When Spike returns home early from a gathering he sees something that causes him to go running from their little home...the sight of Twilight and Caramel together.

Once Twilight finds him, shivering and cold, she decides to try to address his fears...by giving him The Talk.

But, to Twilight's surprise, it may not be a talk about basic biology that Spike needs...perhaps something far more important is on his mind.

Only three words can possibly do this justice:

"That shit's heavy."

#2 · 160w, 6d ago · 5 · · Chapter 2 ·

Is it terrible if I'm just going to hand this story to my kids when it's time for 'The Talk'? :derpytongue2:

#3 · 160w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I think I can understand where Spike's coming from.  I used to be pretty protective of my mom as a child.  It didn't help that my instincts were often correct about the guys she was interested in.  Anyways, this is a very well-thought out story.  Kudos.  :twilightsmile:

While I think your child's school should handle the biology of it (unless you're a biologist or a doctor), it needs to be you who puts context to everything.  Unless your kid doesn't love you or something, they're most likely to take this lesson to heart if it's given to them by their parents.

I'm very glad you found it so engaging!:pinkiesmile:

>>34611

Not at all! What it says is that you a loving, caring parent who wants the best for his children and who will also owe me royalty fees!:twilightsheepish:

>>34875

Though I myself didn't share your experience, many of my friends did, so I can sympathize with where you're coming from. I thank you for reading and commenting!:twilightsmile:

Poetry.  Pure, f***ing poetry.

Beautiful.

On no...Not the dreaded words guaranteed to embarrass Pony and Dragons everywhere!

It's even worse than a mare telling a colt to hold her purse! IT'S!!!!

Thank you so much for saying so!:pinkiesmile:

Well...yes. It doesn't quite go to that same place, but there's plenty of embarrassment involved. :twilightsheepish:

Holy crap that was a good read.

I never fail to turn into a blubbering big wreck about half-way through this chapter. I am not ashamed! :twilightsmile:

This story was the first that I wrote, almost as an experiment, where the emotion rather than the plot was supposed to drive the story. I'm very glad that the evidence that you presented seems to suggest it was a successful effort!:twilightblush:

#13 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>164706 Well I certainly think it was successful! I'm looking forward to any new stories you might share with us, too.

#14 · 149w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I just had a feel about having a daughter and having to give the talk... I'm locking her in the basement!:pinkiecrazy: I hope I'll be ready for that feel IRL. :pinkiesick:

Glad I could get ya' to have some small emotion. I don't recommend the "basement" route though!:rainbowlaugh:

#23 · 135w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Ah this was good lots of emotions, some of concern, some of shock, some of humor, and some of tears. This is just as good as your "A Sweet Taste of Cake" fic, you're really good at these. :eeyup:

Also I loved the idea of the little cartoon Twilight's inside her mind that was priceless. :rainbowlaugh:

#24 · 135w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Yeah, I loved writing the scene with the little cartoony Twilights, that was fun!:twilightsmile:

#25 · 135w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I was really worried something even worse would happen. :ajsleepy: This is my shame.

Really great fanfic! I loved it! :pinkiehappy:

Dude this was something more emotional and well written than I expected. It seems like an unoriginal idea for a fic, but you've made it very good so far :).

#28 · 135w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This was such a lovely story :). Did not turn out how I expected. You...you know how to reach the heart.

I'm very glad that you thought it turned out so well! I've been called a very emotional writer, and I'm glad that my writing style worked for you! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment!:twilightsmile:

Pretty nice story, Descendant. Like a few of the other readers, I didn't know exactly where this one was going to go but the resolution made it worth checking out. Well done.

Thank you. The family-like relationship between Spike and Twi is the most important to me in the series, and in this story I was hoping to define it. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!:twilightsmile:

A lot of people in the fandom want to treat sex as a joke... I thought I'd take a different tact with this. I'm glad that came across.

Wow. Poor Spike.

He's in such an unusual position, not knowing what his relationship is with Twilight, only knowing that he loves her like family. I really wanted to play on the emotions of a boy in this situation. Thanks for reading and commenting!:twilightsmile:

I'm very glad that the story was emotionally involving for you. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I'm gonna steal that image macro too... :raritywink:...

You are a genious!

I had a stupid grin on my face in the metro while imagining the littl' Twilights army, and it's coming back with a vengeance as I am writing this.

At first I was all like :twilightoops: "awkward", but then I all like :raritydespair: "ITS SO BEAUTIFUL", but in the end I was all like :pinkiesad2: "AWWW SUPER HAPPY ENDING." fantastic job on the story; I love the way its driven entirely on emotion instead of plot, you don't tend to find to many stories like that, so it was a nice breath of fresh air. Again fantastic job on the story, I give it 5 derpy faces :derpytongue2: :derpytongue2: :derpytongue2: :derpytongue2: :derpytongue2:

Thank you so much! I really have tried to make their emotions stand up as the most important part in this, and I'm glad it spoke to you. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment!:twilightsmile:

I cant really say I agree with spikes line of thinking, he easily overacted and rushed out creating his own assumptions lol

Yes, well... that's what little kids do in such situations, isn't it? I hope you liked the rest of the story, though...
