Rarity trotted out of the Boutique, the thoughts in her mind racing on overdrive. Everything that had just been told to her was a lot to take in. Most of it she was able to absorb and understand, like how her sister would make up a story about somepony that didn’t exist. However, the one part about all of it that lingered on her mind was the fact that Sweetie Belle, her own sister, had deep rooted feelings for another filly. In all honesty, she really didn’t see much of a problem with it but there was something in the back of her head that just screamed that it was wrong.
Unsure of what to do or what to think, she trotted into town; not going anywhere in particular, but just somewhere where she could clear her head.
“Sweetie Belle,” she said in a hushed whisper, as she neared the library. As she did, she looked at the tree home and decided to seek some advice from somepony that would have an idea about what to do.
“Twilight,” she said to herself as she neared the front door of the library, “If there’s anypony who would have an idea about this, it’d definitely be her! I’m sure she’s read a few books on the subject and would be more than happy to help me with this predicament!”
Rarity opened the door of the library to see Twilight sitting at a small table, her nose stuck in a book, as it always was. The moment that she entered the door, the librarian’s attention was immediately drawn to her. Before she could give her a warm welcome, she saw the look on her face and instantly knew that something was wrong.
“Hi, Rarity. Is something wrong?” asked Twilight, as she placed a bookmark in the book she was reading and made her way over to the white unicorn.
“Twilight, I need to talk to you about something rather important and need your honest opinion about it,” said Rarity, as she sat on her haunches in front of the lavender mare.
“Okay,” said Twilight, a serious look on her face, “What seems to be the problem?”
After taking a deep breath, Rarity explained the whole situation to her. She told her about what had happened to her sister, about her feelings towards another filly, and the whole ordeal that was in between.
As she was finishing up her story, Twilight had a look on her face. However, it wasn’t one of shock or disapproval, but one of deep rooted thought; it looked as if she was really thinking about what Rarity was saying and taking it to heart.
By the time Rarity had finished her story, she said to her, “You see, Twilight, dear, I seem to be caught between a rock and a hard place! I just don’t know what to do about all this.”
After several seconds of thinking, Twilight looked up at he friend and said, “What exactly are you conflicted about?”
“Well, you see, it’s not that I don’t mind the two of them together like they are nor do I see anything wrong with it,” she explained, “But I don’t want them to be made fun of for this by the rest of Ponyville, or even Equestria, for that matter. I don’t think everypony would take too kindly to something like this.”
Twilight nodded her head, slightly, and said, “I understand where you’re coming from and your concerns about your sister, but I think that you should let them be...‘together’ like they are. I admit it might take some getting used to, but I don’t think anypony is really going to ridicule them for something like this.”
“How can you be so sure, Twilight?” asked Rarity, “I mean, how often do you see two mares in a relationship like this? I just don’t want her, or even Scootaloo, to be made fun of for the rest of their lives.”
“Actually...” said Twilight, focusing her thoughts for a moment, “I see mares together like that quite often, not just here, but back when I lived in Canterlot. As a filly, I used to ask Shining Armor why two girls were together like that all the time.”
“Really?” she asked, her eyes widening with surprise, “What did your brother say when you asked him that?”
Twilight simply smiled and said, “He told me that he didn’t know why they were, but, as long as they were happy, there was nothing wrong with it. And now, I think that’s something that you should take to consideration.”
Rarity sat there, her eyes focusing on the unicorn before her. Seeing this as her cue, Twilight continued to speak.
“You see, two mares, or even two stallions, being together is as common as you may think. Sometimes, they develop feelings for each other, especially when they’ve known each other for a very long time,” explained Twilight, “Take Sweetie Belle, for example. She and Scootaloo have known each other for a very long time, haven’t they?”
Rarity simply nodded in response.
“As a result, it’s only natural for them to develop feelings for each other like that, especially at a young age like they are.”
Twilight trotted over to Rarity and placed a hoof on her shoulder, a soft smile on her face. “I know this is very new for you and that you’re only looking out for your sister, but I think the best thing for you to do is to let them be.”
Finally able to speak, Rarity said, “Are you sure that’s a good idea?”
Twilight smiled and said, “Of course I do. This is just a natural phase of life. Like I said, it might take some getting used to, but as long as they’re happy, everything will be alright in the end, you’ll see.”
Rarity looked at the ground, her forehoof making small circles on the floor. The more she thought about what Twilight had said, the more it started to make sense.
“You’re right, Twilight,” she finally said, looking up at her friend, “There is nothing wrong with the two of them being together like they are. As her older sister, I should be there to support her, no matter what. If this is what makes her happy, then who am I to step in the way?”
With that, she offered a small hug to the lavender unicorn and said, “Thank you so much for your help.”
“You’re welcome, Rarity,” said Twilight, “What are friends for, right? Glad to be of assistance.”
With that, she made her way to the library’s door and left, a smile on her face and her mind made up. However, she didn’t take two steps out the door before she stopped and had a shocked expression on her face. Hovering before her was a mare that she didn’t expect to see, who appeared to be entering the library just as she was walking out.
“Rainbow Dash?” she asked out loud, her pupils in pin points.
“‘Sup, Rarity?” said Rainbow Dash, as she flew over to the white unicorn, “Long time, no see! How’s it been?”
Rarity had to shake her head a few times to get her thoughts together before she could say anything to her. “Where have you been for the past few days? Applejack and Twilight were both...”
“Yeah, yeah, I know,” moaned the rainbow-mane Pegasus, “I already spoke to Applejack about it and was just getting ready to explain it to Twilight. I had to leave town for a few days for ‘storm patrol’ in Hoofington. The storm that had passed went from there all the way to Ponyville. Since the team captain of Hoofington was sick with the ‘feather flu’, I needed to leave town to take his place!”
“Well,” said Rarity, whipping her mane out of her eyes, “You could have, at least, told somepony that you were leaving. You had most of us worried!”
“Yeah, sorry about that,” Rainbow chuckled, “It was kind of last minute, so I didn’t have much time to actually say anything to anypony. Sorry if I had you worried!”
“No, no, it’s quite alright,” she said, smiling, “As long as you’re okay. Did Fluttershy accompany you with your storm patrol?”
“Yeah, she did,” said Rainbow, as she rolled her eyes, “It took some convincing, but she finally managed to come along. You know how she is with storms, especially the ones like that one.”
“I see,” said Rarity, “Well, I need to get going. I’ll see you later, then?”
“No problem. Catch ya later!” she said, as she landed on her hooves and trotted into the library, no doubt to talk to Twilight about her recent disappearance.
With a smile on her face, Rarity let out a small sigh and began making her way over to the Carousel Boutique, ready to tell her sister and her friend how she felt about the two of them being together.
