Loves Fluttershy, Pokemon, and the color pink.

Fluttershy should just forget about it -- it was years ago, after all, and Rainbow Dash really didn't do anything. And with how much good she's done for her... all it is now, should be, is a memory. A silly, insignificant memory. Not hurtful at all, when taking everything else into consideration. Even if Dash never apologized, having just forgotten it ever happened, it shouldn't matter to her.

Right?




A personal piece.

Very glad that I was able to help with this one. You're getting much better with every story you write. Though, you did mention that this was a personal piece. So if you don't mind me asking, how does this relate to you?

When I was younger I used to get picked on a little bit. It wasn't terrible, and what the bullies said really didn't hurt me that much. But... at the time all of my close friends had started to drift away from me. They talked to me less, hung out with me less. Eventually it got to the point where we barely saw each other at all, even though we used to be the best of friends. I could have handled that, but around that time the bullying got a little worse, usually when my friends weren't around. And one day, when some people were sitting there poking fun of me, all of my friends, who were sitting by me... just went silent. They didn't say anything. Didn't do anything. Just sat there while this group of people laughed at me. And then... one of them joined in with them, and made it worse with something embarrassing I had only told to her.

I mean, what they did wasn't terrible. That thing that my friend said, while being embarrassing, wasn't that big of a deal and this whole ordeal lasted maybe a few minutes. But the fact that it happened hurt. Sometimes I feel guilty for not letting that, and the fact that they sort of ditched from the year that it happened onwards (we're still not close since those couple of years, even though we're getting a lot better), go, and other times I don't.

Oh, wow, that went on for longer than expected, sorry. :twilightblush:

I can relate to being bullied, I used to be put down by a group of popular girls, what usually was meant to be a fun field trip turned into a nightmare that I had to try not to cry in front of them, I didn't want to give them anymore satisfaction l, so I had a friend we were practically sisters I trusted her with all my secrets and she would comfort me when I would feel bad and I would comfort her, so one day I told her I liked tinker bell (this was in fourth grade) and she starting saying I was too old to watch it and all that stuff so I told her I didn't like it (this has happened before almost every single time I told her I liked this show or something) I got fed up with it so I walked off and we'll next thing you know she's best friends with the head of the popular girls group, it's been years and she doesn't so much as look at me now even the bullies are actually 20 times nicer to me now than she is. I've gotten over it well more like I'm mad but I learned to just let things go and move on. Any ways sorry for my little rant on to the story it was amazing and I loved it! I really wish there was more, but nonetheless it's awesome

I'm really sorry to hear about the bullying and your old friend. Sometimes things just fall apart, and there's nothing we can do about it. :applejackunsure: I am glad to hear that those other girls act better to you now, though, and that you were able to move on. :twilightsmile:

Oh, and thanks for the compliments. :rainbowkiss:

4120763 don't mention, it's funny really (and this is random) that me and this one girl became best friends just because we found out that we both liked mlp which was a total relief to me so now I'm not the only one in the seventh grade lol although I did manage to expose a few other bronies (not publicly of course more like in private haha I caught this one guy totally off guard when I asked him how he knew who rainbow dash was but I promised not to tell anyone that he did) Oh gosh I really gotta stop talking so much heh sorry :twilightsheepish:

I sort of have a story like that myself, though it made me want to bang my head against the table when it happened. :facehoof:

4120879 lol :rainbowlaugh: really? How come?

Just read the blog post. You'll... you'll understand why, trust me. The irony still hurts me to this day. This blog post here.

Just how weird am I, that despite this excellent fic, and the wonderful Fluttershy characterization...

...the main thing I pick up from this fic is the idea of pegasi flocking like birds, and Rainbow leading a flock?

I don't know. I, too, stopped and thought of that immediately after writing that line. So it's kinda a 50/50 chance on the weirdness thing. :rainbowwild:

Also thanks for those compliments that was totes nice of you. :rainbowkiss:

It's the small things you remember, the small things that pop up when you're not expecting it, and they're always relevant in some way. Nobody else remembers them, but you do, and your realize that they tell you things about others you wish you didn't know... or, if you're lucky, are glad to be aware of. Although I never thought of it before, that moment being one of them for Fluttershy makes perfect sense.

Thank you very much for commenting and adding this to your libraries. That goes for the other ones as well! It really does mean a lot to me that you'd take the time to go through them like this, and I hope you enjoyed. :twilightsmile: I wish I could think of more to say, really, but... again, just thanks. :pinkiehappy:

Wow, I loved this! It was a really beautifully written story and had really good characterization! Have a like and a fave.
(Why isn't this featured yet? D:)

Thank you for your compliments, as well as your like and fave! :pinkiehappy:

(Oh, and this isn't featured because,
1: it could be a lot better, and
2: this is actually really old; I wrote this back in 2014. I've been thinking about rewriting some of my old fics, so maybe I'll rewrite this one day!)

Again, thanks a lot!! :twilightsmile:

I've had this in my Read It Later for a while, but I'm glad I finally got round to it. As 5312092 said (better than I probably can), this really captures those odd little moments in life, when you remember some small passing thing that just won't quite leave. Like a particularly stubborn stain.

Sometimes it's a mistake you made, a minor thing that everyone else has forgotten but your brain has latched on to, or words said in anger that you can't take back. And sometimes it's old slights that you feel like you should let go, but meant so much to you even if they didn't mean quite as much to them...
