Admiral Biscuit


"This was quite well written, and the characters had a very natural feeling back and forth. Shame I didn't like it at all."

This story is a sequel to Cuddles II


There is nothing to compare to the comfort factor of a fluffy unicorn in the wintertime. Pony body temperature is naturally higher than a human's to begin with, and then there was the fur to consider. Cami's winter coat gave her maximum fluff.

In the dog days of summer, though. . . .

Floof.

I think their town will be looking for a new weather manager soon. This seems like a major mistake and unlike the weather person over here who can be wrong 80% or more of the time and keep their job, I doubt ponies will be happy with a heatwave lasting this long.

Oh my sweet Luna that was adorable.

Finally, some good fucking hecking fluff

While my bathroom doesn't have a tub, I do have actual tile floor, and I have slept there before because of the heat, and how cool the tile was.

Adorable, hot ponyfloof.

The progression of escaping the heat is awesome. Pure ponyloaf and heatwave madness: Cute!

awws, adorable once again, i want to hug that floof

I can't recall a multi-week-long string of days in the 90s, ever.

Idly looking at water-circulating cooling blankets on Amazon. Really expensive, but maybe hospitals might have a surplus sale some time?

Those air-circulating cooling blankets are cheaper, but none of them have a window-mount, so any body heat removed just ends up as extra ambient room heat.

Pony problems call for pony solutions.

Thanks for the fluffy story (and fluffy pony).

Admiral Biscuit is a popular enough author that he doesn't have to resort to the clickbait story description of "Hot pony bedtime antics."

Overheated cuddlepone and her human, now in a musical number:

One word: Clippers

I love each of the parts. Short and sweet :twilightsmile:

The fireplace, a source of joy in the wintertime, was purposeless. Unless ponies could somehow invent a fire which sucked up heat . . . that was something to ask Cami when she got home.

Be careful to not let Twilight hear this. She may try to invent something like this, and I don't think we need another ice age.

“Stars, that feels good.” She dropped to her knees and then did an awkward roll in the bathtub, until her belly’s facing the water.
“Who’s a silly pony?”
Cami stuck her tongue out at me, then flung her loofa at me with her magic.

Awww...

“Or a petrification spell—stone gets warm slowly, so maybe. Not sure how much you feel when you’re stoned. I’ve never tried it. I could turn you to stone until the heat wave ends.”
“Boss would be mad if I missed work.”
“Being petrified is a legit excuse, as long as you’ve got a doctor’s or mage’s note.”

Boss: "Why didn't you come to work?!"
Me: "Let's just say I was totally stoned..."


Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

Floofy ponies are best ponies.

Maybe; it would depend on the cause. Maybe Princess Celestia did screw up and put Equestria too close to the sun by mistake. Or maybe the problem came from higher up the weather team’s command chain. Or maybe it’s just one of those things that happens sometimes.

While my bathroom doesn't have a tub, I do have actual tile floor, and I have slept there before because of the heat, and how cool the tile was.

All I got is lino, and not enough floor space, either. Which is a shame, but what are you gonna do?

Back when I was a kid, I used to do the opposite--we were in a house with baseboard heaters, and the one in the bathroom was completely open, so sometimes I’d turn it up and lean against it and read.

The progression of escaping the heat is awesome.

I’ll be honest, it’s hot enough here now that sleeping in the bathtub doesn’t sound unreasonable.

Pure ponyloaf and heatwave madness: Cute!

:heart:

Of course you want to hug the floof; everybody wants to hug the floof. Just gotta come up with a clever solution when it’s hot.

I can't recall a multi-week-long string of days in the 90s, ever.

We usually get a week or two of that in the summer, most every year.

And in the wintertimes, we sometimes get a week with windchill factors in the double-digit negatives.

Idly looking at water-circulating cooling blankets on Amazon. Really expensive, but maybe hospitals might have a surplus sale some time?

I suppose it’s possible. That idea has crossed my mind, get a bunch of aquarium tubing, a small pump, and a decent-sized tank for cold water--or just plumb it into a faucet.

Those air-circulating cooling blankets are cheaper, but none of them have a window-mount, so any body heat removed just ends up as extra ambient room heat.

Yeah, and that’s not something I need. Last night my bedroom was 85. . .

They do!

Thanks for the fluffy story (and fluffy pony).

You’re welcome :heart:

It’s true. Although I’ll admit, I’m kinda sad I didn’t think of that as a short description. :derpytongue2:

Bah, don't worry. It'll only be localized, and after freezing herself she'll perfect it anyway. :moustache:

Legit I’m currently listening to The Association.

But trimmed ponies look silly. Just ask Pinkie Pie.

If she kept it under control, though, a cold fire for the summertime would be pretty awesome.

Awww...

:heart:

Boss: "Why didn't you come to work?!"
Me: "Let's just say I was totally stoned..."

You gotta figure in Equestria, there’s a whole list of excuses for missing work that just wouldn’t apply on Earth. Likewise, medical forms probably have a lot more boxes to fill in (Have you recently been cursed by a vengeful unicorn? Have you or anypony you know come into contact with an ancient magical artifact? ...)

Good story!
I enjoyed reading it.

Thank you! :heart:

Also, I just remembered as I was looking through images that angry Twilight can burst into flames, which might help if she accidentally freezes herself.

Not sure if you've introduced ponyloaf to the vernacular, but the sheer perfection of the word needs to be highlighted anyway.

All the interactions here feel very natural, a planned sort of spontaneous. Were this not a pony story, this could easily be Midwest prairie country in a time either current or long past and still the plotline would work. You have a way with setting up an all-encompassing environment and making the reader shrug off any misgivings. You write engagingly, yet plain enough so anyone can enjoy it. Your one-shots are ace, your longer stories binge-worthy. I always look forward to your next work. Thank you.

I've just remembered that there's this thing called endothermic reaction... The opposite of combustion (fire), which is an exothermic reaction!

Twilight should be able to make something practical out of it! :yay:

So, is this the beginning of a Cuddles cinematic universe? Are we going to be seeing epic levels of summer pony fluff?

I see an Admiral Biscuit story, I click for the warm fuzzies, a bit more literally in this case.
another adorable slice of life story. :heart:

I figured, but in Equestria, they may well have real cowbears!

Personally I just adapted to having an incredibly loud fan aimed at my bed. Hooray white noise.

10318705

endothermic reaction

Reverse-fire!

All they need to do is wad up some bedding and dump it in the water - hey presto, 100% more comfortable bath

I certainly can’t take credit for it; it’s been a tag on Derpibooru for years, and Kudzuhaiku blogged about it back in 2014. It is a perfect word, though.

:heart:
I don’t have a fluffy pony to snuggle (or cat or dog, for that matter), but I do live in the Midwest (-ish; depending on who you ask Michigan is Midwest or Great Lakes). Certainly not prairie country by any means, though. And we are having a heat wave going on; in fact I wrote the story because it was too hot to sleep.

You have a way with setting up an all-encompassing environment and making the reader shrug off any misgivings. You write engagingly, yet plain enough so anyone can enjoy it. Your one-shots are ace, your longer stories binge-worthy. I always look forward to your next work. Thank you.

Oh, thank you so much! :heart:

I've just remembered that there's this thing called endothermic reaction... The opposite of combustion (fire), which is an exothermic reaction!

I looked up quick examples of endothermic reactions, and none of them listed would work in a fireplace. Of course, with magic there are possibilities. As I recall, it’s generally harder to cool things than to heat them (i.e., you can’t build a reverse-microwave), but I could be wrong about that.

I think dry ice is really good at cooling things quickly (as is liquid nitrogen, but that’s harder to get); however, you certainly can’t just put blocks of dry ice in the house to cool it down unless you like suffocating.

Twilight should be able to make something practical out of it! :yay:

She probably could, yeah.

10318761

So, is this the beginning of a Cuddles cinematic universe?

Well, maybe. There’s nothing wrong with a series of stories about cuddling with a cute, fluffy pony.

Are we going to be seeing epic levels of summer pony fluff?

Potentially, yeah.

They very well might. They’ve got star bears and bugbears and lumber bears, so why not cow bears?

EDIT: I think they had owlbears in an episode, too.

10318908

Personally I just adapted to having an incredibly loud fan aimed at my bed. Hooray white noise.

The fan is nice, and the white noise is nice, but when it’s hot enough, there’s only so much a fan can accomplish, unfortunately.

10318965

Reverse-fire!

The biggest problem with a reverse-fire in Equestria would be that it would also suck up light rather than produce it. :rainbowlaugh:

10319137

That’s not an entirely bad idea. Depending on what the bedding was and how quickly it would dry, that’s got potential.
