Inspired by fanart from artist Banshee42ru. Set a few years after Season 2 (pending future edits), the story follows the relationship of Spike and Apple Bloom. Their young love takes a serious turn when she finds herself pregnant with a half-dragon, half-pony foal. How will their family and friends react, and what will this halfbreed child mean for them and Equestrian society as a whole?

NOTE: Updates and new chapters tend to take a rather long time, but unless I actually put it as 'On Hiatus' I actually am working on it. It's not abandoned, I just have a really slow writing process.
Also, a while back someone sent this to Equestria Daily without asking me. I appreciate the thought, but they work on a strike system and I really don't want to be locked out.

Hmm interesting, tracking. Looking forward to seeing where you go with this.

/drool love it, feels familiar to Heart of Pony but i do insist you continue.

Spike and applebloom? YES! I love SpikeXCutiemarkCrusader fics! :twilightsmile:

Love the picture series, and I'm liking this story too :pinkiesmile:

This is one of my favorite shipping pairs. It's also nice to see someone use one of Banshee42ru pics as the basis for a really good SpikeBloom fic. There's not much you can say about this. It's got a lot of detail, it's got character development, it's well written and it's easy to read. If I could give you a star rating I'd give you all 5 out of 5.

Here's a gif for your good job:

Peace Out.

Ouch! Did you not like mine?

378921 i didn't say that!:pinkiegasp: i meant like if any one knows any other spike and apple bloom fics

I kinda thought that's what you meant, and no offense taken. Still, be careful with your phrasing, especially around writers, we can be very sensitive to nuance. "any other good" would've been more clear, or just "any other" if you didn't happen to think this one was good. (It's okay, honest, I can take it. javascript:smilie(':twilightsheepish:');)

If there's something anypony doesn't like (or something specific they do like) I always welcome feedback. While I might not agree with or implement any suggested changes, I do like to know what people think.

Chapter 3 IS in the works, honest, but I'm having to rewrite a couple major scenes. I want to maintain quality throughout the entire series, and that just takes time. Thanks everypony!

I WANT to say two or three weeks at most. Unfortunately I'm really bad at accurately estimating these things, so please don't hold it against me if I miss that deadline (or get it posted much earlier.) The Muse is a fickle strumpet who likes to wander off right when I want her around and then visit me at 3 in the morning.

Truer words are rarely spoken.
On the note of comments. I really enjoy the Spike and CMC type fictions when they're not just Spike or CMC finds porn then random sex... I like ones like this where They've actually started developing a relationship. Oh and Apple Flambe sounds like a great name for the foal of this pairing.
So kudos my friend and I present to you one internet and this... Take it and rejoice!

YAY! first!!!

Really good job, looking forward to next chapter.

this is getting good keep writing

This is a really sweet story so far - lovin' it. :ajsmug::heart:

You've got a thumbs-up and track from me.

Sausem Awce! I really like your portrayal of Big Mac. The closest thing to My headcannon anyone has gotten in a while

Good guy Spike strikes again!

Awesome story.:moustache:

Wow, great job! I'm loving every part of this :pinkiehappy:
However, for some constructive criticism, indentation and paragraph spacing are magic :twilightsmile:
The tab and enter keys are your friends
Sorry, I'm kind of a grammer nerd :twilightsheepish:
Keep up the good work! :pinkiehappy:

Hey, fair enough! I actually do have those things on the word document in which I work on this, but they didn't transfer over when I copy/pasted it and I really just didn't feel up to going down and adding them manually. Still, if it's a distraction, I guess I'll just suck it up and fix it.

Glad you're enjoying!

Well, nopony really knew about the crossbreeding. "What We Know of Dragons" is like a real-life medieval bestiary: there's some truth but there's lots of just ridiculous stuff, like tigers carry around glass orbs and lions mate face-to-face.

Applejack's very practical, and she understands how important it is for a pony (especially a mare) to understand sex and its potential consequences. She heard a lot of rumors when she was in school and doesn't want AB to fall victim to them. "You can't get pregnant without a cutie mark" is one myth that never seems to get properly stomped out. It normally doesn't matter, since most ponies get their marks well before puberty, but the two developments are totally unrelated.

Already planning more characters next chapter!

Hey dude, if it's that much of an imposition, don't even worry about it. I'm just being dumb and the fact that indentation (or lack thereof) doesn't negatively impact the story at all! Thanks for listening though :twilightblush:
Looking forward to reading more! :pinkiehappy:

Did Applejack just suggest what I think she did? :derpyderp2:

Applejack and Mac were against them being together or even having a child.

Twilight is worried about both Applebloom and Spike.

I was almost shed manly tears cause no one seemed to care what Applebloom and Spike wanted and that is to have the baby and be together. I like that their relationship actually means something to each other. I love how you handled Spike's character and how he's a good guy and is willing to make things right.

I felt like this while reading this chapter.

Peace Out.

