Slice of Life
Twilight and Rainbow Dash, together? Must be that 'opposites attract' thing. Then again, maybe they have more in common than they're letting on...
An ongoing series of slice-of-life snapshots. RD, I said to keep the Library clop-free, not... oh, forget it!
All chapters originally written as separate entries for flash-fic blog Thirty Minute Pony Stories (TMP). I highly recommend a visit to TMP if you're looking for some of the best 1000-word gems in pony fiction. Many thanks to TMP for inspiring me to write!Chapter Summaries:
Epilogue - The next Daring Do book isn't out yet, so Twilight convinces Rainbow to read a romance novel instead. That never works - does it?
Second - Twilight reads everything she can get her hooves on. Sometimes she finds things she'd rather not know, or in this case, that Dash would rather not know.
Becoming Daring - The latest Daring Do novel isn't quite what Dash expected, and her reaction isn't what a friend of hers expected, either.
Firelight - Not every schedule has to be full and not every list has to be checked off.
Lift, Weight, Thrust, and Drag - Dash's friends can't save her from an anniversary date with Twilight, at which she will show Twilight a secret skill she's kept from everypony. Twilight's definitely not complaining!
The Wait - Agony is knowing the one you love is standing hoof to hoof with danger and knowing there's absolutely nothing you can do to help.
Hoofing It - One day, Twilight will learn that reading Daring Do alone won't get Dash to do everything. That day is not today.
Variations on a Theme - How many combinations of Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash can there be? Plenty!
Reluctantly Yours - There's something Rainbow Dash doesn't want to lose, and Twilight refuses to let it go. Will this be the end of the awesomeness that is Dash?
Closer to Home - Giving up one dream to keep another isn't always a bad trade.
Wings, Wonderbolts, and You - Always read the fine print. And the rest of it, too.
Pinfeathers - Dash was all she ever wanted and all she'll never have. Twilight hasn't lost Rainbow Dash, but someone has.
Daring Do and the Chapel Perilous - Something's wrong with the Daring Do fanfic Dash and Twi are reading, and it's not funny.
Pew! Pew! Pew! - Rainbow Dash finds new and unexpected uses for the Elements of Harmony.
Less of Me - Twilight decides to help Dash's career along, but she might be getting ahead of herself.
The Ink Wasn't Even Dry Yet - Dash and Twi go head to head in a battle for the ages! And oh, the stakes...
Audience - Twilight Sparkle doesn't dance. We hope. Dear heavens, please let her not dance.
The Trip and the Destination - Dash took on one storm too many and Twilight's had enough of it.
A kind chap by the name of munngojerrie graciously offered to do a dramatic reading of Egghead and Featherbrain. It's done, and it's an hour of audiobook shipping goodness your ears will thank you for! Take a listen to part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE and part 3 HERE.
