Calibrating aspirations

T

While enjoying a quiet evening at the bar, Bon Bon and Lyra are joined by two new faces. A changeling and a kirin, visiting Ponyville on vacation. The two ponies are happy for the company. After all, changelings are just like ponies, and apart from being all female, kirin are too.

Right?

A nice little slice of life :)

this is such a sweet read, and you explore/explain the gender concepts and constructs in individual species' society's incredibly well! and rainbow's statement in the very end was a massive crackup. thank you for the read! :D

“Of course, I had no idea that the kirin's hidden village lay just beyond.”
“It's not hidden,” Holly retorted. “Just because a place is on the other side of a mountain doesn't make it hidden.”

Maybe it is, but "not in plain sight" enough to keep it "hidden" from most ponies.

“The rest of the story isn't as interesting,” Holly said.
“And perhaps not as appropriate for casual conversation,” Sternite added with a smirk.

I believe the second part. But only the second part...

Lyra took a breath. “I guess that's magic for you,” she said flatly.

That's the default explanation for almost everything weird in Equestria and beyond...
And the worst thing is it actually makes sense.


Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

This was a nice story, and good job with those two OCs. It was an interesting exploration of how gender works with kirins and changelings, and you did a great job making things awkward but still recoverable.

...For the rest of us, we were a collective. Addressing one drone was to address them all, hence the plural.”...

...“It is—was, both. We were not individual. We did not have possessions, we did not have desires, and we did not have identities....

Changelings are Geth confirmed
