Fantastic! Thank you so much for this glorious gift! :heart:


You're welcome! I hope it was as fun to read as it was to write. :twilightsmile:

So sweet it makes my teeth hurt! Nothing can beat Flurry and Thorax, especially the former.


Thanks! Yeah, this was a fun bundle of fluff to write. :twilightsmile:

The absolutely sweetest kind! Which you are proving ever proficient at writing.

“Wow, two parties? That’s great, Spike!”

Is it just me, or is there a weird formatting space between "Wow" and "two" for anyone else?


The site is having some kind of bug that does that. Dunno why.

Ooh, Thorax gets to see Flurry Heart again? Now that's what I call my heartwarming gift to get this year


Hope you like the story!

“Nope! They’re back in Ponyville, helping Twilight set up her Hearth’s Warming Eve celebration at the castle.” Spike puffed out his chest. “Shining and Cadance asked if I could come and help set up their big party. I’ll be heading back to Ponyville tonight, so…” He casually rubbed a talon across his scales, then smirked. “That means I’ll be attending both parties.”

Two parties dang Spike you're going to be so tired after the holiday 😅

“She’s behaving way better for you than she does most ponies. The day Twilight and I looked after her for Shining and Cadance—” Spike shook his head, laughing— “it was a total disaster.”

Oh yeah I remember that in season 7 it was crazy of an episode but a fun one lol

Aww that was a cute story and I really like how flurry heart really like thorax ever since he lived with them back in season 6 and probably he babysat her which I really wish we could see that it would have been so sweet how much they get along with each other so so racks got invited to the Crystal Empire for Hearts warming so he can learn about the holiday and it's pretty sweet that Spike showed him around the Crystal Empire since it's been awhile that he's been there and I really do like the special moment between thorax and flurry heart this was a really sweet holiday story keep up the good work Merry Christmas


Thanks, glad you liked it! Merry Christmas. :twilightsmile:

This story was really sweet! The fic was so evocative in the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas/Hearthswarming, that the whole thing just feels whimsical to read through


Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile:

I found two or three more groups to add this to. Cuteness should be shared.

Aw, this was nice! This time of year, sometimes a story that's simply nice and sweet and cute is all we need, and that provides this in spades.It's often preferable to something that tries, and fumbles, to be overtly deep or funny.

While I wasn't totally onboard with the "marginal AU angle to facilitate the changeling being introduced to Hearth's Warming in a way that allows this story to happen this way" angle, because, well, it's just so the story can happen this way, it wasn't overtly intrusive, so it wasn't more then a niggle in the end.

Spike and Thorax continue to have a nice dynamic between the two, both being more likely to show nerves then most of the main cast, but also in possession of a noble valour that can push them to great things. Pity the show never did more with that, what with Thorax, like many minor supporting character, falling by the wayside in the show's last two seasons under the new story crew, and thus we never saw him interact with Spike again, or indeed make more then cameo appearances. Oh well.

Not really much else to say - cute, nice, comfy. Only sin is it's probably not all that memorable. I'm glad I read it!


Aww, thanks! Glad you thought so. :twilightsmile:


Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it. :twilightsmile: Yes, I wish the show would have done more with Thorax (and the other post-reformation Changelings) also. Ah well, that's what the site's for! :ajsmug:

If this was any cuter, I'd have ended up with terminal diabetes. I am OK with this.


The old Pharynx definitely would have wanted to tear this one down.

As he stared up at the mighty tree, Thorax searched his memory, thinking back to the guidebook on plants Princess Luna had given him and Pharynx.

I wonder what those two are up to :ajsmug:

Thorax and Spike! God, I wish we'd seen more of these two. I think they shined really well here, not to knock on Flurry, but I've always wanted to see them interact again. You delivered here, alright :twilightsmile: and Flurry too! Such a precious little bundle of joy.

I haven't really experienced Christmas, different religion and all, so being put into Thorax's shoes (hooves, horseshoes?) was a nice experience. And Chrysalis not telling the Hive anything outside of what they need during combat, gah. That's cold, and cruel. But all in all, I'm happy to see Thorax move out of that hole, along with the Hive, and Spike and Flurry's there, every step of the way.

I enjoyed the pleasant, light tone of the fic, Brings to mind a fireplace's warmth in the winter night :twilightsmile:

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year! (because I'm late to reading this but shhh)


When you open with that Parks and Rec screenshot, I know I did something right. :ajsmug:

Thanks for the feedback, Sledge! I'm glad this fic was enjoyable to someone who isn't familiar with Christmas. Spike seemed a natural inclusion in this fic. I also wished we would have seen more of him and Thorax interacting in the show.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you as well! :twilightsmile:

Oh that was rather cute


Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile:

Utterly delightful fluff. I regret not reading it sooner. This was top form wholesome goodies right here.

“And that’s a really great place to get flowers, and that’s an awesome place for lunch, and…”

So, for Ponies, that would be "Carry-Out" and "Restaurant Dining"?
