The changeling hive of Twilight and Rainbow have settled in the Everfree Forest and they have had many adventures. But what happens at home? What's it like to live in Phoenix Roost? What's it like to be a Thestral from the long dead Moonlit Empire living in the modern day? A Tea'la from the nightmarish Chaos Lands? A pony among a sea of purple and blue shape shifters? Or even a Sphinx from distant lands with strange customs? Let's find out.

Side story to the Hive series by Law Abiding Pony. If you're not familiar with it how'd you find this? Go check it out, it's pretty good if I do say so myself. Course I do edit for it... Also very little would make sense if you jump in with just this story.

Huh. You know, this was actually an interesting idea. Lots of writers kind of forget Tank exists…this was quite good, and I thought how he interacted with all those kids was adorable. Well done.

A very sweet start. I look forward to more.

Of course, considering how many of the changelings end up existing by the time of reformation of the hives I gotta wonder how many batches there are... With only Twilight and Rainbow laying, they get up to over 70,000 don't they? And over a 12 year period too.

I thought the hive was named Phoenix's Roost?

When in the Hive Series does this take place?

5931549 After Culling, but before Reformation. I haven't set a firm location just yet, but that's what I'm planning to set in the second chapter.

Sweet. I hope we get to see a bit more Flitter. She's an adorable TortoiseLing. Kinda feels like Fluttershy.

5928096 I think it's just plain easier to say Phoenix Roost then Phoenix's Roost so i think LAW has unofficially changed it.

Hey nice job, sure it fits in the Hive verse and the quality is up to the standard :)

5932050 5928096


The official name is always going to be Phoenix's Roost. But I usually change it slightly depending on the sound of the sentence. Like if it's possessive, I switch it to Phoenix Roost's instead of Phoenix's Roost's. Or if the sound of the sentence makes it weird that I just drop the possessive entirely.

That was fun. I also really like the idea that Dash is into threesomes with her consorts, it just makes so much sense with her personality

One funny thing is I was briefly confused because I was like, that's not the right author for the hive stories, is it? Then I read the description any everything made sense. Except I already followed you so I could have actually run across this without reading the hive series at all, I just didn't.

maybe a day in the life of Owlowiscious next? I have wondered what that owl has been up to in this story

5936778 yes! All the pets!

That was nice and sweet. Definitely a bit more slice of lifey than the main series stories, but that is not a bad thing.

That was fun, may I have another? Looking forward to more.
Keep up the good work. Deus tecum.

...So, the pony (or changeling, rather) that Rainbow Dash likes to bed with is ... Rainbow Dash. And Rainbow Dash.

...Why am I not surprised? :rainbowlaugh:

Finally got around to reading this, and I must say I'm not disappointed. Such a sweet, touching chapter. I hope to see more.

Why didn't I read this sooner? Its awesome!

dawn, that was sweet!

boom!!

dies from dawwww explosion.....

This was nice and sweet. It was up to par with the actual Hive series. So, good job.

Must need moar!!!

Really impressed with how this is going so far. It melds perfectly into the style of the hive series. But seriously, *dies from d'waaaa overload*

Maybe the next chapter could have Spike visiting the hive?:twilightsmile:

awwww how cute!!!!:pinkiesad2::scootangel::twilightsmile::rainbowkiss::yay:

Is this on Hiatus?

6399171 In my head no, in reality... Practically. I am sadly unfocused and got somewhat discouraged when LAP and Bitter pill disagreed with my interpretation of an established character. But it's been awhile, I think I'm refreshed and I have at least half a chapter ready. I'll get back to it soon, just let me catch up on some of my editing responsibilities and I should crank the next chapter soon:pinkiehappy:... Hopefully.:twilightblush:

Awww, cute! :twilightsmile:

I'm hoping we'll get to see Scootaloo in this story. :pinkiehappy:

Seriously, she hasn't shown up since book 1. :rainbowderp:

Not only is she's Dash's biggest fan - in this continuity, her adoptive mother is also a changeling. :raritywink:

This is just begging to be a chapter here. :rainbowdetermined2:

6434514 This should be a thing, I think I recall that they had to talk her out of rebirth, maybe a chapter on that?
6399448 How hard can writing a new chapter for this be when the readers are the ones coming up with the ideas for the chapters? Crank out another one please.

6674469 A lot harder than you'd think :/ I can come up with a dozen story or chapter ideas in an hour, but to sit down and write more than a thousand words can take up half a day or more. Because not only do you have to take that idea and expand it into A whole series of scenes and character interactions but then there's the "editing process" that people seem to forget about, where you go over everything with a fine toothed comb, often more than once To make sure it all makes sense and works and is spelled correctly.

A lot of writers don't have that kind of time on a regular basis, and I know from personal experience, that many prefer to sit down and get a whole idea/chapter finished in one go rather than bits at a time or they lose track of things and it winds up a jumbled mess.

On top of that, more often than not it's HARDER to write ideas that someone else is coming up with, Because your own ideas are often already fleshed out in your head and it's just a matter of putting them on paper, when someone else comes up with the idea you start with a blank slate and have to figure out how to make it work first.

So my question to you is, did you intend to come off as so pretentious and smug with that comment, or was it unintentional? Because if it was the latter I sincerely apologise for going off like this, I just tend to get a little worked up when I see people telling content creators how easy what they do is. Most of my good friends are writers and artists and I see A lot what that kind of talk can do to their self-esteem and desire to keep doing what they do.

6850697 Sorry, that was mainly my want for another chapter coming out.

6851332 its cool. Like I said its just something I get too worked up about. No harm meant no harm done. That said I DO wish he'd update. Everything to do with this AU is awesome.

‘The littlest, evilest, crankiest bunny’

Let me guess... Owlicious is the author? Tank is too nice to write it, Opal is just as mean, Winona is a dog, and Fluttershy would never say anything bad about her little Devil Bastard Angel Bunny.

...oh, and Gummy is too busy writing another book on philosophy. :pinkiehappy:

A: This was hilarious
B: Finally, another one
C: Can't wait for the main story to continue so you can get more material.

:pinkiehappy: I have this on my list of one shots and I'm glad to see it grow:twilightsmile:

I HATE THAT COMIC SO MUCH. NEVER MENTION IT AGAIN.

6979378 Hehehe... AHAHAHAHA:rainbowlaugh:!!!!... Don't worry, it didn't happen.:twilightsmile:

....yup. "Welcome to the Magical Land of Equestria" just about sums it up. It's a blast here. :raritywink:

I’m not sure you realize it though, just how much you’ve… Inspired them.

needs end " marks.
_____________________

Order of the Shell is adorable. I wonder if they keep the tradition alive with new little fillies when they get ready to metamorphosis into adults.

Still all in all a good chapter. I look forward to seeing a 3rd Chapter someday ^_^. Hopefully soon ^_^.

Heh, adorable story.

Still hilarious.
Can't wait till the sphinxes learn just how bucked they are if they challenge Equestria and it's blatant abuse of the natural order.:rainbowlaugh:

Order of the Shell huh? We they going to undertake ninja training when they grow up? :rainbowwild:

“If you were listening to my story you’d know that! Uggghhhh! And then they went and fought the battle of Rookhaven and rescued the tree and bat ponies and then they met the rude interrupting gryphon people with the weird faces! The end!”

BWA-HAA-HAA-HAAA!!! :rainbowlaugh:

Too...much...laughter.

Cute, funny... What more could you ask for. More of the same?
Keep up the good work. Deus tecum.

“Momma, do you think she’d hiss if we poked her?”

Oh, my god :rainbowlaugh:! Can I have that one :rainbowkiss:

It twitched! Yay for updates!
Yeah, having base knowledge thrown at your face like that is not pleasant. I think it went well!
Keep going! ;)

“But then Granny came up with a plan. She had the technology! She could rebirth her!"

We can rebuild him. We have the technology.

so I did bookshelf with all the stories where the queen is the mother of the hive and I wondered if I missed any or if I have all. what do you think? http://www.fimfiction.net/bookshelf/851658/queen-mother-of-the-hives

7426962 Nothing to add off the top of my head though I feel there may be a few more. Good luck compiling all that!
