Four Ponies of the Apocalypse by Chelonianmobile Four Ponies of the Apocalypse by Chelonianmobile
Okay, this requires some explaining. A user on the Good Omens fan community Lower Tadfield ([link]) found the MLP:FiM Pony Creator made by devArt user generalzoi ([link]) and used it to create pony versions of Crowley and Aziraphale. I got inspired. Thus, here are the Four Ponies of the Apocalypse; War, Famine, Pollution, and Death. I also included the retired Pestilence, as I felt bad about leaving him out. Death is the nearest I could get to a skeletal pony. His wing's a bit in the way, but his cutie mark is meant to be a scythe.

GO and the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse (c) Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, inspired loosely by the Book of Revelations.

Pestilence: When bugs didn't do the trick, I tried disease. When that didn't work, I just went along with talentless celebrities.

Hee, yeah, I was going for "vaguely stoned" with him :) I'm working on Them ponies as well, and possibly some others. All I know for Hastur and Ligur is that Hastur has to be yellow, as in The King In. For some reason I picture those two as closet bronies (if you buy the fan theory that Adam resurrected Ligur along with everyone else after the failed Apocalypse so he lived long enough to see the show, anyway) ...

Vaguely stoned, happy to be there, is there really much of a difference?

It's so fun to give weird interests to villains. Like, have you seen Sherlock? If you haven't, it's a modern version of Sherlock Holmes, and it's very well done. Well, a lot of the characters have blogs, and apparently in one of them you find out that Moriarty is a huge fan of Glee.

I think I've fallen victim to the Good Omens curse. I lent my copy to a friend, and he got to page 14 by the time school got out, and I'm not quite sure if I'm going to get it back, considering I graduated and he didn't.

One thing I was wondering about Good Omens; as I've mentioned before, the D&D god named Hastur has to appear every time someone says his name three times. If GO Hastur has to do the same thing, I have visions of his fellow demons misusing this ability horribly and summoning him at really awkward times just for kicks - I don't think demons need to shower, but there's gotta be some kind of equivalent.

I think Rule of Funny could forgive having him shower, if he poofs into existence holding a loofah and wearing nothing but a shower cap and a towel around his waist

*snerk* This idea was the cause of one of my favourites on the list of Famous Last Words of RPG characters ([link]): "What a useless scroll. It just says HASTUR HASTUR HASTUR over and over ..." According to the Cthulhu Mythos, Hastur can also be summoned by a performance of the play "The King in Yellow". I have visions of him and Ligur severely disappointing the performers by not appearing with the usual fire and brimstone but simply showing up to watch the play. And throwing popcorn. I think I should either write or draw that.

Also gotta wonder if the saying-the-name-three-times thing works on other demons. I have visions of Aziraphale using that to summon Crowley at bad times ...

And I couldn't help but think Good Omens would make an awesome crossover with Gorillaz. Would you believe that hasn't been done on ffnet yet?

Oh, man, that would be priceless. And so like them to do that.

Heehee. "I was driving, Aziraphale." "Oh. Sorry, dear." "Do you have any idea how long it takes for the Bentley to slow down from one hundred and seventeen miles an hour?" "Er..." "About five seconds if it hits a wall. You owe me lunch."

Well, considering that Murdoc is a Satanist with regular connections with Hell, not to mention the Hellhole in the basement of his old house, yeah, that would make a pretty good crossover. My favorite Good Omens crossovers, however, will always be the ones with Supernatural, because usually, any interaction between Aziraphale and Castiel is tear-jerkingly adorable.

For some reason, I really want to write a Good Omens/Sherlock crossover. I have no idea how it would work or what the plot would be, but I just think it would be hilarious to take two pairs of best friends that are frequently mistaken for gay couples and have them interact. Either that or a Sherlock/Mentalist crossover, but that would be way too short. One chapter for setup, and then the second chapter is a paragraph long because that's how long it would take Patrick Jane and Sherlock Holmes to solve a crime if they worked together.

Someone wrote the play "The King in Yellow", and I'm planning to buy a copy (Thom Ryng, I believe). What I've seen of it's pretty good, for a play which is supposed to drive watchers to insanity. Once I've had a read, I'll totally write that fic. On that topic, I saw someone referring to invoking the Hastur meme as "hasturbating". I had to giggle.

Plus 2D was raised in a town called Crawley. Think Crowley had anything to do with directing events so he and Murdoc would meet up? That'd be pretty cool. Not sure what Aziraphale would be doing - possibly something to do with Russel and his resident ghosts.

Hehehehe, indeed. I don't really watch either Sherlock or Mentalist - I don't have a TV - but I'm familiar enough with them to think that would be pretty cool.
