Thumbs up, here you go.

From one Apple Family/robot mashup writer to another, this is good stuff.

The formating was a little wierd and difficult to read, but I'm following this.

It's good but get rid of the double spaces.

Just wanted to say:
I could regale you as to why it looks like it does, but that would bore you. Just know I screwed up, shrugged, and hit submit. Next time, it will not be this way. If it isn't so, let terrible nonspecific events befall me in some manner and at some time.

Welllll.... alright. Video games are canon, so I guess robots can be too. Just make sure it stays interestin'. :ajbemused:

It's been so long since I've heard some good chemistry humor.

That was a masterful ponification of Village People lyrics.

One question, what does YMCA mean in Equestria?


Young Mare and Colt Association

There are denominational recreational facilities in Equestria, such as the NSDPWYCPPMIYW (Non-Specific Deity's Place Where You Can Push or Pull Metal If You Want) but the Village Ponies found it incredibly hard to write a song about it.

Just for that, I wish I could give you a second thumbs up.


Tell your friends all about me, then they can give me their thumbs. :ajsmug:

I'm really liking this story!

Did you confuse rarity with mrs. Cake? Other than that, awesome.

"What's the worst that could happen?"
And everything went to shit...

Because Hexagons, haha, that's cute.

There's quite a bit of repetative dialgoue, but other than that this is very interesting! Being that stallions are such a rare commodity, I think it'd be cute to ship one of our dear mares with him, at least a little bit. Maybe Fluttershy wouldn't be so shy around a robot, haha. XD

Good! We've established he is NOT a toaster! :rainbowlaugh::heart:

And thus marks my failure to update consecutive days. Well, it's been a good run but I'm closing the doors on this one.

I'm just joshin' you! :rainbowwild:

Chapter 5 when I'm not so lucid. :rainbowderp:

I'm afraid I do not understand the ending.


I'm unsure what you're confused about exactly, but if I had to guess what it is this would be my advice: recall the events of the previous night.

I like the cocoon analogy. It gives us a very interesting endgame to look forward to, as well as good thoughts for what he might look like when he finally emerges as a bio-pony. :)

529630 I'm confused about where Rainbow says, "is it supposed to be BE AU or BA EU?". Like, what exactly does she mean...?



If you're a top down reader, you see BA EU, but across it's BE AU. She's just pointing out how it looks like nonesense. :rainbowhuh:

this is making little to no sense to me. then again, it's 3 a.m.

Heya, I'm sending some people your way with a blog post of mine. Hope you get a lot more readers. This story is very interesting, and I can't wait to read more. :pinkiehappy::heart:

Um, did you do something wrong with the italics?:applejackunsure:

Another chapter come and gone, hopefully one step closer to becoming a real stallion! With such a big plot device dangling in front of us, make sure you mention it now and then so we remember what we're looking forward to! :pinkiehappy::heart:

heehee. Love it. 'Have to thank Cleff here for reccomendeding it!

I :rainbowlaugh:ed so hard when Twilight thought Rainbow was the mother.

Excellent start, glad I got around to reading this.

Ahh, misunderstandings... :twilightoops:

I see what you did there:rainbowkiss::pinkiecrazy:

Okay, I'm with you so far, and I'm totally trusting you that all of these stories are going to come together somehow. . . don't let me down!

I love how you write AJ, by the way.


You trust me all these stories are gonna come together? Well, that makes one of us! :pinkiecrazy:

Seriously though, I know exactly where I'm going. Just sit back and allow me the pleasure of entertaining you further.

Truly excellent so far, I can't wait to see where you are going with this.

Is twilight still confused about who the father of the kid is or did i miss something?btw great chapter:pinkiecrazy:

State Alchemist, hah!

Oh Rarity, you and your generosity.

I will now proceed to beat your ass for the Full Metal Alchemist rip-off there at the end. You've got the talent and the creativity to carry your story alone, don't sink into a reference fair! :flutterrage:


It's funny you should mention that. I had been planning on doing a parody/reference dream for a while now. I've got like ten more of these in note form on a word document. The original plan was for Applejack and the others to ALL have dreams like that, but I decided that would just be just useless filler and not cute novelty.

Anyway, I feel no shame for that scene. Not my usual cup of tea, but that was also kind of the point.

If you don't like it, well, Hexagons.

Oh, but thank you very much for criticism. I will keep it in mind.

i'm wondering.... when will Gibson communicate in a Legendary rock song? or mabye th' Foo Fighters? a lot of their recent songs would actually be good for ponies, provided th' right one went with th' right song. heck, "Walk" would be good for Lugnut. (ignore this if you want, i'm just a HUGE FF fan.)

CMC with a robot?
I like where this is going.

So Awesome. Another great chapter and I can't wait to see what happens next.:pinkiehappy:

good chapter bro. :moustache:

Good job, Fluttershy indeed. Dash vs. the juice box was hilarious. :rainbowdetermined2:

I freakin love this chapter!!! BUT I WANT TO KNOW WHY BIG MAC WAS CRYING?!:pinkiecrazy:

"Well... hurry up and stop bein' a robot..." she mumbled, obviously starting to drift off. Big Lugnut brought Applejack to her room and laid her on the bed. She took off her stetson and put it on her nightstand.

"I'm going as fast as I can," he chuckled, pulling her sheets over her.

"Uhn... go faster..." she mumbled, getting comfortable in her sheets, "I love you too much already..."

Oh Shi- :pinkiegasp:

Well, AJ's plan seems to have worked. :ajsmug:

And Triplets, that was a bit of a surprise. Did Dash know in advance about them though? She says kids before the doctor points them out on the ultrasound.
