  5. >20th.
  6. >Average day for Anon at the local Rape Shelter in Equestria
  7. >The Rape Shelter is a holy, sacred place, and you've been metagaming the hell out of it.
  8. >Did Fluttershy approach you, or look in your general direction?
  9. >Rape Shelter.
  10. >Did you, after consuming unhealthy amounts of Applejack's hard apple cider, have an out of body experience that let you know she was nearby?
  11. >Rape Shelter.
  12. >Did Rainbow warn you about Fluttershy's newest fetish guess, and the EXACT time she'll head to your home because she's an absolute bro?
  13. >Rape.
  14. >Shelter.
  15. >You'd have found yourself soaked in sweat, drool, and mare juices a long, LONG time ago without it.
  16. >Not even Twilight's scientific mind would be able to quantify the amount of bodily fluid.
  17. >The Rape Shelter is none other than Twilight's Castle.
  18. >And it "protects" you from that stupid, ridiculously determined, mare juice-dripping yellow horse.
  19. >One day, when you needed it the most, the castle "saved" you, and you ended up abusing it to avoid Flubbercry ever since.
  20. >It all started with that time you were helping Twilight out with an..."errand".
  21. >It's a long story, and what happened during it was so traumatizing that you haven't told anyone about it.
  22. >Mainly because it's your fault
  23. >She basically sent you on a reconnaissance mission for the sole purpose of studying Zecora.
  24. >Why?
  25. >Because Twilight is a massive racist, and wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole.
  26. >That would mean being in the presence of a "Zigger".
  27. >Or worse, talking to one.
  28. >It makes you wonder why she even bothered with that "School of Friendship" crap.
  29. >Then again, all of the students' tests had questions like, "In a short paragraph, describe why you're inferior to ponies in every single way".
  30. >Humans and Ponies are pretty much at top of their respective food chains, and maybe she can sense that.
  31. >Her disdain for anything that's not a pony, or you, isn't the only thing she shares with you, and the list is pretty damn long.
  32. >And unfortunately, Sluttershy also had a key role in this little mission.
  33. >You and Twilight have learned (the hard way) that predators, especially bears, hate the absolute SHIT out of you.
  34. >Not wanting her brand new monkey friend to get ripped apart on his way through Everfree Forest, she teamed you up with the animal hoers.
  35. >No bear, wolf, lion, or any other dangerous creature would maul you to death if Fluttershy was there to calm them down.
  36. >Any other time was different, as you could honestly just walk away from her.
  37. >Or, you know, physically defend yourself like that "one" time.
  38. >Thinking about it now makes you quake in your boots.
  39. >That time, however, you would eventually find yourself at Fluttershy's mercy.
  40.  
  41. >You and Wubadubdub gathered all of your data, found out what a "marefare check" was, and hightailed it out of there before Zecora spotted you.
  42. >Animals hate you just as well as they can sense you, but it seemed like that trip through the forest would've been painless that time.
  43. >If you can call having to pry Fluttershy's face away from your crotch, and hearing her sniff you from afar painless.
  44. >To your horror, TWO bears came out of seemingly nowhere, and you almost unironically shat yourself.
  45. >You've seen the bullshit Fluttershy can pull with animals, but you were still scared for your life at the time.
  46. >That's when Rapetholomew I of Rapestantinople initiated her fool-proof plan.
  47. >While you were farting, shitting, and cumming out of fear, Fluttershy turned to you.
  48. >You'll never forget the words she said to you afterwards.
  49. >"I-I'll make you a d-deal, Anon..."
  50. >"...Either, t-take off your pants, or d-die."
  51. "...Huh?"
  52. >You stared at the yellow rapist for what felt like a solid minute, completely flabbergasted.
  53. >At the time, you wondered if she really had it in her to threaten your life for some dick.
  54. >It's entirely possible that she was bluffing, but you weren't willing to test that out.
  55. >Fluttershy's proposition distracted you enough that the two bears' quickening advancement surprised you.
  56. >In a matter of seconds, you would've been lunch, so there was no time to think.
  57. >You never thought you'd be so apprehensive about unzipping your pants in front of a girl, but there you were.
  58. >Your hands were shaking, you were sweating bullets, and it took much longer than it should have to free Anon Jr.
  59. >"N-Now, I know you two don't like Anon, but give it some thought before you tear him to shreds."
  60. >You were too busy pulling out Mr. President to notice it, but the bears were in deep thought after hearing Fluttershy's words.
  61. >After placing reasonable doubt in their minds, Fluttershy was glaring at your crotch like a madman, drooling the entire time.
  62. >Her eyes were as wide as dinner plates, and the floodgates had been opened.
  63. >In other words, mare juice.
  64. >Mare juice everywhere.
  65. >When you were finished struggling, Fluttershy didn't waste any time.
  66. >Before you knew it, you were getting the most extreme, hardcore SUCK of your life.
  67. >Thinking about the fine details sends shivers down your spine to this day, but you remember it all.
  68. >Flubbercry was devouring your hopes, your dreams, and everything that you ever loved.
  69. >Birds and small critters of all kinds fled the area as your desperate cry for help echoed throughout Everfree Forest.
  70. "HNNNNNGGHH"
  71. >It wasn't really a cry for help, but it was the only thing you could manage.
  72. >You were begging for some kind of god, maybe even Celestia, to save you.
  73. >Just when you were about to show Fluttershy what Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing tastes like, your prayers were answered.
  74.  
  75. >In the strangest way imaginable.
  76. >Some kind of trippy rainbow beam shot out of your chest, and flew off in some random direction.
  77. >However, after a few moments, the direction didn't seem so random to you.
  78. >It felt like it was flying off to Twilight's castle, but you still have no idea how you would've known that.
  79. >Much like the after effects of overindulging on Applejack's hard cider, it felt like an out of body experience.
  80. >The strangest thing happened immediately afterwards.
  81. >Thomas The Rape Engine released you from her super mega ultra gorilla grip orifice, and was stood perfectly still.
  82. >To be perfectly honest, it creeped you out.
  83. >She was just standing there.
  84. >No blinking, no movement, no nothing.
  85. >Calling out to her didn't do anything, either.
  86. >You also remembered that there's still two bears having a philosophical discussion with each other about the value of your life.
  87. >It may have been cruel, but you didn't want to stick around to find out what the conclusion was, so you zipped back up and ran for it.
  88. >Your first order of business after leaving The Statue of Rape in the woods was to return to Twilight.
  89. >After telling her everything you learned, and agreeing with her about the inferiority of Zebras just to get things over with, she asked where Fluttershy was.
  90. >You gave the most generic answer you could think of, like that she had to go feed Angel, or something.
  91. >Twilight Spergle thanked you for your service, before hugging your leg.
  92. "HNNNNNGGHH"
  93. >-Was the sound you made after she did so.
  94. >Even though she's autistic, extremely racist, and has several other issues with social interaction, she's far more likeable than Flubbercry.
  95. >Of course, the unexplainable events didn't end there.
  96. >Fluttershy would eventually snap out of whatever petrification-like state that she was in, and she too returned to Twilight's castle.
  97. >What happened when she arrived is one of the weirdest, yet hilarious things you've ever seen.
  98. >You excused yourself from the autistic purple horse, and decided it was as good a time as any to grab some grub.
  99. >Your daily lunch with Rainbow was going to be heaven compared to what you had been through.
  100. >A freshly cooked, hot meal with your bro would have been the perfect thing to erase every memory of what happened in that forest.
  101. >Before you got around to any of that, you were stopped by Fluttershy at the door.
  102. >Or more accurately, at the stairs.
  103. >She was stood just in front of the first step, and for some reason, her body was jittering about.
  104. >Rubber Flubber was sweating bullets just as hard as you were in the forest, and it was pretty fucking awkward.
  105. "S-Sorry about leaving you in the forest back there, Fluttershy..."
  106. >You rubbed the back of your head nervously, knowing it wasn't any good to leave her in that condition without knowing what caused it.
  107. >Maybe, just maybe, that's what she deserved for holding you at bear-point and forcefully sucking you off in the woods, though.
  108.  
  109. >"...C-Can't come...any...closer..."
  110. >Fluttershy's volume is usually never high.
  111. >However, you could barely hear her just now.
  112. >That's when it hit you.
  113. >You remembered that random rainbow beam that shot out of your chest while you were getting molested.
  114. >It HAD to be tied to the castle, and it seems like Flutter Butter has been banned from entering.
  115. >While you stared at Fluttershy as she struggled to exist, Autism Supreme stepped beside you unannounced.
  116. >"Anon?" Twilight asked, looking up at you. "What are you standing around in the doorway for?"
  117. >You quickly looked down at her, jumping a little bit from the sudden surprise.
  118. >After speaking, Twilight noticed Fluttershy at the bottom of the stairs.
  119. >"...And what in the name of Equestria is going on here?!"
  120. >Twilight's reaction was justified as Fluttershy's appearance was pretty ghastly by this point.
  121. >The poor thing looked like she caught rabies.
  122. >"Anon, I-I'm gonna f-f-f-fuck you s-so hard..." Fluttershy muttered, still shivering like she had seen a ghost.
  123. >"PPFFFFT-HAAAAAAAAA!!!" Uproarious laughter had burst out from Twilight, who fell to the floor and rolled around.
  124. >You were about to join her, but you suppressed the laugh as much as you could.
  125. >Fluttershy was going to drain you dry if you dared to leave this castle, so you simply walked back inside.
  126. "Uhm, hey, meet me inside, Twilight."
  127. >Turning around, you walked back into the castle, waiting for Twiggles to finish laughing at Fluttershy.
  128. >After a good three minutes, she finally had her fill and came back in.
  129. >"Haaaahhh...I really needed that..." She was still recovering from her superlative laugh, the highest degree of laughter.
  130. >"...Now, care to explain why Fluttershy is standing outside the castle like a weirdo and muttering obscenities at you?"
  131. >Not wanting to tell Twilight the horrifying details of what happened in the woods, you ended up dismissing her question.
  132. "She's just...really riled up, that's all."
  133. >"Riled up is a bit of an understatement."
  134. >As always, Twilight was skeptical and didn't find the answer to be something so simple.
  135. "Well, I'm sure she'll be fine. Besides, me and Dash are supposed to be having our daily lunch soon. I'd rather not stick around for too long."
  136. >"And how do you suppose you'll get past Fluttershy? I doubt she'll just let you walk past her in that state."
  137. >Jumping out one of the castle windows would have been a terrible idea.
  138. >That horse was on high alert mode, and if she didn't smell you, her marehood would have reacted to your human pheromones or some shit.
  139. >The only viable option at the time was to call upon Twiggles for help.
  140. "With YOUR help! Why don't you, uh...distract her for me? If you know what I mean?"
  141. >"I had a feeling you would say that." Twilight sighed, beginning to step outside to buy you time.
  142. >"Since you helped me out with that errand, consider us even, okay?"
  143. "Hell yeah! You're the fuckin' best, Twilight! Maybe we can hang out sometime tomorrow?"
  144. >"Sure, sure." Twilight replied, giggling in that nerdy, adorable way you've always liked.
  145. >While she kept Fluttershy busy, you made your way to the back of the castle, and hopped outside through a window.
  146. >That ends the magical, and mysterious origin story of the Rape Shelter.
  147. >That was about a week ago, and you're currently huddled up in your safe zone.
  148. >Your horny, foaming-at-the-mouth visitor is looking up at you as you look down at her.
  149. >Whatever vile, indescribable thoughts going through her mind right now are beyond you.
  150. >Twilight has seen her like this in front of her castle enough times that you owe her a real explanation, and that's okay.
  151. >You've got to get this off your chest at some point.
  152. >Turning away from the window, you head to Twilight's library, wondering in the back of your mind if it'll stay like this forever.
  153.  
  154. >Perhaps the most horrifying part of that experience was that you almost lost the game.
  155. >If it weren't for this castle, you shudder to think how that would've ended.
  156. >Because there's a good chance it wouldn't have stopped at Fluttershy's hot-dog eating competition.
  157. >On your way to Twilight's book chambers, you whipped your head around at a familiar sight.
  158. >It was that rainbow beam again, but this time, it was moving much, much slower.
  159. >Considering this thing has something to do with this castle, you stopped what you were doing and followed.
  160. >Maybe you can get some answers as to what the hell it even is, or why it decided to spare you.
  161. >After a bit of following, you found yourself at the round table of the castle.
  162. >The beam made contact with the table, turning on the map that Twilight had shown you many times before in the process.
  163. >What's even weirder is that it was pinpointing a location.
  164. >A very, very nearby location at that.
  165. >You leaned in towards the map, before comically raising your eyebrow at it like The Rock.
  166. >Fluttershy's cutie mark was hovering and spinning around this spot, just outside the castle.
  167. >Was this motherfucking castle telling you Fluttershy's exact location?
  168. >Your hands found themselves flat against the table as you leaned forward, taking a moment to process it all.
  169. >The Elements of Harmony, those artifacts Twilight told you about, were warning you about a local rapist in your area.
  170. >ONE of them, anyways.
  171. >For right now, Fluttershy was by far the largest offender.
  172. >Lyra was cutting it close a couple of times, but so far, her advances pale in comparison to Nutter Butter.
  173. >That doesn't mean that it gets any less tiresome having to wipe her drool off your fingers all the time, though.
  174. >Thinking about pony slobber brought your thoughts to that mishap in the woods.
  175. >You really don't want to admit it, but you were enjoying it.
  176. >Apart from one or two dates with your own species back on Earth, and one blowie, you haven't really done much with women.
  177. >But Fluttershy was giving you the Super Mega Ultra God-Like Fist-Clenching Soul-Stealing Guak Guak 9,000.
  178. >And you were no match for her apparent expertise.
  179. >She must practice a lot, and it scares you to think about who, or what she's been practicing on.
  180. >But does this mean you've got a rape fetish, or something?
  181. >You can't tell a single soul about it if you do, because there's the tiniest chance Fluttershy would be there.
  182. >Stalking you in the background, waiting and listening.
  183. >She'd try to rape you regardless, but her knowing that little fact would make things so much worse.
  184. >You were torn away from your train of thought when you noticed Fluttershy's location changing.
  185. >It travelled further into Ponyville before slowly fading out.
  186. >Not gonna' lie, that's ominous as fuck.
  187. >Either way, this may or may not have escalated into a "Friendship Problem" or something.
  188. >But as far as you're concerned, it's a state of national fucking emergecy.
  189.  
  190. >This makes telling Twilight even more of an obligation, so you leave the map in silence, heading to Book Horse's reading chamber.
  191. >But not before stopping in the doorway and looking over your shoulder at the map in a movie-like fashion.
  192. >Damn, you're smooth.
  193. >No wonder so many mares want you so badly.
  194. >Immediately after, some odd, sparkly shape started to materialize in front of the round table.
  195. >It looked like some kind of projection of Fluttershy, with her rear end facing you.
  196. >"G-Give me your hot monkey dick already."
  197. >You jumped backwards as the ghost-like, sparkly Fluttershy spoke to you.
  198. >Just as quickly as the apparition appeared, it left.
  199. >You could have left the room WITHOUT seeing Fluttershy's ponut and winking pussy, but you digress.
  200. >Man, the Tree of Harmony is fucking weird.
  201. >Knocking on the wall just outside Twilight's library, you decided to toy with her a bit.
  202. >She looked up from the same book she had been reading for a week straight now.
  203. >"Finished having a staring contest with your #1 fan?"
  204. >Raising a leg high into the air, you stepped into frame for comedic effect, revealing yourself.
  205. "Yeah...see...about that..."
  206. >The truth has to come out.
  207. >Sooner rather than later.
  208. >Twilight is a very autistic, but understanding horse.
  209. >You're worried about nothing, honestly.
  210. "...So, when me and Fluttershy were on our way back to Ponyville after running that errand for you..."
  211. >"Mmmhmmm?" Twilight hummed in a dubious way, like she was teasing you.
  212. "...Uhm, something happened. Something really bad. Like, Fluttershy threatening to let bears maul me for some dick levels of bad."
  213. >"PPPFFFT-"
  214. >Twilight did a spit-take of her tea, but quickly regained her composure and continued listening to you.
  215. >With a smile on her face that suggests what she just did wasn't offensive or anything.
  216. >You pinched the bridge of your nose and sighed before continuing on with your story.
  217. "Anyways, she got what she wanted."
  218. >"Got what she wanted? What's that supposed to mean, Mr. Human?"
  219. >You hate it when she does this.
  220. "She...She basically told me I'd die if I didn't take my cock out."
  221. >"MmmMMmmmhmh..." Twilight placed a hoof over her mouth, struggling not to laugh at your misfortune.
  222. "And...she started blowing me...."
  223. >"PPFF-HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!"
  224. >She fell onto her back, rolling around on the floor as she suffered from side-splitting laughter.
  225. >"OHHH, OH CELESTIA, IT HURTS! PFFHAHAAAAAAAAAAA-"
  226. "Knock it off, alright? Do you have any idea how emasculating it is to get forcefully sucked off by a horse in the woods?!"
  227. "I've never felt so powerless in my life!"
  228. >Her stomach had to have been in pain by now, and you could see the tears in her eyes.
  229. >You walked closer, standing above her as she tossed to and fro, and gave her the most disappointed look you could muster.
  230. >"I-I'm sorry! It's just..."
  231. "Twilight, please..."
  232. >Sensing some hurt in your voice, she kept her mouth shut with magic, and picked herself back up.
  233.  
  234. >All while smiling like an idiot, of course.
  235. >"Okay, okay, I'm done. Now, what happened after that?"
  236. >Finally.
  237. >She stopped.
  238. "Thanks, Twi. Anyways, her little rape attempt got cut short after this weird beam came out of me.
  239. >The sound of unicorn magic graced your ears again as she forcibly withheld her laughter.
  240. "I don't mean like that, get your mind out of the gutter, Purple Smart."
  241. >"A-And then?" Twilight, with a shaky voice.
  242. "It was a magical rainbow or something, and it flew off to this castle."
  243. >At some point, her curiosity overshadowed the urge to laugh at your pain.
  244. "After that, Fluttershy was...petrified. I think?"
  245. "She wasn't moving, or blinking, or anything. I tried to snap her out of it, but no dice."
  246. "So I just cut my losses and got out of there as fast as I could since those bears were still on stand-by."
  247. >"And that's when she started loitering outside my castle like a madmare?"
  248. "Yep. What's even weirder is that the beam JUST lead me to the map while you were in here reading."
  249. "Fluttershy's live location was on it and everything."
  250. >"Wait, what? Why would the Elements of Harmony...?" Twilight looked so confused.
  251. >You can't blame her, though.
  252. >This is a pretty ridiculous situation.
  253. "Of course, I'm not complaining about it, or anything."
  254. >"Is the map still doing that right now?"
  255. "Nope. At least, I don't think so. After a while, she walked away from the castle, and then the signal died."
  256. >"Hmmm..."
  257. >Wolfgang Autism Mozart scratched her chin with a hoof, trying to find an explanation for all of this.
  258. "We can go check now if you want, maybe she's back outside."
  259. >"I was thinking the same thing. Let's go take a look."
  260. >Twilight trotted off at a quick pace towards the atrium, and you followed behind.
  261. >And you totally weren't staring at her fat, purple ass on the way there.
  262. >All of that low physical activity, and sitting around wasn't doing her body fat any favors.
  263. >For all intents and purpose, you absolutely would.
  264. >You really would.
  265. >Once the two of you arrived at your destination, you briefly looked over the map.
  266. >Nothing.
  267. >"And you're sure that the map was showing you where Fluttershy was? You weren't mistaken, or anything?"
  268. "If I'm mistaken, then I must be fucking crazy or something, because it looked pretty real to me..."
  269. >With perfect, uncanny timing, you overheard Rainbow calling out to you through the halls.
  270. >She flew into the room, greeting the two of you.
  271. >It was almost time for your daily lunch with Rainbro, so it looks like she came to you this time.
  272. >It's no surprise that she knew where to look, too.
  273. >You've been hanging out at the Rape Shelter more often than your own home at this point.
  274. >"H-Hey Twi. Hey, Anon...have you two seen Fluttershy today?"
  275. "Uhhh...yeah. Why do you ask?"
  276. >"Well, I saw her outside the castle standing in a puddle of...uh..."
  277. "Mare juice?"
  278. >"D-Don't say it like that! What the heck is wrong with you?!"
  279. >Rainbow's voice cracked, and she was blushing profusely.
  280.  
  281. >"P-Put a sock in it! Now, do you either of you know what's wrong with her? She wouldn't even respond to me!"
  282. >You might as well tell her, too.
  283. >But you'll just give her the short version.
  284. >Her little heart probably wouldn't be able to handle the full story.
  285. "Long story short, the Elements of Harmony are stopping Fluttershy from coming into the castle."
  286. "...And also, proooobably protecting me from getting raped."
  287. >"WHAT?!" Rainbow shouted, almost piercing your ear drums.
  288. "I mean, it's not that hard to believe. Fluttershy's advances are obviously affecting our friendship."
  289. >"You really think this is a friendship problem, or something?"
  290. >Rainbow couldn't believe what she was hearing, and Twilight looked like she was cooking up schemes.
  291. "Twilight, what's with that look on your face?"
  292. >"Oh! Nothing! I'm just...thinking..."
  293. >"Think about it later, egghead! It's almost time for lunch!"
  294. >She was right.
  295. >But that's what scares you.
  296. >She'll probably have to get distracted again so you can leave this castle un-molested.
  297. >"Anon, I have an idea. You might not like it, but it's the right thing to do."
  298. >Oh no.
  299. >You seriously hope she wasn't about to say it.
  300. >"The three of us can go out to lunch, but Fluttershy has to come with us."
  301. >Her purple hoof clopped against the floor, emphasizing her words.
  302. >That's exactly what you were afraid of.
  303. >Ever since you discovered the Rape Shelter's almighty field of protection, you've avoided Fluttershy.
  304. >That means no conversations, no casual greetings, or anything like that.
  305. >Imagine hanging around someone who's been staring at you the way she has been for the past week.
  306. >Hell, imagine hanging around someone who used angry bears against you as a bargaining chip for her sexual desires.
  307. >It was the last thing you wanted to do at this point, friendship problem or not.
  308. "Ughh...alright, fine."
  309. >"Don't worry, bro! We've got your back!" Dash winked, bumping you with her elbow.
  310. >Or her knee?
  311. >Whatever the hell it is.
  312. >Her enthusiasm is therapeutic, and even though it's embarrassing, it's giving you confidence.
  313. >You run your hands through Fast Horse's mane, petting her like you would a house pet back on Earth.
  314. >"W-What's the big idea, huh? Why do you always start petting me like this...?"
  315. "Just felt like doing it. It's a bro thing, y'know?"
  316. >"Sure, whatever..." She pretended not to like it, but you can tell she was moving into your hands.
  317. >You didn't notice, but Twilight had a bit of an envious look on her face.
  318. >It's impossible for anypony to not know about your bromance with Rainbow.
  319. >There isn't a single day you aren't spending time with her.
  320. >With this whole "friendship problem" fiasco, you've been spending more time with Twilight, too.
  321. >Still, it's not wrong to think Twilight wanted just as much attention from you, if not more.
  322.  
  323. >"Alright, Mr. Human. Just stick with us, and you'll be just fine." Twilight spoke up, before turning around.
  324. >Twi started to leave the castle, Rainbow flew after her, and you soon followed.
  325. >It's not like you were opposed to being friends with Fluttershy, not at all.
  326. >She was actually really pleasant during your first week in Horse World.
  327. >But after a few missing pieces of underwear, love letters soaked with juices, and unwarranted ass groping, things got weird.
  328. >Fast.
  329. >Eventually bringing you to the way things are now, and you're not happy about it.
  330. >You let Twilight and Rainbow be the first to leave the castle, while you peeked through the doorway.
  331. >Just in time to see Fluttershy's eyes lock onto you.
  332. >It was like something out of a horror movie.
  333. >The yellow pony didn't react in any way to Twi or Dash, as if they weren't even there.
  334. >"Quit bein' such a baby, Anon! If she does anything crazy, I'll teach her a lesson."
  335. >You've essentially got two bodyguards, so being this worried is a tad bit illogical.
  336. >Stepping one foot onto the stairs, Fluttershy also stepped forward ever so slightly.
  337. >Doing your best to ignore that, you make your way further down the steps.
  338. >For some reason, you were suddenly filled with morbidly curiousity.
  339. >Along with a confidence boost from having the Globgogabgalab and Sonic The Hedgehog by your side.
  340. >In a way that completely betrayed your previous display of fear, you darted past Fluttershy as quickly as you could.
  341. >To your horror, Fluttershy turned around on a dime.
  342. >Your heart dropped when you looked back to see her running after you.
  343. >Not flying.
  344. >RUNNING.
  345. >AT FULL SPEED.
  346. "Dash?! TWILIGHT?! PLEASE?!"
  347. >You regret everything you've ever done, ever.
  348. >If you didn't use the restroom a while ago, you'd have pissed yourself.
  349. >You shrieked at the top of your lungs, begging for them to stop her.
  350. >"W-We're on it!" Rainbow dashed after John Carpenter's The Rapist, and Twilight slowed her down with magic.
  351. >Key word, SLOWED her down.
  352. >As powerful as Twilight's magic was, she was struggling to restrain this horse.
  353. >"Why...is she...so...strong?!" Twilight felt herself being physically pulled; That's how relentless Fluttershy was.
  354. >If Fluttershy were to get a hold of you in that state, your pelvis would be pounded into fucking dust.
  355.  
  356. >Once Rainbow caught up to her, she tackled Flubbercry to the ground, tumbling along the dirt path.
  357. >You didn't stop running, though.
  358. >Not for a while.
  359. >Just to confirm that she was undeniably, 100% restrained.
  360. >The teamwork between Twi and Dash seemed to be enough to hold Fluttershy still.
  361. >"Okay, that's enough! Snap out of it, will ya'?!" Rainbow raised a hoof, and literally "slapped" the crazy out of her.
  362. >A moment later, Fluttershy shook her head, and looked around like she was lost or something.
  363. >"W-W-What's g-going on?! Where am I?" It was like she was an entirely different person.
  364. >"Rainbow, why are you on top of me...?"
  365. >"Because you were chasing Anon into Ponyville like a maniac! What's gotten into you?!"
  366. >"I...I..."
  367. >Reese's Peanut Flutter Cups was at a loss for words.
  368. >It's definitely not an act, as far as you could tell.
  369. >Dash got off of her, allowing Fluttershy to stand on shaky feet.
  370. >"Fluttershy, what was the last thing you remember doing?"
  371. >Twilight caught up to the three of you, keeping her magic at the ready just in case.
  372. >"I...feel awful. The last thing I remember was...um...coming back to Ponyville with Anon..."
  373. >Wait, what?
  374. >Coming back to Ponyville with you?
  375. >Twi's pupils shrank, as she realized it at the same time you did.
  376. >Has she been in a lust-induced stupor for an entire week?
  377. >Did the Tree of Harmony freezing her in place back in the forest fry her fucking brain?
  378. "Uh-huh. Well, we took care of the errand, just so you know."
  379. >"Oh, that's good to hear." She's as docile as she usually would be, so maybe it's "safe" for now.
  380. >Fluttershy was never brave enough to pull any of the rapey stuff in public or around others.
  381. >It makes you wonder what would happen if you turned and went back into the castle.
  382. >You've already made one grave mistake today, so you shouldn't test your luck any further.
  383. >"Listen, I bet you and Anon already had this conversation, but I'm lost here."
  384. >You and Twi simply looked elsewhere, whistling comedically like you were both in a cartoon.
  385. >"Buck it, let's just go get lunch." Dash gave up on trying to understand, and walked off.
  386. "Wait, where are we going for lunch?"
  387. >"Taco Del Pone, duh! Did you even write that down on your calender?"
  388. >You forgot that you'd plan where you'd eat with Rainbow ahead of time, and make notes about it to remember.
  389. >Sometimes it's a routine thing where the restaurants cycle daily, sometimes it's random.
  390. "Oh, right...Sorry, I'm just recovering from the traumatizing event that just happened."
  391. >"Oooh, I love Taco Del Pone! But I probably shouldn't eat too much. Their food doesn't sit well with me..."
  392. >Fluttershy's stomach, with uncanny timing, growled loud enough to make the three of you jump.
  393.  
  394. "Yeah? Well, something tells me you should eat as much as you can."
  395. >"M-Maybe you're right. I do feel pretty hungry..."
  396. >Pretty hungry?
  397. >She probably hasn't eaten properly in a week.
  398. >And she hasn't been standing outside Twilight's castle 24/7 either, so you have no idea what else she's been up to.
  399. >"I think we could all use a good lunch." Twi added, following after Dash.
  400. >Fluttershy looked at Purple Smart, and then back to you.
  401. >This was incredibly awkward, since she might remember just as much as you did.
  402. >"A-Anon, I'm sorry for doing that to you earlier. I was really pent up..."
  403. >And that basically confirmed it.
  404. >At least she had the decency to apologize.
  405. "Mmmm...I don't know if I should accept your apology, but it's water under the bridge for now.
  406. "As long as you understand that threatening me with death is off the table. Same for everything else."
  407. >"B-But..."
  408. "No buts."
  409. >"But I see you staring at other mares' butts all the time...Why not mine?"
  410. "That's not what I meant by that. Also, most other mares have the decency to ask me things nicely."
  411. "Y'know, instead of-"
  412. >"I get it...I won't do it again..."
  413. "Good. It's surprising how far you'll go in life by asking nicely. You should try it sometime."
  414. >"F-Fuck me."
  415. >You give up.
  416. >Without looking to see if she's following behind, you jogged to catch up with Autism and Fast.
  417. >The path to Taco Del Pone would've taken about fifteen minutes to walk to, so it wouldn't be a long trip.
  418. >Ponyville was just as bustling and lively as ever, and the four of you engaged in casual conversation as you walked.
  419. >One of your favorite mailmares, Derpy, flew overhead and waved at you.
  420. >You waved back, smiling warmly.
  421. >You love that stupid, unreasonably attractive, lazy-eyed horse.
  422. >A while after, you spotted another one of your small, equine friends.
  423. >It was Pinkie, but something was considerably off about her.
  424. >She looked like she was depressed, with baggy eyes, walking while looking at the ground.
  425. >Excusing yourself from the group for a moment, you approached her.
  426. "Uhhh, Pinkie? Are you good?"
  427. >"Oh...Hey, Nonny...I haven't been able to get much sleep..."
  428. "Jesus, you sound like a zombie. No offense."
  429. >"It's okay. Fluttershy's been keeping me up all night for the past week."
  430. "What? Fluttershy? What the hell has she been doing to you?"
  431. >"I-I don't wanna' talk about it. I feel...violated. A-Anways, I've gotta get over to Rarity's. Sorry, Nonny..."
  432. >With that, Pinkie continued her walk of shame in the direction of Rarity's boutique.
  433.  
  434. >Is that what Fluttershy's been doing this past week when she wasn't stalking you outside the castle?
  435. >While she was in THAT state?
  436. "I'll catch you later, Pinkie! I'll drop by Sugarcube Corner soon, okay?"
  437. >She kept walking on, looking back to acknowledge you, but didn't reply.
  438. >Did Fluttershy...?
  439. >The thought of it gives you dirty ideas and disgusted shivers at the same time.
  440. >There's definitely something wrong with you.
  441. >Now is the WORST time to pitch a tent, so you slap yourself before returning to the others.
  442. >Bad Anon.
  443. >There's a time and place for everything.
  444. >Still, you'll have to give Fluttershy a piece of your mind for doing such a thing to Ponka.
  445. >Targeting you was bad enough, but now she's going after her other friends?
  446. >For shame.
  447. >"W-What was the hold up, Anon?" Rapetholomew asked, as you jogged up behind the group.
  448. "Nothing. Just wanted to say hi to somepony."
  449. >It'd be best not to tell the others about it for now, since Pinkie looked so exhausted.
  450. >Her friends worrying about her would make a bad situation worse.
  451. >Before long, the four of you entered into Taco Del Pone.
  452. >"ssnnniiiIIIFFFFF...Haaaaaa...Smells good!" Rainbow inhaled deeply, enjoying the mouth-watering smell of fast food.
  453. >"I heard they added a new menu option! Wanna' try it out with me, Anon?" Twi asked, smiling cutely at you.
  454. "Eh, why not? I order the same thing every time I come here anyway. As long as it doesn't have hay or grass in it."
  455. >"Well, wouldya' look at that? Howdy, y'all! And it's good to see you too, Mr. Anonymous. I had fun drinkin' last week."
  456. >The familiar voice of a hard-working, orange horse with a southern accent graced your ears.
  457. >"Applejack! I haven't seen you in a while. I guess it's my fault for getting so absorbed in my books."
  458. >"H-Hi, Applejack. It's good to see you..." Fluttershy spoke in her typical quiet horse voice.
  459. >"Yo, what's up, AJ?" Rainbow took a seat next to Apple Horse, before pointing a hoof at Twi.
  460. >"Hey, Twi, you remember what the rest of us usually get, right? Do me a solid and order for us!" Dash said to Twi.
  461. >"Sure. Don't blame me if you change your mind later, though."
  462. "We should hang out at the again sometime soon, AJ. Looks like the whole horse gang is here except for Pinkie and Rarity."
  463. >"Yup. And it's a darn shame Spike is off at the Crystal Empire havin' an audience with Cadence."
  464. >That reminds you.
  465. >Twilight might have asked Spike to run that "errand" for her if he wasn't in Crystal Town.
  466. >Hopefully everything is okay over there.
  467. >But now isn't the time to worry about this or that, it's time to eat.
  468. >And eat you did.
  469. >It was the best meal you've had in a long time, accompanied with plenty of laughter and banter.
  470.  
  471. >Fluttershy was mostly quiet the entire time.
  472. >That was when you noticed she wasn't actually sitting in her seat.
  473. >Even the others were too busy chatting and gossiping to notice.
  474. >You put down your Menu Item #12, Meat-Substitute Burrito(TM) to look around for her.
  475. >Just then, you felt the familiar feeling of a snout jamming itself into your groin.
  476. >Much to your dismay, the sudden touch on Anon Jr. made him excited.
  477. >Resting an arm on the table, you dipped your head underneath it to see a Yellow Retard drooling on your crotch.
  478. "Are you fucking kidding me? Get! Go on, get!"
  479. >You swatted her face away with your hand, even going as far as pushing her away with your palm.
  480. >"Y-You're getting hard, Anon. G-go on, just fuck my mouth..."
  481. >This damn horse was getting braver and braver by the day.
  482. >And the worst part is that you thought about it.
  483. >Honestly, that means she's already won the battle.
  484. >But not the war.
  485. >You won't fall victim to her feminine wiles today.
  486. >No, sir.
  487. >She spoke just loud enough for you and you alone to hear it amidst the sounds of nearby conversation.
  488. "I swear to Celestia, if you don't get off me, I'll fucking KILL YOU."
  489. >"Uhh, what was that, Anon?" Applejack turned to face you, as did the others.
  490. >You were a little too loud at the end of your sentence.
  491. >Fluttershy retreated back to her chair, acting as if her butt never left the seat to begin with.
  492. >Speaking of that chair, it's probably soaked in Flutter Juice(TM) right now.
  493. "N-Nothing! Ignore what I said! I just remembered that I left my...uh...wallet at home! Yep. Silly me..."
  494. >"Oooook. Anyways, like I was tellin' y'all, Big Mac showed up with this huge..."
  495. >AJ continued on with her story, as the others redirected their attention back to her and their food.
  496. >Out of the corner of your eye, you noticed Fluttershy giving you the most diabolical look.
  497. >A dubious little creature, getting up to mischief.
  498. >This is no good.
  499. >Then you saw the peculiar way her hoof was moving, and you realized what she was doing with it under the table.
  500. >All while looking you dead in the eyes, like she wants you to know what she's doing.
  501. >Ugh.
  502. >The beast is demonic in nature.
  503. >Very icky.
  504. >No good.
  505. >Surely, this small momentary victory, if you can even call it that, was far from the end.
  506. >The war on Rape still rages on, but the rest is a tale for another day.
  507.  
  508. _
  509.  
  510. >21st.
  511. >Yesterday was fairly eventful, but mostly par for the course.
  512. >Only if you exclude the odd rainbow trail here and there, and Fluttershy scaring you half to death.
  513. >One boundary you're trying not to cross is becoming too dependent on the castle.
  514. >Especially after what happened the last time the Tree of Harmony worked its magic.
  515. >You don't understand the ins and outs right now, but you've recognized a few patterns.
  516. >Every so often, Mr. Rainbow, your little buddy, shows up and goes to Twilight's castle.
  517. >It happened for the third time last night, just before you dozed off in bed.
  518. >Ignoring it may have been a bad choice, but you were drop dead tired.
  519. >Fluttershy doesn't seem to be able to enter the castle at all.
  520. >And the main thing you're afraid to find out, is WHY she entered that crazy state.
  521. >A slap to the face from Rainbow was enough to wake her up.
  522. >But what got her into it in the first place?
  523. >Is it merely because she got cockblocked, and couldn't follow you around as easily?
  524. >That would have lead to a massive build-up of sexual frustration.
  525. >It wasn't too dissimilar from how a mare would act in heat.
  526. >You've had the (mis)fortune of witnessing it in action before, but this was different.
  527. >They would've been much more responsive, and they wouldn't be displaying rabies symptoms either.
  528. >And they CERTAINLY wouldn't have hulked out like Fluttershy did.
  529. >Not to mention the week-long crime of passion she had apparently committed against Ponka Pay.
  530. >Was she that downbad that she had to rape her best friend just because she couldn't reach you?
  531. >Down Horrendous is more accurate, honestly.
  532. >Down Catastrophic, if you will.
  533. >After lunch yesterday, Twilight approached you to discuss what the next steps going forward would be.
  534. >Telling the rest of the group they need to assemble to stop a Super Rapist(TM) sounded wrong.
  535. >The Super Rapist(TM) being one of them, no less.
  536. >Necessary, maybe?
  537. >Sure, but who really knows?
  538. >After experiencing unparalleled fear, the alternative doesn't sound so bad.
  539. >Animal Hoers in her default state wasn't that hard to handle.
  540. >Provided she didn't up the ante like she did in Everfree Forest.
  541. >You and Grand Autismo decided to simply monitor Fluttershy's next moves.
  542. >That, and Applejack decided today would be a great day for Bomb-Ass Cider(TM).
  543. >You didn't turn her down, but when you mentioned wanting to drink more with her, you didn't think it'd be so soon again.
  544. >When you said soon, you didn't mean THAT soon.
  545. >Besides, getting destroyed isn't really the smartest thing to do when Rape Horse might freak out at any time.
  546.  
  547. >At this point, you're making yourself paranoid thinking about it.
  548. >After the stunt you pulled running past her earlier, you might just be crazy.
  549. >That would explain why you're even thinking of stepping outside without bodyguards.
  550. >Tossing your fears aside, you throw your bed covers off of you.
  551. >Daily routine time.
  552. >Shit.
  553. >Shower.
  554. >And most definitely shave, because you've been putting it off.
  555. >You almost forgot to cross off yesterday on your calender, too.
  556. >Today is the 21st.
  557. >Opening your fridge to peruse your "mainly" horse-friendly foods, you cracked open a few eggs in a bowl.
  558. >After whipping up a few pancakes as well, you had a certified Breakfast(TM).
  559. >You've got to figure out what Taco Del Pone used for their meat-substitute.
  560. >That would really enhance this meal and bring more flavor out.
  561. >Once you had your fill, you yeeted your dishes into the sink like a lazy person.
  562. >Today, you had a few stops in mind.
  563. >Your drinking "date" with AJ was first up, and you couldn't forget about lunch with Rainbow.
  564. >She'd probably kill you if you did.
  565. >But before you have lunch with Dash, you told Pinkie you'd check on her yesterday.
  566. >Dropping by the boutique before or afterwards to see Rarity might not be a bad idea, too.
  567. >You haven't spoken to Rara since she made you your clothes two weeks ago.
  568. >That's no way to treat a good friend, so you've gotta' do a better job of checking on everypony.
  569. >Even the mares outside of Twilight's little friend group.
  570. >And maybe even that "Starlight" mare Twilight told you about.
  571. >Twilight seems to think the two of you would get along.
  572. >Despite the whole trying to end the world thing that she also informed you about.
  573. >You assume that she's had all or most of her kinks ironed out by now.
  574. >Apparently she's been studying at the Crystal Empire for a little over two months now.
  575. >Internet withdrawal has been hitting you pretty hard, but making new friends has been helping.
  576. >Gotta' keep yourself busy somehow.
  577. >But sometimes, you feel as though you rely on relationships for your happiness TOO much.
  578. >You stepped out into the streets of Ponyville, your door automatically locking behind you.
  579. >Today was going to be a good day.
  580. >Yep, absolutely.
  581. >Nothing would go wrong.
  582. >Nothing at all.
  583. >On your way to Sweet Apple Acres, something snagged your leg, and you thought it was a loose nail or something.
  584. >When you turned around, you saw Ponyville's local finger fetishist, holding your leg with magical hands.
  585. >And, of course, she had to be a unicorn.
  586.  
  587. "Hey, Lyra."
  588. >"Where ya' goin, Anon?"
  589. >Sometimes, you wish you had magic of your own.
  590. >But so far, the only magical thing about you is the ability to get fucked.
  591. >Literally and figuratively.
  592. "Just going to hang out with AJ, nothing much other than that.
  593. >"You and her are always drinking together, why don't you ever go drinking with me, huh?"
  594. "No offense, but I feel like Applejack wouldn't try to stick a magical finger in my ass while I'm drunk."
  595. >"Okay, I did that ONE time, and you still haven't forgotten about it?"
  596. "Lyra, you don't just forget about something like that."
  597. >She started giggling at you, of course.
  598. >Is there a single horse in this world that takes your feelings seriously without laughing at you?
  599. >You swear Celestia herself would laugh in your face if you told her about this Fluttershy situation.
  600. >"Don't give me that angry look, Anon. You know I love messing with you."
  601. "Yeah, yeah, yeah..."
  602. >"Now let me see those fingers..."
  603. >There you go.
  604. >Things were going to get weird eventually.
  605. "I know better than to put my digits anywhere near you at this point.."
  606. >"I-I'm just curious is all? What's so wrong with that?"
  607. "Uh-huh. You've been curious about them ever since you first saw me, and I don't think you'll ever stop."
  608. >"Well, maybe, I wouldn't be so curious if you just let me have my way already!"
  609. "In your dreams, Heartstrings."
  610. >"Oh...don't worry...I've had more dreams than I can count..."
  611. >You couldn't help but facepalm after hearing that.
  612. >What are you going to do with these horses?
  613. >Maybe if you were a different man, you'd have fingered her twenty different ways by now.
  614. >But you've got enough self-control to-
  615. >Lyra rubbing her face against your fingers while you weren't looking shook you out of your thoughts.
  616. "C-Could you not?"
  617. >"What? Is it illegal to touch my favorite human?"
  618. "I'm the ONLY human, Lyra."
  619. >"You won't be after I'm done with you."
  620. "...Huh?"
  621. >You gaped at the mint-colored talking horse, not knowing how to respond to that.
  622.  
  623. >Shaking your head, you tried not to think too hard about it.
  624. "...Listen, AJ is probably expecting me right about now, so if you want to come with, you can."
  625. >"Awww, I'd love to take you up on that offer, but Bon Bon and I got something planned."
  626. "What a shame. Maybe we can try some other time?"
  627. >"I'll hold you to that, Anon. You better not try and dodge me next time I see you."
  628. "You're a pony, not a weapon of mass destruction. I have no reason to run from you, little horsey."
  629. >"I don't know, you've been pretty avoidant this past week..."
  630. >Looking towards the ground, you realize she's not entirely wrong.
  631. "...There's...a lot going on. That's all I'll say. But it's nothing serious."
  632. >It's extremely serious, but you do NOT want Lyra to hear about human-on-pony action.
  633. >You might have another Fluttershy on your hands if she did.
  634. >"Alright, just know that Lyra is here whenever you need her!"
  635. >"My little human."
  636. >Cringe.
  637. "Bye."
  638. >"Anon? Was it something I said?"
  639. "I'll see you later, Lyra."
  640. >You shoved your hands into your Human Hoodie(TM), created by none other than Rarara herself, and left.
  641. >Not to be mean, but you've got places to be, and so does she apparently.
  642. >She'll forget every last one of her commitments if it meant she could tease you for just a bit longer.
  643. >After a bit of walking, you arrived at the first stop of the day.
  644. >Apple World(TM).
  645. >Or as Twilight aptly put it, Incest Acres.
  646. >But she'd never say that in front of AJ, or to anypony else but you.
  647. >Heavens no.
  648. >Even you wouldn't want to be around for the aftermath of that.
  649. >Before long, you spotted Cowboy Ranchpants across the field, pulling a tractor with her clit.
  650. >Not really, but that'd be the most hilarious shit you've ever seen.
  651. >In reality, she was bucking trees, knocking apples loose into buckets placed below.
  652. >It's a no brainer, but her legs must be stronk as fuck.
  653. >Her entire everything too, honestly.
  654. >Being the lazy, living off of Celestia's "Friendship Fund", human that you are, you respect it.
  655. >Nopony around here works quite as hard as Applejack does.
  656. >A literal tradwife.
  657.  
  658. "Yo'."
  659. >You announced your presence, waving at her as you closed the distance.
  660. >AJ paused her tree-bucking, looking up to greet you.
  661. >"Oh, ya' finally showed up! Didn't think y'all were gonna' show, so I just got to work."
  662. "Am I really that late?"
  663. >"Did ya' already forget what time we agreed on yesterday?"
  664. "...Uh...9 AM?"
  665. >"Nope. 7:30."
  666. "Seriously? I must have been out of it yesterday..."
  667. >You definitely were, and you probably woke up on the wrong side of bed, too.
  668. >"Welp, no sense in worryin' your pretty little head bout' that."
  669. >AJ started walking back to the farmhouse, giving you a nice view of her Apple Ass(TM).
  670. >The more time you spend in this world, the more used to seeing mare bits you become.
  671. >Not in the "everyday occurence" kind of way, but in the "I'm about to act up" kind of way.
  672. >And that worries you.
  673. "Guess it's time to head to our favorite spot? Back behind the barn?"
  674. >"You guessed it."
  675. >You followed the orange horse to your favorite drinking spot.
  676. >A simple two-chair and table setup behind the barn.
  677. >It didn't need anything else, it was perfect, and it got the job done.
  678. >Plus, Applebloom would normally be at school, or at least out of sight.
  679. >Wouldn't want to set a poor example, or else AJ will have a drunk filly on her hands.
  680. >There was a metric fuckton of hard cider already there on the table, so there was one thing left to do.
  681. >To drink.
  682. >But you held back a little this time, considering what's been happening with Fluttershy.
  683. >Besides, Applejack's hard cider is some pretty strong stuff.
  684. >You'll be falling on your ass and struggling to speak if you went too far.
  685. >"Y'all holdin' up over there? Don't tell me yer' done...HICC...already."
  686. >You stopped at seven mugs, and that's a lot for how powerful it is, but you're good at holding your alcohol.
  687. "...Me? Done? Pfft. Nahhh. I could keep going if I wanted to, but I've got stuff to do, so..."
  688. >"Stuff to do, huh? And what kind of stuff would that be?
  689. "Oh, y'know, I've gotta' drop by Sugarcube C-Corner, go talk to Rarity, have lunch w-"
  690. >You were stopped dead in your speech.
  691. >Much to your surprise, you've been struck over the back of your fucking head.
  692. >In less than a second, you were on the ground, holding your head in pain.
  693. "...A-AJ? What the..."
  694. >To say that you were seeing double would be a disservice.
  695. >You couldn't tell if you were bleeding or not, but you sure hoped you weren't.
  696. >It wasn't THAT hard of a strike, but it was enough to knock you flat on the floor.
  697. >"Afraid I can't let ya' do that, sugar cube..."
  698. >This is the literal definition of not good.
  699.  
  700. "W-What are you saying? Come on, AJ...just..."
  701. >"I want a family, ya' hear?"
  702. "...Huh?"
  703. >Why does this always happen to you?
  704. "That...that's not how it works, and you know it!"
  705. >All of the times you've hung out with Applejack, everything was fine, and now THIS happens?
  706. >Scooting back away from her as far as you could, your backpedalling was halted by a tree.
  707. >It's not like you were going to escape at that pitiful speed anyway.
  708. >"There's a first time for everthin', Anon! We won't know unless we try!"
  709. "Fuck..."
  710. >The back of your head stung once more, prompting you to clutch it.
  711. >The pain is sobering you up fast, at least.
  712. >Still, you don't think there's a way out of this even if you weren't just drinking.
  713. "W-Would it be too much trouble to re-schedule this? I'm not saying no, but..."
  714. >You started bargaining, anything to get out of this predicament, really.
  715. >"Ain't no time for waitin', big fella."
  716. >WHERE IS THE MAGICAL RAINBOW BEAM WHEN YOU NEED IT
  717. "D-Do you mind turning around? I can undress myself, but-"
  718. >Her mouth was already pulling your belt out like she had done it before.
  719. >You're screwed.
  720. >Mr. President was freed from his denim prison, and she didn't stop there.
  721. >She pulled your pants down all the way down to your knees, and proceeded to mount you.
  722. "HELP! I NEED AN ADULT!"
  723. >"We're the only two on this farm, Anon! Just...let...it...happen!"
  724. >Applejack hardly broke a sweat keeping you pinned down; It really put things into perspective.
  725. >Maybe you should just let it happen.
  726. >Your back slipped off the tree, and you rested your aching head against the soft dirt.
  727. >Followed by horse pussy slamming down onto your Sea Cucumber.
  728. >It was like every experience that you've ever had was suddenly being squeezed out of you.
  729. >As scuffed as this is, Anon Jr. doesn't care what you think.
  730. >Soon, the air was filled with the sounds of AJ's grunts, your groans, and several other things.
  731. >Things that are far too lewd to explain in detail.
  732. >At least you were able to look away from her, as staring her in the eyes during this was too much.
  733. >That didn't last long because she leaned over your face.
  734. >As you stared back at your rapist, an instinctual recess in your stupid monkey brain was triggered.
  735.  
  736. >With the strength of at least three men, you socked AJ as hard as you could.
  737. >You didn't expect it to do anything meaningful, but adrenaline is a powerful thing.
  738. >AJ was actually stunned, in fact, that punch knocked her right off of you.
  739. >It took a moment for the opportunity to register, but once it did, you got up instantly.
  740. >The only thing you had time to do was pull your pants up, and make a run for it.
  741. >She could keep your belt as a souvenir for all you cared.
  742. >5...10...15...20...25...30 meters of distance.
  743. >That punch must have done a lot of damage if she's still grounded.
  744. >"ANON! GET BACK HERE!"
  745. >You spoke too soon.
  746. >Dear God, you spoke too soon.
  747. "aaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHH-"
  748. >You screamed, and it was completely involuntary.
  749. >Fearing that she might already be right behind you, you looked over your shoulder.
  750. >Only to see a lasso flying towards you faster than you were running.
  751. >When it caught up to you, it overlapped your torso, before snagging you backwards.
  752. >Your momentum was completely halted, the wind was knocked out of you, and you hit the ground.
  753. "Uuuuughhh..."
  754. >You held your gut in pain, trying your damndest to get back up.
  755. >For any other human, that would have been it.
  756. >Doomed to hours of hot, sweaty, Sex(TM) with a farm mare until you were rescued.
  757. >However, you're comprised of various, priceless materials that are not found anywhere else.
  758. >In other words, you're built different.
  759. >It never came in handy until now, but you always keep a handy-dandy pocket knife for emergencies.
  760. >But you wouldn't dare use it on a pony, though.
  761. >You may be a hairless monkey, but you're not a caveman.
  762. >You'll be reverted back to one if AJ gets a hold of you again, that's for sure.
  763. >It takes longer to pull it out than you had hoped, but once you did, you got straight to cutting.
  764. >The rope may be strong, but your knife is stronger.
  765. >Now THIS is a knife.
  766. "YES! Come on, come on!"
  767. >When you were finally cut loose, you shouted in joy, but there's no time for celebration.
  768. >"Dagnabbit! Wait til' I get mah hooves on you!"
  769. >She'd be right on top of you in just a few moments.
  770. >Run, Run, Run, RUN, RUN, RUN
  771.  
  772. >Your name is Anonymous, and you are Speed.
  773. >She was left in the dust, choking on the trail you blazed.
  774. >"What in tarnation?!"
  775. >Applejack didn't stand a chance against your determination.
  776. >Never mind the fact that she basically just stole your virginity.
  777. >Once again, you lost the battle, but you're winning the war.
  778. >You literally can't stop winning.
  779. >Anything to make yourself feel better at this point.
  780. >Your innocence was lost a long time ago, so whatever.
  781. >"THIS AIN'T OVER, YA' HEAR?!"
  782. >The burning in your lungs and pounding of your chest wasn't enough to stop you.
  783. >If you showed even a moment of weakness, she'd resume the chase.
  784. >Despite not even being at Sweet Apple Acres anymore, you just kept going.
  785. >You weren't running from AJ at this point, you were running from everything.
  786. >You're not sure how much more of this you can take.
  787. >And you have no idea how this could have happened.
  788. >Your legs had carried you as far as they could, and you collapsed, tumbling onto your back.
  789. >Too bad Rainbow wasn't there to see how fast you were going.
  790. >Then again, it's probably best if she wasn't.
  791. >She would have been there to help, sure, but nopony should have to see something like that.
  792. >Every cell in your body was screaming for oxygen.
  793. >Not surprising, because you're not used to that level of exertion.
  794. >The overcast sky above Ponyville was the only thing you could see.
  795. >Rain had begun to fall down while you recovered.
  796. >Why did AJ, one of your best friends, do something like that to you?
  797. >It was enough to bring a tear to your eye.
  798. >If you were a pussy, of course.
  799. >Only pussies cry, and you're not a pussy.
  800. >Instead, you shouted into the rainy skies of Ponyville, as a way to let your emotions out.
  801. >After what felt like five minutes of you struggling to breathe, you slowly picked yourself up.
  802. >You thought of the Rape Shelter again.
  803. >You thought about Twilight.
  804. >Even if her laughter was rude at times, you'd love to hear her giggling right about now.
  805. >Thoughts of lunch with Rainbro filled your mind soon after, and you felt at peace.
  806.  
  807. >But the day is far from over.
  808. >You woke up today with a goal in mind, and by Celestia, you're going to accomplish it.
  809. >That, and you're not sure if you have the strength to walk to the castle right now.
  810. >A rest stop is in order regardless of what you do next.
  811. >Visiting Pinkie Pie should give you that little boost you need.
  812. >The trek to Sugarcube Corner, funnily enough, would be pretty short.
  813. >It felt like you ran a mile and a half back there.
  814. >Indeed, the walk didn't take very long.
  815. >Heavy knees landed onto the porch of Diabetes World(TM) as you collapsed.
  816. >It's funny.
  817. >You thought about how you haven't seen Fluttershy at all today.
  818. >Then you remembered that it doesn't really matter.
  819. >You're just not as safe as you think you are.
  820. >"Anonymous? My goodness...what happened to you?"
  821. >Was that Rarara just now?
  822. "R-Rarity?"
  823. >"Pinkie! Anonymous is here!"
  824. >Rarity was stood in the doorway, calling out to Pinkie inside.
  825. >You're so out of it that you didn't even hear the door swing open.
  826. "I-I'm good. Just had a nasty fall, that's it."
  827. >"...And you're soaking from head to toe! You poor thing! Quick, come inside!"
  828. >"Did somepony say SOAKING?!"
  829. >Somehow, even though Rarity shouted into the building for Pinkie, you heard her behind you.
  830. >Pinkie was standing on top of a cannon, and just as you turned your head, it went off.
  831. >You've been struck once again.
  832. >And this time, it was mostly painless.
  833. >Ponka fired a large assortment of towels and rags at you, blasting you past Rarity and into the building.
  834. >"Don't you think that's a bit much, darling?"
  835. >"What? Now he's all nice and dry!" Ponko replied, bringing her cannon back inside.
  836. >You popped your head out of the pile of cloth, before spitting a rag out of your mouth.
  837. "Gee. Thanks, Pinks."
  838. >"No problem, Nonny!"
  839. >It's nice to see she's not depressed and sleepless anymore.
  840. >She didn't want to talk about what Fluttershy did to her, but you're sure she'll open up eventually.
  841. >It can't be good to keep that kind of thing bottled up inside, you would know.
  842. >Still, you'll never fully understand this seemingly omnipotent pink horse.
  843.  
  844. >Standing up in the pile of rags and towels, you scanned the room for Pokemon(TM).
  845. >You expected to see her rolling her cannon around, but she was sitting at one of the booths.
  846. >And the cannon was nowhere to be seen.
  847. >Nothing makes sense anymore.
  848. >Being the mentally exhausted mess you currently are, you sat next to her in the booth.
  849. >Your legs were aching, your arms felt limp, and your sense of balance was off.
  850. >To be honest, you should have visited Nurse Redheart instead of coming here.
  851. >"You're so quiet today, Anon! What's up with that, huh, huh, huh?!"
  852. >"Indeed. It's a little unusual to see you like this. You look just as worn out as Pinkie was yesterday!"
  853. "Really? Am I usually full of energy or something?"
  854. >"Mmmm...I wouldn't say full of energy. More like..."
  855. >Rarity took a moment to gather her thoughts, sitting to your right in the booth.
  856. >"...Sociable! Every time I see you out in public, you're always sticking your neck out for somepony."
  857. >"Couldn't have said it better myself! You're a real talker, too!"
  858. >As you sat between the two mares, you leaned back, closed your eyes, and just stared into pitch-blackness.
  859. "I think you have me beat in that department, Panka."
  860. >"Well, duh! My cutie mark means a lot of things! There's more to a party than just gift hats, Nonny!"
  861. >There's more to a party than just gift hats.
  862. >Hearing that made you think for a second.
  863. >Namely about why you try so hard to make and keep all of these friends.
  864. >Are you making friends because you want companionship, or are you doing it just to have them?
  865. >Or just because you've got shit else to do in Horse Land?
  866. >Sometimes you feel lonely, despite being surrounded by so many technicolor horses.
  867. >Being the only one of your kind takes its tolls every so often.
  868. >And clearly, the friendships you have are real.
  869. >Of course they are.
  870. >You're not just some tall, bipedal monkey with a penis, right?
  871. >Your nose scrunched up as a grimace formed on your features.
  872. >"Anonymous? Is there something you want to tell us?"
  873. >You opened your eyes, looking over at Rarity to reassure her.
  874. "Rare, I'm alright. I promise..."
  875. >As soon as you spoke up, you felt the all-too familiar feeling of your fly unzipping.
  876. "...Huh?"
  877. >"Are you absolutely positive? You don't sound too sure, darling."
  878. >"Silly little Nonny-Wonny, looks like we'll just have to cheer you up!"
  879. "HUH?!"
  880.  
  881. >"Just relax, Anonymous. We all have our bad days. Be a doll and let us take care of you, hmm?"
  882. >You couldn't possibly HUH any harder than you already have.
  883. >Not a moment later, you felt it.
  884. >Or, them, to be precise.
  885. >Their heads had already been lowered, because they went to work.
  886. >And they went to work like they had a dying mother, a grandma with dementia, and starving kids to feed.
  887. >Your hand clutched the booth table hard enough to give yourself splinters.
  888. "HNNH..."
  889. >This can't be fucking real.
  890. >The last thing you heard was Pinkie's muffled speech.
  891. >"Rarithy, Rarithy, looth! Athom's phick ith cryith!"
  892. "...HNNNNNNNGGGGHHH-"
  893. >The entire world flipped upside down, and it felt like you were collapsing into yourself.
  894. >You saw flashing colors, lights of all kinds, stripes, patterns, and impossible geometry.
  895. >Everything combined into one big mass of "something", before it all went dark.
  896. >This otherworldly, powerful force blew through your body, as if you had just hit the drop on a roller coaster.
  897. >And then the lights came back on.
  898. >You were sat against a wall somewhere in Ponyville.
  899. >Upon closer inspection, it was one of the many homes littered throughout the town.
  900. >It's considerably dark outside, because not a single one of these homes have their lights on.
  901. >Even the lanterns following the dirt paths are unlit.
  902. >The only thing illuminating your surroundings is moonlight.
  903. >None of that is really important, though.
  904. >You're still trying to process everything that just happened.
  905. >If the world wasn't cruel enough to you already, it was about to get worse.
  906. >Oh, so much worse.
  907. >"Anon?! C-Come out, come out, wherever you are!"
  908. "Oh, it's Rainbow."
  909. >You don't know why you said that out loud.
  910. >Are you going fucking crazy?
  911. >"I HEARD THAT!"
  912. >Hearing her raise her voice so drastically "woke" you up.
  913. >Your hands have never sealed your mouth shut so fast in your life.
  914. >"W-Where are you, huh?! Y-You think you got what it takes to hide from your b-bro?"
  915. >Her voice sounded shaky, like she was determined to find you, and yet she sounded nervous at the same time.
  916. >"What goes around c-comes around, Anon! You can't get away with teasing m-me forever!"
  917. >The sound of dripping Water(TM) accompanied the noises Dash made while she searched every nearby nook and cranny.
  918. >But you're smarter than that.
  919. >That's not water.
  920. >If that was water, then you're motherfucking Santa Claus.
  921.  
  922. >"Ah-hah! FOUND YOU!"
  923. "R-Rainbow?!"
  924. >You shouted her name at the top of your lungs, for some reason.
  925. >It felt appropriate, like you had just been betrayed.
  926. >"Y-Yeah, keep saying my name! Just like that!"
  927. >She approached you on hoof, slowly.
  928. >And even though she wasn't going fast, you sensed this huge, fuck-off aura covering far more ground than she was.
  929. >She's so horny that she's manifested a Rape-Field(TM).
  930. >In other words, as long as you're within her range, you're fucked.
  931. >Electricity coursed through your body; The small hairs on your arms were standing on end.
  932. >Seemingly all of her blood had gone to her face, and you don't think you've ever seen a stronger blush before.
  933. >With slow, measured movements, you made sure to stand up as slowly as possible.
  934. >"D-Don't even think about it, pal."
  935. "You don't want this, Dash."
  936. >You spoke as calmly as you could, accentuating your words with your hands, like you were telling her to stay back.
  937. >"Oh, I do..."
  938. >She's licking her lips for Celestia's sake.
  939. "I don't want to have to do something I'll regret. So just-"
  940. >"Big w-words for somepony within bucking d-distance."
  941. >Your thoughts are moving a mile a minute.
  942. >Has it really come to this?
  943. >You're not even sure if anything of what's happening is real, but it sure as hell feels like it.
  944. >Once again, you repeat, where's the Almighty Rainbow God-Emperor Beam Of Holy Protection(TM) when you need it?
  945. >There's nothing you can do to change her mind, it seems.
  946. >That leaves only one option.
  947. "Well, that's a shame. I was hoping you'd be reasonable with me."
  948. >Your right hand reached into your back pocket, hovering over your Knife(TM).
  949. "...And now, you're going to have to fight your bro."
  950. >With the speed of about two and a half Fluttershy's in heat, you tossed the knife at Dash.
  951. >"WHA-"
  952. >She ducked the knife, as you expected her to.
  953. >There's no way your bro wouldn't know about your secret pocket knife.
  954. >But that's okay, because it did its job.
  955. >And you're already gone.
  956. >"D-Did you really just-"
  957. >Once again, you are LITERALLY Speed itself.
  958. >Can't stop winning.
  959. >"ggGGGRRAAGH! ANON! COME BACK HERE AND BUCK ME LIKE A MAN!"
  960.  
  961. >How cute.
  962. >She actually said the word.
  963. >Man(TM).
  964. >But now, you've got a problem on your hands.
  965. >You didn't think this far ahead, and you're running from a pony that can break the sound barrier.
  966. >How in Equestria were you going to escape something like that?
  967. >Applejack was strong, but she clearly held back when she Bonked(TM) you on the head.
  968. >Would you even be able to move after taking a full-speed tackle from Dash?
  969. >Because judging from the sound of wind whipping behind you, she's going into maximum overdrive.
  970. >You hit the deck and dodge rolled instinctively, dodging one of her passes.
  971. >All of those hours in Dark Souls(TM) are starting to pay off.
  972. >You had quite the moment of clarity after that.
  973. >Either go to Twilight's castle, or lose her somehow.
  974. >There's no way you're going to lose her off for very long, so that won't work.
  975. >And it would take too long to reach Twilight, you don't have that kind of time.
  976. >Not to mention the possibility of-
  977. >Mentally slapping yourself, you put the thought out of your mind before it spread like a wildfire.
  978. >At this point, that castle is your only chance.
  979. >Still, Rainbow is smart.
  980. >The same trick won't work on her twice.
  981. >Blue Fast is just as maneuverable as she is quick, and your juke shoes are NOT as good as hers.
  982. >Even after beating Dark Souls(TM), Dash still wins in the long run.
  983. >"You look like you're panicking over there, Anon! I thought you said you'd beat me!"
  984. "Overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer."
  985. >"I-Is that another one of your stupid "video game" references again?"
  986. "...How did you know that?"
  987. >"Are you kidding?! You sound like Twilight reading off a quote from a book!"
  988. >You raised your brow, nodding your head in agreement.
  989. >She had you there, honestly.
  990. >Even when she was in rape mode, Dash was still an absolute bro.
  991. >If it weren't for the fact that something extremely shady is up, you'd just let it happen.
  992. >What the hell are you thinking?
  993. >DEAR CELESTIA SHE'S GETTING IN YOUR HEAD
  994. >In your moment of mental anguish, you spotted what "might" be your savior out of the corner of your eye.
  995.  
  996. >Trixie's wagon.
  997. >No, not that wagon.
  998. >The other one.
  999. >You just so happened to know where she kept her smoke bombs, and the window was OPEN.
  1000. >"Rookie mistake, Anon! Don't let your opponent see where you're looking!"
  1001. "...Huh?"
  1002. >Oh shit.
  1003. >She's right.
  1004. >Your eyes totally moved to look over at Trixie's wagon.
  1005. >Once again, wrong wagon.
  1006. "Oh yeah? Well, how do you know I'm not just bullshitting you?"
  1007. >"Oh yeah?! Well, how do I know you're not bluffing?!"
  1008. >In a lot of ways, it feels like you're fighting yourself.
  1009. >And you don't like that.
  1010. >You had nothing to distract her this time, and you were in trouble.
  1011. >Suddenly, Dash darted after you once more.
  1012. "FU-"
  1013. >All you saw was a blur flying at you, but you had just enough time to turn your body slightly.
  1014. >You were blown away to the side of the street, right into Trixie's wagon.
  1015. >Your back slammed against the side of it, and the impact almost toppled the damn thing over.
  1016. >Applejack's lasso catching you by the gut paled in comparison to that tackle.
  1017. >Running your right hand over your left arm, you can tell it's not doing so good right now.
  1018. >As a matter of fact, you can hardly move it.
  1019. >It might actually be broken.
  1020. >On another note, Rainbow must have flown at you with 100% certainty that she'd hit.
  1021. >Like you said, overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.
  1022. >If you didn't know any better, you'd say that dash carried her out of Ponyville.
  1023. >But that's definitely not the case.
  1024. >She's got to be hitting a U-turn pretty soon.
  1025. >You had to grit your teeth through the pain, but you got back on your feet.
  1026. >Not wasting any time, your good arm reached into the window and flipped open a compartment.
  1027. >When your hand reached the bottom of it, your heart dropped.
  1028. >Out of disbelief, you kept digging around, but the compartment was empty.
  1029. >This is totally not good.
  1030. >To make matters worse, you felt a tug on your arm.
  1031. "W-Wha-"
  1032. >"Why, hello there, Anonymous. The Grrreat And Imaginary Trixie has decided to lend you her aid!"
  1033. >"Trixie" poked her head and neck out the window, causing you to back up in surprise.
  1034.  
  1035. >"...But only if you swear to serve me for eternity, in the afterlife."
  1036. "If you can get me to Twilight's castle, I'll eat your fucking ass until the end of ti-"
  1037. >"Trixie accepts! Now, get in!"
  1038. >Fearing that you might be making a huge mistake, you hesitate to hop into the wagon.
  1039. >Not a moment later, you heard an earth-shaking boom in the distance.
  1040. >That was Rainbow turning around.
  1041. "A-Alright, okay, okay! Just... forget what I said about the ass eating thing, okay?"
  1042. >"A deal is a deal, Anonymous."
  1043. "Ughhh..."
  1044. >You groaned, cursing your terrible luck, before hopping in through the window.
  1045. >That certainly didn't do your aching body and possibly broken arm any favors.
  1046. >"Blast off!"
  1047. "B-Blast off?"
  1048. >You almost flipped upside down when the wagon suddenly blasted into the open air with magic.
  1049. >"BEHOLD! THE GREAT AND IMAGINARY TRIXIE'S POWER!"
  1050. >Trixie shouted at the top of her lungs, meanwhile, you were shouting at the top of your lungs.
  1051. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-"
  1052. >If you were still on the ground, you'd have seen Rainbow whizzing by where the wagon once stood.
  1053. >"D-Darnit! How the hay did I miss?! Where did he-"
  1054. >And you would have seen the priceless look on her face as she saw Trixie's Wagon(TM) in the sky.
  1055. >Eventually, you stopped screaming long enough to look out of the window.
  1056. >The view was breathtaking.
  1057. >You could see Ponyville down below, Everfree Forest, hell, you could even see Canterlot.
  1058. "Whoaaah..."
  1059. >Your precious moment of child-like wonder was interrupted by two alicorns.
  1060. >It was enough to make you rub your eyes to be sure you weren't seeing things.
  1061. >Celestia and Luna were flying beside the wagon.
  1062. >Time seemingly slowed down as Luna turned to wink at you, before speeding back up.
  1063. >Then, the two of them were gone in a flash.
  1064. >You craned your neck out the window, searching for where they could have went.
  1065. >Nothing.
  1066. >The wagon took a nosedive, and you weren't prepared for it in the slightest.
  1067. >By completely ignoring the laws of physics, because Magic(TM), it made it to the ground almost instantly.
  1068. >Magic is magic, but you're surprised that every bone in your body didn't break from that.
  1069. >Unfortunately, you're about to fucking hurl.
  1070. "Oooogghh..."
  1071. >"Go on, Anonymous. Trixie has business to attend to."
  1072. "...Yeah, yeah, I'm sure you do..."
  1073. >You climbed out the window of Trixie's wooden, magical death-trap, and pathetically flopped on your ass.
  1074. "Fuck!"
  1075. >Everything hurts.
  1076.  
  1077. >"I'd hurry inside if I were you. I bet she's on her way over here right now. Toodles."
  1078. >Without a second of delay, Trixie and her wagon immediately peaced the fuck out.
  1079. >None of this is real; There's no conceivable way that any of this nonsense is real.
  1080. >You winced in pain, picking yourself up off the ground.
  1081. >There was nothing left to do but to limp your way up the stairs.
  1082. >The doors were open for you and everything.
  1083. >A comforting, heavenly light from inside pierced the darkness of the night.
  1084. >Trixie kept her word and brought you right in front of Twi's castle.
  1085. >You're in for quite the ride when you pass on to the afterlife, it seems.
  1086. >Once again, why does this always happen to you?
  1087. >"ANON!"
  1088. >You heard Rainbow scream your name from behind you, and you didn't dare turn around.
  1089. >No looking back.
  1090. >The light temporarily blinded you once you stepped inside.
  1091. >When your eyes finished adjusting, you saw her.
  1092. >Twilight.
  1093. >She stood there, waiting there for you like some kind of guardian angel.
  1094. >Dropping to your knees, still holding your ruined arm, you almost cried.
  1095. >Again, crying is for pussies.
  1096. "Twilight..."
  1097. >She didn't say anything back, but you wanted her to respond.
  1098. >You wanted her to say something, anything to acknowledge your presence.
  1099. "T-Twilight."
  1100. >It's getting harder and harder not to be a pussy.
  1101. "I think I need a hug...I..."
  1102. >Your head tilted back, as you fought off the tears.
  1103. "...I'm scared! I don't know what the hell is going on, and I'm terrified!"
  1104. "Everypony except Lyra and Trixie turned on me today, and I-"
  1105. >"Don't worry, Anon. I hear you loud and clear."
  1106. >She finally replied.
  1107. >An almost stupid-looking smile grew on your features, but it didn't last long.
  1108. >Soon, a magical force more powerful than every muscle in your body forced you to the cold floor.
  1109. "W-Wha...Twi?"
  1110. >Twilight came closer, but like earlier, she wouldn't reply.
  1111. "TWI?!"
  1112. >Your voice was breaking by this point.
  1113. >All the warmth you felt was ripped from you in an instant.
  1114. >Cold air greeted your shaking legs as your pants were removed.
  1115. >"It must have been chilly out there. I've got the perfect thing to keep you warm."
  1116. >You recall thinking that you absolutely would, but you didn't mean it like this.
  1117. >Twilight turned around, and you powerlessly stared your fate in the eyes.
  1118.  
  1119. >Except there were no eyes to be found there, but there was definitely some winking.
  1120. >The Limited Edition Horse Pussy(TM), and a Large Ponut(TM).
  1121. >And as Twilight sat down, Anon Jr. did the exact opposite.
  1122. >He got up.
  1123. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-"
  1124. >Screaming into the once silent confines of your room, you woke up with a start.
  1125. >You were in bed, your lower half underneath the covers.
  1126. >Sweat was rolling down just about every part of you.
  1127. >It felt disgusting, but you were focused on something else.
  1128. >Looking over at your calender, you could see the dates.
  1129. >The cross on the 20th was missing.
  1130. >It's still the 21st.
  1131. >The air in the room may as well have been fake, because it wasn't doing its job.
  1132. >Your breathing was ragged, and your poor lungs were working double time.
  1133. "Hnnnghh..."
  1134. >Falling onto your side, your head landed on the bed sheets.
  1135. >Nothing is sacred anymore, apparently.
  1136. >You're confused.
  1137. >You still don't have any answers.
  1138. >You're afraid to go outside.
  1139. >The tough guy act can only work for so long.
  1140. >A harrowing scenario snuck itself into your scared little mind.
  1141. >What if nothing changes?
  1142. >What if you stepped outside right now and it all happened again?
  1143. >Do any of these "friends" actually care about you, or are they just horny animals?
  1144. >You were moments away from becoming a certified Pussy(TM), but something stopped you.
  1145. >The sound of flickering flames and crinkling paper filled the room.
  1146. >Getting up from your miserable "I'm About To Fucking Cry" position, you looked to see what caused it.
  1147. >It was a rolled up parchment resting on top of your legs.
  1148. >You were doubtful, but there's really no mistaking what that is.
  1149. >And just to see if all of that truly was a dream, you raised your left arm to grab the letter.
  1150.  
  1151. >No problems so far.
  1152. >After unrolling the parchment, you began reading its contents.
  1153. >For authenticity, you imagined Spike reading the letter to you.
  1154. >"Dear Anon. I'm sure you're probably wondering why I sent a letter to you, and not Twilight."
  1155. >"I've been doing a lot of thinking, and I want to hear your opinion about something."
  1156. >"Do you remember that forest just outside Neighagra Falls?"
  1157. >"You know, the one you and I had a camping trip in? Could you meet me there?"
  1158. >"If it's not too much trouble, of course. Oh, and don't bring anypony else with you."
  1159. >"I'm sure you have questions, but I'll tell you everything when you get here."
  1160. >"Think of it like a second camping trip, okay? Make sure to come prepared!"
  1161. >"And yes, before you even think about it, I've got food!"
  1162. >"Your dragon bro, Spike."
  1163. >While you were reading, you asked yourself if this is from the REAL Spike, or some fake, dream Spike.
  1164. >Even after everything you've been through, that one little thought fucked you up.
  1165. >The fact that that's a genuine question you have to ask scares the shit out of you.
  1166. >It brought everything full circle.
  1167. >To think that all of this started because of some stupid, yellow rapist.
  1168. >In a moment of weakness, you caught yourself shedding tears.
  1169. >You're such a fucking pussy.
  1170. >After wiping the tears away, and hopping out of bed, you opened up your wardrobe.
  1171. >Spike said not to bring anypony else with you, so you can't leave this letter here.
  1172. >Not even in the trash.
  1173. >Unless you burned it or something.
  1174. >You opted to simply fold it into the left back pocket of your jeans.
  1175. >Your handy-dandy pocket knife is sleeping soundly in the right one, as it should be.
  1176. >Honestly, you didn't think you'd ever see it again after tossing it at Dash.
  1177. >The same goes for the belt you left at the dream-version of Sweet Apple Acres.
  1178. >There's so many questions you want to ask each of them before you go.
  1179. >Minus Fluttershy, of course.
  1180. >But especially for Rainbow.
  1181. >And Twilight.
  1182. >You just want to know if they're really real or not.
  1183. >If they care about you or not.
  1184. >Maybe this little camping trip will give you some much needed fresh air.
  1185. >It's time to put on your brave face.
  1186.  
  1187. _
  1188.  
  1189. >21.5th.
  1190. >Taking extra care not to be spotted by any of the Mane 6, you stopped by Taco Del Pone.
  1191. >With a bit of smooth talking, you could procure yourself some Meat-Substitute(TM) for the road.
  1192. >Sometime before all of this rapey business with Fluttershy started, Derpy gave you a gift.
  1193. >It was a brown satchel bag, and it'd be perfect for this "camping trip."
  1194. >"Hi, welcome to Taco Del Pone! What can I get for y-"
  1195. >"...Oh Celestia, it's that monkey again..."
  1196. "Hey, miss, can I ask you something real quick?"
  1197. >"Hurry up and make an order, you freak. You've got a whole line of ponies behind you."
  1198. >A whole line of ponies?
  1199. >Also, did she just call you a freak?
  1200. >"Sorry, everypony! We're having some delays, but I promise I'll take care of you!"
  1201. >She almost sounded upset with you, but her voice changed instantly when addressing the customers.
  1202. >Must be one of those "customer service" skills or something.
  1203. >After whipping your head around to confirm, you saw a full line of hungry ponies behind you.
  1204. >It's called fast food for a reason, so you shouldn't be surprised, but you literally JUST came in.
  1205. >"Psst, hey, Anon! Anoooon!"
  1206. >Another horse acquaintance of yours, Minuette, waved hello to you at the back of the line.
  1207. "Hi, Minuette..."
  1208. >You waved back with an awkward smile; You're always feeling out of place in this Horse World.
  1209. >"AHHEEMM."
  1210. >The counter mare cleared her sassy little throat, snapping you back to her.
  1211. "Oh, my bad, got distracted."
  1212. >Looking her over, she had a white mane, similar to Lyra's in style, with a single streak of black.
  1213. >Her gray, bored looking eyes stared straight into your soul.
  1214. >Since you're so much taller than the counter, you could peek over and see her cutie mark.
  1215. >From what you can tell, this is a cerified Fast Food Horse.
  1216. >You could see what looked to be a small container of fries on her flank.
  1217. >Her name tag read "Sassy Service."
  1218. >Sounds about right.
  1219. >You looked left and right to make sure nopony else nearby would hear what you were about to whisper.
  1220. "Show me the meats."
  1221. >She doesn't seem to be very fond of your presence at all, and looked at you like you were crazy.
  1222. >"The... what now?"
  1223. "Show me your Meat-Substitute. I'll buy some of it off of you, if you don't mind."
  1224. >"So many weirdos in this town, I swear..."
  1225.  
  1226. >She brought a hoof to her forehead, stepping into the back of the kitchen.
  1227. >"Trixie, take over for me, please. You, big dumb monkey, follow me into the back."
  1228. >"I-I'M ON IT!"
  1229. >To your surprise, Trixie ran up to the counter, and she was positively sweating bullets.
  1230. "Trixie? What the fuck are you doing here?"
  1231. >"O-Oh, well, if you must know, Trixie is running a little low on funds."
  1232. "Your performances haven't been going so well, have they?"
  1233. >"SSHHHH! Do you want everypony in the building to know that?!" Trixie hissed at you, trying to keep it down.
  1234. >This is fucking priceless.
  1235. >She's a part-time Wagie(TM) now.
  1236. >You feel the strongest urge to point and laugh right in her face, but that would be mean.
  1237. >You're just as rude as Twilight is, sometimes.
  1238. >Either way, it's nice to see that Dream Trixie and Real Trixie are exactly the same.
  1239. >"Get lost, will you?! If you couldn't tell, we're shortstaffed right now!"
  1240. "Ok, ok, I'll leave you to it... Oh, and it's nice seeing you."
  1241. >"Yeah, yeah, just... get outta' here!" Trixie had a bit of a blush on her face after that.
  1242. >Running behind the corner after the yellow-coated sassy mare, you left Trixie to her own devices.
  1243. >"Anon, is it? What took you so long? Show me the bits."
  1244. >You unzipped your hoodie, reaching inside of it like you were a drug dealer or something.
  1245. >Once you pulled out a small bag of bits, bursting at the seams with coin, her tune changed.
  1246. >"And how many containers of Meat-Substitute would you like to buy?"
  1247. >She sounded all cutesy out of nowhere, it shocked you.
  1248. "Mmmm...Five."
  1249. >"Thank you, sir! That'll be fifteen bits!"
  1250. >HHNNNGHHH
  1251. >Her customer service voice does things to you.
  1252. >Sassy's horn glowed with a golden tint, and a nearby door swung open.
  1253. >Soon, five cans of Meat-Substitute were levitated over to you.
  1254. >After handing her the bits, she proudly took them, and the cans were yours.
  1255. >You shoved all five of them into your satchel before thanking her.
  1256. "Pleasure doing business with you."
  1257. >"Likewise. Now scram. I've gotta' get back to Trixie. She won't last long by herself."
  1258. >As soon as business was conducted, she went back to being unhospitable.
  1259. >Did she have to be so brutal about it?
  1260. "Can I see you again sometime? If that's alright?"
  1261. >"Hmph. You aren't broke, so maybe when I'm not on shift. Come by at closing time and we'll talk."
  1262. >Two-faced, shrewd AND sassy?
  1263. >She called you a freak earlier, but even so, you think you like this mare.
  1264. >Without a doubt in your mind, you feel she'd make a great friend.
  1265. >It's totally not because you're attracted to sassy girls or anything.
  1266. >Heavens no.
  1267. "Sure thing! I'm... uh... going on a trip, and I'm not sure when I'll be back, but I'll see you when I do!"
  1268. >"Whatever. Do me a favor and go out the back door, will you?"
  1269. >You flashed a thumbs up at her and she simply rolled her eyes in response.
  1270.  
  1271. >Sassy returned to the counter, and Trixie smiled as if Celestia herself came to save her.
  1272. >Taking your leave out the back door of Taco Del Pone, you chuckled from a funny thought.
  1273. >How would Trixie react if you told her about the deal you made with her dream version?
  1274. >Your business here was done for now, though.
  1275. >The next task is to head to the Ponyville train station.
  1276. >You don't want to miss the train going to Manehattan, but you'll have to take the back streets.
  1277. >Or roads, to be precise.
  1278. >You wouldn't want to walk around in plain sight, Fluttershy could be watching and waiting.
  1279. >Then, you'll hop on board, get as close to you can to Neighagra Falls, and hop off.
  1280. >The train going to Manehattan should just about get you where you need to go.
  1281. >And all of your supplies seem to be in order.
  1282. >An electric lantern, a few batteries, your Knife(TM), a canteen of water, and five cans of Meat-Substitute(TM).
  1283. >Thinking back to the contents of Spike's letter, he said to make sure you didn't bring anypony else.
  1284. >You still don't know what this is about, but whatever he wants to talk to you about must be important.
  1285. >Arriving at the camping spot "shouldn't" be an issue.
  1286. >Assuming you don't get attacked by any the local wild-life.
  1287. >Those forests are nowhere near as hostile to you as Everfree, so it "should" be fine.
  1288. >Telling any of the Mane 6 where you're headed is a no-no.
  1289. >Especially Fluttershy.
  1290. >If she isn't stalking you already, that is.
  1291. >Speaking of Peanut Flutter Cups, it's a bit creepy how she didn't crop up in that dream a single time.
  1292. >And on the topic of that dream, you never got that hug you wanted from Twilight.
  1293. >Dream Ponka's words, just before the Super Mega Ultra Double Sloppy Toppy 3,000(TM), really made you think.
  1294. >You never expected a horse, especially one like Pinkie, to say something so profound.
  1295. >And even if it's a coping mechanism, maybe you should stop giving traumatizing events funny names.
  1296. >But perhaps you shouldn't joke so much about Rarity and Pinkie Pie sucking your cock while you were depressed.
  1297. >During your inner monologue, you weren't paying attention to how far you've gone.
  1298. >The train station was right across the way.
  1299. >As you closed the distance to the ticket window, you spotted two ponies.
  1300. >Twilight and Rainbow Dash.
  1301. >They weren't aware you were nearby, and were having a chat as they walked together.
  1302. >Twi was eating a massive hayburger as she walked, because she's fat, and Dash was laughing.
  1303. >Whatever she was laughing at, it must have been pretty damn funny.
  1304. >She did that adorable thing where she flew upside down while dying of laughter.
  1305. "HNNNNNGHHH-"
  1306. >You pressed your hands over your mouth, silencing yourself.
  1307. >Dash and Twiggles both knew of your signature noises.
  1308. >Now isn't the time to blow your cover.
  1309. >You wanted to walk with them so badly.
  1310.  
  1311. >Would it be so bad if you just said hello?
  1312. >It's not like they could ever know exactly where you're headed.
  1313. >Before long, they were almost out of sight, and you caught yourself stretching an arm out to them.
  1314. >You've got to apologize to Dash about throwing your Knife(TM) at her, even if it was the dream verson.
  1315. >"Anon?! A-Are you following me or something?"
  1316. >A mare shouted to you from somewhere nearby.
  1317. >It sounded like it came from Trixie, as little sense as that made.
  1318. "Trixie?"
  1319. >"Over here!"
  1320. >You were looking everywhere but the ticket window, and that's where she was.
  1321. "What the fuck? Weren't you just at Taco Del Pone with Sassy?"
  1322. >"I-I got off work, and then I came here for my...um...s-second...job."
  1323. >Trixie didn't look so Great and Powerful(TM) at the moment.
  1324. >This must be super embarrassing for her.
  1325. >But it's funny as fuck for you.
  1326. >She must have clocked out at the EXACT same time you left, and then got here before you.
  1327. >Sassy must have dismissed her when she went back to the counter.
  1328. "By the way, I'm not following you. I'm just here to buy a ticket to Manehattan."
  1329. "And how many part-time jobs do you even have?"
  1330. >She looked ridiculous sitting in there with that big, dumb wizard hat on.
  1331. >"J-Just these two! I'm not struggling THAT badly!"
  1332. "Rrrriight. Of course you're not."
  1333. >You gave her an absolutely diabolical, dubious smirk.
  1334. >"You're enjoying this, aren't you?!"
  1335. "Yep."
  1336. >"Somehuman sounds like he doesn't need a ticket!"
  1337. "I'll get your manager."
  1338. >Her face practically shrunk as she leaned backwards defensively, eyes wide.
  1339. >"Forget I said anything..."
  1340. >Pulling the bag of bits out of your hoodie again, you tossed the whole thing to her.
  1341. "One ticket to Manehattan, please."
  1342. >"W-What's the meaning of this? Are you trying to insult me?"
  1343. "Just take it, Trix. I'm trying to be generous."
  1344. >"You don't have to do that! How many bits are in that bag?"
  1345. "Mmmm... should be 85 after what I spent at Taco Del Pone."
  1346. >"85?! I couldn't possibly-"
  1347. "Trixie, it's yours. Don't worry about me. I'm rich as fuck."
  1348. >Her magic took hold of the bag, and dragged it through the ticket window hole.
  1349. >"Anon, I..."
  1350.  
  1351. "Don't start crying on me, you big blue baby."
  1352. >"I-I was NOT about to cry! The Great and Powerful Trixie does not-"
  1353. >You raised your brow at Trix, giving her an incredulous look.
  1354. >"...Ahem."
  1355. >"Here's your ticket. The train should be here in about..."
  1356. >You could already hear it approaching before she even finished.
  1357. >Your timing is flawless, as always.
  1358. "Thank you, Ms. Lulamoon. I'll think I'll eat your ass later or something."
  1359. >"WHAT?!"
  1360. >Her reaction was so perfect that you instantly burst into laughter.
  1361. >You took a seat on the bench beside the window, just outside her field of view.
  1362. >"E-Explain yourself, Anon! This instant!"
  1363. >You've never heard her this flustered before.
  1364. "No... I don't think I will. Think I'll just sit here and wait until it's time to depart."
  1365. >"You don't just say things like that to a mare!"
  1366. "Why not?"
  1367. >"B-Because..."
  1368. "Go on?"
  1369. >You're enjoying this too much, but it's fine.
  1370. >You now realize just how good things actually were before that horrifying dream.
  1371. >Maybe seeing Blubbercry act like a monster from a horror movie triggered it.
  1372. >Her animalistic gaze every time you looked outside of the Rape Shelter(TM) didn't help.
  1373. >And you're never going to forget the way she ran after you.
  1374. >After a few more minutes of dealing with an embarrassed Trixie, it was time to go.
  1375. "Alright, Trix. Gotta' go. Hopefully your situation will change soon."
  1376. >"I'd hope so! The Grrrreat and Powerful Trixie has more important matters to attend to!"
  1377. "If there's anyway I can help in the future, let me know. Later."
  1378. >"You've helped enough already, Anon. Thanks..."
  1379. >It's always nice hearing actual words of appreciation from Trixie.
  1380. >You took a seat inside an empty train car, got comfortable, and looked outside a nearby window.
  1381. >With lingering thoughts about the events of that dream, you closed your eyes for a little nap.
  1382. >Applejack must be wondering where you are right now.
  1383. >The real AJ would never do something as heinous as dream AJ, you truly believe that.
  1384. >Eventually, you nodded off, snoozing while thinking about tradwife Appul Horse.
  1385.  
  1386. >Stupid Anon.
  1387. >How dare he say something like that so casually?
  1388. >It's just him trying to mess with you, the same as it ever was, but something was different.
  1389. >This time, however, it felt like he knew something you didn't.
  1390. >Have you made a terrible mistake of some kind?
  1391. >As you pondered Anon's actions in your Great and Powerful monologue, a yawn escaped your lips.
  1392. >Is this how it feels to be a common worker?
  1393. >That overflowing bag of bits would come in handy for bringing your stage tricks back up to snuff.
  1394. >Where did he get that kind of money from?
  1395. >Your eyes were watery from the repeated yawning; They kept trying to close themselves.
  1396. >Would it be so bad if you just took a quick nap?
  1397. >As long as your manager doesn't catch you, nothing could go wrong.
  1398. >You're only in for three hours today anyway.
  1399. >To look like you were awake to anypony coming by, you started napping while sitting upright.
  1400. >Unfortunately, your poor sleep has caused you to develop a snoring problem.
  1401. >About ten minutes had passed, and you were already in dreamland, talking to Starlight.
  1402. >You've missed her presence a lot while she's been away at the Crystal Empire for the past two months.
  1403. >Anon being around has made her absence so much more bearable.
  1404. >Even if you don't want to admit it, if Starlight is your girl crush, then Anon is your boy crush.
  1405. >There's something refreshing about him that you can't place your hoof on.
  1406. >He's always so nice, yet he's constantly getting under your skin, and he's so unpredictable.
  1407. >It's never boring around him, and if there's one thing you hate, it's boredom.
  1408. >A smile grew on your sleeping snout as you dreampt happily.
  1409. >KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
  1410. "H-Huh? Whuh?! How can I help you?!"
  1411. >Dear Celestia, please don't be your manager.
  1412. >Once your eyes readjusted, you saw that it was actually Fluttershy.
  1413. "F-Fluttershy? How nice to see you! Are you here to buy a ticket?"
  1414. >"You know why I'm here, Trixie."
  1415. "W-What?"
  1416. >"I tracked Anon's scent all the way over here, he was here, I know it."
  1417. "Tracked his scent? Are you... stalking him?"
  1418.  
  1419. >"Which train did he take? Start spilling the beans, or you're gonna' g-get it."
  1420. >You've never heard Fluttershy "demand" something of somepony before, not like this.
  1421. "Hmph. Your threats don't intimidate a pony as powerful as I."
  1422. >You're unsure why she'd be following Anon, but it doesn't sound like she's up to anything good.
  1423. >After your standoff, she flew in front of the window and turned around.
  1424. >Your pupils shrank as her rear end was pressed up against the glass, tail raised.
  1425. >"Don't make me come in there. I'll... I'll defile you if I have to."
  1426. >Defile you?
  1427. >Her wet mare bits were in plain view, as she took up the entire window.
  1428. "I-I repeat, your threats are empty!"
  1429. >To your absolute terror, she pried herself off the wet glass, and disappeared.
  1430. "W-Wait, where are you-"
  1431. >The door to the booth flew wide open; You shrieked as Fluttershy ran inside.
  1432. >"D-Don't say I didn't warn you!"
  1433. "FLUTTERSHY, WAIT! WAI-"
  1434. >Ignoring your cries, she tackled you to the booth's floor, knocking your hat off.
  1435. >Before you knew it, all was darkness.
  1436. >Fluttershy's flanks were seated firmly against your face.
  1437. >Her scent is incredibly strong, it's almost overpowering.
  1438. >And by Celestia, she's anything but petite.
  1439. >How many pounds are on this pudgy mare's ass?
  1440. >You struggled underneath her, but alas, it was all in vain.
  1441. >Copious amounts of grool soaked your face as the surprisingly strong mare smothered you.
  1442. >"I've got all day, Trixie. T-Tell me... Mmmff... where Anon went."
  1443. >Between her words, she let out a moan of pleasure.
  1444. >She's not playing games.
  1445. >"I-I've got ways to make you talk."
  1446. >At all.
  1447. "MMMMMMGGHH-"
  1448. >"What was that? I-I couldn't hear you."
  1449. >For a moment, she didn't sound so threatening, only curious to hear your muffled words.
  1450. "MmmmMMHHH!"
  1451. >"Sorry, say it one more time?"
  1452. "MMMNNHTTNNN!"
  1453. >Fluttershy gasped, finally realizing what you said.
  1454. >"Manehattan?"
  1455. "Mmmhmm..."
  1456. >The yellow pegasus climbed off of you, and you could see the light of day once more.
  1457. >You coughed a bit, trying to gather yourself.
  1458. "N-Now, could you PLEASE tell me why you're looking for-"
  1459. >She was gone and out the door before you could even finish.
  1460. >You sat upright, looking stupid with Fluttershy's juices and musk on your face.
  1461. >As much as you hate to say it, that wasn't such a bad experience.
  1462. >There's seriously something wrong with you for enjoying that.
  1463. "Mother of Celestia, why me...?"
  1464.  
  1465. >Your feet hit the ground as you hopped off the train, and re-adjusted your satchel strap.
  1466. >You had to ask to the conductor to kindly stop and let you off.
  1467. >He obliged, so now it's time to start heading towards the camping spot.
  1468. >You're not very far at all, you can see the forest up ahead, as well as Neighagra Falls.
  1469. >"Bye, Anon. Hope you enjoy your trip."
  1470. >Maud, in her almost robotic tone of voice, said goodbye to you from inside the train.
  1471. >On your way up to the conductor, you spotted her looking out the window.
  1472. >There wasn't any harm in saying hello to her, so that's exactly what you did.
  1473. "Will do, Rocky. Maybe I'll drop by your farm one of these days."
  1474. "We can have a rock date. Y'know, to show me your rocks and stuff."
  1475. >"Sounds great."
  1476. >The train car door closed as you waved goodbye to Maud.
  1477. >It was time to get going.
  1478. >Last night, specifically your dream, was a bummer.
  1479. >A little more than a bummer, honestly.
  1480. >Almost all of your friends became Fluttershy 2, 3, 4, and 5.0.
  1481. >But after making a new friend, and doing something nice for Trixie, you feel significantly better.
  1482. >With a spring in your step, you started jogging towards the entrance to the forest.
  1483. >You and Spike knew that particular conductor pretty well ever since the last time you went camping.
  1484. >On the train's way back to Ponyville, you'll probably just do what you did last time.
  1485. >Coming back to the same tracks, waving as the train rolls by, and hopping onboard.
  1486. >Train conductors are such bros.
  1487. >After a few minutes of jogging, you were just outside the forest near Neighagra Falls.
  1488. >Rainbow has been making sure you stay in shape and it's definitely showing.
  1489. >You feel like you could run a marathon right now, you're so amped up.
  1490. >However, the last thing you should do is make a big fuss running around in the woods.
  1491. >For one, you don't want to alert every single nearby animal to your presence.
  1492. >You can't risk a repeat of the Everfree incident, even if these woods are much less dangerous.
  1493. >And two, you might seriously hurt yourself.
  1494. >If you remember right, the camping spot is at a fairly high elevation.
  1495. >You wouldn't want to accidentally trip up on a steep incline, roll, and get fucked up.
  1496. >Or die, for that matter.
  1497. >Rainbow would never recover from it.
  1498. >Also, if there's one thing your father made sure to pass on to you, it's that dying is gay.
  1499. >That old coot couldn't die even if he wanted to, he's just that stubborn.
  1500. >Kind of like you.
  1501.  
  1502. >The trek to the camping spot went about as normally as you expected it to.
  1503. >It's been a minute, but you think you remember the exact path to take.
  1504. >Similar to the way it was in your dream, the sky was overcast.
  1505. >That's not definitely not ominous or anything.
  1506. >The light drizzling of water droplets had already begun.
  1507. >The ground beneath you was wet, but far from muddy.
  1508. >Not yet, anyway.
  1509. >Reaching into your satchel, you pulled out a can of Meat-Substitute(TM).
  1510. >The lid came right off thanks to the convenient pull-tab.
  1511. >Your eyes were blessed by the delectable imitation meat therein.
  1512. >Like an insane person, you turned the can upside down and just started wolfing it down.
  1513. >It's so FUCKING GOOD.
  1514. >You couldn't stop eating the stuff even if you tried.
  1515. >The can was empty after a minute or two of chewing, along with some water from your canteen to wash it down.
  1516. >You're not a filthy litterer, so you shoved the empty can back in your satchel.
  1517. >Best fifteen bits you've ever spent, period.
  1518. >After hopping over a fallen tree, the all too familiar sound of rustling graced your ears.
  1519. >The momentary Meat-Substitute-induced joy you felt was cut short after hearing that.
  1520. >Like always, you whipped your head around to scan the area.
  1521. >Nothing.
  1522. >Pure silence.
  1523. >It was raining a little harder by now, and wind was beginning to whip at your body.
  1524. >Could have been a broken branch falling, or a little critter hiding from the rain or something.
  1525. >Still, the fact that you're feeling a breeze this strong is a little worrying.
  1526.  
  1527. >You're in a forest after all, a very thick one at that.
  1528. >It's nothing like the comparatively light winds you felt in the outskirts of Ponyville, during in your dream.
  1529. >This is much stronger.
  1530. >If there's a big storm coming, you, and this camping trip might be fucked.
  1531. >The storms in Equestria are absolutely ridiculous.
  1532. >Hopefully Spike is okay.
  1533. >And in a matter of seconds, you went from worrying about Spike, to worrying about yourself.
  1534. >Because something just crawled up your leg.
  1535. "WHA-"
  1536. >It's a fucking raccoon, an aggressive one at that.
  1537. "Shoo! Shoo, get the fuck out of here!"
  1538. >Swatting at it didn't do anything, and you couldn't get a hold of the damn thing.
  1539. >It was trying to get inside of your satchel, most likely to steal a can of Meat-Substitute(TM) from you.
  1540. >During your battle with the relentless trash panda, not much attention was paid to your footing.
  1541. >The raccoon suddenly hopped off of you, meanwhile, you had your back to a hill.
  1542. "OH! Shit, shit, shit!"
  1543. >The decline was sharp, so as soon as you lost your balance, you went tumbling down.
  1544. >On the way down, you fell through a few bushes, hit a few rocks, and much, much more.
  1545. >A tree eventually blocked your descent, but this was hardly a fortunate collision.
  1546. >Your back slammed into the trunk of the tree and your head was hit considerably hard.
  1547. >The world and everything in it was positively spinning.
  1548. >Your satchel rolled down the hill after you as your eyes started closing themselves.
  1549. >Coming here may or may not have been a horrible idea.
  1550. >Sleepy-time was upon you; You couldn't resist any longer as your muscles relaxed.
  1551. >You laid against the tree, unconscious, and getting rained on as the incoming storm developed.
  1552. >In hindsight, you probably shouldn't have opened up that can of Meat-Substitute(TM) when you did.
  1553.  
  1554. "AGH!"
  1555. >You woke up with a start, seemingly in an instant after passing out, and scrambled around.
  1556. >Your hands instinctively searched every nook and cranny of your body to check for damages.
  1557. >Somehow, you didn't feel any bruises, cuts, or anything like that.
  1558. >You didn't feel any pain at all.
  1559. >As a matter of fact, you felt quite unusual.
  1560. >Soon, you realized you were no longer in the forest beside Neighagra Falls.
  1561. >After looking around, you'd say you were in Canterlot Castle, on one of its many balconies.
  1562. >Standing on your feet, you looked up to see the moon shining brilliantly in the sky.
  1563. >Looks like it's night-time.
  1564. >Why are you here of all places, though?
  1565. >Were you dreaming again?
  1566. >"Hello, Anonymous."
  1567. >A voice belonging to none other than Celestia rang out from behind you.
  1568. >Once again, you whipped your head around to look.
  1569. >Your head is going to twist right the fuck off these days.
  1570. >It was indeed Celestia, cantering slowly towards you.
  1571. >You had a dumb, confused look on your face, but she looked as calm and elegant as ever.
  1572. >It's been one thing after another lately, back to back to back to back, and then some.
  1573. "S-Sunbutt?"
  1574. >She giggled in response to your rude, yet appropriate nickname.
  1575. >You'll never get used to her voice.
  1576. >The literal voice of a goddess, heavenly, and motherly.
  1577. >"You can never decide on one name to call a mare, can you?"
  1578. >"One day, your special somepony might get upset if they catch you nicknaming other mares."
  1579. "Pfft. Who said I was going to have a special somepony?"
  1580. >"Oh, I'm sure you will, Anonymous. You're quite the popular character."
  1581. "Yeah. A little too popular for my own good."
  1582. >"Better to have than to have not, don't you agree?"
  1583. "I suppose so."
  1584. >"And you are certainly not lacking in blessings."
  1585. >"You have a wonderful gift, Anon. I'm sure you'll find out what it is soon."
  1586. "Mmhmm, I'm sure I do."
  1587. "Also, what's with you types being so cryptic all the time?"
  1588. >"What type would that be, Anonymous? Am I your favorite?"
  1589. "You know that's not an easy question to answer, Sunbutt."
  1590. >"I see that my pupil has taught you a thing or two."
  1591. "Maybe you and her have too much in common, ever thought of that?"
  1592. >Once again, she merely giggles at your witty responses.
  1593. >Sunny D(TM) walked past you, her multi-colored flowing mane sparkling with magic.
  1594. >Or whatever the hell it is.
  1595. >As she passed you, you got a whiff of the most intense mare stench.
  1596. >Breathing that stuff in will surely drive you insane, so you promptly turned your head away.
  1597. >And it seems Twilight and Celestia have yet another thing in common.
  1598. >Fat horse asses.
  1599.  
  1600. >One can't stop eating burgers, and the other can't stop eating cake.
  1601. >"I can sense you staring, Mr. Anonymous."
  1602. >Every last one of these horses are cheaters, you swear.
  1603. "How am I NOT supposed to look? You ponies trot around nude all the time!"
  1604. "If you couldn't tell, public nudity is a crime where I come from, so..."
  1605. >"Still haven't gotten used to seeing bare flanks, I presume?"
  1606. >You're not a fan of where this conversation is going.
  1607. >Talking about flanks with the ruler of Equestria is doing things to you.
  1608. >Where is your self control when you fucking need it?
  1609. >Good thing this is probably a dream.
  1610. "Nope. I don't think I ever will, either."
  1611. >"There's nothing wrong with liking mares."
  1612. >"I must say, I've had my eyes on you ever since you came to this world."
  1613. "W-Why? Is there something special about me or something?"
  1614. "I'm just a regular guy; I wasn't even considered THAT attractive back home."
  1615. "Not that other humans thought I was ugly. I look good, goddamnit, but I'm no ten out of ten."
  1616. >Again, Celestia giggled at your words.
  1617. >"Perhaps your appearance is especially attractive to our species, then."
  1618. >She looked back at you with bedroom eyes powerful enough to blow a hole through your head.
  1619. >"If you'd like to know how a mare feels, go ahead. I won't stop you."
  1620. >Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope.
  1621.  
  1622. >You had to get away from her rear end.
  1623. >You HAD to.
  1624. >It doesn't matter if you're dreaming.
  1625. >Now isn't the time to be getting seduced by Celestia.
  1626. >Walking up next to her, you looked over the balcony to see Canterlot below.
  1627. "T-Thanks for the offer, but, uh... I don't know if I can handle that."
  1628. "Although, it does feel nice to be admired like that; I won't lie."
  1629. >"Is that so? Do you feel the same way when mares take matters into their own hands?"
  1630. >Her words suggested she was aware of your current predicament.
  1631. >You sighed, hanging your head and placing your hands on the rail.
  1632. "Most of the time, it doesn't bother me. It's an everyday thing, y'know?"
  1633. "If anything, it's only a problem when my feelings are completely ignored."
  1634. "Or... if they resort to knocking me the fuck out. Or death threats. Can't forget about those ones."
  1635. >"Both Luna and myself have been keeping an eye on your situation for the past week."
  1636. "I figured. Last night, I saw the two of you in a dream."
  1637. "Luna winked at me, and then disappeared, along with you."
  1638. >"Hmm...Did she, now?"
  1639. >You don't like the way she said that.
  1640. >You turned to look at the large, white horse next to you, with an embarrassed look on your face.
  1641. >She's laughing.
  1642. >Again.
  1643. "That's not what I meant! Y-Y'know, for a goddess, you've got a dirty fucking mind!"
  1644. >"I quite enjoy how you speak to everypony equally, regardless of who they are."
  1645. "I'm sure you do."
  1646. >"What can I say? It's very amusing."
  1647. >Ponies tease and mess with you just as much as you do to them, it's poetic.
  1648. >Raising a hand to Dream Sunbutt's back, you started running your hands through her coat.
  1649. >She's absolutely right, but you like it that way.
  1650. >It's nice to interact with everypony equally.
  1651. >Celestia seemed to appreciate the contact.
  1652. >"You're rubbing the real, flesh-and-blood ruler of Equestria, you know."
  1653. >Wat
  1654.  
  1655. "HUH?!"
  1656. >"Perhaps I should have told you sooner, but this is no dream."
  1657. >"Your real body is elsewhere, and I'm communicating with you using an advanced spell."
  1658. >"The form you're currently occupying is one comprised of magic."
  1659. >"The manner in which you fell unconscious was humorous, might I add."
  1660. >You're hearing what she's saying, but you're too busy losing your shit.
  1661. >Actual Celestia, THE Celestia said all of those things to you?
  1662. >Your magic, ethereal cock is about to tear open a hole in your magic, ethereal pants.
  1663. >"Anon, your facial expression is very telling. Have you no shame?"
