Hey, is it okay if I could use this picture as a cover image for a story of mine?

"... Rumors abound that the core ingredient of love-shakes in the Changeling lands are the innocent love and compassion of captured children from cattle races, whether they be ponies, griffons, cows, dragons etc...

... First-person accounts from rescued survivors and Changeling defectors describes the process, in which love from each cattle-child would be extracted in its entirety all at once through a ritual that cause unspeakable pain to the children, saidakin to having their souls torn out (quite possibly the case, too). The extracted love would subsequently processed into liquid form and then made into the love-shakes for consumption in tea-shops and fast-food resturants in the Changeling lands... 

... Hundreds of children would be harvested of their love simultaneously in specialized ritual-chambers in Food-Production Sub-hives owned by major food manufacturing corporations in the Changeling lands, with a production rate of 1000 - 3000 love-shakes per hour and over a dozen varieties of flavors available. Canned versions had recently been introduced into market by the companies of the Nectar Consortium...

...  The Changeling Empire and changeling corporate representatives had, to this day, continue to condemn the speculation as 'baseless', claiming the beverages are normal flavored chemical drinks, and refused to allow inspectors to check the validity of the stories. And unless it is proven, international response beyond diplomatic condemnation is highly unlikely, and that is not even guaranteed particularly considering the increasing stranglehold of Changeling corporate interests in many major nations due to their current economic boom...

... There had been some evidence to support this accusations though, as children disappearance rates at the borders between the Changeling empire and other states had increased by almost five-times since the introduction of the love-shake products, which had since become immensely popular in the Changeling lands, with patterns suggesting this increase is spreading into the heartlands themselves ...

... regardless of the validity of the rumors and recent international condemnations, over 97.5% of Changeling populations interviewed in the Changeling lands had expressed neither disgust nor objections towards even the possibility of the Love-shakes being made from 'cattle' children, and the Changeling royal crown had stated personal approval and her endorsement of Love-shakes. Thus, it is likely Love-shakes will remain popular in the Changeling lands for the foreseeable future..."

(Changeling Tv advertisement for loveshakes)

Changeling announcer: (in strict, barritone voice) Mothers of future soldiers for the glory of the empire, is nursing love to your average twenty and above nymphlings leaving you drained?

(cue to to tired, drained Changeling mother who looks sucked try to the point she's fur and bones, barely able to stand)

Changeling announcer: Yesterday, your government would tell you, "TOUGH!" but now, an advancement has been made in the science of edible love.

(cue to swirling image of loveshake)

Changeling announcer: LOVESHAKES. Freed your young ones on this new beverage to give them the power they need to grow into the future soldiers your empire needs to fend off the foreign hordes. 

(cut to same Changeling mother, now healthy and plumping heavily with her own love, standing over the cots of her dozens of babies, who are now suckling happily on bottles of loveshakes)

Changeling mother: Now that my babies are on loveshakes, I've regained my figure and now have the strength to mercilessly beat the crap out of one of my five worthless, sack-of-shit husbands for cheating on me. (she takes out a bat and stomps out of the room, growling)

Changeling announcer: This product is officially endorsed by her Majesty, Queen Chrysalis Roachanov IV

Chrysalis's voice: (bored, unethusiastic) I officially endorse this product... where's my cheque, you littl peo-- (cuts off)

Changeling announcer: So what are you sitting there, waiting for? A bus?! Go out and buy this product... NOW!!!

(advertisement ends)

Ha! This is hilarious! (As for the segment you sent me, I still couldn't think of anything good to contribute)

I take it you like my deconstruction of love-shakes and the short scathing critique on Changeling morality?

Or I could work on some 'local responses' and I could sent them to you, get your opinion on them, if you prefer?

As you wish. Thank you and best of luck with it.

Oh, I know how I can help. I gave SomeRandomMinion a preview of the first chapter so it helped him out, gave him a feel of the setting. If you would like that, I'd be happy to send it you, especially considering how great you are being for helping me out.

Thanks, but no thanks, I'm good. Got too many things on my end already. Heck, I wrote the love-shake comment only because I was so worked-up I need something to distract myself from stress

Thanks.

(And it's okay, mate. Really, I'm just really only looking for one, two more? A Changeling local and a critical Pony (maybe ENF)?)

Well, however much I may not like it, I cannot argue much with the rational, biological basis of your arguments. Well played.

I did say I had wrote something that deconstructs the whole idea. They feed on love, and what kind of love would be 'sweet' enough to be considered a Changeling equivalent of a beverage? 

And logically they wouldn't care less about how criminal and monstrous if you think about the inevitable Blue-And-Orange Morality an emotion-consuming species would have, and with it their cultural views of other species, or rather, 'Cattle'.

That makes sense.

I put a lot of thought on speculative fantasy creature biology and mindsets. I study Biology after all. 

And you wonder why I don't like the Changelings much? 

Either way, since debating morality with them would be pointless, we all know in the end there is only one way this could be resolved, and it won't be pretty for either side.

Okay, you know what is making this series so great? It's how you're able to work with the Changeling's similar features and still make them each unique, like they you stylize their manes, their frames, their eyes. Well done!
