Blog / Ask Princess Molestia

Go To
We're glad you think we're sexy, your Highness.

If "Ask Octavia" is the longest-running Ask a Pony blog, then Ask Princess Molestia (and Gamer Luna) is one is the most (in)famous. Run by Brony community artist superstar John Joseco, it follows the gag-a-day exploits of a very, very promiscuous, lilac-maned version of Princess Celestia. The blog was later extended to include her sister Luna, who here is a spirited gamer (and comparatively a prude).

On January 17, 2014, JJ officially retired the blog in order to focus on his art, as well as his other webcomic, The Hunters of Salamanstra.

The character of Gamer Luna is now being continued in her own (SFW) tumblr. This is not to be confused with Ask Gamer Luna, by Swedish brony Sallymon.

Try to remember not to discuss the circumstances (or lack thereof) surrounding the blog's takedown/closing. Odds are, you're going to be wrong, or somebody will THINK you're wrong, and we all know how that turns out.



  • Aborted Arc: There was some hint of Molestia dealing with a town with a dark secret, but nothing ever came out of it.
  • Adorkable: Gamer Luna. She gives heart attacks with adorableness.
  • Affectionate Parody: The sidebar of the blog bore the words "If you take this site seriously, you really do belong on the moon."
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: After a Drinking Contest between Molestia and Luna, the latter changes into Nightmare Moon and they have a threesome with Queen Chrysalis.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Molestia seems to have had genuine feelings for Discord, masturbated to Queen Chrysalis' ass and had a brief fling with King Sombra.
  • All Periods Are PMS: "How does Luna handle her 'time of the month'?" "GRAAWRR!"
  • Anything That Moves/Extreme Omnisexual: Molestia will molest anypony, even her cousin, the chubbies, humans and her own sister. Not even Daring Do, a fictional fictional character, is safe, nor are tentacle monsters, giant aliens, or even inanimate objects.
  • April Fools' Day: April of 2013 had the princesses swap their roles and turn the blog into Ask Gamer Molly + Lusty Luna, complete with a video. Judging from how badly they are acting it seems to be an in-universe gag.
    • Posts made since then seem to indicate the two were unaware of the personality swap. Luna in particular was shocked.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: If Molestia could clone herself she said that it would involve ambushing more ponies, having a clone orgy and... exploiting Facebook games.
    • For bonus points they are playing the My Little Pony game for the Android.
  • Art Evolution: Luna was originally drawn as she appeared at the end of "Elements of Harmony, Part 2", but soon changed to her "Luna Eclipsed" form.
  • Art Shift: The blog is usually drawn in a simplistic, sketched style with only a handful of colors for the different characters (usually a couple of shades per character), but occasionally there will be high-quality, full-color installments marking special occasions.
  • Ascended Extra: Gamer Luna has been steadily going from occasional cameos to being a recurring character who shows up frequently to take her sister's place in answering questions and to deliver a regular dose of adorkable-ness. Her name is even in the title now!
    • She even got her own blog, "Ask Gaming Princess Luna" following the termination of APM.
    • Derpy Hooves has been appearing as Luna's gamer friend fairly often as well.
  • Aside Glance: Bon Bon gives a very understandable one.
  • Ass Shove: Molestia greatly enjoys having various things inserted into her backside. The most recent included her with more than a dozen lit sparklers stuck up there for Independence Day!
    • She does it again for the 2013 Independence Day post (albeit not quite as many this time around).
    • And an accidental case with Rainbow Dash doing this with herself during a Sonic Rainboom. Here.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever / Humongous Mecha: One post showed Luna and Derpy piloting one of the Jaeger mechs from Pacific Rim.
    • The very next post showed a giant Molestia confronting a Kaiju attacking Equestria.
    • Another post showed a giant Molestia (sporting a particularly unnerving Slasher Smile) looming over a huge wall as an homage to Attack on Titan.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Molestia has a "63 Ray Gun" that turns its victims into the opposite gender for the day. All of the ponies generally look attractive after being hit, but of particular note are Applejack (who becomes so attractive that his even his brother is impressed) and Trixie (who, according to Molestia herself, could even give Big Mac a run for his money).
  • Audio Adaptation: Most notably by MEMJ0123, endorsed by JJ himself. There have also been a few other unofficial examples.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Plenty of examples with Luna and Molestia. Above all else, they are sisters who overall love each other. REALLY love each other, Luna included, even if she's not as upfront about it.
    • In a more recent one Molestia returns with gifts for Luna with no motive or attempts of molesting. She just wanted to be nice to Luna... And then Derpy ruins the moments by attempting a flying group hug.
  • Bear Hug: Luna does this to Fennekin (complete with bugged-out eyes), her starter Pokemon from Pokemon X and Y during her Cuteness Proximity moment mentioned below.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: The poor maid ponies...
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: When Trixie gets hit with the r63 ray, Molestia says that "he" is on par with Big Mac in that area. Trixie is delighted to be better than Twilight at something, and Molly's immediate reaction is to want to take it for a test drive.
  • Black Comedy Rape: While Molly doesn't outright sexually assault the ponies (on-screen at least), she still sexually harasses and occasionally fondles them to her hearts content, much to the embarrassment of her victims. All of them are played for laughs.
  • Bound and Gagged: Happens twice to Rarity from Ask Lil Miss Rarity, then to an unfortunate maid.
  • Brain Bleach: Prince Blueblood wishes he had this after seeing Molestia having a rather passionate moment with Discord... while the latter was still a stone statue.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite being gluttonous, rather lazy, and supremely perverted, Molestia still has all of the power and intellect of the normal Celestia.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Luna denies that there's anything between her and Derpy, and she goes to Derpy to ask if she has any feelings for her; Luna chokes.
  • Cerebus Retcon: As it turns out, the reason why Derpy has been staying with the princesses at Canterlot castle so much is that she's been homeless since December of 2012.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Molestia sports these pretty often when doing mischief unto her subjects. Can sometimes border on a Slasher Smile in some cases...
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Molestia towards Twilight in varying degrees. Sometimes borders on Yandere, since Molly's made it clear that if Twilight ever gets a boyfriend, things will get rather... nasty.
    • Reaches its creepy conclusion when it's revealed that the true reason that Molestia turned Twilight into an immortal Alicorn is so she can have Twilight all to herself. FOREVER.
    • Naturally, she's not at all happy about the possibility of Twi getting together with Flash Sentry. Luckily for Flash, Molly hasn't deemed it necessary to Murder the Hypotenuse just yet, and is content to keep him under surveillance.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Shining Armor and Cadance start getting intimate during one of their get-togethers, Molly suggests that she and Twilight join in, prompting the following exchange:
    Twilight: But that's my big brother right there!
    Molestia: I'm pretty sure he can handle the three of us.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment:
    • The last in a series of punishments for Trixie has Twilight give her an exam with a one-hour time limit. The exam itself looks to be several hundred pages long, and consists mostly of bizarre sexual questions.
    • The exam mentioned previously didn't quite turn out the way Molly wanted, so she thought up a new punishment for both Twilight and Trixie. It involves maple syrup.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Molestia's not opposed to getting dressed up if the occasion calls for it, and she even puts on cosplay shows once in a while.
    • She even gets Luna involved, whether she wants to or not.
  • Covered in Gunge: The result of Molly's version of the Summer Sun Celebration.
  • Covert Pervert: Luna has been shown to have some traits of this.
  • Crazy-Prepared: When the Summer Solstice comes, Everypony Is Ready for the Occasion. Well, Sorta.
  • Crossover: The blog has had appearances by ponies from various other pony tumblr blogs, as well as characters from other franchises entirely.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Luna has this reaction when she manifests her starter Pokemon from Pokémon X and Y.
  • Dating Catwoman: Molestia admits that she has a thing for bad guys, and that she's been in relationships with Discord and King Sombra in the past. She was dumped in both cases.
  • Deconstruction Fic: Molest!, which shows what really happens when someone who has sex with everything that moves and even things that don't. However, it does go ahead and give it some Reconstruction as well.
  • Deep-Immersion Gaming: This is standard procedure for whenever we get a good look at Luna playing video games.
  • Demoted to Extra: At certain points in the blog, Molestia herself gets much less screentime. It's lampshaded.
  • Depending on the Writer: Some of the posts has Molestia being truely affable and considerate to ponies' feelings despite making really inappropriate sexual advances while some others has her acting somewhat sociopathic and very self-centred to a point of not giving a damn about others.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Molestia often deals this out to those unfortunate enough to incur her anger, even for perceived slights. In one instance, she claims to have thrown Applejack in the dungeon because she thought AJ was winking at her Twilight during the ceremony honoring the Mane Six for defeating Discord.
  • Dramatic Thunder: When Luna makes a declaration, this makes sure everyone knows about it.
  • Dream Walker: Luna's been giving us details on her various dream walks ever since the power was revealed.
  • Drinking Contest: Between Molestia and Luna for New Year's 2014; neither remembers who won.
  • Erotic Eating: The blog's icon depicts molly suggestively eating a popsicle (during Christmas, the popsicle changes to a candy cane). In the blog itself, one of Molly's most notable uses of this trope involves a tootsie pop.
    • Molly's also fond of pouring various kinds of syrups on herself and making others lick it off.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Molestia won't touch certain fetishes, such as necrophilia or vore, and won't violate anyone not of legal age. Nor will she fart in Luna's face while the latter is sleeping.
  • Exact Words: "I will be watching his ass. HIS ASS!" Poor Flash Sentry...
  • Fantastic Arousal: Apparently rubbing a unicorn's horn enough can have explosive results...
  • Flat Character: Generally speaking, Molestia doesn't have much in the way of character development, and is just there for fanservice (however... see Hidden Depths below).
    • Gamer Luna isn't much more than a consummate gamer (much like Molly's a consummate sex fiend), and the Straight Man to Molestia, aside from the usual Hidden Depths.
  • First Kiss: Luna hasn't had hers yet. This is quite an amazing feat of vigilance (and luck) when you consider that she lives with Molestia.
  • Freudian Excuse: Molestia seems to have some sort of problem in regards to her mother, of all ponies, as the mere thought of having to meet her mother makes her extremely scared and vulnerable. Though considering her mother is the kindly Lauren Fausticorn, it's a mystery as to what these issues may be.
    • It's implied that Molestia is desperate to avoid having to discuss her sex life.
    • Later on down the line, we start to get a look at why Molly's mother is such a tender subject: Turns out that the last time they had seen each other was just after Nightmare Moon had been sealed. While Fausticorn understood that Celestia didn't have a lot of options at the time, she still felt that Celestia could have prevented Luna's corruption entirely if she had been a better sister, and left after making Celestia promise to behave herself from then on. Celly's subsequent descent into debauchery as Molestia is thus a major source of self-shame, as she believes that she's long since broken her promise.
  • Gamer Chick: Luna, of course! Derpy also appears to be one.
    • Cadance is slowly developing into one.
    • Molly briefly became one when she and Luna Swapped Roles during the April Fool's installment mentioned above.
    • Luna and Derpy are often joined by Belle Eve, the ponysona of the NeoGAF forum.
  • Gender Bender: Molestia has a ray gun with this effect.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Even though the blog is suggestive as hell, it isn't outright explicit. But there has been two instances in which the word 'fuck' appears; Molestia says it when giving wellness wishes to a fellow ask-blogger named Flutterfuckershy, and Luna blurts it aloud when she thinks it would be censored. (It wasn't.)
    • Although Molestia did indeed get away with saying 'fuck' in its literal noun form, the catch being that she said it in Swedish. The bottom panel translates out to "Gah! I’m so horny! I need a good fuck right now! GUARDS!?"
  • Glomp: Luna does one to Molestia when the latter returns from a trip to Manehattan. The two then get glomped in turn by Derpy.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: A couple of posts have had Molestia speaking in languages other than English; she's been shown speaking French, Swedish, and German. The latter being a bit less 'gratuitous', since she was attending Galacon, a brony convention held in Ludwigsberg, Germany and was addressing Canni, the con's mascot pony.
  • Hand Gagging: Done on a couple of occasions; first by Luna to Molly, then by Molly to Twilight.
  • Happily Married: Cadence and Shining Armor. A bit too much as Luna keeps walking in on them.
  • Heartbreak and Ice Cream: After being rejected by Discord, Molestia proceeds to bury her face in a container of ice cream. She still has feelings for Discord...and King Sombra, apparently (though that may just be lust)
  • Hidden Depths: Yep, even Molestia has these.
    • They began to surface when Molestia's mother first appeared. See Freudian Excuse below.
    • It's also been shown that she has nightmares where she is a monster, hinting at some self-hate.
  • Imagine Spot: Molly has one when answering a question about what a wedding between her and Luna would be like.
  • Incest Is Relative: Molestia will not only shamelessly molest her own sister, but also tries to talk Twilight into doing it with her own brother.
    • And Applejack doesn't need to be talked into it.
    • Luna herself has willingly gone along with some of Molestia's antics at times, though she's usually the more reserved character otherwise.
    • Cadence has at least once been shown willing to go with it, to Molestia's surprise. Presumably because Shining Armor was involved as well.
    • This post shows an Imagine Spot on the subject of marriage. That's how straight this trope is!
    • This post shows Twilight reading a diary entry that starts off describing Molly and Luna going at it, but switches to lyrics from a certain sitcom just before it would've violated the blog's content rating limit.
  • Interrupted Intimacy: Luna had the displeasure of catching Shining Armor and Cadance in the act. Twice!
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Princess Molestia is a dirty, shameless pervert who molests, teases, and gropes other ponies almost daily. But for the most part, she's very affable and despite her obvious kinks, fetishes, and her occasional sociopathic, narcissistic, selfish tendencies, she doesn't seem to intend to insult nor harm other ponies who don't want to go with her advances. Plus, she truly cares for her little sister and friends and tends to be considerate of their safety. For the most part.
  • Kinky Spanking: Molestia and Twilight decide that Trixie still needs to be punished for the Magic Duel, so they tie her up to Twilight's bed like a chariot, and drives Twilight around, who is whipping her to make her go faster. They make a background appearance in the next comic, and Trixie is starting to like it! A later strip has Trixie insist on being spanked with a paddle.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: Molestia and Luna during new years. Or rather, they would have kissed had Derpy not gotten in the way.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: None other than the big sexy herself, Molestia.
    • Apparently the Representatives of Saddle Arabia. To the point where even Molestia herself was satisfied and they still wanted to keep going.
  • Male Gaze: Molestia is extremely proud of her hindquarters, and as such she takes full advantage of this trope.
  • Medium Awareness: Molly is the first to point it out.
  • Messy Hair: Molly exhibited it in this installment, and then Luna in another.
  • Moment Killer: One of Derpy's Running Gags. The Jury is out on wither or not she is doing this on purpose.
  • Mood Whiplash: As per the previous trope, whenever the subject of Luna's and Molestia's mother comes up, the tone suddenly becomes much more somber.
    • Father's Day had Molestia and Luna lamenting that they knew nothing of their father, only for Molestia to jokingly suggest they have Twilight's father fill the role.
    • Late December 2012 comics had the joke of Derpy living in the castle's Christmas tree. After the holidays are over and the tree is taken down, Derpy reveals she had been kicked out from her home since December and without the tree, she is now homeless. This part isn't played for laughs.
  • More Dakka: Luna pulls this off quite handily when asked about Borderlands.
  • Nerdgasm: Luna tends to have these whenever really awesome game announcements are made. Sometimes, cleanup is required.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Some of Molly's facial expressions can be unsettling, especially knowing what she does in her free time...
  • No Ending: One was planned prior to the blog being shut down.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: Derpy's reaction to the idea of watching Birdemic.
  • Noodle Implements: Molestia threatens the Mailman with a partially peeled banana... that's wearing a top hat.
  • Oh, Crap!: The typical reaction most of Molly's victims have when they realize what their Princess has in store for them.
  • Or Are You Just Happy to See Me?: When Molestia uses her transformation gun on Applejack, turning her into a stallion, he meets his brother, Big Macintosh.
    Big Macintosh: Oh my! Are you that happy to see me?!
  • Or Was It a Dream?: The 2013 April fools role reversal. After it ended, Molestia and Luna acted as though it never happened, and were even surprised (and in Luna's case, mortified) to see the april fools updates on the blog. However, subsequent updates hinted that it might have have actually happened.
  • Orgasmically Delicious: The Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness had this kind of effect on Molestia.
  • Parental Abandonment
    • Disappeared Dad: Unlike their mother in the next trope, Luna and Molestia have no idea who or where their father is.
    • Missing Mom: Ironically, we only learn this upon actually meeting the royal sisters' mother. Heartbreakingly Justified, as their mother can only rarely travel to their dimension, and then only for a few hours at a time.
  • Parents Know Their Children: When Luna meets Lauren Fausticorn while cosplaying at Wondercon.
  • The Peeping Tom: Molestia may love to participate in amorous proceedings, but she doesn't always need to. She often spies on other ponies either personally or with hidden cameras.
  • Personality Swap: April Fools Day 2013 featured "Ask Gamer Molly and Lusty Luna", with Molestia being the Gamer Chick and Luna being the Lovable Sex Maniac.
  • Precision F-Strike: Luna, of all ponies. In this strip which lampshades awareness of speech bubbles, Luna happily blurts out "FUCK!", thinking that it would be censored, seeing that this isn't an explicit blog. It wasn't.
  • Rage Quit: Luna's can be explosive. Literally.
  • Schmuck Bait: In the final post (NSFW site) of Ask Princess Molestia, a questioner asks "so molly if i gave you a random button, would you push it?" Molestia is smart enough to ponder the consequences seriously, when Luna rushes in and repeatedly mashes the button. Ask Gaming Princess Luna later confirmed that the button was the In-Universe cause for the Molestia blog being deleted and Molestia being trapped in space for subjective eons, which transformed her (back?) into canon Celestia.
  • Screw Yourself: There's been several times where Molestia has engaged in an orgy with multiple clones of herself, one of which lasted for at least several days.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: There's a mild subtext between Luna and Derpy, mostly by accident on Luna's part (for example, singing the "Heeeey sexy lady!" part of "Gangnam Style" just as Derpy enters the room). Luna denies it, but Derpy doesn't seem to mind. It's not entirely clear how much of it Derpy understands, though.
  • Shipper on Deck: Molestia now seems to be actively hoping Luna and Derpy will get together.
  • Shoot the Messenger: Jealous that Luna is getting more fan mail than she is, Molestia kidnaps the mailman.
  • Shout Out: This post has one pony quote the Tag Line from AVP: Alien vs. Predator when seeing a giant Molestia taking on one of the giant monsters from Pacific Rim.
  • Sick Story Arc: Molestia's horn breaks in the aftermath of the changeling invasion and she spends several weeks recuperating.
  • "Silly Me" Gesture: Derpy does this when Luna discovers she'd been watching her Singing in the Shower.
  • Singing in the Shower: Luna is shown doing it here.
  • Small Reference Pools: The games Luna plays tend to be whatever is most popular at the time, and they're often big-name releases such as Mass Effect 3, Diablo III, Halo 4, and new consoles such as the Wii U and PlayStation 4.
  • Spit Take: Molly when one of the readers asks if all the access to pastries and cake in the castle could cause Twilight to gain weight.
  • Stealth Pun: Molly and Luna can occasionally be seen with their manes tied up in ponytails.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Molestia is asked if she has a dark side like Luna/Nightmare Moon. She doesn't, so when she gets really angry, she tries to get Nightmare Moon to take her place.
  • Swallowed Whole: Happens to Molly when she experiments with vorarephilia.
  • Swapped Roles: Molly and Luna pull this for the 2013 April Fools submission.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Molestia and Twilight.
  • Tempting Fate: Luna claims that if an official release date for Half Life 3 is ever announced, she'll become "Lusty Luna" (from the April Fool's installment) with bedhead for a week.
  • The One That Got Away: Discord of all characters, is this for Molestia. Since Discord is an even bigger troll than she is (as well as genuinely angry that she turned him to stone...and then rubbed her body on him while he was stone), he flies away, leaving Molestia to drown her sorrows in ice-cream.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Trixie turns out to be a masochist.
  • Totally Radical: "Gamer Molly" during the April Fool's Day 2013 strips.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: When it comes to cake, Molestia has NO self-control.
  • Troll: She might not be a full-time trickster like Trollestia, but Molestia is definitely no slouch when it comes to mischief.
  • Molestia Out Shopping Some of the more recent episodes is about the escapades she gets into that don't involve (intentional) molesting.
    • Also she likes to walk/fly around singing to herself.
  • Viva Las Vegas!: A couple of installments have been about the Princess' trip to the ill-fated Las Pegasus Unicon convention, with the Mane Six and Derpy tagging along.
  • Weight Woe:
    • Played for Laughs, naturally. Despite how completely unashamed she is otherwise, Molestia still worries about her figure.
    • She does ban cake because of how fattening it is, after Twilight starts putting on weight.
    • Luna doesn't seem to worry about it as much, but she seems to be in better shape anyway. After a long junk food fueled gaming session of Grand Theft Auto V, Luna is more worried about being a slob rather then putting on any extra pounds.
  • Yandere: If this post is any indication.

How well does it match the trope?
