NOTE: We've actually taken this story's concept and given it a massive makeover. Check it out here!


Two worlds. Two friendships.

However, sometimes it takes another Rainbow Dash to say what one can't.


Now with a dramatic audio reading by Goombasa! Thanks, dood! :D

Amazing work as always!

You guys I hate blushing thank you :)

Rapid and pleasant. An interesting melding of two different worlds. Certainly worth the time to read it.

3262934
Thanks! :pinkiesmile:

3262981
...you know when you spell it all out like that it almost sounds a little weird and oh cadance what's wrong with me :twilightblush: Thank you!

3263025
Aww, thanks. :heart:
Though wow that was fast. Tell me you at least read it first. :raritywink:

3263091
That was me reading it with a gap in the middle while I had to go do something else.
I'm fast. :rainbowdetermined2:

Awesome story. I thoughly enjoyed it!:twilightsmile:

3262934
When can I expect the next chapter of The Winds of Change? XD XD XD

3262981 I have to admit that if it wasn't for you I would never have given this fic the time of day for it having not only humans, but EQG. And I would've been missing out on a heart meltingly great fic.

3262899

You have made the only Human fic that I can say I irrevocably love. You have great characterization, wonderfully written dialog, and it's feel hitting as well as sweet at the same time. Thank you for writing this fic.

3263426

Thanks a lot! I'm really glad you enjoyed it (especially when you didn't expect to)!

And yes, I'm quite aware that I'm handicapping myself (in terms of "popularity") by using EQG, but I do so love building on that universe... erm, such as it is. S'alright though -- I'm having fun and I just look at it as training with weighted clothes. :raritywink:

Hmm...I'm not a big fan of TwiDash[more like neutral], but I love the basic premise of the story and how it was written. Great story, Bookish!

That was perfect. Loved it.

Mein Gott! A capital-class shipfic! Bookie, you maniac! What have you unleashed?!

I took a look at this fic. The picture said EQG. I almost turned right around right then. But it's TwiDash, which has recently become one of my fave ships. So I gave it a chance.
And...after reading this, it almost makes me want to give the movie another shot, damn you. This is that good.

Two worlds. Two friendships.

For some reason... I kept expecting this to happen.

Regardless, a very nice read. I do enjoy stories like this where the shipping is just left off an implied. Well done.

very well done.

This fic was cool. It really fit the characters. But what got me was the end. I was like:scontent-b-dfw.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/150980_1421510648072116_660957878_n.jpg

But other than that, to my favorites this goes!:pinkiehappy:

I don't know I don't KNOW!

I swear I was guarding the harbor one second, and then the next this damned thing was in the feature box!

:raritydespair:

3264413
DASHCEPTION. It's the new craze. :pinkiehappy:

:rainbowlaugh:
You went exactly where I wanted you to.

3264137
Thank you. :)
(DAMN STRAIGHT, SIMON :heart:)

3263906
Thanks! And now you can be like me, constantly rewatching the movie while angsting about what could have been. :rainbowlaugh:

Once again, a story well worth reading. And once again, I want to know what happens next. :twilightsheepish: Why do you always cut these things short?

I'm a guy who likes long stories, and the buildup with human/Dash wasn't quite a long as I would've liked to see it, still, it did it's job well. The only thing that kind of fell by the way side was that human/Dash didn't mention Flash like her pony counterpart did. (Mind you, I've not seen the movie so it could be okay) All in all though. I liked it. And I wish there was more.

3264278 3264198 3263926 3263726 3263665 3263309

Thanks all! I'm glad you enjoyed it! (Especially you romance specialists I see out there amongst the names. :raritywink:)

3264626

Thanks, and all good questions/thoughts! Here's some answers.

- Because when I don't cut things short, Unison and Polaris happen. :raritydespair: I'm trying a new "strike while the iron's hot" method of writing -- basically forcing myself to finish an idea when I have it, no matter the cost. 'Cause I now have three years of knowing what happens when I procrastinate, and it seems I do a bit better when my stories are capsules instead of epics.

- Flash is kind of a non-entity when he isn't onscreen, and he's not onscreen much. When the movie isn't taking time out to show us Twilight going googly over him, he's mentioned once as Sunset Shimmer's ex-boyfriend and that's about it. So there was no compelling reason for Human!Dash to mention him.

- Finally, I had to do quite a bit of time finagling to make this story even work. In Equestria Girls there's a very tiny little scene break between when the girls choose their outfits for the Fall Formal and when they pull up to the dance in their limo. This story literally exists inside of a single jump-cut, and only because I'm squeezing the events of the movie together a bit (the movie takes place over the course of three days, and Human!Rainbow met her on Day Two.) Short of being Sorceress Ultimecia, this was all the buildup I could manage. :rainbowlaugh:

3264995

-Speaking of Unison and Polaris, will you continue with them when you feel like you can?

-I dislike the entire idea of Flash Sentry, so I'm not complaining, I just thought that since Pony/Dash had a comment about him, maybe Human/Dash might do the same.

-Well for what it's worth, I think it was good. Now, jump back in there and make Dash have to contend with Dash for Twilight's affections. (Strange I know. :twilightsheepish:)

I've been going back and exploring your work after stumbling over this, my normal method of finding things on the site, and I must as I'm loving your work. These two short really do make me like EG more than I did before.

3265014

...contend?

That just sounds all sorts of counterproductive.

:scootangel:

3265014
I'm currently forcing myself to finish Polaris even though I don't find it fun. Meanwhile I love Unison, i just keep forgetting that I want to finish it. So, uh... yes to both? ^^;

3265024

Glad to hear it -- and thanks for the watch! :heart:

3265043

Ohhh, two Dashies for Twilight? I am interested~ :rainbowkiss: :twilightblush: :rainbowdetermined2:

Also, Yay. I loved the first chapters of Polaris, though the later ones are a little...Let's say that I can notice your heart really isn't in it anymore. Unison has really blown me away, so I'll just go with... more please.

I've got the stupidest grin on my face right now.

What do you even CALL this ship? Rainbow TwiDash? XD

Loved this fic! :twilightsmile: Kept to the characters pretty well, and I could see it happening in the show/movie.

I highly enjoyed both of your EQG one-shots and I would love to see more of these crossed world interactions.

From the two stories that I read from you, I have to say that you have a really smooth writing style, keeping the pacing nice and steady. One of my biggest pet-peeves with fan-fic writers though are OOC characters, but so far I didn't see that in either of those fics. You seem to really flesh out your characters in your own way while keeping it as close to show characterization as possible. :scootangel:

Anyways, I'm definitely going to read your other stories while keeping an eye on you. :raritywink:

Like, all the D'AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. All of it. :yay:

*sighs long and low*

It has been some time since I've stumbled upon a satisfying oneshot. Superb. Wonderful and straightforward with perfect pacing. Somehow, I didn't skim a single sentence, as everything had meaning; the setting, the back-stories, the character development. Not only is it palpable for readers as a whole (at least, it BETTER be) but it was actually believable. The 'human' RD's backstory was my absolute favorite part. So crisp, and real, like I've known her for years. It's a mark of true talent to make readers feel that, and you've got it.

I wasn't even bothered that 'human' RD up and kissed a girl she'd only met the day before. Despite this common 'romance trope' it just... worked. But in the immortal words of Super Kami Guru, "That slut...!"

Usually, when I read stories after a good nights rest, I can spot writing errors like a boss. From inconsistencies, to faulty plot-devices... I found only nitpicks. And I shall list them now.

"...I got to learn long ago the value of sharing what moments you can with the people you want to be close to you.

Run-on sentence.

"Elevators." said Rainbow? "You got 'em?"

Misplaced question mark.

Rainbow indeed had had trouble getting to sleep before. Loops always helped.

Wording is awkward.

Fix them.images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120330201142/villains/images/b/b2/Angry_jappleack_by_avaston-d4oecat.png Now...

All in all, your writing is a wonder to behold, and I'm ashamed for not reading more of your work. A mistake easily corrected. Thanks for the memories Delight, they shall be cherished.

Craine...

OH! One more thing: As I recall, the 'Wonderbolts in Equestria Girls were called the 'Wondercolts'. If I'm not mistaken.

This is the first Equestria Girls fic I've actually like - your version of EQG's Rainbow Dash is fantastic. I've been meaning to watch it for a while now, but never got round to it; maybe I should...

I love romance like this. :heart:

3265119
Your avatar is a rather angry Vinyl.... I don't know if that's a grin...

3265510 no the students called themselves canterlot wondercolts

3265510
No, that's not a run-on sentence. Everything that follows the word "value" forms a perfectly cromulent prepositional phrase.
And Bookish, when you change that question mark into a period, make sure you change the period that directly follows the word "elevators" into a comma.

3265797
What this dude said.

Don't normally read Twidash, but in this case I'll make an exception.

I love this, especially since one of my main complaints about the movie was that Dash bearly had any screentime compared to the other five I also like the way you gave Dash her love flying in this universe to match what she has in the normal Equestria-verse. I also liked the utter calmness and natural feeling of the story.

In other words, you did an excellent job there.

Damn. This was... Yeah.
Just as good as the story where Rainbow Dash sends prank love letters to Twilight.

Would you stop making so many new fics!? How do you expect me to ever get through your bibliography :trollestia:


P.S. :rainbowdetermined2: +:twilightsmile: = :heart:

I don't normally do this, I swear. You'll have to excuse me.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

This was the first EG story I've read because I thought the concept sounded really interesting, and it was indeed an enjoyable read.

(*wakes up*)

(*is warmed by response*)

(*scans replies, sees downvotes littered about for completely innocuous comments*)

3265100

No clue if I'd ever try, though -- as someone's who really into doppelganger stories, the pronouns are a killer. :twilightblush:

And wow, that obvious, huh? :ajsleepy: I've often thought of cancelling it, or at least taking a wrecking ball to it and rebuilding from scratch, even though the ending's already half-written. I like the story itself, but the higher in concept I go, the more trouble I have -- plus there's a lot of backstage stuff that weighs on me with that fic. Not sure what to do yet but I'll think of something.

3265119
Stupid grins are the best grins. Have to agree with that one guy about your avatar though. :pinkiehappy:

TwiDoubleDash. (That was my original code name for this story. :twilightsmile:)
