Our previous thread:
Human Superiority's Pastebin and Manos green part I and II:
Backgrounds of Fate (Manos Side Stories)
MedicalKrabbyPatty's (aka: A Black Hand) Pastebin:
In this thread we wait for Human Superiority's return and the continuation of his green.
Defiling this sacred new thread with his first post...
I expected nothing less from you Mr. Unprofessional.
Alright lads, we're back at Happening-Con 5. I'm workin on shit but I probably won't post til tomorrow night.
Encourage her to do what?
Thank you again Ms Harshwhinny!
Indeed he's the epitome of unprofessionalism.
Can't wait Mr Black Hand Sir! Love your bg stories!
Are you searching for story material/suggestions? How about a group of little foals from the Manos Youth and their Brownshirt leader from one of the farther away cities with little followers, make a pilgrimage to Ponyville City the capital of the movement to present their flag and to see with their own eyes the wonders of an enlightened new age city under Manos. Are they going to be delighted or disappointed... Picture related. Or this one: Since Manos' influence hasn't spread all over Equestria yet, the Brownshirts in town X are a small minority and have to "fight" against ridicule and animosity from their fellow pones. Will they give up or not, are they going to receive support even if its just moral one... who knows! Hope you like them and they're somewhat useful to you when you're out of ideas.
Thanks Miss Harshwhinny!
You're the finest mature mare out there!

>the hands definitely made sure to give as good as they got

>you look back once more as you exit the room

"Valhalla awaits you.."

im going to stop here for tonight, have a bit of planning to do for a upcoming trip. i hope you enjoyed reading, i enjoy writing for you guys
as always constructive criticism is welcome!
Enjoy my other shit! (or dont idc)
pastebin will be updated soon
Feel free to discuss the story, ill be around for a while to answer questions
and Remember: You're human. Be proud, be Superior!
>Was writing next green in a reply box.
>Didn't think to copy paste in notepad or gdocs or some other shit.
>Go to work.
>Come back to find out computer had 'important updates' while I was gone.
Fuck. I'm starting over I guess.
Suggestions are absolutely wonderful. I like the both of those and I'll see what I can do with them.
Its getting intense, sir. Thanks for the update.
>Heil the Reich
If we are keeping the whole deutch thing going then it should be:
Heil das Reich
But i like the way Heil Reich sounds. You can change it if.. y-you want to that is.
If you want to hear my opinion as a native speaker, stick with "Heil the Reich", "Heil the new Reich" or even better "Heil (to) our (new) Reich"
I'm sorry >>25225643 , but "Heil das Reich" is something a foreigner would say, that doesn't care about German relative pronouns.
Back then we sometimes used phrases like "Heil dem Reich" which would be literally translated "Heil the Reich" (Hail the Empire), "Heil unsrem Reich" (Hail to our Empire) or to use a song verse "Heil unsrem Führer, heil dem Vaterland!" (Hail to our leader, hail to the fatherland)
The the plain honest German most commonly used "Heil Hitler" and/or "Sieg Heil", the "Reich" was emphasised mostly during speeches and such or if you wanted to salute it specifically.
My favourite is still the plain old "Heil Manos!" with its "We are his faithful hands!" part, which makes the most sense in my book.
Would you believe I lost everything again? Manos would be disappointed.
As sad as it is, that was to be expected. Every night fresh glorious green was too good to be true... I really hope he doesn't get bored or stressed out by this endeavour and deserts us entirely. Having said that: All human wisdom is contained in these two words - wait and hope! Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
Sorry guys I know I'm slipping, but since my classes just ended my work had been giving me more to do. But like I said before I really enjoy writing for you and I don't plan on stopping yet.
Don't worry about it, sir. Take care of what you need and we'll be fine here. We are all faithful hands.
Human Superiority. I just wanted to say that while you aren't the best writer I have seen and you make small grammar mistakes, you do shit out an impressive amount of green in a relative short time. Quantity truly has a quality of its own
That is all and keep up the good work
Business major and a psychology minor.
I'm also taking computer hardware and security classes on the side. Luckily those last two are online and are year round so I can take those in my free time for cheap.
Human Superiority, I have a query: what about Starlight Glimmer? I seriously doubt she would work well with Manos. She may have to be eliminated... But the Staff of Samness should be used. Perhaps as a means of re-education. After we would have broken our prisoners 1984 style.
Or during the re-education process. Use the Staff of Samness on them, and while they're grey, dull, and vulnerable we continue the process. Take them in and out of having a cutie mark and not having one. The repetition along with the beating and the induced pain would help tremendously.
I think Starlight's little village is isolated enough for her not to become a problem. However the staff of sameness doesn't actually do anything as its Starlight's own spell the does the whole 'cutie unmarking' thing.
Manos could send some ponies to Starlight and perhaps she could disappear in the middle of the night. We could use a spell like that but all we need to do is learn it. Further more if we captured this little town it'd be the perfect remote re-education facility or even a place to keep some troops in case of a rainy day. The fact that shit like that went down there unchecked before Twilight went there is proof enough ol' sunbutt doesn't really monitor some parts of Equestria.
Manos could stage and an army right under her little horsie nose.
So we are agreed then, Black Hand? Keep the knowledge of that place on a need-to-know basis. Assassinate the town-leader, or... "Liberate" it from the dictator and enforce Manos' Lordship over it; then re-create it into a factory/barracks/re-education site. Would be a good place to use. Perfectly tucked away.
Also, lol I just realized something. You're like a black hand reporting field information to an officer. amazing faggotry abounds in our threads, wouldn't you agree?
Another thing that should be noted is that if towns like Starlight's exist, there could be other little isolationist villages out there in Equestria where Celestia's sun don't care to shine. In most cases these are the perfect little ponies and places to sweep up into Manos' hands. HE could have more of a presence in Equestira.
Another thing I've been curious about is how large of a role espionage is gonna play in the Equestria-Reich conflict. Manos has his security down pat to where only his most loyal have access to the sensitive stuff like R&D where as Manos has followers in seemingly every level of Equestrian government if Silver Valor is anything to go by.
Do you think its possible for Manos to be infiltrated with the way things are? How much information do you think Manos could draw out if he really wanted it?
I figured discussing shit would be better than bumping for days.
Kek. I guess so. I figure if we keep our faggotry professionaland on topic it shouldn't matter too much.
I always think about that. It's best that security measures in Manos' Reich be upgraded. With Celestia becoming more and more aggressive in her negative stance towards Manos it's not unreasonable to suspect that she will sic her sister's Nightwatch spies on him, and her Daywatch double agents. Thusly, I'd think it appropriate to send our own double agent, and keep on a constant sweep for spies from the Equestrian Loyalists. With any luck it would be a simple manner of developing a coded language, and it would be easy to use her own spies against her. Hell, the entirety of the old castle is a booby-trap haven. It's not such a stretch to fill it with false reports and plans.
So to sum up: yes.
as far as i know it is thus;
feel free to correct me
1 Humvee - though possibly broken down and in process of reverse engineering
3-4 small arms in R&D and Manos' own sidearm 2 of which are shotguns
basic time period weaponry (swords shields etc)
unarmed yet slightly armored crank powered tanks (looking like those from WWI)
a slightly modified version in production possibly looking like Panzer I or similar light tanks thought still unarmed
possibly in the future: sidearms adapted to ponies, and a rough idea on how to make a mg34, though no actual testing as of yet.
I imagine the MG34 crew would consist of an earth-pony and 2 unicorns.
>Earth Pone carries extra mags / belts of ammo, barrels, and the MG34 its-self (Earth-pone strength)
>Uni 1/2 carries 1 or 2 belts / mags of ammo and other mandatory gear but does the firing of the gun after it's been deployed
>Uni 2/2 reloads the gun, fixes jams, and / or replaces barrels when need be for the MG34 but also has the same gear as the 1st unicorn troop
Oh and this might be useful to you HS.
what's for dinner
>you are Rainbow Dash
>your unit has arrived at the outskirts of the castle
>bodies are laying around both pony and griffons
>you slowly advance through the battlefield making sure to check each body for survivors
"alright, lets move inside. you three keep guard outside make sure nothing comes in behind us"
"alright the rest of you follow me inside we still have our mission"
>you and your unit move in the castle each member keeping their eyes peeled for an ambush
>"commander, do you think anypony is still alive in here?"
>you dont acknowledge the question
>suddenly in the corner of the room there is a sudden noise of a weapon dropping
>you quickly look to the direction of the noise
"spread out and converge at that position"
>some of your pagasi lift into the sky in the large room trying to get a better view
>as you get closer to the noise you start to see a silhouette of a pony

"i repeat! identify yourself!"
>the pony crawls out of his hiding spot
>>"keep your voice down!"

>the black hand quickly gets to his hooves and runs down the hall
"wait! get back here!"
>you take off in pursuit eventually taking flight to gain more speed
>you can hear your unit following behind you
>you tackle the pony to the ground

>"excuse me lord"
>you take a step to the side as a pony in a lab coat pushes a cart down the hall
"hold up a second."
>you approach the cart
>on it are a series of different crystals and metals
>you pick up one of the vibrant red crystals
>"ah! be careful with that one lord its very unstable."
"what does it do?"
>"well, as for what it DOES, it explodes violently when enough force is applied. but as for what we are doing with it there are several things"
>the scientists smiles at you with a look that says 'please ask'
>"IM GLAD YOU ASKED!"
>he grabs the crystal with his magic and gently sets it back into its container
>"well since we started to study your 'engine' we found that it needs a fuel source, a combustible fuel source"
>he shows you all of the crystals he has on the cart
>"and each one of these are combustible. of course your design required a fluid well we have been modifying and creating one of our own!"
"one that doesnt require a liquid?"
>"nope! of course its in a very early development"
"are you on your way to test it?"
>"no, not until later in the evening. right now im off to find out which of these are most compatible with out design"
>you step aside to let him carry on in his work
"have honor bound keep me informed on this. id like to see how it progresses."
>"of course lord."
>you are Rainbow Dash
>and you are unconscious
>or, you were.. you are waking up
>you are in a unlit room and it takes your eyes a while to adjust

"where are we?.. what happened?..."

