An Intricate Disguise

Selling out has never felt so dirty.


Every year, I write to the princess. I think she's amazing. I want to be just like her.

I wonder if she'll ever reply.

This was very wholesome.

A clean slice of life fic? Who are you and what did you do with An Intricate Disguise?

Well, I can't say I was expecting this but I think I love it.

Welp... that was both depressing and wholesome, I guess that's life.

Wow. I wasn't expecting a picture that good, at least not in the second chapter.

Will their be another one following this

Well, heck. This is much better than I expected it to turn out.

I like this Intricate Disguise better than the clopfic Intricate Disguise.

Question: did you draw these? Or did someone draw them for you? And if it's the latter(it probably is), who was it?

All sourced from Derpibooru. I'll be throwing links in the description shortly.

You know, on the one hand I'd really like to see Celestia meet Anon, but on the other I think it may be better to leave it up to the reader's imagination. Anon's reaction to Celestia seeking her out. Their talk about Anon's past, particularly with her writing to Celestia. I'm a bit torn on it.

This as very emotional story for me to read. Some of the situations were similar to my own when I was younger.

And I really agree with you. Sometimes, just writing out how you feel helps communicate, at least to yourself, how you feel and in some cases what you should do.

I liked that you wrote this at various times in this filly's life, reflecting her tone, feels and level of understanding of her situation and her maturity. It great to see her growing up and coming into her own.

Nicely done, ID!

This was very sweet, and very wholesome.

Now I'm just waiting for their meet-up and Celestia to wear a red wool sweater, and say, at some point, "I like you just the way you are".

me heart, mei soul

Dang, she really improved in her drawing, aaaah.

This is cute, I wonder where it's going, good show

Awww. This had way more substance than expected. Very wholesome.

Muh heart, that art is pretty ; n;

It's adorable and inspiring how much she's improving with her art, I love it

Man, this was definitely something new to read, but you know, I honestly loved it from start to finish, it was short and wholesome, and I like how you did it.

Loved it, Aids, keep it up my dude! :heart:

Is it bad that I want her to actually meet the artist?

Fantastic story. Put a smile on my face. So thanks for that. ^^

I have a terrible feeling this is gonna end in sadness and I am not prepared

Ok good not in sadness
Still in mild tears tho

Absolutely brilliant. Bravo.

... Why do I have a sinking feeling this might go all "Dear Slim, I wrote you but still ain't callin'..."

I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom...

Its been a while since I've had a good cry... Thanks. I needed it.


Surprised that this story lacks a ‘sad’ tag.

Nice read.

Oh god my feels

I know right? Haven’t even read this yet and I’m already getting Stan vibes off of this fic.

Very sweet and sad, and nicely written. I only wish you could have given her character a real name, or taken it away altogether. This story deserves better.

... oh.

Oh that's my heart.


I cried in awe of this.

Well, this is going to get serious real fast.

Ok. This got serious way faster than I was expecting.

You madman! You diabolical demon!! You're trying to murder us with this cuteness overload, aren't you? My heart can't take it, yet I want more.

This was a very serious story.

But I liked it.

I thought the cuteness this story started with would be my undoing but now I'm thinking it's the sadness of this pony in that abusive home that'll get to me. :fluttercry:

And now possible tears of sadness have evolved into tears of happiness for this pony's growth, strength, and perseverance. Such an emotional ride.

Aw, I wanna see Tia meet Anon and give her a great big hug.

This was a beautiful closing touch to the story of the pony, Anon, who looked to Celestia for hope and guidance while trying to survive her (say that cause of cover art) childhood; showing how things can come full circle. Now Anon has unknowingly struck a cord w/ Celestia and she is feeling anxious and hopeful to meet the pony who seems to understand her internal struggles.

I don't know how you were able to pack in so much deep, philosophical content and span the life of a character in so few words but it was quite the experience reading this. You have given me no choice in the matter. I absolutely must, and will, add this to my Favorites library. The last thing I can say is: "Thank you for writing this!"

That ending made me feel so happy for Anon.
