Big Mac is Watching


"Monsters aren't born, they're made..."
- C.J. Roberts.

After being defeated by Cadence and Shining Armor, Chrysalis was stripped of her newfound strength and completely starved of food. She awakens in a strange room bound to a bed by several casts and bandages. A young colt found her near his home and tends to her while she recovers, each day bringing them closer and closer.

Can the Queen of Changelings even have true feelings of love, or is she just kidding herself?

Please leave any feedback you guys can. Thanks! :derpytongue2:

Haven't even read it yet and i already found a typo
A young colt fond her near his home. should be "found"

This is cool, and really sad.


Opening typo fixed...

interesting, but one question, why would anybody let a changeling into a school? based off the way celestia reacts after chrysalis reveals herself suggests changeling have been a problem before. Maybe i'm wrong though.


Finding out all of these things is what makes reading the story fun! :raritywink:


Yea, I have a tendency to write really depressing things. Especially when it comes to getting bullied. I write those parts based off of personal experiences :pinkiesad2:...

But life is good now! :pinkiehappy:

537570 Yes bromigo, life is good now.

An interesting take on what happened after the wedding :ajsmug:
And what a traumatizing past we just witnessed :fluttercry:

*Click click
Thumbs up

Show me what'cha got

Another one, very great, another reedemer for Chrysalis. Good job with it :twilightsmile:

Thank ya kindly :ajsmug:

"MOAR!!!!! :pinkiehappy:" will come soon, but I prefer quality and quantity over time. Just remember that.

I know, but the picture I tried to post didn't render, so it just seemed like I didn't know what I was talking about... Which happens a lot. :derpytongue2:

537686 Your welcome :twilightsmile:
Most of what I see for fics of Chrysalis is either clop or hearing her rage about her defeat but this... this makes her look back, and from what you wrote, really far back.
A fine orchestration to see her inner turmoil :ajsmug:
I can expect to see more of her past yes? :pinkiesmile:


For the love of Germany -_-


Indubitably... I actually plan to explain how she came to become Queen and how the changelings are made as well as the mysterious colt's past. Also, If anyone wants to try and name him, I haven't come up with one yet!


Hey! I used to live in Germany! That's where I got a lot of experience for writing Chrysalis's dream sequence...
Place had good schnitzel, though...


interesting. Here is an interesting song

When Celestia says,
"We is de master race!"
Right in Celestia's face!
Not to love Celestia is a great disgrace,
So we HEIL!
Right in Celestia's face!

When Miss Luna says,
"We own the moon and space!"
Right in Miss Luna's face
When Miss Twilight says,
"They'll never love dis place!"
Right in Miss Twilight's face

Are we not the super mares?
Lovable n' pure supermares!
Ja we are the supermares!
Super-duper super mares!
Is this Equestrian land so good?
Would you leave it if you could?
Ja this Equestrian land is good!
We would leave it if we could!

We bring the world to order!
Heil Her own world to order!
Everymare of foreign race,
Will love Celestia's face,
When we bring to the world her order!

When Celestia says,
"We is de master race!"
Right in Celestia's face!
Not to love Celestia is a great disgrace,
So we HEIL!
Right in Celestia's face!

So we HEIL!
Right in Celestia's face!

537753 Well a name is hard to give when we know so little of him, we know he lives out in the desert, a pegasus, knows a thing or two on medical treatment and potions......

This is a tough one :derpytongue2:

...We must have a chapter 2. wow now I know how it feels to be one of my readers XD crazy...it does suck waiting on the next chapter:pinkiegasp:

Well, Transcendence has ended, and I DID need a new story to fill the gaping Chrysalis void in my life.

There is just one issue. I note with some curious dismay you have gone with the "children are, in reality, hell-spawned demon imps who will brutally murder their fellows and adults are powerless to stop them" trope. Even back in the '10s and '20s, when you could have photographs of grinning youngsters at a lynching, you didn't have mass gangs of both-sex thugs viciously beating their peers into the hospital. Even in the service of preservation of homogeneity they would have at least tried mockery and spite for longer than one encounter.

