Honorary /bug/ thread edition

>What is this?
BuggyCYOA is(thus far) a simple adventure involving an Anon who is trying to care for a changeling that he found starving in the Everfree Forest.
Life may be simple now, but many secrets lurk in this world, and things may change at any moment...

May as well get to sleep and start the next day fresh, where we can bring him out foraging with us.
Although on that note, maybe tell him our intention to take him shopping for gear when he's able to transform again, so that it's not a surprise to him.
>>
>>36574803

Poor little fellow. Agree with >>36574824. For now, make sure he's comfortable in his quarters and then it's bedtime. Though, he seems so debilitate that maybe telling him about your intention to have him transform and come with him to Ponyville may sound like you're rushing him.

By tomorrow, let him spend the day studying the books, eating, and resting, just like today, and ask him if he's fond of any specific food or anything that's especially good for bug health. Now, I don't know if you should tell him about how someone might notice that house isn't exactly empty while he's out if the bug let the fireplace burning during the day...
>>
>>36574803
Looks like Nota's love starvation is much more severe than we thought, if it's even spread as far as his ears and body. While he says he'll eventually recover, I'm worried that might not be fast enough at the current rate. Maybe Dr. Anon should prescribe a mandatory 30 minutes cuddle therapy each day to speed things up?

Oh, I can see it. Poor Nota will keep the fireplace lit, the smoke will alert the ponies, and they will find him out. Soon enough, Overlord Twilight will be alerted, and she will head to your house with her troops.

Nota won't stand a chance, of course. By merely acknowledging his presence, Twilight will render him completely immobile. He shall be captured... as will you, when returning home, for hiding a creature made of pure, absolute evil. Surely, you and him were plotting something against the integrity of Ponyville. Equestria, even!

As for punishment... the Purple Tyrant shall oversee that, personally. As you could notice, the Pony knowledge about changelings is... limited. Bordering speculation, at some points. For her next book, Twilight "Mengele" Sparkle shall write the most complete changeling anatomy encyclopedia ever made. She shall imprison Notaulix in Tartarus, where he shall be vivisected for the forseeable and unforseeable future - as Twilight can easily bend the strings of reality, after each session Notaulix shall be fully regenerated.

Anon will have the honor of assisting the heir of the throne personally during these sessions. Sure, before that, he shall be lobotomized and become little more than a mindless drone, but until her changeling research is complete, Anon will be safe.

It's not like you're on a rush so set up the fire before starting the breakfast. Maybe something simple yet satisfying... ask him if he's okay with a scrambled egg with melted cheese sandwich and some fruits. If he's okay with that, then do it.

And while you're working on it... casually bring up that you noticed how he got startled when you told him that you would use eggs on the recipe. Ask him if there is any specific kind of egg he doesn't like to eat or makes him sick if he eats it, maybe mentioning that you yourself can get pretty sick if you eat spoiled eggs.
>>
>>36577257
For the first time, you've updated when I wasn't here. The new thread has changed you, Krivvy.

Anyway we probably should just start with breakfast, but I'm not sure what to make since we probably haven't had bacon since we got here. Do we have a waffle iron? If so, could go with that despite their similarity to pancakes.
If all else fails, pancakes again (or simple oatmeal).

>>36577405
I distinctly recall us not having any cheese, which is why I'm at a loss.
>>
>>36577625
If there's no cheese, then my suggestion is just a simple scrambled egg sandwich I guess. Or, if Anon has anything else that could be used to complement it...

I've said it before, but you're a madman taking this straight to gay town Which I am fine with.

Anyway I think this is a good opportunity to give our bug a hug before we get the eggs and assorted fruits out.

Also I forget if you've mentioned, but how big are we compared to the ponies? And if we have an idea, how strong are we compared to them?

Looks like your story was the one thing keeping the bug threads alive, huh.

>>36578512
I see two options here.

a. If Anon knows what a changeling egg looks like from reading it in one of the books he got from Twilight, tell him the only time you've seen a changeling egg was when reading a book about the different species from Equestria, and reassure him that he never even seen one personally - they definitely don't have them in Ponyville, so as far as you know, ponies don't eat or sell these.

b. If Anon doesn't have the foggiest idea of what a changeling egg looks like, tell him that: that you don't even know what a changeling egg looks like, so he can rest assured that you aren't a egg thief and you never ate one of those.

I'm not trying to take it into gay town, I'm trying to be realistic.
As far as heights go, things are pretty average with what the general consensus is on the matter.
Anon is in the 5'11/6' area. Most ponies standing position head height come up to around his waist, Celestia stands eye to eye with Anon(though she can be taller by several inches if she were to straighten her posture out), and Alicornlets(Luna) arrive around the top of his chest/shoulders area.
In the ponepaste, you can reference lines 547 and 548 when Twilight rears up onto her hind legs to give Anon a hug.

