Ocellus was a bookworm. Everycreature at the School of Friendship knows about Ocellus's constant reading habits. It could sometimes be a hassle to get her away from the latest tome she was digesting! But no one would have her any other way.

But when her friends ask her where she became such a bookworm, she's hesitant to say anything about it. Why would she have something to hide about her love of reading? Little by little, her friends uncover what sparked her love of books... and Ocellus may face a long-standing problem of her own.

Takes place some time before the Young 6 grew up. Whether this story takes place before or after Twilight's final coronation would not change how the story unfolds, methinks.

Crude coverart done by myself.

Just starting to read, but wanted to commend you on both your pacing and basic dialogue handling. There are very few obtrusive sentences jutting out, and we haven't read a story that was this easy to digest in a while. If this is your usual clip, it looks like you could be putting out a lot of great stories. :pinkiesmile:

This was absolutely wonderful. Some of the nicest, cleanest, modernist storytelling I've seen in a while. Great read. Have a follow! :3 The only thing we noticed is you may want to ctrl+f an asterisk (*) and replace with italics markup instead, it seemed like there were one or two points where editing missed it.

Firstly, I am very glad that you are enjoying it so far! I'm glad it came out as smooth as it did (it wasn't easy for me, lemme tell you). And thank you for pointing out the asterisks. They have been correctly replaced.

It's been so long since I've written, I don't know if this would be my usual output. But, with this sort of encouragement, I think I can continue outputting.

Again, thank you very much!

It a great start to a story I can't wait to read more.

I don't remember how I got here, but I'm glad I did.

I am happy to hear that. I hope to continue the goodwill going forward.

This is a great story I can't wait to read more.

Right on! I'll continue working hard to deliver the content.

Dude, this is so far imo, one of the best Ocellus Stories here.
Please Continue, it just very good

Poor Ocellus. She's gonna break soon, I think.

I did notice a small error, though. During the flashback sequence, Sweet Scroll names her as Ocellus rather than Ladybug at one point.

“There we go,” Sweet Scroll said with the same tone. “Could one of you pass Ocellus a pillow?”

Thank you for pointing that out. It has been fixed.

I hope you are enjoying the story so far.
