Not that it matters. :twilightblush:

I look forward to reading this! :pinkiehappy:

Oh, I do apologize - fixed now.

Good question (perhaps he'd get stuck in Pinkie's form), but please put that last bit (of the first line, at least) in spoiler text - do want there to be some mystery.

But he wasn't in disguise when he tried to touch the petal

True, but then it doesn't seem to be the kind of thing that's that bothered by details like that.:pinkiehappy:

“Pinkamena? There waits a... foreign gentlemare to see you!”

“Coming! I told Prince Rutherford he didn't need to send a courier, but you know how it is with yaks...they always... oh, you're a pony. Hi, Mr Pony!”

I don't know why it matters so much to me...but did Thorax take Shining's advice and disguise himself as a female, or did he not and was disguised as a stallion?

A fun little Thorax-based adventure. The show needed lots more of those, so I'm always glad to see fanfics that fill that void that the show did not. :twilightsmile:

...

Shoot!

He did indeed, fixed that now, sorry.

“eet eez I, Tho rax !” I re-donned my disguise and stepped away.

Dammit, I know that would be mixing characters, but I wish he'd followed up with "I have a massage from Twulot Sprickle."

That would have been good, but sadly I didn't think of it at the time. Still, I'm just happy someone got the reference, so thank you for that comment - genuinely made my day.