>you feel yourself being lifted
>"i heard you the first time you damned bird! we are not leaving our commander"
>>"fine bet get inside the room quickly! i dont know how much time we have!"
>before you register whats going on a large griffon and two black hands are carrying you into a smaller and more lit room

>your eyes are having issue making out whats inside but from the looks of it there are a number of both ponies and griffons inside
>most of the occupants are civilians that gathered here once the attack started
>at least thats what you assume
"whats going on.. why are there griffons in here?"
>you slowly get to your hooves
>a black hand from your unit supports you
>"dont push yourself commander. we can explain everything."
>>"if we dont all die first, thanks to you insolent hands they know there are more of us alive in here!"
>"shut up you fucking chimera bastard, this whole situation is your kinds fault!"
>>"OUR KIND!? what the hell did we do?"
"enough! someone, explain this to me, NOW. as commanding officer and highest ranking black hand i am now in charge! tell me what has happened here.."
>the arguing stops and everyone in the room looks to you.
>"commander.. remember when manos has us move everything out to the crystal kingdom?"
>"well they cut a few corners it turns out, and not.. everything was taken or destroyed.."
God dammit. This isn't good.
No problem fam.
"what do you mean?"
>"well either they didnt know, or didnt care, but apparently they left a"
>the griffon takes a few steps forward and jabs a talon at you

>the mare then looks to you with a much softer face than the griffon
>"they might have just not known that he had another secret experiment set up here, it was in a top security area"
>she then looks back to the bird
>"which would have been sealed away and contained if YOU birds didnt decide to try and loot the fucking place when you attacked!'
>>"how were we supposed to know that you bat shit insane ponies would be storing a whole nest of changelings?!"
>you look to the griffon
"who is your commander here?"
>he remains silent and looks to the other remaining griffons
>there is only a handful of them in the room
>>"i guess that would be me. all our officers were killed."
>you look him dead in the eyes
"if thats the case I am the highest ranking officer here. I will be in command here."
>>"yeah ok, let you take command? you will just turn on us the moment you see fit, or waste us right now."
>the other ponies in the room, especially the civilians look nervous.

>you grab the binoculars from him and take a look for yourself
>sure enough on the front of one of the ponies coats is a mark of the gestapo
"what are they doing taking them away like that?"
>"i thought we were on the same side, damned royals, no wonder equestria is so low on the food chain."
"too busy tearing ourselves apart"
>you observe their movement for a bit longer
>one of the royal guards walk up to a gestapo member and they talk
>you try to get a better view.
>you nearly drop your binoculars when you notice the gestapo the guard is talking to isnt in restraints
>in fact he seems to be getting along well with the guard and continues to point to the others in restraints
>you see one of the gestapo on chains spit at him and the guard
>its not long before he is 'punished' for his action
>you set down the binoculars and record everything you have just seen.
>in as much detail as you can
"take those and describe EVERYTHING you can to me"
>the stallion looks over the scene
>"arnt we going to help them?"
"just describe whats going on soldier.."
>there is a uneasy silence between the two of you
>your orders were to do recon, and not to engage.
>orders are orders.
>you whisper to yourself so the other pony cant hear you
"im sorry brothers.."
sorry to hear that. i wanted to do this one back when copper was still around, but i was unable to find a nice way to add it in.
but i wanted to write this part, so imma write it.
instead of bumping to eternity let's think of things to do
>besides the sounds of the pony next to you describing the scene the rest of the world seems quiet
>you are completely focused on your mission
>is this what being a solder is really like...
>not a few hours ago you were nervous and afraid, worried you were not fit for commanding a unit
>now you dont care about your previous thoughts and your mind is centered
>you look up from your notes and you see the group of captives and guards leaving
>the stallion next to you sets down his binoculars
>"we should have done something.."
>you close the journal and place it in your bag
>he looks over to you
>"why didnt we? if we all went in we could have rescued them."
>you settle into your spot again trying to make it more comfortable
>you hear a sigh from the stallion as he gives up on his questioning
>sometimes you dont get answers to the questions you want
>and sometimes you shouldnt be asking the questions
>this is one of those two times, youre just not sure which one it is.
>you are Rainbow Dash
>after a quick headcount you see you are down three pegasi from your unit
>but you have now a slightly larger force from taking command of the Black Hands here
"ah, my side hurts"
>you place a hoof over your now bandaged sides
>to your dismay that only makes it hurt more and you quickly pull it back
"alright.. where exactly is this nest located?"
>the griffon from before whose name you have learned is Odysseus points at the door
>"its right at the end of the hall."
"that seems a little close dont you think?"
>"saying it out loud definitely makes it sound that way, but it really isnt"
>he walks over to a wooden table and scratches a very crude map of the R&D wing
>you can only barely tell its even a map
>"this large doorway here is the only way in or out of that area, the nest is somewhere inside"
>a black hand in a R&D uniform keeps looking over to you from behind the griffon
>he never speaks up and instead lets the bird explain the way there
>but you can tell he has his own idea
>"it would either be in here, the main storage area that we initially opened. when we.. liberated this place."
>he scratches an X on the room
>"or it would be in the larger room attached to it just on the opposite side"
"alright, give me a few minutes i need to get this wound checked on."
>"alright, but make it quick the sooner we do this the sooner we can leave"
>you walk away from the griffon and walk to one of your medics
>you notice the R&D unicorn from before walks behind you and takes a spot next to you as you get your wound checked
>>"commander Rainbow Dash."
>you wince at the discomfort from the medic removing the old bandages and tightly applying new ones
>>"you dont really plan on destroying this nest do you?"
"of course i do, why wouldnt i?"
>the unicorn looks to the medic and wait for him to finish his work
>>"this nest, while crude and violent, could be a great boon to our research on the changelings"
"why would you want to study these ones? what makes them so special"
>>"absolutely nothing, besides the fact they somehow have made a nest without a queen present."
>that is rather odd..
>>"we always thought a queen was necessary for a nest or hive, otherwise they would just be to chaotic to get much done"
>the scientist looks over to the griffons
>>"but it seems they arent, and id like to find out why."
"what would you do then? if you were in charge."
>the unicorn chuckles
>>"id simply seal the door and come back with a science team for later study"
"and you dont think sealing the door would be simple?"
>>"its closing a door commander. the only thing you would need is a distraction to keep them occupied while the door closes"
>he nods to the griffons
>>"it would be a shame if they got bad orders and the door was sealed behind them, wouldnt you agree?"
>you are Manos
>you continue your walk down the R&D laboratories
>as you pass each room you take a glance inside
>both to look for Honor Bound and to see what new studies are being done
>most of the rooms are just ponies looking over files and papers scribbling scientific data
>but there are a few that catch your eye
>one room had a few ponies replicating ammunition for the weapons you currently have
>a few other rooms had ponies trying to build a copy of the vehicle you brought back
>they are getting pretty close, but they dont have a working engine yet so its just a pile of metal on wheels
>finally you find Honor Bound
>he and cadence are looking over the designs you recently made
>both the new weapon and the plans to adapt the older ones to ponies
"how is everything shaping up Honor Bound?"
>the two ponies turn to you
>Honor Bound bows his head
>"everything is going smoothly, however i have a few questions about you new designs"
"go ahead and ask"
>you walk inside and take a look at the collected designs both yours and other scientists
>"this new weapon.. the ammunition used in it seems like it would be different from that we currently have replicated."
"yes, it uses a different ammunition, it would be very similar to the smaller ones you have studied but a few changes. it shouldnt be too hard for your scientists to figure out"
>"i will have a team start research and development immediately. the sooner we have this new weapon the better."
>you look over to Cadence
"and while i have you here Cadence, ive been meaning to ask you something, what have you been doing with my little pet queen?"
>Cadence smiles a little proud of herself
>>"as of a few days ago she has been assisting me with keeping changelings in our camps orderly, its rather amazing how those little parasites can suddenly become perfect laborers"
>you dont look nearly as excited as she seems to be
"you really think thats a good idea?"
>Cadence smiles and walks to your side
>"dont worry about it Manos, i have her under control. if anything starts to go wrong ill put a stop to it."
"if anything goes wrong Cadence, it will go very wrong. keep her on a tight leash, but make sure she thinks we are in the right."
>you turn your attention back to Honor
"i heard you have a test coming up for a new engine?"
>>"yes Lord, we have a few trials to run and we need to decide on an effective power source but if everything goes well then we should be able to produce them quite easily"
"just be sure they can me manufactured soon, the longer this takes the harder it will be for us to make effective use of them."
>you stand up and look to your designs
"everything needs to be ready soon. war is already here, and we cannot afford to lose anything"
hey guys, i dont know how much ill be able to post over the next few days. im going on a trip tonight and ill be back in a few days, if i get free time ill post. but i wouldnt expect much. sorry guys. ill see you in a few days
Cool. I look forward to it, Anon.
I well... kinda shot myself in the hand with an airshit gun. Whoops amirite? There's supposedly a BB next to a bone so one hand is stuck in a splint til I follow up with a fuckin surgeon. I could post what I've got so far but I won't finish it until this annoying ass thing is off my hand.
>Buck it you dont even remember your name
>You are just a useless changeling that was captured and taken to the crystal kingdom's camps , alongside with many others like you
>Your life since that day has been nothing but working
>Working for causes that you dont even know
>If you did something that wasnt working you were punished
>If that happened, you were punched by two bigger changelings than you
>That until you wanted to die, but then they..
>But you had hope, everyday
>Hope that one day, the new queen came to help you, and all your brothers and sisters
>Help you getting out of this sick place
>That until one day
>There was... something
>Something that gave you more hope than ever for living one more day
>You could sence your queen around
>You didnt knew where she was, but you were sure
>There were many others that could sence her too, so
>It was her for sure
>"Hey, can you feel that too?"
>Said another changeling at your side
"Yes, its her!
"its finally her!"
>"But, she doesnt feels worried, shes not even responding us, she just.. keeps ignoring us"
"Buck it, its her! we're saved!"
>>"GET BACK TO WORKING YOU LITTLE SHITS!"
