Routine day with a dirt cheap brush, then a week goes by and it goes untouched. Then two, then three, then a month, and the rest of your life you beat yourself up. - Aesop Rock, "Rings"


As a budding diplomat, Flurry Heart often travels out of Equestria and into other dimensions. It's not uncommon for her to get stalled in the Between Place, but something is different this time. Someone else is here.

Tagged as “Mystery” because even though the audience knows Sunset Shimmer, Flurry sure as Tartarus doesn’t.

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

I flat out recognize the Flurry Heart in the cover art. Wonder what the artist think of it... They're on the site (Aleximus Prime. If I remember right).

Aha! I fished around and found the vector on Aleximus's Deviantart. Added as a source.

Hey, I just love seeing these, they're always a treat!

What a terrific interaction between these two.

I like the idea of the Between Place. I might steal it if I ever write about multiverse travel.

Lovely stuff. My only complaint is explicitly referring to the land of pink oceans and semi-abstract backgrounds as "Pony Life." Leaning a bit too heavily on the fourth wall there. Aside from that, great bit of interaction with bountiful implications about the state of multiversal society. Thank you for this.

I like this :) at least some warm fic coop my heart to continue my story |T

The actual journal entry toward the end, with the doodle, really sells it.

This was short and cute :twilightsmile:

This was a very good one-shot. I loved the doodle at the end.

It's fun how inter-dimensional travel seems very casual despite the inherent dangers in such an endeavor. Others here have already said that it's a nice story/snippet, but I'd like to point out how you sold how casual this all was. Good job!

A lovely story. I always love multiversal stories and this is bang on the money.:twilightsmile:

Great characterization, expert sass by Sunset, and great depiction of frustration by Flurry Heart. :yay:

Plus more stories about how life doesn't skip, it plods on in steady dosses.:pinkiesad2:

Call it the "Disco universe" and save time!:pinkiecrazy:

Oh wait that's longer.:pinkiesick:

Nor would it be readily apparent what it was referencing.:facehoof:

Flurry allowed herself a smile at that. Just a small one. “Pony Life,” she mumbled.
