Hey guys! I write sadfics and sadfic accessories! Oh, and I also do comedy things. Yeah. Feel free to check out my stuff! And I hope you enjoy whichever story of mine you happen to be on! ^^


"My most faithful student," Twilight Sparkle prepared for her mentor's inevitable question, though to be honest she had no idea as to what it would be about. Well, whatever it was, the Element of Magic was completely prepared for whatever the Princess could metaphorically throw at her.

That is, until the words that formed the question made themselves known to the world.

"What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen pegasus?"

Now, with only a day to figure out the answer to her problem, what will our purple protagonist do to figure it out?

This was hilarious. :rainbowlaugh: But to be honest, the answer should have been "Zebrican or Equestrian?" That would've been great.

Well what do you mean? A Cloudsdale or a Ponyville Pegasus?


Gotta love those Monty Python nods :)

1392796 I said the exact same thing on the comment to Chaotic's blog post announcing his intention to write this. I wonder if a pony version of the Black Knight is in the future. "Just a flesh wound." :trixieshiftright:

This really should have the crossover tag on it. After reading it, upvote.

Ah, it's gone live, I see! :D I have to say I love that you added a visual effect to the consequences of being unable to answer the question.

And now Twilight has to go to.... Pegasus Kindergarten! :pinkiecrazy:

Monty python is still remembered, that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside

1392982 I have more planned for the future.... many many more.

"How to defend yourself against a goddess armed with a banana." :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:


1392992 Don't really get it :twilightblush:, but I like your style of writing so it doesn't really matter anyway :pinkiehappy:


This might make it clearer...

Have you been on Writing.com? ;)

Pinkie doesn't use pinkie sense. Pinkie sense uses her. Not supposed to be funny. You said that she used pinkie sense and I'm correcting you.

1394934 Um... no I haven't? ...why do you ask?

The airspeed of an unladen pegasus is the corollary differential between mass divided by gravity in relation to the cosine of any and all lift factors multiplied by itself by the square root of 3.14 -jeez, ponies; it's sooo EASY! :rainbowhuh: :twilightoops: :derpytongue2:

I'd say an average, excluding any outliers, of about 35mph-70mph, depending on the situation.

Lol just figured out where you got that question from :rainbowlaugh:

Minty Python and the quest for the holy grail

bridge master: What? Is the airspeed velocity of a unladen swallow?
Arthur: African or Europian swallows?
Bridge Master: I don't know. Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

Got video :rainbowlaugh:


Someone beat me to it :twilightangry2:

1397095 Um.. .that would be me... .the author? :rainbowwild:

:facehoof::facehoof: how did I miss that? 1397291

Well I'm embarrassed

1399773 Ah... well, I didn't steal the idea from that story. I've had it in my mind for a while now, just now getting to writing it though.

Just found this thing. Made me LOL. :pinkiehappy:

That doesn't happen often, you know.

1440071 Hehe, Monty Python can make an angry old nun lol. :rainbowwild:

I like the writing and the story... Trollestia strikes again! :trollestia: However, I really don't understand the answer.

1448017 Here.

This will make it all the more clearer. It's from Monty Python.

What, Did you tell her to divide by zero or something? now time to read the fic...

Absolutely LOVE Monty Python's Holy Grail so I ended up enjoying this very muchly! :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::derpytongue2:
