    Summary: MLP:FiM A thousand years is quite the generation gap, so Princess Luna decides she has to get with the times. However, this isn't quite as easy as she thinks it will be...

    Yet another My Little Pony fic from me, apparently I've a run of good luck in my fic searching. This one is Princess Luna-centric and is about her attempts to fit in after her thousand year absence, with hilarious consequences. Kind of a crackfic, but not so extreme as to be off-putting.

    5/5





    Edit by Minion, June 25, 2015:
    Nowadays there are two versions of the story: The original version on fanfiction.net and a rewritten shorter version on fimfiction (listed as complete). I added the second version above.

    It's a decent fic, though the first few chapters are a bit slow; it doesn't really start picking up until Luna gets to Ponyville. Pinky Pie makes everything funnier.

    My Little Pony sounded like a weird name for a fandom until I goggled it: is this what you're seriously talking about?

    Yes, yes it is. Give it a go, it's surprisingly enjoyable. Don't think of it along the same lines as other childrens' cartoons; it's built more along the lines of Spongebob Squarepants and Shrek in that its target demographic is younger children, but it's got plenty of jokes in there for older people as well (which makes sense since the creator is the same one that made the Powerpuff Girls). The artwork is very good and very consistent, and the characters themselves are unique, interesting and well rounded enough to make them seem like actual people (the whole talking magical pony thing aside), rather than one dimensional pictures. Finally, the plot is refreshing in its light hearted nature, but has plenty of conflict and many laugh out loud moments that make it a genuinely entertaining cartoon series.

    Fair point, though I did enjoy Luna's beginning attempts at adjusting to a more modern world. Luna versus the microwave was a good first chapter for setting up the rest of the fic.

    Nice to see you too, Space Cowboy. We've had weirder fics make their way onto this forum and this is a legitimately funny story, so I figured why not let the rest of you decide whether it's decent or not. Also, fuck you, Pinkie Pie is awesome. :awesome

    DLP has a six page thread about how MLP is awesome. That makes it fair game, as long as the fics are entertaining and of sufficient quality. Just ignore the creepy weirdos in the fandom; every show has them.

    I stand by my statement that Pinkie Pie is comedy gold.
