  5. in the stories I think up, my self-insert is found as a baby and raised by a pony.
  6. a different pony to raise me is a different what if scenario to the Main one, being the CMC. sometimes, these what if scenario even change tones and genres!
  7.  
  8. I wanna talk about em, so pick one and I'll tell you!

  32. sure, I'll do Trixie first.
  33. disclaimer: in general, a story about a more important character will be longer and more fleshed out than that of a minor character. so somebody like Trixie will have more story than a mare like, phuken, berry punch or some shit.
  34. let's a go:
  35. > Trixie
  36. > her whole schtick was performance for a living, and she did it because she wants to feel admired, important, wanted, and loved.
  37. > after all, you only get love if you're WORTH love.
  38. > failing different types of acts, she travels around and finds the child.
  39. > "an exotic animal that probably nobody has ever seen before?"
  40. > Trixie ain't smart, but she ain't Stoopid, neider. she knows this might be her ticket to admiration and love.
  41. > but she can't just show people a baby white goblin thing with a round head, flat face, no snout, and no fur.
  42. > she needs to let it grow, and then she can incorporate it into her show.
  43. > Trixie raises the child, initially not giving it enough love. whatever love he receives is all in hopes that he will be her ticket to societal appreciation, and a stable financial situation. she grows attached, but not too attached.
  44. > learning that it's a predator (via teeth) isn't a deal breaker; she's worked with lions before.
  45. > she calls this child "Pola," btw, (I just thought it sounded cute.)
  46. > lucky for Trixie, not only does he grow fast enough, he's also VERY eager to learn. this thing learns SCARILY FAST. might even be as smart as ponies, if this rate keeps up.
  47. > foreshadowingisanarrativeblah
  48. > when the child is old enough, he joins the show and dazzles the crowd. not by his performance, but by just existing.
  49. > "what is surely a brand new monster, so expertly tamed by a pony!"
  50. > "a new, never-before-seen creature?!? this is the scientific discovery of the century!!"
  51. > "goodness, what grotesque proportions. it must be an alien."
  52. > "Trixie 'tamed' that thing? you JUST know...."
  53. > the two things to take from this are:
  54. > Trixie gets no admiration for this, despite that being her one goal. however, Pola rakes in too much money for her to just get rid of it, so she has to humor him if she wants a decent meal each night.
  55. > ponies like Pola ONLY for the novelty of a new creature discovered. nobody cares about him on a personal level, despite how intelligent he is and becomes.
  56. > this dynamic makes for a shorter story that either sees Trixie have to learn what love and acceptance really means in order to keep her pet/child and stay happy with her life, or the story veers towards Pola never receiving the love necessary for him, and leaving after he comes to terms that who he saw as his mother just can't love him for some reason.
  57. > because the story is entirely contained to whatever benign antics Trixie is up to, Princess Celestia doesn't see the new creature as a threat to her perfect world, so she remains almost entirely out of the story, besides a brief mention.
  58. what next?

  62. Sweetie Belle is a part of the CMC, which is the main continuity that everything else is inspired from. it's an entire epic that I could never do justice in a cluttered thread, unless everybody wants it.

  98. RAINBOW DASH STORY
  99. > In my many different stories, I get discovered in many different ways, places, and times, some older, some younger. but ALL are babies to be raised. thanks, Oedipus!
  100. > Dash is unique because I made her story discover me the earliest I could possibly be discovered.
  101. > I couldn't figure out how to go about the discovery for the longest time, and it annoyed me. I ended up lying in bed for hours thinking to myself about nothing, until I said "why couldn't good writing ideas just fall out of the sky?"
  102. > it wasn't a high-quality idea, but it WAS funny to me. and it did fix a lot of problems in the story very seamlessly and early on.
  103. > I essentially dropped baby-me out of the sky.
  104. > BlueGoFast sees a thing falling from the sky.
  105. > toddler ponies managing to fall off of cloudsdale isn't unheard of. just very rare.
  106. > bluegofast does what she does best: go really fast.
  107. > no, not "zap to the extreme."
  108. > Dashie catches the baby. it is very cold, and needs warmth.
  109. > looking around, she finds no sign of parent-creatures that this thing could have come from
  110. > the obvious thing to do is take whatever this poor bastard is to Fluttershy.
  111. unrelated, but I love how Fluttershy's role in the show is just "pokemon daycare."
  112. > but this potato baby needs warmth NOW. or else it dies.
  113. > oh well, she takes it home to warm it, because dash is great at many things, but thinking is NOT one of them.
  114. > while she warms the baby with her body heat, because "that's what Shy would do(?)", she feels the baby hug her, and something in her finally snaps.
  115. > years of feeling like she had to be the best and coolest thing in a twenty kilo radius crumbles as she realizes that this creature would love her like tank does; love her just because.
  116. > she names it Castell, after the castellanos clouds that look like they're falling from the top of the sky
  117. > of course, after warming it she immediately takes it to the resident "pokemon daycare lady," flittershoosh.
  118. > a whole thing happens where the six marvel at a new species, Rainbow sacrifices her feelings to offer up the creature to Fluttershy to give it a proper life, but the child already imprinted on her so he doesn't want to leave her, standard stuff.
  119. > but he can't stay at Rainbow's house, this little runt falls right through the clouds!
  120. > an episode or two could be dedicated to Dash doing different things to get the money to move down to a land house instead of a cloud house.
  121. > dash raises the baby like a pet at first, but as I said with the Trixie story, as is the same with all of these stories: this creature has an INSATIABLE lust for learning, and it learns FAST.
  122. > Twilight, who is actually IN this story, is stunned at the rate of growth. she and flutters agree that since it started to learn the Equis tongue without schooling, it was too smart to be a pet. Dash will have to raise it as a child.
  123. ran out of characters, I'll keep going in another reply

  128. continuing the Rainbow Dash story:
  129. > dash is not smart. we've been over this. her resume is a waffle house napkin that says her skills are: going fast and eating ass. written in stains that aren't even possible in a standard waffle house.
  130. > she has a Jock's smooth brain. no ugwy weinculs, smoov. thoughts = sads, but muscle = glads
  131. > so naturally, the only way she knows how to raise a child is to coach an athlete.
  132. > cheerilee is brought in as a tutor, teaches Castell how to speak and read, but everything else is all on Dash.
  133. > this.... surprisingly works pretty well. and that's what annoys twilight the most.
  134. > earlier episodes/chapters would involve a young Castell doing cute things, like trying to show Dash how much he loves her, or trying to help her with things, or learning about this world. and dash trying to juggle parenthood with her innate desire for an open, carefree life, like before. this usually comes in the form of her taking Castell places he shouldn't be. most stories are from dashie's pov
  135. > later, when Castell grows up, it'll be about trying to justify his existence, being the only.... whatever he is, in a world full of ponies. this is hilarious to me, because I every other major story, this is an overarching character problem that practically haunts him, and yet in the dash story it only lasts like two or three episodes. most of these will be Castell's pov
  136. > but still, trying to join sports and athletics against ponies doesn't go well at all. this leads into the final arc where Dash and Castell both SHARE the pov, pretty much. Castell is depressed, but doesn't want to drag his mom into this. Dash simply cannot be without her athlete nature, but can't stand to see her boy so dejected. this leads into character interest v character interest type narrative conflict where miscommunication and lack of self-understanding leads to Castell trying to get Dash to leave him alone so she can live the life he knows she deserves, but Dash is trying to get him to open up so she can help him, but because she has the brainpower of wet toilet paper she can't do it right. then, when they finally learn how to properly communicate with each other in a healthy manner, dash and Castell try to figure out something that works for both of them.
  137. Celestia keeps a close eye, but because no threat comes to her perfect world, she just fucks off after a while.
  138. this story's enjoyability hinges entirely on how dash is a dumbass and lacks the parenting know-how, but is too prideful to ask for help, allowing antics and hijinks and all sorts of hullabaloo.

  143. Limestone &' Marble? the rock farm. yes.
  144. that's one of the more boring ones. but I did what I could:
  145. > rock farm
  146. > one of them cracks open a rock, finds a baby.
  147. > names it Salt. (thanks, I hate it.)
  148. > Salt grows to work on the farm.
  149. > swole as shit. probably the second or third strongest version of the boy, in terms of physical strength. but the number one spot always goes to the Sweet Apple Acres version. that's a great story, too.
  150. > anyways, Salt lives a very lonely, boring life, just breaking rocks.
  151. > BORING?? NO. THIS CAN'T HAPPEN. I WON'T LET IT.
  152. > SORRY WEIRD INTERNET PEOPLE. THIS STORY BELONGS TO PINKIE PIE NOW!
  153. > I'LL GET THAT BOY TO SMILE AND LAUGH IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO, HEE HEE! <3
  154. > all I gotta do is figure out how to pry him away from that farm.... once he tries a cupcake, that'll get him to smile! and a tickle fight might get him to laugh! oh ooh, or maybe I can bounce him on a trampoline!! yeah yeah, a trampoline made of COTTON CANDY!!
  155. thanks Ponka badonka, but I think they get the point.
  156. every episode would just be pinkie trying to get him away from work to try new things, and make him smile.
  157. > can't you at least tell me how I did it?
  158. nope. that's YOUR punishment for hijacking MY thread, pinkie stink.
  159. > meanie

  188.  
  189. as for scootaloo, Castell and she have a rivalry that starts out with Scooterboo being diagnosed with terminal 7 butthurt, but then evolves into friendly rivalry, as she realized that Dash can make room for the both of them.
  190. many episodes would just be them getting up to hijinks.

  227. I'll do Pinkie Pie next, since it's basic:
  228. > just like GLaDOS told me: "Science has now validated your mother's decision to abandon you on a doorstep."
  229. > except there is no mother. there is only doorstep, because I couldn't think of a fitting way to introduce the baby here. lazy? sure. if you have better ideas, then tell me.
  230. > the doorstep is Sugarcube Corner.
  231. > initially, the Cakes take him in, because they can't get enough of raising foals. even if this.... thing is rather unconventional. worst case scenario, it just turns out to be a pet that just got spoiled, right?
  232. > let's name the boy "Malva," because that's my favorite dessert. my sister used to make it for me, and I miss her every day.
  233. > enough trauma-dumping, BACK TO STORY:
  234. > The Cakes try to raise Malva, but juggling THREE fillies, whilst one is a species that nobody even knows? not even Flutters knows?? it's just too much for them.
  235. > dog-tired, and on their last limbs due to exhaustion, the Cakes finally relent and allow Pinkie to try to raise Malva. but only for long enough for them to go take a fucking nap already.
  236. > after all, how much trouble could they possibly get into in just two hours?
  237. > Pink's face when she knows EXACTLY how much trouble they can get into in just two hours
  238. > one of the most innocent stories, it's mostly just Malva having a parent that enables reckless behavior.
  239. > Malva and Pink run around town, causing all sorts of Hullabaloo
  240. > turns out, letting Malva burn some of his energy makes managing him easier once he's all tuckered out.
  241. > every episode in the first season would be pretty formulaic, almost to a fault, where one of them wants to try some new antics, the other agrees and comes along, then they make a mess and have to fix it, and they learn a lesson at the end and get closer. like regular show, except the cosmic threats come in the next season.
  242. > next season, a little time skip, Malva is all grown up. he could easily be smart or strong, if he even cared about that. But instead, all he cares about is going around town and playing pranks, singing and dancing, having fun, and partying hard. he also loves trying to introduce new ingredients to the bakery, but that's whatever.
  243. > dickscord shows up.
  244. > awwsheeit.nyuggah
  245. > Pink and Malva are the only two who remain generally unfazed by Discord's tomfuckery, because Pinkie has had years of growing with a chaotic little gremlin, so she's just in her element. and the same with Malva, knowing how to "act like you write the rules and just go with it" to circumvent anything discord can offer
  246. > in order to stop discord, the Tag-Team of Pinkie &' Malva have to be more chaotic than Discord in order to usurp the title of "Lord Of Chaos."

