With a sigh, Pear Butter unsheathed her katana. "Master, forgive me," she half-whispered to her blade. "But I must go all out. Just this once."

Trans rights is a good thing to say. Good on Elly, Tricie and Starly :3

This is going in the Read Later pile

"Ellie did a quick check, rubbing the tip of her thumb against the nails of her first two fingers. Flat enough."

I'm ashamed of how I never thought of that before, despite how obvious it now seems. Luckily there was never an occasion where someone could suffer from my non-flat nails. :D

10541398
That is the idea, yes! Though I don't quite like that word here since it implies an undifferentiation and a lack of personal connection

Trans rights!~ I skipped the clop -- not my fancy -- but the conversation with Maud and Ellie in the middle was sweet.

10542396
I actually just fixed it and the beginning up a bit to connect them better, really should have made sure that worked before posting but I'm glad you liked it still! That is all the reaction I ever wanted. :raritystarry: The rest of the site can downvote me to karma hell now, don't care!

10543038

No, she corrected herself. There was nothing straight about this

I have had this conversation on more than one occasion as it were (as a trans pony myself and especially close to some non-binary ponies). Ellie is right, though: if you have to ask if something's straight, it isn't :rainbowwild:

“Boulder doesn’t need to hear this,” Maud explained as she got back on the bed.

Excellent Maud characterization. Boulder is precious and innocent and must be protected at all times.

Starlight is gonna get her world... rocked, I can feel it.

She was insensate to anything in the world but her own pleasure. But this time she was also orgasming.

Ellie found this hilarious, if a bit flat in terms of characterization.

:rainbowlaugh: Oh my God, what a perfect set of sentences.

Alright, I'm just gonna say this now, even though there are a couple chapters left to go. I'm really not for these type of fics usually. HiE has been done so many times, especially Human x Pony, and most of those times are bad. The human being a woman is rare, so I usually give it a shot, just for the novelty. Additionally, I am very, very hardcore monogamous. I have nothing against polyamory, or threesomes, or anything like that. It's just not... up my alley. (Pun intended.)

But with all that in mind, I just love how you've written this so far. So much caring and tenderness. The action is great and varied, with correct, realistic anatomy and actions. It's hot and sweet at the same time—my favorite combo. Excellent work. :twilightsmile:

“Every marehood is a geode. You don’t know what you’ll get until you open it, but it is always beautiful.”

Maud knows what she's talking about.

But she did not mind continuing her role of lifter of heavy things that are, naturally, simply too heavy for a delicate high femme to have any business lifting. She enjoyed it just as much here as she had back home.

I'm in this excerpt and I don't like it

“Wait. I just realized that there may have been some pretty major consent issues with what we all did back then…”

This is why I headcanon Starlight as being completely unexperienced by the time of her reformation. I'd like to think she was self-aware enough to know that she shouldn't touch ponies she had completely under her control, but I could be wrong.

“Oh, no. Nononononono, I am not talking about that.”

Yeah, good call on that, Ellie.

It felt like a connection between their two cores of being. Maybe the straights were onto something…

Hmm, maybe Ellie hasn't tribbed much. Or the right way. There's a way to connect that way that's incredibly intimate. :ajsmug:

Damn, I was not expecting some sweet gender affirmation here. That was adorable. :heart: Poor Ellie forgot about both eustrus and the fact that different species cannot reproduce... it all worked out nicely though. :)

Oh shit, there's no more yet? Damn. Added to my faves for when there is more.

10554720
Agreed! Maud is the best rock mom, which if anything makes her even more attractive

10554739

:rainbowlaugh: Oh my God, what a perfect set of sentences.

I am so so glad you appreciated it because that is my favorite line out of all the lines I've ever written, which makes the distance between how much I love it and how little I can show it to anyone I know just unbearably agonizing. Can die happy now!

Alright, I'm just gonna say this now, even though there are a couple chapters left to go. I'm really not for these type of fics usually. HiE has been done so many times, especially Human x Pony, and most of those times are bad. The human being a woman is rare, so I usually give it a shot, just for the novelty.

Yeah, this whole series in general is very particular to me, and the stories like this that I intend to write for it are very, very particular to me, so when I first saw you say you were going to start reading this, a small part of me actually panicked and tried to convince me to pull it before it was too late! Really glad I did not, though. :twilightsheepish:

But yes! I came to this site looking for basically this story and did not find it. What I did find was, as you call it, most of the time bad. So, y'know. When you don't see something being done right, gotta do it yourself.

Additionally, I am very, very hardcore monogamous. I have nothing against polyamory, or threesomes, or anything like that. It's just not... up my alley. (Pun intended.)

Though the fact that I did not go ahead and make this version of Equestria a poly paradise at the same time as I made it good for so many nice things is probably the clearest sign that I'm not poly either, at least not in the way my poly friends are poly. In the canon present this story takes place in, Ellie is currently in the beginning of a monogamous relationship with a certain fashion horse. Though she finds a lot of her friends attractive, she does not, in fact, go around propositioning them despite the bad decisions department of her brain constantly encouraging her to.

But with all that in mind, I just love how you've written this so far. So much caring and tenderness. The action is great and varied, with correct, realistic anatomy and actions. It's hot and sweet at the same time—my favorite combo. Excellent work. :twilightsmile:

Thank you thank you thank you! That is exactly the combo I was going for, caring and tenderness and hotness. I was resigned to continue to throw chapters out into the void and watching the downvotes accumulate, so I've genuinely been giddy all day that you appreciate and understand what I am trying to do. :yay:

Glad to have been of service. :ajsmug:

so when I first saw you say you were going to start reading this, a small part of me actually panicked and tried to convince me to pull it before it was too late! Really glad I did not, though. :twilightsheepish:

I'm glad you didn't, either! Not only would I have missed out on reading this, but you should write, first and foremost, for yourself, always. I don't publish anything I don't enjoy re-reading on my own. And it's flattering that you value my opinion, but it should be secondary to your own. :twilightsmile:

But yes! I came to this site looking for basically this story and did not find it. What I did find was, as you call it, most of the time bad. So, y'know. When you don't see something being done right, gotta do it yourself.

That's my motto with soooooo many things I've written or plan to write.

I was resigned to continue to throw chapters out into the void and watching the downvotes accumulate, so I've genuinely been giddy all day that you appreciate and understand what I am trying to do. :yay:

You're welcome. :ajsmug: Don't worry about the downvotes. I guarantee that most of them are just drive-by's who don't like the Human tag/the shippings/the characters, whatever. Just keep doing what makes your gay little heart happy.

This is why I headcanon Starlight as being completely unexperienced by the time of her reformation. I'd like to think she was self-aware enough to know that she shouldn't touch ponies she had completely under her control, but I could be wrong.

Oh, you are right. I mean, a story dealing with the fallout of that would not be fun to write, especially considering how bad Starlight is with bodily autonomy in general. My headcanon agrees with yours, Starlight spent her entire youth doing nothing but studying magic and her young adulthood doing evil things that don't involve touching ponies, leaving her 100% without experience for fun stories where she gets to learn a lot of great things from either a smug blue unicorn or a laconic grey Earth pony with great eyeshadow or both, simultaneously.

Damn, I was not expecting some sweet gender affirmation here. That was adorable. :heart:

Aww, thank you! That is the part from here I wish I could make canon to my stories the most, but I don't think Ellie's arc ever intersects the issue in all the stories I have planned.

Poor Ellie forgot about both eustrus and the fact that different species cannot reproduce...

Yes, different species from Ellie's world cannot reproduce. But Celestia knows how reproduction works in a world of magic. For instance, the different pony subspecies can interbreed yet instead of getting hybrids they always are purely of one subspecies or another (Bojack Horseman rules). Also, my ponies get three things! Voluntary ovulation, endometrium resorption instead of a menstrual cycle, and sexual activity unbound by phases (what do you call that, perennial? idk.) I just find the idea of heat phases implied by an estrous cycle to be too non-human and non-consensual to be enjoyable.

it all worked out nicely though. :)

Yes it did! :heart:

10554781
Well now that I have an audience I am going to have to start being anxious about possibly disappointing someone instead of confidently launching off chapters knowing how at odds they are with the prevailing tastes of this site. :pinkiesad2: But it definitely motivates me to write more!

Good point. It's probably best Ellie not find this out the hard way. On a sidenote, Bojack Horseman is fantastic. I'm sure you already knew that though.

Also, my ponies get three things! Voluntary ovulation, endometrium resorption instead of a menstrual cycle, and sexual activity unbound by phases (what do you call that, perennial? idk.)

Dang, those first two make them incredibly lucky. :rainbowlaugh: For the last, I think you mean that they don't have a heat cycle where they are only sexually receptive at that time, and that time only, just like IRL horses (and most animals). Humans are pretty much always sexually receptive, but I don't know what the word for that would be. Or maybe you mean something else entirely.

I just find the idea of heat phases implied by an estrous cycle to be too non-human and non-consensual to be enjoyable.

That's fair. I like it because it makes them more "horsey," but I don't write it as some kind of mind-altering frenzy that results in said mare being reduced to an animal. Nor do I write it in terms of sexual activity only ever possible/occurring at that time, because of that. (So not entirely like horses.) It's just a quick shortcut to not worrying about pregnancy in situations where that's relevant. Your solution to that is definitely one I have never seen before, so points for creative solutions. :twilightsmile:

Whoa now. You've done a good job already. Clearly, you know how to write and have thought things through, which is more than can be said quite often on here. Don't let my presence make you anxious. I'm nice. :ajsmug: Write whenever you want, whatever you want, and I'll let you know what I think. But I doubt I'll be disappointed.

Oh yeah, sorry! I should've thought through the possibility that estrous cycles can be depicted in a way that's compatible with the way our friends, the colorful sentient horses are depicted in the actual show, instead of entirely like horses. The way you do it sounds nice!

Dang, those first two make them incredibly lucky. :rainbowlaugh:

Haha, that's the idea! It's conforming with my general HiE theme which is that Equestria is just nicer than the terrible human world Ellie comes from and the ponies are just confused about the things that Ellie brings up. Maud's reactions to her in this chapter are a prime example of that.

Your solution to that is definitely one I have never seen before, so points for creative solutions. :twilightsmile:

Thanks! I mean it is totally wish fulfillment, just combining Nice Things to Have but that also ends up connecting to larger ideas, I swear!

Aw, thanks! :twilightblush: Writing now!

Aww, the friendship lesson was wholesome :twilightsmile:

I mean, uh, eww feelings, I don't want to read any of that gay stuff :pinkiesick: Can we please get back to our regularly scheduled homosexual intercourse? :trollestia:

10568613
But the feelings just make it hotter!

...Why do some of the lines in the Contents section of the description have links to their chapters? And if most of the ones for the published chapters do, why doesn't the one for the (as I write this) most recently published chapter?
Oh! Hey, which came out today, apparently.
Well, anyway, on to the story!

Chapter 1:
"I really have to add a skirt to this thing"
Huh. Why? I'm curious about whatever particular(s) of clothes-related culture in this Equestria may be in play here.

Chapter 2:
"for the all of the nights you snored"
"for all of the nights you snored"?

"She was insensate to anything in the world but her own pleasure. But this time she was also orgasming."
:D
Ah, Trixie.
"if a bit flat in terms of characterization"
:D
Don't worry, that isn't necessarily one of the canon parts. :D

Chapter 3:
"Ellie is right-handed, it’s canon now"
Oh, is it? :D

"Maud blinked. “Isn’t Coco Pommel an Earth pony? You said earlier—”

“Oh, right, of course!” Ellie said nervously."
Hm. Curious...

"But Ellie could care less about such things right now."
"But Ellie couldn't care less about such things right now."?
(Yes I know it's a phrase that's gotten into common usage, and if it's what actually works for the character here okay, but as long as I was commenting anyway I thought I'd point it out just in case. :D)

"Then she had an odd sensation of falling. A sickening sensation. That if she opened her eyes, it would be to a world where the experiences she just had were nothing more than an elaborate fantasy spun out in her head.

No. Not now. Not yet. Please."
Hm...

"the exact same energy that she uses when"
"the exact same energy that she used when"?

Chapter 4:
"You don’t have to anything you’re"
"You don’t have to do anything you’re"?

"the belt of her frock of her teeth"
"the belt of her frock with her teeth"?

"With a beautiful clit."
Ah! I believe this clears up/confirms a matter/hypothesis of terminology that I was a bit puzzled by in Alicorn Biology: Princess Celestia but not enough to remark on it yet then (I believe I was waiting for more data).
Though of course that is a bit further complicated by Celestia being biologically... whatever exactly alicorns are, which is some of the additional data I was likely looking for as the series continues. Exactly what Celestia identifies as gender-wise also isn't entirely clear, given the obvious already-observed differences between her public presentations and statements and even just some of what's actually going on. But I think a key factor in the terminology there was that the viewpoint was from Lyra, who's clearly interested in mares, possibly primarily or exclusively interested in mares (I don't recall if there was any hinting otherwise), who's there with someone who at least publicly identifies as a mare, and who is quite likely the least knowledgeable among the three present about whatever Celestia actually might be. Hence, the terminology used. (Though I'm guessing, from Ellie's usage of it here, that it may also be used on our Earth in contexts I've not happened to encounter. It makes sense, I think.)
Though given Maud and the mention of that mare in Starlight's village, I'm definitely wondering about just how gender dysphoria works in this Equestria. A key question, of course, is whether these are just the bodies Maud and that mare are most comfortable in, or whether they're an indication that this Equestria doesn't have practical (in this context) full sex change magic (That Maud apparently didn't have access to it growing up doesn't necessarily mean much; there could be a minimum age, or it could have something to do with her particular family circumstances, for instance. And as she said, she felt better about being different when she grew up, so that might be that she didn't need/want it by the time she was able to get it.) but does have various cultural and other elements easing acceptance both by self and others. And then there's the question of lesser measures, HRT-equivalents, and what's going on there... It is, of course, a very complicated subject with a lot of possibilities even without magic getting involved.
And I have limited time and more story left, soooo continuing on. :D

"imagine what it was in it for"
"imagine what was in it for"?

"The adorable little pony breasts above the base of her clit"
...Which raises many more questions in the vein of the above.

"You’re saying that humans can get pregnant even when they don’t want to?"
Raising questions about what the particular mechanism of these ponies not having that trait is, of course. :)

"trying to reassure be about something"
"trying to reassure me about something"?

"lassi"
[wikis]
Huh. Don't think I'd ever heard of that before. Neat.

"share with all of us"
Ah. Did she just break the fourth wall, or was that meant to refer to the group present? :D
Hm. Not sure how best to word the latter here, though...

"Ellie says trans rights."
Was that meant to be in an author's note?

Oh, and I'm glad Equestria appears to have such good trans rights, just to make sure that was clearly said. :)
However curious I may be about the details. :D
(But, yeah, even metaknowledge (author, tags, etc.) informing me how vanishingly unlikely a major problem would be, I still shared some of Ellie's nervousness about how Maud'd be received. Since, ah... well, there's a lot for Ellie to not want to talk about on this subject and her origin world, one might put it as...)

10557188
"Also, my ponies get three things! Voluntary ovulation, endometrium resorption instead of a menstrual cycle, and sexual activity unbound by phases (what do you call that, perennial? idk.)"
Ah, well that answers one question; thanks! :D
So, endometrium resorption like Earth horses, year-round potential for sexual interest and activity like Earth humans, and voluntary ovulation like no Earth species I'm away of (sounds like a useful ability, though!)?
(As for an estrous cycle, though, I think it depends on the specific implementation. (These two relatively recent Freefall strips also comes to mind.) No problem with you not using it here, of course, though. :)
(And, of course, the "too non-human" thing could be a matter of taste issue even with an otherwise workable system.))

Chapter 5:
"They laughed together in a way that would be appropriate for the end of an episode of a children’s cartoon, as one does after learning a friendship lesson."
:)

"Ellie was absolutely besides herself"
"Ellie was absolutely beside herself"?

"Trixie tongue explored deeper"
"Trixie's tongue explored deeper"?

"then laid down in such a way that her"
"then lay down in such a way that her"?

Aaand finished with the currently posted chapters!
Thank you for writing. :)

She would have purred like a cat if she weren’t, like, a really cool girl who doesn’t even watch animé or go to this school.

“Just one orgasm and now you’re just cuddling?” The blue unicorn ughed. “This is the lamest orgy I’ve ever been to. I’m going to leave before I get infected by any of your lameness.”

"Ughed" is the perfect dialogue tag that's not a dialogue tag in this situation. Trixie is such an unrepentant jackass here (at first), and I love it. :rainbowlaugh:

The "friendship lesson" was surprisingly sweet. That Maud stare always works. Nice to see Trixie's insecurity admitted and channeled into something more honest.

“Honestly, just the idea of you thinking of anypony not named Trixie first might be enough to make me come all by itself!“

:rainbowlaugh: You are just too good with lines like this. The meta jokes that come right after are just... *chef's kiss*

Ever since she first saw how Trixie and Starlight interacted with each other, she would whisper “Now, kiss!” to herself whenever she saw their faces got too close to one another, or to be perfectly honest, whenever they were next to each other at all. And now, it was actually happening! It was as if the universe were contorting itself to follow her exact wishes.

TIL my name is Ellie.

That threesome was really, really well done. Great use of description, including scent and sound. I don't blame Ellie for just sitting back and watching. That was unbelievably hot. I liked how it started with Trixie admitting her insecurities and desire to overcome them, then transitioned into a ouroboros of friendship, affection, and desire. Très magnifique.

Also, since I don't think I've commented this before, but your inclusion of YouTube links to similar lines is something I haven't seen before. It definitely works here. You have the characters down pat, so I can already hear their voices in my head anyway, but it's nice to include a reminder. Plus I'm a sucker for rehashing great moments from the show.

10568921
For what it's worth, using "clit[oris]" to refer even to a pre-op trans woman's bits is not unheard of in human contexts, though not too common I don't think.

10568921

Typos

I might go back and fix those before the last chapter. "Could care less" is intentional, because I think it's funny that it means the opposite of the literal reading.

Though given Maud and the mention of that mare in Starlight's village, I'm definitely wondering about just how gender dysphoria works in this Equestria.

Since none of the story so far has actually happened, especially the Starlight's village thing, I have not actually answered this! I do headcanon Maud as trans but there is no way for Ellie to ever even find this out, since in this Equestria it's a detail about as exciting as a childhood gallbladder operation.

Hm...

No spoilers now!

Ah. Did she just break the fourth wall, or was that meant to refer to the group present? :D

It's a thought she's broadcasting, knowing there's no audience, because she thinks it's funny. If Twitter existed she would tweet it but no such thing exists in Equestria because it's a nice place. So in a way it is intended for us without knowing beings who have access to a narrative describing her thoughts exist. No fourth wall breaking or weird meta stuff here!

, and voluntary ovulation like no Earth species I'm away of (sounds like a useful ability, though!)?

Based it on the idea of induced ovulation, just made the trigger an act of mental volition during coïtus.

Got it in one. Either we're around the same age, or like media from the same era, or that scene has been referenced so much on the internet that it's just part of the water supply now. Inclusive or.

"Ughed" is the perfect dialogue tag that's not a dialogue tag in this situation.

Trixie's Trixie noises make perfect dialogue tags! My favorite of the ones I've used so far is "hmphed snootily".

The "friendship lesson" was surprisingly sweet. That Maud stare always works. Nice to see Trixie's insecurity admitted and channeled into something more honest.

Aww, thanks! "Surprisingly sweet" is what I'm going for a lot of the time.

:rainbowlaugh: You are just too good with lines like this. The meta jokes that come right after are just... *chef's kiss*

Thank you, thank you! That particular meta joke is from me being a bit self-conscious about spending my free time making the children's cartoon ponies do adult things with each other, but it's not my fault they made the ponies so attractive! (Which is something I yell often at the TV.)

TIL my name is Ellie.

Thought you might like that one!

Très magnifique.

Mercy buckets! Rien que le meilleur pour mes lectrices.

You have the characters down pat, so I can already hear their voices in my head anyway, but it's nice to include a reminder. Plus I'm a sucker for rehashing great moments from the show.

I also rewatch the clips just to make sure my own voice for them isn't drifting too far from the show, so it's really nice to hear my versions ring true for you as a fellow fan of the characters.

10572426
That's what I'd started guessing, but thanks for the confirmation!

10572634
"I might go back and fix those before the last chapter."
Righto; up to you.

""Could care less" is intentional, because I think it's funny that it means the opposite of the literal reading."
Funny! Ah heh. Riiight. [Twilight eye twitch]
(Though I find that I am now indeed happily laughing, aloud, so, uh. Mission accomplished? :D)
(...And I suppose, actually, it is somewhat funny, looked at that way. Maybe this will even help me take it more easily in the future? Uh. Well. Okay, not seeming too likely, but still, maybe!)
(Anyway, thanks. :))

Ah, well, thanks for the... "answer"? :D
(Though now I'm wondering about just how much of this story has actually not happened, since even if some past elements like the Starlight's village thing haven't, obviously it's not actually none since the immediate events prior to the story's happening, that caused it to happen, did.
...Unless, I suppose, this universe was created at the story's start with a false past very similar to that of a different one, and we count that as not happening? Or they're just parallel in general, and "actually happened" means "actually happened in the main universe". Hm.
...Possibly I'm overthinking this? :D Eh. Don't know, but (un?)fortunately I do have other things I need to do, so, moving on!)
(Though now I'm wondering what Ellie, in the main universe here, thinks the trans situation might be. Her not having come across any mention of it could indicate a number of different possibilities, after all, and she was explicitly concerned about other aspects of Equestrian culture that are, with varying degrees of fairness, closely associated in her origin culture.)

:)

[looks back at the text and ponders]
[has a realization]
Oh, oh! The following line about trans rights is her thought? Okay, yeah, I did not get that the first time, or immediately this time. Maybe replace the period after "all of us" with a colon to make that more clear? Though I'm not sure how widespread this issue might be.
(This also clears up my question of whether that last line was meant to be in an author's note, too.)
Thanks!

And thanks.
...Though if it's during coitus, that seems like it might still lead to accidents due to distraction and pulling the wrong mental lever by accident. Still, at the least not worse than the human system, at least as far as I've thought on them so far, just with different tradeoffs, and quite likely still better overall in the areas we're most concerned with.

10572670

Got it in one. Either we're around the same age, or like media from the same era, or that scene has been referenced so much on the internet that it's just part of the water supply now. Inclusive or.

Probably all of the above, TBH. I'm in my late twenties, which makes me elderly by site standards. Mean Girls was one of my favorite movies growing up, and I'm glad it's still memeable all this time later.

Trixie's Trixie noises make perfect dialogue tags! My favorite of the ones I've used so far is "hmphed snootily".

That one was great too!

Nothing wrong with this kind of content as long as it's properly hidden from the target audience. You can't see this story unless you lie verify that you're an adult, so no harm done. Besides, it's too fun writing about the magical gay horses doing naughty things to each other. And yes, they are more attractive than they have any right to be! Damn animators!

Mercy buckets!

*snort* :rainbowlaugh:

I also rewatch the clips just to make sure my own voice for them isn't drifting too far from the show, so it's really nice to hear my versions ring true for you as a fellow fan of the characters.

Welp, that strategy is definitely working. Keep doing what you're doin'!

I think you gave me another creaky joint just now. I'm in my early thirties, which I guess makes me almost dead by site standards and real life.

Besides, it's too fun writing about the magical gay horses doing naughty things to each other. And yes, they are more attractive than they have any right to be! Damn animators!

Judging from the thousands of words I've wrote about this so far, I will have to regretfully concede that you are right, it is fun. I swear, I used to be a cool and normal person before the magical gay horses turned me frickin' magical-gay-horse-gay.

Keep doing what you're doin'!

Yes, Ma'am! I don't think I could stop myself at this point anyway.

As usual eliding the, uh, M rated bits in favour of the emotional shenanigans c:

She was supposed to speak laconically, only ever infodumping about things specific to her specialty

Was thinking of this scene, so make of that what you will.

Really weird she's in high school when her pony counterpart literally has a Ph.D., but whatever.

Ah, of course. That scene certainly does not conflict with said headcanon ;3

I was never a cool or normal person, so I've avoided this trap beautifully. ^^

I find I don't have that much to say this time, but the ponies and human appear to be continuing to have a good time. :)
And a few more hints, or potential hints, have been dropped to the reader about what might actually be going on here...

“Even maximized the Shaynon entropy, which is a good term to include in order to reward high-variance strategies.” Maud commented with a hint of self-satisfaction.

Yet again, you've given me something to Google. The meta bits about Maud's character had me rolling again. :rainbowlaugh:

Anything else would make her a nerd, and Ellie wasn’t attracted to those.

Nerds? Eww, gross. Could you imagine being attracted to one? Disgusting.

Well… If the breast she was sucking on were of the same size as the larger human ones she’d sucked on in the past, or on Maud’s chest instead, or if the clit she was stroking were a human one, or if she had hands instead of hooves or stood on two legs or had shoulders or anything to make her anatomy more human, that would just seem kind of wrong, and be a turnoff?

Eww, no anthro. (Serious this time.) Feral, full human, or bust. No in-between. It's far too uncanny valley for my libido.

Which, to answer her question from earlier, probably meant that she actually wasn’t a furry now, but something that was somehow worse. But thankfully there was no name for such a strange, strange thing to be, so she didn’t have to keep thinking about it so hard.

I'm sorry to tell you, Ellie, but you're still a furry.

Those weird white trees back in the human world that everybody said smelled like semen.

Callery Pear, I think?

As someone who doesn't find Maud attractive at all, you've made her seem pretty adorable and even sexy at points throughout all of this. Ellie's interactions with her are just too adorable and sweet. The bit about Pinkie Pie and huffing paint was a nice, hilarious touch too. (Although, yes, Ellie, let's put a pin in those implications... Wish this site as a whole would.)

The StarTrix was somehow even more adorable than ever before though. Gahhhhhhhhhh I love them so much. :heart: Although, curious to see what Ellie and Trixie (now chilled out a bit) will do, given that they are the only ones who haven't interacted yet. I'm sure you have something delightfully naughty planned. :twilightsmile:

Thanks! That time was me taking issue with how some writers round down Maud's character to overuse of technical words when she is actually technical in a different way (also can't help but swoon over Maud in this clip).

Nerds? Eww, gross. Could you imagine being attracted to one? Disgusting.

Yeah, I know! Ugh. Thankfully, Maud isn't one of those which you can tell because she has good eye makeup. Ellie isn't either, which you can tell because she goes on and on about how much she doesn't watch anime, which is the exact opposite of what a nerd does.

Eww, no anthro. (Serious this time.) Feral, full human, or bust. No in-between. It's far too uncanny valley for my libido.

Same so much. My libido also hates it when their proportions are depicted as being too close to those of actual horses. My libido is very picky, but I like to think of it as having refinement.

I'm sorry to tell you, Ellie, but you're still a furry.

What!? But I thought I was just talking about how IweEllie wasn't into anthro stuff! :raritydespair:

Callery Pear, I think?

Yep! But I only knew after I googled it, so I figured Ellie wouldn't know it either since Equestria doesn't have that. And she's not about to ask Twilight to look up "what those trees that smell like cum are called", even if she's curious.

As someone who doesn't find Maud attractive at all,

Sorry, I keep reading this phrase over and over again trying to understand it but I just can't seem to parse the meaning. Is there some sort of weird grammar thing going on here?

The bit about Pinkie Pie and huffing paint was a nice, hilarious touch too.

Thanks! It's a reference to the only chapter of SfaL: in Equestria that I think is "good" rather than just "ok".

The StarTrix was somehow even more adorable than ever before though. Gahhhhhhhhhh I love them so much. :heart:

I really did love writing it. Really looking forward to a long career of writing mares with fun personalities falling in love with each other and being adorably affectionate because Equestria is a nice place.

Although, curious to see what Ellie and Trixie (now chilled out a bit) will do, given that they are the only ones who haven't interacted yet. I'm sure you have something delightfully naughty planned. :twilightsmile:

I'm afraid my goal for the next chapter is more delightfully sweet, but I will try to make up for it in the chapter after that!

Thanks! That time was me taking issue with how some writers round down Maud's character to overuse of technical words when she is actually technical in a different way (also can't help but swoon over Maud in this clip).

You're welcome! Yeah, I see what you mean. She's technical in the literal sense, not in the overly wordy sense (unless it has to do with her specialties). I've also seen other writers on the site mix this up.

Same so much. My libido also hates it when their proportions are depicted as being too close to those of actual horses. My libido is very picky, but I like to think of it as having refinement.

A woman of culture, I see.

What!? But I thought I was just talking about how IweEllie wasn't into anthro stuff! :raritydespair:

I'm sorry to tell you Ellie this, but, technically, she, along with all bronies in general, is a furry by virtue of liking anthromorphic animals alone, even if she's not into the weird anthro stuff. It's a mantle thrust upon her by definition. The first step is admitting she has a problem. The second step is not giving a shit and enjoying it anyway. :pinkiehappy:

Sorry, I keep reading this phrase over and over again trying to understand it but I just can't seem to parse the meaning. Is there some sort of weird grammar thing going on here?

:rainbowlaugh: I guess my grammar is just too technical to be understood! More stoic rock pony for you Ellie, I guess.

Thanks! It's a reference to the only chapter of SfaL: in Equestria that I think is "good" rather than just "ok".

Interesting. I'll keep that in mind if/when I get around to it.

I'm afraid my goal for the next chapter is more delightfully sweet, but I will try to make up for it in the chapter after that!

I'm sure I'll enjoy both either way! :twilightsmile:

But if she's enjoying it a lot already without any inhibition whatsoever, can't she skip the part about admitting anything at all? Asking for a friend.

:rainbowlaugh: I guess my grammar is just too technical to be understood! More stoic rock pony for you Ellie, I guess.

I love stoic rock pony. That is what I will call her from now on.

I'm sure I'll enjoy both either way! :twilightsmile:

I blame you for the turn this chapter took, by the way. It was supposed to be half the length and cover both this and the next chapter and not involve this much Trixie!

It felt homotopic to how she felt about seeing Maud without clothes on

I thought I was the only one with topology terms thrown into gay fanfic

“D-do you have a friendship lesson fetish?”

This line makes the chapter :twilightsheepish:

I mean... I guess? I'm not one to judge. Personally, I'm a big fan of embracing uncomfortable labels because screw people who actually judge you based on them, (they're basically a weeding tool at that point) but you Ellie can do whatever she wants.

Big oooooooooof. Sorry!

Although, I love what you did with this chapter. So much introspection, character analysis/development, and vulnerability. I think I share Ellie's weird fetish of friendship lessons, because my God. This chapter was equal parts hilarious, sweet, and sexy. I'm glad it didn't just devolve into Trixie sitting on Ellie's face and that being it, because there's soooooo much more they could/should do together. Not to mention that there's so much more to Trixie. I'm glad Ellie recognized that, because there's more depth beneath that attitude.

If you allow me to self-indulge a bit here, I think Trixie's a seriously unexplored character, both in terms of the show and the fandom. Going from being a narcissistic vagabond, to somepony who literally moved to Ponyville to be closer to Starlight (the wagon basically becomes a permanent fixture near Twilight's castle sometime between No Second Prances and To Where And Back Again), to somepony who became the frickin' Guidance Counselor at the School of Friendship after bombing her own Vice Headmare interview (and finding the perfect candidate in her stead, no less!) suggests an evolving late-adulthood maturity that lends to more than "Blah blah smoke bombs and third-person grammar". People who suggest StarTrix (or Mauxie, or Trixie ships in general) can't work because "Trixie bad" or just hate her in general haven't been paying attention. Glad to see someone else recognizing this disconnect and writing it out in a way that makes sense.

“Intimacy can be the best fetish sometimes, and nopony should be afraid to admit that.”

This x 9000. With this line in mind, I know some of my spicier stories are on your Read It Later, so I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on those when you get to them...

Damn. Can't wait for the next chapter. No pressure though! I know Ellie x ego horse is gonna be hot AF and well worth all this character-building dialogue. :twilightsmile: Starlight and stoic rock pony are excited, and so am I.

"Ellie had to reconsider her previous assessments of Trixie’s shows."
Interesting. Why that reconsideration now, I wonder?

"Ellie did not say that before the conversation, she actually hadn’t taken Trixie this seriously. It was through having to actually talk to her that made her reconsider how she saw the blue unicorn, who in her mind she always called “smug blue horse”."
Oh. :D

"Wow, we have a lot more in common than I would have thought."
...Now I'm sad about this conversation being noncanon. Well... maybe they'll have a similar one in a different context?

10583196
Well, it has the word "homo" right in the name!

10583833

...Now I'm sad about this conversation being noncanon. Well... maybe they'll have a similar one in a different context?

That's the trouble with making these scenes so nice, it would be nice if they happened! Ellie does respect Trixie more in the canon, though.

Ha, well, I do begrudgingly accept the furry label for myself with this logic of it being an umbrella term for being into non-human anthropomorphic stuff in general. I've had months to come to terms with it, though it is pretty funny reading my journal from back then and my desperate, desperate attempts to rationalize it and try to find the reasons why this terrible, wonderful thing happened to me. But in a way, all this fanfic stuff I'm doing is part of the whole rationalization process, so, you're welcome! :raritywink:

But it did get me thinking, and hear me out on this. It's not that I think the furry label is "cringe" or "bad". I self-deprecatingly write that whatever label one would give Ellie (and thus myself) is worse than "furry". It's that it's not specific enough to express what I like, which is due to its position as an umbrella term. It's not just the anatomical stuff of being limited to pony, zebra and kirin mares (and only mares lol) depicted with proportions fitting with the cute/round/puffy style of the show, but also the feeeemale-centric world it takes place in that lacks so many of the bad things of our world, with the emotional health waterline generally being higher (both artifacts of the G-ratedness of the canon), and the sex generally being more happy and intimate and reciprocal (obviously extra-canonical but I feel is implied).

So I accept "furry" as an umbrella label for myself, but prefer a term that doesn't exist which would be more specific. Much in the same way, I accept "queer" as an umbrella label for myself, but prefer a term that does exist which is more specific.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Big oooooooooof. Sorry!

Noooooooooo don't apologize! It definitely led things in a better, sexier, if more time-consuming direction.

I think I share Ellie's weird fetish of friendship lessons

Noooooooooo she specifically doesn't have one of those, okay!? It just came out!

But I am glad you liked it so much. :twilightsmile:

If you allow me to self-indulge a bit here

Please, indulge all the time if this is how you indulge. i agree, I always thought of Trixie as more complex and interesting even before her arc starting in No Second Prances. I mean, she's a showpony! One that was actually successfully out-magicking and wowing the ponies of this one-horse farming village until the future Goddess-Queen in embryo who just happened to be living in said random farming village ruined it! Then there was that series of flashbacks in Magic Duel, depicting her as a homeless vagabond living a tragic life of getting mocked and rejected wherever she goes, until finally she has to lower herself to working at a rock farm.

(Where, obviously, a lot of wonderful things happened between her and whichever of the Pie sisters you might imagine, however you might imagine it. So much good fan stuff from that one-second throwaway line!)

But then, yes! The arc with Starlight started in No Second Prances (but not finished as a romance because the toy company are cowards), and the late-young-adulthood process of settling into a less exciting but more realistic and stable career, and finding ways to manage that transition without becoming a boring pony (a process that the author is currently undergoing), all great things that objectively make her an interesting character with true depth. (Then there's how hot the smug, nasal whine in her voice is but that one's more subjective.) "Trixie good”, as one might say.

This x 9000. With this line in mind, I know some of my spicier stories are on your Read It Later, so I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on those when you get to them...

They are literally the next fics I am intending to read! It's just that if I'm in a space where I can do more than comment and actually read something with attention, I'm also in a space where I could be writing instead, and I've just been choosing to spend that time writing since there's so much in my dumb brain I want to get out. But I am very excited to get to them. And don't worry, you will definitely hear my thoughts. :ajsmug:

Group theory (/abstract algebra more generally) is better, it's about the study of homomorphisms. Lots of homo in math.

10584100
That's alright, because it's all just homo to me.

10584211
No, I mean like, homomorphisms don't deserve their name because they don't carry any structure that can't be flattened down to the concept of a morphism. Homotopies and homologies, however, are good and cool and interesting on their own, thus meriting the first four letters of their names. Homomorphisms without any additional structure are basically combinatorics.

Sorry, this is my most controversial opinion.
