Calm Wind

We writers do not speak. We do not hear. We have no songs. We have no pictures. We only have scripture. From words we bring images. From words we bring emotion. From words we bring life.


This story is a sequel to That's Not Quite How He Told It...

(Takes place right after the appearance of Shining Armor and Cadance in Piercing the Heavens, but there is no need to read the behemoth to enjoy this little short.)

Twilight Sparkle is feeling down, watching her friends find love while she remains alone. She begins to wonder if as the Princess of Friendship, that is all she’s ever destined to have: Friendship. When Shining Armor and Princess Cadance come to visit, she agrees to let her BBBFF help on the matter!

And soon learns that she probably should have asked Cadance instead…

A story about longing and how searching actively for love seldom yields results. Love has a funny way of finding you.

No problem. Who says I can't make jokes too?

That was a great story, I'm glad you managed to take a break long enough from PTH to write it. Good work

My parents think I'm insane cause I was Pinkie Pie smiling when I left the garage after seeing that you wrote another story....

Eeeee this is amazing ^○^ just aswonderful as all your other stories. I can't wait to finish the rest of the chapters :rainbowkiss:


5634689 Kestrel, you magnificent bastard, I read your BOOK!

“I set it up,” Spike said holding his hands out to her.

Should be I'll.

... Fift Shades of Brae.... Really, just really. -_-

Well hopes of Flashlight have been crushed and I saw what you did with this chapter. All the flashlight stuff. Lol

So awesome! CometLight is like my third favorite ship!

“Wait… Lightning Streak of the Wonderbolts?!”

Immediate response: Oh God.....:facehoof:

Now that? That was amazing :rainbowlaugh:

Very nice. It was a fun read.:twilightsmile: plus the comet tail ship caught me offguard but not by my much since I've seen it before.

Fifty Shades of Brae


Hay Calm is Flash going to be involved in this?

You took Flashlight waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too serously. By seriously i mean legitmentally.
Best story ever!

I thought Caramel already had a girlfriend...:twilightoops:

“I really like flashlights!” the stallion suddenly cut her off.

Subtlety, thy name doth not be Calm Wind. But have a mustache anyway. In fact, have two. :moustache: :moustache:

I facepalmed when I read that.

I loved this story! You said the ponies were chosen at random but they worked out perfectly for laughs. :yay:

Also, yay! I finally found another Twilight and Comet kinda-ish shipping story! (Even if it wasn't written for shipping it's close enough.) :twilightsmile:

Absolutely fantastic. :pinkiehappy: Sudden dose of Calm Wind before Part 3, and it's on a character that I feel you do incredibly well, even if you are less certain. Twilight always feels real and relatable, and I'd say you've done one of the better portrayals I've seen of her so far. The way you mix her confidence and vulnerability is quite fantastic, and the things she says and does is darn-near identical to her official incarnation on the show. This one's going straight to Favorites.

(italics) All of my friends have been finding love interests lately… I don’t really have any stallions to interact with… love or friend… (italics)

..and it was going so well... Replace them with and accordingly.

She kept to herself when she wasn’t with her friends, but at the same time wished to be loved.

...would she date a mail pony?

Twilight was a princess now.

If this runs alongside PtH, then that should be mentioned there. (Unless it already has been)

eagerly replied. Before

eagerly replied, before - flows better.

Twilight... on blind dates...
(Also, I can write better drivel than 50SOS. I hope 50SOB is better as well! In fact... I may have to write a story for this, where Twi reads it!)

5634765 No, that's right. Twilight hadn't gotten their room ready, but Spike had. 'I'll set it up' would have been used if neither of them had gotten the room ready. Thankfully, the little dragon was paying attention.

“But… what’s wrong with Flashlight?” Flash asked while slowly clicking the flashlight named Flashlight on and off.

Goddamn it... not even 0800 here and I've got tears in my eyes from laughing!

honestly, not the way

Drop the comma.


Nu ship?


It's so cute and quite and adorb, i wanna try dis ship.

“You got that right princess babe,” he said as he casually slumped in his chair. “Saw you were takin’ dates, wanna skip to the fun part?”

Goddamn it Lightning!

OR be loved!

Imagine Twilight as Charlie

Also, dead serious. A certain mail pony would see her as a mare first, princess... somewhere down the line.

5634985 He does in the show, but how do we know they haven't broken up since then?

5635298 Now you've got me thinking of the sea shanties from AC4... :facehoof:

out of concerned

out of concern

pondering he brief

pondering the brief

everyone in town


Nope, Comet Tail can't have her! The mail pony will!


And I thank you for that :twilightsmile:

It was a sequel! I knew it! :yay:
It was a nice read.

5634689 I applause thy skill in the creation of jokes, oh great magnificent... Err... What he said.

need more of teh Cometlight
nd more of pth and all of those ships
need more,
need more,
need more,
need more,
need more,

Fifty shades of brae?
oh god I'm dying :rainbowlaugh:

CALM! :flutterrage: I LIKE FLASH LIGHT! But You have got to admit, it was pretty funny. Despite being awkward.

Still prefer Flash Light... but that was sweet. *sigh* I love the personalities you gave the stallions. that was a hoot.


Haha bouncing around your house! :pinkiecrazy:


Haha it was Fifty Shades of Yay... but then Kestrel suggested Brae instead, i couldn't say no to that! :rainbowlaugh:

And heh, i have nothing against Flashlight, but i couldn't resist the urge to poke fun at all the unnecessary drama that surrounds it. :pinkiecrazy:


I actually had NO IDEA it was a thing until after i finished writing it! :twilightsheepish:

Comet tail was chosen at random like the rest of the stallions were... imagine my surprise when i looked him up on derpibooru later and found tons of pics of him and Twilight :rainbowderp::derpytongue2:


He never misses a chance! :rainbowlaugh:


I LIKE FLASHLIGHTS! DO YOU LIKE FLASHLIGHTS?! :pinkiecrazy::rainbowlaugh:


I actually didn't know it was a ship :twilightblush: i chose Comet at random from a list of ponies like the rest, I was quite surprised to learn it was a thing :pinkiegasp:


Direct your applause to Kestrel, he thought up that one! :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowlaugh:


It honestly blows my mind how much people hate on that ship for absolutely no reason. So i decided to poke fun at the drama :rainbowlaugh: Flash Sentry: "What's wrong with Flashlight?" Twilight: "Nothing...":moustache:


Oh, that's right :twilightoops:

WELP! considering he was a bit douchy here (and was a little bit in Weight of Responsibility as well) i guess it's safe to say that didn't last :rainbowlaugh:

I really just wanted to do "I lost my bits" :derpytongue2:
