This story is a sequel to The Third Wheel


Double Time is a changeling. Years ago, she fought the Crystal Empire in the war in the north. Now she's Cadence's prisoner.

Together, they'll learn something new about life, and rulership, and what it means to love.

There's always time for Double Time!

Damnit, D.

~Skeeter The Lurker

“You know Equestria doesn’t have the death penalty, right?” Cadence asked. “The Crystal Empire doesn’t either.”

They do, however, have a most fully stocked dungeon with restraints and quite a few feathers, if you're into that...

Ooh, we're starting again!

a giant bug told them too.”

too->to

She shited to look Cadence in the eye.

This seems wrong, but I don't know what it's trying to say. "Shited" seems like the wrong word here.

Not as much of a hook as the start of the last one, but I eagerly await more.

Can we get an eta on future chapters?

Loving this so far, by the way.

Definitely "Shifted"

Do you need to read #1 to read this?

Oh hey, I was just wondering what would happen with the changeling. Cool!

9352195

Nope! But #1 is also good.

"“I know.” Double Time said"
"“I know,” Double Time said"?

"hurting other ponies don’t make you feel"
"hurting other ponies doesn't make you feel"?

Fiddling around with skalvadkt, I get something like... "must be bitten" or "must guard"? Is that something like what you meant?
(Granted, I'm aware that there might not be that sort of bonus meaning there... but then again, there might, so I thought I'd check. :))

Looks good so far. :)

(By the way, did you see my comment on the latest Fifty Shades of Neigh chapter?)

Here's something I was waiting for.

If I recall, Amaryllis’ hives’s change had rather less to do with Starlight and rather more to do with Shining Armor.

I hope Light Step and Double Time can meet up and make up in this, at least a little. I’m not expecting them to get back together (though I’m a romantic so I do hope for it), but at least I hope that they can leave things off better than before.

Oh, shit, a sequel! This made my day!

IIRC, Shining's method of reconciliation probably had something to do with the grub with his coloration that Cadance is playing with in the scene with the Queen. It'll be interesting to see how Cadance thinks about Flurry Heart's half-siblings.

This intro is making me stressed, still excited for more though.

Just finished the first story...cant wait for this one!

Eeeeeeeeeee sequel!

I would like to think that my initial gentle prodding had something to do with this. I'd also like to think that my prereading suggestions helped with the editing process. But there are also some marvelous changes here from the first draft that I had nothing to do with, and it was good to begin with. I'm very much looking forward to the rest!

Later, Double Time got her own kids TV show, where she taught them valuable changeling friendship lessons.

"If another foal is bullying you, try to make friends with them! If they keep bullying you, they've proven that violence is the only thing they respect. Let's learn how to make a poison dart!"

9352013

It's "Shifted." >_>

9352038

As soon as I finish writing them!

Hopefully about one a week. ^_^

It's a slight mispronunciation of [Carapace/Shell] [Guard] in Sweedish. Since changelings have those tough exoskeletons, it felt right.

(By the way, did you see my comment on the latest Fifty Shades of Neigh chapter?)

Aaagh yes I did I'm just the worst human need to go reply.

Don't worry. It's okay. Cadence is totally cool with Shining sleeping with a changeling queen now and again.

I mean, Amaryllis even offered to turn into a stallion and sleep with Cadence so everything is fair!

Also Cadence would never murder a child no matter how angry she got so that helps those grubs.

9352953

That is like the perfect summary of all of my writing.

9353976
Ah, thanks!

Heh, don't worry about it. But thanks. :)

9353962

Zero to sixty in a paragraph. That's gotta be a record.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Now she's Cadence's prisoner.

She's serving... Double Time.

When Cadence learns of all of the duties from which she'd pulled Double...

Oh, I do not envy her in the least. Abd that's before taking Double's talent for making ponies see the parts of themselves they'd rather ignore into account. Assuming, of course, that the two are going to interact to an appreciable degree, but I don't see why they wouldn't. (Well, unless Cadence is calling her younger sister-in-law up to the Empire for a surprise...) Eagerly looking forward to more.

When Cadence learns of all of the duties from which she'd pulled Double...

It's fine. Those foals are fine. Probably.

Let there be moar.

I am wondering, since Double Time is an odd sounding name for bug, did Double Time name herself? She's identified by a code first, so was part of the reformation that she got to select, or was given, a name?

And if so, are her nearest "siblings" Overtime, Shift Differential, and Paid Leave? Because fuck that Paid Leave asshole.

How very...timely of you:

Double Time followed them home, to a house that was clean and beautiful and dead inside, and she applied for a job as nanny.

Chim-chimeree, chim-chimeree, chim-chim cheree,
A Changeling thinks first of your u-til-i-ty
Chim-chimeree, chim-chimeree, chim-chim cheroo
She makes you love her, and then she feeds on you--
Or love someone else, and that feeds her too!

Now I want to see that Changeling Poppins story. That Chrysalis Poppins story.

When writing this section, I was so tempted to have her tell Night Watch to shut his mouth. We are not a codfish.

Will Light Step be apart of this story? Either way great start! :twilightsmile:

9355599

Yes, but not one of the main characters.

9355599

Glad you liked it!

A bug is fine too.

9355766

She's adorable.

Inhaled the first Double Time story, going to inhale this one too.

Okay, I'm hooked. Didn't read the first one, so now I'm going back for that.

Uhhh we're focusing on Double Time. DOUBLE YES!!!

9351861
Haha! The Time has been Doubled!
No Luna emoticon? I must put a :twilightangry2: instead of a cheering Luna which doesn't exist among the various emoticons available.

9355184

It's been done.


"Do they say 'please?' "
"In...what context?"
