Twilight Sparkle, youngest arch-mage and technomancy prodigy of Canterlot finally desires something more than research. Unfortunately, love, friendship and other ponies are too chaotic and unpredictable for the mare, with too many variables for her to take into account to optimally navigate.

It didn't take her long to realize that she needn't navigate the raging rapids of love, when she could bypass it altogether and simply design and build her own perfect mare!

Thus, the C.E.L.E.S.T.I.A project was born.

This is some good stuff so far keep up the good work mate!

Interesting! Keep going!

An interesting start, looking forward to where you take this.

Yes. You may take all of my yes. They're hereby yours to do with as you please.

On a more serious note, I thought I was charmed when I stumbled across the time travel, double-princess dating story. I may not have been wrong, or I may have, but I'm certainly charmed now. Have my follow.

First you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention :ajsmug:

Heh, you had us fooled. To introduce a quick twist in so early was a happy surprise, but to let it burn so slowly caught me off guard. I'm looking forward to the chemistry between those two, even though one of them has arms... Why does Celestia have robot arms?

Have a delicious fave:twilightsmile:

She's bipedal! :D

Maybe Twilight likes that ;)
And thanks for the fave. Chapter 2 is being edited.

Reduce council's workload.

Um...

9962930
Having gotten to actually finish the chapter
Well, I meaaan, she's evidently self-improving already, so casual world-domination for the sake of achieving the goals set by her creator isn't that farfectched :rainbowlaugh:

9962975
It's not world domination, it's mandatory love.

9963026
Lol this comment chain reminds me of friendship is optimal.

I don't particularly enjoy the thought of people/ponies being "converted" or whatever, forcefully. Even if they want to, it's still forced conversion if everyone/thing they know has been changed and they cannot function/live in a society that's been changed.

Thus, having C.E.L.E.S.T.I.A be loving and compassionate. Though, she's not interested in world 'domination', tbqh. She just wants to see Twilight happy.

Woo another chapter.

Might as well give her arms I guess. No reason to let your creation be limited by anything other than efficiency , practicality and budgets.
...then again , I would be the kind of guy to create unholy abominations in order to have the best possible mechanical girlfriend :
... like also give her a tail and a mane made of mechanical tendrils , because several more prehensile limbs are usefull.
...and more optics because having only 2 eyes is pointless limitations.
...and claws to allow for greater traction and mobility
...and put the "brain" in the flanks , because no one would expect her to think with her ass , allowing greater protection against malicious people. :trollestia:

I like all of them, hehe. Celestia was made for Twilight's enjoyment, so she might even get some junk ;)

Though, it's only a teen, so...

My curiosity has been piqued! I'll be keeping an eye on this. I do oh so enjoy the concept!

Yay update! And boy do I wish I could just save things I see as literal JPGs for whenever I need them. Lucky Celestibot XP

I will read this if for no other reason then you found an acronym for Celestia.

Oh yea, I'm digging this. Can't wait for the next chapter.

Oh snap, what a mystery. Also poor Twilight, and by extension Celestia

Not death, probably an unauthorized restart, possibly due to a program error.

9976446
oh no, there are hints that the golem is just a new body for Tia. After all the iron doors in Twilly's home near a mural of Tia's cutiemark and this:

Celestia is adapting extremely well to the transition. Emotional levels are holding, and her programming is primarily drifting her personality towards a lover, or motherly archetype,

are the big hints that implies that somehow Tia's soul was transferred to her current body after something happened to her living body

9976460
I thought it was because she was twilights imaginary friend.

9976472
no, she even said she bonded a soul to the golem body in the second chapter here's a bit more to show what i mean taken directly from the story:

Twilight grinned up at Celestia. "You have this research to thank for your ability to think. Without it, you would be a simple golem. Though, the spells I used to bind your consciousness to the processor were a little tricky considering that the charge of a soul cannot..."

Twilight's voice trailed off as a change was ordered to her Operation Pipeline:

2. Evaluate required processing capabilities
2. Improve Thaumic Processor

"... plus, most leading researchers cannot agree on whether a soul bound to a Thaumic Processor would even have free will, considering they would most likely be reacting appropriately to outside stimuli than coming up with their own thoughts and ideas

see that mean's that it was never tried before

I've been waiting to check this one out but now I wish I hadn't waited so long. I'm pretty sure this whole opening is a very specific homage, but I'm glad you didn't stick in a "you're gonna be one bad motherf***er" to complete it. I love the way the story is being told do far, looking forward to catch up on it

she assumed direct control of the server

I hope this Celestia develops lust and desire towards Twilight.

I do wonder if we will see any arguments about “artificial love” since Celastia was built to love Twilight albeit fairly controlled in it(think those creepy mad scientist types that make a bot to be all over them or something)

Sorry to hear rl is getting you down. Just know that no one begrudges you for taking long or even going on hiatus. Handle your business and I'm sure most of us will still be here when you're ready.

Oh hey, awesome. Might need to recap but yay for new chapter:yay:

Una

I forgot how good this story was. I look forward to reading more!

Ooooh~ We're going for this style of story. I very much like!

Thanks for the chapter.

10992100
What style of story do you suppose I'm going for? :)

10992108
It's... difficult to put into words, but I'm at least fairly certain I know some possible paths you intend to take one future character. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how you tell the story though ^^ When it comes to artificial characters cutting their own strings there's so many different paths story writers can take :3

The way you describe networks though, and how there seems to be a brief conflict within Celestia over what's best for Twilight. And Celestia wanting to bring love to more ponies hints at a very interesting branch of paths.


Watching different writers create their own twists and turns of story branches is incredibly fun to experience, I'm very much looking forward to seeing the story unfold with your style ^^

Celestia: The machmaking AI.

That took a hilariously short amount of time for her to manage that. I mean, it wasn't wrong or odd, just smh Twilight. It didn't even take your robot a week to yet your safeguards, what kind of show are you running here?

10992547
Honestly, the safeguards are more designed for a non-self-aware AI, or one that is just beginning to rebel. Twilight would have probably shackled it with stronger chains if she knew for certain Celestia would be a true AI instantly, though chances are she didn't want to influence the decisions made past "be mine".

Besides, they've not encountered a true AI before, so most things are theories on what it could do. ^^

I hear Cadance yelling in the distance.

"THAT'S MY SHTICK!"
