Wise Cracker

Just some guy who likes chaos magic, ponies, and Blender. Getting moderately good at vector art in Inkscape and Synfig, learning animation, maybe some web design when he can.


The Cutie Mark Crusaders are off on another mission from the Friendship Map, this time to Cornucopia, the home of Starlight Glimmer's former master.

But when they're faced with a problem they thought had been taken care of ages ago, tensions flare up, old wounds are opened, and the girls find themselves up to their ears in Timberwolves.

Figuratively speaking, of course.

Chapters (5)

This story is a sequel to The Worst 'Ling For the Job

The changeling Hive is getting back in business, and that means getting some defences in place. Taking a cue from Celestia, Thorax sends his brother Pharynx to purchase the best kind of defences:

Guard animals. From Cratus Thundereye, the Ancient Beast Dealer, and owner of Cratus's Crazy Critters.

What should be a simple shopping trip for Pharynx quickly devolves into a trek to a forbidden valley, numerous near-death situations for the ponies he got saddled with, a grudge match with a spectre from his past, and him having to *ugh* talk about his feelings.

Chapters (1)


Scootaloo's had her heart set on the Sisterhooves for ages now, and Vinyl Scratch promised she'd take her niece and help win the big prize.

If only Vinyl Scratch hadn't been up doing a concert the night before. And why is Spike joining in with an obviously sleep-deprived Twilight Sparkle?

It's a day of chaos, as it becomes a contest to see who's the better sister figure, who's got what it takes to beat the opposition, and who's going to faint and/or vomit first: Vinyl or Twilight?

Chapters (6)

It's the day after the changelings ascended to their new form, thanks to the newly crowned King Thorax.

Only... he wasn't actually crowned King, and none of the changelings voted for him, and to be perfectly honest, he probably isn't the right 'ling for the job.

Why should he be King, anyway? More importantly, can he answer the question before the enemy army arrives?

Chapters (1)

Written for the Scootaloo Fiction Contest, but withdrawn from competition as of 30/05/2017 by the author.

Scootaloo has finally gotten off the ground, and she couldn't be more excited.

Unfortunately, life decides to burst her bubble again, and a tragic accident leads her to question the fundamentals of flight, of life, and responsibility.

Also donuts. Because donuts matter.

Chapters (1)

Rainbow Dash has been writing a novel about a mare who is totally not a substitute for herself. It's not bad, obviously, but it's not fit for publication yet. And some of the characters... miiight be a teensy tiny bit offensive to her friends.

So when she realises she lost it somewhere in Ponyville, obviously she rushes to get it back before anyone can read her messy (but still awesome!) first draft.

Now if only she had the common sense to keep quiet about her search, too...

Chapters (4)

This story is a sequel to Junior Flight Camp: The Crusader and the Bullhead

(Cover art relevant to chapter 19.)

It's been a few months since Scootaloo learned to fly at Flight Camp, and she still hasn't brought her flying buddy over for some strange reason. But an opportunity presents itself: the Warrior Meet, a gathering of martial artists from all over Equestria and a chance to get lessons from the best. Surely that's enough reason for the little martial artist to finally come to Ponyville?

But a lot has changed since Flight Camp, and Scootaloo is reluctant to admit just what. As if that wasn't enough, the girls have to contend with an armoured alicorn prince and a ninja school hiding an even greater threat... one closer to home.

It's a whirlwind journey of self-discovery, complete with action, drama, comedy, and, of course, flashbacks interrupting the action, drama, and comedy! Also weekly updates! Expect a chapter every Saturday, and exclamation marks in the chapter titles, like any good manga.

Chapters (27)

This story is a sequel to Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Rumble's such a nice boy, helping out Scootaloo with her flying issues. It's really high time for the Cutie Mark Crusaders to repay him for his kindness.

Only one problem: if he was going to get his cutie mark in flying, he'd have gotten it ages ago. And they can't exactly turn him into a Wonderbolt, like he wants to.

But luck smiles on Sweetie Belle when she finds the next best thing: a pair of potential playmates for Rumble. Now she just needs to get them together.

Without the help from Diamond Tiara, the only pony who might actually be of any help in the matter.

And without letting Rumble know, obviously. He's a boy: they hate this sort of thing. It's for his own good.

This may get tricky.

Chapters (4)

This story is a sequel to Rumble's Big Day

There is nothing wrong with Scootaloo. She just can't fly yet. Rainbow Dash knows this, and continues to work hard to get that filly off the ground.

There is nothing wrong with Rumble. He's just a little uptight about his flight practice. Thunderlane knows this, and keeps trying to teach his brother the fun and exciting aerial manoeuvres of the Wonderbolts.

Thunderlane is convinced Rainbow Dash is going to hurt Scootaloo if she keeps this up.

Rainbow Dash is convinced Rumble is going to hurt himself if Thunderlane keeps this up.

You know what they say: "If you think you can do better than me, do it yourself."

(Former working title: "SOON TO BE PONYGRAD'S FAVORITE FIC")

Chapters (5)

After another session of failed flight, Scootaloo and her friends decide to do some research. Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo check out the archives of the Foal Free Press, and Apple Bloom finds herself interviewing Ponyville's strongest young flyer: Rumble, Thunderlane's little brother.

More specifically, she interviews him on how he trained for Ponyville's turn at tornado duty.

Turns out being a little ace ain't all it's cracked up to be.
