Writing is just pain leaving the spirit...


After getting caught and captured at the end of the Battle of the Bands, the Dazzlings Adagio, Aria, and Sonata were dragged back to Equestria to face judgment for their crimes. Luckily for them, Princess Twilight believes in the corrective power of Community Service.

Unluckily for Princess Twilight, she believes in the corrective power of Community Service.

On the plus side, at least Applejack will get a new hoof to help out around the farm.

This has got to be the biggest coincidence because I just posted my latest chapter with this song in it.

:rainbowlaugh: Amazing! Let’s drink to that! :pinkiecrazy:

At least Applejack's and Sonata's drunken singing is better than what my singing would be:rainbowlaugh:


What do y'do with a drunken siren?

What do y'do with a drunken siren?

What do y'do with a drunken siren early in the moooor-ning?


What do y'do with a drunken siren?
What do y'do with a drunken siren?
What do y'do with a drunken siren early in the moooor-ning?

Turn her into a silly pony!
Turn her into a silly pony!
Turn her into a silly pony!
Early in the moooor-ning!

I wonder how the Apple family scrumpy compares to Nanny Ogg Scumble.

I mean, both are made of apples... mostly apples.

I could see the sirens complaining about the new pony body and how it's so much better as a sirens. At least as immortal human they could indulge in as many vice as they wanted. I mean after a 1000 year of being in a body, you get used to some things.

Sonata is sooo gonna miss Tacos. With meat.

I do love the idea of good, old-fashioned Apple family bootlegging.

In any case, delightful stuff, though I've always preferred making Aria the earth pony and Sonata the pegasus. Still, wouldn't work nearly as well for this story. Thank you for a wonderful shot of fun.

That was adorable! Glad it was in the featured section.


🎵Rub her belly and give her headpats,
Rub her belly and give her headpats,
Rub her belly and give her headpats,
Such a silly po-ony! 🎶

"No magic jewel, no airbreathing. We had gills for a reason. Call me crazy, but I like breathing..."

I'd suspect both scrumpy and scumble would blind you just by the fumes. :rainbowlaugh:

See, that's why it works! It's atypical of how they normally go! SUBVERTED EXPECTATIONS!!! :pinkiecrazy:

Wait, it's what!? :pinkiegasp:



Ah, Cider... how many times I have been booted from fine establishments due to my consumption of you.

You made me laugh. A like for you!

Didn't know about the pirate movie, but I did know about the alcohol. Nice.

Thank you!

"Here's to alcohol! The cause of - and solution to - all of life's problems!"

Ah, the Dreadnoughts. Such a classic, 10/10, great story.

Drink responsibly.

I always do. Only problem, what I see as responsible doesn't fit well with most ponies.
Now I have to an get a ber, I can feel it, there is already to much blood in my alcohol. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:


"Sonata is sooo gonna miss Tacos. With meat."

In a world where at least some of the intelligent sapients belong to species that are obligate carnivores (see, Capper), I'm sure there are ways and means of getting ahold of meat, and a family of bootleggers should have some connections... :raritywink:

Ah but can she even eat it while being a pony?

Sonata: "Ah crud, it's vegie tacos from now on isn't it? It's just not the same."


I believe that Ponies (at least those in our world) can eat small amounts of meat with no distressing side effects, and a Taco doesn't usually contain a great deal of meat. But debating the digestive capabilities of fictional magical ponies in the absence of show or comic book canon is a somewhat futile enterprise. :twilightsheepish:

True, so it does make me want to write something about—

No! Bad Ninja! Write Trixie! More Trixie! :flutterrage:

Don't force yourself. If you want to write about something go for it. One shots are nice too.

Ok. This really needs to be more than a one shot. :pinkiehappy:

Wonderfully silly! Great work!

So I take it Sonata got the job? :rainbowlaugh:

Excellent story.

Why did the sirens get sent back to Equestria in this story? After getting their pendants shattered, they were no longer a threat! But the Rainbooms still decided to throw them back into Equestria where Princess Twilight held them accountable and make them do community service, when they didn't need to do that! Just loosing their pendants, the sources of their powers, and getting booed off the stage was punishment enough!

Greetings. Your reading has been completed and can be found here. I hope you enjoy.

Awesome!!! :rainbowkiss:

Wait. Ninjadeadbread?

Eh. Still awesome. :raritywink:

“That’s because that’s literally what it is, Sonata…” the tiny Aria in Sonata’s head told her with a derisive laugh. “We have literally been in another dimension for over a thousand years! How are you this thick-headed…?”

I can actually picture Sonata having head sisters.

This was a wonderful little story.

She wondered briefly, as her eyes took in the sight of the autumn foliage absolutely filling the orchard vista around her, how her sisters were doing with their community service? She knew Aria was put up with some sort of musician couple back in town, and that Adagio was helping the mirror-universe counterpart of one of the Rainbooms work on a fashion thingie.

Something tells he Adagio might get along real nicely with pony Rarity. :ajsmug:

“Except for being a monstrous fish-pony,” Adagio’s voice sighed.

Shut up Adagio! :twilightangry2:

Sonata wondered if that was normal for Earth Ponies.

Laughing is normal for all of us Sonata. :pinkiehappy:

“An’ here’ where ye’ll be doin’ most of yer work for a spell and a half,” Applejack said as they rounded the corner of a hill covered by apple trees, already picked for the season.

spell and a half? :applejackconfused:

“GAH GAH GAH GAH GAH!” she shouted, shaking around a little as she did, “and…!” then set down on all fours. She stuck her chin out, and put on a Chicacolt accent, saying, “Ey you mugs, hop a trolley before I fill yez full a’ led!”

And here I was hoping she'd not act like this. :facehoof:

“Uh… sorry,” she said. “I’m a pretty silly pony…”

Yanthink? :duck:

And in the unicorn Adagio’s case? Apparently she’d been working at Rarity’s Carousel Boutique for just one day, and was already up on charges of embezzlement and corruption.

Knew it. :raritycry:

“ Five PinTs, BuLlY …!” Applejack belted out, just before the two inebriated ponies collapsed to one side, and began rolling through the bushes.

Yep, they're drunk alright. :ajbemused:

“Alright,” she sighed. “Looks like Sonata’s made a friend , at the very least. So that’s… progress? I guess?

Yep, so it ain't a total loss. :yay:
