Fahrenheit


Breaking: Last Minute may or may not actually be Best Minute

Long before she knew how to fly with thunder in her wake, in the early days before she learned how to properly use her wings at all, Spitfire knew two things: the sky was blue, and she did not belong in it.

Destiny had a different opinion.


My first piece of MLP:FiM fanfiction, released to commemorate one year of watching ponies.

That was beautifully done. Poetic and epically written. This earns a favorite

Wow, that was good. It's amazing how much you were able to pack into 2000 words.

That was amazing. So inspiring!

Spitfire is the most awesomely amazing/amazingly awesome pony there is.

This certainly was enjoyable.

6450492 6450877 Thank you! :twilightsmile:

6451084 Wow, glad you thought so! Thanks!

6451351 That's probably the most accurate sentence I've read this week.

6451618 Oh goodie, glad you liked it!

While I think I missed who was saying what, especially the "and fire burns" statements. I really enjoyed the piece.

the "and fire burns" statements.

Literally no one. #AmateurArtsyWriting

Glad you found it enjoyable!

6451351 INDEEEEEEEEEEED! And there are tons of stories here on fimfiction while she gets neglected a bit in the show.i.ytimg.com/vi/EL-wFQhpjfQ/maxresdefault.jpg
By that I mean, we need an episode starring Spitfire, the best mare!

Cause Hotheaded pony is BEST pony!

6453076 I'm doing a story right now starring Spitfire. It's a HiE story.

6453183 Not terribly fond of HiE, just the concept in general, but I'll check it out.

Woaaaaah. I got chills reading this.

Only thing I'd say - the first sentence doesn't have a full stop at the end. It looked like it might be on purpose, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

6453330 Thank you thank you! (And nice catch--while there are definitely spots with deliberate disregard for punctuation, that's actually the one sentence that very much needs a period. :twilightblush:)

6453076 Amen I say to you.

I love the style this is written in. So poetic.

6454991 Glad to hear it; thanks! :twilightsmile:

Holy woooww it's like poetry but not actually.

You painted flames onto the screen with words.

Painted flames onto the—

WHO'S BEING POETIC NOW, PUNK?
YOU.
YOU ARE.
GET OUT actually come sit next to me and we can talk about pretty language.

thank you thank you, though :D

Hmm, more poetic than what I normally read, but I can dig it. I like how you built it up so the prose follows Spitfire's mood and how her "fire" burns--from tiny ember to great roaring inferno.

Though I tend to describe her mark as more of "licking flames" than a Phoenix, but I can't deny it looks that way. Either way, objective best horse is always good ^^

6487287 Thank you! This piece definitely is more poetic than what I usually write-- glad to hear it wasn't off-putting.

Huh. I've never even considered the fact that her cutie mark might not be a flaming bird. But yes, you are absolutely right regarding Best Pony. :raritywink:

6488680 I've read a couple things where her mark has been likened to a phoenix. Dunno if you've read the Savage Skies series (if you haven't, she's amazing) but her mark has to do with a certain... ability she has. I can't say much without spoiling, but she's basically one of a very small number of high level defenders called the Celestial Knights. And when she fights, it gets heated :trollestia:

6488756 Ooh, that sounds extremely relevant to my interests. I'll have to check it out!

6488883 Having seen your blog, I should warn you.

You won't like the ship. >.>

6488900 NOOOOOOOOOOO.
Actually, my biggest issues with Soarindash are just that:
a) It robs Spitfire of the two ponies I ship her with the most
b) So many authors take the easy route and write Spitfire as the jealous psudo-antagonist instead of reconciling her with Dash/Soarin as a couple
c) Authors waste time focusing on Dash & Soarin's relationship when they should be making sure Spitfire has a happy ending
d) Why are Soarin and Dash even interested in each other at all when they should be fighting over Spitz

Never mind, I actually just don't like the ship. I'll try to read that one with an open mind, though! Who knows, it could change my opinion!

6488917 I can assure you that it's not like the ones you mentioned. Believe me, I'm with you there. And I love poor Soarin ;-;

6488921 Oh thank goodness. And I have nothing against Soarin-- he's so good-- but Spitfire just happens to be higher on the list of priorities. :heart:

6488966 Well, that's because she's objective best non-M6/Princess/CMC pony. :P

6488976 Correct statement is correct.

Oh my God,that was so amazing:rainbowkiss:....Do you know any more Spitfire stories where people don't make her a bitch? Also,EARNED A FAV AND A LIKE..AND A FOLLOW.Spitfire should get more screentime on the show than one episode each season:ajbemused:

6583049 Aw shucks, thanks! I definitely agree with you there, though I was glad we got Rarity Investigates.

As for stories, off the top of my head: Device Heretic's Thunderstruck was very much a source of thematic inspiration for this, and is probably my all-time favorite story on this site. Firebird Dahlia by The Albinocorn is incomplete as of yet, but is handling Spitfire very well so far. If you haven't yet read Moonspire Run by titanrising, it's a great little adventure story that I really enjoyed. Hope this helps! :raritywink:

Yay,thank you:pinkiehappy:
I'll go check them out.

I wasn't prepared for how literary this was going to be. Reading this was like dusting off a portion of my brain that's been dormant for far too long. Thank you :twilightsmile:

7076889 Ha, glad to be of service. Thanks for reading! :pinkiesmile:

Very poetic. I can see why Spitfire's your favorite character. :twilightsmile:

Loved it. A wonderful idea for a story and very well executed, I particularly liked the run-on sentences in the childish POV moments, like where Fleetfoot doesn't say stuff like that anymore.

I must admit to being a little confused as to how Spitfire woke up in the field - did she fly there in her sleep? Or did her grandmare sneak her out there to acclimatise her to the open sky? I'm guessing probably not the latter, as she appeared distraught an hour later.
