I'm a Proud ABDL mommy. Writer of padded pony fics, a lot of fics about Shining Armor and his mom, several about Rainbow Dash and her family, and far more mom stories than you can imagine.



After being told off by their children, Stellar Flare and Firelight discuss some hard truths and revelations from that conversation over tea together, and support one another through it.

Title inspired by the song of the same name by Lizzo.

Not Romance.

Warning: Slight mention of death.

Yeah, the feels are definitely strong with this one.

Very well Made, shows the struggle parents can have. Frankly, i always wondered What about sunburst's Father and starlight's Mother.

Truth Hurts, that one song I know about but am not the biggest fan of.

But this is a really cool story, and I enjoyed it.

Nice story, very relatable, if not in the parenthood sense, then as hindsight and regrets.

“Do you think they’ll ever understand them?” It was a good question, and she both wanted and was afraid of the answer.

Quick check, them or us?

Them- as in the mistakes Stellar and Firelight made in trying to do the best they could for their kids.

Ah, that makes sense.

I really, REALLY love your telling of Steller Flare and Fire Light. You capture what, I believe, is a true representation of both parents, their situations, and how parenting is far from ever being easy.

I was reading an article recently that talked about "Transition Items". These are items that babies grow close to when their mother starts to give them more time to themselves. These can range from blankets, to teddy bears, to even diapers. The common thread is the infant holds on to that particular item as something to remind them of what their mother did to show love. It's a child's first coping mechanism for not being the full center-of-the-world from the parent.

Your introduction of Sunburst's blanket and how he now wears a similar cloak hit this nail right on the head. Sunburst may not ever realize it but the attire he wears likely became quite relevant when he went away to Celestia's School For Gifted unicorns. He missed his mom, he was stressed out over how he wasn't living up to the expectations, and he needed something to comfort him. So, instead of getting a 'blankie', he found an outfit that helped him feel better. The outfit called to him in a way he could not ever fully understand but, deep down, it was his wishing to feel as he did when he was with his mom and everything was right in his world.

The remark on them not understanding until they have foals of their own is also very true. I have a 12 year old who is going through quite a lot in Middle school. It doesn't help that his dad recently had to leave work due to PTSD and a series of panic attacks. It also doesn't help his mom left him to be with another individual and has no intention on ever living under the same space ever again.

Our son is in therapy to help with this but I wonder if, in some way, he, too, will come to acquire a 'transition item' to help him calm down when his anxiety is at its worst?

Overall, I like how this story fills in the little gap when we were focused on Starlight and sunburst instead of with fire Light and Steller Flare.

Thank you, F.D.R., for this story. I loved how you made this fit into "The Parent Map' episode so seamlessly. Clap! clap! Clap! Wonderful job! This one hits close to the heart and enjoyed the introspection of both Firelight Glimmer and Stellar Flare. Looking forward to your next story posting!:twilightblush:

Right in the feels. Believe it or not, the fates you mentioned for Sunspot and Starlight's mom are along the lines of what I thought for them too.
