And so your journey begins :ajsmug:

Following with interest.

I like it thus far!
Looking forward to more!

Well, that's going to make their relationship awkward. :twilightoops:

Nope. In my book, that's lying to her.

i don't care who donates the genetic material, your parents are the ones who raise you.

Love all of these, very nice work.

Thank you. I'm never quite sure with these, as they're always kind of a shot in the dark. Glad it was enjoyable for you. :twilightsmile:

4941754
Glad to hear it! I enjoyed writing them, and they're good practice.

Short and to the point. I've noticed ultra-short stories like this are remarkably hard to write well, but this one's quite good. :twilightsmile:

Very meta. Twilight's neurotic subconscious approves. :trollestia:

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Clearly I need to write more stuff when I'm supposed to be asleep.

... I liked this

T'was neat.

Although, Word of God is that Celestia was Spike's mother figure. She raised him while Twilight grew up.

Still. Neat.

5155123
I actually tend to agree with this idea; I think that Twilight and Spike's relationship is somewhat complicated, as Twilight is Spike's guardian at the moment, and does do some motherly things in regards to him, but also oftentimes acts more like a big sister. I rather like the idea of Celestia being Spike's mother in some sense, though (and admittedly I am fond of the idea that Celestia is also something of a secondary mother figure to Twilight as well).

I think The Descendant put Twilight and Spike's relationship best when he said "Whatever they are to each other, he's her little one, and she's his big one."

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

It's really up to an individual writer/reader how they interpret Spike and Twilight (like I do, as I write them as mother/son) :twilightsmile:

Dammit, why can't I upvote this twice?

Well, this was adorable as heck. Though now I'm wondering what Applejack tastes like. :rainbowhuh:

Wait, does that sound right? :twilightoops:

I'm glad you enjoyed the story. It was what earned me my very first followers; good to see it still holds up.

As for your question...

5200562
I think everyone expects that one. But I like that it is the cereal, just to confuse people.

Plus they probably don't have Apple Jacks in Equestria, so it would be terribly confusing. :raritywink:

Out of curiosity, did you take a look at any of the other stories in the collection? You might enjoy some of the other RariJack ones if you haven't looked at them already. Caught, Collaboration, Hug, and Miracle are lighter stories more in line with Candy; Mirrors and Wet are more serious.

5200591

I'd never heard of the cereal before now, so I'm assuming that they're just an American thing? (Or I'm living a terribly sheltered life.)

I haven't looked at any of the other stories yet, but I will go through each of them and comment. :pinkiesmile:

Woah, that's pretty dark. I was expecting something Dorian Grey-esque, but I guess this is worse.

This actually happened to me once. I couldn't think of another word to reach one-hundred. My teacher said it was fine, but I totally freaked out about the whole thing. :fluttershysad:

5200624
It is available in the US and Canada, but apparently not in the UK.

I hope you enjoy the stories!

The banter between the CMCs was adorable, and Pinkie Pie at the end ... :rainbowlaugh:

5200671
Pinkie Pie is sometimes my very favorite character to write; she has this wonderful sort of innocence to her, but at the same time is aware of all sorts of things that she doesn't really let on. She is usable for all sorts of wonderfully terrible jokes and gags, not to mention bad puns.

I love this 'cause I can almost hear the wheels turning in Applejack's mind as she tries to get Rarity to admit that she just wants to be around her as much as possible. :rainbowwild:

Oh, Granny Smith, you troll. Nice one. :moustache:

5200667

And I'm here at the end now.

Very sweet. I enjoyed my little trip through your short stories. :pinkiehappy:

5200686
I suspect Granny Smith and Pinkie Pie are why I enjoy the idea behind Shotgun Wedding so much. Well, that and Rarity and Applejack.

I really need to get around to revising the unfinished chapters of that thing so I can get it done. Reading Granny Smith being terrible is always a joy for me, and producing more of her being terrible is clearly the only solution.

5200677

You're right. She's a great multipurpose pony. :pinkiehappy:

5200690
I'm glad you enjoyed them! Always good to hear that they were worth your time.

I really should write them more often; I'm pretty erratic in my production.

Then again, I really should write in general more often... though I suppose I have written 2,000 words in the last couple hours.

5200696

Thing is, when I first got involved with the MLP fandom, I wasn't that much of a 'shipper ... until I discovered the Twilight/Celestia collab. After that, I got hooked on those stories. The creative interpretations of the prompts are sometimes breathaking to behold.

Anyway, if you want me to pick a favourite, I'd have to go with Wet. Just because I love the creeping sense of darkness you wove into it. :twilightsmile:

I know the feeling (when it comes to keeping an erratic writing schedule). I have a couple of things I should be doing, but I can't really do any sustained writing until my hand gets better. :fluttershysad:

5200705
Admittedly, I really should get involved in some of the other prompt collabs, but every time I look I don't feel terribly inspired.

It is kind of ironic, really; RariJack wasn't really my OTP when I joined the fandom at all, but for some reason I really just enjoy the pairing a lot, and I keep end up wanting more good RariJack stories, and keep coming up with ideas for them myself. Ironically, I'm not actually terribly fond of most RariJack stories; I suspect I re-read my own stories so much because I feel like I don't get what I want when I read the RariJack stories by others. Maybe that's why I end up writing so much RariJack as opposed to other ships; I can find good stories which feature the other ships, but for my favorite one, I have to write it myself so it is just so.

I'm glad you enjoyed Wet; it is probably my favorite short story that I've written, though Mirrors also holds a special place in my heart, mostly because of the ending.

If you liked my RariJack stuff, you might want to check out some of my other stories as well; Temptation is probably my best RariJack shipfic that I have both published and completed (and if you liked Wet, you will likely enjoy it as well), and while I think that Shotgun Wedding will likely end up even better, it is, alas, still incomplete as I mentioned previously (though I do have two more chapters "on the way", I haven't actually gotten them finished so...).

If you're itching for more short stories by me, Famous Last Words is a set of three short stories that I wrote for the Writeoff Association a while back, and The Legend of Falling Rocks, Buffalo Brave is a collection of three short stories written in the form of faux Native-American mythology. They're both rather different from what is in this collection, but you might enjoy them as well.

I actually noticed that you put up your own set of prompt collab short stories a few days ago; I was planning on going over and taking a look at them. Out of curiosity, which of your own prompt stories is your favorite?

5200719

I've been feeling that way lately, too. Plus, there are so many great stories there that I sometimes feel a bit ... inadequate. You should give the Twilight/Chrysalis one a shot someday, though. It can be literally crazy in there sometimes.

Applejack and Rarity, being my least favourite amongst the Mane Six (though I always feel the need to clarify that I don't dislike them, they just aren't my favourites), I don't write for them very often, and the only times I've done so have been because of prompts. I don't know if you've noticed it, but there is ONE Rari/Jack story in my collection, The Brat and the Farmer. I dunno if it'll be to your tastes, though. Depends on what it is that you're looking for, I guess.

Mirrors was good, too. As was Hug. As was, heck, all of them are really good!

I'll definitely be looking at more of your works.

As for my favourite ... oh. Either Qipao (Twi/Cel), Longing (Twi/Chr) or Role Reversal (Flu/Rai).

5200788
Yeah, I actually read The Brat and The Farmer just the other day; I wasn't overfond of it, I'm afraid. :fluttercry:

I think my favorite of your minifics thus far was Trail, but I'm only about halfway through.

Though my favorite story of yours is Her Final Flight.

5200816

What didn't you like about it, if you don't my asking? :twilightsmile:

I do like Daisies and Trail, and I keep meaning to write a continuation, but I'm always getting side-tracked. :facehoof:

5200825
I'll try to remember to answer that when I'm more awake; I tend not to give the best of feedback when I'm tired.
