I like writing about the worst day of a character's life; it lets us see the mettle inside. (Pronouns: Sock/No!)

The silliness of this is just too much.

oh dear lord

As soon as the doors shut behind him, Stellar looked up and down the woman's body again and said, "You know, my son's single."

Just... wow. :rainbowlaugh:

Absolute hilarity. 10/10 would read again.

Lightning Dust was my favorite.

Thanks! I liked the LD the most, myself, too.


Where are Lulu and Tia and Caddy?

I didn't want to run the joke into the ground. For this sort of thing, it's better to write too little instead of too much.

This is pretty A+ content.

Aw geeze.


TIL ivermectin exists and that it's in the news as of late.
This was quality dark comedy though.
I like how the people just call them by "unicorn" instead of a name. :rainbowlaugh:

Also, Derpy's mask is fine, it's covering her entire snoot. :derpytongue2:

Excellent and absolutely character-accurate stuff all around! My favorite was Trixie :trixieshiftright: but Lightning Dust came very close second.

Some day, five or so years from now, somebody is going to read this. They're going to not get the joke. They're going to read a historical article or two to understand it. And they will understand it.

What I'm saying is that this is the gift that keeps on giving: destroying faith in humanity for future generations. Well done.


Hahahahaaaa! Thanks!

(The cover art source article should get their research started.)

Pinkie's was my fave, but they're all great.
Also, you taught me a new word: "bokeh," so thanks for that, too.


Being a photography nerd myself, it was a treat to make LD one, too.

If "faith in humanity" is still a concept future generations believe in, they have nobody to blame but themselves. Modern media is simply too good at showing them stuff like this.

When it comes to Stellar, desperate times call for desperate measures

This is hilarious :rainbowlaugh::trollestia:

This got straight into the favorites and as download on my hard drive. In 20 years from now this will be a great story summing up the crazy times ....

I knew what Ivermectin was but had no idea what the humans were using it for until I was a couple of "transactions" in - I guessed they were using it as a recreational drug, and wondered if I'd missed out back in my stable days!

This was a wonderful ride and I loved it. Trixie haggling with the human and then just flat out stealing his money was exquisite and something I didn't see coming, just like her mark!


Thank you!


Much appreciated!


Perhaps the best way to respond to such a ridiculous development. Especially for equine medicine. Thank you for it.

I will point out that Ivermectin is used to treat parasites in people as well

but good story

Thank you! Appreciated.

Indeed! It was worth the 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine. However, we're having massive spikes in Poison Control calls here in the US from people taking veterinary formulations.

Satire is the only possible response.

that's because people are stupid and saw that Doctors are using it in proper doses to treat Covid, but again good story XD

This was topical.

Also, nice Derpy Pic. :derpytongue2:

Some business-savvy farmer is going to make a fortune on photos with his horse.

The picture of him balls-deep in the light-blue pegasus with the rainbow mane and tail, both of them smiling at the camera

It's hard to make all these details distinguishable on one picture

That made me giggle far more than it should have.


Dear downvoters,

I guess this story made you so angry as to spontaneously shit your pants.

Or maybe that part was something else.

He slapped the camera to the plexiglass barrier and the cashier's eyes widened. She rang up the order without another word.


Any doctor who is using Ivermectin to treat Covid is a hack and should face disbarment. It's a paralytic agent that affects glutamate-gated chloride channels, which establish charge gradients that allow nerves to function. It does not interact with viral receptors or proteins in any measurable sense.

Hmm, that guy with Dash was more than just feeling a little horse. :rainbowwild:

As cruel as it sounds, there is something satisfyingly karmic about idiots shitting themselves to death.


Yeah, I would take holy water and eye of newt before I took dewormer.

(2x Moderna in April, local mAbs infusion center locations bookmarked.)

The terms works, but in the medical field most just say the doctor 'lost their license'. Disbarment is a funnier term.

I wish people would keep Ponies and current IRL politics/events separate.
Does one really need to have our adorable magical horses talking about the evils of a pandemic?
It's about as tactful as getting Ponies to do a rally on BLM or some such nonsense. :rainbowhuh:

On the one hand yes; on the other hand, satire is supposed to be uncomfortable.

Ponies would 100% say that black lives matter, ponies would also think the disinformation campaign about Covid-19 is abhorrent. You only object to 'real world politics' when the subject matter of a story happens to be one that you don't like, pretty much all the popular media is political in some form or fashion, and to pretend otherwise is to be ignorant.

Glad I waited for the full release and only spoiled myself on a couple of sections. The bit with the CMCs was great. Also Pinkie. I still think my idea for Starlight was better, but yours has the same amount of former villain energy without being permanent. (For the record, it was to have her polymorph the fellow into a creature without lungs. Problem solved!)

Truly, no.
I don't mind historic references to say, Rome, or World Wars, in the context of an HiE fic exploring a comparison between histories of Humans and Ponies.
But I abhor the insert of current politics, and to think that everything is political or at the very least must be related to politics on anything current is a bizarre mindset that disturbs me.
