Just another writer that aims to entertain. Nothing to see here, move along. Though yes, I am very feminist. Don't like it? That's nice.

After a little incident at the Equestria Games tryouts, Cheerilee finds herself apologizing to Ms. Harshwhinny and taking her out to drink as penance. Things won't get weird between them over alcohol, right?


This is probably the only Harshilee story that exists, or ever will, so I suppose this is part of my ongoing theme of pairings basically nobody loves.

Sex tag is for risqué jokes and situations.

Cheerwhinny?! :pinkiegasp: Never thought I'd see this.

3965309
I didn't either. So I wrote it myself! :pinkiehappy:

I bless this new ship. Let it sail safely.
Amen.

Also, I bet Miss Harshwhinny is in great shape. She was probably a participant in the Games before she turned to running the thing.

And so another mighty vessel is sent to sea, may it journey far and prosper.

3965513
Amen! :rainbowkiss:
I... actually had not thought of that possibility. :rainbowderp: I like it! :pinkiehappy:

3965673
...insert joke about plundering booty here. :twilightsheepish:

3965673 I agree with you. That trophy could mean that she won a few competitions when she was younger, maybe gymnastics.

3965833
Hmm, or maybe track? :duck:

3965960
Thank you! :twilightsmile: Hope it continues to be!

Oh, this is going to be good...

I like how you used Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon's off-screen shenanigans to get Cheerilee to talk to Ms. Harshwhinny. I didn't really think about it at the time, but that certainly does seem like the sort of thing that would happen right after the end of the episode. Looking forward to the next chapter.

I was excited for this when I saw it posted. Then I read it and I got even more excited. Then I realised it was not a one shot, and this is promising to be an ongoing.

I just exploded from excitement! Twice!

Looking forward to reading more of this, LD. How is it you come up with such unique and interesting ships? I suspect dark magic is involved.

3966722
Thank you! :twilightsmile: Took me a little bit to come up with that set-up. And hope I don't disappoint!

3967961
The dark magic of friendship, of course! Or selling a shard of my soul to Mr. Zebub, I can't remember. :trixieshiftright: Anyway, this will be ongoing, but fairly short. Three chapters total, though the second is already shaping up to be significantly longer than the first. We'll see how it all turns out, but feel free to toss out ideas! It might extend the length he said. :pinkiehappy:

Also, comments from you are always a delight. Just letting ya know. :rainbowkiss:

You should probably make a group for that sort of purpose, you know? Like, just make a group where a bunch of people can have their stories on involving shipping two ponies that nopony's shipped yet together.

3969478
Oh my god. :rainbowlaugh:

3969708
Maybe. I mean, there's already the groups Unloved Couples, Underappreciated Shippings, and Uncommon Shipping Pairs, but for new, novel stuff? I don't think one exists. What would I call it, though? :rainbowhuh:

3969890 Hmmm, maybe...
Oh, wow. This might be tougher than I thought. Normally, it's easy for me to blurt out stuff that makes sense.
How's about "New shipping."
Just brainstorming.

3969890
3969894
"Maiden Voyages" in reference to the first time a ship sets sail? Could have the group used as an archive for the first story of every ship.

3970306 Actually, that one sounds much better than my idea.

Dis gon b gud. May this ship sail far and wide.

3969894 3970306
Ohhh, I like! Or perhaps Shipping Pioneers? I don't want just the first; that'd be way too restrictive. But it would be nice to have a group with all the shipping stories that are daring to be different. :duck:

3971237
Hope it is! Next chapter goes up tomorrow~! :pinkiehappy:

3971244
Heck, you could have fun with it and put both together in some way, like "Maiden Voyages of the Shipping Pioneers"

And I get what you mean by only the first being too restricting. Would also be really hard to track down the original shippings (especially mane 6, for example).

Oh, I like this already. This is a unique ship, you have caught their personalities well, and I can see this situation unfolding without much trouble. I will be keeping an eye on this story.

Very unusual shipping, but I like it, and I will be keeping an eye on this story:pinkiehappy:

a place called the Rose Quartz Canyon

Hmm, I see what you're doing there! :trixieshiftright:
Risqué jokes indeed

Great setup BTW as others have commented. Definitely watching to see where this goes.

3971346
Even better! :pinkiehappy: Only problem is that I'm not the administrative type. :twilightsheepish:

3972238 3973152
Glad you liked it; hope I don't disappoint! :twilightsmile:

3974131
I was wondering when someone would get that! :rainbowlaugh:

Nice back story on Harshwhinny. Glad you took my suggestion.

Interresting story so far, love the backstory.

Harshwhinny's son?
Cheerilee's bi?

Love the Harshwhinny backstory. Also:

3975854
It was a great suggestion! Thanks for providing it. :pinkiehappy:

3975894
Glad you think so! :pinkiehappy:

3975926
Well, backstory and sexuality are huge blanks for these characters, sooooo. :scootangel:

3976056
Never knew that song existed, actually. :rainbowderp: Glad I know now, though! Chapter title was meant to be a reference to Halestorm's "Here's To Us," for the record.

3976083
Well what~? :duck:

Well, this is different. :twilightoops:

Anyway, despite how short this is, the whole thing between Cheerilee and Harshwhinny doesn't seem rushed at all. Interesting backstory for Harshwhinny. This story has piqued my interest so I'm going to keep an eye on it. Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

3976541
I don't want to be too crass and spell it right out. :fluttershyouch:
First do an image search on 'rose quartz' and take a good look at that color.
Then think about what sort of mounds and valleys two healthy mares might get to exploring once the drinks start flowing. :yay:

3976638
Thank you! I was really worried about the pacing, but I'm glad this worked out. :pinkiehappy: Hope the last chapter meets expectations!
3976787
What they said. :scootangel:

First chapter made me intrigued, but this one was just beautiful. Harshwhinny's backstory and plight with her son makes for a nice explanation for her character, Cheerilee is very IC and kind as ever. And all in all, its a heartfelt and sweet story.
NOW BRING ON THE BOOZE!
Ps: I called that it was a gay bar from when I heard who recommended it! :rainbowlaugh:

It just keeps getting better and better:rainbowkiss:

3976787 Oh. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. :twilightsheepish: It's... that thing.

3976277

Well, backstory and sexuality are huge blanks for these characters, sooooo. :scootangel:

Wait... wait. Let me... wait. Let me get this straight (haha, preemptive pun!)

The default isn't straight? When did that happen? LGBT peeps actually exist? And you write stories involving them. I NEVER EXPECTED THIS IN A ROMANCE FIC ABOUT HARSHWHINNY AND CHEERILEE. :pinkiegasp:

And sarcasm over.

It was kind of a headcanon of my wife's and mine that Cheerilee was gay, thus the awkwardness of H&H day episode. Of course, that's a little less head-cannony now after Filly Vanilli, unless she was swooning ironically. And that means I have some 'splainin' (away) to do for a sequel I had planned for one of my fics. :facehoof:

3977210
Mraw, thank you! Always appreciate the deeper feedback. :pinkiehappy: And I was waiting for someone to guess that beforehand. :rainbowwild:

3977284
So glad you're entertained! :pinkiehappy:

3977377
Well, yeah. Traditional Western stories have a three-act structure, and I've tried to make that apparent. This is gonna be one of my shorter stories, and a bit of an experiment. I've learned I can't really handle long stories, so... :twilightsheepish:

3977421
Trust me, I've had big arguments with a:yay:holes trying to insist that canon is king and straight is the default. I've kind of just said f:yay: it to those people. Buck convention, buck canon, and go into the wild blue yonder of lesbian technicolor horses. :rainbowdetermined2: Or bisexual ones. Bisexuality is always a nice solution to canon-itis.

3977458
I hear ya! I've had similar arguments before any time I dare add an LGBT character. Le sigh.

But you're right. f:flutterrage: 'em. More gays equals more :yay:'s

:pinkiehappy:

Hmm, I gotta be honest, I went into this expecting some super forced ship. But so far I really quite like it.

Great backstory on Harshwhinny. Simple, believable, gets the job done. I never upvote on first chapters, usually, but this earned it along with the favorite.

Only real nitpick is you use "everybody" a lot, when it should be "everypony"

Laughing my ass off about the part where Prasi tells them it's a filly fooler bar.
:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

3979440
So glad you enjoyed it! :pinkiehappy: Pretty high praise, too! And honestly, I prefer "everybody" in most stories. It depends on the tone I'm going for. If it's more somber, I use everybody. But if it's more silly like the show, I use everypony.

3980373
Laugh away~ :trollestia:

Noooooooooooo! I wanted them to stick it out against reality!

3986137

Seconded.

I can enjoy stories that are firmly rooted in reality (as much as a fanfiction about talking, multi-colored ponies can be), but I really wanted to see these two work out.

3986137 There's still ways to stick it out ... Somepony's got to chaperone the Cutie Mark Crusaders when they carry Ponyville's flag for the opening ceremony...

I agree that I woulda liked to see more lovin', but that's what sequels are for ...

By which I mean, I may write one myself? No promises, but it could be really fun?
