My Pokemon Mystery Dungeon styled story is now complete. Non-Pony. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12281852/1/PMD-Worldforged-Exile



This story is a sequel to Observations and Motivations

When a secret message was discovered inside Starswirl's journal, Twilight Sparkle spends several years trying to uncover it's cryptic secrets, including just how and why the deceased conjurer of old has managed to leave a message just for her. The things she learns on her journey will bring her to question everything she knows, and the events that are thrust upon the unicorn might very well be the end of her and everything she holds dear.

This is the third story in the Observations Universe!

Finished in Motivations: Relics of Antiquity!

A few grammatical errors and typos, but it seems interesting.

Ok... Intriguing start.

There's no possible way this could end badly! :twilightsmile:

It contained portions which Tsilight (right near the beginning).

The story is good though. Fav and + while waiting for updates.

Sorry about that. Fixed! :twilightblush:


Name typos are always the biggest of pains. I mean for my own fics I realized you can right click a word and add it to the dictionary on the browser. This really helps with names.

2053811 INCOMING MURPHY'S LAW :pinkiecrazy:

So lets not find out... Poof — Twilight vanishes, leaving a surprised and and angry Luna.

2083569 I think I mentioned that Luna knows how to track regular teleportation back in Observations.

Well, that doesn't sound foreboding at all. Nope.

it is kinda impressive. the similarities, i mean.

Deleted them?
That's mildly ominous.

Welcome Neo Twilight to the training simulator program...

Well, that *was* the next most likely outcome. :twilightsheepish:

*the gates of tartarus shatter* YOU FOOL! YOU'VE DOOMED US ALL!!

wow that ending!

:rainbowdetermined2: Glad you liked it!
:fluttercry: It's a shame that more people don't stick around for the finale though.

As the theory stood, the entirety of the universe may very well be a simulation created by the inhabitants of another universe. If this was true, then the project would most likely be doomed to fail, with humans being unable to create a simulation within a simulation. Even in failure, they would at least have their answer.

How does that follow? Neither result actually proves anything. A "success" could simply mean the original simulation is sufficiently powerful to accomodate recursion. A "failure" could simply be due to insufficient resources, or insufficient understanding of the thing being simulated, rather than a fundamental limitation.

How do you measure the success or failure, anyway?

So, big machine built by crazy people.

6886719 Humanity is sufficiently advanced at this point in the story to have had all the necessary materials required to build and operate such a system. Failure of a system of sufficient means would either say that universe wasn't fractally recursive, even if it didn't exactly prove whether or not we were in such a simulation. Success meant that the system was able to run as intended, showing that either we weren't in a simulated universe(where fractal recursion is impossible), or that we weren't in a simulation because we were at the top. :twilightsheepish:


Big machine. Built by crazy people. :pinkiecrazy:

The feels in this chapter. :fluttershysad:

Tears have been shed, damn if that wasn't moving. :applecry: Good stuff so far. :twilightsmile:

Definitely worth the the read to the end.:twilightsmile:


Glad you liked it. :raritystarry: It's not often I get to employ an emotional roller-coaster. :raritywink:

7344459 Thank you for writing such fun stories to read. I should mention there were quite a few parts that made me laugh too, but since I usually read these on my phone I don't comment as often as I'd like. :twilightsheepish:
Either way keep up the good work. :raritystarry:

I do hope there's a human-readable decoded bit…?

After all, who would be capable of breaking into a secret hidden vault that only a handful of ponies, in all of Equestria, even had a suspicion of existing.

Questions should have question marks

dark purple main.


The required effort for preventing her suspecting something is rather too large. First, subdue and knock her out (the big expenditure). Then, brain-dive for who's on the shortlist of "who can modify memory and steal that crystal". Then, take her by teleportation to another suspect's place, remove them from the scene if necessary, and make it seem like Luna visited them before getting mindwiped. Then, leave on hoof for a ways before teleporting away.

"SILENCE!" Celestia left no room for argument.

Weird that she's cuttin' Luna off angrily when Luna's not the guilty party.

there is a great many things
