I write pony words. Millions of them. Some people actually think they might be worth reading. I am very thankful for that. Also, I have a Patreon now?


As with every living creature, once every year, Princess Celestia has a day that commemorates the anniversary of her birth. Given that she is blessed with many wonderful friends and family members, she receives many gifts on her birthday. Some she likes more than others, while some are rather odd.

On this one thousand seven hundred and nineteenth birthday of hers, she receives a large stuffed squid plushie.

She is perplexed.

This is a sweet little story, I always enjoy a good slice of life.

That was cute. Now I want a large squid plushy that makes sounds akin to a pony gurgling.

Huh. I'd have blamed Discord, but that would probably have meant something wildly ridiculous instead of ordinary. Blueblood being a thoughtful pony, without asking for anything in return? Perhaps he did learn something from the Gala Incident after all. :)

Hope you don't mind, but I added this story to the "Good Prince" Group. I thought it fit.
I liked your story overall. Wonderful and family-ish. Good job!

Skydoesminecraft: A squid! Kill it! Kill it!
Me: Cool your jets Sky. We are here to observe, not to kill a stuffed squid.
Sky: But it wants to steal my budder.
:facehoof: Why did I bring him here?

God dammit, I'm actually starting to like Blueblood.

3823927 The real I read this fic was because it was added to 'The good prince' group. It does sort of ruin the surprise of who got Celestia the squid, but I still liked this story nonetheless.

Hehe, many more of these stories with a decent Prince BB and I'll start to actually like the guy! :twilightsmile:

Excellent story, like :trollestia: said, just the right amount of silly.

not exactly sure why you chose that ending, but it doesn't really lower the value of the story, so i cause i can't complain. I do however, very much desire a stuffed squid for my birthday, especially if it is as big as me. How could one not want that

I'm gonna go to the store and buy a stuffed squid.

Is this story part of a particular Non-Bronyverse? Also, you misspelled "roumors".

This was wonderfully adorable, and I liked how Blueblood got some compassion to his character while still being Blueblood.

Excellent. Short, happy, and to the point-- however silly the point actually was. I'm happier for having read it, while I sit here and relax after a long day at work. Thank you. :heart:

Eh, I lost interest after 4 paragraphs. The first one killed the flow for me.

blueblood why aren't you acting like a gentlemanly troll javascript:smilie(':unsuresweetie:');

3824377 I misspelled it as "roumors" or I misspelled it as "rumors?" Also, this is not Non-Bronyverse. I just used the names.

I was thinking that Scootaloo was going to burst from the Squid like an Alien out of someone's stomache. Cute one shot nonetheless.

3824409 Glad you liked it. :twilightsmile: Fun little one-shots like this are good and refreshing once and a while, I think.

So adorable!

My brother made one of these 10ft squids. It's forever in the way around our house. Damn marine biology students.

He's called Keith. That is, the squid, not my brother.

That was adorable. Cute story.:twilightsmile:

I know how Celestia feels! I own a moray eel plushie, of all things, and its the most strangely adorable thing I've ever seen.

I was SO thinking Discord, it being from Blureblood was such a shot from left field

A story that has Blueblood in it, that doesn't make depict him as an utterly insufferable knave? Yes please.


I don't see why people are downvoting honesty. You weren't even being a dick about it.

He may be a twit but I never doubt that he loves his aunt. Very well done


So you... took time to comment about it anyway? :trixieshiftright:

Some people get mad when others don't like the things they do. Such is life.

Is it just me or was I not the only one expecting Discord to be a part of this somehow? Loved it, by the by.

... Bravo, Blueblood. Bravo. *slow-clap*

3824412 Well you missed out, sadly. I want a stuffed squid now...

Uh, yes. My comment is evidence of this.

You did it Blueblood... you did it

That was rather cute. I liked your Blueblood, too. Just warm and fuzzy all-round.

ctrl-F roumors suggests that it is the first one.

This seems REALLY familiar.... :rainbowhuh:

That you misspelled it as 'roumors'.

I'd heard from roumors

3825156 Really? I didn't get it from anything. The nicer Blueblood interacting with Celestia was inspired by a fic called No Quixote Here, but the basic idea for the fic was all me as far as I'm aware.

Normally such an action would have required her direct involvement, for she was the princess of the sun, and it was her primary job to raise said sun after her sister lowered the moon, but today was not a normal day.

Feels a bit run-on.



Luna tilted her head at her sister. "Dost thou appreciate the gift, sister?"

Calling it, Luna is the squid-giver.

Edit: Guess not. :rainbowwild:

"Im fine with the idea." Celestia's smile widened.


All in all, this was a fun story. I liked seeing Blueblood as a pony, and not as a paragon of .. jerk-ness-ocity.

This made me smile :twilightsmile:

This is one of the rare 'Blueblood isn't a dick' fics and it was fantastic, glad not everyone sees him as one. This was adorable and worth reading. :twilightsmile:

[Captain Celestia Sparrow]..... *Holds up her new gift. Licks it in confusion before staring at it oddly.* Squid. Why is it a squid?[/CCS]:unsuresweetie:

"He's not that dumb as to attempt to harm me in my own palace."

Bullshit he's not. That Griffon's all kinds of stupid. :rainbowlaugh:

I was kind of expecting the squid to be a joke gift from TD, but finding out that Blueblood, OF ALL PONIES, was the one who got it for her was the oddest surprise.

Excellent one-shot.

I HAVE THAT FUCKIN' TOY :pinkiegasp:

Now this was a good story to end the day with.

Man that's too bad. I just so happen to have a giant octopus that makes a sound akin to a pony gurgling, but not a squid. So close.

Daw, Blueblood not being a ponce. I love it!

And here I thought making Blueblood not a condescending ass was against the rules of Bronyism.


>thumbs up

Blueblood? Being nice? :rainbowhuh:

Just like the squid, though... this story is the perfect amount of silly! Good work. :pinkiehappy:
