I got dragged to Equestria by pure accident due to an experiment gone 'wrong', roughly forty years before Nightmare Moons' arrival.
No matter what I do, as a pony-changeling hybrid, something will change with Equestria. I just hope I don't doom the country before Nightmare Moon even arrives... Or worse.


This is the first story I ever tried to write professionally, so there WILL be errors, for that, I apologize in advance.
I'm editing and proofreading it on my own because I literally suck when it comes to using this site competently.
Lastly, I am a slow writer due to IRL getting in the way but I will try my hardest to settle the story down whether it's popular or not.

Fair warning, there may be spoilers in the comments.

Thank you to Little Tigress for the fantastic cover art.

Can't wait for next chapter

Man fuck you Celestia pulling the it was all a dream bullshit so she could get the answers she wanted without his consent.

Or at least that is what I think happened

11020303
Preety close. It isn't a dream a dream though.

Well this doesn't make much sense...

Can't wait for next update 😊

Hmmm Celestia is slight bitch here. Knows he is innocent but yet still isolating him and fucking with his mind. Anyways good story so far hope to see more.

Oof, to fast but ok.
I’ll read it anyways since I’m curious

Keep up the good work 😸

Okay, I am really curious to see where this one is going.

Very nice! I’m looking forward to his acclimation to his new circumstances. I wonder what kid of challenges he’ll run into along the way.

I have a feeling his playfulness and new love for sweets is because of him feeding off on Celestia. If they did another DNA and magic scan I wonder if it will come back similar to her now somewhat. 🤔

Surprisingly close speculation. More like, enhanced what was already there. My changelings simply love sweets.

“For the last time: those. Are! YOUR! WINGS!” She screamed at me before placing her head back between her beige hooves.

I believe this is improper colon use, as colons are used to build upon the statement preceding it with a statement or to make a list. I think a comma would be more appropriate here.

An example of proper colon use would be something like this. "Here's what I want: go away, never come back."

Turning around, apparently, was a mistake, regardless of the direction. Because, as it turns out, the heavy metal doors can pull a disappearing act as well. Namely, the cell doors and the bars around them were missing and I was gawking at a wall of stone blocks. No doors, no bars, no princesses and no guards… oh and the missing mare.

As two paragraphs up you didn't pluralize door, either that paragraph is wrong, or this one is in having door pluralized for all but the last one.

Otherwise, your story has been fairly enjoyable after I got past this first chapter, if fast-paced, but I'm guilty of having similarly paced stories.

Thank you for pointing it out, it completely slipped my radar.

no problem, a big problem I notice is comma misuse, but it would be really messy to correct those here, and I had just finished going through the first two chapters of my own story to fix mistakes, so I was in an editing mood.

Seems like Patchwork is becoming a changeling king.

Hey, no need to apologise to us for delays, you owe us nothing. We're just happy that you're still writing and sharing it with us.

I get the feeling from the change in behavior after he just mentioned that he turned down the doctors wanting him for a guinea pig that she was responsible for him agreeing and it wasn't entirely within his free will.

I caught up... I love this! I can't wait for more!

Ok this is going to be fun to read

Aside from my apartment, the entire room got a boost. New machines, new furniture as well as proper sectioning of the, well, sections and the tests… by the stars, the tests are never-ending. Speed (barely as fast as a pegasus), endurance (higher than a pegasus, lower than an earth pony), strength (pegasus level), magic (unimpressive by unicorn standards), weight (one hundred kg, (same unit, go figure) I am considered heavy), height, one-twenty cm), breathing, MORE blood tests, etc, etc, etc.

heres an interesting fact for you. The Kilogram is currently based off of a physical object, though they are working to change this, the fact remains that what is defined as a single Kilogram here on earth could be totally different to how its defined here in this equestria. and lets face it, because magic, their definition is likely hundreds of times more streamlined than here on earth.

Not since... 2019 I think?
It's based on the Planck constant now. A tiny, unvarying number that plays a key role in quantum physics.

This is an interesting start of a story, I'll be adding it to my favorites. 😊 Next chapter, here I come. 😂

I am loving this story! Keep up the great work and looking forward to reading the next chapter. 😁

Bun honestly, I have an unfair advantage when it comes to learning.

But

I ran into some interesting titbits.

tidbits


and a hoof-full of testrals know her real location.

Ponies pray to her for good dreams and Testrals have a whole holiday specifically FOR her.

thestrals


From golemancy, to runology, geomancy, and arobormancy

Mind explaining what the first & fourth are to me?

11095761
Thank you for bringing those mistakes to my notice. They have been fixed.
Golemnacy is the ability to create and manipulate golems. Nature-type golems, in earth pony case.
Arbormancy is the ability to create and manipulate trees of various types.
Hope this helps.

This is interesting. Also, competent illusionists are Terrifying.

You're not you when you're hungry. Eat a Pony.

11101402
Oh yea, not being able to trust one's eyes or other senses is terrifying. Unless you are into that sort of thing. >_>

This is really engaging. I love this.

This really is just a great story.

Very nice chapter. Unfortunately for me, I keep forgetting what the characters look like.

Zap is our foremost expert on tech, and she and her team want you to explain as much as you can about the… wat’chu call them… ‘gadgets’

This is a fascinating topic, but I rather suspect that the average "random human" would be incapable of usefully describing the technology they use everyday. Teaching somebody how to use a cellphone would be of very little use in terms of reproducing one. Modern electornics are built in multi-million dollar factories not suited for individual manufacture by aindividuals. Nothing is soldered by hand anymore, and even that isn't exactly common knowledge. Imagine that you were the one in Equestria. Would you be able to jumpstart a modern tech revolution? Would you be able to explain how to build vaccum tubes? Would you be able to explain the metallurgy of electronics? Would you be able to walk them through how to build logic gates and assemble them into circuitry? Do you know how to build a register? How to build memory? Would you be able to take them from simple mechanical calculators to programmable processing?

Would the average person be able to do any of these things?

How frustrating would it be to be the pony in that room, asking how to build such a wonderful device, and being met with a blank stare, and then:

"Dunno any of that stuff, but here's Angry Birds."

Strange chapter. Reads like a Very Special Episode to tell us that "racism is bad, mmmkay?"

Why exactly was this pony carrying a muzzle around? Given that it's been established that changelings have hunderds of years of antagonistic history with ponies, abducting them to be food as has been established in previous chapters...feeding on them to the point that they collapse as has been established in previous chapters...becoming feral and violent based purely on biology as has been established by previous chapters...is it really such a stretch to guess that maybe some ponis might actually have pretty good reasons to dislike changelings?

11102718
This was nothing sort of a chance meeting with a pony that holds onto the old ideas of superiority. Kind of how you can run into these kinds of people irl with only the drop of a coin being the start of an argument (even more so in today's climate). It does have weight a bit further down the line.
But as far as changelings being know, they aren't. Less than 1% of ponies in my story know about who or what they are, and I made sure Celestia mentioned it beforehand.

Far as them becoming feral, we have only seen Patchwork act like it, other Changelings are yet to enter the story.

Hope this clears its up a bit. Pm if something is still unclear.

Edit: it does, unfortunately, come off as a one shot 'special episode', but that's more on me lacking experience in storytelling I guess

Fascinating to think about just how different the culture of pony land is when seen somewhat more realistically/darkly, and how even mindsets will differ purely because of biology and instincts.

Discord has cost the world an entire century at best

So what would the worst be? A single millenia or global destruction? Something else?

11107021
Deppending on which stories you read i would wager. Mine is not that dark, so I 'omit' some details. But let's be realistic, if a creature like Discord existed lost knowledge and lost time would be the least, and lost civilizations and races would be worst. My guess is, it would be like what Thanos did with the snap, but just on one world.

You are certainly correct about modern electronics, even the best expert electronic engineer could not reproduce a smartphone alone. Frankly, that probably extends to almost any electronic device much more complex than a toaster if your talking about starting from nothing. There are just too many separate fields involved you would have to be an expert in.

I think your average person could still provide quite a number of insights to a society with a much lower technology level. The trick would be telling the right people the right things. I might be wrong, but I think most people could describe the very basics of electricity generation and motors, or how a combustion engine works, basic germ theory. The list is pretty long for things that might jump start advancement simply by presenting a general idea to the current experts. Its a fun idea to play around with at least.

It feels like someone is going to find the book.
