When Applejack goes with Rainbow Dash on a trip to Fillydelphia, she learns that life doesn't always go according to plan... and that can lead to something better. Written because I wanted to do my take on a shipfic, minus what always annoyed me.
So glad to see this story here on FIM Fiction! I reviewed it on FF.Net and I still think that you are one of the best writers I've ever seen. I love your funny, ironic style of narration and the characters are just SUPERB. The story is awesome and very real and well...everything is just PERFECT!! There are no other words.
Absolutely love this one! Good to see it on FiM Fiction!
Damn that's a good story, especially the terrible Madden commentary and the entire bit with Dash at the end. DO AN EPILOGUE!
Oh hey, this story! This is one of my faves from the fandom, and certainly one of the few ships I can agree with.
Definitely gotta fave this. Thanks for bringing it here!
Right when the story mentioned "Applecon" I suddenly realized I've read this before. I can't remember where I read it, or when, but the events of the story are still fresh in my mind. Welp, you get my star and thumb. Great ship y' got here.
A hat tip to you, great work. Perfect Applejack and Rainbow Dash.
I'm a huge soarJack fan and this was great.
There is a sequel. It's not on fimfiction but it can be found on EqD.
Heallo (●°u°●) 」
Nice, I usually don't like this shipping but I really liked this story
Now post the sequel.
>>491629491629 Unless someone can tell me how to post these things without having to go through and add all the formatting by hand, like I had to do with this one, I'll be holding off on it until I have more time.
You could get a pre-reader to do it for you. It's not like it would be that difficult to read through the story and add in the formatting.
Glad to see this on FIMFiction, too! It's a really nice, funny story and the AJ-Soarin romance is both sweet and believable.
Holy fuck that was adorable! It's totally well-written! Like massive uber-swag writing style. I'm mad impressed yo!
Still one of the best shipping stories ever.
What you have here is possibly the best fanfic I have ever read, and most definitely the greatest fim romance fic. I agree with the author in that this is certainly not a shipfic in the generally understood sense of the word. Good show, and Three Hearty Cheers!
I just reread this because it's the best shipfic (get out of De Nile) and I remember enjoying it a lot. But now I pick up on a lot of one-liners I missed laughed all over again! Really, the tone of this fic is just like the show, the rythmn, the conflicts, the everything.
Fourty Five Minutes to read this. Not a minute wasted.
This is awesome :)
Awesome to see this here! One of my favorite AJ stories.
Loved it. And clever Doctor Who reference towards the end.
great story! totally loved it! I did like to see what would happen to soaring though.
keep up the awesome work!
always sunny... good memories ^_^
Yes! This is on Fimfiction! Probably one of my favorite shipping fics, a real feel good one, ya know?
This was one of the first (Not the first, but this was probably within the first 50, or maybe even fewer.) fanfics I've read, one of the first shipfics I've read (Which I am kind of picky about.), one of the oldest, and one of the few on Fanfiction.net... And wow. To this day, it remains as one of my favorite stories. (As well as its sequel, which for being in a completely different genre, did extremely well in my opinion.) I posted a review of it more than a year ago on Fanfiction.net, so I won't reiterate anything really, except that I loved it.
Why has this gone so unnoticed? This is one of the best IMO, and aside from the EQD attention from a year ago, nothing about it has come up. I've seen some comments on one story about how they had never thought of Soarin'Jack (I suppose you could call it that.), and I was just thinking that they needed to read this.
Not only this, but your other work is amazing. If anyone has not read Semper Fidelis, do so. If you have, go to BobCat's Fanfiction.net page and read his other stuff. It's all good.
I think you made me a fan of Applejack/Soarin' pairing, because this story is so sweet and credible
This is a really great story and really great ship, there should be more Applejack/Soarin' stories. Five moustaches out of five.
Man, that was just too cute. I can't even handle it.
Wasn't expecting Soarin AJ, but gave it a shot anyways and I sure am glad that I did.
I loved your writing, the pacing, humor, dialogue... everything. This is definitely one of my favorite fics ever now. The way you built up their relationship was just so well done. There's too much for me to praise here. Wasn't a thing I would have liked to see changed.
It's extremely rare for me to come across a shipfic that I enjoy immensely, so allow me to tip my hat to you, sir. Besides the occasional grammar goofup and AJ's inconsistent accent phonetics, I don't have anything to complain about. Everything went swimmingly: the plot, every scene, character interaction... glorious.
Soarin shook his head. "It's not a problem at all! My plans are shot, your plans are shot, so why not be shot together?" He paused. "That came out wrong. But my point stands."
Best. Pickup. Line. Ever.
Between Work, Family drama, and sleep, it took me three days to read this one-shot. But it was three days of WORTH IT!
I loved this story, I am so putting this in my favs. Great Work! Loved every mint of it!
This is really well written. I had no idea what it was about when I started reading it, and it did a very good job. The bit with the candy factory was a bit silly, though. Still, the rest of it was quite good, and it felt pretty natural.
And of course it took AJ most of the day to figure out she was actually on dates. Though it probably took Soarin' a bit to realize he was on one as well.
Oh my god, I had no idea this fic was ever on fimfic! :O We miss you, Bobcat!
This is a great read. Sweet and succinct. Will be reading the sequel. Greenthumbed!
I read this story a while back on FF and I loved it. It actually inspired me to write my own Soarin/Jack story. So just thanks for the inspiration!
I love this fic SO much!! I also love the SoarinJack ship!
This has inspired me on many an occasion to have them be an item (practically any story I've written featuring an adult AJ). Thank you.
