Like ponies, changelings can get pretty paranoid at times. After all, it's not every day that a changeling gets kicked out of the hive for being a pony.

“I mean, would it matter if I was a pony?”


Very funny story, Raugos. You write Changelings so well. Please keep on keeping on.

Dear Queen Chrysalis,
Currently, we have nine hundred and forty-seven former members of your hive living as citizens in Equestria after being kicked out of your home under the accusation of being one of my ponies. Not that I mind the additional citizens or the tax revenue they generate (as they are all quite energetic workers), but a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation shows that if this trend continues, your entire hive will consist of you and a guard named 'That Idiot Scrape' within a few years.

Just passing on a little FYI between royalty.

Princess Celestia, of Equestria (Population 18,579,456 and growing)

(I wonder if we should add this to the "Would it matter?" group?)

Nice one! Good for a quick laugh.

At a convention? I think nopony would give a second glance.

7511109 That could be an interesting story, especially if Celestia visited the exiled drones, letting them know that she is aware of them and accepts them into her kingdom.

Wonder what will happen when Scrape accuses Queen Chrysalis herself.

god dammit raugos

"Perfectly functional form of stress relief," that's one way to put it. :rainbowlaugh:

7511282 Sequel! We have a winner here!

"Your Majesty, if that is who you really are," snarled Scrape. "Seize her! Don't let her get away!"

Was that a confession?
It totally is a confesssion!
Size him! He's a changelling trying to steal our love trough great fanfics!

Fanfiction writers certainly feed on attention and declarations of adoration, that's for sure. Mostly the attention, though.

7511489 I wonder if fimfiction writers are secretly changelings...

I'm not one though. Nope. Totally a regular author who doesn't want your delicious, delicious love and adoration for any stories I write...*drools*

Proud of you Max.

I think I'm actually Pinkie in human skin... :pinkiecrazy:

^^Either that, or Pinkie writes my stuff for me. I don't know, I'm just a h00m1n.

She winced and squirmed to a slightly less painful position, then grinned hopefully. “I mean, would it matter if I was a pony?”

....I see what you did there. Don't think I wouldn't.

Made me laugh though. XD

still surprised that's still a meme

I suddenly have a craving for more changeling 'fics, preferably in this(or a similar) universe.

whew - For a minute there, I thought you'd killed Max.

Dear Princess Celestia,

I have recently discovered that I, too, am a pony, and so have taken the liberty of acquiring citizenship in Manehattan. I must admit that I'm a little surprised at how easy it was to have myself elected as governor simply by pandering to the general public's fear of changelings and other foreign species.

Looking forward to seeing you at the diplomatic summit.

P.S.: As of today, Manehattan has declared itself a sovereign state and has seceded from Equestria.

Governor Chrysalis, of the Republic of Manehattan

7511286 This story isn't all about Thorax, though. But it does help with popularity to include new characters that everyone's currently talking about.

7511444 7511489 7511545 Yaaassss... feeeed ussss! :pinkiecrazy:

7511696 Good thing that this story doesn't hinge entirely on that joke, then. :derpytongue2: Besides, I don't think it's really a meme anymore. I'm just incredibly late to the party.

7510951 I aim to please. :twilightblush:

7512181 It all started here.


7512178 I think it was funny simply because you were so late to the party. I simply wasn't expecting it. XD

it was also a very cute inversion of the original, which I thought was rather brilliant of you

7511545 We've always been suspicious of Horizon...

Never thought I would be on the receiving end of a swarm rush. It sucks big time.

Dang it, six-pooled again. :(

If nothing else, Shining had introduced her to a whole new world of fiction that made her life just a little less torturous.

Ha! Of course, because Shining is, himself, a colossal nerd!


"Your Majesty, if that is who you really are," snarled Scrape. "Seize her! Don't let her get away!"

There was a moment of awkward silence, as Scrape stood there, pointing his hoof accusingly at Queen Crysalis, who sat lounging on a couch with an open Daring Do Novel, before Scrape became acutely aware of the fact that there was literally no one else in the hive.

