The My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Fanfic

  • In a homage to AlChestBreach, chapter 6 contains this weird gem:
    Lightning Dust: "Where’d he go?"
    ???: "Oh, he’s gone. And now you walk into the belly of the beast."
    Jericho: "Um, who are you?"
    ???: "I am Marty, Marty Stew, the recon elite captain of this operation. I suspect you’ve heard of me before, that must be why you came, and I’ll tell you this: the stories they tell... are true."
    Jericho: "Ah, so you can juggle."
    Marty Stew: "Born under the sign of the eternal warrior I carve my way through these dark times, searching for something. Maybe an answer, or a cause, or just a real reason to fight. Who knows?"
    Jericho: "That’s nice, but..."
    Marty Stew: "Abandoned by my parents, I was raised by wolves. But not just any wolves, demon wolves. They taught me their ways, and so now I wander this world as a half-wolf, half-demon, half-dragonkin warrior."
    Jericho: "Look, I’m pretty sure your math just added up to one-point-five—"
    Marty Stew: "Don’t use your fancy mathematics to muddy up the issue here! I carved a path of destruction through this world, destroying all those who would harm the weak, and all those with non-liberal ideas."
    Jericho: "Hey! That’s my line. Er, except for the part about killing those with different opinions. And aren’t you currently picking on the weak—"
    Marty Stew: (Laughs) "I am a master of all forms of combat, and pretty much everything else I try with pretty much no explanation as to how. It has not been an easy life, no. I am transgendered—twice!—and am now forced to walk this land a stallion. Yet in spite of all this, all mares I come across fall in love with me... for seemingly no reason. Probably my dashing good looks."
    Jericho: "Okay, that’s stupid. And wouldn’t that mean you were a stallion in the first place?"
    Cards: (Pokes Jericho) "Shouldn’t you be, I dunno, murdering him or something?"
    Marty Stew: "I have been cursed with absolutely no character flaws, too! Except for a few token ones like, uh, bipolarism, insomnia, depression—only the cool ones. I am now forced to wander this world with absolutely no character development in sight.” Beat “Oh, and I can speak to trees.
    Jericho: "Are you making fun of me? You’re making fun of me, aren’t you!"
    Marty Stew: (Smiles) "I sense that you are wondering why I’m here."
    Jericho: "No!"
    Marty Stew: "Well, strangers, in truth I’ve been tracking you for a... I don’t know, ’bout twenty minutes now. Your day of reckoning has arrived. So come, face the perfection that is... Marty Stew!”
    Marty Stew sways his body, bending and unbending his knees and elbows as he breaks out into an off-key song.
    Marty Stew, Marty Stew,
    He’s a half-demon, half-wolf dragon king,
    Marty Stew, Marty Stew...
    Jericho: "N-no! You can’t sing—only I get to sing!"

  • Jericho, reacting to the existence of Cloudsdale.
    My brain imploded, got launched into another universe, fought daringly against alternate universe monsters, became that universe’s king by defeating an incomprehensible evil, then left, telling them he needed to go save another universe now, and so finally found my skull again.
  • Jericho, trying to divine future from waffles and maple syrup.
    I grabbed my container of maple syrup and, still holding onto him, poured it over my waffles. With dark intent and darker expression, I leaned my face down until I was almost breathing in the waffle. “Hmmm,” I hummed with all possible interest. I focused, concentrated, and looked deep into the maple syrup. It only worked with maple syrup for a reason, after all. And then I saw it: visions of fire, brimstone, the end of the world, all that I loved dying, and—yeah, nothing I didn’t know. I groaned, “Oh, no, not that again.” I looked around the waffle, trying to find a prediction other than the tired, has-been prediction that I always saw when I gazed into my waffles and sought answers.
    “What are you...?” Social Grace tried, and I shushed him hard.
    “I’m looking into my waffle and trying to tell the future,” I replied. Cards kicked me again, harder, but I refused to let go of the buck.
    “And, uh, what do they tell you?”
    I shrugged. “Oh, the usual crap: the end of the world is near, it’s going to be fiery and people will die both brutal and pointless deaths, a holocaust of frost and fire that will bring everlasting torment upon the wicked and benevolent alike—same old, same old, really. Nothing to be worried about.” I blinked. “Waffles are known for being very dramatic, you understand, and they have a terrible grasp of scale. They see fiery armageddon, genocide, and the forced deflowering of all that is holy and sacred where a normal pony would only see soup that is too hot.”

  • When dealing with Cherry Berry, whom he's tied up after she tried to rape him:
    Jericho: "I flat-out refuse to accept anyone has ever slept with you and afterwards concluded that ‘Yes, this was a satisfactory experience’. I mean, not even in terms of sex, I mean in terms of anything at all. You are a sick, twisted, narcissistic, sexist witch who thinks only of herself. I don’t care if you were the queen bitch of Equestria and the sun herself, what I’m telling you is the honest-to-God truth! By the Prophet and her holy virginity, you have less charisma and sexual aptitude than Cards! And it’d take more than just a sexy look and lifting your tail for me to even contemplate entertaining the notion that you were anything but!"
  • When fighting the Black Man:
    Jericho: "You're behind me, aren't you?"
    The Black Man: "Yep."
    Jericho: "Shit."

The TV Series

  • Many of the things Stanley says like busting open a tank of gasoline before Heather could say he could blow himself up ("Well that was dumb").
  • In "Federal Response", Jake gives his typical nonspecific answer to Hawkins when asked about his skills:
    Jake: I was a pool guy.
    (later, Hawkins gives an equally nonspecific answer to Jake's unspoken question about Hawkins happening to have a truck with its own 120VAC)
  • This exchange from "Long Live the Mayor".
    Mimi: You're supposed to keep stuff like that away from "The Triangle".
    Stanley: The what?
    Mimi: "The Triangle". The 3 areas most important in the kitchen: sink, stove, prep.
    Stanley: You know since I was young I felt there's something missing from my life. Now I have it. It's "Sink, stove, prep".
  • Another gem from Stanley when trying to come up with a Portmanteau Couple Name for him and Mimi:
    Stanley: "What do you think they'd call us? Steamily? Mimamly?... St-.. Steamy! note
