[NOW RETIRED FROM WRITING] I'm a Scotsman who likes to write stories, not all of which are of the self-insert variety.

When Twilight's friends discover she has been overheard talking to an Earl, they come to the conclusion that she has a secret coltfriend.

But is that really the case?

Not what I expected.

Of course not, stories like this always come with a twist.

Still, a teapot. Sounds more Celestia-ish to me. :derpytongue2:

"Aw, hell no ." Rainbow Dash's pupils shrunk to pinpricks. "I'm not listening to another moment of this nonsense! Come on, everypony, we're going in there before we hear something we'd rather not!"

It's usually better to go away and not in, Rainbow, or else you might have to deal with worse than hearing. :moustache:

Fifty Slurps of Grey?

Tea.

Earl Grey.

Hot. :raritywink::trollestia:

Goddammit I feel stupid for not thinking about it until half the story was past.

Still, it was horrible and you should feel bad for it. Have a like :derpytongue2:

EARL FUCKING GREY! GODDAMMIT!

Well, that just means it fits Celestia's most faithful student to a... tea.

That poor teapot. All he wanted to do was live without ponies talking behind his back.

The one and only comment I see before I open the story.

Wow.

Also, your use of "pressurize" is incorrect - when it come to social situations, it's always "pressure", unless you're making a joke there :x

Thanks for that; fixed it now.

:rainbowlaugh: Perfect ending. You got me, I was wondering what on earth the twist here was gonna be!

I don't drink tea so I know next to nothing about it, I completely forgot about Earl Gray XD

not a book

God damn you man.

Obvious from the get-go, but well-executed nonetheless. 👍

1,000,000,000 bits says Spike will hook up with the CMC before any of the six have a date.

It's a damn play on words.

Well played Geo, well played

Heh, wordplay. I’m different from most other people I’ve seen in the fact that I enjoy most puns and dad jokes without cringing at all, even though I’m quite sensitive and cringe at a lot of things.

An upvote for correctly spelling Grey as in Earl Grey.

EDIT:
Also, I wonder if Disqord has a part in Twilight's introduction to Earl Grey tea.

TEA GREY HOT!

Unless someone is implying a connection to John deLancie's Star Trek character of Q.

In which case it is often spelled 'Disqord'.

As for why - the Star Trek captain is renowned for his love of Earl Grey tea.
Q has a reputation for 'annoying' the poor captain from time to time, as he is Star Trek's own 'Lord of Chaos'.
Perhaps Disqord thought it would be fun to introduce somepony to Earl Grey tea, maybe as a private joke only he would understand ?

It is a fun connection. Many fanfics build a premise on Discord and Q being the same entity and I've read a couple where Discord takes Fluttershy to the USS Enterprise for a visit.

Earl of Millennium Dorian Grey... :pinkiecrazy:

This. This was a fun little read, I have to say.

For some reason... I kept expecting the earl to be a sandwich.

Honestly, I was expecting it to be a sandwich.

About half way through I just go: "Tea, Earl Gray, Hot."


The joke just doesn't work when it's that telegraphed and obvious a misdirect attempt.

This was exactly what I expected.

It's actually exactly what I expected.

In love with an Earl + Comedy = Earl Grey.

...Yeah. Earl Grey Tea.
:pinkiegasp:
UNLESS SHE TURNED EARL GRAY INTO TEA TO EEP US FROM FINDING OU!!
:facehoof:
Pinkie...Just no...

Have a thumbs up though for the cheesiness.

:pinkiegasp: TWILIGHT HOW COULD YOU! YOU BOILED HIM AND DRANK HIS ESSENCE !
:facehoof:

:duck: come Spikey I feel cheated :moustache:

:rainbowlaugh: Twi needs a bigger pot!

:flutterrage: GINSING! NOW

Funny story! :rainbowlaugh:

I knew it was gonna be some stupid twist. I figured book or food, but I suppose tea, earl grey, hot makes sense.
