Irrespective


If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.

This story is a sequel to Principal Noses and Ancient Roses


Baked Bean, fresh off his victory over the sirens at Canterlot High, is now eagerly preparing for the arrival of his first child with his beloved Princess Celestia while still attempting to perform his royal duties.

But old foes still lurk in the shadows, and Celestia's pregnancy may offer a few unique challenges as well. It will take everything Baked Bean can give to endure the coming storm...

Or maybe he just needs to provide Celestia with a deep-fried pickle covered in chocolate sauce and smothered in sauerkraut.

Man I haven't even finished the original yet, calm down my jolly good god of noses!

9689594
No way! I shall flood Equestria with noses! Bwa ha ha! :trollestia:

Darnit now I HAVE to finish the other ones... such good.

Chrysalis, it's sad and at the same time you manage to make it hilarious by the peanut gallery commenting on the shrub. I also hope she finds happiness eventually. She's a very confused bug who could use some help.

You're killing me with all these wonderful stories. I'm still eagerly waiting for the harem noses story to continue and now there's this. :rainbowlaugh:

Yay!! The next arc of the series has begun! Let's see how many pregnancy cliches will be covered in this story.

P.S. Oh. So the seeds of Chrysalis's doubt have been planted sooner in this universe.

So how the new Bean cooking in the oven?

Did…Did Luna just invoke "Jus Primae Noctis" ?

and so it continues :D

The seeds of Chrysalis's doubt...

Cheeky.

I just want to applaud this chapter title.

9689724
:trixieshiftleft:...oh, who am I kidding? I thought of that too.:twilightsheepish:

When’s Luna going to nose a pony name Sack Potato?

Remember that joke back in the first story :ajsmug:

“He was going to propose to me,” she silently whispered to herself.

Do I smell a Chrysalis redemption arc?

“I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Bean said with a passionate kiss.

The feels~

9689759
I remember the joke of Bean telling 'maybe you will find someone name Tortilla'. Oh, I will love to see her reaction when that happens to her.

"Hi, my name is Toast Tortilla, and I'm a cuisine enthusiast. Nice to meet you, Princess Luna!"

9689765
Redemption? I doubt it.

If anything, this might end up being a Pokey corruption arc. Now that would be a twist.

It just occurred to me that this title is hilariously prescient, since a) the notorious increase in sense of smell during pregnancy and b) how babies have a dramatic and distinct sleepy/sick/scared/etc smells.

If there are any here who object to this union, step forward now so I can get the smiting out of the way.

:rainbowlaugh: That is the most Luna thing I have ever heard.

Apparently I missed like the entirety of "Principal Noses".

Welp.

Time to binge.

9689842
My money's on at least some form of redemption. It may be a long way off, but I wouldn’t preclude the possibility. A good author can make any concept work, and Irrespective is certainly a good author.

9689677
Yes. Yes she totally did.

Featured! Looking good!

I love the sappiness of this series, even though this one does drift straight towards saccharine at times. This particular installment gets stronger after the initial perspective shift, and the Chrysalis bits stand out as being particularly well done. There are a few passages that read like they need an editorial pass, such as this one: "the opportunity to be wed in the palace gardens was simply too irresistible." A bit of extra attention to address awkward bits like that, and you'll be in good shape.

What an awesome and heartwarming way to start off the next stage of Baked Bean and Princess Celestia's life together. I really loved how Princess Luna officiated the wedding of Bean's cousin.

the cutie remark timelines are going to be interesting....unless of course you pull the rug out from the storyline and somehow have good old bean either intentionly or acidently buck up her plans

But as she surveyed the sizeable crowd that was standing before her, a pleased smile tugged at her lips. If she were to go through that innumerable list and to discard all but the ones that mattered most to her, she would be left with two.

Four actually, I'm pretty sure you want to keep "sister" and "teacher" as well :twilightsmile:

And for one very brief and fleeting moment, Chrysalis imagined that she was the one in the white wedding gown.

My oh my, Chryssie actually has a crush on Pokey :pinkiecrazy:

“Like it’s remembering a love that it lost,” Lentil said softly. “I almost want to say that it wants to be loved, but doesn’t know how.”

