The world saw the purple comet, and very few knew what it was. Twilight Sparkle was one of those who had no idea, so she decided she was going on a trip to get some answers. With her friends at her side, she sets her sights on the Candy Kingdom, believing she is prepared for anything.

But evil brews in the Candy Kingdom, and she is far from the only individual to have seen the comet. Ancient secrets are about to be unearthed and mysteries from very distant lands will rear their ugly heads. Meanwhile, a ragtag group of misfits is going to go on and adventure. Because what else do you do in a world like this?

Been anticipating this for a while. The theme song for it is absolutely wonderful, and I am eager to see where this new story goes. :twilightsmile:

Credit much appreciated, and glad to finally see this start to properly appear on the pages once more! Here's to yet another story from GM's mad mind!

Excited to see this go up, first Good Fic ....anywhere that I've been a part producing, theme song is excellent I'll need to go compliment psychics boyfriend on it

Twilight's description is a little lackluster, I can't find any description of her being purple and with the context that this is supposed to be an introduction for people completely unfamiliar with MLP it definitely feels like there should be more to it, not sure exactly what though.

Having a problem with it not saying that Twilight it purple sounds like a meme... But that's actually a good point

Here's to another great adventure GM. raises soda can in toast

Off on another adventure! Gonna be honest, might take bit to get used to everything not being narrated by Twilence

The probability of a vehicle crashing is directly proportional to how many words are put into its description.

First, some nitpicks.

In a distant town many miles away

There's no context to where this town is distant from.

The author's note links to this story. Twice.


I've noticed that a recurring theme of yours is introducing a bunch of characters in the first chapter who'll be explained later.

Who's your favourite member of the Mane 6? I used to think it was Pinkie because she used to be your avatar and had a prominent role in The Protagonist, but Twilight is the protagonist of even more of your fanfics.

Twilight's precision reminds me of this comic.

Luckily for her, she was a master of magic. Some said her purple coloration made this obvious, but she always reminded them not all creatures with purple coats were masters of magic.

May have been added after your comment, but it's there now.

Oh, this should be very interesting. Though I will have to keep the list of crossovers in mind. I keep expecting the purple comet to presage a race to collect purple coins in order to claim a key power source for an interstellar observatory.

In any case, looking forward to more.

Issues fixed.

Pinkie is best pony but Twilight serves the role of protagonist better.

-GM, master of protag.

Good to finally see this go up!

AIRSIHP

I absolutely love the description of Twilight's airship, and I definitely won't be ruminating over its description for my own purposes for my own airship ideas. :pinkiecrazy:

Dang you already killed the coolest character, the airship. :twilightoops:

Samuri Jack on the motorcycle.

Quick references to Princess Bubblegum, an (as yet) unknown Dragon, and of course, ponies.

And the CMO robot.

That's 5 of what you said was 7 (?) worlds introduced.

Lets see the rest of this get fleshed out.

all you needed to do was send a written notice of her departure.”

Probably should be "your departure".

Hmm, now will that be fruit flavored or hoof-to-the-face flavored?”

That's Pinkie. So what other types of punch are there?

Wait, is AdventureTime really the land of Candy? I knew it was "Princess Bubblegum", but a pure candyland?

Last chapter, it seemed like Twilight was able to steer the ship on her own, before she turned on the auto-pilot. Is it really not "turn off-able" without the emergency override?

Hmm. Land is named "OOO"? Purple disasters? Will we see Dinosaurs come out of fossils? (Nope, that's a different crossover universe.)

10264578
The Land of Ooo is the setting of Adventure Time, with many different kingdoms explored, The Candy Kingdom is in fact a slightly more tame Candyland with a cartoony sci-fi explanation as to why

“I’m having a little difficulty empathizing with the dregon right now,” Twilight grumbled, rubbing her horn with a hoof in a vain attempt to nurse the headache.

Nonsense! The headache makes it easier for you to empathize with him. :derpytongue2:

And we have our first conversation with a non-Equestrian, with fairly predictable outcome. Better than the alternative, though. (Though smartphones' nature as ancient relics raises interesting questions about whether the mirror portal is a thing in this setting.)