  1664. >"Of course, my offer still stands. I've been wondering what a naked human looks li-"
  1665. "CAN'T HEAR YOU! AH-AH-AH, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"
  1666. >You covered your ears, stepping away from the giggling sun goddess.
  1667. >This is too fucking much.
  1668. >You're just one human; You can only handle so much.
  1669. >And you'll be here with this damn horse for who knows how long at this rate.
  1670. >"My, what a reaction."
  1671. >Does this mean she brought you here just for this little chat?
  1672. >Curse this horny, magical talking horse.
  1673. "O-Okay, so, how do I wake my actual body up?"
  1674. >"Ask, and it shall be granted, Anonymous."
  1675. >"To tell you the truth, I was hoping you'd stay a bit longer."
  1676. "Jesus Christ, Celestia. We can do this later."
  1677. >"Oh? And what shall we 'do' later?"
  1678. "I fucking beg of you."
  1679. >"As you wish. I'll let you off easy this time."
  1680. >"When next we meet, do not expect me to give up so quickly."
  1681. >Her horn had begun to glow with that familiar golden hue.
  1682. >Your magical form faded away slowly, giving you enough time to wave goodbye to Sunbutt.
  1683. >Thank Celestia.
  1684. >Literally.
  1685.  
  1686. >It felt as though you were returned to your physical body.
  1687. >You returned in an odd state, and could only feel so much.
  1688. >Almost as if your senses were playing catch-up.
  1689. >Soon, you were plagued by a dull aching sensation in just about every single nerve.
  1690. >Your fingers twitched, your legs shifted, and your eyelids moved.
  1691. >Like a computer booting up, you were coming back to life.
  1692. >Slamming into that tree must have really fucked you up.
  1693. >Once most of your senses came back online, you could feel something lashing against your face.
  1694. >On second thought, dragging would be a better word.
  1695. >And your face felt wet, incredibly so.
  1696. >That could be because of the rain, but it wasn't the splishy-splashy kind of wet.
  1697. >It's more of the slimy-wimy kind of wet.
  1698. >The mere act of trying to open your eyes took a herculean amount of strength.
  1699. >When they finally opened, you saw something you weren't expecting in the slightest.
  1700. >The culprit was none other than a tongue.
  1701. >Fluttershy's tongue, to be more precise.
  1702. >Obviously, it was odd seeing her, as it implied that she followed you.
  1703. >But that's not very surprising.
  1704. >At the moment, you're still a bit dazed, and you lack the energy to really react to this.
  1705. >You have no idea how long had she been licking your face for.
  1706. >Strangely enough, it felt nice, amazing even, compared to the lingering pain from your fall.
  1707. >She didn't notice you were awake, so you ended up taking her slobbery tongue to the eyes.
  1708. "F-Fluttershy..."
  1709. >It took a lot of effort, but you raised your hand up to her, pushing her face back a bit.
  1710. >"O-Oh! Anon! You're awake!" Fluttershy looked like she was in heaven, nuzzling against your hand.
  1711. "God... damn..."
  1712. >It felt nice while it was happening, but now that she's stopped, your face just feels gross.
  1713. >That, and your clothes are damp.
  1714. >"Don't move too much, okay?"
  1715. >You moved your head enough to check your lower body.
  1716. >Your pants were still on, and nothing seemed to be out of place.
  1717. >That's a shocker.
  1718. >Did Fluttershy actually have enough decency not to defile you while you were unconscious?
  1719. >That's crazy.
  1720. >Pain surged through your head once more, pulsing much like a heartbeat would.
  1721. >To be fair, she did warn you.
  1722.  
  1723. "Anyway, mind telling me why you were licking my face while I was knocked out?"
  1724. >"I-I was only trying to wake you up, that's all. I promise."
  1725. "And should I even bother asking how you knew where to find me?"
  1726. >"Umm...Trixie told me."
  1727. >Trixie told her where you went?
  1728. >Why do you get the feeling something weird happened?
  1729. "Well, thanks for not raping my unconscious body. I appreciate that."
  1730. >Squirming with your back against the tree, you tried to get into a position where you could easily stand up.
  1731. >"A-Anon, let me help!"
  1732. "Silly horse. It'll take a lot more than that to keep me down."
  1733. >You were too distracted to realize it, but it's even darker than it was when you were talking to Sunbutt.
  1734. >The clouds over the area are blocking out a pretty good portion of the moonlight.
  1735. >Eventually, you got back on your feet and picked up your satchel.
  1736. >It's drizzling lightly, and the winds have died down, so you must have "slept" through the storm unharmed.
  1737. >Thank Celestia for that.
  1738. >"What were you doing out here in these woods?"
  1739. "Spike sent me a letter, told me to come meet him at our old camping spot at Neighagra Falls."
  1740. >"Spike? Hasn't he been away at the Crystal Empire?"
  1741. "He was, but now he's here. And he wanted me to come by myself."
  1742. "So... you being here kind of defeats the purpose of that."
  1743. >"Oh, sorry..."
  1744. "It's fine. I should have known better than to think I could have avoided you."
  1745. >"Y-You're not gonna' make me go back to Ponyville by myself, are you?"
  1746. "What? Of course not! Spike might not be happy about it, but I'm sure he'll understand."
  1747. >Speaking of Spike, you're not going anywhere in this darkness.
  1748. >You reached into your handy-dandy Satchel(TM) to pull out a small, electric lantern.
  1749. >This thing cost you at least three bags worth of bits, so you're glad it's still intact.
  1750. >It's a souvenir from a previous trip to Manehattan with Rarity.
  1751. >She had you try on all kinds of ridiculous bullshit while you were there.
  1752. >You'll never understand fashion.
  1753. >It turned on without a hitch, and the difference was like night and day.
  1754. >The lantern doesn't look like it would be very powerful, but it shines surprisingly bright.
  1755. >"B-By the way, is-
  1756. "No. Tongues are not my fetish."
  1757. >"Oh..."
  1758. >You had a feeling she was going to ask that.
  1759. >"...And I'm guessing you still know the way to the camping spot, right?"
  1760. "Oh, uh, yeah! Duh."
  1761. >You made one last check before walking off.
  1762. >Your trusty pocket knife was still in your right back pocket, and thankfully, it was retracted.
  1763. >Taking a knife to your ass during that slip would not have been fun, or pleasant.
  1764.  
  1765. >Your head continued throbbing, but the pain everywhere else was comparatively mild by now.
  1766. "I'm still a little woozy, but that's okay."
  1767. >As you held your head, it finally registered.
  1768. >This is the most respectful Fluttershy has been to you in a good minute.
  1769. >She's fetish guessing again, but other than that, this is a nice change of pace.
  1770. >Now if it would stay like that, that'd be swell.
  1771. "Come on, it shouldn't be too far from here."
  1772. >When you looked over your shoulder at Fluttershy, she wasn't following you.
  1773. "Uhh, Shy? What are you standing around for?"
  1774. >Nutter Butter wasn't responding.
  1775. >You didn't understand what was going on immediately, but it kicked in when you stepped closer to her.
  1776. >It's happening again.
  1777. >She's showing the same statue-like symptoms as before, when the two of you were in Everfree Forest.
  1778. >Your good friend, the Almighty Rainbow God-Emperor Beam Of Holy Protection(TM), suddenly exited your chest.
  1779. >More than likely, it was headed all the way back to Ponyville.
  1780. >Or more specifically, the castle.
  1781. >What in the flying fuck was really going on here?
  1782. >Are you even being "protected" at this point?
  1783. >Nothing was happening at all; She didn't do anything to you.
  1784. >You assumed this whole phenomenon with the Tree of Harmony started because it was trying to save you.
  1785. >Were you mistaken?
  1786. >Flashbacks of Fluttershy's Super Rapist(TM) mode hit you like a ton of bricks.
  1787. >This isn't good.
  1788. >This is totally not good.
  1789. >If she entered that state again, would you be able to handle her all by yourself?
  1790. >Is a simple slap to the face enough to wake her up?
  1791. >You ran through several possible scenarios in your head as quickly as you could.
  1792. >Twilight would be so proud of you if she could see the big brain calculations going on in your mind.
  1793. >For starters, you're still recovering from that fall.
  1794. >Secondly, it took both Twi's magic and Rainbow's strength to hold her down.
  1795. >And to your dismay, these clouds still haven't cleared.
  1796. >If anything, it's getting darker and darker.
  1797. >This lantern would end up being the only reason you can see, and if you dropped it, that's game over.
  1798. >She has better hearing than you, maybe even better sight, and she can smell the SHIT out of you.
  1799. >The smell part is the most worrisome out of them all.
  1800. >Trixie didn't know EXACTLY where you were heading, only that you wanted to board the train to Manehattan.
  1801. >Which means Fluttershy flew after the train, caught your scent, and came all the way over here.
  1802. >Hiding from her is fucking impossible, and you're miles away from the castle.
  1803. >You've determined that you're basically fucked beyond all reason.
  1804. >Your best option is to meet up with Spike, so you'd better get moving.
  1805. >Fast.
  1806.  
  1807. >Running through the clearing, you almost fell flat on your face.
  1808. >Thankfully, your hands were quick enough to break the fall.
  1809. >Your lantern rolled along the forest floor, stopping in front of a log.
  1810. >You rolled onto your back, struggling to catch your breath.
  1811. >"Anon?!"
  1812. >The dragon you came here to see shouted your name, before running over to you.
  1813. >The pitter-patter of tiny feet drew closer and closer.
  1814. >"W-What's with the rush?!"
  1815. "No... time... start... talking!"
  1816. >You spoke inbetween heavy, labored breaths.
  1817. >"Start talking? What are ya' talkin' about?!"
  1818. >"Are you okay?! Did something happen?! I-I mean, you just got here! Don't you wanna'-"
  1819. "...The reason... you asked me to come here! Spit it out!"
  1820. "It's important... Isn't it?"
  1821. >"Oh. Right."
  1822. >It took him a moment to reply; His frantic and shocked tone was replaced with one of dejection.
  1823. >He stepped away from you, waddling elsewhere.
  1824. >After shutting up long enough to breathe properly, you rolled over onto your stomach.
  1825. >Since you weren't sure how much time you have before Fluttershy wakes up, you hightailed it over here.
  1826. >It's rather unceremonious of you to show up gasping for air and panicked like this.
  1827. >Unfortunately, it's out of your hands.
  1828. >You're not sure what Spike wants, but whatever it is, you're hoping it won't take long.
  1829. >With shaky legs, you got up and reached for your lantern.
  1830. >No cracks, no scratches, no damage.
  1831. >Good.
  1832. >"Man, you look like you've been through a lot." Spike remarked, sitting on top of a log.
  1833. >His words made you chuckle.
  1834. "Trust me, you don't know the half of it."
  1835. >Spike had an entire setup ready for the two of you.
  1836. >A log for both of you to sit on, a campfire with a roaring, and a green flame.
  1837. >Hell, there was a spit-roasted chicken over the fire.
  1838. >The tents were still in good condition even after you both left them here.
  1839. >Spike did a great job staking those to the ground; The storm hardly even moved them.
  1840. >You expected no less from your little dragon bro.
  1841. >Wait, he's got a spit-roasted fucking chicken?
  1842. "Wha... Spike? Did you...?"
  1843. >"What's the matter, Anon? Thought I didn't have it in me to hunt?"
  1844. >"You ARE talking to a dragon, after all."
  1845. >He had the most cocky look on his face as he admired his own claws.
  1846. >A wide, toothy grin appeared on your face, and you almost burst into laughter.
  1847. "You're a riot, you know that, Spike?"
  1848. >Stuff like this is why you got along so well with him.
  1849. >Even after hanging around all these ponies his entire life, he's still a dragon on the inside.
  1850. >One day, he'll grow up and become a Giga Chad(TM) just like you.
  1851.  
  1852. >The throbbing pain in your head was finally beginning to subside.
  1853. >A while after waking up, you feared you had given yourself brain damage with that nasty fall.
  1854. >Luckily, you're sturdier than you give yourself credit for.
  1855. >You could hear the rushing waters of Neighagra Falls in the distance.
  1856. >As dark as it was, you could faintly see them, too.
  1857. >There's something really magical about this spot.
  1858. >That's exactly why the two of you claimed it for yourselves.
  1859. >If you had a flag, you'd have stabbed it into the ground here a long time ago.
  1860. >But it's a shame you don't have a lot of time.
  1861. >You'd love to sit down and talk with him for hours on end until you both pass the fuck out.
  1862. >That ticking rape-bomb is still out there in the woods, probably at the exact spot you left her in.
  1863. "So... What's the deal?"
  1864. >Again, his demeanor changed when you got right to the heart of the matter.
  1865. >Something must really be bothering him.
  1866. >"Um, it's a little complicated."
  1867. "Like, Twilight rummaging through books to find an answer to a centuries-old question, complicated?"
  1868. >"Nah. More like... emotionally complicated.
  1869. "Well? What is it?"
  1870. >"Err..."
  1871. >He was twiddling his claws, staring into the green campfire of his own creation.
  1872. "I don't judge, Spike. You know that."
  1873. >"Are ya' sure about that?"
  1874. "Okay, I know I make jokes with poor taste sometimes, but I'm serious."
  1875. "Tell me what it is, and I'll tell you about something I've been dealing with, too.
  1876. >"...It's a deal."
  1877. >Spike inhaled deeply, and exhaled, before looking you right in the eyes.
  1878. >"I-I've been thinking about leaving Ponyville. Maybe not for good, but..."
  1879. "That's it?"
  1880. >"Huh?"
  1881. "Spike, you're a fucking dragon."
  1882. "Frankly, I'm surprised you haven't distanced yourself a bit from ponies yet."
  1883. >"Ugh, I feel so stupid. I should have figured you'd say something like that."
  1884. "You're damn right you should have."
  1885.  
  1886. >"It's just that I've been wanting to, you know, broaden my horizons!"
  1887. >"Rarity said that to me a while ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since."
  1888. >"Remember that story I told you about the time I helped save the Crystal Empire?"
  1889. "Yeah? What about it?"
  1890. >"It made me feel... dependable! And... strong! And... independent."
  1891. >"And the others still see me as this... little baby dragon."
  1892. "Sounds like growing pains to me."
  1893. >"Growing pains?"
  1894. "The same thing happened to me when I was a teenager."
  1895. >"Really?"
  1896. "Yup. It felt like I was a big, strong man in a little boy's body."
  1897. >You turned away from Spike, looking into the cloudy skies above.
  1898. "Sometimes, I still see myself as that little boy."
  1899. "It's a part of growing up, that's all it is."
  1900. "Which brings me to my next question."
  1901. "Do you really want to leave Ponyville, or do you just want to speed up time?"
  1902. >"I... I think... I just want to speed up time."
  1903. >He looked defeated, but in a way that showed understanding.
  1904. >You walked up to him, and sat down on the same log.
  1905. "Listen, Spike. You're awesome. Just like me, just like Rainbow."
  1906. "You're gonna' live a long time, because from what I've read, you dragons live LONG lives."
  1907. "So, while you're young, just focus on setting up your future, yeah?"
  1908. >"Setting up my future, huh?"
  1909. "Yeah, one piece at a time. And if you want those ponies to take you more seriously, act like it."
  1910. >You stared into the green flames, thinking to yourself for a moment.
  1911. "I could use that advice just as much as you, honestly."
  1912. >Spike wrapped his arms around you, and you raised your arms in reaction, looking down at him.
  1913. >"Thanks, Anon. I knew you were the right guy to call."
  1914. "Any time, bro."
  1915. >The Dragon(TM) broke the hug, and started kicking his little legs as he sat with you happily.
  1916. >"On a side note, you remember Starlight, right?"
  1917. "Yeah, she's the mare Twi told me about. The one who almost ended the world."
  1918. >"Hehe... yeah. Listen, she told me she'd be coming back from the Crystal Empire soon."
  1919. >I know you love meeting ponies, so I figured I'd tell you."
  1920. "Can't wait. Twi thinks her and I would get along, so we'll see."
  1921. >"Oh, almost forgot! What were you going to tell me about in exchange?"
  1922. "Oh... Uh, Fluttershy is somewhere in the woods, and she's about to come rape me."
  1923. >"She's gonna' WHAT now?!"
  1924. >Spike was sufficiently taken aback from the sudden tonal shift.
  1925. "She's about to come rape me. A lot has been going on while you've been up there in Crystal Land."
  1926. >"L-Like what?"
  1927.  
  1928. >Over to your left, you suddenly heard a murder of crows cawing from afar.
  1929. >Having the satchel around you would only get in the way, so you dropped it.
  1930. >Reaching inside of it, you pulled out every can of Meat-Substitute(TM).
  1931. >You handed Spike two of them, and held two in your own hands.
  1932. >"Anon? Is this... fake meat?"
  1933. >You were too busy staring into the darkness behind the trees to answer Spike.
  1934. >Sweat started to roll down your brow; Your previous adrenaline had been reactivated.
  1935. >She's coming, and she's here for you.
  1936. >But not Spike.
  1937. >You don't want him getting caught up in this incoming shitstorm.
  1938. >With Spike's campfire lighting the area, you don't have to worry about your lantern.
  1939. >You can take her.
  1940. "Spike, go hide in the tent. Take the cans with you."
  1941. >"Hide?! Is Fluttershy coming?"
  1942. "Hurry up!"
  1943. >"O-Okay, I get it!"
  1944. "If things go south, I want you to throw those cans at her as hard as you can!"
  1945. >Spike hopped off the log and ran into one of the nearby tents.
  1946. >You hopped off the log yourself to face the pitch-black darkness of the woods.
  1947. >Holding a can of Meat-Substitute(TM) in the air, you were ready to throw it at a moment's notice.
  1948. >Her Rape Field(TM) is absolutely massive; You can feel it from here.
  1949. >And not a moment later, Fluttershy ran out of a bush, darting straight for you.
  1950. >You yeeted the can of fake meat at her as hard as you could.
  1951. >It hit her square in the head, bouncing off of her, and she tumbled onto the ground.
  1952. "S-Stay back, Fluttershy! Don't make me do this!"
  1953. >Even after taking a large, metal can full of food to the head, she got right back up.
  1954. >The look in her eyes was fierce, and she seemed to be much more resilient this time around.
  1955. >She wanted cock, and she needed it now.
  1956. >You tossed the second can of meat, hoping you'd nail her in the head again, but you missed.
  1957. >Or more accurately, she dodged it.
  1958. >By flying.
  1959. >DEAR CELESTIA, SHE'S EVOLVING
  1960.  
  1961. >Your stupid, human brain isn't equipped to handle flying predators.
  1962. >She darted at you once more, this time, with increased speed thanks to her wings.
  1963. >You frantically pulled your Stabby-Stabby(TM) out, but the craziest thing happened afterwards.
  1964. >Fluttershy took it in her mouth and flew off with it, before throwing it into the woods.
  1965. "M-My knife...!"
  1966. >You couldn't possibly have seen that coming.
  1967. >Why was she so smart all of a sudden?
  1968. >Her having all of that strength, speed, and intelligence isn't fair!
  1969. >The flying rapist performed a quick U-turn, and you had nothing but your bare hands.
  1970. >She slammed right into your chest, knocking you to the moist forest floor and pinning you.
  1971. >It felt like something had just been broken, but you didn't stop struggling.
  1972. >"Just... ACCEPT ME, ANON!"
  1973. "NO!"
  1974. >You tried to punch her, kick her off, push her, or anything else, but it just wasn't happening.
  1975. >Super Rapist(TM) deciding to grow a brain really threw a wrench in your plans.
  1976. >Fighting off a mare this sexually enraged was already too much.
  1977. >If she manages to free Anon Jr. in any way, shape, or form, that's good game.
  1978. >GG No re.
  1979. >You'll be cumming buckets until you fucking die.
  1980. >You'd love it if Spike started tossing those cans right about now.
  1981. >She got fed up with your squirming, and decided enough was enough.
  1982. >"Hold still! Quit MOVING!"
  1983. >Fluttershy spun around, presenting you with a view that incited an instant flashback.
  1984. >The last moments of your run-in with the fake, dream Twilight plagued your thoughts.
  1985. >Despite raising your arms in defense, the course of Fluttershy's ass wasn't affected at all.
  1986. >In layman's terms, she sat down right on top of your stupid head.
  1987. >To say that this has made breathing difficult is an understatement.
  1988. >Blubbershy over here is far heavier than you thought; You're practically drowning in a sea of yellow pudge.
  1989. >Her mouth went straight for your zipper, too.
  1990. >As you struggled to breathe underneath Nutter Butter, you felt your mind beginning to slip.
  1991. >Because you aren't just trying to fight off Fluttershy.
  1992. >No, no, no.
  1993. >Anon Jr. is equally as formidable, and he's never on your side when you need him to be.
  1994.  
  1995. >Every male ancestor in your bloodline would be proud of the erection you're sporting right now.
  1996. >It may be physiologically impossible to ignore the Collector's Edition Horse Pussy(TM) on your face.
  1997. >And of course, who could possibly forget about the Deluxe Ponut(TM)?
  1998. >Anon Jr. was freed from his prison, and Fluttershy resumed the hot dog eating contest from last week.
  1999. >Your hands were on her flanks, and you could definitely continue struggling against the Throat Goat(TM).
  2000. >Maybe shake her around, squirm about, or try to toss her off.
  2001. >You did none of those things.
  2002. >It was as if some alternate version of you, one with no restraint whatsoever, took control.
  2003. >Obviously, that's a load of shit.
  2004. >You were simply falling victim to biological desires.
  2005. >Excuses like, "it's not that bad", or, "you tried your best", filled your mind.
  2006. >"F-Fluttershy, what's gotten into you?! Didn't you hear what he said?!"
  2007. >It sounded muffled, but you could tell Spike was shouting at her.
  2008. >She didn't get off of you, nor did she forfeit the hot dog eating contest.
  2009. >In that moment, you thought about how lame you must look right now, getting dominated like this.
  2010. >That's okay.
  2011. >She's about as strong as three Applejacks, so you can't really stop her, anyway.
  2012. >After that, you thought about what Twilight would do if she were here to see this.
  2013. >There's a decent chance she'd find this hilarious and laugh, but that's not the only thing she would do.
  2014. >She'd use that powerful magic of hers to help you out.
  2015. >"No... means no!"
  2016. >A resounding metal clang echoed throughout the forest, and you can assume Spike tossed a can at her.
  2017. >She didn't stop.
  2018. >Hell, she didn't even slow down.
  2019. >It reminded you of how persistent Rainbow was in that dream.
  2020. >Even after getting left in the dust, she STILL followed after you.
  2021. >She didn't stop trying.
  2022. >"You're supposed to be friends!"
  2023. >Again, Fluttershy was this close to winning the competition.
  2024. >She'd be rewarded with a taste of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing(TM).
  2025. >However, what Spike just said brought you back from the brink.
  2026.  
  2027. >You and Fluttershy are supposed to be friends.
  2028. >Even if she does things you don't approve of sometimes, you have to accept her for who she is.
  2029. >You don't have to like the rape, you just have to accept it.
  2030. >When she first started to show early symptoms, even though they were mild, you started avoiding her.
  2031. >How bad did that avoidance make her feel?
  2032. >Didn't she JUST ask you to accept her?
  2033. >After Fluttershy froze for the second time, you questioned what the Tree of Harmony's intentions really were.
  2034. >Now, you finally understand.
  2035. >It was trying to get you to understand how your avoidant actions were driving the two of you apart.
  2036. >By turning Fluttershy into a Super Rapist(TM) that would aggressively hunt you down, no less.
  2037. >That's a cheesy way to interpret it, and it's still weird how she can't enter the castle.
  2038. >Maybe there's some metaphorical shit you're not understanding, but thinking about it hurts your brain.
  2039. >Something was obviously wrong with her, but you continued to hide inside your Rape Shelter.
  2040. >Meanwhile, she essentially suffered in silence and raped Pinkie for a week straight.
  2041. >And even before all of that, she was about to let wild bears maul you, just for some cock.
  2042. >Your reaction back then was pretty justified, but things should never have gotten to that point.
  2043. >To be honest, you deserve this.
  2044. >She may be a rapist, but you've been a bad friend to her, and you resent that.
  2045. >After realizing your mistakes, you lifted Fluttershy's butt off your face enough to be able to speak.
  2046. "F-Fluttershy, I accept you!"
  2047. >Almost instantly, she paused her ministrations.
  2048. >Thank Celestia she did, because you weren't going to last much longer.
  2049. >"You... what?"
  2050. "I accept you! I'm sorry for running away, and hiding, and avoiding you, and being a piece of shit!"
  2051. "I've been treating everypony fairly except for you!"
  2052. >Just as your tired arms were about to give, Fluttershy flew into the air.
  2053. >Your lungs felt like they were full of rocks.
  2054. >Spike ran over and kneeled down next to you, panicking.
  2055. >"Anon! Are you hurt?! Oh, there's no way you're not hurt, not after that! Show me where it-"
  2056. "Spike. Relax."
  2057. >"Hehe... Sorry. I'm just worried."
  2058. "I know, I know."
  2059. >"Oh, and... you've got a little something in your face."
  2060. >"More like a lot of something really, but..."
  2061. >Of course.
  2062. >Mare Juice(TM).
  2063. >"H-Here, let me get something for that. I've got a towel in my tent somewhere."
  2064. "Spike, I don't know how I feel about having you wipe Fluttershy's-"
  2065. >It's too late.
  2066. >He was already running off towards the tent.
  2067. "Goddammit."
  2068.  
  2069. >Fluttershy landed next to you, leaning over your face.
  2070. >"Do you really mean that, Anon?"
  2071. "Yeah, I mean it."
  2072. "From now on, things will be different, okay?"
  2073. "I'm finished ignoring you; That'll never happen again."
  2074. >"N-No, it's my fault."
  2075. >"Now I understand what kind of things I've been doing whenever I blank out."
  2076. >"You probably think I'm a monster!"
  2077. >She looked absolutely miserable, and that makes you upset.
  2078. >You should be the one crying your eyes out, not her.
  2079. "No, no, no..."
  2080. >You raised your hand to touch Fluttershy's face.
  2081. "I left you alone in the woods, frozen like a statue."
  2082. "Twice now! Okay?! Twice!"
  2083. "And I should have told Twilight what really happened even sooner than I did!"
  2084. "Instead of waiting an entire week to tell her like an... idiot."
  2085. >You just can't stop getting fucked up, can you?
  2086. >Along with that tackle to your ribs, you hurt yourself pretty badly struggling against her.
  2087. >It was getting harder and harder to talk.
  2088. "You're not some... thing I need to run away from, or a monster!"
  2089. "You're Fluttershy! My friend! If only I started acting like it sooner..."
  2090. >"Oh, Anon."
  2091. >Fluttershy nuzzled into your hand, just like earlier.
  2092. >"Found it! I knew that towel was in there somewhere."
  2093. >Spike returned from his tent with the towel, before taking some time to dry your face off.
  2094. >"You know, you two look pretty good together. Maybe you should-"
  2095. "Shut up."
  2096. >"I'm just messin' with you, Anon."
  2097. >"By the way, Fluttershy, I don't think I've ever seen you like that before!"
  2098. >"You were all like, WHAM! BAM! ZOOM!"
  2099. "Spike."
  2100. >"Sorry, sorry..."
  2101. >"W-Were we fighting?" Fluttershy looked over the campsite, spotting all of the meat cans laying about.
  2102. "I 'guess' you could call it fighting, but-"
  2103. >Some of them had burst open after making contact with her surprisingly thick skull.
  2104. "Wait, you're not hurt at all?"
  2105. >"No. I feel just fine, actually."
  2106.  
  2107. >This horse is something else.
  2108. >You felt an urge to get up and hug her, but your chest is fucked.
  2109. >For now, it looks like the ground is your resting place.
  2110. >Without a warning, your body tensed up as a powerful feeling washed over you.
  2111. >It was similar to the feeling of Mr. Rainbow coming out of you, but stronger.
  2112. >"Goodness, now that you mention it, something doesn't feel right."
  2113. >Not a second later, you came rainbows out of your chest.
  2114. >Lots of them.
  2115. >Fluttershy did too, and the rainbow beams rose up into the sky.
  2116. >The clouds were pierced and parted, allowing you to finally see moonlight again.
  2117. "GOD-"
  2118. >Did it have to come out of your chest?
  2119. >"Whooaaa, awesome!"
  2120. >Spike was enjoying it like a fireworks show, meanwhile, you were tearing up from the sudden pain.
  2121. >When the beams finally stopped doing their thing, you clutched your chest.
  2122. >"Anon, w-what just happened to us?!"
  2123. "We came... rainbows, Fluttershy. We came rainbows."
  2124. >That may have signalled the end of this little friendship problem.
  2125. >"Fluttershy! Anon! Spike! What the hay just happened?!"
  2126. >You could have sworn you just heard Rainbow Dash nearby.
  2127. >"S-Spike?"
  2128. >Twilight's voice graced your ears as well, so it looks like you're not crazy.
  2129. >The two of them flew over the campsite, with Twilight landing, and Rainbow remaining in the air.
  2130. >"Man, am I glad you two showed up! Anon is hurt pretty bad!"
  2131. >"Ummm, Anon and I had a fight..."
  2132. >"Y-You're not lying! There's meat cans all over the bucking place!"
  2133. >Rainbow hovered above you to look at your sorry condition.
  2134. >"A-And... is that your... C-COCK?!"
  2135. >Dash was a stuttering mess, her pupils as tiny as pinpricks, blushing profusely.
  2136. >This is a little awkward, considering she's never seen Anon Jr. before.
  2137. "D-Don't look, bro! Pretend you didn't see it!"
  2138. >"I-IT'S A LITTLE TOO LATE FOR THAT!"
  2139. >Twilight stifled yet another one of her infamous, inappropriately timed laughs.
  2140.  
  2141. >"The other girls were asleep, but Dash and I were at the castle wondering where you've been all day."
  2142. >"That's when the map started showing Fluttershy's location, so we flew over as fast as we could."
  2143. >That sounds about right.
  2144. >As long as Fluttershy was following you, there's no way this camping trip could've been a private affair.
  2145. >"Yeah, you totally missed our lunch date, bro!"
  2146. "Sorry, but... Spike wanted to see me. Privately."
  2147. "I tried to respect that as best as I could."
  2148. >"I see. What did you want to see him for, Spike?"
  2149. >Twilight walked over to the little guy, putting a hoof on his head.
  2150. >"Oh, y-you know, just a top secret meeting between bros! You wouldn't get it."
  2151. >"Uh-huhhh..."
  2152. >Grand Autismo sounded pretty skeptical, as usual.
  2153. >"And you, Fluttershy!"
  2154. >"M-Me?"
  2155. >Fluttershy practically shrunk as Rainbow pointed a hoof at her.
  2156. >"What's been going on with you, lately!?"
  2157. >"Why did you follow Anon all the way out here, beat him up, and..."
  2158. >Her little heart wasn't brave enough to finish that sentence.
  2159. >"W-Whatever else you did! I thought you were just having one of those crushes again!"
  2160. >"But this?! This is messed up, Fluttershy!"
  2161. >Butter Horse looked like she was moments away from bawling her eyes out.
  2162. "Rainbow, don't..."
  2163. >"What do you mean, 'don't'?!"
  2164. "She didn't mean it. It turns out there really was a 'friendship problem' going on."
  2165. "But, it's mostly my fault. I haven't been staying by her side to help like I should have."
  2166. >"How is it YOUR fault if she RAPES you, for Celestia's sake?!"
  2167. >She finally said the word.
  2168. >Rape(TM).
  2169.  
  2170. "Sometimes, Dash, you've gotta be the bigger... uhh... man. Pony. Whatever."
  2171. "Regardless of what she's done, all I've done for the past month, or even longer, is avoid her."
  2172. "I kept hoping and thinking about 'fixing' the friendship, when all I needed to do was 'accept' her."
  2173. "How would you feel if I purposefully started avoiding you?"
  2174. >"W-Well..." Rainbow had hung her head, sounding somewhat defeated.
  2175. >"He's right, Rainbow. You saw the way Fluttershy was acting yesterday. That wasn't normal." Twilight added.
  2176. >"Yeah, you're right... Sorry for snapping at you like that, Fluttershy."
  2177. >"I-It's okay, Rainbow." Fluttershy replied, flying into the air and hugging Dash.
  2178. >"And I was too distracted with my books to take this more seriously. Ugh!"
  2179. >"Sorry, Fluttershy."
  2180. >"Don't worry about it, Twilight. Everything's okay now."
  2181. >Autism Supreme and Yellow Ted Bundy approached each other to share a hug.
  2182. "Just blame me for that one, Twi. I was dismissive as hell."
  2183. "Remember? I waited an entire week to tell you what really happened in those woods."
  2184. "You might not have taken it as seriously because I was acting like it was just her 'time of the month'."
  2185. "Even after I found she raped Pinkie for a week straight, I didn't-"
  2186. >Did you just tell them about that?
  2187. >You totally didn't mean to tell them about that.
  2188. >Oh dear.
  2189. >"SHE DID WHAT?!"
  2190. >"I did... what?!"
  2191. >Rainbow's voice hit maximum volume, Spike was blushing, and Twi was trying so hard not to laugh.
  2192. >Fluttershy looked horrified, ashamed, and another emotion that you can't quite place your finger on.
  2193. >Not going to lie, it was a little funny to see Pinkie all deflated like an empty balloon yesterday.
  2194. >You're such a shit friend.
  2195. "F-Forget I said that, yeah?"
  2196. "Can you guys help me up? And, uh... put away Anon Jr. for me?"
  2197. >"D-DO IT YOURSELF!"
  2198. "See, I'd love to, but I'm having some difficulties moving at the moment."
  2199. "You're not scared, are you? It's not gonna' bite you or-"
  2200. >"J-JUST STOP!"
  2201. >She looked away from your junk, but you still caught her peeking out of the corner of her eyes.
  2202. >Anon Jr. is a very powerful being.
  2203. >Even now, he's still making your ancestors proud.
  2204. >"I'll do it, Anon."
  2205. >And Fluttershy was approaching him.
  2206. "U-Uhh... maybe it'd be best if Twilight used her... JESUS, DON'T BITE IT-"
  2207.  
  2208. >You tilted your head as far up as you could manage, fearing for Anon Jr.'s safety.
  2209. >She took him in her mouth once more, somehow managing to put him back behind bars, where he belongs.
  2210. >Even now, you'd rather not have Fluttershy anywhere near your hot dog, but that's okay.
  2211. >This is the way it's meant to be.
  2212. >She's your little rapist, almost like a pet.
  2213. >Still, could she have at least used her wings instead?
  2214. "D-Did you have to use your mouth for that? Oh, never mind."
  2215. "Thanks, Fluttershy..."
  2216. >Your words trailed off as you thanked her in an exhausted tone of voice.
  2217. >"No problem, Anon."
  2218. >F-FLUTTERSHY!"
  2219. >Rainbow was livid, Spike was still blushing, and Twilight looked curious more than anything else.
  2220. >"That thing sure is extra sensitive, huh?" Twi sounded like she was taking mental notes on human genitalia.
  2221. "Can we all just go back to Ponyville?"
  2222. "Pretty sure I need some kind of medical attention for this chest wound, something might be broken."
  2223. >"S-Sorry again, Anon."
  2224. "Apology accepted."
  2225. "Anyway, don't you have a teleport spell that can take us back, Twi?"
  2226. >"I was just about to get to that."
  2227. >Suddenly, Fluttershy gasped loudly, and you tilted your head in reaction.
  2228. >"S-Spike! Did you kill that chicken?"
  2229. >"Uhh... yes?"
  2230. "Cut him some slack, Shy. He is a dragon, y'know."
  2231. "Don't you feed your animals fish and stuff like that?"
  2232. >"Yes, but not chickens..."
  2233. "Oh well, fuck em'. Survival of the fittest."
  2234. >"Anon!"
  2235. "What?"
  2236. >"BAAAAHAHAHA-"
  2237. >Rainbow keeled over laughing, as did Twilight, and Spike eventually joined in, too.
  2238. "Heh..."
  2239.  
  2240. >"W-What's so funny?"
  2241. >Your chest wasn't happy about it, but you couldn't help but chuckle.
  2242. >Her questioning only made it funnier.
  2243. >"Ohhh, Celestia! That's too much..." Twilight got back up, wiping her excessive tears away with a hoof.
  2244. "Hey... Spike, mind holding my satchel for me?"
  2245. >"Aye-aye, captain! Wait... I'd better grab my bag and stuff, too."
  2246. >Tip-tap, tip-tap, went the sound of tiny little dragon feet.
  2247. >Seeing him grab your satchel reminded you of something.
  2248. "Ugh! I just realized!"
  2249. "Almost all the meat substitute is FUCKED!"
  2250. "And my knife! Uggghhh..."
  2251. >You groaned, voicing your frustration.
  2252. >"You sound more worried about those than yourself." Spike said disappointedly, holding your satchel.
  2253. >"I'm just glad you're okay, bro!" Rainbow must have been worried sick when you missed lunch.
  2254. >After all, you haven't missed a single lunch date ever since you started having them with her.
  2255. >"Alright, Twilight! Fire up that spell!" Rainbow shouted, pointing a hoof at Book Horse.
  2256. >"Working on it! Stand close, everypony!"
  2257. "Can't move."
  2258. >"O-Oh, right, sorry... Everypony, stand by Anon!"
  2259. >Twilight, Rainbow, Fluttershy, and Spike all corralled around you, waiting to be teleported.
  2260. >Twi's horn illuminated the campsite, the lighting of her purple magic fusing with Spike's green-lit campfire.
  2261. >You felt something of a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
  2262. >Not from the magical energy gathering around the five of you, though.
  2263. >It's from a feeling of satisfaction; The kind you feel after doing the right thing.
  2264. >What'll it be like spending time with Fluttershy again, you wonder.
  2265. >You'd have plenty of time to think about that while you rest.
  2266. >In less than a second, you were teleported miles and miles away, along with the others.
  2267. >Having such a drastic change in environment leaves you dizzy every time.
  2268. >It's not the first time Twilight has teleported you somewhere.
  2269. >The last time, it left you a vomiting, disoriented mess.
  2270. >A mess that you had to clean up, of course.
  2271. >"Is everypony alright? What about you, Anon?" Twi asked, checking to make sure everything is in order.
  2272. "Well, I don't feel like throwing up my breakfast, so..."
  2273. >Your gag reflex triggered as soon as you finished talking.
  2274. >"Maaaaybe you should take it easy on the talking for a sec', bro."
  2275. >After Rainbow spoke, a mighty yawn escaped her fast horse mouth.
  2276. >"Twi... you mind takin' over and watching him for me?"
  2277. >"I've got Wonderbolt practice in the morning and I'm beat."
  2278.  
  2279. >"Don't worry, Dash. I'll take care of him."
  2280. >You're not sure if a fan of the way she said that.
  2281. >"Don't go dying on me overnight, okay? I'll swing by RIGHT after practice, bro!"
  2282. "Later."
  2283. "Oh, and sorry for throwing my knife at you."
  2284. >"Huh? What the hay are you talkin' about? Did you hit your head or something?"
  2285. "Yeah... you could say tha-
  2286. "OUUEEUUGH-"
  2287. >"I warned you, didn't I? What am I gonna' do with you, huh?"
  2288. >"Anyways, good luck, Twi."
  2289. >"Good night, Rainbow Dash!" Spike happily chimed, waving goodbye to her.
  2290. >"B-Bye Rainbow." Fluttershy was staring at your chest, probably thinking about the damage she did.
  2291. >Rainbow said her last words, before zooming out of the castle.
  2292. >"I would appreciate it too, Twilight."
  2293. >"I'd stay for a while, but I have to go feed the animals, and it's getting pretty late."
  2294. >"No problem, Fluttershy. I'm used to Anon hanging around the castle by now, so this is no different."
  2295. >"Speaking of which, Spike, do you mind getting my bed ready for Anon?"
  2296. >"Okay! On it!"
  2297. >Spike, carrying your satchel, as well as his own camping bag, ran off into the hallway.
  2298. >He's much stronger than he lets on, for such a little guy.
  2299. >Fluttershy started leaving as well, heading out the double doors.
  2300. >"Good night, Anon. Get plenty of rest, okay? I'll come by in the morning."
  2301. >Nutter Butter looked back to say goodbye to you as she walked, her plot in plain view.
  2302. >Bad Anon.
  2303. >Bad.
  2304. >Stop looking at horse ass.
  2305. "Uh-huh. I'm sure I will."
  2306. "W-Whoa!"
  2307. >All of a sudden, Twilight's magic lifted you into the air, bringing you with her.
  2308. >"Come on, big guy. Let's get you in bed."
  2309. "Please don't fucking drop me."
  2310. >"I wouldn't dream of it; What kind of mare do you take me for?"
  2311. "The fucking with me type."
  2312. >Twi giggled playfully as she carried you off to her bed.
  2313.  
  2314. >It would be funny if accepting one rapist meant accepting another.
  2315. >Because Twilight is being exceptionally saucy today, and you're worried for your safety.
  2316. >If Anon Jr. is woken from his restful slumber again, you're not accountable for what happens.
  2317. >As Twilight levitated you down the hallway, you contemplated what to do first after you recover.
  2318. >At the current moment, you're drawing a blank.
  2319. >"Thinking hard up there, Anon?"
  2320. "Hmm... you could say that."
  2321. >"You're acting just a liiiittle bit unusual."
  2322. "Let me guess. I'm more talkative and social than this?"
  2323. >"Thats... exactly what I was going to say. Word for word."
  2324. "So much has been happening lately, y'know?"
  2325. "It's got me thinking about stuff I normally wouldn't."
  2326. "I'm worried I might turn into you if this keeps up."
  2327. >"Turn into me? What's that supposed to mean, hmm?"
  2328. "A nerd."
  2329. >"Something tells me that's not what you meant."
  2330. "Nope, that's exactly what I meant."
  2331. "Twilight Sparkle."
  2332. >"Anonymous."
  2333. >Twi gave you a playful look, sticking her tongue out at you.
  2334. >She brings something out of you, and you bring something out of her.
  2335. >As far as you know, she doesn't act like this constantly with anypony else.
  2336. >It's never a dull moment with Autism Supreme.
  2337. >That little exchange reminded you of something.
  2338. "Hey, Twi."
  2339. >"Hmm?"
  2340. "Were you worried about me?"
  2341. >"Uhh, worried about you when?"
  2342. "No particular time. Just in general."
  2343. >"Are you okay, mister? And I'm not talking about your injuries."
  2344. "Answer the question, Oh Purple One."
  2345. >"Of course I am!"
  2346. >Twilight seemed thoroughly confused by your question, no shocker there.
  2347. "Good. That makes me really happy, Twi."
  2348.  
  2349. >"There's something you're not telling me. Start talking."
  2350. "What, is it so wrong to ask a question like that?"
  2351. >"That's not a question friends normally ask each other out of the blue, Anon."
  2352. >"Maybe you should brush up on some of my friendship lessons."
  2353. "I'm gonna' brush up on you."
  2354. >That sounded about a million times better in your head.
  2355. >"Oh? When?"
  2356. >Shit.
  2357. "Forget I said anything."
  2358. >"Twilight, one. Anon, zero."
  2359. "W-We were competing?"
  2360. >Twi laughed heartily at your reaction, and her magic wavered for a moment.
  2361. "T-Twi. Please."
  2362. >"I won't drop you! Quit worrying so much."
  2363. "You telling me that is rich."
  2364. >This conversation is everlasting.
  2365. >One of you, doesn't matter who, always has a witty retort cocked and loaded.
  2366. >After that playful chatting, Twi finally brought you to her room.
  2367. >It wouldn't surprise you if she purposefully walked slower this entire time.
  2368. >Spike left your satchel right by the bed, ready and waiting for when you'd need it.
  2369. >"Alright, momma's gonna' tuck you in."
  2370. "You're enjoying this way too much."
  2371. >"It's not often that I have you to myself like this, let me enjoy it."
  2372. "Not often? What about the entirety of last week?"
  2373. >"This time is different, Anon."
  2374. >Twi levitated you over to her bed, laying you onto it.
  2375. "Not sure if I like the sound of that."
  2376. >Twilight stood up on her rear hooves, placing her front hooves on the bedside.
  2377. >"You're lucky you're injured, Anon."
  2378. >"There's something I've been wanting to test out."
  2379. "You can test out a hug, if you want."
  2380. >"A hug? Not much experimenting to be had there, Mr. Human."
  2381. "Purple horse hug human. Hug human now."
  2382. >"Alright, alright..."
  2383.  
  2384. >Twi wrapped her hooves around you, mostly the neck area, to avoid putting pressure on your chest.
  2385. >You brought a hand to her mane, scritching behind her ears.
  2386. >Her ears flicked up and down; Your inner 'HNNNNGH' was in full force.
  2387. >It only grew stronger as she pulled back from the hug, looking you right in the eyes.
  2388. >You've never had her this close to you before, not like this, at least.
  2389. >This is exactly what you needed at the end of that dream.
  2390. >"Well?"
  2391. "Got what I wanted."
  2392. >"Are you sure that's it?"
  2393. "If there's something else YOU want, feel free to speak up, Ms. Sparkle."
  2394. >Your eyes widened as Twilight leaned in, pressing her lips against yours.
  2395. >After a few, admittedly awkward seconds, she pulled away.
  2396. >It took your brain a few moments to fully catch up.
  2397. >That's the first time you've ever kissed a pony, and it was weird.
  2398. >But you know, it's nothing serious, really.
  2399. >Save for the fact that she's just shoved her horse tongue down your fucking throat.
  2400. >The sudden act shocked you, but you didn't want to show her your nerves, so you simply pulled back.
  2401. >A horse of this nature would surely use that against you; You've got to do better.
  2402. >Especially after the weakness you displayed to Celestia.
  2403. "Couldn't control yourself, you little sperg?"
  2404. "Last time I checked, you don't just kiss your friends out of nowhere."
  2405. >Your unwillingness to lose lets her get away with all kinds of things.
  2406. >This is definitely one of those times.
  2407. >"Wow. No compliments or anything?"
  2408. "Eh. I've had be... Let me not finish that sentence."
  2409. >You've fallen right into her trap.
  2410. >Foolish, foolish Anon.
  2411. >"Go on." Twi replied, giving you the world's deadliest bedroom eyes.
  2412. >That face could fucking kill.
  2413. >For an egghead, she has no business looking this good.
  2414. "Ahem... Anyway, what are we going to do about the whole possibly broken ribs thing?"
  2415. "I'm guessing I'm due for the Ponyville clinic in the morning."
  2416. >"Actually... the clinic has been closed for a while."
  2417. "For a while? How long has it been?"
  2418. >"About... four days now."
  2419. >"There was an accident, something to do with chemicals, I think."
  2420. "Fuck."
  2421. >"Luckily, Nurse Redheart wouldn't mind coming by to treat you herself."
  2422.  
  2423. "Really? Surely, she's got other-"
  2424. >"Anon, trust me, she would jump at the chance to help you."
  2425. >"She's been dying of boredom for the last few days."
  2426. "Hmm... sounds like she's been chatting you up."
  2427. >"I've been dropping by her home whenever I can, just to say hello."
  2428. >"Before that accident, I was helping her... 'x-ray' a few patients."
  2429. "The way you said that made it sound like something unorthodox."
  2430. >"No, no, It's nothing like that."
  2431. >"I just scanned over their bodies with my magic, and told her what I saw."
  2432. >"That's probably what I'll end up doing to you in the morning after I bring her over."
  2433. "As long as you don't accidentally zap me with magic."
  2434. >"If I zap you, it'll be on purpose."
  2435. "Twi, that's a terrible thing to make a joke about."
  2436. >"I'd never hurt you, Anon. You know that."
  2437. >You felt a soft coat and snout as Twilight cuddled her face against yours.
  2438. >That dream did a number on you in more ways than you can count.
  2439. >Would you have accepted this much affection from horses before?
  2440. >Would you even consider getting involved with a horse?
  2441. >You acted as if you weren't planning on it when Celestia brought it up.
  2442. >That's completely true, though.
  2443. >You aren't, but It's sort of... happening.
  2444. >Which begs the question, who do you have such feelings for at the moment?
  2445. >"No petting this time, hmm?"
  2446. "What are you, a cat?"
  2447. >"I'll raise my flank in the air if you want."
  2448. "Out."
  2449. >"It's my room, Anon."
  2450. "Get-"
  2451. >"Okay, okay, I'll get back to my studies. I wasn't ready to sleep anyway."
  2452. "You WILL be getting some sleep tonight, though... right?"
  2453. >"Nah. As soon as Redheart and I finish looking you over in the morning, I'll head straight to bed."
  2454. "Alright, Twi. Don't overdo it. You remember what happened the last time you didn't get sleep."
  2455. >"Aww, are you worried about me, Anon?"
  2456. "Begone, Purple One."
  2457. >Purple Intelligence finally took her leave, heading back to her treasure trove of books.
  2458. >You're not sure if you'd survive sleeping in the same bed as Twilight.
  2459. >You'd be lucky to get even a wink of sleep through her constant teasing.
  2460. >Closing your eyes, you relaxed your muscles and took a deep breath.
  2461. >Today was probably one of the most eventful days since you've been in Equestria.
  2462. >You're not sure if you'd prefer it to stay that way or not.
  2463. >You breathed your last conscious breath for the night, and passed out.
  2464.  
  2465. _
  2466.  
  2467. >22nd.
  2468. >The sounds of casual conversation passed your hearing, arousing you from your slumber.
  2469. >There's always something funny about waking up.
  2470. >That wonderful groggy feeling you get where you're a little woozy .
  2471. >Which is funny, because you don't feel like that right now at all.
  2472. >As a matter of fact, you feel exceptionally well rested.
  2473. >It's enough to make you want to jump out of bed.
  2474. >"A-Anon, don't move so much!"
  2475. >You looked up to see Twi and Redheart staring at you like you're crazy.
  2476. >Twi had called out to you, urging you not to get out of bed.
  2477. >"Anonymous, please, lay still so I can-" Redheart began to speak, before you interjected.
  2478. "What?"
  2479. >"Your injury! Twilight said you could hardly stand last night because of it!"
  2480. "Yeah, but it doesn't hurt at all right now. In fact..."
  2481. >"That doesn't mean you should just-" Twi continued on, but stopped when you hopped out of bed.
  2482. "I feel... fine! Great, even!"
  2483. >"T-Twilight, scan Anonymous for me, if you would."
  2484. >"I-I'm on it!"
  2485. >Twilight's magic ran over your body like one of those scanners in a sci-fi movie.
  2486. >"Seriously, Anon. As much pain as you were in last night, you should know better than to..."
  2487. "Better than to what?"
  2488. >"Uhh..."
  2489. >"What do you see, Twilight?"
  2490. >"Well, I expected to see some fractures in his ribs, or maybe some swelling..."
  2491. >"...And I do, but it's so insignificant that he may as well not be injured!"
  2492. >"In fact, his bones are... they're healing themselves!"
  2493. >"H-Healing themselves? What do you mean, Twilight?"
  2494. >"It's hard to see because of how small it is, but the fractures are... stitching themselves?"
  2495. >Twilight finished that sentence with a curious tone, and she sounds just as bewildered as Redheart.
  2496. >"Stitching? By Celestia, just what are you seeing in there?"
  2497.  
  2498. "I tried to tell you two!"
  2499. "When I woke up, I felt incredible! Like Fluttershy never tackled me in the first place!"
  2500. "It was mostly in my left rib, but now, there's no pain, no discomfort, nothing!"
  2501. "Here, let me prove it..."
  2502. >You raised your right hand, beating it against your chest.
  2503. "See?"
  2504. >"Twilight, no offense, but... did you bring me to a patient that can heal themselves?"
  2505. >"I-I didn't mean to! He's never displayed any kind of... whatever this is!"
  2506. >Twilight went full on nerd mode; You could feel her magic focusing on your chest.
  2507. >"Do y'all have some kind of weird human power that ya' haven't told us about?"
  2508. >A familiar voice, one belonging to a particular farm horse, sounded from outside Twi's room.
  2509. "AJ?"
  2510. >Twi's door swung fully open, and in came the rest of the Mane 6, including Spike.
  2511. >"Hiya, Nonny!"
  2512. >Pinkie was hopping about as she usually would, so it's nice to see that she's feeling better.
  2513. >"H-Hi, Anon. Thank goodness you're feeling better... I think." Fluttershy sounded very, very pleased.
  2514. >The guilt Fluttershy felt from what happened last night sounds like it's already out the door.
  2515. >"And here I was, thinking you'd be a mess this morning. Good to see you, Anonymous."
  2516. "Hey, Rarity. And no, unfortunately, you don't get to see me at my lowest point today."
  2517. >"I was under the impression your little mishap in Manehattan was your lowest point."
  2518. "SSHHHH! SSHH! Don't say anything about that! Remember our deal?"
  2519. >"How could I ever forget? You were-"
  2520. "Rarity."
  2521. >"What? I'm a lady of my word! A deal is a deal."
  2522. "I've got my eyes on you, you uppity little horse..."
  2523. >"We didn't wanna' disturb y'all, so we were just hangin' out in the hallway, listenin'."
  2524. >"Fluttershy kept us busy explainin' what even happened yesterday in the first place."
  2525. >"There's nothing TO disturb now! Anon here already healed himself in his sleep! I can't believe it!"
  2526. >Twi pointed a hoof at you, still ecstatic from this new discovery.
  2527. >Spike and Rainbow approached you, looking over your form.
  2528.  
  2529. >"He... definitely looks healthy. You should have seen him last night, Redheart." Spike noted.
  2530. >"Yeah, you were whining and crying like a baby last night, weren't you, bro?"
  2531. >Rainbow was laughing her flank off, flying upside down and crying tears of unabashed elation.
  2532. "Bullshit."
  2533. >"Trust me, whatever Fluttershy did to him yesterday, it was bad enough that he couldn't even get up..."
  2534. >"...So, how'd ya' do it, Anon? Come on, tell us!" Rainbow continued, flying up to you.
  2535. "No clue, bro."
  2536. >"Huh? Whaddaya' mean, no clue?" Rainbow got in your face, eyeing you as if she were suspicious.
  2537. >"You sounded fairly confident that you were healed, even with a lack of pain in mind." Redheart added.
  2538. "All I know is that it felt... natural. Like there was something telling me I was fine."
  2539. "I woke up feeling like a million bits! Don't think I've ever had such a good rest before."
  2540. >"You'd better apologize to Nurse Redheart, bro. She came here for nothing." Spike said, giving you a sly look.
  2541. >"No, it's quite alright. I'm... more shocked than anything, and at least this ended my boredom!"
  2542. >Redheart giggled, sitting on her hooves in front of you.
  2543. >"Is it safe to assume you'll be able to handle things from here, Anonymous?"
  2544. "Y-Yeah. Seems like I've got healing powers, apparently."
  2545. >When you were younger, you had a hard time hiding your attraction from female doctors.
  2546. >That hasn't changed at all, even in Horse World(TM).
  2547. >There's something about her bright, crystal blue eyes, white coat, and pink mane.
  2548. >It's such a beautiful combination of colors.
  2549. >"Well, in that case, I'll take my leave. Make sure he stays safe, okay, girls?"
  2550. >"Leave it to us! We'll watch him, 24/7!" Rainbow exclaimed, following Nurse Redheart to the door.
  2551. >"Oh, and Fluttershy, too! No offense."
  2552. >"It's okay..." Fluttershy cantered over to your side, rubbing against your leg.
  2553. >"I remember when I was in love..." Rarity sighed, sounding like she was travelling down memory lane.
  2554. "Whoa, now. Don't get it twisted. Fluttershy and I are friends."
  2555. "Okay? F-r-i-e-n-d-s."
  2556.  
  2557. >"Would you like me to help you plan your next date together?"
  2558. >"Y-Yes." Fluttershy quickly spoke, jumping at the chance to be associated with you in such a way.
  2559. "I swear, you're just as bad as Twilight, Rara."
  2560. >"Is that any way to speak in front of a lady, Anonymous?"
  2561. "Being female won't save you from my judgement, I'm afraid."
  2562. >Speaking of Grand Autismo, she was stifling laughter, as usual.
  2563. "Celestia, help me..."
  2564. >"I've got another errand to take care of before our lunch, so I'll see you at Wendigo's later, bro."
  2565. >"Twilight is probably gonna' spend the next hour dissecting you, and I don't wanna' see that."
  2566. "Later, Dash."
  2567. >"I-I actually do want to see-"
  2568. "No. You're not dissecting me. Especially not while you're a giggling mess."
  2569. >"But-"
  2570. "I said no. Bad Twilight. Bad."
  2571. >"You never let me have any fun, Anon."
  2572. "Keep telling yourself that."
  2573. >"A-Actually, if everypony doesn't mind, I wanted to talk to Nonny-Wonny about something..."
  2574. >"Oh! Of course, go ahead, Pinkie!" Twilight finally stopped teasing you long enough to change the subject.
  2575. >She yawned, the surprise of the situation beginning to wear off, as the urge to sleep crept up on her.
  2576. >"I'm gonna' go nap in the library, if you don't mind."
  2577. "Go right ahead, Twi. I'd be mad if you tried to stay up even longer than you already have."
  2578. "And you'd better not start rummaging through books trying to figure out what's going on with me."
  2579. "Get some sleep. We'll start doing all of that research later. Not now.
  2580. >"H-How did you know I was going to-"
  2581. "You think you're smart, Ms. Sparkle, but I'm always two steps ahead of you. Now go beddy-bye."
  2582. >"Fine. Sleep first, research later. I promise."
  2583. >"I'll see you later, bro!" Spike ran out the door with Twilight, waving goodbye to you for now.
  2584. >Ponko's face seemed bright and cheery, but her voice conveyed a different tone, enough for you to pick up on it.
  2585. >Also, Pinkie calling you "Nonny-Wonny" gave you flashbacks to the dream, causing you to shiver.
  2586. >The mere thought of that horrible experience strikes you like cold wind every single time.
  2587. >"Just don't break him when you're finished, okay?" Rarity teased, taking her prim and proper leave.
  2588. >From what you can tell, Rarity doesn't seem to have as much interest in you as Twilight does.
  2589. >Even so, she'll still tease the absolute shit out of you.
  2590. "Out! Chop-chop! You heard the mare!"
  2591. "That includes you, Fluttershy."
  2592. >"Eep!"
  2593. >Her signature "eep" sound escaped her lips, implying she was lost in wonderland rubbing against you.
  2594. >Of course, she went right back to it, not that you expected anything different.
  2595.  
  2596. >"I'll catch y'all later, Anonymous. Stay out of trouble, y'hear? Healin', or no healin'."
  2597. >"I want ya' alive for our next cider session."
  2598. "Will do! And uhh... I won't miss the session like I did last time."
  2599. >"Don't break a promise to a farmgirl, Anon. I'll hold ya' to that."
  2600. >"And if y'all could refrain from goin' crazy on Anon again, that'd be swell, Fluttershy."
  2601. >"Eep!" Fluttershy ceased her leg nuzzling in response to AJ's words.
  2602. >"By the way, Anonymous, I left a little somethin' for ya' in your fridge. Don't ask how I got in your house."
  2603. "It would have been less suspicious if you stopped after the first sentence."
  2604. >"That ain't how you show gratitude, partner."
  2605. "Where I come from, free food is a pretty big deal, so I'll give you a real thanks later, alright?"
  2606. >"Y'all don't have to do that, but I guess I'll look forward to it."
  2607. >"Gotta' get back to the farm now."
  2608. "Bye, AJ. Now..."
  2609. >Looking down at Fluttershy, you gave her a nudge towards the door.
  2610. >Your hands pushed at her flank, and it sounded like she came right then and there.
  2611. >"A-Anon! Do t-that aga-"
  2612. "Get the fuck out, you small yellow equine."
  2613. >"F-Fuck me."
  2614. >You bent over, picked up the inappropriate horse, and carried her out of the room.
  2615. "C'mon, Fluttershy. I'll talk to you later. In fact, just wait outside."
  2616. "And please, don't listen in on the conversation. Pinkie would be upset."
  2617. >"O-Ok..."
  2618. >After dropping Peanut Flutter Cups on her ass in the hallway, you closed the door to Twi's room.
  2619. "Alright, tell it to me straight, Pinks."
  2620. "What's on your mind?"
  2621. >"Gee, you don't waste time, do ya', Nonny?"
  2622. "I mean, after the way you were acting two days ago, I'm still a little concerned."
  2623. "You seemed fine this morning, but I was still ready to sit down and ask you myself."
  2624. >"Y-Yeah. It's about... Fluttershy. Sort of."
  2625. "You and her still haven't had the chance to talk that out, huh?"
  2626. >"That's the thing... Umm... I mayyyybe sorta... kinda'..."
  2627. "...Have been avoiding her?"
  2628. >Pinkie looked you right in the eyes, before averting her gaze towards the ground.
  2629. "Now, why is a pony like you avoiding a chat with her friend?"
  2630. "She didn't exactly mean to do that to you, Pinks. You know that, right?"
  2631. >"I-I know! It's just... well, normally I would have told her what I felt by now!"
  2632. "There's something else, isn't there? I can tell."
  2633. "Why don't you start by opening up to me about it all?"
  2634.  
  2635. >Pinkie, in reaction to you asking her to open up, suddenly had a case of the Sniffles(TM).
  2636. >Her eyes were teary, and you could tell the floodgates were about to open.
  2637. "Whoa, whoa, whoa! Pinkie!"
  2638. >You rushed to her side, kneeled down at her height, and did what you do best.
  2639. >Listening to your friends' problems.
  2640. >Well, recently, anyway.
  2641. >"S-She w-w-would come by e-every day, a-a-and tell me it's t-time to fuck, and..."
  2642. >"...I didn't wanna' tell her n-no! If I did, she got AAAAAANGRYYYY!"
  2643. >And there go the waterworks.
  2644. >She was crying a literal river of tears, and you immediately hugged her to calm her down.
  2645. >A few more minutes of tears like that, and Twi's room would get flooded.
  2646. >You rocked back and forth with Ponka in your arms, rubbing the back of her head.
  2647. "And then what happened?"
  2648. >"T-Then, s-she didn't come by the day you all w-went to Taco Del P-Pone!"
  2649. >"B-B-B-But the worst part was when I told her I was in l-love with somepony, and s-she didn't stop!"
  2650. >"I-I told her, I wanted to s-save myself for them, but..."
  2651. >Holy shit.
  2652. "Y-You're in love? Jesus, Pinks."
  2653. "Let it all out. I'll have to dry off before lunch, but that's okay."
  2654. "None of that is going to happen again, okay? Fluttershy is sorry about what happened."
  2655. "And another thing, I know how that feels, Pinkie."
  2656. >By this point, she was softly weeping, which is a million times better than the waterfall of tears.
  2657. "I had my virginity taken by somepony I wasn't planning on losing it to, as well."
  2658. >"Y-You did? W-Was it Fluttershy?"
  2659. "Ehh... close, but not quite.
  2660. >That accomplishment belongs to dream AJ, and even though she wasn't real, it felt like it.
  2661. "But anyways, to get my mind off of it, I just think about how great it'll be after I..."
  2662. "...Y'know, have that experience with somepony I actually intended to have it with."
  2663. "Somepony I like, or really just... somepony who isn't trying to rape me, honestly."
  2664. "You lose your virginity twice, Ponka. Once physically, twice emotionally."
  2665. "That's what I think, at least."
  2666. >"You... always seem to know what to say, Anon."
  2667. "I'm a fucking genius. Duh."
  2668. >You shook her around a bit, ruffling her mane with your comforting monkey hands.
  2669. "It might be a bit much, so don't worry about telling the others so soon if you can't handle it."
  2670. "I didn't even know about the whole being in love, and saving yourself part..."
  2671. >"N-No problem, Anon. I'm just glad that you listened to me. It makes me really, really happy."
  2672. >Pinkie stared into your eyes with a great deal of appreciation, and something else.
  2673. >Something else that you couldn't place your finger on, but it was intense.
  2674. >A sense of longing, maybe?
  2675.  
  2676. "Anytime, Pinks. I mean it. If it starts bothering you again, come to me right away."
  2677. "Just do me a favor, okay?"
  2678. >"What's that, Nonny?"
  2679. "You've gotta' talk it out with Fluttershy, okay? One on one."
  2680. "I'm glad telling me about it helped, but you've gotta' nip this in the bud."
  2681. "Otherwise, it's going to be really fucking awkward whenever you're around her."
  2682. >"I-I will. I'll talk to her right after this."
  2683. "Good girl."
  2684. >As you continued to pet Ponko, she started nuzzling against your hands.
  2685. >She's being extra affectionate today, but it's probably just because of the moment.
  2686. "By the way, do you think you could tell me who you've got the hots for? If it's not too much."
  2687. "Maybe it'll help get more of that stuff off your chest."
  2688. >"O-Oh! Uhh... I'll tell you another day, Nonny!"
  2689. >"You'll be the first pony... err... human that I tell!"
  2690. "As long as you don't feel like you have to, that's fine by me. I'd love to hear who it is."
  2691. "Now, begone with you, Oh Pink One! I shall speak with you another time."
  2692. >"Right away, your monkey-ness!"
  2693. >Monkey-ness?
  2694. >Pinkie hopped her way out of Twi's room, and the door magically swung open to let her out.
  2695. >You swear you'll never understand that horse.
  2696. >With that out of the way for now, you thought about what to do next.
  2697. >After all, you're just sitting in here by yourself.
  2698. >You woke up a little too late for breakfast, so really, all there is to do is wait until lunch.
  2699. >Your thoughts returned to your newfound healing abilities, and what they might mean for the future.
  2700. >Perhaps you can use it on others, too.
  2701. >The conversation you had with Celestia a while ago cropped up in your mind.
  2702. >She said you had a gift of some kind, whatever that may be.
  2703. >But now, if this is what she was talking about, that gift is beginning to unfold.
  2704. >Looks like you're due to have another chat with her pretty soon, so you can make sense of it.
  2705. >Either way, you've still gotta' think of something to do after lunch.
  2706. >This is just how your brain works; You always try to keep yourself busy ahead of time.
  2707. >Perhaps you can pick up Sassy for dinner or something.
  2708. >Hell, Lyra can join in on that, too.
  2709. >As you left, Fluttershy and Pinkie weren't in the hallway, and probably took their conversation elsewhere.
  2710. >Now that you've got the rest of your day semi-filled out, you headed to Wendigo's, feeling refreshed.
  2711.  
  2712. >Looking up the night sky, you exhaled a heavy breath, your back to the wall of Taco Del Pone.
  2713. >You were right beside the backdoor, waiting for one pony in particular to get off work.
  2714. >It'd be funny if you stood outside to surprise Sassy as she clocked out.
  2715. >To you, anyway.
  2716. >She probably wouldn't find it very humorous at all, but that's what makes it hilarious.
  2717. >It would've been a little lonely outside, were it not for a particular mint-colored horse.
  2718. >"Whatcha' thinking about, Anon?" Lyra asked, her eyes glued to your hands.
  2719. >Taking your eyes off of her for too long meant getting drool on your fingers, so you remained watchful.
  2720. "The future. What I'm going to do next. Stuff like that."
  2721. "Today had a lot of surprises."
  2722. "For one, Rainbow told me she might be winning The Flier of the Year award."
  2723. "I wouldn't know exactly how big, but apparently that's a huge deal."
  2724. >"Tell her I said congratulations! You should, like, have a party for her!"
  2725. "Already planning on that, don't worry. And you're invited, by the way."
  2726. >"I'd be upset if you didn't let me join in."
  2727. >"By the way, can I just say... you're really attractive, Anon."
  2728. "Wow. I never would have guessed. Even though you always tell me that."
  2729. >"No, seriously! Especially when you're deep in thought like that."
  2730. >"It makes you look... mysterious. And cool. And sexy."
  2731. "One of these days, I'm telling Bon Bon some of the things you say to me."
  2732. >"She's not a filly; She can handle it."
  2733. "Maybe some of the things you've DONE to me, too..."
  2734. >"O-Okay, you don't have to go that far."
  2735. "Yeah, that's what I thought."
  2736. >Just then, the backdoor swung open, further than you expected it to.
  2737. >Cold metal made harsh contact with your face, knocking you right in the nose.
  2738. "FUCK-"
  2739. >"A-Anon! Are you okay? Let me see..."
  2740. >Lyra inspected your face, checking to make sure that door didn't just destroy your nose.
  2741. >"Whew. You'll be fine."
  2742. >Even if it did, you'd probably just heal it off.
  2743.  
  2744. >"Had a feeling you'd be back here."
  2745. >You knew it was Sassy who opened the door, but you weren't expecting her to say that.
  2746. "H-How? Also, why'd you open the door so fucking wide?"
  2747. >"Ugh, I literally saw you walk by the window and go behind the restaurant."
  2748. >"Try to be a little more subtle next time."
  2749. "Again, why'd you open the door like that?"
  2750. >"I also had a feeling you'd try and surprise me. That, and I don't like you."
  2751. "You sure don't mince words, do you, Sassy?"
  2752. >"Never have, never will."
  2753. >Reaching into your hoodie, you pulled out a small bag, containing about twenty bits.
  2754. >"She seems... difficult." Lyra whispered, hiding behind you.
  2755. >"I heard that."
  2756. >"Oh...hehe...heh..." Lyra seemed to shrink down several sizes, making herself as small as possible.
  2757. "Lyra, this is Sassy. My meat dealer.
  2758. >"M-Meat dealer?"
  2759. "Here you go. Is this enough for you to not hate my guts, Sass?"
  2760. >"Mmm... close. You're five bits short. And never call me that again."
  2761. "I was hoping you'd turn on your 'nice' customer service voice."
  2762. >"Golly, thanks for the donation, mister!"
  2763. "HNNNNNGHHH"
  2764. >"Happy?" Sassy asked, tapping her hoof on the ground in impatience.
  2765. >"Good grief..." Lyra couldn't believe it.
  2766. >The first time she did that, you were just as surprised.
  2767. >"S-So Anon, where are we having dinner?"
  2768. >Something tells you Hand Horse and Fast Food Horse might not get along too well.
  2769. "I was thinking we could sit down at Spaghetti Marehouse and have a nice meal."
  2770. >"At least you've got good taste. When you aren't buying cans of meat substitute like a freak, anyway."
  2771. "I appreciate the kind words, Sassy."
  2772. >"Yeah, yeah, you're welcome. Let's get going."
  2773. >"Tomorrow is my day off, so don't waste my time."
  2774. "Wouldn't dream of it."
  2775. >"Lead the way, Anon! I haven't been to Spaghetti Marehouse in a while, they're like, so expensive!"
  2776. >"Dear Celestia, where do you get all of these bits from?"
  2777. "Funny you should mention her, it's actually..."
  2778. >Walking off into the night, you continued chatting up Sassy and Lyra.
  2779.  
  2780. >"Good evening, ladies! Right this way, I'll have you seated in just a-"
  2781. >The bathrooms in this place are fucking microscopic, but that shouldn't be surprising.
  2782. >They're built for ponies, not for you.
  2783. >Sassy and Lyra were standing beside one of the hosts, all three of them were staring at you.
  2784. >Especially the host.
  2785. "What? I just got out of the bathroom."
  2786. >He's shitting the bed for absolutely no reason.
  2787. >Wait, never mind.
  2788. >For anypony that's never seen a human before, that reaction is par for the course.
  2789. >Sighing, you waved a hand at the host in attempt to "wake" him up.
  2790. >All that did was encourage him to start running in the other direction.
  2791. "Listen, buddy. Just get us a fucking table."
  2792. >"O-O-Of c-course, s-sir! R-Right away!"
  2793. >He sprinted off somewhere at top speeds, so that's probably your queue to follow him.
  2794. "Welp. You two can go first."
  2795. >"Hmph. Chivalry will get you nowhere."
  2796. >Sassy walked on ahead with her head held high, and Lyra trotted close behind her.
  2797. >"Thanks, Anon. I appreciate your good manners!"
  2798. >"I don't."
  2799. >Lyra gave you this look that just screamed "What the fuck is this bitch's problem?"
  2800. >You shrugged your shoulders, not knowing how to answer that question.
  2801. >A good guess could be the long-lasting effects of customer service jobs on your personality.
  2802. >And if that's not it, you've got nothing.
  2803. >"YO! ANONYMOUS! WHAT'S UP?!"
  2804. >Turning your head to address what you assume to be a mare calling you, you spotted Vinyl.
  2805. >That's a face you didn't expect to see in a fancy place like this.
  2806. >She's sitting right next to Octavia, too, so that probably explains why she's here.
  2807. >Her outrageously loud greeting alerted almost every pony in the building.
  2808. >Those headphones of hers are seemingly always on full blast, and you wonder if she can even hear herself.
  2809. >You nervously waved back, not wanting to draw more attention to yourself than you already do by default.
  2810. >Octavia, much like Sassy, wasn't having it, and quickly drew Vinyl's attention away from you.
  2811. >Are you a bad influence or something?
  2812. >Once the three of you caught up to the frantic host, he ushed your little group into a small booth.
  2813. >Small for you, of course.
  2814. >You're going to take up so much fucking space.
  2815. >"W-What can I g-get for you three while y-you wai-"
  2816. >"Spaghetti. Now. And you'd better bring it out here fast, or you can say goodbye to your future kids."
  2817. >"I'm not playing around; I don't have time to wait all night."
  2818. >"A-And the d-d-d-drinks?"
  2819. >Sassy merely glared at him in response, and you've never seen a more scared stallion in your life.
  2820. >"EEEEEEE!"
  2821. >The host ran off, screaming something towards the back of the kitchen about spaghetti.
  2822.  
  2823. >Truth be told, spaghetti is exactly what you came here for.
  2824. >The question would be if that was what Lyra wanted.
  2825. "Lyra? Are you fine with that?"
  2826. >"I-I mean... hopefully we get our drinks? Even though you didn't order any..."
  2827. >"We will. I made sure of that."
  2828. "Alllright then."
  2829. >She really threatened him with the loss of his 'future kids'.
  2830. >That's insane.
  2831. >And hot.
  2832. >You've got problems.
  2833. "Hey, Lyra, mind if I sit down first?"
  2834. "It's better for you if you're not by the window, I'm too big."
  2835. >"Good point..."
  2836. >Obviously, Sassy sat by herself.
  2837. >And not a moment sooner, the host returned with three massive plates of spaghetti, and 3 drinks.
  2838. >With each cup and platter perilously wobbling around on his tray, it's a shocker that he hasn't dropped anything.
  2839. >Last time you checked, the portions at this restaurant are NOT this big.
  2840. >Everything looked amazing, though.
  2841. >At the speed your food was delivered, you'd think that he gave you someone else's order.
  2842. >After seeing that desperate look in his eyes, it doesn't sound completely out of the question.
  2843. >"There. Was that so hard?"
  2844. >Sassy, even when showing a teeny-tiny crumb of appreciation, still terrifies the shit out of this stallion.
  2845. >The guy is running away again.
  2846. >He's just looking out for his family jewels, but he did the job, there's no reason for him to-
  2847. >Your train of thought was interrupted as Sassy hopped out of the booth and chased after the host.
  2848. >Literally what the fuck did he do?
  2849. >She's currently chasing him into the kitchen for no discernible reason other than his own existence.
  2850. >"Jesus."
  2851. "You stole my line! You're not supposed to know who that is!"
  2852. >"It's not my fault! You say it all the time!"
  2853. "Bullshit."
  2854. >"Ahhem..."
  2855. >"...Anyways, now that she's gone... do ya' wanna..."
  2856. >"...y'know."
  2857. "No. I think I'd rather eat, Lyra."
  2858. >"Oh, you can eat, alright."
  2859. "Shut up and eat your sketti."
  2860. >"You're no fun... guess I'll just finger my own pussy... again."
  2861. "Please don't do that next to me."
  2862. >The two of you continued to enjoy each other's company whilst eating sketti, as Sassy ruthlessly pursued the host.
  2863. >Sure enough, you started hearing "schlicks", and it was NOT coming from the sketti.
  2864. "Goddamnit, Lyra."
  2865.  
  2866. >Opening the door to your home, you entered inside, closed the door behind you, and tossed off your hoodie.
  2867. >On the way back from "dinner", it felt as if something was pricking you every so often.
  2868. >You turned your hoodie inside out to inspect it, and found something very, very peculiar.
  2869. >There were small vines, about four inches in length, some of them with thorns, inside of the hoodie.
  2870. >These bastards were pricking you that entire time, but you aren't sure how these got into your clothes.
  2871. >Maybe the wind was blowing around some vines?
  2872. >That doesn't make much sense, of course.
  2873. >You'd prefer to deal with this now rather than later, so you started pulling them out, as painful as it was.
  2874. >Something even stranger happened once you got a hold of them.
  2875. >They started to twitch; The vines were jittering about, and out of nowhere, one of them seemed to be growing.
  2876. >It scared you half to death, despite it only being an insignificant vine, and you dropped it on the floor.
  2877. >Did magical vines, or whatever these were, manage to find their way into your hoodie?
  2878. >They were touching your skin, and the realization of that gave you an epiphany.
  2879. >Last night, while you slept, your injuries were rapidly healing themselves.
  2880. >And the strangest part about it was that it didn't come as a shock to you.
  2881. >It felt completely natural.
  2882. >However, something here doesn't feel right.
  2883. >At the very least, it feels different, and it could be because you're affecting things outside of your body.
  2884. >Now here you are, with vines that grew in reaction to your touch.
  2885. >In order to determine whether or not this was because of your ability, you approached one of your house plants.
  2886. >If it reacts to your touch in the same way that the vines did, then something else is definitely up.
  2887. >As you laid your hand upon the Spider Plant(TM), it started to shake about, before calming down.
  2888. >Before you knew it, it was growing exactly like plants of this kind normally would by themselves.
  2889. >Except this was much faster, and targeting a specific section of it would focus the growth effect.
  2890. >It was like watching a time-lapse of plant growth over time, but in real time.
  2891. >After taking your hands off the plant, you simply stared at it, trying to figure out what was going on.
  2892. >Not only is your body healing itself, but it seems you're causing living things to grow by touching them.
  2893. >And as if things weren't already strange enough, the plant continued to grow, even without your hands on it.
  2894. >You shook your head in confusion, and just as quickly as it started, the growth stopped.
  2895. >Staring back at the plant once more in shock, the growth started once again.
  2896. "What... the... fuck?"
  2897. >Were you influencing the plant from a distance?
  2898. >You mentally slapped yourself, and decided that you'd save the investigation for later.
  2899. >Otherwise, you'd be staring at your house plants all night.
  2900. >At the very least, you might know how those vines got in your clothes.
  2901.  
  2902. >Perhaps the wind was carrying some seeds around, they got in your hoodie, and grew from there.
  2903. >You can have a big, galaxy brain like Twi too, sometimes.
  2904. >She's going to love this, that's for sure.
  2905. >On the way to your bedroom, you noticed something a little off.
  2906. >The last time you were here was just before you left to meet up with Spike.
  2907. >And you specifically remember closing the bedroom door on your way out.
  2908. >There's a chance you're just being paranoid, and you're misremembering things.
  2909. >Or Fluttershy broke into your house, again, because that's something she's done before.
  2910. >You outstretched a hand to push the door open, but a horrifying sight stopped you dead in your tracks.
  2911. >There was an eye, blueish in color, glaring at you through the crack in your bedroom door.
  2912. >It likely belonged to a pony, but regardless of who the eye belonged to, you screamed at the top of your lungs.
  2913. >The scariest part was that your scream didn't cause whoever, or whatever was in your room to move.
  2914. >You pushed the door open as quickly as you could, hoping to identify whoever this intruder is.
  2915. >Even though you were staring them right in the eyes moments before, the intruder disappeared.
  2916. >Are you losing your fucking mind?
  2917. >Who the hell even was that?
  2918. >Could you even sleep after seeing something so unnerving?
  2919. >SHOULD you sleep after that?
  2920. >Out of paranoia, you dropped to the ground and checked under your bed.
  2921. >Your window is closed.
  2922. >There's nothing in your closet other than clothes.
  2923. >Did they run past you when you opened the door?
  2924. >Sitting down on the side of your bed, you took deep breaths to calm your nerves, staring into space.
  2925. >Truth be told, you could just go straight to Twi, or really anypony.
  2926. >For now, it's probably best to just get to bed.
  2927. >You're seeing things at this point; That's what you decided to tell yourself as you laid down.
  2928. >It wasn't easy, of course, and it kept cropping up in your mind.
  2929. >Nothing has frightened you that much since Fluttershy's Super Rapist(TM) mode.
  2930. >Ever since that little saga was dealt with, you assumed things would calm down around here.
  2931. >Apparently not.
  2932. >Amidst your tossing and turning, the sound of glass being knocked on startled you.
  2933. >Your window is directly above your bed, so you sat up, turning around to check it out.
  2934. >It was Fluttershy.
  2935. >Of course it was.
  2936.  
  2937. >She was mouthing for you to let her in, and in all honesty, you're glad she showed up.
  2938. >After opening your window, the small yellow horse flew her way into your room.
  2939. >"H-Hi, Anon. Thanks for letting me in."
  2940. >For some reason, she was wearing a bee costume.
  2941. >Part of it, at least.
  2942. >A hat with little antennae, and a big stinger.
  2943. "You look retarded."
  2944. >"I-I was wondering if bees were your..."
  2945. "No."
  2946. >You haven't let her into your room for a while now.
  2947. >The last time you did was when you were still new to Equestria, and she 'didn't' have the hots for you.
  2948. >Or, at the very least, the hots were developing.
  2949. "Was that the only reason you came here? Just to ask that?"
  2950. >"I felt lonely, s-so I came by because... I wanted to sleep with you."
  2951. "JUST sleep with me? Nothing else?"
  2952. >"I-If you want to fuck, let me know!"
  2953. >And there you go.
  2954. >In hindsight, you should know not to ask Fluttershy that kind of question by now.
  2955. >It's funny how only Fluttershy says 'fuck', while everypony else says 'buck'.
  2956. >More than likely because it's what YOU say.
  2957. "No, Fluttershy, I think I'm good."
  2958. >As if you said yes, Fluttershy attempted to mount you.
  2959. "Y'know, I said no. Don't know if you heard me, or not."
  2960. >"Your eyes are really pretty, Anon."
  2961. "Uh-huh."
  2962. >"Are compliments your fetish?"
  2963. "I appreciate them, but... no. They're not."
  2964. "Sounds like something a narcissist would get off to."
  2965. >"Did you have a good day after talking to Pinkie?"
  2966. "I had a great day, actually. Speaking of Pinkie..."
  2967. >"...You want to know how our talk went, don't you?"
  2968. "Yup. You're such a smart horse."
  2969. >"I assumed she pulled you aside to talk about what I did to her."
  2970. "And I comforted her as much as I could."
  2971. >"Even so, she was... still a little upset with me."
  2972. "No shit. You took her virginity, raped every day her for an entire week..."
  2973. "...Also, there's the whole being in love thing."
  2974. >"N-Not that I'm surprised! I expected her to lash out at me!"
  2975. "Everypony knows that you weren't yourself during all of that. Far from it."
  2976. "Because if you were, you and Pinkie would be in a really, REALLY rough patch right now."
  2977. "It's rough enough as it is; It'll take her some more time to heal."
  2978.  
  2979. >"It makes me wonder; Why did you decide to stay friends with me, Anon?"
  2980. >These days, it blindsides you whenever you're having an actual conversation with Nutter Putter.
  2981. >One that doesn't devolve, or start with "fuck me", or "kiss me, you big monkey".
  2982. "Because we ARE friends. Duh."
  2983. "That's really all there is to it, as far as I care."
  2984. >"But..."
  2985. "But - you should've been the only one apologizing? Not me?"
  2986. "In most cases... okay, maybe all cases... you'd be the one doing that, yes."
  2987. "Still, I know you well enough to understand that you don't mean any harm."
  2988. "Back where I come from, if anypony, er, anyone... did what you've done, it would NOT end up like this."
  2989. >"Then, why don't you treat me like that? I-It's not fair to you..."
  2990. >Her voice trailed off in a sorrowful tone, and she couldn't have sounded any more genuine.
  2991. "You're right. It really isn't. But that's the dynamic we have together."
  2992. "It doesn't matter how many times you try to get in my pants without permission, I care about you."
  2993. "A lot. I mean it."
  2994. >Wrapping an arm around Fluttershy, you brought her close to your chest.
  2995. "Besides, do I look like a pussy to you? I'm not going to whine about having mares on my dick all day."
  2996. >Rapetholomew I of Rapestantinople gazed into your eyes with an otherworldly amount of longing.
  2997. >"Anon, that's... the nicest thing you've ever said to me."
  2998. >"S-Should we-"
  2999. "Go the fuck to sleep? Yeah, we should."
  3000. "Good night, Fluttershy."
  3001. >"G-Good night, Anon."
  3002. >If there was an award for killing the mood, this horse would get it, hands down.
  3003. >Regardless of that, you meant every word of what you said.
  3004. >Your head fell flat against the pillow; Fluttershy's body would soon rest against your chest.
  3005. >As you drifted off into dreamland, you all but forgot about that frightening 'intruder'.
  3006. >Including the weird shit you inadvertently did to those plants.
  3007. >It was just you, a yellow horse, and your bed.
  3008. >Maybe there's a timeline where an alternate you decided to scorn Fluttershy and push her away even further.
  3009. >You're glad it's not this one.
  3010.  
  3011. >Just as quickly as you fell asleep, some cruel god thought it would be funny if you woke up instantly.
  3012. >Similar to the time you were sent careening down a hill after a raccoon attack, your surroundings were different.
  3013. >This is either a dream, or Celestia decided that she wasn't finished with you yet.
  3014. >If it is Celestia, this gives you the opportunity to ask her about that gift she mentioned.
  3015. >You seemed to be inside the hallways of Canterlot Castle, and just like earlier, it was night-time.
  3016. >Rays of moonlight shined through the tall windows, giving the hallway a blue atmosphere.
  3017. >Standing up to your feet, you looked around, but you didn't see anypony.
  3018. "Celestia? Luna? Hello?!"
  3019. "Hey, I'm in your castle! Don't you think it's... y'know, rude to not address me?"
  3020. >No answer.
  3021. "Tch."
  3022. >You sucked your teeth, kicking at the air in slight frustration.
  3023. >"We were just getting to that, Anonymous."
  3024. >"Dost thou have no patience?"
  3025. >Your head turned in the direction of a sudden speaker, and if you're not crazy, it sounded like Luna.
  3026. >She was much closer than you expected her to be, but you're not going to question it.
  3027. "Oh, so you DO know how to greet a guest. For a second there, I thought this was just a dream."
  3028. "Please tell me this isn't a dream."
  3029. >"I can assure you, it is not."
  3030. "Good."
  3031. >"We spoke just yesterday, and already, you're giving my sister grief."
  3032. >You heard Celestia right behind you, and you can't say you're surprised.
  3033. >Curse these magical horses, along with their appearing and disappearing acts.
  3034. >"I would say the problem lies with the guest, and not the host."
  3035. "Really now? Well-"
  3036. >Your body turned as you spoke, and a most unexpected sight destroyed your train of thought.
  3037. >Celestia's huge, white ass, to be specific.
  3038. >Among other things.
  3039. "JESUS-"
  3040. >"How many times have I told you not to say that?"
  3041. >"You're supposed to use MY name, Anonymous. Remember that conversation?"
  3042. "Yeah, well, I'm not gonna' call out your name with your ass in my face!"
  3043. >"What's stopping you, my loyal subject?"
  3044. >After speaking, Celestia proceeded to back, you repeat, BACK UP her flank into you.
  3045. >Her actions had already taken you by surprise, but your mind truly went blank upon contact.
  3046. >You've said it yourself, Celestia has a cake problem, but by God, she was soft.
  3047. >Her flanks were like pillows, hell, even softer than pillows.
  3048. >And now, you can officially say you've touched the ruler of Equestria's nether regions.
  3049. >Or more accurately, you've BEEN touched BY them.
  3050.  
  3051. >Treating this little infraction like you were interacting with Twilight, you kept your composure.
  3052. "Have some tact, would you, Celestia?"
  3053. >It didn't come out as confidently and unshakeable as you had hoped, but you didn't do half bad.
  3054. >Luna giggled quietly behind you, trying to remain as professional as she could.
  3055. >"Someone has their guard up, I see."
  3056. "Somepony, you mean."
  3057. >"I hold audiences and relations with many races, Anonymous. Like yourself."
  3058. >"More so than the average pony would, and my speech reflects that."
  3059. "Get your fat ass off of me."
  3060. >"As usual, you don't waste any time."
  3061. "No, I don't. I'm not sure what reason you called me here for, but I've got a question."
  3062. >"Go on."
  3063. "Your ass."
  3064. >"What about it, Anonymous? Is it to your liking?"
  3065. >She pressed it against you even further, and you almost fucking shuddered.
  3066. "T-That's not what I meant. And lay off the cake."
  3067. >"Saying such things about a mare's weight would upset her, you know."
  3068. "Oh, don't worry, I know. That's the point."
  3069. >"Perhaps Anonymous is not the gentlemen we thought he was." Luna gave her piece, dragging out the conversation.
  3070. >The very, very uncomfortable conversation that you're attempting to escape from.
  3071. >It doesn't seem like Celestia is going to move, and you wouldn't dare lay your hands to push her off of you.
  3072. >Even though it doesn't sound like the worst thing in the world right about now.
  3073. >You're slipping, goddamnit.
  3074. "Remember when you told me about a 'gift' I have?"
  3075. "I think I found out what that gift is."
  3076. >"And what would that be?"
  3077. "Uhh... well, to start, my body suddenly started healing its own injuries."
  3078. "After that, I noticed that plant life grows whenever I touch it."
  3079. "And I don't mean slow growth, I mean FAST growth."
  3080. "In fact, I don't even have to touch it. It happens if I just... focus on it or something..."
  3081. >"Sister, could he finally be awakening to his life magic?" Luna asked, stepping out from behind you.
  3082. >"It would seem so, dear sister."
  3083. "Life magic? What the hell is that?"
  3084. >"Some of the wonderful denizens of Equestria are blessed with this magic."
  3085. >"Earth Ponies, for example, are-"
  3086. "Give me the short version."
  3087. >"Hmph. How rude."
  3088.  
  3089. >Celestia's nose scrunched up as she looked back at you, a disappointed look on her features.
  3090. "Seeing you with that look on your face is priceless, but I'm not saying that to be mean."
  3091. "I just figured, y'know, maybe you'd actually get your butt off of me if you explained it quicker."
  3092. >"Why not attempt to move me yourself?"
  3093. "That would require me to put my hands on you. Already thought that through."
  3094. >"You've touched me once before, Anonymous. During our last meeting."
  3095. "On your back. Not on your ass."
  3096. >"If this position is uncomfortable, you could move aside."
  3097. "I yield to nopony."
  3098. "Also, you're stalling."
  3099. >"I'll be sure to have a word with Twilight soon."
  3100. >"It seems she's told you too much."
  3101. >Celestia finally pointed her royal rump in a different direction, leaning off of you.
  3102. >You're not the same man you were the last time she taunted you.
  3103. >You've changed, you swear.
  3104. >Too much has happened in such a short amount of time.
  3105. "She didn't have to tell me anything. I'm just getting used to this shit."
  3106. "Anyway, like I was asking, abbreviated version, please?"
  3107. >"The life magic in your body, for one reason or another, has finally awakened."
  3108. >"Luna and I detected that magic while it was dormant inside of you, when you first arrived in Equestria."
  3109. >"To better allow you a proper introduction to our world, we withheld this information until it was appropriate."
  3110. "For... one reason or another, you said? You two don't even know why?"
  3111. >"No, we do not, Anonymous. Honestly, we are unsure how you even have access to this magic." Luna said, sounding confused.
  3112. >"What we do know is that, in most cases, the strength of life magic grows exponentially."
  3113. >"Day by day, even." Celestia continued.
  3114. "So... this life magic of mine is only going to get stronger? Doesn't that sound like an issue?"
  3115. >"Only if you allow it to be. Like all magic, it can be controlled." Celestia added, speaking in her typical royal tongue.
  3116. >"If what you say is true, you need only learn how to restrain it."
  3117. "I'm sure I could practice that easily; Maybe testing it out on my house plants would be enough."
  3118. >"That would be wise. As always, we'll keep monitoring over you."
  3119. >"Perhaps, one evening, I'll visit you in your home."
  3120. >Finally, you've been freed from Celestia's proverbial butt prison.
  3121. >And after what she just said, the thought of her being in your room sets you off.
  3122. >Keep your fucking composure.
  3123. "You might break my bed if you sat on it, no thanks."
  3124. >"Oh? What about your-"
  3125. "I'm going to stop you right there. Get me outta' here, please."
  3126. >"Oh, Anonymous. One day, I'll have you all to myself."
  3127.  
  3128. >She closed her eyes, smiling triumphantly like she had just won a prize.
  3129. >You don't like the way she said that, and you don't approve of this horse.
  3130. >Would not recommend.
  3131. >The white-coated mare took her sweet time casting the spell.
  3132. >Somepony, anypony, please.
  3133. >You're humbly requesting to be aroused from your deep slumber.
  3134. >And no, not that kind of aroused.
  3135. >That's bad.
  3136. >Bad, bad, not good.
  3137. >Your father, and his father before him have made that mistake.
  3138. >Which is why they ended up with so many kids.
  3139. >Fortunately for you, humans can't impregnate mares.
  3140. >At least as far as you know.
  3141. >The day when that becomes a possibility will be a frightening one.
  3142. >You're in no way shape or form prepared for kids, especially not right now.
  3143. >However, the idea that you could potentially be the first and last human to ever exist in this land is sad.
  3144. >Celestia decided to spare you, and your magical form slowly faded away.
  3145. >An absolutely diabolical, dubious idea crossed your mind just before you were gone.
  3146. >Walking behind Sunbutt, you promptly brought your right hand down upon her ass, slapping it with the power of God.
  3147. >Luna gasped in shock, and Celestia herself was too shocked to even speak.
  3148. >No amount of words could describe her lack of preparation and embarrassment.
  3149. >Not even the sun could compare to the harshness of her blushing.
  3150. >Two birds struck with one stone; you admittedly wanted to touch her ass and also desired vengeance.
  3151. >"A-Anonymous, you...!"
  3152. >Sunbutt wasn't expecting that AT ALL.
  3153. >On her flank is a bonafide imprint, one as bright as the sun itself.
  3154. "Later, nerd."
  3155. >Luna was a giggling mess; You bet she's never seen Celestia so embarrassed in all her years of living.
  3156. >She probably has, but you'd assume not many individuals have struck her ass so unceremoniously before.
  3157. >Before long, you disappeared completely, ready to return to your unconscious body.
  3158.  
  3159. _
  3160.  
  3161. >23rd.
  3162. >When you did, your eyes opened without a single second of delay.
  3163. >Much like the last time you woke up, your sleep was incredibly restful.
  3164. >Fluttershy is still sound asleep against you.
  3165. >It's surreal, almost creepy, waking up like this.
  3166. >Running your hands along Nutter Butter's mane, you rubbed her like a house pet.
  3167. >You'd rather not wake her up, so you get out of bed as quietly as you can.
  3168. >She looks so peaceful.
  3169. >Like a little angel.
  3170. >Things sure have changed.
  3171. >Your insecurities were eating you alive for a moment, but now, you've got a breath of fresh air.
  3172. >That dream, the struggle against Super Rapist(TM), Twilight in general, and this magic you've awakened to...
  3173. >All things that have opened your eyes somewhat, but you're convinced that the madness is far from over.
  3174. >There was that intruder last night, and even though Fluttershy's presence eased your mind, it's concerning.
  3175. >Heading into the kitchen as quietly as possible, you figured now wouldn't be a bad time to see what AJ left you.
  3176. >You laid eyes on quite the beautiful sight once you opened the fridge.
  3177. >Her gift was a huge apple pie, huge enough that you'd need two other ponies to help eat the whole thing.
  3178. >Next to the pie was a mug of cold cider; Your mind was truly blown.
  3179. >Fucking based apple horse.
  3180. >She deserves a big thanks, so you'll have to start thinking about what to get her.
  3181. "LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOO-"
  3182. >"Anon? G-Good morning. I thought you'd have already left by now..."
  3183. >Fluttershy was stood in the hallway, watching you celebrate.
  3184. "We've got pie and cider, Flutters! Want some?"
  3185. >"Oh, great! Is that what Applejack left you?"
  3186. "Looks like it."
  3187. >Taking the pie out the fridge, you placed it on the dining table, before grabbing some plates, a cup and silverware.
  3188. >While you were setting up breakfast, you happened to glance at the Spider Plant(TM) in the corner.
  3189. "Hey, wanna' see something cool?"
  3190. >"L-Like what?"
  3191. "Check out that plant over there."
  3192. >Fluttershy turned her head in the direction you were pointing, spotting your plant.
  3193. >"That's a very nice plant, Anon. It looks very healthy!"
  3194. >"You didn't tell me you took care of plants!"
  3195. "Even better, watch what happens when I stare at it."
  3196. >You squinted your eyes, focusing in on the plant, trying to imagine your life magic doing its work.
  3197. >The growth had already begun; Although, it was much faster than you had anticipated.
  3198. >That corner of the room was beginning to look like a miniature jungle.
  3199.  
  3200. >"A-Anon?! What did you just do?!"
  3201. "Awesome, right? Apparently, healing isn't the only thing I can do."
  3202. >"Y-You've got to show this to Twilight! This is incredible!"
  3203. "Don't worry, I will. But first..."
  3204. >After showing Fluttershy your newest ability, you took your seat at the dining table, and got ready to eat some pie.
  3205. >But first, you poured some cider into a cup for Nutter Butter.
  3206. >The mug is just fine for you yourself to drink out of; That's all you need.
  3207. "How good are ponies with utensils? I don't need to cut this for you, do I?"
  3208. >"A-Actually, I'm pretty good at using my mouth for things like this."
  3209. "Why doesn't that surprise me?"
  3210. >You watched as the yellow equine took a knife in her mouth, before cutting a small piece of pie for herself.
  3211. "That's all you're gonna' get? You can get some more, y'know. It's just us two."
  3212. >"W-What I've got here is fine. I'm trying to watch my weight, so..."
  3213. "Fat ass."
  3214. >"A-Are fat asses your fetish? Should I start eating more-"
  3215. "Cease and desist."
  3216. >Not long after Fluttershy's newest fetish guessing attempt, your doorbell rang.
  3217. >Who could that be?
  3218. "COMING!"
  3219. >"Say that again, please..."
  3220. "Eat your fucking food."
  3221. >The lock was turned, the door swung open, and the visitor was revealed.
  3222. >It was Rarity.
  3223. >That's a shocker.
  3224. "Rarara?"
  3225. >"Do you have any better nicknames for me, Anonymous?"
  3226. "Yeah, I do. Fashion Horse, Clothing Equine, Ray-Ray...
  3227. >"Ugh, forget I asked... Anyway, how are you doing, darling?"
  3228. >"I figured I'd stop by and try to catch you for breakfa-"
  3229. >Rarity's eyes suddenly homed in on something behind you, and you know exactly what it was.
  3230. >No doubt, she was looking at Nutter Butter.
  3231. "Let me guess. Didn't expect me to let Fluttershy in, did you?"
  3232. >"No, it's nothing out of the ordinary."
  3233. >"You two are dating, after all."
  3234. >"I am, however, confused about the bee costume; Is that some sort of kink?"
  3235. "Fuck off."
  3236. >"Is that apple pie I see?"
  3237. >Here we go.
  3238. >"Anonymous, be a dear and let your old friend Rarity in, would you?"
  3239. "Over my dead body."
  3240.  
  3241. >Rarity simply walked past you, letting herself in, an act that didn't surprise you at all.
  3242. "Y'know, you horses are lucky you're all so adorable."
  3243. >"Thank you for the compliment, darling. I try my best to look stunning."
  3244. >"Rarity!" Fluttershy happily shouted, greeting the white horse.
  3245. >"Hello Fluttershy. Did the two of you sleep well last night?"
  3246. >There's no way she knows.
  3247. >She's probably just asking in general.
  3248. >"A-Actually, we slept together!"
  3249. >And just like that, life has decided that it'd be really funny to prank you.
  3250. >You're a fucking clown.
  3251. "Seriously, Fluttershy?"
  3252. "I was trying to keep that a secret!"
  3253. >"S-Sorry..."
  3254. >Rarity's face started to take on a look that you weren't too excited about.
  3255. "And no, we didn't have sex. She knocked on my window, I let her in, and I went the fuck to sleep."
  3256. "Don't turn this into a gossip thing, please."
  3257. >"When have I ever gossiped about anypony, Anonymous?" Rarity cooed, winking at you.
  3258. "I think the real question is, when have you NOT done that?"
  3259. "Sit down and eat, Rara. I'll get you some tableware."
  3260. >"If it'll please you."
  3261. >Rarity sat her fat plot on one of your chairs, forever staining it with her horsiness.
  3262. >But Fluttershy already did that, and more, so she wouldn't be the first.
  3263. >While you poured a cup of cider for Rarity, you spotted something odd out of the corner of your eye.
  3264. >It was on the other side of your living room window.
  3265. >The sight of it alone nearly made you piss yourself in fear.
  3266. >It's those same eyes from last night.
  3267. >This time, however, you can see more than just the eyes.
  3268. >Looking closely, it's definitely a pony, with a pink-ish coat.
  3269. >You could see a horn, and part of their mane, but before you could pinpoint too many details, they ran away.
  3270. >"Anonymous? Is something wrong?"
  3271. "Uhh... N-No, everything's fine, Ray-Ray."
  3272. "I... thought I saw something weird for a second."
  3273. >Fluttershy and Rarity looked in the direction you were staring at, and of course, they found nothing.
  3274.  
  3275. >"Perhaps you woke up on the wrong side of bed, darling."
  3276. "Actually, I was looking at your fat ass. Lose some weight."
  3277. >"W-Why I never! Hold your tongue, mister!"
  3278. >"Some things should never be said out loud!"
  3279. "Gotcha'. Somepony's been trying to lose weight recently."
  3280. >Rarity covered her mouth with two hooves, but it's too late.
  3281. >There's no undoing what's been done.
  3282. >"I-It's okay, Rarity. I'm trying to watch my weight too."
  3283. "Fat horses, every last one of you."
  3284. >Now you know you're not going crazy.
  3285. >There's somepony stalking you, and it's not Fluttershy.
  3286. "Anyways, I think I've had enough pie."
  3287. "I'm about to head over to Twilight, so if you two are finished, you can just take some pie with you to go."
  3288. >Reaching into a cabinet, you pulled out some tupperware, and proceeded to divide the rest of the pie into smaller pieces.
  3289. >"Just so you know, Twilight should be with Applejack at Sweet Apple Acres right now. She's helping her out with something."
  3290. "You don't say? And here I was, planning to head to her castle. Thanks for the heads up, Ray-Ray."
  3291. >"You're welcome, darling."
  3292. "Take whatever pieces you want, I don't mind."
  3293. >"How generous of you. Now if only you could work on your manners..." There was a bit of friendly hostility in Rarity's words.
  3294. "Manners are for losers. Bye, loser."
  3295. >"Anonymous! You can't just leave like that!"
  3296. "Uhh, yeah, I can. It's my house."
  3297. >You stuck your tongue out at Clothing Equine, just to get on her nerves.
  3298. >"Hmph! I'll be sure to repay the favor later."
  3299. "I'm sure you will."
  3300. "Also, my door locks itself when it's closed, so don't worry about leaving it unlocked."
  3301. "Twilight's gonna' love it when she hears about this new ability I got."
  3302. >"There's something else other than your healing? What in Equestria is it?" Rarity asked, confused.
  3303. "Tell her about it for me, Flutters. I'm gone."
  3304. >"O-Okay, Anon. I'll fu... I mean... talk to you later."
  3305. >Closing the door behind you, you scanned your surroundings, finding nothing out of the ordinary.
  3306. >There's absolutely no sign of that pony, just like last night.
  3307. >If you had a better look at them, maybe you could've identified who they were.
  3308. >From what you've seen, you don't recognize them.
  3309. >Looking around where they once stood is messing with your nerves, so it's time to head over to Sweet Apple Acres.
  3310. >Hopefully, whoever's stalking you takes the hint at some point.
  3311.  
  3312. >It was pleasantly breezy outside, and the temperature was a little higher than normal, but that's fine.
  3313. >This is a big contrast from how rainy and overcast it's been the last few days.
  3314. >Rainbow is all for warmer weather, whereas you prefer it to be just right.
  3315. >But it's not like you engage in rigorous physical activity like AJ and Dash, so the temperature hardly inconveniences you.
  3316. >You technically do, but only when you're running away from rapists or something.
  3317. >Eventually, you arrived at Apple World(TM).
  3318. >The humidity caused you to work up a minor sweat walking over here, but other than that, the short trip here was typical.
  3319. >You did run into Derpy on the way here, however.
  3320. >Cute as always, she dropped a few of her packages and parcels on the ground when she flew over to greet you.
  3321. >Every time you see the clumsy little equine, you end up petting her like a dog.
  3322. >You'd keep that horse as a 'pet' if you could.
  3323. >She probably wouldn't even mind, in fact, you bet she'd enjoy that.
  3324. >At this point in your walk, a conversation could be heard nearby, a little deeper into the apple orchard.
  3325. >You're doing a great job of not accidentally growing the shit out of the trees around here.
  3326. >Speaking of the trees, some of them look like they need some milk.
  3327. >Approaching the voices, it sounded like Applejack, Twilight, AND Rainbow.
  3328. >Rarity said Twilight was helping AJ with something, but you didn't expect Dash to be here, too.
  3329. >Soon enough, you saw the three of them talking amongst each other.
  3330. "Heeeeyyy! AJ! It's me, Anon!"
  3331. >The three of them stopped what they were doing to turn and spot you.
  3332. >"Anonymous? What are y'all doin' here? I don't remember invitin' you over for cider just yet..."
  3333. "What, I need an invitation to come over? Pfft, come on."
  3334. >"I appreciate ya' all the same. Did ya' get a hold of that gift I left in yer' fridge?"
  3335. "Yup. Shared some of it with Rarity and Fluttershy, too."
  3336. >"If y'all ever want some more, just ask and I'll provide."
  3337. >Once again, fucking based apple horse.
  3338. >"What's up, bro? I bet you came here looking for Twilight, didn't you?"
  3339. "Me? Looking for Twilight? Hilarious."
  3340. >"Don't be mean, Anon." Twilight spoke up, giving you those eyes again.
  3341. >She's already in full force, and you just got here.
  3342. >Your almonds weren't prepared for that, but needless to say, they remain unactivated.
  3343. "You will not best me today, Oh Purple One."
  3344. "I noticed the three of you were in the middle of something, what did I intrude on?"
  3345. >"Yesterday, Applejack noticed that some of the trees in the orchard suddenly started dying."
  3346. >"See this one?" Twilight said, pointing a hoof at the tree next to her.
  3347. >That tree was indeed dead; Similar to other ones you saw on your way over here, dead as fuck.
  3348. "Weird."
  3349. >"That's exactly what Big Mac said! These trees are dyin' like it's Winter, but we're smackdab in the middle of Summer!"
  3350.  
  3351. "So, I'm guessing you asked Twilight to come over and check this out?"
  3352. >"Yessiree. But we're stumped! I had Rainbow fly around to help me get a count of all the dead trees." AJ added.
  3353. >"I added up about... 73 dead trees. I think..." Dash said, hurting her own brain.
  3354. >"It's extremely unusual; I asked Applejack if some kind of pest was at fault, but she's never seen anything like this!"
  3355. "Both the nerd AND the farm mare don't know what's going on? That's crazy."
