Confound these wretched equines! For every one I fling away, a dozen more vex me!

When it looks like the CMC might actually have a shot at becoming Ponyville's flag carriers for the Equestria Games, Silver Spoon comes up with the ultimate plan to throw the Crusaders off their game: Have Diamond Tiara flirt with Scootaloo.

An alternate take on "Flight to the Finish".

Just a little something that came to mind after watching FttF and reading some subsequent forum posts. Now to get back to work on P&P&S and editing First Snow. Unless, of course, another episode interferes (like DT's singing moment!)

Yup. But then, that's the case of most pony ships. Mostly female cast leads to a lot of F/F pairings. And even if that weren't the case, wouldn't be anything wrong with it :scootangel:

If you're looking for a hetero-ship involving DT/CMC though, I've got one of those as well. "Pride and Prejudice and Snails" revolves around a bit of a love triangle of DT, Sweetie, and Snails, though I'm just a wee bit behind on updating that. But Soon(tm).

That was adorable! It seemed a little rushed, like the kissing scenes just seemed to be a sentence and that's it, but overall it was really cute! A nice alternate take than what happened on the show, and I like it! Even if I hate Rarity, she made a good substitute for Dash at the end, and Diamond Tiara and Scootaloo both discussing their feelings with others was pretty smart and logical. The take on Commander Hurricane and Princess Platinum, which would technically be Dash x Rarity, was so cute! I know I'm gushing a lot, but it's the truth! The story was simply very cute and I highly enjoyed it. :heart:

I don't think I've read a story this long so many times over. (the life of a pre-reader, eh?) But I can say it only got better with each draft!

I still wish we could of gotten more after the end, but then again I'm a glutton for this ship! :heart:
Seriously, there just isn't enough of these two! <3

This is one of the best re-imagined takes on an episode I've ever read. The adorableness in this fic is TOO DANG HIGH! :rainbowkiss:
Sir, can I has sum more, please?

Thanks. I wanted to use Rarity in place of Dash both because it seemed more fitting given the focus on romance and because of Rarity playing Platinum to Dash's Hurricane. And the whole Founding of Equestria angle gave me a way in that could work with the limited time frame the episode provided :scootangel:

If I get inspired, who knows? There's definitely enough potential conflict between those two to write a dozen stories. But then there's so many other things to write...

Or maybe it'll inspire someone else to further explore the possibilities. More Scootiara would be sweet.

I usually wouldn't read something like this... :derpyderp2:
But I like it! :yay::moustache:
Seriously, you dont see much Diamond Tiara anymore in fanfictions....

That was sweet! Little DT's winning me over more and more every day. Plus any fic with Scoota-best pony-loo is a winner for me! :twilightsmile:

Thanks. If you're looking for more DT stories, there's more than you might think. Check out the Diamond Cutters group for all your DT needs.

3943373
That's what she does. You give her just a little bit of room in your heart, and then she takes over. And yup, Scootaloo is Scootadorable, with her fierce determination and spirit. That's why Scootiara is my favorite DT/CMC ship.

Why is this even a big thing? The last time I checked it hasn't been 1969 for quite some time, and gay couples are almost a common day occurrence now. Is it really such a shock to find same sex couples in fiction? :ajbemused:

This is as awesome as I'd hoped it would be :pinkiehappy:!

3943592 I agree, which is why I regard anyone going about things with this attitude in this day and age as a troll. "Aren't they both girls?", indeed. That one must be new to this fandom.

oh that was such a sweet story:pinkiesmile::twilightsmile:

3943380
Funny you should use that video clip, I thought Diamond Tiara was at her best and least hate-able when she was channeling J. Jonah Jameson in the episode where she took over the school paper. Right up until the black mail, she was harsh but fair and that was pretty far into the episode.

3943592 sorry I've never seen something like this in my town.

I... no, there are no words.

Just take my favorite, my like, and please continue writing. :raritystarry:

3944077 Absolutely 100% agreed!:pinkiehappy:

3940977

You must be new here. Welcome!

Anyway, a nice cute story. Perfect for the occasion. I can always use more DT shipping.

what the hell did i just read:facehoof:

3943761
Thanks :)

3943816
Yeah. Love that episode. It is one of the few where she gets a decent chunk of screentime, and we get to see more of her than an early bit to start the ball rolling, a little bit in the middle to keep it doing so, before her comeuppance in the end. And shows she can get along with the CMC, even praise them.

That's the plan. So many ideas...

3944391
Ship DT with all (the age appropriate) ponies!

3943973 It may not be immediately obvious, and no matter if the couple is gay or straight, you won't often see them kissing in public.

To the author; this was wonderful! :rainbowkiss: DTxScootaloo OTP.

3944563 it's not allowed in the town that I live in.

3944566 Oh? Where do you live? I would recommend that you keep an eye out for civil rights movements, wherever it is.

you stole the pic for my story i was gonna write.....:fluttershysad:
no but really, I think this will be awesome

3944643
Blame Fernesh! He posted it in a Shipping group forum thread on cute shipping pics a little bit after the episode came out. And that's part of why I had the idea and wrote the story :scootangel: Of course, considering he's the head of the Scootiara group, I expect he'll be pleased that the pic he's been posting inspires people to write the ship.

It's a good pic though, and we could use more Scootiara stories, so don't let me using it stop you from doing so.

3944658 \
blast that fernesh! :flutterrage:

just joking, :twilightblush: i agree with you completely, I apologize :twilightblush:

3944658
Excellent story bro, as a ScooTiara fan you have all my respect :yay:
And yeah, I'm pleased and proud of you :rainbowdetermined2:

3944721
I blast you first :coolphoto:

3940977 You must be new here

3944982 misspellt genius genius have a cookie

What the f :derpytongue2::derpytongue2::derpytongue2: did I just read.

3943816
I noticed that too. I kept waiting for her to scream at them to "Get me more pictures of Spiderman!"

3945055 Something.... rather wonderful. I love it when, in stories, ponies just don't care who you're with. The way Rarity just kinda went "Oh, filly then? Okie dokie." is how I imagine at least most of Equestria.

Anyways, as anyone can tell, I loved this. I KNEW THIS SHIP HAD POTENTIAL!!!!:pinkiehappy:

3945361 it was a joke about how long it was.

3944982
Ah wanna be a genus, cahn ah be a genus?
Thems those smart peoples, raht?

3944618
I have to say the same about your profile pic, except replace the word "kinda" with "really really really really really"

3944409
Several words, sorted into sentences, divided into paragraphs, making up a story.

3945798 Ah. :twilightblush: Well, was gonna voice that bit anyways so... frell. :moustache:

That was really good