  264. CONTEXT FOR CHRYSALIS:
  265. > by now, you've noticed me mentioning "this doesn't interfere with Celestia's perfect world, so she isn't a part of this story."
  266. > this is because Celestia is Single-hoofedly the most important character in my main continuity, bar-none.
  267. > in the main continuity, the one where I get picked up by the CMC, Celestia is actually much more powerful. her entire goal in her immortal life is to reset the world over and over, until she gets it "juuuuuuust right." after all, who cares if an entire planet full of life gets erased, when she can just put it back in an instant, ready to fix what she seems as "broken"?
  268. > whenever the human child enters the world, Celestia has either already achieved her goals, or is really damn close to perfection. so when it turns out she can't reset the world while the human is alive, she only panics if he's a threat to her "perfect world."
  269. > in the CMC timeline, he is a threat. he's about as "threat" as you can get. I won't go into too much detail, but it's an amazing story filled with murder, betrayal, war, and splitting the friendship of the main six in HALF, torn between differing ideals.
  270. > any time the human is deemed a threat to the perfection, war must come, and the human must die.
  271. > but the thing about humans in a world full of horses is, we're still the apex predator. nothing stands a chance in hell against us. so the human is like a super-soldier.
  272.  
  273. and that's the context, because when we join the changeling empire, we become a force of mass destruction. loyalty to the queen, LONG MAY SHE REIGN!

  389. as for discord, I'm not so sure. in the original continuity he was simply kept in stone because it wasn't practical to release discord while trying to capture the hairless monkey that doesn't get tired. if you have any ideas, I'm all ears

  410. let's get the whole "this thing doesn't look like any creature I've seen before!" schtick out of the way, already.
  411. > shiny takes him back and calls twilight. she and her friend Fluttershy probably know what this thing is.
  412. > over the weeks he waits for them to arrive, (because the crystal empire is just pony Siberia, let's be honest), Cadenza takes over caretaking. raising it like a pet, whilst also raising Flurry Heart. Cadence names it "Lucky," because that's a pet's name.
  413. then the whole schtick of twilight and flutters arriving and saying they don't know about it, offered to flutters but the boy already imprinted, yadda yadda caprese panini. you already know this part.
  414. > so Lucky is living it big in the castle. can't eat at the table or anything because he's a pet, but that's a small price to pay.

  416. > Lucky is listening. he's always been listening and learning everything he can. that's human nature, after all.
  417. > Lucky learns to speak. everybody in the palace is shocked to hear him suddenly ask why he eats on the floor
  418. > when shiny ask him how he learned, he asks why didn't they teach him
  419. > now to put this into context, flurry heart was already broken OP, so she gets accelerated learning due to Alicorn shenanigans.
  420. > but Lucky learned everything faster than she did, just by eavesdropping on the tutoring sessions, as well as keeping an open ear in general around the palace.
  421. > the revelation of Lucky's intellect makes Cadence feel guilty: "this creature wasn't a pet, it deserved to be raised like an equal child! and I never noticed it!"
  422. > shining is.... well he's just terrified. whatever this thing is CAN'T be safe for his precious daughter, Alicorn be damned. he doesn't like it, but he keeps his mouth shut before he says something he regrets.

  425. also because he's Cadenza's little bitch. what a loser. your crowning achievement in the entire cartoon was throwing your wife out of a window? bravo, Captain of the guard. I expected nothing from you, and I'm still let down.

  439. > Lucky's rather sheltered life leaves a lot to be desired, and Flurry agrees. but when they sneak out and see the city, the common folk balk at Lucky's appearance. he even overheard that princess flurry shouldn't be seen with such a horrid beast.
  440. > Lucky is broken, and realizes he has never seen anybody like himself ever in his life

  447. at this point, I'm torn:
  448. either Lucky realizes that Flurry loves him for who he is and that's enough for him, and Cadence talks to him about how love works,
  449. or
  450. Flurry and Lucky venture off to find any signs of humanity, while cadence and shiny chase after them, very concerned for the welfare of their hasty child(ren).

  578. > we're going to land some ships, and send more land assault. we have plenty of anti-aerial artillery behind us. and tempest, always eager to prove her power to the world and to her boss, is eager to lead the charge personally.

  584. > the screech breaks the hypnosis of all under its influence, and the hippogriffs hear the unholy shriek. despite now having an advantage over their invaders, they run to the ocean as well, in abject horror.

  589. now normally, the convoy flees West back to storm king, and her entire convoy warns the king to never venture east for a long time. this allows the storm king to show up much later.

  601. > Tempest doesn't like it, but due to the major damage to the city and the losses her convoy took, she is ordered to stay in the city and hold it until the king himself arrives to asses it all. he was probably going to do this anyways, since he really wanted this city, but Tempest is not looking forward to the inevitable conversation.
  602. > storm king arrives eventually, and he can't be too mad. we DO have the city now, and there are plenty of treasures

  638. > after studying maps, Tempest suggests the Crystal Empire. securing it fast enough would mean they take the crystal heart, and can turn it into a weapon so powerful that no amount of princess chicanery can stop them.
  639. > and because they learned that Visorak's blood can be used to make all kinds of nasty biochemical weapons, such as a vitrification gas, (gas that turns things to obsidian glass/other crystal) or intense hallucinogens, Tempest has a plan of her own, including a theoretical new way to use it. maybe this is the way they unleash Visorak's hidden power....
  640. > Now the crystal Empire is in the pony equivalent of SIBERIA. the only plant that grows there is spruce, for lumber. so the only way they feed their populace is via import. they support this demand with their mining and studies of magic, their collection of relics, and amazing colleges, among other things. but the point is, this place has ZERO food, and relies entirely on trade with greater Equestria and somewhat Yakyakistan in order to stay afloat.
  641. > therefore, it's incredibly easy for the storm king and his forces to make garrisons and camps around the city's borders, effectively surrounding the barrier that protects the ponies inside

  706. and that's as far as I got. I'm not sure where to take it next, to be honest. Indecision haunts me.
  707. do we lose here? do we trap the mass in a prison made by the crystal heart? do we kill it with the cold, and continue to conquer? do we escape and need to unite the nations to stop it?
  708. the main problem with this one is that there's not much character development going on. it's just conquest. which is a fun little fantasy with mixes of Lovecraftian horror, but it leaves a lot to be desired from other readers.

  845. > because Twilight is such an important character for both the show AND my autistic fever dream stories, her story could probably vary, depending on when we give her the baby. probably not all that much, though. just little bits here and there. it even changes drastically around whether Twilight finds the boy as a baby or a young child! I'll just pick the one in the beginning, for brevity's sake.
  846. > early Twilight, just barely showed up in the show:
  847. > Twilight is conducting a study on the wildlife in the everfree forest, for reasons unimportant to the story.
  848. > the same setup as the Fluttershy story, except the boy is a little bit older and able to fend for itself in the wild. from our audience perspective, he should probably be somewhere around 5 to 7 years old, surviving by ambushing prey or making traps.

  876. I have always seen Fluttershy as a conflicted case of truths versus ideals;
  877. the truth is that nature should be left alone to its own devices, a truth that Fluttershy knows all too well. but Fluttershy's ideal world is a world of kindness. her gentle heart makes it impossible for her to see animals be hurt, so she can't help but save them. it's a minor conflict, character versus self, and I really think it makes Fluttershy more deep and interesting of a character, even if it does make her a hypocrite.

  892. depends if Tempest sees it as a problem.
  893. if she sees that the cold hinders it, then she might just leave the Lovecraftian Nightmare to die in the snow. but that's if we decide that the cold would still be fatal. (it would line up with the Uvollævir story....)

  904. > AFTER THIS MYSTERIOUS NEW FIGHTER DEFEATED A MONSTER, HE WAS MORTALLY WOUNDED, AND TWILIGHT RUSHED HIM TO THE SAFETY OF FLUTTERSHY'S COTTAGE.

  915. > she names the creature "Tenacity," after its refusal to submit to the harsh everfree monsters. but Tenacity is a long and dumb sounding name to me, so let's just shorten it to "Tena," pronounced like "Tæy~Nah."

  974. > Fluttershy being fully distracted by Tena's return, she is forgetting her anger towards twilight. it's obvious that she wanted this too, no matter how much she tries to convince herself otherwise.
  975. > Twilight tries to give Tena to Fluttershy, because duh. however, and say it with me now, Twilight has already unwittingly imprinted on the boy, and now he simply refuses to leave Twilight.

  979. > a couple of things happen over a small pocket of time:
  980. > foremost, the fact that Twilight has tamed a brand new creature found in the everfree and is keeping it as her pet in the Library becomes a known fact in ponyville. but the news is broken smoothly, so nobody panics. just Twilight doing Twilight things. if anything, it increases the visitors to the library just a little bit!
  981. > the Mane Six even stop by often just to see "just what dumb antics is Tena up to today?"

  983. > it takes an act of Congress just to keep Tena from freaking out if Twilight leaves for more than twenty minutes.
  984. > also, Spike tries to get along with Tena. and he succeeds! Tena sees Spike like an older brother, despite Tena being a head taller than Spike.
  985. > lastly, Twilight is doing a swell job taking care of Tena.
  986. > Twilight is constantly studying Tena, and Fluttershy makes frequent visits for similar reasons.
  987. > Twilight is testing Tena with puzzles now, and finds something astonishing, and I think we know what it is:
  988. > Tena will solve any puzzle Twilight gives him with relative ease.
  989. > from simple mazes and mirror tests to tool usage and water displacement. Tena is well-aware of the world he lives in, and how nature works. either that, or he's learning EXTREMELY quickly. either or.

  1090. > well-deserved, but Tena's gonna be in big trouble.
  1091. now, we can write this the quick way, or the long way:
  1092. the quick way includes everybody vouching for Tena, saying they saw Diamond Tiara hurting him and heard his yelp. even Cheerilee would have been paying enough attention to have tried to warn the duo not to be so rough with Tena. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon are blamed, and Tena doesn't get cooked because he's let Off The Hook.

  1096. >>40889614
  1097. the long way, however, involves Cheerilee not having paid enough attention, and Diamond Tiara getting her daddy involved.
  1098. Tiara would still want Tena all to herself, so Filthy Rich finds a legal loophole to claim ownership of Tena, much to the distress of Tena and Twilight.
  1099. and there would be an amazing side-story of trying to get Tena back, and Tena feeling miserable in an entire mansion without love, and trying to escape. however, I feel like this fits better in Fluttershy's story. her story has a lot less going on than I'd like, and I think this would really be nice for her development.
  1100. so, now we continue with Twilight's story.

  1105. Ah right, pre-CMC cutie mark Diamond was a bully. I bet her mom would try starting up a mob.
  1106.  
  1107. >>40889622
  1108. > legal loophole
  1109. I don't think that would make much sense. Isnt Twilight here already an alicorn first of all and failing that, Celestia's student? Not to mention that the loophole would have to allow Filthy to either claim guardianship over a child he never met or ownership of a wild animal in the care of someone else despite him having absolutely no authority or knowledge in animal care.
  1110.  
  1111. Not to mention the fact that Filthy does tend to at least be somewhat responsible when it comes to Diamond. He is willing to punish her if he notices things going too far. I don't think it would be reasonable to assume that this otherwise docile creature would just randomly hurt her daughter for no reason and failing that, why would he want it near her in his house if its supposedly dangerous? I'd say it would be very hard to make this work in a logical way.
  1112.  
  1113. It could, however, lead to some sort of mini court case of sorts, maybe one where Fluttershy helps prove Tena's sapience, which would turn this from an animal attack to two kids getting into a fight. The outcome of that, however, would in large depend on the severity of how hard he swatted Diamond off.

  1116. >>40890831
  1117. >>40889936
  1118. I understand. I'd actually like to work this through, see what's the better approach for this story:
  1119.  
  1120. first, twilight isn't an Alicorn yet. and second, you see, Tena is classified as an animal, because there's already a list of which species are sapient enough. but given how many new species of monsters or animals pop out of the everfree back when that law was written, they simply put a band-aid, fix on it by saying any new species isn't deemed sapient until parliament deems it otherwise. this worked for a thousand years because all you could ever find in the damn everfree were animals and monsters, so nobody predicted that a new species would pop out of the woodworks and gain sapience.
  1121.  
  1122. as for Celestia stepping in, I JUST don't see that happening. need I remind you that Luna is still fairly new to the scene after a thousand years, and modern pony society never knew she was even fucking REAL until like maybe two months ago. so Celestia suddenly saying "hey I have a sister by the way, and she's immediately going into royal power by my side!" causes a bit of ruckus for the government in Canterlot. shining armor being married to Cadenza around the same time that the crystal empire comes back, and also around the same time that Celestia personally trains Shining's baby sister? there's just too much going on for the elite and powerful to not point and shout "nepotism!" in a vain attempt to grab more political leverage or power. Celestia NEEDS to play it cool for a while. if anything, she would just agree to sort things out later.
  1123.  
  1124. as for filthy rich, I agree that he's a better father than we tend to let on, but he's still very much like his original writing inspiration; Sir Robert Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. if Diamond Tiara wants this exotic new pet, it's only a matter of time before he cracks under all of the "I wanna!'s"
  1125.  
  1126. but again, it's not that big of a deal, since I would be reserving this for Fluttershy's story, instead of Twilight's story. Tena in Twilight's story gets off scott-free in the span of half an episode, where he never really leaves the playground, whereas with Fluttershy this plot point could last for half a fucking season, because there's just so much more I can do with these characters when it's Fluttershy's problem instead of Twilight's.
  1127.  
  1128. but again, I'd really like to work this back and forth between us, try to iron out the best way to write this.

  1138. the mayor mare angle is strong, but a mayor's power is executive, not legislative nor judicial. there can only be so much she can do, and that's not even mentioning the higher politicians that Filthy Rich has no doubt befriended with his deep pockets and high status.

  1152. > so Tena is learning how to talk and read.
  1153. > Tena doesn't believe his love for momma Twilight is mutual, but that Twilight sees him more as a fascination
  1154. > in order to get closer to Twilight, he studies magic. there's just one problem with this, and I'll bet the both of you know what that problem is:
  1155. > humans just ain't magic. they don't have a drop of it in them.
  1156. > twilight knows this from her experiments, so she tries to warn Tena. but Tena knows that working on magic would bond them further.
  1157. > Tena is a fast learner as expected, but Twilight is simply a prodigy. there's no way for Tena to catch up, especially with his inability to actually practice whatever magic he studies or tries to develop.
  1158. > Tena needs a way to practice magic> somehow, anyhow.
  1159. > there are a couple of ways he could go about this.
  1160. > he could try to find a way to get his body to hold, process, absorb, expel, and control the magic,
  1161. > he could develop a way to draw magic from the environment around him,
  1162. > he can develop a tool or magical artifact to do all of the magical heavy-lifting for him,
  1163. > he can specialize in magical artifacts, and collect and master a platitude of dangerous macguffins, having to quest to actually find them
  1164. > or he can study ritual magic, a magic that involves numerous long-lost methods of conjuring, some even unethical. involves things like drawing symbols and chanting verses, trading your vitality for magical power and abilities, etc.
  1165. > this story will probably be a lot of exploring the magic system in Equestria.

  1176. Not so hot take, but I enjoy stories involving Anon not cause of self-instert but because most characterizations of Anon that writefriends make are fun characters I enjoy reading about. From all the fics ive read Anons range from shiposting dipshits to pretty normie fellas to downright fucking sociopaths. Most are well written and fun characters to read about and see interact in with the MLP world.
  1177.  
  1178. Sorry if this was a bit unrelated to your question, I just saw the OP meme about Anon self inserts and wanted to give my dumb opinion.

  1189. I honestly agree, I dont like it when Anon swears as much as a Hazbin Hotel character and is very on the nose about being a 4channer. I appreciate more subtly you know. Asshole Anon can be funny when written well but sometimes he comes across as a plain jerk. It may be hersey but I find the most normie-ish Anons to be the most pleasant in these kinda stories.

  1208. > Tena will start with the relic method. it seems the most straightforward and realistic approach.
  1209. > he collects a variety of curios, but of the few that still work in his hands they are all too specific, usually able to do one thing.
  1210. > not very useful, at least not at the moment. each trinket will probably have it's use case eventually, and he'll be happy to have collected them. but for now, his quest to become magical only deepens.
  1211. > studying magic further, he decides to see what role magic has on a societal level, in particular how the common folk perceive magic in the world.
  1212. > he comes to learn that ponies perceive most magic like a soul with extra steps. only the princesses have truly holy magic in this world, but all ponies have magic. In that way, they're connected to their glorious princesses.
  1213. > this creates a deep-seeded self-loathing in Tena, because he has no inherent magic in him, and can't even derive or hold magic from outside sources.
  1214. > why should he be worthy of love? no wonder he's just some fascination.
  1215. > reminder for you; Twilight does in fact love Tena as family. it's just that being a shut-in super nerd who lives to study and test will make your expressions of love.... a bit lacking in believability.
  1216. > back to the story.
  1217. > Tena needs to find a way to MAKE himself magical. gaudy trinkets will simply make Twilight like the trinkets instead of him.
  1218. > (yes yes, it's all so clear now! I have to find a way to make my body absorb, hold, process, and use magic, just like every pony else!)
  1219. > (a tall order for someone less gifted. but I'm plenty gifted enough, and I'm a Sparkle, too. I can do anything. I WILL do anything.)
  1220. > people will do some crazy things for love, man. especially when they feel like they've gone their entire life without it. it's the second largest cause of wars, behind religion. that's pretty damn spicy, if you ask me.
  1221. > before this, Tena was very sociable with the mane six plus spike. he would help out at the apple farm, vibe with dash, advertise Sugarcube Corner, there's frankly not much he can do for rarity since she already has a dragon simp as a slave, and he would just be around Fluttershy a lot in general. he would even chill with spike and big Mac as one of the bros, and played with the CMC often. ponies in ponyville knew Tena by name and always said hello.
  1222. > fuck, Tena went on small quests to get those relics and curios mentioned earlier, and he brought along his friends as his posse.
  1223. > but now, Tena is very secluded, and distant. he just doesn't want to talk to you very often anymore.
  1224. > he's changed, and it's getting kinda concerning....
  1225. > well, he started putting in CRAZY hours at Sweet Apple Acres for a small pittance of money, so I guess that's something.

  1251. the glove is just to conceal my personal identity. the ring is to show that I am indeed Narcolepsy Anon.
  1252. >>40895884
  1253. gee, I can't tell if I wish so or I hope not.
  1254. but that ring used to go on my right-hand middle finger. it was a gift from my sister, the only light in a bleak world. I miss her every day. eventually I grew, but the ring didn't, obviously. so I had to put it on my left ring finger to make it fit. In the end, I think it's better this way; I don't think I'm emotionally capable of handling love. I've been hurt too many times, and the only person who I ever believed to be good in this world I had to watch slowly die and excruciating death to the big C. my stories are how I cope with my emotions.
  1255.  
  1256. the boy is one of my two versions of self-insert, particularly the first and more tragic one, Wollævir, or wally for short. not my real name, but it sounded nice. not only does he represent the horrible things I hate about myself, but also the horrible things about humanity in general. however, when I decided to drop him into ponyville as a child with amnesia, it became interesting to see history either repeat itself, or instead be painfully thrust upon him.
  1257. in all of my writing for him, the number one rule is that Wally is never allowed to have a happy ending, no matter what. it always ends in tragedy, because that's what he deserves. if you knew the horrid things this character did before coming to Equis, you would see his arrival with abject fear, just as Celestia does in half of these what-if's.
  1258. in fact, the happiest Wally EVER becomes is in ponyville, before he regains his memories, proving that the only way Wally is happy is if he's NOT Wally.
  1259. >>40895973
  1260. oh, but of course! the closer the boy is to either twilight, the princesses, or the crusaders, the longer and more complicated and interesting the story will become.

  1290. > enter, Trixie Lullamoon. no, you're not allowed to make the joke, it's bullshit propaganda and you know it.
  1291. > while Trixie isn't capable of any complex magic or special surgeries, she does have some know-how about some less than spotless mares willing to do filthy acts at a reasonable price. or a hefty price thanks to inflation. and this is all due to her little.... episodes....
  1292. > Tena knows that Trixie will be his gateway to the materials and skills he needs.
  1293. > luckily, tracking her down is easy as all hell. her main job is as a performer, so not only does she tend to make a big noise wherever she goes, but she also has to advertise her show, as well as where she'll go next. the only problem is catching up to her.
  1294. > oh wait, our protagonist is a "human." you know, the "hairless apes that don't get tired?"
  1295. > Tena has enough independence to leave for a short time, but not a long one. so he has to "take spike with him."
  1296. > luckily, Spike has his own reasons for going, and will be easy to leave alone with no consequence. it's a convention for power ponies!
  1297. > so while Spike fucks off to the power ponies convention, Tena fucks off to Trixie, and talks to her.
  1298. > now Trixie remembers Twilight Sparkle's new pet. so despite her not being a malicious pony per-se, she's perfectly fine just letting her rival's friend get himself into trouble. shouldn't be too bad. after all, how deep could he possibly be trying to dig himself? all she has to do is tell Twilight the less-than-appealing things Tena is after, and Twilight will be all over him like a bad rash before Tena could do anything.
  1299. > so they make a deal: Tena performs a couple of shows, then she tells him where to find the parts he wants.
  1300. > performance goes well, and Trixie spills the beans to Tena.
  1301. > but Tena isn't as naive as she had initially hoped. instead, she was found to be the shortsighted one; as Tena reveals that no matter what she tells Twilight, she will never believe her. after being her rival, bullying her friends, and just being a notorious liar in general, she can't do ANYTHING that matters.
  1302. > "not that it's a big deal, though. it's not like I'm hurting anybody, right? anyways, I'll keep you in mind. maybe we can keep up our shows?"
  1303. > Trixie dons the face of a truly defeated mare, as somebody finally tells to her face that nobody will ever trust her again.

  1313. > here's what Tena wants from her: unicorn horns, pegasi wings, and earth-pony hooves.
  1314. > and keep in mind that before Twilight, Tena was a little boy, SURVIVING in the harsh Everfree forest, scavenging every little thing just to survive. so taking some parts doesn't seem all that evil to him at all.
  1315. > after all, it's not like they're going to need those parts anymore, right? and it's not like he's hurting anybody.

  1319. > okay, let's just skip all that chicanery; the taxidermist allows for visually indistinguishable fake prosthetics to replace the body parts for funeral attendees to believe it. the mortician now has a bunch of magic-heavy parts, and Tena's extra work with AppleJack got him enough money to pay for them. all he needs to do is find a place to store them without being found or suspected, and then he needs a way to "inject them" into his body.
  1320. > everfree? everfree. about two ponies end up missing in there every YEAR, it's so dangerous.
  1321. > now, due to the way that the medical system works, no surgeon in their right mind would perform this.

  1324. > WOWIE! THIS BOOK IS ABOUT SURGERY! I'M SURE CURIOUS! I GUESS I'LL READ THAT ONE, FOR NO REASON IN PARTICULAR!
  1325. > Pony surgery is usually unanimously a unicorns' job, due to telekinesis. but a steady hand, and some machines with precise measurements, and this procedure will only be mildly excruciating. and a couple of those relics and curios will help, too! so there's that version or chekov's gun squared away.
  1326. > "it will all be worth it. I know it will. I will be good enough, magical enough. my "friends" will see me as being just like them, instead of some creature to study. I'll finally be good enough for them. I'll endure any pain to feel that."

  1344. > step one: replace the feet bones with identicals made from earth-pony hooves. magical scans and reconstitution spells from our deals with shady unicorns have given us these.
  1345. > step two: use a specific solution at a specific heat in order to safely bend the already magically shrunken pegasi wing bones. insert them between radius and ulna; textbooks say that if they still have magic in them, (and they should, as they don't lose it for a couple more months,), the bones will automatically bond to new flesh over time. arm movement will be a lot more painful from now on, but it will be worth it. as for the feathers, simply lay them between different major muscles in the hand. they will dissolve into the flesh itself once the wing bones set in.
  1346. > step three: grind the horns into a coarse powder, and mix with an ambrosia of fluids from magical origins. inject this liquid into the spongy bone marrow of our skull. multiple injection points are marked accordingly. the viscous solution will have parts of it be absorbed into the marrow itself, and what's leftover will harden into a second lattice interwoven around and between the spongy bone marrow.
  1347. > finalization: drink the mixture prepared by the instructions found in that zebra's book, and then blast the body with magical energy by cracking the crystals in multiple magical artifacts. the energy should wash over us.

  1379. I'd imagine Castell would eventually push himself beyond his limit and become one of the most talented and effective endurance runners in Equestria, his speed rivaling that of his mother.
  1380. Maybe with a bit of Zecora's involvement, he could even have his own equivalent of a sonic rainboom? Although not as flashy, of course, but something to keep him dashing, something like Usain Bolt? Or maybe faster if he has access to any form of magic, even if extremely limited...

  1413. Castell, the athlete has a difficult time with momma Dash. I've always taken dash as an Anaerobic type of athlete, what with pure speed and nothing behind those eyes except for premium air. meanwhile, Castell is all about either endurance or skill/performance. he shares the skill/performance part, but he excels sports that will wear down the clock, so he can outlast enemies. he excels at it, but he's not happy with it. he wants to be like his momma, and finish games with a glorious Blitzkrieg!!
  1414. despite his amazing capabilities and an actual propensity to train unlike his mother, Castell still manages to not be as strong as other versions of himself, due to his quick temper and eagerness to fight. he's not nearly as calculating as others.
  1415. and as far as magic goes, there's always the memory pieces. they give him more than just memories, you know. they give him a power to rival magic users. however, I only ever see Castell finding one and calling it quits, due to his lack of thinking on the memories he will have inherited. he'll likely just get the minor enhancement boost one.
  1416. as for MALVA, the Absurd, I REALLY wished I could incorporate more of that 2005 Willy Wonka vibes, but I couldn't do it as well as I wanted. he can play every instrument though, and he comes up with wacky treat ideas with pinkie pie.
  1417.  
  1418. those others? I'm glad they made you feel something. I really liked flurry's because i always knew there was a lot of room to appeal to the oedipal complex deep within me. but one of my favorite off-shoots has to be AppleJack's story. oh God, that's a good one. you really understand just how TRULY DEDICATED this boy is to the pony he loves.

  1422. he doesn't look all that different, his necromancy is MOSTLY internal, but that's a very big mostly. his eyes will look a little bit sullen back into his sockets, and his skin gets paler. his previously well-toned body grows gaunt as his body tries to wrestle itself over what the fuck it's supposed to do with this magic. it's practically digesting itself.

  1558. Well, lets just hope that Twilight grows a backbone for once and decides not to put a child into a fate worse then death. Surely Celestia isn't the only one she could turn to.
  1559.  
  1560. >if this sounds very similar to Tirek,
  1561. Maybe Twilight can get Tirek to lend some advice? I'm sure she could offer a bed or something in return. He does seem to be the expert on magic absorption, after all and maybe his foreign knowledge would give him ideas that Twilight couldn't think of.
  1562.

  1582. all I will say that I was surprised what I did with Twilight, given her.... track record in previous timelines, especially the main (CMC) timeline.
  1583. > Tirek
  1584. I think this takes place before Tirek. otherwise, Twilight would be too far indoctrinated into Celestia's hullabaloo.
  1585. I might be able to add Tirek later, should Tena survive this ordeal. if not, then oh well. there's always the ability to add another timeline, right? I will admit it's an interesting battle dynamic to play with, two hunger-based builds?
  1586. > Celestia is a psycho
  1587. sister,
  1588. you don't know the HALF of it.
  1589. I might even get around to telling you the half of it in the next chapter.
  1590. > what makes Vitrification inabsorbable?
  1591. many things, but the main thing is that it isn't a spell that is cast from a user; it's a RITUAL spell, something only seen in ancient history. it would be like bringing Balearic Slingers to a battle in the 1800's. but just as the skill behind a slinger would find it's niche, so too would Ritual magic, too. let me explain:
  1592.  
  1593. standard casting magic relies on a users own mana pool and conceptual grasp of the spell itself, as well as training with the spell. and from that, the magic come from the user and is shot out at a target. if that target is Tena, he can absorb it.
  1594.  
  1595. Ritual magic uses what you think it would: runes, salt circles or the like, occasional minor sacrifices such as rare herbs, minerals, or treasures, and an chanted phrase that allows it to work. like a satanic summoning, without the necessity for blood or evil. ritual spells don't necessarily require the users' mana, as they usually draw magic from all life around the area, including the caster and the target. it draws from the planet itself, essentially, and the life in it. the closer any living or magical thing is to the ritual, the more magic it contributes. so anything Tena absorbs from the Ritual spell will just go back to the spell itself, since it would still be drawing from him, too.
  1596.

  1603. it marks an interesting memetic quandary for Twilight: she was practically raised by Celestia, and thus raised her whole life to believe that she is a goddess and that everything she does is good at best and right at worst. it's all for the greater good of harmony, and if you disagree with Celestia, then you're either a shortsighted fool or a wicked monster.
  1604. however, Twilight raised Tena herself. she believes that he's a well-meaning boy deep down, and she also knows full-well that these violent results are all because of her poor parenting, and her failure to demonstrate her love to him.
  1605. it's not entirely Tena's fault, and Twilight wants to fix it. but God herself gave her specific instructions to kill him.
  1606. is her morality based on a religious dedication to a deity she only thinks has perfect ideals? or is it based on her personal experiences in the real world with her friends and society around her?
  1607.  
  1608. I like how this unique conflict is different from Tena's, yet directly interacts with it at the same time.
  1609. Tena, despite all the power he has now, feels like a joke. he thinks everybody has always viewed him like a zoo animal, and he craves the familial love that her friends share with their siblings, mothers, and even other friends. sure, twilight cares for him as a creature, but he is never certain if she cares about him as an individual, since she's always just studying him. but now that Twilight is trying to show that love to him, is it real? after all this time? or is she just scared of the power he now has? will he ever feel love or feel like an equal?

  1687. before I continue, I'll say one thing about casting magic: since casted magic comes from the user, it is powered by their feelings. normally either friendship and harmony, or the desire to protect friends. positive at best, desperate at worst. the stronger the feeling, the stronger the spell.
  1688. > negative emotions open the door to uncanny magics, like dark magic or vengeful magic. dark magic requires malicious thoughts. it helps if the caster actually enjoys the suffering of others, or at the very least doesn't care about others and views others as tools rather than individuals. think Sombra.
  1689. > vengeful magic is based on anger. throughout all of human or pony history, anger has never been good or evil. it is only a tool that tells us when we think the world is wrong, and somebody needs to do something. anger is neutral. only the users of anger can be good or evil. but it's because of this neutral nature that it's extremely volatile and powerful. think Nightmare Moon or Daybreaker.

  1833. Poor Twilight. At least Celestia finally got a beatdown for once. Hopefully it won't be the last. I suppose you can continue the timeline by Twilight figuring out what the reset thing is and doing something about it. Maybe Luna's reaction to this whole mess as well.

  1844. it's funny, because in MOST stories when Celestia gets involved, Celestia just straight up wins.
  1845. as far as the reset goes, if there's no Celestia, then there's no reset. she performs it manually at the temple of the two sisters. it's all in an attempt to make her perfect world with her perfect story, in her own perfect little way.
  1846. what's that? Twilight died as a child due to balls cancer? oh well. just accelerate time with the ritual spell at the altar, and she'll make it so that she never had cancer in the first place.
  1847. huh? Nightmare Moon never reformed? Tia knows what to do. reset, and change little things until it works.
  1848. even small things, like the personality of Applejack or her own public reputation can be fiddled with in such an easy way, when you finally have a GOOD use for immortality.
  1849. Celestia is more than a thousand years old. she's been that thousand countless times.

  1974. if you say so??
  1975. Charlotte is from my stories BEFORE I decided to put Wally in Equestria.
  1976. in a world more human, Charlotte and Wally are homeless orphans who only have each other because the rest of the world seemingly hates them for existing. they really treat them like shit.
  1977. Charlotte and Wally consider each other siblings, and together they have LITERALLY NOTHING, save the tattered clothes on their backs. they lie and steal just to survive, and they can barely do that.
  1978. however, Charlotte is clearly the brains of the two. she's clever, cunning, manipulative, a great liar, and can weasel herself out of just about any bad situation. but her manipulative nature extends to her treatment of Wally. she exploits him, he does her dirty work, and she throws him under the bus constantly. but the rest of human society treats them much worse, so Wally being the big dumb kid he is believes that Charlotte is the only nice person on earth.
  1979. Charlotte knows how to play innocent, she knows how to play dumb and she knows how to play smart. she's already in your head, trying to take something from you, or maybe she just wants to hurt you to get a laugh in. she believes that the poisonous world who hates her should be hurt back. she says that you only get what you take, and you only keep what you fight for. she's the kind of person to be your best friend for seventy years only to stab you in the back the moment she can finally take what she says is now wrongfully hers.
  1980. and Wally is the codependent crybaby who's along for the ride
  1981. that is, until he fails to protect his sister from an attack. there's a lot more to it than that, but that's the simple version. Wally blames himself for his failure and blames the poisonous society of people around him for allowing this to happen and for killing the "last good person in a world of hate." he dedicated his existence to three things, forming the WORLD plan:
  1982. > becoming immortal
  1983. > punishing the world that hurt him and his sister
  1984. > finding out how to reset the world and reshape it to be the perfect world that "his sister would have deserved," preferably by adding her back into his new timeline.
  1985. when Wally succeeds in erasing the first timeline, he is flung into the vast annals of timelines and existences, one of them being Equestria, because I needed SOME way to further my autism. from there, it's the storm king's attack or the Sisters' charge from ancient times that revert him back to an amnesiac baby.
  1986.  
  1987. summarizing this all makes it sound kinda gay, but oh well.

  1991. Saying that the human who ends up in Equestria has the same capacity for ‘resetting’ the timeline as Celestia is a very interesting connection, especially when you’ve already said the timelines will have some sort of payoff. Makes me wonder if Charlotte will still play a role in other Equestrian timelines….

  2001. who, Charlotte?
  2002. oh nah, no no no no.
  2003. Charlotte is dead. VERY dead. and since she died in the original timeline, there's no getting her back. however, her impact stays with Our Boy Wally forever, even when he lacks the memories to realize it. usually for the worse. if Wally were to ever get Charlotte back, then his entire character arc would be IMMEDIATELY DONE, and the cautionary tale that his journey is supposed to shove into the readers' face would be forfeit.
  2004. ANYWAYS, I suddenly have a lot more time on my hands, and I just finished studying Cozy Glow, so Kaiser's story is just around the corner!!

