    FAQ: Dash's Secret

    Hi, everypony! In response to all of the wonderful feedback and support I’ve been getting about Dash’s Secret, I thought I would write a few words answering some of the most commonly asked questions about the story.

    Where did you get the idea for this story? Why Rainbow Dash in particular?

    Because she has a squeaky voice that makes her sound like a boy.

    Seriously, that’s it. When I listen to Rainbow Dash’s voice, I don’t hear a teenage girl or a young woman, I hear a nine-year-old boy. This is interesting, and a sign of Ashleigh Ball’s great vocal range, since I find Applejack (her other character) to have the most identifiably feminine voice among the mane cast, even more than Rarity or Fluttershy. Eventually I started thinking about what might be behind Rainbow’s voice, and the rest all sort of followed on from there.

    Wait, I’m confused. What exactly is Rainbow Dash’s deal?

    I’m not really in a position to teach Gender Identity 101 here. If anyone has a useful website they’d like to recommend, I’ll put a link to it here.

    In short, and this is very much oversimplifying how things work for humans in the real world, Rainbow Dash is a transmare. That means that she is a mare in all emotional and psychological senses, and identifies as one socially, but has a Y chromosome, and the anatomy more commonly associated with stallions. This is a problem, because it means other ponies are inclined to treat her as a stallion because of how she looks.

    I should note that Rainbow Dash being a lesbian is more or less independent of her gender identity. I really only made that decision because I wanted her to have been in a relationship with Gilda. That will be coming up next chapter, by the way.

    So is Rainbow Dash meant to be the only transmare in Equestria?

    I wouldn’t think so, no. It’s true that none of Rainbow Dash’s friends have ever heard of a pony with gender identity issues. In fact, neither has she, which is a big part of her problem – she doesn’t have the ability to look at her own situation and say, “Oh, hey, turns out I’m trans, I guess that explains everything.” The reasons for this are twofold.

    Firstly, Equestria lacks the mass media that we take for granted. It doesn’t seem to have radio, let alone television or the Internet. All it has is newspapers and magazines. In that regime, it’s hard for any small group of ponies to make their existence known to each other, especially when they really don’t want to make themselves known to the general public.

    Secondly, I believe that Equestria has a less strongly gendered culture than most Earth cultures. Ponies usually don’t wear clothes, and there seems to be very little connection between gender and profession. Observe how none of the mane cast have ever been told that their careers and behaviours are inappropriate for a mare. One transmare who doesn’t experience body dysphoria might live her whole life without feeling the need to do anything about the fact that ponies think of her as a stallion. Another might find that it’s a big problem, of course. In general, though, I suspect that the fraction of ponies actually attempting a social transition is lower than it is in the real world.

    The real reason, of course, is that that’s the story I want to tell. I wanted most of the problems she encounters with other ponies to be based in ignorance rather than actual prejudice, and I wanted her to need to discover her identity by herself – with the help of her friends, of course.

    How does Rainbow Dash disguise her body? Surely other ponies would notice.

    Beats me.

    The thing is, the ponies don’t have visible genitalia on the show, what with it being a kids’ show and all. Because of that, the question of how Rainbow Dash disguises her genitals isn’t really one I can answer. For all we know, ponies don’t actually have visible genitals most of the time. Maybe they actually wear some kind of underwear. Maybe their coats are thicker in that area, so that it’s not so obvious. Maybe, as one commenter has suggested, they actually have magical retracting genitals that disappear when not in use. We just don’t know. Without knowing what the ponies actually look like in-universe, I can’t say what they would do in-universe to change their appearances.

    That being said, I do have some ideas. Obviously, when “Sonic” first established herself as “Firefly”, she was wearing dresses that Fluttershy made for her. After that, Fluttershy used her freaky knowledge of sewing to make something out of the same material that aerial teams like the Wonderbolts use for their flight suits, in a colour matching her coat. The idea is that this could sit over her croup and crotch in such a way that it removed the outline of her genitals. I think makeup is enough to soften the lines in her face, and there is actually a fair bit of variance in the facial structures of mares and stallions on the show anyway.

    Ultimately, I don’t know how a pony would pass herself off as a different sex. I believe, however, that a sufficiently ingenious and motivated pony would find a way, just as humans have.

    Is Twilight going to be able to find a spell to give Rainbow the right body?

    Spoilers! But suffice it to say that such a spell will be the focus of the upcoming chapters set in the present.

    So, are you…

    Nope. As far as I can tell, I’ve never experienced any gender dysphoria or other problems with my identity as a man. I didn’t really know what I was doing when I started writing this story. That said, both of my girlfriends do identify as genderqueer, and they have been exceptionally helpful in guiding me through the issues involved in writing such a story. I’ve also learned quite a lot in the process of doing research for the story and in talking to my readers, and I’m very grateful for that opportunity.

    Why so long between updates?

    Believe me, I would love to update more often! I’m treating Dash’s Secret as my most significant story, so I don’t want to rush it. It’s also not really flowing as easily as some of my other stories have, probably because I have some very firm ideas of where I want it to go, but I’m not so sure of how to get there. I also have several other fanfics in the works, and, of course, my responsibilities to my job and my girlfriends take up most of the time I’d like to use for writing. I will keep trying, though, and will get the next chapter out as soon as I am able.

    Thank you so much for writing this! It means so much to me! How can I ever repay you?

    You just did.

    I’ve had so many messages thanking me for writing this story, and I treasure every one of them. I never thought that I could make a difference to so many people, for doing something that I enjoy doing anyway. Just knowing that my work has been helpful is something that really helps me keep working on it. If you really enjoyed it, tell your friends about it!

    Another thing I’ve learned while writing this story is that there simply isn’t enough transgender-related fanfic out there, for this or any other fandom. There are a few others in the LGBT Group here on FimFiction, which is great. It would be great to see more, though, so if you feel up to it, give it a try!

    Once more, thank you to all of my loyal readers. I’ve had a great time writing this, and am looking forward to writing and publishing the next chapter!

    All There Is To Know About Dash's Secret

    Hey everypony! I've got a bit of a conundrum, and I was hoping my readers could offer me some advice.

    So, as you know, I've just uploaded the third chapter of "Dash's Secret", bringing the story so far to a total of about 20,000 words.

    (If you're reading this but haven't yet read "Dash's Secret", then be warned that there are spoilers en route.)

    When I first wrote "Dash's Secret", it was intended as a one-shot story, a single chapter of about 10k words. The big reveal happens 4k words into the story, so there's a fair portion of the story which can leave the reader trying to figure out just what Dash's secret actually is. That's a decent ratio for stories where mystery is part of the attraction.

    Now, however, the "reveal" happens 4k words into a 20k word story. My current estimate is that the final story will be closer to 40k words when it's finished. At that point, the "mystery" part of the story would be a mere 10% of the entire content. At that point, it's not really a mystery, it's just a social exploration work. Thus, is there any point keeping the central premise of the story as a spoiler?

    Some of you may be familiar with the trope All There Is To Know About The Crying Game. It means that the "plot twist" or "surprising reveal" of a story is the main thing that would induce a reader to read the story in the first place, which makes it hard to get new people to read it without saying what it's about. I've noticed that the summary of "Dash's Secret" is a bit bland right now - there's nothing which distinguishes it from the dozens of other "pony X has a mysterious secret" stories out there. On the other hand, I've heard of a lot of people recommending it as one of the few transgender pony fics out there. (There need to be more, by the way, in this and every other fandom, I just don't understand why there aren't.) I can't help but feel that keeping the plot secret is doing more harm than good.

    So, I'm thinking that I might just make the plot more explicit in the summary, rather than keeping it as a mystery. Thoughts, anypony?

    Apple Bloom's story continues!

    At least, one of them does. I've been wanting to begin the sequels to "Apple Bloom's Family" for ages now - in fact, since before I finished the original story. I've been overwhelmed by the lovely feedback I've received for the story so far, and I'm very sorry to have kept my readers waiting so long for the continuation.

    As a reminder - "The Crusaders Take Manehattan" is one sequel to "Apple Bloom's Family", following Sweetie Belle's story of Apple Bloom's parents being Applejack and Orange Counter. I will be writing a second story following Scootaloo's version of events, which I will probably begin after "The Crusaders Take Manehattan" is finished, though possibly sooner.

    I hope you all find this continuation satisfying, and that you will enjoy Apple Bloom's journey towards finding her place in the world! Thank you again for reading my work! It means a great deal to me.

Rarity has a new coltfriend, and she couldn't be happier, but she isn't sure what to do if their next date proves more... intimate than the last. She seeks guidance from all of her friends, but the best advice comes from a most unexpected source.

Oh man, even skimming through some of this hurts. :1 ponies+sexual relationships= Death of me. Its interesting sure enough, no real grammatical error and very well done. I'm just a bit tad embarrassed myself reading this, its like when someone humiliates themselves so bad you feel it too. In this case it would be rarity. Man I'm gonna have to read this aren't I? :twilightblush:

#2 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

that....was....well i expected Pinkie to be the type to throw orgy's, other than that this was great

#3 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

At first i was all :rainbowlaugh:

Then I was all :unsuresweetie: at the end bit. Great fic. Well written and played with the topic quite nicely.

#4 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

"Rainbow Dash must still be tied up somewhere".

:raritycry:

#5 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

... Whut.

Ok this made me laugh, but... :unsuresweetie: I think I like this.

#6 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

Oh god, this was freakin amazing. :rainbowlaugh:  The Applejack and Fluttershy scenes were absolutely golden, and I love the "must be tied up somewhere" line you dropped. You really built up to the inevitable Pinkie scenes as well, and they were soooo worth it. :pinkiehappy: Rarity dialogue was top-notch as well. :raritywink:

#7 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

Well done, and a great way to shine a spotlight on the many flavors of inherent absurdity in intercourse, regardless of species. Each character's level of experience is, in my opinion, quite believable. Yes, even Fluttershy's.:flutterrage:

#8 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

I counted at least five laughs out loud, two guffaws, and one jaw-drop reading this (I believe it was when Pinkie said she'd asked Princess Celestia about that one trick...). I usually see Rarity written as being quite experienced, but you certainly made it believable the other way. The unexpected transition into seriousness was icing on the cake, in my opinion. The story would have been great as just a whole bunch of funny stuff, but with that little dash of the serious, it jumped to being downright awesome. What a heel, that stallion.:facehoof:

Also: "Opalescence mewed disinterestedly and rolled over in her basket." Yep, that's a cat. :pinkiehappy:

#9 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

lol

#10 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

That was freaking hilarious! Well written, sweet and sad, and a little sexy without being clop fic...   Well done!

#11 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

Oh wow XD I loved this. Well, other than the S&M Fluttershy bit. Otherwise though, it was great! =p

#12 · 163w, 3d ago · · ·

dafuq

:pinkiegasp:

#13 · 163w, 2d ago · · ·

*WILD APPLAUSE*

I'm surprised -- you wrote good advice AND you kept it in Pinkie's tone of voice! :pinkiehappy:

And I agree with Pinkie.  Even if there's no, uhmmm, reaction down below, there's still lots and lots of fun things that can be done!

#14 · 163w, 1d ago · · ·

>>9980

Hahaha I noticed that as well, probably the funniest part of the whole dang story.

Oh and BTW, well played HopeFox, well played. Funny story, and not ridiculous as far as storyline goes.

#15 · 163w, 17h ago · · ·

Agreed with pretty much everypony here!  I like it, and Pinkie's got some surprisingly sage advice there.

Though I have to say, you got me on the 'punchline.'  I'd been sure that it would turn out that Topaz was seriously Not Interested in sleeping with Rarity, not that he'd turn out to be a complete jerk.  Well played, sirrah!

#16 · 162w, 3d ago · · ·

:derpyderp2: HUh?  hehehe tied up :twilightsheepish: clever

#17 · 160w, 3d ago · · ·

HAHA! you are a comdey wizard :rainbowlaugh:

#18 · 159w, 2h ago · 2 · ·

Pinkie as the most experienced pony of the Mane 6.  I admit, I didn't see that coming.

Also, I cracked up at this line: "Rainbow Dash must still be tied up somewhere,"

Great story.  

#19 · 153w, 6d ago · · ·

Well, that was extremely hilarious.

Fluttershy's last line had me in stitches :pinkiehappy:

#20 · 149w, 3d ago · · ·

Ok this is me over the story: :twilightblush::twilightblush::facehoof::twilightblush::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::twilightblush::ajsmug::twilightblush::rainbowwild::rainbowlaugh:

#21 · 148w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

I love this story. I wish I had my very own Auntie Pinkie Pie to feed me ice cream, and tell me that my mean exes were all jerks and it's not my fault, and give me great advice about love and sex.

All of the characters' voices were quite good and very in character. I also really enjoyed the Pinkie and Rarity friendship dynamic you set up, and how it was a perfect blend of funny and sweet. I also can totally buy Pinkie as being both bisexual and polyamorous--the girl's got a lot of love and smiles to share with the world, after all.

I think I chuckled the most at the last line of the story. My Beloved Spouse (to whom I read this out loud) laughed the most at "Now, my little pony ... you're going to love me."

Thanks for writing this and sharing!

#22 · 143w, 5d ago · · ·

I just loved this fan-fiction. What made you choose this topic for your special fan fiction?I WANT TO KNOW!:flutterrage: Please you should make an alternate ending for this story and I'm looking forward to reading more of your stories:raritywink:

#23 · 139w, 9h ago · · ·

Very good story i could picture alot of the environments well with your descriptions.:pinkiehappy:

the only thing i didn't like is well personal i don't like Fluttershy being a lesbian but i guess it fit with the story.:fluttershbad:

#24 · 138w, 3h ago · · ·

Pfhhheeeheehee.  This works so well.  It even had a (varying degrees of) reasonable ending and all.  You are very good at this.

Kudos to you! :twilightsmile:

#25 · 137w, 2d ago · 2 · ·

:yay: You're going to love me.

:raritywink: Rainbow Dash must still be TIED UP somewhere.

:rainbowlaugh: Oh God! Oh God! Bwahahahaha!!!

#26 · 137w, 19h ago · 1 · ·

At first, I was like :unsuresweetie:

But then, I was like :rainbowlaugh:

Then at the end I was like :yay:

And that was how Equestria was made.

Heh...tied up...

#27 · 131w, 2h ago · 1 · ·

Awesome one-shot loved the Rainbow/Fluttershy part . Glad it all worked out at the end.:rainbowlaugh:

#28 · 129w, 4d ago · · ·

Haha. I laughed so hard, people around me wanted to know what I was reading. Great job. Fav'd.

#29 · 129w, 4d ago · · ·

Fucking brilliant :rainbowwild:

#30 · 128w, 6h ago · · ·

I had to actually bite down on my hand to stop myself from choking from laughter. Exceptional. Absolutely exceptional.:pinkiehappy:

#31 · 127w, 5d ago · · ·

Ah, I've always loved this one. Pinkie's dialogue is spot on, I can really imagine her saying all this stuff. Honestly, if the show was actually made for the people who watch it (bronies), I could see this as an episode. Bravo, sir. Bravo.

#32 · 126w, 3d ago · · ·

This was so freaking random!

But funny at the same time!

#33 · 123w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

:rainbowlaugh: I nearly died reading this. Twice- once at the image of Big Macintosh as prospective-girlfriend's-protective-big-brother (I would get out of there so fast I'd break the sound barrier!), and then again at "You're worried that he's going to want to stick it in you and you won't know what to do!" (even though I totally knew Pinkie Pie was going to be three bus routes, a long walk and a taxi from virginty. Party hard, ponies.)

"All the ponies in this town are virgins!" was pretty hazardous, too.

Rainbow Dash tied up with Mistress Fluttershy was... well, frankly, adorable. :twilightsmile:

Overall: Continue doing what you're doing. It works.

#34 · 121w, 1d ago · · ·

This would mesh perfectly with canon if not for one tiny thing: Pinkie having the Element of Laughter necklace in her room.

#35 · 120w, 5d ago · · ·

I tend to read fics late at night when my folks are asleep. When I came across the line "Now, my little pony... you're going to love me.", I failed to stifle my laughter, and... well... they weren't asleep much longer.

Fantastic piece here, and perhaps the funniest one I've read on this site so far.

:pinkiehappy:

#36 · 120w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

That was very tastefully done. With the exception of Rainbow Dash, (I think she could be asexual) you captured my thoughts of the mane 6's personal lives. Pinkie Pie was the most surprising. I was expecting her to drop some sage advice on abstinence , but you managed to make her a sexual deviant while maintaining her shameless innocence. The story as a whole felt very episode like in it's pacing and had a healthy portion of comedy to offset sensitive topic. Keep up the good work.

#37 · 116w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

>>1018460 A very adult like episode no less. :rainbowwild:

#38 · 115w, 2d ago · · ·

Very well done.  I must say.  A few awkward parts, but overall, really good, feels like it fits in the show perfectly.

#39 · 108w, 1d ago · · ·

This is... Strangely adorable, actually.

#40 · 100w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

Absolutely outstanding. I can't stop laughing, and even better, it was a legitimately good bit of advice, without a critical breach of character required to give it. Brava.

#41 · 93w, 5d ago · 3 · ·

An MLP fic that deals with sex without becoming clop, handles sexuality and kink in a mature and healthy way, and is funny? :rainbowderp::rainbowhuh::yay:

Fantastic. :twilightsmile:

#42 · 92w, 4h ago · · ·

An entertaining story with several important lessons in it. I am glad I read this.

#43 · 88w, 4d ago · · 2 ·

I facepalmed at the Fluttershy/Dash part. Then I facepalmed again at the 'Raimbow Dash must still be tied up somewhere.'

:facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof::facehoof:

So there.

#44 · 85w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

Fluttershy fixed her fellow pegasus with a disapproving stare as she trotted back over to the bed. "What was that, pet?"

The cyan pegasus bowed her head and shrank back from Fluttershy as far as the ropes around her fetlocks would allow her. "I mean, it's up to you, Mistress."

"That's better," purred Fluttershy as she slipped the loop of her riding crop around a front hoof. "Now, my little pony... you're going to love me."

Yay, Dashie as Fluttershy pet is best Dashie :rainbowkiss:

I don't know if it's cute :

or sexy :

or very creepy :

#45 · 85w, 10h ago · 1 · ·

As usual, Pinkie Pie is the queen of giving more information than you probably wanted to know. Fanfiction Pinkie, anyway. No way they could get away with it anywhere near as badly in the show.

#46 · 84w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>2357117 It's the second one, pretty much. I think that picture may actually have been one of my inspirations for that scene. I've been thinking about writing a more serious FlutterDash D/s fic, because I think it might be a good way of reconciling their very different personalities and assertiveness levels if they wanted to have a romantic relationship together. Probably not for a while, though.

>>2391158 Indeed she is! I'm sure that if she ever went on a date in the show, she'd be the kind of person to gush for hours about what her boyfriend was wearing and where they went and what they ate and how cute it was and that time when their hooves first touched and and and :pinkiegasp:. Just listen to the way she talks about Rainbow Dash. :pinkiehappy:

#47 · 84w, 1d ago · · 1 ·

You know, much as I dislike Rarity and I laughed when she was rejected, I felt a little bit bad for her....ok, I'm lying, sue me. But anyway, it is bucked up when the male blames the female, sex should be with someone who you feel good around, and yes it's very, very odd when it's the first time.

I'm glad Spike did not swoon over Rarity like he normally, did that would have made me a bit angry even though it's one-sided love or a crush. You did very, very well the the amount of detail in this and I laughed so hard when Fluttershy become a mitress, love that pairing. Rarity and Pinkie Pie huh? Honestly don't think I ever saw that pairing before.

I very much enjoy your work, Pinkie is awesome and it's great when she is able to get serious sometimes, it's a new change. Every creature is true to who they are, I was dying when Twi had to lie about her love life, even if that is a bit unfair and harsh. Why the buck would Pinkie keep a weapon that could defeat Gods in her toy box:facehoof:

I enjoy your work and i'll be watching you, thank you for giving me a laugh and great story.

#48 · 72w, 3d ago · · ·

Really excellent.  Definitely one of my favorite one-shots in the fandom.  It was a little bit random, but, I mean, It's Pinkie Pie.  :pinkiehappy:

Anyways, very good story.

#49 · 56w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

"That's better," purred Fluttershy as she slipped the loop of her riding crop around a front hoof. "Now, my little pony... you're going to love me."

"All the ponies in this town are virgins!" fretted Rarity to herself as she hurried back into Ponyville. The sun was on its way towards the western horizon, so she only had a few hours left before her date, and after all this running around, she would definitely need a bath first.

Rainbow Dash must still be tied up somewhere, so whom else could she ask?

That. That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is why I have bestowed my fave and like upon this piece. :twilightsmile::rainbowlaugh:

#50 · 48w, 5d ago · · ·

Leave it to Pinkie to know what's what.  And even though this story is roughly 2 years old now, and I'm pretty sure that the author either doesn't visit FIMFiction as much anymore, or just doesn't write for MLP, it does seems like it warrants a sequel.  You've got so much going on, and I can see a potential RariPie happening because of it.

And the pervert in me WANTS STEAMING EXPLICIT DETAILS because he's a sorry virgin still in his mid-20s and still hasn't gotten his private places intimately met to another female, ever.     It's ridiculous that it seems like everyone and their next-door neighbor has already did the horizontal tango and other things, and this one hasn't seem to even gotten a sensual kiss. What is wrong with me:raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry:

"I'm talking to myself about myself. I'm so pathetic....Just disregard everything after the first paragraph I just needed to vent a little."
