Snow Quill

Carrot Cake wasn't too sure about this 'blind date' business, but with his love life staler than weeks old pastry, it couldn't hurt to try, could it? And with the whole point of a blind date being you didn't know the other pony, particularly their past, well, it gave him a better chance at love.

Written for the Quills and Sofas Speedwriting Pride Contest

Thanks so much to everyone in Quills and Sofas who read and left me comments, especially Vis-A-Viscera, wishcometrue, TheLegendaryBillCipher, Dawn (themoontonite), Ruby, and Lofty. I couldn't have done it without all of your help :twilightsmile:

Then where did Pound and Pumpkin come from? :rainbowhuh:

This was a really sweet story! Also good to see more fics about trans stallions. You did a good job writing the Cakes' date and Carrot's nervousness.

Carrot as a trans man, huh? 🤔
Not sure if I can really see it happen in cannon, then again this is fan fiction so you don’t need to worry about that.
Other than with how few male characters their Are, any particular reason you picked this pair to tell your story?

To be brutally honest, it was to ‘explain’ their foals. That and Carrot is definitely more in touch with his feminine side canon wise, it seemed like a likely background for him. (Not that there is anything wrong with dudes being in touch with their feminine side, it was just the thought process I went through)

((With the foals the idea was they got a sperm donor from his side of the family so it still had ‘his blood’. Or, if you want the alternate - Magic))

Thank you! I’m really glad you liked it and I was able to play them off well

This was a really sweet story! Trans Carrot did come as a surprise to me, but it was a good one! :twilightsmile:
Great job!

Yay! Surprises are always better when you like them :pinkiehappy:

This is the cutest Mr. and Mrs. Cake fic ever.

This was great. Brought back memories of my own foray into dating. The ending felt a bit rushed, but it was so sweet it didn't really bother me.

Well, even the showcanon hinted at Carrot not being the sire for his children.

Doesn't mean she cheated on him. It could be that they both really wanted to have a foal together and agreed they needed a little outside help.

aww yay, I’m happy to hear that! This is the first time I’ve ever written them, and honestly they were never on my radar before but I’m glad I pulled it off.

A little quick in how much was covered in so little word count. There were also a couple of proofreading fixes you want to make, like writing 'three' instead of '3' and other easy fixes. I would also suggest rating this teen, since there are some teen-rated lines and subject matters that crop up. As for the rest, I really enjoyed seeing such wholesome, loving fluff between these two. Carrot being FtM makes a lot of sense for those who don't see the twins as biologically his, and is by far the best and healthiest explanation I have seen too. Representation of trans male characters are extremely rare, so I was very pleased to get around to reading this.

Ngl got a little emotional reading the ending I understand his fear far too well.

Adoption, or artificial insemination, or some kind of magic, I mean if Twilight can turn a fruit into a nest of eggs which actually hatches, why couldn't a skilled magic user allow a trans stallion and cis mare to have a biological child? I mean theoretically, it might be something that at some point will be possible for humans too so in a world with magic it seems even more plausible.
