The ancient one



[What if story of the events of Unexpected Changeling: what it means to be loved.(reading not required) Quick warning to those who have been reading the Unexpected changeling fic. This fic contains some future concepts for that story. Just throwing a heads up, this does contain spoilers for it.]

So Celestia and Luna have a new nephew! That's great! Now all they have to do is let Shining Armor know he's been a dad for about five years, deal with the fact that his kid's a changeling, and restore power to the queen who attacked their city! There is no way this could end badly!

Lol he eats meat. :pinkiesick::twilightblush:


Thank you, the art is by Dopple.

is it the end of unexpected changeling.


No, seriously, why does everyone ask me if I'm ending the series :applejackunsure:

2323666 because people love the story.


That blurb just smacked me across the face. :twilightoops:

Men interesting story, I think I liked this one better, here Variant has a lot more freedom and is bond to die. I want to see were this is going.

And Celestia never answer, why he can't sleep in her room? It was her idea, and her responsibility there for. There is no reason why she should drag Luna in his decisions.

Well at least, Celestia has no excuse now, Variant will sleep in her room

I have to say that I like where this is going. Didn't read the other story, but other than that...
It's written pretty good! Simple, but also not too complicated and filled with details [as I do a lot with my work]. There were a few parts, mainly in the beginning, that could have used a lot more [doesn't really know how to explain it and has spent a few minutes thinking about it] reaction from the main character, Variance. Like, miniature monologes, except they are the character's thoughts on the situation at hand.
I don't think I know exactly what I'm saying, but then again, I think way too hard sometimes. Great job though!

This 'What if...' version of the story its actually more interesting than the original one.
The original one isn't bad or anything, it's just that i can't come to like the 'evil Variance' ending
But this one seems to be pretty cool
PS: pony meat... :moustache:


It hasn't ended yet, there's a lot more to the story than that. Variance has a lot more to go through before the series ends.

cant wait for the next chapter

This is actually pretty good!:moustache::heart::rainbowkiss:

Sorry it took so long. Some things happened and, let's just say I took my time with this. I was also lazy.

well it is time too see what your made of can you pull this meeting off or will you fuck it up.
what emotions will you use and how will you use them it is up to you to decide.
and it is up to use to judge.
can you handle the stress and come back stronger then before?
or will you crumble under the pressure?
kikikikikikiki we will soon find out i can taste it kikikiki:pinkiecrazy:

Great chapter, the lighthearted tone here was pleasant and Variance is showing to be an interesting character. I look forward to the eventual meeting of him and his father (and his mother in law).

My only concern here is that you made Twilight accept him a bit too quickly. Even with Celestia vouching for him I think she'd at least be wary. I mean she did attack him on sight, so changelings are probably labeled "enemy" in her mind. Its nice when everyone gets along and all, but a little bad blood can be interesting.

That being said, don't worry about making us wait. We're just glad it's still going at all and most of us understand one can't simply force quality writing. Also, life should take priority over ponies.


People often confuse kindness with acceptance. I don't. She has her feelings and her reservations, she just isn't going to be rude to crying colt.

BRAVO GOOD SIR! BRAVO! *Applause * :moustache::pinkiecrazy::heart::ajsmug::applejackunsure::rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild::raritystarry::trollestia::eeyup::twilightblush::twilightsheepish::twilightsmile::pinkiehappy:


2315785 I know right lol this is so hillarious yay I finaly spelled hillarious right the fist time:pinkiehappy::yay::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

“This is wrong on so many levels...”

“Tell me about it.” Luna said, standing next to me..


How's this, after I publish the first episode of my short serial, I'll update this. Sound like a plan? :pinkiecrazy:

I'm confused a bit but, it recovered from those play acting scene.

When I'm not feeling confused, I quite like this fic. ...which is quite the contrast to the original. I can't remember why, but I gave it one of my rare downvotes. (Usually, if I actively dislike something, I just leave it unvoted as my way of saying "neither up nor down... just middling")
