Me. Take it or leave it.



This story is a sequel to GOAL!

After fouling up an attempt to ask Applejack out, you try the next best thing to get her attention: offering to fill a position as a farm hand on Sweet Apple Acres. While not your initial intention, you decide to make the most of it while you can, and use this opportunity to show off for the girl of your dreams. Over time, your attempts at work aren't spectacular, but they do more than impress Applejack. In fact, you two may just spark a tight, emotional—and maybe even sensual—bond . . . .

The fifth installment of "The Steam Collection". Second-person present-tense perspective set in the EG universe. Rated 'Teen' for some sexy, steamy moments.

Wow! That was better than Goal!!

Ok, peoples other than Lightning reading this, I apologize if this is rude, but this guy has something called a 'life', so, just buzz off and give him space, you got your gift! Give him a gift back; give him space for a while!! OK?!

6373022 Ehehe . . . thanks for speaking for me, but it's okay. I can handle myself. I appreciate it, though.

I appreciate the fave, too. :ajsmug:

Yay! And, like what 6373022 said, this was better than GOAL!

Who's next, Sunset or Twilight?

Keep it up, bud. Doin' good schtuff.

6373075 Sunset. I don't have anything solid on Twilight yet. Once I see "Friendship Games", I might have something.

Thanks for the fave! :ajsmug:

This perspective is basically the whole story of most of our love lives: want to ask someone out, can't do it, continually embarrass yourself in front of crush, and bam, said crush knew the jig from the start.

This and Shy Girl are my 2 favorites of this series so far. :twilightsmile: Though I noticed you misspelled Macintosh the first time you mentioned him. :rainbowlaugh:

6373133 I always thought it went without the "A". At least that's what the spellcheck tells me. :applejackunsure:

But I'm glad you liked it. :twilightsmile:

Oh! Sorry...:twilightsheepish: :facehoof:

Little something called "Frustration" took over me for a while. :facehoof:

WOAH! I just broke the grey like/dislike barrier! :rainbowlaugh: But seriously, this is your best one yet. You took your time, added more personality to the love interest, and fleshed out the characters, making it a lovely little one-shot. Great work :pinkiehappy::heart:

Well, five down. Who's next, I wonder...

6373171 Well, I don't have anything solid for Twilight just yet, so that leaves only one. :raritywink:

YAHOO! This was sure a good story. :) It's hard to tell which one i like at this point.
Probably the Pinkie Pie one, but the other ones have been good as well.

I can't wait to see what love has in store for Sunset and Twilight, and maybe other girls in the far future, but i am only guessing at this point.

It is my Birthday, I got a shit load of Transformers, and this as well.


Great story. Keep up the good work.

6373221 So glad you enjoyed! Thanks for the faves! :ajsmug::ajsmug:


Oh yes. Summed up m' teen years, right there. Of course, there's the other thing that often happens: feelings develop when neither of you were looking for (or even wanting) a relationship in the first place.

This story along with Shy and Rarity is among my favorites. Great job. Hope to see more in Sunset/Twilight story.

6373253 Thanks a lot. And thanks for the fave! :ajsmug:

"The Steam Collection"

I also have a steam collection. Observe:


Can I get followers now too?

Well, that was delightfully yummy~♡

Great story although this is the exact opposite of how I'd act around a girl although it's more entertaining if he is a super nervous around girls. Also I'd be so up for a twilight story or sunset shimmer. Keep up the good work!

Omg ideaaaaaaa! :raritywink: celestia Luna, moon dancer and cadence would be amazing

6373375 Believe me, I'd love to. But I'm told that this same idea could get stale after awhile. I'm starting to think it is already. :applejackunsure: But I will think about it. :twilightsmile:

6373383 true but I believe as long as there is enough variation with situations and plot that you could continue the series without a hitch.

Also I don't think that it's getting stale; I quite enjoy this series

6373383 This kind of story, get stale?

6373527 Uhhhh . . . yeah. Okay . . . . :twilightoops:

Well, uh, thanks for the fave! :ajsmug:

A story about one of my favorite characters! Dude! So going in my favorites! :pinkiecrazy:

6373598 Thanks so much for that. Glad you enjoyed it! :ajsmug:


Hell yeah I did! And I think this gave me a small story idea about a story that got deleted sorta on its own. But yeah. I really did like it, it reminds me of my past which I really hate explaining. :ajsleepy:

6373622 Well, I won't press you on that. But I am flattered to know it inspired you so much. Thanks again for reading. :pinkiesmile:

Once again another great story that has been featured.

Why can I only like this once? I love the series. That's not something I say much, especially when it comes to romance. You're probably my favorite fanfic writer on here.

6373687 Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much that means to me. It's comments like those that keep me going. Thanks for reading! :pinkiehappy:

6373669 I hope it sticks around for awhile this time. :twilightsheepish: Thanks for the fave! :ajsmug:

[quoteApplejack's brother, Big McIntosh, stands next to her, eyeing you with a combination of disapproval and concern. “Eeyup,” he adds simply.] Isn't it Macintosh? :eeyup:

As you finish loading the crate and hammer the top onto it, Granny Smith speaks up once again, “Now, you're gonna need somethin' ta drink, sonny. Take a load off an' have some water.”

You double over, breathing heavily but proud of your accomplishment. “No, no . . . I'm . . . good . . . .” Those are your last words before you collapse to the floor of the barn.

Call it my experience working with my hands, outside in the Desert sun. But, I kinda saw that coming. Heck, we keep a Couple Igloo® coolers nearby when we are working outside. :rainbowdetermined2:

Even now, you’re impressed by the muscle underneath the skin; it’s almost as if she’d spent her life kicking apples out of the trees instead of picking them normally.

I wouldn't be surprised if she did... :ajsmug:

This is amazing! Keep up the awesome stories @LightningSword! :moustache:

6373738 I thought so, too, but I guess the spell check disagreed. Go figure. :applejackunsure:

Thanks for reading, and for the fave! :ajsmug:

Just like the others, I enjoyed it!
Time to get to Twilight!
Or Sunset, whichever comes first. :pinkiehappy:

Seriously my friend, this is what I felt after reading this story. Thank you so much for giving us this gem to read! :pinkiehappy:

Every like and fave you'll be getting from this will be well deserved. :twilightsmile:

6373775 Well, I don't have a concept for Twilight's story just yet, so Sunset will be next in line. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the fave and follow. I appreciate it! :ajsmug:

6373792 Thank you so much, my friend. I'm so glad this little story of mine has made so many people so happy. And thanks for the favorite, as well. It means a lot to me. :ajsmug:

Great Scott over 6k words! My how have your stories progressed. Let's hope the trend continues in Sunset's fic. Also if you do Twilight will it be Crystal Prep twi or Equestria twi? I kinda want to see the awkward Twilight having to deal with a crush.

Lets hope Hasbro pull a Scott Cawthon and release Friendship Games early. :pinkiecrazy:
Nah, just kidding. :trollestia:
