There are a few Jakes on this website. I'm the ginger one.


Bon Bon is your average hard working mare, running her own candy stall in Ponyville. But when Princess Celestia tries one of her candies, she gives Bon Bon the offer of a lifetime: the opportunity to become the Royal Confectioner. With Twilight by her side, how will Bon Bon cope with the changes ahead?

Holy fuck, I've never seen this before. Prepare to be read. (You better not disappoint :trixieshiftright:)

Wow, this is the first time i see this ship, i am so reading this.

Well... that is certainly an usual paring.

I'm impressed. I expect great things to come.

Liked and favourited.

wow this was on the front page

Alrighty, a new fic on the first page? Wow, that was fast. Anyway, I like where this is going. The cake thing though... why do i have a feeling Princess Celestia is Asexual in this? :trollestia:

Hmmm... Romance Tag, Twilight and Bon Bon as the main characters... wait, what? Interest piqued.

Petty issue: Bon Bon buys Zap Apple Jam from Granny Smith and the Apple Family. What right do the Apples have to tell her that if she turns the jam that she bought into candy and sells it, that they deserve a 50/50 share of the money she makes selling the candy? That's totally double dipping, and the Element of Honesty should be ashamed of herself.

Unless I'm misreading and Bon Bon gets "free" Zap Apple Jam to make her confections with, and splits the profits afterward, which is still not exactly ethical, IMHO.


They made a deal, pretty much. Bon Bon gets free zap apple jam, in return for splitting the profits she makes from it. Bare in mind that if she didn't split it with the Apples, they would lose out on a lot of profit themselves.

I just figured that Applejack would be the type to stubbornly negotiate an equal share, so that everypony wins.

I'm sorry...Bon-Bon/Twilight ship, dood? (and Twilicorn no less, dood)


Let's keep this idea going, dood.


Ah, so she didn't buy it from them first. That makes a huge difference - more of a "Bon Bon can't negotiate" issue. :derpytongue2:

This is a ship that definitely needs to sail.

I look forward to seeing where this is going. I haven't seen a story quite like this, so I'm hoping it will be good, but it is off to a good start.

This is arguably one of the best stories i have read so far! :pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:

Nice job on featured. Again. Ignore my jealousy, old chap. :applecry:

Wow ! This is awesome imaginig the story , especially if you're a sweet tooth :) :pinkiehappy:

I have never sen nerd Bon before... but I like it! Faved and watching!:twilightsmile:

Is this the first BonLight shipping ever? :rainbowderp:

Ah well, reading!

Bonbon is kinda a jerk to Lyra. And she prefers to be a recluse and play with her miniatures. How is she going to make more of the special candy without any more zap apples from Applejack?

There were a couple of mistakes in your story but I was able to figure out what was meant to be said. No big deal. Interesting premise and love the character interactions.

Could it...could it be? The rare TwiBon?:pinkiegasp:

I like where this is going. Bon Bon gets far too few chances to shine as the star of her own fic And TwiBon is an interesting new angle.

I'll give it a go based on the pure uniqueness of it. Bon Bon best check out the Royal kitchens first. Those places are usually populated by high strung primadonnas.

Does raise an interesting point. If she is out of zap apple candy, will she able to impress the sisters with her other offerings?

Okay... Twilight x Bonbon.

Well, Twilight x Derpy worked out well enough... And if Princess Sparkle's School for Eccentric Unicorns ever bloody updates, we'll have Twilight x Lyra... So why the hell not?

I'm loving this so far. I liked the little "face-this-way" you did when Bon Bon was worrying about what Lyra thought, only for her to stop and go, "No, this isn't about Lyra, this is about what I want," which is why this fic exists in the first place. Nice job, mate, keep up the good work! :twilightsmile:

Right? I swear, MissingNo. is more common that TwiBon... or is it Bonkle? I'm not sure, but I think TwiBon sounds better. :rainbowlaugh:

Nerdy Bon-Bon and Bon-Bon and Twilight's nerdgasming. I love it already. :twilightsmile:
Please continue this story and I hope to see updates in the future.

2636494 I would propose that Bonkle be the classification for Twilight/Bon Bon clopfics.

Huh. That's interesting: Twilight X Bon Bon. A rarely, if never seen, shipping.

Update soon!

Interesting story. Needs a brutal and savage editing.

Awwwww yeah! I was not disappoint! It could definitely use another couple of run-throughs to fix a few spelling/grammatical mistakes spotted here and there, but, otherwise, it's perfect so far. Keep it up and get to that shipping soon!

This is certainly different. I'll keep an eye on this. :pinkiesmile:

2634998 It fits with the sort of deal the Flim Flam brothers were proposing -- maybe that's how economics works in Equestria. It's not like they paid Applejack for all the apples (and appletrees, and rocks, and dirt) they used in their cider.

Welp, I'm hooked. I may not have had much reading experience with Bon Bon, but it is safe to say this story is going to help develop my sweet tooth for her. :raritywink: Plus, that is just such a unique shipping, I have to read this. You had my curiosity by reaching the featured box, but earned my attention with how well written this is, and again, the ponies you are setting sail on this boat. :twilightsmile:

Looking forward to the next installment! :pinkiehappy:

I shall not be bested in the arena of candy puns! I challenge you one on one to the ultimate candy related pun duel, and if I fail I'll accept my just desserts. That was a good pun, was it not? You could even say it was a Good Good pun. I'm as sure as sugar that I'll win with puns like these, so have at me! Then again, I might just be sugar-coating my own ability.

On a less pun-duel related note, this is the first time I've ever seen this pair, and you've done a good job of setting up the story so far. Have a fave, a dismembered thumb pointed upward, and a time traveling bottle with yeast in it.

2639158 sir you will be caked in defeat, as i marzahand you you're loss, but be aware that i shall herd you and all your peeps into liquorice whippin. so i guess you could call me the jolly rancher. you'll find that i am full of twix and will hand you a graceful whatchamacallit? oh yeah a red hot warhead of confectionery pain. so take that, you didn't have a snowballs chance in Tarturus of besting me. :yay::yay::yay::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

I look forward to more of this sweet fanfic.

Well well well, I see the contest has been sweetened. When I win, I'll get to nestle on a nice warm bed, while your eyes are glazing over as I lecture you on Puncraft. I tried to start of the fight friendly, but you went and spiced up the competition. Compared to my puns, all of yours are just milk duds. I've double frosted my sentences with wit, and I've only just started. I didn't expect you to rise to the challenge, but I guess we all knead to taste the cake of defeat every one and awhile

2639695 oh it seems i can't help bur snicker at your lack of originality. So i guess i'll make you taste my rainbow of baberuthless puns. So watch out or i'll break off a new flavor of joke on you. it seems that all your puns are a dime a dozen while mine are 100grand. so just give in cause i have an iron grip, and you're just a butterfingers. and once i'm done we'll all celebrate for i will have successfully taken the cake for the best pun lord to date.

How about we move this to PMs, I don't feel like filling up this wall with convoluted and contrived confection comments aimed at making the opponent craven. I'm cravin' to knock you out with more puns, but I don't want to waste space.

2639791 But they're so much fun to read. It'd be a shame if no one else can savor the flavor of your candy coated crackerjacks.

...........Words cannot describe. :applejackconfused: i'll come back when i know how i feel 'bout this.

I don't enjoy shipping. But I do enjoy good writing.:pinkiehappy:

This is gonna be TwiBon isn't it:ajbemused:

If it goes on long enough and well enough, and if Sin gives permission, I'm considering just posting all of it on my user blog, I just don't want to annoy anyone who came to the comment section looking for something other than a wall of candy jokes.
