Rarity's family name is in shambles, and her fortune is nonexistent. To return what her father squandered, she and her good friend Pinkie Pie turn to piracy, commandeering a magical airship and kidnapping the princess's personal student.

When Princess Celestia learns of Twilight and Applejack's abduction, she doesn't agree to pay the ransom. No, she hires the sky's greatest tactical mind, the Daring Swordspony Rainbow Dash, and her sidekick, Fluttershy. As the two groups engage in a game of cat and mouse, more dangerous threats hang on the horizon. Aztec Curses, angry gods, and a mysterious figure known only as the Derp Pirate Roberts.

Will the six Elements of Harmony be able to gather the seven pieces of eight, or will the world fall to utter chaos, and rise up as an empire of anarchy and piracy?

Okay, this actually sounds funny! :rainbowkiss: Will follow.

Will the six Elements of Harmony gather the seven pieces of eight? Nein! But ten, at least they try.

amazing man cant wait for an update

god dammit you beat me to it! i wanted to write something like this!

I don't usually favorite an adventure story, but you got me hooked :pinkiehappy: Is it interrogation time for Twilight? :twilightoops:

Anyways, looking forward to more of this!

This certainly seems relevant to my interests! :raritystarry:

Edit: And it is! Please keep writing.

"Derp Pirate Roberts"
You are mad you know, mad mad MAD!
Then again, we're all mad here.
*Fave'd, and thumb-uped*

Oh, definitely watching this. intriguing to say the least. Do continue this.

Nicely done. Favoriting this. One question though, are the airships because steampunk or because of the airship in "I'm the Type of Pony"?


Steampunk and magic. Sails and wooden hulls rather than giant balloons.


The mental image.....
I'm going to quote a semi applicable elf.
"I should avoid casting any spells tonight, if only to give the laws of physics time to cry alone in the corner."

The coolness factor of literal flying wooden ships is well worth it.


These ships run on rule of cool, so they don't put nearly as much strain on physics as an overweight dragon.

Song is win? song is win. Excellent.

Glad to see you caught the reference. And cool is an ecologically friendly alternative fuel.

Man, all it's missing is the frame of someone telling the story. I really look forward to more; is this going to be a long-running fic?

Here we go... Shining Armor, you're in for an adventure!

whats this, like Pirates of the Caribbean, only in the sky and not the sea? cool. keep up the good work. hope to see more.:rainbowdetermined2:

Shining Armor as Shining Armor,
Rainbow Dash, as a Pirate Captain.

I eagerly await whatever wonderfully despicable fate you have waiting for Fluttershy. My guess is barmaid.

Yes! Another chapter! :pinkiehappy: Can't wait for more!

I'm enjoying this so far, and it looks like there's alot to look forward to. Hope the chapters grow in length as we progress.:twilightsmile:

How can a pony hold cards with hooves? Pirate superpowers ! :rainbowwild:

How in hell would Rainbow be able to hold a hand of cards? Some people have issues with that and we have 10 digits.:rainbowhuh:

So, the captain of the guard couldn't take on the whole inn all by himself!? It's a pirate story! :flutterrage:

Seriously though, I like where this is going.

Not until after he's disgraced, thrown out the Guard, and takes a level in badass.

Are you gonna put this up on EqD? Cause you should totally put this on EqD. Do it do it do it do it.

This is shaping up wonderfully. I had completely forgotten someone other than Trixie talks in the third person.


Probably, once I stop being lazy and get it edited. My goal for now is getting it in the featured box on fimfiction. First time I've had trouble with it.

I find myself wanting to know what Flutters is doing with these type of ponies. My mind is already drawing up all kinds of solutions, Dash and Shy orphans from filly years?dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Rainbow_Dash.png

I thought it was just because the rest of the gang had already been assigned different roles in this story, and Fluttershy was just what was left. :rainbowwild:

Seriously though, I've been enjoying this story thus far, looking forward to more. :twilightsmile:

Short one today, just want to show the big groups out there.

I might be interested in reading this, but I'm not gonna start unless someone can assure me that Spike has as much "screentime" as the Elements. Anyone?


He doesn't have any *yet*, and I don't know if he'll be as major a character as the rest, so no promises.

I require only promises of swashbuckling. Can you guarantee that buckles will be swashed?


:rainbowhuh: Do you doubt the daring Dash's ability to buckle swashes?



Im with this guy. there is a distinct lack of swashed buckles on this site.

Discord the pirate king...that is all.

Where this is going.
I think I like it.
Wait, wait. Don't tell me. The last group came from the west?

Fun story so far, but why are the chapters so short? I am sort of amazed actually, stories with chapters thus short usually aren't written so well. Still would like some longer chapters though.

"I don't think we should be here," the cowpony said, leaning on the fourth wall.

.....:rainbowderp::twilightoops: Is Braeburn related to Pinkie?
