Maybe that glance lasted just a little too long, or maybe a certain conversation could be interpreted as innuendo. Whatever it is, sometimes we see only what we want to see, and sometimes our fantasies get the best of us. Rarity is no exception.

what is this I don't even

Sorry, guys. I don't know what to tell you. I wrote this in about forty minutes with no plan whatsoever.

#2 · 136w, 22h ago · 1 · ·

Can't really express anything with words right now, so

#3 · 136w, 22h ago · · ·

It would probably be funnier without the final paragraph. In my opinion, anyway.

#4 · 136w, 22h ago · · ·

The writing is good and the idea is good. I guess, as a whole, it's good. Good job. Especially that last bit :ajsmug:

#5 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

->see fic on list. Think that it looks interesting

->scroll down to comments to see if any good. Notice author     Oo

though admittedly, noticing the author made the ending a little unsurprising, if still totally awesome

I would totally sympathise with Rarity if she wasn't so tempramental. Pick a ship and stick to it :P

Though the fic was a little depressing in that now I know that your 40-minute writing will be better then anything I will ever write ever

#6 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·


I find this very funny, even if I don't like PinkieDash c':

Oh Rarity. xD

#7 · 136w, 21h ago · 1 · ·

Best ending line ever. OF ALL TIME.

#8 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

...Oh no. It's finally happened. Rarity is channeling the FiM fandom - all the pieces fit. :rainbowderp:

Hehe. This is just awesome. Never apologise for this. I'm just disappointed Rarity didn't act out her imaginings with puppets or something.


#9 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

Even though, this was written in forty minutes, it was still good. I like it. :pinkiehappy: Made me laugh at some parts as well. :rainbowlaugh:

#10 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh: BAHAHAHA! So Rarity, I swear, and so the fandom, too. Nice, that was funny :pinkiehappy:

#11 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

For some random 40min piece of art, this was pretty great and funny. Dat ending.

#12 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

What did I just read? :rainbowlaugh: This is so funny and awesome! I have to agree with Rarity on that one, Twilestia would look so cute and adorable! :rainbowkiss:

#13 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

hahahahaha, this was excellent, and a realistic outlook on us shippers. We do tend to see things that aren't there.

Also, I literally burst out laughing at the last line. It was just so simple and to the point.

Nice work!

#14 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

A lot worse has come out of 40 minutes of writing.  This was good! :pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh::pinkiehappy:

#15 · 136w, 21h ago · 1 · ·

>>349659 Why are you apologizing? This is glorious!:yay:

#16 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

One of the best things to happen in 40 minutes.  I wonder ,due to Rarity being right, if her cutie mark will change into a shipping crate with a heart on it.  Also

#17 · 136w, 21h ago · · ·

You: write for forty minutes with no plan.

I: have my entire view of Rarity irrevocably changed.

Curse you, AA. Curse you to Tartarus.

#18 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

That's our Rarity!  :raritywink:

#20 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

AA? Hey AA, come here, I need to tell you something. Closer...closer...OK stop.









A perfect depiction of shipping (or rather, many shippers), written in 40 minutes. Served with a very good helping of RainbowPie, and an even bigger helping of OHMYGODTHISISHILARIOUS. I'm impressed. And in stitches. That is all. That I can think of right now. Because I'm laughing too hard to type any more.

#21 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

I laughed so much I had trouble breathing.

#23 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

Ummm... Nice ending?

#24 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

Why can't all non serious shipping fics end like that?

#25 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

I don't know why i like this, but i like this

#26 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

And then they had sex.

"That smelly smell, the smell that smells... smelly.





#29 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

This was hilarious. Half of it came from the story, and half from the picture

#30 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·


Actually, the story was inspired by the picture. So I think it's safe to say that all of it came from the pic.

#31 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

>>351427  That.  Exactly that.

#32 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

""Remember that banquet in Canterlot when you had the epiphany that I was in love with Princess Celestia?" she asked curtly, blushing slightly. Rarity at least had the presence of mind to look guilty at the reminder. "Not only were you wrong, but you almost caused a massive scandal! Imagine what ponies would've thought--the ruler of Equestria, the benevolent princess of the sun, carrying out an illicit affair with her underage pupil? It would've been unhealthy and illegal!"

"It would've been cute..." Rarity muttered, but cast her eyes downward all the same, looking ashamed. "

Is there...something you'd like to say? Hmm?

#33 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

Hah!  Glorious.  How very... Rarity of Rares.  Well done, especially considering the short timespan in which you wrote it.

#34 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·


No, no, of course not. :scootangel:

#36 · 136w, 20h ago · · ·

Shoulda just left the last paragraph or so off, just to drive the point home.

#37 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

This... was... HILARIOUS!!!

Also, you deserve an M Night for that ending

#38 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Not bad, not bad at all. I was a little shocked to see Fluttershy join in the lecture, but it was still pretty cute. Troll-ending, win. :pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh:

#39 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·



But not really.

#40 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Despite my undying hate for Rainbow Pie I love this fic. Very funny and meta. I am ashamed to admit that I often think exactly like rarity does with my ships. this may be the aforementioned hate I mentioned earlier but the last paragraph could've been cut. Funnier to just have it be Rarity's delusions. But that's just me.

#42 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·


#43 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

You know what I like about you, AA? You know your Shipping. Rainbow Pie is best ship :heart:

#44 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Hehe, a very silly story, I felt I must comment as I actually quite enjoyed the portrayal of Rarity as a 'closeted' matchmaker of sorts..=)

Anyway, good work =p

#45 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Had me laughing up a storm. Loved the ending I guess Rarity was right about something. XD

#46 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

And then they had sex. Best line ever to end a story :rainbowlaugh::rainbowkiss:

#47 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

And then they had sex.

Best ending ever.

#48 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

ololololol that ending was beautiful

#49 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Oh, I love this! I think you've pretty much perfectly encapsulated shippers on the whole. And your Rarity is fantastic! Love the monologue to pieces.

And in only forty minutes? You're better than I'd given you credit for; and believe me when I say that I'd given you a lot of credit.

The feature is well-deserved!

Noticed a few typos:

"Againt" in place of "against".

A "wit" in place of "with".

"A though" in place of "as though".

"We're" in place of "were".

And, unless I'm mistaken, a "face" in place of "place".


I have to agree. Seems a weaker punchline.

#50 · 136w, 19h ago · · ·

Absolutely hilarious! I laughed for every second I was reading this, and I think every "ship" writer in every fandom needs to read this.

There were two typos:

Rarity graciously allowed wit a benevolent smile


hopping in face and sending

Remove face

...if I were cool/smart enough there would be a hopping Rarity picture from Green Isn't Your Color about right here... Thank you for making me extremely happy!

Edit: since most others are mentioning the ending line I'll say; I didn't like that last line, yeah it was funny but everything in the story was funny, but I'm not here for that and I don't appreciate the idea.
