    First. This story is rather interesting, cant wait for more. And yes, I can read that fast

    I like this. The focus was not on Pinkie Pie, the Element of Laughter, but Spike who was only being assisted by Pinkie.I hope the rest follow a similar theme where each Pony Element helps someone else find their own inner Friendship element.

  3. That was a very cute story and I really enjoyed it. :3

    Had a read of this, loved it. Made me laugh many times.Putting in the little notation to see it as an episode helped you a lot, as I did try to invision my own expressions and animations naturally while reading. (the music helped)

    Oh my God, like actually, oh my Trollestia and Luna.This is what every Normal Fanfic should be like.The way this is written makes it easily possible to convert it into a script. Hell, I actually thought Lauren Faust was pitching in at some points. Great job writing this. It definitely had the feel of a real FiM Episode, which I think all of us really need right about now, and the next day, and the next day…..Keep it up! I was very entertained by this. One thing I think it was missing though was Twilight's Letter to Celestia about friendship. THEN you should send this to the writers of the show.

    I very much enjoyed it and a nice touch with the music, it made the reading experience interesting and different.

  8. Thattagen says:

    "A steady diet of lucky charms."That part made me smile.I do like these stories. For me, the music adds a while lot to the experience, and makes this unique among fanfics. I found myself trying to "fade into" the next song as I read, to accentuate the mood.5 stars, cause it's just so fun to read.

  9. A miserable pile of joy!/castlevania reference deployed

    Oh, that second chapter was such a nice story. It made me feel warm all over. x3 Thanks for writing it.

  11. ultra8 says:

    Sometimes it's wise to bet on crazy or like Sherlock holmes says "when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?"Really nice choices of the music though the rain one should have been a bit more stormy feeling.

    #1 A nice bit I could see as an episode.#2 OK this is interesting and the solution is…bah? But the, bu, tibat, ta, gah, wha? Did NOT see that coming.

  14. These are really cute stories. Definately, worth the read.

    These stories were very good, and very reminicent of the show. The music was a unique touch. Keep up the good work.

    Umm… I can't enter the third chapter, it says something about needing permission.

  18. Cascore says:

    Really? I know I accidentally sent the link for the story before making it open for public viewing in the options, but I changed it so anyone with the link should be able to view it. I've changed it again so anyone on the web can see it now. If that doesn't fix the problem, then I dunno what's going on. I even checked to see if the link was any different after changing it to public viewing, and it's exactly the same, so…

    @CascoreYeah, I'm the anon who mentioned the problem here, it now works. Another amazing chapter delivered. Great work!

    Third chapter was entertaining. I am not sure how Rarity can take over from Rainbow entirely.Her weather patrol duties would be impossible to fulfil, I don't think that ever gets addressed. However, who cares, I enjoyed the read. Looking forward to the next chapter. Story. Whatever ^^

    Friendship is…Life Changing! That one sounds like it could actually pass for a real episode! In fact, I could almost imagine a big gaudy crowd song musical number as the pony gang gets to the circus, all about the circus, called "At The Circus"! And "Pinkie Panther"…where's Henry Mancini when ya need him?

    The amount of visuals one can garner from the circus descriptions is great. Also a more realised return of Trixie that feels more natural rather than the "forced" sadness you often see. Great job! I am seriously loving this "series", almost like a Season 1.5.

    I really like how you link the music to the stories. Makes them all the more real.

    The latest update ("Life Changing") is I think my favorite so far. I really liked your interpretation of Trixie here, and think that this would make for a very satisfying return for her if this were an episode in season 2. Well done!

    Absolutely brilliant, all of them! I loved Life-changing the most. You could have easily called it Forgiveness. It had a wonderful balance of comedy and character development. Keep it up.

    To the Anon who mentioned the musical number: I was actually on the verge of trying that (with just Pinkie singing, though, as she invited all of the friends and they arrived), but ended up scrapping the idea. As much as I would like to make lyrics, I just can't think of a feasible way to incorporate them into the story while still getting in description and flowing with the music. It'd just be a mess. x.x I'm glad you pictured a number there, though, because if I could've, I would've.To everyone else: Thank you so much for the awesome comments! It really brings a smile to this brony's face, and I hope I can keep entertaining you as I jot down more ideas!

  54. This most recent chapter gives the best send off to Trixie. The story just gets better the longer it goes. 🙂

    The latest chapter is fantastic! It feels just like an episode should – is Cascore secretly a writer for the show? We can but hope. The use of music cues is something I haven't seen before, but they are perfectly judged.

    Goodness! A Trixie character interpretation that makes me not hate her. Marvelous!Professor Spike and Pinkie Panther NEEDS to be canon.Perfectly visualised Trixie's little *head poke* out of the bush at the end. I d'awwd a little, though I was kind of hoping for a proper reconciliation with AJ, Dash and Rarity at the end.Truly excellent work, well done.

    The longer these things get, they closer they get to being suitable for an animated theatrical release rather than an episode.This is not a complaint. Absolutely make more of these. I've read a lot of great stories, but these really do feel just like season 2 already started. If only! Oh frabjous day, calloo callay!

  67. Unknown says:

    All of these were wonderful but the one that really got me was Life Changing. I really did enjoy the comedy with Pinkie and Spike, mustache, Pinkie Panther, hiding, Scooby Doo door chase (Though I thought it could have gone on a bit longer and been a bit more zany), it was great. I like how it wasn't obvious where the story was going from the outset until Trixie showed up. I loved the part where Twilight volunteered for the magic act, it was very well done and when Trixie revealed her feelings to Twilight brought tears to my eyes (Though allot of these Pony stories do, I'll admit), and as someone else said, the part at the end was so much like an episode that I could visualize it in my head. Something to note, after going through the episode of Boast Busters again I noticed that it was the main cast to throw the first punch so to speak, when she first opens up she was doing what I'd expect a magician to do, sure they were right about her being a braggart but it ties in with how in your story they jumped to conclusions. I kind of wish Snips and Snails would get more flak though, it was them who attempted to even get an Ursa Major into the town to begin with, I like the two but it wasn't Trixie that caused that fiasco.I look forward to your next story.
