Starlight is the best pony... Wanna join my discord? Do you have a commission request?

T

This story starts just before season one

In the blink of an eye, the whole world collapsed in on me. Well, it didn't necessarily collapse. It's different though. Very different. Frighteningly different. I knew that God had a plan for me, I just didn't think it would involve being a pony.

New chapters twice a month.

Seems good can't wait to read more.

Short, perhaps too short. But I wanna give it a try.

Ok, I'll give this a try.

Yes, definitely *not* okay.

Pretty nice so far, I'll follow this to see where it goes :)

This could be interesting. Show us what you got.

She continued to stare at me with eyes that clearly didn’t believe what her ears heard. “Uh, I think we should find a grown-up. You’re definitely not okay.”

Could be intresting, but I doubt that Scoots was already obsesed with getting her CM, even before the return of our beloved Princess of the night.

It's fascinating (and nice) to see a christian perspective on this topic. I wonder if there are going to be any theological incongruities however; one such being that if you stop being human the laws in the Bible don't apply to you. (aka murder, adultery) God didn't have the animals adhere to the Ten Commandments, only humans. And then there is the kicker: Jesus didn't come to save animals, he came to save humanity. If you are not human Jesus did not die on the cross for your sins; there is no intersession for any other creature beyond humans, not even angels.

It's not going to bother me to read this and you don't need to get into it if you don't want, but for me I'd never want to lose my humanity even though I personally really like this genre and I am interested to see how this plays out. Here's hoping for weekly updates plz.:pinkiehappy:

Ah, I was just thinking that everypony would be obsessed with getting their cutie mark

10311282
Yes, I do want to get into all of that (and hopefully will)

10311283
True, but not as obsessed like those three.
So how many barrels of treesap will be used in your story, because i already see him joining the CMC.

10311290
That's a very good question that will have a very good answer : )

I wonder how he will react if he has a dream in what he belives to be a dream and Luna shows up.

Ooo, I wonder... I don't know. This story is already great and shows astounding promise. I can't wait for the next chapter!

Very interesting. In my experience, no one from a dream tells you their name, so I would know if it was a dream lol.

this is before season one so no Luna, at least not yet.

So the CMC are stupid. No doubts about it, they're just stupid. They find someone who isn't from there and isn't in a good state at all, and they go from "Let's get an adult to help" to "You don't have a cutie mark so instead of getting you help we're going to force you to come to our school so we can teach you." Whatever happened to getting help? They've basically abducted a foal new to town that has lost its parents.

Also, please don't let this go the route of her denying their origins and lying about themselves to prevent anyone from ever helping them, trapping them as q foal forever.

Cognitive dissonance level three, any further and the snap could be unpredictable and dangerous!
It's interesting the Cheerilee is just trotting with it, but really, what could she do? Can't leave the foals to themselves for who knows how long it will take to find somepony who could better take care of the situation...
Keep going! ;)

10319586
She's like, seven years old, what do you expect?

10322239
So you're saying she should act entirely like the pony she has been turned into, and not at all like the human she was before? If that were the case it wouldn't be a human in equestria story, it would jjlust be a foal that spontaneously came into existence without any past whatsoever.

10322734
Uh, we are talking about Scootaloo, aren't we? What are you going on about?

10322760
You mean Scootaloo? Well that's actually kinda hilarious, I thought you mean the protagonist. Funny, that.

10322932
Sorry for playing the pronoun game when there were multiple possible "she" characters. :unsuresweetie:

In my experience, dreams are never that specific. And even if they can be, they typically don't have names given out for strangers. They also don't switch perspectives to other creatures that "don't exist". :pinkiesmile:

10324548
Hmmm... I guess you could say those things are true...

It's almost as though somepony is in denial

God, you say?

Sorry, not sorry. :trollestia:

awesome, want more!

He's feeling the cognitive dissonance pressure! Soon enough it's going to flow over and the more he waits the faster it will be!
Poor Cheerilee, having to trust that the foals won't just run off. They haven't so far, but one spook and... well, they're so well behaved, normally!
Scoots is playing fastball, watch those pitches fly at our poor totally-a-dreamer!
Keep going! ;)

“Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle,” I heard the teacher interrupt them. “Is what you’re whispering about anything you’d like to share with the whole class?”

I think that's a warning.

It felt like a couple of hours had passed since the class started before Miss Cheerilee ended the lesson. “Alright my little ponies,” she said,

HA! She said it! :rainbowlaugh:

Before I could say anything though, we were interrupted by a mean sounding voice. “Why are you two talking to the new girl?” another girl’s voice asked condescendingly. I turned and saw not one, but two girls marching up to me. One of them had a silver coat like mine and light grey hair with glasses, along with a necklace of pearls. The other one had a pink coat and hair that was purple and white, with a tiara worn on top of her head. They both sent a look my way that suggested they didn’t like me

Well. If it ain't Diamond Troll and Silver Spite. :ajbemused:

By now, a few other students had come over and started to listen in curiously on what I told them. It once again brought back my unease, and that sneaking suspicion that this wasn’t a dream tried to work itself upon me again. I started to feel a bit nauseous from the conversation, despite being okay just a few seconds ago. I didn't know what it was, but, for some reason, I didn't like the direction this conversation was headed in.

That's suspicion and fear you're feeling.

Dun dun dun, it gets more complicated~

Oh now he's willfully trying to pretend. Eminent breakdown alert!
This coupled with the apparent situation that certain child-like features are in effect. But time definitely feels longer when you're stressed...
Keep going! ;)

The thought of being an animal was extremely scary

You've always been an animal, you dunce... :facehoof:

Don't mind me, I make this comment anytime someone says something to this extent. Cause I'm a smart alec.

The pacing works just fine, keep it there. Quite often authors move too slow or too fast.
I also enjoyed the Scootaloo problem foreshadowing.

10334428
I was going to say the same thing. I've always found it kinda funny and kinda sad that so many people don't realize humans are animals.

10334573
Well, the protagonist seems to be religious and I think Bible's allude to humans not being animals or something? I dunno, I'm not an expert on that subject. :moustache:

10334573
Sure, but we're a unique type of animal that puts us in a different category. The scary realization isn't that he's an animal, but that he's in the body of what would normally be something that doesn't have a consciousness. That's the scary part.

I decided to ignore the implication of her words, knowing it would just make me nervous for no reason, especially considering this wasn’t real . Instead, I watched as she went back to the front of the class, turning and facing us to say, “We’ll keep our lesson easy and just have a writing prompt for today.”

I swallowed and said, “You won’t be able to because this is just a dream. This isn’t real, so...”

To quote a certain character from Cool World,

"We may not be real to you as of yet. But we will be~!"

“Of course, it could just be that she’s not feeling well,” Cheelilee thought to herself. “She does seem a little sick. Besides, you remember what you thought about Scootaloo, right? You’re probably overreacting. You’re just concerned because she’s new.”

I like that Cheerilee is trying her hardest to give Asher the benefit of the doubt, despite all of the disadvantages she seems to have.

No, the pacing is just fine. I really like the way you go into details and I am currious how they will react now.:twilightsmile:

Aaaaand, things get more complicated~

I like your writing. I still can't seem to feel sorry for Asher. Are we supposed to feel sorry for him?

Also, I agree, Starlight is best pony.

10352390
No, I'm not writing Asher to be somepony who should be felt sorry for (at least, not right now)

I'm still enjoying this. Though it sort of feels like chapters were split up.
