This story is a sequel to Starlight Repeatedly Teleports into Custard


Starlight Glimmer's teleportation skills have improved to the extent that she can now travel around Equestria without landing in somepony's dessert. Unfortunately, her determination never to face such a fate again, combined with her predilection for using magic as the solution to pretty much any problem, means she's now lying in acute discomfort in Twilight's castle.

A Custardverse story.

Probably a good job it didn't take very much time! :raritywink:

Well, that was a thing that happened.

What happens in custard stays in custard.

I don't get it

If you're expecting a sensible plot here, you have wildly inflated expectations! It's just me being silly. Mango Mousse's name is inspired by a very yellow dessert experienced (and enjoyed) at a ponymeet outing to an all-you-can-eat buffet in Worcester, but really the point is that it's a yellow dessert that isn't actually custard.

I also don’t get it. How did Mango Mousse solve Starlight’s problem?

Why didn’t Twilight simply induce vomiting? Or was the custard going into starlight’s GI tract?

"The one thing that can stop the custard must be yellow too (not mustard)." Mango Mousse is yellow. Very yellow. So she blocks the custard teleports.

Why didn’t Twilight simply induce vomiting?

Wouldn't have helped -- as you touched on, the custard is not going through Starlight's mouth at all. It's being teleported directly into her stomach. Also, tbh, because I didn't want to write about vomiting.

Look, I'm not going to say this is a great story, even by my standards. It's mostly here as an expansion to a bit of stupidity I wrote for a convention a while back and was persuaded to expand above the 1k-word limit. Also so that I could actually say I'd completed a fic in the last year and a half.

"It wouldn't be too bad--" Starlight broke off for another coughing fit, hacking and gagging until she finished and spat out the offender into a pile of similar objects. "As I was saying," said Starlight weakly. "It wouldn't be too bad if the bowls didn't teleport too." She stirred the odd collection of bowls with a hoof, making them clink against each other. "Someday, I really need to return them, if we can find the owners."
