More of an Equestria Enthusiast, but glad to be here.


When Applejack delivers a package to the Kirin Village, Autumn Blaze meets a cardboard box for the first time.

Idea from ROBCakeran53's first PANIC fiction prompt, "A :yay:ing Cardboard Box," from the Quills and Sofa Speedwriting Competition.

A thank you to ROBCakeran53 and Syke Jr for proofreading before publishing.

Now with a sequel by TheDriderPony.

Spanish translation by SPANIARD KIWI.

Dammit, Autumn's way too cute in this. Well done.

...The Kirin are based on... Kirin (or qilin), a creature of Chinese myth. It's a kind of dragon that's often depicted with an oxen, cervine, or equine body. Japanese depictions (where the "kirin" romanization comes from) are typically more cervine, with a backward-curving horn. Wikipedia's got a lot of information on them, and there are probably sources with even more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qilin.

No problem.

So, Autumn Blaze is basically a cat. Good to know.

Kirins gonna cat

I love this story!

Autumn Blaze we hardly knew you.

It was an honor to preread. Best Kirin is adorable.

This story makes me with Autumn Blaze was a recurring character.

Good job.

Delightful stuff. I can alays enjoy a good cutefic, and this most definitely qualifies. Especially when it makes this mich sense. Of course the foremost kirin playwright will see all the potential of cardboard. Thank you for this.

Awww, Autumn... so precious and innocent :twilightsmile:

Kid, cat, or kirin, everyone loves a cardboard box.

That's the pronlem with children and fancy very expensive presents...
- They're more interested with the hox they came in

Loved this a lot :pinkiesmile:

This is so cute, I love it.

Adorable. Cute. Autumn Blaze is adorable. This story is cute.
*gives headpats*

Hey Bill! This one was pretty damn cute. Even at my age, part of me gets just a little bit excited when I see a large cardboard box, and it was adorable to see Best Kirin (who really should've come back one more time in Season 9, let's be honest) show that sort of childlike wonder at something so mundane to AJ and so exotic to her. The icing on the cake was the reveal that Pinkie anticipated that outcome perfectly.

And just for good measure...

"Silly minds thought alike."

Ain't that the truth! :ajbemused:

This was a fun story:pinkiehappy:

So kirins act like cats and love cardboard boxes? I approve of this headcanon.

This was cute.
