I'm older than your average brony, but then I've always enjoyed cartoons. I'm an experienced reviewer, EqD pre-reader, and occasional author.


Pinkie asks Spike to keep Maud company until she gets off work, but he can't just sit there and say nothing to Maud, right? But she barely talks back, so he continues filling the silence, and... well, he should have stayed quiet.

Poor Spikey:pinkiehappy:
He's so precious :duck:
I'm so bad.....:twilightsmile:
No I'm not waddling away in anger:moustache: I'm just walking away
:raritywink: Look at those chubby wubby cheeks woo woo wooo
:moustache: not again

I loved this in the write off and I love it still. Thank you for posting it :pinkiehappy:

Oh poor, poor Spike! :D

:pinkiegasp: What did you do???
This was a really fun read! Trying to understand Maud's expression is an art in of itself.

I like this - pairing a gem-eater with a rock-eater to partake in some repartee is an inspired idea!

I mADe the pUN BeFORE YOU Did HAH, hAH.

Sorry, I'm in a trolling move today

So Spike inadvertently flirting on Maud?

This is very well done I like it.

Good God! That poor little dragon!

Poor Spike. But at least he wasn't being treated like a bad guy.

Funny little story. Have a like.

7090012 Shame they never got out on the ice together.

7091521 Indeed, they are the show's two best ice skaters (that we are aware of).


That was a good deal of fun. Poor Spike though, he just can't win. Neither can Twilight, apparently.

I enjoyed the opening very much but half-way through inner-dialogue seemed to get inter-mixed with outer-dialogue. In all honesty, I could see this as a part of a real episode. It was cute and fluffy but still unexpected and fun just like the show we've come to love. Pinkie's dialogue was spot on. Maud even more so. I tend to dislike Spike-fics but you really captured him well here. Too often they resort to butt-monkey or self-insert so this was refreshing. I don't know why this didn't place better. Bravismo. Have an upvote.

Spike grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her, but she only watched him as if he were a documentary on toothpaste.

Love these descriptions. Maud is very... expressive... isn't she *blinks*

I believe I have found myself be terrified of Maud.

Man I can just hear Pinkies voice in my head
"What did you do!?!"


Cute and it made me laugh. Have an upvote and a fav.

~Have a good one.


... ... ... ... ..... .. .

Maud has got to be the most needy, unpredictable, high-maintenace, random pony in all of Equestria, and compared to Rarity and Pinkie Pie, that's saying something.

wow you've done something that's never happened to me before

I have a overpowering urge to smack pinkie pie so hard she does a back flip, I honestly like pinky pies character this is new for me.

I never expected those endings! :moustache::heart::facehoof::pinkiehappy:

The title of this fic gave me an idea for another one.


It's about Maud being a rookie fighter in an underground arena where she has to make it to the top.

7095506 As long as there's a training montage.

*remembers the first episode to feature Maude* That might work better if she wasn't already One Punch Pony.

7095774 Oh! Oh! Oh! Not a present day Maud, then! How about pre-Nightmare Moon Maud? Maybe even Teenage Maud!

7095211 Why? She was just playing messenger for Maud. If anything, Maud could use a bit of roughing up for being so high-maintenance.

Mica, huh? You sure he’ll make a good friend? I hear he’s kind of flaky.

Dammit, Writer! I choked on my tea, goddammit. Fucking puns. That was a gneiss one, though. Just be sure not to take them for granite.

Poor Twilight.

:twilightoops: What did I do!?

Still, Friendzoned by Maud while trying not to be by Pinkie and then follow up Friendzoned by Rarity.
:facehoof: give the dude a break.

I remember this one fondly. Good to see it here, especially with expansions based on new canon. Thank you for it.

An excerpt from the new show "Everypony Hates Spike".


Stonecold Spike. ...yeah, I have no comment. This is a great story, but I can't find a single darn word to describe it!

Okay this was actually really funny. I could totes see a sequel with Twilight becoming the new Spike for the next episode!

*blinks four times and walks out the door*

I feel like I'm missing a joke of some sort. Maud-lin? Where does the title come from?

That notwithstanding, this was a great fic. Gave me a nice good chuckle throughout. Spike and Maud need more play together, I think.

7100991 I believe its a pun off meddlin'. Like meddling in another affairs.

7101263 Oh, I suppose that makes sense.


self-pityingly or tearfully sentimental, often through drunkenness.
"the drink made her maudlin"

that's what the title is referencing

7101504 Learning from fanfictions. Who'dve thunk?

7101268 No, it's a pun off of Maudlin - as in depressing and melodramatic.


Congratulations spike. Now you know what every day is like with Aspergers.

The, Pie sister's, just love messing with ponies!:rainbowlaugh:

Aww, this was cute. Poor Spike is so confused.

Story title: Maud-lin

Author name: Pascoite

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )

7102700 What can I say? I have an affinity for her. My avatar is an actual mineral sample of pascoite in my rock cabinet. I have a blind bag Maud who gets to stay in there sometimes.

That's when you know you're a Brony.:derpytongue2:

Sweet story, could almost be a episode or short. Everyone played off each other.

Very funny story! :rainbowlaugh:

I really liked how you wrote that Maud thought Spike had a crush on her, and I liked the way you wrote the ending.

Have a like! :twilightsmile:

This whole story was excellent. I had so much to say but I forgot it all. Oh well I really enjoyed this one and all that good stuff.
