good thing vinyl brought the machette

Interesting start and a good read to say the least, do continue!i.imgur.com/mmjN8.png

Ohhhh damn. For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island! Oh glorious day!

Anyways, I enjoyed this story so far. I find it quite interesting to see how this will turn out since they both have such different personalities and such. Will fav!

Keep it up bro! :rainbowkiss:

yea umm i think octy was right they were going the wrong way

“Let’s see…” began Octavia, opening her lunchbox, “… I have apples, carrots, and celery stalks. Oh, and colourful flowers too.”

That sounds...familiar... :trixieshiftright:


HA! I didn't notice it 'till you pointed it out. Nice.

Great story so far. Don't know why, but at the quicksand part I was thinking of The Scorpion King.:twilightoops: Can't wait for another update. And what do you mean by "pulp-y"?

I might be able to update tomorrow or Thursday, it depends upon how lazy I get. And as for pulp-y, I mean I want it to feel a bit like pulp magazines of the 20's and 30's. Very Indiana Jones-esque stuff.

Glad to see that you enjoy it! :pinkiehappy:


Oh. Thanks for explaining. That link helped.I love Lovecraft and The Phantom.

Well, I await your update.:twilightsmile:

2036145 I made the same joke in a story I still have yet to publish. It's been sitting there, waiting for me to write more on it before I send it in for approval.

so i take it vinyl is trying to find the graves of somepony she knew a long time ago

Vinyl’s impulsiveness and lack of concern for her own wellbeing was making her more and more impatient to get back to the tour group.

well being*

Spotting Vinyl’s saddlebag lying where Vinyl had collapsed, a new idea occurred to Octavia.If

Octavia. If*

Good chapter. I have a feeling that Octavia may break that promise, at least for a minute. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

Oops, thanks for pointing out those errors. Fixed now.

I'm sorta busy over the next few days, so I don't know when I'll be able to update. Glad to see that you're enjoying it so far though!

It is stupidly stupid.
You told us to tell you how stupid it was...

At least… that’s what he said that last time I talked to him.”

that (the second one) or replace it with "the"

Also, you should use pronouns more often. I saw a couple sentences and paragraphs where you would use Vinyl a lot. It kinda disrupted flow (for me). Like here:

She could see why Vinyl was so determined to complete her self-appointed mission, yet at the same time couldn’t find it in her heart to empathise enough to accompany Vinyl.

You should replace one of the Vinyl's with the appropriate pronoun. Also, commas after "yet" and "time".

Great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

Oops! Thanks again for picking up on my errors! I realise the non-using-as-many-pronouns-as-I-should thing can be a bit annoying, but I worry that if I use too many "she" and "her"s in a sentence, it can get confusing as to whether Octavia or Vinyl are being referred too. I forget whether there's a grammar rule to do with that.

Would you like to proofread future chapters?

Sure. I would be honored.:twilightsmile:

Awesome, I'll send you PM's whenever I finish a chapter then.

Thank you, I really appreciate it! :pinkiehappy:

Very nice (This is DoctorWhooves69 incase you were wandering)



Another great chapter. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:

Yes. Yes you have.
In other news, this was an excellent chapter to an already excellent story.

“Of course I am, Tavi. You’re the hottest mare I know.”
There was a moment of silence before the two friends burst out laughing.

SHIPPING!! (And Vinyl laughed so Tavi thought she was joking so she wouldn't hate her for being gay and having a crush on her)

'Nuther great chapter. I like how this is coming along. Can't wait for more.:twilightsmile:


For once! A story about Vinyl and Octavia getting lost in some place that ISN'T an island!


Nah, that's all right; An Island isn't my best story :twilightsmile:


As for the story itself, I'm enjoying it so far. Came for the syvvak, stayed for the plot. :scootangel:

Thank you! :twilightsmile: I've been reading An Island and so far it's pretty good fun!

And that, my dear Tavi, is why you never help the bad guy. That is why the good path is so much harder.

Great chap, Doc. Really coming along nice. Can't wait for more.


wow that was really low, she saved his life out of the goodness of her heart and in return he condemns her

Octavia, you just can't go one story without getting shipped via FedEx

It was another great chapter Doc. That friendshipping scene was cute. I can't wait for more.

When Octavia tried to "attack hug" Vinyl, I immediately thought about her doing it anime style:

"VINYL-CHAN, DESUUU~" *Glomp* :pinkiecrazy:

And then another chapter for bonus clop an epilogue.

It was a great OctaScratch friendshipping. Loved it from start to finish.. I can't wait for more OctaScratch from you, man.

Thank you! Comments like this really do make my day!

The next story I have in mind is OctaScratch, but it's just a one-shot. Hopefully I can continue to satisfy :raritywink:

That was, indeed, satisfying.
Thank you for providing this to lighten up my day. OctaScratch is always fun to read, the characters just seem to bounce off so well.
Keep writing~

so will they be using the flower or with they be taking the seeds and try to grow more and possibly return some to the temple later

So glad I finally got around to reading the conclusion of this.

Any story that pairs up Vinyl and Octavia in a non-romantic fashion is always something I'm interested in checking out, and this story--despite a bit of a mouthful for a name--was pretty good in that.

I think my biggest critique of it is the rather open-ended ending. It's left really unclear whether the flower they got was actually important in any way or if it just happened to be there. A little resolution on that point might have been nice.

Glad to hear you liked it! I purposely left the stuff with the flower ambiguous because I thought it would be a bit unlikely that they could instantly tell that the flower was the treasure. I did hint pretty strongly that it was the treasure though, and I purposely left it open to interpretation so that people can make their own headcanons as to whether it is the real treasure.

Thanks for reading! :twilightsmile:

Found an error. Sorry :rainbowlaugh:

There were, however, a few temples and tombs build by ancient tribes marked on the map.


Other than that, loving this fic :twilightsmile:
