Charcoal Quill

Does he even write stories anymore? Geez, what a flufflenugget.


Twilight Sparkle had been looking forward to a quiet, relaxing day with a friend, and at first it seemed that Fluttershy could provide just that. But when Twilight makes a rather unsettling discovery about the pegasus – and her unusually sanguine appetite – the knowledge proves to be anything but relaxing...

“Fluttershy! She’s the gentlest pony I know. If I’m just going to see her, then what could possibly go wrong?”

Aaaand, you jinxed it.

This deserves a feature, an animated version, and a musical version. Quite easily one of my favorite one-shots I've read.

Also, it would appear I have the first comment. Achievement unlocked. ~yay~

Ok. This is brilliantly written and is just plain weird. I love it.

Wow. This was actually really good readin'. :ajsmug:

This is a pretty cool take on this. Very nicely written too.

This was fantastic!

My only complaint is that the stare IS WEAPONIZED KINDNESS.

Not some vamp thing.

But overall great!

Fine story; definitely worth more attention than it currently has :twilightsmile:. It's tense with all it's questions about Flutters, yet undeniably cuddly in it's execution. Like, how the whole town is perfectly fine with taking care of her and putting up with her condition. It makes for a clever basis for your little non-judgmentalist message. I do find the whole bit with Rarity accusing Twi and Fluttershy of going out quite unnerving, though. I don't know about you, but I don't believe she would seriously view her friends that way (especially when it's fairly obvious that 1-on-1 time doesn't mean romance). Although, it might have been a way to link homosexuality into the message as well, in which case that was quite clever if heavy-handed.

Oh wow, that was good. Really good!:pinkiehappy:

Fantastic, loved it. Fluttershy as a vampire was very believable and I could buy Rainbow Dash willing getting feed on for her friend.

Wonder what the Princesses feel about it. Probably fine considering the Elements worked even with Flutters as a vamp.

This story is well done you've got the cast the way they should act
This should be cannon really this is good someone who makes the show should see this my only complaint is this line

Come on, Twilight, hold it together. “I mean, you’re only a vampire. What’s the problem?!”

Half way thought the story I thought she found out she was a vampire

Lovely. Quite funny at times, and contrary to Yacob's concerns, I thoroughly enjoyed the shipteasing. The only real flaw worth mentioning is that some of the asides and footnotes got a bit distracting. They did contribute a bit to establishing Twilight's voice in the narrative, but they broke up the flow of the story a bit too much to be worth it. Still, a lovely tale. This is getting a slot in my Criminally Underrated Stories board.

(Edit: Okay, a slot on the Underrated Stories board is apparently uncalled for. Congratulations on the feature!)

Great story and congrats on the feature box

This was rather enjoyable. I have a hint of trouble seeing this as an episode, but it's rather decent for something of that type.


And that's all I have to say. FAVED


(Of course, I knew what the words themselves meant – “I”, indicating the timid, butter-yellow pegasus who now sat in front of me, wearing an expression of mild worry, and “vampire”, meaning the undead, bloodsucking fiend in pony form. It’s just that when faced with making a connection between the two images, by brain simply threw its arms into the air and said, “Screw this, I’m outta here,” leaving the rest of me to sit there in numb bewilderment.)

Best part. Hands down.

This reminds me of a certain hemomancer I know....

Oh god, those horrible blood puns...

This story is wonderful, inst-fave:heart:. and now the quote of the day:

“C’mon, it’s obvious! ‘Twilight Sparkle’? If that name doesn’t scream ‘vampire’, I don’t know what does!”

"Fourth Wall" crack, standard Pinkie Pie. Don't know how I did not see it sooner, 'Twilight Sparkle' dose scream 'vampire'

Not bad. You really nailed the characters, nice work, but as is usual for this type of fic Twilight seemed a bit quick to 'forgive and forget'. It just seems a bit cliche, even if it is what ponies would do. Humans might be judgmental, wary and bigoted but ponies are all sunshine and rainbows.

Fantastically done. Minus the alcohol references, I could see this as an episode.

Also, Garlic Flank Stake is best TF2 expy.

Dashie likes being bitten and having her blood sucked? :twilightoops::pinkiegasp::derpyderp2:

Also, thanks for making me crave pasta :twilightsheepish:

Very good read, thoroughly enjoyed it. :rainbowkiss:

Ha ha, nice one-shot. Loved it.

And Spike had to have the whole thing explained to him as well :moustache:

i was expecting some stupid parody of some movie
but this was really good
excellent job
you have my upvote

That was brilliant, nice original story. Doesn't resort to Twilight nearly killing Fluttershy or something silly as that. Brilliantly written, definitely upvoting and faving this gem of a story. :pinkiesmile:

do you have some vampire hunter series in the forging ?


And now because of that story image I can't help but imagine a Belmont fighting through the hell of Dracula's castle only to find Fluttershy :facehoof:

you gonna do a sequel?

throughout the entire story there was 2 questions i had. did spike know? and did celestia know?

GREAT story btw

A very funny and cute story that was episodic in nature with the lesson that it's more important Who a person is rather than What that person is. You captured the characters personalities really well, both flaws and qualities, and I particularly loved the switching of perspective in and out of Twilight while at the same time following an investigative narrative style for the first person parts. Something I found a little lacking was the fact that Twilight didn't try to make up with Rainbow Dash, so they're confrontation felt lacking without a conclusion, and also that she never apologized to Fluttershy for having spent the whole day making a big deal out of the situation which feels like what would have really happened if this had been an episode of the show.

I'm not too big on Slice of Life stories so my inner desire for a more engaging and fantasy-esque storyline left me disappointed with the end, but the story itself was well written and fun so you more than earned my upvote. Bravo~

...Anyone else think of Spongebob when they saw the title?

so hilarious at the end!!!!!!!!! :rainbowlaugh:
i would've reacted the same wat though :pinkiecrazy:
oh andim in a clean white room cuz dey took meh away HA HA!!! :pinkiecrazy:

At last, somebody else who knows what a Nucklavee is.

Also I appreciate the use of Stoker's myths on vampires, but he also mentioned transformation into clouds of mist and packs of wolves as part of the standard vampire powers.

“When Fluttershy starts sucking, it feels… weird, but in a good way. At first, it feels all tingly and nice, and then I start to feel a little numb and dizzy. But she always stops before it goes any further.” She smiled faintly.

That's What She S-....
NEVERMIND, :rainbowdetermined2: said that, so NO.
By the way, I really like your Style!
You just earned an insta-fav.(Coz of my otaku-side personality), a like and a new follower! A nice 20G achievement for Xbox 360!

This was awesome and interesting. Though I would have liked to have seen it turned into something more serious and longer. But other than that real good story. :twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

P.S. Loved the little "Twilight" joke. :rainbowlaugh:

this story is now my favorite of all time, since that cover art is Epic, the story was well written and vampire fluttershy is best vampire!!:yay:

That was great...

That was an amazing story! Cute and well written and not going in any of the bad directions I had been expecting.

And I felt bad for Big Mac, as I can guess at why the issue was painful for him.

I can only imagine Celestia's reaction to Twilight's letter.

Celestia: "Twilight, I already knew. I thought I'd told you."


Am I the only one who got the Castlevania reference on the cover art?

The blood is not a lie.

“What kind of romance novels have you been reading?”

Pfft, what every mare has read. Fifty Shades of Neigh.

Awesome story. Hope you make a sequel!

Dat cover art.

A wonderful, engaging, hilarious, moving story. And this gets added to my Favorites for the first use of "feels" in dialogue that didn't have me cringe.

That was pretty good! I must say, I didn't know what to expect when I first saw this, but it is a really well written story! The idea is very creative, and having a wise Pinkie Pie along with beinga slight fourth wall-breakeris always good. Have a nice score of 9.0.