  2015. COZY GLOW STORY
  2016. A pet named Kaiser
  2017. > this story starts so close to the end of FiM that I'm not sure what I can do with it, but oh well!
  2018. > Cozy Glow, about to enter the new school of friendship.
  2019. > since she's a Pegasus, I'm assuming she's from Cloudsdale. a commute from Fillydelphia would be quite the distance traveled.
  2020. > now Cozy, I have no doubt in my mind that she probably doesn't rely on her parents that much, if she even still has any at all. she's a very smart, resourceful, and over all independent filly. unless you fellas have an idea behind Cozy Glow's potential parents, I've elected to keep them out of this. Cozy Glow lives on her own.
  2021. > thanks to a school of friendship opening up to all creatures, there's quite the Exodus of many creatures from many lands. ponyville is very loud, and due to the plethora of new and exotic mouths to feed, ponyville also smells like a hot Bella Sandvich (with Swiss and Spinach. no tomato, because you just dip the Sandwich in the Tomato Basil Soup, which you can also smell.)
  2022. > at this point, travelers and tourists alike will be able to smell ponyville LONG before they can even see the town approaching on the horizon.
  2023. > Golly, that's quite a strong smell of food! I sure do hope it doesn't attract any monsters or anything!
  2024. > yeah, that's how our boy shows up. with a vast variety of creatures mulling about the town square and the bazaar, the young boy walks around with no suspicions, nary a passing glance.
  2025. > that is, until he just takes some food and bolts with it
  2026. > Cozy Glow is in ponyville at the time, hears the commotion, and stops the boy.
  2027. (btw, to you and I, our boy is gonna look a little bit younger than however old Cozy Glow is. so if I guess that she's twelve, then maybe he's seven-ish? the numbers don't matter, you know. just younger than what you think Cozy Glow is.)
  2028. > so Cozy stops the boy, the shopkeeps thank Cozy Glow and start berating the boy
  2029. > Cozy plays her whole schtick, "Now I'm sure he had a reason, if we could just hear the poor guy out? we should show patience"- yeah you get it already.
  2030. > hear him out, huh?
  2031. > they try, but they just can't, on the account that he can't speak. in fact, he can't even understand what they're asking or telling him, despite him understanding the emotional tone behind their voices being anger.
  2032. > Cozy says that this animal didn't know any better, and everybody should be more merciful to this strange new animal. he was simply surviving the way nature made him to do, right?
  2033. > the shopkeeps huff in annoyance, but they quickly fuck off. the last one warns, however, that if he finds that animal stealing food again, he has every right to not be so merciful anymore.

  2039. we keep going. that school isn't gonna conquer itself, you know!
  2040. > . . . .
  2041. > the ability to tame a wild animal? it might just earn her some more friends at the school. and worst-case scenario she hears that this school has an animal caretaker, so she can just chalk it up to "oh golly, I just can't give this animal the life it deserves, please take it from me! I don't want to burden it with my sloppy caretaking!"
  2042. > low risk, high reward. easiest deal ever.
  2043. > but first, she has to figure out what the deal is with this animal. doesn't look like anything she knows about
  2044. oh my God, notto disu shitto agen. we go through this song-n'-dance with EVERY timeline. I get it, it's an obstacle that has to be tackled due to the Boy's "only one of his kind" nature, but it makes me feel dumb when I can't think of any more creative way to play this out. but how else can I play this game when EVERYBODY in Ponyville knows that Fluttershy is RIGHT THERE?
  2045. > WHATEVER. Cozy Glow knows that a school full of smart teachers is a great place to ask, even if school isn't for another week. they'll still be there, probably setting up for the opening.
  2046. > "let's get going, little white monkey thing! we have some new friends to make!"
  2047. > one gentle tug from her is all the boy needs to understand that the nice little pink pegasus who saved his bacon wants him to follow. so follow he does.
  2048. > Cozy Glow realizes she needs to name this thing before somepony else gets first dibs
  2049. > she calls him Kaiser.
  2050. I still thing August (from Augustus) would have been better, but hey, I DID ask. Kaiser it is.
  2051. > they make one small stop to do a small bit of training, teaching him names. it's a cute little exchange, teaching him "Cozy Glow" and "Kaiser"
  2052. > they get to the doors of the School
  2053. > knock knock motherfuckers. it's Princess Celestia.
  2054. > oh wait, no it's not. it's just some pink pegasus child with a white monkey thing en-tow. looks like murder's not on the breakfast menu, boyo.
  2055. > let's get it out of the way, dash answers the door, she takes the two of them to Fluttershy, she says she doesn't know this creature, take it to Twilight for the same results but with more books involved, you know the drill.
  2056. > but this time, Fluttershy knows that raising a potentially brand new species of ape is not a job for just some filly. she says she should take care of him, and she holds out her hooves to accept him.
  2057. > Cozy can't lose Kaiser just yet! the sunk-cost fallacy simply won't allow it, especially on such promising returns!
  2058. > just as Kaiser is about to start walking right into the loving hooves of this kind yellow mare who seems to mean him well, Cozy quickly chimes in, saying that Kaiser is just SoOoOo imprinted on her already, that it would be wrong to force him off of her without giving her a chance, right?
  2059. alrighty boys, do we give Kaiser to Cozy Glow now, or is it okay to wait a little while before Cozy can really keep him?

  2072. Let Golly keep him. It would take a lot to convince Flutters to let her do it, which would make her all the more impressive for pulling it off.

  2098. look, I've tried. I really did. but there's really no way that Golly keeps him first without outing herself as suspicious. and need I remind you, her innocent appearance is her most valuable tool.
  2099. golly will get him very soon, but for now, I think she needs to relent.

  2106. going out on a limb here. let's be patient, y'all. just like Cozy Glow.
  2107. > Cozy Glow tries to make her case, but all of these teachers seem to think Fluttershy is the best answer to this problem.
  2108. > Cozy knows to fold to avoid looking too desperate. but she has a plan to get him back. a simple and obvious plan, but it's still the most solid option.
  2109. > Cozy leaves Kaiser in the keeping of Fluttershy, but she comes by EVERY day, asking how he's doing, asking what Fluttershy does for him, etc.
  2110. > when Cozy "'Leaves'" Fluttershy's sanctuary, she secretly sets up different types of tricks to make Kaiser's life with Fluttershy just that much harder.
  2111. > taking his food when he's not looking could look like he's not eating due to stress. or maybe he'll end up seeing another animal eating his food and get into a fight. or maybe he gets too hungry and tries to make good on his apex predator name?
  2112. > at night, pester Kaiser with some way to only wake him up. maybe he'll get poor sleep and be ornery? or maybe him waking up with such a fright would cause a bit of noise, waking up the entire sanctuary?
  2113. > lastly, whenever she wants to get a little more creative, she'll sneakily take another animal's food and just as sneakily add it to Kaiser's food pile. whoever's breakfast that was is about to be VERY pissed that Kaiser stole from them, and bonus: Fluttershy will chastise Kaiser for something he didn't even know he did, leaving him to associate Fluttershy with just randomly punishing him. Kaiser will never feel comfortable in Fluttershy's care.
  2114. > now from HER perspective, Fluttershy simply can't be having some creature this unruly, intentional or not. refusing to eat his food, sometimes stealing food from others instead, causing fights, waking everybody up; worst part is that Kaiser doesn't trust Fluttershy to help him, so he stays stressed and unfixable.
  2115. > but Cozy is there EVERY DAY.
  2116. > Every day, Cozy brings food, and Kaiser eats it.
  2117. > Every day, an exhausted Kaiser naps next to Cozy Glow.
  2118. > every day, Kaiser simply being around Cozy seems to just make all of his stress disappear.
  2119. > every time Cozy is around, Kaiser just acts like an innocent angel.
  2120. > hell, even if Kaiser is being unruly or fighting, he listens to Cozy Glow when she tells him to stop.
  2121. > the plan was supposed to last the entire week, but after only four or five days Fluttershy decides that Kaiser is much happier with Cozy Glow. and Cozy, asking all of those questions earlier about how she takes care of him has convinced Fluttershy that Cozy is perfectly capable of handling him. after all, a part of her job is knowing when an animal would be happier someplace else.
  2122. > looks like being small works well with being sneaky
  2123. only a couple of days (in the story) until friendship school starts, that's when things will get popping
  2124. will Cozy be able to take Kaiser to school?
  2125. will Ash be able to defeat the gym leader?

  2183. > so, Fluttershy allows Cozy Glow to take Kaiser off of her hands, under the strict order that she will be allowed to come over and check on him constantly, to make sure Golly is taking good care of him.

  2202. > so, classes pause, there's this whole ordeal of everybody looking for him, and when the student six FINALLY check the library, he's there, hiding from all the chaos.
  2203. > Kaiser, being a scared little four-year-old, will NOT be touched by these students. 2spooki4me
  2204. > but when Cozy Glow shows up, Kaiser cries and hugs her leg, while the student six are watching. this is an important moment, because it allows the Student six to really believe that Cozy Glow has a heart of gold and a soul of silver.

  2268. the plot thickens, as we keep going:
  2269. > Cozy Glow comforts Kaiser, and it looks like a heartfelt moment, until headmare twilight shows her long face.
  2270. > Cozy knows EXACTLY what she's going to say, and she knows EXACTLY how to play her part.
  2271. > Twilight is disappointed with how poorly trained Kaiser is and the small bit of mayhem he caused. she doesn't like doing this, but she can't have him at the school.
  2272. > Cozy Glow puts on her face of panic mixed with "on the verge of tears," and stammers how he's usually so much better behaved than this, and that it's not Kaiser's fault that he's uncomfortable around Fluttershy. mix in a couple of "he'll be so lost and depressed if he's just locked up at home!" and "please give him another chance, miss Twilight! he didn't mean to do any harm!"
  2273. > wait, he's uncomfortable around Fluttershy? that doesn't sound right.
  2274. > but sure enough, Fluttershy comes from behind (kek) and says that Kaiser just didn't like being around her noisy and stressful sanctuary, so it makes sense that this animal would associate a poor lifestyle with the pony in charge. she promises to take better care of the sanctuary, blah blah, but the point is made abundantly clear; the animal expert is telling twilight that Kaiser just needs a quiet place to stay, and he SHOULD be fine. he deserves another chance.
  2275. > welp, if Fluttershy says so, right? she's the defacto authority on the topic.
  2276. > Twilight comes to an agreement that Kaiser can stay in the garden out back if he can behave himself. but she can't give any third chances in an environment where any spurned chances will harm other students.
  2277. > "of course!! thank you so much, princess!! Kaiser will be such a gooOOood boy, won't you??"
  2278. > (pheh, this is TOO EASY. although, a bit too close, too. I'll have to either train him better or keep him on a tighter leash.)
  2279. > Cozy Glow doesn't take Kaiser to school for a couple of days after that, electing to take her former idea of training him. books from twilight and pointers from Fluttershy are all she needs, right?
  2280. > oh good goddesses, how right she is. this creature was THIRSTY for some training. everything she tries to teach him, he learns in maybe 20~40 minutes, tops.
  2281. > Kaiser becomes the perfect obedient pet in less than a week. it's so damn fast in fact, that Cozy Glow is impressed and decides that maybe she can do SO MUCH MORE with this pet than just getting some easy friends.
  2282. > as stated earlier, it doesn't even take a week until Cozy Glow is confident with leaving Kaiser in the school garden while she's taking classes.
  2283. > Twilight is thoroughly surprised, and even Flutters is rather impressed at just how well-trained Kaiser is.
  2284. > he's so well-trained, in fact, that Twilight relents and allows him to roam the halls, and even enter classrooms on occasion. so long as it's not Fluttershy's classroom.

  2331. > as expected, this is very quick. it only takes about two weeks.

  2333. > if headmare twilight can see how good of a teacher she is, maybe she'll be promoted to being a teacher herself? one more step up the ladder, right?
  2334. > so, let's fast forward to the end of those two weeks. Kaiser now has a firm grasp on language, as good of a grasp as a first grader would in our world. he can't read though.
  2335. > now's Cozy's moment to reveal her genius, so she encouraged Kaiser to make a friend at school and talk to him/her.
  2336. > the only other students he's ever comfortable around are the student six.
  2337. > Kaiser is just big chilling in the garden with his four year old looking yee-yee ass haircut, waiting for one of the student six to stop by so he can do what Cozy Glow told him to do.
  2338. I actually had to pull out one of those spinny wheels online to pick which of the six got to him. thank God it wasn't Smoulder or Gallus, because that would be kinda awkward.
  2339. it landed on Ocellus, who usually comes to the garden to play games with Kaiser, shape shifting to make him laugh.
  2340. > Ocellus comes to play, and they do play a bit. but before Ocellus leaves, Kaiser finally raises his scared voice, and asks Ocellus to be his friend
  2341. > there's a heartwarming moment of Ocellus accepting and hugging and saying all of the students consider him a friend
  2342. > but Ocellus ain't Stoopid neither. she now knows full-stop that Kaiser is smart enough to comprehend language, and more importantly, be considered fully sapient.
  2343. > there's this whole.... thing that happens with Ocellus dragging him to one of the classrooms with some of the other six, and she tries to get him to talk, but he's very spooked by her sudden enthusiasm and clams up, you know. it could be its own episode.
  2344. > but at the end of that episode, one of them (def. Smoulder) trusts Ocellus to be telling the truth, comes to talk to Kaiser alone, and Kaiser asks to be friends, proving that Ocellus wasn't lying. lesson of the day is trusting friends, blah blah. same song n' dance you've heard the tune before.
  2345. > but now, the student six know that he's sapient. and then, the rest of the school knows. then, the teachers. then headmare/Princess Twilight Sparkle, current sovereign over Equestria.
  2346. > now there's going to be this whole ordeal about citizenship and personhood and nobody wants to sit through THAT act of Congress.
  2347. > luckily for you, I can make that long story short

  2353. Interesting to see other students interact with Kaiser. It was only a matter of time before everyone realized he's not an animal. Imagine the awkward moment when Twilight figured out that she was letting a child raise a baby. Odd that they actually let Cozy be his guardian. Must have taken a lot of convincing from her end. I mean, at least Twilight still lived with her parents.

  2385. they probably just think he's a monster from the everfree, or some kind of one-of-a-kind creature like Tirek. you don't see any other creatures like Tirek, maybe this creature is the same? all cozy Glow knows is that she found him in the ponyville market square, and that's all anybody knows.
  2386.  
  2387. as for the mane six, they're already up to their necks in work, having to juggle between their previous lives and also being a min-wage teacher at friendship school, and that's not even mentioning Twilight's new princess duties as the SOLE ruler of the largest Equis political superpower, so as neat as his presence is it's not exactly an intrigue they have the time to explore.

  2395. By the way, what's the bump limit here?
  2396. >>40935419
  2397. the plot thickens, as we keep going:
  2398. > so now, Kaiser needs to be schooled.
  2399. > oh wowie! look! a perfectly good school, right there! I'm sure it teaches more than just friendship, for the sake of narrative brevity of course! three cheers for creative license!
  2400. > Kaiser loves being at school, but is uncomfortable under everybody's unscrupulous gazes, as if he were some novelty or attraction, rather than an individual.
  2401. > the reason he feels this way is because Golly told him how much she wishes those insensitive meanies would see her precious brother/son as a friend instead of a pet.
  2402. > Kaiser, being true to his codependent legacy, takes the statement at face value. but since his "big sister" Cozy Glow is fine, he just bottles up his stress.
  2403. > at school, he's only ever comfortable if Cozy Glow is nearby, and he's only almost comfortable around the student six, since they were already on good terms with both he and Golly.
  2404. okay, I have two ways this story can roll out, and I'm indecisive:
  2405. either we take my initial approach of Cozy Glow using Kaiser as nothing but a pawn in her schemes,
  2406. or
  2407. we take the appeal route where parenthood softens Cozy Glow's cold dead heart.
  2408.  
  2409. I'd much prefer the former, but there wouldn't be all that much new involved in the story of Cozy Glow's scheme to seize power.
  2410. the latter has more prominent changes, but would be much shorter, less interesting, and in my opinion it kind of neglects what makes Golly such an appealing character.
  2411.  
  2412. do y'all have any ideas?

  2481. okay, it was hard to write, but I believe I got something okay:
  2482.  
  2483. Anyways, LAST TIME ON DRAGON BALL Z:
  2484. AND IN THIS EPISODE, APPLEJACK GIVES SLOPPY TO A YAK BEHIND A 7-ELEVEN ON A TUESDAY AT 3:28am, SO STAY TUNED!!
  2485. > so Kaiser is learning at the school of friendship, and Cozy Glow is fucking around in those hallowed halls as well.
  2486. > as we all know, Kaiser is a very fast learner. but his learning speed seems to taper off around where Cozy Glow is.
  2487. > now, there's this whole thing in the school of friendship about student helpers. the teachers have VERY busy lives, and friendship is about helping others, after all, right? so there's this big push to allow students to help teachers. those who volunteer are given small benefits, and if you're consistently helping a certain teacher you can essentially be assigned as that teachers' executive helper for further benefits. benefits range from extra time on projects, private tutoring, the ability to use your notes during tests, etc. but being an executive helper means you get to sit in on meetings and help make decisions to help the school.... so long as you're not a dumbass, that is.
  2488. > now that.... that smells like POWER....
  2489. > Cozy recognizes this as the next step to getting the school, and in her inner monologues, the audience is revealed that she wants the school of friendship under her control, so that she can rear these students up in a way that would give her more power. if she controls what they believe, then essentially they work for her cause for free. and all of the friends she would gain would get her more power.
  2490. > it would be her wet dream come true, if it didn't make me feel weird, saying that about a young filly. but you get the point.
  2491. > the goal is simple, because simple plans are better: become helpers for each of the teachers to be really good at it. then we become the best helper to headmare twilight, due to our unrivaled experience. then we will have plenty of power, and when twilight inevitably needs to leave the school in the hooves of another due to her busy duties as princess, who better to take that role than us? we won't even need a resume. despot favoritism strikes again!!
  2492. > but all she tells Kaiser is that "we both desperately NEED those benefits in order to succeed in this school! both you and I! and wouldn't you also like to help all those busy teachers, working so hard just to give us a chance at a better life? and it would be so ungrateful of us if we failed to capitalize on that gracious opportunity they generously gifted to us! oh lil' bro, won't you help me be the best helper I can be?? (innocent eyelash blinks)
  2493. > Kaiser is a naive little gummy bear, so he helps his sister/momma with whatever she needs.
  2494. > and thus, the first REAL arc of their dynamic begins, as they work to appease the teachers and compete with other students to land that executive helper role. there are other episodes, but the story will continue!

  2506. LAST TIME ON YU-GI-OH, THIS HAPPENED:
  2507. AND IN THIS ACTION-PACKED EPISODE, PRINCE BLUEBLOOD RIFLES THROUGH AN ENTIRE YEAR'S WORTH OF CHEMOTHERAPY IN SEVENTEEN SECONDS! STAY TUNED!!
  2508. > so many episodes can be made with them trying to help the teachers and outperform their classmates, with a healthy sprinkling of Golly's underhanded tactics, and even a good few episodes can be made without the school at all!
  2509. > such as a couple of episodes where they interact with the CMC, a couple where they interact with the student six outside of school, a couple with Kaiser struggling to adapt to a pony's society, maybe one where Kaiser tries to show Golly how much she means to him, but Golly is too busy doing either this or that to notice or care?
  2510. > Kaiser IS just a creature from the forest after all. maybe he drags a killed cockatrice to her doorstep, like how cats bring home dead birds and chipmunks to their owners as an offering?
  2511. > of course, there's plenty of opportunities for them to take the B-Plot of an episode, and let Golly's schemes take the backburner in the audience's minds in order to slowly build up tension.
  2512. > but as far as major footnotes go, it's mostly just them competing with other students for that executive helper role. I'd imagine it being very difficult with the student six also vigorously vying for various vacant vocations.
  2513. > I'd imagine a good number of them outperformed our dynamic duo, such as Silverstream or Ocellus. but that's no matter. a little bit of trickery does the heart good; from making their duties difficult and convincing them that the position isn't worth the trouble, to undermining their efforts to make them appear as a poor helper, that'll be all it takes for resignations or demotions. those positions are as good as ours.
  2514. > of course, Golly has to sugar coat these actions to Kaiser, convince that naive little gummy bear that this is for the best, and so is keeping the secret.
  2515. > "you know we can do a better job as helpers than she can! these teachers deserve the very best, and that's the both of us! besides, she's a sharp student. she won't need those benefits as much as WE need them, right? golly, I sure know that I'll need them!"
  2516. > "I'm sorry, I know it looks wrong. but I did this to give YOU those benefits! you need them more!"
  2517. > "tell? but if you tell, then they won't want to be your friend anymore! they wouldn't understand that our intentions were pure! it's best to keep this under the rug, as to not hurt anybody, much less you. I don't want to see you hurt, best friend!"
  2518. > and Kaiser being the gullible, impressionable child he is, he follows her "advice."
  2519. > it's only a matter of time until all of the executive helper positions are theirs.
  2520. > oh lookie! all of the executive helper positions are theirs! all six (including Starlight), leaving only twilight without a helper.
  2521. but there's just one problem
  2522. what could it be?

  2544. LAST TIME, ON DRAGON BALL Z:
  2545. AND IN THIS EPISODE, SOMEBODY FARTED!
  2546. BUT WHO....?
  2547. > So, Cozy Glow is now the executive helper for the mane six, plus Starlight, minus Twilight. Kaiser is there too, because they're inseparable.
  2548. > however, when they get to listen in on meetings, there's one problem....
  2549. > Cozy don't have as much sway over the school's decisions as she had hoped.
  2550. > half of this is because this perk was meant to both give promising students a chance to learn about leadership, executive management skills, and decision making for larger organizations, AND let the students believe they had some say in how things are run. their power isn't as great as the teachers because honestly what school would allow students to make all of the big decisions? how long would that circus last, huh?
  2551. > the other half of why there's little to no power to Cozy is because she is currently holding ALL SIX HELPER POSITIONS SIMULTANEOUSLY, and compounding the power intended would leave her with more electoral power than two teachers combined, and that would upset the whole "Oligarchy with Equality" behind the school's processes. so Twilight made a little fix to make sure that helpers with more than one position would have diminishing returns on benefits granted.
  2552. > Cozy Glow?
  2553. > diagnosis: UNYIELDING RAGE.
  2554. > but for now, she just shuts up and sits through the meeting until she can plan properly.
  2555. > but the meeting includes something interesting.
  2556. > Twilight is very proud of Cozy for landing all of the helper positions, but she never expected students to have more than two, MAYBE three, at any given moment. six is just unprecedented.
  2557. > she wants to let other students have the chance to land executive helper decisions, but knows that Cozy worked hard for it. so she asks her if she has any ideas as to how to best go about this conundrum?
  2558. > (yeah, you can start by giving me the school, and then end with your limp body at the bottom of the ocean.)
  2559. > "oh twilight, but you don't have an executive helper, do you? maybe I could be your helper and leave room for others that way! -I mean, WE. Little ol' Kaiser wants to help you too!"
  2560. > now, twilight doesn't have a helper because she's always found it difficult to ask for help for one reason or another. and being an all-powerful Alicorn princess with enough magic under the hood to level a city gives her the perfect excuse to convince herself and most others around her that she doesn't need help, nor does she deserve it, and therefore doesn't want it.
  2561. > but twilight has grown over the many seasons. I'd be remiss to acknowledge that. so once REMINDED, she is eager to take a helper.
  2562. > conditions include more executive power, more school benefits, and for Kaiser, better food and a place to nap by a sunny window in the library, near one of the tables that students use
  2563. > okay, good! not where she wanted to be in terms of power, but at least it wasn't a waste of her time

  2576. I understand, but be patient.
  2577. if you don't mind me spoiling it,
  2578.  
  2579. my plan is to make the innocent Kaiser finally adopt Golly's worldview of "you only get what you take, and you only keep what you fight for." when that happens, golly will be having "battles" over dominance with Kaiser. both are now willing to throw each other in the dumpster the moment the other is of no use to them. but given how Kaiser will feel like his life and childhood was a lie and that he was never loved, he will be far more ruthless, at the cost of being more hasty and easy to get under his skin emotionally. golly TRULY doesn't care about emotions or whatnot, she never did from the start. so her methods might be superior due to how patient and calculating she is, unable to be roused.

  2588. AND TODAY, RARITY TRIES TO DODGE THE "WHO FARTED?" ALLEGATIONS
  2589. > So, Cozy and Kaiser are performing the ancient art of "fucking around," and they're helping Twilight and sometimes Starlight.
  2590. > but the lack of power progression is PALPABLE for our puny pink pegasus pony who is parched for prestige.
  2591. > Kaiser thinks he's living a happy life, but Cozy is quick to inform him that he is not "actually" happy, not yet at least.
  2592. > Kaiser, being the fucking dumbass he is, asks what he's supposed to do.
  2593. > Cozy uses the ancient technique passed down by her ancestors for generations: talking out of her ass and hoping it works
  2594. > tells him that happiness is friendship, and friendship is helping others. ergo, happiness is helping others. and SHE has a plan to help the entire greater Equestria. all she needs to do is control the school of friendship.
  2595. > "how is your control over a school any different from Twilight running it?"
  2596. > she explains how "oh, Twilight is supposed to be a princess! she has an entire nation to run, and the sun and moon to manage! and her friends had lives outside of the school before she coerced her friends into sacrificing every ounce of their free time to teach at a school for the rest of their lives. her friends deserve their old lives back, and Twilight needs to focus on running a nation. so who will run the school? I will, silly! oh, and maybe you can help, too! can I count on you to help your big sister however she needs it? good! thank you for helping me help you help me help us all!"
  2597. > that.... seemed to make sense..... until she discombobulated Kaiser at the end with all of that "helping."
  2598. > that being said, Kaiser is IN. he wants to help however he can.

  2634. Duh, I'm late. Or maybe not? A "first bell"("ominous sign") episode for Kaiser seems fitting in the near future. Something that is uncanny enough to draw others' attention but at the same time can be written off with just a tiny bit of mental gymnastics.
  2635. Say he unexpectedly takes initiative and greatly contributes to the disruption of Tirek's plan but in a way that some might find... inappropriate. or something else entirely idk just a thought from the top of my head

  2640. I like this.
  2641. I'm definitely going to make it due to Golly's fallible worldview.
  2642.  
  2643. say, do you remember the six relics in that summoning circle in that episode where she drains all of the magic?
  2644. what are those relics? are they of any further importance? do they have any magic or even history behind them?

  2654. Something that doesn't really get talked about is that, aside from the six artifacts being there to begin with for cultural purposes, the spell Golly uses to get those artifacts to drain all the magic in Equestria was actually taught in Twilight's class. Both Ocellus and Gallus recognize and name the spell, saying they were studying for their midterm.
  2655.  
  2656. One quick idea I want to give you if its not too late, is that in the episode "What Lies Beneath" the Student Six are tested by the Tree of Harmony, and the episode ends with Golly looking at the cave the students were in with interest. It'd be really interesting if the Tree of Harmony ended up giving Kaiser and/or Golly tests of their own...
  2657.  
  2658. Also yeah what >>40949429 said the artifacts have some sort of history behind them, the griffon artifact is literally just the crown of a previous king.

  2665. >I don't know where else interesting to take it
  2666. Kinda late, but here's an idea.
  2667.  
  2668. >Twilight is completely devastated after the incident with Tena and Celestia.
  2669. >Life moves on of couse, she cheers up somewhat and even endes up becoming an alicorn, but even years later that day just wouldn't leave her mind.
  2670. >She would constantly think about how things could have been different.
  2671. >If only she had been stronger.
  2672. >If only she wasn't so blindly loyal to Celestia.
  2673. >If only she hadn't treated her son so poorly...
  2674. >And during her moments of reminiscing, one thing would always haunt Twilight. Her mentor's words.
  2675. >What did she mean by "reset"? Why did she talk and act as if she had already seen so much of this before?
  2676. >Twilight would ponder on those words as the years came and went by. And eventually, she'd have had enough, and would decide to investigate.
  2677. >Every nook and cranny of Equestria searched, all in order to figure out what the hell her teacher was talking about.
  2678. >Eventually all of her friends died of natural causes, leaving Twilight with ample time to dedicate to her search.
  2679. >She would get her answers. After studying dream and mind magic under Luna for years, she'd use it to access Daybreaker's mind, still in the Sun.
  2680. >Normally, Celestia's mind would just be too durable to be entered, even by her sister, but a combination of the highly emotional transformation that is Daybreaker and being in a pseudo-coma due to her banishment would allow for such a feat to be possible.
  2681. >In there, Twilight came to learn of the resets. How many there were, what they were like... how they functioned.
  2682. >In front of that forgotten castle, Twilight decides on what she wants... no, HAS to do.
  2683. >And so, like teacher like student, Twilight performs the ritual in the Castle of Two Sisters and resets reality.
  2684. And now I'm the one who's not sure where to follow this with. We simply don't know enough about the mechanisms of Celestia's resets for me to confidently write anything. Like, how does Celestia retain her memories once she resets? That sort of thing that, depending on the answer, could make Twilight's plan completely pointless

  2691. the tree seems to be able read your person and thoughts, and warp reality or at least one's perception of it in order to challenge the trial-goers.
  2692. I wonder if the tree will read Kaiser as the mentality he is now, or Wollævir as the body he was before? lots of juicy ideas here.

Golly was the best part of both seasons and even I didn’t fully appreciate her untill she had Tirek and Chrysalis to bounce off of. Which season was the one about how applejacks dead parents got together again? That episode was the best the show had been in years.

  2717.  
  2718. to answer your questions about resets, here's what I have to say:
  2719.  
  2720.  
  2721. > Celestia, in the timeline FAR before our little boy showed up and split them, was just as immortal.
  2722. > there was only one timeline, and she was on it.
  2723. > similar things happen. Nightmare Moon, banished to the moon, and she needed to find some way of saving her sister.
  2724. > initially, she tries to groom a team in Canterlot that includes Moondancer, Lyra, and some other peeps.
  2725. > this glorious team of six super-capable ponies proceeds to get their TEETH ABSOLUTELY KICKED IN BY NIGHTMARE MOON.
  2726. > Celestia, unable to banish her a second time, has no choice but to kill her.
  2727. > this is tally number one.
  2728. > Celestia, now experiencing a phenomenon called "going thru a lot RN," neglects her duties as princess, so the people are dissatisfied with her rule and hate her.
  2729. > whether she relents now or tries to reign in her power, it's tally number two.
  2730. > conquering villains seize various parts of greater Equis. with no Cadenza or at least an experienced one with a husband to love, the crystal empire only reappears for about two weeks until Sombra just takes it.
  2731. > Chrysalis is eating up surrounding nations like a fat kid at a golden corral. nations like gryphonstone and such fall to hoards of spies secretly body-snatching foo's
  2732. > the Dragon Lord is preparing to war with any nation that crosses its borders
  2733. > Tirek essentially killed half of the population of the planet before Celestia absorbed the magic of living creatures to destroy him. the damage is irreversible, lives lost, and magic very low.
  2734. > discord was killed early, because Celestia new a bad pattern when she saw one.
  2735. > and storm king is on his way to take EVERYTHING.
  2736. > Yeah. that's gonna be tally #3
  2737. > Celestia sees a rotten world that doesn't deserve to continue. with the knowledge of starswirl from the past and the brightest magical minds of the present, she wants to find a way to travel back in time AND change it to fix the world.
  2738. > but they're on a time crunch, given the whole world is about to go to hell with war
  2739. > eventually, they find a band-aid solution.
  2740. > the only way to be able to change the timeline is if there was no future that relied upon the past for continuity. so, just erase everything and start over. they found that resetting in a certain way means that deterministic actions will result if not interfered with.
  2741. > well, it's not massacring an entire timeline if they're all just going to come back anyways, right?
  2742. > Celestia performs this ritual to reset the timeline. the old one is erased, and a new one is started with a seed identical to the former one. the only difference is that Celestia remains with all of her knowledge and immortality.
  2743. > every time something goes wrong and it all goes to shit, the only way to undo it is to start ALL over.
  2744. > reset after reset after reset.
  2745. > the only problem is that she can't reset if the boy is in the timeline. he's an anomaly

  2749. so yeah. Celestia has seen everything. she never predicted anything, she's just seen it before, probably a million times over too.
  2750. it gets so tiring. with this kind of power, and erasing so many worlds, she becomes disillusioned with the lives she's trying to better. it's no longer a world that needs saving. it's now devolved into an assignment. it's just what she's supposed to do, right? keep on going until everything is juuuuuuust right. Luna gets saved, wars are averted, etc.
  2751.  
  2752. but our boy collides with the timeline at some point, making it branch off radically. Celestia doesn't even know it. all she knows is that she can't reset the timeline anymore for some reason, and that's only if she decides to reset the timeline while he's alive.
  2753. (if he's dead, Sunbutt can reset.)

  2761. the concept of destiny is was and always will be a bleak and otherwise horrifying idea. the closest thing we have IRL is the concept of hard determinism.
  2762. even hard determinism has its edges over destiny. determinism is essentially just a string of dominoes falling. nobody is controlling you with intent, it's just things are gonna happen because that's how the formulas count them up to be. enjoy the ride.
  2763. but FATE and DESTINY are just awful to me. somebody else or some higher will has decided against what you would have done and instead decided that you live in THEIR world by THEIR rules. you're a pawn, only meant to sing and dance for their own story. what does this higher power get out of this? is it like a movie to them?

  2785. as for sunset, that depends;
  2786. you mean to keep sunset in Equestria? I was under the impression that half of the appeal of these stories was human in Equestria, so I have one that works with that as a base. but if you want Canterlot high school, then I'll have to start writing. which was it?

  2795. Interesting. A few questions if you're willing:
  2796. >Does the timeline reset take reality back to the very beginning (Big Bang or it's equivalent) or just to a specific point in it?
  2797. >Is Celestia limited to only affecting things that happened after her birth?
  2798. >Do her memories come to her when she's still a baby?
  2799. >If someone else were to reset the timeline instead of Celestia, would she remember the timeline in which that preceeded that reset?

  2806. • the timeline resets as far as you can think of, so to be generous I would say to the beginning of whatever planet the ponies live on. Equis? it feels weird referring to planets. but what she can change remains very limited until she is born, due to body shenanigans that I haven't ironed out.
  2807. • Celestia can alter ANYTHING, it's just there's not much to change until later on. after all, changes further in the past have stronger ramifications, so it's just more practical this way. not saying she hasn't, however. the Storm King's invasion has been stalled six ways from Sunday thanks to her chicanery.
  2808. • yes. from the moment she's born, her body inherits every memory she had before.
  2809. • I.... don't know.... that would make things very interesting. it would be an interesting mechanic to make it that she doesn't remember her last timeline because she was defeated, but slowly getting the sense of Deja-Voux. trying to figure out why Twilight is suddenly acting so radically different than she knows her to be.

  2814. Oh yeah something I forgot about but want to point out now is that the Tree of Harmony itself can do a lot as an autonomous independent spirit. Kinda nuts. I wonder if it approves of Celestia’s resetting shenanigans, since it’s all seeing Cuite Map was dragged alongside Twilight and Spike when Starlight used it to go back in time….

  2818. usually the timeline doesn't get that far without being reset. I would be surprised if it hadn't ever gotten that far.
  2819. but remember, the map travels to the SAME TIME in a different timeline, as far as I was told. so if you travel back when the map wasn't made yet, then the map isn't there. it won't be there in that timeline until when it showed up in the standard timeline.

  2880. now, the perk of being included in meetings will pay off, with Cozy-Glow's elaborate scheme.
  2881. > at the meeting, Cozy and Kaiser stand as Twilight and Starlight's executive helpers. there are other students representing the other five helpers.
  2882. > the Mane Seven talk about "Stuff n' Things" (TM) but Cozy has news for them, and especially for Twilight.
  2883. > her school is getting BORING. Twilight doesn't understand that because she's the only dweeb West of the Mississippi that actually LIKES studying. but real students just aren't like that.
  2884. > students need motivation. they need to enjoy what they're doing in order to put in their best effort.
  2885. > you want your students to be the best they can be, right Twilight?
  2886. > the Mane six agree that their lesson plans are quite bare-bone, and then even the students agree that they would be totally down for something to spice it up.
  2887. > Twilight immediately turns to Cozy for suggestions, since she's the one who brought it up.
  2888. > all cozy has to do now is point out the obvious:
  2889. > additionally, these new creatures are interacting with each other casually en-masse for the first time EVER. a lot of tension can build from that, and racial tension isn't something we can afford at a school of friendship.
  2890. > so, we tackle both of these problems simultaneously by taking all of the students on a FIELD TRIP to the other kingdoms to learn about the peoples and cultures of these new, exotic races, and we can even bring back relics of their culture that represent them in order to show how every race is important here, not just ponies.

