Let me be your albatross, then.

After the changelings' failed invasion of Canterlot, Twilight tries to soothe some of Ponyville's rampant paranoia by casting a spell to prove there are no imposters hiding in the town. But her spell leaves her in an alien body, facing a mob of angry ponies who just don't believe her when she says she is Twilight Sparkle.

Or, at least, she was Twilight Sparkle, anyway...

I love it!

Twilight is best Changeling!

Very interesting story you got here. I love the 'X=Changeling' thing (writing one myself) so I'm looking forward to what you'll do with this :twilightsmile:

I'm always a sucker for the "Twilight becomes a/n x" fanfics.

Interesting idea I'll be waiting for more

This is amazing! Please, continue.

Fav'ed and voted even before reading. I just love those kind of fictions. I know they aren't the most original ones, but with the amount of fiction the fandom produce it's hard to be original these days.

I'm going to read later, but I'm sure it'll be good.

"Twilight becomes/is a Changeling" fic #51029375!

This fits rather well among my interests, dood.

As a side note, can someone answer a simple question for me?

When Twilight turns out to be a changling, the worst things possible seem to gravitate towards her; When Rarity turns out to be a changling, she gets sex.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with this, and why people think it's fair, dood?

I like it, very good style and interesting enter to promising plot

Though they consistently show blind obedience and devotion to their queen, to the point of fanaticism, they’re actually quite intelligent.

My internal prediction algorithms are predicting a 70% chance of Celestia being a changeling queen.

Great start!

Well if she encounters another Changeling, we'll know that she'll be safe. No Changeling ever harms another.

Wow, you people are insane. I'm trying to reply to comments and literally every 30 seconds I get notifications.
Edit: NOT THAT I MIND IN THE SLIGHTEST, CONTINUE BOMBARDING ME WITH DELICIOUS NOTIFICATIONS

My life is now complete. I have drowned in mustaches.

1498967
I've seen that! I haven't had time to read it, sadly. But the art is badass. I'll probably wait until I'm done writing SL to read it because I don't want to accidentally rip anything off. :pinkiegasp:

1498968
Isn't there one where she turns herself into a cloud or something?

1499071
Yessss
Beg meeee

1499091
OH YOU BET I WILL

1499099
I'm the original MC Parasprite, yo! Nuthin moar original than me!

Now I'll go check the 22 notifications I got while writing this comment... I don't know whether to rejoice or be horrified by the number of favorites I'm getting in such a short time.
I got a 23rd while I typed that sentence, ahahaha.

Thanks for all the appreciation.

hmmm, been done before but like I have said elsewhere, "Some ideas are like potato chips, you can't have just one" :ajsmug:

I would normally read the whole thing before commenting but this is almost 13k words! Perhaps you should have broken this first posting into two or three chapters?

Oh well, maybe there weren't any good points to break it off *shrugs*
In any case looks like I got me some more reading to do!

best x becomes a changeling story evaar! :pinkiehappy:

this is quite interesting, I look forward to more of this. :twilightsmile:

I think it's because in addition to being a changeling, Rarity is actually a robot like her little sister. Except Rarity isn't a normal robot. She's a changeling sex robot. Twilight is just a regular, depressingly ordinary robot with a huge brain, like Marvin the Paranoid Android. Everything bad happens to her because everyone hates her. Don't deny it. You all hate her. That's why she sits in the corner and rusts when Rarity is having changeling sex. Robotwilight hate.

1499130
:pinkiegasp: What does that make Luna?

1499141
Well there was that one time...

hey keep it up i love the story so keep it up:derpyderp2:

Trek rules. And besides, if I'm correct, Twilight didn't know she was a changeling and thus wouldn't follow the code. And if Chrysalis knew, I think she'd wake her Sleeper agent. Or Chrysalis could give commands to Twilight's sub conscious. "Would you kindly subdue your friends? Would you kindly open the gates? Would you kindly kill Celestia?"

1499148
You know, I thought about doing that, but it would have interrupted the flow. It's one continuous scene, so there really wasn't anywhere I could cut it without resorting to

:flutterrage: melodramatic cliffhangers :flutterrage:

well this was long and good and a bit of a change from other chengeling fics

Personally I am glad you kept this together as a single chapter. Longer chapters means that I've got something to read for longer rather than being left bored waiting for an update.

I like this story. Its interesting both in the conditions of discovery and what the possible results might be. I can't wait to see what happens in this.

The greatest story with ponies-are-actually-changelings was the comedy where ALL the ponies turned out to be changelings. That was so beautiful... the way it turned the absurd concept so utterly on its head and pointed out the flaws in such a cunning fashion.

That said, I shall be VERY harsh in my criticisms if you don't have a very good, well-formulated reason for this set-up.

And I am a master at logical plot analysis... especially Twilight's plot... mmmmm, dat plot... :trollestia:

Congrats on the feature box.

Heh, yeah.

If you need OC's, i can give you a bunch just off the top of my mind. They'll be all yours.

1499146
I bucking hated that one. The Fridge Horror in it nearly broke me.

1499188 I don't hate Robot-Twilight, she is my favorite pony, dood.

Wow this just came out and it's already this popular, nice job guy!:twilightsmile:
Love the story by the way.

1499230
Would you kindly have a nervous breakdown and make everyone think you're crazy so no one believes you when you say your old foalsitter is actually the queen of the changelings?
1499274
I could come up OCs on my own, but I want to interact with my readers a little. :twilightsmile:

1499310
There are so few good ones out there! Actually that's true of cliches in general. They can be the best stories, but only if you write them right. Ex: all the Cupcakes/My Little Dashie sequeripoffs out there. It's not the idea that's bad, but the way it's written...

1499313
I fucking hate short chapters of anything arghghghh

1499321
Fear not the dark unknown of the future, my son. I wouldn't write something as complex as this without determining how it would work first. :raritywink:

1499429

Exactly! Would you kindly . . . powerful phrase. Familiar phrase to Twilight?

oh. mmm... you can use my OC Storm Shadow.

1499440

Bioshock changling Twilight mashup? Hm... would Twi need plasmids? Oh bugger you lot have me pondering things now.

Wow this is great I can not wait for more.:pinkiehappy:

I have a possible picture for you:

She may not look particularly distressed, but she looks less like it's a gradual thing.

Status?
Curiosity: piqued
Favorite: commencing
Thumb: waiting...

could of left twi with her mane

I was pretty sure this was going to get featured from the moment you mailed the first version to me. This is the best "X is changeling" story i've seen, and it was a pleasure to preread. This story is going places. Congrats on the feature.

I'm curious. Is this one of those things were "X was secretly a changeling the entire time and never knew it", or "X was turned into changeling at some point.". I kind've hope it's the latter, because the former usually opens up a bunch of plot-holes if it's one of the mane 6.

My OCs name is Borderline hes a grey and black unicorn with a dark red secondary ^^ if you use him great if not ill still love ya ^^

1499703
Thanks. It wouldn't have turned out half as well without your help!

1499753
You'll find out... eventually... :pinkiehappy:

My OCs name is Borderline hes a grey and black unicorn with a dark red secondary ^^ if you use him great if not ill still love ya ^^


Im not sure if i already posted this and it derped or I posted this on a now very confused author's page who is now wondering why i sent him this... oh well what happens happens

Wow, great job! =O I really felt the panic and desperation, man! You got me right in the feels XD

1499239

Lol, Yeah, I finely read through all of it, extremely well done and very descriptive without breaking story flow. Though there definitely are limits, for the most part even the most bland or simplistic story can be made a work of art with proper imagery, or likewise a wonderfully thought out and intricate story rendered worthless by the lack there of. Your story has both a well constructed backbone and flesh to go with it.
Big thumbs up! :pinkiehappy:

As for why it was one big chapter I can see what you mean, its the same sort of issue that leads to many of my sentences becoming run-ons whenever I write anything.

But I think I could find a few places to make a couple breaks, I mean all three chapters would need to be posted together to make sure and hook a worthwhile hunk of readers while its still on the front page but I think you could place cuts around here,:

“Mayor Mare asked me to, ah... I... Aha!” The first page of her notes after her checklist now sat on top of the stack. Now she was prepared. “Mayor Mare recently came to me and requested that I help clear up some of the rumors surrounding the changeling threat. To that end, I put together a brief presentation for all of you.

“I’m going to assume you know nothing about changelings and start right from the top. There’s a lot of misinformation flying around out there, so you’ll probably be surprised. First things first: This,” she said as her horn lit up brighter than the soft purple glow that was holding her notes aloft, “is what a changeling drone looks like in its base form.”

and over here,

I shouldn’t have put that much magic into the spell! I forgot I have limitations! I’m not a goddess! Now I’m going to die and I can’t do anything about it! Oh Celestia, please don’t let me die! I should never have done something so stupid—

A steady stream of energy swirled around the unicorn’s body and materialized into a cyclone of bright green flames revolving around and around her. The tingling grew into a raw tearing sensation that quickly spread downward over her head and neck. The closest thing Twilight could think of to compare it to was having her skin slowly peeled off. She tried to scream; to let everypony else know there was something very wrong; but her body was as paralyzed as her magic was.

Tee-hee, anyways that's where I would put it, also if you don't already have a head cannon on how/why changelings need love see what you think of my explanation in my blog, hopefully I can get around to altering it soon myself as I have decided to write the story it contains and want to eliminate what now amounts to a giant spoiler not to mention thank the ones who did reply, anyways love your story, keep up the good work.
