Rainbow Dash's dad, Blue Streak, has been lonely and sad ever since Firefly passed away. Rainbow has tried her best to cheer him up, but to no avail. On her latest visit, she finds out that her dad has been seeing someone and is now happier than ever. She couldn't be happier for him, until she found out who it was.

Editing and idea provided by: Bronystories.

Writing (mostly) done by me. Special thanks to him for being awesome.

Yipes,, my reaction after I read this :pinkiegasp::applejackconfused::rainbowderp: then I liked right away:eeyup:

#5 · 110w, 17h ago · 7 · 2 · Loyalty ·

Looks good! Your writing gives this story a level of heart which my own stories rarely achieve. :heart:

I eagerly await the next chapter. :twilightsmile:

#6 · 110w, 17h ago · 1 · · Loyalty ·

This will be... interesting.

#7 · 110w, 17h ago · 22 · · Loyalty ·

*Reads summary.* Mmm this could be interesting.

*looks at character tags* :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#9 · 110w, 17h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Oh, this is going to be gooooood

#10 · 110w, 17h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Oh god, this should be entertaining. New girlfriend is literally young enough to be your sister.

#11 · 110w, 16h ago · 5 · 33 · Loyalty ·

...What?

At first I was like, oh, it's just a dumb one-shot with a stupid reveal and it's missing the scene after Dash leaves where Twilight and Dash's dad have a good laugh at a successful prank pulled off.

But apparently this fic isn't 90% done. I don't know how I feel about that.

#12 · 110w, 16h ago · 21 · 5 · Loyalty ·

>>2436277 If your not laughing, something in you is broken.

#13 · 110w, 16h ago · 3 · 9 · Loyalty ·

>>2436297

Well, yes, the premise of the fic thus far has broken my brain but not in a good way.

#14 · 110w, 16h ago · 1 · 1 · Loyalty ·

Potential, I like it.

#15 · 110w, 16h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Yes

Just yes

#16 · 110w, 16h ago · 3 · · Loyalty ·

Mother of God... :rainbowderp::twilightoops::applejackunsure:

#17 · 110w, 16h ago · 5 · · Loyalty ·

Discord Tag, Does Not Compute :rainbowhuh:

On a serious note, How would Discord fit into this? Dash dating Discord out of spite/revenge/love?:twilightoops:

either way an interesting concept and look forward to the rest :twilightsmile:

#18 · 110w, 16h ago · 6 · · Loyalty ·

Okay, I'm confuzzled... Twilight, how in your name did you meet RD's father?!:twilightoops::rainbowhuh::facehoof:

#19 · 110w, 16h ago · 21 · · Loyalty ·

I re-read this and I couldn't stop laughing!

“I just came to catch up with my dad about what I do in Ponyville now. I also wanted to know what he’s been doing, and I guess I’m looking right at her.”

“That’s the Dad that I know. Getting right back on the horse,” she said with a small chuckle.

“It may have taken him five years... but he’s finally doing it.”

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#20 · 110w, 16h ago · 3 · · Loyalty ·

A separate room for the wife? What is this, the Dick Van Dyke Show?

#21 · 110w, 16h ago · 6 · · Loyalty ·

>>2436448

That show was hilarious.

#22 · 110w, 16h ago · · · Loyalty ·

I know we only saw all of 2 seconds of Rainbow Dash's dad (or possibly her brother) but the idea of him being a librarian still feels forced. Still, given the premise of the story, it is a logical choice to support that connection. I see we've already set up the scene where Rainbow Dash isn't paying attention because she's so preoccupied and winds up getting in trouble with the weather issues Twilight just mentioned, kinda cliche, but cliche's can be good if they're used properly.

#23 · 110w, 16h ago · · · Loyalty ·

mildly sad, funny, i like it

i had a perfect image in my head of rainbowdashes jaw dropping to the floor when she saw twilight

#24 · 110w, 16h ago · · · Loyalty ·

>>2436399

well, in here he´s a librarian, so i guess the question is kinda redundant.

#25 · 110w, 16h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Well...that was unexpected...let's see where this goes I guess. I was expecting Fluttershy though, so this caught me for a loop pretty well. :twilightoops:

#26 · 110w, 15h ago · 12 · · Loyalty ·

>>2436391

Maybe Dash is right and Discord made Blue Streak and Twilight fall in love, just for trolling her.

Genius.

#27 · 110w, 15h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Either "Princess Twilight Sparkle" is actually Discord as her (and the reason I know this is because Discord is in the "Characters section".), or Discord put Twilight and Blue Streak under a love spell so that they could love eachother.

#28 · 110w, 15h ago · · · Loyalty ·

OHHH! This is excellent, never had I thought of seeing a story where one's best friend is dating one's recently-widowed dad, and find myself really liking the story! I swear, this is really good, having rainbow's dad dating Princess Twilight Sparkle. I had thought thought it was Fluttershy that Blue Streak is dating, as he pointed out that the mare in question is not much of a flyer like him, I never saw that coming to who it actually is.

This story have potential to be really good. I can't wait to see more of this story as it develops, to see how RD is adapting to the fact that one of her best friends is dating her dad and it may even come down to being part of the family... as a step-mom that is.

Keep up the good work man.:pinkiehappy:

PS. I'll be sure to thank Bronystories as well

#30 · 110w, 15h ago · 4 · 2 · Loyalty ·

Blue Streak scoffed. “Now, I’ll have you know that being a librarian is one of the most physically-taxing jobs in Cloudsdale. Why, just last week, I got a papercut on my hoof and I only cried for fifteen minutes. Beat that.”

lol, Spongebob. :rainbowlaugh:

#31 · 110w, 15h ago · 1 · · Loyalty ·

woah.... twilight rainbow dashes dad?

:twilightblush:

#33 · 110w, 15h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Oh the shenanigans that will ensue. Oh, the possibilities. :pinkiecrazy:

#34 · 110w, 15h ago · 17 · · Loyalty ·

Blue Steak winced at his poorly-aimed throw.

what?:rainbowhuh:

#35 · 110w, 15h ago · 2 · 5 · Loyalty ·

I don't think that dashes dad would date again after losing his wife. Doesn't really fit the bill of Loyalty and all. I think I'm gonna pass on this one.

#36 · 110w, 15h ago · 9 · · Loyalty ·

>>2436791 They're having barbeque for dinner :twilightsmile:

#37 · 110w, 15h ago · 6 · 1 · Loyalty ·

:twilightsheepish: That's...odd. Well written, but I can't exactly say the premise speaks to me that much. Sure, it could be funny in the end...but the moment Twilight showed up things just entered a level of weird I'm not comfortable with.

Good job on the writing end, and I find it funny that two Rainbow dad stories are being featured right now. I'm bummed I didn't really like either (my own  rushed mess included) :twilightsheepish:

#38 · 110w, 15h ago · · · Loyalty ·

Ohh...

Oh Celestia...

Ohh Celestia why.

What in the name of Celestia's holy crystal balls...

Why.

WHY.

This is too amazing.

oh snap!!!! This is some Jerry Springer stuff right here!!!   :twilightoops:

#40 · 110w, 15h ago · 6 · 1 · Loyalty ·

Dash Dad is like TWICE Twilights age! How does that work?

#41 · 110w, 14h ago · · · Loyalty ·

This has potential, hope to read some more soon (or later, take your time)

>Discord is in the character list

>IN a skype call with Fanthrose

"pffffffffffffffffffffffftHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA"

Oh my Celestia, this story is awesome!

Also, Spongebob reference FTW! :rainbowlaugh:

>>2436867 she has a  schoolfilly crush on a several thousand year old monarch that's practically canon. Maybe she just likes older ponies? Go figure.
