Do you sometimes find yourself lying awake at night wishing, praying even, that there was more TwiDash Scootadopt fics? If so, then I am pleased to announce the Sparkle Dash Family series!

These are my writings for thirty minute pony stories that I've written with a TwiDash Scootadopt theme. For the most part, they will all take part in the same continuity, unless otherwise noted.

Chapters will be reorganized to follow chronological order as they come out.

TS and RD adopt Scoot?

This is gonna be gooooood!

~Skeeter The Lurker

Update: That was good.

You got any more for this one coming out soon?

~Skeeter The Lurker

I approve of this combination. Do continue.

I think you messed up. I love the Idea of this story, but this would have been a great ending, a fantastic ending. And now you have think of a new one. I hope you can.

PS. longer chapters are needed

They were going wild

Finishing sentences is for losers who can't

I plan on releasing these whenever there is a new TMP prompt, but we'll see how my schedule works out. Glad you liked it! :pinkiehappy:

Will do!

The order these chapters will appear in is not necessarily the same order they take place. Like I said in the description, I'm writing each chapter off of the prompts from the Thirty Minute Pony Stories tumblr blog, so they will jump around quite a bit, time wise. Tribute could be considered the "final chapter", even though it is the first. If nothing else, it shows that we have many years of awesomeness to look forward to!

As far as chapter length goes, there isn't much I can do about that. I'm sticking to the TMP guidelines, which means I only have thirty minutes from start to finish to write each prompt. If in the time frame I can get 2,000 words in, then awesome. If not, well, at least we'll have a constant stream of TwiDash Scootadopt rightJ? :twilightblush:

Ah, I see what you did there
Did you see what I did there though? :pinkiecrazy: Thanks for the catch, should be fixed now.

And thanks to everyone for reading!

Now that's a damn fine way to relax, if I do say so myself!

~Skeeter The Lurker

Good good, seems more like a perfect end of a story, but if you have no specific timeline I guess it doesnt matter :)

Let me be honest with you, I really don't care much for TwiDash, but I am a sucker for Scootalove. I may not follow this but by God we need more Scootalove fics.

Needs more Spike.

these are just what ive been looking for keep it up pls

maybe make a story your writing style is great

Perhaps at some point I'll rearrange the chapters into a chronological order, and Tribute will probably be one of, if not the final chapter.

We can agree on that at least :scootangel:

What the hay is a Spike? I'm sure he'll be in some chapters. I really don't give the little guy the love he deserves.

Scootalove is the best love

Don't be down on yourself. This one reads quite well, I thought.

Also... You take suggestions for prompts?

~Skeeter The Lurker

Well, technically I meant if there was a prompt from the TMP master prompt list that someone wanted to see done, but I guess I could accept prompts from different sources as well. Only cause I like you people though. I just can't promise that I'll use all of them.


Alright. Here's one if you want it, though, it's probably on the list already:

Scoots joy at finally being adopted. Catch is, she doesn't realize who it is until they walk through the door. (Assumes she lives in the orphanage.)

~Skeeter The Lurker

I'm sorry, but I really don't think this chapter was very good...

It was bucking awesome! :rainbowkiss:

:twilightsmile::heart::rainbowdetermined2: + :scootangel: = Best family!

This is awesome :scootangel::twilightsmile::rainbowkiss:

This promps are awesome, waiting for more.

Wonderful! I must say, you do the family dynamic quite well, and I'm interested to see if you do some chapters in that awkward phase right after the adoption has fully sunk in where the true parental bonds start to really form. Take it from someone who is currently writing that, it is not as easy as writing pre-existing bonds. It's also much harder then romantic bonds. Anyway, looks awesome, can't wait for more chapters of this.

That (and the others) was (were) wonderful, sir!
May I have another?

I remember talking about this kind of thing in MDWvsPN. Insta-fave, will read nao. :rainbowdetermined2:

Hope you enjoy, and it may please you to know that it was those conversation in MDWvsPN that got me to write this :pinkiehappy:

Why yes, yes you may. Probably have another couple up sometime tomorrow.

Thank you sir, this was partially inspired by the works you've done on Romance and Rainbooms :)
Some of the chapters I really want to write is Scootaloo coming to accept Twilight as her other mom, and her accepting Rainbow Dash as more than just a idol/big sister figure. It's obvious that Scootaloo could easily accept Rainbow Dash as family, but accepting her as a parent? A figure of authority? I could see all kinds of issues cropping up. Anywho, can't wait to see what you come up with :rainbowwild:

Well, I can't take credit for the prompts themselves, only with what I've done with them, but thanks :twilightblush:

You know, I read that on my phone, and I actually felt a little sad at the first part.

You got me good sir, have a Spike! :moustache:

I'll be continuing until I think I've played out all the ideas for this story, which won't be for a long while I assure you. And I did make it into a story, it's what you're reading :pinkiehappy:

As always, thanks again to everyone for commenting!

Best of luck with those chapters, While in my fic I'm only thinking about those problems right now, just the thought is kicking my ass. I hope to see what you do with it.

I now officially love you.

Very well done. VERY. WELL. DONE.

~Skeeter The Lurker


I kid, I kid. Thanks though, glad to know you liked it, especially since it was your prompt! :pinkiehappy:

well played, sir, well played.
Just read thirty thousand words of Twidash goodness (god damn that was a,long fic... huh... it's one in the morning....) and then I refresh fimfic to see this short tid bit of Scootadoption goodness. There is no way I can repay you for this. Now then, I'm gonna go to bed before I fall asleep on my keyboard (which I have done before, and I do not want to do again)

Good chap, can't wait to see what more prompts bring, I like how you played Scootaloo being angry, very realistic.

This is not to say anything negative at all about this adorable fic, but I would really love to see a story where all or some of the mane 6 were to adopt and raise Scootaloo or any other orphan together, without shipping involved.

Wait hold on i think i just read that whole chapter wrong because you know there's no such thing as a happy Scootaloo, but what i read was clearly a Happy Scootaloo fic:rainbowhuh: something must be wrong or you just became my favorite author of ALL TIME :pinkiehappy:. yup you just became my favorite author of all time keep up the good work!

Now Come the not fun part being adopted by your hero. Being Grounded by your Hero/now parent

I think Scoots is going to learn being the legal daughter of Celestia's student/sister of a ruler of the Crystal Empire/Princess in training has certain advantages.

To be honest I'm quite happy to see a fic with the orphanage not making Scoots' life hell and forcing her to do demeaning jobs, biding her wings, or making her eat dirt. One can only take so much of that before plotting to send the Guard in to clean it up. I'm still quite happy to see you bucking off a lot of the cliches when it comes to this, good job. Perhaps despite me not liking TwiDash I should keep an eye on this, you know.... for Scootaloo's sake.

You would be surprised

If one of the prompts is the three of them fighting crime as Mare-Do-Well, Professor Nightshade, and the Chicken, I will be a very happy person.

The things you speak of... how could anyone do that to poor Scoots? :raritycry: In any case, I believe a child having to survive on their own would be tragic enough, no need to make her life a complete living heck. Good to know more people will be keeping an eye out for Scootaloo though, she needs love.

Scoots will probably learn many things, including the downsides that come with being the daughter of two (for all intents and purposes) pony celebrities.

There will definitely be an adjustment period, for all ponies involved. It's part of what happens when a family changes, especially when adding or losing a member.

:twilightblush: Glad you liked it! But c'mon, look at that face ->:scootangel: How could I be mean to that?

I understand where you're coming from. The closest thing I can think of (that I've read at least) to what you're looking for is My Little Mommies. There hasn't been any shipping involved (or if there has, I've completely missed it), but a magical mirror creates three cute little fillies for Pinkie Pie/Fluttershy, Rarity/Applejack, and Twilight/Rainbow Dash to take care of. Also, I have recently found out that there is a whole group dedicated to Scootafamily, so you might find something there!

Thank you kindly good sir! I figured that given part of the prompt (Scootaloo not knowing who was adopting her), that this would be the most likely outcome. Scootaloo just doesn't seem like the type to go quietly :pinkiehappy:

Probably not going to happen, though I did think of having them dress up like that if there is ever a halloween/costume prompt. Have Twilight start to go crazy as the night goes on and random mares keep hitting on Dash, meanwhile, Scoots finds herself being chased around town by a magic-multi-arm bearing Lyra, who wants the last snickers bar that Scoots got.

Of course, if any of the prompts does ask for some crime fighting, I could break off from the main universe, show the MDWvPN universe where Scoots is taken in as Rainbow Dash's young ward :rainbowlaugh:

:derpyderp1::derpyderp2: Sometimes I can't help but worry about what goes on in my mind.


I love My Little Mommies, and it may just be confirmation bias, but I think that there might have been some twidash ship teases in the recent chapters.

Perhaps. Right now I'm viewing it as Twilight being there for Rainbow as friends with a shared responsibility, mainly because I don't want to imagine Twidash in every fic I read. I don't think I could take the heartbreak


I can see not wanting every fic to be shipping, and with the Twidash contest that just occurred, its not like we are short on Twidash anyways. Speaking of, I'm rooting for you to win.

I NEED MORE. :pinkiehappy:


Thanks MLM is actually one of my favorite stories right now.
There are also others that come close like Nyx fics and the beginning of this one Naruto fic where they raise him since he was six.

And not that I have a big problem with shipping, but I find that when it is a major focus it distracts me from the rest of the story. Especially mane 6 slashfic.

FUCK YEAH :heart::heart::heart::heart: I can't believe I couldn't find this :D You win my soul and my eternal gratitude. :heart::heart: Two of my favorite things ever are in one story. Paring and Scootaloo....


You wrote this in thirty minutes?

Not bad, not bad at all

Oh my Celestia this is so adorable. I wish more time was taken to linger on the emotions, but this is cute.

2604725 i don't know man everyone else seems to do it and it just makes me so sad:pinkiesad2: but not this story this story put a smile on my face:pinkiehappy:

OK, this one gave me a tear in the eye.

2600823 Nobody gives him the love he deserves. :C

Heheh, thanks.

I don't think I have it in me to be mean to Scoots. So Scootalove all around! :pinkiehappy:

Well, I write each chapter in 30 minutes yes. And yeah, I've gotten that a lot (about wishing the chapters were longer or more focused). Hopefully I'll get better and faster, and the chapters will be even more enjoyable!

That's exactly how I felt when I started to see some TwiDash Scootadopt popping up! Seriously, I need more! You hear that authors? GIMME MOAR :flutterrage:

There should be another chapter or two up today, depending on how much free time I have.

Thanks, I'm going to need all the luck I can get, there are a lot of good entries MDWvPN is contending with. Just wish the judging was over already, the anticipation is driving me crazy :pinkiecrazy:

Also, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who's read, commented, faved, or thumbed up this fic. I just saw it made the featured box, which makes my very first story to do so. You guys rock so much! Thanks everyone.

Oh god yes, Scootalove!:pinkiehappy: Really great writing, can't wait for more.:yay:

Twilight tapped her marefriend on the shoulder

That's an awkward way of establishing their relationship in the first chapter...