Ahh pinkie, never change. I wonder if we’ll see any strange events happen in Equestria while these three are gone.

Pinkie Pie is Pinkie Pie, and Marceline is awesome.

LIl

I miss the 10k per chapter already but I already love this story.

This time can be cut down considerably if one is an expert in creating life from basically nothing, but that is a rare title.

Careful, you're edging towards Skaia there. And I have to wonder who's writing these opening bits...

Pinkie jumped into the air and rammed her face into the lake, sucking as hard as she could. For a moment, Twilight and the others held their breaths, wondering if she would lower the syrup level.

I'm reminded of Thor in the hall of Utgarda-Loki. (No, not that Loki. Though he was there.) For Pinkie's next trick, she'll wrestle Marceline's grandma!

“Maybe the color pink just makes great personalities,” Marceline mused after her laughter died down.

You may be a bit biased there, Marcy.

There is the question of just what Bonnibel's doing out here. I suppose we'll find that out in good time. For now, it's been an eventful day. The magical anomalies will still be there tomorrow. Probably.

The zogging guzzling line is still there, COME ON GM, YOU’RE KILLING ME HERE.

Your dirty mind is your problem, not mine.

I'd say that, in this continuity, King Of Ooo(.com) is Princess of the Candy Kingdom

10279665
So king of ooo era and old man biker jack. This is getting interesting.

And so the two famous heroes of ooo arrive what awaits our group of adventurers now? Also cool idea with how magic works, plus the hello to Fluttershy was cute.

Lost Mercury? Well, that bodes oddly. :twilightoops:

“Is she a wizard too?”

I'd classify her as more of a shaman. Possibly an avatar.

Well… let’s start by saying that I’m not sane, I hang around Pinkie regularly by choice. Sane ponies don’t do that.

Wait, what does that say about... No, no, that checks out for most of Pinkie's friends. Applejack's the edge case.

We discovered the magic of friendship. Of harmony.

This raises some very interesting questions about the Elements and Celestia's usage thereof in this world. If she didn't use harmony magic to seal Discord and Nightmare Moon, what did she use? (Or I'm reading too much into it.)

In unison, both of them let out exasperated sighs and ran up the stairs to deal with whatever had the gall to ruin their science time.

Answering the globdang call to adventure, pain in the globdang butt...

Let's see how Finn and Jake fit in the developing group dynamic.

10286089
Well it's mostly a background detail lost Mercury is actually a thing in Adventure Time lore

Twilight tore the device out of Marceline’s hand with her magic. “This… This is an ancient ‘smartphone’ device! These… do you have any idea how valuable this is?”

This has my interest. I've never seen Adventure Time outside of a couple episodes of long ago, but I'm somewhat aware of the backstory. I'm wondering exactly how much of it will be incorporated into this.

I'm really digging the dynamic that's building between Twilight and Bon. I know absolutely nothing about her character, since I've not seen Adventure Time, but the way you're handling the writing and characterization makes it easy for a newcomer. I'm also seeing this in the way that you present Twilight and the others as well. I think someone with minimal MLP knowledge could probably pick up this fanfic and enjoy it.

Eagerly looking forward to see what kind of science shenanigans the two of them get up to!

And so the characters are split up for the start of the real fun, what kind of Adventures will they have? Find out next time on the distant princess

I'd say never split the party, but this does seem to be a very effective division of labor. Let's just hope Pinkie does manage to avoid an international incident.

You’ve never known true betrayal until your chair spontaneously achieves self-awareness and bites you.

The question of who's saying all of this continues to linger.

“I’ll get her to eat the dirt, just watch me!”

Just pour cider on it. Easy.

A halo surrounded one of the smallest figures in the masterpiece: a pudgy, round creature with a pink diamond in its abdomen.

Ah. No wonder the opening talked about sapient rocks; they hit a Gem deposit.

... A Gem deposit that's already occupied. This might go messily. Or it least stickily.

So Steven is probably long dead. Wonder what happened to the other crystal gems then. Also glad to see rainbow showing restraint, showing off her equestrian kindness toward other creatures and not wanting to our right hurt them. Though outside of Equestria this may lead to something or someone taking advantage of that.
