I write about cute horses doing cute things. Also known as Ephemeral on /mlp/

I need another chapter, I've been captivated and am very interested to see what happens next.

Good so far. I'd be interested in reading more.

Pretty cute, I'm glad to see this is being continued.

Please. comtinue, This is good sh@*$ and that's all it matterss for now:twilightsmile:

*Reads story description*
*Sees cover art*

If she can fit in his palm, then she's in for a big surprise

A lot of Mares, and apparently stallions are going to be very disappointed. :raritywink:

Oh this is just plain cute, well written, and fun. Can't wait for more!

Press [E] for adorable bat pones :twilightsheepish:

I have been pleased, an you shall gain an Like an attentive watcher

Whoever it was that started the sun hat counterpart, thank you. I find it amusing.

*sigh*

Another addictive story.
I'm going to need rehab at this rate.
So am I going to have to go down a dark alley way for my next dose of bat pone? Can't wait for next chapter.

I think this going to be one of my new top favorite stories.

Next chapter:
*Wakes up in unfamiliar bed*
*Notices the scent of Anon on bed*
*Notices Anon's scent on you*

Umbral: "What did I do last night?!"

I am entertained. Jolly good show. Please keep it up.

Glad I saw this on Discord and got interested.

Who else remembers when Xenophilia pioneered this premise and didn’t beat it into the ground because original stories are impossible to come by on this site?

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

I remember Xenophilia just fine. I also have absolutely no problem with this story, though.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Screw you! I read both chapters, clicked the button to see the author and squealed when I realized who was writing this. You are a scoundrel and a crook for making me do that.

I can't wait to see where this goes

Can’t wait to see the next chapter. Good stuff

So this story has a misunderstanding trope(on both parties nonetheless). I'm curious about the following events, you earned another tracker(and, possibly, "favourite" in the future)
P. S.: I'm bad at English.

it was like navigating a maze. They say they aren’t interested but sometimes that’s just a test, except when it’s not, and then you’re a misandrist.

Hah, loved this part

Anyways, in my opinion this has potential, keep on the good work☺

How has no one told him yet that mares find him attractive and discussed how the gender situation works? How long has he been here that he's not noticed and no one's said anything?

So are you the original author of this story? Do you plan to finish it?
Because the original story was made on 4chan over 2 years ago now, and it has since then been abandoned and left unfinished..

Edited: Wait a minute, you're claiming to be Ephemeral, the original author on 4chan who made all those RGRE stories? You're truly back? That's exciting to hear! Didn't expect you to come back after being gone for a while.

Dude, don't advertise your autobiography in the comments, thats spamming.

Oh gods he's completely clueless :rainbowlaugh:
I wonder how much will the doormare and all his pretenders facehoof once they find out he never knew they are hitting on them :rainbowwild:

You pulled the side of your jacket over her and zip it up, only two bat ears and a small fluff of purple hair sticking out of the neckhole.

This is criminally cute, you know? :yay:

I am enjoying this story. The little embarrassed "scree" in chapter one was super cute.
Now she's sleeping like a little baby, still being cute.

This story is coming off like a double RGRE. It takes place in an RGRE setting, but both protagonists don't follow the RGRE roles.
I like it.

Thank you for posting.

Love the story really needed a cute fic to take away from the gore in FoE fics. Thank you

But.....if this is from Umbra's viewpoint why is it second person? And if it's Umbra telling the story, why doesn't the human have a name? It makes no sense for him to be called anonymous.

It's not unreasonable to imagine everyone would assume he already knows. It's such an ingrained aspect of everyday life for them that its woven into their very language. The idea someone not knowing sonething as basic as who buys the drinks is preposterous to someone from the culture. It's much easier to imagine Anon as the hot colt at the bar who will accept drinks from everyone but never go home with anyone.

I wasn't the first to use it. Came about from Anons shitposting about RGRE on 4chan.

9427675
You're not too far off, ha.

9428025
This is one of the most adorable compliments I've read. :rainbowlaugh: Awesome though. I hope to continue doing stuff like this.


9428187
Yes, and your English was fine here.

A future chapter addresses his time spent in Equestria better. I don't remember which one though. Should be a few months or so.

Can someone tell me what is RGRE?
Please.

9428635
reverse gender role equestria. Mares act like men, Stallions act like women.

9428334
I mean I haven't written for RGRE in a year or two but I'm still on the board. I did 'nothing more pure' and 'casual sex' last. This will explain some things for you:

Yeah I'm a big fan of 'misunderstanding' humor. Also ponies in jackets are super cute so I wanted to include it at least once in my writing.

The cute will last forever if I have any say in it.

This story is coming off like a double RGRE. It takes place in an RGRE setting, but both protagonists don't follow the RGRE roles.

Awesome. This is what I was going for and I hope to extrapolate more on.

9428516
Ha, well glad to ease things I guess. Funnily enough I used to write and read mostly dark/gorey adventures years ago. I still like those things since they're incredibly cathartic, but simple cute/romance content tends to make me happy so I stick mostly with that now.

9428536
Interesting points. This has to do with a writing paradigm I don't really control too much on other sites. It was written for a place that has the norm as second person and typically I can see the merits of it and I'm used to it now. Third is better overall if we're being hones here, and I prefer it for the power a third person narration gives me as a writer, but I didn't want to rewrite it all since the prose didn't feel right when I tried. It would also mean I'd have to maintain two versions if I planned to post on /mlp/ and on FImfiction. The workload just isn't worth it.

As for using Anonymous, that's also a story paradigm for the place I wrote this for, but I prefer Anon over named characters anyhow. For me, reading 'James' or 'Cameron' feels pretty cringey, whereas Anon is just a stand in for a human character. It's just a lot more inoffensive conceptually. But if you want, you can always download the story then clt+f 'anon' with whatever name you want. I can't serve every single community's needs but there are options if you don't like some things. If I see enough people wanting named characters, I'll do what LBP does and replace 'Anon' with an obscure name.

This is really adorable. :twilightsmile:

So the “bar-mares” made assumptions, and were dishonest. They played mind-games to get into people's pants. Instead of just sitting down, having a nice conversation, and getting to know someone. And their assumptions made an ass out of them and Anon.

Once, a relative of mine wanted me to go bar-hopping with him. Go out for “a night on the town”, make me “feel like a million bucks”, and “I could even have sex”. It didn't sound very appealing. It sounded like he wanted me to act like those bar-mares.

Author, if I may answer (and please correct me if I'm wrong).

They played mind-games to get into people's pants. Instead of just sitting down, having a nice conversation, and getting to know someone.

Yes.

This is the RGRE (Reversed Gender Roles Equestria) aspect.
Think of the mares (all mares in this universe) as big tough, classic construction worker tropes who cat call and whistle at all the cute stallions. Where stallions enjoy getting their manes styled, cooking, and gossiping. Stallions would be the homemakers and the mares will go off to work, doing the "tough" jobs.
Some people enjoy this trope and looking at how a world like this works, while others can find RGRE offensive.

And their assumptions made an ass out of them and Anon.

No, their assumptions made an ass out of them, not Anon.
Remember, Anon is "not from around here" and doesn't know that the social norm is for the mare to "be the aggressor" in asking one another out.
That's why Anon laughed at their advances, he thought it was funny that these little girl ponies were coming on so strong.

Dear Author, I love you.

No, seriously this is amazing so far. I'm just sad we have to wait for more :pinkiesad2:

I'm familiar with RGRE. Didn't know it had a name, but I understand the concept.

However, the real problem's not that Anon “isn't from around here”. Granted, that didn't help. But the real problem is that those bar-mares live in a world of dishonesty and assumptions.

“No, their assumptions made an ass out of them, not Anon.”

I'm making a play on the saying “'assume' makes an ASS out of U and ME”. Anon is an ass, in the bar-mares' world of dishonesty and assumptions. But it's the bar-mares' fault, for creating that world in the first place. Anon never asked to be part of that world. He never asked the bar-mares to play mind-games with him, instead of just sitting down and talking to him.

And that's what I like about this story so far. It brings a certain sense of "they got what they deserved."
I can't wait for the next chapter!

Normally I don't get involved in inter-commenter conversations but I feel like

Author, if I may answer (and please correct me if I'm wrong).

is sorta asking me to at least throw in some input. So...

Think of the mares (all mares in this universe) as big tough, classic construction worker tropes who cat call and whistle at all the cute stallions.

Yeah that sounds a lot like RGRE, but I personally try to approach my stories where not every single character aligns with their gender roles, and that's a big part of Bad Blood. There's a stallion coming in the next chapter too who sorta bucks the trend, and I feel that's important. People come in all types and that's also true for RGRE (or I like to do it that way).

No, their assumptions made an ass out of them, not Anon.

This is sorta a semantic disagreement. The saying 'making an ass of u and me' is that, a person who's deceived looks like a dumb-ass but the deceiver is an asshole. You're thinking of ass as asshole and Solarfollow is using the classic equivocation, that's all.

Love you too, bb. Next chapter will be up very soon. A huge amount is already prewritten so there's going to be very little waiting.
