PonyThunder


Author of mostly cute/funny one-shots and a handful of heartwarming/uplifting stories. I also draw art on occasion: https://www.deviantart.com/pony-thunder

Fluttershy and friends gain access to this website, but quickly find themselves trapped within a paradoxical situation.

Check out the comic where the cover art comes from!

Posted with approval from the staff.

Update 3/19/2021: A couple days after publishing this story, and after Fluttershy injected a hacking payload into the mainframe utilizing a quantum subspace frequency modulation algorithm, we were able to access hidden meta-data for this data endpoint and successfully remove ourselves from the causality loop. I am writing this message to preserve our efforts before we sever the connection, in the off chance that something like this ever happens again. With Love and Friendship, Twilight Sparkle.

Yep, I definitely rule! :pinkiehappy: Also even more paradoxes, yippee!

Okay, so I created a scenario where a heist boss accidentally hires a crew of all hackers:

Hacker#1: I'm in.
Hacker#2: No, I'm in.
Hacker#3: No, I'm in!
Hacker#4: Guys, we're all in this together!
CharlesMaguffin666: I'm in your mom lel

It’s so meta, it’s genius. Wish I could double favorite, lol. :twilightsmile:

Thank you! I appreciate it. It was a lot of fun trying to squeeze as much meta into this as possible.

This is so good, oh my god. Just a pure joy to read, not overdone, and it ends with a heartwarming message for other writers?

Maybe my favourite thing on the site, or at least it feels that way right now.

:heart:

Thank you! And yeah, that's what I was going for with the ending. Although I will say that I definitely edited the bejesus out of this one lol.

What have I done by reading this! Are they forever trapped in my memories, now? :)

This is as wonderful as it is silly! I very much enjoyed it not only for the absurdity but for the joy it brought. Thank you!

There's "meta" and then there's this!:rainbowlaugh:

10726931
They're living happily in all of our memories :twilightsmile:

10726970
Thank you! That's why I'm still doing this stuff after five years haha.

10726977
The meta has metastasized.

Christ on a bike, that was absolutely brilliant. Even if I wasn't already going to give this a favorite, that Author's Note sealed the deal and then some.

A creative, excellently-executed use of metanarrative. Hats off to ya!
:)

:heart:
Thanks! The author's note was actually a fairly late addition too. Before, the story ended in a way that didn't sit right with me, which was Fluttershy using a mild expletive to describe how to deal with harsh critics.

Now this is what I call Heavy Meta Overdrive.

Whoa, this one's brilliant! I really hope I can translate it, but I am just too busy recently. Hack Heck. :flutterrage:

(Will I have your permission if I do it later on? :pinkiehappy:)

10727131
Absolutely! I think I said this last time, but I'd love to receive a link when you finish! And feel free to send a message if something isn't translating well.

10726884
Haha, timespace go brrrr.

10727134
Yes, of course. Thank you! :yay:

This is such a cool and fun idea. Great work!

That's OK, so did the ponies. Fair's fair.

You changed your profile bio as well? :rainbowlaugh:

10727198
I'm glad someone noticed lol. For posterity and to readers from the future, it said this: Hello? Is anypony there? The ending didn't work either, and now everything is dark.

Note to moderators: If that constitutes breaking the role-playing rule, please let me know or feel free to change the profile text. Based on why that rule exists though (https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/299306/role-playing), I didn't think it would hurt to add as a little one-time gag.

Lol.



Less funny than the BPL podcast.

And from this day onward Pony thunder was dead. Anything written after this was one of the mane six trying to pass the time in the darkness.

...Drat. I let myself believe this had a happy ending.

EDIT: Well, given the recent edits, I suppose it does now. Neat.

Ok that image is adorable

10727257
Please check out the whole comic, it's 10x more adorable than the picture (and has actual "hacking"). There's 5 pages.

To quote Austin Powers...oh no, I've gone cross-eyed.

...also, I'm all in for adding 'hacker' to the list of Fluttershy's potential hobbies, human or pony.

goddammit I just saw the comment on your profile.

Ok, the concept combined with the cover art, combined with the execution was great and very creative! Flipp'n bravo buster! Bravo! :pinkiehappy:

PMientkaiIenPcieep triuolne!s :pinkiehappy:

I found the beginning very funny when they were looking at the stories :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: Now I really want to see them just exploring the website and their reactions to the brony community and the website's stories.

Wow, that's meta up to 11. Great for a late-night laugh. Awesome job! :yay:

PonyThunder, you are charged with multiple counts of breaking dimensional walls.
How do you plead?

"Okay, here we go..." Fluttershy said as she placed her hooves back onto the keyboard. She quickly shifted her gaze toward the monitor, eyes focusing inward and p eering deeply into the screen. She was in the zone.

P

Fluttershy first located the web browser icon and double-clicked it, accidentally opening two instances to her annoyance, then closed the second one and moved the cursor to the search bar. Her hooves rapidly tapped against the keyboard at a blazing rate of 12 words per m i nute, filling the room with clicks and clacks as the rest watched the master at work.

I

"I'm in..." said Fluttershy, lea n ing back in her chair.

N

"It's worse than we feared," said Applejac k , her eyes scanning over the pictures until one popped up that caused her to recoil in disgust. Is that me ?"

K

Displayed prominently on the screen was a slightly saucy picture of Rarity and Applejack and some accompanying text: When Rarity pays a visit to Applejack, the two quickly realized they have more i n common then they realized.

I

"No you ain't!" Applejack quickly stumbled over Flutt e rshy in an effort to divert the cursor away from the inevitably embarrassing content, causing the web browser to click on something else entirely at random.

E

Another photo and story description ap p eared out of nowhere.

P

"Oh my," Fluttershy said, blush i ng and covering her eyes with her hooves.

I

Applejack got to h e r hooves and belly-laughed. "It sure looks real to me!"

E

Fluttershy reluctantly came out of hiding behind her mane, quickly hitting the back button on the web browser. "Yes, I'll try." Fluttershy moved the cursor onto the magnifying glass symbol and clicked on it. "What's our que r y?"

R

Twilight scanned it q u ickly. "That's it. That's the one. That's the story that we must be stuck inside."

U

Fluttershy clicked on the first and on l y chapter, and waited as the screen loaded. They huddled around the screen again and silently began reading the story.

L

"I can try, I suppose." She navigat e d to the login page of the website and typed in the author's username. "But we'll need to hack the password. Any ideas?"

E

Rarity s ighed. "Fine, I suppose we can do it that way. Nopony wants to read hours worth of trial and error, I suppose..."

S

...

Pinkiepierules!

I found all the pink letters. Do I get a cookie?

A meta fic that wasn't just lelsorandom cringey nonsense? Nice.

So thanks for that.

Amusing, but meta stories always give me a pain in the existentials.

At least she hacked your account, and not some of the filth trash I write...

...I'm so ashamed...

Imagine if she said to be continued instead

What a rollercoaster. :rainbowderp:

What they hay? My mind is blown.

My head spins!!! Am I real!?

Pushes trophy towards you with hooves.

You've won FiMfiction forever. We can all go home now.

I saw what you did there with the colored letters :ajsmug:
Pinkie PIe, how many holes did you create in the time-space continuum? Also, how many new cracks are there in the fourth wall?

:twilightoops: What the hell am I looking at? When does this happen in the story?
:pinkiesmile: Now. You're looking at now, Twilight. Everything that happens now is happening now.
:raritydespair: Well, what happened to then?
:pinkiehappy: We passed it.
:rainbowhuh: When?
:pinkiecrazy: Just now. We're at now-now.
:ajbemused: Well, go back t'then!
:fluttershysad: When?
:twilightangry2: Now!
:pinkiesmile: Now?
:raritydespair: Yes!
:pinkiesmile: I can't.
:twilightoops: Why not?
:pinkiehappy: We missed it.
:rainbowhuh: When?
:pinkiesmile: Just now.
:fluttershysad: When will "then" be "now"?
:pinkiecrazy: Soon.
:raritydespair: How soon?
:derpyderp1: Twilight!
:facehoof: What?
:derpytongue2: We've identified their location.
:fluttershysad: Where?
:derpyderp2: It's the website known as fimfiction.net.
:applejackunsure: Well good work, sugarcube! Open a new tab and prepare th' hackin' tools!
:fluttershysad: When?
:derpytongue2: 1900 hours, ma'am!
:pinkiecrazy: By high noon tomorrow, they shall be our prisoners!
:raritycry: WHO!?

10727667 "Spaceballs" is cancelled for offending everyone. "Earth" is also cancelled for offending the universe.

I'm suing the Fargle Network as we speak.

:trollestia:

10727658 The 4th wall now resembles the glaze on 2500 year old Chinese porcelain. :twilightoops:

A fluffy pink unicorn suddenly pranced into the room from atop a rainbow and gave Pinkie Pie a hoofbump on the way out.

Flufflepuff, let's see what they've learned! What color are the unicorns? What are they dancing on? What word best describes the texture of their magical fur?

:applejackconfused:
