    Love Songs in the Key of FiM: The Complete Album

    Since the album’s finally complete, I thought I’d do a master post for it. One of the most interesting parts of the experience has been that, in reviewing the songs, I think my singing improved more than my guitar-playing did. I hadn’t expected that at all—if anything, I thought the reverse would be true.

    Also, the songs I recorded using an actual separate mic came out sounding worse than the songs I recorded using the built-in mic on my laptop. Go figure.

    Love Songs in the Key of FiM: Complete!

    Some of you who've known me a while may remember my ongoing project to write and record a love song for every inter-Mane Six ship. Today, after almost two and a half years, I've finally finished. Here are the last three songs that complete the album. (As always, the entire album can be found on my SoundCloud page.)

    "The Best Scare I've Ever Had" (TwiShy)

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    "Everything's All Right" (RariPie)

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    "This Is Not the End (It's Only Beginning)" (Omniship)

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    "The Best Scare I've Ever Had" lyrics:

    I wish I knew

    Just what to say to you

    But I don’t

    But I don’t

    I wish I knew

    Just what to say to you

    But I don’t

    But I don’t

    But if I did

    Here’s what I might say

    The next time

    You glanced my way

    I’d tell you that

    You scare me so bad

    And it’s the best scare

    I’ve ever had

    You always see

    A way to believe in me

    Even when I don’t

    Even when I don’t

    You always see

    A way to believe in me

    Even when I won’t

    Even when I won’t

    Even when I hid

    That phoenix from view

    You helped me out

    And you got us through

    And when you’re near

    I always want to say

    That you scare me in

    The best possible way

    I wish I had

    The nerve to come clean

    To look you in the eye

    And say what I mean

    I’d tell you that

    You scare me so bad

    And it’s the best scare

    I’ve ever had.

    "Everything's All Right" lyrics:

    I’ve burned all my bridges

    I’ve drank all my wine

    I’ve cut out my own heart

    And I’ve set it on the line

    A laugh catches in my throat

    When I say I’m doing just fine

    While the tears in my eyes

    Confess that I’m lying

    But that’s when you come to me

    With a smile so large and bright

    You take me into your embrace

    And you whisper, “Everything’s all right”

    And everything’s all right

    You never, ever fail

    You never let me down

    I cannot help but laugh

    Whenever you’re around

    And should I take a stumble

    You pick me off the ground

    Once I was blind to your charms

    Was lost but now I’m found

    And now when you come to me

    Your laugh so big and bright

    I pull you close and

    I whisper, “Everything’s all right”

    Yes, it’s all right

    Princes are overrated

    And sonnets are so cliche

    I’ll accept nothing less

    Than a love limerick a day

    And who wants red roses?

    I’d rather a pink bouquet

    Just one kiss from your lips

    Leaves nothing more to say

    Because when you come to me

    Like a beacon through the night

    I feel your shining love and it

    Makes everything all right

    You make it all right.

    "This Is Not the End (It's Only Beginning)" lyrics:

    I’m gonna tell you a story

    That took place not too long ago

    ‘Bout a girl who knew it all

    Except for what’s most important to know

    Until the day she left

    For a little backwater town

    Just supposed to be a visit

    But she stuck around

    (I stuck around)

    She pushed everyone away

    Said she had no need for friends

    But five ponies didn’t listen and

    Those same five saved her in the end

    They became the best of friends

    Together they went through it all

    And maybe it shouldn’t have surprised her

    That she started to fall

    (I started to fall)

    True as the ages

    Faithful as the sun

    Giving with abandon

    To each and every one

    Sweet as the spring rain

    Hopeful as the dew

    You made me what I am

    And I’m so grateful to you

    So many memories

    Battles fought, battles won

    Hugs shared and tears cried

    Each and every one

    You were there for it all

    And beside me you’ve stayed

    You’re the answer to a prayer

    I didn’t know to pray

    And I love you

    It hurts, it’s so true

    Yes, I love you

    Nothing else to do

    Because I love you

    I’ll shout ‘til I’m blue

    That I love you

    Yes, I do

    I’m gonna tell you a story

    ‘Bout a girl who’s still growing

    With her loved ones there to help

    Teach her the things worth knowing

    They’re still the best of friends

    Together through all this time

    And I’m still so grateful that

    I’m yours and you are mine

    I am yours and you are mine.

    Story Reading: "Almost Beautiful"

    The Living Library Player Society recently did a live reading of my RariLight story "Almost Beautiful," and it can be found here for your listening pleasure. Many thanks to TLLPS for both choosing my story to read and for letting me know about it! (Extra bonus points are awarded to the reader who actually sang the snippet of "A Thousand Years" that I quoted before the story began.)

