Well, yes, that ending was very cheesy. But I like it!

Also, this might be a terrible idea, but do we get permission to turn this into an RP like Stalliongrad Blues or the Brennenburg Castle thing by Fniff and you? Because it would be the perfect setup for one and I certainly feel inspired to write something up and at least Armok and Sean had some ideas, too. I haven't (yet) written anything because I wanted to wait for this story to end first. Not that we technically need the permission, but still, it would feel wrong to me to take your ideas and turn them into something different.

Oh, talking about the Amnesia thing, did Fniff and you write on that one a bit more?

The Amnesia thing's hit a bit of a snag because me and Fniff have come to the discovery that our schedules are going to be conflicting for a week or two.

We have done a bit of work with it (Armok joined in, too) but I don't know how much. I'll see about making a thread for it.

Anyway, you do have permission to turn it into an RP. I think it's going to be interesting seeing everyone trying to figure out what they'd do if they suddenly woke up in Equestria.

Wait, what if Rainbow Dash finds you as a pony and is put off by that? From what I understand, she has a little human fetish going :p

I'm not sure that EqD will accept it since they ask for no self-inserts. I guess I could try, though.

And yes, Rainbow does have a human fetish, and the plan was to have her be disappointed. How disappointed, and how it will affect the story, I'm still unsure about.

I'd like to join an RP, although I should warn you that I literally can't think of ANY non-godmode-sueish way for me to act that wouldn't be ENTIRELY out of character, for the simple reason I would never pass up an opportunity to be godlike or sueish and Equestria presents innumerable such opportunities, and you can't get rid of those without making the place no longer recognizable as Equestria. Things like "magic exists" and "it's obviously fiction".

Also: it's not "The Amnesia thing", it's called Diversity (I THINK we all agreed on that title?), and Amnesia and MLP are just two of the many things it references.

Look, mate, I read most of the third thread and a name never came up. You might have agreed on that title via PMs, but you never posted it publicly.
I'll change its name in the story compilation asap.

That's one of the main reasons I never join RPs. (the other being me being unable to roleplay much of anything) My character is too much of a Sue, even though he keeps to himself the overwhelming majority of the time. He's not without flaws, by far, and shares some of my mental state problems, but being the Multiverse equivalent of a Plainswalker, he's prone to solving any problem he decides to solve in the most straightforward and direct way possible. Also, said tendency to stay on the sidelines doesn't make him very good RP material.

In any case, consider him to "always be there, silently watching".
He might pop in at an unexpected moment to prevent some universe-ending catastrophe only he can see.

Unfortunately, no pony picture for *headdesk*, although I can remember a few instances. *Facehoof* will have to suffice.

Better picture:

Well, I've done some work on the sequel. I don't know if it will be as good as the original. Probably not, honestly. But I'll try my best.

Awww, that's actually pretty sweet!

I just think it's weird that he was a pony for all of two paragraphs until he decided otherwise. But I guess it makes sense that way.

I meant to add something meta about it, like one of the characters saying "well, that was anticlimactic" or something. I forget exactly why I didn't, probably couldn't find a way to fit it in without it being awkward or something.

Edit: Looking back over it, I found a nice spot. Tell me if it's okay.

I can't tell if that's supposed to be an innuendo or not. It sure sounds like one.
Other than that, Twilight seems like the character most likely to comment on it, so it fits rather nicely. You should just maybe overthink the choice of words unless you find it funny enough to leave it in. Razz

Climax isn't just for that, it's also a general term for any situation that reaches some kind of interesting, exciting, or dramatic peak, hence something that quickly gets rid of that peak in an unexciting manner being 'anticlimactic'.

Edit: Got a little more done. It's nothing particularly exciting, just sort of slice-of-life.

Dsarker or FD, feel free to inform me if the story needs to be moved, but I think I made it more than vague enough that it shouldn't need it.

Does editing actually bump the thread, anyway? Doesn't seem to.

Post  Sean Mirrsen on Sat Nov 26, 2011 9:42 am

The title of the second part suddenly reminded me of something. Let's see if you can remember an obscure song if it's been ponified:

Don't need four hooves, just to be a pony.
Don't need two arms, to be a man.
Don't need no fingers, to shape a friendship.
Don't be afraid, to understand.

Every universe in existence, any species, any race
You just need to have persistence, and a friendly face.
Every creature in existence, purple, orange, pink or blue,
There's one way to coexistence -
All you need is a friend or two.


Not particularly happy with rhyming "existence" to "coexistence", but... meh.

Oh, I'm aware of this and while it technically means the same thing "That was anticlimactic." carries a different connotation/is less likely to be misunderstood than "That sorta ruined the climax." Combined with it being "the climax of you being ready", I couldn't help but see an innuendo there.

Also, Sean, I have no idea. I've never read anything like that.

Edit: Reading the new part, I'd say it's definitely vague enough to stay here. Also, yes, rope ladder is where it's at.
The only thing about this part that seems a little off is the razor. How the hell would ponies use a straight razor? While it's shown that they can carry stuff using just their hooves (passive telekinesis or something), they generally use magic or their mouths for fine control. Unless, of course, all barbers are unicorns which I guess would make sense.
But of course, this is a My Little Pony fanfic, so tools which are clearly not designed for hooves appear all the freaking time, so really, it's probably rather close to how it would be portrayed in the show.

It's not read, it's seen. It was on TV, presumably in all or most english-speaking countries with cable or satellite TV. If you can't guess by tomorrow, I'll say which channel. If you can't guess then, well...

Also, that excerpt is just the chorus, but as far as I'm aware nothing but this chorus ended up in the broadcast. I found the rest of the song only as a download on the channel's site.

- Ee-yup.

Seriously, if you have cable or satellite, chances are you have this channel, and probably many of its derivatives. Even the crappy package we have here has it.

I know that, but your argument was that I should know that song since it was broadcasted in most English-speaking countries. It made no reference whatsoever to your location.

Seriously though, you probably have this channel. The song itself was part of an event either sponsored or endorsed by this channel.

I sincerely doubt that, but anyway: What is the channel, then? Because that chorus doesn't ring even the smallest of bells.
