is a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
fanfic by Tystarr
, also known for A Voice Among The Strangers
Viktoria had never seen the mirror before, now she wishes she had never examined it. With her body twisted into a strange and unsettling new shape she must become accustomed to her new equine form before finding a way home, and along the way also return her body to normal. Her body betrays her with each movement, muscle memory working against her. Even with the new addition of wings to grant her flight and escape, Viktoria has never felt more confined. Will the newly encountered Flitter and Cloudchaser be able to help her?
Solitary Pinion contains examples of:
- Abuse Mistake: Dr. Remedial Oath interprets Viktoria's apparent injuries and psychological trauma as the result of long-term abuse. They're actually the result of the transformation and Viktoria's struggle to adjust to her new body.
- Aliens Speaking German: In contrast to A Voice Among The Strangers.
- Baleful Polymorph
- Digging Yourself Deeper: Subverted and played straight with Thunderlane:
Thunderlane: Whoa, who is that pegasus cutie over there?”
Flitter: That ‘cutie’ is the filly most likely mentioned in the letter. And… for Celestia’s sake Thunder, she doesn’t even have a cutie mark yet!
Thunderlane: Hey! Whoa! Calm down just a second girls! First off, just because I say she is cute doesn’t mean I want to do anything. When did it come to a point when a stallion says anything nice, or… Celestia forbid… compliments a girl that it is automatically assumed he wants to date her or something? Really, this is just an example of how stallions are treated like third class citizens sometimes. If a mare compliments a stallion it’s considered acceptable, but if a stallion does the same he gets accused of hitting on her!
Cloudchaser: I… I guess that is kind of true.
: Exactly! So in the interest of equal rights, I should be able to call that filly cute and gaze at her all I want. (beat
) Hmm… pushed my luck with that last bit a little?
Dr. Remedial: I would say, most likely.
Thunderlane: Would it help if I said you were both cute too?
- Oh Crap: When Cloudchaser realises her mistake in giving Viktoria a bowl of hot tomato soup.
- Spiritual Successor: To A Voice Among The Strangers.
