A little lopsided in the temporal lobe: a telltale sign of a crippling mare addiction.

Well that was well written and not over the top.

Just a weird conversation between two dudes. Not bad.

A very good little story. I like how the pony is trying to say'stop being a jerk' in as nice a way as possible. I can see the humans point of view as well, even if he has a difficult time articulating it to his friend. He might be thinking that he doesn't want to go to far his explanation and bring up anything confrontational. The pony is very open minded, which would be character for most all ponies.

I wonder if there are any stories where these type relationships are explored more in depth? Would be an interesting perspective on this subject I think.

At the end of the day, I do think Crisp is wrong and John is right. But I enjoyed it nonetheless.

He keeps saying "There's a pony out there for you." While he did list off other races and say it didn't matter, he wasn't exactly pushing him in that direction. He seems angsty about dating ponies mainly because of the differences and the unspoken undertone of the fact that ponies are different here. He might do better to start with a griffon, or maybe a minotaur female. Something where they can go out to eat and have meat and not get stared at.

Cheers, and thanks for commenting guys! Sorry about the long comment ahead.

[John] has a difficult time articulating it to his friend.

I do think Crisp is wrong and John is right.

To address both of you: John's actual question wasn't answered, which I will explain shortly here: Crisp did not "address the issue of humans seeing the ponies like those from humanity's Earth" due to John's failed communication. Below is a detailed explanation of the story.

That's kind of the way I was heading out, yeah.

When I set out to write this story, I wanted to firstly, address the issue of humans dating beyond their humanity, and secondly, address the issue of humans seeing the ponies like those from humanity's Earth.

This evolved into John trying to bring this in at the beginning of the conversation, only to be knocked off by Crisp Fold due to a lack of communication:

“Sorry, sorry.” John sighed. “Ponies. Ponies and humans should not mix. That’s my thinking.”

“What’s wrong with that?”

John was taken aback. “Huh?”

“You know what I mean,” Crisp began, “ponies mix with other species all the time. Minotaurs, Saddle Arabians, even Yaks. So is that your problem? That you’re human and we’re ponies?”

John groaned and put his face in his hands. “It’s hard to explain.”

The conversation then took the course of Crisp's assumption that John was simply exhibiting some xenophobic tensions. Due to John's wariness of explaining the difference between Earth's ponies and ponies in Equestria, Crisp was allowed to take hold of the conversation.

John was then led through the ropes by Crisp to address the first issue, dating beyond humanity, but this resulted in the ignorance of John's second and true question, with his lack of answer hinted at in his hesitation towards the end:

John grunted and downed the rest of his drink. “Why are you still going on about this?”

“I don’t think you’ve entirely agreed to it yourself. You’re, you’re still hesitant.”

John snorted. “Am I really that open?”

“Uh, yeah! Your emotions are really out there.”

Oh, and also, John wouldn't want to jump into the dating business for griffons or minotaurs, he's there for them cute horsies. Too adorable to put down, and just pretty enough to date. :yay:

I hope I get to review this for PCaRG! Looks nice. Upvoted.

Hmmm...

...

Not bad. Wouldn't mind seeing where this goes.

Very nice nice, i would like to see a sequel. Although I'm also thrilled to see how he surpasses her looks. After all she's still a pony. And hell no I don't want no clopfics!
