About the author

Howdy! My name’s Krickis, and I don’t know how best to do this so let’s get some bullet points up in this bitch! :yay:

  • I’m a genderqueer girl because I gotta be difficult like that, and I go by they/them or she/her pronouns.
  • I write a lot about queer horses, mostly as part of my Who We Become series, and favor realistic romantic drama and hurt/comfort stories.
  • I also swear a lot, both in and out of stories, so maybe not the most kid-friendly person???
  • I reply to comments pretty obsessively. Comment on one of my stories and there’s a 99% chance I’ll reply!
  • I’m polyamorous and an admin over at the polyamorous discussion group, which is a great place to check out if you're interested in polyamory as an actual lifestyle (rather than just subject matter for shipfics).
  • I’m autistic and special interest these damn horses so much that I question if I have a life outside of them anymore :applejackunsure:
  • I hang out over at The Rabbit Hell, which is my Discord server, if anyone wants to drop in and talk there :scootangel:
  • Aside from Discord chats and Fimfiction groups, my inbox is always open, but I’m not terribly good at one on one conversations :twilightblush:

I’m glad to hear you’re so interested in reading more about Scootaloo, and I am definitely going to write a story about her road to self-discovery, which will heavily feature Rainbow. I always planned on it, and it’s been on my mind quite a bit lately. It won’t be the next story I write, but it’s coming at some point :twilightblush: The Who We Become verse is very much an ongoing project which currently has a number of loose plot threads like Scoots, and I do plan on addressing them all. When all is said and done, I intend for this to be a very big series.

And lol as a nonbinary trans person, I can most definitely agree with you about that being a better way to reply in that conversation :ajsmug:

Edit: Also just noticed you’re comment 100 on my userpage :yay: So that’s kinda cool :pinkiehappy:

Hey, I was wondering if you have any plans to make a story in your "Who We Become" 'verse featuring (pony) Scootaloo, who you indicated is likely trans (given parallels plus the fact that human Scootaloo is.)

Finding Home left we wanting two more stories. One was the story of Luna and Amber, which you delivered with In Pieces. The other was a story following Scootaloo and those around Scootaloo*, which for all I know you have no intention of ever writing.

* Notably Rainbow Dash, who jumped to the wrong conclusions and said something she thought would help but, after learning Scootaloo is trans, she worries actually hurt Scootaloo.

I'm not going to cut and paste an exact quote, but my memory is that Scootaloo asked about maybe not being a mare, Rainbow assume that bullies were telling Scootaloo she didn't count as a real mare (since bullies did that to Rainbow for reasons that basically boil down to "she was like Scootaloo") and said that Scootaloo was a mare and no one could ever change that in attempt to be reassuring, not realizing that Scootaloo (probably) wasn't thinking about bullies picking on her for not being girly enough but instead (probably) trying to come to terms with realizing, or at least suspecting, that she wasn't supposed to be a mare.

Footnote is longer than the entire rest of the comment, so obviously I should respond by making it longer still.

~ * ⁂ * ~

If anyone ever finds themselves in Rainbow's position, there's isn't some magical correct answer, but the gist of what you want to say is that the only person who can say someone isn't [gender] is that person themselves. Whether they're a boy or a girl is entirely about them and their identity. If anyone else is saying, "You don't count as [gender]," then that person is an asshole who should be ignored if possible (it isn't always), but if they themselves are thinking, "Maybe I'm not really [gender]," then that's ok and you'll support them regardless of whatever conclusion they then reach.

Not as pithy and punchy as, "It doesn't matter what anyone thinks, you are and will always be [gender]," but it does stop you from, you know, pulling what Rainbow Dash did and hurting someone you want to help.

I suppose the short version is, "The only one who knows whether you're a girl, a boy, or something else is you. If other people are telling you you don't count as what you are, don't listen to them. If, on the other hand, you realize trying to be a [boy/girl/other] isn't right for you, that's completely different and there's nothing wrong with that," but that's something I came up with on the spot, and pretty wordy for a short version, and stuff.

Having asked my question and then dispensed advice that no one asked for or wanted, I shall go now.
