Monochromatic


Perfect has seven letters and so does meeeeee. Ko-fi|Patreon

If Twilight had learned something from her relationship with Rarity, it was that even if she was hopelessly in love with the other unicorn, she wanted Rarity to fulfill her dreams -- even if it meant sacrificing their own relationship and breaking both their hearts.

Edited version of a one-shot I never intended on uploading, but am posting under insistence encouragement of a couple of friends.

Do me a favor. Put this on 'incomplete' and actually make them happy together, will you? :twilightangry2:

(Single tear runs down cheek) Beautiful! :ajsleepy: :rainbowkiss:

4799603 Not everything needs a happy ending.

I disagree. Vehemently. If I want ambiguity or even sadness, I'll go outside. In this place, I want happy endings.

4799170 This was all a convoluted plan to rickroll all of you.

By law, you must all now picture Twilight singing "Never Gonna Give You Up" to Rarity

I look at the ending as implied happiness. They both obviously still love each other and, in my mind at least, I see them getting back together and having a happy life together.

You do that. I am going to make Monochromatic write it for me. :rainbowwild:

They do indeed get together in the end. I was originally going to leave it ambiguous, but without really making clear if Rarity still loved Twilight or not, but I'm a sucker for implied happy endings, so I made Rares' feelings a little clearer.

Thank you!!!

I know I'm usually the first to run out supporting this underloved ship, but trust me, this is a true gem. Mono, you have the rare talent to go from cute fluff to thoughtful soliloquies and dramatic flair. Muy bueno, mi amiga. You leave me wanting more. Peace, Sam :eeyup:

If it lacks a happy ending, it needs either the tragedy or sad tag.

Y u do dis

Why do you make such good Rarilight stories :raritydespair:

I'm going to be honest here: this far into your RariTwi stories, I've kind of run out of ways to say how awesome they are. Really, all that's left for me at this point is to point out that I've run out of ways to say it, then fill the rest of this comment with emoticons. :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay:

Fantastic story! The cliffhanger will haunt me forever, though

I just realized you're also the one that runs the rarilight tumblr :twilightsmile: You've steadily made me ship this more and more over the past few months

Thank you! And ohhhh my gosh, that is exciting news to hear! Soon everyone will ship rarilight bwahahahaha! And my god, I'm slightly embarassed you know me from tumblr considering I'm such a spazz over there ahahaha :twilightblush:

I'm too lazy to read the updated version of Injuring Eternity right now, so I read this.

I'm so not disappointed. This is great, even if I am upset that you didn't give it a proper ending. :fluttercry:

I'm not gonna lie. This killed my earlier mood. It's scary how a guy that feels almost nothing can have his stomach twisted and crushed by some simple sadness relayed through hoerswords.

I almost didn't finish it, but I knew you wouldn't disappoint. I guess it's off to reread Injuring Eternity now that it's been rewritten.

Was bracing for a sudden sad end there

This fic hurt my feelings

Even with the ending

Aww come on a cliff hanger what God did I anger to deserve this:raritydespair:

Also, fun fact, this originally had Dusk Shine instead of good ol' Fancy -- and by Dusk Shine, I do indeed mean Twilight's genderbend.

Making the love rival the genderbent equivalent of the main love interest is taking your otp to the next level. I don’t know if that should be considered angst or the same thing. I’m not really going to start questioning it right now while my sanity is still intact. But then again I am into a fandom about Horses so I don’t know what I should consider as a sane decision.

I enjoyed this little one-shot! RariTwi is surprisingly adorable and honestly rising up on my list of favored pairings. Huh.

A very interesting piece! I really like a lot of the drama and more almost-melancholy elements in many of your older one shots, but it sucks because now there's some I just can't find anymore. I remember there being one that addressed the issue of Spike so wonderfully, and now it appears to be gone. Is it on No Crow now? I really liked it, and alts are a great place for dumping stuff like that.

The lack of cover art was the only thing that was really odd about this, but I really love how you frame Rarity's bisexuality in your stories and how authentic it feels. The drama that always finds its way into your work, and even stay so grounded at times is great stuff.

Not every story needs a happy ending, and not everything should have one. This was a fantastic surprise.

Goodness, I keep coming back to this one. It's one of my favorite Mono stories. Thank you for bringing it back.
