Roseluck doesn't like to admit her crush to most ponies; the few she's told were too busy laughing to hear her explain herself. She's ready to give up on the notion of confessing her love, until the town jeweler offers his encouragement and even his assistance in helping her secure her "special somepony". Would he have been so enthusiastic in helping if he knew the "special somepony" is a "special somegriffon", she wonders?

UPDATE 03/31/13: This story is not dead. My current plan is to do one last minor revision to these chapters, then finish and publish Chapter 3. I know that there are a lot of people waiting for more of this story, and my last intent is to disappoint them. I will try my hardest to make it worth the wait.

maybe the best shipfic concept ever
bravo.

I don't know what to make of this....i like the flower trio..but i despise guilda with a passion...interesting however... i may be back

wow... I like it. More love for Gilda, and pony\griffon really nice, not to mention that pairing is FIRST

This is going to be good.

Never saw this pairing before, and I'd love to see where it goes. Tracked and faved.

Oh my yes, I want to hug Roseluck! Go girl!

I'm interested in this, like what was Rose and Gilda's interaction even, have they talked. Also I'm always curious to see interpretations of Gilda, I just hope she isn't some sad sack who's poppa beat her. Again. :unsuresweetie:

Anyway, I am totes monitoring this story. It's got a good start.

And then Gilda pushes her into the mud and calls her a dweeb.

A well-done little fanfic. Good job. :twilightsmile:

... This has potential. Tell me, what is the main synopsis for the scope of the story?
How are you going to introduce conflict between the two parties? More importantly, how will Gilda react? It definitely has to take some time to buid up the relationship. Gilda isn't the one to simply accept Roseluck over the course of a few chapters. There must be daring adventure, danger, perhaps eve the real possibility of death and revealinng more of Roseluck's inner character. And what of the Mane 6? They will probably indeed be obstacles that would probably try and sway Roseluck from hooking up with Gilda, at least at first.
Granted, they ARE the Mane 6, but you have to take into consideration of the relationships of Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash.

Perhaps induce some truama of some nightmare into Gilda that she can't get out of, only Roseluck of whom can save her on a very difficult journey, maybe even be severely injuried in the process. That will be ripe for creating inner turmoial inside Gilda, two sides waging war over her mind.

(P.S., Typing this out on a Tablet. Very slow operation.)

I am intrigued by your premise. There's not enough Roseluck shipfics out there, at least not from what i've seen. Anyway I look forward to seeing more :twilightsmile:

Amazing.

Also FIRST POST! :pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp:

Haha yes this is great. The premise and the first chapter had me hooked, but now, now I have faith in this going good places. Rose is wonderfully lovestruck and deluded, Gilda is actually Gilda and not a tragic mockery of herself, Karat manages to establish an unique, likable personality despite being a minor character and the fact I've never seen him used in anything else before, your prose is enjoyable to read and free of noticeable error; okay yeah I think that's enough praise.

I'm not sure if I even want Rose to win Gilda over at this rate. The hopeless romantic shipper in me craves it, but it also seems like it would ruin the brilliant absurdist half-parody you've got going on. Either way, I'm eagerly anticipating seeing where you take this.

still the weirdest shipfic i've ever read, still really, really good.

Isn't she moving a bit fast there?

Good luck, Rose! :rainbowderp:

Love this. Waiting for more! Such a unique character set and so fun to read.

This is great, I can not wait for the next chapter.

This story is, to put it simply, damn funny. And not in the silly random way, oh no, it's humor all comes from the characters. Rose is hilariously neurotic and the way the author depicts her feelings about Gilda is fantastic, especially the "dream sequences" in chapter 2. The kindly jewelry store pone that Rose goes to for advice totes cracks me up, my favorite being where he reflects on how his wife is "no longer with him". Then there's Gilda herself, now it's still early on, but I thought she was great, she's grumpy and utterly dismissive and makes it ABUNDANTLY clear to Rose that she's not interested in so much as TALKING to anypony.

Do please keep em coming, this is funny and adorable stuff. You've got a great sense of comedy and character.

Yeah, thass me. I run that site.

798950 Awesome! Gilda really is the best, though.

I am very intrigued to see how this story plays out. in layman's terms MOOAAARRR!!!

Interesting premise. Let's see how well done this can be. javascript:smilie(':twilightsmile:');

GILDA THAT WAS HEARTLESS! GREAT JOB!javascript:smilie(':raritycry:');

To quote a good story I once read...

"Bluh?"

:rainbowlaugh:

Actually, that was exactly how I thought this chapter would go.

Above all else, Rose moves fast as a torpedo.

1000037 I'll take that as a compliment. :twilightsheepish:

It's more of a... exclamation of curiosity.

This is the best crack I have ever read. Want more D:

:heart:

Yay Gilda and somepony willing to understand her XD

L4

:heart:

Yes this is so perfect and IC XD...

Really rare when you think about it. I just don't know where this story going to go. Making it like ten times as awesone.

I like to think that throwing someone into a lake is actually a Gryphon sign of affection.

Interesting, I'm liking it so far. Especially the first interaction going so disastrously wrong.

Is this story dead? It hasn't updated in months, and I don't want to fave it if I'm not going to see the end of it.

This story has so much potential... I hope you finish it. :applecry:

Rose has her work cut out for her. This is excellent.
