She's looking at you. Yes you. And she is judging you with her eyes. There is no escape.


This story is a sequel to The Weed

Sometimes, things you never intended to have happen, happen anyway. And sometimes, there are consequences. Sometimes, these consequences are tragic, and at other times, a new beginning, chance for something wonderful to happen.

Every now and then, they are weapons grade adorable.

This is deeply rooted (Get it, rooted?) in the Weedverse. Without reading The Weed, and having some small knowledge of the 'verse in general, it might be difficult to understand what is going on.

Chapters (3)
Comments ( 148 )

The foal—cub—whatever a manticore and a pony made when they bred, had a coat that was a distinctive shade of chocolate brown, a very distinctive shade of chocolate brown,

*ding* Oh no.
*reads on*
Oh dear.
Well, that's an interesting development. I didn't think that that incident would create offspring.

I have been waiting for this event for 506 days now!

This plot twist is sheer evilness!

7612696 so you're the unnamed individual? I was honestly never expecting this. Kudos for calling it out, but im still shocked that that actually made an offspring.

As soon as you mentioned the event being in the first chapter (yes, nasty, nosey me has peeked under the spoiler :scootangel:), I was almost certain that you were planning this. Great to see Twilight Velvet in action, and always nice to have Wormy around.

“Manticores eat their own young,” Wormwood said, shaking his head.

Wormy, if this was universially true, they would be extinct by now. :raritywink:


This is all your fault, isn't it? You just couldn't leave well enough alone, you had to poke the bear, didn't you?

I'm far too sober to deal with this level of cuteness... :moustache:

Great gods, she's a weapon of mass destruction. Chuck her at the enemy and watch them all fall into diabetic comas.

I won't claim full credit for getting this out at this time, but I'm sure I posed the question to Kudzu on the infamous day this was conceived!

Pieces started to fall when Velvet mentioned hybrid of manticore and equine stock. Picture was made full when the chocolate brown pelt was brought into play.

I'm kinda curious where exactly in the timeline this falls. Either way we now have a new adorable cub around.

7612671 when magic is involved especially during unusual situations odd things can happen.


Personally, I think of Megara as a sphinx. A winged one.


So an Alar-Gynosphinx?


I have no idea what that is.

7612818 so catlike? It's a cat-horse? With wings.


Alar is an old word for winged (it's like latin or something, I'm not sure of it's origin), and the corruption of Alarcorn is where Alicorn as Winged Unicorn comes from).

Gynosphinx is Female Sphinx (Gynocologist, Misogynist, Gynoid, Gyn being the latin root(?) for female opposed to Andro (for male).

So in fancy words Alar-Gynosphinx, or Winged-Female-Cat-Bird-Person-Riddle-speaking-thing.


Alar is what threw me off. I had a little context for the rest of it, but I wasn't sure about the context for alar.


Fairy nuff.

I've got this whole running headcanon that over the last 1000 years the unicorn noble houses and playwrites have been switching the language up to replace Alarcorn with Alicorn (Alicorn being the material that a unicorn's horn is made from) in one of the most subtle forms of tribalism.

Celestia couldn't shut it down without being accused of censorship, and Luna doesn't know who to punch as the problem is so deeply entrenched in Equestrian society by now.

Gracious! What an astonishing cast you are assembling!

Ooooh this is going to be good :pinkiehappy::twilightsmile::ajsmug:

Oh wow that event at the beginning of The Weed.

... Well, I'm definitely curious as to how this is going to work.

Considering the previous two stories, I'm surprised that there isn't any sex in this story.

So what can ponies not crossbreed with? :derpyderp2:

I think this is adorkable. Here is hoping the harlot pony that was Tarnished's first consensual time doesn't show up with a surprise trying to cash in on his name/fame.


I can't mention her fate in the comments section of a rated E story. :trixieshiftright:


Rated E. For everypony. :derpytongue2:


Oh look, someone already typed up my reaction.

Also, exciting. :pinkiehappy:

Also Kudzu, does this take place before or after VI?

Mother Earth and Father Sky! You've done it again.


Haha, brilliant, thank you. :twilightsheepish:

Megara Teapot Another interesting character, concerning names didn't Trixie call the Manticore in her act Terrance?:rainbowhuh:

7613540 Well going to have to eat humble pie, was sure Trixie said in S6E6 backstage somewhere how she was 'lucky to find a helpful manticore like Terrance' but I can't find it again. Don't know where I heard that now, sorry for inconvenience.:facehoof:

Uh-oh... I still don't recall Tarnish ever telling Maud who he lost his virginity to... :twilightoops:

Moar weaponized cuteness. .ack. ..my heart. .

Oh my god, that may be an unhealthy amount of cute. Ponies start kind of cute and catlike, making it that much more explicitly so is almost unfair.

Also, woah, surprise sister.

Darn it Tarnished you make way to cute offspring!!!!

Velvet might be bending the rules a little but the pony she;s taking Megara to is a responsible pony. Then there Megara's weaponized cuteness looking forward to seeing this continue though at times Megara seems more feline than equine

I am loving this. I need more. When you feel like giving us more of course.

If figuratively, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat.
I'm halfway through my desk with my nose inside the screen.
The tension builds

Can...can she get a cutiemark?

She is too cute not too...

The paragraph about teeth is pure gold. I can see Wormwood and Megara posing for nightmares.

The only Pony Megara would be a nightmare for with how cute she is is Rainbow Dash. Everyone else is likely to just suffer cuteness induced heart attacks.

7616349 ironically it seems for some reason half the ponies they met are scared of Megara and the other half find her absolutely adorable

Secondary comment from the timing Megara logically should be older than Pebble. She seems more like a very young kitten at time than an older cub


She's feral and not educated. She is also a different species.

7616367 granted and there are many details I don't know that affect things. Though even feral cats learn biting their own tail hurts rather quickly. just commenting at time she seems much younger than other factors seem to indicate


She acts like a child. Pebble... well... Pebble acts like Pebble, most of the time.

She needs a cutie mark in cuteness
