I didn't write any of that.



Wake up. Go to work. Save Ponyville from unimaginable horrors beyond time and space. Have lunch with your PFF.

Ditzy Doo lives in a different world than her fellow ponies. She sees things nopony else can see—like higher-dimensional spatial anomalies, fae creatures, and eldritch abominations. And she uses what she sees to solve problems that nopony else even knows about.

But this time, Ditzy may have bitten off more than she can chew. Something very unfriendly is trying to enter Equestria through Ponyville’s Town Hall. An earth pony with an hourglass cutie mark has taken an unhelpful interest in Ditzy. The Princess’s personal student has grown suspicious. And, most irritating of all, her alarm clock radio is acting strangely.

Ditzy must race against the clock to save Ponyville—a clock that keeps playing the same song over, and over, and over ...

EDIT:This comment makes a lot less sense now that the chapter has been edited. Sorry about that.

Magilectric Light Orchestra: "Sweet Talkin' Mare"

The Hay LF: "What Time Is Friendship? (Live at Prancentral)"

As for the least subtle song reference in the story, I’m saving the explanation of that one for later.

I will be the first to admit that I really don’t quite get Krasnikov tubes. I’m mainly using them because the name is easier to ponify than “wormhole” is.

Deleted scene:

From this angle, she could see Cloudchaser flying away, shouting at Dash as she left: “Fine! But there will be Tartarus to pay if you mules hold the rest of us up!”

Cloudchaser then turned to the mule who was, inexplicably, standing on a cloud at her side. “Uh, no offense,” she said.

“None taken.”

Awesome. Glad to see that this is finally up. :pinkiehappy:

Heh, and thus I find a fic that depicts Derpy perfectly. I always insisted she was tied to extra dimensional things.

Good story and I'm enjoying it. Can't wait to see what comes next.

Finally, a fic that shows multidimensional occurrences how they are. I've been waiting three and a half plancks for this.

1448010 I know. The story clearly says it's a clock-radio, but that's just a mechanical alarm clock in the picture. Cover art, why must you always lie?

1448266 Thanks. And thanks again for your help whipping the draft into shape.

1448585 You're too kind. Wait... "tied to extra dimensional things"? I'm not touching that.

1449141 Certainly!

1450228 Three plancks isn't very long at all. How SLOW do you even have to BE moving?

1452798 A hard question to answer, but I'll give it my best shot.
First lets deal with what moving means. From a technical standpoint it means to have motion. Now lets say a ball is being thrown, the ball is considered to have motion. Now if the ball was just on the ground, it would still have motion. The Earth is spinning on it's axis, orbiting the sun, orbiting the center of the galaxy, that's speeding through the universe. So lets take that away by putting a atom out in the middle of space. Guess what? It is still moving. The background radiation and light of the universe would give the atom heat. Heat makes a atom vibrate at a higher frequency. Even then, if we have a atom at the lowest possible temperature, 0 degrees kelvin (even though its technically impossible to reach) it would still be considered moving. Why? Because the quarks that make up the atom still have a clockwise or counter clockwise spin.
So, the answer is, no matter how slow you are, you are still moving.

Constable Peeler is the collaborative creation of the bronies on TV Tropes, particularly Kegisak.

Wait, did I read that right and Derpy can't really see Twilight normally or was it just she was too sensitive to her active magics to see at the time?

1475518 That's something I'm planning to spell out in a later chapter. I can say, however, that this isn't the first time in this story that Ditzy has seen something along these lines.

1475999 Believe me, when you're running on caffeine the last thing you want is for the buzz to wear off. You have to make sure to re-energize.:twilightoops:

what the heck is a karsnicker tube?

what the heck is a karsnicker tube?

oh wait nevermind it's like an artificial wormhole... sorta...

From the lack of a random tag, I guess that there is a point behind all this ?

Awesome story so far. You got me glued to the screen.

Many points, in fact. On the ends of claws, attached to multisegmented appendages.

Honestly, the way I'm using them, they're indistinguishable from wormholes. In any case, they're naturally occurring (as far as Derpy can tell).

Deleted Scene:

:moustache: : [aside] We are here at the Golden Oaks Library, where we’ve secretly replaced the fine coffee they usually serve with Foalgers Decaffeinated Crystals. Let’s see if anyone can tell the difference!
[Spike approaches Twilight Sparkle and holds a microphone in her direction.]
:moustache: : Hey, Twilight, how’s the coffee?
:twilightsmile: : It’s great, Spike, thanks for— [falls asleep]
:facehoof: : Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...
:moustache: : [aside] Yeeeeeeeah we can edit that last part out.

Apparently Golden "Dinky Doo" Ink's real middle name is Watson.

so Golden "Carrot Top" Harvest + Written Script = Golden Ink?

interesting take on how pony names work.

anti-photons from the eleventh dimension? Sharviika? "Green" spacial anomaly?

Why do I like this? Why does it make so much sense without making sense at all! What does it mean?!


I think it means I'm watching this story...

Got it in one. I was actually a little afraid that I hadn't made the connection clear enough.


What does it mean?!

You're a nut! You're crazy in the coconut! That boy needs therapy.

...Sorry, it's a reflex.

Well, this is awesome. Not only is it a Ditzy-centric story, it's a Ditzy-centric story where she's the only one aware of eldritch secrets that lie beyond normal pony ken. Given my stories, I'm practically contractually obligated to like it. And I do.

Also, references to Lovecraft, Full Life Consequences, and Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff all in the same chapter? Are you my clone? Am I yours? Is there some kind of quantum entanglement resonance between our brains? This is far too much to be coincidental, I'm convinced of that. In any case, looking forward to more.


Also, references to Lovecraft, Full Life Consequences, and Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff all in the same chapter?

Aha the reference pile does not stop from getting taller!

1978257 Would you prefer J-Train? The J Force? J-Teeth & The Electric Mayhem?

1978303: Doesn't make me too much difference. It's just that I'm too white to be called J-Dogg.:applejackunsure:

The wooden beam made a satisfying crack as it broke under her rock-hard haunches.

I can't stop laughing. :rainbowlaugh:

But can Ditzy see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?:rainbowderp:

1989741 Because it comes with 100% of the recommended daily dose of mind-altering seventh-dimensional brain parasites.

aaand this gets moved from read it later to favs. :yay:

1990619 Those are my favourite kind of parasites!

This story has a criminal shortage of views.

Comment on whole story so far, which I just read... A really amusing story :) Also I am enjoying the writing style. The C&P pastiche was clever :) I think it was a discussion of Bad Machinery on a forum that had a link to this story.

I enjoy this story FAR too much. It's a shame to see it's been neglected so long, and that it isn't as insanely popular as it should be. Anyways, good luck in your writing, (hopefully of the next chapter!) and a wonderful day to you.

When Ditzy returned home, she found a plant, in a pot of ornately carved white wood, sitting on the apartment complex’s front stoop.

Y'all know what they say about potted plants?


5487269 Constable Peeler's backstory has always been that he's from Trottingham and only transferred to Ponyville recently.

Glad to see this continuing! The fia sídhe are agreeably creepy here.

Man, I'm so glad this isn't dead! And may I say you clearly put a lot of good work in on the re-write and it shows. Kudos!
