>>37645872>From Nymph to Queen, how much does a changeling weigh?distinctly less than that of a pony of similar sizenulings weigh more, but not too much so
>>37646012I guess that begs the question: How much does a pony weigh? Need a point of reference.Still, I also imagine that changelings weigh a bit less. All those holes in their bodies must count for some sort of weight reduction, if nothing else.Like drilling holes in the non-essential metal parts of a car to reduce weight for performance.
>Post about needing to make a new thread>Forget to actually make a new threadT-thanks Anon.Yeah I figure changelings weigh a deal less than ponies and also that their weight might not change a whole terrible lot when shapeshifting.
what's y'all's opinions on gay bugs
>>37646690Skittlebugs? I dislike almost every part of them, from the design to the writing behind them. The nuling episodes are kind of okay in a vaccuum but they're just such a slap in the face to prior episodes, not to mention a lot of missed potential. Worst thing is they completely replaced the old ones, it would've stung less if not for that.
>>37646709no, dumbassgay bugsif i meant nulings i'd have said nulings
>>37646846Oh well then just peachyAin't my fault if a ton of nerds say gay bugs to mean either one.
>>37646690I think being gay is a sin against God. that being said Jesus died to forgive all of our sins, so they have already been forgiven and I love them as they are. Praise be onto Jesus
>>37646967that, and are we not made in God Almighty's image?if we can be gay, He surely intended that
>>37646969that's pushing it but everybody has their own interpretations of His word so i find no fault in what you say.
>>37646975a true patrician
>>37645872>>37646140Changelings weigh less than ponies unless you love them too much.
>>37647292>unless you love them too much.well duhbut a fat pone will weigh more than a fat bug
>>37647292Of course they do, they have speed holes.
>>37645872But how much would a G5 buggo weigh?
>>37648247Zero stone because they're free from this hell.
>>37646690Would have sex with one.
I regret making this thread.
>>37650124/bug/ has always been a strange one. Also a pretty gay one.
>>37650533>Also a pretty gay one.g o o d
>>37651421Got a lot heckin' gayer when you showed up, though ball sweat anon shall forever hold a place in the annals of /bug/ history.
>>37651444>ball sweat anonyo what the fuck
>>37645872Changelings would weigh less than ponies, for sure. I imagine that during the grubling stage of development they would be at their densest, given their need for nutrients and such at that time.Nymphs would still be more dense per unit volume than your standard buggo, but as they get bigger their weight would more or less remain the same.Full-grown buggos would only weigh like, 50-75% of a pony of the same size.Queens would likely be slightly more dense again, due to needing to provide nutrients and such to eggs and such.>>37646690fags.
>>37651479>fags.i meanduhthey're gay bugsgot any opinions that aren't just reiterations of the question
>>37652718...that nigga grossi just wanna hug, and perchance fugg, the bugg
In terms of speed, maneuverability, acceleration and all that jazz, how do you think changeling fliight differs from Pegasi? Can they fly upside down?
>>37654419Lower top speed, higher acceleration, higher maneuverability. Both pegas and bugs can go upside down with practice, easier for bugs cause they can walk on ceilings and walls.

>>37675980I can't look at this image now without thinking about all the cooking technique discussion from our alt thread.>ywn have a cute changeling waitress cook your meal in front of you right after you order it
>>37676569I still don't know whether to be impressed or disgusted.
>>37675398maid outfits will continue until morale improves
>>37676569Considering that changelings don't really need to eat regular food, they probably aren't good cooks

>>37681719She has one in all of the above
>>37645872So... If ponies reverted to pre-Hearth Warming Eve times in G5, do you think changelings reverted to their black selves? Or they're extinct?
>>37682690>after the ponies split off into kinds love decreased until hives were unable to sustain themselves>the few changedlings that survived lost their new luster and remained as oldlings until the spark came back

>>37691068I'd assume drones need to be dense if ramming into things is their effective war strategy. Also mombug is cute.

Let's discuss something.Out of all the fan bugs, who is best bug? And why?By fan bugs I'm mainly thinking of OC changelings found in stories, but if there's one only represented in artwork I guess that works too.
>>37731771With how little fanfiction I've read, most bugs I end up knowing about are actually terrible. On that note I guess I'd have to say Thorax from Bad Mondays (predates show Thorax) because she actually has character out of the few I know anything about. No art, unfortunately, but I recall her just looking like a typical drone.Only other named one I remember from fics is Ebony from A Voice Among The Strangers. Leaving out my own of course, I can hardly judge whether they're good or not.
>>37731771Haven't read a whole lot, but my like for bugs depends on their personality.Guess I'll go with Notaulix from the cyoa.
>>37731704what's the problem
>>37731771Idol from Changeling of the Guard. Stoic, unflappable, and pic related.
>>37731771the Changeling Queens of Princess Celestia: The Changeling Queen by wren
>>37732284and?~surely you must be hungry for some love, baby~
>>37732287You know I always figured changelings more than anything would have a lot of hang ups about casual sex, that whole lust without love thing. I imagine they'd find it very unfulfilling.
>>37734389but i love bugthey qt
Now y'all ain't planning on fuckin these changelings, are ya?
>>37734818Oh you bet I am.
>>37735965Bug boys in dresses usually are.
>>37736538yesall bug boys are qtand deserve to feel like it
Drones do not wear clothesOnly the queen wears anything, and she's usually not too thrilled about it
>>37737224so what you're saying is: it's good she got overthrown
>>37737248Stop being gay and clothedBe straight and naked instead
>>37737920I'm afraid I can't do that Anonymous.

>>376458726 years ago, while i was in middle school, i wrote a fanfiction about the origins of Changeling. I thought it was a good fit in this thread, even if it's pretty dated at this point:>THE PROTEIN CHANGE-1>Day 1: Elisahm's Laboratories;>The restructuration works are almost complete. We received from Princess Celestia the authorization to effettuate tests on ponies to try the “Change-1”.> The “Change-1” is a protein discovered in fossil ambers millions of years old; according to our research, this protein incremented exponentially the physical and mental capabilities of the predators of the time, making their hunts effortless. >Our objective as such is to perfectionate this protein and test it on our volounteers. If our experiments will give positive results, we'll have a new weapon to fight and free the Crystal Empire.
>>37764918>Day 3>The experiments have begun.>The first tests on our “patient zero”, whose name i will not writ here, yield positive results: the volunteer, a pegasus, has been subjected to physical and mental tests, before and after being injected with the Change-1. >Not only there has been a marginal improvement on her perfomances, but it seems like, as of today, she's become capable of using a primitive form of magic, while not being an Unicorn. >I honestly did not expect we would get it right the first time, but that's good for us: if we keep this up, we'll be able to have a chance against Sombra.continues
>>37764940>Day 7>The experiments are proceeding at an alarming good pace: all the other subjects's body has reacted positively to the Protein, and just like Patient Zero their overall capabilities have improved.>As of now, we are not reporting any negative collateral effect, except for the darkening in some spots of the subjects's mane. Quick lab checks associated no negative symptoms to these "stains", but it's better to keep an eye on them.
>>37764958Day 10>On our scientists, professor Needle Patch, has started to grow wary of the sight of Patient Zero. He affirmed that there's something "unnatural" in her eyes. >A rapid check, in fact, proved something unsettling: inside her eyes, we observed the slow growth of microscopic copies of the same eye bulb.>The lower side of the eyes where full of them, and others were still growing. Patient Zero affirms, although, that she's not experiencing any discomfort, nor pain from this.>The other subjects have not developed the same mutation as of now. Patient Zero will be obeserved more closely from now on
>>37764983As predicted, the mutations have not stopped. This time, they did not affect only Patient Zero>All the subjects were struck by a rapid loss of their hair, while the dark spots previosuly discovered have kept on growing, covering their whole body.>That's not the only thing, though: the skeletal structure of the subjects seems to be changing as well, becoming more stretched, and hollow. This caused in some of the subjects for the skin on their limbs to be teared by the sudden and rapid growth>Patient Zero seems to be the one more affected by the mutation: her entire body seems to have been "stretched", becoming taller with each passing day. Now the growth seems to have stopped, with her now reaching 2 meters in heightDay 20>Something even more worrying has occurred: while other mutations have took place, like their skin now secering an oily substance, excluding patient zero, the intelligence of the subjects has significantly lowered>They seem to have lost all capacity of oral and written conversation. Other tests, like giving them basic instructions, show at least that they can still understand our language.>This is a worrysome problem, and many of my crew are suggesting to send a report to the Princess. But i know we can fix this, we just need time, and luck. I have a good feeling.
>>37765030*first one in the last post was day 17>Day 26>We're still making reasarches on what could have possibly caused these, on first glance, arbitrary mutations>Of course, those have not being waiting for us, but have instead kept going: the eye-sectioning we have observed weeks ago seem to have reached the final stage. Now the subjects' eyes look exactly like those of an insect, with each tiny unit being capable to observe for itself>The pegasus's wings, including those of Patient Zero, have completely lost all their feathers, and the wings themselves have kept getting thinner and thinner, while a a wet and transparent membrane formed over night in place of the feathers>With each day, they become less and less pony-like, while their similarities with bugs become more striking. Something must have gone terribly wrong...

>>37775456What's this particular reality all about?Given the complete ensemble of clipboard, armband and saddlebag with condom, I get vibes of a past successful changeling takeover of a land, which is now at war.In order to support the wartime effort, thousands of love collectors roam the land, collecting the precious resource from the captive inhabitants that is rightfully due to the Queen by Her authority.You WILL fug the bug.You WILL support the hive.You WILL be happy.or elseIt's quite interesting if you think about it.

Grab bugs by the ponut.
Why are changelings always depicted as sexually submissive when they're dangerous villains on the showAlso why does everyone want changelings to "look like what they really are," you would think the TF fetishists would be all over a race of literal shapeshifters
>>37788986The tf fetishists are into the transformation itself, changelings deny them of that.Their transformation might as well be an illusion, it is so seamless.
>>37788986I for one just like the drone design the most of anything in the show, likely from having grown up with xenomorphs, starship troopers bugs, zerg and 'nids and wraith.Plus for me shapeshifting is more of a nice superpower fantasy than something that gets me off.Their base form is just super kissable.

>>37798161I never expected Twilight charging into a changeling’s hive to not get some changeling vomit and schlop and blood on her. I just don’t want to catch her in bed with a changeling. But if she’s in there rolling around hacking ‘em up and she’s got a changeling guide, y’know, taking her into the hive, I’m not expecting her to not get dirty, especially up to her ankles. I don't want to see her kissing changelings, having political succubus with changelings, I don't want to see her ingratiating changelings.

>>37798964Be the change you want to see. Create art, green, or discussion points.Although to be fair, our alt thread seems to be where all the serious discussion is happening these days
>>37749826The tables have turned.
>>37794513Sarcasm is hard to pick out on internet sometimes. :P>>37794515In my head canon changeling queens only lay one egg, and that's when the new queen is to be born. Their hives are formed using magic in the cocoons throughout the hive. Her hive is over 1000 strong in the FiMfic I'm writing.>>37796427Both very true. She's a gorgeous queen.
>>37804348The one right at the beginning of the OP? It's linked multiple times.Once for the thread itself, and two for the short greentexts written over there.https://nhnb.org/fim/res/3333.html>>37804383>flappy wings when boopedVery cute. I want to boop the mare too.
>>37804537>Her hive is over 1000 strong in the FiMfic I'm writing.Be careful with population creep.1000 is a BIG number for a race that's supposed to be hidden and parasitic by nature.Ponyville for instance probably only has around 100 ish residents at most even including outlying farms, and a swarm that big could easily blitzkrieg the whole place in a single night.
>>37804383Ha, cute. Need more bugs involved in boops, as either the booper or the boopee.>>37804537Granted on the sarcasm bit, and I suppose being Anonymous it's also not readily apparent that I'm the same fag who responds to you every time.
>>37804580>ywn get raided by the swarm and be hopelessly overpowered by them in the middle of the nightWhy even live bros?
>>37804580I mean, yeah, if they want to die. Canterlot is in sight of Ponyville, and can probably levy more troops than the hive has population. If everyone's well-prepared, then they can probably get the first hundred soldiers to Ponyville before the first day is over, and Ponyville itself has enough buildup to be an urban warzone in the center, which is the slowest form of fighting.Remember, a conscription rate of higher than 25% is usually unsustainable for more than a few months. Even if the changelings don't have to worry about women being weaker than men, 500 is not a lot of soldiers when most are unarmored and barely-trained for large-scale and there's a walled city literally watching over the target, and losing a battle with 50% of your population committed is basically instant extinction.
>>37806765My point is that ponyville is likely a stereotypical village when it comes to population and they'd be gone in a day.A random town would have more people but for a changeling swarm of that size it'd just mean two or three nights of replacing enough key people to take it over.Not to mention a hive reaching that size would require such a significant amount of love that it practically requires taking over a village or two just to sustain the numbers.A few hundred at most is a far more reasonable number to do whatever you want to do in the fic short of conquering equestria.Mildly related, but a semi-isolated village entirely of changelings is a neat idea to stay hidden in plain sight.Could even have them work as beekeepers to explain the abundance of insect puns.
Thinking of making a changeling sissy OC. Has never been a brony but developed an interest in cartoon horsies recently.Wondering if i should get deeper into MLP or just enjoy the art and porn
>>37646846>>37646709>>37646690>>37646860>gay bugs have made it so homosexual changelings are synonymous with cancer and bad writing.Wtf I love nulings now
>>37807310I like them better with the OG colour palette but the original designs are still the best.
>>37807963Sperged a bit too much i guess but shit, changelings look good specially with the more colorful hair, the black balances out the candy colors, plus theres is something about their more alien design that resonates with me
>>37807247>Thinking of making a changeling sissy OCGo for it anon.
What are some essential changeling fics, or ones that you just really enjoy?I really want to update the story list in the OP with recommended reading, but I'm not that well versed in bugfiction, so I need some help here.
>>37808007>changelings look good specially with the more colorful hairI've always hated hairlings, why would you take away one of the defining characteristics of changelings and replace it with a lazy mop?
>>37808648Doesn't Chrysalis have hair?
>>37808911It at least looks fitting on the Queen, I'm talking about these fucks with regular ass pony hair. Though I'll grant you even with Chryssi I prefer drone's frills.
>>37808911It's a wig ^:)>>37808929This post just made me realize that after all these years, I don't recall ever seeing a piece of artwork with a queen or king changeling with sails/frills instead of hair. Does this kind of thing even exist?
>>37808956In my head it does.Never did anything with them despite having the idea for about a decade now.
You can do a lot with a frill. Do not deny bug their frill.One of my bugs actually does just wear a wig sometimes despite my ranting.
>>37808648i prefer hairlingsmore chance for unique designthen again i like nulings, so my opinion is already tainted in your eyes
>>37807322This looks so much better than what we got.Why did they go with all the garish colors instead of sticking with what works?
>>37811885Whole transformation was a slap in the face, really.
>>37811885Old bad new good.Maybe they planned to have a toyline where you could mix and match body parts to make your own changelings but scrapped the idea.>>37811982>Breaks changeling lore (literally none lf them apparently thought of sharing love before now)>Objectively bad designs (No rhyme or reason, look like something discord came up with)>No conflict, every bug bar chrysalis just insta transforms.>Shits on previous thorax episode.In an alternate timeline the skittlebug transformation is a disease / mind control put on them by Starlight and Discord and Chrysalis has a multi episode arc freeing her hive from this enforced 'friendship'
>>37812608Hell beyond the Thorax ep it also shits on the first Zecora ep (don't judge a book by its cover).You can probably bet money on the fact it was an executive decision for selling toys that they changed their minds on, there's a lot of that shit in the show.>student six treehouse
Are there any fics with changelings being implanted into ponies/humans, gestating, and then clawing their way out of them like in Alien?
Looks like chrysalis found a way to turn humans into changelings
>>37811885They tried to make the buggies look iridescent like some actual beetles are but you can't really do that in 2D without wrecking your established artstyle but for some reason they just rolled with it anyway.
>>37813284>ywn buzz with your bugbros.Feels bad.
>>37813284Stay in your tf thread faggot.
>>37813032from which end does the honey emerge?
>>37813597Look into the face of that stallion and you shall know your answer.
>>37813597the ovipositor, duh
>>37814412That... actually makes sense.
>>37813032>>37815176What does changeling honey taste like? Is it unique?Does it come a variety of colors? Honey naturally comes in a wide variety of colors and flavors depending on what the bees eat.
>>37815608Most likely it leans towards opaque, variance in color, texture, and flavour are based upon hive and to a lesser degree individual and their habitat.
>>37815608>>37815618I'd imagine I'd also depend on the amount and quality of love they gather.
>>37815754That is included under "habitat."
>>37813597Honey comes from the mouth.
>>37816083No, that's centaurs. https://youtu.be/2-DtZ67Dad8?t=16
>>37816925>ywn marry the queen bug
>>37816925That gown makes her look like a grub and thats adorable
>>37818319corn on the cob bug?
>>37818650His fangs'll get stuck.I think it's Notaulix.
>>37818319Cute corn buggo
>>37818319Cuuute, looking forward to seeing it finished Anon!
>>37818854If changelings get their fangs stuck on corncobs, what other foods might they struggle to eat?
>>37822729what happens if i eat her
>>37822729I want to eat peetzer with Chrysalis
>>37823632I think the consensus on food ponies is that they regenerate over time, so as long as you don't take too much at once, it should be fine.
>>37824115you misunderstandi mean eat the whole heris she still sentient after the... processing?
>>37824397Her spirit inhabits your body and takes you over
>>37824450>and takes you overnahshe's another annoying voice in my head now
>>37825742Why don't I ever get a changeling kiss?
>>37816925she did nothing wrong
>>37826359Because you are Pagliacci
>>37825742classic or french?
>>37825742What would the changeling kissing experience be like anyway? Are their tongues really long?Do the fangs get in the way?
Green or red tongue?
>>37828568either is good
>>37828568I'm partial to the green tongue and bugpussy myself, just adds that extra little flair of exotic.
>>37828568I always use red because it's what was in the show.
>>37832569Buggo eating corn! Super cute and comfy artstyle
Encroaching on new thread time, huh?
>>37834497What shall we discuss next thread?
>>37834821potential relations between mothponies and changelings
>>37834821Oh you know, same old. Cute bugs, tall and small. Maybe have the usual covert mini-war between the gays and the straights.
>tfw you occasionally fantasize about being one of, if not the only bug that stays loyal to my queen after the skittlebug-iningIt's an odd feeling.
>>37835498You make me realize I don't like nulings either but every bug I make is an exile or outcast or something and not particularly loyal to the hive.
My life for Queen Medley.
>>37836621She is the most beautiful of the changeling queens.
How dead was the board that the thread survived 11 hours?
Is the Queens crown part of her body, or is it just an object that she made?
>>37838985I'm going to say it's not part of her body, but she never takes it off unless she has something better to replace it.So figuratively part of her body but not literally.
>>37838985It's a part of her, and I refuse to accept otherwise
>>37839156>Bulging vein hornSuper based
>>37839156Thanks for the giftart Camulus.
Ten posts! Panic!
>>37840883KekI don't get it
>>37840880If the thread somehow gets eight or more posts overnight, don't worry. I'll get the next thread started as soon as I wake up.
>>37841295It's probably still gonna be gay.
>>37844204This makes me want a changeling themed boardgame with high quality 3d printed/cast models to play with.
