Previous thread:

After saving up you've landed yourself with a waifu. She looks a bit like her but something is off... Upon closer inspection a couple of parts are off-color or working funny. Would you still love her as is, or would you start arguing with the dealer or try and do something for her, or do it yourself?

As a colt, some words go over your head.

How much cyberware does a pony need, before it becomes a bootleg?
You'd have to go full sci-fi with a damaged clone or cybernetic brain to create doubt that it's the original, which could lead to questions such as, "Are copied memories still the same pony?" and "What if the new brain develops it's own personality that conflicts with the original?" Then again there's nothing on the books against originals, so bootleg bodies might work. Shoving Fluttershy's mind into a companion cube sounds pretty bootleggy.

Books are probably for nerds, maybe. I don't know right now because I'm having trouble remembering if they were or not.
Read the book as to find out if they are truly for nerds.
>only one response
dont want to say i told you so but i told you that you were better off making it as it's own thread. which is a real shame because it's well written.
Then why not make it two responses?

Let's read the book! Then we can play pretend as space mares with Ocean later. really love the Calvin and Hobbes reference
Don't want to appear ungrateful to such a caring mare. Work up the courage to thank Morning Dew for the juice.
dont remember his pic, looks super cute already

Thank you, I still feel like my writing is really rusty and a bit rough. It's good to know it's not inedible green. As for the audience, I'm fine with a small one. As long as somebody enjoys it and this thread is able to stay alive, I'm fine with it being 'small time'. Also, if you have any criticisms about the characters or pacing let me know. It's invigorating to know what people specifically like and don't like about what I make for them.

Working on a post, will post ~~shortly~~ eventually.

Prompt: Really, it's opening up now to more interactions and choices.(though you will take a bath soon, something important for a last bit of character building will happen there).
Well, continue to read the book if we still have it. It was rather engrossing and stopping halfway through is rather vexing.
If we don't still have the book get out of the cart and take a look around, see if we can go help Ocean move luggage.
You still have the book in your lap. Ocean Avenue didn't have a chance to take it.
Ah, then yes I'd say continue reading.
I didn't see it being taking from us but I wasn't sure that I didn't miss it somewhere so in case I do I added that little extra option if we didn't have it.
Going to wait awhile before posting again. It is the middle of the night/early morning in burgerland.
Fair enough, it's pretty late where I am too now anyway.
what exactly are we?
We don't know yet, presumably we'll find out during our bath later.
Morning Dew's manor I believe, but where that is? anyones guess.
That Anon meant "What *Species* are we?"
oops derped and thought it was "where exactly are we"
Yup, it'll all get handled at bath time. Which happens after the luggage gets sorted. Right now we have one vote to let Cherry Street and Ocean Avenue handle the luggage while MC reads. I'll make a post in about an hour, that should be enough time to get some more votes.
wait is there supposed to be some multiple choices of what she said to us? i figured we would just go along to the bath since this mare just rescued us from the cold rain (and death).
Like I said it's pretty open from here. Only one person actually posted an action (to read the book while they unload). If you want some prompts though...

> Continue reading the book and wait for Ocean and Cherry to finish unpacking.
> Help with the unpacking yourself
> Get some fresh air and watch them unpack.
> Rest your eyes while they unpack.
im sure we're too weak to help with any unpacking but i dont know if we're that aware of our own limits. right now being in the carriage with ocean's book is the most comfortable we've ever been so i think we would want to keep reading.

I missed the part that Morning was talking to us directly, so wed nod to her but probably too intimidated to talk to a big mare. if she wants us to do something then i figure she would ask.
I guess I should elaborate more. She said that Cherry Street would draw you a bath and then cook dinner for Ocean and you, AFTER they got done unloading.
if ocean started to unpack i think we might try to help, since copying her might get us on the adult mares good side.
but if ocean isnt unpacking with them then i dont think we'd try either if we dont know whats happening.

> You feel the same guilt bubbling up in you as before.
> It fights with the returning dryness in your throat, and the intimidation of the entire situation.
> As Morning Dew turns to walk out of the carriage, you bite your lip.

"U-uh... Miss Dew?"
> You try to be polite as you speak to her, but it feels off somehow.
> The niceties rub something unnatural, but you can't quite figure out why.
> But given that she was so nice and proper herself, you dismiss the feeling as she turns back to you.

[Judge Intentions (Oppose test) - Success]

> She puts a kind face on, but the way shrugs when she stops and turns her head...
> She tired and stressed right now.
> Not angry, but clearly wanting to resolve whatever adult stuff she's dealing with.
> But you already drew her attention, it'd be mean to just say nothing.

"I wanted to thank you for earlier. A-and apologize."
> She grows a bit of confusion on her brow.
"You uh... Ocean asked you for juice, for me. I'm sorry I didn't ask you myself."
> Your head drops a bit as the guilt passes from your body.
> Whatever stress or annoyance she might have had disappears as she kneels down and faces you.
> A moment passes with a warm smile.
> Then she just nods and walks out the door, absolving you of any doubt you might have had about behavior with nary a word.

[Your relationship with Morning Dew has improved]

> You're left in the carriage alone, though the shaking of luggage slowly being unloaded reminds you that the lonliness is just confined to the interior.
> You briefly consider helping them, and look out the door that Miss Dew left open.
> You see Ocean Avenue flutter-walking some of the smaller bags into the manor, while Cherry lugs the larger bags with a grunt.
> You think that maybe you should help them...

> But then again, you still feel a bit shaky.
> Miss Dew didn't ask you to help either, nor did the other two.
> The seat you were on being comfy and warm also complicated matters.
> And the book was still on your lap, big and inviting as ever.
> Unable to resist its tempation, you crack the tome open and start reading again.
> Spacemare Spiff is imagining the teacher who's sending her to the principal for being 'disruptive' as a jailer marching her to the evil kings of the mathmagorians.
> You end up reading three pages before you're interupted.
> Ocean Avenue excitedly flutters up into the carriage, but misplaces a hoof and stumble-lands on the seat next to you.
> She manages to stay standing, but only just.

> "We'r- Oh, you're still reading? Do you like it? What page are you o-"
> Before she can finish she facehoofs and takes a deep breath.
> Under her breath you can hear her whispering about being a good filly and following directions.
> "S-sorry, Aunt Cherry wanted me bring you up to the bathroom. She's already filled the tub for you."

Prompt: Do you follow? Ask her a question? Talk to her on the walk to the bathroom?
thats okay, time to get out of the carriage
we can talk about the book along the way. sharing our favorite parts and asking whats hers
I've gotta call it a night early since I have a truck to unload tomorrow at work. I'll have time to make another post in the morning before that though.

Before that though I'd like to get the prep work for 'creating the body' done, or at least started....

Discuss and think up of what kind of random assortment of pony parts are going to make up our adorable bootleg. I'll try to incorporate as many people's ideas as possible, but the more well described and effort-fill posts will probably have more impact. Also feel free to have friends you know pitch in, even if they aren't interested in playing in the CYOA proper. Lets make us an abomination for Bootleg General to love.

Also this would be a good time to finally settle on whether we are a Filly or a Colt
I admit that i thought you already decided on colt, but re-reading it from the beginning there's no hint on what sex we are at all.

> We were a reverse trap the entire time
i dont know how daily life is going to be, but we might have a chance of getting a crush on ocean avenue later.
Give us one of those cool back and forth bug horns like Chryssy has, Kirin back scales, dragon wings, and cloven goat hooves.

Also this.
I think one of our legs should be Full chitin. Otherwise the horn might seem lonely.
idk but that pic is sick
>full chitin
holes included or just exoskeleton?
Well of COURSE we have to have holes.

Bug legs with goat hooves in the back, bug legs with griffon claws in the front.
kirin zebra-striped scales, changeling antlers and maybe transparent wings. seapony fins for a mane.
The bug leg's 'hooves' should have the goat split on them, but still be black and chitiny. I can't see a changeling leg end in a non-changeling hoof.
>cant see a changeling leg end in a non-changeling
so you're approaching it like a second discord?
I doubt this monster will look as balanced as Discord.
right we're basically something that shouldnt exist. in mlp. so all body limitations are off, we could have a hoof half one color or type and half another.
One tail for each creature that makes us up. We have all the tails.
how many tails is that?

Alrighty, going to bed for real now. Just dropping by before I do. If you guys want you can also design Ocean Avenue, Cherry Street (thinking about renaming her Cherry Lane since it sounds better. Let you all decide on that), and Morning Dew. And Spacemare Spiff too, why not. Love the crazy ideas you're all coming up with btw.
sleep well. im also on board with >>33661004
it fits the whole mistakes into miracles thing going on with this quest
Help with the packing, lazy bum. At least you'd need to imitate the activity, not very polite to sot and read while even little filly pulls her weight.
I vote for erfpone colt. Let's have a proper character for a change, not the powerplayer's wet dream, unbalanced and having health issues and a shlong lobger than its body.
there's no way wed just be a standard earth pony or they wouldnt have called us an IT when first finding us by the roadside >>33642379

but nothing says that the changeling horn is fully functional or functional at all either. otherwise we might be a freak-alicorn but like an alicorn none the less.
Simple: they thought it's a dog and only up close it looked like a pony.
you're in for a bad time when we find a mirror in the bath.
Dirty and tangled after the rain, seems believable
maybe it would be, had the cyoa been any other thread. the QM prompt asks for crazy ideas, not just normal pony stuff.
we could be part sphinx even though there's only one in the show. it's still pony-like
I didn't imply we look beautiful when cleaned lol. I simply have a hard time imaginimg something as bootleg as Discord, but non-matching colours from different palettes (pastel for body and some crazy 80s' neon for eyes or something) and maybe limb joints should be as bootleg as it needs. Remember that bootleg stuff is trying to resemble normal stuff, not a frankenstein; iphone clones, for example, don't include external antennas, tv tuners and slider qwerty attachments.
>no franken ponies
but wheres the fun in that?
Our torso has quite a bit more chest fluff than normal.
How about a British London accent? (or an Egyptian accent if we go for being half sphinx)
Voting for sphinx.
Basically all our legs are big cat legs and we have a cat tail, some bad standard Pegasus wings and sharp teeth. Plus some slit irises.

Ooo~ Now that's an idea. So what that'd make us slightly bigger than normal (for our age) but basically a catpony Pegasus? I could live with that and it'd sort of make sense why they couldn't tell what we were.
The fun comes when they are able to perform at least a small number of basic living being activities without being visible from ISS

If we have wings, go vestigial or damaged to keep things hard mode.
What if the bug parts are porcelain (and pink?) to give a more artificial look, like a toyish golem? Then it'd make a cute tink noise while walking around.
Maybe it'll look less like Frankenstein's monster if we tried to coordinate colors? Zebra stripes has been suggested, and I'm suggesting pastel pink over the black limbs. What prominent colors would we use without going full rainbow power?
I'm a sucker for egyptian themes, throw in some mummy bandages!
If we're going with stripes, we need cherokee cut.

But really, just imagine story possibilities when, as with any bootleg, someone sees a normal pony in the distance, and the wrongness becomes apparent only up close. No edgebuild can do that.
I mean we could wear some bandages but that would be incredibly weird and disturbing if it was an actual part of our physical body rather than just something we choose to wear.
another option for wings is that are different sized on each side so flight is near impossible.
so what youre saying is we should be blinking with the power of a small city
What part of "without" did I misspell?
So now I try to incorporate at least a little of everyone's ideas together.

Unfortunately that time has passed. Sorry! You can apologize to her for not helping though if you want.

> Bug horn, Kirin Plating, Dragon Wings
> Changeling Legs in the back
> Kirin Plating is striped, wings are translucent like bug
> Changeling legs end in cloven hooves, but still chitin
Not sure if this would be a bit much.
Erf ponies are considered abominations by Unicorn racists, but that' about it.
Front legs of a Sphynx and
cat fangs, slit iris, slightly larger, lotsa chest fluff
Egyptian Eye Markings and 'porcelain' colored changeling legs to match color scheme (but in old-bug style).

It looks like a pretty mixed bag by now, just a few more considerations: What kind of chest fluff (pony fluff, kirin fluff, pegasus down feather fluff, etc), and what kind of ears (cat, bat, poner, etc), and tail (the idea of having every tail is amusing, but would probably be too busy even for this character. Feel free to describe some sort of hybrid tail if you'd like that though).

I'll admit I think it'd be better if we were a bit more sphinx, but whatever at least we are symmetrical.
Still pretty adamant on the Egyptian accent.
Our large amount of chest fluff is just pony fluff.
Cat ears.
The base of out tail is thick and dragon like covered in scales, then it it tapers into a lion's tail.

It was not really addressed but are we a colt or a filly? Or are we really going to end up being a reverse trap?

Since we're going all out bizarre, we need a big clumsy seapony tail, like a betta or butterfly koi. Keep it translucent to match the wings

We're basically rolling a mongrelfolk pc at this point. Better dump all our skill points into Disguise, lest we see many pitch forks and torches in our future.
anon the accent wasnt like how we might sound but stuff like having the eye markings. think of how the kirin have a scale-plating on their front muzzle. thats an accent
Oh, how about a DD tail then? We can whack stuff with it!
where's the first post of this quest?
nice. is this archived?
Not that I'm aware of.
Well yes I understand that, but it did make me think of us having a vocal accent as well.
thats the premise pitch.
pretty sure first post was >>33636589 unless you count the polls which didnt go anywhere due to ties and low vote count

might need a name for it before we can archive it

It's your CYOA to play, what not name it too (along with your character).

Also I'm just dropping by before work. I may or may not make a post after work. Depends on how late I have to stay and how tuckered out I am. I hate truck nights.

Would be sweet to get this archived on Anonpone, but that black magic is beyond me
Did being a mishmash ever change something in the story? Like, how many cyoa writefags ever used or even mentioned these bizarre features and not just treat OC as a very normal pony? I'd rather pick something from the plot, if nothing good, then some dumb rain metaphor at least.

So wait, is this thread a CYOA thread now? I've been away for a while and I don't really see anything aside from that.
well we dont know anything about the plot unless you look at the premise.
>rain metaphor
thats about the farthest removed from plot
Everybody's trying to create a duckface giraffe with diamond dog claws and dragon wings, this will disappear once actual story resumes.

Still closer than any bodily feature yet, unless OC breaks 5 out of its 10 legs and we'll get "Rear window" refefence. Start of the plot is significant enough.

im drawing a blank here, id be okay with getting a name assigned to us. dont know about everyone else, since cc usually includes names
Double. That's an ok name.
eh doesnt really feel like it's something that we'd get named in Morning Dew's household. maybe there's some kind of space alien pony in the book that Ocean Avenue liked?

So it's pretty much just CYOA and sometimes inflatables now and the CYOA is the only thing keeping the thread active. Well shit. I spent so much time here I don't really want to just close the tab and move on but at the same time I don't care about CYOAs. Bummer.
Who's your favorite bootleger whorse?
Rare is still the best but I like Derby a lot too.
discussion was pretty thin for a long while even when there was writefagging and drawing, it's what this place needs the most besides ideas for bootlegs that get writefags or drawfags interested.
if a story is being told then there's really not that much difference between green and a wordy cyoa.

Lots of choices on the tail. We got big fishponer tail, cat tail, DD tail. It's a core aspect so I need it before I finish up some mechanical things behind the scenes.

Also, we'll need a color scheme. Mane style too. You can have a standard color scheme for the whole 'pony', or you can change it a bit.

As for a name... If you do want to not know your name that's cool too.
I'm on board with the Diamond Dog tail.
I like >>33661410 's color idea.
And I'm fine with the name being Anon.
one color for all the different parts might be a way to avoid going full sparklefur after everything or would that be more sparklefur?

are you suggesting pink stripes over black 'changeling' 'pony' parts?
Throw Nirik colors in and we're good. I like the Fishponer tail.

Oh no, >>33661065 suggested zebra stripes for the kirin scales which I noted might be black and white but wasn't specified. Then unrelated I threw out a lighter color to replace black for the bug parts (limb/ horn) if anons were up for a more cutesy look. Said anon was also the only to suggest a mane so far with seapony fins.
So we go full black edge then? It lines up with the original black bug legs.
God no ow the edge. This is an anti ore on edgy coloring. Also the porcelain changeling legs are cute and need a pretty color to go with them. I'd prefer to keep the color scheme to 2 body colors just to avoid sparkle fur bs. Maybe some artfags can suggest colors?
Shit, I meant antiVOTE not anti ore. Fucking phone.
Fish tails are cute
whats that supposed to mean?
are we going for diamond dog tail or fish tail?
Subtract one from the tally, instead of adding to another.
How about a shark tail? That's vicious like a DD but fishy like a fish!
there's no shark ponies in mlp, dont know what longname would say about it. but a DD tail might have some practical use of smashing shit, which is rare to have anything workable in our favor for our ponish freak.
didnt know there was any support for edgelord colors. im fine with something cute, but having nirik is kind of close to edgelord isnt it?

il try to scribble out this abomination tomorrow
And then our secret shame. We're just an ordinary changeling who got creative with the shapeshifting.

Well, fish tails that don't take both the legs don't exist either. I'd allow it if that's what people would like.

A fish/shark tail would help with swimming. DD Tail would help with smashing. And all limbs are going to impact your character.

As for colors... The changeling legs are pink, and the Kirin shell has 'stripes' of different colored plates. The colors (other than the legs) are still being decided by YOU, the PEOPLE. Or by whatever artfag decides to draw something up and no one else can get the image out of their mind.
I think that's what people were assuming when they picked fish tails. Shark tails work too. Oh now I really want to vote for the diamond dog tail.

We. Purge the zigger out of us. Let's have a peach colored mane and tail highlight (No fucking clue how this is gonna work) and a brown everything else.
I'd vote shark tail if we're not going with a cat tail.
And I'll be honest I don't really mind what colors we are I just kind of want to get started.

scribble fag here, here's what I have in taking everyone's suggestions.

>Main body color is in between a Nirik and Sphinx
>The back Changling cheese legs are pink
>Mane is a peach color, it's fishpone/hippogriff texture
>Eyes are slits like bat or cat (from the Sphinx)
>The iris color is from the Sphinx too.
>Eye shadow is from Nirek colors
>black Egyptian eye accent on face
>Shark pone tail with a peach accent
>Kirin back, striped like a Zebra but Sphinx-like ornamental colors
>Crooked evil Changeling horn, same color as main body

For right now I left out the wings and nu-ling antlers if people still want that. Honestly I dont think that we need the wings, it makes the design needlessly complicated because of the kirin back plating. If I got the cheese legs wrong on how they attach then let me know. I don't think it looks edgelord, but I could be biased.
this is perfect
the best king of mismatch kind of perfect
you are the best drawfag anon
i admit the mishmash turned out far better than expected by thinking in terms of 'dominant' species instead of just having a franken-pony of multicolor rando parts
I think this works well, and you might be right about the wings and antlers it'd probably start looking way too busy with those added.
yeah kinda, the kirin scales could be moved to be more narrow and go further along the tail but then that might be cheating the ideaof the cyoa from parts of ponies misplaced into genetics gone wrong

I respectfully concede. You did an outstanding job, and my color theory is so shit I'd take another day to get anything decent. Had the same problem with the wings. My rendition is too girly anyway since I assume we're still rolling with a reverse trap. It's funny that I was initially against DD tail, but it works well with the sphinx theme.
this is cute too and looks like sphinx being the dominant species is the popular choice and you made that part of the bug horn too. some egypt symbol? You added a little more kirin in as well and the cat ddog does combo well.

As for the wings if we have em then I think just changeling bug wings could work since they're fully transparent, instead of going with dragon wings.

>too girly for rev trap
they could be boyish with a blockier muzzle or it could just be your style on how you draw colts it's hard to really tell.
I also dont know what sex we are going with so I just kind of made it a little androgynous blocky-but-rounded instead of just full colt-face and stallion later.
It's not edge lord at all, you're right... But I have an idea for the wings. Instead of dragon wings, what if we have some sort of weird nirik 'flame' cloak wings? The kirin scales could get enshrouded in shadowy stuff and turn into a single unified half-circle 'wing'. Kid of thinking of Howl's Moving Castle when his cape turns into wings. just keeping it as some weird magical cape wing instead of become raven wings

We are 'big' apparently, maybe we have more muscle than most mares so it gives us an androgynous look?

Hmm... I didn't really like the idea of a DD tail when it was first suggested either but you made it work really well with the rest of our body, I'm not sure which I like more between it and a shark tail anymore.
File: A5uraeus.jpg (35 KB, 450x620)

Uraeus tend to be perpendicular to the face, so if you we want a horn inspired by that... Maybe make the changeling horn's base wider at the bottom (more like a kirin horn) but and go up more than diagonally out. Also, maybe have it end at an abrupt 'up' twist so it keeps the feel of a changeling spike?

I really like the look of the shark tail. It helps keep the design from looking like 'a sphinx with some extra stuff tacked on'. Also swimming is fun. Smashing is for bad girls.

heres a shitty colorjob. since only partially colored vs full color isnt really a fair comparison.
since someone suggested a brown body before that's the main pick here. this is even less edgelord than the other, and looks quite cheery, like a happy accident oc.
Awesome work you two! Love how it looks.


This should help decide once and for all what tail is best.

Also yea. Shadowy magical kirin magic wing would be acceptable if that's what you'd like.

After we decide on the tail and what/if to have wings we'll be done and I'll post your character sheet. Then we can continue.
nirik wings sounds cool but might be better off for another character or cyoa

Even if it can solve the design from being more a clusterfuck, how would you avoid a power-player situation? kinda why alicorn quests are no where to be found. I mean look at the potential advantages our freak is packing.
>Better swimmer than pone (shark tail)
>Better night vision than pone (sphinx slit eyes)
>Better offense than pone (ddog tail / claws)
>More armored than pone (kirin plating, and tougher back cheese legs)
>Magic if the changeling horn works (maybe even changeling only magic)
>Wings that can count as another kind of magic (a double perk if they can be used for flight)
I forgot, there's more
>Bigger than average pone (more muscle thanks to sphinx)
>and the biggest perk of all (being able to rhyme and freestyle on ponies with ease thanks to our zigger parts)
Also, I didn't say it before but I like the horn design.

That might possibly be true, but I like the sphinx look I voted for entirely sphinx in fact. So you could see why that particular point might not be as convincing for me.
The choice is still hard, swimming or matching slightly better with our other parts.
There is a lot of pros to both, I really like the little extra detail of the small feeler fins on the shark tail (for some reason I feel like the underside of our shark tail should be white, to be more sharklike I think?) but I can't deny how well the DD tail suits us.

I think I would vote for no wings. We look good as is no matter what tail we pick, we have two lovely pictures to prove it.

>Bigger than average pone (more muscle thanks to sphinx)
Can't forget that.
Okay so it's looking like wings are are up in there air so one last poll


Also we are tied on DD vs Shark/Fish. If it's not resolved by the time I get back I'll just bump it to what I think is cool and neato.


Ugh, maybe you should just pick what you think is neat. I'm still having a hard time choosing between them.

Can we have the underside of our tail colored white if it's a shark tail?
I'm happy with the DD tail as is but if we end up going shark tail I think it would add to it a little.
Shhh, I'm not here contradicting the 'final' post comment. But yes if you have a shark tail you can color the underside.
>another tie
saw that coming. tie-twister the quest.
Looks like Shark Tail is winning, with no wings. Wew lad!
Ah good, I just kind of want this vote over so we can get to the quest. We'll look good either way.

> Absolute size of that lady

It should be "Absolute size of that lad y"
Ah perfect. So we're going with reverse trap then?
That's what people pretty much unanimously agreed one. I image it's due to her size and comparative bulk due to her sphinx influence that gets poners confused.

Okay, if anyone wants to add any more input on the last 'story' post now's the time to do it. Otherwise it'll just be >>33660946

And possibly >>33661249 turning into an apology.
Yea that's probably what it'd be, big muscular and tall we fit the bill for being a colt/stalliin pretty well. This is going to be a lot of fun.
Nope, go ahead.

So I'm posting with this instead of trip, because if we get graced by a spot on anonpone I don't want to clutter up DM posts probably should have done this sooner.

Reason I'm posting is because I stepped out due to my cat freaking out over something. I went out and comforted him til he went back to sleep, and then got busy tidying the house. Bit too late for me to post now. I'm gonna go to bed now and give morning friends a chance to add to the 'what do with Ocean Avenue on the way to the bath' question.

ps: Artfriends are great. It makes me happy to see everyone getting excited and involved in character creation. I'm gonna try my best to make sure this quest is a good time for everyone. Sweet dreams /bootleg/.
which one out of the adults is the pegasus? and which ones the earth pony. got any input on what they look like?
Morning Dew is a unicorn. Cherry Street is a Pegasus.. Their colors haven't been mentioned yet and art friends are free to decide on that matter.
we cant all be nips
> The two ponies in question talking are adults, a pegasus and an earth pony.
no really which one's the earf
I fugged up then. Morning Dew is a Unicorn and Cherry Street is a Pegasus. Sorry...

I also kept switching Morning Dew and Ocean Avenue's names around a bit. Whoops. I was really tired when I wrote those, just like I am now. I am really actually going to go to sleep and not gonna think about all the cool stuff on the internet.

All this planning has me hyped. Have a defunct bootleg pc.
Thank you based artfriend, I've no words. Your coloring possessed me to finish what I had planned for the fish tail before the choice morphed into shark. And just for fun, did an attempt at the dragon/bug wings when that was still on the table; definitely too much going on.
I'm relatively new to this. What does "+0k1" mean?

No worries, as far as I know I'm the only QM to use this kind of system. Here's a pastebin that gets into specifics:


A short version:

Robustness, Smarts, Moves, and Personality are "Characteristics". The stats under them are "Attributes". When you need to make a check, the following happens:

> Add the skill and relevant attribute together, this is your 'dice pool'
> Roll your dice pool.
> If any 10s come up, you may re-roll that dice and add the new number to that dice's 'value' (so a dice can have a value greater than ten). This is called an 'exploding' dice, and your dice in your dice pool can only 'explode' a number of times equal to your MOXIE rating.
> After you're done rolling, you choose a number of dice equal to your characteristic to 'keep', which you add together.
> That sum is your result, which determines how well you did.

So +0k1 means you get to keep an additional dice when you make that check, but not roll any additional dice.
>that long tail train
ok now you can say its too girly.

> Before you can respond to her, the filly has fluttered out of the carriage and to the ground below.
> You put her book on the seat with a soft 'whump', and hop out through the door.
> The ground makes its own 'whump' as you land on the packed dirt.
> Ocean Avenue crooks her head back to look at you, giving a chortle as you balance yourself from the impact that was a bit more than you were expecting.

> After you regain your sense of up and down, you can see that immediately outside of the carriage is deeply overgrown.
> A single wooden platform a little bit wider than the carriage you just got out of penetrates into the forest.
> Listening though you can hear the sound of slowly moving water, and birds, and other things.
> When you turn around and look to the other side of the road however...
> It's open fields, dotted with ruined fences.

Eh, close enough
So, if anybody even needs the bin of the CYOA, I'd kindly ask the author to do that. There is a bin in the green archive in OP that contains previous thread's text, but I don't know if I want to keep it updated. The way I usually went was hysterically copypasting everything before my browser crashes/ communal services mess with electricity/whatever closes the tab of locked thread. It kinda worked with regular greens, but it'll take an hour to collect the whole thread of green and arrange all the answers and recommendations and quotes and so on. I won't delete mine bin for a few threads if you need time, just make sure you have backups if you need them.
Good enough, I suppose. We can reach and pick it up ourselves.
Hopefully it will be added to anonpone eventually. Until then I've been saving each finished thread as an HTML. If this thread reaches archives and it's still not up on anonpone then I'll go back and make a pastebin for it.
Question, I'm not quite sure but are we supposed to respond to this post?

In case we are.

Pick up the towel and start to dry ourselves with it.
picking up on the pattern that "#U*$#!" doesnt mean swears but words we cant understand. neat idea
Miss Cherry was angry about us and she could be passive aggressive but I hope not, let's just think it was an accident pick it up and thank her.
> Then without warning the door is thrown open.
> Ocean Avenue has a towel in her mouth, folded and clean.
Silly anon, that's Ocean Avenue not Cherry Street. You got your addresses mixed up.

She needs hugs. Lots of them.

Something along the lines of "Huh... I never really thought about that."
>What do?
Avoid the mirror I guess. Don't want another mini panic attack.
>How feel?
I guess tell her about the "wrongness" we feel about ourself.
What do you mean? I look normal I think, and if I remember correctly I've been called a sphinx and a changeling so I'm not sure.
>How respond?
Say that we don't know
>What do?
look at your paws in a thinking gaze, then to Ocean, and then heads up to lunch
>How feel?
We feel that something is wrong, and not only with our body, but don't know what it is.
>ive been called a sphinx and changeling
i dont think we've met anyone else, the street and rain was our first solid memory in Equestria. the rest is just strange contradictions like hand/hoof/paw and hating flowers / loving tulips
If I recall correctly, we remember nothing from before we wake up at the start of the CYOA, so I think that we don't even know what a changeling or Sphinx is
and the dreams, if those can be considered memories.
>How respond, what do, how feel?
pained silence scared if we remember the mirror disphoria, maybe she can pick up that it's a painful subject? would we hyperventilate? i hope not.

if we're back to normal then just say that we dont know and cant remember, maybe there's something about us in another book like spacemare spiff?
We seem to have an odd mishmash of knowledge. Who is to say what we do or don't know?
Wait, isn't Morning Dew a unicorn?
yeah thats was an old sketch made before that detail
Is it just me, or does Ocean come of as being a victim of abuse when she talked to herself?
>your 'hard' parts
>the whole display
Put that towel back on, she doesn't even know our name yet!
Think that was a reference to the changeling legs and Kirin plates

A little bit of anxious, a little bit of sass, a little bit of admission of anxiety is what I'm getting. Gonna make some beans and rice, then I'll whip something up before work
Had a surprisingly hard time writing this one. Ocean doesn't like being a simple character to write it seems.

Prompt: The usual about feelings and thinking... Do you want to talk to her more about it on the way there, or try changing the subject? Ask her questions?
Lets talk about Spacemare Spiff on the way.
I am really hungry... Sure, let's go get lunch I don't know when I last ate was.
I do like spacemare Spiff, do you know of anything else like it?
Start to follow her to lunch.
>bloody bead
where'd that come from? did we get a concussion in the bath?
good idea Ocean
we talked about spacemare spiff on the way, i dont know if wed just go right back to it. maybe we can ask about they made?

Since she's self conscious about being friendly to us and we dont know anything about our life, we can ask about hers later and we can be better friends. getting a feeling our partpony is going to need a lot of therapy hugs
Whoops. When I copy pasta'd from note pad I missed a line. You bit you lip wearily, but you have cat fangs and drew a bit of blood.

At work right now on my phone, so no update posts unfortunately.
okay carry on.

What's a partpony?
>part pony
>partly pony
>pony of parts
>What's a partpony?
That's the burning question everyone wants to know now isnt it?
Is it referring to us, or our friend Ocean. Because she seems like she needs more hugs than us
>She seems like she needs more hugs than us
cant it be both? they basically need eachother even if they cant tell. the MC is traumatized by what we are, needs some consoling, hugs and acceptance to help us get over how we look, which if we cant is only going to be bad for our esteem. And she needs a friend to listen and break out of her timid shell for not doing things by the book.

Yeah, I've heard it a hundred times in /spg/, and how did it end?

Funny you should say that.

What the green needs is an excuse, a small paragraph to connect the lore to thread topic, and there's plenty of time and options here. I even suggested a little something in the previous post. So, again, what makes it bootleg aside from every cyoa's favourite mishmash of limbs? If you have an update coming, I'll gladly read it.

I found the sisters.
welp another time i was trying to write a new green and i end up in the hospital. fml
What happened?
I've been sick for longer then a month. Flu with post nasal drip in my throat. I took SAM-e to kick me out of depression but found out later that you're not supposed to take it on a compromised immune system, which can promote a growth of the bacteria. Well a couple days ago I was feeling pretty good. but then just the other night worse than ever so I upped the amount of stuff I was taking to fight it off.

