    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.

    "Then She Smiles" - RainbowPie

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    "It All Falls Apart" - RariJack

    (YouTube) (SoundCloud)

    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.

Many thanks to TLLPS for both choosing my story to read and for letting me know about it!

    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.

Scootaloo has never really cared much for Pinkie Pie, and she definitely doesn’t like the way Pinkie calls her hero “Dashie.” But for some strange reason, Pinkie seems fixated on her and insistent on meddling in Scootaloo’s life. Whether Scootaloo likes it or not.

Now with TV Tropes page!

First time I've seen Dashie being viewed as a bad name by a character.

I don't usually read fiction about anything to do with scootaloo, but this ill track. Great 4 stars!

Pinkie Says dashie in the cartoon

Its Cannon

Gtfo Scootaloo, N1 likes you.... Okay well i like her a bit but still.. GTFO



#5 · 151w, 3h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

You've poked my interest... My interest doesn't like being poked, but I love it! :pinkiehappy:

You got yourself a tracker :pinkiesmile:


#6 · 151w, 2h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

This could be interesting, you definitely got my interest. I'll be tracking.

#7 · 151w, 1h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

definitely wanna know more. Tracking

#8 · 151w, 1h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hmmm...this could be interesting...maybe its just Scoots being paranoid. *Tracks*

#9 · 151w, 1h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Interesting, I don't recall any other fanfiction exploring the relationship between Scootaloo and Pinkie Pie.

I hope they will become good friends after some trouble (would be boring without trouble), also the idea that someone really doesn't like Pinkie Pie could be really interesting, I wonder if Pinkie ever encountered somepony that didn't like her.

So, please continue !:twilightsmile:

#10 · 151w, 39m ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

irritating when scootaloo thinks "dashie" is a disrespectful name :ajbemused: im just like who cares but im going to track it the other part of the story sounds interesting  :twilightsmile:

#11 · 151w, 15m ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

scoots is obviously an orphan or at the very least a runaway from the looks of things... and from the way I am reading those two flashback sections so is pinkie in this story....I look forward to seeing how this is going to work out....

#12 · 150w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hm... I think this will be quite interesting. Tracking.

#13 · 150w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

First I was like :rainbowhuh:

Then I was like :pinkiehappy:

It was good. Tracking! :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

This poked your interest? Because it stabbed my interest with a spatula. Tracked, 5 stared and what-not.

#15 · 150w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>113428 You try to have your interest poked with a pointy needle, and lets see how you like it :rainbowlaugh:

Still, this is a very good start to something I think I'm going to enjoy immensely :pinkiehappy:


#16 · 150w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Thanks, y'all! Really appreciate that everyone's giving this story a shot, considering it's dual-centric featuring Pinkie and Scoots. I know that's unorthodox.

As always, I shall endeavor not to suck. :)

Also, re: "Dashie" ... I just always figured that Scootaloo might bristle at the nickname as the "-y" and "-ie" are diminutives associated with childhood and such. (Which is why little "Tommy" will often start going by "Thomas" upon reaching adolescence or adulthood.) Since Scootaloo's at the prime age for bucking against nicknames associated with childhood, plus she's overprotective of Dash's "coolness," I always had it in my head that surely she hates that Pinkie calls her hero "Dashie." *shrug*

#17 · 150w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

AH-HA. I KNEW IT!! Poor Pinkie DX Brilliant chapter, btw ^_^

#18 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Ah, the the filly in the flashback-type things is Pinkie Pie. Nice twist :pinkiehappy:

#19 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

wow i was like :pinkiegasp: when i realized it was pinkie in the flashback! you are good!

#20 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I'm confused. Was the first flashback Pinkie or Scootaloo?

#21 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This is getting pretty good. Can't wait to see how this plays out.

#23 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

:) it was so nice of pinky. she kknows scoots little secret and i want to know how. this was wortth looking into!:heart:

#24 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Looks at story: Not Interested.

Looks at Author: He looks familiar

See's that you wrote "Not Unless You Mean It"


One sec, gonna read the story. - . YES. YES. YES! :pinkiecrazy:

#25 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I'm really impressed with this story! The old trope of Scootaloo being a homeless orphan is played very well here, and the way you've characterised her relationship with Pinkie Pie is very interesting. Keen to read more!

#26 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·


They're all Pinkie's.

#27 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Went through the entire thing thinking Scootaloo was the mysterious filly, what a twist!:rainbowkiss:

#28 · 150w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I guess Pinkie's senses were tingling. How else did she new that Scootaloo was a hungry orphan? And offered her sweets on the house? Just a haunch. Great chapter and great story! Can't wait to find out what happens next.:pinkiesmile:

#29 · 150w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Good twist !

And the scene with Pinkie hugging Scoot and whispering in her ear was really really really cute :heart:

Can't wait for more.

#30 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Liking the story so far. Keep it going :twilightsmile:

#31 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

yeah, keep on writing this. i like the idea of a pinkie runaway...seems to make sense in my mind at least

#32 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Wow... for once, Pinkie is the one that is being super sweet and kind to Scoot. Very original to say the least  :pinkiehappy::scootangel:

#33 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Ok, that clears up my question from the previous chapter. It's nice to see a nice back-story for my little Pinkie Pie. :pinkiesmile: And I also love :scootangel: stories, especially when she's an orphan. While some people don't like that I find that it makes a very interesting plot-base. Keep it up!

#34 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Fantastic so far! I can't wait for more! :pinkiehappy:

#35 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

This story is getting better and better. Also, just because you used it twice, every time you say "she ran" I can't help but think of the opening of the hunchback of Notre Dame.

#36 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·


#37 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

I don't know how to express how this story makes me feel. :fluttercry: I was starting to get the impression that Pinkie had been homeless herself, which is why she could tell what Scootaloo was going through and was so willing to help her, but I never expected that revelation. With all the kindness she's received from Applejack and the Cakes, not to mention her other friends, it's no wonder that she wants to pass that happiness on to Scootaloo. This story is amazing and it makes me cry, and I eagerly await the next instalment.

#38 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Will pinkie meet dash in this fic???????

#39 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Hmm. This grabbed my attention at the first chapter, and I only find myself more engrossed as the chapters are added. I'm really looking forward to the next update now.

Of course I am waiting for Scootaloo's reveal, but I am also very curious as to how you will handle Pinkie and the Cakes, and Pinkie and AJ. I mean, does adult AJ know it was Pinkie she brought apples too when she was a filly? Probably yes, but... We'll see how you handle things. Either way, like I said, eager for the next chapter.

#40 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

D'aaaw, runaway Pinkie is SO CUTE. :D :pinkiesmile: :twilightsmile:

#41 · 150w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·


Pinkie back story is best back story! Hope I do right by her.


I maaaaaay have had that line from Hunchback of Notre Dame in mind when I wrote those sentences. Also, I urge everyone to read the entire story in the voice of Clopin. Adds to the ambiance and what-not.

Also, part two, I had to listen to "The Bells of Notre Dame" on repeat for an hour straight last night after reading your comment. 'Cause it's such an amazing song. "Now, here is a riddle, to guess if you can ... sing the bells of Notre Dame ... who is the monster and who is the man?"


Aw, that's sweet of you to say! I'm sorry it made you cry, but also NOT sorry it made you cry, 'cause it's kind of meant to be a heart-jerker of a story.


I was so very temped to insert filly Dash into the story 'cause, y'know, RAINBOW PIE. But I don't think she's gonna fit, sorry. But adult Dash will be making a triumphant reentry.


Thanks! Glad to hear you're diggin' it! And your question will be answered definitively in the next chapter, fear not.

#42 · 150w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Really great work so far.

I am loving the characterization you're giving the various players in each scene, and the pacing is excellent.

#44 · 150w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

loving it, simply loving it so far.  I know the memory of being actually HUNGRY stays with you, and nopony should go through that...  

#45 · 150w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·
