"Burninating the countryside... burninating the peasants... burninating all the peoples... and their thatched-roof COTTAGES! THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!! And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIGHT!!!"


Big Macintosh knows himself. He knows how life works on the farm. And he definitely knows that ponies don’t return once their lives are over.

But when somepony Big Mac doesn’t expect begins appearing at Sweet Apple Acres, he finds the biggest questions lie not with the visitor, but with himself.

I think Big Mac is one of my favorite characters in MLP, mainly because of his shallow, but bright personality. 😊

In my MLP story, I created an OC that has some similar traits to Big Macintosh, and the farm stallion tries to get to know the pony better, but he wants more than a friend, like Macintosh: he wants a family. He's never had a family after his original family died during an invasion in Equestria, and Big Mac leads the lonely stallion in the right direction.

Even though he's shy and abit awkward, Macintosh is a very determined pony, which is what I like most about him. 😄

And in this story of yours, it reminds me of that trait he has. 😀

Excellent one-shot. I've always liked ol' Big Mac, and it's nice to see a story look into his thoughts.

Sorry I don't have the eloquence to write a nice spiel. Like Big Mac, I'm a simple fella. :eeyup:

Honestly, this fic was fucking great. You portrayed both the emotions and the accents perfectly.


But, I feel obligated to post this:

Heh heh.

I will see your Ghostbusters and raise you a trip to Tartarus Visitor Centre:

Thank you for sharing this story!

You know, it's weird seeing a portrayal of Bright Mac that isn't a perfect saint. He was just a pony with flaws like everyone else. It feels like you focused more on his negative traits than his positive traits, but it was all to make Big Mac feel better about himself, so I guess it all worked out. And even if Bright Mac were the world's best dad, he would have made the most parenting mistakes with Big Mac. It's the curse of the firstborn to be the guinea pig.

I'm not sure what changeling situation AJ and her friends had to deal with. Was it something from one of the leaked episodes or one of the comics?

Anyway, thank you for writing "coat" - it annoys me when authors write about ponies having "fur."

Ah, a more serious story for a change. It's good, a nice little one shot, thanks for this. Any plans for more like this? Any plans for Grand-père pear?

This was beautiful. Amazing. Would have liked to see Pear Butter but that's just a nitpick.

Nice atmospheric story. It might need more cow bell but pretty much everything does.
