Pegasus Rescue Brigade

Diminutive Equine Novelist


Where did the CMC get that industrial-sized pet hairdryer, anyway?

Just a quick little fic I made after the premiere of "Just for Sidekicks", featuring the popular character Kilowatt Hour from my "Shipping and Handling" fic universe. You don't need to read "Shipping and Handling" to understand this, but it might be funnier if you do.

I find it funny that the note was longer than the description itself.:pinkiehappy:

Oh no...

Let me read this then get back to you.

[edit after reading] Oh god. I can't stop giggling!

this was kinda funny I'm reading this at 1:00am though :ajsleepy:

This actually made quite a bit of sense.

2028953 Quite so. And of course, Watt needed two of them the whole time, and not just one. :facehoof::twilightblush:

Yes, this was quite enjoyable.
I felt like such a nerd when I instantly knew that aluminum oxide was the ruby.

Every time I read Watt's dialogue, I think he sounds like Fenton Crackshell from DuckTales speaking really loud and REALLY fast.

*facepalms and laughs* Good stuff PRB but for me it falls a bit flat he doesn't just *tell* then why he needs it.

That was pretty fun. Nothing ground-breaking, but a nice bit of entertainment before the true sequel comes. I liked it! :scootangel:


Really? I imagine more Megavolt from Darkwing Duck myself, especially given their respective powers.


Well that would have kinda destroyed the point of the antics now, wouldn't it?

:rainbowlaugh: Doesn't matter though, really. I put literally zero effort into storyline and characterization. It's a joke fic XD.


Well, Megavolt has a very crass sound to his voice. Plus, his voice doesn't quite do well when he's speaking too fast. But either way, Watt sounds like a Disney Afternoon character.


You guys wanna know what Watt sounds like?

Allow me to direct you to the blooper reel for the (still in production) audio version of "Shipping and Handling."


This video contains the outtakes from a whole bunch of characters. Skip to 3:53 and take a listen.
THAT is what Watt sounds like. :pinkiehappy:


OK, that does sound better for Watt than Megavolt's voice. On an unrelated note, was that the YouTube voice actor who does the unofficial voice of Derpy as far as the fandom's concerned? If so, then that's pretty neat.

Congratulations on getting an audio version for your fic, by the way. You've earned it as far as I'm concerned. :pinkiesmile:


Nope, the typical unofficial fan voice of Derpy is BaldDumboRat.

Our actor, Heathrin18, typically voice acts for other characters, but her Derpy voice is adorable so she got the part.


Yeah, that might've been a bad example, though, since I completely butchered that line. Heh. You got to hear a hint of it, but the final cuts of lines tend to be a lot louder and more energetic than that. :P

Oh. And you already know Watt I think of this story, PRB: Per-FECTION.

WAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTT YOU ARE BAAAAAAAACKKKK I love you PRB:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:


Thanks, I guess. :twilightblush:
This was just a little joke written in one day. It doesnt live up to my usual quality of writing but I'm glad you like it.

This is why you are my favorite author. Nice surprise and a brilliant little one shot you have here.

as aid before, I can't wait for Hocus Pocus. That is going to be a great day:pinkiehappy:

*reads AN* :pinkiegasp: It's NOT?
Damn, there really needs to be a sarcasm font

Pretty good for a one-off joke fic. Though if I have to nitpick, the scene breaks were weird in the way they looked like they were meant to just be a big line, but were too long and spilled over into the next line. Also "ok" should ideally be either "OK" in all capitals or "okay". Other than that, I have no complaints.

I'm surprised his nickname isn't Amp or Amperage.

2205229 Well, seeing as how when I speak (and I imagine him speaking in a similar manner), I'll usually get a "What." as a response, especially if it's a weird thing I say, then "Watt" as his nickname makes sense, because on the internet, "wat", "wut", and "whut" are all different 'shorter' ways of typing "what", and Watt has the same spelling (mostly) of the first, Wat. So, therefore, Watt is a perfectly good nickname for him. I wonder how nickname came to be a word in the MLP universe. Was there a pony named Nick or Richard?

This story makes sense to me. How could the CMC get such a huge machine for such a tiny ruby? Either rubies are ridiculously valuable, or they had the pony they got it from over a barrel. Still, if only he'd noticed the monitor used the plural at the beginning.

2032047 I picture him sounding kinda like a male Pinkie Pie.

Technically rubies in real life are actually the most valuable gemstone ever :raritystarry: even when diamonds are thought to be the more valuable. "Prices are dependent on origin, color, size, and clarity: from a low of $100 to $15,000/ ct maximum." (http://www.gemsociety.org/info/gems/ruby.htm)

O.M.G. :rainbowlaugh: Everything makes sense now. I have reached enlightenment.:yay:

A highly entertaining way to explain the unexplainable.:pinkiehappy:

do wonder what on Eqestria he did next (chances are simuler to what he did in the extra chapture) if hes worth his salt he probably but the turbine back in later...I do not have to point out why.

the song he is singing is based off of what i wonder.

Smushing work!:ajsmug:

Author Interviewer

Well, that was fun. :) Though I can't for the life of me figure out what you meant by "Watt's pace". Path?

Yep, that's what it's supposed to say.
This fic has existed for how long now? Like a year and four months. And somehow no one's ever pointed that error out.

It always makes me nervous when people I know read this fic, since it's more of a joke than an attempt at a good story. :twilightsheepish:

Author Interviewer

Well, I enjoyed it. :)

Well that cover art is a mini blast from my past :O

Any story with Kilowatt Hour is a story I'm gonna read so excuse me while I get right on that. :P

Hey, you're the one who made that vector, aren't you? :pinkiehappy:
Don't worry, it links back to you if clicked.

An enjoyable short and simple story.