Chrysalis stared at him for a moment, before returning to her book and soundly ignoring any further outbursts.

I liked this interesting look into the changeling idiocracy, and this definately sorta kinda fits into the would it matter group


I wan't to down vote and yet... I can't , because you're absolutely right

I'd love to see more of this story. Very well written

Quibble blinked. “Really? That’s some family you must have.”
Max rolled her eyes and chuckled. “Oh, you have no idea.”


Ah, that was a fun read. Indeed, when you're surrounded by idiots, facepalming (facehoofing?) becomes a new sport.


Governor Chrysalis, of the Republic of Manehattan

I would read that story. Not even kidding.

7513370 I second that! And also the story of how Scrape became the last changeling on equestria :rainbowlaugh:

That soldier's a spy!

That spy is a solider!

7513673 We're all soldiers now. :rainbowdetermined2:

I have this strange feeling that the hive as a whole is a bit unhealthily obsessed with Shining.

I'd feel sorry for Max, but honestly she kind of sounds like a bit of a jerk.

Fun story.

If they didn’t get off of her soon, she might actually require the assistance of an air pump to get back into her original shape.

I like that one.

“I mean, would it matter if I was a pony?”

That reference...

Good story!

Just wait till he discovers Fimfiction...

That Changeling is not ours!

A nice twist on the typical theme. Good work!

Very funny and a nice read. :pinkiehappy: The changeling seem very in character for what I have seen of them from the comics. Max meeting quibble pants was a nice touch too. :twilightsmile:

Then Rainbow Dash discovers her fanfic and shares it with Twilight who points it out to Spike who then runs it over to the Crystal Empire at which point Thorax flies to Manhatten and demands a cut of Max's adoration reserves!

"Would it matter if I was a pony?"

"All the while, Scrape stood before her like a puppy waiting for a treat."

Faved and followed! :pinkiehappy:

7513370 It's even easier to convince people who don't know anything that there's no reason to fear. Especially when you're secretly working for the invaders and a modestly adept liar.

"The Man-changeling-an Candidate"

7511545 *Alondro sprays you in the face with RAID* AH-HA!!! You fell to the ground screaming in agony about how it burns your eyes! Since RAID kills BUGS, this MUST mean you're a CHERNGELERNG!! :pinkiecrazy:


Well, that was fun, although to be perfectly honest seeing you write this raises a big question in my mind. How are you reconciling the show's Thorax with the Thorax in your other stories? Are they somehow the same changeling? Are there two (or more) changelings with the same name? Are you splitting timelines? Something else?

THis was definitely amusing! Though I am curious about why Daring Doo hasn't shut her down.

Still, this was definitely some good fun and I would love to see a sequel or something!

7513702 Oh, she totally is a jerk. Hopefully an entertaining one, at least. Like a snarkier Rainbow Dash without Loyalty.

7515195 Personally, I'm treating them more like alternate universes, though some have suggested that you could technically imagine canon Thorax as my version of Thorax having amnesia after surviving the events in Integration. Or maybe there are at least two changelings named Thorax running around because Chrysalis got lazy at one point. :derpytongue2:

7515494 Like most authors whose works have become part of popular culture, she probably knows it's not a good idea to shut down fan projects. Either that, or Max hasn't yet gained enough popularity to warrant her attention.

“Fourteen Daring Do novels, seven issues of Power Ponies, tickets to a Star Trot convention, several hundred pages’ worth of writing – secret messages, no doubt – and two posters of Shining Armour.”

Damn, wish I'd thought of that one! So Star Wars™ would be Stable Wars?

7514967 Threw my last can of Raid™ in the bin, didn't work, gave the flies nothing more than a sneezing fit. Gone back to using Aussie made Mortein™ fast kill, at least that works!
As I read the can' Made in Malaysia'. :facehoof:

Why do I have a feeling this was less about Max being a pony, and more of them just using it as an excuse to get rid of her?
