Pinkie Pie's crush on Rainbow Dash is possibly the worst-kept secret in all Equestria. Rainbow doesn't really pay it much attention, though, until Fluttershy asks her to make an important promise. It sounds easy enough to keep ... but a promise, like love, is often harder and more complicated than it first appears.

Warnings for: Adult pony alcohol consumption, romance, and possibly implied consensual adult sexual situations. Involving ponies. As one does.

This is good I reckon, I look forward to seeing more :pinkiehappy:

......The story is there twice......

Good story so far! Also, to put something into italics, either put "" at the beginning and "" at the end of whatever you want changed, or you could simply go over what you wanted italicized and highlight it, then click the "I" button at the top. Or ctrl+i after highlighting. Take your pick. Hope it helps! I hope to read more soon.

Sorry about the double post, but I just realized that I put the italics explanation in italics...whoops, :S. Anyways, use [-i-], (Open bracket, the letter i, closed bracket. Don't use hyphens) to start, and [-/-i-] (Open bracket, forward slash, the letter i, closed bracket. Continuing to avoid the hyphens) to end.

didn't make much sense

Yay~ some pinkieXdash. Gonna follow now.

#9 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Hello, and THANK YOU, readers and commentators! I appreciate all the feedback.

>>54684

Accidental double-posting in chapter 1 should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out!

>>54867

Thanks for the italics lesson! :) I think it might've been a problem with the computer and/or browser I was using. I was at a volunteer gig when I uploaded the first chapter, but now that I'm on my home computer, I seem to be able to use bold and italics just fine.

#10 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I'm impressed. You wrote drunken Dash really well. Just wrote drunk in general very well, I guess. :twilightsmile:

My only problem is that I didn't understand why ---Party of One, when Pinkie was depressed :pinkiesad2: + Dash saying Pinkie has pretty eyes :rainbowkiss: = Pinkie is sad and Mane 6 disapproves :facehoof:--- I literally have no idea where that came from. . .

Can you explain, maybe? Did I miss something? :rainbowhuh:

#11 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Love it! :yay:

#12 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

hmm it seems to be developing well, and please dont ask me about spelling or grammar, that stuff isnt my forte...

#13 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This story is really good! I'm sure to keep on reading:twilightsmile:

#14 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

RainbowPie? PinkieDash? I'm not sure :derpyderp2:

I'm team TwilightXDash but, ehh... I'll go ahead...

#15 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This is extremely good! The tense it's in and your own personal style make it really enthralling. I'll be tracking. :twilightsmile:

Have some stars! :pinkiehappy:

#16 · 158w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Absolutely amazing. I love your writing style, and the story is developing quite nicely. I cannot wait for the next chapter!:rainbowkiss:

#17 · 158w, 15h ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>56705

Thanks for the kind words!

Okay, so I try to be subtle in my writing to not everything is in neon lights but apparently I went overboard and landed into the Valley of Obscure Motivations. Sorry 'bout that.

Everyone who doesn't like getting the author's intentions presented outside the story itself, please stop reading here.

So, the gist of things is ... Rainbow, and everyone else, knows that Pinkie is crushin' on her something fierce. They also all know that RD doesn't return those feelings (suggested, for example, when RD mentions that she pretends she doesn't understand what Pinkie's smile means). When RD flirts with Pinkie at the party, it's just to get a quick ego-boost, because she's feeling kinda down and low--it's not meant as a declaration of love or anything. Or, at least, that's what everyone present assumes, and that's why they react the way they do.

Plus, RD has a hinted-at past of being ... careless ... with other pony's feelings towards her ...

Sorry that was unclear.

>>57217 Thanks for the explanation! :twilightsmile:

When you put it like that I feel silly for not seeing it, but whatev'. :twilightblush: Now it'll make sense! ~~yay~~ :yay:

MOAR, MOAR, MOAR. :pinkiehappy:

I suspect it's because Pinkie is supposed to be obviously head-over-hooves for Dash, and Dash is using her alcoholism as an excuse to tamper with Pinkie's attraction. It's a line deliberately fed to Pinkie to make her think "Dashie thinks I'm cute" so Dash can milk a few seconds of hope and desire out of her to soothe her cracked ego. Unfortunately, as soon as that happens, Pinkie Pie realizes why Dash does it and takes off upstairs, not to check on Gummy but to crack in private so her friends don't have to see how badly Dash's insincere advance just hurt her. Rarity, not being blind to this emotional interchange, bitches at Dash for pulling it. Fluttershy and Applejack, having been Dash's previous flings, recognize it for what it is.

...Uhhhhhhhh....


...You are great. Great. Simply great. Such a big amount of drama...I like where this is going, so I'm going to *Tracks* track this. Good job.

If y'all dig Rainbow Pie and haven't read these stories yet, I highly recommend them. These are the best Rainbow Pie stories I've found, bar none, and the ones that have inspired me to try my hand at writing the pairing (apologies in advance if these are already familiar to you and old news):

- Cloudy Skies' "Rainbow Dash's Best Plan Ever" (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/3542/Rainbow-Dash%27s-Best-Plan-Ever): A bit unusual in that Dash is the one pursuing Pinkie.

- Chistery's "Rose Tinted" (http://yamathan.deviantart.com/gallery/): Sadly, the story seems as though it may be permanently discontinued. Still, even in its incomplete state, this is THE story that all Rainbow Pie stories wish they could be.

- AbsoluteAnonymous' "A Million Things To Do" (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/2356/A-Million-Things-to-Do): It's friend-shipping and not romantic shipping, but it's still a wonderful take on the Rainbow Dash/Pinkie Pie relationship.

- Sleepless Brony's "Romance Reports" bonus chapter, "Private Party" (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1422/18/Romance-Reports/Bonus%3A--Private-Party): It has some very graphic sexual content, but it's a wonderful character exploration. The entire story is wonderful, but this chapter is very specific to Pinkie and Dash.

#47 · 157w, 7h ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

The End? :pinkiesad2:

But great story... 5 stars all the way, of course :pinkiehappy:

#48 · 157w, 7h ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

That was certainly one of the best Rainbow Pie fanfics I've read.  Unlike a lot of fics, it doesn't just shove them together for no particular reason.  Shame to see it end, but no story can go on forever, heh.

I'm thinking Fluttershy and Derpy may need a spin-off fic, though, lol.

#49 · 157w, 7h ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

end....WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

#50 · 157w, 6h ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

The story may be finished, but this is going to my tracks just so I can keep it with the best of the best.

Oh, and take my stars too.
