Pretentious prick peddles pretty pony prose.

This story is a sequel to Scrambled Serenity


Princess Celestia is a very well-adjusted mare. Lifein Equestria is often as orderly as she is.

Personally, Celestia has had few surprises - oh, there were a few: the unexpected return of her dear sister, Discord's return, the Crystal Empire's, and Tirek's escape. Maybe there were a few others, but most things, she finds, are nice and calculated.

Now, Princess Celestia has a very big surprise, and it all starts with a few cracks in a single egg.

She did not swallow of flinch.

Um

The blankets also helped cover the face Discord drew on it with permanent marker, insisting that 'Eggbert' ought to have a good view of their parents.

Of course he named it Eggbert

"OUR BABY IS HATCHING! EGGY IS FINALLY GOING TO-"

....And nicknamed it Eggy

was within that egg, and had been since they'd been, ah, introduced.

*snrk*

Looks like I have one typo to fix.

I'm gonna assume that you're screaming happy screams.

...I'd be terrified too.

Still, this little girl filly kirin is going to have an awesome Aunty, a loving cousin, and two wonderful godmothers.

Celestia: contact Fluttershy at once. She'll know what to do!

8347269
A cousin?

I'm gonna assume Flutters is one of those godmothers. Once again, she's the unspoken hero of one of my stories.

That was beautiful...

So, not only do you write Celestia perfectly, but you're also a fellow asexual too?

Yep, I'mma gonna follow you.

8347312
Omg another ace? :D

Oh, and I've written some characters on the spectrum too~

8347316
Yep! :pinkiehappy:

Oh? I'll have to look into those some time then.

8347324
I honestly thought there were only, about three or so. Guess I'm just the most vocal about it?

8347330
That might be it.

YOU'RE FEATURED

Thanks for letting me know! :D

Brilliant story. Captured Celesta's experience very neatly there.

Wonderful story, Ice Star! As always. :twilightsmile:

Cadence is considered Celestia's niece, correct? Wouldn't that make her a cousin?

8348500
Ah, yes. For a moment I thought you were referring to an offspring of Luna's.

And now, this needs to be a thing.

8348723
Hmm? Luna to have a foal?

THE SONG MADE ME CRY. I LOVE THIS STORY AND RADIOHEAD. :heart:

8350048
Radiohead will do that.

Celestia as an overwhelmed new parent...

I can see that. Good read. Would love to see more from this.

I always thought that Celly can make a good mother figure if she's prepared - like with Twi, Cady, and Sunny. But if it came to infants? Her own children? I think she'd be freaking out. Thank you for reading!

And this Celestia/her foal/etc. appear in my other stories too! So there is more, just not in the short story continuity.

There's more Celly being overwhelmed with parenting in the prequel, in case you haven't read that and want a similar tone. I double checked my notifications and apparently you already read that! Whoopsie!

Where else (besides the prequel) from you can I get Baby Dislestia?

She appears again, in Enemy of Mine, but has yet to appear, however she's (the daughter) is still a secondary character. Celestia is the focal character.

the unexpected return of her dear sister,

That wasn't unexpected. She pretty much had the entire timeline laid out by a very convenient prophecy and was on the lookout for the Bearers from the get-go.

Prophecies kinda let you cheat a lot. Like that Star Wars prophecy in the prequels... that vague, completely unexplained prophecy... I mean, at least in most cases you learn who made the prophecy and stuff... but really, that was so nebulous I wouldn't be surprised if Yoda read the prophecy out of a newspaper horoscope.

Same with Celestia: The Princess sighs, "Oh will my dear sister ever return. Magic 8 Ball?" She shakes it and reads 'Signs point to yes.... also find 6 random mares to throw at all your problems...' :trollestia:

Not really. In this continuity, she only thought that the whole 'stars aid in her escape' thing might be real shortly before Sunset Shimmer came into play - there's a few stories I wrote about it/that mention it frequently.

So Luna's return was entirely unexpected, and the main six were mostly chance.

She wanted to protect what creature - a kirin - lay inside, but she wanted to protect that little kirin in the same way that she desired to protect every good pony.

And then the baby was seen...

Discord wiped some tears of joy from his eyes as Celestia wretched, "Oh dear daughter will bring so much chaos to the world I'm sending her to! I believe I'll have David Lynch be her caretaker!"

And now you know how he did that effect... :fluttershbad:

And so we see that it was an "Eraserhead" crossover the whole time! What a twist! :trollestia:
