Hi! I'm MintyJoy, a writer of fluff and happiness, but I'm not afraid to pull at the heartstrings. If you plan to read the words I paint, be prepared for the feels. My favorite pony is Rainbow Dash!


Rainbow Dash and Applejack have been friends for a long time, but their friendship took a long time to get to where it currently is. Along with this long-grown friendship are some different kind of feelings on Dash's side. Now these feelings have grown strong enough that Dash is afraid they may ruin their friendship. After things seem to go too far, Rainbow Dash decides one stormy night that it's time to explain her feelings to Applejack. Even if it means she can never take her flying again.

Thank you to my wonderful proofreader, WhatTheMoo for helping with my story! (Chapters finished: 1-5)

A fun read thus far...kinda to much How I met your mom to it..

Good stuff.
One thing, you could have added some dialog between Rainbow Dash and her dad.
I think that would give a bit more info on Rainbow Dash and her father.
Granny Smith pleaded (with) her granddaughter.

Great chapter :pinkiehappy: It's great that you're trying to show what they have in common and yet how different they are. I loved that moment, when AJ was afraid that Rainbow might have hurt herself.

4520219 thank you very much for your input!

I like the idea of building up Dash's dad, but I was worried it would take away from the main focus of the story.

4525120 Thank you so much!! :yay:

Well this is great one of the bests appledash fics I've ever read! I love it! (I got that thg reference btw)

Favorited! Aside from some spelling and grammar errors throughout, it's a really well-put-together story! I can't wait to read the next chapter!

4587741 I'm glad! I'll have to read it again and find the errors...

4586988 the reference :pinkiehappy:
Yeah, I was giggling the whole time I put it in :rainbowlaugh: Glad you got it.

Indeed, Applejack's eyes ARE beautiful :rainbowkiss: No wonder that Rainbow fell in love... Loved this chapter, it was cute, heartwarming and full of AppleDash. What's not to love?! Also, the little dialogues at the end of every chapter are great and they leave me wanting to know more.

“No but seriously, what’s your favorite color?”

Hunger Games :pinkiehappy:

Heh, I like where this is going :pinkiehappy:

oh you are tying into the destruction of the old barn next time?

:heart: I am loving this story!

Man, the farm pony had many words that described her, but ‘adorable’ wasn’t normally one Dash though of. That is, not until now. She listened to the snores and blushed softly, a smile just shaping her lips as she looked at her friend. AJ’s hair was slightly ruffled, and coming out of its once secure knot, her chest moving up and down at a slow and steady rate, and her muzzle was tucked under one of her hooves. She looked pretty darn adorable.



Very nice chapter, I like fact that Little Strongheart helped Dash realize that she has feelings for Applejack.

Thank you so much!!
I am glad you are enjoying my work, and telling me so really drives me to keep writing. :twilightsmile:
You guys are awesome! :rainbowkiss:

The chapter was great as usuall...and I think I have an idea about of what episode is it going to be based off the next chapter

Well, it was interesting. It's pretty cute that Rainbow is so afraid that she could have some feelings for AJ. But it makes sense, considering how close they are. If Applejack doesn't reciprocate her feelings Dash has a lot to lose... Anyway, can't wait for the next chapter :pinkiehappy: It's gonna be good!

agh.. not in the feels again..i barely survived last time

:pinkiecrazy: If we don't get more I'm going to have to come find you, tie you to your chair, and hold a banana to your head until we get more of this brilliant literature. :trollestia:

I've been reading this story for a while now, as the chapters get published. Just wanted to drop in to let you know you're doing good and I'm enjoying it so far (even if my favored shipping is TwiDash and not AppleDash most of the time! :twilightblush:).

One note on chapter 8 though...

Stealing herself, Dash gave out a battle cry...

I think that should be "steeling", as in the metal, not stealing as in theft.

Thank you for the correction! I always thought it was 'stealing oneself' because you had to steal (take) yourself over before you did something scary or hard. :twilightblush: Guess not.

The next chapter is just for you. :rainbowkiss::ajsmug:

Soooooo sweet! Keep it comin'!

“Not what, but who.” A sly smile slid its way onto Dash’s lips.
“Fahne then,” Applejack yawned and rested her head on one hoof. “Who was the problem?”

Oh. My. God.
THIS IS GONNA BE GOOD! :pinkiehappy:

Hey, haven't seen you comment in a while! I was starting to miss you... :fluttershysad:
Oh, and yes. It's going to be amazing. :pinkiehappy:

Sorry, I often read it on my phone and forget to write something! But I read everything and love this story very much!

Oh, it's fine! And thank you very much! I'm glad you like it. :twilightsmile:
Will do! :pinkiehappy:
