I'm an irritating fangirl who also writes. A lot of my stuff is sad. I am sometimes overly sex-positive, so if you are sex-negative, I might have called you an elitist taint jockey. Sorry about that.

T

Life isn't fair when you're a teenage pony. Your sister forces you to host a sleepover for your most hated enemy. Your father browbeats you into trying to 'make friends' with the bully that makes your life hell.

At least Diamond Tiara has Silver Spoon, for support. And Sweetie Belle has friends like Apple Bloom and Scootaloo. They bring support, both moral and alcoholic.

The punch is spiked. Tongues are being held. Ponies are on edge. All this sleepover needs is a spark to break the fragile truce between two fillies who will never, ever be friends.

Never ever . . .

Oooooooo. Sweetie and Tiara? Yes, please.

I haven't read either story, so I could be wrong. But if Rarity marries Filthy Rich, wouldn't that make Sweetie Belle Diamond Tiara's Aunt? And if they do start dating and eventually get married, wouldn't that make Rarity Sweeties mother-in-law and Filthy would be his daughters brother-in-law? WTF

Sweetie found herself looking away, and realized that Diamond Tiara smelled really nice. She was fresh and showered, and warm, and there was some sort of lavender shampoo, but she also had that vague scent of having cried. Or, well, that was probably in Sweetie’s imagination.

But she definitely smelled really nice.

Oh snap. I may or may not know that feel.

Also, DiamondBelle. Yes bucking please.

You're completely right, and this is mentioned as a stumbling block at the end of this story.

Holy shit that letter!

Excuse me while I reassemble my brain.

“That’s why we’re going to stop them,”

And let the hijinks begin!

Such a cute fic, I love it !
SweeTiara for the win !
oh btw., fav&followed

3771661

Yeah.

Just... Wow.

~Skeeter The Lurker

That was quick.

3771669

And given what happens in Royals, who do you think gave FR that push to write that?

i n t r i g u e

I loved this story, do u think u could continue it?

This was extraordinarily cute, Cola. Nice work!

Things will happen in the same continuity, but I'm not sure how much I'll be writing it and how much Ein will be writing it. I kind of like the idea of DT + SB having something that lasts a while and is kind of formative for them relationshipwise, in theory, but in practice it's going to get weird fast.

Mmm... epic fight.

I want be honest, I don't like an excessive lesbian's shipping presence (I'm not homophobic or other, but, for some bronies, all the mare must be lesbian o bi and there are no other reletionships of love interaction, and I love other tipology of interactions), so I'm for the RarityRich team! :raritywink::unsuresweetie:

Anyway, nice story, i love the characters, all IC, ste style, ecc...

Also the relationship between Diamon and Sweetie are very natural :)

3771889

I'm glad it worked for you! I was worried about getting the interactions to seem realistic, so it's good to hear it rang true when you read it. :twilightsmile:

3771927

It's like two girl of that age could talk and think :twilightsmile:

3772070

I didn't really have a normal childhood, so I worry sometimes that makes it harder for me to write teenagers in particular. Thank you. :twilightsheepish:

This story totally wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I expected some sort of physical altercation between Sweetie and Tiara THEN they would be friends.

Still, a great story and eagerly upvoted!

3772094

The alternate title I was going to go with was 'Bloody Lip' to cause precisely that sort of misdirection. Ein counseled me out of that. (I always take his advice. He's my literary attorney.)

This...god this is a beautifully underused ship.

3772133

I've wondered for a while why nobody thinks the bullying could be underlying belligerent crushes. Glad you liked the story! :pinkiehappy:

Congratulations... you have written a fic that makes me enjoy reading about Diamond Tiara and like her as a character. That is extremely hard to do. Well done. Overall, a very good little story and much like Royals, I'd like to see where it goes!

The sex tag is not needed as there is no sex nor any type of talk or details about sex. Really, i think this would fit an everyone tag, but teen if you dont think so. I liked it, though I felt at points I couldn't see where characters where coming from and I would have much prefered a more drawn out romance between DT and SB with the sleepover just being them starting to be friends but many moments worked well. Well, except:

She leaned over and pressed a kiss on Diamond’s cheek, just the way Diamond had done with hers earlier, and found to her relief that there was a little spot of blood in the shape of her lower lip left behind.

just ew

3772252

My thinking was that with kids all too often the kiss comes first and the actual romance comes later. Whether DT and Sweetie can actually maintain a relationship is entirely up in the air; the fact she had her first kiss with her most hated enemy is a strange milestone, s'all.

And the blood thing, well . . . maybe that's just my morbid inner child winking at the reader? :twilightsheepish:

3772281

Consider your wrath beware, uh, -ified? :twilightsheepish:

Seriously, though, it was just the kind of thing I got into as a kid. They weren't bullies because of the alcohol so much as a festering grudge, and the idea was that it never occurred to them that Diamond was inherently weak and that was why she was bullying them in the first place.

Anyway -- I'm . . . not glad you didn't like it? I'm not sure what to say, but I appreciate the feedback nonetheless. :pinkiesmile:

3772249

I'm glad you liked it, and I have to admit I started feeling bad for DT myself once I'd written the breakdown scene. :fluttershysad:

Uhm...
That was... confusing.
So I'm going to skip straight to the issue presented at the end.
Why, SB? I mean, yes, it's awkward as all hell, and the only thing worse would be if it was your mother instead of your sister, but, so far as I can tell, there isn't anything to actually _prevent_ them from getting together. They'd be splitting up a couple solely to make their own union more comfortable, which is more selfish than anything DT could possibly have done to the Crusaders, and that they'd do it to _family_ is simply abominable.

There are countless hijinks films and books about kids trying to break up -- or put together -- their parents, in one form or another. It's kind of a staple of romantic family comedies.

Admittedly, it's not my gritty/violent/tragic typical stuff, but I'm trying to extend myself. That's all. :twilightsmile:

3772343

Rarity bore the element of generosity. I take that to mean she's willing to give people the benefit of the doubt more easily than others.

Having said that, I understand the feeling. I still feel weird having any sympathy for Diamond Tiara, even in this story. I appreciate the feedback! :twilightsmile:

That was just... omg, best shiiiip. I thank you for this story, 'twas beautiful. I want moar now...

3772353
Aye, but the latter is far more prevalent, and when the former comes into play, it's usually justified (sort of) by it being a step-parent they're trying to remove, so as to regain their actual parent. It's still selfish, but it's significantly less reprehensible.
This, however... they're trying to split their relatives up solely for personal gain, and, so far as I can tell, it isn't even a necessary prerequisite to their being able to be together, legally _or_ morally. Which is why they are in the wrong.
I dunno, maybe I'm missing something, as I can tell it's supposed to be justified, somehow, and the rest of your reviewers seem to have accepted that justification.

3772405

It's not justified at all! In an adult moral framework it'd be intrusive at best or reprehensible at worst.

But these are teenagers. There is a tendency to be selfish, and even "hormones first, questions later".

The story's not really about responsible behavior so much as flawed decision-making.

Huh I can't believe I'm saying this but DT actually looks pretty in that picture. Especially without a scowl ruining it.

I'll have to read the first if Im gonna read this. ^^

3772455

I deeply hope that eventually DT is redeemed canonically, but I don't think it'll happen until at least S5.

3772468 Actually same here I already have it in my head SS isn't all bad but because DT is the only friend she has shes scared of losing her thus the reason why she does what she does.

DT I think can be a good pony hell anyone can be if they try hard enough. If discord can be reformed I don't see why DT can't.

But for now I'll enjoy the great stories to where DT SS are better individuals and actually make me care for them. ^^

YOOOOOOOO

You used one of my friend's pictures for a cover...Welp. Small world.

Through out the story I couldn't help but think:
Silver Spoon is the straight one?

Loved the story though, 3772468, you gave DT a little more depth than just a one-dimensional bully! Though I suspect for those reasons DT & SS will never be redeemed on the show. Their whole purpose is to be one dimensional bullies.

I look forward to the ensuing hijinks (from both you and Ein!)

3772504

I couldn't really find any DT/SB pics that were demonstrating distress on both faces, so I composited something from a few different sources (one SB pic, one DT pic, and one background of Carousel Boutique).

Sorry if it seemed weird to use that. Like I said on there, if any of the three artists wants me to, I'll credit them. Obviously I can't link them all as the source, but I can link in the description to make up for that.

3772494

If DT was voiced by John DeLancie, she'd have been reformed already! :scootangel: Seriously, though, I hope they do. It'd be a good lesson about getting over grudges, and I don't think there's enough of that in the world, y'know?

3772518

INORITE? Totally unexpectulated!

I figured this was more "But I'm A Cheerleader"ish anyway. It served the plot, more than anything else, but I felt it was plausible regardless. Just wait until I write a love triangle fic about AB, Featherweight, and Silvy. :twilightblush:

I'm glad you liked it! Thanks! :pinkiehappy:

whoooo a fic that doesnt treat DT like shit

Atrocious writing, really almost intolerable. You should improve your English a lot. I also didn't like how you made this about coming out. Seems like a copout when there was obviously a more important problem.

That said, this story was believable and interesting. Enjoyed it.

3773020

It was kind of a personal challenge, and I felt some definite sympathy for her personally when she read the letter. (Which was . . . a little weird, honestly. New and strange.)

3773200

Well, if you want to see my work in a worse state, go check out my oldest stories on here. :raritywink:

Seriously, though, I'm glad you liked the story on some level, and I appreciate the feedback. :twilightsmile:
