    It Seems Green Has Inspired... Fanfiction?

    I got a nice little message from a long time reader that apparently she'd been inspired to write about Fancy Pants and Fleur and Luna...

    I'm not sure what to say. I'm flattered, and humbled.

    I can't link it directly, but here's a text link you can choose to follow. Be forewarned though, it's NSFW. http://animalanimefan.deviantart.com/art/The-Splendours-of-the-Night-486747002?ga_submit_new=10%253A1412646600&ga_type=edit&ga_changes=1&ga_recent=1

    To Clarify Regarding My Views On French

    I think I upset a couple of people, judging by how Green earned a couple more downvotes when my only activity was a blog post. So to clarify: I do not feel that French is a pretentious language. I think it's rather beautiful. But then, I don't speak it, so to me, it sounds lovely. It also strikes me as the type of thing that an upper class pony might do in a social setting: speak a language she is certain the other pony doesn't speak, to insult them while smiling.

    If I have insulted any french speakers in my naivety... I sincerely apologize.

    Regarding Chapter 28: French To Equestrian

    For those (like myself) who do not speak french and were confused by Fleur's utterances, a brief explanation.

    I do not, as previous stated, speak french. I do however believe that somepony named Fleur De Lis should occasionally speak the language.

    In context, we have this scene.

    Rarity cleared her throat, prompting Fleur to look back in her direction. While Fluttershy had been talking, she’d been adding five more glasses from around the room, all carefully sipped from. “Ahem. Fleur, I’d like to introduce my marefriend.

    “Oh?” Fleur’s ears perked up. “I hadn’t noticed you brought anypony else. Where is she?”

    Fluttershy squirmed uncomfortably.

    Fleur looked back and forth between the two of them, flushing when she realized her faux pas. C'est gênant! What you must think of me! I meant no offense, Rarity. Nor to you, Fluttershy.”

    C'est gênant!: How embarrassing!

    “You cherish the princess, mon amie?” Fleur De Lis’ eyes twinkled as she laughed merrily. “Perhaps she is close to you both?”

    “Nothing so crass as that,” Rarity replied, flushing guiltily. After all, it wasn’t as if she’d never entertained the idea. “My friends and I are simply important to both sisters, though I admit we have had occasion to deepen the friendship of late.”

    “Ah, forgive me. I misunderstood.” Fleur’s eyes flicked over to Luna, who was twirling around in her new dress. “Fancy and I have had that opportunity as well.”

    Rarity, who had been in the middle of sipping at a sixth wine glass, nearly choked in shock. “I must be mishearing you—”

    Je resterai bouche cousue. I have said more than I should have and I will thank you if you will forget it,” Fleur said quickly. “Our younger princess does not need a scandal laid at her hooves.”

    Je resterai bouche cousue: I won't say anymore.

    Sorry for any confusion to native speakers and google translate users alike, but that's what I meant to have these phrases mean. I did pretty extensive searches for proper phrasing, but this is the risk you take when you try to utilize a language you don't speak yourself, sadly.

    Oh, and for those who stayed to read through all of this, the next chapter will be posted promptly on the 1st. I am doing everything I can to keep to that steady schedule of once a month, and so far it's been working (since April it's been consistent.)

    And for anyone whose eyes glazed and are somehow reading the end of this: TL:DR Steel does not speak French, and if you look up a little you'll see what I wanted Fleur to say.

Comment: Fun. Nice. Cute. Funny.

Rainbow just can't get over being an egghead, but perfectly fine with being with an egghead. :twilightblush:

#2 · 106w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

And RD STILL cares more about being thought of as an egghead then being in a relationship. :facehoof:

#3 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

I love it! Looking forward to more.

Please keep writing, I'll keep reading!

#4 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

lol you've got me hooked! :coolphoto:

#5 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

Oh Rainbow Dash! Your reputation will never recover from that article by Gabby Gums.You may just come out behind the book shelves. :raritywink:

#6 · 106w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

I hate really good one-shots, because I know there's no' MOAR' to shout for :pinkiesad2:

#7 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

This is funny. :pinkiehappy:

More. Must nom on more this Twidash.

#9 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

Well done! I :heart: Twidash

#10 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

Really fun, with some laugh-out-loud moments. More please! :twilightsmile:

#11 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

Sweet.  Like... Pinkie Pie.  That kind of sweet.

Anyways, cute and funny.  Muy bueno, señor Steel.

   En español,

Can't really say much. Shipping's not my thing, and outside that, there's really no story to it: too easy and clean and generic.

-Scott

#13 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

>>1391711 Correct, its not designed for drama. It's just meant to be a little feel good one shot. But thanks for commenting.

#14 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

>>1391719 Also, there looks to be a missing line-space before 'Twilight, please open the door?'

Have you considered using proper dashes instead of hyphens? I only really learned about it a couple of months ago, but it already looks weird to me.

#15 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

This story was like a delicious cookie with all of my favorite ingredients!

But now I ated it. :fluttercry:

#16 · 106w, 3d ago · 2 · ·

GAH! it's not long enough :twilightoops:

I want more! :raritycry:

It was short and sweet and although I think I prefer the somewhat longer stories with a little emotional tension this was great. :twilightsmile:

#18 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

A fantastic little story, loved it.

#20 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Short, sweet, cute, and funny.

You nailed all of the characters' personalities, and the overall plot felt believable.

Good job.

#21 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Good story, love it. :twilightsmile::heart::rainbowkiss:

>>1394553

One question: Why this story don't apear in my favorite list nor my read later list? I only can access from the post that you send to the followers of Green.

#22 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1395201 because its not officially visible to the site yet. its still waiting for approval.

#23 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

TwiDash story from Steel Resolve? DONE. No need for the Read Later list, this one goes on top of the pile. Short and adorable, in character, believable, well written - all the hallmarks of the kind of fic I could read all day. Gold star & thumbs up for you!

#24 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Cute :rainbowkiss::heart::twilightblush:

#25 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1391719

Hey! You know, what you should do? You should do a one shot featuring Raridash! :pinkiegasp:

Yes! What a great idea! :pinkiehappy:

:rainbowkiss: < -"That's an awesome idea!"

:raritystarry: < -"The best idea!"

< -"That is a great idea! I'm glad I thought of it!"

#26 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Liked it.  Very cute.

#27 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

great story but my favorite part was when you used the word cravenly. i love the word craven and you dont see it a lot today. So, thank you

#28 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Very cute, and very funny. :pinkiesad2: A one-hit-wonder! :derpytongue2:

#29 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Brought here by DawnFade's recommendation, and it was worth it. I may have to take a look at Green.

#30 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1398925 It's a good read. If you try it out prepare your body for drama, cute, and sexy. In that order. Stretching is recommended.

#31 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Why do I feel so strongly that I've read this before? Have you posted this someplace else?

#32 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

:rainbowlaugh: that ending

#33 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1398988 Nope, just finished it a couple nights ago.

#34 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1398998

...Curious.

#35 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Excellent, and almost overwhelmingly cute. But why does this have a comedy tag? It was a bit silly, but I didn't notice anything particularly funny about it.

#36 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

A little sudden, but funny

#37 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1399023 Well... that was the direction I was going for when I wrote it. My main shipfic Green has some funny moments too, but no comedy tag because that's not the intent. With this I was going for a fluffy little romance about a couple just forming over a mutual love. One of them happens to be closeted... but not about her sexuality.

#38 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1398948 Hey, didn't remember that you were the So, you've grown wings author, I'm surprised I didn’t have you on watch before now. I will definitely have to give it a read.

#39 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

lol

So how did you two meet?

:rainbowdetermined2: - I was doing tricks!! Yep! Bonded over my awesome stunt flying and incredible acrobatics AND NOTHING ELSE!!

:twilightblush: - Eh heh, yes that's right, nothing else...

A fun little read.

Especially since what Twi is saying about Dash needing to apply herself to the technical side of flying is absolutely true.

I'm not a TwiDash fan, but this was enjoyable enough for a quickfic.

#40 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Bravo :moustache:

#41 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Books are now drugs... and Twilight is the drug dealer.  I could have been happy with the story left at just that little concept alone, with Rainbow sneaking out at night to read at Twilight's, but the romance was the icing on top of the cake.  Well done.

#42 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

>>1399279 This... you get it. Thank you. :pinkiehappy:

#43 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Not much to say about this that hasn't already been said, it was short, sweet and ludicrously cute. :twilightsmile:

I will add that Dash not caring about what anyone thinks of the relationship, but worried about being discovered studying fits her absolutely perfectly. :rainbowkiss:

#44 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Yep, cute lil story, amazing characterization.  Bonus points for "fortress of blanketude." :scootangel:
