Love it, but I am wondering is Katie an adult or a kid not admitting to be a kid?

When I wrote this I imagined her to be just old enough to be living alone but not old enough to really know how, or to be doing it well without help. I did imagine a size difference which is unstated, that the pony world as well as the ponies in it are bit larger than her so she comes off as smaller and foal sized.

Thanks for clearing that up :raritywink:

You're welcome I'm glad you enjoyed it

That was a beautiful fic, I really enjoyed it. I'd love it if you added future chapters cause it seems like there's room for more of Katie's story. :raritywink:

Thanks Rushy! that’s very kind of you to say. I’m glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile: I have decided to add another chapter. Not sure when or where it’s going to go but that’s the fun right :rainbowdetermined2:

Thanks for the chapter. Look forward to more.


You’re welcome :heart:

Thanks for the encouragement.

Had no idea this story got updated. :pinkiegasp:
Gonna read as soon as possible!

I’ve been productive :rainbowdetermined2:

What is happening with Katie? Is she just acting like a child on purpose, turning into a child, or being forced to act like a child by some strange Equestrian magic?

My guess is that since she appeared in the world she has been younger and she is now conflicted by this.

I’m going to untangle the knot a bit, as things can get a bit muddled if I don't, it’s a cocktail of 3 elements.

1. Katie’s personal history of a destroyed childhood
2. Cutie mark magic
3. Ambient magic ( harmony) it only looks to be forcing you if you don’t understand how you feel and what you want.

She is not going to physically regress to a child. The size difference has always been there. Nor is she going to lose function, Strawberry reacts to changes in Katie’s behaviour. The behaviour changes are a result of a lot of things trying to make Katie a functional personality within Equestria, and sometimes in order to be a functional personality you have to take a couple steps back before you go forward.

Or at least that is what I think is happening I could be wrong, this story is kind of a runaway thing.

Thank God. This clears up so much.

Thank you for the feedback by the way, I was working my way to this. If I had not heard anything from people reading it might have taken me much longer to get there and it might have become more difficult to follow.

If the main OCs in this story were voiced, what would they sound like?

That's a good question, I haven't really thought about how they would be voiced. But I can tell you what I imagine when I am writing. Strawberry's voice is on the deeper range, not high pitched but low and melodic. She'd be a bit more refined based on the implied education. Rocky is a bit country like, but not to the point of say an applejack, I've tried to convey this in his word choices. I hope that gives an idea. :pinkiehappy:

Good Chapter. Your story is the one I look forward to the most. Can't wait for the next chapter.

Thank you very much for the kind words, I'm glad you are enjoying it :heart:

Thanks for the chapter, short but sweet.
