Twilight Sparkle invites all of her friends to a play when she discovers that it’s about their past adventures. However, the girls and Spike soon discover how inaccurate this play really is.

Takes place after the events of “The Last Problem.” This is based on “The Ember Island Players” from Avatar: the Last Airbender. Contains bad acting, flanderization, and a disappointed original cast.

Oh my goodness this is so funny. I really enjoyed it. Who would’ve thought Spike was such a troll. I also enjoyed all the little jokes and ships you had sprinkled around. Great job

“Oh, no! How can my own friends betray me?!”

The real Twilight’s friends sunk in their seats.

“Boy, was that a crazy event,” the real Spike said. “I still don’t understand how you girls didn’t trust Twilight or how Celestia went down so easily.”

You’re never letting them live this one down, Spike?

“Well, since the part with Sunset Shimmer’s world was left out, I was thinking we could do a play similar to that. We could have a play about Twilight and her friends living in a world just like Sunset Shimmer’s. They’ll still be ponies, but they’ll have many different gadgets and stuff from that world.”

“That sounds interesting. What would we call it, though?”

Spike thought about it for a minute and then said:

“Pony Life!”

Are you trolling me, Spike? :pinkiecrazy: ARE YOU?! :flutterrage:

It made me laugh especially with the flanderization of each ponies with Mane Six and Spike being embarrassed of their portrayal.

Especially Applejack’s exaggerated southern accent, Rainbow Dash using outdated slangs and Rarity keep using "Darling" a lot.

Also, what the heck is 411? Seriously?

Great job! :)

The Gala was basically accurate at least.

This was by far my favorite ATLA episode despite it being just before the series finale; but hey at least it was better than an annoying clip show. Sure it was that way with TLOK ... but at least it was saved by Varrick's wacky version of his perspective:rainbowlaugh:.

Also who could ever forget Toph's expression:

my only regret is they didn't have some romance that pissed off the mane six like having rainbow dash in love with zephyr or applejack and one of the flim flam brothers etc

Considering most of the fandom's views on Sparity which is featured in this fic, that's good enough. ......Oh, you mean in the play? Eh, some missed opportunities are bound to happen.

Also, what the heck is 411? Seriously?

It's a 90s slang term for "What's going on?"

Oh! Thank you!

Yup, like Rainbow Dash said, that slang along with Home Skillet and Da Bomb are definitely outdated.

Dang, surprised this wasn't on "Top Stories" or whatever. This is true comedy at it's best!

I do love a good Ember Island Players scenario. This was a fairly basic treatment of the concept, but still quite fun. Though I'm kind of disappointed that we didn't get to see the script butcher Equestria Girls, to say nothing of Sunset's reaction to it. That said, the end gag was funnier than it had any right to be. Quite good work, all told.

YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

This is such a good idea for a fic lol

“Pony Life!”

NOOOOOO!

Liked the story, though.

“Well, since the part with Sunset Shimmer’s world was left out, I was thinking we could do a play similar to that. We could have a play about Twilight and her friends living in a world just like Sunset Shimmer’s. They’ll still be ponies, but they’ll have many different gadgets and stuff from that world.”

“That sounds interesting. What would we call it, though?”

Spike thought about it for a minute and then said:

“Pony Life!”

SPIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKEEEEEEE!!!!!!

“Seeing how almost everypony’s here,” Rarity said, “what activity do you have in store for us?”

Almost?

“Come on, girls,” Twilight said. “It’s been forever since we’ve done something as a group that didn’t involve saving the world or keeping Luster Dawn under control. A play like this could be an experience for all of us.”

Wait, they had to do that together?

“You’ve gotta be kidding me!” Real Twilight said. “That was the worst acting I’ve seen, and I’m including Celestia during her ones-versary play.”

Debatable

The two stage-kissed, and a bright pink light lit up the stage.

What does that look like?

“Come to think of it, King Sombra was defeated pretty quick,” the real Spike pointed out. “Still, at least I became famous.”

“Yeah, I almost forgot who Sombra was,” Twilight said.

Ok, now that’s funny.

“He makes lunches for you,” the real Rainbow Dash said.

“A-aren’t friends supposed to do that?! I make lunches for him, too!”

Yea, so do husbands and wives.

They could’ve at least hid the wire better, Real Twilight thought.

Isn’t there a spell for that? Or was the budget not big enough?

As Twilight headed for the dressing rooms, she heard one of the actors say, “She doesn’t know who the actor really is?”

“I guess not,” the other replied.

What does that mean?

