How does this have two views and three lik- oh wait, the author liked it.

This is so unbelievably adorable! :rainbowkiss::scootangel:


Of course you'd post THAT.

Daww... I love stories like this. Scootalove is one my favorite things.


I assure you, I don't upvote my own stories.


Oh the horror!!!



Then why did it say it had two views and three likes? It's probably me just seeing things, like usual.

site was lagging



more importantly, why the hell would anyone pair anyone with soarin for any reason other than RAPE?


I don't think views update instantly.


I don't. It just feels like I'm cheating the rating system if I do. *shrug*


*scratches head*


I am implying quite heavily that lesbian pairings are the only good FIM pairings :rainbowkiss:

Short and sweet. Nothing to complain about. Have a like. :pinkiehappy:

2901423 Dude, what the hell!?


Careful, or I shall clip your tiny little wings you monstrous parasprite you.


wat? gavalanche is awesome

The feels man! The feels! :raritydespair::raritycry::fluttershbad::fluttercry:

That was adorable. :pinkiesad2: Very well done, thank you for writing that.

An excellent, heartfelt one-shot! :heart: Well done!! :pinkiehappy:


So I read a few comments before reading, and got the gist that it would be heartwarming.

Boy, simply calling it 'heartwarming' or 'feels worthy' doesnt entirely do it justice. This was adorable, and very well executed. My hat off to you, author.

And from the title, one expects COMEDY, not what you gave out. I'm glad to have been mistaken on first glance.

For how good this story is; you really did your self a disservice with the name. That aside, since it is your choice to name it that, this story is wonderful. I wish it would have kept going later on so we could see Scootaloo's reaction, but over all it was well paced and just a great story.

Keep up the great work and stay awesome. :rainbowdetermined2:


Hmm. I see your point about the name. The name hit me before i started writing and i never thought about it a second time.

I think the name was clever. It drew me in, but then seeing what the story ACTUALLY was, I found myself more interested. Juxtaposition of genres, if you will?


While it is a nice saying, "never judge a book by its cover" is rarely followed. Its just my personal goal to read every (( non-dark )) Scootaloo Rainbow Dash story in FIM. So I had it read it, but I was not looking foreword to it because of the name. I am happy to say it was a nice surprise. The story was fantastically written with detail and feeling put into it. I'm sure you can come up with a slightly better name then using a truly old and overused joke. (( I hate that chicken thing. ))

Stay awesome! :rainbowdetermined2:

~Lightfox Lowell

Liquid pride has been shed.

Why I have the impression that the general consensus in the fandom is that RD would be a good mother for Scootaloo?:rainbowdetermined2::scootangel:

Thumbs up and faved.

This is, honestly, pretty much perfect.

BAM! Right in the feels!

Love it.

That has got to be one of the cutest cover pictures I've ever seen! :rainbowkiss:

Other than making the chicken joke this was amazing. I love scootalove

Finding the cover picture was the entire reason I wrote the story.

***WARNING*** D'awness Alert! OVER 9000!!! Great Job!:rainbowkiss:


There should be a heartwarming tag for stories like this.

musn't cry... mainly because i am sitting in a huddle house that is packed and I don't want people freaking out that a 24 year old just busted out crying for no apparent reason.

I found the picture on deviantART before you wrote this, and after reading this i gotta say you nailed it, this is awesome!

Aww, this one's just as cute as Fluttershy sleeping in a basket full of bunnies.

This was pretty dang awesome! I do wish it were longer though. Oh well still a fantastic story! :twilightsmile:


The views are not updated in real time.

Also, why is this not featured yet.

Dawwwwwwwww.... you must continue!:rainbowdetermined2::rainbowdetermined2::scootangel:

Well, that was nice and heartwarming. You don't see a lot of good normal stories like this.

This story is successfully sweet without being over the top. Nice work.

I love seeing Rainbow's softer side, especially with Scootaloo. =)
