'I am made from the dust of the stars, and the oceans flow in my veins: here I hide in the heart of the city, like a stranger coming out of the rain.'


Twilight Sparkle tries to convince one of her lodgers to do something he'd rather not.

Started life as a scene for something completely different, took up residence in my brain a few days ago, and just wouldn't go away till I finished writing it down.

Now with a reading by my favourite site-wide maniac, PresentPerfect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7Jf9frXCkw

Pre-read through the efforts of my dear friend WolfieSama01, who wishes it to be known that she tried to dissuade me.

Oh.... Is that what they were talking about? :facehoof:

you make the hole thing sound so wrong and in the end its over food oh god this was funny.:rainbowlaugh:


You get one of those ideas, and it just won't go away . . . :pinkiecrazy:

What species is the person on the bookshelf?


Well, that's the question, now isn't it? :derpyderp2:

Twilight: "Get down here and eat this!"
OC: "Neveeeer!"
Twilight: "I promise it will taste good!"
OC: "Liaaaar!"



I should probably comment on the fact you think the male lead's Original the Character, but that'd just be giving too much away. :raritywink:

'Dissuade'? Now, now, I may have arched an eyebrow incredulously, but...dissuade? I would never! :raritywink:


Now all it needs is a dramatic reading.

The innuendo was so blatant that I was expecting a twist but not the exact nature. Great fun anyway, well done.


Yeah, it was a compliment. You can tell from the "great fun" bit.


This was hilarious. And the twist at the end was even better. And Spikes addition in the end awesome.

5273134 Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile:

Hmm . . . now this story is intriguing. Overall, I have to say that it was actually very well-written, with the dialogue flowing very well and staying in character for Twilight. As for our little unnamed, no face, no voice, and just generally unknown friend, his dialogue lines are truly magnificent. Combined with your local culture dialect and just general words (because no one in the States calls someone a twit . . . except for me because why not?), he was such a fulfilling and wonderful character.

Now I only want to know what creature this is. If not a human, then . . . man, I have not a clue. You've done a great job there indeed.

I truly hope you write more! Seriously! You did a great job here for a comedy, and I almost wonder what else you could do.


Thanks so much! This is all very high praise coming from someone who's been here as long and seen as many stories go by as you have. :twilightsmile: Still, though, if you don't mind my asking, how did you happen to come by this? I'm always amazed how many people seem to find my little corner of the Internet, here and on Youtube.

Still not giving anything away about He Atop the Bookshelf, but suffice to say there are a great many canons floating about the Internet.

As to your last point -- well, stick around for a few weeks and let me surprise you. :pinkiehappy:

This was quite the enjoyable read! I love it when the 'alien' is not a human. Ever read Mare Doloris?

The fakeout I kinda saw coming, but that's expected. The trick is to leave the readers wondering and you did well.

Well, I don't know what the A/N is suggesting I do, and I don't know who the person on the bookshelf is, so I'm headcanoning it as Sonic the Hedgehog and there's nothing you can do to stop me. :V

Err, the reading, that is. Less so the cutting.

Well as long as she doesn't feed him after midnight...

I'm now imagining a talking cat hunched there.
