I never thought that this day would come; the day that my dad would finally find someone to be with after being alone for so long. Not only that, but the one that he found, the one that he's decided to spend the rest of his life with, was none other than Princess Celestia.

I do feel happy for Dad, really I do, but I still didn't like the idea of my father getting remarried.

The thing is, though... I have no idea why I feel this way.

This story takes place in a universe where the human and pony worlds are in close contact, and the ponies are anthro in this story.

This is my first time writing a non-comedic story, so let's see how this goes. And because I know someone will ask:

This story is NOT connected to any of my previous stories.

Cover art by me.

This is the most original story of stories I have ever read
I am most intrigued and imptient for the next chapter

Holy shiitake mushrooms this was more then a great idea for a story...it was a necessity!

and why does the human on the cover remind me of Light from Death Note?

Well then this story so far has my interest, so I'll give it a fav and like and see were it takes me.


Just when you thought the HiE concept was getting bogged down, someone comes along and breathes new life into it. Well done, sirrah, and keep up the good work! I'm actually getting excited to read more. :twilightsmile: :yay: I just hope there isn't a 'Blueblood objects to their marriage and tries to break them apart' thing.

Edit: A two shot? Nah son, this needs to be developed into a full length story. You got gold in yer hands!

I would comment but I think everyone else already said what I was going to say. Nice job and I can't wait to see what happens.


I really like the two different thoughts that goes through his mind, it will be really interesting to see what it will lead to in the future :pinkiehappy:

Damn! Not bad! Can't wait for the next chapter!

Wow... this is surely new... having Celestia as a stepmother would be quite....interesting.... (I just wish they weren't anthro otherwise they are just humans with a twist... but you cant have everything...)

This is probably the most interesting concept I've read yet, I like it. :twilightsmile:

it is absolutely perfect.

What would painfully awkward is if Celestia could read minds....but thank god clich├ęs don't exist in this story!.....Right?

Well this seems interesting.
Hope he can find a real friend he can vent to. Otherwise all of that will just continue to build until it just explodes out.

3932341 Ya, I like over bearing aunt, but I just don't see the point of anthros. It just makes being a human so boring.

This...is...new! I LIKE IT! Now I want to see this concept, but done when Devin or someone like him was very young, like a toddler. The story would be him growing up with Celestia as a stepmom with a human father. That would be even more interesting!

second and last part? Awwww I wanted to know more, specially to know that, if Celestia its her new mommy, does that mean he is now a prince? Why I can't stop imagine him wearing a crown and after the honeymoon its over, had another ceremony to announce him as prince, in fact, this was a royal weeding, that goes more than a normal one, why did the fathers wasn't crow prince of Equestria along side his son? He marry Celestia he IS a prince now.

I'm so confused

A TWO PART?!?!?!?!?

Only two parts?
Care to explain?
I really like this and MOV but would you continue this story after you finish MOV?

This is only gonna be 2 parts becsuse this was just a quick idea that I had and I thought that it warranted a short story.

After MOA, I plan on writing Shades of Night along with Alternate Perspectives.

This story has way more potential than just two parts. It would certainly be something after MOA finishes, though I can see how the overall plot would be quite similar. I'll let it slide.

This time. :pinkiecrazy:

Seriously though, good story, as always. :twilightsmile:

I can feel a tidal wave of emotions in this short chapter. I really like that. Shall the dam burst in the next chapter? I hope to find out.

For a moment, I thought of accusing you of ripping off the obviously superior Sketchy Unicorn and his work of art My Overbearing Aunt.

And then I realized that I would have been accusing you of ripping off yourself.

Man I'm dumb.

Wow I like this story I can't wait to read more of this story:twilightsmile: keep up the good work.:rainbowlaugh:

Another good story from you? I will favorite this too then.:scootangel:

not bad... would like to see how this thing rolls

I can actually picture the teacher being human and being ridiculously nice to him because of the wedding.

Yeah he really needs to talk to someone about that voice in his head, sounds like he's got a nasty case of possession

3974929 I agree....maybe talk to Dr Luna?

If it manifested in his dreams then maybe, but while he's a wake? Need someone else


Went to sleep disappointed that the story was closing but accepted it. Then I woke up and saw it was going to be continued! Why must you play with my heart so?! :raritydespair: Although in this case, I guess that's a good thing! :rainbowlaugh:

As for Devin, I can see him smoothing things over with Celestia superficially; he doesn't really mean it, but he knows that it will just get him in more trouble and attract unwanted attention if he keeps having outbursts at them like that. Keep em bottled away for as long as possible. After all, Celestia is a princess - who is he to make her worry when she has an entire nation to run? And his dad would want to spend more time with his new wife, the honeymoon and all that. Who is he to get in the middle of all that. I can see him just trying to keep out of their attention, but not so much as it ends up doing the complete opposite.

Oh thank Celestia, you're going to continue this. This is the best way to wake up in the morning

3974966 Who knows, based on the theme of hatred and jealousy, it could very well be Nightmare Moon. :trixieshiftright:

Depends if you go with the possession theory, hell for all we know it could be the demon that got Sunset, or Discord for that matter. Guess we'll have to wait and see, defiantly adds a interesting conflict beyond teenage angst

3975403 :eeyup: Eeyup. Plus who knows, he may chuck in some other romance along the way. :derpyderp2:

The original ending was good. But this is much better!!! His feelings about his new step mom should not be resolved in two chapters!!

We'll see, though it seems right now the only romance is between his father and step-mother.

Aww, so Devin and Celestia didn't had their dance? men a part of me really wanted to see that, oh well I agree develop this a bit more its best even if now I fell terrible for Celestia this is her special day and after that little out burst she fell sad all the time.
I hope that at least the next morning Devin can at least see that Celestia is really sad and hurt and try to at least cheer her up, at least with a hug, just one little show of affection, that its the only thing that I ask, that Devin its trying, just a hug could work for now

I think they can't have a honeymoon yet, remember the coronation, I bet he and Devin had a lot of preparations that need to practice before being crown and THEN they could go to their honeymoon leaving Luna in charge of the nation and looking up for Devin, now that I think about it, he didn't talk to Luna I wonder how those 2 will feel to one another

After posting the original version of this chapter, I reread the story in its entirety, and the pacing just didn't sit well with me, especially in chapter two, so after mulling it over for a bit, I decided to re-do the chapter's ending and extend the story.

Damn. People are already predicting future chapters. :ajbemused:

Not exactly prediction when you say you are going to put a coronation, that itself its a big deal, you can put 2 and 2 together, but anyway sorry for that I will keep quiet, I only ask for a hug next chapter during breakfast, please? thanks

3975442 well. .. thumbs up for going extended

This feels better. It flows better than previously.

The only difference is that I still felt that angry part of my clawing at my mind.

Whoops! That should be "me" not "my". Great chapter, otherwise.


3975446 It isn't really predicting, more like speculating, wondering what's going to happen next. That's half the fun! :rainbowlaugh:
