From 5 to 3333. We've come a long way, haven't we? >>3060 >>3061 >>3062 >>3067 >>3075 >>3089 >>3093 Cockafright https://ponepaste.org/4086#4046 "Hey..." You begin while reaching over to rest a hand on Notaulix's withers. "...I know it's scary to think about, but you should realize that now we're going out as a team, we have a major advantage against the cockatrice." You continue. "We do?" Notaulix questions as he looks back up at you in surprise and confusion. "What do you mean, Anon? What kind of advantage?" He then asks. "As far as its ability to petrify goes, it can only focus on one thing at a time, as far as I know." You begin to explain. "Let's consider the worst case scenario: If one of us did happen to become petrified, the other could run back to Ponyville and get help." You continue. "You should know from the book that this kind of petrification usually isn't a permanent thing; an exceptional magic user can often reverse it, among other ways. So, that isn't so bad, right?" You conclude. "I don't know, Anon... It would be better if nobody became petrified." Notaulix says, sounding very unconvinced. "Well, that's the idea." You agree with a chuckle. "If I easily avoided it twice, you can too." You add, hoping to encourage Notaulix. "What did you do when you encountered a cockatrice, Anon?" Notaulix asks you. "I looked away." You simply reply. Upon hearing your response, Notaulix simply stares up at you for several seconds with a blank look on his face, before tilting his head slightly to one side. "The moment I saw the cockatrice and recognized what it was, I turned my head away from it, and walked away. That's what I mean about having a plan in your mind before it happens. You want it to be a reflex." You elaborate. "Oh, that's all? Really? Doesn't the cockatrice want to chase you?" Notaulix asks. "Hasn't happened to me. Don't think it would, either. In my opinion, I think the whole petrification thing is just a defense mechanism for the cockatrice." You respond. "A defense... mechanism? What do you mean by that, Anon?" Notaulix asks. "Think about it logically; the petrification doesn't serve the cockatrice any good beyond disabling whatever it perceives as a threat. It can't eat the statues it makes, as far as I know." You explain. "I've never seen any damage done to the petrified critters that I've found, at least." You then add. "Hmm." Notaulix hums as he brings a forehoof up to his chin in thought, while his ears slowly begin to relax and raise up once more. "See? It doesn't seem as bad when you think things through, right?" "Yes, I guess you're right, Anon." Notaulix agrees. "There we go. Just continue to study these things and think about how you should react." You recommend to Notaulix. "And remember, I wouldn't be having you study up to begin with if I didn't think you couldn't handle yourself out there." You conclude with words of encouragement, while also reaching up and scratching behind Notaulix's ears, much to his joy. In no time at all, your changeling companion is back to his usual self, with perky, upright ears and a more relaxed demeanor. "Thank you, Anon." Notaulix says once you conclude the ear scritches. "You're welcome, Notaulix." You say in response. What do you do next? 1: Talk about something else 2: Examine your new boots 3: Fold and put away your laundry 4: Start washing your underwear 5: Other
>>3336 >New thread >New update Hell yeah. Maybe ask him if there's anything he's excited look for out there. Something to look forward to instead of being scared of everything. Also should examine boots at some point.
(166.56 KB 700x583 1544219062594.png)
>>3336 Oh boy update. How I wish we could do every option. What time of day is it anyway? Time might affect things but discounting that, I'd say 2>3>4. Although, no big conversation to get in the way of that but we can also ask Notaulix if he's recovered from trying to use magic on the saddlebags, and about his love reserve. Hell I'd like to have a whole 'nother love-related conversation again but chores should probably come first here, not that I expect them to be very exciting.
>>3336 I'll let the dice make my decision this time
2 + 1 = 3 (1d3+1)
I'm going with #4 perhaps some saucy stuff could occur with such a thing
>>3336 First things first, wash the undies.
>>3336 4 is probably what we should do to give enough time for the laundry to dry. 2 is what I want to do.

>>3336 >>3338 >>3348 >>3409 >>3427 >>3435 Scrubbing Bubbles https://ponepaste.org/4086#4071 Look! An update that didn't take me a week or more! Following that, you share a moment of silence together, lost in your respective thoughts. Though as much as you find the moment relaxing, you know there are things that you should be doing. "Well..." You begin while giving both of your legs an audible slap. "...if that covers everything you wanted to talk about for now, I think it's about time I get up and take care of my chores for the day." You continue. "Okay Anon. Thank you for helping me." Notaulix says as he scoots back, leaving you plenty of room to get up. "Sure thing." You say as you rise up from the sofa. "Remember, just keep studying, and try to have a plan in mind for everything, one thing at a time." You recommend before walking over to the fireplace. "Thank you, Anon." Notaulix responds while watching you put another piece of wood on the fire. "Do you need any help with your tasks?" He then asks you. Pausing for a moment, you consider his offer before responding. "Nah, it's just some laundry folding and other stuff. There's not much to help with, really. Thanks for the offer though." You reply with a smile of appreciation. "Okay." Notaulix simply says before getting snuggled into place under his blanket. Leaving Notaulix and the fireplace behind, you make a stop by the front door, in order to free your feet from the confines of their boots. Once your feet and free and comfortable, you walk down the hallway and enter your bedroom, where your first task in the form of a pile of clothes on your bed awaits. Folding all of your freshly cleaned clothes is a job that you take your time with, finding it somewhat relaxing on a day like today. Before too long, the messy pile is transformed into neatly folded stacks of shirts, pants and socks, which you then take the time to put away in a small dresser placed up against the far wall. Upon putting away the last of the folded clothing, you take a moment to gaze out at nature from one of the windows in your bedroom. With a sigh, you depart from your bedroom back out into the hallway, ready to tackle the one chore that you're really not looking forward to: Washing your underwear. Walking the short distance down the hallway, you enter the bathroom, leaving the door partially open behind you as you walk over to a vanity of sorts, which is built around the sink. Bending down, you open up one of the cabinets underneath. Reaching inside, you pull out a wooden bucket, which contains a small washboard and a bar of soap. Next, while waiting for the bucket to partially fill up with water, you grab hold of the woven basket that you use for your dirty clothes and deposit it by the shower. Once the bucket is filled to the appropriate level, you haul it over and place it in the shower. You then take the lid off of the basket and turn it upside down, dumping all the underwear contained within onto the floor. Finally, with everything in place, you roll up your sleeves, kneel down on the floor, and get to work. A far cry from the washing machines that you were once familiar with, you diligently go through the motions of soaking, soaping, scrubbing and rinsing, one at a time. While not an overly difficult job by any means, it's a monotonous one. Still, it needs to be done, even if there were other things you would rather be doing. Regardless, you carry on scrubbing away as the minutes go by... At some point after you've lost track of time, you look over your shoulder as you hear the sound of hoofsteps drawing near. "Anon?" You hear the voice of Notaulix call out from behind the door, shortly followed by the changeling poking his head inside. "Do you need a moment in here?" You ask Notaulix, pausing your work. "No, not yet... I was just wondering what you were doing, Anon. You've been in this room for a long time, and the noises being made are strange." Notaulix explains. "May I come in and watch what you're doing, Anon? I-If you don't mind!" He then adds.
Ask him if he really wants to watch and if so let him in

>>3447 >feet and free I think that's only the second or third typo I've spotted myself. We can probably be blunt and outright state we're cleaning our underwear. If it didn't come up back when we were talking about why we have an extra bit of clothing specifically for our dangly bits (and I don't think it did) we can just note that area tends to be even more sensitive than the rest. I don't exactly see anything wrong with him sitting around watching us wash boxers and/or briefs, but I don't see a reason for him to do so either. Little awkward. On the other hand, we could use the opportunity to bring up something I've been wondering about: When the saddlebag strap needed to go under his dock, he seemed genuinely confused as to why he shouldn't let us touch back there. Similar candid-ness to him wanting us to look at his butt when he was a gryphon. Maybe ask him what he's used to or feels about, concerning that whole subject? Guessing the hive didn't exactly put much stock in personal privacy, and all of Equestria tends to be naked most of the time.
>>3449 That bug looks huge. Just how much does that unit weigh? On a side note, we need to purchase Notaulix some socks
>>3449 Why is bug big? Oh shi...
>>3447 Tell him that you're washing your clothes, he can come in but it really isn't that terribly exciting.
>>3452 Thigh high socks perhaps?
>>3447 >You've been in this room for a long time, and the noises being made are strange. Kek. Maybe Notaulix will like watching laundry being done. Keeping Anon company. >>3452 >That's what happens when you overfeed a Changeling love

>>3552 >>3571 IIRC towards the beginning of the fic, Notaulix is described as being anorexic from starvation. Can't imagine he's put on very much weight yet.
(2.90 MB 1920x1920 1546450878042.png)
>>3581 Probably not, though QM also described him as being a teeny bit stockier than a regular bug (which is roughly mare-sized, so still smaller than a typical stallion). But yeah, probably pretty skinny.

>>3582 Did I? Do you happen to remember where that was mentioned? I'd have to double check my stuff to confirm if it was already established or not, but Notaulix is supposed to be a fairly big boy as far as changelings go, being slightly taller than the average stallion. Somewhere between average stallion and Big Mac, probably on the lower end of that scale. His size isn't that evident right now because of his severe malnutrition and weight loss though. We need to continue feeding him well so that he can bulk back up. ^:) >>3612 >>3623 I really like this. Full size Chryssi plushes make me think of the lucid dream I had involving her many years ago. >>3615 You >>3447 >>3448 >>3449 >>3462 >>3470 Tighty Whities https://ponepaste.org/4086#4098 I'm having a lot of fun with this update; it's a big one too. Hope you guys enjoy it. Are you bad enough dudes to delve into the DEEPEST LORE? "Well uh- I... I'm just washing some clothes." You blurt out. "Nothing interesting to watch, really." You add. Notaulix simply stares at you, gears clearly turning in his mind before tilting his head in confusion. "Didn't you just get your clothes washed in Ponyville, Anon?" Notaulix questions you. "I..." You pause for several drawn out seconds, suddenly feeling a bit embarrassed and stuck. "Well, yeah. I had everything done except for these." You say while gesturing at the bucket that you're working over. "Just, these uh... My underwear." You finally spit out. "What's an underwear, Anon?" Notaulix quickly asks with keen interest. Scolding yourself inwardly for not just closing the door before you got started, you can't help but let out a heavy sigh, which Notaulix picks up on. "I'm sorry, Anon! I-I can leave if you don't want me bothering you..." Notaulix meekly says, partially retreating back out of the doorway. And just like that, you immediately feel bad. Not wanting to put a sour note on the day, you begin to weigh your options. While you may be bothered by the forwardness and strange questions of the residents of this land, be it pony, changeling or any other race, regarding things that you consider to be private affairs, you know that it isn't their fault. Because in the end, you know that you are the strange one, not them. You're the exception to the norm, a mystery, an anomaly; one that shouldn't exist. And yet, here you are... After weighing your options, you conclude that one way or another, Notaulix was going to end up seeing your underwear, either now or when you would go to put them up to dry. Prompting the very questions that he is asking you now, no doubt. With that in mind, you decide to swallow your pride and simply get it over with. "Hey, I didn't mean anything like that. You can come in and watch if you want. I don't mind, really." You reassure Notaulix. "O-Okay." Notaulix says before pushing the bathroom door open further and taking tentative steps inside. Returning your attention to your work, you continue scrubbing away. Shortly after that, Notaulix appears at your side before sitting down next to you. "These are underwear?" Notaulix asks, pointing one of his forehooves at the undergarments in question. "Yep, they are." You respond. "What are they used for?" Notaulix then asks. "I wear them. They're a common, everyday piece of clothing for my kind." You answer. Upon hearing your answer, Notaulix alternates between looking at the underwear and eyeing you up and down. "They are? But Anon, where do they go? I have not seen you wear anything like these... Do they go on your head for a special occasion?" Notaulix eventually asks, clearly confused. 1/2
>>3653 2/2 You can't help but laugh and smile at Notaulix's silly question, which only furthers the changelings confusion. "They don't belong on the head!" You respond in an amused tone. "They go underneath the pants, here in this area." You say while vaguely gesturing at your pelvic area. "Really...?" Notaulix says, sounding somewhat unconvinced. "Look." You say as you take the current one that you're washing and hold it up. "See? The legs go through here, and this part here holds onto the waist." You explain before putting it back into the bucket. "Oh! Yes, I get it now!" Notaulix happily announces. However, his expression quickly returns to one of puzzlement. "But... What purpose do they serve, Anon? Why do you need to wear a piece of clothing under more clothing?" Notaulix questions you. "Well, they just..." You trail off as you catch yourself. The reality is that really just keep the goods thoroughly supported and chafe-free, but you really don't feel like outright saying that. After all, things are already awkward enough as-is. "...help keep me warm and comfortable. Do you remember when you asked me about clothes a few days ago? How we wear more or less depending on the temperature around us?" You continue. "I do remember! I think I understand now Anon, thank you." Notaulix says, the lightbulb finally going off in his head. "Even if I do understand, it is still very strange to me, Anon." He adds not long after. "Yeah... I guess I am kind of strange, huh?" You say to Notaulix with a smile, prompting him to smile in return. With that, you continue your task of washing for several minutes uninterrupted while Notaulix sits and observes, allowing you to get most of the underwear done before his next question arrives. "What is that tool you are using to clean the underwear, Anon?" Notaulix asks. "This is a small washboard." You say as you hold up the object in question. "You rub things made of cloth up against these ridges with soap and water to make them clean." You explain. "I see. And that basket? You store your clothing in there?" Notaulix asks, pointing a forehoof at the basket in question. "The ones that I've worn or gotten dirty, yes." You answer him. "Oh. Now I understand why your scent was so strongly attached to it, Anon." Notaulix comments. "What? Have you been over there smelling my dirty clothes basket?" You question Notaulix with furrowed brows as you turn your head to look at him, unsure of if you should be offended or weirded out right now. "I haven't laid a hoof on the basket, Anon! In fact, I have stayed away from it." Notaulix reassures you. "It is easy to smell whenever I walk into this room." He begins to explain. "Since it was strongly marked with your scent, I knew it belongs to you and is important. It would be very disrespectful to handle something marked without permission!" Notaulix concludes in a very matter-of-fact way. "Alright then..." You say, expression softening as you return your focus to your work. As you do so, you begin to ponder what Notaulix just told you. More specifically, this thought of something being "marked" by scent. When you think back on it, you remember Notaulix explaining to you that changelings supposedly have a very sharp sense of smell, but now you wonder just how extensive that sense is. "Anon? I almost forgot! If you just had the rest of your clothes washed in Ponyville, why did you not have these washed with them?" Notaulix asks you, interrupting your thoughts. "Uh, about that..." You pause as you consider how to answer your changeling friends question. How do you respond? 1: You prefer to do it yourself 2: You forgot to bring them with you 3: Dodge the question 4: Regale Notaulix with the tale of "The Incident" 5: Other
Also, are you guys doing alright? Feels a little quieter in here after the new thread was made.
>>3654 1 or 4 >>3655 Good. Thread's activity changes a lot since they're aren't a huge amount of people around, but the average speed seems a lot higher than some points during the first thread.
>>3655 The real life's been killing me, otherwise I'd probably be a bit more active in several threads.

>>3653 >Do you happen to remember where that was mentioned? Pretty sure you said it directly to me when I asked in a post over 5 months ago or so. Sadly it's a little hard to find it now. Anyway, damn what an update! As much as I'd love to candidly tell him about 'the incident', we ourselves have no idea how big a deal that was. I'm sure other Anons will jump straight for it though. Either way we can go with 4>1 or just 1 by itself as my vote. Would still like to bring up that topic from my last post though: We previously talked very very briefly about what nudity meant for a human, and Notaulix didn't seem terribly embarrassed about the idea of us eyeballing his rear end, so I'd really like to know what's 'intimate' for a changeling. There's honestly a lot I want to talk about our lovebug with but only so much time in a day. >>3655 It goes in spurts, in both this thread and last thread there would be multiple days of no posts, and then a dozen or dozens in the same day.
>>3654 Voting for 4 >>3655 Still good.

Bug wishes he could have a normal faggot relationship without a bunch of weird kinks. Just regular kinks.
>>3654 I find it kind of funny how sensitive Anon is about his undies. Voting 4 because I want to hear about "the incident" as well. Do you think Anon will come home one day to the sight of Notaulix in a pair of his tighty whities?
>>3680 I don't think my own pair would contain my throbbing poner if that happened.
>>3653 >>3654 >>3680 Also yeah it's pretty silly how embarrassed our Anon gets over some subjects. Maybe it's just me having so many doctor visits and such but when essentially talking to an alien about both societal norms and biology I'd probably go the whole scientific matter-of-fact way of talking about it. "Human genitalia is among the most sensitive parts of the body, and combined with prior talk on taboo and intimacy, is always the first thing covered up." and all that.
>>3654 I pick somewhere between 1 and 4. I'd really like to learn the story behind The Incident, but I doubt Anon's too keen to disclose it to Notaulix.
>>3685 I am going with this guys plan for #5 other
On one hand I feel bad for missing two updates, but on the other, it was a pretty fun read! As much as I want to know what was the incident about (though I now have an idea, with their ability to detect "scents" and whatnot), I think the best option is to tell him something on the lines of that it's a human tradition to wash your underwear yourself.
>>3680 >>3685 Uh oh. Is Anon acting irrationally, in your opinion? Do I need to rewrite that part? It's kind of a big deal to me. >>3756 Glad you're having fun Anon. I'm really curious, what do you think the incident was? Are you implying that another changeling was somehow involved? Anyway, with the current responses, I'm locking us into option 4. I was hoping you guys would go for it. I've been waiting for this since I dropped the hint way back This next update is going to be a bit special. Since it's going to be the retelling of a past event, it's going to be delivered in one shot; a big update that will also be the one to push BuggyCYOA past the 100k words milestone. Because of that, it's probably going to take me several days to write it all out. I'll try really hard to get it out as fast as I can. I hope that's okay.

>>3784 >Uh oh. Is Anon acting irrationally, in your opinion? Do I need to rewrite that part? >It's kind of a big deal to me. He's acting consistently, which may be more important. It's just funny how flustered he gets about these subjects, since you'd think it's mostly the kind of thing fictional characters get all weird about. Then again, I vaguely recall that for quite a period, doctors in both the Americas and Europe put out a public statement saying some sexually-related disease or illness (or injury?) had a second less embarrassing cause just to get people to actually come in and get it treated. Wish I could find what it was again. Anyway, godspeed Anon, I'm already anticipating the next delivery of wordsmithing. And as for our red-cheeked player character, maybe it can just be his own bit of character development. He does seem to have his own mind separate from the ideas we force through him. It's part of why I'm curious how a romance would ever develop in the first place because we don't know what our own vessel thinks about the subject.
>>3785 Man I hate having to be an entity within another's mind
>>3785 What I mean by it being a big deal to me, is that I'm trying to be extremely careful to make Anon be as "normal" and level-headed as I can manage, within reason. We've all seen the portrayal of Anonymous as the goofy, over the top funny man who frequently acts in silly, unrealistic ways and always makes sure to to cum inside Rainbow Dash at the end of the day. In contrast, I've always viewed Anonymous as more of a blank slate to place yourself in the shoes of the character as they go through the story. He's you, the reader, or whatever you want to imagine him as, be it his name, ethnicity, skin/hair/eye color, etc. Because of that, I try to present Anon as if he could be just some guy off the street, who was living a relatively normal life with a sound mind, who ends up being thrust into a magical yet alien world, who tries his best to adapt. I want it to be as easy as possible for you to step into that mans shoes. Because of that, if Anon appears to behave really abnormally about something, that's not good in my mind. Personally, I don't know anyone who would be comfortable with having someone you've barely known for a week just sit and watch you wash your underwear of all things. I tried to express that feeling. I don't know; bit of a ramble and some insight into my thinking. Hope it makes sense.
(129.69 KB 650x620 1612407802939.png)
>>3791 Yeah, it makes sense. Funnily thinking about it again reminded me of ye olde classic scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ves37rxXwgI In retrospect yeah it's probably normal for him to be a little anxious around his new roommate, particularly if he's the kind of guy worry about stepping on toes with societal norms and hasn't opened up to any ponies yet. It's a nice little contrast to his partial semi-grizzled woodsman day life anyway. I suppose there's plenty of regular people who get antsy about doctors poking around their junk after all. I'm just the autistic outlier. And several of the other Anon's really want to tongue but hole. Not that I can't respect their desire to get the bug into our bed sooner rather than later.
>>3784 >Is Anon acting irrationally, in your opinion? Do I need to rewrite that part? It's perhaps a little odd but maybe not quite irrational. It's at least consistent with how he's been in the past, similarly caught up anywhere near Notaulix's rear end. >Because of that, it's probably going to take me several days to write it all out. I'll try really hard to get it out as fast as I can. I hope that's okay. Looking forward to it Anon.

>>3844 Aha! The gravity he puts into the incident does make me wonder what the hell it is. Only guesses are either some kind of gross stain or the concept of underwear itself. Maybe ponies are the ones with a taboo about underwear? Either way it sounds like we'll be wondering for a few days. See you when we see you QMAnon!

New fimfic chapter is up, for those who enjoy reading formatted stuff. What do the rest of you Anons think the "incident" was? I'm really curious to know. >>3847 I really hope it lives up to the hype and is at least somewhat enjoyable to read. I'm a bit nervous about it since it's a little break from the norm thus far.
>>3848 >What do the rest of you Anons think the "incident" was? Everybody at the wash wanted to try on Anon's funny hats since he has so many of them. They even come with build in earwarmers.
>>3847 Ooooooohh >>3848 I haven't the foggiest, but I take it it's going to be due to some cultural misunderstanding of some sort?
>>3850 >Everypone at the laundromaut danced around with Anon's underwear on their heads. >Then found out they're normally worn over his junk. No way that ended well, particularly when you take into account that underwear for humans is also designed to catch any seepage. It'd be perfectly in line with the show though, considering they made a visual gag out of Pinkie wearing a diaper on her head.

Just was thinking about my own prompt while taking a break from writing when this appeared in my mind >>3333 >>3335 >Everypony thought the Changeling invasion of the Royal Wedding was one of purely selfish motivation >Power >Fame >Control >To completely dominate the land of Equestria >The truth was a much harsher reality >Queen Chrysalis was old >Very old >Unlike the Sisters of Sun and Moon, her life wasn't blessed to last indefinitely >As were the lives of the Great Hive Mothers before her >The older she grew, the more love she needed to sustain herself and her hive >The very essence of life to a Changeling >The very essence they had lacked in recent years >In truth, the Queen cared not that her time was drawing close >No, for she had lived a full life >She had taken lovers, reared many clutches, and lead each of her offspring to success >She had watched the races of the land settle towns, which grew into cities, which burned to ash in time >She had known pain and pleasure, joy and sorrow, failure and success >And yet, even though she may have been satisfied in years, she did not wish to die yet >She could not >For the sake of her hive, her little nymphs, her precious ones >Queen Chrysalis knew that if she was successful, her life would be assured for at least as long as her spouse lived >Another clutch could be reared >Those little ones could also experience life and all the simple joys that it offered >For their sake, she tried >Though try as she might, she had failed >As was engraved in the record of history >In the wake of her failure, in some forsaken land, all she had left to experience was the cold ground beneath >The mighty Queen laid there, alone, awaiting death; her broken body watering the ground with her life essence >Yet, she was not, nor angry, nor fearful of what awaits her >No, for in fact, she was happy! >For she, Queen Chrysalis, had tried >She had done everything she could >For their sake >Because she loved them

So I was looking at my stats for BuggyCYOA on fimfic. It's really interesting to get a feel for how your story is being received. Especially in regards to how well the first chapter is able to "hook" the readers. You can see the huge drop in readers after the first few chapters, but it balances out to roughly a 1 in 4 reader retention rate. No idea if that would be considered good, bad or normal, but there it is. One anomaly that I notice is how later chapters have more views than previous ones. Do some people just decide to skip ahead chapters when reading stories? Seems really weird to me. Another anomaly that I notice is in the form of the referrals. Namely: >profile.cheezburger.com It made me laugh imagining someone having an account there of all places linking to this story somehow. In other news, what has happened in the past day or two? It's suddenly extremely dead on this board. We were consistently getting 30+ pph during the peak of the day for many days in a row, and now it's nothing. However, I've also noticed the same drop in activity on /mlp/. It's like the bulk of the initial G5 spammers got bored of spamming, and now nobody really wants to post besides bumping their thread off of page 10.
>>3922 >Do some people just decide to skip ahead chapters when reading stories? I think there's some people who just start reading the newest stuff. >It's suddenly extremely dead on this board. Activity can change on a dime here, some days it's just dead, it's probably gonna spike back up soon enough.

>>3922 Yeah that is very normal as far as I know, fimfic browsers are a weird bunch. Lots of picking stories up mid-way for no reason, not returning to stuff even if they like it, etcetera. >In other news, what has happened in the past day or two? Just like the last four months, it comes and goes in waves. Every so often an actual topic of discussion comes up and it gets discussed and eventually ends and then nothing happens until the next one. Even the gayest cumslurping horndogs get tired of posting about bug assholes sometimes. That's how it be with low usercounts like we've got, and both /mlp/ and nhnb aren't exactly growing much (if at all). Hell, most bug-related discussion I have to bring up myself is just my weird headcanon and OCs and there's a finite amount of those and I'm autistic about bringing them up un-prompted, so I fall into the 'waiting for someone else to start something' camp. My new tablet is arriving tomorrow though, so small possibility of future draws?
Yeah from my experience forum activity can die on a dime i wouldn't worry about it to much people will return. Everyone craves our little bug boy.
>>3922 >You can see the huge drop in readers after the first few chapters, but it balances out to roughly a 1 in 4 reader retention rate. No idea if that would be considered good, bad or normal, but there it is. One anomaly that I notice is how later chapters have more views than previous ones. Do some people just decide to skip ahead chapters when reading stories? Seems really weird to me. It's fairly typical for stories to have a drop off in viewers after the first few ones. Some just want to check in a few to see if is to their tastes, then drop off afterwards. As for the latter, that can be explained as well, perhaps readers seeing if the latter stuff is up to snuff or not. I do this sometimes with stories to see how the writer is progressing, see if has anything I want or don't want, in which case I skip it. I wouldn't worry too much about it for the time being. Just is what it is.
>>3922 >In other news, what has happened in the past day or two? It's suddenly extremely dead on this board. It's highly variable. Maybe people's busy days just happened to coincide. >>3925 >finite amount of those Can always brainstorm together ^:) >Chryssy's day off Maybe she pretends to be one of the princesses for the day to have the royal guard give her the royal treatment. >What would changeling pranks be like >What superstitions do ponies have regarding the detection of Changelings? Which ones are right and which are bogus? >>3926 You'll always have me. >>3928 There's also the PonePaste version, some people could be switching between the versions.

How differently would BuggyCYOA have progressed up until this point if Notaulix was a female bug? Would there be little to no change, or would people be trying even harder to get the bug into bed?
>>3980 I don't know if Anon would be more or less embarrassed by a female changeling's rear.
>>3980 Good question, I was the first one to start pushing for the romance but I probably wouldn't have with a female bug, but I imagine there's still enough horny Anons around to have wanted it regardless.
>>3980 Probably the same but with more hornyness.
>>3925 What sort of tablet? I've played with the idea of getting one for digital art for a long time. Whenever I finish writing BuggyCYOA to its conclusion, inb4 never, it might be a good time for me to get one, just for a change of pace. I don't think I could handle writing out one large, long term story and immediately jump right into another. The burnout would be intense. >>3942 >Superstitions You know, I've never really thought much about this subject before, but it's a good one. I've usually thought of ponykinds general Bug Avoidance Program™ being more factually based rather than superstitious. Maybe the pony folk who live in the more remote and rural regions of Equestria have a thing or two? Hanging chimes with holes drilled in them around the home? Painting the mailbox yellow? Staring battles before you let strangers into your home? There's a lot of fun to be had on the subject. >>3980 The world will never know ^:) Unless...
>>4031 >I've played with the idea of getting one for digital art for a long time. I would say check for them at yard sales and pawn shops. I see them for sale often enough, got a reasonably nice Wacom for like $20.

>>4031 I'm insane and am getting a 24 inch screen tablet to replace the old worn one I borrowed from a friend years ago. I don't know what experience you have drawing but you should honestly start with paper, that skill carries over to digital better than going digital to traditional. And of course always be drawing, no matter how shitty. Napkin doodle a day helps you a ton even if it doesn't seem like it. >>3942 I wish I had already thought of something concerning the superstitions stuff, since that'd likely lead to some nice writing ideas. Fly paper and bug spray is probably the easy go-to, I'll need to think of sillier and more elaborate ones.
Here's a late night quickie about pony-changeling superstition. May not be the best. >You were a delivery man for the Ponyville post office. >Lean, green, and Anonymous, the ponies there thought you were the perfect candidate to deliver a special package. >One going out to some village in the absolute middle of nowhere. >Hoofstop village, way out in one of the swamps that border the Everfree. >It was a long and arduous voyage but the thatch roofed huts were slowly coming into view. >As you walk you notice one of the inhabitants walking down the road coming towards you. >"Hello there!" >You shout and wave your hand in a friendly manner. >The pony notices you and drops the basket that she was carrying before dashing off back to the village. >"How odd, ponies here must not see outsiders all that often." >You continue on, grabbing the basket as you past it figuring you could be nice by helping return it. >Entering the village proper you are suprised to see not a trace of anypony. >"Hello! Is anypony there? I've got a package for the mayor. I also picked up this basket that one of you dropped." >With a large thud tribal drums began to beat from somewhere above you on the rooftops, causing you to drop the basket. >"Hello!?" >The drum beats continue. >You look around for anypony, the noise filling you with a sense of unease. >Soon strange figures started to emerge from between the huts. >Ponies unsteadily walking towards you on thier hind legs, arms outstretched in a T shape, they wore masks on their faces depicting unnaturally happy expressions. >"I've got a package here!" >You hold it above your head but the ponies pay it no mind as they continue to advance. >"I'm just the delivery man!" >You look around for any escape but they wholly surround you. >Getting closer you decide to make a run for it, try and break through the line. >At least that's what you intended to do, instead you slipped on a mud puddle and feel flat on your back. >The ponies descended upon you. >"Ahhhhhhhh!" >You shout as they pile on top of you completely blocking your vision. >Eventually you feel them pull off of you. >You cautiously open your eyes. >The ponies are now standing normally with masks down, starring at you intently. >One of them steps forward. "So you're not a Changeling after all." >"Huh?" "You past the test." >"Is that what all this" >You gesture with you hand >"was all about?" "Yes. If you were a changeling you would not have been able to keep your disguise in the face of so many hugs." >"Do you do that to all visitors?" "Only the ones who seem suspicious." >"And I'm suspicious?" "We've never seen someone like you before, you also gave miss Meadow quite the fright." >She motioned to a pony peeking out from behind the crowd. >The same one you saw on the path. >She waves sheepishly at you. >"I see." >"Well anyway, I've got this package for the mayor here. Is she around?" "Yes, that's me." >"Well here you go" >You hand her the box. >"Out of curiosity, what's in the boxto require such expedited shipping?" >The mayor begins opening it up there. "A mail order changeling revealer. Does exactly what you'd expect." >"So the hug ceremony not working out?" "Oh it does, but you can't be to sure out where we are." >She pulls an amulet looking thing out of the box. "Alright everypony, looks like it's just this button here to turn it on." "Are you all ready?" >The crowd eagerly nods. "Here we go." >She then presses the button. >In a great puff of green fire, everypony present turns into a changeling. >You feel like you could cut the tension in the air with a knife.

>>3980 I don't think it couldn't work, but it surely would be a different story. Females have a different nature that of males, and it's very likely her role in the Den of Evil and her method of gathering love would be different. There would be some sort of sexual tension going from the moment Anon noticed she was a female bug. The threads would have a considerably larger number of followers because the romantic aspect of the story would be naturally more prevalescent, and the story would fit perfectly on the savior fantasy that is extremely popular on CYOAs and greens. However, this also means there would be a ton of coombrains raiding the threads demanding that every action of Anon and every update would be directed towards reaching the bug cloaca as fast and as often possible and that would suck.

>>4037 That's huge. Pretty cool stuff, I hope it works out well for you. >>4038 >Anon then realizes that he's still obligated to bring to attention the Bits On Delivery for the expedited shipping >>4043 This is exactly the reason why I made the decision for Anon to find a male changeling. Even so, I still underestimated the amount of people who want that bug butt. or bug dick? Bug balls? Of course, that doesn't mean that there won't necessarily be any female characters introduced down the road who there may or may not be the opportunity to romance. Just so you guys set your expectations correctly though, if romance actually does become a thing and begin to develop in the story, I'm not writing any coombait. I learned my lesson regarding that with SunnyCYOA It'll be real, slow burn romance. You better be ready for that saucy hoof holding and staring into each others eyes, closely followed by hugs. On a side note, one thing that was both funny and telling was when Gilda was introduced. There were one or two Anons who immediately wanted to put the moves on her. Anyone remember that? On another side note... >Den of Evil I'm curious; based on what you guys currently know, do you think that the changelings of this particular story are evil? Are they actually not? If so, why? Same goes for Notaulix, I suppose. Is he really a nice bug, or is he just taking advantage of Anon? And finally, take a look at pic related. We've made it, BuggyCYOA has surpassed 100k bugwords. Crazy stuff to me. I never would have dreamed 7 months ago that I would be writing so much again.

