Not checking in here. I may post stories because my patrons are nice and like ponies. Otherwise out of the fandom, sorry peeps.

Picture yourself on a deck on a castle
with damson plum trees and blackberry skies.
Somepony calls you, you answer quite slowly
a mare with kaleidoscope eyes.

Damask silk flowers of purple and blue
Towering over your horn.
Look for the mare with the moon in her eyes
and she's gone.

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
where grinning bat-ponies eat marbled moon pies.
Everyone smiles as you drift past the towers
that grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the stars
and you're gone.

Picture yourself on a train in a station
with pastel-maned ponies with sparkling gem ties.
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle:
the mare with kaleidoscope eyes.

Song lyrics by The Beatles and the always-amazing Jordanis.

I love the beatles, and I love this fanfic.

Haven't read this yet, but the use of Lennon's lyrics in the description is brilliant. I'll make sure to read it soon!! :pinkiehappy:

5443905 Thank you very much!

5443906 I can't take credit for the lyrics, that's all Jordanis, but I think I did a fairly good story based on them. Hope you enjoy it when you get a chance.

The songs from the Beatles do leave me feeling different emotions, so this story delivered the perfect amount of romantic emotions.

Nicely done. I like the two chatting up about design. Also yay for Voice Actress Self Shipping!

5443920 Glad you liked it. :twilightsmile:

5444039 Yet another reason why they are an obvious couple! I actually find it a little weird that almost nobody else ships them. The Luna/Rarity group on here only had three stories in it before I added this one.

OMG! I love this story. Man so many people don't ship Rarity and Luna! There is only one fic that has Rariluna... and this is the second one! I love this fic! Keep up the good work!:pinkiehappy:

5444097 Check out this group for at least two more. I haven't had time to read the others yet, so I don't know if they're any good, though. Hopefully they are.

5444081 I mostly Ship Luna/Shy, Luna/Twi, and a bit of Luna/Pie..

5444167 I totally ship Twi/Luna. I haven't seen any good Luna/Pie or Luna/Shy, I should go find some. I can imagine Luna/Pie being awesome and hilarious.

So, this is inspired by a Beatles tune, eh? Neat! (I wonder what kind of story you would write based on Frank Zappa's tune "Ms. Pinky". :pinkiehappy:)
I like this story. It was amusing seeing Luna acting like she popped a few pills of Dramaquine (from Prescott Pharmaceuticals) in the beginning.
The mutual frustrations the two mares have is something I haven't considered before. This will get a fave from me. Nice job.

5444268 Thanks!

Honestly the bits with Luna being ridiculously melodramatic at the beginning are my favorite part of the whole story. I'd have written it just for them, even if I didn't like the rest of the idea. :pinkiehappy:

If you haven't already, read Sacrifice by karrakaz then add it to the RariLuna group. Hits several bases nicely: Starts with TwiLuna, segues into TwiLestia, then caps it off with (teased) RariLuna.

5444284 RariLuna and Twilestia? I must investigate this immediately!

Cover image by I don't know, because the original source seems to have vanished. If you know the artist, please let me know so I can credit them.

The source listed on Derpibooru was off by one character: ask-luna-and-rarity.tumblr.com links to a blank blog, while ask--luna-and-rarity.tumblr.com has the sauce you're looking for here.

5444319 Awesome! Thanks very much.

5444489

Correct. It's about ponies.

I don't believe I've seen this pairing ever. You did an excellent job

5444911 It doesn't seem to be a common one, no. And thanks! :pinkiehappy:

Th.. that was...
BEAUTIFUL :pinkiesad2:

Marry me plz :heart:

Mad

5444489 Surprisingly neither is the song.

5444988 Aww, thanks! :pinkiehappy: Sadly I am already married.

5445191 Well, the Beatles have claimed it isn't, but I'm not sure I believe them.

5446231 Lennon has said so a few times.

O. M. GAWD.... This was AMAZING!!!!! INSPIRATION HAS STRUCK MY MIND!!!!!!

This is Beautiful I tell you... B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L............!!!!! MAKE MORE..... NOW..... One more thing,

LOVE THE COVER!! :heart::derpytongue2::heart:!

5446567 Aww, thank you very much!

I don't have anymore LunaXRarity planned right now, but if you like shipfics, I do have a TwilightXCelestia one you could check out.

This site needs more Luna x Rarity.

5447304 I fully agree!

This was a good read. Luna's voice sounded weird at times -- I can't imagine her using neologisms like "sleepyhead" even if she's being conscious of her speech -- but this is, as you say, an uncommon ship and you sell the idea well.

5444234
There's LunaPie friendshipping in the "My Little Pony: Friends Forever" comic - issue #4 in specific. It's actually rather magnificently written, probably my favorite of the comics, even more so than Luna's solo issue -- it manages to be insightful on both of them at once in different ways.

5447691 I remember that comic, it was terrific!

I will admit I let Luna be a little more modern and a bit less anachronistic in this story than I usually do. I think it's a bit of a reaction to that, to having written so MUCH stuff with a Luna who's very formal and old-fashioned 100% of the time, )most of which I haven't finished yet, alas) and I wanted to do something a bit different, with a Luna who is making a bit of an effort to pick up modern terms. With obviously mixed success.

I liked the story. Rarity's personality and willingness to go on a date with Luna sort of threw me off and I don't quite agree with it or the romance but my personal opinion doesn't change the fact that it was a hearfelt and fun story to read

5446282

Sadly, I am already married.

aww...
Also.
Would you mind if I did a song cover of this? Those lyrics are perfect :heart:

All credit for lyrics will go to Jordanis, and we'll link to this story too =3

5450506 Oh wow! That would be AMAZING! Please do!

Mad

5446231 John Lennon said he was inspired by a drawing his son made that he called Lucy in the sky with diamonds, there are a few interviews where he said it.

5446813

I like different types of shippings.. but I usually go better with regular ships that seem to be shown in the show....... Anyways, I would still luv to check out more of ur stories!

............................... I now have this weird feeling that there should be more Luna x Rarity stories... Keep up the great work!

I... I... speechless.

Everything about this was perfect. Your Luna was marvelous*, Rarity was lovely, and their interactions were beautiful.

*Particularly the melodramatic "wallowing in misery" at the beginning. That was hilarious.

You should write more of this!:raritywink:

5459876 Thank you!

The melodrama at the beginning was my favorite part.

5460344 Heh... same here. (Thou even got the archaic speak right!:derpytongue2:)

5461232 Hah! People who can't get Luna's archaic dialect correct really bother me. If you don't know how to do it, just don't do it! Or get an editor who knows how to do it, or something!

5461259 I know... it really is quite a bother. Just goes to show how some people don't really care, not in an actual sense.

I actually researched it a while ago, although I did forget to put it in the dialogue of the actual story I was writing... I should probably go fix that.:twilightblush:

Nice little story here.

5464939 Thank you. :twilightsmile:

5464975 Welcome friend. I might go work on my stories soon, now I feel a bit inspired

5465003 :pinkiehappy: My muse is still in hiding from the holidays, I think. I had to spend like three hours yesterday writing 750 words for the write-off, because I really wanted to join, and the end result was not terribly great.

5465045 Did you check under the bed? They love to hide under the bed

5538828 Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Though it's always interesting to get other perspectives, because I felt like the Luna melodrama at the beginning was the best part, and also made the most sense in light of what we know about her character and her past. (I presume that's the part you think is "forced".) :twilightsmile:

5540533 He he he. Well, at least your user name is accurate, then. That's some strange reasoning, all right, but I think I get what you mean. :raritywink:

I have the sudden temptation to do something like thiswwgwrthezrjruzmtetzjtzslzuotyjststzkytukstuketuk
That's how awesome this story is. Coming from me, that is actually very high praise.:twilightsmile:

5567428 He he he. Well thank you! :twilightsmile:

ech
I am not sure
I admit I am more of the TwiLuna shipper and basicly never thought of ship Rarity with anypony ...ehm...my waifu,mine...ehm :raritystarry:

But it was very nicely done and I admit that from this perspective they have much in common and I would not mind a sequel here, especially because both Rarity and Luna are my first and second most favorite chracters respectively.
It was very well written and with some amazing details that made me coo

I am softie:twilightblush:
