'It's not about if you win or lose. Sometimes it's about how many pages you add to the rulebook.'



When Twilight Sparkle had the magical surge that cemented her place as Celestia's student, the amount of power she released not only hatched a baby Dragon, it brought forth something else. Something that shouldn't exist any more.
Something that has Celestia worried.

A fluffy puppy.

[Despite the gore tag it's rather light on that, and they have yet to make a lewd tag and there's a bit of that.]

Please! Please! Pleeeeease, tell me you are going to have a few scenes of cuteness with Twilight, Spike, and Rahs as they grow up before they meet the rest of the mane 6.

At least Spike has company. Maybe Moon Dogs age slower?

It’s a VERY good thing you have the Comedy tag so prominent, this chapter was absolutely hilarious!
Yes, even the part about the would be kidnappers. A bit grim-dark but still able to get a laugh out of.
The only sad part was the roughing up the poor pup got.
Also, the antics I can see the trio and Caddy getting up to MIGHT be worthy of a dark tag. All the damage to palace from the fun and games that are sure to be had in it.

Cadance wont last long against that weapons adorableness:pinkiecrazy:

This is very interesting definitely tracking it.

:rainbowhuh:So Cadence is Twilight's bodyguard?



Cadence is doooooooooomed. I will have to find the cloning spell so I can make sure to have a copy of cadence's mind when they fire the cuteness overload weapon at her.

I did not know Cadence was part of the Thieves Guild or that Equestria had one. I'm not so sure she can withstand the trifecta of weapons-grade cuteness that is Twilight, Rahs and Spike. I'll bet Rahs looks like a mix between a malamute and a pomeranian.

I looked at this and noticed that the author description seemed familiar... then the writing style of comedy and gore-ish stuff... TDR strikes again! You get a favorite, you get a favorite! All your works get favorites!



It can't be misspelled so many times, ergo - it was designed to be this.

I gave all my yes to another story a while ago. I just generated another truck load. Take it. Take all the yes and make more of this awesome adorableness with pup, whelp, and filly shenanigans. And from Celestia's diary too! XD

Rahs de Medici was the inventor of ice cream.

That was pretty hilarious, but unless I'm missing some kind of reference here, you picked a pretty weird name for that. The House of Medici was well-known for being hard-ass medieval bankers and traders, not for being any kind of innovators or inventors. I mean, if you're doing a reference to real-world historical figures, I would've picked someone who fits the theme better.

Also, the thieves guild uses Hobo Code, haha.


Huh... okay fixed.


The dark/gore tag was actually added solely for the kidnapper bit. And perhaps for his eating habits later on. I do like a bit of dark humor to tell the truth.
I have been trying very hard not to use this line as it is a reminder of one of the most hated chars of the 80s.
Cadence isn't Celestia was.In a disguise of course. Actually Rahs' design is based of Red XIII from final fantasy 7. That guy was both a cat and a wolf.
Catherine De Medici [wife of Henry the 2d] was rumored to have brought some chefs to france who knew how to make sorbet. There were earlier names but this one stuck.. and Rahs was Rahs before that. This was just a random tie in i had put together.

Skyrim thieves markings actually.

I mean, they're a fictional race of bat-ponies not named in the canon, so you can technically call them whatever you feel like.
However, the fandom pretty much universally uses Thestrals as they are a actual mythological bat-winged equine species (they also featured in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", which instigated it and pretty much guaranteed its adoption.)

Huh. You learn something new every day.

I actually liked the 'Medici' more than the 'Rahs.' It's just so stereotypically "cool fantasy name." Might just be me, though.

... The mention of a fluffy pupper has caught my attention. I must read...

Hmm... Pupper will run distraction while Spike and Twi grab the cookies. It's the revenge of the foal-sat!
... Hmm? What's that? Wrong universe? Humbug...

Like really good, I’m talking Marey Cloppings good.

"Clopping Mary" sounds like she isn't the most family friendly of foalsitters.

Nah, Cadence is well versed in the ways of the cuteness and has developed an actual counter to all cuteness based attacks. Those who unleash their cute looks while pleading for cookies and being allowed to stay up after bedtime shall be countered with two simple questions.

for cookies, "Do you want one cookie later or none at all?"

And for bedtime "If you don't go to bed now, then you'll oversleep and be tardy for things you want to do."

just the cookie question would work as I don’t know how to work with filly Twilight's personality.

And since it's me suggesting her, Night Light and Twilight Velvet can't complain. Particularly with how much their current sitter is charging them so she could buy full body plate mail. Not that I think that would help when Spike finally realizes he can breath fire on command not just on burp.

Wait until Spike realizes that plate tastes like a cantaloupe. Then the fun will start once she remembers that she is still inside the plate.:pinkiecrazy::scootangel:

I just found this and I absolutely love it! :rainbowlaugh:

[Despite the gore tag it's rather light on that

So why have the gore tag?
It means this story won't appear for people who search with 'gore' redded out, and those who forget to do so - or search in groups or the like - will pass this by just because it has a tag they don't like.

Every way I see it, having a tag when the story contains little of what that tag describes is just detrimental.


Every way I see it, having a tag when the story contains little of what that tag describes is just detrimental.

Because it's a rule. Gore and Sex must be tagged. You don't get to pick.

Fun fact: Hire beings that are apathetic we are immune to cute, flirty, and death looks and/or glares.

8415843 In Equestria, that sort of being is hard, if not impossible to find.

And thank God for that. Disaffected teenagers with a chip on their shoulder are one thing I really do not miss in this show.

Here's hoping Cadence survives her first encounter with those three.
I've got the cardiac teams on standby.

If you've got a puppy, a cute pony and a 'just born' dragon all giving you the puppy eyes, I'll say it now!

You're dead!

... wait a minute:rainbowderp:

Cadence is a cougar!

So adorable we need more of the puppy and he's race there cool interesting lore and cute

Did I really just read about the bucking Medici in a My Little Pony fic did this just happen???? And to look it up and find out that indeed the Medici are involved with the early history of ICE CREAM of all things YE GODS HAVE MERCY ON ME !!!!!


I like weird lore things and super details

It also had the side effect of making her really good with foals. Like really good, I’m talking Marey Cloppings good.

uh, phrasing

“....bork bork bork bork bork.....”

♫ Yorn desh born, der ritt de gitt der gue,
Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn bork! bork! bork! ♪

The canine currently sulking on the other side of the tub was the cause of most of it.

It's funny, isn't it? Dogs love to swim, but hate to be bathed. My last one was downright terrified of it. He'd come out of the experience shaking like a leaf, every single time.

I never could figure out why.

8422465 SO MUCH YES!

“He knows. He just wants Miss Peace Lily back. He liked her. She tasted like cats.” Twilight offered sticking her tongue out at the mental image.

And the laughing started

“Alright let's get you dried off.” Cadence smirked pulling him out of the sink and setting him on a towel rubbing it over his smooth scales, the purple and green seeming to shine from the washing. “ Once we get you all set we'll give your brother and sister a bath and then you can play............ what?”

Cadence perked her ears as she turned back around. As she gave Spike a bath the room had still been filled with the noise of Twilight slurping up her pasta and Rahs licking the last few drips of his dinner out of his bowl, pushing it across the floor as he did so. Then it all went silent.

Looking around Cadence now saw she was alone in the room with Spike. Confused for a moment she recalled number 56 on the list.

'Never say the word bath around Twilight and Rahs.'

“Crud.” Cadence grumbled as Spike laughed.

laughing just intensified

Spike giggling on her back drew her attention to him as the little Dragon squealed and looked up at the ceiling. Looking up herself she saw a small purple Unicorn, horn glowing stuck to the ceiling up by the light.

was wondering when Caddy would figure that out.
Older brother, so it was obvious



It was hilarious, really. Throw him in a river and suddenly, you've got an undercover sea dog on your hands. Toss a bit of soap after him, though? OH GOD NO IT'S MELTING ME AAAAAAAGHBARKBARK

8422511 Mica was horrified by wet! Dew kept her out of the grass when I let her out to do her thing. You could scald her with hot water and she’d still be shivering and chattering her teeth by the end of the bath and trying to give you that look of “why do you try to kill me?”

It's adorable, isn't it? Dogs are the best thing. I really want to get another, but my current lifestyle (and cat) just wouldn't allow for it.

Pretty much an all round animal person that prefers cats!
But wont turn down snuggling a fluffy anything!

I'm actually a fan of rats, myself. They're smart as hell, much more loving and affectionate than you'd think, and don't require much in the way of expenses.

They live only for two years or so, though, and that gets hard on you after a while... so I've stopped keeping them.

'Never say the word bath around Twilight and Rahs.'

“Crud.” Cadence grumbled as Spike laughed.


Don't fret over the meager amount of down votes but maybe some people didn't like how you initially presented the story? I didn't say anything because I wanted to make sure and see where the story went first before I said anything but by the time I finished reading chapter 2 I found myself asking myself. Is there going to be dialogue in this story? or is the story going to be completely depicted through Celestia's journal entries?

Of course I'm glad the story marched in past the diary entries but maybe it would be better if you condensed it somehow? Those diary entries feel out of place past the prologue in my opinion.