While i was writing up something for an april fools bootleg green I had a fever that hit me out of the blue, it was hard to walk trying to find a thermometer, didnt find one gave up and went to lie down. both my hands were tingling like crazy and it was hard to talk with shallow breaths, sometimes not breathing at all and my sore throat from the sickness felt like it burned like crazy.

they dont really know why it happened since i took so many different things, but the culprit they believe is overdosing on vitamins or supplements since i took a combined amount of over the counter stuff and might have shocked my system. it got much much worse at the hospital, the worst part about it is how in both cases i felt completely fine one minute and the next like im going to die when everything starts locking up, tingling and shutting down while my heart and breathing are all over the place. The second time it came in, in the hospital my heart rate was about 150.

the discharge paper says it's a near syconpe, which is just a fancy word of saying nearly losing consciousness, it's a self-defense mechanism your brain uses. but being consious during the whole process just made everything worse, imagine lockjaw over your entire body cramping and muscles tighting refusing to move even got to the point where my throat felt like it was closing up and my lungs were struggling to move before they finally gave me a muscle relaxer and the nightmare ended.
that last bit just made me imagine a grape just having its skin contracting until it pops, this shows one should be really careful with pills even vitamins even just c vitamins but i hope you get better so take care and dont die in your sleep like my 18 old buddies buddy fucking died at new years eve and he was health and sporty just fucking heart stop while sleeping

Prompt: Observations the PC makes? Feelings towards Cherry or Ocean? Comments on the house?
I like Ocean, but I'm uncertain about Cherry. Also, why is everything covered in sheets?
ocean looks like shes more scared of cherry than us despite how she looks. we'll have to ask about it later, i dont like how she was freezing up and hid behind her wings. but it would make a scene with cherry if we brought it up now.
This place is absolutely huge, we're not going to get lost in here are we? I'm pretty hungry already walking around lost wouldn't be fun.
Let's attempt small talk with Cherry to dispel some uncertainty between us. Ask her about the manor and how she feels living in such an odd home.

what about this one >>33693323 and why'd he delete it?
Let's give both of them space. I feel like there is a lot of tension that we shouldn't be butting into.
this is probably the best option. cherry already has a bad impression of us when they first picked us up and it hasnt even been a day. file this in the back of our mind but dont make trouble now
sorry, guna take at least one more day for me. i feel pretty much normal, but ive got to do all sorts of paperwork and sending off things to the family who want to get to the bottom of what caused it so I dont go through it again. but I still have the file open, so shes not forgotten.

Prompt: Attempt to use magic to fold it? Try to do it with your paws? Hand it to her?
Use telekinesis to hold it in place, but use our paws to fold it. We don't know how *strong* our magic is, so we don't want to risk tearing the sheet.
Maybe we can use our magic when we're feeling better and not as hungry. Plus we should try it when we won't accidentally embarrass ourselves.
Fold it with our paws trying to be careful.
just try to fold with our paws. it might take longer but have more confidence in our paws than horn. if we're having difficulty then we can ask Cherry for help to show us how to do the complex folds but just handing it to her would be rude. After we offered to help I think we'd give it our best shot
feeling pretty good today so il probably be able to get back on the horse later.
Disregard paws, utilize magic!

I think she smiled when she saw us getting along with Ocean Avenue, but was otherwise stressed with the book she was reading. I think both smile and frown work.

I was kind of going for a faded grassy sort of look since and blues but now since you said that I cant unthink it's closer to Mountain Dew.

So here's an alternate mix of greens and a little more yellow (morning). she looks closer to related to Ocean the more yellow/blue way, even if pony colors mean little to nothing for genetics.
I think the non smile works better just because of her generally tired look. But the smile works to offset that look, making her still seem tired but satisfied or happy so it's a nice contrast.
Damn anon. Hope you're doing well
dem breeding hips
Agreed more of a tired smile face her frown feels so weird looking at it
I think a frown works, but not the toothy frown like in >>33699995
>frown feels so weird looking at it
how so?
It looked to low at the muzzel looking unatural
Also why would she be frowning
I would cuddle a bootleg horse
not really a frown, just a relaxed lip. her eyebrows arent pointed down so coupled with the lower eyelids she just looks tired.
She's having to read over important stuff for work I'm guessing?
alright so whats cherry street / cherry lane going to look like to differ from cherry bubble?

Is there more of this?
Since everyone's all over the place, I'm gonna say it's Paws + Magic, with an emphasis on quality over speed. Each raise increases the DC 5. Raises happen when you try to improve the quality of an attempt where 'doing more/better' would make the action itself harder. In this case, attempting to do a perfect fold is easier to fail than a sloppy one. In the future I'll prompt when a raise declaration would be necessary.

give ocean a smile and a helping paw. we can talk about the house, since cherry is here it'll be something adult ponies know better. what is this place?
I kinda wonder what it'd look like with different fur colors. Brown seems... I dunno, really harsh?
I liked that purple preview
That 'it' is a she, thank you very much!
*over dramatic harrumph*
other colors like what?
yeah but browns won the vote over purple
The vote is never over
but it literally is
maybe we can change colors since we're part changeling. waking up one day and just be a different hue
mines doing the thing again
it always happens between 11pm and 2am or when it's storming

kind of makes sense ehn you think about it would not be strange if we changed body parts suddenly
Not sure about changing whole body parts. But hues and colors would be fun

Cherry Lane is more elegant of a name than Cherry Street. But I think one of the ways to differ from the two is longer hair. the question being what kind of a mane to go with. any opinions?

here's a quicky before bed. since her head shape is such a big part of her design I didn't g4-ponify her completely

I like the third.
not very 'equestrian' but i guess 'normal' names can exist too

She looks adorable!
That pony really makes me wet
Do think Cherry Lane as a name is better, and I like the leftmost mane option. It looks much more elegant.

"But, why is the house so big? Did some sort of king live here before?"
> Cherry Lane puts down her cup of ice water.

Prompt: Ask anything else? Just keep working until something comes up? How do you feel?

Also, question: Does the character know if they are actually female? Also how would you want to handle the naming, would you rather be named, or have it come to you in a dream, or just remember it, or something else?

Sorry for the weird post splitting, probably could have done it in fewer posts but I wasn't paying attention. Whoops.

Just have some small talk while working feel happy in a small way
That's some intense chemotherapy.
I'd go with we don't know we're female as we don't really know much at the moment plus I find that's a more fun angle to explore depending on where this quest goes. And I don't really have any stake in the naming thing but I think being named sounds best.

Screw our face up a little bit in confusion.
With what what kind of magic? What do you mean?
She has no mouth, but she must cringe
> Her voice pops with emphasis when she says 'that
If she doesnt elaborate, then she could at least recommend a book in the library. You can at least lift rocks in the garden or something.
support i am also confused
>Does the character know if they are actually female?
I agree with >>33741283
>Also how would you want to handle the naming
A dream makes more sense to me.
If that's how you want us to be named I'm fine with that.
I was just thinking we could have one of those blurry memory-dream sequences where someone calls our name, and when we wake up we're excited because we remember our name, then Ocean says something along the lines of "Huh... Your name is 'X'? You look more like a 'Y'."
That first part sounds fine, but I kind of thought our name would be foreign enough for her to not be able to tell what gender it's supposed to be for.
But even if it's not I don't know if I want it to be found out so fast that we're a filly. Sure if she just thinks it's weird though that's fine.

> Then sighs.
> Then shakes her head with a huff and sets her eyes on you.
> When she sees you tense, she returns to her previous sigh.
> "It's changeling magic."
> Her voice seems mechanical, as if her words are being forced out.
> "It's not normal,-"
> As she talks she starts plucking spice canisters from the box and putting them in the holders on the center table.
> With enough force to evoke rattles and clinks.
> "you're not normal,"
> Her motions speed up as she continues.
> "but Morning Dew asked me to be kind to you,-"
> She pulls out a paper towel holder and slams it down with such force that it makes an exceptionally loud clatter.
> Which seems to pull her back from her forced tirade and give her pause.
> She puts out a few more knick knacks, but they are placed without the frantic energy of before.
> "I just don't know what to make of it all, and I..."
> Her words drift off to nothing as she just looks at the holder.
> Or perhaps the hooves that bashed it against the counter.

> Deflated, Cherry Lane takes the now empty box and stacks it on top of the rest.
> "But I guess I'm just yelling at a colt, which doesn't do much other than make me look ridiculous."
> She passes by you, gesturing with a wing to follow as she goes to the door.
> "Look, let's... Let just make a little deal. If you promise to not tell my Niece or Morning Dew of this little outburst of mine, I'll get you a book for magic. That's a fair deal, right?"
> She gives an smile that seems unusually awkward as she puts a wing to the door awaiting your answer.
> Clashing with the poise she carried herself with since...
> Well, the entire short time you've known her.

Prompt: Usual of what do, what say, what think.

For the name, we have Tetra and Charlie as contenders. Keep discussing, the name vote will be decided on soon.
i would not have told them anyway its rude talking behind someones back
so should we go for a name like patch or patchwork?
did something bad happen with changelings and her?
Shift a little uncomfortably.
'Does she really not like me?'
Okay... I promise.
I kind of like both Charlie and tetra as names, Charlie because it's so boyish and Tetra because it fits in with the Egyptian theme well. If there was a more boyish sounding Egyptian name then that would be perfect but do far I'm leaning towards Tetra.
well if we want egyptian theme I got some choices from research
>god of creation and rebirth
>man with scarab beetle head
>considered a female name despite being the name of a god and not a goddess
>egyptian for newly born
>female name but sounds like wallace which is a male name in the west
I like Khepri more, but that might be biased because Wallace is not really a name I'm particularly fond of. Is Wallis said any differently then Wallace similarly how is Khepri pronounced, Eh I guess both of those questions don't really matter since its not like we're going to hear them said.

With all that said I think despite my misgivings that Wallis might be the one to go with, it being so easily mixed up with a male name is hard to pass up. (does that even apply though? It's a human name, but I suppose it might be male griffin name since they have human names.)
at least thats what they sounded like when I looked up pronunciations
on a side-note wallis is more known for its english roots(Its a variation of Wallace) then egyptian roots so maybe its not the best choice, and I have a hard time finding more info on the egyptian roots because of that.
Really? Damn, that's a shame. That name might be out now.

That's a good find.
its very hard to find purely egyptian names, since a lot of egyptian names are actually african or muslim, but used in egypt. However I think I found a pretty good one

Chisisi(Ch-Sigh-See) is egyptian for secret, which I think is kinda fitting

besides this one I couldnt find anything better, so either this or Khepri for egyptian names
Why can't we have a pony name given to us
Hmm... I suppose we vote on those then.
I don't really mind which we go with but I think Chisisi I'd pretty neat.

We technically could but the name coming to us in a dream seems more popular.
we can though, its a vote after all. feel free to make a pony name
Im okay with that name
Kepri Sun
ask what is a changeling?
>Capri Sun
>K(h)epri Sun
that's genius

it gotta be this. it's the perfect mistake of sounding like it could be equestrian, but has a hint of the old life
Anyone interested in some green of this newbie?
Green away mysterious stranger.
That could be really interesting. I would like to see what you are thinking, or at least hear your ideas if you don't green.
You don't need permission silly, go for it.
That's too silly even for me.

i like this fun and fits all the themes
go for it i want to see it
im the one that came up with tetra, wasnt really digging the egyptian naming until this one just clicked
good then I already started writing, I'll post it a bit later tonight when I feel like I have a good chunk built up. I was doing a dripfeed last time I started to write, may have jumped the gun on posting it before having enough to hook some interest.

>Didn't really matter if you believed in it or not, just one less thing for people to harp on you about, which is just how you liked it.
>You kept to yourself and your nosy neighbors kept to their own business, the only privacy between you and them was a wooden fence too tall to see over, like in that old TV sitcom.
>Wasnt your idea, but you weren't complaining. It did the job just fine.
>You decided to cash in some of your savings, and put it towards a way out of this sweaty nightmare.
>With the front door now closed, you stuffed your beat up leather wallet into your back pocket.
>Keys twirling in your hands momentarily, you turned and left the door alone as you made your steps down to the old sedan.
>You had considered locking it but that would be pointless around here, you've got nothing to really steal just a collection of junk nobody would want and it's not a ghetto.
>Of course that didn't include the car, but it wasn't really anything to look at either.
>A faded and dull blueish green, the white trim had been peeling paint and flaking off.
>You frowned looking at the state it's in, especially the tires.
>They had started to crack too, with little black veins carved in threatening to turn it into a death trap at any given moment.
"Ah it'll probably be fine..."
>You're not going on a country road trip just an errand run.

>Getting yourself seated in the tanned pleather seats you fired her up and after moment of choking you shared with the car, in the car-now-oven you went to tune the metal nobs only to feel like you just pinched a piece of coal, immediately reflexively recoiling and cursing.
"Ow! son of a cocksock, that's HOT!"
>"Sheesh. if it's already this bad out in the early morning..."
>'Then you don't want to know what it's going to be like later.'
>Using a makeshift cover you grabbed it with your shirt covering your sensitive fingertips and searched through static...
>And after couple blips of what could have been music, you settled the dial and pulled out.
>"-ooking like another sunny day here in-"
>The antenna jerked to the side, the sudden motion of the car sending the radio back in and out of static.
>'Probably should get that fixed sometime'
>The news forecast, not terribly exciting but for what you have in mind, it's an essential piece of the puzzle.
>You'll drive a little slower than usual... and let the antenna settle.
>You listened intently while navigating the many potholes and cracks along the drive that were just part of a daily obstacle course, now and every time you got in the car, that handled more like a boat.
>Plus there's another reason, the one doing the weather forecast was a new girl.
>Sounds kind of like one of those anime girls you used to watch when you were a weeb.
>She just started a few weeks ago and still had that brimming optimism to her, still hopeful before having those hopes grind into dust on this Earth.
>If you weren't such shit at socializing, a parallel universe you would probably drive down to the station to ask her out.
>And then parallel you would immediately make an ass out of yourself because you don't even know her name.
>"Today we're headed for the upper 90s and even climbing into the 100s later in the week yow!"
>Groaning from the news and dreaded looking ahead, looks like Mother Nature had it out for you this month, or was it Sunbutt giving you some kind of divine punishment? You mused.
>You can't think of any way you could have 'offended her' and shrugged it off. You don't really believe in that kind of stuff anyways, some people were just loopy but it's fun to think about now and then.
>You hope you have enough to cover all the necessities to not land yourself in debt.
>Or bigger debt anyways.
>But at least it's kind of comforting having a passenger to listen to, even if they weren't really there with you.
>"Make sure that you're inside, you don't want to get caught out in the sun and end up toasting your buns"
>You chuckled to yourself pulling up to the parking lot before finally turning in and parking the car.
"Thanks weather girl, but this guy has a little something different in mind."
>"And stay hydrat-"
>With a turn of the key you brought silence to the radio, and only the birds nearby picked it up.
>Slapping the sedan's door shut, they immediately scattered and you strolled into the market.
>You had a busy day ahead of you, but you're ready for anything.

>The line was longer than you had expected.
>Way, way longer than it has any right to be.
>Or maybe that's just due to how many different places you've been today that it's all kind of blurred together?
>You began listing off those so called 'necessities which were anything but.
"Let's see fans, popsicles, a whole lot of bagged ice from the gas station. Water's covered"
>It's around mid afternoon now with the sun fully beating down on you, you're sweating but you cant help but smile.
>You've been back and forth a couple times to your place but the last trip was well worth it.
>Even with all the looks you got in the line after you wound up, a grown man in the toys isle of the local super-market.
>Yet again.
>No stranger to these sorts of isles since picking MLP up, but this time you were in for a surprise along side your main draw.
>A large box sitting by it's lonesome self on the bottom shelf caught your attention
>It was crammed into the water toys section along side the knockoff SUPER-Soakers.
>Kneeling down to a squat.
"Hel-lo~, what do we have here?"
>You traced your fingers along the face of the bold black letters reading it aloud.
"Ginormous Unicorn SPRINKLER..." "Over 6 feet tall"
>You let out a little whistle, genuinely impressed.
>Now here's a Summer toy, where was this kind of stuff when you were a kid?
>Actually come to think of it, would you care back then since My Little Pony was just for girls?
>Ignoring the part where people you've met, and even more people you haven't that would tell you it's still only supposed to be.
>Never heard of them, but looks like they're doing everything right.
>It's a pony, so that's already a win.
>She looked cute if a little stubby.
>Closed thick stencil eyelashes, really helped bring a tranquility to the design.
>But a bright white 'coat' with a long wild mane of three twisting crayon like colors painted on suggested a completely different nature.
>Even though it's just paint, she looked wet.
>And it suited her with a big gray horn atop her head where all the water shoots out of for all the kids to run under their very own rainbow.
>They really knew what they were doing!
>You were a little envious of the idyllic family on in picture, but it quickly passed.
>You know...
>Now that you think of it she she kind of looked a little familiar, like you've seen her somewhere before?
>Well that's going to be in the back of your mind for a while, but you quickly pushed that thought aside getting right back on track.
>Not official merch.
>But MLP isn't the phenomenon that it used to be, so people moved on and stores went back to normal.
>Besides, Hasbro wouldn't ever make something as cool as this.
>But who knows?
>She might have even made someone's waifu if she was more in a g4 style and put on the show
>Grinning from ear to ear, you just found the ideal companion to share your afternoon with.
>The box was a little beat up around the edges but otherwise looked like it was in good shape, and it was the last one here!
>She'll go hand in hand with your main prize of the day, a JUMBO kiddie pool.
>They probably put her there just so it would be easy for those little gremlins to pick up and cart off to their moms and their collective "I want it" would eventually make the mom cave.
>'Clever girl'
>Rubbing the palms of your hands together in excitement.
"She's Perfect!"
I like it pls keep going
that's all i've got written for this update chunk. but feel free to give me some input on what you think she should be like.
nod and take the deal. don't know what upset her but dont want her to get worse if we didn't take the deal.
That was a surprisingly fun read, great work!
>ywn pull a Homer with a giant white, serene, unicorn looking over you.
thanks anon,
i wont be able to get back to it for a bit since I'm a slow writer but I hope that the next update is as well received.
I learned my lesson on spending way too long in the setting introduction the last time I wrote anything. but wasnt sure if this would feel rushed
The more I see it, the more I'm not happy with voting brown.
Agree to the book and don't forget to say your thank you's.
Let's ask her, what are we?
I'm sticking with my vote of Charlie. A "strange" name for such a strange creature.
suprisingly fun
what were you expecting?
>leftist most mane or third mane
do we need to have a vote?
>1 vote leftmost, 2 votes right
>Do we need a vote?
Doesn't really look like it IMO.

I added green because of the real color of stems from cherries, but i might like her eyes as a more ruby red.
alternatively suggest some colors. dont want to end up in the limbo of our MC colors
She must look stunning in a white sundress and hat, oof.
But limbo colors are best
only if you're part changeling where your coat might end up differently depending on the stars alignment
What's the term for aunt youd like to fuck?

I did the crotchboobs pic, so if anyone wants an edit here without the crotchtits then I'd probably get to one next week
We do have changeling magic apparently. ITS GREEN EVEN
>try to use changeling magick to transform
>only our hindlegs change
>Be Kepri Sun
>You need to use stealth
>try to use changeling magick to transform
>everything but our hindlegs change.
I thought our colors changed like a mood ring.
not established in the cyoa so far
I have a Kraving for Krazy
havent been able to write much but want to get back to sprinkler this weekend. do you think small updates would be preferred over waiting between chunks?
its up to you honestly. this thread is kinda slow except when theres something to discuss
yeah that's how it's always been. for whatever reason people stopped spitballing and discussing anything like any other thread. no prompts either. ive thought about if the general needed some time to rest but people still bumped it or kept making the OP when its on life support.

Like I've said for awhile, i really think there's good potential in the idea of the thread, just never really explored or talked about. The cyoa is good because it replaces the need for life-support but we need some other stuff too. I've got too many bootleg ideas and not enough time to write em.
its just the way things go nowadays. some threads are literal graveyards of bumps and imagedumps. its sad really. Thats kinda why i like the cyoa. it helped breathe some life into this thread
> Thats kinda why i like the cyoa. it helped breathe some life into this thread
yeah same, even if there's not really a solid tie to the general so far.

I'm awful with making prompts, so all I can do is write or draw but i'm slow at both and basically there's no regulars left. I thought the writefag behind apuljiyak would stick around but he burned himself out. I'm the writefag behind Twill, but after the mold issue. it's been so long after finally being able to get back to normal life to start writing that again, or get back into the flow. That's why I wanted
to start Sprinkler off with a jumpstart, I wasted so much time on Chapter 1 in MLH
