Still sad about the other stories, but I like where this Is going

"Good napping spot confirmed." construct additional pylons

Me likey! I think Bic Mac is my favorite to pair with Celestia. They make a good match. :trollestia::heart::eeyup:

Big Mac. :eeyup:
Insta-faved.

Ugh. Big Mac. //dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/eenope.png

SoS really got me disliking him. Far more than is really warranted. :twilightoops:
Gonna keep an eye on this one, but it will probably be a while before I can enjoy it. I'll keep my mouth shut until then though. :twilightsheepish:

2257152 Aegis Shield. Boom, explained.

$5 says he cancels this one, too

2257225 Why would SoS make you hate Mac?

Well-written, no obvious errors I could spot, very interesting premise...

I like it.
Please, sir; may I have some more?

2257265 if you wouldn't mind, i was wondering if you might check out what I posted in the comments of your "cancellation" blog.

Edit: 2257223 That is a perfect image to go with this. And the one in my head is even more adorable.
I like this pair quite a bit. *Faved*, *Liked*, *patiently waiting for more*

I would like this story more if I didn't believe that its purpose is to soften the blow that you canceled four stories, other than that great beginning.

Awwww... I like this one! Very nice indeed!

2257265 No no no, you have *NOT* earned that Fluttercry. People are annoyed with you for a very legitimate reason.:trixieshiftleft:

That is a :raritydespair:. Maybe a :raritycry: at most.

Oh lookie, I Play a few hands of cards and you've already blessed us with something amazing.

And you didn't disappoint. Yayifications! *Waits eagerly, tail wagging slightly in anticipation*

This looks interesting - but then I have literally read a story about a pony watching paint dry...:trixieshiftleft:

The heck? Why did the notification that this was posted only just now show up in my inbox? I was here more than half an hour ago. Oh well, again, I will be patiently waiting for t3h next chapter.

Meh... it's good I guess. Def not my thing though. I love a good romance, but this feels very "shippy" to me, and I really don't like "shipping" that much... plus I've never really liked the Celestia/Big Mac pairing, even when it's done in the romantic scene. It's never worked in my mind and just feels... false.
I might come back and read this story sometime... but then again I very well might not.

.......... Sweet Mother of Epona... Big Mac and Celestia? Good God I've been waiting for a long time for someone to seriously write a fic for the paring. Please don't mess this up... I beg you!

Not bad. Kinda felt like you were leaning more toward the Tell side of the Show vs Tell spectrum for a majority of the story. Although, since it is the prologue, I can forgive it for the most part. Additionally, since I can't recall seeing this pairing before, I tracking this one out of sheer interest.

Do you have a lineup of editors for this one, or are you doing it yourself?

Big Mac's saving that one for the ol' spank bank.:trollestia:

Nothing beats a good nap!

In Canterlot the Princess was always surrounded by scheming nobles, ulterior motifs, and cloak-and-dagger verbal fencing. I think you missed something there...

One problem, it's motives not motifs. I do have a concern though, I feel that the romance maybe happening too fast but since they haven't confessed their undieing love for each other yet I think you are good for now.

2257738 I see no romance yet, m'self. He gave her an apple, and she smiled at him. Not much, I don't think, haha.

2257759
That's why I said maybe... and to be honest I have never seen this ship done seriously before in fanfiction and I happen to like it so I am paranoid about it not being... well... done right. I do have to ask Aegis, what caused you to write for a ship that has never really been done before?

This is fantastic, i love Celestia romance.:twilightsmile:

2257768
Because rainbow dash always breaks her wings.
Because something always goes wrong with Twilight's new spell.
Because discord always returns.

Because writing shipping stories frightens me from a writer's perspective, and I've not tried to write one since my FIRST fim-fiction story over a year ago, "Watching Macintosh." I wanna make a serious go at this, and see if it can be done at all. I'm really very paranoid about it, so I'm approaching with caution. I don't really write clop, so there's no worries about it degenerating into that, but--- I worry that everyone will say "well that's a nice romance you've got there, Aegis, but what're you bringing to the table that's new, huh? Why read this and not the ten thousand other ship stories around here?" ...That sort of thing. :fluttershyouch:

I think they have a growing affection, but that doesn't necessarily mean Eros.

2257799
1 and 2) Only happened once. 3) Twice... ok now that is done.

Well you don't have to worry about that from me, I want to see this paring done right and I know that you are good writer. I want to see more, I want to read this. I wish you luck, and I will be here to keep reading.

This story's one of those guilty pleasures that makes you smile. Sometimes friendship and / or romance doesn't need words to express it. Excellent.

I like this story the way its written makes it very interesting.

Hmm, I've never seen a Big Mac/Celestia ship. Interesting. Keep up the good work.

ill have you know you have me sitting here hitting the refresh button every so often to see if you are doing a chapter 3 or not :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright::raritywink:

Mac/Celestia is an interesting one... as you write Celestia shes a down to earth, wants to get back to her roots, pony looking for a Prince Charming, which Big Mac certainly is...

As always keep up the good work and I eagerly await more from you. NAO!:flutterrage: :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

This story is so refreshing compared to the others that fill this site.

This looks like it's going to be a very enjoyable read. I rarely find a romance story that moves as slowly as this looks like it's going to, and it's very refreshing. The wording of it all is rather beautiful. It put's a rather detailed and easy-to-imagine image into the readers mind without without using too many descriptive phrases and adjectives to do so. For your second attempt at a fic that's just a shipping fic this is quite good, but then again I expect no less from you, good sir.

Commence read.

Alrighty. Now to see how this progresses.

The thought of Celestia lying in a stranger's barn, exposing her belly to the sun.:twilightsheepish:
It's so out of place and that's what makes it all that much more adorable.:rainbowkiss:

Went off to read a chapter in another fic and BAM, update.

2257842

He means that in fanfiction, 1, 2 and 3 are all so overused it not even funny :twilightsmile:

The crates hidden in the hay piqued her curiosity

WHATS IN THE BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX:pinkiehappy:

Oh, it must’ve been laundry day. She was usually in the royal courts all day running the nation, of course the servants would take her bedclothes then so she would have fresh linens in the evening. Hmm. Maybe she could find someplace else to nap. She sighed, aching in the eyes and ankles.

Doesn't she have a giant pillow bed thing?

Well, Aegis, obviously I'm going to keep going, but I do have something to say.

You really don't like writing Celestia, do you? Although I suppose that's the point of this story, as you've said before. Practice makes perfect, and as soon as it got to Big Mac it took off, but something just felt off about the first Celestia bit. I'm really sorry if this comes across harsh, so don't get me wrong, it wasn't awful or anything, in fact it was a great beginning, but it just felt a bit weird, like something was missing. I'm sorry if this sounds mean or unsupportive, I want you to keep going, and I'll read every word you ever post, but that was a really weird feeling. Kinda like my car starting up no problem earlier today, it just left me like "what the hell just happened?"

Again, I'm really sorry if this doesn't sound nice or anything, and all I can say is keep writing this damn story.

We need a new salute phrase to fit in with whatever story you do later!

Somepony's bitter.

I know, I just like to point out why those cliches are wrong in terms of canon. Of course he did forget about Pinkie being a psychopath, Celestia being a tyrant, and Trixie wuving Twilight.

2258033
It is adorable, and it shows something, she is very comfortable there. Animals don't normally expose their bellies unless they know that they are safe.

This chapter was noticeably better, Aegis. Defiantly improving in the Celestia aspect as you go, and the pacing is wonderful. Amazing job! :pinkiehappy:

Smiling broadly, she laid on her belly and watched it go. The tiny creature had pinpricks for legs, and a mouth so small it couldn’t bite a pony, bit it was still a living thing.

That's all I noticed!
