Spike is going to get a kiss from Rarity this year, he just knows it – and the mistletoe he just put over the front door is going to help him do just that. But when Twilight lets Rarity into the castle in his place, Rarity believes that Twilight is trying to get a kiss from one of her friends. Too bad Twilight has no idea what Rarity is talking about.

And when Spike answers the door after Sweetie Belle shows up to join her big sister for the Hearth Warming party, he finds his trap backfiring as he gets a kiss from the wrong unicorn.

Now Rarity is pestering Twilight about her love life and Spike can’t get away from the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Where did it all go wrong?

Oh dear, this is going to go so horribly wrong. I can't wait.

It will go wrong... but in all the right ways

5421054
WELL YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT.

But not too long, fortunately. :heart:

5421068
Hopefully so! Gotta have a smile for Hearth Warming, after all.

Rarity will never let Twilight live this down.

Well, I'm intrigued. I look forward to seeing where you go with this.

5421142
Of course not. She's Rarity. :heart:

Not that she would ever say such a thing. It just won't happen. :duck:

“Of course not!” Twilight stomped her hoof. “That’s why I need it now, so I can get another chapter out of the way before they get here.”

Heh, that hits mildly close to home considering I'm sitting in my mother's living room reading this while her and my oldest brother talk around me.

Of course, it hits close to home because it makes perfect sense!

This looks like it'll be fun.

Well, the SpikeBelle got me here, and the good writing and fun dialogue kept me. Is this also a RariTwi story, or some other Mane Six ship?

5421399

I'm glad that you liked the dialogue, though; I really like dialogue in my stories. Sometimes almost too much...

I'll be honest. I found that the part about Flash Sentry bloated the fic up quite a bit, without adding any actual content. There just doesn't seem to be any reason for that to be there at all, unless I'm missing something[1].

As for the fic in general, the conceit sure sounds pretty cool, but there's way too little of it so far for me to actually have any expectations.


[1] Did they hook up in Rainbow Rocks, perhaps?

That's what you get from trying to sneak a kiss from me Spike. :duck:

Now I got to read

5421472 Never read a Spike x Sweetie Belle fic before, but i have a feeling I'm going to love this. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Well Spike, that's what you get for trying to be sneaky. How's this gonna work out for you now?

Poor Spikey. . .Raritys devils out to play. . .:raritywink: Spikes got to suffer before she rewards the brave knight:moustache::raritystarry::facehoof:

CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS DRAGON PLAYERS ! YAY !:scootangel::applecry::unsuresweetie:

:twilightoops:sPIKE!

Ten seconds later, as Spike was running to find a ladder:

"Salutations, Twilight Sparkle!" Luna called from the doorway. "We had heard of your Hearth's Warming Eve party, and while we did not receive an invitation, we had hoped you might be amenable to our attendance."

"For once," Celestia said, her head popping around the edge of the door frame, "she's not using the royal We."

They paused for a moment.

"What is everypony staring ..." Luna said as she glanced up. "... Oh."

:trollestia:

5421771
Well, on the upside, at least he's not related to her.

On the downside, his excuses for dragging over the stepladder for Princess Luna are going to be pretty lame.

Plus, hey, he'll grow into it!

...in a hundred years or so. :trixieshiftright:

5421399
Naw. What we have here is Spike inadvertently making a mess. By the end of this story, prolly a flaming, catastrophic mess.

With shipping overtones. Sure. Maybe.

I'm very certain it will involve fire. Lots of it.

Yes... let the misunderstandings flow through you! Suffer in embarrassment for our enjoyment!
But not too much embarrassment, otherwise I'll start feeling embarrassed, too...

5422318
Ah yes, the narrow line between schadenfreude and empathy - a dangerous line to walk.

But a fun one.

5421933
Well, there will be at least one fire.

In the fireplace.

Any others would be telling.

Though, lighting crystal on fire is remarkably difficult, depending on the crystal...

5422724
Thanks! The next chapter will be out tomm... er, today, now, I suppose, probably roughly 12ish hours from now. Merry Christmas Hearth Warming! :twilightsmile:

SHL

Lol! Too much amazing chaos in just around 1.000 words!!! I love it :twilightsmile:

5423018
I'm glad you liked it! More shall be coming later. :heart:

Your story description is way too long. Why not keep it simple?