But that is the only issue. All the rest is good.

538040 As drastic a thing that is, it happens, much to frequently. During my elementary school days I've seen a kid pick another kid up and snap their leg against the corner of a building like you might a stick over your knee, and the attackers "punishment" was suspension for a week which is nothing more then a vacation to kids in reality. It happens...and sometimes in groups which is usually much worse of an outcome.

Can't wait to see more and I also have a question. Does Chrystalis look how she normally does, or what I would assume is normal. Or is she different due to her powers being drained. You never said either way so I'm assuming normal.

the pic kinda makes me wanna hug chrysalis...:applecry:

I hope you have a unique perspective in which to take this, because Transcend, as well as a couple other stories, have used the whole 'Injured Chrys' thing, so I'm hoping to see something new! (Sorry if that sounds insulting.)

538110 I think she still looks normal, if the pic was visited as a flasback then we can assume that was her original form in this fic.

538122 Here ya go :pinkiehappy:

this looks promising, looking forward to the next chapter, which i hope you update soon! :twilightsmile:

Yes, been waiting for some more storys like this. Chrysalis was only trying to feed her people so why is she the bad guy in FIM?

If she had stuck to only trying to feed her people, she wouldn't be. Heck, I'm reasonably sure that if she'd simply gone and asked Celestia for help, the latter would have been perfectly happy to assist so long as said assistance didn't in turn endanger her subjects.

But nooo, she had to go and do the whole cackling groom-stealing succubus going "today Canterlot, tomorrow THE WOOORLD!!!" routine on top of providing for her swarm...

I demand more. Failure to comply will get you a big heap of Love and Tolerance!


And maybe not, I don't think they would take kindly to another being that acts as a parasite. Who's to say she didn't already try that?

Damn these adorable Chrysalis pics...they drive me to sad.:fluttercry: I must flee! FLAME-THROWER TANK, AWAAAAAAAY!

Edit: After reading through this, The Psychopat has grown a disdain for Chrysalis' attackers., as have I. He tells me that he will track them down and use his..."special" pranks to teach them a lesson.

BTW, this a very good story. I DEMAND MORE! FEED ME! Ah'm bigger den yu. Ah'm higher on da fuud chain. GET IN MAH BELLEH!

Well, it really comes down to how redeemable one wants the changelings to be. If there's honestly no way they physically could peacefully coexist with ponydom, well, then that's not going to happen how much either or both sides may wish otherwise. Conversely, if the only thing preventing the changelings from pursuing a more properly symbiotic relationship with the ponies is simply a matter of attitude -- again, on either side or on both --, then that excuse goes away and the whole issue becomes simply one of diplomacy and public relations.

At both of which, mind you, Chrysalis seems to kind of suck. Or maybe it's just that she considers that approach beneath her. We can be pretty sure that she didn't even try, at least not in Equestria, because if she had her eventual attack would have come as less of a surprise than it quite obviously did.

Fudge monkey, this is awesome. I am following, or tracking, or whatever it is. This is amazing.:pinkiehappy:

Thank all of you for the compliments and comments. While I cannot answer all of your questions right now, I am going to promise you that all will be worked out soon. Hopefully the next chapter will be done in the next few days, but I can't promise anything quite yet. Senior Exit Project is being quite the female diamond dog.

Glad to see you getting the recognition you deserve for one of your stories, also glad to see that I'm not one of the only people to read it and comment on it, which is a little discouraging to know that I now have competition on first comment... Oh well, I will just have to pay more attention to my inbox.

U could name him desert dune. Tumble weed. Sandy mirage. Dry oasis. Camal toe xD jk. Sand storm. Maybe these will help if u havent come up with the name yet that is.

I love it! Can't wait to see more... ;)

I'm liking it so far! Please, continue.....


Well, you won't be waiting for long. :pinkiehappy:
