All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day and put the pieces back together my way. Yeah, all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day and put the pieces back together my way.


Twilight is still trying to wrap her head around her coronation as sole Princess of Harmony, but the junior Anarch of Chaos is even more clueless than she is. Together they try rising to the responsibilities of their personal predecessors.

Screwball is hooves down the hardest horsey harlequin I've put pen to paper and picked to portray. Hopefully her dithering dialogue sounds suitably strange while still somewhat sensible, since her speech sits saddled with an awkwardly articulated alliteration affinity and a readiness for randomly recursive restless rambling.

This is an entry in the Snippet Series, an anthology of old oneshots I (and my good buddy Str8aura) wrote based around interesting pics I found. New ones will be posted every Thursday for the foreseeable future.

Seriously, I shan't suppress stupendously superb sentiment for this sweet, stirring suggestion of the spirit of screwball! Her personality particular, pleasant and provocative, pulling plots and plans to be put to parable! Their introduction intrigues, I indubitably indicate, and indeed imagine increased interactions immediately! Destiny dictates disaster, deterred directly by discussion, displaying discipline and determination... Earnestly, every emotion this ephemeral epic evokes, effectuates an ebullient exigency to embrace the empty girl...

TLDR: Screwball deserves all the hugs and friends. Go friendship her Magic!

I can safely say this story satisfied the currently-speaking sir.

Have a thumbs up!

Excellent job with Screwball's dialogue - it had to have been challenging to write and have that proper touch of personal cadence, but I think it came out quite well.

Puns are my thing and I still had a hard time understanding that speech

I know, right? Lol

Strangely cute interactions, between Twilight and Screwball.

I'd ask for more: perhaps our perky party pony preemptively presumes friendship, with predictably perilous results.

But something tells me, the particulars may be a prescription more prone to exhausting, then you may prefer to pursue.

Found this story through a post of yours on Reddit. Never seen characterization for Screwball this unique or fitting. Very nice. :twilightsmile:
