Yep, that was the reaction that Star was looking for. After giving another flash of her pearly white fangs, she went back to a normal look. Didn't want to overuse her new weapon after all, now that she knew the mare had a thing for fangs. Got to use that kind of information strategically.
She listened quietly as she talked about her fears of Changelings and their abilities, a fear of course mixed with fascination. Star could understand that. As cool as it sounded that there was a creature who could look like anypony - cause let's face it, shapeshifting sounded like an awesome power - when you really thought about "anypony" and included friends and family it could get pretty scary.
"Of course I'd protect you. Protecting ponies is why I joined the guard, and that goes double when they're a cutie like you," she replied, gently putting a wing over her companion and geeeeently leaned into you,"There, hope that makes you feel better," she said, giving a slight laugh.
"But seriously, when you put it like that, it does sound kind of creepy. But, on the other hoof, if they're not causing a disturbance or hurting somepony, I guess I find it a little hard to care that much if they're just hanging out. I mean, I guess even a Changeling can like going to the opera or whatever. It's really the threat of replacing someone you know and care about in order to take advantage of you, I think, that is really what worries ponies."

Chrysalis smiled as the mare spoke. She was definitely streetwise. Most ponies would just agree that Changelings living about means trouble. This mare knew it was more than just that. Had she had someone replaced? No, couldn't be... She was too calm about the subject of changelings. Anyone who had had someone replaced by a Changeling would be much more... opinionated of them.
"So, if Changelings stripped their disguises and walked the streets, chitin and wings shimmering in the sun, you think ponies would not be worried?" She smirked, 'Penumbra' was now, obviously, playing games with the mare as she sipped her drink. She did, however, seem to shift when the wing was placed around her, seeming to get into a seating position that would allow the wing to sit more comfortably. She was definitly okay with this kind of attention.

"Oh of course they'd be worried. I mean, we had one hive attack the capital. Kind of hard to get over that, lessons about friendship and harmony and all that aside," Star Breaker replied, shrugging a little bit,"But, hey, that's just kind of how things work. It'd take some serious time and outreach I think to get to a level of 'comfortable' living between ponies and Changelings. Figuring out how to do that it is kind of above my pay-grade though."
As Penumbra moved so did Star Breaker till she had gently wrapped her wing around her and the two were in a comfortable "opera watching" level of snuggling. Of course if the opera had started Breaker wasn't aware. She hadn't planned on paying that much attention to it anyway. Would much prefer a Sapphire Shores or the artist formerly known as Countess Coloratura aka just Coloratura now. She had gotten a lot better after dropping all that "glitz & glam" stuff.
"But anyway, what do you like to do when you're not researching Changelings? Like, got any favorite clubs or something you like to go to?"

Penumbra nodded as the bat spoke. Outreach, time and effort... that could make it possible for Changelings to live alongside Pon.... What was Chrysalis thinking? That's not her goal. Living alongside her food was not on her agenda! She shifted slightly, trying to shake the thoughts from her mind. She had realized she fully blocked out the bulk of her hivemind, at least temporarily, only allowing in her few elite guards, so the noise would slow down from the thoughts she was having.
She looked back to Star Breaker as she asked a question. 'When you're not researching changelings' was all she heard of that first question. Penumbra cleared her throat and smiled. "I'm just like any average egghead. I read about various things, usually pertaining to my studies, or I do some things I've left undone." She said with a small nod. "As for the second question, I don't think I've been to any of the clubs around Canterlot... Though I have done some outreach work on a farm once. Down in Dodge Junction. That was pretty fun to work like the working class."

Wooow...she sounded kind of boring when she put it like that. Not that Star Breaker had issues with reading or anything but, well, at some point you had to put the books down. Okay, she apparently did put them down once...to go work at a farm. Again, not that anything's wrong with a farm, but it wasn't exactly a place Star Breaker imagined one would go to have 'fun'.
"Hmmm, then if this night works out I think I'm gonna have to take you out to one of the clubs. Actually, I'd offer to ditch the opera to go to one, but our dresses are probably a little too fancy for that. Besides, we had a free dinner or something after this right? I'd hate to miss that," she said, laughing a little.