>>36579008
Not necessarily, >>36579460 is right. Somehow I ended up becoming one of, if not the only active changeling content creator here.
Honestly, the whole situation is very demoralizing to me. It's a bad feeling when you want to create and share new content with other people, only to find out that there's seemingly little to no audience left for what you're making.
It's not just /bug/ stuff either. I tried to start stuff in /sun/ and /moon/ in the past and it was a graveyard over there too.
It just reflects the state of the board as a whole at the moment, I think. Maybe I'm just being a 30 year old boomer who remembers the magic of 2012 /mlp/ and wants it to return. Or maybe my content is just bad, I don't know.
One good thing is that the ponepaste somehow has over 160 views already in just a couple days, so maybe some new lurkers will get caught up and start participating.

Either way, I'm going to keep pressing on with the updates. I want to try and at least fill up one thread.

Quickly ask Nota if he is feeling strong enough to assume and maintain a disguise. If not, have him hide in your bedroom, collect your breakfasts together into a single plate, and hide the extra set of dishes, glass, and utensils in the sink.
Then answer the door.
>>

Now, quietly tell Notaulix to head to the most secluded room of your house besides the bathroom, take his food with him and if the need arises, use his magic to mimic a chair or something. Then, yell that you're coming in a second, head to your destiny, and open the door.

I imagine it's a followup on our previous conversation. With that in mind, it'd probably be rude to turn her away. I'd say invite her out of the cold but keep the conversation brief. If it looks like it's going to go on too long, offer to catch up with her later. It's highly unlikely she won't be able to see inside the kitchen sink without actually getting up on the counter like Notaulix has (since everything is human height), so just don't stare at it or the bedroom door.
>>
>>36582228
>highly unlikely she WOULD be able to see
Accidental double negative

Unrelatedly, can you give me a description of Notaulix in detail? Maybe mspaint some legholes onto a stock bug or something. Anything interesting going on with his ears, frill and/or tail? I assume his elytra are blue to match the eyes since that's usually the case (and their regular colour in the show)

Uh oh, asking the difficult questions. I have no 2D art skill, so I'll try to provide a brief description.

Appearance is that of a Chrysalis hive changeling.
Here, there is a degree of sexual dimorphism among changelings, with the males generally being a bit bigger with larger fangs and slightly larger frills.
Notaulix is somewhere between an average pony and Big Mac in size.
When he was found, Notaulix was starving both physically and magically. See lines 34 and 35 in the ponepaste.
Once he regains his normal weight, he would be difficult for Anon to lift up like he does now.
Magical degradation of his body(the holes) is mostly focused on the legs, though is also present in the webbed mane, wings, along with some shallow scoops taken from the outer part of the ears.
Magically, Notaulix's body has already started to slowly recover, as noted in line 882.
Physically, that's something which will just need time for bug to fatten up again. Feed him more pie and cookies.

Hope that helps you out Anon.

Out of curiosity, are you still doing this in AiD? Of so, typically much is by the AI, and do you use it to pad out your own writing or do you sometimes let it make plot related decisions?

Sort of. I still write it out in AI Dungeon to preserve the look, but this has been 100% my own writing for awhile now.
Griffin just doesn't cut it for something like this. It almost never produces anything worthwhile at this point in the story where there's multiple things going on at once.
>>
>>36584125
Damn that puts us on the spot. Personally I was never certain why a leather alternative was such a difficult thing, surely work clothes are a thing even for ponies?

Nevertheless, I would hate to think how Notaulix would fare alone in the house for a full day, but Twilight is going to be disappointed if we decline.
That said, she really should have given us some warning. We didn't get a full work day in on the day we found mister lovebug, and we didn't do any work at all yesterday, maybe we can say we're really behind and need to make up for it today? "Something something if we woke up twenty minutes earlier we wouldn't even be home."
Just ask if it's possible to reschedule. If not, we'll have to think of something (or actually leave Notaulix alone in our cold home since he won't be able to keep a fire going).

Classic Twilight "autist" Sparkle, making plans for other and only telling them afterwards with only an hour to spare.
Even without considering Notaulix, it's still going to be a rush to pack and prepare for an overnight away from home.
Now she's put us in a tough position. I think it would be nice to get the boots issue sorted before the weather takes a turn for the worse, and if we're going to do it soon-ish *anyway* there's no better opportunity than right now. But on the other hand as the other anon pointed out, this means leaving Nota alone in the house for a day and more without a fire. How cold is it right now? And does anon have a thermos? Maybe that's enough for Nota to get by wrapped up in bed under layers of blanket with a bottle of hot cocoa and a good book. Food might be an issue though, unless we think it's safe enough for Nota to get away with a little cooking, otherwise there's only the leftovers from breakfast and raw fruits and veg to eat.

Tell Twilight to go ahead and wait for you at the train station while you take care of a few chores around the house. This should buy you some time to confer with Notaulix. If you later decides against going you can bullshit some excuse about discovering some plumbing problem you need to get fixed or something.

Sad to say, but changelings just aren't as popular as they could be. Remember that the normal /bug/ threads were pretty low-intensity too, and those were the most active I've seen them in a while (even counting the Queen Chrysalis specific threads).
Is there any reason "I have something arranged today that I don't want to miss" wouldn't have flown as an excuse? I know it's what I'd say if something like this was dropped in my lap, regardless of whether or not it was true.

Well it seems we're going through with the trip, maybe we'll get lucky and it won't be overnight. But for now, let's finish our breakfast with Notaulix and give him the news. If he starts having a panic attack maybe we can find another way to worm out of the trip, but maybe he'll be okay if we prep him accordingly.

That in mind, I'm thinking:
-Give him our bed while we're gone. He's not going to be able to keep a fire going so that's probably the best bet for keeping warm.
-Give him whatever he needs to prepare meals. Maybe we can either build a ladder to the counter or put a tray on the kitchen floor for that purpose.
-We already dumped all those books on him, but if there's any other time-killers to give him for the day, may as well bring them out.
And be sure to hug him before we go.

As for the dead thread, the community simply is not as active as the olden days, and there's not much bringing new people in, so it's much more noticeable as it shrinks. Though yeah in the interim, perhaps putting the /bug/ label back in front would be good, this was an experiment.

Anyways, the immediate thing to do would be to tell Notaulix the news.

Not the same anon, but if this thread should also double as /bug/ then it's a good idea to mention that in the next thread otherwise new anon won't know where to look.
>>
>>36587295

Get back inside and call the bug. Tell him about the situation, close the curtains, and explain him about how he will have to lay low in your house for a while. Allow him access to your food hoard and tell him he's free to eat as much as he needs. Also, try to place some of your furniture in a way so he can access everything he needs in the kitchen.

Tell him that he can sleep in your bedroom while you're out, and get your best and most comfortable blankets out so he can use them at his leisure.

With so much free time on his hooves and confined in a small space, he'll need a lot of books to pass the time, at the very least. In addition to your herborism books, allow him to read the books about changelings that you have with you. He might be curious to know what ponies know and think of his kin.

If you can, clean your toothbrush as best as you can with the sanitizers you might have and tell him that if he wants, he can use it as his own, but that you're going to buy a brand new one for him when you're back.

Last but not least, tell him that you know how scared he may be, that you felt pretty scared yourself when you arrived in this world, but that you fully trusts him and you'll be back as soon as you can. Then give him a heartfelt hug, prepare yourself, and head to the train station. Your voyage to the concentration camp with Twilight Mengele awaits. If you're unlucky enough, you might meet Führer Celestia herself.

Preparation Time. Halfway to 100!
There's a ton of good action suggestions this time around, too many to use in one update but I'll mix in some of the rest in the next parts.

>>36587320
I try to strike a balance with the suggested actions, unless it's something which is more or less unanimous. The balance was tipped more in the favor of just going now, so that's what I went with.
Besides, going now avoids the nasty potential trap of "Why?".

>>36587572
Again, I have an idea for the next thread that should be a good compromise. The best of both worlds.
>>
>>36588875
Right after another nap, you psychic you. (It was a very rough night shh)

Anyway I think we would need to actually know what our stores are looking like before we can determine if a supply run is necessary or not. I think option 1 is fine unless there's something desperately needing attention, I just want to reiterate my points in >>36587372 especially the hug.
>>
>>36588875
Unless your supplies are so low that there just isn't enough to keep Notaulix fed for two days, I think it's unnecessary to waste time in another errand. Use the time to prepare the resources you have for Notaulix to use and covering the windows.
>>
>>36588875
Check your pantry first, only go on a supply run if what you have isn't enough to last 2 days, otherwise use the time to make things comfortable for Notaulix.
>>
>>36588875
give him a hug and ask if he will be good on love for a day or two

Hopefully nothing bad happens while we're away, our bug is on his own for now.

As for Twilight's question, just tell her we got curious about how much other species apparently live out there. We pretty much only get to see ponies, after all. Though we can also pry a bit and ask if she knows how accurate the descriptions are for some of them (without mentioning changelings in particular).

Tell her that recently you've been thinking about all the different creatures that inhabit this world compared to your own. You could talk about how you find it curious that some of the creatures here are described as myths in your world, like griffons, pegasi... and unicorns, such as herself.

You could also ask her what does she think of the different races that doesn't live in Ponyville... you could mention that the one you're the most curious about are changelings, since from what you've read about them, they're quite different from the changelings of the human mythos.

More tough decisions. Lies beget more lies, and I *really* want anon to be as truthful as possible, especially to a friend, but also knows how disastrous it could be if the correct approach is not taken. Twilight is a good and compassionate pony, I like to think she'll give Notaulix a chance so long as you don't let her jump to any brash conclusions and do things without thinking. Being stuck on a train with you limits any immediate actions she can do and gives you time to convince her.

Maybe tell her first in vague terms that you came across somecreature in need of your help, and you didn't want to bring him into town due to preconceived notions ponies have against his race. Tell her what he's like, his timidness, and some of your interactions with him.
Only tell her that he's a changeling after you made her promise that she won't immediately out him, not without giving him a chance to prove his peaceful intentions.
>>
>>36590700
I don't know if it's a good idea to tell her now... a changeling hidden in Ponyville? She won't be able to get that off her mind and there's a really high chance that she may confide it to the Führer or her brother. What if someone sends a guard or a agent to check on your house while you're out? The bug will surely feel betrayed as the only way someone would find out about him would be by your word.

I'd keep it low for these days, but indeed the first pony you should tell about Nota is the Purple Tyrant. Just... not now. When you're back from the concentration camps, ask Notaulix about his days alone, then, during the next meal, tell him about Twilight, who she is, what she does, and that she's a good friend of yours and very open minded. Once he's back to health, able to transform, helping you on your errands at the Lost Woods, only then you'd be considering telling her about his presence, and only if he agrees with it. Before that, nobody shall know about him by your word.
>>
>>36590891
Alright, tell her later then. But what do we tell her right now? "I needed to look up a creature I met while in the Everfree, I'll tell you the details some other time"?

I imagine she turned into the snack you love the most, but it's only the packaging of the snack and completely empty on the inside. By the time you find out that you've been japed, it's too late and you're in a cocoon.

>>36590924
We know that some creatures in the Everfree can be really fucking dangerous, especially to the untrained vagrant. That's how this adventure started. Take something bad and say that you ended up closer than you wanted to. You want to go over all the texts again to see if you can figure out anything more about it in case you run into it a second time. Hell, "Tanglehoof vine" is something that's already been named. What if we tell her we fell very close to one's danger zone and want to know how to get out if next time we're a bit more than "close"?

The Royal Armory.

>>36598845
_______________^:)____
>>
>>36599739
May as well ask one of the ponies where you can find the armourer, better than wandering into buildings at random.

Also to keep in mind for later, it occurs to me that the trip to Canterlot may be a good opportunity to pick up saddlebags and winter wear for Notaulix, since no one is familiar with us here. The only issue is sneaking them back to Ponyville without Twilight noticing.
>>
File: file.png (866 KB, 1000x563)

>>36599739
See if there's a royal guard around the area you're in and ask him. If not, enter the closest building, look for whoever seems to be the pony on charge and ask him about there to find the armourer.

>>36599769
I think that the armourer will have to take your measures, then get the materials and THEN start working on your new boots - which won't be an easy task for as experienced as he is, it's pretty much certain that this will be the first time he'll be making a pair of human boots. All that is very likely to take a few days... the armourer will ask Anon to come back in a few days at best. When you do come back alone, then you can get the saddlebag and winter gear for the bug.

Now, if for some miracle the armourer can get your boots ready in less than one day... then you'll have to come back to Canterlot some other day. Since it takes about an hour to get there by train, you could easily take one day off, take a train at morning, get there, buy what you need, then head back.

As for taking the gear with you when you're going back with Purplesmarts, it would be way too suspicious.

>>36598845
That's the grand finale. Anon will fill Notaulix with his love, and the bug will turn into a jellybean bug.
>>
>>36600075
I was just listing it as a possible opportunity. If we're gonna wait terribly long we may as well go with the original plan of waiting til Notaulix can put on a disguise and pick out his own stuff.
>>
>>36599739
Sloppy, the guardsmare should have given you the direction. Turn around and ask them through the gate where the armorer is.

>>36600351
That was a good suggestion, it's just that I have no idea on how to do it without her noticing...

Whoops, was wrapped up in stuff this time, luckily I'm up way too late.

Anyhoo, if that's how it's gotta be then that's how it's gotta be. Though we're certainly not going very far without shoes, so I guess we can either twiddle our thumbs for a few hours or check out the rest of the area.

>>36601218
This being the case I think we can definitely pick up Notaulix some gear. At least the stuff we don't need his size for.
>>
>>36601965
It's not like you have a choice so hand the boots to him.
>>
>>36601965
If it means the new boots can closely match the old one then it's well worth a couple of hours wait.
>>
Well, the new pair of boots is exactly why you're there, no? Give him your boots. If the work is good enough - I'm sure it will be - you could make a note to yourself and checking if he could make an extra pair of boots and a pair or slippers if you happen to come to Canterlot again in the future.

By the way, when you're passing your boots to him, praise this glyph skin material and say that you wonder why griffons still use leather when this glyph skin appears to be better in every way without any of the... downsides.
>>
>>36602853
They probably can't make it and refuse to acknowledge that ponies can make something better than they can. In short, Pride.

Just to reiterate, if the beasts happen to be the changelings (IIRC the comics had one issue depicting a war where the changelings completely annihilated a pegasi kingdom because they had no way to even defend themselves against changeling magic), you'll have a subject to talk with Purplebutt on your way back home. You could ask her more details about that war, and then, more info about changelings.

By the way, if Sturdy asks you how you knew they were changelings, tell him you've been reading books about races and they looked particularly vicious.

Happy part 60!
Thanks for staying interested in this friends, I've been having a lot of fun presenting this.

The comical thing would be if she went to the armourer to find us.

Well, maybe we can kill time looking up more stuff on changelings, though grab one or two other random books in case Twiggy inquires, should she happen to find us.

First, ask the librarian if he has seen Princess Twilight. If yes, then ask him if she told him or he heard where she left for.

If you get a point, then head there. If not, turn back to the guards and kindly tell them that she's probably with Sunbutt, and ask them if they see her around, to tell her he's on the library. Meanwhile, you could check a book about bugs.

I feel for you, Anon. There's really an overabundance of selection here in the states, since we both make a ton of our own stuff and have a wide variety of other drinks imported from Mexico and other countries.
Admittedly I don't actually drink soda or other sugary things very often, but when I do I aim for the more premium choices.
Here in WA state there's a place about 3 or 4 hours away from me that makes a large variety of both classic and new sodas using cane sugar and high quality flavorings.
Pic related is some of what they make, and it gets sold all around the region. My current favorite from them is a butterscotch rootbeer.

Possibly. If it has Orca Beverage printed somewhere on the label, then yes.

Turn 360º and moonwalk your way back to the room. Not only this could get you in trouble, but it would be extremely obtrusive and disrespectful. Not only something a Brazilian guest would do, but a Rio de Janeiro guest.

By the way, if a guard, or one of the sisters walk on you, just comment that you've agreed to join your friend Twilight later and you thought of taking a walk to pass the time, and that you're absolutely amazed by the beauty of the castle.

I'm pretty sure that would take you to season 7 Equestria at the earliest.

Alright, how about the hard mode then?
Every day and night that you spend intimately with Thorax, the kind of Equestria you end up in advances backwards starting from S9.
How far do you go?
Although the challenge is kind of a moot point if Thorax happens to be your husbando, I guess.

All the way back to the founding of Equestria

Based. What exactly would you do during that time period though?
The more I think about it, I don't think I've personally seen any fics involving a human in that time period. Of course, I've never really looked either.

I just wanted to rut the faggotdeer into an incoherent drooling mess every night for a thousand years straight, I couldn't care less what I chose to do afterwards.

Twisted Fate is set before Luna's banishment with a human-turned-changeling protagonist, it hasn't updated in years though.

I think you'd be better off with the husbando option, then you get to rut every night for eternity.

Also...
>human-turned-changeling
That just brought back a memory of what may have been one of the most ultimate, Cold Steel the Hedgehog OC donutsteel tier greens I ever read years ago.
The whole premise of the story was Anon being wronged by something that I can't remember, falling into a pit of changeling goo full of anger, and then awakening after being transformed into a changeling king.

Immediately has multiple changeling queens after his dick, and he announces his name to be Fury or Anguish or some edgy kino like that.
Don't really remember any details besides that. The story basically didn't make it past the prologue before it was dropped.
I'll try finding it again later. It's a good laugh.

When people don't shake hands, they bow.Unless we're informal enough to nod.
In either case it doesn't seem like we're beginning the conversation.
