After a few minutes, Rainbro returns and knocks on the door. You quickly rush over to it, and let her inside. She walks into the house, and shakes off the snow that had accumulated on her mane and fur.
“So? How’d it go?” you ask, curious as to what had become of Applejack in such a short amount of time; the lake was much farther away than that, and not even Rainbro could fly that fast while carrying Applejack’s weight, and return in how quickly she did.
She snickers. “Didn’t quite make it to the lake, but I have a feeling you’ll like what happened even better.”
“Where’d you leave her?” you ask, raising an eyebrow, your curiosity piqued.
“Let’s just say she’ll be a bit tied up for the time being,” Rainbro grins up at you. “Big Mac and Granny Smith were out and saw me carrying her by, and they offered to take care of her.”
“You had Big Mac lasso her legs together, didn’t you.”
“Oh Anon, you can read me like a book!” she grins widely, waving her hoof around. Big Mac and Granny Smith are always watching out for you. If Rainbro wasn’t already your bro, Big Mac and Granny Smith definitely would be.
Would that even work? You’d have to fit “bro” somewhere in both of their names…
…Big BroKintosh and Brony Smith?
“So, which one was next on the list of movies?” you ask Rainbro, coming back from your spacing out.
Her eyes widen in surprise. “Oh yeah, that’s right, I almost forgot!” she exclaims, rushing over to the television. You walk over with her, and she hands you the case to the next movie the two of you have in store. “Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone!” she grins up at you.
“Is it good?”
“It’s the first one I ever read. It’s the one that got me into the series in the first place. Oh yeah. It’s good, all right,” she smirks up at you, hitting the ‘Play’ button. Both of you crash onto the couch, and as you pull up a blanket to keep the two of you warm, she unexpectedly curls up next to you. You think nothing of it, of course; it’s cold, and she probably just wants the extra body heat. “Oh my gosh, it’s starting!” she gasps, letting out another squee. You chuckle a bit as the opening of the movie starts…
“Oh no, did he just-!”
“Oh yeah, he did!” Rainbro exclaims as Ahuizotl snatches the relic from Daring Do with his hand-tail. Both of you are on the edge of the couch once again in excitement. This one was even more entertaining than the first one you watched, if the fact that you didn’t move in fear that it would ruin the experience had any merit to that statement.
The two of you stay in that position until Daring Do comes in and takes the relic back at the end of the movie. By the credits, the two of you are literally cheering and jumping up and down in excitement and joy as Daring Do runs off into the jungle once again to make her getaway.
“Wahoo!” you exclaim, pulling Rainbro into a huge brohug, fueled by the adrenaline of the situation. She wraps her hooves back around your waist, and she looks a bit flustered as she does. When the hug ends, she doesn’t let go. “Uh… bro?”
Her eyes widen, and she shakes her head quickly before looking up at you. “Oh, y-yeah, sorry about that…” she chuckles nervously, letting you go. You look outside; by now, it’s somewhere around mid-afternoon. “So, which one now?” she asks as you walk over to the movie pile.
“How about this one?” you reply, picking up another Daring Do movie, thinking that you should keep the trend going; two out of three have been good so far, those are damn good odds.
However, when you show her the cover, her eyes widen and her face instantly goes beet red, and she shakes her head violently. “Oh, no-no-no-no-no, you don’t want to watch that one,” she stammers, flying over quickly to try to take the case from you.
You keep it out of her reach, hiding it behind your back and using your hand as a buffer between her and the movie case. “And why’s that, hm?” you ask, a smug grin on your face.
You didn’t think it was possible, but lo’ and behold, her face gets even redder. “Um, well… that one’s not nearly as good as the others.”
“Oh? What makes you say that?” you ask, still keeping it out of her reach.
“Well… there’s not nearly as many action scenes of her kicking butt! And stuff…” she mutters, still unable to fight the blush on her cheeks.
“What kind of stuff, hm? Is there something that happens that you don’t want me to see?”
Her wings instantly flap outward, shaking a bit nervously. “Um…” Why do her wings always do that in situations like this? She should be used to it by now; she knows you don’t mean it or anything. “F-fine, if that’s how you want it, go ahead and put it in!” she grumbles under her breath.” You snicker at your victory, before putting the movie in and pressing ‘play’.
An hour or two later…
FUCK FUCK FUCK OH SWEET HOLY JESUS WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!
You shouldn’t have done that.
“Heheh. Told ya,” she grins, a light blush still on her cheeks. Your eyes feel like they should be burned from the inside out for what you have witnessed.
“Uh… Didn’t see that coming…”
She snickers a bit, her wings just slightly out as she watches you recover from it. “Here, drink this, it’ll make it better,” she says, handing you a leftover bottle of Applejack Daniels, grabbing another for herself. The two of you clank bottles together, before taking a huge swig of the drink.
This continues until you no longer feel uncomfortable about the scene you just witnessed. “Y-y’know… This movie ain’t half-bad…” you grin, relaxing back into the couch.
Rainbro nods, nuzzling up against you once again as the movie continues. Your drunken state is even less aware of it, however, which causes you to be even more caught off-guard when she asks her next question.
“Anon…” she turns to you. “What… what do you think of me?”
“What’re ya talkin’ ‘bout?” you ask, looking down at her.
“Well, you know…” she blushes, twirling her hooves a bit, “Do you consider me a… friend?”
What…? Where the fuck did this come from? “O-of course I do! You’re… You’re my bro, after all!”
“Yeah…” she mutters, sighing a bit.
“Hey, wha’s wrong?”
“It’s just… I dunno, you ever think that we could be… more than just normal bros?” she looks up at you, her magenta eyes filled with a sense of longing, almost.
“Wha? You mean, like super bros?”
Fuck you and your drunken logic.
“N-no, not quite…” she turns to face you. “I mean… like more than bros, or super bros, or super-mega-awesome bros! Y’know?”
“…Whad’ya mean, bro?”
Fuck you, your drunken logic, and your drunken obliviousness.
“Damn it Anon, you’re not listening to me!” she grunts angrily, shoving you down onto the couch under her. “I mean like a special somepon… someone!” she nearly shouts, her face flushed.
Your eyes widen. Wait… did she just say…
C’mon Anon, this is your bro we’re talking about! Both of you have been together since day one! But she’s a pony and you’re a human… But she’s just as human as anything else you’ve ever made friends with!
Damn conflicting thoughts in your head. You need a drink.
“Uh… Anon?” Rainbro’s voice snaps you back into reality. She’s still hovering over you, your faces just inches apart. Your mind is still attempting to process everything that just happened in the span of the last twenty seconds or so.
Mind.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Restart? Y/N
The silence between the two of you continues as she can see your mind is working at full drunken capacity. “Anon…? You in there buddy?”
Mind.exe is running slowly. Would you like to clear up some space? Y/N
“…You think I’m your… your special someone?”
Your drunken mind is still trying to process this part.