:twilightsmile: Damn, this is good. The writing is engaging and the plot keeps me wanting more. And I really do :heart:

Thank celestia someone does a spike story where a pony gets pergnet. so many people say dragons and poines cant but they can they even have a name. Anyways very good story i perfer spike and rarity but dont get me wrong this story you are writing its gold its... its really good.

Nothing wrong with preferring Spike and Rarity. Just think of this as an alternate dimension where things turned out differently. Glad you're enjoying!

I've always subscribed to the idea that dragons can crossbreed with darn near anything. In one discussion, my friend and I pondered that Spike might still be a little young for mating by dragon standards, but being around ponies so much has made his "developmental clock" synch up with theirs.

awsome story cant wait for the next chpter.

EVERYPONY. CROSSBREEDING BETWEEN AN EQUINE AND A DRAGON IS POSSIBLE!! it was proven in shrek :pinkiehappy:

love the story. i personally prefer spikexanycmc over spikexrarity. rarity is my least favorite pony :raritydespair:....well next to tixie :trixieshiftright: (sorry rarity and trixie fans)

hope you'll update it soon :ajsmug:

Glad you like!
Unfortunately, I'm not yet to the point where I can give any sort of decent estimate on when Chapter 4 will be ready. Progress is being made, though!

Also, the awesomely talented Rannva has made a couple drawings of scenes from the fic. Go check out her DeviantArt page, or follow these links:

great work! cant wait to read more... seriously I cant wait...I hate waiting...(whistling)....update yet? no?...okay...(more whistling) oh here I wait, for a update, oh how I hate, when I have to wait...(more more whistling)...that was a lie...I cant really whistle...I'm running out of things to mutter about...did you know crazy people don't think they're crazy? good thing too cause i think im crazy :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy: ....update yet?

468010

I hate waiting too, and I hate having to make you wait. ':fluttercry:';
But I'll do everything I can to make it worth the wait.

466890

well the chinese have a saying: don't be afraid of going slow. be afraid of stopping :moustache:
do not stop this magnificent story till it's finished :yay:

468381

No worries, I don't intend to!

A bit of backstory: The truth is, I have ambitions as an "actual" writer (published and all), but one of my big problems was discipline - I've always heard "write every day" but could never quite manage for more than a couple weeks at a time and have a hard time sticking to a single project.
Since I started this story back in mid-January, I think I've only had one or two days total when I didn't write or edit at least a little bit. I'm not sure exactly why this has worked so well, but it's been a great "training exercise" and I don't plan on losing this momentum.

469801

awesomesauce!! :rainbowlaugh: well keep it up!! and never give up i guess :trollestia:

Max

Oh god, this is definitely one of my favorites fics, ApplebloomXSpike is always so cool, i need moaaaaaaaaar. :raritydespair:

Tracking :heart:

498039
Much appreciated! I'm working on it every day!

I think that's quite none of your business! :rainbowwild:
Just kidding; it's a good question.

What I'm thinking right now is that there is sex-for-pleasure, but it works a little differently than for humans. It takes practice to get the normally involuntary responses going on command, and some ponies don't bother, but most couples figure something out in the interest of fun and bonding.

The herbal "fertility suppressants" mentioned at the end of Chaper 2 are something like 70% effective, and while they usually diminish sex drive they don't completely eliminate it (in most cases.) They're quite popular.

I've also considered that ponies may simply have a low fertility rate compared to humans and there's really quite a bit more unprotected sex than the number of foals would suggest. If the way they're drawn is anatomically accurate, the testicles may be internal or not descend except for sex, which might result in a much lower viable sperm count than one expects from a typical mammal. One wonders how such a thing might evolve, but plenty of Earth animals have apparently inconvenient features and succeed regardless.

Oh, they'll definitely make the best of it. There's all *kinds* of things Spike can do that a regular stallion can't. :yay: (or maybe :applecry: ? What's the most awkward pony smiley I could put there?)
Fortunately, their relationship is built on a bit more than that: they genuinely do have things in common and enjoy each others' company. Could be they'd have eventually married anyway.

God how much longer:applecry:
the withdrawl is kicking in:pinkiesick:
i need a hit man:pinkiesad2:

536068
Sorry bro! Cookin' the grade-A s:yay: takes time, and every batch is a little different, so I still can't say for sure when it'll be ready. I don't wanna send you on a bad trip with some half-cooked garbage. It's being worked on every day, though!

so around th end of the month
that a good estimate

537023
We can go with that, as long as it's understood that it's just a (very, very loose) estimate.
I hate being so ambivalent, I really do, but my life is pretty unpredictable right now, and as I've said before the Muse and I have a very dysfunctional relationship.
I'm really happy with how well-received this has been, and I'll do my best to not disappoint you. ':scootangel:'

i understand that is al oose estimate
i dont know what ampivalent means
and
you can only disipointe me if you cancel it
like father says dont be afraid of slowing down be afraid of stoping>>537978

This is such a good story! So much emotion!!! I NEED MOAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :flutterrage:
