Celestia prepares for another routine day at the castle with the recent addition of teaching her new, young student. However, an impromptu structure made from books causes a slight change of plans.

Inspired by the cover art and it's description, both used with permission from the wonderful Nova Quill.

“You should have made that a royal decree.”

“—I’ve lived here my entire life, andWhat?!”

“The part about the clipboard,” Celestia said. “I empowered you with a noble rank, if temporarily. You should have made it a decree…”

Raven stared at the princess in bewilderment.

“Also you’re hired.”

:twilightsmile: More books! Yesyesyesyesyes!
:twilightsheepish: Ahem, I mean, that sounds like fun.

:trollestia: actually, I need you to read these today. (Pink bag with blue heart, full of teen magazines appears...)

:twilightoops: Eeek...

How DARE you make a wonderful heart-warming fic that got me to positively GUFFAW?! You should be PROUD of yourself for melting a minuscule fleck of ice from that empty void in my chest! I hope yer HAPPY! To display my absolute lividity with you, I say HAVE A GOOD NIGHT SIR! *Storms off to dream of adorable fillies and their reading books*

"I would, but you see” — Celestia’s smile suddenly went supernova — “I’m all booked up at the moment.”

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

We need more of this Celestia.

ah.. a very practical lesson indeed celestia. knowing the limits to her memory is a good way to proceed with ehr lessons.

Slowly, the corners of Celestia’s lips crawled upwards not unlike a spider leisurely making its way across its web. “Light bulb…” she muttered to herself.

no book fort... am dissapoint.

lol.... 'to build or to read? twilight: yes!




loved it.

Celestia still couldn’t help but wonder if the look had less to do with her royal position and more to do with the fact she was two to three times taller than almost all her subjects and also the fact that her sparkling, pastel-colored mane and tail of green, pink, purple, and teal waved about regardless of the wind conditions, outdoors or in.

Eh, I suspect a bit of both.

launcher herself

LauncheD.

Celestia’s smile crept upwards as hints of mischief stealthily made their way into the dark corners of her face. “Well then, perhaps a different lesson is in order.” She looked about. “We’re going to need more space…” Her smile grew. “…and books.”

Dear god...

For the love of God, Montresor!

*applauds*

Well done! A thoroughly enjoyable story from start to finish! :trollestia:

“You’re both empowered to make decisions on my behalf,” Celestia said with a wave of her forehoof. “I dub thee both… ‘Temporary Super Duke and Duchess’ for the day. You two can pick who is which.”

I love this Celestia

Kibitz has been working at the castle for a long time. He knows exactly how to deal with the Princess of the Sun.

If ever a fic deserved to be made into a comic, then given audio and/or made into animation, this is it.

Celestia mauled over the oddity of the suggestion briefly.

While the mental image of Celestia viciously attacking a suggestion is hilarious and adorable - and for some reason involves Phoenix Wright - I'm pretty sure you mean mulled.

That poor librarian...

I laughed far too hard reading this. Bravo.

*Snorts with laughter and chokes to death on own saliva:

The Celestia of my dreams. Some of them. The others are Wargodlestia. But this one is just perfect.

Aw, that was adorable and hilarious with just a bit of sadness. My favorite parts were probably all the references to a certain other former student. Funny to think that this is Celestia restraining herself (a little bit) around Twilight, considering how her last student turned out after Celestia flaunted the rules a few too many times.

Wonder if she has a folder marked "Times she should have been more strict with Sunset Shimmer". She probably avoids that folder. Another great fic, though honestly I'm still curious about how much more their childhoods differed. Like "Knowledge is Power Hour" sounds like it damaged more books than Twilight would have been happy with.

*Grasps throat and chokes on laughter than falls limp*

A great deal of the stuff she mentally reviewed double as "I should have been more strict with Sunset Shimmer."

I just adore your portrayal of Kibitz.

at the off-white earth pony, which had both her brown tail and made up in buns,

Perhaps "at the off-white Earth Pony, whose brown mane and tail were each wrapped in a tightly knit bun," would be better?

a light-tan unicorn, which had both his greying brown tail and mane tied up in ponytails and . He also had wore glasses, but they

This line also definitely needs some work.

Other than that I greatly enjoyed this first chapter, and I look forward to reading the rest tonight!

7800023 Oh please she's plainly outgrown that childish habit. Why she hasn't made a book fort in.....oh.....a month!:facehoof:

SIDEWAYS ! :D

I Lol'd Heartily :D

This was the most adorable filly Twilight story I have read so far. Amazing job!:twilightsmile:

“S-sure…” Twilight looked at her teacher then down to the floor which must have seemed far, far away from the small filly. “C-can we begin lessons on the ground?” she asked.

SOOOO CUTE! :heart:

Celestia’s smile crept upwards as hints of mischief stealthily made their way into the dark corners of her face. “Well then, perhaps a different lesson is in order.” She looked about. “We’re going to need more space…” Her smile grew. “…and books.”

Ah, so that's where her undying devotion and hero worship of Celestia comes from. :trollestia:

this Tower of Babel!

:moustache: Well played.

“Princess Celestia?” Twilight began in an imploring tone. “Can we go back to the library tomorrow?”
Celestia contemplated this request momentarily. “To read, or to build?” she asked.
“Yes,” Twilight replied simply.

:raritystarry:

Awesome work, well done. :twilightsmile:

Really, really needs a proofreading. Also it's a wonderful story, and the errors don't take away from that.

Cutie mark looked like a red X in the small view

“You’re both empowered to make decisions on my behalf,” Celestia said with a wave of her forehoof. “I dub thee both… ‘Temporary Super Duke and Duchess’ for the day. You two can pick who is which.”

Well at least Princess Celestia remembered not to force any gender rolls on them.

With a grit of his teeth and a quaking of his head, Kibitz regained his composure enough to say, “But it’s Mrs. Inkwell’s first day!”

Hey! Don't count her out just because of that, Super Duchess Kibitz!...Wait a second, Super Duke Raven's married? Does that make her spouse 'Temporary Super Duke/Duchess' for the day as well?

Raven only managed to stammer a few beginnings of sentences doomed to never be completed. “I…er… I’ll do my… Uh… That is…”

Well at least Super Duke Raven is a humble Super Duke. I completely approve of this new decision of royalty! Let's just hope her spouse is equally humble.

Whoops! That should just be "Ms." Fixed!

7801431 Really? I didn't think that was an error, I just thought that was some funny insight. Sorry if I sounded rude about it.

7801447

Now, no worries. I called her Ms. hopefully everywhere else in the fic, but I musta messed up there.

First few paragraphs need a whole lot of work, if this wasn't so highly rated I likely would have stopped reading.

That said, after getting through it, I'm already enjoying the rest!

So many amazing lines.

This is not how I see Celestia in a serious setting, but in terms of a comedy, it was gold.

You are awesome.

And to think that I used to believe that nerds couldn't be adorable.

Man, nobody liked Sunset Shimmer back in the day, and now she's best pony.

Alright, fixed what looked to be the trouble ones up. Not sure what was going on with me when I wrote those... :twilightblush:

Minor grammatical quibble at the very start:

Celestia reflexively met the awe and anxious anxiety-filled expression the young mare was giving her with a gentle, reassuring smile.

Beyond that, this story looks promising. :ajsmug:

It’s not quite aggregation aggravation, thought Celestia.

I'm pretty sure it's not quite aggregation. :derpytongue2:
