Cloud Kicker might just have the wildest life of any pony in Equestria. That may just be why Princess Luna wants Twilight Sparkle to study the insanity that is Cloud Kicker's life for a sociology report. Unfortunately for Twilight Sparkle, she is going to have to survive the circle of jealous friends, paramours, enemies, crazy co-workers and disappointed family members that surround this crazy pony. Will Twilight Sparkle be able to complete this assignment before it spins out of control, or will she be reduced to a neurotic mess?

A Winningverse Story.

“Yes! A spit-take!” She pumped her hoof in excitement, completely unconcerned with the water that was dripping off her face. “I knew I could do it!”

I couldn't possibly imagine why this scenario seems so familiar.... *liarjack*

This is good stuff. I was waiting for this come out just to get a taste, but I'll have to read the ones before this, which i am doing presently.
That first line: "Let's Bang." Killed me. That's just a great way to start off a story.
*edit: before featured*

Cloud Kicker, banging, victory, comedy. Seems legit. :twilightsmile:

Also stars Best Pony.

Awesome start, ill be waiting to see where this goes. :raritywink:

This story seems to show good promise.
I'll follow it and see how it turns out :pinkiesmile:

HUZZAH!! The winningverse continues to grow! :twilightsmile:

My gosh... poor Twilight.
I think someone should get Cloud Kicker drunk and wake her up alongside one of Dash's closest friends with no memory of what happened.
Of course, we would know. :raritywink:
And then send her into a panic attack overdrive.
Or worse yet, wake up with Dash herself. :rainbowlaugh:

Wait, this is your FIRST fic :pinkiegasp:
This is great, Liked Faved Watched!

Great start! Very much looking forward to more.

Huh? Winning Pony side story? Approved by Chengar?
Must read.

Ahh haw haw haw haw haw haw. Laughing about all but the romance.

So very Twilight, think we can get Tara Strong to do some voice overs?

And Twilight, you should know better than to tempt fate like that with that last line. Tsk tsk. :twilightoops:

There is no way i wont read this.:rainbowlaugh:

I was so happy that I did not have to deal with Cloud Kicker on a daily basis.

Oh, you had to say it, Twi. Let the trolling begin...

Love this. Favorited and have a thumbs-up.
Both characters (Cloud and Twilight) are bang-on (giggle). Keep up the good work. Like everyone else, I can't wait to see where this goes. :eeyup:
And more awesome InuHoshi art! Win to the max! :yay:

Could have used another read through before posting but otherwise...fun little story. I think my favorite part was when Twilight tried to change the subject from the potential disaster of two elements of harmony dating....to Applejack and Rarity.

I also look forward to seeing how Twilight ends up getting assigned to studying Cloud Kicker, since she seems determined to not write the princesses about...this...oh. my. god. Is this you trying to tie into the chapter of Winning Pony with Luna?! Is THAT why Luna wants her to study Kicker? Because she's INTERESTED?! ... you magnificent bastard.

:rainbowhuh: “It wouldn’t look good for the local weather manager to beat down her newest assistant weather manager, but don’t think I won’t do it if you cross the line.”

If only you knew, Twilight, if only you knew...

omg lol this is hillarious cloudkicker's personality is totally the best headcannon

That, was awesome. :yay:

And Twi, you'll end up respecting Cloud Kicker after you get to know her history a little better. :twilightsmile: Particularly if you get the full story about her and Fluttershy.... :twilightoops:

Couple typos here and there, but very well overall

Oh, how wrong you are, my dear Twilight... :facehoof:

The "Winningverse."

That is now a thing.

Oh, you know how this fandom likes to set up silly fanon universes and continuities that seem totally incomprehensible to anyone outside the craze.

This is the same thing, I guess?

I always thought Cloud Kicker was really pretty


Winningness changes you man, it changes you :trollestia::yay:
"Silly" ain't quite the word for it.
A guy of my stature should not twinge like a scared dog during a viewing of <episode goes here; Winningies will know the one>. Winningverse is to blame.
It's going to take me days to get that raw-nerve reactionary twinge outta my system, and then TLATOAWP will update and my emotions will be flayed again, repeating the cycle. And I'll read it, cause it'll be more than worth it. It's been muddlin' whole tracts of my headcanon. It's makin' for a whole chunk'o' tangent headcanon.

-stepping outside the "totally incomprehensible...craze" I revel in for a moment...- :facehoof:

Yeah, I'd really recomend TLATOAWP, on its merits that it's freakin' brilliant, than goes on to display something even more. Not many fics really sink their teeth into you to the extent or depth that Life and Times does. On merit of that alone does Study of Winning look to have excellent prospects, and this first chapter gives a solid perfomance up to what could be expected of it. Will follow this with keen expectations. :twilightsmile:


Well, I do seem to remember Chengar using that term in his blog entry that led me here, so it is in fact an canon thing, I just thought the term needed to be used more :derpytongue2:

“It wouldn’t look good for the local weather manager to beat down her newest assistant weather manager, but don’t think I won’t do it if you cross the line.”

Dat foreshadowing :unsuresweetie:

Haha, going from not knowing why she should feel worried, to being on the verge of a panic attack, in a matter of seconds. That's our Twilight.

...adorkable is too a word... *mutter*

This has much potential! We already know how good Cloud Kicker teasing Blossomforth can be. Adding in Twilight promises a touch more prudishness, a tad less embarassment, and a whole heckuva lot more nerdy overanalysis. Looking forward to the next chapter.


I was so happy that I did not have to deal with Cloud Kicker on a daily basis.


Wait, this was approved by Chengar? WOW, I just had to read to this...and it was splendid! This is really good, and I seriously can't wait for the next chapter. I'll give you a watch and a fav...and since I'm feeling generous, I'll give you a thumbs up too.:twilightsmile:

So... its a satellite story to TLaToTWP ... and an instant featured? :derpyderp1:


Tempting fate detected...:pinkiehappy:..Tactical Murphy inbound! :pinkiecrazy:

1365192 And another one falls to The Winning Pony's irresistible charm. Hooray. What's that, twenty for the day? :ajsleepy:

1366718 Seems that way. That's how I found it. The Winningverse. It's impossible to resist it. You could even say ... futile. :pinkiegasp:

Oh you. So much winning this measly single star is insufficient :rainbowlaugh:

And look who's number 1 on the featured board.

Looks good.:twilightsmile:

Edit: Ha! I knew this universe had a name.


Yep, this is my very first story, and I hope everyone enjoys it. I plan on one heck of a rollcoaster for all of this in true Winning Pony Fashion. Chenger and Comma have given me a huge amount of help also.


InuHoshi's art is fantastic in my opinion. I really hope she will do some fanart of my stuff also!

I'm certainly working to keep all the ponies in character, and let the hilarious inevitabilities happen when Cloud Kicker and Twilight interact.


Twilight does tend to not think things when she is on the panicked side of things. Poor Twilight is looking at potential disasters to both her left and right at the moment.

Maybe… :pinkiehappy: But I will say Twiligth getting her assignment will be covered in the next chapter. Also that I plan on fully revealing all the facts involving Luna and Cloud Kicker by the time the end credits roll. Luna may or may not have plans…


Yep, the Winningverse even has its own group page now. I would highly recommend reading The Incredibly Dense Mind of Rainbow Dash, and the Life and Times of a Winning Pony. They are both great stories in their own right, and the latter runs more or less concurrently with Study.


I hope to live up to your expectations! I have been working with Chenger to create a story that will very much be in the spirit of Winning Pony, and live up to its standards.


There is very much a Winningverse. We even have a group page to keep track of all the stories.


Cloud Kicker is a background pony for the show who Chenger has given some... personality to with The Life and Times of a Winningpony. If you haven't read that story I highly suggest it. Cloudy is all over the place in the show, and if you have a bunch of background ponies in the background, you can pretty much count on her being there.


Oh, I plan on playing up Cloud Kicker and Twilight's dynamic as much as I can for all the reasons you said. Trust me, there are plenty of fun and games to be had in the future.


Yep, this story is pretty much running concurrently with Winning Pony, and should add some insight into some of the things happening in that story in addition to adding a lot of things on its own.

And believe me, I am thrilled to see it featured. I've put a lot of work into this story, and I really hope everyone enjoys it!


Wohooo. I really hope everyone is enjoying the story. Plenty more great stuff to come, I promise.

Oooooooh I'm excited.
Could use a Metonym or a Synonym for bang perhaps. But as a whole, I liked it :yay:

Cloud Kicker is best background pony, and having Twilight be the straight mare to her shenanigans is too good to pass up.

So... Getting a look at CK from an outside perspective. Gonna be...Interesting. Might help confirm if she's someone I can actually form anything beyond contempt for.

I Would Love To - Steve Vai

I still find it bizarre and funny how sexual Steve Vai's stuff can be. It's like he writes his stuff specifically to be the soundtrack to an '80's porno.


Oh god, this is going to be a lot of fun.:rainbowlaugh:

"Let's bang."

Oh god how i wish she would have said

"We'll bang, Ok?"

Oh and Rainbow Dash! Youve been shipped again for the millionth time whaddya think about that?


Aahahahahaha! :trollestia:
