AJ's Comfort by SoMA-To-FoRM AJ's Comfort by SoMA-To-FoRM
One of my favorite commissions ever.
Its inspired by a dream I had in October of 2013, things were rough then.
A spiral of dissonance and day to day misfortune left me pretty distraught, and my medication then was keeping me awake at night.

I had this big desire to cry against Applejack during the time, and the only way I could do that was through a lucid dream, and thats what I did. The medication had a weird side effect, if I laid still for long enough I would go into sleep paralysis, which is the first step into a WILD type dream. So when I got there I climbed against her heart, and wept...

The emotional release was very much needed then, I felt better for a while after that.

Dream Entry:



Lucid: WILD induced

I passed through the barriers finally. And I imagined myself as a pony with Applejack in bed. And that's what I got... Except, when I got there, I couldn't move. I was still stuck in a state of paralysis, and I was shaking and gasping... I got scared that I wouldn't be able to cry against her... But she went into action...

"Stuart, ya alright?"

I still couldn't move, I was staggering...

And she embraced me then, and I could move after.... And I let out a whimper and finally did it... I pushed her head up and rested my poll right underneath her throatlatch and busted up in her mane... I cried for what felt like 4 minutes. The tears streamed down my head, down my throatlatch, and then onto the bed.

She held onto my head and rocked me slightly, and she hummed... I felt the vibrations from her voice box against me. And I just continued to cry... Until she began to kiss me on the ears... Which tickles a lot.

I broke from weeping and giggled a little...

"Oh, ya can't cry when yer laughing huh?"

And she brushed my ears with her hooves, and I stopped crying and laughed more.

"Whereelse ya ticklish at?"

She let go and I wiggled around and said

"Nooooo, no tickle fights." but I said it playfully.

She then pushed me over with her head so I was facing up. And she ran her hooves between my elbows... Which tickled a lot more.

"Ooh, ohh, ah found it! Ah found yer ticklish spot! "

And I didn't do anything... I just let it happen...

I laughed and cried tears of joy.... And when she let off, she came over to my side and lay down, and I rolled over and scooped her against me.

I held her as tight as I could... And I made sure our heads were right next to each other...

We looked at each other in the eyes for a second, and I went in and got her right on the muzzle. Tears running as I landed it... And she raised her foreleg and placed her hoof on my cheek. And I said softly...

"Thank you... So much..." And my voice was trembling...

"Ah'll do anything for mah sweet pea."

And she went and licked me right between the eyes... And made a loud smooch there too.

I never felt so safe, and secure...

But then, we hear in the other room


It was Runt, he had heard that kiss.

So Applejack says

"Yer next ya little Runt!"

"Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" Runt screamed back.

"Les go get em." She told me as she was lifting herself away. But I pulled her back and put a sloppy one on the cheek, right over her freckles...

And I saw her blush... That's the first time I've ever seen this galvanizer blush. I made the solstice blush... And all the remaining tension I felt dissolved at the sight of her blushing in my embrace...

I let go and she turned to look at me... She kissed me once more and we both got up and rushed to Runt's room.

He didn't even fight back, he wanted it to happen. We caught him on his bed and smothered him with a parental love...

And at this time the fuzz started, we were all laughing and giggling and laying hugs and kisses on each other... I started to cry again... Because I knew it was ending...

I said to them all teary eyed "I love you both from the top of my heart!"

I just passed into a deep slumber after whiting out…

Til next time, my loves… [The only lucid dream I’d ever sandboxxed in some fashion. Usually, if I go lucid, I just go along with the flow, and not push for things to go my way. I’d lose the surprise factor if I controlled the elements of them.]
