Pharynx is best changeling. CHANGE MY MIND.


When Pharynx continuously has nightmares about his old outcast issues, he comes to face two options: to open up to his brother about his issues, or to continuously let himself crack under the constant pressure, thus letting himself continue to be tormented in his sleep by his inner emotions.

Idea and co-written by Melody Song. It was an honor doing this with you.

An honor to do this with you as well! To quote Spike from Celestial Advice: "We make a great team" (omitting the 'Sparkle' for obvious reasons)

We surely do! Thank you too!

Anytime, my friend! :twilightsmile:

That was amazin'! Cheers to the both of you!

No problem, dearest friend!

Yowie Wowie! This was pretty good! It was interesting and I truly could feel the emotions whenever they were written on the screen. Well and truly Magnifique! While this Changeling caught in an unfortunate circumstance did slightly explode at a private, at least in the long run that moment exposed his problem, leading to Thorax helping a fellow friend.

Indeed! Thanks for reading

Hey, congrats on being featured!

Thanks! I couldn’t have done it alone

Great story! And with how many nights in the last 10-15 years I've kept myself awake with overthinking every little thing (especially mistakes and disappointments), I can totally relate to Pharynx. You've illustrated the ordeal perfectly :twilightblush:

Just one teeny tiny little thing.

Man, that was close… Nice work, Pharynx.

I may be nitpicky here, but this kind of breaks the immersion. Maybe some other word instead of 'man'? Something like 'whoa, that was close', or 'eggshells, that was close', etc., you get the idea? Just a suggestion. It's okay if you don't think it's necessary.

Because the word 'man' refers to a (male) human and Pharynx probably doesn't know of humans/the world on the other side of Twilight's mirror, and even if he did, he probably wouldn't be using a word referring to them to add stress to the rest of the sentence. Now, I don't remember every line from the show verbatim but I'm pretty sure they hardly ever used a phrasing like 'man, this is [something something]' unless it was an oversight, but there was an occasion in which a character used the word 'man' several times and then got asked what the word meant, so if the word exists in Ponish language, it's probably one of those that hardly ever get used and are unknown to most, and therefore wouldn't be likely to make it into common phrases. (Sorry if this doesn't make any sense to you.)
I'm assuming that's what you meant by 'how so?'

Huh. That makes sense.

Sweet story! I am a sucker for good fics involving Thorax and/or Pharynx and you, dear writer, have just made an excellent one.

Thanks. I didn’t do it alone

Well, give my praise to the other(s) involved as well. He/She/They deserve it!

“What?! No! I mean…” Pharynx took a breath, trying to regain his composure. “Well, you’re the one who takes naps with the nymphs, you tell me.”

Thorax blinked, chuckling a bit. “Okay, true,” he admitted.


Cute little story~ c: Glad you guys collabed together on something, collabs are fun.

Heh, thanks! Glad you liked it!

It seems Pharynx was experiencing what the Scandinavians call "The Wolfing Hour", where all your doubts and fear come at you at once.
Not a bad story.


The Wolfing Hour, huh? Never heard of it.

Stephen King mentioned it in on of his non-fiction pieces. He had the same troubled nights when he was just starting out in his career.

10299497 Huh. I heard about the concept on Babylon 5. Definitely fits with this story, and now I see Pharynx as Equestria's equivalent to Susan Ivanova. :pinkiehappy:

"Have you ever heard of the hour of the wolf?"
"My father told me about it. It's the time between 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning. You can't sleep, and all you can see is the troubles and the problems and the ways that your life should've gone but didn't. All you can hear is the sound of your own heart."

-- Ivanova and Lyta, Babylon 5, "The Hour of the Wolf" (S4E1)

I still get those wolfing hours. It's been years since I've even though of Babylon 5, but that's a smart reference you made there. :twilightsmile:

Aww Pharynx He's been dealing with a lot of stress lately ever since they change It made him felt like an outcast And he bottled up his emotions because he doesn't want to show that he's weak but he not and I'm glad that thorax help him get through this this was a good story between two brothers nice job

When I read the title of ‘I see your monsters’, I immediately thought ‘I see your pain’, and clicked the story. Chapter title confirms it. Good song :)

Heh. Kudos to my good friend Melody Song for the idea!
