Pennington Inkwell


T

Graduation was supposed to be a happy day for the Rainbooms. Sunset and Princess Twilight had both agreed to temporarily shut the portal to Equestria so they could leave CHS safe and sound while they went on a post-graduation band tour. However, instead of SHUTTING the portal, they somehow made it explode, shattering the multiverse and scattering the Rainbooms across countless different universes. Now, Sunset Shimmer finds herself face-to-face with creatures straight out of dreams and nightmares, from the pages of legend to the screen of cinema.

Her best chance to reunite with her friends and get home: a self-proclaimed "Giant Nerd" and his old jalopy of a car, both of which are native to a world of silent observers of the multiverse, including her own life with the Rainbooms. Between his guidance and her courage, the two of them are determined to reunite the Rainbooms and get them back home...

Even if that means facing ink demons, xenomorphs, genocidal time-looping children, or even Egyptian god cards.

((The most blatant of self-insert fics. I am 100% aware of that. This is just a project to help me unwind.))

Tempest Shadow had been surprised when Princess Twilight had offered her friendship. She had been even more surprised when Twilight stood up for her in her trial, helping her gain legal absolution from her past.

Now, she is trying to start with a clean slate, turning to the familiar military structure of Equestria's Night Guard. Upon arriving at the New Lunar Republic for her training, however, she finds that legal forgiveness does not mean Equestria has forgotten her past. Now, winning one instructor's good word is all that stands between her and moving forward with her life.

But why oh WHY did Princess Twilight have to send her to a pony so STUBBORN?

Sometimes, I have a brilliant or hilarious idea that I need to write out immediately. Sometimes, a particularly potent holiday comes around that I feel the need to celebrate.

Sometimes, I just get bored.

Thus, the genre of short stories known as "Bonus Chapters" emerged. Not canon to the show or the rest of my stories, written either on a whim, out of inspired comedy, or even as dictated by a vote from my followers.

Now, for the sake of tone, pacing, and the sanity of my readers, I have removed those chapters from their native habitat and placed them all here. This is where they can be safely observed as they were meant to be: from a distance, with little to no context, and purely at the whim of the reader.

Let those who enter beware: canon and fanon mean nothing here. Precedent is unprecedented.

*In all seriousness, the only context you might need here is some knowledge of the OC's identities and backgrounds, which you can get from reading the other assorted stories. Aside from this, don't worry. If you're confused, that is perfectly normal. But these bonus chapters were beginning to seriously detract from my other stories.*

This story is a sequel to Happy Adventuring, Twilight!


Two months after bringing the changelings to Canterlot, Princess Luna calls Pennington Inkwell and his assistant back to Equestria.

Taking the opportunity to atone for his past actions, Penn and Moonstone leap into action, setting out to find the attacker and stop them. Little do they know that they'll be delving into secrets far more dangerous than wandering unprotected through dragon country.

Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle and Calalily Curl meet a strange pony who seems to know more than he ought to about Pennington's past. On his word, the three set out to save Pennington from an unknown traitor waiting to spring a trap on him. But is Delta Raider to be trusted?

A Sequel to "Happy Adventuring, Twilight!" and Part 2 of the Happy Adventuring Saga.

This story is a sequel to Happy Adventuring, Twilight!


After storming out of Ponyville in a fury, aggravated with those who refuse to understand why he does what he does, Pennington Inkwell decides to blow off steam in one of his favorite haunts: the Everfree forest.

As he travels deeper into the forest than he has dared in past times, Pennington discovers what appears to be an abandoned, run-down carnival. Abandoned, that is, with the exception of a mysterious pony who insists upon calling herself a cat. Crazy? Maybe. But as he is lured deeper and deeper into the mystery, the spirit of the carnival begins to take hold, bidding him to stay a little longer... Will he ever make it home?

((Carnival Cat is used with permission from Sand Josieph on youtube. The original video, "Carnival Cat vs. Ponyville, can be found on youtube. This is a tie-in to my other story, "Happy Adventuring, Twilight!", which I would highly suggest you read for a better understanding. However, the story will be able to stand on its own, so if you only came for the Carnival Cat, ENJOY!))

On a night of storms, when the winds were whipping and the rain was pounding against his window, Pennington never expected to have anypony come knocking at his door. Never in his wildest dreams would he have imagined it to be a shivering, waterlogged blue-and-silver mare, in need of a roof over her head and a way of earning a few bits.

To Pennington, taking in Trixie as a tenant in his home seemed like nothing, but as the two of them worked with one another more and more, something seemed to grow between the two of them... Something blossomed in their hearts that neither of them had ever felt before.

Until the day Pennington's world came to a stop. Until the day his life seemed to shatter.


((A prequel to "Happy Adventuring, Twilight!" The inspiration for this came to mind on Hearts and Hooves Day. Personally, I always thought that Trixie had a lot more to her than was ever shown in her episodes, and this is an effort on my part to show a little bit of her story.))