"Spike puts up a mistletoe hoping to get a kiss from Rarity. Things do not go according to plan." or something like that.

Pretty good so far. Maybe it could have been a few thousand word one shot, but oh well.

If I had to make one criticism, that whole Flash Sentry part came out of nowhere and added nothing.

Anyway, I've barely read Spikebelle, so I'll be keeping an eye on this.

5421209
Heh. Nice. Sounds like a Hearths Warming or Christmas family gathering plenty of us can relate to!!

That bit between her and Spike was very much in character and made me smile.

Merry Christmas or Happy Hearths Warming.... pick the one you like!

Ah, the famous SweetieSpike vs Sparity premise, mixed with some mistletoe-kiss plot...
Everything good for an adorable shipfic for christmas :rainbowkiss:
But I can feel the sh*tstorm coming from here...

HAHAAHAAHAHAHA this is hilarious you have to work on the next chapter immediately:pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Oh, poor Spike. (Funniest backfire I've ever read) I can imagine how this is going to play out. It's a great story so far, so keep it up!

Heh. Looking forward to the next one.

Awe! <3 that was actually really cute! XD can't wait for the next chapter!

Aw that was cute. I wonder where they go from here?

My shipping senses tell me this contains SpikeBelle... Sorry, but whenever I see a SpikeBelle and mention ButtonBelle, everyone flips out... I'm going to read, but no guaranteed likes, follows, or favs.

Take it down, spike! Save the shipping! I will fav for now, I'm interested.

5425424

If you don't like it, ignore it. :unsuresweetie: No one is forcing you to. :twilightsmile:

Also, you don't even have to comment. Just keep your ships to yourself and don't mention your ships if you don't want to cause any shipping wars. Whenever I mention SpikeBelle, ButtonBelle people get angry and shove it down my thoart and get mad at me. I, personally, like both SpikeBelle and ButtonBelle. (PipBelle, on the other hand or hoof, just no...)

But seriously, don't worry about your ships and don't even mention it if you want to prevent any shipping wars. :twilightsmile:

Besides, Shipping wars are plain old stupid, we should ship what we want

5425528
Well, the way I figure it, the story's the thing. While I do prefer some ships to others, as far as I'm concerned, the most important thing is that the story is good and interesting, and has a sense of verisimilitude to it. As such, I'm always happy to read a good story, even if I don't "ship it", because a good story will convince me of what I'm reading in the context of the piece.

A lot of my favorite romance stories aren't of couples that I actively ship, and even some of my romance stories aren't of ships that I actively pull for. But that isn't what is important to me; what is important is that it works in the story and in character.

So, well, hopefully this story is interesting to folks and, in the context of the story, the actions of all the characters are or will be believable.

The next chapter has been taking a bit longer to hash out than I thought it would yesterday, as I had some trouble writing one of the important narrative bridges in the dialogue. Still, it is nearing completion, and it should be up either later tonight or when I get up tomorrow, depending on whether or not I run into any more snags. It is significantly longer than the prologue, and consequently, is taking more time to get right; I may end up breaking it up into two shorter chapters, depending on what my prereaders think, but in either case it will all be up ASAP.

She squeak kiss him?!? (laughing)

Squeaky kisses are the best kind of kisses!

Your wish is my command; the much-anticipated next chapter is up. :raritywink:

SpikeBelle, YAY!!!
I honestly don't understand ppl who ship Spike and Rarity. Putting aside the age difference, it'd still be an asymmetrical relationship. There is no challenge in it for Rarity, and this is one mare who is in it for the game. :raritywink:

Twilight's talk with Rarity had me snickering like crazy and Spike's own interaction with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle had me giggling...not sure if that's healthy or not.:twilightoops:

“I’ll say!” Pinkie Pie shouted as she sprung inside. “I’ve never seen a burning tree used as a Hearth’s Warming decoration before!”

Wait on, he just set one branch on fire and it burned out, how did he- oh, he put the hot glass ornament back on the tree didn't he? That'd do it.:twilightsheepish:
