Vanilla oat swirl ice cream is a girl's best friend when she's alone on Hearts and Hooves Day, and at half-off, it would be a shame not to buy any. But when Rarity runs into Applejack at the store, Applejack offers to keep her company.

Rarity is thrilled that she has someone to commiserate with about being single.

Applejack is happy to have a date for Hearts and Hooves Day.

This may be a problem even vanilla oat swirl can't solve.

Oh my gosh this is just what I needed after hurriedly writing a sorta Rarijack sorta Valentines sorta angst fic that is still awaiting approval
Kudos for light, comical fic, my friend. You have yet again mastered the art of Rarijack

This was really well written!:pinkiehappy: there will be more, right?

I need ice cream.
And to meet somebody in an ice cream bar.

6935918
Yup! Chapter 2 is coming soon. Glad you're liking it so far.

6935875
Thanks! Rarity drama is the best kind of drama. :heart:

6935883
I'm glad it hit the spot. Ever since I found out about Valentine's Day ice cream sales, I knew I had to write this.

6935948
Awww. :pinkiesad2:

Well, good luck with that!

Gotta admit I've never been to an ice cream bar myself. Though I've had more than a few. :rainbowwild:

6936113
I'm glad! Always really nice to hear folks enjoyed my stuff. :twilightsmile:

Adorable. I love your stories!:heart:

6936149
Aw, thanks! I'm glad you do. I write stuff that I hope other folks are interested in, so I'm always glad to hear that others find them worth their time. :heart:

Wow!!! What a great first chapter, know wonder it's on my favourites list!!! Can't wait for the next update!!! I was a little said because I forgot that it was a multiple chapter story, until you said that the next chapter was Mares' Night In, so I was like yes!:pinkiehappy:

6936333
I'm glad you approve. :duck:

Poor Applejack. But I'm sure Rarity will figure it out... eventually. :raritywink:

6936402
Yup! There is more coming on down the line. :ajsmug:

Of course someone would have to write about one of my favorite ships for Hearts and Hooves Day. :raritystarry:

6936511
Of course I did! I wanted a RariJack Valentine's Day story! And you know what they say, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

Or something like that, anyway.

I'm glad I managed to hit what you were looking for. :heart:

6936542

:heart:

Oh, and congratulations on 1000 followers! I probably noticed that really late, but oh well.

6936555
Not at all! I just hit the 1,000 mark today. I'm glad so many of you folks think I'm worth keeping an eye on. :heart:

:twilightsheepish: Hay Spike good and bad news
:moustache: Wuts that Twi?
:twilightsheepish: Rarity swore off stallions!
:moustache: GREAT!
:twilightsmile: She's going out with Apple jack tonight
:moustache: Great! Wow!
:twilightoops: what? I thought you'd be upset
:moustache: Apple pie and Vanilla oat swirl yummy!
:twilightoops: you're not mad?
:moustache: Just like at Barn Yard Bargains - :raritystarry::applejackconfused:Two for one sale. . . .:facehoof:

6936633
:rainbowlaugh:

Always look on the bright side of life. :moustache:

aw sweet a Rarijack fic. Time to get reading!

6936826
Yup! And thanks for reading. :heart:

More will be coming Soon (TM).

Great chapter! Can't wait for the next one. :pinkiehappy:

6937744
Thanks! I'm working on it as I type. :twilightsmile:

Why did this story get so many dislikes?

Great characterisation, and the hook at the end of cute sappy misunderstanding about to happen is leaving me wanting more. I am looking forward to the next chapter, curse my weakness for these pastel ponies.

6938496
No clue, I'm afraid.

6938576
Heh, thanks! I'm going to try and get up the next chapter soon. :twilightsmile:

6938496

I'm going to guess because of Saint Valentine. He cursed it.

Obviously the thought never crossed their minds that they were showing everypony else what they were missing as they languished in solitude.

...<sniff>Stop talking about my love life for faar too long!

But who would want to suffer through Hearts and Hooves Day without such comforts, however cold they might be?

And that is why he's filthy rich.

“Or is it that I am simply too perfect? Am I a paragon, an unapproachable idol? Does nopony dare to cast their eyes so high as me?”

No, that is certainly not the case.

Bet Apple Bloom’ll be real pleased

Somehow I can see Applejack having the smallest sweet tooth in her family and the Mane Six.

Rarity tilted her head. “Isn’t Apple Bloom a little young to be eating ice cream on Hearts and Hooves Day?”
“Uh, what?” Applejack narrowed her eyes at Rarity. “Is that supposed to be a euphemism for somthin’?”

I would eat all of Applejack's ice cream on Hearts and Hooves Day. That worked rather well.

“Huh? No, no!” Applejack shook her head quickly. “I just make pies.”

That could be a euphemism. Big Mac makes...No, not going there in a Teen fic.

All the good ones are taken or gay anyway.”
“I’m pretty sure from the interest Trend was showin’ me, he ain’t neither.”

I would pay any amount of money for that line to be aired, in this context. Perfect.

“Heh, now what gave you an idea like that? Him keepin’ his eyes on my flank half the time?”

Those are some fiiine flanks Applejack. She should be insulted if no-one stares.

“Well, at least he weren’t as bad as Prince Blueblood.”

Blueblood made it quiet clear he wasn't interested in Rarity, yet she insisted on following him around and grew upset when he tried driving her away. Rarity was in the wrong that night.

“So, givin’ up on stallions forever, huh?”
That smirk really was unbecoming.

Applejack sees a chance, and she's taking it.

“Hey, it’s a win-win for me,” Applejack said, smirking again as she climbed back onto her hooves.

There is no problem smirking when you are right. And Applejack is right often.

“I’m workin’ most of the day with Granny Smith, but uh, if you’d like maybe I could take you out for dinner?” Applejack’s smile showed far too many teeth, but it didn’t matter.
“Why Applejack, that’s a marvelous idea!”
Applejack blinked. “What? Really? You mean, you want to?” She leaned forward eagerly.

It begins...

I have to admit, I'm always happy to see line-by-line reactions like this.

Thank you. I'm glad you've been entertained thus far. :twilightsmile:

This kinda made me feel bad that I don't mind being single on Valentine's/Hearts and Hooves Day, if only because of the clearance on candy the day after.

Anywho, very interesting story, other than that whole I-feel-bad-about-liking-being-single personal take, it's really funny and cute. Plus the characters seem on par to what I'd expect, so cool. I look forward to the next chapter.

6945786
Thanks!

And yeah, there's nothing wrong with being single. Rarity is just being a drama llama. :raritywink:

I'm actually planning on going to see if I can score any Valentine's Day candy today on clearance. :trixieshiftright:

6945025
Rewatch Best Night Ever. Rarity may have fantasized but Blueblood is the one who approached her not the other way around.

6946275 They saw each other and she chased him when he left the hall. He said two lines to her and walked away, and that did not leave a good impression in her mind. How many gold-diggers has he had to fight off in his life? Isn't being preemptive the best way to drive them off?

Thanks! I'm glad you finally got around to it and ended up liking it!

I'm going to crack down on getting the next chapter of this story done after I finish the story I'm presently working on, so hopefully it will be up by not this weekend but the next one. :twilightsmile:

7083754
It's a story about why Flurry Heart is an alicorn, actually, focused on Shining Armor and Cadance.

I've had it planned for a couple months now but I've been struggling to get it done.

Oh the torment!!!! :raritycry:
This is such a fabulous story. The characters are so well done. I can literally hear the voices. Plus their chemistry is on point and so adorable. I really can't wait for more. Plus the miscommunication is killing me. :ajsleepy: Applejack needs to know soon before she messes things up!

7250886
Thanks! I need to finish this up. My main point of indecision has to do with whether or not I want to make this the long version of the story or the shorter version of the story; I need to talk with my editors about it.

Hopefully I will get more of this story up soon; chapter 2 is mostly done, but it needs an editing pass done and I need to decide on how it ends so I decide which way I end up going with it length-wise.

I'm glad you enjoyed what is here, though; I love RariJack (as you might have guessed from my other stories). I'm glad you ended up reading Crepes and enjoying that as well.

The moment Rarity began dramatically yelling in the middle of the ice-cream aisle, I knew I was reading something good. Can't wait for the next chapter!

7493725
Glad to see you've been liking my stories!

Yeah, I need to get the next chapter of this edited and pushed out the door. I've been sitting on it for far too long.

7493823

Glad to see you've been liking my stories!

Sure thing!

Yeah, I need to get the next chapter of this edited and pushed out the door. I've been sitting on it for far too long.

I know that feeling all too well.

It's cute can't wait for the next chap

Chapter 2, Mares' Night In, is coming Soon™.

And here we are, over a year later, with only chapter one still. :pinkiesad2: Do you need any help?

Titanium... this was beautifully written and hilarious..... CONTINUE IT!

For the love of Celestia, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CONTINUE THIS!!!

A very sweet fic! I like how it's just them having a silly conversation in the ice cream aisle. There's no big reveal or confession or date, and while that would have been fun, this felt more natural and leaves it open at the end. Would be fun to read a follow up on this, but it certainly works well as a fun little one-shot.

(read this a while back and forgot to comment, might as well fix that now!)

8544461
Heh. This is actually the first chapter of a much longer thing, but I realized while writing the second chapter that I wasn't happy with the end of it, and realized it was going to end up much longer if I did what I was thinking.

I haven't figured out what I'm doing with it.

I'm glad you liked what I've written here, though, and that you found it fun. :ajsmug:

What is this I need more!

Very nice read overall, and the conversation and soon to be see misunderstanding both make sense and are wonderful.

Just got into this ship, and oooooh dang im enjoying this so far. Hope you update soon :)

9090649
Aw, thanks!

Yeah, I really need to get back on the horse, so to speak.
