I write bat-pone and moth-pone. I'm an expert on both.

Trigger Warning: The word "Anonymous"

Some three centuries after Twilight Sparkle's coronation, something stranger than anything in Equestria's history appears in the very heart of Equestria itself. A human, lost, confused, and alone, finds himself warily welcomed by the rulers of this strange land.
After trading information about himself for information about the world he'll soon call home, he leaves from Canterlot to the quaint and quiet town of Ponyville, where he eventually meets a lonely bat-pony by the name of Speck.

"Could you two stop calling me an it? I'm a guy. I've got extra parts and all that." They hush their whispering and walk back in front of you. Luna pulls off muh pants and BOW CHICKA BOW-WOW!~

This was my favorite part. So unexpected. The sex scene after it was great.

"Do you think he's related to that... thing?"

A world of colorful, magic, talking horses.

This phrase doesn't read clearly because magic is both a noun and an adjective. Readers may parse it as "A world of adjective, noun, gerund-adj. plural noun" which will trip them. You want "colorful, magical talking horses" or at least to remove the second comma you use here. There are other ways to clear that up but either of those are what I'd suggest.

and horses probably don't have a monetary system

They can talk and build castles. Assuming that they don't have a currency is a stretch.
Suggest "may not even have a monetary" or just striking this or saying that they use a fiat currency back home (as opposed to gold coins or whatever) so the contents would be worthless. You already do some work to establish this in terms of ID in the present text.

A pony wearing a chef's hat enters the room from a small door just behind the white horse. He sets a tray holding several tea cups and a teapot on the table, bows, and exits back through the door. They pour themselves some tea and start to sip at it.

You make the jump to knowing he's a "pony" really swiftly. I guess you can gloss over it but I'd expect he'd need to be corrected first early-on about terms.

"What will I do here, in your world?" I'll need some way to survive the rest of my life in this world. It should be much easier than on Earth, but I'll need assistance in adjusting.

Another biggish leap that the world he's in is actually nice and pleasant. You description implies he was unconscious while he was outside so he should have no idea. For all he knows beyond the castle it could be a hellscape. Also didn't they just say he had to stay at the castle and never leave?

>You make the jump to knowing he's a "pony" really swiftly. I guess you can gloss over it but I'd expect he'd need to be corrected first early-on about terms.
Pony being a small horse.
Changed to small horse.

>Another biggish leap that the world he's in is actually nice and pleasant.
Anywhere that isn't earth is already a step up in the "nice and pleasant" category.

>You description implies he was unconscious while he was outside so he should have no idea. For all he knows beyond the castle it could be a hellscape.
You only live once.

>Also didn't they just say he had to stay at the castle and never leave?

i'm keeping an eye on you <3

4521329 ... well played sir. Favorited.

"You do have a name, don't you?" I momentarily lock eyes with Luna and shrug.
"It's Anonymous." It isn't exactly a lie.

I generally don't like fics that use 'Anonymous' as a character name, but this one actually is decent...

So. The mane 6 (aside from sparkebutt) are dead.

Finally, a story that isn't focused on the mane 6 and the human both.

>Sees fic in feature box
>Sees it has Bat Pony cover
>Sees that it has a main character that IS Bat Pony.
>Instant fave and like.

To mimic the cover art.

'Eeeeee!'

He isn't the normal kind of Anonymous with green skin and all that. He just can't remember his name.

4521505
>being this happy over Sock'em Ponkers and Treekiller being dead

4521531 I know he isn't the normal kind of anonymous, which is good, as it actually allows character development, although you should have him remember his real name at some point.

OH MY FUCKING GOD THAT IS ADORABLE. :heart:

4521568 You should have heard Mr101's reaction on skype, also Oh My God that is freaking adorable!!!

4521562
Possibly. It won't be for a good few chapters, though.

4521583
She shows up later.

4521592

I like.. Very interesting.. Will be firmly planting one of my eyeballs into this story.

4521612 He literally squee'd and freaked out for a moment.

You'll be blinded by tears.

That's alarming.

Can't help it, Bat ponies are best kind of pony. :twilightsmile:

Loved the original A feeling of xxx and I'm rather curious about the added content. Can't comment on this one yet but the entire pastebin series is absolutely fantastic.

Why

Some three centuries after Twilight Sparkle's coronation, something stranger than anything in Equestria's history appears in the very heart of Equestria itself. A human, lost, confused, and alone, finds himself warily welcomed by the rulers themselves.

Yes

Seems legit. wanna do cocaine together

4522248
Not yet, I have to write fanfiction about a show for little girls.

4522266

Wanna do some little girls together

4522228 You should rename yourself Nagasaki Fun Time. :trollestia:

4521531 I'm not happy, but there are so many stories about "human meets mane 6" and/or "human dates one of/the mane 6". It's nice for a change, is all.

4522331
It's awful, because it's about ponies.

4522405
But why

Nagasaki.

Do you even history?

solace in these books

in -> "amongst" or "with" b/c they're not literally inside of the individual books

"Aside from some things in lore and history, I believe so."

Would prefer "old" lore for flow.

However, over time, and with my sister's defeat by my hoof, the ponies began regarding us just as they did each other.

This might just be Celestia being Celestia, but you might have her clarify whether she prefers this to the way she was thought of before or not. It's very odd that she wouldn't even allude to some comment.

I had banished her to the moon for a thousand years, and on the thousand-year anniversary, she had escaped.

Suggest you drop the 2nd "had"

She had proven herself to be absolutely exceptional in her special talent.

Wordy even for Celestia. I'd do "...proved herself to be absolutely exceptional" or "had proven herself to be exceptional."

It's safe to assume that she was cursed

Overly precise. Assumption would be okay if he said "evil" or "sick" or even "afflicted."

They were excellent ponies

Overly objective. Surely Celetia has a less heartlessly lawyer-like term to use for them after all this time? I could understand if it were like the day after the last one of them died but c'mon it's been hundreds of years. She should be able to admit to herself and others now that she cared for them.

Forcing another to do something like that isn't quite right, but she had to if her land was to stay safe. If she really did make the offer to the other five, then she tried her best to make it right.

Good. This part's really strong.

There used to be a castle there, but Twilight grew to despise it. She removed it and replaced it with her old tree-library-house, expanded on that, and dedicated it to her friends after they departed.

mfw this actually makes crazy amounts of sense that she wouldn't like it anymore after her friends were gone

also they must've seen some pretty rotten stuff if they didn't want to live any longer, no?

"See? Completely safe." She turns back to the door as I enter the room. "Sleep well, Anonymous."

tfw no all-powerful alicorn princess to put me to bed when I'm scared

considering he used that horrid name because of amnesia rather than it actualy being his name. I shall persevere though my irritation and hope he chooses a proper name before he gets to ponyville

4522787
Fixed all of that.

also they must've seen some pretty rotten stuff if they didn't want to live any longer, no?

This comes into play soon. I actually have ideas for why each one of them turned the offer down.

4522806
>Picking a new name
>Before he gets to ponyville
Not happening for a long while, I'm afraid.
It'll happen about 10 chapters after he meets Speck

Thankfully it got featured or i would have probably never seen it! Can't wait to read this rewrite, first i'm gonna check my heart for "feels overload" dangers :derpytongue2:

4522814
>Learn Mane 6's reasons for not being David Tenant and therefore *wanting* to go
Super. This sounds like it has some real potential.
<3

4522912
>David Tennant
This is Anonymous's real name.
He is the Doctor and he just doesn't remember.
He came to Equestria through a trans-dimensional portal and lost the TARDIS on the way through.

Don't post spoilers please.
:^)

I don't think all of those exclamation points were needed.
I also don't think you got the joke.

I don't like it when authors name their characters "Anonymous".
If you don't want us to know the name of a character, it's far less jarring to simply never have the other characters refer to them by name.
