Erised the ink-moth

This story is a sequel to Ponies are squishy


Catching a cold is nothing new to ponies. It's been a fact since as far back as anyone, even the Princesses can remember, that ponies get sick from time to time.

Thankfully, medical technology and research have made leaps and bounds. Gone are the days when leeches and garlic were used to treat symptoms. Now ponies have state of the art science and medicinal magic at their disposal.

And yet... the secrets of one esoteric, age old treatment continue to evade even the most practiced medical professionals:

How does a "Get well soon" card help a patient more than prescription-grade anti-depressants?! HOW?!

OK, somepony give me a placebo because i'm dying of laughter at that last line. :pinkiehappy:

Who is "Dane's "Queen" supposed to be?

Fun with a surprising emotional side and occasional humor.

I like it.

Not quite up there with the original, but still good.

Dune turned and pulled her off to the side where no one would hear. "No. I'm saying it doesn't matter if you do or not. We're changelings. We can receive love from others, but it's impossible for us to give it back in anything but hollow sentiment. I don't like it either, but it's our curse. The best we can do for anypony is make them believe that we care, and hope they find some comfort in our lies."

Now that, that is just tragic.

I came here for humour and I get real feels out of it.

I demand a refund of my no-money!

I get the feeling that going to this restaurant is not going to end up cheep or as healthy.

That was really sad... But a bit uplifting, too.

By the way, seeing as the film citadel story is on hiatus, what's Chryssie's status in this verse?

7352218 Honestly... I still no idea how I'm going to end that fic. I kinda just wanted twitchy guard and flirty changeling to meet up again.
Planned to keep Chryssy alive though, 'cause nothing kills off best villain.

7353093 Good enough for me, I always try to avoid fics where she dies. Maybe she's stuck having to listen to Twilight's friendship lectures as an attempt at reformation.

Yuck, way too much grease. I'm with the 'ling, that shit'll kill ya.

Coffe never learns huh? Kinda like our 8 kilogram cat, always attacking our neighbors one fluffing ton cart horses no matter how often he is send flying.

oh, i just love that "foal size" drink gag! :pinkiehappy:

"Fried cheese?"

"Yes, sir."

"And what is it fried in, more cheese?"

"Of course, sir."

"Oh. I'll take two."

I’m reminded of the Hot Pocket set from Jim Gaffigan.

"I say 'Knock-Knock', and you say?"
"Who's there?" Whispered Pinkie pie, her bright red nose poking out from under the covers, followed by a tired smile and two sparkling eyes.
"A friend," said Twilight
"I feel better already," whispered Pinkie.

Intro made me think of this little bit :twilightsmile:

If she had known it would lead to this, she'd have slapped the food out of his hooves and dragged him somewhere else.

Would she have eaten his head off first? :trollestia:
