 Know Your Mare is an ongoing fanfiction by Overlord-Flinx that parodies the Know Your Stars sketch from All That. The story focuses primarily on Discord, Queen Chrysalis and Pipsqueak who host a show on which they play the role of disembodied voices who make a mockery of various characters. The fanfic has spawned numerous spin-offs collectively known as the Flinx-verse as well as a series of animations by Bogyle Bronies. The fanfic was first published on but is now regularly updated only on FIMFiction.


Know Your Mare includes very little narration, being composed mostly of dialogue. For the most part, characters are identified by text font and color. As a result, most chapter word lengths fall under 1,000 words. Initially, Discord, Chrysalis and Pipsqueak were not identified by name with clues being used to identify whom the disembodied voices belong to.


The series initially had only Discord as a disembodied voice humiliating various characters. Chapter 18 introduced Queen Chrysalis as a more belligerent host. Chapter 24 introduced Pipsqueak.

Over time, the story began to focus less on the guests and more on the hosts and their many misadventures as Discord and Chrysalis become Pipsqueak's guardians. Sunset Shimmer later joined as the fourth and final host.
