Quantum Fail by Pony-Berserker Quantum Fail by Pony-Berserker
An interesting fact - this is the first comic of mine that I sketched on real paper with real pencils (I always sketch with my tablet), and it turned out to be even easier than sketching digitally.
So, the story is an epilogue to the Shining Armor & Cadance arc of the official MLP comic. If you haven't read that yet, go do that now, so you'll know why Poindexter is dressed like a mare, why is he holding hooves with a polo team member, and what is Al Calavicci doing there (It's a Quantum Leap reference, if someone is not familiar with the character).
I tell you guys - the MLP comics are actually better than the show, especially the issues made by :iconandypriceart::iconkatiecandraw::iconangieness: (go watch them on DA, if you are at this).
I made this comic because I see many works referencing the episodes of the show, but not the comics. Also, it's a sort of a tribute to the people working on the comics (don't forget the other creative teams!)

The characters in teh comic appeared in the aforememntioned issues. The yellow unicorn's name is Lemony Gem. The dark yellow earth pony's name is Flank Thrasher.

Twilight Sparkle: Ok, so you made it. Mind explanining what was that? I'm supposed to be ominiscient, yet I have no idea...

Skuld: This is not something Ponygons or Kaiju know about. Only Almega and Olpha know about this...

Twilight Sparkle: Great, a secret between the gods of Heaven. Well, tell me!

Skuld: Before Belldandy met Keiichi, a man called Sam Beckett called the Goddess Hotline, but he was shot down by a mugger before he could make his wish. It was not his time to die, so we initiated Project Quantum Leap.

Twilight Sparkle: Project Quantum Leap?

Skuld: Using a mix between our Heavenly technology and technology from Namek, we began transporting Sam Beckett's soul to different bodies, across different universes and dimensions, in different points in time. His new destiny is to set right what once went wrong, to fix the holes in the space-time continuum. Using the Namekian technology, we created an hologram, Al, that accompanies Sam Beckett in his travels. Meanwhile, in a place in Heaven called "The Waiting Room", an Almega called Ziggy monitors Sam's progress while keeping in Heaven the souls of the bodies Sam inhabits, and returning those souls to their bodies once Sam's missions are over. The Waiting Room, Al and Ziggy were all moved to the Underworld after Linkara destroyed Heaven, and Sam's missions still continue to this day.

Twilight Sparkle: Wow, a soul destined to wander around the omniverse for all eternity...all to fill a grander purpose...that really makes you think.

I agree the comics are way better then the cartoon, make no mistake I do love the cartoon, but as late it's not as good as it used to be.

I agree on the comics being an absolutely amazing complement to the show (can't possibly agree on them being 'better' than it, though); and the Shining Armor/Cadance arc was arguably the funniest one.

There's a little, not-sure-if-intentional typo in the title (spelling 'Qauntum Fail').

In Poindexter's game sheet, his character is also a female version of himself! (that Pony need to either get a sex-change or a girlfriend; one or the other...)
