Archeology is a young mare's game. At least, the kind of high-stakes, blood-pounding, death-defying archeology popularized by Daring Do's novelized versions of her adventures. Still, even the more mundane variety is often a grueling laborious task, one best suited for young and limber bodies.

The question then, is how do you know when you're no longer young enough for it?

And, moreover, what will happen to your work when you stop?

The year is 0001 PC (post-Chrysalis) and it's the first Hearth's Warming for the Reformed Changeling Hive. There's just one problem; none of them have ever celebrated it before!

Luckily, if there's one thing changelings are good at, it's learning how to mimic something. It's just those fine details that are hard to get right without having ever experienced them firsthand. They should probably get a pony to drop by and evaluate their work.

Colgate is a pony of simple pleasures. She wakes up, goes to work, avoids whatever nonsense is plaguing the city of Ponyville today, and heads home, leaving better suited ponies to clean up the weekly mess.

Until one day she wakes up, and it is not tomorrow.

This begins a series of circumstances that will eventually culminate with a conversation with a star, a lifesaving mattress, several pieces of magical cutlery, a series of one-hit KOs, and a chase through the past and the future for the fate of all Equestria.

Just a normal Tuesday in Ponyville, even when the exact date is negotiable.


An entry in the Most Delightful Ponidox, written, rather experimentally, in first person present tense.

Ember doesn't even need to squint to get the effect.

This story is a sequel to A Kirin In Cardboard


After having learned of the joys and amazing potential of Cardboard Boxes for herself, Autumn Blaze decides that she must share this discovery with her village.

It ends with a declaration of war.


Written for the Quills & Sofa's "Expanding Universes" Prequels and Sequels event. This story is my extension on the original story A Kirin in Cardboard by TheLegendaryBillCipher. While reading Bill's story is not necessary to understand this one, it will provide some measure of context and you should just read it regardless because it is quite good.

Thank you to, basically everyone on the Q&S server for feedback, proofreading, and editing.