  2923. LAST TIME ON DRAGON BALL Z
  2924. AND IN THIS EPISODE, I FINALLY GET MY SCHITT TOGETHER AND WRITE.
  2925. > there's only one problem with a globe-trotting field trip, and the responsible teachers like Appulz and Flittershoosh are quick to voice their concerns:
  2926. > most creatures are already moved very far away to be in the school, but taking them even further? to what's questionably the opposite side of the map to where their home is? good goddesses above, what would happen should one of their students get separated and lost in a foreign land on the opposite side of the map to where they live? no shape-form-or-fashion, we simply CAN'T afford to take such a risk, no matter HOW well-behaved our students are.
  2927. > the hassle of just getting permission to do this grand excursion would be dicey enough, let alone the worry that would be in the hearts of the parents.
  2928. > "I'm really sorry; it's a novel idea, Cozy Glow, it really is- and I'd love to see it happen. but as it stands right now, we can't make it happen."
  2929. > but then, it's Cozy Glow's final gambit:
  2930. > "but what if there were some way that all students could stay in-touch with each other from any distance? send letters in seconds, just like Spike can do?"
  2931. > there's pause. spike DOES do that, the letters only take a handful of seconds to deliver. the concept is there.
  2932. > "but spike had training to do that with a select handful of ponies. and even if we had enough unicorns for each group in order to keep messaging sent, there's no spell powerful enough to send messages to an individual that you don't know where they are, and the spell's effectiveness would compound in difficulty with the distance the message has to travel. it's just not possible." so says Spwilight Twarkle.
  2933. > but Stimmy Glimmy, who was self-taught with magic, is far less skeptical of this possibility.
  2934. > sure, no spells can accomplish this reliably, but there's all sorts of different magical forms, such as Relics, or Rituals. she would need to develop it from scratch, and employ the help of the most brilliant magical minds across generations in order to accomplish it, but if she did, this could solve FAR more than just a simple field trip. this could keep friends connected from across the world if pulled off!
  2935. so essentially magical email. or in this case, a magical fax machine, I guess. because season 8 wasn't america-coded enough. oh well, at least it makes for something fun to write.

  2957. the journal was a Relic. it is not a cast magic, nor is it readily available. but the concept would be similar.
  2958.  
  2959. as for EQG being canon or not, it's LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE for my stories to take place with them being canon. all it takes is either Celestia or Twilight to recognize this creature as vaguely humanoid just like the creatures from the other side of the mirror portal, and then they just send him there. every time. it's literally the most logical course of action. therefore, I had no choice but to remove it entirely.
  2960. besides, magic in EQG is few and far between, whereas in my stories, magic tends to be a very important power-equalizer. without magic, our boy need only find ONE memory fragment before his power advantage snowballs out of control. and if we remove the memory fragments, then we remove everything interesting about our boy, and he just becomes another run-of-the-mill human in barbieland. nothing that makes him integral to the story at all, which would seem to laugh at the whole appeal of ANY of the Wollævir variants, or just HiE in general.
  2961.

  3021. it would be more of a "spur-of-the-moment" thing, where either garble catches them up to something vile and Cozy knows she needs to do something or else it all goes to shit,
  3022.  
  3023. or maybe it was just some accident.
  3024. but the point is, nobody EVER finds out what happened. it's simply "somebody went missing, but it wasn't one of our students, so I guess it's not our jurisdiction." but either Cozy is walking on eggshells to try to keep Kaiser quiet, or Kaiser is grappling with what he either saw or accidentally did, and it might shape his character growth permanently.
  3025.  
  3026. I'm asking if you think death like this is okay with the mood of the stories. this is my little pony, after all. some people don't like murdering equestrians all that much.

  3077. LAST TIME ON DRAGON BALL Z:
  3078. AND IN THIS EPISODE, WE LEARN WHY I SPENT AN ENTIRE TANGENT ABOUT MAGICAL FAX MACHINES (I thought it was fun)
  3079. > so, the concept for keeping students connected is there. normally it would be somebody's JOB to figure out how to do this, and that's even assuming the entire council agrees upon it. however, BOTH Twilight and Glimmer are SO down to develop this idea that they simply promise to try to develop this magic anyways, field trip or not.
  3080. > at that point, the rest of them fellas at the meeting figure, "I guess?" and say They're down to approve the field trip if the communication method comes out smooth.
  3081. I don't know if I should use relics or Rituals. honestly, it doesn't matter, they're interchangeable, and if you don't like it one way you could EASILY imagine it the other way with minimal story-fanagling. I'm going to pick rituals, since I'd imagine making relics to be more difficult, ESPECIALLY making enough for an entire field trip's worth of students and staff and chaperones.
  3082. > meeting adjourned. Cozy goes home with giddiness in her heart. she knows that if this ritual spell comes out over-engineered like she knows it's going to be, it'll be easy as all hell to send letters to Tartarus.
  3083. > due to developing the Communications Ritual taking some time, there's room for some filler episodes, and maybe some small little bumpers where starlight and Glimmer talk about how magic works. I love that kind of exposition.
  3084. > the most important thing about this filler is that it allows time for Kaiser and Cozy to bond further. the stronger the bond, the more loyal he will be, right?
  3085. > maybe an episode where Kaiser gets into a lot of trouble that he has to now clean up, and Cozy comes to help him clean up. I wonder if she set that up?
  3086. > episodes where Cozy just so happens to have "sprained her wings by doing.... something, idfk," and she becomes reliant on Kaiser's help for a good while.
  3087. > but I had a GREAT idea for a B-plot of a filler episode; Cozy shows Kaiser a couple of Fillies arguing over a toy. while their backs are turned, Cozy steals the toy and hides back with Kaiser. Cozy lets Kaiser watch as the fillies start to work together to find the toy, and end up having more fun searching together than they did with the toy, and the fillies are happy. when the moment is finally passed and Kaiser expects Cozy to give the toy back now that the fillies are good friends again, Cozy instead smashes it into pieces, shocking Kaiser. Cozy tells him that what she did may have SEEMED cruel, but if he looks back at those fillies he will see that the result is kindness and friendship. it wouldn't be right to return the toy and risk having such a wonderful friendship be in jeopardy again, right?
  3088. > this will help to cement the idea of "doing wrong things for right reasons" into Kaiser's head, and it'll allow him to try to rationalize both his and Cozy Glow's actions in the future.

  3143. after those filler episodes, I think it's high time we get to those ritual spells.
  3144. > Twilight and Glimmer have been working constantly to get this spell up and running.
  3145. > eventually, they figure it out.
  3146. > to simplify it, there are symbols drawn in the ground, the letter wished to be sent is placed in the middle of the symbols on any flat-ish piece of stone, and then you chant a phrase once, loud and clear as you sprinkle lots of water around the symbols and on the letter. the letter will sizzle away like acid and be delivered to whomever's name was chanted, so long as you know what they look like.
  3147. > a bit of an ordeal, but I like going into the semantics and nuances. it's fun.
  3148. > anyways, Twiggy n' Glimmy test it and it works like a champ. even if somebody were to botch the ritual, nothing bad happens. "this is perfect for our field trip! our plans are coming together!"
  3149. > eventually, they reach out to the parents from the other nations, asking for permission so long as their students are proven to be able to perform this communication thingy, and they agree.
  3150. > classes teach this communications ritual, and Cozy is quick to master it and test its effectiveness.
  3151. > ("the reach on this spell is perfect! if I can contact the other side of the damn world, then Tartarus will be a non-issue. my plans are all falling into place!")
  3152. > Sure enough, Cozy Glow contacts Tirek through Tartarus. she gives him the low-down, and Tirek makes the rest of Golly's plan for her.
  3153. > apparently, this field trip can be more useful than just getting to fax conquerors in hell; Tirek's plan modifications say that collecting Relics from diverse nations can prove instrumental.
  3154. > this plan requires seven Relics. you already know them, it's the ones from "a matter of principals"
  3155. > Cloak of Clover the Clever
  3156. > Amulet of Aurora
  3157. > Knuckerbacher's Conch Shell Horn
  3158. > Crown of Grover
  3159. > Talisman of Mirage
  3160. > Helm of Ykslur
  3161. > and a seventh one, called a "Memory Fragment."
  3162. > Cozy is vaguely familiar with all of those, save for this "Memory Fragment"
  3163. > Tirek reveals that it's one of the most mysterious types of magical artifacts. they can do many things, but side effects tend to involve memories, be that taking, copying, storing, replacing, altering, etc. no pony knows who made them or for what purpose, but Lucky for Cozy Glow, there's a couple of them hidden in the world, and she only need one, and it doesn't matter which; any memory fragment will do.
  3164. > so the plan is simple; find a way to collect these artifacts without drawing suspicion.
  3165. > maybe we could find some way to convince the other nations to donate a relic to the school for representation or historical purposes? even if it's only temporarily? or maybe we'll have to make decoys?
  3166. > anyways, the field trip is in a couple of days. she needs to prepare for everything. making plans and contingencies, crafting decoy relics just in case, filling-in Kaiser on the plan, etc.

  3228. i have all six parts of the field trip written. they're fairly short, all except for one....
  3229.  
  3230. which one should I do first? I can rearrange the order of the field trip locations easily, and the edits required are so small and already labeled, so it would take about four minutes.
  3231.  
  3232. which nation and people do we explore first? (and is there anything you're looking forward to seeing?)

  3237. I have decided upon this order, I guess:
  3238. Gryphonstone
  3239. Dragon Lands
  3240. Yakyakistan
  3241. Mount Aris
  3242. (detour through either Cat Kingdom or Diamond Dogs' Domain, haven't decided yet)
  3243. Changeling Hive
  3244. Canterlot or Crystal Empire, doesn't really matter which.
  3245. here we go:
  3246. > the field trip begins! we start at Gryphonstone.
  3247. > by the way, each area would be about 2~3 episodes at least.
  3248. > Gryphonstone is relatively short, I'm assuming 2 episodes. start things off easy.
  3249. > starts by showing gryphon society.
  3250. > it's ALL staged in order to make them look like.... NOT assholes. it's so blatantly obvious, though.
  3251. > Twilight is a naive little bitch, however, and just thinks "Wowie! the Gryphons really turned themselves around!!"
  3252. > gryphon students like Gallus are expected to help everybody else learn about the culture, but all of them seem very eager to rush the group along and get everything over with as fast as possible.
  3253. > Dash, who knows the REAL gryphonstone all too well, as well as Appulz who can smell this lie of a performance from a mile away, take their group to sus out what the hell is going on
  3254. > walking just a little bit past where they were intended to go, and they see the real face of gryphonstone. everybody hates you, nobody talks unless absolutely necessary and when they do they speak with ire in their very breath, they hate each other but they hate outsiders more, there are thieves around and if a thief is caught they are beaten down, it's AWFUL.
  3255. > for a better understanding of how much Gryphons hate everything and everybody and themselves, look up "United Kingdom" or "Br*tish 'people'"
  3256. > apparently, this is even worse than how they're usually acting. something is wrong.
  3257. > go back, tell Twilight, she agrees this might be a great opportunity for a hands-on friendship lesson
  3258. > asking the citizens in the phony gryphonstone, and they won't budge. they refuse to put aside their charade.
  3259. > ask citizens in REAL gryphonstone, and they spit on you and throw rocks and take your money if you're not looking.
  3260. > even the Gryphon students don't know; earlier, they simply saw an opportunity to not have to show everybody how shit their home is and tried to roll with it.
  3261. > Twilight takes her friends and the field trip to the Capitol to figure out what's with all the chicanery.

  3278. Lesbians don't like women because they're women. They like women because women are in ever sense juat large children. Ergo lesbians, like all homosexuals, default to pedophilia whenever possible.
