I have bad influences/friends

Or rather I head canoned that pegasi have different wing types, then thought about what Flash Sentry would have for wings. I always say he's from Vanhoover, which lead me to decide he had seagull wings.

Then the joke formed.

Now this exists, and has defeated Element of Himbo as my dumbest fic.

I'll be waiting to see what story you'll inevitably write that will top this one

seagulls are the rats of the skies

He will eat all of your fries

Seems to me there is a minor spelling error.

He will eat all of your friends.

Better.

Flash Sentry, brainless huge seagull.

Yeah it's a hilarious picture. Poor Shining, but some of the implications here are pretty dark.

I mean Velvet dating Pointdexter? Talk about poor life choices.

The face on Shining’s face could be best described as the one a son would have when they find out their best friend is dating their mom.

A face he was intmimately familiar with due to his exfriend Pointdexter.

What.

Also, this fic made me laugh so hard. Great job, have a kudos. And a like.

he fucked pointdexters mom

Actually I think the implication was that shining dated pointdexters mom. How'd he know HIS OWN face?

First there was a fic where it portrayed Flash a chicken, now we have him as a seagull. Can’t say whether or not this is an improvement, but it is hilarious nonetheless

There's a fic where Flash is a chicken? Would you mind linking? That sounds fun

11228049
Well, yeah, I gathered that...
But still, what.

11228390
I don’t know if it’s still here anymore. I remember it had something to do with the head cannon that Flash and Scootaloo were related, and that’s why they both act like chickens.

I love it :o) It’s perfectly silly 😜

Well, I haven't ever seen Pointdexter's mom. Is she hot?

You know, I could see griffons and pegasuseseses with identical wing types bonding over a shared commonality.

I suppose Shining was fortunate Sentry was a gull instead of a goose.

Noisy annoyance

*SQUAWK* Gimmie! Gimmie! *SQUAWK!* Gimmiegimmiegimmiegimmie! *SQUAWK* *SQUAWK*

versus

Feathered assault

*HONK* F:yay:k you, I am taking that! MINE!

This was a fun little farce. I like how you managed to incorporate Shining knowing Flash and thus getting confused by that specifically, and you got the bird behavior down.

Stealing sandwiches from the prince-commander is praxis.

Of course, then Flash finds out Twilight Velvet's been slipping ghost peppers into the sandwiches. If her son can handle that weapon of mass destruction he sired, he can handle a Luna-damned butter knife. (The timing may be off, but the point stands.)

Delightfully goofy story of entirely reasonable objections to budget cuts. Thank you for it and best of luck in the judging.

Shining Armour looked back at the random passerby in confusion. They were in Canterlot, a land locked city in the middle of Equestria.

Gulls didn’t live there.

i mean, it's Equestria! what're ya trying to do, applying logic like that?

Thinking the advice pointless, Shining decided to just enjoy the sunny afternoon and eat his cucumber sandwich in peace.

pride goeth before the fall

It had been made fresh that morning by his exasperated mother who couldn’t believe her adult son couldn’t figure out two slices of bread with dressings.

In Shining’s own defense, putting two pieces of bread together was hard and knives were dangerous.

Ignoring the fact that he was part of the Royal Gaurd.

ahaha aww, useless Shining Armor!

Perched upon the post was a large orange pegasus. His feathers were puffed up, his tongue flopped out of his mouth, and the look in his eyes told Shining that not a single thought happened behind them.

head empty, love it

The face on Shining’s face could be best described as the one a son would have when they find out their best friend is dating their mom.

i cannot at all picture this, but somehow i find the analogy very meaningful

A face he was intimately familiar with due to his exfriend Pointdexter.

ah, less an analogy than an anecdote! and dang, Shining, that is an awkward situation to put your friend in!

“No,” Shining as he furrowed his brow, “don’t I know you from somewhere?”

The pegasus shook his head.

“Wait, you’re Flash Sentry. I work with you!”

ahaha, the absurdity! love it

“I swear, everytime we cut the budget, the guard resorts to these dumb shenanigans. I mean, how hard is it to budget correctly?!”

Flash, knowing that Shining didn’t pay rent, buy food, and came from an upper middle class family, glared.

oof, a very upper middle class move on Shining's part

Or he would have if he wasn’t a seagull at that moment.

hehehe, of course!

“—and another thing! Guards are just so lazy that— hey!” Shining noticed the ruse causing Flash to freeze mid bite. “Get away from my sandwich!”

there is something extra funny and ironic about this that it was even Shining's mom that made the sandwich for her adult son, ah, what a great way to reïnforce character themes!

He tried to glare, but hunger and general seagullery just caused him to go back to his standard dopey expression with his tongue sticking out.

hehehe, "general seagullery"

Delving into his empty mind, Flash sorted through his useless thoughts and, once the inevitable nothing was procured, he settled on idling on the ground as he tried to think of something to distract Shining.

dangit you are so good at describing head empty characters

As he thought, he danced, for a given definition of the word. He hopped in tight circles while waving his wings in a weird fanning motion.

It was the dumbest thing ever witnessed by pony and caused Shining to start laughing uncontrollably.

i would too, that is delightfully ridiculous

As Shining laughed hysterically, tears in his eyes, Flash spun around and spied that the sandwich was now held in Shining’s shaky magic thus his strange pony bird brain deduced that now was a perfect opportunity to yoink it from him.

you know i would have thought that this was a clever trick played by Flash, but it is way better that in fact that was not at all what was going on!

Flash stood up. He stared at the sandwich then at Shining. He then realized he was looking down on Shining thus coming to the realization that there was a simpler way to get what he wanted.

ehehe, being a beefcake of a pegasus does pay off sometimes

“Squawk! Squawk! Squawk!” Flash said as he let out the war cry of his (seagull) people.

hehe, nice clarification

He fwapped Shining with his wings, barraging him with feathers he didn’t have the budget to get preened since he was an underpaid guard.

oof, commentary!

Seizing the opportunity, Flash rushed forward and grabbed the sandwich in his beak-mouth. His prize acquired, he ceased his assault and leapt into the air, flying off to perch on one of the Canterlot Castle spires and be a nuisance to the Diarchy who hated pigeons.

this is just perfection, augh. i can just picture how annoying he would be to the two Princesses!

Freezing in place, Shining looked up at the lamppost to find a brown pegasus with a blue mohawk looking down at him with a blank expression.

“DAMMIT!”

and yes, that is how you stick the landing on an ending!


this was supposed to merely be an absolutely delightful bit of absurd goofiness, yet it somehow manages to also ground all the silliness in a story about social hierarchies and protest by the lower ranks through unconventional means? all of it is just so great, i love it!

Hello! Have a review. This is the sort of fic that really does justify the [Random] tag. Utterly, utterly bonkers -- and yet Shining Armor grounds it enough for it to be a real story too. Nicely done. A definite like from me, and congrats on the Silver Medal.

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

Ahahahaha, excellently done. off to the sequel! n_n
