While they don't look terribad, they kind of lose their uniqueness; it would be more interesting if they kept their "evil" looks but understood that they don't need to be evil. "Don't judge a book by its cover", after all.

>The door to your home bursts open, and several black creatures come pouring in.
>They stand in formation across your living room, staring you down menacingly with their lifeless eyes.
>A particularly large one comes sauntering in, wearing a devilish smile.
>She ducks her head beneath the doorframe to enter and plants herself in the center of your living room, flanked on both sides a squadron of chittering creatures.
>"Hello there, squishy mammal," she croons. "I hereby claim this land, and the lives of all its inhabitants, in the name of the Changeling kingdom! Throw yourself at my mercy now, and I might consider sparing you, so that you might serve my drones in enchanted bon— what are you doing?!"
>With your hairbrush held in your teeth, you take a lock of her hair and straighten it out, looking it over carefully.
"Look at this. It's all tangled and matted."
>You take the brush and run it through the lock in your hand, pulling free each knot with every pass through her hair.
>She reels at your touch. "Release me, foul creature!"
>But, paying no mind to the fire in her eyes, you simply stare her down sternly.
"Stop fussing. I can't fix your hair if you keep fidgeting like that."
>She falls silent, speechless as you take another lock and get to work brushing the length of it.
>She's baffled by your obliviousness to the situation, not entirely sure how to proceed.
>"What use is this nonsense? I am a queen! I have far better things to do than stand around—"
"Don't you want to be pretty?"
>"Pretty? Ha!"
>She pulls away from your grasp.
>"Foolish cretin, I can assume any form I please!"
>With a smug smile, she transforms into a series of tall, gorgeous mares with shimmering manes, one after the other.
>She then returns to her natural form, confident she's bested you.
>"How is that for pretty?"
>You just stare back at her, wearing a completely passive expression.
"That's not you, though."
>She almost does a double take.

>"What?"
>You return to your task of brushing her hair.
"Sure, they're okay, but they're not the real you. You could be much more beautiful if you just took care of yourself, don't you think?"
>She pauses as she reflects on your words, then abruptly shakes her head. "You're not supposed to find me beautiful! My visage should strike terror in your heart, it should make you submit yourself to me completely!"
"You don't want that. Not really. You just need a little tender love and care, that's all."
>She scowls at you. "You dare tell me what I desire?"
>You don't answer, focused on fixing each tangle as you run your fingers through her long hair.
>Several seconds go by as she stands there awkwardly, letting you work on her.
>"Do you really think I'm beautiful?" she asks quietly.
"Of course."
>Her face softens, almost as if she's nourished by your words.
>She quickly catches herself and regains her haughty composure. "Very well, then. Rather than throw you to my drones, I might like to keep you for myself."
>You straighten out the last lock of her hair and step back.
"There. How's it feel?"
>She views herself in the mirror and tries to mask her reaction.
>"It's... alright, I suppose."
"You're looking better already. All it needs is a little trim and you'll be looking cute as ever."
>She smiles softly. "You know, my pet, I think I'll enjoy having you around."
>She drapes a hoof around your shoulder and leads you to the door, her wings flittering with glee. "Come along, now. We have much to conquer, and I want you by my side the whole way."

Survivor's Guilt

Multiple milestones! We're reached part 100, and have surpassed 50k words on ponepaste.
A big thanks to everyone who has been following along and having a share in this adventure!

Bandit mastery is all I have left besides eclipse runs. And hey, update after I get home from the hospital, joy. Bear with my sleepless delirium.

First things first I think that lovebug needs a hug and a pat on the back. Then maybe reiterate my previous thoughts: Survivor's guilt is only natural, just reassure him that there's no shame in getting a little help standing up again before he can regain his independence. And for his hive, maybe we can find out together why things are the way they are, and if changelings can peaceably coexist with other species. He needs to help himself before he can help others. (On that note, probably keep a mental note to find out why exactly changelings are so distrusted and at odds with everyone else. Never know if there's a reason the hive is generally considered 'evil')
In the short term though, I strongly recommend asking him if he feels ready to get some work done tomorrow. Best way to quit feeling useless is to get active, and I think he'll be a lot happier with some exercise. Not like we need to strain him that badly, we can consider it a training run and make sure he knows what to look for while foraging.

As for how quickly we were to befriend a changeling, well, we are kind of the apex predator on our planet, maybe we're just reckless. It helps that everything in Equestria is cute and cuddly, even the things with big honkin' fangs like those.

I think the first reply has everything pretty well covered. In addition, asking Notaulix about the changelings and the other races seems to have come to a dead end, I don't think there's anything more he can tell us, so when we have the chance it might be worth going to Twilight to ask her about the changeling race, under the guise that we came across references to them whilst reading and find the information provided lacking.

The only thing i can think of is that the other races despise them out of fear - after all, a healthy changeling is objectively superior than any other race besides pony demigods like Celestia, Luna and canon Twilight. They can use magic, they can fly, they can shapeshift (which includes turning into majestic griffons), if Nota's anything to go by, they're also very smart and quick learners, and they know offensive magic, like life draining. Then there's the fact that their need of love from other species makes them parasites in the eyes of others. They also have a second-handed fear implanted on them, most of them never seen a changeling do anything bad, hell, most of them probably never seen a changeling at all, but they fear the bugs nonetheless.

Tell him that you feel awful for what his kind has to go through, and that life, in general, is unfair. In our world, there's over literal billions of humans who were, are and will be born is shitty places and know nothing besides famine, diseases, violence and fear, all of that undeserved. As for why you treat him well, you could say that besides not having a reason not to do so, that he reminds you of yourself, in a way: living surrounded by creatures way different than you, with a different culture, and a different history.

Maybe in the future one of the things you could do with Notaulix is reading books about changelings and see where the books are wrong about them. Both as how they are, and their history. But that's for latter... as of now, you must comfort him and tell him you agree, that it would be wonderful if his race could live with other races in harmony, and that you hold no ill will, neither for him or his kind.

I think we should head to our room early to do some reading before bed. 'bout time we saw what they said about changelings.
Hopefully Notaulix is okay sleeping on the couch again after experiencing the majesty that is our bed, though. Maybe ask him if he's okay with it still?
>>
>>36853399
While I'm really curious to see Notaulix transforming and asking him questions (does he need to just observe or he absorbs some sort of magic essence in order to learn how to transform? Once he learns how to transform into a race, can he fully customize his disguise or he'll just be able to mimic someone's appearance?), Anon really needs to get on with the books and learn what the rest of the world thinks about the bugs, and Notaulix's breakdown is a good incentive to do so.

On the other hand, talking about his transformations and letting him impress you with his skills will surely help him getting to a good mood before sleeping.
