"I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be there when it happens." —Woody Allen


A little piece of fluff about how two friends started dating, thanks to an ill-timed slip of the tongue.

This was adorable! Just simply adorable!

cool story now make a sequel.

Unless I missed the memo, a definite possibility, I really like the way everyone has gone with the fruit bat type. Rather than a carnivore.

OK so now you have to write up the date these two go on.
I really can't tell you how very cool this story was.
Thanks for writing it.

I like bat ponies now. All I'm gonna say

SEQUEL NAO K THNX BAI :twilightsmile:

A little short, but just enough build up and plenty of heartwarming.

*clapclapclapclap* well done, I must say.

Yes, bat ponies rules.
And that's just it.

p.s. thought, I've got to admit, this fic feels a little too suddendly interrupted....


.......Yes, just yes!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:
And that ending; lol:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

3442285 Nice try... not today...

That was cute. plus that part with the head guard lol

Troll captains are best captains

<3 bat ponies are best ponies. I should know, I am one! Great story, and thank you for portraying us a being related to fruit bats, which we are related to, not vampire bats, which we aren't related to.

There's only ONE small...problem I see with this fic.
.....it seems to be marked complete. That's a mistake........right? :pinkiesad2:
Hehe. Anyhow. Well done. (the upvotes show it! 165 to 0. Well deserved!

So awesome! You should definitely write more. :twilightsmile:

The first fimfic I ever read, the one that got me into reading stories on this site many months ago, had a batty mare and stern stallion like this pair, interactions similarly adorable. I don't think it was ever finished, but the bat-pony memories are fresh. :twilightsmile:

Dear Readers,

If you'd all just take a moment to read this little diddy, it would mean ever so much to me. Thank you.


Author Interviewer

I rather wish you hadn't named both your character "Bright *". It got confusing in spots.

You love bat-ponies? I LOVE BAT PONIES?!?! You are absolutely correct, they are totally best pony race!!! Their cute little bat wings, and cat-pupils, ughhhh, everything about them is just so cute and awesome!!! :rainbowkiss: As you can probably tell from my username, I'm probably just a little biased, but I don't care, bat ponies are undeniably awesome and I wish they'd return to the show in a far more prominent role. This was a wonderful bat pony fanfic, and I commend you on the job well done. :twilightsmile:

I would really love to see more of this

226 Ponies have voted up/down on this story and I need to stone one of them. I would also like to point out one flaw in the story: needs to be longer. If there is any type of story that should never be a one shot it's a romance.:ajbemused:

Nice little story. Bat ponies are truly the best kind of pony.

I love bat ponies, and especially romance involving them (thanks Comet Burst!), so... where's the full story sequel?

Well, what do you know.
On FimFiction, at least, your story is more popular than the one that got first place in EQD's bat pony write-off. Just thought that was an interesting piece of data :twilightsheepish:

Comet Burst is indeed an amazing author, and when I saw the cover art I thought this was a spin off or side story for The Golden Armor.

Good job on the story! I don't really know what to say, my mind is still processing the story. Then again, the highest compliment I could give is one without words.

more adorable than Fluttershy

But what about Flutterbat?

...Now I feel a great need to write batponies. I wonder if I can fit them into my story... once I get myself working on it again.

This was short and sweet, definitely a fan. I'll be checking out that other batpony story of yours, and perhaps The Golden Armor, too.


A beautiful story :pinkiehappy:

Captain Burst and Captain Beats huh? :rainbowlaugh:
Suddenly every guard in that universe will be dating another guard!

Also really well done fic :twilightsmile:

I do rather like bat-ponies… but you have to wander... if they had kids, would they be pegisi, bat-ponies, or something in between

Have you seen the episode "Bats!" yet? you'll love it!

Captain Burst and captain Beats, gotta love em

3753073 THIS. THIS.

Well, if not, I'll still be watching you Not Real Pony for more of this batpony goodness in future. This story must be one of my favourite one-shots for just being adorable and making me love all the characters in such a short span.

(*Adds Bright Eyes for stories to look out for in future. Also, Bright Eyes traits are now head-canon for all Batponies.*)

Batponies? Shipping? Smells like fanfic! How could anypony possibly like this kind of...

Wait... hmmm... wow. I like this. I actually do. What's wrong with me? I hate shipping!

... but this was between two Ocs, not canon characters. And it was actually pretty cute. The long friendship blossoming into something more is really very sweet.

But... it has batponies! Everypony makes them all creepy and angsty! Nopony does good, likable batponies!

...Oh. Wait a minute. This is a somewhat likable batpony. In fact, she's a very likable batpony. She pulls off the cockiness without seeming unrealistic, and is actually cute. A cute, lovable batpony with a realistic personality. I like her. I like this whole story.

Wow. You, NotARealPonydotcom, are a miracle worker. You have officially made a shipping fanfic and a batpony OC whom I, Dream Bolt, the stallion who normally hates shipping fanfics, absolutely love. And I should tell you, I am a total fanfic snob. I rarely comment on how I like a fanfic, and I even less commonly favorite them. But this one is certainly going into favorites.

Keep up the good work. I expect great things of you.

"What exactly made you so red in the face"

That pun! :pinkiehappy:

Finally I found someone else who believes bat ponies are best pony :3 also this fanfic was very well written,funny,cute and just more cute ^_^

Dang, I just read this and went to click the like button. Turns out I've read this before, though I guess i can give it a fave.:twilightblush: 555 likes!

Dear writer
thanks for this funny and sweet story. im also fan of the bat ponies so indo appreciate you pointinf other related fics :)

This was brilliant. Have you ever considered a sequel which actually shows us their date? And why is it that bat pony mares are always fun-loving daredevils, and pegasus stallions in the guard are always sticks in the mud (at least on the surface)?

Hee. One has to wonder how much of that she planned. She couldn't possibly have predicted him saying that :rainbowlaugh:

That was just plain cute.

pain in his wings intensified.

*pain intensifies*

3899341 Flutterbat is the justification for that statement.:raritywink:

Half reading threw this, I started to dislike this batt mare. She almousts killed the guy, made a joke out of it, but when he told her that she acts "Batty", then she got pissed off, spat on he's muzzle, and then he had to apologise her. This realy annoys me, with this female logic.

Male fucks up,
Female is sad/angry,
Male apologises.

Female fucks up,
Male is sad/angry,
Female gets sad/angry,
Male apologises.

The dumbest part of this, is that he actualy likes her after all of this. If she wanted him to date her, she could just asked him out, like she did, and he wouldn't had been forced to say yes, just to save the face. I don't get these kind of relationships. They are both idiots, and are a perfect match apearently.
