Spiders. Oh, how I hate spiders. And yet Luna insists on keeping one as a...pet.

Just a little fun story to keep my skills sharp, so don't expect it to last very long!

This is wonderful. :pinkiehappy:

Very funny, hope it continues! :yay:

Oh yes you have princess :D

I like where this is going.

Dennis nice work. I await the updates. :P :moustache:

Oh spiders they're not so bad.:pinkiecrazy:

Poor Celly. :pinkiesad2:

I have the distinct feeling that Luna adopted Atticus because Celestia is afraid of spiders. :trixieshiftright:

Celly,  it just takes one innocent pass with a vacuum and them spider confetti.

HAHAGAAAAA SPIDER SPIDER GET IT OF AAAAAAAHHHHHH

What's so scary about spiders...?

I mean they aren't cuddly, but they aren't EVIL, silly filly Celestia. :pinkiehappy:

This is a pretty funny story, I hope it continues!  :twilightsmile:

Intriguing.:pinkiesmile:

Awaiting further releases.:fluttershysad:

hahahahaha! that was awesome!

if had i choice i would say; include others, like twilight, that would be absolutely hilarious. they don't need to be major characters of course, just occasionally be involved.

:rainbowlaugh::yay::rainbowlaugh::ajsmug::derpytongue2::rainbowlaugh::raritywink: This story compeletly made my day, I'll seriously be awaiting more of this awesomness love it!

Uh oh. Luna broke Celestia. We need a Psychologist in here! @_@

Death incarnate, wrapped in scary? Sounds about right. Ugh, little monsters.

why ever thing is bigger and eight

Ha, I wrote a chapter once where Celestia's only scene was to have a horrible flashback of "Spiderses" as she's severely Arachnophobic

I freaking love spiders. And this little freakout is brilliant. Insta-fave. Make more chapters, please. :3

By the way, this is just a suggestion, but, make Atticus intelligent... seemingly 1 step ahead of Celestia's every move. Make it a true war between bitter enemies, until it gets "castle shattering" out of control...

This is very promising. I do so enjoy you're writing style.

Also

I gazed back intensely, narrowing my eyes, not daring to blink, for if I did, he would have shot onto my face in an instant.

My cousin used to have a Goliath Turantula a few years ago. So I know that feeling very VERY well.

Reminds me of another story: A Giant Huntsman Spider Scares Ponies

"Death incarnate, wrapped in scary."

If you ask me, that's a pretty badass description of a tarantula! :rainbowdetermined2:

There's nothing wrong with me, is there? :pinkiecrazy:

I enjoy a good game of brick tag:moustache: *launches brick* YOU'RE IT!:pinkiecrazy:

CDR

Oh you have got to be kidding me.  I've thought about stories where the mane 6 get their minds swapped with their pets.  And mabye the royal sisters too.  But the problem was that Luna didn't have a pet.

Thanks to you, now she does.  He he he.


*After reading*

Oh my, this is hilarious.  If I ever do get to writing something about mind swap with pets, this is definitely going to make it glorious!  I tell you, I won't be able to stop laughing.

I want a brick now

I guess you've been reading "Hyperbole and a Half".

Don't worry Celestia, you aren't the only pony who hates spiders.

Whatever are you people talking about?

How could you not love this face? :scootangel:

Bwahahahaha!!! Oh, Celestia!!:rainbowlaugh::trollestia:

Oh, Celestia, you just have to establish clear boundaries and rules for luna's pet.

Y'know, perfectly reasonable things like "if that thing ever touches me, I will use the sun itself to swat it away."

The death of the whole world would be worth it.

I used to fear spiders. I turned that negative emotion into the much healthier alternative called "seething, burning, passionate anger". When I find a spider in my room, I spray it with rubbing alcohol before immolating it.

What I'm saying is: KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!

i feel with celly here, i am severly arachnaphobic, and i couldnt even be in the same room with one, especially a taranchula *shudders* and after that face hugger thought...

(note to self, i would rather fight an army of xenos than a taranchula or facehugger)

you nailed my fear perfectly, too bad i read too far into stuff so now i will be paranoid thinking this story is a bad omen

>>1337877 EVERYTHING! :raritycry:

Another fanfic by Dennis the Menace? I must read! *realizes I'm going to Choral society... ASAP* ... Heh. *clicks read it later button* Looking forward to it.

EDIT:  Why, Fluttershy, WHY?! What were you thinking?! I feel for Celestia; spiders scare the shit out of me. Kill it with a brick, Celestia!

It sat on her head as she ate her salad

I DEMAND THAT SOMEONE DRAWS THIS IMMEDIATELY

Oh, what sordid stories we write.

Celestia's afraid of spiders...

Luna gets one for a pet...

Celestia's about to be the first alicorn to give birth to kittens.

Epic story. Can't wait for the next one... Even though I have to. :pinkiehappy:

I hate spiders. They are EEEVIL.

I have a "pet" spider living inside my double-paned window, dutifully guarding her little egg sack. I've fed her a fly or two, but she usually doesn't seem to need my help, since I don't have a screen in place. Also, the sort of people who kill any spider they see automatically lose a few levels of respect from me. Not much worse than mindlessly killing something simply because it exists. And that's coming from someone who once woke up to a spider biting my face.

Anyway, pointless tangents aside, amusing story so far.

Spiders are natures stalkers.  They are there even though you cant see them and when you do see them they are just lurking about in some dark corner.  And on occasion they decide to just 'drop in' on what ever you are doing and ruin your day.   I dont like spiders, but I like this story.  Please, keep the creepy crawly comedy coming. (Say that five times fast)

Wow this is amazing please write more i shall await updates :pinkiehappy:

>>1338693 I would like to explode that picture 9002 times make whatever references wanted here

NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE

Atticus.

Rhymes with abacus.

I saw what you did there.:pinkiehappy:

Sounds like the reaction my sister in law had when she walked into my computer room and saw Annabel.  (Mexican red-knee that I'm watching for a friend)  I look forward to more.

Like spiders... but I love this. :rainbowlaugh:

Celestia, you're not the only one.. :twilightoops:

People think I'm psyco when I see a tiny wolf spider and I back up like, 10 feet.

"Just step on it!"

Oh, hell no, I'm NOT getting any one of my limbs near that.. thing.

You know what's more fun than spiders? A brick. A brick is so useful. You can use it for all sorts of things. Like crushing spiders.

I literally lol'ed at that line :rainbowlaugh:

the pets have been doubled! Oh Celestia what were you thinking :trollestia:

Aww, how bad could it be it's just a... wait... tarantula?

OH DEAR GOD KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!:raritycry:

I feel your pain Celly.

Oh God I'm not going to be able to sleep after reading this.

Awesome.  The immortal sun goddess, who's lived thousands of years, probably fought countless wars to establish peace, beloved monarch of Equestria, has arachnophobia.  Genius.  And the brick bit was hilarious.

I personally think that spiders are supercool, but hey.  Whatever.  It is what it is.  "It's just a spider; I should really just relax."

   Lovingly,

What is that I see? An "incomplete" tag? Oh, happy day!
