I've just been (slightly illicitly) reading The Stars Will Aid Their Escape, a crossover between My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and a certain other author. While the whole crossover was excellently written, this bit particularly amused me:


A strangely masked stallion was standing outside, looking up at the building and toying with a jam jar.

“Eeeeee! New pony! Hello,welcometoPonyville! I’msureyou’regoingtoreallylikeithere, I’mgoingtohavetostartplanningawelcomepartyforyourightaway!”

“And hello to you, Miss Pie. I’m surprised it took you so long to find me. You’re quite right, I’m sure I’ll find Ponyville very entertaining.”

“Oh, you know who I am, that’s all spooky and mysterious, like your mask. I like masks. And hats and fancy dress costumes and Nightmare Night. Oooh! And PARTIES! I LOVE parties! Do you like parties, Mr. Mysterious Pony?”

“Miss Pie, where I come from is a place of never-ending music and dancing. And laughter. I make sure there’s a lot of laughter.”

“Really? Nopony is better at making ponies laugh than me – it’s what a Pinkie is here to do! What kind of music? Polka? Pop? Piano? Post-industrial? We’re got lots of musician-ponies in Ponyville.”

“Flute, mostly. Perhaps you’d like to come and visit, sometime.”

“That would be super-dooper-awesome! But I can’t today, I have to go see some ponies about some stuff. Somepony has gone completely oatmeal and we all want to help her out and stop her calling up big scary monsters from out of the infinite black reaches of space and time. Big scary monsters are scary. Are you here to help with the big scary monsters? I bet you are, Mr. Mysterious Pony!”

"Your insight is phenomenal, Miss Pie. I am indeed here to help with the monsters."

I blame Friday afternoon for this one. And for the bad puns.


This team works for the PBI (Pony Bureau of Investigation).

Cherry Garcia: a Unicorn whose less-than-legal past is far distant, and who was certainly never involved in any sort of collaboration with the great and powerful Trixie. Now serves as main researcher for the team.

Hutchner: the Team Leader. An Earth Pony from a family of rabbit-breeders and lawyers, which may account for his expressive eyebrows and dry sense of humour.

Jay Jay: a Pegasus who serves as “overflyer” to the team, supervising communications and working with the local authorities.

Morgan: a Pegasus, previously in the Royal Guard. His glossy chocolate flanks are much admired by connoisseurs, and he is an expert at kicking down doors. Or anything else.

Prentice: an Earth Pony, new to the team but apparently an all-round expert agent. Rumours about some sort of past history with Interpony on an anti-Everfree taskforce are currently unsubstantiated.

Read: an even more studious than usual Unicorn, although his mane is less than stylish.

Russet: an Earth Pony. Reliable, stubborn, persistent, expert hostage negotiator. Believed to have relations near Ponyville who keep him supplied with cookery ingredients.

(PS: and yes, for reference, I have read a certain MLP fanfiction, or at least skimmed it, though I didn't imagine this team involved in it. And I have no idea how a fanfic with this team in it would work. I just couldn't resist the image once I had it.)
