"I'm starting to believe you don't have a heart." – some author, after a review of his fic.

I am a bat pony. I know what you think about me – I'm intimidating, I fly at night, drink blood, scare little fillies... Well, actually I'm nothing like that, though such reputation often comes in handy.

But sometimes it's so hard to maintain it...

I don't think the lack of surprise at the ending harmed the story, but if the Mysterious Purchase was meant to be a surprise then the cover art spoils it. If it was meant to be a bit of a twist, you could probably get another image and embed the original cover art at the end instead.

So you scare fillies, but not colts? That's sexist.

:fluttershbad:

I guess fillies taste better :trollestia:

The chimera agrees. Filly fillets for everypony!

I liked it. But I may be biased. Bat ponis are best ponis.

I feel so honoured! This is really sweet. I actually would love to see more of this. ^.^

Congrats, you just got a watcher.

Great little oneshot. Not a big reveal at the end, but who cares? Slice of life, baby.

Not going to sugar coat this at all. THAT... WAS.. CUTE! faved, and liked.:pinkiehappy:

It's a fun little read, thanks for sharing and have a like!

I read this before it was in the feature box.

I'm hip!

Also, batponies are too adorable to be scary.

Anything in socks is adorable. There is no contest, Even Sombra or Nightmare Moon

Hmm, I've never seen Sombra in socks... *checks derpibooru, finds this:*

:twilightoops:

4409556 Oh God. I don't know if I should laugh or curl into a ball and cry :applecry:

4409565 Y'know what? I'm gonna do both. :rainbowlaugh: :fluttershbad:

4409627 4409597 4409565
Yeah, I think it's the best way... :rainbowlaugh::raritycry:

4409556 I looked at the picture and NOPED the fuck out of there.

From that picture, you'd think it'd be a clopfic. Good thing it's not.

4409908
Hmm, now I know why wanted to have so many slaves...

4409953
Well, according to the description (of which I wasn't aware when I found this picture), she's a lewd partygirl...

But remember, it's only because the nights are cold... :scootangel:

we need more bat pony fanfictions:raritywink:

Oh gawd I thought she was going to buy something else.

the cuteness!!!!:pinkiehappy:

WHY IS THIS NOT FEATURED ALREADY?!
This deserves to be featured so badly... :rainbowkiss::heart:

This is a very cute, enjoyable little story. :twilightsmile:
The paragraphs about her traditionalist mother and accent were very Pratchett-esque, and reminiscent of the Überwald League of Temperance (a.k.a. the Black Ribboners). Kudos! Have an up-vote! :pinkiesmile:

A handful of minor grammar errors that I spotted:

but it's sometimes better when they fear of us.

The wording is a little awkward. Perhaps: "when they do fear us."?

Also, it makes great jokes.

should be: "Also, it makes for great jokes."

as good in trainspotting

Should be: "as good at trainspotting".

there are to few trains

should be: "there are too few trains".

but that's something

but it's something

Also...

"I like trains..."

Oh...oh my...umm... Closed please...
*clicks again*
Ohmygod it expanded.
Close.

Baby steps... :twilightsmile: Though, on the other hand, she's a bat pony, I guess stallions queue to ask her out...
4411844
Thanks :twilightsmile:

It was featured yesterday, but only with mature content off. And it's still in the popular box.
4412830
Thanks :twilightsmile: It's fixed now.
Btw, I'm currently reading Monstrous Regiment, and generally, I'm a fan of Terry Pratchett.

4414370
Yeah, I see it there all the time...
You're so good it has to be featured soon. :rainbowkiss:

How can you all possibly think of them as adorable?! Do you not understand the threat they pose?!
They are the terror in the night...
None can escape them...
Nothing is safe...
Not even...

Really, I despise the idea that batponies drink blood.

It smacks of cruel Blood Libel.

I like how he's just all, "You know you like what you see."

"I'm sexy and I know it" :rainbowlaugh:

It seems that it's her special talent... :twilightsmile: Though removing the hoof marks from the hood may be a problem.
Also, while watching the gif I was listening to that song:

The effect is quite funny...

4418955 Ok, that fits in adorably too well. :rainbowkiss:
Anything is better if you have the right background music. :rainbowlaugh:

That's Adorable!

Well, it seems bat ponies like socks... Good for them!

Good job, made me chuckle (not that it's a bad thing), needs a sequel though.

4411530 I agree with you I was thinking of something else as well...we're bad ponies...:twilightblush:

4421551
I guess if it wasn't my story I'd think the same... :ajsmug:

Oh! Now I understand the title! First World problem.

Not going to read this one, but the premise is that bat ponies are supposed to be scary. I can't think of any reason to think that they were scary before you brought the idea up, so I'm just going to say "Bat ponies, they're supposed to be scary, right?" and answer "No."

Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I liked the take on the Lunar Pegasi aka Bat Ponies aka Thestrals. Nice addition. I look to see more written, and possibly this mare (I'm assuming) and her world.

The image for this story ruins the joke. I suggest changing it to a bat pony without socks.

4425291 I don't think so. I think the fact that it was there only made the end more surprising.

I actually wanted to find another picture of this character, but there are exactly three of them, and one of them is a gif.
