Not Enough Coffee


"The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts." ~ Marcus Aurelius

T

Anon, somehow, was able to romantically court the princess of the sun herself, Celestia. During one quiet night at Canterlot castle, they decide for the first time to sleep together in the same bed, cuddling up to one another and saying sweet nothings into each other's ears.

There is also talk about themselves, the world around them, and the time they have spent with one another. It was a good night.


An RGRE story inspired by the thoughts I've been having lately, and a cute idea I had for this trending, alternative take on Equestria.

Pre-read by B_25.

Why even put rgre? Equestria is already like that...

Stallions love a good smile, and strong upward appearance.

“Then go right in. Stallions first.” She opened the large double door entrance for him, letting him see for the first time his marefriend’s living quarters. “So, what do you think?”

Their was the occasional guard however, she gave Celestia a salute, with a wink thrown in for good measure.

Actions and phrases like this. These are usual actions or thoughts of guys, but instead done by mares, plus Celestia is a slightly more assertive than the show counterpart. I wasn't aiming to be in your face about the reversed gender roles, and instead wanted to make it more subtle. I may have succeeded, but there's a large chance I didn't. I'll try harder in the next one.

Good story! But...

Patting a wing down on top of it as a gesture for him to take a sit, one he took with gusto.

Take a SEAT

Short and sweet. Personally I'd like to see something more meaty, but it's cool to see you getting your feet wet with RGRE.

It was a nice distraction from my more personal, and heavy blogs. I wanted to write something sweet, and if you're looking for meaty, I've just started outlining this story that I've had on the back burner for ages. Outline for the prologue is over a thousand words alone, and I'm moving onto the next right now. I can hopefully capture my vision, but it ain't RGRE related, so it's different.

I do have this other idea in this universe, which would actually be of decent length. I'll get to that when I do.

What the heck does RGRE mean anyhow?

Reverse Gender Roles Equestria, and as my friend An Intricate Disguise said to me on Discord, "It is CRACK!"

Thank you. I could not figure it out and I was a little afraid to ask.

holy sass am i grateful RGRE is taking off lately. i dig this a lot.

9410528
That was most definitely a very cute short story. There were a few errors here and there, mostly extra quotations or spelling mistakes and typos.

I look forward to reading more from you.

“In the back corner of the room lied the largest bed Anon ever seen, adorned with overly comfortable looking pillows and blankets. If his body could drool, it would. Off to the sides were a furnace to keep warm during the cold nights of the year, a dresser full of whatever Celestia might need to store, and on the real far side of the room was a personal restroom.

I see you random “. You thought you could hide.

This is a really sweet story. It’s actually not everyday one can find a well-played Human X Celestia story, particularly because there aren’t very many like this. There are a lot of grammatical corrections that need to be made, but, at the moment, it would take a large list to point them out.

I’m so glad to have found and read it. I think Celestia definitely deserves to have her own romance stories with a human.

By the way, what is a “janefilly”?

A Janefilly is basically a tomboy equivalent in RGRE Equestria. As for the edits, if you want, you can point them out, I'm more than willing to see to them all. Thing is, I didn't really edit this, along with my pre-reader, who more so read over it to give an opinion on the piece as a whole. As such, it is weaker than my other stories in terms of grammar. I hadn't written anything in such a long time, so getting this one-shot out in a day was a priority, alongside moving on to the next project. I always got to keep moving on to the next.

It started off somewhat interesting. The pillow talk killed it though.

That was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for creating and sharing. :heart:

“You know, I miss heaters. You guys need to get onto inventing those.”

So where do you think Equestria is from a technological standpoint?

9408967
Isn't it true that Lauren Faust is a feminist, just out of curiosity?

9498763
That's not the easiest question to answer. For one, with their magical know how, they could very well have some pharmaceutical and technological advancements ahead of ours, but that explicitly is a head canon. I'd wager if they were to jump the show a few hundred years in the future, and bumped up the progress of their society, I'd imagine they'd be both advanced and primitive by our standards.

It's like the world of Fallout. They have robots and power armor, but their cars and computers are bulky because they never invented the transmitter that allowed the miniaturization of our tech, and thus are both advanced and primitive by our standards, much like how I imagine Equestria would turn out given enough time.

9498891
Wiki says she considiers herself a lifelong feminist, but idk if shes the insane kind or the rational kind

9498892
So is Fallout set in the 1980's-90's or something?

9499364
Depends on the game. 2076 or 2077 was the year the bombs dropped, but the games themselves take place anywhere from 80 to 200 years after. The technology stays roughly the same, though.

It was cute. I like cute :twilightsmile:

How is it we're in the final season and this site still lacks a cuddle/snuggle tag?

This is so sweet!

Celestia reached her forehooves around the human, wrapping him in a tight, welcomed embrace. “Then come here and let me keep you safe.”

This kills me

I doubt it. In the show the mares largely are shown doing women’s work and things not usually physically intensive and generally involve rear echelon like or traditionally female work. The stallions generally are seen performing physical labor and in the military.

There are few exceptions and those are treated in the show as surprising. Such as Twilight being impressed by Applejack’s strength and Rainbow Dash’s speed. In fact, the exceptions we see are generally shown to be exceptional individuals period.

So would Tomboy in non-RGRE Equestria be Tomgarçon?

9680846
I hope you know that you just said the exact same thing. garçon is literally just “Boy” in French. So in a way, you are correct. Good job.

9748293
And "filly" looks like it comes from "fille", meaning "girl".

Sequel? Actually, I wouldn't mind a wholesome slice-of-life like that. I'm usually up for action and whatnot, but... this is really nice and gentle.

9802264
I don't know, really. I'm focused on writing more for "The Thing We Do For Love," and figuring out something else with some substance to it. By that, I mean something with bigger conflict, adventure, and drama. I don't want to be tied down to little fluff fics, I want to make my mark with something grand.

At least get something off the ground before the series ends, that is. I don't think I've written anything all too impressive, and that fact bothers me. I simply just don't have a proper idea I can run with and expand into something worthwhile. That is, besides everything planned for the story mentioned prior, but that is more so comedy I have fun writing in-between the heavier works. Still have a fondness for it, though.

I'll give it a maybe, but I wouldn't hold me to it.

9802294
Well... I'm not sure if I can really answer any of that, and it came a little unexpectedly, but... there's one thing I can share, as far as creative... well, anything, really, goes - you will often find yourself walking the path, once you stop frantically looking for it.

Good luck with all that!

... and if you happen to want some change of pace, this wouldn't be a bad place to go, I think.


Also... there are those of us who aren't really here because of the series. I think this place will remain. I hope it will, and that it won't lose too much of its steam. Love is funny, that way...

9802310
Yeah. Sorry about that. I was staring at a blank gdoc when I got this notification. I'm in a rut, an enormous one. I want to write, I really do, but the words just don't come out properly. It's like looking in a mirror, and seeing your face, but ever so slightly different it throws you off and makes you upset.

But, yeah. I think this place will be just fine as well, I really just want to get something rolling before the show ends. Plus, this place could integrate into g5, whenever that happens.

9802321

Yeah. Sorry about that. I was staring at a blank gdoc when I got this notification.

Don't apologize, please. This is clearly something that troubles you, and I can't begrudge you sharing that, not really. It was just unexpected - but not unwelcome, especially if it helps at all.

I don't presume to know how creative writing works (I've really done very little of that myself), but if it works anything like writing your own software - my best solutions usually come from two things: when I stop trying too hard and allow my brain time to actually recover some of its creative mass, and when I go and experience new things. Oh, and when I take a step back and rethink the entire thing, trying to think in different ways about it - sort of a "what if" I did something differently than I already have.

Don't know if this helps or not. Still, this isn't something you forget, is it? Maybe creativity is just like any other 'muscle' we have.

9802350
It's welcomed. Thanks.

I've been spending most of my free time reading, gathering the knowledge from that as I go. I must have read 300k words this month so far, to be honest. Both fan fiction from here and novels irl.

9802357
Well, all I can really say is "don't force it", I guess. I know I do my absolute worst, at anything, when I'm under the constant pressure of a deadline (or a perceived deadline, anyway). If I have to do it now, I can't do it. Don't know if that's how it works for you, that's just how it is for me.

And hey - thank you. I appreciate you taking this much time and putting this much effort into entertaining me (among others, of course). These stories brighten up my life, and I'm not even half-kidding. The reason I'm here... I don't like the show, actually - it's too predictable and cringey for me. But these stories... I hadn't realised how much I needed them in my life until I arrived here. So, thank you.

9802366
D'aww, I'm glad to have brightened your day with this story then. That makes me happy. :twilightsmile:

I can understand that sentiment on the show. Some episodes make me die a little on the inside, but then there are others like "Frenemies" that get me all sorts of excited.

9802371

get me all sorts of excited

I can't decide if that came out so very wrong... or so, so very right. ;]

Anyway, I need to get up for work in about 4 hours, so... Thanks for... I'm not sure what, but thanks for it all the same. :-)

I love fluffy cute stuff like this. :heart:

9425380
Tomboy only role reversal.

I liked it! Good work!
