Just a dude who loves to write. Favorite Genre: Slice of Life/Comedy. Favorite Ship: Rarijack. Favorite Ponies: Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack, and Twilight


Affection therapy: a new and innovative practice in Equestria wherein the patient/subject is calmed and relaxed through simple displays of platonic affection, such as ear scratches, nose boops, and belly rubs. It's surprisingly effective, and leaves the pony happy and content. The strangest thing, however, is that you, a simple human living in Ponyville, 'invented' this practice completely by accident.

*I wrote this a long time ago, before Every Little Thing She Does aired. The first chapter takes place between No Second Prances and that episode, and I decided to touch it up and release it now as an early Christmas gift to you guys, as a simple piece of cute, platonic fluff. More to come, too, when I find the time and inspiration. :pinkiehappy: :twilightsmile:

This is good as a one shot or you could just keep going with different sessions for different ponies. Well done both idea and writing. It's getting a fav.

Loved it! Also love your characterization of starlight in this.

Continue this... You have to, we demand it of you! You cannot stop this after just a single pony! (Even if that pony is one of the best ones) You have a duty to FIMFiction! To Bronykind! You must uphold this new pillar of our society! :raritycry:

Okay, so I'm a tad too used to writing for dramatic character, what can one do? But, in all seriousness, I really want this to continue. Even if it doesn't, you still get a Favorite from me, and Like number 22.

This was beautiful. Just so fluffy, so nice. The smile I have on right now. Heh, it's almost as if I went through something similar like that therapy.
If you ever get any ideas of expanding upon this... I'd love to read more.
Have a thumbs up and a fav, well-deserved :twilightsmile:

I could definitely see a series being made out of this. And I could definitely see myself reading it too. This whole thing took the warm fuzzies up to 11 and I loved it :pinkiehappy:

I would love to see some more of this. Maybe do almost all of the ponies that have any sort of story. This is a lot like A Moment with Dr. Wolf, and it is great. Liked, faved, and definitely going to follow you for more.

Now I need therapy to help recover from strong cases of Glimmerbetes and Twiabetes I got from reading this.............just kidding. I like having these diseases:rainbowlaugh::rainbowkiss:.

I guess our Glim Glam is a little chub, isn't she?

7812572 Heh, that's my headcanon of her, at least, kind of like how I envisioned pre-alicorn Twilight

7812600 Actually, people had proven that one about Twi right with comparisons, DHX did cares enough to put in that detail.

...I want a second chapter or a Sequel with Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon as it would be diabetes inducing levels of adorable.

Absolutely grinworthy. :pinkiehappy: The only downside is realizing that I'm not actually the "you" in this story.

I love cute stuff like this. It's a good pick-me-up story.


I noticed in Daring Don't, that they'd changed out her body model with the more alicorn/supermodel-style, belly sloping up towards her her flanks instead of the belly-type that she'd had previous and the others still have. 'Course that's also when I noticed her horn was just a touch sharper/longer, and she was a teensy bit taller.

Finally, the doors open, and there stands Princess Twilight Sparkle herself. You can still vaguely remember the days when she had been a simple unicorn.

I'm not sure how much he knows her, but I always think it is odd how nervous they suddenly are about a friend or someone from which they know aren't suddenly an asshole because of turning into a princess.

Are their any storys in which a Human is doing something like this and suddenly the ponys thinks they are dating? You know doing stuff and suddenly you hear that others consider them to date. I would be more specific, but I think it is better to just collect what you can suggest me first.

You simply sit there, mouth hanging open. She had really done all that? She took cutie marks from an entire village? She went back in time? You had no idea she could’ve had such a dark and...troubled past.

Is he supposed to know what the Cutie Mark stuff meant for the ponys? I just want to know if this is the type of universe, where it is actually affecting them, or that type of unverse, where the ponys just focuse on that one talent and never try something new.

Sometimes it looks to me like Luna and Starlight had such difficult moments to make friends with others or that others looked weird at them, because they had a more similar way to think like Humans and that it maybe is to alien for the ponys in the show. (It is a bad explanation, but I can't do anything better right now.)

edit: I accidently finished the comment to soon.
Sooo...,that was realy one of the better one-shots, I might even put it in one of my libaries.

I would love to see more from this, and no if I understand one of your blogs right, then I don't think you would actually have to write every scene, describing that he goes to work would be enough, I'm actually hoping that one of his sessions starts to lead to a romance, maybe with Starlight since he already got that thank you kiss, or maybe with one of the rarely used ponys for a monogamus....well one pony and one human relationship. (forgot how to write that word)
Mrs. Harswinney, Mrs Mayor Mare, Carrot Top are three of the poonys that are my favourites at the moment, at least for such storys at the moment.

A really sweet and wonderful story. It really put a smile on my face with it's cuteness. Thanks and also merry christmas and happy holidays to you and all other readers out there. :twilightsmile:

This left me wanting more. Should keep going!

Man, you really should continue going further into this story! This really left me wanting more, bruh!

One word to describe this:



Oh and the story is great, too.

Wonderful story! Please is my comments in your follow up. Just simply beautiful!

Today had been quite a day, and it was looking like tomorrow was going to be the same. All in a day’s work for Ponyville's resident affection therapist.

...I'm guessing I'm not getting paid for these services?
*Sighs* Fine. At least I gain a friend with each "affection Therapy" session.

Yes! That would be awesome. It would be interesting to see Rainbow Dash or even Cadence go through this.

I was listening to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAGwGTOSU5I
I could not stop smiling.

Yay! I was needing some warm fuzzies! thank you!
The second person writing took a little bit to get used to, but you did well with it.

As though it were required by the sacred laws of boopage, she boops you back with her hoof,

Do not mock the sacred law of boopage, it has been passed down for many generations. :rainbowdetermined2:

I love it when my comments get buried. Thanks love!


7817544 I'm sorry, but I really didn't want an altercation going on in the comments.

Oh boy! What a love MLP Christmas Story here! I enjoyed your other story of Dave living a simple life in Equestria and I knew the moment of who I saw who the author was I knew it would be a grand tale. And I was not disappointed. :raritywink:

I really loved and enjoyed this one-shot here and I like the subtle little hint of us (the Reader) having a small crush on Starlight. Honestly there's not enough or any at all fanfics involving Starling in a romantic relationship with a Human which I would like to see. Honestly here is the closest I'll get to seeing that kind of story. Though the little Twilight part at the end was cute as well. Though who was the first pony? You mentioned it was an Earth Pony mare so Bon Bon or just a random Pony?

I would love to see a second part involving the Reader and Twilight in their session next, though I wonder how long us the Reader been in Equestria? As they've known Twilight as an Unicorn before her ascension into an Alicorn Princess, though it's strange how hesitant the Reader is when talking to her. I would believe they be friends beforehand or hoof in this case, but maybe not every day friends like Twilight is with hers. Like to know a little more on that.

That being said I'm favoriting this. I loved it that much. Thank you for a wonderful Hearth's Warming and Christmas story for everyone to enjoy. ^_^

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful time this holiday. :pinkiehappy:

THIS. IS. SO. CUTE!!!! I imagined a normal brony instead of myself, though. PLEASE do one with Derpy. PLEEEAAASEEE:derpytongue2::twilightblush:

You have no idea how much I want to do this. It sounds like pure heaven.

Just as wonderful and warm-hearted as the first chapter! Looking forward to more.

Just as therapeutic for the giver as the receiver, I imagine. Much like a dog... that could tell you where it wants petted. :twilightsmile:

Good chapter! Though I gotta say that 'labyrinth-like' is already a word: labyrinthine

lol, no problem. I dont have a problem with the original at all, but Twilight (at least in my eyes) is one of those kind of people who reads dictionaries for fun and thesauruses before bedtime. She knows her vocab, lol.

It would be rather funny if Flutters arranged a session for Discord. XD

Darn it, how much more cuteness can your heart take with these ponies!?

Welcome to Equestria

Ah, what a lovely chapter. And a great start to a morning as well :twilightsmile:
Nice, slow, uneventful (not a bad thing in this case) and just so, so sweet.

I wonder if our hero ever gets in over his head with more sessions scheduled than he can handle. Probably yes, once the word goes around.

Labyrinthine is not a word, could'ja change it to Labyrinth please?
