This story so far is amazing! Good plot, all the ponies are 'in character'. Or as in character as one can get when half your life is a reality show.... Anyway, this idea sounds lovely! I can't wait to read more! :pinkiehappy:

Well I was a fan of the last one.

And that's why the season finale felt so rushed. :rainbowlaugh:

...you have my attention.

lol. I think this is funny, and I Loved the finale.

oh yes this story will do very nicely please keep up the good work :rainbowlaugh:


There is no better word.

lmao keep this story going

Even better than the first one! Keep it up!

wow... just wow no other words to describe but wow

To everyone reading this story, THIS is an example of meta done RIGHT.

AstroBrony, I'm loving the 'behind the scenes' stuff, and even though we know how the final product of the episode turns out, seeing Twilight beat herself up over 'ruining the show' is still rough.

So Surpirse broke the forth² wall two times... That is a new fimfiction record :rainbowlaugh:

Srsly tho, if it weren't for the fact this was a fic and not part of the actual HASBRO storyline, that would make a great Season 3 finale.

So I'll end my praise here with this:

:flutterrage: MOAR :flutterrage:

Ok, wow. Firstly, I just finished your other story, which was all kinds of Meta-goodness ala-Pinky.:pinkiehappy:

Then, I saw this...and honestly, the Alicorn Amulet was a more plausible explanation of how Twi for the Wing Treatment than the Elements reacting to one of Star Swirl's Spells being revised. :ajsmug:

That said though, the main hallmark of both stories, is how you illustrate the friendship and love between our favorite characters, even the ones who don't get as much screen time. All of this, so far, as tugged on my heartstrings...hard! In addition, I'd like to add Chrysalis's antics as Pinky and 'Dusk Shine' were absolutely hilarious and I loved every second of it!!:rainbowlaugh:

In addition, I'd like to ass your portrayal of Twilight has me very interested, as it reflects cannon Twilight more than Fannon Twilight, including her over-reactions, and her rather deep responses to things going out-of-hoof. From here though, I can only say I really, REALLY, need to see how this story ends. Not rushing ya, but you have me very eager for the next part.:eeyup:

Anyway, I wish ya the best of luck and congratulate you on such an unconventional, but very awesome fic! You've done this fandom proud, and made me proud to call myself a brony. :twilightsheepish:

Best magical mystery cure based episode ever made

Now if only there were a 'blooper reel' IRL where this happened. :rainbowlaugh:

I think you did a really great job with this story. Of course, I was in the 'okay, let's see what they do with this' camp when it came to Twilight's ascension anyway, so I'm a little curious what the 'RUINED FOREVER' camp thinks of it.

"No! no bananas! I don’t want any bananas!"
Well fortunately for you, there are no bananas where you're going. :trollestia:

hit the deck, incoming Rarity hissy fit !!!!!!!

bravo by the way

I've3 heard the term love muffin before but the use you used it for was hilarious :rainbowlaugh:

oh CRAP RARITIES GOING NUCLEAR!!!! everypony hit the deck!!
love the story I actually added it to my group cant wait for the next installment XD!!! Wait there IS going to be another installment right!!!
oh my group name is The creation center if you where curious btw.


Well, I wanted to write branch out with some other stories, but I think I'll do a follow-up to this story at some point, perhaps sooner rather than later. :raritywink:

... You wrote a sequel... YES!
I can't wait to see where this goes!

(Quick question, though only tangentially related to the fic - What about Sombra?)

I loved the... Surprise visit and Nth wall breaking, and I love how in-character everyone is, despite the meta nature of the story. Again, these should be actual episodes.


Well, you saw what happened in the episode. Sombra is kind of... dead. :twilightsheepish:

Regardless of my own feelings on the episode (for the record, I'm mainly just kinda 'meh' towards it) this fic is amazing.

2240729 :rainbowlaugh:

2584604 Good point. I wonder how everypony reacted to that, actually... :twilightoops:

Well, this was fantastic, and has actually gotten me to actually love, not just tolerate (see what I did there?) Twilicorn, and I'm excited to see if you do anything more in this universe. It seems like a good frame for commentary on the show, in addition to being just plain FUN. :pinkiehappy:


Well, Rarity fainted during the Sombra thing for starters. :raritydespair:

And as for expanding this universe... well you know that thing Hasbro released the other day? Well, it's really just Lyra's Big Idea. :derpyderp2:

2584686 I imagine that must have been awkward.

Ah, so I see! :pinkiehappy:

I enjoyed the eppie and was in the camp of it was rushed and could have been better if was a two parter...somehow...this made me enjoy the episdoe more.

I will now assimilate this excellent story into my headcannon for why the season finale felt crushed in ideas it had to shove out the second story window.

... still loving this and how rainbow dash dislikes being replaced by lady rainbow lol

2211007 they shouldve made this a season finale special episode . BEHIND THE Scenes of the scene

I had to stop in mid part of the story to comment this. But when pinkie started singing True, True Friend to Twilight and as everypony joined in; l totally have the Feels right now. Oh gosh this is so touching. I sorta of can hear how they would all sound singing it. It makes me shed Liquid Pride. I looooooooove this. If mobil had the following MLP emoticon I would be spamming it all over. I truly love this!!! Now back to reading as I shed liquid pride. Thank you!

Haha it was funny when Pinkie and twilight did their faces and hiw everypony was making follow ups for each others horrid episodes. Overall great story !!!

"Don't forget about that alicorn party!"
"Don't worry I will."

Sounds like pinkie's saying, "Don't worry I will forget about the party." Or is that just me :rainbowhuh:


Um... oops? :twilightsheepish:

Thanks for that catch! I'll fix it

Episode went really well?

That can't happen. Here, take this:

I wonder if Lauren planned this the whole time

Yes Pinkie, yes she did.
By the way, how is Chrysalis' skull after Shining introduced her the the wall?

Thanks to her new wings, reaching the higher shelves was no longer a hassle for her.

Because levitating them down with magic was so hard on her.

"Exploring the Aether for Fun and Profit?"

Twilight's eyes shrunk. She slowly put the book back on the shelf. "I don't think we're ready for that one," she decided.

You never know, could start off a popular episode or 2.
And I'm still waiting for 'lesson zero: alicorn edition', I actually want to see that in the show.

Bravo! This story gets a thumbs-up easily.
I was kind of hoping to see a humorously snarky comment about Twilight's coronation speech from the palace balcony. She turned her backside to the audience for several seconds while introducing her friends. That would be a natural mistake for Twilight, but not for a professional actress. Good thing she was wearing that heavy gown. :twilightblush:

Well, now we know why Rarity got so many centered episodes in the fourth and fifth seasons. I do wonder how you'll plan to explain the change that occurs in 'Twilight's Kingdom'. I doubt that blowing up Golden Oaks Library was something they wanted to do.

So, it looks like Minty is familiar with Steve Urkel.

I have to say, I kind of wish she was in FiM. Your portrayal of her is so darn funny. Would it be okay with you if I find a way to plug your version of her into some of my stories as an old friend of Pinkie's?

6682355 Sure! Go right ahead! :pinkiehappy:

Thanks! And just to let you know, there's a group for Minty fans on this site. I'm adding your story to the group right now.

In future hindsight, the fan and got over twilight princess pretty quickly

...and now I have an urge to do a Lost Episode about Gen 3 returning to Equestria
