I like writing ponies. And violent explosions. For some reason, that's not a problem here.


It's been a few months since Greg left the hive to be with the love of his life, Cotton Candy. For now, all seems to be going well: they've managed to hide themselves away on Cotton's little farm and share something of a life together. Too bad fate has other plans for them, in the form of a few nightmares from Greg's past.

Nice little short story...^_^

This is awesome! A bit cliche, but never the less great!

3100567 Thanks! Yeah, I know ChangelingXOC is cliche, but I love it all the same.

Hey, you did bring this in from DA!
Again, nice work XD

3110371 But of course! And thanks! :twilightsmile:

Awesome, me gusta, etc...

One of the best stories I've read since Hard Reset, honestly. I have to give you props for that! :twilightsmile:

3345408 Thank you so much for the fave, the compliment, and the recommendation for reading material! I'll definitely need to look that one up.

334668, all good authors need some sort of compliment.

For you, I'm going to use this story as a future reference. Good job.

3346971 Oh, stop, you're making me blush!

AMAZING! I already love this couple. This might have been helped by my adoration of changelings, but I would still chalk it down to your writing. I would love it if you would write more on these two and really hope that you will.

3392951 I might have something planned in the distant future, but for now, I got a completely different changeling love story slated for after my other fic is all published.

And thanks for the compliment :pinkiehappy:

Will be waiting for Sequel

3650772 You'll be waiting a while then...

ALTHOUGH I am working on a little somethin' with some more changeling romance. :raritywink:

I can't wait till someday you decide to make more of this.

3806714 Okay, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I really want to work with some of my own characters. I have plans to include changeling romance in future stories. But a straight-up sequel to this specific story with this specific pairing is not, at the moment, in the cards. That might change, I'm not sure, but there's a lot more on my plate right now that I'd like to get out of the way first.

I'm sorry, but I don't want to create a sequel just for the sake of creating a sequel. I'm afraid if I try that, it'll come out sucky.

Like Iron Man 2 (shivers) :fluttershbad:

Nice short story. I can imagine it would be a pain to make a sequel, as I believe more about his apparent defection or retirement from the Hive would be in order in any continuance of the story, and not making that part bland would be challenging to say the least.

3875122 To say the very least :facehoof:

I have some idea of what I'd like to do for a sequel that might work, but like I said, I got a lot on my plate right now.

3875122 To say the very least :facehoof:

I have some idea of what I'd like to do for a sequel that might work, but like I said, I got a lot on my plate right now.

[Although it was a short story, it was very well done. Especially the beginning :rainbowwild: .]
[I will give an upvote for better than average one-shot story with good explanations, but no fave since it seems kind of short and rushed.]
[Probably because I love changelings that I am biased that I like this story.]

[Instead of making a sequel, how about changing this story to incomplete and make it longer and better?]

4195615 Well, thank you, kind growling gentleman!

4195643 I don't even know if a sequel is in the cards, honestly.

Being a sucker for changeling romance stories, I found this very enjoyable to read. Especially after finishing with the other Greg and Cotton fic.

The moments they have together in several scenes are so adorable.

This is definitely going in my favs. :twilightsmile:

4282442 Well, thank you! And there's another Cotton and Greg fic? Is that the one where he's on the run and she gives him a big wave of love?

4283422 If you meant "Heart Nom", then yeah. That's the one.

4284039 care to give the link?

4712475 I will, though you just have to search "Heart Nom" and it's the first thing that pops up.

Click here.

Cotton's name is Cotton Patch, not Cotton Candy.

7034217 I know...merry was kind enough to point that out, but insisted it shouldn't really be a big enough deal to go back and change it.

I read this some time ago before I joined fimfiction, it's good that I have found it again.

glad to be found again

Yeah. That sounds silly but this changeling looks like a prediction of Throax by how you disribed him as this was made 2013, while Throax came years later

lol not really at all though

Just saying. Both just have some things in common, like not longer belonlong to the hive, having a friend, such things.

Looking at the picture your story says she is pink but I think she is more magenta color you know dark purple

...hmmm...I suppose...

Awww so a cute couple :heart: Lovely story

“There are feral changelings now!? What do we do!?”

"I beat the tar out of them, while you adore me for it. You've made me stronger than them, just like Shining Armor made Chrysalis stronger than Celestia. Plus 'feral' means we're smarter than them." :rainbowdetermined2:

A thank you
