This story is a sequel to Hard Reset

After the events of Hard Reset Twilight's life and mental well being are slowly returning to normal. Her recovery is cut short, though, when a letter arrives informing her that the time loop spell she cast is causing severe damage to space and time itself. In over her head, Twilight tries to summon anypony who will know how to fix it. The pony she gets is the last one she ever thought she would meet... and nothing like she expected him to be.

Sequel? Automatic fav and upvote. Will read when it's not midnight. :derpytongue2:

Can I get a HELLS YEAH!? :pinkiegasp:

Not sure if Twiluna, or TwilightxOC or what... but have a fav and upvote while I wait and see which. Should be good.

without reading I will put my hopes in Twilight meeting Changeling Twilight!

Of course, its all your fault, Twilight. But you can fix it. You've got that cosmic screwdriv-- oh, wait. Wrong pony. Yeah, the world is hosed...

Neither actually, although I guess Twilight/somepony might develop by the end. Twilight won't be involved in the main romance arc of this fic, but Luna might...
Chapter Three :raritywink:

This should be fun....

Oh yeah... HELL YEAH.

~Skeeter The Lurker

...um... heck yeah... you know.. if that's OK with you...:fluttershyouch:


Just keep up the awesome my fine writer friend! :pinkiehappy:

Well, given that the world would have ended if she hadn't, I'm not sure if I would call it 'all her fault'.

“Sure, that. I know you explained that to me but I’m still not exactly sure what it is,” said Rainbow Dash. She muttered something about how if a pegasus let it rain on another’s wedding day that pony would be out of a job before the ceremony was even over.

Thank you ever so much for reminding me of my furiously blazing desire to punch Alanis Morissette in the face. :twilightangry2:

Also, fingers crossed that Twilight's blind date is Cloud Kicker. Or Cloud Kicker Two. :pinkiehappy:
(Oh wait, the problem that got "way easier"... yeah, in light of that, chances of such a development are slim. Never mind.)

Time:I´m happy to see you´re recovering. *punches her in the face*

btw: will this involve some kind of time loop too or something different?


oh.... Gonna be honest. This information SEVERELY dampens my enthusiasm for this story... *Le sigh* hrmmmm... I'll return to this later down the line and see which pairings...

Yay sequel! :yay:

And Twilight should end up with Lyra, because I don't think it's ever been done before. Unless you already have a better idea, of course. Like Starswirl the Bearded!

You know, you write a great pinkie pie. I actually stood up and gestured to the screen going "WHAT... THE FUCK... JUST HAPPENED?!"

That ending tied it altogether nicely, and the chapter in general really shows that you know how to show off the "normal" side of characters while their not in the middle of saving Equestria. Good, solid character building that really defines Twilight and her friends beyond their base plate personalities.

And once again, that endding! Classically dramatic!

I just discovered Hard Reset a week ago and its now one of my all time favorites. I can't believe my luck that its getting a sequel so soon after i finished it :pinkiehappy:

I just read Hard Reset yesterday. All I have to say is YESYESYESYESYESYESYES..


I knew it! :flutterrage: But I'm sure they will put aside there differences to fix this I mean, it's Twilight! :twilightsmile:

I can see it now Changeling Twi geeking out over Starswirl as the other Changelings give their queen weird looks

Lingerie & Refrigerators...wat?

Does this involve a Time Monkey in any way? Or meat cakes, cause I hate meat cakes.

Twilight, you did it again. What's with this mare and causing the end of existence? :twilightsheepish:

Yeah, mine too. Damn you, Alanis!

And it IS Cloud Kicker, so who knows?

>btw: will this involve some kind of time loop too or something different?

I can confidently answer: Yes!

Yeah, Pinkie's fun, and she tends to get all the good lines. I'm looking forward to a fic that will be a bit more grounded that Hard Reset was, hence the Slice of Life tag.

It's right next to Quills and Sofas, I think. :ajsmug:

Personally, I root for Twilight/Celestia or Twilight/Spike. But that's just me. And, hey, sequel. Awesome. Twilight/Fluttershy, since she was mentioned, is also adorable.

“You,” I say. “Because you’re hot.

Not bad for a very first attempt after recovering from PTSD.

Like this coffee. Only with sexiness instead of boiling water and dissolved particles of ground up beans. Not that I’m objectifying you, I mean I’m sure you have lots of other nice qualities that also somehow relate to coffee, I just didn’t want to imply that I thought you were literally the same temperature as the coffee even though I guess that’s what I said. If you had a body temperature as high as hot coffee you’d die in agony as you were cooked alive from the inside out oh Celestia why am I still talking?” I clamp my mouth closed before I can do any more damage. The two mares staring at me in silence is somehow even worse. Maybe I can salvage this?

Twilight, what are you doing!

“Wait, no, caffeine! You’re like the coffee because we’ll be up all night, the implication being that we’ll be banging! But then as our relationship goes on I’ll develop a terrible case of insomnia, and I’ll cheat on you with tea to try to wean myself away until eventually a doctor tells me I have to quit you cold turkey because I’m developing heart palpitations and odd muscle tremors.”

Twilight! Stop!

I picked the right day to actually read Hard Reset. I literally had just finished reading perfect run when I go to the next chapter and realize the number of unread chapters in my favorites box was still two, when it should have been one. Click on the link and boom, sequel, posted right then. Score.:pinkiehappy:

My parents gave me the talk about the stalactites and the geodes years ago,” says Pinkie.

Ha!, rock farm, I get it.

Hard Reset was awesome. I have HIGH EXPECTATIONS YOUNG MAN/WOMAN/OTHER!:trollestia::twilightblush:

Star Swirl is Twilight?

>Marked [Comedy]
>Twilight gets put on suicide watch
I'm sure that this is just a transitional step, though, and the yuks will start next chapter, right? :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright:

(I did like the 'Lingerie & Refrigerators' bit, though. I don't think I'll ever get tired of that joke.)

Okay, I'm hooked again :facehoof: How dare you! MOAR! :flutterrage:

Yeah, I suppose that was a tad awkward. Still, I had a lot of feedback saying I should add a comedy tag to Hard Reset even as Twilight died horribly a number of times. She's better now, even if she's not 100% she won't be trying to kill herself any more.


Sounds like a lot for guy to live up to, but I'll try.

Inspired by the "Bucket of Ear" scene from Coupling.

While this most likely isn't what's going to happen, it's always been my head canon that Starswirl was a mare. I mean 'the bearded' just seems so strange a title, like a historical in-joke. She pissed of some nobles in her time so they wrote in the record books as her being a stallion.

Which is why when I read the story description I thought it was going to end up Twi/Starswirl. Still, all in all, great first chapter.

The Star Swirl toy is in fact a mare, so there you go.

Is your title from the Kim Possible movie A Stitch in Time?

Never seen it, so nope! It's from the old saying "A stitch in time saves nine," or from A Wrinkle In Time.

I like this story so very much.

The writing is just so clever. It's funny and crazy and wow.
I can't say that the Mane 6 are out of character, the pacing is spot on, all those bits of foreshadowing are super exciting, etc.

Can't wait to see where this goes!

I’m trapped in a time loop and the only way for me to get out of it is for us to bang

Hm. Why does this line seem so familiar to me?

I never took Applejack for a Shipper On Deck. But why not?

That ending... :rainbowlaugh:

I love it! I'm so happy you made a sequel, cause I wanted more of Hard Reset Twi since the story ended. Great story so far!


I really hope you have a good reason for writing a sequel.

I like how one night of catharsis isn't enough to fix Twilight.

I love how her friends are smart enough to know this.
