"It was not your fault...You did your best. Come, let us reconcile, my love."


In stark contrast to their aggressive territorial behaviour, the Necropolis Hive's method of gathering love seems almost harmless. They don't trap ponies, they don't take husks for their hive and they hardly use hypnosis on their victims. Nevertheless their methods are actually very harmful to ponies. Beside draining victims of their love (and thus life energy), ponies in question usually become obsessed with the past; they spend more time around their perceived dead loved ones than living ones.

(Before someone asks, yes, I'll make pictures for Myxine and Miasma too.)

Lately I've thinking that maybe the dead loved one borrows the Changeling's body to talk to their living retaliative. But what happens is the Changeling while this happens feeds off of the love of the pony being directed at the dead loved one. Kind of like paying a phone bill to a phone company. Where the Changeling acts like the phone company collecting the rates for this service. When the pony becomes a husk it means the pony has over drawn on their phone bill with the phone company.

I like what you're doing here.

I never understood how love equaled 'life energy' with changelings. Love is an emotion, not something that pumps through your veins and keeps you alive.

Would someone please explain how people made this 'love = life' connection to me? Because it certainly evades my grasp.

didn't think much about it, it just seemed to fit. i think...that if you love someone, you're willing to give mental and bodily energy to keep that person happy. but if someone just takes and takes, you exhaust yourself.
think about it like this. if you run to the store five minutes before closing to get your lover her/his favourite chocolate, arrive just in time and then get back to give it to them...and if they say "thank you so much" and hug you, you feel it was worth it and are happy. but if they're just like "oh. thanks, i guess. but couldn't you have checked for milk too?" it just gets you down and the depression takes your energy out of you.
i can't really explain it, but if you've ever met someone who just takes and takes and never returns any gratitude or anything, you know what it feels like.
(and if that doesn't do it, you could just say something like "your love for life keeps you alive" ;) )

Part of me is glad there's no good explanations for this, that way I can keep believing love is infinite and you can just love a changeling forever, haha.

Proof that all 'cherngelerngs' are teh evilz and MUST be exterminated by Daleks! 


Cuz Daleks have no love for anything so they can't be fed upon... or something like that.

Don't worry. The Daleks WILL exterminate the changelings.
And Ponies.
And anything that moves.

And anything that doesn't move but does show signs of life.