Perceptive :moustache:

I really would like to see a crossover where Bean encounters Sundance (from Kudzuhaiku's House of the Rising Sunflower). Two common ponies suddenly thrust into high ranking positions and succeeding in spite of themselves...

9689568
Me neither! I shall have to write more!
9689589
:yay:
9689600
Chrissy definitely needs a therapist. :fluttercry:
9689622
All the more to love, right? :twilightsmile:
9689623
Oh, I'm gonna cram as many cliches in as possible, no worries. :)
9689661
:)
"'Cook at 99 degrees for 11 months or until well done, longer at high altitude.' Hmm. We are on top of a mountain, so maybe I need to be at 102 degrees." :twilightsmile:
9689677
Almost. Celly stopped her. :rainbowlaugh:
9689744
I can be clever on occasion. It's a bit rare, but always fun. :)
9689759
"Didn't I warn you about horribly painful yet delightfully vague?" :rainbowlaugh:
9689765
Sniff sniff The scent is strong. :trollestia:
9689842
Yes it would. :rainbowderp:
9689952
Hee hee. Celly's nose is going to get a workout. :trollestia:

9690687
And in theory, both Luna Celestia…and Bean can invoke that rule if they want?

Oh! Oh! Can Bean legally can do something crazy like for example…"Married Chrysalis to a pillar (an actual pillar) and it will be legal?"

9690687
I wonder if it will be a colt or filly. I hope it's a colt.

9690003
Thanks! :yay:
9690131
Hmm. I'll see what I can do to iron those rough spots out.
But I still fully intend to give you diabeetus with the sweetness of this story. :)
9690132
It was a fun way to include her. I need to have Luna show up more often.
9690165
Oh, you'll see. No spoilers for now. :trixieshiftright:
9690240
Sister for sure, but Celly might be willing to part with teacher. :)
Also: Pokey crush seems to be aptly named. :twilightoops:

9690706

But I still fully intend to give you diabeetus with the sweetness of this story. :)

I wouldn't have it any other way. :twilightsmile:

9690706
I also loved how:
>Wysteria's lovely pregnancy is going along rather nicely (she may end up giving birth before Celestia)
>Trixie entertaining some children
>Celestia and Bean having a lovely dance by themselves

9690687
Who is to say... I need my Potato's to make some French Fries :raritywink:

96909636
It was tortilla, yes.

“I dunno. I kinda like Celestia Bean. Sounds like something I would serve on a Luna Tortilla.”

Luna wrinkled up her nose. “If you just cursed me to be in a relationship with any pony who has ‘tortilla’ as part of their name I am going to hunt you down and make you suffer in horrifically painful but delightfully vague ways.”

But I bet Luna would make the same threat with potatoes, too. :)

9690963
There was two jokes. I made a joke about a Potato in the first story. The other name was someone else

Ouch, the part with Chrysalis struck straight in the feels.

I haven't even read the story, I just read the description and I have one thing to say. Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew :pinkiesick:

Chrysalis was then offered up to the Knights who say Ni and they all agreed that was the saddest shrubbery they've seen in their many years.
Also the old Nunya joke... not so much a classic but saying Mind Yore as a setup for Mind your own business would have been great and would have actually fit the MLP naming styling. The child would be a bard or a poet. XD

So a bit off topic here. But is there any news about the audio-book for No Nose Knows and likely the rest?

9691414
Ah yes. For those who are wondering, Playbitz announced a while ago that he wanted to make an audio play of the first chapter of No Nose, complete with individual voice actors.

The best answer I can give is that he got busy with real life stuff, but still wants to do it. If I hear more, I'll pass it along so you know. :)

9691125
How about actually read before making a comment like that? Pregnancy cravings are a legit thing

9691509
I know pregnancy cravings are a thing, just that description of food just sounds gross. I just said that because I thought it was nasty and I thought the comment would be funny no other thought beyond that. My mother had pregnancy cravings when she was pregnant with me that were bizarre and nasty and we got a kick out of it when she was telling me about them.
