The speed of life is an unchanging one. We all feel it differently, whether we're slow and humble or speedy and adventurous. Sometimes it takes a lot to change this, and sometimes it takes very little to slow down.

This is a story about two very opposite ponies, and how they changed each others lives.

AN: This is the official rewrite of His Name Is Mac from Fanfiction . net. It is not required to have read that story first before reading this one.

Chapters (2)

read it on fanfic.net, insta track

Why does everypony insist on saying, "No way things can go wrong" ? It's like they're asking for it or something :rainbowlaugh:

Getting a MacinDash vibe from the story pic, and that sounds good to me! Tracked, will read in a few minutes.

Edit: Nice start, can't wait for more.

Looking forward to the chapters to come. Especially now since you said "Things couldn’t possibly go wrong today." That completely initials that something bad or horrible is going to happen and I have a few ideas. Big Macintosh might get pressured into doing the rodeo and get seriously hurt or some bulls might 'escape' and Big Mac tries to stop them and gets seriously hurt. Oh and something with Rainbow Dash finding Big Macintosh sexy, interesting and ends up wanting to know more about him.

Wait, wait, wait. You wrote His Name is Mac? That's the story that got me into writing fan fiction in the first place, your characterizations in that piece were phenomenal. I was so sad to hear it had been cancelled, and now that it's being rewritten, well, have a thumbs up, a favorite, and a 'thank you good sir'.

Welp. This looks very promising.

Totally tracking this.

Been waiting a long time for this story liked and tracked

I'm glad to see this come around. I enjoyed His Name is Mac. And any MacDash is good MacDash.

I remember reading this on fanfiction.net but.....wasn't it a mac and fluttershy story.....oh well this will be good anyway....plus your the one who introduced me to fimfiction so you get ummm....6 mustaches :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Excellent chapter, loved the background for the Ponies vs Bull fight tradition, and that scene with all the mares in the line for Big Mac and Braeburn :rainbowlaugh: when you get the swagmasters to sell expect ridiculous amounts of mares and money :eeyup: cant wait for your next update :twilightsmile:

MacnDash! So excited!:rainbowkiss:

I'm liking this! It has all the elements of a good story: Rainbow Dash, Big Macintosh, Rainbow Dash, Braeburn, danger, Rainbow Dash...

Can't wait to see where this goes!

BTW Sorry, I didn't respond to your message about pre-reading. I would, in fact, like to solicit your advice regarding future chapters before I post them, if you're still interested.

435324 Whoa. I had no idea that I influenced you in such a way. Guess it's true what they say; 'All lives touch other lives'. Love Keeping it Simple, by the way. :rainbowwild:

435639 I'm pretty sure it was a MacDash story. Fluttershy didn't have a role until the chapter that I cancelled it on. :applejackunsure:

435691 I believe it's called 'swagnetism'. :moustache:

436661 Of course, anything to help a fellow writer. :twilightsmile:

I'll start writing the next chapter soon. Thank you all for all the tracks and faves so far (because they're the same thing :pinkiecrazy:)

Aw HELL YES! Another great chapter!
We were not disappointed! MORE!

Oh, I get the feeling Dashie is going to end up eating those words.

Apple Trunk sounded a short chortle, “Why, I’m their father, o’ course.”

I must say that this is the first fic i see that their parents are alive at least one them for what i know right now, specially the father since he would be the one who educated Mas as a Gentlecolt, your charactarization of him was great but i think that he would know more about his son but again as you made it its totally awesome ,loved his talk with Rainbow.:twilightsmile:
Also loved Mac in this, and cant wait for your next update

(want to comment something better but im really stuck right now i'll probably edit this):eeyup:

That was a pretty damn good read. Keep it up.

...They have a father?
Your mind's mind has been mindfucked.

i droped my phonw when i read the father bit..........:ajbemused:

still love it:pinkiehappy:

Very good. Very natural. I'm going to go ahead and pre empt any negative reviews who say this feels forced by pointing out all the fic descriptions on here that start out "rd and fs are in love but fs is...". Ok, that' s unreal and unjustified. This is perfect. You have why rd is social (she's bored) why mac is interesting (mare magnet and mysterious past, both very believable) why she's paying attention to him more than anyone else (they're all the same, plus the dad who for some reason isn't dead).

Again, the small amount of suspension of disbelief is refreshing.:heart::heart::eeyup:

Woah, a living Apple family parent? How novel!

the father is...ALIVE!?!?!:pinkiegasp:
thanks for bucking the trend:pinkiehappy:

You have my full attention, please continue. o.o

You have no idea how hapy I am to see that His Name is Mac lives on, in a sense.

Made my day. Keep up the good work.

*after reading this, you will reread that in Luna's royal voice*

A really good start to a possibly great story. Keep up the good work.

Forgive me, I don't know how I never commented on this before. Maybe I did over on FF.Net Anywho, this story is great. The set up is amazing and the characterization is spot on. AJ's dad is a hoot and I like the idea of the Apples pimping out their sons to sell apples. Conniving schemers! XD

Curious Dash is the best Dash, especially when she's trying to make sure the others don't think its because she likes Mac...which I don't think she even does, yet.

Can't wait to



Umm...when can we have a new chapter ?

the one thing I will say is that it's a common misconception that Bulls hate the color red... in reality, bulls are colorblind, they can't tell the difference between red, blue, green, purple, cyan, orange, or any other color, they can only see the hues in grey...

what Bulls go after is the motions the cape makes by the matador... they attack anything moving once they are provoked... the only reason the cape is red, is to hide the blood (and to be more visible by the spectators)

Please continue, I see greatness here. Also, :eeyup::heart::rainbowdetermined2: for the win.

Murphy's law shall be enacted upon Rainbow dash soon


2075508 Soon enough. I had to put my other fic on hold to get some work done, but I'm having real life issues.

Trying to settle that stuff first before I can get to work. :ajsmug:

man i can't wait for this one to update

Well, this story is fucking cute as a motherfucker, dudebro. I demand you continue it, lest I wail incessantly in protest.

Seriously. This story looks like it has awesome potential. I really want to see where it goes, my friend.