>One of the two already mentioned changelings shouted from the distance
>But you, still amazed by the presence of the queen ignored that
>Then you felt a punch in your jaw
>And the next thing you knew was that you were on the ground
>Beeing hitted by those 2
>But you didnt care
>She was finally here
Just something i thought about, tell me if its at least something that deserves one more post, or if i should burn my pc and throw it to a river alongside with my self
Fuck Halloween today is Reformation Day!
>After something that, more than just minutes, seconds or hours, seemd like an eternity you head back to the rest rooms
>You can barely walk after all that punishment
>But you keep your hopes high, as the queen is now here
>You finally arrive and you see a lot of other changelings just sitting there, quiet
>But you know they are praying to the queen too
>Some are scared and so are their prayers
>Other, literally scream for beeing rescued from here
>After seeing this, you head to your "bed"
>Nothig but a pile of paper
>Your jaw, hurts
>Your hole body hurts
>But she will come to help you
>She has to do it
>You, with a lot of pain with every movement lay on your bed
>And while praying calmly to your queen
>You fall asleep
>The next day
>"TIME FOR WAKING UP WORTHLESS BUGS!"
>One of the bigger changelings shouted at us
>You always hated when they did that
>>"Hey, there he is"
>The other bigger changeling told to the one that shouted you
>They both got closer to you
>"Whats the matter little shit? your little body hurts?"
>You just stayed quiet praying for the queen to come and save you
>"DIDNT YOU HEARD ME YOU SHIT?!"
>The other changeling chuckled
>>"I think he is praying to the queen"
>"Ah, so you think your queen will come and help you?"
>"GET THE FUCK UP! SHE WILL NOT COME!"
>"And if she does, what makes you think she would care about such worthless pieces of shit like you?"
>The queen hasnt responded to any of your prayers, nor any of the other changelings prayers...
>Did she abandon you?
>No she cant!
>Maybe she got captured by other ponies!
>As your mind goes to dark places your heart starts to race
>And an anger to the ponies starts to rise
>You feel nothing now, nothing but anger and worry for what may have happened to your queen
>"DO YOU WANT MORE PUNISHMENT YOU SHIT?!"
"Shut the FUCK UP!"
>With the help of all the anger inside of you
>You got up shouting this to the bigger changeling
>Just for then turning backwards and kicking him with all the strenght you had
>Nothing that fucker out
>You turned to them, all the other worker changelings looking shoked by what happened
>And you dont realize what you just did until then
>One of those two bigger changelings unconcious on the ground and the other one looking at you
>You knew what was going to happend
>So you try to run
>But the pain from yesterday
>It makes so hard the only action of walking that it takes noting for the oter changeling to get you
>Punching you directly to you jaw
>Again in the fucking jaw
>Making you fall
>Once in the ground the changeling gets to your side
>"You are fucking DEAD"
420 fps vs flesh at point blank. Thats how. Shit don't fuck around.
Post more fag. Is noice.
So y'all want what I got today? I have at least six posts worth.
Hi guys. It's me, the victim of the Harshwhinny Coup. I'm really sick right now. Can I get some 'get well soon' comments?
Thank you, HS. I currently have trouble walking about my own home, as I can't seem to be able to maintain my balance when standing.
1. Can't stand up without falling over.
2. Vomiting until there's nothing left to vomit.
3. Fever of 103-104
4. Phlegm-filled throat. Constant coughing.
5. Watery shits.
6. Eyes take longer to focus on something.
What do I have, guys?
>The changeling started to kick and punch you how ever he could
>You with nothing more to do just lay there
>Feeling the pain
>Every kick that he gave you
>Was a whole torture
>You really wished to die there
>Then he stopped
>He knew that, killing you would be better for you
>He wanted to see you suffer
>"Next time think about what you fucking do, little shit"
>And just like that, he left you in the ground
>While you were there you thought...
>She never came to help you
>Your queen, your savior never came nor responded to any of your prayers
>At this point, with all the suffering that you've had, plus what those changelings said
>You start to doubt
>Was this your fate..?
>You remember him...
>That centaur-like thing
>The one that now calls himself "Manos"
>The same that killed your queen
>What if he killed or captured your new queen, or made her his slave so she wont help us
>It has to be that
>It better be that...
>With all the pain, you try to stand up
>Time for keeping up the daily routine
>Time for more working
>please help us, queen
>A few days latter
>Its been days since the queen arrived
>You've been doing nothing but praying to her with no response at all
>That fucking "manos" better let her go or else...
>And then, something interrupted your thoughts while working
>Something that you wished to happend
>But not exactly like this...
>The queen finally responded, but she said someting that didnt made you happy
>Instead, someting that made you more scared than you were already
>"Stop im not your queen, im not going to help you!"
>That froze your blood instantly
>There were others that got the same reaction by obvious reasons
>One of the changelings working even passed out
>You just stood there
>dont know what to do
>What to think
>She abandon you?
>Or was she beeing controled by some sort of magic or something?
>You dont know what to think anymore
>You want to stay loyal to the queen but this..
>It changes your perspective in every way
>You cant think about an excuse for that anymore
>Without knowing it, you feel tears coming from your eyes
>You lay down unable to do something
>With this then it means...
>Everything is lost
>Your fate is nothing but diying here if she wont help you
>You just lay down there for a moment
>After some seconds, you stand up and keep working
You might be the epitome of unprofessionalism, but I never wished for your death.
Get well soon Mr. Unprofessional.
Thank you, Ms. Harshwhinny. I wanted to let you know that I am sorry for every insult that I threw at you.
However, I think I know who's responsible for my ailments. Pic related.
JK; but seriously, thank you Ms. Harshwhinny.
It's me, bedridden.
>mfw I'll probably miss school tomorrow.
That is a big understatement mate.
Last week our local political overlords made it public that 100 shitskin invaders are going to come to our little town within the next 3 moths. Me, my friends and the majority of our town are quite angry to say the least. I hope the public anger boils over soon! Merkel and her entourage need to hang for this disaster, the destruction of the white occident is truly on the horizon!
Don't let your dreams be dreams.
you look like that fucking brownie celeb in that picture
Alright guys. The hands of Manos have decided my fate. Lord Manos has decided to keep me from school tomorrow through this illness that he has bestowed upon me. I believe it to be a sign, my fellow followers, for I have never missed school.
next time get early enough vaccinated you dumb fuck
i get myself vaccinated since 2003 and from then on never had more than a runny nose in the winter
Fuck it. I'll just post green to bump while our lord is away.
>You keep pressure on the worst of the wounds with your hooves staining your coat with blood.
>But little things like stains were hardly a problem on the battlefield.
>There were more wounds on Swift Wing than you had hooves though.
>It was just crazy really.
>One moment you were helping resolve a dispute between two merchants in the markets and then suddenly one of them was cut down in front of you.
>Then the screams...
>There were so many...
>If you hadn't have run you would have been killed too.
>You've been holed up in this building since save for retrieving your friend.
>It all happened so fast.
>Swift wing looked up at you through all of his shaking.
>He smiled despite everything, his face pale.
>"I-I'm gonna b-b-be ok, r-right?"
>You didn't even need to look him over.
>You knew the answer and so did he.
>There was no way in hell you could stop the bleeding.
>You smiled reassuringly and lied through your little pony teeth.
"Yeah, Swifty. You'll be just fine. Its just a flesh wound."
>Maybe if you lied and he believed it... then maybe you'd believe it too.
>His smile went away with the light in his eyes before he echoed you quietly.
>"Oh. It's not so bad then. Just a flesh woun..."
>He stopped shaking but you kept the pressure up.
>The only sounds in the room now was your ragged breathing.
>He was just unconscious.
>Yeah, that was it.
>He had to be.
>The door on the opposite end of the room suddenly burst open revealing a griffon in armor.
>Your eyes were wide and you were frozen in place.
>The griffon walks forward and falls over revealing dagger in the back of his neck.
>A mare in a black uniform moves in quickly and shuts the door before pulling the weapon out of the dead griffon.
>"You probably don't want to hear this but I was probably follo- Oh my gosh, Flitter? Thank fate you're alive!"
HS, when all this war shit is over, Manos should put more focus on creating new technology for entertainment, like the TV and pic related.
Alright. I actually have one of these. Let me tell you, it has not inspired any degeracy within my mind.
why do you want to fuck this story up so badly?
pones don't need no shitty electric jew consoles and video games
oh and i won't accept that button mash crap or any other heretical S2 and up shit as a counterargument
>Your sister rushes to you and tries to hug you but you stop her.
"If I move my hooves he'll die. Is there anypony else besides you? A medic maybe?"
>"No, everypony else is either dead or captured. We'll end up like them if we don't get a move on. Now lets go."
>Your sister took one of your legs away from Swift's wounds.
>You looked towards Cloud Chaser like she was crazy and jerked your leg away.
"I can't leave him here, Cloud!"
>Your sisters expression softened and she took one of your forelegs in her hooves again.
>"Flitter, look at me."
>You did no such thing.
>"Look at me!"
>You chest got heavy but you did not.
>You couldn't leave him.
>"Dammit, Flitter! Look at me!"
>Cloud put her hooves on your cheeks and forced you to look to her purple eyes.
>"He's dead! It sucks. I understand. My entire squad was just wiped out and now its just me."
>You shook your head and bit back tears.
>He can't b-
>Your vision flashed white when you were slapped across the face.
>"Flitter, listen! He's gone and we need to go! There are enough dead ponies! I don't know what your deal is with him but I'll be damned if I'm gonna lose you too! You okay now? Can we go?"
>You put a hoof to your cheek and nodded.
>Cloud Chaser started moving towards the back o the house.
>"Now lets go through the back. We should avoid flying because its a death trap with the griffons in the clouds."
>You heard her but instead of moving with her you went over to where Swift Wing lied and stared for a moment longer before planting a kiss on his forehead.
>It was then that you noticed a blood stain on your brown shirt and you unconsciously noted that you'd be chewed out by Harshwhinny for a stain like that.
>You brushed off as much grime as you could before turning around and walking past your sister whose expression was that of sympathy.
>"I'm sorry. I didn't know he meant something to you."
>You didn't say anything in response.
>Of course she didn't know.
>How could she have known when she was so busy with the Black Hands?
>If she would have waited it would have been the both of you in the hand instead of just her.
>You were supposed to join together...
>You opened the back door and motioned for her to go first.
>She wrapped you in a hug.
>"We'll make it through this. I promise."
>It surprised you how little you cared about making it through at this point.
>The sentiment didn't help Swift.
>Cloud Chaser let you go and stuck her head out the door.
>"Alright, the coast is clear for now. I'm pretty sure they haven't taken the castle yet but then again pretty much all of Ponyville went down in an hour so its still not that much of a stretch to say they have it too. I figure we should sneak our way into the forest and get out of town through the trees."
>She comes back inside.
>You decided to speak up.
"Are you suggesting that we abandon Ponyville?" you ask quietly.
>"Flitter lets face it: we're just two ponies. There may quiet literally be thousands of griffons in the city right now. Our best bet is to leave and wait for reinforcements."
>She had a point.
>"I don't like the idea any more than you do but we need to put some distance between ourselves and the city right now."
>You nod after a bit and sigh.
"Let's go then."
>You didn't really know how you were going to make it through the city and into the forest but it would be better than sitting here doing nothing.
>If you made it through you resolved to come back here when this was all over.
>Swift didn't deserve to just lie in a puddle in the middle of some strangers house.
>"Hey not so fast. Before we go you probably need a weapon."
>You made a move to where you had set you baton down but were stopped by a hoof.
>"No no. That thing won't do you any good right now."
>Cloud opened a door which led to a kitchen.
>You quickly went and grabbed the baton anyways, putting it in its place on your belt before following your sister in.
>The kitchen was small and simple.
>On the counter lied various ingredients for spaghetti.
>The stove was left on leaving a pot to boil soggy noddles.
>Whoever lived here left in a hurry if the stove was still running.
>It had been nearly lunch time when the attack started.
>You watched your twin sister open up drawer and she pulled out a rather large kitchen knife before passing it to you.
>"I know its not ideal but anything is better than nothing. Now lets get moving."
>You followed Cloud Chaser outside and into the ally.
>Upon reaching the end the both of you stopped so she could peek out and make sure you wouldn't be spotted crossing the street.
>From where you were though, Ponyville seemed wholly unfamiliar to you.
>The acrid smell of smoke hung heavy in the air.
>A few buildings were on fire and left burning.
>Occasionally there was a body or two lying in the street.
>It was surreal really.
>It was as if you went to sleep and woke up in a nightmare.
>Except this was anything but.
>Cloud motioned for you to follow and the two of you slinked across to the the next alley as quietly as possible.
>The both of you walked past a large streak of red along the white wall of another building.
>Then you walked straight past its source.
>A unicorn mare in a brown shirt lied dead.
>She was curled up in a pool of her own blood.
>You couldn't put a name to her face but you remembered the mare's smile at the weekly meetings at town hall.
>She was somepony with hopes and dreams and now that she was lying dead in front of you... you couldn't even remember her name.
>You wondered if you would die alone like that.
>"Flitter stop staring an-"
>Your sister motions for the both of you to get down and you do so, hugging the wall.
>A few flights of griffons passed overhead, blocking out the sun and casting you in their shadows.
>She lets out a breath.
>"Shit that was close. We really need to get moving. I don't want to have to tangle with them anyomre if I can help it."
hey guys, i still have a few days of my vacation left. im glad that you have been keeping the thread alive and contributing with green >>25292706 i like your green if that means anything to you :) and of course >>25305146 im always excited to read yours.
ill see if i can post a bit more tomorrow sometime. ive been brainstorming a few things but i wanted to get your input on one thing
does manos really have the guts to end a life himself?
>his only real kill was when he blacked out and awoke with a dead chrissy in his hands
food for thought.
eat some chicken noodle soup and drink orange juice-Manos' health care plan article 2 section 23
>im always excited to read yours.
Thank you, sir.
>Does Manos have it in him to do the thing?
I think he might. Depends on the circumstances really. I could see him doing it to a pony who needed to die or a traitor. One for the many I could see as well. But the innocent when he knew they are truly innocent? No, not yet but hat doesn't mean he won't have it in him in the future.
tl;dr: Yes, but not without a good reason.
The problem here is the soup. The key word here is chicken when the health plan is for the equine populace.
For real tho you what you should be doing is sleeping as much as possible. From what I can tell you've been staying up to bump. Don't do that. Sleep and eat your soup with OJ.
I apreciate your... liking to my green? meh guess you get the idea
My plan was to make it at least mid duration, but a lot of shit started to happend here and meh, guess it'll be nothing but that.
Hope you come back soon with more glorious green
May Manos be with you
>does manos really have the guts to end a life himself?
Manos should man the fuck up!
He's the superior being on this equine and creature filled world, he can fucking kill anything he wants, nothing of value will be lost!
>Manos: Bye guys! I know that we're in the middle of a war, but I've decided to take a vacation for about a week! Good luck, assholes!
Now, would this pass in one of HS's entries? No; it would cause utter chaos. Now, HS, why do you seem to think that the rules that apply to you should be any different?
>dozens of my self-designed intercontinental probes are released from my home to begin their search for HS.
We NEED leadership, HS. No one will send this general into disarray, not even you.....
forgot to actually comment..
>HS gives a great green on a nearly daily basis
>continues to write on those days for several hours givng large amounts of content that he isnt required to give
>he then goes on vacation after writing for (at my last count) a month and a half.
>Unprofessional faggot attention whores up the thread
>then after doing that he declares that HS is sending the 'general' into disarray....
>HS is sending the 'general' into disarray
now now, this is some real unprofessionalism. real life takes more importance than pleasing us fags on 4chin. just think, this was a nice break and he can get back at it full tilt when he comes back. be patient, friend. let HS do his thing.
bit of an update on this. had that surgery today. it sucked ass but the fucking thing is out. i'll be back to writing when i heal up. one handed typing sucks.
Alright, I guess I'll feed you some more ideas.
1. Manos tries to alter the church to be more christian, and less cult-like.
2. There is a national holiday in the Reich, and parades are taking place everywhere, even in Equestria.
good news everyone, my vacation is coming to a close. i should be home tomorrow around the time i usually posted green. so either then or the next day ill be back on my regular schedule. which of course means the green will be back. time for me to start packing up and heading home
Good news everyone! My sickness is almost gone!
Lord HS, to make up for my blunders in the past, I have put together what I believe could become the standard Winter Uniform for the Blackshirts!
So, can we assume that this is Manos' ultimate goal for the Reich?
Very well. If no one else will contribute to the thread any time soon, I shall take it upon myself to do so.
>You are National Pride
>You have joined the Black Hands a few weeks ago, having served with the Brownshirts for 3 months prior to joining.
>Today is your first day of official duty with the Black Hands.
>You are proud to be serving a nation that you feel you helped build through hard work and loyalty.
>Once you finish buttoning the collar on your uniform, you walk over to your front door and take your cap off of the hook next to said door.
>Your day begins now.
>You have lived in Ponyville, or rather Ponyville City, all of your life.
>You remember the day that the commanding officer of your Brownshirt unit came to your house and asked that you partake in the attempted revolution that occurred a few weeks ago.
>You, of course, did not see the need for such action and politely declined his request.
>He was one of the many Brownshirts killed in the aftermath of the coup.
>This was the reason you left the Brownshirts, and joined the Black Hands.

>Now done with your pointless exposition to yourself (seriously, it's not like anyone's reading your thoughts), you walk out your front door.
>After about a 10 minute walk, of course greeting ponies along the way, you arrive at the BH camp that you were told to report to.
>There are 2 Black Hand guards, in full uniform, guarding the gate entrance to the camp.
>You walk up to them and pull out your identification card.
>One of them nods up to one of the two towers overlooking the entrance.
>The two metal gate doors slowly open, and you walk past the two guards, and into the camp.
>After spending a few minutes simply walking about the surprisingly quiet camp, you have located the Commander's Office, the mess hall, the large section of barracks, and all the other essentials in a military camp.
>You walk up to a sergeant in the clearing in the middle of the camp and ask him where the new recruits are to report to.
>he points to a plain looking building to your left. You notice how it is one of the few buildings in the camp without any markings indicating its purpose.
>You walk into the building to find several rows of chairs filled with at least 20 new recruits, all facing towards a podium at the front of the room.
>You take a seat near the front of the room, so that you may absorb as much information as possible.
> An older looking pony walks into the room and takes his place at the podium.
>The room goes quiet instantly.
>The pony at the podium clears his throat.
>"I am Hauptsturmführer (Captain) Steel Sword. You may call me Hauptsturmführer SS for short. Now, enough with the pleasantries. You are all here to prove yourselves to me, your 'initiation', if you will. Your objective is the local millionaire, Filthy Rich. Mr. Rich has been partaking in the illegal act of profiteering by selling information on the military and paramilitary forces within this city. Your mission is to raid his office building, detain or incapacitate his staff, and capture Mr. Rich ALIVE."
>"Now, you all may be wondering why you are being assigned a mission right off the bat, instead of going through basic training. Well, everyone here has had prior experience in the SA (Sturmabteilung or Assault Detachment), and we are in need of officers. So, anyone who does well in this mission will enter the BH with the rank of Unterscharführer (Sergeant). There will be a squad of BH observers recording the actions of each of you, so only the most successful recruits will awarded with the rank of Unterscharführer, while the rest will have to go through basic training."
Well Gentlemen, I've taken to wearing the uniform of the Black Hands everyday. I just got done ironing it, like I do every night; and I just got done hanging it up for the night.
I hope that everyone who reads this will be inspired to do as I do, and show your loyalty to Manos through your attire.
Well, we're approaching 500 posts again. I doubt that you guys trust me enough to make the next thread, so who will make it?
Ms. Harshwhinny hasn't made an appearance in several days. For all we know, she could have gone AWOL.
Mr. Unprofessional, you really make it a point to prove again and again that you are the weakest link in our chain of iron resolve.
Be informed that I always keep watch and would never abandon my post, because that would be terribly unprofessional and a disgrace to our lord Manos!
Having said that, a new professional thread for our lord's annals will come in due form and time.
Ms. Harshwhinny, I hope that you realize that I was simply poking fun at you. I, of course, realize that someone like you is too devoted to abandon Lord Manos.
It is time for a new professional Manos thread:
