If you never write another Trixie-Maud story, I'll be happy as long as you keep doing Coco-Thorax stories.

And I'll be happy if you never do a Coco-Thorax story as long as you keep - whatever new idea you have planned afterwards going.

Or, maybe have Maud and Trixie move into the Changling Hive for (insert perfectly logical reason here), and have a story with all four.

Hey, just because I don't like people more than a year younger than me doesn't mean everypony is like that.

Besides, he's clearly reached sexual maturity; does anything more specific really matter? Nopony can call you a pedophile for this, and that's the important part.

Derpibooru comments raise an interesting point: why are they declining? How long has it been since they lost Chrysalis? If their lifespans are so short, do changelings even live long enough to be legal (insofar as that matters, considering that they probably have no legal status in Equestria)?

It raises another question: how long do ponies live in Equestria?
Over 2000 years if you count Princess Amore.
Real horses reach full adult development by age five, but can this make sense in MLP world?
Uncertain, considering what Sweetie Belle looked like at age 5. The Cake twins are probably approaching 5 or older by now too, especially if you consider EU sources.
if only the Queen can perpetuate the species, then we can assume there have been no new newborn changeling since Chrysalis departure but some have died from old age or left for various reasons.
I guess technically speaking, it'd only take one old or sick pony dying for the hive to be "declining"; it doesn't necessarily mean that they're in an immediate crisis.

Regardless, enjoying the series; looking forward to more if you continue it. (Likewise with Trixie and Maud and Memory Lapse.)

You're right, I forgot that Sweetie Belle looked like this at 5! So their lifespan is clearly not the same than real horses :)

And if the lifespan of changelings is shorter, shouldn't they be consider legal before the age for ponies?

In the first comic, if we say changelings's lifespan is shorter as they are bugs, we can assume Thorax is legal for a changeling (as he is a leader), but he would be too young if he was a pony. So the gag is more about cultural bias, it's hard for Coco to assume she's dating someone that young, even if he's legal from a changeling point of view.

For the second comic, if only the Queen can perpetuate the species, then we can assume there have been no new newborn changeling since Chrysalis departure but some have died from old age or left for various reasons.
However, I assume these new changelings can probably reproduce. In the orginal script of this strip, the changeling said the law has to be reformed because it's still written that the Queen is the only one allowed to perpetuate the species. But it took too much space so I didn't keep it.
Or maybe they can reproduce, but they didn't notice it yet... The mating season will be full of surprises this year! :iconplottingtwilightplz:

It more of a guess because Twilight was trying to get into magic kindergarten at the time, and in the real young mare are call fillies when there are five. It not me who think this most of the fandom have come up with the same age different.

Don't know why it been that way for a while, also the writers for some reason has been saying that by the end of season 5 Spike is no longer a kid. What this mean they haven't said but they keep at so I'm guessing it for a future episode

For age guess? Because that just fandom theory you could find that anywhere. Or the twitter about Spike, if is about this I don't really care enough to dig into the writers tweets to find the links. I just think it is an early sign for a future Spike episode they want to do and til is done in the show, comics, or books it is not any form of cannon anyway.

Age difference between Twilight and Spike is 5 - 6 years.
Medieval style society with modern highlights. Age of adult between 16 and 18.
Equestrian society includes Elementary, and higher schooling levels including university or college.
given the medieval feel of equestrian society apprenticeships are probably common.
Elementary level is the only mandatory schooling level.
Twilight is still in schooling under Celestia, probably putting Twilight in the University / College Level.
Twilight and the other mane six are young adults probably ranging between 16 and 20 years old.
assuming Twilight, Rarity, and Applejack to be the oldest in the group. around 19 - 20 years old.
assuming Rainbow and Fluttershy, to be middle range. 17 - 18 years old.
Assuming Pinkie pie to still be in the middle of her Apprenticeship to the cakes. 16 years old.

Given 5 year age difference between Spike and Twilight, Spike is 14 - 15 years old.
a 14 year old boy developing a crush with a 19 year old girl is fairly common and healthy.
Given Medieval style society, perfectly fine for Spike to have a relationship with Rarity.

Many people assume Equestria is at the level of medieval Europe but their is no proof of that. In fact all we have to base that idea on is the architecture of Ponyville and Canterlot and there are many Europe towns and villages that still have that architecture today, yet we seen other cities with modern architecture and mechanics. Then there the age thing, at the very begin we were told that the mane 6 are young adults(and sense this is an USA show that means 18 at the youngest) with at most a year and a half in age different in between them, plus while I don't count tweets as cannon all the writers keep saying that Spike is no longer a kid as the end of season 5. What this means they haven't said yet but it does come across that they are planning something with Spike age. There also four other things to keep in mind: 1) In "Where The Apples Lies" we saw a young Applejack around 15 years old but Apple Bloom who at most 10 wasn't born yet. 2) Granny Smith is at her youngest 400 years old, meaning ponies could age more like elves from most rpgs then humans(note it is cannon that they don't age like real ponies). 3) We seen Spike "age" into an "adult" and then age back into a "baby" just by collecting random junk yet we seen "teenage" dragons, this could mean that "baby","teenage", and "adult" aren't a stage of physical development but may be stages more like pokemon and digimon. 4) Spike is a different specie then the ponies so it is possible he may development or age at a slower rate then them.

I used medieval to describe their culture, not their level of industry.
industry wise equestria is somewhere between the industrial revolution
and the late victorian age,  there is no internal combustion engine
machines are powered on either steam or magic
there are no cars, only wagons and carriages.
the vehicle Flim and Flam made was more like an off track locomotive.
they have sailing ships, balloons, Dirigibles, and steam trains
MLP is a Steam punk, Magical fantasy.
and the most modern architecture Manehatten is comparable
to late Victorian New York city.

1. in where the apple lies, it didn't show Applebloom or the Parents
which is weird, applejack and mac were fighting over who
was going to run the farm, which would hint at the parents being dead
but if they were already dead, applejack should have been
playing mother to applebloom. so either applejack's parents at the time
were frequently out of town, on adventures or business at the time,
or they were dead, and perhaps applebloom was with a relative,
who was capable of breastfeeding an newly orphaned filly.
the episode is an anomaly, especially as applejack and bigmac
never once mention applebloom or their parents during the entire story.

2. how old the elders of the apple clan can be has no bearing
on what age is considered the beginning of adult hood in equestria
of which there could be two, the first being the age a teenager
could move out and start their apprenticeship.
the second when they're considered old enough to marry
or become engaged in politics or the military.
As for Granny Smith helping found ponyville, either granny is really old
or ponyville isn't as old as twilight has claimed.

3. an estimate on spikes chonological age has no bearing to his physical dragon age
or to his mental age, there is a difference
chronologically spike is 14 or 15 years old at the beginning of season 1
greed causes a dragon to magically age, most of the time we see spike as a baby dragon
mentally spike seems to fluctuate between 8 to 15 years, depending on his mood,
and which characters he's interacting with.
Spike enjoys acting as a child, but he has responsibilities,
that require him to act older on frequent occasions.
he'll also act older, to impress others, such as rarity.

not to mention that Equestria doesn't use a human calender
1. the planet isn't in orbit around a star
2. the sun and moon are moved with magic
3. good evidence the Apple family reunion happens during the summer sun celebration
once every two years. but Granny smith says in Apple family reunion it's been a "Hundred Moons" S01E01 to S03E08
for humans 1 moon means a month or lunar month. 100 moons would be between 7.69 and 8.3 years
this is obviously incorrect as applebloom would have been a teenager if not an adult by season 3.
a better theory is that an equestrian year has 50 weeks, and an equestrian lunar cycle is equal to a week
where Monday or medievally "Moon" day is the day of the new moon, where you can see the moon in the sky at noon
meaning in equestria every thursday night is a full moon.
or vice vera, sunday night or monday morning is a full moon, and thursday is a new moon
an equestrian "Moon" equals one week of time,
meaning in equestria girls when Celestia says the mirror has a 30 moon cycle
it wasn't 2.3 to 2.5 years, but 7.5 months in equestria
and given sunset shimmer had spent 3 previous years taking the canterlot high crown
and was working on her 4th year meaning it's an 8-12 highschool.
with the EQ Girls currently in grade 11 starting grade 12 after the summer
4 years in EQG equals 14 to 16 years Spike has lived in equestria
meaning a temporal shear ratio of 1:3.5 to 1:4 between the two worlds
meaning for each 7.5 months that pass in Equestria, only 1.75 to 2.5 months actually passed for Sunset Shimmer
Sunset ran away during her mid to late teens, and as a result fit in perfectly at the highschool.
for a mare in her 30's she doesn't look a day over 20.

1) Their industrial and culture is all over the place when compare to humans, which make sense being that they are not humanoid at all and are magical. We have seen tech and culture aspect more advanced late Victorian age.
2) Apple Bloom is the same age of Diamond Tiara maybe a little younger by the way they acted and we saw her parents had not had her yet. Even assuming that Spoil was in the early pregnancy this is a good indicator that Apple Bloom wasn't born yet. The Apple parents made not had the talents to run the farm and had different jobs like Apple Bloom will no doubt have.
3) My point is that if Granny Smith is that old then ponies may age at a slower physical rate then humans, meaning humans chronological would mean nothing to a pony.
4) We do not know Spike physical or chronologically age that is the point of this. Mental age doesn't is difficult to talk about in the real world because of different cultures standers on maturity and because of people own personalities.

1. magic based arcade games don't count as they clearly don't have any electronic television, radio, or telephone
at best they have electric lighting, but still frequently use candles and lamps

2. either way the parents not even living on the farm is very suspicious.
though they could have been visiting the Orange side of the family,
but then why not bring the kids to see Grandma and Grandpa Orange?

3. just because something lives for a long time doesn't mean that their childhood development is stunted
on my dad's side my family averages 60 to 70 years
on my mother's side I've had great grandparents that have lived well into their 90's
and in china there are entire communities that live well past 100 years
there is no correlation between childhood development and how long someone lives
if what you say was the truth,
then that would mean my cousins on my dad's side would be adults at the age of 15
and my cousins on my mother's side wouldn't reach adulthood till they were 25
and the chinese wouldn't finish growing till they were in their 30's

4. chronological age is from the time spike was hatched, twilight was taking a school exam,
meaning twilight must have been 5 or 6, old enough for kindergarten or grade 1
simple math tells you Spike and twilight as a result have an age gap of 5 or 6 years.
how do you not know what chronological means?

1) We seen other examples like everything with DJ-Pon3
2)There are many good reasons why her parents wouldn't be home that day, either way til that season 7 flash back episode airs we really can't say much about them.
3) I don't believe you are understanding what I'm saying so I will try again. They live for centuries meaning they may develop at a slower rated then humans, in the real world shorter lived species develop faster then longer lived species.
4)I do know what chronological age means and what you are saying isn't Spike chronological age it the age gap between him and Twilight. And sense we don't know Twilight chronological age that doesn't help much, at best we can that season 1 ep 1 she was in some from of college and we know she was a young adult at the time because that is the one thing everyone who work the show keep saying about their ages. Of course it is reasonable to assume that Twilight may have skip a few grades, and giving that by the end of season 5(the time the writers starting to say that Spike was no longer kid) two cannon years at most has past. Yes that is the cannon time to that point and yes it possible that by saying Spike no longer a kid they mean he a teenager now. So this only make the age question harder to answer, but can least agree to leave Equestria Girls out of this because that world clearly is on a different time phase they Equestria except when the portals are ready to open and that the humans are not in the same age groups as their pony counter parts. Look at cmc age gap to their big sisters for proof of this, the ponies have enough of a gap that it is possible to mistake their sisters for their mothers. Yet the humans go to same school as their big sisters.