>>4047 >I hope it works out well for you. Me too, starting with me hoping I measured my desk space correctly. >It'll be real, slow burn romance. As I've been saying from the very start when I started trying to steer it down that path, that shit's exactly what I want. That bug will be KISSED at the right time, romance takes effort. Course I don't know how adamant the extremely horny Anons will be about it, but no one's actually tried to slip anything into an actual prompt yet purely for us not quite being there. >Are changelings (and Notaulix) evil? Notaulix seems downright sheltered and childlike, which may be a facade, but I get the sense he genuinely doesn't know a lot of stuff. I would imagine changelings in this 'verse act mostly out of desperation (why take the chance of making friends when you can drain love by force?) under Chrysalis and have been at it so long they don't really know how not to be that, while probably painting all their enemies/prey as the bad guys to justify it. Their physiology is not parasitical in nature, more symbiotic-turned-parasite. It brings up the point though that our Anon should really start taking notes and learn as much about changelings as he can.
>>4047 Considering he was stuck in a deathtrap when we first encountered him, as well as the fact that he didn't tell us that keeping his transformation up and switching rapidly was making him tired, I don't think he actually knows enough to properly manipulate someone. In regards to being evil, don't know enough to draw a conclusion. Notaulix isn't however. Ponies are convinced they are enemies so anything that their books say about them has to be taken with a grain of salt. It's a psychology thing, in order to convince yourself that it's ok to harm a certain group without giving them a chance you have to dehumanize them.
>>4052 >Considering he was stuck in a deathtrap when we first encountered him, as well as the fact that he didn't tell us that keeping his transformation up and switching rapidly was making him tired, I don't think he actually knows enough to properly manipulate someone. Possibly. It all depends on what our quester/author's plans are going into the future. It may yet be that this is all cunning trap design to rend our defenses down by our own hand. It could also be that Noxy is genuine in what they are. In either case, it presents interesting intrigue for us to work with, and in turn for us to help assist in providing more material for the writer/creator of this quest to work with. After all, this stuff is somewhat of a cooperative effort after all. Perhaps even a green or two from our own hands can influence the outcomes of things, or perhaps not. Thus far, it seems Notuaulix is genuine, but seeing as they are changelings, who knows what precise interpretation of lore the author is willing to go with. Thus far, we have a biased account from the equines who have many good reasons to fear em, and only one sum total of a changeling. Not much of a sample size to be honest. In which case, we may have to confront Notaulix eventually with what we know, but how we do it may affect whether we can gauge the truth or not from him, not to mention affecting our relationship with him. Going on a bit of the meta, my current view is the author is of the mind to let us have our happy, naive, innocent bug to play around with. But if he is dastardly and cunning, we could find ourselves in for a rude awakening. In any case, I have a few ideas of my own on how the quest could unfold as a creative myself, but I'll hold them in reserve for the time being to see how it goes for just a bit further, and to see if our dear quester is receptive, if only in some non-canon prose or green. I.E: Role reversal via some ancient magic totem or some old spell circle design to swap species of two given individuals, and allowing us to get the uptake on our buggo boy. Or fumble around in a most helpless manner. In any case, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

>>4047 >Anyone remember that? "Why, being curious about the Everfree Forest can only mean she wants Anon's alien cock!" >do you think that the changelings of this particular story are evil? Not evil per se, but I suppose they're all taught that they NEED to deceive ponies to survive, because the ponies hate them and will hurt, imprison or even kill them if they find out their true selves, and that their queen would be mercilessly hunted if she was found. Of course, the reverse also applies: every other race is taught that they are vicious monsters born to kidnap, do God knows what with their victims and replace them. So I think they aren't trustworthy, but they have their reasons to be like that. I don't think Notaulix is trying to fool Anon, though, as Anon is an alien to the ponies, just like he would be. Unless it's fucking Sherlock (the shitty 2017 series) plot where Notaulix was just a bait and his allies were just waiting to free him if no one came to his aid, he's genuinely thankful for being saved and pretty naive himself. But as his speech at peetzer time showed, he doesn't think too high of the ponies. Maybe Anon should address that at some point... if I'm right, of course. And when Anon thinks he's ready.
>>4057 It just felt like she wanted friendship and convinced herself Anon would be able to understand her. She wasn't wrong about that.

>>4047 >bug romance I'll admit I'm always vouching for hugging the bug and giving him belly rubs when the opportunity appears. Not sexually, though. >changelings being evil I think they see everyone else as wither potential prey or potential threats, so the better word would be hostile. Unless Notaulix is faking it all (which is possible but I find it to be extremely unlikely), he's more like scared (a lot due to what he saw griffons doing with their eggs) and resentful towards the other races. However, as a drone, he doesn't seem to overthink things too much... I mean, he saw griffons stealing, smashing and potentially eating their eggs, yet he doesn't have any sort of mental block to transform into a griffon. >>4057 lol I love that pasta
>>4097 How warm are bugs while cuddling?
>>4204 Depends on how much love they are receiving.

>>4215 Internal body heat would be higher. So it might be better or quicker to have the food cook inside him.
>>4216 A lot. Changeling love magic makes it sound like you can easily create an almost infinite energy source.

>>4052 You're not thinking big enough. How do humans think about carrots? Do they hate them in order to justify destroying their entire body by eating them? No, they don't care, because all most people care about is that eating plants is normal and there's no point bringing morals into it either way. What if changelings felt the same way about ponies? They thought of other races not as fellow sapients or subhuman-equivalents, but as smart plants. Sure, you can like them as people, but if you get so attached that you can't take advantage of them, you'll starve to death and so will everyone else who agress with you, and the next generation won't have that problem. Then you don't need to hate ponies to eat them to death, just not specifically like them. It doesn't seem like it's going that way (which I think makes sense), but strictly speaking ponies don't even need to hate changelings. Again, do people specifically hate wolves or bears when they kill humans? No, because there's no point in expecting large carnivores to occasionally try and eat people-meat. Just like there's no reason to expect changelings to not try and eat pony-love. Sure, you might not like them, and you might go to great lengths to keep them out, but it's not malice, just apathy.
>>4321 Sounds like a decent explanation for possible changeling behavior.

>>4321 There is that angle, and hell it comes up a lot in fiction, though to further your eating-plants analogy it's more like they haven't developed farming and agriculture. You could wade through the woods picking berries to eat or you could just plant your own berry bushes and keep them alive and healthy for better berries.

I can't really contribute much with my perspective, since I'm trying to avoid giving you guys any spoilers or any misconstrued ideas about what's going on in the world of BuggyCYOA. Still, it's enjoyable to read through stuff like this. The changeling race feels like a nearly bottomless well of creativity that can be tapped into, doesn't it?
>>4273 >tfw when you will never wake up only to have your bugbro ask you to stay in bed, as he goes to the kitchen to make breakfast for you, watching out your door from the bedroom, as eggs sizzle on his rear with cheeks gripping the toast as he goes around the house, waiting until he finally walks back into the room as he finishes cooking, presenting his polished black butt with fried eggs on his cheeks, and toast between them for breakfast in bed.

Only being given bits and pieces of information on changelings really helped with that creativity, since the author has to fill in those blanks, and each author might make something slightly different from the other.

I present to you: Happy Notaulix snuggles on top of you* on the couch as he cooks a hot dog while some of the juices run down between his hind legs and eventually drip off of his sheath. - 1132 Solar Era(Colorized) *Note: Anon is not present because this was already enough of a trainwreck and I didn't want to even attempt to draw a human figure I hate to admit that I spent like an hour and a half on this, with most of that time spent trying to cope over being unable to make smooth lines with a mouse, and trying to figure out how to do certain things. No bully, I genuinely made an effort at what I think is baby's first digital art. Can't remember ever seriously trying to draw something like this in the past. Anyway, now you know why it's a good thing that I have no art skills, for this is what the depths of my mind contain.

>>4341 >>4342 Faggots, I said no bully. That's the last time I draw for you; I'm sticking to writing. The mouth is fucked because I drew that side first and wanted to do a simple gradient inside, but couldn't figure out how to do it the way I wanted to at first so I tried making one manually, which was a mess. I could have gone back and changed it, but I didn't want to spend any more time on something that was just supposed to be a funny shitpost.
>>4345 I jest, it just seemed an appropriate response to a most cursed shitpost. I can't draw for shit with a mouse. Keep up them napkin doodles.
>>4345 >something that was just supposed to be a funny shitpost. It was plenty fun we were just having a bit of fun ourselves ^:)

Alright, knowing I could easily improve this has been bugging me, so I went back and fixed the nightmare fuel. Now the bug is just sticking his tongue out at (You), and significantly more cute(hopefully). I'm not actually upset over anything, by the way. I'm just playing around with this. >>4349 I was inspired by >>4273 and the associated discussion. My interpretation is the changeling can focus the "love heating" anywhere on its body, but you have to get creative with the anatomy available to best cook certain things. In the case of the hotdog, I could only see a few plausible options... 1: In the mouth 2: Stuck into leg holes 3: Stuck on horn 4: Between the cheeks 5: Up the ponut 6: Up the sheath I thought about doing hotdog up the ponut, but I decided against that since it would be a bit over the top and too lewd. Meanwhile I have hotdog juice running down the sheath Imagine the possibilities that a female changeling would present though! With that extra slot, you could do all kinds of serious cooking. Have bug lay on side, then push piece of bread into bug pussy, sausage links into ponut, and crack an egg onto the flank. You'd have a complete breakfast of toast, sausage and egg ready by the time you're through with a quick snuggle, topped off with a fresh glass of bug milk to get your day started right.
>>4349 So how would you cool him down if the action started getting too hot?
>>4353 Buckets of ice
>>4352 >You'd have a complete breakfast of toast, sausage and egg ready by the time you're through with a quick snuggle, topped off with a fresh glass of bug milk to get your day started right. Sounds lovely
>>4352 >I thought about doing hotdog up the ponut, but I decided against that since it would be a bit over the top and too lewd. Darn Though that gives me a thought, a ponut would probably be great for baking since it keeps all the heat in like an oven.
>>4353 I'd say ice cream but that'd get real messy Though messy might be good
>>4352 Nice >bug milk Now what would that taste like?
>>4340 >>4352 that's hot literally
>>4356 Imagine trying to bake a cake in there

>>4358 Changeling milk and sperm is special in that each bug produces its own unique flavor, usually resembling a fruit or nut of some variety. Rumor has it that the Queen's own milk is like sweet honeydew and is as rich as heavy cream.
>>4352 He better be carefull with the amount of sausages he puts in if he uses his ponut, he might not be able to hold all that juice in.
>>4363 Nice
>>4364 >Notaulix decides to fry several sausage links in his ponut, deciding to put more than usual for a bigger breakfast >He realizes a bit too late that he put too many in to fry as his ponut slowly fills with juice, though brushing it off and continuing to cuddle/cook >Though soon after, he bolts up off the couch feeling his ponut quickly starting to give >Struggling trying to not spill hot oil and sausages as his ponut is on the verge of giving, spurting and leaking juices occasionally as he tries his best to keep the hole shut the best he can
>>4368 >spill hot oil Anon's gonna have am awkward time explaining how his house got burned down.
>>4369 >House burns down because your changeling bro accidently spills butt sausage oil Yeah that'd be something Hope he has enough control to not spill too much at once that'd cause a fire
>>4363 Can these flavors be affected by what they eat?

>>4368 >>4369 >Anon has to explain to his insurance agent what he meant by "Anal Discharge" being the cause of the fire
>>4363 You could sell it as an expensive delicacy
>>4360 How'd that work? Just pour cake batter in? Definitely be an odd shaped cake, and anon might have to hold his ponut shut if it ends up rising too much.
>>4368 The idea of anon blankly looking at Notaulix as he shuffles around desperately trying to stop oil from spurting out of his butt is a bit funny.
>>4376 >>4377 Sounds like he could use some sort of stopper. Almost like a plug of sorts.
We're on to something here bros, this is the fastest any /bug/ thread has moved in a long time
>>4379 Whenever discussion veers into bugbutts the thread ends up going lightspeed compared to normal.
>>4378 What could sufficiently keep it shut without being pushed out or melted? Possibly some type of heat cork plus tape could work. Though pressure build up might just make him go off a bit like a champagne bottle.
>>4381 Maybe something expandable? Pear of anguish style?
>>4381 >Though pressure build up might just make him go off a bit like a champagne bottle. Yeah, plugging might be a problem, not sure how much stuff would build up in an oven that has no way of ventilating anything out.
>>4382 that'd probably stay in, though I wonder what it's limit would be, cause whatever's in there is always going to be trying to force its way out
>>4384 It'd be like a pressure cooker, just needs a release valve. Just be wary if he starts to swell too much.
>>4381 >>4382 >>4383 >>4384 >>4385 I think this is the wrong train of thought to be pursuing here. It's a funny mental image, but building up any kind of pressure through steam or whatnot and then blocking it would be a really bad idea. That pressure is going to go through the path of least resistance, likely resulting in the poor bug rupturing something internally and probably dying as a result. If sustained even heat is required, you would think putting a pot of whatever on bugs rump and boiling that externally would be the way to go.
>>4381 yeah there's gotta be some type of opening so cooking inside is probably best without a plug
>>4386 Best to let him blow the steam out his ass as it sounds off like a constant high pitched whoopie cushion
>>4376 It would work exactly like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpoDNPnQW0s >"H-Hold out your plate, Anon! It's almost... HMMPH! It's almost ready!"
>>4372 It works that way in real life, I don't see why it wouldn't be the same for changelings. >>4375 This just gave me another idea for a drawing. I swear you guys are going to make sure I never get any writing done again and only draw things Speaking of, was the second version of my drawing an improvement or not?
>>4389 fucking made me spit water
>>4390 >was the second version of my drawing an improvement Yes
>>4389 Heh.
>>4386 No plug it is He's gonna have to try and control his ponut through that pressure in only letting steam out, and not accidently throwing everything out
>>4390 >Speaking of, was the second version of my drawing an improvement or not? Yeah, I'd say it was an improvement.
>>4388 Imagine hearing that across the house while in bed
>>4389 I'm ded
>>4352 Eating a full breakfast cooked to perfection off of, and out of a changeling sounds like a great breakfast in bed.

>>4389 I was thinking deeply about this thread while laying in bed last night, when I suddenly remembered this meme machine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbSmtnXb-wg Realistic ponut cooking simulator. Your food even automatically expels itself, just like the real thing! >>4396 All I can think of are those tea kettles with the harmonica plugs in them. >>4403 Imagine being married to Queen bug and all the King sized breakfasts she could loving make for you with all the extra room she has, being a bigger changeling and all.
>>4404 >The queen cooking an entire feast on and in herself, with food stacked all the way from her horn to precariously between her butt, with all her holes, legs, ponut, and bug-gina, filled with different foods That's gonna be one breakfast
>>4404 >this meme machine Not too far off. Though a ponut will definitely be better.
>>4404 How large would a queen sized ponut or horsepussy cake be? Which of the two would be bigger? Assuming you filled her to the absolute limit with batter where she can barely open either hole without batter coming out.
>>4407 By sheer volume of cake? Ponut, easily. It would be like a giant snake. The only way the bugpussy could really compete is if you went down the really bizarre road of Chryssi somehow filled up and stretched out her uterus to cook and pop out a "cake egg" of sorts. But that's really getting into Magical Realm™ absurdity, in the same style as pressure cooker strength ponuts. I like the original simple idea of localized magical high body heat the most. You can actually imagine it being a thing, strange as it is.
>>4404 >Tea kettles with harmonica plugs Well now I want to try multiple different types of instruments on and in his butt while he's shooting steam to see what they sound like
>>4407 Ponut would be bigger and better
>>4410 A cake big enough to be fit for a king.

>>4413 Just a little brainstorming session. You're welcome to join in ^:)
>>4404 Imagine a cooking contest between the queen and a team of changelings for who can cook the most using their ponut as quick as possible.
>>4415 Would it be possible to make a normal shaped pizza using only a changeling? Seems like trying to make one in a ponut or bug pussy would be impossible. Sounds perfect for calzones though
>>4415 Is that an apple slice on there?

>>4416 >Shokugeki no Soma but it's changelings >>4417 Much like boiling a pot of water, you would need a pizza oven attachment for your bug, like pic related. >Have your bug lay on its side in a comfortable position >Place oven over bug and adjust height so that it makes good contact with the bugs side >Wait patiently as your bug heats the oven up to the desired temperature >Headpats, scritches and kisses are recommended during this time >Once at desired temperature, insert pizza into oven >Remove pizza when desired, let cool and enjoy >CAUTION: Oven will remain hot after your bug has finished heating it >Use hand protection when lifting oven off of your bug >>4418 Yes. Apple on pizza is all the rage in Equestria.
>>4420 Ah, a pizza oven attachment, that'd work, calzones not requiring any attachments seems like an advantage for quick cooking
>>4420 >Much like boiling a pot of water, you would need a pizza oven attachment for your bug. You could probably get away with using their ponut as a pot, assuming whatever your cooking can somewhat fit. Something like a tea, or soup shouldn't be much of a problem as long he doesn't accidently spill it from either being overfilled or unprepared when steam escapes out.
>>4363 If changelings have milk, what is changeling cheese like?
(84.92 KB 670x406 12938389143.png)
>>4424 It's full of holes
>>4425 as should be expected
>>4424 If their milk tastes fruity I'd assume their cheeses would also taste fruity.
>>4421 A freshly cooked calzone right out of a ponut would be pretty nice. And since a changeling can still do stuff while cooking, you could put it in right before you start a hiking trip and have a fresh one, or multiple ready to eat when you stop or take a break.
>>4429 Ponut cooking seems great for a picnic
>>4432 That and being able to grill on them also sounds great for cookouts.

>ITT we discover that changelings somehow make better kirins than kirins themselves
>>4434 Love energy is some strong stuff.
>>4434 there's gonna have to be a changeling vs kirin cookoff of course with several categories, like cooking speed, and how much one can cook at once.
>>4436 Definitely has to be one for how many sausages you can cook in your ponut without dropping any.
>>4434 Which can reach a higher max temp?
>>4436 Changelings would probably be better at baking.
>>4438 Krins use a lot of fire, so i'd assume them on average
>>4409 See how loud he can play the butt trumpet with some steam
>>4449 Wonder if any far away pony would hear that blaring horn .
>>4449 Might wanna be carefull, and hope he doesn't push to hard and make a boiling water spout with using a trumpet. And it'd probably be good to wear ear plugs.
Well, now that our initial fun and excitement over changeling cooking techniques has simmered down, let's go back to the subject of BuggyCYOA for a moment. I really had a lot of fun with that rapid bit of activity with you all. Reminded me of the old days. Regarding looking over a preview of the next update/chapter, anyone who is interested can message me on fimfic, or I could just link it here I guess. Right now, my main source of concern and writers block has been with the introduction of the chapter. This one is a little different from the norm because it's partially presented as a flashback, which makes me anxious because I know that flashbacks can be a quick way to make a story shitty if they're not handled well. I know exactly how I want the bulk of this to go, but the writing out the transition from present time to the beginning of flashback has proven difficult for me. That's why I would appreciate anyone who wants to take a look at it. All I'm really concerned with is if it reads smoothly enough to remain as enjoyable as the previous chapters. Basically, I want it to feel cohesive and build a little upon Anon's backstory in Equestria, and not just a jarring speedbump if that makes sense. How I'd like to do this is have the intro portion looked at, and if that proves good I'll finish the rest to have the full chapter up for preview before it goes live.
>>4463 >or I could just link it here I guess yeah that'd work
>>4463 I have enough faith in you that it won't be shit.
>>4463 It'll probably be fine, you haven't disappointed us yet.
>>4463 >I really had a lot of fun with that rapid bit of activity with you all. Reminded me of the old days. Same. Time will tell when the next bout of odd changeling related discussion like that comes up again.
I just realized the fimfic way might not work. In the FAQ, it only talks about letting people read unpublished stories, not chapters. See if it works anyway, I guess. If it doesn't I'll do something else. https://www.fimfiction.net/chapter/1549198 View pass: iwtcin
>>4474 It works. >iwtcin we all do
>>4474 Works, and I don't see any errors so far, nor anything offensive in the writing itself. Good to carry on, QM! Though I do remember fimfic having some rules about letting people read unpublished chapters that seemed particularly anal, but I forget the specifics.
>>4479 I want to watch chrysalis lay many eggs.
>>4476 Thanks for the feedback, it's encouraging. I'm going to leave the password alone for the rest of the day if anyone else wants to check it out. After that, it's back to waiting until I have the full thing ready.
>>4474 I got a 404 error on my end when I tried to access it. Did you take down the chapter?
>>4492 Not the QM, but I could still access it.
>>4492 You have to be logged into a fimfic account to read unpublished stuff.
Flashback? There's only one way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjG6LSlePts
>22 views >1 feedback Pretty annoying, but that's how it's going to be I guess. I've gone and disabled previewing. Stay tuned for the full chapter with more fun and excitement coming SOON™.
>>4515 I was meaning to give it a read but I've been incredibly busy over the past few days. I'm sure the new chapter will be great as always. Looking forward to it.