Celestia chuckled. “I had a feeling your reactions would be mixed. So was mine at first. But the director informed me that not all adaptations have to be accurate. Sure there would be some flaws here and there, but it’s not a documentary. It’s best not to think too hard about it.”

That actually makes sense.

“The most important thing about m—Rainbow is that she always talks about how awesome she is. Like, she would talk nonstop about it.”

Well, at least she admits it.

“Oh, thank you. The director said to use as much slang as possible for this character, but she didn’t specify which ones to use. I had a feeling the stuff I said earlier wasn’t what the ponies would say in those times.”

Imagine getting advice from the person your playing and not realize it.

“The snacks here are cheaper and more entertaining than this play,” Pinkie said as she munched on some jelly beans.

Wow

“Don’t talk with your mouth full, Mommy,” Li’l Cheese said.

Are we sure this is pinkie pie’s child?

“Uh, oh. This is the part where Starlight Glimmer shows up,” the real Applejack said. “I hope they didn’t mess her up too badly.”

That’s exactly what I’m hoping.

“Hope is a fickle thing.” Real Applejack tilted her hat.

Facts

“Twilight!” she called out. “Remember your brother and sister-in-law? Look what they wrote to you. I'd say it myself, but I doubt the audience would like that.”

Why?

“Time travel doesn’t work like that. You’ll just make an alternate timeline where we don’t exist, but this timeline will still be around. It’s pointless.”

I guess that’s how it works.

“Wait a minute,” the real Rarity said. “Starlight only traveled back to when Dash was doing the Sonic Rainboom in order to prevent us from getting cutie marks. She never considered traveling back to prevent our births!”

I wouldn’t put it past her.

“Are you really going to open an education system for non-pony creatures?” the fake Neighsay asked. “One of them could use friendship as a means of destruction.”

Thinking back on it, that does sound stupid.

A pink pegasus with a cyan curly mane flew in. This was supposed to be Cozy Glow, but…

“Wait, Cozy Glow was way younger than that,” the real Rainbow Dash complained. “She was, like, seven or eight years old. Ten, tops. Here, she looks like she's in her mid-20s!”

How many actors do the know that age?

“What?!” Real Twilight shouted.

Don’t you mean the fake one?

“Well, since the part with Sunset Shimmer’s world was left out, I was thinking we could do a play similar to that. We could have a play about Twilight and her friends living in a world just like Sunset Shimmer’s. They’ll still be ponies, but they’ll have many different gadgets and stuff from that world.”

“That sounds interesting. What would we call it, though?”

Spike thought about it for a minute and then said:

“Pony Life!”

Omg, that is amazing.

“Time travel doesn’t work like that. You’ll just make an alternate timeline where we don’t exist, but this timeline will still be around. It’s pointless.”

Actually I think it just changes the original timeline but that’s just my opinion.

The real Twilight’s friends sunk in their seats.

That’s right be ashamed.

Despite the fact that Twilight had transformed into an alicorn, she was not granted immortality. This was evident by the bags under her eyes that matched her friends'. Princess Celestia knew that Twilight would be heartbroken if she ends up living longer than her friends. Thus, Twilight had only gotten the power and wings of an alicorn, but not its lifespan.

sigh. . . Yes she would be heartbroken, but so has everyone in the history of forever who has lost a beloved pet or relative! So has Celestia and Luna many times during their 1000yr+ lifespan! In any case, an emotionally mature person would learn to COPE with the loss and move on.* And Twilight would have to as well if she outlived her friends.

*(And to those less mature, that they have others to help them through. . .) :fluttercry::twilightsmile:

I can see Twilight wanting to seek and secure immortality for herself, her friends, and eventually everyone, if possible. And I can see Celestia and Luna having worked on that too over the centuries, and thus they wouldn't hinder immortality from Twilight if they could help it.

To those with objections to the idea of immortality for whatever reason, I'll lead you to this article and hopefully it'll debunk them for good. . . https://rhjunior.livejournal.com/592763.html

One corny coincidence after another, looks like the play was spot on to me. :rainbowlaugh:

“Discord!” Fake Twilight glared. “What did we do for you to take our world away?!”

“I’m the Lord of Chaos, remember?” the Discord head asked. “I wreak anarchy and all it brings. If you’re not satisfied, then I will show you what I can do!”

Don't think no one noticed that little reference to the Discord song here.

“Pony Life!”

Mane Six making commentary on Pony Life episodes confirmed?

“I hate to see what Equestria was like before we came along,” Fake Spike snarked.

Y'know, that's actually a good point