    Love Songs in the Key of FiM: RariLight and AppleShy

    For those who may not have been around long enough to know—or who’ve just forgotten—I have a long-running project, entitled Love Songs in the Key of FiM, to write and record a love song for each of the fifteen different Mane Six ships. Up to now, I’ve posted songs for RainbowPie, RariJack, FlutterDash, AppleDash, TwiPie, RariShy, TwiDash, RariDash, FlutterPie, TwiJack, and ApplePie.

    Here are the songs I just recorded and uploaded for RariLight and AppleShy. I am especially pleased with the RariLight song—I think it’s by far the best I’ve written, so far, as well as the song that has my best singing.

    The entire album can be found on my SoundCloud page. Hope you enjoy!

    "Let Me Be Your Knight" (RariLight)

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    SPECIAL THANKS go to EarthSong9405, who helped inspire this song during a conversation we had over on her dA page about Rarity and Twilight.

    Once upon a time

    A long, long time ago

    Lived a princess fair

    Beautiful, head to toe

    Wise and brave was she

    And strong and kind and true

    With shaking voice she told me,

    "Your highness, I love you"

    "Let me be your knight," she said

    "Let me serve you faithfully

    To love a princess, not to become,

    I know now is my destiny”

    But I smiled in return

    And gently shook my head

    I took her hoof in my own

    And this is what I said:

    "I’m afraid you’ve got it wrong

    Destiny, you see, is fake

    Fate is not what happens to us

    But is something that we make”

    "You cannot be my knight," I said

    "Because you’re a princess to me

    Let me be your knight, instead

    And I will serve you faithfully”

    "Let me be your knight," she said

    "And I’ll be your princess too

    As long as you are by my side

    There’s nothing I can’t do”

    "Let me be your knight," we said

    "To protect you like a mighty tree

    And you can be my knight, as well

    And do the same for me”

    And so it was, and so it went

    In that kingdom now long past

    We lived well, and we loved well

    The years went by so fast

    I kept my word and my faith

    And I stayed there by her side

    "I love you," I told her

    As she smiled before she died.

    "Sweet dreams, my knight," I said

    "Where you go now, remember me

    And I’ll remember you, my love

    And how you served so faithfully.”

    "Never You Fear" (AppleShy)

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    Step by step

    Mile by mile

    Hang on tight

    It’ll be just a while

    I’ll get you up

    This mountain, my dear

    Just hold on

    And never you fear

    Step by step

    Inch by inch

    Somehow I’ll find

    A way to not flinch

    I’ll save you from

    This dragon, my dear

    Just hold on

    And never you fear

    Stick with me

    And I’ll never let you down

    I’d move mountains just

    To keep you safe and sound

    You give me strength

    To persevere

    And you chase away

    The shadows and the fear

    You chase away

    The shadows and the fear

    Little by little

    Bit by bit

    We’ll figure out

    How we each fit

    Apples and animals

    Both are near and dear

    But we’ll make this work

    Never you fear

    It’s just a hop, skip,

    And a jump to over there

    Somehow I’ll prove myself

    Worthy to be your mare

    Though the way is murky

    One thing is clear

    We’ll figure this out

    Never you fear

    So hang onto me

    And I’ll hang onto you

    We’ll be okay

    As long as we stay true

    True to one another

    True to what’s sincere

    So just hang on

    And never you fear

    Hang on, hang on,

    And never you fear.

    Thirty Minute Pony Stories: Legacy Prompt #1

    Recently Thirty Minute Pony Stories, the pony writing prompt blog for which I moderated for a few years and over 500 prompts, closed up shop. A number of TMP followers, however, have decided to carry on with follower-submitted prompts in the TMP group here on Fimfiction. The very first legacy prompt has been posted, and it can be found here.

    Thanks go to Esle Ynopemos for running the prompt!

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.

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.

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


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


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 · 155w, 2d 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:

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

#17 · 155w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·


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.

MOAR, MOAR, MOAR. :pinkiehappy:

#24 · 155w, 10h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·


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.

Keep up the amazing work. :twilightsmile:

I say, Big Mac shipping is order in this fic.

Thanks so much, everyone! I appreciate all the comments and especially that folks are enjoying the story. :)


Ask and ye shall receive--for, lo, there SHALL BE Big Mac shipping! But probably not in the next chapter. Eventually, though.

#46 · 154w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 6 ·

Aw, thanks for all the encouraging comments, y'all. I'm so pleased that I seem to be doing some justice to the characters.


I literally LOLed. I don't even really know why I found the joke that funny, but I did. :)




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" ( A bit unusual in that Dash is the one pursuing Pinkie.

- Chistery's "Rose Tinted" ( 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" ( 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" ( 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 · 154w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

The End? :pinkiesad2:

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

#48 · 154w, 1d 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 · 154w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 7 ·


#50 · 154w, 1d 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.
