  1. Feel free and comment here if you want Nightmare Rarity as hale back. Greetings
  2. Hello everypony! My name is Secrios, and I would like to present to you my wacky fan series "Blue Spy" (It has ponies in it :D). It is a touching tale of love and loss, as a Blue Spy falls in love with Rarity. So far two episodes have been made, but there will be more. Bellow you can see the two finished episodes now :D!
  3. Another poll, with unis for now. Also, no, I don't support Twilicorn.
  4. I recently got Garry's Mod and have been playing TTT. I soon found out about Ponyville, and being a brony myself wanted to get a piece of that action! However, when I try to join, it says that I am banned, even though I have yet to play once. Name is CALL ME ZEBRA.
  5. What do?
  6. This is a story i am working on so here is chapter one tell me what you think. note i wrote chapter one a few weeks into being a brony. Equestria Dreams While sitting at my computer watching My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. I started to day dream about what it would be like to be a pony on the show. And soon I fell asleep and was dreaming about My Little Pony. All of a sudden I hear the voice of twilight sparkle. She was trying to wake me up it sounded like. And it just kept getting louder and louder. I snapped out of my slumber wide awake. But I kept hearing her voice. Hey were you sleeping while watching us. I was in shock. Twilight Sparkle seemed to be talking to me through the computer. So I replied I guess I dosed off. Wandering if she was going to reply again. Well you seemed like you was having a good dream huh. I stared at her in shock. I was talking to Twilight Sparkle. She then said. Do you want to see a cool trick I just learned. Uhhh sure I reply. I see her horn light up. All of a sudden a vortex opened up behind me and I was sucked into it. Every thing was black. Then I felt a small breeze and heard Twilight again speaking to me. Hey wake up. Wake up. WAKE UP!!!. I came to and I was staring her in the face. I jumped back in shock. Then noticed something else. I looked down And I saw hoofs. Then I looked behind me and saw I had a mane and tail. I passed out. Again I was being woke up by Twilights voice. I come to again. She then said sorry about that. I should have warned you about what I was going to do. Whats going on here I said. Oh well. I kind of brought you into my world and made you into one of us. Wait Wait Wait. You made me into a pony and I am in Equestria. Yep that is right said Twilight. Well this is very interesting. I said. Then I look to my rear and said. Well I don't guess I have a cutie mark do I. No you got to earn that like every other pony. Said Twilight. Then I looked again. Hey im a Pegasus. Sweet I can fly. Yes you can fly but I have Rainbow Dash coming over to show you the ropes in a bit. She said. Oh My GOSH I get to meet Rainbow Dash this is so awesome. I said in excitement. Yep you two are going to get along just fine. Twilight why to you make me into a pony any way. I asked. Well I have been watching you for a while. You seem happiest when you are watching us. You just needed a change in your life and I gave it to you. She said. I could not help my self. I jumped on top of her and gave her a big kiss on the cheek. Thank you so much Twilight. Your welcome, She replied. Hmm were is Rainbow Dash? Its not like her to be late. Said Twilight Sparkle. The we hear a boom and a rainbow shoots out across the skies. Well it looks like she is practicing the sonic rain boom again. No wonder she is late. That has been bugging her all week. Oh look there she is. I see her flying really fast towards us with a rainbow shooting out from behind her. She stops mid flight and lands right in front of me. My mouth dropped and I could not say a word. I was so happy to be standing in front of the coolest pony I have ever laid my eyes upon. So you are the pony in town that I get to teach how to fly huh. Said Rainbow Dash. I uh uh uh am y-y-y-your biggest fan. I said. Well thanks, but i'm not here to talk about how awesome I am. I am here to teach you how to fly. Are you ready to hit the skys. Asked Rainbow Dash. YEAH I AM. Lets do this. I want to be able to fly as fast as you. I said in excitement. Whoa there. That is going to take a lot of time to learn how to do. Lets just teach you the basics and the I will let you go from there. Said Rainbow Dash. Now start flapping those wings. I started flapping and I felt my self start to lift off the ground. This was a feeling I loved. I looked up at a cloud. And with out thinking twice I started flying towards it. Rainbow Dash watched me. And said to Twilight Sparkle. Wow I think we have a natural flier on out hands. I didn't even have to tell her any thing. Twilight gave a Nod to agree. I land on the cloud and I can not help but lay down on the cloud. It was amazing. Just like a really soft bed. It does not take long for Rainbow Dash to come and lay beside of me. Its a good feeling huh. She said. Yeah I said. You should come up to my place and room with me. I have plenty of room. I know you don't want to stay on the ground. I can already tell your place is in the sky. I would love that Rainbow Dash. Are you sure thats ok though. I mean we only just met. I asked. Yeah im sure, she replied in a happy tone. Before we go though. Can you introduce me to the other ponies. I asked. Sure she said. But first, what is your name. I thought for a moment and then said. Oh my name is Windy. I like that name Rainbow Dash said with a smile. With that we was off to meet the others. Soon I found my self coming up on a big apple orchard. My heart grew with excitement, as we landed next to a barn. We waited for awhile, and then I heard Rainbow Dash yell for Apple Jack. Hold on to your hoofs for just a sec. I am on my way. Said Apple Jack. Soon I saw Apple Jack come around the corner of the barn. What do you want Rainbow Dash? She asked. Oh I just wanted you to meet the new pony in town. Said Rainbow Dash. Apple Jack Stared At me for a moment, and said. Well nice to meet you. I'm Apple Jack. I help run this apple orchard run by my family. And we make some of the best apple pies you have ever tasted. So what's your name, She asked I'm Windy, and I am pleased to meet you. I said. Well thats a nice name. Wait. Your a Pegasus pony. Oh this is going to be fun for Rainbow Dash. Said Apple Jack. Well she is not that strong of a flier yet. That will take some time I think. Said Rainbow Dash. I look at Rainbow Dash with a puzzled look. What?? said Rainbow Dash. Do a sonic rain boom and I will take that back. I looked at her and said. Yeah thats not going to happen for a while. Well Apple Jack. I better be taking her to the other ponies houses. Said Rainbow Dash. Thats just dandy. You all have a good day now. Said Apple Jack. We took off again, and headed towards Pinky Pies house. When we landed I knocked on the door. And now one come. Hmm that is odd. Said Rainbow Dash. Lets just go in. Im sure that she is home. Rainbow Dash opened the door. And it was pitch black. Hello Pinky Pie are you home? Pinky Pie? Then with out warning. All the lights come on and every one shouted Surprise!!! I jumped and with in a slight state of shock. Every one was there. Then Pinky Pie burst out into a song. Welcome to Pony Ville It's a magical and wonder full place to stay. Welcome to Pony Ville lets go play play play. Pinky Pie!!! said every one but me who was on the verge of tears. Oh sorry If I scared you. Hehehe. Said Pinky Pie. So Whats your name huh huh huh. Asked Pinky Pie. I'm Windy, its nice to meet you, and all the ponies. I said. Well then alow me to give you a proper welcome to Ponyville. Said Rarity. If you every need any thing darling. Feel free to ask. But we simply must make you a nice dress, and I think I know what to make you. This is going to be so fun. Well that would be very kind of you, I said. I looked over in the corner of the room and saw a pony just hiding. So I decided I would go and introduce myself to her. Hey I'm Windy. I'm the new pony in this town, and thought I would come and introduce my self. I said with a cheerful voice. She looked at me and the innocent voice came out that would melt the heart of any pony. She said, I'm Flutter Shy. Its very nice to meet you. What do you do around here? I asked. Oh I care for all the animals and make sure they are happy and healthy. That is very sweet of you Flutter Shy. I said. I hope we can become very good friends. Umm... Windy I think Twilight Sparkle is wanting you. Said Flutter Shy. Ok its been nice meeting you. Hope we can hang out some time soon. I said. So I went back to see whats Twilight Sparkle wanted. Do you need me Twilight. I asked. I just wanted to talk to you for a few minutes. She said. You look like you are going to be just fine in Ponyville, And that makes me happy to know. I was wondering. Do you have a place to stay yet. Or do you want to stay with me? She asked. Oh yeah. I have a place. Rainbow Dash invited me to come and stay with her at her house in the sky. But thanks for the offer. I said. Well thats good to hear. I thought I would tell you that Princess Celestia is coming to town, and she wants to meet you. If that is ok. She asked. Oh yes that would be fine I said. Wait you said the Princess is coming today!!! said Rarity. Yes she will be here in a few hours said Twilight Sparkle. Oh no no no. We can't let Windy meet her with out anything to wear. That would be disgraceful. I won't allow it. Said Rarity in a stern voice. With that she runs out the door to try to find something for Windy to wear. Sorry about that,said Twilight Sparkle. She gets like that from time to time. But you can't say no. Ok its ok. I understand. I said. I looked around and saw no signs of Apple Jack, and asked. Were is Apple Jack at. I have not seen her since the farm. Oh She should be here soon. She had to make a few stops before coming over. Said Twilight Sparkle. Hey Windy come over here for a sec. Rainbow Dash yelled. So I run over to go see what she wants. I'm going up to Cloudsdell tomorrow it you want to come with me. She asked. Sure that would be fun Rainbow Dash. I would like that. I said. Yeah I want to show you were I learned how to fly, and were the weather is made. Said Rainbow Dash. The you hear Apple Jack come in the door. Sorry I'm late every one. But I had to chase Apple Bloom down so she could come to. With a flash I was right next to Apple Bloom. Aww arn't you the cutest little filly I said. Apple Bloom is my little sister said Apple Jack. As you can see. She is being a little shy right now. Apple Bloom say hi to Windy. Said Apple Jack. She looked down at the ground, and said hi in a shy tone. Don't worry Windy she will warm up to you soon. She was so excited when I told her about you. Said Apple Jack. Well thats ok. I don't expect her to warm up to me that quick. I mean she is just a little filly after all. I said. So I turned back towards Pinky Pie. Who was nose deep in a bowl of punch. I could not help but laugh at her. She was a silly pony after all. Pinky Pie looked up from the punch bowl and saw me. Hmm punch is all ways better when you dive in head first. She said with a laugh. I could not help but laugh at what she said. She has a wild since of humor. Wow I replied. I think this is going to be a good place to stay. More like the best place ever. I would not imagine living any were else. Said Pinky Pie. Ok Ok your right. This is the best place ever to live. I said in Agreement. Now that you agree, would you like some punch. She asked. I looked at her and said. I think I will pass this time. With a smile. Suit your self, she said. Then proceeded to continue dunking her snout in the punch. With that I decided to go talk to Rainbow Dash for a bit. But I didn't make it far. I'm back Windy, Called Rarity. She the produced a wonderful dress. I was memorized by it. I could not speak. Well what do you think of it Windy, asked Rarity. I LOVE IT. I yelled. Well thats wonderful dear. Considering I just through it together in under two hours. Thank goodness for a magical horn. She said. Now lets get this on you before the Princess arrives. It did not take long for her to have me all dolled up and ready to meet the pincess. Every one was in ah over me when they say me. How does it feel, asked Rarity. It feels wonderful. I said in excitement. Twilight Sparkle then came up to me and said. You look wonderfull. The princess with be here in a few minutes. I just for word, and don't be nervous. She will love you. I ope your right. I told Twilight Sparkle. I know she will said Twilight. I was starting to get really nervous. And it showed. The other ponies could see the tears rolling from my eyes. Fluttershy come up too me. It will be ok. Said Fluttershy. Some thing about her voice made me feel a lot better. Thank you Fluttershy. You really know how to cheer a pony up. I said to her with a slight smile. Soon I heard a know at the door. I knew who it was. Twilight Sparkle ran to the door. I watched as she opened the door. Then with the door fully open. I saw Princess Celestia with two guards by her sides. I watched as she gracefully walked though the door. It did not take long for her to spot me. She walked over to towards me. I keeled down in front of her. Raise up, and let me see your face. She looked at me for a moment and said. My my, such a pretty pony must have a pretty name as well. So what is your little one. With a stutter i my voice I said. My name is Windy. Well then Windy. It gives me great honor to welcome you to Ponyville. She said. Oh and Wendy. Let me give you some advice. Don't be so nervous when I am around. I don't bite. With a slight nudge from her snout. I smiled at her and giggled a little at what she just said. I promise to be the best pony I can be princess. And it a pleasure to meet you. I said. Now with all that said. I am proud to make Windy a member of Equestria. Tears started pooring from my eyes. I was so happy. My dream was coming true, right before my eyes. I looked around and I also saw Twilight crying as well. I walked over to Twilight with tears still rolling from my eyes. Why are you crying Twilight I asked. I can tell that your happy and that makes me happy. Said Twilight. Princess Celestia saw me and Twilight crying. She came over to us and gave us both a hug. We both cuddled up to her, and felt her warm embrace. There there little ones, she said. Time to dry those tears and enjoy the party. Pinky Pie decided this would be the perfect time to start some music and start dancing. It did not take long for her to us all laughing. It is just what we needed to make every thing feel complete. Well then it is time for me to go back, said Princess Celestia. We all bowed down as she left the party. After a few hours passed. The ponies were starting to leave. I looked over and saw that Rainbow Dash was over in the corner with Apple Jack. It seemed like they were competing. I then say Apple Bloom looking as though she was going to fall asleep. I could tell it was going to be awhile before they were done. So I went and laid down next to Apple Bloom. Who was just staring at the fireplace. I put my hoof over her and said. Hey there Apple Bloom. You look like you are getting tired. Yeah I am she said. But when Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash start competing. They don't stop for a long time. Said Apple Bloom. Well if you want to, you cansleep here and I will wake you when they are ready to go. I said. Are you sure she asked. Sure Im sure I said. Now you just sleep. You are still a little filly, and you need your sleep. Ok Windy. Thank you so much Windy, you are such a good friend. I slowly watched as she drifted off to sleep. She looked to cute while she was sleeping. Another hour passed until they were done. Apple Jack looked over and saw me laying beside Apple Bloom. Now aint that sweet. Windy I told you she would take up to you. Its not just any one she will fall asleep beside. You are a special pony. I can feel it. I hate to wake her up. But it it time to go home. Don't wake her I said. Just put her on my back, And I will carry her home. I said. I can't let you do that Windy. She is not that light. Said Apple Jack. I don't mind really. I just want to spend a little more time with her before I go. Ok said Apple Jack. I'm not going to argue with you. I let them load Apple Bloom onto my back and I proceeded to walk out the door with her. Trying to to wake her. For I did not want to disturb her peaceful slumber. As we walked, Apple Jack said. You know Windy. I might have you baby sit Apple Bloom every now and then. If you don't mind. I don't mind I said with a smile. I love kids, Well Apple Bloom can be a hand full. I can't get many people to watch her because of that reason. Well you don't have to worry about that with me Apple Jack. I am able to get right down to the same level as kids, and can read them like a book. I said. That makes me very happy to hear Windy. Said Apple Jack. Don't forget, she also has me to help, Said Rainbow Dash. Well Rainbow Dash. I don't mind you helping, Just don't teach her any thing she don't need to know. I know how you are. Said Apple Jack. It looks like I am going to have to watch after two kids, I said with a slight laugh. Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack both started laughing at what I said. Yeah I can be kind of childish some times, Said rainbow dash. After a few minutes went by we arrived at the farm. I took Apple Bloom inside and layed her down on her bed. She looked so sweet and Innocent. I could not help but shed a tear of joy. I gave her a slight kiss on the head and said. Ok Rainbow Dash lets go home before it gets to late. Ok then lets fly. Said Rainbow Dash. Just as I was taking off, Apple Jack said thanks for watching out for Apple Bloom. She needs some one like you to look up too. And you never know you and her might just earn your cutie marks together. I smiled and said. Its no problem Apple Jack If you need me just let me know and I will come. Hey what are you waiting on Windy its time to go, said Rainbow Dash. Have to go Apple Jack bye. And with that I was gone in a flash. We raced to Rainbow Dash's house in the sky. When we finally arrived my jaw dropped. It was beautiful. I was once again speechless. I found my self like that a lot here lately. So what do you think. Said Rainbow Dash. I built it myself. I love it I said. Well lets go inside she said. Upon going inside. Rainbow Dash showed me around and took me to my room. Here we are Windy. This is your room. I hope you like it. I looked around and saw the view from the window. I could see all of Ponyville. This is great Rainbow Dash. Well I am glad you like it. She said. It took me so long to make it. I just finished it last year and was looking for another flier to live with me. I am glad you came around. It was getting boring flying the skys with no competition. We you have it now, I replied. Well Windy. I guess it is time to get to bed. We have a big day ahead of us tomorrow. I watched as Rainbow Dash left the room. I could not believe the events that happened that day. I was excited to know that I had many more adventures to come and could not wait to see what would happen next. I layed down in the bed and soon. I was fast Asleep and in a nice peaceful slumber.
  7. ((A big shout out to DarqTempest for all his helpful story ideas, and also to CinnamonGroove for the ideas for generic problems he's given me! I definitely plan to use them. I'm glad I get to try and write a series. I know commenting doesn't seem to be the thing around her, but I would very much appreciate any critcisms/advice/praise. Please and thank you!)) The town of Ponyville wasn’t exactly the center of excitement. There was plenty to do in town for the average pony, and excitement wasn’t necessarily impossible to find, but the truth is, nothing earth-shattering happens there. Lightning Bright, as the Peacekeeper of the town, learned this fairly quick. Most of his days were spent doing a lazy circle over it about twelve times, spread out throughout the day. The rest of his time was free, and a large part of it was spent visiting the townsfolk. Now that he was their Peacekeeper, he figured he should know who he was protecting. This was his schedule for a week. Somehow, in all his time visiting town, he not once encountered the rest of Rainbow Dash’s friends. Rarity, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie were all strangely absent from his life. That changed when he landed one day, only to be immediately tackled by Pinkie Pie. “Ohmygosh, you’re Rainbow Dash’s stallion, aren’t you?! I’ve never met you before, but I see you circling all the time! You’re all like WHOOSH across the sky, looking over the town and stuff like some super-serious guardian and stuff, and I’ve never even gotten to TALK to you! You need to land more often, because you know me, I’m just a simple earth pony, and I can’t fly, so I can’t come up and have a conversation with you (although I COULD pull out my helicopter), and I’ve always wanted to talk to you, and now I finally get to and stuff, and since you’re the newest person in town, we need to plan for a PARTY!” “Uhm… O… Okay?” As fast as she was there, she was gone, off planning the party she had just decided that needed to happen. Lightning recovered from the tackle he had just received and resumed his walk about town. He saw a fashion boutique, and given what he had heard about Rarity, he figured that was where she would be. However, a sign saying “Fabric Shopping, Away For The Time Being” hung on the door. He was just going to have to meet her some other time. He continued down the walk, but there wasn’t much in town that was interesting. He passed the spa, which he had no interest in, then he walked by the sweet shop. Fluttershy had mentioned that Pinkie worked there, but she was most likely not there, given her newfound planning. The only thing in town that interested him was the Sweet Apple Acres cart, especially when he realized that his stomach was growling fiercely. When he spotted the cart, he realized Fluttershy was there, talking pleasantly with Applejack. Lightning stood for a second, trying to decide how worth it some apples were, then resolved to try and act normal with Fluttershy. He walked up, catching her eye. “Oh… Hey, Lighting…” she said, a smile on her face. “Applejack, this is Lightning, my… Uhm… My friend.” “Ahh, so YOU’RE Lightnin’! I’ve been plannin’ to meetcha, but you’re always flyin’ overhead, so…” Applejack extended a friendly hoof. Lightning accepted the firm hoofshake, looking over Applejack for a second. The orange mare was strong, built for work. Her stance was not necessarily confident, but rather, stable and secure. Her mark was a triplet of apples. “Nice to meet you, Applejack… How’s the business?” He said, avoiding Fluttershy’s gaze and trying to find a topic. “Well, you know… Sweet Apple Acres always does good business! We’re the best source of apples around!” “Yeah, I noticed a definite lack of competition…” Lightning still saw a vaguely sorrowful look from Fluttershy from the corner of his eye, and he started to turn a noticeable red. “Uhm… Lightning… Are you… Uhm… Okay?” Fluttershy asked politely, though her way of speech betrayed preconcieved notions of why he was blushing. “Yeah, I’m fine, just… Hungry! That’s why I came over here, actually. I’d like to buy some apples, please.” “Alrighty, then! Sounds good to me!” Applejack had apparently been oblivious to the awkwardness of the two ponies’ exchange, and proceeded to dish up a couple apples. Lightning paid her the necessary amount of bits. He had barely bitten into one when Pinkie Pie speed-bounced her way over to them, with Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle trailing a bit behind. “There you are, Lightning! And you’re with Fluttershy and Applejack! What AMAZING timing! So, I already planned your party, then I realized that OH MY GOSH, there’s a new place in town, so why not have a party there?! So I threw out all my color-coded crayon drawings of your party and zoomed over to the place, and it’s this totally cool bar-type thing, and I was like *GASP* this is PERFECT! So, now, we’re all going over there to celebrate your new job and home!” “Uhm… Thank… You? Don’t you ever need to take a breath…?” “Nope! I have GREAT lung capacity!” “Okay… So, let’s go, then.” The group started walking through town. Rainbow touched down next to him, walking close to him and giving him a peck. He smiled, but still avoided Fluttershy’s eyes at all costs. Eventually, they came upon a restaurant and bar combination with a bright sign outside advertising The Dark Mare. The interior of the Mare was pretty typical of bars. The seating was closer to the door, with plenty of tables for people to eat at, many of which were already filled with midday customers. The bar was mostly empty; it was only midday after all. However, a stark white mare sat at the bar, a cocktail in her hoof. She had a heavily styled, curly mane, colored of purple. Three diamonds were on her flank, and she sat talking to one of the bartenders with a slight slur. Apparently, she had left her boutique, not for fabric, but to get a head start on the drinking. “Rarity! There you are!” Pinkie Pie shouted happily, running over to her. “Pinkie Pie, how wonderful that you’re here!” Rarity said woozily, swaying ever so gently. “I heard there was a new place in town, and I just HAD to test it out.” She looked over everyone who was there, then her eyes settled on Lightning. She blinked dreamily, then stepped down from her stool and trotted over to him. “And WHO might you be, handsome?” she said with a slur, batting her eyelashes at him with an air of flirtiness. “Uhm… I’m Lightning Bright…” Lightning’s cheeks burned. “Ahh, yes, Rainbow Dash’s boy toy. Well, if you want, I can show you how a REAL lady acts.” she teased, winking awkwardly. “Uhm… What?” Lightning blinked confusedly. “Rarity, you’re already THIS drunk?” Rainbow Dash said, not the least bit concerned about the flirting. “What do you mean ‘already’?” she said, being much less cordial to Dash. “It’s plenty late enough!” “Rarity, it’s only two o’clock…” Twilight said, looking concerned. “Really?!” Rarity looked to the clock behind the bar, squinting through her boozy haze. “Oh my… Well, such is life. Might as well have another drink.” She wrapped herself around Lightning’s leg. “Care to join me, sir?” She batted her eyelashes again, snuggling against him. “Uhm… No thanks.” Rarity detached herself slowly, before stating, with confidence, “Well, when you decide you want a taste of high class, you can ALWAYS come to me.” She sauntered over to the bar, sat down, and asked for another drink. “Uhm… Your friends are a little strange…” Lightning muttered to Fluttershy. “Oh… They are? Well, we could always go somewhere else…” she hinted without subtlety. “Err… No, this is fine… I’m just not used to them, yet… Pinkie Pie is wearing me out, and Rarity is already hitting on me… You and Dash are the only normal ones.” No sooner had he said this that Dash zoomed up to the bar and ordered, with a highly specific description, a “vodka with a shot of cherry syrup, orange juice, lemon drop soda, lime syrup, blue raspberry soda, and grape syrup, all separated into a rainbow pattern, and in a nice, tall glass.” “Okay… You’re the only normal one, apparently,” he corrected himself. The party went into full swing within the hour. Rainbow Dash had already finished three of her signature cocktails and was floating hazily around the room. Pinkie Pie hadn’t partaken in any alcohol, but was pretending to, seeing how much fun everyone who HAD was having. Rarity was snuggled up against Lightning, passed out from all the booze she had downed, leaving him feeling rather uncomfortable. Twilight was slightly buzzed, and it was apparent in her face, as she looked a tad scared. Applejack was drinking quite a lot, in a contest against some large stallion worker from her farm, but she was holding up VERY well, having beaten three other workers before this one. Fluttershy was sitting at the table with Lightning, the only one fully sober, talking with him about his new job, while quite obviously avoiding the subject of his living conditions and his love life. “Well, how’s it been at the cottage, Fluttershy?” asked Lightning, hoping to right his past wrongs of neglecting her opinions and experiences. “Well, it’s been… Quiet. They fixed the walls and all, but… It’s kind of empty…” she said, her eyes glistening slightly. “Yeah… Listen, if you ever need me over there, I’m sure Rainbow Dash would understand…” Lightning suggested. “It’s not that…” she muttered sliding closer to him without his noticing. “I just… It’s not the same without that… Connection…” “I understand that, but…” Lightning wasn’t paying attention, looking down at Rarity, who was snuggling up against him even more, in her sleep. Before he realized it, Fluttershy was next to him. She had a look on her face, a resolved-yet-sensitive look. “Uhm… Fluttershy… Stop, please…” Lightning couldn’t shy away, thanks to Rarity. “Listen… I know you’re too nice of a pony to do anything to hurt Dash… So don’t worry so much…” she blushed. “But I just… I like being close to you.” “Okay…” Fluttershy had barely gotten close until a noise at the end of the bar drew their attention. They had been so caught up in this exchange that they hadn’t realized that a crowd had gathered at the bar, and a pony was impressing everyone with bartending tricks. A red and black pony.
