I like writing about the worst day of a character's life; it lets us see the mettle inside. (Sock / Sock's / Sock, no!)

Sweetie Bot needs fifteen bits. A month. For a subscription.

Rarity's face went from white to a new color that would have required fifteen optical physicists, four poets, nine artists, six ophthalmologists, and a trademark attorney to find a name for.

Amazing.

As is the whole exchange. Delightful bit of sibling banter, especially given Rarity's quasi-parental role. (And now I wonder what their mother might have said...) Thank you for it.

"And because I'm made from high-stress alumumumumumuminum, it's okay for the twins to do the same to me? Don't be such a roboticist!"

Sockpuppet knew how to start spelling Aluminium, but not how to stop.

"The puberty upgrade installs at random," Sweetie said.

Oh dear. And how old is Ankle Sock again?

"Is there really a deluxe option for that upgrade?" Button asked, his voice quiet.

And that's when they learned Button Mash cared about one thing other than gaming.

You got me to laugh, Doctor. Well done.

*cackles* :rainbowlaugh:

I literally LOL repeatedly. Excellent stuff.

If she tells him more, Button may end up buying her the subscription himself (and experience no benefits).

That was demented. I love it.

That's the second fic about Sweetie Bot I've seen this week.

Nice story. Next: Scootalo installs upgrade into Sweetebot. Warranty voided. Also, why CMC didn't disassemble Sweetebot while trying to get roboticist cutiemarks is a mystery.

Brilliant and hilarious.

Where the heck are Sweetie’s and Rarity’s parents, anyway? Helping Chuck Cunningham find his basketball?

Sweetiebot has an inbuilt, automatic tree-sap and pine-needle dispenser to discourage these kind of behaviors.

:moustache: So what about having foals?
:duck: She says they come extra through a separate catalog...
:unsuresweetie: Now to spring he big one
:raritycry: I'm too young for you to have foals! I forbid it!

:scootangel: Cool Sports car!
:applecry: It's got plenty of chrome and cup holders!

Buttons mum wont notice it amidst all of Button Mash's MMO subscriptions.

Actually, he can just tell her the truth, that this is subscription for a game set in reality, which helps socializing. Given Button's likely level of social adaptation, his mom will gladly pay for that.

Also, this is one of few types of situations, where subscription system is actually useful: if he isn't satisfied :rainbowlaugh: he can just suspend/terminate subscription.

"...you mean you'll leave the house more?"
"Sssssure?"
"Here take all of them!"

11377732
Or he tells her even more of the truth, ie. "my girlfriend is the one asking, also I have a girlfriend"

Alright alright I snickered. Twice. Have your updoot.

the teen tag is very literal

I never even thought of the combo buttonmashxsweetybot he's gonna push all her buttons eh

Well, that's one way to score a wicked big TV:rainbowlaugh:

Thanks!

Scootalo installs upgrade into Sweetebot

"Rarity, what does `F-U-T-A-D-O-N-G` spell?"

11377717
Probably true

11377881
Her plan from the beginning!

Rarity looked at the iPad again. "Honestly, FlimFlam is charging for subscriptions to things that ought to be standard. Twilight says her chariot charges twenty bits a month for the airbag subscription."

Yeah, but it's FlimFlam. You should've expected that. Seriously. :trixieshiftleft:

Admittedly, I never really understood the need to have robots be "equipped." I mean, sure, it makes sense from the human perspective, because arguably we'd benefit, but from the robot perspective, you have to ask--was the "equipment" really for it's benefit...or just so the humans could use it as a sex toy? :trollestia:

11377965
I got this idea from seeing some luxury car manufacturer (BMW maybe? Merc? Tesla?) recently start charging a monthly fee to use the heated seats.

11377969
Honestly, a monthly subscription to use the heated seats makes even less sense than doing the same for airbags. :rainbowlaugh:

"There's also super deluxe," Sweetie said. "You won't believe what add-ons that comes with."

I have the same issue spelling banananana.

11377579

No disassemble!

11377885

"Rarity, what does `F-U-T-A-D-O-N-G` spell?"

"It spells 'You are grounded for a month'."

11377965

but from the robot perspective, you have to ask--was the "equipment" really for it's benefit...or just so the humans could use it as a sex toy?

True, but saucy rumpy-pumpy over NFC (or through JTAG) just does not quite have the same je ne sais quoi

11378078
Maybe for the likes of you or me, but I'd imagine that'd be a real turn on for a robot. :trixieshiftleft:

Nice one :o) Nice concept, well written.

"wait, you mean you can just turn it off when you don't want it?" 🙃

For some reason I wasn't expecting that twist but it was really funny all the same XD

This is pure gold! :rainbowlaugh: It is quite possible that Sweetie Bot, as a teenager, could have planned everything in this way. :unsuresweetie:

oh, Twilight uses an airbag subscription.

Perfect sales technique there from Sweetie. Ask for something she knows Rarity doesn't want anything to deal with so that Rarity will bribe Sweetie with practically anything else.

11378525
She may need a dictionary update, but her Cunning Plans subprocessor is top-tier.

It's the IBM model of service where you pay $10K for a technician to come out and remove a wire to upgrade the performance of your system

I can see why this story has all the love it's gotten. Great work

Hey there's an easy way to tell when to stop spelling the yellow fruit. Its this thing they designed to stop you at just the right amount of na's. Its called for some reason, a character limit. Just keeping adding na's till it stops you. Bananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaanananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananaananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananananana.....and so forth.

At some point there will be a pirate copy of that upgrade for Sweetie Belle and then Rarity will have to look out!

Ah, the greatest hits from the internet's most infamous artist This Content is Not Available in Your Region
:applejackunsure:

Oh, that always sucks. It was ELO's "Yours Truly, 2095"1 (off of a really good album, Time), and Jefferson Airplane with "Plastic Fantastic Lover".

--Sweetie Belle

  1. "I met someone who looks a lot like you. She does the things you do. She's also an IBM..."

This was absolutely hilarious!!!
(Add to bookshelf)
We need more cuties Sweetie Bot fics

11377969
BMW but tesla has similar features

11377972
Honestly charging for safety features sounds horrifying. What’s that you’re too poor well I guess then if you get in a car crash it’s your fault lol

I don't know what the heck I just read but I'd like more please, this world seems amazing.

Some back-of-the-napkin number crunching says Sweetie it runs at an average of 2 MHz.
That's some effecient roboting.

I've read this out loud to make an audio version. I wasn't expecting it to have sexual references, I just hope Youtube won't be that sensitive that they will consider this lewd, like those clopfics I used to read.
