I dabble in everything. Sometimes that means I write ponies. I have a Patreon and a Discord.

Sequels1

This story is a sequel to Honey Pie


Pinkie Pie and Sweetcake ought to be able to live happily ever after. After all, he helped save Ponyville, and Celestia herself publicly acknowledged him as her subject, despite the fact that he's a changeling. The ponies of Ponyville should welcome him with open arms. It turns out, however, that the fact that some of them don't is going to be the least of his problems.

*INTERNAL SCREAMING* CANNOT WAIT TO READ!

Sweet. A new one for when I get back around to reading.

~Skeeter The Lurker

To me, it seems like we have some new hives springing up.

Loyalty is thumbing up a sequel to a good story before reading the first chapter!:pinkiehappy:

Ok Spark, you are a legend, What I want to see is Minder become like a sister to Sweetcake. ;3 Keep it up.

Its here!

*Hyperventilates and then faints*

4214421 It's actually the same old hive, with Chrysalis causing trouble as usual.

:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: Thanks, you guys!

4214497 My readers make me absurdly happy. I just hope everyone still likes it as much when it's all finished and posted. (There is always this paranoia that I'm going to ruin everything whenever I post a new bit.)

4214509 Minder is one of those things that unexpectedly awesome. I didn't originally plan for her being in the story at all, but she's turned into a pretty good character, although still mostly a background one.

I liked the first one. I also like the second one. :pinkiehappy:

hes growing? and hes a rare male from that Q A session, so hes becoming a king?

Glad to see a sequel :)

4214584 Ah, you must have missed that bit in the Q and A. :twilightsmile:

Technically he's actually female, but he doesn't think of himself that way.

Sweetcake isn't actually a male.

4214543 You've earned our trust. I want to see what you do with the Honeyverse. I like your Changelings, love to hate your Chrysalis, Adore your mane6, Sweets is awesome in his oddness!

I take full and gleeful responsibility for the title of this story. :trollestia:

I look forward to the rise of Queen Sweetcake the Tasty.

Good to see the sequel up and running.

Sweetcake can be whatever gender he wants. Not just because he's a changeling, though that certainly helps.

May we all rejoice in the overthrowing of Chrysalis new age for changelings happiness that is sure to come!

HIP HIP HOORAY! Sweetcake is a hero to all small changeling hives!!

Yay! Part 2 is here! On a bit of a side note from that, I can't help but think Sweetcake's cutiemark looks funny on him, and kind of funny on its own. Don't know why exactly.

Thank you! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::twilightsmile::raritywink:

4214680
We'll just have to wait and see what happens. :twilightsmile:

4214773 Well, it doesn't exactly match his color scheme. But then he is no Rarity, he doesn't have much of a fashion sense.

Wow!:pinkiegasp: So far this looks like it might be even better than the first one.:pinkiehappy:

And the story continues, with something hidden just beneath the surface. Just the way I like it. Looking forward to more.
Keep up the good work. Deus tecum.

Now giving odds to possible plot points:

Sweetcake becomes an under-queen - 3-1
Sweetcake eventualy becomes a full queen - 7-1
Minder becomes an under-queen - 4-1
Sweetcake is forced back into the hivemind and unable to break free - 3-1
Chrysalis appologises for her actions, redemes herself (and her hive) and they all have a party - 3720-1

4214915 My bet? Sweetcake was becoming under-queen, Minder was becoming under-queen, they joined into one hive-mind, struggled for dominance, Sweetcake is now queen of that hive-mind.
Why? Clear dominance struggle, Sweetcake clearly won, afterward Minder started getting wiffle-waffley and looking for Sweetcake's approval.

:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: It is absolutely delightful to see people speculating intelligently on what's happening in one of my stories! I won't say if you're right or wrong, of course, but I will say that you have presented a very cogent argument. :twilightsmile:

:pinkiegasp: We've got a new story from you:pinkiehappy::yay:

Anyways, this is great and I can't wait to see what you bring to us next!

ooo sweetcake is becoming an under-queen now that's something i didn't expect!:pinkiehappy:

Mister Sweetcake Changeling is the best changeling in the UNIVERSE!!!

Con-rat-jew-patience! This is officialy an exelent story!

So Sweetcake is becoming a king of the hive?

Fun read and needin more. Keep it up :derpytongue2:

RC

Well artamis(your cover picture is prinnce artamis from an a cross and arrow) you have a well writen story hear. Honestly have minder and the others move to ponyvill and aid with the ponys they represent.(minder=fluttershy, sweetcake=pinkie, exct exct.)so that they have a hive home and a place for emotions to be gained.

Just my opinion/preferred method, but the last sentence.

It was far more than Chrysalis would have done in your place, was her reply.

That underlined part. When there are two characters having a 1 on 1 conversation, there's usually no need to point out who's talking cause it's just those two talking.
Now if somepony like Pinkie Pie were to enter the conversation, that would be fine.
But since it's just Sweetcake and Minder having the thought convo, we didn't really need that underlined part unless Minder was doing something physically (that showcases or exhibits her emotions. ex: blushing, rubbing hooves together nervously, etc.).

The reason why I pointed this out is because this is pretty much just unneeded filler words.

It's back, it's bigger, it's better, and I'm excited to see where it goes. :pinkiesmile:

Yes!!! I'm soooo glad that this sequel is finally out! I shall await the next chapter with great anticipation! /)^3^(\

4215447 You'll have to read on and see. :twilightsmile:

Glad you all are so excited about it. :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy:

If this new hive were to find a way to accept ponies into the hive mind, do you think Celestia would actually allow it? It would make the royal guard more efficient and many day to day problems such as land disputes and arguments would vanish. Then at the same time there should be an extent to which mind reading is denied to ensure privacy. IDK I'm sure you could find a way to work it out.

4215836 Well, as I mentioned in the Q and A, Pinkie's bond with Sweetcake is a really unusual thing. It's not terribly likely to happen again.

You Sir have a talent. I've been waiting for this story for a while. Such a beautiful story.:pinkiesad2::facehoof::raritydes:raritycry::fluttercry::fluttershyouch::fluttershbad:pair:

Oh...the Sex tag. We meet again.

If anyone can pull a miracle to mend my relationship with that tag and not make me regress into a fiery ball of hate, it's you, SPark...but it will still be a miracle. With that ominous and melodramatic note aside, great chapter! Very illuminating, and I can tell that this story is starting to take on more of a traditional, information-based structure rather than the previous story's heavily emotional structure. While that does make it less unique in my biased view, it definitely helps to flesh out the world you are building.

...unless of course this chapter is intentionally different in style, in which case, you probably already know all of that. And by the way, about that story I am (was?) going to use your concepts for, I'm not too sure if it's going to get off of the ground since I quit writing four months ago when my depression returned. Speaking of which, I wanted to mention that you have an absolutely perfect understanding of how (my) depression feels:

"I try so hard to be happy all the time, but I can't! I just can't. I want to make everypony smile. I want to always be happy and cheerful and cheer everypony up, but it gets harder and harder! I've been pretending, acting like I was cheery when I was really crying inside for a long time now. I guess I can't pretend anymore."

Anyway, said depression has kept a firm grip on my creative abilities, as I used to use writing for emotional catharsis but I can't anymore, due to a restricted mood range (compared to a sleep-deprived mood range). Honey Pie gave me inspiration, but I'm not sure that's enough. I'm going to stop now before I get too melodramatic again, but I just wanted to share my thoughts on the chapter as well as the fic I'm hoping to write. Great chapter, and I am both excited and apprehensive for the next ones due to my old enemy being among the tags. :derpytongue2:

4216114 I've tried to handle the sexual matter as tastefully as I can. Everyone has different levels of comfort though, so I can't make any firm promises whether I'll do something that you dislike or not. I will repeat my promise that it won't be clop, and it won't be gratuitous. :twilightsmile:

I really feel you on the depression, I'm having a pretty good spell the last little while, but there have been entire years in which I haven't written anything. It sucks, but you do the best you can with it. Every now and then venting about it results in something good, (like this story) but it still sucks pretty hard. I hope you get feeling better eventually, whether you end up writing that story or not. :pinkiesmile:
